06:10:28 <Eddi|zuHause> kd5pbo: "killed" is an action of higher authority than the channel ops
06:10:56 <kd5pbo> Killed?
06:11:01 <kd5pbo> I was thinking kickban, actually.
06:11:08 <kd5pbo> What's killed?
06:11:42 <Eddi|zuHause> when the server kicks you
06:12:01 <kd5pbo> Oh.
06:12:11 <kd5pbo> How does that happen?

09:15:17 <Tefad> whoa i said something. in all caps. my bad.

09:56:53 <|Japa|> sfw
09:57:03 <edeca> Cool. Gotta check, some of the things I see online :P
09:57:09 <petern> don't change newgrfs in game
09:57:16 <|Japa|> didn't
09:57:46 <edeca> |Japa|: Completely unrelated but what buildings set are you using there? 'tis nice.
09:57:54 <|Japa|> I guess they got pissed with all the mail waiting in the station, so they just piled it all on
09:59:50 <|Japa|> I think it's a bug with cargodest
10:00:03 <|Japa|> edeca,
10:01:20 <edeca> |Japa|: Thanks.

10:04:14 <|Japa|> btw, the loading percentage loops when it reaches 255
10:05:14 <|Japa|> during that station stop, it went from 0% to 255% about 5 or 6 times
10:05:23 <petern> well yes
10:05:31 <petern> you don't need anything larger to store 100%
10:06:23 <|Japa|> unless they are using the indian loading style
10:06:43 <|Japa|> I was in a train carriage with 72 seats

10:41:41 <Elukka> o/
10:42:11 <Elukka> hmm
10:42:20 <Elukka> are there any scenarios for ECS?
10:46:26 <Eddi|zuHause> certainly
10:47:21 <Elukka> i couldnt find any
10:47:33 <Elukka> generated maps are ok but can get a bit samey
10:48:30 *** Yeggs-work has quit IRC
11:01:13 *** Vikthor has joined #openttd
11:02:35 <edeca> Hm, I really should try a scenario one of these days
11:03:31 <Elukka> i really should try making one
11:03:49 <Elukka> i tried googling but couldnt find any at all for ECS
11:04:00 <Gekz> we should have scenario competitions
11:04:12 <Gekz> like custom made 128x128 maps
11:04:25 <Gekz> where you have to make as much profit as possible over 100 years without cheating
11:05:35 <Elukka> i'd like a competitive multiplayer mode
11:05:53 <Elukka> i like calm relaxing building as much as the next guy, but sometimes i want to be a robber baron and buy out my competitors
11:07:03 <edeca> Gekz: Sheesh, I don't play with anything smaller than 1024 ;)
11:07:47 <Elukka> are ECS scenarios some sort of well hidden secret or do they really not exist at all?
11:09:28 <edeca> Elukka: GOOGLE IT.
11:09:30 <edeca> Elukka:
11:09:44 <Elukka> i googled!
11:09:49 <Elukka> hmm
11:10:03 <edeca> Elukka: Well I found that using google for "openttd ecs scenarios" and it was number 4. There are more on tehre too.
11:10:16 <edeca> Elukka: Granted there aren't *hundreds* on that page, but it's a start :)
11:10:20 <Elukka> that doesnt look like ecs
11:10:35 <Elukka> i tried a default one and ended with default industries with kinda messed up ecs cargos
11:11:11 <Elukka> wait
11:11:12 <Elukka> there
11:11:14 <Elukka> yeah i'm maybe just blind
11:11:36 <edeca> :)
11:11:37 <Elukka> curiously, a google search for "ttd ecs scenarios" results in nothing"
11:12:35 <edeca> I'd love to know exactly how google works, it does seem a bit weird sometimes
11:12:49 <edeca> It definitely favours whole words (for good reason) but it does other crazy stuff too
11:15:00 <Elukka> it's something amazingly complicated
11:15:31 <petern> it's nearly impossible to search for symbols :p
11:16:04 <edeca> petern: Heh, yes. I love searching for code :)
11:18:01 <edeca> Is it my complete imagination or was there a patch for 'subsidiaries' at one point? i.e. you can have subcompanies, or when you buy out another company it becomes a subsidiary (easier to sell off all their rubbish)
11:18:06 <edeca> Or was that another game
11:18:11 <petern> there was
11:19:03 <edeca> Good, as long as I'm not going mad. Did it never expand into something useful?
11:19:11 <Elukka> i remember that from mini-in
11:19:15 <Elukka> never really had any use for it
11:19:49 <Elukka> by the way, you know what i love
11:20:06 <Elukka> how my stations work just like they have good presignal setups
11:20:10 <Elukka> by just spamming pbs
11:20:17 <edeca> Eww :)
11:20:22 <edeca> I still use pre-signals with PBS
11:20:55 *** Mortomes has quit IRC
11:21:17 <Elukka> i use them for my ro-ro stations
11:21:25 <Elukka> but with pbs i no longer need to make everything roro
11:23:49 <petern> pre-signals with PBS? uh huh
11:24:04 <petern> pretty pointless
11:25:11 <edeca> petern: Not in the same places :\
11:25:27 <edeca> petern: I mean, I use them rather than "spamming pbs"
11:25:46 <Elukka> in my basic stations
11:25:48 <Elukka> spamming pbs works!
11:25:51 <Elukka> it never gets stuck
11:25:58 <petern> it works for complicated stations too
11:26:00 <Elukka> unless the whole network is gridlocked or something
11:26:08 <edeca> Elukka: You got a screenshot?
11:26:10 <Elukka> sure
11:26:12 <Elukka> i just made one
11:26:19 <petern> edeca, you got a screenshot? heh
11:26:20 <Elukka> i was going to link it regardless :P
11:26:30 <edeca> petern: You want one? :)
11:26:38 <Elukka>
11:26:41 <Elukka> very simple
11:26:42 <Elukka> works very well
11:27:08 <petern> Elukka: too many signals
11:27:21 <edeca> Why did you leave the gap between the track crossover and the platforms?
11:27:27 * edeca wonders if that's necessary
11:27:29 <petern> it's not
11:27:38 <Elukka> yeah that's probably true
11:28:06 <Elukka> with 4 tracked networks, i just make a big X that crosses over all tracks
11:29:04 <edeca> Yeah, sometimes if there are 2 lines and 4 platforms I'll make 2 crossovers so that more than 1 train can approach a platform at once
11:29:19 <edeca> I need to read up on one-way PBS though, I don't quite understand it
11:30:25 <Elukka> its PBS, it just works only one way
11:30:37 <Elukka> i use it right after and before stations to make sure trains get on the right track
11:30:42 <Elukka> and in some junctions
11:30:51 <edeca> Eh, I just never find trains get on the wrong track.
11:30:55 <edeca> Perhaps my networks are too simple :)
11:33:03 <Elukka> i try to keep things reasonably simple
11:33:09 <Elukka> but more complexity is needed the higher the capacity
11:34:30 <Elukka> this is my current game
11:34:33 <Elukka> well, with a friend
11:34:33 <Elukka>
11:34:42 <Elukka> yay for cargodest
11:34:44 *** roboboy has quit IRC
11:34:48 <edeca> Well I never had a problem until I started playing with the north american set, which actually takes hills into account. And hills really slow stuff down.
11:35:16 <Elukka> i use uk set or us set depending on what i feel like
11:35:32 *** TinoDidriksen has quit IRC
11:36:02 <Elukka> that 4 platform station on the left really needs more platforms
11:36:19 <Elukka> the whole track between the two towns got clogged back when it was double track :D
11:36:51 <Elukka> it'd be lovely if you could have 2 tracks on one tile..
11:51:07 <Elukka> generating 2048x2048 maps with ecs kinda takes some time :D
11:52:26 <Elukka> huh, it actually only took about 2 minutes this time
11:52:36 <edeca> It normally takes about a minute on my PC I think
11:52:41 <edeca> Is it multi-threaded?
11:52:52 * edeca wonders how long it will take on his new quad core PC
11:53:05 <Elukka> core 2 duo e6600
11:53:24 <edeca> Meh I've got a worse processor than that right now.

