00:34:50  <frosch123> yes, if you are on *nix

04:06:05  <Nat_aS> anybody awake?
04:07:13  <Nat_aS> can anybody crit this work in progress?
04:07:27  <Nat_aS> based on this crazy nazi train
04:07:46  <Nat_aS> is there a max height for trains before they start hitting bridges?
04:12:36  <Rhamphoryncus> nothing in the game mechanics.  Just aesthetic
04:13:05  <Rhamphoryncus> If you really look close you'll realize that all trains are several times taller than tunnels/bridges :)
04:13:50  <Nat_aS> oh cool
04:13:57  <Nat_aS> and lol
04:16:04  <Rubidium> no try that in a rendered 3D world
04:21:21  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: i think your side view is backwards
04:21:37  <Eddi|zuHause> it looks in <- direction, but should be -> direction on that spot
04:22:21  <Nat_aS> for the lead engine or the tail car?
04:22:48  <Eddi|zuHause> all of them
04:22:49  <Nat_aS> the one facing > is the lead engine, the one facing < is the tail car
04:22:55  <Nat_aS> so they should be the other way around?
04:23:38  <Eddi|zuHause> that. or your preview is backwards
04:24:04  <Nat_aS> the preview is just copy paste
04:24:11  <Eddi|zuHause> in depot, the train is shown in <- direction
04:24:17  <Nat_aS> oh
04:24:24  <Nat_aS> derp
04:24:29  <Eddi|zuHause> so i just assumed your full train is like that
04:24:44  *** rickytaylor26 [~quassel@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:24:49  <Nat_aS> I just made it facing the direction the picture it is based on is.

07:15:24  <Nat_aS> can I get a crit?
07:15:53  <Nat_aS> this is what it's based on, I don't know anything about it except that it was designed by the nazis and probably never build
07:16:57  <Nat_aS> built
07:17:35  <Nat_aS> making rounded edges in isometry is hard.

07:47:24  <andythenorth> why does the trees tool always build random trees, rather than the selected type?
07:47:51  <planetmaker> andythenorth: the first tree on a tile should be of the selected type
07:48:03  <planetmaker> the subsequent ones then follow a certain tile layout pattern
07:48:10  <andythenorth> k
07:48:47  <andythenorth> that is the case
07:49:18  <planetmaker> there's like two dozen different tree tiles. That's it. Times growth stages
07:49:24  *** DDR [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:49:37  <Nat_aS> well in OTTD you can live out the alternate history where Germany was treated fairly after WWI and nobody got buthurt, and all the crazy scientists got nice jobs building crazy shit to rebuild postwar europe.
07:49:55  <Nat_aS> also hitler got accepted into art school.
07:50:25  <Nat_aS> and won a charlie chaplin lookalike contest.
07:50:55  <andythenorth> it's interesting

08:38:36  <Rubidium> if you got custom bridge heads and building stuff on top of a tunnel entrance
08:38:47  *** Booth is now known as Chris_Booth
08:38:55  <Rubidium> wouldn't then the best next step be: a bridge head that's also a tunnel entrance?
08:39:44  <Rubidium> that'd be really useful
08:40:26  <Rubidium> and then you're actually (almost) a sort of subway implemented
08:40:59  <Rubidium> just build a row of 0 long tunnels with signals in the entrance
08:41:15  <Rubidium> and build 0 length bridges over that with signals on the bridgehead
08:41:30  <Rubidium> or am I going insane now?

