00:16:52 <Eddi|zuHause> na, one pixel off the roof
00:17:04 *** Hyronymus has quit IRC
00:17:15 <Eddi|zuHause> the line along the front of the wagon
00:17:54 *** Bjarni has quit IRC
00:18:27 <Elukka> at which angle ddo i need to start taking a horizontal line off instead of a vertical one
00:18:30 <Elukka> *do
00:19:15 <Eddi|zuHause> the \ view should remove both
00:19:22 <Eddi|zuHause> and the others probably one
00:20:47 <Elukka> hmm so then the diagonal should be one more pixel shorter...
00:21:10 <Elukka> but then it won't be exactly half the length of the side view anymore
00:21:52 <Eddi|zuHause> we may need to do furter adjustments once we get this into the game
00:22:58 <Elukka> it'd be nice to see how it'd look in game
00:23:06 *** KritiK has quit IRC

00:32:04 <Eddi|zuHause> there are a few things left to code, before we can look at it ingame, and i'm not sure whether i can get to that the next week(s)
00:35:14 <Elukka> i see
00:35:31 <Elukka> well, i'll keep drawing some sprites and hope they won't be too broken

05:09:01 <EyeMWing> Sononfa...
05:09:42 <pjpe> oh hey you're that guy
05:09:43 <pjpe> doing that thing
05:09:54 <EyeMWing> Was trying to test a patch. Was about to complain that it doesn't work when I realized I'm trying it in my vanilla version.
05:10:18 <pjpe> are you going to put the station sprites in your us set revamped?
05:11:28 *** TheMask96 has quit IRC
05:11:39 <EyeMWing> Not in the main set, but once I've ticked off a few goals, I don't see why not.
05:11:54 <pjpe> aw sweet
05:12:04 <pjpe> the guy had some really nice stations drawn up
05:12:08 <pjpe> but they weren't in game
05:12:14 <pjpe> and then he disappeared
05:13:36 <EyeMWing> These?
05:14:02 <pjpe> those are the ones
05:14:13 <pjpe> only toronto union seems to be in the current set
05:15:27 <EyeMWing> I think I've seen the bare platforms somewhere, too.
05:16:54 <Elukka> the steel mill platforms and grain depot are in game
05:17:53 <EyeMWing> Recolored, I think.
05:18:01 <EyeMWing> Well, at least the steel mill
05:18:38 <EyeMWing> Oh wow.
05:18:45 <EyeMWing> This works even less well in the patched copy than in trunk.
05:19:30 <EyeMWing> Wait
05:19:31 <EyeMWing> no it doesn't
05:20:50 *** TheMask96 has joined #openttd
05:24:13 <pjpe> now who wouldn't like to have the justice league hq station in their games
05:24:14 <pjpe> who
05:24:16 <pjpe> no one that's who
05:25:40 <EyeMWing> Some decent stations might convince me to actually service passengers.
05:29:00 <EyeMWing> There's a whole bunch of tiny little 1 or 2-piece station sets that in the ottdc grf pack. Licenses permitting, rolling some of those up, plus the big city stations that were never implemented would be a pretty good start.
05:31:36 <pjpe> there are only really 3 decent station tiles for large cities
05:31:49 <pjpe> the 2 station halls in i think the industrial station renewal
05:31:53 <pjpe> and union station in the us set
05:31:59 <pjpe> everything else is too small scale
05:46:04 <Elukka>
05:46:05 <Elukka> hmm.
05:47:01 <EyeMWing> Okay, I just have to ask. What on earth are the extra angles for?
05:47:41 <Elukka> some sort of magic that makes them turn smoother in corners
05:48:02 <Elukka> vital for the longer wagons (like twice as long as this one, presumably also magic) so they don't look bad
05:48:18 <Elukka> i don't code, i just draw on top of templates :P
05:49:33 <EyeMWing> I think I know what the first bit of magic is, but... Wagons longer than 8/8?
