Times are UTC Toggle Colours
00:00:06  <TrueBrain> the softest line possible
00:00:24  <Nickman> you know what
00:00:35  <Nickman> on the slopes it goes wrong, because it doesn't follow the steps...
00:00:46  <Nickman> I think that's what's making it ugly...
00:00:52  <TrueBrain> look only to the flat tiles
00:01:02  <TrueBrain> the rest ... needs a bit of work to make pretty :p
00:01:14  <Nickman> ;)
00:05:01  <Nickman> heroes FINAL EPISODE!!!!
00:06:17  *** CIA-3 [~CIA@] has joined #openttd
00:06:59  <TrueBrain> enjoy :)
00:07:06  <Nickman> :D
00:09:08  <Nickman> I will
00:09:39  <Eddi|zuHause2> so, you're now too lazy to post links :p
00:10:51  <Eddi|zuHause2> the lines look better now :)
00:15:13  <TrueBrain> grrr, light is very tricky...

00:17:30  <TrueBrain>
00:17:50  <Nickman> seems to bright?
00:18:03  <TrueBrain> yeah, it is, but besides that?
00:18:41  <Nickman> looks good, the line is more realistic and not so hard on the eye
00:19:02  <TrueBrain> depth is good visible
00:19:33  <TrueBrain> it sucks that light comes from the east :p
00:19:43  <Nickman> yeah, only the slopes..., the tiles don't seem to be horizontal :s
00:20:26  <TrueBrain> on the west side they do
00:20:29  <TrueBrain> on the east side a bit less
00:21:47  <Sacro> TrueBrain: done a truck cab :D
00:22:06  <TrueBrain> :) :)
00:22:58  <Sacro> now to do the trailer
00:41:12  <CIA-3> OpenTTD: richk * r10987 /branches/NewGRF_ports/docs/NewGRFAirports.doc: [NewGRF_ports] -Change: Updated spec to describe use of keydepot_pos in multi-tile depot definitions.
00:42:42  <CIA-3> OpenTTD: richk * r10988 /branches/NewGRF_ports/src/newgrf.cpp: [NewGRF_ports] -Feature: 0xFF in a block list indicates SetAll. This is best used in the release block, where it effectively releases all currently held blocks.

