00:40:14  * fjb hates it when serviced ECS industries are closing down only because the related town didn't get a statue yet.
00:40:52  <Eddi|zuHause2> what kind of stupid system is that anyway?!?
00:41:47  <fjb> The statue keeps your rating high enough to keep the industry working.
00:42:53  <fjb> With a station rating below 75% the industry has a good chance to lower it's production every month.
00:46:08  <Eddi|zuHause2> yes... as i said before... with difficulty set to stable industry, industries that are serviced should never _ever_ close down... it's a total misdesign of the grf...
00:49:29  <fjb> Difficulty is changing economy. But even then it shouldn't close down when it always has trains or trucks waiting. And the trains and trucks in the early game are not fast enough to keep the rating at 75%. That is only the case the first year after buying the vehicle. Then the rating goes down to 69% if you always have a vehicle waiting at the sation.
00:52:44  <fjb> And when you are using a vehicle set like UKRS where the running costs are almost as high as the building costs you can only use the cheapest and slowest vehicles till you start to earn really big money. But that becomes a problem when all industries start to decrease their production.
00:53:29  <fjb> 30 tons are not much production for a mine.

01:19:53  <Eddi|zuHause2> exactly... 75% is a pretty sharp threshold
01:20:32  <SmatZ> what happens if it is not serviced at all?
01:20:37  <SmatZ> it closes soon?
01:21:26  <Eddi|zuHause2> afaik the industries have a "protection period" of 5 years until they start closing down

01:49:10  <mattt_> Does cargo transfer between two different stations that are near each other?
01:50:17  <Eddi|zuHause3> no
01:50:22  <mattt_> ok
01:57:20  *** Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:01:39  <mattt_> What happens to cargo if I have a train that transfers and picks up the same cargo at the same station?
02:01:59  <mattt_> will it pick up the 'same' cargo?  or will it matter?

02:09:43  <Eddi|zuHause3> yes, it will pick up the cargo it just dropped
02:10:06  <Eddi|zuHause3> transfer only makes sense with "and leave empty"
02:14:18  <mattt_> i wanted to relay cargo to maximize distance between delivery points..
02:23:07  <Eddi|zuHause3> yes, but it only works one way
02:23:37  <mattt_> yeah.. I just thought of setting up a big series of relays
02:23:49  <mattt_> I can do it with separate stations

12:57:39  <Gonozal_VIII> those upside down screenshots are rofl
12:59:39  <Gonozal_VIII> if it's a fake, it was a lot of work
13:00:17  <SmatZ> I am not sure if you do a screenshot when you have rotated screen

13:00:56  <LordAzamath> hello
13:01:07  <SmatZ> because when you open that screenshot in an editor with rotated screen
13:01:12  <SmatZ> it would be rotated twice

13:06:40  <LordAzamath> maybe I have some other MORE important things to do :P

13:50:13  <Belugas> your pic reminds me of The Finger Of God
13:50:33  <Celestar> August and September 1977. I wasn't even born then
13:50:39  <Belugas> i was
13:50:45  <Celestar> and both probes are still actively doing science
13:50:53  <Belugas> i don't remember any particuliar brouhaha for the event...
13:51:11  <Belugas> i do remember clearly the first time the shuttle was launched
13:51:22  <Celestar> well. It was manned. So Brouhaha :)
13:51:41  <Celestar> Voyagers were planned to last 12 years.
13:51:45  <Belugas> i do remember seeing it flying around Montreal, on top of a 747 too...
13:51:56  <Celestar> now they're over 30 years old
13:52:04  <frosch123> hmm, I guess my generation clearly remembers tschernobyl on tv...
13:52:07  <Celestar> expected to operate for another 12.
13:52:36  <Celestar> That'd be 42 years of continuous operation.
13:52:43  <Celestar> Nice power plant they have ;)
13:52:48  * Belugas agrees with frosch123
13:53:01  <frosch123> was 4 at that time :)

13:57:34  <frosch123> Belugas: The avarage radiation was increased for at least one year in europe, and noone knew what was coming down with the rain
13:57:35  <Belugas> space does not bring back oil ...
13:57:58  <Celestar> Belugas: with fusion power plants and space flight, there's no need for oil
13:58:35  <frosch123> ln: average?
13:58:38  <Celestar> You just get He-3 and H-2 from space and fuse it on Earth. 75% of our planetary problems would be solved.
13:59:12  <frosch123> Celestar: like you want to bomb three quarter off?
13:59:19  <Celestar> frosch123: nope.
13:59:34  <frosch123> :p
13:59:46  <Celestar> but 75% or our problems are because of the ill-distribution of wealth which is directly correlated to the ill-distribution of energy.
14:00:05  <Celestar> Fusion power is a way to solve the dilemma. The only way I can see up to now.
14:00:16  <frosch123> insert water between wealth and energy
14:00:36  <Belugas> Celestar, obviously, the problem is how much is going into the pockets of the rich ones ;)  Dropping oil is going to stirr some controversy.  PLus, rememeber petroleum is not only generating gaz for the pumps...
14:00:39  <Celestar> frosch123: not between, but the water distribution problem is also part of the energy distribution problem.
14:00:56  <Celestar> Belugas: no, but 99+% is

