08:00:20  <Nat_aS> HAPPY NEW YEAR PST!
08:06:10  <andythenorth> :)
08:10:32  <V453000> hm, is there any way to return the feature where cloning a vehicle opens the window of that vehicle?
08:14:33  <andythenorth> clone from the vehicle, not the depot?
08:14:40  <andythenorth> I'm in 2 minds about this change :P
08:16:09  <V453000> you cant clone so fast through depot
08:16:17  <V453000> you need at least one vehicle open
08:17:28  <V453000> and since you could just clone up to 20 trains or lock the depot/one train windows and clone endlessly .... the current solution isnt really helping anything, you just have to open that one train manually
08:19:49  <andythenorth> because depot clone is more clicks / target acquisition?
08:20:36  <andythenorth> so the really efficient, but totally hard to use behaviour: first clone opens a vehicle window, subsequent clones don't :P
08:20:39  <V453000> mainly the target acquisition
08:21:08  <V453000> yes that would be absolutely best :D

08:51:34  <Snail> I see :) but still dark here ;)
08:51:46  <planetmaker> open your eyes? ;-)
08:52:14  <Snail> already opened :p
08:54:28  <V453000> that could be a problem

13:22:34  <Pikka> no it didnt
13:23:53  <andythenorth> are you sure?
13:24:07  <andythenorth> what does 2013 bring for pikkas?
13:24:41  <Pikka> werk, or sommat like that
13:24:55  <andythenorth> man has to eat
13:24:58  <andythenorth> and buy catfood
13:25:01  <andythenorth> and scuddles food
13:25:09  <andythenorth> or is scuddles slef-supporint
13:25:11  <andythenorth> ?
13:26:46  <Pikka> hard to tell
13:33:40  * andythenorth has lego to make
13:33:49  <andythenorth> but has been thinking about a GS for pikka industries
13:33:53  <andythenorth> quite a simple one
13:33:57  <andythenorth> dunno how to write it :P
13:34:58  *** RavingManiac [~RavingMan@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:35:40  <Pikka> eh
13:36:02  <Pikka> let me write the industries first :)
13:36:32  <andythenorth> TaI will have the same resource limit / closure stuff?
13:37:13  <Pikka> similar
13:37:52  <Pikka> similar concept, very different implementation
13:41:14  <andythenorth> hmm
13:41:23  <andythenorth> so TaI isn't good for some kind of mass-cargo goal
13:41:36  <andythenorth> maybe something simple, like 'keep industries x y and z alive for 100 years'
13:41:45  <Pikka> I don't know
13:41:47  <andythenorth> and 'grow towns a b and c to some amount'
13:44:24  <andythenorth> herp, or people like me should just use a bit more imagination when playing
13:44:32  <andythenorth> ttd has always been a bit of a sandbox
13:45:03  <Pikka> :)
13:45:33  * drac_boy treats it like a real transport game at times ;)
13:47:02  <V453000> "a bit"

13:57:51  <andythenorth> one of you is an imposter
13:58:18  <Pokka> perhaps

13:59:48  <andythenorth> puts me all topsy turvy
13:59:53  <drac_boy> heh heh
14:00:01  <andythenorth> anybody want to talk about trains?
14:00:05  <andythenorth> drac_boy probably does ;)
14:00:12  * drac_boy points you to flygon too
14:00:13  <Pikka> I wouldn't be surprised
14:00:33  <drac_boy> flygon always has these crazy stories about austrlia and crappy train runnings
14:00:33  <Flygon> Hi
14:00:35  <drac_boy> :P
14:00:38  <Flygon> I'm Victorian
14:00:43  <Flygon> I think 1600mm is brilliant
14:00:51  <Flygon> And find that two decks is the work of the devil
14:00:58  <Flygon> Also, Trams are the best thing since sliced bread
14:01:27  <Flygon> You might have seen our Trams exported to Edmonton, Seattle, San Francisco, as well as a few other American cities
14:01:41  <Kjetil> I hate Trams :P
14:01:51  <Flygon> And it makes me upset and angry there's no Aussie Tram GRF
14:02:01  <Flygon> Kjetil, you're an evil New South Welshmen
14:02:07  <Flygon> And I can say that legitemately
14:02:13  *** Zuu [] has joined #openttd
14:02:14  <Flygon> Because I'm half-New South Welsh
14:03:00  <Kjetil> MOHAHAHAH

