00:25:39  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> i try to  get the train  so ther have to wate
00:25:56  <coopserver> <Djanxy> yeah, but where ?

00:33:03  <coopserver> <Djanxy> you got a couple of signals turned the wrong way
00:33:19  <coopserver> *** Djanxy has joined company #2
00:33:43  <coopserver> <Djanxy> first of all
00:34:33  <coopserver> <Djanxy> you don't want the entry signal from the overflow to look forward, but only backwards
00:34:42  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> k
00:35:41  <coopserver> <Djanxy> and then
00:36:01  <coopserver> <Djanxy> check "wrong way" sign
00:36:34  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> yep  fixs  that
00:37:44  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> k
00:37:49  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> nexs
00:37:52  <coopserver> <Djanxy> seems to work :D
00:37:56  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> k
00:37:58  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> thanks
00:38:20  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> i stillgot to  lern  it still

00:39:44  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> ar  wate its k  troy  has dun a new won
00:39:50  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> for the oil  pick up
00:40:28  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> whont a bout  the refinery
00:40:39  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> overflows
00:40:43  <coopserver> <Djanxy> that has the same thing, with the combo signal instead of entry
00:40:44  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> Djanxy:
00:41:30  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> is that  the won
00:41:36  <coopserver> <Djanxy> no, i changed it
00:41:43  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> k
00:42:44  <coopserver> <Djanxy> when it's a combo signal, as it was - then the entry signal from the overflow will turn green as soon as there's no train in the reverser
00:42:48  <coopserver> <Djanxy> it's the first signal
00:42:58  <coopserver> <Djanxy> or, second
00:43:20  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> k
00:43:22  <coopserver> <Djanxy> if you hold right clock on the signal panel, it tells you the name
00:43:28  <coopserver> <Djanxy> click*
00:44:21  <coopserver> <happy  train sport> i see  igot it  4