05:49:50 <Elukka> yep
05:49:56 <Elukka> it was described as "hacky"
05:49:57 <pjpe> articulated wagons?
05:49:59 <Elukka> needs a patch
05:50:04 <Elukka> no i believe they're simply longer wagons
05:50:21 <pjpe> is that smooth turning magic in the codebase yet
05:50:28 <pjpe> i looked through it but couldn't really make heads of it
05:51:23 <EyeMWing> Got a link to the patch? The US set has some locomotives that are currently chopped up into like, 6 articulated pieces
05:52:28 <Elukka> pjpe, seems to be in trunk
05:52:41 <pjpe> i mean in the nml
05:52:58 <Elukka> oh, no idea
05:53:04 <Elukka> eyemwing i was actually trying to find it too :P
05:54:48 <Elukka> i swear someone linked it...
05:58:09 <Elukka> or not. dunno
05:58:14 <Elukka> Eddi|ZuHause would know more
06:00:26 <Elukka> yeah looking into it i haven't the faintest idea how CETS plans to manage the longer vehicles
06:00:50 <pjpe> is there even a thread
06:01:17 <Elukka> i don't even know
06:20:26 *** Kurimus has joined #openttd
06:21:58 <planetmaker> moin
06:22:33 <Elukka> hey, people were curious about how CETS manages longer rail vehicles
06:22:35 <Elukka> do you happen to know?
06:23:23 <planetmaker> yes. I suggest to look at the source for the exact 'how'
06:23:30 <planetmaker> it uses rail curvature info
06:23:34 <planetmaker> and articulation
06:24:00 <Elukka> oh, it does use articulation
06:24:08 <Elukka> does that make longer carriages bend in corners?
06:24:21 <planetmaker> no, they're one piece
06:24:28 <Elukka> okay that's the magic part
06:24:30 <planetmaker> visually
06:25:33 <planetmaker> basically a wagon consists of three parts. Only the middle part has (visible) graphics
06:26:06 <planetmaker> But it cannot be recommended to use that really
06:26:22 <planetmaker> The game engine is not ready for this and it'll glitch
06:26:57 <Elukka> how does that manifest in game?
06:27:31 <EyeMWing> I had a feeling that's what was going on.
06:28:07 <EyeMWing> I guess I'll just keep ye olde bendy locomotives for now.

07:26:20 <EyeMWing> planetmaker: Any recommendations for a reasonable Python dev environment?
07:26:39 <andythenorth> EyeMWing: text editor?
07:26:40 <andythenorth> :P
07:27:12 <pjpe> vim
07:27:31 <EyeMWing> Chasing references in text editors sucks. I'm a pampered Microsoftie by day.
07:27:53 <andythenorth> hmm
07:27:54 <pjpe> that visual studio python plugin?
07:28:31 <andythenorth> I have only used eclipse as a python IDE, and that sucks for various reasons
07:29:16 <pjpe> netbeans is a good die for java
07:29:17 <pjpe> eclipse always seemed shoddy
07:29:43 <EyeMWing> Eclipse is spectacular in finding every possible way to be wrong.
07:30:17 <EyeMWing> Good call on the Visual Studio plugin, I've actually used that before and forgot about it.
07:30:37 <pjpe> or you can be an idiot and use wing
07:30:40 <pjpe> or wings
07:30:46 <pjpe> or whatever that python ide is
07:30:47 <pjpe> god i hate that
07:31:01 <andythenorth> EyeMWing: RUST looks promising :)
07:31:44 <EyeMWing> Promising and ambitious.

08:07:46 * andythenorth is low-fi
08:08:01 <andythenorth> the place suddenly seems to be full of OS X users
08:09:09 <pjpe> it's a good os
08:09:11 <pjpe> and pretty too!

