08:29:03  <dihedral> morning
08:29:10  <Alberth> moin
08:29:42  <dihedral> can bananas not be placed into some other entities hands, let it be turned into a payed service and the other entity donates that money to openttd :-D
08:29:59  <dihedral> seeing as there are people who want to pay for openttd anyway :-D
08:31:25  <Alberth> a good place to post a reminder in Januari :p

08:35:53  <dihedral> that way you could move the compile farm into the same entities hands :-P
08:37:03  <dihedral> you'd probably find yourself soon in the position of owning 3 ESX servers + an EMC² :-P
08:37:29  <dihedral> or only 1.0.5 being used :-P

08:41:14  * Alberth pours a lot of christmas spirit over dihedral
08:41:39  *** Pulec [] has joined #openttd
08:42:28  <planetmaker> with cinamon and vanilla flavour?
08:43:13  *** pugi [] has joined #openttd
08:44:56  <Alberth> with money grabbing reduction flavour
08:46:00  <planetmaker> the important part is: OpenTTD's license would make that approach obsolete in no time
08:47:48  <dihedral> Alberth, you can get the compiled game for half a donation? :-P
08:48:06  <Alberth> I think that if you ask to optionally donate 1 euro or so for a download, many people would pay it
08:48:40  *** Wilberforce [] has joined #openttd
08:49:00  <Alberth> with bananas you have a bigger problem in the sense that the data there is owned by the authors of the newgrfs
08:49:46  <Alberth> dihedral: for half a donation, you only get the even bytes
08:49:55  <planetmaker> you just call it "service charge" and then all is fine again :-P
08:52:05  <Kurenin> is there speculation around making ottd a paid for thing then?
08:52:18  <Alberth> why did someone not finish the command-line parsing :/
08:52:35  <dihedral> Kurenin, no, not openttd, but the services you access in order to get hold of openttd :-P
08:52:53  <Alberth> Kurenin: no, just a random discussion due to a thread at the forums
08:53:23  <planetmaker> Kurenin: definitely no
08:54:11  <Kurenin> honestly ottd would be the perfect thing to be distributed via peer to peer
08:54:13  <planetmaker> some user were just wondering how much others would pay for OpenTTD
08:54:48  <dihedral> itself should not have more money than it needs to pay for the hosting etc.
08:55:09  <dihedral> i do not think it would be a good think if it owned a stack of cash
08:55:14  <Alberth> Kurenin: we are not stopping you from offering openttd at some torrent thing
08:55:16  <dihedral> cached cash :-P
08:55:45  *** a1270 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:55:54  <planetmaker> one could take just the official binaries and distribute them there
08:56:04  <planetmaker> If so, it'd be better than distributing self-built ones
08:56:19  <dihedral> Alberth, but we would decline support if the source of the OpenTTD binary was a torrent :-P
08:57:14  <Kurenin> why is that?
08:57:27  <planetmaker> we wouldn't know what version the torrent is
08:57:31  <Alberth> dihedral: we do keep an eye on not having too much money in stock
08:57:37  <planetmaker> We can only support what we release
08:57:52  <dihedral> Alberth, i know :-)
08:57:58  <dihedral> it would be silly if you did not
08:58:04  <dihedral> big brother is watching you :-P
08:58:31  *** a1270 [] has joined #openttd
08:58:56  <Alberth> oh that's what the big helicopter is for, that flies over my house every now and then :p
08:59:12  <planetmaker> :-D
08:59:13  <dihedral> i really dislike the agency :-D
08:59:54  <dihedral> they emphasized that i should keep a secure distance to openttd :-)
08:59:56  <dihedral> i am :-D
09:00:04  <dihedral> s/secure/safe/
09:00:34  <Alberth> too late, you played it already, so you are already infected
09:00:46  <dihedral> i wrote patches since too
09:01:20  <Kurenin> tbh
09:01:34  <Kurenin> I bought tt a week after it was released
09:01:37  <dihedral> i would not mind trying to get an interview with CS :-P
09:01:41  <Kurenin> and have played it on and off since
09:01:49  <Kurenin> i really don't know what the attraction is
09:01:53  <Kurenin> honestly it makes no sense
09:01:55  <Kurenin> i just play it
09:02:28  <dihedral> are you talking of tt, ttd, <place any game you can think of here>
09:02:29  <Alberth> dihedral: do you think CS has anything interesting to say?
09:02:33  <dihedral> yes
09:02:37  <Kurenin> all of them dihedral
