05:28:53  <maddy_> I have been thinking about the signals thing we talked about yesterday: I will forget the idea for scripts, but maybe do something similar to 'programmable signals', only not use that as a base but start fresh
05:30:52  <maddy_> the supported features and specifically the GUI needs some thought to be sure
05:30:58  <SamanthaD_> is this so that prios won't have silly track elements?
05:31:22  <maddy_> yeah, at the simplest level, but I think I will support more stuff later on
05:32:15  <SamanthaD_> what I would like are signals with penalties going through them  for the pathfinder
05:32:52  <maddy_> we have that already, passing a pbs signal from the backside?
05:32:57  <SamanthaD_> (make trains prefer the "center lane" on multi-track tracks)
05:33:18  <SamanthaD_> yeah, I knew about that
05:33:36  <SamanthaD_> it's just that I have this track structure I've been playing with that involves alternating signals and cross-over tracks
05:33:55  <maddy_> it actually works out pretty good for the penalty, because you can change the penalty value manually (in my game a value of 500 worked good for my purpose, instead of the default 1500)
05:34:13  <maddy_> oh, right
05:34:53  <SamanthaD_> I dunno... I might go for a "priority signal" but more than that might be feature cruft...
05:35:04  <SamanthaD_> but that's just IMHO
05:36:49  <maddy_> the most simple version I am thinking of, is that you could choose a set of signals which the programmable signal depends on, and then select a boolean operator for it (AND, OR) which is used to process the inputs
05:37:22  <maddy_> it could be called a logic signal
05:37:50  *** DDR [] has joined #openttd
05:38:06  <SamanthaD_> definitely need thouht about the GUI for that though...
05:38:39  <maddy_> yeah, that's the hard part, how to do it well
05:39:23  <SamanthaD_> maybe we could just go with a consistent implementation? All signals are now controlled via Lisp code!
05:39:40  <maddy_> hehe
05:41:42  <maddy_> for more advanced features, I would really like to support signals which act based on the incoming train, so you could do splits based on cargo type, train length and the like
05:42:25  <SamanthaD_>  that's easy: just use a waypoint
05:50:53  <maddy_> right, I didn't think of that, good point, so that functionality is not required
05:51:04  <SamanthaD_> yup
05:51:10  <SamanthaD_> I use waypoints like that in almost every game!
05:52:36  <V453000> not even waypoints are necessary to do that :)
05:53:19  <maddy_> for train length? yeah I saw some logic constructs for it
05:54:53  <V453000> no even without that
05:55:28  <V453000> e.g. if both trains go somewhere a tiny little bit different, you can navigate them differently too, even though they would normally take the same path for most of the trip
05:55:28  <maddy_> ok, how then?
05:56:02  <V453000> we call it a pathfinder trap
05:56:17  <V453000> you basically simulate that somewhere is a path, but the trains cant access it when they approach it
05:56:56  <SamanthaD_> I usually use them in order to direct different trains to different platforms
05:57:06  <SamanthaD_> like... on small stations I might have one platform for loading and one for unloading
05:57:15  <SamanthaD_> or one for livestock and one for grain...
05:57:57  <V453000> well yeah but that is the same as if you made 2 separate stations which is probably more convenient in general
05:58:05  <maddy_> I read about the pathfinder trap, but didn't fully understand it, sounds interesting though
05:58:42  <V453000> here is a little piece of information about it but not much
05:58:45  <SamanthaD_> I've never heard about this trap thing...
05:58:53  <SamanthaD_> sounds like a bug we need to squash ;)
06:01:30  <SamanthaD_> anyway
06:01:31  <SamanthaD_> I gotta run
06:01:34  <SamanthaD_> you guys have fun, eh?
06:01:41  *** SamanthaD_ [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
06:03:26  <maddy_> V453000: what do you think about my idea for 'logic signals' ?
06:07:18  <V453000> unless it has gui visibility like cargo link it is completely worthless
06:07:47  <V453000> you can do everything by now already
06:08:22  <V453000> the signals would only do it invisibly - which if using a couple of signals would become absolutely chaotic if there is no graph thing to show which thing links to what, graphically
06:08:54  <V453000> it does not technically add anything new with it either, but at least is somewhat usable
06:11:12  <maddy_> yeah, the graph thing would really be a key I think, to show the links between the signals
06:11:28  <V453000> yes, rails do that now, which is a lot better
06:11:58  <V453000> but even with it I do not see a single reason for such feature
06:12:25  <V453000> unless you can think of something which will open new possibilities
06:13:05  <maddy_> the main reason is that you could do more 'clean' track layouts, without 'unused' priority tracks cluttering your track layouts, and of course not taking up space
06:14:06  <V453000> which is bs
06:14:45  <maddy_> why?
06:15:31  <V453000> because laying down tracks is better in every regard
06:15:44  <V453000> it is visible, better maintainable, more adjustable
06:15:54  <dihedral> good morning
06:15:58  <V453000> and mainly improvesp layers understanding of pre-signals
06:19:56  <maddy_> well, I disagree with every regard, but it has lots of good things too, I agree

