05:46:10  <noom> 'ello everyone
05:46:29  <noom> started playing oTTD a few days ago and had a few general questions if anyones about
05:50:47  <LaSeandre> err, ok?
05:50:48  *** robotboy [~robotboy@CPE-58-173-41-16.nxzp1.ken.bigpond.net.au] has joined #openttd
05:51:08  <noom> lols, i like to wait to see if anyones actually here before asking :p
05:51:20  <LaSeandre> whats the question?
05:51:46  <noom> well, i was happily shifting oil to a refinery today and *pop* oil well disapeared
05:51:53  <noom> then there was no oil on the map o.O
05:51:57  <noom> whats the go there?
05:52:17  <LaSeandre> hmm...
05:52:26  <LaSeandre> robotboy?
05:52:41  <noom> seems i lose resources left right and center
05:52:46  <noom> most of them are gone before the 70's
05:52:52  <noom> could it be because i have no AI ?
05:53:19  *** xiong [~xiong@netblock-72-25-106-3.dslextreme.com] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:53:31  <LaSeandre> well, no, that shouldn't really affect it.
05:53:56  <noom> i thought maybe AI filled a gap i couldnt alone
05:54:14  <noom> like maybe they're closing because i wasnt servicing them? i dont really know the mechanics at that depth
05:54:26  <LaSeandre> well, it shouldn't affect services you have running.
05:54:40  <noom> yeah this is what made me decide to ask
05:54:44  <robotboy> hello
05:54:48  <noom> just disapeared with two trains using it
05:55:13  <LaSeandre> robotboy, lil help.
05:55:29  <noom> i'm pretty slow at expanding, so i thought maybe it was just me, but my maps end up really desolate very early on
05:55:47  <noom> and i cant figure out how to find new resources either ... otherwise it owuldnt worry me
05:56:07  <LaSeandre> tbh, im not really the best person to ask, but it does seem strange
05:56:22  <noom> this last game i just gave up on i was down to 3 resource points and it was all coal...
05:56:27  <noom> boring stuff lol
05:56:31  *** Guest1220 is now known as planetmaker
05:56:55  <noom> ah well, maybe someone will scroll up :p
05:58:01  <LaSeandre> hehe

05:58:56  <robotboy> my understanding for oil is that oil wells close automatically even if they are serviced
05:59:26  <noom> hmm
05:59:27  <robotboy> ie there will be none by the end of the game but oil rigs should replace them
05:59:35  <noom> ok well, maybe you can help me with this prospecting ?
05:59:41  <noom> ooooh
05:59:41  <noom> when do rigs pop up ?
05:59:47  <noom> i keep giving up heh
05:59:52  <robotboy> but the other industry types should hang around if you service them properly
06:00:16  <noom> i struggle to get things built fast enough at this stage, i obviously still have a lot to learn
06:00:17  <robotboy> rigs popup in the 90's I think, look at the wiki
06:00:31  <noom> ooh cool, thanks man
06:00:36  <noom> i've not gone beyond the 80's yet haha
06:02:43  <noom> do you know how to get prospecting "turned on" ?
06:02:47  <noom> i dont ever see new resources
06:14:48  <planetmaker> noom: oil wells are supposed to disappear around the 1970s. Even in the original game they do
06:15:03  <noom> yeah its beginning to make sense now :p
06:15:03  <planetmaker> of course industries also disappear when they're not serviced
06:15:12  <noom> yep i noticed lol
06:16:45  *** noom_ [~chatzilla@CTPP-p-144-134-153-130.prem.tmns.net.au] has joined #openttd
06:16:52  <noom_> net died, back
06:17:11  <planetmaker> prospecting is found in the adv. settings, industry construction method
06:17:44  <planetmaker> you can also build industries where you like, but it costs you 10x as much as prospecting it anywhere
06:17:59  <noom_> but you cant "buy" resources
06:18:04  <noom_> only the industry counterparts
06:18:18  <noom_> but now that i have prospecting turned on, they should randomly re-appear right ?
06:19:57  <planetmaker> New industries should always appear. Not in a spee, but every so often
06:20:14  <planetmaker> The industry construction method only defines how YOU as player can construct industries
06:20:16  <noom_> industries yeah, but not the resouce points like ore or coal
06:20:18  <planetmaker> But then you pay
06:20:24  <planetmaker> yes, of course
06:20:33  <planetmaker> they can be funded
06:20:40  <noom_> i never had the option
06:20:46  <noom_> only stuff like factories, refineries etc
06:20:59  <noom_> but never the resources
06:21:02  <planetmaker> you then always had primary industry construction turned off
06:21:06  <noom_> yeah
06:21:11  <noom_> i only JUST found the setting after you told me :D
06:21:17  <noom_> now i've got it set to prospecting
06:21:25  <planetmaker> that doesn't influence the game's industry construction at all
06:21:26  <noom_> hey...these weird radio tower thingy's
06:21:35  <noom_> cant destroy those?
06:21:35  <planetmaker> they're there to annoy you
06:21:42  <noom_> sonova
06:21:51  <noom_> picked the worst spot haha
06:22:06  <planetmaker> you can activate in the cheat menu the magic bulldozer
06:22:23  <noom_> i'm not really one for cheating
06:22:36  <planetmaker> cheating is relative. Important is that you have fun
06:22:44  <noom_> this is true
06:22:46  <planetmaker> whom would you cheat?
06:22:50  <noom_> but i find for me cheats suck the fun right out
06:22:52  <noom_> lol
06:23:05  <planetmaker> would you use it, if it "just" were another setting?
06:23:13  <noom_> doubtful :p

06:23:19  <noom_> if there was a setting for infinite cash? nah
06:23:20  <noom_> heh
06:23:26  <noom_> maybe later when i'm just playing it as a sandbox
06:23:34  <noom_> but this early on i'm here for the authentic game experience
06:23:41  <planetmaker> cash is never an issue in these games ;-)
06:23:41  <noom_> as i've never played TTD before
06:23:48  <noom_> it is for me >.<
06:24:23  <planetmaker> good way to start: build a coal service initially. Make it a long route and not a short one
06:24:36  <noom_> yeah
06:24:38  <noom_> learnt that off the wiki
06:24:42  <noom_> easy fast good money
06:24:47  <noom_> i'm having issues though

06:24:54  <noom_> i'm on a map right now, with one coal mine
06:25:00  <noom_> it can only fill 3 carts for me :S
06:25:03  <noom_> can i increase that ?
06:25:13  <planetmaker> :-)
06:25:17  <noom_> i mean without telling my train to sit there blocking the lines :p
06:25:37  <planetmaker> do you use "full load" at the coal mine?
06:25:47  <noom_> no i dont like to as its part of a bigger line
06:25:56  <noom_> and i'm not good enough at track building to figure out how to stop the traffic jams

06:26:50  <planetmaker> the wiki has also a lot on how to build an efficient network
06:27:00  <noom_> yeah i dunno somethings just not clicking
06:27:11  <noom_> wiki is a strain on me also as i have dialup
06:27:17  <planetmaker> but the amount of industries initially on the map is one of the settings you chose when creating a new map
06:27:21  <noom_> really i need a friend RL who's mastered the art to show me hehe
06:27:23  <planetmaker> Of course it depends on the map size, too
06:27:35  <noom_> i'm trying on a 128x128 - less stuff to worry over
06:27:38  <noom_> while i'm learning
06:28:00  <noom_> the thing that's boggling me is "should i make one big line or keep them seperate"
06:28:09  <noom_> i had this track earlier, mid sections had wood going, top end had oil
06:28:19  <planetmaker> noom_: alternatively you could download a few games and have a look at them for reference. Then you don't need to be constantly online
06:28:22  <noom_> but then i had these two engines that'd haul grain and livestock down the entire track
06:28:28  <planetmaker> but 128^2 is really small
06:28:44  <planetmaker> that makes the game actually harder as you only have small distances and less revenue
06:28:49  <noom_> but i dunno it just seemed so inefficient and i had no idea how to make it better
06:28:51  <planetmaker> I like it though ;-)
06:28:59  <noom_> yeah i know, i'm just so overwhelmed right now
06:29:04  <planetmaker> Most people play around 512^2
06:29:16  <noom_> too much going on for my poor little brain :p
06:29:27  <planetmaker> it's a good size which still can be played to the end given usual computing powers

