04:03:25  <Bad_Brett> hello
04:03:41  <Supercheese> Greetings
04:05:00  <Bad_Brett> what's up?
04:05:45  <Supercheese> Playing OTTD in 1882 atm
04:05:55  <Supercheese> wondering if I should add some patches to the build I'm using...
04:06:21  <Bad_Brett> decisions, decisions...
04:07:04  <Supercheese> Also being lazy and not working on my grfs
04:07:08  <Supercheese> although I should, sometime
04:07:43  <Bad_Brett> yeah you should
04:08:32  <Bad_Brett> want a sneak peek of my latest ...industry? :)
04:10:27  <Supercheese> Industry eh
04:11:03  <Bad_Brett>
04:11:05  <Bad_Brett> :D
04:12:26  <Supercheese> Neato, reminds my of Civ3/4
04:12:29  <Supercheese> Whale resources
04:12:34  <Supercheese> reminds me*
04:13:20  <Bad_Brett> yes!
04:16:19  <Bad_Brett> it will be one of the early sources for oil production... before oil wells were used

07:53:00  <peter1138> should i go "value + bool" or "value + (bool ? 1 : 0)" ?
08:01:44  <planetmaker> moin
08:01:56  <planetmaker> peter1138: the latter. Some compilers will otherwise complain

08:25:01  <peter1138> hmm
08:25:04  <peter1138> sounds like a bug

08:25:35  <kamnet> Morning. Anyone around?

08:25:40  <peter1138> nobody
08:26:07  <kamnet> Ah, good to know!

08:30:40  <Supercheese>
08:30:50  <Supercheese> oh hmm

08:32:40  <Supercheese> @__@
08:33:45  <peter1138> waste of time
08:33:54  <Supercheese> Blaaah, I hate having to close and reopen OTTD when I update my grf
08:34:39  <peter1138> use a better os then :p
08:35:04  <Supercheese> Pretty sure the non-OTTD games I play only support Windows
08:35:22  <kamnet> There's a version of OpenTTD for OS/2 Warp??
08:35:23  <peter1138> non-OTTD games? what is this
08:35:38  <peter1138> kamnet, there was
08:35:59  <Supercheese> I've got World of Warplanes idling in the background
08:37:37  <kamnet> Well it took a few hours, but I've got all my OpenTTD builds and all my NewGRFs moved over to Skydrive. :D
08:43:10  <kamnet> Now I just need ChillCore's Patch Pack to behave along with everything else :D
08:43:42  <peter1138> dropbox woo
08:44:01  <Supercheese> Oh man ChillPP
08:44:10  <Supercheese> people still use it?
08:44:27  <peter1138> or better, sparkleshare
08:44:30  <kamnet> I've got a game that I've been playing since November 2010 on it.
08:44:38  <Supercheese> Ah, savegame compatibility
08:44:40  <Supercheese> that makes sense
08:45:14  <__ln__> kamnet: Yes, there is/was a version for OS/2 Warp.
08:45:17  <kamnet> If it wasn't for the fact that I've got such a great game going, I'd probably give it up. But considering all the hours of work I've put into it, and I've only maybe used 15% of the map...
08:46:18  <Supercheese> one of those huge maps, eh?
08:46:37  <kamnet> That said, give me a PP that has CargoDest, More Height Levels, and a daylength patch along with something 1.2.x or higher, I'd give it up.
08:47:50  <kamnet> Not terribly huge, just 2048x2048. It spawned just right that I got really nice groupings of feeder services that can be networked into larger cities, and they're close enough that I can make really nice looking station layouts.
08:48:39  <kamnet> I haven't even really focused on passenger services, I've got enough work on my hands with FIRS & CD just getting all the industry chains serviced.
08:49:38  <kamnet> __ln__: It shouldn't surprise me that there was a Warp version. I always wanted to try Warp.

08:55:38  <Pikka> stop that
08:56:23  <peter1138> pikka
08:56:24  <peter1138> pikka
08:56:24  <kamnet> I must have missed that, otherwise I would have stopped that. What did that do?
08:56:34  <Pikka> peeterpeeter
08:56:38  <peter1138> want to draw 63 extra sprites per rail type?
08:56:47  <Pikka> why not?
08:57:07  <Pikka> actually not really
08:57:34  <peter1138> for le junctions
08:57:45  <Pikka> le true
08:57:51  <Pikka> actually, while you're there
08:58:50  <Pikka> it would be nice to be able to toggle autoreplace between replace now and "when old" without having to stop autoreplacing in between :)
08:59:40  <Eddi|zuHause> see, i'm not the only one making "completely different feature" suggestions :p
09:00:52  <Supercheese> kamnet: 2048x2048 maps are huge :P
09:01:15  <Supercheese> do they even go higher?
09:01:57  <peter1138> Eddi|zuHause, 2 wrongs make a right, of course!
09:02:02  <peter1138> Pikka, i never knew that dropdown was there
09:02:39  <peter1138> also it should auto-select the currently replacing vehicle
09:02:44  <kamnet> Supercheese: in CPP they can go up to 8192x8192.
09:02:50  <Supercheese> O__O
09:03:07  <Supercheese> Gigabyte savegames
09:03:10  <kamnet> and height levels up to 256
09:03:11  <peter1138> doesn't the large maps patch go up to 1 million or something hideous?
09:03:20  <Pikka> it should
09:03:54  <kamnet> I tried to create an 8k*8k map once. I gave up on the generation after 20 minutes. :D
09:04:59  <Supercheese> Haha, I made a Wright Flyer for my grf, and it's taxi speed is faster than its flight speed
09:05:14  <Supercheese> its*
09:05:15  <Supercheese> blarg
09:05:19  <peter1138> hehe
09:05:28  * Supercheese hates it's/its
09:05:57  <Supercheese> "Apostrophes are always for possessives", they said...
09:06:39  <peter1138> except on it
09:06:54  <Supercheese> Well, or contractions, I suppose
09:07:36  <peter1138> no
09:07:39  <peter1138> GRFs
09:09:08  <peter1138> Pikka, of course, someone would complain that it makes mass-updating harder
09:09:33  <Pikka> would they?
09:09:39  <SpComb> itsitis
09:09:40  <peter1138> someone would
09:09:47  <Pikka> my problem is that if you currently have "when old" selected, and then decide you want to replace /now/
09:09:58  <Pikka> you can't just click the dropdown and select "replace now", it doesn't work
09:09:59  <peter1138> yes i know
09:10:11  <Pikka> which seems like a bug to me :)
09:10:23  <peter1138> and if you did change it it would use the currently selected vehicle on the right
09:11:45  <Pikka> yes
09:13:04  <Pikka> I only just discovered that you can click on a bridge with the bridge tool to upgrade it :)
09:13:17  <Supercheese> Yep :D
09:13:48  <peter1138> :)
09:15:10  <planetmaker> :-)
09:15:19  <planetmaker> oooooold feature (I think :-P)
09:16:10  <planetmaker> Sometimes I wonder how many of OpenTTD's features are actually used by the average player... if even "we" fail to use them due to ignorance
09:17:32  <peter1138> does autoreplacing articulated trams work as expected?
09:18:06  * planetmaker doesn't remember oddities with HEQS... but not sure this statement is worth much :-)
09:18:06  <Supercheese> I dunno
09:18:20  <Pikka> I think so, I don't use them much though
09:18:28  <peter1138> me nither
09:18:31  <peter1138> +e
09:18:35  <peter1138> but that andy fellow
09:19:03  <planetmaker> him!
09:19:19  <Pinkbeast> I seem to recall some oddities with the refit-to-size HEQS trams but some time ago.
09:19:31  <planetmaker> they probably have smoke on the wrong place ;-)
09:19:39  <Supercheese> I think andy unified the cargo subtypes to help avert that
09:19:52  <Supercheese> Short/Medium/Long
09:20:18  <Supercheese> rather than X cars/Y cars/Z cars, which could be different for different vehicles
09:26:00  <planetmaker> HEQS has only 3 lengths for trams iirc. uniform for all cargos
09:26:16  <planetmaker> so that might have been the solution, yes
09:26:25  <Supercheese> Yes, but IIRC it wasn't always unified
09:26:40  <planetmaker> likely
09:26:50  <Supercheese> *version 1.4.1* Unified all cargo subtypes for trams ('short', 'medium', 'long') - helps auto-replace do a better job.
09:27:12  <planetmaker> :-)
09:27:55  *** FireFly [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:28:21  <planetmaker> it ain't broke, so don't fix it :D. Rather "fix" road types ;-)
09:28:32  <planetmaker> the ominous andy might rejoice then ;-)
09:28:38  <Pikka> mmm road types
09:29:01  <Pikka> newgrf(air)ports too please ;)
09:29:09  <Supercheese> I have a feeling road types won't be implemented for fear of people abusing them for subways
09:29:09  <planetmaker> and newports. and bridges

