07:06:22  <dihedral> greetings
07:07:32  <dihedral> <michi_cc> [28 Mar 2012 - 01:09:32] Most of the design pattern crowd seems to forget that there's more than just object oriented programming, and obviously OOP is always the best thing in the world (Java, I'm looking at you :) <- each and every language has its use... even erlang, perl, tcl ....
07:12:37  <planetmaker> ..., whitespace, brainfuck, ...
07:13:37  <blathijs> Those languages at least serve the purpose of making discussions like these more interesting ;-p
07:17:51  <planetmaker> :-) quite true
07:18:24  <planetmaker> ++++++++++[>+++++++>++++++++++>+++>+<<<<-]>++.>+.+++++++..+++.>++.<<+++++++++++++++.>.+++.------.--------.>+.>.
07:27:41  <xiong> I might have been interested in this interesting discussion if my connection had not been down and up for the last two weeks.

07:48:28  <dihedral> planetmaker, whitespace has its use: namely when you need to write an exam at school ... on paper! :-D
07:49:24  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: what's 65, 91, 98, 98, 101, 29, 80, 101, 104, 98, 90, 30, 9?
07:49:56  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: I pasted the complete "Hello World" programme there
07:50:40  <planetmaker> or wiki is wrong ;-)
07:51:08  <Eddi|zuHause> it's easily possible i miscalculated :)
07:51:43  <Eddi|zuHause> but 29 and 30 don't seem right
07:52:00  <Eddi|zuHause> not sure what 9 is
07:52:24  <Eddi|zuHause> wouldn't that be tab?
07:53:15  <planetmaker> ascii 0x09 is tab iirc, yes

08:45:21  <Eddi|zuHause> Hello World!
08:45:55  <Eddi|zuHause> beware: my loop implementation may be buggy
08:47:37  <CornishPasty> What's your look like Eddi|zuHause ?
08:47:38  <Eddi|zuHause> i need to rethink my handling of while(0)
08:47:53  <Eddi|zuHause> CornishPasty: from the wiki page. or what planetmaker posted above
08:48:20  *** Markavian [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:48:31  <CornishPasty> Ah right lol
08:51:38  <Eddi|zuHause> new version with hopefully improved loop behaviour
08:52:53  *** Markavian` [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:54:37  <planetmaker> lol, Eddi|zuHause :-)
08:57:05  * Rhamphoryncus thinks we should have a callback to change cargo ageing and payment.. then finds out they already exist
08:57:28  <Eddi|zuHause> yah, i thought of that first :)
08:57:37  <Rhamphoryncus> :)
08:57:42  <Eddi|zuHause> (but i did not implement it)
08:57:46  <Rhamphoryncus> Has anybody played with it yet?
08:58:27  <Eddi|zuHause> not really. it's only few months old, no released newgrf uses it yet, afaik
08:58:33  <Rhamphoryncus> ahh alright
08:58:43  * Rhamphoryncus sees FIRS hacks in his future
08:59:22  <Eddi|zuHause> variable cargo aging is a vehicle set feature, not an industry set feature
08:59:32  <Rhamphoryncus> .. what?
08:59:43  <Rhamphoryncus> Oh, it's for boats and such?
08:59:55  <Eddi|zuHause> for example
09:00:03  <planetmaker> not quite true. OpenGFX+ Trains uses it for refrigerator wagons
09:00:16  <Rhamphoryncus> ahh interesting
09:04:28  <Rhamphoryncus> Well, the only reason I was considering cargo ageing was to extend the time I have to work with, but it's minor
09:04:32  <Eddi|zuHause> reuploaded. now with license.

09:22:04  *** CQ_ is now known as CQ
09:22:18  <CQ> is there a way to get signals for both directions on one square?
09:22:38  <Nat_aS> ???
09:22:41  <Nat_aS> like you mean normal signals?
09:22:47  <Nat_aS> or path signals?
09:23:50  <Eddi|zuHause> CQ: you never ever want such a signal combination
09:26:07  <CQ> i have a circular track, and am thinknig about having trains go both ways on it...
09:33:38  <planetmaker> I suggest you simply read up on the signal types
09:36:05  *** zooks_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:36:44  <CQ> planetmaker: I have, twice, and I still dont get it completely.
09:37:01  <CQ> the signals always show if a path to the next stopping point is clear
09:37:11  <CQ> at least the ones I'm using
09:37:50  <planetmaker> do they?
09:38:05  <planetmaker> I think they show whether the next block is clear or they show red
09:39:30  <CQ> I thought block was stopping point, i.e. a signal or a station
09:39:42  <Eddi|zuHause> CQ: so when you have two signals on the same tile, you will have trains waiting on both sides until the other side clears, which will never happen, because there are no switches inbetween
09:44:19  <CQ> Eddi|zuHause: true... guess I need to rethink the design a little then,,,

