10:17:03  <planetmaker> hey ho :) grf.farm sounds... excellent :)
10:25:47  <andythenorth> planetmaker I did wonder if we could somehow how keep bundles alive, I do like it
10:26:02  <andythenorth> but ultimately I could solve this by clicking on some buttons, so I did :P
10:26:13  <andythenorth> bundles was much appreciated
10:27:41  <planetmaker> andythenorth, yes, we can keep it alive. I have no plans to shut that down
10:29:03  <planetmaker> I simply currently miss time to maintain much of the services or do much else. However the server will remain available and bundles is not much more than a file dump with a http server attached anyway
10:30:17  <planetmaker> and if s/o or somewhat needs ssh there... I shall happily install a root key for you or another trusted person so that it can be reasonably used should I be temporarily not available
10:30:38  <planetmaker> (and there's always ^spike^ who has root on everything there, too

13:34:00  <andythenorth> LordAro yes that could be done
13:34:12  <andythenorth> that automation XKCD would apply, how often do I tag?
13:34:27  <andythenorth> bundles did it for 100+ projects, definitely worth it

15:54:50  *** Speeder has joined #openttd
16:01:03  *** Speeder__ has quit IRC
16:26:17  <arikover> What sort of engines?
16:33:49  <andythenorth> stuff like this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Rail_Class_31
16:34:08  <andythenorth> only of interest to people recreating British railways in OpenTTD
16:34:14  <andythenorth> minimal gameplay value
16:34:31  <andythenorth> overlaps existing engines, but with moderately worse stats in all areas
16:40:58  <FLHerne> andythenorth: Parameter?
16:41:16  <FLHerne> Or just another roster...
16:41:28  <andythenorth> I have a Joker parameter
16:41:38  <andythenorth> turns on the 08, snowplough etc
16:42:17  <andythenorth> they'd go in the bit of the tech tree that says "Lolz: Silly trains that don't have any gameplay purpose but look nice."
16:42:25  <FLHerne> andythenorth: I think adding more variety to the normal roster is probably better value-for-time?
16:42:43  <andythenorth> or I could do the European or US rosters :P
16:42:45  <FLHerne> Things like the three identical generations of Shoebox
16:43:25  <FLHerne> And the freight kettles still look somewhat unloved
16:44:05  <andythenorth> they're a bit non-descript
16:44:18  <FLHerne> Maybe a 60 instead of the 59, so they aren't identical at TTD scale?
16:45:04  <andythenorth> the 60 is the Vanguard, but it's a never-built class 38
16:45:08  <andythenorth> could be a 58
16:45:17  <andythenorth> that was one of the others I was considering
16:46:02  <andythenorth> it's all very realistic to have endless class 73, 37 and 59/66
16:46:08  <andythenorth> but a bit samey
16:46:13  <FLHerne> Yes
16:46:17  <FLHerne> 58 would be good
16:46:20  <andythenorth> if only we had daylength :P
16:46:22  <FLHerne> Distinctive
16:46:33  <andythenorth> I could do 20 year generations not 30
16:46:43  <andythenorth> anyway, daylength is solved in GS
16:46:48  <andythenorth> so I could redesign for that
16:49:26  <arikover> andythenorth: I find the Grub/Gronk quite useful for small shunting (factory to freight station)
16:49:40  <andythenorth> I use it for little novelty lines
16:52:58  <arikover> The Grub is also nice for early tram-like service (low density passenger), or as a low-cost metro.
16:53:40  * andythenorth looking up never-built british engines
16:54:22  <andythenorth> I did have a class 70, but I removed it, they're ugly https://github.com/andythenorth/iron-horse/blob/master/src/graphics/pony/chimera.png
16:54:37  <nielsm> so should we add a feature for "scripting properties" on newgrf items?
16:54:39  <andythenorth> and I wanted to use more sheds
16:54:44  <andythenorth> nielsm explain more? :)
16:55:10  <nielsm> let things add a list of arbitrary fourcc-named properties that scripts can query
16:55:41  <nielsm> to allow newgrf to better explain themselves to scripts how they're "supposed" to be used
16:56:09  <nielsm> like have a "GENR" property where engines with the same value are logically "same generation"
16:57:03  <andythenorth> that sounds dangerously close to the arbitrary props I wanted  for var 61 :)
16:57:04  <nielsm> or a FRTP and PASP set of properties that indicate how preferred they are supposed to be for freight and passengers
16:57:54  <andythenorth> unless it's hidden to newgrf, I would abuse it :)
16:58:00  <nielsm> or ALTG for "alternative groups", a generation/tech tree GS could allow a player to pick one of several alternatives to get
16:58:09  <andythenorth> 'equivalent to'
16:59:30  <nielsm> either way, just a generic way to let newgrf specify stuff that can be queried later, but otherwise has no effect in the base game
17:00:00  <andythenorth> you think the user bits might be a poor solution to that? :P
17:00:21  <nielsm> ?
17:00:43  <andythenorth> newgrf trains have a prop with arbitrary bits
17:00:49  <andythenorth> can be used in certain queries
17:00:53  <andythenorth> afaik, it's mostly useless
17:01:54  <andythenorth> prop 25 User-defined bit mask to set when checking veh. var. 42
17:01:57  <andythenorth> https://newgrf-specs.tt-wiki.net/wiki/Action0/Vehicles/Trains
17:02:10  <andythenorth> can obviously be used outside var 42, but is of very limited value
17:02:48  <andythenorth> there's a certain kind of person who can envisage how to combine bitmask values in a way that's actually productive there
17:02:53  <andythenorth> and then there's the rest of us
17:04:26  <andythenorth> anyway, has anyone tried the daylength GS yet?
17:04:53  <andythenorth> I did look at it, but it (a) confused me (b) is incompatible with any reloading of newgrfs
17:05:05  <andythenorth> and I only have time to play games to test newgrfs
17:05:39  *** Wolf01 has joined #openttd
17:05:49  <andythenorth> potentially it solves daylength, but it has had crickets response on forums
17:05:50  <andythenorth> https://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=87029
17:06:14  <andythenorth> shows the difference between 'what players say they care about' and 'what they actually care about'

