00:59:29  <argkde4> is there some kind of option that causes a click of an industry's "Location" button to "fly" to the location instead of jump?
01:00:01  <SmatZ> argkde4: smooth scrolling
01:00:14  <SmatZ> somewhere in GUI settings
01:00:18  <argkde4> heh
01:01:19  <argkde4> ok, found it. yuck.
01:03:32  <argkde4> it should scroll both axes at the same time, not one then the other. very disconcerting
01:04:29  <SmatZ> 				w->viewport->scrollpos_x += Clamp(delta_x / 4, -max_scroll, max_scroll);
01:04:31  <SmatZ> 				w->viewport->scrollpos_y += Clamp(delta_y / 4, -max_scroll, max_scroll);
01:04:52  <SmatZ> it scrolls both axes
01:05:27  <argkde4> i don't really know what its doing, because it does it very fast.. but it seems to move first left, then up
01:05:35  *** Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:06:01  <argkde4> does it have a "very slow" test mode? :)
01:06:15  <SmatZ> I think you are wrong, but if you think you are righ, open a bugreport :)
01:06:27  <SmatZ> the smaller map, the slower move
01:10:08  <argkde4> works-for-me... when off :)
01:12:06  <argkde4> its probably just an optical illusion caused by the items on the map

06:18:07  <planetmaker> moin
06:18:35  <planetmaker> <-- does that look about alright, Rubidium andythenorth Ammler ?
06:21:09  <argkde4> unasked for opinion: my sense of symmetry needs some space beneath the southwest/southeast buttons :)
06:21:47  <planetmaker> every opinion is welcome. And you're perfectly right
06:22:54  <argkde4> and the generate button might as well be centered
06:23:10  <planetmaker> I thought about that but decided against.
06:23:26  <planetmaker> First think I look to finish something is in the corners
06:23:29  <argkde4> because of its size, it makes the box look lopsided to me
06:24:06  <planetmaker> but it could well span the whole width. But that looks a bit stupid, too
06:24:34  <ccfreak2k> planetmaker, why are three buttons on the top pressed?
06:24:48  <planetmaker> that's mimicing tabs
06:24:53  <planetmaker> the active one isn't
06:25:19  <ccfreak2k> If map is the currently selected tab, I think they need to be inverted.
06:25:20  <argkde4> and a nitpick.. the "pressed" highlight of the AI button looks as if its wider than the box
06:25:30  <argkde4> ccfreak2k: me too
06:26:00  <planetmaker> ccfreak2k: a tab should IMHO blend in with what it relates to. Reverting pressed / unpressed does exactly the opposite
06:26:44  <ccfreak2k> It doesn't actually look like a tab, though.
06:26:47  <ccfreak2k> It looks like a button.
06:26:49  <planetmaker> and yes, the AI button seems to extend 1px to the right. Which I think is a window system glitch
06:27:07  <Arkenklo> !help
06:27:12  <Arkenklo> names
06:27:31  <planetmaker> so I guess I should get rid of the separation line between main panel and button?
06:27:33  <argkde4> yeah, the tab should have the same background color as the rest of the panel, however in that case it needs to lose the separator between the "tabs" and the rest of the box
06:27:45  <Arkenklo> the wiki is mucked up, what's the public server address?
06:28:16  <Arkenklo> oh sorry btw, wrong channel :)
06:28:53  <dihedral> Arkenklo: the point of a wiki (no matter where it is) is mostly that users (e.g. YOU) can also 'un'-muck it
06:28:56  <dihedral> ^^
06:28:59  <argkde4> planetmaker: the AI button might be one pixel too large
06:29:20  <planetmaker> argkde4: yes. But it's automatically sized...
06:29:28  <argkde4> planetmaker: ah, ok
06:29:40  <dihedral> planetmaker: northwest / southwest buttons need to be moved over some pixels to be aligned
06:30:00  <ccfreak2k> dihedral, even if he wanted to, it's pretty clear that he couldn't quite yet as he lacks the necessary information to do so.
06:31:04  <Arkenklo> dihedral: I can't un-muck php errors
06:31:11  <dihedral> ah LOL
06:31:23  <dihedral> hehe

