03:09:26  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> hi
03:11:18  <coopserver> <sim-al2> Company 6 is in dire straits...
03:11:31  <coopserver> *** JoeSchmoe has joined company #4
03:12:17  <coopserver> <Anson> pink already had one deadlock, but intead of fixing the problem everywhere, pink now has the same kind of problem again ...
03:13:16  <coopserver> <sim-al2> Kinda a pity that everything got built up only to bleed money like crazy
03:17:01  <coopserver> <sim-al2> Any reason for the two locomotive + four wagon trains? Acceleration is nice but aren't the running costs rather high?
03:30:27  <coopserver> <Anson> look at our profits ... does the cost for double engines matter ? .-)
03:30:44  <coopserver> <sim-al2> True
03:31:04  <coopserver> <Anson> there are two facts to decide :
03:31:04  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> i never understand why Happy has such small trains
03:31:23  <HAPPYNEWYEAR_MEECH> true fact
03:31:36  <coopserver> <Anson> how much cargo can be transported with 1 engine + 5 wagons, or with 2 engines + 4 wagons
03:31:44  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> 25% more
03:31:53  <coopserver> <Anson> and how is the acceleration with 1 or 2 engines
03:32:15  <HAPPYNEWYEAR_MEECH> perfect
03:33:01  <coopserver> <Anson> with 2 engines, power and TE are better, and with fewer wagons, weight is less and thus accelartion is better too
03:33:02  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> one slow 8, would give us more power and only drop 5km/h
03:34:19  <coopserver> <Anson> thanks for reminding me ... replacing medium 6 with medium 8 now ... much more power and TE and more speed too
04:02:40  <coopserver> <Anson> hallo, sim ... look at !! ACCEL TEST :-)
04:03:17  <coopserver> <sim-al2> ok
04:03:46  <coopserver> <Anson> four trains, each combination of full and empty trains, 1 and 2 engines
04:05:20  <coopserver> <Anson> first is empty 2 engines, last is full 1 engine, and thw other two are almost the same medium speed
04:06:19  <coopserver> <sim-al2> Single loaded lags behind, which is a big deal in a large network
04:06:21  <coopserver> <Anson> nice difference between 1 and 2 engines ...

04:07:20  <coopserver> *** Game unpaused (connecting clients)
04:07:52  <coopserver> <sim-al2> I see happy puts two locos on trains fairly early, but he seems to run longer trains early on and shortens them up later
04:08:21  <coopserver> <Cameron> easier to manage, but I dislike that
04:10:07  <coopserver> <Anson> i marked with X those tiles where the trains got max speed

04:10:30  <coopserver> <Woodbutcher> hi
04:10:40  <coopserver> <sim-al2> There was a coop game on in the archive that had long trains with a superstrong type locomotive that I liked
04:10:43  <coopserver> <sim-al2> hi
04:10:45  <coopserver> <Anson> 11 tiles (minus 3 for length) for the double engine, and 5 more for the single
04:11:12  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> when I do my own company, I don't mind the slow accel, because once I get them on the ML they rarely stop
04:11:12  <coopserver> <sim-al2> Big difference, I agree
04:11:38  <coopserver> <Anson> you have no hubs, no merges,  etc ?
04:12:10  <coopserver> *** Cameron has joined company #5
04:12:11  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> no I have them, but they are prioritized
04:12:23  <coopserver> <Anson> every hub and merge has a chance for collision and one train needs to stop and accelerate again
04:12:26  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> also longer trains = less of them
04:12:39  <coopserver> <Cameron> we missed the ship running cost again...
04:12:52  <coopserver> <Anson> even if the train on the ML doesn't stop (because of prios etc), the other train has to stop
04:13:25  <coopserver> <Anson> and when it takes 50% longer to accelerate from the sideline, the gap between trains on the ML needs to be a lot bigger for the sideline trains to merge
04:13:28  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> true, but it isn't on the ML yet
04:14:22  <coopserver> <Anson> when a train stops at a prio, it IS on the ML as soon as it starts accelerating
04:14:28  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> if we were running TL5 with one engine we would have less than half the trains
04:14:40  <coopserver> <Anson> and then it is very useful if it gets max speed as fast as possible
04:15:53  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> I've got an expirement lines up for the next reasonable map
04:16:17  <coopserver> <Anson> prios (and gaps between ML trains) need to be how long, when the merging train has 1 or 2 engines ?
04:17:28  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> half the trains = half the number of gaps
04:18:03  <coopserver> <Anson> much slower acceleration = need for triple gaps
04:19:12  <coopserver> <Anson> on the test we just watched, the double headed train was 5 tiles faster to get to max speed, and thus the prios can be much smaller
04:20:14  <coopserver> <Anson> and igf the network is not perfect, there will be more slowdowns, jams, whatever and the missing acceleration takes effect more often
04:20:27  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> i'm not arguing that it isn't faster and better accel. I'm arguing that you can move more cargo on the same network with longer trains, and can make more profit by having 1/4 the engines
04:20:51  <coopserver> <sim-al2> I did have that problem on the previous map where one sideline would have trouble getting trains on the mainline. I partially solved that by building a dedicated out line for one industry, but I think I would have built another lane on the mainline for the other industry
04:22:01  <coopserver> <Woodbutcher> Ahhh hot diggity dog diggity boom whatcha do to me...
04:22:06  <coopserver> <sim-al2> I think short trains makes it less stressful to get a good network going though, because you have a little more leeway in corners and hills
04:22:40  <coopserver> <Anson> acceleration is also needed
04:22:50  <coopserver> <Anson> at those tight corners
04:23:24  <coopserver> <Anson> and tight is relative ... on TL3, CL is never needed bigger than 3, but on TL5, TL7, or more .....
04:23:36  <coopserver> <sim-al2> I love the superstrong class
04:23:42  <coopserver> <Woodbutcher> night guys

