00:00:13  <Rubidium> nope
00:00:48  <SpComb^> must be some routing anomly then, because it does work from my dedus tunnel
00:00:54  <Rubidium> it does from my server which has native IPv6
00:01:22  <SpComb^> freenet6 -> fihel01 broken, then
00:01:45  <SpComb^> can you give a freenet6 address?
00:02:47  <Rubidium> 2001:5c0:1400:b::196 is likely the 'other' end of my tunnel

00:26:55  <JakeGrimshaw> hello
00:28:49  <Zuu> Hi JakeGrimshaw
00:29:30  <Zuu> It's always nice to read your email and see that the devs has been able to fix another bug, making things even more stable.
00:34:37  <JakeGrimshaw> about what ? i forget :)
00:35:38  *** Illegal_Alien [] has quit [Quit:  HydraIRC -> <- \o/]
00:38:44  <Rubidium> Zuu: yeah; I'm starting to get a bit happier about the state of the bug tracker again

00:40:45  <JakeGrimshaw> anyone eyeing my Swiss scenario then ?! :P
00:40:53  <Rubidium> 2 are more or less harmless, one is annoying for AI developers, one is possibly annoying for competitive players. The rest is either "not enough information" or "Mac OS X"
00:44:13  <JakeGrimshaw> also, does anyone here know if it would be possible to change the rock graphics ?
00:44:22  <JakeGrimshaw> if some were re-drawn, could they be used instead
00:45:02  <Yexo> you could ask if opengfx wants to include the new version, or alternatively create a newgrf that replaces the rock graphics
00:45:16  <JakeGrimshaw> oh ok
00:45:25  <JakeGrimshaw> i was hoping maybe to replace them with ice graphics
00:45:30  <JakeGrimshaw> for mountain faces and glaciers
00:45:33  <Zuu> Rubidium: The one annoying for the AI devs, is it that one that compile errors do not show when you load a game?
00:45:42  <Rubidium> Zuu: yup
00:45:50  <Yexo> JakeGrimshaw: that would be perfect for a newgrf
00:46:12  <JakeGrimshaw> awesome, I shall look into that
00:46:35  <Zuu> Though you was going to post pone fixing that one to after 1.0, but if you do it before I won't complain. :-)
00:46:48  <JakeGrimshaw> also, i dont know how much you use rocks + Alpine Climate ? but if/when you do, there are graphical errors in there.
00:47:00  <JakeGrimshaw> not really anyone's problem, i know, but i would like to look into getting them fixed myself
00:47:12  <Yexo> what kind of graphical problems?
00:47:23  <JakeGrimshaw> well
00:47:28  <JakeGrimshaw> take one tile individually
00:47:42  *** Adambean [] has joined #openttd
00:47:56  <Rubidium> Zuu: true, though it's one of the bugs I won't postpone 1.0.0 for
00:48:10  <Rubidium> and I'm far from certain how much needs to be changed to solve it
00:48:16  <JakeGrimshaw> you may or may not know that since 1.0.0 beta 3 (ish), it is possible to place rocks under snow, and then when the snow retreats the rock still shows ?
00:48:37  <Yexo> JakeGrimshaw: yes, I coded that :)
00:48:38  <Rubidium> JakeGrimshaw: don't think Yexo knows that
00:48:45  <Rubidium> argh... just too late :(
00:48:50  <JakeGrimshaw> ohhh im talking to just the right person then !
00:49:02  <Zuu> Indeed, it would also depend I guess if you fix it properly or just a workaround. But still without having taken a good look at the code it's hard to say how much work it is.
00:49:37  <Yexo> Rubidium: have you looked at that bug already? Else I can take a look now
00:49:40  <Yexo> doesn't sound too hard
00:49:54  <Rubidium> Yexo: no, haven't looked at it
00:50:06  <JakeGrimshaw> basically, a rock tile under the snow is fine, but as the snow retreats, you get the tiles that are say 1/4 grass and 3/4 snow, then a month later 1/2 and 1/2. and then the following month 3/4 grass and 1/4 snow, and then finally you get the rock appearing.
00:50:19  <JakeGrimshaw> would it be possible to create tiles that are 1/4 rock and 3/4 snow ?
00:50:23  <JakeGrimshaw> or snow on rocks ?
00:50:50  <Yexo> not sure, since there are no graphics in the baseset for that
00:51:12  <JakeGrimshaw> true, but if some were drawn, would it be possible code-wise ?
00:51:23  <Yexo> codewise it's no problem at all
00:51:56  <JakeGrimshaw> hmmm maybe i shall have a look at it
00:52:05  <JakeGrimshaw> i didnt know how many people (if any) still use the AlpineClimate grf
00:52:08  <Yexo> but I have no idea how it'd work on the newgrf side
00:53:03  <JakeGrimshaw> hmmmmm
00:53:06  <JakeGrimshaw> well thanks for your help anyway
00:58:04  <PeterT> Hey JakeGrimshaw
00:58:21  <JakeGrimshaw> hello
01:01:15  <JakeGrimshaw> you alright ?
01:02:58  <PeterT> Yes, you?
01:03:03  <JakeGrimshaw> yeahh not bad
01:03:11  <PeterT> Making that scenario?
01:03:31  <PeterT> you saw I made that comment that we would use the scenario on the server
01:03:39  <PeterT> #jolteon is the server's channel
01:04:15  <JakeGrimshaw> ohhh ok
01:05:25  * Jolteon appears.
01:05:27  <Jolteon> I was summoned.