06:30:21  <noom_> i tried and failed about 10 times lol
06:30:32  <noom_> it just makes things stop working o.O
06:30:54  <noom_> *twitch*
06:30:56  <noom_> now i'm outa moneys
06:31:14  <noom_> i think you're right its the fact i'm making no money off my main coal lione
06:31:15  <noom_> line *
06:31:19  <noom_> might restart on a 512
06:31:23  <planetmaker> then cheat yourself money. And try to build a good network first ;-)
06:31:36  <noom_> tempt me not satan! :p
06:31:57  <planetmaker> that's easier than first trying to be profitable and then learning to build... as good building makes money-efficiency a side-effect
06:32:16  <planetmaker> but maybe you can even draw more loan

06:33:01  <noom_> i was about 10 minutes in its no biggy
06:33:11  <noom_> i think i need to learn junctions maybe

06:33:53  <noom_> hehe
06:35:04  <Alberth> moin planetmaker and andythenorth_
06:35:12  <andythenorth_> morning
06:35:18  <planetmaker> moin andythenorth_
06:35:24  <andythenorth_> we're all very early
06:35:41  <andythenorth_> unless you stayed up all night working on nml?
06:35:44  <planetmaker> your time zone is different ;-)
06:35:48  <Alberth> it is, there is enough light now :)
06:36:08  <planetmaker> shops are already open for an hour
06:36:10  <Alberth> more lying in bed pondering :)
06:36:12  <planetmaker> or two
06:36:20  <planetmaker> haha :-)
06:36:40  <andythenorth_> I knew consists would be more complicated than they seemed :P
06:37:00  <Alberth> and it was not about consists :D
06:37:38  <Alberth> just vehicle sets with order manipulation
06:37:45  <planetmaker> so what consisted your pondering of? :-P
06:38:19  <planetmaker> -.- too slow for the pun
06:38:50  * andythenorth_ wonders if we can just keep the current system
06:39:12  <noom_> you lot developers ?
06:39:18  <andythenorth_> not me :P
06:39:31  * andythenorth_ just draws stuff
06:39:38  <Alberth> the sets are contradictionary.  on the one hand, you do manual vehicle set creation, on the other hand, if I change an order I'd expect it to sort of jump to a different set by it self.
06:39:42  <noom_> something oTDD?
06:39:49  <noom_> TTD *
06:40:16  <Alberth> noom_: he makes FIRS HEQS and FISH
06:40:36  <planetmaker> [08:42]	* andythenorth_	just draws stuff <-- a bit of an understatement given the 10 thousands of lines of NFO ;-)
06:40:46  <andythenorth_> I drew that :P
06:40:54  <Alberth> ROFL :)
06:40:57  <andythenorth_> I craft each character by hand in pixels
06:40:59  <noom_> i dont know what any of those things are
06:41:00  <planetmaker> :-D
06:41:06  <andythenorth_> noom_: you have a question?
06:41:35  <noom_> oh no i'm just curious as to what you're talking about :)
06:41:40  <Alberth> planetmaker: compared to the number of pixels he made, 10k lines of characters is nothing :)
06:41:50  <planetmaker> Alberth: it's more 40k lines ;-)
06:42:04  <planetmaker> 25k FIRS and the others certainly 15k combined
06:42:15  <planetmaker> but yes :-)
06:42:27  * Alberth ponders how much reduction NML would give
06:42:33  <planetmaker> not too much
06:42:41  <planetmaker> if at all
06:42:58  <planetmaker> maybe at best 15 ... 20k lines for FIRS
06:43:09  <planetmaker> it's quite efficient, templated code
06:43:32  <planetmaker> though the many #define make it big ;-)
06:43:33  <andythenorth_> sugar refineries are *very* cool
06:43:56  <andythenorth_> there are at least three different styles though :o
06:44:18  <Alberth> noom_: http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=67&t=45435  and  http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=67&t=44177
06:44:36  <noom_> lol i dont click links sorry :p
06:44:56  <noom_> dialup...
06:45:22  <Alberth> you should change HEQS more often, it disappeared from the releases page :)
06:45:39  <andythenorth_> :P
06:45:52  <andythenorth_> I want to release 0.9.0 but I'm stuck
06:48:06  <noom_> i think i'm doing something wrong with signals, these tutorials i'm reading show them as always green, but mine are always red, whats the deal ?
06:48:47  <Alberth> either there are trains in the block behind it, or you are using path signals
06:48:53  <noom_> the latter
06:48:56  <noom_> is that wrong?
06:49:38  <Alberth> no, they are just a different kind of signals, I am not sure tutorials about the other signals are of any use then
06:49:53  <Alberth> (unless you want to learn about those :p )
06:49:59  <noom_> no they arnt making a lot of sense to me o.O
06:50:04  <noom_> i just want a working network :p
06:50:10  <noom_> dont care what i have to use, i'll learn
06:50:50  <noom_> reading "owens transport" tutorials and they're just confusing me with the signal talk
06:51:22  <planetmaker> on the risk of being confusing about different versions and games, next to our wiki, there's also http://uwe.s2000.at/ttdx/signal/index.php?lang=en
06:51:32  <planetmaker> you look of ottd descriptions
06:52:01  <noom_> haha
06:52:07  <noom_> i already had that page open :p
06:52:11  <planetmaker> :-)
06:52:24  <noom_> yeah this is a nice site
06:52:29  <planetmaker> wiki and that are the best ones around. It can't be explained better IMHO
06:52:29  <noom_> lots of examples
06:52:35  <planetmaker> The rest is trial and error
06:53:14  <planetmaker> http://wiki.openttdcoop.org/PublicServer:Archive <-- this is a collection of insane savegames
06:53:41  <planetmaker> just don't look at any which say "SRNW" or self-regulating network. ;-)
06:54:16  <planetmaker> That's abusing the path finders and ... not what one would usually consider "proper" building or networks
06:54:42  <noom_> i see
06:55:14  <noom_> heh
06:55:20  <Alberth> if you upload a save game somewhere, I am sure we can help
06:55:25  <noom_> "the basics" page from TTDX is basically explaining away every issue
06:55:35  <noom_> lol my problem was i'm just completely guessing here
06:55:41  <noom_> i'd never stopped to check out track design
06:55:49  <noom_> just used the wiki for the basics and dove right in :p
06:55:53  <planetmaker> read and try and try slightly different
06:56:00  <noom_> so i had no idea about sharing tracks, merging, junctions etc etc
06:56:02  <planetmaker> use the money cheat for trying out these things
06:56:10  <Alberth> an try some more :)
06:56:12  <planetmaker> then you don't have to pay attention to that
06:56:15  <noom_> i'd been doing point-to-point single track setups lol
06:56:20  <noom_> yeah i think i might now planet
06:56:24  <noom_> to learn how to do proper tracks
06:56:55  <planetmaker> it boils down to place signals and use bi-direction tracks
06:57:09  * Alberth is off to the super market for a bit
06:57:22  <planetmaker> good luck ;-)
06:58:00  <noom_> yeah i had gotten onto two-way tracks with signalling
06:58:02  <noom_> on my own
06:58:05  <noom_> and that was working
06:58:10  <noom_> but i couldnt merge any new lines into the network
06:58:16  <noom_> so my network turned into giant snakes
06:58:25  <noom_> with only two terminal stations
06:58:40  <peter1138> path signals (the default) are the simplest things ever :s
06:58:53  <noom_> lke "take this steel 10 tiles away" -> "ok but i'm gonna have to run along about 500 tiles of track to get there"