04:23:54  <coopserver> *** Woodbutcher has left the game (Leaving)
04:24:20  <coopserver> <Anson> there is a parameter for weight of trains ... that usually is 1, but can be set to larger values to multiply the weight of trains
04:24:56  <coopserver> <Anson> i once did a game with slope steelness 5 and weight multiplier 5 ... wheat trains needed one engine per wagon to go faster than 10 kph
04:26:12  <coopserver> <Anson> might be interesting to see a map with hills, where people need to find the best combination of multiple engines, train length, etc
04:27:26  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> well so far so good on the fizzy drink route
04:30:45  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> Well next map I want to try something like TL7
04:31:01  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> With a gap of 5 or 6
04:31:43  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> but at merges drop that to 1,2,3 so that it gives trains some time to accelerate
04:31:43  <coopserver> <Anson> too bad that there is no easy option to do a more variable autoreplace, eg replacing EWWWWE with EWWWWW (Engines and Wagons)
04:31:54  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> yeah
04:32:23  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> you almost have to build two identical routes to see how it works
04:32:23  <coopserver> <Anson> gap 5 ? you mean the signal spacing ?
04:32:29  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> yup
04:32:40  <coopserver> <Anson> i think that should always be 2, independent of the train length
04:33:02  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> signal space it at 1,2 at the merge
04:33:22  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> well expected gap of 5-6...
04:33:38  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> huge benefit there would be no more double bridges/tunnels
04:34:43  <coopserver> <Anson> you still need double bridges for best speed
04:35:08  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> not if your gaps are 5-6
04:37:03  <coopserver> <Anson> but with that larger gap, you need a lot more space ...
04:37:20  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> more space in what way?
04:39:07  <coopserver> <Anson> build two tracks, one with spacing 2 and one with spacing 3 or 4 ...
04:39:42  <coopserver> <Anson> then fill the track with trains and start emptying them ... and watch how long it takes until the last train starts moving
04:40:01  <coopserver> <Anson> it takes quite some more time for gap 3+
04:40:47  <coopserver> <Anson> gap 1 would be better for straight tracks, but since you have gap 2 anyway at every split and merge, best spacing should be 2
04:41:14  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> I understand that.. let me think about an expirement for a moment
04:44:42  <coopserver> <Anson> experiment set up near the old test site, at sign !! ACCEL TEST
04:45:06  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> ok
04:45:11  <coopserver> <sim-al2> ok
04:47:11  <coopserver> <Anson> same test again with sopacing 4
04:47:58  <coopserver> <Anson> test should be done again on a larger loop, without tight curves
04:48:45  <coopserver> *** Cameron has left the game (Leaving)
04:49:44  <coopserver> <Anson> the problem with large spacing is that the first train in a queue needs to advance eg 4 tiles instead of only 2 until the next starts moving at all. that one needs to move 4 too, etc ... and all those delays add up a lot
04:50:47  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> yes, but my idea is to have the first spacing after a merge be 1 or 2, then grow the spacing to 5 or 6
04:51:21  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> that way trains can start moving faster, but the acceleration time leads to a 5-6 tile gap
04:51:41  <coopserver> <Anson> that will be very difficult ... trains which pass the merge at full speed need their usual spacing
04:52:03  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> they will maintain it from earlier spacing
04:53:18  <coopserver> <Anson> and if a train has some "medium" speed, it will be tii fast for the train in front of it which accelerates slower, and thus catch up and might even stop completely. thuis it would ned to accelerate again ...
04:53:37  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> that is the risk
04:54:04  <coopserver> <Anson> remember that on most networks, there are not only 2 different speeds and accelerations, but each type of cargo has a different weight, and thus different acceleration of trains
05:12:25  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> Anson
05:12:33  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> take a look at TL Test
05:15:57  <coopserver> *** Game paused (connecting clients)
05:16:02  <coopserver> *** Slicey has joined
05:16:03  <coopserver> *** Game unpaused (connecting clients)
05:16:34  <coopserver> <Anson> ok, i am watching now
05:16:49  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> ok, here we go
05:18:12  <coopserver> <Anson> in the curves, trains slow down to 132 kph ... CL 1.5 only
05:18:28  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> CL1.5 for TL7 as well
05:18:53  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> plus loading time would be much reduced for only 3 trains, vs 9 trains
05:19:30  <coopserver> <Anson> looks like 10 tiles gap between trains
05:19:37  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> and I
05:19:57  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> and I can fit additional trains on the TL7 network
05:20:06  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> where the TL network is full already
05:20:41  <coopserver> <Anson> loading time per train would be the same, but faster for the same number of wagons ... but don't forget that longer trains cause a bigger gap on the platforms and thus entry and exit takes longer too
05:22:17  <coopserver> *** Slicey has left the game (Leaving)
05:23:27  <coopserver> <Anson> what about the CL ?
05:23:34  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> TL7 running cost 3 engines, TL3 running cost 18 engines
05:23:55  <coopserver> <Anson> when you have a low CL that slows down both trains, they both will go only 132 kph
05:24:21  <coopserver> <Anson> but when you have short trains, you easily can extend CL1.5 to CL2.5 and go full speed
05:24:57  <coopserver> <Anson> with the longer trains, they would still be slowed down a lot, even with CL2.5, 3.5, 4.5, ...
05:25:14  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> yes with long trains you don't have to go full speed through corners, they don't run as fast to begin with
05:26:11  <coopserver> <Anson> true ... superstrong 5 is only 105 kph, a lot less than the max speed of CL1.5 (132kph)

05:27:02  <coopserver> <Anson> when a train goes twice as fast, you only need half as many trains ...
05:27:03  <coopserver> <JoeSchmoe> whats the max speed on the cl 2.5?

10:04:15  <coopserver> <Anson> do you have an idea how to split traffic at some point with TL3 going to one set of platforms, and TL12 to another ?