01:27:21  <JakeGrimshaw> good
01:28:07  *** KritiK [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:28:08  <JakeGrimshaw> is it possible to play as yourself and as an AI in a single player game. I know you can cheat to switch to control them, but it is possible to stop them building anything ?
01:28:47  <Yexo> save the game, remove all AIs you have then reload the game
01:28:54  <Yexo> the dummy AI will be loaded instead and it doesn't do anything
01:29:20  <Eddi|zuHause> you can program your AI to stop on certain conditions (like a sign posted somewhere)
01:29:47  <Eddi|zuHause> unfortunately, you can't chat with AIs :(
01:30:13  <Yexo> I had a patch for that (before noai was merged to trunk)
01:30:42  <JakeGrimshaw> so it will enable me to have say, different train companies ?
01:31:00  <Yexo> you can also create an AI that does nothing
01:31:06  <Yexo> then start that AI a fwe times
01:31:10  <Yexo> and you have the companies for yourself
01:31:25  <JakeGrimshaw> but that would involve making my own AI, yes ?
01:31:59  <Yexo> yes, but that's very simple if it just has to sleep
01:32:05  <JakeGrimshaw> true
01:32:22  *** Chris_Booth [] has left #openttd []
01:32:36  <JakeGrimshaw> i know it wouldnt be advised, but could you not load any old AI, let it crash because you have so many grf's added, and then just use them because they would not build ?
01:33:27  <Yexo> that's also possible
01:33:34  <Yexo> but then you'd have to find a way to reliable crash them
01:33:50  <JakeGrimshaw> they do seem to crash when i load my usual grf's (train sets etc)
01:34:09  <Yexo> you should report those crashes in the noai forum
01:34:13  *** Chris_Booth [] has joined #openttd
01:34:17  <Yexo> if they're not reported they can't be fixed
01:34:37  <JakeGrimshaw> oh, i just thought that the AI's werent created to be used with a mixture of train sets, so i never bothered reporting them
01:35:59  <Yexo> some may not work, but at least they should not crash
01:36:22  <JakeGrimshaw> i suppose so
01:38:04  <CIA-6> OpenTTD: yexo * r19389 /trunk/src/ (settings.cpp table/settings.h): -Fix [FS3676]: only show the "No AIs available" error message when explicitly changing the number of AI opponents
01:38:36  *** Lakie [~Lakie@] has quit [Quit: Sleep]
01:43:02  <JakeGrimshaw> that saving of game technique didnt seem to work
01:43:08  <JakeGrimshaw> they just resumed again when i loaded the game
01:43:42  <Yexo> <Yexo> save the game, remove all AIs you have then reload the game <- you also have to remove all AIs you have, then no AI can be started
01:45:45  <JakeGrimshaw> ok, so I start a game with 2 AI's, save it, quit, go to the main screen and go back to 0 Ai's, and then load the game ?
01:46:08  <Yexo> no, just remove all AI tar files from your computer
01:47:06  <JakeGrimshaw> ohhhh
01:47:22  <JakeGrimshaw> remove all, or just the AI that i began the game with ?
01:48:29  <Yexo> all, otherwise another AI will be loaded instead
01:48:35  <JakeGrimshaw> ohhh ok
01:48:38  <Yexo> but as I said, creating a sleepr AI that does nothing would be easier
01:48:43  <JakeGrimshaw> indeed so
01:48:44  <Yexo> and still allows you to play other games with an AI
01:49:15  <JakeGrimshaw> another idea i am just trying is to play with a StreetTraffic AI, but just never load a cars.grf file