17:12:36  <andythenorth> considered it
17:12:57  <andythenorth> I had to restrain myself, buying domains on AWS would be very easy :P
17:13:05  <arikover> andythenorth: daylength GS? Are we talking about the same daylength feature included in JGR Patchpack?
17:13:12  <andythenorth> no
17:13:19  <andythenorth> the daylength GS I linked in forums
17:15:29  <arikover> I fail to understand why you call it Daylength GS. It's called tech advance, right?
17:15:44  <nielsm> yes it changes the speed tech gets introduced at
17:15:51  <nielsm> relative to the speed things move around the map
17:16:19  <andythenorth> it's an implementation of daylength
17:16:27  <arikover> But it does not change production rate of industries, right?
17:16:33  <nielsm> of course not
17:16:41  *** Flygon has quit IRC
17:17:15  <nielsm> if you change the production per tick of industries you change the balance between elements of the economy
17:18:24  <andythenorth> afaict, there is a small cohort who want daylength because it reduces industry and town production
17:18:34  <andythenorth> but those people could write a newgrf already
17:18:49  <andythenorth> I suspect what they see as a feature, is to other people a bug
17:19:04  <nielsm> firs already allows you to change the base production rate of primaries, right?
17:19:12  <andythenorth> not in parameters
17:19:16  <andythenorth> but it could be done
17:19:25  <andythenorth> we talked about me adding a production scaling param
17:19:43  <andythenorth> afaict, there was also a small cohort who want daylength to make travel times realistic
17:19:43  <arikover> Well I tried daylength because you can basically service an industry with fewer vehicles.
17:19:47  <andythenorth> but those people are weird
17:20:08  <andythenorth> arikover good, so I didn't imagine that case :)
17:20:37  <nielsm> have anyone made a half scale train set? :)
17:20:53  <andythenorth> so lower production rates, or bigger vehicles would both solve your desire arikover ?
17:20:55  <nielsm> everything is half size, except capacities and power
17:21:05  <nielsm> so you can have twice as long trains in the same number of tiles
17:21:06  <andythenorth> chibi chibi
17:21:32  <andythenorth> quite tempting
17:21:42  <nielsm> you could probably even just take the original scale sprites and put into the 2x scale graphics instead
17:21:44  <arikover> andythenorth: Well I guess. I also like time passing slower.
17:22:01  <nielsm> the annoying part would be making new rail and station graphics :P
17:22:09  <andythenorth> nielsm there's a capacity parameter for Iron Horse :P
17:22:14  <andythenorth> achieves same result, but not visually
17:22:52  <nielsm> part of my thought was that you should be able to send longer trains around without the trains being 4x the size of the industries on the map
17:23:11  <andythenorth> it has appeal
17:24:22  *** gelignite has joined #openttd
17:24:52  <andythenorth> nielsm changing the Horse capacity parameter gives 4/8 vehicles with 30 tonnes capacity
17:24:59  <andythenorth> for 1960
17:25:06  <andythenorth> varies a bit by date
17:25:16  <andythenorth> 1.5* the default value
17:25:56  <arikover> andythenorth: I'm not a big fan of Daylength, mind you.
17:26:04  <andythenorth> hmm 1.33* the default, I checked the code
17:26:08  <nielsm> yeah you can do that, it just makes some rather chubby-looking trains :P
17:26:12  <andythenorth> arikover why not?
17:26:14  *** HerzogDeXtEr has joined #openttd
17:26:16  <dP> nielsm, do sets of people who want realism and who can do content even intersect?
17:26:43  <andythenorth> dP me and pikka?
17:27:08  <arikover> andythenorth: I like it, but I'm not a hardcore fan.
17:27:56  <andythenorth> any particular things about it?
17:28:01  <dP> andythenorth, you want realism? o_O
17:28:12  <andythenorth> I've been told I'm obsessed with it
17:28:54  <nielsm> it looks to me more like you focus on gameplay progression with a sprinkle of belivability
17:29:07  <andythenorth> mostly I focus on drawing trains I like
17:29:09  <nielsm> +e, somewhere
17:29:15  <andythenorth> everything else is post-hoc rationalisation
17:29:16  <andythenorth> ret-con
17:29:35  <andythenorth> some of the trains I like drawing are fake
17:29:37  <andythenorth> some are real
