03:20:17 <a_p3rson> is there a way to specify which station gets a certain amount of cargo?
03:22:10 <a_p3rson> like if i have an airport next to a trainstation, both that have vehicles that accept the same amount of cargo, to specify the airport to get more of the cargo?
03:24:15 <a_p3rson> anything?
03:29:14 <DabuYu> as far as i know you can't set that yourself, that's done through the rating the station gets (i suppose)
03:29:37 <DabuYu> you can connect the trainstation and airport as one, if they're very close

10:04:13 <Pikka> ahoyhoy and custard
10:09:47 <andythenorth> aloha
10:10:04 <andythenorth> Pikka is on uk time?
10:10:07 <andythenorth> or staying up late?
10:11:04 <Pikka> it's 8pm, andy
10:11:31 <Pikka> I'll still be working at this time tomorrow D:
10:12:44 <Eddi|zuHause> what the hell is custard anyway?
10:13:48 <Pikka> it's a mixture of milk and egg that invented SCUBA, Eddi
10:25:27 <Eddi|zuHause> is that comparable to anything edible by continental europeans?
10:31:52 <Pikka> it's hard to tell, Eddi
10:32:17 <Pikka> although of all traditional english foodstuffs I wouldn't have thought it among the least appetising.
10:33:10 <Eddi|zuHause> well, i have no idea how it tastes
10:37:55 <duckblaster> custard powder: cornflour + vanilla flavouring + yellow colouring
10:37:56 *** dfox has joined #openttd
10:38:24 <Eddi|zuHause> so it tastes like vanilla sauce?
10:38:52 <duckblaster> um, not sure?
10:39:31 <duckblaster> since i am allergic to both milk and egg, have to stick with custard powder and soy milk
10:39:50 *** Sacro has joined #openttd
10:46:37 <peter1138> it tastes like... custard
10:51:50 <andythenorth> it's custardy

12:20:23 <dihedral> @seen equinox
12:20:23 <DorpsGek> dihedral: I have not seen equinox.
12:20:41 <dihedral> ah well ^^
12:20:43 <planetmaker> you've strangely named friends ;-)
12:23:28 <dihedral> yes :-P
12:23:32 <dihedral> but at least i know him :-D
12:23:53 <dihedral> not just one of those ... "virtual" contacts :-D
12:23:57 * dihedral chuckles
12:25:16 *** Chillosophy has joined #openttd
12:25:51 <dihedral> and hello planetmaker :-)
12:25:52 <dihedral> hihi
12:55:08 <Eddi|zuHause> it's not our fault that you were not at r20k
12:57:48 <dihedral> yeah - i wish i had been :-(
12:58:24 <dihedral> it's gonna take a while until we hit 30k
12:58:47 <dihedral> but perhaps i'll do a europe tour and visit all the well known ... 'nicks' ^^
12:58:48 <Eddi|zuHause> at the current speed of development... very long ;)
12:58:53 <dihedral> hehe
12:59:10 <dihedral> perhaps we should do parties every 5k rather ^^
12:59:42 <Eddi|zuHause> r23456
13:00:29 <Eddi|zuHause> or you people come to my birthday
13:02:00 <dihedral> uh
13:02:06 <dihedral> now that sounds like an interesting idea
13:02:12 <dihedral> i get my car back today ;-)
13:02:17 <dihedral> when's your birthday?
13:02:36 <andythenorth>
13:03:09 <Eddi|zuHause> end of september
13:04:03 <Eddi|zuHause> might target the 1st october (saturday) though
13:04:09 <dihedral> i am mid november - we can do two parties after each other :-P
13:07:58 <dihedral> interesting andythenorth
13:08:25 <Eddi|zuHause>,1518,777958,00.html <- i spot a real life godwin event...
13:19:19 <planetmaker> meh, seems like

14:56:18 <dihedral> Zuu, i have some admin network stuff to do anyway :-P
14:57:27 <Zuu> Oh, and if I get something going with the NoAI API for airports, it will have to be one patch per new/modified function :-p hehe

