00:00:09  <Eoin> well
00:00:14  <Eoin> No one in scotland likes the tories
00:00:25  <OwenS> Yeah, they only got one seat
00:00:27  <Eddi|zuHause> Eoin: i thought they got one seat
00:00:34  <Eoin> they did
00:00:36  <Eoin> lol
00:00:41  <Eoin> not one seat changed in scotland
00:00:41  *** last_evolution [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:00:44  <Eoin> we are all like "change"
00:00:47  <Eoin> aye, maybe tommorow
00:00:50  <Eddi|zuHause> that means at least in one section, a "majority" likes them ;)
00:00:59  <Eoin> but its south scotland
00:01:04  <Eoin> nearer you get to england
00:01:08  <Eoin> more they tories are loved
00:01:17  <Eoin> tories came fourth in my seat
00:01:23  <Eoin> labour > snp > lib dem > tories
00:01:35  <Eoin> and other half of city was
00:01:41  <Eoin> snp > labour > lib dem > tories
00:03:00  <OwenS> Mine was Lab >> Con >> LD (held); south was Con > Lab > LD (By .5%!), East was LD >> Lab > Con, with a 21.8% to LD swing

00:57:47  <orudge> Eoin: see, if we had PR though, the Tories would have half a dozen or so seats in Scotland
00:58:01  <orudge> there are certainly quite a few Tory supporters, just not quite as many as there are Labour and SNP :p

11:52:13  <andythenorth> can we teach the AI to build rivers?
11:52:27  <Eddi|zuHause> no

11:54:19  <planetmaker> andythenorth, first we'd have to teach us building rivers ingame. Something which is easily solved but I don't know anymore why it wasn't wanted back then
11:54:20  *** HerzogDeXtEr [~Administr@] has joined #openttd
11:54:28  <andythenorth> can we make it possible for rivers to be built in game?
11:54:34  <planetmaker> very easily
11:54:44  <Redirect_Left> isn't that a just a big canal?
11:54:52  <andythenorth> it's a canal with funny sprites :)
11:54:57  <andythenorth> and no locks
11:55:00  <planetmaker> andythenorth, I even have a patch for that somewhere...
11:55:11  <Ammler> wwottdgd/2
11:55:22  <planetmaker> exactly
11:55:28  *** theholyduck [~holyduck@] has joined #openttd
11:55:30  <Eddi|zuHause> ... i have this old river generation patch lying around
11:55:31  <planetmaker> updating should be fairly simple
11:55:32  <andythenorth> did anyone try river generation algorithms?
11:55:38  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, you, too? ;-)
11:55:48  <Eddi|zuHause> but it depends on rivers on half-slopes
11:55:52  <planetmaker> andythenorth, afaik only Eddi and myself tried
11:55:58  <andythenorth> I wondered if it would be fun for an AI....just start at the coast and work upwards, trying to take turns every so often
11:56:14  <planetmaker> sounds like the wrong concept for river generation.
11:56:25  <planetmaker> It's not an AI task. It's a generic game task
11:56:51  <Eddi|zuHause> also it needs improvements wrt. getting stuck at minor or major obstacles
11:56:52  <planetmaker> using an AI doesn't really offer an advantage there IMHO
11:57:12  <planetmaker> yeah... slopes are a bitch. That's where the assertions strike
11:57:30  <planetmaker> and path finding. That's where it starts to look funny under certain conditions
11:58:18  <Eddi|zuHause> well, i just started somewhere, and went until there was a sink in the tgp-heightmap
11:58:41  <Eddi|zuHause> but this way, rivers tend to end on seemingly flat terrain
11:58:52  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, yeah, that results in lakes
11:59:12  <planetmaker> If you walk up it works, too, but rivers might be quite short...
11:59:24  <andythenorth> in some countries canals are major civil projects (rather than commercial projects), so a canal-building AI could be fun
11:59:24  <andythenorth> hmmm
11:59:24  <andythenorth> highways also
11:59:26  <andythenorth> AI for major infrastructure projects?
11:59:26  <andythenorth> we'd need a way to send it money via taxes :P
11:59:33  <planetmaker> <-- andythenorth there are my old patches
12:00:20  <planetmaker> andythenorth, no need for that. Just make it build routes with a vehicle preference. And proper algorithm. Then those things will happen automatically
12:00:32  <andythenorth> capitalism :P
12:00:39  <planetmaker> Look at current road AIs. They build huge road networks.
12:00:44  <andythenorth> I'm surprised by all you Europeans being so free-market :P
12:00:46  <planetmaker> Teach them to build highways and you're set
12:01:07  <planetmaker> highways as opposed to the normal roads they congest now

