04:33:38  <Flygon> https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/24/Inspection-locomotive.jpg I'm not sure if this is genius or insane (It's a Track Inspection Car)
04:42:42  <sim-al2> I wonder about the capability of that boiler
04:43:26  <Supercheese> it shouldn't need to be all that powerful
04:43:28  <sim-al2> Good view out the front though (for the passengers, anyway)
04:43:35  <Supercheese> that's the idea
04:43:49  <Supercheese> stroll along, eyes wide for track defects
04:43:58  <Supercheese> speed not a priority
04:44:06  <sim-al2> Seems that it would limit train weight, although this wouldn't be used for much pulling power anyway
04:44:50  <sim-al2> I think the fact that most railroads even now use executive cars instead of locomotives is telling
04:49:40  <sim-al2> Of course, with the power of modern technology, you can just use the regular trains to inspect stuff too: https://youtu.be/_CIWgjxDLNE?t=15
04:50:00  <Flygon> iirc, the British just used ordinary locomotives towing special cas
04:50:03  <Flygon> cars*
04:50:10  <Flygon> It's how VR did that stuff here
04:50:18  <sim-al2> Yeah, we do that too
04:50:54  <sim-al2> For the heavy duty inspection, there's dedicated railcars and coaches with all kinds of special equipment
04:50:55  <Flygon> Current day railways (Metro and V/Line) use BOTH methods
04:51:01  <ConductorCat> :3
04:51:01  <Flygon> Mainly because they have no $$$
04:51:22  <Flygon> There's the one with push-pull locomotives using a converted 50s passenger carriage
04:51:24  <Flygon> And the Railcar one
04:52:52  * ConductorCat imagines the boiler baking the occupants above.
04:53:23  <sim-al2> I think the new Yanamote line trains in Tokyo will have the ability to inspect the line while in service, as the big spotlight and equipment pack on the roof of one of the cars, and the giant barcode-scanner-looking scanning thing haven't been removed in like a year of testing