15:03:04 <LordAro> afternoon
15:03:58 <andythenorth> commit my cb 15e patch :P
15:06:49 <planetmaker> Zuu, next party up North? ;-)
15:07:45 <planetmaker> also... one patch per modified or new function is not that bad an idea
15:08:39 <planetmaker> well, you know how our commits work: atomic ;-)
15:15:01 <Eddi|nichZuHause> so, then atomically commit yacd and distyacd :p
15:17:09 *** Eddi|nichZuHause has quit IRC
15:22:35 <Zuu> planetmaker: Not impossible. __ln__ would be even more up North than here. I'm only less than an hour from Copenhagen.
15:24:15 <planetmaker> that makes it easy to get there ;-)

15:35:02 <Rubidium> Zuu: by what means of transportation? ;)
15:35:34 <Zuu> Rubidium: Both train and car at least if thee is no jam on the highway and the trains are not too delayed.
15:36:18 <Zuu> Not sure if the helicopter service still exist. But before the bridge was there, there was a helicopter service over the water for those who didn't want to go with the ferry (and could afford the helicopter)
15:37:34 *** DayDreamer has joined #openttd
15:37:58 <Rubidium> so it's Malmö-ish? Although google maps says it's ~1 hour to Helsingborg as well
15:41:15 <Zuu> Rubidium: Lund
15:41:40 <Zuu> Which is only "2 mil" from Malmö. Note that a swedish mile is 10km ;-)
15:42:09 <Zuu> It's between Malmö and Helsingborg sort of.
15:42:31 <planetmaker> that's an interesting unit. Never heart it before
15:43:18 <Rubidium> the closest airport is probably Copenhagen, right?
15:43:30 <Rubidium> somewhat internationalish one that is
15:46:22 <planetmaker> well, I'd drive. I could pickup people from there, I guess
15:48:29 <Zuu> Rubidium: Right. There is one called Malmö airport as well which has busses but no train. It is however much smaller and is mostly only used for flights to sunny places etc. "charter" is what its called here.
15:49:17 <Zuu> Copenhagen airport is IIRC the largest one in scandinavia.
15:54:15 <Rubidium> planetmaker: yeah, the Copenhagen airport would be only a tiny detour
15:55:28 *** GniarfBis has quit IRC
16:11:05 <planetmaker> yes, and from there it's only like 45min to Lund, according to google
16:11:52 <planetmaker> but it takes me 5 hours to get there :-)

16:37:47 *** TWerkhoven has left #openttd
16:39:52 *** pugi has quit IRC
16:44:59 <Zuu> There is also a DB train from Hamburg to Copenhagen, but only that takes 5 hours.
16:47:08 *** pugi has joined #openttd
16:54:15 <planetmaker> well. Hamburg is 2h from here ;-)

16:58:35 *** bb10 has joined #openttd
17:00:00 <__ln__> I'm 1,5h from Copenhagen by plane. (there are direct flights)
17:02:24 *** TWerkhoven has joined #openttd
17:07:15 <__ln__> driving to copenhagen costs money besides the gasoline; either the ferry or a bridge.
17:09:01 <planetmaker> it does; I'd go by ferry
17:11:15 <Eddi|zuHause> i have gone warnemünde<->gedser once each way by ferry
17:12:36 <__ln__> yes, ferry is right choice. (puttgarden<->rødby). cuts down 150km of driving or so, and one gets a 45-minute break which can be used for eating a lunch on the ferry.
17:14:31 <Eddi|zuHause> there's a night train berlin-malmö
17:14:36 <planetmaker> yup. That's what I did so far when going to Sweden
17:14:43 <__ln__> copenhagen<->malmö/lund is shorter and quicker by the bridge, on the other hand.
17:14:46 <planetmaker> Also... ferries are good
17:14:57 <planetmaker> also that's what I did so far :-P
17:17:25 <__ln__> though if heading for finland, then the helsingør<->helsingborg ferry is the shorter route
17:18:09 *** andythenorth has quit IRC
17:18:21 <__ln__> i've tested both the ferries and both the bridges, most of them more than once :)
17:19:03 <planetmaker> :-)
17:19:11 <planetmaker> I've unfortunately not been in Finland so far