14:09:18  <Celestar> space exploration without human exploration is meaningless imho
14:09:46  <Celestar> The Shuttle resulted in a "go nowhere, do doing"-approach that NASA had for 25 years.
14:09:56  <Belugas> or Cassini-Huygens probe even...
14:10:06  <Celestar> similar to us Europeans, who still have a "go nowhere, do nothing"-approach
14:10:25  <Celestar> Cassini-Huygens is an outstanding mission
14:10:29  <Belugas> i differ from your opinion, Celestar.  Robot expolaration is far more usefull than human ones
14:10:40  <frosch123> agrees with belugas
14:10:40  <Belugas> they last way longer,

14:11:18  <Belugas> they only lack quick decisions
14:11:20  <Celestar> From a rocket scientist point of view, Robot exploration is (should be) used to pave way for human exploration.
14:11:41  <frosch123> and what shall the humans do, which robots cannot?

14:12:39  <Tefad> usage.. exploitation

14:12:57  <HMage> robots with openttd ai will walk in a very funny waty
14:12:59  <HMage> way*
14:13:22  <Celestar> plus: from a cost point of view, robotic missions are no cheaper the human missions.
14:13:31  <Belugas> huu????
14:13:34  <Celestar> They never have been, and never will be.
14:14:05  <Celestar> Belugas: cost per experiment or cost per obtained knowledge is pretty equal between robotic and human missions.
14:14:36  <keyweed_> humans have been built and tested. they're fairly reliable and can adapt without the need of elaborate programming
14:14:40  * Belugas cannot imagine the cost of having humans doing the job of Spirit and Opportunity for the 1470 days and more they are working out there
14:14:45  <Celestar> for experiments, the average is around  million / experiment. ISS can lower this to around .
14:15:39  *** Ammller [] has joined #openttd
14:15:43  <keyweed_> the downside of using humans is that they usually want to be flown back
14:15:48  * Belugas thinks Celestar is not rational on that matter.
14:15:51  <Celestar> keyweed_: yes.
14:15:58  <Celestar> Belugas: I'm pretty pragmatic on that matter.
14:16:45  <Celestar> A manned mission to the moon, if done right, is no more expensive than Cassini-Huygens.
14:17:05  <Celestar> "The best computer is a man, and it’s the only one that can be mass-produced by unskilled labor"
14:17:13  <Belugas> then, give me the digits of having 2 humans walking on Mars for 1470 and more days. Including life support and all
14:17:14  <keyweed_> too bad people aren't willing to go on kamikaze space missions
14:17:24  <keyweed_> that would reduce cost a lot
14:17:27  *** Jortuny [] has joined #openttd
14:17:59  <Celestar> Belugas: the thing is, how much do we obtain from a 500-day human mission to Mars. Estimations are about 100x that of what all missions to Mars have given us up to now.
14:18:16  <Belugas> or better yet, waht type of spaceship will be required to sustain a human on the Cassini mission...
14:18:36  <Belugas> no... we are talking about costs, not dividents
14:18:45  <Celestar> A properly designed human mission to Mars is about 30 billion dollars.
14:19:00  <Celestar> that's 2.5 months worth of war on Iraq
14:19:14  <Belugas> how long for that mission?
14:19:19  <keyweed_> i think it can be done cheaper
14:19:24  *** keyweed_ is now known as keyweed
14:19:36  <keyweed> virgin (russian?) style
14:19:36  <Celestar> Belugas: 500 days there, 1000 days on Mars, 500 days back. 6 people.
14:20:24  <Belugas> is it a personal estimate?
14:20:35  <keyweed> but it doesn't matter much what we think. the human race rather spends it's time blowing eachother to small bits.
14:20:50  <keyweed> and i think this will be the most popular activity for a long time to come.
14:21:06  <Celestar> Belugas: no, it's an estimate from people who iterate reference missions to Mars within NASA

15:55:05  <UnderBuilder> how they made it? I hear that the desert and the snow had the same ID for terrains and then would be impossible to have them together
15:55:25  <Yorick> if you change the ID
15:55:35  <frosch123> UnderBuilder: It only worked for exactly that map. Hardcoded.
15:55:41  <Yorick> its "hacked"
15:56:05  <frosch123> UnderBuilder: But you can open the cheat menu and switch landscape until ottd crashes :p
15:56:50  <Yorick> desert gets changed to snow that way
15:56:53  <Yorick> same id ^^
15:57:03  <UnderBuilder> would more fun if toyland were too added

16:06:00  <Belugas> this is a desing

16:07:06  <Belugas> a constraint is not a requirememt for a change of design
16:07:18  <Belugas> that is called a new feature
16:07:31  <Draakon> right right, for conclusion, we can code, we can dream or we can play
16:07:58  <Belugas> a constraint is , for example, no more than 32 widgets to be referenced in a single window
16:08:06  <Belugas> that has been lifted
16:08:54  <Belugas> a constraint is that there is no more than 255 slots for vehicle types

16:26:48  <Draakon> bunch of numbers and letters that doesnt make sense(c++, java, php and python for example make)

