00:50:39  <fjb> Playing with the original road vehicles only in a game has one big disadvantage. They hardly make enough profit to buy new vehicles when they are getting old.

01:43:49  <Poopsmith> nah, the beach is too far away
01:45:48  <fjb> That is really sad.
01:46:03  <lobster> NO U
01:46:14  * Poopsmith is bored.
01:46:27  *** Guest372 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:46:56  <Poopsmith> it's one of those days where you think "oh, must be about 5pm" then look at the clock and discover it's only quarter to three
01:48:02  <fjb> My multiplayer game is boring now.
01:48:11  <Poopsmith> yeah, thats the problem i'm having
01:48:29  <Poopsmith> was thinking of trying a coop game for something different, but its using a nightly that doesnt seem to work on mac
01:48:43  <Poopsmith> (it being the openttdcoop public server)
01:49:14  <glx> try the ppc mac nightly
01:49:52  <Poopsmith> oh, ok... i'll give it a try
01:51:29  <fjb> We are having a friendly competitive game.
01:52:23  <fjb> The problem ist that the original road vehicles are the only vehicles in the game. Sounded like fun at first, but it is a bit boring.
01:53:44  <Poopsmith> yeah
01:54:07  <Poopsmith> problem on my game seems to be that the others don't seem to be playing anymore
01:54:26  <fjb> That is also boring.
01:54:50  <fjb> I'm spending all my money on replacing old vehicles.
01:55:37  <Poopsmith> glx: thanks, the ppc version works
01:56:25  <Poopsmith> i think thats the first non-universal app i've run on this mac   o_O
01:56:50  <fjb> Should be a bit smaller then.
01:57:04  <Sacro> that's what she said
01:57:06  <Poopsmith> yeah, but a bit slower, cos of the emulation
01:58:15  <fjb> Sacro: Don't talk about thinks you don't know about.
01:58:21  <Sacro> :(
02:04:51  <fjb> That vehicles have a small payload.
02:06:26  <Gonozal_VIII> payload? are you delivering to your moonbase or something?
02:08:45  <fjb> How else do you call the load that gets payed for.
02:08:55  <Gonozal_VIII> cargo?
02:09:09  <Gonozal_VIII> payload is for rockets and maybe planes...
02:09:16  <fjb> That truck has a small cargo. Sounds wrong.
02:09:50  <Gonozal_VIII> well... payload may be correct but it sounds strange too
02:10:49  <fjb> I don't think is sounds that strange. Why should that term be limited to flying objects?
02:10:56  <Eddi|zuHause3> i would translate "payload" with "useable capacity"
02:11:29  <Gonozal_VIII> maybe it's just my association...
02:12:14  <fjb> Better your association than your assasination.

02:16:11  <fjb> Profit is only about 20% of the running costs.
02:16:44  <Gonozal_VIII> 20
02:16:46  <Gonozal_VIII> %
02:16:49  <Gonozal_VIII> sounds good
02:16:58  <Gonozal_VIII> good investment :-)
02:18:23  <fjb> Original road vehicles only in that game. No trains, no ships, no planes, no vehicle grf.
02:20:04  <Eddi|zuHause3> grr... autoroad urgently needs a visual representation of the selected road bit
02:20:24  <fjb> 272 vehicles, income 9798336, running costs 7544028.

11:03:35  <mulrich|laptop> I can't build anything in the game! ;_;
11:03:55  <mulrich|laptop> Well, except for road buildings
11:04:05  <bumblebee> :S
11:04:06  <mulrich|laptop> I can't build rails, trucks, trains, etc
11:06:53  <mulrich|laptop> Anything?
11:07:27  <bumblebee> well if u havent paused the game I dont know
11:08:19  <peter1138> Usually that’s caused by starting the game before any vehicles are available.
11:08:34  <mulrich|laptop> When are the vehicles available?
11:08:51  <mulrich|laptop> It makes no sense that railroads aren't available in 1925
11:09:28  <mulrich|laptop> Since the first stretch of railroad was opened a hundred years before that
11:11:32  <Phantasm> 1950 is a good option to start.
11:11:41  <Phantasm> There are some train available before that as well, but not at 1925.
11:13:06  <Gekz> its time someone made a realism mod
11:13:13  <Gekz> with realistic car accidents
11:13:14  <Phantasm> Sub-arctic and tropical have first train at 1945 (some time during that year), temperate has first one at 1925 and toyland has first at 1946.
11:13:17  <Gekz> and pedestrians with bombs
11:13:32  <Phantasm> Gekz: For realilism mod, breakdowns would go down like hell.
11:13:32  <Vikthor> mulrich|laptop: You can use newgrf files(add-on sets), they add vehicles which are available before that
11:14:28  *** Ammller [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:15:01  <Vikthor> eg. DBSet and CSDset are usable from 1920's, Serbian set AFAIK from second half of 19th century
11:15:29  <mulrich|laptop> I can't install TTDPatch either
11:15:34  *** Diabolic-Angel [] has joined #openttd
11:15:39  <Vikthor> and there are others USset, Japanese, French...
11:15:41  <mulrich|laptop> Unless I don't need that for that newgrf thing
11:16:05  <Vikthor> You can use NewGRF with OpenTTD you dont nedd TTDPatch
11:16:09  *** Ammler [] has joined #openttd
11:16:09  <Vikthor> *need
11:16:20  <mulrich|laptop> Where do I put it?
11:17:03  <Vikthor> in the data subdirectory, then you have to add it to game using NewGRF settings option in Main menu

