00:20:02  <Chrill> any bored soul wanna play a casual game of OpenTTD? some basic NewGRFs, no real difficulty level, just casual multiplaying?
00:20:25  <Chrill> (this bored soul must be able to host the game, I don't think I can set that up)
00:20:57  <supermop> will in an hour
00:21:03  <supermop> still at work
00:21:18  <Chrill> but in an hour, dinner will soon be starting to get made
00:21:20  <Chrill> :(
00:21:38  <supermop> hmm work was supposed to end 20 minutes ago
00:21:44  <Chrill> then go home!
00:22:01  <supermop> neither of us are doing anything
00:22:04  <supermop> hmmmm
00:22:11  <supermop> why are we here?
00:22:20  <Chrill> oh my, this is philosophical

06:56:59  <polymorphZ> would think he built an airport then joined the station, but if i do that after clicking station, airport name comes up

09:36:52  <palnts> Hi, is OpenTTD in need of more programmers?
09:40:42  <Noldo> now that's a nice opening question
09:42:06  <Noldo> just dive in and start making patches about things that you are interested in and in time if your work is good you might even get commit access
09:43:13  <__ln__> In the unlikely situation that your patches do what the main developers like.

09:44:54  <Noldo> good point
09:45:18  <palnts> Alright, sounds good.
09:46:24  <palnts> It takes quite some time getting to know the design of the system and I was not sure if this project was still going strong.
09:47:39  <planetmaker> The first thing I'd do was risk a look at the commit log...
09:50:17  <planetmaker> have you played the game yet, palnts ?
09:52:44  <palnts> Yes, I played the original and some time ago I found this project.
09:53:59  <palnts> I played it a lot, I just never considered I could actually work on it too.

09:55:47  <palnts> It must be a nightmare coordinating projects like this.
09:55:55  <palnts> My experience is with small groups only.
09:57:56  <Eddi|zuHause> it's not that bad. most patches have one author, and they need only be pointed in the right direction sometimes
09:58:37  <Eddi|zuHause> key point here is to not accept patches prematurely
09:59:47  <planetmaker> coordination works just fine here from my experience.
10:07:06  <palnts> Nice. Thanks for the info guys, I'm going to read/work myself into it and perhaps we'll speak again.
10:08:33  <Alberth> lol, coordination :)

10:19:08  <Wolf01> does anybody knows about minecraft?
10:21:39  <peter1138> lol
10:21:46  <peter1138> somewhat
10:23:16  <Wolf01> one of my devs is trying to rebuild the map system (with a little help of the original code, he decompilate the java objects), I think it could be applicable on OTTD to have infinite maps too
10:23:32  <peter1138> not really
10:23:59  <peter1138> i already implemented infinite maps in my minecraft (classic) server (didn't work too well with the classic client though)
10:24:05  <peter1138> so... infinite maps are not hard
10:24:12  <peter1138> but the way openttd uses the map is different
10:25:08  <peter1138> openttd generally needs all the map available to do processing, like updating tiles, growing towns, trees, etc...

10:25:20  *** Phoenix_the_II [ralph@home.deboom.biz] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
10:25:52  <peter1138> also in minecraft, the client only has a small area of map available
10:26:05  <peter1138> because it doesn't need to do any processing on it
10:26:11  <peter1138> which is not how openttd works
10:26:17  <Wolf01> in fact when in minecraft you exit the current map chunk, things become freezed (trees and wheat won't grow)
10:26:21  <peter1138> yes
10:26:48  <peter1138> so basically for openttd, you'd have to pretty much rewrite how everything works
10:27:01  <peter1138> (or have all of the infinite map loaded at once, which is impractical)
10:27:10  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, no. The word is "heartily"
10:27:36  <peter1138> so anyone else running an smp server?
10:27:37  <planetmaker> with a completely different intended meaning than "audible" ;-)
10:27:47  <peter1138> and has anyone else written their own classic server, hehe
10:27:59  <peter1138> (anyone else here, obviously)
10:28:35  <Wolf01> my friend is crawling around the client code to understand how it works to create a new server
10:28:44  <peter1138> Wolf01, classic is easy
10:28:59  <Wolf01> eh, but we are using alpha :P
10:29:02  <peter1138> alpha is tricky, because 1) the protocol keeps changing 2) there is client-side prediction