16:27:08  * frosch123 has tried grfmaker only one or two times and does hardly know details.
16:27:15  <Belugas> well... they do make an awfull lot of sens....
16:27:45  <Belugas> and there are easy ways to translate them
16:28:38  <Belugas> on windows, the calculator has a "scientific" mode where yu can switch between hex, dec and binary
16:28:38  <Draakon> for me, as a noob, looked at C++ in the first time and Hex coding in grf, i understanded C++ better then Hex
16:28:41  <Belugas> even octal...
16:28:59  <Belugas> hex is so simpler than c++...
16:29:12  <Belugas> the mian idea to keep in mind in 16
16:29:13  <frosch123> Draakon: You won't have to deal with hex that much when using grfmaker

16:30:22  <Draakon> belugas: C++ is like a normal text that you can like read like a story of an adventure, while Hex you read it like it was your first time in even reading something
16:30:56  <Yorick> I fail at adding flags :(
16:32:04  <Belugas> Draakon, hex is just a numbering system based on 16.  C++ is a whole language on its own
16:32:10  <Belugas> you cannot compare them at all...
16:32:32  <Draakon> maybe some can, but still C++ is easier for me

16:35:01  <Yorick> I've not changed the md5 check yet, but that shouldn't be a problem
16:35:58  <UnderBuilder> is there a programming language hex-based like nfo?
16:36:28  <frosch123> UnderBuilder: There are languages based on whitespace
16:36:39  <Eddi|zuHause3> UnderBuilder: you can code directly in machine code
16:37:00  <frosch123> Yorick: Did you increase FLAGS_SPRITE_COUNT ?
16:37:06  <glx> Yorick: did you update the action 5 handler?
16:37:12  <Yorick> the what?

17:10:52  <pax```_> hi, i've a problem... I can't seem to find `win' button =( jk, I was wondering what makes a town/station no longer accept goods... Is there some kind of goods counter that says a town needs x goods and as soon as it's fulfilled it doesn't accept anymore?
17:11:28  <LordAzamath> no
17:11:28  <Belugas> nope
17:11:51  <Belugas> mostly, the town has shrinked
17:11:52  <LordAzamath> if it doesn't have enough goods accepting buildings in range
17:12:04  <LordAzamath> then it won't accept goods
17:12:14  *** Morloth [] has quit [Quit: Awaaaay!]
17:12:15  <Belugas> gonna said that...
17:12:23  <Belugas> saved me some keystrokes :D
17:12:27  <Gonozal_VIII> use the ? tool and click on buildings, then you see things like 3/8 goods
17:12:32  <pax```_> =( Is there a way to make it unshrink? >.<
17:12:46  <Belugas> not deleting houses, for once...
17:12:49  <Yexo> build a pax netwerk :)
17:12:52  <LordAzamath> have a passenger service running to the town
17:13:09  <LordAzamath> and perhaps Fund new buildings
17:13:20  <Tekky> Is the current passenger destinations patch similar to passenger destinations in SimuTrans?
17:13:33  <Belugas> dunno
17:13:34  <UnderBuilder> idea for controlling the town grow in temperate: make the towns only grow when passengers/mail/goods are being supplied
17:13:37  <Belugas> maybe, maybe not
17:13:46  <Belugas> ask prissi
17:14:05  <Patrick`> UnderBuilder: isn't that already implemented?
17:14:09  <Yexo> UnderBuilder, but goods are only accepted by big enough towns, so small towns cannot grow that way
17:14:21  <Patrick`> delivering passengers to small towns makes them grow
17:14:31  <Patrick`> but towns naturally grow at a slow rate, is that what you want to disable?
17:14:41  <Yexo> yeah, but UnderBuilder said make them ONLY grow when they are supplied
17:14:52  <mrfrenzy> it would be nice if all towns accepted goods, the amount proportionate to town size
17:15:07  <mrfrenzy> and town growth increases the more goods, food, and passengers they get
17:15:08  <UnderBuilder> I forget, only towns with above 1000 citizens require goods
17:15:39  <UnderBuilder> or maybe 500/750
17:15:48  <pax```_> Ouch... Fund new buildings is costly :(
17:16:17  <Belugas> you think?  chek how it cost to fund a new industry ;)
17:16:30  <UnderBuilder> so you require to transport pax and mail constantly to make the city build offices and buildings that accept goods and then you can do it grow more
17:16:43  <Patrick`> buildings accept goods.
17:16:56  <Patrick`> Yexo: I thought they still grew on supply when town growth was set to "off"
17:17:05  <glx> Yexo: setjmp is not provided by libpng
17:17:21  <glx> it should be part of standard dev env
17:17:30  <Yexo> Patrick`, didn't know that, gonna try it out
17:17:43  <Yexo> glx, any idea what package it could be in?
17:17:56  <LordAzamath> ok.. bbl perhaps
17:17:58  <LordAzamath> bye
17:18:07  <glx> dunno
17:18:13  <UnderBuilder> also, wasn't actually the town grow in temperate based on quantity of stations active?

