00:00:07  <juzza1> ill try to find the exact rev when it was changed  tomorrow
00:00:21  <juzza1> if it's unintentional
00:00:41  <Eddi|zuHause> afair people complained that they couldn't align 4x sprites properly
00:00:58  <Eddi|zuHause> because they jumped 4px per click instead of 1px
00:01:39  <juzza1> ok
00:03:21  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't know what the new behaviour is. maybe it needs further improvement
00:09:59  <samu> i can't do this, I'm overwhelmed
00:13:09  <Eddi|zuHause> samu: what did you expect? learning c++ in an hour?
00:14:00  <samu> no, of course not, reading the first part of the book and i'm already lost
00:14:22  <Eddi|zuHause> samu: it might take years before you can produce actually useful code. but you'll never be able to do that if you stop now.
00:14:32  <samu> there's a lot of stuff to have in mind before starting a project
00:14:59  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, and about 99% of your projects will never become reality
00:15:16  <Eddi|zuHause> but that 1% will never exist if you don't try
00:17:14  <samu> gosh, I'm gonna create a word document and write down my ideas first, else I can't start
00:19:34  <samu> my mind gets stuck, i think too much, my thinking suddenly gets lost, my thinking process ... get stuck all the time, I'm always going around and around and never get anywhere
00:19:51  <samu> trying to follow my line of though
00:20:00  <samu> bah
00:21:00  <samu> and i have attention deficit
00:21:07  <samu> i'm easily distracted
00:21:51  <samu> I wanna do this, but at the same time I get stuck while trying...
00:23:17  <Eddi|zuHause> tip: try smaller and smaller projects, until you find one that you can actually follow through

00:44:04  <raincomplex> sounds like you need to slow down a bit
00:44:50  <raincomplex> i've found that being "stuck" usually means you are having a problem and aren't seeing the problem
00:45:43  <raincomplex> very simple example, say you are drawing a train and you've got the linework but can't get past that

03:23:30  <Flygon__> Diablo-D3: OpenTTD is addictive for one reason
03:23:34  <Flygon__> And one reason only
03:23:52  <Flygon__> It totally followed Ragnarok Online's path in using NewGRFs to pioneer game updates
03:23:53  <Flygon__> :B
03:23:55  *** Flygon__ is now known as Flygon
03:24:08  <Diablo-D3> smoke_fumus: man I was in a 25k citybuilder game, constant plane crashing except me
03:24:17  <Flygon> (Ragnarok Online uses a semi-compressed .grf format to store all of it's games files for faster content access)
03:24:30  <Diablo-D3> Flygon: its not like modding that way is new
03:24:38  <Diablo-D3> Flygon: hell, games before doom were doing that shit
03:24:45  <Flygon> I'm not talking about modding :B
03:25:06  <Flygon> Gravity's patches basically came in form of .grf files that were merged with the master .grf file
03:34:13  <smoke_fumus> Diablo-D3: citybuilder kinda sucks
03:34:14  <Diablo-D3> Flygon: thats not new either
03:34:18  <Diablo-D3> smoke_fumus: it does and doesnt
03:34:36  <Diablo-D3> theres a few ... I dunno, bugs I guess, that allow really quick building
03:35:08  <Diablo-D3> Flygon: quake3 did updates to the base content through more paks
03:37:52  <smoke_fumus> Diablo-D3: if i want to play city builder - i'll launch sim city 4, thank you very much
03:38:25  <smoke_fumus> or cities xl
03:38:29  <smoke_fumus> or cities in motion
03:38:53  <smoke_fumus> or just released Cities: Skylines
03:38:58  <smoke_fumus> hm...i should buy that one
03:39:05  <smoke_fumus> wait, almost released. march 10
03:45:52  <Diablo-D3> smoke_fumus: lol.
03:45:58  <Diablo-D3> smoke_fumus: well its nice for multiplayer
03:46:06  <Diablo-D3> it gives the game and end goal
03:54:42  <Flygon> Diablo-D3: Yeah, but RO's the only other game I've personally see explicitly call them GRF's :P
03:56:03  <Diablo-D3> ahh
03:56:07  <Diablo-D3> well I doubt its the same format =P
03:56:13  <Diablo-D3> even quake cant keep paks straight
03:56:20  <Diablo-D3> quake1 paks and quake3 pk3s arent the same =P
03:58:11  <Flygon> Diablo: Nah, just the same file extension, terminology, and general purpose (semi-compressing a folder and file tree into a single file for faster disk access)
03:58:38  <Flygon> Tempting to see what happens if OTTD's GRF mechanism was ported to RO, RO's GRFs converted to use OTTD's method, set up a private server
03:58:52  <Flygon> And utterly brainfuck anyone that tries to disassemble the GRF with standard RO tools :B
03:58:54  <Diablo-D3> Im surprised ottd grfs arent just zips.
04:06:44  <Flygon> That's basically what RO's GRFs are
04:06:50  <Flygon> Propitary zips
04:07:03  <Diablo-D3> ahh

