10:55:02  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: do you have a fenced-meadows-grf that works with original graphics?
10:57:24  <planetmaker> yes. The company land in ogfx+landscape is that
10:57:44  <Eddi|zuHause> where can i find that grf?
10:58:18  <planetmaker> the same place as you find CETS
10:58:58  <planetmaker>
11:04:38  <planetmaker>
11:08:25  *** perk11 [] has quit [Quit: Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.]
11:10:21  <Eddi|zuHause> hm... that's what i feared. you should not draw fences if near same-company rail tiles...
11:14:47  <planetmaker> I haven't tested that actually..
11:16:00  <Eddi|zuHause> (or station)
11:22:50  <Eddi|zuHause> and as a bonus maybe a tile with a diagonal fence (if at corner of rectangular area)
11:23:51  <planetmaker> why whould the company land then use a diagonal fence?
11:25:22  <Eddi|zuHause> for beautification ;)
11:25:42  <planetmaker> :-)
11:26:42  <planetmaker> I'm not sure that makes sense... it's draw then a 45° rotated rectangle inside a 2x2 area
11:27:03  <planetmaker> and why wouldn't fields have 90° corners?
11:27:58  <planetmaker> it's moderately easy to detect railtiles, though
11:28:00  <Eddi|zuHause> i mean: just give the player a choice
11:28:44  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: and check the owner of the railtile?
11:29:03  <planetmaker> would IMHO not be needed. Fenced is fenced
11:29:19  <planetmaker> though... there are corner cases where it then would not show any fence
11:31:44  *** Vikthor [] has joined #openttd
11:35:59  <Eddi|zuHause> i do think checking owner is necessary
11:37:28  <planetmaker> though it has the not so nice side-effect that they're also not shown when the rail has no fences..
11:38:07  <Eddi|zuHause> but that's exactly what i'm trying to reach ;)
11:39:25  <Eddi|zuHause> the fence should always face away from any company property
11:39:48  <Eddi|zuHause> it makes no sense to show fences in the middle
11:40:01  <planetmaker> oh, it does
11:40:15  <planetmaker> fencing the rail makes still perfect sense towards this company land
11:40:21  <planetmaker> Might be a company-owned playground
11:40:28  <Markk> 1
11:40:31  <Markk> Whoops
11:40:35  <Eddi|zuHause> let me rephrase that: it goes against my aesthetic sense
11:41:00  <planetmaker> as I tried to point out: I don't think it does that always
11:41:08  <Markk> My current network, but DON'T open it in your browser (It might work in Safari, but not in Firefox):
11:41:14  <Markk> Do you guys fancy it?
11:42:17  <Eddi|zuHause> huge file is huge
11:42:33  <Markk> yes.
11:42:38  <Markk> Paint couldn't handle it.
11:42:39  <Eddi|zuHause> (actually, it's rather small for a giant screenshot :p)
11:43:39  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: but "not always" means "provide the option"
11:44:07  <Eddi|zuHause> i have not played with water borders in ages
11:45:19  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: but it need not be an option for the player, but for the newgrf. And they can do that...
11:45:57  <planetmaker> or we'd limit the freedom of newgrf authors
11:46:05  <planetmaker> :-P
11:46:23  <Eddi|zuHause> are we still talking about the same thing?
11:46:37  <planetmaker> fences?

11:58:52  <Eddi|zuHause> let's take an example: you see the two company-owned tiles on the right here?,%205.%20Mai%201988.png <- i'd like to replace those with grassy fields without fences. and the two fences a little further above that are rectangular but not quite touching each other with a diagonal fence.
12:03:07  <peter1138> that's to let the lawnmowers in

13:42:50  <Coke> Are the different types of industries available hardcoded in the sources or is it in some data files loaded when you start the game?
