07:35:17 <andythenorth> and also horses
07:35:22 <andythenorth> there should be horses

08:41:38 <__ln__> interesting that both john malkovich and 'claire from lost' are in this town right now, and not even for the same project.

08:57:32 <Coke> Alberth: i was thinking openttd, silly billy. ;)
08:58:15 *** robotx has quit IRC
08:59:12 <Alberth> I guessed as much, but most people that actually write messages here play other games, mostly coding and painting pixels
08:59:46 <Coke> Sonds cool.
09:00:27 <Alberth> you're welcome to come and play too if you like :)
09:07:07 <Coke> I am :)
09:07:10 <planetmaker> there's lots of servers around where people play. Just checkout some and stick around where you like it
09:07:18 <Coke> I'm currently using the 32bpp version
09:07:29 <Coke> My buddy tried connecting, but the original client says the versions are different.
09:07:44 <Coke> Is there any chance of this 32bpp being part of upstream and compatible with other servers/clients?
09:07:47 <planetmaker> you don't need a special version to use 32bpp
09:07:48 <frosch123> yes, versions need to match exactly
09:08:08 <planetmaker> (why do people always confuse extra zoom with 32bpp support?)
09:08:08 <__ln__> SmatZ: 14:20 < frosch123> andythenorth: every os needs to be at least smatz enough to deal with the crappy hardware
09:08:08 <Coke> planetmaker: no? the extra zoom feature install page instructs me to get it
09:08:12 <Coke> yeah.
09:08:25 <Coke> planetmaker: because it's not exactly clear the two are separate
09:08:40 <Coke> but thanks for enlightening me
09:08:44 <planetmaker> yes, the extra zoom people make people believe it's synomymous. It's not
09:08:52 <planetmaker> OpenTTD supports 32bpp for years actually
09:09:09 <planetmaker> but still, nowhere a complete 32bpp graphics set exists
09:09:17 <Coke> Cool. But that extra level of zoom helps when youre on a 1920x1080 screen and play windowed mode
09:09:56 <planetmaker> well, but those version are not compatible with normal builds ;-)
09:10:01 <SmatZ> :D
09:10:36 <Coke> extra zoom is on 1.1.0
09:11:00 <Coke> how come it isn't part of upstream? not stable enough?
09:11:23 <planetmaker> not finished enough
09:11:37 <planetmaker> and there's no extra zoom in 1.1.0
09:12:05 <Coke> planetmaker: ok, but perhaps one day the upstream openttd will have such a feature?
09:12:19 <frosch123> that was said 5 years ago
09:12:20 <planetmaker> quite probably. The question is "when"
09:13:40 <Coke> does it require lots of changes?
09:14:10 <frosch123> depend on who you ask :p
09:14:14 <Coke> i dont really need the fancy graphics, just one more level of zoom would be enough
09:14:37 <frosch123> that part is more likely to hit official versions somewhen
09:14:41 <Ammler> use a OS, which supports zooming
09:15:15 <frosch123> Coke: btw. you can increase the font size in official versions
09:15:37 <frosch123> and there is also a ogfx big gui newgrf, though there are still lots of problems with it
09:20:10 <planetmaker> hm... another neglected point... we need static newgrf support
09:20:34 <planetmaker> though the bigGUI imho preferentially becomes part of the GUI itself

09:39:49 <Coke> does the game mechanics include transfers? if I build a station in nowhere will passengers get off and wait for another train?
09:40:39 <planetmaker> not automatically
09:40:53 <planetmaker> look for transfer orders
09:41:39 <planetmaker> it's different if you play with a version which features cargo destinations... but those are (again) not default openttd versions. Though they're fun
09:41:43 <planetmaker> loads of fun
09:45:17 *** Pulec has joined #openttd

09:58:01 <Coke> I seem to remember finding a list of commodity transport tariffs/prices in the wiki, but cant find it. Anyone want to buy me a clue what to google for?
09:58:41 <duckblaster1> it's available in game
09:59:00 <duckblaster1> graphs -> cargo payment rates
09:59:47 <Coke> thanks a lot!