11:14:28  <V453000> FRIDAY FRIDAY
11:14:32  <V453000> fuck everything
11:14:37  <V453000> bridge time
11:14:40  <Diablo-D3> heh
11:14:57  <Eddi|zuHause> it's friday the 13th
11:15:08  <Diablo-D3> I should start up a openttd server that is like the rest and runs citybuilder....
11:15:13  <Diablo-D3> but the goal is a 100k city.
11:15:26  <Diablo-D3> and it starts the year that everything is available
11:15:35  <Diablo-D3> either that, or starts in the brutal past
11:15:48  <V453000> I need to get running the last piece of YETI in order to make it a true citybuilder :)
11:16:44  <Eddi|zuHause> you need yeti houses?
11:17:35  <Diablo-D3> veti?
11:17:40  <Diablo-D3> er yeti?
11:17:48  <V453000> not really Eddi :)
11:17:55  <Diablo-D3> what is this yeti
11:18:14  <V453000> http://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/yeti
11:18:39  <Eddi|zuHause> the  Yeti Extremely Tedious Industries. or so :p
11:18:41  <Diablo-D3> that looks interesting
11:18:50  <Diablo-D3> but no basically I just want huger shit
11:18:58  <Diablo-D3> like enable 14x14 stations
11:19:12  <Diablo-D3> and other crazy shit
11:19:17  <V453000> http://dev.openttdcoop.org/issues/7301 concept which should allow for stuff :)
11:19:22  <V453000> 14x14 isnt that huge
11:19:34  <Diablo-D3> its huge when 7x7 just isnt cutting it for 25k =P
11:19:40  <Eddi|zuHause> it's two tiles bigger than default!
11:19:57  <Diablo-D3> Eddi|zuHause: er?
11:20:15  <V453000> Diablo-D3: well building only one station per city is pretty boring on itself :P
11:20:16  <Eddi|zuHause> default station spread is 12
11:20:26  <Diablo-D3> er
11:22:24  <planetmaker> surprise, surprise. And eddi is  right
11:22:34  <V453000> :)
11:23:33  <Diablo-D3> then why do servers use such small shit?
11:23:48  <planetmaker> because huge stations are easy-peasy
11:24:06  <V453000> many players abuse the station spread more than utilize it
11:24:08  <planetmaker> allowing small stations is a difficulty setting of sorts
11:26:27  <Eddi|zuHause> Diablo-D3: so, what's stopping you from running 100k city builder?

11:28:01  <V453000> the problems are real
11:30:55  <Diablo-D3> I dunno
11:31:07  <Diablo-D3> last time I started a server no one ever joined
11:32:34  <planetmaker> a server running only very occasionally is not very attractive to the occasional player. They prefer to join servers which are there regularily and which they can rely on to provide the experience they expect
11:32:47  <planetmaker> and each server offers a different experience.
11:32:56  *** shirish_ [~quassel@117.195.112.119] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:37:45  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, either you have a few friends that you agree on to join the server at the same time, or you have a regularly scheduled time for random people to rely on
11:38:10  <Eddi|zuHause> part of the reason why city builder servers are popular is that they start over every few hours
11:38:21  <Eddi|zuHause> so whenever you have time, you can join a fresh game
11:38:32  <Eddi|zuHause> and when you can't, it doesn't matter
11:40:25  <Eddi|zuHause> so, if you define something like "server runs every day from 18:00 CET to 0:00 CET" [that is probably the user peak hours, ca. 30 years of game time]