14:05:37  <Flygon> Japanese rail is weird...
14:05:45  <Flygon> It looks so... industrial
14:05:54  <Flygon> Even the drawings, going by Pixiv
14:06:12  <Flygon> I upload a drawing of a Victorian Railways T-class... and, god
14:06:23  <Flygon> It looks nothing like anything else on the site
14:06:40  <Flygon> This is despite the T-class being a box on wheels
14:08:17  <Pikka> yes indeedy, tosaden is the best den.
14:09:17  <drac_boy> box on wheels = Toaster?
14:09:19  <drac_boy> heh heh
14:09:20  <Flygon> I've never seen such a flat-faced tram...
14:09:31  <Flygon> drac_boy: It actually does resemble a toaster
14:09:59  <Flygon> My cruddy drawing :P
14:10:05  <drac_boy> flygon thats what they called similar things in europe and I think even uk as well
14:10:28  <Flygon> Realistic toaster
14:11:03  <Flygon> Pikka: I keep thinking you're Australia @_@"
14:12:18  <drac_boy> flygon btw I don't know which one it is yet but there was a diesel locomotive in uk named Shredder
14:12:26  <Flygon> Why so?
14:12:27  <drac_boy> apparently that was what the silly exhaust sounded like
14:12:33  <drac_boy> shredding all the times :)
14:12:34  <Flygon> Was it a Turt-
14:12:35  <Flygon> I see
14:13:17  <Flygon> I search for 'Melbourne Tram' in YouTube... get instructions for how to drive around Trams
14:13:52  <Flygon> Probably because peeps forget you can't U-turn around a Tram track without looking at the tracks
14:14:37  <Flygon> To be fair, one thing I failed in my driving test was the tram bit
14:14:46  <FLHerne> drac_boy: We also have Choppers, Tractors and Whistlers :-)
14:15:02  <drac_boy> ah its class 33 apparently
14:15:24  <FLHerne> Interesting, I haven't heard that one before :P
14:15:27  <andythenorth> and gronks and sheds
14:15:35  <FLHerne> Everyone I know calls them Cromptons
14:15:37  <andythenorth> and tufs
14:15:40  <andythenorth> tugs *
14:15:48  <andythenorth> bones
14:15:50  <drac_boy> flherne the one I don't always get is 'skates' .. if they were so unreliable that they had to be used in pairs why did they even build them? :P
14:16:04  <drac_boy> gronks? let me guess, thats class 09?
14:16:18  <andythenorth> and 08
14:16:24  <Pikka> 09 is a supergronk
14:16:24  <drac_boy> gronk....gronk!
14:16:25  <FLHerne> andythenorth: And Duffs and Bodysnatchers and Rats and McRats :P
14:16:26  <drac_boy> silly name :p
14:16:34  <Flygon> I feel terrible. I'm actually learning from this video. How DID I get my license?
14:16:39  <Flygon>
14:16:49  <drac_boy> FLHerne bodysnatchers? 0_o
14:17:39  <FLHerne> drac_boy: 57s. They basically took the bodyshell and bogies from 47s, stripped out the innards, and put new engines in
14:17:49  <Pikka> no they didn't
14:17:54  <Pikka> they put old engines in :)
14:18:15  <andythenorth> hoovers
14:18:18  <FLHerne> Pikka: New engines for the class, anyway
14:18:19  <andythenorth> gridirons
14:18:31  <drac_boy> flherne that sounds like some of the usa diesel locomotives that had extra letterings .. like eg GP9M instead of GP9 ... new engine, sometimes altered body as well
14:18:56  <drac_boy> andythenorth hoovers? as in "nothing sucks like it!" classic ads? :P
14:19:14  <drac_boy> the keyword being 'suck' is the other definition .. not that its up-to-no-good
14:21:17  <andythenorth> so wtf shall I do about FISH 2
14:21:21  <andythenorth> which is a bit of a shambles
14:21:36  *** Pensacola [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
14:21:42  <Pikka> redesign it from the ground up, or the water up if you prefer
14:21:49  <Pikka> you have the graphics, which is the tedious bit :)
14:22:00  <andythenorth> I already did that once :P
14:22:10  <andythenorth> then I started getting new graphics contributions :P
14:22:32  <Pikka> why do you still have all these 1870 intros then? :P
14:22:42  <Flygon> 1870 is a tad confusing
14:22:43  <andythenorth> yeah that :)
14:22:47  <Pikka> I think fish2 is alright
14:23:05  <andythenorth> ah I've figured out what's bugging me
14:23:11  <Pikka> but needs more smallish passenger vessels, early on
14:23:13  <Flygon> Also, we need a Meditteranian FISH... for 1000BC to 500AD
