09:27:50 <JVassie> are we planning to be as extensive with OBB as we are with DR/DB/DBAG?
09:36:49 <dihedral> thank you peter1138, i'll take that as a compliment ^^

10:30:57 <Eddi|zuHause> JVassie: if you take out all DRG/DB engines, ÖBB needs to be a complete playable set
10:32:27 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, JVassie would we want a parameter for each epoch and 'region'?
10:32:45 <planetmaker> Or just epoch1: none/core/all
10:32:58 <planetmaker> rather epoch 1+2
10:33:24 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: each epoch would get a parameter for the region: none/prussia/saxony/bavaria/austria/all
10:33:29 <Eddi|zuHause> or similar
10:33:31 <planetmaker> and then epoch 3-5 West, East, Austrian separate in none, core and extended?
10:33:45 <Eddi|zuHause> or, each company in an individual grf
10:33:53 <planetmaker> that's quite a huge parameter matrix
10:34:03 <planetmaker> each company a separate NewGRF... not sure
10:34:33 <planetmaker> at least not for the old one where there's not too many (afaik). Maybe I'm wrong
10:35:13 <Terkhen> lots of trains? :P
10:35:26 <planetmaker> Terkhen: none / core / all ;-)
10:35:31 <planetmaker> with core = default IMHO
10:35:42 <Eddi|zuHause> individual grfs would be the most flexible
10:35:59 <planetmaker> yes. But a NewGRF with like 5 engines... that's a PITA, too
10:36:46 <Eddi|zuHause> each GRF covers an area of ~40 years, with about 10 (core) to 20 (extended) engines
10:37:11 <planetmaker> yes... But for each of those companies?
10:37:27 <Eddi|zuHause> yes
10:37:51 <planetmaker> I think that's too many NewGRFs. And too many engines then as 'core'
10:38:16 <planetmaker> It's like... 6 NewGRFs * 2 to 3 epochs
10:38:22 <planetmaker> or more
10:38:31 <Eddi|zuHause> each company needs its own "core" set
10:39:02 <planetmaker> I don't think so.
10:39:25 <Eddi|zuHause> i do.
10:39:30 <planetmaker> For the early ones it IMHO would be better to merge a few companies
10:39:38 <Eddi|zuHause> it doesn't make a lot of sense to mix companies
10:41:03 <planetmaker> like Saxonian and Wurtembergian each an extra set? Nah...
10:41:23 <planetmaker> It makes sense for DRG, DR (East), DB (West) and maybe DBAG
10:41:24 <Eddi|zuHause> they have not really anything in common
10:41:53 <Yexo> what about having 1 parameter per epoch with values: none / core / all / only prussia / only saxony / only bavaria / only austria ?
10:42:03 <Yexo> that would make 5 parameters in total (assuming 5 epochs)
10:42:05 <planetmaker> that's something which I though
10:42:07 <planetmaker> t
10:42:44 <planetmaker> But probably it's better then to use two parameters:
10:43:01 <planetmaker> epchoX: none, all / only XY / only YZ / ...
10:43:13 <planetmaker> and 'use core / extended' as separate one
10:43:39 <Eddi|zuHause> core/extended would be a global option applying to all epochs
10:43:45 <planetmaker> yes
10:44:15 <Yexo> say you only want prussia engines in epoch 1
10:44:24 <Yexo> would there be a difference between core and all?
10:44:28 <planetmaker> epoch1: only prussia
10:44:34 <planetmaker> epoch != 1: none
10:44:39 <planetmaker> engines: all
10:44:43 <planetmaker> maybe, yes
10:45:24 <Yexo> I'd rather say we make the grf have enough engines per company to make it usable but not more.
10:45:26 <planetmaker> I guess it depends on what engines people dig out from the past and which get drawn ;-)
10:45:43 <Yexo> than if you enable multiple companies there would be very similar engines, so "core" would mean only one of the similar ones
10:45:46 <planetmaker> initially I'm all for not going for the extended thing
10:46:25 <planetmaker> it's (at least initially) enough drawing work to get all base engines for each region and epoch done
10:46:37 <planetmaker> not to speak of the wagons
10:47:05 <Yexo> planetmaker: but if epoch 1 is useful with only prussia engines, but also useful with only saxony engines, there is bound to be very similar engines in the prussia en saxony sets
10:47:21 <planetmaker> yes, that's probably true
10:47:24 <Yexo> which means enabling both prussia and saxony leads to duplicate engines
10:47:35 <planetmaker> but it means you can play a nice scenario :-)
10:47:38 <Yexo> so I think "core" should only select one of the two engines in case that happens
10:47:43 <Yexo> "all" could then select both
10:48:03 <Yexo> so "all" would just be a combination of all engines that can also be found using other options, just not at the same time
10:48:14 <Eddi|zuHause> another category: "mix", "core", "ext": each company has an individually playable "core", and one of the similar ones through all companies will get "mix" flag
10:48:31 <planetmaker> probably a good choice
10:49:20 <planetmaker> on a tangent: Eddi|zuHause, you should sweet talk mb into your new track scheme. I like it and it makes sense and is not that difficult to support
10:49:29 <Eddi|zuHause> so when choosing "core" and "all" as parameter, only the "mix" engines appear
10:49:47 <planetmaker> though NML will need either parameters to accept LABELS or it needs a num2tring function ;-)
10:49:58 <Eddi|zuHause> when choosing "core" and "only X", then the "core" engines will appear
10:50:26 <planetmaker> yes, makes sense
10:51:03 <Yexo> planetmaker: yes, railtypetable support in nml needs more work
10:51:22 <planetmaker> not really. AFAIK it only needs num2string.
10:51:27 <planetmaker> Hold on for the code ;-)
10:52:07 <planetmaker> <-- so that we remember
10:52:15 <Eddi|zuHause> NFO doesn't care whether the label is an integer or 4 characters
10:52:49 *** Vikthor has joined #openttd
10:53:22 <Yexo> Eddi|zuHause: but nfo doesn't store the label and assign the index in the table as value for later reference
10:54:28 <planetmaker> <-- railtype checks for this set
10:55:09 <planetmaker> and engines would get their natural track assigned one of the classes you, Eddi|zuHause, defined
10:55:29 <planetmaker> that file as is compiles
10:55:57 <planetmaker> but assigning the tracktype_classA (or other) to a train in the action0 block will still fail
10:56:28 <planetmaker> and I failed (long ago, though) to implement a reasonable num2string routine in NML
10:57:19 <Yexo> planetmaker: I was thinking of letting nml support something like this:
10:57:35 <Yexo> only the first id of each line would be useful in the code
10:58:02 <Yexo> so if you use EMED and EMED was not available i'd be rewritten to DBbe and if that wasn't available either to ELRL
10:58:17 <planetmaker> interesting idea. Would be nice
10:58:30 <planetmaker> I'd switch the DBXY and NuTracks labels though ;-)
10:59:14 <planetmaker> probably like [DBan, RLOW, RAIL] is easier to implement than the given syntax?
10:59:20 <Yexo> sure
10:59:25 <Yexo> was just a quick example
10:59:28 <planetmaker> :-)