10:29:29  <peter1138> every time notch implements a new feature... you've gotta do the same, heh
10:29:38  <Wolf01> yes, we know
10:30:17  <Wolf01> but I think we will end up by making the same map system and then continue developing a game like monster hunter
10:31:23  <Xaroth_> peter1138: i run a SMP yeh
10:31:31  <peter1138> anyway, i think an openttd-like game with infinite maps is possible, but i don't know if it's worth it to use much of openttd
10:32:04  <peter1138> Wolf01, different client, sort of thing?
10:32:23  <peter1138> damn notch for making 720000 sales
10:34:44  <Wolf01> yeah, we already have the base terrain, generated with some math functions, if you want to look at it: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12739198/mine%20the%20gap.rar
10:34:54  <peter1138> terrain is easy, heh
10:35:39  <Wolf01> he's trying to understand how the terrain generator works, natural caves are really cool
10:35:49  <peter1138> problem in an openttd type game, if you have the terrain server-side, then you need to start sending tile updates when things change
10:36:00  <peter1138> notch's generator is pretty cool. has some annoying bugs though

10:36:15  <Wolf01> yeah, I read about them in the wiki
10:36:18  <peter1138> gosh, windows binary? how unuseful :p
10:36:45  <peter1138> you even stole the minecraft texture file :s
10:36:47  <Wolf01> he have the linux version too, but I have windows here, so this is what he sent me
10:37:24  <Wolf01> just for trying :P
10:37:54  <Wolf01> we should make smooth maps, not cubic ones
10:38:09  <Wolf01> all based on cubes, but with smooth angles
10:38:57  <peter1138> my infinite-map system for classic was actually infinite too
10:39:05  <peter1138> not limited to 128 blocks vertically
10:39:55  <Wolf01> nice
10:40:11  <peter1138> i never made it work though, hehe
10:40:25  <peter1138> the idea was that classic would see a 128x128 chunk

10:40:59  <andythenorth> where *I* come from, everyone was a miner
10:41:01  <andythenorth> it was shit
10:41:04  <peter1138> but i never implemented it, heh
10:41:17  <andythenorth> the idea of mining does not seem fun
10:41:18  <peter1138> and then he released SMP
10:41:24  <andythenorth> :D
10:41:28  <peter1138> and i pretty much stopped developing the classic server, hehe
10:41:52  <SpComb> so what's peter1138's secret codename alias in the minecraft community?
10:42:01  <andythenorth> does minecraft have a feature where you go down the mine all day, get vibration white finger, go to the pub, drink 10 pints of guiness, then go home and beat up your wife?
10:42:15  <SpComb> andythenorth: no, it's a fantasy world
10:42:31  <andythenorth> then you have a big strike, fight other miners, then thatcher shuts down all the mines?
10:42:48  <andythenorth> totally unrealistic :P
10:42:51  <andythenorth> I'm not playing
10:43:03  <peter1138> MORE REALISM IN MINECRAFT
10:43:03  <SpComb> you'd have to build a pub out of 1m³ blocks to be able to drink there, and similarly, you'd have to first build a wife out of 1m³ blocks to beat it up
10:43:13  <peter1138> realistic acceleration of minecarts!
10:43:28  <SpComb> peter1138: you don't like the part where they collide and speed up?

11:17:56  <peter1138> Wolf01, one problem with infinite worlds is you can't normalise the landscape
11:18:08  <Wolf01> right
11:18:13  <peter1138> therefore you need to choose your perlin parameters carefully (if you use perlin, heh)
11:18:48  <peter1138> tgp uses normalization all over the place, heh

