07:39:19  <BartHoning> If I use nmlc to create my own grf, all goes well. Untill I try to create a helicopter:  Unknown identifier 'AIRCRAFT_TYPE_SMALL'. Wiki tells: http://newgrf-specs.tt-wiki.net/wiki/NML:Vehicles#Plane_properties

07:44:33  <BartHoning> has anyone tried creating a helicopter? setting just 'is_helicopter' to 'AIRCRAFT_TYPE_HELICOPTER does not work: it still seems to be a plane..

07:44:59  *** mode/#openttd [+o Belugas] by ChanServ
07:46:17  <BartHoning> and as soon as I set 'is_large' to AIRCRAFT_TYPE_SMALL, nmlc complains about not knowing AIRCRAFT_TYPE_SMALL.... ?
07:49:54  <planetmaker> it is ...PORT_...
07:50:33  <planetmaker> hm...
07:50:34  <planetmaker> no
07:50:59  <planetmaker> do you have the code?
07:51:18  <BartHoning>         is_helicopter:			AIRCRAFT_TYPE_HELICOPTER;
07:51:18  <BartHoning> 	is_large:			AIRCRAFT_TYPE_SMALL;
07:51:20  <planetmaker> i.e. a file I could try compile to a grf?
07:51:34  <BartHoning> does not compile Unknown identifier 'AIRCRAFT_TYPE_SMALL'
07:52:17  <BartHoning> erm...
07:52:33  <planetmaker> and which NML version do you use?
07:53:07  <BartHoning> r1653 (pil 1.1.7, ply 3.4)
07:53:42  <BartHoning> I know the grf is basically allright, it flies perfectly as a plane
07:57:51  *** pjpe [ae5f42fd@ircip4.mibbit.com] has quit [Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client]
08:00:54  <planetmaker> so... do you now expect me to write my own plane or do you make it easy for me to test and give me yours?

08:07:54  <BartHoning> There is a zip with the example I followed from the wiki in it. Graphics are not done at all etc.
08:10:38  <BartHoning> I adjusted it, to create a plane, that worked fine (flying truck, lol) but since I am trying to create a zep, I thought it would be better to see it as a helicopter.
08:10:42  <planetmaker> AIRCRAFT_size_SMALL instead of _type_
08:11:52  <BartHoning> ah, ok, ill try that..

08:15:18  <planetmaker> in caps, though
08:17:55  <BartHoning> Yes, it does compile allright, but the new version still behaves like a normal airplane?
08:18:07  <BartHoning> and not like a helicopter? Hmmm..
08:18:28  <planetmaker> hm... still as plane
08:19:37  <planetmaker> right. It's an NML bug. Constants for is_helicopter are swapped
08:19:54  <planetmaker> for now use 0 as property value
08:20:02  <peter1138> heh
08:20:41  *** DayDreamer [~DayDreame@94.142.234.1] has joined #openttd
08:23:19  <planetmaker> if you use NML from a repository, it's fixed now, BartHoning
08:24:01  <planetmaker> alternatively, update NML in about 8 hours
08:25:27  <BartHoning> it works fine as a helicopter now :)
08:26:06  <BartHoning> is there any way to remove the spinning-rotor effect? (since I am trying to create a blimp)

09:13:43  <TheHog> Terkhen, planetmaker: could you please take a look at my 2-feeder patch again? http://bugs.openttd.org/task/4154
09:14:18  <TheHog> I hope I can convince you both to accept and commit the patch.. Yexo's standpoint is clear

09:15:40  <TheHog> the latest patch only kicks in if the vehicle is 'transfering && loading' at a station.. the config which currently isn't used because of the current 2-way feeding 'bug'