09:02:46  <Kurenin> I don't think he does tbh
09:02:59  <dihedral> you do not have to talk to him ;-)
09:03:09  <planetmaker> well. OpenTTD doesn't hire in that sense. But it accepts good patches which improve gameplay experience :-)
09:03:13  <dihedral> i would really be interested how he feels about these projects
09:03:24  <planetmaker> which in a continued form may lead to a "hire" ;-)
09:03:32  <Alberth> Kurenin: the goal of all games is just to play them, and have a good time. That's all.
09:03:40  <dihedral> 'gameplay experience' .... does that include administration :-D
09:03:51  <planetmaker> yes
09:03:57  <dihedral> good ^^
09:04:10  <dihedral> then i feel happily addressed :-P
09:04:16  <planetmaker> running a MP server is definitely part of the game play :-)
09:04:27  <dihedral> kicking players is too :-D
09:04:30  <Kurenin> I sent Chris Sawyer a letter when I was 10 ;|
09:04:34  <Kurenin> he never replied
09:04:38  <dihedral> just depends on the definition of 'game'
09:04:39  <Alberth> :(
09:04:50  <planetmaker> hm?
09:04:57  <planetmaker> oh
09:04:57  <dihedral> Kurenin, the letter most likely reached CS
09:05:23  <dihedral> s/y r/y never r/
09:05:44  <dihedral> i would assume the agency to have a bit of influence on that
09:05:55  <Kurenin> I do wonder what happened to him though
09:06:01  <dihedral> which is why i would not mind having a chat with CS
09:06:09  <Kurenin> I know he was involved in some legal battles related to the rollercoaster tycoon franchise
09:06:12  <Alberth> oh, he wrote RCT, RCT2, and Locomotion
09:06:17  <Kurenin> but that was almost a decade ago
09:06:36  <dihedral> he was involved in RCT3 too
09:06:41  <Kurenin> I don't know why but Locomotion, in my opinion, was inferior to TTD
09:06:58  <dihedral> and the legal battle was between atari and marjaqu (or however it is written) in the end
09:07:03  <dihedral> and ended a few years ago
09:07:07  <Alberth> in game play yes, in looks definitely no
09:08:58  <Alberth> Kurenin: and for an honest comparison, you should compere original TTD and Locomotion, rather than with OpenTTD. In that case, I am not so sure Locomotion is worse in game play (mostly because I never played Locomotion)
09:10:53  <planetmaker> hehe, indeed. Years refining the UI helped usability and gameplay quite a bit when playing OpenTTD compared to TTD; I never seem to be able to do what I want in a nice way when testing TTD
09:10:57  <Kurenin> while we're on the subject
09:11:05  <Kurenin>
09:11:19  <Kurenin> this, vs the original ttd o:
09:11:26  <Kurenin> I could never get into railroad tycoon
09:12:47  *** SystemParadox [] has joined #openttd
09:14:17  <dihedral> planetmaker, how many frames does that camera shot in a second again?
09:14:30  <planetmaker> mine? 5
09:14:48  <dihedral> nono - that big fat whapping thing at work
09:15:14  <planetmaker> Oh. 1 Megapixel at 1 kiloHertz. And proportionally scaled faster when reducing the image size
09:15:25  <planetmaker> up to about 60k fps
09:15:45  <planetmaker> our Japanese friends have a camera with a million fps ;-)
09:16:03  <Alberth> Kurenin: I never played RT, although I do have the CD somewhere. I did play RT2 though, which was nice (but just like OpenTTD, I never played for more than some hours)
09:16:32  <Alberth> planetmaker: good for studying falling of snow flakes :)
09:16:45  <planetmaker> Alberth: indeed. No joke :-)
09:16:50  <planetmaker> and collisions of them
09:18:29  <Kurenin> mm
09:18:47  <Kurenin> do any of you find it odd
09:18:57  <Kurenin> that very often you'll have a station larger than a city, in ottd
09:19:03  <planetmaker> I find that two is the only true odd prime
09:19:35  <planetmaker> Kurenin: that's only odd when you expect realism.
09:19:48  <planetmaker> But this is a game and scale is arbitrary on many accounts. So: no
09:19:49  <Kurenin> well
09:19:56  <Alberth> Kurenin: no, OpenTTD is not a scaled version of the real world, it just looks that way
09:20:01  <Kurenin> it just occured to me that my station, which by all accounts isn't THAT big
09:20:05  <Kurenin> (12x10)
09:20:11  <Kurenin> it's larger than the town it services
09:20:22  <Kurenin> and the network of track leading to it takes up more space than the town ¬_¬
09:20:44  * Alberth ponders to add a restriction to OpenTTD to forbid large stations near small towns