07:58:11  <ccfreak2k> dihedral sounds like something you do when you're sick.
08:00:04  <dihedral> dihedral actually describes the (positive) angle between 2 surfaces - checkout some aviation stuff ;-)
08:00:39  <ccfreak2k> I might be checking out some aviation stuff.
08:00:45  <ccfreak2k> I've become interested in ArduPilot.
08:00:57  <dihedral> a negative dihedral angel is known as an anhedral
08:01:08  <dihedral> whats that ccfreak2k
08:01:47  <ccfreak2k> http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/ardupilot-main-page
08:02:35  <dihedral> can i put that into my model rc planes? :-P
08:02:45  <ccfreak2k> Actually it's designed to be used in RC planes.
08:02:47  <ccfreak2k> So...yes.
08:02:59  <dihedral> yumm?
08:03:00  <dihedral> ^^
08:03:07  <dihedral> no more crashes \o/
08:03:20  <dihedral> do you know flightgear?
08:03:24  <ccfreak2k> Nope.
08:03:45  <dihedral> http://www.flightgear.org/
08:04:02  <dihedral> there will be a new release around dec/jan
08:04:10  <dihedral> but it's worth compiling it yourself ^^
08:04:22  <dihedral> the physics in there are awesome
08:04:41  <ccfreak2k> Speaking of flight sims, the software for ArduPilot can be used to fly a plane in xplane or one other simulator, the name of which I forgot.
08:05:01  <dihedral> then you can probably do it with FG too ^^
08:05:37  <dihedral> and if not the boys developing fg should hurry up :-D
08:06:29  <ccfreak2k> By "software" I mean you literally plug the board itself into the computer and feed it sensor/GPS data and take the output as control input.
08:13:18  <dihedral> should work ^^
08:13:44  <dihedral> FG as all sorts of possibly stuff build into it, e.g. various connection stuff
08:14:21  <dihedral> you can have another app display your position by opening the correct socket which pushes gps data
08:14:31  <dihedral> so i think the reverse should be possible
08:14:56  <dihedral> and if not, you can controll about anything with nasal scripts
08:16:06  <ccfreak2k> Oh, the other one is flightgear.
08:16:07  <ccfreak2k> http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/the-ardupilot-fg-control-for
08:17:01  <dihedral> :-P
08:17:50  <dihedral> FG and XPlane (IIRC) are both allowed certified for Simulation purposes by the FAA
08:18:16  <ccfreak2k> Xplane certainly is.
08:18:36  <ccfreak2k> I thought for sure on of their selling points is that they were the -only- one with certification.
08:20:35  <dihedral> Xplane is, iirc there was not too long ago a certification for FG's engine but i am not 100% sure
08:21:23  <dihedral> XPlane has managed to get 'out of simulator simulation hours'
08:21:31  <dihedral> by using a certain usb stick

10:52:09  <planetmaker> otherwise I couldn't compile OpenTTD
10:52:49  <planetmaker> but your error looks like an incomplete update.
10:52:56  <planetmaker> run make mrproper firs, andythenorth_
10:53:23  <andythenorth_> planetmaker: I've got 2 problems compiling ottd - one for lzma and one for missing .pcx
10:53:40  <planetmaker> did you run meanwhile mrproper?
10:54:06  <planetmaker> concerning lzma there's no way around than installing it
10:54:19  <andythenorth_> lzma I've installed with macports, but (as usual) it seems I need to do more :P
10:54:21  <andythenorth_> macports is crap
10:54:31  <Alberth> lzma-dev
10:54:45  <andythenorth_> install that, or set a path to it?
10:54:52  <planetmaker> andythenorth_: it works for me.
10:54:59  <planetmaker> liblzma
10:55:12  <planetmaker> Alberth: things are - as usual - called differently ;-)
10:55:26  <andythenorth_> thanks - installing
10:55:31  <andythenorth_> meanwhile I ran make mrproper
10:55:52  <andythenorth_> now I don't have a target for 'make bundle' :P
10:56:01  <planetmaker> of course
10:56:04  <planetmaker> ./configure && make
10:56:23  <planetmaker> why do you build bundles?
10:57:54  <andythenorth_> habit
10:59:12  <planetmaker> depends, I guess, on how you want to start it ;-) But if you build a bundle, you should - on OSX - use bundle_dmg
10:59:23  <planetmaker> just bundle is pointless
10:59:36  <planetmaker> unless you want to pass it on. And even then.
10:59:40  <andythenorth_> really?
10:59:46  <planetmaker> yes :-)
10:59:52  <planetmaker> it makes sense on other OS
11:00:05  <andythenorth_> I just use bundle which gives me an OS X package
11:00:26  <planetmaker> and bundle_dmg gives you a dmg which you can just click and be done
11:00:39  <planetmaker> if you do nothing bundle-like you can just call bin/openttd and that's it
11:01:22  <planetmaker> pointless might be too string, but... dmg is IMHO the preferred way to distribute things on OSX. And make it user-friendly
11:01:29  <planetmaker> or if you don't need that - no bundle at all
11:01:51  <planetmaker> but... doesn't really matter. If it works for you: fine :-)
11:07:07  <planetmaker> any success?

11:18:03  <planetmaker> sweet
11:19:14  <andythenorth_> bleargh
11:19:31  <andythenorth_> so if I use cb36, I have to explicitly set all properties that cb36 can affect!
11:19:33  <andythenorth_> :o
11:19:52  <andythenorth_> this is unexpected :P
11:19:58  <andythenorth_> and dumb
11:20:02  <andythenorth_> :)
11:20:13  <andythenorth_> or my code is wrong
11:20:29  <andythenorth_> anyone want to bet €1 on the answer?
11:21:00  <planetmaker> if you want to use CB36 you have to set the property which CB36 changes. Of course
11:21:30  <andythenorth_> seems I also have to set all other properties
11:21:33  <planetmaker> But... where is that unexpected? If you want to change it, you have to define it... Or do I miss something.
11:21:38  <planetmaker> That is unexpected
11:21:42  <andythenorth_> action 0 props are now ignored
11:22:03  <planetmaker> You redefine a default vehicle?
11:22:33  <andythenorth_> nope
11:22:37  <planetmaker> if you don't use a default vehicle, you have to set every property anyway
11:22:43  <planetmaker> whether you use CB36 or not
11:23:21  <andythenorth_> but this way I might as well leave out most of the action 0...
11:23:37  <planetmaker> for new vehicles you must not do that
11:23:52  * andythenorth_ thinks something wrong
11:24:04  <planetmaker> or you'd have a vehicle with everything except some undefined or zeroed
11:24:13  <planetmaker> Or I don't understand your issue
11:24:22  <planetmaker> If you define a new vehicle, you define everything
11:24:25  <planetmaker> As always
11:25:09  <andythenorth_> so I have action 0
11:25:17  <andythenorth_> defining all props correctly
11:25:31  <andythenorth_> and I have cb36 changing power
11:25:38  <planetmaker> yup
11:25:41  <andythenorth_> but all other props that cb36 can change are ow 0
11:25:46  <andythenorth_> ow / now /s
11:26:01  <planetmaker> despite you dfining them differently?
11:26:04  <planetmaker> That's... not desirable
11:26:20  <andythenorth_> must be a mistake by me
11:26:37  <andythenorth_> http://pastebin.com/NXWa6AMS
11:26:45  <andythenorth_> assume a full action 0 before that which is tested and known good

13:25:47  <Brianetta> Experience shows that it doesn't really make any difference.
13:27:46  <Terkhen> now I remember why I did not implement speed callback for road vehicles
13:28:21  <xiong> Brianetta, I'm a realist; but I'm also a progressive.
13:29:01  <Terkhen> should it affect rv property 0x08, 0x15 or a different callback for each property?

