I did it!
Arguably not that impressive though. I played specifically to get 1 bil a year, not to reach 15 bil CV, and I ended up playing in ways that are clearly suboptimal for regular K1 play (Note the late year and relatively low bank balance, 50 years in and I'm not even 50% towards the goal). Nevertheless, it was a fun challenge, though I don't think I'm a speedy enough builder to do it the normal way.

In case anyone is curious what I did, I started with coal, just enough so I could continually build without having to wait for cash. Then I built Iron Ore, then I built more Iron Ore, then I did oil, but I only shipped the oil to a local refinery so that the oil rigs could start to increase their production, didn't transfer onto trains. Then I did more Iron ore, and some more Iron ore. Once the steel mill was reliably producing 5-10 thousand tons a month, I started working on infrastructure for steel, oil transfers and goods. Once I had all that in place, I unleashed about 160-ish Steel, oil and goods trains simultaneously and watched my income skyrocket.

...And here's a map as well. End of game I was making about 1.15 Bil a year, with 270 trains, 40 ships, 11 RV's and 0 planes. After I hit 1 bil a year, I didn't build anything new, just added extra trains here and there when they seemed to be needed. Took 57 years in the end, so not a particularly fast game. On a semi-related note, my fastest game on K1 to date is still one where I went to sleep halfway through, will have to do something about that sometime.

I guess the new challenge is 1.5bil? I can somewhat reliable make 1.2b games now. And yeah, the secret is just to build like a maniac i guess. I tried Inscius' setup once but i dont feel it. I like farms, i feel like they grow much faster than other industries.

Fastest game too, 30 years flat. 6 hours 55 minut =)
