05:25:42 <pjpe> was there ever a time when you could have rail cross over monorail?
05:26:15 <planetmaker> yup. Even now. By bridge and tunnel :-)
05:26:16 <Rubidium> not at the same level
05:26:21 <planetmaker> moin also :-)
05:26:37 <Rubidium> quak
05:27:23 *** HerzogDeXtEr has quit IRC
05:27:29 <pjpe> you europeans
05:27:31 <pjpe> you ever have a burger
05:27:35 <pjpe> with schnitzel as the meat
05:27:38 <pjpe> and sauerkraut as the topping?
05:28:10 <planetmaker> rolls with schnitzel: yes. But I don't call it a burger. But without sauerkraut
05:28:11 <Rubidium> sounds more like Japanese breakfast
05:28:24 <planetmaker> and only at BBQ :-)
05:28:31 <pjpe> it's not as good as you'd think it was
05:28:52 <pjpe> i wish i could buy some good schnitzel here
05:28:56 <pjpe> without going far away
05:29:06 <Rubidium> but what's a Japanese breakfast with rice and raw egg?
05:29:07 <pjpe> have to settle for duck sausage with foie gras
05:29:11 <pjpe> and fries cooked in duck fat
05:29:11 <pjpe> oh well
05:29:12 <Rubidium> s/with/without/
05:29:17 <planetmaker> uh... _raw_ egg?
05:29:26 <Rubidium> planetmaker: yes, raw egg
05:29:38 <planetmaker> Now, that's disgusting :-)
05:30:12 <pjpe> doesn't raw egg give you food poisoning or someting
05:30:14 <planetmaker> Funnily the one week I could enjoy Japan I never got raw egg.
05:30:21 <planetmaker> pjpe, nope
05:30:25 <pjpe> huh
05:30:28 <pjpe> any downside to eating it raw?
05:30:39 <planetmaker> not really
05:30:42 <pjpe> gotta try that
05:30:47 <planetmaker> Unless it is contaminated with salmonella
05:30:54 <planetmaker> which die when you fry or cook it
05:31:02 <planetmaker> thus it's slightly more dangerous
05:31:52 <planetmaker> but I lived my whole life without that happening... there are several food which require egg to be raw and which are not cooked
05:32:00 <Rubidium> <- jummy
05:33:08 <Rubidium> I've also been served carbonara with almost raw egg; it became slightly cooked over time due to the warm pasta (in Japan)
05:33:25 <planetmaker> yup, Carbonara is one of those dishes
05:33:38 <planetmaker> Italian seem to like it ;-)
05:33:47 <planetmaker> Like also in tiramisu
05:34:05 <planetmaker> though... Sauce Hollandaise also is rather raw egg :-)
05:34:54 <planetmaker> hm, you're right, Rubidium, I _did_ see that over there. I just didn't eat it :-)
05:36:07 <Rubidium> Hollandaise is less raw than say... mayonaise
05:36:39 <planetmaker> well... 40°C is a temperature where nearly nothing dies ;-)
05:36:44 <Rubidium> (Hollandaise has to be heated to ~375K
05:36:54 <planetmaker> ehm... no?
05:37:20 <Rubidium> oh... wrong maths
05:37:34 <Rubidium> 335K ;)
05:38:01 <Rubidium> I hate it there's no degree key; makes talking about degrees Celsius so hard
05:38:09 <planetmaker> like °C?
05:38:18 <planetmaker> use a German layout ;-)
05:38:23 <Rubidium> anyhow, 62°C according to wikipedia
05:38:29 <planetmaker> you have the ~ there probably
05:38:59 *** Cybertinus has joined #openttd
05:39:06 <planetmaker> hm, I'd have said like 40°C... but... maybe the egg still survives 60°C
05:40:16 *** Nite_Owl has joined #openttd
05:41:12 <planetmaker> so maybe I'd be better off making Sauce Hollandaise only on Mount Everest and alike ;-)
05:41:29 <planetmaker> Can't get too hot there :-P
05:41:45 <planetmaker> water boils there at 70°C
05:43:20 *** Nite_Owl has quit IRC
05:44:24 <Rubidium> <- that, with a bit of Miso is what I took as breakfast though. Didn't want to experiment too much with my health after the stomach of some others didn't cope well
05:44:59 *** JVassie has joined #openttd
05:45:02 <planetmaker> looks about typical. I'm missing the all-present fish, though
05:47:11 <Rubidium> maybe that's a local thing
05:47:25 <Rubidium> can't remember much fish in Osaka
05:47:44 <planetmaker> My experience is from Kyoto and Kobe. In any case I found the Japanese food easier and nicer to eat than British ;-)
05:47:53 <pjpe> come on guy
05:47:57 <pjpe> can't go wrong with a nice cornish pastie
05:48:03 <pjpe> or shepherd's pie
05:48:52 <planetmaker> you know... there are Itialian, French, Thai, German, Mexican, Japanese, Indian,... cooking books. But I've never seen a British ;-)
05:49:09 <pjpe> don't need one
05:49:12 <Rubidium> I still refuse to go to Burger King due to the quality of something that pretended to be food I got served in the UK
05:49:13 <pjpe> meat + potato + vegetable
05:49:14 <pjpe> done
05:49:26 <pjpe> maybe you some time wrap it in bread
05:49:30 <pjpe> maybe one day you deep fry it
05:50:05 <pjpe> wait do germans ever have a big ol turkey
05:50:08 <pjpe> with mashed potatoes and gravy
05:51:25 <Rubidium> planetmaker: seen a Dutch one?
