02:52:06 <Hinrik> when determining the payment for cargo, is it the actual map distance between industries which matters, or just the distance traveled?
02:52:41 <planetmaker> distance between station signs
02:53:22 <Hinrik> so, if I had a coal mine and power station in close proximity, it would actually make sense to have the train take a long zig-zag route to get more money?
02:53:41 <planetmaker> no.
02:53:41 <Hinrik> oh, wait, between stations, ah
02:53:58 <Hinrik> ok, that makes sense
03:13:42 *** glx has quit IRC
03:42:47 <Hinrik> hm, it seems to be pretty much impossible to build an intercontinental airport where it might be useful
03:43:09 <Hinrik> due to noise
03:43:37 <Hinrik> even though the coverage area doesn't reach the town, they still refuse
03:45:00 <Hinrik> and this is next to where the transport rating is 'Good'
03:46:38 <planetmaker>
03:46:40 <Pinkbeast> Isn't that "total airports per town"?
03:47:33 <pjpe> have a shuttle bus to get to the airport
03:47:37 <pjpe> or shuttle
03:47:39 <pjpe> MONORAIL
03:47:41 <pjpe> ogdenville has one

04:56:18 <George> Is it possible to have procuderes that are severalactions 2, not a single line? (
04:59:38 <George> can this be a procedure?
05:00:41 <George> all this huge code is only used to define 2 values (in 7D 00 and 7D 01) for future calculation
05:04:17 <George>
05:04:48 <George> I need it for several tiles, so want not to copypaste it
05:17:43 <Pikka> all of owen's servers are so slow for me today, but I don't see why it's not possible
05:20:13 <George> so the only requrement is to return 8xxx value?
05:20:39 <George> And is it ok that this procedure is not for CB, but for drawing graphics?

09:21:50 <Hirundo> George: I have not studied your code in detail, but in general a procedure calls can consist of as many action2s as you'd want as long as the chain terminates with a callback result
09:22:03 <Hirundo> you can even do nested procedure calls if you wish
09:23:49 <George> Then I'll make a topic on the tt-forums for that case. I'm going to make a big procedure and I want some help. Also I hope my example could be useful for future GRF coding (as example)
09:24:25 *** Neon has quit IRC
09:30:47 <Hirundo> you can do procedure calls in the gfx callback also, but you can't return a graphics result directly from there
09:31:17 <Hirundo> if you do that, the procedure call returns with 0xFFFF in ottd/new ttdpatch, or some undefined value in old ttdpatch
09:33:44 <Terkhen> good morning
09:54:54 <appe> yes/no?
10:15:09 <Eddi|zuHause> i'd say "file not found", but that's probably too much of an in-joke ;)

13:18:51 <PeanutHorst> i would like to know if an issue i am having is a bug or a feature.
13:19:08 <PeanutHorst> basically, there are railway (conventional) carriages, but no locomotives.
13:19:14 <PeanutHorst> steps to reproduce: start a game in 2100.
13:19:28 <Yexo> you need to build electric engines
13:19:32 <Yexo> or monorail / maglev even
13:19:36 <Rubidium> that's a "feature"
13:19:45 <Yexo> hold you mouse down while clicking on the "build railway" button in the toolbar to see a list of railtypes
13:19:48 <PeanutHorst> uh, i do not have electric locomotives.
13:19:49 <Rubidium> the wagons work on all railtypes, the engines don't
13:19:50 <PeanutHorst> that is the problem
13:20:00 <Yexo> alternatively you can enable the "engines never expire" option in the game settings
13:20:04 <PeanutHorst> only monorail and maglev
13:20:17 <PeanutHorst> hr,m
13:20:28 <Yexo> that depends on the climate, there are no electric engines in arctic and tropic by default
13:21:49 <PeanutHorst> ...
13:21:55 <PeanutHorst> i'm playing arctic.
13:22:13 <PeanutHorst> bugger me, this is ridiculous... oh well, maglev time! it's the future, and all ._.
13:22:34 <Yexo> <Yexo> alternatively you can enable the "engines never expire" option in the game settings <- there is your solution if you want to keep playing with normal rail engines
13:22:37 <Eddi|zuHause> well, you can load NewGRFs which change this
13:22:51 <PeanutHorst> ah, i'm playing bare atm as i'm hosting a game multi over the internet
13:22:52 <Yexo> you might need to type "resetengines" in the console after changing that setting to fix your savegame
13:22:57 <PeanutHorst> but yes, i'll play with newgrfs a bit later
13:23:31 <PeanutHorst> Yexo: nah, i'll enjoy the schwing factor of the chimaera :D but i'll note that fix for next time, and also hover here. thanks kindly!

