00:01:00  <Eddi|zuHause> that sentence does not parse
00:01:30  *** supermop [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:04:17  <Stimrol> what I am trying to say is does the autopilot.tcl stop because it is not given enough time to finish starting openttd because the crontab script is done running. Would it maybe change anything adding sleep to the end of the script
00:04:31  <Stimrol> this is even more complicated sentence :)
00:05:09  *** HerzogDeXtEr1 [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:05:25  *** Celestar [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:05:45  <Maedhros> it shouldn't make any difference
00:06:40  <Maedhros> i don't think cron works that way -- the commands it starts should continue until *they* stop
00:06:44  <Maedhros> it won't stop them for you
00:07:24  <Stimrol> I am google running tcl script with google, and it seams to have to do with enviroments like Eddi says, but I dont know what more enviroments it needs than the path, and I run the program from full path

00:14:45  <Supercheese> Oy gevalt:
00:15:33  <Eddi|zuHause> no such content
00:15:47  <Supercheese> Likely registered only
00:16:04  <Supercheese> Lemme link the crazy parts
00:17:15  <Supercheese> Actually, no, not worth linking
00:17:24  <Supercheese> drama is bad™
00:22:26  <Eddi|zuHause> when was simuscape ever not drama?
00:23:45  <Supercheese> yeah, anything I link has basically been covered before
00:26:02  <Eddi|zuHause> i really don't care anymore... let them have their shut-in monastery
00:30:13  <peter1138> daemontools might be a reasonable tool for running openttd servers
00:30:35  <peter1138> djb's tools
00:30:56  <peter1138> not the cdrom drive emulator that is weirdly named daemon tools for whatever stupid reason
00:33:00  <Eddi|zuHause> if autopilot catches sighup, you might also send that from a cronjob, avoiding all the other mess
00:33:38  <Eddi|zuHause> (i'm sure there are more crazy workarounds of that sort)
00:39:03  <Stimrol> I use SIGQUIT to stop it so sighup is maybe there also
00:45:16  *** Biolunar [] has quit [Quit: My life for Aiur]
00:52:54  <Stimrol> this is more complicated than I thought, probably because I dont know programming. But I thought I could scratch my way around some problems
00:55:09  <Stimrol> dont know how to make SIGHUP.tcl run, the other is done by calling "/ SCHED_QUIT" but ap-signal is used for kill commands only and halts if autopilot is not running
01:01:21  <Stimrol> and probably even to late to be wondering about this problems :)
01:15:45  *** Zuu [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:16:48  <Supercheese> Man, at 4x zoom vehicles sure "jump" when moving
01:16:54  <Supercheese> stop-motion
01:23:10  <__ln__> so, umm, yo, season 5 of breaking bad started in july, continued until september, and will continue next july. wtf, yo?
01:27:03  <Stimrol> Eddi|zuHause, SIGHUP doesnt reload openttd, so it still keeps running the old version, have to shut down to make newest nightly build available
01:27:17  <Supercheese>
01:28:08  *** KritiK [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:28:20  <Stimrol> nice
01:28:35  <Supercheese>
01:29:20  <Supercheese> Rendered from
01:29:56  <Stimrol> well done
01:39:02  <Supercheese> Next on the list:
01:56:32  <Stimrol> good night
01:56:38  <Supercheese> 'night
02:04:59  *** pugi [] has quit []
02:14:57  <peter1138> hmm
02:15:05  <peter1138> 32bpp 4x eh
02:21:31  <Supercheese> indeed
02:22:55  <peter1138> what's the range on that?
02:22:56  <peter1138> :p
02:23:06  <Supercheese> eyecandy, no range
02:23:12  <Supercheese> no running cost, no purchase
02:23:24  <peter1138> heh
02:23:40  <peter1138> eyecandy vehicles? is that even a thing?
02:23:49  * Supercheese is sort of the eyecandy vehicles dude
02:24:10  <Supercheese> I've been gathering ideas and sprites steadily over the past year or so
02:24:30  <peter1138> damn, that's big
02:24:54  <Supercheese> 50ft in diameter, IIRC
02:25:06  <Supercheese> 49ft, I was close
02:25:15  <Supercheese>
02:25:24  <peter1138> yeah that's what i'm on
02:25:56  <Supercheese> ≈75 ft tall
02:26:08  * Supercheese is off to dinner
02:26:15  <peter1138> aeronaut is a nice word
03:15:02  <Supercheese> Ouch, new Simuscape license even disallows decoding the grf
03:15:19  * Supercheese promptly violates the license
03:16:22  * peter1138 tuts
03:16:39  <peter1138> it's not that CC license anymore?
03:16:44  <Supercheese> she changed
03:16:53  <Supercheese> SAC is a she, no?

03:18:04  <peter1138> bit different from CC
03:18:07  <peter1138> why are you even on there?
03:18:11  <Supercheese> 180° opposite, even
03:18:25  <Supercheese> Well, I like North American Roads
03:18:32  <Supercheese> and that's the only place to get them
03:18:38  <Supercheese> well, newest ones anyway
03:18:41  <peter1138> simuscape is a clique of artists who never released anything in case people used it
03:20:54  <Supercheese> Well, in the event new grfs or updates to existing grfs are released there, I'd like to be able to download them
03:54:46  <DorpsGek> Commit by peter1138 :: r24932 /trunk/src (lang/english.txt newgrf_gui.cpp) (2013-01-22 03:54:40 UTC)
03:54:47  <DorpsGek> -Fix [FS#5158]: Prevent more NewGRFs being selected than is possible to load.
03:55:06  <peter1138> easy bugs :p
03:56:41  <Supercheese> Hmm, those poor sods using unmodified OTTD are still limited to 63-64 grfs, eh?
03:56:48  <peter1138> 58
03:56:52  <Supercheese> Ouch
03:56:59  <peter1138> more than you ever need
03:57:51  <Supercheese> Need ≠ want
03:57:58  <Supercheese> Also you don't "need" any at all
03:58:02  <peter1138> sheesh
03:58:10  <peter1138> why would you even ...
03:58:17  <Supercheese> You've seen my grf list
03:58:30  <peter1138> you'll end up with a horrible mishmash of graphics styles
03:58:36  <peter1138> conflicting prices
03:58:42  <peter1138> it wouldn't make sense
03:58:46  <Supercheese> To you, perhaps
03:58:55  <Supercheese> but for those of us who want to, well, we do
03:59:02  <Supercheese> beauty of open-source stuff eh
03:59:10  <peter1138> sick

