10:14:10  * andythenorth ponders
10:16:07  <andythenorth> when an industry is build in town and has an entrance or gate adjacent to a road tile, it would be nice if there was a road piece connected to the entrance
10:16:25  <andythenorth> players can build one, but it would be nicer if it was automatic
10:17:41  <andythenorth> having road pieces frequently check adjacent tiles is presumably bad?
10:17:52  <Noldo> propably
10:18:13  <andythenorth> what about having industry tiles set a bit in adjacent tiles when built
10:18:18  <andythenorth> ?
10:18:44  <Noldo> you need to do it by issuing a command I think
10:19:06  <andythenorth> and a cb on the industry tile when an neighbouring tile changes?  (to deal with destruction / consutruction)

10:19:29  *** welshdragon [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:19:33  <andythenorth> it would be useful for some station tiles as well
10:20:12  <andythenorth> Terkhen: you've done some work with road tiles?
10:22:02  *** LaSeandre [] has joined #openttd
10:22:03  *** LaSeandre [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:23:27  <Terkhen> a little; only with the building roads code
10:25:01  <andythenorth> I should try and write a proposal, but I don't know how road tiles work at all :)

10:35:43  *** Guest415 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:36:16  <Terkhen> and I don't know about industries and callbacks :)
10:38:56  <andythenorth> I kind of do.  A bit :)
10:41:02  <Terkhen> :P
10:43:01  <Eddi|zuHause> sounds like the wrong approach, though...
10:44:40  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: better route?
10:44:41  <Eddi|zuHause> as long as you can't actually drive into the industry, you might want to override the pavement graphics instead of placing a road bit
10:44:51  <andythenorth> yes, that would be interesting
10:44:55  <andythenorth> more work?
10:47:21  <fjb> I would not do anything to the road. Players interested in such details will place the road bit on their own. It is more important to align the entrance to a possible road and not to the border of a tile.
10:47:22  <planetmaker> that's IMHO the wrong approach ;-)
10:47:30  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm not afraid about the amount of work, i'm more afraid about runtime complexity, and newgrf collisions (i.e. if you add a road texture to your industry grf, it might not fit the road graphics by the road grf, especially with (potentially) upcoming roadstypes
10:47:41  <planetmaker> as industry messing with the road graphics will glitch in > 50% of the cases
10:47:59  <planetmaker> what Eddi says
10:48:36  <planetmaker> the proper approach - if road awareness is desired - is to check for existing road pieces and build the entrance accordingly
10:49:26  <Eddi|zuHause> might also want to check for rail pieces in that case
10:49:43  <planetmaker> :-)
10:49:45  <andythenorth> it's not just road awareness by the industry - it's also having the road tile 'connect' to the entrance
10:50:03  <andythenorth> road awareness I could do already :)
10:50:35  <planetmaker> well... don't provide your own road sprites :-)
10:50:39  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: what planetmaker means is: if the player places a road towards the industry, make the industry show the entrance at that place
10:50:40  <fjb> I would let the players build the connecting road bit.
10:51:18  <planetmaker> again: what Eddi says ;-)
10:51:59  <fjb> Wich is also not the best idea. Imagine parts of the industry jumping around when new roads are build.
10:52:14  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm not sure if the industries/houses can actually check the roadBITS yet, or only roadTILES
10:52:38  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: some houses do that already
10:52:59  <Eddi|zuHause> i've had houses change directions when i placed a depot
10:54:01  <andythenorth> maybe just let the players do it
10:54:19  <andythenorth> I think it sort of sucks, but not the biggest thing in the world :P
10:54:26  <andythenorth> players do it == no new code
10:54:33  <andythenorth> :D
10:55:15  <fjb> Players who care do it any way. Others just don't care.
10:56:00  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: well, like i said, i'd love to see rail entrances into industries
10:56:14  <andythenorth> what actual tracks?
10:56:18  <andythenorth> in the industry tiles?
10:57:02  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, if a rail is placed towards the industry, add rail tracks on the industry area, possibly leading into warehouses
10:57:33  <Eddi|zuHause> (obviously graphical only)
10:57:48  <andythenorth> isn't that what ISR is for? :o
10:57:52  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, question is: which types of rail?
10:57:59  *** Klanticus [] has joined #openttd
10:58:21  <andythenorth> I've left gaps in some FIRS industries to support routes 'inside' them
10:58:24  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: generic ones.
10:58:29  <andythenorth> narrow guage?
10:58:32  <andythenorth> electrified?
10:58:35  <andythenorth> third rail?
10:58:39  <andythenorth> UKRS finescale?
10:58:41  *** KenjiE20 [~KenjiE20@] has joined #openttd
10:58:49  <andythenorth> ISR is the solution :)
10:58:57  * andythenorth wishes we had the source to ISR available
10:59:05  <andythenorth> it's not in the zip and I just missed it?
10:59:05  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: if the graphics don't match, the player can opt to not build such a connection
10:59:29  <planetmaker> andythenorth, you can ask for it. They MUST provide it.
10:59:32  <planetmaker> It's GPL.
10:59:40  <andythenorth> I know.  I'll pm mart3p
11:00:00  <planetmaker> I fear though that the source is somewhat a de-compiled newgrf.
11:01:03  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, I guess that's then a fancy for something > 1.0
11:01:52  <andythenorth> planetmaker: I hope it's more than that :P
11:01:58  <andythenorth> shame otherwise

