10:18:44 <Eddi|zuHause> michi_cc: err, we have the 146 already
10:19:45 <michi_cc> Oh, production start was 1997 though and not 2002 (for the 146.0), that's why I missed it
10:26:53 *** Progman has joined #openttd
10:36:44 <JVassie> think weve got 145, 146 and 246
10:37:08 <JVassie> not sure if we have the 185?
10:37:42 *** ar3kaw has quit IRC
10:37:42 <Eddi|zuHause> i'd probably put the 146 in passenger, not local
10:38:03 *** ar3k has joined #openttd
10:38:05 *** ar3k is now known as ar3kaw
10:38:05 <JVassie> it pulls a lot of RB/RE services
10:38:15 <JVassie> no?
10:39:06 <Eddi|zuHause> yes, and "RE" doesn't fit in my interpretation of "local" ;)
10:40:08 <JVassie> hmm I guess in this stage RE and IRE both fit into passenger
10:41:30 <Eddi|zuHause> we could also think about Talent (643/644) and the 425 for passenger
10:50:02 <peter1138> i was wondering why you'd put telnet on ports 643/644 for a moment...
10:51:40 *** Bjarte has quit IRC
10:55:53 <michi_cc> Eddi|zuHause: Feel free to move it
10:56:59 <michi_cc> The 101 in comparison would be more express then though.
10:58:26 <Eddi|zuHause> 101 is kind of a borderline case
10:59:30 <michi_cc> Yeah, express compared to 146, but not that much express compared to ICE3 :)
11:01:15 <JVassie> mhmhm
11:02:44 <Eddi|zuHause> hm... 423 or 425?
11:03:32 *** DayDreamer has quit IRC
11:07:26 <JVassie> for local?
11:08:02 <JVassie> 423 more widely used
11:08:07 <JVassie> 425 faster
11:08:09 <JVassie> :p
11:09:26 <Eddi|zuHause> alright, faster it is
11:10:27 *** k^^ has joined #openttd
11:12:00 <Eddi|zuHause> so... only thing still missing is the V60/V100-gap
11:13:04 <Eddi|zuHause> there's no real replacement for the E60
11:15:24 *** HerzogDeXtEr1 has joined #openttd
11:17:05 <Eddi|zuHause> Velaro-D as ICE3-replacement after 2011?

