00:04:23  <Nite> idea - teh different "slots" i was about could exist via a building that you attach to a station (a goods depot or pax hall)
00:04:49  <Nite> you then cpould click that building to use this section of the station
00:05:23  <Nite> (NO new gui wondow!)
00:06:12  <Nite> i even didnt understan why autoreplace needed an extra window

00:08:14  <eekee> yeah I had replace issues earlier. I see now how powerful the replace system is, but it's a bit of a pain having to go via the one main vehicles list instead of, say, a station's train list.
00:08:55  <eekee> also it's got a bug: the waggon removal option is global, so if you run 2 replacements at the same time, you can't have one with waggon removal and one without
00:09:44  <Nite> well this dont looks like bug to me
00:11:11  <Nite> i almost never use the groups, sorting or autogrouping by shared orders would have done it for me
00:11:49  <Nite> (i know you can add all trains sharing to a group a train is alredy in)
00:12:56  <Nite> ottd is at a stage hardly to learn it from scratch if not grown with it.
00:13:11  <eekee> yeah :/
00:13:33  <eekee> you have to muck about finding one train of the ones you wantin the big list. Pointless
00:14:01  <SmatZ> well, I agree
00:14:46  <SmatZ> autogrouping, and preferably with naming groups by destinations, would be useful
00:14:51  *** lobster_MB [~michielbr@86.89.201.189] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:15:39  <Nite> well its not to hard to find a train (they have names/numbers if u noticed ;-P)
00:16:12  <Nite> but its still lot of click drag click - not really bad and not really good for me.
00:16:30  <eekee> oh it is. Not everyone can simply look at a list and pick out the entry they want
00:18:43  <Nite> ok autogroup by shared would be just fine
00:19:26  <Nite> guess i have to play a round of TTO then i would quickly stop to complain ;-)
00:20:22  <SmatZ> at least
00:20:34  <SmatZ> there is a function to add all shared vehicles to the same group
00:20:37  <SmatZ> so you create grou
00:20:38  <SmatZ> p
00:20:42  <SmatZ> add 1 vehicle to int
00:20:44  <SmatZ> it
00:20:50  <SmatZ> and then add all shared vehicles
00:20:54  <eekee> SmatZ: WE KNOW
00:21:08  <SmatZ> eekee: calm down
00:21:24  <Nite> true (i mentioned that above)
00:21:39  <SmatZ> ok sorry :-P
00:21:56  <eekee> SmatZ: just because all those steps are easy for you doesn't mean they are easy for everyone. ;)
00:21:59  <Nite> what we think about is to show trains grouped by shared orders (routes) withou tdoing anything.
00:22:20  <Nite> well erm - klicking a one button of course.
00:22:26  <SmatZ> eekee: I don't say they are easy, but it is easier than manually moving 50 vehicles from one group to another :)
00:23:30  <SmatZ> I have done a simple patch for that... but sure there is one at tt-forums, that is far advanced
00:23:32  <SmatZ> isn't it?
00:23:49  <Nite> well there is "All trains" "Ungrouped trains" and there simply has to be a "grouped by shared orders" button in future
00:24:19  <eekee> why can't you just access vehicle replace from a station or shared order list?
00:24:39  <Nite> sure ok there are patches in ottd like sand on the beach you are right ...
00:24:57  <ccfreak2k> In the SVN builds, does "Go non-stop to <station> (full load any cargo)" mean that it will speed through any stations it goes through?
00:25:32  <Nite> no
00:25:50  <ccfreak2k> This new orders GUI is confusing.
00:26:11  <Nite> if "ttdpatch compatible" is ON trains are in nonstop automatically ...
00:26:39  <Nite> sry but the orders gui looks like tto
00:26:50  <Nite> you mean timetables?
00:26:58  <ccfreak2k> I mean orders GUI.
00:27:17  <Nite> yeah mean timetables??
00:27:23  <SmatZ> eekee: you would have to remember replace rules for each station / depot / shared orders group
00:27:26  <Nite> yeah the orders gui looks like tto
00:27:33  <ccfreak2k> TTO is?
00:27:41  <Nite> tt original
00:27:45  <ccfreak2k> O.
00:27:51  <ccfreak2k> I've uh
00:27:56  <ccfreak2k> never actually played the original.
00:27:58  <ccfreak2k> Or Deluxe.
00:28:09  <Pikka> no delete key in original D:
00:28:16  <SmatZ> [02:25:37] <ccfreak2k> In the SVN builds, does "Go non-stop to <station> (full load any cargo)" mean that it will speed through any stations it goes through? <== yes I would say
00:28:22  <SmatZ> it won't stop at intermediate stations
00:28:27  <Pikka> you have to close every window one at a time clicking on the x's :P
00:28:35  <SmatZ> hehe @ Pikka :)
00:28:46  <ccfreak2k> SmatZ, aha.
00:28:49  <SmatZ> difference between TTD and TTO? the DEL key! ;-)
00:29:14  <SmatZ> ccfreak2k: "Go via" won't stop at destination
00:29:16  <ccfreak2k> I thought the difference is 11.
00:29:22  <SmatZ> yeah 11
00:29:40  <ccfreak2k> Because O - D = 11. :)
00:29:46  <SmatZ> 8-)
00:29:50  <SmatZ> you are nerd, nice
00:29:58  <Nite> ahhh ttd means (transport tycoon deletekey)
00:30:22  <SmatZ> :)
00:31:02  <Nite> i never played the "original deluxe" just the "original original"