08:15:12 *** taede has joined #openttd
08:16:37 *** Zeknurn has quit IRC
08:19:01 <Rubidium> pjpe: unless you want to develop an application to run on more than 2 versions of that OS
08:19:45 *** taede has quit IRC
08:20:10 <pjpe> things usually work on the current and previous version
08:20:16 <pjpe> which i don't find that bad
08:22:35 <Rubidium> well, OpenTTD always fails many months (if not years) after Apple makes a release
08:22:50 <pjpe> can't speak for previous versions
08:23:08 <pjpe> but for the latest os update is was because openttd was using two functions for fullscreen that were deprecated for years
08:23:14 <pjpe> and only removed in lion
08:23:59 <EyeMWing> Removing deprecated features from an OS more often than once a hardware generation is reckless.
08:24:49 <Rubidium> pjpe: Microsoft removed directmusic in 2007 from their development kits, yet it still works
08:25:04 <pjpe> great for them
08:25:24 *** Hyronymus has joined #openttd
08:26:09 <Rubidium> nah, great for forward compatability
08:26:14 *** Cybertinus has joined #openttd
08:26:19 <Rubidium> but then... Apple made an ever bigger mess in the past
08:26:44 <Alberth> Apple clearly does not care for anybody but themselves
08:26:47 <Rubidium> saying a particular feature was supported (via one API call), but not actually supporting it (when actually using it)
08:27:18 <EyeMWing> Microsoft never removes anything ever because users will always say "This new operating system broke my program! Stupid buggy Microsoft." not "My program does something it was supposed to stop doing 15 years ago! Stupid buggy program."
08:28:08 <EyeMWing> Apple, of course, is immune to ever having anyone question their perceived quality and doesn't have to worry about that problem, and can break things more or less at will.
08:28:56 <andythenorth> and they do
08:29:06 <EyeMWing> Plus they don't have to worry about the ramifications of some ramshackle pile of junk "enterprise software" failing and costing one of their customers a trillion dollars.
08:29:08 <andythenorth> whether that will continue post-Steve is another question
08:29:16 <Rubidium> now I'm certainly not saying that Microsoft or Linux or BSD is a saint with respect to backward compatability, but it's perceivably doing a much better job at it
08:29:21 <andythenorth> it's not so much Apple as Steve :P
08:29:34 <andythenorth> Steve doesn't care about backwards compatibility. It's not on his agenda
08:30:08 <Alberth> Can we please stop discussing these stupid 'coins in the train list' ? I am getting sick and tired of it
08:30:24 <andythenorth> ok
08:30:31 <EyeMWing> I guarantee somewhere in the financial industry exists a program that uses DirectMusic to play an alarm when the stock market crashes or something.
08:30:31 * andythenorth has stopped
08:31:32 <Rubidium> Alberth: okay, lets discuss coins in the road vehicle list then ;)
08:31:45 <Alberth> ARGH!
08:32:20 <Rubidium> I think we should use a golden coin for lots of money, a silver one for small bits and a chocolate one for loss (looks like shit)
08:32:36 <planetmaker> 'coins in the train'? Oh, that thread? :-)
08:32:55 <andythenorth> why don't we discuss groups instead?
08:32:59 <andythenorth> that always goes well
08:33:16 *** taede has joined #openttd
08:33:21 <frosch123> still better than discussion one-tile locks :p
08:33:35 <Rubidium> no! half tile locks!
08:33:52 <frosch123> diagonal locks?
08:33:53 *** taede is now known as TWerkhoven
08:35:08 <Alberth> diagonal bridges!
08:36:15 <EyeMWing> Diagonal stations! (No, really. Bendy station platforms would be awesome)
08:38:03 <pjpe> diagonal bridges and diagonal roads is the weirdest idea
08:38:11 <pjpe> i can't picture it doing anything but taking up lots of space and looking weird
08:39:51 *** JVassie has joined #openttd
08:42:31 *** Zeknurn has joined #openttd
08:42:39 <EyeMWing> Roads could be okay. Decidedly "strange looking" in TTD, but given the right artistic treatment they'd look alright and be far more useful in getting vehicles around efficiently.
08:42:43 <frosch123> yeah, bendy stations! i want the platform at the top upside-down spot of a loop-the-loop
08:43:22 <pjpe> openrollertransportcoastertycoon
08:44:00 <frosch123> how many tons of coal can you transport on a roller-coaster-track?
