01:30:37  <xiong> Well, this is strange. I wanted to replace the engine on a train -- just one train -- without disturbing its orders. But trains seem to be numbered according to the engine; move the engine and the number moves with it.
01:31:32  <xiong> So, I added the new engine to the old train (MU); then, I took away the old engine. For this to work, I had to shuffle the engines around; otherwise, the old engine took the train number with it anyway.
01:32:22  *** Pulec [] has quit []
01:33:40  <xiong> This train was originally part of a group of trains, with shared orders. The jiggery-pokery somehow got the orders cleared and unshared. But that's not the curious thing.
01:35:56  <xiong> The group originally had 4 trains and then, after this exchange, only 3 -- although I could still see all 4 clearly in the list. So, I took the trains out, one by one. Now the group is empty and contains 65,535 trains. Please don't tell me why 65,535; I know why 65,535. I don't know why not 0.

04:22:57  <xiong> Now there's an interesting little oops. If you autoreplace a full rail car, the new car goes out of depot full, also. Curiously, the load is shifted to completely fill the train from the head end, leaving the newer, larger capacity cars toward the rear, empty.
04:23:16  <xiong> Maybe not oops; I should say merely, curiosity.

06:55:38  <Qantourisc> xiong: in windows magnifier in linux kmag
06:57:54  <xiong> Running Ubuntu; using GNOME. Don't care for a lot of the way KDE does stuff, even though sometimes I run kstuff anyway, because it's what I've got. I'm using Virtual Magnifying Glass, which works well enough. My feeling is, if you need to pull out such a tool, you should be trying to fix something else.
06:58:07  <Qantourisc> the gnome-mag
06:58:14  <Qantourisc> but when running it from cli it's clumsy
06:58:24  <xiong> I saw somewhere that it might be possible to change fonts, maybe even font size.
06:58:36  <xiong> Meh.
06:59:31  <xiong> My real issue with visibility isn't about most of the features; they work well enough, between squinting, glass, and just knowing what they look like generally.
07:00:49  <xiong> There are some real bad choices, though. I see two engines; they are different models but look alike. Under the glass, I have detected what seems to be a difference between them of about 7 pixels -- 4 on one, 3 on the other, in different places. All black.
07:02:32  <xiong> Right now, I'm not worried about the UI. I've overcome various limitations and learned a lot. Now, I find I'm hamstrung by my own poor choices.
07:03:40  <xiong> I've been playing a 256-tile square map. It's intensely crowded. I don't see any way to service all these industries and the towns just keep growing. Doesn't seem right just to throttle the towns.
07:04:22  <xiong> Also, I'm awash in cash -- have been since about 1860.
07:04:45  <Qantourisc> yea, that botters me most :)
07:04:51  <xiong> I'm thinking that I should start over on a bigger, sparser map; maybe add a challenge of some sort.
07:05:32  <xiong> Well, town growth is good. You certainly can halt it at some point or along some line.
07:07:12  <xiong> After 55 years of play, with growth driven by nothing except some horse omnibus service and a cheap rail line, my biggest town has grown over 42K pop. What might happen if I gave it decent service?
07:07:55  <xiong> 50 years of sincere pax service, without artificial bounds, it would likely fill the map all by itself.
07:08:52  <Qantourisc> pax ?
07:09:04  <Qantourisc> next round i'll be in increasing the costs
07:09:16  <Qantourisc> so that a unsuccessfull line costs me :)
07:09:24  <Qantourisc> to prevent huges profits :)
07:09:28  <Qantourisc> als towns grown
07:09:42  <Qantourisc> so you need to dig in like like a tick
07:09:50  <Qantourisc> before it expands :S
07:10:30  <xiong> passengers
07:12:23  <xiong> From what I see, you want to reserve some space about 8 tiles away from every town center, as soon as you can. Lay down dummy rail and let the town grow through it. But reserve a fair good plot, maybe as much as 16x16; and at least a 4 tile wide straight aisle in and out.
07:12:47  <xiong> That's every town, including the little ghost towns, because they all grow and they all grow big.
07:14:17  <xiong> The other thing is, I got feeder line religion. From now on, mainline handles only traffic from one big, transfer station to another. And the feeder loops are completely cut off, so feeder trains can't escape onto the main, even when ordered to depot.
07:14:36  <Qantourisc> but you really only need 1 town if you don't care about passangers :)
07:15:15  <xiong> Pax important. Not only a destination for food and goods. Pax fuels your early money.
07:15:35  <Qantourisc> i run on coal :D

07:19:47  <xiong> I've been playing with *reduced* breakdowns?? "Oh gods, if this is the best of all possible worlds, what must the others be like?"
07:20:01  <Qantourisc> they brake down more :D
07:21:14  <__ln__> Qantourisc: no, they break down more.
07:22:39  <xiong> __ln__, If they break, they brake.
07:24:24  <Qantourisc> ps do you know a way to make sure i don't haul empty load ?
07:24:31  <Qantourisc> like switch wagons ?
07:24:40  <Qantourisc> ofcours they will stay at the wrong position :)
07:24:47  <Qantourisc> so that can't be done either :/

07:30:08  <Qantourisc> no your LATE
07:31:05  <Qantourisc> oil rigs are also fun
07:31:10  <Qantourisc> it's just, they are on the see :)
07:31:39  <Qantourisc> *sea
07:32:27  <Qantourisc> €115 mil :/
07:32:37  <Qantourisc> SO €115 * 10^6
07:32:50  <Qantourisc> riduclas
07:36:54  <Qantourisc> xiong: next time i'll use either a feeding system
07:36:58  <Qantourisc> or a better mainine
07:36:59  <Qantourisc> i'm not sure
07:37:08  <xiong> Try both.
07:37:22  <Qantourisc> got a point there
07:37:30  <Qantourisc> better mainline means: LOADS of space :)
07:37:44  <xiong> Well, yes and no.
07:37:50  <Qantourisc> hmmm
07:37:51  <Qantourisc> idea
07:37:55  <Qantourisc> fat mainline
07:38:04  <Qantourisc> and only feeders over short distances
07:38:16  <Qantourisc> then all the goods get put on the mainline
07:38:19  <xiong> I spent quite a bit of time building a couple of symmetric 4 way interchanges.
07:38:20  <Qantourisc> and the mainline does the distance
07:38:36  <Qantourisc> i don't have the space for those in this map :)
07:38:43  <Qantourisc> the towns are closely packet :D
07:38:44  <xiong> Now, I think that was a mistake. The mainline should not have any branches or loops.
07:39:01  <Qantourisc> yes mainlines are sensitive to stuff :D
07:39:15  <Qantourisc> if you want i can send you a screenshot of some shit :D
07:39:26  <xiong> So, all the interchanges are asymmetric: They are just to get trains to the big transfer stations.
07:39:46  <Qantourisc> ?
07:40:04  <Qantourisc> what is a giant screenshot :D
07:40:23  <Qantourisc> Holy shit :)
07:40:27  <Qantourisc> it's ALLL of it :D
07:40:28  <xiong> If the mainline has no loops or branches -- if it is simply a great big circle -- then there is no need for symmetric interchanges.
07:40:45  <Qantourisc> i see
07:41:05  <Qantourisc> let me reduce that screenshot size so you can open it :D
07:41:12  <xiong> Don't worry about it, Qantourisc. Fry's has 2 Tb drives on sale.
07:41:22  <Qantourisc> yea
07:41:30  <Qantourisc> but do you also have 3.7GB free ram to spare ?
07:42:17  <Qantourisc> if so i'll send it as is
07:42:21  <Qantourisc> otherwise :)
07:42:32  <Qantourisc> i recommend you let me scale it down a notch :)
07:42:49  <xiong> Ho ho. I'll take a hit, thanks.
07:42:59  <Qantourisc> "hint" ?
07:43:10  <Qantourisc> a take a hit
07:43:12  <Qantourisc> ok
07:43:14  <Qantourisc> DCC or HTTP ? :)
07:43:16  <xiong> As in, you can step on it, man, thanks.
07:43:32  <xiong> HTTP, if you can figure out where to put it.
07:43:38  <Qantourisc> i'm also not familiar with the expressiong "step on it"
07:44:28  <Qantourisc> xiong:,%202000-08-15.png
07:44:31  <Qantourisc> should work iirc
07:44:50  <Qantourisc> look out it's 40MB PNG file :)
07:44:59  <xiong> Both terms are drug slang. A 'hit' is to inhale marijuana. To 'step on' drugs, usually cocaine or heroin, is to dilute them, often with mannitose.
07:45:27  <Qantourisc> so you want the small version ?
07:45:45  <Qantourisc> cause this is the hugamongo version
07:45:47  <xiong> That's 'manitose'.
07:46:11  <Qantourisc> i don't know slang
07:46:12  <xiong> 40 Mb should be fine. 4 Gb, not so much.
07:46:20  <Qantourisc> 4GB in ram
07:46:23  <Qantourisc> 40MB on disk :)
07:46:27  <Qantourisc> i'll schrink it :D
07:46:39  <xiong> Yah. Step on it.
07:47:32  <Qantourisc> are you intrested in long lines but simple ones ?
07:48:29  <Qantourisc> xiong: ?
07:49:29  <xiong> Er?
07:49:41  <Qantourisc> xiong: i got a line running from 1 size to the other side
07:49:48  <Qantourisc> i think i can trim that off right ?
07:49:52  <xiong> Ah. Well, let me see this.
07:49:54  <Qantourisc> because it's not verry intresting :)
07:50:23  <xiong> Don't cut anything. Just take a 50% reduction. Be sure to save in indexed mode.
07:50:33  <Qantourisc> indexed mode ?
07:50:46  <xiong> You're in GIMP, I hope.
07:50:50  <Qantourisc> yes
07:51:26  <Qantourisc> 50% reduction = 1GB of ram
07:51:29  <xiong> So, change the mode of the image to indexed. You should, theoretically, use the "correct" OTTD palette but I don't care.
07:51:43  <Qantourisc> GIF ?
07:52:20  <xiong> GIF is an indexed format and probably will give you better compression than PNG. However, PNG also has an indexed mode.
07:52:28  <Qantourisc> i see
07:52:33  <Qantourisc> i'll also get filesize down :)
07:52:35  <Qantourisc> after resize
07:52:51  <Qantourisc> resizing 4GB is quite the work :)
07:53:18  <Qantourisc> ok
07:53:21  <Qantourisc> it's ugly
07:53:24  <Qantourisc> do you care ?
07:53:32  <Qantourisc> or do i resize using another interpolation ?
07:53:41  <xiong> Indexing means that each pixel is represented by a single byte (or less, if the palette is 128 colors or fewer). A regular web RGB color spec uses a full byte for each of R, G, and B; so it's at least 3 times as big.
07:54:06  <Qantourisc> i sorta knows :)
07:54:10  <Qantourisc> don't worry
07:54:17  <xiong> Interpolation doesn't make much difference when downsizing. You're not interpolating; you're deleting.
07:54:18  <Qantourisc> i just didn't know you mean color indexing :)
07:54:26  <Qantourisc> i was thinking databse indexing :)
07:55:20  <xiong> Also, using an indexed mode, you can't really interpolate; there are no intermediate colors.
07:56:00  <xiong> This is a good thing if you're going for high compression. One of the benefits of indexing is that it tends to eliminate small differences, so compression works better.
07:56:06  <Qantourisc> it was already in indexed mode :)
07:56:13  <Qantourisc> that's why the scaling was so ugly :D
07:56:21  <xiong> You might also try JPEG and really jam down on the compression.
07:56:41  <Qantourisc> proccessing :D
07:56:53  <xiong> Don't worry about ugly.
07:57:02  <Qantourisc> right now i'm happy i decided to go nuts on ram in my system :D
07:57:21  <Qantourisc> (when rending and stuff i often hitted my memory limit :D)
07:57:45  <Qantourisc> so i put in a sane amount of affordable memory :)
07:58:05  <Qantourisc> now i can render stuff at high resolutions without killing anyone :)
07:58:18  <Qantourisc> pitty gimp uses only 1 core :/

