07:41:53  <xiong> Good morning!
07:44:01  <xiong> How was this station built? ( -- When I try to build tunnels side-by-side, with level track between them, I run into difficulty. The level track is unsupported on both sides; it can't be shored up with embankments so as to remain level. Are those level tracks bridged?? I can't tell from the graphics set.
07:45:46  <xiong> I can duplicate that by bridging the level track, but very short bridges incur a severe penalty.
07:47:10  <xiong> I have also worked on a similar design in which, instead of alternating entries and exits, they are paired off. This is, at least, constructible.
07:50:58  <planetmaker> good morning
07:51:11  <planetmaker> xiong: note that the tunnels there are NOT side-by-side
07:51:42  <planetmaker> and it's clearly visible that there are bridges involved
07:53:28  *** ar3k [] has joined #openttd
07:53:37  <xiong> The tunnels are on alternate tracks -- if you number the tracks from the appropriate side, the even tracks are tunnels, the odd tracks are level. That's what I meant by "side-by-side, with level track between them".
07:54:15  <xiong> It's not clearly visible to me that there are bridges. That's what I meant by "I can't tell from the graphics set."
07:54:51  <xiong> And I still don't see the point, due to the short bridge penalty.
07:55:34  *** X-2 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
07:56:00  <xiong> Pairing the entrances and exits -- that is, 1-2 entry, 3-4 exit, 5-6 entry, 7-8 exit and so on -- removes the necessity of bridges.
07:57:41  <Rubidium> moi
07:57:49  <Terkhen> good morning Rubidium
07:57:55  <Terkhen> and planetmaker :)

