00:00:09  *** Ryu [~Ryu@] has joined #openttd
00:00:25  <Ryu> Hello any OpenTTD Admins on currently?
00:01:07  *** Ryu [~Ryu@] has left #openttd []
00:01:39  *** Ryu [~Ryu@] has joined #openttd
00:01:52  <Ryu> Any admins on? I require tech assistance...
00:02:25  <Wolf01> if you tell us your problem maybe we can help you
00:02:39  <Wolf01> also, i require more minerals
00:03:13  <__ln__> NGC3982: have you figured out how to find out what's eating all your money when something seems to be eating all your money and your city goes bankcrupt?
00:04:01  <Ryu> [Wolf] -  Im having an issue connecting to a friends public server, its giving me issues connecting but yet other people can connect ot his server.
00:04:25  <Ryu> Ive IP Tracerouted it and the lasts 3 destinations of the connection "Hops"
00:04:58  <Ryu> He's given me full access bypass as a work around to try and fix it but even then I still cant join or even see his server online.
00:05:09  <Wolf01> do you have the same version? does he use some downloadable content/particular resource pack?
00:05:11  <Ryu> Yet I ping his IP over CMD and I get a full packet response
00:05:41  <Ryu> A few yes.
00:05:52  <Ryu> our versions are the same.
00:06:39  <Ryu> I've been troubleshooting this for 2 days straight, unsure what the issue could be.
00:07:52  <Wolf01> did he advertised the master server?
00:08:10  <Ryu> Yep.
00:08:36  <Wolf01> which name does it have?
00:09:14  <Ryu> Dedicated
00:09:14  <Ryu> -=GSP=- |autoclean_unprotected|Realism|OpenGFX/VAST||
00:09:32  <Ryu> it comes up on the en/servers on the openttd website.
00:09:41  <Ryu> and there are people in it right now
00:09:56  <Wolf01> yes, i see it
00:10:36  <Ryu> Yeah, another thing
00:10:53  <Ryu> I tested our connect last night, and I made a server on my own little box I have, lil 50$ one.
00:11:00  <Ryu> and he could connect to me with no issues.
00:11:55  <Wolf01> does it throw any error or what?
00:12:38  <Ryu> I cant find his server period on my server listings
00:15:13  <Wolf01> mmm, how many servers do you see?
00:15:38  <Ryu> quite alot.
00:16:20  <Wolf01> did you try "-=" with the search box?
00:16:25  <Ryu> yes.
00:16:33  <Ryu> also tried GSP
00:17:11  <Ryu> I even attempted to download the mods he uses, which isnt many, and straight from the mod browser ingame
00:17:18  *** Snail [] has quit [Quit: Snail]
00:17:20  <Ryu> all mods are updated on his end, and I have them all
00:17:27  <Ryu> yet I still cant see his server
00:17:42  <Ryu> even If I DONT search his server, and just look by game year or player amount
00:17:46  <Ryu> His server doesnt come up period.
00:18:49  <Wolf01> if you try to add the server manually does it work?
00:19:39  <Ryu> Ive tried that aswell, doesnt work.
00:21:40  <Ryu> I want to have OpenTTD look into this issue... cause its been 2 days ive done this.
00:21:47  <Wolf01> did you change ports or fiddled with the nat configuration?
00:22:11  <Ryu> Nope.
00:23:12  <__ln__> sir, is your apostrophe key broken?
00:24:46  <Ryu> I could care less to be honest... I'm semi-pissed Im trying to get into this game and so far its just caused me issues.
00:26:12  <Wolf01> the only thing i could think about, is to try with a clean configuration, if it doesn't help there might be a problem in your network
00:26:17  <Wolf01> maybe the firewall
00:26:25  <Ryu> I have my firewalls off right now
00:26:38  <Ryu> and his he has a bypass for my ip to fully let me through.
00:27:11  <Wolf01> maybe is that bypass which doesn't work well
00:27:25  <Eddi|zuHause> Ryu: the "bypass" may be the critical point here
00:27:52  <Eddi|zuHause> Ryu: the router might not be configured to forward packages properly between two internal interfaces
00:28:15  <Ryu> I dont understand why I cant connect then?
00:28:25  <Ryu> because if it was an issue on my end, he wouldnt be able to connect to me.
00:28:45  <Ryu> I hosted a test server last night on my end and he could connect to me fine.
00:28:46  <Eddi|zuHause> Ryu: the router forwards packages inside-to-inside differently than inside-to-outside
00:29:13  <Eddi|zuHause> Ryu: the issue would be at HIS router then
00:29:22  <Ryu> @Eddi |  How could he fix this issue then?.. cause we've been trying for 2 days.
00:29:28  <Eddi|zuHause> (this is mostly speculation though)
00:29:42  <Eddi|zuHause> Ryu: something about routing between two internal interfaces
00:29:43  <Ryu> im the only one out of eight people that cant connect.
00:29:55  <Wolf01> try removing the bypass just for you
00:30:03  <__ln__> wtf is a bypass anyway?
00:30:15  <Ryu> Security Exception
00:30:35  <Ryu> insted of reading my packets the router attempts to move me right along to connect insted of reading the packets.
00:30:49  <Ryu> what I dont understand is I cant CONNECT OR SEE his server on openTTD.
00:31:04  <Ryu> but I can ping his server threw my CMD and get a full Packet (50/50) response.
00:31:29  <__ln__> so he has a _public_ server yet it needs a 'bypass' made specifically for your ip?
