10:17:27  <andythenorth>  it's a really special feature :)
10:38:31  *** jottyfan has joined #openttd
10:41:28  <NGC3982> hi guys
10:41:32  <NGC3982> great christmas
10:41:49  <TrueBrain> and same to you!
10:45:52  *** WormnestAndroid has quit IRC
10:55:41  <nielsm> TrueBrain: for the logic of trying to apply ttdpatch to openttd, I could imagine it went something like, "this looks like an old game. old games typically need patching to run on modern systems. I need to check if there are patches. okay I searched for "open ttd patch" and found this ttdpatch. but it doesn't work"
10:55:52  <andythenorth> TTD patch tuesday
10:56:43  <andythenorth> ok so pop quiz: how much yeast is produced per year in the EU
10:56:47  <andythenorth> give or take UK :P
10:56:56  * andythenorth exploring cargos
10:57:14  <nielsm> uh, 200 tonnes maybe
10:58:05  <andythenorth> any more bids?
10:58:28  <NGC3982> 200 tonnes is probably on the low end
10:58:45  <NGC3982> 500
10:58:59  <nielsm> "In USA companies like Lesaffre Group, AB Vista, GB Plange and AB Mauri, produced hundreds of thousands of metric tons of yeast in 2012.[citation needed]"
10:59:08  <andythenorth> it's about 1 million tonnes in Europe
10:59:11  <andythenorth> per year
10:59:25  <andythenorth> key bits of the economy you never see or hear about :P
10:59:54  <nielsm> yeah when I think yeast I think a 50 g cube like this,
11:01:14  <nielsm> and you need a lot of those to reach a million tonnes
11:02:29  <andythenorth> so transport is more like
11:11:58  <Rubidium> though a lot of produced yeast is turned into other products, e.g. flavouring. Want a roasted chicken flavour? Just dry some specific yeast and you got a roasted chicken flavour
11:13:26  <NGC3982> jesus christ
11:13:58  <NGC3982> yeah, the industrial usage must be like 90%
11:20:04  <Rubidium> might even be higher... remember they add ethanol to fuel? That (probably) requires a lot of yeast
11:25:55  <Rubidium> ballpark figure for EU usage of ethanol in fuel is ~100 000 million litres of ethanol (
11:28:05  * andythenorth continues exploring strange cargos
11:30:01  <Rubidium> can't really find how much yeast you need to make a litre of ethanol though... I guess it does not really matter, as long as you have enough time the yeast will convert and procreate
11:30:47  <nielsm> as long as you remove the ethanol as it produces, so you don't kill the yeast with it
11:42:58  <andythenorth> cargo label for yeast?
11:43:00  <andythenorth> YEST?
11:43:03  <andythenorth> YEAS?
11:43:07  <andythenorth> YST_?
11:46:29  <TrueBrain> as the 2 letters have to be somewhat unique to to be useful, YS__ :P
11:47:31  <Rubidium> JIST ;)
12:00:49  <FLHerne> YEAT?
12:01:14  <FLHerne> to make BRED of course
12:02:07  <andythenorth> yair
13:03:36  <nielsm> SACC (from Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
13:03:44  <nielsm> to be obtuse
13:21:02  <Eddi|zuHause> if a product says it contains "citric acid" (which is, almost everything) you can be sure that that doesn't come from actual lemons. it's produced by modified yeast
13:41:52  <andythenorth> more niche chemical chains :)
13:53:49  <nielsm> FLHerne: actually YEST to make BRED, if Yeast makes Bread then Yest makes Bred
14:01:20  <FLHerne> nielsm: but since when has OpenTTD been about consistency
14:01:28  <FLHerne> you're right though