01:54:35  <JakeGrimshaw> this seems to work ok
01:54:48  <JakeGrimshaw> i might use this until i have the time to make an AI as you descrived

01:55:33  <Yexo> just did so for you:
01:57:31  <JakeGrimshaw> blimey, I know you said quick to do, but i thought you meant for someone that was used to making them !
01:57:32  <JakeGrimshaw> thank you
01:57:57  <Yexo> I am used to making them :)
01:59:38  <JakeGrimshaw> ohhhh ok :)
01:59:57  <JakeGrimshaw> are running loads of these AIs likely to slow the game up like a normal AI, even though they are not doing anything ?
02:00:08  <Yexo> not at all
02:00:37  <Yexo> you won't even be able to measure the difference without or with this AI
02:00:59  *** Adambean [] has quit [Quit: Gone fishing]
02:01:31  <JakeGrimshaw> excellent :)
02:01:54  <JakeGrimshaw> is there any way to relieve the 14 max limit on AIs ?
02:02:10  <Yexo> that would be a lot of work
02:02:28  <JakeGrimshaw> oh, not just a simple change then

02:07:14  <JakeGrimshaw> well, if i was to make each one a swiss train company
02:07:22  <JakeGrimshaw> then i would need more than 14 :)

09:54:05  <cyclo> ah ok
09:54:13  <woldemar> guess you searched wiki?
09:54:19  <cyclo> yes
09:54:25  <cyclo> but i can't find a solution

09:55:41  <woldemar> one slow train goes, and another fast train can pass slow one and arrive first?
09:55:50  <cyclo> yes
09:55:55  <cyclo> using 3 tracks
09:56:04  <cyclo> 1 track for pass
09:56:10  <cyclo> hold i take a screenshot
09:56:11  <woldemar> i did that with two railways
09:56:32  <cyclo> what key do screen?
09:56:46  <woldemar> its not needed
09:56:58  <cyclo> ah ok
09:57:13  <woldemar> also my internet is awesomely limited
09:57:49  <woldemar> as i remember: i made two parallel railways with one swquare distance between them
09:58:26  <cyclo> ok i need 2 railways, one for way
09:58:32  <woldemar> then made small rails 1 to 2 and 2 to 1

10:53:38  <SpComb^> whatever you need, point being that two trains can't meet head-on along a single stretch of track
10:54:52  <enr1x> so one before each station would suffice, right?
10:56:43  <SpComb^> whatever you want for capacity
10:56:50  <SpComb^> you could put one on each tile

11:04:33  *** einKarl [] has joined #openttd
11:04:38  <SpComb^> for block signals; it's also possible to do it with path signals, but then the placement needs to be slightly different
11:06:38  <SpComb^> (one two-way signal per track, at the point where it joins the others)

11:11:36  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah, something went wrong there...
11:11:58  <SpComb^> also, too few trees
11:12:11  <SpComb^> and very long signal blocks
11:12:26  <Eddi|zuHause> it only works with long signal blocks
11:12:46  <SpComb^> two signal blocks
11:13:09  <Eddi|zuHause> if the signal blocks are too short, the overtaking train may get stuck against an opposite train
11:13:28  <Eddi|zuHause> you can only put two signal blocks between two switching places
11:13:50  <SpComb^> I see the two blocks, but too short?
11:14:05  <SpComb^> but myes, they have to be suitably long for the overtaking to work sensibly

11:56:32  <DaleStan> blathijs: Is your HOME properly set? It's supposed to try to create $HOME/.renum before ./.renum.
11:58:31  <Rubidium> DaleStan: if I recall correctly HOME isn't set in Debian's autobuilders (i.e. Debian's compile farm)
11:58:56  <Rubidium> DaleStan: and writing to HOME is kinda not-done in case of Debian's autobuilders anyway
11:59:30  <Rubidium> though this probably holds also for other 'build farms'
12:02:47  <Ammler> a system wide data share would be nice, which get overridden from user data.
12:03:24  <Ammler> (but that requires writing data with make)
12:05:02  <Ammler> so you could system data without updating renum