00:31:54  <Ryu> its 100% public, the "Bypass" was an attempt to see if it was a firewall issue.
00:32:33  <Eddi|zuHause> Ryu: other issues might involve ipv6 with improper tunneling
00:33:47  <__ln__> (or simply ipv6)  (i don't know whether openttd supports ipv6, though)
00:33:59  <Eddi|zuHause>  yes, it does
00:34:07  <__ln__> great
00:34:37  <NGC3982> __ln__: Yes, absolutely. Economy has a status screen.
00:34:47  <Ryu> Ive tried manually doing *Add Server* and typing his IP, still no result.
00:34:48  <NGC3982> __ln__: But yes, that is hard to grasp, by design.
00:35:05  <Wolf01> did you add the port too?
00:35:07  <_dp_> are you both in one lan?
00:35:43  <_dp_> if yes what ip are you trying, internal or external?
00:35:53  <Eddi|zuHause> Ryu: i'm afraid we have too little information to help you any further
00:36:00  <Ryu> ipv4 .
00:36:07  <Ryu> @Eddi Im trying to give all I can here.
00:37:11  <Eddi|zuHause> Ryu: be sure that all involved firewalls allow both UDP and TCP connections
00:39:04  <Ryu> they do
00:39:29  <__ln__> Ryu: are the other people on the same network as the server?
00:39:45  <__ln__> NGC3982: i'll have to look for a status screen next time then.
00:41:26  <_dp_> server is public, I can join just fine
00:43:25  <_dp_> some routers have troubles accessing their own external ip, that may be the problem
00:43:35  <_dp_> not enough information to tell for sure though
00:43:51  <Ryu> So annoyed right now, 7 other people connect fine
00:44:02  <Ryu> not counting randoms that join the server
00:45:03  <_dp_> well, answer lies in how is your network connection different from others.
00:45:12  <Wolf01> the problem might really be the bypass, try to have the same configuration which works for other people
00:50:44  <NGC3982> __ln__:
00:55:17  <__ln__> NGC3982: oh, i've seen that view, but even then i had trouble deducing what's causing a negative number in a particular field.
00:57:08  *** Biolunar [] has joined #openttd
00:58:46  *** drac_boy [] has joined #openttd
00:58:48  <drac_boy> hi
01:00:21  * drac_boy pokes wolf01?
01:00:35  * Wolf01 falls
01:00:44  <drac_boy> heh :P hows you?
01:01:13  <Wolf01> about to be sleepy
01:04:49  <drac_boy> figured
01:05:30  <drac_boy> still slow day here but mm finished supper a short time ago tho
01:06:43  *** Ryu [~Ryu@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:08:04  <drac_boy> btw wolf01 the real reason train fever had me interested was that theres finally something with real transports in it (ever since Jowood died a long time ago and that beside it was never mod-supportable too)
01:09:34  <Wolf01> too bad the economy doesn't even work
01:11:13  <NGC3982> __ln__: Well, that is actually one of the main challenges.
01:12:10  <drac_boy> wolf01 well I wouldn't mind that since I'll be having too much fun making sure traffic doesn't make any bangup effects :)
01:12:38  <Wolf01> no, it's the whole industry thing which doesn't work
01:13:00  <Wolf01> forget anything about ottd, there you need to build point-to-point routes even for passengers
01:13:09  <__ln__> NGC3982: i doubt it's intended to be a main challenge :/
01:13:27  <drac_boy> (oh and on the topic of Jowood .. tbh Traffic Giant was almost ok except for being a narrow list of repetitive vehicles plus the dumb passenger pickup system was messed up (eg you can't except two bus routes to share more than one stop without jamming the first bus that shows up)
01:14:05  <Wolf01> i made a nice train network just to find out that after 50 years it stopped working because everybody started to use their cars -.-
01:14:18  <drac_boy> thankfully I found that in the demo (read: not end up paying for a game that was no good)
01:15:32  <NGC3982> __ln__: Yes, it is. Making sure your economy doesn't rush off into death is like 40% of the game.
01:15:40  <NGC3982> The rest seems to be related to traffic. :-P
01:16:00  <drac_boy> what you two talking about ngc+ln?
01:16:04  <NGC3982> Cities Skylines
01:18:40  <__ln__> here's a doctoral dissertation about Cities Skylines for those interested:
01:20:30  <NGC3982> It's almost uncanny how much it replaces SimCity
01:20:53  *** HerzogDeXtEr1 [~farci@] has joined #openttd
01:20:54  <NGC3982> With everything horrible about that game being absolutely flawless in Cities Skylines.
01:26:00  <__ln__> must be because Skylines was made in finland
01:27:21  *** HerzogDeXtEr [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:27:44  <drac_boy> oh yeah wolf01 almost forgot but simutrans pretty much showed the proper way to route bus passengers .. too bad that even after quite a while they still haven't quite "fixed" the date aspect (almost behaves the same as the option:neverexpire+cht:allyear combo in ttdxp basically)
01:28:12  *** sim-al2 [] has joined #openttd
01:29:45  <Wolf01> i played simutrans so many years ago that i could even say i didn't even play it, but i remember something about the routes :P
01:32:28  <drac_boy> well yeah it was easy to have multiply connections and the passengers still would only use the effective one instead of "just the first one they see" which other games always do
01:33:34  <drac_boy> only one thing (which I suspect is in the same category as the date thing) was how some of the industries didn't seem to exactly always accept the cargo they say they would .. oh well at least passengers always worked
01:34:53  <drac_boy> that and if you see coal mines ... coal trains are fun :P
01:38:39  <drac_boy> wolf01 either way would you like a game that does have transportation but your job really is more about routing&signalling "programming" rather than actually moving cargos?