09:29:35  <planetmaker> Supercheese, that's not really an argument against
09:29:40  *** FireFly [] has joined #openttd
09:29:40  <MNIM> what fun is a feature if you can't even abuse it?
09:29:46  <Supercheese> ^
09:29:54  <peter1138> nobody can agree on road types because people want 1 or 2 or 3 types per tile
09:30:11  <planetmaker> :-) It simply needs an executive decision ;-)
09:30:11  <Pikka> no
09:30:27  <Pikka> silly people can't agree on road types because silly people want 2 or 3 types per tile
09:30:51  <MNIM> planetmaker: sometimes it would do openttd good to have a dictator in charge, eh?
09:30:55  <planetmaker> And... wasn't it agreed that it needs a road and a tram type? And maybe a catenary type? :D
09:30:56  <peter1138> we already have 2 which makes ownership awkward
09:31:07  <Pikka> no it wasn't, planetmaker
09:31:24  <planetmaker> tehehehe :-)
09:31:37  <peter1138> some people still think rail catenary should be separate to railtype
09:31:39  <peter1138> or something
09:31:52  <peter1138> 16 types, enough for everyone
09:32:10  <Pinkbeast> Well, I don't care how it's implemented but there is IMHO a serious need for more railtypes.
09:32:15  <peter1138> more railtype?
09:32:17  <peter1138> MORE?
09:32:26  *** Devroush [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:32:28  <Supercheese> ∞ types
09:32:34  <Pinkbeast> Er... yes?
09:32:40  <peter1138> o_O
09:32:49  <Pikka> we should have two owners per rail tile
09:32:57  <peter1138> no
09:32:58  <Pikka> so I can put my diagonal rail right next to yours
09:33:04  <Supercheese> isn't that already possible?
09:33:05  <peter1138> awkward
09:33:08  <peter1138> no
09:33:15  * Supercheese doesn't play multiplayer
09:33:20  <Supercheese> I wouldn't know :S
09:33:21  <Pinkbeast> Or so I can upgrade my pax line to maglev without comedy ensuing where it runs next to the freight line?
09:33:35  <Pikka> yes
09:34:25  <planetmaker> peter1138, having catenary as a flag instead of a railtype intrinsic property would save half of existing railtypes
09:34:44  <peter1138> planetmaker, not really
09:34:52  <Pinkbeast> planet: Perhaps I'm missing something, but haven't you just moved a bit from one place to another?
09:34:55  <planetmaker> do you look at the existing railtypes?
09:35:07  <peter1138> planetmaker, you might as well just add the extra bit you use to signify "catenary" and have 32 railtypes
09:35:08  <Pikka> also I want five different types of catenary :D
09:35:10  <planetmaker> there's RAIL, ELRL --> two
09:35:28  <peter1138> MONO -> ELMN?
09:35:32  <planetmaker> peter1138, eh?
09:35:38  <peter1138> i'm saying it's waste
09:35:56  <peter1138> you'd need a bit on the map to say whether it had catenary, right?
09:36:06  <planetmaker> peter1138, yes. But that's how it's done / used: every railtype as non + electrified version. basically
09:36:13  <peter1138> but it's not
09:36:21  <peter1138> nobody does electrified maglev or electrified monorail
09:36:37  <planetmaker> I don't argue that it's sensible for *every*. But the exageration is the clarification. You're red-herring it
09:36:40  <Pinkbeast> But in eg a NuTracks world almost all railtypes come as X or X+catenary.
09:36:42  <peter1138> no
09:37:00  <peter1138> you're saying "add a special bit so we don't have to duplicate railtypes"
09:37:17  <peter1138> but only RAIL is duplicated to ELRL
09:37:25  <planetmaker> narrow gauge + el. narrow gauge. grade A + el. grade A, same for grade B,C,D and high-speed
09:37:27  <peter1138> (yes, ignoring custom railtypes)
09:37:50  <planetmaker> ...
09:37:51  <Pinkbeast> But it's custom railtypes that provide any motivation to change anything!
09:37:59  <peter1138> seriously
09:38:04  <planetmaker> if you want to ignore custom railtypes you don't need railtypes. Or road types
09:38:08  <planetmaker> seriously
09:38:14  <peter1138> it's better to have 32 rail types with duplicates than 16 rail types which some options you can't use
09:38:48  <peter1138> you'd get an extra 2 rail types to use!
09:39:08  <peter1138> and that's assuming all combos (except monorail/maglev) can be electrified
09:39:25  <peter1138> therefore, no. adding a separating catenary bit is stupid
09:39:37  <peter1138> *separate
09:40:04  <peter1138> also you fuck up rail type labels
09:40:10  <peter1138> ELRL becomes what?
09:40:15  <peter1138> RAIL with catenary bit
09:40:33  <peter1138> that changes how testing compatibility/powered works
09:41:10  <peter1138> what about pikka's engines that are powered on both 3rd rail and catenary rail?
09:41:27  <peter1138> it doesn't need catenary, but it also can't run on just RAIL
09:41:50  <Pinkbeast> It seems to me that it's best to keep all the railtype bits in one place and let railtype authors decide how to use them - but if the paltry allocation of 16 is increased, provide some support for railtypes that work as a set of basically independent bits.
09:41:58  <peter1138> Pinkbeast, exactly!
09:42:27  <peter1138> sort of
09:42:54  <peter1138> i mean, if you're going to waste a bit in the map array for "has catenary", imho it's better to "waste it" on doubling the railtype limit
09:43:10  <planetmaker> yes. But while it's not been possibly the best design decision with railtypes, it might be good for road types to choose the better design and make "catenary" a road type property ;-) And no: not on map array. In track properties
09:43:13  <peter1138> then you get 32 railtypes instead of 16 with some with catenary
09:43:52  <Pinkbeast> s/waste/use/ but I agree completely. 32 would at least be a step in the right direction.
09:44:18  <peter1138> Pinkbeast, rail types are stored directly on the map array, that's why they're limited
09:44:30  <peter1138> sure you could "just add a byte" and have 256 rail types
09:44:32  <Pinkbeast> (In particular, it doesn't work in MP, but in SP I can imagine a kludge where you have a much wider range of potential railtypes but only 16/32 in use at once).
09:44:35  <Pinkbeast> peter: I know.
09:44:51  <peter1138> why not in MP?
09:45:18  <planetmaker> Pinkbeast, either it works in MP or it won't happen
09:45:22  <Pinkbeast> Because the 16 railtypes in use would have to be shared between the companies and...
09:45:22  <peter1138> we never add a feature that only works in SP
09:45:24  <peter1138> except cheats :p
09:45:52  <peter1138> no, you could have 9001 railtypes
09:45:52  <planetmaker> you basically can't say a savegame is MP or SP. It breaks so many things and assumptions I don't want to even start
09:45:58  <peter1138> but only 16 allowed per company
09:46:03  <peter1138> just don't merge companies
09:46:09  <planetmaker> :-)
09:46:19  <planetmaker> Now, that's an interesting concept, peter1138 :-)
09:46:25  <Pinkbeast> peter: bravo, it can work in MP!
09:46:40  * MNIM thwacks peter1138 on the head
09:46:48  <MNIM> this isn't dragonball Z.
09:46:49  <planetmaker> :-(
09:46:54  <MNIM> this is spa-*SHOT*
09:46:54  <peter1138> :-)
09:47:00  <peter1138> also, there's no free bits for stations
09:47:04  <planetmaker> @calc 16*16
09:47:05  <DorpsGek> planetmaker: 256
09:47:15  <Pikka> orly
09:47:17  <peter1138> well, that's bit 7 of m1
09:47:43  <peter1138> actually bit 7 of m1 is available rail/road station and tunnel/bridge tiles
09:47:53  <Pinkbeast> When you take over a company they eat as many of your railtype slots as they can and remaining track gets downgraded to something you are using.
09:47:55  <peter1138> add that bit and you get 32 railtypes
09:48:24  <peter1138> anyway, the concept of just 1 road type per tile is interesting
09:48:49  <peter1138> there's no reason it couldn't accomodate 2 sets of roadbits and 2 owners
09:49:13  <Pinkbeast> Let me guess, iterating over the entire map array is also discouraged?
09:49:19  <planetmaker> peter1138, ... :-( But how do I then add or remove trams? Or allow a 2nd person to build trams on my road?
09:49:27  <Pikka> this sounds familiar :D
09:49:32  <peter1138> Pinkbeast, depends how often
09:49:40  <peter1138> planetmaker, secondary owner, not too hard