00:45:02  <Nickman> omg, what a stupid ending of Heroes?
00:45:54  <Bjarni> so what?
00:46:02  <Bjarni> do I look like I care? :p
00:46:22  <Bjarni> but you just made sure that I will not start to watch it X)
00:46:41  <Bjarni> well, I wouldn't anyway. Somebody compared it to Lost
00:46:42  <TrueBrain> why is it stupid? :)
00:47:23  <Nickman> It's nothing the ending :p
00:47:28  <Nickman> it just isn't an ending
00:47:33  <TrueBrain>
00:47:33  <Nickman> it's just another episode :p
00:47:42  <Bjarni> I think basically because there are no more episodes. It's the same with all series... you get sad that it's all over
00:48:13  <TrueBrain> it look like crap!
00:48:17  <Nickman> There will be new ones in september ;)
00:48:20  <TrueBrain> but maybe it is just getting used to...
00:48:31  <Nickman> It looks pretty good, but a bit boring with only green on screen... :p
00:48:40  <TrueBrain> that might be the problem indeed :)
00:48:41  <Nickman> show us in a pretty landscape ;)
00:48:49  <Nickman> with some trees, maybe a house
00:49:01  <Bjarni> some vehicles
00:49:07  <Bjarni> some roads
00:49:10  <Bjarni> all in lego
00:49:20  <Bjarni> and have it done by tomorrow morning :p
00:49:36  <Nickman> gogo
00:49:37  <Bjarni> I think we will go for all green for a while
00:49:45  <TrueBrain> Bjarni: you would be supprised how easy it becomes from here
00:50:01  <Bjarni> maybe
00:50:09  <TrueBrain>
00:50:11  <Eddi|zuHause2> hm, the steps from the front left could be a tiny bit lighter
00:50:12  <Bjarni> and since it's lego, it can't be boring
00:50:15  <TrueBrain> I still think the nops don't have enough accent
00:50:39  <Nickman> nope, need to be a bit darker
00:50:56  <TrueBrain> the east and south-east slopes need a fixup
00:50:57  <Eddi|zuHause2> yeah, i think they stuck out a little more in your first attempts
00:51:06  <TrueBrain> as light-fall goes wrong because it misses tiles :p
00:51:36  <TrueBrain> but okay, light work I can leave to _Ben_ :p Mwhahahhaa :)
00:51:45  <_Ben_> erm
00:51:47  <TrueBrain> I have a few more tiles to model
00:52:04  <SmatZ> good night
00:52:09  <TrueBrain> night SmatZ :)
00:52:28  <TrueBrain> _Ben_: I was joking ;) But I am pretty stuck with lights
00:52:31  <_Ben_> the light setup is aracrions..where the hell is he?
00:52:35  <TrueBrain> I can't find a nice way to highlight ALL things I want...
00:53:06  <TrueBrain> but okay, I will now first finish the missing tiles :)
00:53:07  <_Ben_> The last render you just showed looks nice by the way
00:53:27  <_Ben_> I'm just making some more bricks!...I'm getting addicted to this
00:54:12  <TrueBrain> :) How nice!
00:54:19  <TrueBrain> your bricks look much better btw :)
00:54:27  <TrueBrain> and the dimensions are slightly more right :p
00:54:31  <TrueBrain> but that is dumb luck I guess
00:54:34  <_Ben_> thanks!
00:54:46  <TrueBrain> the lastest pics I showed here are with your bricks :p Hehe :)
00:55:03  <TrueBrain> I am going to try to change the import from ldr to use your bricks, instead of the ones from ldraw :)
00:55:11  <_Ben_> its scary, I've began to release how ever bit of every lego bit has been thourght about so much.  There is such consistence in the measurements, so I worked out a few, and I've just referenced the rest from them
00:55:35  <TrueBrain> the design is pretty simple, still it is so creative :)
00:55:37  <TrueBrain> I love lego
00:56:10  <TrueBrain> I am starting to understand Blender :)
00:56:11  <TrueBrain> hehe
00:56:23  <_Ben_> I notice that for every slot that another brick can go in there is a little additional small hole above.  I wonder if that is to allow a slight space to compress air as the bits fit so tightly
00:56:29  <Nickman> you're doing great ;)
00:57:21  <TrueBrain> _Ben_: possible; what Inoticed is that the hollowing is exactly a smaller version of the rest
00:57:33  <TrueBrain> maybe it just has to do with production process
00:58:22  <Nickman> yeah, to use less plastic?
00:58:27  <_Ben_> I've spotted some new ways of sticking some bricks together tonight, which I only released when I released the mearurments were exactly the same so tried it out
00:59:34  <TrueBrain> like?
00:59:38  <TrueBrain> at the bottom of a plate? :)
00:59:45  <TrueBrain> in every hole of technic lego? :)
00:59:48  <_Ben_> half tick, I released you would say that so I'm uploading an image
00:59:49  <TrueBrain> they are _all_ the same dimensions
01:00:07  <TrueBrain> realised _Ben_, not released ;)
01:00:18  *** SmatZ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:00:53  <_Ben_> oops, one of many
01:01:49  * Sacro is almost done with his lorry
01:01:52  <_Ben_> heres the few bits I've done tonight >
01:02:24  <_Ben_> the red veichical bumper can attach the shorter fatter poles to each end, wich I've never done before
01:02:27  <Nickman> are you going to model every signle brick there is? :D
01:02:34  <_Ben_> maybe..!
01:02:40  <Sacro> Nickman: there are an AWFUL lot of bricks
01:02:51  <Nickman> I know :D
01:03:17  <Nickman> The ccombinations in lego are endless ;)
01:03:21  <Sacro> i have about 4600 files in my parts draw
01:03:21  <Nickman> but now, I'm going to bed
01:03:29  <TrueBrain> night Nickman :)
01:03:32  <_Ben_> I hope that about 10% are used 99% of the time, so I can make those, and start putting together some models
01:03:33  <TrueBrain> _Ben_: very impressive :)
01:03:35  <Nickman> after spending my intire night on Heroes...
01:03:38  <Nickman> I need some sleep :D
01:03:57  <TrueBrain> you truely do amazing job :)
01:04:00  <Nickman> goodnight all ;)
01:04:08  <Nickman> yeah Ben, the parts rock!
01:04:13  <_Ben_> thankyou!
01:05:12  <Bjarni>  <Nickman> The ccombinations in lego are endless ;) <--- not true. Endless is a pretty big amount. We have a finitive number of combos, but it's a damn high number
01:05:25  <TrueBrain> @kick Bjarni mierenneuker
01:05:28  <Nickman> indeed...
01:05:31  <Nickman> haha :D
01:05:32  <Sacro> Bjarni: actually, a turing machine could have an infinate amount
01:05:34  <Bjarni> more than I care to count ;)
01:05:37  <Nickman> good one TrueBrain ;)
01:05:41  *** Netsplit <-> quits: Born_Acorn, @DorpsGek
01:05:46  <_Ben_> I wonder if you can pay to get custom parts made...
01:05:46  <TrueBrain> doh!
01:06:05  *** Netsplit over, joins: Born_Acorn
01:06:05  <Bjarni> _Ben_: you can.... but you don't like the price
01:06:07  <TrueBrain> _Ben_: sure you can :) For money you can buy anything :)
01:06:21  <Nickman> who knows what it would cost ;)
01:06:34  <Bjarni> making a new form is pretty pricy
01:06:34  <Nickman> well, now I'm really off ;)
01:06:34  <Nickman> cya
01:06:41  <_Ben_> Then there is really infinate combos
01:06:57  <Bjarni>  <Nickman> who knows what it would cost ;) <-- buying a brand new Mercedes would likely be cheaper
01:07:08  <Nickman> hehe :D
01:07:29  <Nickman> well, why don't you just make yourself a mold amd make the bricks yourself ;)