09:21:12  <Kurenin> that'd be nonsensical unless you were to scale down station and track size/scale up town size
09:21:13  <planetmaker> meh
09:21:20  <Alberth> Kurenin: scale is totally messed up, such that it plays nice
09:21:27  <planetmaker> Alberth: I don't think
09:21:46  <planetmaker> You'd get in conflict with the large mining station which incidentially is near the village
09:22:15  <Alberth>
09:22:35  <Alberth> planetmaker: that's called a 'challenge' :p
09:22:47  <planetmaker> something like "noise level" doesn't make IMHO much sense for other means of transport. He...
09:23:39  <Alberth> Kurenin: that link was for you
09:23:52  <Kurenin> I guessed
09:24:10  <Kurenin> I had a great town recently
09:24:17  <Kurenin> it had 4 other towns around it
09:24:17  <dihedral> planetmaker> Alberth: I don't think <- hehe - i assumed you had no brains :-D
09:24:48  <Kurenin> a large rail network, 4 airports, an intercity "underground" style rail network and I had made the terrain to look like manhattan, it was pretty brilliant o:
09:24:57  <planetmaker> It's positronic circuitry. Straight from asimov's roboter stories ;-)
09:25:21  <dihedral> there is no such thing as "underground" in openttd
09:25:29  <Kurenin> there is!
09:25:36  <Kurenin> well
09:25:37  <dihedral> there are tunnels, there are bridges and there is standard rail
09:25:38  <Alberth> Kurenin: nice, I never have the patience for such things
09:25:43  <Kurenin> there isn't, but there is ,_,
09:26:08  <dihedral> by the way - can trame ways be made 'town ownable'?
09:26:22  <planetmaker> Kurenin: you should try NuTrack's "underground" rail type (you can download that railtype newgrf from online content)
09:26:42  <Kurenin> :o
09:26:50  <Alberth> dihedral: then you wouldn't be able to use them?
09:27:24  <Alberth> ie you get IS-like problems
09:28:47  <Alberth> Hmm, makes me wonder, perhaps we could fine companies that block roads with 'traffic obstruction tickets'
09:29:08  <planetmaker> how do you define 'block road'?
09:29:25  <planetmaker> I can just stop two vehicles on the two directions
09:29:30  *** Progman [] has joined #openttd
09:29:44  <Alberth> a vehicle is stopped for extended time, not at a road stop
09:29:56  <Alberth> and you are not loading actively
09:30:03  <Kurenin> are you talking about nefarious tactics in online?
09:30:09  <Alberth> (ie no cargo is being transfered)
09:31:01  <dihedral> <Alberth> dihedral: then you wouldn't be able to use them? <- you can use roads can you not?
09:31:03  <Alberth> I was more thinking about nasty AIs that throw in a few hundred road vehicles that cause big traffic jams, but in MP games it may be nice too
09:31:08  <dihedral> no matter who they are from
09:31:54  <Alberth> dihedral: hmm good point.
09:32:05  <Kurenin> hmm, never played with AI
09:32:09  <Kurenin> well not since 1995 or so o:
09:32:10  <dihedral> seeing as trams are RV's i thought that could make sense
09:32:23  <Kurenin> and my tactic right now was to actually just destroy their road vehicles with a train
09:32:25  <dihedral> and would be a first step towards an IS system
09:32:35  <dihedral> at least in the sense that it would work for trams sharing tracks
09:32:52  <Alberth> I wonder what the main problem in IS is, then
09:33:00  <dihedral> possibly let the town build tram ways once it reaches a certain size
09:33:33  <dihedral> that one can change the tracks others are using and hinter them from getting anywhere - even to a depot
09:33:38  <Alberth> I would expect so, why else would you have town-owned tram tracks?
09:34:13  <Alberth> perhaps a subsidized 'provide transport in the town' would be nice
09:37:45  <dihedral> and possibly teach it to build tram tracks in a certain way
09:38:08  <dihedral> so that not every road piece in the center has been 'tramsmogified' :-P
09:38:43  <planetmaker> [10:32]	<Alberth>	I wonder what the main problem in IS is, then <-- it's like many ways to exploit another company. But actually only, a) if they share and b) if one player is not around
09:38:54  <planetmaker> It's pretty save if you don't share - nothing changes there
09:39:19  <dihedral> is there a free bit in the map array regarding rails / stations ?
09:39:59  <Alberth> haha :)
09:40:01  <dihedral> forbidding change to rails with that bit
09:40:24  <dihedral> but you would probably need more