09:43:05  <dihedral> the lower one? :-P
09:43:25  <dihedral> though the wording in the active tab could do with some more padding
09:43:45  <planetmaker> yes, they do
09:43:51  <planetmaker> But that's a separate issue
09:44:00  <dihedral> ^^
09:46:14  *** heffer [] has joined #openttd
09:47:40  <andythenorth> planetmaker: do you know how much layout control there is resp. menus and their labels?
09:48:01  <andythenorth> the map gen screen would be better with labels aligned right
09:48:32  <planetmaker> arbitrary layout is nearly possible. But why labels right? I read ltr
09:49:20  <andythenorth> empirically, labels aligned along the left edge are the worst layout for forms / dialogs
09:49:39  <andythenorth> the best layout for commonly used forms is labels aligned right edge.
09:50:12  <andythenorth> graphic designers don't like it because they think it looks weird.  It also has higher cicade times because the line start is harder to acquire.  but overall it works
09:50:26  <andythenorth> look at any form in the OS X system preferences :)
09:51:02  <andythenorth> the best form layout for hardly-used forms is actually labels above the controls.  This looks awful, but for some reason proves the fastest to use in testing :o
09:51:08  <planetmaker> hm... andythenorth there it varies

09:54:41  <andythenorth> planetmaker:
09:54:53  <andythenorth> which implies my argument is wrong, but I have the rest of the book :)
09:55:19  *** lasershock [] has joined #openttd
09:55:29  <andythenorth> when we are familiar with something (like the map gen), we actually read the words on the form controls, not their labels, and then the left edge is just distracting

15:50:22  <Mazur> ' to for a long vowel, ` for shortened.
15:50:34  <glx> not really
15:50:34  <planetmaker> rather for a different kind of e
15:51:42  <glx> but a and à use the same sound (it's just a grammatical thing)
15:51:59  <planetmaker> hm... what is it?
15:52:19  <planetmaker> deux pomme à douze kilo ;-)
15:53:17  <glx> which is not the same as "deux pomme a douze kilo" ;)
15:53:31  <glx> "a" being a verb then
15:53:43  <planetmaker> ah... rrrrright :-)
15:54:45  <glx> and in this case the sentense has no sense

15:56:11  <Mazur> Two apples have 12 kilo.
15:56:16  <planetmaker> It wasn't meant to be an entire sentence. Rather like "J'ai 2 pomme à 12 kilo"
15:56:22  <Mazur> Two apple have 12 kilo.

17:38:10  <Alberth> hai pm
17:38:55  <planetmaker> can you borrow me a bit of your time? I'm trying to solve a GUI problem... but I fail to see where I miss something
17:39:12  <planetmaker>
17:39:15  * Alberth looks at the time supply
17:39:21  <Alberth> ok, can do :)
17:39:24  <planetmaker> :-)
17:40:09  <planetmaker> I tried to layout where I'm stuck in those two postings. And I wonder why the 2nd diff displays the button state and the first not
17:40:33  <planetmaker> I define a stacked widget
17:40:45  *** Eddi|zuHause2 is now known as Eddi|zuHause
17:40:50  <planetmaker> if I make the buttons part of that stacked one... I get the results I don't understand
17:41:13  <planetmaker> If I declare the button row out of that scope... it works. But the visual result is not quite what I like to achieve
17:42:07  <Alberth> I should try seperate_buttons.diff ?
17:42:43  <planetmaker> genmap.diff is what I don't understand
17:42:54  <planetmaker> separate_buttons.diff is what I do understand

