Times are UTC Toggle Colours
01:00:05  <supermop_Home_> Eddi|zuHause the rgb values of the 5th shade of each cc, shaded by rendering in vray with neutral lighting
01:01:16  <supermop_Home_> basically, could you have rendered 32bpp sprites that evoke the same feeling as the 8bpp sprites, if you limit the rendering materials to colors in the DOS palette
01:02:30  <supermop_Home_> so you might end up with shades not in the palette, but the hues would at least be consistent
01:06:11  <Eddi|zuHause> i haven't understood a word of what you just said
01:07:24  <supermop_Home_> its more of a style approach i guess
01:08:27  <supermop_Home_> just force oneself to use the same set of colors when modeling items to render as one would when drawing pixels
01:08:43  <supermop_Home_> rather than just rendering and maybe clamping to the palette after the fact

09:50:26  <_dp_> andythenorth, blue background looks meh
09:51:08  <andythenorth> strictly it should be grey, but grey is so boring
09:51:56  <_dp_> make it lighter?
09:52:08  <_dp_> otherwise it just blends with color rects and liveries
09:56:08  <_dp_> also you have 2 grey examples but no white :p
09:57:25  <Eddi|zuHause> it's not immediately obvious what the different liveries are supposed to show
09:59:36  <andythenorth> it's quite a BAD FEATURE
09:59:48  <andythenorth> I'm not sure it's anything other than confusing
10:00:05  <andythenorth> but I don't like the provided method for liveries in the newgrf spec :)
10:02:19  <andythenorth> this light blue might be better
10:04:38  <_dp_> not sure I like the color but it works
10:05:07  <Eddi|zuHause> now the column separators disappear
10:05:25  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause good point thanks
10:05:32  <andythenorth> I think the blue can even be lighter maybe
10:05:42  <andythenorth> I'm using DOS palette colours for no good reason :P
10:05:53  <_dp_> xD
10:11:03  <DorpsGek_III> [OpenTTD/OpenTTD] techgeeknz updated pull request #8285: Rewrite `OverflowSafeInt` to avoid undefined behaviour
10:12:46  <andythenorth> we could just do newgrf liveries
10:12:55  <andythenorth> but I don't really want to be involved in spec change :P
10:13:09  <andythenorth> and nobody has ever proposed an implementation that convinced anybody else
10:15:47  <milek7> huh, month ago I bought 4K monitors
10:16:16  <milek7> now I bought 1080p laptop and I'm already annoyed at yagged fonts :P
10:16:17  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: what problem is that meant to solve?
10:16:36  <andythenorth> well
10:16:43  <andythenorth> I am unsure
10:17:02  <Eddi|zuHause> see, that's the first problem with convincing anyone :p
10:17:09  <andythenorth> some grfs appear to be what pikka calls 'survey sets'
10:17:31  <andythenorth> and they have that awful livery interface via the refits
10:19:50  <andythenorth> for Iron Horse, wagons / coaches have 2 livery choices, selected by flipping in depot
10:19:58  <andythenorth> which is odd but works
10:20:13  <andythenorth> engines cannot use that as depot-flip is not available for articulated vehicles
10:20:41  <andythenorth> so I have been exploring using company colours
10:20:59  <andythenorth> this is only just viable, as it's quite confusing
10:21:33  <andythenorth> the 1CC colour(s) have to be chosen very carefully as they must be set via groups
10:21:41  <andythenorth> and the group can't set different colours for engines / wagons
10:21:54  <andythenorth> so some 1CC choices produce awful looking wagons/coaches
10:22:09  <andythenorth> also some 2CC combos have to be banned as they look very bad
10:24:27  <andythenorth> one proposal was vehicle variants (copies of the vehicle with a different ID), so the livery is just chosen explicitly via the buy menu
10:24:31  <andythenorth> but that idea died
10:25:10  <andythenorth> I did somewhat try one vehicle per livery in the buy menu, but it's quite spammy
