00:39:28  <ben_goodger> eekee: you refer to the mass closure of branch lines, and continued privatisation that has since caused worse conditions and more wasted money than ever before?
00:41:33  <eekee> ben_goodger: possibly, but the trains are a lot nicer and more people seem to use them (at least where they exist)
00:42:16  <ben_goodger> hmm
00:43:29  <ben_goodger> first great western [named "most late of all operators"] has just completed a series of overhauls to its mk3 stock that require the passenger to remove his legs before boarding, and ensure that the only thing they can see is a huge grey "F" that is embossed onto the seat in front
00:45:21  <ben_goodger> I could continue anecdoting rhetorically, but I must go to bed now
00:45:27  <ben_goodger> good morning/evening
00:46:06  <eekee> night :)
00:46:37  * eekee is, incidentally, glad to be in the south east, after that comment

07:34:10  * Celestar wonders whether to do work or play or code :P
07:34:18  <peter1138> Bah, I could do with a small laptop that actually contains a powerful processor :o
07:34:49  <Celestar> peter1138: how small?
07:34:59  <Celestar> (weight)
07:35:02  <Celestar> (mass) :P
07:35:26  <Rubidium> you mean a EEE pc (or clone) with a Quad Core Xeon or so?
07:36:01  <Celestar> DC is perfectly fine for a laptop imho. (=

07:37:32  <peter1138> Rubidium, yes, that sounds perfect.
07:37:56  <Pikka> battery life of 5 minutes...
07:38:38  * Rubidium personally doesn't like EEE pcs, they're too small for me to type properly on it.

09:10:39  <Brianetta> I didn't actually leave the chair
09:12:20  <murray> lmao maybe?
09:14:14  <TrueBrain> Brianetta: it is not that funny, but still very nasty :p
09:17:54  * peter1138 wonders if anything more is planned for 0.6.3.
09:20:11  <Brianetta> TrueBrain: I have a nasty streak
09:20:18  <Brianetta> Just look at the difficulty on my server
09:20:27  <TrueBrain> :)
09:20:30  <Brianetta> peter1138: The difficulty is due to gradual loading
09:20:46  <Brianetta> The same save, loaded up with gradual loading off is much easier
09:20:56  <Brianetta> Vehicles spend more time moving
09:21:23  <TrueBrain> Brianetta: the one from yesterday on eht other hand, is very amuzing :)
09:23:02  <peter1138> Brianetta, the problem is that vehicles now load cargo packets that arrive after the vehicle arrived, so vehicles can spend ages waiting if it trickles in slowly.
09:23:32  <peter1138> This seems to affect vehicles even without gradual loading enabled.
09:24:44  <peter1138> So a full station will load quickly without gradual loading, but a station that is not full but still sees cargo regularly will cause the train to take a long time to load.
09:25:21  <Brianetta> Yes
09:25:33  <Brianetta> Gradual loading provides a longer window for the loading of extra packets
09:25:56  <Brianetta> It's definitely easier not to go bankrupt with gradual off
09:26:05  * Brianetta thinks these very hard settings rock
09:27:54  <SmatZ> peter1138: do you plan to change that behaviour?
09:30:52  <roboboy> brian what happens if one does not set a password on your standard server?
09:33:34  <Celestar> loading a cargo wagon IRL takes some time
09:33:51  <Rubidium> peter1138: what about some more bugs still open @