11:59:55  <Romazoon> Hi all,
12:01:19  <V453000> hy
12:01:23  <V453000> ,
12:01:25  <Romazoon> i wanted to know waht you guys think of the avalaible feature to update newgrf. i think it s nice, but it should also allow to update just a single newgrf and not the full list
12:01:41  <V453000> it does allow that I thought?
12:02:16  <Romazoon> how ? i tried highlighting just one newgrf and click on update newgrf, but it does update the all list not just the highlighted one
12:02:24  <V453000> hm
12:03:04  <V453000> guess not then :)
12:03:21  <V453000> idk, but doing it manually is just one step aside :P
12:03:29  <V453000> ah not in the preset though
12:03:32  <V453000> 2 clicks there
12:03:38  <V453000> hm
12:03:41  <Romazoon> yes that s how i do it ;)
12:03:41  <V453000> rawr though :)
12:04:47  <Eddi|zuHause> Romazoon: so how often do you think people want to keep an unupdated NewGRF, when they have the upgrade available?
12:05:11  <Romazoon> hmm, as often as the upgrade break compatibility
12:05:12  <V453000> ^ that
12:05:16  <supermop> night
12:05:18  <V453000> you usually want to at least try it
12:05:23  <V453000> change back eventually
12:05:34  <Eddi|zuHause> if you don't want it, just delete the NewGRF
12:05:36  <V453000> compatibility .. with old savegames?
12:05:56  <Romazoon> some upgrade of newgrf are uncompatible with their oldervesion
12:06:04  <Romazoon> Fish
12:06:09  <Romazoon> as exemple
12:06:18  <Romazoon> that became Squid
12:06:22  <Eddi|zuHause> it should probably check that if done in a savegame...
12:06:51  <planetmaker> eh, you do not update the used newgrfs of a savegame anyway...
12:06:51  <V453000> oh you can also update stuff in a savegame? :0
12:06:55  <planetmaker> no
12:07:04  <V453000> I would have been surprised :D
12:07:06  <planetmaker> unless you want to break stuff and accepted to know what you do
12:07:14  <Eddi|zuHause> outside the savegame, what does it matter?
12:07:14  <planetmaker> but that doesn't need an extra button
12:07:26  <planetmaker> and outside, indeed, breaking compatibility doesn't matter
12:07:49  <Romazoon> ok you guys have make a valid point
12:08:11  <Romazoon> *have made
12:08:28  <planetmaker> yeah. updating the preset doesn't mean that any file is deleted or that your saves will start using the new versions
12:08:38  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: there's still a difference between making a supposedly working update (according to compatible version), vs. a known broken update
12:09:03  <Romazoon> yes i totally love that feature for my preset....

12:09:05  <planetmaker> I don't understand what you try to say, Eddi|zuHause
12:09:18  <Romazoon> but i just keep using nightlies of newgrfs...with update regularly
12:10:01  <planetmaker> that doesn't change anything of what was said
12:10:07  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: let's suppose i use two GRFs in a savegame, and i downloaded an update for both of them. grf A is marked compatible with its older version, and grf B is marked incompatible (by the author of the GRF)
12:10:17  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: now i want to update the grfs in the savegame
12:10:19  <planetmaker> unless *you* overwrite existing files, Romazoon. But that's nothing OpenTTD would do
12:10:51  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, don't update grfs in a savegame. You know what you do, when you do. That's the deal
12:10:53  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: it should allow changing the compatible, but disallow changing the incompatible

12:11:05  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: it's not about "knowing what you do"
12:11:18  <Romazoon> Exactly what eddi said
12:13:04  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: the premise is already that you "know what you do", because you enabled changing of NewGRFs ingame.

