07:00:40 * planetmaker ponders and OpenGFX+ houses which - for a starter - only modifies the default properties of houses without giving them new graphics
07:00:51 <planetmaker> so that they then might accept food or coal or alike

07:34:56 <Terkhen> hmm... will the cargos be configurable?
07:35:24 <andythenorth> params?
07:35:44 <andythenorth> hmm
07:36:06 * andythenorth ponders a town newgrf that does something with acceptance of base set houses
07:36:54 <planetmaker> Terkhen: partially that's possible. Fully... it's missing gui support on the openttd side
07:37:12 <planetmaker> dword2label ;-)
07:37:25 <planetmaker> enter the label as decimal number and it's feasible
07:38:14 <Terkhen> hmmm... so the missing part is converting text such as (COAL) into something the NewGRF can understand? still it would require users to know about cargo labels
07:38:53 <planetmaker> Terkhen: yes, it would. But that'd be an advanced setting for those who know
07:39:18 <planetmaker> one could combine a selection of default and a 2nd param which is user-configurable that way
07:39:23 <planetmaker> and use the latter only when set
07:39:38 <Terkhen> yes, for normal users a selection of common presets would do
07:39:40 <planetmaker> it would also help supermob's depot grf

10:30:53 <zydeco> I'm implementing CJK input in mac os x
10:31:02 <zydeco> but it only works on 10.6 or later
10:31:15 *** andythenorth has left #openttd
10:37:34 <Terkhen> that sounds boring too
10:46:58 <zydeco> there's some code from mozilla

11:01:44 <Eddi|zuHause> large town houses built before 1960 (value open to discussion) should accept coal

11:02:11 *** DDR has quit IRC
11:02:16 <Eddi|zuHause> nah, that's silly
11:02:29 <Eddi|zuHause> maybe large town houses before 1850 accept wood?

11:09:15 <andythenorth> and that they were scaled according to the amount of money you have
11:09:44 <andythenorth> "gangsters demand protection money - 50% of net income"
11:09:59 <andythenorth> "proceed to old kent road"

11:43:43 <Eddi|zuHause> clearly you need a station spread of 32768 on a 32768^2 map
11:44:39 *** asilv has joined #openttd
11:45:45 <zydeco> so you only need one station?
11:47:34 <Eddi|zuHause> only one station won't work, you need two stations, but you can send the train with cargo both ways
11:53:37 *** dfox has quit IRC
11:54:31 <planetmaker> zydeco, that's fine enough for a start
11:54:58 <planetmaker> though a 10.4+ implementation would be preferrable ;-)
11:55:06 <zydeco> I'm trying that now
11:55:48 <planetmaker> be sure to attach the patch to the appropriate flyspray entry :-)
11:55:56 <zydeco> of course
11:55:59 <planetmaker> I'll gladly go over it
11:56:16 <zydeco> the 10.6+ code is nice and clean
11:56:23 <zydeco> but the other one is quite ugly
11:56:25 *** goblin has joined #openttd
11:56:34 <planetmaker> you could also for discussion purposes attach both ;-)
11:56:40 * andythenorth_ should upgrade to 10.6 :P
11:56:45 <andythenorth_> and also learn to speak CJK
11:56:48 <planetmaker> andythenorth_, wait for 10.7 ;-)
11:57:14 <andythenorth_> I've never been behind the curve before
11:57:24 <andythenorth_> must be a sign of maturity for either me, or the OS :P