12:28:37  *** lugo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:29:22  <planetmaker> looks ok, though you use no random triggers nor random bits (you mask out everything)
12:29:54  <planetmaker> or I don't understand it. Rather likely
12:31:51  *** George3 is now known as George
12:32:54  <planetmaker> I'd try ...C1 8D 03...
12:33:40  <planetmaker> or whatever reason you want to call the randomizer, change the 2nd byte I quoted
12:34:07  <George> random-triggers 00 - when build
12:34:29  <planetmaker> is that so?
12:34:32  <George> randbit 00 is bit 0 is first bit
12:34:42  <planetmaker> 1st bit is 01
12:35:38  <planetmaker> it's a mask. And I don't see where you get the 00 = when build information from
12:35:58  <George> or untriggered bits, set only at the time of purchase
12:36:10  <George> (from wiki)
12:36:19  <planetmaker> link?
12:36:27  <George>
12:36:29  <planetmaker> the link you gave doesn't stat that.
12:36:43  <planetmaker> 0	01	Vehicle gets new load of cargo (only after it was empty)
12:36:43  <planetmaker> 1	02	Vehicle enters a depot and is serviced
12:36:43  <planetmaker> 2	04	The consist has unloaded all cargo
12:36:43  <planetmaker> 3	08	Any vehicle of the consist receives cargo
12:36:43  <planetmaker> 4	10	Callback 32 returned 1
12:36:52  <planetmaker> ^ those triggers are available. No "upon build"
12:37:10  <George> random-triggers
12:37:10  <George> This is a bit mask of triggers which cause re-randomizing. Normally, any matching trigger causes the graphics to be randomized again, but if you add 80 to the bitmask, the re-randomizing only happens if all triggers have occurred.
12:37:10  <George>
12:37:10  <George> Trigger bits are feature-specific, see below.
12:37:10  <George>
12:37:11  <George> randbit
12:37:11  <George> For versions before 2.0.1 alpha 30, leave this at 00. It doesn't quite work the way intended (it was supposed to allow independent random chains, but currently everything is re-randomized at the same time, thereby defeating this mechanism).
12:37:14  <George>
12:37:14  <George> Since 2.0.1 alpha 30, only those bits that actually get triggered will be re-randomized. Prior versions always re-randomized all bits. This will make it possible to have independent sets of bits for independent triggers (or untriggered bits, set only at the time of purchase). Setting randbit determines the first bit to be re-randomized, as well as basing the random graphics on. The total number of bits used is the 2-logarithm of nrand below (e.g., for nrand
12:37:40  <planetmaker> yes?
12:37:55  <planetmaker> I don't  read your conclusion from that
12:38:08  <George> it says "or untriggered bits, set only at the time of purchase"
12:38:37  <planetmaker> yes, ok
12:38:46  <George> that means that on purchase the randomisations always happens
12:38:53  *** theholyduck [~holyduck@] has joined #openttd

12:42:28  <George> why?
12:43:23  <planetmaker> you want to start with the 1st bit :-)
12:43:29  <planetmaker> and it's a bit mask
12:46:20  <George> wiki says "Setting randbit determines the first bit to be re-randomized"
12:46:46  <George> value 00 means start from first bit

12:51:38  <peter1138> ahh, the well documented NFO strikes again
12:51:44  <George> So, as you can see I test the position in the chan, but it is not absolutely correct

12:55:06  <George> planetmaker: yes, but the problem is that how can I test the whole chain?

13:01:23  * peter1138 remembers the days before the pts/x switchover
13:01:25  <Eddi|zuHause> what matters is that someone who doesn't code NFO every day can understand what's supposed to be going on without flipping back and forth in the specs
13:01:36  <George> Well, back to topic. is value C1 correct and should check random bits of the first vehicle in a row with the same ID?

13:07:03  <Eddi|zuHause> ... hm... i shouldn't try to do three things simultaneously
13:08:59  <peter1138> so the C1 makes it start from the first vehicle in the chain with the same ID

13:19:58  <peter1138> do you know where in the chain it crashes?
13:20:57  <George> The crash happens when I press "new vehicle" bottom in depot
13:22:30  <peter1138> hm
13:22:38  <peter1138> looks like it could happen if the vehicle doesn't actually exist yet

13:58:59  <theholyduck> and finally, what if loads of people wants to board the train?
13:59:11  <Doorslammer> Oh, I don't think that's the biggest worry here

13:59:52  <theholyduck> not to mention

14:00:53  <Doorslammer> I bet their current catenary requirements have scuppered it already too
14:01:24  * theholyduck wishes the norwegian train system was more reliable
14:01:51  <theholyduck> there has been only minimal maintenance on it for years apparently.
14:01:57  <theholyduck> and now its falling appart everywhere
14:02:45  <Doorslammer> The opposite has an even funnier ring to it

14:03:27  <Doorslammer> "Why on earth did this happen?"
14:05:32  <Doorslammer> Like things don't break on catenary systems...

