07:44:33  <CQ> is there any way to get buses to run automatically? once the cities get bigger I don't want to bother reconfiguring each route... I'd rather jsut add buses and stations and let them run

07:50:31  <planetmaker> There's no automatisation for re-configuring routes.
07:50:45  <planetmaker> you're the transport manager after all. You decide how and when and where to expand
07:50:53  <CQ> I was hoping one of the AIs would do something like that
07:50:54  <planetmaker> A "play me" button won't be added to the game
07:51:24  <planetmaker> AIs are competition. Not co-worker
07:51:28  <CQ> no, obviously, but I was thinking alongthe lines of something that when the game gets huge you  move from route and vehicle mgmt to fleet management
07:51:52  <planetmaker> you know shared orders?
07:53:22  <CQ> ah, no, hadn't seent hat yet.
07:53:34  <planetmaker> there you got your fleet management
07:54:03  <planetmaker> use it as soon as two vehicles drive the same route :-)
07:54:22  <CQ> also, I tried to upgrade fromelectric to maglev, and it would be very nice if the trains in the depots could be auto-converted along with the depot... otherwise its a TON of work (unless I'm missing something else... :)
07:56:35  <Eddi|zuHause> <oskari89> Eddi|zuHause: Were you using some kind of railset with different type of rails here <- that is an older version of nutracks
07:56:48  <oskari89> Okay, thanks for information..
07:57:22  <CQ> even with the TIps listed here its still a lot of work to put 20 trains back together...

09:34:46  <Eddi|zuHause> so... what's wrong when i can't reach a website from home, but can reach it from university?
09:35:12  <SpComb> routing
09:35:36  <Eddi|zuHause> and all other websites (so far) work as well
09:36:34  <__ln__> i bet you didn't try *all* others
09:36:45  *** ffpp [] has joined #openttd
09:37:16  <ffpp> quick gameplay question: I a train has multiple engines, does that increase the change for a breakdown or does only the primary engine count ?
09:40:03  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: i did try all others that i tried.
09:41:30  <ffpp> change=chance
09:42:08  <__ln__> it could also be because your isp is not paying $$$ to the isp of the website you are trying to reach.
09:42:28  <__ln__> i don't think that's common but has actually happened.
09:44:30  <Eddi|zuHause> ffpp: i believe only the primary engine counts
09:49:00  <ffpp> ok, because that might actually make a difference sometimes
09:49:28  <Eddi|zuHause> ffpp: there's an improved breakdown patch, but i never tested it
09:50:09  <ffpp> yes, it sounds quite interesting but I believe its not up with the current revisions IIRC

10:49:25  <ffpp> hm, does anybody else think it would be useful to have a 'wait until [50%,75%] load' order ?
10:50:20  <Eddi|zuHause> i once thought of a solution for that: there are already conditional orders, the only thing it needs is to evaluate the next order before leaving the station, and staying if it is the same
10:50:33  <lugo> there was a patch for that
10:51:46  <Eddi|zuHause> so the order list looks like "1: goto A, 2: if load < 50% jump to 1, 3: goto B"
10:52:28  <Eddi|zuHause> currently the vehicle would leave the station and come back
10:52:38  <Eddi|zuHause> and this should be suppressed
10:53:25  <lugo>
10:53:25  <ffpp> the question is, do you want to tie this condition to a specific value like 50% or have it be just 'non-empty cargo'
10:54:26  <ffpp> yes, looks like what Eddi described, and it is not even *that* old
10:57:08  <Eddi|zuHause> ffpp: there are already lots of conditional orders. no need to "tie" anything
10:58:53  <Eddi|zuHause> you don't need conditional orders at all, could also be like "1: goto A (no loading) wait for 10 days, 2: goto A (loading), 3: goto B (no loading) wait for 10 days, 4: goto B (loading)
10:59:14  <Eddi|zuHause> to avoid cargo getting old while you schedule buffer times
11:00:29  <ffpp> ah ok, I just tried it, I never used conditional orders before

11:21:18  <ffpp> I wanted to say that the patch didn't work put I accidently applied it to my dev-directory, not my playing-directory

12:47:21  <oskari892> Hmm:
12:49:32  <planetmaker> so the question is whether you have ECS 1.2 :-)

12:52:52  <planetmaker> but dunno

13:53:13  <__ln__> what to do when you accidentally park your vehicle at the bottom of the sea:
13:55:06  <Eddi|zuHause> is that broken into the ice?

15:19:09  <oskari892> Is there some tracking table on 2cc trainset?