05:51:48 <planetmaker> actually, I think so, yes
05:51:54 <pjpe> nothing beats a good ol turkey
05:53:54 <__ln__> the germans have a significant minority from turkey
05:54:43 <pjpe> a big ol slab of schwarma meat covered in gravy just isn't the same
05:55:10 <planetmaker> pjpe, so... have you yourself already prepared a turkey then? ;-)
05:55:34 <pjpe> never needed to
05:55:36 <pjpe> that's what my mom is for
05:55:48 <planetmaker> lol
05:58:22 <Rubidium> planetmaker: one plus of the British breakfast is that it isn't all sugary, like the American breakfasts I got
05:58:58 *** JVassie has quit IRC
05:59:03 <planetmaker> admittedly, North America and Africa are the only continents I haven't conciously visited yet
05:59:03 <pjpe> sugary american breakfast?
05:59:05 <Rubidium> and I really don't like that in the morning
05:59:08 <pjpe> usually eggs and bacon
05:59:12 <pjpe> quite salty
05:59:49 <Rubidium> pjpe: try donut (with sugar), muffins, sugary cereals, sugary break with jam
05:59:56 <Rubidium> s/break/bread/
05:59:56 <pjpe> donuts for breakfast?
06:00:01 <pjpe> what kind of sorcery is that
06:00:05 <pjpe> and cereals are best sugary
06:00:29 <Rubidium> they even did something to the milk that made it taste bad (vanilla sugar maybe?)
06:00:47 <pjpe> what
06:00:50 <pjpe> vanilla sugar milk bad?
06:00:54 <pjpe> you're insane
06:00:54 <Rubidium> I would've been happy with a bagel with cream cheese, but no... they didn't have it
06:01:39 <pjpe> huh that's strange
06:02:36 <pjpe> my breakfast is usually just dry mueslix
06:02:39 <Rubidium> then I'm also insane for not liking the Burger King special... salt with blackened fries and frozen fries, and leather on a soggy bun
06:02:40 <pjpe> or dry vector cereal
06:02:42 <pjpe> and then nutella
06:02:44 <pjpe> right out of the jar
06:02:55 <pjpe> oh yeah if you aren't used to fast food in america i wouldn't bother
06:03:08 <pjpe> it only tastes decent to good to those of us who have lived here for a while
06:03:32 <Rubidium> pjpe: well... this instance of Burger King "meal" was given to me in the UK
06:03:47 <pjpe> well blame the uk
06:04:00 <Rubidium> nah, blame the Burger King
06:04:22 <Rubidium> I just refuse to be theree
06:04:38 <pjpe> that too
06:04:39 <Rubidium> oh... too early... too much typos
06:04:40 <pjpe> i like their fries
06:04:43 <pjpe> lots of potato and sugar
06:05:12 <planetmaker> Burger King is also commonly called Würger King here :-P

06:59:14 <pjpe> heat maps for tracks: anyone ever done it?
06:59:24 <Rubidium> yes
06:59:36 <pjpe> oh shit really
06:59:58 <pjpe> 'track statistics'
07:00:30 *** pugi has joined #openttd
07:01:57 <pjpe> grows grass on unused tracks
07:11:13 <pjpe> how much memory do you figure an array of null pointers takes?
07:11:24 <pjpe> well i suppose it doesn't matter what pointer is in the array
07:11:33 <pjpe> which makes this less complicated
07:13:20 *** xahodo has joined #openttd
07:13:24 <Rubidium> 32MiB?
07:14:07 <pjpe> 4 bytes for 32 bit memory?
07:15:03 <pjpe> hmm yeah that makes this idea not so great
07:15:21 <xahodo> Hello
07:15:30 <pjpe> what's the size of a tile?
07:15:54 <Rubidium> 9 bytes
07:16:02 <pjpe> so for a 2048 by 2048 map
07:16:03 <Rubidium> no, I assumed 64 bits
07:16:29 <pjpe> largest map size takes 32 megabytes in memory?
07:16:32 <pjpe> for the tile data?
