00:47:41  <confound> sometimes with PBS I will find trains stopping when they don't really need to, e.g. in front of a large station or a complex junction, and they'll say "waiting for free path" even if a path seems obviously free (I have "show reserved tracks" on)
00:47:55  <confound> any idea why? a quick forum search shows nothing, but I'm not sure I'm searchin for the right terms
00:57:35  *** bryjen [~bryjen@75.81.215.183] has joined #openttd
00:58:20  <Markk> confound: What I can think of is that the train may be lost.
01:00:26  <Eddi|zuHause> AN HOUR JUST WENT MISSING!
01:01:47  <glx> who stole my hour ???
01:04:55  <confound> Markk: trains regularly go through these junctions without getting lost
01:05:07  <Markk> Mkay.
01:05:24  <confound> I tried adding a waypoint not long after the junction and it didn't seem to help, too.
01:05:54  <Markk> And other trains can find the same station?
01:06:28  <confound> right
01:06:50  <confound> and it's not a particular train that always stops

01:20:17  <Eddi|zuHause> confound: maybe it is trying to find a depot?
01:21:37  <Eddi|zuHause> confound: also, pathfinder penalties may guide your trains through tracks you wouldn't immediately choose by yourself
01:21:54  <Wolf01> 'night
01:22:01  *** Wolf01 [~wolf01@host193-160-dynamic.56-82-r.retail.telecomitalia.it] has quit [Quit: Once again the world is quick to bury me.]
01:23:20  <confound> it's not trying to find a depot, though that was a good idea
01:23:25  <confound> what do you mean about pathfinder penalties?
01:23:43  <confound> That is:
01:23:48  <confound> the trains end up getting to the right place
01:26:35  <confound> and there are a bunch of trains before and after, with the same orders, that don't seem to have any problem taking whichever track is free
01:26:54  <confound> (this particular one is a 2 line + 2 line -> 2 line merge)
01:29:31  <Eddi|zuHause> confound: i mean: the track ahead gets differently favourable values depending on where there are track reservations further ahead than one signal block. in those cases, a train may decide to take the track that is blocked, instead of the one that is free.
01:30:27  <confound> so maybe it thinks the blocked track is really just that much better
01:30:36  <Eddi|zuHause> each track tile gets a calculated penalty (low for a free track, higher for occupied track, stations, level crossings, etc.)
01:31:01  <Eddi|zuHause> the path that adds up to the lowest over its entire length gets chosen
01:31:18  <confound> hmm
01:31:30  <confound> so, moving the waypoint I have to immediately after the junction might help?
01:31:41  <confound> because it will be pathfinding for a very short distance and have less potential confusion
01:31:58  <Eddi|zuHause> yes. but too close could have other negative effects
01:32:13  <confound> oh?
01:32:55  <confound> like what
01:33:15  <Eddi|zuHause> there are certain load balancing features built in, which will lose their effect completely
01:33:43  <confound> well, in this case I don't really want any load balancing -- I just want to pick the free track
01:33:48  <confound> the immediately free track
01:33:50  <Eddi|zuHause> so you might get one line too tightly packed, and at later merges you don't find enough openings, while the other track will be almost empty
01:34:22  <confound> oh, I guess it will still affect what happens when both lines are free
01:34:42  <confound> is there anywhere to read about this stuff?
01:34:55  <Eddi|zuHause> not really
01:35:00  <confound> bah. the waypoint didn't help, anyway
01:35:36  <Eddi|zuHause> but there might be a valid suggestion here: apply different penalty for reserved track in the signal block directly ahead
01:36:16  <confound> than for reserved track further on?
01:36:40  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
01:37:07  <Eddi|zuHause> for block signals, only the next 10 signals are considered, all other signals are ignored
01:38:54  <confound> these are entirely PBS
01:39:07  <confound> does that change anything about what you said?
01:40:31  *** pugi [~pugi@p4FCC24DA.dip.t-dialin.net] has quit [Quit: I reject your reality and substitute my own]
01:40:35  <Eddi|zuHause> i meant: for block signals, it is really a local balancing effect, so there need to be measures to make it similar for path signals
01:42:22  <confound> ah, I understand
01:47:13  <confound> I guess I could crank up pf.yapf.rail_pbs_cross_penalty and see if that helps
01:51:04  <Eddi|zuHause> playing with that may make it better. or make it worse. the highest probability however is, that you screw up your network at a completely differenent place