11:55:44 <edeca> @seen yorick
11:55:44 <DorpsGek> edeca: yorick was last seen in #openttd 1 day, 22 hours, 42 minutes, and 45 seconds ago: <yorick> now who translated "manually" with "handleiding" in the dutch translation :/
11:55:57 <edeca> Yexo: Thanks.
11:56:18 <edeca> Yexo: AdmiralAI started build rails for me at last, but there are still loads of abandoned stations over the map :)
11:56:39 <Yexo> I'm working on it
11:56:58 <Yexo> but fixing the save/load code has priority, and that takes a lot of time
11:57:18 <edeca> Ah, cool! Well thanks, it works really well now anyway.
11:57:25 <Elukka> aww
11:57:36 <Elukka> cs railroad tracks dont like the alpine climate
11:57:45 <Elukka> it incorrectly shows the arctic grass
11:58:10 <planetmaker> Elukka: that's an "error" which currently is very hard to fix.
11:58:30 <planetmaker> Because AFAIK rail sprites include the ground which they're built upon.
11:58:41 <Elukka> alpine set provides a grf which fixes it, but only for the default track it seems
11:58:46 <planetmaker> the more knowledgable people may correct me there.
11:59:13 <edeca> I'd often wondered that, same way that bridges have the rail or road on them too.
11:59:15 <planetmaker> Elukka: yes... but even then it looks odd for the tracks in diagonal directions.
11:59:25 <planetmaker> edeca: same there, yes...
12:00:08 <planetmaker> afaik there's petern working on un-bundling those two things. No idea about the status and its priority, though.
12:00:20 <Elukka> the diagonal seems fine except it melts the snow around it if its only partial snow
12:00:36 * edeca throws sweets at petern
12:00:49 <Rubidium> edeca: don't hurt him!
12:00:55 <planetmaker> hm... right. Might be that it looks funny for maglev sprites. I just recall a game where we have both
12:01:02 <Elukka> is there a way i could modify the cs rail set for myself, or is it a huge hassle?
12:01:30 <planetmaker> Elukka: probably the answer depends upon your knowledge of both, grf coding and grf drawing.
12:01:37 <Elukka> right
12:01:47 <Elukka> my knowledge in both is zero, so i think i'll make do with what i have
12:02:27 <planetmaker> :) You might make an effort though. Should be one of the easier grf tasks (I've never done any grf creation / modding though - so it might be a wildly inaccurate guess)
12:03:28 <Elukka> well, i dont even have any idea how to get into the grf files
12:03:32 <planetmaker> There's a bunch of knowledgable and helpful people out there which can advise you, if you have a particular problem with something along the path.
12:03:40 <planetmaker> grfcodec :)
12:03:54 <petern> hmm?
12:05:10 <Elukka> i think i'll just make do now
12:05:12 <Elukka> lazy etc
12:05:28 <Elukka> it doesnt look that bad - the grass can as well be a little less green around the tracks
12:07:36 <Elukka> a completely unrelated question... where do people get heightmaps from?
12:09:50 <Elukka> blagh, stolen trees dont work in alpine either... i like the snow but i think i'll just move back to temperate

