06:03:43  <Terkhen> good morning

06:09:27  <Terkhen> hi andythenorth and planetmaker
06:14:43  <andythenorth> are pipelines done yet?
06:14:46  <andythenorth> NewTubes
06:19:24  <Terkhen> nope
06:21:34  <andythenorth> bah
06:21:50  <andythenorth> maybe I should remove oil from FIRS  :\
06:22:09  <Terkhen> why? oil is fun
06:22:17  * andythenorth would like pipelines
06:23:06  <andythenorth> maybe I/we should write a spec
06:24:06  <Terkhen> I'm not sure if pipelines would be fun, you only have to set them up and you are done
06:24:36  <andythenorth> they would be fun
06:24:39  <andythenorth> I think
06:24:47  <andythenorth> there would be two issues
06:25:08  <andythenorth> 1. pipelines occupy the tile, so they make routing more challenging
06:25:15  <andythenorth> 2. pipelines have a rated capacity
06:25:54  <andythenorth> they would be constructed like road / canal - no diagonals
06:26:04  <andythenorth> and if player wants to bury them they have to use a tunnel
06:26:23  <andythenorth> to change direction, they have to surface the pipeline
06:27:08  <andythenorth> not sure if junctions are allowed
06:29:01  <Terkhen> still sounds like "fire and forget" :P
06:30:40  <andythenorth> hmm
06:30:51  * andythenorth thinks other route types have that too
06:31:42  *** Netsplit <-> quits: PierreW, Rubidium
06:32:50  *** Netsplit over, joins: PierreW, Rubidium
06:37:50  * planetmaker would build pipelines refittable to coal - and then directly deliver it to the powerplant ;-)
06:38:09  <planetmaker> maybe also vehicles to town ;-)
06:43:57  *** Scaevolus [] has left #openttd []
06:45:01  <Terkhen> andythenorth: even with ships you at least have to decide which ship to use
06:46:12  *** amkoroew [] has joined #openttd
06:48:30  <planetmaker> ships = pipeline style / diameter?
06:49:02  <Prof_Frink> I built a pipeline back in the old TTDPatch days.
06:49:15  <Terkhen> kinda, yes
06:50:07  *** Qantourisc [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
06:55:48  *** Neon [] has joined #openttd
07:07:15  <andythenorth> pipelines can only carry one cargo
07:07:32  <andythenorth> and might only be routable from A->B
07:07:59  <andythenorth> so compared to trucks / ships, they might not be the most efficient way to transport cargo (per tile used)
07:08:09  <andythenorth> which makes them a more interesting tradeoff
07:10:58  *** KouDy [] has joined #openttd
07:20:24  <planetmaker> hm... only 3600 downloads of OpenGFX+Industries
07:20:58  <planetmaker> we don't yet use there 1.2. stuff only..
07:21:27  <planetmaker> which will explain the whopping 60 downloads of OpenGFX+Airports 0.2.1. ;-)
07:24:52  <Terkhen> we do :P
07:25:03  <Terkhen> oh wait, it was 1.1.1 only right?
07:25:40  <planetmaker> hm... I don't quite recall... :-D
07:26:31  <Terkhen> yes, it was 1.1.1 only, if it was 1.2.x I would have mentioned it in the release post
07:26:42  <Terkhen> we had no new posts after 0.3.4 either :P
07:26:43  <planetmaker> we have no version check in the source - or do I just miss it?