01:40:31  <Wolf01> i actually prefer more action than management :P
01:40:50  <drac_boy> wolf01 heh fair enough .. want know what it is tho? :)
01:41:26  <Wolf01> some weird ottdcoop server?
01:43:08  *** Hiddenfunstuff [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:44:09  <drac_boy> that actually .. and tbh to our own but I'm glad that he only simply added new features once in a while but never changing the major graphic or so .. nothing like a tinkering-fun (in my word) game that can run on almost anything except an old crappy beige 486 ;)
01:44:52  <drac_boy> even after poking around once in a while for quite some time (a few years I'll have to say for sure) I still haven't fully discovered the entire signalling system :P fun that way heh
01:45:37  <drac_boy> oh and wolf01 its not just about moving trains can actually instruct a locomotive to shunt wagons in a particular way too
01:46:59  <Wolf01> i think i tried it before finding transport tycoon
01:47:53  <Wolf01> i didn't understand anything about it, maybe because it wasn't english :P
01:48:13  <drac_boy> mm yeah .. well I think its the only game (I don't know how to look online in other languages anyway heh) where you can actually split/join trains instead of just simply run fixed trains ... admittly simsig does suggest joins+splits but you can't even actually see any trains at all so its a bit moot
01:48:54  <drac_boy> and railroadtycoon doesn't count because you can just randomly pick wagons .. so unrealistic!
01:49:00  * drac_boy hehs

09:32:25  <andythenorth> meh
09:32:35  <andythenorth> also o/
09:33:52  <Alberth> hi hi
09:36:34  <andythenorth> I was going to say 2-cargo ships would be good
09:36:40  <andythenorth> but probably they wouldn't
09:44:25  <Eddi|zuHause> there are lots of ways to get them wrong
09:44:26  <Alberth> coupling number of cargos to number of sprites doesn't make a lot of sense
09:45:07  <andythenorth> I want pax + mail ships
09:45:24  <andythenorth> but what are the chances that the amount of pax + mail is ‘correct’ for my route? o_O
09:45:26  <andythenorth> very low
09:46:12  <Eddi|zuHause> people rarely complain about planes
09:46:13  <Alberth> in my view, in the optimal solution, the newgrf should decide what cargoes and how many
09:46:24  <Alberth> very few people use planes
09:46:34  <Alberth> and those that do, serve cities
09:47:09  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah, planes are just always full
09:47:21  <Alberth> so theoretically, you'd have the option of 32 different cargoes in your vehicle
09:47:28  <Alberth> no idea about feasibility though
09:47:57  <Alberth> or rather how much breaks if you decouple sprites and cargo type :p
09:48:34  <andythenorth> ha
09:49:14  <andythenorth> it was once proposed something like cargo compartments
09:49:27  <andythenorth> where the vehicle defines n compartments, with x capacity
09:49:39  <andythenorth> and the player can refit each compartment
09:49:51  <andythenorth> it would be a mess for trains though
09:50:06  <Taede> trains already have compartments
09:50:09  <Taede> one per wagon
09:51:12  <andythenorth> yeah....
09:51:39  <andythenorth> wagon-based ships? o_O
09:55:25  <Taede> would work for barges being towed by a towboat...
09:56:06  <Eddi|zuHause> we have that already, it's called wetrails

10:58:22  <Wolf01> meh... "hey cortana, launch skype" "what do you want? 1. skype; 2. video skype"...
10:59:49  <peter1138> :)
11:03:26  <Wolf01> the stupid redundancy of microsoft bothers me
11:04:55  <Wolf01> every time i set up my system in a way everything it works well, here is another update for you which destroys the peaceful mood and starts another war between applications and drivers, and cortana too decides to enter the conflict
11:06:20  <Wolf01> also i can't understand how the new apps work, i mean the "messages" and the "skype video"... why not just upgrade skype?
11:06:55  <Wolf01> EOR; // (end of rant)
11:08:14  <Alberth> the infamous "one interface suits all"
11:16:20  <Flygon> We already HAD a "One interface that suits all"
11:16:28  <Flygon> It's called "Every flipping Windows between 95 and XP"
11:16:31  <Flygon> And it worked, god dammit
11:16:35  <Flygon> WHY DID WE CHANGE?!
11:17:22  <Eddi|zuHause> Flygon: because tablets and phones
11:17:37  <Flygon> Oh
11:17:39  <Flygon> Right
11:18:08  <Flygon> Those 'things'. If I should ever so have to consider them the dignity of denotating them a designation of which that implies they were ever productively additional to the usage of my standard everyday computing life.
11:18:24  <Wolf01> i'm not against the interface change, just the redundancy with new apps which doesn't even work
11:18:32  <Flygon> Tablet and Phone Interfaces stay on Phones
11:18:42  <Flygon> Desktop Interfaces stay on Desktops
11:18:45  <Flygon> Is it really that difficult?
11:19:23  <Eddi|zuHause> Flygon: i'm fairly sure the answer to that is "yes"
11:19:37  <Alberth> there is no money in desktops, everybody already has a copy of windows
11:19:44  <Flygon> Perkele :|
11:21:49  <Eddi|zuHause> Alberth: i don't think microsoft ever made money on (home) desktops. it's all in "just get everybody to use it, so big companies will pay us any amount of money we demand to have it on all their computers"
11:22:28  <Alberth> fair enough
11:23:17  <Eddi|zuHause> that's why OEM windows is so cheap. it's the computer equivalent of a drug dealer's "the first dose is free"
11:40:41  <argoneus> Wolf01 you there?