12:44:45 <Gekz> lol
12:44:55 <Gekz> dihedral: you dont hate me as much as you think you do
12:46:06 <dihedral> who is talking about 'hate'?
12:46:25 <dihedral> i never mentioned the word hate when speaking of ignore lists (or the nicks on it)
12:46:38 <dihedral> they are just ruddy annoying :-P
12:46:42 <Gekz> lol.
12:47:50 <planetmaker> dihedral: easily solvable by using the same client and an rsync upon login to a central server :)
12:48:41 <dihedral> yes - good idea
12:49:55 *** davis- has joined #openttd
12:50:02 <dihedral> xchat allows for scripts to be executed, perhaps i'll just do that
12:50:30 <planetmaker> but maybe something like foxmarks for bookmarks of FF exists for your chat client already :)
12:50:53 <dihedral> doubt it
12:51:02 <planetmaker> me too :D
12:54:00 <thingwath> well, I think that having irssi in screen somewhere is a better solution... :-) (if possible, of course)
12:54:27 <dihedral> uh - a module for the bouncer
12:54:36 <dihedral> that'd be a perfect solution

13:20:52 <xerxesdaphat> hi -- anybody here who could help me with an NFO-related question?
13:21:06 *** Vikthor has joined #openttd
13:21:35 <petern> ask the question, don't ask to ask
13:22:08 <petern> although
13:22:12 <petern> looks like you did ask in the forums
13:22:21 <petern> so you might just wait for a reply, heh
13:22:36 <xerxesdaphat> yep, heh, thought i might get a different crowd here
13:22:58 <petern> anyway
13:23:03 <petern> you need to set all properties
13:23:17 <petern> otherwise it will use whatever it was set to originally
13:23:17 <xerxesdaphat> such as name, speed etc.?
13:23:26 <petern> yeah
13:23:44 <petern> don't rely on defaults
13:23:53 <xerxesdaphat> i got the impression from the tutorial that overwriting an existing sprite would at least give me the new graphics i supplied
13:24:09 <xerxesdaphat> which i get when replacing the SH125 -- but not with an ordinary diesel
13:25:51 <petern> you need to change the ID in your action 0 line too
13:26:38 <xerxesdaphat> oh, let's have a look at that
13:26:51 <petern> your snippet is for ID 0x16
13:27:21 <petern> theaction 3 is for ID 0x0F
13:27:43 <xerxesdaphat> brillian!

15:04:58 <edeca> Yeah, an operator, weird! I just googled :)
15:05:15 <petern> you only need parenthesis if you need the sizeof a type rather than a variable
15:06:49 <edeca> petern: What led you to the discovery?
15:06:53 <petern> nothing
15:06:58 <petern> i just thought i'd point it out

18:24:44 <el_en> does "Quickborn" sound german?
18:25:17 <frosch123> "born" is a usualy ending for town names
18:25:25 <frosch123> the beginning does not matter a lot
18:25:56 <el_en> well, that is an actual town name in Germany.
18:26:09 <el_en> it just sounds so englishy to me.
18:29:25 <Eddi|zuHause> "-born", in south germany more commonly "-brunn" comes from "Brunnen" (meaning a well)
18:31:06 <wollollo> Quick is actually a german word
18:31:25 <wollollo> erquicken, at least, occurs quite a bit in older german
18:31:39 <wollollo> (I've com across it reading Goethe)
18:32:34 <Eddi|zuHause> i've never seen "quick" standing on its own
18:33:05 <Eddi|zuHause> and in "erquicken", it has nothing to do with the english meaning of "quick"
18:33:06 <Sacro> Eddi|zuHause: to a german it's fine
18:33:21 <Sacro> to a brit... well...
18:33:36 <Sacro> hershaven requires a noun ;)
18:35:37 <Eddi|zuHause> but the etymology of town names is often quite difficult to unravel, and may have completely different meanings
18:36:51 <Sacro> well yes
18:37:09 <thingwath> sometimes even impossible
18:37:34 * Sacro creates a town called Fraurasiert
18:37:38 <Sacro> seems fine to me
18:38:11 <Sacro> or perhaps Ihrrasiert
18:38:25 <Eddi|zuHause> for example, there is a plant called "Quecke" (
18:38:58 <Eddi|zuHause> the same word base appears in "Quecksilber" (mercury)
18:39:57 <Eddi|zuHause> link above is wrong:
18:42:20 <el_en> we had the most interesting repeat-after-the-CD sentence on spanish course the other day; something like "¿En Granada están muchos gitanos?"
18:43:48 *** |Jeroen| has joined #openttd
18:45:14 <el_en> someone might claim that's not an entirely appropriate question in most circumstances.
18:47:32 <Eddi|zuHause> what circumstances do you mean?
18:47:43 <goodger> gitanos meaning what?
18:47:55 <el_en> goodger: gypsies
18:47:57 <Eddi|zuHause> english term would be "gypsies"
18:48:05 <Eddi|zuHause> german "Zigeuner"
18:48:08 <goodger> ah.
18:51:34 <goodger> are you meant to be tested on your knowledge of gypsy density in Granada or just the ability to understand the question?
18:52:23 <el_en> it was about the fact that correct intonation makes the difference between a question and a statement.
18:52:25 *** Roest has joined #openttd
18:54:39 <el_en> (which is important to remind us about, because in finnish rising intonation is not required nor even desirable when expressing questions.)
18:55:55 <Eddi|zuHause> common problem of languages which have the same word order in questions and in statements
18:57:38 <Eddi|zuHause> german switches the subject and the predicate in questions
18:58:20 <Eddi|zuHause> french also has these inversion questions, but more commonly they just prepend the statement with "est-ce que" (which, funnily, is in itself an inversion question)
19:00:07 <Eddi|zuHause> in german, raising your intonation in questions in german is mainly a difference if you meant the question rhethorically or not
19:00:16 *** Roest has quit IRC
19:01:09 <el_en> finnish adds -ko/-kö suffix to either the verb or some other word, and also word order is adjusted.
19:01:56 *** Zuu has joined #openttd
19:02:06 <Prof_Frink> English does what the hell it wants.
19:03:20 <Eddi|zuHause> "either the verb or some other words"... sounds very DaleStanish ;)
19:03:25 <Elukka> not all questions have ko/k though
19:03:32 <Eddi|zuHause> or something. :p
19:03:48 <el_en> Elukka: not if there's a real interrogative pronoun.
19:05:02 <glx> 'viens-tu ce soir ?' and 'tu viens ce soir ?' are both valid but the second one requires an intonation rise
19:05:35 <Elukka> also i made this
19:05:36 <Elukka>
19:05:39 <Elukka> ok the terrain is mostly random
19:05:42 <Eddi|zuHause> very similar in german, glx.
19:06:09 <Elukka> i think there are 10 cargo types on those little islands to transpot
19:06:18 <Elukka> provided i understood the tourists centre correctly..

