01:02:27  <Zuu> Note to self: test library code before uploading to banans :-)
01:03:55  *** KritiK [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:04:12  <Zuu> Ironically, I have added more sub libraries to the NoGo edition of SuperLib which hasn't had very much testing in NoGo context. Though by doing so it will make it easier for me and others to test and see what works and what doesn't. :-)
01:04:18  <xiong> Well. I'm quite certain the center tile of a 3x3 block is reluctant to build. I've definitely observed backsliding, too; where after the center builds and I remove the access road, later the center becomes grass again. This happens even in the central 16 blocks of a town now at pop. > 80,000. This just doesn't seem right. I've seen a house build as far as 3 tiles from any road.

03:03:09  <Stimrol_> Sad that this do not work :(
03:03:33  * appe breaks the somewhat autism-induced discussions with a great gift of poop to everyone.
03:04:47  <appe> right there, on the floor
03:04:51  <appe> its my gift to you
03:04:55  <appe> now build train tracks around it.
03:06:45  <Rhamphoryncus> Build pointless tracks around it?  What do you think this is, minecraft?
03:07:34  <appe> pointless?
03:07:51  <appe> my stool deserves nothing more then being turned into efficient energy
03:08:03  <appe> wich would require proper logistics
03:08:30  <Rhamphoryncus> That sounds like a different industry set
03:08:36  <appe> its a new grf.
03:08:59  <Rhamphoryncus> Featuring: the product of appe's asshole.
03:10:06  <appe> since my gastronomical features is somewhat swedish, id guess we have to set the proper logistics to mineral wagons.
03:10:33  <appe> in goes beer and coal, and out goes liberalism and swag.
03:10:48  <appe> preferably exported to citys.
03:11:24  <appe> bah, nuff' with the lame jokes.
03:11:27  <appe> i need to get to bed.
03:11:31  <appe> have a good one
03:12:03  <Rhamphoryncus> yeah, I was bailing on that conversation.  Cya

03:29:34  <Stimrol_> This was strange, all production of I think all mines for all users went down 50% for one or two years
03:29:40  <Stimrol_> and then slowly up

03:35:07  <Rhamphoryncus> Stimrol: economic downturn
03:35:29  <Stimrol> what is that
03:36:33  <Stimrol> is that part of the programming that this happens or is this some bug?
03:37:46  <xiong> Stimrol, economic recession. Feature.
03:38:06  <xiong> All production cut in half.
03:39:00  *** Pulec [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:39:03  <xiong>
03:39:08  <Stimrol> okey, random thing I like that, but I cant find anything about in settings
03:39:43  <xiong> Not an Advanced Setting. A Difficulty setting.
03:40:03  <Stimrol> ahh nice, I like this
03:40:28  <Stimrol> Did not find it on google because I didn't know the word for it
03:40:29  <xiong> Join the club. I've occasionally thrashed around for half an hour looking for an Advanced Setting before I remembered to check Difficulty instead.
03:40:34  *** Pulec [] has joined #openttd
03:41:16  <xiong> I've demonstrated that the rate of backsliding is higher than the rate of fill-in. I say 3x3 is broken.
03:41:22  <Stimrol> thank you, happy I found this irc channel, good if you have some wondering
03:41:59  <xiong> Do I file a but against the game itself or against the town set? Does town set affect building at all? Should I run a test game with no NewGRFs?
03:42:59  <Rhamphoryncus> Stimrol: it does actually tell you when a recession starts, but I've missed it too
03:43:17  <Stimrol> ohh it does
03:43:23  <Stimrol> missed it :)
03:44:03  <Stimrol> xiong what is this, are you asking me because of my question?
03:47:25  <xiong> Stimrol, my question is totally unrelated to your question, sorry.
03:47:44  <Stimrol> np
03:48:03  <xiong> For a couple of weeks now, I've been trying to understand why the center tile of a so-called 3x3 grid block rarely builds. I'm now convinced it's just not right.
03:48:43  *** glx [glx@2a01:e35:2f59:c7c0:8023:c6c8:b61d:b73] has quit [Quit: bye]
03:48:54  <xiong> I've upgraded, tested, tried temporary access roads. Nothing works -- that is, no strategy overcomes the rate of backsliding, where a formerly built center tile returns to grass.
03:49:45  <Stimrol> a same here 3x4 two middle is missing, i have some newgrfs
03:52:31  <Stimrol> I think Nars change my houses, think that is the only grf that affected my houses
04:00:40  <xiong> 3x4 definitely is not worth anything; you pay every possible price.
04:00:50  *** Pulec [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:02:06  *** Pulec [] has joined #openttd
04:03:43  <xiong> 3x4 block is really 4x5 grid; that's 8 road tiles for 12 buildable tiles, except two won't build; so you end up with 10 tiles built, for an efficiency of 50%. That's exactly what you get with 3x3, with the center unbuilt. Also you have the inconvenience of a different repetition X and Y.
04:05:00  *** bryjen [~bryjen@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
04:05:55  <xiong> I've seen a few cities laid out with very long 2xN sections. This approaches 67% efficiency.
04:06:42  *** roboboy [] has joined #openttd
04:07:15  <xiong> Of course, then you have the question of how your road vehicles get around. I like roads every 4 tiles; it's easy to lay out, it's sane, sensible, looks reasonable. If only it worked....
04:09:16  <Stimrol> but it doesn't and gives you blank middle :(