11:15:50 *** HerzogDeXtEr1 has joined #openttd
11:19:42 *** Markk has quit IRC
11:21:01 <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: how about if railtype translation table works like this: "INTERNAL_LABEL: LABEL1 => LABEL2 => LABEL3 ..."
11:21:16 *** HerzogDeXtEr has quit IRC
11:21:23 <Eddi|zuHause> then "INTERNAL_LABEL" would be completely separate
11:22:09 <Yexo> that looks good
11:22:14 *** Markk has joined #openttd
11:22:43 <Yexo> INTERNAL_LABEL: [LABEL1, LABEL2, LABEL3], would be more consistent with the rest of the syntax though
11:22:57 <Eddi|zuHause> that's fine ;)
11:25:52 <planetmaker> yes, that's probably a very good solution
11:36:26 <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: at that point, the labels should probably be "ABCD", and not ABCD
11:36:59 <Yexo> Eddi|zuHause: they can already be both

12:23:19 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: naming scheme: i propose "initial name (company/region, new name(s))"
12:24:17 <Eddi|zuHause> e.g. "Baureihe S3 (preuß., BR 13.0)"
12:24:54 <Eddi|zuHause> or "Baureihe E10 (DB, BR 110)"
12:25:47 <Eddi|zuHause> or "Baureihe E94 (DRG, BR 194 (DB), BR 254 (DR))"
12:26:17 *** Alpaca has joined #openttd
12:26:33 <Alpaca> Hello
12:26:39 <Eddi|zuHause> (they also had an ÖBB-number, which i would need to look up)
12:27:32 <peter1138> who what where why when?
12:28:08 <Alpaca> I seem unable to alter the GRF sets in any of my scenarios, anyone else had this problem? (1.1.1)
12:28:22 <Eddi|zuHause> Alpaca: that is intended.
12:29:16 <planetmaker> I'm fine with that naming scheme, Eddi|zuHause
12:29:18 <Yexo> Alpaca: see
12:29:20 <Alpaca> is there a way around it? I made a world map with about 250 towns on a heightmap that need placing and naming, but the GRFs need tweaking
12:29:33 <peter1138> you replacing dbset or something?
12:29:39 <planetmaker> Alpaca, no newgrf change will name your towns
12:29:41 <Eddi|zuHause> or something ;)
12:29:50 <Alpaca> *looking*
12:30:05 <planetmaker> or something, indeed ;-)
12:30:42 <peter1138> what something
12:31:08 <planetmaker> peter1138, if it were a baby we would still be having sex ;-)
12:31:26 <planetmaker> sorry for the bad metaphor :-P
12:31:28 <peter1138> SOUNDS GOOD TO ME
12:31:58 <planetmaker> but thus we don't yet quite know what. But... let's call it 'Central European Train Set'
12:32:27 <peter1138> LET'S TALK ABOUT SETS, BABY
12:33:13 <peter1138> (god that was a terrible song)
12:33:36 <Terkhen> :D
12:33:45 <Eddi|zuHause> haha :p
12:33:51 <Noldo> unions and intersections?
12:34:37 <peter1138> oh damn, CETS, o/c
12:38:24 <Alpaca> found the solution (eventually), thanks! Now I don't have to remake maps to tweak sets
12:44:04 *** Alpaca has quit IRC
12:46:45 <Eddi|zuHause> hm... sorting for "T##" values is rubbish...
12:48:45 <planetmaker> what "T##" values?
12:50:19 <Eddi|zuHause> "short name" column
12:53:29 <planetmaker> the 'normal' BR would need that: a 'BR'. But probably even then it won't get much more usable

