00:02:07  *** oddjob is now known as sopparus
00:02:10  <sopparus> hello
00:02:39  <sopparus> ive got version 1.2.2 and a bus got stuck in my town, it cant go anywhere even though there is a road
00:06:09  <sopparus> like that
00:06:35  <Supercheese> which bus?
00:06:37  <sopparus> the rating is ofcourse bad since the bus has been stuck for 10 years or so now
00:06:40  <sopparus> let me see
00:07:22  <Supercheese> if it's the one that appears to be at Ostra Fruwood, check to make sure there is a connecting road to the bus terminal
00:07:33  <Supercheese> station signs are blocking view
00:08:07  <sopparus> is the bus behind the airport
00:08:14  <sopparus> right behind the "radar"
00:08:18  <Supercheese> Ah
00:08:47  <Supercheese> Well, you could try holding down Ctrl and clicking the bus
00:08:55  <Supercheese> make sure it gets stopped/started
00:09:27  <Supercheese> also check to make sure there isn't another stopped bus blocking the terminal
00:12:01  <sopparus> lol there was 8 buses there
00:12:04  <sopparus> one was on stop
00:12:05  <sopparus> thanks
00:12:10  <Supercheese> you're welcome :D

01:24:10  <Supercheese> Argg, can't build stations under bridges
01:35:01  <Eddi|zuHause> nope, annoying. especially for bus/tram stations...
01:35:32  <glx> prevents graphical glitches
01:36:40  <Supercheese> Well, at least the inverse works, tunneling underneath stations

01:56:49  <Supercheese> Is there any way, when renaming, to delete the line of existing text without just holding down backspace? Select all and Shift+Home don't work...
02:03:38  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't think so
02:04:23  <Eddi|zuHause> the input GUI never was adapted for selecting and copy-paste

08:07:27  <andythenorth> hmm
08:07:50  <andythenorth> some people seem to labour under the fallacy that open source is a collectivist, group effort towards some good end
08:08:33  <andythenorth> whereas it's a prime example of Ayn Rand-style individualism producing a beneficial result
08:08:50  <andythenorth> open source works because people pursue selfish ends
08:09:00  * andythenorth will now go away again
08:09:24  <andythenorth> philosophy is _probably_ not the anti-dote to fuckheads :P
08:10:14  <Kjetil> Go play with your closed source facistic OS
08:11:09  <andythenorth> is play allowed in the Kingdom of Apple?
08:11:34  <andythenorth> or must we all spend our time organising our music collections by genre?
08:11:44  <Kjetil> When you mention it.. probably not. You should probably go to some hipster cafe instead
08:11:48  <andythenorth> I have seen our future hell, and it is alphabetised
08:12:05  <Supercheese> and rated 1-5 stars
08:12:49  <andythenorth> and organised into playlists, to suit your every mood
08:13:23  * andythenorth writes some code
08:13:40  * Supercheese builds some airships
08:13:55  * planetmaker fixes some tunnel entrances
08:16:03  * Kjetil is going to spend the day watching a live broadcastt of a boat on TV
08:16:25  * Prof_Frink is going to jump off a cliff.
08:17:12  <andythenorth> do it when the tide is in
08:17:37  * Supercheese loves autorefit

