05:54:12  <Pikka> o/
05:55:06  <andythenorth> lo bird
05:57:03  <Pikka> lo
06:05:05  <Pikka> boats are fun
06:05:15  <Pikka> you get to invent your own pathfinder
06:05:32  <peter1138> :/
06:05:49  <andythenorth> lawks
06:06:04  <andythenorth> but at least no need to figure out how many docks the station has ;)
06:06:13  <peter1138> :\
06:06:23  <andythenorth> think you'll deal with building docks on rivers? o_O
06:06:55  <Pikka> can you build docks on rivers?
06:07:47  <andythenorth> if you build a canal and raise land yes
06:07:55  <andythenorth> otherwise no
06:08:11  <Pikka> well, definitely not then
06:08:56  <Pikka> it's pretty similar to the airport building... it sticks a dock in if it's got an appropriate location, then connects them up with routes later
06:09:55  <andythenorth>
06:10:34  <andythenorth> fancy!
06:11:28  <Pikka> yeah, it certainly won't be building anything like that :P
06:12:55  <andythenorth> it shouldn't :P
06:12:58  <andythenorth> 'flat docks'
06:16:55  <V453000> :
06:16:57  <V453000> )
06:16:58  <V453000> yo
06:17:32  <peter1138> flat white docks
06:18:18  <V453000> andythenorth: do you think it's entirely impossible to code the vehicles with detection of 1 part type for max speed, with the position detection? Would something like making a max of 1 max speed part per train help and is that even possible?
06:18:32  <V453000> thing is, the engine-wagons can do power, T.E., weight, capacity on their own
06:18:38  <V453000> but the max speed not
06:19:11  <V453000> max speed is definitely something that every player will try to push as far as they can, so limiting to 1 per train is kind of eh
06:19:30  <V453000> at the same time it could properly break the balance of the whole set :D
06:22:26  <andythenorth> the max speed vehicle will have a specific ID
06:22:42  <andythenorth> but I can't think of a reliable way to find the position
06:24:32  <V453000> hm
06:28:29  <V453000> I can't do anything like taking results of switches, right? I have to literally have every single possible outcome in some switch
06:29:13  <V453000> taking / adding / subtracting / multiplying
06:29:52  <V453000> I know in NUTS I have switches like 1: 2*5;   2: 2*10; and so on, but I can't use a variable in that line, right?
06:29:55  <andythenorth> you can do limited storage of results
06:30:15  <andythenorth> you can't read props of other vehicles in cb36
06:30:19  <andythenorth> which is what kills you
06:31:40  <V453000> oh that's the store_temp thing
06:31:51  <V453000> ok, fundamental question
06:32:02  <V453000> how do you guys find "cb36", action whatever etc
06:32:09  <V453000> I can never find anything in the grf specs
06:32:23  <andythenorth> I always read the nfo specs first
06:32:25  <andythenorth> not nml
06:32:26  <andythenorth>
06:32:45  <andythenorth> nml is 'fine' but it's just a mass of keywords
06:32:56  <andythenorth> it doesn't give any idea of what's actually happening
06:33:14  <V453000> right, well I understand and accept that part, it's just that I never cound find shit in the grf :P
06:33:59  <andythenorth> so the killer problem is that you can't read props on other vehicles
06:34:03  <andythenorth> which is going to be a VA2
06:34:15  <andythenorth> so we go here
06:34:26  <andythenorth> then we find
06:34:38  <andythenorth> which has the sad line "It is not supported during a callback that is used to modify vehicle properties to avoid circular dependencies, which currently limits this variable to callbacks 1D, 2D, 31 and 32 plus outside callback scope."
