00:31:54  <Rhamphoryncus> PierreW: "two-way" path signals
00:33:12  <Rhamphoryncus> A train can only wait (stop) from one direction, but they can go through from the other direction if necessary
00:34:12  <Rhamphoryncus> Note though that the 3-track layout doesn't work very well

01:42:19  <Skau1> took me 30 minutes just to get the trains loose again..
01:47:10  <Rhamphoryncus> Was it a single point deadlocked which caused the backlog?  Or were there multiple?

02:00:23  <Skau1> my  system cant handle that many trains
02:00:26  <Skau1> so everything just stopped
02:00:29  <Skau1> :P
02:01:11  <Skau1> i need to rebuild my main station i guess
02:01:30  <Skau1> if i can untangle this shit again
02:01:42  <Skau1> before im bankrupt
02:01:46  *** HerzogDeXtEr [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:03:50  <Rhamphoryncus> A good stopgap is to pick a spot waiting to enter a station, build a depot, then tell some of the trains to go to the depot
02:05:41  <Rhamphoryncus> For station design, if it's a secondary that's deadlock that means all the "full load" trains arrived at once, filling the platforms and then blocking the station entrance, preventing any of the trains that feed that industry from dropping off
02:07:32  <Rhamphoryncus> That you avoid by having lots of extra space for the full load trains.  Having two distinct stations with different lines in can work, or using a WP so they approach from a different way and can't access every platform (and thus completely block it).  Note that in both cases the line in is serving as a waiting bay

02:08:49  <Rhamphoryncus> Overflow depots are sometimes used too, but they have finicky design requirements, otherwise they can be unused, overused (causing the whole line to drop to depot speed), or themselves deadlock
02:10:36  <Skau1> im going to make it simple
02:10:49  <Skau1> dragging a huuuge fucking bomb over my station
02:10:58  <Skau1> then rebuild every single shit in there

02:12:05  <Rhamphoryncus> yes
02:12:14  <Skau1> thats just a big mess.. i was attempting to just fix a few things before i upgraded to maglev
02:12:18  <Rhamphoryncus> ctrl-s for a screenshot
02:12:23  <Skau1> but i must have screwed something up
02:12:31  <Rhamphoryncus> up to you
02:12:33  <Skau1> but either way, i dont think i can fit this many trains on it any way
02:12:43  <Skau1> its messy
02:12:57  <Skau1> i wish i could remove the industries around here
02:13:02  <Skau1> they are just in the way
02:14:49  <Rhamphoryncus> yeah, they can be an issue
02:15:08  <Rhamphoryncus> I often cheat to remove them, but working around them can be half the fun

05:13:14  <Tintinfan> hello
05:13:37  <planetmaker> moin
05:14:20  <Tintinfan> can sombody help :/
05:16:02  <planetmaker> @topic get -3
05:16:02  <DorpsGek> planetmaker: Don't ask to ask, just ask
05:16:28  <Tintinfan> ooops sorry
05:16:47  <Tintinfan> right well I was wondering why dedicated server kept reverting back to 1.2.0-RC4
05:17:04  <Tintinfan> when even after ive gone through and changed .cfg's and all :/
05:17:16  <Tintinfan> (to 1.2.0)
05:17:32  <planetmaker> what does the cfg have to do with the binary version?
05:17:57  <planetmaker> or you mean generally the servers out there?
05:18:00  <Tintinfan> im not sure, but there was a version thingy in there.
05:18:18  <Tintinfan> no, my own server.
05:19:11  <planetmaker> sorry, but that sounds to me like "why does firefox start when I switched to chrome" to me
05:19:34  <Rubidium> that version is there for debug purposes; we often get/ask for configuration files in bug reports and the bug reporters aren't as concise/correct about the version they use, so we added it to the configuration file (which always overwrites the version)
05:19:35  <planetmaker> my answer would be "you start the wrong programme".
05:19:51  <planetmaker> oh :-)
05:20:06  <planetmaker> I didn't remember the version being there, Rubidium
05:21:51  <planetmaker> in any case, there's no need to adjust the version info in the cfg, Tintinfan
05:22:01  <planetmaker> in fact doing so won't change anything
05:22:06  <Tintinfan> ok.