10:17:23  <andythenorth> planetmaker Alberth yexo frosch123: fancy MP GS today ?
10:17:38  *** guru3 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:17:43  <Alberth> fine with me :)
10:17:49  <andythenorth> either FIRS NoCargoGoal, or we write this idea I had "Power Grid" :)
10:18:40  <andythenorth> "The 5 largest cities want to adopt electricity"
10:19:06  <andythenorth> "To earn tycoon status, build a power plant in each city, and deliver coal to it"
10:19:15  <planetmaker> sorry, I'm away today
10:19:16  <andythenorth> 30-40 years to get it done
10:19:23  <planetmaker> But sure you can use the server
10:19:29  <andythenorth> Default industry
10:20:03  <Zuu_> Im witing for my train home and will surely not hav stable enough internet to play on.
10:20:47  <andythenorth> could write a GS :D
10:20:56  <Terkhen> hi Zuu_ :)
10:21:02  <planetmaker> server is still running
10:21:02  <Zuu_> Hehe yep
10:21:15  <planetmaker> so it's easy to load a new game
10:21:29  *** guru3 [] has joined #openttd
10:22:56  <Zuu_> Collecting yearly cargo delivery statistics with exactly correct year change date is non-trivial in a GS.
10:23:19  <Zuu_> But with a few days give and take it is doable.
10:23:25  <andythenorth> could change the goal....
10:23:29  <andythenorth> to be easier to code...
10:23:43  <andythenorth> is there a DNS problem in EU somewhere?
10:23:55  <andythenorth> various german / northern european sites are failing to resolve for me
10:24:00  <TrueBrain> lolz, too general question, answer has to be yes :P
10:24:09  * andythenorth will use down for me
10:24:28  <Rubidium> andythenorth: if you mean that /. is down for me, then yes ;)
10:24:36  <Zuu_> Possible. My Opera Mini fails at the moment but not the android default browser.
10:24:59  <andythenorth> "it's just me"
10:25:02  <andythenorth> must be this ISP
10:25:08  <TrueBrain> andythenorth: 10 hours ago a major router in Germany crashed, but that is already fixed :P
10:25:22  *** bolli [~Sam@] has joined #openttd
10:32:24  <TrueBrain> ugh, websites where you cannot type a date, but have to select it ... I have to go back 4 years ....
10:33:48  <Terkhen> D
10:33:49  <Terkhen> :D
10:34:04  <Zuu_> Or when the leading zero for time is mandatory.
10:34:46  <andythenorth> TrueBrain: I am making one of those right now
10:34:59  <andythenorth> oh
10:34:59  <TrueBrain> or otherwise annoying: in the time field, tab doesnt bring me to minutes
10:35:02  <TrueBrain> I have to CLICK to get there
10:35:11  <andythenorth> no I'm making the other way around.  I have fields where you *have* to type only
10:35:24  <andythenorth> I haven't bothered testing a datepicker for Bootstrap yet
10:41:36  <frosch123> TrueBrain: welcome to touchscreens :)

11:03:09  <frosch123> that's 15:00 in sane time?

11:05:01  *** Zuu_ [] has joined #openttd
11:05:30  <planetmaker> andythenorth: then join the channel so that I can give you ops so that you can command the server. Or whoever wants to play
11:05:37  <planetmaker> I'm about to leave in the next 30 minutes
11:05:51  <planetmaker> or ask ammler to give it to you later
11:06:02  <andythenorth> frosch123: do you know how to use !rcon?
11:06:05  * andythenorth doesn't
11:07:43  <frosch123> you need to be op in the channel at least or so

11:16:46  <welshdragon> Morning, Why can't I choose the 'large' option when founding towns?
11:17:09  <bolli> I thought the large option was only there for cities?

11:18:23  <planetmaker> if you fund towns, you don't start big. You have to build it slowly ingame

12:07:15  <bolli> Is there any way to extract a crash log when the game just freezes and ends up getting zapped by the OS? :p
12:11:51  *** Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
12:12:13  <frosch123> depends on what os you are :)
12:12:42  <frosch123> on linux you can attach a debugger, or alternatively send it signal 6
12:12:54  <frosch123> the former is better ofc

12:37:51  <bolli> Hmm
12:37:55  <bolli> Not recompiling
12:38:14  <bolli> But its in a dropbox folder that symlinked to newgrf
12:38:20  <glx> anyway broken newgrf is the more probable cause
12:38:27  <bolli> probably....

12:40:21  <andythenorth> Rubidium: I do that all the time :)
12:40:29  <andythenorth> and causes a crash :)

12:53:28  <SquireJames> like something from Judge Dredd I imagine
13:07:28  <Terkhen> Fremen: open the multiplayer server list ingame and sort it by years
13:07:45  <Terkhen> the server that has been in the same savegame for 11000 ingame years looks promisingly eternal
13:08:25  <Fremen> hehe yeah, but would be bnice to be in one when it's around starting date
13:08:29  <Fremen> nice*
13:08:58  <Fremen> I'll think about running a server by myself
13:09:06  <Fremen> hoping that people find it :p
13:09:45  <Terkhen> given the client/server ratio, that is unlikely unless your server offers something that the others do not
13:12:13  <Fremen> i see
13:12:36  <Fremen> I should know more aout huw much network traffic a server generates
13:12:42  <Fremen> i mean this game
13:12:47  <TrueBrain> that is all well documented :)
13:12:55  <Fremen> oh
13:13:09  <TrueBrain> short answer: a non-issue for any non-dialup :P
13:13:24  <Fremen> nice
13:13:32  <TrueBrain> CPU on the other hand ...
13:13:37  <Fremen> I have a bandwidth limit though
13:13:48  <Rubidium> unless your broadband is capped at 500 MB/month or so

