How to Play the Game
At the beginning of the game, Lynn has a small portion of a land but as the play levels up she unlocks new areas and expands her lands. Each area has several places for players to build things, such as mines, lodges, and other buildings. After building or renovating these locations, they’ll start producing resources like coal, wood, and iron. These resources provide the necessary ingredients to build new structures. In order to harvest the above-mentioned resources, you’ll need trains (and later steamboats and airships). The game offers several trains to buy, each based on real-life classical trains. The trains must also be equipped with carriages to hold passengers or goods. Different carriages are suitable for different resources.
Note: If you don’t equip the right carriage for a run, the run will take longer or bring back less of the resource.
As the games progresses, you explore paths to many cities. These cities are much smaller than the genre norm, with only around 5-7 things to build in each one. One of those, the factory, produces steel. Steel constantly runs dry, so putting the factory to work is really important. Warehouses also provide a necessary storage location for resources.
Transport Empire provides also random events and quests which are designated by exclamation marks on the map. These add a little to the story, but mainly keep the players busy. If you don’t select one quickly enough, it disappears. You’ll have to complete specific types of contracts at different locations, harvest a certain resource, clear trees from a track, help a traveler in need, or even just take advantage of a fishing opportunity. Accepting a random event always costs either silver or a resource, but it usually pays off with something valuable.
The game has primary and premium currencies. The primary currency is silver and the premium currency is gold. You’ll constantly earn silver from implementing different tasks, completing quests and collecting it from buildings. Every job you take costs some silver which you spend on buying carriages, and other important items.