13:43:21  *** Adambean [] has joined #openttd
13:43:29  <Ammler> yes and possible
13:43:39  <Ammler> (called newgrfs)
13:43:50  <Coke> Ok. I'm trying to grep for the steel mill to see an example, but can't find it
13:43:51  *** Noxbru [] has joined #openttd
13:44:11  <Coke> build_industry.h maybe?
13:44:29  <Coke> ah, there we go
13:45:01  <Coke> So, I was thinking about maybe extending buildable objects to include storage facilities for various cargo
13:45:34  <Coke> Like, maybe you have a cargo supply depot in which you can put cargo. It accepts cargo and supplies cargo (if put in there) so you can build relay stations basically
13:45:47  <Coke> I looked at the cargo destination patch, but that's not really what I'm after.
13:46:02  <Coke> (or waiting hall for passengers where there is no city nearby, etc)
13:46:57  <Coke> Is newgrfs widely supported/in use ?
13:47:00  <Eddi|zuHause> stations do that
13:47:28  <Coke> they do?
13:47:36  <Eddi|zuHause> use "transfer and leave emtpy" orders to deliver to the station, and normal load orders to pick up
13:47:48  <Coke> For any cargo?
13:47:55  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, any cargo
13:48:05  <Coke> thats even more generous than i expected
13:48:10  <Coke> hmm. gonna try that out quickly
13:48:34  <Eddi|zuHause> make sure your rating stays above 50% on those stations
13:48:43  <Eddi|zuHause> otherwise you lose the cargo
13:49:15  <Noxbru> really? that explains where my petrol went...
13:50:21  <planetmaker> my explanation then is: they then simply hire different transports...
13:50:50  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: that's fine, but you lose your partial transfer money
13:50:53  <Coke> its not dropping on the station
13:51:14  <Coke> says station accepts nothing and supplies nothing
13:51:17  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, yes, that's the contract penalty
13:51:21  <Noxbru> Coke, make sure that the leave empty part of the order is added
13:51:33  <planetmaker> Coke, "transfer and leave empty"
13:51:41  <planetmaker> the station need not accept or supply anything
13:52:16  <Coke> ah, transfer
13:52:17  <Alberth> Coke: 'transfer' means you are going to transport the cargo further later
13:52:23  <Coke> yes saw it
13:52:55  <Coke> yaaay
13:52:59  <Coke> i learned something new :)
13:53:31  <Coke> thanks a lot for the lesson guys
13:53:59  <Coke> im going to play now, hehe.

17:35:22  <Alberth> what am I doing wrong in decoding this NFO line?
17:38:08  <Hirundo> Were did you find that nfo?
17:38:31  <Alberth> in the mini-airport grf
17:38:49  <Alberth> ie not currently supported :)
17:39:48  <Hirundo> varadjust (60) has bit 5 set, i.e. another variable follows
17:40:01  <Hirundo> 10 is an operator, not num-ranges
17:41:52  <Alberth> ah, /me is looking at the wrong page.
17:41:54  <Alberth> Thanks
17:42:00  <Hirundo> What the entire action2 does is adding 8 to register 00
17:42:26  <Hirundo> and then returning 1
17:42:39  <Alberth> you don't have a act 2 nfo -> nml decoder, do you?
17:43:15  <Hirundo> no, I don't
17:43:28  <KittenKoder> Can fences and depots use 2cc?
17:43:42  <Hirundo> Yexo has one, but AFAIK it's not released anywhere (yet)
17:43:53  * Alberth ponders making one, doing another 40 of these is not fun
17:44:31  <glx> you could steal that from grf2html
17:44:32  <Hirundo> KittenKoder: Not as far as I know, but I'll check for you
17:45:00  <KittenKoder> I don't think fences do, but I want to make sure I didn't just color them wrong.
17:45:20  <Alberth> glx: good idea, perhaps grf2html can handle this already
17:45:37  <glx> it may not like the feature
17:46:01  <Hirundo> KittenKoder: Nope, it's not possible
17:46:42  <KittenKoder> Okay, thanks.
