Hello folks, welcome to the new blog.
Two months ago I quit my job as a bus driver with the Brisbane City Council. It was a good job, but the shift work, weekend work and overtime was very tiring. I missed having the time and energy to be creative.
Transport Tycoon has been a favourite hobby of mine since the original game came out in 1994, and I’ve spent most of the last two months working on completing some OpenTTD projects, including – finally! – the 1.0 release of the UK Railway Set and updates for av8. Currently I’m working on TaI industries and UK houses – the list of projects is never ending.
However, fun though OpenTTD is, I still need to make enough money to eat and pay the bills. Most of that will come from boring contract work, but additionally I will be using this blog as a portfolio of sorts, and posting things that people may want to purchase; poster prints, t-shirts, mugs perhaps? 3D printable objects? If you have any ideas of what you would like to see, please do comment on this entry.
I also have a donation button, here;