11:15:35  * andythenorth wonders how much cargo improvement could be achieved with minimal spec
11:15:50  <andythenorth> change
11:17:45  <Yexo> the changes to the spec are not the problem, the changes to all vehicle sets are way more problematic'
11:30:15  <andythenorth> I think there's a way that works with existing sets
11:30:25  <andythenorth> keeping (train) prop 28 as is
11:30:50  <andythenorth> allowing cargos three new props for OR, AND, NOT classes
11:31:05  <andythenorth> and ignoring (train) prop 29 when the cargos provide the new props
11:31:10  <andythenorth> existing sets just carry on
11:31:43  <andythenorth> by my initial test of mapping, sets that break badly were using classes wrong
11:32:08  <andythenorth> I don't know how to express the logic
11:32:23  <andythenorth> my understanding of logic never seems to go >50% :(
11:33:40  <andythenorth> I think it would mean no changes to vehicle props at all
11:34:44  *** Aylomen [~chatzilla@DSL01.83.171.151.18.ip-pool.NEFkom.net] has joined #openttd
11:39:44  <andythenorth> three cargo props would be needed, logic (I think would be)
11:39:55  <andythenorth> allow refit IF ((class 1 OR class 2) AND class 3 NAND class 4)
11:40:11  <andythenorth> oops
11:40:13  <andythenorth> ((class 1 OR class 2) AND class 3) NAND class 4
11:41:07  <andythenorth> even then, I'm not sure that's correct :|
11:41:12  *** KritiK [~Maxim@95-27-145-252.broadband.corbina.ru] has joined #openttd
11:41:56  <andythenorth> that would allow refit if class 4 true and not classes 1, 2 or 3
11:41:57  <andythenorth> that's wrong
11:42:33  <andythenorth> ((class 1 OR class 2) AND class 3) AND NOT class 4
11:46:09  <__ln__> http://www.rferl.org/content/russia_switches_clocks_to_summer_time_for_good/3538365.html
11:51:12  <frosch123> andythenorth: just to throw in my default concern: don't you think a callback checking some variables is a lot easier than 3 or 4 properties with complicates AND, OR; XOR and more?
11:57:10  *** Aylomen [~chatzilla@DSL01.83.171.151.18.ip-pool.NEFkom.net] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:57:32  <andythenorth> frosch123: maybe
11:57:48  <andythenorth> I hesitate to propose that
11:57:58  <andythenorth> but I can see how it might be cleaner
11:58:22  <andythenorth> and logic moves to the newgrf author
12:02:26  *** Intexon [~Intexon@blk-222-147-135.eastlink.ca] has joined #openttd
12:03:06  <andythenorth> frosch123: ok, it's a good idea
12:03:25  <andythenorth> one new callback, allow refitting.  Return 00 80 or 01 80 to allow / disallow
12:03:40  <frosch123> you could also return some capacity multiplier
12:03:44  <andythenorth> ooh
12:03:45  <andythenorth> yes
12:04:01  <andythenorth> train props 28 / 29 are already available (and equivalent for other vehicles)?
12:04:43  <andythenorth> and I can identify which newgrf a vehicle is from
12:04:57  <frosch123> all properties are available. but i would avoid calling cb 36
12:05:06  <frosch123> i.e. avoid properies which can be modified via cb 36
12:05:07  <andythenorth> so authors, if they could be bothered, could special case for old, no-longer maintained vehicle sets
12:05:21  <andythenorth> is this something that could be tested?
12:05:40  <frosch123> test what?
12:05:44  <andythenorth> a new callback :)
12:06:44  <andythenorth> this is called on the cargo, not the vehicle, yes?
12:06:46  <frosch123> well, i suggested  a refit cb for vehicles some time ago (also quoted yesterday). but maybe you are right that a cargo callback would be better
12:07:05  <andythenorth> I think that vehicles the existing system is effective
12:07:14  <andythenorth> as there is always the possibility of labels
12:07:22  <andythenorth> and class handling by cb won't be much better than is already available
12:07:46  <andythenorth> and I have a strong feeling it was designed for certain needs of certain vehicle authors in any case
12:08:17  <frosch123> andythenorth: you could add something like: cb is not called for cargos which are part of the cargo trans table of the grf
12:08:31  <frosch123> i.e. "known to the vehicle grf"
12:08:38  <frosch123> but, i am not sure about that
12:08:39  <andythenorth> hmm
12:08:43  <andythenorth> this is an interesting point
12:08:51  * andythenorth checks spec
12:09:48  <andythenorth> isn't it more that prop 1D should be respected?
12:10:16  <andythenorth> (train prop 1D)
12:10:41  <frosch123> well, but you cannot tell properly from prop 1d whether a cargo is explcitly wanted or unwanted
12:10:50  <andythenorth> gah
12:12:12  <andythenorth> do vehicle authors need to be able to over-ride a cargo cb for refittability?
12:12:25  * andythenorth tries to think of a case for that
12:12:57  <andythenorth> if the refitting is wrong, the classes are wrong
12:13:00  <frosch123> if a vehicle grf knows a specific cargo, it should know better :)
12:13:52  <andythenorth> assuming that cargos remain consistently defined between sets
12:13:57  <andythenorth> so far we've managed that quite well
12:14:20  <andythenorth> there is only one point of difference between ECS and FIRS which irritates
12:15:39  <andythenorth> otherwise we agree pretty well
12:16:48  <andythenorth> but I think over-riding the cb would limit the usefulness
12:16:57  <andythenorth> sand is a good case
12:17:23  <andythenorth> try, without using explicit support, to define sand to allow it to travel in open wagons, open hoppers, and covered hoppers
12:17:31  <andythenorth> whilst also preventing coal from travelling by covered hopper

