00:07:30  <michi_cc> Zuu: If he's using AIs, 1.0.4 might still be affected by some of the squirrel bugs regarding list sorting (e.g. FS#4830)
00:08:04  <jnx> Hazzard: that's because it's rather inefficient to fly >950
00:08:21  <Zuu> michi_cc: good point

00:18:34  <Hazzard> Why would it be?
00:19:26  *** DDR [] has joined #openttd
00:19:38  <Guinness2702> Zuu: I make that about an hour now, and still no hang with 1.2 :) :) :)  Thanks for the suggestion
00:19:52  <Zuu> Great
00:20:23  <jnx> Hazzard: likely air resistance?
00:20:55  <jnx> Hazzard: why else would there be no supersonic flights? (Even the COncorde was decommissioned, though not for the reason of inefficiency arguably)
00:22:30  <Hazzard> There is still time
00:22:55  <Hazzard> The high speed planes are probably released to early
00:23:01  <Hazzard> but who knows what the future might have
00:34:47  <Hazzard> Does anyone know how to make it so that a vehicle won't carry 4x pax, 2x mail, and 2x goods?
00:36:15  <jnx> What kind of vehicle
00:38:27  <Guinness2702> Okay, quick question about 1.2; It doesn't seem to show help, when I right click on a tool, like 1.0.4 did.  Is there an option to turn this on?

00:44:25  <Hazzard> jnx: RV
00:44:32  <Hazzard> is there a difference?
00:45:53  <jnx> Road Vehicle? Rail Vehicle?
00:46:35  <jnx> Most road vehicles only carry one type of goods (but what do I know...), so the question seems moot.
00:46:43  <jnx> In case of rail vehicles, "don't add a mail van?"

00:53:55  <michi_cc> Tooltips are with mouse hover now by default.
01:03:41  <Hazzard> I mean the cargo_capacity parameter.
01:03:46  <Hazzard> I want to avoid "By default, passenger capacity is 4x, and mail/goods capacity 2x larger than capacity for other cargoes. The capacity set here is used for the default (i.e. first refittable) cargo. Use the cargo_capacity callback to avoid this effect"

08:32:10  <krinn> openttd 1.2 display only signs of my own company now, that's great, but is there a way to get back old behavior (display all signs in the sign panel) ?
08:32:51  <Eddi|zuHause> try advanced settings

08:35:15  <Hazzard> (whoops, I missed >interface>
08:36:04  <krinn> it's ok it's where i have look too: you speak about "loading" and "liveries" for companies, both set to all

08:51:55  <krinn> <even though i am a girl> vote yes
08:52:06  <Hazzard> Alberth: Realistic, but with original it goes even slower
08:52:41  <Alberth> ok, so you did not miss that one :)
08:53:24  <Hazzard> This says the high the tractive effort the better
08:53:26  <Alberth> In TTDPatch, first post? /me votes for bot
08:53:56  <Hazzard> This says the opposite
08:53:58  <Alberth> Hazzard: accelerate != high max speed
08:54:27  <Hazzard> You know what I mean.
08:54:27  <Alberth> high TE means it can pull heavy loads
08:54:50  <Hazzard> whoops, the first link says lower the better
08:54:51  <Hazzard> meh
08:54:58  <Hazzard> and what about weight
08:55:28  <Alberth> lighter is better, but light engines cannot pull heavy weights :)
08:55:38  <Hazzard> maybe it has something to do with air resistance

09:11:19  <Terkhen> the max speed limit without setting it was (IIRC) roughly near 240 so that's probably your issue
09:11:30  <Hazzard> Yeah