17:47:02  <KittenKoder> In that case the fences are done ... though they aren't really fences. :p
17:47:31  <KittenKoder> Barricades ..... a sci-fi type of barricade
17:48:25  <KittenKoder> After I get all the basic stuff worked out I am going to learn parameter setting code so people can use the standard or no fences.

17:53:13  <KittenKoder> Depots can be "taller" right?
17:53:41  *** Brianetta [] has joined #openttd
17:55:00  <KittenKoder> Or do players prefer the typical size?
17:57:17  *** Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
17:57:27  <Eddi|zuHause> how tall do you want to make it?
17:57:34  <KittenKoder> Just a little taller.
17:58:05  <KittenKoder> I saw one that was almost twice as tall, but I didn't like it for other reasons.
17:58:05  <Eddi|zuHause> one of the tram depots has electric gear on it that makes it taller
17:58:33  <KittenKoder> That was the other one I didn't like. :p But because it didn't fit in the cities well for my eyes.
17:59:08  <Eddi|zuHause> i use some tram tracks that replace also the depot
17:59:35  <Eddi|zuHause> the default tram tracks are too narrow imho
17:59:42  <Eddi|zuHause> and the default tram catenary is ugly
17:59:57  <KittenKoder> Meh.
18:00:05  <KittenKoder> I only use trams to prevent bus squishing.
18:00:18  *** Noxbru [] has joined #openttd
18:00:33  <KittenKoder> The only reason I use passenger road vehicles at all is to appease the local authorities.
18:00:48  <KittenKoder> I prefer trains.
18:00:48  <KittenKoder> :p
18:01:44  <KittenKoder> I love the look of maglev, just ... not the tracks or the default trains.
18:02:03  <KittenKoder> The 2cc set has some nice ones.
18:03:20  <KittenKoder> Wait, I don't think that's where they're from. >.<
18:03:23  <KittenKoder> I can't remember.
18:04:24  <Eddi|zuHause> does 2cc have maglevs at all?
18:04:26  <pjpe> yes
18:04:33  <pjpe> the shanghai maglev and the japanese one
18:05:15  <KittenKoder> Chimera I think is one of them.
18:05:32  <pjpe> that's a separate newgrf with the 2cc name
18:05:41  <KittenKoder> Yeah.
18:06:20  <KittenKoder> I think the maglev speed is insane personally, but would like to see more variety in them.

18:23:05  *** valhalla1w [] has joined #openttd
18:23:25  <Alberth> when I build the program I was running 32 bit, in the meantime switched to 64 bit, so that may introduce extra limitations (though it should not, afaik_

18:31:19  <Eddi|zuHause> yep
18:31:28  <frosch123> though it really "was"
18:31:31  <Eddi|zuHause> it suddenly declined...
18:32:09  <frosch123> oh, and grf2html uses virtual constructors :)
18:36:35  <Alberth> right, no windres at my system and not in the packages as well. That ends this exercise.
18:42:02  <frosch123> yeah, it's not easy to build :p
18:42:10  <frosch123> i guess grf2html would be a ottd patch :)
18:42:29  <frosch123> grf2html 2.0 that is
18:42:37  <frosch123> though i never reached 1.0 :p
18:42:42  <Alberth> better make grf2nml :p
18:42:49  <frosch123> yexo did that
18:43:47  <Alberth> so I heard
18:44:35  <frosch123> well, but what i meant is viewing a grf2html like output inside ottd
18:45:06  <frosch123> including the variable and register values of a particular callback run or so
18:45:09  <Alberth> add a html browser to ottd, and you're done :)
18:45:29  <frosch123> reminds me of the matlab profiler
18:45:46  <frosch123> that also creates a html
18:45:56  <frosch123> actually the matlab profiler is really good
18:46:20  <Alberth> html is a quite useful format for outputting human-readable data
18:46:37  <frosch123> though i have not used it in the past 3.5 years
18:47:05  <Alberth> you don't read or write html email? :p
18:47:27  <Alberth> or browsed the internets?  :D
18:47:29  <frosch123> matlab :)
18:47:49  <frosch123> isn't the internet flash-based?
