06:10:21  <V453000> planetmaker is now officially in the yeti army
06:10:22  <V453000> =D
06:10:24  <V453000> minions
06:10:50  <planetmaker> purr purr! :P
06:11:02  <planetmaker> or grawl?
06:11:16  <V453000> slug slug
06:11:51  <planetmaker> nah, I'm not that slimy! :P
06:11:57  <V453000> mghfhhrrhh
06:12:01  <V453000> is probably the best one
06:12:24  <V453000> fat, lazy, furry, slow with bad coordination but good physical strength
06:13:31  <V453000> probably not going to be furry, dont want one yeti to have 100mb in source size :)
06:14:02  <planetmaker> not furry :(
06:14:21  <planetmaker> you just need a furry texture there, I think, no?
06:14:28  <planetmaker> not actually bumpy-furry
06:14:51  <V453000> most likely some displacement yes but idk, will see what skin will they get
06:15:13  <V453000> for now they will probably look rather robotic as that will be their base bone structure
06:15:24  <V453000> the model can be enhanced to look more organic later
06:15:42  <planetmaker> I just got a bit wtf when reading forums. I asked for a savegame. I got a rar archive of the whole openttd folder and like "didn't yet create one, but all is ready and configured to create one"
06:16:12  <planetmaker> I'm unsure on how to reply...
06:16:50  <Supercheese> The stupid thread called "Maclev trains" always bugs me. It's supposed to me Maglev, dangit
06:16:57  <Supercheese> be*
06:17:15  <ST2> maybe he rar'd the game running... hoping was included too :)
06:17:38  <planetmaker> you're right, Supercheese. Fixed title
06:17:54  <Supercheese> whew, much improved :)
06:17:57  <V453000> I still think forum style of expressing self makes something like a square root of everybodys IQ
06:18:06  <V453000> "everybody" except some
06:20:01  <planetmaker> V453000, alberth is right, the higher crops make it look somewhat more interesting
06:20:14  <planetmaker> looking at them in comparison
06:21:15  <planetmaker> and I agree, a silo would also be more boring than the existing barrels. They're a nice expression of dis-order
06:21:29  <planetmaker> A rusty machinery or so somewhere would be awesome
06:27:49  <Supercheese> or fuel tanks
06:27:57  <Supercheese> I almost always see elevated fuel tanks on farms
06:28:10  * planetmaker has never seen one
06:28:39  <planetmaker> just normal ones, but not prominently around either. It's not the typical thing imho
06:28:44  <Supercheese> Something like
06:28:55  <planetmaker> definitely not
06:28:58  <Supercheese>
06:28:59  <Supercheese> hmm
06:29:04  <Supercheese> perhaps it's more of a US thing
06:29:26  <Supercheese>
06:29:30  * Diablo_D3 quit playing openttd again
06:29:32  <Supercheese> those suckers are all over here
06:29:58  <Supercheese> easy to model
06:30:01  <Supercheese> cylinder with legs
06:30:23  <planetmaker> let's not make it easy for V :P
06:30:37  <planetmaker> this is the advanced class, not the beginner one .P
06:31:40  <Diablo_D3> is it possible that openttd isnt fun?
06:32:16  <planetmaker> of course
06:33:15  <Diablo_D3> well its like
06:33:21  <Diablo_D3> people do all this neat shit for openttd
06:33:28  <Diablo_D3> and then no server uses it
06:34:22  <planetmaker> as server I only use stuff which is found on bananas
06:34:49  <Diablo_D3> well like, all the popular servers are ran by
06:35:24  <Diablo_D3> and they all use pretty vanilla stuff
06:35:41  <planetmaker> seems to be their and your problem. Not OpenTTD's
06:36:10  <planetmaker> play elsewhere where the game and the newgrfs suit you
06:36:32  <Diablo_D3> well, yes, I could play single player
06:36:35  <Diablo_D3> but its kinda boring
06:36:43  <planetmaker> play on other servers...
06:37:11  <Diablo_D3> there arent really any
06:37:15  <Diablo_D3> no one plays on them
06:40:34  <V453000> Alberth: planetmaker: I had the same feeling but couldnt decide
06:40:53  <V453000> rusty machinery would work for me :D
06:41:06  <Diablo_D3> theres other stuff like
06:41:12  <Diablo_D3> I'd love to play at native res
06:41:17  <Diablo_D3> 1920x1080
06:41:23  <Diablo_D3> but the UI elements are too small
06:41:54  <Diablo_D3> and on top of that, the GL blitter patch was never committed to upstream
06:43:04  <planetmaker> really terrible
06:52:38  <Diablo_D3> I dunno, I have a really bad love/hate relationship with openttd
06:52:48  <Diablo_D3> like, I'll not play it for a year
06:52:54  <Diablo_D3> then have a really bad craving for it
06:52:56  <Diablo_D3> then come back
06:53:02  <Diablo_D3> play it for two weeks
06:53:09  <Diablo_D3> and then remember why I dont play it anymore
06:55:31  <Diablo_D3> like, the scale of items are kind of... weird.
06:55:38  <Diablo_D3> like, towns feel too small
06:55:45  <Diablo_D3> and industries feel too small
06:59:37  <Diablo_D3> its mostly stuff that cant be fixed because its set in stone
07:24:37  <peter1139> Go play Arma if you want scale.
07:25:09  <Diablo_D3> peter1139: I dont mean like that.
07:25:21  <Diablo_D3> its just that either the vehicles seem too big or the buildings seem too small
07:26:14  <planetmaker> can you phrase what you want in positives "I want things to work / be like..." instead of "not like ..."
07:26:15  <planetmaker> ?
07:26:49  <Diablo_D3> planetmaker: no, because Im not requesting it to be fixed because I realize how much of a shitstorm it would cause
07:27:14  <Diablo_D3> I think this is why I was banned from here a long time ago
07:27:28  <Diablo_D3> I asked if it would be possible
07:27:36  <Diablo_D3> and some chanop got pissed off and banned me
07:28:04  <peter1139> Some of those things are not "broken" to be "fixed"
07:28:22  <Diablo_D3> peter1139: well, the gui element problem is broken and does need to be fixed
07:28:40  <Diablo_D3> someone made a grf that fixes it, so it can be done, but you have to apply it on the server
07:28:48  <Diablo_D3> its not something you can optionally use
07:29:06  <planetmaker> it actually is
07:29:23  <Diablo_D3> not last time I tried it =/