09:50:03  <planetmaker> and how do I know which vehicle type? Is "tram" a flag?
09:50:08  <peter1138> of course you have to duplicate every road type :p
09:50:15  <Pikka> D:
09:50:18  <peter1138> tram as a flag is horrible
09:50:21  <Pinkbeast> Once per company merger (and perhaps provide a feature in the player UI for "change all track of type X to type Y")
09:50:22  *** michi_cc_ [] has quit [Server closed connection]
09:50:29  <planetmaker> but how else, if as one road type?
09:50:48  <peter1138> planetmaker, one road type == road, one road type == tram, one road type == rotr
09:50:53  <planetmaker> you'll put the combinatoric explosion in the road type itself. And make combining newgrfs like impossible
09:51:03  <peter1138> trams are compatible with tram & rotr
09:51:15  *** michi_cc [] has joined #openttd
09:51:18  *** mode/#openttd [+v michi_cc] by ChanServ
09:51:18  <Pikka> exactly the same as with railtypes
09:51:31  <peter1138> fuck combining newgrfs
09:51:35  <Pikka> stop thinking of trams as anything other than "road vehicles which need a particular type of road"
09:51:45  <peter1138> they all look shit and are unbalanced when combined anyway
09:51:52  <Pikka> ?
09:51:54  <planetmaker> ...
09:52:05  <Pikka> why can't you combine grfs?
09:52:26  <peter1138> usually they have completely different price rances
09:52:27  <peter1138> *ranges
09:52:31  <peter1138> and running costs
09:52:33  <planetmaker> So I just add the new "dirt roads" NewGRF. And I simply can't have the trans cross the dirt road? Sounds... broken
09:52:34  <peter1138> and capacities
09:52:38  <planetmaker> would even work now
09:52:50  <planetmaker> if we just added roads and no new trams
09:52:58  <peter1138> yup, you'd need a dirt+tram type
09:53:11  <peter1138> who knows
09:53:11  <Pikka> you wouldn't, but yeah :)
09:53:12  <planetmaker> honestly, that's quite stupid IMHO
09:53:44  <peter1138> (allow multiple engine sets was the worst thing i ever did)
09:53:50  <Pikka> no it isn't, peter
09:53:51  <Pikka> anyway
09:53:56  <peter1138> yeah it is
09:54:00  <planetmaker> lol
09:54:01  <Pikka> trams and tramtrack grfs
09:54:03  <peter1138> even you wanted to prohibit it at some point!
09:54:11  <Pikka> no different from 3rd rail vehicles and 3rd rail track grfs
09:55:03  <planetmaker> road types: bool is_tram; bool needs_catenary;
09:55:09  <Pikka> no
09:55:12  <peter1138> no no no
09:55:17  <peter1138> road type: tram
09:55:24  <peter1138> is_tram is useless
09:55:30  <planetmaker> if is_tram == true --> draw as overlay on road. Otherwise not. needs_catenary for road *or* tram: draw catenary
09:55:35  <Pikka> <Pikka> stop thinking of trams as anything other than "road vehicles which need a particular type of road"
09:55:50  <peter1138> planetmaker, and tram tracks without road below?
09:56:13  <planetmaker> peter1138, in order to define drawing order. And to avoid two trams or two roads on same tile
09:56:23  <planetmaker> but to allow road + tram
09:56:30  <Pikka> NO
09:56:30  <planetmaker> i.e. like now
09:56:35  <peter1138> so i can have tram & trolleybus crossing?
09:56:38  <peter1138> *can't
09:56:43  <Pikka> planetmaker, there's no such thing as "tram", stop it
09:56:55  <planetmaker> peter1138, yes, you can. why not?
09:57:06  <peter1138> but you just disallowed two trams on the same tile
09:57:13  <peter1138> but hey
09:57:20  <peter1138> is a trolleybus a tram or a road vehicle?
09:57:21  <planetmaker> peter1138, trolleybus are road vehicles, not tram
09:57:29  <planetmaker> roadtype + catenary
09:57:36  <Pikka> trams are road vehicles, not tram :D
09:57:55  *** Flygon_ is now known as Flygon
09:58:08  <planetmaker> ok: how do you, Pikka, want to tell OpenTTD that first the road, then the tram tracks need drawing?
09:58:17  <Pikka> I don't
09:58:20  <planetmaker> call it how you like then
09:58:30  <Pikka> it will draw the road tile
09:58:33  <Flygon> Clearly we need to mod OpenTTD to let trams on train tracks
09:58:37  * Flygon runs away quickly
09:58:39  <Pikka> which may or may not have tram tracks on it
09:58:51  <planetmaker> that's a step back wrt even now
09:59:10  <Pikka> it's a step back from a horrible mess, yes
10:00:19  <planetmaker> how is it a mess?
10:00:37  <planetmaker> two different road types. two different sprite sets. easy
10:00:43  <planetmaker> you don't have that with rail tiles
10:00:51  <Flygon> If I can make a silly statement, it's always annoyed me how roads are the size of one track width, despite the size of one road land irl being the same size as one lane irl
10:00:53  <planetmaker> there you always only had and have one
10:00:56  <Flygon> But, I know it's a holdback from 1994 :3
10:01:14  <Pikka> yes, and it's so much simpler, innit?
10:01:40  <planetmaker> Pikka, let's code trains as ships. Easy. No signals, no junctions to care, etc
10:02:49  <Pikka> sure, except trams /are/ road vehicles.  there's no difference between trams and road vehicles except trams have a hacky implementation of semi-road-type which is getting in the way of doing road types properly.
10:02:53  <Flygon> May as well make a Final Fantasy GRF
10:03:14  <Flygon> Where you have airships coupled together to create airfreight, and it looks like 1500s sailing ships
10:03:23  <Flygon> Not that that's a bad idea, mind you
10:03:34  <peter1138> Flygon, do it
10:03:53  <planetmaker> Pikka, not true. It are two different road types. Not semi
10:03:56  <Flygon> I lack both the coding competency and art skills :p
10:04:08  <planetmaker> it's mutually exclusive for a vehicle
10:04:14  <Flygon> My stuff is toonier than roger rabbit @_@
10:04:58  <Pikka> but it shouldn't be.  they're just a different kind of road vehicle and should be rolled back into a roadtypes spec which resembles the railtype spec as far as practical
10:05:32  <planetmaker> sure. I agree. But that doesn't imply there can't be two road types per tile :-)
10:06:03  <Pinkbeast> Now is not the time to mention those Simutrans trams that quite happily use heavy rail as well.
10:06:08  <planetmaker> and that's the single major difference between roads and rails
10:06:10  <Pinkbeast> ... ooops
10:06:16  <Flygon> Pinkbeast: I already mentioned it
10:06:21  <Flygon> <Flygon> Clearly we need to mod OpenTTD to let trams on train tracks
10:06:43  <Pinkbeast> Sorry. I missed the previous mention of Simutrans - when was it?
10:07:00  <Flygon> The ideal solution would be roads being one tile a lane, but we know that's impossible without breaking compatibility
10:07:12  <Flygon> Pinkbeast: I mentioned the idea, but not Simutrans
10:09:45  <Pikka> planetmaker, well, if you're going to make it happen with two roadtypes per tile, I guess I shouldn't argue. ;)  it just seems to me that one is simpler and easier
10:11:27  <Pikka> in case it's not obvious, btw, I think that OpenTTD should not ship with any "built in" tram tracks.  tram tracks in existing games should all revert to normal road, and the "tram" flag for road vehicles should be deprecated
10:11:57  <Flygon> Why not simply read the saves based on version number
10:12:09  <Flygon> If it's below a certain number, offer to convert it to the new format
10:12:47  <Pikka> regardless of how roadtypes are implemented, trying to salvage the existing system would be more trouble than it's worth, imo :)
10:13:10  <Flygon> Concured
10:13:28  <planetmaker> Flygon, you ... state the obvious which OpenTTD does since the beginning of time... silently
10:14:02  <Flygon> planetmaker: Wouldn't the change of something as fundumental as the roadtypes be potentially dangerous to convert?
10:14:22  <planetmaker> yes... and?
10:14:39  <planetmaker> look how long our conversion file already is
10:14:58  <planetmaker> a mere 3000 lines. And that doesn't include everything
10:15:05  <Flygon> Lemme rephrase this
10:15:21  <Flygon> I've been not involved with the development of OpenTTD
10:15:55  <Flygon> So half the stuff I've been saying is probably from foggy memories of forum posts x.x
10:19:25  <Flygon> Point is, almost everything I've worked with, none of it even resembles OpenTTD