09:40:26  <Alberth> ask santa claus (or look in the current bit allocations)
09:40:45  <dihedral> newMap? :-P
09:41:13  <Alberth> why are changes always called 'newX' ?
09:41:27  <dihedral> mapman :-P
09:41:35  <Hirundo> because TTDP has lots of newX?
09:41:41  <dihedral> oh really :-S
09:41:43  <dihedral> hmmm
09:42:20  <peter1138> finitemap
09:42:49  <dihedral> mapfinite
09:43:04  <Alberth> we could exchange bits in the map for bits in mapsizes :p
09:43:06  <dihedral> MAPple :-P
09:43:27  <dihedral> perhaps a new map array would not be a bad project for 1.2
09:43:44  <dihedral> just the design would be quite a crucial point of discussion
09:43:51  <Hirundo> 'new map array' would do what?
09:44:00  <dihedral> might require Rubidium to be unemployed a bit longer :-P
09:44:28  <dihedral> a new map array that did not impose such limitations?
09:44:51  <dihedral> i.e. a possibility to always extend meta data for certain objects
09:45:07  <Alberth> dihedral: You are day-dreaming, WAKE UP!
09:45:48  * dihedral need array map data object meta new make team Mr. T
09:46:17  <dihedral> Alberth, what is wrong with the general idea?
09:46:49  <Hirundo> Removing the concept of wormholes, thus introducing off-map tiles seems the most useful to me
09:47:17  <planetmaker> iirc michi_cc has a repo with such implementation (stacked tiles)
09:47:33  <Alberth> nah, having more than one layer of tiles would be nice
09:47:56  <planetmaker> bridges with signals?
09:48:14  <Alberth> should work
09:48:25  <planetmaker> it doesn't mean necessarily to be visually stacked. Just... for things like bridges
09:48:43  <dihedral> so if you make 2 layers you can make more
09:48:47  <planetmaker> oh... I read a 'not' in your statement, Alberth  ;-)
09:49:06  <planetmaker> I read, nah = no
09:49:38  <Alberth> planetmaker: I was generalizing the suggestion by Hirundo
09:49:42  <dihedral> hehe - each hightlevel introduces a new layer :-P
09:49:52  <dihedral> the hillier a map, the bigger the save game :-D
09:49:57  <Alberth> not necessarily
09:50:26  <Alberth> you could also have a single surface layer, and additional tiles for every track
09:50:40  <planetmaker> yeah, realized now :-)
09:50:51  <Alberth> ie no tracks => no additional tiles
09:51:00  <planetmaker> that's afaik what michi did
09:51:06  * peter1138 pats his 120MB minecraft world
09:51:12  <dihedral> lol
09:51:19  * dihedral pats peter1138
09:51:27  <peter1138> (and that's compressed)
09:51:35  <dihedral> yikes
09:51:44  <dihedral> welcome multiplayer game :-P
09:52:03  <dihedral> "i should be connected in an hour or so"
09:52:56  <peter1138> hmm current world is 30MB
09:53:03  <dihedral> is downloading a map via http faster than downloading it with the ingame protocol?
09:53:07  <peter1138> although the total area is 2544x1440
09:53:33  <dihedral> peter1138, 2544x1440 what
09:53:43  <peter1138> blocks
09:53:47  <peter1138> tiles, i suppose
09:54:03  <peter1138> they don't all exist though
09:54:10  <dihedral> ah
09:54:25  <peter1138> x128 high (of course)
09:54:47  <dihedral> and more than 16 colours ^^
09:54:56  <peter1138> 16 colours?
09:56:45  <peter1138> hmm, pretty reasonable compression, a chunk is ~80KB, compresses down to 2-3KB
09:57:04  <peter1138> mind you there are a lot of 00s and 01s
09:57:45  <dihedral> i meant the game in general has more than 16 colours
09:58:03  <peter1138> uh, yeah
09:58:16  <peter1138> i think that's probably a given since the early 90s
10:02:14  <dihedral> mut not always more than 256 ^^
10:02:30  <dihedral> uh 16bit was also quite popular ^^
10:04:30  <peter1138> ?
10:07:58  <dihedral> i remember a game that would check if you had a colour depth on your desktop of 16 bit, and it would not start otherwise
10:08:04  <dihedral> would only exit with an error message
10:08:36  <dihedral> and you could not force it to start even if you had 32bit (or at that time even 24 bit) set :-P
10:08:57  <Alberth> stupid game, cannot be worth playing
10:10:29  <dihedral> motoracer :-)
10:10:56  <dihedral>
10:11:06  <dihedral> came with the matrox graphics card :-D
10:13:05  <peter1138> heh
10:13:21  <peter1138> that was fairly common
10:13:59  <peter1138> there were even some games that wouldn't run under X11 unless it was a certain bitdepth (usually 8bpp)
10:14:40  <peter1138> DGA was fairly awful, but damn, I could run openttd fast :D

