00:04:10  <sdtr443w> ok something is odd with my debugger.  I have a print statement in yapf's CanEnterNewTile() function that is getting printed, yet a breakpoint in there isn't being reached :(
00:05:14  <sdtr443w> I wonder if I have to disable optimizations or somesuch.
00:05:25  <sdtr443w> It would explain how stepping around is so erratic.

11:38:36  <X> howdy
11:38:52  <X> im trying to install openttd on my opensuse 10.3 (x64) machine (server)
11:39:01  <ln> "i'm"
11:39:24  <X> actually, it should be "I'm"
11:39:31  <X> so nuuuhh :P
11:39:37  <ln> so true.
11:40:05  <ln> actually it should be x86_64.
11:40:13  <hylje> amd64
11:40:35  <X> vendor neutral better
11:41:41  <ln> ok, now that we have successfully avoided getting to the point, or the point getting to us, go ahead and describe your problems.
11:41:48  <X> I will :P
11:42:02  <X> anyways, it wants rpmlib (from the rpm package), but the rpm package I have installed provides librpm
11:42:15  <X> now, this probably isn't the right place to ask for help
11:42:20  <X> since it wasn't packaged by you
11:42:29  <hylje> consider rolling your own (read: compile)
11:42:32  <ln> who was it packaged by, and for what distribution?
11:42:50  <X>
11:42:57  <X> that's the one I sude
11:42:59  <X> *used
11:43:50  <X> just curious, is there no precompiled bunch of files in-a-zip I could download?
11:44:11  <Ammler> X: the packer is not known here
11:44:15  <SpComb> aren't those called "debs" or "rpms"?
11:45:03  <X> true, if they have dependencies
11:45:11  <peter1138> there's no binary tarball, no
11:45:11  <Ammler> X: but the package should work fine, I have installed it too, the i586
11:45:19  <X> right
11:45:24  <X> ill give that a try
11:45:33  * Brianetta doesn't play because he's broken his compiler
11:46:08  <Brianetta> Hopefully the new Ubuntu will fix it.  I have libc from the new one, and binutils from the old.  All to get my Creative Zen working...
11:46:22  <X> :)
11:46:24  <peter1138> hardy heron includes 0.6.0 anyway :)
11:46:30  <SpComb> "includes"?
11:46:41  <peter1138> as in "apt-get install openttd"
11:46:50  <Brianetta> That's not useful, since I'm so heavily invested in the SVN folder I already have
11:46:53  <SpComb> but not "Applications -> Games -> OpenTTD" :(
11:46:53  <X> I started playing with a couple of friends yesterday and we would like to experiment with longer games on a persistent server
11:47:01  <Ammler> in openSUSE it's zypper in openttd :-)
11:47:12  <Brianetta> Newbuntu: 2 days
11:47:18  <X> \o/ :D
11:47:36  <X> sadly firefox still loves to freeze when viewing lots of flash
11:47:45  <Tefad> not really its fault i think
11:47:46  <hylje> flash likes to freeze
11:47:49  <Tefad> ^
11:48:11  <X> it also doesnt seem to like javascripted fade ins and outs
11:48:23  <SpComb> the firefox on the n810 likes to crash at random
11:48:29  <SpComb> e.g. yesterday when loading
11:48:41  <Ammler> I think FF runs better on win then lin
11:48:53  <hylje> SpComb: it became depressed because it realized it couldn't have a soul
11:49:07  <X> Ammler, agreed
11:49:25  <Brianetta> How can it run better?
11:49:28  <Ammler> I prefer Opera...
11:49:38  <Brianetta> I've never seen it do anything sub-optimal on Linux
11:50:40  <SpComb> I've had issues on both
11:51:01  <Brianetta> Can't say I've had any issues with Windows software for years
11:51:07  <Brianetta> None at all
11:51:21  <Ammler> :-)
11:51:39  <SpComb> like when I tried to tank up a large number of pages of reading during a car trip
11:51:40  <planetmaker> :P
11:52:07  <SpComb> couldn't restart firefox either as I would loose the pages, so I had to just wait for it to spend half a minute agonizingly changing tabs
11:52:59  <teeg> firefox can remember what you had
11:53:06  <ln> SpComb: "lose" with one 'o'. (English only)
11:53:30  <teeg> I've fixed firefox on windows many a time by brutally killing it from taskmanager because it uses 50% CPU
11:53:52  <Brianetta> ln: Unless he means to lose, as in to loose an arrow...
11:54:05  * Brianetta pictures the pages twanging away
11:54:19  <Brianetta> teeg: Do you have a dual core machine?
11:54:22  <teeg> yep
11:54:27  <Brianetta> teeg: It wasn't using 50%
11:54:30  <Brianetta> It was using all
11:54:36  <teeg> all of one core, yes
11:54:58  <X> so, transport empire is progressing?
11:55:05  <Brianetta> who empire?
11:55:09  <teeg> if it'd been properly multithreaded, it would've used all of both cores
11:55:36  <SpComb> ln: it was a highly sophisticated metaphor for the pages "slipping" out of memory, designed to trick people into correcting my spelling
11:56:10  <Roest> dont have to trick ln into it
11:56:55  * Brianetta looses an arrow at SpComb's escaping pages
11:57:31  <Brianetta> Thwip! thunk-dukkadikkadik
11:57:33  <X> ah... so even if I want to only run a server I need the deluxe stuff
11:57:38  <X> from the cd
11:57:44  * teeg cries havoc and lets slip the pages of war?
11:57:48  <Brianetta> X: You need the game, yes
11:58:00  <Brianetta> The sprites are essential even if they're not being displayed
11:58:49  <Roest> but then, why would you want to run a server if you never gonna play?
11:59:05  <X> Can I just slap the .GRF files into /usr/share/games/openttd?
11:59:25  <Brianetta> Roest: You might not want to pl,ay *right* *Now*
11:59:38  <Brianetta> X: no
11:59:48  <Ammler> X, if you like them available for all users, else I would suggest ~/.openttd/data/
11:59:51  <teeg> Roest: I started an ottd server back in 2007
12:00:03  <teeg> it's still running, but it stopped responding a few months ago
12:00:14  <X> Right-o, than yous!
12:00:28  * Brianetta runs a server but then kills it when people page him too much
12:00:48  <X> *thank
12:00:55  <Brianetta> I don't have the kind of free time I had when I started it up.
12:00:59  <X> it's a dedicated server
12:01:09  <X> as in, headless
12:01:11  <teeg> actually, the most annoying part of running a server for that long a time is when cities mushroom outwards to look like huge circular blobs
12:01:44  <Roest> btw talking about firefox, seen this yet?
12:01:47  <hylje> cities could indeed enjoy some love :-)
12:02:31  <Ammler> feeg: swich off road building by towns and build them self how you like the city grow...
12:02:45  <Roest> teeg: that's why i made that patch, now cities look like smaller circular blobs
12:03:09  <Brianetta> Spacetime's web page took too long to load.  Their loss.
12:03:21  <Roest> your loss
12:03:22  <teeg> friend of mine and me did add a patch to limit the population of cities, but switching off road building by towns would work
12:03:27  <Brianetta> Roest: hardly.
12:03:30  <Ammler> Brianetta: so your standard is death now?
12:03:33  <teeg> what? too long?
12:03:40  <Brianetta> Ammler: It's run one 0.6 game so far
12:03:41  <Roest> you on dial up?
12:03:41  <teeg> it took a few seconds at the most here
12:03:44  <Brianetta> so not 100% death
12:03:50  <Brianetta> but it's currently comatose
12:03:58  <Brianetta> Perhaps after I've finished moving house, etc
12:04:00  *** lolEee [~lolman@] has joined #openttd
12:04:04  <Ammler> it was the best noncoop server around
12:04:06  <Kloopy> So towns favour building next to roads already built around their existing buildings rather than makign new roads?
12:04:24  <Brianetta> I know it was
12:04:35  <Ammler> :-£)
12:05:14  <Roest> kloopy i'd say yes, i'm about 80% sure
12:05:14  <teeg> hm. turning off roadbuilding almost makes it into a sort of sim city where you can influence how cities grow as well. damn. now I'm getting ideas for that as well :|
12:05:23  <Ammler> Is there an other regular copete server with admin support?
12:05:29  <Brianetta> No.
12:05:44  <Brianetta> The community just isn't geared that way
12:05:49  <Brianetta> Admins aren't required
12:05:59  <Brianetta> Those servers which are permanent are also unattended.
12:06:17  <Ammler> thats why I used to play on your server before coop