06:35:57  <V453000> I guess the fact that I only need to update it when constructing the vehicle in the depot doesn't save it
06:36:02  <andythenorth> nope
06:37:21  <V453000> so I can't do stuff like save position_in_consist to a store_temp and then go through the consist and see the binary code of the train like 000101000111 for speed part positions and make huge switch out of that
06:37:30  <V453000> not to mention that I guess the switch would run out of IDs or something
06:38:43  <andythenorth> I can't think of anything that doesn't involve breaking the grf in other ways
06:38:54  <andythenorth> like, if all the other vehicles used same ID, you could maybe do it
06:38:58  * andythenorth looks
06:39:40  <andythenorth> well
06:40:21  <andythenorth> if you had to use a specific vehicle ID for a specific position you could do it
06:40:29  <andythenorth> like if ID 101 could only go in position 1
06:40:36  <andythenorth> and ID 102 could only go in position 2
06:40:48  <andythenorth> but that's probably not what you want
06:41:08  <Eddi|zuHause> that sounds terrible
06:41:37  <Eddi|zuHause> but whenever i think something, V thinks the opposite, so he must now do it :p
06:41:55  <andythenorth> we could look in the extended props
06:42:02  <andythenorth> but they're usually useless :)
06:42:51  <V453000> yeah specific parts for specific positions doesn't sound too great andy
06:43:12  <V453000> Eddi|zuHause: haha, I'd love to, but it seems to be rather difficult so far
06:44:51  <Eddi|zuHause> V453000: i think your main problem is you can't use var 61
06:44:55  <andythenorth> +1
06:45:13  <andythenorth> there aren't many tricks to work around that
06:45:14  <V453000> I guess that's what we have discovered so far, yeah :D
06:45:30  <Eddi|zuHause> and all the reasons why that is disabled would also apply to any workaround you'd find
06:45:45  <V453000> :d
06:46:06  <andythenorth> if there was a var to measure number of vehicles to first occurence of ID n
06:46:08  <andythenorth> that would do it
06:46:31  <V453000> fuck frosch wrote me somewhere his idea how to do it about 2 years ago, but it was probably some short thought which I guess in the end is wrong
06:46:35  <V453000> need to find it
06:46:37  <V453000> but where :d
06:46:51  <andythenorth> a variation on var 40/41 would do it
06:46:57  <andythenorth> but not as they exist now
06:48:11  <Eddi|zuHause> you'd need a 60+ variable that takes a vehicle ID, and gives you the position (relative to SELF or PARENT)
06:48:52  <andythenorth> need one that can be called multiple times, with a parameter or mask for the count
06:49:01  <andythenorth> so you can read position of 1st, 2nd, etc
06:49:45  <andythenorth> position is immutable so it should be ok in cb36 and friends
06:50:37  <Eddi|zuHause> you could only sensibly find the first vehicle in this manner
06:50:56  <andythenorth> what about last?
06:51:22  <Eddi|zuHause> that would need a separate variable
06:51:29  <andythenorth> I could actually see other uses for this
06:51:37  <andythenorth> not exactly necessary ones though :P
06:51:50  <Eddi|zuHause> but last is slightly more expensive algorithmically
06:52:08  <andythenorth> it's cacheable though?
06:52:14  <andythenorth> these are static once depot is left
06:52:25  <Eddi|zuHause> you must loop through the whole consist, and need a storage for the last encounter
06:52:57  <Eddi|zuHause> it's not cacheable because you'd need a separate cache for each possible parameter
06:53:09  <andythenorth> hmm
06:53:16  <andythenorth> I defer to you
06:53:27  <andythenorth> I was thinking some mapping ID:[positions]
06:53:50  <Eddi|zuHause> you don't want to store that in a vehicle
06:53:57  <andythenorth> ok
06:54:17  <Eddi|zuHause> vehicles kinda need to be fixed size
06:54:25  <Eddi|zuHause> not some dynamic storage like that
06:54:32  <andythenorth> right
06:55:09  <Eddi|zuHause> but you don't really need it to be cached, if the result of the callback is cached
06:56:04  <andythenorth> V453000: what does the position gain you, as a player?