09:46:46  <peter1138> Rubidium, good point.
09:46:47  <Brianetta> roboboy: Your company gets autocleaned in a month
09:47:00  <peter1138> 1 month... Ah :o
09:47:11  <peter1138> See, at 3 months I would've been alright yesterday.
09:47:17  <Brianetta> Yeah, it's like, set a password or never quit.
09:47:20  <peter1138> :)
09:47:22  <Pikka> that's why my companies always disappear :P
09:47:28  <peter1138> More like, set a password or never desync :o
09:47:30  <Pikka> it makes sense now!
09:47:43  <Brianetta> peter1138: An unintended benefit
09:47:44  <TrueBrain> peter1138: it takes you a month to rejoin?
09:47:59  <peter1138> TrueBrain, it does when I'd started preparing dinner.
09:48:07  <TrueBrain> peter1138: haha :)
09:48:46  <Brianetta> Getting errors on the console
09:48:52  <peter1138> Multistop errors?
09:48:58  <Brianetta> about vehicles arriving at the wrong stop
09:49:32  <peter1138> *nod*
09:49:38  <peter1138> FS#2268 sounds easy to fix.
09:50:49  <Brianetta> With gradual loading, my train spends half its time stationary at the platform
09:51:01  <Brianetta> It's not to do with new passengers arriving, there are thousands waiting
09:51:30  <peter1138> It should load / unload regularly.
09:51:42  <Brianetta> It does
09:51:45  <Brianetta> but slowly
09:51:58  <Brianetta> with the setting off, it spends about 2 days on the platform
09:53:24  <Brianetta> Currently it spends 10 an d a half days at platform
09:54:24  <Brianetta> Bah, my train's at its end-of-life, and I can't afford a new one yet
09:54:30  <Brianetta> That's slow progress
09:55:05  <Brianetta> I can *almost* afford a second train now
09:55:15  <Brianetta> That should double my income
09:55:38  <Brianetta> but will double my loan repayments
09:57:52  * Pikka points out that with NARS2, trains cost a lot less to run when they're sitting in the platform than when they're driving, so the effect is somewhat countered. :O
09:57:55  <Brianetta> Interesting that upgrading to a Super Sprinter would just about wipe out my profits
09:58:15  <Pikka> dragon desync'd
09:58:18  <Brianetta> Pikka: Are you planning to revisit UKRS one day, with improvements like that?
09:58:27  <Pikka> possibly! ;)
09:58:29  <Brianetta> Yeah, he was desyncong yesterday
09:58:53  * Brianetta wuvs Pikka's grfs

10:09:29  <sulai> hey
10:09:34  <sulai> I've just read
10:09:45  <sulai> and I would like to help with the german translation
10:09:50  <Celestar> peter1138: what would constitute wuch a nessecity?
10:09:54  <peter1138> "korrections", hah
10:10:00  <sulai> ^^
10:10:02  <sulai> yes
10:10:11  <peter1138> Celestar, depends on the context, as Vikthor said ;)
10:10:35  <Celestar> as mixing processes bring the reactants into direct molecular contact, which is required for a chemical reaction to actually take place.
10:10:54  <peter1138> If a native speaker would pause while saying the phrase out loud, then use a comma. Or something like that.
10:11:05  <Celestar> I'd say no comma there
10:11:43  <peter1138> Without is fine there.
10:12:30  <Celestar> $BOSS wants comma. Methinks $BOSS should concentrate on the semantics, not the syntax
10:12:48  <sulai> peter1138 is editing src\lang\german.txt the only thing I have to do to help translating? What about strgen ?
10:13:07  <peter1138> Well the prefered way is with a webtranslator account.
10:14:18  <peter1138> Celestar, what's more important, "... direct molecular contact" or "chemical reaction ..."?
10:14:57  <sulai> peter1138 ?
10:16:09  <Celestar> peter1138: direct molecular contact
10:16:27  <peter1138> Then with the comma is fine.
10:17:32  <peter1138> sulai, yeah.
10:17:42  <Celestar> can't believe I'm fighting over a comma

10:35:00  <Brianetta> Stopping trains to make level crossings safer is a daft idea.
10:35:17  *** Kommer2 [] has joined #openttd
10:35:31  <Brianetta> It's not like the train cares a jot whether a road vehicle just exploded.
10:37:09  <Celestar> Brianetta: but railway crossings have a signal (=
10:37:31  <peter1138> And a speed limit, usually.
10:37:36  <Brianetta> Celestar: They do.  When was the last time an HST stopped for you?
10:38:32  <Brianetta> ECML level crossing speed limits are 100mph
10:38:39  <Brianetta> That's really crawling
10:38:40  <Rubidium> if HST means Hopelessly Slow Train, then it wasn't very long agao (though it didn't wait for me)
10:38:52  <peter1138> Brianetta, I think you keep typing trains instead of road vehicles...
10:39:02  <Celestar> Brianetta: not for me, but I heard that happened. If the signal doesn't indicate the crossing to be clear, the driver will stop the train.
10:39:30  <Brianetta> peter1138: I do?
10:39:40  <Celestar> Brianetta: yeah. 160km/h in Germany. There were a few till 200km/h, but that idea was dropped in the 90s

10:41:19  <Brianetta> They're just things that occasionally explode
10:41:26  <Celestar> Brianetta: I consider it a stupid idea as well. Better would be: 1) to limit crossing to 160km/h, 2) to have the RV check that the tile behind the crossing is free.
10:41:43  <Brianetta> Celestar: Presignal the corssing for RVs (:
10:41:48  <peter1138> Enough space for the length of the RV.