10:13:33  *** ffpp [] has joined #openttd
10:15:10  <ffpp> hi, I need some advice:  I have a data structure (GuiList) which contains const pointers. At some point I want to retrieve one of those and need to use and change the pointed-to-obj. So I did a cast to a non-const pointer of the same obj type (\n)
10:16:17  <ffpp> ... I just make a pastebin
10:21:28  <ffpp> paste:
10:22:06  <ffpp> question: isn't this stupid as I modify the same object in both cases anyway ? Only the way to retrieve it has changed and this just tricks out the compiler warning
10:27:18  *** smoovi [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:32:16  <Rhamphoryncus> Well, you shouldn't be casting away const, so..
10:32:56  <ffpp> so what ? both ways are stupid ?
10:33:20  <Rhamphoryncus> The second is slightly better, if uglier
10:34:23  <Rhamphoryncus> "I never modify it, except in this one particular case.." is a deep problem with the const model
10:35:49  <Rhamphoryncus> Off hand.. if you're storing a pointer it probably shouldn't be const.  const works best for transient uses, ie you pass it to a function that doesn't modify it
10:36:27  *** smoovi [] has joined #openttd
10:36:28  <ffpp> in general it shouldn't be a semantic problem to modify templatevehicles, but in this one case I need to retrieve the tv to modify by looking at the selected index, so the 2nd way is just cleaner to retrieve it
10:37:36  <ffpp> the general usage of openttd seems to be to store const pointers into the GuiList templates, thats why I went with it in the first place
10:38:24  * Rhamphoryncus nods
10:38:44  <Rhamphoryncus> I can't speak for openttd's style choices.  I wasn't there when they happened :)
10:39:46  <ffpp> Why not, rhamphoryncus sounds like a create which existed a long time ago :)
10:40:48  <Rhamphoryncus> Well yes, but there was that pesky extinction in the middle while all the interesting stuff happened
10:41:15  <ffpp> how come you're helping out right now, then ? jurassic park ?
10:41:56  <Rhamphoryncus> Good question
10:42:37  <planetmaker> capability to fly helps with escapes ;-)
10:43:20  <ffpp> I once knew all the queer dinosaur names - profession of choice then: 'dinosaur expert'. good times :)
10:44:06  <ffpp> thanks btw, I'm going with the 2nd way then, seems to be feasible
10:44:32  <Rhamphoryncus> huh, there's a usage of "queer" you don't hear much these days
10:44:53  <peter1138> how queer
10:45:10  * peter1138 is also happy & gay
10:45:40  <ffpp> I thought it means strange or something along that line, not gay
10:46:13  <peter1138> both words with multiple meanings, these days
10:47:51  * V453000 is also beer
10:48:14  <Rhamphoryncus> ffpp: that's the original meaning
10:49:32  <ffpp> and it is at the top of the list in the dictionary
10:50:13  <Rhamphoryncus> Yeah, but dictionaries don't reflect common usage ;)
10:50:47  <Rhamphoryncus> The derogatory form became the dominant one, then more recently it's been reclaimed by the gay community
10:51:43  <ffpp> in all english speaking countries or only GB or the US ?
10:54:39  <Rhamphoryncus> I'm canadian so I'd say north america.  I can't speak for GB
10:55:18  <Rhamphoryncus> I'm pretty sure there's some of it there too, but I don't know how much
10:56:18  <ffpp> hm, I actually learned the word on a north american sports forum, didn't seem like it was used with the gay meaning, maybe I got it wrong
10:58:25  *** Twofish [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
10:59:07  <Rhamphoryncus> Unless there's a significant presence from the gay community I'd be surprised if it wasn't derogatory
11:01:55  <ffpp> especially in sports talks
11:02:57  <Rhamphoryncus> yeah
11:05:40  <Eddi|zuHause> <-- i think my loop handling is finally correct now
11:08:04  * Rhamphoryncus goes to look, then realizes the file name and decides not
11:13:17  <Rhamphoryncus> although.. if notch can embed a language in his next game.. if I make a game I should embed brainfuck in it.  Just to fuck with peoples' brains :)
11:15:58  <ffpp> use it as ai-scripting language
11:16:01  *** valhallasw [~valhallas@] has joined #openttd
11:16:27  <CornishPasty> How would that... I don't even
11:16:36  <CornishPasty> We need a language that can compile down to bf
11:21:06  <Rhamphoryncus> I figure that would happen eventually
11:28:58  *** cl8 [] has joined #openttd
11:35:45  <CQ> how do you get rid of an appaling rating in a town without bribing? I have one station there and can't build anything...
11:40:10  <ffpp> plant lots of trees
11:40:42  <ffpp> or deliver into or out of that town
11:42:08  <planetmaker> or just wait
11:42:36  <CQ> I can't deliver since I have no stations there
11:43:20  <planetmaker> wait or plant trees. Only the firs tree planted on a tile counts.
11:43:37  <planetmaker> As you can't get worse, it might help to kill more trees in advance to this endeavour
11:43:50  *** cl8 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:44:03  <planetmaker> but only tiles 15 tiles away from town centre count
11:44:18  <planetmaker> thus doens't work for large cities
11:45:37  <CQ> ok, thanks ... does it make sense for vehicles to have the hangar / dock / depot in their route, or do they go automaticaly if servicing is needed?
11:45:55  <Eddi|zuHause> yes and yes
11:46:25  <Eddi|zuHause> if you put the depot in the orders, they will never try to go to a different depot
11:46:38  <Eddi|zuHause> which may help with trains getting lost
11:46:38  <ffpp> especially for trains, which can't just change direction at will it makes sense to have a depot along every (long) route
11:47:10  <Eddi|zuHause> also, you may force the depot visit while the trains are empty then
11:47:25  <Eddi|zuHause> so the cargo is delivered as fast as possible

