09:37:37 *** kamnte has joined #openttd
09:37:42 *** kamnte is now known as kamnet
09:38:10 <kamnet> Good morning... I spoted a small error in opengfx+ landscape r19
09:43:29 <kamnet> Although it looks like it only appears on a map that was created using an earlier version of ChillCore's patchpack.
09:45:20 <kamnet> Oops, nevermind, its' a heightmap, not a scenario... hmmm.. I'll go bug ChillCore about it :D
09:47:47 <planetmaker> well. If you spot a bug, it'd be nice to report it in the appropriate bug tracker. I'll forget, if it's just in IRC ;-)
09:48:43 <dihedral> heh
09:49:40 <Rubidium> planetmaker: it's go in the bug tracker that's known as t=47622
09:51:47 <planetmaker> I'm afraid that is at the moment too far fetched to get the joke ;-)
09:52:15 <planetmaker> *too far fetched for me
09:52:47 <Rubidium> planetmaker: that 50+ page thread with bug reports about Chill's PP
09:53:10 <Rubidium> although it seems to be the new "MiniIN" when looking at its longevity
09:53:37 <kamnet> has there been a report about sprites on the edges of the seas changing when gridlines are disabled?
09:54:09 <Rubidium> in that thread? Or in general? (In either case I can't remember it)
09:54:45 *** Kurimus has joined #openttd
09:54:58 <kamnet> Well it's only happening when I use this specific heightmap. If I start a new game and the game generates the land on it's own, no issues. I'm thinking better to start with chill?
09:56:33 <Rubidium> given Chill's PP has a new height level thing I guess it might very well be related with that
09:57:05 <planetmaker> oh, that one :-)
09:57:25 <planetmaker> t as in topic ;-)
09:58:58 <Rubidium> it looks fine with clean trunk at all edges on a generate map
10:06:55 <kamnet> Yeah I bugged him aboutit :D
10:07:08 *** HerzogDeXtEr has joined #openttd
10:11:55 *** tokai|mdlx has joined #openttd
10:12:06 <planetmaker> well, did you test the steep slopes also in trunk with that newgrf, kamnet ?
10:12:49 *** HerzogDeXtEr1 has quit IRC
10:14:24 <Rubidium> it's borked in trunk as well
10:14:50 <planetmaker> I assumed so ;-)
10:15:04 <planetmaker> but I can't test now
10:15:34 <Rubidium> sprites "5908 / 5909" need Y-offset -8 instead of 0
10:16:35 <planetmaker> :-D
10:17:20 <planetmaker> besides missing no-grid support for roads and tracks, I guess there's a reason it's still only available as nightlies ;-)
10:17:30 <Rubidium> got to hate those dudes that added the sprite aligner and sprite picker ;)
10:17:56 *** tokai|noir has quit IRC
10:18:09 <planetmaker> yeah. really. Quite evil guys.
10:19:14 *** neli has quit IRC
10:20:05 <planetmaker> It didn't seem to show obviously when I tested, it seems ;-)
10:22:48 <kamnet> No, I didn't see it with steep slopes.
10:23:40 <kamnet> What kinda landscape goodies are you looking for, by the way?
10:24:35 <planetmaker> hm? you mean in general?
10:24:45 <kamnet> yes
10:25:20 <planetmaker> well... I've only a fuzzy idea ;-) - I'd add andy's wind mill as a first object for eye candy reasons
10:25:34 <dihedral> uh?
10:25:41 <dihedral> is there a picture of that?
10:26:11 <kamnet> as a NewObject?
10:26:59 <planetmaker> browse the FIRS repository ;-) - it's there, but not used.
10:27:17 <planetmaker> yeah, I think this landscape newgrf could contain also objects - as they're part of the landscape
10:27:30 <planetmaker> and it could possibly contain maybe a few (more) stones.
10:28:25 <kamnet> Wally said he was working on some. I thought about making some more stones myself. Apparently we all have rocks on the brains...
10:28:57 <planetmaker> :-P
10:29:45 <dihedral> that is some very nice art :-)
10:29:55 <planetmaker> Might as well add some harbour graphics or... dunno. Observation tower. Things like these.
10:30:41 *** Lakie has joined #openttd
10:34:08 <kamnet> Can we use the water/land edge tiles to build along the rivers to make them look nicer than flat, square edges?
10:34:31 *** DayDreamer has quit IRC
11:03:34 *** perk11 has joined #openttd
11:13:01 <kamnet> Oh, wait. THOSE steep slopes. Sorry, I didn't even notice that they were steepslopes. :P
11:13:10 <kamnet> I should be sleeping right now, but I'm not haha

11:41:51 <kamnet> Will do

11:56:25 <Mazur> A series of Dutch windmill types (grain/wood/water, etc.) might be pretty.
11:57:24 <planetmaker> yeah, quite ;-)
12:00:17 <Mazur> And a spanish mill, under that name, so that people learn not to use those in movies, etc., when they try and portray Dutch landscapes.