12:06:28  <Kloopy> Roest: I'd say I'm about the same % sure. But I'd like to know, because then at the start of a game you could build next to a town and build roads right round your station so that your station is in the middle of the city. Also, you then own all the road and can mess up competitors using road vehicles in the city by placing bad one way signs.
12:06:35  <Brianetta> I tried getting an admin team together
12:06:43  <Ammler> and the one from poland or somewhere like that
12:06:50  <Brianetta> I tried getting people to submit scenarios
12:07:16  <Brianetta> Celestar wanted to jointly run his server, but it turned out he wanted me to run his server
12:07:40  <Brianetta> There's no server admin community, so it just doesn't feel worth it.
12:07:40  <peter1138> copete server?
12:07:54  <Ammler> peter1138: well, the usual ones
12:07:58  <Brianetta> I get no feedback, and I get no satisfaction.
12:08:03  <peter1138> copete?
12:08:10  <Ammler> competition
12:08:11  <Brianetta> competetive
12:08:17  <Ammler> or so :-)
12:09:02  <peter1138> oh
12:09:12  <peter1138> all of them that aren't cooperative then
12:09:22  <Brianetta> (:
12:10:23  <Ammler> currently coop servers are the only server, benear Brianetta's standard (was) and with active admin support.
12:10:30  <Ammler> as far as I know.
12:10:32  <peter1138> really?
12:10:39  <Ammler> maybe yours
12:10:41  * peter1138 will pop onto his server if necessary
12:10:44  <peter1138> but it's never necessary
12:10:56  <hylje> but interpeter is a dev, not an admin...
12:11:58  <Ammler> if you join a server and see half map terraformed to water level or something like that, its a typical adminless server.
12:12:24  <peter1138> i guess i solve that by having hard to find grfs :p
12:12:31  <X> Aren't higher res sprite replacements being worked on?
12:14:36  <Ammler> X keyword is "32bpp", you will find a lot infos about that in wiki and forums
12:15:10  <X> :) but nothing complete/worthy replacements of the current default ones
12:15:11  <Rubidium> it's only that people still do not realise that 32bpp does NOT mean bigger sprites and 'proper' scaling of vehicles
12:15:28  <X> more pixels, no?
12:15:38  <Ammler> X: you should take a look on OpenGFX too, maybe.
12:16:00  <Roest> Rubidium: are 32bpp sprites bigger?
12:16:04  * Roest ducks
12:17:01  <Rubidium> Roest: yes, by about 4 times assuming the GRF codec compresses with exactly the same compression ratio as PNG
12:17:36  <X> groovy
12:17:40  <Roest> cool, i guess that allows 5 more zoomlevels
12:17:48  <hylje> no
12:17:50  <Ammler> :-)
12:17:59  <hylje> 32bpp is 4x the pixel depth to 8bpp
12:18:06  <hylje> the sizes are the same for now
12:18:26  <Rubidium> I'm talking about the file size, not the width/height
12:18:49  <Ammler>
12:18:58  <Tefad> how are company colors handled in 32bit png?
12:19:13  <Rubidium> Tefad: read the docs
12:19:41  <Tefad> point me in the right direction
12:19:50  <Rubidium> Ammler: that's with some patch that won't get into trunk in it's current form
12:20:01  <Ammler> yeah, I know
12:20:02  <Rubidium> or rather, will never make it into trunk
12:20:15  <Ammler> ah, say never never
12:20:42  <Rubidium> so it's: NewGRFs or 32bpp
12:20:46  <Tefad> looks kinda spiffy
12:20:49  <Rubidium> make the choice quite easy
12:20:54  <Tefad> choice?
12:21:00  <Tefad> hmm k
12:21:30  <Rubidium> well, it's either 'zoomed in 32bpp' graphics or NewGRF as they cannot work together without glitches
12:22:08  <Tefad> depends on how the engine works
12:22:41  <peter1138> we can zoom in 8bpp graphics too
12:22:52  <Ammler> of course, but somehow, it neat to see the details on the 32bpp Graphics
12:23:01  <Roest> damn that pic looks nice
12:23:05  <Ammler> like the fence on the pic
12:23:45  <peter1138> if i did 8bpp zooming it would not interpolate like that
12:24:22  <Roest> Rubidium: could please take that 'never' statement back, we'll pretend we never heard it :)
12:25:51  <Ammler> Roest: I guess, there will never be enough graphics for that
12:26:12  <Ammler> its a really huge work they did, only for one engine and the waggons.
12:26:15  <peter1138> what never?
12:26:28  <Ammler> :-)
12:27:04  <peter1138> i'd like a "double size" mode for 8bpp, like windows used to have
12:27:22  <peter1138> i can just do that by using a lower screen resolution though
12:27:39  <Tefad> yeah, but who's going to multitask with weird screen res
12:27:51  <Tefad> or switch res on an LCD
12:27:57  <peter1138> me
12:28:08  <Tefad> ew.
12:28:12  <peter1138> i can't use my laptop's screen at native resolution
12:28:17  <Tefad> why not?
12:28:24  <peter1138> because it's 1400x1050 and 15"
12:28:30  <Tefad> sounds awesome : )
12:28:36  <peter1138> it's horrible
12:28:40  <peter1138> i use it at 1024x768
12:28:43  <Tefad> then your OS fails
12:28:44  <Roest> i'm getting the impression all that stuff in the graphics sub forum is more less just for fun
12:28:53  <peter1138> no, my eyes fail
12:29:07  <Tefad> you should be able to match the DPI properly
12:29:24  <peter1138> doesn't matter, it's the pixel size itself that causes issues
12:29:39  <Tefad> unless you're specifically talking about raster-based games like ottd here ; )
12:29:42  <peter1138> (how old are you?)
12:30:09  <Tefad> i am 25, i've used 15.1" screen before at 1600x1200 and thought it was the best thing ever
12:30:22  <peter1138> ahh, a few years yet
12:30:30  <peter1138> i used to use a 17" CRT at 1600x1200, yes
12:30:31  <Tefad> i'm near sighted
12:30:40  <Tefad> CRTs are too fuzzy for that : \
12:30:42  <peter1138> lucky... your eyes will get better
12:30:47  <Tefad> ehh
12:30:48  <peter1138> not a decent CRT
12:30:54  <Tefad> my lenses will just harden
12:31:02  <Tefad> not really get better
12:31:47  <Tefad> also analog doesn't really have decent bandwidth for 1600x1200 at proper refresh rates
12:31:55  <Tefad> artifacts show up, like ghosting
12:32:38  <Tefad> with 1280x1024 85Hz i see some ghosting and other problems
12:32:58  <Brianetta> I have astygmatism
12:33:03  <Rubidium> just use a 1920x1200 LCD ;)
12:33:03  <Tefad> sucks
12:33:18  <Brianetta> Without glasses, no monitor is or can be clear, no matter how big, small, near or far.
12:33:28  <Tefad> i can't stand modern LCDs
12:33:33  <Tefad> they flicker too much : \
12:33:47  <teeg> what?
12:33:52  <Tefad> yes LCDs refresh
12:33:59  <Tefad> i'm tired of people acting shocked when i say this
12:34:04  <teeg> I only see flickering when it's cold
12:34:16  <Tefad> that's the tube probably, different part
12:34:21  <Ammler> well, if you set refresh rate over 60Hz
12:34:34  <teeg> LCDs don't do >60hz do they?
12:34:38  <Tefad> i'm not talking input signal refresh rates
12:35:04  <teeg> I guess you're one of those who see the difference between 25hz film and 50hz film
12:35:28  <Tefad> no idea what you just said
12:35:42  <Tefad> film runs at 24fps, and is usually played back with double frames for 48fps
12:35:43  <teeg> I meant fps, not hz
12:36:02  <Ammler> from ottd itself?
12:36:31  <teeg> ah, I thought it was 25, but okay. a friend of mine claims he sees the difference in smoothness between 25/50/100fps film (his words on the numbers)
12:37:13  <teeg> and he also claims he can see his LCD flickering from time to time, whereas I can't for the life of me see it when he claims he's seeing it
12:37:37  <Tefad> i'm not entirely correct
12:37:41  <peter1138> Tefad: it's not refresh, it's dithering
12:37:48  <Tefad> not dithering either
12:37:48  <peter1138> == cheap LCD
12:37:53  <Celestar> Brianetta: :)
12:37:55  <peter1138> it flickers
12:37:55  <Tefad> it's the inversion pattern of the LCD itself
12:38:00  <Tefad> LCD pixels do not run on DC
12:38:13  <Tefad> their voltage has to be flipped or they get destroyed
12:38:53  <Tefad> inversion techniques: alternate line, double alternate line, alternate pixel, alternate sub-pixel, full frame.
12:39:06  <Tefad> and variations.
12:39:09  <peter1138> flicker is usually something you spot in your peripheral vision
12:39:16  <Tefad> the altnerate line looks like interlacing : D