10:15:03 *** TWerkhoven has joined #openttd
10:37:03 *** andythenorth has joined #openttd
10:49:38 *** Noxbru has joined #openttd
10:52:12 <Noxbru> Hi, I have a question about Lists, is it always necessary to use "foreach ( item, *VALUE* in item_list)" to walk lists ?
10:53:58 <frosch123> you can also use valuators
10:55:09 <frosch123> and there is "for (local i = list.Begin(); !list.IsEnd(); i = list.Next()) {"
10:56:14 <frosch123> i.e. every list has some build-in iterator
10:56:43 <Noxbru> ah, ok, I just wanted to avoid that much code but seems that at the end it was a failure
10:57:04 <frosch123> valuators are most likely the most elegant way
10:57:16 <frosch123> though you cannot use them always
10:57:55 <Noxbru> ok, I just wanted to walk the list and extract the IDs to some extern variables
10:58:39 <KittenKoder> Okies, sorry for that lapse in response. >.<
10:58:48 <KittenKoder> Digging through documentation.
10:59:30 <KittenKoder> Anyone have a good NML example of rail replacement?
10:59:40 <frosch123> swedish rails
11:00:00 <KittenKoder> Well, replacement+expanding of types would be nice, but I can figure out most of it with just one decent example.
11:00:03 <KittenKoder> The source?
11:00:08 <frosch123>
11:00:21 <frosch123> click on repository
11:00:33 <frosch123> browse online, or clone
11:01:09 <Noxbru> yes, in the documentation says that you can use "foreach (town, value in townlist) { }" but i just wanted to know if I have to add the *value* thing, because i haven't used any valuator on the list
11:01:58 <Noxbru> and at the doc of AIList there isn't any info about "foreach"
11:02:04 <KittenKoder> Aha, found it, TY
11:02:14 <frosch123> Noxbru: just ignore 'val' then
11:02:48 <frosch123> that is you have to specify some "val" in the foreach statement, but you do not have to use it
11:02:59 <Noxbru> that's what I'm doing now, thanks!
11:04:34 <KittenKoder> Going to work on a new Maglev track, and maybe even some made up trains .... for personal use but I'll post it all on the forums, I promise.
11:05:28 <frosch123> swedish rails is gplv2
11:05:34 <Noxbru> I was asking that because checking the code of the RoadPathfinder, there's a couple of "foreach (item in item_list)" without any reference to value
11:05:52 <frosch123> so, if you base your work on it, and release it, you have to use gplv2 as well
11:06:53 <frosch123> Noxbru: i do not know that syntax, but i do not know a lot about squirrel. i can only read the api code :)
11:07:14 <frosch123> your best chance is to hope that zuu will join somewhen today
11:07:28 *** andythenorth has quit IRC
11:07:36 <frosch123> yexo is still on the road
11:08:45 <Noxbru> ok, thanks a lot anyway (^_^) I use to code in C and this C++/Squirrel thing is a bit new for me
11:12:31 <Noxbru> see you later
11:12:46 <KittenKoder> Not basing my work on anything, just needed an example of how it's done.
11:12:53 <KittenKoder> I learn better that way, oddly.
11:13:02 <Noxbru> and thanks again frosch123
11:13:05 *** Noxbru has left #openttd
11:13:24 <KittenKoder> Now, I just need the base terrain graphics. >.<
11:13:38 <KittenKoder> Though ....
11:13:49 <frosch123> new railtypes work with overlay
11:13:53 <frosch123> you do not need the grass
11:14:07 <frosch123> just make those parts transparent
11:14:13 <KittenKoder> Oh, sweet, so I just draw the tracks filled in with all transparent color now.
11:14:33 <KittenKoder> Should have been a question. >.<