07:47:33  <dihedral> hello maddy_
07:48:47  <maddy_> what do you think about my idea for logic signals, featuring only hard-coded choices, as opposed to should be more manageable
07:51:17  <dihedral> give me some examples, i did not ready the backlog :-P

07:51:47  *** Pecio [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:53:03  *** Pensacola [] has joined #openttd
07:53:20  <maddy_> very simple: ability to use AND/OR/NOT boolean operators and link to other signals as inputs
07:55:07  <dihedral> link only to the previous signal's as input
07:56:39  <dihedral> i like the idea
07:58:02  <maddy_> the key would be ability to show the links between the signals visually, so it's easy to see where the inputs come from
07:58:20  <dihedral> if you work with the pre signals, then you already have your OR type
07:59:03  <dihedral> and you already have the state forwarding / receiving
08:01:07  <maddy_> I will use the existing patch for programmable signals as a guide, but I will probably start fresh
08:03:07  <dihedral> i would rather suggest using the code for the existing pre signal types
08:03:44  <dihedral> esp block entry signal and combo signal (see

09:48:13  <Eddi|zuHause> maddy_: the main problem with "signals as inputs" is that it won't work with path signals, there you would need (reservation of) arbitrary tile as input
09:55:21  <Eddi|zuHause> hm... so WHY THE HELL does my code not work?
09:56:09  <Eddi|zuHause> i get some stuff from the database, update it, and then the update is not there when i read it again :/
10:00:44  <dihedral> master / slave database setup?
10:00:45  <dihedral> :-P
10:00:55  <dihedral> update fails
10:05:34  <Eddi|zuHause> AAAAAARRGHHH
10:05:55  <Eddi|zuHause> mismatch between editor's codepage and the #encoding-line
10:06:26  <dihedral> hehe
10:07:29  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, of course u"À" does not equal u"À"
10:08:59  <maddy_> Eddi|zuHause: yes, it would probably not work with path signals, my initial implementation would support only block signals I think
10:09:52  <Eddi|zuHause> maddy_: that's kind of the problem with all these patches. they try to cater some niche which fails to adress the main issue...
10:11:35  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, what's the main issue? :-)
10:12:03  <Eddi|zuHause> whatever involves path signals, which are the most common signals of all :)
10:12:07  <planetmaker> (IMHO for programmable signals it's a sane UI beyond textual display, visual feedback on the map)
10:12:13  <Eddi|zuHause> like... "signals on bridges" (WTF!)

10:15:59  <maddy_> planetmaker: any ideas for the UI / visual display on map are welcome btw
10:16:13  <Eddi|zuHause> well that is no surprise that V453000 does the exact opposite of what i would do :p