19:47:12 <frosch123> yes
19:47:17 <Elukka> sometimes, time appears to slow down in school
19:47:38 <frosch123> but I got tired of that FS#UserNotAbleToUseFS stuff
19:47:43 <Elukka> we should call this scholastic time dilation
19:48:42 <OwenS> Interestingl the effect seems to decrease the further you go through education :P
19:49:16 <Zuu> el_en: Still need a Swede? And for what purpose?
19:49:36 <Elukka> owen, the interest factor has to be taken into account
19:49:53 <Wolf01> that's because at later years you do anything not related to school instead of study
19:50:05 <petern> frosch123, i only did that if it was a bug 'reported' on IRC as 'that bug i mentioned the other day'
19:50:35 <Wolf01> that was me
19:50:37 <Wolf01> XD
19:50:47 <OwenS> In later years you do less of the stuff you dislike you mean :p
19:52:49 <el_en> Zuu: i assume "apelsin läskedryck" should be written without a space? am i correct?
19:54:08 <Zuu> Yep, there shouldn't be a space there.
19:55:27 <el_en> I'm writing a complaint to a finnish drink manufacturer about extra spaces.
19:55:37 <el_en> in the labels.
19:55:56 <Zuu> You are from finland?
19:56:21 <el_en> I sure am.
19:56:27 <Eddi|zuHause> that is not exactly a new information
19:57:26 <thingwath> complaints about grammar...
19:58:47 *** RS-SM has joined #openttd
19:58:57 <thingwath> in fact, I complained about bad grammar on signs in our local shop few months ago, and they even fixed it :) (when they finally understood what I mean)
19:59:38 <Zuu> Putting in an extra space between combined words is a pretty common mistake in swedish, as there should be a space in the english counter part of the combined word.
20:00:49 <el_en> and is also common in finnish, but still wrong.
20:01:32 <el_en> i think finnish and swedish have quite similar rules about what should be written with and without a space.
20:05:24 *** mikl has quit IRC
20:06:16 <goodger> "counterpart" should be written without one, for instance
20:07:13 <el_en> how wrong would "counter-part" be?
20:07:52 <Zuu> el_en: Probably as worng as using a '-' in our languages where there should be no space.

20:47:14 <SmoovTruck> about the NoAI computer players available... RandomAI... is that the name of the AI, or does that pick one of the AI's at random?
20:47:48 <Wolf01> who knows?
20:48:01 <SmoovTruck> somebody here, which is why I ask here.:P
20:48:10 <Wolf01> the second :P
20:48:15 <Yexo> it picks one of the available AIs at random
20:48:35 <Yexo> you could have seen that by clicking on it and noticing there were no description/author/version in the lower box :p
20:49:07 <Wolf01> I think you should add it a random description to confuse people a little more
20:49:10 <SmoovTruck> okgood.:)
20:49:38 <Yexo> author: someone
20:49:44 <Yexo> version: > 0
20:49:47 <Zuu> Even better, someone should make an AI that is named RandomAI, that picks actions totaly on random :-)
20:50:11 <SmoovTruck> well, I've had 3rd party addons in other games that looked like that, thinking it would pick at random, when someone just made it the name and it was its own AI
20:50:54 <Zuu> Given that the dialog is named AI Settings, AI could possible be removed from "RandomAI".
20:51:08 <SmoovTruck> can we set global defaults on them? (instead of having to go through every player and set RandomAI to the same new date, for instance... just globally set RandomAI to always use 1000 days to begin)
20:51:36 <SmoovTruck> maybe lowercase it too, so it doesn't look like the name of an AI
20:51:47 <Wolf01> I think I'll make an AI which terraforms and add random trackbits around your properties... I might call it LamerAI, just to simulate multiplayer morons on singleplayer :P
20:51:57 <Zuu> You can click on a value to set it in an edit box on most things in OpenTTD that has increase/decrease buttons.
20:52:47 <SmoovTruck> perhaps a DoofusAI which never cleans up its mistakes, leaving stray track-bits where it overshot laying the route.... (seeing players do that always annoys me. :) )
20:52:53 <Zuu> Which should reduce some of your clickings but is sure not the answer to your question.
20:53:13 <SmoovTruck> Zuu, yes, but that doesn't seem to do it globally, only for #3, for instance
20:53:20 <SmoovTruck> like, some AI defaults
20:53:33 <Zuu> Yes that is still only local for that AI.
20:53:44 <Yexo> I can't think of a clean way to implement per-AI player-settable defaults
20:53:51 <SmoovTruck> I do like the new AI/GRF downloader in the nightly tho... very nice
20:53:51 <Yexo> and I don't they are really needed either
20:54:01 <Yexo> Ais can set defaults per difficulty level
20:54:23 <SmoovTruck> well, they would be needed in the case if RandomAI, if it picks one at random, what settings is the picked AI going to use?
20:54:28 <SmoovTruck> if=of
20:54:38 <Yexo> they'll use the default settings
20:54:50 <SmoovTruck> right...
20:55:07 <SmoovTruck> which can be set, where?
20:55:09 <SmoovTruck> :)
20:55:20 <Yexo> default values are specified by the AI, not by the user
20:55:33 <Zuu> Still based on difficulty. Problem for players is to know how AI settings are affected by difficulty.
20:55:38 <Yexo> if you don't want to use the default settings, don't specify random as AI
20:55:54 <SmoovTruck> which is where we should be able to set user-defaults...
20:56:19 <Yexo> Zuu: why is that a problem? you can only change AI settings on the custom difficulty level
20:56:33 <Yexo> if you change a setting on a non-custom level, the difficulty level will be set to custom
20:56:57 <Zuu> Yexo: It is a problem to the players that they don't know which AI specific settings that are affected by the difficulty.
20:57:18 <SmoovTruck> that's silly, only being able to choose one way or the other... either, I can have AI's picked at random with default settings, or computer player #1, will always be the same AI, with non-default settings...
20:57:20 <Zuu> If they want to control things on the level SmoovTruck is trying to do.
20:57:43 <SmoovTruck> screw the difficulty level... it is always on custom when I play anyways
20:59:09 <SmoovTruck> one AI may be better than another AI, and being able to configure them individually, so the AI always uses that configuration if it is selected, may help to balance out a strong and weak AI
21:00:58 <Yexo> SmoovTruck: if you want to set default values to desperate, just edit the info.nut of the AIs