08:49:38  <krinn> 15 companies max, but are they range only 0-14 ?
08:50:10  <TinoDidriksen> 0-14 inclusive = 15
08:54:40  <Eddi|zuHause> range 0-15 would be 16 companies
08:54:53  <krinn> the question is not how to count :)
08:55:00  <Eddi|zuHause> but we need one for "no owner"
08:55:07  <krinn> but if companyID is store in a bit
08:55:14  <Eddi|zuHause> [and occasionally also for "town owner"]
08:56:54  <krinn> so could a companyID > 15 exist ?
08:57:29  <Eddi|zuHause> i think OWNER_TOWN is 16
08:58:33  * CornishPasty sets his companyid to 16

09:04:38  <CornishPasty> Why does the OpenTTD dedicated server require a graphics set?
09:06:38  *** MNIM [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:06:44  *** Firartix [~artixds@] has joined #openttd
09:08:54  *** cypher [] has joined #openttd
09:12:54  <krinn> CornishPasty, maybe because openttd knows 0 cars, and the graphics set not only gave it the graphics for the cars, but the cars themselves, the objects, with their properties... How about running a game with 0 objects?
09:14:03  <krinn> CornishPasty, because i'm not sure default objects exists anymore
09:14:20  <CornishPasty> What's the point of that though? Why can't there be a graphics set that has no graphics, that's default part of openttd
09:17:08  <krinn> because your client must share the same newgrf, so if your server run a newgrf that define objects without graphics, it will run, but your client will have 0 graphics too, i'm not sure you will have a lot of clients in these conditions
09:18:18  <CornishPasty> Hmm... Kinda stupid
09:18:27  <CornishPasty> I hope it at least doesn't load the graphics in
09:18:39  <CornishPasty> Like sourceds doesn't load textures, only polys
09:20:24  *** Elukka [] has joined #openttd
09:23:41  <Eddi|zuHause> there is no such things as "textures and polys"
09:28:16  <CornishPasty> Eddi|zuHause: There are
09:29:00  <Eddi|zuHause> CornishPasty: this is NOT a 3D game
09:29:21  <CornishPasty> Eddi|zuHause: I was talking about sourceds
09:29:47  <CornishPasty> Or, I suppose it should be called, srcds
09:29:47  <Eddi|zuHause> yes. and the sources know nothing about "textures and polys"
09:30:09  <CornishPasty> Eddi|zuHause:
09:31:12  <Eddi|zuHause> so what are you trying to say?
09:31:22  <TinoDidriksen> Does it matter? OpenTTD graphics aren't exactly heavy. If the server loads them, so what...
09:31:43  <Eddi|zuHause> CornishPasty: making exceptions around all sorts of stuff will make the code slower than just handling the graphics
09:31:43  <CornishPasty> It doesn't really matter from a server perspective, but it's still just wasted effort
09:32:01  <Eddi|zuHause> CornishPasty: only the output of the graphics buffer is skipped
09:32:13  <Eddi|zuHause> CornishPasty: and the libraries are not compiled in
09:32:24  <CornishPasty> Wait, what?
09:32:47  <CornishPasty> How can libraries not be compiled in when it's just a command line flag?
09:32:54  <CornishPasty> Unless it compiles itself at launch?
09:33:17  <Eddi|zuHause> ah, no. in that case, only no window is created
09:34:04  <CornishPasty> So if the DS can render graphics etc, can it render them to a file, say, for a screenshot?
09:34:46  <Eddi|zuHause> yes-ish
09:34:55  <Eddi|zuHause> you have to change the blitter, though
09:35:16  <CornishPasty> Hm?
09:38:17  <Eddi|zuHause> there's a "null" blitter, that really does (almost) nothing, and there's other blitters that handle the sprites internally
09:42:00  *** APTX [] has joined #openttd
09:45:11  *** pugi [] has quit []
09:55:23  <Ammler> opengfx has a "nogfx" branch
09:55:41  <Ammler> but since it does not really matter, we never caredabout it
09:56:13  *** th_gergo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:56:32  *** sla_ro|master [slaco@] has quit [Quit: DANGER is OFFLINE DANGER]
09:58:52  <Ammler> maybe with adding 32bpp to opengfx, it could make sense again to make a nogfx baseset
10:00:08  <peter1138> why?
10:00:25  <Ammler> for having a smaller package
10:01:30  <Ammler> rather than maintain a 8bpp and 32bpp version, imo
10:01:55  <peter1138> iirc all grfs need to contain 8bpp normal zoom sprites
10:02:31  <Ammler> opengfx "nogfx" works
10:03:21  <Ammler> it also kept the gui sprites, so you were still able t use the menu
10:04:36  <peter1138> yeah but i assume you were using the old container format, and just included empty 1x1 or something sprites
10:05:02  <Ammler> I guess so
10:05:11  <Ammler> (long ago) :-)
10:05:42  <Ammler> hmm, s/works/worked/ then
10:07:43  <krinn> but as now all newGRF are record and cannot be change, there's no more a way to have a game running opengfx-nogfx and clients opengfx-gfx newGRF no ?
10:11:39  *** goodger [] has joined #openttd
10:12:45  <peter1138> opengfx is a grf, not a newgrf
10:13:06  <peter1138> basesets can be changed with no ill effect
10:21:39  <Eddi|zuHause> container version 2 is supposed to support both 32bpp and 8bpp versions of the same grf
10:21:42  <krinn> GSSignList and GSSign.GetOwner doesn't make sense, anyone to clear it? If GSSignList return the list of sign create by the GS, then GSSign.GetOwner could only be the GS
10:22:08  <Eddi|zuHause> but i guess changing the action14 is not supported in those cases
10:22:32  <Eddi|zuHause> so e.g. DOS and Windows versions can't be unified
10:23:18  <peter1138> there's no reason for dos/windows versions
10:23:22  <krinn> and if i need to GSCompanyMode to a companyID to read its sign, the GSSign.GetOwner is never use as i could just record the company orwner i have switch too
10:24:35  <krinn> GSSignList: Create a list of signs your company has created <- it would make sense if GSSignList return all tiles create by all companies to need to GSSign.GetOwner func
10:25:50  <Eddi|zuHause> peter1138: maybe if TTDPatch gained container version 2 support :)
10:26:00  <peter1138> lol