07:16:55 <Rubidium> more like 36
07:17:10 <pjpe> yeah
07:17:23 <pjpe> my idea was if you have data you only fill in for some tiles
07:17:34 <pjpe> to save processing you only store the ones that need data filled in
07:17:43 <pjpe> have an array for each tile with a null pointer if the data wasn't filled in
07:17:52 <pjpe> otherwise a pointer to the extra tile data object
07:18:08 <pjpe> so if you collected how much a track was used
07:18:23 <pjpe> you'd only have to store the array of pointer to the objects that hold the usage data
07:18:49 <pjpe> but the array of pointers would pretty much double the memory usage for the map
07:19:44 <xahodo> Would it be profitable for memory performance to allocate _m and _me with one malloc?
07:19:57 <pjpe> and unless you do some trickery to keep every extra info object referenced by the one pointer array, you'd need more than one array of pointers
07:20:21 <Rubidium> xahodo: no
07:21:23 <xahodo> ok, I'll drop that idea.
07:21:23 <pjpe> are the devs concerned with a patch using one of the free bytes in the tile data?
07:22:12 <pjpe> or is a nonissue for a while if a patch uses a free byte in a tile
07:24:54 <xahodo> Maybe it's an option to store in a water tile how many of the next tiles iterated over are also water (or canal or river) tiles, this could spare unneeded tile visits.

07:41:58 *** Belugas has quit IRC
07:42:03 <pjpe> i think mine was a bad question to ask
07:44:20 *** Belugas has joined #openttd
07:44:20 *** ChanServ sets mode: +o Belugas
07:44:54 <Rubidium> or just the wrong time to ask it
07:45:19 <Rubidium> but there are plenty of patch(pack|e)s that use some of the free memory
07:46:07 <pjpe> nah i mean i was thinking in the context of the tile data eventually running out of space for new parts of it to use
07:46:11 <Rubidium> xahodo: how would imagine it works? How do you think the iteration works?
07:46:14 <pjpe> but then you could just expand it couldn't you
07:46:32 <Rubidium> yes, that's always possible
07:50:19 <xahodo> As far as I know the iterator blindly tests each and every tile in steps of 16, each round starting at a different offset.
07:51:52 <xahodo> However, it's been a while since I last looked at the relevant code. Been trying to wrap my head around openttd's code for quite a while now.
07:53:36 <Rubidium> that would mean that each tile clearing needs to look at the 8 neighbouring tiles whether they are water and go "back" in the tile loop to change whether the tile can be skipped or not
07:53:37 <xahodo> If the iterator encounters X water tiles in a row (lest just say 8) it could record that in the first water tile so it could simply skip over all those tiles the next time, unless something changes (terraforming).
07:54:35 <Rubidium> even then, last time I checked water wasn't the most expensive; clear tiles were
07:55:19 <Rubidium> to check whether to build 'fences' around farms
07:55:48 <Rubidium> (tree tiles are affected in the same manner)
07:56:31 <Rubidium> though, try it and see how much (or little) it affects performance
07:59:24 <pjpe> fence building really that expensive?
07:59:28 <pjpe> should be a setting to disable that

09:23:43 <krinn> hi all
09:25:11 <krinn> never knew about the blind zone at north of town, anyone could confirm it's a game mechanics weakness ? (see )
09:26:12 <krinn> i mean, never even knew it while playing the game, and i don't remember been victim of that while playing the game
09:27:32 *** MNIM has joined #openttd
09:28:10 <krinn> how the game handle that ? (i mean for the town rating)
09:34:33 *** pjpe has quit IRC
09:35:48 *** xahodo has quit IRC
09:37:17 *** Biolunar has joined #openttd
09:38:53 *** pikka has quit IRC
09:41:02 <Yexo> krinn: there is no blind zone
09:41:50 <krinn> ah, so it's legit to put a station toptile outside town influence while its lower tiles still are within?
09:43:35 <krinn> it's just i'm not sure of frosch answer (i'm not even sure he get what i was speaking of, i'm not really clear sometimes)
09:44:12 <Yexo> why would that not be legit?
09:44:35 <Yexo> I wouldn't advise it, if you serve a station reasonable well it's good for it to be within the town influence
09:44:56 <krinn> well, if the town rating is not affect, the station is doing nothing for the town, but the town might still see the station and hate a "non working" station
09:45:33 <krinn> i could explain the conditions better if you wish yexo
09:46:12 <Yexo> if the town rating is not affected the station is indeed doing nothing, but that includes both the positive and negative effects
09:47:39 <krinn> that kind of station put there, for town my ai name won't even appears in town properties if i look at them so ?
09:48:44 <Yexo> if your company name is not visible in the town properties you haven't effected the town rating at all yet
09:49:20 <krinn> industries are affect too no? and this time it's bad to have no effect vs one that have effect
09:49:48 <Yexo> what do you mean with effect on industries?
09:49:56 <Yexo> just building a station has no effect on industries at all
09:50:07 <krinn> for the cargo distrib ?
