00:00:53  <Eddi|zuHause> if you want to go a overlong wagon way, the long wagon could be 12lu (meaning 1.5 times a default wagon)
00:01:38  <Eddi|zuHause> short wagon would then be 6lu, and medium wagon 8lu
00:01:59  <Eddi|zuHause> where lu is a "length unit"
00:02:16  <Eddi|zuHause> 16lu make one tile

00:02:43  <Eddi|zuHause> long wagons, however, are tricky to code and might glitch
00:05:00  <samu> aircraft refited to mail gives too much money
00:05:19  <Eddi|zuHause> aircraft [...] gives too much money.
00:05:31  <samu> way much more then
00:05:38  <Eddi|zuHause> aircraft are boring
00:06:12  <Eddi|zuHause> you can't organize them properly
00:06:45  <dreck> samu...airplanes are meant to be paired with basecost to put it in blunt terms...
00:07:04  <dreck> they came too cheap in all numbers by default and even grfs still follow the same path too :->
00:07:04  <Eddi|zuHause> use maintenance cost for airports. go bankrupt.
00:07:12  <samu> I remember the other time I was here, last year or 2, complaining about refiting aircraft to mail
00:07:20  <samu> the ratio
00:07:28  <dreck> eddi ah...didn't think I've heard of this 'lu' measurement before..makes more sense...thanks :)
00:07:37  * dreck will look it up
00:07:43  <samu> in comparison with TTDX
00:08:01  <samu> forgot what it was exactly, grr
00:08:12  <samu> my head
00:08:12  <Eddi|zuHause> dreck: i was trying to spread it, but nobody ever caught on. everybody calls it "/8"
00:08:33  <dreck> thing I liked in the true original planes tho was that you could refit for any freights and not only mail/goods :)
00:08:54  <dreck> at least russiaplanes (forgot exact grf name) has some good all-freight planes in its buylist
00:09:26  <Eddi|zuHause> av8 definitely has some all-cargo aircraft
00:09:41  <samu> the refiting cargo in openttd mismatch the values of ttdx
00:09:54  <samu> and I was trying to figure the formula, do you remember ?
00:10:02  <dreck> samu mind you the one thing that still annoys me is how noone can make a passenger-only plane :-s but heh no comment
00:10:03  <Eddi|zuHause> no
00:10:53  <Eddi|zuHause> dreck: well, you can easily set the mail capacity to 0... but passenger planes are meant to carry mail...
00:10:58  <samu> I even used dosbox
00:11:00  <dreck> so eddi.. 16lu is 1.0 ... 8lu would be 0.5 etc?
00:11:06  <Eddi|zuHause> dreck: yes
00:11:13  <Eddi|zuHause> 8lu is a standard wagon
00:11:17  <dreck> eddi...the problem is when you have a passenger-only network and now your station is messed up with lot of mail piling up :-s
00:11:39  <Eddi|zuHause> wagons longer than that need to be made of parts, and then trickery added to make them not bend or glitch (that much)
00:11:56  <dreck> making you have to either compound the runaway traffic with mail-only planes to clear the load out or ..convert some trains to less passenger capacity just to get mail ...etca ... heh -_-
00:12:13  <dreck> ah yeah articulated sprites..I've seen a few samples of these so I know what you mean
00:14:36  <Eddi|zuHause> this is the early steps of that: parts of that are now outdated, others are better developed
00:15:48  <samu> my memory really sucks
00:15:56  <Supercheese> get more RAM then ;)
00:16:10  <samu> do you have a log of this chat of 2 years ago or so? want to find where I talked about it
00:16:20  <Supercheese>  @logs may have it

00:19:41  <samu> An error occured, which was not logged, and was not reported to anybody. It might be your fault, or it might be mine.
00:19:45  <samu> i can't search
00:22:05  <dreck> eddi mm thanks for that small thread .. I don't think I even got anything long planned for yet ... other than maybe one or two garratt-style locomotives but cheers :)
00:22:08  <samu> according to some dosbox screenshots it was around May 2015

