Performance

There have been some tests on the forums comparing the performance of the AIs. These threads include graphs and other screenshots, savegames are available for download.

AI testing threads on the forums: (with the most recent being on top of the list)

There has also been a test on the CPU usage of particular AIs in May 2010:

Other AIs

  • Idle - An AI that does nothing, keeping minimal permissible balance. Idle can be used for running multiple companies in a singleplayer game, using the company switching cheat.
  • IdleMore - It is a fork of Idle which does even less work. Bank balance management is configurable, and it doesn't rename its company upon loading a savegame.
  • StreetTrafic1 - It is a fork of TownCars, which runs cars in towns for eye-candy. It needs a car NewGRF to be present (like Generic Cars).
  • TownCars - An AI which runs cars in towns for eye-candy. It needs a car NewGRF to be present (like Generic Cars).
  • TutorialAI - An AI which acts as an in-game tutorial, introducing new players into playing OpenTTD. It is currently under development.
  • WmDOT - An AI which connects towns with roads, without running any vehicles on them. WmDOT can be used to have pre-built road networks between towns.