16:05:25  <Pikka> andy: I'm considering a production feedback mechanism for mines
16:05:37  <andythenorth> tell
16:05:39  <Pikka> but probably just using goods rather than a special cargo
16:05:55  <andythenorth> goods covers all sins
16:06:01  <andythenorth> how about 'people' too? :P
16:06:06  <Pikka> I haven't worked out the details yet :)  but I definitely want to replace the standard random production changes mechanism and make it more interesting
16:06:13  <Pikka> interesting for me, anyway
16:06:16  <Pikka> :)
16:08:24  <andythenorth> will it be evil?
16:08:30  <Belugas> evil is good
16:08:40  *** andythenorth is now known as bad_pikka
16:08:55  <Pikka> I don't know
16:09:03  <Pikka> "more predictable" probably isn't evil
16:09:43  <Belugas> evil always gives some spice to life :)
16:09:56  <Pikka> industries suddenly halving production for no apparent reason is "evil", but also default behaviour and annoying
16:11:02  <Pinkbeast> Part of the trouble here seems to be that the demand of every consumer is infinite, which ought to make those stockpiles work better...
16:11:34  <Pikka> part of what trouble?
16:12:14  <planetmaker> welcome to "smooth economy". And also 'hello' :-)
16:12:20  <Pinkbeast> Well, the way vanilla OTTD lets you route all the coal on the map to one power station on the other side of the world.
16:13:41  <bad_pikka> why is that trouble?
16:13:44  <bad_pikka> that is correct behaviour
16:17:06  <bad_pikka> also...YACD has been updated to compile with recent trunk apparently ;)
16:17:46  <jazzyjaffa> Yes :)

16:19:31  <Pikka> hmm
16:20:31  <Pikka> I might do the calcutta and one futuristic plane in this release of av8, just so it balances out the 3-column vehicle list picture
16:20:37  <Pikka> is that OCD?
16:21:02  <Pikka> just the calcutta would do I think
16:21:13  <Pikka> not that anyone will ever use it
16:21:56  *** KouDy1 [~KouDy@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
16:22:10  <Pikka> I've often thought when making vehicle sets that I should just make the 5 biggest/most powerful vehicles and not bother with the rest, since that's all anyone ever uses.
16:27:20  <bad_pikka> not OCD
16:27:21  <bad_pikka> correct
16:27:33  <bad_pikka> you also need to make one small one
16:27:52  <bad_pikka> hmm
16:28:03  <bad_pikka> maybe that's why HEQS is so relatively popular
16:28:15  <bad_pikka> it just adds biggest possible truck for any year
16:28:29  <Pikka> :]
16:28:57  <bad_pikka> I've cut most of the small trucks from BANDIT :P
16:29:01  <Pikka> well, the calcutta is not only very small, but it's a seaplane, so until newairports it's pretty useless.
16:29:12  <bad_pikka> I'm leaving in the massive roadtrains which can be refitted to...smaller :P
16:29:14  <Pikka> yay :P
16:29:38  <Pikka> I can't imagine many people will want to play HQOVS without BANDIT

