Instead of a table, maybe each industry should have its own page? --Bp 16:35, 3 Feb 2006 (CET)

  • Currently there is no need to make such a pages, which would be almost empty. This table is sufficient for now --MeusH 23:51, 3 Feb 2006 (CET)
Yet I see there is need to have individual pages for Vehicles. I will, quite soon, either refit this page to include Industry images, or do a template system similar to vehicles and have an Image on each page. That may very well work nicely, and illustrate the industries better. Born Acorn 23:50, 9 September 2006 (CEST)

Table

The table on this page is HTML, currently. It should be converted to a Mediwiki table, similar to others. Born Acorn 18:59, 7 February 2007 (CET)

Remodel: - I suggest changing PRI to Primary. Less confusing without abbreviations. Also, neither Factories nor Printing Works are tertiary industries, they are both secondary in real life. Prehaps change to level-2 secondary? Also Banks are technically tertiary industries. I propose change it all to first-level, second-level, third-level. Any ideas? I know the game mentions "Fund Primary industry". JameiLei 20:44, 7 February 2007 (CET)
The reason it says PRI is if it said Primary then TERT would have to say Tertiary, and that would stretch the column too much. The abbreviations should not be confusing as the full words are explained in the intro paragraph. Also, about levels, remember we are talking about OpenTTD in this wiki, not real life. A factory is a tertiary industry because you have to work your cargo over 2 levels (Iron ore into Steel) before taking it to the factory, which makes a total of three levels.

Prospecting

"It is possible for a transport company to fund(build) a new industry. However, you won't get any return on your investment except the added cargo to transport." -Does it mean that prospecting gives some return, or shares? Thanks, MeusH 11:04, 2 August 2007 (CEST)

No, prospecting is exactly the same thing like funding industry, except you cannot choose the location of industry. As far I know OTTD game mechanics, you cannot own shares or own any industry, after all, game is about transporting stuff. But to know how the latest nightlies actually works, people who develop the game should know the answer better than me. Priski 20:35, 2 August 2007 (CEST)