21:03:54 *** Dred_furst` has joined #openttd
21:03:59 <SmoovTruck> can always do that, but if we're gonna have an AI GUI, and have all that space in the configure window, which so far, all I've seen in there is # of days to start, then should put other common settings specific to the AI in there too... non-experimental stuff, defined by the AI
21:04:43 <SmoovTruck> like, if an AI is made, where you can configure the ratio of road vehicles to trains being created, or if you want to set the AI to only build normal rails, etc etc
21:04:55 *** KritiK has joined #openttd
21:04:56 <Zuu> Try AdmiralAI
21:04:58 <Yexo> SmoovTruck: it's up to the Ais to specify those settings
21:05:03 <SmoovTruck> I know even tho NoAI made trunk now, it is still a work in progress
21:05:04 <Yexo> admiralAI has like 8 settings
21:05:13 <SmoovTruck> I'm still going through it
21:05:29 <Yexo> convoy has an aggressive setting
21:05:50 <Yexo> and pathzilla has a planning speed and an agressive setting
21:06:10 <SmoovTruck> Yexo... yeah, that's exactly what I mean, but as far as I can tell, I can only set that per-instance...
21:07:08 <Yexo> that's right, and as I said, I don't see the need to set that per-AI instead of per-instance
21:07:10 <SmoovTruck> perhaps something like having Random, pick a random preset... or pick a random AI, and then pick a random preset after the AI selection, or something
21:07:25 <Yexo> if someone else wants to write a patch to implement it in a clean way, feel free
21:07:36 *** Dred_furst has quit IRC
21:08:10 <SmoovTruck> how do you not see the need for that?!