08:34:58  <peter1138> herp
08:35:28  <peter1138> Supercheese, what, you mean they actually produced work instead of spending all their time infighting over who drew crap?
08:35:52  <Supercheese> Alls I know is that they do, in fact, have grfs available for download
08:39:17  <Supercheese> Ugh, why did I ever start coding grfs with all my nml in the same file... now I have to separate and #include yet again
08:39:34  <Supercheese> s'like the 4th grf I've had to go back and change that
08:42:52  <peter1138> heh
08:43:58  <Eddi|zuHause> who produced what where?
08:44:03  <Supercheese> Simuscape
08:44:11  <Supercheese> et al.
08:44:17  <peter1138> Supercheese, what, no, i was talking about the civ stuff
08:44:26  <Supercheese> oh
08:44:36  <Supercheese> right
08:44:57  <Eddi|zuHause> civ? i'm lost
08:45:03  <Supercheese>
08:45:04  <peter1138> 05:12 < Supercheese> I just ported this to OTTD:
08:45:08  <Supercheese> and that
08:46:06  <Supercheese> Some talented modelers have made dozens of units/vehicles for Civilization 3
08:47:04  <Eddi|zuHause> i never played that game, actually
08:53:32  <Supercheese> converting the civ3 palette to OTTD palette is a pain in the ass, I need to figure out a way to automate it
08:53:53  <Supercheese> civ3 has tricky magic-pink-transparency-blend in the palette
09:00:05  <Eddi|zuHause>
09:02:31  <Supercheese> Wait, my random switches are re-randomizing when the vehicle is serviced :S
09:02:55  <Supercheese> I thought if I didn't specify any triggers it would never re-randomize
09:05:33  <V453000> :D
09:07:20  *** dfox [~dfox@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:07:43  <Supercheese> Blarg, how do I stop re-randomization
09:08:34  <peter1138> you have a trigger set somewhere
09:09:27  <V453000> Supercheese: that is strange, my trains dont do that
09:09:50  <V453000> this for sure doesnt re-randomize upon servicing
09:09:59  <V453000> the "return" arent necessary
09:10:04  <V453000> ah yeah
09:10:07  <Supercheese> Hmmm
09:10:10  <V453000> you probably have a trigger there
09:10:33  <V453000> got something liek random_trigger: anywhere?
09:10:56  <Supercheese> Oh blarg yes, this is old code, forgot I had that
09:10:58  <Supercheese> thanks
09:11:28  <peter1138> lots of spritesets for different colours, or are you use CC recolours?
09:11:40  <Supercheese> two random livery variants atm
09:12:20  <V453000> I use sprites peter
09:12:38  <V453000> I often edit each colour individually so recolours would probably not quite cut it :)
09:19:57  <Supercheese> Fixed \o/

10:02:14  <V453000> that helps indeed :) less coding mode zzz
10:13:53  <__ln__>
10:18:43  <peter1138> what's the order of vehicle views in a spriteset?
10:18:57  <peter1138> clockwise, isn't it? starting at...?
10:19:22  <V453000> starting at upward
10:19:55  <V453000> example
10:20:10  <peter1138> thanks
10:21:11  <V453000> yw
10:22:19  <planetmaker> <-- @ V453000 better keep the return. It's more consistent and might be changed to be needed in NML 0.4 :-)
10:23:00  <V453000> oh :D right I dont have them mostly anymore ... will just add them when needed :)
10:24:12  <planetmaker> it will at least trigger warnings for some time. It won't be a "now it doesn't work anymore" decision. So yes, you're safe whatever way you choose now
10:28:23  <planetmaker> generally: think of it the way, that you use return when you return the final value (or spriteset) and just the identifier name when chaining
10:28:57  <planetmaker> but if you ask me... I'm not consequent there either. So far at least :-)