06:26:27  <Rhamphoryncus> that's.. not.. good.  Testing out my timetable patch with a pax game and a couple years in what do I do?  Give all my trains a conditional order jump to control maintenance.
06:27:26  *** Pulec [] has joined #openttd
06:29:03  <Rhamphoryncus> Maybe a way to control what orders are timetabled.. or a way to have sub-routes.

09:04:49  <Rubidium> Pulec: you setting longer timeouts won't help; you're disconnected from the IRC server's side
09:06:07  <Pulec> it didnt disconnected me before
09:06:29  <Pulec> I had set timeout for about 6 minutes
09:10:23  <Rubidium> well, you're very regularly "ping timeout"-ing
09:10:46  <Rubidium> and generally if a connection isn't back after a minute, it's lost
09:13:34  <andythenorth> how droll
09:13:51  <andythenorth> I'm passing an object to a function defined on a child object of the object
09:14:10  <andythenorth> so effectively I'm passing the object back into itself in some insane recursive fashion :P

13:00:15  <andythenorth> probably best I don't look too closely at minecraft
13:00:19  <andythenorth> looks like it could....suck time
13:00:41  <FLHerne> It does. Seriously.
13:01:08  <LordAro> i would second that comment
13:01:20  <FLHerne> I spent quite some time building a fax machine out of m^3 blocks...
13:03:02  <LordAro> TrueBrain: appears to be non-functional
13:03:35  <orudge> It looks like a network issue; I can access it from another German server of mine, but that's with the same ISP
13:03:41  <orudge> can't access it from outside that network
13:03:51  <LordAro> FLHerne: i'm more interested in the redstone aspect myself
13:05:05  <LordAro> orudge: did i steal your bug report? :P
13:05:19  <FLHerne> It had a LOT of redstone. Encoded patterns made out of wool and transmitted as binary.
13:05:26  <orudge> LordAro: well, I reported it directly about two minutes before you :p
13:05:32  <orudge> but itw as only because of the guy in #tycoon that I noticed it
13:05:39  <FLHerne> Should provbably get back on topic though.
13:06:12  <LordAro> orudge: i saw that too :) but i guess you mesaged personally
13:07:52  <andythenorth> Alberth: the pixel generator is now in better shape....but I think it could be much cleaner
13:08:13  <andythenorth> the gestalt composes a lot of stuff which could be composed into objects provided by the pixa package
13:08:18  <Alberth> cleaning is a never-ending process :)
13:08:50  <Alberth> sounds good
13:09:11  <andythenorth> I'm not sure how to approach it yet.  I'm going to work on the custom gestalt stuff a bit more
13:09:41  <andythenorth> but it looks like the following could be classes: pixel, pixelsequence, colourset
13:09:51  <andythenorth> pixel is already done in a small standalone module
13:09:57  <Alberth> yeah, that's where it is going to break so you want to make sure that one works at least
13:10:14  <Alberth> oh, that's what P means :D
13:10:22  <andythenorth> I'm trying to figure out how this could be packaged so I or others can reuse it in other sets
13:10:29  <andythenorth> I don't want to be enslaved by copy-paste :P
13:10:36  <andythenorth> I need it for FISH ;)
13:10:39  <andythenorth> and CHIPS
13:10:44  <andythenorth> and HEQS...and ...
13:11:01  <Alberth> and YAGATNNG  ?
13:11:21  <andythenorth> exactly
13:11:38  <Alberth> (yet another great andythenorth newgrf)   :)
13:12:00  <andythenorth> yay, I guessed correctly :)
13:12:14  <Alberth> bummer, it was too easy thus :)
13:14:57  <Alberth> In general, you only find flaws in the design by using it. Make it nice, and start deploying. When finding flaws, don't give in to hacky solutions but make a proper solution instead.
13:16:22  <andythenorth> my code is clunky right now
13:16:40  <andythenorth> but can be cleaned
13:17:12  <andythenorth> I've got a lot of function calls like foo(offset=offset, load=load)
13:17:27  <andythenorth> which could probably drop the keywords, but I like keywords :P
13:17:40  <andythenorth> otherwise it's a lot of hunting for what parameters mean