10:25:39  <andythenorth> a further option I could explore is to set the engine livery depending on the cargo, or on wagons in the consist
10:26:33  <andythenorth> but not all liveries look good with all colour combos, so it might still need to check company colours
10:29:18  <Eddi|zuHause> <andythenorth> also some 2CC combos have to be banned as they look very bad <-- i kinda disagree.
10:29:20  <DorpsGek_III> [OpenTTD/OpenTTD] techgeeknz commented on pull request #8285: Rewrite `OverflowSafeInt` to avoid undefined behaviour
10:29:33  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause arguably it's the player's choice?
10:29:40  <andythenorth> I'm 50:50 currently
10:30:34  <andythenorth> I'm also trying offering just 'default' and 'alternative'
10:30:44  <andythenorth> rather than 4 or 5 options with more confusing rules
10:34:27  <andythenorth> ok 1 alternative is easier to understand
10:34:35  <andythenorth> another case where 'more' is not better
10:41:50  <Eddi|zuHause> "most people" will only ever see one single livery
10:42:00  <andythenorth> yes
10:42:12  <andythenorth> my audience here is probably me, Supermop and Dave Worley
11:01:48  <andythenorth> this is just simpler
11:53:17  <andythenorth> oof I hate getattr() :P
11:53:52  <andythenorth> getattr(my_obj, 'foo, None) masks a lot of errors when refactoring 'foo' to 'bar'
11:54:02  <Eddi|zuHause> and i need to finish this astroneer automation challenge
11:54:30  <andythenorth> don't use getattr :P
11:54:33  <andythenorth> for that
11:54:50  <TrueBrain> use getattr with a lot of care, yes :)
11:55:12  <TrueBrain> it also breaks a lot of linting :)
11:56:07  <Eddi|zuHause> you could, like, use a variable "foo" that contains the text 'foo'
11:57:06  <Eddi|zuHause> that would massively reduce the places that need manual touching on refactoring
11:57:32  <Eddi|zuHause> alternatively, you could use try/except like normal people
12:00:31  <TrueBrain> I love the judgement call there, a true gatekeeper remark right there :)
12:01:53  <andythenorth> I enjoy eddi critiques
12:02:42  <andythenorth> 'normally' I just pollute the parent class with attrs that only some sub-classes need
12:02:51  <andythenorth> I decided to see what happens if I don't do that
12:03:00  <andythenorth> the answer is a lot of getattr() :P
12:03:10  <andythenorth> I suspect it's worse than polluting the parent class
12:03:28  <Eddi|zuHause> design patterns are weird :)
12:03:59  <andythenorth> " = None" turns out to just be more explicit for these cases
12:04:12  <andythenorth> where all the sub-classes are similar, and only have subtle differences
12:04:14  <Eddi|zuHause> people defend them religiously as if they were the pinacle of software development, yet all of them have significant downsides
12:04:40  <andythenorth> I thought recently about how much comp sci asserts 'science' and how much of it is just fashion
12:04:50  <andythenorth> people reach to defend a pattern or practice or habit
12:04:55  <andythenorth> with empirical evidence
12:05:18  <andythenorth> but it's usually a failure of induction vs. deduction
12:05:50  <Eddi|zuHause> that's a primary source of confirmation bias
12:06:29  <Eddi|zuHause> when you go looking for empirical evidence to support the thing you already deem true, you will find it.
12:07:19  <andythenorth> it attracts people who tend to model it as a maths problem
12:07:29  <andythenorth> due to it having quite a lot of maths-type problems
12:07:49  <andythenorth> but writing working software is often more like building a house than doing maths
12:08:28  <andythenorth> building systems at scale is nothing like building a house
12:08:38  <andythenorth> but nor is that a maths problem either
12:09:02  <andythenorth> and if you let linguists do the work, you get Perl :(
12:11:07  <Eddi|zuHause> or worse: cobol :p