09:50:21 <Yexo> industries don't rate your company like towns do
09:50:32 <Yexo> the only thing important for cargo distribution is your station rating
09:50:40 <Yexo> see for how that works
09:51:10 <krinn> i know, but if the station cannot be seen too ? (toptile outside industry influence)
09:51:36 <Yexo> the tile with the station sign has absolutely no influence there
09:52:15 <krinn> ah ok, the only "bad" effect to build north is so just "may hide yourself for a town" ?
09:52:25 <Yexo> yes
09:52:36 <Yexo> if you build tile by tile the exact same thing can happen if you build south
09:52:57 <Yexo> start by building the southern-most tile, then build each tile connecting to the last more north
09:53:05 <Yexo> station sign will keep over the southern-most tile
09:53:24 <Eddi|zuHause> the only "problem" with only the north tile being checked on construction is, you can put airports closer to town in the north than in the south
09:53:49 <Yexo> not sure that is still true
09:53:52 <krinn> i have bypass that Eddi|zuHause that's why i was worry about that
09:53:56 <Yexo> I think frosch fixed that quite some time ago
09:54:20 <krinn> it's still in effect in 1.1.1 Yexo
09:54:21 <Rubidium> isn't it "station flag", not "top tile"?
09:54:34 <Yexo> Rubidium: yes, it is
09:54:43 <krinn> it's always toptile on my tests (but i only build plain station, and not tile by tile)
09:54:57 <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: on construction, there is no station sign yet
09:55:05 <Rubidium> krinn: then build first the SE corner and then overbuild it with the rest you want to build
09:55:29 <krinn> Rubidium, cannot be done on airport :)
09:55:47 <Rubidium> build it against a bus stop
09:56:01 <Rubidium> and then remove the bus stop
09:56:02 <Yexo> Eddi|zuHause / krinn: for the airport noise level the tile of the airport closest to the city center is checked, not the tile with the station sign
09:56:07 <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: it worked like this a few months ago
09:56:12 <krinn> but i have just add a function to see if any part of incoming airport will be indeed inside town influence and it solve the problem find a good spot at north tiles
09:56:28 <Yexo> and it has been that for I think at least a year, maybe two
09:57:17 <krinn> human can easy fall on the gap, ai cannot but ai then just "lost" north tiles
09:59:01 <krinn> thank you Yexo for a clear answer
10:00:41 <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: that's not my observation
10:01:24 <Yexo> that's what the code is doing, so if it doesn't work like that there is a bug
10:07:03 *** Neon has joined #openttd
10:18:48 *** mos|work has quit IRC
10:20:40 <krinn> ah tere's a bad effect of that mechanic, flatten tiles within town influence lower town rating, to finally build a station that won't get rating increase because outside town influence, but that's not a huge issue
10:21:12 <Rubidium> well, you'll always be having that issue
10:21:25 <krinn> you may end with a big station working wonder for a town while the town hate you :)
10:21:26 <Rubidium> even if you center the station flag
10:21:34 <krinn> yes, i just never notice it while been human
10:21:51 <Noldo> the station title is on the first station tile build right?
10:22:06 <krinn> yep, toptile Noldo
10:22:29 <Noldo> so there is always the workaroung to build bus or lorry station first
10:22:32 <Noldo> *d
10:22:50 <krinn> that's a "dirty" hack, and you are suppose to have join stations working
10:23:00 <Yexo> krinn: actually terraforming tiles doesn't influence the town rating at all, as long as the terraforming doesn't include the removal of any trees
10:23:12 <Noldo> :-D
10:24:11 <krinn> Yexo, yes, but lower/higher tiles clean trees, but the fact is that removing tree while building your station will lower your rating, and your station will never let it comes up because still outside
10:24:16 <krinn> but that's a tiny bad effect
10:26:11 <krinn> it just imply that an ai shouldn't build north if not handling town rating, else doing that the ai will remove any others construction within that town
10:26:43 <krinn> but if one build north i suppose he is aware he need to handle town rating so
10:27:10 <Yexo> you don't need to
10:27:19 <Yexo> "Each month players' ratings automatically change: Rating goes up by 5 if it is less than 200. "
10:27:27 <Yexo> and to build a station you only need -200 rating
10:27:42 <krinn> ah yes i forgot that one
10:27:51 <krinn> higher delays only so
10:29:31 <krinn> what you think Yexo AIStation.IsWithinTownInfluence need a change to check each station tiles instead of just its toptile ?
10:30:06 <Yexo> why would it need such a change?
10:30:16 <Yexo> do you propose to change the game behavior or just the API function?