11:05:39  <blathijs> peter1138: I'm having the same: When heavy IO is happening (say, swapping), my system tends to become quite unresponsive (even to mouse movements sometimes...)
11:08:45  <peter1138> yup
11:10:10  <Alberth> yep, code that handles mouse moving may also get swapped out :)
11:10:11  <peter1138> i created a 40GB file and the machine pretty much looked up
11:10:41  <peter1138> i did find a bug report about it, but can't find it now
11:11:15  <Alberth> I once killed a machine by running 5 compile processes at the same time
11:13:49  <peter1138> in the report someone surmised that it was sata taking up way more cpu than ide ever did
11:14:08  <peter1138> (but then it wouldn't be iowait, would it...)
11:18:25  * blathijs is still on IDE, so I can expect bigger problems when I upgrade to SATA? ;-p
11:21:23  <Eddi|zuHause> some io stuff was fixed in recent kernels, but i don't remember the specifics
11:23:15  <blathijs> I'm already on 2.6.36, so that's pretty recent as well
11:23:23  <blathijs> I should just get a new laptop, I guess

11:24:21  <blathijs> (I can sqeeze in 512MB extra RAM, but that downgrades from DDR400 to DDR266 IIRC..)
11:25:13  <Alberth> it is faster than swap, but that's about all :)