13:15:47  <Rubidium> 5GB / client a month if connected 24/7
13:16:05  <Fremen> for what size of map?
13:16:08  <TrueBrain> any
13:16:08  <Warod> hah
13:16:11  <Rubidium> and actually using the 2 kB/s
13:16:26  <TrueBrain> map size is totally irrelevant for network traffic
13:16:30  <Fremen> okay
13:16:51  <Fremen> so a 6 player would result in 30GB per month
13:16:59  <Fremen> if continuously connecte
13:17:00  <Fremen> d
13:17:00  <TrueBrain> worst case, sure
13:17:29  <Rubidium> and that includes the players building stuff, chatting and such
13:17:54  <Rubidium> if they don't do that you would use less
13:18:22  <Fremen> where can I find info on what ports to forward and such?
13:18:26  <TrueBrain> @port
13:18:27  <DorpsGek> TrueBrain: OpenTTD uses TCP and UDP port 3979 for server <-> client communication, UDP port 3978 for masterserver (advertise) communication (outbound), and TCP port 3978 for content service, a.k.a. BaNaNaS (outbound)

13:19:56  <Warod> Damn. It didn't fall into my trick of methods of antique communications. ;)
13:20:13  <Rubidium> database heavy application (somewhat computation heavy as well) and not reaching more than 5% CPU; the rest is lost in waiting for (disk) IO of the DBMS
13:20:33  <TrueBrain> sucks to be you :D
13:21:09  <Warod> I just bought 250 GB OCZ Vertex 4 for my work/hobbies/freetime laptop. ;)
13:21:21  <Rubidium> what antique communication?
13:21:25  <Warod> POTS
13:21:29  <TrueBrain> and pans
13:21:30  <Rubidium> try implementing RFC6214
13:21:41  <Rubidium> now that's old fashioned
13:22:03  <TrueBrain> RFC1149 I like more
13:22:19  <TrueBrain> as IPv6 is n ot old fashioned
13:24:20  <TrueBrain> RFC2549 at least has pictures
13:26:35  <Rubidium> "In some locations, such as New Zealand, a significant proportion of carriers are only able to execute short hops, and only at times when the background level of photon emission is extremely low.  This will impact the availability and throughput of the solution in such locations."
13:28:07  <Fremen> darn can't join those longterm servers because of the version
13:29:55  <bolli1> Reading back up... 30GB seems a lot more than I use....
13:30:21  <bolli1> I run a server thats got a few people connected at any time, and it barely uses 4-5GB/ month....
13:30:23  <Fremen> that's good news
13:30:40  <TrueBrain> bolli1: what about "worst case" didnt you understand? :)
13:31:17  <bolli1> Worst case can't be 5-6x worse? :p
13:31:20  *** bolli1 is now known as bolli
13:31:34  <TrueBrain> there is a limitation on the worst case? Kewl
13:31:52  <Rubidium> bolli: how long does it take to go from London to New York?
13:32:45  <bolli> As long as a piece of string. Whereas, data usage is fairly predictable :p
13:33:41  <Rubidium> I'd say the time you need to get from London to New York is fairly predictable as well
13:34:10  <bolli> But it depends how you get there ;)
13:35:00  <bolli> I'm just saying that 30GB is a significant overexaggeration in my experience :p
13:35:13  <TrueBrain> it is a WORST CASE
13:35:24  <bolli> *for the worst case
13:35:26  <Alberth> worst case != realistic estimate
13:35:33  <bolli> fine... :p
13:36:45  <Rubidium> also, it's actually not the worst case. It's the measured average on a busy server for a few hours times two
13:37:04  <Rubidium> in absolute worst case it can use as much as the bandwidth to your server allows
13:38:05  <TrueBrain> that would be a bug :)
13:39:11  <Fremen> can't find a link to the 1.2.1 version :( just want to check one of those insane servers :p

14:04:38  <Zuu_> Eg what does one internal cargo unit correspond to in the GUI?
14:04:58  <Rubidium> use {CARGO}
14:05:06  <Rubidium> and don't really care ;)
14:05:13  *** Matulla [] has joined #openttd
14:05:37  <Zuu_> How are the two params for {CARGO} joined togeather to one integer parameter?
14:05:53  <Rubidium> it takes two parameters
14:05:55  <Zuu_> Or does {CARGO} grab two integers from the param list?
14:06:26  <Zuu_> amount + cargo id? or the other way around?
14:06:34  <Rubidium> IIRC the other way around
14:06:55  <Matulla> hi all ,Question  if i got a station  laft and right on the  city  same station name  the one is near  to  a powerplant  does it has a effect if i transport cole to the near or far station all acept cole
14:08:19  <Zuu_> It doesn't matter to which part of a station that you transport cargo to.
14:08:32  <Zuu_> As long as all parts belong to the same station name.
14:08:43  <Matulla> ok thanks