15:02:28 <PeanutHorst> hey, has anyone ever tried getting openttd to work on classic mac os?
15:03:07 <PeanutHorst> the thought's just occurred to me that it might be possible with a lot of patience, and i'll probably try at some point (i'm in an insane mood), but I just wanted to know if anyone else was my kind of crazy and had tried.
15:03:29 <Ammler> it worked in past
15:03:32 *** Kurimus has quit IRC
15:03:46 <Ammler> I guess, with 0.6
15:03:56 <Rubidium> Ammler: are you sure?
15:04:17 *** Brianetta has quit IRC
15:04:41 <PeanutHorst> Ammler: i'm guessing a lot's changed since then :p
15:04:54 <PeanutHorst> but iot's a start!
15:05:24 <Ammler> Rubidium: no, just guessing, time as Bjarni made the bins
15:05:49 <peter1138> for pre-os x?
15:05:51 <Rubidium> then you're guessing quite wrong
15:06:30 <PeanutHorst> peter1138: yeah, os 8.6 and 9
15:06:42 <PeanutHorst> i'm not really expecting to compile for system 7 on a 68k
15:06:50 <PeanutHorst> but being able to play on my power mac might be a nice diversion
15:06:59 *** pugi__ has joined #openttd
15:07:07 <__ln__> i STRONGLY doubt ottd ever worked on MacOS classic
15:07:30 <Ammler> only osx bins
15:07:47 <PeanutHorst> ah, Ammler, i meant os 9, hence "classic"
15:07:52 *** pugi has quit IRC
15:07:53 *** pugi__ is now known as pugi
15:07:58 <PeanutHorst> i know os x is still supported, it's too unixish to not be :p
15:08:00 <Rubidium> 0.1.4 has only MacOSX binaries; nobody ever made any earlier binaries AFAIK
15:08:14 <Rubidium> unless you're talking about MorphOS and such
15:08:28 <PeanutHorst> oooh, morphos >:3
15:08:57 *** DayDreamer1 has quit IRC
15:09:25 <__ln__> i wonder if the latest Macs with classic are even powerful enough to run OTTD, even if someone managed to compile it.
15:10:18 <Eddi|zuHause> PeanutHorst: there are lots of things not-unix-y enough to make it a real trouble to support OS X
15:11:11 <peter1138> __ln__, power mac g4 should be able to cope
15:14:40 <PeanutHorst> __ln__: if a DOS machine can cope...
15:15:07 <PeanutHorst> what's the average on that, a 486dx2?
15:15:16 <PeanutHorst> let's be generous and say openttd would want a pentium 166 mmx
15:15:26 <peter1138> openttd is probably a bit more demanding that ttd was...
15:15:41 <PeanutHorst> yes, but if it still targets DOS as more than a "look, we can target DOS"
15:15:41 <Eddi|zuHause> i ran original transport tycoon on a 386 DX 25
15:15:47 <__ln__> PeanutHorst: OTTD will definitely not run on a 486dx
15:15:49 <PeanutHorst> it has some expectations about what a DOS machine is
15:15:52 <peter1138> PeanutHorst, it doesn't :)
15:15:58 <Eddi|zuHause> although it significantly slowed down with more than 5 trains :p
15:16:07 <PeanutHorst> peter1138: so it targets DOS for show then? :P
15:16:26 <peter1138> i don't know if it even works...
15:16:41 <PeanutHorst> hrm
15:16:46 <PeanutHorst> shame
15:16:46 <__ln__> besides, who says you can't install DOS on a brand new Core i7?
15:17:02 <PeanutHorst> i had a 486dx4 here that I was thinking of compiling OpenTTD for, just to see if it would be possible to enjoy :p
15:17:26 <Rubidium> it works besides networking
15:17:30 <PeanutHorst> __ln__: uh, common sense, given that most new computers don't even really use a proper BIOS
15:17:42 <Rubidium> on computers where allegro supports the hardware
15:17:44 <peter1138> they don't?
15:17:44 <PeanutHorst> Rubidium: shame, what's needed to get networking going under DOS?
15:17:48 <Eddi|zuHause> DX4? did such a thing exist?