18:48:07  <Alberth> I mostly tried computations like   sqrt(2)  with matlab
18:48:22  <Alberth> unfortunately, it was not stable enough for that
18:48:51  <frosch123> matlab sounds like the wrong program to compute sqrt(2) :)
18:49:12  <Alberth> a part of the internet believes flash should  be used, but you can just ignore that part :p
18:49:46  <Alberth> I was testing stability of starting matlab ;)
18:50:27  <Alberth> but it's not so good in starting
18:50:41  <Eddi|zuHause> i generally only read text-email
18:50:52  * Alberth does too
18:51:14  <Alberth> with the nice side-effects that sometimes you get empty emails
18:51:43  <Alberth> or email with the word "text" as content :)
18:51:56  * andythenorth should stop watching riots
18:52:10  <Alberth> reading RFCs is complicated :)
18:52:31  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: taking part in riots for a change? :)
18:52:46  <andythenorth> nope
18:52:52  <Alberth> or throw the TV out the window ?
18:52:52  <andythenorth> riots are severely over-rated
18:52:55  <Eddi|zuHause> boooring ;)
18:55:53  <andythenorth> the riots are on my way to work so I had a bit of a look
18:56:21  <andythenorth> one burnt out car, one smashed car, one torched and smouldering bin
18:56:33  <andythenorth> but with good camera angles, you can make it look like the end of days
18:57:12  <Eddi|zuHause> haha :p
18:58:14  <peter1138> i think the burning buildings were a little worse than that
18:59:31  <andythenorth> yarp
18:59:45  <peter1138>
19:00:12  <andythenorth> bargain
19:00:19  * andythenorth just got an iphone
19:00:21  <andythenorth> it sucks
19:02:18  <andythenorth> should we call in the army?
19:02:30  <Alberth> nuke the city
19:02:36  <andythenorth> job done
19:03:52  <andythenorth> anything being coded?
19:04:35  <Alberth> an advanced varaction2 decoder
19:04:46  <Alberth> I don't want to decode them by hand :p
19:05:28  <andythenorth> you can't do it in your head?
19:06:13  <frosch123> Alberth: if you give me the grf, i can also run it through grf2html and give you the output btw
19:06:33  <andythenorth> grf2html is how I learnt lots of varaction 2 stuff
19:07:07  <frosch123> andythenorth: but that was 2 or 3 years ago when grf2html was the sparcling star at the horizon :)
19:08:13  <Alberth>
19:08:49  <Alberth> andythenorth: I have decided looong ago that computers are much better at numbers
19:09:13  <andythenorth> how should NewHQs be implemented?
19:09:27  <andythenorth> akin to new objects, houses, or industries?
19:09:38  <andythenorth> they need acceptance and production
19:09:41  <frosch123> cool, it gives access violation for me as well :)
19:10:00  <Alberth> frosch123: it might just be a bad grf
19:10:26  <frosch123> well it outputs correctly until sprite #98
19:10:35  <frosch123> it says 90%
19:10:51  <Alberth>  the source
19:11:35  <Alberth> andythenorth: acceptance and production excludes newobjects, I think
19:11:53  <Alberth> an HQ looks more like a house to me, tbh
19:12:44  <frosch123> so grf2html actually only fails on the last 10 sprites :)
19:13:00  <andythenorth> Alberth: excludes *current* newobjects :P
19:14:14  <Alberth> frosch123: hmm, you may need the sprites too: the zip file in
19:14:54  <Alberth> andythenorth: I was more wondering how houses are different from industries :p
19:15:07  <andythenorth> player can't fund them
19:15:10  <andythenorth> no production code
19:15:16  <andythenorth> the tiles are...similar
19:15:41  <andythenorth> we need (1) HQ Airports (2) HQ to accept BEER
19:15:48  <andythenorth> neither have a rational reason
19:15:50  <SmatZ> BEER!