10:38:48  <LordAro> oh hey, the forums are fast again
10:39:34  <maddy_> Eddi|zuHause: good idea
10:40:24  <dihedral> Eddi|zuHause, wtf? what is that for??
10:40:33  <Eddi|zuHause> maddy_: a method to synchronize the signals like vehicle timetables would help there :)
10:40:45  <dihedral> you have mad ideas Eddi
10:41:11  <Eddi|zuHause> dihedral: mixed cargo/passenger line won't allow cargo trains to enter the line short before a passenger train is scheduled
10:41:31  <dihedral> Eddi|zuHause, what will happen if you computer denotes the suffix of your nick, and for some odd reason you need to take your home computer to work?
10:42:00  <Eddi|zuHause> dihedral: we'll figure that out when it happens :p
10:42:20  <dihedral> Eddi|zuHause, you can simply solve that by using a 'priority' type setup and making cargo trains a tile longer than passenger trains :-P
10:42:45  <dihedral> then you can loop a singal state forward to the passengar lane so that when a cargo train comes the passenger lane is always red :-P
10:42:51  <Eddi|zuHause> dihedral: can't put "priorities" on path signals
10:43:07  <dihedral> not on the signals
10:43:09  <dihedral> build it with tracks
10:43:15  <dihedral> oh - path signals ...
10:43:20  <dihedral> yucks
10:43:28  <Eddi|zuHause> dihedral: not enough space
10:43:42  <dihedral> that's your problem :-D
10:44:40  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, i often have a different set of problems and solutions than openttdcoop :p
10:44:42  <V453000> nobody says you need to have path signals everywhere :)
10:45:14  <Eddi|zuHause> V453000: but they do help when space is an issue :)
10:45:21  <V453000> everywhere?
10:46:04  <V453000> if you need signal A to do whatever (e.g. priority), you dont need or want path signal there anyway
10:46:37  <Eddi|zuHause> V453000: if you can put the "priority" and "load balancer" stuff into the programmable part, instead of extra tracks, there is no reason not to use path signals
10:47:09  <V453000> how is it related to path signals at all
10:47:18  <Eddi|zuHause> it is not
10:47:32  <Eddi|zuHause> it shoudl just work with them, or i won't use the patch
10:48:31  <V453000> if that worked, it would add something new indeed
10:48:38  <V453000> otherwise it is worthless as I said
10:51:30  <V453000> I wouldnt say that path signals are simple at all though
10:51:52  <V453000> every beginner has easier time understanding what is a signal block than where are safe waiting post
10:51:54  <V453000> spots
10:52:36  <dihedral> i think and|or|not signals for pre signal type could be interesting
10:52:48  <dihedral> where OR already exists
10:53:04  <peter1138> signal blocks, yes, pre-signals, no
10:53:42  <peter1138> but then true, most people don't give a fuck about safe waiting points and use path signals as block signal replacements
10:54:07  <V453000> I did not say pre-signals on purpose :)
10:54:10  <Eddi|zuHause> every beginner doesn't understand signals at all :p
10:54:27  <V453000> well then, why are path signals (especially the 2way ones) default? :d
10:54:40  <V453000> if basic block signals are most intuitive to new players
10:55:02  <Eddi|zuHause> that was an unproven statement by you
10:55:36  <V453000> yes I only see and teach players, has no value
10:57:34  <Eddi|zuHause> well, then implement a feature that hides presignals from the signal gui, for beginners
10:57:58  <Eddi|zuHause> then the block signal could be default, with path signals as an option
10:58:09  <V453000> how does that make any sense
10:58:11  <Eddi|zuHause> for when they learned what ha signal is
10:58:30  <Eddi|zuHause> because nobody(tm) needs presignals :)
10:58:56  <V453000> only retarded people dont
10:59:24  <Eddi|zuHause> if it were up to me, i would have ripped them out of the game and every tutorial out there
10:59:34  <V453000> very sensible
11:00:05  <Eddi|zuHause> you could re-implement their functionality with programmable signals
11:00:52  <peter1138> +1
11:01:02  <V453000> simple logic of pre-signals does not kill the fun, retarded programming of signals would.
11:01:24  <Eddi|zuHause> then you need the ability to define "signal templates"
11:01:31  <Eddi|zuHause> to easily construct junctions
11:01:48  <Eddi|zuHause> without defining each signal individually
11:02:14  <V453000> which would end up as pre-signals ... difference is?
11:02:42  <Eddi|zuHause> difference is... a) more flexibility, b) less old clutter

11:04:38  <V453000> that doesnt make sense
11:04:48  <roboboy> no
11:05:11  <Eddi|zuHause> or where you store your copy-paste junctions
11:05:28  <V453000> anybody uses copypaste?

11:05:51  <Eddi|zuHause> anybody uses presignals?
11:06:48  <V453000> most people do
11:07:24  <V453000> go visit actual servers, not forums filled with idiots who talk more than play
11:07:51  <Eddi|zuHause> anybody uses servers?
11:08:26  <V453000> oh, ok then
11:12:46  <maddy_> does there have to be a one-solution-fits-all type thing though? like say path vs block signals: arguably you could do some things with either type, depending on the players preferences
11:14:06  <V453000> I think the only thing to add could be a PBS signal which is red when presignals ahead are red
11:14:15  <V453000> you could do anything with that too