14:10:43  <Rubidium> noob IRC etiquette/ethics is to expect an answer within milliseconds, if not you disconnect, otherwise you disconnect just after the first answer was given
14:11:46  <Fremen> mIRC ethics = connect and never manually disconnect

14:17:59  <Fremen> hm is there a server function to automatically bankrupt playr companies after not logging in for xx years?
14:18:04  <Zuu_> I guess I need to wait until I can run OpenTTD from a debugger and see what goes wrong. Maybe dual param string codes are not (yet) supported in GS/AIs?
14:18:41  <Zuu_> Fremen: IIRC yes. See your openttd.cfg
14:19:15  <Zuu_> there are one value for passworded companies and one for unprotected companies
14:19:30  <Zuu_> IIRC, the name to look for is 'autoclean'

14:42:34  <bolli> How do I Make a train with push-pull carriages?
14:43:08  <bolli> IE- I have a locomotive with a DBSO, how do I make that work?
14:48:27  <Eddi|zuHause> it's not really possible, but some NewGRFs "cheat" in switching around the graphics of the engine and the last wagon. but this may be tedious if you have lots of possible combinations
14:50:11  <Eddi|zuHause> you would read "vehicle_is_reversed" in a switch, in that case
14:50:40  <Eddi|zuHause> for the engines 0 means "draw engine" and 1 "draw wagon", for the last wagon the other way around
14:51:17  <Eddi|zuHause> note that this will have horrible side effects if you have wagons of different length