10:40:55  <peter1138> mine died eventually :(
10:41:28  <Pinkbeast> At least the emulators are good these days. I think the Spectrum boys had a hidden advantage in having such crappy hardware - emulation got sorted out much earlier.

12:08:47  <Eddi|zuHause> <peter1138> therefore, no. adding a separating catenary bit is stupid <- i think there needs to be some UI improvement to easily switch between electrified/unelectrified rail, without going through the lengthy (hidden) dropdown menu
12:09:09  <goodger> I concur
12:09:18  <peter1138> i disagree
12:09:58  <Eddi|zuHause> at the least, add the railtype dropdown to the rail toolbar
12:10:26  <peter1138> that is more reasonable
12:10:35  <Eddi|zuHause> next to the convert button
12:10:47  *** Sacro [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:11:06  <goodger> not only for the UI but because the presence or absence of a catenary is not necessarily a distinct "railtype"
12:11:20  <peter1138> yes it is
12:11:35  <Eddi|zuHause> as an extension, allow the NewGRF to split that dropdown into two, at the NewGRF's choice to separate rail and catenary, or something completely different
12:11:51  <peter1138> no
12:12:11  <Eddi|zuHause> it helps solve some combinatoric explosion
12:12:29  <Eddi|zuHause> don't change the internal railtype labels, but change how the railtypes are presented to the user
12:13:12  <goodger> with nutracks there are a baffling array of track types which are really just four track types plus all combinations of third rail and catenery
12:13:20  <peter1138> no
12:13:45  <Pinkbeast> I'm not sure 16 yet counts as a baffling array
12:13:49  <goodger> I feel that could be better handled
12:14:20  <Eddi|zuHause> Pinkbeast: all numbers >7 are problematic
12:14:39  <peter1138> don't use track sets with so many combinations if it's confusing you
12:14:43  <goodger> Pinkbeast: please forgive my hyperbole, but it's certainly a vast increase over TTD's original three kinds of track
12:15:05  <Eddi|zuHause> peter1138: it's not about confusing, it's about cumbersome
12:15:13  <peter1138> don't use track sets with so many combinations if it's cumbersome
12:15:45  <Eddi|zuHause> peter1138: you frequently change between "128km/h with catenary" and "128km/h without catenary", but less frequently between "128km/h" and "180km/h" railtypes
12:15:51  <goodger> (and those were actually three distinct kinds of track)
12:16:32  <V453000> I think the whole rail speed limits are stupid, howgh
12:16:44  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, but that is not the point :)
12:16:54  <V453000> I know :P
12:17:07  <Pinkbeast> ... why?
12:17:25  <V453000> speed should be set by engine, not tracks
12:17:39  <V453000> doing it by tracks just shows that the train set has dumb train stats
12:17:43  <Pinkbeast> That's just circular.
12:17:57  <goodger> in the real world, both the engines and the tracks have speed limits
12:18:15  <V453000> yes real world also doesnt have pixels
12:18:22  <V453000> not that I know of at least
12:18:38  <Pinkbeast> Err so the engines should just fly through the air. It's not the real world.
12:18:43  <Eddi|zuHause> tracks don't have speed limits, signal distances and curves have speed limits
12:19:21  <Pinkbeast> Tracks _do_ have speed limits - presence or absence of superelevation, ability to sustain wear from trains at high speeds.
12:19:24  <Eddi|zuHause> (except when the tracks are horribly worn down)
12:19:41  <V453000> and how is that relative to the game ? :)
12:19:46  <Eddi|zuHause> superelevation, wear ==> curve-related
12:19:48  *** Sacro [~ben@] has joined #openttd
12:19:55  <Pinkbeast> And signal distances are not meaningfully represented by OTTD signals.
12:20:10  <goodger> it's relevant to the game because the game is a simulation
12:20:34  <Pinkbeast> Eddi: But you can't superelevate a curve; OTTD doesn't directly represent curves less than 45 degrees; wear matters even on straight tracks.
12:20:55  <Pinkbeast> I mean, in OTTD there is no way to superelevate a curve to permit higher speeds
12:21:58  <Pinkbeast> Track for high-speed trains _is_ much more expensive and it is in my view nice to see that in the game.
12:22:09  <Pinkbeast> (also, axle loading limits, hem-hem)
12:22:24  <peter1138> personally i would've gone with "normal tracks" and "high speed tracks"
12:22:43  <peter1138> and high speed tracks don't need 3rd rail or non-electrified variants
12:22:47  <V453000> but what is the technical difference for the game?
12:22:52  <V453000> nothing, except cost
12:23:05  <V453000> oh and prevented rail crossings (:DDD)
12:23:07  <peter1138> yup cost
12:23:13  <Pinkbeast> V453: I'm not sure I even understand your question.