11:30:56  <Iviv> I'd like to thank whoever wrote the instructions on compiling openttd through MinGW, they're very well writen
11:38:33  <Iviv> Is there anyone here who knows about compiling with MinGW?
11:38:44  <Iviv> or perhaps about compiling in general
11:38:56  <zxbiohazardzx> what you need to know about it?:P
11:39:09  <Iviv> Including a .patch file
11:39:20  <Iviv> I'm currently going through the instructions here:
11:39:29  <zxbiohazardzx> there is a hint on the forums on how to apply a patch before compiling
11:39:45  <Iviv> Ooh, there is? Where is this hint located?
11:40:05  <zxbiohazardzx>
11:40:23  <Iviv> thanks!
11:40:34  <zxbiohazardzx> commands presented there are mingw afaik so
11:40:44  <Iviv> awesome
11:41:33  *** Kurimus [] has joined #openttd
11:42:43  <Iviv> oh. When compiling liblzo2 apparently my compiler failed the ACC conformance test. Does this matter?
11:43:06  <zxbiohazardzx> not really sure, not that much into it
11:43:16  <Iviv> okie, no worries
11:44:44  <Iviv> Oh. Ran the command again and it passed the test this time
11:45:34  <Iviv> ah well, go figure. Onwards!
11:48:06  <zxbiohazardzx> XD
11:59:10  <Iviv> Do you know about libicu? It says that it handles the natural sorting of lists. What does that actually mean? XD
11:59:49  <Iviv> I don't need the right-to-left scripts, its just that sorting line which has me confused
12:01:34  <CornishPasty> Iviv: natural list sorting, a1, a2, a3, a7, a8, a10. Non-natural a1, a10, a2, a3, a7, a8
12:02:25  <Iviv> Aah, thanks! How often does that come up in OpenTTD? Its not something I've noticed in any lists, though equally I've not ever looked out for it specifically
12:03:11  <Skau1> is there a admincommand that can be used to enable the possibility to remove industries?
12:03:17  <CornishPasty> I think it helps with automatically numbered trains, i.e. Train 1, Train 2, etc.
12:03:25  <CornishPasty> Not entirely sure though
12:03:34  <Iviv> Ah, good point. Better do that then
12:03:55  <krinn> Iviv, a lot as all AI/GS scripts need it too
12:04:29  <Iviv> Thanks, krinn
12:06:29  <Skau1> or any way it can be enabled after a server is started
12:26:08  <Iviv> Me again. Got all the other things downloaded and compiled now, just starting on the openttd part now. I require a certain build, which I've found on the site. However, the development FAQ recommends using Mercurial or Git to download them as its easier to patch
12:29:38  <Iviv> Is it possible to use Mercurial or Git to get a specific older revision, since the patch apparently only works for a certain revision
12:34:20  <CornishPasty> Yes
12:37:32  <Iviv> Awesome. Would I do it through mingw?
12:42:19  <Skau1> should i take that as a no? :P