12:50:36 <SmatZ> new way of filling glass of beer :)
12:51:59 *** Fuco has joined #openttd
12:54:25 <dihedral> lol SmatZ
12:54:35 <dihedral> you probably want one of those machines, ey?
12:56:43 <SmatZ> :-)
12:56:54 <Terkhen> who wouldn't?
12:58:07 <V453000> thats ... interesting :D how does that work?
12:58:33 <planetmaker> sort-of one-way valve bottom
12:58:40 <V453000> I guess :)
12:59:05 <planetmaker> and a hydrostatic gauge
12:59:18 <V453000> I guess SmatZ would need such thing so he doesnt spend more time with opening beer than drinking it
12:59:24 <V453000> :P
12:59:57 <Rubidium> just drink it directly from the barrel
13:00:58 <planetmaker> I still vividly remember SmatZ' eyes when I told him to take along the (small) spare barrel from the r20k party :-P
13:01:35 <planetmaker> sometimes the small joys are the best :-)
13:06:03 *** andythenorth has joined #openttd
13:06:09 <andythenorth> I actually kind of like this one:
13:06:15 <SmatZ> :-D
13:06:17 <andythenorth> might turn disasters back on if that existed
13:06:27 <andythenorth> it would need an avalanche version though
13:06:38 <SmatZ> planetmaker: yeah, that was a great present, thank you again :-)
13:07:29 <planetmaker> it was (and would be again) the best I can do with it :-)
13:09:18 <V453000> pm: SMALL joys? :D :P
13:09:51 <V453000> having SmatZ get beer is not a small joy :)
13:11:47 <planetmaker> you make him sound like a drunkard - which is not my impression :-)
13:11:53 <Ammler> SmatZ: you need also to thank us, that we drunk so few beers in the party itself so that barrel wasn't needed :-P
13:12:18 *** neli has quit IRC
13:14:20 <dihedral> andythenorth, that is a nice disaster :-)
13:14:42 <dihedral> can disasters not be passed on to grfs?
13:14:55 <dihedral> so that a grf could introduce a disaster
13:15:33 <planetmaker> that's the idea. But someone needs to write a newgrf disaster framework. Best coupled to the console so that they can even be triggered externally
13:15:36 *** Fuco has joined #openttd
13:15:52 <planetmaker> (if they have an appropriate flag set, maybe)
13:16:13 <dihedral> triggering is easy
13:16:26 <dihedral> framework is hard :-P
13:16:31 <planetmaker> ^^
13:16:45 <dihedral> however, you could hand it over to an ai
13:16:52 <planetmaker> it first would need a decent concept
13:17:03 <dihedral> yeah
13:17:15 <planetmaker> nah, the AI should not be abused to that end. Rather an admin bot ;-)
13:17:26 <planetmaker> which then would be called 'scenario bot' or so
13:17:33 <dihedral> less admin bot as that is only available to a server
13:17:49 <dihedral> and the desaster ai could merely be a 'type' of ai
13:18:04 <dihedral> use parts of the framework
13:18:07 <dihedral> but not others
13:18:11 <dihedral> and have no costs
13:18:42 <planetmaker> I'd not call it AI. That sounds wrong ;-)
13:18:57 <planetmaker> but it might be semantics
13:19:35 <Ammler> you could call it god
13:19:40 *** glx has joined #openttd
13:19:40 *** ChanServ sets mode: +v glx
13:22:58 *** neli has joined #openttd
13:27:32 <dihedral> the advantage could be that such an disaster squirrel script would not be required to be present when loading a save
13:27:45 <dihedral> but i am not sure that would be desired
13:28:27 <Eddi|zuHause> i like the idea of a "scenario script"
13:28:49 <Eddi|zuHause> but squirrel based would probably make more sense than grf based
13:29:09 <planetmaker> well. both probably :-)
13:29:37 <planetmaker> The grf defines the disasters. The script can define when and where they happen
13:29:46 <planetmaker> To me it's a bit like two parts of the same problem
13:30:15 <planetmaker> a squirrel script cannot define the telepathic alien invader ufo, it needs a newgrf.
13:30:27 <planetmaker> But the script could tell it where to go and how many people to take from the town
13:30:38 <Eddi|zuHause> yes, but the immediate use of a "scenario script" is not only triggering disasters, but also things like tutorials and goal frameworks
13:31:05 <planetmaker> goal framework is again, broader than scenario script ;-)
13:31:11 <planetmaker> But that's why I say: it's two things
13:31:43 <Eddi|zuHause> hm, i don't think it's much broader. it repeatedly checks conditions like company value, and then triggers a victory screen
13:31:44 *** neli has quit IRC
13:31:59 <Eddi|zuHause> as in a dialog window...
13:32:09 <planetmaker> yeah, I guess it depends how one sees 'scenario script'
13:32:49 <planetmaker> and we all seem to agree in the larger, fuzzily defined goal ;-)
13:37:00 *** fanioz has joined #openttd
13:45:18 <__ln__> why don't i see OpenTTD at:
13:45:22 *** fanioz has quit IRC
13:49:13 <SmatZ> maybe it was scanned long time ago
13:49:22 <SmatZ> (I think it was)
13:53:37 <andythenorth> goal framework is barely larger than scenario script
13:54:25 <andythenorth> but the 'barely' could be troublesome :P
13:54:32 <andythenorth> e.g. does it get control over economy?
13:54:37 <andythenorth> over vehicle intro dates?
13:54:45 <andythenorth> over industry open / close
14:08:02 <Belugas> hello
14:09:36 <andythenorth> quak
14:09:37 <andythenorth> hmm
14:09:40 <andythenorth> wrong person :)
14:13:31 *** andythenorth has left #openttd
14:15:20 <Eddi|zuHause> <-- why do i love images like this so much?
14:17:58 <dihedral> uh yeah :-)
14:18:14 *** pugi has joined #openttd
14:19:25 <frosch123> what? steam and double stack wagons?
14:20:46 <frosch123> i thought buildnig such coaches would be far more modern
14:22:24 <peter1138> :)
14:24:26 <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: the first such wagons were pre-WWII, but only few models for the private railway "Lübeck-Büchener-Eisenbahn (LBE)", produced in Görlitz. the next series was for east german railways only, where they were continuously further developed. west germany only got the models after 1990, except the few LBE wagons.
14:26:37 <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: see
14:30:22 *** Kurimus has quit IRC
14:45:15 <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: what's particularly interesting about the LBE is that they used these wagons for push-pull service with steam engines already 1936
14:46:38 <frosch123> isn't it more interesting, why they are not used in the west later on?
14:46:55 *** fjb has joined #openttd
14:47:20 <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: the wikipedia article said something about 6 further prototypes in the west, but they weren't picked up for series production
14:48:11 <Eddi|zuHause> maybe licensing the production schemes from the Görlitz factory wasn't politically wanted...
14:48:19 <frosch123> yeah, but there is no hint like, adenauer banged his head at the low ceiling, so they were dropped for regular service
14:53:15 *** neli has joined #openttd
14:54:56 <frosch123> ouch...
14:55:42 *** Adambean has joined #openttd
14:56:35 *** fmauneko has joined #openttd
14:58:39 <frosch123> <- someone minds breaking any of these grfs?
14:59:24 *** BigDaveDev has joined #openttd
14:59:31 <Eddi|zuHause> grf version 1?!
14:59:54 <Eddi|zuHause> i thought even ttdp only loaded grf version >= 2
14:59:54 <frosch123> i guess they thought "grf version" means version of their grf
15:00:17 <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: the problem is, ottd does not do any checking of the version at all
15:00:27 <frosch123> so there are some grfs with wrong version, which just work
15:01:06 <Eddi|zuHause> we have broken malformatted grfs in the past...
15:01:23 <frosch123> but, now we even have them on bananas :)
15:01:27 <Eddi|zuHause> like combroads or newbridges