12:36:20 <michi_cc> If somebody draws a Velaro D we could do it as just a graphics change
12:40:41 <Eddi|zuHause> i'm thinking we should reintroduce the 290 for DR-only games after 1990 to solve the light cargo gap. otherwise i would consider this scheme finished for now
12:42:22 *** Intexon_ has joined #openttd
12:43:00 <michi_cc> Well, I don't have the V90 in the DB part either right now, simply because there would be some overlap with the V60, but I could add it do DB-land as well.
12:43:17 *** KouDy has joined #openttd
12:43:38 <Eddi|zuHause> we could take the V60 as well
12:45:33 <michi_cc> Well, the V90 is more powerful than the V60, so adding it to DB makes sense (and it's not like the DB had dozens of suitable diesel engines :)
12:47:45 <Eddi|zuHause> the V90 is basically a slightly toned down version of the V100, adapted for shunting purposes
12:49:36 <michi_cc> Right now I have both the V100 and the V90 for DB, but I'm not that sure there yet. There's quite some stuff missing from 1970 on.
12:50:15 <michi_cc> Oh, BTW, what was the reason the stop all express engines at 1950 for the DR? For the DB it would make sense to continue some of them.
12:50:45 <Eddi|zuHause> michi_cc: yeah, i thought the same
12:51:23 <Eddi|zuHause> express service of DR was hit really hard after the war, so i think that should somehow be represented in the timeline ;)
12:51:42 <andythenorth> do you have an artist yet?
12:53:13 *** k^^ has quit IRC
12:57:21 <Eddi|zuHause> not really
12:58:07 <michi_cc> Eddi|zuHause: The 03 should end 2-3 years earlier IMHO, so we don't have that big abrupt switchover at 1956.
12:58:56 <Eddi|zuHause> maybe
12:59:27 <Eddi|zuHause> there was also the BR 10, but even the DB realized quickly that this didn't make a lot of sense ;)
13:00:15 <Eddi|zuHause> DB practically requires you to switch to the heavy rail types
13:01:02 *** Amis has quit IRC
13:01:13 <michi_cc> With the exception of MU.
13:01:18 <Yexo> <andythenorth> do you have an artist yet? <- are you volunteering?
13:01:24 <andythenorth> no
13:01:33 <michi_cc> Ideas for some passenger stuff after 1970?
13:01:44 <andythenorth> there is someone who likes european trains - Emperor Jake maybe?
13:01:46 <andythenorth> iirc
13:02:37 <andythenorth>
13:03:01 <Eddi|zuHause> no, but before the 420 there was the ET31 (DRG), but i didn't really want to introduce it also in the DR-timeline
13:04:04 <Eddi|zuHause> but with ET31->420->425 it fits quite nicely in the DB timeline
13:11:08 <Eddi|zuHause> i think engine-driven passenger is quite well covered with the 111 and V160
13:14:34 <michi_cc> Something for cargo?
13:16:32 <michi_cc> Talent 2 from 2009 instead of Talent 1? Gets boring after 2000 otherwise.
13:16:58 <Eddi|zuHause> Talent1=diesel, Talent2=electric
13:17:16 <Eddi|zuHause> (at least in DB-realm)
13:17:48 <Eddi|zuHause> the talent2 offers almost nothing over the 425
13:17:59 <michi_cc> Right, Talent 1 can also be electric, but it seems the diesel variant was dropped for the 2
13:19:11 <Eddi|zuHause> well, if you can come up with some borderline sci-fi stuff until 2030 ;)
13:19:15 <michi_cc> Well, the idea was that after 10 game years or so there should be a new engine (simply so it doesn't get boring), even if the stats aren't that better
13:19:49 <JVassie> well the 440 got intro'd in 2010 was it?
13:20:27 <Eddi|zuHause> well, you can introduce the Talent2, but better not earlier than 2011
13:20:29 <JVassie> should last at least 10-15 years
13:20:46 <JVassie> VT551 in 2009
13:21:26 <JVassie> have we got ER20 eurorunner?
13:21:38 <JVassie> 2005 diesel
13:21:53 <michi_cc> How about LINT 54/81, DBAG from 2012 or so.
13:22:16 *** ashledombos has quit IRC
13:22:36 <michi_cc> ER20 is ÖBB for example, but not DBAG
13:23:17 <JVassie> ER20 is also NWB
13:23:32 <JVassie> so it would be in the german subset
13:23:36 <JVassie> (as well)
13:23:38 <Eddi|zuHause> it definitely gets more globally mixed after 2000 ;)
13:23:59 <JVassie> so it would be one of those cases where minimal would 'merge' the german and austrian variants
13:25:21 <JVassie> in 2008 youve got the 'Desiro ML'