12:23:33  <V453000> trains behave the same on these tracks
12:23:45  <Pinkbeast> Except they go slower, yes... is this not expected?
12:23:46  <V453000> except that it obviously prevents trains X from going full speed there
12:23:55  <V453000> that is ... completely useless?

12:24:04  *** SpComb^ [] has joined #openttd
12:24:14  <V453000> if the trains have their stats correctly, their usefulness should be defined by those, not tracks
12:24:25  <Pinkbeast> This is just circular again.
12:24:39  <V453000> if tracks are used to reduce speed of trains, and they are still useful, then their speed is apparently too high in the first place
12:25:00  <V453000> cost is completely irrelevant
12:25:04  <Pinkbeast> Errr tracks aren't "used to reduce speed of trains". Tracks reduce the speed of trains because they need upgrading.
12:25:20  <V453000> right
12:25:25  <V453000> so absolutely no effect
12:25:32  <goodger> what
12:25:38  <V453000> cause upgraded tracks will do nothing then? wont even slow trains down
12:25:40  <Pinkbeast> Except reducing the speed of trains which is what you'd expect a speed limit on tracks to do.
12:26:10  <V453000> tracks after upgrade will still limit speed? :D
12:26:16  <Flygon> Just a note
12:26:17  <Pinkbeast> goodger: V453 thinks everyone plays the same way he does; set up a cash cow and then buy the best of everything.
12:26:38  <Flygon> The pathfinder will do anything to put High Speed Trains on FASTER routes, even if the trip would be LONGER
12:26:38  <V453000> I dont think that at all, I know you play differently
12:26:40  <Pinkbeast> In that mode of play, of course, low-speed tracks serve no purpose.
12:26:53  <Flygon> eg. it'll prefer 1000 tiles of 240km/h track over 100 tiles of 160km/h track
12:26:58  <goodger> Pinkbeast: well, that is also how I play
12:26:59  <V453000> it isnt any mode
12:27:21  <V453000> having everything expensive doesnt do anything at all, making money in openttd is trivial
12:27:31  <V453000> it just makes you wait longer
12:27:44  <Pinkbeast> _If_ you just set up a cash cow and buy the best of everything.
12:27:44  <goodger> but I don't spend £85k per tile on unlimited-speed track when the trains are going to be running at 75 mph
12:27:45  <V453000> eventually build less expensively, but still only prolonges the game

12:28:34  *** mode/#openttd [+o peter1138] by ChanServ
12:28:37  <V453000> to be fair, nutracks with higher cost setting do mean that you upgrade trains only when you have money for the tracks
12:28:42  <peter1138> stupid servers
12:28:43  <V453000> but again that is what train set should do
12:28:54  <Pinkbeast> Says you - but that's purely circular.
12:28:57  <goodger> actually, since I've been playing with cargodist, I've been very stingy
12:29:38  <V453000> ok, says me, and what does you say that tracks give as a gameplay feature?
12:29:48  <V453000> it "fixes" train sets, ok, next?
12:30:04  <goodger> it doesn't fix train sets
12:30:12  <V453000> oh it so does
12:30:14  <Pinkbeast> We already explained that; it's just your inability to understand how anyone else plays the game means you don't comprehend. Sorry.
12:30:29  <V453000> I am asking for a simple answer
12:30:37  <V453000> that has nothing to do with me understanding
12:31:06  <Pinkbeast> Prioritising track upgrades versus other expenditure of money and human attention is fun.
12:31:30  <goodger> it provides a separate, infrastructure-based constraint on the speed of the train, which is more in line with how railways actually behave than having all trains run at their maximum speed on all routes
12:31:46  <peter1138> Flygon, that just means the penalties applied are too steep
12:31:47  <Pinkbeast> And as goodger says it also feels more like a "real" railway.
12:31:55  <V453000> :D ok I had enough fun

12:48:19  <V453000> as that moment inevitably comes at some point of the game
12:48:23  <Pinkbeast> Sigh.
12:48:35  <Pinkbeast> Think about starting another game.
12:48:43  <V453000> :DD
12:49:05  <Pinkbeast> But I also make human attention a limited resource. If I was playing with base railtypes, for example, I won't just select the whole map and electrify it.
12:49:07  <V453000> really? :D
12:49:13  <Pinkbeast> I'll electrify one line after another.
12:50:28  <peter1138> hell yeah, i don't electrify the whole thing