14:23:22  <Pikka> ?
14:23:27  <Flygon> Bronzepunk OpenTTD!
14:23:32  <andythenorth> I was thinking of redesigining it to accomodate all the contributions promised
14:23:38  <andythenorth> but then I might not get the contributions...
14:23:47  <andythenorth> a sprite in the hand is worth two in the...
14:23:50  <andythenorth> you get the idea
14:23:52  <Pikka> yes
14:24:03  <Flygon> It's a shame a good artist is hard to find
14:24:48  <andythenorth> has anyone got a grf to v3?
14:24:49  <drac_boy> flygon depends which kind of sprites you want done? :)
14:25:15  <Flygon> drac_boy: Personally. Awstrawian Trains
14:25:19  <V453000> did I miss a train discussion?
14:25:19  <Flygon> :p
14:25:22  <andythenorth> what version is AV8?
14:25:23  <drac_boy> flygon heh
14:25:47  <Pikka> andythenorth, gabe newell syndrome
14:25:54  <Pikka> an inability to count to 3 :)
14:26:19  <Flygon> Problem is, all Australian trains look the same. We based designs off each other's designs... it's basically like breeding a single family of rabbits with each other for 40 years, and all you end up with is the same rabbits
14:27:50  <V453000> Trains change their power based on their mood. Your argument is invalid :D
14:28:06  <Pikka> otoh, we could take the firefox route and increment the major version number 8 times in 3 months, after not changing it for 3 years.
14:28:43  <andythenorth> yair
14:28:43  <Pikka> FISH17!
14:29:11  <Flygon> Pikka, double that 17, and you have the best FISH :)
14:30:03  <andythenorth> so long
14:30:05  <andythenorth> and thanks for
14:30:49  * drac_boy thinks I am at something like 0.alpha-1 version or something :P
14:31:03  <Pikka> you mean there's a grf, drac_boy?
14:31:28  <andythenorth> o_O
14:31:33  <drac_boy> useless individual-locos ones? :>
14:31:34  <andythenorth> what is it about anyway?
14:32:18  <drac_boy> that reminds me....should it be 0.alpha-1 or 0.1-alpha? :P
14:32:24  <andythenorth> doesn't matter
14:32:34  <andythenorth> bikeshedding
14:32:57  <andythenorth> ;)
14:33:41  <andythenorth> who's making sugarcane railways?
14:33:43  <andythenorth> someone should
14:33:51  <Pikka> no they shouldn't
14:33:59  <drac_boy> it already exists now andythenorth
14:34:01  <andythenorth> are we doing pantomine?
14:34:13  <andythenorth> where does it exist?
14:34:37  <Pikka> well, when pineappling I appraised cane trains
14:34:41  <Pikka> and decided, nope
14:34:50  <drac_boy> HEQS ... although if you were looking for the specific wagons that look like oversized boxes on 2 axles loaded high up with sugar canes I don't think that exists yt
14:34:54  <V453000> slug slime trail rails are absolutely necessary andythenorth
14:36:03  <andythenorth> Pikka: because boring?
14:36:42  <Pikka> yes.  also they operate "within" an industry, rather than between them
14:37:01  <andythenorth> hrm, not if you have FIRS :P
14:37:10  <andythenorth> not arguing though
14:37:13  <Pikka> :)
14:37:40  <Pikka> true, I could have made cane farms and mills as seperate industries
14:38:21  <Pikka> but since cane is a very localised product - unlike wheat in the default industries - and mills are only located in the centre of cane-growing areas, it made more sense to just make a mill surrounded by fields
14:38:37  <Pikka> from a pineapple point of view
14:38:42  <andythenorth> also slow
14:38:44  <drac_boy> pikka I ran into the same thing with certain industries I was looking up too
14:40:32  <Pikka> new file, tai_industry2.nfo D:
14:40:51  <Pikka> from the ground up, andythenorth ;)
14:40:54  <V453000> :D
14:41:16  <drac_boy> that reminds me, is there any limit to number of industry types or its only more or less limited by map sizes?
14:42:00  <Alberth> drac_boy: yes
14:42:06  <Flygon> Night
14:42:25  <drac_boy> bye flygon
14:42:33  <drac_boy> alberth map size then?
14:42:38  <Flygon> See ya, dracy~
14:42:44  <Pikka> 64, drac_boy
14:43:01  <Pikka> I remember it being 37, goes to show how long it's been since I've done industries :)
14:43:25  <drac_boy> even 37 sounds a bit like a lot especially if theres several of each one
14:43:27  <drac_boy> heh