13:21:28  <Alberth> imho 'offset' and 'load' are too generic, but that's perhaps my lack of domain knowledge
13:21:44  <andythenorth> they were made up examples in this case, but close...

17:27:16  <andythenorth> industry sprites could be pre-composited
17:28:06  <andythenorth> making the tile action 2s simpler
17:28:37  <andythenorth> seems a little regressive though
17:30:46  <supermop> ??
17:34:59  <andythenorth> currently industry tiles are composed with multiple sprites in varaction 2 (simple, extended or advanced)
17:35:27  <supermop> ok
17:35:29  <andythenorth> advanced layouts where multiple buildings, trucks etc are drawn could be simplified
17:35:40  <andythenorth> by compositing them into one png automatically
17:35:50  <andythenorth> then inserting that png as 'building'
17:36:18  <andythenorth> this possibly isn't better...or wise
17:40:04  <andythenorth> Alberth: I've never subclassed anything in python, but it seems like each gestalt might benefit from subclassing a generic gestalt class....
17:40:12  <andythenorth> does that sound in any way wise?

20:18:15  <Zuu> That said, if you are going to use a library you will probably still have to untar it and look at the public functions unless you doument the entire library API in the readme.
20:18:40  <Zuu> A readme would instead be a way to describe the library in more than 500 characters.
20:18:51  <LordAro> imo, libraries are for developers only, therefore are not needed for the 'end-user'
20:19:29  <Alberth> Zuu: doesn't squirrel have some standard documentation system, like eg doxygen ?
20:19:58  <Zuu> Alberth: Not that I'm aware of. At least I don't use any standard documentation system in my code.

21:10:43  *** cypher [] has joined #openttd
21:11:01  <planetmaker> and that he was a civil rights advocate in the GDR afair
21:11:29  <Rubidium> but he'd be basically only cutting ribbons, wouldn't he?
21:12:00  <Eddi|zuHause> he'd be "representing" and "being a role model"
21:12:07  <frosch123> yes, but he should not steal the golden scissor while doing so :p
21:13:38  <Eddi|zuHause> he's made some controversial comments in the past two years, and he's rather old. that's basically the criticism i heard so far
21:14:11  <Rubidium> isn't that called "experience"?
21:15:53  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: the Dutch and English equivalent-ish of your president are older, so he's not that old ;)
21:15:59  <supermop> oh yeah, your president resigned, right?
21:16:18  <frosch123> "resigned"
21:16:42  <Rubidium> and the one of Belgium's older as well
21:16:54  <Eddi|zuHause> he already "got resigned" two months ago, he just took quite long to realize it :p
21:17:10  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: but those are not elected people
21:17:40  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: as if your one is elected... it's rather "lobbied" I'd say
21:17:47  <Eddi|zuHause> however undemocratic the election is...
21:17:59  <frosch123> supermop: he resigned just before the parliament had to decide about nullify his immunity
21:18:34  <supermop> ah yeah
21:18:50  <Eddi|zuHause> we should have done something like with the mayor of duisburg
21:18:54  <supermop> only loosely been following it - i am way behind on my news
21:19:37  <Eddi|zuHause> the first mayor to be evicted from office through an out-of-schedule election

21:24:54  <Eddi|zuHause> the next open discussion is whether the not-anymore-president should get the 200.000€ per year "pension" for being just 1.5 years in office
21:25:46  <SpComb> no
21:26:20  <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: well, it is unlikely that he ends up in jail for more than 1 year; so that discussion is needed :p
21:26:50  <Eddi|zuHause> the law says he should get it for finishing a full (5 year) term, or for resigning out of political or health reasons before that
21:27:01  <Eddi|zuHause> the argument is that he resigned for personal reasons
21:28:32  <SpComb> what's resigning for a political reason?
21:28:32  <Eddi|zuHause> all previous presidents finished at least one full term, so the discussion never came up before
21:29:26  <Rubidium> just find a nutjob and you don't need to do the whole discussion