13:12:48 <JVassie> back
13:14:24 <JVassie> this buisness of epochs and parameters is confusing
13:14:46 <JVassie> can we use a parameter as a bit mask?
13:17:00 <JVassie> also planetmaker whats this about needing to sweet talk MB?
13:17:04 <JVassie> railtypes?
13:19:50 <JVassie> Eddi|zuHause?
13:20:51 <planetmaker> JVassie, parameters as a bitmask yes or no is so 1990. We have a parameter GUI for that
13:21:14 <planetmaker> Having a user fiddle with a bitmask is nasty - even if internally it's elegant.
13:21:19 <JVassie> heh
13:21:23 <planetmaker> And railtypes... yes.
13:21:29 <JVassie> what about railtypes?
13:22:07 <planetmaker> the ones used by this set. We discussed it... axle weight makes most sense.
13:22:16 <planetmaker> not used by, but preferred by
13:22:42 <JVassie> Cant remember being here when you discussed it
13:22:48 <JVassie> are there details down anywherE?
13:24:51 <planetmaker> yes... in the German forums ;-)
13:25:20 *** Pixa has quit IRC
13:25:21 <planetmaker> let me look
13:27:16 <planetmaker>
13:28:09 <planetmaker> that's along the lines of mb's idea, but uses 'official' rail class names rather than half made-up ones
13:28:31 <Belugas> hello
13:28:41 <planetmaker> hi Belugas
13:28:50 <Belugas> hi sir :)
13:37:13 <peter1138> hm
13:37:46 <Terkhen> the posts from uzziah are a bit strange :)
13:39:40 *** keky___ has joined #openttd
13:39:42 <planetmaker> I think it's a spammer
13:40:32 <Terkhen> me too, but I have no proof :P
13:40:45 <planetmaker> ^^
13:41:15 <keky___> header ?
13:42:10 <planetmaker> hm?
13:45:24 <Yexo> agree tgat uzziah is most likely a spammer
13:45:49 <planetmaker> JVassie, I added an issue to cets where the track class issue is raised
13:46:03 <planetmaker> thus it's not available for general reference ;-)
13:48:36 <JVassie> :p
13:49:17 <JVassie> woah thats a jumbled :walloftext:
13:49:52 <planetmaker> not anymore ;-)
13:50:40 <planetmaker> I like the idea of those 5 track types. They probably would make for a good game
13:51:06 <planetmaker> For now I'd just design the train set with that in mind and care about the tracks completely separate
13:51:47 <JVassie> thanks for the readability :D
13:52:22 <JVassie> Streckenklasse === railtype?
13:52:42 <planetmaker> rail class, but yes
13:53:12 <planetmaker> that's the official word in German for track classification
13:53:36 <keky___> check the header, then you see often it's a spammer or not
13:53:49 <planetmaker> in OpenTTD terms it would boil down to a tracktype
13:54:16 <planetmaker> keky___, in forum postings? There's no header... just a signature.
13:55:14 <keky___> ah ok
13:55:49 <keky___> ip from china or or then often a spammer too :P
13:55:50 <JVassie> gotcha planetmaker
13:56:20 <keky___> no
13:56:26 <keky___> only geoip make it good
13:57:02 <keky___> afk
13:57:13 <planetmaker> well, we also have people from China and Russia, so that's no criterion. But there are IP lists...
13:57:17 <JVassie> so planetmaker, it builds on the use of just max speed as a factor for choosing a type
13:57:34 <planetmaker> JVassie, nope. Exactly that not ;-)
13:57:37 <planetmaker> On the axle weight
13:58:05 <JVassie> my english wasnt that good :p
13:58:12 <JVassie> let me rephrase
13:58:19 <peter1138> yours was fine
13:58:24 <peter1138> otoh, "exactly that not" isn't
13:58:32 <JVassie> planet is german, im english
13:58:35 <JVassie> i dotn have an excuse xD
13:58:42 <peter1138> yes i know
13:58:57 <JVassie> rephrased -> so, in addition to just max speed, the axle weight comes into play when choosing which rail type to build
13:59:01 <JVassie> better planetmaker? :D
13:59:18 <JVassie> i wasnt sure if we were sayign axle wieght out loud or not, but you did, so.. :D
13:59:18 <peter1138> plenty of english people get english wrong...
13:59:23 <JVassie> i no
13:59:25 <JVassie> :p
13:59:58 <JVassie> mysql joins + multidimensional arrays, plus duplicates
14:00:02 <JVassie> != a fun problem to solve
14:00:32 <planetmaker> JVassie, the plan would be to allow the heavy trains to run only on tracks which support their axle weight.
14:00:36 <peter1138> mysql has joins these days? hah
14:01:07 <planetmaker> Additionally tracks also have a speed limit, but that's no (direct) criterion to allow or disallow an engine or waggon on a certain track type
14:01:20 <JVassie> peter1138: since like forever
14:01:21 <JVassie> :p
14:01:31 <planetmaker> peter1138, how would an Englishman phrase "exactly that not"?
14:01:37 <JVassie> exactly the opposite
14:01:51 <JVassie> or,
14:01:54 <JVassie> precisely not that
14:01:55 <planetmaker> well... it's not the opposite. There's no opposite ;-)
14:02:14 <planetmaker> hm, interesting :-) thanks
14:02:17 <JVassie> np
14:02:32 <JVassie> you rarely see 'that not' in that order in english
14:02:44 <JVassie> afaik its always 'not that'
14:03:19 * JVassie likes PHPs unique_array( function
14:03:22 <JVassie> *()
14:03:25 <peter1138> :S
14:03:36 <JVassie> ?
14:03:41 <JVassie> confused sir?
14:04:21 <peter1138> no, i'm just supplying empathy
14:04:24 <peter1138> you're using php
14:04:27 <peter1138> you're using mysql
14:04:31 <peter1138> you need a double does
14:04:33 <peter1138> *dose
14:05:06 <Yexo> only that function is called array_unique
14:06:30 <peter1138> (oh, and it sounds like you're selecting data from the db, then filtering it outside the db, which is not good
14:06:34 <peter1138> )

14:10:07 <JVassie> tis php 4 though :(
14:10:25 <JVassie> i dont get to chose the program language

14:51:13 <JVassie> gah cant get my head around this
14:51:15 <JVassie> :(
15:01:48 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, sounds good. Where do we get the sprites from?
15:01:56 <JVassie> FML
15:01:57 <JVassie> *cry*
15:02:49 <JVassie> $q = "SELECT tblCompanies.companyID, tblCompanies.companyName, tblCompanies.townCity, tblCompanies.emailAddress