11:19:55  <peter1138> otoh
11:20:19  <peter1138> if i started an openttd-alike with infinite worlds, i might use a 3d landscape
11:20:31  <peter1138> real tunnels, real bridges... yum
11:21:07  <Nite_Owl> In what year do the oil rigs become viable? <Have searched - not found>
11:21:14  <Wolf01> what about finite maps but each client loads only a chunk? it should reduce the memory used (so portable/low performance pc could benefit), but in SP mode it should be the same of now, the game is both the client and the server
11:22:08  <Wolf01> and in MP you need a lot more sync
11:22:28  <Wolf01> no, not practical
11:24:01  <peter1138> another problem is there is no "player position" in ottd
11:24:17  <peter1138> well not in the same way
11:24:30  <peter1138> you can switch to different parts of the map instantly
11:24:38  <Wolf01> and there are multiple viewports too
11:25:58  <peter1138> you need to have towns and industries generated on the fly too
11:26:18  <peter1138> which would mean town and industry lists wouldn't work too well
11:26:41  <fonsinchen> Infinite maps by combining multiple games on different servers, with a protocol to exchange vehicles between them.
11:26:53  <Wolf01> like sim city 4?
11:26:58  <Nite_Owl> Thought of another way to find out...
11:27:02  <fonsinchen> Like map on server A is east of map on server B and vehicles can travel between them.

11:28:13  <Alberth> hmm, gives nice opporunities for DOS :)
11:28:41  <fonsinchen> yeah, the server has to know which other servers it trusts
11:28:42  * roboboy likes
11:29:20  <Alberth> even with just good servers. Just drive all vehicles to the same area at the map :)
11:30:17  <fonsinchen> That highlights another related problem: how do you send vehicles to a different game? You have to be logged into both games somehow and make an order list spanning two games.
11:30:50  <Alberth> yeah, vehicles is much more complicated
11:30:57  *** KenjiE20 [~KenjiE20@92.8.197.32] has joined #openttd
11:31:16  <Alberth> I still want to try a connection with cargoes between openttd servers
11:31:55  <fonsinchen> could be solved by somehow registering a vehicle with another server and a company there. That company can set an orderlist for it then and there is a special order saying "leave the map to <direction>".
11:32:17  <Alberth> a kind of 'harbour' or so, where cargoes you bring are moved to a different server for pick up
11:32:24  <fonsinchen> This would enable the server to control the number of vehicles coming: it can reject registrations
11:32:56  <fonsinchen> It would also enable vehicles to exist on different maps without one client being logged into multiple games.
11:33:43  <fonsinchen> with a harbour you limit the exchange to goods. Might also be enough.

14:13:15  <fonsinchen> what tool do you use to align and label sprites with numbers in a big png; like terrain04.png in opengfx?
14:13:43  <planetmaker> fonsinchen, that file is not the best guide for doing (new) sprites.
14:14:14  <planetmaker> What I do (and ask graphic artists to follow), is to provide sprites of the same kind in a somewhat regular pattern
14:14:18  *** lugo [lugo@195.3.138.104] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
14:15:20  <planetmaker> then I use gimp to determine their sizes and measure out their upper left coordinate
14:15:31  <planetmaker> Given a regular pattern I only have to do that for the first instance.
14:15:53  <fonsinchen> so you arrange the sprites manually in the file?
14:15:54  <planetmaker> In all subsequent ones I only have to determine the upper left of the first sprite (e.g. vehicles where there are 8 sprites per vehicle)
14:16:27  <planetmaker> Those who draw it have to do that anyway.
14:16:33  <SmatZ> [15:13:22] <DorpsGek> planetmaker: 7.5 <== shame... I wasn't really thinking about those numbers :-x
14:16:49  <planetmaker> So they can use the same pattern for others, too
14:18:05  <planetmaker> fonsinchen, you might checkout the OpenGFX repository. It has some graphics "templates"
14:18:24  <planetmaker> which can be used to define sizes and offsets. E.g. for ground sprites, train wagons, houses...
14:18:45  <fonsinchen> Oh, I'll have a look. Thanks
14:18:52  <planetmaker> just using those templates for new graphics saves you doing all that measuring again :-)
14:19:11  * fonsinchen is trying to create frozen shore tiles
14:19:11  <planetmaker> Or OpenGFX+Trains and SwedishRails use also templates for most things
14:19:22  <planetmaker> Not much point in creating a template for a one-time sprite, though
14:20:48  <roboboy> gnight
14:20:58  <planetmaker> g'night roboboy
14:22:30  <planetmaker> http://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/opengfx/repository/show/sprites/source/templates <-- fonsinchen
14:22:56  <planetmaker> http://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/opengfx/repository/show/sprites/nfo/templates
14:23:15  <planetmaker> graphics and related nfo templates (need cpp pre-processor)
14:23:43  <planetmaker> the templating is WAY easier in NML, where you can also easily do relative positions with x and y
14:24:30  <planetmaker> http://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/ogfx-trains/repository/entry/src/templates_sprites.pnml <-- then it can look like that