16:30:53  * bad_pikka has been pondering food industry chain
16:30:56  <V453000> I've often thought when making vehicle sets that I should just make the 5 biggest/most powerful vehicles and not bother with the rest, since that's all anyone ever uses. <- solution to that is to make every vehicle the strongest one in its era ;)
16:31:04  <bad_pikka> oranges -> orange juice :P
16:31:21  <bad_pikka> eggs -> custard
16:31:49  <bad_pikka> blood -> black pudding
16:32:54  *** bad_pikka is now known as andythenorth
16:33:03  <Pikka> blood + white bits -> black pudding
16:34:33  <Pikka> V453000: exactly, that produces much the same result.
16:35:49  <V453000> partially, it gives more vehicles that "everyone uses"
16:35:56  <Pikka> if I left out all the aircraft in av8 which were not bigger than everything that came before, av8 would contain 8 vehicles
16:36:08  <andythenorth> where do 'white bits' come from?
16:36:25  <Pikka> from ripping yarns, andythenorth
16:36:28  <glx> polo
16:36:30  <andythenorth> also 8 vehicles in av8 is pretty nice
16:36:39  <glx> oups wrong chan
16:36:43  <andythenorth> no no
16:36:49  <andythenorth> it made perfect sense in this context
16:37:13  <andythenorth> input: sugar, holes; output: polo mints
16:37:39  <Pikka> HP42, Constellation, Stratocruiser, Brittania, DC8, 747, A380 and JTech, that's "pretty nice"?
16:39:02  <Pikka> but join any multiplayer server running av8 and I guarantee those are the only aircraft you'll see
16:39:15  <Belugas> burp
16:39:24  <V453000> well Pikka you can reduce the power of those 5 or increase the power of the others
16:39:28  <V453000> to get more effectively
16:39:57  <Pinkbeast> ot the most powerful/fast available...
16:40:03  <Pinkbeast> Oh, darn it
16:40:14  * Pinkbeast used the UKRS1 0-6-0, 2-6-4T, 0-8-0 (after the 2-8-0), 4-6-0, Pacific, 2-8-0 (after the 9F), AL6, C321, 5AT all after they were  not the most powerful/fast available.
16:40:37  <Pikka> I'm not really complaining :)  there are plenty of uses for the smaller aircraft
16:40:39  <Pinkbeast> ... but the OTTD mechanics do rather militate against it
16:40:46  <Pikka> it all depends on other grfs used, playstyle, etc
16:40:59  <Pikka> and cargo destinations will make a difference too
16:42:11  <Pinkbeast> Most cargod?st schemes seem to give a role to light trains (for eg FIRS supplies) but ensure every passenger train/plane/RV will always be the hugest available.
16:42:21  <V453000> yes, UKRS has the choices for player done the best way from all train newGRFs at the moment
16:43:14  <jazzyjaffa> Pinkbeast: Isn't that partly due to the massive amount of pax that towns currently generate?
16:43:44  <Pinkbeast> Well, it's not so massive if they only want to go on one trip (in a not-cargod?st world)
16:44:28  <Pinkbeast> Oh, and the A4 even after the Merchant Navy from the addons set because bleh, Bulleid.
16:44:57  <jazzyjaffa> I can see a role for smaller pax services if town pax production/growth is tweaked a bit - maybe some towns shouldn't grow (green belts? :D )
16:46:10  <Pikka> TaI houses limit town growth, and I believe there are also gamescripts if you'd rather do it that way
16:46:48  <jazzyjaffa> I'm doing some profiling of yacd to understand what's happening CPU usage wise. As always with this stuff the problem is that for detailed profiling you have to turn off inlining - but without inlining performance is different.
16:48:35  <Rhamphoryncus> During the money maker phase picking a cheap aircraft can work well.  That only lasts for 3 or 4 aircraft though
16:49:20  <andythenorth> which makes more money, two 25t trucks, or one 50t truck?  Assume total run / purchase cost is same
16:49:34  <andythenorth> also speed, power
16:49:35  <Rhamphoryncus> 25t
16:49:45  <Rhamphoryncus> Shorter period without one loading
16:50:11  <andythenorth> but twice as many breakdowns...?
16:50:22  <Rhamphoryncus> I'm guessing cargo doesn't age while the vehicle is loading, but I haven't verified it
16:50:26  <Rhamphoryncus> What's a breakdown?
16:52:26  <andythenorth> the first 25t delivery will arrive before the first 50t delivery
16:52:36  <andythenorth> so break-even comes sooner
16:52:50  <Pikka> Rhamphoryncus: if the cargo available is so little that a massive plane will spend a month each time waiting to pick up, then the smaller plane is clearly a better option.  but of course, with normal OpenTTD town growth and a 2048* map, the supply of passengers is practically unlimited
16:52:51  <andythenorth> so interest on debt is lower
16:53:27  <Pikka> I only play 256* maps, and with a small number of low-growth towns, my aircraft fleet is mainly 737s and ERJs.
16:53:40  <Rhamphoryncus> Shorter period without loading -> higher station rating -> higher volume -> more money
16:53:45  <michi_cc> jazzyjaffa:
16:54:03  <jazzyjaffa> michi_cc: Yeah I saw that, thats with inlining on right?
16:54:08  <Rhamphoryncus> But if you mean 20 25t trucks vs 10 50t trucks then it's insignificant
16:54:38  *** Chris_Booth [] has joined #openttd
16:54:59  <jazzyjaffa> michi_cc: BTW, nice patch, really easy to understand what is going on.
16:55:06  <Rhamphoryncus> Pikka: I mean literally the first 3 or 4 aircraft built in a game.  After that you might as well switch to the 747 or whatever's best at the time
16:55:16  <michi_cc> I'm not totally sure, but I think yes. I also had one with inline disabled just in the Yapf part of YACD, but I think the image isn't from that.
16:55:21  <andythenorth> is 10 50t trucks vs 1 500t truck significant?
16:55:33  <Pikka> Rhamphoryncus: why, if your airports aren't producing enough passengers to fill a 747?
16:55:51  *** supermop [] has quit [Quit: supermop]
16:56:01  <Pikka> but I realise the way most people play openttd, supply of passengers is not an issue
16:56:04  <Rhamphoryncus> a single truck is going to leave the station without anything loading
16:56:16  <Rhamphoryncus> Pikka: well, maybe if you're focusing on pax the entire game
16:56:40  <Rhamphoryncus> I usually focus on trains and throw in planes/boats/trucks just for flavour