13:02:32  <zxbiohazardzx> question
13:02:53  <zxbiohazardzx> i have a savegame that uses a newgrf (dutchtramset) and i have that grf (or a different one) in my folder
13:02:58  <zxbiohazardzx> the grfID is exactly the same
13:03:06  <zxbiohazardzx> yet OTTD wont recognise it as the same GRF
13:03:12  <zxbiohazardzx> is the checksum that important?
13:04:06  <zxbiohazardzx> GRF ID in savegame: FBFB0102 MD5: BD9EA816D516F66CBE5C793BEF8DBE54

13:13:04  <zxbiohazardzx> i got the RC1 from banana's
13:13:09  <zxbiohazardzx> its GRFID is the same
13:13:12  <zxbiohazardzx> but MD5 isnt
13:13:35  <zxbiohazardzx> and the game wont detect it as being the same GRF or a "similar/updated version was used" (yellow)

13:23:32  <krinn> google record md5 of file too, so the name+md5 could have answer it maybe

13:24:24  <zxbiohazardzx> quite well played map :)
13:28:55  <Iviv> Hmm, an apparent issue with the mingw32 install guide, assuming I've not some something wrong. It doesn't mention installing lzma, and openttd complains when I ./configure it
13:30:00  <Iviv> Warning: lzma was not detected or disabled
13:30:27  <Iviv> warning: openTTD doesn't require lzma, but it does mean that many features, etc  etc
13:32:00  <lugo> xz = lzma, afaik
13:32:15  <lugo> or is part of..
13:32:25  <Iviv> I thought that might be the case, but I tried installing that again but no change
13:33:01  <lugo> mmh then there is
13:34:48  <lugo> well, "Users of LZMA Utils should move to XZ Utils" ;)
13:37:41  <Iviv> Yeah, its weird since I have xz: wget
13:40:59  <TWerkhoven[l]> afaik theres a configure option allowing you to turn off the lzma dependancy
13:41:09  <TWerkhoven[l]> had to do that when i configured linux sources
13:41:52  <lugo> but the feeeaatures
13:41:55  <Iviv> Also, I don't know if it matters ( I don't think so), but I'm trying to compile a version that was patched in linux. That wouldn't matter, would it?
13:43:13  <Iviv> Me and a friend run a server, we wanted to add in the daylength patch. He compiled the version for the server fine, but he has no idea about compiling for windows, but sent me the patched source code, which I'm trying to compile in mingw
13:46:54  <Iviv> I'll try compiling the 5.0.2 version of xz instead. Do I need to 'uninstall' the 5.0.3 version I currently have?
13:47:34  <lugo> have you tried installing the sole lzma package?
13:47:55  <Iviv> From that page?
13:48:00  <lugo> yup
13:48:26  <Iviv> will give that a go, should I stull use ./configure --enable-static --disable-threads when compiling?
13:48:32  <lugo> can't be bad to have both nstalled i guess
13:48:51  <lugo> ehm no idea ;)

18:18:13  <Markk> Öre is like cents in USD and Euro.
18:18:16  <Skau1> AS is the same as LLC
18:18:35  <Skau1> AksjeSelskap .. Limited Company
18:18:37  <Markk> 100 öre/Þre is 1 krona.
18:18:49  <Markk> Skau1: ah
18:18:59  <frosch123> yeah, in now realize that...
18:19:05  <Markk> :)
18:19:10  <Skau1> we dont have 50 norwegian Þre anymore
18:19:12  <frosch123> maybe it is because everything is more expensive in norway
18:19:18  <Markk> Skau1: Same in Sweden.
18:19:25  <frosch123> i think i never had norwegian öre
18:19:29  <michi_cc> Skau1: Valuables might be what pays the most for a short, fast hop relatively seen, but generally coal makes the most profit because it loses less over time, so it is ideal for cross-map transport.
18:19:30  <Skau1> you still have 10 Kr bills? :P
18:19:33  <frosch123> while i remember having 50 danish öre
18:20:11  <frosch123> currently i only have rouble
18:20:15  <Markk> We removed 50 öre in Sweden in October 2010, and then I moved to Ireland (whom used Euro).
18:20:39  <frosch123> 10 rouble in paper from 1997, and 10 rouble in metal from 2008 :p
18:20:53  <Skau1> Sweden mostly accept Euros too, right?
18:21:23  <Markk> nope
18:22:12  <Markk> Some places, yes, but mostly tourist shops and such.
18:22:23  <Markk> And then you'll get the change in kronor.

