    Has anyone tested this yet?

    Voxel Tycoon

    Transport Tycoon Deluxe is my all time favorite game, so I have been dreaming of a modern incarnation. This looks exactly what I have been waiting for.

    Saw someone post it on the openttd Reddit yesterday but I dismissed it as a mobile phone game.

    Is it good?

    Okay, after some 4 hours. It's promising, but not without issues.

    Pros:
    - It looks great in overall. like the looks
    - Solid UI and infodesign
    - Research is a nice addition
    - Music is great
    - Expanding the play area is nice (didn't open the next area yet)
    - Factorio style manufacturing is at least a nice idea, don't know after a few hours if it's solid (turning wood to planks and beams and taking those to different locations)


    Cons:
    - Laying the tracks and especially bridges, quite buggy
    - It's too easy to mess up routings (if car is filled with wrong goods, it cannot pick the right ones)
    - Car routing is messed up (trucks might drive to closest city to make an u-turn)
    - tutorial is only for the start, laying the tracks or manufacturing would need more tutorials

    Promising - the foundations are there but perhaps I'd recommend to wait a bit before playing.