08:14:11  <xiong> I think my mistake was thinking of this as a game. Maybe it's better thought of as a model layout.
08:15:21  <xiong> So, this new map, I started with few towns, few industries. I'll let those suggest track layout. But they won't get in the way. After the track is laid in, then I can fill in any empty spots with well-chosen buildings.
08:15:38  <xiong> It's not as though I can't put in another town somewhere.

08:56:50  <xiong> Up to you.
08:58:00  <Qantourisc> the one you feel is valid for this mess :)
08:59:05  <xiong> Um. Well, interesting. Definitely not how I started out. I realize that some of this stuff, you're experimenting. Feel free to ignore obvious comments, foolishly made, and apologies in advance.
08:59:26  <xiong> I like the mainline *under* the town. It's perhaps impractical but it's... nifty.
09:00:31  <xiong> I don't like the mainline hard by the NE shore. That's pointless. You can only hook up to it from the SW side, of course.

09:01:29  <xiong> Bear in mind that cargo should be delivered by the fastest, shortest route. You don't want to go away from the center to put stuff on the main.
09:02:00  <xiong> Ideally, the main -- so I theorize -- should be a big, dumb loop; but not too big.
09:03:01  <xiong> There's some tradeoff between quick trips from one side to the other; and from two adjacent areas -- areas still far away enough from each other to go through the main.
09:04:06  <xiong> Mm, I don't like dead-end stations. Departures overlap arrivals. If you're involved in an industry chain, you could even have a lockup.
09:04:24  <xiong> However, I admit yours are done very neatly.
09:06:23  <xiong> There's a section near the center I don't quite understand. From the double main through a couple towns to an interchange near the big lake S.
09:06:42  * Qantourisc takes a look
09:06:47  <xiong> Seems all traffic on that line is forced through those stations.

09:07:35  <xiong> Perhaps you're just thinking, Oh, this is only pax service and I don't care if the trains always stop when they pass through station.
09:08:09  <xiong> But freight will go that way unless you make it impossible.
09:08:53  <xiong> That same interchange near the S lake -- why 4 stations hard by the interchange?
09:09:29  <Qantourisc> you mean the station directly above the lake ?
09:10:37  <Qantourisc> could make some notes on the image to tell you where stuff is going :)
09:10:44  <xiong> S lake, the one near the cut-off S corner. To its N, a town, 2-3 mines, a power plant.
09:11:18  <xiong> There are 4 collections of station platforms there.
09:11:28  <xiong> Why not 1 or 2 big ones?
09:12:15  <xiong> Um, in fact, I see sliding around the W of the town to a 5th station just N of it.
09:12:25  *** ogre [] has joined #openttd
09:12:32  <Qantourisc> you mean: the coal mine, power plant, 2x iron mine
09:12:37  <xiong> Yah.
09:12:42  <Qantourisc> a
09:12:46  <Qantourisc> max size stations 4x4
09:12:55  <xiong> Why?
09:14:01  <xiong> That's kinda... Well, I tell you; after this last game, I swore off 4-tile-long stations. Engine, caboose, two freight cars, and you're done.
09:14:53  <xiong> Dunno why you chose those conditions. I built 6 long, but then I weakened in a few places and built 4. Terribly regret it now.
09:15:44  <Qantourisc> xiong: because i set it as a challange :)
09:15:50  <xiong> I have all the options on: Disjoint stations, irregular stations, and max spread at 18.
09:15:52  <Qantourisc> i didn't "choice" it
09:16:04  <Qantourisc> i limmited the station size in the advanced settings
09:16:13  <Qantourisc> "station spread"
09:16:17  <xiong> I would find that unbearable.
09:16:21  <Qantourisc> that's why there are 4 stations :)
09:16:25  <Qantourisc> hehe :)
09:16:35  <xiong> But, to each his own.
09:17:15  <xiong> You're not playing with FIRS, ISRS, or TTRS, are you?
09:17:37  <Qantourisc> what are those ? :)
09:18:02  <xiong> Those are NewGRFs, all popular; and play nice with each other.
09:18:26  <Qantourisc> what do they stand for so i can look at them :)
09:18:29  <xiong> In order, basically, new industries, new stations, new towns.
09:18:38  <Qantourisc> BTW is there an easy way to add GPRS in bulk ?
09:18:46  <xiong> Oh yeh.
09:19:23  <Qantourisc> so what are they short for so i can DL the GRFS's
09:19:52  <xiong> Well, do online content.
09:20:28  <Qantourisc> FIRS i found ISRS not
09:20:44  <andythenorth_> search "industrial stations"
09:20:53  <Qantourisc> TTRS dount
09:20:54  <planetmaker> the usual abbreviation is also ISR
09:21:02  <xiong> FIRS, I dunno, F-? Industry Replacement Set. IRSR, Industrial Renewal Station Set. TTRS, Total Town Replacement Set.
09:21:08  <Qantourisc> ISR just stalllsed
09:21:24  <andythenorth_> FIRS Industry Replacement Set - recurses...
09:21:30  <Qantourisc> so how do i add GRPFS in bulk
09:21:44  <Qantourisc> thank you all GRFS's recommended by xiong found
09:21:50  <xiong> Easier to browse the list of them than to type the names... which all sound alike anyway.
09:22:22  <xiong> To go with above, a new vehicle set or five.
09:23:11  <planetmaker> Qantourisc: my two favourite settings:
09:23:23  <xiong> I've got NARS, which does road and rail; FISH; and a number of the AV8 sets.
09:23:36  <xiong> HEQS and eGRVTS.
09:23:42  <Qantourisc> do i have to add them all 1 by one? :)
09:23:46  <planetmaker> swedish houses, heqs, firs, fish, ukrs or nars and an appropriate townname newgrf and a couple of station newgrfs
09:23:58  <planetmaker> or: all Japanese Newgrfs and a couple of station newgrfs
09:24:03  <xiong> Wait, I think I lied about NARS. That may only be rail. eGRVTS does road.
09:24:36  <planetmaker> oh. add variable snowline and swedish rails to the first selection of newgrfs ;-)
09:24:47  <xiong> Qantourisc, You do this all from the splash screen under Check Online Content and NewGRF Settings.
09:25:07  <xiong> Be sure you have openttd nightly.
09:25:08  <Qantourisc> xiong: i know, but then i need to activate them no ?
09:25:23  <planetmaker> don't do it on a running game
09:25:30  <xiong> Yes. It's easy, sort of. Check the readme's for parameter settings.
09:25:31  <planetmaker> select first. Then create a new game
09:25:49  <xiong> Yah, don't even think about shoving all that stuff into an existing savegame.
09:25:56  <Qantourisc> haha :)
09:25:57  <Qantourisc> i don't :D
09:27:21  <xiong> I find the pax stations are quite boring. I have Rural Stations and Canadian Stations. They don't fight with ISRS, unlike other sets that... might.