11:37:44  <dihedral> peter1138, what's wrong with using the existing pre-signal setup and extending that? they already have forwarding and receiving previous signals state, it's easy to add and change their reaction based on forwarded states
11:40:45  <peter1138> dihedral, i wasn't responding to you :)
11:41:00  <V453000> there isnt any problem with it, that is their problem :)
11:48:03  <maddy_> I'll see what I can do, if anything, being so beginner at openttd even as a player, not to mention as a coder
11:50:09  <planetmaker> coding a game is playing the meta-game ;-)
11:54:24  <Eddi|zuHause> sooo... UI concept: the signal GUI is changed, to allow a "insert new signal type here" button. then a "programmable signals" gui opens up, you can select an appearance of the signal out of the current (8?) signal type graphics, a button whether it acts as a block or path signal, and a behaviour setup where instead of "listen to signal at <X>" you enter "listen to {all|nearest} signal of type <X>" ["... and make <decision"] which
11:54:25  <Eddi|zuHause> automatically gets filled in when placing the signal/changing the junction
11:55:40  <Eddi|zuHause> player can manually override the selected signal(s) after the signal is placed, with the "regular" programmable signal GUI
11:57:05  <Eddi|zuHause> maybe newgrf signals can provide more than 8 signal graphics
11:57:11  <peter1138> pff
11:57:22  <peter1138> what was wrong with the already implemented programmable signals anyway?
11:57:29  <Eddi|zuHause> no idea
11:57:32  <Eddi|zuHause> never tried it
11:57:44  <Eddi|zuHause> likely "doesn'T work with path signals" :p
11:57:59  <maddy_> peter1138: nothing as such, I will plan to use it as a guide, but I like to write stuff from the scratch, to learn the openttd code better
11:58:00  <peter1138> there's more to signal state than checking the state of other signals
11:58:53  <Eddi|zuHause> the main thing to learn from that patch is probably "how and where was this stuff stored?"
11:58:53  <peter1138> whether it's possible to "hold this slow train a second while that faster train goes through" sanely is another matter :D
11:59:30  <peter1138> of course, that's "worthless" to players like V453000, but not to everyone
11:59:30  <Eddi|zuHause> peter1138: i don't think the signal should be able to detect the type of train that is waiting
11:59:35  <peter1138> why not?
11:59:45  <Eddi|zuHause> performance? complexity?
11:59:56  <peter1138> think of it as an automated man in a signal box or control centre
12:00:16  <peter1138> of course it's not the signal doing the decision really, but even so
12:00:16  <Eddi|zuHause> a turk signal! :p
12:00:35  <peter1138> pfft performance pfft complexity
12:00:38  <maddy_> peter1138: someone suggested that different trains could be already directed to specific tracks by using waypoints, which to some degree defeats the purpose of detecting any info about the incoming train
12:01:35  <Eddi|zuHause> maybe the other way around would be "enough", impose a pathfinder penalty depending on which train requested a path
12:01:51  <Eddi|zuHause> then the signal does not have to actively check for a train waiting
12:02:03  <Eddi|zuHause> and it can influence trains from further away already
12:02:26  <Eddi|zuHause> so you can guide slow trains towards the "slow trains wait here" signal
12:02:43  <Eddi|zuHause> and let the fast train pass on the "fast lane"
12:11:49  <dihedral> <maddy_> I'll see what I can do, if anything, being so beginner at openttd even as a player, not to mention as a coder <- i have not played in a very long time myself

13:00:56  <__ln__> does anyone have an idea what would be a good way to compress something like 15..30 bytes of data?
13:01:52  <Wolf01> mux/demux
13:04:57  <__ln__> a what?
13:05:08  <Wolf01> multiplexing
13:05:25  <Wolf01> but might not be your case
13:06:22  <Eddi|zuHause> for compressing it always matters WHAT kind of data
13:07:10  <__ln__> naturally.
13:07:12  <Eddi|zuHause> there is no algorithm that can compress every stream of 30 bytes by 1 bit
13:08:38  <Eddi|zuHause> because there is one less bitstream of 1 to 8*30-1 bits than bitstreams of 8*30 bits.
13:10:07  <__ln__> i am well aware of the inherent limitations
13:10:14  <Eddi|zuHause> it's like the game where there's one less chairs than players
13:11:21  <Wolf01> you could turn up the chairs and let 4 people sit for each chair... ehm
13:11:27  <__ln__> i don't expect to compress any given input by even 1 bit, but i'm looking into the possibility of compressing some inputs by more than insignificant amount of bits.
13:11:51  <Wolf01> you could try to apply a Huffmann algorythm
13:12:39  <krinn> with such few bits, any compression system will higher the result on failure
13:12:53  *** Tom_Soft [~id@] has joined #openttd
13:13:14  <__ln__> krinn: indeed, that's why probably the very first bit should indicate whether the data is compressed at all.
13:14:31  *** amiller [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:14:37  <Eddi|zuHause> well there are only a handful of generic compression algorithms, so when you don't give us any details about the structure of the data, just pick one of those
13:14:53  <Eddi|zuHause> huffman code is good start, or an arithmetic code
13:16:02  <Eddi|zuHause> or just pipe it through gzip
13:16:21  <__ln__> i know many algorithms or at least their practical implementations will generate so much headers and stuff that for very small inputs the compressed size will basically be larger than the source.
13:17:25  <Eddi|zuHause> yes. so what is the actual usecase where shaving a few bits off a 30 byte stream would outweigh the effort and latency of compressing?
13:18:37  <krinn> and generally for stream people prefer having more bits than less :)
13:19:09  <__ln__> the use case is transferring a few dozen bytes of binary data on the phone, one person reading it out loud, and the other one writing it down on the other end.