16:57:10  * andythenorth is fooling with an argument about continuous (single piece) flow versus largest possible batch size :P
16:57:21  <andythenorth> unless you're a production geek, it might not be interesting :P
16:57:51  <Pinkbeast> Rhamp: Well, there isn't much you can move with aircraft besides pax. Not nothing, but not a lot.
16:57:58  <jazzyjaffa> michi_cc: My main thought is that the penalties due to waiting cargo are making the pf explore more of the network than is desirable. (although they are a needed part of the algorithm to make it work well)
16:58:18  <Pikka> Pinkbeast: except anything
16:58:23  <Pikka> especially with refitting orders
16:58:35  <Rhamphoryncus> Pinkbeast: I've largely avoided pax lately, other than token efforts to pacify towns.  Still haven't tried YACD
16:59:13  <Pikka> I found in my latest test games that the B1900 is a very good for valuables connections
16:59:21  <andythenorth> YACD rocks.  It also eats battery, and has some unfortunate edge cases :D
17:00:00  <Pikka> TaI towns also produce a lot of mail, so I find flying goods in and mail out quite profitable
17:00:12  <michi_cc> Many things make the PF slow, but ultimately A* is simply not the best algorithm for packet routing.
17:00:21  <andythenorth> Pikka: refitting :o
17:00:22  <Rhamphoryncus> Pikka: huh, haven't tried that
17:00:37  <andythenorth> Pikka: are you sure you're not DHL?
17:00:55  <Pikka> ja
17:01:13  <Pikka> also, the A400 kicks serious cargo backside
17:01:27  <Pikka> 120 crates / 60t out of small airports at 480mph :)
17:01:43  <jazzyjaffa> michi_cc: Yes, but I see why you started with this approach given the structure of the gameloop
17:02:39  <Rhamphoryncus> Pikka: what other things could be used to give aircraft tradeoffs?  Different cargo specialities?  Flight speed vs airport density (all aircraft take the same space regardless of capacity)?
17:03:22  <andythenorth> it's kind of the same as trucks: not a lot can be done
17:03:25  <Pikka> newairports will make a big difference.  it will be good to have granularity beyond "small" and "large"
17:04:06  <Rhamphoryncus> I've been meaning to use more of the coal trucks
17:04:07  <Pikka> at the moment, there's no airports you can operate a pc12 out of that you can't operate a 737 out of
17:04:10  *** einKarl [] has joined #openttd
17:04:35  <ffpp> "YACD rocks."   <<  how is it compared to CargoDist, performance-wise and other ?
17:05:02  <andythenorth> plane/airport situation is somewhat equivalent to truck/roadtypes situation
17:05:09  <Rhamphoryncus> Pikka: and the ability to scale up the airport.  Sufficient runways and you can pick flight speed over cargo capacity
17:05:53  <Pikka> well, unlikely
17:06:43  <Pikka> "speed vs capacity" isn't a thing in the real world any more than the "range vs capacity" that some people suggested
17:06:52  <Terkhen> ffpp: performance-wise I don't know; cargodist is updated and it uses distribution, YACD is outdated and uses destinations
17:07:00  <Pikka> the biggest aircraft tend to be the fastest anyway, just like the biggest aircraft tend to have the longest range
17:07:05  <Rhamphoryncus> Who cares about the real world?  I want a fun game :P
17:07:31  <Pikka> well, if you want to create a "fun" grf with illogical stats, no-one's stopping you.
17:08:05  <Rhamphoryncus> So what's the real tradeoff?  Cost, obviously, and having enough volume to justify the size?
17:08:23  <Pikka> volume and airport capabilities
17:08:26  <Chris_Booth> Rhamphoryncus: or just go nuts! make everything super small
17:08:41  <andythenorth> and noise
17:08:47  <andythenorth> runway length
17:08:54  <Rhamphoryncus> Chris_Booth: flying hover bus? :D
17:09:04  <Pikka> those both fall under "airport capabilites", andy :P
17:09:16  <andythenorth> watching a 747 land on the airport in mauritius is interesting
17:09:28  <andythenorth> it's pretty much 747 minimum length afaict
17:09:35  <andythenorth> and relatively rolling
17:09:43  <Rhamphoryncus> If you could expand an airport piecemeal then there wouldn't be such a strong push to upgrade to the biggest airport ASAP
17:09:47  <andythenorth> you see the wings bounce a lot :P
17:10:27  <Pikka> the way to combat the "push to upgrade" is to make the upgrade, usually, unneccessary, Rhamphoryncus
17:10:35  <Pikka> which again comes down to town growth and map size
17:11:04  <andythenorth> iirc, railroad tycoon pax would pay a premium for travelling in cool vehicles, e.g. streamlined etc
17:11:20  <andythenorth> ottd has a very bad proxy for this in the 'vehicle age' station rating factor
17:11:49  <Pikka> you can also adjust the cargo decay factor on the vehicles now, andy
17:12:07  <andythenorth> also my thought :)
17:12:20  <Rhamphoryncus> Upgrading is a pain.  Level the area, bulldoze town buildings that encroached (hope there's no industries), check that the town isn't so pissed that you can't rebuild, modify all the orders temporarily so they skip this station, wait for it to clear, bulldoze, rebuild, restore orders
17:13:06  <Rhamphoryncus> If you wait until it's needed, rather than when it's first available, it becomes that much harder
17:13:33  <Pikka> my point is it should never be needed, Rhamphoryncus
17:13:37  <Rhamphoryncus> Although the game I just played had "towns build roads" turned off, which was surprisingly nice
17:14:17  <Rhamphoryncus> Pikka: So no growth?
17:14:37  <Pikka> plenty of growth
17:15:16  * andythenorth has considered patching so that the biggest airport is available at game start
17:15:20  <andythenorth> solves the problem :P
17:15:27  <Pikka> plenty of growth in the UK IRL, but you don't have a Heathrow in every Chipping Sodbury
17:15:39  <Pikka> patch, andy?  GRF
17:16:04  <CornishPasty> Sodding Chipbury :P
17:16:09  <andythenorth> Pikka: have you been to Chipping Sodbury?  Pretty much like Heathrow
17:16:10  <Rhamphoryncus> And real life has more than 8 aircraft
17:16:11  <Pikka> there too
17:16:33  <Pikka> so does av8, Rhamphoryncus