14:43:39  <Alberth> static const IndustryType NUM_INDUSTRYTYPES      = 64;                ///< total number of industries, new and old
14:43:46  <Pikka> how many are in FIRS? :)
14:44:13  <Pikka> I know whatever mb and george's industry set was called got to 37 very quickly
14:44:20  <Pikka> ECS
14:45:21  <drac_boy> I'm at 28 but have three marked to be deleted soon tho. not sure if there'll even be more
14:45:33  <Alberth> Pikka: I have 58 in my head, but I don't know how accurate that is
14:45:48  <Pikka> :)
14:46:15  <Alberth> andy added and removed many industries :)
14:46:30  <Pikka> as a small map player, less is more :)
14:46:51  <Pikka> if you have 64 industry types, you're not going to get more than one of each on the map...
14:47:02  <drac_boy> pikka heh I need to fit 256x256 by default anyway :P  nothing stopping from a decent larger map too tho
14:47:22  <Alberth> FIRS is not designed for small maps, although having one of each type is fun to play one time :)
14:47:31  <Pikka> my usual game settings are 256*, low towns, normal industries, so...
14:47:46  *** |Jeroen| [] has quit [Quit: oO]
14:48:12  <Alberth> that should work, small is smaller than 256**2
14:48:41  <Alberth> I once tried a 64**2 map with FIRS, that was crowded :)
14:48:45  <Pikka> :]
14:49:21  <Alberth> I did most transport with trucks
14:49:39  <andythenorth>
14:49:56  <andythenorth> ^ has counts of industry and cargos
14:50:04  <Alberth> hmm, off by 9 :)
14:50:33  *** Markavian` [] has joined #openttd
14:50:48  <Pikka> hmm
14:50:55  <Pikka> time to make spreadsheets D;
14:51:02  <andythenorth> urgh
14:51:08  <andythenorth> FIRS never had a spreadsheet :)
14:51:12  <andythenorth> I had concept art instead :P
14:51:15  <Pikka> spreadsheets are fun!
14:51:46  <Pikka> they mean when I make things like those production curves, I don't need to know what I'm doing!  I just plug in random numbers til it looks right :)
14:51:58  * drac_boy has two large .gnumeric files thank you -_-
14:52:01  <drac_boy> heh
14:52:07  <drac_boy> random.. :p
14:53:20  <andythenorth> he
14:53:27  <andythenorth> I could make a spreadsheet from FIRS :P
14:53:58  <FLHerne> drac_boy: Why Gnumeric? I never had much success with that :P
14:54:21  <andythenorth> BANDIT has a spreadsheet, and look what happened to that ;)
14:54:52  <Alberth> a Python ate it? :)
14:55:50  *** Markavian [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
14:56:34  <andythenorth> kinda
14:57:01  <andythenorth> certainly it never  shipped ;)
14:58:21  <Pikka> andythenorth, fertiliser plant, y/n?
14:59:14  <drac_boy> FLHerne well its the only thing thats dated 'recent' otherwise it would have to be clarisworks which I doubt the forum would understand anyway
15:00:41  <FLHerne> drac_boy: Ludicrously outdated OS?
15:00:52  <drac_boy> nope
15:01:30  <FLHerne> Clarisworks hasn't even existed since about 2000, has it...?
15:01:39  * FLHerne used to use it
15:02:03  <drac_boy> FLHerne my actual point was, its only gnumeric for shared sheets ;)
15:04:30  <andythenorth> Pikka: either invent a new way to increase production, or include fertiliser
15:04:32  <drac_boy> at least non-sheet things are too easy to share when plain text is just plain text :P
15:04:40  <andythenorth> the default ttd production mechanic is *so* tedious
15:04:48  <Pikka> andythenorth, both :)
15:04:51  <andythenorth> and leads to queues of maglevs
15:05:51  <Pikka> hmm
15:05:54  <Pikka> plastic -> chemicals
15:06:08  <Pikka> by which I mean I replace plastic in the set with chemicals
15:06:30  <drac_boy> yeah CHEM is generic so its not bad .. plastic is a bit too specific
15:06:51  <drac_boy> not to mention you could use CHEM to treat fruits ... to produce feed .. etc etc
15:07:11  <drac_boy> although I think one of the industry vector used 'refined oil' too
15:07:27  <Pikka> maybe I won't, then :)
15:07:34  <drac_boy> why not? :P
15:07:48  <Pikka> I dunno, you just have a way of putting me off the idea
15:08:00  <drac_boy> heh what do you even use plastics for tho?
15:08:07  <drac_boy> to make goods? that doesn't sound useful of oilwells