14:28:54  <dihedral> yeah - but on the 13th July it was a different job
14:29:11  <dihedral> i.e. first half of the year i quit because the boss sucked
14:29:22  <Eddi|zuHause> i think we got the gist of it ;)
14:29:25  <dihedral> second half of the year the job and the resource management of the boss sucked

14:30:18  <dihedral> not going to have a boss shout at me repeatedly for not being at work at 10AM if my contract clearly states that i have flexi time
14:30:44  <dihedral> and i was one of 5 who quit (that month)
14:31:22  <dihedral> all developers (apart from one) quit within one month from eachother :-D

14:43:30  *** LordAro [] has joined #openttd
14:44:11  <planetmaker> if you say so...
14:45:06  <Eddi|zuHause> you know, a "heap" is a special tree where each branch fulfills the same relational test [i.e. each child is "smaller" than its parent]
14:45:16  <SmatZ> well
14:45:27  <SmatZ> the joke is in multiple meanings of words "tree" and "heap"
14:46:03  <SmatZ> I don't like such jokes :p
14:46:26  <Eddi|zuHause> [you then can apply further requirements, like being balanced]
14:48:14  <SmatZ> sometimes when reading xkcd, I say myself "that crazy guy is like me!"

14:48:25  <SmatZ> I would be too crazy
14:48:30  <planetmaker> good. And how does that now relate to the fact that I liked the less-coloured versions of the spheres better and how does that show in your eyes a lack of understanding?
14:48:58  <Eddi|zuHause> only the alt text is kinda weird... reapplying the heap condition on removing the root element is not that time consuming. you only need to sort the direct children and declare the largest one the new root
14:49:26  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: ah, then i misread your line
14:49:30  <SmatZ> oh there is alt text :)
14:49:36  <planetmaker> SmatZ, always!
14:49:58  <SmatZ> AAAAAAAAAAAA
14:50:09  <SmatZ> maybe I would like xkcd more if I knew that

14:50:22  <planetmaker> :-D
14:50:31  <planetmaker> Some are definitely NOT funny without the alt text
14:50:55  <SmatZ> yeah :)
14:51:03  <SmatZ> I thought I am just not geeky enough :P
14:52:14  <planetmaker> well. Some stay boring also with the alt text.

14:59:17  <planetmaker> so yes
14:59:52  <SmatZ> maybe it has something to do with multiple meanings of some words I don't know :p

15:01:13  <planetmaker> :-)
15:01:27  <planetmaker> not too much funnyness there, indeed.
15:07:56  <planetmaker> <-- anyone feeling like telling (a bit off-topic there), how many of those newgrfs are pointless?
15:08:32  <planetmaker> it's probably the 2nd worst selection / combination of newgrfs I've ever seen
15:09:25  <LordAro> 2nd worst?
15:10:56  <planetmaker> The first two are obsolete, "OpenGFX - *" must go; OpenGFX+ Trees is overwritten by New Trees. Not sure about any other interferences for vehicles. Might be or not
15:11:05  <planetmaker> Worst was a guy who activated ALL NewGRFs.
15:11:43  <Eddi|zuHause> i thought it was limited to something like 60 ;)
15:11:52  <LordAro> ah. Don't suppose you could find a link? ;)
15:12:31  <planetmaker> yes, 63 or 64 is the limit. I think it was a complaint that he couldn't activate all or some train sets interfered with eachother and base costs were messed up (was without engine pool)
15:13:30  <planetmaker> and no, I've no idea where it was

15:36:24  <DanMacK> Question, is .nml compatible w/TTDP or is it an Open only thing?
15:36:42  * DanMacK already had a real winter...
15:36:42  <planetmaker> it's as compatible to TTDP as grfcodec
15:36:46  <Eddi|zuHause> nml is just another way to write .grfs
15:36:47  <DanMacK> Cool
15:37:00  <Eddi|zuHause> the compatibility is the same
15:37:26  <planetmaker> depends entirely on how you write your newgrf :-)
15:45:00  <DanMacK> Thanks :)
15:45:36  <Yexo> it depends on what features yo uuse, nml supports plural forms / cases in strings, while ttdpatch does not. If you use this in your language files than resulting grf file will be openttd-only
15:46:02  <Yexo> there might be some other features that will break support with ttdpatch, although in general it should work
15:48:46  <DanMacK> Cool.  I don't expect to be coding a grf anytime soon, but you never know... lol
15:49:17  <dihedral> lol? xplane has no 64bit version?
15:49:41  <planetmaker> DanMacK, well, there's a number of NML example newgrfs already out there. And afaik they all work for TTDP, too.
15:50:10  <planetmaker> though... I can't test myself. The vehicle ones. They might fail on account of vehicleIDs.
15:50:53  <DanMacK> True...
15:51:33  <planetmaker> not sure whether they do. It would need someone testing ;-)
15:51:53  <planetmaker> at least SwedishRails I know for sure works