09:28:57  <Terkhen> I don't get the code, I never checked that part in detail
09:29:26  <Terkhen> what does it do? it uses the vehicle order list to decide if cargo can be picked or not?
09:30:48  <TheHog> indeed
09:31:29  <TheHog> the cargo itselves decided if it is allowed to be loaded on the vehicle based uppon the order list of the vehicle
09:31:44  <TheHog> only if the vehicle is transfering and loading at the current station
09:32:33  <TheHog> if the cargo was just loaded at a station from the order list, or it original from such station,.. then it is not loaded
09:34:11  <TheHog> Yexo's standpoint is that it does not fix all situations and that is true, however it fixes most of all feeding cases so I would like to see it committed
09:34:20  <TheHog> to fix it all we need cargodst
09:35:16  <planetmaker> IMHO Yexo's argument is quite valid. Fixing it for some but not for all cases will only make solutions like cargod*st more difficult
09:35:31  <Terkhen> yes, I said that it would conflict with future destination patches which also fix the issue
09:35:42  <planetmaker> ok, maybe you did :-)
09:35:43  <Terkhen> you might want to ask michi_cc or fonsinchen about this
09:36:24  <TheHog> why them?
09:36:37  <planetmaker> they write the cargod*st patches
09:36:38  <Terkhen> michi_cc develops YACD, fonsinchen develops cargodist
09:36:48  <TheHog> k
09:37:20  <TheHog> but cargodist is so much different than the original game
09:37:54  <TheHog> this patch is only a fix for a often reported bug

09:38:24  <TheHog> someone playing with cargodist will need to learn how to play it all over again
09:38:42  <planetmaker> it would just move the bug reports to the left-out edge cases
09:40:45  <TheHog> how far is cargodist from finished?
09:41:04  <Terkhen> it is possible that the code of a future destination code committed to trunk can be used to fix this issue in normal games too, but the commit of your code means that any future destination patch must either remove the code, work around it or use it even if it is not ideal
09:42:01  <Terkhen> or "do not commit something that will be changed or removed in the future"
09:43:45  <TheHog> ok.. then hopefully fonsinchen has time to talk with me about this
09:43:48  <TheHog> or michi_cc
09:44:02  <TheHog> maybe we can merge both with my patch so they don't conflict
09:47:34  <Eddi|zuHause> well, technically, either of these patches have the ability to disable the destinations, so the transfer problem would still exist then
09:48:29  <TheHog> then my patch would help in that case also I think..
09:49:03  <TheHog> let me study the yacd and cargodst code tonight and I hope I can contact michi_cc and fonsinchen soon
09:49:28  <Terkhen> in that case... do we have two separate methods or do we try to adapt the code of the destination patch to the "no destination" case?
09:51:35  <TheHog> I think we should adapt the code..
09:52:05  <TheHog> it's not that complex so I guess it is easily merged with the cargdst and yacd code in the 'no destination' case

