06:12:25  <Afdal> Hay guise, I'm looking for some inspiration on branching off a main track line into a drop station and a secondary cargo pickup station
06:12:29  <Afdal> both at the same industry
06:13:03  <Afdal> What would you say are some of the best examples of this in an openttdcoop game
06:18:52  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> typically you don't just branch off a mainline into a station
06:18:58  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> you make a hub
06:19:23  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> from that hub you pull a line to your main station
06:19:38  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> be it drop or secondary pickup
06:20:26  <Afdal> I usually avoid making hubs in the openttdcoop sense because I'm obsessed with my high-speed merges :3
06:20:39  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> a BBH too, since it'll be a high throughput line usually
06:21:03  <Afdal> My merging zones and forking zones are usually kept separate because high-speed merges take up a lot of space
06:21:49  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> you can just make two one-way hubs then
06:21:55  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> one in one out
06:22:51  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> I personally really like one-way circular networks
06:23:13  <Afdal> yeah a one-way circular network is actually what I have in mind as I'm describing what I'm looking for here
06:23:49  <Afdal> where a line splits off from the main circle to service both the cargo drop station and a secondary cargo pickup station
06:24:32  <Afdal> It turns out I actually don't do this too often--usually I just keep different types of cargo on completely separate train lines
06:25:26  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> that should be pretty comfy then
06:25:27  <Afdal> I guess I've never really come up with a satisfying way to split all those train lines and remerge them efficiently
06:25:42  <Afdal> which is why I never attempt to do it
06:26:24  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker>
06:26:29  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> tons of ideas here
06:26:52  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> the list is prety outdated, but it still has nice examples
06:27:23  <Afdal> Yeah I've checked that out before
06:27:31  <Afdal> What does "SRNW" station stand for again
06:27:40  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> self regulating network
06:27:43  <Afdal> ah right
06:27:52  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker>
06:28:06  <Afdal> I'm thinking a combined type of station would address my issue pretty well here, but that feels like cheating :)
06:28:39  <Afdal> Specifically, one where the trains drop their junk off, refit for the other cargo type at depots, load up and leave
06:35:14  <Afdal> Oh I just realized there's a discord bot in here
06:35:18  <Afdal> pretty gross :(
06:35:25  <Afdal> thought that was the old in-game relay
06:35:42  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> some of us (me) are only on discord
06:36:00  <Afdal> you should get off Discord and come back to IRC :)
06:36:00  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> I fucking hate it tbh
06:36:07  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> i can't
06:36:14  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> discord killed all other apps
06:36:20  <Afdal> then get off it and go to Matrix -_-
06:36:26  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> my friends all use discord
06:36:36  <Afdal> Discord only has the power over you that you allow it to
06:36:48  <Afdal> Find the will, break free!
06:36:59  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> if you don't have friends you want to keep in contact with, maybe
06:37:09  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> they don't use anything else
06:37:39  <Afdal> I set down boundaries with my friends and they respect them because they enjoy my friendship
06:38:46  <Afdal> Come back to the light Clockworker -_-
06:39:23  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> none of them forced me to use the thing
06:39:41  <coopdiscord> <Clockworker> I could just not talk to them, but I want to

06:43:02  <Afdal> I notice the public server game archives end at last fall
06:43:12  <Afdal> Are you guise still playin during these dark times?
08:07:20  <coopdiscord> <happpy> afdal this discord  it's the same as irc channel
08:07:24  <coopdiscord> <happpy> but beter
08:07:49  <Afdal> Pretty sure OFTC isn't a private corporation with a business model revolving around datamining ;y
08:08:37  <Afdal> Now you might make that argument about Matrix.  Though even then I think it's debatable.
08:09:27  <coopdiscord> <happpy> the discord is  good to have a  friends list
