05:21:47 <Pokka> ew
05:22:09 <SmatZ> mornong, Pokka
05:22:24 <Pokka> mornong
05:22:40 <Pokka> what's cooking?
05:23:27 <SmatZ> not much I guess
05:24:42 <Pokka> oh
05:25:35 * Pokka feels like a sleep
05:26:09 <Pokka> or doing some 3d for av8
05:26:24 <SmatZ> :)
05:26:45 <Pokka> sadly I am sitting in a bus behind the museum and can't do either
05:32:34 <SmatZ> :(
05:34:21 <Pokka> only 4 hours til I can go home...

08:31:36 <Pokka> good moin terkhen
08:32:21 <Terkhen> hi Pokka
08:34:18 * Hendikins decides that since he's got no real trains to play with at work today, he'll play some ottd.
08:35:20 <dihedral> good morning ladies :-)
08:36:16 <Pokka> lucky you hendikins
08:36:27 <Pokka> oh well
08:36:45 * Pokka on the way home, at least
08:44:33 <Hendikins> Pokka: I'd rather be doing work than sitting on standby.

10:12:32 <Wolf01> hello
10:13:28 <Terkhen> hi Wolf01
10:14:26 *** Devroush has joined #openttd
10:16:24 * Hendikins yawns some, ponders whether he gets overly elegant in this game.
10:29:28 <dihedral> ...
10:29:49 <dihedral> sounds like something worth to ponder ^^
10:31:09 <Hendikins> The thing is, elegant gets expensive.
10:33:04 <Pikka> bump the elephant isn't quite as elegant
10:33:09 <Hendikins> So the question is probably more correctly stated as "Am I pissing money up the wall by being overly elegant?"
10:33:42 <Pikka> the elegant bits are usually simpler though, so why would they be more expensive?
10:34:21 <Pikka> or maybe I'm just interpreting "elegant" as "not building junctions three times the size of cities"
10:36:05 <Hendikins> Elegant is stuff that isn't quick and dirty.
10:37:59 <Hendikins> For example, I might run a straight and more level double track corridor and do the associated earthworks, rather than just running a track wherever I can find a space.
10:43:39 *** KenjiE20 has joined #openttd
10:48:36 <Mazur> Good...
10:55:55 <Hendikins> Balloon loops, runaround roads, etc.
10:56:03 *** Intexon has joined #openttd

11:03:12 <Markk> Oi
11:03:27 *** Intexon has quit IRC
11:04:43 <Eddi|zuHause> hm... anyone noticed how germany is (almost) the only european country without a major boost in right-wing parties over the last few years?
11:07:04 <__ln__> implicitly noticed
11:10:07 <Eddi|zuHause> hm... i don't suppose it's possible to make a vehicle both articulated and dualheaded
11:10:44 <Wolf01> airports' buses
11:10:49 *** DoubleYou has quit IRC
11:11:23 <Eddi|zuHause> i meant "dualheaded" as "able to put wagons in the middle"

11:56:29 <Eddi|zuHause> <-- interesting, electrification without track...
12:05:07 <Hendikins> Line possibly singled?
12:05:20 <Hendikins> After all, you'd lay the track before wiring it.
12:07:48 <Eddi|zuHause> nope, it's a visual illusion... <-- here you see the second track ;)
12:09:52 <Hendikins> Oddly enough, there have been cases of wired roads being singled and the overhead being left up.

12:59:29 * Belugas is in an awfull mood. spent part of the night in emergency. Son has an ear infection. it did NOT required emergency, but it made mom felt better
12:59:41 <Belugas> and that is a good reason enough to get there ...

13:34:06 <yorick> hrrm, PBI is not on bananas?