21:09:19 <SmoovTruck> yeah, I've been there trying to make patches for OpenTTD... and being a truck driver now just doesn't give me the time anymore to really get into that again like I want to... if I did, I'd get my chat and subsidies patches current again
21:09:34 <Zuu> Randomize the settings for random AIs I guess is not to hard. Depending a bit on if there should be a GUI setting to enable/disable randomization of the settings for the picked AI or not.
21:09:56 <Yexo> Zuu: already possible if the AI specifies that
21:10:06 <SmoovTruck> don't want to randomize them... want to configure specific AI's to a specific behavior
21:10:11 <Yexo> it can use flags=AICONFIG_RANDOM to get a random value if the user sets none
21:10:17 <SmoovTruck> via the gui
21:10:28 <Yexo> and it can use random_deviation to make sure the user can't set an exact value
21:10:43 <Zuu> Ok
21:11:01 <dihedral> SmoovTruck: via the gui?
21:11:03 <dihedral> why?
21:11:29 <Zuu> You could use a die to pick which AIs to use and then configure the AIs yourself :-)
21:11:37 <SmoovTruck> because it is there? ... best response I can give you is "Why not?"
21:11:51 <dihedral> why not is not a good answer
21:12:07 <dihedral> you have to go by answering the 'why' not the 'why not'
21:12:11 <Zuu> Also it is not there. As if it where, you could do it straight ahead?
21:12:11 <SmoovTruck> I've been talking about reasons why to do it for 20 minutes now... but nobody has offered much in the way of reasons why not to do it?
21:12:33 <SmoovTruck> have you been following the discussion? I _have_ been answering the 'why' for 20 minutes now
21:12:50 * dihedral goes to read the logs
21:13:29 <dihedral> well - actually i was more after the 'why do you want to use the gui' ;-D
21:13:33 <SmoovTruck> Zuu... if it was there, and I could do it straight ahead, we wouldn't be having this conversation
21:14:06 <Yexo> SmoovTruck: as I said, I'm not against it, but as I don't see the need for it I'm not going to implement it myself
21:14:07 *** doc has joined #openttd
21:14:11 <Zuu> But your argument for "why not" was that it is straight there.
21:14:33 <Yexo> if someone gives me a clean patch I'll have a look at it
21:14:39 <doc> is it just me or is it really hard to get transported goods above the mid 8x% level?
21:14:52 <SmoovTruck> ahh... >grins<... well, for one, the GUI would prevent me from putting in absurd settings... being able to just quickly make adjustments without having to exit...
21:15:08 <Yexo> doc: make sure you always have a vehicle waiting in the station and build a statue in the town
21:15:09 <doc> for example, I've got trains sitting in the station but they're not loading up goods
21:15:17 <frosch123> doc: with wagon speed limits and without statues it is quite hard
21:15:24 <SmoovTruck> gotta figure that the majority of people using the client, wouldn't be as comfortable with editing config files like we would be
21:15:24 <doc> really? a statue?!
21:15:30 <doc> how does that make any logical sense?
21:15:43 <doc> :)
21:15:44 <frosch123> it is permanent advertising
21:15:44 <dihedral> SmoovTruck, but where are most ai's run?
21:15:45 <worldemar> doc: sort of advertisement
21:15:55 <dihedral> singleplayer or multiplayer
21:15:57 <doc> mad
21:16:01 *** Lakie` is now known as Lakie
21:16:10 <Yexo> dihedral: singleplayer :)
21:16:19 <dihedral> Yexo... shhhh :-P
21:16:24 <doc> ok, statue it is!
21:16:28 <worldemar> i played openttd and made 91% rating without advertising and statues
21:16:32 <SmoovTruck> dihedral... well, probably in single-player... but when I ran a server, I would allow 1 or 2 companies to run an AI
21:16:46 <worldemar> just optimal station + good trains
21:16:48 <dihedral> again please
21:16:57 <dihedral> you allowed 1 or 2 companies to run an AI?
21:17:07 <dihedral> i.e. you did not start an ai on the server directly?
21:17:15 <SmoovTruck> yes, I allowed 1 or 2 companies to run an AI in multiplayer
21:17:19 <doc> worldemar: yeah, I'm having the problem with goods trains
21:17:34 <SmoovTruck> this was pre-NoAI
21:17:41 <dihedral> i was just thinking that!
21:17:44 <doc> although I probably have too many entry/exits for this station but in any case there are trains sitting in the station not being loaded
21:18:27 <Elukka> 91%? how can you get that high a rating anyway?
21:18:27 <SmoovTruck> well, I get tired of seeing basically the same thing all the time on the servers, I liked trying to run a server doing something different... think I was the only one at the time allowing 1 AI computer player
21:18:45 <dihedral> check out autopilot or ap+
21:18:49 <Elukka> i had 1-3 trains loading constantly on one of my stations and it didnt go above 70% something with a statue and advertising
21:18:54 <dihedral> they can run console commands for you
21:18:58 <worldemar> doc: keep in mind, if it is 1940's or 1950's and you just cannot buy good powerful and fast train, then you cannot make rating so high
21:19:04 <dihedral> and thus allow you to customise your server a wee bit more
21:19:33 <SmoovTruck> dihedral... I don't run a server anymore... I don't have reliable bandwidth on the road...
21:19:39 <frosch123> Elukka: transport the goods with 200 km/h, and without long loading times
21:19:39 <doc> worldemar: it's 2200 or so :)
21:19:48 <Elukka> uh
21:19:50 <frosch123> then you will get 99% rating
21:19:52 <worldemar> doc: maglev can do 100%
21:19:58 <Elukka> i thought full load helped
21:20:11 <Elukka> doesnt the rating go down when nothings loading and the goods go to waste?
21:20:34 <frosch123> yes, but it does also go down when the time from starting loading to delivery is too long
21:20:53 <frosch123> i.e. more shorter trains are better for rating
21:20:55 <Yexo> frosch123: was that changed recently?
21:21:06 <doc> worldemar: hmmm, I've got 1 exits/entries per 5 lane station and trains sitting in the station and now with statue it's up from 82% to 90%
21:21:07 <frosch123> what?
21:21:11 <doc> going to see what happens next month
21:21:19 <Yexo> but it does also go down when the time from starting loading to delivery is too long <- that
21:21:20 <SmoovTruck> oh, speaking of full load... had another question... was playing on another server briefly that had some industry grf's loaded... ECS I think? (destination industry would fill up sometimes and stop accepting cargo for a while)
21:21:36 <frosch123> Yexo: it is just the average train speed
21:21:44 <SmoovTruck> if I have a vehicle set to 'unload', will it wait at the station until it is fully unloaded, similarly to
21:21:49 <SmoovTruck> full load's behavior?
21:22:14 <Zuu> It will unload regardless if the cargo is accepted or not, as far as I know.
21:22:24 <worldemar> doc: 3 lane station with separate exits... or even separate lines. really, i better show you screenshot of my station with high ratings, but haven't savegame now to snap it :(
21:22:27 <SmoovTruck> hmm...
21:22:41 <Elukka> would be nice if it waited until it accepted again
21:22:54 <Elukka> the best solution though: dont try to jam everything into one factory
21:22:56 <SmoovTruck> a prototypical train would wait
21:23:25 <Zuu> You can use conditional orders to loop around the factory and visit it regulary untill the train is empty if you wish.
21:23:42 <Zuu> But probably better is to go to first factory and then if not empty go to another factory.
21:23:45 <SmoovTruck> nah, that wouldn't be prototypical
21:23:54 <SmoovTruck> that wouldn't be either
21:24:59 <Elukka> better than throwing the cargo to waste, though
21:25:10 <Yexo> frosch123: it's not average speed but max speed, so long loading times don't matter
21:25:21 <Yexo> economy.cpp line 1643 if you wonder
21:25:35 <Elukka> ...ok, why would a coal mine care how fast my trains go as long as i make timely deliveries?
21:25:57 <SmoovTruck> I can answer that. :)
21:26:09 <Elukka> you can?
21:26:10 <Zuu> Elukka: max speed being an approximation of time it takes for delivery perhaps.
21:26:34 <Elukka> isnt delivery time already watched for the actual payment?
21:26:40 <SmoovTruck> the longer the cargo is exposed to the elements, the less it is worth... clean cargo brings in more money, so the faster it can deliver, the higher grade it will be on delivery
21:27:02 <Elukka> so why not have it be dependent on actual delivery time?
21:27:07 <SmoovTruck> well, I'm a flatbed trucker now. :)
21:27:07 <doc> worldemar: thanks, yeah, I realised 3 lane was better but didn't have enough space for this specific station.
21:28:11 <SmoovTruck> and particularly at power stations, they're very dependent on timely deliveries
21:28:57 <doc> will increased ratings increase your income?
21:29:50 <SmoovTruck> might not be a bad idea, if it doesn't
21:29:50 <Rubidium> no
21:30:11 <doc> imo it should, given you're getting more of the produce to market?
21:30:11 <Rubidium> ratings will increase the amount of cargo that goes to your vehicles
21:30:17 <SmoovTruck> nothing major, but perhaps a 5-10% difference depending if the ratings are appalling or outstanding
21:30:36 <doc> ok, well, it went from 82% to 99% on one station
21:30:37 <Yexo> doc: indirectly it does, since higher rating -> more goods -> more income
21:30:43 <SmoovTruck> <Rubidium> ratings will increase the amount of cargo that goes to your vehicles <--- there is that too
21:31:01 <doc> Yexo: ok, cool, that's what I'd have expected. Ok, thanks
21:31:25 <Zuu> Yexo: Depends on if you had spend a lot to improve your service the last percent, then it might actually lower your mean income of that route.
21:31:37 <doc> now all I need to do is figure out how to shove a big station into a space where there's nowhere to fit a station
21:31:44 <doc> underground stations would be a nice idea :)
21:31:53 <Elukka> the answer is excessive terraforming
21:32:04 <Zuu> Well the income, won't be lowered but the proffit.
21:32:05 <doc> hmmm?
21:32:14 <SmoovTruck> a bi-level station like some RL passenger terminals?
21:32:27 <doc> I've got one factory creating 15,000 crates of goods a month but I can only ship out 55% :/
21:32:39 <doc> and that's with trains sitting in the station
21:32:57 *** StarLionIsaac has joined #openttd
21:33:04 <frosch123> Yexo: ok, seems like I mixed it up with payment
21:33:46 <SmoovTruck> Rubidium... I like what you guys did with the advanced options menu... very nicely done. :) looks so much better than the old patches menu
21:33:48 <Elukka> now for some mount&blade
21:33:53 <Elukka> i need to whack some medieval people with large axes
21:34:57 <SmoovTruck> doc... you could make an asymmetrical station... get one track in as far as you need to, then link the other platforms to the first one, further out where you have more room
21:35:57 <doc> SmoovTruck: it's kind of cheating though, isn't it? :/
21:36:05 <Zuu> And when the station spread (default = 12) becomes to small you can increase it in advanced settings.
21:36:05 <doc> not very realistic
21:36:42 <Zuu> Though I would love to play on a MP server with that setting set to maximum 12. 8 or even smaller would be nice.
21:37:07 <SmoovTruck> doc... no, not cheating... dropping a lone unused square inside just to increase catchement area, detached from the station, is cheating...
21:37:47 <doc> hehe
21:37:49 <SmoovTruck> and there is a realistic basis to it... there are a lot of loading areas that are offset for one reason or another
21:38:00 <Zuu> I onece played on a server that had station spread set to 4, that was quite a different challenge :)
21:38:10 <SmoovTruck> not ideal, but if you're at the point of just having to make it fit, prototype will do it
21:38:23 <doc> true
21:38:35 <doc> I want to be able to buy roads from competitors :/
21:38:59 <doc> or create a situation where I can destroy their roads if I create a route they can use
21:39:38 <doc> or even buy stations etc, it's annoying when they shove a station into the one spot you could expand into
21:39:45 <SmoovTruck> road waypoints would be nice to, to take the bridge instead of going over the track
21:40:01 <doc> yeah
21:40:16 <doc> that's why I like trams