15:23:16  <andythenorth> Pikka: chemicals > plastic
15:23:20  <andythenorth> two legs > four legs
15:23:26  <andythenorth> also there is vehicle set support :P
15:23:35  <Pikka> eh
15:23:44  <Pikka> maybe
15:23:52  <andythenorth> but chemicals have a nasty habit
15:23:57  <andythenorth> of getting accepted all over the place
15:24:05  <Pikka> yes, that's the problem :)
15:24:11  <andythenorth> erp +1
15:24:20  <Pikka> do food processing plants accept chemicals? :)
15:24:45  <drac_boy> well at least I can let my train drop it off more or less anywhere its running rather than having to make a transfer and hope that something else will forward it :)
15:24:46  <andythenorth> I liked the idea of fertiliser from nothing
15:24:50  <Pikka> is soylent purple chemicals?
15:24:51  <andythenorth> that seemed more pikka-ish
15:24:57  <Pikka> :)
15:25:21  <andythenorth> herm
15:28:25  <V453000> some vehicle sets support even plastic as secondary :P

15:28:50  *** TrueBrain [] has quit [Quit: reboot]
15:29:54  <Pikka> so
15:30:01  <Pikka> what do I call the industry that processes grain? :)
15:30:32  <Pikka> it may variously be a flour mill, brewery, bakery etc.
15:30:43  <andythenorth> mill
15:30:48  <drac_boy> depends on what output it is
15:30:51  <drac_boy> :)
15:31:07  <Pikka> perhaps it can just be "food processing plant" ala TTD
15:31:17  <drac_boy> mm perhaps
15:31:40  <andythenorth> brewery!
15:31:48  <Pikka> andy!
15:31:53  <drac_boy> andythenorth only if it accepts glass and outputs food :P
15:31:54  <Pikka> it can be both or either, that's my point :P
15:32:03  <Pikka> one industry
15:32:05  <Pikka> accepts grain
15:32:10  <Pikka> produces food
15:32:23  <Pikka> may be a mill, brewery or bakery depending on whatever.
15:35:49  <andythenorth> not if produces beer
15:35:57  <andythenorth> do you get beer at your bakery? o_O
15:36:22  * andythenorth suspects that's possible down there
15:37:12  <andythenorth> I bailed and called it grain mill
15:37:17  <andythenorth> which is no good if it's maize :P
15:37:17  <drac_boy> about chemicals...
15:37:28  <drac_boy> I never could decide if sand>glass or sand+chemical>glass .. what you think?
15:37:31  *** TrueBrain [] has joined #openttd
15:38:48  <andythenorth> depends on the rest of your economy
15:39:04  <andythenorth> for gameplay, considering industries in isolation doesn't work
15:42:28  <drac_boy> mm well there's the sand open pit which is only good for glassworks atm. and the chemical plant ... not too sure about it since beside the glasswork theres only one other industry that maybe can use it
15:44:19  *** valhallasw [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:45:19  *** tycoondemon [] has joined #openttd
15:46:59  <Pikka> grain mill works
15:47:06  <Pikka> grain mill, type: brewery :)
15:47:21  <Pikka> probably better than calling it a Food Processing Plant, that will confuse people
15:47:55  <drac_boy> isn't it already called that in tropical default anyway?
15:48:07  <Pikka> that's why it will confuse people
15:48:08  <Eddi|zuHause> can you vary the industry name based on layout?
15:48:26  <Pikka> the meatworks looks more like (ie, exactly like) the tropical FPP ;)
15:49:01  <drac_boy> try the meat plant from railroad tycoon 2 then? the animal chute gives it away too :)
15:53:34  <Pikka> hmm
15:54:35  <Pikka> a callback
15:54:37  <Pikka> for newobjects
15:54:45  <Pikka> which places them on the map during map generation?
15:55:26  *** bolli [] has joined #openttd
15:55:28  * drac_boy is going for a little
15:55:32  *** drac_boy [] has left #openttd [I'm done being in this room!]
15:55:46  <Pikka> a little what?  I shudder to think.
16:05:30  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: can't vary industry name in minimap
16:05:37  <andythenorth> and it's an action 0 prop every afaict
16:05:40  <andythenorth> so no :)
16:06:04  <andythenorth> Pikka: not a cb, a probability prop, action 0
16:06:07  <andythenorth> two in fact
16:06:13  <Pikka> is it?
16:06:15  <andythenorth> probability during map gen, probability in game
16:06:17  <andythenorth> needed
16:06:25  <andythenorth> not done afaik
16:06:37  * andythenorth has read zero percent of newobject spec, so is guessing
16:06:38  <Pikka> meh, callbacks are better
16:06:41  <Pikka> callbacks are always better
16:06:47  <andythenorth> some agree, some disagree :P
16:06:52  <Eddi|zuHause> hijack the code that places transmitters/lighthouses
16:06:55  <Pikka> what does "probability" mean?
16:07:01  <andythenorth> when I propose one, I get yelled at by people who like the other :P
16:07:17  <andythenorth> urgh, probability
16:07:22  <Pikka> with a callback, I can have one per town
16:07:24  <Pikka> or one per map
16:07:27  <Pikka> or needle nardle noo
16:07:33  <andythenorth> yeah I'm convinced
16:07:57  <andythenorth> how does openttd know to try and build this object?
16:08:02  *** Alberth [] has left #openttd []
16:09:34  <Pikka> perhaps newobjects have a special "cargo" in action 3 for the map generation callback?
16:10:16  <Pikka> that's for whoever's actually programming it to work out
16:10:18  <Pikka> and that ain't me :)
16:13:26  <Pikka> how's that?
16:20:10  <Pikka> one per town, one per map, only build on mountains, only build near coastlines, only build etc etc :]
16:20:57  <Pikka> although I don't think we have all the necessary variables yet ;)
16:23:07  <andythenorth> hrm
16:23:12  <andythenorth> I want a version that runs during game
16:23:28  <Pikka> sure
16:23:32  <andythenorth> it would look for industries :P
16:23:38  <andythenorth> and plant overbuildable fields
16:23:40  <Pikka> maybe it could run at the beginning of the month, or year, or whatever :]
16:23:44  <andythenorth> monthly is enough
16:23:49  <andythenorth> anyway biab
16:23:52  <Pikka> okay
16:24:48  <Pikka> you need to invent overbuildable newobjects, though :)