13:32:24  <andythenorth_> generally
13:32:26  <Brianetta> I'm usually here.  I only pop up when somebody summons me.
13:32:43  <Terkhen> TTDPatch does not seem to implement callback 36 for road vehicle speed
13:32:53  <Terkhen> maybe I should provide callbacks for both properties for compatibility anyways
13:33:37  <Terkhen> oh, it implements property 0x15 too so compatibility is not an issue
13:33:42  <andythenorth_> Terkhen: I have no idea which is right
13:33:46  <Brianetta> OpenTTD development does have a number of issues.  Sanctity of the status quo being one, and the lack of design being probably the biggest.
13:34:12  <Brianetta> The game evolves; survival of the best of the submitted patches.
13:34:18  <Brianetta> It's not design-led.
13:34:24  <andythenorth_> no it's like PHP
13:34:34  <planetmaker> Brianetta: then post some sensible stuff in the vision for OpenTTD 2.0
13:34:45  <Brianetta> planetmaker: How would that be useful?
13:34:47  <planetmaker> OpenTTD's goal for 1.0 was to have a completely free TTD
13:34:52  <planetmaker> that is well-achieved
13:35:04  <Terkhen> andythenorth_: I guess that the "right" way is to implement both callbacks and let them have the same priorities that the properties have
13:35:14  <Terkhen> I just doubt that it is useful at all
13:35:16  <Brianetta> That just defines the requirements for a given number.
13:35:29  <planetmaker> Brianetta: you lament about a lack of design or vision or whatever. And then you ask why the same is sensible or useful?
13:35:39  <Brianetta> That's not design
13:35:44  <Brianetta> That's a version number definition
13:35:57  <Brianetta> The closest thing this game has to any sort of design document is the roadmap

13:37:43  <Brianetta> Eddi|zuHause: Exactly
13:37:56  <planetmaker> The only way I can understand you currently is that you fail to see your ideas implemented - and call that lack of design
13:37:56  <Brianetta> yet it's still the closest thing to a design document of any sort
13:38:14  <Brianetta> planetmaker: No; my ideas has nothing to do with my argument
13:38:40  <planetmaker> Then please define what you call 'design' in this context
13:38:41  <Brianetta> I've done my fair share of testing, bug reporting etc
13:38:47  <planetmaker> I know that
13:39:03  <planetmaker> I started playing on your servers. Was my first MP OpenTTD ever
13:39:04  <Eddi|zuHause> you are right, development is not design-driven. but given the nature of the project, it doesn't need to be and it would probably do more harm than good if it were
13:39:08  <Brianetta> pre version 0.5 I was already getting disappointed at the lack of any clear design
13:39:31  <planetmaker> again: what is 'design' for you in this context
13:39:38  <Eddi|zuHause> design-driven development can only work if you have paid developers who you can tell what they should do
13:39:46  <Brianetta> Well, you remember autopilot?
13:39:52  <planetmaker> we use it, yes
13:39:53  <Brianetta> Design, in this case, is a ring binder
13:39:57  <Eddi|zuHause> it just doesn't work with open source
13:40:02  <andythenorth_> Eddi|zuHause: it can
13:40:08  <Brianetta> although it oculd have been docs online
13:40:09  <andythenorth_> but not with this kind of open source

13:41:13  <xiong> Brianetta, I agree with you theoretically. I plan before I build; I plan a lot before I build at all. That's what this is: http://i53.tinypic.com/290xzqq.png
13:41:16  <Eddi|zuHause> right, but i see no need for it to be more than a hobby project
13:41:40  <planetmaker> not a hobby project would imply someone would be willing to pay for it
13:41:48  <planetmaker> I don't see that happening
13:42:06  <xiong> When I write code, I plan ahead, too. I write design goals first, then I write tests, then I write code to pass the tests. I document everything thoroughly; I comment heavily.
13:42:14  * andythenorth_ is confused
13:42:16  <planetmaker> besides I've still not seen what here is lacking design
13:42:23  <andythenorth_> it *is* a hobby project yes / no?
13:42:25  <andythenorth_> that's the point?
13:42:31  <Brianetta> Thing is, it's somebody else's hobby.  Contributing to it is about as fulfilling as helping somebody else rebuild their car.  It's their car, not mine, and I'll never feel like I have a stake.
13:42:46  <planetmaker> is it?
13:42:53  <Brianetta> Of course.
13:42:59  * planetmaker shrugs
13:43:01  <xiong> But the plan fact is that OTTD is a 'jest grew' project. Impossible to guide development in any direction.
13:43:07  <planetmaker> then it's no fun.
13:43:42  * planetmaker doesn't nor didn't feel that way. As people usually listen(ed) to arguments
13:43:46  <Brianetta> Simutrans was designed.  It's looking like a better game, atm.

13:45:20  <andythenorth_> (not from me)
13:45:22  <abb-maz> okay

13:47:34  <xiong> planetmaker, You do not have room in this community for radical innovation of the sort that requires a lot of current stuff to be thrown out. New stuff can be added, incrementally; and there's always the possibility that someone will put in a great deal of effort on his own, in some direction.

13:47:42  <Brianetta> I'll happily stick my thoughts on the wiki if asked (and I was asked).
13:48:12  <Brianetta> xiong: There are plenty of big patches that cost loads of hard work which were never included.
13:48:12  <xiong> But there's no overall design or set of guiding principles. I'm not quite sure it's a big deal.
13:48:20  <andythenorth_> there are principles
13:48:27  <andythenorth_> 1. don't break network play
13:48:41  <andythenorth_> I think that's about it actually :P
13:48:47  <xiong> Yes.
13:49:02  <planetmaker> 2. try to limit the extend that existing stuff is broken
13:49:19  <andythenorth_> 3. try not to suck
13:49:29  <Brianetta> 4. Try not to introduce change that will confuse and frighten the old timers.
13:49:35  <xiong> Dev has proceeded mostly by seeing a more or less immediately available goal and moving toward it.
13:50:00  <Brianetta> even if that impedes the possibility of other features in the future
13:50:06  <planetmaker> if immediately available is something like two years horizon... maybe
13:50:17  <Brianetta> Timetables, for example
13:50:32  <Brianetta> They don't need to happen because, "Oh, we have those already"
13:50:45  <Brianetta> well, there's a feature with that name, sure
13:50:45  <planetmaker> ... whatever
13:50:45  <xiong> It's formless expansion. The thing about this that upsets Platonists, Brianetta, such as you and I, is that this kind of unstructured growth often works, more or less.
13:50:56  <Eddi|zuHause> Brianetta: i think you're wrong there...
13:51:00  <Brianetta> So does evolution
13:51:07  <Brianetta> but it doesn't bring the best
13:51:10  <Brianetta> just the least worst
13:51:28  <planetmaker> that's a statement which is not true
13:51:36  <Brianetta> which part of it?
13:51:49  <planetmaker> "evolution brings the least worst"
13:51:56  <Brianetta> then you don't understand it
13:52:01  *** Yexo [~Yexo@62.140.137.113] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:52:03  <xiong> Evolution doesn't bring the best or the least worst. It brings what it brings.
13:52:07  <andythenorth_> evolution is not a proper scientific theory, so be careful which claims you make :P
13:52:08  <planetmaker> I do understand quite well how evolution works
13:52:22  <Brianetta> The fittest survive, but aren't necessarily the best solution
13:52:23  <planetmaker> in a darwinistic sense
13:52:30  <xiong> It's not really survival of the fittest; it's survival of what survives.
13:52:35  <planetmaker> I don't say it brings the best possible
13:52:39  <planetmaker> But so doesn't design
13:52:42  <planetmaker> Most often
13:52:42  <Brianetta> They're simply better than the competition, and adequate for reproduction.
13:53:08  <planetmaker> And often enough evolution brings the besto possible given the available ressources
13:53:17  <Brianetta> not the best
13:53:20  <Brianetta> we could design better
13:53:25  <planetmaker> sure
13:53:27  <Brianetta> but that stuff can't evolve
13:53:30  <planetmaker> then design me an eye
13:53:33  <xiong> What is the best? How would you know it, if you saw it?
13:53:47  <Brianetta> I have a camera here that functions better than a human eye in most respects
13:53:50  <Hirundo> the fact that it can't evolve, makes that it's not 'better'
13:53:56  <planetmaker> Brianetta: that's laughable
13:54:01  * Brianetta shrugs
13:54:03  <Brianetta> then laugh
13:54:14  * andythenorth_ somewhat regrets starting this, as no useful code is being written :(
13:54:14  <xiong> Seriously!
13:54:17  <xiong> What is the best? How would you know it, if you saw it?
13:54:32  <Brianetta> having a dead spot on the retina, right next to the maccula, would be improved by nut using an inside out retina.
13:54:41  <Brianetta> Then we wouldn't have problems with them detaching, either
13:54:53  <Brianetta> but that's an improvement that will never be come about by evolution
13:55:02  <xiong> I did not say, How would you know something that was not the best? I said, How would you know the best?
13:55:04  <Brianetta> s/nut/not/
13:55:11  <Hirundo> Now 'design' that, so it can grow from a single cell
13:55:23  <Brianetta> xiong: We don't need to know it, but we should at least strive for it
13:56:12  <Hirundo> If you determine 'quality of design' by our human standards, you'd certainly not be able to determine what is 'best' without horrible mistakes
13:56:13  <xiong> How can you strive for the best if you don't know what it is? How do you know when to stop, when moving in a given direction, if you don't know when you've arrived at the optimum?
13:56:14  <Brianetta> Hirundo: I am not a cytobiologist.  I have friends that might know where they could start, but I think you know as well as I do that technology isn't that good yet, and that this point has nothing to do with the argument.
13:56:19  <andythenorth_> comparing OTTD development to darwinian evolution is a bollocks argument anyway
13:56:27  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth_: that should teach you to not wake a sleeping Brianetta :p