21:41:12 <Rubidium> make a drive through road stop and set go via order
21:41:22 <Rubidium> there's your road waypoint
21:41:25 <SmoovTruck> have to look again... didn't notice any road waypoint building tools, but I wasn't looking for it so much
21:41:35 <SmoovTruck> oh, no, not what I had in mind...
21:42:28 <SmoovTruck> it is a problem when the game is set to not allow those on town-owned roads

21:52:00 <doc> what does it mean when looking at the local authority dialog and seeing a red dot beside your name? :)
21:52:44 *** xahodo has quit IRC
21:52:58 <Rubidium> probably that you've bribed the local authority and got caught
21:53:14 <angelo> that they get acne when they see you
21:53:17 <doc> *ahem*
21:53:18 <doc> yes :)
21:53:27 <doc> although I had the red dot before I got caught I think
21:54:16 <doc> trying to build a station in the middle of a city, even one to bring goods and passengers, is annoying and expensive in bribes. Realistic I suppose. :)
21:54:17 <Rubidium> oh, you've got the exclusive rights
21:54:47 <doc> nope, I wasn't even operating in the town while the cpu players were
21:56:28 <petern> red dot is exclusive rights
22:00:26 <doc> odd
22:00:45 <doc> ok, there's definitely another operator working in this town
22:00:55 <doc> might be time to update