09:11:35  <zxbiohazardzx> Rubidium regarding your reply in the multithreading
09:11:56  <zxbiohazardzx> arent the ships heavy on CPU if you have alot of them (mainly due to pathfinding for ships?
09:14:06  <andythenorth> Alberth:
09:17:05  <Rubidium> zxbiohazardzx: only under certain circumstances. With proper buoy usages it's actually not that big
09:17:32  <Rubidium> even then, most games I see forbid ships, don't use ships or use ships for very short distances
09:17:50  <zxbiohazardzx> fair enough, it just comes down to the old "too much work for too little benefit"
09:18:13  <zxbiohazardzx> can i ask someone to try to apply a diff and see if it compiles fine?
09:18:24  <Rubidium> well, you'd still need to add loads of synchronisation
09:18:50  <Rubidium> e.g. arrival at stations needs to happen in the same order everytime
09:18:56  <zxbiohazardzx> true
09:19:00  <Alberth> andythenorth: number 1200 !
09:19:06  <Rubidium> and you'd need synchronisation for updating the vehicle location caches
09:19:31  <Alberth> andythenorth: it looks like a nice definition to me :p
09:19:39  <Rubidium> all have a negative impact on all other vehicles
09:20:13  <andythenorth> Alberth: I might try coding it later
09:20:26  <andythenorth> so my might become a dispatcher script
09:20:38  <zxbiohazardzx> im not that much of a coder Rubidium
09:20:39  <andythenorth> and the gestalts should probably learn how to run standalone
09:20:45  <zxbiohazardzx> i just updated the house patch
09:20:52  <zxbiohazardzx> till then i hardly did coding on ottd
09:21:05  <zxbiohazardzx> i did do a minor software engineering and got around java alot
09:21:10  <zxbiohazardzx> and i do understand the cpp part
09:21:24  <Alberth> andythenorth: stand-alone?   you want to run a gestalt as a child process of
09:21:25  <zxbiohazardzx> just writing it from scratch is not my thing :P
09:21:42  <andythenorth> Alberth: I'm not sure
09:21:54  <Alberth> I'd use make for that :p
09:21:58  <andythenorth> I want them to be able to be invoked as separate, parallel processes by make
09:22:29  <andythenorth> if we decode filenames, we could, in theory, run one gestalt process per filename
09:22:45  <Alberth> you could make main decode what to do, and then import the right gestalt, and let it do the work
09:23:10  <andythenorth> actually, I'm intrigued by how effective it might be
09:23:15  <zxbiohazardzx> and i liked the idea of being able to place houses manually in the scenario editor
09:23:21  <andythenorth> just the imports (no rendering) appears to take 2s at the moment
09:23:42  <Alberth> 2nd time as well?
09:23:54  <andythenorth> scrub that
09:24:00  <andythenorth> logical error by me :P
09:24:10  <zxbiohazardzx> i think planetmaker even suggested to make it work similar to the object placer, where you can select a house and build it. that for me would be great, but i cant code that well, so i decided that id first update the patch that existed to the 24018 revision (yesterdays head)
09:24:12  <Alberth> ie the first time you have a disk-cache to fill, and possibly have some python compilation going on
09:24:14  <andythenorth> imports are 0.04s
09:25:20  <andythenorth> can imports be dynamic?
09:25:38  <andythenorth> e.g. for item in [list]: import item
09:25:42  <andythenorth> is that even wise?
09:26:02  <Alberth> what if you use "all" as value for stating you want to generate all png of that value?  ie  tank-trailer-all-1_8-all.png
09:26:31  <andythenorth> could work
09:26:41  <andythenorth> I'll see how the code smells when I write it
09:26:57  <Alberth> I wold not do dynamic imports
09:27:00  <andythenorth> BANDIT has to know what 'all' consists of anyway
09:27:08  <andythenorth> to make use of the graphics in spritesets
09:27:47  <Alberth> and it saves you just a few lines of code
09:33:02  <andythenorth> dynamic imports smell :)
09:33:16  <andythenorth> the gestalts change rarely

09:52:01  * andythenorth hmms
09:52:26  <andythenorth> (1) how to pass things to gestalts: as params in python, or make them use shell args for communication?
09:52:28  *** TGYoshi [~TGYoshi@] has joined #openttd
09:53:07  <andythenorth> (2) gestalts need input file (floorplan), should it be passed, or is that an internal detail?  It (mostly) relates to length, but might also relate to subtype issue
09:59:17  <Alberth> ad 1: the former should be possible, so you can build the latter if needed :)
10:00:00  <andythenorth> params in python is simpler at this stage
10:00:11  <Alberth> ad 2: what if I use 'all' as subtype?  I'd say the gestalt itself should figure it out
10:00:36  <andythenorth> +1
10:00:50  <andythenorth> I forgot about cargo variants in my spec
10:00:57  <andythenorth> e.g. STEL can be coils, bars, pipes etc
10:01:12  <andythenorth> not sure yet if that's a gestalt subtype, or a cargo subtype
10:01:16  <andythenorth> think it's cargo
10:02:25  <Alberth> +1