15:09:55 <JOHN-SHEPARD> hey
15:10:03 <JOHN-SHEPARD> i ssee people making a one block station
15:10:10 <JOHN-SHEPARD> then far away a full station
15:10:16 <JOHN-SHEPARD> but they are the same station
15:10:26 <frosch123> hold ctrl while building the station
15:10:26 <JOHN-SHEPARD> how is this done
15:10:57 <JOHN-SHEPARD> so i can make a station that is like a way point for stuff you want to carry?
15:10:58 <frosch123>
15:11:45 <frosch123> within station spread you can make quite big stations like that, which catch cargo from different spots
15:13:39 <JOHN-SHEPARD> ok
15:21:27 *** goblin has joined #openttd
15:25:34 <Rubidium> frosch123: maybe save that change for after 1.1 is branched?
15:27:06 <frosch123> i would rather prefer as fast as possible to get rid of those grfs
15:27:36 <frosch123> hmm, otoh, the version 0/1 check is not as important
15:27:46 <frosch123> but there should be a version < 8 check
15:28:59 <Rubidium> maybe we should still show NewGRFs with unknown/invalid versions, but not allow them to be added to lists: Can't add this NewGRF as it has an unsupported GRF version"
15:29:53 <Rubidium> otherwise we'll end up with maybe for bananas when NewGRF v8 gets introduced and the "stable" clients don't understand it, thus don't list it and people complain about the file being downloaded again and again
15:30:05 <frosch123> what do you when loading games?
15:30:09 <frosch123> +do
15:30:25 <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: deactivate them the same way as missing grfs
15:30:52 <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: well, but it should not consider them as compatible