17:36:31  <mrfrenzy> how do you mean "going back"
17:36:46  <mrfrenzy> if you use one way signals they will not reverse
17:37:14  <Yexo> they will reverse even with one-way signals

17:51:09  <UnderBuilder> UnderBuilder>	one question, the town growth in temperate depends on passengers transported or in the quantity of stations active in the city?
17:53:13  <Tekky> Yexo: which operating system do you have problems running OpenTTD on?
17:53:21  <Yexo> windows xp
17:53:36  <Tekky> which compiler are you using?
17:53:39  <Yexo> and I can run openttd fine, just my newly compiled version gives problems
17:53:55  <Yexo> gcc 3.4.4 under cygwin
17:54:06  <mrfrenzy> Yexo: have you tried buildottd
17:54:11  <Yexo> yep, works fine
17:54:13  <mrfrenzy> works really smooth here
17:54:29  <mrfrenzy> you can also use that environment to build whatever version you like
17:54:40  <Yexo> if I compile with ./configure --without-libfreetype --without-libpng && make it works fine
17:54:51  <Tekky> I'm not sure if the cygwin POSIX emulation environment is compatible with OpenTTD. Try using MinGW/MSYS instead.
17:54:57  <Yexo> But I just compiled with ./configure --disable-static and that gives problems
17:55:07  <kaan> Yexo: when compiling under cygwin there are some .ddl files you need to copy to the ottd dir
17:55:40  <Yexo> I did that, before it wouldn't even start
17:55:41  <dih> .ddl ?
17:55:50  <Yexo> and that's only when compiling with --disable-static
17:55:51  <glx> Yexo: if you use --disable-static you need the dlls
17:55:52  <kaan> oh, .dll
17:58:56  <UnderBuilder> one question, with an 256k connection what is the maximum mapzise of the server I can join?
17:59:29  <mrfrenzy> doesn't matter
17:59:39  <mrfrenzy> only problem is if you can't keep up to the changes
17:59:52  <glx> depends onmax_join_time I think

18:39:22  <kaan> Pinchiukas: do a search in the forums
18:39:26  <LordAzamath> breakruler :|
18:39:32  <Pinchiukas> pax```_: if you were telling me a warez site then maybe
18:39:43  <Pinchiukas> pax```_: anyway, thanks :)
18:39:47  * peter1138 ponders running a Gonozal_VIII's patch-pack server
18:40:04  <Pinchiukas> I'll make a package of the files and openttd and post it to my local tracker :D
18:40:08  <Gonozal_VIII> hmm
18:40:12  <LordAzamath> peter1138: Soon another ChrisIn will appear too :P
18:40:21  <LordAzamath> then another server? :P
18:40:29  <peter1138> no
18:40:38  <glx> Pinchiukas: don't do that
18:40:52  <Bjarni> <LordAzamath> but one can... Bjarni!.. can't hope that somebody makes atleast one good thing per day <--- I make at least one good thing each day
18:40:52  <glx> openttd files should not be distributed with ttd files
18:41:02  <Bjarni> in fact I make a lot of great stuff every day
18:41:14  <Bjarni> so much that it's hard for me to find time to code OTTD stuff :s
18:41:21  <Pinchiukas> glx: why not? It's already an illegal warez site
18:41:26  *** SmatZ [] has joined #openttd
18:41:37  <ln> glx: that doesn't make any difference really, does it.. (though I agree with you)
18:42:03  <LordAzamath> bjarni, I was referring to OpenTTD related stuff..
18:42:07  <LordAzamath> good things...
18:42:16  <Pinchiukas> you're all confusing me
18:42:21  <LordAzamath> like another sprites
18:42:32  * LordAzamath sometimes confuzes himself too
18:43:20  <LordAzamath> and because people have to do some other good things in their day aswell, you may not fear some several-day stallings :P
18:43:22  <glx> OpenTTD requires TTD files, but it should not distribute them
18:43:42  <LordAzamath> Because the grfs are copyrighted
18:43:45  <glx> we may have problems if it's the case
18:43:54  <LordAzamath> and OpenTTD has no rights to distribute them :P
18:44:20  <Bjarni> some people add those files though but we can't recommend those downloads... who knows if they have been modified in any way ;)
18:44:45  <Bjarni> well
18:45:05  <Bjarni> there are some people drawing sprites and hoping that we will some day have our own graphics
18:45:08  <Pinchiukas> so if I put the ttd data files along with openttd, then openttd would still not be distributing them
18:45:21  <Pinchiukas> how many sprites are there anyway?
18:45:30  <LordAzamath> trg1r.grf has...
18:45:30  <Bjarni> err
18:45:32  <Bjarni> a lot
18:45:33  <Belugas> over 5000
18:45:37  <ln> glx: if the copyright holders wanted to get OTTD in trouble, that would very well succeed with the current things. whether the graphics are distributed with it is only a small nuance.
18:45:41  <LordAzamath> 4791 sprites
18:45:43  <Pinchiukas> but they're so small and simple
18:46:00  <LordAzamath> Pinchiukas: Then try to draw them
18:46:06  <Belugas> sprites, sounds, music...
18:46:08  <LordAzamath> if you think they are small and simple
18:46:11  <glx> ln: right, but it's safer to have separate things ;)
18:46:14  <Pinchiukas> I'm not a drawer at all, but it looks simple to me :)
18:46:16  <Bjarni> ln: I disagree
18:46:23  <SmatZ> ln: I doubt
18:46:28  <Pinchiukas> I assume some of you are openttd developers?
18:46:34  <Bjarni> no
18:46:41  <Bjarni> we are all just freaks in here
18:46:50  <Pinchiukas> did you try contacting the ttd owners to ask to make the game open source or something?
18:46:50  <LordAzamath> bjarni, glx and SmatZ certainly not
18:46:50  <Belugas> the point is, right now, distribution of data has never happended.
18:46:51  <Belugas> only exe
18:46:56  <Bjarni> doing nothing but bullying the new guys :P
18:46:57  <SmatZ> nor Belugas
18:47:25  <Pinchiukas> I was also curious about the multiplayer thing - how is that done? I just see scores of others? that doesn't sound much fun :/
18:47:30  <ln> Bjarni: you are completely free to disagree, but that doesn't change anything.
18:47:31  <Bjarni> DorpsGek is a developer though
18:47:38  <SmatZ> :-)
18:47:40  <Belugas> it's not a matter of contacting or not
18:47:46  <LordAzamath> Pinchiukas: Atari was contacted..
18:47:49  <Belugas> it is a matter of ditribution
18:48:05  <Pinchiukas> Belugas: I don't quite understand what you mean
18:48:23  <Belugas> distributin is not allowed
18:48:27  <Belugas> that's it
18:48:45  <Belugas> we tried many time to contact Atari
18:48:46  <Pinchiukas> but if atari released the game/content as freeware, it'd be legal
18:48:48  <SmatZ> Belugas: do you mean distribution of TTD?
18:48:57  <Pinchiukas> Belugas: what did they say?
18:48:59  <ln> Bjarni: copyrighted text strings are distributed with OTTD, for one.
18:49:04  <Belugas> the fact we did not received any answers does not mean we can distribtue anything
18:49:20  <Pinchiukas> of course
18:49:25  <Pinchiukas> ah the bastards! :)
18:49:27  <glx> <Pinchiukas> but if atari released the game/content as freeware, it'd be legal <-- and ttd is still not free