12:30:02  <NGC3982> Eddi|zuHause: Yes, indeed.
12:30:33  <NGC3982> Seriosly, the poop pot is boiling in Sweden today
12:31:05  <Eddi|zuHause> *must*stop*image*in*head*
12:31:35  <NGC3982> We have for many years used a very unfair system for paying up for social service
12:32:17  <NGC3982> Swedes are forced to pay (a fair amount of) money, if they own a television. Even if they never use it to watch public service channels (wich the money is for).
12:32:36  <NGC3982> It's unfair and shit, and i have been seriosly working to make it go away.
12:32:42  <peter1138> same here
12:32:53  <NGC3982> Today, they announced that everyone with a computer can watch, and therefor - should play the fee.
12:33:02  <peter1138> haha
12:33:18  <Eddi|zuHause> NGC3982: welcome to germany 10 years ago :p
12:33:28  <planetmaker> NGC3982: welcome. We know that here as well...
12:33:46  <NGC3982> Hey, let's lie about not owning a computer so that i don't have to buy a service i do not want to use.
12:33:49  <NGC3982> Fuck off.
12:33:51  <planetmaker> and tbh... *if* you want everyone to finance it, it's the logical consequence
12:33:53  <NGC3982> Regards, Sweden.
12:34:03  <NGC3982> Sorry for the foul language. :(
12:34:05  <Eddi|zuHause> NGC3982: we have meanwhile passed this stage, and just charge every house, irrespective of whether they own a TV, computer, radio or nothing
12:34:11  <planetmaker> unless you want to finance it via taxes. Which would be fairer
12:34:34  <NGC3982> Though, the thing is: I support paying for public service. I like public service! But i will -never- be turned up the ass like that.
12:34:44  <NGC3982> Eddi|zuHause: And that's at least fair.
12:34:45  <planetmaker> a flat tax irrespective of household income is... injust
12:34:46  <peter1138> switzerland, norway, denmark and austria all have high rates than sweden :p
12:34:58  <Eddi|zuHause> it's deliberately not financed via taxes, as that could mean (even more) unfair influence on the content by the government
12:35:15  <peter1138> *higher
12:35:21  <planetmaker> I can't imagine how that would make it worse, Eddi|zuHause
12:35:28  <NGC3982> planetmaker: having everyone paying the same fee is at least a taxation. The current law system is unfair and stupid.
12:35:35  <NGC3982> Though
12:35:49  <Pinkbeast> We have a TV license (and I have a vast collection of nastygrams) but as long as the government ultimately sets the licence fee I don't see that they have any less influence.
12:35:53  <planetmaker> NGC3982: it's up to you to suggest something fairer and to lobby for that suggestion
12:35:53  <NGC3982> SVTplay could solve this by simply using a paypal service or something
12:35:59  <NGC3982> But no, let's make it a law instead.
12:36:12  <Pinkbeast> I'd rather it was funded out of general taxation, and right now I don't pay a penny.
12:36:27  <planetmaker> not sure there is a fairer system than a fee or tax. If you want publicly funded TV and not only TV which follows the intrest of a oligopol
12:37:00  <NGC3982> planetmaker: True. That's why i support taxation. It might be much money for the Swedish people, but it is at least a real law.
12:37:27  <NGC3982> If the currect system was applicated to a commercial instance, it would be illegal and frowned upon.
12:37:53  <NGC3982> It's like i would charge you people money because you never contacted me and said that you didnt want to buy my shit you have never heard of.
12:37:58  <Pinkbeast> That is true of everything the government collects funding for, so I'm not sure you can single out the TV license.
12:38:13  <planetmaker> NGC3982: yes. So it's currently effectively a flat tax
12:38:31  <planetmaker> your taxes are also used to support *whatever* even though you don#t use it. why should it be different with TV?
12:38:48  <Pinkbeast> A flat tax that (if it's anything like the UK) is woefully inefficiently collected by virtue of being outside the usual tax collection regime.
12:38:49  <planetmaker> call it tax or fee or whatever. No big difference really
12:39:05  <planetmaker> that's of course another issue, Pinkbeast :-)
12:39:40  <planetmaker> it's the administrative overhead which would need and could go by using simple tax funding
12:40:04  <Pinkbeast> Also there are some fascinating edge cases. I can watch stuff on the BBC iplayer later and I don't need a TV Licence. :-)
12:40:29  <planetmaker> that's circumvented now in germany: every household pays a flat fee. And that's it.
12:40:44  <planetmaker> that also then includes usage of the internet pages of public tv.
12:40:55  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: would you rather have a tax based on you having to register every single TV set and the tax calculated on screen diagonal?
12:41:02  <planetmaker> (from my POV it kinda makes sense. It's the only way I've been using the services for years)
12:41:08  <NGC3982> planetmaker: Yes.
12:41:25  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: no. I'd just use a tiny part of the income tax to fund TV. No special tax needed
12:41:28  <planetmaker> or VAT. or whatever
12:41:47  <NGC3982> My point with all this is: A government can't make up stuff from nothing, just so you have to pay them shit. This is not Italy, damnit.
12:41:58  <planetmaker> it's not like we have a special "usage of hospitatal tax" either
12:42:00  <Pinkbeast> That is precisely how all taxes work so errr
12:42:03  <Eddi|zuHause> not sure how that makes any more sense than charging for every household
12:42:27  <NGC3982> And, if you want to fund public service, make the people pay for it. That's fine, if you feel the importance of it. But don't make up magic rules that doesn't apply logically to the people using television.
12:42:34  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: we have a mandatory membership of a health insurance, though
12:42:34  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: the difference is everybody paying exactly the same amount vs. everybody paying a percentage amount of their income
12:42:39  <planetmaker> the latter is fairer
12:43:04  <planetmaker> 30€ may be a lot for some, and nothing for others
12:43:12  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: and we DID have a "visit a doctor" fee, until a few months ago
12:43:18  <planetmaker> I know :-)
12:43:45  <planetmaker> but only once every 3 month. All subsequent in that quarter were free. Kinda
12:46:18  <NGC3982> And, speaking of this. The system they are using to "detect" people with TV is a "#/&"#? mess.
12:46:20  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: still that one made no sense whatsoever
12:46:30  <peter1138>
12:46:32  <peter1138>
12:46:38  <NGC3982> They can charge you (without you having anything to object) if they see a television trough your window.
12:46:41  <NGC3982> And they do
12:46:45  <NGC3982> The did it to me
12:46:50  <peter1138> ^ hacky experimental patch
12:46:55  <Eddi|zuHause> NGC3982: you ring during a football game, and if it sounds "GOAL" out of the living room, they have a TV?
12:46:56  <NGC3982> I used legal process to get myself out of it.
12:47:01  <peter1138> (along with patch to compare number of calls)
12:47:02  <NGC3982> Eddi|zuHause: True.
12:47:09  <NGC3982> Eddi|zuHause: ..According to them.
12:47:21  <NGC3982> They don't have to knock and tell you either, they simply send you an invoice.
12:47:24  <NGC3982> And a legal warning
12:47:40  <NGC3982> Remind you; The people that work with it does -not- have govermental juristiction.
12:47:53  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, that is the same over here
12:48:15  <NGC3982> I went to the swedish TingsrÀtt back in 2009 to get it sorted out
12:48:17  <Pinkbeast> Hm, this is very like the mess in the UK, except that merely seeing a TV through the window does not suffice.
12:48:21  <NGC3982> And of course, it got sorted out.
12:48:28  <Pinkbeast> The detector vans here are almost certainly completely bogus.
12:48:30  <NGC3982> Since people do not go to court with it, they can continue.
12:48:43  <NGC3982> It's Berlusconi poop. That's what it is, dag nabbit.
12:48:54  <NGC3982> planetmaker: "Detector vans"?
12:49:11  <Eddi|zuHause> wrong hilight :)
12:49:20  <Pinkbeast> Just as well since there _is_ a TV visible through my window (and no, I'm not breaking the rules).
12:49:24  <__ln__> Strangely enough, for the past 22 days, we've had our "tv licence" implemented as an additional tax. Which is 0€ if you earn <7000€/year, and scales to max ~140€ for >=20000€/year.
12:50:12  <planetmaker> it levels off quickly, __ln__
12:50:15  <__ln__> And that's per person (adult person, i think).
12:50:35  <Eddi|zuHause> 20k€/year is not that much
12:50:54  *** Snail [] has joined #openttd
12:51:12  <Pinkbeast> I assume this is the most basic patch to a flat tax to make it not screw the poor too badly.
12:51:13  <__ln__> yeah, it isn't. the upper limit is quite low.
12:51:15  <planetmaker> yes, it's not... If I'd leave university, I'd ask for more...
12:51:23  <peter1138> main issue with the UK system is they don't believe that anyone can not have a tv
12:52:13  <NGC3982> peter1138: That goes for us too. Hence, a guy can stand in your window and look at your personal DVD of Game of Thrones and report you as a TV (that is, D/A Reciever) owner, charging you the fee.
12:52:18  <peter1138> you can watch stuff on bbc iplayer, as long as it's not "live"
12:52:40  <peter1138> and you actually get guys standing in your window?
12:52:46  <planetmaker> meanwhile you can watch most stuff in public TV also as live stream
12:53:00  <Pinkbeast> NGC: Except that here they will lose (if you turn up to mag's court and say "no, watching a DVD")
12:53:00  <planetmaker> in Germany at least
12:53:15  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: Yes, that is true. How many Swedes will do that?
12:53:37  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: They deliberatly use a unlawful (and unethic) system to make people pay for stuff they might not even use.
12:53:47  <NGC3982> And that was my case when i took this to court.
12:53:51  <NGC3982> And won.
12:53:56  <Pinkbeast> I would - it's going to cost them vast sums of money for an afternoon's amusement for me.
12:54:08  <Eddi|zuHause> with the further diversification in receiver devices (cellphones, tablets, ...) it made no real sense anymore to distinguish between TVs and computers
12:54:09  <Pinkbeast> Errr again you seem to be objecting in general to how taxation works.
12:54:27  <Pinkbeast> I pay for lots of stuff I don't use, when it comes to tax.
12:54:31  <Eddi|zuHause> so i do think charging every household irrespective of device is the better option
12:54:32  <NGC3982> Me?
12:55:04  <Pinkbeast> Yes.
12:55:12  <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: charging the same amount from every household is unfair.
12:55:16  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: It's not general taxation. That's why im mad?
12:55:34  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: whatever system you choose. _SOMEONE_ will always think it's unfair
12:55:41  <Pinkbeast> Do you object in general to hypothecated taxes?
12:55:55  <planetmaker> what's an "hypothecated tax"?
12:56:04  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: Absolutely not. I support the general flat taxation for public service in Sweden.
12:56:20  <Pinkbeast> One collected for a specific purpose (like the UK TV licence fee)
12:56:33  <planetmaker> ah, I see
12:57:12  <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: but the same amount for all is too unfair.
12:57:14  <Pinkbeast> NGC: My point is that your objection is incoherent. You don't in general mind "paying for stuff you don't use", in taxation; and you say you don't object to hypothecated taxes.
12:57:36  <Pinkbeast> But you are complaining about what is essentially a hypothecated tax on the grounds that it's paying for stuff you don't use.
12:57:52  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: i'm not sure what the new version is, but in the old version you were free if you had _really_ low income, like 250€/month
12:58:09  <planetmaker> you still can get exemption, Eddi|zuHause
12:59:38  *** hanshoi [] has left #openttd []
12:59:38  <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: not here. if you were living alone and your income was 0€/month, you'd still pay the same amount as a household of two people both earning 50k€/year.
13:00:07  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: Then you have missed my meaning of all this. I have no objection to paying for public service, if it's on fair grounds for everybody. For instance, having everyone to share the bill (for instance, a flat tax). The current system ignores if you can/cannot use public service. If you have a monitor that "looks big", it's suddenly charge-able. When i say "that people don't even use", i'm not talking about people watching TV and don't switch over to t
13:00:36  <Pinkbeast> "The current system ignores if you can/cannot use public service."
13:00:43  <NGC3982> Yes, that is true.
13:00:54  <Pinkbeast> Ah. So I should be exempt from the proportion of tax that pays for child benefit, having been sterilised?
13:01:12  <planetmaker> :-)
13:01:19  <Pinkbeast> What you seem to be saying is that you do in fact object to hypothecated taxes.
13:01:23  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: Again, you do not understand. I support making everyone pay for public service, as is written a few lines up.
13:01:39  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: I do -not- support making some of the people pay, on grounds that does not exist.
13:01:42  <planetmaker> you should then pay twice, Pinkbeast. As you don't provide people who'll pay your retirement money
13:01:49  <Pinkbeast> But you are contradicting yourself constantly.
13:02:14  <NGC3982> Is this a language thing or what? It's this easy: The current law makes some people pay, regardless of them using TV or not.
13:02:19  <Pinkbeast> A tax that everyone pays "ignores if you can/cannot use public service" - so why is that bad about the current system?
13:02:33  <Pinkbeast> Yes. A tax that everyone pays would make some people pay, regardless etc etc
13:02:38  <planetmaker> NGC3982, yes. And a tax makes *everyone* pay. Even when they don't use whatever the tax is used for
13:02:46  <planetmaker> and you said you're not against a flat-tax system...
13:02:46  <NGC3982> Exactly.
13:02:56  <NGC3982> Yes, that is true - again.
13:03:06  <Pinkbeast> So your objections to the current system would also be objections to "everyone pays".
13:03:12  <planetmaker> but... it is a flat tax system, if everyone pays for TV. Even if they don't have or use it
13:04:51  <NGC3982> planetmaker: Indeed. I repeat: The current system makes some (read: some) people pay for everyones usage of public service. Of these people, many don't even own a television. These people will therefor by law pay for everyone elses television use (and that is why the fee is so high). Thus: The law is faulty and that is why i do not like it.
13:05:05  <NGC3982> If -everyone- (or no-one) paid for it, that would be a more fair system.
13:05:35  <Pinkbeast> If everyone paid for it, many would still not own a television. These people would therefore by law pay for everyone else's television use. Thus: ... ?
13:05:50  <Eddi|zuHause> NGC3982: i'm totally lost on what you're actually against now
13:05:58  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: Yes, that is true. Though, that would be a real law, based on real taxation rules.
13:06:07  *** pugi [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:06:10  <planetmaker> so am I, Eddi|zuHause. I totally don't get your argument, sorry, NGC3982
13:06:12  <NGC3982> The current system is not, and as i said, conjugated by people that is not a part of our coverment.
13:06:13  <Pinkbeast> So in fact you clearly do not object on the stated grounds.
13:06:21  <Pinkbeast> It manifestly is a real law.
13:06:24  <NGC3982> Do i have to paint this?
13:06:38  *** pugi [] has joined #openttd
13:06:45  <Pinkbeast> But furthermore you're now getting into an entirely fresh objection. This is what I mean by your argument being incoherent.
13:07:13  <Pinkbeast> Indeed, since the overwhelming majority of people do own a TV, funding it out of general taxation would increase the net sums paid by people who don't.
13:08:12  <planetmaker> yes... but would possibly open the option to just remove the bloated fund-gathering agency which is in use now
13:08:20  <planetmaker> thus might even be a net gain ;-)
13:08:31  <NGC3982> The net gain of a flat tax for everyone is:
13:08:51  <Pinkbeast> planet: Yes, and "get rid of Capita" would be marvellous here, but that's a different argument.
13:08:55  <NGC3982> 1. We can close down the fake agency that works with the bloated non-police-but-police-action work right now.
13:08:59  <NGC3982> and:
13:09:12  <NGC3982> 2: Everyone pay for public service. Either everyone, or no-one.
13:09:16  <NGC3982> or:
13:09:45  <NGC3982> 3: Make the system pay-per-view. Since the agency announced that SVTplay will be internet only in a few years, that is not that hard to handle.
13:10:01  <Pinkbeast> Marvellous. I agree. But if those are your objectives, don't start by saying "It makes people pay who don't use the service", because that would still be true if you did 1: and 2:!
13:10:13  <Eddi|zuHause> <NGC3982> 1. We can close down the fake agency that works with the bloated non-police-but-police-action work right now. <-- except that germany didn't manage to do this when they introduced the flat fee
13:11:11  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: Yes, i have to excuse the usage of words there. My point was that a law that makes everyone pay for public service, is a better solution than "some" paying, even if they do not use it.
13:11:14  <Eddi|zuHause> now they're not trying to find out anymore who owns a TV, but which people form an actual combined houseold
13:11:15  <NGC3982> Eddi|zuHause: :(
13:11:39  <Pinkbeast> Well, I agree with that, yes.
13:11:51  <Eddi|zuHause> so they're like going to student homes and ask "do you have sex with each other" (my imagination)
13:12:15  <NGC3982> As with the current system (to sum this circus of arguments all up), i have to -lie- and say that i -dont own a computer-, simply because i never visit
13:12:24  <NGC3982> And that falls on its own, really.
13:12:36  <NGC3982> I can make them a pay-per-view service for free, if they want to
13:12:36  <Pinkbeast> Eddi: On the other hand that is something that has to be done for all sorts of reasons (eg distinguishing lodger/cohabitee)...
13:12:41  <NGC3982> And this would be solved.
13:12:41  <NGC3982> ..
13:12:55  <Pinkbeast> No, you don't have to lie. Either the law requires you to pay if you have a computer or it doesn't.
13:13:54  <Pinkbeast> For instance I know that the wording here is "a device installed or used for the purpose of receiving television programmes as they are broadcast", or something very like that, and know that (as you might expect) case law says that iplayer counts if it is not timeshifted.
13:15:10  <Pinkbeast> So if (as I do not) I watch TV but never the BBC, I'm not required to lie. I'm required to pay.
13:15:56  <NGC3982> Sure. I do not however, think that having a computer implies having easy access to
13:16:22  <NGC3982> If the solution easily can be solved with simply having a damn username.
13:18:58  <NGC3982> It's like putting out a fire with a comet
13:19:23  *** tokai|mdlx [] has joined #openttd
13:19:59  <Pinkbeast> If the situation is like that in the UK, not at all; you pay for the use of a device that could potentially be used to...
13:20:04  <Eddi|zuHause> NGC3982: like i said, we have had that same discussion in germany several years ago
13:20:56  <Eddi|zuHause> NGC3982: except that computers were not charged the TV fee, but the radio fee
13:21:12  <Eddi|zuHause> which was much lower
13:21:28  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: Indeed. So, you can code, right? Make a username+password function with Paypal support, and i'll call the government.
13:21:40  <NGC3982> Eddi|zuHause: Ah, you have separated fee's?
13:21:49  <Eddi|zuHause> NGC3982: not anymore
13:21:58  <Pinkbeast> NGC: My point is that that would make no difference at all because obviously with a suitable device it would be trivial to register a username.
13:23:04  <NGC3982> Sure it would. People that don't pay would not be able to take part of it.
13:23:11  <NGC3982> As with Netflix, or Spotify.
13:23:19  <Eddi|zuHause> NGC3982: now they introduced the per-household fee irrespective of device
13:23:21  <NGC3982> (I know, it's not a good idea since nobody would use it).
13:23:28  <NGC3982> Eddi|zuHause: I see.
13:23:37  <Pinkbeast> But now you're avocating a change to pay-per-view, which is completely separate from the bogus assertion that presently you are required to lie.
13:23:37  <Eddi|zuHause> NGC3982: now the companies complain that have many shops
13:23:59  <Pinkbeast> As far as I can see presently you are lying to avoid the fact that in fact you are required to pay.
13:24:04  <Eddi|zuHause> because they might have a major increase in fees
13:24:32  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: Yes, of course.
13:24:41  <NGC3982> I'm required to pay, since i own a computer.
13:24:43  <Pinkbeast> So you are not required to lie at all.
13:25:01  *** tokai|noir [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:25:02  <Pinkbeast> In fact, you're objecting to the fact that it is becoming much more like an "everybody pays" tax!
13:25:28  <michi_cc> And of course you also get the regular public TV station haters, but then somebody who thinks Mitten im Leben or X-Diaries is quality TV has a completely different problem anyway.
13:25:46  <NGC3982> So, having a system (like Netflix or Spotify) that makes users pay, and the users actually use the service - is not a good thing?
13:26:31  <Pinkbeast> NGC: Again, one objection at a time. We're dealing now with "required to lie", and the fact that you think a flat tax is good but a de facto flat tax is bad.
13:26:58  <Eddi|zuHause> and then there's the local newspapers that don't sell anything anymore and want in on the "public money" themselves
13:27:11  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: As i have been trying to point out: Having a system where everyone pays, or where the people actually using it pays is a good system. A bad system is where some people that might or might not use the system have to pay for everyone else. What is wrong with that?
13:27:21  <michi_cc> NGC3982: Not at all, if one of the goals is to provide political education, proper news or cultural programs, i.e. everything that isn't entertainment.
13:28:16  <Pinkbeast> It doesn't make sense in terms of objecting to moving from a system where some people to approaching one where effectively everyone pays because the set of qualifying devices is so large that everyone owns one.
13:28:25  <NGC3982> michi_cc: Yes, that is why i think that we should either use the "everybody pays", or the "the ones that use it pays". Nothing else, right?
13:29:21  <peter1138> no comments on my fs4934 patch then :p
13:29:32  <NGC3982> peter1138: Haha. Sorry for the OT.
13:30:00  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: So, having a system where "everybody pays" or "the users that use it pays" is not better then guessing who's using it? :D
13:30:23  <michi_cc> NGC3982: For those goals, everybody pays is the better way. There are already enough people that think education and culture are optional and they shouldn't be rewarded.
13:30:36  <NGC3982> michi_cc: Sure, let's make that happend then.
13:30:40  <Pinkbeast> NGC: again, you're skipping off the point. You're objecting to a change from a system where some pay to another system where some pay.
13:30:54  <michi_cc> NGC3982: It has happened in Germany.
13:30:59  <Pinkbeast> That we agree that "everybody pays" would be better is irrelevant to the relative merits of those systems.
13:31:00  <NGC3982> Pinkbeast: Yes, that is true. But in the proposed system the RIGHT people pay.
13:31:38  <Pinkbeast> So don't bring it up when complaining about computers becoming qualifying devices, because it's irrelevant (except inasmuch as, I observe, you are de facto moving to "everybody pays").
13:33:07  <Eddi|zuHause> <peter1138> no comments on my fs4934 patch then :p <- can you make up your mind whether game-related or not-game-related discussions are bad now? :p
13:33:55  <michi_cc> peter1138: fs4934 interacts with some other stuff I consider sub-optimal: that the sprite cache is always storing all zoom levels of each sprite. An idea might be to cache/store sprite meta data separately and then only store the used sprite sizes in the sprite cache.
13:34:44  <Eddi|zuHause> NGC3982: "the RIGHT people" are always "the others"...
13:34:49  <peter1138> not sure that's particularly relevant to the problem though
13:35:08  <peter1138> hmm, kinda is
13:35:24  <NGC3982> Eddi|zuHause: The right people might in this case be the people that logon to SVTplay and pay for a service. Though, as michi_cc said, it might not be a good thing (since most people would avoid it).
13:36:00  <NGC3982> Eddi|zuHause: As said, how they solve it is not my problem, i just want to abolish a unethical system that punishes random citizens with unrelated fee's.
13:36:05  <michi_cc> peter1138: It's not related to the problem at all :), but related to how to implement a solution.
13:36:12  <NGC3982> and "i" is at the moment a lot of Swedes.
13:36:49  *** Snail [] has quit [Quit: Snail]
13:37:21  <NGC3982> People are so pissed right now. The Swedish AMS (where you announce for employees) have stopped announcing for "pejlare" (the people that look for televisions trough windows and poop).
13:37:55  <NGC3982> But yes, i feel that i have used this channel a bit too much for OT today.
13:37:56  <NGC3982> Sorry.
13:39:55  <peter1138> never mind
13:40:02  <peter1138> i updated the FS entry instead :p
13:40:56  <NGC3982> :D
13:48:33  <NGC3982> I will have to excuse myself. The last then minutes, the agency put up a clarification note on the website, stating that you do not have to pay the fee, as long as you dont have an explicit TV-tuner in your computer.
13:48:50  <NGC3982> The announcement this morning was a bit hasty, then.
13:48:54  <NGC3982> And so was my anger.
13:49:03  <peter1138> hah
13:51:39  <NGC3982> Eddi|zuHause: Re: Grouping vehicles. Another thing that would be nice to use is "dragging across multiple windows". For instance, from a station view to a group view:
13:56:36  <peter1138> get coding
13:57:19  <NGC3982> Hehe
13:57:32  <NGC3982> I would just ruin it.
13:57:42  <peter1138> don't think the window system supports drag&drop between windows currently
13:57:56  <NGC3982> Stuff like that are made with patches, right?
13:58:04  <NGC3982> It's not like i can NewGRF it, i guess.
13:58:13  <peter1138> yeah source code patches
13:58:16  <NGC3982> I see.
13:59:40  <peter1138> must suck to have such a small screen :-p
14:00:29  <NGC3982> Hehe, indeed.
14:00:49  <NGC3982> It's a laptop
14:00:58  <peter1138>
14:02:15  <NGC3982> Hm, alright.
14:02:20  <NGC3982> How is a diff file implemented?
14:02:32  <NGC3982> Do you compile it? Or is it simply loaded?
14:03:14  <peter1138>
14:03:50  <NGC3982> Ah, thank you.
14:04:02  <NGC3982> I guess it's time i create myself a forum username.
14:04:20  <peter1138> should be able to read that?
14:05:32  <NGC3982> Yes, i was refering to being a part of the forum
14:05:32  <peter1138> hmm, i didn't bump the savegame version
14:05:42  <peter1138> shows i haven't tested loading groups :p
14:06:40  <NGC3982> :D
14:06:41  <peter1138> (yup, it works)