08:44:31 <EyeMWing> ECS tourists only.
08:45:19 <Alberth> @calc 25*80 / 1000
08:45:19 <DorpsGek> Alberth: 2
08:47:37 *** Zeknurn has quit IRC
08:48:57 <Elukka> diagonal track slopes!
08:52:38 <andythenorth> two tile locks
08:52:45 <andythenorth> 3 tile locks are stupid stupid
08:52:55 <andythenorth> and it's stupid to be able to overbuild river, but not rapids
08:52:57 <andythenorth> just annoying
08:54:28 <Eddi|zuHause> you're supposed to build the lock next to the rapids ;)
08:54:53 <EyeMWing> If you built the lock over the rapids, you'd essentially be damming the river
08:55:40 <andythenorth> sounds a bit detailed to me
08:55:49 <EyeMWing> When did rivers go into the map generator anyway? I just saw it for the first time today, but it had been awhile since I grabbed a nightly
08:56:08 <andythenorth> we have huge detailed locks that are supposed to go alongside rapids
08:56:12 <andythenorth> but 1 tile depots
08:56:16 <andythenorth> seems like wrong thinking
08:56:21 <Hyronymus> somewehre last week EyeMWing
08:56:38 <Elukka> has anyone thought up a satisfactory method of removing/readding/something rivers?
08:56:41 * Hyronymus agrees with andythenorth
08:56:45 <Elukka> a bit silly that you can just remove a river and it's gone forever
08:56:52 <EyeMWing> 1 tile depots need to die.
08:57:20 <Hyronymus> can't river tiles be like radio transmitters: unremoveable from the map
08:57:29 <Elukka> mainly it bothers me because i'll accidentally remove a piece of river and it's gone
08:57:47 <Elukka> wider, longer major rivers would be a really cool thing too
08:57:57 <b_jonas> I'd like diagonal rail bridges
08:58:03 <b_jonas> and diagonal rail tunnels
08:58:30 <b_jonas> but it's dangerous to go down that route
08:59:25 <planetmaker> why?
08:59:56 <b_jonas> because after that I'll want curved bridges and bridges with crossings and multiple lanes and tunnels with the same and eventually we're at the point where Locomotion is where you can build more freely in the air or underground then on the ground
09:00:19 <andythenorth> 1 tile depots are fine
09:00:45 <Alberth> b_jonas: and that is bad how, exactly?
09:01:16 <b_jonas> it kind of ruins the game if you can build in 3d over and under cities and other rails
09:01:26 <Alberth> andythenorth: they are entrances to underground tunnels :p
09:01:28 <b_jonas> you never have to plan anything because you always have place for your new track
09:01:44 <b_jonas> you just put it deeper or higher everything else
09:01:50 <b_jonas> too easy
09:01:58 <b_jonas> really, just play with that game
09:02:08 <b_jonas> it gets boring much more quickly than ttd
09:02:20 <b_jonas> because of the too much freedom
09:02:41 <Alberth> we'll add an advanced settings flag :)
09:04:20 <EyeMWing> Advanced Settings: The window where you choose whether you want to play Transport Tycoon Deluxe or... Whatever.
09:05:15 <EyeMWing> 1 tile depots really hub the realism center in my brain the wrong way. MLSS was the greatest thing to happen to me in ages. My railyards tend to be bigger than most cities for some reason...
09:06:44 <b_jonas> by the way, is there a good design for transporting lots of steel on a very short route (about 25 squares currently, depending on the placement of stations)? I'm currently using six trains each on individual tracks, but it's hard to place the depots for them
09:07:00 <Eddi|zuHause> if you want 1-tile-locks, you might just as well make the rapids traversable in the first place...
09:07:22 <planetmaker> b_jonas: that's an RV task
09:07:27 <planetmaker> not for trains
09:07:31 <b_jonas> why?
09:07:35 <EyeMWing> HEQS.
