14:39:12  <Happpy> Good thanks
14:40:09  <greeter> awesome. i'm trying to find the instructions for submitting a new map, since it seems like the server needs one
14:43:04  <Happpy> !info
14:43:04  <coopserver> Happpy: #openttdcoop - Public Server (, Version: r27951, date: Jan 01 2687, map size: 512x512, address:
14:43:32  <Happpy> Ok so maps is 512+512 and grf
14:43:51  <Happpy>
14:46:38  <greeter> thank you :-)
14:47:47  <Happpy> Np
14:50:06  <Happpy> Just copey the  own grf that's in the game  wich is the basic cost
14:50:34  <greeter> ok. i likely have those grfs, but i will double check before proceeding
14:51:00  <Happpy> Ok
14:53:26  <greeter> hmm 1.8.0 is probably not going to get me too far connecting to the server lol
15:03:17  <greeter> is that a nightly build?
15:04:07  <Happpy> r27951 so yes
15:04:36  <greeter> ah now i know where to begin lol thanks :-)
15:04:53  <Happpy> Np
15:05:31  * greeter begins compiling from source
15:23:06  <greeter> i want to make sure i can connect to the server before i do anything else
15:23:40  <Happpy> Yeah if you need help whive it let me no
15:24:39  <greeter> yeah i could use help finding the right openttd version lol. it's still giving me a version mismatch error
15:25:00  <Happpy> !dl
15:25:00  <coopserver> Happpy: !download lin|lin64|osx|ottdau|source|win32|win64|win9x
15:25:01  <coopserver> Happpy:
15:25:51  <greeter> thank you :-)
15:25:56  <greeter> oh i didn't have to compile anything lol
15:30:09  <Happpy>  Ok have you got it
15:30:26  <Happpy> You mite need this
15:30:30  <Happpy> !grf
15:30:30  <coopserver> Happpy:
15:31:08  <greeter> well i have all the newgrfs except DB set v0.82 and North American City Set
15:31:38  <greeter> oh i see now :-)
15:32:32  <Happpy> Just make a name folder in your openttd fonder  and name it newgrf
15:32:51  <Happpy> And port it in ther
15:34:05  <greeter> alright
15:34:36  <Happpy> To find the sever just do this
15:34:38  <Happpy> !ip
15:34:38  <coopserver> Happpy:
15:35:03  <Happpy> To get the pw do this
15:35:04  <planetmaker> all it needs is to upload an appropriate map somewhere where it can be downloaded
15:35:11  <planetmaker> !getsave
15:35:11  <coopserver> planetmaker: (getsave [Server ID or channel] <Http Url of savegame>) -- Downloads a savegame file over HTTP and saves it in the saves dir of the [specified] server

15:36:43  <coopserver> *** Game unpaused (number of players)
15:37:15  <greeter> wow that lag lol
15:38:20  <greeter> but it works :-) that's good
15:38:56  <coopserver> *** greeter has left the game (Leaving)
15:38:57  <coopserver> *** Game paused (number of players)
15:39:13  <greeter> i'm guessing it's laggy in part because there's hundreds of trains on the map?
15:40:00  <Happpy> Yeah we do lots ov train's
15:40:23  <greeter> lol i see :-)
15:40:55  <Happpy> We do a big  train network and lots ov train's
15:41:19  <Happpy> So some time it mite lag
15:44:22  <greeter> indeed. hmm reading the PDF about newgrfs actually from that link you posted earlier
15:51:42  <greeter> oh it seems my first try at generating a map used the newgrf for town names i made some time ago :-D
15:53:27  <Happpy> It dont mater about town names we do cargo more then pax
15:53:39  <Happpy> But nice
15:54:02  <greeter> ah so i'll probably want to readjust the number of towns vs industries
15:54:52  <Happpy> Yeah  i say 10 towns
15:55:58  <greeter> yeah there's far fewer with very low towns lol
15:57:47  <greeter> wow there's now tons of newgrfs in my list. i don't know which ones to add to the map :-S
15:58:15  <Happpy> He he
15:59:25  <greeter> oh that's an easy fix though XD
16:04:32  <greeter> is the typical start date still january 1, 1920?
16:08:09  <Happpy> That's for opentrdcoop welcome server map start date

16:08:17  <coopserver> Happpy: #openttdcoop - Public Server (, Version: r27951, date: Mar 02 2687, map size: 512x512, address:
16:08:45  <greeter> ah. so if i'm trying to make a map for the public server which start date should i use?
16:09:04  <Happpy> I think its  like 2145 or some thin like that
16:09:49  <Happpy> Planetmaker whats the map start on this server
16:16:44  <greeter> wow that PDF is funny in places