14:12:01  <theholyduck> Doorslammer, there was a huge train related accident in norway this year actually
14:12:08  <Doorslammer> Was there?
14:12:12  <theholyduck> Doorslammer, some trains at a station came loose or something
14:12:19  <theholyduck> at the top of a hill
14:12:30  <theholyduck> and went down sevral km of hills
14:12:32  <Doorslammer> Crikey, in Norway?
14:12:37  <theholyduck> untill derailing and flying straight through a dock
14:12:44  <theholyduck> through houses, cars, and what not
14:12:46  <theholyduck> Doorslammer, yeah
14:13:54  <Doorslammer> How on earth can something like that happen in 2010.  Did we suddenly fly back to 1889 or something?
14:13:59  <Doorslammer> Something similar in South Africa too
14:14:46  <theholyduck> Doorslammer, well the breaks didnt work
14:14:47  <theholyduck> apparently
14:14:55  <theholyduck> Doorslammer, they did manage to route it off the trafficated lines
14:15:01  <theholyduck> but didnt have time to get people out of the way
14:15:14  <Doorslammer> Thats still a bit mad

17:56:19  <Sacro>
17:58:14  <Belugas> Wolf01, and what to do when there are no slopes?
17:58:40  <Wolf01> draw nothing
17:58:53  <Belugas> then your not really better
17:59:05  <Belugas> two standards are bad, i'd say
17:59:19  <Belugas> one for foundations, one for nothing
17:59:20  <Belugas> bad
17:59:34  <Wolf01> then draw a plane tile, so it looks like the road is transparent
18:04:19  <Belugas> so... basically, you're saying that roads should be transparent and invisible
18:04:28  <Wolf01> yep
18:04:42  <Belugas> aqnd right now, they are just invisible
18:06:28  <Wolf01> if you draw a transparent overlay, like it works for bridges, houses.. the roads should look like transparent too, but we need to add the overlay only when the transparency is active
18:07:16  <Wolf01> there is no need to draw the standard tile + the transparent road tile when the road is "solid"

18:12:07  <Ammler> you can't delete
18:12:11  <COLT> I'am Polish Set developer
18:12:36  <Ammler> but you could upload a new version, then the old isn't available anymore
18:12:39  <COLT> then how to remove it from bananas
18:12:51  <COLT> i write
18:12:55  <Ammler> or hide it with min/max version
18:12:57  <Belugas> Wolf01, it "feels" decent, i'd say

18:17:33  <Ammler> so you can update that
18:18:01  <Ammler> so the old set will automatically be hidden
18:19:47  <COLT> i wrote post on forum maybe that helps :)
18:19:51  <andythenorth> evening
18:20:08  <Ammler> I would recommend to use "set account" if you are team, but TB doesn't like that.
18:21:03  <Ammler> COLT: or mail to rubidium|
18:21:08  <planetmaker> COLT: you make yourself an account and ask one of the bananas admins nicely whether they give your account also access to the set
18:21:30  <planetmaker> Though not user-configurable, it's possible for more than one account to have access to an entry
18:21:41  <planetmaker> One thing no single account can do is to delete an old entry.
18:22:11  <planetmaker> And that's something which the TOS state: you agree that things are allowed to be kept eternally on bananas
18:22:52  <planetmaker> good evening andythenorth :-)
18:23:34  *** theholyduck [~holyduck@] has joined #openttd
18:23:55  <planetmaker> COLT, but something you should not do is to create a new entry for an update of the Polish train set.
18:24:08  <planetmaker> Then you made sure that the old entry will remain active ;-)
18:24:31  *** welshdragon [~welshdrag@] has joined #openttd
18:25:10  <Rubidium> planetmaker: they changed the GRF ID, so it's considered a new NewGRF
18:25:36  <COLT> yes i chnged id to can upload
18:26:37  <planetmaker> Rubidium, always? IIRC FIRS and 2cctrainset have already updated old versions by changing the GRFID
18:26:40  <Ammler> colt the only reason?
18:26:48  <Ammler> else it would still be compatible?
18:27:02  <planetmaker> but might be that at the same time the max version for the old ones was limited to something reasonably low
18:27:12  <Rubidium> planetmaker: don't know whether updating checks for the same NewGRF ID
18:27:18  <Ammler> same entry can have different ID, but not same ID different entries
18:27:21  <planetmaker> Rubidium, I think it doesn't
18:27:33  <planetmaker> (which I consider sensible)
18:27:45  <planetmaker> If the author knows what they do ;-)
18:28:10  <Rubidium> ah, yes... looking at the DB that seems possible
18:28:21  <Ammler> COLT: why do you ask here, if you do anyway what you want?
18:28:27  <planetmaker> even OpenGFX exercised that with the extra newgrf ;-)
18:28:51  <COLT> remove old version of Polish Set 1.5a