01:20:12  <Belugas> i don't know about TTO.  But it os present in TTD.  I would assume it was there too
01:20:39  <glx> in TTD it's a real full load
01:21:26  <Nite> ok and in tto i ossume it was one cargo full
01:21:37  <glx> dunno
01:22:15  <glx> I guess if it has full load it's a real one too
01:23:17  <Nite> im waiting  for the 1/2 and quarter load in ottd trunk ;) as well as selecting real or unreal full load as an order
01:23:33  <SmatZ> I think Full Load was the same in TTD and TTO, that is Full Load All
01:24:08  <Nite> i guess it was full load one
01:24:16  <Nite> just a guess ...
01:24:19  <SmatZ> why?

05:23:01  <Eddi|zuHause2> <Pikka> you have to close every window one at a time clicking on the x's :P <- i was under the impression in TT you could click on the main toolbar (where the money is displayed) to close all windows
05:23:07  <Eddi|zuHause2> but that's a long time ago...
05:24:25  <ccfreak2k> But it's soooo much effort to drag the cursor all the way over to the toolbar.
05:24:54  <Eddi|zuHause2> the toolbar was organised differently in TT ;)
05:25:12  <ccfreak2k> And screens were so much smaller, too.
05:26:06  <Eddi|zuHause2> in TTD they moved the money out of the main toolbar, and added the status bar at the bottom

12:30:51  <Mchl> hello
12:30:56  <TiberiusTeng> now I'm thinking to challenge programmable signals ...
12:33:28  <Noldo> :)
12:34:20  <Noldo> What are programmable signals for?
12:35:41  <TiberiusTeng> check the thread in development forum :)
12:35:59  <TiberiusTeng> http://www.openttdcoop.org/wiki/Priorities
12:36:11  <TiberiusTeng> I just don't want to carve these kind of things everytime ...
12:40:17  <Noldo> I'm a bit worried about making signals have features like: This tile can be only passed by vehicles with property X

12:41:00  <TiberiusTeng> I don't want to do it this way actually ...
12:41:17  <TiberiusTeng> It'll be better like, say, this signal will be red if signal X is red
12:41:43  <TiberiusTeng> and leave pathfinders untouched
12:41:51  <Noldo> yes that sounds more like something a signal would do
12:42:24  <TiberiusTeng> I don't feel comfortable with penality-based flow control ... since they are relative, not 'absolute'
12:42:43  *** yorick [~chatzilla@82-171-194-232.ip.telfort.nl] has joined #openttd
12:43:03  <TiberiusTeng> some trains would flow into unwanted regions, if the network is really crowded or you missed something while planning
12:43:26  <Noldo> pathfinding should be more higher level
12:43:42  <Noldo> maybe a separate local one for pbs
12:43:59  <TiberiusTeng> but I do like permissive speed signals ... those slowing yellow signals for example :p
12:44:56  <TiberiusTeng> PBS is wonderful but not stable enough IMO ...
12:45:36  <Noldo> priorities is really something that needs more elegant solution than the current one