10:08:34  <coopserver> <Anson> yes, that would be one option ... but i would like to do it automatically

10:10:02  <coopserver> <Anson> currently, i have a solution, but to make it failsafe, i needed to increase signal gap at one point :-( ... second problem doesn't hurt (false detection of a few TL3 which are sent to long platforms)

11:45:15  <coopserver> <Yianni> but I wasnt't so lucky this time
11:45:21  <coopserver> <Anson> later you were online, but didn't change a lot, and thus the same problem (at a sifferent spot) happened again .... and you went bankrupt
11:46:34  <coopserver> <Yianni> Yeah, I need to improve my junction designs
11:47:27  <coopserver> <Anson> if you build junctions like you did, you have to leave enough space behind each crossing to take an entire train without blocking the crossing with the last few wagons
11:47:50  <coopserver> <Anson> that will make the network slower, but it can't deadlock
11:49:08  <coopserver> <Anson> look at the green company ... they have exactly the same problem ... signals in front of junctions and not enough space behind them. thus trains being stopped on the crossing and deadlocking
11:49:26  <coopserver> *** Player has left the game (Leaving)
11:49:37  <coopserver> <Yianni> I see.

11:50:56  *** skyem123 has joined #openttdcoop.stable
11:52:08  <coopserver> <Anson> first train blocks second ... no problem ... second blocks third ... still no problem ... sooner or later they all will move again when the first moves
11:52:45  <coopserver> <Anson> but when the first is blocked by another train, eg the third, then they all block each other and require manual intervention ... else deadlock forever
11:53:59  <coopserver> <Anson> there is also an "indirect" deadlock ... several trains block the entrance to a drop station, and thus they will not be able to pickup produced goods, and thus continue blocking the drop trains
11:55:02  <coopserver> <Anson> this kind of deadlock can be resolved by other people : an additional line to the factory will cause it to produce goods again and thus the blocking trains will be loaded and free the entrance to the drop
11:55:53  <coopserver> <Anson> btw : yellow has a deadlock too ... this map seems to be the deadlocking game :-)
11:56:03  <coopserver> <Yianni> Haha
11:57:25  <coopserver> <Yianni> It's difficult, you have to have a map of where everything's going, and how it's going to get there
12:00:56  <coopserver> <Anson> there are several methods how to organize the network
12:02:18  <coopserver> <Anson> the usual method on the public server and by miost coop players is to have a network with a backbone ... some mainline, some sidelines which are connected at hubs, and then connecting mines and similar to the sidelines
12:03:08  <coopserver> <Anson> with such a system, you don't have to know where trains will go ... simply connect a new mine to a sideline, and trains will find their path to a drop station automatically
12:04:32  <coopserver> <Anson> in those networks, there is (almost always) only one drop station for every type of cargo and a group for all those trains in the train list window
12:05:21  <coopserver> <Anson> if you want to connect a new mine, just copy one such train, replace the pickup order with the new pickup order, and clone a few more trains ... done :-)
12:05:21  <coopserver> <Yianni> Ok
12:07:36  <coopserver> <Anson> do you want to see an example of how to connect a new mine to the network ?

12:08:22  <coopserver> <Anson> we have a station Trinningpool Woods for cotton
12:08:48  <coopserver> <Yianni> Ahh, yes
12:08:52  <coopserver> <Yianni> I see it
12:08:58  <coopserver> <Anson> nearby is another cotton forest : Grennpool Cotton Candy Forest
12:09:05  <coopserver> *** Deucalion has left the game (Leaving)
12:09:34  <coopserver> <Yianni> uh huh
12:11:31  <coopserver> <Anson> station built
12:11:35  <coopserver> <Anson> now the trains
12:12:03  <coopserver> <Yianni> That's nice, no dodgy intersections
12:12:34  <coopserver> <Anson> done
12:12:59  <coopserver> <Yianni> What does the pronged piece of track here do?
12:13:12  <coopserver> <Anson> and i don't know where the cargo is going ... just copied from another cotton train
12:13:53  <coopserver> <Anson> watch what happend when the trains return ...
12:15:12  <coopserver> <Anson> if all platforms are used and all 2way signals are red, the train "evades" the red signals and goes to the reverser
12:15:39  <coopserver> <Anson> from there, it can only go to the depot, and then has to wait there until a signal turns green again

12:16:52  <coopserver> <Yianni> Oh ok, that makes sene
12:16:57  <coopserver> <Yianni> *sense
12:18:12  <coopserver> <Anson> some people don't like networks with overflow depots, and if you have built it nice, with an entrance rail that has enough space for 1 or 2 trains at least, you probably don't need one ... but i like them, taking care of unexpected events, avoiding queues and jams
12:18:50  <coopserver> *** Cameron has joined company #5
12:18:56  <coopserver> <Anson> on the wiki, there are several pages and also some blogs about stations and overflows
12:19:55  <coopserver> <Anson> some of them are rather old (5+ years) and thus not the "state of the art" ... but there are lots of useful hints
12:20:17  <coopserver> <Yianni> Ok,thanks for the tip(s) :D
12:21:38  <coopserver> <Cameron> 1.6 millin hp train
12:21:46  <coopserver> <Cameron> train 22
12:21:53  <coopserver> <Anson> look at the sign "SLH001" and "SLH002" ... those are SideLineHubs ... connecting a mainline with the sideline where i connected the new station
12:22:06  <coopserver> <Cameron> I'm bored, and tir...
12:22:47  <coopserver> <Anson> goal of those SLH is to have no level crossings, but only splits and merges
12:23:35  <coopserver> <Yianni> They all look impressive!
12:23:46  <coopserver> <Anson> so that the mainline has priority, trains on the ML won't ever stop (almost), and trains from the sideline will merge onto the ML when there is enough space for them
12:25:25  <coopserver> <Anson> BBH is the big brother of the SLH ... it connects mainlines with each other and thus is bigger and more complicated
12:27:49  <coopserver> <Anson> and at the end of one such mainline is a big drop station (and pickup for its produced goods) ... in our network, one such station is Sindbury Candy Resource West ... but it is really messy since it was not well planned, built at a location with not enough space for expansion
12:28:25  <coopserver> *** Cameron has left the game (Leaving)
12:29:22  <coopserver> <Yianni> But it still flows quite well?
12:29:44  <coopserver> <Anson> later it became even more messy when i started to replace TL3 trains with TL12 trains on the same network .... something which is rarely done and i wanted to test that on this map
12:30:02  <coopserver> <Yianni> They look cool though :P
12:30:17  <coopserver> <Yianni> and over 1 million profit! wow
12:30:22  <coopserver> <Anson> if you want to see really huge stations, go to the public server, or get some savegames from the archive at the wiki

