Dominik - OpenTTD Developer

Real Name: Dominik Scherer

Who am I?

I'm a 23 year old computer science student from Bonn, Germany. I joined the OpenTTD development team in March 2004 as one of the first developers. Since then my main obsession has been bugfixing and enhancing usability. My most popular contributions were probably Higher bridges and Landscaping but I've also brought drag'n'drop functionality to numerous tools, such as bulldozing, station building and tree planting. I have also been providing the Mandrake Linux RPM packages.