13:20:41  <Wolf01> *having
13:20:55  <Eddi|zuHause> acoustic coupling :p
13:21:14  <Eddi|zuHause> the phone system is digital nowadays, you know :p
13:21:17  <__ln__> Wolf01: perhaps, but if one person doesn't have a modem, it doesn't work very well.
13:21:54  <__ln__> Wolf01: besides, i challenge you to find me a price for an acoustic modem that you can use with a cell phone :)
13:21:57  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: whatever you're trying to do, you should probably rethink your approach :p
13:22:02  <krinn> __ln__ i think the best method would be compressing the whole message and then send the compress message 30/30bytes
13:22:16  <Wolf01> the cellphone already has a modem
13:22:45  <__ln__> not necessarily, and certainly not an acoustic one
13:22:49  <Wolf01> or you won't be able to talk to another person
13:22:52  <Eddi|zuHause> the cellphone has also SMS which can transfer 30 bytes easily :p
13:23:50  <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: i don't trust that people can write 30 characters of arbitrary A-Z0-9 without typos :/
13:24:10  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: add an error code :)
13:24:28  <__ln__> however, generating a QR code would be a possibility, and reading it with the phone's camera if it has one.
13:25:02  <Wolf01>
13:26:24  *** tssst [~id@] has joined #openttd
13:26:38  <krinn> you may count 1 and 0 and send the value as 3 (3 bit set to 1) -4 (4 bits set to 0).... if you have a good range of pattern of 0|1 you get good result and an easy system for the other guy to uncode it
13:28:00  *** Tom_Soft [~id@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:28:23  <__ln__> Wolf01: good url
13:28:25  <peter1138> bit-wise RLE is probably going to use more bits representing the counters than the data
13:28:42  <krinn> in the worst case you will have to said it 240 times :)
13:28:56  <Wolf01> or the run-length compression, but works well only if you have multiple consecutive 0 or 1, like 3-0 and 2-1, 2-0, 2-1 => 000110011

18:25:47  <maddy_> Eddi|zuHause: yeah, where/what are they?
18:25:56  <V453000> will be some box-ish things on flatbeds, so could make those as icons
18:25:57  <krinn> lol maddy_ an AIList
18:26:07  <Eddi|zuHause> how should i know... i don't write c++ :p
18:26:18  <andythenorth> V453000 need Copper, Sugar, Diamonds, Rubber, Coffee
18:26:24  <andythenorth> but too lazy too draw them :)
18:26:36  <V453000> .......
18:26:41  <andythenorth>
18:27:01  <andythenorth> I spose copper is just iron ore, but pink :P
18:27:04  <V453000> diamonds are on flatbeds already, you could grab those
18:27:10  <V453000> rest I dont have :)
18:27:14  <andythenorth> sugar is white grain
18:27:21  <V453000> maybe sugar/copper/rubber can be grabbed from hoppers
18:27:29  <andythenorth> coffee comes in a cup? :P
18:27:35  <andythenorth> rubber?
18:27:45  <V453000> coffee will be in boxes on flatbeds
18:27:48  <V453000> rubber is in hoppers
18:27:53  <krinn> andythenorth, i'm not sure oracle won't sue you, they are kinda mad
18:27:57  <Eddi|zuHause> coffee should be bulk
18:28:04  <V453000> go see nuts/gfx and look for "hopper" files
18:29:24  <andythenorth> hmm
18:29:29  <andythenorth> maybe too big for icons :)
18:29:39  <andythenorth> they are 10x10 px
18:29:44  <V453000> maglevhopper might be k
18:30:19  <krinn> at that size andythenorth i'm afraid even a cow looks like copper
18:30:49  <V453000> IZ A LIE
18:30:59  <Eddi|zuHause> you'd be amazed what some people can do with a mere hundred pixels