12:45:12  <Ammler> Hello, is it possible to "force" ottd only to look in data folder where openttd.cfg is stored? (ignoring mydocs)
12:46:31  <Roujin> copy the config file into the main folder (e.g. ...\OpenTTD)
12:46:39  <Roujin> (not the data folder)
12:47:15  <Roujin> then it should read and write from/to that one, and also put saves into \OpenTTD\save instead of mydocs\save
12:47:32  <Ammler> and it doesn't load GRFs from it?
12:48:05  <Roujin> from the mydocs folder? hmm good question
12:48:17  <Ammler> I like to make a clean "test environment"...
12:48:45  <Roujin> does it read GRFs from mydocs at all?
12:48:53  <Ammler> of course
12:49:05  <Ammler> you should use that that way
12:49:09  <Ammler> if you have different revisions
12:49:22  <Ammler> so you need i.e. the original grfs only once
12:49:35  <Roujin> i didn't know that - I always put grfs in the install folder (\data\newgrf)
12:49:42  *** Brianetta [] has joined #openttd
12:49:51  <Roujin> lemme check
12:51:17  <Roujin> nope, seems to check for newgrfs in the mydocs folder anyways
12:52:01  <peter1138> Just move them out of there temporarily, or set appropriate options for configure to not use it.
12:52:23  <Roujin> <Roujin> then it should read and write from/to that one, and also put saves into \OpenTTD\save instead of mydocs\save <--- that was bs. you can save where you want of course
12:52:30  <Roujin> I meant screenshots.
12:52:53  <Ammler> peter1138: of course, I'll do that now, but I was wondering, if there is an easier way.. :-)
12:52:55  <Roujin> with the config file in your openttd folder, it will place screenshots there as well
12:53:49  <Ammler> Roujin: it takes location from openttd.cfg
12:54:04  <Ammler> thats really cool
12:57:03  <Roujin> thanks for the hint with newgrfs in mydocs, that's something I didn't know ;)
12:59:24  <Ammler> there is also a "global" share place
12:59:32  <Ammler> if you share the pc with other users
13:00:14  *** ThePizzaKing [] has quit [Quit: ThePizzaKing]

15:03:05  <Ammler> peter1138: thats made by Osai
15:04:06  <Roujin> mmmh that should do it, but I thought some more limiting to the valid bits only wouldn't hurt if for some reason there are strange values saved in the config
15:05:48  <Roujin> e.g. one enters strange values in the config; or a transparency option is removed in trunk, one updates to newest revision and starts then..
15:07:13  *** |Bastiaan| [~Bastiaan@] has quit [Quit: KVIrc 3.2.6 Anomalies]
15:08:45  <Roujin> I'd at least change the if clause to check only the valid bits
15:09:22  <SmatZ> invalid data won't be loaded from config file
15:09:23  <Roujin> so that if strange bits are set for some reason (that are not visible in any way for the user) the transparency toggle will not act in a strange way
15:09:31  <SmatZ> if it is invalid, it is set to 0x1ff
15:09:37  <Roujin> well it's valid
15:09:42  <Roujin> it's a valid value

15:10:13  <Roujin> i mean valid as in bits 0..number of transparency settings
15:10:49  <Roujin> ok wait a second, you're right
15:12:13  <peter1138> I wanted to change as little as possible ;)
15:13:25  <Roujin> ok, argh, seems I didn't understand the actual problem up until now ><
15:14:21  <Roujin> then what you wrote should pretty much do it...
15:15:00  <Roujin> i'd still suggest to switch around the if-else because it's a kind of arkward double negation
15:15:49  <peter1138> Then I wouldn’t be changing as little as possible.
15:16:19  <Roujin> if (xxx == 0) then {foo;} else {bar;} ---> if (xxx) then {bar;} else {foo;}
15:16:31  *** a1270 [] has joined #openttd
15:17:28  <Roujin> If you want to change as little as possible, you shouldn't have included my comment fix that changed, in fact, nothing in the code. ;)

