JGR's Patchpack version 0.55.2

This is a collection of patches applied to OpenTTD

OpenTTD is a transport simulation game based upon the popular game Transport Tycoon Deluxe, written by Chris Sawyer. It attempts to mimic the original game as closely as possible while extending it with new features.

OpenTTD is licensed under the GNU General Public License version 2.0, but includes some 3rd party software under different licenses. See the section "Licensing" below for details,

See below for the original OpenTTD readme.

The thread for this patchpack can be found here.

See for the changelog.

See the wiki for guides on how to use some of the included features.

See for instructions on how to install.

(Nearly all of the patches which are listed below have been modified, fixed or extended in some way, and so are not the same as the originals which are linked).

Railways and Trains

  • Drive-through train depots.
  • Template-based train replacement.

  • This is not guaranteed to be bug free
  • Savegames with huge airports are rejected
  • Map sizes greater than 16k x 16k are rejected
  • PAX signals/stations and traffic lights are cleared, leaving ordinary signals/stations/roads
  • Rail ageing/grass on tracks, trip histories, leave order/wait for cargo, auto advertising campaigns, base cost multipliers and other features not in this patch pack are dropped/ignored.
  • SpringPP v2.0.102/103 only:
    • Savegames which have aircraft approaching, landing, taking off or landed at an oil rig are rejected
    • The inflation cost multiplier is adjusted on load

Caveats for loading savegames from Joker's Patch Pack:

  • This is not guaranteed to be bug free
  • Logic signals are cleared, leaving ordinary signals
  • Various vehicle separation settings and partially-automatic modes are not supported.
  • Rail ageing/grass on tracks, trip histories, waiting cargo histories, station cargo punishment and other features not in this patch pack are dropped/ignored.

  • Various vehicle, economy, town and other settings are not supported
  • Link graph data (but not settings) is cleared

A note on branches

Many features have two branches, the feature branches are just the raw features, without any modified savegame code.
There are not generally savegame compatible with anything else, except for loading of trunk savegame versions at or before the point where the branch diverged from trunk.
All other load attempts may result in undefined behaviour.
The feature-sx branches use the savegame framework in the save_ext branch.


Table of contents

1.0) About

OpenTTD is a transport simulation game based upon the popular game Transport Tycoon Deluxe, written by Chris Sawyer. It attempts to mimic the original game as closely as possible while extending it with new features.

OpenTTD is licensed under the GNU General Public License version 2.0, but includes some 3rd party software under different licenses. See the section "Licensing" below for details.

1.1) Downloading OpenTTD

OpenTTD can be downloaded from the official OpenTTD website.

Both 'stable' and 'nightly' versions are available for download:

  • most people should choose the 'stable' version, as this has been more extensively tested
  • the 'nightly' version includes the latest changes and features, but may sometimes be less reliable

OpenTTD is also available for free on Steam,, and the Microsoft Store. On some platforms OpenTTD will be available via your OS package manager or a similar service.

1.2) OpenTTD gameplay manual

OpenTTD has a community-maintained wiki, including a gameplay manual and tips.

1.3) Supported platforms

OpenTTD has been ported to several platforms and operating systems.

The currently supported platforms are:

  • Linux (SDL (OpenGL and non-OpenGL))
  • macOS (universal) (Cocoa)
  • Windows (Win32 GDI / OpenGL)

Other platforms may also work (in particular various BSD systems), but we don't actively test or maintain these.

1.3.1) Legacy support

Platforms, languages and compilers change. We'll keep support going on old platforms as long as someone is interested in supporting them, except where it means the project can't move forward to keep up with language and compiler features.

We guarantee that every revision of OpenTTD will be able to load savegames from every older revision (excepting where the savegame is corrupt). Please report a bug if you find a save that doesn't load.

1.4) Installing and running OpenTTD

OpenTTD is usually straightforward to install, but for more help the wiki includes an installation guide.

OpenTTD needs some additional graphics and sound files to run.

For some platforms these will be downloaded during the installation process if required.

For some platforms, you will need to refer to the installation guide.

1.4.1) Free graphics and sound files

The free data files, split into OpenGFX for graphics, OpenSFX for sounds and OpenMSX for music can be found at:

Please follow the readme of these packages about the installation procedure. The Windows installer can optionally download and install these packages.

1.4.2) Original Transport Tycoon Deluxe graphics and sound files

If you want to play with the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe data files you have to copy the data files from the CD-ROM into the baseset/ directory. It does not matter whether you copy them from the DOS or Windows version of Transport Tycoon Deluxe. The Windows install can optionally copy these files.

You need to copy the following files:

  • trg1r.grf or TRG1.GRF
  • trgcr.grf or TRGC.GRF
  • trghr.grf or TRGH.GRF
  • trgir.grf or TRGI.GRF
  • trgtr.grf or TRGT.GRF

1.4.3) Original Transport Tycoon Deluxe music

If you want the Transport Tycoon Deluxe music, copy the appropriate files from the original game into the baseset folder.

  • TTD for Windows: All files in the gm/ folder ( up to
  • TTD for DOS: The GM.CAT file
  • Transport Tycoon Original: The GM.CAT file, but rename it to GM-TTO.CAT

1.5) Add-on content / mods

OpenTTD features multiple types of add-on content, which modify gameplay in different ways.

Most types of add-on content can be downloaded within OpenTTD via the 'Check Online Content' button in the main menu.

Add-on content can also be installed manually, but that's more complicated; the OpenTTD wiki may offer help with that, or the OpenTTD directory structure guide.

1.6) OpenTTD directories

OpenTTD uses its own directory structure to store game data, add-on content etc.

For more information, see the directory structure guide.

1.7) Compiling OpenTTD

If you want to compile OpenTTD from source, instructions can be found in

2.0) Contact and Community

'Official' channels

'Unofficial' channels

2.1) Contributing to OpenTTD

We welcome contributors to OpenTTD. More information for contributors can be found in

2.2) Reporting bugs

Good bug reports are very helpful. We have a guide to reporting bugs to help with this.

Desyncs in multiplayer are complex to debug and report (some software development skils are required). Instructions can be found in debugging and reporting desyncs.

2.3) Translating

OpenTTD is translated into many languages. Translations are added and updated via the online translation tool.

3.0) Licensing