08:09:57  <xiong> I would have liked to understand what that guy had in mind.
08:12:35  <Qantourisc> xiong: when did he say it ?
08:12:36  *** JVassie_ [~James@] has joined #openttd
08:12:40  <Qantourisc> maybe i understand ?
08:13:26  <xiong> Qantourisc, I pasted in a link to a shot.
08:13:43  <Qantourisc> xiong: whats with the shot ?
08:14:08  <xiong> Um, rather than just blindly repeat myself, please check the scrollback and ask for clarification, which I'll be happy to provide, if I can.
08:14:25  <Qantourisc> when did you say it a few mins ago ?
08:14:36  <xiong> Yah; you've been on.
08:14:43  <Qantourisc> but not reading :)
08:14:55  <Qantourisc> i'll check the last hour logs but no more without a timestamp
08:14:56  <xiong> Sorry; do you have scrollback?
08:15:32  <xiong> Not so far back, not at all. May have gone off your screen but it was just half an hour ago.
08:15:53  <xiong> ( is the shot in question.
08:16:47  <Qantourisc> xiong: will you host a game or shall i ?
08:17:02  <Qantourisc> then we could sandbox it and see the problem ?
08:17:50  <xiong> Well, it's not dynamic. I just can't build that design without using very short bridges.
08:18:20  <xiong> ... which seems, to me, to make moot the advantage of tunnels on the other set of tracks.
08:18:40  <Qantourisc> xiong: the image proves you can use tunnels
08:18:41  <xiong> I can theorize all day about why he built what he built.
08:19:18  <Qantourisc> Do you wish to build the screenshot ?
08:19:18  <xiong> Qantourisc, Look closely. I can barely see it; the graphics set is unfamiliar to me. The tracks that don't tunnel are bridged -- level bridges, very short.
08:19:39  <Qantourisc> i see it perfectly
08:19:46  <Qantourisc> that's why i offerted to host a game...
08:20:19  <xiong> Sorry; I just don't seem to be making myself clear. I can duplicate that design, given the short bridges.
08:20:37  <Qantourisc> the image has NO bridges
08:20:47  <planetmaker> Qantourisc: it has.
08:20:52  <planetmaker> three
08:20:57  <Qantourisc> then i got the wrong image somehow :)
08:21:03  * Qantourisc repastes the link
08:21:23  <Qantourisc> aaa yes
08:21:24  <xiong> Ah. Well, now, that is the question. I can barely make them out, and are suspicious of them, because they make no sense to me. They are required but their price -- in terms of speed -- seems excessive.
08:22:08  <xiong> Nor are they required to accomplish the same general goal, if entrances and exits are paired before alternation.
08:22:15  <planetmaker> then build the setup without. It's feasable
08:22:25  <planetmaker> exactly.
08:22:27  <xiong> "without"?
08:22:31  <Qantourisc> bridges ?
08:22:34  <planetmaker> yes
08:23:06  <xiong> That's my whole point. I can't build that design, exactly as shown, without using short bridges. I'd like to try to understand why they were used, if anyone has some idea of it.
08:23:37  <planetmaker> they're fast enough for monorail. IIRC those are tubular bridges
08:23:53  <xiong> At first, I hoped I might just be ignorant of some basic thing, and that the design could be built, say, by putting the level track in before lowering the land, or the reverse, both of which I've tried.
08:24:03  *** Fuco [] has joined #openttd
08:24:21  <Qantourisc> xiong: there is another solution:
08:24:25  <Qantourisc> lower the station level
08:24:34  <xiong> Another thought of mine was that the short bridge penalty was considered irrelevant, since the trains must slow on approach to the station anyway.
08:24:51  <Qantourisc> i was thinking that too :D
08:24:57  <Qantourisc> also
08:25:01  <Qantourisc> another solution:
08:25:04  <Qantourisc> use them on the exit
08:25:19  <Qantourisc> when you are using weigth x10 your trains won't be up to speed anyway :D
08:25:40  <xiong> Um, no, Sir, sorry. Same issue. You can't have tracks on two levels in strict alternation without bridges. I don't think.
08:26:11  <Qantourisc> wait let me cook up a screenshot
08:27:59  <xiong> Hmm... I'm doing something now with two levels of tunnels.
08:28:48  <xiong> I think there's a short tunnel penalty too, though. I read up on that... now I need to track down the page again.
08:32:42  <Qantourisc>
08:32:46  <Qantourisc> that ?
08:34:48  <xiong> Okay, well, that only uses one level of tunnels and none are very short. But none of the tracks are level, either. That certainly should work okay, provided the tracks that don't tunnel are used as the entrances.
08:35:20  <Qantourisc> just an idea / variation
08:35:24  <Qantourisc> might inspire a better idea :)
08:35:31  <xiong> I tend to dislike asymmetric solutions. Trains seem to slide toward the shorter route.
08:35:45  <Qantourisc> it's also a dragt
08:35:47  <Qantourisc> *draft
08:35:57  <Qantourisc> quick slapup, i didn't look for symmetic :)
08:36:06  <planetmaker> Qantourisc: you now have in your solution half the tracks accessible only at a speed of 60km/h or so
08:36:13  <planetmaker> much less at least than thebridges
08:36:28  <xiong> Sometimes, of course, that's the way to go. When I enter an asymmetric junction, I tend to try to bring trains up to a waiting spot before or afterwards.
08:37:00  <planetmaker> also your tunnels are longer, such throughput is also limited
08:37:09  <Qantourisc> planetmaker: sorry i'm not used to monrail :)
08:37:19  <Qantourisc> planetmaker: my trains at run at 75km :)
08:37:26  <planetmaker> my arguments hold for every train track
08:37:28  <xiong> planetmaker, Are you saying, speed limited because of the slope? Or the tight curves?
08:37:35  <planetmaker> curves
08:37:52  <xiong> Yah, that's another issue. But I don't find those tunnels long.
08:38:14  <planetmaker> also you need signals between tunnels and the x
08:38:16  <Qantourisc> they are longer, but thats mainly because i just drafterd it
08:38:33  <xiong> Agree that it could be slightly compacted.
08:38:38  <Rubidium> planetmaker: in the wiki version of the terminus you can probably get away with the bridges and use shorted tunnels without any (apparant) downsides
08:38:46  <xiong> Let me show you the pairwise setup, though -- when I get it together.
08:39:25  <xiong> Rubidium, I can't seem to find the page explaining the short bridge penalty; I can't remember if there is a short tunnel penalty.
08:39:32  <xiong> Perhaps I should build a test track.