12:39:38  <peter1138> Tefad: hmm, i think i see that on some phone screens... although that may not LCDs
12:39:38  <Tefad> which is really annoying when i was younger, i kept telling people their screens were interlaced when they were LCDs. they thought i was nuts.
12:39:54  <Tefad> yup, it's the inversion pattern you're noticing

12:40:22  <Tefad> i've yet to see a modern phone without LCD
12:40:30  <Tefad> early phones had segment LED screens for great fun
12:40:37  <peter1138> OLED? heh
12:40:52  <Tefad> don't think OLED has hit cellphones yet, though i could be mistaken.
12:41:01  *** Zahl [] has joined #openttd
12:41:17  <Tefad> some phones LCDs are oriented sideways
12:41:30  <Tefad> vertical bar interlace is weird to look at
12:41:50  <Tefad> anyway, my comment about film being 48fps isn't quite right
12:42:08  <Tefad> for whatever reason, they flash the flim twice without advancing it
12:42:30  <Tefad> somehow this is better than flashing it for a long time with short flickers.
12:42:33  <peter1138> to reduce flicker...
12:42:57  <peter1138> yes, it keeps everything simpler, heh
12:43:09  <Tefad> simpler? meh
12:43:17  <Tefad> they have to use brighter bulbs

12:43:44  <Tefad> analog film, meh ; )
12:44:20  <Tefad> it'll be a while before digital film catches up to 70mm quality though

12:49:57  <Tefad> also analog film is apparently logarithmic, while CCDs are linear (light response)
12:50:04  <Tefad> no. the "K" stands for width
12:50:18  <Tefad> linear instead of surface
12:50:19  * Rubidium wonders what 4K means ;)
12:50:28  <Tefad> it's even referenced in that link you gave me.
12:50:36  <Rubidium> is it 4096, 3656 or 3996
12:50:50  <peter1138> so 10MP
12:50:53  <Tefad> ah, they call it 8K
12:50:57  <Tefad> the 7680
12:51:10  <Tefad> but 4K is current standard
12:51:13  <Tefad> 2K is older digital standard
12:51:17  <Tefad> it's very similar to HDTV

