I just used a TTD and I didn’t even see on legends of hogwarts trace. Not one! Am I doing something wrong or are people having this issue too?
Sorry in advance, I can't get my text to format properly :/
Okay so a few years ago my friend and I were having problems in Open TTD, it seems like after so many years, it doesn't matter if you run cargo, or passengers, but the numbers will completely die off, and places will close and up and disappear.
So I just played so far 10 years in the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe by Microprose. I documented a few things that went on, then I played 10 years in Open TTD. If you've got the time to read through, here are my findings:
I did buses, but I only want to focus on trains and cargo, because that seems to be where the issues are for me and my friend in Open TTD.
So I found a coal mine starting with 135 coal. Ran it up to a power plant, and was making roughly $5,069 or so per trip. I ran 2 trains, each train had 2 coal trucks, so each train could haul 60 coal one way.
1953 train income $74,528 1954 train income $89,950 1955 train income $101,732
At this point, I'm still only running 2 locomotives from a coal mine to a power plant, each train carries 60 tonnes of coal each time.
*1956 train income $97,206 *1957 train income $98,258 *1958 train income $101,410
In 1955, the coal dropped to 120 tonnes, but then whatever the next month was, it went right back up to 135. So for 5 full years in TTD, coal was at 135 tonnes. I had my trains set to full load also. Here are the other documented fluctuations I noticed in TTD:
March 1956 120 tonnes of coal April 1956 135 tonnes of coal December 1957 120 tonnes of coal January 1958 135 tonnes of coal January 1960 coal mine still 135 tonnes.
In that previous post I had written here, someone said non-smooth economy = original TTD economy, so I had that turned off, and I also turned off inflation. Coal production fluctuated wildly in my 10 year game of Open TTD. My income was about $1,000 less in Open TTD, but I think that may have been due to distance from mine to power plant. My train income per year was $40,000 less than what it was in TTD.
So the coal mine stayed stable in Open TTD until August 1955 when the amount of coal waiting suddenly had an extreme drastic drop for no apparent reason, and then it was down to 72 tonnes, then in May 1956 it dropped to 64 tonnes, then it fluctuated up to 72, down to 64, by March of 1957 it was back up to 100 tonnes and by April it was at 135. Then it just kept fluctuating b... keep reading on reddit ➡
Quite the chunk of unnecessary storytelling here just cause I happen to be in a writing mood and went off haha. Skip to TL;DR if you'd like this to be more to the point.
So I'm one of the unfortunate ones who had to break through a serious fear of roller coasters. I was not as lucky as my niece, who recently visited cedar point for the first time with her dad the same day I was there with a cousin, at the age of 6... She came running up to me through crowds of people after a ride on magnum that I calmly warned her may be a little intense and painful to the legs, screaming as she ran in the most proud voice I've ever heard "It didn't hurt my legs Uncle Ian!!!". Blows me away how brave some kids are. Anyway that wasn't me. I carried this fear with me up until my 18th birthday (Almost 20 now). But for one of the more strange and I think rare reasons. Not fear of heights or falling out. Not of going too fast or upside down. Not of the 1 in 1,000,ooo,... chance that a fatal accident occurs. But of the horribly strange way that G forces make my insides feel. Years back, 12 or so year old Ian first went down the hill of blue streak, expecting nothing more than the feeling of, say, riding a four wheeler swiftly down a gentle hill. In a matter of a couple seconds, my face of anticipation and excitement quickly turned to pure terror. Thinking, "I never want to feel that feeling again". For the next 6 years I visited CP like 3 more times, only to muster enough courage for the Iron Dragon at most and to shoot down repeated attempts at stern persuasion and be mildly judged, thus dampening my fun and self confidence.