07:26:49  <Terkhen> it must be done already
07:26:55  <Terkhen> planetmaker: it will work with older versions
07:27:18  <planetmaker> only that is important really for downloads :-)
07:27:23  <Terkhen> hmm... but I don't remember if the industries using the town filter will not be built at all or can be built freely
07:27:41  <Terkhen> but I'm sure that I put the min version of OpenTTD in bananas
07:27:51  <Terkhen> not much people playing with 1.1.1 then? :P
07:31:10  *** sla_ro|master [~slaco@] has joined #openttd
07:31:18  <planetmaker> hm, dunno. There's probably many who only update very occasionally, like once a year for major versions
07:33:08  <andythenorth> industry sets don't get a lot of downloads quickly
07:33:31  <andythenorth> instead you should have made "Super Awesome Train, 1m ton capacity, 10,000 mph, running cost: 0"
07:33:44  <andythenorth> then you would get about 100k downloads in a month
07:34:36  <Terkhen> we should try that theory :P
07:34:52  *** TWerkhoven [] has joined #openttd
07:35:32  <planetmaker> andythenorth: we have that already ;-) - the logic engine ;-)
07:35:51  <planetmaker> it's capacity might be 0, though, too ;-)
07:36:07  <andythenorth> "Gigantic ships" was high in the list for a long time :P
07:36:58  <Terkhen> Super Awesome Train should also have awesome sprites :P
07:37:05  * planetmaker needs a sprite artists for engines, though ;-)
07:37:19  <planetmaker> for super old but awesome :-P
07:37:40  <andythenorth> it's invisible
07:38:04  <Terkhen> if they don't run at 16000 km/h and carry 65000 tons they might be awesome, but not super awesome
07:38:54  <planetmaker> :-)
07:40:28  *** bodis [] has joined #openttd
07:44:17  * __ln__ wants the Saturn V rocket as newgrf
07:45:25  <__ln__> 119 tons of goods to low-earth-orbit
07:45:40  <Prof_Frink> Running costs might be a bit steep.
07:46:19  <__ln__> maybe
07:46:29  <Terkhen> zero :)
07:46:47  <Terkhen> you just need to stop earth's rotation
07:48:08  <andythenorth> Terkhen: if you want high downloads, make "hover bus 2"
07:48:16  <andythenorth> or "bigger depots 2"
07:48:23  <andythenorth> hmm
07:48:28  <Terkhen> I have been thinking on hover bus 2 actually :)
07:48:35  <andythenorth> zephyris must be far and away the most downloaded grf author
07:48:41  <andythenorth> he has the top two sets
07:49:09  <andythenorth> + he drew >large amount of opengfx
07:49:14  <planetmaker> __ln__: *that*s something I'd like, too. In the form of a general thing like 'overseas port' or alike
07:49:25  <planetmaker> which trades (by theory) with non-map stuff
07:49:38  <andythenorth> planetmaker: you don't think that violates game world rules?
07:49:40  <planetmaker> though I'm not sure whether it would fit the game
07:49:49  <andythenorth> I'll add it to FIRS some time and we can test
07:49:58  <andythenorth> I think it has interesting scenario applications
07:50:21  <planetmaker> it might. But it'd need to accept or deliver more than just three cargos. But yes, we could test. Acceptance could be larger
07:50:29  <planetmaker> and supply... via CB could vary
07:50:38  <planetmaker> and yes, for scenarios it'd make sense
07:51:34  <Terkhen> given that it would need a lot of configuration and would be used mostly in scenarios, it might make sense to make it a FIRS addon
07:51:58  <Terkhen> hmm... and maybe for opengfx+ industries too :P
07:52:02  <__ln__> off-the-map international destinations would be nice
07:52:32  <planetmaker> acceptance via tiles is no issue. Delivery might be
07:52:49  *** Alberth [] has joined #openttd
07:52:52  *** mode/#openttd [+o Alberth] by ChanServ
07:52:52  <planetmaker> hm... might make sense as add-on indeed
07:53:03  <andythenorth> easier configuration that way
07:53:18  <Alberth> hi planetmaker, andythenorth
07:53:21  <andythenorth> it would need to know about which cargos will be available though
07:53:23  <andythenorth> hi Alberth
07:53:26  <planetmaker> hello Alberth
07:53:45  <planetmaker> andythenorth: testing for available cargos is feasible
07:53:56  * andythenorth would prefer pipelnes to ports still, if that was a choice :P
07:54:08  <andythenorth> seaport
07:54:10  <andythenorth> space port
07:54:21  <andythenorth> railroad tycoon had warehouses for land
07:54:29  <andythenorth> worked for gameplay, but was a bit odd
07:54:51  <andythenorth> teleport :P
07:54:58  <planetmaker> :-) also
07:55:07  <planetmaker> via town persistant storage :-P
07:55:37  <Terkhen> hi Alberth :)
07:55:59  <andythenorth> town persistent storage is becoming like some pseudo map array :P
07:56:12  <Alberth> hi Terkhen
07:56:14  <planetmaker> cargotype_available(cargotype) <-- one could even make a somewhat cargo independent industry newgrf ;-)
07:56:16  <andythenorth> if towns could also access each others' storage...