19:15:57  <andythenorth> but we should do more stuff because it's cool
19:16:07  <Alberth> you said the magic word :)
19:16:19  *** Noxbru [] has left #openttd []
19:16:28  <SmatZ> :)
19:18:03  <Hirundo> Making HQ accept BEER is possible within current specs
19:18:19  <Alberth> andythenorth: a runway around the building would be cool :)
19:18:21  *** TinoDid|znc [] has joined #openttd
19:18:25  <Hirundo> You just need to put BEER in cargo slot 0
19:19:16  <andythenorth> workable
19:19:23  <Alberth> Hirundo: but the whole company will run at 20% only if you don't supply he HQ
19:20:19  <Alberth> ie a money-making multiplier :)
19:20:54  <Hirundo> I wonder, how much stuff breaks if you change the pax/mail/goods cargos
19:21:10  <SmatZ> not much

20:28:09  <andythenorth> Terkhen:
20:29:03  <Terkhen> heh, I probably ignored that thread :P
20:29:30  <Terkhen> I did not know it was suggested already
20:29:33  <Terkhen> (besides IRC)
20:36:08  <andythenorth> "when FIRS is done"
20:36:12  <andythenorth> we can do rv-wagons :P
20:36:46  * andythenorth is bored of riot reading + will play dice wars
20:40:18  <Terkhen> ask me again when summer ends, right now I barely can code the mechanic conversions that FIRS requires :P
20:40:40  <andythenorth> FIRS will keep us busy long past then ;)
20:40:48  <andythenorth> Terkhen: I can't even *read* nml yet :P
20:41:40  <Terkhen> you can start by checking simple vehicle code in OpenGFX+ Road Vehicles, or some of the meaningful examples on regression
20:41:57  <planetmaker> there's now even an even more meaningful examples folder
20:42:04  <Terkhen> oh, nice, nml moves fast :P
20:42:05  <planetmaker> in the nml repo
20:42:23  <planetmaker> yeah, hirundo is doing excellent and quick work
20:42:30  <Terkhen> indeed :)
20:42:44  <Terkhen> I suppose that once that you have your mind set to nfo is difficult to switch :P
20:43:19  <Terkhen> for me, nml turned a long list of vaguely understood separate parts of knowledge into a single thing
20:43:19  *** Hyronymus [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
20:43:42  <planetmaker> not sure... I wasn't an nfo wizard ever, but I found it easy to forget the meaning of all the numbers :-P
20:43:56  <planetmaker> yeah... that describes it quite well
20:44:45  <Terkhen> once that planetmaker ends with production code and I finish spritelayouts, the conversion should be more than 50% done
20:44:58  <Terkhen> the other "big" thing I can think of is fixing references to strings
20:45:18  <Terkhen> besides that... maybe better reorganization and further templating
20:45:45  <Terkhen> for example, ground spritesets and ground only spritelayouts could be defined only once in a common file
20:46:14  <Terkhen> am I missing anything big besides those three things?
20:46:38  <planetmaker> yes. I guestimate that about 33% of the industry templating is done (not industry tiles)
20:46:42  <planetmaker> maybe more
20:47:00  <planetmaker> but I have no overview of how far tiles are
20:47:08  <planetmaker> I tend to ignore it for now :-)
20:47:13  <Terkhen> all of the industries I have checked have a single industry tile
20:47:19  <Terkhen> they reuse it with different layouts
20:47:30  * planetmaker knows at least one with two
20:47:30  <Terkhen> some of them use different industry tiles that are defined in a single file
20:47:46  <Terkhen> I guess that those industry tiles are common between different industries
20:47:55  <planetmaker> I guess so, too.