12:59:33 *** ChanServ sets mode: +v glx
13:00:09 * andythenorth_ is considering vcs for a new project
13:00:18 <andythenorth_> how does openttd use both hg and svn?
13:00:21 <DanMacK> vcs?
13:00:29 <andythenorth_> can commits be made via hg, or svn only?
13:00:30 <glx> andythenorth_: and git
13:00:36 <andythenorth_> git is on our list too
13:00:40 <glx> commits are via svn only
13:00:49 <andythenorth_> so git & hg are checkout only?
13:01:03 <glx> kind of synchronised clones
13:01:21 <andythenorth_> anyone care to comment on their preferred vcs of hg / git / svn?
13:01:51 <glx> it depends on what you exactly need
13:02:03 <andythenorth_> distributed vcs preferred by me
13:02:10 <andythenorth_> I dislike svn
13:02:12 *** roboboy has quit IRC
13:02:17 <andythenorth_> it doesn't encourage atomic commits
13:03:13 <andythenorth_> is migrating from svn to hg / git later a viable plan for a new project?
13:03:18 <andythenorth_> or does that lose revision history?
13:04:06 <Terkhen> mercurial has tools that allow you to import that, git probably has them too
13:05:21 <planetmaker> the question is: why would you start with one and migrate later - if you know it already now?
13:05:32 <andythenorth_> the rest of the team don't know hg
13:05:34 <andythenorth_> or git
13:06:02 <andythenorth_> and we don't want to risk our project on new tools
13:06:08 <planetmaker> well. If they use tortoiseSVN they'll find it easy to use TortoiseHG
13:06:23 <andythenorth_> they're more command-line driven :D
13:06:30 <planetmaker> good :-)
13:06:36 <andythenorth_> and it's a question of deploying production code to multiple boxes
13:06:47 <andythenorth_> in a managed way
13:06:52 <andythenorth_> with a lot of python packages in play
13:06:59 <planetmaker> point of, say, hg vs. svn: with hg you can do offline commits. With svn you can't
13:07:05 <andythenorth_> I know
13:07:07 <andythenorth_> I like that
13:07:26 <Terkhen> also hg usually works faster because of that
13:07:27 <planetmaker> It should not be a problem, if the people know svn
13:07:44 <planetmaker> then they could just as well use hg. I *think*.
13:07:50 <planetmaker> But... easy to say that I know and use both
13:08:13 <planetmaker> so it depends on other boundary conditions
13:10:06 <planetmaker> the "backdraw" of hg over svn is that only the hash is unique. The revision number is not necessarily the same on your and my machine
13:10:21 <planetmaker> but that's the case for every dvcs
13:11:48 <zydeco> why is there a quickdraw window driver
13:11:57 <planetmaker> why not?
13:12:00 <zydeco> my cjk input doesn't work with it :p
13:12:13 <planetmaker> he
13:12:25 <zydeco> and it also doesn't work in full screen
13:12:34 <planetmaker> :-(
13:12:40 <planetmaker> also not the 10.6 only version?
13:12:50 <zydeco> no, full screen captures the whole screen
13:12:52 <zydeco> so no windows can show
13:18:17 <peter1138> planetmaker, drawback :S