07:56:39  <andythenorth> planetmaker: I was thinking ports would be FIRS + opengfx industries compatible
07:56:52  <Alberth> andythenorth: yep, we are building a statefull second system running in parallel with the program. Have fun debugging
07:57:07  <planetmaker> andythenorth: yes, that'd be relatively easy
07:57:14  <Terkhen> yes, IMO it could be compatible with both FIRs and OpenGFX+ Industries
07:57:16  <Terkhen> FIRS*
07:57:21  <andythenorth> if it's seaports....we should fix the coast industry location bug / spec failure
07:57:46  <andythenorth>
08:03:34  <Terkhen> hmm... the industry limit is shared between different NewGRFs?
08:04:03  <planetmaker> yes
08:04:17  <planetmaker> there's 64 industries limit for the game afaik
08:04:26  <Terkhen> how many slots are free in FIRS?
08:04:31  <andythenorth> industries?
08:04:32  <andythenorth> enough
08:04:38  <planetmaker> yup
08:04:54  <andythenorth> @calc 64-48
08:04:54  <DorpsGek> andythenorth: 16
08:04:57  <andythenorth> enough
08:05:00  <planetmaker> :-)
08:05:01  <Terkhen> yes :)
08:05:10  <planetmaker> OpenGFX+Industries has that problem neither :-P
08:05:11  <Terkhen> I was thinking on completely configurable ports
08:05:17  <planetmaker> only extra is the shop iirc
08:05:32  <Terkhen> for example: add a port that accepts X, Y and produces Z
08:06:31  <Terkhen> "produces"
08:06:53  <planetmaker> accept could be (nearly) everything
08:06:57  <planetmaker> just make it big enough
08:07:09  <planetmaker> each tile can accept 3 products
08:08:57  <Terkhen> production based on amount accepted?
08:09:32  <andythenorth> try it
08:10:30  <Terkhen> I should be working :P
08:10:49  <Terkhen> planning stuff is more fun, though
08:11:18  <planetmaker> shall I prepare you a new project, Terkhen ?
08:11:24  <Terkhen> no :P
08:11:27  <planetmaker> :-D
08:11:59  <Terkhen> even when I finish this, I'll have my hands full of OpenTTD projects already for all the summer, if not even for longer
08:12:16  <planetmaker> meh :-P
08:12:21  <planetmaker> same here
08:21:25  <andythenorth> there is plenty to finish FIRst
08:22:02  <planetmaker> ;-)
08:22:03  <planetmaker> indeed
08:23:17  <Terkhen> :P
08:23:50  <Terkhen> and I still want to code the necessary stuff for starting a mars newgrf :)
08:26:26  <planetmaker> he :-P
08:26:45  <planetmaker> I shall be very interested in a future theme like that, too :-)
08:26:49  <Alberth> but making new planets is the job of planetmaker ;)
08:26:58  <planetmaker> with vac trains... we have some fitting grf already
08:27:06  <planetmaker> though it would be considered vice versa there :-P
08:27:21  <Terkhen>
08:27:44  <Terkhen> that's a list of stuff that needs to be done before even starting on the NewGRF :P
08:27:51  <Terkhen> a few things are not strictly needed though
08:28:05  <planetmaker> Terkhen: I'd keep water wells or maybe rename them to water plants
08:28:23  <planetmaker> on the surface... yes... sand
08:28:31  <planetmaker> possibly
08:28:33  <Alberth> ice!