07:54:14  <planetmaker> Diablo_D3, Download opengfx big-gui and enable it in your newgrf selection. Then exit openttd. Open your openttd.cfg for editing
07:54:43  <planetmaker> copy the line containing like 52577801|20B5D8122F2B4AD74ADDA30E44BA8233|opengfx_biggui-2.0.0/ogfx-biggui.grf = 1
07:54:43  <planetmaker>  from the [newgrf] section to the [newgrf-static] section
08:01:02  <peter1139> Could do with a UI for that ;)
08:01:54  <Diablo_D3> planetmaker: k
08:02:01  <Diablo_D3> yeah it'd be nice to get a ui for that
08:02:04  <Diablo_D3> and have it built in
08:02:23  <Diablo_D3> it'd make openttd more accessable
08:03:46  <peter1139> For the very few people who use it.
08:04:15  <Eddi|zuHause> i think last time we had a discussion about it, we came to the conclusion that an action14 flag for static-ability would be useful
08:06:27  <peter1139> Just scan the GRF :p
08:06:43  <planetmaker> peter1139, that's definitely a catch22. Nobody knows about it, so no-one uses it
08:08:16  <Eddi|zuHause> peter1139: the scan would happen anyway, as the flag can't be trusted, but the scan only has to happen on activation, whereas the flag can be used as a filter for unactivated GRFs
08:08:42  <Eddi|zuHause> otherwise you'd have to do the scan for all grfs at startup
08:09:12  <Eddi|zuHause> or you'd have no filter for GRFs that are static-able, making the GUI more complicated than it needs to be

08:52:49  <planetmaker> V453000, one of the things which could lay or stand around could be like a pitchfork. Yeti like manual labour, do they?