15:18:12  <Roujin> okay, you win
15:18:17  <peter1138> But we don’t tree values as boolean, so we’d need to do if (xxx != 0) then {foo;} else {bar;}
15:18:25  <peter1138> *treat
15:19:24  <Roujin> you don't? oO I'm pretty sure i've seen that a dozen times in the code... in fact i only learned that that was possible from the openttd code iirc...
15:19:47  <Roujin> is that regarded as bad coding style?

19:15:23  <Tefad> why are there sa and svs.
19:15:32  <Phantasm> They require different access to be used.
19:15:41  <Tefad> anyone heard of ACLs?
19:15:45  * Tefad shrugs
19:15:45  <Phantasm> For some commands there are overlaps sure, but generally not.
19:16:08  <Tefad> join part nick overlap
19:16:27  <Tefad> wasn't there even a quit one (which is basically a kill)
19:16:34  <Tefad> oh n/m
19:16:50  <Tefad> there was kill for opers that put "Kill:" in the message
19:16:58  <Tefad> then the services kill was literal string

22:10:58  <dih> LOL
22:11:14  <dih> i am working on something else when i have the time
22:11:42  <Vikthor> Yeah, I know that was just joke
22:11:47  <Gonozal_VIII> why are spectators even limited?
22:12:19  <Phantasm> Bjarni: Any idea when this will be possible as a route: 1) Buy a train to depot a 2) travel to station b and full load 3) travel to station c and unload 4) travel to depot d and sell <goto 1 as in it will buy a new one to different depot to replace the sold one and set it running> ?
22:13:10  <Gonozal_VIII> that idea sucks phantasm :P
22:13:14  <dih> when you have a decent script language that would be able to controll such actions
22:13:17  <Phantasm> IT won't suck, Gonozal_VIII.
22:13:32  <Phantasm> s/IT/It/
22:13:40  <Patrick`> it saves on money for buying a return track, right?
22:13:42  <Patrick`> dumbass.
22:13:44  <Patrick`> learn to signal
22:14:33  <Phantasm> Patrick`: You get higher rating to station as the trains are always all new and that will give you more materials to transport.
22:14:45  <Bjarni> Phantasm: currently not possible
22:14:47  <Phantasm> You'll also have less breakdowns which will significantly matter on overused tracks.
22:14:47  <Vikthor> Phantasm: It's basically cheating, teleporting trains from depot to depot
22:14:50  <Bjarni> and don't hold your breath
22:14:56  <Bjarni> .... or maybe you should :P
22:14:56  <Phantasm> Vikthor: No teleport, it is sell and buy. :)
22:15:04  <Gonozal_VIII> but the fact that somebody suggests that shows that the resell value decreases way too slow
22:15:11  <dih> lol Bjarni
22:15:13  <dih> that's mean ^^
22:15:16  <Patrick`> ... or waypoint in a depot and autoreplace
22:15:30  <Bjarni> it would give me time to look at serious issues
22:15:44  <Phantasm> Vikthor: I'm paying for the new train and selling the old one to 'whoever wants it' and therefore it is no teleporting of train as it is other train.
22:15:48  <dih> i thought my ottd spectating server was more interesting ^^
22:16:19  <Phantasm> Gonozal_VIII: Well, it is in reality profitable on a long route.
22:16:46  <Phantasm> It will also increase the secondary factory goods amount as you have more goods from primary factory hauled.
22:16:48  <Gonozal_VIII> is not... you get much less money back for a used vehicle
22:16:59  <Phantasm> Gonozal_VIII: Not that much less. I have calculated it.
22:17:19  <Gonozal_VIII> i know, that's why i wrote it's wrong
22:17:30  <Gonozal_VIII> the value should be reduced much faster
22:17:38  <dih> the code for such a spectating server already exists... just needs a little rearranging ^^
22:17:41  <Vikthor> Phantasm: Sometimes more realism isn't that bad
22:17:45  <Phantasm> The extra goods you get for the higher rating is worth more than the cost of selling the train (also you won't have running costs for returning part).
22:17:53  <Phantasm> Vikthor: It is actually totally realistic.
22:18:03  <Gonozal_VIII> i know that it makes more profit but it shouldn't
22:18:10  <dih> trains should not be sellable ^^
22:18:20  <Phantasm> dih: Of course trains should be sellable.
22:18:31  <dih> buy a train - keep it until it crashes ^^
22:18:32  <Phantasm> Are you saying you can't sell a train in real life?
22:18:35  <Vikthor> What using loco for one route and than selling it is realistic?
22:18:42  <Vikthor> *then
22:18:48  <Gonozal_VIII> it's not realistic, ever seen a used car for almost the same price as a new one?
22:19:03  <dih> Gonozal: even more pricy

22:19:35  <Phantasm> Vikthor: RL example: 1) Buy a hell of a lot of trains to be transported to your depot a like one a day 2) make them transport goods 3) sell them at depot b at the price someone is willing to pay.