12:53:44  <Sacro> land ho?
12:53:54  <peter1138> westward ho!
12:54:33  <TiberiusTeng> Yapf is fascinating ... I can't find the way it reads railway signals ...
12:54:45  <Sacro> TiberiusTeng: i don't think it does
12:55:04  <Sacro> see what happens in rail_cmd.cpp
12:55:09  <TiberiusTeng> it relies feedback by train?
12:55:14  <TiberiusTeng> oh yes, thank you
12:56:22  <TiberiusTeng> gotcha ...
13:00:20  <Belugas> mmh?
13:01:11  <TiberiusTeng> so ... are there anybody already doing this? programmable signals?
13:01:45  <Noldo> TiberiusTeng: I have a feeling I've seen an implementation somewhere
13:02:50  <TiberiusTeng> hmm ...
13:03:34  <TiberiusTeng> actually I do want to 'script' signals myself ...... not using some weird GUI and counter-intuitive boolean expression trees ... :p
13:04:21  <Belugas> as far as i know, there is nobody who currently is working on it
13:05:33  <Belugas> and i wonder, how is it really interesting?
13:06:01  <Belugas> what is it that makes you go in that direction, apart "it's in Patch"
13:06:16  <Belugas> even if i know you don't want the same approach but still...
13:06:27  <yorick> you can filter trains by speed, cargo
13:06:41  <yorick> lenght
13:06:49  <yorick> but that are the only advantages
13:06:55  <TiberiusTeng> it could make openttdcoop load balancer much more cleaner ... perhaps as one or two signals only
13:07:11  <yorick> so could pbs
13:07:23  <TiberiusTeng> without those 'signal-propagating' tracks
13:07:47  <TiberiusTeng> I think PBS can't be used to implement load balancers ...
13:08:06  <planetmaker> ^^ difficult, I'd say
13:08:12  <TiberiusTeng> i.e. break a train on the sideline to wait until mainline traffic passed
13:08:19  <planetmaker> maybe we miss experience, though :). And hello TiberiusTeng :)
13:08:44  <TiberiusTeng> it's not realistic! (well, servicing a factory with 1000 trains isn't realistic ...)
13:09:23  <TiberiusTeng> perhaps it can be simplified to 'linking two distant (non-adjacent) signals'
13:09:32  <planetmaker> a train waiting on a SL for ML traffic to pass is IMO realistic.
13:09:47  <planetmaker> Just consider a coal train having the ICE pass by and not slowing it down.
13:09:57  <TiberiusTeng> I mean 'using tracks to propagate occupation info' part :p
13:10:09  <planetmaker> he. Yeah, full ACK :)
13:11:08  <Noldo> well, I still think signals should be on tile edges instead of tiles
13:11:32  <TiberiusTeng> but I think it's better to come up a feasible signaling schematic, before trying to implement it ...
13:11:36  <planetmaker> Noldo: too big a change.
13:11:54  <TiberiusTeng> it's kind of historic relics :p
13:12:25  <planetmaker> needs reworking of map array is what my guts feeling tells me. A not-so nice one
13:13:17  <TiberiusTeng> we need a new GUI for 'programming' the signals; but the one/the logic used by TTDP is far too complex IMO, and its functions are partially overlapped with which OTTD waypoints provide ...
13:13:51  <planetmaker> Putting the logic in the signals is more reasonable, though IMO.
13:14:15  <planetmaker> keeping waypoints as just that: waypoints to re-route certain trains over certain tracks
13:14:35  <TiberiusTeng> yep. but 'what' logic ? only depends on some distant signals, or fully supporting boolean expression, even scripting ?
13:15:09  <yorick> I'd say something like the conditional orders
13:15:13  <planetmaker> TiberiusTeng: even now they do have a logic like "pass" "not pass", "not pass, if following are all red", etc
13:15:27  <planetmaker> I meant logic in a rather general sense
13:15:32  <TiberiusTeng> oh yeah, presignals.
13:15:54  <planetmaker> logic could also be "red for trains slower than 100kph"
13:16:04  <Noldo> no!
13:16:18  <Noldo> that's not signaling
13:16:22  <yorick> yes it is
13:16:31  <yorick> because the pathfinder would avoid it
13:16:37  <yorick> UNLESS it has no other choice
13:16:44  <yorick> means that the signals could jam
13:16:46  <TiberiusTeng> ... and stuck there. ouch
13:17:27  <TiberiusTeng> that's where permissive/absolute signal differs
13:17:57  <TiberiusTeng> I don't think making speed-limiting signals absolute would be a good idea in OTTD ...
13:18:33  <Noldo> signal has to allow every train pass, the question it should answer is 'when'
13:18:34  <yorick> yes, we should revive the yellow signals for permissive red
13:18:50  <TiberiusTeng> yorick++
13:19:11  <Noldo> and yes maybe something like how fast
13:19:24  <yorick> :)
13:20:03  <TiberiusTeng> merely providing signal linking would be a huge improvement, I think ...
13:20:33  <TiberiusTeng> basically doing what openttdcoop does, in a way that don't occupy map tiles
13:21:03  <TiberiusTeng> http://www.openttdcoop.org/wiki/Image:Priority4.png
13:21:10  <TiberiusTeng> link A to F, G, H, I, for example
13:21:28  <TiberiusTeng> if any one of F, G, H, I is red, A will be red
13:22:42  <planetmaker> TiberiusTeng: I'm sure if you open that box of the pandora, other signal programming features will come, too - though maybe later
13:22:49  <planetmaker> despite that, it's a nice feature!
13:22:53  <Sacro> i want yellow signals
13:23:15  <TiberiusTeng> planetmaker, that's why I think it's better to plan ahead before coding :p
13:23:30  <planetmaker> TiberiusTeng: I won't contradict there.
13:23:52  <TiberiusTeng> a listbox that shows all linked signals, with a 'X' to delete either one, clicking the signal will highlight it with white/flashing red cursor, etc ...
13:23:59  <planetmaker> And a good planing will give you ground for many ways to programme signals. Doesn't mean that all are implemented
13:24:50  <TiberiusTeng> I think it's better to derive the feature set we need, by some use-cases ...
13:24:57  <planetmaker> Sacro: depends upon what "yellow signal" means
13:25:17  <Sacro> planetmaker: it isn't red
13:25:19  <Sacro> or green