10:15:39  <andythenorth> Alberth: basic dispatcher?
10:16:16  <andythenorth> needs to pass filename obv.
10:16:41  <andythenorth> target_files is for test only, that would be passed by make or such
10:20:55  *** smoovi [] has joined #openttd
10:22:14  <Alberth> x.split('_')[0]  --> x.split('_', 1), but looking good, imho
10:22:15  <andythenorth> cleaned up a little:
10:22:25  *** FLHerne [] has joined #openttd
10:25:45  <Alberth>   bottom one is a bit further cleanup
10:27:52  <andythenorth> the split('_',1) seems to be failing ;)
10:29:55  <andythenorth> hmm
10:29:57  <Alberth> oh, it's still a list, you need [0] after it
10:30:08  <andythenorth> my split() only allows two params, docs say three
10:30:27  <Alberth> 'filename' is the first one
10:30:34  <andythenorth> k
10:30:59  <andythenorth> I'm going to rename this as
10:31:05  <andythenorth> and have act like a fake make
10:31:43  <Alberth> x = C(); x.f(y)        becomes    x = C();  C.f(x, y)    <-- where 'x' is 'self'
10:32:45  <andythenorth> makes sense
10:38:33  <Ammler> Alberth: maybe we could integrate this:
10:39:02  *** peteris [~peteris@] has joined #openttd
10:40:37  <Alberth> that would be useful indeed
10:40:58  <Ammler> andythenorth: there is a make replacement with python afaik
10:41:26  <Ammler> we once checked that as we were investigating build environments for newgrfs
10:41:58  <Ammler> can't remember the name, something with s
10:42:54  <Ammler> Alberth: but it needs integration to your hook, as we need it for push :-)

11:07:38  <xiong> I'm not sure what I'm seeing. Has anyone noticed reluctance of industry to accept cargo generated at the same station? I have a train set to 'Unload and take cargo (near end)' then 'Unload and leave empty (far end). The cargo is unloaded but not accepted.
11:08:24  *** peteris [~peteris@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
11:09:37  <Ammler> xiong: so it is working?

11:11:32  <andythenorth> Ammler: I did find scons yes
11:12:04  <andythenorth> the one that looks dead is
11:12:48  <xiong> I'm not sure the particular use case is relevant; I seem to have similar trouble in another case. There, I definitely want to consume all production without leaving the station. So I had a truck repeatedly loading and unloading. The cargo was not consumed. I eventually created an extra truck stop and sent the truck back and forth, which worked.
11:12:50  <andythenorth> also Ammler
11:13:01  *** Pikka [] has joined #openttd
11:13:45  <xiong> Um, for even more irrelevant detail, the latter case was a FIRS Coal Mine and Lime Kiln at the same station.
11:13:49  <Alberth> oh, aap, from bram , author of vim :)
11:14:12  *** FLHerne [] has joined #openttd
11:14:50  *** peteris [~peteris@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
11:14:53  <Alberth> afaik you do have to actually transport the cargo, even if it is just one tile
11:15:23  <xiong> The current case is a bit more complex. I've got an excess of FS at several stations so I'm running a big train around to all of them; loading, then conditionally transferring or unloading to consume the excess.
11:15:45  *** peteris [~peteris@] has joined #openttd
11:16:57  <xiong> That so, Alberth? I've been successful in so many cases with the small loop trucks ("piglets") rationing out ES/FS and input cargoes. Of course, these come originally from somewhere else.
11:18:35  <xiong> I also use loop trucks to keep output cargo "fresh" by constant transfer-and-load. It seems to me that, back when I started this practice, if I did *not* use a transfer order, my cargo might be consumed at the producing station. Do I just remember that poorly or has the game changed?
11:18:54  *** peteris [~peteris@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
11:19:08  <Alberth> oh, I could very well be wrong
11:19:41  <Alberth> I don't setup complicated cargo transfer schemes normally
11:19:43  <xiong> Mm, dunno, Alberth. Your statement is rational, realistic, and consistent with current observations.
11:19:54  *** peteris [~peteris@] has joined #openttd
11:20:20  <xiong> You might still be wrong but I'll adopt your view as a working hypothesis.
11:20:47  <Alberth> the only corner case I can think of, is if you first transfer cargo to some station, thn load it, and unload it again there.  I have no idea at all what happens then
11:21:34  <andythenorth> oh buildit is by chris mcdonough
11:21:48  <xiong> It's not a great burden to add these extra truck stops and alter orders to go back and forth. It's actually a simpler order list -- since to order a vehicle to the same station only, requires a total of 4 orders to avoid the "duplicate order" warning.