15:54:34  <V453000> it is great when you put images on reddit (not even long text so they don't have to read stuff), say yo reddit, here are signals, tell me what you think. And first reply I get is a downvote without any comments :D later, 2 comments, shitload of downvotes, some upvotes
15:54:36  <V453000> feels great
15:54:38  <V453000> really
15:54:47  <V453000> also, our civilization is in such deep shit.
15:55:51  <Alberth> so much for global democracy :p
15:56:28  *** TheMask96 [martijn@gluttony.vhost.ne2000.nl] has joined #openttd
15:57:01  <V453000> not even mentioning forums where literally 2 people care about the thing, with rarely someone else adding comments
15:57:13  <V453000> if I wasn't active on IRC, idk what
15:57:32  <V453000> sometimes I wonder why haven't I moved to modding factorio instead
15:58:12  <Alberth> doing work in free time? :)
15:58:35  <V453000> the things I do for openttd are pretty identical to my work
15:59:43  <V453000> or yeah I could even do work instead of openttd
16:01:24  <Alberth> don't know what the reddit community is like, but at tt-forums, you work is too far from the green temperate climate to count as a baseset, for many, I think
16:01:49  <V453000> certainly
16:02:04  <V453000> mainly because 99% of tt-forums are realistic retards, so I should probably be happy for the 2 people eh
16:02:27  <sim-al2> I don't understand why tropic or even artic is so hated
16:02:40  <frosch123> replace the red stripes on the pbs with a small "noob" text
16:02:54  <V453000> sim-al2: weaker electric trains without newgrfs
16:02:58  <V453000> cause noobs don't use newgrfs
16:03:03  <V453000> frosch123: I like that idea
16:03:06  <Alberth> don't know how many regular users read the graphics development group at all
16:03:31  <Alberth> sim-al2: you missed the toyland climate too !  :(
16:03:43  <sim-al2> Yeah, our vanilla (no newgrf) server is way more popular, appearently clicking the download button for newGRFs is too hard?
16:03:57  <Alberth> probably
16:04:10  <Alberth> also, most people are completely lost when you add a newgrf
16:04:29  <sim-al2> Yeah, but Toyland has actually made me feel sick before, so I understand that
16:04:34  <Alberth> all carefully learned knowledge about trains and industries gone
16:04:34  <V453000> sim-al2: btw, adding newgrfs drastically reduces chances that your server will be visited by griefers
16:04:37  <V453000> apparently it IS hard XD
16:04:53  <sim-al2> For the most part, that's true
16:05:13  <sim-al2> We seem to have the very rare, hyper dedicated guy though
16:05:34  <frosch123> V453000: i guess making the two-way pbs red is fine, they should be very rare
16:05:47  <V453000> ye
16:06:05  <frosch123> maybe the one-way should look more similar to the entry signal
16:06:07  <V453000> this is probably final for the modern signals http://www.tt-forums.net/download/file.php?id=189853
16:06:26  <V453000> hm
16:06:29  <V453000> well it kind of is :P
16:06:44  <frosch123> red triangle instead of yellow or so
16:06:49  <frosch123> but no red-white-red
16:07:02  <V453000> mhm
16:07:06  <sim-al2> My thought on the the PBS signals is that the two "forward" (train facing) sides should be half red-white or something, to make seeing the orientation easier
16:07:37  <sim-al2> oh I see you did that already
16:07:48  <frosch123> V453000: i like the combo signals in that screenshot
16:08:00  <V453000> :)
16:08:04  <frosch123> it makes it easy to see that combo=entry+exit
16:08:10  <Alberth> yeah, me too
16:08:40  <V453000> I completely agree
16:08:40  <planetmaker> moo
16:08:42  <V453000> moo pm
16:08:59  <V453000> atm making semaphore signals, they will also have combo=entry+exit
16:09:13  <planetmaker> hm... two-way PBS are common in in-track stations, e.g. used for passenger lines
16:09:40  <V453000> sure but not spammed everywhere :P
16:09:44  <frosch123> planetmaker: yes, but even lazy people do not put them all along the track
16:09:55  <planetmaker> lazy people don't place signals :P
16:10:15  <frosch123> i put one-way signals at distance 8 all the time
16:10:17  <sim-al2> They click-drag them though

16:10:33  <planetmaker> hm, I like this new signal version much better than the first, V453000 :)
16:10:46  <V453000> definitely :) a lot of work was put into it
16:11:07  <planetmaker> they have a significant similarity with the newer versions speed control / radar boxes placed alongside roads :P
16:11:31  <Alberth> perhaps one of the problems at reddit is that you need to study the signals to see the logic behind it
16:11:54  <alluke> i dont think tropic or arctic are hated
16:11:58  <V453000> good point :D you need to know how the game signals work XD
16:12:10  <frosch123> so, entry=horizonal yellow, exit=vertical white. following that i suggest one-way-pbs=horizontal red, two-way-pbs=horizontal red + vertical white
16:12:17  <alluke> but people usually seem to prefer the environment which is similar to the one they live irl
16:12:51  <Alberth> if you make a simple table   "<signal>  Name, (perhaps <old signal>",   it makes a lot more sense
16:13:15  <V453000> I believe 2way PBS should be simpler than 1-way frosch123
16:13:18  <Alberth> toyland, alluke  :)
16:13:25  <alluke> its shit, i can say that
16:13:40  <frosch123> V453000: he, i would expect the reverse :p
16:13:47  <frosch123> 2way pbs is quite wtf
16:13:52  <V453000> Alberth: I even did this http://www.tt-forums.net/download/file.php?id=189840
16:13:56  <sim-al2> Screenshots and videos are definetly the most popular on reddit, discussion not so much
16:14:23  <V453000> frosch123: it is, but visually I think there should be something that is simple as 2way, vs. that 2way with a restrictive element (like horizontal stripe) to demonstrate 1-way only
16:14:31  <frosch123> V453000: anyway, i use 1way pbs similar to entry, and 2way pbs similar to 2way exit
16:14:49  <V453000> well yes frosch123 , they also kind of look somewhat similar
16:14:59  <Alberth> V: Seen that, hmm.      So perhaps explain "red=pbs", "white" means exit, and so on?  with the table
16:15:08  <V453000> 2way PBS does have vertical edges, and 1way pbs does have bright horizontal stripe
16:15:19  <V453000> Alberth: meh
16:15:30  <V453000> people don't read that much text :D except a few
16:16:04  <Alberth> but you have 3 concepts or so?
16:16:10  <Alberth> but yeah, could be :(
16:16:22  <V453000> yeah kind of many concepts :D