19:26:31  <Bad_Brett> Location:   File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\PIL\", line 1980, in open
19:27:29  <andythenorth> looks like a PIL error :)
19:27:29  <Bad_Brett> it seems that this error should occur if you try to use pcx files - which I don't do
19:27:44  <planetmaker> pcx files should work, though
19:27:54  <planetmaker> afaik. Unless pil doesn't support them ;-)
19:28:57  <Xaroth|Work> depends on how PIL is compiled
19:29:06  <Xaroth|Work> it supports it if you have the system libraries for it
19:29:11  <Bad_Brett> the strange thing is that it worked a few hours ago
19:29:20  <Bad_Brett> maybe some image file has been corrupted
19:29:32  <Bad_Brett> in the cache maybe?
19:30:23  <Xaroth|Work> can you try removing PIL
19:30:26  <Xaroth|Work> then installing Pillow
19:30:43  <Xaroth|Work> (through pip works best)
19:31:24  <Bad_Brett> i'll try that if clearing the cache won't do the trick
19:31:32  *** Aristide [~quassel@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
19:32:41  <planetmaker> Xaroth, I first indeed would guess a corrupted image file
19:33:56  <Xaroth|Work> planetmaker: yeh, most likely
19:34:06  <Xaroth|Work> but it could also be some obscure issue with PIL that Pillow has solved
19:34:49  <Bad_Brett> since i could compile the same file earlier today, it seems doesn't seem very likely though
19:35:28  *** Progman [] has joined #openttd
19:35:33  <planetmaker> Xaroth, very unlikely... and... pillow with nmlc is supported... but I can't say that it's well tested
19:35:58  <Xaroth|Work> Pillow is backwards compatible with PIL
19:36:04  <planetmaker> in principle
19:36:09  <Xaroth|Work> and PIL should be counted as deprecated tbh
19:37:05  <planetmaker> is the other side of the medal ;-)
19:37:38  <Bad_Brett> so the search begins... 8192 png's
19:37:39  <planetmaker> the version which caused the report is the pillow support ;-)
19:38:01  <Bad_Brett> perhaps it's quicker to create fresh copies :)
19:38:16  <planetmaker> Bad_Brett, just look for create / modification time?
19:38:23  <planetmaker> since it last worked
19:38:52  <Bad_Brett> that may indeed do the trick
19:39:00  <Xaroth|Work> how is that the other side of the coin, pm?
19:40:51  <planetmaker> (slightly) different call paths
19:41:15  <planetmaker> those are different. changing that broke (some) PIL installs
19:41:43  <Xaroth|Work> easy_install can cock up sometimes, yes
19:42:18  <andythenorth> we should just write a buildout for whole thing :P
19:42:25  <andythenorth> but buildout is a strange beast
19:43:15  <Xaroth|Work> pip + requirements.txt should often be enough
19:44:47  <andythenorth> I would (and do) virtualenv in that case :)
19:45:23  <wakou2>
19:45:39  <wakou2> Might be interesting for some of you...
19:46:06  <Xaroth|Work> andythenorth: if pip works and you have an up-to-date requirements.txt , setting it up in venv should be a walk in the park
19:46:33  <andythenorth> I could be convinced easily :)
19:46:46  <andythenorth> I have no experience with pip and requirements.txt
19:46:51  *** Bad_Brett [] has quit [Quit: Nettalk6 -]
19:46:56  <Xaroth|Work> pip is the better variant of easy_install
19:47:03  <andythenorth> I have experienced multiple other python packaging systems - and their problems
19:47:26  <andythenorth> currently installing nml is a faff
19:47:43  <andythenorth> it took me several days of attempts the first time
19:47:52  <Xaroth|Work> and requirements.txt is just a text file with 1 package (plus optional version specifier) per line
19:48:01  <planetmaker> preferred method: hg checkout and put that in the path :D
19:48:04  <Xaroth|Work> so you can tell pip to install all requirements in 1 go
19:49:22  <andythenorth> add it to nml? ;)
19:49:23  <Xaroth|Work> and, at the same time, your file can read requirements.txt to get the proper values for setuptools/distutils
19:49:29  <andythenorth>
19:49:35  *** Bad_Brett [] has joined #openttd
19:50:16  <andythenorth> current faff
19:50:22  <andythenorth> which has a number of issues
19:51:40  <planetmaker> I think anyone is welcome to submit patch(es) to improve the situation
19:52:00  <planetmaker> tbh, I didn't yet care much about the installation issue(s)
19:52:17  <andythenorth> I am trying to remember the actual issues I had, rather than the issues caused by bad / conflicting advice on irc :)
19:52:21  <andythenorth> both happened :P
19:53:47  <planetmaker> :-)
19:54:20  <andythenorth> problems I recall
19:54:33  <andythenorth> - there is a fair chance that user has a broken setuptools :P
19:54:45  <andythenorth> - some versions of PIL are just borked and don't install
19:54:51  <andythenorth> (PIL is known bad, hence pillow)
19:54:56  <Xaroth|Work> yep
19:54:57  <planetmaker> yes
19:55:02  <andythenorth> - if you are on OS X, all bets are off
19:55:06  * andythenorth is on OS X
19:55:11  <planetmaker> :-)
19:55:14  <Xaroth|Work> OSX is known to fuck packages up
19:55:28  <Bad_Brett> when everything else fails: restart your computer :)
19:55:30  <Xaroth|Work> python, perl, heck they even managed to mess up PHP PEAR :|
19:55:34  <andythenorth> if you are given advice about screwing with your path for specific python packages, this is PROBABLY wrong
19:55:56  <andythenorth> - get a clean version of python 2.6 or 2.7
19:56:01  <andythenorth> - never get python from macports
19:56:05  <andythenorth> - never get anything from macports
19:56:11  <Xaroth|Work> yep
19:56:13  <planetmaker> well... works for me :D
19:56:20  <frosch123> night
19:56:23  *** frosch123 [] has quit [Quit: be yourself, except: if you have the opportunity to be a unicorn, then be a unicorn]
19:56:35  <andythenorth> - installing python modules system wide is a cluster fuck if you work on multiple projects
19:56:45  <Xaroth|Work> yep
19:56:50  <Xaroth|Work> use virtualenv :)
19:56:54  <andythenorth> - always use a virtualenv, even if people tell you not to
19:57:14  <Xaroth|Work> unless you're extremely stubborn, then good luck fixing things yourself if you cock up :P
19:57:29  <andythenorth> yup
19:57:30  <andythenorth> so
19:57:38  <andythenorth> what I learned (for OS X)
19:57:53  <andythenorth> - use buildout.python to get all the pythons
19:57:56  <planetmaker> anyway... back to creating new DevZone :D
19:57:58  <andythenorth> - alias the pythons correctly
19:58:13  <andythenorth> - create a virtual env for your newgrf projects
19:58:20  <andythenorth> - install the nmlc deps in the virtualenv
19:58:26  <andythenorth> - pray that setuptools doesn't screw you
19:58:33  <andythenorth> - pray that PIL doesn't screw you
19:58:36  <andythenorth> - profit! :)
19:58:57  <andythenorth> and then all is well
19:59:17  <andythenorth> planetmaker: *new* DevZone? o_O