15:17:53 <peter1138> Eddi|zuHause, yes
15:17:57 <PeanutHorst> Eddi|zuHause: yes, but it was really a 3x multi
15:18:00 <PeanutHorst> 3x 33 == 100
15:18:10 <PeanutHorst> hence you have 3.3v part intel dx4-100
15:18:12 <Eddi|zuHause> 3x33 is DX2
15:18:19 <Rubidium> PeanutHorst: some library, don't know which one exactly
15:18:19 <peter1138> 2x33
15:18:22 <PeanutHorst> Eddi|zuHause: ... oh no you didn't. DX2 is 66
15:18:33 <Eddi|zuHause> DX is 2x33
15:18:36 <Rubidium> PeanutHorst: and probably quite a number of other changes
15:18:38 <Eddi|zuHause> SX is 33
15:18:41 <PeanutHorst> no it isn't
15:18:43 <peter1138> nope :)
15:18:45 <PeanutHorst> SX is non-floating point
15:18:45 <peter1138> DX is 33
15:18:47 <PeanutHorst> DX is fpu
15:18:51 <PeanutHorst> SX and DX are 33
15:18:58 <Eddi|zuHause> hm, then my impression is wrong
15:19:07 <PeanutHorst> quite.
15:19:08 <peter1138> how could you not know about 20 year old obsolete processors? :p
15:19:11 <Eddi|zuHause> i had an SX 25 laptop
15:19:15 <PeanutHorst> peter1138: he's from germany
15:19:19 <PeanutHorst> they're only state of the art there
15:19:22 <PeanutHorst> i know, i'm german ;)
15:19:43 <Eddi|zuHause> it should still work, but the battery is dead
15:19:54 * peter1138 had a DX2 66 that was actually an overclocked 50
15:20:06 <peter1138> found that out a bit late to complain :p
15:20:13 <PeanutHorst> peter1138: hahaha what
15:20:19 * __ln__ had a DX33
15:20:35 <PeanutHorst> i'm hoping with adequate cooling it might be possible to configure a DX4-100 to run at 40 x3, or 120
15:20:43 <PeanutHorst> just give it a bit of a bootst
15:20:52 <peter1138> well, there were official DX4-120s
15:20:58 <PeanutHorst> back in those days, extra MHz actually meant something
15:21:06 <peter1138> it still does
15:21:15 <peter1138> 2.4 -> 3.0 is rather noticable for me
15:21:25 <Eddi|zuHause> i took the processor with the lowest speed
15:21:39 <PeanutHorst> peter1138: not intel, not - there was Am486, and there was Cyrix 5x86-133 (internally 4x, configured as 2x on the mobo, 33MHz bus)
15:21:43 <__ln__> peter1138: overclocked a q6600?
15:21:48 <peter1138> exactly
15:22:24 <peter1138> PeanutHorst, might've been an amd, yeah, still it was officially a dx4 120
15:22:34 <Eddi|zuHause> i had a Cyrix 6x86-200 (i think)
15:22:35 <__ln__> i tried the same, but at least with that bios version, lost the speedstep functionality as a consequence, so it wasn't an option.
15:22:41 <Eddi|zuHause> but it blew up
15:22:45 <peter1138> probably slower than than intel dx4 100 though, heh
15:22:47 <PeanutHorst> Eddi|zuHause: that's a socket 5 processor
15:22:51 <PeanutHorst> or a socket 7, perhaps
15:22:52 <peter1138> Eddi|zuHause, they did that :)
15:23:30 <peter1138> __ln__, i only get 66% and 100% anyway
15:23:38 <peter1138> 1.6/2.4 (or 2.0/3.0)
15:25:04 <peter1138> i tend to set it to 3.0 anyway
15:25:18 <peter1138> cos linux is a bit dumb and doesn't always ramp it up when it should
15:25:53 <peter1138> some games stay stuck at 2.0, but they run much faster when 3.0 is used
15:26:23 <__ln__> are you using the intel boxed cooler or something bigger?
15:26:23 <peter1138> something to do with waiting briefly for the gpu, i blieve
15:26:39 <peter1138> freezer pro 7 or something like that
15:26:50 <peter1138> i never tried it with the stock cooler
15:27:05 <peter1138> i never tried more than 3 either

15:27:56 <kbrooks> hello
15:28:12 <kbrooks> I tried pressing ctrl+alt+c
15:28:26 <peter1138> did your computer explode?
15:28:30 <kbrooks> and the cheat window did not load.
15:29:08 <kbrooks> openttd 1.1.0...
15:29:47 <kbrooks> should i try latest stable and see?
15:30:37 <peter1138> did you try ctrl-alt-shift-c
15:30:45 <peter1138> or maybe that wasn't the alternative combination
15:31:22 <Yexo> ctrl-alt-win-c is the alternative one
15:31:41 <peter1138> (and, of course, are you in a single player game, not networked...)