17:06:40  *** sla_ro|master [slaco@] has joined #openttd
17:10:09  <Alberth> seems like a good idea
17:10:28  <Alberth> although you may not get agreement :p
17:11:28  <Alberth> I was wondering whether you could keep an administration yourself, ie you know when you bought it, and you know its lifetime (I hope)
17:13:07  <Alberth> if you don't know its lifetime, another option is to set the event to something early, and you can keep an administration from that moment perhaps
17:13:22  <Muxy> Alberth: i think this event will permit to avoid a loop on all vehicles and check the age
17:13:44  <Alberth> true
17:13:56  <Muxy> and you know that looping in script uses lot of cpu time
17:14:00  *** Devroush [] has joined #openttd
17:14:28  *** sla_ro|vista [slaco@] has joined #openttd
17:15:13  <Muxy> and if you look at dictatorAI (i dont really know about other), it builds a lot of vehicle.
17:15:37  *** Fremen [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:16:40  <Alberth> what I mean is that you store the end time at the moment you buy the vehicle
17:16:53  <Muxy> sure
17:17:05  <Muxy> but you need some trigger to send it to depot and renew it
17:17:28  <Alberth> you don't do daily or monthly loops or so?
17:18:07  *** sla_ro|master [slaco@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:18:09  <Muxy> i dont write AI Scripts
17:18:13  <Alberth> just add a check whether the first end time has pased or not
17:18:21  <Alberth> ah, ok :)
17:18:39  <Muxy> but if someone request it for its AI it's just because the daily/monthly loop are to heavy
17:19:26  <Alberth> that seems likely :)
17:19:41  <TrueBrain> why not make a parameter (explicit) with the time till it ages?
17:19:52  <TrueBrain> so you get first one with -1 year, than 0 year, than <whatever> year?
17:20:23  <Alberth> TrueBrain: should be limited to the last -12 to +12 months, like the player
17:20:52  <TrueBrain> Alberth: I really wouldnt know when these things are triggered; but Yexo worries about that it triggers 3 times, if I read this correctly
17:20:57  <Muxy> TrueBrain: Script parameter ?
17:21:01  <TrueBrain> which indeed is wrong, to trigger the same identical event 3 times
17:21:05  <TrueBrain> so .. just add a parameter ;)
17:21:30  <TrueBrain> Muxy: in ScriptEventVehicleIsOld
17:21:33  <TrueBrain> it now carries only vehicle_id
17:21:40  <Muxy> TrueBrain: not 3 times, but 2 and 1 every year after lifetime
17:21:41  <TrueBrain> so add some parameter to indicate which version to it
17:21:53  <TrueBrain> something like 'year' or what-ever
17:22:26  <Muxy> who sets the parameter ? Script
17:22:30  <TrueBrain> then the events are no longer identical
17:22:34  <TrueBrain> no, ofc not
17:22:43  <TrueBrain> that is silly talk
17:22:48  <TrueBrain> why would a script set the parameter of the event?
17:23:00  <Muxy> to be warned when requested
17:23:06  <TrueBrain> que?
17:23:09  <TrueBrain> that makes little sense ...
17:23:12  <Muxy> like an alarm clock
17:23:16  <TrueBrain> like I said: exactly like the vehicle_id
17:23:19  <TrueBrain> but just an extra parameter
17:23:49  <Muxy> goal is to trigger this event only once regardless of the version
17:24:00  <TrueBrain> I think that is wrong
17:24:11  <TrueBrain> which is what I am saying
17:24:28  <Muxy> ok, but Yexo said : this event must be triggered only once
17:24:38  <TrueBrain> and I disagree; I suggest a counter purposal
17:25:57  <Muxy> yop but as it will be triggered, the script must take action : send to depot, and renew
17:26:01  <TrueBrain> so, to summarize: trigger the event N times as it is needed, just like a human player gets the event, but add a parameter to the event which indicates how many years (negative for future) the vehicle has been expired
17:26:42  <TrueBrain> avoids identical events being triggered under different circumstances, and maintains the NoAI philosohy: do the same for AIs as happens for players
17:27:19  <Muxy> and in the script, what will be the logic to choose the event version to take action... just kiss, and with 1 event it will be ok
17:27:36  <TrueBrain> I disagree, and your poll shows exactly why it is wrong
17:28:02  <TrueBrain> the fact you have multiple moments you can trigger this event, shows there is not a single moment you should do it
17:29:01  <Muxy> yes but in the script you just need 1 trigger to perform action. if you have many triggers, then you must have a logic to choose what version you will use
17:29:17  <TrueBrain> if (year != -1) continue;
17:29:22  <TrueBrain> owh no .. the logic is killing me :D
17:29:34  <TrueBrain> it is identical to filtering which events you care about ;)
17:30:07  <Muxy> try to optimze the script by removing all useless things
17:30:19  <TrueBrain> by removing freedom of choice?
17:30:22  <TrueBrain> sounds a wrong kind of optimization
17:30:39  <TrueBrain> for example, you don't need the event, as Alberth pointed out
17:31:04  <TrueBrain> personally, I would like to know every year my vehicle is not renewed
17:31:07  <TrueBrain> it can indicate issues and problems
17:31:14  <TrueBrain> a player does receive this information .. and an AI won't?
17:32:31  <TrueBrain> the whole NoAI framework is build on: if the player can do it, the AI can too. If the player can't? Neither can the AI