12:31:01  <coopserver> *** Game unpaused (connecting clients)
12:31:04  <coopserver> <Muel> hi
12:31:21  <coopserver> <Yianni> Hello
12:32:42  <coopserver> <Anson> there are 127 trains which deliver their cargo at those two stations ... 92 of them at Sindbury West alone
12:33:28  <coopserver> <Yianni> Wow
12:33:34  <coopserver> <Anson> total number of trains around 300 ... and that is not possible with such level crossings where trains stop each other all the time
12:33:52  <coopserver> <Yianni> absolutely
12:34:43  <coopserver> <Anson> on the public server, there is only one company and all people work together ... those networks easily have 700-1000 or more trains, and the maximum which is hardcoded in ottd was also reached some time : 5000
12:35:28  <coopserver> <Yianni> Good god,
12:35:58  <coopserver> <Yianni> I imagine the entire map to just be track :P
12:36:00  <coopserver> *** Muel has left the game (Leaving)
12:36:24  <coopserver> <Anson> those maps often are bigger than this one
12:36:54  <coopserver> <Anson> but even on a map like this one, 1000 trains would be no problem when all people have a single company
12:37:55  <coopserver> <Anson> the biggest hub that i saw (and built part of it) was for a crossing of two mainlines, each with 7 lanes in each direction (4x7 incoming and 4x7 outgoing) :-)
12:38:23  <coopserver> <Yianni> phwoar,
12:38:57  <coopserver> <Yianni> much junction, very big, such amaze
12:38:59  <coopserver> <Yianni> :D
12:39:41  <coopserver> <Anson> the first 4 or 5 lanes were connected "all to all", allowing trains from any incoming laneto go to any outgoing lane ... later 2 more were added which only were "all to all" among themselves, and "all to some" with the others ... that hub was something like 128x128 tiles :-)
12:40:35  <coopserver> <Anson> but those games run for a lot longer time than the maps on this server, and many people work together on a single company
12:40:54  <coopserver> <Yianni> That makes sense
12:41:19  <coopserver> <Yianni> I imagine people get given sections to work on, and that becomes 'theirs'
12:43:09  <coopserver> <Anson> those games start by looking at the map, inventing some plan what to do, and then vioting for those plans
12:43:38  <coopserver> <Anson> that can take from a few hours to a few days until building starts
12:44:30  <coopserver> <Anson> during all that time, some money maker is running to have enough money for building the big net
12:44:49  <coopserver> <Yianni> That's a lot of coordination! and thanks for saving me :D
12:45:21  <coopserver> <Anson> then some people build mainlines first to have the skeleton of the network, followed by the drop stations .... and finally some sidelines that are used to collect the resources
12:47:11  <coopserver> <Anson> those maps are mostly for building huge networks ... money is not important when there is a big network, and terraforming usually is cheap too since people there are reasonable and won't flatten entire mountains or create continents from the sea
12:49:04  <coopserver> <Anson> i like to look at networks like you had before, with lots of small lines and lots of connections ... althogh such networks will easily break when you get more trains and more cargo later in the game
12:50:29  <coopserver> <Yianni> Indeed, as mind did
12:51:04  <coopserver> <Anson> but when you build like you did now, trains will slow down a lot at tight corners, thus taking more time and earning less, and most of all also blocking other trains behind them, causing jams when there are more trains ...
12:52:19  <coopserver> <Anson> avoid curves with CL0.5 ... CL = curve length = distance between two 45 degree turns which turn in the same direction ... trains will be slowed to only 88 kph
12:53:40  <coopserver> <Yianni> ahh, I see
12:53:55  <coopserver> <Anson> example : at sign !better curves" you have only an S-bend now which doesn't slow down trains at all
12:53:57  <coopserver> *** JJens has left the game (Leaving)
12:54:31  <coopserver> <Anson> since it is a 45 degree left and one right, it is no CL, but an S-bend

12:57:52  <coopserver> *** JJens has left the game (Leaving)
13:01:25  <coopserver> <Anson> on most networks, a signal spacing of 2 is used, no matter what the train length
13:02:16  <coopserver> <Yianni> Let's give that a try
13:02:52  <coopserver> <Anson> that allows for smaller gaps between trains, and 1 would be best, except that the largest gap on a track determines the density of trains, and that is 2 at least since every split or merge causes a gap of 2+
13:17:50  <coopserver> <Yianni> Thanks for your help! I need to go now, will be back soon!

13:29:18  <coopserver> <Firestar> hai
13:29:31  <coopserver> <Anson> hallo, fire
13:29:40  <coopserver> <Anson> how do you like the new trains ? .-)
13:30:03  <coopserver> <Firestar> pretty nice but i dont really care bout the new trains
13:30:15  <coopserver> <Anson> TL12 :-)
13:30:16  <coopserver> <Firestar> i care bout how the network ist doing its job ;)
13:32:01  <coopserver> <Anson> we had 60+ candy trains which couldn't keep up with production ... 3000+ candy piled up at the pickup, and only at 30% rating
13:32:48  <coopserver> <Anson> now with the new trains, the network is used even a little less, and less is piling up, while at 60% rating (double amoungt of candy transported)
13:33:37  <coopserver> <Anson> but it is difficult to have those long trains between other trains, and most of all where they split and merge at pickup and drop
13:34:11  <coopserver> <Firestar> at least its not causing traffic jams yet
13:34:22  <coopserver> <Firestar> so its not a problem till then
13:34:57  <coopserver> <Firestar> btw you could make some XXL trains for the fizzy drinks too to avoid bad ratings
13:35:44  <coopserver> <Anson> i have sent all the old candy trains to a depot ... let's test and exchange them for the long trains
13:36:37  <coopserver> <Anson> long trains go to the depot now and short come out of the depot
13:38:22  <coopserver> <Anson> maybe we should try that on the next map ... mainline with max TL only ... and instead of hubs to sidelines, using transfer stations which collect from TL3 and send TL12
13:41:10  <coopserver> <Anson> btw : i use 4 engines only for the TL12 ... that would be single engines for 4 trains of TL3 instead
13:42:14  <coopserver> <Anson> thus requiring 4 tinmes as many trains, and carry 4x140 = 560 only, instead of 700 on the long trains