09:52:52  <krinn> Zuu ?
09:53:54  <krinn> i've update the tests scripts, now they are working
09:54:48  <krinn> the lib mostly work, still need to work on relaying messages for aiaiproto and strengh commands usage some more
09:55:39  <Zuu> So the ai-ai protocol is still ment to be included?
09:56:44  <Zuu> How do you see on having a default command on the GS-side that return a list of all command sets supported by the GS?
09:57:50  *** Hazzard_is_AFK [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:59:21  *** Devroush [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:00:02  <krinn> yeah the ai-ai need to be made
10:00:27  <krinn> for the 2nd: i return the list of command handle by the GS while registring with the client
10:00:38  <Zuu> I though we decided to drop it, but if you want to do it, sure go ahead :-)
10:01:10  <krinn> well, it's not made yet, and if the GS config is set to reject it, none can use it
10:02:14  <krinn> as client record their command by creation : says "Test" command is the 3rd command, then client "Test" command = 2
10:02:33  *** Devroush [] has joined #openttd
10:02:54  <krinn> when registering with the server, the server tell "Test" is command = 6 (the 5rd command handle by the server) and the client change its command "Test" to = 6
10:03:39  <krinn> so all clients must comply to server command numbering, and doing so, grab also commands the server is using (hence your list of server commands)
10:03:48  *** mal2__ [] has joined #openttd
10:03:56  <Zuu> I wondered how you handeled that when I started to try to use it, as by my memory we used integers for command IDs.
10:04:12  <Zuu> Eg. not transmitting the full name of the command.
10:04:49  <krinn> Zuu, yep, that's why we need to match client_command_id with server_command_id, else client might send 2 as command "Test" while server is handling 2 - "anotherCmd" and 5 - "Test"
10:04:59  <Zuu> So, a GS should setup the SCP part within the startup ticks.
10:05:11  <krinn> it does already
10:05:13  <Zuu> To ensure that it has registred all commands before a client tries to hand shake.
10:05:36  <krinn> the register part for server send the commands and reassign, the client part grab them and apply the new value
10:06:24  <krinn> Zuu, and we don't need to setup at first tick : as long as registration isn't made, server ignore all commands :)
10:06:31  <Zuu> What if badly coded GS A does lots of setup tasks so that it will only come to the point of setting up SCP 1 gameyear into the game. What if AI X tries to communicate with A before it is set up? Will that just work because the GS will not scan signs until it has been setup?
10:07:10  <krinn> if AI isn't registred, all its commands are buffered : once registration is done, the buffer is clean and commands sent
10:07:33  <Zuu> Ok
10:07:49  <Zuu> So there shouldn't be a problem if the GS is slower than the AI to startup.
10:08:05  <krinn> yep, the AI have 2 ways to handle that
10:08:16  <krinn> just send the commands : and they will get auto-add to the buffer
10:08:52  <krinn> or check CanSpeakWith() that will return true if the command will be done without buffering
10:09:00  <Zuu> if the SCP code runs, otherwise they will just sit around as signs on the map. Using the map as a buffer :-)
10:09:36  <krinn> yep, but just 1 sign, as the buffered commands aren't execute at all, but kept until they could
10:09:48  <krinn> only the reg query will be there
10:09:57  <Zuu> ok
10:10:49  <krinn> and none will see that 1 sign except the player :)
10:11:08  <Zuu> :-)
10:11:10  *** mal2_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:11:12  <krinn> i didn't find a way to see all signs like openttd < 1.2 was doing (that would have help a lot)
10:11:35  <Zuu> seeing as player or seeing as script?
10:11:39  *** andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
10:11:53  <krinn> even the GS cannot see them without switching to the company
10:11:55  <Zuu> As player, make sure you have the option 'show competitor signs' active in the settings menu.
10:12:30  <krinn> show competitor signs <--- that's what i need, where can i find it ?
10:12:39  *** andythenorth [] has quit []
10:12:53  <Zuu> Same place as turning on/off details.
10:12:57  <Zuu> and animation
10:13:13  <Zuu> and advanced settings etc.
10:13:19  <Zuu> from within a running game.
10:13:56  <Zuu> I think that is design feature of GS. You tell it to act as a given company. You see what the company sees, and you operate on its porperty.
10:14:25  <Zuu> Thoguh, yes one could argue that at diety level you should have access to everything, but having it as its now, you don't modify player things by mistake.
10:15:49  <krinn> made us loop thru all companies to check signs, but i have loop thru only valid companies to lower the loop
10:17:04  <Zuu> Yes, thats typically what a GS have to do, loop over companies.
10:17:36  <krinn> made it funny to see the GSSign.GetOwner
10:17:42  *** andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
10:18:25  <krinn> a bit non-sens this function if you're not seeing signs except been the company :)
10:18:41  <Zuu> I believe the sign IDs are unique through the game, so if you store a ID you could later lookup the owner, but yea its a bit redundant as it is now.
10:19:33  <krinn> the test are now update to works, you can check them for real usage
10:19:49  *** Pixa [] has joined #openttd
10:20:35  <krinn> we should doc the API, we have some configuration options and some functions to use (QueryCompany, QueryServer, Answer...)
10:20:56  <krinn> the code also need comments for functions...