11:40:47  <Wolf01> y
11:40:54  <argoneus> any idea which world settings are good?
11:41:00  <argoneus> I want to have to actually leave my base
11:41:07  <argoneus> with the default settings there's no incentive to
11:41:35  <Wolf01> the incentive is "when you'll finish resources, you must find new ones"
11:42:18  <argoneus> yeah if you saw my starting base
11:42:26  <argoneus> it'd take like 20 hours to run out
11:42:44  <argoneus> we already had the lategame tech
11:42:48  <argoneus> and it was like halfway through
11:43:08  <Wolf01> yes, i just started to expand too, and i'm at ~35 hours
11:44:04  <Wolf01> now i'm exploring for big hives, as i need to build the definitive power armor
11:44:57  <Wolf01> and when i find a nice ore patch, i'll start to build a mine to be connected later with the main settlement
11:49:24  * andythenorth has a desktop OS on his laptop
11:49:36  <andythenorth> and stupid tablet / phone OS on tablet / phone
11:50:34  <andythenorth> Alberth: supplementary goals in BB? o_O
11:51:35  <Alberth> trying to merge SV/NCG into BB eh?  :)
11:52:48  <andythenorth> dunno :)
11:53:04  <andythenorth> NCG is mostly fun in MP, with high targets
11:53:18  <andythenorth> SV is good for forcing insane routes in one city
11:53:39  <Alberth> only the first two of look  feasible to me wrt the NoGo API
11:54:02  <andythenorth> figures
11:54:09  <Alberth> ot rather I cannot see how you do the other ones
11:54:09  <andythenorth> collect x% from an industry?
11:54:35  <Alberth> x% of what?
11:54:53  <andythenorth> produced cargo?
11:54:59  <andythenorth> too easy
11:55:20  <andythenorth> hmm
11:55:26  <Alberth> or you have to do weird tricks like renewing trains and such
11:55:43  <andythenorth> yeah
11:55:52  <andythenorth> ‘own 50 boats’ :P
11:56:05  <andythenorth> silly goal
11:56:05  *** frosch123 [] has joined #openttd
11:56:17  <Alberth> I don't think the current goals are ready for such additions, it would need more work
11:57:11  <Alberth> quite trivial too, assuming the usual ridiculous amount of money :p
11:58:13  * andythenorth will think on
11:58:21  <andythenorth> there’s nothing wrong with current cargo goal
11:58:27  <andythenorth> just variety might be nice
12:02:14  <andythenorth> growing cities seems really boring
12:02:19  <andythenorth> they grow anyway :P
12:03:10  <andythenorth> ‘deliver x amount to an industry and transport away y amount’ seems ok
12:10:19  * andythenorth wonders about replicating the ‘connect A and B’ part of subsidies directly
12:11:50  *** smoke_fumus [~smoke_fum@] has joined #openttd
12:12:05  <Alberth> current cargo monitor fails for that
12:12:34  <frosch123> andythenorth: did you consider more indirect goals?
12:12:37  <Alberth> it currently stores received and sent cargo for each endpoint
12:13:05  <Alberth> if you want "connects", end number of endpoint combinations explodes
12:13:16  <Alberth> s/end/the/
12:13:17  <frosch123> instead of "transport iron ore from mine A to mill B", make "increase steel prodution around town C by 1000 per year"
12:13:38  <frosch123> that leaves options to pick a steel mill, use multiple or fund new ones
12:14:18  <frosch123> the GS could then subdivide the map into areas and pick places where currently no suich cargo is produced
12:14:45  <frosch123> heading for distributed production of all secondary cargous throughout the map
12:15:24  <frosch123> also the "more" part, would solve the duplicate goals thingie :p
12:15:33  <andythenorth> that’s quite nice
12:15:44  <frosch123> if there is already 500 per year, you can just increase the goal to 1000 per year
12:18:13  <frosch123> depending on the stage of the game (early/late game), the script could also count the primary cargo sources in the map areas, and only give goals for areas with primary supplies nearby
12:18:43  <Alberth> sort of SV everywhere :)
12:19:11  <frosch123> yeah :p but also sort of subsidies and colonization
12:19:25  <frosch123> "produce stuff where nothing is produced yet"
12:20:50  <frosch123> could also work in multiplayer...
12:21:23  <frosch123> via storybook or something you could have a "market" for goals, which you can acquire
12:21:55  <frosch123> as in: you do not randomly get new goals, but you select your goals from a global list for all companies
12:22:04  <frosch123> and you better pick the good ones before they do
12:22:32  <frosch123> but i am not sure whether the story book has button yet
12:22:34  <frosch123> i think not :p
12:30:39  <andythenorth> ‘SV everywhere'
12:34:00  <frosch123> silicon plains?