01:08:11  <TrueBrain> doh, I made my tiles wrong :) haha :)
01:08:13  <Nickman> night
01:08:15  <TrueBrain> foutje bedankt baas
01:08:29  *** Nickman [] has quit [Quit: ( :: NoNameScript 4.02 :: )]
01:08:50  <TrueBrain> first time I fucked up my first attempt :) Hehe
01:10:16  <_Ben_> Are the trains/vans/planes/ships going to be scaled differnetly for the lego set do you think? At only 4 tiles per square it would be hard to get detail due to a low amount of lego bits
01:11:05  <TrueBrain> forgot that Z=0 isn't ground-level :)
01:11:23  <TrueBrain> _Ben_: the idea was to use 8 tiles per square for buildings
01:11:26  <TrueBrain> 16 for trains
01:11:28  <TrueBrain> and 24 for aircrafts
01:11:41  <TrueBrain> but I guess it will be: anything that looks good enough :p
01:13:09  <_Ben_> cool...interesting.  So single ground tiles will be a set of rendered tiles? or will they be single tiles, and everything else just large?
01:13:28  <TrueBrain> how do you mean, sorry?
01:14:01  <Sacro> so
01:14:09  <Sacro> does anyone want an articulated lego rv?
01:14:17  <TrueBrain> show us Sacro :)
01:14:44  <Sacro> i need a page
01:15:19  <TrueBrain> why you tell us?
01:15:37  <_Ben_> TrueBrain: Will Ottd handle each grass tile as 1 tile, or would many be stiched together to make some tiles?  I'm just wondering, becuase if a grass tile is 1 OTTD tile, then a train which is 16 would have problems as any long train currently has
01:15:40  <TrueBrain> most of the time it is more useful to ask the person in charge :)
01:16:06  <TrueBrain> _Ben_: 4x4 lego-blocks are 1 OTTD tile
01:16:17  <TrueBrain> see my latest image, the darker lines indicate the OTTD tiles
01:17:10  <TrueBrain> I wonder if we can make Blender understand our color remapping stuff :)
01:17:39  <_Ben_> confusing termonology.  Are the bumps on lego bricks called bumps?!
01:18:15  <TrueBrain> dunno
01:18:19  <TrueBrain> let's call them bumps
01:18:23  <TrueBrain> then we all understand eachother :)
01:18:27  <Sacro> right
01:18:49  <Sacro>
01:18:53  <Sacro>
01:18:59  <TrueBrain> Sacro: can you render a resulting image? :)
01:19:00  <_Ben_> "studs" wikipedia has it as
01:19:07  <TrueBrain> studs, also fine  :)
01:19:09  <Sacro> TrueBrain: errr
01:19:15  <Sacro> probably not :P
01:22:21  <TrueBrain> _Ben_: anyway, dunno if you ment this, but: ground-tiles use 'duplo', where 4 studs make 1 tile. Buildings will use normal lego, where 8 studs make 1 tile
01:22:34  <TrueBrain> I just really hope it is enough detail
01:22:50  <Sacro> my studs don't show :(
01:23:19  <TrueBrain> Sacro: they didn't here either
01:24:11  <_Ben_> ah right, it's duplo. Ok that makes sence
01:24:27  <Sacro> TrueBrain: my importer has the ability to save rendertime by smoothing them out
01:24:36  <Sacro> unfortunatly, the switch for telling it not to, doesn't work
01:25:16  <_Ben_> Sacro: cool little jeep
01:25:16  <TrueBrain> haha :) Nice!!
01:25:30  <TrueBrain> I will look into the importer tomorrow Sacro
01:25:45  <TrueBrain> k, I believe I have just 2 tiles left to create the model for
01:26:04  <Sacro> _Ben_: zomg, what jeep?
01:26:13  <Sacro> :\
01:26:21  <Sacro> its a truck cab and trailer
01:26:50  <_Ben_> ah right, I'm just rendering, I'll check when it comes around again, I didn't realise they wen't together
01:27:48  <Sacro> yep
01:29:54  <TrueBrain> hmm, how to do those 2 tiles...
01:29:56  <TrueBrain> good question...
01:29:59  <Sacro>
01:30:50  *** Eddi|zuHause3 [] has joined #openttd
01:32:06  <TrueBrain> hmm, you have hills and ....
01:32:11  <TrueBrain> what is the name for that?
01:32:17  <TrueBrain> hills going downwards ;)
01:32:24  <_Ben_> downhills!
01:34:39  <Sacro> TrueBrain: slopes?
01:34:39  <TrueBrain> there are 2 tiles in OTTD where it goes up on both sides, left and right
01:34:39  <TrueBrain> I need a clear name for them :p
01:34:39  <TrueBrain> too late for me to think :)
01:34:39  <Sacro> <- nice
01:34:39  <TrueBrain> haha, someone with too much time :)
01:34:39  <TrueBrain> very nice idea for street-road
01:34:39  <TrueBrain> flatten them
01:34:39  <_Ben_> That video is pretty sweet.  If I modelled all the bricks and assembled them I could get them to collaps like that in the havok reactor max has
01:35:47  <TrueBrain> very sweet :)
01:36:05  <Smoovious> ridge-tile
01:36:14  <TrueBrain> tnx Smoovious
01:36:20  <Smoovious> yw
01:37:19  *** Eddi|zuHause2 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:37:23  <_Ben_> I call them the valley tiles sometimes
01:37:48  <Smoovious> valley tile would have a valley in them
01:37:52  <_Ben_> a ridge would be convex, the TT tiles are concave
01:38:31  <Sacro> hmm
01:38:48  <Sacro> i wonder if ldraw -> povray -> blender would give better models
01:38:57  <TrueBrain> valley! YEAH! That was the word :)
01:39:15  <Smoovious> he is right tho... I thought those  tiles were center-raised, not center-loweredd
01:39:23  <TrueBrain> Sacro: I couldn't find a povray -> blender , only blender -> povray
01:40:44  <Sacro> mmm, yeah
01:40:49  <Sacro> povanim is the wrong way
01:42:26  <TrueBrain> and that is sprite 18 and 19...
01:43:17  <TrueBrain> let's see....
01:43:35  <Sacro> ooh
01:43:38  <Sacro> another importer
01:44:05  <Sacro> and it comes with a .tex readme
01:44:12  <Sacro> i wonder if TrueBrain himself did it
01:44:24  <TrueBrain> wow, perfect job, amazing :)
01:44:37  <TrueBrain> did what?
01:46:07  <Sacro> TrueBrain: an ldraw blender plugin with instructions in .tex format :)
01:46:11  <Sacro> i know your fondness for it
01:46:21  <TrueBrain> haha, I am fast, but not that fast :p
01:46:53  <TrueBrain> (didn't know about Blender until, what, 3 days ago? :p)
01:47:34  <Sacro> hehe
01:47:36  <Sacro> impressive learning
01:48:06  <TrueBrain> <- extract in your bin/ (where openttd is)
01:48:17  <TrueBrain> and run openttd with '-b 32bpp-simple'
01:48:25  <TrueBrain> start toyland ;)
01:52:33  <TrueBrain>
01:52:57  <TrueBrain> lol, tt-forums doens't allow .blend files :p
01:56:22  <Sacro> oooh
01:56:25  <Sacro> now this is better
01:56:37  <TrueBrain>
01:56:47  <TrueBrain> including the .blend file
01:57:14  <Sacro> except its huge
01:57:49  <TrueBrain> what is?
01:58:11  <TrueBrain> the .blend is, as almost all .blends seem to be, 364 kiB :p
01:58:23  <TrueBrain> I am happy with the result :)
01:58:35  <TrueBrain> creating the other images is now relative easy, as it is just changing material ;)
01:59:17  <TrueBrain> k, bed time
01:59:24  <TrueBrain> tnx all for the feedback :)
01:59:25  <Sacro> TrueBrain: i found some other importers
01:59:29  <Sacro> getting better renders
01:59:38  <TrueBrain> Sacro: let me know when you have a nice result :)