13:12:28  * andythenorth ponders windmills
13:13:50  <Eddi|zuHause> pre-industrial water mills might be interesting, but only in scenarios that contain rivers...
13:14:15  <Eddi|zuHause> before the steam engine, water was the main source of power
13:14:33  <andythenorth> there's a windmill in FIRS
13:14:42  <andythenorth> the issue is that it needs to be consolidated with the bakery
13:14:59  <andythenorth> and the layout sizes are rather different :o
13:15:31  <andythenorth> I am defeated by patching the game to handle this with cb28
13:15:33  <Eddi|zuHause> a windmill shouldn't be significantly larger than a lighthouse
13:15:42  <andythenorth> exactly :)
13:15:45  *** Wolf01 [] has joined #openttd
13:15:51  <andythenorth> the bakery has 2x2 or large layouts
13:16:31  <andythenorth> the largest is something like 4x2
13:16:38  <Wolf01> hello
13:17:20  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm starting to think these early industries only make sense if you have production caps
13:18:56  <andythenorth> some have lower production ratios ;)
13:19:09  <andythenorth> but I'm finding them a bit irritating to produce
13:20:10  <andythenorth> they're small and it's hard to find source imagery
13:20:19  <andythenorth> :P
13:20:40  *** Phoenix_the_II [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
13:21:36  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: but that might be the wrong way round. industrial production tends to produce more "waste" than manual production, but the overall capacity is several magnitudes higher
13:22:22  <andythenorth> yes indeed, but can you propose a viable alternative solution in gameplay? ;)
13:23:17  <Eddi|zuHause> like i said, you can limit the output. like "can only process 120 items per month"
13:23:26  <andythenorth> 'stockpiling'
13:23:35  <andythenorth> stockpiling is almost universally loathed
13:23:43  <Eddi|zuHause> no, stockpile limit is incoming cargo
13:23:56  <Eddi|zuHause> i mean: still accept incoming cargo, but produce nothing
13:24:25  <andythenorth> I'd need alternative code for the 'turn off limits' parameter which would be demanded :o
13:24:35  <andythenorth> what would the alternative be?
13:25:09  <andythenorth> configurable limit using parameter?
13:25:17  *** robotboy [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:25:19  <andythenorth> i.e. 0->65k ?
13:26:28  <Eddi|zuHause> and this would be only for the small early manufacturing chains
13:26:33  <Eddi|zuHause> not for the later industrial chains
13:26:56  <andythenorth> why would the earlier ones be limited but later ones ~ infinite capacity
13:26:59  <andythenorth> ?
13:27:05  <andythenorth> I open to the idea btw
13:27:16  <Eddi|zuHause> there's an intrinsic game limit anyway
13:27:31  <andythenorth> planetmaker opinions ^
13:27:33  <andythenorth> ?
13:28:23  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, you want to limit the throughput?
13:28:34  <planetmaker> not a linear relation input -> output? Na...
13:28:35  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: in my imagination, the gameplay incentive for early startes would then be to reroute their existing transports to the larger industries once they apppear
13:28:37  <planetmaker> contra!
13:31:50  <planetmaker> It basically would mean that you again have to constantly re-arange your network
13:31:54  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: but that was the main problem in pre-industrial craftsmanship. one man can only do so much.
13:32:09  <planetmaker> Realism -/-> fun
13:32:34  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: yes, but unrealism --> useless duplication
13:32:44  <planetmaker> how so?
13:32:52  <planetmaker> where do you see a duplication?
13:33:17  <planetmaker> You could "just" upgrade the graphics over time, from say a manual forge to an industry
13:33:22  <planetmaker> using animation
13:33:35  <Eddi|zuHause> now that's an extremely silly idea
13:33:58  <planetmaker> It's gameplay wise an extremely silly idea to constantly force the player to swap the industry to deliver to
13:34:13  <Eddi|zuHause> a "manual" forge is much smaller than a steel mill
13:34:25  <andythenorth> forge is a bad example :)
13:34:31  <andythenorth> there will be a separate forge and steel mill
13:34:40  <andythenorth> grain mill is a better example :)
13:34:48  <andythenorth> hmm no actually
13:35:13  <andythenorth> the issue of production for early industry is being conflated with industry layouts question :)
13:37:16  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, but that is the only problem. And that is imho much less severe than swapping industries
13:37:19  <Eddi|zuHause> i just mean, a production cap would be a definite incentive to include newly created industries into the network
13:37:37  <andythenorth> so will better production ratio
13:37:40  <Belugas> hello
13:37:41  <andythenorth> I hope
13:37:46  <andythenorth> haven't tested it yet :P
13:37:56  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: there is no "swapping" involved. the old industry will still function the same way
13:39:14  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: mind you, we are talking about a time where the majority of transport was being done by horse carts
13:39:35  <Eddi|zuHause> so you need to create a new network for the upcoming railways anyway

13:43:07  *** dfox [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:44:09  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, exactly. And you basically want that the network constantly needs to look for the newest industry type where things can be dumped
13:44:15  <planetmaker> which is... boring
13:44:32  <planetmaker> it means I have to constantly revise the routes of my vehicles
13:44:40  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: there's not "constantly" a new industry type coming up
13:44:47  <planetmaker> still
13:44:56  <planetmaker> An industry should silently upgrade
13:45:05  <andythenorth> nah
13:45:07  <andythenorth> that won't happen
13:45:12  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: it's not worse than "constantly" a new engine type with a higher speed limit
13:45:22  *** rTypo [] has quit []
13:45:36  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, of course. That is easily solved by autoreplace. Two clicks. Done. Network wide
13:46:02  <planetmaker> Changing all orders to a new steel production plant for the dozens of ore transports: great pain
13:46:13  <andythenorth> planetmaker: that's what will happen for steel
13:46:15  <andythenorth> for certain chains, there will arrive new, (more efficient) destinations for cargo
13:46:19  * roboboywi leaves win3.11 for windows 7
13:46:25  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: if you don't want the industry chains to change, start in 1950
13:46:29  <andythenorth> the old ones will remain open
13:46:31  <Eddi|zuHause> or 2050
13:46:45  <andythenorth> rerouting is up to the player, it's an option
13:47:11  <planetmaker> helau to micromanagement in a screwed up time line
13:47:16  <andythenorth> we won't close any old industries (except maybe a special case...guano mine)

