05:59:54  * Supercheese debates adding wild animals as newobjects
06:00:00  <Supercheese> would kind of be cute
06:00:16  <Supercheese> well, *more* of them, that is
06:01:07  <V453000> =D
06:01:09  <Supercheese> since the "deer crossing the tracks as disaster" post
06:01:18  <Supercheese> I figured, hmm, maybe some little deer objects
06:02:00  <Supercheese> or moose, those would do more damage
06:02:21  <Supercheese> obstinate blighters, you can walk right up to a moose and yell at it, and it will not budge

06:46:14  <andythenorth> quadruple production is daft
06:53:11  <Supercheese> only for high base prod industries
06:53:21  <Supercheese> for some farms, quadruple still isn't much since their base prod is very low
06:53:24  *** innocenat|cloud [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]

07:13:28  *** Celestar [] has joined #openttd
07:13:33  <planetmaker> I wonder... does the game simply build industries over such objects?
07:14:53  <planetmaker> such object as in objects which simply can be over-built like the company land - but in neutral form like the farm fields
07:15:24  <V453000> I would say no but I havent tried much
07:16:39  <planetmaker> hehe, I have the same feeling :)

07:34:38  <andythenorth> Supercheese: farm production is way bumped up on snakebite FIRS
07:34:45  <andythenorth> people should start trying that branch
07:34:50  <andythenorth> it will have new bugs I think
07:35:28  <andythenorth>
07:46:50  <planetmaker> andythenorth, maybe start releasing a 'bleeding edge' edition or so to bananannanananas so that it gets some more test coverage?
07:47:38  <planetmaker> but maybe that's too much hassle, too. Dunno :)

17:08:27  * andythenorth tries 90 days for FIRS secondary production window
17:08:33  <andythenorth> cba with a parameter
17:08:41  <andythenorth> people who want different values can recompile :P
17:09:52  <Alberth> :)
17:10:59  *** HerzogDeXtEr [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
17:13:57  <andythenorth> perhaps newgrfs should be able to read a config file
17:14:53  <planetmaker> what would be the difference to a parameter then?
17:15:24  <planetmaker> (except that we then would get undo-knobs and xml-NewGRFs :P )
17:15:34  <andythenorth> parameters are baffling
17:16:03  <andythenorth> most users do not need to change the secondary_combinatory_production_window in FIRS
17:16:10  <andythenorth> they can have what I give them, happily
17:16:38  <andythenorth> already the story for setting up a game with multiple newgrfs and GS is pretty poor
17:16:45  <andythenorth> :)
17:16:50  <planetmaker> yup :)
17:17:46  <Alberth> sounds useful, being able to store complete newgrf setups
17:17:48  *** DDR [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
17:18:07  <planetmaker> but we do have that already
17:18:09  <Alberth> exchange them with a web site, :like: them
17:18:11  <planetmaker> it's called pre-sets
17:18:26  *** DDR [] has joined #openttd
17:18:27  <planetmaker> we don't have exchange of setups, though
17:20:37  <Alberth> being able to load / save a preset would be useful
17:20:49  <Alberth> (as a separate file)
17:21:39  <Alberth> for some reason, I always reinvent the setup for each game
17:21:44  <LordAro> setting presets have been proposed before, i think?
17:22:07  <Alberth> I'd be surprised if it was new :)

17:46:12  <Myhorta> Hi there, I'm trying to compile ottd from source, using VS2012 but I keep getting this error:
17:46:13  <Myhorta> 4>c:\users\miguel\workspace.5.1\srcrdparty\squirrel\squirrel\squtils.h(36): fatal error C1001: An internal error has occurred in the compiler.