15:03:24 *** Juo_ has joined #openttd
15:04:40 <JVassie> problem is, that query is being run in a foreach loop on $postcodeid
15:06:15 <Eddi|zuHause> why the hell would you do a foreach loop when you can do a database query?
15:06:25 <JVassie> thats what im strugglign to do
15:06:29 <JVassie> get rid of the foreach loop
15:06:33 <JVassie> and integrate it in
15:06:43 <JVassie> i have an array of postcodeids to work with
15:07:22 <JVassie> thoughts Eddi|zuHause ?
15:07:51 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, ask VoyagerOne?
15:07:59 <Eddi|zuHause> my thoughts are elsewhere right now... maybe ask me when i return later

15:08:36 <planetmaker> yes
15:09:11 *** Juo has quit IRC
15:09:26 <JVassie> Ameecher said he might draw something if it takes his fancy
15:09:33 <Eddi|zuHause> if we go with long vehicles, we need 12 (24) views of every vehicle, in 15° steps. i thought maybe we should use blender to render the shape, and then do pixel-touchups based on that
15:09:36 <JVassie> but wont be contributign a whole bunch
15:09:50 <planetmaker> I haven't done an in-depth analysis of his sprites, but from what I saw they look quite ok - and he's dedicated to drawing realistic vehicles
15:10:22 <Eddi|zuHause> instead of the usual 4 (8)
15:10:33 <planetmaker> what's the step-size of your test grf?
15:10:45 <Eddi|zuHause> the test grf has 15°
15:10:56 <planetmaker> (and I'm still interested in the code - however untidy it may be ;-) )
15:11:05 <planetmaker> ok, then 15° is a good choice
15:11:30 *** Zuu has joined #openttd
15:12:19 <planetmaker> should I write him a message?
15:12:35 <planetmaker> or you want to persue other options first, Eddi|zuHause ?
15:12:44 <Eddi|zuHause> can't harm to ask ;)
15:14:17 <JVassie> are we 100% set on long vehicles?
15:14:42 <Eddi|zuHause> JVassie: would be a unique thing this set offers over all the other stuff out there
15:14:47 <JVassie> true point
15:14:50 <JVassie> in _ view
15:14:57 <JVassie> 24m = 64px right?
15:15:01 <Eddi|zuHause> yes
15:15:38 *** Neon has joined #openttd
15:15:42 <JVassie> a BR Mk. 4 carriage is 23m
15:15:57 <JVassie> 23.4m includign couplings
15:16:19 <JVassie> height is 3.79 (call it 3.8) metres
15:16:38 <Eddi|zuHause> west german post-war wagons (UIC-X) are ~ 26.5m and east german (UIC-Y) are ~ 24.5m
15:16:55 <JVassie> so the height would be 10.133333 px
15:16:57 <Eddi|zuHause> pre-war around 18-20m
15:16:59 <JVassie> at the same scale
15:17:15 <Eddi|zuHause> JVassie: no, height/width need different scales
15:17:31 <JVassie> atm the coach side is 8px
15:17:35 <Eddi|zuHause> really should not exceed 8px each
15:17:39 <JVassie> from bottom to bottom of roof
15:17:49 <JVassie> thing is
15:17:59 <JVassie> an 8*64px coach looks super out of scale
15:18:04 <Eddi|zuHause> in - view it's like 8px of height, 4px of roof
15:18:15 <JVassie> cause youve doubled the length, but not increased the heigh at all
15:18:19 <JVassie> *height
15:18:40 <Eddi|zuHause> JVassie: that's because you're too used to TTD's screwed up scale
15:18:57 <JVassie> also true
15:19:07 <JVassie> however 64*8 px is neither TTD nor real life
15:19:12 <JVassie> were 'inventing' another scale
15:19:50 <Eddi|zuHause> yes. it's impossible to get the scale "right"
15:19:50 <JVassie> can we not afford 2 extra pixels of 'coach side' height?
15:20:36 <Eddi|zuHause> well, make a few case studies to convince me ;)
15:20:56 <JVassie> doign so
15:20:58 <JVassie> ;)
15:22:09 <Eddi|zuHause> take the grf from here, decode it, and replace the sprites with your own (there are a few doubled, so just copy-paste those):
15:22:16 <Eddi|zuHause> 12 different sprites in total
15:22:19 <JVassie> im just gonna do __ view quickly
15:22:27 <JVassie> have some sprites already half done
15:22:34 <JVassie> id extended a 32px coach to 64px
15:27:28 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: if you think there are too many, we can discuss taking a few out
15:30:19 <JVassie> Eddi|zuHause:
15:30:20 <JVassie>
15:30:28 <JVassie> top to bottom
15:30:30 <JVassie> 64*8
15:30:32 <JVassie> 64*9
15:30:34 <JVassie> 64*10
15:30:44 <JVassie> the y value is from bottom of raisl to bottom of roof
15:30:47 <JVassie> *rails
15:30:52 <JVassie> add 4 for overall y value
15:32:01 <JVassie> planetmaker: your thoughts?
15:32:09 <peter1138> long sprites, eh?
15:32:14 <Eddi|zuHause> might reduce the roof to 3 pixels, or remove the lowest line with the wheels. but need to see how it behaves ingame
15:32:44 <JVassie> would look bad if we reduced roof (which is essentially vehicle width)
15:32:50 <JVassie> hmm
15:33:03 <JVassie> is 12 overall the absolute maximum?
15:33:48 <Eddi|zuHause> i mean we get enough glitches with bridges and tunnels as it is, extending sprite height is just asking for trouble
15:34:00 <Eddi|zuHause> be aware that catenary is only 11 pixels high
15:34:15 <Eddi|zuHause> and we need double decker wagons with increased height
15:34:39 <JVassie> oh feck
15:34:41 <JVassie> >.>
15:35:01 <Eddi|zuHause>
15:35:18 <JVassie> nice :p
15:35:57 <Eddi|zuHause> JVassie: we can say 26m=64px, if that makes it easier for you
15:36:41 <JVassie> hmm
15:36:47 <Eddi|zuHause> @calc 26/4
15:36:47 <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause: 6.5
15:36:52 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, do you have (again) the issue with your test grf, please?
15:37:09 <Eddi|zuHause>
15:37:24 <JVassie> another nice looking livery we could investigate xD
15:37:25 <JVassie>
15:37:36 <JVassie>
15:37:38 <JVassie> even
15:37:59 <JVassie> also the OBB railjet looks super slick
15:38:45 <Eddi|zuHause> let's get the shape right, worry about liveries later ;)
15:39:34 <planetmaker> nvm, found it
15:39:39 <JVassie> xD
15:40:09 <Eddi|zuHause> JVassie: sizes:
15:40:19 <peter1138> so are you doing 8 or 32bpp?
15:40:24 <planetmaker> 8
15:40:26 <peter1138> :(
15:40:37 <JVassie> long ass mothers
15:40:49 <planetmaker> well, if someone does also the 32bpp sprites, I'd not mind doing that, too
15:40:50 <JVassie> i guess we could keep the renders for a 32bpp later on
15:40:56 <planetmaker> But it'll need 8bpp in any case
15:41:12 <peter1138> image -> mode -> 8bpp :p
15:41:21 <planetmaker> *If* someone renders the sprites - then we could do 32bpp from the start. But personally I'd not consider it a requirement
15:41:37 <Eddi|zuHause> i played with that thought
15:41:41 <peter1138> why do people think 32bpp == rendering?
15:42:07 <Eddi|zuHause> peter1138: other way around: rendering = easier way of getting 12/24 views
15:42:10 <planetmaker> peter1138, whatever
15:42:26 <peter1138> Eddi|zuHause, sure. but people automatically think making 32bpp requires rendering.
15:42:27 <planetmaker> it's IMHO up to the artist. But yes... with 24 views that might be easier.
15:42:56 <Ammler> some render for 8bpp too
15:43:20 <peter1138> yeah. rendering is a completely separate issue.
15:43:52 *** MNIM has joined #openttd
15:44:32 <Ammler> hmm, you skipped the sbb?
15:44:51 <Eddi|zuHause> Ammler: nobody volunteered yet ;)
15:45:14 <JVassie> DR/DB/DBAG is pretty much done
15:45:16 <Ammler> ok, just thought beceause JVassie already had a partial sbb set
15:45:29 <JVassie> I have some sbb/swiss graphics indeed
15:47:48 <MNIM> hello.
15:49:11 <MNIM> i've got a question.
15:49:50 <MNIM> I've found some custom content that i mean to include in my OTTD game, to be exact, this:
15:50:25 <MNIM> the issue however is that it is in .diff format, and i have no idea what i would need to do to use that
15:50:54 <MNIM> i'm only used to the simple .grf system
15:51:08 <planetmaker> that's not an add-on, it's a source-code patch
15:51:10 *** Lakie has joined #openttd
15:51:10 <SpComb> you need to patch and compile
15:51:25 <MNIM> hmmmmmh.
15:51:36 <planetmaker> thus you need to get the source code, get the development tools, and then compile
15:51:51 <planetmaker> and... you'll most likely need to update the patch as it's about 3 years old
15:51:59 <Ammler> well, maybe you also need to update the patch, very advanced stuff :-)
15:52:04 <planetmaker> thus it won't apply to the current source code without some coding work
15:52:18 <MNIM> ouch.
15:52:23 <planetmaker> Ammler, the GUI code changed...
15:52:40 <MNIM> nobody knows of any more recent content that would do the same?
15:52:49 <planetmaker> maybe nobody knows
15:52:58 <planetmaker> @seen nobody
15:52:58 <DorpsGek> planetmaker: I have not seen nobody.
15:52:58 <Ammler> MNIM: you could ask chili to add it to his patchpack
15:53:11 <planetmaker> I know a 3 month more recent version :-P
15:53:34 <Ammler> I guess, It might not be hard to write that feature from scratch
15:53:39 <MNIM> well, i assume that won't save me.
15:53:40 <planetmaker>
15:53:47 <Ammler> basically just needs to remove a if
15:54:19 <MNIM> hmmmmmh.
15:54:30 <planetmaker> but the game is now at r22500. Thus you can judge: when that patch was written, OpenTTD was about 3/5 of its current age
15:54:58 <Eddi|zuHause> try to put on trousers from when you were 3/5 of your current age :p
15:55:06 <planetmaker> no problem :-P
15:55:06 <MNIM> hahaha
15:55:12 <MNIM> not for me
15:55:34 <MNIM> since that would make me... 11?
15:55:43 <MNIM> nah. that won't fit.
15:55:44 <planetmaker> @calc 11*5/3