06:56:46  <Eddi|zuHause> anyway, suppose we implemented this "first occurance of <ID>" variable, what you could then do is let the player decide which stat he wants to prioritize by the order of the first wagons
06:58:08  <V453000> It's extremely essential, the whole idea of the parts adding different bonuses is great and makes the trains really customized by the player, but the position is  what makes it truly interesting as then you have to prioritize which parts do you put in the front more
06:58:29  <Eddi|zuHause> so if you have 3 booster wagons A,B and C, the player can then do E,B,C,A,(following in any order)
06:58:46  <V453000> yes Eddi
06:59:49  <V453000> But if I didn't care about position, I guess it would make sense to just put together a total from the number of specific part type units in the consist, and divide it by total consist length?
06:59:50  <Eddi|zuHause> depending on how difficult you want to code your grf, you could also catch cases of "E,B,B,C,A,..."
06:59:52  <V453000> Would that work?
07:00:06  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
07:00:17  <peter1138> Are we coding a new variable?
07:00:17  <V453000> at this point I'm mainly asking about possiblity, difficulty is fine
07:00:48  <Eddi|zuHause> number of vehicles you can already get with existing variables
07:00:58  <V453000> that's what I thought
07:01:45  <andythenorth> peter1138: haven't had one for ~5 years
07:01:49  <andythenorth> maybe it's time? o_O
07:02:10  <Eddi|zuHause> well,you could simply extend var60 to also give you the first (or also last) position
07:02:26  <peter1138> Hmm
07:02:33  <Eddi|zuHause> then do some bitmagic to filter it out
07:02:33  <peter1138> If there's space, that makes sense.
07:03:00  <peter1138> And if it doesn't conflict, of course. Reserved space is handy.
07:03:04  <Eddi|zuHause> Count Veh.ID occurence (60)
07:03:06  <Eddi|zuHause> Format: xxxxxxnn
07:03:16  <andythenorth> it would potentially have other uses
07:03:18  <peter1138> Is that all?
07:03:19  <Eddi|zuHause> so these xx's seem to be unused
07:03:41  <andythenorth> when randomising sprites, this *could* be used for better results
07:03:44  <peter1138> Oh, then bits 8-15 can be first position and 16-24 can be last position. Or something.
07:03:51  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah
07:03:56  <Eddi|zuHause> pretty much
07:04:16  <peter1138> Could be 4 bits each if you don't care about trains longer than 16 :p
07:04:20  <Eddi|zuHause> should be about 10LOC
07:04:23  <peter1138> But I guess that's a silly restriction.
07:04:37  <Eddi|zuHause> nah, must be 8
07:04:44  <Eddi|zuHause> bits
07:19:26  *** andythenorth has quit IRC
07:20:22  <peter1138> ?
07:21:55  <peter1138> Hmm, I should test it compiles :p
07:23:28  <Eddi|zuHause> init last to 0xFF as well?
07:23:45  <Eddi|zuHause> in case vehicle does not appear, first=0xFF, last=0 seems wrong
07:24:33  <Eddi|zuHause> what's max train length anyway? 128?
07:26:20  <V453000> I guess 128 yeah
07:27:04  <peter1138> Is it? Okay.
07:27:42  <peter1138> Reuploaded. Bit simpler.
07:27:50  <peter1138> (Removed the min()s.
07:27:51  <peter1138> )
07:27:56  <V453000> 2 years ago, frosch wrote me this piece of idea
07:28:19  <V453000> when I asked him if anything like the boost obtained from wagons is possible
07:30:19  <Eddi|zuHause> V453000: that can probably be simplified with var 60
07:33:15  <Eddi|zuHause> also, it could probably be simplified with function calls, but that was never implemented in NML
07:36:08  <Eddi|zuHause> V453000: anyway, that piece of code seems to use var 61, which we determined doesn't actually work in the power callback
07:40:10  <peter1138> Hi, so is this var60 change useful?
07:40:51  <peter1138> Only issue I can see is that in unsupported versions you'll get 0 not 0xFF.
07:41:12  <peter1138> So it might make sense to count from 1 instead?
07:41:36  <peter1138> So that 0x00 means invalid and 0x01 means "first position".