08:28:42  <Terkhen> permafrost mining(ice) -> water treatment plant(water) -> town
08:28:44  <planetmaker> yes... not that abundant
08:29:04  <Terkhen> I have not thought much about chains though :)
08:33:26  <Terkhen> another big decision would be the "goal" of mars games
08:33:32  *** Amis [] has joined #openttd
08:33:44  <Terkhen> it could be the same one than with normal games, or it could aim to town growth

08:34:52  <Terkhen> it would give "found a town" a meaning ingame :)
08:34:55  *** mode/#openttd [+v Terkhen] by ChanServ
08:35:30  <Terkhen> but it is probably not worth to add all of those mechanisms just for a newgrf
08:37:15  <Alberth> you'd end up with a goal gui, like in that wiki page
08:39:03  <Terkhen> yes
08:39:32  <Terkhen> goal stuff is probably secondary to the mars newgrf, but it would be nice to have
08:40:22  <Terkhen> I had an idea for goal scripts a few days ago; I had no time to write it down and think about it so I'm not sure if it would be good :P

10:15:56  <Lyzio> wtich the program want
10:17:32  <planetmaker> there's a server config web interface?
10:18:04  <Lyzio>
10:18:36  <planetmaker> I'm afraid that version from 2007  won't work anymore
10:18:36  *** Pulec [] has joined #openttd
10:18:41  <planetmaker> the config file format changed
10:18:44  <Lyzio> ah
10:19:46  <Lyzio> is there any site to use to generate a functional config for a dedicated server?
10:20:52  <planetmaker> there currently is no web interface I know... of course you can always copy a cfg to the server and reload the cfg
10:21:42  <planetmaker> But especially NewGRF config is... not practical. I do that by means of uploading savegames
10:24:39  <planetmaker> But if you care about creating a web interface for that, Lyzio : <-- there's one or two such projects which people started but never finished
10:40:16  <Ammler> Lyzio: easiest is to configure game locally, upload and start
10:40:42  <Ammler> then use rcon (or autopilot)
10:41:06  <Lyzio> autopilot i havnt tried, maby i should do that

15:14:59  <andythenorth> you probably get a bigger allocation anyway
15:15:05  <andythenorth> 28' is not to be wasted here
15:15:49  <Terkhen> want to share part of my 38°C? :P
15:17:17  <Lyzio> were to change what NewGRF my server uses? I use them on my on game from were i copied the config file
15:17:27  <Lyzio> is there another file wich states the newgrf
15:19:30  <planetmaker> he, lol. The shadow of a flying aircraft is also visible in the hangar below it ;-)
15:20:27  <planetmaker> of course the server needs to have available all newgrfs which a config defines
15:20:35  <andythenorth> check out what the shadow does at oil rigs :P
15:20:45  <planetmaker> hehe @ andythenorth :)
15:20:52  <andythenorth> Terkhen: I normally celebrate sunny days by staying in and coding :P
15:21:19  <andythenorth> "It's always sunny in ottd"
15:21:26  <planetmaker> Lyzio: if the newgrfs are not available, none will be used
15:21:42  <Lyzio> i have the newgrfs on the server
15:21:56  <Rubidium> Terkhen: I guess my GPU'd like to switch
15:22:35  <planetmaker> Lyzio: and you copied the cfg there while the server was NOT running?
15:23:04  <planetmaker> (or you copied it there, used the 'reload config' rcon command and then started a new game?)
15:23:10  <Ammler> do not "share" the cfg
15:23:20  <Ammler> use the save directly
15:23:41  <Lyzio> yes
15:23:53  <Lyzio> the cfg have the newgrf in the buttom, the one from the server
15:24:04  <Lyzio> but when i start up the game i dont get any changes
15:24:25  <Alberth> you start a NEW game, right?  (ie no loading of a save game)
15:24:47  <Lyzio> i use openttd -D -f to start it
15:25:15  <Ammler> use -g <save> :-)
15:25:53  <Lyzio> but i want it to generate a new map
15:26:00  <Lyzio> not a savedgam,e
15:26:15  <Ammler> ok, that is very advanced stuff, though
15:26:42  <planetmaker> Lyzio: also the path to the newgrfs must be correct
15:27:57  <Ammler> you could use cfg template from our pack
15:29:03  <Lyzio> Ammler the cfg works for everything but the newgrf, wich works on my computer and i have copied the whole directory direclty from that one
15:30:03  <planetmaker> can you paste the newgrf section somewhere (not here, use a paste service)?
