10:34:40  <Wolf01> o/
10:42:14  <crem> \o
10:42:45  <__ln__> o/ + \o = /
10:46:36  <Wolf01> That's... weird
10:56:14  *** JezK has quit IRC
11:09:41  <crem> What is wierd is that 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + ... = -1/12
11:10:49  <__ln__> It most certainly doesn't equal that.
11:13:13  <crem> For some definition of infinite sums, it does!
11:13:16  <Wolf01> If you do it by hand no, but with the theorem yes, too bad it involves complex numbers so it's pure fantasyt
11:13:49  <crem> I does not need complex numbers.
11:14:30  <crem> And people say it's used a lot in quantum physics, where it "agrees with experiments", whatever it means.
11:14:47  *** Sova has quit IRC
11:16:27  <Wolf01> It's because it's a concept and not a real thing, like if you turn on and of a light for a x number of times, if you sum the states you will get that the light was half turned on and half turned off
11:19:04  <crem> Yes, that depends on rules of summation. Classical is a limit of partial sums, which doesn't exist in this case. But if you change definition to limit of averages of partial sums produced so far, then it's clearly equal to 0.5. (and when "classical" sum exists, it will always be equal to "new" sum, so it's extention of the definition).
11:19:10  <Wolf01> It's like defining that 0+0+0+... = 0 and  1+1+1+1+... = 1 and 1+0+1+0+1+.. = 0.5
11:19:35  <crem> nope
11:20:16  <crem> 1+1+1+1 = -1/2 actually :)
11:20:36  <crem> so 1+0+1+0.
11:20:44  <Wolf01> 1+1+1+ are states not numbers
11:20:54  <Wolf01> on+off+on+off
11:21:10  <Wolf01> Sorry if I used numbers for practicity
11:21:41  <Wolf01> Poor perfornance warning converting int to boolean
11:21:44  <crem> 1-1+1-1+.. = 0.5.    <= that's on off on off.   And 1+0+0+0+0+0=1 is "on, then keep on, then keep on"
11:21:55  <crem> That's visual studio's thing.
11:22:15  <crem> Visual studio's warnings are often silly.
11:22:21  <Wolf01> 1+1+1+1+ means on and keep on, not changing state
11:22:32  <Wolf01> 1+0+1+0 means changing state
11:22:37  <V453000> ._.
11:22:48  <Wolf01> 1+0+0+0 mean turn on then off and keep off
11:24:12  <crem> No, you mean sequence (of partial sums), for example  1,0,1,0,1 <= that's on-off.  And that sequence of partial sums is produced of 1-1+1-1+1..
11:24:18  <crem> But, anyway.
11:24:55  <crem> I just shared a weird thing, not that I wanted to discuss it much. :)
11:28:31  *** TheMask96 has quit IRC
11:29:42  <Wolf01> I still can't get how turning on a light could be summed, you couldn't have 2x light by turning it on twice and you can't have 10x light by keeping it on for 10 seconds, but you can approximate it to be on and off for half of the time (which is where you had 5 seconds light, but no 0.5 light and neither 5x light)
11:30:38  <Wolf01> -1/12, 0.5 light etc are valid only in a specific context
11:30:51  <Wolf01> Which isn't the reality

17:46:58  *** andythenorth has quit IRC
17:47:12  <Wolf01> Cat was here?
