How to install OpenTTD 1.7.1 Transport Tycoon Deluxe game on Ubuntu 17.04

    OpenTTD 1.7.1 is an open source simulation game based upon the popular Microprose game "Transport Tycoon Deluxe", written by Chris Sawyer. It attempts to mimic the original game as closely as possible while extending it with new features.

OpenTTD 1.7.1  changelog
  • Fix: Add missing game script event for ships arriving at a station.
  • Fix: StringID truncation to 16 bits broke string remapping test.
  • Fix: Infinite loop in pathfinder when checking safe waiting position from a waypoint.
  • Fix: [YAPF] Consider depot as destination before reversing path and applying penalty.
  • Fix: Don't consider locks or ship depots as clear water when placing industries.
  • Fix: Small news window's fake caption was not sized to fit its text.
  • Fix: Black remap did nothing in 8bpp-simple blitter.
  • Fix: Misaligned resize icon due to widget bounds being inclusive.
  • Fix: Update viewport sign dimensions when changing GUI zoom level.
  • Fix: Vehicle viewport is not user scrollable so flag window as such.
  • Fix: Allow dropdown to be drawn above origin widget even with scrollbar.
  • Fix: 32bpp-anim blitters assumed that pitch and width of the screen were equal.
  • Fix: Chat text background overflowed due to missing padding.
  • Fix: Failed to load lzo compressed savegames sometimes.
  • Fix: [Win32] Mark OpenTTD as DPI-aware to avoid OS window scaling that breaks mouse input.
  • Fix: [NewGRF] Get vehicle load amount after executing new cargo trigger.
  • Fix: AI configuration changed incorrect parameter when some parameters are hidden.