10:09:13  <Nickman> Gonna try it in a sec ;)
10:10:04  <Nickman> with the 32-bpp blitter, my game gets choppy even when no png files for 32bpp are loaded...
10:10:36  <Nickman> there is a bug ;)
10:11:44  <TrueBrain> Nickman: 32bpp-anim or 32bpp-simple
10:11:48  <Nickman> simple
10:12:00  <TrueBrain> what kind of hardware?
10:12:14  <TrueBrain> Windows?
10:12:24  <TrueBrain> how does it preform against 8bpp-simple?
10:12:40  <Nickman> when there are no vehicles an stuff, everything goos as smooth as possible, but on the startscreen for example with the in game animations on the background, it get choppy
10:12:55  <Nickman> core 2 duo E6600
10:12:57  <Nickman> windows
10:13:07  <TrueBrain> What is the screen depth? Dual monitor?
10:13:12  <TrueBrain> What kind of video-card?
10:13:15  <Nickman> havn't tried 8bbp-simple
10:13:24  <Nickman> geforce 8800 GTS 320 MB
10:13:33  <Nickman> 1920x1200 (I think :D)
10:13:40  <TrueBrain> fullscreen?
10:13:58  <Nickman> nope
10:14:15  <TrueBrain> can you compile with sdl support and try -v sdl
10:14:15  <TrueBrain> ?
10:14:25  <TrueBrain> as I really don't see how it can be slow on such a machine
10:14:29  <TrueBrain> here it runs normally
10:14:34  <TrueBrain> (linux)
10:14:40  <Nickman> well, the smaller the screen the more fluent it goes :)
10:14:50  <TrueBrain> which resolution is non-fluent?
10:14:58  <Nickman> I can only compile in Visual studio
10:15:08  <Nickman> can you set a certain resolution?
10:15:12  <Nickman> I just drag it so... :p
10:15:20  <TrueBrain> yeah, about which resolution is slow?
10:15:57  <TrueBrain> dual monitor, 2048xsomething, still as fast as 8bpp....
10:16:08  <Nickman> screen is nog at 959 width and 837 height and it get choppy when alot of things are moving on the startscreen
10:16:17  <Nickman> :s
10:16:48  <TrueBrain> weird...
10:17:00  <Nickman> indeed...
10:17:02  <TrueBrain> it has to be noted that 32bpp-simple is absolutely not optimized in any way
10:17:04  <TrueBrain> so it is slow
10:17:08  <Nickman> :)
10:17:09  <TrueBrain> but it should be as slow as 8bpp-simple
10:17:22  <Nickman> I'll try the 8 bpp
10:17:23  <TrueBrain> with the only differense that it is just a bit more slow, because of the 32bpp alpha stuff :p
10:17:37  <TrueBrain> but I have a simple AMD 3000+ here
10:17:39  <TrueBrain> and I don't notice it :p
10:17:45  <Nickman> :s
10:17:45  <Nickman> :p
10:18:03  <TrueBrain> in FastForward it is slower, I blieve 30% or something
10:18:04  <Nickman> with the 8bpp, no problem what so ever
10:18:18  <TrueBrain> hmmm, we need to trace this :)
10:18:19  <TrueBrain> some day ;)
10:18:41  <Nickman> ;)
10:18:49  <TrueBrain> try 32bpp-anum
10:18:51  <TrueBrain> try 32bpp-anim
10:18:57  <TrueBrain> but disable Full Animation in-game
10:19:28  <TrueBrain> should be much slower :p
10:19:29  <TrueBrain> hehe
10:19:49  <Nickman> 32bpp-simple is very slow where 8bpp-simple runs very smooth so... :s
10:20:02  <Nickman> this is weard...
10:22:15  <Nickman> here is a little bug in your bricks :
10:22:23  <Nickman> there is a hight difference I believe
10:22:48  <Nickman> and the slopes differ to little from the level tiles :s
10:23:26  <TrueBrain> you do know ctrl+s makes a screenshot, right?
10:23:37  <TrueBrain> and that is no bug
10:23:39  <Nickman> so? :D
10:23:43  <Nickman> no?
10:23:47  <TrueBrain> the tiles go downwards a bit later
10:23:59  <Nickman> oh...
10:24:01  <TrueBrain> but I understand it looks confusing
10:24:08  <TrueBrain> I will see if I can move the tile downwards sooner
10:24:16  <Nickman> :)
10:24:21  <TrueBrain> but that looks ugly at the bottom
10:24:24  <TrueBrain> so I doubt that
10:24:32  <Nickman> :D
10:24:47  <TrueBrain> but I can always try :)
10:24:48  <TrueBrain> hehe
10:24:49  <TrueBrain> but for now, bbl

17:19:51  <svip> :|
17:19:55  <svip> How do you stop a python script?
17:20:00  <svip> I mean.
17:20:04  <svip> Jump out of the script.
17:20:29  <svip> Well... stop the entire execution.
17:22:06  <Wolf01> press the x
17:22:13  <svip> :|
17:22:18  <svip> What the hell?
17:22:27  <svip> I am writing the script.
17:22:33  <svip> And I have a case where I want execution to stop.
17:22:37  <Wolf01> maybe there is an "exit" or "break"
17:22:48  <svip> break is out of a loop.
17:22:55  <svip> Everyone knows that.
17:22:59  <svip> It's not exit, quit or stop.
17:24:00  <Wolf01> Python has no statement to exit execution of a program or module before "running off the end". You could use sys.exit(), but this requires an initial import sys.
17:24:49  <svip> Good thing I need sys for something else.
17:24:53  <svip> ! So it's already imported. :D
17:26:07  <Wolf01> return x-y, x+y <- wtf?
17:26:44  <SpComb> sys.exit raises a SystemExit exception
17:27:10  <SpComb> ideally, you'd just return from your main function and then drop off the end of the module
17:27:13  *** |Jeroen| [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
17:27:34  <SpComb> the usual def main (...) : .... if __name__ == '__main__' : main() pattern

17:33:59  <svip> I don't see the exception though.
17:34:04  <svip> Or is it caught somewhere?
17:35:19  <SpComb> it's an internal python thing
17:35:26  <svip> Hm.
17:36:14  <svip> Will Python run main() by itself?
17:36:25  <SpComb> no, see the if stuff above
17:36:50  <svip> if __name__ == '__main__' : main() << Sorry I'm not quite sure I follow.
17:37:05  <svip> Where is this?
17:37:12  <svip> Inside main() or after it?
17:37:34  <SpComb> after
17:38:09  <SpComb>
17:38:29  <SpComb> although I think the getopt stuff goes outside the main function
17:39:00  <svip> Well...
17:39:10  <svip> sys.exit() in mine does happen upon an IOError.
17:39:21  <svip> I just wanted to write my own personal insult to the user.