17:59:45  <Alberth> I am a bit surprised it works at all
18:00:53  <planetmaker> :-D
18:01:03  <Alberth> At different planes you use the same  enum values for the widgets.
18:01:57  <planetmaker> should it be different ones?
18:02:13  <Alberth> it was not intended to be used that way, and I thought you'd get a big fight about the pointer in the widget array
18:02:53  <Alberth> yes, each NWidget() that you make should have a unique index.
18:03:15  *** theholyduck [~holyduck@] has joined #openttd
18:03:27  <planetmaker> hm, ok, so I basically would need to define it three times, once for each plane where gets displayed?
18:03:45  <planetmaker> I'll try that :-)
18:04:16  <Alberth> that should work, I think
18:04:29  <planetmaker> thank you so much :-)
18:04:42  <Alberth> you can move the WWT_PANEL out of the NWID_SELECTION
18:05:29  <planetmaker> hm, yes :-)
18:05:32  <Alberth> and use a NWID_VERTICAL for the first one :)
18:05:58  <Alberth> I like the effect that you managed to create
18:06:27  <planetmaker> which of the screens? :-) The one which I like (with the seamless tabs)?
18:07:10  <Alberth> the first screenshot yes
18:07:54  * Alberth ponders whether there is a simpler way
18:08:13  <planetmaker> hm, my idea originally is to have the non-active buttons shown in a pressed state, so that they optically differ from the back plane.
18:08:25  <planetmaker> But that's then just a line per button to decide that after all
18:08:55  <planetmaker> [20:05]	<Alberth>	and use a NWID_VERTICAL for the first one :) <-- you referred to which widget there actually?
18:09:29  <Alberth> the first panel, as it contains more than one sub-widget
18:10:12  *** Dred_furst [] has joined #openttd
18:10:14  <planetmaker> Yes... both vertically and horizontally. Is it better to have them explicitly vertically aligned?
18:10:43  <Alberth> WWT_PANEL has an implicit NWID_VERTICAL inside
18:11:04  <Alberth> + drawing of the edges :)
18:12:17  <Alberth> How scary solution do you want?
18:12:29  <planetmaker> so what advantage is there to move that out of NWID_SELECTION and then introducing an NWID_VERTICAL ?
18:12:42  <planetmaker> I don't mind scary solutions ;-)
18:13:00  <Alberth> A very creepy one would be to change the type of the button widget to a text or a label widget
18:13:03  <planetmaker> I mean... it's going to get really scary once adv. settings and newgrf GUI get included :-P
18:13:13  <planetmaker> Alberth: yes, Label :-)
18:14:07  <Alberth> (08:14:46 PM) planetmaker: so what advantage is there to move that out of NWID_SELECTION and then introducing an NWID_VERTICAL ? <-- ok, perhaps the advantage is not that big

18:14:34  <Alberth> evening andythenorth
18:16:03  <andythenorth> did I miss anything? :)
18:16:14  <planetmaker> not really
18:16:25  <planetmaker> Alberth: what would be the advantage, even if it's small?
18:17:11  <planetmaker> besides... yes, the active tab is - as I envision it - not drawn by a button but by a label instead
18:17:25  <planetmaker> I just figured out that there's a label widget after I posted those diffs :-)

18:17:39  <andythenorth> planetmaker: fun with tabs?
18:17:41  <Weeknie> Hi all*
18:17:45  <planetmaker> But the inactive ones need to be somewhat distinguishable from the one being active
18:17:52  <planetmaker> andythenorth: yes. And it's going to work :-)
18:18:12  <Alberth> planetmaker: I was thinking to move the buttons out of the selection too
18:18:20  <andythenorth> looks very promising....think they need some more graphical thought :o
18:18:31  <Alberth> in that case you need a background behind the label
18:18:35  <Rubidium> hi Weeknie
18:18:56  <planetmaker> Alberth: ok... and then I still need to change them depending upon what is selected
18:19:14  <planetmaker> But I mainly want it seamless with the main display
18:19:31  <planetmaker> IMHO that gives the best clue as to what is going on there :-)