12:51:54  <peter1138> "Just but an idea, but anyone ever thought of subways in OTTD?"
12:51:55  <peter1138> ^ lol
12:52:23  <teeg> sigh
12:52:26  <teeg> heh
12:53:03  <teeg> I told one of my friends about my rewrite of ottd, and the first thing he thought of was subways, bendy tunnels, stoplights on bridges etc
12:53:58  <teeg> all valid features which I want to see in ottd myself, but I'm guessing making a subway mode would be slightly annoying. :P
12:54:07  <Roest> peter1138: only 273 posts containing the word subways, it might not have been asked before
12:54:14  <Celestar> teeg: it's not. I made one and it worked quite well
12:54:24  <teeg> oh?
12:54:27  <Celestar> teeg: the underlying game mechanics ... that's another question :)
12:54:31  <Tefad> did it mesh well?
12:54:33  <teeg> hehe
12:55:09  <teeg> is that patch publically available? I might try to look at it when I get the new core fleshed out a bit more
12:55:27  <Celestar> it is in svn
12:55:32  <Celestar> somewhere
12:55:36  <teeg> heh ok

13:03:44  <teeg> heh, that reminds me of the guys who "patched" ottd to allow more than 15 (or 16 depending on how you look at it) height levels for the tiles. it's no wonder they got weird results when they exceeded level 15, given that tiles only allow for 3 bits for height, the rest is type.
13:04:05  <peter1138> heh
13:06:18  <Roest> but then i'd wonder how they get to 15 with 3 bits already
13:06:48  <peter1138> indeed, it's 4 bits

13:41:34  <teeg> heh. locomotion was weird. bad pathfinding code and I really did not like the UI for laying tracks/roads etc.
13:41:58  <dragonhorseboy> want know what I think the real problem was
13:41:59  <mrfrenzy> what's the fun of building a railway when you can
13:42:04  <mrfrenzy> 't see the trais running?
13:42:38  <dragonhorseboy> rollercoaster tycoon? sure having to lay each tile manually was fine since almost all the times it was always curving or the so in some way ... but try reuse the same gui for a vehicle tycoon game? ughh had someone been drinking too much?
13:42:43  <dragonhorseboy> you know what I mean there teeg?
13:42:48  <Belugas> dragonhorseboy, who said that we want it?  I find it strange this desire, this craving, this aboslute NEED to have everything that other games have.
13:43:49  <dragonhorseboy>'s one paluseable hint: the trains are above ground but near major cities they're gone from view being underground heading to nearby station underneath the city :)
13:44:46  <Gekz> Belugas: erm, not many other games have subways
13:44:55  <Gekz> I'd like to have subways in one form or another in openttd
13:45:01  <dragonhorseboy> but for me...since I never really cared much for cities (always rather like small towns for as long as there's enough buildings to accept goods) I wouldn't want to bother with more passenger-only features
13:45:20  <teeg> Belugas: if if the cities had been bigger than they are now, and you wanted to make an inner-city system with proper passenger AI so each city would be its own ecosystem, then it could be a nice feature, but to be honest I believe trams solve that problem, along with the new bus stations
13:45:52  <Gekz> i'm not fond of trams.
13:45:55  <teeg> (and yes, inner-city system with proper passenger ai would eat a lot of cpu, so do not take me wrong, I'm not saying that would be a good direction for ottd. :P)
13:46:00  <Belugas> indeed, teeg
13:46:27  <Brianetta> Trams can't run on standard gauge rail, which is a shame.  Most modern trams can.
13:46:34  <dragonhorseboy> gekz...yeah I kinda have to agree..I've tried many of the downloadable different ones and still don't see one that quite works for me yet
13:46:48  <Gekz> trams in general are old hat.
13:47:05  <Gekz> you get to 2050 yet you lack the ability to stick a train underground?
13:47:06  <Gekz> lol
13:47:08  <mrfrenzy> dragonhorseboy: yeah that's true, subway is only really used in cities
13:47:21  <Gekz> openttd made cities grow massively
13:47:25  <teeg> but I CAN see an undergrond mode for making tunnels would be beneficial, since there are times when I'd just like to offset the tunnel one block without having to terraform. or just do a 90 degree turn
13:47:43  <dragonhorseboy> mrfrenzy...and then there are only a selective few major ones that don't even have any above-ground routes at all (the one in Montreal comes to mind)
13:47:53  <Gekz> lol
13:47:57  <Gekz> Australia has no subway
13:48:09  <Kloopy> Australia doesn't need one, it's so big.
13:48:12  <Gekz> just various small tunnels
13:48:20  <Gekz> and its not densely populated
13:48:21  <Gekz> lol
13:48:22  <dragonhorseboy> least thankgod the newer openttd has option to cull that absurb city growth :p
13:48:34  <dragonhorseboy> I have it set to 'slow' and '1 in 4 cities' :)
13:48:42  <Gekz> I think openttd needs to have an option called "Shut the goddamn towns up"
13:48:48  <Gekz> so you can destroy what you want
13:48:51  <dragonhorseboy> not quite the same as ttdp but at least finally its more of my type
13:48:53  <Gekz> without them bitching every 5 minutes
13:49:04  <teeg> heh. ottd godmode? :P
13:49:11  <Gekz> not quite
13:49:21  <Gekz> I just want to be able to destroy 6 buildings without the bitches talking
13:49:31  <Gekz> or at least be able to purchase a building permit from the town
13:49:36  <Gekz> for ,000,000 or something
13:49:41  <Gekz> for a month of unlimited destruction
13:49:55  <Gekz> with a limit of dropping the population below 500
13:50:04  <Gekz> then it says "No dice."
13:50:07  <Gekz> that's what I'd like.
13:50:55  <Roest> it'd probably already help to remove the fail chance from "bribe the local authorities"
13:51:04  <Roest> which should be easy
13:51:11  <Gekz> I never bribe them
13:51:12  <Gekz> it sucks
13:51:12  <teeg> personally I'd like to be able to structure the city so that busses or trams moved people around in town, subways could go to misc train stations or airplane stations, and trains and planes would take care of intercontinental travel
13:51:32  <dragonhorseboy> either way gekz...
13:51:41  <dragonhorseboy> the reason I haven't bothered with tram grfs is for two reasons...
13:52:26  *** elmex [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
13:52:30  <dragonhorseboy> 1. nothing with good passenger capacity + top speed to go with it  2. where's at least some goods/food capacity in some of the grfs? (more freight types optional)
13:53:03  <Gekz> dragonhorseboy: theres a modern tram grf
13:53:03  <dragonhorseboy> eg 4LV already can give me a 90+km/h bus with more than 70 passenger capacity in it.. but nearby no trams match that yet
13:53:08  <Gekz> could do with some work, but its pretty good
13:53:33  <dragonhorseboy> (neverminding 120km/h with 120 [or was it 130?] passenger capacity :p)
13:53:36  <peter1138> 4LV's stats do not suit the game very well
13:53:44  <dragonhorseboy> peter...well they suit me well tho
13:53:54  <peter1138> otoh, tram sets seem to have incredibly low capacity and speed
13:54:42  <dragonhorseboy> peter..I mean..whats the point of trying to stuff more than ten 27-passenger trams into one single stop when just two 120-passenger buses do it much cheaper ;)
13:54:53  <dragonhorseboy> peter...yeah you're right about that
13:55:01  <peter1138> that's why multistop exists
13:55:10  <dragonhorseboy> peter...there isn't much space for extra stops ^-^
13:55:19  <peter1138> and that's why 4LV does not suit the game... the capacities are *too high*
13:55:31  <peter1138> there's always space for drivethrough stops
13:55:45  <teeg> cities are a bit small for proper trams I think, until they become huge circular blobs that is... or you make them yourself
13:55:56  <dragonhorseboy> peter...well several of my towns always have more than 200 passengers waiting at certain barely-fitted-in-there single station stop
13:56:11  <Gekz> teeg: or you nuke parts of the town
13:56:15  <Gekz> teeg: do you like money?
13:56:53  <teeg> Gekz: personally? of course. in-game? sure, because it makes building easier, but other than that, my pet project is making a transportation system which works well more than anything else
13:57:08  <dragonhorseboy> (I should mention that I many times end up with towns built right on long slopes or around irregular shaped coastlines so there isn't even much space to get rails plowed in hence the dependancy on rv's
13:57:18  <Gekz> teeg: I'll give you  to make the patch I ranted about
13:57:19  <Gekz> lol
13:57:24  <dragonhorseboy> gekz...hehehe :)