15:55:08  <peter1138> oh god, the large maps patch goes to 1M these days :S
15:55:24  <Rubidium> it did for like ever
15:55:38  <peter1138> yeah but i never looked at it :p
15:56:47  <peter1138> hmm, 600MB just for the map
15:57:07  <Rubidium> and maybe it doesn't even save ;)
15:58:15  <FLHerne> Rubidium: The saner sizes seem to work fine though :-)
15:58:27  <peter1138> yeah, 256x256
15:58:55  * FLHerne has been using that patch for a few years with no problems other than lag :P
15:59:21  <Rubidium> and... have you filled the 2kx2k map already?
15:59:47  <Rubidium> like e.g. jgr did for 256x256 and I did for 128x128?
16:00:05  <FLHerne> Rubidium: Not on my own, but certainly in MP with friends it fills quite fast
16:01:14  <FLHerne> Normally I use 512x1024 on my own, and I can normally fill that between first steam trains and present day (using daylength though)
16:06:56  <peter1138> you should play ttd
16:07:05  <peter1138> 80 trains, 80 rvs, 50 ships and 40 planes
16:08:18  <FLHerne> That sounds very tedious. No CDist or autorefit or rivers or [insert older and more basic features] either...
16:08:48  <Rubidium> I'd reckon that to be 'autorail'
16:09:41  <Rubidium> or specifically, the dragging of the vertical and horizontal rail (from screen point of view)
16:10:13  <peter1138> autoslope
16:10:23  <peter1138> irregular stations
16:10:33  <peter1138> presignals
16:10:34  <Rubidium> build on slopes
16:10:43  <peter1138> yeah that's the one i meat