21:29:38  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
21:30:13  <Eddi|zuHause> he was like a year into his second term when he resigned
21:30:55  <frosch123> hmm, then i somehow did not notice his reellection
21:31:10  <Eddi|zuHause> SpComb: i guess when he resigns because veto-ing a law doesn't make enough of an impact, or something like that

21:32:03  <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: it was one of those "nobody really cares" things
21:32:11  <SpComb> right, so he should have raised some arbitrary political issue, and then resigned :)
21:32:38  <Rubidium> did Wulff maybe screw you by signing acta before resigning?
21:32:56  <Rubidium> or can't he do that?

21:33:19  <Rubidium> it'd be a big "fuck you" statement to everyone trying to get rid of him
21:34:08  <Eddi|zuHause> i think the president can't really do anything if the government doesn't tell him to
21:34:23  <Eddi|zuHause> but i'm not an expert

21:37:06  <SpComb> it was scary times when we had the Soviet Union as a neighbour
21:44:09  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: a law won't become effective if not signed by the president. And he's got the right to check the laws for conformity with the constitution
21:45:09  <planetmaker> iirc Köhler kinda at least delayed some laws quite a lot by that. Or even kinda stopped it, like the insane anti-terrorist law SchÀuble devised which would have allowed to shoot down passenger planes just because there's a terrorist in it who hijacked it successfully
21:45:42  <frosch123> planetmaker: he can forward laws to the consitutional court before signing them
21:46:07  <Eddi|zuHause> the plane-hijacking law is the only law that got vetoed in the last 20-ish years
21:46:56  <Eddi|zuHause> another one was pushed back: the internet-censorship law, but it was eventually signed (even though it was already clear that it was not to be enforced)