14:39:07  <Yexo> AICargoList is not a function, it's a class

18:23:44  <andythenorth> I could
18:24:09  <andythenorth> I'd need to figure out a canonical source of data for what 'all' is
18:24:37  <andythenorth> currently that's the gestalt, which is logical but not desirable
18:26:41  <Alberth> add a way to query it from the gestalt?

18:35:26  <_maddy> I need to determine where I can build a station, next to an industry.. I thought it logical AIIndustry class would have something like GetSize, along with GetLocation

20:29:43  <Eddi|zuHause> depends on which religion you ask

20:35:14  <planetmaker> none
20:35:32  *** lmergen [] has joined #openttd
20:35:39  <andythenorth> for obvious reason I have overlooked, which is...?
20:36:07  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: the whole underlying design is unfit for parallelization...
20:36:17  <planetmaker> you can query other tiles, towns...
20:36:31  <planetmaker> which can be modified again by other varaction2
20:37:25  *** perk11 [~perk11@] has joined #openttd
20:37:33  <andythenorth> I wondered about the tile case
20:37:35  <andythenorth> what about vehicles?
20:37:48  <andythenorth> there's always some global thing in newgrf :P
20:38:21  <andythenorth> fwiw, I'm not complaining about lack of MP use
20:38:24  <andythenorth> just interested
20:40:54  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: alone the fact that you can query the "related object" will screw your plans...
20:42:06  <andythenorth> is it theoretically impossible to parallelise vehicle varaction 2 chains?
20:42:10  <andythenorth> or just silly
20:42:11  <andythenorth> ?
20:43:09  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't think it can be done without sacrificing some (corner-case?) functionality
20:43:58  <andythenorth> for vehicles, it's probably not critical functionality
20:44:17  <andythenorth> a consist seems to be a pretty self-contained entity to me
20:45:21  <Eddi|zuHause> but it's exactly _inside_ the consists that you will cause trouble
20:45:33  <planetmaker> except for rails or roads
20:46:09  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: I'm assuming you can't parellelise the vehicles in the consist
20:46:22  <andythenorth> you have to choose somewhere to start evaluating, presumably the start :P
20:46:30  * andythenorth is guessing, but could read the code
20:46:43  * andythenorth is actually shirking re-writing cargo sprite generation
20:52:08  <planetmaker> andythenorth, vehicle varaction2 also needs to be sequential or you have to toss all random action2
20:52:19  <andythenorth> ok
20:52:38  * andythenorth stops shirking cargo sprite generation rewriting thereof
20:52:40  <planetmaker> or at least the re-randomisation of the vehicle bits needs to be sequential
20:53:27  * andythenorth suggests an optimisation equivalent to MP: reduce vehicle limit, decrease map size :)
20:53:32  <planetmaker> at least vehicle behaviour should not depend on the non-sequential random actions :-). But in principle it can currently
20:53:43  <planetmaker> Like I could return vehicle_speed = 38 * random(10)
20:53:51  <planetmaker> vehicle_max_speed
20:54:15  <Eddi|zuHause> a propos... anyone tested my randomized livery change delay?
20:55:10  <andythenorth> I tested your crossings patch
20:55:10  <andythenorth> :P
20:55:15  <andythenorth> what happened to that?
20:55:19  <andythenorth> also your fence patch
20:55:38  <Eddi|zuHause> nothing happened... still waiting on somebody to code the drawing part
20:55:49  <Nat_aS> Now with 2cc!
20:55:58  <Nat_aS> can anybody give me advice on the windows?
20:56:07  <Nat_aS> and the diagonals?
20:56:11  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: the drawing part of crossings?
20:56:20  * andythenorth coded crossings patches once
20:56:22  <andythenorth> got annoyed
20:56:22  <Nat_aS> Diagonals are what the player sees most of the time, but they kinda look ugly
20:56:43  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: drawing diagonal tracks on road crossings
20:56:55  <Nat_aS> I can't really get rounded edges in diagonals looking good, there is no easy rule like the 1:2 for straight lines
20:57:15  <andythenorth> first I'd have to draw you that stupid composited road-rail piece so that you could force it to appear under tram tracks