12:34:40  <frosch123> just call it communism
12:46:40  <frosch123> i don't get ldap
12:47:28  <frosch123> truebrain told me to fix eints authenticaiton and use "uid" instead of "cn" for user names
12:47:47  <frosch123> but in my test ldap isntallation phpldapadmin does not even offer me to enter a "uid"
13:02:45  * andythenorth bbl
13:02:46  *** andythenorth [] has left #openttd []
13:02:49  <frosch123> i guess i have to fallback to patch eints locally to use whatever phpldapadmin creates
13:05:44  *** liq3 [] has joined #openttd
13:07:20  *** HerzogDeXtEr [~farci@] has joined #openttd
13:16:19  <Alberth> basically, write an eints ldap interface
13:18:56  <frosch123> i think the problem with ldap is that all the documentation is theoretical
13:19:00  <frosch123> ancient
13:19:07  <frosch123> and completely disjunct from reality
13:19:38  <frosch123> the web interface allows me to enter bullshit like licence plate numbers, but not groupmemberships
13:20:58  *** gelignite [] has joined #openttd
13:21:38  <Alberth> :)
13:28:42  <TrueBrain> frosch123: I had to install a few plugins to integrate LDAP with PAM; POSIX users and POSIX groups
13:28:53  <TrueBrain> possibly any of those introduced uid as primary shit :P
13:29:18  <TrueBrain> I remember it was very annoying to set it up .. as like you said: all documentation is theoretical :P
13:29:22  <frosch123> i think it's just phpldapadming that causes the mess
13:29:26  <TrueBrain> just one huge database :P
13:29:36  <frosch123> it lists "uid" as required for posixAccount
13:29:47  <frosch123> when i create an account i can actually enter one
13:30:07  <frosch123> but after i hit commit it did not create a posixAccount but some inetperson
13:30:10  <frosch123> which does not have uid
13:30:29  <TrueBrain> inetOrgPerson
13:30:29  <frosch123> so, it does not at all do what it says, and it lets me enter things which it then discards
13:30:36  <TrueBrain> but you have to add posixAccount to it too, as object
13:30:49  <TrueBrain> at least, here it has both
13:30:55  <frosch123> it says inetorgperson (structral) and posixaccount
13:31:05  <TrueBrain> and uid is not a field here either
13:31:08  <TrueBrain> the entry is an uid
13:31:30  <TrueBrain> as in, you cannot change the uid at all
13:31:38  <TrueBrain> (basically, the dn has the uid)
13:31:42  <frosch123> well, it does not even display it :p
13:31:48  <TrueBrain> in the top blue bar
13:31:55  <TrueBrain> or when you press: select internal attributes
13:31:58  <frosch123> no, the dn always lists "cn"
13:32:02  <frosch123> the "uid" is nowhere to be seen
13:32:03  <TrueBrain> that is weird :)
13:32:11  <TrueBrain> most likely some setting
13:32:21  <TrueBrain> as then you dn was created with a cn, not with an uid
13:32:32  <TrueBrain> but good chance I setup the LDAP for OpenTTD wrongly too
13:32:36  <TrueBrain> as documentation is .. poorly :D
13:32:41  <frosch123> well, it would all be fine if only the webinterface was bs
13:32:52  <frosch123> but the console tools did not convice me either
13:33:07  <frosch123> the console tools felt like git :p
13:33:14  <TrueBrain> never used it :D
13:33:24  <TrueBrain> I am seriously happy it "just works"
13:33:32  <frosch123> as in: you first need someone to tell you that commit cache, staging area and index are the same thing
13:33:49  <frosch123> because without the docs are just glibberish, as they randomly talk about one or the other
13:35:00  <TrueBrain> owh, OpenTTD also uses "shadowAccount" btw
13:35:19  <frosch123> does that one add memberOf ?
13:35:28  <frosch123> because that one i did not have either :p
13:35:40  <TrueBrain> no, memberOf was annoying to activate
13:36:00  <TrueBrain> in slapd.conf: memberof-group-oc openttdGrou
13:36:05  <TrueBrain> index memberOf eq
13:36:12  <TrueBrain> and there is a memberof overlay and moduleload
13:36:17  <TrueBrain> so its a seperate module ;)
13:36:23  <frosch123> see, apparently everyone uses ldap for user authentication
13:36:35  <frosch123> but apparantly there is not even a standard for defining group memberships
13:36:42  <TrueBrain> nope
13:36:45  <frosch123> i really have no idea how ldap can even remotely work :p
13:36:49  <TrueBrain> it took me a long time to find something I could work with
13:36:55  <TrueBrain> me neither :D
13:37:27  <TrueBrain> there are several "memberof" plugins, I now see/read
13:38:55  <TrueBrain> yeah, I totally forgot memberOf isnt vanilla ..
13:39:01  <TrueBrain> dynlist of memberof module or something you need
13:39:06  <TrueBrain> which fills those lists for you
13:41:38  <frosch123> at least vanilla knows about licence plates
13:41:49  <TrueBrain> important information, not?
13:41:53  <TrueBrain> will be the next mandatory signup question
13:42:17  <blathijs> I just created a custom schema to get the attributes I needed, puzzling with the existing object classes was a bitch :-)
13:44:18  <frosch123> yeah, so the lesson is: "authentication via ldap" is about as precise as "import of xml data"
13:45:09  <frosch123> "our old software can export data as xml, can you import that?" - "sure, we can import xml"
13:45:44  <TrueBrain> hehe. yes :D
13:46:07  <TrueBrain> just think of ldap as just another database engine
13:46:32  <TrueBrain> table definitions are not preset
13:58:11  *** andythenorth [] has joined #openttd

16:13:24  <Zuu> Sonuds like you talk factorio. I tried to make a train cary orders for specifc cargo in a wagon which decides if eg. smart inserters should be added.
16:14:17  <Zuu> Though, now I need a smart inserter to load only when there is a demand and there is a stone on the same network. And I haven't figured out how the combinators work yet.