13:56:36  <andythenorth_> ottd does not evolve in a competitive environment over 10s of thousands of generations
13:56:44  <Brianetta> Sure it does
13:56:48  <Brianetta> well, its patches do
13:57:21  <xiong> andythenorth_, No, disagree, sorry. It's not biological but it is distributed development without strong central control.
13:57:25  <Eddi|zuHause> incremental development and evolution are not the same thing
13:57:48  <Brianetta> It's only incremental in terms of commits to trunk
13:58:07  <Brianetta> patches are being developed all the time, many of them compete to serve the same function.  Most never make it.
13:58:21  <andythenorth_> it's got nothing to do with the eye as a functional mechanism for living organisms to boost survival / reproductive fitness chances

I've written a list of Pennsylvania Town Names and turned it into a .grf but I can't figure out how to distribute it. And I'm trying to design bigger, schematic rail signals but can't interest anyone in it.
14:02:11  <Brianetta> Zoom range>

14:02:50  <xiong> On?
14:02:58  <planetmaker> and has such excellent auto-gain
14:03:05  <Brianetta> And I can measure the diffraction of my camera's lens at small apertures
14:03:18  <planetmaker> you need to change lenses, though
14:03:41  <Brianetta> You can't change lenses with a human eye, or zoom the one it has

14:16:07  <xiong> Brianetta, Well, I have terrible trouble. I imagine other old guys with poor eyesight, esp. new to the game, have similar troubles. It's not so bad if you just signal everything, everywhere with 1-path sigs. But complicated pre-signal layouts are just too hard for me to visualize.
14:16:51  <xiong> So, here it is: I can design the graphics but I don't have the skill to build them into a .grf; others have the skill but lack the inclination.
14:17:20  <Eddi|zuHause> coding signal graphics is trivial
14:17:32  <Eddi|zuHause> but you don't hear me, so i can't help you
14:18:13  <xiong> The point being, I guess, that it's not enough to have an idea, good or not. This is a DIY thing. You say you have ideas; well, great. Are you asking for help? So am I.
14:18:41  <Alberth> qed :)
14:18:59  <xiong> I suspect I can ask all day but bigsig will never get out until I have the time and desire to learn how to do it all by myself.
14:19:28  <xiong> Considering that I have plenty of work to do, completely unrelated to OTTD, that time may be never.
14:19:30  <Alberth> that holds pretty much for everything that reaches realization
14:19:52  <xiong> Alberth, Disagree. In some circles, mutual support is taken for granted.

14:20:21  <planetmaker> I got so many ponies already...

14:22:13  <Brianetta> it's not like I've done nothing around here
14:22:16  <planetmaker> xiong: the point with your newgrfs is: you only show teasers. you didn't produce any usable sprites
14:22:18  <Brianetta> it's just that I gave up
14:22:38  <planetmaker> as long as you don't do that no one even can help you with the best of intentions

14:23:06  <Alberth> xiong: we care very little for tales, but much more for solid work
14:23:34  <xiong> Way back in the Bad Old Days, I was a member of the L5 Society. We had meetings, we talked endlessly; but we did very little. A common complaint was, "We lack leadership." Gary used to say, "We have plenty of leadership. We don't have enough followership."
14:23:41  * planetmaker picks another onion
14:23:44  <xiong> Too bad. I like.
14:24:10  <xiong> planetmaker, Alberth, I'm sorry if you don't respect the work I've already put in.
14:25:01  <xiong> You want "a usable set of sprites"? Then you need to say that you will do something with them; you need to be willing to take time to help me with the technical requirements. I've done quite a bit blind, on spec, and got nothing like support.
14:25:37  <planetmaker> xiong: *everyone* who wants to help you needs those sprites. So you may as well produce them

14:35:16  <xiong> Right.

14:37:07  <planetmaker> which we can provide?
14:37:13  <planetmaker> at this point of your "project"

14:38:23  <xiong> I don't feel comfortable discussing the project here, at all, especially in the face of lack of interest. I raised the topic solely as an object lesson to Brianetta.