07:42:07  <peter1138> Dunno how this would affect using the var.
07:56:34  *** andythenorth has joined #openttd
07:58:20  <Eddi|zuHause> that doesn't make a lot of sense
07:58:32  <Eddi|zuHause> the other positions are all 0-based
07:59:26  <Eddi|zuHause> and NewGRFs do have ways to check versions, so it's not that much of a problem
08:08:52  <peter1138> Yeah.
08:09:29  <peter1138> Hmm, wonder how that works without svn revisions now. I know there were some changes for it.
08:09:51  <Eddi|zuHause> i was wondering the same thing. is it now date-based?
08:17:45  <peter1138> Hmm, seems to just be the OpenTTD version, so for master builds it is 1.9.0 currently.
08:18:07  <peter1138> Also, 1.16.16 is not permitted :)
08:18:39  *** Lejving has joined #openttd
08:18:59  <Eddi|zuHause> well, newgrf version used to be a 4-byte value along the lines of 0x190<something incremental>
08:20:18  <Eddi|zuHause> with the highest bit of <something incremental> meaning "release"
08:20:41  <peter1138> Yeah, now it's just 0x19080000 for release, and 0x19000000 for not.
08:20:57  <Eddi|zuHause> that seems impractical
08:20:59  <peter1138> I guess adding a date is slightly useful.
08:22:42  <peter1138> We already bump the version so bugfix releases will still be flagged as lower version, regardless of the date.
08:23:01  <peter1138> So, encode the date into 19 bits.
08:23:01  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah
08:23:17  <Eddi|zuHause> just make sure the date doesn't overflow between two releasess
08:23:44  <peter1138> Possible make the epoch be the last release date.
08:24:04  <peter1138> Makes it less likely to overflow.
08:24:17  <Eddi|zuHause> that might work
08:24:32  <Eddi|zuHause> another thing that has to be updated manually on each release, though
08:24:41  <peter1138> Maybe.
08:24:54  <peter1138> May be possible to pull it from git.
08:25:45  <Eddi|zuHause> and completely throw out support for hg people?
08:25:46  <peter1138> $ git log -1 --format=%ai 1.8.0
08:25:46  <peter1138> 2018-04-01 11:14:34 +0000
08:25:50  <peter1138> Yes.
08:26:05  <Eddi|zuHause> seems a bit drastic
08:26:07  <peter1138> hg was only there because we were using svn and didn't know if hg or git would win.
08:26:20  <peter1138> There's no need to use hg now we are fully on board with git.
08:27:15  <peter1138> It's also slightly awkward for developing, as you don't know what the real version will be until it's committed.
08:27:55  <peter1138> But then again it always was, just easier to predict svn revision, until someone else commits.
08:27:56  <Eddi|zuHause> well, the other way would be a newgrf version in the code, similar to savegame version
08:28:07  <Eddi|zuHause> which gets bumped whenever a newgrf feature is implemented
08:28:15  <peter1138> Could do.
08:28:27  <peter1138> Reset it to 0 on release.
08:28:53  <peter1138> Hmm, I suppose there are no other implementations of NewGRF that matter any more :p
08:29:21  <andythenorth> facts on the ground
08:29:32  <peter1138> Actually.
08:29:38  <andythenorth> until someone does a substantial fork with newgrf API change
08:29:43  <Eddi|zuHause> well, TTDPatch version was always completely separate
08:29:46  <andythenorth> only one game in town
08:30:19  <Eddi|zuHause> but the OpenTTD NewGRF version doesn't really handle forks and patches in any sensible way
08:30:23  <peter1138> Oh, git rev-list doesn't quite work.
08:30:53  <peter1138> Well forks can implement their own solution :p
08:32:12  <andythenorth> forking the newgrf API would need a very good reason
08:32:13  <peter1138> Ah
08:32:16  <peter1138>  git rev-list --count 1.8.0..HEAD
08:32:16  <peter1138> 89
08:32:19  <andythenorth> it's pretty much unwise
08:32:21  <peter1138> Maybe that's good enough.