15:31:54 <kbrooks> thx peeter, and im in single
15:34:14 <confound> misread that as "I'm single" and I was wondering when this became a pickup spot
15:35:31 <kbrooks> funny

15:47:24 <Elukka> nobody would happen to know a place to go to for reference pics and such of prussian wagons?
15:47:36 <Elukka> best i can think of is the catalogs of model rail companies
15:47:54 <Elukka> which while reasonably accurate are usually pretty limited

18:26:25 <Alberth> perhaps indirectly (as in making it more difficult to produce goods needed by towns)?
18:26:50 <V453000> hmm, but do towns _need_ goods?
18:27:33 <Alberth> (I am however quite sure you are much better up-to-date with town growth conditions ;) )
18:28:00 <Alberth> depends on climate afaik
18:28:26 <Alberth> (and perhaps not exactly 'goods')
18:29:43 <Eddi|zuHause> FIRS gives Goods the TE_WATER flag, so they are needed in desert
18:29:54 <V453000> oh :) thanks Eddi
18:30:32 <Eddi|zuHause> (it will say that in the town window)
18:31:29 <planetmaker> __ln__: 1.1.3-RC1 should work (again) as static... he could just download and unzip
18:33:06 <kbrooks> hey
18:33:44 <kbrooks> so when i click on go to in the vehicle window and click on a sation it doesn't wwork properlyy
18:34:13 <__ln__> planetmaker: i think he found some way, at least he joined the server. :) but thanks
18:34:23 <Elukka> in my experience cities grow almost uncontrollably fast even with the slowest setting and with only passenger service
18:34:52 <Elukka> though that could be cargodist's indirect doing
18:36:59 <Alberth> kbrooks: 'does not work properly' is not something we understand
18:37:22 <kbrooks> when i click on the station it does noot show in the orders
18:37:36 <Alberth> wrong type of station?
18:37:56 <Alberth> (bus to train station, bus to lorry station, truck to bus station?
18:38:02 <kbrooks> hmm
18:38:05 <kbrooks> youre riight
18:38:07 <kbrooks> thx
18:38:25 <Alberth> yw :)
18:38:45 <Eddi|zuHause> "Paypal tries to enforce USA's Cuba embargo onto german companies and their customers"
18:39:15 <Alberth> duh :)
18:40:14 <Alberth> what else would you expect from a True Americal Company?
18:40:20 <Alberth> *American
18:40:56 <Rubidium> true? In what sense?
18:41:31 <Alberth> in being American, of course
18:42:19 <z-MaTRiX> hiiii
18:42:19 <Rubidium> but why am I paying a Luxembourgian company?
18:42:58 <Wolf01> less taxes
18:43:07 <z-MaTRiX> because its cool to play an exotic company
18:43:08 <Eddi|zuHause> subsidiaries
18:43:12 <Alberth> or do you know an american company that ignores what the american politicians say, for their outside America clients?
18:43:13 <z-MaTRiX> offshore
18:43:32 <Eddi|zuHause> luxemburg doesn't even have a shore :p
18:43:40 <z-MaTRiX> no matter
18:44:25 <Rubidium> Alberth: yes...
18:44:43 <z-MaTRiX> you will make a bank account in switzerland
18:44:47 <Rubidium> e.g. google; I doubt the American politicians are fine with the filtering for China etc.
18:46:07 <z-MaTRiX> who needs filtering?
18:46:17 <z-MaTRiX> į can do my own blacklist for adservers
18:46:31 <Alberth> but the Chinese people suffer the filter, not the american people, so I doubt politicians care much
18:47:05 <Alberth> z-MaTRiX: filter your browser program away :)
18:47:55 <z-MaTRiX> there are other means getting one
18:48:12 <z-MaTRiX> and there are proxies
18:48:43 <z-MaTRiX> are you in chinese?
18:49:01 <Yexo> <Alberth> (bus to train station, bus to lorry station, truck to bus station? <- I've been confused by that case myself, I think we should show an error message
18:49:08 <Yexo> especially truck/bus can be confusing
18:50:20 * Alberth considers that a good idea
18:51:28 <Eddi|zuHause> we already have an error message for articulated bus to bus terminal, right?
18:55:39 <__ln__> i wish to register a complaint
18:56:36 <Eddi|zuHause> you know where those go
18:56:54 <__ln__> somebody has changed the default signal to something that does not stop the trains
18:58:12 <Eddi|zuHause> or maybe you changed signals while trains were nearby?