14:41:26  <Alberth> coding by an experienced NFO coder will take about that much time, if not less
14:41:27  <xiong> It would probably take more than 10 minutes to explain it to you. I would say why, and you would ask why again, and so forth.
14:41:47  <xiong> Why should I inflict this on anyone?
14:42:24  <xiong> I wrote up a good thread. The thing is out there. Perhaps it will attract interest. Perhaps I'll come back to it in a year or 5. I dunno.
14:42:29  <Alberth> I am not the person you want for that job, but if you make the project to that point, I am sure someone can put some nfo code around it
14:42:38  <xiong> I'm not.
14:43:06  <xiong> Also, 'to that point' is hotly contested.
14:43:42  <xiong> I don't know what 'that point' is and it will take considerable time to get 'that point' across to me, because I ask questions.
14:43:44  <planetmaker> xiong: see: the fact that this discussion exists makes me quite sceptical that there even if I should say - boah, great, I want that and I'll see what I can do - (and I did say that already!) - it will ever see any work from you
14:44:03  <xiong> You are mistrustful.
14:44:07  <planetmaker> As such I won't at any point repeat any commitment statement
14:44:21  <Alberth> 'that point' is a set of actually usable signal sprites in a correct image format, it is as simple as that
14:44:22  <planetmaker> my trust was so far disappointed by you on all levels
14:44:24  <xiong> I showed work of mine. I don't recall anyone paying much attention.
14:44:43  <xiong> I am mistrustful.
14:44:56  <planetmaker> your problem
14:45:03  <xiong> I worked up Pennsy Town Names and you have yet to do anything with it.
14:45:28  <xiong> Well, that's my point. You don't trust me; I don't trust you. There it is.
14:45:37  <Alberth> didn't you refuse to publish them properly?
14:45:47  <xiong> Alberth, I don't know how!
14:45:55  <planetmaker> they're done. And you fail to release them. And more important: I didn't receive anything from you. So I can say you lie that I *could* have done anything at all
14:46:12  <xiong> I emailed you, as you suggested.
14:46:39  <planetmaker> never received anything. Besides I told you: it's fine as is. Just upload it
14:46:40  <Alberth> post at the forum, get an account at bananas, add them there
14:47:09  <planetmaker> Alberth: that newgrf is even finished. He just needs a buddy to upload it *somewhere*
14:47:19  <xiong> Alberth, this is a question of planetmaker's ability to take over another person's work.
14:47:40  <planetmaker> I'm not interestend in the town names myself much.
14:47:43  <Alberth> xiong: in my view, an author himself should release his own work
14:48:02  <planetmaker> Besides the work is done. So I don't see where I have to be involved. AND I DIDN'T RECEIVE ANYTHING
14:48:04  <xiong> There's more to be done; I don't know exactly what. Part of it is the license issue. But really, at this point, I just want to see you pick up anything where I leave off.
14:48:11  <Alberth> I don't see why anyone else would have to do that
14:48:18  <xiong> Alberth, I consider the authorship shared.
14:48:35  <xiong> There's no 'have to do' here.
14:48:37  <Alberth> you heard pm, he is not interested in shared authorship
14:48:56  <xiong> Ah, but then he raised an objection to my licensing intent.
14:49:06  <Alberth> ie it was a gift of time to you to finish the set
14:49:23  <xiong> planetmaker, Would it make any difference if I tried to email you again?
14:50:06  <xiong> Alberth, Look, I don't see what you're trying to do here. Do you even want to know every bloody detail?
14:50:22  <Alberth> no, I don't
14:50:27  <xiong> I mean, really. I don't see the point of whipping this up into a froth.
14:50:35  <xiong> So, why put in?
14:51:59  <xiong> planetmaker, I email you. You say you didn't get. Should I email you again?
14:52:14  <xiong> Would you like to offer an email addy?
14:52:26  <planetmaker> xiong: I consider that newgrf 100% your work. Not mine
14:52:31  <planetmaker> I'm not a newgrf publisher
14:53:14  <xiong> Fine. But then I will remain convinced that it will be a bad bet for me to invest work in a project, hoping you will step in and help. Do you see that?
14:53:33  <xiong> You are not willing to commit. I am.
14:53:51  <xiong> But I'm not willing to go further on spec, without anyone else committed.
14:55:19  <xiong> I've already committed heavily to bigsig. I've written in forum, I've drawn sketches, and I've formally committed to handling the graphics. I'm not shy. Nobody else is willing to say even one line: 'Yeah, I'm in.' Silly for me to continue. \
14:55:41  <planetmaker> xiong: the issue I have with _your_ town names is two: a) I would feel like betrying you for half the fruits of your work and b) it would do you good to be able to publish yourself, so I don't want to become your publishing slave for the future to come
14:55:58  <xiong> My point exactly.
14:56:45  <planetmaker> AND: this is definitely not a work you cannot do yourself. So you do not NEED help
14:56:50  <xiong> Bigsig will come out when I learn enough to bring it out myself. I understand this.
14:56:57  <planetmaker> So I don't see where you get the 'I get no help and support'
14:57:13  <planetmaker> I walked you through writing the newgrf happily. But it's your work. Not mine
14:57:25  <planetmaker> I see my task in helping you grow accustomed to how things work
14:57:38  <xiong> I didn't say that at all. I appreciate the help you've already given. But you're not reliable about it, that's all. Nor do you need to be; this isn't $work.
14:57:39  <planetmaker> Not mine in co-sharing every project you might ever take a fancy in
14:58:05  <xiong> What do you want?
14:58:22  <xiong> I don't blame you for anything. I don't demand anything from you.
14:59:15  <xiong> I don't go around saying you are a bad person. I just say, I can't trust you to finish my work. You say, you don't want to finish my work. So, I think we *agree* here.
14:59:50  <xiong> Nobody else says, Yes, I want to work with you. That's okay too. We're free.
15:01:44  <planetmaker> you constantly demand 'commitment'
15:02:10  <planetmaker> and you demand it without having produce any work except than illustrating an _idea_
15:02:19  <planetmaker> (talking of bigsig)
15:02:40  <planetmaker> concerning the town names: where do you need commitment? It's finished. You just need to present your work to the community
15:02:45  <planetmaker> That's not my role
15:03:51  <planetmaker> I happily took your hand to the point where that grf is. And I'm severly disappointed that you fail to make your work available to the community
15:04:00  <planetmaker> More so as it means you wasted my time
15:04:22  <planetmaker> As I consider my task to help the community. But my help was wasted in that sense. So far
15:04:44  <xiong> planetmaker, You see that forum thread? Do you think no time, no work went into what I did? It's all shite? Fine; you're entitled. But if you don't respect that, then I don't have any reason to expect you'll respect anything else I do.