22:59:13  <planetmaker> 63 x 31
22:59:13  <Eddi|zuHause> 64px from left corner to right corner
22:59:21  <Eddi|zuHause> 32px from top corner to bottom corner
22:59:23  <planetmaker> *64
22:59:31  <Nat_as> ahh that's what I thought
23:00:04  <Nat_as> yeah 32 from top to bottom because isometric
23:00:31  <planetmaker> it's actually dimetric. not isometric
23:00:32  <Nat_as> but things will probably be taller than that because most objects extend up out of there grid square.
23:00:36  <Nat_as> oh it is?
23:00:39  <Nat_as> what's the diffrence?
23:00:53  <Eddi|zuHause> it's not 30°
23:00:57  <Nat_as> I do remember there being some diffrence between OTTD and Simutrans sprites
23:01:03  <Eddi|zuHause> but more like 26.5°
23:01:13  <Nat_as> so how does that effect the whole vanishing point thing?
23:01:15  <Eddi|zuHause> = #arctan(1/2)
23:01:31  <Nat_as> I thought Isometric just meant that parallel lines never meet?
23:01:49  <Eddi|zuHause> there's no vanishing point, it's a parallel projection
23:02:15  <Nat_as> when looking at the sprites, it seems straight lines have the same 1 up to across pixel angle.
23:02:23  <Nat_as> 1 up 2 across
23:02:36  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, hence arctan(1/2)
23:02:52  <Eddi|zuHause> but isometry defines the angle as arcsin(1/2)
23:02:59  <Eddi|zuHause> which this is not
23:04:19  <Nat_as> hmm?
23:04:23  <Nat_as> I don't understand?
23:04:36  <Nat_as> grid squares are twice as wide as they are tall right?
23:04:57  <Eddi|zuHause> "parallel projection" means parallel lines in the original are also parallel in the projection
23:05:11  <Nat_as> yes
23:05:13  <Eddi|zuHause> "isometry" is a special parallel projection, with a defined angle
23:05:34  <Eddi|zuHause> our angle differs from the one defined for "isometry", so ours is not "isometry"
23:05:39  <Eddi|zuHause> what's the difficulty?
23:06:04  <Nat_as> which is simutrans?
23:06:08  <Nat_as> and sim city 2000?
23:06:16  <Nat_as> because I've always called thoes isometric
23:06:22  <Nat_as> am I using the wrong word?
23:06:27  <Nat_as> or is OTTD somehow diffrent?
23:06:28  <Eddi|zuHause> yes.
23:07:07  <Eddi|zuHause> it's very common to use "isometry" loosely for all those games, but technically it's not correct
23:07:21  <Nat_as> okay
23:07:23  <Nat_as> I thought I was triping
23:08:11  <Nat_as> it's probably my favorite format
23:08:29  <Nat_as> I love building and Turn based strategy games that use it.
23:08:59  <Eddi|zuHause> also technically, "dimetric" isn't correct either
23:09:22  <Nat_as> what should it be called then?
23:09:32  <Eddi|zuHause> the right generalisation is "axonometric"
23:10:39  *** pjpe [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
23:11:41  <Rhamphoryncus> I wonder where in history that confusion was made
23:11:48  <Nat_as>
23:12:17  <Nat_as> wikipedia seems to say Axomomentic is a general term for 3d to 2d, and that isometric refers to this specific angle
23:12:57  <Rhamphoryncus> that's exactly what this says:
23:14:06  <Nat_as> yeah
23:14:10  <Rhamphoryncus> isometric = all dimensions the same, dimetric = two dimensions the same, trimetric = none of the dimensions the same
23:14:23  <Nat_as> so is OTTD 120 or 105 deg?
23:14:53  <Eddi|zuHause> no
23:15:30  <Nat_as> what is it then
23:15:41  <michi_cc> 116.6°
23:16:15  <Nat_as> how does that add up?
23:16:27  <michi_cc> OpenTTD is dimetric, but there's more than one possible dimetric projection.
23:16:58  <Eddi|zuHause> @calc 180/pi*atan(1/2)+90
23:16:58  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause: 116.565051177
23:17:01  <michi_cc> Dimetric only means that two of the three angles are identical, not that they are exactly 105°.
23:17:48  <michi_cc> SimCity 4 for example is trimetric, but doesn't use the angles from the wikipedia image either.
23:17:51  <Eddi|zuHause> michi_cc: at least the german wikipedia uses the term very different
23:18:08  <Rhamphoryncus> so 116.6°, 116.6°, 126.9°
23:18:25  <Nat_as> so will making all lines use 1 pixel up 2 pixels across look strange?
23:18:44  <Eddi|zuHause> Rhamphoryncus: well, it does have to add up to 360° :p
23:19:07  <Nat_as> for lines parallel to the ground and aligned with the grid that is.
23:19:19  <Nat_as> the grid squares are twice as high as they are wide?
23:19:31  <Rhamphoryncus> pbbbt:  180 − (360 ⋅ atan(0.5)) ∕ π
23:19:45  <michi_cc> Eddi|zuHause: I'm sure you can find other dimensions for dimetric, but the one according to DIN 5 was probably the only not deleted for "no verifiable source".
23:19:51  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_as: that's the beauty of the arctan(1/2) angle, it fits exactly in the pixel raster
23:19:57  <Nat_as> yeah
23:20:07  <Nat_as> I thought that was isometric.
23:20:19  <peter1138> it's not
23:20:25  <Eddi|zuHause> isometry is older than humans thinking in pixels :p
23:20:28  <Nat_as> it's the most convenient for pixel artists though.
23:20:34  <Nat_as> lol I guess so
23:20:48  <Rhamphoryncus> Nat_as: Until this conversation I thought it was isometric too.  I've even used it in my own stuff
23:20:52  <michi_cc>
23:21:17  <michi_cc> "commonly, the form of dimetric projection mistakenly referred to as 'isometric'"'
23:21:37  <Eddi|zuHause> michi_cc: "it's on wikipedia, it must be right" :p
23:22:02  <Eddi|zuHause> michi_cc: who says that this phrase isn't actually the "common mistake"?
23:22:08  <Nat_as> lol
23:22:11  <Nat_as> I believe you guys now.
23:22:25  <Rhamphoryncus> Basically, if you have a cube/box and you use isometric then the forward and backward corners will line up *perfectly*
23:22:36  <Rhamphoryncus> Which they almost never do in games
23:22:56  <michi_cc> Thankfully, mathematics are around longer then wikipedia :p
23:24:21  <__ln__> *than
23:24:24  <Nat_as> so in other words don't fret over the actual degrees and just use the 1:2 pixels as your ruler.
23:24:34  <Nat_as> because otherwise you will be caught up in decimels.
23:25:32  <Nat_as> Decimated
23:25:43  <Nat_as> (which means reduced by a factor of 10)
23:25:46  <Rhamphoryncus> The pixels are likely the original source anyway
23:26:06  <Nat_as> (if there is any more or less left over then they have not been decimated)
23:27:36  <Eddi|zuHause> maybe they were heximated?
23:27:46  * Rhamphoryncus decimates 89.9% of Nat_as
23:27:47  <Nat_as> lol
23:27:51  <Nat_as> possibly.
23:29:24  * Nat_as prefers to centimate his enemies.
23:30:31  <Nat_as> Why aren't decimetres a thing?
23:30:37  <Terkhen> good night
23:30:39  <Nat_as> it just skips to centi.
23:30:55  <Rhamphoryncus> umm, decimeters ARE a thing
23:31:03  <FLHerne> Chemistry seems to use dm^3 quite a lot
23:31:26  <Nat_as> they aren't as popular as there imperial analogue though.