09:07:42 *** Wolf01 has joined #openttd
09:08:17 <b_jonas> um, I don't think I want to load a vehicles newgrf to this game. that would be kind of cheating.
09:08:22 <b_jonas> maybe for the next game.
09:08:25 <andythenorth> 2 tile locks
09:08:29 <andythenorth> 1 tile would be stupid
09:09:16 <Alberth> just draw a tilted ship :)
09:09:28 <planetmaker> :-D
09:09:50 <EyeMWing> Next suggestion would be to build a loop.
09:09:52 <planetmaker> hm, have ships also break-downs?
09:10:06 <Alberth> yes, they have
09:10:20 <planetmaker> :-) Could have nice graphics with water gushing in ;-)
09:10:34 <b_jonas> EyeMWing: my problem with the loop is, that would make the length of the rail much longer, so the trains would have to travel much
09:10:48 <andythenorth> b_jonas the flow would be better
09:10:51 <Alberth> planetmaker: would be progress compared with the current black smoke :)
09:11:04 <b_jonas> andythenorth: it wouldn't, because currently the six trains are each on separate tracks
09:11:08 <andythenorth> ok
09:11:10 <andythenorth> so flow is not an issue
09:11:12 <EyeMWing> Yeah, but you could pack the same number of trains onto half (or less) the tracks.
09:11:13 <Yexo> good morning :)
09:11:15 <b_jonas> so it could be better only if I had more than six trains
09:11:17 <planetmaker> I'm not sure that would be changed, Alberth. but one could still vary the vehicle
09:11:18 <Alberth> moin Yexo
09:11:19 <planetmaker> moin Yexo
09:11:37 <andythenorth> b_jonas: can you build a second level of tracks using bridges on the same ground footprint
09:11:56 <Yexo> b_jonas: why each train on an individual track?
09:11:59 <Alberth> b_jonas: such waste of tracks and space
09:12:08 <Yexo> given 4 tracks you should easily be able to accomodate 10 trains or something like that
09:12:22 <andythenorth> b_jonas: build a canal
09:12:25 <Wolf01> hello
09:12:30 <planetmaker> hi Wolf01
09:12:31 <Alberth> hi Wolf01
09:12:34 <andythenorth> ships have ~infinite capacity per water tile
09:12:34 <Yexo> hello Wolf01
09:12:44 <b_jonas> it's short, like 25 squares. making them loop would make the distance like one and a half times as long because the trains would also need to turn
09:12:46 <Elukka> Eddi|ZuHause: you woke up!
09:12:54 <b_jonas> andythenorth: heh
09:12:56 <Elukka> i know white proof would likely be more accurate, but... i think the brown looks way better
09:12:58 <Eddi|zuHause> Elukka: i'm also gone now
09:13:24 <Eddi|zuHause> Elukka: looks ok, but the second view from the left loosk a little too short
09:13:33 <Elukka> *roof
09:14:10 <Elukka> yeah i might have done something wonky i was half asleep
09:14:25 <Elukka> figured i'd look at it again tomorrow before posting it on the devzone
09:14:39 <Yexo> b_jonas: who said anything about looping?
09:15:06 <b_jonas> Yexo: EyeMWing did
09:15:15 <b_jonas> should I upload a screenshot?
09:16:20 <Yexo> sure, if you want to
09:16:52 <Elukka> actually yup one of the views is missing a few pixels
09:19:54 <b_jonas> I guess I'll also have to check out the transport from the four mines and make them all consistently transport 80%+ of the ore

09:30:05 <b_jonas> especially if I upgrade to monorail
09:30:17 <b_jonas> how many carriages could they pull?
09:30:44 <b_jonas> I only have the X1 currently

09:33:07 <b_jonas> I should also improve the transport from the mines a bit
09:34:38 <EyeMWing> Well, it just took me 20 minutes to find a horsepower rating on a DMU when it's right on the wikipedia page. That sort of thing usually means it's time for bed.