16:44:52  <NGC3982> Report: Half of Star Trek Voyager is now done.
16:44:57  <NGC3982> Impressions: What __ln__ said.
16:45:16  <NGC3982> It's a great series, but it can absolutely not match up to DS9.
16:51:55  <andythenorth> that moment when you spend more time figuring out how to use your framework than it would take to edit the code manually
16:53:29  <andythenorth> oh look
16:53:37  <andythenorth> 1,000,317 of grfs wot I helped make
16:53:43  <andythenorth> downloads via bananas
16:53:45  <andythenorth> that is
16:53:51  <NGC3982> Time spent calculating and visualising scenarios can never be ill spent.
16:54:07  <FLHerne> andythenorth: Impressive :P
16:54:16  <andythenorth> well getting 1m downloads is not going to happen again in my lifer
16:54:18  <andythenorth> -r
16:54:40  <NGC3982> Are you sure?
16:54:49  <FLHerne> I made one very simple one, which has never been downloaded by anyone :P
16:54:53  <NGC3982> How much time did 1m take? :)
16:55:02  <Rubidium> @calc 1000317/66790137*100
16:55:02  <DorpsGek> Rubidium: 1.49770167413
16:55:31  <Rubidium> that's only 1.5% of all bananas downloads?
16:56:05  <andythenorth> :P
16:56:20  <andythenorth> I've had a very fractional impact :P
16:56:24  <andythenorth> might as well stop eh?
16:56:29  <Pinkbeast> Even so that's got to put you up with Pikka in the top few
16:56:47  <FLHerne> Can Bananas show downloads/time?
16:56:51  <andythenorth> zeph wins
16:56:58  <andythenorth> and that stupid ships grf
16:57:22  <NGC3982> What is the most popular one? FIRS?
16:57:35  <andythenorth> nah
16:57:39  <andythenorth> people hate FIRS
16:57:55  <Pinkbeast> HEQS? HEQS is kind of a no-brainer without AIs.
16:57:59  <andythenorth> FISH is way more popular than the others
16:58:10  <NGC3982> HEQS is nice.
16:58:16  <andythenorth> FISH nearly twice as popular as HEQS
16:58:22  <NGC3982> Oh
16:59:36  <FLHerne> andythenorth: FISH is the only good ship grf on Bananas :-)
17:00:46  <Rubidium> regarding bananas downloads, I'd rather think Zuu and Yexo (AI + libraries)
17:01:27  <NGC3982> I see Yexo everywhere.
17:01:38  <andythenorth> yexo did CHIPS
17:01:42  <andythenorth> and a lot of FIRS
17:01:53  <peter1138> # hello hello hello hello hello
17:02:05  <andythenorth> is it me you're looking for?
17:02:27  <andythenorth> out the lights out, it's less dangerous
17:03:34  <Rubidium> based on (uploading) author Zuu is best; 6.3M, then Yexo 4.2M, Pikka 3.6M, Moriarty 3.6M, George: 2.7M, openttdcoop: 2.6M, planetmaker 2.1M. Zephyris is 12th with only 1.3M
17:05:03  <andythenorth> hoo
17:05:09  <NGC3982> Is it just me, or is OpenTTD more popular now than ever?
17:05:20  <andythenorth> Rubidium has the stats :P
17:05:51  <Rubidium> though it doesn't 'handle' the case where opengfx is contributed to by many people
17:06:13  <Rubidium> and andy doesn't seem to upload using his own account
17:06:42  <andythenorth> coop
17:08:38  <Rubidium> only half a million opengfx (from bananas)
17:09:06  * Rubidium comes to 700k with involvement in base sets
17:10:07  <Rubidium> Zuu is 6.2M in AI/GS and Yexo 4.2M
17:10:21  <andythenorth> interesting
17:10:31  <andythenorth> much bigger numbers than newgrf
17:10:52  <Rubidium> yeah, but downloading one AI gets you 10 or so libraries
17:10:58  <Rubidium> which are all counted ;)
17:11:38  <Rubidium> without libraries it's 1.4M for Zuu and 0.7M for Yexo
17:12:35  <Rubidium> and... without further... the top 30:
17:12:40  <Rubidium> for NewGRFs
17:14:29  <Terkhen> hello
17:14:34  <Rubidium> oh andy... you got 87698 downloads ;)

