Quite frankly, TF in its current state could easily be classified as an early access game. The core features work (most of the time), but compared to OpenTTD the only area where TF stands out is the graphics really. There’s so many basic features missing in TF, such as auto-replace vehicles, crossings and so on. Sure, it sounds great that you’re able to build track however you want it, but the truth is that you aren’t unless the land is completely flat and there’s no road near it.
If focus is even slightly switching to making a TF2 already (which would surprise me), a lot of customers should be pissed really. There’s a lot of potential in TF, but it does need a lot of work to justify the current price tag.