12:33:33  <frosch123> it just needs to be consistent and predictable :)
12:33:34  <andythenorth> I was looking for odd cases
12:33:47  <andythenorth> cases like 'how does Pikka support a grain-only wagon'
12:34:05  <andythenorth> and the answer appears to be 'explicit support using train prop 1D, not classes'
12:34:23  <andythenorth> far as I can tell
12:34:37  <frosch123> a grain only car would set all class properties to 0 and only use 1D
12:34:44  <andythenorth> seems so
12:35:07  <andythenorth> the thing I like about the scheme I worked out was that it doesn't change existing classes in any way
12:35:13  <frosch123> if a cargo grf forces the refittability to a certain cargo, while refittable-classes is zero, that is the fault of the cargo grf

13:21:53  <frosch123> however, it could also be called on refitting, to set the multipliers or so

13:22:54  <andythenorth> so the implementation has to cache all vehicle refittability somewhere?
13:23:04  <frosch123> it already does

13:32:34  <frosch123> no? why?
13:33:22  <andythenorth> just wondering for the spec
13:35:03  <frosch123> what variables does it need?
13:35:23  <frosch123> i guess the two cargo class properties
13:35:24  <andythenorth> (I'll refer to train props if that's ok)
13:35:26  <andythenorth> yes
13:35:29  <andythenorth> prop 28 / 29
13:35:40  <frosch123> most props are useless :)
13:36:13  <andythenorth> everything relating to consists is pointless / dangerous at this point...
13:36:44  <frosch123> you cannot access the consist, there is not even a vehicle
13:36:57  <andythenorth> and if you could...that would be nuts
13:36:59  <frosch123> it is called on game load/start, so you have only the purchase list information
13:37:34  <frosch123> and exposing cb36 properties is also bad
13:37:39  <andythenorth> would a newgrf id and vehicle id be safe?
13:38:06  <andythenorth> I'm not sure whether to limit potential for bad behaviour or not
13:38:24  <andythenorth> e.g. with date vars, cargo cargo authors could do stupid things
13:38:39  <andythenorth> checking date would be broken
13:38:44  <Eddi|zuHause>  <andythenorth> so you think 'refit to x before 1982 and y after 1982' is bad gameplay :P <-- you can already do that with introducing a new vehicle, it doesn't need a refitability callback.
13:39:04  <andythenorth> but it would be very bad behaviour by a cargo set author
13:39:07  <andythenorth> unless it's a prank
13:39:12  <andythenorth> for 1 April :P
13:39:53  <andythenorth> if dates were available, some well-meaning person will try and use them to 'hide' cargos until they're available
13:39:56  <andythenorth> and other such confusing things
13:40:44  <andythenorth> frosch123: essential: prop 28 / 29
13:40:53  <andythenorth> maybe 1D, but I can't see how to trust it
13:41:00  <andythenorth> and ideally grfid and vehicle id