15:57:15 <MNIM> Q.E.D.
15:57:38 <planetmaker> MNIM, you can place rivers in the SE
15:57:47 <planetmaker> scenario editor
15:58:21 <MNIM> I know, but i like to place 'em during my sandbox games
15:58:31 <planetmaker> build canals ;-)
15:58:52 <Eddi|zuHause> rename file to scn, load in SE, rename back, play on
15:58:54 <MNIM> i'm more of the 'model trains' kind of ottd-ers
15:59:09 <Eddi|zuHause> could use a cheat "place rivers ingame"
15:59:18 <planetmaker> you're not alone with that, MNIM ;-)
15:59:29 <planetmaker> Not sure it's a 'cheat', Eddi|zuHause
15:59:53 <MNIM> pretty much, for something thought up so long ago i'm surprised nobody thought to include that into the game yet
15:59:53 <planetmaker> But yes... I don't quite recall the reason why it was NOT included.
15:59:55 <Ammler> yeah, it is very bad implemented, the dev who added rivers didn't just "forget" about that, he also added a evil rule, so you can't build rivers with patched client on a server ;-)
16:00:05 <planetmaker> IIRC it was along the lines of 'players cannot build rivers'
16:00:14 <planetmaker> which in a way is... a realism argument
16:00:22 <JVassie> should be a cheat option tbh
16:00:31 <JVassie> allow creating rivers during game
16:00:33 <Eddi|zuHause> Ammler: you want to team up with luukland? :p