17:46:02  <andythenorth> but then if everything was balanced, it might be kind of flat :P

17:50:09  <andythenorth> Pikka: I suspect that some FIRS industries only exist as an excuse to include certain vehicle types in sets
17:50:16  <andythenorth> scrap yard might be one of them :P
17:50:20  <Pikka> :]
17:50:21  <andythenorth> where are those scrap wagons anyway?
17:50:28  <Pikka> they should be there
17:50:35  <Pikka> are they not there?
17:50:39  <Rubidium> bolli: type content help, read carefully and then tell us what you think you have done wrong ;)
17:50:49  <andythenorth> they're probably there
17:50:54  <Pikka> they'll only appear if scrap is defined, and tbh I don't think I ever really tested them
17:50:59  <Pikka> I just assumed I did it right :)
17:51:10  <bolli> aha
17:51:19  <andythenorth> ah
17:51:23  <bolli> Content Upgrade All? :p
17:51:30  <andythenorth> probably a victim of the great 'cargo label change war' of 2011
17:51:48  <andythenorth> scrap changed, due to community-sized brainwobbles

19:03:33  <Ammler> it does (yet) not support dialects
19:03:42  <__ln__> switzerland is a bit like new zealand; has mountains and is located next to a country with kangaroos
19:03:55  <Ammler> hehe
19:07:55  <Ammler> and we have a very good sea sailing team
19:10:03  <Rubidium> yeah, nobody beat them on any of the seas surrounding Switzerland
19:14:14  <Ammler> afaik they still also lead the americas cup and similar

19:24:08  <Pikka> do I?
19:24:13  <andythenorth> I think so
19:24:16  <andythenorth> I had some too :P
19:24:52  <andythenorth> you get livery backchat, I got more detail about sugarcane than I can usefully enjoy :P
19:25:36  <Pikka> you just have to assess what level of response will cause them to shut up

20:08:12  <Superuser> <-- the translation is, literally, 'creation of non-moveables'
20:08:38  <Superuser> what does 'Object generation' actually do? I've never gotten into this generation business in this depth
20:09:11  <planetmaker> distribute objects on the map. Which are un-movable light houses and transmitters
20:09:22  <planetmaker> (and also undestructible)
20:09:40  <Superuser> ok.jpg
20:09:49  <Superuser> also you really need to improve lighthouse placement, lol

20:19:23  <andythenorth> Pikka: wot farm? o_O
20:19:49  <Pikka> farms which produce mainly livestock accept grain
20:20:00  <andythenorth> I wanted to do that
20:20:02  <andythenorth> can't
20:20:06  <andythenorth> for reasons I forget
20:20:08  <andythenorth> you should
20:20:12  <Pikka> I shall
20:20:20  <andythenorth> you should do all the good ideas that don't fit in my set :P
20:20:24  <Pikka> example industry texts coming up
20:20:28  <andythenorth> because not all things fit in one box :P
20:20:31  <Pikka> trying to decide if I can bother colour coding the text
20:20:49  <andythenorth> I wouldn't :P
20:20:52  <andythenorth> unless I did
20:20:52  <Pikka> it will be easier to read in-game thanks to the colour coding
20:24:39  <andythenorth> I should stop building lego
20:24:42  <andythenorth> and work on FIRS
20:24:55  <Pikka> maybe
20:25:38  <peter1138> hi
20:25:56  <andythenorth> hi
20:25:59  <Pikka> hallo peter
20:27:20  <andythenorth> is roadtypes done yet? o_0
20:27:29  <Pikka> good question!
20:28:24  <andythenorth> we are here slaving over hot newgrfs, and all you are doing is providing us free server space, lol, and maybe some multistop docks :P
20:28:31  <andythenorth> where's the gratitude I say
20:29:56  <V453000> I just caused a desync and nml error with just one awesome newgrf feature so I am silent :D
20:30:52  <andythenorth> have a cookie
20:31:09  <Pikka> hm
20:31:16  <Pikka> novel length indeed
20:31:27  <Pikka>
20:31:58  <andythenorth> did you go to far? o_O
20:32:53  <Pikka> is it?
20:33:03  <andythenorth> let's see
20:33:34  <andythenorth> I'd recommend it for small maps
20:33:40  <andythenorth> with only a few of each industry
20:33:44  <andythenorth> less so on bigger
20:33:48  *** drac_boy [] has joined #openttd
20:33:49  <Pikka> well
20:33:51  <drac_boy> hi
20:34:06  <andythenorth> maybe you should force the issue, to prevent player whining
20:34:14  <andythenorth> limit the number of types per game :P
20:34:22  <Pikka> part of the point of this is that the industries are self-regulating as far as production goes
20:34:46  <Pikka> so, in theory, it should actually be /better/ for large fire-and-forget type maps than "random" production changes
20:35:00  <andythenorth> what about the 5 year plans?
20:35:15  <andythenorth> do I need to engage with that and go buy more double headed A4s or whatever?
20:35:50  <Pikka> the industries only make decisions (only change production targets, modes, do upgrades) every 5 years
20:35:54  <Superuser> a new bug has been reported!
20:35:58  <Superuser> by me
20:36:18  <andythenorth> 5 years passes quickly...
20:36:23  <andythenorth> especially with news messages off :P
20:36:27  <Pikka> :)
20:36:34  <Pikka> but if you do buy more double headed a4s
20:36:46  <Pikka> and you max out the stockpiles, etc
20:37:01  <Pikka> the industry will react by changing their future plan to increase production, if possible
20:37:01  <andythenorth> so you have something here like contracts - i.e. production limits?
20:37:05  <andythenorth> ah
20:37:06  <andythenorth> ok
20:37:26  <Pikka> at the end of each 5 years, the "future plans" becomes the "5-year plan"
20:37:37  <Superuser> this sounds awfully Stalinist
20:37:45  <andythenorth> so it's relatively stable in your communist utopia?
20:37:45  <Pikka> during the 5 years, the "future plans" change to reflect what's happening to the industry
20:38:18  <Pikka> I may change the wording of "5-year plan", actually
20:38:32  <Pikka> because it makes it sound like what's planned for the future, instead of what's happening now
20:38:36  <Pikka> hence your confusion :)
20:39:45  <andythenorth> 'current plan'
20:39:49  <andythenorth> 'current operating model'
20:39:50  <Pikka> yes
20:39:54  <andythenorth> 'current lolplan'
20:41:08  <andythenorth> well it all sounds good
20:41:15  <andythenorth> proof of pudding is in eating etc
20:41:24  <andythenorth> a lesson that will not be lost on drac_boy sometime ;)
20:41:31  <Pikka> :)
20:43:40  <Pikka> there
20:43:40  <drac_boy> what you mean andythenorth?
20:44:03  <andythenorth> simply an innocent aside drac_boy :)
20:45:20  <andythenorth> let's talk about it again when you ship
20:45:35  * andythenorth is speaking as someone who has rebuilt several grfs several times after play-testing
20:48:14  <andythenorth> you have to walk a mile in your own shoes first :)
20:48:22  * andythenorth should get a FB page for all these little sayings
20:48:27  <andythenorth> maybe motivational posters
20:49:03  * andythenorth should probably go back to work and do useful things :P
20:49:08  <andythenorth> holiday time is over
20:51:52  * drac_boy would had just ignored it anyway
20:52:29  <andythenorth> :)
20:54:02  <andythenorth> drac_boy: got a repo yet?  Or at least backups?
20:54:09  <andythenorth> too many projects died due to loss of files :P