13:58:17  <Gekz> Roest: the patch to allow you to purchase a building contract
13:59:22  <Roest> you know, that's probably easy to do
14:01:33  <Ammler> dragonhorseboy: you can buguse the hiroshima tramset
14:01:47  <Ammler> it has a tram with 450 pass cap
14:02:06  <dragonhorseboy> heh isn't that because its a 3-car one? ;)
14:02:15  <dragonhorseboy> (or was it 4? been some time I last looked at the website for that)
14:02:16  *** ben_goodger [] has joined #openttd
14:02:44  <Ammler> 3, it was meant to have 150 for the whole tram, not per part of it.
14:03:25  <dragonhorseboy> ah
14:03:25  *** dR3x4cK [] has joined #openttd
14:03:28  <Ammler> its something called mit Dortmund, iirc
14:03:31  <dragonhorseboy> hmm well what speed was it again if you recall?
14:04:03  <Ammler> not that fast but that shouldn't matter :-)
14:04:26  <dragonhorseboy> ammler...heh well at least top 70km/h I hope? :p
14:05:52  <Ammler> possible from 60 upwards
14:06:01  <dragonhorseboy> hmm sounds fair
14:06:57  <Ammler> checked its 61
14:07:20  <Ammler> strange, there is another aTram (Greenmover) which hasn't that bug
14:08:05  <dragonhorseboy> want to know what tram I'll seriously like to finally see coded?
14:08:24  *** fran [] has joined #openttd
14:08:44  <Ammler> isn't it already in moderntrams?
14:09:18  <Eddi|zuHause2> <Brianetta> Trams can't run on standard gauge rail, which is a shame.  Most modern trams can. <- the Nordhausen tram can use the narrow-gauge rails of the Harzquerbahn (with a secondary diesel engine)
14:09:53  <Ammler> same otherside, ng trains should be able to use tramtracks. :-)
14:10:34  <Celestar> I think Munichs tram runs on 1435mm
14:11:20  <dragonhorseboy> ammler here:
14:11:23  <dragonhorseboy> and I'm serious
14:11:31  <Sacro> Eddi|zuHause2: not in ttd :p
14:12:11  <dragonhorseboy> if I had any real clue on how to make new grf files I would have had made my own private grf for coaltram.grf but since I don't .. well... *sigh*
14:13:41  <Eddi|zuHause2> Leipzig's trams have a weird gauge

14:17:54  <Ammler> indeed
14:18:14  <Eddi|zuHause2> that's the main problem of the tramsets
14:18:20  <Eddi|zuHause2> the feature is very young
14:18:29  <Eddi|zuHause2> the good sets need time to brew
14:18:46  <Ammler> Hiroshim is still the best one :-)

14:19:10  <Eddi|zuHause2> i'd like trams i can relate to...

14:20:42  <ln> fortunately soon there will be a tram in the station signs.
14:22:20  <Eddi|zuHause2> 'Gotha' type in the '50s, 'T4' type in the '70s, MGT in the '90s

17:41:43  <yorick> the lastet version is somewath old, but if an archive doesn't extract, you might try to google for a new version of the tool used for it

19:58:05  <Roest> that's right
19:58:28  <Roest> but the window is initialized with a height of 14, so both commands should do the same
19:58:52  <Roest> but the resize is glitchy :)
19:59:10  <Lakie> Not really.
19:59:24  <Lakie> It just expects you give it the absoule new sizes.

20:50:30  <mynetdude> There are plenty of reading materials including the wiki on signals, OTTD, and so forth... what I'd like to point out though is the info about signals in OTTD on the wiki is a bit confusing everybody talks about "one way" "priority" etc.. OTTD only has a few signal types: exit, entry, combination, one way and double signals... I left because either A) I'm too dense to not read, which I did or B) you'd rather not help newbies
20:50:51  <mynetdude> Does anybody have tips on signals? what is all this PBS/YAPP stuff?
20:51:03  <peter1138> pbs/yapp is irrelevant
20:51:11  <Rubidium> PBS is not in the version you are using, so irrelevant
20:51:42  <Rubidium> priority can be made out of exit, entry and combination signals, but that's pretty complex to do
20:51:47  <peter1138> one-way shouldn't confuse anyone though
20:51:47  <mynetdude> I have the OTTD 0.6.0
20:51:59  <mynetdude> Rubidium indeed
20:52:14  <mynetdude> well in a sense I understand one ways... but not exactly
20:52:34  <mynetdude> obviously you wouldn't use a one way on a complex or dual direction junction
20:52:47  <peter1138> sure you would
20:52:59  <mynetdude> I would presume one ways are more appropriate for station sidings and sidings?
20:53:04  <ln> where are the station signs drawn?
20:53:21  <peter1138> one-ways are appropriate for dual-track lines
20:53:27  <mynetdude> peter1138 why? if you have a junction going 4-5 different ways... a one way signal won't work
20:53:44  <peter1138> neither will a two-way... you'll get blockages
20:53:57  <Rubidium> ln: viewport.cpp
20:54:06  <Roest> hmm alberth, not exactly sure about that, maybe there is no growth?

