Transport Tycoon API

Root API URI is the servers address

API is available per server instance

API Keys

TL;DR: Create a new key using /api key new

Add charges using /api key refill (adds 1000 charges for $1M)

The API requires an API Key to access most features.

Each key has a limited amount of API calls (also called charges), which is consumed every time an API call is made using the key.

Additional charges can be purchased in-game using the /api key refill command at the cost of $1000 (in-game money) per charge.

Any user can generate an API key, this key is said users private key.

To generate a key, use the /api key new command in-game.

If you already have a key generated, the old one will be deleted and a new one takes its place.

When you generate a key for the first time, it will come with some free charges allowing you to test the API for free.

The API Key can be copied using the /api key copy command. (This will show your key on screen!)

For developers

The API Key must be placed as an `X-Tycoon-Key` header.