22:21:21  <Patrick`> oh good, my favourite argument
22:21:21  <Phantasm> Bjarni: It COULD be done. No idea if someone is doing it or not, but it is possible.
22:21:30  <Bjarni> hehe
22:21:33  <dih> ^^
22:21:36  <dih> hit him
22:21:39  <Patrick`> someone who wants to exploit a bug in the game justifies it by pointing out all the other ways it's not realistic.
22:21:44  <Phantasm> It is not my problem if some (idiot) pays me too much for the used train. ;P
22:21:48  <Bjarni> you have NO idea how trains are traded in real life then
22:22:06  <Phantasm> Bjarni: You could do it.
22:22:18  <Phantasm> Bjarni: If you have enough money to go around and want to do it so, you could do it.
22:22:20  <Bjarni> at a great loss
22:22:21  <dih> yes - Bjarni probably could
22:22:26  <dih> but _you_ could not
22:22:34  <Phantasm> So? You could do it.
22:22:40  <Vikthor> not even Bjarni, he does not have the money I expect
22:22:52  <Bjarni> <dih> yes - Bjarni probably could <-- you really have high confidence in my railroad and trading skills
22:22:59  <Bjarni> are you spying on me?
22:23:07  <Phantasm> ;P
22:23:20  <dih> no - i dont have confidence in that
22:23:41  <dih> i only have confidence in you managing (some sneaky way i dont want to know how) to archieve such things ^^
22:23:57  <Phantasm> Bjarni: It is realistic to be able to be done. And in fact, I think on some cases it might be profitable even at scrap metal cost for the engine and wagons on selling.
22:24:08  <Vikthor> It was just guess, I dont know much engineers that could buy train they are driving
22:24:17  <Phantasm> One could argue that it being possible makes the cargo payments unrealistic.
22:24:22  <Patrick`> the resell value should include a "distance from purchased depot" degrasion
22:24:30  <Phantasm> Patrick`: No it shouldn't.
22:24:32  <Bjarni> actually I have been involved in buying a locomotive in real life
22:24:37  <Patrick`> since it's unfair to penalise people who buy a train then sell it without ever sending it on its way
22:24:37  <Phantasm> The reasell value should be as realistic as possible.
22:24:43  <dih> if you want more realism
22:24:45  <Bjarni> price: another locomotive and two cars
22:24:47  <Vikthor> Bjarni: But only as part of your company

22:25:01  <dih> and a auto-refitting trains with different waggons
22:25:13  <Phantasm> Patrick`: It is your loss for buying too many.
22:25:28  <Phantasm> If you buy one train too many in real life, you will lose money.
22:25:56  <Bjarni> interesting enough trains do not suffer the same quick value drop as cars do
22:26:02  <Vikthor> Phantasm: Well but in RL its not enough to click one time too many to buy more waggons
22:26:34  <Bjarni> but you would still lose a lot on buying and then selling right away

22:29:19  <Phantasm> If you transport goods 4 000 squares (from corner to the opposite cornet on 2048x2048 map) with maglev.. Say wood to paper mill.. Then do the same route back for paper to printing works, again for goods to town near the corner.. That is 4000 squares of wood+paper+goods transported in relatively fast time so you still get good price. If you add the 13% boost to rating on the first station, you'll get 13% more money from all 3 of those effectively. And you ...
22:29:25  <Phantasm> ... could also make it such that you use same train with different wagons for whole run and then buy a new one. That would be one engine + 3 sets of wagons.. The route will net you more at the 13% increase in goods than the total buying cost of the engine + 3 sets of wagons.

23:01:38  <Phantasm> Of course the power rating vary a lot etc, but comparing all the trains, you get enough statistics to prove the problem.

23:25:08  <Phantasm> Bjarni: If you look into the list, you'll see that with very few exceptions the list follows so that newer trains in same section have some more speed and HP. But, as dual head trains, they should be equal to two similar single head engines and as such the power rating should be twice of that. But as you can see, they all have half the power with exception of temperate diesel 6 dual, which might just be one of those few engines that are just more powerful ...

