10:31:14  <Samu> hi all
10:33:24  <Samu> I'm trying to come up with "settings every ai author would agree"
10:33:44  <Samu> any hint?
10:34:21  <Samu> the only rule is... no NewGRF
10:39:19  <Samu> should I create a topic asking for it?

10:51:58  *** andythenorth_ has quit IRC
11:03:42  *** sla_ro|master has quit IRC
11:09:44  <Samu> anyone know what is this setting?
11:09:46  <Samu>
11:10:59  <Samu> game_creation.heightmap_rotation
11:11:26  <Samu> ah, I think I know
11:11:34  <FLHerne> Samu: Images are usually displayed with horizontal/vertical edges, OTTD maps are diagonal
11:12:35  <Samu> does it also work with generated maps'
11:12:37  <Samu> ?
11:13:07  <FLHerne> So the heightmap has to be rotated 45° in either direction to align with the OTTD world
11:13:29  <FLHerne> No? That doesn't really make sense
11:15:19  <Samu> ok
11:21:25  *** Krycho has joined #openttd
11:21:38  <Krycho> Hello!??!
11:22:14  <FLHerne> Krycho: Hi
11:23:07  <FLHerne> So punctuation!‽¿≠
11:23:19  <Krycho> I would like to install an openttd server on a "Pi Zero" I have at home, but I can't seem to find a guide for it, you guys have any idea how I could do it?
11:23:27  <Krycho> ¿?¿?¿? :)
11:24:15  <Krycho> the pi zero is running Jessie and I am running it headless via SSH
11:25:09  <peter1138> probably "apt-get install openttd" would do the job
11:25:23  <FLHerne> The standard openttd build will run as a server, there aren't any headless packages
11:25:39  <peter1138> may not be the latest release though
11:26:05  <Alkel_U3> although jessie has quite old version in its repository
11:26:19  <Krycho> so id have to download it run it with it connected to a screen ?
11:26:32  <peter1138> no
11:27:02  <Alkel_U3> you just run "openttd -D"
11:28:37  <Samu> does vehicle.smoke_amount has any impact on vehicle performance?
11:28:46  <Samu> is it only for looks?
11:28:48  <Alkel_U3> if there isn't a build for your platform, you might need to compile from source
11:28:54  <FLHerne> Samu: Looks
11:29:22  <Samu> ok
11:29:51  <Krycho> should I be able to see the game on servers after running openttd -D ?
11:30:07  <peter1138> you'll need to configure it
11:30:38  <peter1138> there's a load of settings for ... everything
11:31:19  <Krycho> I see it there but it tells me server version is 1.4.4
11:31:33  <peter1138> yeah
11:31:37  <Alkel_U3> have fun*BSD
11:31:38  <peter1138> so it's too old :(
11:31:47  <Alkel_U3> (it's not too complicated)
11:32:44  <peter1138> well compiling on a pi is not very fun
11:32:44  <Krycho> the problem is the first command it gives me on the site says "E: You must put some 'source' URIs in your sources.list"
11:33:23  <Alkel_U3> I did it on Cubieboard2 with Jessie, it's just long :-)
11:33:33  <Krycho> would it be easier to run on a kimsufi server ?
11:33:36  <Krycho> on debian ?
11:33:56  <Alkel_U3> if you have kimsufi server, yes
11:34:20  <Krycho> yeah
11:34:33  <Krycho> just use it as seedbox and teamspeak server xD
11:34:52  <Krycho> any step by step guide for it? cos im dumb as shit
11:34:59  <Alkel_U3> I personaly have very good experience with forpsi VPS
11:35:04  <Krycho> dir
11:35:09  <Krycho> woops xD
11:35:12  <peter1138> ls
11:35:55  <Samu> extend_vehicle_life = 50 - does it mean a vehicle that has a max age of 20 years, would get 70 instead?
11:36:09  <Samu> or is it the model availability that is extended?
11:36:21  <Samu> never tried this setting
11:36:42  <Alkel_U3> the Zero also won't be able to run at full speed during lategame anyway, IMHO. Even the faster, dualcore CB2 was running just so-so a few years back.
11:36:58  <Samu> ok just tried it
11:37:10  <Samu> lel, vehicles max age 70
11:37:16  <Samu> i don't think i like this setting
11:38:26  <Alkel_U3> Krycho: download from here according to your architecture , install.
11:39:06  <FLHerne> Alkel_U3: It's a RasPi, there are no such files
11:39:45  <Alkel_U3> FLHerne: he decided to switch to kimsufi server if I understood correctly
11:40:07  <Krycho> im torn xD
11:40:11  <FLHerne> Alkel_U3: Oh, I see
11:40:38  <Alkel_U3> server on zero won't be too playable, anyway, I think
11:40:39  <Krycho> but wont it give me the same problems?
11:41:17  <Alkel_U3> no because the page I linked has ready packages for Jessie on Intel CPUs
11:42:04  <Alkel_U3> just dowload from there and install it (dpkg -i nameofyouropenttdpackage.deb)