11:01:24  <Celestar> peter1138: because normally the train would stop IRL if you have a broken down vehicle on the track.
11:01:50  <peter1138> If there's enough time.
11:02:00  <peter1138> Queue or stopped is just bloody stupid, however.
11:02:01  <Brianetta> The trainwould certainly *try* to stop
11:02:08  <Celestar> peter1138: normally crossings close minutes before the train arrives.
11:02:17  <Brianetta> They do with PBS
11:02:24  <Brianetta> I'm at least nice enough to use long signal blocks
11:02:36  <Celestar> so am I
11:02:39  <roboboy> is what id rather see
11:02:41  <Celestar> at least longer than the longest train
11:02:48  <roboboy> I try to
11:02:55  <Rubidium> Celestar: yeah, we had that here too. Though they also opened before the train arrived...
11:03:02  <peter1138> Basically we could improve vehicle behaviour, rather than changing train behaviour.
11:03:06  <Brianetta> I always do with PBS; without,t he only short blocks are at junctions
11:03:09  <peter1138> +road
11:03:15  <Celestar> <= this is good
11:03:20  <Celestar> does it work and is it desync safe?
11:04:00  <peter1138> Hmm, that's an old patch...
11:04:08  <Celestar> VERY old
11:04:15  <Celestar> but it shouldn't be too difficult, right?
11:04:23  <peter1138> Hopefully.
11:04:40  <Celestar> MEH
11:04:41  <peter1138> Well, it will need to handle articulated RVs too, now.
11:04:59  <Celestar> peter1138: porting the vehicle detail window cleanup to trunk means rewriting it :(
11:05:15  <peter1138> Celestar, that's why you should've done it against trunk first ;)
11:05:24  <roboboy> I know its old but it does the job

11:07:12  <Celestar> well, theoretically they are possible ...
11:07:13  <Rubidium> I reckon the bottom of the maglev train will be completely wracked by the steel Model T
11:07:32  <Celestar> Rubidium: don't underestimate the mass of those magnets (=
11:08:30  <Celestar> Maglevs are much lighter than normal trains, but they're still very heavy vehicles (weight per seat)
11:08:48  <Brianetta> Rubidium: Transrapid hugs the track; it's not going to bounce over.  It'll be a fight to the death.
11:09:11  <Celestar> when last a Transrapid crashed, it didn't look healthy
11:09:20  <Rubidium> Celestar: yeah, but there's tricky control mechanisms and such, and even when it "hugs" the track, all kinds of debri will go under the train
11:10:33  <sulai> <peter1138> sulai, why *shouldn't* they? <-- because i think it's better game play. vehicles are weak enough in the game. so why let them crash ;)
11:11:00  <Celestar> RVs are not weak
11:11:12  <Celestar> RVs just have an unnatually long loading time.
11:11:25  <Celestar> a bus typically loads/unloads faster than a normal train.
11:11:37  <Celestar> we should reflect that in-game
11:11:42  <Celestar> hey.
11:11:48  <Celestar> er .. wrong window :P