13:29:42  <V453000> hm, Q: I have some railtype defined by my newGRF. What I want to do is make it compatibile with both original bridges, and newbridges. But newbridges have a bit different bridge heads which need a slightly different offset for the ramps. Is there any way to automatically check if newbridges are loaded within nuts, or should I just add that as a parameter?
13:29:57  <V453000> aka can a newgrf check for other loaded newgrfs?
13:30:07  <Pikka> yes it can
13:30:41  <V453000> k now to find out how in NML :D
13:31:24  <V453000> well, that later :)
13:31:30  <peter1138> or newbridges should be fixed ;p
13:31:31  <V453000> thanks Pikka :)
13:33:02  <Eddi|zuHause> V453000: FIRS has lots of checks for other newgrfs
13:33:11  <V453000> right :)
13:33:28  <V453000> well I just figured it might be better to have sprites first before doing such a feature :P
13:35:03  <Eddi|zuHause> not entirely sure what you mean with needing different offsets though
13:35:22  <Eddi|zuHause> and there are several bridge sets
13:35:51  <V453000> the ramps are of the same shape, but different position
13:35:51  <V453000> somehow
13:36:08  <Eddi|zuHause> newbridges, combined bridge and road set, total bridge renewal, ...
13:36:10  <V453000> I know, but has some custom heads which wont fit my tracks at all in fact
13:36:24  <V453000> *tbrs has
13:36:40  <V453000> and the rest of tbrs seems compatible with original
13:36:52  <V453000> so I might just need that one check for the ramps for newbridges
13:38:59  <Eddi|zuHause> i think combroads has mostly the same bridges as newbridges, so you should check for that as well
13:39:18  <V453000> I dont think I even used that thing ever :D

14:08:39  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, planets are just collateral "damage" :-P
14:10:17  <Eddi|zuHause> so what are twin stars then? :p

14:12:33  <goodger> furries have made a profitable industry out of doing so
14:12:45  <NGC3982> I for some time ago heard that our current observation states that most star have a twin
14:12:48  <NGC3982> Thus, many lesbians
14:13:12  <Eddi|zuHause> what's "most" in this context?
14:13:24  <goodger> I think it was about 70%?
14:13:30  <goodger> maybe more
14:13:32  <NGC3982> I do not know, really.
14:13:52  <planetmaker> most stars are in multiple systems. Not most stars systems are a multiple system :-)
14:13:55  <planetmaker> Note the difference
14:14:20  <NGC3982> I guess that is size-of-orbit related?
14:14:39  <planetmaker> No. Simple number theory
14:14:57  <NGC3982> Then, i did not understand that.
14:14:59  <Eddi|zuHause> if i have two star systems, and one of them is a twin-star system, then 66% of all stars are in a twin system
14:15:06  <planetmaker> if 2/3 of the stars are in binary systems, still 50% of the stellar systems are single
14:15:32  <NGC3982> Oh
14:15:46  <Eddi|zuHause> because twin systems have twice as many stars
14:15:51  <Celestar> :P
14:15:54  <NGC3982> Yes, of course.
14:16:54  <Celestar> planetmaker: well. ternary and higher star systems also bias that observation
14:16:54  <Eddi|zuHause> so if 33% of all star systems are twin systems, then 50% of all stars are in twin star systems
14:17:13  <NGC3982> But in a cosmological sense, a star that orbits another star closely with planets (a "two star system") is the same thing as a twin star system, with only orbit size in difference?
14:17:22  <NGC3982> Or is this some magical language thing i have missunderstood.
14:17:37  <Celestar> NGC3982: hm?
14:17:40  <Eddi|zuHause> Celestar: i'd assume those get rarer so that the influence drops asymptotically
14:17:46  <NGC3982> Yes, this was a magical language thing.
14:18:21  <planetmaker> planets don't matter when considering multiplicity of stellar systems. Planets are just dust
14:18:46  <NGC3982> planetmaker: If not, what is the difference of a two star system, and a twin star system?
14:18:51  <NGC3982> That was the thing that puzzled me.
14:18:57  <planetmaker> And yes, the multiple stellar systems with n>=3 become increasingly rare
14:18:59  <Celestar> afaik triple star systems are not THAT rare
14:19:09  <Eddi|zuHause> NGC3982: i think of it as the twin star is a planet that got large enough to shine on its own
14:19:12  <planetmaker> NGC3982, there's none?
14:19:33  <Celestar> "planet that got large enough to shine on its own" <- that's no planet anymore
14:19:43  <Eddi|zuHause> Celestar: semantics
14:19:50  <Celestar> unless someone on it built a huge bulb
14:19:51  <planetmaker> oh, you mean two distinct systems vs. double star? gravitationally bound is the definition of double (multiple) system
14:20:11  <planetmaker> A system generally is everything which is gravitationally bound to eachother
14:20:13  <NGC3982> planetmaker: Yes, and so i thought, that is why i noted: "< NGC3982> I guess that is size-of-orbit related?" when "two star" and "twin star" systems was mentioned.
14:20:36  <planetmaker> size of orbit = oo for two systems
14:20:40  <NGC3982> A two star system that also has a long distant twin star. Three stars in a system, but only two locally.
14:20:47  <planetmaker> i.e. "orbit" has no meaning there
14:20:48  <NGC3982> Oh, ok
14:21:16  <planetmaker> that'd be a quadruple system consisting of two close binaries. No problem with that.
14:21:23  <NGC3982> I guess i'm not supposed to argue on stuff like this, when the language hinders me from understanding basic points.

14:23:11  <planetmaker> I always believed that it's a tripple?
14:23:36  <Celestar> I wasn't sure whether Proxima is really gravitationally bound or just happens to be near :P
14:24:12  <Celestar> hm .. Septuple star systems.
14:24:59  <planetmaker> I've no special knowledge there either.
14:25:00  <Eddi|zuHause> just imagine indefinite star systems, then 7 is just a special case :p
14:25:32  <planetmaker> I read once the wiki article on it, that's it :-P
14:25:43  <Celestar> ;P
14:26:40  <planetmaker> actually makes a case that most stars AND stellar systems are single
14:28:11  <Celestar> yah.
14:28:23  <Celestar> stellar systems can't be single, can they :P
14:28:45  <NGC3982> Why not?
14:29:10  <Celestar> because afaik the definition of a stellar system is > 1 star gravitationally bound to one another :P
14:29:33  <NGC3982> Doesn't the definition allow multiple (fairly closed, but still attached by gravity) stellar systems to be "twins"?
14:29:39  *** Pikka [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
14:29:40  <NGC3982> Well, sure
14:29:55  <NGC3982> In hard science, all of the universe is one stellar system, then.
14:30:12  <Celestar> er .. no
14:30:57  <planetmaker> Celestar, a stellar system can consist of one star only
14:31:07  <NGC3982> Yes, it would. Since gravity works in infinite distance, one could propose such a thing. We do not, since we notice that stellar systems have some sort of limit to them.
14:31:21  <Celestar> planetmaker: that's a star system or planetary system :P
14:31:22  <NGC3982> And, if we can define a limit, we can also define more than one stellar system
14:31:37  <Celestar> NGC3982: gravitationally bound means C3 < 0.