12:24:07  <krinn> hi all
12:24:23  <krinn> i have a "problem" with a bridge
12:25:20  <krinn> if the owner is a companyID and the company is dead, owner==-1 but still altering the bridge with AIBuild.BuildBridge return a ERR_OWNED_BY_ANOTHER_COMPANY
12:25:37  <krinn> while a town bridge also return own==-1 but it work on this one
12:26:08  <krinn> it's also strange because when company is dead && bridge.owner==-1 i cannot change the bridge but the game allow me to destroy the bridge
12:26:29  <krinn> i would have expect: when ==-1 you can destroy or rebuild over it
12:26:45  <Eddi|zuHause> that's probably a bug... somewhere checking OWNER_TOWN and OWNER_NONE is inconsistent
12:28:07  <krinn> kinda weird as it looks like for openttd the companyID is now dead and it's ok to destroy it, but when trying to rebuild it, openttd remind the old companyID is the owner and refuse
12:40:38  <krinn> i found the bad one:
12:41:01  <krinn> 	static bool BuildBridge(AIVehicle::VehicleType vehicle_type, BridgeID bridge_id, TileIndex start, TileIndex end);
12:41:01  <krinn>  ->  * @exception AIError::ERR_OWNED_BY_ANOTHER_COMPANY
12:41:12  <krinn> this one fail
12:41:23  <Yexo> you can overbuild bridges if the owner is either your own company or a town.
12:41:38  <Yexo> note that OWNER_TOWN is different from OWNER_NONE
12:41:44  <krinn> but not if noone own it ?
12:41:46  <Eddi|zuHause> try this: www.informatik.uni-halle.de/~krause/tunnelbridge_owner_none.diff
12:42:09  <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: yes, but it's inconsistent
12:42:26  <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: if you can remove it and build a new bridge, you should be able to convert one as well
12:42:45  <Yexo> Eddi|zuHause: I completely agree with you that the current behavior is buggy
12:43:01  <Yexo> your patch looks good at first sight, just haven't checked it enough
12:43:11  <krinn> it's just i have no way to see that bridge is own by someone, as AITile.GetOwner return -1 for both case (town/dead company)
12:44:19  <Eddi|zuHause> maybe this is better: www.informatik.uni-halle.de/~krause/tunnelbridge_owner_none_2.diff
12:44:33  <Eddi|zuHause> (i hope that it does what i think it does, i haven't tested it either
12:44:36  <Eddi|zuHause> )
12:45:05  <krinn> what are value for OWNER_TOWN & OWNER_NONE ?
12:45:21  <krinn> because as-is your patch might attrib the new bridge to me, while for now
12:45:37  <krinn> if the bridge is to a town, he will be upgrade but still the town will own it
12:45:48  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, that would still be the case
12:46:21  <Eddi|zuHause> src/company_type.h:     OWNER_TOWN      = 0x0F, ///< A town owns the tile, or a town is expanding
12:46:23  <Eddi|zuHause> src/company_type.h:     OWNER_NONE      = 0x10, ///< The tile has no ownership
12:47:23  <krinn> looks even more logic so: i upgrade a bridge own by noone, so the result will be mine
12:47:32  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
12:47:55  <krinn> lol can't believe how fast you fix that one Eddi|zuHause :)
12:48:25  <Eddi|zuHause> well it _is_ still untested...
12:48:43  <krinn> maybe, but the change appears really clear
12:50:01  <Eddi|zuHause> if you can't express a feature in <10 lines, it might not be the right way to do it :)
12:50:21  <krinn> :)
12:53:47  <krinn> it's funny i never saw it, but even humans are affect so :)
12:54:09  <krinn> never saw it while playing (i must use too much the buldozer)
12:54:43  <Yexo> krinn / eddi: if nobody does it before me I'll properly test and commit that fix tonight
12:54:58  <Yexo> right now I'm too busy with the new codecup competition
12:55:18  <krinn> test is easy, run an ai let it build a road bridge, restart the ai and as human try to rebuild a bridge over it
12:55:40  <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: i am too busy preparing for my mother's birthday, so i probably won't test it...

15:12:22  <krinn> when creating a wagon in a depot, first one i get a valid vehicleID for it, but next ones, it fail for a reason i don't get, the wagons are create, just the AIVehicle.IsValidVehicle answer then false, got a clue?

15:42:56  <krinn> there something really wrong with that : if (!AIObject::DoCommand(depot, engine_id, 0, ::GetCmdBuildVeh(type), NULL, &AIInstance::DoCommandReturnVehicleID)) return VEHICLE_INVALID;
15:43:51  <krinn> doc says to check the return value againt AIVehicle.IsValidVehicle, for first one it work, but others ones it fail, they get attach to the first one and i suppose the return value is then the uint of the wagon and not the vehicleID

15:50:28  <Eddi|zuHause> sorry, that one is outside my area of expertise
15:53:02  <krinn> hard to handle just to build some wagons :)
15:54:18  <Yexo> krinn: if you build a wagon two things can happen:
15:54:55  <Yexo> 1) There is only a single engine (possible with wagons attached) in the depot, your new wagon will be automatically attached to this engine. The returned VehicleID is invalid for your AI
15:55:28  <Yexo> 2) There are either no or multiple engines. Your new wagon will be in a new chain. The returned VehicleID is valid
15:55:51  <krinn> well, what i see here is
15:56:04  <krinn> 1) i have train with 1 wagon but new wagons aren't attach to it