12:51:36  <supermop_Home_> andythenorth i'm down for a supermop only horse release
12:51:50  <andythenorth> lot of unfinished sprites currently
12:52:04  <andythenorth> I can DM you what I have, at your risk :P
12:52:22  <andythenorth> also I stripped it down to 1 alternative livery per engine
12:52:23  <supermop_Home_> andythenorth: render material experiment
12:52:29  <supermop_Home_> booooo
12:52:32  <andythenorth> ooh
12:52:57  <supermop_Home_> well i wasn't going to ise the EWS liveries anyway
13:01:03  <andythenorth> need an alternative gronk livery :P
13:01:15  <andythenorth> schenker is my favourite, but not until 2000s :P
13:01:34  <Timberwolf> Only problem with using TTD palette colours to build your objects is you end up with output where you may as well dither it down to 8bpp anyway, the difference is marginal.
13:02:00  <Timberwolf> (At least, unless you're on a low pixel density screen at high zoom)
13:02:36  <Timberwolf> The palette is quite good for "I already have this colour, I just want it lighter or darker"
13:03:18  <andythenorth> how's the play test going Timberwolf?
13:03:40  <Timberwolf> 2009 or so!
13:04:10  <Timberwolf> I have some annoying clipping bugs that really should be fixed, but I'm not sure if I want to fix it before first version or after.
13:04:36  <andythenorth> I always vote for 'later' when a set is quite new
13:04:40  <andythenorth> get it out there
13:05:01  <Timberwolf> The regular sprites when not going in to or out of a turn should be split in 3 so OpenTTD is rendering what it actually thinks it has, 3 articulated vehicles of L2/L4/L2.
13:05:23  <Timberwolf> Er, actually I just listed one of the cases where there are no clipping problems, pretend I said L3/L6/L3 :p
13:05:35  <andythenorth> sounds painful if cargo is included :)
13:05:40  <andythenorth> are you automating it?
13:05:47  <Timberwolf> Yeah.
13:05:52  <Timberwolf> Sprite stacks ftw.
13:06:34  <Timberwolf> I think I might get GoRender to do something like "only render this slice of object" rather than trying to create a million different subdivided types of train model
13:07:57  <Eddi|zuHause> Timberwolf: but isn't that exactly what i did in CETS?
13:09:31  <Timberwolf> Eddi|zuHause: I don't think I ever delved deep enough for that (I did look at how CETS did the turn switches), but it makes sense. I found the posts you wrote around the time you were prototyping that really helpful.
13:09:40  <Eddi|zuHause> Timberwolf: iirc there were a few corner cases with slopes/foundations
13:09:42  <supermop_Home_> andythenorth NSE
13:09:52  <andythenorth> supermop_Home_ doesn't work at pixel sizes :P
13:09:59  <andythenorth> have to do Extra Zoom :P
13:10:22  <Timberwolf> Yep, exactly that. Tunnels and depots, and tiles on foundations.
13:10:40  <Timberwolf> Stations on foundations are the biggest problem because it's the case where you see it for more than a split second.
13:10:43  <supermop_Home_> executive then?
13:11:02  <Eddi|zuHause> Timberwolf: iirc MB once did attempt to fix those, but he hasn't told me how he did it
13:11:21  <supermop_Home_> actually the gner 08 with the 1/3 length stripe is nice
13:11:50  <supermop_Home_> or virgin just plain red and black
13:12:03  <andythenorth>
13:12:23  <andythenorth> not enough pixels :P
13:12:24  <supermop_Home_> someone easily could have painted the virgin or gner liveries in the 50s
13:12:26  *** nielsm has joined #openttd
13:12:38  <Timberwolf> I'm mostly procrastinating on it because it means figuring out more alignments.
13:12:47  <Timberwolf> Alignments and me have a love/hate relationship.
13:13:10  <Timberwolf> On the one hand, what I'm doing is only possible because you can abuse xrel/yrel all over the place and OpenTTD will still render it.
13:13:17  <supermop_Home_> Timberwolf the idea is to not have to pick out all the lighter / darker shades
13:13:24  <Timberwolf> On the other... (runs screaming)
13:36:50  <supermop_Home_> though CC is not what i'd use this for
13:37:02  <supermop_Home_> just using that to test fidelity
13:37:33  <andythenorth> now I need to....improve presentation of train stats :)
13:38:04  <andythenorth> table? list? top trumps?
13:45:14  <supermop_Home_> i want to use it more to model buildings that are brick or concrete, with noise or displacement added, but with the hues in the spirit of the dos palette

14:19:29  <supermop_Home_> Timberwolf what are you working in?
14:33:21  <Timberwolf> MagicaVoxel for building the objects.
14:35:39  <Timberwolf> Then my own tooling for combining and rendering them (and templating NML) because I like things to go wrong during the build process and have them be my fault.

