In case you just can’t have enough of the beta footage, here’s a quick 40min stream I did the other day – Unfortunately it’s muted due to issues with OBS that I didn’t catch before streaming.
But you can just ask here if you’ve got any questions. (I’ll probably make a few, longer streams once I ensure I can record with my mic on)
I’m fairly new to the game so expect some basic mistakes. 😛August 19, 2014 at 17:50 #3142
You can skip the first two minutes of Map Generation to go straight to the gameplay*August 19, 2014 at 18:30 #3151baronjutterParticipant
Might want to re-do with sound.August 19, 2014 at 18:36 #3154
Yes, definitely hehehe 😀August 19, 2014 at 20:25 #3161olahaldorParticipant
Refreshing to finally see the game in better image quality for a change. 🙂August 19, 2014 at 21:36 #3163
Welp – Managed to record another session without voice again. This time I blame Logitech entirely for resetting my audio outputs without notifying me of it. (Making notes here to double check that for next time…)
So yeah… If you want another 1½ hour of ingame music and nothing else it’s available now. :/August 19, 2014 at 21:38 #3164hertParticipant
I noticed in your video that you use a lot stops in the cities. Is that really necessary? I have seen that people will walk to your stations so you wouldnt need that many. But I could be wrong.August 19, 2014 at 21:45 #3166
Force of habit, and I haven’t really tested how far the busstop coverage is – I like to have a good coverage to feed my trains and intercity lines.
Strictly speaking the objective here is to connect the Residential zones with Commercial and Industry (But not C & I together). The circular lines with lots of stops save me from redoing the lines too much when trams and city expansion happen. It also looks pretty. 🙂
Looking back at the footage, the bitrate could be higher – But since Twitch won’t let viewers decide their downstream quality, I can’t really push it higher if I want to let people watch it live… 🙁

Ah cool stuff. I noticed also you use the circular design road station. Whats different about it from the other ones I have seen?August 19, 2014 at 22:30 #3173
The big one? It has a higher capacity than the small bus stops, making it a great idea for a pick up/drop off point for the intercity passengers, since it won’t fill up as fast.August 22, 2014 at 23:15 #3389
And another video – This time with my microphone working (a slight miracle). It ends a bit sudden an hour in when the game crashed though to my annoyance.
(There are a few sudden pauses and mic mutes – Roommates walking around in my room unannounced. I’ll see if I can figure out a “pause stream” function or something for future streams)August 23, 2014 at 00:17 #3392GeoffersHParticipant
Thank you Mansen for showing us your video’s. The best so far, when it comes to showing how the game developes. I notice that you have familiar town names, so I take it that you can name each town to what you like. Just one more question. Are the videos done in Sandbox mode or in the game mode as you seem to be spending lots of money to get all the lines operating.
Really looking forward to getting my pre-ordered game.August 23, 2014 at 00:23 #3393
Afraid not – They’re just the regular “English language” town names. If you’re playing the German version, you’ll get German towns (equally silly ones). Both are kept in easy to edit files if you want different names though.
There’s just the one gamemode right now – The economy probably hasn’t been entirely balanced yet I imagine. (The 1% loans are a bit of a no-brainer at the moment).
Everything is expensive early on, especially the railroads (Doesn’t help that the trains are really slow and powerless early on either) Hope I’ll be able to take a savegame to the lategame and see how the economy adapts – beta stability willing. 😀August 23, 2014 at 01:55 #3394GeoffersHParticipant
Again, thanks for the info. Since watching your streaming in full screen, I can clearly see all the pop up boxes and what does what, when building new lines etc. I suppose once you get into it, it all becomes pretty easy to understand.August 23, 2014 at 22:38 #3439
Another video is up – I managed to unplug my Mic half an hour in like an idiot though.