15:56:28  <Yexo> are you using any newgrfs? They might block attaching new wagons
15:56:28  <Eddi|zuHause> the what window?
15:56:37  <krinn> 2) now that a new wagon is there, the AIVehicle.IsValidVehicle fail because i no more get a vehicleID but i think the wagon number
15:56:47  <Yexo> in that case you could end up in situation 2), in that case you should get a valid VehicleID as return value
15:56:55  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: current ranking
15:56:59  <krinn> i do use them yexo, but i test my wagon and all is fine for that
15:57:17  <Eddi|zuHause> guess i have not looked at that in ages...
15:57:26  <Eddi|zuHause> it's kinda boring when there is only one company
15:57:41  <Yexo> krinn: I don't understand your actual problem then
15:58:04  <krinn> that next wagon create report failure because i get an invalid vehicleID
15:58:47  <Eddi|zuHause> i think you have a misconception about what the return value means
15:59:04  <krinn> first one == validVehicleID next ones = invalidVehicleID (but i have some id return that isn't the value of an invalid vehicle ID, so i suppose some internal id for the wagon)
15:59:20  *** andythenorth [~Andy@host109-153-144-163.range109-153.btcentralplus.com] has joined #openttd
15:59:26  <andythenorth> George: hi hi
15:59:33  <Yexo> the value you get is a VehicleID as used internally by the game
15:59:43  <Yexo> however AIs are restricted in which IDs are valid for them
15:59:51  <Yexo> only the ID of the first part of a train is considered valid for AIs
16:00:11  <Yexo> but next ones are attached to your first one, right?
16:00:18  <krinn> so this is bad : The VehicleID of the new vehicle, or an invalid VehicleID when it failed. Check the return value using IsValidVehicle
16:00:22  <Yexo> if so, you can use the VehicleID of the first part to access the others
16:01:08  <Yexo> yes, that's bad

16:12:53  <andythenorth> not sure if they are what you need
16:12:59  <andythenorth> they are in ISR stations
16:13:05  <George> In operating?
16:13:21  <andythenorth> I'll make a screenshot
16:13:51  <George> I asked about one that is in operation
16:13:59  <andythenorth> the front loader is animated in ISR
16:14:49  <George> it has / direction and faced to player AFAIR
16:15:45  <andythenorth> yes
16:15:57  <krinn> quite hard as i don't know the vehicleID the wagon is then attach to
16:16:11  <andythenorth> there is also \ direction
16:16:12  <George> And I need something to operate the rock
16:16:18  <andythenorth> hmm
16:16:36  <George> That mean it has to be faced FROM the player
16:17:45  <andythenorth> George: http://tt-foundry.com/misc/excavator.png
16:17:49  <andythenorth> this is a log loader

16:18:14  <Yexo> krinn: what would you think about a change to OpenTTD so newly build rail wagons are never attached to anything?
16:18:30  <Yexo> that means you'll always get a valid VehicleID as return value
16:18:47  <krinn> it would really help
16:18:50  <andythenorth> George: that one *is* layered psd with each part on a layer
16:18:54  <krinn> or gave us the internal wagon id
16:18:55  <andythenorth> I'll send you psd
16:19:29  <Yexo> I'd rather not do that, since that will complicate the rest of the API
16:19:42  <krinn> but it's hard to solve as-is right now
16:19:51  <krinn> if i want create 1 wagon, refit it
16:20:01  <krinn> how can i know where is my wagon ?
16:20:11  <George> andythenorth: this is a log loader.  It does not look like a mine excavator :( It is small
16:20:20  <krinn> it might get attach to an engine that is there, might be attach to aother previous wagon i create...
16:21:05  <krinn> i could of course seek out every vehicleID i found in that depot, this still won't tell me where my wagon is gone :)
16:21:08  <George> andythenorth: I'll send you psd  Thank you
16:21:42  <andythenorth> George: you need a big face shovel or such?

16:22:35  <krinn> if you have 3 vehicle: build a wagon -> where is the wagon ? for now the solve would be check all vehicleID in the depot and record their length, compare them, bigger one got the wagon, and then lol assume last wagon is the newest one
16:22:43  <George> andythenorth: Yes
16:22:50  <krinn> then detach it, refit it, and attach it to the good vehicle i wish it to be
16:23:45  <krinn> not really a "simple" way to just build a new wagon in a depot :P
16:24:02  <Yexo> I know, hence my proposal to change the behavior
16:24:27  <krinn> i agree, new engine should always get a new vehicleID
16:24:28  <andythenorth> George: if it was a lot bigger it might be too big?  http://tt-foundry.com/misc/mine.png
16:24:31  <Yexo> I'm already convinced it should be changed somehow, just busy with something else right now
16:24:36  <krinn> and let the ai attach it where it wish

