05:51:43  <NGC3982> agaran: ;)
05:54:16  <NGC3982> agaran: most of the company funded public roads around the various democratic countries, usually stay public.
05:55:30  <V453000> officially :P
05:56:36  <NGC3982> well, apple funded roads are of course not prohibited to unix developers.
05:56:44  <NGC3982> Most*, and Well*.
05:57:42  <andythenorth> V453000: would you like to draw a ship for FISH 2?
05:58:04  <V453000> I would love to andy, make my day 72 hours long though :P
05:58:04  <andythenorth> to make a break from trains and cats?
05:58:16  <andythenorth> everyone is so busy
05:58:25  <andythenorth> what happened to unemployment? :P
05:58:32  <V453000> :D
05:58:45  <NGC3982> I wish i could invent a clock
05:59:08  <V453000> even when I get some free time I have came up with like a bazillion ideas for NUTS which need to be implemented all at once
05:59:14  <V453000> so I need that sorted asap
05:59:18  <andythenorth> meh
05:59:25  <NGC3982> A clock that makes your personal day a hundred hours long.
05:59:28  <andythenorth> pixel drawing is in short supply
05:59:41  <V453000> mhm
05:59:41  <andythenorth> I have some offers of help from people I don't trust
05:59:49  <andythenorth> and some people I trust who are busy :P
05:59:53  <NGC3982> andythenorth: Time for me to learn to paint sprites, maybe?
06:00:00  <andythenorth> you can but try
06:00:02  <andythenorth> I learnt
06:00:16  <V453000> :P Maybe I will give it a try sometime ... I will have to investigate the style of fish tho
06:00:19  * NGC3982 would love to try it out, at least.
06:00:25  <andythenorth> V453000 started some documentation on painting ttd style
06:00:33  <NGC3982> On the Wiki?
06:00:35  <andythenorth> boats are the worst possible thing to draw
06:00:40  <V453000> :DD
06:00:52  <NGC3982> I'm on a boat (MF)!
06:00:59  <Supercheese> I figure rendering then editing has to be loads easier than painting from scratch...
06:01:01  *** |Jeroen| [] has left #openttd [Leaving]
06:01:02  <andythenorth> the easiest thing to draw are trains that are symmetrical along two axes
06:01:07  <V453000> lately I have been trying various styles and I dont even know what do I actually like best atm :D
06:01:25  <NGC3982> V453000: Where can i find this ..documentation.
06:01:32  * NGC3982 thow's kitties at andythenorth
06:02:46  <V453000> ^ I wonder about that too, tt-foundry seems like not the spot :)
06:03:48  <andythenorth>
06:03:56  <V453000> oh noway :D
06:04:32  <andythenorth> e.g.
06:04:59  <V453000> I know I wrote that ..
06:06:12  <V453000> oh
06:06:20  <V453000> jesus christ sorry im asleep yet :D
06:06:33  <V453000> [08:13] <andythenorth> V453000 started some documentation on painting ttd style <- I thought there was a : after my name
06:06:44  <V453000> meaning you started something xD
06:06:48  <V453000> <- dumb
06:07:28  <V453000> but yeah I would love to continue writing that stuff but atm I spend most of the time with nuts and also I am kind of confused atm about styles :D
06:07:49  <V453000> my redrawing of about 7 trains ended up having like 5 different styles
06:07:51  <V453000> ..
06:11:39  <V453000> I will see andy, I will probably at least try a ship, but I fear that it will restrain me in the styles too much ... will see
06:11:45  <V453000> also a ship is a lof of pixels :)