08:43:42  <Qantourisc> what about just crossing the rails ?
08:43:48  <SpComb> Rubidium: lame!
08:44:15  <Qantourisc> that would cause tomany locks right ?
08:44:21  <SpComb> Rubidium: read the signalling howto's, there's this cool new Path signals feature someone introduced
08:44:36  <Rubidium> SpComb: definitely; I wouldn't design my stations that way. There are way too many places where different tracks would lock eachother up
08:45:15  <Rubidium> it was merely to point out that the previous design can be done without bridges

08:47:59  <SpComb> in real-world terminuses I also join those together
08:48:40  <xiong> ( With TTRS, in 1877. The first two bridges are concrete and limited to 30 mi/h. The rest are suspension and good for 50 mi/h. I assume similar limits in future, scaled up.
08:48:55  <planetmaker> salut SmatZ
08:49:38  <xiong> Ah. Good, Rubidium. You avoid the bridging by staggering the tunnels.
08:50:43  <SpComb>
08:51:07  <SpComb> although it's a bit of a bad example since I had to hack it a little due to some obscure train
08:51:40  <SpComb> since they can come in on one track but leave on two entirely different tracks
08:52:02  <SpComb> no space to build a path from both of those tracks for that one train

09:53:38  <xiong> Rubidium, that is a winner.
09:54:36  <xiong> This all started with my plan to build giant trunk line transfer stations. Playing with a station spread of 18, the question is: How many station platforms can I cram into that square?
09:56:01  <xiong> I figure that half the tracks should be local and the other half the trunk line passing through. More or less. I completed one such station, with 18 trunk tracks, each 8 platforms long; and two sets of 8 local 6-longs. But it's not pretty.

12:18:40  <norbert79> Sorry, security check.. Where is my mind...
12:21:58  <planetmaker> :-P
12:24:38  <AveiMil> planetmaker, you're right, I'm sorry
12:25:25  <AveiMil> but there definetly is a bug, but not directly linked to the variable. I'll make a new bug report and upload the newGrf where it dosen't work.
12:26:34  <planetmaker> please also and especially the source code
12:26:48  <AveiMil> uploading the entire project in a zip
12:27:02  <planetmaker> the grf works certainly by the specs ;-) - just not the compiler
12:28:23  <planetmaker> wow. Google's preview for searches is not that bad...
12:29:13  <AveiMil> done, hope that's better