17:32:43  <Rubidium> why not just add the date of the event? That's probably useful for all events
17:32:57  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: how would that help? :)
17:32:57  <Rubidium> after all, the user can see the date of the event as well
17:33:08  <TrueBrain> I think you misunderstand the issue :)
17:33:08  <Muxy> ok, i dont care about sending this event once or many. Just following Yexo wills. better have this discussion with Yexo, or write something in the tt-forum thread.
17:33:15  <Rubidium> I probably will
17:33:38  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: the EVENT is now triggered every year, from -1 year from expiring
17:33:45  <TrueBrain> with no indication inside the EVENT it is different
17:33:55  <TrueBrain> so year N you get the event, year N+1, N+2, ...
17:34:18  <TrueBrain> Yexo indicates in the bug tracker he wants it only triggered once
17:34:25  <TrueBrain> for example, at -1 years of expiring
17:34:47  *** sla_ro|vista [slaco@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:34:47  *** andythenorth [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
17:34:53  <TrueBrain> I can understand that partily, as every year you get an identical event, which is weird
17:34:53  *** andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
17:35:09  *** sla_ro|master [slaco@] has joined #openttd
17:35:10  <TrueBrain> so Rubidium, adding the date the event is triggered doesn't really help in that solution; or I must understand you wrong ofcourse :)
17:35:15  <Muxy> but for this event, goal is to replace asap a vehicle
17:35:23  <TrueBrain> Muxy: in your AI, maybe
17:35:25  <TrueBrain> mine might not
17:35:33  <Rubidium> if you want to send only one, then just send the first one
17:35:34  <Muxy> depend on AI's Goal
17:35:39  <TrueBrain> I might always want my vehicles to be 5 years over date
17:35:52  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: which is wrong, in my opinion; just send one every year, like a player gets them
17:36:08  <TrueBrain> why make that desision for the AI writer?
17:36:13  <Rubidium> then what *is* the problem?
17:36:19  <TrueBrain> I don't know :D
17:36:31  <TrueBrain> I only suggest to add a paramter with the year to expire, for clarity sake
17:36:32  <Rubidium> and how does adding the date of the event not help?
17:36:41  <TrueBrain> how does it?
17:36:41  <Muxy> sending event only once (yexo will)or many times (truebrain will)
17:36:57  <Rubidium> you can calculate the overdue age
17:37:02  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: you can anyway ;)
17:37:13  <TrueBrain> but isn't sending the year as parameter more clear?
17:37:14  <Rubidium> and it might be very useful for all other events that you know whether it's recent or not
17:37:17  <TrueBrain> at least, visible to the user? :)
17:37:18  <Muxy> AIScript dont care about event date. Goal is to renew vehicle asap (in a competion way of playing)
17:37:28  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: on that last part I agree, but that is something else :D
17:37:32  <Rubidium> like industry closure
17:37:43  <TrueBrain> having an event date sounds like a really good idea
17:37:48  <TrueBrain> but it doesn't really solve this problem at hand
17:37:57  <TrueBrain> it makes it rather annoying to calculate it tbh :)
17:38:53  <Rubidium> just use superlib or so to implement that
17:39:01  <TrueBrain> waste of opcodes tbfh
17:39:13  <Rubidium> then you can also use it in your normal code to renew them two years before expiring
17:39:17  <TrueBrain> and personally, I think events should be unique
17:39:19  <Muxy> other way : event can be sent every year, starting from buying with parameter : year remaning till lifetime
17:39:29  <Rubidium> then you need the date
17:39:45  <Rubidium> as (almost) all other events are inherently ununique as well
17:39:51  <TrueBrain> are they? :)
17:40:13  <Rubidium> industry closure, is that unique? No, after a few year the replacement industry closes and sends the exact same event
17:40:14  <TrueBrain> maybe I should word it better, but when I get an event VEHICLE_ARRIVED
17:40:24  <TrueBrain> it is rather unique, as in: I know exactly what happened based on the parameters
17:40:28  <TrueBrain> which arrived where and when
17:40:32  <Rubidium> production changes: same idea
17:40:40  <Rubidium> industry opened: same idea
17:40:46  <TrueBrain> I think you have an other understand of unique, so please listen for a bit
17:40:53  <TrueBrain> when I get an industry opened, I know where and what industrry opened
17:40:59  <TrueBrain> so I know all there is need to know
17:41:06  <TrueBrain> when I receive a vehicle-old, I .. know .. too little
17:41:10  <TrueBrain> is it -1 year? 0 year?
17:41:17  <TrueBrain> in that way, I mean unique
17:41:23  <TrueBrain> it misses a constraint
17:41:28  <TrueBrain> maybe that is more clear to understand?
17:42:06  <TrueBrain> I tried to write all events to send just enough information, that you can uniquely identify an event
17:42:20  <TrueBrain> a production change, you know which industry changed; there can be no doubt about it
17:42:30  <TrueBrain> you get what I mean now?
17:42:39  <Rubidium> actually, that may very well be an previous industry