09:35:29 <Rubidium> bed? You mean brunch... but ofcourse that should be enjoyed in bed, shouldn't it? :)
09:35:48 <planetmaker> :-)
09:36:55 <Yexo> b_jonas: I say with my previous comment: you can have at least double the amount of trains on those tracks
09:37:01 *** andythenorth has left #openttd
09:37:49 <b_jonas> Yexo: with what layout?
09:38:03 <b_jonas> how could they not get stuck if they're confined in such a small place?
09:38:11 <b_jonas> I mean, I could probably add two more tracks
09:38:23 <b_jonas> or more
09:38:28 <EyeMWing> Brunch at 5:30AM sounds interesting. I should try it some time.
09:38:30 <b_jonas> there's enough space on the NW

09:43:55 *** HerzogDeXtEr has joined #openttd
09:49:33 *** HerzogDeXtEr1 has quit IRC
09:53:40 <b_jonas> Yexo: I don't think that could run twice as many trains without getting stuck
09:53:50 <b_jonas> but it could indeed be better than what I have now
09:53:54 <Yexo> I'm 100% sure you can
09:53:59 <Yexo> 4 trains for every 2 tracks is easy
09:54:09 <Yexo> I'd say you might be able to get 5 or 6 trains on those
09:54:25 <Yexo> of course it wouldn't run as fluently anymore, but it will never get stuck due to the proper signaling
09:55:29 <b_jonas> also, wouldn't that need signals at the exit of the station tracks, before the crossing?
09:55:43 <Alberth> b_jonas: 4 trains at 2 tracks: 1 loading, 1 unloading, one from A -> B, one from B -> A
09:56:07 <Yexo> Alberth: in the example above there are 2 platforms on each side
09:56:18 <Yexo> so there can be 2 loading, 2 unloading, 1 A->B, 1 B->A
09:56:30 <Yexo> b_jonas: no, you don't need those
09:56:35 <Yexo> try it out, the layout I posted works
09:57:03 <Alberth> Yexo: way too many platforms if you ask me :)
09:57:08 <planetmaker> it wouldn't work on a roro station, though, Yexo
09:57:34 <Yexo> planetmaker: right, but this isn't one ;)
09:57:41 <Yexo> Alberth: agreed, but I didn't want to change his station layout too :)
09:57:51 <Yexo> and it allows for more trains this way
09:58:24 <b_jonas> how does that work? if there are no exit lights, how can trains park on both platforms?
09:58:29 <b_jonas> how do they know not to exit at the same time?
09:58:47 <Alberth> b_jonas: path signals reserve a whole track
09:58:53 <Yexo> they're in a pbs-signal block, so they'll only leave when they've reserved a route to a signal
09:58:56 <planetmaker> they'll figure it out. That's what path signals are for
09:59:13 <planetmaker> hm... though... turning. Sure, Yexo?
09:59:21 <b_jonas> but then wouldn't have to reserve the way out when they enter?
09:59:22 <Yexo> quite sure
09:59:34 <b_jonas> I'll test this
09:59:37 <Yexo> no, they "end of line" is also a valid end-point for a reservation
09:59:58 <Yexo> planetmaker: yes, I've used this in some games
10:00:11 <Alberth> Yexo: I find those double platforms more a pain in the ass, as the incoming and outgoing trains tend to get in each others way
10:00:15 *** Sionide has quit IRC
10:00:43 <Yexo> that's true and the reason I prefer roro stations for stations that are busier, but this works fine for not-too-busy stations
10:00:45 <Alberth> b_jonas: they reserve an outgoing path after finishing loading/unloading
10:00:49 <planetmaker> Alberth: hardly. with path signals you have not really a measurable impact
10:01:01 <b_jonas> so they can reserve a path even if there's no lights?