17:33:47  <supermop_Home> what i want is probably not 'daylength'
17:34:08  <supermop_Home> also i don't find new trains come to quickly
17:34:23  <andythenorth> I find that it takes 30 game years to replace all the old trains
17:34:28  <supermop_Home> maybe if i played on huge maps i would,
17:34:31  <andythenorth> then new ones appear
17:34:54  <nielsm> well you should do like with mobile phones, only buy every second gen
17:35:26  <supermop_Home> but on maps similar to original size, i have no problem, or i even find myself waiting for new trains
17:35:55  <supermop_Home> my problem is probably somewhat related to production, but not uiformly
17:36:42  <andythenorth> I find early game, the Horse trains are nerfed
17:36:47  <andythenorth> so I want new ones sooner
17:36:57  <andythenorth> but after 1930, progression is much too fast
17:37:36  <nielsm> more different early trains
17:37:46  <nielsm> early steam engine development was wild and experimental
17:37:53  <andythenorth> I played some original OTTD baseset recently, the train progression is borderline bizarre
17:38:06  <andythenorth> there's no concept of roles, only more or less useless engines
17:38:09  <andythenorth> then 'bigger'
17:38:09  <supermop_Home> it's more that i often reach headway capacity of a line
17:38:22  <andythenorth> +1
17:38:37  <andythenorth> I have ideas for that in NARS Horse
17:38:45  <andythenorth> but I never chose a route to go
17:38:59  <andythenorth> if we accept short trains (unrealistic for US, but eh)
17:39:05  <supermop_Home> and can't fit in a mix of local and express, or freight
17:39:06  <andythenorth> then capacity could increase severely
17:39:23  <andythenorth> 40t could become 80t
17:39:34  <andythenorth> I also considered requiring a new railtype for the heavier trains
17:39:43  <andythenorth> Railroad Tycoon did something along those lines
17:40:13  <nielsm> heavy rail and high speed rail be separate?
17:40:43  <nielsm> heavy rail is limited to 160 km/h while high speed can't carry heavy freight due to axle load
17:41:06  <supermop_Home> for industries, idk if i actually consistently find production too high or too low
17:41:39  <dP> btw, speaking of old trains, it would be awesome to have a sane way of upgrading the rail type
17:41:58  *** arikover has quit IRC
17:42:06  <dP> simplest solution would be an option to let old trains run on new rails, kinda like it is with elrail
17:42:08  <supermop_Home> sometimes its like, it only really makes sense to serve this once every 90 days, and that's sort of odd to plan around
17:42:11  *** arikover has joined #openttd
17:42:12  <andythenorth> supermop_Home are you specifically thinking of Steeltown?
17:42:18  <supermop_Home> yeah
17:42:22  <andythenorth> production ramps up horribly as new cargo flows come on stream
17:42:32  <supermop_Home> once everything is gung ho
17:42:35  <andythenorth> once you have 4 inputs the output grows fast
17:42:40  <andythenorth> and then down the chain
17:42:43  <supermop_Home> the production is huge
17:42:50  <supermop_Home> but its very deterministic
17:42:55  <andythenorth> but it tends to stabilise, unless you keep adding mines
17:43:10  <supermop_Home> and you are free to carry only like 60% if you want
17:43:27  <andythenorth> tempting as it is, I probably won't optimise vehicle progression for Steeltown
17:43:30  <andythenorth> it would be good though
17:43:57  <andythenorth> if I write a God Mode GS
17:44:03  <andythenorth> it could control both FIRS and the vehicles
17:44:06  <supermop_Home> in steel town i often find i really need ensp to make a raw material service make sense
17:44:18  <supermop_Home> but at gung ho its too much
17:44:23  <andythenorth> you can tone it down
17:44:26  <supermop_Home> so i have the gh level set lower
17:44:37  <andythenorth> 200% not 300% is more relaxing
17:45:24  <supermop_Home> i like steel town as it seems to work best for a modern urban economy
17:45:51  <supermop_Home> but quickly takes all capacity, so you need a duplicate passenger network
17:45:54  <andythenorth> yes
17:45:57  <andythenorth> realism!
17:46:29  <supermop_Home> personally idk if i am particularly interested in a north American horse
17:47:03  <supermop_Home> except perhaps as a 'what could have been' if they hadn't abandoned passenger service