09:27:39  <xiong> s/pax/default pax/
09:28:44  <xiong> Past that point, well, I'm the wrong guy to ask. There's about 6 NewGRFs in very heavy use and I think I've mentioned them.
09:34:14  *** AveiMil [] has joined #openttd
09:36:36  <AveiMil> Morning!
09:38:44  <AveiMil> So I'm reading this to try to understand nml: | I wonder about the grf {} block, is that mandatory and is it perhaps the parent block of for instance the basecost {} block? Or are they seperate blocks?
09:39:12  <Alberth> separate afaik
09:39:27  <planetmaker> separate and mandatory
09:39:31  <Alberth> the 'grf' block is used for identifying the NewGRF you are making
09:39:50  <planetmaker> AveiMil: you might just as well look at one of the existing NML newgrfs
09:39:56  <Alberth> ie it should be worldwide unique for every NewGRF you make :)
09:40:07  <planetmaker> IMHO they can give quite well an idea how things work :-)
09:42:00  *** Eddi|zuHause [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:42:04  <AveiMil> where do I find one of the existing NML newgrfs?
09:42:37  <Qantourisc> BTW how do multiplayer work ? it's a "world" you host ?
09:42:44  *** Eddi|zuHause [] has joined #openttd
09:42:49  <planetmaker> on the devzone. SwedishRails, OpenGFX+Trains, OpenGFX+RV, OpenGFX+Airports
09:43:01  <Terkhen> AveiMil:
09:43:39  <planetmaker> Maybe also the (discontinued) OpenGFX+ repository is helpful as it's not as complicated as the other four projects
09:44:20  <AveiMil>
09:44:27  <AveiMil> like that? that dosent look familiar from the documentation
09:44:40  <planetmaker> that's part of the build environment
09:44:47  <planetmaker> and not nml
09:44:57  <planetmaker> it just helps to build the newgrf automatically
09:45:11  <Terkhen> the nml code is in the src and lang folders
09:45:27  <planetmaker> what Terkhen says
09:46:00  <planetmaker> the newgrfs are usually defined in the header.pnml
09:46:16  <planetmaker> and then subsequently other files are used to describe the single features
09:47:10  <Qantourisc> I'm confused about online ?
09:47:12  *** Ammler [] has quit [Excess Flood]
09:47:23  <Qantourisc> every time i join a server there seems to be nonone ?
09:47:32  <AveiMil> Why is it .pnml and not .nml?
09:47:41  *** Ammler [] has joined #openttd
09:48:00  <planetmaker> because those files as they are in the repository still need preprocessing, thus cannot be understood by nmlc directly
09:48:14  <planetmaker> <-- after pre-processing everything is combined in one file like there
09:48:28  <Alberth> Qantourisc: there are normally more servers than players, so a lot of them are empty
09:48:39  <planetmaker> the pre-processing bascially only combines the many source files into one which the compiler can eat
09:49:05  *** fonsinchen [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:49:07  <planetmaker> but when programming it's convenient to keep different things in different files than one with 5000 lines of codee
09:49:09  <planetmaker> -e
09:49:13  <Qantourisc> Alberth: the ones with peaple/max - companies/max are the ones with peaple on right ?
09:49:21  <AveiMil> Hmm, okay. So developers split "one .nml" file into several to make it easy to read or something?
09:49:26  <planetmaker> yes
09:49:36  <Alberth> Qantourisc: for values other than 0, yes :)
09:49:38  <AveiMil> and then you have to process taht into one .nml file before you use nmlc
09:49:46  <Qantourisc> weird
09:50:01  <planetmaker> AveiMil: basically yes
09:50:08  <Terkhen> AveiMil: yes, but the build environment should take care of that for you
09:50:22  <planetmaker> that's what the makefile* files are for
09:50:24  <AveiMil> ok, but then for my little basecost mod with nml, all I need is the grf block and the basecost block, and I'll write that up using a simple text editor and saving it as a .nml file and then using nmlc to great the NewGRF?
09:50:37  <Alberth> AveiMil: it uses the C pre-processor for that task
09:50:39  <planetmaker> that will work, yes
09:51:08  <AveiMil> thanks, you'be been helpful!
09:51:14  <AveiMil> a cookie and a star for everyone
09:51:26  <Alberth> AveiMil: the build env is useful for larger grfs
09:51:34  <planetmaker> quite so ^
09:51:44  <AveiMil> ah
09:51:48  <planetmaker> but I'm biased ;-)
09:51:59  <Alberth> like when you make a toyland FIRS :)
09:52:12  <planetmaker> :-)
09:52:21  <Alberth> or rotated airports
09:52:32  <AveiMil> Some more stupid questions, why is it called a NewGRF? Intuitively when I first saw "NewGRF" in the Check online content menu I thought these were only graphics packs, like new train graphics (images), but it's apperantly more.
09:52:41  <planetmaker> that's like opengfx+airports... rotatable small airport.
09:52:55  <planetmaker> But no-one yet drew the graphics in a rotated fashion for the other airports :-(
09:52:57  *** TrueBrain [~patric@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:53:03  <Qantourisc> ps a filter would be nice :D
09:53:04  <planetmaker> Yexo and I would even code them as soon as we get them
09:53:08  <Alberth> they were the graphics at first, but as any open source stuff, it grows and grows and grows and ...
09:53:14  <AveiMil> and you use the word "patch" instead of "mod" which sounds weird. A patch in my mind "fixes" something.
09:53:31  <AveiMil> ...that's already there
09:53:33  <planetmaker> where do we use patch?
09:53:51  <planetmaker> we have settings, we have newgrf, we have ai...
09:54:17  <planetmaker> patches are something which modify the source code and require you to compile successively. In the OpenTTD worlds
09:54:17  <AveiMil> hmm, good question, felt I've been told "why don't you make a patch with that functionality" here in IRC
09:54:22  <AveiMil> but maybe I'm wrong
09:54:39  <Alberth> mod is more a set of user-visible changes imho. A patch is a modification, often much smaller than a mod
09:54:40  <planetmaker> yes. That means: write source code patches. Modify the game as it works
09:55:23  <planetmaker> hm... in my understanding a mod is something which uses existing framework and just applies new content while a patch modifies the programme itself
09:55:25  <AveiMil> ok, that's your definition, that's why I was a bit confused as in my head a patch is like a bug fix not new content.
09:55:43  <AveiMil> but I guess it can be both
09:55:44  <AveiMil> hehe
09:55:44  <planetmaker> but we can conclude: those words are fuzzy ;-)
09:55:51  <Alberth> about 1 in 5 of the changes we do is a fix :)
09:56:05  <planetmaker> hmmm... not 4 of 5?
09:56:30  <Alberth> no, most things are shuft shuffling code around or re-organizing it
09:56:37  <Alberth> s/shuft/just/
09:57:00  <Alberth> ie 'preparing the code for the next fix or feature' :)
09:57:17  <AveiMil> grfid : "AB"; <- here I just make shit up?
09:57:33  <planetmaker> @calc (89-22)/22
09:57:33  <DorpsGek> planetmaker: 3.04545454545
09:57:35  <AveiMil> and 02 can maximum be 08 since it's a byte?
09:57:38  <planetmaker> ^ 1/3 ;-)
09:58:03  * andythenorth_ has to draw yet more storage tanks for FIRS :P
09:58:10  <andythenorth_> how many times will I have to do this?
09:58:17  <planetmaker> n+1
09:58:37  <planetmaker> AveiMil: basically yes, make up an arbitrary sequence of 4 bytes
09:59:02  <AveiMil> The letters can be anything?
09:59:03  <planetmaker> Except... don't ever start with FF unless you know what that means and you mean it
09:59:12  <Alberth> AveiMil: first two letter are supposed to be author initials,  is a 'project number', and  a 'version' of that project.  But many author don't follow those rules
09:59:26  <AveiMil> ok, ty
10:00:06  <AveiMil> so two NewGRF's can conflict or anything if they ahve the same ID?
10:00:36  <Alberth> yes, having the same ID may give problems
10:01:35  <planetmaker> you cannot activate two newgrfs with the same ID. Nor can you upload a newgrf to bananas when the ID exists there already
10:01:59  <Alberth> in particular, such data is saved in a game, so you can reload the grf if you load the game again. It is then important that you actually get the exact same grf, and not another one
10:02:09  <planetmaker> and we still don't have a comprehensive list of used IDs anywhere... hm
10:02:20  <Qantourisc> they don't talk allot on openttd :)
10:04:29  <AveiMil> So for name : string(STR_GRF_NAME); I can create a seperate line outside the grf block that says STR_GRF_NAME :AveiMil Mod
10:04:45  <AveiMil> STR_GRF_NAME is like a variable?
10:04:59  <planetmaker> it's a string to be put in the language file
10:05:25  <AveiMil> I saw here, but for my Mod, I don't want language files
10:05:32  <AveiMil> so I can just do what I mentioned?
10:05:46  <planetmaker> you need a language file for the default language
10:05:57  <planetmaker> and why don't you want translations?
10:06:18  <planetmaker> and as you see ogfx-trains has a default.lng ;-)
10:06:55  <AveiMil> so, I make a default.lng file, place it in the same folder as my AveiMil_Mod.nml file
10:07:04  <AveiMil> and when nmlc runs it figures that out automatically?
10:07:06  <planetmaker> place it in a lang subfolder
10:07:27  *** Eddi|zuHause [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:07:31  <AveiMil> I don't need any declaraiton in my AveiMIl_mod.nml taht points to language files?
10:07:41  <planetmaker> you don't need that, right.
10:07:56  *** Eddi|zuHause [] has joined #openttd
10:07:59  <planetmaker> but you need the lang subfolder for them. Or you need to tell nmlc where to find the language files
10:09:01  <AveiMil> Ok
10:09:07  <AveiMil> Each language appears to have a code, lang: 7F
10:09:10  <AveiMil> Where is that referenced?
10:09:44  <Alberth> not, nml handles all languages you supply by itself
10:10:26  <Alberth> (or I misunderstood the question)
10:10:41  <planetmaker> AveiMil: the language code tells openttd when to use that language
10:10:53  <AveiMil>
10:10:57  <AveiMil> ok
10:10:59  <AveiMil> :)
10:11:06  <Alberth> you set that language in the game options menu
10:11:07  <planetmaker> e.g. if I select German, the newgrf will then know to use the strings from the German langauge file (if present) - or use the default (7F)
10:11:10  <AveiMil> so for English it must be 7F
10:11:26  <planetmaker> basically yes
10:11:32  <Alberth> English UK  :)
10:11:44  <planetmaker> unless you want the default to be maori. But many might not like it
10:11:57  <AveiMil> :D
10:12:03  <planetmaker> indeed. English UK. English US is language 01
10:12:18  <planetmaker> or 00?
10:12:23  <Qantourisc> Ps in multiplayer, is there a way to share resources between companies ?
10:12:25  <AveiMil> I use English UK and since the world revolves around me, 7F it is.
10:12:33  <planetmaker> 00
10:12:46  <AveiMil> Though, I am Norwegian
10:12:56  <planetmaker> Qantourisc: yes. On an oil rig
10:13:04  <Alberth> planetmaker: figures :)
10:13:17  <Qantourisc> hmm, ok, not an option in this case, thanks :)
10:13:26  <planetmaker> :-)
10:16:42  <AveiMil>
10:16:49  <AveiMil> If 0 is the same and 1 is double the cost.
10:16:54  <AveiMil> How can I make it 50% the cost?
10:17:01  <AveiMil> 50% extra
10:17:21  <AveiMil> Can I use decimal numbers?
10:17:57  <planetmaker> no
10:18:10  <planetmaker> you can only change stuff in powers of two