13:48:05  <planetmaker> whatever it is, I strongly like to discourage production caps.
13:48:09  <andythenorth> me too :)
13:48:23  <planetmaker> Efficiency is a point which might give incentive.
13:48:30  <andythenorth> cap will inevitably create a mini-deluge of requests for a parameter
13:48:35  <andythenorth> it happened once already with supplies
13:48:55  * andythenorth applies 'go see' method, rather than arguing in abstract
13:49:02  * andythenorth -> TT Foundry site
13:49:26  <Eddi|zuHause> there's nothing wrong with planning this parameter in advance ;)
13:49:59  <Eddi|zuHause> i just mean, production caps would be something less annoying than stockpile limits, but still effective.
13:50:13  <planetmaker> production efficiency is IMHO enough
13:50:21  <andythenorth> the only industry chain that is affected by this specific question is iron ore -> metal
13:50:37  <planetmaker> having a max. production as an option... well, if it makes people happy
13:50:45  <andythenorth> and maybe, if added, a lime works which would be early cement plant, but I can't be bothered with that :)
13:51:13  <andythenorth> I researched steel production.  Finery forges were significantly less efficient than bessemer and similar later furnaces
13:51:28  <andythenorth> so lower production ratio is valid for both gameplay and reality :)
13:51:30  <andythenorth> we all win :)
13:52:16  <andythenorth> that only leaves a new question I hadn't thought of: lower production (via limit or ratio) for industries in earlier centuries
13:52:26  <andythenorth> i.e. efficiency could increase over time
13:52:42  <andythenorth> I don't think it's necessary
13:53:07  <andythenorth> in early games, production will be limited by how many horse carts or ships can deliver
13:53:33  <andythenorth> and there won't be much primary production on a typical map as ENSP / FMSP won't be widely available, or quick to transport
13:53:52  * andythenorth ponders
13:54:41  <andythenorth> so for example, paper mill could be limited / inefficient in 843AD
13:54:54  <andythenorth> and uncapped / more efficient  by 1930

15:00:43  <planetmaker> :-D
15:01:26  * andythenorth needs to power some LEDs
15:01:32  <andythenorth> for Lego purposes
15:01:44  <andythenorth> connecting them directly to the battery box may be a bad strategy :P
15:01:55  <planetmaker> :-)
15:01:59  <planetmaker> Depends
15:02:09  <planetmaker> But I'd add some resistors
15:02:15  <Eddi|zuHause> LEDs tend to need a fixed voltage
15:02:26  <Eddi|zuHause> everything else is fairly irrelevant
15:02:41  <planetmaker> not quite. LEDs are current-driven
15:02:56  <planetmaker> which is the important thing there
15:03:01  <andythenorth> and I may connect several in series
15:03:10  * andythenorth finds electronics boring :P
15:03:17  <planetmaker> <-- andythenorth
15:03:30  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: hm.. that doesn't seem to match what i learned about LEDs
15:04:14  <glx> Eddi|zuHause: maybe but the important part is current not voltage :)
15:04:28  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, they're ohm elements. But the current mostly defines their brightness as their U-I curve is usually quite steep
15:05:00  <planetmaker> and over-current is what destroys them, not over-voltage ;-)
15:05:22  <planetmaker> if you ever get a current source ;-)
15:05:42  <Eddi|zuHause> but batteries are voltage-sources
15:07:11  <planetmaker> still, you want a current limitation for your LEDs. The voltage is not that important
15:07:38  <planetmaker> let's say: I tried ;-)
15:10:50  <planetmaker> <-- e.g. see there
15:11:03  <planetmaker> The permissible voltage range is HUGE compared to the permissible current range
15:13:01  <planetmaker> thus brightness in the usual LED lamps is usually controlled by a variable resistor where the minimum resistance gives the maximum permissible current for the max. voltage
15:13:16  <andythenorth> if there are one or two motors on the same circuit, do I need to consider that?
15:13:33  <planetmaker> depends.
15:13:41  <andythenorth> oh, and the power varies, not sure if by pulse or voltage
15:13:52  <planetmaker> you won't have constant illumination then, depending upon the motors' load
15:14:00  <andythenorth> but the lego trains have a range of available speeds...
15:14:22  <andythenorth> I think one of them uses pulse power to regulate speed, the other probably uses variable voltage
15:14:42  <planetmaker> LED + pulse is fine. Voltage variation... well. you have certain requirements there
15:15:13  <andythenorth> basically if the resistors are in series with the LEDs, the LEDs should be fine.
15:15:14  <andythenorth> ?
15:15:14  <planetmaker> LED + pulse is a nice way to actually determine brightness. Using that you can easily overdrive LEDs - for microseconds
15:15:32  <andythenorth> wonder what happens when the motor stalls.  That's normally a high current situation?
15:16:10  <andythenorth> ']
15:16:11  <planetmaker> depends upon your setup ;-)

15:28:42  <andythenorth> meh

15:29:36  <andythenorth>
15:30:13  *** roboboywi [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
15:31:46  <andythenorth> wonder if it's needed :P
15:32:26  <planetmaker> :-D
15:32:40  <planetmaker> well, no lifestock service in early times would be sad.
15:33:07  <planetmaker> Though I found an interesting quirk: not all road vehicle sets support early lifestock transports. Which was a bit of a hassle
15:34:12  <andythenorth> I think it's needed
15:34:16  <andythenorth> I'm just not sure how to make it work
15:34:36  <andythenorth> also after a certain date, the Meat Packer should be located much closer to the livestock farming areas
15:35:23  <planetmaker> why?
15:36:08  <andythenorth> reality :P
15:36:24  <andythenorth> the days of long distance live animal transport are gone :)
15:37:02  <andythenorth> highly mechanised packing allowed abbatoirs to locate much closer to farms (also reducing transport cost and complying with animal welfare regulations)
15:37:34  <andythenorth> also, it would help reduce the regular demand to train set authors to provide high-speed cattle cars :P
15:38:16  <planetmaker> this game is about transport, though...
15:38:29  <andythenorth> trucks :)
15:38:50  <planetmaker> and then you enforce the meat packer close to a farm. And what do people do? Transport animals all across the map to the meat packer next to the other farm cluster
15:39:01  <planetmaker> Would be pointless to spend code on that ;-)
15:39:09  <andythenorth> yup
15:39:27  <andythenorth> I'm not going to do it.  I 'should', but I won't :P