04:58:11  <StAbLE_MEECH> yoooooooooooOO!
04:58:20  <Hazzard> hi
04:58:21  <StAbLE_MEECH> SUP SYLF!
04:58:36  <Hazzard> :D
04:58:41  <Sylf> o_O
04:58:50  <StAbLE_MEECH> :D
04:58:56  <Hazzard> HEY sylf :D
04:59:34  <StAbLE_MEECH> oh so sad, nobody in game :(
04:59:45  <Hazzard> !players
04:59:45  <coopserver> Hazzard: The server is empty, noone is connected. Feel free to remedy this situation
05:03:23  <Hazzard> I'm playing this game called Factorio
05:03:33  <Hazzard> i keep getting killed by my own computer-controlled trains
05:05:15  <StAbLE_MEECH> hmm!
05:05:20  <StAbLE_MEECH> What's the game about?
05:05:39  <Hazzard> making factories and killing alienz
05:06:23  <StAbLE_MEECH> Well at least it has a linux counterpart
05:07:52  <StAbLE_MEECH> checking out now
05:11:18  <Hazzard> Its a fun game
05:11:31  <Hazzard> the programmers seem to know what they are doing unlike minecraft
05:11:59  <StAbLE_MEECH> looks mildly interesting
05:12:18  <StAbLE_MEECH> looks like I'd go about building the base with a lot of junk crap on the outside that the aliens could get
05:12:44  <StAbLE_MEECH> maybe they'd destroy that shit first before the real part of the factory
05:13:28  <StAbLE_MEECH> I think Minecraft got too big too fast, and they didn't know what to do
05:15:51  <StAbLE_MEECH> Can the trains on the tracks prevent the aleins from coming into the base?
05:16:09  <Hazzard> they can run over the aliens
05:16:30  <StAbLE_MEECH> would it be worth while to have the tracks on the outside of the factory?
05:16:41  <Hazzard> turrets and walls seem to be the most common way to protect the factory
05:16:52  <Hazzard> I haven't seen anyone do that but I think it could work
05:17:00  <StAbLE_MEECH> cool, i can only see a few things from the screenshots
05:17:57  <StAbLE_MEECH> looks kinda neat
05:18:14  <StAbLE_MEECH> can you play 2 player ipx / conncted internet game
05:18:14  <StAbLE_MEECH> ?
05:18:24  <Hazzard> They are working on that now
05:18:33  <StAbLE_MEECH> sweet
05:18:39  <StAbLE_MEECH> what about lan game?
05:18:44  <Hazzard> there are a few dsync errors but it seems like people are having fun with it
05:19:24  <Hazzard> I assume lan uses the same mechanism
05:19:25  <StAbLE_MEECH> I'll run a cat5 to your house :D
05:20:05  <StAbLE_MEECH> All about that base, bout that base, no alien!
05:20:22  <Hazzard> XD
05:21:44  <StAbLE_MEECH> You heard taht song? IT's pretty catchy
05:22:07  <Hazzard> Yeah
05:22:13  <StAbLE_MEECH> :D
05:22:38  <StAbLE_MEECH> I recently started to replay Sim City 2000
05:22:59  <Hazzard> Simcity games were great
05:23:01  <StAbLE_MEECH> and I'm so used to openttd here, I hate the road building mechanism now in SC
05:23:22  <StAbLE_MEECH> I.e. the only time you can build a bridge in the game is usually only over water
05:23:47  <StAbLE_MEECH> and there were a few games that I really wanna just drop in random bridges over valleys adn shit
05:24:06  <Hazzard> yeah, I mainly play(ed) SC4
05:24:18  <StAbLE_MEECH> its a shame soemone doesnt rebuild the game, and add a lot of neat things like that to it
05:24:27  <Hazzard> it's still going strong thanks to the mods
05:24:37  <StAbLE_MEECH> yeah, I looked at Simcity societys, those games looked pretty neat
05:25:02  <StAbLE_MEECH> I read some reviews about SC4, some people don't like the restrictions on the game, I.E. map size
05:25:03  <Hazzard> Simcity4 with mods is the best of any of the simcities imo
05:25:16  <Hazzard> sc5 is where everything went to shit
05:25:28  <Hazzard> aka "sc2013"
05:25:41  <StAbLE_MEECH> right, that game was a disaster
05:27:55  *** BiG_MEECH has joined #openttdcoop.stable
05:27:56  <Hazzard> hopefully one day they will make another good simcity game :P
05:28:09  <BiG_MEECH> yeah, i locked up
05:28:35  <BiG_MEECH> I commented that you would have thought they would have made a single player game that doesnt need to connect to the internet, but not them :D
05:29:08  <Hazzard> yeah
05:29:42  <Hazzard> the one major thing missing in sc4 is multiplayer
05:29:54  <Hazzard> sc5 multiplayer wasn't even worth having
05:29:59  <Hazzard> openttd-style multiplayer would be cool
05:32:06  *** BiG_MEECH_ has joined #openttdcoop.stable
05:32:12  <BiG_MEECH_> yay for wtf connection
05:33:12  <BiG_MEECH_> as I Was typing, im just impartial to SC2k, spent months playing that game, literally
05:33:30  <BiG_MEECH_> fucking sweet if you could mod it and then connect it to other cities you've made
05:33:42  *** StAbLE_MEECH has quit IRC
05:35:07  <Hazzard> hopefully one day they will release the source, like they did for the original simcity
05:35:21  <BiG_MEECH_> never know, did they do a lot of modding to that game?
05:35:36  <Hazzard> the original one?
05:35:37  <BiG_MEECH_> other than the disasters and more cities / sprites?
05:35:39  <BiG_MEECH_> yea
05:36:37  *** BiG_MEECH has quit IRC
05:36:48  <Hazzard> I don't think they did too much
05:37:08  <BiG_MEECH_> sure, I would have thought I would have read abotu it more if they did
05:37:08  <Hazzard> source is here now:
05:37:09  <Webster> Title: Changes - micropolis - Micropolis City Simulator - Google Project Hosting (at
05:37:58  <BiG_MEECH_> hi5
05:38:30  <Hazzard> \o
05:39:31  <BiG_MEECH_> I think it might be pretty easy to remake the game, just the behind the scenes coding where different zones want to work together might be totally wack
05:39:55  <BiG_MEECH_> I know for a fact the windows version I was playing on was coded differently than the dos version behind the scenes
05:41:06  <BiG_MEECH_> The one game I played on the windows version, I had residential taxes up to 15%, that would never have been possible in the dos game without everyone leaving
05:42:43  <Hazzard> sc4 was my first game and the only one I really played so that's the one i'm biased towards
05:43:16  <BiG_MEECH_> :D
05:43:28  <BiG_MEECH_> I don't think you'd want to go back
05:43:55  <BiG_MEECH_> I had SC2 for a long ass time, then I got the simcity classic, I found it almost unplayable xD
05:45:02  <Hazzard> Yup
05:52:53  <BiG_MEECH_> I almost wish ottd were a city building program
05:53:15  <BiG_MEECH_> I Think i could steal the sprites from the simcity 2000 game and import them into the cities :D
05:56:19  <Hazzard> probably could
05:57:12  <BiG_MEECH_> I kinda want to now :D
05:57:37  <BiG_MEECH_> but I know nothing about coding, and would have to use someones prebuilt cities file
05:58:01  <BiG_MEECH_> I can hijack sprites all day :D
05:58:23  <Hazzard> it wouldn't be strictly legal
05:59:13  <BiG_MEECH_> yup, it would be as bad as stolen trees :D
06:00:08  <Hazzard> who stole who's trees for that grf?
06:01:37  <BiG_MEECH_> no idea, but a name like stolen tree's you know it's illegal :D
06:01:51  <BiG_MEECH_> I blame the rampant theft around christmastime xD
06:02:34  <Hazzard> XD