13:33:48 *** JOHN-SHEPARD has joined #openttd
13:41:20 *** andythenorth_ has quit IRC
13:42:57 *** andythenorth has joined #openttd
13:50:14 <planetmaker> peter1138, well, it is. A simple number is easier to grasp on first sight than a rather lengthy hash
13:50:30 <planetmaker> IMHO it doesn't outweigh any of the other advantages of dvcs, though
13:52:11 <peter1138> planetmaker, as opposed to... "backdraw" ?
13:52:44 <peter1138> sorry, i didn't actually read what you were talking about, only picked up on the word :)
13:52:50 <peter1138> (and i like git)
13:53:14 <peter1138> the hash *is* the 'revision number'
13:55:45 <blathijs> planetmaker: Btw, if offline commits is the only thing you want for svn, try svk :-)
13:55:58 <peter1138> svk... uck.
13:56:20 <blathijs> planetmaker: (I am totally fan of using hg, or even better, git, for a ton of additional reasons)
14:00:29 <planetmaker> blathijs, peter1138: I'm not advising svn here ;-) - but it's something which can be a (weak) argument.
14:01:39 <blathijs> What I've always wandered, is why hg didn't just use incremental revision numbers per branch
14:02:12 <blathijs> that is, number each revision by the number of commits since the root commit
14:03:10 <blathijs> so they are the same in different repository, but there might be double revisions in different branches
14:03:35 <Mazur> Id there anywhere a list of webpage detailing the order in which certain NewGRFs must be to work well?
14:03:42 <Mazur> s/of/or/
14:04:21 <andythenorth> hmm
14:04:27 <andythenorth> fish cargo is a total winner in FIRS now
14:04:37 <andythenorth> barely any infrastructure needed
14:04:37 <blathijs> but I guess such a number gets complicated when branching and merging
14:04:39 <andythenorth> high paying
14:05:16 <andythenorth> @seen frosch123
14:05:16 <DorpsGek> andythenorth: frosch123 was last seen in #openttd 18 hours, 14 minutes, and 31 seconds ago: <frosch123> will take a look the groundsprite case later
14:05:47 <planetmaker> blathijs, but it counts things from the first revision onward. But having double, tripple or whatever version numbers would be quite bad
14:06:07 <planetmaker> I could after all merge a number of (previously) independent projects - what then?
14:06:27 <Belugas> hello
14:06:32 <planetmaker> hi Belugas
14:07:06 <Belugas> mister bright planetmaker!
14:21:04 *** Chris_Booth_ has joined #openttd
14:33:19 *** dfox has joined #openttd
14:55:03 <Eddi|zuHause> merging branches takes the maximum their respective "sequential commit numbers", and adds 1
14:55:21 <Eddi|zuHause> i see no immediate problem with that
15:03:30 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, but with hg I can also merge two unreleated repositories. As such I'd get n + m + 1 as the new revision number; thus one repo would need to be re-numbered.
15:04:04 <planetmaker> like, for example, where the nforenum repository was merged into the grfcodec one.
15:05:09 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: what would make pulling from a new repo different from just creating a new branch?
15:06:51 <planetmaker> the lack of heredity
15:07:41 <Eddi|zuHause> yes, so both can start counting at 0... i don't see the problem...
15:09:17 <planetmaker> and the whole point was: having a revision number twice is probably not a good idea. Thus one of those would need re-numbering upon a merge
15:11:00 <Eddi|zuHause> and i said, it wouldn't need renumbering...
15:11:19 <planetmaker> if you accept double revision numbers
15:14:43 *** andythenorth has left #openttd
15:17:23 <zydeco> ok, I managed to get CJK working on 10.4+
15:18:14 <zydeco> on 10.6+, the input window appears under the current field, on older versions it's global
15:25:02 <zydeco> oh, I must still test things with that evil backquote key

16:20:07 <dihedral> what's wrong with you? cant he take a break?
16:20:14 <dihedral> :-P
16:20:47 <ZirconiumX> that's almost 2 weeks since I've last seen him
16:21:03 <ZirconiumX> a very long break at that
16:21:08 <planetmaker> I have _seen_ only a few people which lurk in this channel ;-)
16:21:28 <Terkhen> he's always active at the forums
16:21:29 <ZirconiumX> s/seen/talked
16:21:46 <planetmaker> and if I want to get hold of a person urgently who is not here... I write a forum mail or e-mail.
16:21:56 <ZirconiumX> happy now?
16:22:24 <planetmaker> sorry, no. I'd be happy, if I had these exams already off my desk
16:22:51 * ZirconiumX moves the exams off the desk
16:23:01 * ZirconiumX puts them on the floor
16:23:06 <SmatZ> :)
16:23:07 <ZirconiumX> happy now?
16:23:09 <planetmaker> hmpf ;-)
16:23:09 <__ln__> tilt the table to 45 degrees for a while
16:23:26 <planetmaker> __ln__, that'd interrupt communications probably quite hard ;-)
16:23:38 <planetmaker> though... computer is on other desk :-P
16:23:52 * ZirconiumX turns __ln__'s table 45 degrees
16:25:33 * ZirconiumX has a unique service, for making people laugh
16:26:07 <dihedral> depends around which axis you want to turn the table :-P
16:26:54 <ZirconiumX> turns table 45degrees to the X, 45 degrees to the Y, 45 degrees to the Z
16:27:08 <ZirconiumX> 45 degrees truthwise
16:27:52 * dihedral tries to picture .....
16:29:28 <ZirconiumX> dihedral probably fails
16:33:56 * Belugas loves cryptic error messages : "Exception : The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request."
16:34:09 <Belugas> good luck finding who what where or when
16:34:19 <peter1138> i like "An error occurred: Success"
16:34:50 <ZirconiumX> mkdir yellow_pages; cat yellow_pages
16:35:04 <ZirconiumX> yellow_pages: Is a directory
16:35:59 <fonsinchen> Well, that's what the cat tells you about yellow pages. What's the problem? ;)
16:38:39 <ZirconiumX> cat "can of food"
16:38:48 <ZirconiumX> cat: cannot open can of food
16:38:56 <ZirconiumX> the cat must be hungry then