20:57:32  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: my solution to diagonals looking ugly is making them longer :p
20:57:57  <Nat_aS> isn't that the max lenght for diagonals though?
20:57:59  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: what do you mean?
20:58:09  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: yeah... i cheat :p
20:58:35  <andythenorth> Nat_aS: your diagonals don't look so bad, you use an odd window colour though
20:58:49  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: tram tracks insist on putting a road piece under rail crossings
20:59:01  <andythenorth> I spent a weekend trying to stop that, but it's pretty tricky
20:59:08  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: yes. draw road, draw rail, draw tram
20:59:19  <Nat_aS> what would be a better color
20:59:24  <Alberth> black
20:59:25  <Nat_aS> I was not really sure what to use.
20:59:27  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: but that has nothing to do with diagonal crossings :)
20:59:27  <Nat_aS> black?
20:59:36  <andythenorth> Nat_aS the dark purple used everywhere else ;)
20:59:45  <Alberth> good night all
20:59:47  <Nat_aS> which is it on the pallet?
20:59:51  <andythenorth> Alberth: good night
21:00:01  <andythenorth> Nat_aS: start the game, enable newgrf debug tools, and look at some of the default vehicles
21:00:19  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: how i cheat the vehicle length:
21:00:25  *** Alberth [] has left #openttd []
21:00:28  <Nat_aS> how do i do that
21:00:52  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: it's actually 3 vehicles that just look like one
21:01:08  <andythenorth> Nat_aS:
21:01:16  <Nat_aS> >Trains bending with the track
21:01:23  <Nat_aS> WHAT SORCERY IS THIS?
21:01:45  <andythenorth> Nat_aS: the windows are usually 128-135 if using the DOS palette:
21:02:13  <andythenorth> *not* 170-177 which some people have used :o
21:02:30  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: a normal vehicle is 8lu (length-units). to create the illusion of a 10lu vehicle i make three vehicles of length 3-4-3, and make the two 3's invisible, only draw the 4
21:03:15  <Eddi|zuHause> the bending is some additional magic to avoid the vehicle sticking out of the rails too far
21:04:11  <Nat_aS> it's nice to see this game has consistant style
21:04:23  <Nat_aS> ;) unlike some games
21:05:59  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: most of the magic is in these files: (there's one for every vehicle length betewen 3lu and 16lu (=1 full tile))
21:07:24  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: and the accompanying vehicle template:
21:07:24  <Nat_aS> so whole tile engines are possible?
21:07:27  <Nat_aS> :0
21:09:33  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: for the different length just exchange the 10 for the desired length, e.g. 16:
21:10:29  <Nat_aS> so these are hand drawn? or traced 3d renders?
21:10:39  <Eddi|zuHause> this is hand drawn
21:10:48  <Nat_aS> anyways, you guys are blowing my mind with newgrif fu
21:11:01  <Nat_aS> I take back what I said about simutrans having better coding
21:11:03  <Eddi|zuHause> i know, i'm kind of an extreme case :p
21:11:10  <Nat_aS> Newgrifs blow them out of the water
21:11:23  <Eddi|zuHause> and i didn't even talk about autogeneration yet :p
21:11:29  <Nat_aS> you are so limited by the engine in simutrans when it comes to making fancy new trains.
21:11:47  <Nat_aS> like they don't even support randomized cargo sprites for doublestack cars
21:11:50  <Eddi|zuHause> most of the magic needed for this to work is only in trunk for 2 months
21:11:56  <Eddi|zuHause> or 3
21:12:03  <Nat_aS> or half loaded cars
21:12:14  <Nat_aS> both of which I wish I had when I made doublestack cars for them
21:12:22  <Nat_aS> I think they might still be in there latest build
21:12:28  <Nat_aS> so ugly
21:12:49  <Nat_aS> there is no half loaded sprite, and the containers are CC only
21:13:06  <Nat_aS> no multicolor shiping containers :c
21:13:44  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm massively bulding upon other people's foundations here
21:14:02  <andythenorth> gah...I hadn't considered the CETS case when setting up cargo sprite generation :|
21:14:19  <Nat_aS> what?
21:14:22  <Eddi|zuHause> many of the ideas were there previously, but i pieced them together