13:41:25  <andythenorth> everything else should be forbidden unless we think of a good reason for it
13:42:10  <Eddi|zuHause> if you say something like "Maize is the same as Grain", then that essentially works the same as railtype compatibility
13:42:16  <andythenorth> indeed
13:42:22  <andythenorth> but I think 1D is needed for that
13:42:29  <andythenorth> and 1D can't be trusted
13:43:38  <Eddi|zuHause> but that essentially makes cargo classes kind of "similar to <existing cargo>", it's not possible to create entirely new cargo classes that are not covered yet
13:44:33  <andythenorth> brb
13:46:49  <frosch123> you could add a 60+ variable which takes a cargo as parameter, and returns the current refittability or so

14:35:11  <Ammler> why aren't those cfgs?
14:35:37  <Eddi|zuHause> describing "format X" by using "format X" is a traditional computer science task ;)
14:38:25  <Alberth> it is not a config file but rather a source file?
14:40:07  <Eddi|zuHause> Ammler: the extension "cfg" is rather describing the content, not the format
14:40:35  <Ammler> the cfg isn't ini format
14:40:50  <Ammler> maybe that has changed
14:41:20  <Alberth> oh, that cfg
14:41:48  <Eddi|zuHause> Ammler: let's call it a dialect.
14:42:01  <Ammler> Alberth: I see, the ini is just needed to build?
14:42:35  <Eddi|zuHause> Ammler: the ini files have the same stuff that was previously in settings.h
14:42:35  <Alberth> Eddi|zuHause: in fact, every INI file is a dialect, there is no official definition of the format
14:43:07  <Eddi|zuHause> Ammler: settings.h is now autogenerated from those files
14:43:29  <Ammler> well, at least php ini parser wasn't able to read/write openttd.cfg
14:44:18  <Ammler> iirc, specially the part with newgrfs
14:44:19  <Rubidium> what makes php's parser right?
14:44:23  <Alberth> not a surprise, given the lack of standardization :)
14:44:36  <Eddi|zuHause> Ammler: that was because of missing = at the end, right? i think that was fixed later
14:45:11  <Alberth> I am quite sure a lot of INI file readers will not read the new settings either
14:45:44  <Alberth> since section names are not unique
14:47:11  <Eddi|zuHause> which section?
14:47:14  <Ammler> Alberth: not possible to split settings.ini in multiple files, so e.g. patches could have their own ini file?
14:48:17  <Eddi|zuHause> patch settings need an own chunk, for better savegame compatibility
14:48:17  <Ammler> hmm, patching seems not the reason for the change :-)
14:49:09  <Eddi|zuHause> that, or the settings must be stored in the savegame by name, and invalid settings ignored
14:49:55  <Eddi|zuHause> the case that a patch needs bumping the savegame version just for adding a setting needs to be avoided
14:50:21  <Eddi|zuHause> then only real changes like cargodist or heightlevels need bumping savegame version