18:21:24  <planetmaker> Alberth: can I hide a widget completely?
18:21:25  * andythenorth modifies the newgrf gui to see if it works at 320x200
18:21:50  <andythenorth> the answer will be no
18:21:52  <planetmaker> this->SetWidgetInvisible()?
18:21:59  <andythenorth> everyone wants a fricking pony
18:22:34  <Alberth> completely hiding, either with a stacked widget, and selecting another display plane
18:22:53  <andythenorth> I did design my newgrf mockup to be smaller....but
18:23:03  <Alberth> or keeping a flag about its size, and calling ReInit() to rebuild the widget sizes
18:23:35  <planetmaker> hm... sounds like the current solution with them on the same plane is easier than re-building everything
18:23:52  <andythenorth> so let me understand....the newgrf lists need to be 290px to avoid truncation (including scrollbar).  And two of them are supposed to fit into 320px.  Seems like a basic failure of arithmetic :P
18:24:02  *** fonsinchen [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:24:08  <Alberth> NWidgetCore has a disp_flags enum. Perhaps you could add a flag for a button to not draw the bottom part
18:24:40  <andythenorth> the current newgrf GUI is 300x275, and twice as much information is supposed to fit into 320x200px??
18:24:41  <planetmaker> hm... that might be interesting.

18:29:10  <Weeknie> em, what's supposed to be bad about it?
18:29:22  <Weeknie> The lenght versus width is a little odd, but well:P
18:31:35  <andythenorth> ok, so the tabs....I might be worrying about nothing, but if we make the 'selected' state look like the 'up' state of every other button in the game, we might baffle players a little?

18:49:52  *** Guest631 [~George@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:51:53  <Alberth> One of the better solutions is probably to make a new widget type
18:54:15  *** yorick [] has joined #openttd
18:54:31  <Alberth> a tab-button widget is simpler than a tab-bar widget, I think. However is a number of tab-button widgets enough to make a tab-bar?
18:55:59  <Alberth> you could also make both
19:00:26  <planetmaker> Alberth: properly drawn tab button widgets would suffice, I think
19:02:41  <planetmaker> [20:58]	<andythenorth>	[20:31:35] ok, so the tabs....I might be worrying about nothing, but if we make the 'selected' state look like the 'up' state of every other button in the game, we might baffle players a little? <-- I don't think it applies here really
19:03:05  *** welshdragon [~welshdrag@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
19:03:06  <planetmaker> as the active tab description integrates seamless into what it displays
19:05:55  <andythenorth> planetmaker but the other buttons look like the 'pushed' state of other buttons....
19:05:58  <andythenorth> I think it's resolvable
19:06:04  <andythenorth> it just needs a little thought :)
19:06:16  <andythenorth> I was working on a interrupted
19:07:34  <andythenorth> compare station building dialog buttons for's clear which is selected and which is active
19:07:57  * andythenorth thinks
19:08:28  <planetmaker> <-- if you look at that I think it's quite clear what is active and what not
19:10:29  <andythenorth> :)
19:11:01  <andythenorth> but the other tabs look like the 'down' state for nearly every other button in the game, which says to me 'not a button I can click'
19:11:10  * andythenorth is trying not to be helpful no argumentative
19:12:42  <planetmaker> andythenorth: so... re-colour the buttons? Or not recess them at all and do it like
19:13:10  <planetmaker> which in all honesty is the easiest solution ;-)
19:13:29  *** KouDy [] has joined #openttd
19:13:31  <andythenorth> yes, that one is not 100% pretty, but it's more usable
19:14:21  <andythenorth> I need to fool around in photoshop to find an 'ideal' solution that works with current style, but might turn out to uncodable :)
19:18:05  <andythenorth> planetmaker: this is my first step.  It has various problems, but it gets the right 'feel' for tab buttons

19:19:25  <planetmaker> andythenorth: good idea to invert colours...
19:19:28  <planetmaker> hello Darkdjinn
19:19:46  <Darkdjinn> when you make a new train station and want to build trans there is no new wecles more then diesel train
19:19:46  <andythenorth> planetmaker: it's mostly about making the highlight / shadows appear correctly in the layer depths
19:20:01  <planetmaker> andythenorth: that's feasable. I'll play with that
19:20:09  <andythenorth> I'll try a few more variations
19:20:18  <Darkdjinn> i would like to know why there is just 1 train to build and not the older ones or more new ones at that current year
19:20:48  <planetmaker> Darkdjinn: you might want to electify your tracks