10:01:20 <Alberth> yep
10:01:41 <b_jonas> ah, I guess it's reversing that does that
10:01:48 <b_jonas> they have to reserve a path when they reverse
10:01:55 <b_jonas> even if they do that automatically
10:01:56 <b_jonas> fun
10:02:17 <b_jonas> in that case this layout may fit here
10:02:51 <Alberth> planetmaker: in my experience, the 2nd train always just claimed a path to the 2nd platform just before the 1st train finishes unloading
10:03:56 <Yexo> Alberth: that depends on unloading speed, train length, etc.
10:04:25 <planetmaker> and traffic density
10:04:48 <planetmaker> and the general station setup ;-)
10:05:03 <Alberth> it should, but perhaps there is self-regulating mechanism in there that causes it
10:05:30 * Alberth suspects the breakdowns
10:06:20 <b_jonas> it would be nice if somehow when both platforms are empty the incoming train took the farther platform
10:06:47 <Yexo> place a reversed path signal before the first platform but not for the second
10:07:06 <Yexo> to create an artificial malus for that platform and not for the other
10:07:10 <b_jonas> hmm
10:07:29 <b_jonas> I should try that next time I build large terminuses
10:07:37 <Yexo> other options are: slightly longer platform, make that tile a road crossing
10:07:54 <b_jonas> how does road crossing help?
10:08:11 <Yexo> the rail pathfinder prefers routes without road crossings
10:08:29 <b_jonas> wtf... my trains try to avoid competitor's road vehicles? that's stupid
10:08:35 * b_jonas looks for yapf settings to turn it off
10:09:28 <Yexo> in the console type: set yapf.rail_crossing_penalty 0
10:09:54 <b_jonas> I guess that might be it, yes
10:09:55 <planetmaker> I'd not advise it though
10:10:05 <b_jonas> why?
10:10:10 <planetmaker> I'd strongly advise to NOT modify the pathfinder settings
10:10:23 <b_jonas> yes, I would not like to modify it either if I can avoid it
10:10:33 <b_jonas> but I still don't understand the penalty for road crossing
10:10:40 <b_jonas> they don't have a speed limit for railway, does it?
10:10:49 <planetmaker> as you'll complain then in 10 days about strange vehicle behaviour - just because you basically use totally useless PF penalties instead of the well-tuned default ones
10:10:57 <Yexo> no, but the vehicles on there might as well be yours as your competitors
10:11:08 <Yexo> and you wouldn't want to crash your own road vehicles, would you?
10:11:30 <Yexo> also: crashing a road vehicle IIRC drops the station rating in nearby stations
10:11:46 <planetmaker> hm, what would make sense :-)
10:11:46 <b_jonas> this game doesn't even have competitors, nor road vehicles currently
10:11:59 <Yexo> so no reason to change that setting at all
10:12:18 <b_jonas> most of the road crossings are where I cross town roads I've built to nudge the town to build around my passenger station
10:12:27 <b_jonas> and want to make the roads look nice so they're continuous
10:12:40 <b_jonas> even though towns pick up roads that aren't continuous with their roads too
10:12:53 <b_jonas> but that looks unnatural so I avoid it
10:13:20 <b_jonas> there's no reason for trains to avoid those roads
10:13:49 <b_jonas> even in a game with competitors, this makes most of the crossings
10:13:58 <Yexo> trains won't avoid them, just if there is a parallel track next to it without road crossings of exactly the same length and with the same amount of trains, it'll chose the one without road crossings
10:13:58 <b_jonas> if I want to spare my vehicles, I build bridges or tunnels
10:14:48 <b_jonas> Yexo: I guess that's true, it's not a very strong penalty
10:14:52 <b_jonas> so I probably should just ignore it

16:08:27 <Greyfur> Hello
16:08:33 <planetmaker> hi
16:09:02 <Greyfur> I would like to ask, is there any way, how to make two companies service on one track ?