20:13:43  <Rienzilla> I just found out how addictive openttd is :-)
20:14:23  <Alberth> it is just  a temporary disease, lasts a decade or so :p
20:14:27  <Rienzilla> hehe
20:14:34  <Rienzilla> I had an issue with station layouts yesterday
20:15:40  <Rienzilla> I have a roro station, which is pretty much entry signal - branch - combo signal - waiting bay - exit signal - platform
20:16:50  <Rienzilla> However, sometimes a train passes the entry signal, but takes a branch with only red combo or exit signals, blocking the entrance to the entire station until the train on the platform in front of it leaves
20:16:55  *** Iviv [] has quit [Quit: ChatZilla [Firefox 11.0/20120313180949]]
20:17:21  <drac_boy> Alberth you're a silly one heh
20:17:29  <supermop> make sure the exit signals are two-way
20:17:46  <Rienzilla> why? The trains leave on the other end of the platform
20:18:08  <drac_boy> Rienzilla thats not the point
20:18:15  <supermop> the train pathfinder sees them differently
20:18:43  <Rienzilla> so the entry signals one way, and the exit signal 2-way?
20:18:46  <supermop> with two way signals, the train prefers whichever is green
20:18:53  <drac_boy> 2-way means train would wait the signal before junction if they can .. 1-way means they "think" noone else would use the junction and plow up to the exit signal even if it wasn't meant to be
20:19:00  <supermop> with one way, it prefers the shortest route path
20:19:00  <drac_boy> not sure how else to word it right now
20:19:15  <supermop> which might be red
20:19:17  <Alberth> wouldn't a path signal solve this?
20:19:19  <Rienzilla> well, the thing is, it very rarely goes wrong even though the station is pretty heavily used
20:19:20  <Eddi|zuHause> supermop: that hasn't been true for so many years now
20:19:34  <drac_boy> anyone know what I'm trying to explain btw?
20:19:38  <Rienzilla> Alberth: I split the station in two with a path signal
20:19:45  <supermop> Eddi|zuHause: I haven't used exit signals for so many years now
20:19:52  <Rienzilla> so it's not completely blocked now if a train overshoots the entry signal
20:20:06  <Rienzilla> How do I make a screenshot :)
20:20:11  <Alberth> ctl+s
20:20:47  <Alberth> although I normally use an application to grab just a little piece of the window
20:21:12  <Rienzilla> hold on
20:21:17  <Alberth> the idea of a path signal is that it only goes to a platform if there is one free
20:21:44  <Rienzilla> well, a path signal would make a train continue to the next safe stopping point
20:21:59  <Rienzilla> so if there's a red signal before the platform it'll simply continue
20:22:15  <Rienzilla> Maybe a path signal without any other signals would work
20:22:19  <Alberth> so don't put one there, as it is not a safe place to stop :p
20:22:21  <supermop> correct
20:22:38  <Rienzilla> that seems too easy lol

20:22:47  <supermop> with path signals, you do not need a signal at the 'rear' of the platform, only the far end
20:23:07  <supermop> and multiple trains can use the station throat at once
20:23:16  <Alberth> Rienzilla: if you want it more difficult, add one but in reverse :)
20:23:30  <drac_boy> supermop don't you sometimes use a one-way pbs signal facing the platform to avoid one train blocking the whole junction just because it was slow to get out of the junction when a path still exists for another train?
20:23:31  <Alberth> with a 2-way path signal
20:23:31  *** Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
20:24:37  <Rienzilla> I do that on most smaller stations
20:25:03  <Rienzilla> hmm lol, just the path signal is fine indeed it seems :)
20:25:44  <Rienzilla> thanks
20:28:09  <Rienzilla> so with path signals, the entry-exit-combo signals are pretty much useless :)
20:28:59  <Alberth> indeed
20:29:14  <Alberth> there are still some advanced uses, I think
20:29:39  <Alberth> but you'll have to ask the openttdcoop gurus for that :)
20:29:59  *** telanus [~Barney_Er@] has left #openttd []
20:30:46  * drac_boy uses programmable signals a lot mind you heh
20:33:09  <Rienzilla> whats that?
20:35:58  <drac_boy> think it might be better if you read the wiki part on it btw
20:36:02  <drac_boy> ok? :)
20:36:07  <Rienzilla> sure
20:36:20  <Alberth> programmable signals is not in plain OpenTTD
20:37:35  <drac_boy> whats "plain"? :p
20:37:48  <Rienzilla> the thing you download from the website :P
20:37:52  <Alberth> trunk, or a release
20:38:11  <Alberth> aka not patched :p
20:38:25  <drac_boy> umm any version can be downloaded from 'website' :p