10:40:03  <Alberth> where is nmlc in your setup ?
10:40:15  <Qantourisc> :)
10:40:17  <AveiMil> C:\Games\OpenTTD_NewGRF\nml-r1013
10:40:32  <Alberth> no, the main python script file
10:41:18  <AveiMil> Not sure I understand
10:41:30  <Alberth> 'next to nmlc' is literally have 'ply' in the same directory as nmlc
10:41:40  <AveiMil> C:\Program Files\Python27
10:41:53  <Alberth> where is the file?
10:42:40  <AveiMil> Well, it's nowhere to be found in C:\Games at least :)
10:42:43  <AveiMil> Searched.
10:43:21  <planetmaker> you must have put nml somewhere ;-)
10:43:24  <AveiMil> C:\Games\OpenTTD_NewGRF\nml-r1013, that's the nml I downloaded
10:43:26  <Alberth> I'd expect C:\Games\OpenTTD_NewGRF\nml-r1013\
10:43:32  <AveiMil> and there's only a nml cfile there
10:43:34  <AveiMil> nmlc file
10:43:36  <AveiMil> NO extension
10:43:46  <Alberth> ok, that's fine
10:43:56  <Alberth> (I tkhink :p )
10:44:16  <AveiMil> there isen't much in that file either, just a few lines
10:44:17  <Alberth> put ply in C:\Games\OpenTTD_NewGRF\nml-r1013  too
10:44:31  <AveiMil> like so? C:\Games\OpenTTD_NewGRF\nml-r1013\ply
10:44:49  <Alberth> yes, it does 'from nml import stuff', then stuff.main()
10:45:01  <Alberth> now run nmlc again
10:45:31  <AveiMil> did not work, but it's possible I put the wrong ply folder in there
10:45:34  <Alberth> that's why site-packages is much simpler in the long run
10:45:39  <AveiMil> I put the renamed ply-3.3 folder in there
10:45:54  <AveiMil> but there's a ply folder under ex ply-3.3
10:45:57  <AveiMil> i'll try that isntead
10:46:08  <Alberth> sounds like a good idea
10:46:53  <Qantourisc> Why would one not use maglev ?
10:46:57  <AveiMil> yay, new error
10:47:09  <AveiMil> String "STR_GRF_NAME" does not exist in the translations.
10:47:43  <AveiMil> but that's not true, I have lang\default.lng
10:47:44  <AveiMil> STR_GRF_NAME :AveiMil Mod {VERSION}
10:48:32  <AveiMil> I'll try specifying lang dir
10:49:40  <xiong> There are many, many settings available to the player. Amazing how configurable the game is, even without adding a single grf beyond the basic. My hat is off.
10:50:39  <xiong> And all these settings are available through the ingame GUI. Except for... *nine* of them, all having to do with font selection. These, you must edit the config file by hand.
10:51:03  <AveiMil> <- Where does this developer get the {VERSION} from?
10:51:15  <AveiMil> I assumed this was from the header grf{} block
10:51:22  <AveiMil> but giving me an error in my test
10:53:17  <xiong> After crying, moaning, weeping, bitching, and driving everyone up the wall for a month about my poor eyesight and difficulty making out most everything, I have stumbled on these obscure settings, changed my fonts, and increased their sizes considerably. What an improvement! But may I suggest that, if you don't want to suggest players edit their configs by hand, you might allow them to make the changes in the Advanced Settings GUI.
10:53:27  <xiong> Me for bed.
10:53:40  *** pugi [] has joined #openttd
10:54:23  <Alberth> please find a universal way to get fonts and sizes etc for all platforms that we support
10:55:14  <Alberth> AveiMil: {VERSION} is some build system magic (you need planetmaker for that)
10:55:29  <AveiMil> I just removed it for now.
10:55:30  <Alberth> a simple way is to replace it with some fixed text
10:55:38  <AveiMil> Now I have my .grf file
10:55:42  <AveiMil> how do I install it?
10:55:56  <AveiMil> I see mods here are packed: C:\Documents and Settings\sdre\My Documents\OpenTTD\content_download\data
10:55:58  <Alberth> put in 'data' of your game
10:56:03  *** TrueBrain [~patric@] has joined #openttd
10:56:03  <AveiMil> ok
10:56:33  <Alberth> start openttd, and select it from the main menu :)
10:56:37  <planetmaker> yes... I always want the newgrf to have the version my repository for the newgrf has
10:56:38  <AveiMil> it loads all .grfs in the C:\Games\OpenTTD\data automatically?
10:56:50  <planetmaker> I write the {VERSION} into custom_tags.txt
10:56:54  <planetmaker> which then can be used
10:56:55  <AveiMil> load it via NewGRF settings I guess
10:57:11  <Alberth> yes
10:57:30  <AveiMil> wow it worked
10:57:35  <AveiMil> fantastic
10:57:56  <AveiMil> I would never been able to piece together this information to do this without your IRC help
10:58:36  <AveiMil> When playing multiplayer, does everyone need teh same NewGRF packs, or is it only the server that matters?
10:59:38  *** fonsinchen [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:59:41  <Alberth> everybody must have the exact same setup
11:00:00  <AveiMil> are you sure? because I created a game yesterday and I had AI configured
11:00:21  <AveiMil> and that worked fine and Im' sure the others didt neccessary have the smae AI's configured
11:00:37  <Alberth> AIs run only at the server iirc, but that is a bit of an exception
11:00:43  <planetmaker> AIs are not newgrf
11:00:49  <AveiMil> ah right
11:01:16  <Alberth> basically, in MP, every player runs the same program at the same time, so you don't have to transfer all changes in the whole world
11:01:24  <AveiMil> planetmaker, Alberth said you did {VERSION} magic

11:01:39  <AveiMil> How can I get the version from the .nml file to display in the language file?
11:01:50  <Alberth> which obviously breaks if you do something different than another player
11:01:50  <planetmaker> [11:57]	<planetmaker>	yes... I always want the newgrf to have the version my repository for the newgrf has

11:01:55  <planetmaker> [11:57]	<planetmaker>	which then can be used
11:02:29  <AveiMil> sorry, I missed that
11:03:18  <AveiMil> where do you place the custom_tags.txt?
11:03:31  <planetmaker> same place as the nml
11:03:59  <AveiMil> do you have an example file?
11:04:13  <AveiMil> <- don't see one there
11:04:43  <Alberth> it is generated, so not stored in the repo
11:05:17  <planetmaker> plain text file:
11:05:20  <planetmaker> VERSION  :nightly-r88M
11:05:21  <planetmaker> TITLE    :OpenGFX+ Trains nightly-r88M
11:05:44  <Qantourisc> Why does shipyard earn so litle ? :D
11:05:59  <AveiMil> So you update the version in both the .txt and the .nml file each time then?
11:10:07  <planetmaker> AveiMil: that's why I use for example the makefiles :-)
11:10:17  <planetmaker> They take care to update the version automatically for me ;-)

11:13:50  <planetmaker> yes
11:14:09  <planetmaker> that's only the numerical version. It's replaced by the gcc preprocessor to the actual number
11:14:59  <AveiMil> ah
11:15:09  <planetmaker> which in this case is not a string defined in custom_tags.txt :-)
11:15:18  <AveiMil> Thank you very much, now I have the basic tools and knowledge I need to make a basic mod.
11:15:23  <planetmaker> :-)
11:15:26  <planetmaker> you're welcome

11:52:05  <Qantourisc> yes

11:52:51  <AveiMil> 1.0.4
11:52:54  <Alberth> Qantourisc:
11:52:55  <Qantourisc> so only add a language if you are deteremend ? :p
11:53:18  <planetmaker> Qantourisc: well, yes and no
11:53:23  <Alberth> there is a web-interface for the translators
11:53:34  <planetmaker>
11:53:37  <Alberth> often there are several for a single language
11:53:38  <Qantourisc> planetmaker: actaully that list is managable :)
11:53:55  <Hirundo> AveiMil: Translated grf descriptions only work in nightlies, the translated vehicle names should work, though
11:53:57  <Qantourisc> planetmaker: are all languages accepted ?

11:55:13  <planetmaker> what language code should that be?
11:55:22  <planetmaker> it doesn't follow the usual rules
11:55:41  <planetmaker> en_UK is the iso style we us. or just en for fallback

12:23:52  <mikl> Hmm, wasn't there Mac OS X builds of OpenTTD at some point?
12:24:04  <Alberth> there was
12:24:31  <planetmaker> at one point. prior to 1.0
12:25:11  *** Brianetta [~brian@] has joined #openttd
12:25:22  <Alberth> but the Mac dev went away, so we cannot build the program any more, nor fix bugs
12:25:22  <George> would nvar=0 work for VariationalAction2 in case it is not a callback, but a usual Action2HousesIndustryTiles?
12:25:28  <mikl> seems a bit wierd that there are builds for OS/2 but not for Mac OS X ;)
12:25:37  *** Adambean [] has joined #openttd
12:26:05  <mikl> well, at least there is a homebrew recipe for it
12:26:32  <Eddi|zuHause> mikl: that is basically Apple's fault
12:26:42  <frosch123> George: nvar=0 always means a callback result
12:26:43  <Alberth> you cannot run Mac in a VM legally, so building is not possible
12:27:05  <Terkhen> mikl:
12:27:17  <Alberth> but building a version with bugs is useless anyway
12:27:34  <George> frosch123: what would happen for Action2HousesIndustryTiles? default value would be used instead of calculation result?
12:28:24  <George> I mean VariationalAction2 would fail and ude default result?
12:28:33  <frosch123> a default value is still a callback result. when resolving realsprites results in a callback result, the realsprite resolving failed
12:28:56  <frosch123> i guess industrytiles/houses would then draw the original image of the substitute type
12:29:25  <frosch123> vehicles likely draw a "?" image
12:30:15  <mikl> Alberth: well, you can if you run the VM on a Mac ;) - but I see what you’re saying :)
12:30:33  <planetmaker> mikl: do you donate to us an XServe?
12:30:53  <Alberth> planetmaker: we need a Mac dev much more urgently :)
12:30:59  <planetmaker> :-)
12:31:06  <planetmaker> I heard that much, I guess ;-)
12:31:34  <frosch123> how about buying apple, and resolving the company?
12:31:42  <mikl> planetmaker: I suppose a Mac Mini would do the trick :)
12:31:47  <planetmaker> I also heart that the remaining bugs are a bitch to fix, if not the appropriate hardware is available to test it on as they're very hardware specific
12:32:04  <Alberth> mikl: it needs to be a 19" rack machine
12:32:08  <mikl> but yeah, if we don't have a developer, that pointless anyways
12:32:43  <planetmaker> Alberth: With some I'm tempted to say 'works for me' :-P
12:33:04  <planetmaker> but as long as two people report the same issue... :S
12:33:08  <Qantourisc> planetmaker: hardware specific bugs ?!?
12:33:41  <Alberth> Qantourisc: we are as flabbergasted as you are :)
12:33:50  <Qantourisc> :)
12:34:02  <Qantourisc> unless you are using hacks ... there shouldn't be any of those :/
12:34:20  <planetmaker> Qantourisc: there's no other way to explain it. If it works here on the same OS, but not there, it has to be hardware - if that's the only thing which differs
12:34:36  <planetmaker> especially if it comes to display-related bugs
12:34:54  <Eddi|zuHause> Qantourisc: the entire mac port is consisting of hacks.