17:47:30  <Wolf01> Totally a cat, I didn't even notice it :P
17:47:59  <frosch123> <- i also had a list
17:48:21  <Wolf01> But my list have a working patch
17:48:24  <Wolf01> *has
17:48:49  <frosch123> oh, i thought it was only a list of things to do :o
17:52:47  <frosch123> there are some occurences of "rail" in the comments, which should be "road"
17:52:59  <Wolf01> Yes, I know
17:53:20  <Wolf01> It has been hard to understand what the rail convert command did.. at 2am :P
17:54:27  <Wolf01> But I took it piece by piece and tried to learn what they did, then I rewritten most of it
17:54:46  <Wolf01> I copied the comments for reference
17:55:19  <frosch123> the levelcrossing check should be after the "HasType", so it does not error on tram-levelcrossing when converting road
17:56:00  <frosch123> if (!rtids.HasType(to_type.basetype)) return error; <- that should be a "continue", noe "return"
17:56:51  <Wolf01> Right, it's inside a loop
17:57:16  <frosch123> it leaks the iterator, but the function sshould also just ignore those tiles
17:57:33  *** welshdragon has joined #openttd
17:58:24  <frosch123> it also needs to check for present roadvehicles
17:58:34  <frosch123> and not convert to types where they are stuck on
17:58:37  <Wolf01> Yes, I left that part out
17:58:49  <Wolf01> It's on todo list
17:59:37  <Wolf01> I'm thinking to publish the local branch, it's a big patch
18:01:59  <frosch123> there are no yapf caches for road btw
18:04:11  <frosch123> i wonder whether rail conversion even works correctly :p
18:04:22  <frosch123> i think there are various cases where you can depower vehicles
18:06:14  *** glx has joined #openttd
18:06:14  *** ChanServ sets mode: +v glx
18:06:44  <Wolf01> Ok, now I understand why I put that check after (the hastype), because it asserts when is not road and the switch on tile type intercepts that
18:07:04  <frosch123> yes, we have that issue in multiple places
18:07:51  <frosch123> we need a version of HasTileRoadType that does not assert, but return false
18:07:58  <frosch123> like GetAnyRoadBits
18:08:24  <frosch123> we do not want that in all cases, since the assert is useful sometimes, but in many cases it is also the good behaviour
18:08:41  *** welshdragon has quit IRC
18:08:41  <Wolf01> Just check for tiletype and return false if !assert content
18:09:03  <frosch123> usuually we have different functions
18:09:10  <frosch123> like IsRoadStop and IsRoadStopTile
18:09:18  <Wolf01> Yes, I found them
18:09:21  <frosch123> the function without "Tile" asserts
18:09:26  <frosch123> we have those in many places
18:11:53  <Wolf01> But function names are starting to be weird... HasTileRoadTypeTile and even HasTileRoadTypeRoadTile
18:15:36  <Alberth> At least your name uses more words, unlike
18:17:31  <Wolf01> Only because TiletileileTileTile doesn't have a meaning
18:17:53  <Alberth> :)
18:19:38  <frosch123> Wolf01: GetAnyRoadTypes
18:19:49  <frosch123> HasAnyRoadTypes
18:20:00  <frosch123> consistent to GetAnyRoadBits

18:28:51  <frosch123> ho
18:30:10  <Wolf01> o/
18:31:03  <Wolf01> <frosch123> possibly also RoadTypeIdentifiers::FromTileIfValid <- isn't it a nonsense?
18:31:55  <Wolf01> If not valid return invalid :P
18:36:28  <Wolf01> Btw, if valid is the one with the assert or is the other one?
18:43:39  <frosch123> IFValid has no assert
18:43:46  <frosch123> that's the same as for the pool functions
18:43:58  <frosch123> and for UnpackIfValid
18:44:56  <frosch123> consistent naming :)
18:45:46  <DorpsGek> Commit by translators :: r27695 /trunk/src/lang (french.txt spanish.txt) (2016-12-14 19:45:37 +0100 )
18:45:48  <DorpsGek> -Update from Eints:
18:45:49  <DorpsGek> spanish: 4 changes by SilverSurferZzZ
18:45:50  <DorpsGek> french: 26 changes by glx
18:46:28  <Wolf01> It's not the name which bothers me, it's the meaning, because that "valid" suggests me about a valid RoadTypeIdentifier, but in this case it's the right TileType
18:47:18  <frosch123> all IfValid functions return some "invalid" value if the parameter is invalid. all non-IfValid functions assert
18:47:39  <Wolf01> Ok
18:48:00  <Wolf01> could it be like this?
18:48:41  <frosch123> i would make it a member, but yes
18:49:17  <frosch123> possibly the if part could also be some "MayTileTypeHaveRoad"
18:49:50  <frosch123> something like "MayHaveBridgeAbove"
18:50:09  <frosch123> then all the other functions can use that function to either assert, or return invalid
18:50:38  <frosch123> possibly "MayHaveRoad" is more consistent to "MayHaveBridgeAbove"
18:53:09  <Wolf01> Shouldn't we put these functions in some other header, like tile_map?