12:10:53  <Rubidium> Ammler: why should it create the files in the first place if in 99% of the time you're not going to change them?
12:11:15  *** enr1x [~kiike@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:11:26  <Ammler> indeed, no need
12:11:32  <Rubidium> I'd say just add a command line parameter to create the files if you want to, read them if they exist and otherwise don't create them
12:11:46  <Ammler> also there is already possible to create the data in custom directory with -D
12:12:37  <Ammler> but it might be needed to compile the system data share in, as not every distro might use same location

14:38:24  <blathijs> Eh? Is KDE not in main?
14:38:31  <Ammler> is it?
14:38:46  <blathijs> Dunno, I prefer not to touch either KDE or GNOME :-)
14:38:53  <blathijs> But why wouldn't it be?
14:38:56  <Ammler> just someone told, he can't build for KDE because of that.
14:40:30  <blathijs> According to, the kde packages are in main
14:41:31  <Ammler> "There is no support for Debian, since the OBS has only Debian releases and none of those is capable of building KDE4 apps."
14:42:48  <Ammler> maybe a release is not like main repo?
14:43:50  <Rhamphoryncus> why is opensfx in non-free?
14:44:20  <glx> non GNU I guess
14:44:24  <Ammler> because of the CC license
14:44:48  <Rhamphoryncus> ah
14:44:50  <Ammler> the "source" isn't free
14:45:23  <blathijs> More specifically, because of the CC _sampling plus_ license, which is very limiting
14:45:32  <blathijs> Some of the CC license are ok for Debian
14:45:39  <blathijs> s/license/licenses/
14:46:27  <blathijs> Ammler: I think OBS refers to the OpenSuSe Build Service there? If so, I don't understand the sentence :-)
14:46:48  <Ammler> blathijs: yes
14:46:53  <blathijs> Or perhaps that's saying it only has stable releases
14:47:02  <blathijs> which can't built _current_ KDE4 apps or something
14:47:05  <Ammler> you can build debian apps on obs too
14:47:30  <Ammler> the obs became something like default build farm for KDE4
14:48:25  <Ammler> there are also some rumor, they add windows and mac :-)
14:54:35  <fonsinchen> BTW: I'm just profiling openttd and those consistency checks for cargolists in openttd.cpp around lines 1180 to 1200 take about 5% of the CPU time.

16:56:54  <Eddi|zuHause> they use some kind of key based on your schoolgrades and waiting time
16:57:20  <Eddi|zuHause> no, why would the university care?

17:00:55  <Eddi|zuHause> why? my university is 500 years old...
17:01:29  <OwenS> Yes, but we have ~5 which are 500 years old (And the best of those have a positive multiplier effect going on) and the rest are ~50...
17:02:37  <OwenS> They all get the same money per student, and pretty much the same support from the government, but the best remain the best
17:04:03  <Eddi|zuHause> the difference might be that until a few years ago, universities were not allowed to collect enrollment fees from students
17:04:38  <OwenS> Here they weren't either. Now, they all collect the maximum, which tends to get paid for by student loan or grant
17:05:16  <OwenS> The major exception is that there is no limitation on what they can charge non-EU students. So they charge lots

17:45:36  <Eddi|zuHause> enr1x: you can't transfer people two ways
17:46:03  <Zuu> Take a look on what the wiki says about transfer systems.

17:52:23  <Eddi|zuHause> no, that won't work either
17:52:30  <Eddi|zuHause> the station is the problem, not the train
17:52:40  <Zuu> Two different trains wil not make sure that the passengers go back again to their source.
17:52:55  <enr1x> oh i see
17:53:07  <Zuu> Its like an airport, dont mix passengers of differnt types.
17:53:24  <enr1x> but then why the people crowd the stations if the train won't accept them?
17:54:41  <Eddi|zuHause> you got that backwards. the people pile up at the station because the train is already full

17:55:31  <Eddi|zuHause> the train visits the station, so the rating is ok, but they can't leave the station by train, so they wait
17:56:02  <enr1x> Eddi|zuHause: ok, what i am doing now is get the people from the southernmost station, transfer them in the middle, and unloading them at the northernmost, now i should take that 1.3K+ people somewhere, right?
17:56:36  <enr1x> the 1.3K+ people are the ones who pile up after seeing the beautiful train leave without them
17:56:46  <Zuu> OwenS: Reminds me of a traffic simulation lab when we got complex value results for the densities of the different sections of the highway.
17:57:05  <OwenS> Zuu: lol. TBH, getting a Complex is probably less unexpected than getting a NaN
17:57:12  <Eddi|zuHause> enr1x: my suggestion is: don't transfer the passengers at all, or try cargodist (find it in the forum)
17:57:58  <Zuu> Or take a look at PAXLink for an example when transfering could be worked in current OpenTTD.
17:58:00  <enr1x> or, perhaps better, then, is with a single train do everything?