19:08:30 <JOHN-SHEPARD_> my nick is great

19:09:09 <Belugas> it's in upper case. You're YELLING YOUR NAME
19:09:12 <JOHN-SHEPARD_> currently the cities i connect are not so far away

19:32:11 <Eddi|zuHause> i vote to autokick anybody who has more than 4 capital letters

19:32:32 <JOHN-SHEPARD_> if you are jalous of my nick then get capital letters yourself
19:32:37 * ZirconiumX thanks god I use ZirconiumX than OTTDmaster
19:33:01 <__ln__> ZirconiumX: that's not more than 4
19:33:03 <Eddi|zuHause> ZirconiumX: those are "exactly 4", not "more than 4"
19:33:42 <LordAro> John-Shepard_: not jealous, annoyed... also, <-- is how your nick should be
19:34:14 <andythenorth> JOHN-SHEPARD_: you appear to have used the full quota of capital letters for today. There are none left for the rest of us :(
19:34:14 <andythenorth> you will see that I am left only with small caps :(
19:34:29 <andythenorth> for example, you could give you capital A to me :o
19:34:34 <andythenorth> your /s
19:35:00 <andythenorth> and you could give your P to planetmaker
19:35:24 <planetmaker> nah, thank you ;-)
19:35:52 <ZirconiumX> JOHN-SHEPaRD_ I like, Andythenorth
19:36:03 <andythenorth> the D could go to dihedral

19:38:02 <JOHN_> but my nick never annoyed anyone before
19:38:14 <andythenorth> I can't find source in

19:39:16 *** ZirconiumX has quit IRC
19:39:43 <andythenorth> Hirundo: that looks like source for openttd.grf, unless I'm missing something....
19:40:01 <planetmaker> Hirundo: rather the website logo or so...
19:40:17 <Hirundo> oh sorry, I misread :)
19:40:21 <andythenorth> ;)
19:40:24 <LordAro> andythenorth: ?
19:41:21 <JOHN_> lol
19:42:10 <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: have you checked whether contains any graphics?
19:43:32 <Hirundo> That seems all html and py as far as I can see now
19:47:16 <andythenorth> ho hum
19:47:22 <andythenorth> seems familiar
19:47:30 <Alberth> JOHN_: ?
19:47:46 <andythenorth> I have been involved in building n websites where the graphics source goes astray...
19:48:35 <Eddi|zuHause> Hirundo: that seems like a major oversight to me...
19:48:59 <Eddi|zuHause> should definitely be brought to the attention of the responsible devs...

20:28:57 <Hirundo> hmm... is there a specific reason, why NPF and YAPF each have their own binary heap implementations?
20:30:01 <Rubidium> NPF one's isn't templated and KUDr didn't understand it because it isn't templated or something?
20:31:32 <Rubidium> but then, those that made the decision about YAPF aren't really active anymore
20:32:09 <Rubidium> and it was in the era that everything except the to-be-introduced YAPF was in pure C
20:34:57 <Hirundo> I was just looking through YAPF again, and it indeed is a ***

20:44:19 <andythenorth> if you do that enough you can write one beautiful final function