10:30:31 <krinn> the api function
10:30:44 <krinn> if toptile is outside, but some station tiles are within: the function return false
10:30:56 <Yexo> as it should, since the town rating is not affected by that station
10:31:01 <krinn> an api dev might use it to check its station is within town influence and remove when false
10:32:05 <Yexo> if you want to know it for each tile use AITileList_StationType and valuate with AITown.IsWithinTownInfluence
10:32:13 <krinn> i find that bug as i use the function to check an airport is within the town i wish build an airport to reuse it, and while the function was saying false my ai then build another airport in the town
10:32:24 <Yexo> rather AITile.IsWithinTownInfluence
10:32:48 <Yexo> that is the wrong function for that
10:32:59 <krinn> that's what i have done, bypass the AIStation function using mine that check each tiles
10:33:09 <Yexo> you could create a AIStationLis tand filter by AIStation.GetNearestTown
10:33:40 <krinn> nope, weakness in GetNearestTown too
10:34:02 <Yexo> I know, but there is no general way that always works
10:34:05 <krinn> might answer what town is the closest, not what town your airport was build for (when two town are close each other)
10:34:21 <Yexo> the only failsafe thing is keeping a list in memory yourself
10:34:58 <krinn> i think too
10:36:04 <krinn> but as the function is now, the AIStation.IsWithinTownInfluence = 0 usage as it may answer only to the station toptile
10:36:37 <krinn> while it's legit for a AIStation function to answer for the whole station query
10:36:57 <krinn> imo
10:37:51 <Yexo> the function has a very clear usage: it tells you if that stations influences how the town thinks about you
10:38:07 <Yexo> that's the only thing the function is trying to answer, you can't use it for anything else as you have found out
10:39:28 <krinn> i see now :)
10:40:46 <krinn> at least change in the api doc will help like frosch done it, clearer
10:41:02 <krinn> + * If a new station would be build on this tile, the servicing quality of it would
10:41:02 <krinn> + * influence the rating of the town.

11:31:28 <krinn> is there a way to detect the big pole that isn't removable ?
11:31:42 *** Brianetta has joined #openttd
11:32:25 <krinn> not using AITile.IsBuildable as this only answer if something is in the way, not if that something could be remove or not
11:36:01 <Yexo> you can try to remove it in test-mode
11:36:06 <Yexo> afaik that's the only reliable way

11:55:53 <Eddi|zuHause> hm... two things: the "scanning for newgrfs" vastly underestimates the number of grfs, and then spends most of the time at 100%, and then it tells me "missing newgrfs have been deactivated" without telling me what they were...
11:56:41 <Eddi|zuHause> hm...

11:56:48 <Eddi|zuHause> those are my static grfs
11:57:11 <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: you disabled saving the config file?
11:57:26 <Rubidium> as it puts a new estimate in there, based on the amount you had the previous time
11:57:27 <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: not that i know of
11:57:41 <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: this was the first time starting
11:58:01 <Eddi|zuHause> anyway...
11:58:13 <Eddi|zuHause> why does it disable my static grfs?
11:58:48 <Rubidium> no clue
11:59:25 <Rubidium> anyhow, is the estimate better the second time you start?
11:59:27 <Eddi|zuHause> my theory: it's trying to load them before scanning was completed
12:00:11 *** alluke has joined #openttd
12:01:05 <Rubidium> it works fine for me
12:01:11 <Rubidium> or do you have NewGRFs in the intro game?
12:01:27 <Rubidium> i.e. a custom intro game with NewGRFs
12:02:11 <Eddi|zuHause> no, i have the 1.1.x intro game from the contest
12:03:11 <Rubidium> hmm
12:03:13 <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: the estimate looks better the second time
12:04:02 <Eddi|zuHause> but it still tells me about deactivating the grfs
12:04:28 <Rubidium> yeah, that's from the intro game being loaded without any NewGRFs available
12:04:41 <Eddi|zuHause> yes, but it's totally annoying
12:04:42 <Rubidium> not sure whether to disable NewGRFs in the intro game alltogether
12:05:35 <Eddi|zuHause> maybe it should do a special run for the static grfs before trying to load the intro game
12:10:26 <Rubidium> ought to help with the error

12:11:08 <krinn> Yexo, tried the testmode, but cannot use it as valuator, we have a way to bypass that ?
12:11:26 <Yexo> write your own valuator function in squirrel
12:11:37 <Rubidium> use the squirrel valuator from the superlib?
12:11:38 <Yexo> I've done so for admiralai and I believe zuu has included it in superlib

12:12:13 *** ChanServ sets mode: +v glx
12:19:52 <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: rather treat static grfs in the run for the base grfs
12:22:57 <Rubidium> that runs before the config file is read
12:23:21 <Eddi|zuHause> hm... evil...
12:23:40 <Eddi|zuHause> is there a reason for that?
12:24:08 <Rubidium> for -h there's no need to load the config file, but it should list the base sets
12:24:44 <Eddi|zuHause> not sure i buy this argument...
12:26:28 <Rubidium> in any case, I'm somewhat considering using the grfid + md5checksum as identifier in the config file
12:26:31 *** douknoukem has quit IRC
12:27:03 <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: how does that help if you didn't scan the files yet to identify them?