13:34:58 <planetmaker> possibly not. Bug pikka
13:35:33 <Pikka> PBI was never "finished"
13:35:41 <yorick> well I enjoyed it
13:36:06 <planetmaker> Well, but it's used often enough that it might warrant distribution ;-) And the 'not finished' feeling definitely does not come up
13:36:21 *** andythenorth has joined #openttd
13:36:32 <andythenorth> it's a shame the fund industry tool can't show when a position would be valid for construction
13:36:42 <planetmaker> it's not a comprehensive re-make of all industries as FIRS or ECS, but a small but neat modification of the existing ones with some small additions
13:37:09 <planetmaker> which in itself could be a valid goal which is achieved there nicely
13:37:41 <planetmaker> and it'd be one step more to making the coop grfpack obsolete :-P
13:37:59 * andythenorth loves PBI
13:38:09 <andythenorth> is anything ever finished? :P
13:38:21 <planetmaker> Pikka, you could alternatively upload it with a max version set to 1.0 or so. Then only old savegames could trigger a download. But... ^
13:38:39 <andythenorth> PBI may not be finished, but it is 'done'
13:38:40 <andythenorth> :D
13:39:00 <Pikka> TaI basic industries!
13:39:04 <Pikka> one day I will finish it!
13:39:13 <peter1138> TAI!
13:39:13 <planetmaker> that's a different thing :-)
13:39:19 <andythenorth> TAI TAI!
13:39:23 <Pikka> it will be all 19thcenturyised!
13:39:27 <andythenorth> bonkers
13:40:16 <peter1138> it'll be all fields when i were a lad
13:40:26 <Pikka> yes
13:40:45 <peter1138> clearly 32 cargo types and x industry types IS NOT ENOUGH
13:40:59 <Pikka> I'm pretty sure we need 128 cargo types
13:41:05 <andythenorth> why stop there?
13:41:07 <andythenorth> 256?
13:41:07 <peter1138> pfft
13:41:11 <peter1138> why limit at all
13:41:24 <planetmaker> and every industry being unique.
13:41:25 <peter1138> over 9000 cargo types
13:41:32 <andythenorth> I'm pretty sure I've invented then binned at least 9000 cargo types
13:41:41 <Pikka> mind you
13:41:44 <Pikka> before you do that
13:41:45 <andythenorth> ah...but they can all be done with (subtypes)
13:41:46 <andythenorth> :P
13:41:59 <Pikka> you need to make industries accept/produce more than 3/2 cargos :)
13:42:06 <andythenorth> subtypes are *really* a great idea :\
13:42:16 <planetmaker> they are ;-)
13:42:20 <andythenorth> Pikka: industries should produce at least 9000 cargos
13:42:38 <Pikka> ALSO
13:42:46 <Pikka> someone needs to finish newairports :}
13:42:58 <andythenorth> oh was that mentioned?
13:43:01 <andythenorth> newports
13:43:10 <Pikka> my cousins are newports
13:43:13 * andythenorth wants to sack the stupid water-industry-airports
13:43:15 <andythenorth> for a better way
13:43:47 <Pikka> yes, we need newports which allow all vehicle types
13:43:57 <peter1138> newpikka
13:44:02 <Pikka> so we can make gibraltar airport
13:44:02 <andythenorth> new peter1138
13:44:07 <andythenorth> new roadtypes!
13:44:14 <Pikka> those too
13:44:20 <andythenorth> new extended action 2 tile layouts :P
13:44:23 <Pikka> so we can make canals as roads
13:44:38 <peter1138> newless
13:44:45 <andythenorth> newmore
13:44:51 <Pikka> anyway
13:45:05 <andythenorth> how many cargos should an industry produce?
13:45:06 <Terkhen> newnew
13:45:10 <Pikka> av8 2.0, 20th of october, floatplanes with wakes which will look very odd landing on concrete :D
13:45:15 <yorick> we need less complicated graphics format!
13:45:22 <andythenorth> eh?
13:45:22 <Pikka> apparently!
13:45:33 <andythenorth> we need more complicated graphics format!
13:45:38 <andythenorth> more spec! more features!