21:46:48  <happy_> whont ar u doing
21:47:04  <happy_> dreck
21:49:42  <dreck> looking at silly (to me) nicknames uk locomotives had
21:50:18  <happy_> k
21:57:03  <dreck> happysport btw how would you like to ride on a Notworker? apparently someone thought Networker units were unreliable and at same time it was a bit too easy to imagine the E was swapped for an O
21:57:08  <dreck> :)

22:08:36  <dreck> happysport also I'm not surprised that a lot of these little 0-4-0T industrial steam locomotives often got called either a kettle or a pisspot ... considering their small boiler with large water tank over it .. and the low speed .. I guess I'm not surprised
22:09:16  * dreck imagines a kettle on axles
22:09:17  <dreck> :)
22:09:18  <happy_> yep true
22:10:24  <dreck> the funny thing tho is that industrial shuntings here was usually handled to big tender 0-6-0's
22:10:39  <dreck> with a few exceptions like fireless 0-4-0 for special industries
22:11:13  <happy_> yep
22:14:46  <dreck> heres one example happysport they could look a little comical with big boiler over small drivers but that was the point .. they'll shove 20 wagons out of the yard in one go without asking
22:15:37  <happy_> yep
22:15:40  <dreck> one common dieselization replacement for them tho would be eg EMD SW1200
22:17:03  <dreck> actually Santa Fe had one unique single diesel unit that was nicknamed Yard Goat .. it had a low 35mph gearing on a long C-C chassis .. but heh naturally it could move any loads between yards
22:17:17  <happy_> yep
22:17:41  <dreck> I never really understood the "everything but the kitchen sink" slang but mm
22:18:54  <dreck> hmm look at this, the br class 24-27 got called Rats because there was too many of them everywhere ... I wonder if that was really true
22:20:24  <happy_> mite  be
22:21:27  * dreck imagines a railroad "infesected" with too many rats running all over the place
22:21:30  <dreck> :P
22:21:43  <happy_> yep
22:24:36  <dreck> happysport on the other hand there are some well known diesel/electric names such as H-Bomb (too much exhaust in mushroom-like shape?) or Zinger (the zinnnnng sound from emu passing another train) etc
22:24:55  <happy_> yep
22:25:08  <dreck> and lack of power? call it a Razor Blade as thats all it could do ... bit crude humor
22:25:17  <happy_> true
22:26:31  <dreck> happysport btw there is one thing I did have some interest in tho...
22:26:54  <happy_> whonts  that
22:27:31  <dreck> LMS 4-6-0 "Crab" .. called that way because of the upward (to clear track gauge) pistons .. but also more officially because when working hard its front literally could rock back and forth that if it didn't have flanges it would had gone sideway!
22:27:54  <dreck> it was a quite strong mixed duty locomotive for some time tho naturally
22:28:13  <happy_> i see
22:28:54  <dreck> heres one example which shows the clear piston upslant
22:29:14  <happy_> yep
22:29:46  <dreck> its not visible on that model (due to the small size I imagine) but one magazine I got shows a photo of a metal foot stirrup below the piston ... apparently it was to let the engineer be able to reach the top of the piston to oil it around ^_^
22:30:27  <dreck> happysport one thing about the Crab locomotive that wasn't very welcomed by crews tho was....
22:31:02  <dreck> instead of the planned matching tender .. a standard tender from some other class was used instead and it was a few inches narrower than the cab on both sides .. so the cab itself could be a bit cold/wet during bad weathers :-s
22:32:10  <happy_> yep
22:32:32  <dreck> its a bit hard to see at first but if you look .. you can see the tender being much smaller than the cab compared to the non-Crab further away
22:34:29  <dreck> happy but anyway that aside, what do you think of THIS thing?
22:34:35  <happy_> yep
22:37:11  <dreck> for me...I looks so weird for anything to do with a steam locomotive (rather than "a can on axles" HEH!) but hmm .. I guess wartime measure is wartime measure so no comment :-s
22:37:58  <dreck> short story is Southern tried to make the biggest 0-6-0 they could within the smallest gauge restriction there was .. so that explains the strange flat sides
22:42:45  <happy_> yep
23:24:40  <dreck> happysport btw about steam...
23:25:22  <dreck> you might be surprised to know that russia's broad gauge network had too much clearance so some of their steam locomotives could get quite BIG...
23:25:41  <dreck> this was actually at least 17 feet tall .. look at yourself .. you're probably only close to 6 feet .. do the math :-s
23:27:02  <dreck> this was another photo I could find with some humans in it, you get the idea!
23:31:52  <dreck> (btw don't mind the title .. its a different numbering system in certain countries apparently...its really a 4-6-4 after all
23:33:27  <happy_> isee
23:50:35  <dreck> anyway was just kinda thinking...seeing the grf is relatively new I dunno if it would be fun to have a tropical map with pineapple10cc+opengfx-industries ..might have to recheck my zoom settings but mm could be fun to see them instead of that useless dumb "8BP" string
23:50:41  <dreck> but I'm just blabbing so don't mind me :P
23:56:09  <happy_> dreck  u got to chek this out