18:59:15 <TrueBrain> Zuu: try googling for OSX cross platform :P
19:01:14 <DGMurdockIII> how do i use it with openttd
19:01:38 <Zuu> DGMurdockIII: Windows or Linux or OSX?
19:01:47 <DGMurdockIII> windows
19:02:03 <Zuu> If you run the setup installer, it will ask if you want it to download + install OpenGFX
19:02:27 <DGMurdockIII> the setup for openttd
19:02:30 <Zuu> Yes
19:02:56 <Zuu> It might also contain on option to download OpenSFX from the installer though it is not necessary to get OpenTTD running.
19:03:24 <Zuu> Once you have got OpenTTD running, you can get most addons/extra content via the in-game online content system.

19:05:23 <Zuu> (OpenSFX is a sound set. OpenTTD ships with the soundset "NoSound" which is completely silent. If you want actual sound effects, you need OpenSFX (or original TTD sound files))

19:06:21 <FrankyJones> Goodday all! Anybody from holland arround to help me setting up a server... im out of sollutions... :)
19:06:44 <Zuu> Why do you need anyone from holland in an English only IRC channel?
19:06:50 <DGMurdockIII> i tryed playing this once before but i could not get my city to do aNYTHING
19:07:03 *** bryjen has joined #openttd
19:07:11 <Zuu> DGMurdockIII: OpenTTD is not a city simulation game.
19:07:18 <Zuu> It's a transport game.
19:07:26 <DGMurdockIII> ok
19:07:35 <FrankyJones> Ok your right... then some server help in English...?
19:07:47 <DGMurdockIII> so maby im missing the point on what im supported to do

19:09:36 <FrankyJones> Willing to setup a Openttd server non dedicated... I choose for setup server, internet (advert) and start the game... the server is not being added to the internet list and stays local (lan)... why?
19:10:19 <planetmaker> select 'internet' and not 'lan' in the server setup menu
19:10:22 <Zuu> Have you opened ports / port forwarding in your router + OS?
19:10:57 <Zuu> For both UDP and TCP.
19:11:29 <planetmaker> @ports
19:11:29 <DorpsGek> planetmaker: OpenTTD uses TCP and UDP port 3979 for server <-> client communication, UDP port 3978 for masterserver (advertise) communication (outbound), and TCP port 3978 for content service, a.k.a. BaNaNaS (outbound)
19:11:34 <Zuu> Your server will only show up on the server list if it can be reached from the outside by the master server.
19:11:46 <planetmaker> the server list can be checked on
19:11:53 <DGMurdockIII> (Zuu): would you be able to show me the basic using co-op
19:11:56 <FrankyJones> Ok thanks guys! Im gonna try this right now! Thanks!
19:12:54 <Zuu> DGMurdockIII: You could as well download + run an AI if you want to see someone building.
19:13:12 <Zuu> The GUI can't be teached via co-op.
19:13:41 <Zuu> Unless writing what is already documented in the wiki.
19:13:51 <DGMurdockIII> i want to know how to do the game right
19:14:03 <DGMurdockIII> i can figer out the gui myself
19:14:47 <Zuu> Download CluelessPlus and "I" will show you how to play :-p
19:15:05 <Zuu> (I'm the author of that AI)
19:15:24 <Zuu> Download PAXLink and "I" will show you how to get bankrupt :-D
19:15:26 <DGMurdockIII> ok
19:16:21 <DGMurdockIII> im downloading them
19:16:34 <DGMurdockIII> finshed
19:16:40 <Zuu> Go to AI Settings
19:16:48 <Zuu> In main menu
19:16:52 <DGMurdockIII> ok
19:17:12 <DGMurdockIII> then what
19:17:14 <Zuu> And select 2 (or more AIs) and also put the AIs into the AI slots instead of Random.
19:17:25 <Zuu> If you want to be sure to not get two of the same AI.
19:17:41 <Zuu> After you are done with AI config, you can start a new game.
19:17:56 <Zuu> However, you might want to enable the Slow setting in CluelessPlus.
19:17:59 <DGMurdockIII> i dont see the ai i downloaded

19:24:31 <doug713705> Hi all. I have setted up a dedicated server (version 1.1.1/linux debian) and I'd like to change some settings on the fly via rcon commands within a python script. Is it possible to connect to the server for this ? Which port do I have to use (3979/TCP, 3977/TCP, 3979/UDP) ?
19:25:07 <Zuu> leaving everything else on default should be okay. Mind that IIRC first AI start a year after you with the default settings.
19:25:54 <Zuu> That said, you can either fast-forward quickly past that year, or pull down the console and type "startai" and have it started directly even if you forgot to reduce that time.