18:50:20  <LordAzamath> Pinchiukas: I have bought the game

18:51:13  <LordAzamath> Marjack?

18:51:18  <LordAzamath> j->y
18:51:24  <SmatZ> Pinchiukas: nobody says you have to get TTD in an illegal way - everytime somebody asks where to download TTD, devs (and everyone else here) say to buy it
18:51:42  <Pinchiukas> is it even possible to buy it now?
18:51:45  <LordAzamath> yes
18:51:48  <glx> on ebay
18:52:33  <LordAzamath> but it's so old game.. Maybe the owners would be so kind to "sell" the rights for a symbolic 1 EUR or something :P
18:52:42  <LordAzamath> just for freewill
18:52:53  <SmatZ> LordAzamath: I doubt :)
18:52:57  <LordAzamath> why not
18:52:57  <Ammller> SmatZ: you should give him that link:
18:53:21  <SmatZ> Ammller: well, I am not happy this thread is at tt-forums
18:53:35  <LordAzamath> it doesn't bring in any money to anybody even right now..
18:53:48  <glx> SmatZ: tt-forums is not ottd forum
18:54:49  <SmatZ> glx: yes, at least :) but it stil can be connected with OTTD, and theoretically it could be used against OTTD (like owen is an OTTD dev, tt-forums are the most known forum about OTTD, many OTTD devs are speaking there, etc)

19:15:24  <orudge> if Chris Sawyer/whoever would just rerelase TTD
19:15:32  <orudge> it would probably make them back a bit

19:15:39  <orudge> that could then bring OpenTTD into further murky waters

19:20:17  <LordAzamath> even fo your own use?
19:20:26  <Ammller> exactly
19:20:38  <LordAzamath> well... he'll never know..
19:21:27  * LordAzamath considers licencing all his work so far with no-use licence :P. That means that you are not allowed to use them.

19:27:16  <yorick> locomotion aswell
19:27:19  <yorick> ^^

19:49:49  <Belugas> const char *GetCurrentIsoCode() should be documented
19:50:08  <yorick> as I said, it should be removed
19:50:12  <yorick> ^^
19:50:18  * Belugas nods
19:50:29  <ln> Belugas: and the documentation would be approximately "returns the current iso code"?
19:50:34  <yorick> [20:45] <yorick> the GetCurrentIsoCode should be removed
19:50:34  <yorick> [20:45] <yorick> but bugfixing comes first
19:50:41  <yorick> true ^^
19:50:48  <ln> why should it be removed?
19:50:57  <yorick> because it's not used anymore
19:51:12  <yorick> I replaced it by the grf_isocode table
19:51:13  <Belugas> i say, whatever you propose so someone else, add comments for the others not to spend time guessing
19:51:16  <Belugas> i say
19:51:44  <yorick> and I say, I just say that that function was still in there, and it should be removed