18:58:21  <nielsm> what might be interesting also: lots of different engines made available, but production of them stops early if nobody builds them
19:00:27  <nielsm> but somthing like from 1850 to 1920 a new steam engine design comes every 5 to 10 years, some of them very specialized
19:00:44  <nielsm> and then things settle down into more clear roles and slower development
19:04:18  <nielsm> and some of those early designs get obsoleted fast so you may not use all of them, depending on when you're building new routes versus expanding existing

20:54:08  <CornsMcGowan[m]> oh man
20:54:17  <CornsMcGowan[m]> pathfinding for two or more simultaneous rails is tricky
20:54:49  <frosch123> is that the reason monorail was invented?
20:54:53  <CornsMcGowan[m]> how does choo choo do it with just the A* library?
20:54:58  <CornsMcGowan[m]> HAHA
20:55:41  <CornsMcGowan[m]> i implemented a tool similar to factorio's railplanner, only works for one track at the moment
20:57:13  <CornsMcGowan[m]> https://www.reddit.com/r/openttd/comments/bfsge4/im_back_with_an_update_to_my_railplanner_tool/
20:57:48  <CornsMcGowan[m]> i'm thinking about adding an option to build two simultaneous tracks but the problem becomes much more complicated
21:01:04  <nielsm> cheap approach: treat the map as 2x2 tile cells and pathfind between those
21:01:19  <nielsm> at least I think that can work
21:01:46  <frosch123> CornsMcGowan[m]: https://www.luisrios.eti.br/public/en_us/research/trains/ <- there is a scientific paper on that problem
21:01:51  <frosch123> though i did not read it
21:01:55  <CornsMcGowan[m]> oo
21:02:06  <CornsMcGowan[m]> http://idm-lab.org/publications.html i've been reading through this guy's papers
21:02:15  *** sla_ro|master has quit IRC
21:02:33  <CornsMcGowan[m]> he's been publishing a lot of multi-agent pathfinding papers, mostly for amazon robotic warehouse stuff it seems
21:02:43  <CornsMcGowan[m]> i'll read the trAIns paper ty :)
21:03:08  <frosch123> multi-agent stuff usually is about pathfinding with limited knowledge
21:04:27  <nielsm> superficially multi-agent sounds like pathfinding in an environment where agents need to get around independently on potentially intersecting routes, with limited or no cooperation
21:04:30  <CornsMcGowan[m]> oh? i thought the domain space would be 100% known (in at least the robot warehouse scenario)
21:05:39  <nielsm> yeah the issue is that if you want them to have 100% knowledge of every agent's paths you'd get lots of downtime with synchronisation and maybe pointless waiting, and instead it might be better to take a best guess even if it might conflict with someone else
21:08:02  <CornsMcGowan[m]> hm i see
21:08:09  <nielsm> another possible approach for parallel rail tracks: have higher cost for tiles that don't have similar sloped (or flat) land next by, so you for the most part find a route for one track that will have space for the second next by
21:08:39  <nielsm> then build the second track in segments along the first track, and if a segment can't build next by try to find a separate route for that segment
21:08:39  <CornsMcGowan[m]> oh this article seems to imply some central computer does the calc http://idm-lab.org/bib/abstracts/Koen17m.html and then assigns paths to each agent, rather than each agent running its own algorithm
21:08:44  <nielsm> and you might need some backtracking then
21:10:24  <supermop_Home> andythenorth small ore hoppers are cheaper per ton that medium or large
21:10:45  <supermop_Home> not complaining really as i like the look of the small ones
21:11:31  <CornsMcGowan[m]> that could work
21:11:33  <b_jonas> supermop_Home: don't they also weigh more or longer?
21:11:36  <CornsMcGowan[m]> sounds like a lot of backtracking though
21:11:45  <b_jonas> because those can metter when you put them on a train
21:11:50  <dP> just give the second track bonus for going along the first one
21:12:02  <nielsm> that's also a possibility
21:12:06  <andythenorth> supermop_Home sounds like a bug, the costs are just done with maths * unit length
21:12:29  <nielsm> and be careful what happens if the second track ends up on the wrong side of the first :P
21:12:49  <supermop_Home> the difference is on the order of -
21:13:26  <supermop_Home> enough you'd only notice if you were just checking to see if you'd be penalized for using the cuter small hoppers...
21:13:56  <andythenorth> it's about 4.4 / ton vs 4.5 / ton?
21:14:12  <andythenorth> just be rounding issues
21:14:24  <supermop_Home> for the 135 kmh generation,
21:14:35  <nielsm> anyway gn
21:14:44  <CornsMcGowan[m]> omg trAIns rolls their own priority queue implementation
21:14:47  <CornsMcGowan[m]> wild
21:14:48  <CornsMcGowan[m]> gn :)
21:14:49  <supermop_Home> based on small hopper you'd expect a long hopper to be 1944 quid
21:14:53  <CornsMcGowan[m]> ty for the tips
21:15:02  <supermop_Home> but its 1957