11:25:21  *** archjb [] has joined #openttd
11:25:35  <sulai> all transportation types should be balanced. And I think preventing road vehicles to crash all the times is a step in the right direction
11:25:56  <Noldo> you can do that with bridges
11:26:07  <Noldo> balacing is best done with costs
11:26:10  <eekee> bridges in cities suck
11:26:18  <Brianetta> The London Stock Exchange has suspended trading
11:26:35  <eekee> and having vehicles wait on level crossings looks incredibly stupid
11:26:48  <eekee> whoa really?
11:26:55  <Brianetta>
11:27:09  <peter1138> Oh, technical glitch :)
11:27:10  <sulai> Noldo: yes you can, even with the patch enabled... it needs more space to build a bridge but you can do more traffic load
11:27:11  <eekee> oh a technical glitch
11:27:30  <Brianetta> Hackers!
11:27:48  <eekee> hehe
11:28:00  <peter1138> Gigajum's solution is what I want to see done.
11:28:04  <Brianetta> Technical glitch is probably a euphemism for market crash
11:28:13  <sulai> peter1138 I agree
11:28:35  <eekee> I hope not, the british economy has got scarily bad in just a few weeks
11:28:49  <Brianetta> Scarily bad, heh
11:29:03  <sulai> Gigajum's solution and PBS should prevent 90% of all crashes
11:29:05  <Brianetta> The economy is as good as people's confidence in it
11:29:23  <sulai> 10% are broken vehicles on the level crossing... shit happens ^^
11:29:59  <Brianetta> Less than that
11:30:05  <Celestar> hm.
11:30:11  <Brianetta> Mor vehicles lose fights with maglevs
11:30:15  <sulai> Brianetta: yes maybe even less
11:30:43  <Brianetta> They cross when it's safe, then a Satrun V rocket on magnets comes out of nowhere and passes right through them
11:31:44  <peter1138> See, vehicles should automatically reserve x-tiles ahead of them... but then that messes up pathfinder operation...
11:32:21  <sulai> Brianetta thats right... if you put PBS signals in a good distance, the level crossing gets barred early enough. But it needs the care of the track builder
11:32:33  <eekee> lol "saturn 5 on magnets", I like
11:32:43  <Brianetta> So does that patch that stops trains
11:32:56  <sulai> Brianetta yes
11:33:24  <Brianetta> Now,as a rail operator, I do care enough to do that
11:33:31  <Brianetta> because trains aren't stopped
11:34:01  <welshdragon> here's a question for you devs: can i have two openttd programs, one that runs nightlies,a nd the other that runs stables?
11:34:19  <sulai> hm I think Gigajum's solution is better than stopping trains
11:34:21  <peter1138> Yes. Just put them in different directories.
11:34:30  <welshdragon> peter1138, ok cool
11:35:11  <sulai> Gigajum's solution should make level crossings really safe (except those busses broken on level crossings)
11:35:31  <peter1138> Gigajum's solutions should work well except for adjacent crossings.
11:35:34  <peter1138> -s
11:35:40  <Noldo> what is this gigajum
11:35:44  <Noldo> 's solution?
11:36:13  <Brianetta> Adjacent crossings should work too
11:36:13  <peter1138>
11:36:21  <sulai> but Gigajum's solution does have disadvantages: a) adjacent crossings: RV are too slow and get caught by trains  b) maglevs still kill RV
11:37:12  <sulai> Noldo
11:37:31  * peter1138 suspects, if the railtype stuff hits trunk, that someone will make a NewGRF that prevents monorail and maglev level crossings...
11:37:40  <Brianetta> sulai: Why do you believe adjacent crossings to remain a problem with that solution?
11:38:09  <Yexo> peter1138: how much work has to be done before the railtype stuff can hit trunk?
11:38:31  <eekee> monorails should be overhead anyway
11:38:45  <Brianetta> eekee: Not necessarily
11:38:49  <eekee> o ok
11:38:59  <peter1138> Level crossings need to be finished, and callbacks added.
11:39:16  <peter1138> Oh, and tunnel entrances need sorting out.
11:39:18  <sulai> Brianetta: if there are say 2 crossings next to each other... RV will wait until both are free and the RV can reach the other side. while RV is traveling through, another train might come over the 2nd level crossing and catch the bus
11:39:28  <Brianetta>
11:39:30  <Brianetta> Not elevated
11:39:45  <peter1138> It is, by about 1 foot ;)
11:39:50  <Brianetta> sulai: RV won't wait ntil both are free
11:39:51  <sulai> Brianetta a RV must get through all adjacent crossings which needs more time
11:40:03  <Brianetta> If one closes, it'll stop
11:40:33  <welshdragon> what people should do is have a pbs signal in front of a crossing (least 6 tiles) like in real lifw
11:40:34  <sulai> <Brianetta> If one closes, it'll stop  <-- this means RV stops on the first level crossing
11:40:53  <sulai> ...if the second one closes
11:40:59  <roboboy> gnight
11:41:05  <Brianetta> no
11:41:09  <Brianetta> I mean, while it's crossing
11:41:20  <Brianetta> if one of the level crossings closes, it will stop for it
11:41:35  <sulai> Brianetta in front of all crossings?
11:41:40  <Brianetta> Any that close
11:41:46  <Brianetta> AFTER having passed the first
11:42:31  <sulai> Brianetta: yes but if a RV has to stop at the second level crossing of 2 adjacent crossings, then it has to stop on the first level crossing... and can be caught there