12:13:21  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: but the game should still use this data of known compatible/incompatible that the author put in
12:13:25  <planetmaker> often the compatibility is only a claimed compatibility, I recon. Mistakes happen. And easily
12:13:39  <Eddi|zuHause> that's also besides the point
12:13:48  <planetmaker> it is indeed
12:13:59  <Romazoon> well i don t pretend to know what i do ;) i mess things up often... i try not to report when it s obvious it s my mistake that s it ;)
12:14:39  <planetmaker> in that case it's about newgrf authors knowing what they do. They often don't when it comes to indicating compatibility to earlier versions
12:14:45  <Romazoon> thanks Eddi for finding the right words for me !
12:14:45  <planetmaker> and I cannot even blame them
12:15:09  <planetmaker> it's extremely easy to introduce small incmpatible updates
12:15:15  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: you still miss the point
12:15:30  <planetmaker> anyhow, assuming that's not an issue, one cannot update compatibly marked newgrfs in a savegame.
12:15:57  <Eddi|zuHause> under the premise that EVERYONE knows what they do, and ALL THE DATA is correct. the "upgrade" button should change compatible versions, and disregard incompatible ones
12:16:27  <Romazoon> or let the player choose the ones he wants to upgrade (since he know what he s doing)
12:16:27  <Eddi|zuHause> if used inside a savegame
12:16:29  <planetmaker> yes. But there's no such functionality currently anywhere for savegames
12:17:01  <planetmaker> Romazoon, no, we do not allow that unless you are a newgrf or scenario developer. Only those know what they do (by indicating they are a developer)
12:17:28  <Romazoon> I am both
12:19:01  <Romazoon> anyway, thanks for your answer, i wanted to hear your opinion before making a new flyspray suggestion
12:19:13  <Romazoon> and i see it s not necessary to make one
12:19:39  <Romazoon> i will update manually when i really need to, and fully enjoy the "uppgrade" for my preset list
12:19:40  <Eddi|zuHause> <planetmaker> yes. But there's no such functionality currently anywhere for savegames <-- then the question is, why? all the data is there. use it.
12:19:54  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, because simply no-one wrote that patch yet
12:20:35  <planetmaker> yes, all data is there. And it could be used. At least for people who are scenario_ or newgrf_developer
12:21:30  <planetmaker> Romazoon, you heard about one opinion. Mine is neither official nor representative
12:22:23  <planetmaker> And the main point is: no-one wrote what you asked. So far I only described the is- state
12:23:14  <Romazoon> i know, but i totally get your point in a way, i m asking for a feature that only "very" advanced player should use, i m not able to develop that patch, and there is a work around solution existing so why bother with it and bring more complexity to the ui
12:23:42  <planetmaker> because at least two people would like it?
12:23:56  <planetmaker> and I don't see much complexity in the UI. The current buttons would do
12:24:11  <Romazoon> well that was also the point of me showing off in here and suggest it ;)
12:25:45  <Romazoon> now the idea is in the air at least, not just in my mind (and Eddi's mind wich maybe also wanted that before)
12:26:29  <Romazoon> while i m here, i have a question regarding opcodes...
12:26:34  <Eddi|zuHause> i probably want something different from you...
12:28:52  <Romazoon> what can i expect from putting more opcode than the "original" preset of 10K opcode ?
12:29:39  <Romazoon> would it allow Ai to deal with bigger maps and more vehicles ?
12:31:10  <planetmaker> it's a setting to tune speed of ai and scripts
12:32:53  <Romazoon> so i presume for a larger map i would probably want to set that up ?
12:33:21  <Eddi|zuHause> that may help, but it may also just clog your CPU
12:33:22  <Romazoon> i experience often on large maps that AI are lazy
12:33:46  <planetmaker> humans are similarily lazy in comparison to map size
12:33:48  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, AIs have often not good heuristics in dealing with large amounts of data
12:34:05  <Eddi|zuHause> so they spend ages analyzing the map, while not doing anything
12:34:31  <planetmaker> but yes, AI handle it worse. They are not taught to ignore most of the map and just getting started on a small part
12:34:39  <Eddi|zuHause> they too often try to find "the best" solution, instead of going what's "good enough"
12:34:54  <Romazoon> clog my CPU is not what i m looking for ( i m able to do it alone  ;) don t need help from AI.)
12:35:04  <planetmaker> Which reminds me: it would be awesome to have a regular AI competition with some more visbility
12:35:10  <Eddi|zuHause> that's also why two of the same AI personality get in each others way, not accomplishing anything
12:35:10  <planetmaker> AI development seems mostly stalled
12:35:22  <Flygon> What if I told you
12:35:27  <Flygon> I was actually a robot
12:35:36  <Flygon> And I am an AI
12:35:38  <planetmaker> direct order: start competition now :P
12:35:38  <V453000> robots dont have bad ideas
12:35:43  <Romazoon> oh Eddi ! really ?? so that s i guess the problem i encounter with my "multiple Civil Ai"....
12:36:35  <Eddi|zuHause> Romazoon: probably. AIs think too deterministicly, so they always try the same routes that the other one did already