13:45:56 <Terkhen> no, developing newgrfs must take a big toll on the coder's sanity
13:46:06 <andythenorth> there's no evidence of that here
13:46:11 <Pikka> nope
13:46:13 <yorick> andythenorth: more advanced, less complicated
13:46:15 <Pikka> .avi
13:46:25 <Pikka> ah yes, yorick
13:46:39 <andythenorth> meh
13:46:42 <peter1138> ini files?
13:46:44 * andythenorth sees no big wins in that
13:46:51 <andythenorth> lot of work for no benefit
13:47:06 <andythenorth> industries should produce 7 cargos?
13:47:15 <planetmaker> nah. 32
13:47:20 <planetmaker> and input, too
13:47:21 <Pikka> the old "do what I want you to do without me having to actually work it out in a logical way" programming that so many people need so they can get into coding. :P
13:47:28 <planetmaker> then finally there can be oversea ports
13:47:46 <Terkhen> besides overseas ports, can you give an example of an industry producing 7 separate cargos? :P
13:47:51 <peter1138> de-special-case everything
13:48:12 <andythenorth> Terkhen: forest
13:48:26 <planetmaker> Terkhen: chocolate factory: nougat, marzipan, chocolate easter bunnies, chocolate santa clause, chocolate easter eggs, ... ;-)
13:48:30 <andythenorth> exactamly
13:48:31 <yorick> Pikka: yes that
13:48:39 <yorick> Pikka: or even squirrel based newgrfs :)
13:48:46 <Pikka> ew
13:48:51 <planetmaker> where's that easier, yorick ?
13:48:57 <Terkhen> meh, you are just making too specific cargos
13:49:00 * andythenorth likes the annoying 2-cargo output limit
13:49:11 <planetmaker> :-) @ Terkhen ;-)
13:49:12 <andythenorth> although a cb might be a better way...
13:49:16 <Terkhen> there was a project for squirrel GRFs...
13:49:27 <planetmaker> was it yorick's project?
13:49:28 <Pikka> I think what we need is even more ways to write grfs, so that the knowledge and assistance base for new coders is even more fragmented than it is now
13:49:41 <Terkhen> it might be, I don't remember much :)
13:49:45 <andythenorth> if we make it simple enough....anyone could write a grf
13:49:47 <yorick> Pikka: it wasn't
13:49:53 <andythenorth> imagine the unlocking of creativity that would allow
13:50:07 <peter1138> s/creativity/crap/
13:50:08 <andythenorth> "because stupid people make the best game designers"
13:50:13 <planetmaker> :-P
13:50:25 <Terkhen> :d
13:50:40 <Pikka> andythenorth: you know what would make a really good newgrf?
13:50:45 <andythenorth> nfo + pngs?
13:51:01 <Pikka> all the trains/planes that I, personally, have been on in the last couple of years
13:51:09 <planetmaker> :-)
13:51:10 <Pikka> and maybe one steam locomotive for completeness
13:51:19 <peter1138> lol
13:51:39 <planetmaker> Pikka, I always assumed we have that: NARS + UKRS2 + av8 ;-)
13:51:53 <andythenorth> you know what would make a better newgrf?
13:51:57 <andythenorth> everything in these videos:
13:52:18 <peter1138> nah, all ottd really needs is a race car grf
13:52:33 <Terkhen> we need a real mars grf
13:52:44 <andythenorth> a proper space climate? :o
13:52:47 <Terkhen> andythenorth: isn't that heqs?
13:52:56 <andythenorth> not really
13:53:00 <planetmaker> nah. It needs a Mars GRF. A moon GRF. and rockets as 5th transport type.
13:53:01 <Pikka> ew spaceclimate
13:53:06 <andythenorth> Terkhen I restrained myself :P
13:53:16 <andythenorth> spaceclimate would take fricking ages I reckon
13:53:24 <planetmaker> andythenorth, how so?