23:30:11  <Bjarni> Phantasm: I think it's intended to work as it works now
23:30:54  <Bjarni> there is a standard on how vehicles should work (newGRF stuff) and AFAIK we just follow those guidelines
23:31:22  <Phantasm> So, dual head engine just uses twice the space for equivalent output as the engine would have if it were single head?
23:31:27  <glx> and check the train properties once it is built
23:31:43  <Phantasm> glx: The displayed power is of the set, I have confirmed that.
23:31:55  <Bjarni> you forget to mention that the first two diesels in temperate are DMUs with passenger capacity. Unlike real locomotives they have the diesel engines under the floor making them way smaller
23:32:16  <Phantasm> Bjarni: Ok, I didn't take that into account. But look into all electric, monorail and maglevs?
23:32:41  <Phantasm> Bjarni: And those diesel trains that don't have cargo.
23:33:56  <Bjarni> the twin turbo diesel (diesel 7 in tropical) is built for speed, not power. The numbers look real on that one
23:34:47  <Phantasm> How about the monorail one?
23:34:50  <Bjarni> diesel 6 is Cennential, the biggest single frame locomotive in the world. If you look at it, it's two locomotives on one frame, giving it two real sized diesel engines
23:35:11  <Bjarni> so it should have twice the power of any other diesel engine of the same period
23:36:40  <Bjarni>  <Phantasm> How about the monorail one? <-- now you are starting questions about the engine design. You just accepted that the numbers are real for diesel and either the game handles this correctly or it don't
23:37:11  <Phantasm> The figures are hand put in game (original TT, and passed on from that on).
23:37:12  <Bjarni> I don't get the monorail engines but that's the way they are designed for some reason
23:37:32  <Phantasm> They are what they are put and it isn't about how game handles them.
23:37:43  <Phantasm> So if diesel engines are fine, it won't say other engines are fine by default.
23:38:11  <Bjarni> the game handles these engines by a standard system
23:38:21  <Bjarni> it reads engines like they are designed
23:38:27  <Bjarni> and treats them the very same way
23:38:31  <Phantasm> It is irrelevant how the game handles them.
23:38:39  <Phantasm> It is about the design problems and not how game handles them.
23:38:54  <Bjarni> but... the design is not in OpenTTD
23:39:04  <Bjarni> you add some grf files from TTD, remember? ;)
23:39:17  <Phantasm> Yes it is copied from TTD. But OpenTTD could fix problems in the original.
23:39:31  <Bjarni> the question is if OpenTTD reads data correctly, not if we like the design in the files
23:40:52  <Bjarni> so you are asking us to alter the numbers on these engines, right?
23:41:06  <Phantasm> Yes, to make them more realistic.

23:43:52  *** a1270 [] has joined #openttd
23:45:59  <Bjarni> vehicles aren't part of the game core
23:46:46  <fjb> The vehicles are in the files you need from your original TTD cd.
23:47:20  <Patrick`> the vehicles and stats are lifted directly from the original game
23:47:37  <Phantasm> It still doesn't mean they couldn't be changed (without altering original files).
23:47:43  <Patrick`> under a certain set of patch conditions and map generation conditions, the exact original game is playable. that's something we don't lose sight of
23:48:10  <Phantasm> It could be made a patch setting.
23:48:28  <Patrick`> oh boy, another patch setting
23:48:31  <SmatZ> no, this is what NewGRFs are good for
23:48:32  <glx> Phantasm: they can be changed, you just need to code a newgrf
23:48:33  <Patrick`> there are new vehicle sets out there
23:48:43  <fjb> And why should one loadable set of vehicles be changed when there are a lot of other loadable vehicle sets? Just load another set.
23:50:38  <fjb> Why should your microwave oven change your pizza when you just can buy another brand of pizza?
23:50:54  <Phantasm> You aren't getting the point clearly.. The fact there is newgrf system doesn't mean that should be used to fix everything. 95% of the newgrf vehicles are totally unrealistic, out of balance etc. And afaik you can only load one of those per vehicle type (or possible hope multiple work without no guarantee).
23:51:10  <Phantasm> That would effectively require me to maky my own newgrf to fix the problem.
23:51:37  <glx> ukrs and dbset are realistic
23:51:53  <Phantasm> It is hypocritic to state that just because the user can fix the problem it won't be fixed in the game with say patch setting that could be reversed.
23:52:07  <SmatZ> Phantasm: edit table/engines.h and have your own vehicle parameters :-P
23:52:13  <fjb> At least the rail sets are way more realistic then any of the original vehicles.