21:15:00  *** Scuddles [] has joined #openttd
21:15:00  <Nat_aS> man, I'm not sure I could sprite cars with that many rotations
21:15:04  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: I'm planning to release a full set of cargo load sprites, GPL, on nml templates, length 2/8 to 8/8
21:15:14  <andythenorth> but only for 8 angles :P
21:15:24  *** Scuddles [] has quit []
21:15:29  <Nat_aS> yeah, a lot of those angles are hard to draw
21:15:35  <Nat_aS> without 3d tracing
21:15:38  <Nat_aS> which I dispise
21:15:43  <Nat_aS> because of simutrans
21:15:52  <Nat_aS> it's the reason the game is so ugly
21:15:54  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause however the sprite generator doesn't know too much about angles, it just uses floorplans
21:15:58  *** supermop [] has joined #openttd
21:16:16  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: as long as you can use the template as a floor plan...
21:16:21  <andythenorth> yup
21:16:34  <andythenorth> but something like a tarpaulin load - that would need drawing for extra angles
21:16:40  <andythenorth> same for machinery, vehicles, etc
21:16:48  <andythenorth> steel coils - I've got covered :P
21:16:58  <andythenorth> make all loads round, you're fine :P
21:17:17  <Eddi|zuHause> well, we can think about that when we get there...
21:17:28  *** Firartix [] has joined #openttd
21:17:36  <Nat_aS> will there be a geniric shiping container sprite that can be copy pasted for consistancy?
21:17:43  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm more interested in getting some generic shapes that not all vehicles are green blobs, but something that vaguely resembles an engine/wagon
21:17:46  <Nat_aS> and be the same on boats, stations, trucks, and trains?
21:18:20  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: the generator is close to usable....I'll be looking for users :)
21:18:31  <Nat_aS> maybe the game could even track which sprite of container is droped off where so it would look like they are actualy being moved around
21:19:02  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: that's a little too much... unless you tie the container colour to a cargo
21:19:31  <andythenorth> Nat_aS: there'll be a full set of shipping container sprites, 20' and 40'
21:19:37  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: or you implement containers as a vehicle, and loading/unloading containers as a special case of shunting
21:19:40  <andythenorth> :)
21:20:34  <Nat_aS> well the idea would be to have stations remember which color container they receive, and "store" them in there own sprite, then when they give cargo to a veichile, they will set the loaded veichile to have that sprite
21:20:42  <Nat_aS> it would be an illusion
21:21:00  <Nat_aS> just remember the color it gave you, keep that color, then give that color to the next train
21:21:14  <Nat_aS> probably a lot of work for such a subtle effect
21:21:38  <Nat_aS> man I love shiping containers, will this newgrif have new stations?
21:21:43  <Nat_aS> like a container port station?
21:21:58  <andythenorth> Nat_aS: you've found ISR, right?
21:22:01  <Nat_aS> I like the industrial stations renewal set, but it could be better.
21:22:05  <Nat_aS> yes
21:22:13  <Nat_aS> it's the best station newgrif
21:22:18  <Eddi|zuHause> it's a little dated meanwhile, could use an update
21:22:21  <Nat_aS> but it lacks stations for some industries,
21:22:25  <Nat_aS> yeah it's old
21:22:37  <andythenorth> there's also DWE stations
21:22:37  <Nat_aS> and also there is no equivlent for PAX stations
21:22:38  <Nat_aS> :c
21:22:42  <Nat_aS> DWE?
21:22:43  <Eddi|zuHause> not as bad as MBs passenger stations, though
21:22:55  <andythenorth> here you go Nat_aS
21:22:58  <Nat_aS> also the "Classification Yard" set in it seems halfassed
21:23:35  <Nat_aS> actualy
21:23:38  <Nat_aS> what is really needed
21:23:45  <Nat_aS> is a seaports newgrif
21:23:54  <Nat_aS> that allows placing seaports like stations
21:23:58  <Nat_aS> lenght and width
21:24:15  <Nat_aS> built over water, as long as one side is touching land
21:24:27  <Nat_aS> and customizible the way industrial stations are
21:24:56  <Nat_aS> and that link is really cool
21:26:32  <Eddi|zuHause> just had to laugh at the lego-smilies... don't think i've seen those before :p

