Yes, the buttons are too small, the interface is designed for a mouse and it's incredibly complex...

Still, it's Transport Tycoon on the iPad!
Well... I am afraid that this is going to be a Transport to my Backup drive, and gets deleted from my Ipad2.
At least.. I have a copy

Thanks for your very useful reply, I'll provide a sync/backup asap. I loved this game so much in my past times on my PC. I perfectly understand it's probably very near to be removed due to clear copyright infringement, and I never jailbreaked my ipads... Bought this just because that seems a very cool chance for me to have this good porting for an ipad.

I've downloaded almost every extras which captured my interest, though seems there's no way to fix that very bad palette setup (brown water, blue grass LOL!). If somebody has suggestions about that, thanks in advance!

A fine tip stylus is of great value with this game. Either that, or toothpick like fingers.

Looking for a cool sig.

Where do you get a capacitive stylus with a fine tip? All I can find are those ones with the rounded, rubbery ends.

The amount of time i STILL spend with OpenTTD on my mac.. wish someone would release a decently optimised for fingers port.

Dammit Chris Sawyer, whatever you are doing these days. Just design us a TTD for iOS!

Adonit makes fine point stylus. The Adonit Jot Classic is $20 on Amazon. I don't have any experience with it personally, but Amazon reviews gives it high marks.

Chris Sawyer is sitting in a dark room somewhere chain-smoking cigarettes while he mutters about how much he hates Apple.

He isn't the only one, though. Here's my list of old DOS games that would make MILLIONS on the iPad if the developers ever got off the dime or over their platform partisanship:

1. Rollercoaster Tycoon
2. Transport Tycoon
3. Railroad Tycoon
4. Masters of Orion
5. Masters of Magic
6. Heroes of Might and Magic III
7. M.U.L.E.

This isn't entirely true. You can still redownload from the "purchased apps" section in iTunes, but eventually apps that are removed do disappear forever after a few months.

This confuses me...

I still have a large number of apps in my iTunes library that have been pulled, such as the DOS app and the tethering flashlight app. As far as I know, Apple doesn't have a way of reaching into my computer and deleting an app remotely...

Perhaps you're thinking about Apple's Cloud backup of purchased apps.