18:53:22  <skidd13> I looked at it too much ;)
18:53:30  <Maedhros> hehe
18:54:03  <Maedhros> for what it's worth the switch (dir % 4) { } could be turned into dir & 3 with a table lookup
18:54:20  <Maedhros> although the compiler might do that for you anyway

20:11:49  <Sionide> makes sense i guess
20:11:57  <Sionide> i hadn't heard it before either
20:12:03  <Bjarni> I have a spread shirt I once got for free with an order in an online shop (since the order was big enough). When it arrived, it turned out to be a walking billboard commercial for that shop

20:27:27  <XeryusTC> would be funny when you see people play a game you're dev of, and you tell them :D
20:27:38  <Bjarni> that would almost be like wearing a railroad uniform at a station
20:27:48  <XeryusTC> rofl
20:28:00  <XeryusTC> you might just be a fan though ;)
20:28:00  <Bjarni> people ask the weirdest questions if you wear a uniform
20:28:35  <XeryusTC> i dont think people start randomly asking linux questions when you wear a "may the force be with you" shirt with tux' head on it
20:28:43  <XeryusTC> force = source :S
20:29:46  <Bjarni> I was once asked "what should the train to X say?".... not "which track will it depart from?" or "when will it depart?", but what should the text say
20:29:57  <skidd13> XeryusTC: Once I carryed a mainboard with me. And a guy asked me what gfx card I can suggest to him.
20:30:13  <Bjarni> surprisingly it would say X, which would be the end of the line and the station that person wanted to go to
20:30:40  <XeryusTC> hmm
20:30:51  <XeryusTC> you wear an uniform when you're at the railroad station? :o
20:31:13  <Bjarni> I replied with what it should say, which track it should depart from and that the train in question is the two red dots in the distance

20:32:25  <Bjarni> well, either I have a uniform on, or those orange outfits... the uniform is more pretty
20:32:40  <Bjarni> but less visible in the dark or on a foggy day
20:32:45  <XeryusTC> hmm
20:33:01  <XeryusTC> engineers here wear one of those yellow high visibilty jackets
20:33:11  <XeryusTC> or some uniform i think
20:34:14  <Bjarni> 100 years ago, it was mandatory to wear the black uniform at all times. Imagine walking around on the tracks in black cloth during the night
20:34:37  <Bjarni> moving trains had no chance to see them in time >_<
20:34:38  <nairan> quite dangerous.
20:34:56  <Sionide> can't you wear uniform and hi-vis jacket?
20:35:25  <XeryusTC> Bjarni: moving trains usually dont have enough time to stop
20:35:28  <Sionide> Bjarni, you drive trains for a living?
20:35:33  <XeryusTC> although, stations do have speed limits
20:35:36  <Bjarni>  <Sionide> can't you wear uniform and hi-vis jacket? <-- sure. I do that here:
20:35:41  <nairan> that would lok stupid. neon orange vest and uniform.
20:35:51  <Sionide> nairan, it doesn't

20:36:43  <nairan> those are workers. at least the one in front (lightblue pants)
20:36:44  <Sionide> Bjarni, oh cool
20:36:45  <XeryusTC> our (as in, the dutch) engineers have a high vis jacket thats more like a normal jacket

20:45:19  <Bjarni> ahh
20:45:20  <skidd13> Not that bad IMO. It has more or less political reasons.
20:45:47  <Bjarni> the railroad net in Europe has a whole lot of problems due to political reasons
20:46:04  <Bjarni> at least they finally figured out to have a standard gauge
20:46:38  <Bjarni> and cab design
20:46:39  <Bjarni> next will be the signal system and ATC (those two are closely related)
20:46:39  <skidd13> but the french network has a very good rep.
20:47:06  <Bjarni> eventually catenary systems will be standardised as well and trains will be able to move around freely
20:47:47  <Bjarni> it looks like 25 kV 50 Hz will be the new standard, but I have a feeling that Germany is against that decision :p
20:48:43  <Bjarni> avg speed of freight cars in Europe is 16 km/h because they are moved from one yard to another, then they wait 20 hours before they are moved to the next and so on
20:48:45  *** Grey [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:49:23  <Bjarni> but when they are moving, they have to be moved at relatively high speed (like 100 km/h or more), which is damn high for freight compared to the rest of the world
20:49:52  *** jonty-comp [] has quit [Quit: I've run out of terminals!]
20:50:07  <Bjarni> there are sideeffects of moving freight that fast, like needed engine power, power bill, wear, demand of rolling stock, demanded gearing of engines and so on

20:57:52  <nairan> the thought is great but the influence of industy is greater,
20:58:22  <Bjarni> our signal system is really old (safe, but old and causes delays due to wear), so it needs to be replaced. Whenever EU finishes working out how the standard should be (they will finish in 1-3 years or so), we will go for a complete replacement
20:58:52  <Bjarni> and kill off the WW1 and WW2 era technology in our signal systems (yes, we got pre WW2 stuff still in service)
20:59:05  <nairan> heh nice
21:00:50  <nairan> the tech here is quite frail(sp?)
21:01:02  <Bjarni> funny thing is that when I went to a railroad museum, they had a signal post control unit on display, saying that it's really old (it didn't have buttons, but turning knobs and stuff) and I was like "that's just like back home"
21:01:32  <Bjarni> it works great, but it can't be remote controlled, so it has to be locally staffed 24 hours/day

21:27:10  <Bjarni> you are not supposed to eat it :P
21:27:12  <svip> You can't do it without tasting it.