21:52:10  <xiong> Yes, I play with DWE as well. I have quite a few station sets.
21:53:34  <xiong> Just because it's a train station tile doesn't mean you can't build other stations with it -- seaports, bus and truck stops. Just join the tile onto the basic dock, stop, or even airport.
21:54:15  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, what would you add / change with ISR?
21:54:33  <planetmaker> I'd change the forced track type for some
21:54:37  <frosch123> change? the grfid :p
21:54:41  <planetmaker> haha :-)
21:55:11  <Eddi|zuHause> don't remember, haven't played in a while so i don't know what annoyed me the last time
21:56:06  <Eddi|zuHause> the most important was that the stockpiles should depend on some average throughput, not the currently waiting cargo (needs some statistics exposed as variables)
21:56:55  <planetmaker> ah, yes
21:56:58  <Eddi|zuHause> also: not all parts of the "full (drag&drop) stations" are available as individual pieces
21:57:20  <planetmaker> that I consider not that tragic. Actually I'd rather add some more drag&drop stations
21:57:58  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm not usually using the full stations. mostly i'm making empty stations and put some sprinkles in
21:58:10  <frosch123> night
21:58:13  *** frosch123 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
21:58:45  <Eddi|zuHause> and the shunting yard needs a matching eyecandy railtype with the same ground tile
21:59:17  <Eddi|zuHause> and more shunting tiles
21:59:34  <Eddi|zuHause> switches in all kinds of directions
22:00:17  <Eddi|zuHause> and eye-candy wagons on the shunting rails
22:00:58  *** supermop [] has quit [Quit: supermop]
22:01:34  <planetmaker> yeah, the latter makes sense. Though that IMHO is difficult. Not sure I'd do that, if I were the author of a station set
22:01:48  <planetmaker> it's only fit my personal choice of NewGRFs which is... not very versatile necessarily
22:02:02  <Eddi|zuHause> indeed, that's a problem
22:02:40  <planetmaker> thus I think the better solution is invisible engines to place wagons on real tracks
22:03:16  *** supermop [] has joined #openttd
22:03:19  <Eddi|zuHause> could use some evil AI callbacks like "give me a wagon that carries cargo <Y>, and put that as effect vehicle on location <X>"
22:03:20  <planetmaker> (or maybe not invisible, but looking like a wagon)
22:03:32  <Nat_aS> what is DWE?
22:03:43  <planetmaker> lol, Eddi|zuHause  :-)
22:03:54  <planetmaker> Nat_aS, a NewGRF
22:04:04  <planetmaker> or rather a few NewGRFs, iirc
22:04:42  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: well. that's the most extreme way i can immediately think of that will be independent of the vehicle and industry set used
22:05:41  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: the "wagons" could then effectively work like the stockpiles, i.e. get more or less depending on throughput
22:06:47  <planetmaker> :-) It's an interesting concept. Would maybe need a new CB for stations... but might be worth it when someone [TM] cares to implement both
22:09:16  <Eddi|zuHause> the whole shunting yard concept should maybe be split off ISR