18:58:42 <planetmaker> signals always were meant just as art-deco
19:03:15 <Terkhen> see you tomorrow
19:13:23 <planetmaker> enjoy, Terkhen
19:33:09 <Elukka> paypal has a history of doing everything the american government thinks to ask of them
19:33:42 <Elukka> meanwhile the government does everything the corporations think to ask of them, they have a very understanding relationship :P

20:50:38 *** b_jonas has joined #openttd
20:52:59 <b_jonas> I've set up a game deliberately easy, that is, no competitors and lots of money and lots of industries and towns
20:53:21 <b_jonas> strangely, as I know how the game works, I can enjoy that mode too
20:53:25 <b_jonas> I didn't think I would
20:53:28 <b_jonas> but I do enjoy it
20:54:01 <b_jonas> I'll have to upgrade my openttd now
20:54:16 <Elukka> my challenge in the game is "how do i get all these people/this cargo this city/industry produces to where they want to go"
20:54:37 <b_jonas> I currently have 1.1.1. Should I upgrade to 1.1.2, or directly to 1.1.3-RC1 instead?
20:54:40 <Elukka> with cargo destinations passengers are particularly interesting
20:54:55 *** Zuu has joined #openttd
20:55:04 <b_jonas> however, the game says that houses accept "unknown cargo"
20:55:14 <b_jonas> besides passengers and mail and goods
20:56:24 <b_jonas> hmm, where do I download the RC?
20:59:31 <b_jonas> lists only the stable
21:00:40 <b_jonas> ah, found it:
21:02:26 <Yexo> <b_jonas> however, the game says that houses accept "unknown cargo" <- most likely cause: you removed newgrfs from a running game
21:02:43 <Yexo> if you didn't change the newgrf config, please upload your savegame somewhere so we can figure out where the bug is
21:03:09 <planetmaker> some japanese(?) newgrf may cause that (or similar), iirc. Even without newgrf addremove
21:03:11 <b_jonas> Yexo: I don't think I have removed after starting the game
21:03:19 <b_jonas> planetmaker: yes, I'm using some japanese
21:03:27 <planetmaker> newgrf bug
21:03:35 <b_jonas> I can upload the savegame,
21:03:36 <Yexo> easily resolved then :)
21:03:52 <Yexo> nah, if planetmaker already knows it's a bug in some japanese grf it's no use
21:03:54 <b_jonas> but first I'll upgrade openttd and opengfx
21:03:59 <b_jonas> okay, I won't then
21:04:06 <b_jonas> thanks
21:05:36 <b_jonas> I'm also learning to use PBS exclusively in this game
21:06:01 <Elukka> PBS is amazing
21:06:05 <b_jonas> yes
21:06:57 <b_jonas> a large part of the wiki still explains how to make efficient junctions with pre-signals, much of which is obsolate because you can do more efficient with much simpler junctions using pbs
21:07:11 <planetmaker> there's nothing wrong with pre-signals
21:07:22 <planetmaker> but yes :-)
21:07:30 <planetmaker> path signals are easier to handle
21:07:34 <b_jonas> yes
21:07:47 <Elukka> PBS is more intuitive, easier and more forgiving
21:07:49 <b_jonas> and it seems there are very few things you can do with block and presignals but can't do with path signals
21:08:04 <Elukka> though you want to be really careful with that safe waiting position thing
21:08:06 <planetmaker> load balancing ;-)
21:08:30 <Elukka> otherwise it'll come back and bite you in the ass as your network grows
21:08:36 <b_jonas> yep, I got some trains stuck by design errors
21:08:54 <b_jonas> and from misclicking and not noticing signals facing the wrong way
21:10:35 <b_jonas> I've got lucky with a steel mill with three iron ore mines very close, producing 720, 720, 360 respectively
21:10:41 <b_jonas> and there's also a factory close
21:10:58 <b_jonas> (plus a farm and a smaller iron ore mine)
21:11:22 <b_jonas> so now I had to design an efficient track to transport all the goods to a faraway city
21:11:34 <b_jonas> but it works now
21:12:53 <CIA-2> OpenTTD: rubidium * r22914 /trunk/src/saveload/order_sl.cpp: -Fix [FS#4716]: old TTO/TTD savegames could get non-stop via orders upon savegame loading, even when those orders did not exist back then. This 'conversion' feature is something for TTDPatch and old OpenTTD savegames
21:12:58 <b_jonas> in this game I'm using newgrfs that don't change the game mechanics much but add new graphics