12:38:04  <planetmaker> Romazoon, if you play with AI it usually is a good idea to try a different one for each AI company you want
12:39:37  <Romazoon> thanks guys for the answers, make things more clear now :)
12:40:55  <Romazoon> planetmaker : i do use AI only for "eyecandy" purpose, not looking for competition, and i liked the way civil AI built roads, so running multiple of them usually create a nice road network without effort

19:38:24  <Eddi|zuHause> cucumbers
19:38:48  <samu> question, i know there is a basecosts newgrf, but in the original OpenTTD, why do canals, aqueducts and locks have such high costs in them?
19:38:52  <Alberth> broke
19:39:22  <Eddi|zuHause> samu: somebody thought they should.
19:39:41  <samu> are they dependent of water costs?
19:39:43  <Eddi|zuHause> samu: for the most part, prices in this game are completely arbitrary
19:39:44  <samu> tied?
19:40:08  <Alberth> no simple way to move smoke of an engine, it seems
19:40:49  <samu> if i want to reduce aqueduct cost, without affecting the cost of clearing water, I just cant?
19:40:52  <Eddi|zuHause> Alberth: i think there was a property where the smoke should emerge (along the engine's travelling direction
19:41:03  <Eddi|zuHause> Alberth: plus there is the new effects callback
19:41:30  <Alberth> yeah, just want to move the smoke to the chimney, instead of before it :)
19:43:37  <Eddi|zuHause> "Visual effects and wagon power (22) By default, the visual effect of train engines is determined by the traction type (property 19). With this option you can change the type of effect as well as the position of it relative to the vehicle."
19:44:11  <Eddi|zuHause> nml probably has that encoded in some macro thingie

19:48:28  <frosch123> Alberth: i think the smoke position is often wrong for some directions
19:48:42  <frosch123> either the alignment of the smoke-sprite is not centered to the spawning point
19:48:59  <frosch123> or the vehicles do not have the chimney in the same position for all orientations
19:49:13  <frosch123> of course the stretching does not make it easier :)
19:49:25  <Alberth> make longer smoke :p
19:49:34  <frosch123> but if you want to commit to it, there is a callback to allow positioning depending on vehicle orientation :)

19:49:42  <samu> question, who came up with these prices for aqueducts? they're so prohibitive! there must be a reason for this to be the base price
19:50:10  <Alberth> samu: water is supposed to be an obstacle
19:50:21  <Eddi|zuHause> samu: like i said. someone pulled a number out of his arse. and that became the price.
19:51:08  <samu> hmm
19:51:09  <frosch123> https://paste.openttdcoop.org/px1iu8hht?/px1iu8hht <- ugly, but works
19:51:14  <frosch123> no idea how to make it nicer
19:52:43  <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: are you sure the toolbar is always initialized before the statusbar?
19:53:07  <samu> I must have misconcepted something
19:53:14  <samu> misunderstood
19:53:36  <NGC3982> Are you sure you have not underconcepted it?
19:53:46  <samu> the base price of aqueduct has nothing to do with the base price of wate?
19:53:58  <samu> it's totally independent of each other
19:54:00  <samu> ?
19:54:36  <Eddi|zuHause> samu: there are probably two base costs, one for clearing and one for building
19:54:42  <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: yes, ShowVitalWindows
19:55:00  <samu> so, I see