17:50:54 <rane> is there any good site with fairly fresh savegames?

17:51:12 *** JVassie has joined #openttd
17:52:08 <rane> for example for the love of god i can't figure out how long my trains should be:-)
17:52:51 <rane> i remember building 6 tiles long when i last played but that doesn't work now at all, they wait ages for pickup and businesses close down because deliveries are twice a year only
17:54:04 <Ammler> rane: use timetable instead full load
17:54:34 <Ammler> if the 2nd train arrives, let the 1st one go, also if not completely full
17:58:24 <Eddi|zuHause> you start out with small trains, and make them bigger as the industries grow
18:01:20 <rane> i'll try that
18:01:39 <rane> without timetables i typically can't go beyond 80% delivered and that doesn't encourage growth at all
18:01:56 <rane> final thing i struggle with, i have no idea how to organize priority for mainline with path signals
18:02:12 <rane> only way i can figure is trying to let mainline train reserve more track prior to crossing
18:02:37 <rane> but that ruins my signal every 2 tiles rule and trains behind prioritised train start stopping causing even more trouble
18:04:17 <Eddi|zuHause> afair you just need above 67% for increased growth chance
18:04:55 <Eddi|zuHause> path signals don't really have a way of doing priorities
18:05:12 <Eddi|zuHause> maybe check this out:
18:05:39 <rane> there could be "priority" variants for normal signals
18:05:50 <rane> as a feature

18:26:20 <rane> wow realistic acceleration is awesome
18:28:00 <rane> but i need to rebuild crossings to avoid double 45s :-)
18:29:32 <supermop> its worth it
18:32:49 <Ammler> well, double 45s is also realistic, trains do slow down on short curves
18:34:19 <rane> i'd expect that yes
18:34:34 <rane> when i move to timetables, i should stop using "wait for full", right?
18:37:20 <supermop> yeah
18:37:46 <supermop> although you might want to when you are testing out a route
18:38:09 <supermop> to get a rough idea how long a full load takes for a particular train
18:38:39 <planetmaker> if there's enough cargo waiting it'll load full anyway
18:39:00 <supermop> I usually spend about 1 game year on a new route figuring out the optimal timetable
18:39:49 <supermop> occasionally it has taken much loger
18:40:17 <rane> game goes so fast
18:40:42 <planetmaker> doesn't really matter. you can play endlessly

18:45:51 <supermop> on a side track,
18:46:06 <supermop> then return to 6 to load after the next train unloaded
18:46:28 <supermop> about 3 month overall cycle in the timetables in game
18:47:12 <supermop> started operation in the 70s with manley morell dmus, had to upgrade to dash dmus in the middle of planning