06:21:50  <V453000> it is horrible, I once tried to draw a bigger building and a base tile and it is soooo much more pixels than a train is :D
06:23:44  *** Pixa [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:29:57  <Supercheese> Any Script-fu magic to batch convery .pngs to TTD palette?
06:30:12  <Supercheese> convert*
06:33:36  <planetmaker> for *that* I don't have a script-fu magic. But would likely be feasible
06:35:17  * Supercheese has never coded script-fu
06:35:25  <Supercheese> or any GIMP automation, for that matter
06:36:34  <planetmaker> it looks difficult and needs a bit getting hang of. But ... then it's not terribly difficult
06:36:53  <planetmaker> I'd suggest to look through the gimp scripts pages. Likely such thing even exists (except another palette)
06:37:01  <Supercheese> Good heavens, so many parentheses
06:37:58  <Supercheese> Oh, looks like you can run batch commands from the command line
06:38:20  <Supercheese> or the script-fu console I suppose
06:38:32  <planetmaker> yes
06:40:48  <planetmaker> gimp -b -i -n < script
06:41:09  <andythenorth> V453000: ship is a *lot* of pixels :)
06:42:43  <andythenorth> and small ships aren't so much needed for FISH 2, they're mostly done ;)
06:43:17  <andythenorth> buildings are alright, once you understand the shading patterns
06:43:28  <andythenorth> the hardest thing is finding a correct shape
06:43:35  <andythenorth> and then organising the windows to look good
06:43:53  *** Pixa [] has joined #openttd
06:43:58  <andythenorth> after that there are only 4 or 5 shading styles, just pick one and use it :P
06:44:27  <V453000> yeah windows are ass
06:45:07  <V453000> so only big ships ... k :D
06:45:24  <V453000> now I see why the recruitment :p
06:45:50  <andythenorth> they're actually not so bad, once you have the style, you can cut + paste large sections
06:46:08  *** pugi [] has joined #openttd
06:46:41  <V453000> hehe
06:47:25  <andythenorth> time for /me to go and learn how to render macros via the view callable
06:47:26  *** LordPixaII [] has joined #openttd
06:47:36  <andythenorth> which is better than calling them directly from the template
06:47:43  <andythenorth> as there's less boilerplate
06:47:46  <andythenorth> but more indirection :(
06:48:18  *** KingPixaIII [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:48:39  <V453000> was that english?
06:48:49  <planetmaker> yes
06:48:58  <V453000> :P
06:51:45  <andythenorth> it could actually be applied to FISH 2
06:51:50  <andythenorth> but it doesn't right now :P
06:52:01  <andythenorth> the macros in FISH 2 are called directly from the template
06:52:28  *** Pixa [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:52:38  <andythenorth> which leads to code like:
06:52:38  <andythenorth> <tal:call_global_template define="global_template load:" metal:use-macro="global_template" />
06:52:39  *** Pixa [~pixa@] has joined #openttd
06:52:53  <andythenorth> which is very loaded with boilerplate
06:53:02  <andythenorth> whereas I could learn how to do:
06:53:19  <andythenorth> ${view.macro(''global_template')}
06:53:26  <andythenorth> and get the same result
06:54:29  * andythenorth -> honest toil