12:43:35  <planetmaker> mikl: I don't know what that script is supposed to do... obviously install OpenTTD. But you might remove the reference to the original TTD. It's absolutely not needed
12:43:38  <andythenorth_> graphics I'm using are 3x2
12:43:54  <planetmaker> Rather install also automagically the base sets
12:44:01  <Eddi|zuHause> 2x3 sounds a little small
12:44:01  <planetmaker> andythenorth_: then add (also) a 2x3 layout
12:44:13  <planetmaker> problem then solved
12:44:23  <andythenorth_> graphics will be weird

12:48:08  <AveiMil> , ah did not know about that feature
12:48:09  <AveiMil> hehe
12:48:09  <Hirundo> I guess, these are called buoys
12:48:27  <planetmaker> booooring!
12:48:44  <Alberth> Hirundo: you are giving the answer too soon :(
12:48:50  <Hirundo> Floating ship-guiding device, then? ;)
12:49:08  <Alberth> lol
12:49:20  <planetmaker> hehe
12:50:00  <planetmaker> but actually the list of constants tells about ...WAYPOINT_RAIL and ...WAYPOINT_BUOY
12:50:04  <AveiMil> PR_RUNNING_TRAIN_STEAM <- is taht running cost for stream trains?
12:50:05  <planetmaker> so it would have been obvious

12:51:21  <planetmaker> nasty word, granted
12:51:26  <Terkhen> too late :)
12:51:50  <Alberth> planetmaker: should be ...WAYPOINT_WATER :)
12:51:59  <planetmaker> hm, yes
12:52:26  <planetmaker> as patch author I'd love to see that kind of changes :-P
12:52:28  <Hirundo> The Internet (tm) often talks about aircrafts, The Internet (tm) is always right, ergo....
12:52:29  *** Fuco [] has joined #openttd
12:52:33  <Alberth> or even  WAYPOINT and BUOY
12:52:57  <planetmaker> Alberth: just waypoint is IMHO not good. We might introduce it for RV or planes, too

12:53:14  <planetmaker> though I don't see the latter ;-)
12:53:34  <planetmaker> waypoint_water sounds better to me
12:53:45  <Alberth> didn't we have a suggestion for radio towers or so for planes ?
12:53:51  <Hirundo> FYI -  I reused the names from the OpenTTD source :)
12:53:54  <planetmaker> yes, we did
12:54:04  <planetmaker> hehe @ Hirundo :-)
12:54:10  <AveiMil> PR_BUILD_VEHICLE_TRAIN <- is there any way to split this so I can change purchase costs for steam/diesel/electric costs induvidually?
12:54:14  <AveiMil> just like running costs
12:54:27  *** Brianetta [~brian@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:54:40  <Hirundo> You can set a multiplier for each train individually
12:54:53  <AveiMil> but not by category?
12:54:58  <Hirundo> no
12:55:03  <planetmaker> AveiMil: no
12:55:29  <AveiMil> how many tears does it take for someone to implement that?
12:55:43  <planetmaker> 10 years or so
12:55:52  <Alberth> Hirundo: internal names of OpenTTD do not always mean anything useful outside the source. eg we have that names only because waypoint code and buoy code was unifiied recently
12:55:53  * AveiMil cries
12:55:53  <Hirundo> tears or years?
12:56:02  <AveiMil> my sweet tears
12:56:19  <planetmaker> Hirundo: I deliberately switched the few letters ;-)
12:57:06  <Hirundo> Vehicle set authors manage quite well without separate base costs, I think
12:57:23  <planetmaker> it works at least
12:58:26  <Alberth> AveiMil: running costs make a much bigger impact than the one time that you buy a train
12:58:28  <AveiMil> Can I set the purcahe cost for the induvidual trains in the basecost block?
12:58:39  <AveiMil> Yes
12:58:49  <Alberth> AveiMil: also, what happens if you combine a electric engine with a steam engine in a train?
12:58:59  <AveiMil> I want to have higher running costs for steam trains, but have the trains be relatively cheap, and lower running costs for electric trains
12:59:06  <AveiMil> but have the trains be fairly expensive
12:59:26  <Yexo> you can't change the cost of individual engines in the basecost block
12:59:35  <AveiMil> I mean the engine, not train
12:59:35  <Yexo> you'll need an item/property block for that
13:01:07  <AveiMil> Do you have an example block where a trains cost is cahnged?
13:01:47  <AveiMil> I notice I blend the words trains and engine
13:02:17  <planetmaker> look at opengfx+trains

13:10:29  <Yexo> no, you can use any name you want

13:11:35  <andythenorth_> I can finish HEQS 0.9 :)
13:11:40  <AveiMil> So to set the KirbyPaul train cost I do this?
13:11:41  <AveiMil> item(FEAT_TRAINS, KirbyPaulTankSteam, 0) { property { cost_factor: 4; }}
13:11:47  <AveiMil> 0 = the number in the table
13:12:08  <planetmaker> yes
13:12:08  <Yexo> indeed
13:12:19  <Terkhen> tell me if something explodes :)
13:12:27  <Yexo> but notice that the default is 50, so you've just lowered the running cost 12.5x
13:13:04  * planetmaker prepares some IEDs for Terkhen
13:13:04  <AveiMil> hehe yeah, just to test
13:13:19  <AveiMil> but now that I tested, I see the train has dropped in the default purcahse list ordering
13:13:30  <AveiMil> I don't want to do that
13:13:30  <AveiMil> :(
13:13:40  <planetmaker> Not much way around that
13:13:54  <AveiMil> it says EngineID sort
13:13:58  <AveiMil> so why ain't it at the top
13:14:15  <planetmaker> yes. And it gets a new one as you re-define it
13:14:30  <planetmaker> hm... though it might be considered a bug...
13:14:45  <AveiMil> can't I set ID with a property?
13:14:47  *** Brianetta [~brian@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:15:04  <Hirundo> What happens, when you disable the engine pool?
13:15:33  <AveiMil> The what?
13:15:58  <planetmaker> Psst, Hirundo don't give people bad ideas :-)
13:16:23  <Yexo> planetmaker: why is that bad in this case?
13:16:26  <planetmaker> I actually always ponder whether I shall make the check for engine pool enabled fatal or keep it at warning level
13:16:33  <planetmaker> Yexo: it's not
13:16:38  <Yexo> either he sets a property of all the default engines (and they're sorted properly again)
13:16:39  <planetmaker> But it will then at a later stage
13:16:44  <Yexo> maybe
13:16:46  <Hirundo> The setting is called "Enable multiple GRF engine sets"
13:17:05  <planetmaker> It's actually a setting which could go from the GUI
13:17:25  <planetmaker> 'normal' users don't need it
13:18:04  <AveiMil> I don't notice any diference in the purcahse menu after disabling it
13:18:16  <Yexo> did you start a new game with the setting disabled?
13:18:26  <Yexo> planetmaker: only show it if "newgrf developer tools" is active
13:18:33  <planetmaker> Yexo: good idea :-)
13:19:06  <AveiMil> well no, but now I did
13:19:09  <Yexo> no idea if the current code for the advanced settings window allows that
13:19:11  <AveiMil> and notice no difference
13:19:48  <planetmaker> only when you start a new game
13:19:48  <Yexo> AveiMil: in that case probably the easiest solution is to set at least one property for all engines
13:20:03  <planetmaker> ^^
13:20:09  <Alberth> no afaik, but folding of entries in a tree needs to be generalized :p
13:20:09  <AveiMil> Thought of that my self
13:21:28  <Yexo> George: do you check any ttdpatchflags in your newgrfs? And if so, which ones?
13:22:23  <Yexo> andythenorth_: same question ^^
13:22:57  <AveiMil> I don't even need to change a property
13:23:03  <AveiMil> I just use the default cost
13:23:08  <AveiMil> and now the list is displaed correct again
13:23:17  <andythenorth_> Yexo: I don't know what ttdpatchflags are :)
13:23:19  <Yexo> you need to _set_ one property
13:23:22  <Yexo>
13:23:34  <AveiMil> I guess I set one, but I just overwrite the default value with the default value
13:23:38  <Yexo> action7 with variable 0x85
13:23:40  <AveiMil> item(FEAT_TRAINS, GinzuA4Steam, 9) { property { cost_factor: 19; } }
13:23:50  <AveiMil> since it's already 19 it's fine
13:24:03  <AveiMil> so you don't hvae to set it to something diffeerent than 19 i meant

13:47:32  <Yexo> why not instruct to go to nml/ply and do: python install ?
13:47:48  <Yexo> same for nml btw
13:48:32  <Alberth> it's not, it is ply/ and ply/  (ie AveiMil has ply-3.3/ply/{lex,yacc}.py)
13:48:58  <Alberth> but under site-packages is much more generic
13:49:28  <Alberth> does ply have a
13:49:32  <Yexo> yes
13:49:56  <Alberth> in that case, definitely   python install :)
13:50:02  <planetmaker> hm, also pil?
13:50:08  <Yexo> yes
13:50:17  <Alberth> apparently, it had an installer
13:50:43  <Yexo> but for windows there are exe installers for several packages, like pil
13:50:54  <Yexo> so that's "easier" for most windows users
13:51:10  <Alberth> Yexo: for linuces, you'd use a package manager
13:51:31  <Yexo> true