21:03:40  <Bad_Brett> i would like to be able to use longer vehicles, and i hate when they split on the middle
21:04:30  <Bad_Brett> i think i have a solid approach, however, the code is getting so complex that it drives me insane :)
21:05:14  <andythenorth> sometimes you're fighting the game
21:05:19  <andythenorth> it is what it is :)
21:05:24  <andythenorth> don't let me discourage you though
21:06:45  <Bad_Brett> :)
21:07:29  <Bad_Brett> everything is eddi's fault... it was him who showed me CETS
21:07:50  <planetmaker> lol
21:08:17  <planetmaker> Bad_Brett, it's important to have goals. But also important to get things done. In smaller steps than re-inventing the world :-)
21:08:28  <planetmaker> (even when that can be your goal)
21:09:14  <Bad_Brett> yeah i know... however, sometimes doing the right preperations may save time in the end
21:10:48  <andythenorth> hmm
21:10:54  <andythenorth> I need some idea for Bulk Terminal port
21:11:04  <andythenorth> problem is, cargos might change per economy
21:11:25  <Rubidium> that's no problem in a stuff economy
21:11:34  <andythenorth> good point
21:11:47  <andythenorth> I should make a stuff economy easter egg
21:12:17  <planetmaker> ^^ :-)
21:12:29  <planetmaker> is there two kind of stuff or only one?
21:12:57  <andythenorth> three
21:13:03  <andythenorth> red, green and blue stuff
21:13:16  <andythenorth> this trading post is no good :(
21:13:22  * andythenorth has looked at it again
21:13:28  <andythenorth> the life of a newgrf author is hard :P
21:14:09  <Bad_Brett> you tell me
21:14:26  <Bad_Brett> by the way, how was the tt-forums get-together?
21:15:56  * andythenorth might have to draw something, instead of copy+paste existing sprites :/