09:29:44  <Diablo_D3> btw, you know what I would find interesting?
09:30:05  <Diablo_D3> the whole forrestry thing should actually be eating a forrest
09:30:34  <Diablo_D3> like not a 4 by 4 block of identical trees
09:30:45  <Diablo_D3> but an amorphous blob of trees that can grow and contract
09:30:53  <Diablo_D3> and leave behind cut down tree stumps
09:39:38  <Diablo_D3>
09:39:44  <Diablo_D3> thats what a city should look like

11:10:49  <planetmaker> V453000, it needs a yeti-sized pitchfork which is suitable to handle the giant weed which grows on that plantation

13:03:43  <UukGoblin> on PC, when I click a rail station construction, and hover my mouse over the game area, I see white squares and blue squares showing me where exactly the station will be before I click it. Same with placing rails and other things. However, on android, this is missing - when I hover my mouse, I see nothing, and the stuff appears in a hard-to-predict location only after I click the mouse. I can't find any settings that would affect it, can you help?
13:05:06  <peter1139> It's on the station build window.
13:05:07  <Eddi|zuHause> check the android topic in the development forum
13:05:18  <Eddi|zuHause> the android port is inofficial
13:05:38  <peter1139> "Coverage area highlight"
13:06:16  <peter1139> If no highlight appears at all, then yeah, what Eddi|zuHause said.
13:06:18  <Eddi|zuHause> peter1139: no, the android port likely does weird things with mouse positioning, so the tile highlighting will never happen
13:06:39  <UukGoblin> peter1139, yeah, it's On, but doesn't appear
13:07:48  <UukGoblin> Eddi|zuHause, thanks, looking around now
13:07:55  <planetmaker> then report it to the person maintaining the android port. e.g. in the android topic at
13:08:23  <UukGoblin> it sort of makes sense when you use the touchscreen normally, however I much prefer the laptop mode provided by libSDL - where you use the touchscreen as a laptop touchpad and move the cursor with it
13:08:50  <UukGoblin> kk thanks :-)

18:34:02  <Tramvai> Hey guys and gals
18:34:44  <Tramvai> Tonight I return with a new question... what causes a cities population growth to come to a standstill? A city won't grow over 12k for some reason.
18:35:41  <Eddi|zuHause> the speed of house closing increases when there are more houses, but the speed of house cronstruction is constant (or decreases, when the roads have dead ends)
18:35:54  <Eddi|zuHause> so there is an equilibrium
18:36:44  <Eddi|zuHause> but where this equilibrium is depends on many factors, like number of stations served, road layout chosen, house set used, ...
18:37:14  <Tramvai>
18:37:24  <Tramvai> So, my roads could be the cause?
18:37:35  <Tramvai> Not exactly long and straight... :)
18:38:27  <Eddi|zuHause> the original layout is one of the least effective
18:38:45  <Eddi|zuHause> the roads are too close to each other, if they are spaced out more, more houses have space
18:39:00  <Eddi|zuHause> also, construct a 5th station, and make sure each of them is serviced regularly
18:39:17  <Tramvai> A station... What should that be?
18:39:20  <Tramvai> A bus stop?
18:39:25  <Eddi|zuHause> any station
18:39:33  <Tramvai> Alright.
18:39:56  <Eddi|zuHause> the number of station signs count, and that a vehicle loads or unloads there every 20 days
18:41:43  <Tramvai> Alright, thanks.
18:41:50  <Tramvai> Would love to get it to atleast 20,000.
18:42:28  <Eddi|zuHause> there have been reports of towns up to 1M and cities up to 3M
18:44:43  <Tramvai> That sounds ridiculous
18:45:26  <Eddi|zuHause> i think 40k should be possible for a town like this
18:45:27  *** Wolf01 [] has joined #openttd
18:45:52  <Eddi|zuHause> especially if you tweak the roads a bit
18:46:04  <Wolf01> roadbits!
18:46:14  <Wolf01> rabbits!
18:46:26  <Eddi|zuHause> wabbits?
18:46:39  <Wolf01> wombats?!
18:47:12  <Eddi|zuHause> no idea what that even is
18:47:13  <Alberth> wombits
18:47:23  <Tramvai> Wat
18:47:42  <Alberth> waht
18:47:59  <Wolf01> I was hoping to get "batman" in 4 or 5 steps
18:47:59  <Tramvai> Roadbits? :S
18:49:44  <Alberth> Wolf01: hmm, without telling us the goal? that would be a challenge :)
18:49:53  <Wolf01> eheh :D
18:52:00  <Tramvai> Adding a few stations did improve the growth, cheers.
18:53:01  <Alberth> try sub-tropical, there towns do not grow if they are in the desert :)