11:09:10  *** Pereba [~UserNick@] has joined #openttd
11:17:15  <V453000> am starting to wonder if 72 sprites per vehicle is a great idea XD
11:24:34  <planetmaker> V453000, well, you cannot compose a vehicle view from several sprites - unless you count articulation; but there technically each part is a separate vehicle
11:24:47  <V453000> they are articulated yes :)
11:24:49  <planetmaker> but then, I'm sure you know that
11:25:05  <V453000>
11:25:13  <V453000> I want articulated vehicles made of 9 parts
11:25:30  <V453000> 1+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+1 lengths of consists (16/8 total)
11:25:37  <V453000> bending everywhere XD
11:25:54  <V453000> of course I can replace the central 2s to put there normal 2x8/8 at any point
11:25:58  *** Flygon_ [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
11:26:14  <planetmaker> aye
11:26:55  <V453000> I just want to see how much WTF is bending everywhere going to be
11:27:07  <V453000> so far I assume it could be glitch free XD
11:27:14  <V453000> question is whether it would look good at all
11:27:47  <V453000> my logic was that since I already always use the articulation, and since I already have to use at least 2 units to create full 16/8, might as well do the whole thing :D
11:28:07  <V453000> because when the engine would bend in half I feel like it would feel more like a mistake than if it bent everywhere
11:28:16  <V453000> thoughts?
11:37:25  *** Flygon [] has joined #openttd

12:18:00  <V453000> vehicul turned to bits :D
12:18:12  <V453000> say something about over-engineered andythenorth ?
12:20:31  <andythenorth> V453000: looks appropriately engineered
12:20:58  <andythenorth> V453000: do you hate bendy trains still?
12:21:03  <V453000> idk XD
12:21:09  <andythenorth> I am thinking that bendy trains might be wtf awesome
12:21:26  <V453000> yeah
12:21:27  <andythenorth> eddi’s stuff with extra turning angles is impressive, but for a cartoon-esque game, I think bendy is the way to go
12:21:30  <V453000> no glitches in tunnels and shit
12:21:31  * andythenorth considers bendy trucks :P
12:21:43  <V453000>
12:21:47  <V453000> basic train cut to shit
12:21:56  <andythenorth> call it FLOW :P

15:55:13  <planetmaker> samu, other than taking a savegame and looking at settings, there is no nice way to extract settings. Though you can load it and look then at settings and it will tell you the difference to default at least. Not sure whether to yours as well

16:58:41  <samu> hey, i managed to recreate the same landscape, but not the same spawning position of towns
16:58:45  <samu> or industries
17:00:36  <samu> wait, no, landscape is slightly different
17:00:50  <samu> there's water in the SE borders
17:01:10  <samu> the rest is equal
17:06:46  <samu> aha, one step closer to recreate it equal, now the problem is the number of towns generated
17:07:36  <samu> it creates the same town names in the same positions, but it is creating some extra ones, how do I figure out

17:39:19  <samu> merge it with tooltip
17:39:37  <samu> and get rid of holding shift key
17:41:12  <Alberth> you have to press both mouse buttons instead?
17:41:36  <samu> no, it would show up
17:42:01  <Alberth> not with my settings, I have to press rmb
17:42:01  <samu> hold left click - the yellow thing shows up
17:42:16  <samu> for example
17:42:39  <samu> build a road from A to B, it shows lenght, then it could also show estimated cost in the same tooltip
17:43:48  <samu> for single click
17:44:13  <Alberth> like I said, I have my tooltips connected to the rmb
17:44:22  <samu> hold left click for the estimated cost popup, if you wanna build, release left click
17:44:40  <samu> if you wanna cancel, drag over the toolbar
17:44:45  <samu> and won't build