13:53:27 <andythenorth> unlikely anyone's got time for that
13:53:29 <planetmaker> drawing side?
13:53:33 <Pikka> especially if the creator got bored with it about 60% of the way through
13:53:40 <andythenorth> what's really needed is this:
13:53:41 <planetmaker> :-D
13:53:48 <Pikka> and decided to use waiting for newports as an excuse for putting it off
13:54:30 * planetmaker now does not look into Pikka's direction and sprite drawer
13:54:34 <Pikka> these sure are some transport vehicles you're showing off, andythenorth
13:54:41 <Terkhen> a good excuse, the existing airports would look strange for rockets, spaceships and so on
13:54:56 <andythenorth> this might need newports
13:55:00 <andythenorth> newlocks?!?
13:55:14 <planetmaker> "real" locks :-P
13:55:23 <Terkhen> "ships don't climb slopes" locks
13:55:41 <andythenorth> 27 cargos for industries?
13:55:48 <andythenorth> hmm
13:55:51 <andythenorth> but seriously....
13:56:02 <peter1138> NUM_CARGOS
13:56:24 <planetmaker> andythenorth, add it to newgrf specs v8 ;-)
13:56:32 <andythenorth> I don't actually mind
13:56:44 <andythenorth> constraints are somewhat good
13:56:55 *** zachanima has quit IRC
13:57:12 <andythenorth> I can cheat for acceptance using the tile acceptance
13:57:14 <peter1138> what ottd needs is a scrollbar in the minimap
13:57:22 <planetmaker> Terkhen, how big is your andalusia scenario?
13:57:30 <andythenorth> peter1138: or something similar
13:57:30 <Terkhen> 1024*512
13:57:32 <andythenorth> keys or something
13:57:37 <andythenorth> scrolling minimap drives me nuts
13:57:39 <Pikka> NUM NUM NUM cargos
13:57:41 <planetmaker> hm... borderline, but ok :-)
13:57:46 <peter1138> not for the minimap itself
13:57:47 <Terkhen> the last version was 2048*1024 :P
13:57:49 <andythenorth> Pikka: what's planned for regearing?
13:57:54 <peter1138> but the huge list of industry types
13:58:01 <Terkhen> 512*256 was too small
13:58:07 <Pikka> putting it in a bucket and setting fire to it, andythenorth
13:58:12 <andythenorth> peter1138 LessIndustries?
13:58:20 <andythenorth> reduce the limit to 32, problem solved
13:58:26 <andythenorth> Pikka currently I have to keep a FIRS slot free for regearing...
13:58:36 <peter1138> i'm getting old so i use a larger-than-normal font size ;p
13:58:45 <Pikka> I'll get rid of it in the next version of NARS2, whenever that may be
13:58:56 <andythenorth> NARS3?
13:59:31 <Terkhen> planetmaker: are you planning to try it?
13:59:39 <andythenorth> peter1138: still trying HEQS? Or some other grf with insane amounts of industry types?
13:59:54 <andythenorth> oops FIRS :m
14:00:12 <peter1138> FIRS, yes
14:00:14 * andythenorth should just merge all grfs into one :P
14:00:16 <planetmaker> Terkhen, I just got the idea to upload it to one of the servers as a map. And see what people make of it ;-)
14:00:43 <andythenorth> peter1138: is it version from bananas? or nightly?