18:29:06  <planetmaker> COLT, that's not possible, won't happen. You agreed that it won't happen.
18:29:09  <planetmaker> Or the old author did
18:29:20  <planetmaker> You even agreed that your current uploaded version will NEVER be removed

18:29:44  <Rubidium> planetmaker: I don't think that base sets test GRF IDs
18:30:00  <Rubidium> also, there are two explanations of removing something
18:30:08  <planetmaker> yes, may be.
18:30:39  <Rubidium> the "removing it from the list that will be shown in-game" vs "removing it completely so it can't be found by GRF ID + md5 checksum anymore"
18:30:52  <Rubidium> the former can be done, the latter won't be done
18:31:53  <Rubidium> there, now he should be happ

18:33:22  <planetmaker> Rubidium, what license did the old one have?
18:33:32  <Rubidium> the same
18:33:36  <planetmaker> ok :-)
18:33:53  <COLT> ok one more thanx and sry for a problem
18:34:11  <Ammler> colt, how can a team develop a "ND" set?
18:34:42  <planetmaker> :-) good question. May you modify stuff from the old author? ;-)
18:35:36  <Rubidium> if the copyright is assigned to the same entity there should be no problem at all
18:36:43  <Ammler> Rubidium: I know, it is possible, I just wonder, how they manage such a complex license ;-)
18:38:02  <Ammler> what is a legal entity?
18:39:13  * andythenorth is a legal entity
18:39:17  <planetmaker> Ammler, many things can be. Also a bunch of people
18:39:21  <andythenorth> should vehicle reliability be hidden?
18:39:30  <Wolf01> Belugas, so... it might be a good idea?
18:39:33  <planetmaker> anything which can be sued basically
18:39:43  <andythenorth> or which can hold copyright (for example)
18:39:49  <andythenorth> or enter into a contract
18:39:51  <Ammler> andythenorth: single persons is easy
18:40:12  <planetmaker> andythenorth, "can enter contracts" is - afaik - the important thing
18:40:31  <Belugas> Wolf01, i've not said that.  I said it felt decent, mostly talking about the arguments
18:40:52  <Belugas> i don't feel in a postion to say it's a good idea or not
18:42:28  *** fonsinchen [] has joined #openttd
18:43:38  <andythenorth> interesting
18:43:54  <andythenorth> planetmaker...I was going to tidy up your newgrf GUI layout, but ChillCore got there first :)
18:44:03  <andythenorth> it looks ok, I can't read the buttons though :O
18:45:08  *** COLT [] has quit [Quit: goodnight]
18:45:52  <frosch123> the details panel is far too small on the horizontal arrangements. it could never take widgets for paramters
18:47:16  <andythenorth> frosch123: from what I can see, most people don't care about that
18:47:39  <andythenorth> :)
18:47:55  <andythenorth> the lists are the main thing for most of the players who've commented
18:48:17  * andythenorth wonders though
18:48:19  <frosch123> because there is nothing much with parameters yet :p
18:48:24  <andythenorth> also....
18:48:55  <andythenorth> the people commenting here and on the forums are serious power users of the game.  They know the grfs, and they care about things like MD5 sum and the ordering of newgrfs
18:49:41  <andythenorth> meanwhile....I watch the bananas download counts for newgrfs.  They are *way* out of proportion to visits to the newgrf forums
18:50:22  <andythenorth> I reckon it's very easy to ignore the experience of all those players who just get the game and only use bananas