11:18:43 <CIA-2> OpenTTD: smatz * r22728 /trunk/config.lib: -Codechange: add -Wno-narrowing to cxxflags in order to prevent many useless warnings with GCC 4.7
11:22:17 <KittenKoder> TY frosch123.
11:27:49 <robotz> does a openttd port to tablets (ipad/touchpad) already exist?
11:28:23 *** robotz is now known as robotx
11:28:51 *** robotx is now known as havanab
11:29:33 <frosch123> many ports came and went
11:29:43 *** Brianetta has joined #openttd
11:29:44 <frosch123> no idea whether there is a current one
11:29:49 *** andythenorth has joined #openttd
11:30:36 <Rubidium> I doubt there will be a current ipad port; after all, the public for it is pretty small as you'd need a jailbroken ipad
11:31:25 <Rubidium> and even then, all comments I heard from ipad users is that the buttons are too small
11:32:42 <havanab> i see, actually I m more interested in Touchpad. ok, too small buttons is bad for touch control
11:34:19 <havanab> but thanks for enlightenment
11:35:48 <Rubidium> in any case, in most cases porting is relatively trivial: get the required libraries compiled for the device and the right (gcc) cross-compiler and compile
11:35:49 <KittenKoder> Wasn't there a "big" GUI GRF out?
11:36:19 <Ammler> you didn't really search?
11:37:26 <Rubidium> KittenKoder: most buttons are bigger than busses. If you can't hit a button at normal scale, then you can't hit the bus either
11:37:53 *** andythenorth has quit IRC
11:38:06 <KittenKoder> :p
11:38:12 <Rubidium> and when building with the autorail/autoroad tools it starts to need even more precision
11:38:22 <KittenKoder> I just saw it on the list once, that's all.
11:38:42 <Rubidium> and those are things the big gui grf doesn't/can't do anything about
11:38:50 <KittenKoder> Yeah.
11:38:58 <KittenKoder> I don't get touch screen myself anyway.
11:39:13 <KittenKoder> Fingerprints on my monitor. >.< Eeew.
11:41:09 <havanab> Ammler: aren't you from the german community?
11:41:46 <Ammler> hehe, got it :-P
11:44:36 <havanab> i think i played with you ~2 years ago on your(?) server, :)
11:47:36 <Ammler> I run for about a year a server
11:49:05 <Eddi|zuHause> you mean the swiss forum :p
11:51:03 <havanab> the "german speaking" forum hehe
11:51:55 <havanab> the tt-ms server was cool indeed

12:51:01 <TrueBrain> owh, not 10 days ago I did it too, but today I do it again: OpenDUNE 0.6 released :D:D:D:D /me makes a happy dance
12:52:09 <__ln__> TrueBrain: remember to dance without a rhythm
12:52:47 <Rubidium> oh... does it have free graphics already? ;)
12:52:57 <glx> of course not
12:53:05 <TrueBrain> Rubidium: you volunteering? :)
12:53:23 <TrueBrain> you know what is funny, that all main distros have accepted 'opengfx' as package .. it just makes me smile :)
12:53:30 <TrueBrain> not openttd-opengfx, no, just opengfx :p
12:53:54 * Rubidium ponders what the main distros are
12:54:50 <Eddi|zuHause> > zypper search opengfx
12:54:51 <Rubidium> it can't include arch, debian, fedora or ubuntu
12:54:52 <Eddi|zuHause> | openttd-opengfx | Default replacement graphics for OpenTTD | Paket
12:54:59 <TrueBrain> did I wrote main? Lol: my :D
12:55:02 <TrueBrain> gentoo has it :p
12:55:11 <Prof_Frink> i A openttd-opengfx
12:55:25 <Eddi|zuHause> no, i don't have it installed
12:55:29 <Rubidium> gentoo, freebsd and sabayon have it named opengfx
12:55:37 <TrueBrain> its weird (and maybe clsoe to stupid :p)
12:55:38 <KittenKoder> I know, a bit bland, but easier to see what's what. :p
12:55:40 <TrueBrain> bu it made me smile :)
12:56:09 <Eddi|zuHause> KittenKoder: might be a little high
12:56:10 <TrueBrain> so I tried opengfx with OpenDUNE, but it was ugly :P :D *troll*
12:56:19 <Rubidium> only debian (+ derivates) have openmsx though (of set: arch, debian, fedora, freebsd, gentoo, opensuse, sabayon, slackware & ubuntu)
12:56:46 <Eddi|zuHause> since when is opensuse a debian-derivate?
12:56:54 <KittenKoder> Okies, well this is a rough rendering, but it's my first try. Eddi|zuHause
12:57:12 *** andythenorth has quit IRC
12:57:19 <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: <- it's not listed there
12:57:20 <Eddi|zuHause> KittenKoder: mind that you cannot change the offset of the vehicles, so they might drive next to the rails
12:57:21 <TrueBrain> Rubidium: gentoo also has openmsx
12:57:48 <TrueBrain> just not related to OpenTTD :P
12:57:51 <Rubidium> TrueBrain: not in the list I mentioned before, nor in
12:58:08 <TrueBrain> OpenMSX is an MSX Emulator, so it seems :p
12:58:11 <TrueBrain> no clue what MSX is
12:58:14 <KittenKoder> I'll see what it will do.
12:58:25 <Rubidium> TrueBrain: old game computer of some sorts
12:58:48 <KittenKoder> The only reason I don't like the default maglev tracks is that it's hard to tell where the tracks are in junctions.
12:59:33 <KittenKoder> The Shanghai based ones were cool but messed with all the bridge graphics for me.
12:59:51 <Eddi|zuHause> there's a transrapid track grf
12:59:59 <Eddi|zuHause> that kinda cheated with the height offset :p
13:00:03 <KittenKoder> I didn't like those.
13:00:09 <TrueBrain> Rubidium: but you should never have called it opengfx, always openttd-opengfx :P :P
13:00:43 <TrueBrain> <- awwhh :(