14:00:48 <andythenorth> nightly has some stinking problems
14:01:13 *** zachanima has joined #openttd
14:01:18 <Terkhen> I did not add much newgrfs to it... it needs the new scenario features to customize it
14:01:34 <Terkhen> which server? I would like to see and maybe play a bit :)
14:03:50 *** HerzogDeXtEr has joined #openttd
14:04:12 *** tycoondemon has joined #openttd
14:05:28 <Pikka> any road
14:05:32 <Pikka> I think it's well past bedtime
14:05:35 <Pikka> goodnight gentlemen
14:05:37 *** Pikka has quit IRC
14:05:44 <planetmaker> Terkhen, I know. osie is nice ;-)
14:06:17 <Terkhen> does it also mentions the mess I did while trying opengfx+ landscape? :P
14:06:20 <planetmaker> I haven't yet decided on a server. I'd talk to V453000 about it ;-)
14:06:27 <planetmaker> Terkhen, nope ;-)
14:06:30 <planetmaker> just the current state
14:06:40 <V453000> ? :)
14:06:54 <Terkhen> the gamelog is quite long, I tried a lot of combinations and saved after deciding on one
14:07:07 <planetmaker> <-- V453000
14:07:11 <Terkhen> I have a newgrf-less version too
14:07:22 <planetmaker> those two are fine with me ;-)
14:07:36 <Terkhen> ok :)
14:08:31 <V453000> massive flat map :|
14:10:24 <Terkhen> the big mountains are at the east, the western part is quite flat
14:11:02 <V453000> it is all flat, the mountains are so smooth that the hillness doesnt really apply _
14:11:04 <V453000> :(
14:11:27 <planetmaker> would make for an SML game ;-)
14:11:30 <planetmaker> or SRNW
14:11:38 <planetmaker> or... chaos!
14:11:50 <V453000> it might be realistic, but I would not play it myself
14:12:17 *** DOUK has joined #openttd
14:12:18 <V453000> pm: either of those still is nicer with hills, particularly chaos ;)
14:12:57 <planetmaker> chaos might be
14:14:03 <planetmaker> V453000, we've had very nice games on pretty flat maps, too
14:14:04 <V453000> what I seek in scenarios (and none has it as far as I know), is something special, something the terragen does not give you. For example, I once did a scenario with a town on a super steep hill. The player had to supply the town with supplies that were on the coast, and weight multiplier was high
14:14:22 <andythenorth> 'design'
14:14:23 <andythenorth> :D
14:14:24 <planetmaker> V453000, wasteland ;-)
14:14:28 <V453000> but when I have a map and say "okay, terragen could have made something more interesting" ... then ... bah
14:14:37 <planetmaker> but that might be cargodist only. Not sure
14:14:42 <Terkhen> reality is boring :P
14:15:02 <andythenorth> I've made scenarios like 'big river'
14:15:10 <andythenorth> should be obvious what that one is :P
14:15:38 <V453000> for example the first OSQC osai made was totally awesome, because it was something you cannot get from a heightmap or a generator
14:15:49 <planetmaker> yep
14:15:51 <V453000> lots of some quests, lots of problems, and so on
14:16:04 <V453000> which is what all other scenarios miss, and which is why I do not play them
14:16:09 <andythenorth> shame there's no way to script things like town growth, industry opening etc
14:16:38 <andythenorth> probably never going to happen, would screw with too much other stuff
14:16:59 <Terkhen> V453000: you might like geogen
14:17:15 <andythenorth> an AI with money cheat would be a bit like a scenario scripting engine...
14:17:24 <V453000> I like terra genesis as it is ... without the variety distribution :)
14:17:49 <andythenorth> someone was going to fix terra genesis?
14:18:00 <Terkhen> geogen has some scripts that generate different types of heightmaps
14:18:14 <Terkhen> islands, archipielagos, "crater" maps and so on
14:18:17 <planetmaker> andythenorth, a scripting of towns or so... is envisionable and IMHO not out-of-question. But it's not a small thing and free for the taking to come up with a scenario script engine
14:19:10 *** douknoukem has quit IRC
14:21:22 <yorick> Terkhen: I remember seeing something like geogen when I went to delft recently
14:22:21 <andythenorth> NARS needs narrow gauge :o
14:22:30 <planetmaker> V453000, while I completely agree with "the more mountainous and fjord-like a map, the merrier", it should not necessarily mean that we always use such maps. I've had pretty nice PS games on rather flat tropical maps, too
14:22:53 <planetmaker> Would make for a good noob game :-P
14:22:55 <V453000> true
14:23:15 <V453000> the size is more of a problem then ... 512x1024 just is too much imo
14:23:24 <planetmaker> it's border-line, yes.