15:05:44  <planetmaker> I do think you put thought into that. But you fail to do follow-up work which can only be done by you
15:06:32  <planetmaker> that's got nothing to do with missing respect
15:06:40  <xiong> If you begin with the presumption that, after my having written those posts and committed in the strongest possible language to completing the graphics -- to working on the project to the limit of my ability -- that I will not do as I say, then you are deeply mistrustful person.
15:07:18  <xiong> I say, it is now time for at least one other person to join the project. You say, you don't want in. That's fine. Nobody is twisting your arm, dude.
15:07:21  <planetmaker> I've no trust issue
15:07:43  <planetmaker> And it's not yet time any ohter person can help you for that bigsig project
15:07:49  <xiong> I would retract the point if I were convinced otherwise.
15:08:00  <xiong> Man!
15:08:01  <planetmaker> Showing that you fail to publish the townnames kinda enforces my scepticism,
15:08:29  <planetmaker> xiong: I've participated in a number of newgrf projects. So I think I know how it can work
15:08:38  <xiong> With penntowns.grf, it is now your turn. It's your turn because I stopped. That's how it goes.
15:08:39  <planetmaker> And a pre-condition is: *some* sprites existing
15:08:59  <planetmaker> I've no stake in your townnames. You just made me author without asking for it
15:09:05  <xiong> If you don't pick up where I left off, then the project dies. That's how it goes.
15:09:16  <xiong> No, Sir. You wrote code into it.
15:09:32  <xiong> I copied it right out of the pastebin. I'm careful about this sort of thing.
15:09:51  <lugo> planetmaker, it's your fault helping him, don't you see?
15:10:03  <planetmaker> lugo: sadly, yes
15:10:19  <planetmaker> I fail to see why I need to publish his work. I won't do such baby-sitting. Simple
15:10:22  <xiong> Not fault, lugo. He helped; I appreciate it.
15:10:42  <planetmaker> xiong: exactly. helped. But it is your project and responsibility. Not mine
15:10:53  <XeryusTC> xiong: if it's your project then you're responsible for keeping it alive, not pm
15:10:55  <planetmaker> there's nothing left to do
15:11:05  <xiong> You don't consider that you have any need to involve yourself further. Okay. But then, I will assume that the next time I get stuck, you will also say, 'Not my problem'. That's all.
15:12:39  <xiong> I think I've explained myself in the same or different words at least 5 times now. Mine is an *opinion*; it's not a technical issue or matter of fact. I can't be argued out of it because it's an opinion, my viewpoint.
15:12:51  <XeryusTC> This is not primary school, if you get stuck you can ask for help but that is the end of the line whether you like it or not...
15:13:42  <xiong> Up to this point, I thought I might not have made myself clear. I think I've done this, now. I'm just not going to go on with it. I'm sorry. I'm not going to say anything more about this until someone says something new.
15:14:23  <__ln__> something new
15:14:28  <xiong> XeryusTC, I don't mean to be rude but you are going over old ground. If you want in on bigsig, great. Sign up. Otherwise, hey, let's be friends.
15:16:59  <Alberth> __ln__: do you still have the ", that" patch? Perhaps it can be split into 'trivially correct' and 'others'.
15:17:07  <planetmaker> xiong: telling us here that writing a posting along the lines of "here's my town name newgrf" being beyond your ability and you being stuck there... well. Interesting
15:17:24  <XeryusTC> Not a soul on the internet is interested in helping unless you have something to show, get used to it ;)
15:18:16  <planetmaker> it's incredible and implausible at best given your lengthy definition postings relating to bigsig. So the ball is all in your part of the playground
15:18:45  <planetmaker> besides: I never played on the townname game. It's not my work.
15:18:49  <planetmaker> It's not mine
15:18:52  <xiong> planetmaker, Do you just want to have the last word? Or do you understand me clearly?
15:19:00  <planetmaker> and meanwhile: please remove my authorship there
15:19:01  * Alberth gives planetmaker another union
15:19:59  <planetmaker> xiong: honestly I don't understand you. yes
15:20:49  <planetmaker> "another union"?
15:20:56  <xiong> Okay. Then I will explain, just one more time. I'll ask you to let me finish. There are 3 distinct issues related to your involvement with penntowns.grf. They are not all coupled.
15:21:11  <planetmaker> a) I'm not involved
15:21:18  <xiong> 1) Like it or not, you contributed actual code to the .grf. You can disclaim responsibility, of course.
15:21:22  <planetmaker> b) I merely provided some advice
15:21:25  <__ln__> Alberth: yes, here it is: http://users.utu.fi/lanurm/ottd/comma-that-etc.diff
15:21:48  <planetmaker> xiong: I didn't. The other townname newgrfs are not written by me
15:21:59  <Alberth> planetmaker: oh, it's spelled "onion". sorry
15:22:10  <planetmaker> :-)
15:22:23  <xiong> You're not going to let me finish. You said you didn't understand. Should I have asked if you *wanted* me to explain?
15:22:28  <planetmaker> I'm currently rather cutting leeks
15:22:55  <Alberth> don't have those :(
15:23:12  * planetmaker does :-) They're part of French Cheese soup
15:23:48  <Alberth> yummy
15:23:56  <XeryusTC> xiong: you plagiarising someone's code is not contribution, even if the code was deliberately given to show how to do something, that is called an example

15:25:01  <Alberth> __ln__: is such a split of any use, or shall I simply go through all of them?
15:25:14  <xiong> I'm going to post to forum. I think it's silly but I'm just not going to say another word about this in chat. It's absurd -- it was absurd a week ago.
15:26:02  <Alberth> __ln__: (but after dinner :) )
15:26:49  <__ln__> Alberth: I think the ", that" things are trivial.. so no need to split.  the "etc" in the patch name suggests there's something else fixed too, but can't remember what it was.

16:47:04  <Terkhen> hi andythenorth_
16:47:11  <Terkhen> @commit 21058
16:47:12  <DorpsGek> Terkhen: Commit by terkhen :: r21058 /trunk/src (4 files) (2010-10-30 14:31:49 UTC)
16:47:13  <DorpsGek> Terkhen: -Feature [NewGRF]: Add CB36 support for road vehicle properties 0x13 (Power), 0x14 (Weight) and 0x18 (Tractive effort).
16:47:19  <andythenorth_> nice :)
16:47:35  <Terkhen> speed will take more time, as I'll have to unify a bit of code between trains and road vehicles first
16:47:36  <andythenorth_> I'll make proper use of that in HEQS
16:47:50  <andythenorth_> if you get speed done, I can release HEQS 0.9.0 :)
16:47:58  <andythenorth_> maybe we release them together :o
16:48:29  <andythenorth_> Alberth: sorry about that earlier :P
16:49:27  <Alberth> np, we were sort of finished, weren't we?
16:49:36  <Terkhen> great, that would be perfect for testing if I did any mistakes while implementing the callbacks
16:50:39  <andythenorth_> Alberth: how is the new TV?
16:50:50  <Alberth> it works :)
16:51:06  <Alberth> will try more tomorrow morning :)
16:52:34  <andythenorth_> Alberth: I wonder if there should just be 'groups'.  All trains in them are just identical clones of each other
16:52:37  <andythenorth_> seems simplest
16:52:56  <Alberth> __ln__: src/station_cmd.cpp  hunk @@ -2139,7 +2139,7 @@    the original seems better
16:52:58  <andythenorth_> everything identical - orders, consist, anything else that can be set
16:53:23  <andythenorth_> players don't get to move vehicles between groups.
16:53:31  <andythenorth_> they can add another train to the group, or trash them
16:54:14  <Alberth> that seems a simple enough approach to work.
16:54:35  <andythenorth_> if one train in the group is changed, all change to match it
16:55:16  <Alberth> that'll be chaos for the unsuspecting player :)
16:56:03  <__ln__> Alberth: i agree if the expression after comma is "that is" (i.e.). but is it.
16:56:09  <andythenorth_> well any system involving magic has the chaos problem
16:57:31  <Alberth> __ln__: I see it as a further explanation (badly worded, so I'll fix that)
16:57:40  *** XeryusTC [~AndChat@188.88.207.141] has joined #openttd
16:58:08  <andythenorth_> basically remove existing concept of individual vehicles - each with orders and own consist etc
16:58:15  <andythenorth_> replace with 'lines' or 'services'
16:58:31  <andythenorth_> you don't manage individual vehicles.  You just + / - vehicles to the group
16:58:50  <andythenorth_> the window showing individual vehicles could be removed
16:59:04  <andythenorth_> could just show the groups - and the count of vehicles in each, and the total profit (loss)
17:00:54  <andythenorth_> no need for autoreplace either
17:01:19  <andythenorth_> might be better if vehicles could just change though - without going to depot
17:01:30  <andythenorth_> and ideally vehicles could be created / trashed without needing a depot
17:02:11  <Alberth> No can do. I will not introduce a new way of playing at the cost of discarding the current one. (Changes are discussable, throwing it all away not, imho, unless you have VERY convincing arguments.)
17:03:15  <Alberth> I think you are refering to a different tycoon game
17:03:31  <andythenorth_> it does work in the other game
17:03:43  <__ln__> andythenorth_: say "XML", it sounds very convincing
17:03:45  <andythenorth_> trains are created at the first station in their order list, and can be retired at any time
17:04:28  <andythenorth_> how about a scripting language for orders?
17:04:49  <andythenorth_> which could also manipulate all the mutable properties of a vehicle?
17:05:00  <andythenorth_> scripting language for vehicles /s
17:05:19  <andythenorth_> that way vehicles become autonomous agents on the network
17:05:37  <andythenorth_> :o what if the language allowed them to communicate :o
17:05:46  <Alberth> __ln__: /* The noise level is the noise from the airport and reduce it to account for the distance to the town center. */  <-- I just rewrote it :)
17:06:50  <Alberth> andythenorth_: scripting is a good way to get desyncs all over the place in a MP game.
17:06:54  <Eddi|zuHause> i really didn't like the railroad tycoon kind of train handling
17:07:19  <__ln__> Alberth: good. indeed my patch did neven attempt to rephrase things even when it could have been better.
17:07:21  <andythenorth_> what else could we do that's completely different?
17:08:11  <blathijs> We could make the game 3D rendered!
17:08:19  <andythenorth_> doesn't affect groups much :P
17:08:26  <andythenorth_> we could drive 1 train each
17:08:29  <andythenorth_> in multiplayer
17:08:45  <andythenorth_> why invent consists?
17:08:53  <michi_cc> andythenorth_: Can you test HEQS with http://www.icosahedron.de/openttd/patches/accel.patch ? The patch tries to make acceleration "slower", but it seems to me that HEQS generally has rather low power and TE values and I'm not totally sure how the vehicles should behave :)
17:09:04  <andythenorth_> what's good enough about current auto-replace?
17:09:39  <andythenorth_> or not good enough?
17:10:21  <Alberth> good: it replaces engines.   not good enough: some players want to change more
17:10:44  <andythenorth_> such as....?
17:11:01  <andythenorth_> michi_cc: can't test tonight, but remind me tomorrow....
17:11:22  <Alberth> add wagons is popular, I believe
17:12:43  <andythenorth_> so current auto-replace is simple
17:12:58  <andythenorth_> for x in list, transform x to y