14:13:54  <planetmaker> oh. :-) thanks
14:14:21  *** HerzogDeXtEr [~Flex@] has joined #openttd
14:14:55  * andythenorth_ should learn how buildout works
14:15:00  <andythenorth_> and provide one for nml
14:15:10  <andythenorth_> buildout is good magic
14:16:16  <Alberth> only for platforms without their own package manager imho
14:16:35  <andythenorth_> really?
14:16:59  * andythenorth_ only knows about world of Zope
14:17:06  <andythenorth_> buildout is standard in zope world
14:17:12  <AveiMil> Ok, here's a stupid question
14:17:21  <AveiMil> item(FEAT_TRAINS, KirbyPaulTankSteam, 0) { property { cost_factor: 7; } }  can I somehow multiply that cost_factor with a variable?
14:17:23  <Alberth> it is an solution for python-only afaik.
14:17:43  <andythenorth_> are there non-python dependencies for nml?
14:17:45  <AveiMil> like cost_factor: 7*STEAMENGINECOST
14:17:58  <AveiMil> and define STEAMENGINECOST elsewhere
14:18:00  <planetmaker> you can
14:18:20  <Yexo> AveiMil: note that openttd already multiplies it with the base cost
14:18:50  <AveiMil> right, but lets say I wanted to test and try with 50% increased cost for all steam enginees
14:18:55  <AveiMil> then I could just set my variable to 1.5
14:18:57  <Yexo> another thing to note is that the cost_factor cannot be greater than 255, also after multiplication
14:19:20  <Yexo> using a preprocessor would be a good idea
14:19:45  <AveiMil> Steam_Engine_Cost: 1.5
14:19:45  <AveiMil> item(FEAT_TRAINS, KirbyPaulTankSteam, 0) { property { cost_factor: 7*Steam_Engine_Cost; } }
14:19:46  <Alberth> andythenorth_: I have all my files managed by the system package manager yum.  yum knows nothing about packages installed by buildout and vice versa. These managers tend to freak out if you try updating stuff, as files change without the manager knowing about.
14:19:48  <AveiMil> that's correct?
14:19:59  <Yexo> no, that syntax is not supported
14:19:59  <andythenorth_> Alberth: that makes sense
14:20:10  <Yexo> AveiMil: as I said, the best option is to use a preprocessor
14:20:14  <Yexo> than do something like this:
14:20:22  <Yexo> #define steam_engine_cost 1.5
14:20:23  <AveiMil> I don't know what a preprocessor is
14:20:25  <Yexo> and your second line
14:20:42  <andythenorth_> far as I know buildout helps isolate a specific project from any packages managed by the OS
14:20:43  <andythenorth_>
14:20:43  <Alberth> andythenorth_: you should have only one captain at a ship :)
14:20:43  <Yexo> planetmaker: are there somewhere instructions for copying the default newgrf project?
14:21:08  <planetmaker> not yet really... except in the example_newgrf project itself
14:21:13  <Alberth> andythenorth_: that would work of course
14:21:14  <planetmaker> which is by default still NFO
14:21:35  <planetmaker> I should change that :-)
14:21:43  <Alberth> but eg prevents installation at the general pythons site-packages
14:21:49  <andythenorth_> yes
14:22:00  <andythenorth_> in certain development cases, that's considered a benefit :)
14:22:05  <planetmaker> mind if I add the photoshop windows palette file to NML?
14:22:16  <Yexo> of course not
14:22:40  <Alberth> andythenorth_: sure, we do such stuff at work too, but your average windows user?
14:22:47  <andythenorth_> dunno
14:22:50  <AveiMil> Can you tell me the correct syntax?
14:22:59  <andythenorth_> compared to installing multiple packages manually?
14:23:13  <andythenorth_> I am used to buildout as a one-stop thing we give to people like me and testers
14:23:29  <planetmaker> AveiMil: param[40] = 1.5
14:23:32  <andythenorth_> it avoids having developers wandering around building python environments all the time
14:23:38  <andythenorth_> on other people's laptops
14:23:38  <Alberth> hmm, good point.
14:23:40  <planetmaker> and then use param[40] instead of your named constant
14:23:59  <andythenorth_> it's also the only sane way to deploy python apps to production webservers...
14:24:12  <andythenorth_> I can advocate buildout, but I can't create one :P
14:24:32  <Alberth> more difficult than NFO :p
14:24:46  <AveiMil> param[40] = 1.5
14:24:46  <AveiMil> item(FEAT_TRAINS, KirbyPaulTankSteam, 0) { property { cost_factor: 7*param[40]; } }
14:24:48  <AveiMil> like so?
14:24:57  <planetmaker> I think it'll work, yes
14:25:04  <AveiMil> what's the 40?
14:25:09  <planetmaker> a number ;-)
14:25:09  <AveiMil> can it be any number?
14:25:15  <planetmaker> 0 ... 64
14:25:17  <AveiMil> ok
14:25:23  <Yexo> <@planetmaker> AveiMil: param[40] = 1.5 <- that doesn't work, param[40] will be either 1 or 2
14:25:26  <planetmaker> it's the newgrf parameter number
14:25:41  <planetmaker> oh... hm. Ok :-)
14:25:42  <Alberth> planetmaker: I was sooo tempted to link to wikipedia 'definition of a number' :p
14:26:20  <Yexo> AveiMil: you can work around that by doing: param[40] = 100; (100 = 1, 150 = 1.5, etc.)
14:26:32  <planetmaker> ok... so param[40] = ... ^
14:26:38  <Yexo> item(FEAT_TRAINS, KirbyPaulTankSteam, 0) { property { cost_factor: 7*param[40]/100; } }
14:26:43  <planetmaker> ^
14:26:45  <planetmaker> :-)
14:27:32  * andythenorth_ has two releases to do :0
14:32:08  <AveiMil> hm, on this line: item(FEAT_TRAINS, KirbyPaulTankSteam, 0) { property { cost_factor: 7*param[10]/100; } }
14:32:10  <AveiMil> I get error: nmlc: "input", line 30: Syntax error, unexpected token "item"
14:33:04  <Yexo> the line before that has an error
14:33:11  <Yexo> probably you forgot the semicolon
14:33:40  <AveiMil> you are brilliant
14:34:27  <planetmaker> just seen that too often ;-)
14:34:58  <AveiMil> Well that works perfectly
14:35:08  <AveiMil> now it's easy to play-test with different values
14:35:23  <planetmaker> :-)
14:35:41  <planetmaker> AveiMil: make use of 'reloadnewgrfs' in the console
14:36:01  <AveiMil> then I don't need to create a new game?
14:36:04  <planetmaker> yes
14:36:08  <AveiMil> nice
14:36:23  <planetmaker> just copy your updated newgrf over the existing one and use that console command
14:36:32  <AveiMil> yeah, my build.cmd does that
14:36:38  <planetmaker> :-)
14:36:51  <AveiMil> xcopy "%ProjectDir%%ProjectNMLDir%%ProjectNMLFile%.grf" "%OpenTDDDataDir%" /Y
14:36:51  <AveiMil> :D
14:36:51  <planetmaker> my makefile does that for me :-P
14:36:56  <planetmaker> make install
14:36:57  <AveiMil> ah
14:37:21  <planetmaker> and it would / should work for everyone, independent of OS
14:42:01  <Alberth> except some OSes don't provide 'make' by default
14:42:33  <Hirundo> Some quite popular OSes sold by M$?
14:42:56  <planetmaker> Alberth: unfortunately yes
14:43:12  <planetmaker> those are also known to be quite slow when running that
14:43:13  <Alberth> could be, it has always been beyond me how you can do actual work at such systems :p
14:43:24  <planetmaker> And ... I actually thought to complement the project by a set of bat files
14:43:32  <mikl> planetmaker: mm, not sure what you mean, it's not me that created the recipe :)
14:44:07  <Alberth> planetmaker: just give them a linux install DVD instead :p
14:44:11  <planetmaker> mikl: I have even no idea what file format that is and what purpose it serves. I've never seen that before
14:45:06  <mikl> planetmaker: it's a recipe for an open source package manager for Mac OS X called homebrew that builds OpenTTD :)
14:45:19  <planetmaker> ah. Never heart of that
14:45:21  <Alberth> I once saw a game that listed 'linux' as a install dependency :)
14:45:31  <planetmaker> mikl: what about rather creating a macports package?
14:45:41  <planetmaker> haha @ Alberth :-)
14:46:22  <mikl> planetmaker: I think there is one already. I don’t use Macports, though :)
14:46:34  <planetmaker> there's none I know...

14:49:44  <Jolteon> Hm, is it possible to make towns stop building bridges ridiculous lengths to 'nearby' land?
14:49:49  <AveiMil> item(FEAT_TRAINS, KirbyPaulTankSteam, 0) { property { cost_factor: 7*param[10]/100; running_cost_factor: 50*param[20]/100; } }
14:49:52  <AveiMil> I can do that on 1 line?
14:50:06  <AveiMil> (adding running_cost using the same method)
14:50:09  <planetmaker> I think so. But why not make it readable
14:50:32  <AveiMil> think this is best way to read it, otherwise there's sooo many lines per engine
14:50:37  <planetmaker> if you defined both param[10] and param[20] before
14:50:47  <AveiMil> yes
14:50:48  <planetmaker> AveiMil: yes. one per property
14:50:55  <planetmaker> that's the best readable you can get
14:50:59  <planetmaker> many lines per engine don't hurt
14:51:10  <AveiMil> it depends, since all the lines are the same
14:51:16  <AveiMil> there's no need to have many lines per engine
14:51:23  <planetmaker> oh well.
14:51:23  <AveiMil> it's easier to get an overview by having it on 1 line
14:51:33  <AveiMil> maybe if you have different properties or all and stuff
14:51:37  * planetmaker disagrees, but not me who looses overview
14:51:38  <AveiMil> then it's better to split
14:53:06  *** Xaroth [~Xaroth@] has joined #openttd
14:58:59  <mikl> planetmaker: now its on the Wiki if anyone’s interested. Works great on my Mac: :)
15:00:01  <planetmaker> I would have preferred to not have it as the first choice... I'll redirect all support requests to you, ok?
15:01:15  <mikl> well, it is certainly the easiest option, but feel free to rearrange
15:02:18  <planetmaker> well. I'll refer all people with problems to you. Can you give me your e-mail for that? :-)
15:03:41  <AveiMil> Did someone mention taht running_cost value can max be 255?
15:04:37  <Hirundo> That's what the documentation says
15:05:50  <planetmaker> :-O what a nice advice...
15:06:06  <planetmaker> "to avoid using sudo when installing packages, change the owner recursively on /usr/local directory
15:06:08  <planetmaker> sudo chown -R `whoami` /usr/local"
15:06:15  <AveiMil> <- why is there no PR_RUNNING_TRAIN_ELECTRIC for monorail or maglev? those are considered electric?
15:06:23  <Alberth> very nice :p
15:07:23  * planetmaker isn't impressed to find that on the 3rd page of the 'homebrew' page directly
15:07:39  <planetmaker> as piece of official advice how to handle that system
15:09:54  <planetmaker> omfg
15:09:57  <planetmaker> "We recommend you delete /usr/local/include and /usr/local/lib"
15:10:14  <planetmaker> those pages are highly dangerous to those who don't know
15:10:40  <mikl> planetmaker: not neccesarily. Mac OS X does not ship anything in /usr/local/
15:10:58  <planetmaker> so what?
15:11:09  <planetmaker> The worse is the advice to 'just' delete it
15:11:17  <mikl> so people who don't know will likely not have anything in those folders
15:11:19  <planetmaker> Because - if they're there - they're there for a reason

15:13:10  <Qantourisc> *cheeze*
15:13:22  <Qantourisc> you'd think peaple in a constructive game would be well
15:13:25  <Qantourisc> constructive
15:13:42  <planetmaker> mikl: all this and other changes suggested there make be believe that all advice on the homebrew pages are at best dangerious and malicous at worst.
15:13:58  <planetmaker> those may work for one person, but NEVER can be considered general advice
15:14:16  <planetmaker> especially none given to people who do NOT know the internals
15:14:45  <AveiMil> reloadnewgrfs <- error command not found
15:14:58  <planetmaker> AveiMil: you might need to enable the newgrf_developer_tools