21:13:12 <b_jonas> new stations and houses, but same vehicles and industries
21:16:18 <b_jonas> ok, game and opengfx upgraded
21:16:51 <b_jonas> yep, "invalid cargo" still there
21:17:14 <planetmaker> maybe bug them to release an update with just the cargo issue fixed
21:17:28 <planetmaker> though you can safely ignore that cargo. No harm in that particular case
21:17:30 <planetmaker> just ugly
21:17:56 <b_jonas> and yes, it's probably the Japanese set, because according to the land query tool, only Japanese houses seem to accept it, not the Swedish houses
21:19:54 *** sla_ro|master has quit IRC
21:19:55 <b_jonas> what bothers me is still how transparency is handled
21:20:09 <b_jonas> no setting I can find hides the smoke of power stations
21:20:21 <b_jonas> and that smoke is large and distracting if you want to see what's behind
21:21:14 <b_jonas> also, I think hiding the fences around railway tracks should be a separate button on the transparency toolbar, not just a part of "full detail"
21:21:30 <b_jonas> because those fances are not only a performance thing, sometimes they're distracting
21:21:38 *** Bjarni has joined #openttd
21:21:38 *** ChanServ sets mode: +o Bjarni
21:22:18 <b_jonas> but maybe instead it's the whole full detail that should be a button on the toolbar
21:22:38 <b_jonas> remind me what effect it has besides hiding fences around rail and trees from town roads?
21:23:08 <Eddi|zuHause> i think there was also something with road reconstruction graphics
21:25:09 <b_jonas> I might have been a bit too eager while terraforming this mountain here
21:25:26 <b_jonas> maybe I should have planned the tracks first and then flatten only where needed
21:25:56 *** JVassie has joined #openttd
21:26:44 <b_jonas> I don't think I ever ran so many trains on the same route. 12 trains.
21:27:38 <planetmaker> only? :-)
21:27:42 <__ln__> Bjarni!
21:27:54 <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: not entirely sure r22914 is the right thing to do...
21:27:54 <Bjarni> I have used way more than 12 on a line
21:27:59 <CIA-2> OpenTTD: yexo * r22915 /trunk/src/ (aircraft.h aircraft_cmd.cpp saveload/vehicle_sl.cpp): -Fix (r22743): TTO savegames with any aircraft not in an hangar caused crashes during load
21:28:21 <Bjarni> doesn't sound impressive unless you tell they have 40 cars each or something
21:29:12 <b_jonas> no, only 12 cars
21:29:19 <b_jonas> 12 cars each
21:29:49 <Bjarni> 144 cars in total.... not that extreme
21:30:06 <Bjarni> though 12 cars is a good size with the right engine
21:30:09 <b_jonas> probably. but I still think it's the highest I've got
21:30:24 <b_jonas> engine is asiastar now
21:30:56 <Bjarni> I once tried 100 cars or something like that.... looks impressive, but it performs horribly, even with enough engines
21:31:08 <b_jonas> let me check how many I have in the ttdpach game for the sawmill, but I think it was less
21:31:42 <Bjarni> it's not important
21:32:05 <Bjarni> having a whole lot of trains on a line isn't a goal on it's own
21:32:57 <b_jonas> yes, the goal is to transport as much of the 720+720+360 iron and the steel and goods as possible
21:33:15 <b_jonas> and the goods to far away
21:33:35 *** JVassie has quit IRC
21:34:01 <Elukka> note that the more you transport and the faster your vehicles go, the more likely the production increases
21:34:18 <Elukka> you always want to have at least one vehicle loading at an industry station
21:34:39 * Bjarni imagines somebody thinking the number of trains as an important factor and makes a fleet of trains with just one car each
21:34:45 <b_jonas> I mean, I could add more trains but it would get worse
21:35:24 <b_jonas> more smaller trains can be important if you transport long distance and want higher rating
21:37:17 <Elukka> i don't think there's technically any difference whether it's just 2 trains
21:37:22 <b_jonas> but I think once I upgrade this to maglev, these 12 trains should give a consistent 100% rating
21:37:31 <Elukka> as long as the second hasn't finished loading before the first returns
21:37:52 <b_jonas> Elukka: hmm
21:37:56 <Elukka> but it's not terribly practical to make overlong trains!