17:58:19  <Zuu> (PAXLink is an AI)
17:58:55  <Zuu> In most cases a single train is better, much easier to manage your transport system with direct trains.
17:59:06  <enr1x> Zuu: great!
17:59:18  <enr1x> i will try without PAXlink, then i might even increase my profits :)
18:00:18  <Zuu> Do you play with it now?
18:00:25  <OwenS> Zuu: Hmm. Perhaps I should rename "Float" to "Real", so I have the types Integer, Real and Complex :p
18:00:46  <Zuu> Sounds Forthan but should be okay.
18:01:14  <Zuu> Not sure if Forthan had Complex, but IIRC their floats are named real.
18:01:15  <OwenS> As it's a dynamically tyepd scripting language, you'll probably only rarely do something like "if a isa Real" :P
18:01:18  <enr1x> Zuu: not, later i might try PAXLink

19:54:06  <andythenorth> when testing industry code, if the varaction 2 chain is changed, it's necessary to start a new game to test the chain.  That is a right pain

20:31:05  <Alberth> anything particular you are worried about?
20:31:27  <Terkhen> there is a chance of a production increase if engineering supplies are delivered, but I don't know what will happen if I don't deliver them
20:31:46  <andythenorth> just trying to find the shortest words
20:32:41  <Alberth> just 'delivered' would be enough I think (ie remove 'monthly')
20:32:45  <Rubidium> now reading the non-obvious: production may increase if engineering supplies are not delivered; it only tells a -> b, not ~a -> ~b
20:33:14  <andythenorth> Rubidium: yes quite right

20:34:09  <Alberth> nice

20:38:10  <andythenorth> "Engineering supplies may increase production"
20:38:17  <andythenorth> is about as short as I can make it I reckon :)
20:38:45  <andythenorth> the amount needed is at least 1 crate per month (for a 1 in 4 chance of an increase)
20:38:56  <andythenorth> I could show the amount delivered, but does it matter?
20:40:06  <Eddi|zuHause> if it has a stockpile limit, you can say "Stored: 10 (max 15)" or something
20:40:16  <frosch123> it was added for snowy and deserty towns because users asked annoyingly :)
20:40:17  <andythenorth> I've removed the stockpile limits :)
20:40:27  <andythenorth> I do like it being in desert towns
20:40:46  <andythenorth> I'll try it...
20:41:06  <Eddi|zuHause> but if you have a stockpile, you can have it run out slowly, like processing 1 item per month
20:41:14  <Eddi|zuHause> or 8 items per month
20:41:34  <Eddi|zuHause> then you can see how long it takes to run out
20:41:47  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: I have that code more or less....but it kind of doesn't work in gameplay.  Will take too long to explain!
20:41:55  <andythenorth> I am trying a new variation
20:42:31  <Eddi|zuHause> spreading engineering supplies (or vehicles in ECS) might be easier with cargodist
20:43:48  <andythenorth> I find it an interesting cargo because (A) over time, it's a guaranteed way to boost primary production (B) it needs a *lot* of small deliveries
20:45:49  <Eddi|zuHause> so you have to enforce a delivery every month now, can't stockpile it
20:46:05  <andythenorth> the stockpile would clear every month anyway
20:46:31  <frosch123> if i understood ecs correctly it stockpiles all vehicles, the stockpiled amount improves production (all vehicles are in use), and a certain percentage of them breaks down every month
20:46:45  <andythenorth> hmm
20:47:07  <Eddi|zuHause> that sounds like too much micromanagement
20:47:12  <frosch123> so the production boost decreases exponentially :p
20:47:36  <andythenorth> in the new FIRS code I just check at the end of each month whether any engineering supplies were delivered that month.  If 'yes', then it's 1 in 4 chance of a boost
20:47:41  <andythenorth> it's simple :)
20:47:45  <Eddi|zuHause> every time i try ECS, it sounds way too overengineered
20:48:39  <andythenorth> lets see if I broke my lovely save game :|
20:49:55  <George> frosch123: Not correct. If there is at least 1 vehicle waiting, production is x2. Periodicaly (depends on current production level), amount of vehicles decreases (it is broken ;)
20:50:37  <George> stockpile is limited - 1000-2000 vehicles depending on industry
20:50:45  <andythenorth> George: cunning ;)
20:50:54  <George> Yes, it is a micromanagement
20:52:11  <George> but it makes a player to think about his chains :roll:
20:52:48  <George> Anyway, you can not use any vehicles, main chains would work as well
20:53:07  <George> Vehicles only increase production
20:53:20  <George> Fertilisers are not the same
20:55:17  <Jolteon> offs.
20:55:23  <Jolteon> OpenTTD has a sense of humour
20:55:33  <George> but the concept is the same
20:55:39  <Jolteon> built the start of a network, left it for some years, come back, and it's placed a factory at the end of the trains tracks
20:55:43  <Jolteon> now I need to build around it
20:55:43  <Jolteon> ffs
21:00:43  * andythenorth has a suggestion for '2.0'
21:00:54  <andythenorth> smoke for RVs and ships :P
21:05:16  <Jolteon> Ships & RVs generally don't make much smoke.
21:05:25  <Jolteon> Well, ships sometimes give off alot of steam.
21:05:35  <Jolteon> but RVs only give off steam/smoke if their engine is about to give in.
21:05:37  *** enr1x [~kiike@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:06:21  <andythenorth> Jolteon: umm.  no in both cases
21:06:41  <Jolteon> Umm, yes in both cases.
21:06:59  <Jolteon> If your vehicle is giving off a noticable amount of smoke, you need to get it to a mechanic, fast.
21:07:22  <andythenorth> Jolteon: if your steam ship is*not* giving off much smoke, you need to get some fuel in it quick ;)
21:07:22  <Jolteon> Vehicles should only produce steam, and it should only be largely noticable on cold mornings.
21:07:40  <Jolteon> If it produces smoke, you're about to blow up your engine.
21:08:15  <andythenorth>
21:08:31  <andythenorth>
21:09:17  <Jolteon> Thats a tractor
21:09:20  <Jolteon> and a very old looking one.
21:09:41  <Jolteon> and the other is a digger.
21:09:50  <Jolteon> Both of which have powerful engines so do.
21:09:56  <Jolteon> You did not specify large heavy operating machines
21:10:02  <Jolteon> Therefore I presumed you meant buses and such.