15:15:43  <Rubidium> the M doesn't necessarily get added, making joining work just fine
15:16:07  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: i'm not worried about multiplayer, i'm worried about long term compatibility of savegames. once a savegame was touched by a patch, it is currently almost impossible to get it compatibile with future trunk again
15:16:10  <Rubidium> and then we'll be getting the unreproducable desync reports
15:16:58  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: meaning lots of people stay away from patches, because they can't use their savegames afterwards
15:17:26  <Eddi|zuHause> the hurdle of losing savegame compatibility for one single setting is too high
15:18:20  <Rubidium> how many people actually run (simple) patched binaries?
15:18:37  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: too few, that's what i'm talking about.
15:18:58  <Rubidium> and how many would be using cargodist/heightlevels/whatever patch needs savegame bumps anyway?
15:19:34  <Rubidium> i.e. how many of the patch users are not patchpack/cargodist users?
15:19:39  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: that's a "don't care" for this consideration
15:20:51  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm talking about little things like "show town rating in name" or some variants of daylength
15:21:32  <Rubidium> show town rating in name => gui setting => does not need to modify savegame
15:21:37  <Eddi|zuHause> it would be fairly trivial to move these savegames back and forth, but it's blocked by the setting handling
15:22:11  <Rubidium> daylength on the other hand seems to be changing some value in any case
15:22:17  <Eddi|zuHause> maybe that wasn't the right example. but there are lots of patches which only modify savegame version because of a setting

15:23:16  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: i have been using a modified daylength with only changing the setting to non-stored for a long time
15:24:12  <Eddi|zuHause> that is the only way to keep it compatibile through trunk updates
15:24:26  <Eddi|zuHause> and daylength games tend to be long term
15:24:58  <Rubidium> you can, ofcourse, add the setting and such into a new chunk
15:25:37  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, and i was proposing that openttd prepares that new chunk, so a patcher only needs to fill out the file
15:26:03  <Rubidium> problem is, that if OpenTTD encounters a chunk it assumes it's from an unknown patched version and refuses to load it
15:26:51  <Rubidium> and we actually used that behaviour to our advantage to fix some bugs in stable branches
15:27:48  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: that need not change. as far as i understand what you are saying
15:27:50  <Rubidium> "marking" the newer stable savegames as unloadable by older stables (of the same branch), while retaining the ability to load all stables without loss of information into trunk
15:28:17  <Rubidium> ergo: adding a chunk will still make the savegame unable to load in newer trunk versions
15:28:48  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: the main scenario i am talking about is keeping alive a patch through an "svn up" which currently often conflicts on savegame version
15:29:32  <Eddi|zuHause> which means you lose either your patched savegame, or compatibility with savegames from newer trunk
15:29:44  <Rubidium> if you change the savegame version to $version + 1, then svn up will not cause a conflict
15:29:48  <Eddi|zuHause> a new chunk would avoid that
15:29:57  <Rubidium> unless we bumped it twice already in trunk
15:30:14  <Rubidium> the rest should just merge fine with subversion
15:30:28  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: it needs more than that
15:30:50  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: lots of patchers stay away from this concept, because it is too complicated to maintain
15:31:36  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: someone writing a patch has more important things to think about than that
15:31:40  <Rubidium> as if a: chunk that will be ignored, but for which you have to write your own saveload code will make it any better
15:32:47  <Rubidium> but oh... it won't be ignored in trunk, which you based your patch off... so it will be ignored in your version as well
15:32:51  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: that's why i say trunk should prepare everything, the patcher just needs to add his setting to patches.ini

15:48:38  <Rubidium> which in essence means that trunk would end up with supporting loading all those development savegame versions of those patched versions

15:54:11  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm talking about non-linear savegame versioning here. so savegame version wouldn't be decided by one number, but by some internal tree structure
15:55:03  <Eddi|zuHause> a setting would know the tree branch it is in, and savegame updating would work along this tree branch through merges to the root
15:55:09  <Rubidium> I don't see how that would be working
15:55:24  <Eddi|zuHause> it's difficult to describe
15:56:12  <Rubidium> especially when you have dozens of branches doing savegame bumps, and dozens of savegame bumps from trunk -> hundreds, if not thousands, of different savegame versions in your tree
15:56:28  <Rubidium> or I am totally misunderstanding the proposal
15:57:14  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't think the number of savegame bumps would explode. you'd still have one bump per new setting

