A short description from the creator behind the project;

OpenTTD is an open source clone of Transport Tycoon Deluxe, a game that is focused on transportation. This suggested project goes significantly beyond this. The concept would give the player more responsibility in the management of industries and other businesses that are included in the GDP computation. In this scenario, transportation would simply become just another industry to be managed. The player would be in charge of a conglomerate. The idea is to implement a more realistic economical framework based on real data and on the current OTTD platform. We will simulate a NEW WORLD already built (like CINDINI maps) with realistic data (based on the economy of the US) from 1990 to 2010. The name of the project could be "OpenGDP - A global economy game implemented as an add-on to the OpenTTD platform".
I have already setup the mechanism. We just need artists to create new buildings, and devs to implement the mechanism.

This project is still at the idea stage and whether or not it's going to be further developed is yet to be determined. For us to widen the views and in the end get a better foundation on which to make a final decision as far as this specific project concerns, we are inviting up to 5 members to participate in a Reference Group, allowing full access to the Management Tycoon area for its duration.

If you are interested to participate in this Reference Group, please send me a pm. We especially encourage OpentTTD devs. to join... :)

Due to a low interest the proposed Reference Group for the project Management Tycoon has been cancelled. And as a result the project itself has been closed for the time being. Our member, titi82000, stated the following before closing down;

Well, for me this project is on pause for a certain period of time. I don't want to write more pdfs and implementations of economical concepts if there are no possibilities to develop it in C++. Till I have the funds, by private means, this project will stay frozen :cry: . However I keep in mind all the economical framework, I must say I am going to prioritize my working life at the moment. There are two possibilities in the future. Either I find the necessary funding to pay freelancer programmers, either the interest arises by miracle from some good coders willing to be part of the project in the following years. The first path will take between 5 and 10 years to find the funds but I will do it for sure, the second is unknow :)