15:15:12  <planetmaker> in the console
15:16:24  <AveiMil> ty
15:16:47  <AveiMil> unknown setting it says
15:17:30  <mikl> planetmaker: well, they are hardly malicious, but I see your point
15:18:08  <Alberth> AveiMil: you need a nightly for that setting I think
15:20:33  <mikl> planetmaker: they do say "If in doubt, don’t delete this stuff, but be aware that this may cause build issues." right below that headline though :)
15:21:00  <planetmaker> AveiMil: oh, yes. You need a nightly for those goodies
15:21:36  <planetmaker> mikl: excuse me, but I added a strong warning to our page where homebrew is linked. I fear for our users.
15:23:07  <mikl> planetmaker: well, as I said earlier, you can't break OS X by deleting /usr/local
15:23:26  <mikl> but you could ostensibly break software that you have build manually using gcc
15:23:57  <Yexo> <AveiMil> why is there no PR_RUNNING_TRAIN_ELECTRIC for monorail or maglev? those are considered electric? <- yes, monorail and maglev trains use the PR_RUNNING_TRAIN_ELECTRIC base
15:26:08  <planetmaker> mikl: just so much: you have no clue how much on my system would break, if I just deleted /usr/local
15:26:38  <planetmaker> I might still be able to boot. But I'd not stop swearing before sunset
15:27:15  <planetmaker> and "being able to boot" is not the same as "safe advice"
15:27:42  <planetmaker> it's the same as advising to delete everything in /Users
15:28:00  <planetmaker> it's save. You'll still be able to boot. Oh well
15:28:27  <mikl> planetmaker: that's ridiculous. The average OS X user is unlikely to have anything of value in /usr/local
15:28:36  <mikl> you can hardly say the same for /Users

16:16:49  <frosch123> using unavailable variables is going to break somewhen
16:18:20  <andythenorth_> is there a better way?
16:18:27  <andythenorth_> can I just check the cargo?
16:18:31  <andythenorth_> or is that too obvious :P
16:18:44  <frosch123> no, the cargotype gives you the default cargo
16:19:13  <frosch123> as i said, you can merge varct2 chains later, you do not have to duplicate the whole chain for purchase list
16:19:53  <andythenorth_> I am failing to see how?
16:20:09  <andythenorth_> hmm
16:20:14  <andythenorth_> I see at least one way
16:20:36  <andythenorth_> two varacts handling cbs
16:20:48  <frosch123> yes
16:22:42  <Qantourisc> weird INSTALL_DATA_DIR is configured correctly now, but still no go

16:25:42  <planetmaker> AveiMil: as I said... it's hardly visible what you do with the single engines due to your formating
16:26:27  <planetmaker> param[10] = 100;                       // Steam Engines Purchase Cost (150 = 50% more expensive) <-- I'd write that comment as "in % of the default purchase cost"

16:28:50  <Qantourisc> bring the debuggers !
16:29:35  <AveiMil> but to do this with trucks as well
16:29:40  <AveiMil> I just have to start doing it manually?
16:30:47  <AveiMil> and about the formatting it's very simple in my head, each line is one engine and each line does the same really, so it's easy to view
16:30:59  <AveiMil> if you know what's on 1 line, you know the others
16:31:37  <Qantourisc> What was the program one could use to watch a porgrams kernel calls again ?

16:56:15  <Qantourisc> nvm accepts food :D
16:56:19  <andythenorth_> some kind of shop
16:56:34  <andythenorth_> right now there's only one kind
16:56:37  <andythenorth_> in future there'll be more
16:56:47  <Qantourisc> so not town ?
16:56:56  <andythenorth_> yes in town
16:57:06  <andythenorth_> but provided as an industry not a house - for various reasons
16:57:23  <andythenorth_> there could be more layouts for it in future, but depends on this:
16:57:23  <andythenorth_>
16:58:34  * Qantourisc confused
16:58:43  <Qantourisc> if i got a but-load of "tons of food" where to put them ?
16:58:59  <planetmaker> into that store?
16:59:06  <andythenorth_> what climate are you playing?
16:59:18  <Qantourisc> temperance or how it is called
16:59:22  <andythenorth_> send them to the store
16:59:30  <Qantourisc> the "first" one
17:00:00  <Qantourisc> omg found it
17:00:04  <Qantourisc> they are hard to spot :D
17:00:09  <Qantourisc> has to use the map to find them
17:00:12  <Qantourisc> nvm :) thx
17:00:33  <andythenorth_> one of the reasons they are an industry is that at least then they appear on the map :)
17:01:56  <Qantourisc> I think i got more then i barganded for :)
17:02:07  <Qantourisc> FIPS is not super easy :D
17:02:12  <andythenorth_> not currently
17:02:23  <planetmaker> did anyone claim so?
17:02:27  <andythenorth_> in future we'll give the option for an easier version
17:02:31  <Qantourisc> :)
17:02:39  <Qantourisc> now doubting between normal or FIPS
17:02:57  <andythenorth_> FIRS webpage here helps a bit
17:03:14  <andythenorth_> I'd play normal until you're bored of it
17:03:24  <andythenorth_> then try PBI or FIRS
17:03:30  <andythenorth_> it helps make the game interesting for longer
17:03:34  <Qantourisc> ok
17:03:43  <andythenorth_> play all three climates - the industries are different
17:03:48  <andythenorth_> don't play Toyland though :P

17:12:53  <Qantourisc> or don't ?

17:13:15  *** enr1x [] has joined #openttd
17:13:48  <Terkhen> yeah, I never was able to play on toyland without getting a headache before opengfx
17:13:52  <Jolteon> You know what i'd like to see? I'd like to see the menu screen vary in landscape.
17:14:06  <Jolteon> Like alternate from temperate to arctic to tropical.
17:15:34  <planetmaker> make a newgrf
17:16:01  <planetmaker> or do you mean the title game?
17:16:35  <Jolteon> I mean the 'game' that plays in the background of the menu when you first open the game.
17:16:39  <Jolteon> Kinda bland how its always the same.
17:17:08  <planetmaker> Jolteon: make a new one for the 1.1 release. The competition is up and running
17:17:16  <Jolteon> Eh, no point.
17:17:21  <Alberth> Qantourisc: I never plan a main line, I build a lot of unconnected lines
17:17:24  <Jolteon> From what i've seen, it'll be temperate based, no matter what.
17:17:36  <Qantourisc> Alberth: also a plan :)
17:17:36  <planetmaker> aha.
17:17:39  <Jolteon> I just think it'd be nice if the game alternated between 3 different ones, in different regions.
17:17:55  <Jolteon> or even the exact same game, just a different region.
17:18:33  <Alberth> Qantourisc: although if you connect everything to one line, it looks very impressive :)
17:18:38  <planetmaker> now it gets boring with an attitude of "I can't be bothered to even make a submission for a good new title game" :-(
17:18:42  <Qantourisc> :)
17:19:01  <planetmaker> but at the same time wanting FOUR of them being present
17:19:07  <Jolteon> three.
17:19:18  <Jolteon> The day OpenTTD advertises toyland to any amount is the day I quit it.
17:19:25  <planetmaker> good bye :-)
17:19:27  <Jolteon> Ridiculous thing, should be bombed :p
17:19:37  <Alberth> Jolteon: that can be arranged :)
17:19:42  <Jolteon> Was Chris Sawyer drunk when he thought of it? :p
17:20:21  <Jolteon> planetmaker; I can't be 'bothered' cause I know full well it won't get chosen.
17:20:29  <Jolteon> A) It won't be temperate, B) I'm not that good of a player.
17:21:12  <planetmaker> I don't know where you get your premises from
17:21:27  <planetmaker> I can't judge B) - but why do you think A) holds?
17:21:53  <Jolteon> Temperate is the mode most people play, its logical to assume OpenTTD devs will chose it over another, as it advertises the game to a more broader range of players.
17:22:18  <Jolteon> that, and i've never actually seen an OpenTTD opening game thats not temperate anyway, so why break with tradition?
17:22:30  <planetmaker> btw, Alberth, did you say earlier that TE is not displayed with original acceleration?
17:22:43  <andythenorth_> Jolteon: you are really rather wrong :P
17:22:49  <andythenorth_> go look at the title screen
17:22:50  <Alberth> I did

17:41:30  * Jolteon smirks from the corner.
17:42:11  <Jolteon> So what is the title game, planetmaker? Is it just a saved game OpenTTD loads as it loads the game and plays in the background?
17:42:16  <planetmaker> I'll be much more thorough with my next ban. This channel is about OpenTTD. And any questions for wares or downloads for other games will result in an instant ban.
17:42:30  <planetmaker> Jolteon: yes
17:42:44  <planetmaker> It's called opntitle.dat
17:42:50  <TGV> Because I wanted to
17:43:02  <planetmaker> TGV: I care very little about that
17:43:10  <Jolteon> So what, is it a full saved game, or just a good bit that was cut out and shoved into a .dat file?
17:43:20  <TGV> no little
17:43:23  <planetmaker> Jolteon: it's a full savegame
17:43:31  <Jolteon> ah, interesting.
17:43:36  <planetmaker> just rename any savegame you like and copy it over your existing opntitle.dat
17:43:55  <planetmaker> Just mind that newgrfs might make issues, should you not have them. Same with AIs

21:19:48  <AveiMil> nmlc: "input", line 250: Unknown property name: max_speed
21:19:53  <AveiMil> What's the correct property name?
21:20:01  <AveiMil> I got max_speed from
21:22:00  <planetmaker> you might rather want to check the nml documentation
21:22:03  *** theholyduck [~holyduck@] has joined #openttd
21:22:20  <AveiMil> it dosent' say the properties for airplanes
21:22:24  <AveiMil> only for train engines
21:22:36  <AveiMil> speed (km/h)
21:22:39  <AveiMil> so perhaps only 'speed'?
21:22:45  <planetmaker> perhaps
21:23:02  <planetmaker> I know that it talks about properties common to all vehicles
21:23:12  <planetmaker> then about trains. then rv, then ships then planes
21:24:38  *** Alberth [] has left #openttd []
21:24:39  <AveiMil> it was 'speed'
21:24:54  <planetmaker> yes :-)
21:28:09  <planetmaker> please keep such questions also in the public channel. Others might be able to answer that when I'm not around. And others might want to know the answers, too
21:28:21  <AveiMil> aye
21:28:38  <AveiMil> just noticed the channel was dead for a while, hoping a pm would notify you with sound or something :D
21:28:46  <planetmaker> especially the latter saves to answer the same question(s) more often ;-)