15:16:29  <supermop_Home_> what i'm looking to do is a little different, as i am modeling furniture and buildings every day in rhino+grasshopper with v-ray, so looking for a way to make Foster-y looking renderings with the toolset i'm already using for work
15:17:51  <supermop_Home_> and hopefully if instead of using bitmap textures i use surfaces with palette colors applied, the end result after rendering and scaling will be something that doesn't look muddy or lifeless

16:38:50  <andythenorth> 2. if you smoke crack, re-create tabular data in other structures, like nested divs, or dumb crap
16:39:07  <andythenorth> 3. if you don't smoke crack, use <table> for tabular data....EXCEPT
16:39:47  <andythenorth> 4. when the data only contains 1 set of headings and 1 set of values, in which case anyone who doesn't use <dl> is killing kittens and causing the heat death of the universe

20:02:23  <andythenorth> :)
20:03:16  <andythenorth> I want to show related engines on the page, or visualise some part of the tech tree or something
20:03:28  <andythenorth> it feels very easy to get lost currently

21:59:50  <andythenorth> I stuck in some tech tree crap at the bottom
22:00:51  <GT> On we have many direct links to bananas like: . But that seems to be broken. Is there a new link-scheme, or just not available anymore?

22:09:28  <glx> GT: for now there's no direct download link
22:10:23  <GT> Does that mean it will return or should we remove it from the wiki?
22:28:37  <b_jonas> ok, I think I figured out how to work around this town where I can't raise my authority rating
22:29:35  <GT> Bribe 'em or plant trees
22:30:16  <b_jonas> already too many trees around them
22:31:02  <glx> remove trees then replant
22:31:18  <glx> rating can't drop more ;)
22:31:54  <b_jonas> glx: I might do that for some other towns
22:32:06  <b_jonas> but here, I can extend the station so that the corner of the new part of the station will be out of their zone, while I keep the existing part inside their zone so it catches the cider mill. it will be an ugly station, but it works
22:33:33  <b_jonas> in the previous game I managed that by building bus stations and bus services in many towns just to keep my authority rating up if there aren't other services that keep it up, but that's annoying, plus I don't want the towns to grow too big early, and this is a FIRS game where I'm concentrating on industry and don't want to make passenger services until later
22:35:31  <_dp_> enable magic bulldozer or set economy.dist_local_authority 0
22:36:04  <b_jonas> _dp_: magic bulldozer doesn't help me buld a station
22:36:16  <b_jonas> plus I'd consider it cheating if I used it that way
22:36:28  <_dp_> it will help you not get bad rating for trees in future
22:36:36  <b_jonas> I would be willing to use magic bulldozer to remove a statue of myself that's in the way
22:37:16  <b_jonas> I might try the tree thing later anyway, I hate ugly stations and will want to clean this up
22:37:29  <_dp_> lol, whatever, if that's cheating then, have fun dealing with authorities :p
22:38:22  <b_jonas> oh nice, the drag station size feature lets me build an 8 long station
22:38:41  <b_jonas> so I can actually build that and then remove the front 3 squares and then it won't be ugly
22:38:52  <b_jonas> it will look like a perfectly normal 5x5 station
22:40:55  <GT> and both unreachable. Wiki linkrot smell alert
22:44:10  <b_jonas> btw the cider mill has a spire with a white flag that is placed in just a way that it makes the path signal at the exit of the station look like a one-way path signal, that always looks like an error to me, but in fact it isn't one way, trains can leave the station on that exit
22:50:12  <b_jonas> this map is basically all dense forest by the way, except in the water parts and the squares covered by towns and industries
22:50:46  <b_jonas> it's ridiculous, the other maps I play usually have at least some areas without too many trees
22:51:13  <b_jonas> I guess it's partly because this FIRS temperate basic economy doesn't have farm field squares
22:51:17  <b_jonas> but even then
22:52:36  <b_jonas> ok, this farm network is fixed for now
22:53:54  <b_jonas> this might be the time when I enter passenger business, although I'd start with maglev because the good vac trains aren't invented yet
22:54:59  <b_jonas> either that, or I could try some more food business now that I have good trains
22:57:30  *** virtualrandomnumber has joined #openttd
22:59:16  <b_jonas> I could build a maglev to transport cattle both ways here

23:02:53  <b_jonas> transporting *milk* both ways here I mean