08:32:51  <peter1138> Not quite right with branch, but once committed it is stable.
08:32:56  <peter1138> *branching.
08:33:50  <peter1138> Easier to use than working it out from dates.
08:36:16  <Eddi|zuHause> but is that stable across clones?
08:36:43  <Eddi|zuHause> assuming people do really weird stuff with their git
08:37:15  <peter1138> Yes.
08:37:43  <peter1138> You can't insert a commit in a past without rewriting history, and then it's no longer a clone.
08:42:59  <peter1138> Hmm, don't think I can automatically determine the last release version in the history anyway.

16:39:18  <andythenorth> awesome :)
16:39:20  <andythenorth> V453000: ^^
16:39:34  <andythenorth> now nml needs patched ;)
16:39:39  <andythenorth> V can do that

16:52:03  <nielsm> michi_cc: I'll close the "kill dmusic" PR for now and submit one with some bugfixes instead :)
16:52:55  <V453000> peter1138: I'm almost afraid what does that do? :)
16:55:06  <V453000> ah so for example when I have wagons AA BB CCC I can get positions 0-1 for A,  2-3 for B and 4-6 for C? What kind of values would it give with ABBCCCBBB?

17:52:27  <peter1138> V453000, you get the first and last
17:53:03  <peter1138> for ABBCCCBBB you'd get 0-0 for A, 1-8 for B and 3-5 for C
17:53:27  <peter1138> V453000, hence I dunno what it's useful for :p
17:54:07  <peter1138> last is probably unneeded
17:54:19  <peter1138> But first lets you prioritise things I guess.
17:54:43  <peter1138> Maybe variations. I dunno.
18:02:03  *** frosch123 has joined #openttd
18:02:56  <Borg> arghh.. guys..
18:03:07  <Borg> I saw change in 1,8.0 regarding stockpile industries..
18:03:18  <Borg> really... Coal: 1000 tons waiting looks terrible
18:03:30  <Borg> I changed it myself to: Coal (1000 tons waiting)
18:03:45  <Borg> I guess its just matter of taste.... but..
18:07:44  <peter1138> Never seen it but I guess it was changed for consistency.
18:11:54  <frosch123> wow, never noticed that var60 only specified the lower 8 bits
18:12:25  *** gelignite has joined #openttd
18:12:25  <frosch123> i am even more impressed that nml actually masks it, and that ttdp actually stores junk in the upper bits, so that likely all grfs actually mask it
18:12:28  <LordAro> i seem to recall that being complained about at length already
18:13:54  <peter1138> LordAro, oh? Somebody patching for super long trains?
18:14:11  <LordAro> no, the industry cargo waiting stuff
18:14:16  <peter1138> Oh :)
18:16:33  <frosch123> i think we had a bug report about the japanese trainset once
18:16:56  <frosch123> they had a wagon with 3 articulated parts, which all used the same id, and they switched graphics via "position in chain" % 3
18:17:19  <frosch123> someone built a train with more than 256 articulated parts, so one wagon was "broken"
18:17:32  <peter1138> o_O
18:18:08  <frosch123> we blamed it on the grf :p
18:19:01  <peter1138> Hmm, max train length is 64 tiles.
18:20:05  <frosch123> i think it used to be "number of wagon", not "number of tiles"
18:20:28  <peter1138> Well, 64 tiles is 128 standard-length wagons. Hmm.
18:20:39  <peter1138> So to push 256 you'd need tiny wagons.
18:27:52  <V453000> frosch123: remember sending me this? :P
18:28:27  <V453000> peter1138: interesting, I need to think how to utilize that :)
18:28:48  <frosch123> no :p
18:29:19  <V453000> well it's been 2 years :P
18:29:23  <frosch123> i think last night we concluded that var61 does not work
18:29:39  <V453000> I guess
18:29:53  <V453000> I guess this thing from peter does not contribute enough to that?
18:30:05  <LordAro> thought: regression test grf
18:31:06  <peter1138> What's the issue with var61? Caching?