11:44:57  <Krycho> pi is arm
11:45:05  <peter1138> run it on the kimsufi, it'll perform better anyway
11:46:37  <Samu> allow landscaping under buildings, tracks, etc... is this the autoslope?
11:46:50  <Samu> the description slightly changed if it is
11:46:55  <Samu> wiki is not updated
11:50:33  <Samu> build_on_slopes is no longer an advanced setting
11:50:42  <Samu> wiki not updated ugh :(

12:25:29  <Wolf01> *must
12:25:53  <peter1138> enums must have a constant value, so...
12:26:04  <Wolf01> And they have
12:26:15  <Wolf01> It's the operator fault

13:18:20  <Eddi|zuHause> you can only use operators which the compiler can evaluat on compile time, otherwise the result cannot be a constant
13:21:33  <Wolf01> Every enum has this problem if there's a value set with bitwise or
13:22:07  <Wolf01> like ROAD_X    = ROAD_SW | ROAD_NE,

14:12:36  <Eddi|zuHause> then i can't help you.

17:08:23  <Samu> GDDR6 is coming in 2018, i thought GDDR stuff would phase out
17:09:45  <Samu> Samsung plans to have 100 TB SSDs ready by 2020
17:09:51  <Samu> RIP HDD
17:12:10  <Samu> Seagate showcased a 60 TB SSD, 3.5' form factor, finally someone is making 3.5' SSDs
17:13:27  <Samu> 60 TB SSD! and here I am with my meager 1 TB HDD
17:13:34  <Wolf01> Do you think this argument belongs to this channel? We talk about Factorio or Europa Universalis here
17:14:06  <Wolf01> :D
17:14:13  <Samu> :(
17:16:45  <Alberth> it's all equally on-topic :p
17:17:08  <Alberth> also, you missed lego as topic :)
17:18:01  <Wolf01> Lego doesn't need to be on topic, it's always a fitting argument ;)
17:18:25  <Alberth> although I fail to see why you'd ever need a 100TB disk
17:19:16  <Wolf01> Risk of losing 100TB of stuff in one single fault?
17:19:36  <Wolf01> Better having 100 x 1TB SSD
17:27:56  <Eddi|zuHause> of course you'd put them in a raid 1/5/6/... to prevent data loss
17:31:06  <Alkel_U3> 100TB storage? How else could we move onto SupermegaultraHD™5D movies?
17:31:44  <Wolf01> I still watch DVDs
17:32:19  <Eddi|zuHause> that argument always reminds me how when CDs came out which were larger than any existing HDDs, and people said "you don't need a HDD anymore"
17:33:03  <Wolf01> Then with BR-D was the same, and something popped out even with holodisks
17:33:36  <Alkel_U3> as I only have access to an HD projector, I'd probably watch DVDs, too, but I needed that fourth SATA port for another HDD :-)
17:34:00  <Alkel_U3> too small disks and too low-end board

18:20:34  <SpComb> but the irclogs code isn't smart enough to correctly handle the DST transitions either
18:21:04  <SpComb> and I wasn't smart enough to just convert all the old logs to UTC first