Anyways, around 8pm, the before my 18th birthday, I explained in conversation to my older brother, 38 at the time and being the greatest father figure in my life, that I really had nothing crazy planned for the day. He says "Why don't you and Ashlyn (my girlfriend of about 2 years at the time) head down to CP for the day and I'll pay for it". A wave of uncertainty passed over me as I'm like "Ahhh I don't know I'm still pretty scared of coasters", though knowing in the back of my head that I deeply desired to overcome this fear. He quickly convinces me to essentially say screw it and just do it. I call my girlfriend immediately and propose the idea to her, and then shamefully and shyly explain that I only want to go if she can graciously accept that I may not want to ride very much. Being the selfless sweetheart that she is, she gladly accepted. Just like... keep reading on reddit ➡
Never used them but I heard they were great in the past but not sure how they stack up today against the top players in terms of inventory, data offerings, attribution, bidding, etc.
They plan on opening tomorrow or Sunday (they were aiming for tomorrow)
Can't get out of a put spread to save my life - not sure if its illiquidity, IV continuing to rise, or both. Im in the 380/375 credit spread, so not ITM but would like to exit.
Has tonic for trace detection been essentially useless for anyone else during this event? I just used two potions and got maybe 7 brilliant foundables, literally all of which were not the brilliant baby niffler I needed for part 3 of the quests?? I don’t remember them being this bad even before they changed how TTD worked. I’ve seen about 20 brilliant foundables total, it’s really frustrating :/

TTD made a great 30% run from a double bottom. Amazing stock that you must check out. Its pulling back and touched the 10 week line Friday, I will be adding more this week.
I make things to do lists (on a blank doc on my phone) but can’t seem to get things done. Important things too. Any tips?
Holy gains!! Fellow Trade Desk investors, are you trimming any shares for profits today? I bought at 195$ and I think it’s time to claim some profit after this crazy run today. Thoughts ?
Thoughts on these guys? They're doing some 3d printing stuff for covid right now including face shields
About 1 month ago I invested in 3 potentially fast growing companies for 2-5 years: Fortinet, Cloudflare and The Trade Desk.
While TTD and NET gained over 20% each, I lost 8% on Fortinet. I have about $700 of each, not much but it’s a decent part of my portfolio.
What do you think and recommend?
Analysts at Jefferies raised estimates this morning on $FB, $GOOG, $SNAP, $TWTR, and $TTD as their checks indicate "healthier-than-expected" ad spend in May/June, ad demand recovering faster than expected, and share shift to digital advertising accelerating. Their checks indicate that digital ad pricing had bottomed in early April (down ~50% from pre-COVID levels) but had since risen ~10-20%. Jefferies also believe the FB boycott is temporary and expect ad spending trends to continue improving in 2H20.
According to a June IAB survey of >100 US brands/agencies, advertisers expect to increase their Q3 ad budgets by 20%+ y/y for CTV, Social, and Search and Q4 ad budgets by 20%+ y/y for Search and 25%+ y/y for CTV and Social. The same survey in March indicated advertisers planned to decrease their digital ad budgets by 20%+ for May/June.
Having said that, Jefferies is not expecting a V-shaped recovery in ad demand, and estimate Q2 average ad revenue -2% y/y (vs Street -5%), followed by rebound in Q3 (+9% vs Street +3%) and Q4 (+18% vs Street +11%).
While COVID has impacted F'20 revenue for the digital advertisers, Jefferies believe the structural shift to digital media (from traditional) should support multiple expansion and upward estimate revisions. They see the potential for double-digit stock returns over the next three years, with potentially 20%+ returns for $SNAP.
Today is a new beginning for all of us!
This is a declaration of war towards TTD.
The people of TTD are suffering without leadership and leadership is nowhere to be found.
It is anarchy force upon them!
But we shall rise up and separate the weak from the strong.
I have given out the order towards LAW soldiers for mobilization.
We will give TTD the option to surrender, if the terms are not accepted we shall take the land by force.
The terms of surrender are the following!
These are the conditions and the conditions are non negotiable!
We are declaring war on TTD because this faction has become inactive and we want the outpost claim.
Waiting on the claims to decay can take who know how long, so we decided to take action ourself.
If anyone from TTD reads this, don't hesitate to contact us.