20:08:03  <Draakon> ups
20:08:04  <Draakon> typo
20:09:45  <ln> is it currently possible add a new feature to OTTD without rewriting half of the game?
20:09:50  <yorick> yes
20:10:01  <ln> yorick: you are not qualified to answer.
20:10:25  <yorick> yes, thanks
20:10:32  <peter1138> Yes.
20:11:48  <Bjarni> ln: that depends on what feature you want but generally yes
20:12:39  <ln> is it possible to e.g. attach a 4-byte integer to each tile without breaking everything?
20:12:46  <ln> err.. 4-bit i meant.
20:13:11  <yorick> yes
20:13:18  <yorick> probably
20:13:26  <Patrick`> yes.
20:13:26  <yorick> but why do you want such a thing?
20:13:27  <ln> 22:10 < ln> yorick: you are not qualified to answer.
20:13:35  <yorick> bytes enough on the map array ^^
20:13:36  <Draakon> shh!
20:13:37  <Patrick`> it'll break saves, it'll break networks and everything
20:13:41  <Patrick`> but as a branch it'll survive.
20:13:43  <Bjarni> ln: that's not even hard but why? :)
20:13:59  <Patrick`> I guess to add more map info per tile
20:14:06  <Patrick`> like, say, for heterogenous diagonal rails
20:14:13  <ln> yorick: i want a public telephone box on each tile, and a telephone needs a number.
20:14:16  <Bjarni> but what should be stored
20:14:27  <glx> Patrick`: there are enough free bits for that
20:14:27  <yorick> ah
20:14:35  <Belugas> 4 bits ??
20:14:50  <Belugas> 8 i would understand, but 4...
20:15:06  <yorick> 0-16 ?!
20:15:15  <Bjarni> ln: seriously what are you trying to store?
20:15:18  <glx> ln: use the TileIndex ;)
20:15:43  <dih> Whatsup ladies?
20:15:58  <ln> Bjarni: ah, you haven't been here any of the times when i've said: "how about introducing the concept of countries into OTTD".
20:15:59  <yorick> hello dih
20:16:01  <Bjarni> not your language skills :P
20:16:02  <ln> (that was a hint)
20:16:10  <Draakon> dih: when did you come online?
20:16:15  <Draakon> ups
20:16:21  <Draakon> forgot one thing'
20:16:26  <yorick> loong time ago
20:16:26  <Draakon> hello dih
20:16:33  <dih> look at my whois?
20:16:43  <yorick> not in there ;)
20:16:50  <Bjarni> ln: ahh.... I didn't know that you would actually do it. Besides I have been really busy lately
20:17:05  <dih> yorick: tis
20:17:15  <dih> [21:16]  * [dih] idle 00:00:42, signon: Tue Mar 11 20:35:19
20:17:18  <yorick> I stilll don't know where the whole countries is about
20:17:23  <yorick> nope...
20:17:36  <dih> say that again
20:17:36  <yorick> only for self ;)
20:17:41  <ln> Bjarni: i'm gathering information to be able to decide whether it's doable without an insane amount of work.
20:17:55  <Patrick`> now, I remember when bigmaps were first introduced
20:17:56  <dih> how about /msg info dih
20:18:00  <Belugas> ln, sorry, but... phone box is one thing, but countries?  should not be requiring bits on the map
20:18:03  <Patrick`> and at one point the max map size was 4096 square
20:18:04  <Bjarni> would 4 bits be enough?
20:18:11  <yorick> info no such nick/channel
20:18:12  <Bjarni> imagine the Europe map
20:18:25  <yorick> 16 countries
20:18:32  <Patrick`> so I propose that the map size should not be limited to 2048 in each direction, but instead limited to 2048 ** 2 tiles
20:18:34  <dih> yorick: looser ^^
20:18:40  <Patrick`> so you could have an 8192 x 512 map :)
20:18:46  <ln> Belugas: well yes, countries could be stored to some other structure.
20:18:46  <Belugas> proposal rejected
20:18:51  <Patrick`> aww :(
20:18:53  <Belugas> indeed ln,
20:18:55  <Patrick`> it'd be trivial to code though
20:19:01  <Patrick`> to the branchmobile!
20:19:24  <Bjarni> <yorick> 16 countries <-- I know what 2^4 is but the question is if it's enough
20:19:26  <Belugas> it's the only sane way to go, i think
20:19:42  <Belugas> but, to be honest, i don't like at all the whole country idea
20:19:42  <ln> 22:18 <@Bjarni> imagine the Europe map  <-- "i thought Europe is a country!"
20:19:48  <Bjarni> :D
20:19:59  <Draakon> lol
20:19:59  <yorick> me neither
20:20:11  <Draakon> Europe is a part of the world
20:20:21  <yorick> a very cooperative one
20:20:31  <Belugas> if ever the map should be divided, it wold make way more sens to have geological regions, or economical ones
20:20:36  <yorick> we wouldn't be here speaking english otherwise ^^
20:20:47  <Draakon> we would
20:21:01  <Bjarni> ln: <-- you are thinking of this one, right?
20:21:10  * Belugas puts on ignore list both draakon and yorick
20:21:12  *** Zaviori [] has joined #openttd
20:21:12  <ln> btw, btw, it's still not technically possible to have all three types of climates in one map?
20:21:24  <yorick> :(
20:21:27  <Draakon> why Belugas?
20:21:30  <ln> Bjarni: exactly that one.
20:21:35  <yorick> I don't believe him
20:21:54  <Belugas> as i explained earlier, yes it can be done, but to a big extend
20:22:11  <Belugas> lot of work, in fact
20:22:20  <Belugas> if it has to be done properly
20:22:39  <ln> (are you answering to me?)
20:22:44  <Belugas> yes
20:22:46  <ln> cool
20:23:11  <Belugas> as the others who might have slipped usual non sens comments are now on ignore
20:23:29  * Draakon ignores everyonre
20:23:29  <ln> it's just that all climates on one map would make sense.
20:23:34  <Draakon> everyone*
20:23:40  * Belugas does not agree
20:23:52  <yorick> does your igore list work with hostmasks?
20:24:00  <Draakon> mine?
20:24:08  <yorick> no, Belugas's
20:24:17  <ln> Belugas: why not?
20:24:47  <Belugas> the thing is, it might make sens visually on big maps, but as the map size is getting smaller, it will look silly for once
20:25:08  <Belugas> second, the chain of production as it is will be useless
20:25:23  *** paulsen [~paulsen@] has quit []
20:25:24  <Draakon> you only add tiles

20:25:34  <yorick> finally works!
20:25:34  <Belugas> if i may say so
20:25:39  <ln> ok, there could be some minimum distance between climates, so many wouldn't fit on a small map.
20:25:50  <Draakon> yorick: What? where who?
20:25:50  * Belugas nods
20:25:53  * yorick can see the South-African flag on the server-list!