18:54:04  * andythenorth doesn't have the hump but is a bit baffled by the GUI justifications
18:54:18  <andythenorth> if the lists are so important why keep making them so small?  It's bizarre.
18:54:54  <andythenorth> it's like when some of you tell me the proper way to do something with code and I just say "no thanks, I just want a dirty hack" very frustrating :P
18:55:06  <frosch123> whats small about them?
18:55:45  <planetmaker> frosch123: andythenorth I honestly don't care much about whether Alberth's vertical list arrangement or my horizontal one gets implemented
18:55:51  <frosch123> you can always make them to not open in the smallest size
18:55:57  <planetmaker> if the vertical one by Alberth is more future proof: quite fine with me
18:56:23  <andythenorth> Let's all fall out about it !   Fork Fork!
18:56:25  <andythenorth> Or not
18:56:26  <planetmaker> and yes, I see that the detail information is too small. Chillcore's mockup actually shows it clearly. The 2cctrainset description is truncated in his view
18:56:27  <andythenorth> :D
18:56:40  <frosch123> planetmaker: if i got it right, due to nested widgets it does not matter at all, as it can be easily changed :p
18:56:51  <planetmaker> :-)
18:56:56  *** Polygon [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:57:01  <planetmaker> frosch123: quite true
18:57:29  <planetmaker> apropos change: was it agreed upon that the difficulty choice can go without replacement?
18:57:29  *** Polygon [] has joined #openttd
18:57:41  <frosch123> andy has nice button arrangements btw :)
18:57:59  * andythenorth waves bye bye to difficulty
18:58:01  <planetmaker> yes, he has
18:58:24  <planetmaker> they're in my local repo already moved to the adv. settings - but now the (old) difficulty window has many undefined strings :-P
18:58:30  <planetmaker> so it has to go ;-)
18:58:42  <andythenorth> I think the 2 list, info below version can be tidied up.  I might try.  My taste is irrelevant to solving the problem.
18:58:50  <planetmaker> andythenorth: we forgot one thing in the main GUI: the highscore :-)
18:58:58  <andythenorth> ha
18:58:59  <frosch123> planetmaker: i do not care about difficulties, but i guess it also requires trashing the highscore. which it do not care either :p
18:59:03  <andythenorth> stupid highscores :)
18:59:08  <frosch123> however, i am not the only one
18:59:26  <planetmaker> frosch123: it doesn't require that. Just making it accessible from the main menu will hopefully work
18:59:43  <frosch123> isn't highscore per difficulty level?
18:59:51  <planetmaker> hm... I don't know :-)
19:00:02  <frosch123> i might be mistaken as well :)
19:00:03  <planetmaker> So far I only moved the settings ;-)
19:01:31  * planetmaker now clones the repo to the devzone
19:02:24  *** devilsadvocate [~devilsadv@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
19:02:36  <frosch123> yes, the highscore is per difficulty level
19:02:42  <frosch123> so only "custom" would remain
19:02:56  <planetmaker> that doesn't really bother me :-)
19:03:05  <frosch123> same would hold for newgrfs (i guess only ecs vectors use it)
19:03:23  <planetmaker> hm?
19:03:48  <planetmaker> oh, they can read that? Why does no one use it? :-)
19:03:52  *** Polygon [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
19:03:55  <frosch123> ecs disallows turning of stockpiles, resources and such when on "hard" setting
19:04:02  <planetmaker> tsk
19:04:25  *** Polygon [] has joined #openttd
19:04:54  <frosch123> but i guess, if someone complains then due to removing the highscore or their nice "hard" setting or so
19:05:37  <planetmaker> well. I'm thinking of possibly re-adding that then under the game generation menu
19:06:00  <planetmaker> With a revised list of settings which constitute difficulty levels
19:06:22  <planetmaker> Maybe some kind of indicator in the adv. settings which shows which settings are affected
19:06:52  <planetmaker> And only have the difficulty choice obvious on a 2nd 'new game' tab. Jointly with the amount of towns and industries or so
19:07:17  *** Devedse [] has quit [Quit: Ik ga weg]
19:07:34  <planetmaker> So: 1st tab: Only map settings. 2nd, 3rd tab: newgrf + AI, 4th tab: difficulty + access to adv. settings
19:08:02  <planetmaker> + town#, town names
19:08:18  <planetmaker> those things which don't belong strictly to map in the smallest sense
19:08:45  <planetmaker> or that tab is just the diff. settings and the adv. settings displayed below... hm
19:08:59  <planetmaker> sounds nearly like a plan ;-)
19:09:09  <planetmaker> yes, I like talking to myself :-P
19:12:20  <frosch123> i guess one highscore for all settings should be enough
19:13:08  <planetmaker> I guess so, too
19:13:31  <frosch123> there is no point in distinguishing them by difficulty, as there are more important settings like map size :p
19:13:39  <planetmaker> :-) yup
19:14:05  <frosch123> but likely newbies need some kind of highscore until they learn that they have to build 200 busstops or so :p
19:14:13  <planetmaker> hehe
19:14:25  <planetmaker> actually that assumption isn't true anymore ;-)
19:14:33  <planetmaker> though bus stops help.
19:15:02  <frosch123> i guess highscore should be on main menu
19:15:07  <planetmaker> yes.
19:15:10  <frosch123> iirc it is there for most games
19:15:26  <planetmaker> I think changing the 'difficulty' button to 'highscores' is what I like to do :-)
19:15:42  <frosch123> would keep the layout :p
19:15:49  *** devilsadvocate [~devilsadv@] has joined #openttd
19:16:06  <planetmaker> the main menu layout is something only to be changed once things are (also) found in the game creation dialogue ;-)
19:17:05  *** lewymati [~lewymati@] has quit []
19:17:27  * Rubidium wonders what the point of adding two more settings to the map generation window are; there are already too much things to choose from for most people
19:18:39  <planetmaker> Rubidium: you mean those patches I posted?
19:19:13  <Rubidium> yep
19:19:15  <planetmaker> those two are two things which one really might want to change from game to game - unlike most adv. settings
19:19:35  <planetmaker> driving side depends upon whether I chose db set or japanese set. As do town names
19:19:41  <andythenorth> planetmaker: resp. towns + industries etc. on a 2nd tab.....that's my conclusion too
19:19:43  <planetmaker> The other settings can remain
19:19:50  <planetmaker> andythenorth: yes, that will come
19:19:51  <Rubidium> but then they're more related to NewGRF settings
19:19:57  <andythenorth> hence something like 'gameplay settings' or 'world settings' or some such name
19:20:03  <planetmaker> Rubidium: in a way
19:20:19  <planetmaker> As stated there, they're a first step
19:20:34  <planetmaker> In a 2nd step I'd like to move them to a separate tab in the new game dialogue
19:20:43  <Rubidium> also the language changes are a big mess due to breaking the alignment
19:20:56  <planetmaker> hm :S
19:21:05  <Rubidium> maybe doing it in the reverse order is better
19:21:14  <planetmaker> what in reverse order?
19:21:32  <Rubidium> first making the separate tab with some stuff, then moving the game options to that tab
19:21:57  <planetmaker> ah
19:22:16  <planetmaker> yeah, maybe an idea
19:22:26  <andythenorth> he could be right :)
19:24:12  <planetmaker> making tabs is the difficult part of all this anyway :-)