14:23:49 <V453000> even 512x512 is very big nowadays
14:24:01 <planetmaker> well. It'd be something different then ;-)
14:24:25 <V453000> it is not about different, but about a dead game where people just have too much to build
14:24:26 <planetmaker> And yes, I know and agree. And it's for good reasons.
14:25:14 <planetmaker> But a 0.5M tiles map won't be a 'dead' game'. Building ML is quick
14:25:15 * andythenorth has just started a flat tropic map
14:25:18 <andythenorth> with a lot of water
14:25:19 <planetmaker> and you don't need more stations
14:25:28 <Terkhen> I usually play flat because I'm lazy :P
14:25:35 <andythenorth> Terkhen: you miss so much fun :P
14:25:39 <planetmaker> you just can aford less trains, though due to CPU limits
14:25:52 <andythenorth> I have allowed FIRS farms to be totally evil on steep slopes
14:25:53 <V453000> I will think about it ;)
14:26:21 <Terkhen> andythenorth: nice :)
14:26:42 <planetmaker> sweet, andythenorth ! :-)
14:26:54 <planetmaker> Finally I can create a real Norwegian fjord scenario
14:27:07 <andythenorth> they've been like this for a while :)
14:27:15 <andythenorth> most of them can build on steep slopes
14:27:15 <Terkhen> that would be interesting to play :)
14:27:20 <planetmaker> Where farms could only be reached by means of a rope ladder
14:27:27 <andythenorth> it makes building stations tricky
14:27:39 <andythenorth> and because FIRS farms typically need 3 stations...
14:27:40 <andythenorth> it's hard :P
14:27:53 <planetmaker> :-) just build heliports :-P
14:28:10 *** roboboy has quit IRC
14:28:40 <Terkhen> distant stations?
14:29:11 <planetmaker> well, with that, there's no need for heliports then.
14:29:50 <Terkhen> but distant stations are boring
14:30:00 <planetmaker> most often: yes
14:33:46 <yorick> why is there a src/ai/ai.hpp.sq
14:34:36 <andythenorth> can you build heliports on steep slopes?
14:34:48 <planetmaker> nope
14:35:00 *** Osai has quit IRC
14:35:01 <planetmaker> there's virtually nothing which can be built there
14:35:19 <andythenorth> non-drive through rv stops?
14:35:28 <andythenorth> see - it's evil :D
14:35:29 *** Osai has joined #openttd
14:35:41 <planetmaker> andythenorth, evil is different ;-)
14:36:00 <planetmaker> evil would be to make sure that the surrounding tiles within r=3 are also steep slopes :-P
14:36:14 <andythenorth> ho
14:36:16 <andythenorth> yes
14:36:17 <andythenorth> indeed
14:37:15 <yorick> what is a paused openttd using 3% cpu for?
14:37:23 <Terkhen> GUI
14:37:38 <yorick> server
14:37:42 <Terkhen> no clue :)
14:37:59 <yorick> someone would have to profile it

14:44:21 <yorick> it can use select() and friends to check the network connections

14:44:59 *** DJNekkid has joined #openttd
14:47:12 <Terkhen> you can configure the number of users required for unpausing the game IIRC
14:48:02 <yorick> but it's always more than 1
14:48:23 <yorick> or 0, in which case it should always be paused
14:48:41 <yorick> unpause* unless manual pause
14:48:42 <peter1138> yes, you could, but that's not how the dedicated server works
14:49:29 <peter1138> (because it's based on a game engine loop which generally don't idle)
14:49:54 <yorick> ok then, thanks peter1138 and also maybe Terkhen

18:17:53 *** KenjiE20 has quit IRC