19:25:53  <Darkdjinn> i have another question about the AI's
19:27:33  <planetmaker> <-- andythenorth
19:27:44  <planetmaker> that's the female colour scheme, I have to admit.
19:27:59  <andythenorth> definitely more usable
19:28:13  <planetmaker> yes, I agree, it's better
19:28:27  <andythenorth>
19:28:49  <andythenorth> that's a bit more complex (don't miss the changes in the shading at the lhs / rhs window edges
19:29:25  <andythenorth> I think the other route might be better use of time & effort
19:29:30  <planetmaker> that's not really more complex. Actually it's just what I had in the very beginning - with a tiny bit space left and right of the buttons.
19:29:33  <planetmaker> I can live with that
19:29:35  <planetmaker> quite well
19:29:44  *** Coco-Banana-Man [] has joined #openttd
19:29:52  <andythenorth> but the shading and things might be fiddly to achieve?

19:30:18  <planetmaker> hm
19:30:20  <andythenorth> yes, to make it appear recessed, not forward
19:31:02  <andythenorth> let me try something simpler to achieve
19:31:55  <planetmaker> andythenorth: changing the border colour is again... something substantially more intrusive
19:32:11  <planetmaker> hm... any hint where the colours are defined?

20:31:17  <Alberth> let alone edit it :p
20:32:30  <Alberth> also, I am told there are several 100s of grfs typically, not something you want to search through manually
20:33:23  <planetmaker> they serve no other purpose than adding them as headings to the active newgrf list

21:02:37  <planetmaker> and 0 will be an acceptable value, I assume

21:04:42  <andythenorth> my mock up only uses 5 shades of should use more but I cheated on the highlights/shadows
21:05:19  <planetmaker> andythenorth: the point is, if I want to use a lighter shade for everything, I'd have to define a new widget (with a different colour mode) for everything
21:05:30  <planetmaker> that's feasable - but doesn't sound like a sane idea
21:05:33  <argkde4> O_o
21:05:39  <argkde4> and this is better than the old way? :)

21:05:44  <planetmaker> argkde4: yes
21:06:18  <andythenorth> planetmaker: I had a feeling this might be difficult...
21:06:28  <planetmaker> the current way has a certain colour palette handed and defines colours from that depending upon the state of the widget
21:06:57  <planetmaker> quite easy. But if you want to re-work the whole colour scheme. Alas. That's that you have to re-define all colours
21:07:01  <andythenorth> maybe I should start reading the code....but not tonight :)
21:07:11  <andythenorth> and my C++ is...dangerous
21:07:20  <planetmaker> Not much needed ;-)

21:10:28  <andythenorth> that's very close to what's needed
21:10:49  <andythenorth> instead of pink....try the dark brown used for the shadows in that version?
21:10:53  <andythenorth> (for the panel)
21:10:57  <planetmaker> mockups are boring, if I can play with the real thing ;-)
21:11:25  <planetmaker> hm... even darker?
21:11:25  <andythenorth> that's how I feel about CSS usually
21:12:11  <andythenorth> it will be too dark for my taste, but it will provide the correct layering

21:14:43  <Zuu> which are the corner controls?
21:14:45  <andythenorth> planetmaker:
21:15:11  <argkde4> the four buttons.. northeast northwest southeast southwest
21:15:27  <andythenorth> he's right :)
21:15:42  <andythenorth> but layout tweaks can come later...
21:16:05  <argkde4> oh come now, you're using photoshop for this aren't you? :)
21:16:16  <andythenorth> planetmaker: if you can achieve that shading it's a good win
21:16:59  <planetmaker> it could be feasable. I just need to define a new panel
21:17:13  <andythenorth> If you can use string code 94 (or equiv) for the text on selected tab, even better
21:17:18  <andythenorth> 94 is nfo code
21:17:22  <andythenorth> dunno about in game
21:17:23  <planetmaker> currently I play with using other colours
21:18:54  <Zuu> andythenorth: If you just want to play around with the widget tree, I don't think you really need much C++ knowledge.
21:19:35  <Zuu> It is quite simple as long as you get to know the nested widgets system.
21:20:11  <Zuu> There is probably some hints at the wiki. I know I've added stuff at the wiki when I've done new things not in the wiki.