20:45:29 <Alberth> main<"1.0.5">(); :)
20:46:01 <andythenorth> I probably forgot to pass 'stuff' somewhere
20:46:16 <Alberth> nah, global data :)
20:46:22 <andythenorth> oh good
20:46:34 <andythenorth> or do can figure it out from context
20:46:34 <andythenorth> hmm
20:46:48 <andythenorth> context is a dangerously zope-y concept
20:46:48 <andythenorth> probably best that most of you have no idea what I mean
20:47:01 <Rubidium> fonsinchen: I think you should add some sort of legenda to show what the different coloured lines in the link statistics window means
20:48:39 <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: a "do_stuff" function makes for a great anti-pattern ;)
20:48:56 <Rubidium> as the bright green is close to both yellow and white colour wise, so it seems like they are somewhat related even though yellow and white seem to mean different things
20:49:20 *** valhallasw has joined #openttd
20:50:47 <fonsinchen> I see.

22:09:41 <__ln__> should i buy MS Office Professional 2010 for €69.00?
22:10:00 <Zuu> Do you have 2007?
22:10:13 <__ln__> No.
22:10:24 <__ln__> Nor any other previous version.
22:10:48 <Zuu> Then I would probably buy it as I bought 2007 for about the same price a year ago. :-)
22:10:59 <Zuu> or if it was 2 or 3 years ago.
22:11:00 <Wolf01> eh, pro for 69 is a big deal
22:11:18 * SmatZ whistles *openoffice* innocently
22:11:24 <Zuu> I guess it is the "big deal" for students.
22:11:41 * Rubidium whistles *libreoffice*
22:11:54 * Terkhen whistles *good night*
22:12:01 <Wolf01> here for the home and student version you pay about 80, or 30 if the university provide it
22:12:03 <Rubidium> good night :)
22:12:03 <SmatZ> :-)
22:12:06 <SmatZ> good night Terkhen
22:12:12 <Wolf01> nini Terkhen
22:12:45 <Zuu> 2007 + 2010 have the semi-latex formula editor which is nice if you have to write many formulas.
22:13:39 <Wolf01> 2007 and 2010 have too manu redundant menu items
22:13:49 <Rubidium> even then LaTeX + VCS are much better for writing something consistent
22:14:16 <Zuu> Possible, especially if you can rule your own environment.
22:15:07 <andythenorth> goof night
22:15:12 <andythenorth> oof
22:15:17 <Ammler> doof night
22:15:27 *** ar3k has joined #openttd
22:15:31 <Rubidium> I still pity the guys that had to merge some 20 word documents into a single consistent document before sending it to be printed
22:15:32 <Wolf01> night andythenorth
22:15:44 <Zuu> In many cases it comes down to what will work in cooperation with other people. And then usually it is not "the best" solution that works best.
22:15:50 *** andythenorth has left #openttd
22:16:17 <SmatZ> I use pdfcreator for merning documents...
22:16:30 <SmatZ> would be nice to know tex though
22:16:45 <Rubidium> SmatZ: does that keep consistent page numbering? Does that make a table of contents?
22:16:46 <SmatZ> but you can't expect non-programmers to use it I guess
22:16:54 <__ln__> LaTeX has some kind of a learning curve, and as far as I understand customising the page layout is non-trivial.
22:16:59 <Rubidium> does that make sure each chapter starts on an odd page?
22:17:03 <Wolf01> does that use the same style?
22:17:04 <SmatZ> Rubidium: nope, it just merges the pages, so they can be printed as 1 document :)
22:18:25 <Zuu> If you have any problem with spelling, MS office products also comes with better language tools than eg open office. Something that I value, but might be a non-issue for other people.
22:18:25 <Rubidium> with LaTeX and Subversion the act of getting a single consistent document took only a few minutes of "compiling"
22:19:53 <Zuu> However, it's true LaTeX and the usage of simple text files sure does have many adventages.
22:20:17 <__ln__> Zuu: Not that I have any problems with spelling, but there is no proofreading for Finnish at all in OpenOffice out-of-the-box.
22:21:39 <Zuu> Not sure if proofreading is the same as spell checker, but at least the Swedish one is of lower quality than in ms office.
22:22:05 <Rubidium> you can just load the latex source into office (as plain text file)
22:22:07 <__ln__> well m'kay, at least i meant the same as spell checker.
22:22:54 <Zuu> Rubidium: Sure, I do that from time to time with non-office texts just to be on the sure side.
22:23:30 <Eddi|zuHause> latex is great if you find a decent template