14:37:31  <planetmaker> fonsinchen, I sent you in tt-forums two files which you possibly could make good use of when doing ground tiles
14:38:30  <planetmaker> The ground tile file there is even better suitable for new stuff than any openGFX ground tile file

14:38:59  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: what does 42, 88 and 78 mean in there?
14:39:20  <planetmaker> err_no_context
14:40:04  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: your last link.
14:40:10  <planetmaker> ah.
14:40:24  <planetmaker> 88 is 8 8th wagon length (8 views)
14:40:45  <planetmaker> 42 is also 8/8 wagon length, but only 4 views
14:40:51  <planetmaker> 78 is 7/8 wagon length
14:40:54  <fonsinchen> Thanks
14:40:54  <planetmaker> 8 views
14:41:08  <Eddi|zuHause> the naming is not very consistent :p
14:41:13  <planetmaker> indeed
14:41:40  <fonsinchen> for the basic ground tiles I just edited the nfo files for now and used different sprites from terrain04.png. That's fine so far.
14:41:47  <planetmaker> the naming will need some revision at some stage
14:41:52  <Eddi|zuHause> and the whole file is probably very redundant
14:41:58  <planetmaker> fonsinchen, use NML. Easier ;-)
14:42:01  <fonsinchen> Now I'm creating frozen shore tiles as those don't exist yet.
14:42:11  *** realbigdreamer [~realbigdr@41.52.98.39] has joined #openttd
14:42:32  <fonsinchen> I didn't edit them manually; I used a shell script with grep, awk and bc to just change the numbers.
14:42:35  <planetmaker> Though for simple replacement not shorter, it allows you to use just the x and y offsets
14:42:49  <planetmaker> right :-)
14:49:17  <fonsinchen> oh, gridless. That's a good idea in fact.
14:52:54  <planetmaker> looks awesome

15:37:18  <planetmaker> rough land doesn't grow, though
15:37:37  <planetmaker> and ground tiles must not exceed the... ground
15:37:43  <planetmaker> As such that will prove problematic
15:37:47  <fonsinchen> I don't actually need trees to grow. They'd be for decoration only.
15:37:56  <fonsinchen> Well, only rocks then
15:38:17  <planetmaker> Yeah, but exceeding the ground tile glitches
15:38:48  <fonsinchen> whatever, no trees then.

18:59:01  <Wolfie> #OpenTTD, I have a problem.
18:59:50  <Wolfie> I can't get newGRFs from the content server working at all on my dedicated server.
19:00:53  <Wolfie> The server just ignores any changes to openttd.cfg
19:00:59  <Wolfie> Running Ubuntu linux.
19:01:32  <LordAro> have you restarted the server?
19:01:36  <Eddi|zuHause> a) you shouldn't modify the .cfg while the server is running, b) maybe it's using a different .cfg altogether?
19:01:55  <Wolfie> I don't modify while it's running.
19:02:22  <Wolfie> And I know it's using the CFG because the server name etc is set correctlty.
19:03:39  <Wolfie> It literally clears out the Newgrf config section each time I start the server.
19:04:15  <Rubidium> then either the files or missing or the paths are incorrect
19:05:35  <Wolfie> Okay, I can't see where to put the GRFs beside ~/.openttd/data
19:05:55  <Yexo> what did you put in the config file in the newgrf section?
19:12:49  <Ammler> an "autodownloder" needs first to be made ;-)
19:13:27  <Eddi|zuHause> a packagemanager-like cli interface for openttd ;)
19:13:33  <Ammler> the only useable war currently is to simply download everything
19:13:39  <Ammler> way*
19:14:36  <Ammler> so you download the content and then you restart openttd and it should work
19:15:13  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: doesn't that already exist?
19:21:56  <Ammler> Rubidium: nice would be something like "content select <save>"
19:23:03  <Rubidium> doesn't work for dedicated
19:23:03  <Ammler> (if autodownload will never be possible :-)
19:25:14  <Ammler> the new save gui from frosch might be nice, but there we had already possiblity to download save grfs, what we miss is the same for the console
19:25:41  <frosch123> wasn't that task assigned ammler?