15:46:38  <andythenorth> when I use GPL sprites from another set I don't also ensure I get the sources
15:46:47  <andythenorth> GPL violation :P
15:47:38  <V453000> you mean like if you just copied them from the game but not from the psd/whatever other src file?
15:48:08  <andythenorth> yes
15:48:12  <andythenorth> or from decompiled grf
15:48:15  <oskari892>

15:50:53  <oskari892> Where you can find the sources for those (stupid question)

16:27:08  <andythenorth> doesn't that require custom bridgeheads or something?
16:27:21  <andythenorth> it's primarily just a graphical issue though?
16:27:48  <andythenorth> the blocker is a suitable set of portal graphics?

16:34:23  <FlyingFoX> hi, which distances are counted, when the price for cargo is calculated? Only the distance from the station where the cargo is first picked up to where it is delivered or does the distance get counted over all stations in between where the cargo is only transfered?
16:34:33  <FlyingFoX> I tried to find that on the wiki
16:34:48  <FlyingFoX> but couldn't figure it out
16:35:12  <Pulec> does distance from a loading station have a difference?
16:36:12  <andythenorth> isn't it manhattan distance between first and last stations?

21:52:48  <GT> cause ez 32bpp zoom in trunk really is a great feature, we all should cherish
21:53:19  <GT> Well, maybe not all, but certainly the group that liked the Ez-patch
21:57:46  <GT> I think the anger is gone (justified or not), at least for me. So we have to deal with the new situation, convert tars to grfs.
21:58:19  *** xiong [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:07:04  <GT> But that leads to new conflict immediately, about the format of  the extra zoom ground sprites.

22:12:33  *** Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:14:52  <GT> Devs seem to think: what is the problem, you are lazy, just convert to the new format of grf's, we'll even provide a script for you, so why don't ya start, bunch of whiners. And the artists are concerned about graphics quality, and think: I am not going to mutilate my sprites to these jagged edges. Discussion continues, devs are annoyed and call artists lazy, or propose to remove ez completely.  What a waste of energy, the only problem is the lack of c
22:15:13  <V453000> idk, I dont quite understand why would there be some conflict :) I draw in 8bpp without any extra zoom or extra rotations, and I am just happy. On the other hand I think it will look amazing when a 32bpp ez and eventually extra rotations full set is complete
22:17:27  <V453000> or are there any actual _requirements_ on artists? I dont think there are, artists can just choose from more options now
22:17:33  <GT> Sure, it will look amazing, or not, depends on your personal taste. I really think that when devs and artists would start to cooperate, amazing things would be possible.
22:18:19  <V453000> well they kind of do? Devs provide possibilities, people use them. 32bpp is in every developed set now I heard
22:18:27  <V453000> dont know about ez
22:18:49  <V453000> I think that is a good cooperation already
22:20:50  *** FLHerne [] has left #openttd []
22:21:36  <GT> No, I don't think so. There really are a lot of sprites available for EZ, but they will not be accepted for OGFX.  That may have good reasons, but artists have  worries about the graphics quality, and devs don't really respond to the worries, just keep repeating: this is the format we can offer, stick to it, ignoring the worries of the artists
22:22:21  <V453000> well, start a new base set?
22:22:39  <V453000> base set is just a big newGRF if you take it simply
22:22:56  <V453000> ofc OpenGFX is a bit more linked to OpenTTD, but still
22:23:01  <V453000> nobody prevents you from starting your own
22:24:06  *** xiong [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:25:56  <GT> Of course that would be possible. But in my opinion the best situation would be to cooperate on the best possible set for OTTD, not fight each other. Devs and artists should complement, not fight.

22:26:20  *** Wolf01 [] has quit [Quit: Once again the world is quick to bury me.]
22:27:42  <V453000> that is like if I came to some train set author and told him I want my sprites in his set, even though the sprites are inappropriate for that set
22:27:50  <V453000> he will reject them as well of course
22:27:54  <V453000> if isnt just accept anything
22:28:04  <michi_cc> OpenGFX puts the principles of "do not glitch" and "compatibility with existing content" very high. This together with technical limitations that can't be changed by just modifying a few code lines leads to some restrictions.
22:28:13  <V453000> so well, if you feel like you have a different idea and want to do something else, make your own stuff

22:29:19  <V453000> restrictions, sure, but still, OpenGFX has some style in which it is drawn. I personally do not like it, so if I wanted to improve it, I would probably start a different project instead. Nothing about fighting, just adding another content

22:30:11  <V453000> just because bringing a different style in it would be disruptive
22:34:58  <GT> @michi_cc: and of course you are right about the glitches, and I completely agree: there should not be glitches in trunk graphics. But there are several ways to solve that problem, and every  proposition seems to be completely ignored. I proposed to allow a limited overlap of sprites, to the extend of the jaggedness of the upscaled  sprites. I think you would agree that would solve the problem too, without having to change the code?
22:39:35  <michi_cc> GT: OpenTTD redraws only what changed and not the whole screen (as that would be too slow), so you do not know which of the overlapping sprites will be on top and which at the bottom.