16:29:52  <_dp_> you clearly don't play on goal servers :p
16:30:10  <_dp_> pbs is way better there since you can use it for everything and not waste time on signals

16:59:51  <_dp_> V453000, there isn't even a single notion of comparing networks, it's more like an art
17:00:04  <V453000> exactly
17:00:15  <V453000> but it is where people need actual knowledge about the game
17:00:18  <V453000> not just fast fingers
17:01:29  <_dp_> V453000, you need a lot of game knowledge on goal servers too
17:02:03  <V453000> uncomparably less
17:03:11  <_dp_> V453000, won't be so sure... it's just in a different area

17:09:04  <_dp_> V453000, you're talking like you know all about town growth mechanics :p
17:09:12  <Alberth> how can I ever be a proper tycoon??? :)
17:10:31  <V453000> it isn't like town growth mechanics are very complex. Get 5 bus stations, get good ratings at them, build roads which avoid daed ends
17:10:38  <V453000> not much more to do
17:10:50  <V453000> supply resource which gamescript requires, nice
17:11:22  <_dp_> V453000, it's much more complex
17:12:05  <V453000> I would like to hear that then
17:12:18  <V453000> the only thing I remember remaining is town road layout having a big role
17:13:48  <V453000> we read the code of town growth quite intensively with mfb back in the day
17:14:46  <_dp_> V453000, yeah, ofc it does, and there isn't even single "perfect" layout. spiral is pretty close though
17:15:08  <_dp_> so did I :p even did some patches to it after that, and tools for modded client
17:15:40  <V453000> yes various layouts can perform very similarly
17:16:42  <_dp_> did you see this btw? http://dpointer.org/ttd/town_growth/
17:17:24  <V453000> no :D
17:17:25  <_dp_> there are some layout presets if you click "load" and difference is pretty clear actually