14:28:41 <MNIM> hmmmmh
14:28:46 <MNIM> theoretical question.
14:29:13 <MNIM> how hard would it be to switch out the mechanism for placing bridges with the mechanism for tunnels?
14:29:46 <Yexo> where the game determines where the other end is?
14:30:07 <Yexo> quite easy, but that restricts you in where you place bridges, so it's not desirable
14:30:27 <MNIM> uh, lemme rephrase that
14:30:47 <MNIM> switch out the tunnel placing mechanism with the bridge placing mechanism
14:31:05 <Yexo> don't see how that would work at all
14:31:24 <MNIM> well, basically, you draw a bridge by click and drag
14:31:31 <MNIM> Id want to do the same with tunnels
14:32:01 <JVassie> interesting
14:32:04 <Yexo> why? a tunnel is restricted by the landscape
14:32:09 <Hirundo> If you place a tunnel end somewhere, there's only one place where it can end, so drag and drop is useless
14:32:10 <JVassie> i presume this is related to your idea before
14:32:13 <MNIM> which would add the advantage of being able to build tunnels on slopes other than perpendicular to your intended direction
14:32:16 <JVassie> of having a tunnel entrance on a flat tile
14:32:16 <MNIM> yes, jvassie
14:32:23 <MNIM> yexo: so are bridges
14:32:38 <MNIM> you cant draw a bridge over a bump higher than one tile below bridge deck
14:32:39 <Yexo> but for bridges for every start tile you have multiple end tiles
14:32:46 <Hirundo> Bridge ends can be built on flat tiles, remember
14:32:49 <Yexo> for tunnels that doesn't hold
14:32:53 <MNIM> yes, hirundo
14:33:09 <MNIM> part of my idea is that the same should be possible for tunnels
14:33:09 <JVassie> Yexo, if a tunnel entrance on flat ground was implemented though
14:33:18 <MNIM> wait
14:33:18 <JVassie> a tunnel would also have multiple end tiles
14:33:23 <Rubidium> interchanging the waterbridge placement for the tunnel placement is trivial ;)
14:33:26 <Terkhen> IMO there are two different issues
14:33:29 <MNIM> lemme grab my example pic
14:33:47 * JVassie whistles patiently
14:33:55 <Terkhen> changing the mechanism of tunnel placement is relatively trivial, making tunnels appear in tiles that are not "the next slope" not so much
14:34:04 <Terkhen> s/appear/end/
14:34:06 * MNIM pokes fileden
14:34:17 <MNIM> terkhen: same mechanism as bridges, too
14:34:18 <Yexo> <JVassie> Yexo, if a tunnel entrance on flat ground was implemented though <- that, however, is a totally different suggestion
14:34:20 <MNIM> drag 'n draw
14:34:24 <MNIM> then check if it's possible
14:34:32 <JVassie> Yexo, it was MNIM's original suggestion :)
14:34:34 <MNIM> instead of check if if it's possible, then draw
14:34:44 <MNIM> GAH
14:34:53 <MNIM> why is fileden suddenly so slow when you need it
14:34:53 <Terkhen> with the current mechanism there is only one possible end for a tunnel
14:34:56 <MNIM> or is it my internet
14:35:07 <MNIM> oh, my internet >.<
14:35:09 <Rubidium> tunnel entrances on non-simple slopes can't be drawn correctly, unless you check all four neighbouring tiles for their tunnel (direction) just to see whether a foundation must be placed or not (quite expensive)
14:35:29 <JVassie> i presume expensive in this case refers to processing power
14:35:39 <Rubidium> yep
14:35:40 <MNIM> for some reason requests for pages get lost sometimes
14:35:40 <Eddi|zuHause> explicit foundations (1-tile cliffs) may help there
14:36:10 <MNIM>
14:36:30 <JVassie> the / direction example is better
14:36:45 <JVassie> the \ direction isnt exactly what your describing
14:36:51 <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: you really think that that is ever going to happen? I somewhat lost hope for that
14:37:05 <Terkhen> I think that with the current placement of tunnels, those placements are impossible
14:37:14 <MNIM> don't mind the random tunnel exit in the middle of those ground tiles, I should have photoshopped over it
14:37:35 <MNIM> terkhen: that's exactly why I am asking if it is possible to draw 'em like bridges
14:37:48 <MNIM> bridge heads can be both flat and go up
14:38:13 <Hirundo> Placement is really the least of your worries in this case, I think
14:38:14 <MNIM> tunnel entrances right now can only be drawn flat, it would be nice to have them go down like bridges go up too
14:38:52 <MNIM> with the advantage that tunnels can then have one height level difference like bridges, too
14:39:10 <MNIM> in short, it would basically make them inverted bridges
14:39:21 <JVassie>
14:39:24 <JVassie> i fixed the image
14:39:24 * Hirundo senses a host of drawing/clipping issues
14:39:36 <MNIM> with the advantage that the land on top of a tunnel can be built on
14:39:39 <MNIM> thanks, vassie
14:40:00 <MNIM> hirundo: well, you will need new sprites
14:40:00 <JVassie> its a very good idea MNIM