11:42:46  <welshdragon> the adjacent problem could be solved by pbs again, if the path is clear, then the train can pass, if there is an obstruction to the next pbs signal, then the train must stop
11:42:55  <Brianetta> no
11:43:03  <roboboy> rvs are safe inbetween two crossings
11:43:09  <Brianetta> there's a spot between all crossing which is safe to wait for shorter vehicles
11:43:12  <Noldo> roboboy: not longones
11:43:20  <sulai> welshdragon: this is what my patch does... but most people dont like trains to stop for vehicles
11:43:29  <roboboy> which I dont use
11:43:34  <roboboy> long vehicles
11:43:34  <welshdragon> it's realistic
11:43:38  <Brianetta> sulai: Trains shouldn't be able to stop on a dime like that
11:43:43  <sulai> welshdragon.
11:43:48  <roboboy> gnight
11:44:01  <Brianetta> Click stop on a heavy train; that's how they are supposed to stop
11:44:14  <Brianetta> Red signals give trains magic brakes, unfortunately
11:44:27  <Brianetta> as does the end of the track
11:44:43  <sulai> Brianetta whats the point?
11:45:52  <Celestar> Brianetta: I think that clicking on stop still takes too little distance :P
11:45:56  *** roboboy [3aad2910@] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
11:46:04  <Brianetta> Celestar: I do too, tbh
11:46:08  <sulai> I think it's okay how trains stop at signals... its a game after all.
11:46:19  <welshdragon> ok, why not use the principlr of real life
11:46:19  <Brianetta> A game?  You sound like Belugas
11:46:22  <Celestar> sulai: I don't agree (=
11:46:37  <eekee> stopping at stations is already too realistic for fun lol
11:46:50  <Celestar> eekee: why?
11:47:25  <sulai> hehe yes too much realism in a game is no good for fun
11:47:36  <eekee> watching a maglev shoot towards a station and crawl into it...
11:47:36  <Brianetta> sulai: In which case, let the RVs explode.
11:47:41  <sulai> thats why: trains should stop for road vehicles!!
11:47:45  <Celestar> so "fun" means that you have trains driving bumper-to-bumper?
11:48:07  <eekee> I didn't say that
11:48:26  <Brianetta> bumper to bumper is how you can tell the realism fans from the others
11:48:30  <sulai> Brianetta: thats one of the main reasons, RV explode right now in the game... the goal is to prevent such things
11:48:47  <Brianetta> sulai: But preventing it removes fun
11:48:53  <Celestar> I think the game would be much more fun if you need to put thought into how to optimize junctions/stations for speed
11:48:57  <welshdragon> IRL, train pathing uses green > double yellow > single yellow > red, in fact it uses more then that, but you get the idea
11:48:59  <sulai> because there are less crashes?
11:49:06  <Brianetta> yes
11:49:09  <eekee> oh for crying out loud, bumper to bumper is not a train thing, it wouldn't be a train GAME even if they were bumper to bumper
11:49:12  <Brianetta> it's not like my trains get hurt
11:49:49  <Brianetta> not a train thing.  I keep forgetting the exploding boxes are a transport idea...
11:50:03  <Celestar> what are we fighting about in the first place anyway?!
11:50:23  <Penny> hur
11:50:40  <eekee> I'm not sure actually ^^' I did get a bit upset when you overgeneralised my idea when I was trying not to overgeneralise yours, Celestar
11:50:42  <sulai> Celestar: I fight for safer road vehicles ;)
11:51:01  <Celestar> so you want trains to move either at max speed or stop. I don't. I'd prefer having the accelerate and decelerate gradually. Possibly more gradually than they do now.
11:51:07  <Brianetta> Road vehicles can be prefectly safe.  Just keep them off the tracks.
11:51:27  <Penny> Celestar: I agree with that.
11:51:38  <sulai> Brianetta what if a track builder builds tracks over your roads silently ;P
11:52:11  <Brianetta> On my server, road crossings give RVs an insanely high pathfinding penalty.  If there's another way, they'll take it.
11:52:15  <eekee> Oh what I was going to say was I'd like trains to be more gradual at signals (less sudden) and less gradual at stations
11:52:33  <Celestar> hence we need a check that the RV only enters the crossing if it can clear on the oder end.
11:52:50  <Celestar> eekee: I'd think trains so slow down at signals like they do at stations.
11:53:03  <Celestar> eekee: and clearly, accelerate more slowly than they slow down of course.
11:53:12  <sulai> Brianetta actually this is done by my patch: it reserves the track tile for the RV and the train is free to find another way
11:53:15  <Brianetta> Trains should be able to overrun signals and ends of line, like in Locomotion
11:53:41  <Brianetta> sulai: The train's on rails.  Level crossings are usually in cities, which are a spider-web of roads.
11:53:42  <eekee> Celestar: yeah, basically
11:54:04  <Brianetta> My track isn't going to be reserved by any road vehicle.
11:54:12  <sulai> <Celestar> hence we need a check that the RV only enters the crossing if it can clear on the oder end.  <-- right, but it's not that easy for adjacent crossings or maglev crossings