17:21:55  <ffpp> Terkhen: I know the difference in their main ideas, but I never read anywhere how much of difference it makes gameplay-wise when the destinations demand transport rather than you initiating everything
17:22:09  <andythenorth> all the difference
17:22:15  <Terkhen> for that you'll need to test it :)
17:22:16  <andythenorth> it's significantly much better on average
17:22:32  <ffpp> ahh, I knew it ;)
17:23:24  <andythenorth> hmm
17:23:32  <andythenorth> maybe I should rethink my truck classes

17:24:23  <andythenorth> and also I'm trying to reflect real life model variation
17:24:31  <Pikka> eep
17:24:38  *** MeanEYE [~meaneye@] has quit []
17:24:43  <andythenorth> I could just simplify to: line-haul (big) and local (small)
17:24:46  *** frosch123 [] has joined #openttd
17:25:16  <andythenorth> it does seem to be what the game needs: big and small
17:28:10  <andythenorth> but also, because of drive-in stops, I have to duplicate a lot of sizes
17:29:08  <andythenorth> I want BANDIT to offer articulated trucks, with variable number of trailers, because that interests me
17:29:09  <Pikka> eh
17:29:13  <Pikka> yes
17:29:21  <andythenorth> but I also have to provide non-trailer trucks in a wide range of sizes