17:21:58 *** |Jeroen| has joined #openttd
17:23:34 <Eddi|zuHause> so a quick overview shows, there is 3 possibilities: start in the evening (~20:00) and arrive in the morning (~8:00) in Malmö, start in the morning (~4:30) and arrive in the afternoon in copenhagen (~14:00) or start in the afternoon (~14:00) and arrive in the evening in copenhagen (~22:00)
17:24:00 <Eddi|zuHause> (by train, that is)
17:27:13 *** frosch123 has joined #openttd
17:28:13 <Chris_Booth> sleeper trains rule Eddi|zuHause
17:31:42 <Eddi|zuHause> weird train, it says "RE", but has like 20 stops inbetween... i don't want to see where an RB stops along that same route then...
17:32:16 *** Chris_Booth_ has joined #openttd
17:32:40 <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: what was the departure point of those trains/times mentioned above?
17:34:39 <Eddi|zuHause> Halle (Saale) Hbf
17:35:57 <__ln__> ok
17:37:08 <Eddi|zuHause> all routes either via berlin or hamburg (or both)
17:37:33 *** Chris_Booth has quit IRC
17:37:43 *** Chris_Booth_ is now known as Chris_Booth
17:41:59 <__ln__> Hannover-CPH is 1 hour by plane
17:43:52 <Eddi|zuHause> tell if you have Leipzig/Halle -> Copenhagen ;)

17:48:31 <Eddi|zuHause> what kind of route is that? Copenhagen - [Puttgarden] - Hamburg - [Hannover - Göttingen] - Bad Hersfeld - [Eisenach - Erfurt] - Naumburg - Halle
17:48:58 <Eddi|zuHause> (names in [] are some inbetween stops, other names are switching trains)
17:51:01 <Eddi|zuHause> there's also the more direct route: Copenhagen - [Puttgarden] - Hamburg - Hannover - [Braunschweig - Magdeburg] - Halle
17:51:51 <__ln__> do they transport trains on ferries from puttgarden nowadays?
17:52:06 <__ln__> passenger trains
17:52:09 <Eddi|zuHause> they always did that, or not?
17:52:54 <__ln__> dunno, i just think Bjarni once said that it's not done on some routes anymore, after the bridges were completed.
17:55:34 <Eddi|zuHause>
17:56:26 <__ln__> looks convincing
17:56:48 <__ln__> that's an ICE-T?
17:57:10 <__ln__> or what was the diesel version's name
17:57:42 <__ln__> TD probably
17:58:51 *** ar3k has quit IRC
17:59:26 <__ln__>
18:00:31 <Eddi|zuHause> ICE-T is the tilt version. ICE-TD is both tilt and diesel
18:00:59 <__ln__> also
18:04:03 *** goblin has joined #openttd
18:06:53 *** andythenorth has quit IRC
18:07:59 <Eddi|zuHause> many dutch peo... i mean caravans leaving this ferry :p
18:12:09 <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: as far as i know, the ICE-T was originally developed as "IC-T", as replacement for engine-driven ICs, and only very last-minute declared as ICE. it is mainly used for increased speed through curvy tracks, e.g. on the Saalebahn, the route Nürnberg-Saalfeld-Jena-Naumburg-Leipzig, this is different from the ICE3, which from the beginning was designed as ICE1/2 successor.
18:12:46 <Eddi|zuHause> based on the ICE-T they developed a diesel version ICE-TD for the route Nürnberg-Hof-Plauen-Reichenbach-Zwickau-Chemnitz-Dresden
18:13:03 <Eddi|zuHause> which is not electrified between Nünberg and Reichenbach.
18:13:14 <Eddi|zuHause> but that connection was not very successful
18:14:08 <Eddi|zuHause> so the ICE-TD were withdrawn and basically standing around useless, until the DB decided to run them on the Hambugr-Puttgarden-Copenhagen line
18:16:20 <Eddi|zuHause> by 2017 they want to open the high speed line Nürnberg-Erfurt and Erfurt-Leipzig/Halle, making the Saalebahn obsolete for high speed travel
18:17:48 *** andythenorth has joined #openttd
18:19:35 <__ln__> normalpreis for kopenhagen-hamburg seems to be 84,60€ ... not much cheaper than flying. 29€ as sparangebot though.