18:53:18  <Wolf01> The MayHaveBridgeAbove is in afterload
18:53:45  <frosch123> yeah, it was more prominent in the past
18:53:53  <frosch123> i think it got refactored away at some point
18:54:00  <frosch123> when all tiles got those bits
18:54:06  <Wolf01> It's still used only there, but I think it could be used for houses too
18:54:41  <Wolf01> I found a similar check when building houses on my other patch
18:54:42  <frosch123> if you check ottd 1.1. source or seomthing, then MayHaveBridgeAbove was in bridge_map.hpp
18:55:25  <frosch123> MayHaveBridgeAbove is a compatibility function from the past, it was hidden in afterload, so it is not used anymore :)
18:55:39  <Wolf01> :)
18:55:47  <frosch123> about the road stuff: for me it all belongs to GetAnyRoadBits
18:55:47  <Wolf01> Btw, got to go

19:55:29  <andythenorth> that’s ok, they can fork it :)
19:55:40  <frosch123> andythenorth: you kill people's option to use a different track grf
19:55:54  *** FLHerne has quit IRC
19:55:59  <frosch123> it's a brand trap
19:56:06  <frosch123> people may only use andy grfs
19:56:09  <supermop> egrvts would be a good candidate too if Zepheris (sp?) pops up again
19:56:11  *** FLHerne has joined #openttd
19:56:29  <supermop> at which point you should fork and support an andy only ottd
19:56:34  <andythenorth> I would put the roadtypes on a parameter
19:56:40  <andythenorth> it’s a valid use of parameter
19:56:49  <supermop> too complex for some users
19:57:05  <supermop> idk i generally prefer excess modularity
19:57:21  <supermop> im sure it's fine for a test grf
19:57:42  <supermop> but i dont know that it's best for the grf ecosystem long term
19:58:41  <supermop> also i want to be able to load a road grf with no trolley wire at all, even if that means some of my RH trams get disabled
19:59:02  <supermop> or a grf with no dirt roads, even if that disables my HEQs mining trucks
19:59:05  <andythenorth> I think that more likely, most players never load termite or equivalent road grf
19:59:18  <andythenorth> so the design of the sets is compromised in use
19:59:54  *** drac_boy has joined #openttd
20:00:01  <supermop> andythenorth: people try to play FIRS with original vehicles too
20:00:30  <drac_boy> I know this isn't exactly a good place to ask but any of you know if theres a particular term or not so much for these type of steam tenders that are part fixed and part articulated axles altogether?
20:01:02  <supermop> are you going to include trains, RVs, ships and aircraft, into FIRS by default, to be turned off by parameter?
20:02:00  <supermop> there is already precedent for newgrf features to fail silently due to lack of supporting grf
20:02:57  <supermop> arguably, RH with steam trams running under wires is failing safer than Firs with no wagon to carry scrap metal etc
20:03:15  <drac_boy> 'RH'?
20:03:20  <supermop> road hog
20:03:50  <andythenorth> supermop: nah, but people know about industries
20:04:01  <andythenorth> I could provide the FIRS industries and cargos separately
20:04:03  <drac_boy> oh ok
20:04:08  <andythenorth> but that would be…odd eh
20:04:15  <supermop> andythenorth: i still see lots of posts about lack of wagon to carry X
20:04:18  <drac_boy> either way this is what I meant re these type of tenders just in case anyone here does know
20:04:26  <andythenorth> agreed
20:04:50  <drac_boy> supermop one silly question, are these "carry X" cargos even defined by cargo class too? (not just cargo id alone)
20:04:55  <andythenorth> but FIRS doesn’t modify the available industries and cargos due to lack of cargos
20:05:07  <andythenorth> whereas Iron Horse removes trains due to lack of Termite
20:05:09  <supermop> andythenorth: what i am saying is, iron horse works fine (no metros) with no track grf
20:05:29  <andythenorth> drac_boy: that’s just a tender
20:05:40  <supermop> road hog, all vehicles will work with default roads and tramways
20:05:54  <andythenorth> nah
20:05:57  <supermop> steam tram still runs on powered tramway
20:06:01  <andythenorth> some vehicles will be dropped
20:06:10  <andythenorth> trams should be fine though
20:06:14  <drac_boy> supermop same for 2cc and I think some another north america grf of some sort .. although it then makes it difficult to set up a low-distance high-capacity rail setup due to no matching locos (as they were all under the 3rdrail-only class)
20:06:23  <supermop> drac_boy: i dont think original vehicles support cargo class
20:06:39  <drac_boy> at least last I recall 2cc had its own grf to provide only 3rd rail if you didn't want to use the newrail grf that added it
20:06:55  <andythenorth> drac_boy: it’s a centipede tender
20:07:03  <drac_boy> many people even still use the original vehicle? I had thought they all moved onto the opengrf thing by now
20:07:03  <andythenorth> no idea why I know that
20:07:08  <andythenorth> drac_boy:
20:07:12  <andythenorth> everything you wanted to know about tenders
20:07:32  <supermop> andythenorth: but there would still be a subset of trucks and buses that will run regardless of road grf
20:07:44  <drac_boy> andythenorth ohhh centipede hm that makes sense, why didn't I think of that word before .. thanks a lot anyhow :P
20:07:58  <Alberth> euhm, 56km/h for a steel wagon?