17:45:26  <Alberth> I just HATE automagic popups, they're always covering pieces I want to see
17:45:37  <samu> ah:(
17:45:42  <Alberth> I also don't display length
17:47:06  <Alberth> and cost isn't that interesting either, imho, I always have more than enough
17:48:18  <samu> then, the shift-key would be free for some other use :)
17:48:24  <samu> but oh well
17:49:22  <Alberth> magic keys like control or shift are not that useful any more, touch tablets etc don't have those keys
17:50:14  <Alberth> that's going to be increasingly a problem, I think
17:57:08  <samu> rats, just noticed something odd
17:57:45  <samu> the oil rig spawning is spawning
17:57:53  <samu> not on the borders
17:58:01  <samu> but futher inside the land
17:58:14  <samu> the grf i created
17:58:35  <samu> correction: not only on the borders, but also further inside mainland
18:04:50  <Alberth> there is a settings that controls how far from the border it may spawn, afaik

18:27:07  <igorsenvad> hello
18:27:15  <igorsenvad> I have server default openttd, was wanting to put a game mode, style "Quick Goal" but I don't know how, I searched for gamescripts but it is complex. Want a server to play with my friends that who can achieve such value of firm WINS. How do I do it?
18:29:42  <Alberth> donwload a gamescript of your choice
18:30:15  <Alberth> in the intro screen, open the "ai/game" window, and activate the game script
18:30:35  <Alberth> back in the intro screen, start a MP game
18:30:55  <igorsenvad> I don't think a gamescript in this style "quick goal"
18:31:18  <Alberth> what does that mean?
18:32:25  <Alberth> what is "quick goal" to you?
18:32:44  <igorsenvad> Type a game mode where one reaches 15 million won
18:33:03  <igorsenvad> 15 million value company
18:33:15  <Alberth> oh, right
18:33:31  *** Pereba [~UserNick@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:33:52  <Alberth> you could be right, I don't remember seeing such a script
18:34:13  <Alberth> but I don't care for such goals either, so maybe my memory is wrong
18:34:46  <andythenorth> I don’t know of that goal
18:34:56  <andythenorth> not the hardest GS to code probably
18:35:12  <andythenorth> igorsenvad: try NoCarGoal (NCG)
18:35:22  <andythenorth> it’s not what you asked, but you can set it for a quick goal
18:35:28  <andythenorth> it’s time based though, not ‘first to win'
18:35:53  <igorsenvad> ok
18:36:10  <andythenorth> Silicon Valley is also usable for quick goals
18:36:18  <andythenorth> and is ‘first to win’
18:37:18  <Alberth> ^^ those scripts make you build a good network and transport cargo

18:42:16  <igorsenvad> How to open .nut ? Note block?
18:43:00  <Alberth> notepad++  works well
18:43:03  <samu> am I being paranoid or not?
18:43:19  <samu> can oil rigs spawn anywhere in the map
18:43:31  <samu> like, inland water?
18:43:39  <samu> :(
18:43:44  <Alberth> I have seen them do that
18:43:47  <samu> what ar the creation rules
18:44:24  <Alberth> > 1960, afaik
18:44:54  <b_jonas> samu: I think there's a limit on how close to the map edge they have to be ... or maybe that applies only to oil refineries?
18:45:10  <samu> I'm unsure now
18:45:25  <samu> i'm sure that oil refineries behave like that, but not sure about oil rig
18:45:54  <Alberth> and on water, of course