20:06:20 <Terkhen> neither do I
20:06:28 <Terkhen> do I say that in my post?
20:06:33 <planetmaker> nope
20:06:59 <planetmaker> just makes copy&paste of code more difficult ;-)
20:07:11 <Terkhen> in my post "would make sense for us" means "less work trying to get all the people that did a sprite" :P
20:07:34 <Terkhen> I prefer GPL, and many contributions from other sets or some authors are in GPL already
20:07:49 <planetmaker> I think DanMacK's stance is 'my work is public domain'
20:08:23 <Terkhen> that's on my ToDo... checking if the authors on the list did any public comment regarding all of their work
20:08:47 <Terkhen> I'll make a note of that, although DanMack is still around :)

20:42:06 <Yexo> Game 2: epoch 34 I chose DB, amount CORE
20:42:17 <Yexo> Game 3: epoch 34 ALL, amount CORE
20:42:31 *** devilsadvocate has joined #openttd
20:42:32 <Yexo> will game 3 have all engines that appear in either game 1 or game 2?
20:42:44 <planetmaker> michi_cc: deed done
20:42:56 <JVassie> Yexo, guess so
20:42:59 <Yexo> if so, wouldn't that be too many engines for CORE?
20:43:07 <Yexo> if not, that's very confusing
20:43:12 <JVassie> lol
20:43:12 <JVassie> :p
20:43:14 <JVassie> lose-lose?
20:43:24 <JVassie> is 1847 too early?
20:43:31 <planetmaker> Yexo: core means to select the core engines of _each_ (sub) set
20:43:49 <planetmaker> 'mixed' means to chose a really minimal set
20:43:50 <JVassie> Yexo, they dont have to select core of multiple sub sets
20:44:06 <Yexo> planetmaker: so default is "mixed"?
20:44:15 <planetmaker> possibly that needs better naming. I'd make 'mixed' the default, yes
20:44:16 <Yexo> and default for all epochs would be "all"?
20:44:27 <Yexo> in that case it looks fine :)
20:44:40 <planetmaker> possibly... though what I pasted doesn't follow that.
20:44:50 <planetmaker> current default is all off, except prussian trains :-P
20:45:01 <Yexo> that sounds like a strange default :p
20:45:17 <planetmaker> rather from the desire to start with that
20:45:20 <JVassie> hehe
20:45:34 <JVassie> my defaults would be all, all, all, everything, extended, all, all, etc
20:45:36 <JVassie> :p
20:45:39 <planetmaker> thus... everything else... the core or extended set of 0 trains is still 0 ;-)
20:45:45 <michi_cc> planetmaker: There should be a new sheet now. Red text is eletric engine, black everything else. Background color is only for visual distinction.
20:46:33 <michi_cc> You can see the 1920s have several heavy cargo, but not much else.
20:46:55 <JVassie> remember the time spans are build dates not useage dates :)
20:47:01 <JVassie> but i see your point michi
20:47:21 <planetmaker> interesting, thanks, michi_cc :-)
20:47:35 <JVassie> <JVassie> is 1847 too early?
20:47:43 <planetmaker> they have the p8
20:47:59 <JVassie> p8 is 1906
20:48:25 <JVassie> current earliest is G3 and P2 both 1877
20:48:28 <planetmaker> important is 'what's available'
20:48:34 <planetmaker> not 'when introduced'
20:48:46 <michi_cc> JVassie: Yes, but the time span a player can buy an engine is the important one. Of course, the in-game time span must not necessarily be identical to the historical dates.
20:49:08 <JVassie> indeed michi
20:49:16 <JVassie> just making sure you knew the origin of the dates in the 2nd sheet
20:49:18 <JVassie> :)

20:52:18 <JVassie> SBB has a real nice spread of stuff
20:52:40 <planetmaker> Yep, the table is already quite impressive
20:53:40 <JVassie> intro dates span 1847-2012
20:54:04 <JVassie> right all modern SBB/SBB Cargo stuff is in
20:54:10 <JVassie> steamers are done
20:54:20 <JVassie> will do the old diesel and leccies later on
20:54:28 <JVassie> ta ra for now chaps
20:54:42 <planetmaker> michi_cc: when I look at the stats: then G12 and T20 are not much different...
20:55:20 <planetmaker> probably I'd leave out the T20
20:55:34 <planetmaker> but I'm blissfully ignorant of railway history
20:59:17 *** Neon has quit IRC
21:01:55 <Eddi|zuHause> we need some way to distinguish travel distance
21:02:07 <Eddi|zuHause> G12 for long distances, T20 for short distances
21:02:16 <michi_cc> planetmaker: I've changed the colors on that time line a bit, now all blue-ish stuff is axle weight <= 16t (i.e. track class A) and the red-ish (and the electrics) are higher axle weight
21:02:57 <michi_cc> From that there's a definite need for something with low axle weight starting from 1915 or so
21:03:04 <Eddi|zuHause> the buy-periods should probably get longer than the historic ones
21:03:05 <planetmaker> good point to add
21:03:06 <Yexo> Eddi|zuHause: not sure this is a good idea, but: trains that normally travel short distance: very high running cost, no running cost while at station
21:03:18 <Yexo> for trains that normally travel long distances: lower running cost, but same running cost at the station
21:03:53 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: I think we kick T20 from core
21:03:55 <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: something really evil would be "distance travelled since last service"
21:04:00 <Yexo> that way the "long distances" trains are penalized when they load too much (=too short routes) and the "short distance" trains are penalized when they travel too much (=high running cost not offset by time at station)
21:04:43 <Yexo> Eddi|zuHause: but that just makes you have to service trains a lot, which is imo a bad idea
21:04:46 <planetmaker> interesting idea, Yexo :-)
21:05:20 <andythenorth> these problems would be solvable with a cargo-aging cb per vehicle type
21:05:25 <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: i'd have something like "limit air distance between furthest stations in timetable"
21:05:30 <andythenorth> it would be both (a) good and (b) realistic :P
21:05:34 <Eddi|zuHause> but i don't think that'll be possible
21:05:37 *** Chris_Booth_ has joined #openttd
21:05:57 <Yexo> andythenorth: that would be useful for different wagons, not for different engines
21:06:09 <Yexo> and that's indeed not possible eddi
21:06:19 <Yexo> even the current limit for ships can be easily circumvented
21:06:21 *** `Fuco` has joined #openttd
21:06:47 <andythenorth> for engines, are such measures needed?
21:07:09 <andythenorth> it's probably solvable within spec
21:07:21 <andythenorth> just make engines for local service slower + cheaper
21:07:27 <Yexo> the discussion was about engines, not wagons
21:07:41 <Eddi|zuHause> there could be "refill" times like loading times
21:07:49 <Yexo> andy: but that means that "long distance" engines are also better for short routes
21:08:11 <andythenorth> not if they're insanely expensive?
21:08:17 * planetmaker considers T18 and G8 for core to keep engines for low axle weight tracks
21:08:38 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: how about: exchange T20 with T18?
21:08:58 <andythenorth> this issue is about PAX services?
21:09:03 <andythenorth> or all cargo?
21:09:04 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: definitely a win
21:09:45 <Eddi|zuHause> problem is: T18 is a passenger engine, T20 a cargo engine
21:09:50 <Eddi|zuHause> so they're not really comparable
21:09:58 <Eddi|zuHause> so T18 overlaps with T12 somewhat
21:10:42 <planetmaker> T20 isn't needed, there's two other similar cargo engines
21:10:50 *** Chris_Booth has quit IRC
21:10:50 *** Chris_Booth_ is now known as Chris_Booth
21:11:09 <planetmaker> the G12 is not that much different
21:12:01 <Eddi|zuHause> Txx engines are shorter than Gxx and Pxx
21:12:13 <Eddi|zuHause> because they don't have additional tender