18:32:34  <peter1138> yes

18:33:13  <ZxBiohazardZx> aka 256
18:33:23  <peter1138> no

18:33:40  <peter1138> why 256?
18:33:49  <ZxBiohazardZx> 8 bits?
18:33:55  <ZxBiohazardZx> why only use 6 bits for it?
18:33:57  <peter1138> if you're using that many newgrfs, you're doing it wrong :S
18:34:06  <ZxBiohazardZx> fair enough
18:34:27  <peter1138> nothing to do with bits, it's a server protocol limitation
18:34:40  *** Zuu [] has joined #openttd
18:34:53  <Eddi|zuHause> ZxBiohazardZx: it's not about 6 bits, it's about (GRFID+MD5SUM)*56 is the largest to fit into one UDP package
18:35:02  <ZxBiohazardZx> ah ok
18:35:34  <ZxBiohazardZx> i had another question but i forgot it :)
18:35:36  <ZxBiohazardZx> epic fail :P
18:36:07  <peter1138> technically the limit is 1 more in temperate than other climates
18:36:28  <peter1138> but that gives you a conceptual problem
18:36:45  <ZxBiohazardZx> * Note: Cases are out of order for hysterical reasons. '0' is last.
18:36:49  <peter1138> so i ignored that detail
18:36:50  <ZxBiohazardZx> Hysterical reasons?
18:36:53  <ZxBiohazardZx> Historical reasons?
18:36:58  <ZxBiohazardZx> ^^
18:37:00  <peter1138> hysterical raisons
18:37:03  <peter1138> hysterical raisins even
18:37:13  <ZxBiohazardZx> frosch to blame there
18:37:21  <ZxBiohazardZx> aka should be historical?
18:37:33  <peter1138> not really
18:38:29  <ZxBiohazardZx> Cases are out of order for historical reasons, not hysterical, i dont see hysteria as a reason, history could be a reason if your to lazy to reorder them
18:38:51  <peter1138>
18:39:21  <peter1138> it's just a bit of light-hearted commentary
18:39:22  <ZxBiohazardZx> bug-by-bug compatible :P
18:39:34  <ZxBiohazardZx> ah meh fine then
18:40:19  <ZxBiohazardZx> Implement station randomisation triggers. whats that doing for gameplay?
18:40:26  <ZxBiohazardZx> it affects pathfinding?
18:40:46  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, like if you want to proces microsoft-C-code, you need not only adhere to the microsoft-C-specs, but also the microsoft-C-bugs
18:41:15  <Eddi|zuHause> ZxBiohazardZx: no, it's pure eyecandy
18:41:42  <ZxBiohazardZx> it adds an option to do something upon the enums listed?
18:41:46  <ZxBiohazardZx> for grfs
18:41:48  <ZxBiohazardZx> ?
18:42:06  <ZxBiohazardZx> aka new cargo, cargo taken etc
18:42:06  <Eddi|zuHause> no idea what you're referring to
18:42:12  <ZxBiohazardZx> nvm
18:42:31  <peter1138>
18:42:50  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, so e.g. stations that display passengers show the passengers at different location, each time a train came to pick them up
18:43:10  <peter1138> if it was coded right
18:43:11  <ZxBiohazardZx> ah thx