17:43:08  <TrueBrain> but, to make it easier: lets assume I read my events as soon as they arrive
17:43:12  <Rubidium> and I reckon you get a vehicle ID with the vehicle old age event just like you only get an industry ID with the new industry event
17:44:07  <TrueBrain> but we never send 2 events for the same industry ID ;)
17:44:14  * Rubidium wonders what the difference is between: AIIndustry.GetLocation(event.GetIndustryID()) and AIVehicle.GetAgeLeft(event.GetVehicleID())
17:44:45  <TrueBrain> the industry-open / industrID event is unique, in the sense .. ugh, I have been over this :P
17:44:51  <TrueBrain> dammit, I run out of ways to explain this :)
17:45:21  <TrueBrain> take the crash event
17:45:27  <TrueBrain> would you say the crash_site parameter is unneeded?
17:45:31  <TrueBrain> as you can ask the vehicle where it is?
17:45:31  <Rubidium> if you read the event queue immediately the vehicle age event is unique as well
17:46:03  <TrueBrain> okay, let me try this differently ..
17:46:07  <TrueBrain> if you remove all silly raceconditions
17:46:11  <Rubidium> no, by the time you read the queue the vehicle might be gone. And it might be hindsight that the same happens with most other events
17:46:12  <TrueBrain> like industry open / close / open under the same ID
17:46:14  <TrueBrain> silly stuff like that
17:46:27  <TrueBrain> if we assume that you are "quick" enough to be in time to read industry data like that
17:46:42  <TrueBrain> in that assumption, all current events are identifyable by their parameters
17:46:44  <TrueBrain> right?
17:46:57  <Rubidium> yes
17:47:06  <TrueBrain> now we have this vehicle-old event
17:47:24  <TrueBrain> if the event arrives, as script, you miss a vital piece of information
17:47:28  <TrueBrain> a crash event, happens when you crashed
17:47:33  <TrueBrain> industry open, when you open an industry
17:47:38  <TrueBrain> vehicle-old .. well .. -1 year, 0 year, N years ..
17:47:42  <TrueBrain> it can be a wide variaty of things
17:47:50  <TrueBrain> you see the subtle difference here?
17:48:20  <Rubidium> if you are "quick" enough you get that info with GetAgeLeft
17:48:23  *** Fremen [] has joined #openttd
17:48:42  <TrueBrain> the main difference is, the "quick" is in other magnitudes here
17:48:57  <TrueBrain> I personally would find it rather unclear to receive a vehicle-old, which might be any of the above cases
17:48:59  <TrueBrain> I have no clue which
17:49:04  <TrueBrain> where industry-open is .. well ...
17:49:06  <TrueBrain> duh :P
17:49:18  <TrueBrain> that said, I do agree that industry-open should also get IndustryType as parameter
17:50:03  <TrueBrain> in all cases, I think Yexo has a long enough backlog to laugh his ass off ;)
17:50:15  <Rubidium> but does it matter? If you handle the queue after a year and you want to use the event to renew vehicles that are 5 years overdue. Do you use the "5" value of your proposed event, or the GetAgeLeft of the moment you read/handle the event?
17:50:38  <Rubidium> because in the former case you renew them at over due age 6
17:50:54  <TrueBrain> I agree with that; my issue is that the event is unclear
17:50:55  <Rubidium> IMO AIVehicleLost is much more troublesome
17:51:02  <TrueBrain> it becomes this grey area effect
17:51:13  <TrueBrain> and from a lazy-point-of-view, a parameter iseasiest
17:51:13  <Rubidium> as that lovely even can easily be read when the vehicle is not lost at all
17:51:27  <TrueBrain> the Lost one is annoying even as player
17:51:33  <TrueBrain> too often I get that years after the vehicle got lost
17:51:36  <TrueBrain> as my news is backlogged :P
17:51:54  <TrueBrain> the old-event, I see more as: I want to trigger at 2 years, and don't want to do any complex blabla :)
17:52:02  <Rubidium> I rather would like to avoid adding parameters to the events as all it does is make the queue larger (in memory) when the queue isn't read at all
17:52:14  <TrueBrain> boo-fucking-hoo
17:52:20  <TrueBrain> lets not worry about 8 bytes more or less please :D
17:52:24  <TrueBrain> you wanted to add the date ;)
17:52:29  <TrueBrain> now that consumes memory :P
17:52:34  <Rubidium> yes, so I can trash old events
17:52:37  *** Rhamphoryncus [] has joined #openttd
17:52:38  <TrueBrain> don't start with the memory argument :)
17:52:43  <TrueBrain> it is a non-issue
17:52:49  <TrueBrain> how much memory does the map take?
17:52:52  <TrueBrain> how much does a Squirrel VM take?
17:52:58  <TrueBrain> one parameter more or less won't show up :)
17:53:25  <Rubidium> one not, but it won't take long to add even more "might be useful" parameters
17:53:39  <TrueBrain> seriously, even with 10 parameters each event
17:53:41  <TrueBrain> it is a non-issue :)