21:16:39  <freeagy> hi all
21:17:18  <freeagy> how can i  install openttd
21:17:28  <freeagy> i m a big fan :)
21:17:41  <frosch123> run the installer
21:18:17  <freeagy> i need the original game?
21:18:21  <frosch123> no
21:18:24  <Eddi|zuHause> no
21:18:54  <planetmaker> openttd is the original game :)
21:19:19  <freeagy> cool
21:19:24  <Eddi|zuHause> for various values of "original"
21:19:36  <planetmaker> well, for mine :)
21:20:25  <Eddi|zuHause> i think your value of "original" is quite far on the outskirts of the bell curve :p
21:20:39  <freeagy> whats the difference  Download stable (1.4.1) Download nightly (r26654)?
21:20:51  <planetmaker> I forged those statistics myself. It's right the median ;)
21:20:54  <Supercheese> Well, no offense to any OGFX artists, but the original graphics are way better
21:21:03  <Eddi|zuHause> freeagy: nightly has experimental features, which may contain more bugs than usual
21:21:16  <frosch123> nightly means "1.5 alpha"
21:21:25  <frosch123> so, if you are new, start with 1.4.1
21:22:05  <Eddi|zuHause> or if you want to play multiplayer, also start with 1.4.1
21:22:18  <freeagy> thx
21:22:30  <Prof_Frink> Nightly will explode, burn your house down and eat your cat.
21:23:04  <Eddi|zuHause> there is no warranty that stable won't do that either
21:23:15  <frosch123> Supercheese: no offense to any artists, but the ogfx graphics are actually nicer once you get used to both
21:23:43  <Prof_Frink> Eddi|zuHause: Stable usually only does one of the three.
21:24:03  <Eddi|zuHause> Prof_Frink: but there is still no warranty
21:24:26  <planetmaker> full refund for your purchase, Eddi|zuHause !
21:24:51  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: you can't say that either, because there may be people out there who paid actual money
21:25:45  <planetmaker> I didn't see any of that. No refund for transaction fees
21:25:47  <Diablo-D3> [05:20:54] <Supercheese> Well, no offense to any OGFX artists, but the original graphics are way better
21:25:49  *** AndroUser2 [] has joined #openttd
21:26:00  <Diablo-D3> the original graphics have that retro hand pixel drawn look
21:26:21  <Diablo-D3> the new ones are that 90s cgi look
21:26:25  <Diablo-D3> I never cared for it tbh
21:26:27  <Eddi|zuHause> ogfx is probably fine, but i hate the rails and the maglevs
21:26:34  <Diablo-D3> what I really wish, btw
21:27:23  <Eddi|zuHause> the rails look like they've been rendered out-of-focus, and the maglevs are just plain terrible
21:27:32  <frosch123> Diablo-D3: don't confuse ogfx with zbase though
21:27:46  <Prof_Frink> I never liked the TTD monorails/maglevs. TTO monorails all the way!
21:28:00  <Eddi|zuHause> and then there's the general darker tone of everything
21:28:07  <Prof_Frink> Or even better, TTO monorail bridges. Bewdiful.
21:28:07  <frosch123> i have no idea what maglev looks like
21:28:23  <frosch123> i cannot remember building maglev the last time
21:28:27  <Eddi|zuHause> don't bother
21:28:28  <planetmaker> maglev looks... not like maglev but like a bob track
21:28:30  <frosch123> probably a decade ago
21:28:42  <glx> Prof_Frink: not will but can :)
21:28:48  <Diablo-D3> frosch123: er?
21:28:53  <planetmaker> but that goes for TTD and OpenGFX alike
21:28:54  <Diablo-D3> maybe Im thinking of zbase then
21:29:59  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, i don't really like the TTD maglev either, but the ogfx maglev is an order of magnitude worse
21:30:42  <planetmaker> maybe I will replace it somewhen by smits
21:30:51  <Eddi|zuHause> then there's this "transrapid track" with the terribly done fake elevation
21:30:51  <planetmaker> but that's a bit coarse, too
21:31:18  <Diablo-D3> well what I want is
21:31:22  <Diablo-D3> bigger buildings in openttd
21:31:24  <Diablo-D3> by default
21:31:28  <Diablo-D3> like huge skyscrapers
21:31:31  <Eddi|zuHause> i actually like smits, but for a base set it might not be the Right Thing (tm)
21:31:34  <frosch123> use ttrs
21:31:40  <frosch123> Diablo-D3: use ttrs
21:31:48  <frosch123> but personally i consider skyscrapers extremly ugly
21:32:04  <Eddi|zuHause> i want less skyscrapers
21:32:06  <Diablo-D3> I said by default
21:32:14  <Diablo-D3> and having even smaller houses would be nice too
21:32:15  <frosch123> default won't change
21:32:21  <Diablo-D3> frosch123: yeah thats the problem
21:32:24  <frosch123> the point of default is being default
21:32:30  <Diablo-D3> if default doesnt change, then servers will never take it up
21:32:49  <frosch123> that's the problem of the servers
21:32:57  <frosch123> or maybe of the user interface
21:33:11  <frosch123> but with bananas grfs there should be no problem
21:33:52  <Eddi|zuHause> maybe if it actually downloaded the bananas grfs on join without further interaction?
21:34:46  <Diablo-D3> yeah
21:34:48  <Diablo-D3> that'd be nice
21:34:55  <Diablo-D3> games have had that for the past 15 yeas
21:34:56  <Diablo-D3> *years
21:34:59  <Diablo-D3> openttd should have it
21:35:22  <planetmaker> Diablo-D3, you whine about 'servers', but from what you tell, you only ever play on one...
21:35:32  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm not an expert in game psychology
21:35:41  <Diablo-D3> planetmaker: I play on the ones
21:35:44  <Diablo-D3> they have like 10 or w/e
21:35:50  <Diablo-D3> and its usually the only populated ones
21:36:30  <planetmaker> I refute that statement
21:36:52  <planetmaker> it only says that you play on one server. But don't look elsewhere