18:39:40 <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: btw, the Berlin-Malmö train goes via Sassnitz-Trelleborg ferry
18:42:10 <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: and almost nobody pays the "normal price", there's always some sort of reduced price, usually with limiting you to one exact train (instead of "any train within a 24h period")

19:00:16 <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: we're just discussing ways to get to Zuu's place for the next rWhatever-Party :p
19:04:23 <__ln__> 18:41 < Zuu> Which is only "2 mil" from Malmö. Note that a swedish mile is 10km ;-) 18:42 <@planetmaker> that's an interesting unit. Never heart it before <-- speaking of strange units in sweden, they also like to measure weight in 'hg', i.e. hectograms.
19:07:51 <supermop_> so ive decided to convert this 128 tile game to 24 hour schedules
19:08:16 <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: that's not too stupid, most things get measured in multiples of 100g
19:08:17 <Rubidium> oh, only 18 hours by train
19:08:30 <Rubidium> but a mere 2 changes of train
19:09:09 <supermop_> starting with a tram that now has 120 steps in its orders
19:09:53 <Eddi|zuHause> how many round trips is that?
19:11:01 <supermop_> each round trip is 75 minutes including short lay-up at end of line, it does that for a bit less than 20 hours,
19:11:28 <supermop_> then goes to a depot, then waits until 6:00 am to start again
19:12:43 <supermop_> 5 trams run that line, 15 minutes apart,
19:13:17 <supermop_> the first 4 follow that above pattern, the 5th runs all night
19:14:37 <supermop_> there are 6 radial tram lines in the town, so I plan on expanding to those as well
19:15:23 <supermop_> previously, each line was either 60 or 75 minutes round trip,
19:16:31 <supermop_> with very tight coordination in the city center, with trams leaving the central station every 5 minutes
19:18:23 <Eddi|zuHause> how is 5 minutes "tight" in a city centre?
19:19:51 <supermop_> its as tight as i can get these trams in TT,
19:21:41 <supermop_> as the center two stations are on a loop, i need to leave enough space to ensure that a tram does not accidentally enter that section of track ahead of a tram from another line that needs to leave earlier
19:21:44 <supermop_> also
19:22:02 <supermop_> 5 minute spacing make the departure board look pretty