18:28:18  <Samu> darn bankrupts
18:28:36  <Samu> could the bankrupt system be changed somehow?
18:29:14  <Samu> ais disappearing with huge profits is ... meh
18:29:32  <Samu> could there be an option to disable bankrupting?
18:29:35  *** sla_ro|master has quit IRC
18:29:58  <Samu> :( what can I do to avoid ai bankrutping with profits?
18:30:13  <SpComb> and I totally have a plan for replacing SpBot when the machine it's running on goes away, it just involves implementing a cluster of IRC bots written in Go, using etcd for dynamic configuration and writing messages into a kafka queue that gets loaded into an elasticsearch cluster, with some Django web frontend that includes progressive enhancement of some AngularJS components like a websocket streaming stuff from the same kafka queues!
18:30:26  *** andythenorth_ has quit IRC
18:30:38  <SpComb> I would just need a couple months of development time and a nice Docker cluster to run it all on, and it would probably just end up logging #openttd, so I think I'm not going to bother :P
18:30:48  *** andythenorth_ has joined #openttd
18:30:55  <Eddi|zuHause> i think my buzzword detector exploded
18:31:21  <Eddi|zuHause> can't we just add logging to DorpsGek instead?
18:31:29  <Samu> EpicTrans should name his companies as EPIC BANKRUPTING COMPANY
18:31:50  <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: psst, dorpsgek always wanted a friend
18:31:59  <SpComb> Eddi|zuHause: frosch123 said he had something as a replacement, dunno what exactly
18:32:23  <frosch123> <- the same thing that logs all the other channels
18:32:49  <Wolf01> frosch123, andythenorth_, I'm wondering what I need to do on NotRoadTypes: let's take the StreetTypes, there will be a "Normal" type and more types like "Country", "Trolleybus" and "Freeway" with different limits and stuff?

18:33:03  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause:

18:34:28  <Eddi|zuHause> Wolf01: the default game will just have "normal", anything else added by NewGRF
18:34:45  <Wolf01> Just trying to figure out what are the "StreetTypes" :P
18:34:55  *** Arveen has joined #openttd
18:35:07  <frosch123> Wolf01: mostly graphical variations
18:35:12  <Eddi|zuHause> cobble vs. asphalt, town vs. country, ...
18:35:13  <frosch123> like off-road stuff for heqs
18:35:19  <Wolf01> Because even the "normal" could be split into types
18:35:54  <Eddi|zuHause> Wolf01: you can't possibly prepare for all things NewGRF authors will come up with
18:36:03  <Wolf01> If it's visual only I could suggest a gui to set the bits for decorations
18:36:11  <Eddi|zuHause> (*vaguely points towards V453000*)
18:36:45  *** Myhorta has joined #openttd
18:36:48  <frosch123> Wolf01: with only 4 bits for the type, there are not many user options :p
18:36:49  <Eddi|zuHause> Wolf01: one option that i had in mind was that "country" roads would be ignored by the town growth algorithm
18:37:24  <frosch123> but yes, "allow level crossing", "town growth speed", ... that stuff
18:37:34  <Wolf01> For example I wouldn't put a "road" and "road w/ catenary", because in future we could even have freeways with catenary for el-trucks
18:38:21  <Wolf01> (I always felt even the rails vs rails w/ catenary a duplication)
18:39:24  <Wolf01> But it's too late to change how the game works
18:39:34  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, but it's not a "clean" duplication, e.g. "maglev with catenary" makes no sense
18:39:55  <Wolf01> So if we'll need catenary on a freeway, we'll need a freeway wi/ catenary type
18:40:02  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
18:42:04  *** sla_ro|master has joined #openttd
18:42:31  <Wolf01> Btw, nobody stops me to have maglev w/ catenary, or there's a hardcoded limitation?
18:44:40  <Eddi|zuHause> Wolf01: you could add a flag "maglev cannot have catenary", but then you'd artificially block a railtype slot
18:46:17  <Eddi|zuHause> (assuming you'd want to reduce the railtype slots from 16 to 8, and have the other 8 automatically mapped to a "... with catenary" slot)
18:47:17  <Eddi|zuHause> it would probably simplify a few things, especially the GUI could just have a "... with catenary" button, but it'd reduce the flexibility a bit
18:47:48  <supermop_> Wolf01: Eddi|zuHause: what if the maglev train is propelled by the superconducting track, but uses catenary for powering the lights on board?
18:48:19  <Wolf01> You could have wireless charge
18:48:39  <supermop_> what if in tt land the catenary hanger's union is so strong they will strick if you build any fast track without catenary?
18:48:46  <supermop_> strike
18:48:49  <Eddi|zuHause> supermop_: the friction on catenary would pose a speed restriction
18:49:09  <Eddi|zuHause> plus wear, and other stuff
18:49:14  <Eddi|zuHause> it's a terrible idea, really
18:51:06  <Wolf01> Yes, it reduces flexibility, but it's really more easy to understand, you have a button to set the catenary bit in every tile you want (even on bare land, maybe you have an electric tracked vehicle)... the downside is that it breaks the "convert rail" tool
18:52:29  <Wolf01> Which is another point I need to work on: understand what could be converted into the new type
18:53:09  <Wolf01> Specially when you have 2 types on the same tile
18:54:16  <Wolf01> For example, you have a straight road, suddenly a tram crossing (or even a rail crossing) and you are converting the road to "freeway type" which doesn't allow crossings
18:54:47  <Eddi|zuHause> what's there to consider? you can convert all roadtypes into other roadtypes, and all tramtypes into other tramtypes. if the combination is not allowed, or if an incompatible vehicle is on it, the conversion fails
18:57:06  *** keoz has quit IRC
18:57:51  <Wolf01> Yes
18:58:15  <Samu> does anyone know who works on EpicTrans?
18:58:23  <Samu> the author is still unknown
18:58:30  <Samu> at least for me
19:00:50  <Eddi|zuHause> the rail conversion originally failed when a vehicle is on it at all, but that was found too restrictive and annoying when converting to electric rail, because it results in forgotten bits and pathfinder errors
19:01:06  <Wolf01> I remember
19:01:26  <Samu> function GetAuthor()      { return "Tovermodus"; }
19:01:30  <Samu> who's Tovermodus?
19:06:45  *** Progman has joined #openttd
19:10:40  <supermop_> catenary on empty land -> power lines -> all catenary must connect to a power plant or feeder station?
19:10:56  <supermop_> overhead electric boats?