17:46:13  <Myhorta> 4>   To work around this problem, try simplifying or changing the program near the locations listed above.
17:46:30  <Myhorta> have anyone ever run into something similar?
17:48:36  <Alberth> looks like a bug in the compiler
17:49:11  <LordAro> Myhorta: ?
17:49:58  *** urdh [] has quit [Quit: boom]
17:50:01  <LordAro> oh, that never got resolved
17:51:17  <Alberth> yeah well, unless you're $important for MS, it's unlikely you get stuff fixed in any form of hurry
17:53:28  <Myhorta> Microsoft <3  You gotta love their error messages. "Not our fault, your code is to complex!" :D Well anyway, I'll look if there is any update. I'll leave the feedback here once I fix it

17:56:41  <Alberth> hi W
17:59:12  <Wolf01> o/
17:59:23  <andythenorth> hmm
17:59:31  <andythenorth> game time
17:59:48  <andythenorth> it looks silly having 20 trucks delivering milk to a town
18:00:00  <Wolf01> lego time, I have all the series 5 mixels to build
18:00:03  <andythenorth> but in game time, they’re delivering roughly one per day
18:02:30  <Wolf01> I built the new creator blue jet today in the lunch break, it's a really good set
18:04:34  *** urdh [] has joined #openttd
18:09:12  <andythenorth> creator is usually fun to build
18:09:21  <andythenorth> not usually so much on the playability
18:09:36  * andythenorth will probably get the Arocs
18:10:37  <andythenorth> this looks fun also
18:12:25  <Wolf01> I already preordered the Arocs
18:13:23  <planetmaker> frosch123, +no @ ?
18:13:25  <Wolf01> I can confirm the jet is not really playable, only few moving parts, but interesting snot techniques and the wings are wonderful
18:14:45  <frosch123> planetmaker: fixed :)

19:26:27  <andythenorth> ‘too much money’ is not a problem
19:26:33  <andythenorth> except that it means I can fund industry trivially
19:26:57  <andythenorth> which means I just construct industry where I need it and build short routes :P
19:27:09  <andythenorth> which defeats the point of the game :P
19:27:18  <Alberth> hehe :)
19:27:42  <Alberth> I never build industries :)
19:28:02  <Alberth> but do it a few times, and you'll run out of money?
19:29:34  <andythenorth> I could fund 32 ports right now :P
19:30:05  <Alberth> sounds like the right number to me :p
19:30:26  <andythenorth> Railroad Tycoon had shareholders
19:30:29  <andythenorth> and a dividend
19:30:34  <andythenorth> and an approval rating for the CEO
19:30:42  <andythenorth> if they disapprove, they fire you
19:30:48  <andythenorth> unless you own 51% of stock :P
19:31:15  <Alberth> then you fire the share holders :)
19:31:44  <andythenorth> you just manipulate the stock price down, then borrow on margin to buy it all
19:31:49  <andythenorth> then repay your debt by hiking the dividend
19:31:53  <andythenorth> capitalism in action
19:32:36  <frosch123> hmm, how about "venture capital gs"?
19:32:45  <andythenorth> something like that :P

22:51:37  <mngrif> but, as an actual example, i run an English only website that routinely has China trying to crack the CMS and brute force SSH. now, due to the content of the site i'm reasonably sure  the site is banned by China's firewall, so I just banned all of China from my site.
22:52:35  <luaduck> I really wanna do this at the openTTD level by the way, not iptables

22:55:13  <Hiddenfunstuff> mine for example has like 48 or even 72 hour leasetime on it
22:55:21  <Hiddenfunstuff> because our IP hasnt changed for like last 4 years

22:55:45  <Hiddenfunstuff> are there other parametres which you could ban him by?
22:55:58  <mngrif> the cable company where i live keeps track of your modem's MAC and assigns the same IP based on that, so your lease will only change if your hardware does.
22:56:08  <Hiddenfunstuff> exactly