15:30:32  <planetmaker> and what's the output you openttd gives when starting the server?=
15:30:33  <Lyzio>
15:30:50  <Lyzio> dont get anyoutput from the server, it just says its started
15:31:23  <planetmaker> try ./openttd -D -d grf=3
15:31:40  <planetmaker> a server always gives some output upon start
15:31:55  <planetmaker> and if its only map creation process
15:31:58  <Lyzio> /.openttd$ openttd -D -f
15:31:58  <Lyzio> Loading dedicated server...
15:31:58  <Lyzio> - Forked to background with pid 2319
15:32:03  <Lyzio> thats all i get
15:32:33  <planetmaker> try ./openttd -D -d grf=3 | tee -a logfile
15:32:46  <planetmaker> and paste the contents of logfile
15:33:22  <Terkhen> heh, I'm scared to check my computer's temperature :P
15:34:39  <Rubidium> Terkhen: can't be much worse than mine ;)
15:34:58  <Terkhen> :)
15:35:59  <planetmaker> Lyzio: or... just leave out the fork command
15:36:20  <planetmaker> that's removing all useful output from your eyes
15:37:12  *** Adambean [] has joined #openttd
15:38:24  <Ammler> Lyzio: I just meant, it is much easier to create a game locally then upload to server as trying to get a game running on a server
15:38:30  <Ammler> (with newgrfs)
15:38:47  <Lyzio> Ammler that i have done, it works localy
15:38:50  <Lyzio> but not on the server
15:39:04  <Ammler> yep, but you synced the cfg, instead the save
15:39:28  <planetmaker> Lyzio: why doesn't uploading to  a server work? That's easier than editing the cfg
15:39:41  <Lyzio> dont know
15:40:16  <Lyzio> well, other time for that, now i have som other things to take care of
15:40:19  *** Lyzio [] has quit [Quit: - nbs-irc 2.39 - -]
15:40:22  <planetmaker> you're basically saying tha copying a cfg to the server works while copying a sav doesn't
15:40:23  <Ammler> also maybe you should download online content on the server
15:40:45  <planetmaker> if loading a sav doesn't work, I'm not optimistic you'll manage to create a newgrf game via cfg changes
15:40:57  <Ammler> indeed
15:41:24  <planetmaker> basically: loading a save is easier than getting it from the cfg as it needs no configuration work
15:41:26  <Ammler> and be aware, that changes you make for a game don't go the cfg without save_config
15:41:28  <planetmaker> but the same newgrf base
15:41:58  <planetmaker> make sure you have the server obtain the bananas download, either via rcon commands or just scp it from your local machine

16:21:44  * andythenorth wonders
16:22:00  <andythenorth> could NewBreakdowns be combined with NewVehicleEffects
16:22:01  <andythenorth> ?
16:23:43  <planetmaker> maybe
16:24:02  <planetmaker> though one is game-driven the other vehicle-driven
16:24:04  <planetmaker> sort-of
16:25:37  <Terkhen> hmm... I don't know what makes more sense for those: NewGRF implementation or ingame implementation
16:25:46  <andythenorth> both could require an effect vehicle re-implementation
16:25:56  <andythenorth> personally I think full newgrf effect vehicles is overkill
16:26:01  <andythenorth> and drawing them would be a PITA
16:26:08  <andythenorth> the quality is likely to be low
16:26:21  <planetmaker> drawing them would be required anyway...
16:26:33  <andythenorth> but vehicle movement effects and breakdown effects should be able to better use current effect vehicles
16:26:40  <andythenorth> wrt placement etc
16:27:05  <Terkhen> what is lacking from the current vehicle effect implementation in newgrf?