21:38:51 <Eddi|zuHause> i think 15 tiles was my longest
21:39:06 <Eddi|zuHause> with slightly shortened wagons
21:39:16 <b_jonas> I might be able to add a few more trains here, but first I'd like to see that they consistently don't get stuck at either station
21:39:19 *** frosch123 has quit IRC
21:39:37 <Elukka> if your station is properly designed they won't ;)
21:39:49 <b_jonas> but it's probably better to just wait for maglev (or upgrade to monorail now)
21:40:02 <b_jonas> I _think_ it's properly designed, but I'm not sure
21:40:15 <Elukka> heh
21:41:34 <b_jonas> the factory station is easy because it's in open space, but the city station is a bit squeezed both because it has to be close to the city to accept goods and because there's another small town close
21:42:05 <b_jonas> that small town is still angry at me for terraforming so I can't bulldoze it down yet
21:42:08 *** Vadtec has quit IRC
21:42:30 <b_jonas> but I was careful and knew this so I have a small passenger station in it so the rating eventually rises
21:43:16 <b_jonas> I think I'm at permanent war with only two towns
21:43:19 <b_jonas> in this game
21:43:30 *** Adambean has quit IRC
21:45:22 <b_jonas> hmm wait
21:46:44 <b_jonas> which stations count for the slow increase/decrease of authority ratings? only ones in the inner city area, any within the town's authority, or any that'd be named from that town?
21:52:31 <Eddi|zuHause> all with the city's name in it
21:54:51 <Elukka> you can also bribe
21:54:56 <Elukka> or plant trees, which is a tad silly :D
21:55:00 <b_jonas> Eddi|zuHause: tyanks
21:55:15 <b_jonas> yes, I often try planting trees
21:55:42 <b_jonas> it can help when I'm just a bit below, but when rating is very low and town is already surrounded by trees then it's hard to get rating back that way
21:56:25 * Eddi|zuHause tries to not tell about the tree cheat right now
21:56:27 <b_jonas> I haven't tried bribing yet, but apparently when your rating is very bad then an unsuccessful bribe is better than a successful one
21:56:39 <b_jonas> Eddi|zuHause: I know, destroy all the trees, rebuild trees
21:56:44 <b_jonas> I've tried
21:56:45 <b_jonas> it's not easy
21:57:40 <b_jonas> in theory if you wait for 14 years you get your rating back just for doing nothing
21:57:45 <b_jonas> that also doesn't seem to work well for me

23:14:10 <csaba> the best train is around 200K
23:14:35 <csaba> oil tankers as in ships
23:14:48 <csaba> the ships cost several millions to build, no idea why...
23:15:38 <V453000> because ships are retarded
23:15:40 <V453000> most likely
23:17:30 <pjpe> grfs aren't always well balanced
23:17:43 <pjpe> the dutch tram set has trams that only fit like 50 passengers max
23:17:52 <pjpe> like every other tram set has the real life number of 100+
23:18:44 <Bjarni> It's really easy to make completely unbalanced and unrealistic grf files
23:18:49 <Elukka> i like long vehicles for road vehicle balancing
23:18:59 <Elukka> makes them actually useful, especially when coupled with a high running costs train set
23:19:01 <Bjarni> it's tough to make well balanced ones though
23:19:14 <Elukka> although internally lv has bizarre balance decisions
23:19:43 <Elukka> like, some buses have $1000/month maintenance and some marginally faster bus is $7000/month and is obviously never worth it

23:22:24 <Bjarni> ok, it could be a bit extreme
23:22:30 *** TWerkhoven has quit IRC
23:24:03 <b_jonas> real life _is_ like that
23:24:31 <Bjarni> I have one real life example. In 1952 a Danish locomotive factory sold a 750 hp diesel locomotive design. One railroad asked for a version without turbocharger and they got that.
23:24:46 <Bjarni> the problem is.... without turbocharger it only had 500 hp
23:24:56 <Bjarni> and it used more diesel for each hp
23:24:56 <b_jonas> the $7000/month one is bought because the owner of the factory is the cousin of the town mayor, or a blonde that went to bed with him
23:25:04 <Elukka> haha
23:25:14 <Elukka> i think lv is meant to have intracity and intercity buses
23:25:24 <Elukka> the former have more capacity but are slow, the latter have less capacity but are faster
23:25:33 <Elukka> it's just the intercity buses are so expensive to run they're useless
23:26:05 <pjpe> why on earth did they ask for that
23:26:24 <Bjarni> they didn't want to maintain a turbocharger
23:26:27 <pjpe> is long vehicles the one that has like 1000 vehicles
23:26:31 <pjpe> and some of them from real life
23:26:37 <pjpe> like the model t and mercedes tour busses
23:26:38 <pjpe> and so on?