19:44:37  <LordAro> well i can try deleting my source directory and starting completely again, but i did 'svn revert . -R' and fully updated it first :/
19:45:17  <Alberth> make mrproper ; ./configure ; make
19:45:49  <LordAro> running...
19:46:18  <Alberth> svn revert -R .    does not remove all files
19:48:13  <LordAro> so to clear my svn directory after i've (attempted and probably failed to) patch ottd, i should run 'make mrproper' ?
19:49:01  <Yexo> make mrproper removes all configuration and object files, svn revert just changes your source files to a state like they were before patching
19:49:22  <LordAro> so both would be good?
19:49:26  <Yexo> yes
19:49:47  <Yexo> depending on what exactly you changed, only one might be needed but it's always safe to do both

21:45:31  <fjb> My biggest problem with (older versions, don't know the actual) cargodist is, that it ignores the sense of some orders. For example before going to a depot I usually unload all passengers at a station. The the vehicle goes to the depot and then it retakes it. I also had route designs where a train went to a station 2 times just after another, to turn it around. Loading the vehicle is only useful at the second stop in both examples, but cargodist
21:45:33  <fjb> insisted on loading at the first stop ignoring the loading and unloading orders.
21:46:27  *** Chrill [~Chrill@ip68-8-120-178.sd.sd.cox.net] has quit []
21:46:29  <fonsinchen> When did it do that?
21:47:09  <fonsinchen> If you send it to the same station twice it will exactly behave as you describe it, even without explicit "load" and "unload"
21:49:27  <fonsinchen> It should at least. I'll check when I'm done with the merging of trunk changes.
21:49:39  <fjb> Oh, then the problem was the other way around. I also hat a design, where a train should load at the first stop and then the train turned around and went to the station a second time for path finding. In that case it didn't load at the first stop but tried to load at the second stop.
21:50:15  <Yexo> polymorphZ: I hope you got my hint above: crashes are bad, but to get any help you'll need to give us more information
21:50:21  <fonsinchen> that's true. It doesn't know which passengers to load at the first stop.
21:50:59  <fonsinchen> I could make a special case for that very thing and have it do order-lookahead if it sees it's going to visit the station multiple times.
21:51:13  <fjb> It does only look at the next station, even if that station is the same?
21:51:31  <fonsinchen> yes. If it's the same it decides it can as well load later on
21:51:44  <fonsinchen> of course it does more look-ahead for conditional orders.
21:52:01  <fjb> It should take a hint from the explicit order.
21:52:04  <fonsinchen> and it doesn't care about "go via"
21:52:21  *** Eddi|zuHause2 is now known as Eddi|zuHause
21:52:23  <fonsinchen> so, you could make the second stop "go via" and it will load at the first
21:53:48  <fonsinchen> So, should it actually stop at the second visit and if so, what should it do?
21:54:26  <fjb> Go via is not always possible because that is fulfilled as soon as a vehicle enters the station, but sometimes trains need to be at the exit of a station to do pathfinding correct (if it needs to turn around in the station).
21:55:30  <fonsinchen> I guess you have an order where it's allowed to unload but not to load, then?
21:55:30  *** andythenorth [~andy@cpc9-aztw25-2-0-cust133.aztw.cable.virginmedia.com] has joined #openttd
21:55:50  <fjb> If the oders allow loading at the first stop, but loading is forbidden at the second stop, it should recognize that.
21:56:27  <fjb> Usually the order for the second stop is no loading and no unloading.
21:57:01  <polymorphZ> Yexo: well old system
21:57:08  <polymorphZ> c- 3.4.5
21:58:13  <fonsinchen> well, another very strange special case. It wouldn't be too hard to make an exception for that, but do we _really_ need that. Will anyone understand it?
21:58:14  <polymorphZ> date 2005-2006
21:58:22  <fjb> Second problem with cargodist is finding a proper timeout for unused routes.