19:25:06  <planetmaker> you're the graphics artist :-P
19:25:19  <andythenorth> well it has to be rectangular :)

21:09:55  <planetmaker> andythenorth: <-- not quite elaborate, but something like that

21:14:38  *** Grelouk [~Grelouk@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
21:14:39  <planetmaker> but then it's a mockup only ;-). So inkscape saved the parts which overlap, too
21:15:18  <Zuu> Indeed, those extra pixels does hardly matter.
21:23:54  <planetmaker> <-- still too big, but with the newgrf selection dialogue open
21:24:27  <Ammler> no "next" button?
21:24:39  <Ammler> how do you go forward?
21:24:51  <Zuu> Click at the tabs at the top?
21:24:58  <Ammler> that isn't logical
21:25:31  <Zuu> Depends on where you come from.
21:25:32  <Ammler> or obvious at least :-)
21:26:02  <Ammler> well, I know no "wizard" working that way, do you?
21:26:31  <Ammler> tabs might be fine to indicate where you are
21:26:32  <Zuu> Depends if you want to make it like a wizard or more like something with several tabs.
21:26:49  <Ammler> but then you need a button start game
21:26:54  <Ammler> on every tab
21:27:11  <Zuu> It's at the bottom, always vissible
21:27:28  <planetmaker> Ammler: clicking on tabs is quite logical to me
21:27:37  <Ammler> ah, "Generate World" is a button?
21:27:45  <planetmaker> but next and previous could go next to the generate button in the bottom
21:27:47  <Zuu> The tab-book widget would end not at the bottom but say 60 pixles up from the bottom of the window.
21:27:47  <planetmaker> yes
21:27:58  <Ammler> no, all fine then :-)
21:28:06  <andythenorth> planetmaker:
21:28:18  <andythenorth> Ammler it's not a wizard
21:28:27  <andythenorth> it wizard is *really* annoying
21:28:29  <Ammler> andythenorth: yeah, I see now
21:29:26  *** Chillosophy [] has quit []
21:29:28  <andythenorth> planetmaker: in the design above....I would propose a future addition of 'more info'
21:29:38  <andythenorth> for each newgrf (with a popup window)
21:29:45  <planetmaker> hm, yes
21:30:27  <andythenorth> I am pushing the two list thing to see if it works
21:30:37  <andythenorth> (side by side lists I should say)
21:30:38  <planetmaker> andythenorth: IMHO in your mockup the tabs are not clearly enough visible as tabs
21:30:47  <andythenorth> nope they aren't very 'tab'
21:31:07  <andythenorth> I'm not happy with those.
21:31:08  <planetmaker> you may notice that I just used Alberth's newgrf GUI ;-)
21:31:16  <Ammler> dunno, if "tab" is openttdish
21:31:26  <Ammler> buttons looks nice
21:31:30  <Zuu> Old advanced settings dialog had it.
21:31:31  <planetmaker> my mockup rather targeted the gui as a whole with an inset for the others
21:31:35  *** Kurimus [] has quit []
21:31:51  <planetmaker> Ammler: it's a proven, easily recognizable GUI element
21:31:55  <planetmaker> and what Zuu says
21:32:02  <planetmaker> says? sais?
21:32:11  <Ammler> yes, those were buttons like andy made
21:32:12  <Zuu> Depending on if you by 'tab' refer to the kind of gui or making the tabs appear visually as tabs.
21:32:16  <andythenorth> I think on balance I like Alberth's newgrf gui....but tell me, when you have one list above the other, what do the buttons 'move up' and 'move down' imply?
21:32:40  <planetmaker> :-)
21:32:48  <andythenorth> and arrows don't help either :|
21:33:16  <andythenorth> As a newgrf author I like the big 'info' box in Alberth's design.  More space for me :)
21:33:20  <andythenorth> to put words in :)
21:33:28  <planetmaker> andythenorth: I guess those 8 lines which you have in your mockup are quite sufficient in most cases, too
21:33:35  <planetmaker> hm.. or?
21:33:44  <planetmaker> or one just gives it a few lines more
21:33:44  <andythenorth> there are some missing
21:33:44  <Zuu> Especially if a parameter GUI is made.
21:33:56  <andythenorth> well the lists could be shorter
21:33:57  <Zuu> Then you don't have to explain them in words.
21:33:59  <andythenorth> it's scalable
21:34:17  *** theholyduck [~holyduck@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
21:34:17  <andythenorth> this is only 390px high right now
21:34:28  <andythenorth> and it will scale to quite a lot less than 480px
21:34:33  <andythenorth> wide
21:34:36  <planetmaker> andythenorth: then we have still some space :-)
21:34:52  *** theholyduck [~holyduck@] has joined #openttd
21:35:04  <andythenorth> we need space
21:35:18  <andythenorth> the newgrf names in that mockup are the longest I could find
21:35:42  <planetmaker> yes, they probably are among the longest
21:35:54  <andythenorth> and there is room in the buttons for dutch etc