13:25:32  <TiberiusTeng> the yellow signal itself looks cool, but the problem is how to use it ;)
13:25:48  <TiberiusTeng> actually I like the 'permissive red' idea
13:25:56  <planetmaker> Well. I certainly would have a need for signals with speed or cargo-type restrictions...
13:26:41  <TiberiusTeng> but I think I'll need to digest YAPP and original signaling code first ...
13:28:06  <planetmaker> hm... yapp could / should be quite independent of signal logic in whatever sense.

13:32:12  <yorick> also got the dragdrop?
13:32:13  <Eddi|zuHause> <TiberiusTeng> the yellow signal itself looks cool, but the problem is how to use it ;) <- in germany, "presignal" means it can be green/green (= next "mainsignal" is green),  green/yellow (= next mainsignal is green, but slower speed limit) or yellow/yellow (= next mainsignal is red, start stopping)
13:32:19  <yorick> Roest was working on that
13:32:24  <Eddi|zuHause> presignals are always 1km before the main signal
13:32:56  <TiberiusTeng> dragdrop's used to rearrange newgrf orders for now
13:33:12  <TiberiusTeng> adding/removing with double-clicking is faster

16:28:16  <Belugas> fjb, it depends what you want to achieve
16:28:38  <Belugas> the close the airport is frm the town center, the more noise the town will perceive
16:28:57  *** Doorslammer is now known as Doorslammer|BRSet
16:29:11  <Belugas> from 0 to 8 tiles away (with regard of the closest tile from town center), the ful amount of the airport noise is used

16:29:33  <fjb> How do I calculate how far away from the town I have to place the airport.
16:29:46  <Belugas> it depends
16:30:00  <Belugas> define youre definition of "how far awy"
16:30:10  <Belugas> waht dos it means for you?
16:30:27  <fjb> How many tiles away.?
16:30:50  <Belugas> you can put the airport next to the town center if you will
16:30:55  <Belugas> or even 100 tiles away
16:31:11  <Belugas> what do you want to ACHIEVE
16:31:55  <fjb> Say the town allow a noise level of 13, but I want to build an airport which generates a noise level of 17. Where di I have to place it?
16:32:25  <Belugas> what is your town's setting for tolerance?
16:32:28  <Doorslammer|BRSet> Thanks, BTW
16:32:44  <fjb> Ofcouse I want to build it as near to the center of the town as possible.
16:33:56  <fjb> Is there a setting for tolerance? Or is the the general tolerance for building stations?
16:34:05  <Belugas> town_council_tolerance
16:34:35  <Belugas> ingame, it's on the difficulty level, last entry
16:34:59  <fjb> Ok, I will look at it in the console.
16:35:54  <Belugas> so, you need a noise reduction of 4
16:36:01  <Belugas> the formula is:
16:36:15  <fjb> Oh, how do I open the ingame console? I was the key above the tab key. But that doesn't work right now.
16:37:02  <fjb> The initial configfile hat a tolarance of 1, should be the medium setting.