19:17:42  *** andythenorth_ has joined #openttd
19:17:53  <Samu> i'm investigating epictrans code, it looks similar to wrightai
19:18:02  <Samu> it does have german and english commentaries
19:18:08  <Samu> seems like copy pastes of other ais
19:18:28  <Samu> there's a OTVI part
19:18:31  <andythenorth_> Wolf01 there would be n newgrf defined extra types
19:19:26  <andythenorth_> I wanted to find a way to separate concerns - NotRoadTypes base patch, then extend for newgrf
19:19:44  <andythenorth_> Otherwise it's a big piece of work
19:19:52  <Wolf01> Yes, indeed
19:20:34  <andythenorth_> Newgrf requires defining spec for vehicles and road tiles
19:20:39  <andythenorth_> Updating tools
19:20:43  <andythenorth_> Etc
19:20:53  <Wolf01> I was just wondering why we had different types for just catenary
19:21:05  <andythenorth_> It will grow :D
19:23:00  <andythenorth_> But splitting street/tram is useful meanwhile imo
19:23:22  <andythenorth_> Especially I can now have a hotkey for autotram :)
19:23:32  <Wolf01> :D
19:29:45  <andythenorth_> bloody ships
19:29:55  <andythenorth_> Trains and trucks have a logic
19:30:19  <Wolf01> Ok, now we have a catenary bit and gui separation, and I'm too afraid to write ltrail_type.h and tamper with road_type.h
19:30:28  <andythenorth_> We have passenger vehicles, mail vehicles, different kinds of freight vehicles
19:30:38  <andythenorth_> Ships are just a mess :p
19:31:22  <andythenorth_> Wolf01 how completely do you envisage splitting ltrail and street?
19:31:58  <andythenorth_> Does anything remain shared? o_O
19:32:24  <Wolf01> Almost all is the same, functions only need type change on params
19:34:54  <Wolf01> I'm a bit confused and uncertain on what to do: lot of code duplication or lot of changes on existing code
19:36:39  <andythenorth_> I thought mostly change existing code, when I read it
19:36:40  <Wolf01> I think I'll start to make a hardcoded roadtype like "dirt road" and gradually remove the "tram" from "road"
19:37:02  <andythenorth_> Notably the drawing code seemed best unified
19:37:08  <Wolf01> Just to see all the changes it needs
19:37:12  <andythenorth_> Construction...maybe
19:37:19  <Wolf01> And then I'll remove the "dirt road" too
19:41:33  <andythenorth_> If you put a temporary 'dirt road' flag on a default vehicle, you'll find all the things like depot list etc that will need patched for newgrf types :)
19:43:07  <Wolf01> That's the fear I had... Also I might need to split vehicles too, but before or after the RoadTypes?
19:43:11  <Eddi|zuHause> <Wolf01> I'm a bit confused and uncertain on what to do: lot of code duplication or lot of changes on existing code <-- usually that's the point where inheritance comes in
19:43:44  <Eddi|zuHause> (or templates)
19:44:35  <Wolf01> I don't think the next patch will be a few lines of code
19:45:55  *** Arveen has quit IRC
19:48:07  <andythenorth_> Wolf01 vehicles should mostly be ok, all the heavy lifting on routing & drawing was done years agonfor trams
19:48:14  <andythenorth_> Ago *
19:48:49  <andythenorth_> I saw nothing to suggest splitting RoadVehicle into separate types
19:49:38  <Wolf01> For the same reason I don't find the need to split the RoadTypes, just unpacking them in the right way
19:50:29  <Wolf01> If in future we need another type which works like roads, as trains have (rail, monorail, maglev) we should just add another enum entry
19:50:51  <andythenorth_> +1
19:51:30  <Wolf01> Splitting gui and grf code is required
19:52:14  <Wolf01> A RoadType filter on vehicle list should already be there
19:53:19  <Wolf01> I could try to do something on unpacking the "StreetType", so I could test a convert tool between paved road and dirt road which don't affect the light rail
19:53:46  <Wolf01> Then remove the dirt road and let the grf doing the work
19:54:17  * Wolf01 needs to study how rail<->elrail works
20:00:06  <andythenorth_> I did some experiments with removal
20:00:19  <andythenorth_> Just need to clear the correct bits
20:00:45  <andythenorth_> iirc bridges and tunnels might be a PITA
20:01:01  <andythenorth_> Can't remember precisely