16:26:40  <George> I didn't say it shoul be much bigger. I said it should look bigger to fit with your http://tt-foundry.com/sets/heavy_equipment trucks
16:27:04  <andythenorth> hmm
16:27:14  <andythenorth> sometimes it's possible to scale up with pixel art
16:27:21  * andythenorth will try
16:29:10  <andythenorth> George: does it *need* to be animated?  (and if so would you draw the needed frames)?
16:29:50  <krinn> Yexo, the most simpler solve would be having a function that gave the vehicleID a UnitNumber is attach to
16:29:53  <andythenorth> it scales up ok to 130% http://tt-foundry.com/misc/mine_2.png
16:30:00  <andythenorth> I can clean up some pixels by hand
16:30:10  <krinn> like this one, but invert : http://noai.openttd.org/docs/trunk/classAIVehicle.html#2c636c0df72394f3d7abeb1fd93b270f
16:30:32  <Yexo> you're misunderstanding that function
16:30:51  <krinn> that one gave the interal openttd id of an engine in a vehicle no ?
16:30:52  <George> andythenorth: Yes, it would be nice to have it animated.
16:31:02  <Yexo> a unit number is just an increasing number that is used to generate the "Train #<num>" numbers
16:31:14  <Yexo> it's not used anywhere by the game engine
16:31:17  <George> andythenorth: No, I did't plan to draw animation stages myself
16:31:18  <krinn> ah ok
16:31:22  <Yexo> the only id used is the VehicleID
16:31:41  <Yexo> and you already get the proper VehicleID, only AIVehicle.IsValidVehicle() limits the IDs that you can use
16:32:00  <Yexo> the VehicleID of a wagon that is attached to an engine for example is invalid for your AI due to AIVehicle.IsValidVehicle
16:32:08  <Yexo> for OpenTTD internal use that VehicleID is still used and valid

16:32:34  <Yexo> but extending the IDs that AIVehicle::IsValidVehicle() allows leads to other problems, so that's not a good solution
16:32:44  <andythenorth> George: you like the 130% version?
16:32:48  <krinn> if we could have a function that return then the AI version vehicleID of an attach openttd internal vehicleID, problem solve
16:33:06  <George> andythenorth: Yes, 150% increaase would fit well. Just place your truck nearby to see, if it fits as truck loader
16:33:24  <Yexo> krinn: either you don't want to get it or I'm not explaining it well. Either way I've already given the proper solution twice

18:46:54  <planetmaker> andythenorth: draw me different ones :-)
18:47:05  <planetmaker> you need to use three tiles, but you can make it look differently
18:47:56  <andythenorth> oh
18:48:04  <andythenorth> hmm
18:48:08  <andythenorth> kind offer, but no gain :P
18:48:57  <planetmaker> why no gain?
18:49:12  <andythenorth> still 3 tiles
18:49:13  <andythenorth> :)
18:49:50  <planetmaker> one tile?
18:50:08  <planetmaker> hm... lock or dock?
18:50:22  <planetmaker> On a 3 tile lock you can arbitrarily place things as you see fit
18:50:29  <planetmaker> thus simulate anything between 0 and 3
18:50:53  <andythenorth> locks should be 2 iles
18:50:55  <andythenorth> tiles /s
18:51:21  <Alberth> 1/2 at the first, 1 at the slope, and 1/2 at the end?
18:51:23  <planetmaker> Well. Then draw it. Feasible
18:51:28  <planetmaker> like what alberth said
18:52:16  <andythenorth> still 3 tiles though :P
18:52:53  <planetmaker> :-)
18:54:59  * andythenorth considers using the truck-feeder method to defeat stupid station ratings
18:57:29  <Terkhen> you can also implement a custom rating callback that always gives you 100%
18:57:52  <andythenorth> indeed :)
18:57:55  <andythenorth> is that cheating though
18:58:18  <Terkhen> no, then it is a decision of the NewGRF set author :P
18:59:42  <V453000> hmm :)
18:59:52  <andythenorth> can I hide the rating :P
18:59:55  <andythenorth> it annoys me
19:01:24  <Terkhen> why? I ignored it for years before I played online for the first time
19:01:38  <Terkhen> I ignored it as soon as it was higher than 70, of course :)

19:05:22  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
19:05:26  <planetmaker> or you devise a 'recession' economy
19:05:53  <andythenorth> or remove supplies :P
19:06:02  <Eddi|zuHause> *slap*
19:06:09  <andythenorth> it's a non-issue in default game - if ratings are low, production falls...