21:40:05  <LordAro> that looks... bad
21:40:08  <planetmaker> good night

21:40:22  <Xaroth|Work> nn pm
21:41:14  <andythenorth> bulk terminal?
21:41:17  <andythenorth> approximately
21:42:45  <Xaroth|Work> nice
21:42:56  <Bad_Brett> very nice indeed
21:43:24  <andythenorth> it will do for now, as an idea

21:46:00  <Bad_Brett> LordAro, what's the status on your AI?
21:46:14  <LordAro> umm, working, i think
21:46:26  <LordAro> i haven't looked at it in about 2 years :/
21:48:20  <Bad_Brett> is it only for road vehicles?
21:52:21  <LordAro> buses only
21:53:43  <Bad_Brett> ah ok
21:53:56  <Bad_Brett> i remember using it a lot a few years ago
21:54:32  <LordAro> yayz :)
21:55:23  <LordAro> tbh, now that i understand a bit (quite a lot) more about coding, i'd probably scrap the whole thing and start again :L
22:00:59  <Bad_Brett> one thing i remember last time i tried the different AI's, was that high running costs seemed to drive them out of business quickly... the ones that could handle trains never seemed to survive if I used the NARS grf
22:02:33  <Bad_Brett> my fear is that no AI will be able to handle the gold rush scenario either :(

23:20:30  <wakou2> Hi folks what grfs should I use if I want to start date at (say) 1900?
23:21:11  <V453000> yes
23:23:36  <krinn> wakou2: if it's to get vehicle, egrvts gave u horses
23:24:11  <wakou2> krinn: TY and early trains?
23:25:50  <krinn> wakou2, i don't know, trains appears ~ 1940 i think
23:25:57  *** Bad_Brett [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
23:26:18  <krinn>
23:26:20  <krinn> 1925
23:27:00  <V453000> most newgrf train sets start in 1920
23:27:11  <V453000> 1920 could be UKRS2 or NARS I guess
23:27:13  <krinn>
23:27:25  <krinn> 1902...
23:27:26  <V453000> other train sets arent even noteworthy
23:28:49  <krinn> V453000, trying jedi tricks on his mind ?
23:29:02  <V453000> what jedi tricks :d
23:29:19  <krinn> "this is not the newGRF you are seeking"
23:29:53  <V453000> 2cc set is bulltrash, everybody knows that
23:30:30  <krinn> so if so many knows it, maybe it's worth mention it no?
23:30:57  <V453000> definitely not
23:32:13  <V453000> im not sure if a newGRF being known as useless means it is noteworthy
23:33:04  <wakou2> & just getting zbase update from online content...   273Mb!! Is that right??
23:33:29  <krinn> "crappy state" is a personal thing, while popular, even bad for some or many, it should have something worth if everyone pick it up
23:33:34  <krinn> wakou2, yes, big file
23:33:58  <wakou2> Ok... (drums fingers) :)
23:34:17  <V453000> well since everyone picks up everything (to at least try it), I do not see how your sentence has any valid logic either
23:35:48  <krinn> wakou2 has just prove that theory is wrong :)
23:36:34  <V453000> k now I dont understand at all
23:37:40  <krinn> since everyone picks up everything -> if everybody was doing that, wakou2 would have done it and don't ask what newGRF to use
23:42:28  <V453000> ofc because he is just plain lazy and doesnt even bother trying things
23:42:31  <V453000> I dont even consider those people
23:43:54  <krinn> another new theory base on facts ?
23:44:43  <V453000> lazy people have no place in this game
23:45:05  <V453000> they will just get bored sooner or later anyway so why bother
23:45:39  <krinn> i dunno, maybe because you're the bored one here, assuming everyone is lazy just because asking something
23:48:33  <V453000> so you consider asking in some IRC channel a better option than trying to download the train set and check yourself when trains come out
23:49:12  <krinn> considering how many trainset are there, it's just enough yes, but he was asking vehicle, not specially trainset
23:50:16  <V453000> I still think trying, discovering, and learning on your own is a lot more productive