21:27:41  <mikl> I live right next to Museumsbanen Maribo-Bandholm
21:27:53  <Bjarni> I was there.... yesterday
21:28:01  <svip> "It looks like toxic waste, it smells like toxic waste."  "What does it taste like?"  *tastes* "Uhm!  Strawberries!  Ah, but with a distinct aftertaste of toxic waste."
21:28:03  <Bjarni> well, almost
21:28:29  <mikl> Bjarni: Indeed - were you with the Togtosse-group we had for dinner last night?
21:28:30  <Bjarni> it smells like burning coal and steam
21:28:59  <Bjarni> mikl: err.. no. I was there on family business
21:29:07  <Bjarni> not train related
21:29:26  <Bjarni> did take a picture of NykÞbing FC though
21:29:28  <mikl> ah, well - it would have been a fantastic coincidence :)
21:29:33  <Bjarni> because I could :p
21:30:18  <Bjarni> mikl: so you had a visit by a whole lot of railroad freaks?

21:44:32  <Bjarni> yeah
21:44:39  <Bjarni> yet it was still visible
21:45:14  <Eddi|zuHause> i assume you have rather flat land, so it is visible a pretty long time :)
21:45:44  <Bjarni> not in areas with trees and buildings and a curved track
21:46:10  <Bjarni> so it would be like say 3-400 meters
21:47:38  <Eddi|zuHause> and how often does the train go? 2h?
21:48:11  <Bjarni> she had to wait for THE SAME TRAINSET to return X)

21:50:12  <Eddi|zuHause> no, the tracks are used... just that particular train route lead only through that city once a week
21:50:19  <SpComb> Logs: (old: )
21:50:19  <NukeBuster> !logs
21:51:34  <Eddi|zuHause> and afaik, tracks have to be unused for 5 years before they can be declared abandoned here
21:52:37  <Eddi|zuHause> which is sometimes a problem... i remember a report of a brand new bridge being built over tracks to replace a level crossing, where there was no train for over 2 years
21:52:51  <Bjarni> actually I think it's some sort of in between state they enter. You will have to inspect the tracks before you can use them again and you will need to get a written permission to start using them again
21:53:10  <Eddi|zuHause> because of some rule that new major roads may not have level crossings
21:53:30  *** KouDy [user@] has quit [Quit: Trillian (]

21:56:20  <Bjarni> we had the opposite situation here
21:57:01  <Bjarni> a new road was planned and nobody though about the railroad they had to cross
21:57:13  <Bjarni> so the road people decided to just close the rails

21:58:36  <Bjarni> Mariager
21:59:21  <mikl> oh, never heard of it...
21:59:47  <Bjarni> the railroad is only used by vintage trains, yet it's not owned by the vintage railroad company, but the local government (who bought it when it went bankrupt so they could reopen it if possible)
21:59:53  <mikl> the mainstream media usually doesn't concern itself with old railroads :/
22:00:20  <Bjarni> I don't know this from the media. I think they completely bypassed this one
22:00:24  <ln-> it would be easiest just to close all railroads.
22:00:39  <mikl> ln-: yeah, bicycles for everyone :D
22:00:52  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't think such a situation coult occur here...
22:01:12  <Eddi|zuHause> there are so many institutions involved when planning even the shortest routes
22:01:16  <Bjarni> the road people had no right to plan like that, yet they did anyway
22:01:20  <NukeBuster> anyone know if BEGIN_TILE_LOOP is also used other than in clear_cmd.cpp?
22:01:20  <ln-> I bet e.g. in Copenhagen or any capital there is a lot of expensive land area right in the center covered by useless rail yards.
22:01:32  <Bjarni> NukeBuster: try grep
22:01:37  <Eddi|zuHause> i mean they stopped building an autobahn bridge because it would affect a hamster family...
22:01:37  <NukeBuster> thnx
22:01:43  <mikl> ln-: indeed there is
22:01:54  <Eddi|zuHause> a rail should not go by unnoticed :p
22:01:59  <NukeBuster> didn't think about that one :)
22:02:03  <Bjarni> ln-: it's not useless in Copenhagen. It's in use
22:02:07  <mikl> ln-: but they are actually scrapping some of it - I suppose they are going to use it for something else
22:02:20  <ln-> Bjarni: could be replaced by buses and trucks. roads already exist.
22:02:41  <mikl> Bjarni: there is a large area between NÞrrebro and Bispebjerg that's not in use
22:03:00  <Bjarni> it is
22:03:23  <Eddi|zuHause> a lot of old rail territory is from the 19th and early 20th century
22:03:28  <Bjarni> it's used to turn trains and stuff
22:03:49  <Bjarni> but people just use the EMUs and never notice this
22:04:19  <Eddi|zuHause> especially freight traffic reduced since then, so a lot of tracks are unused now

In that case, even simple tasks would close the line. Now they have somewhere to go when a train needs to pass
22:08:26  <Bjarni> they also need a place to turn around and it's the only location on the line where they are able to do so

22:20:41  <Bjarni>  56°34'10.89"N,   9°51'14.62"E <-- this is the location of the road/rail incident. I think they ended up with a good solution
22:21:36  <Bjarni> notice that the road is not higher than planned. They just built a "pipe" on top of the tracks before they added dirt
22:21:54  <Smoovious> saddens me whenever I see an  unused line being razed and built over it... obtaining land inside the city for  a future lilne is  so  hard to come by
22:23:15  <Smoovious> we recently consolodated the commuter bus and inter-city bus stations i nto the same place... right on a piece of property  that used to be u sed by one of the rail companies... and moving the amtrak station to the same location would have been perfect...
22:23:50  <Smoovious> but a year before they did that, the rail company, solld off its abandoned line, and there was a corner of a building blocking the right-of-way...
22:23:58  <Bjarni> I know of a location where some people wants to rebuild a railroad and use it for steam trains. So far nothing happened because of a bike trail