19:44:25 *** Zuu has joined #openttd
19:50:19 <Zuu> Rubidium: The weekend I went to r20k, I also had a trip down from Stockholm to Lund so it ended up as a total of 24hours or so on train (I took the berlin sleeper on the way down and the hamburg->copenhagen train on the way home.)
19:51:11 <Zuu> But I also had my master thesis to read through as entertainment :-D
19:55:00 <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: agreed, hg is a useful unit, but so rare elsewhere.
19:56:06 <Rubidium> Zuu: but... for less money I can be earlier at Copenhagen airport by using a plane ;)
19:56:44 <Zuu> Not surprised that the airoplane is cheaper and faster.
19:57:07 <Eddi|zuHause> not from here...
19:57:32 <Eddi|zuHause> if they don't have direct flights, it's useless
19:58:06 <__ln__> Lund is so close to Copenhagen it could be possible to get mr. B to participate.
19:58:41 <Zuu> Eddi|zuHause: You could check Malmö airport as well if it has any flights, but perhaps you already did that?
19:59:19 <Eddi|zuHause> i already did that... Leipzig/Halle->Copenhagen with 1 stop and Leipzig/Halle->Malmö with 2 stops. it's totally stupid
19:59:48 <Eddi|zuHause> and if i have to go to places like hannover by train, then i can go the full way anyway...
20:00:24 <__ln__> how much was leipzig/halle-cph?
20:00:59 <Eddi|zuHause> don't remember... more than the train
20:01:20 <__ln__> how about a private jet
20:02:26 <Eddi|zuHause> it's around same time and also similar price range as the train, it seems
20:02:40 <Eddi|zuHause> without the option to go overnight
20:03:50 <Zuu> I should tell that currently my apartment building have renovations and after the vacation they will give me new water pipes and at some point they will also close the drain in the cellar for two weeks replacement. This is schedulled to happen after the summer but there is no really accurate schedule for exactly which week it will happen. I would say for sure that it will be done by the end of quater three, probably earlier than that.
20:04:59 <__ln__> a word of warning; in denmark and sweden the currency is also paper or metal, but looks different and they only accept their kind of money, not the usual money.
20:05:36 <Zuu> On the other hand, paying by VISA/Master card for a packet of milk is almost socially accepted.
20:06:23 <orudge> a "packet" of milk, you crazy continental types :P
20:06:27 * orudge gives Zuu a lovely bottle of milk instead
20:06:30 <Zuu> Anything above 3-4 euros is usually not a problem. If it is below, you just say that you want to use the shop as an ATM and get money ontop of your buy so that they understand that you are out of cash.
20:06:31 <orudge> I bet it's UHT milk, too, you drink :(
20:06:52 <Eddi|zuHause> germans rarely use credit cards
20:06:54 <__ln__> yes, and is also possible to buy with a visa/master unlike in many german stores.
20:07:36 * peter1138 's never used a credit card
20:07:37 <orudge> Major shops here will take credit/debit cards for pretty much anything, smaller shops or takeaways may only take them for amounts over, say, £5
20:07:45 <__ln__> orudge: ewww, and no, swedes aren't that misguided
20:07:52 <orudge> __ln__: oh, that's OK then
20:07:55 <orudge> my apologies
20:08:34 <Eddi|zuHause> what's UHT milk?
20:08:41 <orudge> shite
20:08:45 <Zuu> I've bought things for as low as 1 Euro by card, but at those amounts I try to pay by cash if I have any cash.
20:08:48 <orudge> I mean, ultra-high-temperature processed milk
20:09:02 <__ln__> comes from ultra-high-temperature cows
20:09:07 <orudge> :)
20:09:08 <orudge> in theory lasts 6-9 months
20:09:17 <orudge> but it doesn't taste as good as proper milk
20:09:19 <peter1138> yes, because it's so horrible you don't want to use it
20:09:25 <Eddi|zuHause> isn't that the standard for milk nowadays?
20:09:26 <orudge> the French are big fans
20:09:33 <__ln__> and can be stored in room temperature before opening, but it tastes bad
20:10:03 <orudge>
20:10:08 <Eddi|zuHause> i never liked the taste of pure milk, though, maybe that's the reason :p
20:10:36 <peter1138> crazy belgiums
20:10:51 <andythenorth> at least the belgiums might ship multi-stop docks
20:10:54 <andythenorth> given enough time ;P
20:10:59 * Zuu usually buys half-processed milk. There is also a more "raw" kind of milk available where they haven't taken away any fat.
20:11:24 * orudge drinks full cream/whole milk
20:11:33 <orudge> I'll settle for semi-skimmed if I have to, but I won't buy it normally
20:11:40 <orudge> skimmed milk is pretty much pointless, you might as well have water
20:11:49 <__ln__> pure, cold, non-UHT milk is one of the best things to drink
20:12:00 <Zuu> Indeed
20:12:07 <andythenorth> phlegm
20:13:40 <Zuu> And then we have the sour milk which has similar consistency to yougurt but is more close to how milk tasts than yougurt is. (but not very close either)
20:13:40 <__ln__> i've also tasted real raw milk a few times (i.e. not pasteurized or processed in any way)... it's a bit different, but not bad either.
20:14:40 <__ln__> Zuu: and to confuse tourists, the norwegians call that kulturmelk or something, nothing about sur in its name.
