Overview - Multi-001 Stanbridge Transit
Stanbridge was my first multiplayer OpenTTD map and was also the first map where I exclusively used mail. From the get-go, the focus of this map was on segregated lines for easy upgrading, forming a coherent network. Intercity terminals were pre-provisioned from the start, and the second region we expanded to was explicitly built out as a soviet triangle (though infill stations and extensions changed this topography.
Map-wise, the fact that this was an ongoing multiplayer map meant that map prototyping has to be fast. As a result, each mode collapsed down to a single color, depending on station labels to identify which service stopped at a given location. As with other recent maps, feeder routes were excluded from the map.