13:18:13 <Rubidium> frosch123: the majority of the netsplit definitely (have) used IPv6 connections
13:18:55 <Rubidium> which is somewhat odd given the penetration of IPv6 is in the percents (if it already reaches 1%)
13:20:16 <Eddi|zuHause> well, 5 of 108 is definitely more than 1% :p
13:23:04 <Rubidium> hmm, true... maybe we're somewhat more tech savy
13:23:20 *** valhallasw has joined #openttd

14:34:12 <Ammler> nice
14:35:12 <Eddi|zuHause> two changes: 1) the fences don't depend on neighbouring trackbits anymore, only on owner, 2) it also considers neighbouring objects etc.
14:35:22 <Eddi|zuHause> 2) should probably get an exception for road
14:40:52 <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: looks great
14:42:52 <Eddi|zuHause> these small fences in the middle of junctions always annoyed me, that's why i play without fences most of the time
14:42:53 <Hirundo> KittenKoder: As of 1 minute ago, the NML repository contains an example railtype grf
14:43:00 <Hirundo> Thought, you might wanted to know :)
14:44:32 <KittenKoder> Woohoo!
14:44:45 <KittenKoder> Erm ... what's the link? >.<
14:45:15 <KittenKoder> Found it. LOL
14:45:23 <KittenKoder> ... and thank you so much.
14:51:19 <Eddi|zuHause> conceptual question: can we make GetTileOwner return OWNER_NONE on void tiles and OWNER_TOWN on house and industry tiles, instead of asserting?
14:58:11 <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: so when you put a road next to your rail it gets no fence?
14:58:31 <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: currently, yes, but that should probably change.
14:58:56 <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: it's rather meant to be for stations, objects, purchased land, ...

15:19:24 <andythenorth> could use-of-YACD be exposed to newgrf?
15:19:53 <andythenorth> e.g. var for 'routing mechanism in this game: original | yacd | [reserved]
15:21:21 <Rubidium> isn't there a feature bit for that?
15:21:41 <Rubidium> or has JGR failed to add that to ttdp?
15:22:02 <andythenorth> I wasn't aware of one :o
15:22:19 <andythenorth> FIRS + yacd is annoying - somewhat good, somewhat bad
15:22:22 <Rubidium> ah... there is one