16:38:57  <Belugas> tis gives you a factor
16:39:08  <Belugas> ho... simpler...
16:39:13  <Belugas> 	/* The steps for measuring noise reduction are based on the "magical" (and arbitrary) 8 base distance
16:39:14  <Belugas> 	 * adding the town_council_tolerance 4 times, as a way to graduate, depending of the tolerance.

16:39:14  <Belugas> 	 * an actual decrease can be granted */
16:39:22  <Belugas> 	/* now, we want to have the distance segmented using the distance judged bareable by town
16:39:22  <Belugas> 	 * This will give us the coefficient of reduction the distance provides. */
16:39:28  <Belugas> 	/* If the noise reduction equals the airport noise itself, don't give it for free.
16:39:29  <Belugas> 	 * Otherwise, simply reduce the airport's level. */
16:39:32  <Belugas> there
16:39:41  <Belugas> the comments are saying every thing you need
16:41:12  <fjb> Hm, tolerace is 1. So 8 + 4 * 1 = 12.
16:44:04  <fjb> My airport makes 4 for noise than the town tolerates (town: 13, airport: 17). Does that get included into the calculation somewhere? Or is there no difference if the airport make one level too much noise or of makes 4 level or even 20 level too much noise?
16:45:48  <Belugas> not really.  what is important is the distance from town center.  It gets divided by the amount you found ealier (12)
16:45:54  <Belugas> so each 12 tiles,
16:46:05  <Belugas> you will get one noise level reduction
16:46:57  <Belugas> so to answer your quwesiton with words, you will nned 48 tiles ( 12 * 4) to achieve tp place your 17 noise airport when the town ony allows for 13
16:47:19  <fjb> Ah, thak you. So to get the 4 needed level I have to build the airport 48 tiles away from the center of the town.
16:47:29  <Belugas> yes.

16:52:08  <Belugas> i do too
16:52:25  <Belugas> i'm just happy that it's finaly in trunk...
16:54:54  <fjb> Now we need kind of some passenger destinations thing. Or the possibility to transport cargos bidirectional. My planned international airport will have to be far away for any house.
16:55:18  <fjb> from
16:57:06  <Belugas> funny how frequently "we need" is used when talking about one person's desires ;)
16:57:39  <Belugas> [12:45] <fjb> Nearest edge of the airport counts? And the center of the town is the tile with the town name? And the distance is the usual manhattan distance?  <-- yes to all these questions
16:58:52  <fjb> I think I'm not the only one who thinks that transporting cargos in both directions without picking up the just delivered cargos would be desirable.
17:03:57  <fjb> With that feature it would be possible to build an airport out of town where no houses are, the feed it with a railway, bus or tram line and take the arrived passengers to the town using that same line.
17:08:41  <TiberiusTeng> I think I'll fix NewGRF window first, then actually start researching distant signal linking.
17:09:16  <TiberiusTeng> since waypoints can already do many things that route restrictions / programmable signals in TTDP ...
17:14:09  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: first step: add a "destination station" entry to the cargo packet
17:15:59  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: fill that with random values, do not use the value for anything important, and check if it doesn't desync
17:16:27  <fjb> I don't know if that is the right step. Do we really need destinations for every cargo? And how do you set that destination? Wouln't it be enough to prevent cargo packets from getting back to the station they just came from?
17:16:54  <Eddi|zuHause> it's the first step: add the POSSIBILITY to have destinations
17:17:05  <Eddi|zuHause> if you use them for every cargo is a completely different question
17:17:16  <Eddi|zuHause> *whether
17:18:13  <Eddi|zuHause> and yes, depending on difficulty options, potentially every cargo should have a destination
17:18:51  <fjb> I tried the last passenger destinations patch. it is really hard to get started with a passenger only network with that patch enabled. You simply have not network to reach every possible destination at the beginning of the game.
17:19:12  <Eddi|zuHause> that's a balance issue
17:19:26  <Eddi|zuHause> push that very far back the queue of features ;)
17:20:06  <Eddi|zuHause> it MUST NOT desync, that's the main problem of the last patch
17:20:22  <fjb> Just adding features with a goal in mind doesn't look like the way to go.
17:20:51  <Eddi|zuHause> it's called "step", not "just randomly add a feature"
17:20:56  <Belugas> yeah
17:21:08  <Belugas> i agree with Eddi|zuHause
17:22:51  <fjb> Did the desyncs come from the destination or from finding the routes?
17:23:31  <Eddi|zuHause> the desyncs came from not properly storing the information in the savegame

17:27:13  <Eddi|zuHause> what survey tells you that it would not be used?