12:27:33 <Rubidium> not, but that would make scanning for the static newgrfs in the base set scan pointless
12:27:38 <Eddi|zuHause> i think ini is kind of a suboptimal format for newgrf info
12:28:18 <Eddi|zuHause> you have filename, grfid, md5sum, version, parameters
12:29:13 <Eddi|zuHause> but for the presets, they should get the updated version automatically when you download updated grfs from bananas
12:30:01 <Rubidium> more something like: there are newer versions of some of the NewGRFs. Should those newer versions be taken?
12:31:07 *** sla_ro|master has joined #openttd
12:31:18 <Eddi|zuHause> i never had this problem before bananas, because i usually overwrite the files with the new version (making backups of old), so it gets taken automatically, since presets only take directory/filename into consideration
12:31:27 <Eddi|zuHause> but in bananas, the version is part of the filename
12:31:37 <Eddi|zuHause> so it won't get automatically updated
12:32:35 <michi_cc> Presets need to get palette information, otherwise mixing DOS/windows grfs without Action 14 is a hassle.
12:32:55 <Eddi|zuHause> right, i forgot that
12:35:28 <Rubidium> michi_cc: that's more a NewGRF related setting, not preset related
12:36:50 <michi_cc> Well, yes, but presets exacerbate it because you still need to open the NewGRF window to fix the palette. If you have it open anyway, it's less of a problem.
12:37:44 <Rubidium> yes, but rather store it once than for each time you add it to a preset
12:40:13 <michi_cc> That would be even better of course.

18:32:47 <Wolf01> hello
18:32:57 *** Ackmey has quit IRC
18:34:43 * Zuu thinks loundly about introducing some word to define an airport "blueprint". Eg. the equivalent of what an engine is to a vehicle for airports.
18:35:16 <Zuu> Then AIAirport could be split into AIAirport (similar to AIVehicle) and AIAirportBlueprint (similac to AIEngine)
18:35:41 <Zuu> First I though about using the name AIAirportType, but then we have the concept of views that would be inside that class as well.
18:35:51 <SmatZ> as an idea, I like it
18:35:58 <Zuu> Though, it might not be that bad still. A type HAS views. Not the other way around.
18:36:03 <SmatZ> not sure what it would break & stuff
18:36:49 <Zuu> NoAI have backward compatibility layers, and there has to be some significant changes to support NewGRF airports anyway, so now is a good moment to introduce a such split.
18:37:11 * SmatZ thinks the same
18:40:54 <Zuu> The AIAirportType class will get quite some functions so I think it will increase the clearness of the API if it is not also mixed with already built airports.

20:13:25 <Zuu> is the cost char * ansi?
20:13:42 <LordAro> i have no idea... :)
20:14:00 <Zuu> or do you also have to figure out which ansi extension that is in effect and do unicode conversion? (assuming Uchar is a unicode char)
20:14:31 <Rubidium> but OpenTTD uses no UChar in any of its internal 'APIs'
20:14:50 <LordAro> Rubidium: it is something to do with ICU

20:45:48 <Yexo> there are some open questions for newgrf airports that have to be answered first
20:46:07 <Yexo> last idea is letting openttd figure out the holding pattern automatically
20:46:25 <Yexo> would be great if possible, and that would make detecting which aircraft are in the holding pattern possible
20:55:47 <Zuu> I read yesterday about the ideas regarding the holding pattern moving out of the FTA. So I will leave that for now and continue with my other ideas. (the holding thing is what I though was most advanced on beforehand)
20:58:16 <Zuu> My plan:
20:58:59 <LordAro> Paste #cLpGXFWbuwTMKc7jszvC? thats not an integer... :)
20:59:39 <glx> it is, just in a different base
21:00:08 <Zuu> First my idea was to provide AIAirport.GetHoldingCount or something like that, but after some though I figured out that it would be to benefitical compared to what APIs that are for other transport systems. Thus only having AIVehicle.IsInHolding should be more equal among the transport modes.
21:01:52 <Zuu> LordAro: it doesn't even claim that it is a number.
21:02:14 <Zuu> Oh, well yes on the page maybe. but not in the url..
21:02:23 <Yexo> LordAro: if you tick the box "private" while posting you'll get such an url
21:02:41 <Yexo> still publicly visible, but nobody can guess the url anymore
21:03:11 <Yexo> Zuu: CanPlaneTypeLand conceptually belongs in AIAirportType, but depending on newgrf implementation it might not be possible
21:03:30 <Yexo> for a newgrf the most logical implementation would be to make that function a callback of an existing airport
21:03:44 <Yexo> which means that an AI could only call it when an airport of that type exists
21:04:32 <Yexo> oh, and only with an actual existing vehicle, not with a vehicle type
21:05:12 <Yexo> I'm still wondering how useful GetNumHelipads and GetNumTerminals are
21:05:34 <Yexo> what about airports where the helipads and terminals overlap? both functions could return 4, while there would be only 4 spots in total, not 8
21:06:03 <Yexo> also for the default airports the city and metropolitan airports would return the same, so it's not an adequate measure of performance
21:07:43 *** Zuu_ has joined #openttd
21:07:44 <Zuu_> There is a flag for short strip, if helicopters can land and a third flag for if airplanes can land.