22:23:39 <doc> how do you retrieve an autosaved game :/
22:24:14 <doc> seems autosave didn't do any more recent than my own save
22:24:20 <doc> unless I'm missing something?
22:24:55 <Wolf01> :O
22:25:05 <Zuu> autosaves are as most frequent every month.
22:25:15 <Zuu> Depends on your settings in Game Options.
22:25:35 <worldemar> Wolf01: what are they doeing?! 0_0
22:25:38 <doc> Zuu: yeah, and seems to not be caring about it when I try to reload the most recent savegame
22:26:51 <Zuu> Do you load the autosave in the top of list, or the one with last timestamp (looking in your filesystem) or the one with highest/lowest number?
22:27:30 <Zuu> Also you should see some red text in the statusbar at the bottom when it autosaves.
22:27:54 <Zuu> If your computer is slow enough it should lag a lot when it autosaves.
22:27:55 <doc> ah, wait, there's a separate autosave dir
22:27:58 <doc> thanks
22:28:05 <doc> it was in there
22:28:35 <Elukka> ECS spams silly amounts of fishing stuff
22:28:41 <Elukka> i'd rather it be a building on the shore :/
22:29:06 <Rubidium> Elukka: you enabled multiple industries per town...
22:29:15 *** smeding has quit IRC
22:29:17 <Elukka> that's... true
22:29:24 <worldemar> Elukka: can player see fishing area? is it marked by something?
22:29:27 <Elukka> that wasnt my screenshot though :P
22:29:41 <Elukka> how about fishery buildings?
22:30:40 <worldemar> fishery buildings... in ocean. not so realistic, but ottd has many unrealistic things
22:30:42 <doc> argh, this stupid road ownership!
22:30:51 <Elukka> how about the shore? :P
22:31:03 <doc> I can quite happily build a bridge for them, but no, instead I have to buy their entire company! :/
22:31:31 <worldemar> Elukka: best for me is to make tile with fish, and mark it as mmm "CityName's shore" for example
22:31:52 <Elukka> that could also work
22:32:23 <worldemar> mmm... tile may be animated
22:32:55 * worldemar dreams about swimming fish tile
22:33:17 <Elukka> it could use some building, though
22:33:22 <Elukka> it'd feel weird laying track to... fish
22:33:45 <Elukka> if it were really awesome you could have fisheries with their own fishing ships moving out to sea and coming back... but that'd be way too much effort
22:33:56 <worldemar> but placing a big building such as refinery...
22:34:21 <worldemar> we have ships, why roads to fish?
22:34:51 <Rubidium> trains are faster than ships...
22:34:52 <worldemar> or you mean track == route?
22:35:01 <worldemar> yes
22:35:07 <Elukka> i like ships
22:35:47 <Elukka> when i have practically infinite money, i rather use a combination of vehicles to get something from one shore to another rather than a huge bridge
22:35:55 <Elukka> looks better, is generally more realistic, still makes a profit
22:37:14 <worldemar> Rubidium: if i want to make train route i'll raise landscape as i do near oil rigs :)
22:37:32 <worldemar> raise, place rails, let train do it's job
22:38:00 <worldemar> but fish basically (as i think) should be oriented for ships
22:42:09 <worldemar> so silent... am i sayed something wrong?
22:42:22 <Elukka> i'm just tired :D
22:43:04 <Rubidium> then pause openttd and go to bed
22:43:25 <Elukka> i actually dotn have openttd running
22:43:35 <Elukka> i was playing mount&blade but it insisted on crashing
22:49:57 *** DephNet[Paul] has joined #openttd
22:51:36 <SmoovTruck> use helicopters for fishing
22:55:51 <Elukka> or hovercraft!
22:55:54 <Elukka> however
22:56:01 <Elukka> there is a risk your hovercraft may get full of eels
22:57:09 <janitor> do oil rigs ever close?
22:58:42 <Rubidium> they can
22:59:29 <janitor> they popped up like crazy in my current game
23:00:20 <janitor> i'm not asking for any support though, as i have no idea what i'm playing

23:26:25 <worldemar> Rubidium: but there is "loan interest"
23:27:02 <worldemar> but if i haven't loan and have positive balance...
23:27:52 <worldemar> example: buying an AI and selling his trains, return all loan and have some $ ... hmm
23:29:22 * worldemar gave up translating "my bad"
23:33:23 <doc> is there a way to have trams use a station in parallel?
23:33:51 <doc> if I build two stations right beside each other for example they'll still just use one

23:37:19 <SmatZ> doc: I think the problem with RVs choosing roadstops far-from-optimally is a reported bug
23:37:53 <SmatZ> doc: have a look at some openttdcoop games :)
23:38:01 <SmatZ> sometimes it just works ;)
23:39:50 <doc> SmatZ: ok, cool, thanks
23:41:15 <worldemar> one station can "spread", so it's possible to build two different planforms owned by one station, parallel usage may be made by pre-signals
23:41:29 <worldemar> s/plan/plat/
23:41:48 <worldemar> by default, only 12 squares

23:49:31 <worldemar> they dosen't work as pre-
23:49:39 <worldemar> or does?
23:49:48 <janitor> don't
23:49:52 <janitor> or do
23:49:54 <janitor> ;)
23:50:11 <worldemar> can tey help to split one-road traffic to two roads...
23:50:26 <worldemar> hmmm...
23:51:20 <worldemar> and: if ships will not be able to pass one through another, we need pre-signals for canals >_<
23:54:55 <janitor> no, we need proper pathfinding
23:55:12 <janitor> pre-signals is just a hack