12:59:50  <Aamodt> it is a Virtual server which runs on VM ESXi ,  checked all "required" libs and such but still failed hm ^^
13:00:48  <Aamodt> Error: Failed to find a graphics set. Please acquire a graphics set for OpenTTD. See section 4.1 of readme.txt. <- is not another executable for server ?  seems like the dedicated server wants to run in graphics mode
13:01:24  <Rubidium> doesn't matter. It still needs the graphics sets
13:02:31  <Rubidium> primarily because "graphics set" isn't a 100% correct description of the file. E.g. it contains some data needed for map generation and some other non-GUI data
13:03:48  <norbert79> Aamodt: To translate it to plain english: You need the basic GRF files for running it. Try using OpenGFX
13:06:03  *** |Jeroen| [] has quit [Quit: oO]
13:07:29  <glevans2> Aamodt, if you have a working client install, just copy over the graphics files from there to your dedicated server's directory structure
13:07:52  <Aamodt> hehe , seems like i got it to work :) have a nice day
13:08:04  <norbert79> You are welcome
13:08:39  <Aamodt> installed it from the svn  : ) but yeah just needed to correct the ttd original files
13:09:00  <norbert79> what did you install from svn?
13:09:15  <norbert79> The server?
13:09:50  <norbert79> (The OpenTTD Server I mean)
13:10:03  <planetmaker> [14:02]	<Rubidium>	primarily because "graphics set" isn't a 100% correct description of the file. E.g. it contains some data needed for map generation and some other non-GUI data <-- maybe we should rename it to "base data" instead of "base graphics"?
13:10:15  <planetmaker> Or should we remove the old terrain generator?
13:10:37  <planetmaker> or re-write it such that it looks for the height maps in openttd.grf / extra.grf?
13:10:38  <TrueBrain> or move it to its own file :p
13:10:42  <planetmaker> :-)
13:11:09  <planetmaker> forget about extra / openttd.grf
13:12:11  <norbert79> Why don't you rename it to 'terrain.grf'? :)
13:12:19  <Rubidium> or just leave it as is and beef up the explanation about the "graphics set" in readme.txt
13:12:23  <TrueBrain> renaming is not an option :p
13:12:47  <Rubidium> norbert79: because Chris, in all his eternal wisdom, didn't put only terrain graphics in the particularly needed GRF
13:12:48  <Aamodt> the openttd.cfg does that apply to the server aswell ?
13:13:09  <Aamodt> yeah
13:13:11  <Aamodt> sorry ; )
13:13:12  <Aamodt> hhe
13:13:19  <norbert79> Rubidium: Never mind, it was just an idea :)
13:13:42  <Rubidium> even then, there's quite some code that in some way depends on at least some meta data from the graphics
13:14:28  <norbert79> Lets rename it to 'Base dataset', and problem solved ;-)
13:14:34  <Rubidium> i.e. there's quite some contamination of _gui.cpp code being called on the server
13:17:40  <Rubidium> norbert79: we're calling them collectively "third party data files"
13:17:40  <norbert79> Rubidium: Weird description, considering, that no else game can provide those GRF, but the original series :)
13:17:40  <Rubidium> naming a subset of the data files as data files is only going to make the problem worse
13:17:40  <Rubidium> norbert79: OpenGFX and friends are from the original series?
13:17:40  <Rubidium> even then, there are at least three different sets of original data files
13:17:40  <Rubidium> (and then I'm excluding the music)
13:17:40  <norbert79> Rubidium: I know... Oh, void my thoughts on this, I had just some rough morning, can't think too well
13:18:45  <planetmaker> [14:18]	<norbert79>	Rubidium: Weird description, considering, that no else game can provide those GRF, but the original series :) <--- pfffft!
13:19:00  <norbert79> planetmaker: Alright, alright... Jeez :)
13:19:36  <planetmaker> we have base graphics and sound for two years, base music for about one :-)
13:21:00  <planetmaker> and their existance basically triggered the step from 0.7 to 1.0 ;-)

15:08:47  <SmatZ> :-)
15:09:55  <AveiMil> Yexo, that dosen't make sense :(
15:10:18  <AveiMil> If I take the entire basecost block and put it in a new NewGRF file where NO viehcles are defined at all.
15:10:27  <AveiMil> The cost for the wagons are increased correctly.
15:10:44  *** Fast2 [] has joined #openttd
15:11:25  *** JVassie [~James@] has joined #openttd
15:11:33  <Eddi|zuHause> base costs behave differently depending on whether you define vehicles or not.
15:13:18  <AveiMil> kind of stupid, it's a lot of work to include all the wagons in the NewGRF
15:14:04  <Yexo> it is made this way to multiple vehicle newgrfs sets can coexist in the same game
15:14:58  <AveiMil> can you call one NewGRF from another?
15:15:33  <planetmaker> yes and no
15:15:48  <planetmaker> there are strong limits on what you can do to other newgrfs
15:16:10  <AveiMil> I've just created a "Wagon_Bug.grf" which has that one line that increases wagon costs.
15:16:17  <AveiMil> and then I want to call taht from my main.grf mod file
15:16:31  <planetmaker> but vehicle newgrfs not writing global base costs was a long decision and proves quite valuable
15:16:33  <AveiMil> dunno if that can work
15:16:37  *** luckz [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:16:50  <Yexo> that can't work as far as I know
15:17:26  <planetmaker> it probably would increase base costs of all wagons in all newgrfs
15:17:56  <planetmaker> but then... one could just use the existing base cost newgrf. That's its whole purpose :-)
15:18:13  <planetmaker> or rather writing a preset for it or so...
15:18:57  <AveiMil> meh, I'll have to add a property for each train instead then
15:19:31  <Belugas> life ain't fair, isn't it?
15:19:32  <AveiMil> I just hope the monorail and maglev wagons rae pretty much identical
15:19:43  <AveiMil> so I only really have to 11 and copy/paste em instead of 33
15:20:25  <Belugas> lucky that yuou do not work on nfo, but on nml :)
15:21:03  <AveiMil> even luckier than I don't really know what that entainls in detail :P
15:21:11  <AveiMil> entails
15:22:17  <AveiMil> have to go through all the aircraft again and balance the cost