16:15:26  <Zuu> As I do not have the mod that allow you to read contents in wagons, I need to unload my order signal items to look at them in a smart chest and then move the train a few tiles forward and load it back again. :-)

16:33:40  <argoneus> by the way, im trying to understand the production menu (P)
16:33:47  <argoneus> but I don't know how to read it
16:33:54  <argoneus> if a bar is full does it mean im not producing enough?
16:36:19  <V453000> I believe the bars there are just comparison to the highest produced product?
16:37:20  <argoneus> im not sure how to read from it if im producing enough
16:37:37  <argoneus> like if the production and consumption are the same, does it mean i need to produce more?
16:39:23  <V453000> I would not translate it that importantly
16:39:45  <V453000> if you have a factory which immediately consumes a product, it will always be 100%
16:40:05  <argoneus> i still swear splitters are bugged
16:40:10  <argoneus> they seem to randomly consume my iron

16:55:07  <argoneus> wow
16:55:55  <Zuu> It will make the train a bit heaviyer as you have to pull around the backwards engine. But allows terminious stations.

18:47:19  <__ln__> did you mean jumping of a train or jumping off a train
18:47:56  <frosch123> Zuu: the most weird thing is that you can also bord the wagons :p
18:48:59  <Zuu> Yeah, that is uesful when you fail to catch the engine but still want to go with the train to where it heads. If you get on a wagon to way back you cannot click on the engine to change where it goes and of course you cannot drive it. :-)
18:49:43  <frosch123> yes, that's how i found out that you can jump into a wagon :p

18:57:13  <argoneus> ok ill buy the game then
18:57:16  <argoneus> :3c
18:57:36  <frosch123> i tried that bob stuff, but most of it is just not how i play the game
18:57:44  <V453000> I cant imagine people who make a game "because they want to make a great game"
18:57:53  <argoneus> V453000: ever been to the android app store?
18:58:04  <argoneus> they want to make stuff to get some quick money
18:58:08  <V453000> it is very nice to see after you browse some other games which have clear aim to make $$$
18:58:17  <argoneus> i dont like giving money to cashgrabbers
18:58:25  <argoneus> but factorio is too complex to be a cashgrab
18:58:27  <V453000> hi EA :)
18:58:58  <argoneus> also rip my savings
18:59:19  <V453000> it is awesome, basically people who just do what they love, and  the money is just the thing which allows them to do that and nothing else
19:00:23  <argoneus> i regret not trying the game sooner
19:00:26  <argoneus> i always thought it looked shit
19:00:31  <V453000> heh
19:00:48  <argoneus> but they should hurry up and go steam
19:00:51  <argoneus> srsly
19:00:54  <V453000> well, it is only getting better ;) both functionally and visually
19:01:02  <argoneus> there shouldn't be a problem getting this greenlit
19:01:03  <V453000> steam is somewhere end of january
19:01:15  <V453000> why is steam so important? just to have it in your library?
19:01:22  <V453000> the game will be no different on steam
19:01:32  <argoneus> i know but i like having things in one place
19:01:37  <argoneus> instead of having to remember 50 logins
19:01:46  <V453000> use the same login data? :D
19:01:53  <argoneus> that's what I already do but I don't tell anyone
19:02:04  <argoneus> well..
19:02:25  <V453000> I do understand what is the gain for us to be on steam ... more sales, easier distribution, ...
19:02:32  <V453000> but for players, I dont get it as much
19:02:43  <V453000> apparently I am underestimating the laziness of "have shit in 1 library":D
19:02:49  <argoneus> well
19:02:51  <V453000> I myself love steam, dont get me wrong :)
19:02:52  <argoneus> i also have most friends on steam
19:02:54  <argoneus> and can see what they play
19:02:55  <argoneus> etc
19:02:57  <argoneus> also
19:03:04  <V453000> yeah that is another thing
19:03:04  <argoneus> I can make money back by selling the trading cards
19:03:13  <V453000> xd
19:04:04  <argoneus> do you reckon I can run a server with 512 mb ram?
19:04:08  <argoneus> headless linux
19:04:22  <V453000> I dont really know much about that, but I would assume you can
19:04:48  <frosch123> most memory will be in graphics
19:04:48  <argoneus> ok awsum thanks
19:04:52  <argoneus> by the way do you want to be steam m8s
19:04:54  <argoneus> ?
19:04:56  <frosch123> ottd servers also need no memory, only cpu
19:05:03  <argoneus> frosch123: the headless version shouldnt use graphics
19:05:04  <argoneus> hopefully
19:05:08  <V453000> I dont mind it :)
19:05:12  <argoneus> if it tries to load sprites ill be sad
19:05:17  <argoneus> since i dont have any graphics on my vps
19:05:38  <V453000> I am thinking the headless version does exactly that, no gfx
19:05:41  <argoneus> oh this reminds me, is there a way to wget the binaries?