21:22:39  <mynetdude> I wasn't sure if it was smart enough :P
21:23:22  <Alberth> mynetdude: One of the problems is that we don't understand why the pictures are not clear to new players. Makes it kind of difficult to improve on them
21:25:22  <mynetdude> when you mean two way, are you implying that the signal is on both sides of a single track?
21:25:48  <mynetdude> meaning a signal facing each direction upon a single track
21:25:50  <Alberth> yes
21:26:19  <mynetdude> ah so I COULD use a one way signal to control which way trains go on a particular track?
21:26:54  <mynetdude> so if I wanted westbound only on the north track and eastbound on the south track I would need one way signals and places for them to switch when turning around

21:31:48  <dragonhorseboy> 80km/h sugar verus 120km/h food for example
21:32:18  <dragonhorseboy> makes it easier to lump traffics onto either because they have the traffic space to spare .. compared to if I had tried lump both onto a single line
21:32:28  *** TinoM [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
21:32:43  <Roest> mynetdude: get a build with yapp, then you need only one signal type
21:33:19  *** Chicago_Rail_Authority [] has joined #openttd
21:33:44  <Alberth> I find it more fun to keep them together, and then have a double track in both directions where they can jump between. I haven't yet quite mastered how to do that though. Needs much more practice time ;)
21:33:59  <dragonhorseboy> heh
21:34:58  <Alberth> I usually play with realistic speedup/drag(?), so trains with cargo are already much slower than without
21:36:23  <Alberth> Roest: Haven't noticed; was running a time table experiment with buses
21:37:14  <Roest> i havent understood timetables yet
21:38:23  <peter1138> Alberth: cargo weight affects "non-realistic" acceleration too
21:40:31  <Alberth> Ah, then it is another one.... ah, 'freight multiplier' set to 10
21:41:02  <Alberth> s/freight/weight/
21:42:28  *** KingJ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:43:13  <dragonhorseboy> alberth I never bothered with that
21:43:25  <dragonhorseboy> certain small engines seem to get too difficult to even use with it anywhere outside 1x ^-^
21:44:31  <Roest> you starting in 1920?
21:45:11  <dragonhorseboy> roest..nope
21:45:38  *** KingJ [] has joined #openttd
21:45:40  <Alberth> I like it in the sense that you need to compensate for it in the rail tracks, eg put a double track up a mountain. (probably because I place signals quite far away from each other, usualy at least 10-15 tiles)
21:47:49  <Roest> nice
21:47:59  <dragonhorseboy> roest...for example...
21:48:18  <Roest> gues you're not servicing a dual coal mine station with both at 1000+ a month
21:48:43  <dragonhorseboy> 90km/h @ 700hp @ 84kN @ introduced 1942
21:48:46  <Tefad> add more engines to compensate for weight
21:48:46  <Alberth> Roest: You mean the long yellow AI roads in the north?
21:48:53  <peter1138> i read that as 'dual core mine station' :o
21:48:59  <Tefad> haha
21:48:59  <dragonhorseboy> thats to show you an example...if the multiplier was 2x or more that railcar would barely even get past 50-60km/h at all which is not good
21:49:00  <Roest> the yellow rail track
21:49:25  <peter1138> dragonhorseboy: seems like you like the game easy... freight multiplier 1x, george's over capacitied 4LV...
21:49:31  <Roest> and the red airport south west
21:49:39  <Roest> far away from the town
21:49:51  <dragonhorseboy> peter..nope...I mean whats the use of purchasing the railmotor with just one single trailer if it can't even get at least 3/4 of its speed out? :p
21:49:57  <Roest> peter1138: i like the game easy too
21:50:02  <dragonhorseboy> the real ones actually hauled two trailers at 90km/h top
21:50:04  <mynetdude> back, was alittle busy
21:50:35  <peter1138> dragonhorseboy: non or 'realistic' acceleration?
21:50:37  <Roest> i create maps in the scenario editor and level them to one height, because i hat steps
21:50:45  <dragonhorseboy> this is what I find a bit ironic about trying to fit real trains into the game's physics
21:50:59  <dragonhorseboy> peter.. relastic (and in ttdp its set as 3333 for speed&handling)
21:51:01  <mynetdude> <<<< I'm having a problem figuring out what kind of signals to put here
21:51:36  <mynetdude> alittle hard to put realism in such an old game with basic stuff
21:51:38  <mynetdude> it seems
21:51:58  <Roest> omg he said old
21:52:12  <dragonhorseboy> roest..heh I noticed that too :p
21:52:26  <mynetdude> I did, whats wrong?
21:52:39  <mynetdude> though I LIKE the game :D
21:52:54  <mynetdude> locomotion seems like another game I'd like too
21:52:55  <Roest> probably some ninjas on the way to your house by now
21:53:06  <peter1138> you've got double-track so use one-ways
21:53:10  <mynetdude> haha Roest my brother is one, he'll defend me :D
21:53:48  <mynetdude> so two ways are better for single track/sidings
21:54:41  <Roest> nice choice for company color btw, you like pink?
21:54:46  <mynetdude> even though I have double track, what if I have say 2 trains
21:54:56  <mynetdude> Roest no, thats what the game gave me so I'm just using the color
21:55:01  <mynetdude> (yes I know it can be changed)
21:55:08  <mynetdude> but I have restarted like 25 times
21:55:15  <Roest> game knows you
21:55:20  <mynetdude> hah
21:55:40  <mynetdude> well anyway... say I have three trains
21:56:10  *** Nite [] has joined #openttd
21:56:13  <mynetdude> each station has two platforms, if I use one ways and the track he is on already has a train in, then I will want that train to pick the free platform
21:56:36  <mynetdude> so I would have to allow the train to switch, so I suppose this is where the entry/exit signals come into play?
21:56:39  <Nite> anyone having brutal desync problems with 606 ?
21:56:46  <Alberth> you solve that locally at the station
21:56:52  <Nite> ups 060
21:57:21  <mynetdude> Alberth how?
21:57:41  <Roest> Nite: vanilla 0.6.0?
21:57:52  <mynetdude> one way signals keep trains going in one direction per track
21:57:53  <Alberth>
21:58:19  <Alberth> bottom line is an ingoing line, top one is outgoing
21:58:22  <Roest> mynetdude: the wiki has some articles for station entrances and junctions
21:58:25  <peter1138> mynetdude:
21:58:28  <Roest> it's a pretty good read
21:58:38  <Nite> no - newgrf stuffed 060
21:58:39  <peter1138> (yes, i moved some track)
21:58:48  <mynetdude> no pic there
21:59:29  <Roest> peter1138: you're playing with an awful resolution
21:59:34  <Nite> same are always: ukrs & planeset
21:59:57  <dragonhorseboy> roest..doesn't look like it to me
22:00:25  <mynetdude> peter1138 wow you're fast, and you're good at manipulating what I just created
22:00:47  <Alberth> years and years of training :)
22:00:51  <Roest> Nite: 0.6.0 is pretty stable, must be something with your net config
22:01:00  <mynetdude> I understand that clearly a small X junction at the station
22:01:49  <Roest> mynetdude:
22:01:56  <Nite> well it works smooth vanilla so i think its more a newgrf problem - i didnt change my connection
22:02:09  <Alberth> I'd also connect both incoming lines together and both outgoing lines together
22:02:13  <Nite> and it was running very well on 053
22:02:42  * dragonhorseboy has had no clue wherever the cfg file even is ever since like 0.5.3 or so too :/
22:02:58  <peter1138> probably because 0.5.3 doesn't support a lot of the stuff that 0.6.0 does
22:02:58  <dragonhorseboy> at least thankgod most of the network and grf items can be set from in-game menus
22:03:36  <Roest> Nite: i'm a grf and patch whore myself and dont experience desyncs, maybe just one or two a night
22:03:51  <Alberth> mynetdude: ie remove the bottom bridge and connect both lines together
22:04:27  <Nite> i expierience desiyn ond "peter's ukrs" as sooon as the game unpauses - i can watch paused game as spectator.
22:04:46  * Sacro cuddles Bjarni tightly