21:16:00  <supermop_Home> medium you'd expect to be 1458, but its 1464
21:18:16  <CornsMcGowan[m]> smol hopper can navigate tighter turns
21:18:23  <supermop_Home> haha
21:18:27  <CornsMcGowan[m]> or at least penalised less on tight turns
21:18:41  <CornsMcGowan[m]> given curve speed limit is determined by wagon count between turns
21:18:54  <supermop_Home> andy add high speed turn bonus to small ore hoppers?

22:12:52  <CornsMcGowan[m]> i remember somewhere mentioning the subunit counts for them being not quite 1:sqrt(2)
22:15:24  <dP> CornsMcGowan[m], 128 vs 196 iirc

22:19:32  *** nielsm has quit IRC
22:19:44  <dP> CornsMcGowan[m], just checked, in subunits it's 192 for diagonal piece and 256 for orthogonal
22:20:06  <CornsMcGowan[m]> o sweet
22:20:20  <CornsMcGowan[m]> i initially thought 192 orthogonal and 128 diagonal
22:22:35  <dP> CornsMcGowan[m], nah, that was from profit calculator, it uses different units
22:22:46  <CornsMcGowan[m]> ohh
22:23:10  <CornsMcGowan[m]> cm profit calc is a blessing
22:30:51  <b_jonas> this is strange, it's as if control-clicking the location button of a train window to follow the train on the main view doesn't work when I'm zoomed out to 50%. it shows the location of the train once but doesn't keep following.
22:33:58  <dP> CornsMcGowan[m], or mb it is 128 and 192, it's confusing as fuck in openttd code
22:34:13  <dP> CornsMcGowan[m], profit calc uses const tile_len = this.is_diagonal ? 128 : 192;

23:37:19  <dP> Eddi|zuHause, actually I was wrong, it returns logical track length
23:37:51  <dP> Eddi|zuHause, so it is distance but not advance
23:38:17  <dP> Eddi|zuHause, but yeah, with 1 tick time frame speed is distance and distance is speed %)
23:41:22  <Eddi|zuHause> dP: there's a field of physics where they just set the speed of light (and some other constants) to 1 and do away with all the units, then E=m and some other simplifications happen
23:47:04  <dP> I finally remembered why it was 128:192, because 1 diagonal piece is 8 subtile steps, so it's 256 * 8 : 192 * 16