06:58:13  <NGC3982> i was thinking.
06:58:39  <NGC3982> is there some third-party software for creating NewGRF's for non-coding users?
06:59:25  <Supercheese> GRFMaker only one I'm aware of, and it's severely lacking in many areas
06:59:34  <Supercheese> NML is currently best way to generate GRFs, IMHO
06:59:37  <NGC3982> i recently made some of my first draft for a report system in C#, and ive made a click-n-drag win32 program that essentially (and simply) can create files (and make somewhat decent linux commands).
07:00:14  <NGC3982> Supercheese: I see. I was actually thinking about making a simple "Make your own TTD bus!" program, just for kicks.
07:00:16  <V453000> nml is simple :p dont fear coding
07:00:19  <V453000> im not a coder either
07:00:45  <V453000> my code is probably also terrible, but nml is easy
07:00:46  <planetmaker> NGC3982: you're asking to code without coding
07:00:51  <NGC3982> I do not fear NML (although, i don't really code it). Im thinking about making a software with click-n-drag for simple vehicle GRF's, for other people.
07:00:59  <planetmaker> it's like writing without keyboard nor voice input
07:01:01  <NGC3982> As nothing more then a fun program.
07:01:11  <NGC3982> note: As nothing more then a fun program.
07:01:39  <V453000> idk how evolved are the grf makers etc :)
07:01:46  *** LordPixaII [~pixa@] has joined #openttd
07:02:13  *** Pixa [~pixa@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:02:33  <NGC3982> The thing is; Writing NML and creating a GRF with sucha software is almost identical to dito software, used to create important files for my business systems.
07:02:37  <NGC3982> So, why not.
07:03:06  <NGC3982> Such a*
07:04:19  <NGC3982> planetmaker: Yes, it surely wont make users able to create new industries, make their own sprites or similar changes. Though, it would be fun partly as a coding experience for myself, and maybe a fun treat to new-to-coding-and/or-OpenTTD users.
07:04:27  <V453000> well it wont hurt anybody? :p
07:04:34  <NGC3982> Exactly.
07:04:47  <NGC3982> Im sorry if i gave the impression of trying to create something official. :P
07:05:16  <V453000> I dont think you were answered about the program but about coding in general
07:05:35  <planetmaker> :-) jo
07:05:36  <NGC3982> Yes, i noticed.
07:05:54  <planetmaker> I don't say it's bad. It may even be fun
07:06:10  <planetmaker> but it will always be much more limited than the written programmes
07:06:17  <NGC3982> Yes, indeed.
07:06:22  <planetmaker> heck, even NML puts more restrictions on a NewGRF than plain NFO does
07:06:41  <NGC3982> NFO is some kind of ancient moon language.
07:06:48  <planetmaker> though in the nml/nfo case that is offset by the far superior way to create more complex expressions and structures
07:06:54  *** KingPixaIII [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:07:32  <NGC3982> It's on. Im going to try it out.
07:07:42  <NGC3982> And i think ill start with a web based GRF-creator
07:08:23  <NGC3982> Hm, i don't think i need anything else then a web based creator (read: Generator).
07:09:19  <V453000> web based?
07:09:30  <Supercheese> Yeah, if you just want to make a couple of vehicles, a web-based doohickey that outputs NML which is then compiled to grf shouldn't be that tedious
07:10:02  <planetmaker> NGC3982: I'm thinking of a web-frontend to the devzone where you can upload your nml and sprites and it will compile for you
07:10:04  <Supercheese> or appropriate some of the meta-config stuff from other projects, even
07:10:15  <planetmaker> such solution exists in principle. But one cannot update the sprites. which sucks
07:13:21  *** valhallasw [] has joined #openttd
07:15:23  <NGC3982> V453000: Yes.
07:15:33  <NGC3982> planetmaker: Absolutely.
07:15:43  <NGC3982> I have already made the default sprite for a train
07:15:56  <NGC3982> That the user can download, edit and reupload
07:16:18  <NGC3982> (At least in theory. Im no NML pro, so im waiting for principal errors in my creation).
07:17:49  <NGC3982> Supercheese: Yes, exactly. At least it's a fun thing to toss around C# with.
07:18:16  <NGC3982> Though; Where can i find information on the OpenTTD menu color scheme, and font?
07:18:49  <planetmaker> look at it ingame?
07:19:06  <planetmaker> not sure what you mean, though
07:19:13  <NGC3982> planetmaker: Im sorry, but i fail to reach up to the genious:ness of guessing a fonts name.
07:19:23  <NGC3982> Let's say the fonts of the main menu.
07:19:49  <planetmaker> as newgrf you don#t chose font
07:20:11  <planetmaker> it's a user setting in the openttd.cfg
07:20:22  <planetmaker> both size and font. Default is the sprite font coming with your base set
07:20:28  <NGC3982> Even for the main menu in Windows?
07:20:32  * NGC3982 looks
07:20:40  <planetmaker> every text in openttd
07:20:56  <planetmaker> the wiki will tell you how to change it
07:21:57  <NGC3982> (Y)!
07:22:09  <planetmaker>
08:14:27  <NGC3982> Ah, there we are.
08:14:33  <NGC3982> That makes it a bit irrelevant
08:14:47  <NGC3982> Of course, the font isnt always the same for all systems.
08:15:00  * NGC3982 thanks and moves on.

08:29:41  <NGC3982> Hm
08:29:49  <NGC3982> While planning a layout for this
08:30:07  <NGC3982> I noticed that making the conditions for a GRF-maker is very, very simple.
08:30:30  <NGC3982> The thing that will make my brain implode might be the transition between NML to .grf.
08:31:07  <Terkhen> just write nml code and use nml to translate it to the final grf
08:31:14  <Terkhen> just make it write*
08:31:36  <NGC3982> Making the NML documentation and code is super-power-turtle simple
08:31:59  <NGC3982> My problems come with communicating with the BSD shell
08:32:08  <NGC3982> It's a local (and a permission) issue i have to solve at first.

08:49:01  <agaran> NGC3982: yup, but i mean in ottd when i build road in city, then fund reconstruction, i still see same road tiles count in infrastructure
08:50:32  <NGC3982> agaran: I see. I do not know the official reason for why that happends, but i guess it's more about accounting the correct amount of infrastructure, more then who actually owns the tile of road.
08:51:48  <agaran> still, company pays for owned tiles.. then reconstruction is pointless because it dont move burden of paying for roads to city

09:00:55  <peter1138> That's the tooltip for it.
09:01:25  <peter1138> Does that give you a clue to its purpose?
09:02:21  <agaran> it is to annoy drivers of course
09:02:46  <peter1138> Not exactly.

09:18:58  <peter1138> (P.S. I'm not planetmaker)
09:19:31  <peter1138> The purpose of 'Fund road reconstruction' is to hinder the operation of other players road vehicles.