21:00:45  *** Iviv [] has joined #openttd
21:00:49  <Iviv> evening all
21:01:53  <Iviv> When running a dedicated server, is it possible to change anything in the openttd.cfg withough requiring a restart?
21:03:32  <Rubidium> depends on the settings and what you want
21:03:52  <Rubidium> the basic premise is that OpenTTD writes to the configuration file when closing down and only reads it when starting
21:04:21  <Rubidium> there is a setting that allows rereading the configuration file when starting a new game in the dedicated server
21:04:31  <Iviv> Thanks, figured as much
21:04:40  <Rubidium> alternatively you can change settings using rcon
21:04:44  *** fonsinchen [] has joined #openttd
21:05:05  <Iviv> Ooh, what can you change like that? I assume there's limitations
21:05:59  <Iviv> Ideally looking at chaning never_expire_vehicles but that's a biggy that I doubt can change without a server restart
21:05:59  <Rubidium> most settings for new games and quite a few for the current game
21:06:01  *** Zeknurn [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
21:06:17  <Iviv> Yeah, its for a server I'm running that's mid-game
21:06:42  *** Zeknurn [] has joined #openttd
21:07:06  <Rubidium> I think you can't change that setting on a running MP game
21:07:23  <Rubidium> it's actually a setting stored in the savegame, so changing the config won't even change it for a loaded game
21:07:27  <Iviv> Yeah, didn't think so
21:07:30  <Iviv> Oh, really?
21:08:30  <Iviv> Thanks for the help on that :)
21:12:40  *** drac_boy [] has left #openttd [I'm done being in this room!]
21:14:04  <Wolf01> o_o
21:15:38  <Nat_aS> what's the point of being able to rotate the square airports? Just asthetics?
21:15:57  <Nat_aS> because I think it's funny that airports can be rotated by other buildings can't
21:17:15  <V453000> I guess to make you able build them not only like a*b but also b*a
21:17:23  <V453000> to fit in different places
21:17:32  <V453000> which justifies only 2 rotations, but ... :)
21:18:06  <Nat_aS> yeah, when I heard it was rotatble I just assumed you could make them longer or taller
21:18:13  <Nat_aS> with the rotations just being mirrored sprites
21:18:31  <Nat_aS> why did people bother drawing the backs of airports when all the other buildings don't have backs?
21:18:39  *** Prof_Frink [] has joined #openttd
21:20:29  <Nat_aS> and if airports are rotatable, what's stoping people from hacking in a sim city 2000 esque pseudo map rotation.
21:20:48  <Nat_aS> where the map rotates, but the buildings rotate as well so you never really see the backside.

21:26:10  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: not all airports are rotatable. and not all other buildings are rotatable
21:26:23  <Terkhen> good night
21:26:27  <Nat_aS> all airports in openGFX airports are rotatable.
21:26:29  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: e.g. banks and hotels
21:26:35  <Nat_aS> factories also
21:26:42  <Nat_aS> they often have one or two chunks missing
21:26:47  <Nat_aS> and thus cannot be swaped
21:26:54  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: openGFX+ airports are not a default grf

21:28:37  <Nat_aS> yes, I know, but it wouldn't be as complicated as some other often requested features, Just new sprites for non square buildings, Eveyrything else can be cheated
21:28:40  <Nat_aS> and I have to go now
21:37:59  <Eddi|zuHause> "just new sprites" is more difficult than you think
21:38:25  <Eddi|zuHause> you can't require opengfx, for example. and it's silly to push opengfx-style graphics into the original graphics
21:38:43  <Rubidium> "just new sprites" for rivers took only a few years
21:38:45  <Eddi|zuHause> and you can't copy the original graphics