17:53:48  <Rubidium> because is much more complex than
17:54:39  <TrueBrain> anyway, if anything I much rather have N events than one, per vehicle
17:54:45  <Rubidium> the problem with the events is that there is NO maximum bound on the amount in the queue, so for AIs that don't care about events it is a (massive) memory leak
17:54:50  <TrueBrain> and to make them somewhat unique in the queue, I would add a year parameter
17:54:56  <TrueBrain> feel free to disagree :D
17:55:06  <Fremen> aha server is running for testing, incredibly easy and light in cpu
17:55:07  <TrueBrain> that is a completely different problem :)
17:55:13  <TrueBrain> on which I do agree btw, and it shoudl be fixed :)
17:56:13  <Muxy> ok men, now let's place in 2 cases : competitive AI and Lazy AI
17:56:31  <Muxy> in a competitive way, the best is to replace vehicle asap, right ?
17:56:48  <TrueBrain> not really
17:56:54  <TrueBrain> I would replace them a bit later, depending on my wallet
17:56:59  <TrueBrain> sure, it is good for standing
17:57:03  <TrueBrain> but replacing them after 2 years is even better
17:57:10  <TrueBrain> so competitive, if I had the money, I would replace them every 2 years
17:57:12  <Muxy> hum yes, you reached the point
17:57:25  <TrueBrain> there are so many variables there
17:57:28  <Muxy> i forget the money point
17:57:31  <TrueBrain> you cannot say: this should be done, or this
17:57:37  <TrueBrain> it is up to the writer of an AI
17:58:02  <TrueBrain> (it is why the NoAI framework doesn't do anything for you :P)
17:58:07  <Rubidium> so... add the date to the event, add a GetAgeLeft to the AIVehicleAncientEvent that does Vehicle.AgeLeft(ev.GetVEhicleID())-current_date+ev.GetDate()
17:58:09  <Muxy> ok, that's why i changed the poll with another option
17:58:23  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: I guess that would work too, yes
17:58:33  <TrueBrain> and I would add a "max-age-of-event" setting
17:58:37  <TrueBrain> defaulted like 5 years
17:58:39  <Muxy> and the parameter would be usefull to know how many years it remain before lifetime
17:58:39  <TrueBrain> removing events older
17:58:54  <Rubidium> (except when the vehicle is removed)
17:59:13  <TrueBrain> it does leave the race conditions of industry-open, industry-close
17:59:21  *** andythenorth [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
17:59:33  <Muxy> the event can be triggered every year from begining, indicating remaining year from life-time
17:59:35  *** andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
17:59:49  <TrueBrain> Muxy: can a player do that?
17:59:50  <Muxy> then the AI choose when its the best moment to replace it
18:00:06  <Muxy> do what ?
18:00:15  <TrueBrain> get an event from the beginngn of a vehicle
18:00:16  <Muxy> checking its vehicle list every year ?
18:00:26  <Muxy> or periodically ?
18:00:40  <TrueBrain> no, by events (news-items, etc)
18:00:49  <TrueBrain> the basic rule always applies: AIs can only get what players get too
18:00:52  <Muxy> ah
18:00:56  <TrueBrain> an AI can poll the vehicle list every year too
18:01:08  <Muxy> yes but cpu consuming
18:01:14  <TrueBrain> the rule might sound a bit bitchy etc, but it keeps AIs fair
18:01:21  <TrueBrain> they can never cheat, as they can never do anything a player can't
18:01:37  <Muxy> but if you say : AI should do what players can do...
18:01:47  <glx> AI cpu usage is limited anyway
18:02:04  <Muxy> how many vehicle a player can build in a finite period of time ?
18:02:16  <TrueBrain> 1 every tick
18:02:18  <TrueBrain> as many as an AI can
18:02:42  <Muxy> by duplicating vehicle, yes
18:02:54  <Muxy> but with other station list, ...
18:03:49  <TrueBrain> streching ... okay, let me rephrase: an AI never receives or can obtain information in a way a player cannot
18:04:55  <Rubidium> actually, then we should trash events much sooner ;)
18:05:05  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: sometimes I get events years after event :P
18:05:10  <TrueBrain> I like those popups
18:05:12  <TrueBrain> and they are SLOW :P
18:05:47  <Rubidium> events for uses have a "best use before" date

19:37:59  <bolli> apparently it doesn't work...

19:39:21  <Fremen> 600
19:39:33  <Fremen> too low? standard is 500
19:39:37  <bolli> hmm
19:39:53  <bolli> put it to something like 4k to test it? :p
19:40:19  <Fremen> aight :p

19:41:19  <bolli> although, that could be because I'm used to cloud server upload speeds...
19:42:08  <Fremen> shouldn't be to slow but it's a huge map
19:42:14  <Fremen> too*
19:42:27  <bolli> hmm
19:42:47  <bolli> I have mine set to 32000, so thats probably why I don't have any issues with it any more...
19:42:58  <Fremen> can connect to it from other pc but yeah local I guess
