Welcome

Hi!

This is the wiki for TTDPatch, an unofficial gameplay-enhancing and bug-fixing patch for the game Transport Tycoon Deluxe, written by Chris Sawyer. TTDPatch was originally written by Josef Drexler, but today we have a whole Patch Team working on it! For something bleeding-edge from the individual members, check out their Patch Versions (NB: These may not be more recent than the latest official builds)

The NewGRF specifications can now be found on their own wiki.

Hopefully, this wiki will soon get filled with all sorts of useful information about TTDPatch (and Transport Tycoon, of course), but if you can't find what you're looking for here, try looking at The Transport Tycoon Forums, which also hosts the official forums for TTDPatch.

If you're looking for a specific page, try the List of pages (you can search for a page name there too).

If you register and login, you can create new pages, and edit existing pages to add more content. This wiki uses TT-Forums for its user accounts, so if you already have an account on the forums, you should just be able to hit "Login" to sign in.