16:27:38  <andythenorth> control over position
16:27:44  <andythenorth> ability to have n effect vehicles
16:28:02  <andythenorth> ability to control stop/start of placement individually for positions 0:n
16:28:09  <andythenorth> imagine a ship with 3 funnels
16:28:12  <planetmaker> position is (somewhat) implemented
16:28:15  <andythenorth> or a diesel engine with 2 exhausts
16:28:28  <andythenorth> needs z
16:28:29  <andythenorth> :P
16:28:34  <planetmaker> :-) yup
16:28:37  <andythenorth> and possibility of n
16:29:40  <planetmaker> that actually might rather ask for "type of effect vehicles" and the possibility to define a custom one for specific vehicles
16:30:03  <planetmaker> e.g. via a separate action0 property which gives the ID of the effect vehicle

17:44:47  *** frosch123 [] has joined #openttd
17:46:01  <Eddi|zuHause> we should pobably revise our calculated TE values. some don't seem to make sense
17:46:18  *** Adambean` [] has joined #openttd
17:46:32  <Eddi|zuHause> e.g. why would the BR 52 and BR 42 have the same TE, when one is quite a bit lighter
17:52:55  *** Adambean [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:04:27  <michi_cc> Eddi|zuHause: Total weight isn't the important value though, it's the friction weight (which is often different with steamers). Wikipedia has a different friction weight for both of them, but steam is special case anyway, as you'd also have to consider the max piston pressure, so the TE could theoretically still be the same.
18:05:42  <Eddi|zuHause> anyway, some of the values are probably off
18:07:03  <Eddi|zuHause> i put the 232 (DR 132) into the DBAG-schema for heavy freight, if that's alright
18:08:16  <michi_cc> mb did that as well, so I guess we can get away with it as well :)
18:08:43  <Eddi|zuHause> well, only after 1990
18:09:04  <Eddi|zuHause> which is the same thing as the 143 (DR 243)
18:09:33  <michi_cc> The 143 was actually built after 1990 though.
18:09:45  *** ctibor [~quassel@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:10:00  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, but the 232 is still in heavy use
18:10:15  <Eddi|zuHause> it would be a bad idea to not include it
18:10:47  *** ctibor [~quassel@] has joined #openttd
18:13:04  <michi_cc> There's also the DR 250 (155) which has still has relevance as it has six axles and thus a higher TE than the usual Bo'Bo'-type engines.
18:15:20  <Eddi|zuHause> phase out the 151 in 1990, put the 155 in?
18:15:38  <michi_cc> And 1980-1990 looks very empty compared to before and after. There isn't even a non S-Bahn eletric MU..
18:17:01  <Eddi|zuHause> not really my area of expertise
18:17:35  <michi_cc> After 1990 we have some more new engines, so we don't necessarily need the 155 for pure DB timeline.
18:20:09  <michi_cc> The problem with that era is simply that the DB didn't buy new engines and instead continued running a lot of the older junk.
18:27:36  <Eddi|zuHause> the 155 fits neatly in the "every 10 years" plan
18:28:56  *** Scuddles [] has quit []
18:30:17  <Eddi|zuHause> we have now 4 engines in 1990, 4 in 1996/97 and 4 in 1999-2001
18:30:52  <Eddi|zuHause> but there's definitely something missing in the 1980's
18:49:55  <michi_cc> DBSetXL hasn't got anything more either (except the 181, but the stats aren't different and multi-voltage isn't an issue here) besides that mb cheated and introduced the 155 and 232 before 1990, which isn't really an option with a proper DR timeline.
18:55:22  *** Zuu [] has joined #openttd
19:06:37  *** KouDy1 [] has joined #openttd
19:07:45  * Zuu wonders why the English string for STR_ERROR_TRAIN_START_NO_POWER does not use "the train". It says "Train has no power". Shouldn't it say "The train has no power" when speaking about a specific train?
19:08:02  <andythenorth> Doesn't need to
19:08:03  <Eddi|zuHause> sounds weird
19:08:11  <andythenorth> English can easily drop 'The' in that context
19:08:14  <Eddi|zuHause> i'd say "this train"
19:08:58  <Zuu> It causes weired translations when people assume that it works fine without the "the" counterpart in Swedish where it really looks very funny.