17:29:28  <Pikka> I don't see why
17:29:36  <andythenorth> 'have' is a removable word
17:29:37  <Pikka> if people want "big", they have to go artic
17:30:00  <andythenorth> or I put down BANDIT, and figure out rv-wagons
17:30:04  <andythenorth> but I tried that once :(
17:30:22  * andythenorth predicts further truck removal from BANDIT
17:30:39  <Pikka>

17:30:51  <andythenorth> indeed
17:31:03  <andythenorth> every home should have one

17:34:18  <andythenorth> seems also my CGI artist didn't know about dimetric, which is why lots of FISH ships just look wrong
17:34:42  <andythenorth> but I'm not redrawing them again :P

17:37:06  <andythenorth> btw, fancy 'upgrading' your Puffer to look like FISH style?
17:37:18  <Pikka> how so?  the FISH ships look okay to me...
17:37:24  <Pikka> hmm possibly, what does it need?
17:37:31  <Pikka> less black hull?
17:37:35  <andythenorth> I tried putting it in, but scale and style don't really quite fit
17:37:38  <andythenorth> hard to say more
17:37:56  <andythenorth> I can't really explain FISH style, all I can say is DanMacK nailed it first time when he contributed :P
17:38:01  <andythenorth> he's a good one that one
17:38:08  <Pikka> well, I guess if the lighting is rendered differently, it might be hard to make it match

17:38:23  <Pikka> +drawn over, of course
17:38:52  <Pikka> I never really cleaned up the puffer properly, I rendered it then lost interest
17:39:05  <andythenorth> FISH is drawn over a lot, or from scratch

17:46:01  <Pikka> hmm :)
17:46:06  <andythenorth> if someone prodded me (i.e. with sprites), I could get FISH to 1.0.0, e.g. models change over time, and cargo support
17:46:17  <Pikka> and pre-1870? ;)
17:46:20  <andythenorth> meh
17:46:21  <andythenorth> sails :P
17:46:27  <andythenorth> although...
17:46:58  <andythenorth> I had the idea to use one set of sails repeatedly
17:47:00  <andythenorth> anyway - bathtime
17:47:05  <Pikka> k
17:47:14  <Pikka> sails are definitely a render job I reckon :)
17:47:21  <ffpp> is it normal that I cannot click towns anymore with yacd ?
17:47:38  <ffpp> the description at least says 'click town to see where cargo wants to go'
17:49:38  <ffpp> and the town's names aren't displayed either
17:49:46  <jazzyjaffa> ffpp: In the town view or station view?
17:50:03  <ffpp> in the main view
17:50:32  <Pikka> "town names displayed" in the option menu? D;
17:52:27  <ffpp> Pikka, you mean the Town Names option in the game options ? its set to english, nothing else available though
17:52:48  <jazzyjaffa> ffpp: YACD doesn't touch the code for displaying town names in the main view.
17:53:01  <ffpp> strange
17:53:20  <jazzyjaffa> ffpp: Click the cog - 'Town names displayed' should have a checkmark
17:54:52  <ffpp> jazzyjaffa, thanks