21:43:37  *** Wolf01 [] has quit [Quit: Once again the world is quick to bury me.]
21:45:57  <Zuu> andythenorth: Not sure if it is indented, but the online content button is missing as well as the reload button in your last mockup.
21:46:31  <andythenorth> oops
21:47:14  <Zuu> As well as the set parameters button.
21:47:25  <Zuu> and toggle pallete
21:47:49  <Zuu> Though if a parameter gui is made, the palette could be seen as a parameter and do not need a special button.
21:48:16  <andythenorth> I thought it looked nice and simple :)
21:48:22  <Zuu> Just as all AIs have the same setting in common (days to wait before the AI starts)
21:48:38  <Zuu> the same _first_ setting*
21:48:54  <Zuu> Hehe :-)
21:48:58  <andythenorth> online content is applicable across AIs, maps (heightmaps) and newgrfs?
21:49:28  <Zuu> Yep, it could be placed at the bottom but then you should probably link it to the online content dialog with all types enabled.
21:49:37  <andythenorth> hmm
21:50:07  <andythenorth> why do we still need reload?  Why doesn't reload happen when I open this tab?
21:50:14  <andythenorth> or is there a good optimisation reason?
21:50:21  <Zuu> Or make that a hidden ctrl feature and by default only show the types related to the current tab.
21:50:54  <Yexo> andythenorth: because a reload takes time, I don't want openttd to rescan all newgrfs when I open a different tab on the newgame window