22:31:33  <FLHerne>  Is there any way to simulate right-clicking?
22:32:03  <FLHerne> Such as [modifier]-click or something
22:32:11  <Nat_aS> apparently that port can't handle click dranging
22:32:17  <Nat_aS> which makes tracks hard to do
22:32:40  <FLHerne> That would be annoying
22:33:05  <FLHerne> Even more so than not being able to move the map
22:34:01  <Nat_aS> almost as anoying as SImutrans autorail feature
22:34:13  <Nat_aS> less because it wont do things you don't want it to do
22:34:48  <FLHerne> What does that do? Never played Simutrans...
22:35:21  <Nat_aS> in simutrans you can lay tracks by clicking in two points, and letting the pathfinding engine pick the best route between them
22:35:28  <Eddi|zuHause> i'd be more worried about assembling trains
22:35:32  <Nat_aS> this sounds like a good idea unless you want to lay parallel tracks
22:35:55  <Nat_aS> because it tries to use existing tracks whenever posible
22:36:01  <Nat_aS> and will connect instead of following

23:24:06  <Nat_aS> how am I going to install ubuntu onto this damn thing if I can't get it to boot off of USB, and installing off of a CD crashes halfway through
23:28:21  <TinoDidriksen> Nat_aS, just use VirtualBox?
23:28:45  <Nat_aS> how does that work?
23:30:49  <TinoDidriksen> - it's a virtual machine, but if you have a CPU with virtualization extensions then it's almost as fast as native.
23:32:11  <Nat_aS> well a friend of mine picked up a used computer at goodwill, and I want to reformat it to run ubuntu because it's previous owners left it full of spyware
23:32:22  <Nat_aS> but I can'
23:32:39  <Nat_aS> can't get it to boot of of USB, and booting off of CD is really slow and has lots of disk read errors
23:33:04  <TinoDidriksen> Oh...well then, you can put the HDD in another machine and install, then move it back.
23:33:22  <Nat_aS> ...
23:33:31  <Nat_aS> if only I had another machine, all my computers are laptops
23:33:32  <Nat_aS> :V
23:33:37  <Nat_aS> but that is a good idea.
23:33:41  <Nat_aS> shit
23:34:09  <planetmaker> you can also attach a HDD to a laptop, you know...
23:34:48  <Nat_aS> actualy my vaio does have an Esata port
23:35:25  <Nat_aS> so I plug that in, then plug my USB key into another port, then boot off of that, and install Ubuntu into the pluged in drive?
23:35:51  <Nat_aS> careful not to accidently select my laptop's own HD and reformat the Windows install there
23:35:59  <TinoDidriksen> I would remove the laptop drive while doing that, just to be sure it doesn't install Grub there.

23:36:11  <glx> the other way is network install using a boot cd

23:37:50  <TinoDidriksen> Yes it does...
23:37:54  <TinoDidriksen>
23:38:19  <TinoDidriksen> Fewer read errors that way.

23:39:44  <Nat_aS> aren't RW's less reliable though?
23:39:49  <Nat_aS> Can I burn over this?
23:40:12  <TinoDidriksen> RW is fine these days.
23:40:50  <Nat_aS> i hate optical media SO MUCH
23:40:57  <Nat_aS> I want it to die faster
23:41:18  <planetmaker> you have a window?
23:41:26  <planetmaker> throw it out. It then dies quite quickly
23:42:32  <Nat_aS> lol
23:42:38  <Nat_aS> i mean as a medium
23:42:45  <Nat_aS> I want it to be all digital distribution
23:42:59  <Nat_aS> I want to be able to install oSes from the internet as well.
23:43:01  <Eddi|zuHause> we used to use DVD+RW, but the disks got quite unreliable after several dozen overwrites
23:43:40  <Eddi|zuHause> and suddenly the other guy's burned disks were not readable in my computer anymore, but when i burned over them they worked fine
23:43:43  <Eddi|zuHause> so only one-way
23:43:51  <Eddi|zuHause> which made it kinda awkward
23:44:01  <Eddi|zuHause> then we invested in a USB stick :p
23:44:34  <Eddi|zuHause> have never seen a BIOS that couldn't boot off USB though
23:44:43  <TinoDidriksen> You can get 500gb USB3 harddrives that only need USB power for €100 these days...wonderful times.
23:44:47  <Eddi|zuHause> at least if it's newer than 10 years
23:45:25  <Eddi|zuHause> 500GB used to be 50€ a year ago
23:45:49  <TinoDidriksen> Only for the versions that need external power.