19:05:59  <argoneus> or is it behind login
19:06:04  <V453000> behind login
19:06:10  <argoneus> V453000:
19:06:12  <argoneus> rip ill just scp it
19:07:02  <argoneus> oh there's already a stripped package for linux
19:07:02  <argoneus> awesome
19:09:57  <V453000> :)

19:27:22  <V453000> idk I dislike RSO, I just set everything on very low frequency and im fine
19:27:29  <argoneus> what's wrong with RSO
19:27:52  <V453000> it has the thing 'further away = more yield of resources'
19:28:04  <argoneus> that sounds nice
19:28:14  *** rahtgaz [] has quit [Quit: I'll be Bach]
19:28:14  <V453000> which means nothing else but "expand only in 1 direction because it is more efficient"
19:28:24  <V453000> yeah, at first it sounds nice
19:28:29  <V453000> once you think about it it is totally wtf
19:29:04  <V453000> if it was further away-worse yield, it would be more interesting. Motivating circular expansion and making the game harder as time goes
19:29:26  <V453000> also it seems to me like it makes everything spread out WAY the fuck over the top
19:30:00  <argoneus> wow
19:30:01  <V453000> but to each their own, many people use RSO apparently
19:30:13  <argoneus>
19:30:15  <argoneus> this was fun
19:30:25  <V453000> heh
19:32:36  <argoneus> hm
19:32:38  <argoneus> not sure if RSO works
19:32:44  <argoneus> nodes near the beginning have 300 yield per tile
19:32:45  <argoneus> is that about right?
19:33:43  <V453000> it could be

20:39:38  <Aphid> I've been trying some things out, and is it me or does YETI have some sort of growth cap when you use slow trains?
20:46:26  *** frosch123 [] has quit [Quit: be yourself, except: if you have the opportunity to be a unicorn, then be a unicorn]
20:46:42  <Aphid> I get a theoretical max. of 2250 people out of using the full chain based around one town and one of each industry with stations at 75% rating. Somehow the amount of cargo that's being 'leaked' is too much. Or am I supposed to use an imbalanced setup, like ~20:1 ratio of food to building materials?
20:48:00  <Eddi|zuHause> Aphid: i don't know how YETI works, but faster trains can give you higher ratings
20:48:53  *** Supercheese [] has joined #openttd
20:52:26  <Aphid> Yeah I get that. Though if you're playing in like 1850 there's no train fast enough to raise ratings
20:53:18  <Aphid> I'm trying to replace the manual settings for cargo requirements in my CB script with pre-set settings for each 'industry GRF' and climate. Because in the end you're computing those anyway based on what your map produces.
20:53:37  <Aphid> Makes it work 'outside the box' instead of people having to mess with cargo IDs and stuff
20:53:57  <andythenorth> there is no way YETI could react to train speed
20:54:04  <andythenorth> it’s not in the newgrf spec
20:54:23  <Aphid> There is, indirectly
20:54:31  <andythenorth> unless there’s some insane way by measuring vars at nearby stations, which I know V won’t have used
20:54:54  <Aphid> Like yeti is a sort of 'loop system' right? Cargo goes from 4X to 2A to 2AA to 2X to 4X
20:55:36  <andythenorth> dunno
20:55:45  <andythenorth> I only looked at the sprites ;)
20:55:56  <Aphid> For the loop to be 'self reinforcing' which means that one YETI dude feeds more than 2.5 people, that one YETI dude needs to produce 0.5 units of food.
20:58:18  <Aphid> But at each step, you lose between 8% and 25% of the cargo. You also need to provide machinery, as it doubles output at one leg of the cycle, yet at the cost of only ~16/54th of your workers (provided the machinery chain also supplies itself correctly and uses all six machinery chain industries, otherwise it's a loss).
21:01:34  <Aphid> (3/4)^4*2*2/3*19/20 ~ 0.4007 though, so 0.4 food per yeti dude. That feeds 2 people, which sadly only produce 0.8 yeti dude.
21:02:12  <andythenorth> I have ‘supplies trucks’ in Iron Horse and Road Hog, carrying farm supplies, engineering supplies.  Now I have ‘vehicles’ cargo, should they carry that also?
21:05:33  <Aphid> Shouldn't you use 'cargo class' to determine what a vehicle carries?
21:06:55  <andythenorth> no
21:07:04  <andythenorth> or yes, but also no
21:07:33  <Alberth> george does in ecs, afaik
21:08:48  <andythenorth> it was a leading question I think
21:08:59  <andythenorth> teddy-bear coding, for a decision I’d already mostly made :P
21:09:44  <Aphid> Though it's a bit weird, GS cargo class documentation has no mention of the OVERSIZED, POWDERIZED, NON_POURABLE, and NEO_BULK classes
21:10:01  <Aphid> So gamescripts can't check for those, apparently.
21:10:08  <andythenorth> ha ha
21:10:11  <andythenorth> classes :)
21:10:25  <andythenorth> is it time for a class discussion again? o_O
21:10:29  <Wolf01> argoneus:!3570&authkey=!AIgFKzutgJ15hX0&v=3&ithint=photo%2cPNG
21:10:49  <Aphid> But I'm wondering how do you do the cargos for vehicles then. Since there's like many diffrent industry sets...
21:10:57  <argoneus> nice
21:11:06  <Aphid> Can you choose between cargo class and hardcoded cargo ID or something?
21:11:42  <andythenorth> labels
21:11:59  <andythenorth> dunno if NoGo has label support, probably though
21:12:00  <Aphid> Ah, like PASS for passengers
21:12:20  <andythenorth> yup
21:12:34  <Aphid> I think that's probably the issue sometimes though. Like YETI defines a weird label (YETI) for one of its cargos
21:12:53  <Aphid> a bunch of trainsets won't support it since the wagons are defined using cargo labels, not classes
21:13:07  <Aphid> (there's no wagons in for example Japanset that can carry yeti dudes)
21:13:32  <Alberth> bunch of trainsets are very old
21:15:29  <Aphid> Thing is when you can use some sort of abstraction layer like those cargo classes you don't need to update your train set when there's a new industry set, as long as you can support all classes.