20:08:20  <supermop> drac_boy: lots of players, especially new players use original vehicles
20:08:37  <Alberth> me uses them too
20:08:41  <supermop> because they may not know that new vehicles are needed or even that they exist
20:08:43  <drac_boy> supermop does that not neglect the point of even providing the opengrf in first place?
20:08:47  <Alberth> nice and simple, not too much choice
20:08:56  <drac_boy> I mean opengrf can be bundled with ottd .. while the original grf can't be
20:09:16  <supermop> drac_boy: most people do not know that ogfx+ stuff exists
20:09:26  <drac_boy> supermop so how did they even know ottd existed?
20:09:50  <Alberth> even if you bundle it with openttd, they wouldn't find it
20:09:58  <supermop> i dont know, i found it years ago while searching online to figure out how to run TTO on XP
20:10:39  <drac_boy> supermop..well... clicking on ottd gives you opengfx right away so I dunno what your point seem to be
20:10:43  <Alberth> even if you ever manage to solve the problem of a good criterium for selecting which newgrfs to add
20:10:59  <supermop> patching the game to make original vehicles behave like ogfx+ vehicles is an option
20:11:10  <andythenorth> oops
20:11:16  <supermop> but that violates the spirit of the game's primary mission
20:11:16  <andythenorth> we’re having a ‘most people’ argument :)
20:11:19  <andythenorth> and I started it
20:11:21  <andythenorth> they never go well
20:11:26  <supermop> andythenorth: this is all your fault
20:11:27  <Alberth> :)
20:11:29  <drac_boy> andythenorth either way just asking as haven't tried the grf but what is Termite?
20:11:35  <andythenorth> exactly
20:11:37  <Alberth> tracks
20:11:46  <Alberth> and little animals too
20:11:53  <andythenorth> it’s the tracks that are needed to make Iron Horse work
20:12:13  <Alberth> does that speed up steel wagon?
20:12:20  <drac_boy> andythenorth oh ok..been a while since I last saw thread on that grf .. do you have a website for iron horse now or its still forum-only?
20:12:33  <supermop> drac_boy: even though many of us here often play with some or many new grfs, philosophically, there is a goal of the OpenTTD project to provide a faithful clone of the original TTD experience
20:12:48  <supermop> and that means including the original limitations where appropriate
20:13:34  <andythenorth>
20:13:36  <supermop> the new grf system allows each of us to chose to what degree we want an 'original' or 'improved' experience on a per-game basis
20:13:39  <drac_boy> supermop if its supposed to have original limit then why is there no option to have the original station cargo? or the vehicle limit? etc?? ;)
20:13:49  <andythenorth> drac_boy: the docs aren’t 100% finished ^^
20:14:03  <drac_boy> andythenorth ah nice, looking now to catch up ... brb :P
20:14:10  <andythenorth> ignoring arguments about ‘most players’, which we can’t substantiate
20:14:24  <andythenorth> the problems I have with making Yet Another GRF are:
20:14:24  <supermop> drac_boy: you can set limit of vehicles to some low number if you want
20:14:37  <andythenorth> - I have to get a devzone project, and setting up the repo never works
20:14:51  <andythenorth> - I have to remember a new name to type in devzone
20:14:58  <andythenorth> - I need another shell window and colour scheme for it
20:15:04  <supermop> andythenorth: pay off someone else to do it for you
20:15:21  <andythenorth> - I have to change the content for Yet Another GRF docs
20:15:38  <andythenorth> - I have to make another release thread (I can’t even find the Termite thread) :P
20:15:47  * andythenorth is just having a grumble
20:16:00  <andythenorth> it’s inertia eh though?
20:16:18  <andythenorth> another repo, another changelog, another python virtualenv, another compile and makefile to maintain
20:16:31  <andythenorth> another grfid, bananas entry, bug tracker
20:16:56  <supermop> andythenorth: go ahead and do a road hog roads grf now if you want - until nrt is in a x.y.z release it probably doesnt matter how proper it is
20:17:07  <andythenorth> just for the perception of player choice, and a default state where some / most vehicles are not visible in the grf :)
20:17:12  <andythenorth> let me finish my whining supermop :P
20:17:25  <andythenorth> I get the costs, but not many benefits eh?
20:17:33  <andythenorth> ok whining over
20:17:55  <supermop> heh
20:18:12  <andythenorth> foobar made Termite
20:18:19  <Alberth> you get an excuse for much play testing :p
20:21:11  <drac_boy> andythenorth hmm ironhorse does have some interesting locomotives across what I can see of two gauges with three different electric options
20:21:55  <supermop> road grf name: ANDY - Andy Not interested in Doing this Yet
20:22:01  <drac_boy> am I correct that Raven looks like the NER EF1 in uk?