21:07:51 *** DOUK has joined #openttd
21:08:40 <Zuu_> My idea was to combine the last two and provide CanPlaneTypeLand instead to make it more general and possible forward compatible for more plane types.
21:09:11 <Yexo> <Zuu_> There is a flag for short strip, if helicopters can land and a third flag for if airplanes can land. <- those flags are only for the default airports
21:09:15 <Yexo> newgrf airports will get much more freedom

21:10:58 *** Zuu has quit IRC
21:11:23 <Zuu__> Yexo: How should an AI know which airport to build if it can't know if it can be used for eg. helicopters or planes?
21:11:27 <LordAro> Zuu/Zuu_/_Zuu_/Zuu__/Leif__ is having connection issues? :)
21:11:44 <Yexo> I'm not sure about that, that's one of the things I'm wondering about now ;)
21:11:47 <Zuu__> LordAro: Yes, and if you know my hostmask you'll see I'm not at home.
21:12:13 <LordAro> mibbit doesn't show them...
21:12:34 <LordAro> and my kvirc is out of action
21:12:58 <Zuu__> Also, how will a player know which airport to build as well if it can't know what it supports?
21:13:19 <Yexo> player can read readme.txt / do a testgame
21:13:24 *** douknoukem has quit IRC
21:13:37 <Yexo> main problem is that we have more "types" than just plane / helicopter
21:14:16 <Yexo> there will be aircraft capable to land only on sea, or sea and land, there might be zeppelins that require a special zeppelin pylon
21:15:14 <Zuu__> Unless NewGRF will be allowed to dynamically reject aircrafts, I wouldn't it be possible for them to define an accept/reject table?
21:15:34 <Yexo> yes, I think that's the correct solution
21:15:41 <Eddi|zuHause> looks like kaffeine nowadays has a feature to buffer stuff in memory if the recording HD is full
21:16:13 <Zuu__> Or if you want to, exclude the table and only let OpenTTD read the FTA blocks for the availability of certain infrastructure elements. Though the later would probably allow NewGRFs to place traps.
21:16:19 <Yexo> maybe still via a callback, but than a callback that is called on airport type and with only static vehicle type data, so openttd would be able to cache the result
21:16:34 <Eddi|zuHause> at least it's now using like 3GB of memory and everything is really sluggish
21:17:08 <Yexo> detecting infrastructure via FTA is not possible
21:17:13 *** Zuu_ has quit IRC
21:18:21 <Zuu__> A callback would be fine as long as it can be called without having a such airport built. Using only static engine data would also help a lot as you need an airport before you can build an aircraft.

21:21:15 <Zuu_> Hmm, my cellphone used as modem is more reliable than this connection...
21:22:35 <Yexo> meh, where is zephyris when you need him
21:23:37 <frosch123> Yexo: whether an airport can handle an aircraft must be known without an actual vehicle
21:23:49 *** netantho has joined #openttd
21:23:51 <frosch123> as you certainly also want to hide those aircraft from the purchase list :)
21:23:58 *** netantho has quit IRC
21:24:02 *** Fuco has quit IRC
21:24:18 <Zuu_> That's also a good point :-)
21:24:20 <Yexo> frosch123: yes, at some point the spec had two different callbacks: one for being able to land and one for buying at the airport
21:24:52 <Zuu_> and all types were able to take off?
21:25:10 <Yexo> basically yes
21:25:25 <Yexo> it was assumed that if a type is not able to take off you can't buy it at the airport and neither would it be able to land
21:25:27 *** Fuco has joined #openttd
21:25:28 <Zuu_> althrough if you can't buy them, it's hard to make them take off ;-)
21:25:47 <Zuu_> can't buy them nor land them*
21:25:58 *** Fuco has quit IRC
21:26:00 <Eddi|zuHause> changing grfs midgame :p
21:26:11 <Yexo> back to the problem at hand: how to generate a holding pattern given one or more entry points (=position + direction)
21:26:37 <Yexo> Getting the entry points might already require calling a newgrf callback, since the entry points could depend on the airport type
21:26:58 *** Zuu__ has quit IRC
21:27:05 <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: from the entry point a 180° curve (left), straight on, 180° curve (left), straigh on (back at entry point)
21:27:15 <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: each section about same length (time-wise)
21:27:22 <frosch123> maybe small/large aircraft and heliport should work like railtypes
21:27:27 <Yexo> Eddi|zuHause: and now with 3 random entry points?
21:27:32 <frosch123> i.e. stuff like compatible landing places and such
21:27:41 <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: one holding pattern for each entry point
21:27:44 <Yexo> consider that 2 of those entry points might be next to each other in the same direction?