21:37:38  <Diablo-D3> planetmaker: it?
21:40:00  <planetmaker> shows that your statement is already wrong
21:40:26  <Diablo-D3> planetmaker: I dont play on the goal-less ones
21:41:07  <planetmaker> that still makes your statement wrong
21:41:25  <planetmaker> but limits the amount of other available servers slightly
21:43:31  <planetmaker> but if you want something like "exactly like this except..."... go start your own or talk to the server owners and get involved there
21:43:33  <Eddi|zuHause> if there are 5% of servers using goals, and 5% of servers using newgrf, then "servers that use goals and newgrfs" is a diminishing fraction (assuming both variables are independent, which they probably are not)

23:01:04  <Eddi|zuHause> why "instead"?
23:01:34  <Eddi|zuHause> it doesn't prevent you from using busses
23:05:33  <Supercheese> perhaps there is a "as the primary intracity transport method" missing
23:05:44  <Diablo-D3> Ive always wanted to do metro trains
23:05:47  *** AndroUser2 [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
23:05:53  <Diablo-D3> but they always seemed more expensive and problematic than bussses

23:07:01  <Supercheese> Visuals that look like subways but are actually coded as road vehicles
23:07:56  <Supercheese> Pros and cons are listed in the post there
23:08:06  <Diablo-D3> yeah Im reading that now
23:11:21  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm usually using trams
23:11:34  <Supercheese> which are essentially above-ground subways :P
23:11:49  <Supercheese> as oxymoronic as that phrase is
23:12:00  <Eddi|zuHause> or on-rail-busses?
23:12:38  <Supercheese> Indeed, setting the parameter to make fake subways trams, they behave nearly identically except for speed, capacity, etc.
23:12:40  <Eddi|zuHause> or on-road-ish-trains?
23:13:06  <Supercheese> still waiting on roadtypes
23:13:08  <Eddi|zuHause> or maybe they are on-ground-planes?
23:13:12  <Supercheese> so I can abuse the crap out of them
23:13:46  <Eddi|zuHause> Supercheese: they would still miss a tram-subway-connector piece
23:14:01  <Supercheese> Yeah, only depots could do that
23:14:23  <Supercheese> and even then visual-only I suspect
23:14:36  <Supercheese> unless powered roadtypes could change with cargo subtype
23:15:21  <Supercheese> trains don't have that callback currently, it seems
23:16:06  <Eddi|zuHause> no, you can only change the power, not the powered-state