18:49:12  <samu> i navigated into here:
18:49:50  <samu> Available procedures to check whether an industry may build at a given location.
18:50:05  <Alberth> same list :)
18:50:53  *** igorsenvad [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Quit: Page closed]
18:52:05  <samu> one thing is placing a oil rig in the scenario editor, apparently it lets me build anywhere there is water, into mainland
18:52:13  <samu> another thing is seeing it spawn in a real game
18:52:50  <samu> and i dont think it spawn in the interior
18:52:55  <samu> only at border
18:53:12  <Alberth>
18:54:08  <Alberth> you can add new restrictions to your grf
18:54:20  <Alberth> don't know how, though :(
18:55:12  <samu> i just don't want to change the spawning rules
18:55:30  <samu> keep the same rules
18:55:34  <samu> pretty much
18:55:44  *** roidal [] has joined #openttd
18:57:50  <roidal> is there a way to change difficulty options during a game?
18:58:24  <roidal> like vehicle running costs
18:59:41  <Alberth> if it is not greyed out, you can
19:01:15  <samu> re-testing oil rig spawning
19:01:33  <Alberth> roidal: 3rd button on the main toolbar has a drop-down for selecting settings
19:01:45  <samu> they're not spawning during the 1950-1960 period
19:01:48  <samu> this part is correct
19:01:54  <Alberth> yay :)
19:02:45  <samu> ok, so it's missing a check or maybe that 0xFF is wrong
19:02:57  <samu> and should be clear instead?
19:03:12  <samu> brb
19:04:03  <samu> yeah, running two games in parallel with mucho water, I confirm that default oil rigs are only spawning near map borders
19:04:18  <samu> and my version is letting them spawn everywhere there is water

19:31:09  <samu> using mouse to drag a .nml file into nmlc.exe and it creates a .grf
19:31:16  <samu> awesome
19:32:35  <samu> :( 'clear' vs '0xFF' - nothing different
19:33:29  <Supercheese> Is not clear defined explicitly as 0xFF in NML constants?
19:34:12  <samu> I don't know
19:35:11  * Supercheese checks
19:35:54  <Alberth> if isinstance(tile, expression.Identifier) and tile.value == 'clear':
19:35:54  <Alberth>                     tile = expression.ConstantNumeric(0xFF)
19:35:58  <Alberth> looks that way
19:36:13  <samu> oh, so 0xFF is the same as clear
19:36:17  <samu> :(
19:36:24  <Alberth> or rather, 'clear' gets rewritten to 0xFF
19:36:30  <Supercheese>                 if isinstance(tile, expression.Identifier) and tile.value == 'clear':
19:36:32  <Supercheese>                     tile = expression.ConstantNumeric(0xFF)
19:36:32  *** shirish [~quassel@] has joined #openttd
19:36:36  <Supercheese> so, yeah
19:36:56  <Supercheese> not quite as explicit as some NML constants, but it's there
19:36:59  <samu> oil rigs must have had a special water type
19:37:06  <Alberth> that explains why nothing changed :)
19:37:24  <samu> that tile probably can only be placed near map border
19:37:26  <samu> i dunn
19:37:27  <samu> o
19:38:40  <samu> can you distinguish a water tile that is close to map border and another that is inside mainland?
19:39:18  <samu> or maybe it's not the layout
19:39:21  <samu> and the check
19:39:22  <samu>
19:39:25  <samu> this thing?
19:39:39  <samu> how do I implement this text into the nml?
19:41:52  *** luaduck_zzz is now known as luaduck
19:42:52  <samu>
19:43:02  <samu> how was the industry created part also seems important
19:43:25  <samu> 4 ways to spawn a oil rig :(
19:43:54  <Alberth> derive your rig from the original oil rig industry, then you have the settings already
19:44:17  <Supercheese> still on the oilrig stuff, eh?
19:44:27  <Supercheese> and still going for tile layouts?
19:46:01  <samu> yes, i discovered a different spawning behaviour
19:46:15  <samu> and now i'm trying to figure it out
19:51:52  <samu> isn't that what I've done already albert?
19:52:58  <samu> how do I "derive"
19:53:25  <Alberth> you have to set an industry to use as template or something like that, iirc
19:54:01  <Alberth> which basically means the game copies all settings of that industry type to your new industry type
19:55:15  <samu> all, except the layout?
19:55:26  <samu> hmm, must investigate
19:55:50  <Alberth> all, as far as I know, but you then set a new layout?
19:57:24  <samu> the layout is to replace the original, but still use all its rules
19:57:45  <samu> creation rules, settings, properties, etc.. only the tilelayout map
19:57:49  <samu> is edited
19:58:24  <samu> I don't know the technical terms
19:59:25  *** roidal [] has quit [Quit: WeeChat 1.0.1]
20:00:46  <samu> Each layout have it's own placement check rules/properties?
20:01:12  <Alberth> don't know
20:04:57  <samu> if it currently is not allowing me to build one oil rig adjacent to each other, then it is doing a placement check, right? Maybe the layout needs more properties on the layout
20:05:14  <samu> lol redundancy, my head is exploding
20:05:58  <samu> 'layout settings'
20:08:19  <samu> what exactly happens when the game spawns an industry? If I could understand this process, things would be easier
20:12:26  <andythenorth> if you’re prepared to translate nfo -> nml, I still find it easier to read the nfo part of newgrf wiki
20:12:53  <andythenorth> approximately (I might have the order wrong, but industry_cmd.cpp knows the order if you want to check):
20:13:12  <andythenorth> - game randomly selects a tile for the N tile of the industry
20:13:28  <andythenorth> - game sees if the tile meets the *industry* location check criteria
20:13:49  <andythenorth> - game tries a random layout to see if it will physically fit the location
20:14:03  <andythenorth> - can’t remember if the game cycles all layouts at that location, but the code will know
20:14:14  <andythenorth> - game runs the *tile* location checks
20:14:22  <andythenorth> (for every tile in the layout)
20:14:30  <andythenorth> industry is built or fails
20:14:38  <andythenorth> game will try n times to build before failing
20:14:58  <andythenorth> if you want the canonical answer, read industry_cmd.cpp, not my summary
20:15:31  <andythenorth> there are also some steps, like levelling land, and running the newgrf location cbs etc
20:19:12  <samu> wow, i found the original oil rig layout static const IndustryTileTable _tile_table_oil_rig_0[] = {
20:19:53  <samu> range differs slightly than mine