15:49:37  <andythenorth> yup
15:49:50  <planetmaker> then do 1) :-)
15:50:00  <andythenorth> wholesale market also provides acceptance of fruit & veg
15:50:19  <planetmaker> there's nothing else before the meat packer?
15:50:29  <andythenorth> not for livestock
15:50:30  <planetmaker> why... not remove lifestock from the wholesale market
15:50:40  <andythenorth> could do tannery -> goods :0
15:50:41  <planetmaker> and have the 'meat packer' renamed to butcher. Or so
15:50:59  <andythenorth> could do 'stockyard & tannery'
15:51:43  *** dafkis is now known as davis
15:51:44  <planetmaker> would stockyard fit the thing in early times? But yes, that sounds not like a bad idea
15:52:01  <planetmaker> the wholesale market could still accept food, goods, vegies
15:52:15  <planetmaker> hm...
15:52:35  <planetmaker> it produces food. Milk
15:53:23  <planetmaker> the longer I think the more it duplicates the grocery / supermarket
15:53:36  <planetmaker> stockyard + tannery is better :-)
15:54:13  <andythenorth> planetmaker: the grocery / supermarket *accept* food :)
15:54:16  <planetmaker> the wholesale market as it's now (is it drawn?) could just be another layout for a supermarket
15:54:20  <planetmaker> andythenorth, yes :-)
15:54:23  <andythenorth> something has to produce it :)
15:54:34  <planetmaker> the stockyard ;-)
15:54:35  <andythenorth> the wholesale market currently is a food producer
15:54:48  <andythenorth> I'll try it
15:54:59  <planetmaker> could supermarkets accept fruits directly?
15:55:02  <andythenorth> leaves a question about destination for fruit + veg
15:55:04  <andythenorth> oh
15:55:06  <andythenorth> :)
15:55:22  <planetmaker> also, of course, the distillery

15:56:17  <planetmaker> port
15:56:23  <andythenorth> in some parts of the UK, cider was the staple food stuff for farm workers
15:56:29  <andythenorth> they didn't really eat
15:56:34  <planetmaker> :-D
15:57:13  <planetmaker> hm... and again we agreed to change industries :-P
15:58:03  <andythenorth> hmm indeed
15:58:28  <planetmaker> actually...: just rename the industry :-)
15:58:40  <planetmaker> question though is: what do they do with food?
15:58:46  <planetmaker> s/food/fruit/?
15:59:06  <andythenorth> not sure
15:59:20  <planetmaker> hm... Can you keep the layout of the industry?
15:59:34  <planetmaker> when doing wholesale market -> stockyard?
15:59:44  <andythenorth> well it's not drawn at all yet :)
16:00:12  <planetmaker> well. As long as the tile layout as it's currently coded remains valid, a change will not be fatal
16:00:26  <planetmaker> even if you change acceptance
16:00:30  <andythenorth> it's just a 2x2 square, which happens to be fine for a market
16:00:39  <andythenorth> but anyway, I think we broke 0.4 compatibility some time ago :P
16:01:14  <planetmaker> did you? hm
16:01:29  <planetmaker> 2x2 is also fine for a stockyard...
16:01:40  <planetmaker> at least as _one_ layout ;-)
16:02:05  <andythenorth> I'm not sure both Meat Packer and Stockyard are justified
16:02:17  <andythenorth> I wonder about making them one and the same
16:02:30  <andythenorth> the acceptance and production ratios would be ok
16:02:50  <andythenorth> that could leave wholesale market as some kind of food processor for fruit + veg
16:02:56  <planetmaker> could be. Call it stockyard then :-)
16:03:21  <planetmaker> I always found 'meat packer' somewhat... dunno... not a nice name

16:13:51  <Eddi|zuHause> also, processors are optimised to cause as little current as possible
16:14:10  <Eddi|zuHause> because current == heat
16:14:50  <planetmaker> yes.
16:15:02  <planetmaker> But there's two things going in: the number of electrons as well as their speed
16:15:06  * andythenorth is baffled by fruit & veg :D
16:15:09  <Eddi|zuHause> current is caused by intrinsic capacities (e.g. parallel connections), and basically mean less processor speed