10:14:00  <FLHerne> __ln__: Sorry. My mistake :P
10:14:24  <NGC3982> FLHerne: I guess the "Zeppelin" zeppelin is un-flyable with modern air regulations.
10:15:18  <NGC3982> Wich also makes me think about one of the most unusable vehicle in all of NewGRF vehicles.

10:18:44  <FLHerne> I had >50 of them in one game. They look great over shipping... :-)
10:19:42  <NGC3982> :D
10:19:54  <NGC3982> Yeah, that's about it. It looks good.
10:22:59  <FLHerne> And moves passengers :P

12:31:41  <drush> hi everyone!
12:32:22  <drush> I'm trying to compile openttd on linux, statically. I get told that libz.a cannot be located, although it is in my toolchain's lib directory
12:32:33  <drush> what am I possibly doing wrong?
12:34:15  <planetmaker> can you paste the (complete) output?
12:34:36  <planetmaker> and the one of your configure run
12:35:01  *** mahmoud [] has joined #openttd
12:35:13  <drush> of course planetmaker
12:35:20  <planetmaker> sounds to me like that lib dir not being part of the linker options
12:37:10  <drush>
12:38:22  <planetmaker> first error is missing zlib in the path
12:39:48  <drush>
12:40:37  <drush> and btw, libz.a has been compiled with that same toolchain as well
12:42:05  <planetmaker> yes... but it is not returned as found when running the automatic lib detection. Try to configure zlib directly with --with-zlib=/path/to/zlib.a
12:42:29  <drush> thank you planetmaker, I will try this
12:43:27  <planetmaker> maybe the automatic detection can be improved.. config.lib:2496:2618
12:43:55  <drush> planetmaker it worked :D thank you very much
12:44:39  <planetmaker> np
12:48:05  <drush> as for lib detection,
12:49:22  <drush> the $PATH with a ps3 toolchain is such:
12:49:31  <drush> PS3DEV=/usr/local/ps3dev
12:49:41  <drush> PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/bin
12:49:46  <drush> PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/ppu/bin
12:49:48  <drush> PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/spu/bin

13:43:52  <planetmaker> it misses a seaport :-)

13:46:15  <NGC3982> Sea..port?

13:49:17  <NGC3982> What is a "Newobject watertile"?
13:50:02  <NGC3982> oh
13:50:03  <NGC3982> wait
13:50:04  <NGC3982> it works.
13:50:20  <FLHerne> NGC3982: A NewObject that looks exactly like a watertile, IIRC :P
13:51:07  <FLHerne> Is it now possible to make multiple airport types of the same size (sharing the current statemachines) ?
13:51:38  <NGC3982> FLHerne: I see, so i can't use this in-game just as it is?
13:51:45  <NGC3982> I simply loaded the GRF and fooled around with it.
13:52:07  <planetmaker> like...
13:52:16  <FLHerne> It works in-game, but IIRC replaces the small airport
13:52:16  <planetmaker> FLHerne: yes, that's feasible
13:53:00  <FLHerne> I was wondering if it could be made to not do that, because otherwise I can't land airships anywhere :P
13:53:06  <drush> an airport in the middle of the sea
13:53:12  <planetmaker> you can even change their footprint. The statemachine is hooked to the tile of the upper corner of the virtual rectangle
13:53:24  <drush> something like the 4th level (I think so) in tomb raider 2
13:54:00  <drush> or like the modern oil rig in classic environment, where helis can land
13:54:09  <drush> except that one could support planes
13:54:43  <FLHerne> planetmaker: Does NML do airports yet? I might play around with that :-)
13:54:59  <planetmaker> FLHerne: ogfx-airports is written in NML
13:55:07  <FLHerne> I assume they don't have a build-on-water flag yet :P
13:55:14  <planetmaker> they don't. Indeed
13:55:33  <FLHerne> Feature suggestion: Add one :P
13:57:36  <planetmaker> FLHerne: jain... there it makes sense to change that IMHO to a runway-specific flag
13:57:48  <planetmaker> which needs newgrf statemachines kinda
13:57:57  <planetmaker> and the aircraft class "seaplane"
13:58:33  <planetmaker> so yes, makes sense. But I'd like to see it in a bit more context :-)

19:25:07  <Supercheese> I've played with breakdowns disabled ever since 1996
19:26:10  <Alberth> also, they make picking an engine more complicated
19:26:44  <Alberth> without breakdowns you can just pick the biggest one, even if it sucks in reliability
19:27:05  <frosch123> yeah, when playing with default vehicles you have to enable breakdowns

19:27:17  <Supercheese> Well, I also haven't played with default vehicles in ages
19:27:50  <frosch123> if you play with something like nars, which provides updates without adding new vehicles, playing with breakdowns is silly