18:51:02 <supermop> there is none
18:51:10 <supermop> you just have to figure it out
18:51:26 <rane> oh
18:51:29 <rane> darn.
18:51:38 <rane> but first traffic jam and it all is ruined
18:51:59 <supermop> at least i am not away of any
18:51:59 <rane> because i need to launch them at specific times so they don't bunch together
18:52:04 <supermop> yeah
18:52:15 <supermop> you can do that with a very specific timetable
18:52:53 <rane> i have a lot of random traffic dumped into one 2+2 line that takes everything everywhere
18:58:07 <supermop> one approach would be to use one track in each direction just for timetabled traffic
18:58:31 <supermop> so that you do not have to try to schedule everything all at once

19:32:49 <rane> i have like half clover leaves with two extra tracks wrapped on the outside of everything and now due to realistic acceleration i extended clover leave exits even further to avoid 2x 45 turns and then added some extra tracks beyond those extended exits

20:49:47 <rane> i have hard time imagining to play on such a scale
20:50:49 <Vikthor> that's why various daylenght patches exist

20:55:39 <Terkhen> too complicated for me :P
20:56:02 <Vikthor> yeah, daylength 8 is nice
20:56:46 <Eddi|zuHause> for me it's the right balance for getting time to actually connect larger parts of the map, but still have some technological advancement
20:58:18 <Eddi|zuHause> the problem is, the original daylength is so tightly intertwined with the game mechanics, that no clean way to introduce daylength exists...
20:58:34 *** DayDreamer has quit IRC
21:03:29 <Zuu> The recent change of the opcodes budget has probably broken the break on log string feature.
21:06:33 <Eddi|zuHause> how so?
21:07:05 <Zuu> Since break on log string does not work, and that change is the only one I have seen recently that could be the reason.
21:07:18 <Zuu> At least without taking a lookn in the code.
21:07:26 <Terkhen> does it work correctly in the revision before that?
21:07:41 <Zuu> Not sure, but it did work just a few days ago.
21:08:16 <Zuu> break on log string works such that whenever a log string matches it uses up all opcodes.
21:08:31 <Zuu> It is probably the formula there for how many opcodes to use that needs updating.
21:09:02 <Zuu> It resides in InvalidateData of ai debug window.
21:09:23 <Zuu> well, maybe not there, but the call that you can trace to find where it happens.

21:17:32 <vb> how do i remove a wagon and not replace it with anything?
21:17:34 <Alberth> hi
21:17:57 <vb> i got lots of trains with caboose, which i don't need anymore
21:18:22 <Zuu> Find a NewGRF with a very short wagon to replace it with?
21:18:34 <Zuu> Or wait for consists to be implemented.
21:18:43 <vb> what?
21:19:22 <Zuu> A consist = a sequence of wagons
21:19:30 *** Brianetta has joined #openttd
21:19:48 <vb> uhm
21:19:49 <Zuu> Thus with consits + reworked autoreplace it will be possible to define changes from one consist to another.
21:20:08 <Zuu> But it is all just ideas so far.
21:20:10 <vb> is there no other possible way?
21:20:31 <frosch123> Zuu: it could as well be r22135
21:20:47 *** Eggman891 has joined #openttd
21:21:03 <Zuu> If you know C++, you could maybe hack togeather something that removes wagons with zero capacity and no power when trains visit depots.
21:21:08 <frosch123> can you check which revision broke it?
21:21:27 <Zuu> Sure, I'm currently compiling last rev to debug it.
21:21:30 <Terkhen> vb: I'm afraid there is no easy way to do that
21:21:55 <Terkhen> I would just send them all to depot and buy new ones, it's probably faster than replacing them one by one
21:23:11 <rane> one thing i can't get around of
21:23:20 <rane> when i use path signals and there's a traffic jam somewhere
21:23:27 <rane> trains will flip around and travel wrong side
21:23:39 <rane> is there a setting to prevent them from ever turning around?
21:23:50 <rane> and just wait until i fix it?
21:25:34 <Vikthor> yes, in 1.1.0-RC1 there is, I believe, Under vehicles, trains.
21:29:45 <Ammler> vb, replace the engine with a double head and set "remove waggon", then replace the double head back to one head
21:30:00 <vb> what?
21:30:19 <vb> are you sure that's gonna work?
21:30:35 <Ammler> if you replace a engine with a longer (double), it will automatically remove the last waggon
21:30:46 <dihedral> visual basic?
21:30:52 <Ammler> so the train lenght keeps the same
21:31:35 <vb> hmm
21:32:03 <vb> i think i will just send to depot the trains that still have a caboose
21:33:01 <Ammler> hmm, actually not sure, if those would be determined as waggons :-/
21:33:07 <Eddi|zuHause> one could almost think the internet has some kind of humor:
21:34:00 <Eddi|zuHause> Ammler: sure it doesn't remove the first wagon?
21:35:23 <Ammler> no :-)