22:25:49  <Bjarni> we have a law about buildings like that.... the government can declare that it will have to go to give room for something that is needed by the country (like a railroad)
22:26:13  <Smoovious> but the  company who owned t he line, sold it to them
22:26:17  <Bjarni> the owner will then be compensated, but it's not a showstopper
22:26:28  <Bjarni> yeah, that's stupid
22:27:23  <Smoovious> I have t he same problem... I keep allmost everything, even if  I don't have a  current use for it... and too often, right after  I get rid of it, I find a use for it
22:27:54  <Smoovious> it was  the only line we had left touching downtown
22:28:08  * Smoovious shrugs.
22:29:31  <Smoovious> could have e expanded our passenger rail service with thhat line... as it is now, not much we can do, with the current station sitting right on a major through-line... single-tracked in that section too
22:29:53  <Smoovious> so we only have 1 service which leaves at 6:30a, and returns after 11p
22:30:36  <Eddi|zuHause> i never heard much good about passenger rail in the USA
22:30:43  <Bjarni> here there are some politicians, who wants to spent a fortune (tax money) in order to turn a closed shipyard into some cultural... something. One of the politicians noticed the railroad in front of it and declared in public that he wanted it closed because it spoiled his dream of this cultural place
22:31:28  <Smoovious> there was this  large station c omplex t hat was built next to the freeway at the northern end of the Norfolk Southhern yard here in town... they even brought i n ana old steamer and caboose, restoreed, for display...
22:31:28  <Smoovious> it looked real promising as it wa g oing up
22:31:41  <Bjarni> I think sanity went down the drain. The line is in use and have 20 minute intervals
22:32:22  <Smoovious> but it isn't serviced b y a single  train... there are 2 tracks  behind it so the yard can still get in and out... but the complex, whihch looks like a train station... is being used as a trucking terminal
22:32:23  <Bjarni> for passenger service
22:33:32  <Smoovious> <Eddi|zuHause> i never heard much good about passenger rail in the USA <--- passenger rail here doesn't have the lobbyists  that air and trucking have... they gov't put together Amtrak, and year after year, choke the life out of it... if they properlly supported it, we would have had a good widespread  service now
22:34:04  <Smoovious> as it stands  tho... Amtrak service is spotty at best... and all you reallly have are t he deplorable travellilng condition at the airports
22:35:03  <Smoovious> <Bjarni> I think sanity went down the drain. The line is in use and have 20 minute intervals <--- maybe the rail company should establish a new lilne... one that goes through t he politico's house, and take it via eminent domain, so he can h ave his cultural pllace
22:35:10  <Bjarni> I read about the teamster union vs Maersk case.... looked to me like the teamsters wanted to completely control the transport marked and used modern mafia methods :s
22:35:25  * Smoovious snorts.
22:36:05  <Smoovious> the teamsters were always more involved in their own interests than their memberrship... mafia-like is aabout right... very accurate...
22:36:14  <Bjarni> they went like "if you want to transport anything here, you can only do that with our people, so you will have to pay us to be allowed to transport goods"
22:37:00  <Bjarni> however Maersk didn't just apply to their demands. I don't know what the end result is though
22:37:26  <Bjarni> but if the teamsters wants to play it tough, then Maersk can play it tough too
22:37:38  <Bjarni> it's the worlds biggest container shipping company
22:38:11  <Smoovious> unions have their place, and lots of unions are doing a good job for their membershihp... but groups like the teamsters... do more to hurt the economy and the companies they deal with, than  anything else, IMHO
22:38:29  <Bjarni> and it's surprisingly not a company, that moves cash around to avoid taxes or tread their staff so they have union issues
22:39:05  <Smoovious> I don't join a union unless  I have no other  choice... I've always been able to do better negotiating my own contract than any union ever did for me
22:39:34  <Smoovious> the unnion reallly only helps those people who aren't worth what they're being paid
22:39:58  <Bjarni> both yes and no
22:40:03  <Bjarni> (mainly yes though)
22:40:31  <Smoovious> its funny how all my highest-paying jobs were non-union, and the lowest-ppaying jobs,  were union... the non-union companies have a lot more flexibility
22:40:47  <Bjarni> sometimes companies start to treat people like dirt and then the union helps getting the unpaid salary and stuff
22:41:27  <Smoovious> bah...  the company would have died eventuallly anyways
22:41:59  <Smoovious> there's more keeping their membership in line than there is fighting for  their membership going on
22:42:55  <Bjarni> unions kills flexibility. Here they have declared that train drivers shouldn't work overtime, so if a train is late (and it's the end of the drivers shift), it can end up with him not being allowed to finish even if he wants to. The union can tell him to stop where he is and wait for another driver to turn up and finish the run
22:43:26  <Bjarni> so it could take ages for him to go the last say 15 km so he can get home. That was not a problem until the union butted in :s
22:43:33  <Smoovious> yeah, that too... they get in my way more than help
22:44:28  <Smoovious> there have been several times where raises came around, and  i got told  they  tried to bump me up to more pay cuz of the work I did for them, but the union contract wouldn't allow it
22:45:19  <Bjarni> well, they should have said something in Canada... the railroad allowed 2 hours for sleep for a train crew. Afterwards they jumped on a moving train they should take over (took too long to stop) and fell asleep, ran a red light and made a headon collision
22:45:23  <Smoovious> and then there was a max ceiling I could be paid for the work... ... ... what kind of union is going to get in t he way of a company wanting to pay me more money?!!!
22:45:33  <Bjarni> it appears like all 5 people on board fell asleep
22:45:58  <Bjarni> because the railroad refused to let them sleep
22:46:05  <Bjarni> not good
22:46:52  <Smoovious> well, things like that are handled by the federal DOT rules for # of hours you can drive... and if you violate t hem, first offense is a suspension... 2nd, a year  suspension... and you couldl havve your licene to drive, revoked
22:47:25  <Bjarni> Smoovious: it's a communistic way of thinking. Everybody should be treated equally and they will perform equally and everybody will be equally happy
22:48:19  <Bjarni> Smoovious: err... the railroad said that the crew should work or get fired for refusing work, so the crew had no choice. The railroad company ended up getting some of the blame as well
22:49:04  <Smoovious> like, for trucking... I can only drive withhin the first 14  hours since I came on duty, unless I put in 8 hours in the sleeper...  after the 14 hours, I need 10 qualified hours of rest to reset t h e clock... then the 11/10 rule... for every 11  hours of driving, I have to have 10 hours off-duty...  and then no driving if I put in nmore than  70 on-duty hours within 8 days
22:50:26  <Smoovious> the 14-hour rule counts on-duty and driving time together, as well as  the 70/8  rule... the 11/10-hour rule, only counts driving time
22:50:43  <Bjarni> yeah, the railroad has rules like that as well, but if you get the message to violate them or get fired, then you have an issue
22:51:01  <TrueBrain> Bjarni: not really; you always have your own responsibility
22:51:14  <Smoovious> if we get told to continue driving, we have whistleblower protection, and thhe company will get fineed o r charged
22:51:16  <Bjarni> yeah, but it's still an issue
22:51:32  <Bjarni> but you will still lose your job
22:51:40  <Smoovious> no, we won't
22:51:51  <Smoovious> if we do, we have a cause o f action against the company
22:52:08  <Smoovious> and thhe DOT will go after them on our behalf
22:52:09  <Bjarni> and you trust the company not to find some other reason to get rid of you ASAP?
22:52:17  <Smoovious> the DOT represents the drivers... not the companies
22:52:17  <TrueBrain> if you get fired because you refused to work because you aren't allowed by law, the company will suffer terrible :p

