This bundle features Transport Tycoon, Sid Meier's Colonization, Sid Meier's Railroad Tycoon Deluxe, and Pirates! Gold.

Get those packages, freight, and goods going to their destination in Transport Tycoon. Create road, rail, air, and sea networks, then build stations, docks, and airports to connect areas in need of transport services. Along with building and maintaining your routes and vehicles, you must carve out the competition, cope with disasters such as tornadoes, earthquakes, and fires, and negotiate terms with town councils. Unlock improved vehicles that are introduced over time, or build your own world using the World Editor tool.

In the world-building tradition of Civilization, Sid Meier's Colonization presents you with the challenge of discovery. You embark on your voyage to a new land as one of four nationalities: English, Dutch, Spanish, or French. Each comes with its own political agenda and special characteristics. Once you find the New World, you'll have to contend with rival factions and local natives as you attempt to establish a colony. Creating productive trade routes, managing resources, ensuring and maintaining colony growth, dealing with political situations, and directing military actions will all be part of your struggle to develop and sustain a winning strategic plan. Use the historically accurate map of the Americas or use the random map generator to create new worlds to explore.

Before beginning Pirates! Gold you can choose to either begin a new game or command a famous expedition. Your main objective is to find fame and fortune while exploring the Spanish Main. Command a fleet of ships, hire sailors, attack enemy ships, invade towns, and purchase treasure maps. Nationalities include English, French, Dutch, and Spanish. Skills available are fencing, navigation, gunnery, medicine, and wit and charm. Advance through the ranks of your home country and possibly others. Side objectives have you searching for four lost family members who provide you with pieces of a map to lost Inca treasures.

Railroad Tycoon Deluxe allows you to build and run your own railroad company complete with 32 types of trains. Test your tycoon skills in six world regions such as the northeastern United States, the western United States, Europe, South America, and Africa. A choice of four levels of difficulty and three reality levels give you the options for how challenging to make the game. As time passes, new train engines are invented, giving you the opportunity to replace your old ones.

For DOS/Windows (via DOSBox) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']

WHAT YOU GET:

This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.

IMAGES:

All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.

COMPATIBILITY:

Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.

PLATFORM:

Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.

MEDIA FORMAT:

Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A SMOOTH PURCHASE:

  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


  • SHIPPING:

    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