20:44:20  <ln> where are the tiles drawn?
20:44:23  <TheJosh> 0.6.0
20:44:52  <Belugas> it is frozen (feature wise) as we speak,

20:45:28  *** Purno [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
20:45:55  <TheJosh> ok. so when will it be de-frozen? basically to get to the point, i would like to rewrite shares, and I would do it in a number of patches, with the first being a new GUI seperate from the company details GUI
20:46:36  *** roadfish [] has joined #openttd
20:47:39  <dih> then write it
20:47:43  <dih> :-)
20:48:02  <TheJosh> duh but if the trunk is feature frozen then it wont get in for ages
20:48:12  <roadfish> at talk:Village Pump, I read about a "Offline Wiki" that can be downloaded ... where is download located?
20:48:13  <dih> no
20:48:25  <dih> that is a completetly different thing
20:48:37  <dih> you writing a patch and it getting in to trunk are separate things
20:48:44  <Belugas> trunk is frozen 'cause of release of 0.6
20:48:56  <Belugas> it's going to be unfrozen after ward
20:49:03  <Belugas> release is imminent
20:49:07  <TheJosh> i know
20:50:04  <TheJosh> so theres no point me writing a patch until its defrozen
20:50:11  <glx> why?
20:50:13  <TheJosh> or i will be waiting for ages to get it in
20:50:18  <Belugas> well.. you would be pretty fast...
20:50:34  <dih> thejosh - wrong approatch
20:50:39  <TheJosh> ok ill write now
20:50:44  <dih> :-)
20:50:50  <Belugas> writing a patch and getting it into trunk are totally not related in anyways
20:50:57  <roadfish> #join /wiki
20:50:58  <dih> at least then you also have time to introduce it on the forums and get feedback :-)
20:51:08  <TheJosh> good point
20:51:16  <dih> remember bugs
20:51:24  <dih> they are never intended, but always present
20:51:40  <peter1138> Except rivers ;)
20:51:50  <roadfish> wiki

20:52:18  *** UserErr0r [] has joined #openttd
20:52:41  <TheJosh> So is a new shares system a desirable feature?
20:53:04  <dih> what you want to achieve?
20:53:23  <Belugas> objectives?  why is it required?  What was the problems with the old one?
20:53:34  <Belugas> who required it?
20:53:37  <Belugas> whne?
20:53:39  <TheJosh> 1. New GUI - a seperate window listing all the companies and how much of the actual company they own
20:53:39  <Belugas> where?
20:53:42  <peter1138> Well the shares cheat is a good reason to revamp it ;)
20:54:09  <TheJosh> 2. Shares not stored as percentages but as numbers (20,000 total per company for example)
20:54:10  <peter1138> But these things need stating...
20:54:22  <TheJosh> 3. Proper calculation of the share price
20:54:30  <TheJosh> they are the patches
20:54:38  <TheJosh> the reason - because of the cheat basically
20:54:52  <TheJosh> and theres a feature request for better shares
20:54:55  *** Zavior [] has joined #openttd
20:55:09  <peter1138> Who owns the shares by default?
20:55:25  <TheJosh> 100% owned by the company itself to begin with
20:55:28  <peter1138> Quite.
20:55:37  <peter1138> The current method makes no sense there...
20:56:00  <TheJosh> the first patch will be just the gui. the specifics of how shares will work will come in the later patches
20:56:06  <peter1138> I'm for it as long as it still remains simple.
20:56:22  <peter1138> Oh, and maybe toggleable.
20:56:31  <TheJosh> alright
20:56:33  *** roadfish [] has quit [Quit: ERC Version 5.1.4 (IRC client for Emacs)]
20:56:40  *** UserError [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:56:51  <TheJosh> i may even leave the buy-by-percentage and just have good share price calculations
20:57:19  <peter1138> Well the old system is already turn on-and-off-able.
20:57:29  <Belugas> 1. New GUI - a seperate window listing all the companies and how much of the actual company they own   <--- i'm a bit confused
20:57:53  <peter1138> I don't think it needs a new GUI. Just extend the existing bit.
20:58:03  * peter1138 "accidentally" opens a b eer.
20:58:12  <Belugas> a list of all the companies, and with the amount of shares the current company has in each of them?
20:58:21  <TheJosh> no
20:58:23  <Belugas> hoooo... beer
20:58:36  <TheJosh> currently is says on the company details page, 25% owned by ...
20:58:55  <TheJosh> and it will show upto 2 companies, when in fact 3 can own 25% each - thats a bug
20:59:36  <TheJosh> instead there needs to be a full list of all the owners of a company - so the company details window needs to be bigger, or just a new 'ownership details' window
20:59:49  <TheJosh> listing all the owners of a company, and how much they own
21:00:15  <Noldo> btw what is the point of owning part of a company?
21:00:38  <peter1138> TheJosh, simple enough to make it dynamically sized now, so each owner adds a new line.
21:00:49  <peter1138> That would keep it simple but able to show enough info.
21:00:57  <peter1138> (And adding a new GUI always makes patches massive)
21:02:16  <peter1138> Hmm, maybe I'm getting too technical already ;)
21:02:24  *** NukeBuster [] has left #openttd []
21:02:42  <TheJosh> ok you make a good point
21:02:45  <peter1138> Noldo, if it's done properly, you should be able to get a share of the profits.
21:03:03  <TheJosh> currently its just a way to cheat basically
21:03:33  <peter1138> So the question is, why sell off any of your company if you may lose profits?
21:03:44  <peter1138> (Maybe you need the up-front cash?)
21:04:04  <Noldo> that would be the reason why real companies do it
21:04:08  <Noldo> to get capital
21:04:56  <Noldo> it's basically just another kind of loan
21:05:06  <peter1138> Currently the first company able to buys up 75% of the other companies.
21:05:13  <Gonozal_VIII> i don't think dividends should be paid
21:05:38  <peter1138> But then they never sell because the other companies either go bust (and the purchaser's lost ) or continue making profit and there's no real point in selling...
21:06:01  <peter1138> Gonozal_VIII, what other incentives are there?
21:06:09  <Gonozal_VIII> value increase
21:06:36  <Noldo> somewhat irrelevat to the concrete gameplay
21:06:51  <Noldo> +n somewhere
21:07:01  <TheJosh> it should be done well or removed I think
21:07:14  <TheJosh> kinda pointless and switched off on tons of servers now
21:07:25  <Belugas> And would the real cash in hand be used as a measure?  or would it be the money plus the assets?
21:07:31  *** peter1138 is now known as not_peter1138
21:08:02  <Gonozal_VIII> could create a loop
21:08:20  <not_peter1138> not_not_peter1138?
21:08:44  <Belugas> not not makes it true