23:09:31  <AveiMil> Are AI generally hard coded to expect how much building a railway costs?
23:09:40  *** xiong [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:09:53  <AveiMil> the AI's can't seem to survive with my mod
23:14:39  <AveiMil> There should be a "return to default" otpion for the advanced settings
23:20:11  <Eddi|zuHause> AIs can check the cost
23:20:21  <Yexo> they can, but I'm not sure if many do
23:20:39  *** IPG [] has joined #openttd
23:20:53  <Eddi|zuHause> AveiMil: you can remove parts of openttd.cfg
23:21:04  <Eddi|zuHause> then they are refilled with default values
23:22:25  *** DDR [~DDR@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:27:04  <AveiMil> yeah, I figured that out
23:27:05  <AveiMil> hehe
23:28:44  *** bryjen [] has joined #openttd
23:29:07  <AveiMil> in the forum
23:29:17  <AveiMil> is [Patch] tag meant to indicate NewGRF?
23:29:18  *** xiong [] has joined #openttd
23:30:17  <Yexo> no
23:30:40  <AveiMil> should I tag my thread with [NewGRF] or nothing?
23:30:45  <Yexo> newgrfs go in the graphics development section, you don't need any tag
23:31:03  <AveiMil> oh right there
23:31:15  <AveiMil> I still associated 'Graphics' with pictures
23:31:24  <AveiMil> bleh
23:31:51  <Yexo> the name might need a bit of an overhaul, but all newgrfs can go there, even if you don't have any graphics
23:33:33  <Eddi|zuHause> might want to set the appropriate value in action14 if you have no graphics ;)
23:39:49  <AveiMil> What's that?
23:41:45  <SmatZ> action14?
23:42:05  <Eddi|zuHause> the place where additional newgrf information like version, palette and parameters are defined
23:42:19  <Eddi|zuHause> don't know how to do that in nml, though
23:42:22  <AveiMil> I don't have that in mine
23:42:36  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, you set palette to "i have no graphics"
23:42:57  <AveiMil> I don't know where to set that
23:42:58  <SmatZ>
23:43:01  <AveiMil> do I have to?
23:43:05  <SmatZ> @seen dalestan
23:43:05  <DorpsGek> SmatZ: dalestan was last seen in #openttd 33 weeks, 4 days, 7 hours, 3 minutes, and 46 seconds ago: <DaleStan> <PeterT> Why would one have info version 5 instead of info version 7? <-- because you didn't use any Info version 6 or 7 features, and there was no header telling NFORenum to use any particular version.
23:43:06  <AveiMil> the NewGRF works
23:43:30  <Eddi|zuHause> you don't have to, but it probably would be very simple to do.
23:43:53  <AveiMil> it says Palette: Windows in the in-game menu

23:43:56  <DorpsGek> Chris_Booth: SmatZ was last seen in #openttd 50 seconds ago: <SmatZ> @seen dalestan
23:43:58  <AveiMil> I'm sure nml took care of that for me

23:45:30  <AveiMil> Is it common courtesy to attach the source code along with my NewGRF?
23:45:33  <AveiMil> when posting in the forum
23:48:24  <Eddi|zuHause> that solely depends on you and your license
23:49:09  <Eddi|zuHause> when you have written every part of your newgrf by yourself, you are free to choose the license. if you used (significant) parts from others, then their license may restrict you
23:49:10  <frosch123> nml creates the action14 palette information on its own
23:49:42  <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: but does it also detect the "no palette" mode?
23:49:47  <frosch123> and the version information is also obligary in recent nml versions
23:49:51  <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: it does for mi2
23:50:13  <Eddi|zuHause> nice
23:50:46  <SmatZ> nml is clever ;)
23:51:14  <frosch123> yup :)

23:52:45  <Eddi|zuHause> i mean copy text, not files.