22:13:30  * vargadanis is here for the first time
22:13:42  <Nite_Owl> Welcome
22:13:51  <vargadanis> thx :)
22:14:19  <vargadanis> soo... noobie questions.. how do I clear the tracks if a train accident happened? O_o
22:14:59  <__ln__> by waiting
22:15:12  <vargadanis> haha lol ok
22:15:21  <vargadanis> should have tought of that
22:15:37  *** enr1x [~kiike@] has joined #openttd
22:15:52  <vargadanis> one more... is there maybe some good description with examples on how the traffic lights on train tracks work and why? O_o kinda confused by them
22:16:07  <Rubidium> vargadanis:
22:16:52  <vargadanis> are you serious? O_o wow book on tracks for ttd
22:17:50  <vargadanis> ohh ehh.. not an actual book lol making a fool of myself here :)
22:17:51  <Nite_Owl> the OpenTTD wiki is also good
22:18:22  <Nite_Owl>
22:18:34  <Nite_Owl> and search for signals
22:20:01  <Nite_Owl> pay particular attention to 'path signals' as they are the most useful
22:22:28  <vargadanis> Nite_Owl, well I was kinda confused by the description on the wiki page...
22:22:41  *** Chillosophy [] has joined #openttd
22:23:22  <Nite_Owl> experimentation works wonders
22:24:19  <Nite_Owl> start a game you never intend to really play out and just fiddle with signals and sending lots of trains through them
22:25:47  <Nite_Owl> the main thing with path signals is to remember to only place them were it is safe for a train to stop without blocking other trains
22:26:51  <vargadanis> yup
22:27:04  <vargadanis> i tend to cause mass blockades :)
22:27:48  <Nite_Owl> in other words never place them at the direct exit of a junction - always leave enough space for the train length to clear the junction

22:58:19  <vargadanis> is there maybe a higher resolution tile set for openttd? I think - but might be mistaken - 8bpp tiles by default, right?
22:58:41  <Yexo> 8bpp/32bpp has nothing to do with the resolution
22:58:58  <Yexo> there is a patch on the forum that adds 2 extra zoom-in levels
23:03:21  <vargadanis> is it than the color depth that is used in the game?