17:14:20  <andythenorth_> matching to a consist is different...
17:17:19  <andythenorth_> but maybe not much more complicated
17:17:39  <andythenorth_> do consists preserve exact order, or just count of each vehicle?
17:17:46  <andythenorth_> vehicle / wagon type /s
17:18:50  <Alberth> I am not sure current autoreplace is so simple. The first time I tried it, it was quite tricky to get it working.
17:19:27  <Alberth> with consist-changing, hopefully you see more clearly what change you are defining
17:20:07  <Alberth> as for order preservation, what if it stores the change that you enter?
17:20:16  <andythenorth_> current autoreplace has usability problems granted
17:21:02  <andythenorth_> Alberth: seems to me one key issue is: - are there 'consists' as separate entities, or is just a group of trains trying to match each other?
17:23:14  <Alberth> don't understand that, but there is all kind of data seperate for each train (eg loaded cargo, age) how can that be one consist?
17:23:43  *** davis [~b@p5B28ADBF.dip.t-dialin.net] has joined #openttd
17:24:49  <andythenorth_> ok, so - literally - is there some list in memory somewhere of a platonic consist that the train is trying to match to?
17:24:55  <andythenorth_> I think there has to be, I can't see a workable alternative
17:25:06  <Alberth> I think so too
17:25:16  *** Singaporekid [~notme@cm134.epsilon84.maxonline.com.sg] has quit []
17:25:52  <andythenorth_> so there has to be a way to manage consists
17:26:44  <Alberth> you need to be able to see which one there are, make new ones, and/or delete ones.
17:27:04  <andythenorth_> what if current groups window was adjusted
17:27:05  <Alberth> sort of replace window
17:27:09  <andythenorth_> groups become 'managed consists'
17:27:25  * Alberth would like that
17:27:28  <andythenorth_> moving a train into a group means it will try and change it's consist
17:27:31  <andythenorth_> :o
17:27:35  * andythenorth_ remembers railtypes
17:27:59  <Alberth> perhaps it is better if you don't :)
17:27:59  <andythenorth_> a train might not be able to match to a consist due to incompatible railtypes...
17:28:52  <andythenorth_> how does autoreplace handle that?
17:29:25  <Alberth> __ln__: http://codepad.org/wMjfQMNL
17:29:40  <Alberth> s/how // ?
17:30:32  <__ln__> looks good
17:31:32  <andythenorth_> Alberth: current groups really have nothing to do with *setting* orders, right?
17:32:17  <Alberth> not that I am aware of
17:32:27  <andythenorth_> good :)
17:32:41  *** zachanima [~zach@2506ds3-od.0.fullrate.dk] has joined #openttd
17:32:42  <andythenorth_> perhaps this is a good place to start then
17:33:31  <andythenorth_> consists are managed by an updated groups / vehicle list window
17:33:54  <andythenorth_> forget my vehicle sets idea
17:34:26  <andythenorth_> vehicles can only have one consist (group)
17:34:51  <Alberth> unless they have multiple personalities :p
17:34:54  <andythenorth_> vehicles can be 'unmanaged'
17:35:07  <andythenorth_> otherwise the list gets way too long
17:35:42  *** Mazur [~mazur@53551A99.cm-6-6a.dynamic.ziggo.nl] has joined #openttd
17:36:15  <andythenorth_> we preserve some kind of autoreplace for both consists and unmanaged vehicles
17:37:14  <andythenorth_> this is all decoupled entirely from orders
17:37:29  <andythenorth_> the only orders connection is current 'add vehicles with shared orders' option for a group
17:37:53  <Alberth> out of the order mess, but hooked firmly in the aut-re{new,place} mess :)
17:38:03  <andythenorth_> at least only one mess :P
17:38:14  <andythenorth_> I don't think orders are too broken
17:38:24  <andythenorth_> autoreplace is both awesome, and massively broken :P
17:39:11  * andythenorth_ drinks wine past its best
17:39:35  <Alberth> ah that explains the "we" part :p
17:40:20  <andythenorth_> ach, I could learn C++
17:40:48  <andythenorth_> but only to change one line at a time
17:40:55  <andythenorth_> ask me to write a new function and I'm stuffed
17:41:01  <andythenorth_> too much stuff to know about
17:41:39  <Alberth> so instead you learned to speak cbs :)
17:42:16  <Alberth> hmm, why does the compiler always needs to re-compile every file?

17:43:51  <Xaroth> and grolshish?
17:43:55  <davis> haha
17:43:56  <Xaroth> Alberth: they did?
17:44:02  <davis> well .. Alberth , dutch.
17:44:14  <Xaroth> damn and I thought our government was going down, but apparently we're already down
17:44:26  <davis> they also acknowledged the use of pot.
17:44:33  <Xaroth> that's a brilliant move
17:44:37  <davis> which is probably in some sort of connection
17:44:42  <Alberth> Xaroth: there are always deeper downs than you can imagine
17:45:01  <Xaroth> pot usage in countries where there are strict laws, like the US and the UK have a faaar higher drug use rate
17:45:08  <Xaroth> Alberth: true
17:45:46  <davis> Xaroth i agree , legalizing it in Holland isn't all bad imho
17:46:04  <Xaroth> last time i brought brits to amsterdam they spent half a day in coffee shops
17:46:13  <davis> haha
17:46:13  <Xaroth> and the dutchies were like 'right, you've seen the past 12, MOVE ALONG'
17:46:30  <Xaroth> they spent ~100 euros on weed
17:46:35  <Xaroth> smoked it up in ~2-3 days
17:46:49  <davis> well , not entirely sure about the prices over there
17:47:01  <Xaroth> 100 euros of weed is a LOT of weed
17:47:04  <davis> but if you try to buy weed over here , 100€ isn't entirely much.
17:47:23  <davis> anyway , praise Dutchland
17:47:26  <Xaroth> aye
17:47:35  <davis> especialy Amsterdam , for having 4 times mc donalds in one street
17:47:36  <Xaroth> as finishing touch, god created the dutch
17:47:58  <Xaroth> I couldn't 'live' in amsterdam tho
17:48:00  <Xaroth> far too crowded
17:48:10  <davis> I like it , for a weekend every once in a while
17:48:17  <davis> maybe even a week. but not any longer than that

17:49:07  <Xaroth> where people bitch and moan when somebody is requesting to open a brothel or a coffee shop
17:49:11  <davis> I usualy stay at the sunpark in
17:49:17  <davis> I believe it's Zandvoort
17:49:23  <andythenorth_> Alberth: what would managing the consist mean for a ship or plane?
17:49:26  <davis> and from there it's just like 15 minutes by train to Amsterdam
17:50:04  <Xaroth> I'm on the other side of schiphol from zandvoort :P
17:50:10  <Alberth> pretty simple, you only have an engine :)

17:54:02  <andythenorth_> to be able to have orders changing consist, it needs to consist != group