15:23:03 <andythenorth> I could do a parameter, but parameters suck :P

16:45:57 <Eddi|zuHause> i guess it's near a ferry

17:29:20 <George> Wiki says Supported by OpenTTD 1.2 (r22518)1.2 Adding 0x40 makes the layout an Advanced Spritelayout with register modifiers (to be documented).
17:29:36 <George> Is there any partial documentation?
17:30:01 <George> Some forum discussion or something to read about?
17:30:20 <Eddi|zuHause> George: have you checked the newgrf-technical forum?
17:32:21 <George> I read the first pages list of topica and did not find any that sounds like that
17:33:11 <Coke> Eddi|zuHause: ah, cool.
17:33:14 <frosch123> George:
17:33:15 <Coke> thanks a lot for the info!
17:33:20 <frosch123> the only documentation till now
17:33:43 <frosch123> it will be integrated into the official specs at some time
17:33:49 <Coke> Is there any way I can help out my bad eye sight short of using a magnifying glass?
17:34:13 <George> frosch123: Thank you. Does it work with the trunk?
17:34:17 <Coke> The semaphores pixels are so tough to see, in particular from behind
17:34:17 <frosch123> yes
17:34:38 <frosch123> George: though the examples in the wiki are not actually tested
17:34:44 <Eddi|zuHause> Coke: get a version from 5 years ago and press Ctrl+D
17:35:12 <Eddi|zuHause> Coke: or switch to fullscreen and set lower resolution

18:29:31 <KittenKoder> But I finally figured it all out.
18:29:46 <KittenKoder> Got it all working, stupid version conflicts were just making things not work.
18:36:12 <Coke> Is there a time limit for how long steel and goods are available from an industry?
18:38:10 <Eddi|zuHause> cargo disappears slowly if your rating drops below 50%
18:38:33 <Coke> I see.
18:38:44 <Coke> i guess good players never let it drop below 50?
18:39:00 <Eddi|zuHause> yes, mostly by having always a train waiting
18:40:42 <Coke> does the train cost if it's standing still?
18:41:25 <Coke> do you guys ever play co op?
18:41:27 <KittenKoder> I got the palette screwed up. >.< Animated colors are in the base.

19:39:02 <andythenorth> it's a shame I have to dick around with scenario editor for 40 mins to get a sensible number of industries :(
19:39:03 <andythenorth>
19:39:22 <planetmaker> andy why do you?
19:39:37 <KittenKoder> Tweak the settings.
19:39:45 <planetmaker> high density + more, more more ;-)
19:39:52 <andythenorth> I can't find a setting that will generate a sensible number like that
19:39:57 <andythenorth> especially at that map size
19:40:02 <KittenKoder> Like that image?
19:40:13 <andythenorth> and tweaking it in FIRS only affects balance, not total amount
19:40:28 <andythenorth> yes, like that image ;)
19:40:32 <KittenKoder> It does effect the total amount.
19:40:41 <KittenKoder> But a large number like that is easy breezy.
19:41:02 <andythenorth> it didn't affect the total amount last time I read the code
19:41:16 <andythenorth> although it may have been rewritten since then
19:41:25 <KittenKoder> My preferred setting is Very Low and multiples of the same per town.
19:41:37 <KittenKoder> No.
19:42:24 <KittenKoder> Go into your advanced settings, under economy-industries, check "Allow multiple ...",.
19:42:41 <andythenorth> KittenKoder: thanks
19:42:52 <KittenKoder> Then set it for normal in the generating a new game, you should see something like that. ;)
19:43:04 <andythenorth> but I suspect I've generated at least ^2 more maps than you have ;)
19:43:16 *** Kurimus has quit IRC
19:43:37 <KittenKoder> Unless you are at least 25 years old and started playing TT when it was new, it would be virtually impossible.
19:43:42 <andythenorth> heh
19:43:49 <andythenorth> both of those are true
19:44:09 <KittenKoder> Then most likely you have generated the same number as me.
19:44:11 <andythenorth> but writing/testing FIRS industry generation code basically means spending hours typing 'newgame' in console
19:44:14 <andythenorth> then hitting m
19:44:17 <andythenorth> rinse, repeat :P
19:44:21 <KittenKoder> However, I play with every setting.
19:44:21 <andythenorth> for all map sizes
19:44:59 <KittenKoder> I need to write a batch script in Blender for rendering tracks. >.<
19:45:16 <andythenorth> anyway....a new setting value would be good. Industries: insane :P
19:45:23 <KittenKoder> Can't wait for the 32bpp version now that I figured out NML.
19:45:55 <KittenKoder> andythenorth, I have seen a lot of layouts like that, even on low setting.
19:47:03 <Terkhen> openttd includes 32bpp already
19:47:25 <glx> but not extra zoom
19:47:30 <andythenorth> oh
19:47:37 <andythenorth> where do I start on a map like this? :P
19:47:51 <andythenorth> it's bonkers
19:48:44 <Terkhen> the sea looks empty
19:48:58 <Rubidium> for the (almost) 7 years they're working on 32bpp the output is remarkably small
19:49:01 <andythenorth> hmm