20:48:17  <Terkhen> since I'm fixing also industry layouts and relative_pos switches while I fix spritelayouts, industry tiles should be done too, unless some of them have some special code
20:48:26  <planetmaker> when the overall templating is done, I fear the resulting FIRS will need a thorough test
20:48:42  <planetmaker> I'd not bet my life that I don't do an occasional error which compiles but changes gameplay
20:49:34  <Terkhen> <--- the missing industrytile code are just nearby_tile_class switches and var 0x60 switches (which honestly I have no clue of what they do)
20:50:43  <andythenorth> good luck testing that :P
20:50:44  <andythenorth> oh
20:50:48  <andythenorth> I'll have to help :(
20:50:55  <andythenorth> coop games :p
20:51:05  <andythenorth> how about an automated testing server with logging?
20:51:09  <andythenorth> for closures and other crap
20:51:15  <andythenorth> how about teaching AIs to play it?
20:51:31  <Terkhen> first each of us should have a small testing game to filter the "big" mistakes, then a coop game
20:51:45  <Terkhen> stuff like no industry accepting livestock and so on :P
20:51:59  <Terkhen> creating an automated test might be more work than actually testing it :P
20:52:06  <planetmaker> it's part of the slope check for tiles whether it can be built, I guess
20:52:30  <Terkhen> I suppose that once I finish with spritelayouts I can check all "other industrytile code" and beautify it :)
20:52:39  <planetmaker> :-)
20:52:52  <Terkhen> I'm going slow though, I find it complicated to concentrate on anything lately
20:52:54  <planetmaker> I've already version2 of the closure and availability code is use ;-)
20:53:06  <planetmaker> I'll have to check somewhen where v1 is still in use
20:53:16  <Terkhen> :)
20:53:45  <planetmaker> but it gets easy now that I can really in half the cases just replace all code by the templates
20:53:56  <planetmaker> only few things are not yet templated. Like clustering for primary
20:54:21  <planetmaker> oh... apropos, andythenorth: there are random cargo output for sawmill and recycling plant
20:54:36  <planetmaker> from nfo it seems that's intended...
20:54:50  <andythenorth> sawmill no
20:54:53  <andythenorth> recycling plant yes
20:54:56  <planetmaker> but funnily sawmill and recycling plant seemed to have shared that piece of code.
20:55:04  <andythenorth> not intentionally :P
20:55:06  <planetmaker> ok, looked odd to me
20:55:40  <planetmaker> then you can somewhat undo r2272 I think
20:56:53  <andythenorth> have you guys done any cb28 (location) or cb2f (tile location) templating yet?
20:57:22  <planetmaker> location for industries is templated, except primary clustering part
20:57:47  * Terkhen checks cb2f
20:57:47  <planetmaker> and primary clustering is with a bit of luck the only industry template missing
20:58:06  * planetmaker guesses the var 0x60 you talked earlier about ;-)
20:58:33  <Terkhen> I suppose that cb2f is in those nearby_tile_class switches and var 0x60
20:58:46  <Terkhen> I still have not checked that code
20:58:52  <supermop> does nml do stations yet?
20:59:02  <Terkhen> I'll come back to it once that spritelayouts and industry tile layouts are done :)
20:59:04  <Terkhen> supermop: nope
20:59:28  <Terkhen> from what I have heard they are a tough bone :P
20:59:46  * Terkhen looked at the specs of stations and did not understand a word of them
21:01:34  <planetmaker> supermop: nope
21:01:41  * planetmaker is slow
21:01:47  <Terkhen> :)
21:01:48  * planetmaker looked at sawmill code
21:01:54  <supermop> ok
21:02:06  <supermop> i was thinking i should rewrite mlss in nml
21:02:14  <Hirundo> planetmaker: I thought, you were playing your 'fake Terkhen' role of this afternoon again ;)
21:02:16  <supermop> to make it easier for me to maintain and update
21:02:30  <planetmaker> :-P
21:02:38  <planetmaker> didn't I?
21:02:41  <Terkhen> no, now I'm sleepy Terkhen :)
21:02:46  <planetmaker> :-D
21:02:58  <supermop> i should get a proper coder