13:42:52  <coopserver> <Firestar> hey anson try making some more of those TL12 trains for the candy just made some long stations for them
13:45:17  <coopserver> <Anson> check the stations ... you messed it up a bit
13:45:29  <coopserver> <Anson> some tiles of the long platforms belong to the EAST station
13:48:45  <coopserver> <Anson> why are you making short stations now ?
13:52:17  <coopserver> <Firestar> ye well when the next game starts  here lets try those XXL trains in our own company kay?
13:52:49  <coopserver> <Anson> don't know when that will be and how much time i will have
13:53:31  <coopserver> <Anson> why did you change the stations to short platforms again ?
13:56:33  <coopserver> <Firestar> did you write smth?
13:56:40  <coopserver> <Firestar> couldnt read it sry
13:57:00  <coopserver> <Anson> i just added a platform at the drop
13:57:07  <coopserver> <Firestar> kay
13:58:50  <coopserver> <Anson> the rating for candy pickup is between 20% and 30% now ... and 60 short trains ... that would correspond to 12 long trains for the same capacity, and the network looked less filled with 25 long trains than now with the 60 short
13:59:13  <coopserver> <Anson> and we would have to double their number to 120+ trains to have the same capacity
13:59:50  <coopserver> <Firestar> we could try to transform the candy pickup trains to tl12 and maybe save some of the ratings again
13:59:52  <coopserver> <Anson> look how jammed the network is now :-)
14:00:33  <coopserver> <Firestar> i know thats because i accidently crashed two trains
14:01:05  <coopserver> <Anson> but it was almost jammed anyway, with all those short trains
14:01:31  <coopserver> <Firestar> but with long trains it would be jammed and we would have had to make it LLLRRR
14:01:38  <coopserver> <Firestar> the ML i mean
14:01:48  *** skyem123_ has joined #openttdcoop.stable
14:01:50  <coopserver> <Anson> i have to take a short break ... biobreak for food and for the opposite too :-) ... will be back in maybe 15 minutes ... and then do the test with more long trains !?
14:02:14  <coopserver> <Firestar> ye we could try it
14:02:18  <coopserver> <Firestar> in the mean time
14:02:33  <coopserver> <Firestar> im gonna try and make the ML to LLLRRR
14:02:37  <coopserver> <Firestar> kay?
14:03:22  <coopserver> <Anson> 12 long trains correspond to the capacity of 60 short trains, but even with 25 long trains the network will be less filled ... i think :-)

18:43:31  <happy_> hi anson
18:45:52  <coopserver> <Anson> in case that someone from happy's company reads this : the sweet trains are short again to see how much load they do on the network ... currently 60 x TL3 = 60 x 140 bags = 8400 bags ... and the sweets line is almost full
18:52:34  <coopserver> <Anson> you can look at the delivered cargo graph, and at the station info for candy pickup : 2000-4000 bags waiting, and with station rating only 20-30% ...
18:55:41  *** happy_ has quit IRC
18:58:44  <coopserver> *** Vinnie has left the game (Leaving)
19:00:22  <coopserver> <Anson> since ottd has cargodist in trunk now for version 1.4+, the station shows "monthly supply and local rating: 1650 / poor (29%)"

19:47:58  <coopserver> <Anson> back from phone now
19:48:10  <coopserver> <Anson> this map is with inflation on
19:49:00  <coopserver> <Anson> i think it will rise until 2050 (end of original ttd games) ... you can also see the high max loan
19:49:24  <happy_> but that was not.on when the map  start
19:50:41  <coopserver> <Anson> it was ... but you only see it after the first 1 or 2 years, and even then won't notice it, except for a max loan of 2200000 instead of 2000000
19:51:16  <happy_> ar i see
19:52:25  <coopserver> <Anson> the two train sets are exchanged now ... the other was 60 TL3, transporting 60x140=8400 bags, and having 2000-4000 bags waiting at the pickup, with rating 20-30%
19:54:05  <coopserver> <Anson> now we have 30 TL12 trains, with 30x700=21000 capacity, and again waiting 2000-4000 bags, but now at more than double production of almost 70% ... and the station window shows monthly supply and rating at 3500 / 65% instead of 1500 / 25% ...
19:54:28  <coopserver> <Anson> but the tracks look more empty than before with twice as many short trains :-)
19:55:27  <coopserver> <Anson> you can also look at the delivered cargo graph and the profit graph to see the difference between the short and the big trains
19:55:51  <coopserver> <Firestar> i just made a new tl12 8 platform station for the fizzy drinks
19:56:26  <coopserver> <Firestar> and it could use some tl12 trains too
19:56:30  <happy_> nice
19:56:44  <coopserver> <Firestar> around 1.5k fizzy drinks waiting there
19:57:27  <coopserver> <Anson> btw : when i did the last autoreplace from medium 8 to medium 9, we giot some bad jams and even a deadlock :-(
19:58:02  <coopserver> <Firestar> well i gtg now cya tomorrow evening
19:58:18  <coopserver> <Anson> two stations were rebuilt and one new station, all without depots nearby, and thus trains started going acrosss the whole network, and then were stuck as lost trains
19:58:22  <coopserver> <Firestar> oh ye that long pickup is a seperate station the game wont allow m e to connec it
19:58:51  <coopserver> *** Firestar has left the game (Leaving)
19:58:54  <coopserver> <Anson> i used TL12 since station spread is 12
19:59:18  <Firestar> i  disconnected that staion network for now work out how it can be made useful kay?
19:59:19  <Firestar> cya
19:59:21  *** Firestar has quit IRC
20:00:20  <coopserver> <Anson> when we really want to switch from one to the other, a station can be deleted, and a new station nearby can be built while holding CTRL
20:00:48  <coopserver> *** Muel has left the game (Leaving)
20:01:04  <coopserver> <Anson> but you need to watch out for the local rating with the nearest town, so that you are not suddenly stuck without the old station and with the new station disallowed by local authorities