18:52:17  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, in iraq, in afghanistan, and now in mali
18:52:49  <Supercheese> and Libya, Egypt...
18:53:01  <Eddi|zuHause> there was no war in egypt
18:53:07  <Supercheese> civil war eh
18:53:16  <Eddi|zuHause> there was no civil war either
18:53:45  <Eddi|zuHause> there is a civil war in syria
18:54:02  <ZxBiohazardZx> your forgetting Siria (or however you spell it in english)
18:54:07  <Supercheese> revolution, civil war, eh, semantics
18:54:07  <Eddi|zuHause> there was a revolution in egypt, but not every revolution is a full blown civil war
18:54:08  <Prof_Frink> I like the idea of a civil war.
18:54:20  <__ln__> the afghanistan situation is a crisis, not a war, our prime minister or somebody has insisted.
18:54:24  <Prof_Frink> "I say old chap, would you mind terribly if I were to shoot you?"
18:55:01  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: our defence minister admitted to it being a war. and then he had to step down, because of copyright infringement
18:55:44  <__ln__> finnish defence forces doesn't participate in wars abroad, but they can participate in a crisis.
18:56:15  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: german military forces cannot take part in offensive wars
18:56:22  <Eddi|zuHause> it says so in the constitution
18:56:36  <__ln__> what about offensive crises?
18:56:37  <Eddi|zuHause> the americans forced us to put that in, even.

18:58:57  <__ln__> still amazes me that germany wasn't denied having submarines. finland was, even though the whole fleet was as much as five during the war(s).
19:00:26  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: they tried that after WWI
19:00:51  <Eddi|zuHause> which lead to that giant disaster in the first place
19:02:47  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: i think the versailles treaty said something like "germany may have 6 warships"
19:04:52  <frosch123> which was obviously a mistake; they should have let them allowed to dump all money into useless ships
19:05:28  <Eddi|zuHause> i think in the late 1920s a government actually broke up over money for renewing those warships

20:47:48  <juanjo> @peter1138: about r24933, it is not per company as the commit states
20:47:56  <juanjo> you can set the same name for groups of different vehicle type, but not for different companies; ie, if a company has a group of trains named Goods, then other companies cannot name a group of trains with the name Goods
20:48:09  <juanjo> see , although I would choose a shorter name for the function.
20:50:22  <frosch123> hmm, didn't we have that name issue already before with something else?
20:50:39  <frosch123> i remember some discussion about what happening when taking over companies
20:53:18  <juanjo> ok. Is it troublesome to have two groups named the same way?
20:54:10  <juanjo> I guess it can be confusing after taking over a company having two groups with the same name
20:54:45  <frosch123> i don't quite remember the argument :) i only remember that SmatZ was involved :)
20:55:53  <juanjo> is there any function that depends on group names (apart from IsUniqueGroupName()) ?
20:55:56  <NGC3982> __ln__: Nope, i guess i'm there soon, though.
20:56:46  <frosch123> i think group names only appear in the group list and in the caption of the autoreplace window
20:57:49  <peter1138> oh well
20:58:06  <peter1138> could just remove the uniqueness test completely
20:58:13  <peter1138> it's not like it's hugely important
20:59:48  <juanjo> it is important names are unique, so you know which group you are autoreplacing
21:00:18  <frosch123> well, you can always blame it on the player :p
21:00:27  <frosch123> it's important for town names, so you know where stuff is
21:00:35  <juanjo> but you should name the groups the way you like, regardless of competitors group names
21:00:40  <peter1138> you choose the name, if you need it unique you make it unique?
21:00:43  <frosch123> but groups...
21:01:08  <frosch123> though maybe they should act like the vehicles
21:01:27  <frosch123> if you name two groups the same, one is appended a "2" automatically
21:01:36  <peter1138> heh
21:01:46  <peter1138> that's only on cloning a vehicle isn't it?
21:01:59  <frosch123> no idea :)
21:02:47  <peter1138> besides...
21:03:23  <juanjo> what about resetting group names when a company is acquired?
21:03:27  <frosch123> what's that? subgroups?
21:03:34  <peter1138> subgroups, yes
21:03:50  <peter1138> juanjo, doable. if nameisalreadyused, name = null
21:03:52  <frosch123> i thought groups are uncool :p you want rules to form groups
21:03:54  <Supercheese> Or appending "<acquiredCompanyName>" or some variant to the acquired groups
21:04:16  <Supercheese> Coal Trains -- BlahBlah Transport
21:04:18  <peter1138> everybody wants rules for everyhing :-(
21:04:30  <juanjo> i always thought groups shouldn't exist and use orderlists instead
21:04:38  <peter1138> always a pain in the arse to design a nice rule system, gui and code-wise
21:04:45  <peter1138> juanjo, yes well
21:04:47  <frosch123> peter1138: it just fits with conditional orders and programmable signals :)
21:05:02  <peter1138> i'm contemplating making the order list window...
21:05:37  <peter1138> they don't have names though
21:05:58  <juanjo> supercheese: instead of appending, just "Acquired company name: blablabla"
21:06:00  <peter1138> or an owner, actually, heh
21:06:12  <Supercheese> juanjo: Yeah, something like that
21:06:49  <peter1138> non-unique group names along with sub-groups, but all the acquired company's groups in a sub-group
21:06:54  <peter1138> *put