22:06:33  <Nite> (same fx on "brienettas" which is down now)
22:06:45  <Roest> oh it's probably the driving on the wrong side thing
22:06:59  <Sacro> Roest: he usually does
22:07:07  <dragonhorseboy> hmm which of just one curious station question
22:07:20  <dragonhorseboy> how many of you have through platforms that can serve traffic in both directions?
22:08:00  <Nite> i use them but dunno in which game u are anyways
22:08:36  <Roest> my city stations are usually terminus and the industry stations one way roro
22:09:00  <dragonhorseboy> I always wish I could show these station layouts to some nice people but the problem is either 1. they're not in game by then or 2. is in some silly server configuration that wouldn't let me traffic the station the way I want to
22:09:02  <mynetdude> hey thanks for the help all
22:09:05  <dragonhorseboy> go figure :p
22:09:27  <Nite> which game are u in now? (ill join)
22:09:43  <Nite> (if 060)
22:09:57  <Roest> i never have have a client that matches any of these server revs
22:10:08  <mynetdude> Alberth, how do you mean remove the bridge? I tried that and couldn't do it due to the akward slope
22:10:09  *** Osai is now known as Osai^zZz
22:10:17  <dragonhorseboy> none actually...just waiting for someone to come online probably about a hour later for us to resume the private game we've been playing tho
22:10:45  <Nite> would come online to watch some nice stations.
22:11:12  <dragonhorseboy> nite heh well dunno about the stations but if you can grab two grfs I guess I could let you see the paused game :p
22:12:22  <mynetdude> Nite watching doesn't sound like a bad idea
22:12:46  <mynetdude> dragonhorseboy you have to have the grfs to see the custom stuff?
22:12:56  <mynetdude> even if you are just watching, the game doesn't download it?
22:13:34  <mynetdude> hey Alberth, you still around? :)
22:14:14  <Nite> could well be i already have those newgrfs - but without server name no game.
22:14:30  <Roest> you could also download some savegames from the ottdcoop guys, they are pretty educating
22:14:36  <Alberth> more or less, should go to bed
22:15:08  <Alberth> not sure I understand that you cannot remove the bridge
22:15:32  <Sacro> DON'T REMOVE THE BRIDGE ><
22:15:37  <Sacro> the islands will drift apart
22:15:52  <mynetdude> Nite well I realize that, but what I am asking is to see the custom grfs one must have it even if it is hosted by someone else?
22:16:15  <mynetdude> Alberth sure I can remove the bridge, but the terrain does not permit easy integration with the lines
22:16:28  <Roest> sacro don't worry there's still the anchor
22:16:40  <mynetdude> lol Roest we talking about ships now? :D
22:17:03  <Nite> afaik you must dl all your newgrfs by hand.
22:17:10  <mynetdude> though I do like the C turn going from the bridge
22:17:10  <De_Ghosty> you guys know who john coulton is right?
22:17:26  <mynetdude> Nite alright cool, ty :)
22:17:38  <Nite> but you can have a look which ones are used on a server.
22:18:04  <mynetdude> yeah you go to the website I think and you can see what the servers are using
22:18:15  <Nite> you can see it ingame
22:18:23  <Roest> get that packages and chances are you will have all grfs needed
22:18:26  <mynetdude> even better
22:18:52  <mynetdude> I got some GRFs just haven't even started installing them yet
22:19:06  <Nite> the "newgrf setting" button to the right
22:19:41  <Alberth> mynetdude: couldn't you make a 45 turn two tiles from the station, and go down-hill at the side?
22:19:44  <Nite> you are more copying them than installing.
22:20:03  <mynetdude> so this openttdcoop package has everything?
22:20:11  <Nite> any game for me to join?
22:20:22  <Nite> guess os for teh coop server.
22:20:54  *** sickie88 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]