15:57:39  <Eddi|zuHause> and maybe some intermediate bumps per merge
15:57:51  <Rubidium> but I guess that's a my glass ball malfunctioning; it keeps saying "dinner", and I haven't figured out how that applies to savegame versions
15:58:25  <Eddi|zuHause> maybe i should work on a draft... but that needs some time

18:26:07  <Alberth> no afaik
18:26:54  <Alberth> versions x > 0 mostly just contain backported fixes, no new features
18:27:16  <andythenorth> thanks
18:27:44  <Alberth> simplest way to check is to try 1.05 :)
18:28:14  <Alberth> ie if we added it, we certainly did not remove it again :)

18:29:43  <andythenorth> but a fair proportion of those are probably churn
18:30:07  <andythenorth> either that, or I only update grfs when they're on about 25k downloads :P

19:01:18  <confound> andythenorth: what are the tram tweaks?
19:02:02  <andythenorth> lower loading speed
19:02:07  <andythenorth> and rebalancing of costs
19:02:41  <andythenorth> some are cheaper to run, some more expensive
19:02:54  <andythenorth> the costs for different capacity are spread over a greater range
19:03:20  <andythenorth> I was finding small slow trams made losses, whereas large fast trams made way too much profit
19:04:27  <confound> makes sense
19:06:45  <confound> I found myself replacing a lot of smaller train lines with ishizuchis
19:10:42  <andythenorth> yeah, that's not 100% intended
19:10:53  <andythenorth> I might reduce capacity some more in future
19:10:58  <andythenorth> or power
19:19:36  <confound> one that made sense to me was a short route that handled a lot of wood
19:19:53  <confound> but it doesn't seem intentional that I should basically use them instead of trains for feeders
19:19:58  <confound> of medium length
19:20:21  <andythenorth> they're mostly intended as an alternative to trucks

21:00:20  <Bjarni> it did get a little delayed because somebody objected that I failed to meet the demands for graduation and I had to work to prove that she made a mistake and everything is ok
21:00:32  <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: maybe it's the kind of ... registered mail that needs to be picked up personally with an ID
21:00:46  <Zuu> They delever mail to homes here, but this is a more secure kind of mail that you have to go and pick up yourself.
21:01:17  <Eddi|zuHause> but they could check the ID at your place as well
21:01:32  <Bjarni> yeah but they usually need a signature for delivery
21:01:50  <Bjarni> and if nobody is at home when the mailman shows up, then you have to go pick it up
21:01:53  <Eddi|zuHause> signature is way more common than ID
21:01:56  <Bjarni> works the same way here
21:02:56  <Eddi|zuHause> signature can also be given by neighbours in some cases
21:03:20  <Bjarni> not here
21:03:33  <Bjarni> but it can be given by somebody else in the household
21:04:14  <Eddi|zuHause> this is common for packets here. the recipient will get a letter in his mail that the neighbour picked up the packet
21:04:16  <Bjarni> or at least they seem to accept it

21:05:46  * Bjarni wonders if it works like that in Queens
21:05:46  <Zuu> I don't think that would happen here, at least not in the cities. Maybe in the countryside where people actually might know their neighbours.
21:06:26  <Terkhen> good night
21:06:45  <Eddi|zuHause> that's quite possible that it's less common in cities

21:33:44  <Bjarni> you know people didn't really think it was a nice move for Germany not to join
21:33:58  <Eddi|zuHause> maybe some back-room strategist calculated "hmm, when Schröder in 2002 rejected taking part in iraq, he won the election right afterwards, maybe rejecting now will work again"

21:35:37  <Bjarni> but only after they had a written promise that their vote would not be used to target civilians..... which just shows they live in their own world
21:35:38  <Eddi|zuHause> it has to be decided every year