18:41:52  <Pikka> andy: I shouldn't think the wind direction will make much of a difference
18:42:31  <Pikka> your ships will be of a size that they're mainly square rigged, you can't change the speed based on direction, and if we change the sail loading by direction people will just think it's a bug
18:43:30  <Pinkbeast> Speed based on direction would be lovely, though (but even if it could be done in a grf, the pathfinder would have to be aware, etc...)
18:45:26  <andythenorth> you can change the speed based on angle of rotation...
18:45:33  <andythenorth> it's an 80+ var, I looked into it ;)
18:45:44  <andythenorth> but it might be crappy
18:45:48  <Pikka> yes, but you can't
18:45:58  <andythenorth> oh
18:46:07  <Pikka> the speed is cached, it will only be updated when the vehicle leaves the depot I'm guessing

19:28:57  <Rhamphoryncus> Although I should qualify that and say I mostly just use the platforms and blank tiles.  The misc buildings rarely get use
19:28:58  <andythenorth> not a big update, more of a nibble
19:31:50  <Rhamphoryncus> But for such simple things the platforms have a surprising amount of interest

20:12:45  * andythenorth makes money on the internet
20:13:18  <Eddi|zuHause> tx: only the pause button
20:13:34  <andythenorth> having customers who pay for stuff is the magic secret
20:13:41  <Eddi|zuHause> (or the F1 key, respectively)
20:13:44  <andythenorth> to get that you make stuff people want
20:14:12  <andythenorth> having a price helps
20:14:26  <andythenorth> you know...capitalism and crap
20:14:35  <tx> Eddi|zuHause: that's fine for local, but on a dedicated server, it runs with around 100years/day that's way to fast
20:14:49  <Eddi|zuHause> you're right. don't give people what they need. only give them what they want.
20:14:53  <Pinkbeast> Ah, you want a daylength multiplier patch, tx
20:15:17  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: I actually learnt that the hard way :P
20:15:32  <andythenorth> but you can subtract 'only'
20:15:33  <Prof_Frink> Eddi|zuHause: No, don't give them what they want, give them what they ask for.
20:15:44  <tx> Pinkbeast: If it can slow down this thing yes :)
20:16:01  <Eddi|zuHause> Prof_Frink: that's for the really advanced people :)
20:16:05  <andythenorth> that's nice on day rates, with time and materials :P
20:16:10  <andythenorth> I wouldn't recommend it for products
20:16:21  <andythenorth> or fixed fee contracting
20:17:00  <tx> Pinkbeast: will it be needed on every client or is the server enough?
20:17:24  <Pinkbeast> I don't know, I'm afraid.
20:17:57  <andythenorth> if you get paid on whether the thing actually works, then you actually do give the customer what they need
20:19:38  <Prof_Frink> Thankfully we get paid on whether we've shown the thing *should* work.
20:20:43  <planetmaker> tx: a dedixated server runs the same speed as other openttd. except fast-forward (single player only) and pausing there's no speed setting anywhere
20:20:47  <andythenorth> how interesting
20:21:13  <andythenorth> do you poke it with a sharp stick and say "she'll probably do" ?
20:21:31  <tx> planetmaker: so independent of hardware two clients always have the same speed?
20:21:35  <planetmaker> yes
20:21:47  <planetmaker> unless hardware is too slow to maintain the fixed speed
20:22:06  <Pinkbeast> Errr surely tx is asking about daylength not ticks-per-real-second
20:22:12  <planetmaker> yes, he is
20:22:19  *** DDR [] has joined #openttd
20:22:23  <planetmaker> most probably. And I'm saying: err_no_such_setting
20:23:30  <tx> planetmaker, Pinkbeast thx for the answer then maybe i have to use another way like pausing after the last client disconnects
20:23:30  <Pinkbeast> Surely one can run a dedicated server with a daylength patch on it?
20:23:51  <planetmaker> tx: learn to use min_active_client
20:24:21  <planetmaker> Pinkbeast: surely that's not possible unless you patch it and give the same patch to all clients
20:24:35  <Nat_aS> changing daylenght wont change the speed things move right?
20:24:43  <planetmaker> that depends
20:24:43  <Nat_aS> just the date and prices?
20:24:48  <planetmaker> that depends
20:24:49  <tx> planetmaker: yeah that was what i'm going to use thanks
20:25:04  <Pinkbeast> planetmaker: Well, yes. But that is not impossible. And it would be one approach to tx's problem.
20:25:07  <Nat_aS> because I think the date progresses too fast but trains go too slowly
20:25:25  <Prof_Frink> andythenorth: No, we carefully avoid making anything and just play with computers.
20:25:27  <tx> i hoped for a way to slow down days without modifying the clients
20:25:32  <planetmaker> Pinkbeast: quite inconvenient, if you want to setup a server though.