16:44:02  <Eddi|zuHause> there's probably an interesting field of research: the agriculture of Cuba after it's oil supplies from "brotherstates" ran dry in the 1990's
16:44:11  <planetmaker> Agriculture currently is nearly alway X->Y-(FOOD)->Shop
16:44:22  <andythenorth> the ethanol plant will adjust that
16:44:32  <andythenorth> I think that's kind of how rl works though also?
16:44:43  <planetmaker> and that them is exploited 7 times
16:44:48  <planetmaker> *theme
16:45:06  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: what's missing with food is a minimum requirement for towns in order to sustain themselves
16:45:11  <andythenorth> yup
16:45:16  <andythenorth> TownControl :)
16:45:27  <andythenorth> planetmaker: cotton / wool -> goods
16:45:42  * andythenorth lists farm cargos
16:45:42  <planetmaker> andythenorth, yes. the only exception
16:45:57  <planetmaker> frvg, cttn, grai, rsgr, lvst, milk, wool, fish
16:46:14  <andythenorth> livestock; fruit & veg; sugar, grain, milk -> food
16:46:20  <andythenorth> fish is from the sea ;)
16:46:25  <planetmaker> same thing ;-)
16:46:27  <andythenorth> but fish -> food
16:46:35  <andythenorth> wool / cttn -> goods
16:46:40  <andythenorth> hmm
16:46:43  <planetmaker> It applies to the theme X -> Y -> food
16:46:49  <andythenorth> xxx -> food does kind of dominate
16:47:05  <planetmaker> especially the arable farm has both chains X -> Y -> food
16:47:05  <Eddi|zuHause> industries producing livestock, wool or milk might be secondary industries requiring grain and frvg as input
16:47:06  <Belugas> fish -> oil -> medecine -> goods
16:47:29  <Belugas> fish -> skin -> clothing -> goods
16:47:43  <andythenorth> is the problem that food has no purpose?
16:47:51  <andythenorth> I don't really bother transporting it
16:47:57  <andythenorth> except in tropic
16:48:01  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, imho that's the main problem
16:48:18  <Eddi|zuHause> only mail is worse than that...
16:48:32  <planetmaker> Not really. But I'd like to see the agriculture line have some impact on the other parts, too
16:49:01  <planetmaker> to not have 7x exactly the same thing just differently named
16:49:26  <planetmaker> like for example adding wood to the tannery ;-)
16:50:05  <planetmaker> or oil seeds or fibre crops to the arable farm
16:50:16  <planetmaker> it gives a more integrated economy
16:52:27  <andythenorth> but ultimately most of the alternatives will just end in 'goods' no?
16:52:28  <planetmaker> and indeed the harbour could produce both, oil and FOOD ;-)
16:52:34  <planetmaker> andythenorth, yes
16:52:35  <andythenorth> do you bother transporting goods?
16:52:37  <andythenorth> I don't
16:52:40  <andythenorth> it's pointless :P
16:53:10  <planetmaker> I bother to transport things through the whole chain
16:53:17  <andythenorth> in fact all non-PAX town cargos are pointless
16:53:23  <planetmaker> And it's fun if the chain is not just two hops but branches
16:53:30  <andythenorth> I only transport goods if the vehicle sprites are fun :D
16:53:31  <planetmaker> That makes then other industries also interesting
16:53:56  *** avdg [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
16:54:10  <planetmaker> that argument is your usual killer. But that argument applies to any cargo
16:54:19  <andythenorth> I think (a) farm -> food cargos might be over-represented and (b) there is a fundamental problem with town cargos
16:54:20  <andythenorth> :)

16:58:45  <Belugas> yeah... always bills.. no checks...
16:58:56  <fjb> Yes. :-(

17:00:40  <andythenorth> planetmaker: I was thinking straw -> building materials (thatch)
17:01:07  <fjb> We would have to convince Irwe to draw a tax office.
17:01:40  <planetmaker> andythenorth, also an interesting thing. But straw is fibre crops

17:04:40  <fjb> New cargo: tax office terrorists.
17:05:01  <planetmaker> andythenorth, no, that would just introduce a completely new cargo.
17:05:15  <planetmaker> Fruit and fibre crops or oil seeds is fine enough for everything needed IMHO
17:05:34  <planetmaker> at least by cargo label. By name you might call the fibre crops differently. Straw, if you like
17:05:37  <Rubidium> maybe just consolidate a bit more: till you end with someones and stuff
17:05:46  <planetmaker> :-D
17:05:49  <andythenorth> I'm not 100% convinced on fibre crops.
17:05:58  <andythenorth> where do they go / what do they produce?
17:05:58  <planetmaker> oil seeds?
17:06:09  <Rubidium> delivering fibre to towns should increase the waste production of the town
17:06:10  <planetmaker> they go - as you proposed - to the building yard