21:24:17  <andythenorth> Ammler: can you identify what makes the difference?
21:24:20  <Ammler> because of the boarder maybe
21:24:59  <Ammler> there is a tiny line on left and right boarder
21:25:12  <Ammler> which isn't in the screen, but on the mockup
21:25:46  *** Fixer [~uzver@] has left #openttd []

21:27:06  <andythenorth> that's how the game does it by default for this sort of situation no?
21:27:11  <Ammler> well, I think, a boarder is needed anyway
21:27:15  *** Adambean [] has quit [Quit: Gone fishing]
21:27:40  <planetmaker> andythenorth: no. Same colour, if the same colour scheme is chosen
21:28:15  <planetmaker> <-- like there
21:28:46  <andythenorth> same as no?
21:28:51  <andythenorth> just a different colour?
21:29:03  <andythenorth> all I did was fill the pink to another shade
21:29:15  <Ammler> what if you swap the colors of the tabs
21:29:46  <Ammler> the active part is like the title bar
21:29:49  <planetmaker> andythenorth: I mean to reverse colours of the panel and the tab buttons
21:29:57  <Ammler> the inactive have something else
21:30:34  <planetmaker> <-- basically like that with dark buttons
21:30:48  <Ammler> yes
21:30:52  <Ammler> that looks good
21:31:24  <andythenorth> planetmaker: you could try it....I think you'll have trouble with highlights/shadows
21:31:38  <andythenorth> but perhaps I misunderstand :0
21:32:07  <planetmaker> Like my last screen I linked. But not light buttons but darker ones
21:32:17  <Ammler> "Gameplay Settings" looks like it will issue translation glitches...
21:32:20  <planetmaker> that's moderately easy
21:32:25  <andythenorth>
21:32:39  <planetmaker> exactly, andythenorth
21:32:51  <andythenorth> it will work
21:32:56  <andythenorth> it's not my preference
21:32:58  <andythenorth> but it works
21:33:09  *** fonsinchen [] has joined #openttd

21:33:31  <andythenorth> I prefer this
21:33:32  <andythenorth>
21:33:32  <Ammler> how will you add a 5th tab?
21:34:08  <ccfreak2k> A little weird, but it looks more like a tab now.
21:34:10  <planetmaker> andythenorth: then make the bottom panel the same colour as the tab
21:34:16  <Ammler> andythenorth: can you add a boarder?
21:34:24  <planetmaker> Ammler: no! ;-)
21:34:42  <andythenorth> planetmaker: one minute then
21:34:43  <planetmaker> Ammler: I just add a 5th tab
21:35:51  <andythenorth> planetmaker:
21:35:55  <Ammler> also you should try how it looks if the string of the 2nd tab is maybe double the length
21:36:41  *** StM [] has joined #openttd

21:37:25  <planetmaker> Ammler: Nothing wrong with that
21:37:53  <Ammler> not possible to add a boarder line?
21:38:10  <planetmaker> Like what?
21:38:16  <Ammler> like the mockup
21:38:21  <andythenorth> I prefer this it easy to make the window resizable?
21:38:21  <andythenorth>
21:38:39  <andythenorth> resize handle will destroy the sense that bottom panel is a button
21:38:44  <planetmaker> the window _is_ resizable
21:38:57  <andythenorth> it's not showing a handle?
21:39:03  <planetmaker> but not by the user :-P
21:39:05  <Ammler> andythenorth: also a boarder would do that
21:39:18  <planetmaker> but should be easy to add
21:39:24  <andythenorth> yes, but I can't recall any existing widgets/panels with borders :)
21:39:34  <andythenorth> so the drawing routine probably doesn't exist
21:39:40  <planetmaker> Ammler: I don't see a mockup with border
21:39:42  <andythenorth> drag handles are everywhere :P