10:21:39  <drac_boy> hi
10:22:02  <Zuu> I'll continue my tests now, given that you have fixed the issue that I ran into. But I understand if not evrything is finished and I have too lookup how things work. :-)

10:22:27  <krinn> hi drac_boy
10:23:00  <krinn> Zuu, and all GS handling SCP will need to doc their API too :)
10:23:22  <drac_boy> hi krinn
10:23:31  <Zuu> Yep, and we need to either ditch or update the wiki page. At least I added a note that it's not up to date. :-)
10:23:58  <Zuu> But its probably a good place to some minimal examples.
10:24:20  <krinn> the protocol.txt is update, maybe not in an easy understandable form
10:24:55  *** LordPixaII [~pixa@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:26:21  <drac_boy> got a little computer question tho...can you plug a usb3 drive into usb1.1/2 computer just like that or not really?
10:26:55  <krinn> they should have rename it if not
10:27:32  <krinn> so yes
10:27:42  <drac_boy> hm ok thanks
10:28:06  <drac_boy> still wonder about the protocol overhead but guess thats something better off found somewhere else heh
10:30:45  <Zuu> A 3.0 device would need to fallback to the protocol of 1.1/2, unless USB has a special future mode embeded into 1.1 and 2.0 that adds extra overhead when using with future devices.
10:31:23  <drac_boy> zuu hmm that sounds more reasonable now, thanks
10:38:17  <Zuu> I wonder, as SCPLib is singleton sort of class, would it be feasible to make it so that you don't need to instanciate the SCPLib class to use it? I see that you need to store some values, so behind the sceens there need to be an instance for storage. Also I think it is better to make the callbacks take the class instance as arg too rather than imposing users to various tricks to access the "this" pointer in a callback.
10:39:13  *** TWerkhoven[l] [] has joined #openttd
10:39:29  <krinn> well, we could remove the instance part at cost of static variable
10:40:01  <krinn> anything use in it must be set static or we will lost them
10:40:38  <Zuu> yes, but they could be named such that there is no real risk of conflicting with AI/GS vars.
10:41:01  <krinn> but maybe, we could record the context when the command is added, and send back the context when the function callback is trigger
10:44:04  <Zuu> Hmm, I thoguh that SuperLib.Helper.CallFunction supported passing a class instance along with the function pointer to class a member function of an instance, but apparanetly not. However, I think I have seen a implementation of a class Valuate function that has this functionality.
10:46:59  <krinn> we could just pass the class function instance already as callback, if not the this.function() is assume
10:50:30  <krinn> AddCommand("SCPRegister", "SCPBaseSet", _SCPLib_Client.RegisterClient);  is doing that per example
10:53:51  *** mal2_ [] has joined #openttd
10:55:08  *** roboboy [] has joined #openttd
10:58:49  <krinn> you wish the callback function pass the original "this" as arguement?
10:59:52  <Zuu> I diged up some old code that I don't know if it work anymore, but that did allow passing a function pointer and the instance of a class that the function belongs in:
11:00:34  <Zuu> If that is not possible anymore due to restrictions in acall, then it would be possible to just pass an arg called _this or something along with message.
11:01:11  <krinn> a func_triggered(context, message) so user could thatclass::func_triggered(context, message) and have a chance to use context.var_in_its_own_class ?

11:23:54  <drac_boy> zuu that wasn't the question silly :)
11:25:42  <drac_boy> hm the transportgoals one seem interesting...imagine that could cause very massive trains in ukrs2 tho
11:27:09  <Zuu> If played to the extreeme yes :-)
11:27:49  <Zuu> It uses the average over all vehicles you have, so it penaltize usage of trucks and other low capacity vehicles.
11:30:16  *** mal2_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:30:54  <drac_boy> hmm...still penaltize short trains or not so much?
11:31:43  <Zuu> As all vehicles contribute to the mean, its in theory to win with just one vehicle.
11:32:13  <Zuu> One extension would be to use at least 10 as the divisor even if there is less than 10 vehicles.
11:32:27  <Zuu> eg. sum / max(10, num)
11:32:44  <drac_boy> hmm ok then
11:35:21  <Zuu> Outside of OpetTTD I've also written a traffic intersection simulation program (Junctioneer). It's not as fancy graphics wise as OpenTTD and in many senses more limited, but takes a different focus.
11:37:31  <drac_boy> real intersections rather than these silly games that requires you to change lights between red and green without causing too long lineups?
11:37:52  *** roboboy [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
11:37:53  <Zuu> yep
11:38:02  <Zuu> and it features vehicle collisions :-)
11:38:35  <drac_boy> heh does it randomize idiot drivers too? :P
11:38:44  <Zuu> But it has long way to go to be anywhere near the status of professional software as eg. Vissim or Aimsun.
11:39:22  <Zuu> It randomize some charasteristics of the drivers.
11:39:38  <Zuu> Eg. max speed and acceleration.
11:40:47  <drac_boy> zuu I assume it would have specific lane lights too?
11:41:03  *** Hazzard [] has joined #openttd
11:41:31  <Zuu> Yes, you can even control the individual exits of one lane separtely if you like to. Eg. to have pre-green for right turn.
11:41:52  <Zuu> One thing that is missing however, is roads with more than one lane that allow free lane changes.
11:42:04  <drac_boy> zuu ok because these are the various things I could think of....
11:43:42  <Zuu> The three-way intersection example bundled with it demonstrates the signalization features quite well I think. At least those that are present in 0.2 :-)
11:44:50  <drac_boy> no turn on red ... directional greens (you know, arrow lamps) ... white slit (probably different in other countries but that means 'only bus can go now' here) ... one of any three colours flashing meaning either its off-rush period and to be treated as 4-way stop OR the system broke down into fail-fault mode ... etc
11:46:22  <Hazzard> I need to know something that probably seems pretty simple
11:46:40  <Hazzard> How do you increase the acceleration of a high speed road vehicle?
11:48:52  <michi_cc> You reduce air drag and increase power. TE is mostly irrelevant at higer speeds.
11:54:27  <drac_boy> zuu these made sense btw?