21:58:52  <fonsinchen> That's automatic and depends on the length of the link, you can't configure it anymore.
22:00:04  <fonsinchen> And I haven't seen a lot of complaints about it lately (except for people messing with the daylength patch).
22:01:49  <fonsinchen> btw, there are no orders with "no unloading" and "no loading". Those are "go via" orders by definition.
22:02:04  <fjb> A stop where loading and unloading are not allowed could simply be removed from the routing.
22:02:13  <polymorphZ> i guess problem would fix if i upgrade to new system :(
22:02:23  <Belugas> AND OFF I GO!!!!!
22:02:25  <Belugas> night all
22:02:30  <Belugas> and good weekend
22:03:07  <fonsinchen> it is.
22:03:11  <LordAro> me off too actually
22:03:13  <LordAro> by all
22:03:19  <fonsinchen> go via is not considered a stop by cargodist
22:04:30  <fjb> I'm playing with a version of cargodist from spring (still the same game). Some routes (with ships) time out before the destination is reached. But sometimes I would like to have the possibility to explicitly invalidate a route (may be be clicking on it in the small map window or anywhere else).
22:04:40  <fjb> Night Belugas.
22:05:35  <fonsinchen> requires a command and all that stuff. Can be done, but that can also be done as add-on. I don't think it's core functionality of cargodist.
22:05:44  <fjb> Not go via, a go to (not via) rule with "no loading" and "no unloading" option. could also be removed.
22:05:57  <fonsinchen> that's the same in the code
22:06:12  <fonsinchen> and that's probably why you can't define such an order
22:06:24  *** ABCRic [~ABCRic@245.37.54.77.rev.vodafone.pt] has joined #openttd
22:06:57  <fjb> Ah, ok, then it changed from my old version. But I don't want to start a new game till this one is over and I fear that a never version of cargodist is unable to load my old game.
22:07:35  <fonsinchen> it will be unable to load it for sure.
22:07:41  <fjb> I can define a go to order without loading and unloading.
22:08:01  <fjb> But cargodist does not care for it.
22:08:33  <fonsinchen> If you define a go via order, do the links to/from it show up in the link graph?
22:09:03  <fonsinchen> If yes, then you're playing with a version that doesn't ignore go via, yet.
22:10:07  <PulseNeon>  What does Cargo-dist do exactly?
22:10:47  <fonsinchen> it automatically routes cargo according to an algorithm that takes into account all reachable destinations.
22:10:59  <PulseNeon> "routes"?
22:11:15  <fjb> fonsinchen: No go via, I'm speaking about go to. Go via behaved different.
22:11:17  <PulseNeon> i.e. cargo gets reserved for a destination?
22:11:54  <fonsinchen> but try with "go via" please.
22:12:13  <fjb> Go via is unusable in some situations.
22:12:36  <fonsinchen> I'd like to determine if you have a version that already has that feature.
22:13:06  <fonsinchen> If you have such a version and it doesn't ignore those go to orders without loading or unloading then something is wrong.
22:13:21  <polymorphZ> Yexo: also mozilla and konqueror had segmentation fault issues on same system
22:13:26  <fonsinchen> (even if I don't know how you managed to define those orders)
22:13:39  <polymorphZ> might be same
22:13:42  <fjb> Go via and go to are fundamentally different from the path finding point of view. So go via can not always replace a go to.
22:13:49  <Yexo> ok, so it's likely something else on your system
22:14:01  <fonsinchen> do you have the game running right now?
22:14:55  <fjb> No, I did not use that design in my actual game because cargodist never got it right.
22:16:07  <fonsinchen> ok, now I can check for myself. It's done with merging
22:16:26  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: you hacked your version to allow both "no loading" and "no unloading" at the same time?
22:16:55  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: because standard openttd actively prevents that combination
22:17:09  <Eddi|zuHause> (which i think is bad.)
22:17:48  <fonsinchen> it does that because it would be the same as "go via". As there is no separate field saying "stop" or "don't stop".