20:01:34  <happy_> true
20:02:31  <coopserver> <Anson> rating at Wintown (town next to the fizzy station) is now Appalling ...
20:03:11  <happy_> heem
20:03:22  <coopserver> *** k0rsh has left the game (Leaving)
20:03:51  <coopserver> <Anson> best to delete the unused new station so that it gives no bad points for an unserviced station, but put down some markers or normal rails so that no industry pops up on the flat area, and then wait a few years ...
20:04:55  <happy_> just doo trees at the town
20:05:58  <coopserver> <Anson> after massive TF, a few trees are not good enough
20:06:25  <coopserver> <Anson> they help, but not enough to be sure that a new station may be built
20:07:20  <coopserver> <Anson> i just removed the new station, which has to be removed anyway, and there are only normal rails now ... rating should soon improve
20:09:13  <happy_> remov all trees at the town but yer thats true
20:10:07  <coopserver> <Anson> hiow do you remove only trees and not accidentally remove houses, rails or something else too ?
20:10:26  <coopserver> <Anson> lots of work, and still no guarantee for good rating

20:14:18  <coopserver> <Anson> the TL12 trains accelerate very well for their length ... and i am using only quad engines ... that corresponds to a single engine for TL3 :-)

20:17:38  <coopserver> *** Game unpaused (connecting clients)
20:18:15  <coopserver> <Anson> very poor now ...
20:18:35  <coopserver> <Anson> deleting trees subtracts more points than new trees give back
20:19:06  <coopserver> <Anson> the trick is only that the points are capped at some negative value and you can delete more trees without lowering the rating more
20:19:49  <coopserver> <Anson> but when you are already at poor, deleting trees will first get you down to very poor or appalling and replanting won't help to go back to the old poor rating
20:20:18  <coopserver> <Anson> yes, now it is Good ... what did you do ?

20:37:30  <coopserver> <I.M.Legos> T L O?
20:37:57  <coopserver> <Anson> signal directly behind crossing leaves space for no trains = length 0 :-)
20:39:38  <coopserver> <I.M.Legos> To be honest i'm completly lost on this problem.
20:40:07  <coopserver> <I.M.Legos> you're hints stoped my trains >_>
20:40:26  <coopserver> <I.M.Legos> Signal AI is broked.
20:41:22  <coopserver> <Anson> you put a signal on one rail and no signal on the opposite rail --> the train made the signal red by itself
20:43:07  <coopserver> <Anson> you should try to have at least TL+1 tiles between crossings, so that you have enough space for a signal and an entire train ... you currently have 3 tiles most of the time, good enough only for a signal and TL2, while your trains are TL3

20:46:35  <coopserver> <Anson> they speak of good and bad waiting locations for trains ... with bad meaning that a train waits on a crossing ... just what you have on your network
20:47:00  <coopserver> <Anson> of course, the best solution would be to avoid that type of crossings completely
20:47:42  <coopserver> <Anson> and leaving and doing the same problems on next map won't help ... just as leaving and not trying to understand the problem doesn't help either

21:06:18  <happy_> hi mr
21:06:33  <coopserver> <Anson> and happy: we now have a new working pickup for fizzy, but the drop needs to be rebuilt too .....
21:07:11  <happy_> k i see whont i.can.doo
21:07:32  <coopserver> *** JJens has left the game (Leaving)
21:08:35  <coopserver> <Yianni> Anson, where are the signs that I'm looking for?
21:12:13  <coopserver> <Anson> look for the sign "best solution" and all the other signs near it
21:13:20  <coopserver> <Anson> btw : i just aded new long platforms to the station "Fizzy Drop" at Saningbury ... and that depot there also has the potential to cause deadlocks ...
21:15:06  <coopserver> <Anson> there is only 8 tiles space for trains that leave the station towards the depot, and the last wagons can block all platforms ... thus a train leaving the depot towards the station will stop and block the entry to the depot --> deadlock
21:15:27  <coopserver> <Yianni> Ahh yes I see
21:19:17  <coopserver> <Anson> to fix that problem, i made the track to the depot longer now, at least 12 tiles for the trains with TL12, and will count the tiles now, so that i can put a signal right at that tile where the last wagon will be when a train stops
21:19:50  <coopserver> <Anson> that will cause trains in the platforms to stop on the platforms and not advance and block the rails in front of the station
21:21:10  <coopserver> <Anson> moved a signal by half a tile so that it is now at the end of a waiting train
21:22:14  <coopserver> <Yianni> All makes sense now! :P
21:22:23  <coopserver> <Anson> but there is a second part to it too : trains should not start exiting the depot if they can't leave it completely ... and that is more difficult since there are two different waiting positions on the main track, depending whether another train is already waiting there or not
21:31:13  <coopserver> <Anson> hehe, now we have an indirect  deadlock
21:32:15  <coopserver> <Anson> i released lots of stopped trains and thus they queue at the fizzy pickup station, blocking the trains that shall drop resources and produce drinks, and thus the drink trains are also stopped forever
21:35:09  <coopserver> <Anson> primitive solution : building a visible simple iverflow depot which takes those additional trains ... at sign "temp: simple overflow"

21:44:00  <coopserver> <Anson> i trusted that the new station for long fizzy trains would be good ... but it is too distant from the factory ... needed to cut it down to only 5x5 tiles, to get a dummy tile near enough to the factory to load anything at all
21:45:43  <coopserver> <Anson> we ned to move the factory, and then probably part of the pickup and/or drop station too ... or (since we probably can't easily move the factory), the long pickup station need to be moved again, back to where the old one was, with longer platforms and new access tracks ...