19:51:02 <andythenorth> so that's 40 minutes wasted :P
19:51:14 * andythenorth is done with the game for today in that case
19:51:30 <KittenKoder> Terkhen, why does the GRF still palette them?
19:51:38 <andythenorth> maybe I'll patch the industry setting to add 'insane'
19:51:58 <peter1138> just change the grfs midgame, trololol
19:52:16 <KittenKoder> I think I missed something in the updates. >.<
19:52:49 <Terkhen> KittenKoder: what GRF?
19:52:51 <andythenorth> peter1138: you think I didn't try that? ;)
19:52:58 <andythenorth> no dice
19:52:59 <Rubidium> to be honest, OpenGFX has taken 2 years as well
19:53:17 <andythenorth> FIRS will be 3 in November
19:53:27 <KittenKoder> NML ... which come to think of it ... suddenly the warning makes sense.
19:53:27 <planetmaker> Two years is a reasonable time for 10k sprites
19:53:46 <KittenKoder> 2 years is great time actually.
19:53:48 <Eddi|zuHause> that depends on various things
19:53:59 <Eddi|zuHause> 32bpp lacks some serious momentum
19:54:13 <Terkhen> yes
19:54:21 <Terkhen> unified vision? :P

19:54:55 *** jpx_ has quit IRC
19:55:29 <Terkhen> KittenKoder: OpenTTD supports 32bpp, but that does not means it always work on 32bpp :)
19:55:30 <KittenKoder> What about alpha channel?
19:55:49 <planetmaker> why do you think it's called 32bpp?
19:55:49 <Terkhen> grfs use 8bpp
19:56:02 <Terkhen> and you add the 32bpp sprites separately IIRC
19:56:12 <planetmaker> iirc, yes
19:56:20 <planetmaker> I've never seen it really.
19:56:27 <KittenKoder> Okay, now I'm confused again ... but meh.
19:56:28 <planetmaker> Though (e)grvts might do that
19:56:43 <andythenorth> to change my town grf in SE, I have to delete all towns :P
19:56:52 <andythenorth> so all industries go too
19:56:53 <andythenorth> meh
19:57:03 <Terkhen> if you want to create a 32bpp only NewGRF, use black sprites for 8bpp, but since there is no 32bpp base set, no one will use your 32bpp NewGRF because it will look "wrong" with a 8bpp base set
19:57:07 <andythenorth> and here we see again why changing grfs = no
19:57:14 <Terkhen> and yes, egrvts is the only NewGRF I know that has 32bpp
19:57:15 <Eddi|zuHause> town grf can be added, but the towns themselves don't change immediately
19:57:24 <Eddi|zuHause> if "town" means "houses"
19:57:40 <Eddi|zuHause> so you have to bulldoze all towns, and then click "expand" a few times
19:57:48 <KittenKoder> I like rgvrts
19:58:26 <Eddi|zuHause> KittenKoder: just it's a known broken grf and nobody bothers to fix it
19:58:38 <KittenKoder> Aaah.
20:01:22 <andythenorth> the breaks are minor
20:05:44 <Terkhen> only the horses, or is there anything else?