20:15:03 <Zuu> here it is called "filmjölk"
20:15:13 <Zuu> (mjölk == milk)
20:15:33 <__ln__> not surmjölk? or is that a different thing?
20:15:36 <Eddi|zuHause> <__ln__> pure, cold, non-UHT milk is one of the best things to drink <-- wouldn't pure fresh milk be usually still warm from the cow it came from a few minutes ago?
20:15:44 <andythenorth> no no!
20:15:49 <andythenorth> milk comes from fridges
20:16:03 <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: in the 2000's, cows are refridgerated
20:16:17 <Eddi|zuHause> unless you drink like goat milk or something :p
20:17:06 <Zuu> __ln__: no, surmöjk would be milk that has gone too old and smells and tastes wierd. (I know sour milk is made from milk, but the process is more controlled than an old package of milk that has been forgotten in a fridge)
20:17:48 <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: the milk is already refridgerared at the farm. so you would have to attach yourself directly to the cow, if you would want to get non-refridgerated one
20:18:05 <orudge> that'd probably get you arrested
20:18:14 <orudge> :p
20:18:27 <peter1138> only if you're Sacro
20:18:40 <andythenorth> probably get you kicked in the head
20:18:50 <andythenorth> did someone mention multi-stop docks?
20:18:52 <andythenorth> who was that?
20:19:01 <__ln__> Zuu: oh, it's called surmjölk over here (in the swedish labels)
20:19:26 <Zuu> __ln__: Interesting, I actually never herd of it before.
20:19:34 *** Brianetta has quit IRC
20:19:56 <Eddi|zuHause> i only know "sour cream", not "sour milk"...
20:20:10 <Zuu> For the case of sour milk, you would usually write it as "sur mjölk" but in theory you can make a noun out of it.
20:20:21 <andythenorth> milk economy for FIRS!
20:20:28 <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: it was you, just a few minutes ago!
20:20:43 <andythenorth> I thought someone said they were patching for it
20:20:50 <andythenorth> I must have been smoking crack
20:21:26 <Eddi|zuHause> anyway, is this lack of UHT-milk the reason why you see "milk deliveries" in british movies and series?
20:21:38 <andythenorth> one reason yes
20:21:47 <andythenorth> we have a cultural aversion to UHT
20:21:48 <Eddi|zuHause> that is a completely unknown thing here...
20:21:49 <andythenorth> dunno why
20:22:21 <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: it's called Dickmilch, and is actually not particularry soured
20:23:42 <Eddi|zuHause> i'm not really that involved with milk products...
20:24:35 <frosch123> orudge: btw. noone drinks uht milk nowadays. microfiltration is the todays technology
20:25:04 <orudge> frosch123: ah. Is it any less awful? :p
20:25:34 <frosch123> it stays fine for about 20 days and tastes like fresh milk
20:25:38 <orudge> Eddi|zuHause: milk deliveries tend not to happen so much these days, alas, anyway
20:25:45 <frosch123> it's actually sold as "fresh"
20:25:49 <orudge> much cheaper for everyone to just go to the supermarket and buy their milk there
20:26:46 * __ln__ bought non-UHT milk in Las Vegas
20:27:03 <Eddi|zuHause> orudge: i guess milk deliveries haven't happened around here since the 1970's
20:27:05 <andythenorth> what happens in Vegas...
20:27:27 <orudge> My Grandad used to get a milk delivery, they stopped, I don't know, maybe 5-10 years ago, then another guy started them up a few years ago
20:27:30 <orudge> but I think he's stopped now too
20:29:24 <__ln__> orudge: in the good old days, did the milkman just leave the bottles by the frontdoor in direct sunlight to wait for people to come home some hours later? (or was there someone always at home during the good old days)
20:29:38 <orudge> well, Granny would usually be home if Grandad wasn't
20:29:48 <orudge> and the milk would usually come around pretty early, maybe 6am or so
20:29:52 <orudge> so in reality it wouldn't be out that long
20:31:12 <__ln__> ok
20:32:21 <peter1138> i think milkmen are a dying breed
20:32:27 <peter1138> supermarkets have taken over
20:34:01 <orudge> peter1138 should become a milkman
20:35:57 <__ln__> i agree

23:32:50 <Zuu> kieran491: There exist, autopilot, ap+ as well as the admin port for which there exist two libraries but no ready client.
23:33:28 <Zuu> You might also want to concider that we usually got more servers than the total number of clients.
23:34:19 <Zuu> That said, what we would like the most is if you decide to set up a server, if you keep it up to date when new stable versions come out.
23:35:16 <Zuu> <-- see how many servers that still are on 1.1.0 compared to how many that have upgraded
23:38:10 <Zuu> <--- tells you which is the "last stable" version as well as where it is found on the binaries server (see also comments on
23:39:26 <Zuu> Another option could be to register for the RSS of if you want to do manual upgrades, but get informed when new versions arrive.
23:41:12 <Zuu> Oh, and there is also a php library that can get limited information from a sever by connecting to it the same way as you do in the lobby (without actually joining the game)