11:55:04  *** Mortal [] has joined #openttd
11:55:08  <Brianetta> It would be funny if, instead of making a signal-style stop, it sent a stop command to an oncoming train.  Then we'd see if it could slow down in time...
11:55:20  <eekee> haha yes
11:56:01  <eekee> oh main that would make major headaches for track planning. You'd also have to be able to assign speed limits to sections of track so trains had a chance of stopping
11:56:11  <sulai> Brianetta in the moment the train driver sees the bus plus some reaction time ;)
11:56:32  <eekee> then realism would call for blind corners...
11:56:36  <Brianetta> It's going to stop half a train-length *through* the bus
11:56:59  <SmatZ> hehe
11:57:03  <sulai> Brianetta depends how fast and heavy the train is and when the train driver starts to stop
11:57:06  <Brianetta> Blind corners is fine by me.  I don't mind placing distant signals.
11:57:53  <sulai> Celestar: speed limit and RV waiting for free tiles at the end of (adjacent) level crossings should do...
11:58:13  <Celestar> sulai: that should be doable without too much hassle methinks
11:58:14  <Noldo> why speed limits?
11:58:19  <sulai> Celestar: but speed limit must be lower if there are more adjacent level crossings to give the RV time to get over there
11:58:27  <Celestar> Noldo: speed limits for trains on level crossing, of course
11:58:29  <Celestar> (=
11:59:02  <Brianetta> Perhaps a minimum speed for RVs, too
11:59:10  <Brianetta> No less than 50kmh, etc
11:59:35  <sulai> Brianetta there are RV that have max speed of 48kmh...
11:59:53  <Celestar> er..
12:00:08  <eekee> the most useful busses in grvts have that top speed
12:00:15  <Celestar> during the time you have a RV of max speed of 48km/h, you have slow trains as well. Where's the point?
12:00:37  <Noldo> sulai: you can make an rv with max speed much lower
12:00:48  <Rubidium> Celestar: between the well and the Where
12:01:00  <Celestar> lol
12:01:12  <Celestar> we should consider reducing aircraft crashes.
12:01:22  <Celestar> on a large game with many planes, you have a crash a year
12:01:28  <Celestar> which sounds kind of stupid
12:02:02  <Rubidium> Celestar: it balances with the complexity of building rail/road/ship routes