17:11:20  <andythenorth> I would be leaving cargo chains alone for now
17:11:29  <andythenorth> I think there are too many farm->food cargos
17:11:35  <andythenorth> but I need to play a test game or so
17:11:41  <andythenorth> I haven't played FIRS for ages
17:12:08  <planetmaker> andythenorth, it could indeed go to the plastics plant. The industry would just need a new name
17:12:38  <planetmaker> And it's not a change which breaks anything. And that's what 1462 is about
17:12:47  <planetmaker> This is changing things which are not there
17:13:00  <planetmaker> And 'just' renaming them somewhat
17:13:50  <andythenorth> what would we rename?
17:14:22  <planetmaker> plastics plant does not sound right anymore, if it accepts firbre crops
17:14:31  <planetmaker> additionally
17:15:03  <planetmaker> it's a thing which produces 'stuff' :-P
17:16:07  <andythenorth> would we add fibre crops?
17:16:07  <planetmaker> it could produce packaging. It could produce paper. It could produce plastic boxes. It could produce plastic bags, it could produce jute fabric
17:16:21  <andythenorth> or replace something with fibre crops?
17:16:25  <planetmaker> well. That'd allow for some of the cross-talk I advocate :-)
17:16:38  <planetmaker> oh. raw sugar
17:16:47  <planetmaker> rwsg -> fibre crops
17:16:59  <andythenorth> so no sugar refinery?
17:17:04  <planetmaker> yes
17:17:06  <andythenorth> no sugar cane railways :P
17:17:17  <andythenorth> I was wondering if sugar was a step too far
17:17:23  *** Wolf01 [] has quit [Quit: Once again the world is quick to bury me.]
17:17:24  <planetmaker> you deleted the cane plantation anyway, did you?
17:17:33  <andythenorth> arable farm produces beet / cane
17:17:46  <planetmaker> yes. And it could instead much more likely produce fibre crops
17:17:51  <andythenorth> so sugar would have to be removed
17:17:55  <planetmaker> yep
17:18:03  <planetmaker> which... violates #1462 :-P
17:18:06  <planetmaker> still :-)
17:18:08  <andythenorth> no neat looking sugar refineries :P
17:18:18  <andythenorth> I like sugar :(
17:18:22  <planetmaker> Not drawn. So doesn't matter :-)
17:18:26  <andythenorth> I don't like the dominance of farm -> food
17:18:55  * fjb likes shugar refineries.
17:19:00  <andythenorth> could remove fruit + veg
17:19:01  <planetmaker> I don't mind that. But when I did farms in the last game I was missing a bit incentive to move also to the industrial sector
17:19:06  <planetmaker> this could provide this incentive
17:19:11  <planetmaker> no no.
17:19:24  <planetmaker> Distilleries have to stay
17:19:36  <andythenorth> can still accept grain
17:19:44  <andythenorth> fruit plantation would get canned though
17:19:44  <andythenorth> :P
17:19:56  <planetmaker> Yes. But just deleting that doesn't make it more interesting. The cross talk of industries is what is interesting
17:19:59  <planetmaker> at least some
17:20:08  <planetmaker> Deleting agriculture doesn't help there a single bit
17:20:22  <andythenorth> removing fruit and veg would allow mixed farm to produce fibre crops
17:20:26  <planetmaker> Then it would be dominated by furnances, aluminum plants and similar big buildings
17:20:39  <planetmaker> which are rather boring in comparison to the agriculture things
17:21:09  <andythenorth> shame farms can only produce 2 cargo types
17:21:25  <andythenorth> an arable farm might be producing 4-5 different useful types of crop
17:21:26  <planetmaker> I like fruits a lot :-)
17:21:31  *** Wolf01 [] has joined #openttd
17:22:33  <andythenorth> hmm
17:22:51  <andythenorth> cotton will be tropic only, produced by plantation
17:22:59  <andythenorth> sugar could also be produced by plantation
17:23:04  <andythenorth> arable farm could produce fibre crops
17:23:17  <andythenorth> sugar beet could be ignored in temperate etc
17:23:40  *** |Jeroen| [] has joined #openttd
17:24:08  <planetmaker> so sugar only in tropic via a plantation? Fine with me
17:24:20  <planetmaker> would allow for the beloved sugar refinery ;-)
17:24:28  <planetmaker> sub-cargo: candies
17:24:48  <andythenorth> no beets :P
17:25:07  <planetmaker> fine with me :-)
17:26:08  <fjb> We had a lot of shugar refineries here. So not only tropic. :-)
17:26:48  <V453000> fibre crops reminds me of ECS :(
17:27:08  <planetmaker> that doesn't matter. it can be called differently
17:28:27  <planetmaker> andythenorth, is fruit plantation also in the temperate? Yes afaik
17:28:40  <andythenorth> yes
17:28:45  <planetmaker> If so... then indeed the mixed farm could produce the fibre crops instead of fruit
17:28:50  <andythenorth> only climate-specific industry is cotton plantation
17:28:50  <planetmaker> and sugre would stay where it is
17:29:08  <planetmaker> question though: cargo slot availble?
17:29:13  <andythenorth> yes / no
17:29:22  <planetmaker> hm?
17:29:25  <andythenorth> I'd consider that an awful lot of farm cargos
17:29:38  <planetmaker> then look at your mines:
17:29:41  <andythenorth> although I suppose we could argue the same about 'mine cargos'
17:29:43  <andythenorth> hmm
17:29:49  <andythenorth> you thought the same :)
17:29:52  <planetmaker> copper, coal, clay, sand, gravel, bauxite
17:30:00  <planetmaker> ironore
17:30:02  <andythenorth> guano
17:30:02  <planetmaker> same thing
17:30:06  <planetmaker> if not more
17:30:14  <planetmaker> So if at all this makes farms more interesting
17:30:14  <andythenorth> no copper :)
17:30:42  <andythenorth> it's worth kicking at sugar a bit more
17:30:51  <andythenorth> and also, I would want a better name for fibre crops
17:31:04  <planetmaker> Hemp? ;-)
17:31:08  <andythenorth> I know what they are now, but I can't really picture them as a player
17:31:11  <planetmaker> But what is wrong with fibre crops?
17:31:24  <planetmaker> That's the correct naming
17:31:38  <andythenorth> I know, but it sounds odd
17:31:43  <planetmaker> not to me :-P
17:31:48  <andythenorth> no child draws a picture of a 'fibre crop farm'
17:31:49  <andythenorth> :)
17:31:57  <planetmaker> there's also no such thing
17:32:06  <planetmaker> but it's one thing farms do produce
17:32:09  <planetmaker> at least here
17:32:24  <andythenorth> cotton is a fibre crop
17:32:25  <andythenorth> hmm
17:32:40  <planetmaker> hm, is it? Ok :-)
17:33:03  <planetmaker> So... not Cotton but fibres?
17:33:09  <planetmaker> but same cargo label?
17:33:28  <planetmaker> could work
17:34:07  <andythenorth> hmm
17:34:13  <andythenorth> I don't like the name at all )
17:34:15  <andythenorth> :)
17:34:19  <planetmaker> :-)
17:34:32  <andythenorth> so they also go to the plastic plant?