23:33:29  <Nat_as> I'm not saying they DON'T exist, that's one of the benefits of metric is the orders of magnitude are implied rather than arbitrarily decided, but why leave out a useful increment?
23:33:43  <Rhamphoryncus> Nat_as: it's not useful
23:33:54  <FLHerne> dm would be useful for a lot of things actually
23:33:59  <Nat_as> that seems like saying feet aren't usefull because inches and yards exist
23:34:11  <valhallasw> FLHerne: the reason is because you can easily use fractions in the metric system
23:34:16  <Rhamphoryncus> In fact cm is only borderline.  Using only m and mm reduces the number of conversions you need
23:34:17  <valhallasw> i.e. 1.2m makes sense
23:34:33  <Nat_as> true I guess
23:34:36  <Rhamphoryncus> exactly
23:34:41  <valhallasw> the only reason feet are used is as N yards M feet X inches
23:34:57  <Rhamphoryncus> 1.2m = 12 dm = 120 cm = 1200 mm.  It's pointless.
23:35:05  <FLHerne> True, but a mm is only 0.1 cm
23:35:11  <Nat_as> the only advantage of Imperial is that it's measurements are at scales useful to most human activities as opposed to mathematically defined.
23:35:55  <Rhamphoryncus> Eventually you do gain by having different units, but the strong trend there is multiples of 3
23:36:04  <FLHerne> So why bother with cm, we could stick to multiples of 3...
23:36:05  <planetmaker> how's a yard more usefule than a metre, an inch better than a cm?
23:36:18  <Nat_as> they aren't
23:36:24  <Rhamphoryncus> FLHerne: exactly
23:36:35  <FLHerne> Inches are a good size to measure common objects actually
23:36:38  <Nat_as> but MM are useless to most people
23:36:38  <Eddi|zuHause> Rhamphoryncus: your argument is very weak
23:36:41  <FLHerne> As are feet
23:36:55  <Nat_as> and miles are 'bigger' than Kilometres.
23:37:07  <Rhamphoryncus> of hecto/deca/deci/centi, the only one that gets any use is centimetre.
23:37:10  <Nat_as> bigger is better.
23:37:12  <Eddi|zuHause> our miles are way bigger than yours
23:37:19  <FLHerne> 5.5 feet is easier than 165cm
23:37:26  <Rubidium> Nat_as: so are thous
23:37:30  <FLHerne> That's why dm would be good
23:37:31  <Rhamphoryncus> FLHerne: 1.65 m
23:37:39  <valhallasw> FLHerne: no. that's just your upbringing.
23:37:48  <Nat_as> I always thought measuring height in CM was strange
23:38:02  <Nat_as> I'd rather get height in feet or meters than inches or CM
23:38:07  <FLHerne> Not so sure, I was brought up using mainly metric
23:38:12  <planetmaker> Rhamphoryncus: that's quite a bold and imho quite wrong statement wrt unit-prefixes
23:38:34  <Rhamphoryncus> planetmaker: *shrug*  It's my experience
23:38:37  <Eddi|zuHause> Rhamphoryncus: the use of prefixes heavily depends on context
23:38:54  <Eddi|zuHause> hecto is quite oftenly used with areas
23:38:54  <FLHerne> I just find km and cm a bit too small for some purposes, because you need larger numbers
23:38:55  <TWerkhoven[l]> hecta gets a lot of use in land-area for instance
23:39:00  <TWerkhoven[l]> hectare
23:39:03  <Rubidium> FLHerne: but now you're tring to determine the height difference between 5.5 feet and 4.9 feet ;)
23:39:11  <planetmaker> especially when 1 Giga-Angstrom equals exactly 1dm ;-)
23:39:33  * appe distrupts the magical spells of downs syndrome induced railway code discussions with recommending the film 50/50.
23:39:34  <Nat_as> if you need more than two digets to measure something with minimal variation, you are using the wrong measuring stick.
23:39:57  <Nat_as> Feet and meters are better than inches and cm for measuring height.
23:40:08  <FLHerne> It's about half a foot
23:40:20  <FLHerne> Which is accurate enough for most things
23:40:39  <Rhamphoryncus> appe: downs syndrome?  I thought we all had aspergers?
23:40:51  <FLHerne> Thinking of units, why are model railway scales in mm/foot?
23:40:53  *** peteris [~peteris@] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