12:15:47  <MrMist> eekee: yep
12:16:06  <MrMist> eekee: And it's kinda strange it's made that way. Thing is, the fixed one WILL affect gameplay
12:16:12  <eekee> mmm
12:16:43  <MrMist> But it seems strange that suddenly the income increase some again during those "glitches".
12:16:51  <MrMist> So... if you're REALLY lucky.....
12:16:51  <eekee> will make payment a bit easier to predict for certain cases. That's cool with me
12:18:37  <MrMist> So... I'll submit this as a "patch" then?
12:20:52  <MrMist> Anyone ?
12:20:57  <MrMist> this isn't really a bug, is it ?

12:57:55  <MrMist> believe me
12:57:58  <Rubidium> yeah, I've seen the graphs
12:58:06  <Rubidium> but my own graph shows something completely different
12:58:14  <MrMist> Then you've done something wrong
12:58:37  <MrMist> You want proof ?
12:58:50  <MrMist> I COULD if you really want it
13:00:17  <MrMist> Also, IN the source code, it saus that the slope should be -2

13:14:39  <SmatZ> here are the specs :)
13:16:23  <peter1138> I don't see spikes...
13:17:55  <MrMist> SmatZ: Where are the days1 and days2 values defined ?
13:18:12  <peter1138> In table/cargo_const.h
13:18:22  <peter1138> Oh, that's literal.
13:21:10  <MrMist> SmatZ: I still can't find the definition that days2 = days from days1
13:21:34  <SmatZ>     * if t<=T1 then timefactor=255
13:21:35  <SmatZ>     * else if t<=(T1+T2) then timefactor=255-(t-T1)

13:22:08  *** yorick [] has joined #openttd
13:22:29  <Rubidium> now define days_over_days1 = t - T1 and replace that in the above
13:22:51  <Rubidium> if dod <= 0 then timefactor=255
13:23:01  <Rubidium> if dod <= T2 then timefactor=255-dod
13:23:33  <Rubidium> else timefactor=255-dod-(dod-T2) = 255-2*dod+T2
13:24:07  <Rubidium> so our implementation is an exact implementation of the specifications (as just mathematically proven)
13:24:35  <peter1138> And there are no spikes ;)
13:24:37  <Rubidium> now imagine T1=4 and T2=6
13:25:14  <Rubidium> for t=10 this yields 249, for t=11 it is 247 and for t=12 it is 245
13:25:27  <Rubidium> when I use MrMist's algorithm the values are:
13:25:44  <Rubidium> for t=10 this yields 249, for t=11 it is 250 and for t=12 it is 247
13:26:11  <MrMist> i didn't know that days2 was relative to days1. I thought they were absolute
13:26:40  <Rubidium> so your model was incorrect

15:34:58  *** Jerimiah40 [] has joined #openttd
15:35:09  <Progman> the basic one? one-way signals? presignals? "advanced" signals (aka YAPP-signal)?
15:36:03  <Muppis> Ehm, haha
15:36:20  <Muppis> There is the one (Click and place) and it's the one ctrl+click
15:36:27  <Muppis> It's the ctrl click i dont get :p
15:36:54  <Progman> you mean the semaphores?
15:37:29  <Muppis> Yeah, there is like small signs on them
15:37:29  <Progman> - this one?
15:37:41  <Muppis> y
15:37:46  <Muppis> That's the one
15:38:04  <Progman> there is no difference between this semaphores and "traffic like" signals
15:38:11  *** Swallow [] has joined #openttd
15:38:15  <Kloopy> (apart from how they look, of course)
15:38:17  <Progman> only the difference you see
15:38:19  <Progman> yes
15:38:36  <Muppis> Aha, but when you can get like small signs under them, like "Exit-way" etc
15:38:45  <Progman> so like if you playing eyecandy-like you maybe want old-school looking semaphores
15:38:56  <Progman> that can be on both types
15:39:12  <Muppis> "Entry Pre-signals" according to the wiki
15:39:18  <Muppis> exit and combo aswell
15:39:24  <Progman> check
15:39:32  <Progman> and the image which is shown
15:39:54  <Muppis> ah
15:39:55  <Progman> build the signal first
15:40:03  <Progman> then ctrl-click on it
15:40:13  <FauxFaux> Turn on the signal gui!
15:40:27  <Progman> to circle throw normal->entry->exit->both->(advance->)normal
15:41:20  <Muppis> So, i place the entry signal where i want the train to enter (or well, a free spot in the station) and exit for them to exit right
15:41:46  <Progman> these presignal entry-exit stuff is for some further signal logic
15:42:01  <Progman> it doesn't mean its for an entry and exit of a station
15:42:47  <Muppis> aha :o
15:43:22  <Progman> presignal is like blocking the train further away from passing
15:43:39  <Progman> as seen here:
15:44:07  <Muppis> ah, so when the left train leaves, the lights will turn green for the train coming in to the station?
15:44:14  <Progman> so the train dont wait inside the junction and blocking it, and maybe facing the wrong line which isn't free
15:44:27  <Muppis> aah
15:44:29  <Progman> as the block after the white-exit-signal gets free, yes
15:45:07  <Muppis> Signals is tricky tbh :p

19:32:11  <MrMist> quick eustion
19:32:37  <nicfer> removing them requires less sprites
19:33:06  <nicfer> maybe make presignals a default type of programmed signals?