14:40:01 <Rubidium> that can't be drawn correctly; you need at least half a tile overlap for the trains to properly enter the tunnel, i.e. not disappear mid somewhere. However, after half a tile they are not low enough to be drawn below the entrance of the tunnel, which we can't draw (it's already cheating by drawing it too high) much higher when there's e.g. a bridge over it
14:40:31 <MNIM> the tunnel entrance can go up a bit
14:40:48 <MNIM> like -"\-
14:41:01 <MNIM> lemme draw that
14:41:09 <MNIM> hmmmh
14:41:12 <MNIM> I need more dekstops
14:41:46 <JVassie> hang on
14:41:48 <Rubidium> bounding box (for drawing) wise that's quite unlikely to work properly
14:42:09 <Rubidium> unless, ofcourse, you replace everything by proper 3D models. Then it would be possible
14:42:15 <Rubidium> but that'd require lower trains
14:42:17 *** Prof_Frink has joined #openttd
14:42:31 *** Mucht has quit IRC
14:42:38 <Rubidium> one heightlevel is 8 pixels
14:42:57 <JVassie>
14:43:03 <JVassie> how about something liek that
14:43:10 <MNIM> hmmmmh
14:43:12 <JVassie> that would sove the issue rubidium pointed out i think
14:43:21 <MNIM> not quite, but you're getting it
14:43:44 <JVassie> basically build 'up' around the edges of the tunnel portal to camouflage it
14:43:53 <Hirundo> so the train's roof is torn off by the station?
14:44:14 <JVassie> not like ottd has clippign issues already or anything
14:44:29 <Hirundo> let that be a reason to introduce more! ... not..
14:44:31 <Rubidium> JVassie: not much, and adding more because there are some is a bad idea
14:44:42 <Rubidium> in any case...
14:44:58 <JVassie> how about visually altering the 'steepness' of the slope?
14:45:07 <JVassie> is that possible?
14:45:22 <Rubidium> ofcourse
14:45:26 <Rubidium> but...
14:45:32 <Rubidium> needs new rail graphics
14:45:46 <JVassie> 8 sprites
14:45:46 <Rubidium> needs vast rewrite of the vehicle movement code
14:45:59 <JVassie> i just meant visually
14:46:07 <JVassie> which is the issue were tryign to address isnt it?
14:46:25 <Rubidium> nope... it's totally bounding boxes I'm talking about
14:47:02 <MNIM>
14:47:11 <JVassie> woah
14:47:37 <JVassie> quite hard to understand that tbh MNIM
14:47:45 <MNIM> don't mind the lousy drawing quality, you try drawing something in a couple of minutes when you haven't done a proper piece of art in ages :P
14:48:00 <JVassie> MS paint + line tool
14:48:01 <JVassie> = sorted
14:48:02 <JVassie> :D
14:48:09 <MNIM> ms paint, no can do
14:48:16 <MNIM> this is linux, gimp and my tablet
14:48:19 <JVassie> bah
14:48:45 <JVassie> Rubidium: any other ideas on gettign roudn the issue?
14:48:51 <Rubidium> e.g. a train would be visually entering the tunnel when it's at 1/4 of the way in, which means it's 2 pixels down. Add catenary, train, tunnel bounding box and you're at 8+ pixels up which conflicts with the bounding box of the bridge
14:49:20 <MNIM> rubidium: nevermind the bridge
14:49:31 <MNIM> bridges frequently break the bounding box already
14:49:47 <MNIM> just draw a bridge over a diagonal track and you'll see what I mean
14:50:13 <TWerkhoven> pillars in the middle of the track?
14:50:18 <MNIM> for example
14:50:26 <MNIM> clipping issues with trains, too
14:50:50 <JVassie> is the feature codable?
14:50:54 <Rubidium> that smells more like trains that are being drawn too large; I at least don't remember clipping problems there
14:50:56 <JVassie> forgettign about visual issues?
14:51:11 <Rubidium> it can be coded
14:51:20 <JVassie> fairly easily?
14:51:36 <JVassie> call it a brunnel, or a tudge? :p
14:51:55 <MNIM> rubidium: coded by somebody whose biggest project in coding ever was building calculator for IT classes?
14:52:29 <MNIM> (granted, that calculator had by far the biggest feature package of the whole class, but still)
14:52:36 <Hirundo> Take a look at and notice how the tunnel entrance is 'cheating' already, as it's much higher than 8px
14:52:53 <MNIM> pretty much
14:53:11 <MNIM> and tunnels aren't the only one
14:53:23 <MNIM> also PRETTY :D
14:53:37 <MNIM> hmmmmh
14:54:11 <MNIM> I should still get around to getting 32 bits on this installation
14:55:25 <Rubidium> I'd say that implementing rail/road on tunnel entrances would be easier, and likely with less nasty side effects
14:56:18 *** Brianetta has joined #openttd
14:56:42 <JVassie> hmm
14:56:46 <JVassie> go for it Rubidium :D
14:56:59 <Rubidium> gheheh....
14:57:10 <MNIM> well, that would be pretty nice too
14:57:12 <Rubidium> there are more urgent things
15:02:32 *** DayDreamer has joined #openttd
15:04:05 *** supermop has joined #openttd
15:16:45 <MNIM>
15:16:48 <MNIM> how would that work?
15:18:02 <MNIM> it would need to work on blending in the rear end of the tunnel in the landscape, but yeah
15:18:40 <MNIM> other solution is to have the brick end work up gradually to the upper arch
15:19:50 <MNIM> and have the top of the tunnel entrance drop back as sharp as possible without making the tunnel roof seem impossibly thin back into the ground level