17:50:07  *** lewymati [] has quit []
17:50:15  <planetmaker> eh? straw?
17:50:18  <andythenorth> straw was a major building material )
17:50:19  <andythenorth> :)
17:50:23  <andythenorth> it's a fibre crop
17:50:24  <planetmaker> organic fibres
17:50:29  <planetmaker> same cargo
17:50:30  <andythenorth> ah, but so are reeds and other crops
17:50:40  <Eddi|zuHause> straw and lime?
17:50:45  <planetmaker> ^
17:50:45  <andythenorth> well my problem was that straw should come from same place as grain
17:50:50  <andythenorth> but we can ignore that
17:51:19  <Eddi|zuHause> in the 15th century probably. bricks were already fairly common in the beginning of the industrial era
17:51:42  <planetmaker> andythenorth, then you have to swap cargos more.
17:51:53  <planetmaker> possible
17:51:58  <Eddi|zuHause> straw continued use in rural areas, especially for roofs
17:51:59  <planetmaker> but... not that good to do
17:52:12  <andythenorth> nah we'll just overlook the detail of straw
17:52:24  <planetmaker> but when you anyway broke compatibility already: then you can do that
17:52:43  <andythenorth> it's better to keep grain / sugar at the arable farm
17:52:48  <andythenorth> they are rotation crops
17:52:58  <planetmaker> :-)
17:53:10  <andythenorth> mixed farm can grow reeds :)
17:53:14  <andythenorth> or whatever
17:53:24  <andythenorth> still haven't solve acceptance of fruit & veg
17:54:11  <andythenorth> anyway, there's no valid industry to process natural fibres to building materials
17:54:28  <planetmaker> the constr. yard
17:54:40  <planetmaker> re fruits: go to distillery or shop
17:54:49  *** Adambean [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
17:54:52  <andythenorth> the builders yard doesn't process :)
17:54:54  <andythenorth> it just accepts
17:55:01  <andythenorth> forget straw :)
17:55:31  <andythenorth> what's the incentive to deliver fruit to shop?
17:56:00  <planetmaker> why not? I want healthy inhabitants
17:56:20  <andythenorth> but if you deliver to distillery, you get more cargo...
17:56:28  <planetmaker> yes
17:56:51  <planetmaker> but that's no real argument against the shortcut route either
17:57:28  <fjb> And planetmaker wants healthy inhabitants, not drunken ones.
17:57:42  <andythenorth> and does town growth need fruit & veg?
17:57:58  <andythenorth> in what ways are fruit & veg not food? :o
17:58:04  <planetmaker> fjb, let's say: provide them with something so that they can say, "but I ate this carrot! May I now empty these bottles?"
17:58:34  <planetmaker> andythenorth, they're an intermediate thing, too. As the distillery makes it food
17:58:49  <planetmaker> you can't have a farm produce food ;-)
17:58:53  <andythenorth> hmm
17:58:58  <andythenorth> milk -> shops?
17:59:05  <planetmaker> possible
17:59:09  <andythenorth> are 'eggs' livestock?
17:59:13  <planetmaker> no
17:59:25  <andythenorth> :D
17:59:44  <andythenorth> planetmaker: it's fun to figure this out, but meanwhile check your forum pms
18:00:12  <andythenorth> we have a new project to host on devzone :)
18:00:55  <planetmaker> nice. Yes, definitely. I'll see to it
18:01:22  <andythenorth> seems they have a build environment already
18:02:46  <planetmaker> yep
18:03:37  <andythenorth> planetmaker: are there too many sources of livestock?
18:03:49  <andythenorth> i.e. dairy farm, mixed farm, sheep farm
18:04:08  <planetmaker> do you think?
18:04:14  <andythenorth> 3 sources of livestock vs. 1 source of fruit & veg....makes me rethink what gets changed at mixed farm
18:04:21  *** ajmiles [] has joined #openttd
18:04:22  <andythenorth> not sure
18:04:37  <andythenorth> mixed farm is pigs + chickens :)
18:04:44  <andythenorth> a world without bacon and eggs?
18:05:08  <planetmaker> a mixed farm needs animals. Or it isn't mixed
18:05:23  <andythenorth> names can be changed :P
18:05:28  <planetmaker> :-P
18:05:42  <andythenorth> or fruit plantation could be 'market garden' and produce natural fibres also
18:05:58  <planetmaker> hm... not really IMHO
18:06:04  <andythenorth> farms offer many combination possibilities :)
18:06:20  <fjb> Random farms...
18:07:16  <andythenorth> considered it :)
18:07:23  <planetmaker> andythenorth, if you think that there's too much livestock: change mixed farm livestock to milk
18:07:31  <andythenorth> considered random cargo production at many industries.  always rejected though :)
18:07:46  <andythenorth> it was more that there might be too little fruit and veg?
18:08:03  <planetmaker> no. They're not that common
18:08:24  <planetmaker> Hm...
18:08:49  <planetmaker> no. Even though from a realism POV it might be nice, I think it's not a good idea
18:08:54  <andythenorth> so the only source of fruit and veg will be fruit plantation?
18:09:06  <andythenorth> is 'veg' even needed?
18:09:27  <andythenorth> how about Yet Another Farm Type :P
18:10:24  <planetmaker> skip fruit plantation and make it a farm ;-)
18:10:38  <planetmaker> fruit and vegetables farm :-P
18:11:00  <planetmaker> actually... no :-) I don't want further changes :-)
18:12:09  <andythenorth> 'natural fibres plantation'?
18:12:10  <andythenorth> :P
18:12:32  <andythenorth> shame the arable farm can't have 3 outputs
18:12:39  <andythenorth> or alternate different years :D
18:12:45  <planetmaker> :-D
18:14:16  <andythenorth> planetmaker: I think sugar has to go from temperate
18:14:27  <andythenorth> sugar beet is quite a specific cargo
18:14:38  <andythenorth> arable farm can produce natural fibers
18:15:03  *** Wolf01 [] has quit [Quit: Once again the world is quick to bury me.]
18:15:30  <andythenorth> sugar can be tropic only
18:15:49  <andythenorth> cotton will be available in all climates as natural fibers
18:15:53  <andythenorth> it's a fair switch
18:16:23  <Eddi|zuHause> what's wrong with sugar beet?
18:16:55  <andythenorth> nothing wrong with it, but planetmaker is arguing for natural fibers
18:16:58  <Eddi|zuHause> it's one of the main agricultural products here, next to wheat and rapeseed
18:17:07  <andythenorth> well something has to go somewhere :P
18:17:18  <andythenorth> or we recode industries to have n outputs (3 would do)
18:17:55  <andythenorth> so forest also produces natural fibres?
18:18:02  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, then you just made the case for oil seeds instead of fibre crops ;-)
18:18:15  <andythenorth> and papermill acceptance should be natural fibre instead of wood?
18:18:35  *** Wolf01 [] has joined #openttd
18:18:37  <planetmaker> not really...
18:18:40  <Eddi|zuHause> no...
18:18:46  * fjb wants ol seeds and yellow opengfx fields. :-)
18:19:02  *** Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:19:05  <planetmaker> fjb, draw them. I'll be happy about it! :-)
18:19:32  <andythenorth> can't we just have 'crops' ?
18:19:50  <andythenorth> it would be way simpler
18:19:55  <planetmaker> same as 'stuff dug out of earth'?
18:20:18  <andythenorth> farms produce: 'crops', 'livestock', 'milk', 'wool'
18:20:19  <planetmaker> one mining cargo. one farm cargo.
18:21:02  *** Progman [] has joined #openttd
18:21:06  * planetmaker doesn't want to overthrow everything
18:21:56  <andythenorth> I am serious about crops
18:22:10  <andythenorth> we have livestock, not sheep, cattle, pigs, chickens, horses
18:22:32  <Wolf01> lizards?
18:22:35  <fjb> We nedd horses to attract more girls to the game.
18:22:42  <andythenorth> ponies
18:23:32  <andythenorth> also 'crops' covers the issue that most farms grow several crop types in rotation to preserve fertile soil
18:24:35  <andythenorth> planetmaker: what do you think?
18:24:41  <planetmaker> hm...
18:24:49  <planetmaker> would make it quite boring :-)
18:24:53  <planetmaker> crops to the distillery
18:24:57  <planetmaker> crops to the supermarket
18:25:02  <planetmaker> crops to the textile plant
18:25:11  <andythenorth> hmm
18:25:12  <planetmaker> crops to the <whatever>
18:25:28  <andythenorth> but arguing grain / oil seeds / fibers / sugar is also a bit unsolvable
18:25:35  <andythenorth> unless we add more farm types
18:25:36  <andythenorth> :P
18:25:41  <planetmaker> it would cut 1/3 of the agriculture by what it feels like
18:26:23  <Eddi|zuHause> make the output cargo random each year ;)
18:26:27  <planetmaker> <planetmaker> andythenorth, so... to summarize: mixed farm produces fibres
18:26:27  <planetmaker> * fjb has no food problem, had a great meal two hours ago.
18:26:27  <planetmaker> <andythenorth> that eliminates a few boxes
18:26:27  <planetmaker> <planetmaker> fibres go to plastics plant
18:26:27  <planetmaker> <planetmaker> or to textile mill
18:26:28  <planetmaker> <andythenorth> yup
18:26:30  <planetmaker> <planetmaker> that's all ;-)
18:26:32  <planetmaker> <planetmaker> remove fruit from mixed
18:26:38  <planetmaker> :-)
18:26:49  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: not possible :P
18:26:51  <planetmaker> I really see no need for further changes
18:27:04  <andythenorth> output cargos can't be changed, there is no cb, action 0 prop only
18:27:56  <andythenorth> so leave sugar in temperate / arctic, no removal
18:28:02  <andythenorth> and forget oil seeds :P
18:29:09  <andythenorth> poop
18:29:18  <andythenorth> is wool a type of natural fibre?
18:29:30  <planetmaker> kinda
18:29:43  <V453000> can I have a feature request for FIRS please?