21:48:50  <coopserver> <Jam35> that means hi

21:49:51  <happy_> hi jam
21:49:59  <coopserver> <Jam35> HI
21:50:08  <coopserver> <Jam35> GOOD
21:50:41  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> Can coop if you want, haven't really played this game. I always join too late :P
21:51:20  <coopserver> <Jam35> hmm....
21:51:27  <coopserver> <Jam35> thinking...
21:54:24  <coopserver> <Jam35> PM the pass and if I think of something will do in a minute :)
21:54:35  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> Lol cool
21:54:44  <coopserver> <Jam35> or do you have a plan?
21:54:52  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> Nope
21:55:01  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> I just want to play a PAX game, been so long
21:55:55  <coopserver> <Jam35> so what's with the sweeties? :)
21:56:26  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> I didn't mean this game, this game is just me building for no reason :P
21:56:35  <coopserver> <Jam35> ah right
21:57:00  <coopserver> <Jam35> a pax game is a nice idea for new map
21:57:17  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> Yup
21:59:52  <coopserver> <Anson> just chatted on IRC
22:01:03  <coopserver> <Yianni> Could you assist with this junction of mine?
22:01:34  <coopserver> <Anson> which one ?
22:02:00  <coopserver> <Yianni> Grendinghll Plastic
22:02:15  <coopserver> <Yianni> I say junction, I meant station
22:02:44  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> You need splits on the platforms lines
22:02:50  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> To stop trains getting lost
22:03:08  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> /trying to enter occupied platforms
22:03:20  <coopserver> <Anson> how such an overflow works :
22:03:55  <coopserver> *** Jam35 has started a new company #10
22:03:57  <coopserver> <Anson> on this server, a setting is changed and thus 2way signals might behave differently than in offline games
22:04:10  <coopserver> <Jam35> shorten the platforms by one tile
22:04:15  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> See: what jam just did
22:04:17  <coopserver> <Jam35> and place those tracks there
22:04:20  <coopserver> <Anson> that setting is to consider red 2way signals to be a dead end, or end of line
22:04:57  <coopserver> <Anson> when the pathfinder hits on such a signal, it ignores that path and selects another one
22:05:04  *** ODM has quit IRC
22:05:28  <coopserver> <Anson> and when a train can't go to the first or second platform because of this, it will go to the next, which is the reverser
22:05:49  <coopserver> <Anson> then, from the reverser, it has only one choice . to go to the depot
22:06:53  <coopserver> <Anson> and then it will stay in the depot, since depots have implicit signals that match the signals outside : since there are exit signals, the depot has an entry signal inside and trains wait until one platform is free gaain and the 2way signal is green
22:07:25  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> The problem is the lack of splits, it stops things from working is certain orientations...
22:10:10  <coopserver> <Jam35> boom
22:10:29  <coopserver> *** Jam35 has joined spectators
22:11:53  <coopserver> <Anson> yianni, still there ? .-)
22:12:43  <coopserver> <Yianni> Hi sorry, I'm back
22:13:04  <coopserver> *** Jam35 has started a new company #10
22:14:34  <coopserver> <Anson> should be done now
22:14:44  <coopserver> <Yianni> ok, lets test
22:15:39  <coopserver> <Yianni> Hey hey!
22:15:52  <coopserver> <Anson> one last detail ....
22:16:17  <coopserver> <Anson> if trains get lost, they go to random direction and most often don't go into a platform
22:16:35  <coopserver> <Anson> thus they only leave the depot, go to the reverser, and back in the depot
22:17:01  <coopserver> <Anson> to solve that problem, add an emergency exit for lost trains :-)
22:17:50  <coopserver> <Yianni> Which would allow the train to continue?
22:18:28  <coopserver> <Anson> now lost trains will first wait in the depot, but when a platform is empty and signal is green, they can leave the whole station directly towards their destination
22:18:50  <coopserver> <Yianni> Ok, sounds good :D
22:19:30  <coopserver> <Anson> that "fork" at the end of the reverser is a trick for the pathfinder
22:20:02  <coopserver> <Anson> without it, the pathfinder would consider it to be a dead end and send no trains there, just like with the red 2way signals
22:20:32  <coopserver> <Anson> and with three impossible tracks, it would select a random, probably a random platform
22:20:44  <coopserver> <Anson> and then be stuck there, causing a deadlock
22:21:26  <coopserver> <Yianni> Makes sense
22:21:29  <coopserver> <Anson> but when a track has a split (the fork), it is no longer a dead end for the pathfinder and trains go there instead of the red 2way signals
22:22:23  <coopserver> <Anson> some people like jam also do such forks in front or behind stations, but that is not needed 99.9% of the time
22:22:57  *** happy_ has quit IRC
22:23:37  <coopserver> <Yianni> Ok, which would prevent the liklihood of deadlock - even more!
22:23:41  <coopserver> <Anson> about the length of the reverser : to make it as fast as possible, make it as short as possible ... 4 tiles for TL4
22:23:45  <coopserver> <Jam35> as MrD2DG said certain orientations/configurations will break
22:23:56  <coopserver> <Jam35> failsafe is to build them
22:24:11  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> Better to be safe than sorry tbh
22:24:26  <coopserver> <Jam35> that exact station will break 25% of the time
22:24:48  <coopserver> <Anson> there can be a problem in 0.1% of the reversers : depending on orientation and whether they go straight or diagonal, a train could select the short branch of the fork and then only have 3.5 instead of 4 tiles length in the reverser
22:25:05  <coopserver> <Anson> in those few cases, you need to build it one tile longer
22:27:02  <coopserver> <Anson> on another map, i had such a problem and found that it broke in one of 4 possible directions, and only when the reverser was on one side and not the other ... thus it would be breaking in 1 out of 8 cases ... and on this map, all stations are working for me
22:28:18  <coopserver> <Anson> and i didn't need those small forks at a station at all in any game (at least until now :-)
22:28:47  <coopserver> <Jam35> hardly any of the overflows are even in use
22:28:57  <coopserver> <Jam35> you haven't tested them all
22:29:01  <coopserver> *** Jam35 has joined spectators
22:29:49  <coopserver> <Anson> that strange behavior is NOT random ... it happens for specific rare combinations of direction etc, and then it happens always ... thus test it once and when it works, it will keep working
22:30:41  <coopserver> <Jam35> in any case I already put extra track on the majority yesterday
22:30:52  <coopserver> <Jam35> because one broke
22:31:22  <coopserver> *** Jam35 has joined company #4
22:31:33  <coopserver> <Anson> if you take a little time, it is not too bad anyway to watch a train go all along a new track (or check it now and then) to see whether there is a signal in the wrong direction or some other problem ... and when the train comes back to the station, you will see whether the reverser works :-)
22:32:34  <coopserver> <Anson> when i did an autoreplace last morning, three of our stations were bad and sent trains to random depots, causing massive jams and even a deadlock
22:32:49  <coopserver> <Yianni> Wow
22:33:01  <coopserver> <Anson> cause was missing depots at two of them, and bad/missing orders to go to depots
22:33:19  <coopserver> *** Game paused (connecting clients)
22:33:22  <coopserver> *** Player has joined
22:33:22  <coopserver> *** Game unpaused (connecting clients)
22:34:41  <coopserver> <Anson> with a depot right behind the terminus stations, or an overflow depot like i like to build, AND with the order to maintain (right after loading), they will never go to any random visible depots, but only to that specific nearest depot
22:35:45  <coopserver> <Anson> when the depot is missing or the order is missing, they get lost and/or go to any other visible depot and then can cause problems
22:35:46  <coopserver> *** Jam35 has joined spectators
22:37:28  <coopserver> <Anson> reason : on this server, breakdowns are always off, and thus automatic servicing is also off by sefault ... EXCEPT when you do an autoreplace ... THEN it will be activated and trains go to any visible depots nearby
22:37:53  <coopserver> <Player> why would you want to them to go to a depot anyway? ah, there you go ^^
22:38:11  <coopserver> <Anson> but that also has an exception : when the train orders include any order to go to a depot, trains will only follow that order and never go to a depot automatically
22:38:38  <coopserver> *** Taede has left the game (Leaving)
22:39:50  <coopserver> <Player> nice little deadlock there at the.. what's that, eastern corner?
22:40:05  <coopserver> <Anson> by adding such a service order (english maintenance, british service :-) you can decide when and to which depot to go
22:41:31  <coopserver> <Anson> player : where ? which company ?
22:42:09  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> Yellow, evidently
22:42:24  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> Also player you should probably change your name to something not 'player'
22:42:48  <coopserver> <Player> you're right, sorry about that