14:31:46  <planetmaker> Celestar, a star system with one star can be a planetary system with a single central body. yes
14:31:51  <NGC3982> Thus, if more than one exist, we could potentially tie them together without calling them a single system. A cluster, for instance.
14:31:54  <NGC3982> Is that not correct?

14:36:13  <planetmaker> Celestar, you only make sense, if you now argue that "stellar system" is the same as Galaxy. Otherwise stellar system = star system = system where one or more stars form alone or jointly the local gravitational well which it / they reside in and which their prospective planets etc might orbit as well
14:37:13  <Celestar> planetmaker: ah from what I understood a stellar system is a binary or higher star system.

14:39:08  <NGC3982> Oh, what command/entry can i use?
14:39:18  <Celestar> ok. let's say a bunch of non-stars orbiting one or more stars is called a "planetary system". A Star system is a number of stars gravitationally bound to each other, they may or may not have planets.
14:39:22  <Celestar> ?
14:39:46  <NGC3982> That sounds about right.
14:39:51  <goodger> yarp
14:39:52  <planetmaker> I'd like to include single stars in the latter
14:40:08  <Celestar> what's the difference between a planetary system and a star system then?
14:40:15  <NGC3982> My intuition tells me that a star system does not have to include anything else than the star.
14:40:24  <planetmaker> given the ubiquity of planets: in reality none
14:40:31  <NGC3982> Eh?
14:40:33  <Celestar> planetmaker: probably

14:41:59  <planetmaker> Celestar, yes. very few
14:42:11  <Celestar> planetmaker: aren't the high-mass ones very very very friggen rare?
14:42:16  <planetmaker> big stars are very scarce
14:42:38  <planetmaker> the initial mass function peaks somewhere around half a solar mass. Thus that's most common
14:43:05  <NGC3982> So, the sun is bigger than the average?
14:43:05  <Eddi|zuHause> when i last took astronomy class, the theory was that multi-star systems likely wouldn't have planets
14:43:14  <Eddi|zuHause> but that was ages ago :p

14:51:13  <NGC3982> Eddi|zuHause: Well, that was kind of the point of these lessons. Our modern school systems can be very good at teaching how to be sceptic, but also be very bad at teaching where scepticism is appliable. As in the example you gave, the connection may be irrefutable with what at the time was modern observation.

14:52:12  <NGC3982> It doesn't have to be
14:53:17  <NGC3982> Since we have explored science and nowadays know that stuff may not be what they seem like, it's easy to say that everything is the "best of observation - right now".
14:53:33  <NGC3982> That is hard to apply in a society where your observation always leads to some kind of truth.
14:53:43  <NGC3982> God in pre-space-exploring times, for instance.
14:54:10  <Celestar> Eddi|zuHause: yeah hence we have some strange leftovers.....
14:54:30  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, like partys that have a "C" in their name
14:55:05  <NGC3982> Lawrence Krauss has a good conversation about this in A universe from nothing, where he compares astrology with what future scientists may say about the world when the expansion leads to us not observing anything else but our own galaxy.
14:56:45  <Pinkbeast> Oh, yes, I saw a story about that in Scientific American. And of course there is the interesting question of whether this has already happened.
14:56:52  <NGC3982> Yes
14:56:58  <NGC3982> And that is a horrible notion
14:57:26  <Pinkbeast> ... but I think he rightly observes that in that old universe it is very hard to form a self-consistent cosmology supported by evidence at all, which is not the position we are in.
14:57:37  <NGC3982> The best of observation leads to an ultimate theory that can under almost no circumstances be disproved due to enourmous proof and observation ..And it's ..Wrong.
14:57:54  <NGC3982> Yes, i guess.
14:58:38  <NGC3982> I guess we could potentially ignore it, though.
15:00:43  <peter1138> wibblewah
15:02:35  <Pinkbeast> Also, our cosmological theory makes predictions which prove true, which is always nice. Even if the old-universe people form a bogus cosmology, that won't work.

18:58:15  <NGC3982> :P
18:58:18  <peter1138> don't bother :)
18:58:19  <NGC3982> Oh lord
18:58:22  <NGC3982> Alright
18:58:25  <NGC3982> I'm on it.
18:58:26  <Terkhen> a week ago they actually started a "red alert for snow" but we got no snow at all
18:58:44  <NGC3982> I wonder if supports lynx.
18:58:44  <peter1138> installing it pulled in all the dependencies for you, which was handy
18:58:47  *** chrisw [] has joined #openttd
18:59:04  <Eddi|zuHause> Terkhen: in LÃŒbeck they used sharp-edged greeble, and now all the bicycles have flat tyres
18:59:08  <peter1138> there is a debian squeeze patchage on our downloads
18:59:19  <NGC3982> Squeeze? Ok..
18:59:36  *** Flygon [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:59:43  <Terkhen> heh :D
19:03:57  <NGC3982> My god
19:04:02  <NGC3982> Giant error message
19:04:14  <NGC3982> It seems it did not like to install 1.2.3 when 1.0.4 was installed.
19:04:26  <peter1138> shouldn't be a problem
19:04:34  <peter1138> it'll remove 1.0.4 to install 1.2.3...
19:05:17  <NGC3982>
19:06:17  <NGC3982> Hold on, something else is wrong.
19:06:25  <NGC3982> I could install openttd with apt-get as a user.
19:06:38  <NGC3982> But i don't seem to have the rights to use dpkg, as the same user.
19:06:42  <NGC3982> Might that be a problem, say.
19:11:38  <Belugas> nice, Eddi|zuHause ;)
19:12:53  <peter1138> you can't use apt-get as a user
19:13:07  <peter1138> you need to be root, use su, or sduo
19:13:08  <peter1138> *sudo
19:13:40  <Belugas> of sudoku
19:13:46  <Belugas> -f+r
19:13:50  <peter1138> NGC3982, okay, ignore me. remove openttd & openttd-data
19:13:59  <peter1138> NGC3982, then it'll install
19:14:03  <peter1138> but check the clock on your server
19:14:11  <peter1138> cos those errors are cos of that
19:14:20  <NGC3982> Oh, ok.
19:14:24  <NGC3982> Yet
19:14:30  * NGC3982 needs to google how to remove programs.
19:14:42  <peter1138> apt-get remove
19:14:51  <peter1138> on a deb-based system anyway
19:15:19  <NGC3982> Nice, thank you.
19:15:29  <NGC3982> Now, all i need to fix is to allow my user to install via dpkg.
19:16:31  <peter1138> nope
19:16:40  <peter1138> apt-get install sudo
19:16:52  <peter1138> adduser username sudo
19:16:55  <peter1138> logout
19:17:04  <peter1138> then you can do sudo dpkg etc
19:17:12  <NGC3982> I have sudo
19:17:18  <NGC3982> But yes, ill try that.
19:17:27  <peter1138> then add your user to the group :p
19:18:38  <NGC3982> It was already done
19:18:44  <NGC3982> I think i did that by hand.
19:18:45  <NGC3982> :D
19:22:21  <NGC3982> Let's see then
19:22:43  <NGC3982> First, i run the apt-get remove, and it confirms that openttd is not installed
19:22:50  <NGC3982> Then, i run this:
19:23:18  <NGC3982> openttd-data does not seem to be removed with sudo apt-get remove openttd.
19:23:23  <peter1138> nope
19:23:28  <Eddi|zuHause> how is your reading comprehension? he said to remove BOTH!
19:23:34  <peter1138> indeed
19:23:36  <NGC3982> Oh
19:23:39  <NGC3982> Sorry, yes.
19:23:52  * NGC3982 continues.
19:24:08  <NGC3982> There we are.
19:25:26  <NGC3982> It seems i need libicu38.
19:25:44  <peter1138> o_O
19:26:07  <Eddi|zuHause> then you probably downloaded the wrong .deb
19:26:21  <NGC3982> Hm.
19:26:28  * NGC3982 re-checks.
19:26:57  <peter1138> works for me
19:27:01  <peter1138> linux debian squeeze
19:27:09  <peter1138> you must have got linux debian lenny
19:27:15  <NGC3982> Yes, indeed i did!
19:27:29  <NGC3982> I did not see that Squeeze link until i rechecked
19:27:29  <peter1138> well done
19:27:38  <NGC3982> That's what i get for using Lynx.
19:27:40  <peter1138> 18:59 < NGC3982> Squeeze? Ok..
19:27:44  <peter1138> yersss
19:28:07  <Eddi|zuHause> something is really wrong with your reading comprehension
19:28:19  <NGC3982> I had no idea what Squeeze was.
19:29:32  <NGC3982> And it worked.
19:29:36  <NGC3982> peter1138: Thank you.
19:29:38  <peter1138> amazing ;)