20:09:36 <andythenorth> I'm inclined to agree
20:09:49 <andythenorth> I was just playing a game that needed horses, but not rest of egrvts

20:13:45 <Rubidium> but how dare you speak of this in such a cryptic language in such a closed community? This needs to be discussed in a much less cryptic language at a much more open place ;)
20:14:18 <Rubidium> (the reusing of bus / truck / tram vehicle IDs for horses that is)
20:14:40 <frosch123> oh no, did rubidum again read in the forbidden forums? :p
20:15:30 <Rubidium> forbidden? It seems to be the place where these kinds of issues ought to be discussed.
20:17:33 <andythenorth> I don't want to know about forbidden forums
20:17:44 <frosch123> they can affect your mind badly
20:18:31 <andythenorth> I am trying to forbid myself the suggestions forum
20:18:37 <andythenorth> but I keep screwing up :P
20:19:02 <andythenorth> wtf 'Adjustable and Different Station Tiles' ?
20:21:02 *** Xrufuian has left #openttd
20:21:20 <Rubidium> frosch123: I've understood that forum correctly if their standpoint is that the whole inter-NewGRF balancing is a problem caused by OpenTTD's "multipool" "misfeature". Thus it only is a problem in OpenTTD and that there are no cases where it could be seen as troublesome in TTDPatch, right?
20:22:53 <frosch123> i think if you use the canadian themepack and if we extent action e so you can disable all grfs except a few specific ones, everything is fine
20:25:56 <andythenorth> basically the solution to all balancing issues is 'use the canadian theme pack'
20:25:59 <andythenorth> :P
20:26:54 <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: why does that need extension? a counter that enumerates all valid grf-ids, a loop, and an action 6 should be possible :p
20:27:28 <frosch123> good point
20:28:15 <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: it ought to just disable itself when it finds e.g. FF "OTT"
20:30:39 * andythenorth considers disabling grfs that are lame
20:31:39 <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: so "lame" being "all except mine"?
20:32:05 <Rubidium> yes openttd.grf is lame
20:32:30 <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: what happens if i disable that by a grf?
20:32:54 <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: you can't disable that
20:33:00 <Rubidium> it doesn't end up in the NewGRF list
20:33:34 <Rubidium> but openttd.grf disables itself when it find that you run ttdpatch
20:33:40 <Rubidium> or a too low version of OpenTTD
20:34:20 <Eddi|zuHause> why are no fences placed above snow line, where they are actually needed the most?
20:35:07 <Coke> Can I remove the implicit stops indefinately?
20:35:13 <Twerkhoven[L]> now cows / less humans to wander onto the tracks
20:35:19 <Coke> THey keep popping back up and the train just stops for a few secs, might as well not stop.
20:35:38 <Twerkhoven[L]> the fences arend the kind that can stop snow effectively anyway
20:35:41 <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: because you haven't patched for that?
20:35:48 <andythenorth> or the bits are used or something?
20:36:45 <Eddi|zuHause> i think there are no bits for it
20:37:13 <Eddi|zuHause> "rail has fence" implies "rail has grass"
20:37:21 <Eddi|zuHause> or something
20:37:39 <Rubidium> Coke: use non-stop orders
20:38:36 <Eddi|zuHause> and why are horses not company coloured? :p
20:39:23 <planetmaker> cows are, if owned by chocolate companies
20:39:48 * Eddi|zuHause wonders what a toblerone cow looks like
20:45:00 <Rubidium> yellow with red accents?
20:46:20 <KittenKoder> Going crosseyed.
20:46:24 <KittenKoder> Need a break.
20:46:50 <KittenKoder> Lining this stuff up is harder than I thought.
20:47:34 <__ln__> yes, having a break is also chocolate.
20:47:44 <KittenKoder> No chocolate. >.>
20:47:45 <KittenKoder> Eeew.
20:48:07 <KittenKoder> Ghost Ship ... that's a break.
20:50:08 <Eddi|zuHause> my cats don't like KitteKat for some reason