22:21:01  <mynetdude> well it will but not correctly
22:21:24  <De_Ghosty> damn
22:21:25  <Alberth> mynetdude: everything is at grfcrawler (
22:21:31  <De_Ghosty> when do we get diagonal roads?
22:21:38  <Roest> not everything :P
22:21:47  <mynetdude> oh yeah I went there grfcrawler...
22:22:01  <mynetdude> they had some great stuff there
22:22:17  <mynetdude> but whats the difference between openttdcoop vs the ones at grfcrawler?
22:22:37  <Patrick`_> De_Ghosty: screw them, I want diagonal bridges
22:22:51  <Patrick`_> and diagonal rails traversing a linear slope
22:22:54  <mynetdude> Patrick`_ actually diagnal bridges could come in handy
22:23:06  <Patrick`_> in fact, climbing an incline at an angle is how it's done in real life
22:23:14  <Roest> the coop packages has everything you need in one big package, while at grf crawler you have have to singlehandly download oneby one
22:23:18  <Alberth> just turn all your rail tracks 45 degrees :P
22:23:20  <Nite> i think this whole newgrf thing is ridicioulous anyways ...
22:23:24  <mynetdude> Patrick`_ what do u mean?
22:23:40  <Nite> why all this complicated serching by hand ...
22:24:02  <mynetdude> Roest but didn't you just say coop doesn't have everything?
22:24:17  <Roest> no i didnt
22:24:29  <Roest> well they dont have everything, that's for sure
22:24:31  *** KritiK [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:24:37  <Nite> newgrfs just being uploaded to a server where they are distributed ingame will be great.
22:24:37  <Roest> but they have enough
22:24:38  *** KritiK_ is now known as KritiK
22:24:38  <mynetdude> oh ok
22:24:55  <dragonhorseboy> sorry was afk...
22:25:03  <mynetdude> Nite kinda like built in grf sharing within the game?
22:25:17  <mynetdude> ok time for me to see if I can do these signals
22:25:21  <dragonhorseboy> here's why I don't like many of the newgrf servers -- where the hell do I even download older grfs when the server doesn't have its own grf pack?
22:25:32  <Nite> coop has every newgrf for the coopserver, isnt that obvious?
22:25:37  <Patrick`_> the map that you load off a server is bigger than most grfs
22:25:44  <dragonhorseboy> (not even in version 5 through 7 of the openttd grfpack neither)
22:25:47  <Patrick`_> so I don't see why
22:26:06  <mynetdude> well I'll just start over... I've been doing just that the last 3 days
22:26:07  <Roest> the grfs i use are still 10+ MB zipped
22:26:15  <Nite> yeah kind of - like map downloading but with newgrfs
22:26:22  <Alberth> you only have to distribute the URL of a grf ingame
22:26:35  <Nite> ... still i know a restart is needd to activate them.
22:26:51  <peter1138> restart?
22:26:56  <mynetdude> Nite which I am sure it could do on its own and then reconnect when done?
22:27:04  <Nite> no url would be needed
22:27:04  <mynetdude> peter1138 no not the PC, the game
22:27:12  <peter1138> why restart?
22:27:20  <mynetdude> peter1138 so the GRF can work?
22:27:31  <peter1138> that needs no restart
22:27:38  * mynetdude doesn't know
22:27:41  <Nite> there is no url needed for maps either ...
22:28:08  <Nite> yust new contetn downloaded automatically is a great gamefeature in so many games ... bla bla
22:28:21  <Alberth> just click away the warnings that loading grf midgame may crash the game :P
22:29:17  <mynetdude> in your opinion, which is better when starting out? single track or double track?
22:29:18  <Rubidium> Nite: yeah... and George/Pikka making their NewGRFs not work in OpenTTD because the 'great gamefeature' is an even greater gamefeature, I guess
22:29:29  <Nite> yeah but you have to have the newgrfs first.
22:29:44  <Sacro> mynetdude: snigle

22:30:02  <Tefad> wtf at not working in openttd?
22:30:12  <mynetdude> peter1138 sidings... yeah that would work

22:30:25  <mynetdude> Tefad I never understood that, so I'll pretend I did
22:30:36  <Nite> think they worked fine in 053 ...
22:30:49  <Tefad> well i know what GRFs are and i've used them
22:31:02  <Tefad> i'm just confused as to why someone would purposefully make them not work in ottd

23:20:40  <mynetdude> alright, since I am no longer using double track so therefore I have no more need for one way signals... now the question is for you experts... how would you setup signals for a single line with siding? do I setup two ways for all areas needing to be protected?

23:27:36  <peter1138> p = signal facing >
23:27:47  <peter1138> simple
23:28:39  <mynetdude> haha whoever asked me if I was a rail dispatcher... kind of a silly question if I can't get my flow straight
23:29:19  <Bjarni> that sounds like a a good qualification
23:29:25  <Bjarni> at least for some rail companies
23:29:29  <Bjarni> :P
23:29:58  <mynetdude> peter1138 yes but lets say there are no trains going in the direction of the d signals why would I want my train to take the siding with p signals if it can just go straight?
23:30:22  <mynetdude> or the real question is... how long should my sidings be?
23:30:41  <Bjarni> long enough to keep the longest train between the two signals
23:30:42  <DaleStan> Long enough to fit all but one of your trains on either side.
23:30:52  <peter1138> because when you use two-way signals you'll eventually end up with two trains on either side, stuck with nowhere to go
23:31:14  <Bjarni> <mynetdude> peter1138 yes but lets say there are no trains going in the direction of the d signals why would I want my train to take the siding with p signals if it can just go straight?  <-- you are asking for something so advanced that the game can't handle it
23:31:26  <DaleStan> Maybe all but two (on that track system, that is), but no shorter than that.
23:31:27  <mynetdude> but thats silly... I have been on trains where we'd be on a single mainline with a siding on each side of us
23:31:39  <Bjarni> me too
23:31:43  <peter1138> yes, but that's real life
23:31:44  <Bjarni> but then it's human controlled
23:31:51  <mynetdude> true
23:31:56  <Bjarni> this needs a computer to make the decision for you
23:32:31  <Bjarni> and you don't want to allow the computer to use a minute each time a train has to pass a switch
23:32:35  <Bjarni> you want it to be fast
23:32:42  <Bjarni> hence somewhat simple
23:33:00  <mynetdude> well then a dual track mainline would be better
23:33:03  <Bjarni> also... complex signals needs complex code and we didn't write that ;)
23:33:12  <mynetdude> of course
23:37:07  <mynetdude> so let me guess... I can't have say a two way pre entry signal and then two way signals on the L and R sidings with the mainline in the middle and then again on the other end and then an exit signal, will the game work that way?

23:38:34  <mynetdude> what I meant to ask, not about siding legnth but how often do I need a siding? just before each station?
23:39:01  <mynetdude> guess I'll try that and see what happens
23:39:08  <Bjarni> you need two tracks everywhere you think trains would benefit from being able to meet each other
23:40:40  <mynetdude> well then I guess I'd be better off planning a two track system when I first start a new game
23:41:10  <mynetdude> and then as I add new trains I can upgrade stations/tracks to allow more traffic
23:42:28  <Bjarni> generally I tend to build one track lines in the beginning and then as money allows and traffic increases I make more and more places trains can meet until they end up expanding into each other and I have a double tracked line

23:57:39  <mynetdude> I think the setup I have works

23:59:47  <Bjarni> damn
23:59:57  <Bjarni> I was thinking about heading for bed but now I can't
