12:39:39  <Snail> just reported my issue :p
12:39:40  <Snail>
12:39:55  <Snail> I set it a higher priority coz I can’t code without this...
12:40:35  <planetmaker> the test might be easier if you supplied the required images, too
12:40:51  <planetmaker> so that one can actually build the nfo
12:41:43  <Snail> I did
12:41:50  <Snail> I supplied a RAR file with nfo and png
12:41:56  <Snail> whoops
12:41:58  <Snail> wrong file
12:42:17  <planetmaker> just attach each file separately. easier also than downloading zip archives :D
12:42:34  <Snail> ok :p
12:43:05  <Snail> done

13:53:54  <planetmaker> we use several mirrors, so it might be the one near you which failed to sync properly
14:08:06  <Man> could you give me another then please?
14:08:48  <planetmaker> what is the URL you try to retrieve the file from?
14:09:17  <Man>
14:09:21  <Man> but i got it already

17:34:03  <fairc> hey, what can I do if a town doesn't allow me to demolish a building/road?
17:35:51  <planetmaker> plant trees and/or wait
17:35:55  <mg_> plant trees/bribe
17:36:07  <planetmaker> better build a good transport service next time before you try to do that
17:36:11  <Phreeze> the trees make them happy like the boss of greenpeace
17:36:33  <fairc> :-)
17:36:34  <Phreeze> @pm: but towns are sometimes in the mountains, and you have to level 6 squares first...
17:36:48  <planetmaker> eh?
17:37:11  <fairc> I can't find bribe in the menu of the local auth, or where is it?
17:37:23  <planetmaker> maybe disabled
17:37:30  <mg_> maybe you dont have enough money
17:38:42  <mg_> btw. has anyone ever been caught for bribing local authorities? ;)
17:39:50  <Phreeze> yep
17:40:09  <Phreeze> you can even edit that in the options, if youre caught more often or less often
17:40:13  <Phreeze> +/-
17:40:31  <mg_> oh

17:56:42  <fonsinchen> Maybe I should alter the effect of waiting cargo in stations in order to give an incentive to connect link graphs. The more supply you have in the same link graph the more cargo you'd be able to store at a station without hurting your rating.
17:57:26  <fonsinchen> Easy to do and clearly an incentive. But it again worsen the overcrowding problem.
17:57:50  <fonsinchen> ^... could worsen ...

18:08:58  <fonsinchen> hi
18:09:24  <fonsinchen> andythenorth: Any conclusions about the waybill mode?
18:09:34  <andythenorth> works so far
18:09:41  <andythenorth> I haven’t tried anything complicated
18:09:47  <andythenorth> I’m playing a relatively small map
18:10:01  <andythenorth> for this kind of game It Just Works
18:10:12  <andythenorth> I have another 70 years or so to try and win the GS goal
18:10:20  <andythenorth> will see if I find anything else
18:10:35  <fonsinchen> Does it make a difference compared with asymmetric?
18:10:43  *** frosch123 [] has joined #openttd
18:11:49  <andythenorth> Hard to answer
18:11:57  *** Brumi [] has quit []
18:12:02  <andythenorth> I didn’t stick at asymmetric enough to give a fair answer

18:12:13  *** theholyduck [~theholydu@] has joined #openttd
18:12:28  <andythenorth> I found with asymmetric that I was trying to reverse-engineer cdist to get things where I wanted them
18:13:11  <andythenorth> I also got annoyed by cargo building up at some stations for reasons I didn’t understand
18:13:18  <andythenorth> that’s not happening with waybill
18:14:05  <fonsinchen> OK, thanks for testing.
18:23:25  *** luaduck_zzz is now known as luaduck
18:32:08  <andythenorth> fonsinchen: what’s your current thoughts about tile demands?
18:47:40  <andythenorth> V453000: I haz FIRS ideaz
18:48:26  <V453000> (:
18:50:24  <andythenorth> this I don’t like
18:51:00  <andythenorth> so farms all have to be connected to central transfer stations (slave labour)
18:51:09  <andythenorth> and then, once supplies are being delivered
18:51:18  <andythenorth> all hell breaks loose in an otherwise satisfying network
18:51:23  <andythenorth> and not in an interesting way
18:51:51  <andythenorth> unless they’re all connected and supplied, the cargo volumes are way too small
18:52:01  <andythenorth> and then once they are supplied, the cargo volumes are bonkers
18:52:46  <Alberth> it simulates realistic good year / bad year :p
18:53:02  <frosch123> i still don't get why andy doesn't like the farm transfers
18:53:11  <frosch123> transfering is the most fun part of the game
18:53:20  <frosch123> and firs farms are about the only legit usecase for road vehicles
18:53:28  <Alberth> true
18:53:43  <frosch123> is it just a trick to not make bandit?
18:54:13  <andythenorth> if I really hated the farms I’d have removed the clustering by now
18:54:17  <andythenorth> I think there’s a better solution
18:56:13  *** Pikka [] has joined #openttd
18:56:16  <Phreeze> lol
18:56:22  <Pikka> lol
18:56:24  <Phreeze> first thing i read from andy, is a rant vs his great grfs :)
18:56:35  <Pikka> where?
18:56:42  <Phreeze> 20:54:16] <andythenorth> if I really hated the farms I’d have removed the clustering by now
18:56:42  <Phreeze> [20:54:20] <andythenorth> I think there’s a better solution