15:57:09  <planetmaker> converting between rail and erail works nicely also under the trains.
15:57:31  <planetmaker> Maybe you should check out that feature thoroughly before you update the wiki on it with somewhat half-baked knowledge, LordAro

15:58:49  <LordAro> i am well aware of how to use it, thank you :p it was just a quick edit to get rid of the glaringly obvious changes you (and others) mentioned a few minutes ago
15:59:27  <planetmaker> you obviously missed that SmatZ was entirely joking about his compilation comment.
15:59:35  <planetmaker> even though it works

17:07:06  <Alberth> *how
17:07:40  <Alberth> and Building Signals is not much better

17:17:33  <planetmaker> the description of signal blocks on this kololoris page (or however it was spellt) is unrivaled though
17:18:00  <LordAro> true :)
17:18:18  <Alberth> so where is explained what a signal does, and how to use it to have several trains at the same tracks?

19:05:06  <DanMacK> that works too
19:05:21  <IchGuckLive> but costs most

19:05:57  <IchGuckLive> can i if i got permission cut some trees down then  or is this also refused then
19:06:10  <IchGuckLive> Lord im on this
19:07:29  <IchGuckLive> what is this sign for in the tarrain menue
19:09:13  <DanMacK> you can cut trees down, but get your rating up first
19:09:32  <DanMacK> plant lots, build your station then go from there
19:09:52  <IchGuckLive> i buyed some tarrain as well to build somthing

20:21:39  <Susi> it works
20:21:52  <Alberth> it should come with a readme file, that explains where to put things:
20:23:19  <Alberth> I don't know where the program dumps its config file by default. Do you have a ~/.openttd directory  (note the ".")
20:23:29  <Susi>

20:30:39  <Ammler> think*
20:31:29  <Susi> hmpf i'ved unzipped dbsetxl.grf to /.openttd and restarted the game
20:31:47  <Susi> but there aren't any extensions listed

20:32:56  <DanMacK> It's been "Out soon" for a couple of years now :P
20:33:02  <andythenorth> thereby probably confusing most people

20:34:35  <andythenorth> doesn't
20:36:41  <Alberth> Susi: after moving the grfs into the data directory, start opentdd, and click the 'newgrf settings' button. you should get a window with the newgrfs listed there. Activate them, and then start a game.
20:37:01  <Susi> it works
20:37:11  <Susi> love you guys :)
20:37:21  <Alberth>
20:37:40  <Alberth> have fun with your new grf :)
20:37:45  <Susi> thx
20:38:04  <Alberth> oh, the firs version also needs FIRS I guess
20:38:17  <Alberth> do you have that installed too?
20:38:41  <Susi> i have installed dbsetxl and dbset firs extension
20:39:36  <Alberth> I would think that the "dbset firs extension" exists for the purpose of playing with FIRS, the industry set.
20:39:47  <Alberth> You can download that from bananas.
20:40:28  <Susi> I thought dbset firs extension is the FIRS versions that works togehter with db set?!
20:41:15  <Alberth> thinking the other way around is fine too :)
20:41:33  <Alberth> but you probably want to load FIRS as well