19:55:44  <Eddi|zuHause> i resend that
19:55:52  <Eddi|zuHause> resent?
19:56:19  <samu> the prohibitive costs have a solution apparently
19:56:45  <samu> just reduce their base cost, no side effects will happen
19:56:54  <samu> no extra work, no brainstorming of ideas
19:56:57  <samu> I just misconcepted it

20:06:22  <Alberth> hi hi andy
20:07:56  <Alberth> and both descriptions have 640
20:09:06  <frosch123> the toolbar did it like that also before
20:09:11  <frosch123> no idea why
20:09:51  <samu> suggestion, come up with better prices for ship routes
20:09:56  <samu> seriously
20:10:54  <samu> it's ok that they're expensive in relation to roads, rails, but the way it currently is, is just way... over the top
20:11:15  <frosch123> i could try moving it to OnInitialPosition
20:11:34  <samu> especially the aqueduct
20:12:01  <samu> that thing brings down 10 years of money accumulation instantly
20:12:02  <Alberth> main toolbar is around 700 pixels here
20:12:49  <frosch123> main toolbar sizes according to icon size
20:12:52  <frosch123> the 640 means nothing
20:12:53  <Alberth> samu: use the already available sea instead
20:13:49  <samu> why so much aversion to lowering prices?
20:13:58  <Alberth> frosch123: but you're copying default width, ie 640
20:14:07  <frosch123> or i can make InitializePositionSize virtual, and put it there
20:14:15  <Alberth> samu: that's why there are basecost grfs
20:14:31  <frosch123> Alberth: w->window_desc->default_width = nbuttons * this->smallest_x;
20:14:44  <frosch123> default_width is not used, you can set it to 0
20:14:50  <frosch123> probably i should do that, do avoid confusion
20:15:04  <Alberth> or add a comment :)
20:15:49  <Alberth> I can live with the current solution
20:16:27  <Alberth> virtual InitializeSizePosition has problems with getting the size of both windows?
20:17:24  <samu> I don't understand the logic
20:17:29  <frosch123> the toolbar is always available when the statusbar is
20:17:37  <frosch123> the problem is resizing the window
20:17:44  <frosch123> where to define its size
20:17:58  <frosch123> InitializePositionSize seems to be the place, if not using default_width
20:18:18  <Alberth> I agree
20:18:26  <Alberth> perhaps that's a better place
20:20:38  <samu> buoys are cheap, ship depots are cheap, docks are cheap, then suddenly canals and all the new added structures are overly expensive, don't really get why

20:28:21  <Romazoon> well once upon a time, canal were the Highspeed lines of the ancient world
20:28:23  <samu> and planning a water route in-land also needs some terraforming care, it needs quite some space, and flexibility
20:28:31  <Romazoon> and they were damn expensive
20:28:57  <Romazoon> in money, and especially in number of death
20:29:03  <samu> it isn't always possible to have a ship going into some location
20:29:33  <samu> the game won't suddenly turn into "everyone is making ships" if the costs were cheaper
20:29:55  <Romazoon> and nowaday building a canal or an acqueduct is doubtly cheaper than it use to be (inflation is turned on in real world)

21:39:36  <samu> used the most expensive bridge
21:39:41  <samu> and yet...
21:40:04  <samu> from 3997 to 52500 is a huge difference

21:49:16  <andythenorth> libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile
21:49:19  <andythenorth> is a tedious warning
21:49:26  <andythenorth> as I can neither suppress it (afaict)
21:49:32  <andythenorth> nor does it tell me which files are affected

21:56:31  <andythenorth> how does nmlc print things to stdout?
21:56:35  * andythenorth could probably look
21:57:32  <andythenorth> hmm
21:57:38  <andythenorth> maybe —quiet will shut up libpng
21:57:50  <andythenorth> I can’t see valid errors right now due to acres of invalid errors
21:58:06  <andythenorth> but eh, with —quiet, do I see anything? :P