21:51:37  <Zuu> You could have a reload icon similar to a browser at the top right corner of the left panel.
21:51:51  <Terkhen> good night
21:52:04  <andythenorth> Yexo: you like it because it's simple :P  I missed off most of the buttons
21:52:10  <andythenorth> good night Terkhen
21:52:15  <Zuu> night Terkhen
21:52:29  <Yexo> night Terkhen
21:52:35  <Yexo> andythenorth: maybe :)
21:53:12  *** pugi [] has quit [Quit: ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US!]
21:54:17  <andythenorth> 640px in dutch with two lists becomes challenging :)
21:54:56  * andythenorth has an idea
21:55:18  <andythenorth> current window has 'parameters' and 'set parameters'
21:55:27  <andythenorth> also 'palette' and 'toggle palette'
21:55:39  * andythenorth sees a simplification
21:56:06  <planetmaker> small arrows next to the "palette" word? ;-)
21:56:10  <andythenorth> yup
21:56:13  <andythenorth> like advanced settings
21:56:37  <andythenorth> and there must be something we can do for parameters
21:57:13  <Zuu> For parameters, take a look on how it works for NoAI. But I guess you've seen that dialog :-)
21:58:08  <Zuu> I guess you need in the grf spec to name the settings and give them upper/lower limits.
21:58:29  <andythenorth> Zuu we might need a whole load of stuff to do with strings and bit maps
21:59:05  <andythenorth> but for now I'd be happy to just have a 'set parameters' button in a convenient place
21:59:10  <Zuu> Initially we can leave the parameter guis as they are right now.
21:59:15  <andythenorth> exactly
21:59:33  <Zuu> Having them in a separate window later will probably be okay.
21:59:44  <Zuu> Or it can be integrated at a later point.
22:00:02  <Yexo> Zuu: <- newgrf spec for extra information about the parameters
22:00:16  <andythenorth> there's no layout that will fit everyone's wishes into <640px :)
22:00:25  <andythenorth> so a separate window for parameters is fine
22:00:50  <andythenorth> nothing wrong with separate windows :)  It's the flow through them that matters :o
22:00:55  <Zuu> And for reference (obviously not for you Yexo, but maybe for andy) here is how the parameters work in NoAI:
22:01:42  *** JostVice [] has left #openttd []
22:02:25  <Zuu> In this case I even think it could be good to have a separte window for settings/parameters of NewGRFs/AIs.
22:03:25  <Yexo> I agree, showing the active / available AIs in one window would be nice (same as the new newgrf gui)
22:03:50  <Zuu> Perhaps make the "make active" button double-height and add the parameters button adove/below "make inactive"?
22:04:12  *** theholyduck [~holyduck@] has quit [Quit: Forlater kanalen]
22:06:19  <Zuu> Also nice to have a consistant gui between newgrfs and ais. Though there will be some minor differences. Such as being able to add multiple AIs of the same kind. But those are still small enough that it doesn't stop the posibility to use fairly similar guis.
22:06:59  <planetmaker> good night for now

22:34:38  <andythenorth> why don't AIs have to be reloaded?
22:34:45  <andythenorth> sorry, rescanned
22:36:01  <andythenorth> hmm
22:36:05  <andythenorth> good night
22:36:28  *** Zuu [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:41:19  <Yexo> andythenorth: AIs also need to be rescanned if you put a new AI in the ai/ directory
22:41:26  <andythenorth> hmmm
22:41:33  <Yexo> it could be there is currently no button for that in the gui, but there is a commandline function IIRC
22:41:36  <andythenorth> where is the button for that?
22:42:07  * andythenorth wonders if rescan button can be deprecated
22:42:08  <Yexo> AIs are rescanned automatically after downloading some via the online content, and also every time a game is started/loaded
22:42:10  <Eddi|zuHause> the key above tab opens the command line
22:42:55  <andythenorth> the 'rescan' button seems like one button too many
22:43:02  <andythenorth> although I do actually make use of it often
22:43:30  <Yexo> why do you use it?
22:44:12  <andythenorth> hmmm not sure
22:44:39  <andythenorth> occasionally I manually add or delete a newgrf
22:44:52  <Yexo> it's a useless button imo, the only case you need it if you manually put some grf in the data directory and want to use it without restarting openttd
22:45:02  <Yexo> but then there is a console command for it
22:45:18  <andythenorth> is there one now?  Does reload_newgrfs also rescan?
22:45:29  <Yexo> isn't there?
22:45:52  <andythenorth> not sure right now
22:46:04  <Yexo> apparently not
22:46:10  <andythenorth> ho hum
22:46:38  <andythenorth>
22:47:18  <PeterT> andythenorth: looks nice
22:47:24  <PeterT> color change <3
22:47:29  <andythenorth> I would like to eliminate the rescan button, and I think the buttons for setting newgrf palette / parameters are confusing
22:47:37  <andythenorth> one button 'configure newgrf' would be better
22:47:46  <Yexo> what about adding a scrollbar for the info panel for those newgrfs with a lot of text?
22:47:58  <andythenorth> can't have three vertical scrollbars in a window
22:48:09  <andythenorth> but otherwise....yes :)
22:48:25  <Yexo> something for alberth to work on support for that :)
22:48:45  <andythenorth> how often does the palette need to be switched?
22:48:53  <andythenorth> I've never done it
22:49:31  <Yexo> only if you use base graphics with a windows palette and a newgrf with the dos palette (or the other way around)