21:31:29  <andythenorth> I just redrew the big sprite :(
21:32:34  <Eddi|zuHause> sometimes it's just necessary to break savegame compatibility. 95% of the people who need it for a savegame can get the old grf from bananas
21:33:12  <DanMacK> Possibly shorten the big one slightly?
21:33:26  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: there's a bugreport-ish in the german forum that FIRS makes two stations called "A-Town Factory"
21:33:44  <andythenorth> it does do that
21:33:57  <andythenorth> DanMacK: shortening is more work than redrawing the medium one :)
21:34:01  <andythenorth> maybe I keep the big one
21:34:03  <DanMacK> heh
21:34:11  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: I have no idea how that could be fixed
21:34:26  <DanMacK> Keep it for now, I'm sure those of us that use it can accept the odd graphical glitch :P

22:23:45  <Eddi|zuHause> DanMacK: i think 12/8 is the most you can go without falling into the most critical glitches
22:26:57  <DanMacK> Yeah...  I think that 10/8 is a nice length :)
22:34:06  <Eddi|zuHause> nowadays i quickly get annoyed by the passenger wagons being so extremely short
22:34:36  <Eddi|zuHause> i desperately want 16/8 wagons, but i haven't found a "right" way to do it yet.
22:36:19  <Eddi|zuHause> you need to make them from several pieces for anything causing graphical glitches (tunnels, bridges, foundations), you need to make them from one piece in curves, and you need a 22.5° angle, otherwise they stick way out in curves.
22:36:45  <Eddi|zuHause> and it gets really problematic when you have curves on foundations...
22:37:17  <Eddi|zuHause> it's kinda worst case of FS119-ish
22:37:31  <frosch123> hmm, it would have been more fun, if susi used suse :p

22:41:18  <Lakie> Heh
22:44:05  <DanMacK> Eddi, why would you want something that long?
22:44:58  <Eddi|zuHause> DanMacK: if you wanted to balance a vehicle's length to its width, it should be even longer
22:45:39  <DanMacK> true...
22:46:01  <DanMacK> If you look at the Czech set though, the longer cars look good
22:46:07  <DanMacK> and they look "right"
22:46:13  <Eddi|zuHause> DanMacK: but basically, i want 2 freight cars ~ 1 passenger car
22:47:00  <DanMacK> Yeah...  that'd make sense
22:47:59  <Eddi|zuHause> the plan is: 9m = 6/8, 12m = 8/8, 18m = 12/8, 24m = 16/8
22:48:23  <Eddi|zuHause> those are (roughly) the length of the most wagons i could find
22:48:25  <dihedral> good night
22:48:37  <DanMacK> a 40' boxcar in NARS works out to 23px, so theoretically an 80' coach would be 47
22:49:03  <Eddi|zuHause> i have no clue how much 80 foot is :p
22:50:58  <frosch123> @calc 80 * 12 * 2.54 / 100
22:50:58  <DorpsGek> frosch123: 24.384
22:51:01  <DanMacK> 24m :P
22:52:22  <frosch123> hmm, is actually 1' = 12" ? or is it some arbitrary broken value?
22:52:25  <Eddi|zuHause> i think current passenger cars are like 26m, but that's enough of an approximation...
22:52:41  <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: yes, 1' = 12"
22:59:52  <DanMacK> wow...  alot of differences
23:00:26  <DanMacK> US GP40-2 is 8/8 while an SD70 is 10/8...
23:01:09  <DanMacK> Problem is, long veh's almost need to be done as articulated
23:01:58  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, additional 1/8 in front, and 1/8 in back
23:02:50  <DanMacK> or 3/8, 6/8, 3/8
23:03:30  <frosch123> night
23:03:33  *** frosch123 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:04:05  <Eddi|zuHause> DanMacK: problem is, if you make the first vehicle invisible, the mouse cursor will get invisible while dragging in depot. so there needs to be additional checks for that
23:05:40  <DanMacK> Yeah, that's how the NARS does the DD40X
23:06:29  <Eddi|zuHause> basically, in depot, the first vehicle part may not be invisible
23:09:36  * DanMacK will have to consult pikka about the coding for that particular loco
23:10:07  <DanMacK> I'm doing a semi-small set based on the Alaska Railroad, and I'd like to use scale length equipment :)