23:40:59  <Nat_as> 5 ft 6 inches or 1.6 metres instead of 66 inches or 167 cm
23:41:10  <appe> Rhamphoryncus: this is irc. sickness is always downs or cholera.
23:41:20  <Nat_as> Really? they mix systems like that?
23:41:26  <Nat_as> Probably because MM are really tiny
23:41:34  <Nat_as> one thing imperial does badly is minitures.
23:41:42  <Nat_as> anything smaller than an inch it breaks down.
23:41:50  <Rubidium> Nat_as: there are thous
23:42:01  <Rubidium> and 1000 thous are an inch
23:42:22  <Nat_as> never heard of thoes ever.
23:42:36  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_as: but 167cm avoids the use of fractions
23:43:03  <Eddi|zuHause> with an accuracy that is "good enough" for the average human (without a ruler)
23:43:24  <Nat_as> well 1 meter 67 cm looks more elegant than 167 cm, even though it's more words.
23:43:39  <valhallasw> 1.67m looks even better
23:43:55  <Nat_as> google tells me that Thous are a real thing and you did not make that up
23:44:00  <Nat_as> not sure why they aren't used.
23:44:10  <Nat_as> i guess if people want accuracy they switch to metric
23:44:32  <Nat_as> even in America which supposedly hates metric, uses it all the time for professional things.
23:44:41  <Nat_as> we just reserve imperial for casual use.
23:44:43  <valhallasw> yeah, except the rocket propulsion guys
23:44:47  <Nat_as> also measuring land.
23:44:49  <Nat_as> lol
23:44:49  <planetmaker> Nat_as: and what pressure do you have if you put one stone on a square foot?
23:44:58  <planetmaker> given that pressure usually is in pounds per square inch?
23:45:28  <Nat_as> yeah PSI is another scientific measure that uses imperial.
23:45:30  <Eddi|zuHause> every time i read "square foot" i must immediately think "Quadratlatschen" :p
23:45:31  <Nat_as> which is strange
23:45:38  <Rubidium> planetmaker: don't use square foot or square inch, but the proper units for areas: perches, roods and acres
23:45:39  <planetmaker> it's not "scientific" :-P
23:46:03  <appe> speaking of scientific
23:46:07  <planetmaker> at best it's an engineering unit.
23:46:14  <appe> what do you guys think of the latest CERN results?
23:46:16  <LordAro> night all
23:46:18  <valhallasw> planetmaker: then again, how many Oersted in one Tesla?
23:46:22  <Nat_as> yeah but engineers use metric often.
23:46:36  <Eddi|zuHause> <-- why does that exist in a chinese translation only? :p
23:46:37  <valhallasw> sorry, Oersted per A/m
23:46:37  <Nat_as> i guess it depends on the job
23:46:41  <planetmaker> valhallasw: I can tell you that there are 10**4 Gauss in a Tesla :-P
23:46:45  <FLHerne> For some reason, my normal unit scale seems to be mm, cm, feet, metres, miles...quite mixed really. I just use units which I think are a good size
23:47:05  <Nat_as> I like how a meter and a yard are almost equivlent
23:47:10  <Nat_as> as is a tone and a tonne
23:47:14  <planetmaker> lol
23:47:18  <FLHerne> ton?
23:47:27  <planetmaker> by the same means a Euro is a USD
23:47:30  <Nat_as> imperial ton vs metric tonne
23:47:30  <appe> bah
23:47:32  <Nat_as> yeah
23:47:35  <appe> i was born in the eighties.
23:47:40  <Nat_as> sure I'd kill somebody as an engineer like that.
23:47:41  <appe> for me, gauss was never a unit
23:47:42  <planetmaker> same accuracy. But I'd not trade 1:1 with you, I'm afraid
23:47:47  <valhallasw> planetmaker: as you probably know, cgs electromagnetism doesn't fiddle around with epsilon-0 and mu-0 but rather with a bunch of pi's and c's
23:47:54  <Nat_as> but it's nice to play with.
23:47:58  <appe> for me, gauss was the beginning of a word, turning into the greatest weapon in history.
23:48:00  <valhallasw> planetmaker: so 1 Oe = 1000/(4 pi) A/m ;-)
23:48:15  *** TWerkhoven [] has quit [Quit: He who can look into the future, has a brighter future to look into]