21:28:13 <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: add pseudo-random height, so they won't collide
21:28:17 <Yexo> frosch123: maybe, but that doesn't help
21:28:22 <Zuu_> Divide the airspace around an airport in four sectors. With dividers going north-west, north-east, south-east and south-west. In each sector restrict the allowed direction so that one can't set very insane direction/location combinations?
21:28:42 <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: the discussion is more about finding a bezier curve given the current aircraft position and direction, and the landing position/direction
21:28:57 <Zuu_> Althrgouh that will probably limit holding patterns to be only clockwise/counter-clockwise depending on how the spec is decided.
21:29:02 <Yexo> eddi: colliding is not the issue, how to generate a path so both entry points are visited about equally
21:29:03 <frosch123> but it must be integerish and the radius shall limit the speed
21:29:07 <Eddi|zuHause> ah, from random direction into holding pattern
21:29:34 <Yexo> no, we want to completely automatically generate the actual holding pattern
21:29:39 <Yexo> given one (or more) entry points
21:29:50 <Yexo> for one entry points it's trivial, as you showed in your first answer
21:30:13 *** Pulec has quit IRC
21:30:25 *** Fuco has joined #openttd
21:30:32 <frosch123> an entry point is a runway/helipad here, not something in the holding pattern
21:31:03 <Zuu_> Thanks for that clarification. I though you ment the entry point in the holding pattern.
21:31:27 <Yexo> sorry for that confusion
21:31:37 <Eddi|zuHause> so you make one holding pattern for each entry point, and distribute the incoming aircraft into these holding patterns, depending on how many planes are already holding there, with some bias on which direction the plane comes from (so it more likely takes the nearest one)
21:32:09 <SmatZ> Fuco: you are in .cz now?
21:32:10 <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: or one holding pattern for the whole airport and every aircraft picks the nearest available entry
21:32:15 <Eddi|zuHause> "entry point" imho is the position where landing starts. if a plane comes there and the runway is not free, it enters the holding pattern which lasts X ticks until it gets back
21:32:15 <Zuu_> Eddi|zuHause: How far away do you make the desicion on where to go?
21:32:20 <Fuco> SmatZ: not right now, no
21:32:31 <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: i think that's a bad idea
21:32:34 <Yexo> frosch123: compatible landing places already goes wrong with water aircraft: I can easily give 3 types that are partly incompatible: A. land only B. water only C. land and water
21:32:35 <Fuco> my server is in cz tho
21:32:39 <SmatZ> Fuco: ok, your hostmask is ... ok :)
21:32:54 <michi_cc> And taking the properties of the entry point and aircraft into account, i.e. assign large aircraft only to long runway etc
21:33:06 <Fuco> I'm at home right now (slovakia ;))
21:33:20 <michi_cc> The pattern itself can be the standard holding pattern:
21:33:42 <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: imho you should decide the entry point when in X distance from the airport, and never change the decision again
21:33:47 <Yexo> if we divide the aircraft over the entry points before they enter the holding pattern that is a good solution michi_cc
21:34:10 <CIA-2> OpenTTD: frosch * r22816 /trunk/src/ (roadveh_cmd.cpp train_cmd.cpp vehicle.cpp): -Feature(ette): [NewGRF] Also age wagons and articulated parts.
21:34:30 <frosch123> hmm, true, i think rv do the same
21:35:10 *** Vikthor has quit IRC
21:36:09 <Yexo> so: fly towards center of airport, when at distance X get all possible entry points (airport callback?), pick entry point with lowest amount of aircraft in holding, join holding pattern for that entry point
21:36:18 <michi_cc> Compatible landing place can work, assign a type to the landing place (e.g. 'LARG', 'SMLL', 'WATR' or whatever) and each aircraft gets a list of allowed landing classes. If a suitable default set of classes is defined, there should be not too much other classes except for special vehicle types.
21:36:59 <frosch123> Yexo: yeah
21:37:05 <michi_cc> Or split by class (water, land, heli) and length and each aircraft gets compatible classes and a minimum length
21:38:04 <Yexo> as long as it's the vehicle defining the compatible landing places it can work
21:38:56 <michi_cc> The wiki page even has diagrams for entry into the holding pattern from each direction.

21:54:38 *** Neon has quit IRC
21:54:46 <Zuu_> Yexo: Wouldn't it be the engine that decides it? Or is the vehicle <-> engine separation not used in the NewGRF domain?
21:55:09 <Yexo> you're right, the engine
21:55:35 <Yexo> I just meant engine instead of the airport or the classes themself, like it works for railtypes
21:55:50 <Yexo> railtypes define compatibility with eachother, not engines with multiple railtypes
21:56:49 <Eddi|zuHause> that concept has certain limitations
21:57:06 <Eddi|zuHause> like the TOE set that wanted dual-voltage engines
21:57:15 <Yexo> it has, indeed