23:08:12  <glx> d:/developpement/ottd/trunk3/src/zoning.h:19: warning: '_zoning' defined but not used
23:08:44  <svip> Oh.
23:08:49  <svip> Then you did get an old diff.
23:08:52  <svip> I'll make a new one.
23:09:10  <Smoovious> ib
23:09:11  <svip> Sorry about that.
23:15:37  <glx> svip: missing grf :)
23:15:53  <glx> is it on the forum?
23:16:11  <svip> Yes.
23:16:45  <svip>
23:18:09  <glx> ok I need to recompile again (was a release build)
23:18:31  *** DaleStan [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:18:31  <svip> Did you forget to patch. O_O
23:18:37  <glx> no
23:19:03  <glx> it crashed but I can't debug a release build
23:19:15  <svip> :o Oh, right.
23:21:21  *** alex____ [~email@] has quit [Quit: ircN 8.00 for mIRC (20070730)]
23:23:33  *** Mucht [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:25:39  <Bjarni> goodnight
23:25:41  *** Bjarni [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:25:55  <glx> ok sprite=16777215
23:26:06  <glx> of course it crashes :)
23:26:24  <svip> :O
23:26:35  <svip> So what needs fixing, oh great glx?
23:27:02  <glx> seems to be an incorrect palette
23:27:31  <Sacro> why don't you alter trams so they don't enter a tile unless they have a valid exit?
23:27:55  <svip> A lot of queue.
23:27:58  <glx> going up in the stack I'm in DrawSprite() and pal=4294967295
23:28:33  <svip> :|
23:28:34  <svip> Hm.
23:28:36  <Eddi|zuHause> Sacro: that would only move the problem one tile back, or not?
23:28:41  <svip> I didn't change that much of the code.
23:28:51  <svip> And not a lot involving the sprites.
23:29:03  <Sacro> Eddi|zuHause: nope, shouldn't do
23:29:22  <Sacro> hmm
23:29:28  <Sacro> unless you route into a 1 tile wide dead end
23:30:52  *** SmatZ [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
23:30:56  <svip> Could it be INVALID_SPRITE_ID, glx?
23:31:08  <svip> :|
23:31:16  <svip> But no PAL has that high a value, glx.
23:31:34  <Eddi|zuHause> if you send a tram backwards (from stopped state only?) it should just jump to the other track (if free)
23:32:03  *** Ammller [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
23:32:53  <Eddi|zuHause> pal=4294967295 <- this looks like invalid_id
23:33:07  <svip> Yeah.
23:33:12  <svip> But why would it stop in this case?
23:33:18  <svip> I mean, it didn't before when I used it.
23:33:24  <svip> Oh right.
23:33:25  <svip> :[
23:33:28  <svip> I know why.
23:33:30  * svip slaps self!
23:33:34  <glx> it tries to get this palette :)
23:33:38  <svip> I removed an if statement!
23:33:43  <svip> That checks if it is not INVALID!
23:33:48  <glx> lol
23:35:06  <svip> :D And now it doesn't crash!
23:35:46  <glx> gdb is your friend :)
23:35:59  *** NukeBuster [] has left #openttd []
23:36:17  <glx> but windows doesn't let me copy from the gdb console :(
23:37:04  <svip> :(
23:37:50  *** eggburt [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:38:52  *** Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:40:25  <svip> Hm.
23:40:32  <svip> It appears when doing dropdowns.
23:40:44  <svip> You have to DrawString() to draw some message on the dropdown first.
23:40:50  <svip> But what do I do if I want it to update?
23:40:54  <svip> Can I edit the string?
23:41:04  <svip> Or do I need to remove it and draw a new one?
23:41:09  <svip> Cause right now I am trying drawing a new one.
23:41:14  <svip> And that doesn't help at all.
23:42:41  <glx> look how it's done for other dropdowns
23:43:05  <svip> I am trying.
23:43:12  <svip> But I don't see any update.
23:44:23  <svip> Like how it is done for the map size in the generator world window.
23:44:23  <svip> case GLAND_MAPSIZE_X_PULLDOWN:  _patches_newgame.map_x = e->we.dropdown.index + 6; break;
23:44:32  <svip> Where does it update the text?
23:44:54  <svip> And I can plainly see it has drawn the string here.
23:44:55  <svip> DrawString(119,  91 + y, mapsizes[_patches_newgame.map_x - 6], 0x10);
23:46:06  <svip> Oh.
23:46:07  <svip> :|
23:46:14  <svip> It some how draws them outside of the window now.
23:46:31  <glx> remove {BLACK} in STR_ZONING_NO_ZONING
23:47:49  <glx> and following
23:49:00  *** helb [~helb@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:49:04  <svip> :( Now I have to recompile all.
23:49:05  <svip> Meh.
23:49:20  <glx> yes but it is the right way
23:49:30  <glx> no color command in dropdown texts
23:49:48  <glx> dropdown code does it by itself
23:51:04  <svip> Awesome.