21:12:43  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm just thinking: "one troll? hundreds!!!"
21:13:54  <Rubidium> those who say someone is a troll, is likely the troll, right? So if I interpret that right, I'm the troll now. Q.E.D.
21:14:02  <peter1138> hmm, is it possible to share orders between different vehicle types?
21:14:09  <Rubidium> no
21:14:30  <Rubidium> probably not even between aircraft/helicopters and truck/bus
21:14:48  <Rubidium> or at least there's lot of checks ensuring the vehicle can "reach" the station
21:15:07  <Rubidium> "reach" as in: has bay/landing spot/whatever that supports the type
21:16:10  <peter1138> indeed
21:16:16  <peter1138> bus/truck must match
21:17:49  *** Elukka [] has joined #openttd
21:18:41  <peter1138> hmm
21:19:24  <peter1138> dst->orders.list = src->orders.list
21:19:32  <peter1138> means it's using the same OrderList, right?
21:19:45  <Rubidium> looks like it
21:19:47  <peter1138> so why does it check if it can allocate a new orderlist?
21:19:55  <Rubidium> for another case?
21:20:00  <Rubidium> where is it exactly?
21:20:01  <andythenorth> hrm
21:20:07  <andythenorth> my comment was genuine
21:20:10  <andythenorth> what is TROLL?
21:20:11  <peter1138> order_cmd.cpp:1491
21:20:24  <peter1138> specifically in the CO_SHARE case
21:20:39  <Eddi|zuHause> not everything that you think is genious is actually genious
21:21:04  <Eddi|zuHause> like, i did stop me from making about 10 posts to that topic since yesterday
21:21:19  <FLHerne> Eddi|zuHause: Especially that spelling of genius :P
21:21:25  <Rubidium> peter1138: order.list == NULL in that case
21:21:29  <andythenorth> genious probably is a real work
21:21:34  <Rubidium> so it assigns NULL to dst->orders.list
21:21:36  <andythenorth> if you can have ingenious...
21:21:43  <andythenorth> then defacto, there is probably genious
21:21:44  <Rubidium> and AddToShared then constructs the OrderList
21:21:47  * FLHerne finds the dictionary
21:21:57  <Eddi|zuHause> i only reported his original post that just said "troll", with the reason: "troll"
21:22:01  <frosch123> [22:21] <Eddi|zuHause> like, i did stop me from making about 10 posts to that topic since yesterday <- that's certainly genious
21:22:05  <Eddi|zuHause> THAT was genious :p
21:22:15  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: is he a trolll?  I think he's genuine
21:22:21  <andythenorth> I think he's also feeling hurt

21:24:25  <andythenorth> which is highly valuable

21:25:28  <Eddi|zuHause> FLHerne: well, i can only deal with logical spellings  :p

21:26:37  <Eddi|zuHause> FLHerne: for sure i'd also spell it genitive
21:26:52  <Rubidium> but it's the 2 inch version of the Oxford dictionary
21:26:54  <FLHerne> andythenorth: That one doesn't count :P
21:27:00  <andythenorth> of course it counts :P
21:27:24  <FLHerne> Rubidium: Mine's about 2 inches, but it also has a thesaurus that I never use...

21:34:10  <Eddi|zuHause> FLHerne: what you miss when you take the dictionary as authoritive how to write things, is that the dictionary is just a reflection on how things are written. which is somewhat recursive
21:34:52  <FLHerne> Eddi|zuHause: There are too many words (and spellings) already :P
21:36:24  <Rubidium> though I think English has less words than Dutch or German (though there are more words in the English dictionary)
21:36:56  <Rubidium> but in at least Dutch there's mostly a single spelling
21:37:48  <Rubidium> with English and its "dialects", especially American, there are annoying differences in spelling
21:38:43  <Rubidium> how one can annoy coworkers by writing kilometre
21:40:25  <FLHerne> Rubidium: That's the correct spelling :D

22:49:03  <andythenorth> one is invalid

22:49:48  <V453000> that thread is a joke from the start :)
22:50:02  <andythenorth> not entirely
22:50:05  <andythenorth> GS is done :)
22:50:20  <andythenorth> so the OP called it correctly
22:50:30  <Zuu> So next version have to be 2.1 to correct for not making the previous version 2.0?
22:50:58  <andythenorth> :)
22:53:18  <Zuu> That said, it is quite useful that so far, x in 1.x give the last digit in the year it was released.
23:01:46  <FLHerne> Is there anything that *would* inspire a 2.0 release?
23:02:45  <FLHerne> Cargo routing of some sort, perhaps? Underground layer (if even possible)?
23:03:05  * FLHerne can't really think of anything that would have a huge impact on the game
23:04:27  <planetmaker> That's one of the questions, FLHerne :-)
23:05:04  <planetmaker> layered map array with rotation maybe. and a re-worked client-server model :D
23:05:05  <FLHerne> planetmaker: Did anyone think of an anwer? :P
23:05:19  <planetmaker> yeah... people in that thread ;-)
23:05:43  <NGC3982> It's in the middle of the night and i am hungry.
23:05:45  <FLHerne> Did anyone who actually has something to do with development/numbering think of one?
23:05:46  <NGC3982> Well, that sucks.
23:06:14  <planetmaker> of an answer?
23:06:39  <NGC3982> And i hate trams.
23:06:47  <planetmaker> we started the thread as we were unsure. 1.0 had a clear vision: all what TTD could but all on its own, a 100% free game
23:07:01  <NGC3982>
23:07:03  <planetmaker> But the question is: what's the vision for the future?
23:07:05  <NGC3982> All the frickin' times..
23:07:12  <planetmaker> What do we want to achieve? And aim for?
23:07:27  <planetmaker> just piling features is no vision :-)
23:07:40  <NGC3982> planetmaker: Is that no longer a notion that the developers push forward?
23:07:49  <NGC3982> The 100% free game.
23:07:59  <planetmaker> we're there. We achieved that goal
23:08:40  <NGC3982> I would not say it's a thing that you solve once, and never turn back too.
23:09:05  <NGC3982> Developers leave, and developers come. Are you sure the non commercial window that you look trough is there in ten years?
23:09:06  <V453000> it was a milestone for 1.0 is what matters here :)
23:09:34  <NGC3982> Indeed.
23:09:36  <NGC3982> I guess.
23:10:09  <planetmaker> NGC3982, no-one can change the license OpenTTD is distributed under
23:10:34  <NGC3982> I see.
23:10:51  <planetmaker> so with GPL as license, that's feasible. But everyone will always be able to get the source code and just compile themselves
23:10:55  <NGC3982> Does that apply to everything connected to the game? NewGRF's, and such?
23:11:02  <planetmaker> and is allowed to give it away for free
23:11:02  <Terkhen> good night
23:11:19  <V453000> each newgrf has its own license NGC3982
23:11:19  <planetmaker> NewGRFs are their own thing. As you should know. they have separate licenses
23:11:22  <planetmaker> night, Terkhen
23:11:32  <NGC3982> Ok.
23:12:07  <planetmaker> and there are enough people writing newgrfs which exercise quite rigidly their copyright and don't grant any rights to the user than simply using hte newgrf
23:12:21  <NGC3982> I see.
23:14:56  <planetmaker> it's actually worse with admin scripts... they exist. But none is available
23:18:37  <Supercheese> I think most people don't even know admin scripts exist, or what they are
23:18:46  <Supercheese> I'm not even sure
23:18:50  <planetmaker> that's likely right
23:19:01  <planetmaker> but most people don't need them either
23:19:06  <NGC3982> I have no idea what they are.
23:19:08  <Supercheese> some server-side thingy that communicates with/via admin port
23:19:12  <Supercheese> my guess
23:19:24  <planetmaker> yes. control interface for servers

23:56:02  <Superuser> NEIN
23:57:49  <Eddi|zuHause> Supercheese: you can use 8bpp zoom sprites, then the action colours work exactly like before
23:58:12  <Supercheese> Yes, I'm testing if I convert the renders to 8bpp if they look 'good enough'
23:58:18  *** Celestar_ [] has joined #openttd
23:58:45  <Eddi|zuHause> Supercheese: with 32bpp there's some overlay, but i have no clue how it actually works
23:58:51  <Supercheese> Yeah...