23:26:56 <Elukka> ummm mmaybe
23:27:06 <pjpe> that one always kinds of rubs me the wrong way
23:27:09 <pjpe> just too many vehicles
23:27:19 <Elukka> it doesn't have terribly many though so i dunno
23:27:57 <Elukka>
23:27:59 <Elukka> does it look like that?
23:28:05 <pjpe> yes
23:28:11 <pjpe> with the weird futuristic one in the top left
23:28:16 <Elukka> i've used it for forever
23:28:28 <pjpe> these sets should really come with condensed versions
23:28:30 <pjpe> 2cc could use one
23:29:00 <Elukka> i think the modern vehicles are maybe a bit too big but i like the graphics and it's the only road vehicle set i know of where the trucks have any use
23:30:38 <Elukka> definitely my favorite road vehicle grf
23:33:47 *** KritiK has quit IRC
23:35:28 <Bjarni> because of the vehicle stats or because of the graphics?
23:35:43 <Bjarni> for all we know you could be staring at the uncut sprites all the time :p
23:38:12 <Elukka> i use the cut version not because i dislike looking at boobs but i feel it's a bit out of place :P
23:39:16 <planetmaker> pjpe: make a list of which vehicles make up the condensed version and suggest it in the resp. newgrf threads
23:40:01 <planetmaker> alternatively or additionally: you should learn to code newgrfs ;-)
23:41:34 <Elukka> ridiculously long vehicle lists like 2cc's don't make me go "hm this could use with some trimming", it makes me go "oooooh so many little pixel trains \o/"
23:41:44 <pjpe> maybe i will
23:41:49 <pjpe> i have no idea how 2cc is set up though
23:41:53 <pjpe> i looked through the source
23:41:59 <pjpe> and golly thats a lot more nml than i care to learn
23:42:26 <pjpe> but i might make a list
23:42:41 <pjpe> like i like having all the vehicles it has now but sometimes it just feels like too much
23:43:05 <Elukka> i can see why one would want a set where everything has a thought out role with nothing extraneous
23:43:43 *** bryjen has joined #openttd
23:44:17 <planetmaker> 2ccTS is written in nfo
23:47:38 <Pinkbeast> I think a "real world" vehicles set is always going to have lots of spurious vehicles because of the way speed is so important in OTTD
23:48:58 <Pinkbeast> Unless you're deliberately reducing income to make a more interesting layout (and there's nothing wrong with that) you're 99% of the time going to want the most powerful and/or quick vehicles, and you'll never use (eg) a shunting locomotive
23:49:35 <planetmaker> depends :-) But you're most often right
23:50:21 <Pinkbeast> Well, you're _so often_ having capacity problems that it becomes very difficult to do anything else.
23:51:11 *** pjpe has quit IRC
23:51:12 <valhallasw> it's mostly that shunting is irrelevant
23:51:36 <valhallasw> shunting corresponds to a hub-spoke infrastructure
23:51:55 <valhallasw> where wagons are uncoupled and recombined
23:51:59 <Pinkbeast> valhalla> I don't think it is. I mean, that's why one rarely uses shunting engines, but any low-power engine is going to see limited use however cheap it is.
23:52:16 <Pinkbeast> It's Pikka's "Deltics everywhere" problem
23:52:41 <valhallasw> well, locomotives are too cheap
23:53:02 <valhallasw> in real life, you would take some time to replace a locomotive, because of the cost
23:53:32 <valhallasw> but in general, you don't buy slow, old, locomotives
23:53:36 <Pinkbeast> I think that's more down to the essentially unlimited supply of money in the middle and late game.
23:54:12 <Pinkbeast> ... and the lack of an "autoreplace when older than n years" option, and the way that having trains of different speeds works even worse than IRL.
23:55:06 <Pinkbeast> But even if I only replaced locomotives when old, I would almost certainly (if, again, playing without an eye on reality) always pick a new and powerful locomotive at replacement time
23:55:49 <Pinkbeast> I don't see it as a problem, really - a "real world" set can have less useful vehicles in, reality fans can use them, people "just playing" can not, everyone's happy.
23:56:05 <Pinkbeast> ... except Pikka going "why do all UKRS1 games use Deltics all the time"? :-/
23:56:31 *** Swissfan91 has joined #openttd
23:59:09 <Bjarni> there is a serious balance issue regarding replacing vehicles compared to real life
23:59:55 <Bjarni> I mean it's not difficult for me to find real life locomotives, which are like 50 years old still running freight trains