23:48:19  <planetmaker> valhallasw: sure. But... I don't like cgs. I tend to avoid that by nearly all means
23:48:30  <planetmaker> though I see where it comes from and where it has uses
23:48:36  <Eddi|zuHause> the only times i use "non-metric" units is when i order "ein Pfund Hackepeter"... and even then it's a metrified pound
23:48:44  <Rubidium> luckily they redefined the length of a yard to be 0.9144 cm, instead of one with a gazilion decimals for accuracy
23:49:01  <Eddi|zuHause> (i don't commonly talk about horsepowers...)
23:49:13  <Nat_as> is a horsepower really one horse?
23:49:20  <__ln__> oh, the temperature outside is almost 493.5 degrees Rankine now.
23:49:22  <Nat_as> I mean even a shitty car has almost 100 of them
23:49:23  <planetmaker> no. It's a power unit :-P
23:49:26  <Rubidium> s/cm/m/
23:49:30  *** LordAro [] has quit [Quit: "Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so."]
23:49:32  <Rubidium> guess I ought to go to bed
23:49:40  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_as: a modern day racing horse typically has less than 1hp
23:49:47  <Nat_as> and I'm sure a hundred horses would be stronger than a civic.
23:49:50  <Nat_as> really?
23:50:14  <valhallasw> the hp was used to compare steam engines to horse-operated winches for mines, iirc
23:50:15  <planetmaker> Nat_as: there's a (big) difference in the continued power and the momentary power output of any living being
23:50:19  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_as: 1 hp was measured by taking an average 19th century working horse and have it go in circles for one hour
23:50:30  <Nat_as> oh
23:50:32  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_as: modern day racing horses are bread to have very short endurance
23:50:44  <Nat_as> so 50 horses could outpull a motorcycle with 100 hp
23:51:00  <planetmaker> they'd have more friction ;-)
23:51:10  <Nat_as> lol yes traction is the big thing
23:51:16  <Rubidium> but in the end the motorcycle will win as the horses get exhausted ;)
23:51:24  <Nat_as> Hmm, how are the horsedrawn carrages in the Heavy equipment set statted?
23:51:39  <Nat_as> do they have single diget HP values?
23:51:39  <Eddi|zuHause> they were implemented before realistic acceleration
23:51:48  <Eddi|zuHause> and are buggy
23:51:55  <Nat_as> actually cars don't HAVE hp values displayed
23:51:59  <Nat_as> just max speed and cargo.
23:52:15  <Nat_as> even though some of them are animated like trains, they are a single unit.
23:52:28  <Nat_as> it would be nice if you could buy trailers like trains though.
23:52:29  <planetmaker> Nat_as: then you don't play with realistic accel
23:54:27  <Nat_as> there needs to be a 1800s newgrif
23:54:56  <Nat_as> heck I'd just like to be able to start in 1900
23:55:03  <Nat_as> before 1930
23:55:10  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_as: anyway, the point is, you can't measure "horsepower" by having a rope pulling contest
23:55:34  <Eddi|zuHause> because that doesn't measure the continuous power over an hour or more
23:55:49  <appe> horses are for eating.
23:55:56  <Nat_as> and glue
23:56:24  <Rhamphoryncus> Nat_as: I keep starting games in 1925 or 1930 and it's painful
23:56:25  <Nat_as> imagine a wild west newgrif with stagecoaches and steam trains
23:56:34  *** FLHerne [] has left #openttd []
23:56:39  <Nat_as> can you newgrif disasters?
23:56:47  <Rhamphoryncus> The game speed needs to be scaled to make it playable
23:56:51  <Nat_as> like indians and bandits?
23:57:00  <Eddi|zuHause> i believe the earliest "sane" rail newgrfs around are starting 1870-ish
23:57:26  <Nat_as> but we had trains before that right?
23:58:05  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, but that doesn't mean it creates sane gameplay
23:58:36  <Eddi|zuHause> e.g. cargo and passenger production must be downscaled
23:59:24  <Nat_as> 1830 is when the first steam train happened.