19:09:28  <Zuu> But if it is okay in English, it can't really be blamed on English :-)
19:09:38  <andythenorth> translation is not 1:1 :)
19:10:35  *** KouDy [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
19:11:27  <Zuu> Yes, that's why I wondered if it was okay in English to drop the "the" even if a specific train was adressed or if I had missunderstood the usage of the string.
19:11:50  <Alberth> a specific train would be "that train" imho
19:12:03  <Alberth> (or "this train")
19:12:05  <andythenorth> could effect vehicles work similar to articulated building instructions?
19:12:10  <andythenorth> loop over n ranges
19:12:17  <planetmaker> Zuu: that's a translation issue then ;-)
19:12:19  <andythenorth> return FF or invalid to terminate loop
19:12:52  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: effect vehicles probably have a movement counter like normal vehicles
19:13:05  <andythenorth> I mean for a vehicle to specify n effect vehicles
19:13:09  <andythenorth> with positions
19:13:18  <andythenorth> not sure how to control start / stop
19:13:27  <andythenorth> maybe it's not needed
19:13:29  <andythenorth> hmm
19:13:31  <Eddi|zuHause> ah
19:13:56  <andythenorth> ideally putting values in a register as part of cb would be easiest for x/y/z
19:14:10  <Alberth> I would expect creation == start, and destroy == stop
19:14:23  <andythenorth> maybe start/stop is misleading
19:14:35  <andythenorth> I was thinking of offsetting front / rear funnels for example
19:14:38  <andythenorth> but it's not needed
19:14:48  <andythenorth> what is needed is control over smoke threshhold
19:14:55  <andythenorth> e.g. what speeds trigger it
19:15:04  <andythenorth> ships don't show smoke nearly enough
19:15:13  <andythenorth> that's a simple varact 2 check
19:15:25  <andythenorth> so one new cb...
19:16:24  <andythenorth> is a register an acceptable way to specify x/yz/
19:16:25  <andythenorth> ?
19:16:37  <andythenorth> the return value of the cb would be an ID of an effect vehicle to use
19:17:04  <andythenorth> effect vehicles are not envisaged as newgrf provided, openttd provisioned only
19:17:19  <andythenorth> but a cb like this would leave the way clear for that in future if madness prevails :)
19:17:43  <Eddi|zuHause> bad idea. if you extend the spec like this, you should allow for newgrf-effect-vehicles as well
19:18:09  <andythenorth> bad why?
19:18:20  <andythenorth> in principle, or because newgrf-effect-vehicles are desirable?
19:18:37  <Eddi|zuHause> a hardcoded ID will bite in your ass once more than one newgrf provides effect vehicles
19:18:51  <Eddi|zuHause> so you'll need a translation-table-like structure
19:19:13  <andythenorth> hmm
19:19:22  <andythenorth> can't we set a bit for 'original' or translation table?
19:19:45  <Alberth> spec should allow it imho, openttd may then just implement it partly, and extend later
19:19:51  <Eddi|zuHause> the grf might be able to check whether it has a translation table
19:20:15  <andythenorth> I think newgrf effects are just a step too far
19:20:19  <andythenorth> and impose work
19:20:28  <andythenorth> but ymmv etc
19:20:39  <Zuu> Alberth: Hmm, true. I was more refering to specific/unspecific wording. In Swedish you bend the train-word rather than putting "the" infront.
19:21:18  <Zuu> "that train" would be both "that" + bending the train. Eg. "that the train" :-p
19:22:16  <Eddi|zuHause> Zuu: we certainly can't tell you how to do a translation into your native language
19:22:30  <Zuu> Eddi|zuHause: I know
19:22:33  <Alberth> Zuu: concepts of different languages are problably never exactly the same, hence you need to slightly adapt the sentence as you translate
19:23:04  <Eddi|zuHause> translating a sentence like this without knowing the context is probably a really bad idea
19:23:21  <Zuu> I was just explaining why I suggested "the" rather than thinking that "that" might be better.
19:24:24  <Alberth> thanks for the explanation :)