17:57:26 <Terkhen> really, how?
17:57:27 <Terkhen> :P
17:58:35 <JVassie> how easy would it be to be able to create foundations next to tunnel entrances?

18:02:53 *** keky___ has quit IRC
18:08:19 <JVassie> *sigh* :(

18:12:29 <michi_cc> Eddi|zuHause: I'm not happy at all about DB between1975 and 1990, but where to take engines from? :) The 181 is still missing, but very similar to the 111. Diesel-wise everything that was not just some (failed) experiment is in. The MU 628 could go in as it was actually built till 1995, but otherwise...

18:23:55 <Alberth> :)
18:25:21 <Alberth> michi_cc: it's a challenge of theDB set ;)
18:25:48 <Alberth> providing new engines constantly gets so boring :)
18:25:56 *** a1270 has quit IRC
18:27:40 <Alberth> Zuu: you may want to add it at one of these pages:
18:27:49 <Alberth> or make a new page?
18:28:33 <Zuu> Good suggestion
18:30:36 <michi_cc> Alberth: DBSetXL even cheats a bit by introducing DR engines that were later used by the DB(AG) as well before reunification.
18:38:43 <Eddi|zuHause> the 120 might look better on the express side
18:39:44 <Eddi|zuHause> so you have 120 express, 111 passenger, 151 freight, and V160 diesel. plus a handful of DMU/EMU type things
18:40:16 <Eddi|zuHause> then make the V100 or V90 available longer
18:41:33 <Eddi|zuHause> afair there was an experimental V320
18:42:13 <Eddi|zuHause> might be useful for heavy freight, instead of the DBSet-cheat with the 132/232
18:42:58 <andythenorth> should be a new cb
18:43:05 <andythenorth> availability
18:43:12 <andythenorth> currently action 0 only
18:43:17 <andythenorth> then a new var
18:43:24 <andythenorth> get region of depot on map
18:43:35 <andythenorth> or town depot belongs to
18:44:09 <andythenorth> then use town control to set towns to different political entities
18:44:14 <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: a regional thing needs support by the game, afair there was a partial patch for regional house sets already
18:44:29 <Yexo> there was indeed :)
18:44:31 <Eddi|zuHause> same may be done with vehicles
18:44:41 <Eddi|zuHause> doesn't need any grf-support
18:45:08 <Eddi|zuHause> just have the player make 1 to n presets, and the game selects the regions
18:45:21 <Yexo> hmm, last update was already 10 months ago
18:45:28 <Eddi|zuHause> then only houses/vehicles/industries of those grfs will appear in the region
18:46:43 <Eddi|zuHause> needs support for having more than one grf-set active at all times. may help with main menu validity checking as well ;)
18:47:50 <Eddi|zuHause> and when we have separate grf settings for main menu and title game, we can offer alternate title games for download on bananas. ones with GRFs in them (unlike the default title game)
18:49:23 <Eddi|zuHause> also, add an m8 on the map array, store the region-ID there, and then you can easily have multi-climate worlds

19:18:18 <Alberth> andythenorth: 'up' just changes the checked out revision, it does not revert a commit
19:18:29 <andythenorth> that's ok
19:18:35 <andythenorth> it's what I wanted

19:32:14 *** KritiK has joined #openttd
19:32:31 <Rubidium> but the extremely narrow gauge of TTD trams does not match the railway's gauge
19:32:50 <Eddi|zuHause> there is a standard-gauge-tram-grf :)
19:34:24 <Eddi|zuHause> <-- also this is done with narrow gauge railway as well
19:37:22 *** k^^ has quit IRC
19:37:52 <__ln__> standard gauge trams is the german way of doing things, but is narrow or standard actually more common in europe?
19:38:26 <Eddi|zuHause> i'd say it's about 50/50 in germany
19:38:47 *** k^^ has joined #openttd
19:40:13 <__ln__> 100/0 (for narrow) over here
19:41:16 <__ln__> narrow in all three towns that used to have trams. today there's only one tram town left
19:41:45 <andythenorth> what's the really powerful german electric locomotive that has a window sticking out of one side?
19:41:51 <andythenorth> used for coal trains only
19:43:11 <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__:ädten_mit_Straßenbahnen#Deutschland
19:45:24 <Eddi|zuHause> france has almost completely standard gauge trams
19:46:40 <Eddi|zuHause> and russia almost completely broad gauge, except in Kaliningrad (Königsberg/Ostpreußen)
19:47:35 * andythenorth googles in vain for mystery locomotive
19:47:36 <__ln__> and Wyborg, which was one of the finnish towns i was referring to
19:49:42 <dihedral> <- nice
19:50:17 <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: you know whether it was an east-german or west-german engine?
19:50:21 <andythenorth> no
19:50:28 <__ln__> funny, are the russians using 1524mm with trams although the railway gauge was changed to 1520mm during soviet era.
19:50:31 <andythenorth> it might come in two single-cabbed units
19:50:42 <andythenorth> it is too wide to travel outside a restricted zone
19:50:49 <andythenorth> it has a special cab for moving through coal loader
19:51:19 <Eddi|zuHause> yes, there are some coal-only rails that don't belong to DB
19:52:24 <Zuu> from what I've heard all trams in Sweden run on standard gauge.
19:53:13 <Eddi|zuHause> <- i don't suppose it looks anything like this

20:32:33 <andythenorth> maybe I misremember