21:09:46  *** not_peter1138 is now known as peter1138
21:10:06  <Gonozal_VIII> calculating of company values including shares should be possible with equations
21:10:16  *** Zaviori [] has joined #openttd
21:10:24  <Gonozal_VIII> without creating a loop
21:10:30  <TheJosh> share price is more than just company value.
21:10:35  <peter1138> current system is silly as you don't own your own company
21:10:36  <Noldo> yes, but it has some quite interesting effets
21:10:42  <peter1138> so...
21:10:47  <Noldo> peter1138: but who is you?
21:10:52  <hylje> i prefer AC
21:11:29  <peter1138> Noldo: as a 'client' of the 'company' you get full control, therefore you are acting on behalf of the mysterious 'owner'
21:11:30  <Gonozal_VIII> you should definitely get the money if somebody buys your shares
21:11:43  <TheJosh> share price is what someone is willing to pay for your company. doing it that detailed would be too complicated, so you would probably make share price = total value of assets / number of shares in existance
21:12:03  <Noldo> peter1138: similar to railroad tycoon II ?
21:12:14  <peter1138> Noldo: never played it beyond building a train.
21:12:17  <Gonozal_VIII> peter, you start with zero capital only loan, so you are the owner
21:14:15  <peter1138> So basically we're saying that TheJosh should just get on with it? ;)
21:15:00  <Noldo> I'm not convinced that the shares add anything to the game, if you don't count the buyout option

21:20:17  <Noldo> in case of buyout, what happens to the player that used to controll the company?
21:20:37  <Noldo> -l
21:21:00  <TheJosh> i havent thought any of this through. Im gonna go the GUI thing first - and that can be counted as a bugfix
21:21:04  <peter1138> 1) it has to be agreed, no forced buyouts
21:21:24  <TheJosh> i agree
21:21:39  <peter1138> 2) player could just be switched to the buying company, or become a spectator.
21:21:51  <TheJosh> window popup: <player> has requested to buy you out

22:45:22  <Eddi|zuHause3> and is in the same location as the trg*.grf

22:46:03  <Tekky> yes, I am sure none of us have downloaded TTD from an abandonware site :)
22:46:03  <lolman> Copyright still applies bte there's noone to enforce it
22:46:03  <lolman> but*
22:47:13  <Eddi|zuHause3> which is not the case with TTD, so stop right there
22:47:22  <Eddi|zuHause3> actually, stop three lines ago

22:51:38  <TheJosh> how do you resize a window?
22:51:42  <TheJosh> in code

23:52:26  *** GT [~GT@] has joined #openttd
23:53:19  <TheJosh> When I resize a window with ResizeWindowForWidget, it is leaving garbage from where the window was
23:54:03  *** GT [~GT@] has left #openttd []
23:54:26  <TheJosh> ive tried calling RedrawScreenRect() but thats just segfaulting
23:55:52  <TheJosh> any ideas anyone?
23:55:59  <Eddi|zuHause3> MarkWholeScreenDirty() or something
23:55:59  <TheJosh>
23:57:18  <TheJosh> sweet. thats not an expensive function is it?
23:58:05  <TheJosh> ah I only call it when the window actually needs resizing so it shouldnt be too bad. Thanks for the help