21:32:48  <AveiMil> ?
21:33:01  <planetmaker> dictionary?
21:34:26  <planetmaker> something on water...
21:34:35  <planetmaker> or in. or both
21:34:36  <AveiMil> that's a word? ll
21:34:44  <planetmaker> guess. yes
21:35:11  <planetmaker> you've never played with ships, eh?
21:35:26  <planetmaker> or never with the English version of OpenTTD...
21:35:48  <AveiMil> I've probably played only 5 hours of OpenTTD
21:35:56  <AveiMil> lol
21:36:00  <planetmaker> he
21:36:02  <AveiMil> and 10 hours doing this
21:36:12  <AveiMil> Played TTD as a kid, 12 years old or so
21:36:17  <planetmaker> that's a pretty peculiar ratio ;-)
21:36:25  <AveiMil> yeah :D
21:36:44  <AveiMil> but I felt the game was off when I could build without knowing what I'm doing
21:36:50  <AveiMil> and still beat ai/not bankrupt
21:38:27  <Yexo> I'm quite sure I've spend more time coding for openttd (including related things like nml) than playing the game
21:38:42  <AveiMil> :)
21:38:42  <Yexo> AveiMil: does list "speed" under "plane properties"
21:38:44  <planetmaker> :-) Yexo yes, there are people like you
21:39:02  <planetmaker> And... without those it definitely would not be where it is.
21:39:11  <planetmaker> I'm not even sure on which side of the balance I am.
21:39:11  <AveiMil> Yexo, ah, never saw that page
21:39:25  <AveiMil> any of you play Civilization 4?
21:39:40  <Yexo> a bit, but not for long
21:39:51  <planetmaker> I'd need to install windows for that... I tested it in a VM and it was sluggish there
21:40:06  <AveiMil> After all the expansion and with a mod that's one of the best games in the history of games imho.
21:40:15  <AveiMil> Extremely challanging versus AI
21:40:16  <Terkhen> me too, even including the time I played original TTD
21:40:17  <planetmaker> every civ was that
21:40:26  * Yexo prefers civilization II above civ 4
21:40:31  <planetmaker> :-)
21:40:35  <AveiMil> Civ4 is king
21:40:37  <AveiMil> civ5 is junk
21:40:41  <planetmaker> Civ I was the first game I owned which was not pirated
21:40:54  <planetmaker> and it was damn new back then
21:41:01  <AveiMil> Civ I was the first game I played over IPX
21:41:29  <__ln__> AveiMil: are you saying it had multiplayer support?
21:41:46  <AveiMil> yeah
21:41:46  <Yexo> again I have to disagree with you AveiMil, I think civ 5 was better than civ 4
21:42:06  <AveiMil> Yexo, because you're probably a casual player :)
21:42:31  <Yexo> could be, I haven't played either version for very long
21:42:42  *** Brianett1 [] has joined #openttd
21:42:44  <planetmaker> the only two I played much were I and II
21:42:51  <Terkhen> civ4 is a great game
21:43:19  <__ln__> I don't recall I having any kind of multiplayer things, but... it was a long time ago.
21:43:21  <AveiMil> Trying to beat Civilization 4 on Immortal/Diety = you will litterally take 1-2 years practicing/learning to get good enough
21:43:32  <planetmaker> yes
21:43:50  <planetmaker> but then... there's a reason I play OpenTTD ;-)
21:44:06  <AveiMil> hehe
21:44:25  <planetmaker> I set my own goals and 'winning' conditions here
21:44:27  <AveiMil> OpenTTD is great, but I tihnk it really needs victory conditions implemented
21:44:38  <planetmaker> it has. 1000 points in 2050
21:44:47  <planetmaker> did you ever reach tycoon status?
21:44:54  <AveiMil> OTHER victory conditions :)
21:44:57  <planetmaker> tycoon of the century?
21:45:04  <AveiMil> So you could play to 1970 and win/loose
21:45:07  <AveiMil> if you prefer
21:45:28  <planetmaker> so... just an adjustable victory year? ;-)
21:45:36  <planetmaker> I think we once had that...
21:45:41  <AveiMil> haha, yeah and MORE conditions
21:45:43  <__ln__> AveiMil: the ideas of introducing military concepts into OpenTTD have been rejected, so there can't be VICTORY.
21:45:52  <AveiMil> like first company to transport 50203103103 passengers
21:45:54  <AveiMil> or something
21:46:07  <planetmaker> __ln__: that'd mean that there's no winner when playing bridge
21:46:11  <AveiMil> victory = military?
21:47:01  <AveiMil> Victory conditions would certainly make this game far better. Great for community as well, players get to compare and strive for "achivements"
21:47:08  <AveiMil> and in multiplayer it's golden
21:47:27  <planetmaker> AveiMil: yes, possibly.
21:50:01  <AveiMil> <- lol I've spent all that on that
21:50:11  <andythenorth_> planetmaker: the binary in that dmg crashes on launch
21:50:22  <planetmaker> :-O
21:50:36  <planetmaker> can you give me the crash log?
21:51:09  <planetmaker> hmpf...
21:52:07  <ccfreak2k> Maybe even meta-achievements!
21:52:14  *** HerzogDeXtEr1 [~Flex@] has joined #openttd
21:52:27  <ccfreak2k> Like suggesting yet another idea for pathfinding and/or signalling.

21:56:00  <planetmaker> <-- maybe give you ideas AveiMil  wrt goals ;-)
21:56:10  <planetmaker> and what others would (also) like...
21:56:18  <avdg> :)
21:56:31  *** Brianetta [] has quit [Quit: TschÌß]
21:56:38  *** Brianett1 is now known as Brianetta
21:57:08  <AveiMil> Basically I did not like basecost mods I found available. Like AlternateBaseCostMod was decent, until I found out building a tunnel cost 15 million pounds
21:57:19  <AveiMil> and terraforming 1 tile of land cost a few million or something
21:57:29  <AveiMil> it's fine to increase their cost, but that was redicilous
21:57:31  *** HerzogDeXtEr [~Flex@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:57:36  <AveiMil> migth as well disable that feature
21:58:20  <planetmaker> AveiMil: well... the base costs mods available allow you to change any and every setting which is there...
21:58:28  <planetmaker> :-)
21:58:39  <AveiMil> couldnt figure out how to do taht with 1.0.4
21:58:48  <AveiMil> and it's more fun to learn this my self from scratch
21:58:54  <planetmaker> using the completely user-unfriendly parameter settings ;-)
21:59:06  <AveiMil> and I doubt it would allow me to change base cost per train category
21:59:09  <planetmaker> that's why nightlies rock :-P
21:59:35  <AveiMil> now, for instance trucks, for each "generation" the new trucks are more cost efficient in terms of running cost, but they're expensive
21:59:41  <AveiMil> so it's a trade off, to upgrade or not
21:59:56  <AveiMil> the original the new bus cost about the same as the old
22:00:41  <AveiMil> in*
22:00:50  <planetmaker> andythenorth_: do you have a crash.log for me?
22:01:22  <planetmaker> AveiMil: that only works as long as you don't enable any vehicle newgrf ;-)
22:01:39  <andythenorth_> planetmaker: right now I have a baby :D
22:01:46  <planetmaker> :-)
22:02:03  <planetmaker> give him some beer and he'll sleep well :-P
22:02:12  <AveiMil> that's true, my mod only supports default viehcle sets

22:08:06  <AveiMil> <- if your up for a challange :)
22:09:02  <planetmaker> AveiMil: and now you modify it such, that you can set the build costs per user-setting parameter
22:09:09  <planetmaker> That'd make it much more useful :-)
22:09:11  <SpComb> mm beer
22:09:31  <Yexo> planetmaker: nml doesn't have documentation yet for user settings
22:09:32  <planetmaker> basically it'd mean to 'just' add the interface / parameter description
22:09:50  <planetmaker> Yexo: yes... He'll need to have to look at SwedishRails for that
22:10:07  <planetmaker> which covers IIRC every possibility there

22:14:05  *** last_evolution [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
22:16:57  <AveiMil> planetmaker, will perhaps look into that at a later time
22:17:32  <AveiMil> my main goal is to just make a solid/good configuration
22:17:36  <AveiMil> that provides good gameplay
22:18:07  <planetmaker> not really difficult...
22:19:33  <planetmaker> AveiMil: that might become an option actually for OpenGFX+Trains or RV... in principle it's possible
22:23:33  <AveiMil> 'that'?
22:23:53  <planetmaker> modifying the vehicle purchase costs via parameter
22:24:29  <AveiMil> ok
22:24:54  <AveiMil> Haven't looked into OpenGFX+Trains
22:25:01  <AveiMil> is taht new train sets?
22:25:11  <planetmaker> you don't happen to be willing to install mercurial and get a checkout of one of those sets?
22:25:46  <planetmaker> OpenGFX+Trains currently is a re-definition of the wagons. So that you can transport all possible cargos. And which allow refit to a number of them each
22:28:20  <AveiMil> I don't understand.
22:28:36  <AveiMil> All possible cargos with 1 wagon? eh
22:28:43  <Eddi|zuHause> something like "old wagons, new cargos"
22:28:47  <planetmaker> all possible cargos in 9 wagons
22:29:23  <planetmaker> obviously you cannot transport oil in the wagon designed for passengers
22:29:25  <AveiMil> I'm not following, are you saying there's new wagon types?
22:29:32  <planetmaker> but transporting water is possible after cleaning
22:29:32  <Terkhen> the refit idea only made sense to me after I started playing with new industry GRFs
22:29:41  <AveiMil> There's more than 9 wagons in my game now so I'm not following.
22:29:44  <planetmaker> Terkhen: yeah :-)
22:30:02  <planetmaker> AveiMil: :-) I guess you just need to try it out
22:30:15  <planetmaker> download it. Add it to your game. And see
22:30:44  <planetmaker> an early preview version is available from bananas as OpenGFX+Trains 0.1.0
22:30:49  <Eddi|zuHause> AveiMil: there can be like 32 cargo types in one game. having 32 different cargo wagons makes no sense. so you combine things like "coal and ore can be carried in the same wagon"
22:33:04  *** DDR [~DDR@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:54:37  <AveiMil> so there's a lot of cargo types trains can't transport?
22:54:42  <AveiMil> 32 cargo types? really?
22:55:00  <AveiMil> trains already have coal wagons and iron ore hoppers :)
22:55:08  <AveiMil> better example?
22:56:50  <Eddi|zuHause> AveiMil: industry sets can define new cargos, like sand or milk
22:57:10  <AveiMil> ah
22:57:18  <AveiMil> are they non-standard industry sets?
22:57:30  <Eddi|zuHause> AveiMil: so you want to define the wagons like "the wagon that can transport water, can also transport other liquids like milk"
22:57:51  <AveiMil> Liquid Transport Wagon :P
22:58:09  <Eddi|zuHause> or "the wagon that can transport coal and ore can also transport other cargo like sand and gravel"
22:58:27  <AveiMil> yeah
22:59:09  <Eddi|zuHause> AveiMil: this way, you can create a fairly short list of "cargo classes", which all cargos can somehow easily be divided in
22:59:11  *** Cybertinus [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:59:17  <Eddi|zuHause> then you define one wagon for each cargo class
22:59:30  <Eddi|zuHause> instead of one wagon for each cargo type