17:18:01  <_dp_> V453000, cs is number of cycles town growth wasted btw
17:18:23  <V453000> eight
17:18:27  <V453000> right*
17:24:06  <_dp_> average house pop and cs amount pretty much summarizes quality of layout
17:24:26  <_dp_> but you can also influence it in game dynamically adjusting layout
17:24:48  *** Progman [~progman@p57A19348.dip0.t-ipconnect.de] has joined #openttd
17:25:36  <_dp_> for example, there is a trick with reserving space for houses
17:26:09  <_dp_> or blocking outer town zones with rails to get larger houses
17:26:36  <_dp_> needs a lot of spare time though, since zones change constantly
17:27:05  <V453000> still sounds majorly dull
17:28:38  <_dp_> V453000, well, tell me what's so smart about networks then :p
17:29:40  <V453000> combining signals, managing multi-track traffic, self-managing stations, global network plans, maximizing train efficiency with various things like conditional orders, self regulation, ...
17:34:46  <_dp_> global plan and maximizing efficiency goes for goal too, self regulation wasn't very hard last time I checked, at least when I needed it I figured pretty much all of what's in wiki before even reading it
17:35:10  <_dp_> and have no idea what you mean by other stuff
17:37:54  <V453000> yeah but when you have to hurry you don't get anywhere as good results, and therefore don't use nearly as much complexity
17:38:09  <V453000> self regulation has got a lot of new tricks in the last years
17:38:48  <_dp_> V453000, but when you have to hurry you have whole new dimension to optimize - time :p
17:38:58  <V453000> yeah, mash buttons
17:39:02  <V453000> dumb
17:39:42  <_dp_> V453000, no, that includes trains and networks too
17:40:11  <_dp_> V453000, not only you need designs that are effective but fast too build too
17:40:22  <V453000> which is pretty easy to do
17:40:38  <V453000> connect by closest possible track, build primitive station
17:41:47  <Alberth> you reduce time by reducing complexity of what you build
17:42:00  <V453000> basically, yes
17:42:01  <Alberth> in exchange you build more, probably
17:42:27  <_dp_> you need to max efficiency also
17:42:39  <Alberth> nah, just add more track
17:43:07  <Alberth> scales much better to get more capacity in a short time
17:43:32  <V453000> yes, expanding is not time efficient
17:45:21  <_dp_> Alberth, you rarely need more capacity in one direction than 2-way rail :p
17:45:32  <_dp_> example of trade-off: build hubs or hubless?
17:46:00  <V453000> complex question as fuck XD
17:46:15  <Alberth> I do, regularly, trains run faster when empty :)
17:46:25  <V453000> tiny junctions or none at all XD
17:46:35  <_dp_> V453000, well, what's your answer?
17:47:19  *** srhnsn [~srhnsn@p2003006A6C182A00B12DC629F6A2AE7A.dip0.t-ipconnect.de] has joined #openttd
17:47:25  <V453000> I would say it depends a lot on the layout of what you need to get done, junctions somewhere where necessary, and expand by splitting tracks
17:47:27  <V453000> or something along those lines
17:47:33  <V453000> that just comes from trying it a few times
17:48:23  <_dp_> V453000, I meant hubs, junctions are quite straightforward in goal games
17:48:53  <V453000> in my dictionary hubs and junctions are the same, what is the difference for you?
17:49:01  <V453000> combined stations?
17:49:59  <_dp_> V453000, by hub I mean bring all to one station with transfer and do big line from there
17:50:18  <_dp_> V453000, and hubless is just connecting every industry individually, without transfer
17:50:30  <V453000> right, that is even more retarded than building no junctions XD
17:50:32  <V453000> concept wise
17:50:51  <V453000> idk how it compares in speed, I would say one-directional cargoes like coal would be efficient with it, not sure though
17:52:17  <_dp_> which one r you talking about?
17:52:26  <_dp_> every cargo is 2-way in some sense btw
17:53:31  <_dp_> you can always pick same one on other end :p

17:56:39  *** sim-al2 [~sim-al2@dns25-177.cbu.edu] has joined #openttd
17:56:43  <_dp_> anyway, answer is, hubs are much faster to build and easier to redirect, but less profitable
17:57:43  <_dp_> so, for example, good starting line in cb is coal with hub on town side and hubless on other (if you can build fast enough)
17:57:52  <_dp_> later in game hub is redirected to town
18:07:54  <_dp_> btw, you can't build faster then you get money for it, so mashing buttons is not everything ;)
18:08:47  <_dp_> and with funding there is always what to spend money on

18:53:53  <_dp_> smth needs to be done about selecting direction, at least for block signals
18:54:34  <_dp_> one way you can drag at least
18:54:46  <_dp_> does anyone use dragging without ctrl btw?)
18:57:22  <Alberth> don't know what that does
18:57:48  <Alberth> I have seen people drag all the way instead of just a few tiles in the right direction  though
18:57:57  <_dp_> places signal on segment you marked

18:59:11  <_dp_> yeah, I bet those people don't know about ctrl xD

21:20:14  <andythenorth> it’s “done"
21:24:01  <drac_boy> one slight long grf question - can an industry grf possibly actually check if any train grfs loaded has a specific cargotype listed or not?
21:25:46  <andythenorth> no
