It is possible within OpenTTD to write Scripts which can be used to automate specific tasks. Unfortunately at present this functionality is a little buggy, but it does work.
Scripts comprise regular console commands, with the commands being run in sequence.
An example script:
echo "Starting server" script openttd.log net_frame_freq = 1 name "My Server"
If we then save the above script as
, it will be run whenever a dedicated server is started, and do the following:
- It will Print "Starting Server" in the console window
- It will begin logging the non-debuging output from the console window to openttd.log
- net_frame_freq will be set to 1
- The server name will be set to "My Server"
If you want scripts to automatically run whenever you start a client, see here. To run scripts manually, simply use the exec command from the Console.