20:22:08  <supermop> drac_boy: yep
20:22:17  <drac_boy> as I thought that body resembled the one pikka had
20:22:19  <drac_boy> heh figured
20:22:30  <supermop> iron horse is 'british-inspired'
20:22:42  <andythenorth> and Irish
20:22:55  <drac_boy> Little Bear .. that was a nice locomotive .. hobbled by the breech axe happening very shortly after production sadly :-s
20:23:18  <supermop> with future plans to have by parameter 'Andes Inspired' and 'SAR inspired'
20:23:25  <drac_boy> Cargo Sprinter looks like someone repainted the red Cargosprinter from germany tho? :->
20:23:37  <supermop> I use the Little Bear almost everywhere
20:23:45  <andythenorth> is it too boss?
20:24:02  <supermop> no, the other locomotives are too boss
20:24:09  <drac_boy> this anyhow
20:24:16  <supermop> so a train 4 tiles or less doesn't need them
20:24:31  <supermop> gridiron overkill for short freight
20:24:43  <drac_boy> just curious tho .. what is Double Juice supposed to be relatively modelled after?
20:25:02  <supermop> fictitious-ish
20:25:18  *** frosch123 has quit IRC
20:25:23  <andythenorth> drac_boy: yes cargo sprinter is a Windhoff
20:25:26  <supermop> a high speed bi-mode locomotive
20:26:01  <andythenorth> Double Juice is invented, but
20:26:11  <andythenorth> and similar Vossloh and other electro-diesels
20:26:21  <drac_boy> supermop heh ok..well tbh it may not be that fictitious if it was a 2015+ locomotive tho .. Today's Railway Europe magazine seem to keep talking about many new last-mile hybrid locomotives being contracted for or already in process of being certified
20:26:25  <andythenorth> ‘last mile’ diesel is in fashion
20:27:03  <drac_boy> in somes cases eg Alstorm has one model that is either 100% electric .. or with a slight lower total output as to make room for a single genset in oen end of the same body
20:28:18  *** smoke_fumus has joined #openttd
20:28:44  <drac_boy> andythenorth oh I almost forgot but did you know that Vossloh already sold off their railroad side of business somewhere last year? so no more vossloh-built locomotives for good
20:28:59  * drac_boy read a column about that in the europe magazine
20:29:25  <drac_boy> at least I think voith is still into the diesel transmission business tho
20:30:21  *** smoke_fumus has quit IRC
20:31:10  <drac_boy> andythenorth mind you I also know there were the electro-diesel locomotives on RhB but for some time now their diesel side had been used very little (probabably partially due to much more of the network being wired at this rate)
20:31:19  <drac_boy> and yep swizterland ^
20:32:27  *** Alberth has left #openttd
20:32:43  <drac_boy> heh heres an interesting photo...its under wire but still running on its diesel powerplant instead apparently :P
20:32:50  <drac_boy> anyway thats enough from me about this little topic for now tho ;)
20:36:34  <drac_boy> either way I hope you have fun with working more on Iron Horse if thats the case andy ;) (sorry about that I dunno if I'll ever play it tho? oh well!)
20:38:10  <supermop> drac_boy: iron horse is great for quick games on small maps
20:38:16  <supermop> not too complx
20:41:36  <supermop> i've played it on 64x64 maps a lot
20:42:18  <drac_boy> heh well last I checked I still only can have up to 3 railtypes so .. dunno which one would had to be left out .. to our own tho :)
20:43:57  *** LordRyan has joined #openttd
20:44:28  <drac_boy> but anyway not to cut this too short but I need to afk for a bit .. might be back later or if not after supper then instead (its 15:45 now)
20:44:33  <LordRyan> i'm playing openttd on arch but, after watching a playthrough, it's almost like half of the game settings are missing
20:44:39  *** drac_boy has left #openttd
20:45:22  <LordRyan> shouldn't there be at least two more submenus for vehicles?
20:49:45  <supermop> sub menus for what?
20:51:02  <LordRyan> supermop: this page here: -> <- shows two more submenus in `vehicles` as well as many other options, that I don't have.
20:52:23  <supermop> hmm thats from 1.3.1, so i guess those setting got moved
20:53:09  <supermop> i believe all of the 'max number of X vehicle' type setting got moved to the 'limitations' category
20:54:54  <supermop> the acceleration settings would be under 'physics'
20:54:58  <LordRyan> oh, looks like autorenew got moved to company
20:55:05  <LordRyan> i guess i should start using the search bar more :P