21:41:00  <Ammler> hmm
21:41:11  <Ammler> maybe it just feels like
21:41:32  <Ammler> also the resize and the 2nd button might influence the feeling
21:41:50  <planetmaker> I guess we can add a bright border around everything
21:42:07  <andythenorth> I am fooling with a border.  I think it's a bit of work to get right
21:42:20  <andythenorth> if you're going for incremental improvements....I wouldn't bother yet
21:42:50  <andythenorth> plus, don't optimise the container too much until we have all the content for it (i.e. other 3 tab contents)

21:51:58  <andythenorth> planetmaker Ammler this is a hacky border.  It could be made to work visually, but I don't think it's necessary
21:51:59  <andythenorth>
21:52:06  <planetmaker> <-- andythenorth Ammler
21:52:16  <andythenorth> hmm
21:52:18  <planetmaker> :-)
21:52:24  <andythenorth> photoshop takes identical time to code :P
21:52:26  <planetmaker> different width are possible
21:53:00  <planetmaker> it needs then also an empty line above the tabs IMHO
21:53:05  <andythenorth> It would need to invert shadows / highlights to recess
21:53:09  <planetmaker> and it then amounts to wasting quite some pixels
21:53:12  <andythenorth> and yes, it would need a line
21:53:16  <andythenorth> and it wastes pixels
21:53:21  <andythenorth> or adds nice white space
21:53:31  <andythenorth> depending on your taste :P
21:53:56  <Ammler> planetmaker: wrong shadows
21:54:12  <Ammler> looks like buttons, instead intended
21:54:28  <planetmaker> it's intended as buttons...
21:54:39  *** Nite_Owl [] has joined #openttd
21:54:42  <Ammler> wrong
21:54:47  <andythenorth> he means on the tab panel
21:54:48  <Ammler> me ^
21:54:52  <Nite_Owl> Hello all
21:55:01  <andythenorth> he is indeed a Nite_Owl

21:55:20  * andythenorth ponders sleep
21:55:38  <andythenorth> planetmaker this looks like good progress....
21:55:43  * planetmaker strongly ponders sleep
21:56:03  <andythenorth> good night
21:56:08  <Nite_Owl> Hello andythenorth - actually late afternoon here but I get the point
21:56:11  <Ammler> planetmaker: invert the shadows and it is almost perfect
21:56:23  <Nite_Owl> Later andythenorth
21:56:25  * andythenorth votes for a version with sea in it
21:56:39  <Ammler> of the violet part
21:57:07  <Ammler> or andys, just smaller boarders
21:57:10  <planetmaker> <- that way?
21:57:23  <planetmaker> andythenorth: ineed it didn't look too bad ;-)
21:58:10  * andythenorth does one more mockup before bed
21:59:12  *** devilsadvocate [~devilsadv@] has joined #openttd
21:59:18  <Ammler> planetmaker: the violet part should look sinked in
21:59:33  <planetmaker> yeah, possible
21:59:59  <andythenorth>
22:00:15  <andythenorth> I don't think the borders are essential, but they do help tie it all together
22:00:35  <Ammler> andythenorth: and if they are very small (1-2 pixels)
22:00:50  <andythenorth> hmm
22:01:03  <andythenorth> they should be the width of other widgets...
22:01:06  * andythenorth looks
22:01:22  <Ammler> I guess, there are none
22:01:31  <ccfreak2k> andythenorth, definitely looks more like tabs now.
22:01:36  <Ammler> else you wouldn't need to try that much :-P
22:01:39  <andythenorth> industry window for example has 3 px border
22:01:42  <planetmaker>
22:01:46  <ccfreak2k> It's more obvious that the buttons are associated to window changes rather than some other action.
22:02:08  <andythenorth> planetmaker: that + top border, and you have most of what I've drawn :)
22:02:23  <planetmaker> yep. But that's for tomorrow :-)
22:02:29  <planetmaker> Have a good night folks
22:02:34  <andythenorth> good night
22:02:37  <planetmaker> but I agree. It was productive
22:02:39  <Nite_Owl> later planetmaker