18:57:23  <Phreeze> what are those catenaries andy ?
18:57:38  <frosch123> andythenorth: anyway, the key to interesting gameplay is diverse gameplay
18:57:53  <frosch123> so, feel free to add another chain with different mechaincs :p
18:57:59  <frosch123> "even fuller firs"
18:58:23  <Phreeze> interesting varies a lot: some find it interesting in playing realistic as hell, other love details and create giant infrastructure, others want to make perfect tracklayout etc
18:58:38  * Phreeze slaps andythenorth around a bit with a large trout
18:58:47  <frosch123> Phreeze: i wouldn't call "realistic" playing
18:58:53  <fonsinchen> andythenorth: I think I'm going to remove tile demands.
18:58:59  <fonsinchen> No one likes them
18:59:08  <andythenorth> \o.
18:59:12  <andythenorth> oops
18:59:14  <andythenorth> \o/
18:59:21  <frosch123> the most extreme realistic players are not playing at all, but just to bullheaded to use photoshop
18:59:40  <Phreeze> ^^
19:01:14  <andythenorth> fonsinchen: routing is to industry instances (or tiles), not to stations?
19:01:24  <andythenorth> I have two covered industries, one appears to be unsupplied
19:01:31  <fonsinchen> it's to stations with demand
19:01:42  <fonsinchen> probably tile demand again
19:02:02  <fonsinchen> ah, you mean supplied by the same station?
19:02:25  <andythenorth> so the final distribution from station to accepting industry is same as vanilla ottd?
19:02:36  <andythenorth> whichever N tile is nearest?
19:02:40  <fonsinchen> That's just as without cargodist. It only delivers to one industry.
19:03:02  <andythenorth> ah ok
19:03:35  <andythenorth> feel like solving that? o_O (separately)

19:04:00  <Pikka> so that you can stationwalk across all your farms and not have to build feeder networks? ;)
19:04:32  <andythenorth> yes
19:04:37  <andythenorth> precisement
19:04:45  <fonsinchen> I definitely don't feel like solving that. It's a mess.
19:04:45  <Pikka> little distribution networks are "interesting gameplay" though
19:04:59  <andythenorth> only for the first 5 or so :P
19:05:02  <andythenorth> then they are ‘chore'
19:05:16  <Pikka> they get your trucks used
19:05:48  <andythenorth> I could live without that
19:05:52  <frosch123> andythenorth: how does that no apply to all industries?
19:06:15  <andythenorth> chore?
19:06:25  <frosch123> yes
19:06:36  <frosch123> connecting the fifth industry is always the same as before
19:06:38  <andythenorth> most primaries only produce one cargo
19:06:44  <andythenorth> so the station building is less tedious
19:06:56  <andythenorth> most / non-farm /s
19:07:08  <frosch123> maybe create a "andy"-economy without farms  :p
19:07:18  <andythenorth> it’s quite easy to do a non-blocking dropoff / pickup arrangement
19:07:29  <andythenorth> it’s hard to do two non-blocking pickups and a dropoff
19:07:30  *** fairc [] has joined #openttd
19:07:43  <andythenorth> and omg, realism
19:07:47  <andythenorth> or rather aesthetics
19:07:56  <andythenorth> mines look ok with lots of station around them
19:08:06  <andythenorth> farms look stupid when there are more truck stop tiles than farm
19:08:45  <andythenorth> I think the answer is higher initial production, lower supply boost, and fewer farms per cluster
19:08:45  <Alberth> close the farm when too many stops nearby :p
19:08:56  <andythenorth> Alberth: evil :D
19:09:28  <Pikka> all arable land has been occupied by roads, you have been eaten by a grue
19:09:44  <Alberth> how many farms per cluster do you have now?
19:09:55  * andythenorth looks
19:10:46  <Alberth> it used to be quite nice in setup, but then again, I hardly play with supplies
19:11:10  <andythenorth> up to 10
19:11:19  <Alberth> :o that's a lot :)
19:11:40  <andythenorth> hmm
19:11:43  * andythenorth checks code
19:11:56  <Alberth> 5-6 is what I remember
19:12:28  <Alberth> but a very big cluster once in a while could be nice
19:13:32  <peter1139> Hmm, is 4096x4096 playable?
19:14:01  <andythenorth> only if you don’t get bored easily
19:16:00  <Phreeze> 4096 is like an "endless game"
19:16:12  <Phreeze> i'm just into small maps now, 512
19:16:33  <fonsinchen> 4096x4096 is probably a pain, but 4096x64 is pretty cool
19:16:41  <andythenorth> seems coal mins can cluster up to 20
19:16:48  <andythenorth> but spread over a larger distance
19:17:13  <andythenorth> oh I’m reading this all wrong :)
19:17:41  <andythenorth> Alberth: I have absolutely no idea how big a cluster can big be :)
19:18:55  <Alberth> it's a surprise :)
19:19:07  <andythenorth> seems to be
19:19:37  <Pikka> hmm
19:19:44  <andythenorth> I suspect there is no fixed limit per cluster, but rather a number of clusters per map
19:20:00  <Pikka> such cluster

