Mini Metro Subway Tycoonby ripatti - 48 Hour Compo Entry
You are a mayor of a small city. There are living exactly 1000 people.
Every day all of them travel to thier work and back to home.
It causes huge traffic jams on roads. And it's a major trouble of the city.
Your goal is to construct metro subway system to decrease average load of roads.
to play run "bin/metro.exe"
HOW TO PLAY <= read carefully before play!
The game field is divided into squares, every of them may contain some buildings
of two tipes: residential areas and workplaces (or maybe some mix of them).
You can see types of buildings moving mouse over such squares.
Also you can see places of residential area and workplaces in "Residential Area"
and "Workplaces" Tabs. Residential buildings are homes of people and workplaces
are places where people do thier job. Every of 1000 people have home
in some residential building and a job in some workplace.
Between some squares there are roads. People use roads to travel to work and back.
Every of people choses quickest route. From time to time every people reviews
his route and if he finds more quick one, he changes it.
A lot of routes on same road slow down throughput of the road.
You can see loading of roads in "Traffic Jams" Tab.
That's why people sometimes change routes travelling along less loaded routes.
To unload traffic jams of roads you have to build your own metro subway.
Intersections of roads are junctions. They are only places where you can build
metro stations. You cannot build stations in the forest or on the coast of the river.
You can see type of junction moving mouse over it.
To start building your metro click on any junction to build your very first station.
Now you have the following tools to build metro lines:
1. Click on station to create a line. Chose type of line ("/" or "\").
2. Click on the end of any line to extend it. Chose new place of line end.
On every step you can extend the line only if bend will be no more than 45 degree.
Lines can intersect only by diagonal segments (you will get "X").
3. Click on diagonal segment of line to build new station. Click again to confirm.
Note: you can build new stations ONLY on DIAGONAL segments of line. Be careful!
Also you can build station only if on the sufrace there is road junction.
Every station costs $1000 and every line segment costs $100.
If you will spent all your money, you will get GAME OVER.
Your goal is to reach average Load of roads no more than 12.
At the beginning this value is about 20.

POST COMPO VERSION <== try it if you liked compo version
- Added beautiful music created by my friend Zuick.
- Added "Train Occupance Rate" Tab
Now you can see load of your metro subway lines.
- Changed economic model
Station costs $1000 and spends $40 per second if in use.
Line segment costs $100 and spends $8 per second in use.
Station/segment is in use if at least one route goes through it.
Every route going throuth metro system gives you $3 per second.
All info about your economic state you can see in the right panel:
Income = 3*routes_using_metro
Expense = 40*stations_in_use + 8*segments_in_use
Cashflow = Income - Expense
Changed initial amount of money to $10000.
Now you'll get GAME OVER if your balance will be -$1000.
- Added Happiness parameter
Every of people calculates comfortable travel time between home and work.
This value depends linearly on distance between home and work.
If real travel time actually no more than this time, this man is happy.
Happiness parameter shows how many people are happy over all of them.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline.

For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
