Webinar: Introducing OpenTD

Tuesday May 21, 2019, 2pm MT (1pm PT, 4pm ET)

If you are an advanced user with programming skills, or a third-party application developer, you'll want to learn about OpenTD. OpenTD allows you to automate many of the tasks currently performed interactively using Thermal Desktop's Graphical User Interface (GUI). OpenTD gives you the tools to programmatically create, query, edit, delete, and run models. You can use any .NET language to interact with OpenTD (C#, VB .NET, F#, etc.) or any system that can load .NET assemblies such as Matlab or Python.