21:12:47 <Terkhen> good night
21:13:00 *** Fuco has quit IRC
21:14:45 <planetmaker> good night Terkhen
21:16:06 <planetmaker> hm, there don't seem to be many engines with axle weigh < 16t in > 1915
21:16:15 <planetmaker> so not much to do there
21:16:35 <planetmaker> thus we simply need to extend the availability years for some light engines
21:16:50 <Eddi|zuHause> <16t will only be very local branch railways after 1920
21:17:38 <Eddi|zuHause> then most engines are doubled between <18t (e.g. BR 03) and >18t (e.g. BR 01)
21:17:46 <Eddi|zuHause> with very similar stats
21:18:05 <planetmaker> so that's the important barrier later on
21:18:12 <Eddi|zuHause> if designing for MB's track set, the >18t ones would be "core"
21:18:38 <planetmaker> ok
21:19:14 <planetmaker> I guess I'll follow Terkhen 's example for now, though...
21:19:20 <Eddi|zuHause> electric engines are almost always >18t
21:19:41 <planetmaker> so: core = heavy engines
21:19:45 <planetmaker> rather
21:19:47 <Eddi|zuHause> yes
21:19:50 <planetmaker> and extended: also branch?
21:19:52 <planetmaker> ok
21:20:07 <planetmaker> with that knowledge now I'll wave 'good night' :-)
21:20:25 <Eddi|zuHause> a few handpicked engines for <16t
21:20:36 <Eddi|zuHause> to keep branch railways alive
21:23:04 <Eddi|zuHause> there's no "reply to all" for PMs
21:24:40 <Eddi|zuHause> and i can't select recipients at all?!?
21:24:48 <Eddi|zuHause> wtf?
21:24:59 <Yexo> Eddi|zuHause: you can
21:25:04 <michi_cc> How about the G10 as a proper cargo engine for <16t?
21:25:04 <Eddi|zuHause> where?
21:25:06 <Yexo> top left, there is a box with "Usernames" as header
21:25:17 <Yexo> enter one username per line, than click "Add [To]"
21:25:30 <Eddi|zuHause> ah
21:25:39 <Eddi|zuHause> now that's a weird page layout
21:25:44 <Yexo> it certainly is
21:26:00 <Eddi|zuHause> i would expect that in the "To:" line
21:26:12 <Eddi|zuHause> above the subject

21:45:26 * MNIM refers to the obligatory inception demotivational
21:45:33 <MNIM> hmmmmh
21:46:31 <MNIM> is it possible to use TTRS with TBRS the TTRS road surfaces on the bridges, but the bridges from TBRS?
21:47:26 <MNIM> I can get it to use either TTRS roads and different roads on the bridges, or TTRS roads AND bridges
21:47:40 <MNIM> but the TTRS bridges are fairly broken (not to mention ugly)
21:48:33 <MNIM> no offense intended, if the actual dev of that set is here, but I don't like those bridges
21:48:49 <MNIM> besides the fact that they're broken, that is
21:51:50 <Eddi|zuHause> there were a handful extra TBRS sets around with support for various road sets
21:52:31 <Eddi|zuHause> not sure if TTRS roads were among them
21:52:36 <Eddi|zuHause> or where to find them
21:52:46 <Eddi|zuHause> i'd recommend just using the default roads
21:53:03 <Eddi|zuHause> least amount of trouble
21:55:03 <MNIM> true
21:55:28 <MNIM> but if we used that philosophy, would there even be TTRS or TBRS-es?
21:55:45 <MNIM> oh well, Ill google a bit more
21:56:10 <Eddi|zuHause> i'd dig through either grfcrawler or the TBRS thread in the forum
21:56:35 <Eddi|zuHause> might be a "TBRS 1.11 for TTRS"

23:55:16 <MNIM> well that was obvious.
23:55:27 <MNIM> frequently need to edit a savegame in scenario editor?
23:55:29 <MNIM> simple
23:55:38 <MNIM> symlink the the lot!
23:57:13 <Eddi|zuHause> ;)
23:57:50 <MNIM> sometimes shit can be so simple
23:58:12 <Eddi|zuHause> but that means overwriting the old savegame, which makes it difficult to go back if you made a mistake
23:59:10 <Eddi|zuHause> that is made worse by the distinctive lack of autosave in the scenario editor