23:06:57  *** Sziha [] has joined #openttd
23:07:07  *** Hiddenfunstuff [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
23:10:20  <Sziha> hello everyone! I have a question regarding the openttd compilation on mac. I have compiled the game with the Spring 2013 Patch pack. To succeed in doing that I needed to use the command for configuration: ./configure --without-freetype LDFLAGS="-stdlib=libstdc++"  After running the game I thought I'd increase the font size. But now the openttd.cfg doesn't have any line for the font.That's how my openttd.cfg file looks like: https://past
23:10:39  <Sziha> does anyone have an idea if there is a way to fix it?
23:11:18  <Eddi|zuHause> your sentence was cu
23:11:56  <Eddi|zuHause> but without freetype, you won't have fonts
23:12:16  <Sziha> eh, i see
23:13:07  <Eddi|zuHause> well, only sprite fonts. but probably very few of those exist
23:13:31  <Sziha> well i don't care about the font itself, only about it's size
23:13:43  <Sziha> can i change somehow the default sprite font size?
23:13:44  <Eddi|zuHause> sprite fonts only come in one size
23:13:49  <Sziha> ah i see
23:13:52  <Sziha> too bad! :D
23:14:05  <Eddi|zuHause> there's a gui zoom feature, not sure if that also changes the font
23:14:18  <Eddi|zuHause> also, your patch pack might be too old for that
23:14:38  <Sziha> no, gui is fine. when i use double it makes everyting too big
23:14:42  <Sziha> patch is fine i think
23:14:47  <Sziha> on linux it works perfectly
23:15:02  <Sziha> but my linux runs on virtualbox and the game in it runs too slow
23:15:12  <mngrif> the biggui thing does not change the font
23:15:25  <Eddi|zuHause> no. i don't mean biggui
23:15:33  <mngrif> does osx not have freetype?
23:15:46  <Sziha> so i figured out a way to compile the game on mac. But unless i use --without-freetype i'm getting a linking error
23:16:02  <mngrif> pastebin that error please.
23:16:30  <Sziha> ok, give me a moment to compile it. i'll use regular ./configure command
23:16:40  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm fairly sure lots of people encountered that, and just said "fuck it"
23:17:11  <Sziha> yeah... i can't pass on it :D:D
23:17:44  <mngrif> However, the actual headers and such required to build a freetype2 project do not ship with OS X. To get these, you need to install Xcode; when you install Xcode with any version of the OS X platform SDK, it comes with freetype2:
23:17:57  <mngrif> so looks like osx does have freetype just need to have xcode installed
23:18:14  <Sziha> well i have xcode installed
23:18:16  <Sziha> 6.3.2
23:18:42  <Eddi|zuHause> mngrif: if it throws a linking error, the headers were already found and used well before that
23:19:12  <mngrif> indeed it probably just can't find the shared object
23:19:33  <mngrif> which according to the googs is probably at /usr/X11/lib/libfreetype.6.dylib
23:21:07  <Sziha> i have this file
23:21:13  <Sziha> and it's where you say it should be
23:21:25  <mngrif> but does ld know where to find it?
23:21:37  <Sziha> so do you know where do i put this path into the code, so it compiles it correctly?
23:21:59  <mngrif> it might be an option in the configure script, otherwise you'll have to edit the Makefile by hand
23:22:37  <Eddi|zuHause> might be something like "--with-freetype=path"
23:22:56  <Sziha> ok, that's my error:
23:24:59  <mngrif> so much for  it being an easy fix
23:25:41  <Sziha> well without freetype there is no error :D
23:26:04  <mngrif> LDFLAGS="-stdlib=libstdc++" ./configure
23:26:14  <mngrif> try running it just like that ^
23:26:22  <Sziha> ok
23:26:30  <mngrif> it acts as though it can't find libstdc++ actually
23:26:42  <mngrif> the error is  it not finding one of those symbols, not a freetype symbol
23:29:19  <Eddi|zuHause> someone mac-savy should probably fix configure to do that automatically
23:29:49  <mngrif> i have an imac from 2007 on my desk. it's ppc :D
23:30:17  <Eddi|zuHause> just anyone "savy" coming here won't use a mac
23:30:47  <Eddi|zuHause> it's like a clash of cultures
23:31:09  <Sziha> well, i will be the mac-savy soon, because it worked!!

23:31:28  <mngrif> AWWW YISSS
23:31:39  <Sziha> after configuring like you mngrif said: LDFLAGS first, then ./configure
23:31:52  <mngrif> yeah LDFLAGS is a shell environment variable. it must go before any commands
23:32:09  <Sziha> haha, should we change the wiki then?
23:32:18  <Sziha>
23:32:37  <Sziha> in the 'configuring for maverics' it's incorrect

23:33:41  <Eddi|zuHause> mngrif: now find out where the LDFLAGS get lost
23:33:55  <Eddi|zuHause> or Sziha
23:34:14  <Eddi|zuHause> also, make configure provide this automatically on osx
23:34:41  <mngrif> note: because i have an imac doesn't mean it runs osx...
23:34:49  <Sziha> well this is only for game with the patch already applied