21:52:59 <Zuu> planetmaker: Hmm, that r22135 looks like it is.
21:53:37 <Zuu> Actually, for some log strings it does break, but not for others. Probably a result of the asyncronous execution.
21:53:55 <planetmaker> uhm, say what?
21:54:24 <Zuu> r22135: "When commands need to invalidate windows, process these events asynchronously before the next redraw."
21:54:55 <frosch123> Zuu: then add a "true" at the end of the right InvalidateWindowData :)

22:28:31 <Chaot_s> lol :D that might have had some funny resultings whe 1.0 was released.
22:29:02 <Chaot_s> yay! we have V1! ... some other person.. that was back in 199X
22:29:30 <SmatZ> rather 2004 :p
22:29:36 <Chaot_s> though thanks for clearing that up :D
22:29:44 <SmatZ> openttd isn't far that old
22:30:03 <Chaot_s> i didn't have a clue, the original game was.... somewhere 1999 or so i think :D
22:30:18 <Zuu> More info about different version shemas used in OpenTTD:
22:31:13 <Zuu> Though you could safely skip the part about MiniN as it is very old now.
22:31:24 <SmatZ> Transport Tycoon (TT) and Transport Tycoon Deluxe (TTD) are computer games developed by Chris Sawyer and published by MicroProse in 1994 (TT), and 1995 (TTD).
22:31:28 <SmatZ> ^^^
22:34:23 <Chaot_s> lol
22:34:48 <Chaot_s> somehow i'm thinking of jumping in to the source code to start understanding the signals :D
22:35:12 <Chaot_s> it somehow makes me think of a if / then / else idea....
22:35:19 <SmatZ> Chaot_s: I am sure that would take a lot of time to understand things from the sources
22:35:35 <Chaot_s> though everytime i think i know what they are doing, i mes up :D
22:35:44 <Chaot_s> *mess
22:35:51 <SmatZ> the basics are simple
22:36:14 <SmatZ> block signals, pre-signals, exit/combo-signals
22:36:18 <Chaot_s> entry exit, combo path oneway path.
22:36:33 <SmatZ> the other class is one/two-way PBS
22:37:28 <Chaot_s> the entry to exit (one way i do understand)
22:40:30 <Chaot_s> i just dont get the trick, it's something i'm missing somehow.
22:40:58 <Chaot_s> may i post a picture and ask some feedback ( i know lots of rubish stuff in there :D
22:44:01 <vb> i suppose so
22:48:13 <Terkhen> good night
22:48:24 <Chaot_s> sleep wel Terkhen
22:48:26 <Chaot_s>
22:48:45 <Chaot_s> for example that.
22:49:24 <Chaot_s> it does balance the trains of all availeble exit stations, and only feeds a train if can reach a free station.
22:50:04 <Chaot_s> though why do i need a two way combo signal in the midle to make more trains enter the station.
22:50:16 <Chaot_s> why is just one combo signal not working
22:50:43 <vb> use path signals
22:50:48 <Chaot_s> or am i just stupid :D and messed up thanks to asumptions made upon first time errors :D
22:50:51 <vb> allways red ones
22:51:17 <vb> and remove all of the lights infront of the station
22:51:20 <vb> except the last one
22:51:27 <vb> or so i would do
22:53:08 <rane> on 64x64 i will ever only have 1 business of each type?
22:53:17 <rane> can the close? can new ones open?
22:53:26 <rane> will there ever be 2nd city?
22:54:29 <Chaot_s> iirc you can enable some things in the cheat menu.