20:01:34  <the_bat>
20:01:36  <glx> it's installed with openttd 0.6.2
20:01:39  *** [com]buster [] has joined #openttd
20:01:57  <glx> all 0.6.x indeed
20:02:42  <Brianetta> That graph looks like the maximum of a negative square function and a linear function
20:03:16  <the_bat> I have 0.6.2 but I can't connect to some servers because I don't have this GRF
20:03:41  <the_bat> U sure it's included in 0.6.2???
20:03:54  <Brianetta> the_bat: It isn't if you're checking out svn
20:03:58  <Brianetta> somebody forgot to include it
20:04:22  <SmatZ> I am not sure, I think it was forgotten in 0.6.2 - but maybe in the official tag or so
20:04:27  <the_bat> so what can I do to fix it???
20:04:37  <Brianetta> It's not in the official tag
20:04:45  <Brianetta> It's in the official binary packages
20:04:57  <the_bat> but lot of servers us it
20:04:59  <Brianetta> (rumour has it)
20:05:11  <Brianetta> the_bat: Do you use svn?
20:05:21  <Brianetta> wait
20:05:23  <Brianetta> the_bat: Do you use svn???

20:11:05  <the_bat> damn where I may find correct link  to download generic tram set v0.4?
20:11:35  <Belugas> first place i would look for is on Zephyris's signature
20:11:42  <Belugas> i think
20:11:44  <SmatZ> what's bad about this link?
20:12:42  <Belugas> which points to this dwonload:
20:12:46  <Belugas> which does work
20:13:39  <the_bat> I can't find the link on the forum but .... ah THX SO MUCH
20:13:59  <SmatZ> the_bat:
20:14:05  <SmatZ> errr Belugas posted it...
20:14:23  <SmatZ> it is directly at the bottom of this ...
20:14:33  <SmatZ> so nobody would expect you could overlook that :-P

20:57:13  <Sacro> welshdragon: what happened?
21:04:27  <SmatZ> Eddi|zuHause: interesting, I prefer "Sie" over "du" (similiar forms in Czech)... I hear "du" from ads/servers/everything for teenagers and I find it disguisting :-P
21:04:53  <SmatZ> "are we friends or what you call me this way?" my opinion
21:05:15  <SmatZ> maybe in Germany, the situation is different
21:05:37  <Eddi|zuHause> well, games are very informal...
21:06:20  <Eddi|zuHause> but for broadcast media, "du" is very weird... it should be "ihr" (plural)
21:07:33  <Eddi|zuHause> it really depends on context... in some companies, "du" is used between colleagues who hardly know each other, in others, it's only "sie"
21:07:36  *** Jerimiah40 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

21:16:09  <TrueBrain> Eddi|zuHause: yeah ..
21:16:23  <Ammler> it works with trunk...
21:16:36  <TrueBrain> so someone messed up a sync
21:16:49  <Ammler> seems so :-)
21:17:01  <Ammler> not here anymore
21:17:13  <TrueBrain> but .. compiles fine here
21:17:17  <TrueBrain> so you messed up ;)

21:41:27  <Prof_Frink> Unless Moffat's taking over that too
21:41:31  <el_En> off-topic; can someone give me two or more reasons why switching to HG would be a better idea than SVN? (currently using CVS, platforms Linux, Mac, Win.)

21:46:42  <Eddi|zuHause> el_En: with hg, you can commit local changes
21:48:21  <el_En> merging is supposed to be less painful in HG than in SVN?

21:51:19  <Eddi|zuHause> that i can't judge, but at least your local changes are versioned then
21:51:44  <el_En> that's good
21:51:45  <Eddi|zuHause> hg won't magically resolve conflicts
21:53:37  <el_En> in at least CVS, it's not the conflicts that create the pain, but finding out revision numbers between which you want to merge for each file, and merging one file at a time.
21:54:20  <el_En> maybe that's a little better in SVN with its global revision numbering.