17:28:07  <Wolf01> forcing users is not the right way to do a thing, an option is really better, also if doing so the feature will be used only by some people
17:28:41  <Wolf01> but at least you satisfied both who wanted the feature and who don't want it
17:29:09  <fjb> Wolf01: Ofcourse it would have to be an option. But even then you get some overhead in the code when the feature is disabled.

17:30:57  <fjb> ECS is a bit hard to handle. I don't know if that would be easier with the destination feature.

17:33:04  <Belugas> LAZINESS!!!
17:33:06  <Belugas> prrrrrt
17:33:42  <Eddi|zuHause> there's a difference between "laziness" and "extensive micromanagement"
17:33:46  <Wolf01> like the daylength, if you set it to 1, the game behave in the same way, if you set it > 1 you open the pandora's box
17:35:33  <Eddi|zuHause> Belugas: be glad i didn't use the r-word ;)
17:36:40  <Eddi|zuHause> businesses plan their transports based on supply and demand, and THEN ask the transport company to transport it
17:36:58  <Wolf01> and I really know it well, I'm writing a software with a lot of flags and options which influence each others, so I must be sure that when I enable an option, all the others must work together the new one, but when I disable an option, this should not exist at all
17:37:30  <fjb> Industries with stockpiling can change their mind a few times between loading a vehicle and the vehicle reaching the industry. I don't think that it can be used to distribute the cargos is respect to stockpiling.
17:38:15  <Eddi|zuHause> very loosely related question: why don't wagons have any running cost?
17:38:35  <Wolf01> yeah, good point
17:38:38  <ccfreak2k> Because they would have maintenance costs instead.
17:38:39  <Eddi|zuHause> (or change the running cost of the engine)
17:41:16  <fjb> And making the new option play nicely together with all other options is not the biggest problem. Look at the amount of cargos that gets transportet. So even a small overhead will have an impact.
17:41:30  <Wolf01> mmmh, since when I started the hotkeys patch I didn't read any suggestion, do this mean that I can continue my work?
17:42:51  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: don't talk about overhead before you implemented and profiled anything

18:01:19  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: rembember what i said? add struct, check multiplayer compliance... there was nothing said about WHAT you write in the struct member!!