21:59:23  <andythenorth> how do I figure out which libpng bundles is using?
22:00:21  <andythenorth> and why does the Iron Horse build look broken :( https://jenkins.openttdcoop.org/job/iron-horse/lastStableBuild/console
22:00:25  <andythenorth> what _have_ I done
22:00:30  * andythenorth is glum
22:11:14  <Alberth> hmm, how is the libpng of bundles of interest?
22:11:59  <Alberth> I wouldn't expect libpng to emit lines with sprite numbers
22:12:01  <frosch> andythenorth: libpng 1.2

22:13:26  <frosch> yeah, those look like nforenum messages
22:13:34  <frosch> do you do custom linking again?
22:13:38  <andythenorth> yes
22:13:41  <andythenorth> I’m sure I fixed this once
22:13:51  <andythenorth> my browser url history is full of links to this stuff
22:14:19  <andythenorth> I am now distracted though by why bundles appears to build everything thrice
22:14:32  <andythenorth> I’m going to ignore that :P
22:15:15  <andythenorth> it has been a week of fighting dependencies and ports, I thought I’d won :)
22:15:17  <andythenorth> wrong
22:19:41  <frosch> start using more chroots and vms
22:19:49  <andythenorth> considered it
22:20:03  <frosch> do you think i messed up my system by installing pyramid and other silly stuff for firs? :p
22:20:07  <andythenorth> seriously, considered vagrant for dev environments

22:52:41  <supermop> hi
23:00:11  <samu> im coming up with a balanced, and sensible price structure for canals, aqueducks and locks
23:00:24  <samu> aqueducts*
23:00:35  <samu> it also must make sense
23:01:22  <samu> aqueducts have an exponential cost
23:02:03  <samu> the longer it is, the costlier, this complicates things a bit for shorter ones, but it makes sense the way it is for long ones. They are not to be abused

23:19:01  <supermop> do people abuse canals?
23:19:22  <supermop> i rarely build them
23:19:38  <supermop> when i do its often to decorate the center of some city
23:19:43  <samu> canals, no, though they're still expensive

23:19:59  <samu> cost is addictive, not exponential for canals
23:20:15  <samu> it's exponential for aqueducts
23:20:43  <samu> i dont wanna make a small aqueducts cheaper than an equivalent in canal tiles
23:20:54  <supermop> in 8 years of playing openttd i don't think i have every built one aquaduct
23:21:43  <samu> i also don't want to make canals so much cheap that they become better means of transportation
23:22:02  <samu> but this exponential thing in aqueducts are complicating my math
23:22:49  <samu> dont want them cheaper than rail or roads for example
23:23:37  <samu> then there's locks, they have a fixed price
23:24:51  <samu> aquaduct of 4 tiles + 2 canal tiles vs 2 locks, 6 tiles
23:25:17  <samu> which one should be more expensive?
23:27:22  <supermop> i dont know depends on what sort of canal you imagine the canals to be
23:27:51  <samu> 2 locks in a row take 6 tiles
23:28:17  <samu> first lock lowers 1 level, second lock raises 1 level
23:28:24  <supermop> a small one for small draft boats should be always cheaper to build aquaduct than any amount of locks, a large one for big ships an aquaduct should not even be alowed
23:28:43  <samu> this can be done the same way with aquaduct
23:29:02  <samu> starts with 1 canal tile, then a 4 sized aquaduct, and ends with 1 more canal tile
23:29:16  <samu> which combination should cost more
23:30:54  <samu> there's an advantage with the aquaduct
23:31:16  <samu> under it, it's possible to create some other routes
23:31:23  <samu> roads under aqueduct
23:31:25  <samu> rails
23:31:34  <samu> with the 2 locks, that way is barred
23:34:12  <samu> in theory, the aquaduct method should cost more
23:35:42  <samu> it's just that it quickly becomes too costly the longer they are, if I set it that way
23:40:07  <samu> lock costs are also tied to the cost of 2 canal tiles, since 2 of the tiles are actually canals. part of the total cost comes from canal cost
23:40:23  <samu> eh... confusing
23:43:04  <samu> once i figure a good pricing scheme, i move on to removal costs, and in the end, maintenance costs