21:16:11  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, but the way this works changed a while back, and before that it was a lot more cumbersome, so a lot of sets did not use it this way
21:16:30  <Aphid> But when the abstraction is not specific enough it can be a problem.
21:16:39  <Eddi|zuHause> also,  some sets just got it completely wrong
21:17:49  <slaca> where can i find a changelog of trunk? I would love to see what has been changed since last year. But I see only some translation in the trunk changelog
21:18:56  <Aphid>;a=tree?

21:40:17  <andythenorth> Aphid: you know about online FIRS docs?
21:43:07  <Supercheese> not to be confused with FIRS docks ( ;)
21:45:00  <Aphid> Yeah but what Im' doing is a little more complicated
21:45:11  <Aphid> Say you have a really big map, taking limit N-> infinity
21:45:19  <Aphid> And you efficiently connect all the firs industries
21:45:26  <Aphid> Then what's the ratio between final products?
21:46:27  <Aphid> As far as I understand you have a bit of wiggle room because a lot of industries you can 'choose' where to send stuff
21:49:23  <Aphid> E.g. coal can become either 1:1 building mats, or 1:1/2:1/2 engi/farm supplies, or 1:1/2:1/2 goods/manufacturing supplies. The manufacturing supplies can become either goods, food, or alcohol. So coal can make goods, food, alcohol, building materials.
21:52:29  <Aphid> Hmm... though there's 5 ways to make food with MS, and only 1 way to make alcohol.
21:53:11  <Aphid> I'm just going to 'assume' equal flow to all 'users' except for ES calc.
21:53:57  <andythenorth>
21:54:08  <andythenorth> if you wanted to get really ‘accurate’ input for your calc
21:54:25  <andythenorth> you could patch FIRS, the docs compile could also put out the production ratios at each industry
21:54:37  <andythenorth> I think that’s overkill, but eh
21:54:46  <andythenorth> it’s all there in python, and is trivial to adjust
21:55:14  <andythenorth> meanwhile, ‘vehicles’ is a bit of an odd cargo :P
21:55:29  <andythenorth> my trucks have 45t capacity, and nominally, 1 vehicle = 1t
21:55:35  <andythenorth> so a single truck is loaded with 45 vehicles
21:55:39  <andythenorth> looks daft :)
21:56:04  <Supercheese> eh just Tetris a bunch of Minis together in a really large box truck
21:56:15  <slaca> where can be tree growing disabled? cant find it in advanced settings
21:56:16  <Supercheese> might not quite fir 45, but would be a few
21:56:17  <Aphid> Aren't vehicles an 'OVERSIZED' cargo though?
21:56:18  <Supercheese> fit*
21:56:27  <Supercheese> oh I am just joking around
21:56:34  <Aphid> So you could reduce capacity for all of those, and then it carries less vehicles
21:56:35  <Supercheese> box trucks probably won't take vehicles
21:57:11  <andythenorth> means the vehicle sets have to special case vehicles
21:57:16  <andythenorth> which makes vehicles daft
21:58:17  <andythenorth> hmm, I can’t afford a pyrite smelter yet :P
22:00:58  <Aphid> hmm.. this is really cool though, I made a spreadsheet that does this thing for me...
22:01:17  <Aphid> apparently 1t coal becomes 15 litres of alcohol, amongst other things
22:01:25  <andythenorth> :o
22:01:28  <andythenorth> ha
22:01:45  <andythenorth> coal -> steel -> mnsp -> alcohol?
22:01:55  <Aphid> probably via that branch
22:02:55  <Supercheese> I take it that isn't accounting for bonuses from multiple input deliveries
22:05:00  <andythenorth> it’s slightly nuts that this could all be resolved by a calculation :P
22:05:15  <andythenorth> just using output from the compile
22:07:03  <Aphid> Well, it's not 'entirely' solvable easily. Actually I still have to factor in engineering supplies,
22:07:22  <Aphid> which can't be produced from all starting cargoes. so I have to adjust stuff like 'coal' downwards and 'livestock' upwards for that
22:07:52  <slaca> does anyone know how to disable tree growth?
22:08:27  <Eddi|zuHause> Aphid: what exactly is it that you want to solve for?
22:08:35  <Eddi|zuHause> Aphid: how to get maximum amount of cargo?
22:08:43  <Zuu> slaca: Lookup where it happens in code and comment it out and recompile?
22:09:05  <Aphid> Eh no... I'm trying to get some good default params for GS that makes towns want 'stuff' to grow.
22:09:05  <Zuu> Or look through all settings.
22:09:13  <Aphid> I want a good balance of 'stuff'. E.g. matching the industry set
22:09:24  <Aphid> Spreadsheet can get me what that 'balance' has to be.
22:09:53  <Eddi|zuHause> so you want roughly equal amounts of TE_FOOD and TE_WATER cargos?
22:10:03  <Aphid> Depends on the industry set.
22:10:13  <Aphid> Say you generate a map and add up all the cargo amounts produced.
22:10:27  <Aphid> For example, the map I genned now for FIRS has 7747 oil and only 1949 coal
22:10:38  <Aphid> So I should require more of the products from OIL than from COAL.
22:11:13  <Aphid> For example the default temperate maps have a ratio of 183 goods to 27 valuables to 89 coal.
22:12:34  <Eddi|zuHause> Aphid: but that is the INPUT of your calculation. i want to know what your intended OUTPUT
22:13:08  <Eddi|zuHause> i.e. the condition where you think the system is "balanced"