21:00:23  <andythenorth> Pikka: will your industry text fit in say 800x600 screen?
21:01:02  <andythenorth> also do you completely shaft AI?  Or can it work out what cargos are needed?
21:09:05  <Pikka> I should think it shafts AI less than most
21:09:17  <Pikka> and I have no idea about 800x600
21:09:19  <Pikka> :)
21:14:14  <andythenorth> figured out docks?
21:14:40  <Pikka> nope.  I don't think I'm going to have them
21:15:48  <Pikka> feel like they might be a bit... hard to make interesting?
21:17:07  <andythenorth> yeah
21:17:25  <andythenorth> they only work for me where I need to cheat
21:17:34  <andythenorth> in economies with limited no. of industries
21:20:06  <andythenorth> but...Dan mocked up this
21:20:09  <andythenorth> meanwhiles

21:38:21  <andythenorth> drac_boy: that lets me guess your age :o
21:38:57  <peter1138> yeah well
21:38:59  <andythenorth> here's the one my kids have
21:39:01  <peter1138> lego's all wrong these days
21:39:18  <andythenorth> nah, it's gone all right again, just biggerer
21:39:22  <drac_boy> one thing I like is having one of these few canada-specific lego sets they had back then
21:39:28  <drac_boy> especially the canada post van
21:40:02  <Pikka> peter's one of those people who don't think it's right unless it's yellow.
21:40:37  <Pikka> and cuboid :)
21:40:42  <drac_boy> andythenorth the one thing I don't like is that weird not-so-gray gray they use
21:40:48  <peter1138> see, the mixer shouldn't be just one piece like that
21:40:54  <drac_boy> at least as long as original supplies are still easy to find on used market I'm ok for now
21:41:02  <peter1138> damn it
21:41:04  <peter1138> where's my lego
21:41:08  <andythenorth> bley
21:41:14  <andythenorth> also, the mixer is 2 parts :P
21:41:20  <drac_boy> yeah that andythenorth I keep forgetting what it was called
21:41:21  <andythenorth> and it has an internal helix
21:41:34  <andythenorth> so you can actually get 'cement' tiles to spiral out
21:41:39  <andythenorth> play value eh?
21:42:49  <peter1138> the play value of lego is building stuff
21:42:53  <drac_boy> andythenorth initially the canons used for the pirate ships were able to shoot these 1x1 black cylinder pieces ... but apparently safety overuled and it became one solid non-firing casing instead
21:43:14  <drac_boy> at least I actually have one used canon that can fire .. its a simple metal spring inside
21:43:18  <andythenorth> I have firing ones upstairs
21:43:20  <andythenorth> for definite
21:43:27  <andythenorth> also socker ball firing things
21:43:34  <drac_boy> mm you must had gotten the early ones :)
21:44:05  <drac_boy> interesting enough there were some recent technic set that used firing "punch rods" .. guess some things seem to change
21:44:33  <andythenorth> mine are from 2007 or so
21:45:03  <drac_boy> I just don't like where lego is heading with their trains already but....meh

21:45:57  <drac_boy> at least that tgv-looklike train set they released a while ago looks nice, classic rail axles too
21:46:11  <drac_boy> actually looks like an 'updated' version of the original set a long time ago

21:48:25  <drac_boy> only thing thats a bit annoying as it would seem is you have to buy two of the latter if you want to have a cab at both ends .. one box doesn't have double of the special cab pieces needed

21:51:14  <drac_boy> then again lego does seem to be making a lot of half-trains lately

21:55:49  <andythenorth> it's a terrible world drac_boy
21:58:05  <drac_boy> yeah
22:00:28  <drac_boy> apparently a lot of the 9V and RC trains just never shared much counterpart to any kind of real examples