18:01:58  <mikk36> hey
18:02:00  <Eddi|zuHause> and remembering last station will solve nothing, it will just push the problem to the next level (3 vehicles going in circles)
18:02:09  <mikk36> q: what could be the problem when i i get error when starting up autopilot, stating that there's an error for math function, while executing expr (pow(2,[get_setting patches map_y])) ?
18:02:36  <glx> mikk36: using trunk?
18:02:40  <mikk36> yes
18:02:44  <mikk36> today's
18:02:55  <Eddi|zuHause> mikk36: .cfg format has changed
18:03:04  <mikk36> so...
18:03:12  <Eddi|zuHause> several weeks ago
18:03:21  <mikk36> no autopilot until someone has updated it ?
18:03:34  <glx> so autopilot needs to be updated for trunk
18:03:38  <mikk36> ok then
18:04:02  <Eddi|zuHause> [get_setting patches map_y] <- replace the "patches" there with the new group
18:04:23  <Eddi|zuHause> and in the map_x line as well
18:04:46  <glx> and all get_setting lines indeed ;)
18:07:29  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: That will ofcourse be no automatic distribution system. You will still have to plan your routes. but it woul make bidirectinal traffic possible.
18:07:54  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: i understand what it dies
18:07:59  <Eddi|zuHause> *does
18:08:10  <Eddi|zuHause> but i said it will not solve anything
18:08:21  <Eddi|zuHause> scenario: 3 airports
18:08:29  <Eddi|zuHause> plane 1: 1<->2
18:08:35  <Eddi|zuHause> plane 2: 2<->3
18:08:40  <Eddi|zuHause> plane 3: 1<->3
18:08:41  <fjb> It will solve the no bidirectional distribution problem.
18:08:55  <Eddi|zuHause> the passengers might go in circles indefinitely
18:09:09  <Eddi|zuHause> because they get "catched" by a plane before they can enter the shuttle bus
18:09:35  <fjb> Yes. When your network is not properly made you carry the passengers in circle. Just as you do tzoday.
18:09:41  <Eddi|zuHause> it shifts the problem, does not solve it
18:09:41  <Ammler> mikk36: do you need a patch for ap?
18:10:01  <Eddi|zuHause> as thus i would definitely reject the "solution"
18:10:20  *** yorick [~yorick@s55924da0.adsl.wanadoo.nl] has joined #openttd
18:11:16  <fjb> You can always build unusual networks. And a feature is not no solution to a problem because it is not foolproof.
18:11:16  <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause, fjb: You should better come up with a way, to determine which station a vehicle will visit next. Esp. when not using 'non-stop' orders.
18:11:57  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: planes connecting different airports is definitely not an "unusual" network
18:12:10  <fjb> frosch123: That sounds like a loop through the orders list.
18:12:24  <frosch123> when not using 'non-stop'?
18:12:32  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: trains need not have all stations they visit in the orders
18:12:46  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: A planed connection please, not just random connections without thinking.
18:13:25  <Eddi|zuHause> you are talking rubbish
18:14:18  <Eddi|zuHause> both frosch123's and my objections are valid reasons to reject your approach
18:14:31  <fjb> frosch123: Hm, ok, because of that I said that vehicle should not pick up the packet if the station it last came from is anywhere on the orders list, not just the next station on the list.
18:14:52  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: that does not catch ring-traffic
18:15:28  <Eddi|zuHause> and again, the station need not be in the order list AT ALL
18:15:48  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: That is what I wrote.
18:16:36  <fjb> It still needs a well planes network then, no random network.
18:16:42  <fjb> planed
18:16:54  <Eddi|zuHause> you mean "planned"
18:17:15  * frosch123 came to the conclusion that there will never be way to predict the next station. Only working solution (I know of) would be to let the user specify for each order, which passengers are allowed to board. But who will be able to use such a system...
18:18:10  <Eddi|zuHause> that's exactly what i mean, the approach is just not practical because it is too fixed on patching up a symptom, not the cause of the problem
18:18:41  <fjb> frosch123: When thinking about it, you are right. That feature would have to be coupled to nonstop orders. I didn't think about that.
18:18:53  <Eddi|zuHause> and no matter how many patches you stick on, there will always be wounds that are bigger than the patch
18:19:57  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: But I don't think your automatic distribution system will really solve anything. At least not the stockpiling difficulties.
18:20:34  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: that is not the goal at all
18:20:48  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: And it is big news to me that you can reject any new approach any new feature.
18:21:20  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: have you learned the magic of a CONDITIONAL clause yet?
18:22:09  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: So why did you add your selself then?
18:22:14  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: assume an implicit "if i was in the position of a dev"
18:23:07  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: and i already got at least one dev who backed me up on some of my statements and conclusions
18:24:35  <frosch123> what? - I was going against both of you...
18:25:00  <Eddi|zuHause> i was not talking about you ;)
18:25:28  <frosch123> ah ok :) nevermind

18:27:16  <Eddi|zuHause> anyway, the last paxdest patch used a prediction about connection based on the order list, and then expanded these connections once stations were actually visited by a vehicle [under the assumption that the vehicle will at some point visit the station again]
18:27:22  <Belugas> who then?
18:28:53  <Eddi|zuHause> the stations built up a number of possible connections and a statistic about how long the travel time there usually takes, and then made decisions what vehicles the passengers would take
18:29:15  <fjb> Belugas: I fear he was talking about you.