18:29:57  <V453000> I _NEED_ my headquarters to accept beer
18:30:02  <V453000> :p
18:30:41  <Eddi|zuHause> random fact: this year, during harvest season it rained a lot, so the wheat stayed on the fields way too long, so it can only be used as animal food. but due to russia (3rd biggest wheat exporter) cancelling all exports, the wheat price drastically increased, so even the "bad" wheat is worth more than the "good" wheat in usual years
18:30:56  <Alberth> unfortunately, headquarters is not an industry :p
18:31:09  <V453000> :(
18:31:29  <V453000> there could be HQ as an industry :p
18:31:41  <Noldo> Eddi|zuHause: and they cancelled the exports because on the fires
18:31:44  <Noldo> *of
18:32:37  <Alberth> I would expect that HQs are already available in NewGRF, in that case you should be able to make such a HQ
18:32:53  <andythenorth> coffee in FIRS?
18:32:54  <Eddi|zuHause> germany is one of the largest wheat importers
18:33:04  <Eddi|zuHause> like 80% of the wheat is imported
18:33:27  <andythenorth> rice?
18:33:47  <Alberth> in the japanese economy :)
18:34:14  <Alberth> coffee was recently suggested by RB iirc
18:34:41  * Rubidium suggesting coffee?
18:34:45  <planetmaker> :-)
18:34:45  <Eddi|zuHause> but, what makes coffee any different from any other cargo?
18:34:51  <planetmaker> Tea!
18:35:00  <Eddi|zuHause> what about Tobacco then?
18:35:12  <Alberth> Rubidium: we had a discussion about the meaning of shops selling coffee
18:35:14  <planetmaker> kinda reminds me of colonization.
18:35:30  <Rubidium> coffee is, like beer, yucky
18:35:34  <Eddi|zuHause> you can easily fill all 32 cargo slots with agricultural goods
18:35:42  <andythenorth> maybe we should :P
18:36:11  <andythenorth> planetmaker: consolidate wool, or use the name 'vegetable fibres' ?
18:36:24  <planetmaker> plant fibres
18:36:34  <andythenorth> plant fibres is nice
18:36:38  <planetmaker> or straw is hard to justify ;-)

18:44:45  <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: i tried the demo for 5 minutes last night, and noticed a positive change:  the game doesn't minimize itself if it loses focus, so you can use apps on the other screen while running fullscreen civ on the other.

19:08:05  <Eddi|zuHause> lots of stuff is in python, so not exactly performance friendly
19:08:50  <Terkhen> it already has too much graphics IMO; the civ leader screen always lagged my computer a lot
19:09:39  <Eddi|zuHause> you can replace those by static images ;)
19:10:02  <Terkhen> that's what I did

20:55:42  <fjb> Yes, it is silly.
20:57:07  <SmatZ> the fun is in "KÃŒrze", right?
20:58:17  <fjb> It translates to something like: A modern information system will be coming soon. Soon is relative.
20:59:36  <CIA-2> OpenTTD: alberth * r20838 /trunk/src/core/bitmath_func.hpp: -Fix [FS#4136]: Cast '1' in bitmath functions to width of result before shifting.
20:59:56  <fjb> It would have been better to just switch the displays off as long as they don't display anything useful.
20:59:59  <SmatZ> ok, I failed :)
21:00:10  <dihedral>