19:15:33  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
19:15:56  <Eddi|zuHause> at least for a time like 30 to 60 days, ratings should not drop below 50%

19:17:41  <andythenorth> shouldn't be part of FIRS
19:17:54  <Eddi|zuHause> it must be part of the grf providing the cargo?
19:18:02  <andythenorth> ok
19:18:06  <Eddi|zuHause> the callback is per-cargo
19:18:09  <andythenorth> right
19:18:15  <Eddi|zuHause> so you must know which industry set is loaded
19:18:22  <andythenorth> so in FIRS
19:18:31  <andythenorth> but locked to 100% is stupid?
19:18:35  <Eddi|zuHause> imho in FIRS, but with parameter
19:18:35  <andythenorth> some other algorithm?
19:18:44  <andythenorth> what's interesting?
19:18:50  <Eddi|zuHause> could use the parameter to select different algorithms
19:19:11  <Eddi|zuHause> make the 100% first, and then we experiment with different algorithms
19:19:11  <andythenorth> so I basically play NARS 2, US style railroading
19:19:22  <andythenorth> long trains, not very fast, slow travel times
19:19:31  <andythenorth> hmm
19:19:37  <andythenorth> could be tweaked per cargo
19:19:45  <andythenorth> so the bulk cargos are much less sensitive

19:20:16  <andythenorth> pax, mail

19:25:50  <andythenorth> I think what's going to happen is same outcome as if I just played properly....
19:25:55  <andythenorth> I have to build a lot more trains
19:25:58  <andythenorth> and a lot more track
19:27:21  <andythenorth> Yexo: url for the patch? :D
19:28:08  <frosch123> btw, is there a reason to include such features into firs? why no separate grf?
19:28:14  <Yexo> andythenorth: http://devs.openttd.org/~yexo/always_full_station_rating.diff
19:28:20  <Yexo> frosch123: it's a cargo callback
19:28:45  <Yexo> so if it's a separate grf it needs to be very careful to follow the firs cargo definitions, it must be loaded after firs and include the same cargo icons
19:29:19  <andythenorth> on a similar note, having FISH adjust base water construction costs would be wrong?
19:29:43  <frosch123> hmm, ok, i had the impression it was a generic callback :)
19:29:45  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: good idea, but have the parameter set to "default"
19:30:48  <Yexo> <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: something that is less sensitive to time intervals. 30 days: 70%, 60 days: 50% <- you mean "Days since last cargo pickup"?
19:30:57  <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: yes
19:31:00  * andythenorth reads cb145 docs
19:31:11  <Yexo> should it also effect "amount of cargo waiting"?
19:31:20  <andythenorth> there should be some curve

19:31:49  <V453000> so a lot of waiting cargo is bad but you want to keep ratings for a longer time?
19:31:51  <V453000> :d
19:32:02  <andythenorth> if >1000t is waiting, and rating plummets, not much more will be added to station
19:32:16  <andythenorth> max speed and age are stupid in ottd
19:32:20  <andythenorth> made sense in original game
19:32:26  <Eddi|zuHause> so: <30days: 70%, <60days: 60%, >1000 units: -10%, >2000 units: -15%
19:32:28  <andythenorth> statue bonus is stupid
19:32:49  <Yexo> age of last vehicle can't be adjusted by the callback, nor can the statue bonus
19:32:56  <Eddi|zuHause> statue bonus is kind of "this company is rich enough"
19:33:15  <V453000> well, no matter how "stupid" the bonuses or whatnot are, I think they work just fine
19:33:21  <Eddi|zuHause> imho it should not be the age of the vehicle, but the age of the model...
19:33:27  <andythenorth> nah