19:09:26  <mikk36> why is there so short message size limit ?
19:10:10  <Belugas> ?
19:11:37  <yorick> Belugas: the chat limit got decreased drastically somewhere between 0.6 and current trunk
19:13:12  <Belugas> drastically?
19:13:15  <Belugas> like...
19:13:25  <Belugas> by how much chars?
19:13:28  <Belugas> since when?
19:13:42  <Belugas> it's supposed to be 64 chars, i believe
19:14:28  <yorick> I don't think it is
19:14:32  <yorick> I'll check 0.6
19:15:31  <planetmaker> it is 64 chars or so. But longer would be better. And it was longer before :), but got fixed
19:15:56  <yorick> I can fit the alfabet in it 3 times
19:16:00  <yorick> in 0.6
19:16:06  <yorick> 'fixed'
19:16:15  <yorick> since when is decreasing limits called fixing?
19:16:46  <Eddi|zuHause> afaik it was limited by the window width before, which is totally unrelated to the number of characters
19:17:00  <Belugas> since when imprecision drives everything?
19:17:20  <yorick> but why did it have to be made this short?
19:17:56  <Eddi|zuHause> most
19:17:57  <Eddi|zuHause> people
19:17:58  <Eddi|zuHause> make
19:17:59  <Eddi|zuHause> only
19:18:01  <Eddi|zuHause> one
19:18:02  <Eddi|zuHause> word
19:18:04  <yorick> per
19:18:06  <yorick> message
19:18:08  <yorick> but
19:18:10  <yorick> I
19:18:11  <yorick> don't
19:18:14  <yorick> normally
19:18:15  <yorick> do
19:18:16  <yorick> that
19:18:16  <mikk36> i neither
19:18:18  <Eddi|zuHause> :p
19:18:30  <yorick> and 64 chars is really short
19:18:51  <Eddi|zuHause> that's what you get when you have to go with the majority :p
19:19:03  <eekee> argh 64 is impossible! I used an environment with a 255-char limit for a long time, that was harsh
19:19:07  <yorick> like I can only fit a message in it that's exactly this lenght
19:19:20  <mikk36> 1 sentence per message is really short
19:19:50  <Eddi|zuHause> provide a patch that adds a hook to split lines at word boundaries ;)
19:20:04  <yorick> wuh?
19:20:10  <Eddi|zuHause> [not necessary ALL word boundaries]
19:20:41  <yorick> juse I'd rather have a longer chat limit
19:20:56  <yorick> because openttd does the linebreaking, no?
19:21:56  <planetmaker> it's reasonable to have a limit so that a message where you fell asleep on your keyboard doesn't flush the whole chat.
19:22:00  <Eddi|zuHause> you see, when you write a really long line that makes absolutely no sense but you want to not press enter inbetween it automatically figures out which word will overlap the line limit and split the line before that word, so you can safely type on and on and on and on till the dawn breaks and never get interrupted by any stupid line limit
19:22:23  <planetmaker> :P
19:22:36  <yorick> irc also has a line limit somewhere
19:22:42  <Eddi|zuHause> it adds line breaks on display, but not on sending
19:22:53  <yorick> altho it was previously SHORTER than the openttd limit
19:22:54  <Eddi|zuHause> and the send buffer is what limits the line length
19:22:55  <Ammler> yorick: you can also see on our ps, that ottd can still handle longer lines, as it does with chat from IRC
19:23:01  <planetmaker> a limit doesn't hurt as long as it's not limit to usual sentences :)
19:23:14  <Eddi|zuHause> IRC has 512 characters limit afaik
19:23:25  <planetmaker> and my usual sentences easily cover twice or three times as many characters as 64 :)
19:23:32  <yorick> Ammler, yes, the actualy message is tranffered over a much longer char
19:23:55  <yorick> I find it stupid that you can not write messages as long as the limit gui-wise
19:24:09  <Ammler> the ingame chat is a bug, I assume and not feature :-)
19:24:19  <yorick> it is ;(
19:24:52  <planetmaker> rather both: buggy feature :P
19:25:24  <Ammler> yorick: as network patcher, you should be able to fix it :P
19:25:30  <planetmaker> but bug sounds so... wrong. Let's call it a feature with room for improvements :)
19:25:47  <yorick> Ammler, I'm already looking into it
19:26:15  <Eddi|zuHause> a feature with room for "features" :p
19:26:59  <yorick> #define MAX_TEXT_MSG_LEN 1024
19:27:10  <yorick> can I now kill the one who tought of that 64 gui-limit

19:27:15  <DorpsGek> yorick: 16
19:27:32  <yorick> you made the gui-chat limit actually 16 times smaller than it could be
19:27:42  <yorick> congratulations :)
19:28:36  <glx> <yorick> #define MAX_TEXT_MSG_LEN 1024 <-- and how does that fit in a packet?

19:29:03  <yorick> tcp*
19:29:16  <ben_goodger> glx: with an MTU of 1500 I'd expect it to fit quite nicely
19:29:22  <glx> yorick: and the 64 limit appeared with window classification
19:29:23  <fjb> jumbo packets...
19:29:51  <glx> because all other text input are 64

19:35:46  <yorick> glx: yeah, it involves changing 2 numbers
19:36:10  <glx> yorick: but other text input should stay 64

20:38:43  <yorick> and does ttd know tto format?
20:39:09  <eekee> OTTD used to load TTD format, if I remember right
20:40:17  <glx> and it still loads it
20:49:24  <ccfreak2k> "TTO save games not supported" would probably be the best way to handle it.
20:49:32  <ccfreak2k> Assuming TTO saved games are different from TTD.