22:18:32  <fjb> The difference between go to and go via is that go via is fulfilled as soon as the first vehicle of a train enters the first tile of an station. The pathfinder starts to look for the route to the next order in that moment and the train is not allowed to turn around there. Go to is fulfilled when the train is fully in the station (if the station is long enough).
22:18:45  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: that was not the question.
22:19:07  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: No, may be I misinterpreted the orders. I will have a look.
22:23:04  <fjb> Hm, you are right. Not possible in the actual (actual in spring) version. One setting reverts the other. But I remember it was working in an older version. Or it got displayed incorrectly in the older versions.
22:23:07  <fonsinchen> OK, I've tried. It actually does load at the first stop
22:23:49  <fjb> fonsinchen: Then the problem is probably solved in the actual version of cargodist.
22:24:33  <fjb> Only my feature request to explicily invalidate a route is left.
22:24:38  <fonsinchen> hmm, maybe those were only passengers via "any station"  ...

22:25:24  <fonsinchen> ok, you're actually right. It doesn't in fact load at the first stop.
22:25:41  <fjb> I had the problem with a freight train, but cargodist changed a lot over time.
22:26:16  <PulseNeon> I just saw robert fischer in Red Eye
22:27:32  <fonsinchen> I could just ignore subsequent stops at the same station in GetNextStoppingStation
22:27:42  <fonsinchen> but there was some problem with that idea, too ...
22:27:50  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: And I agree with you that not allowing "no laoding" and "no unloading" at the same time is a bad thing. It is even not obvious when you are not taking a very close look at the order in the list above but are only looking at the buttons you are clicking.
22:28:55  <fjb> fonsinchen: That woulg give a problem when loading is required at the second visit instead of the first. Remember the example with going to the depot.
22:29:40  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: you can put "unload all and no loading" then
22:30:32  <fonsinchen> so, I should ignore subsequent stops with "no loading" then. That will make problems if the first stop is "no unloading" and the second is "no loading" though. I see why I didn't do it ...
22:30:41  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: If cargodist obeys that part of the order.

22:32:18  <fjb> fonsinchen: You would have to have both stops in the list then and make the look ahead look one destination further.
22:32:28  <fonsinchen> no, it only considers a "leave empty" with any number of subsequent "no loading"

22:34:31  <fjb> Collapsing two ore more subsequent stops at the same station to one gives problems.
22:34:40  <fonsinchen> in fact manually controlled unloading is much easier to handle than manually controlled loading.
22:34:52  <polymorphZ> hi
22:35:11  <polymorphZ> can someone tell me why it openttd lagging so much in multiplayer?
22:35:19  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, that's what i meant.
22:35:26  <polymorphZ> saved the game nd loaded it, and it goes well
22:36:08  <fjb> I guess it is difficult, but you will get complains as long as manual rules are overridden by an automatic that tries to be be smarter than the user.
22:38:03  <fonsinchen> I actually have an idea on how to solve it. It breaks the automatic loading/unloading if you're sending trains to a depot in between and want to unload before and load afterwards. But you've done that manually before anyway.
22:38:47  <fjb> Yes. Not too much automatic.