20:35:15  <samu> yep, wiki layout is wrong
20:35:31  <frosch123> what do you think is wrong?
20:35:32  <samu> I'll show you, about to finish drawing it
20:35:48  <samu> just dont know how to convert 0-255 to 0-FF
20:37:07  <samu> 24 in hexadecimal is 18?
20:37:21  <frosch123> @base 10 16 24
20:37:21  <DorpsGek> frosch123: 18
20:37:55  <samu> well, I'll assume those hex values are correct
20:38:22  <frosch123> well, i assume you swapped x and y :p

20:40:33  <frosch123> ah, you fell for that
20:40:44  <frosch123> well, your mistake was to take numbers literally
20:40:50  <frosch123> but ttd was programmed in assembly
20:41:03  <dreck> 1+1 is not literally 3? :) (sorry maybe bad joke)
20:41:06  <frosch123> so you just work around two's compliment in randmo places
20:41:18  <samu> ugh :(
20:41:32  <__ln__> it's almost certainly complement, not compliment
20:41:37  <samu> if only I knew better
20:42:18  <Alberth> __ln__: it is
20:43:06  <frosch123> samu: you are lucky. assembler programmers are at least better than fortran programmers
20:44:51  <samu> no idea what's a fortran or assembler, so, wiki is right after all, both are right
20:44:57  <samu> ?
20:45:11  <samu> except my new draw
20:45:13  <Alberth> quite, writing an assembler program for assembly language is not so trivial
20:52:56  <samu> it's the only tiletable with negative coordinates :(
20:53:00  <samu> quite special that oil rig
20:56:04  <frosch123> hmm, actually ottd could be wrong here

22:11:19  <planetmaker> which may not be bug-free. Or the grf compiler produced a faulty grf. Or... :)