19:27:44  <Eddi|zuHause> news flash: 512 is not "small" :p
19:28:20  <Alberth> number of clusters per map, interesting :)
19:28:53  <Alberth> I usually play with few industries, which would explain why my farm clusters are quite small
19:29:17  <andythenorth> my last game had 8-16 per cluster
19:29:38  <andythenorth> 256x256 is small
19:29:48  <Alberth> I hope you scale the number of clusters on map size
19:29:52  <Eddi|zuHause> small maps are a problem with FIRS, there are so many industry types that you only get one per type
19:29:57  <andythenorth> Alberth: yes :)
19:29:58  <Eddi|zuHause> which breaks the clustering
19:30:11  <Alberth> Eddi|zuHause: 64x64 is fun :)
19:30:15  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: insoluble :D
19:30:26  <Alberth> you get one industry of every type :)
19:31:11  <Alberth> and almost no room left to transport stuff
19:31:51  <Eddi|zuHause> my last 64x64 game was with MiniIN

19:32:37  <Eddi|zuHause> but that one 128x256 game i played with YACD was great fun
19:32:57  <peter1139> YACD :D
19:33:14  <Eddi|zuHause> otherwise i played 512x512 or bigger
19:33:41  <Eddi|zuHause> usually i prefer "sparse" maps
19:33:56  <Eddi|zuHause> i.e. low towns/industries
19:34:06  <Eddi|zuHause> lots of space inbetween
19:34:40  <Eddi|zuHause> it's a shame the variety distribution is so bad with aspect ratio scaling

20:33:04  <andythenorth> not much so far :P
20:34:27  <fonsinchen> andythenorth: You have to run each cargo over the link at least once to bootstrap it.
20:34:40  <fonsinchen> Otherwise it won't know what it can refit to.
20:34:54  <andythenorth> should be ok in this case
20:35:03  <andythenorth> existing route
20:35:48  <fonsinchen> It only works if it's "existing same link for all available cargos".
20:36:36  <fonsinchen> (or for initially unrouted cargo "to any station")
20:37:36  * andythenorth wonders how the refitted cargo is chosen
20:37:47  <andythenorth> 180t coal waiting, 7809t iron ore
20:37:50  <andythenorth> refit chosen is coal :P
20:38:09  <fonsinchen> Iron probably doesn't have the right routing information.
20:38:33  <fonsinchen> Does it refit all wagons to the same cargo?
20:38:42  <andythenorth> it’s ships, but yeah I think you’re right
20:38:54  <andythenorth> the iron ore has lost its route
20:38:58  <andythenorth> it’s ‘any station'
20:39:20  <fonsinchen> Then it should actually load it. If it doesn't please show me the savegame

20:50:34  * andythenorth bets on lowest ID

22:45:31  <Eddi|zuHause> wiki pages do stuff you put on them :)
22:46:05  <Eddi|zuHause> if you found something missing from the wiki page, and you did that, then you're the expert :)
22:46:28  <DanMacK> hey all
22:48:26  *** Devroush [] has quit []
22:51:32  <luaduck> hoy folks, is there any way to do something akin to file includes with the OTTD config file?
22:51:41  <luaduck> got a banlist I want to share between servers
22:51:52  <Eddi|zuHause> not that i know of
22:52:16  <Eddi|zuHause> but you could do a "on server start" script
22:52:48  <Eddi|zuHause> in the script subdir

23:41:04  <NucWin> how do i get my dedicated server to use newgrf ive downloaded using content command
23:49:27  <Eddi|zuHause> put them in openttd.cfg as "path/file.grf = parameters"
23:49:43  <Eddi|zuHause> or use a savegame made by the client
23:49:45  <NucWin> umm i tried that but it seemed to delete them
23:50:06  <Eddi|zuHause> do not edit openttd.cfg while the server is running, it is overwritten on exit
23:50:31  <Eddi|zuHause> (or use the "reload config" command)
23:50:57  <Eddi|zuHause> note that newgrf changes only apply to new games, not savegames
23:52:21  <NucWin> i thought i had stopped the server and copied [newgrf] section from local client but didnt seem to wokr
23:52:24  <NucWin> work
23:53:26  <Eddi|zuHause> you probably missed something

23:57:36  <NucWin> total_town_replacement_set-3.14\ttrs3w.grf = 1 0 2 1
23:57:49  <NucWin> under [newgrf]
23:58:04  <NucWin> but when i quit the server its deleted again
23:58:14  <NucWin> and i have checked 3times that i stopped the server first