20:30:45  <supermop__> no reason to use 1 600t instead of 2 300t

21:06:25  *** HerzogDeXtEr has joined #openttd
21:06:28  <Wolf01> If I have 3 RoadTypes, 2 streets and 1 tram, I need to have just 1 street and 1 tram
21:06:51  <Wolf01> Not all of them or even 2 street types
21:08:47  <Eddi|zuHause> we have debated that for years. do you really allow multiple roadtypes? or only one roadtype and one tramtype? how to restrict trolleybus catenary to only some road bits?
21:09:01  <Eddi|zuHause> there was never a clear answer what would be best
21:09:02  <Wolf01> Exactly
21:09:17  <Eddi|zuHause> more flexibility needs more bits stored in the map
21:10:19  <Eddi|zuHause> imagine 4 road bits A,B,C,D with roads, then a tram going B,D and a trolleybus route going A,D. how to have no catenary on C?
21:11:34  <Wolf01> Yes, that's a problem we should address, but I can't even start to change this, rails are really different to roads
21:11:58  <Wolf01> Because you can only have one railtype per tile
21:12:18  <Wolf01> (that's the problem with diagonal rails of different types)
21:12:31  <Eddi|zuHause> there were some attempts to alter that
21:12:33  <supermop__> 2 railtypes per tile would be nice on diagonals
21:12:58  <Eddi|zuHause> with "stacked tiles" and whatnot
21:13:18  <Wolf01> The problem is that I'm stuck at functions, which all use "RoadTypes" type
21:13:27  *** andythenorth has joined #openttd
21:13:29  <Eddi|zuHause> michi_cc had somthing about that, and there's cirdan's fork

21:15:33  <andythenorth> Anything else gets horrible
21:15:33  <Wolf01> Yes
21:15:44  <andythenorth> Really horrible :)
21:16:09  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: but then, if trolleybus is a street type, you can't restrict the catenary to only some road bits, which will look horrible
21:16:15  <supermop__> 255 road types per tile
21:16:18  *** Wormnest_ has joined #openttd
21:16:23  <Eddi|zuHause> or you construct the catenary from adjacent tile data