20:56:56  <MNIM> D'oh. You'd think my intersection would be big enough with a HSL line crossing a 'slow' mainline with two branches
20:57:27  <MNIM> Apparently I was wrong.
20:59:42  <MNIM> well, I suppose you could call it four branches if you count the part past the station too.
21:00:33  *** George [~George@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:02:01  <MNIM> I think Ive finally found the root of my routing issues though.
21:04:29  <NGC3982> So
21:06:58  <NGC3982> There is a site with the corresponding Online Content data, right?
21:07:18  <NGC3982> For me (who cannot use the Online Content feature)?
21:07:45  <NGC3982> That seems to be BaNaNas.
21:09:32  <peter1138> technically you can
21:09:36  <peter1138> it's just not very friendly
21:10:49  <NGC3982> Yes, i noticed. My initial reaction was to look for a "Download everything" button.
21:11:06  <peter1138> there is that
21:11:17  <peter1138> you might end up grabbing zbase though
21:11:22  <peter1138> which is a bit large
21:11:27  <NGC3982> zbase? Oh, ok.
21:14:34  *** fonsinchen [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
21:21:57  <NGC3982> Uhm
21:22:19  <NGC3982> I tried downloading all of the ECS files that was on the Bananas site, but they not seem to be the same as the ones in the Online Content?
21:22:46  <NGC3982> That said, i can't get them to match with the already existing ones my local Windows client is using.

21:27:32  <MNIM> victory!
21:28:06  <Superuser> le good feel
21:29:08  <MNIM> I think (hope) I solved all routing troubles in my new intersection, now I hope I can get that festering stinking sexual organ of a train route that was one of my local stop services to run on the correct track
21:32:40  <peter1138> mmm, festering stinking sexual organs
21:35:10  <Terkhen> that sounds far worse than the actual swear words
21:37:19  <MNIM> As was my intention, thank you :P
21:38:37  <MNIM> Seriously, it was a train route running across half of a 1024^2 map stopping at every station it encountered and not a single train was doing anything useful due to one tiny error (a signal pointed the wrong way)
21:39:06  <MNIM> well, and the inherent routing complication a parallel loop comprises, but that was easily solved by waypoints

21:55:49  <MNIM> hmmmmh.
21:55:52  <MNIM> 48 orders.
21:55:59  <MNIM> less than I expected, actually
22:00:45  <NGC3982> Where can i read on how i toggle parameters on NewGRF's that are loaded via a dedicated server (in Linux)?
22:01:19  <NGC3982> For some reason, the UKRS2+ sets a default "No locomotives" parameter when using the GRF in my initial config.
22:01:47  *** Fira [] has joined #openttd
22:02:05  <frosch123> you write numbers after the "=" in openttd.cfg
22:02:25  <NGC3982> oh
22:07:47  <NGC3982> frosch123: Where can i find more documentation about it? I notice that "Parameter: 3" shows, but it does not change any of the existing ones.
22:08:15  <frosch123> do you know that openttd.cfg will only affect you games?
22:08:23  <frosch123> s/you/new/
22:08:24  <Supercheese> NGC3982: Load OTTD in a normal GUI-environment, set your parameters, and look at what they are there to compred
22:08:31  <Supercheese> to compare*
22:09:18  <Supercheese> For example my UKRS2 has Parameters: 0 0 2 1 0 4 3
22:09:28  <Supercheese> UKRS2+ has no parameters
22:10:24  <NGC3982> Yes, sorry, i was refering to UKRS. I think i kind of fixed it.
22:10:31  <NGC3982> Ill just test it and see what happends.
22:10:33  <NGC3982> frosch123: Yes.
22:11:02  <Supercheese> GUI parameters are nice, since they have real descriptions and stuff rather than just being numbers :)
22:12:16  <NGC3982> Yes.
22:13:19  <NGC3982> Hm, it did not work.
22:13:34  <NGC3982> Supercheese: is "0" the first choise of the given parameter?
22:13:40  <Supercheese> Methinks
22:13:56  <NGC3982>
22:14:04  <Supercheese> First parameter, Locomotive Selection, is for me set to "Extended"
22:14:04  <NGC3982> number "3" is "normal" for the first parameter.
22:14:31  <Supercheese> Oh weird
22:14:43  <Supercheese> Locomotive Selection is NOT the first in the parameter numbers
22:14:49  <Supercheese> It's second-to-last
22:15:10  <Supercheese> So Parameters: X X X X Y X
22:15:14  <Supercheese> The Y is loco selection
22:15:20  <NGC3982> Uhm, how do i know that?
22:15:27  <Supercheese> Y = 4 is "Extended"
22:15:29  <NGC3982> I only went for in what order the list was in.
22:15:36  <Supercheese> Y = 0 is "no locos"
22:15:48  <Supercheese> (this info is all obtained from the NewGRF GUI)
22:16:05  <NGC3982> Yes, that part is clear to me. What is not clear to me is why it's second to last in order? :)
22:16:11  <Supercheese> Yeah, I dunno either
22:16:15  <NGC3982> Alright
22:16:16  * NGC3982 changes.
22:17:03  <NGC3982> Yes, that worked.
22:17:05  <NGC3982> Thanks.