19:33:46  <andythenorth> bab
19:33:46  <andythenorth> 
19:33:49  <andythenorth> biab even
19:33:50  <Yexo> Eddi|zuHause: currently it's <7.5 days: 51%, < 15days: 37%, <30days: 20%. Are you sure you want to increase the percentages to 70% and 60%?
19:34:38  <Eddi|zuHause> "wow, this is the first transrapid" is certainly more attention attracting than "wow, this BR146 is brandnew, but it is the 500th of its kind"
19:34:41  <Yexo> for amount we have now >1000: -14%, > 1500: -35%
19:35:04  <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: yes, i want transfer-stations to keep ratings above 50% unless they are _really_ badly serviced
19:35:42  <Yexo> and keep the positive bonusses for small amounts of cargo waiting?
19:36:06  <Eddi|zuHause> maybe, haven't looked that much into the details
19:36:13  <Yexo> and what about max speed of last vehicle?
19:36:21  <Yexo> currently it's (Speed (km/h) - 85) / 4
19:36:25  <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: that only makes sense for passengers
19:36:26  <Yexo> so 0..17%
19:36:44  <Yexo> ok, so set to fixed 17% bonus for other cargoes?
19:37:04  <planetmaker> amount waiting is not the best proxy due to large transfer stations usually have high amounts waiting
19:37:10  <planetmaker> even if turnover is really high
19:37:38  <Yexo> planetmaker: but there is nothing better available
19:37:40  <planetmaker> I've had stations which shipped 30k pax a month - but had very poor as cargo was constantly between 0 and 5000k waiting
19:37:50  <planetmaker> changing daily
19:38:23  <Eddi|zuHause> so >1000: -10%, >2000: -15%, >5000: -20%, >10000: -30%
19:38:42  <planetmaker> better proxy would be waiting / monthly turnover
19:39:01  <planetmaker> or something along that
19:39:12  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: yes, but that needs openttd patches
19:39:24  <planetmaker> yes :-P

20:12:13  <andythenorth> the 100% patch *is* a bit insane
20:12:32  <andythenorth> will good station ratings also affect LA rating?
20:12:44  <Eddi|zuHause> no
20:12:44  <Yexo> no
20:13:08  <Eddi|zuHause> LA only consideres "service within last 20 days"

20:13:48  <tokai> andythenorth: I know how it used to be on MorphOS at least. It was like "whooooosh". Now I only get like a 2% increase or such. Just a very basic map and a few busses. Nothing special at least. :)  Also CPU usage isn't maxing out. Perhaps screen refresh is limiting factor here.
20:14:01  <Eddi|zuHause> where "service" means "at least 1 unit loaded or unloaded"
20:14:03  <Yexo> it's actually last 20 2.5-day cycles

20:30:11  <andythenorth> eddi's
20:30:20  <andythenorth> seems to work so far
20:30:25  <andythenorth> the 100% was a bit insane
20:30:49  <Eddi|zuHause> the 100% could be compensated with lower initial production
20:30:55  <andythenorth> maybe time to branch FIRS 0.7.0 and commit this to trunk FIRS?
20:32:26  <Yexo> sure, shall I commit?
20:35:46  <andythenorth> yes

21:32:25  <tokai> it seems hiding the OpenTTD window speeds up fast forward on Mac OS X (CPU usage goes up too, then). As I suspected the screen refresh is the limiting factor (have similar effects an emulator). :)
21:35:53  <appe> hm
21:36:08  <appe> i wish to drag a train track trough a full 2024 map
21:36:19  <JVassie> 1024 0r 2048
21:36:19  <planetmaker> get a bigger screen
21:36:22  <appe> is there a faster way then just drag and drop?
21:36:25  <appe> ah, sorry. 2024.
21:36:26  <appe> :>
21:36:28  <JVassie> zoom out?
21:37:47  <Terkhen> appe: open a viewport in one of the ends using the V key, move the main viewport to the other end and then drag the track from one viewport to another
21:38:08  <planetmaker> that works?
21:38:39  <appe> oh
21:38:43  <Terkhen> yes
21:38:43  * appe tries.
21:39:01  <Terkhen> maybe my explanation is a bit confusing :P
21:39:48  <appe> it worked
21:39:49  <appe> aewsomly
21:39:55  <Terkhen> ok :)