22:54:37 <Chaot_s> ctrl+alt+c
22:55:12 <vb> Chaot_s, i'l show you what i mean
22:55:26 <Chaot_s> okay thanx vb
22:55:38 *** KouDy has quit IRC
22:56:33 <vb> this one
22:56:40 <vb> that's how i would signal that station
22:56:49 <Chaot_s> rane : advanced settings, economie, industries, you can enable some settings to allow multiple industries of the same type to be build, also you can set an option to alow you to build things.
22:57:05 <vb> well, ofc, you can make the stations as long as you want
22:57:38 <vb> or it could be even easyer
22:58:36 <Chaot_s> hmm, i'm going to test that idea :D
22:58:41 <vb> i think you should put another path signal with a normal signal behind him, before those 3 to 3 splitting lanes
22:58:51 <vb> because otherwise it would take longer
22:59:19 <vb> i'l show you another pic
22:59:58 <Chaot_s> i'm building a somwhat stupid testcase... 120 trains station (stationsize is set to 64)
23:00:19 <SmatZ> 120 trains at once?
23:00:27 <vb>
23:00:34 <vb> this one is better i think
23:00:39 <vb>
23:00:43 <Chaot_s> and iwould like to make te signaling setup more advanced.
23:00:57 <Chaot_s> though somehow they have some bounce effect i can't understand.
23:00:58 <SmatZ> waiting space is always good
23:01:07 <SmatZ> <3 presignals :p
23:01:09 <vb> yup
23:01:20 <vb> the red only ones are presignals or pathsignals?
23:01:50 *** DanMacK has joined #openttd
23:01:50 <Chaot_s> so there always needs to be a normal signal in front of thos to "split" the path to that destionation.
23:01:52 <SmatZ> red-only?
23:01:54 <vb> whatever they are called
23:01:55 <vb> yes
23:02:02 <SmatZ> PBS are (almost) always red
23:02:08 <vb> so it waits there
23:02:20 <Chaot_s> this will work if there isn't a longer train ariving.
23:02:21 <SmatZ> they get green only for a short moment when train s going to go through them
23:02:23 <vb> if the first signal doesn't permit him to advance
23:02:57 <Chaot_s> when the station is full (9 filled tracks) the train will que on the track with the shortest path...
23:03:01 <Chaot_s> or am i wrong?
23:03:08 <vb> probably
23:03:53 <vb> i think there also needs to be 3 normal signals(1/line) where the tracks split for first time
23:03:58 <Chaot_s> i could easely test that out on a trainstation with very long routes and about 200 trains sheduled to pass that station...
23:04:10 <vb> you should
23:04:12 <vb> test it out
23:04:46 <Chaot_s> hope i'm not going to need to start stop all trains after that :d
23:04:50 *** ar3k has quit IRC
23:06:33 *** asilv has quit IRC
23:06:43 <Chaot_s> most of the tests tries i did i ended up with a full station (slower exits than the feed could handle) and then a train that enters the first availeble track and waits til the train leaves.
23:07:07 <Chaot_s> jamming the other 15 tracks that get cleared after that train :D
23:07:25 *** Fast2 has quit IRC
23:08:41 <vb> so
23:08:43 <vb> not good?
23:08:46 <vb> show me a picture
23:10:09 <Chaot_s> i'm curently modifying the station,
23:10:27 <Chaot_s> that was what happens most of the times i tried using pats signals :D