22:47:48  <Eddi|zuHause> what i would like to see [independent of cargodist]: the train evaluates the next order before deciding to start from the station. then when that order is the same station, it doesn't start. so one can use conditional orders like "x% loaded", and the train would wait until it fulfils that order.
22:49:10  <fonsinchen> that would break all of fjb's pathfinding and depot tricks, though.
22:49:31  <fjb> Yes...
22:50:07  <Terkhen> or those crazy self regulated networks
22:50:16  <fonsinchen> ok, I'll guess I'll commit it and see if someone else remembers why I didn't do that before ... :/
22:50:17  <Eddi|zuHause> well, he can put a waypoint inbetween
22:50:21  <fjb> Why not load x% at the first order?
22:51:08  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: there is no "load x%" order
22:51:14  <Eddi|zuHause> what i mean is for example this:
22:51:18  <Eddi|zuHause> 1: goto A
22:51:26  <Eddi|zuHause> 2: if less than x% loaded, jump to 1
22:51:30  <Eddi|zuHause> 3: goto B
22:51:53  <fjb> That is a loop.
22:51:57  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: IIRC that's going to get *really* messy w.r.t. the arriving at station code
22:52:11  <Eddi|zuHause> yes. that is a loop.
22:52:29  <polymorphZ> is 2.2GHz 64bit AMD with 1GB DDR memory a weak system to run openttd in multiplayer mode?
22:52:35  <Eddi|zuHause> after the initial loading, it would be executed once after every loading step
22:52:44  <fjb> And how long to wait between each evaluation of the loop? Else you will have busy waiting.
22:52:59  <fonsinchen> ah, you could make a difference between 'same order' and 'same station'.
22:53:03  <fonsinchen> then it might work.
22:53:31  <Rubidium> but the order is eradicated upon "leaving" the station
22:53:34  <Eddi|zuHause> hm... i don't immediately see all the implications of that
22:53:43  <ABCRic> polymorphZ: as long as it works for single-player; the main requirement for multiplayer mode is a good internet connection
22:54:09  * fjb gets a lot of ideas what could be done with loops in orders. :-)
22:54:35  <polymorphZ> ABCRic: so if multiplayer game lags its because a slow connection to server ?
22:54:45  <Rubidium> fjb: the amount of looping is per definition limited
22:54:46  <ABCRic> probably
22:54:59  <Rubidium> or because the server is too slow
22:55:05  <Rubidium> or because the connection is too unreliable
22:55:19  <Rubidium> or because your graphics card driver just sucks majorly
22:55:24  <Eddi|zuHause> i always wondered: how long (in ticks) is actually one loading step?
22:55:27  <polymorphZ> well i can imagine that if data hops over 5000 kms

23:08:21  <Eddi|zuHause> polymorphZ: if you apply an impulse on one end, it spreads in wave form through the steel rod. means it has a spreading speed which will be significantly less than speed of light

23:51:06  <planetmaker> we don't really know it, but there's currently no indication, that the vacuum speed of light varies by the place.
23:51:07  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: speed of light is primarily _measured_ at the location of this earth.
23:51:08  *** Devroush [~dennis@94-225-75-247.access.telenet.be] has quit []
23:51:17  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: nope ;-)
23:51:31  <planetmaker> It's meanwhile a defined constant :-P
23:51:51  <planetmaker> and the meter is the dependent variable
23:52:11  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: just a bunch of physicists defining something doesn't make it a universal truth.
23:52:24  <Eddi|zuHause> the earth was defined to be flat, after all
23:53:01  *** frosch123 [~frosch@frnk-590f6563.pool.mediaWays.net] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:53:08  <planetmaker> as said: there's no indication that space is unisotropic and unhomogeneous
23:53:16  *** Progman [~progman@p57A1AC4E.dip.t-dialin.net] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:53:47  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: but there is also no reason why it has to be.
23:53:51  <planetmaker> and time is the most accurately measureable property. Thus speed also
23:53:59  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: there is: Occams razor
23:54:04  <planetmaker> Everything else is religion
23:54:41  <Eddi|zuHause> "the earth is flat" is also subject to occams razor
23:54:54  <planetmaker> yes. But it was proven wrong.
23:55:10  <planetmaker> and it's not simpler than Earth is a sphere either
23:56:02  <planetmaker> so unless there's some explanation value in unisotropic universe and non-universality of fundamental constants (or a time dependence for them), the simplest assumption must be made
23:56:25  <planetmaker> Or I can explain gravity also by the Bausch which picks up the spoon and transports it down to the floor when it leaves my hands
23:57:18  <polymorphZ> Eddi|zuHause: so in electronics it is interesting to get square root of negative numbers
23:57:38  <polymorphZ> your computer power supply uses sqrt(-1) too :)
23:58:06  <Eddi|zuHause> polymorphZ: there are plenty of uses for imaginary numbers
23:58:34  <planetmaker> quite
23:59:02  <planetmaker> you called an imaginary number. Please turn your phone 90° and try again :-P
23:59:10  <polymorphZ> ahah