18:31:18  <frosch123> V453000: peter's diff would allow you to detect the first and last booster part, but not the 2nd and 2nd last
18:31:44  <peter1138> Right, I don't know what V453000 wants, and what is useful in general :-)
18:32:11  <peter1138> That functionality could be achieved, if it makes sense.
18:32:54  <V453000> peter1138: I would love to be able to have an engine with "booster wagons" so that the wagons add the engine's max speed, but in a way where the wagons add some_value / position_in_consist amount of power, so the later in the vehicle you use it the less effect it has, with some cap at 20 units
18:33:11  <V453000> *amount of power = amount of speed
18:33:43  <peter1138> Ok, then yeah, what I did is not that useful.
18:33:44  <V453000> the overall aim is to make a set with customizable trains controlled by wagon configurations
18:34:31  <peter1138> The "/position_in_consist" thing could be done really easily as a var
18:34:40  <peter1138> But that's possibly rather specific :p
18:34:59  <peter1138> Otoh... there's another 8 bits... :p
18:35:58  <frosch123> V453000: just go for "number of booster vehicles" and don't care about the position
18:36:16  <V453000> well more specifically I'd want some_value / (position_in_consist +2) because first 2 is engine :P but yeah
18:36:27  <V453000> frosch123: I'm considering how much would that remove and/or if I can design around that
18:36:37  <V453000> like, dividing the efficiency by total train length
18:37:59  <peter1138> Hmm.
18:38:12  <peter1138> Alternatively...
18:38:30  <peter1138> A bitmask
18:38:40  <peter1138> Would only work for consists < 24 bits :p
18:38:46  <peter1138> Er, less than 24 wagons.
18:39:14  <frosch123> add a FOREACH variable :p
18:39:28  <peter1138> I think that would even make /position_in_consist super easy
18:39:29  <frosch123> call this action2 chain for each vehicle
18:39:31  <Borg> noooooooo. I already have plenty of 26+2 loco trains
18:39:32  <Borg> :)
18:41:18  <peter1138> ABBCCCBBB would then be 100000000 for A, 011000111 for B and 000111000 for C.
18:41:26  <peter1138> (in binary)
18:41:34  <peter1138> 0x100, 0xC7 and 0x38 in hex.
18:41:40  <V453000> that's something that I imagined gathering through switches but I guess that's not doable
18:42:15  <frosch123> you can gather some info via the user-bits in var42
18:42:44  <peter1138> I dunno how easy it is to work with bits in general though
18:43:04  <peter1138> Like a find-first-bit function in varactions...
18:43:39  <frosch123> 24 switches with masks, each of them querying the variable again :p
18:44:00  <peter1138> Yeah :(
18:44:19  <frosch123> anyway, i think the issue with var61 were those variables which expose the user-bit-mask and current max-speed and stuff
18:44:22  *** supermop_work has joined #openttd
18:44:36  <frosch123> people wanted define their own properties depending on the properties of the vehicle in front and vice versa
18:44:54  <peter1138> Yeah that'll give you dependency issues.
18:45:03  <frosch123> var61 is fine for things which cannot be changed via callbacks
18:45:28  <frosch123> so we could possibly also add a list of valid variables to var61
18:45:34  <frosch123> instead of only a list of callbacks
18:58:03  *** sla_ro|master has quit IRC
19:11:48  <peter1138> Any views on using & in function signatures?

19:18:44  <Eddi|zuHause> Wolf01: concerning TF, yes, i have played with the beta version of that patch a bit, it was fine. just i have noticed an annoying change/bug where you cannot build a track directly parallel to a freight station anymore (passenger is still fine)

20:59:49  <frosch123> i think it is inverted
21:00:08  <frosch123> _input_events_this_tick makes sure that it is only called once or so
21:00:28  <frosch123> it's a comment to the "else" case of the if above
21:02:22  <frosch123> i would replace "already" with "not yet"
21:02:43  <frosch123> possibly with an "_input_event_this_tick == 0 comment"