11:56:55  *** gm_stack is now known as Guest666
11:57:20  <Zuu> directional greens are sort of already supported. PuT (public transport) signals aren't supported yet, and currently you can't put transport mode restrictions on links, but the changes needed in the pathfinder wouldn't be very hard to do.
11:59:07  <drac_boy> zuu yeah because what I recall from the few sights of them is that these PuT otherwise avoids costly bridge/tunnel at busy points where eg the bus turns left onto a new road in far right lane to then drop off people...then it leaves to soon hit a intersection where it has to turn left...but its in the right lane of all the things
11:59:26  <drac_boy> hence the signal to let bus start ahead of any of the cars to make its wide left turn
12:00:06  <drac_boy> bit clever idea isn't it?
12:00:55  <Hazzard> Thanks michi_cc

12:25:49  <HackaLittleBit> frosch123: hello frosch, can I talk a about fs5147
12:26:50  <HackaLittleBit> would it not be a idea to create small svn repository to show changes?
12:27:39  <HackaLittleBit> and keep track of suggestions.
12:28:17  *** Hazzard [] has quit [Quit: Page closed]
12:28:38  <HackaLittleBit> I have basic document structure ready, but still many changes to be done.
12:29:04  <frosch123> hmm, isn't there already some project on coop for that?
12:29:20  <HackaLittleBit> give link pls.
12:29:41  <frosch123> <- found it
12:31:26  <frosch123> alternatively we could use the wiki
12:31:50  <frosch123> i am not sure how much of a history tracking is needed
12:32:06  <frosch123> so, a hg repo might be too much, compared to a wiki site with some images
12:37:12  <HackaLittleBit> This weekend I'll upload the document. Most of the work was getting the structure correct. Proposed changes are not all implemented. The suggestion from albert to put loading height map in the world generator makes a lot of sense. The idea is to make changes in foto first
12:37:13  <frosch123> planetmaker: are you available for discussion? :)
12:38:03  <HackaLittleBit> only when layout is correct do programming
12:42:41  <HackaLittleBit> frosch123: If you wan't I can upload now in order to have a quick look.
12:44:14  <frosch123> no idea, what do you need? a wiki site? just some storage site for documents? or a repository?
12:44:45  <HackaLittleBit> svn repository with commit rights.
12:44:47  <frosch123> the coop redmine has kind of all of those three
12:44:59  <frosch123> coop uses hg, not svn :)
12:45:27  <HackaLittleBit> I'll check it out and come back to you :)

12:46:13  <frosch123> are you registered on the devzone?
12:46:19  <HackaLittleBit> no

12:47:23  * drac_boy pokes zuu
12:48:02  <frosch123> well, i assume you want to upload the html preview trickery. so, something like "gui design cases"? as subproject of the "openttd-gui" project?
12:48:22  <HackaLittleBit> fine with me.
12:48:35  <frosch123> just "gui" sounds weird as subproject of "openttd-gui" :)
12:49:14  <HackaLittleBit> hold on pls
12:50:00  <HackaLittleBit> 'gui design tracking'
12:50:10  <HackaLittleBit> is that better?
12:50:40  <frosch123> i think we can also change that later on, so just "gui design" for now

13:11:13  <HackaLittleBit> that is reason for svn