23:28:31  <FLHerne> Zuu: I would like to be able to adjust the size of the goals ingame :-)
23:28:52  <Zuu> That is already possible
23:28:58  <Zuu> Just that zero is not an option.
23:28:59  <FLHerne> It is?
23:29:12  <Zuu> Help menu -> AI/Game script debug -> Settings
23:29:28  <FLHerne> Ah. Settings are under 'Debug'? :-)
23:29:31  <FLHerne> Thanks
23:29:56  <FLHerne> It seems not to like CargoDist/Daylength much :P
23:30:08  <FLHerne> Might need turning down quite a bit
23:30:30  <Zuu> I saw now that it is not possible to make changes in the AI/Game Script settings dialog in a running game. That is a bit silly as AIs/GSs can enable/disable in-game changing of individual settings.
23:31:39  <Zuu> So if the AI/GS author have enabled in-game changing of a parameter it is up to the AI/GS to not bail out if a user change it. :-)
23:32:28  <FLHerne> Zuu: Well, I just changed some in the debug thing. That should work?
23:32:52  <FLHerne> Also, is there a minimum meaningful value for the difficulty multiplier thing
23:34:38  <Zuu> Yes, changing settings via the debug window should work.
23:35:02  <FLHerne> :-)
23:35:40  <Zuu> The minimum value is set to 1. Below that you get 0 as cargo limit which isn't allowed by the script currently. (I don't remember why)
23:36:17  <FLHerne> Yep, that made a big difference
23:36:41  <FLHerne> it supposed to recognise FIRS food as a cargo?
23:37:01  <Zuu> if FIRS Food have a town effect, then yes
23:37:02  <FLHerne> It requests Petrol, but I presume Goods would also be valid?
23:37:16  <Zuu> basically, it work with town effects and not cargos.
23:38:04  <FLHerne> Odd thing is, it doesn't seem to. Food had a town-effect last time I tried it, but it doesn't seem to count for the cargo requirement :-/
23:38:13  <Zuu> These town effects are know for GSs:
23:39:01  <FLHerne> I would assume that FIRS Food has a food town-effect, then :P
23:39:26  <Zuu> Well, it basically harcode the usage of town effects based on climate.

23:39:51  <FLHerne> andythenorth seems to have wandered off, which is inconvenient :P
23:39:51  <Zuu> So if you provide food in temperate, it will still not use TE_FOOD.
23:40:06  <FLHerne> Does that make sense?
23:40:42  * FLHerne tests NaI + FIRS in a stable version
23:40:46  <Zuu> However, an extension could loop over all cargo types to detect which town effects that are available and use that as additonal imput to the current climate.
23:41:03  <Zuu> That just needs to be implemented :-p
23:42:22  <Zuu> hmm, I wonder if the dessert/snow issue ever got solved.
23:42:50  <FLHerne> Point is, NaI doesn't seem to recognise FIRS food as a valid thing to deliver. That seems a bit odd :-(
23:43:14  <Zuu> Which climate?
23:43:46  <FLHerne> Temperate. I think I see your point now :P
23:44:18  <Zuu> I can improve it with some work, but the current solution is hard coded to the climates.
23:44:36  *** KouDy [~KouDy@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
23:48:05  <FLHerne> So I shouldn't expect it to work in Temperate, this is a known issue, and might be fixable in the future?
23:48:23  * FLHerne doesn't know much about GS implementation :-/
23:49:55  *** Sturmi [] has joined #openttd
23:50:35  <Zuu> If the FIRS Food have the TownEffect FOOD, then the GS could be re-structured to read the TownEffect of all available cargo types. Based on that it will get a list of the available town effects in the game. It could get into trouble if some town effects have no receiver in the game due to some NewGRF issue.
23:51:06  <Zuu> Eg. what if there is a special cargo that provide a town effect that there is no industry set nor town set that provide a receiver for?
23:51:50  <Zuu> Or what if there is a town effect that appears to be available for the GS but actually is not possible to produce.
23:51:59  <FLHerne> I don't know, and I'm probably not the right person to ask :P
23:52:39  <Zuu> Or what happens if the availability of cargos that provide some cargo effect is vastly different to the default cargos? (then the goals might need to change to account to availability of cargo .... which makes the whole thing more complex)
23:53:12  <FLHerne> Zuu: Doesn't that happen with any NewGrf cargoes?
23:53:40  <Zuu> That can happen also with the current NaI script
23:53:47  <Zuu> Or with NoCarGoal.
23:54:25  <Zuu> Last NoCarGoal however pick 1 primary, 1 secondary and 1 random cargo to provide some stability.
23:55:17  <Zuu> But it doesn't attempt to detect engineering supplies or any other low quantity cargo.

23:58:50  <dot_> I have a game running and in any train depot, I can see cars but no engines. Why is this?
23:59:17  <__ln__> the year is too early
23:59:22  <FLHerne> dot_: Are any engines actually available for that railtype?
23:59:27  <dot_> 3000? is too early?
23:59:35  <FLHerne> dot_: Or too late :P
23:59:43  <dot_> no engines exist for that date?
23:59:59  <FLHerne> Possibly no engines for that railtype are available after 2500 or whatever?