22:43:47  <coopserver> <Jam35> ^
22:43:51  <coopserver> <Anson> by sending trains to a nearest depot right after loading, i distribute all the slowdowns by trains that enter a depot and leave it again, to all the different stations, and trains rarely queue for autoreplacing ... most of the time, you can't see it on the graphs, just in contrast to having no such service orders and all trains jamming at few depots for half a year or longer, or even causing deadlocks
22:43:53  <coopserver> <Josta> i forgot all that stuff ^^

22:48:50  <coopserver> <Josta> guess he gave up ^^
22:49:08  <coopserver> <Josta> is there a way to make the chat history reappear?

22:49:33  <coopserver> <Jam35> top left
22:49:40  <coopserver> <Josta> got it
22:49:53  <coopserver> <Anson> looks as if he tried to copy my overflow depiots, but didn't understand anything how it is supposed to work, and thus got a deadlock when the station got a bit busier
22:50:20  <coopserver> <Josta> appears so
22:51:17  <coopserver> <Anson> Yianni, did you see what yellow did badly at !deadlock ?
22:52:00  <coopserver> <Yianni> Yup
22:52:05  <coopserver> <Anson> even with the reverser properly connected, it might not work since the 2way signals work a bit differently than most people (including me) first thought ....
22:53:31  <coopserver> <Anson> the pathfinder does NOT see four red 2waya signals at once (at the pbs signal) and then send the train to the reverser, but it sees the nearest 2way, then the next, then the next ... and thus probably will go to the most distant 2way signal and be stuck there, instead of going to the reverser on the near side
22:54:55  <coopserver> <Anson> thus the reverser probably would be better on the left side of the station, and not that bunch of diagonals either ... that was also a suggestion by me, but only for a terminus station without overflow and reverser
22:56:03  <coopserver> <Jam35> what PBS?
22:56:13  <coopserver> *** Josta has left the game (Leaving)

22:58:53  <coopserver> <Yianni> Yes, sure
22:59:19  <coopserver> <Anson> oh, sorry, i meant the signal on the incoming track
23:00:02  <coopserver> <Anson> when it was a simple terminus with a pbs, i did the suggestion with that diagonal grid ... and then he rebuilt it with a bad reverser

23:29:08  <coopserver> *** MrD2DG has joined company #8
23:30:44  <coopserver> <Anson> i had such problems some time ago ... first a connection loss and 5 minutes later complete shutdown of all my internet (which includes phone, internet and TV too) ... they did nightly maintenance (or service, for you british people) for 4 hours each nigght, for three days(nights) ...
23:31:16  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> My internet seems to be fine otherwise though, I can still browse etc
23:31:44  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> The only problem seems to be my connection with the coop server
23:32:11  <coopserver> <Anson> maybe different timeout settings in ottd and the browser
23:32:31  <coopserver> <Yianni> mmm possibly
23:32:42  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> That's true but my brother is also playing GTA online with no problems
23:32:50  <happy_> mite be
23:32:56  <coopserver> <MrD2DG> Anyway it seems to be fine now