16:09:17 <planetmaker> on default openttd there is not
16:09:29 <Greyfur> I mean in TTD Patch it was possible to buy 75% of the other company and it worked
16:09:39 <planetmaker> I'm sure it doesn't
16:09:52 <planetmaker> you could maybe buy the company completely. But then it was one company
16:10:26 <planetmaker> you can do that here, too, if another company bancrupts
16:11:21 <Greyfur> Well I am sure, I have played a game, where I buyed only 75% of the other company and could use their rails
16:11:34 <planetmaker> well. In any case, this is not TTDPatch
16:11:55 <planetmaker> and in multiplyer it sucks majorly, if someone just bought my company
16:12:16 <planetmaker> and could do with my stuff what s/he wanted
16:12:16 <Greyfur> In that case it must have been Open TTD
16:12:29 <Yexo> no, it probably was ttdpatch
16:12:48 <Yexo> in openttd there has been an infrastructure sharing patch that allowed you to share rails with other companies
16:13:00 <planetmaker> but it's 24 months outdated now
16:17:41 <Greyfur> Actually I don't have the newest up to date openttd installed, so I guess I will try. Thanks!
16:18:01 <planetmaker> it won't allow you that either
16:18:33 <Yexo> Greyfur: there is no nor has there ever been an official version of OpenTTD that supported it

16:57:56 <planetmaker> it was just the first page in google to explain that
16:58:04 <orudge> hmm
16:58:06 <planetmaker> well, someone posted a patch for that
16:58:10 <orudge> well
16:58:12 <planetmaker> But my hardware doesn't support it
16:58:18 <orudge> what hardware do you have?

16:58:43 <orudge> I'm not sure if it'd support that
16:58:45 <orudge> it might do
16:58:47 <orudge> I've never used it if so
16:59:10 <planetmaker> I'd doubt that it supports that already; but maybe

17:04:52 <planetmaker> do you have compile stuff installed?
17:04:58 <supermop> hey guys
17:05:08 <orudge> I haven't built OpenTTD in a few months, seems I don't have liblzma installed
17:05:11 <planetmaker> otherwise with a bit of patience the binary will be compiled here, too. In the hope that it would work elsewhere
17:05:25 <supermop> is there a reason i cannot set service interval greater than 800 days
17:05:29 <supermop> ?
17:05:31 <planetmaker> but it's not that fast as I watch TV concurrently
17:05:59 <frosch123> planetmaker: if you provide a binary, you should fix the typo in the patch :)
17:06:01 <orudge> but MacPorts can sort that out
17:06:10 <planetmaker> orudge: for testing you could do without liblzma
17:06:20 <orudge> yeah
17:06:26 <planetmaker> yes, I should
17:06:29 <orudge> but I may as well install it now anyway :)
17:07:07 <planetmaker> hm, which, frosch123?
17:07:17 <planetmaker> (there's a new version as of today)
17:07:24 <frosch123> + HandleKeypress(WKC_EQUALS<<16);
17:07:34 <frosch123> see fs
17:08:29 <frosch123> though this does not necessarily prevent testing
17:08:31 <planetmaker> ah. Yes, I'd consider it a mouse event
17:08:37 *** APTX has joined #openttd
17:08:38 <supermop> also, intuitively, shouldn't ctrl+click on order with the 'go to' tool selected copy that order, rather than center screen on that station?
17:08:53 <frosch123> planetmaker: from the spec you posted, it only seems to a be an event for the ottd window
17:08:57 <frosch123> with no specific location
17:10:31 <frosch123> which would mean, zooming an image would always zoom around the center of the window, and not around the finger position
17:10:46 *** KenjiE20 has joined #openttd
17:10:49 <orudge> ooh, nice, lots of deprecated warnings when compiling now on the Mac
17:10:50 <orudge> but, it builds
17:11:15 <supermop> later all,
17:11:16 <planetmaker> orudge: yes, my patch shows them, too. As it makes sure to not build against old sdks (which hides them)
17:11:24 *** dfox has joined #openttd
17:11:25 <orudge> ah, ok
17:11:37 <planetmaker> I guess I should just commit that patch ;-)
17:11:47 *** supermop has left #openttd
17:11:53 <planetmaker> no need to make compatible binaries when not building universal
17:12:38 <planetmaker> *backward compatible
17:13:02 <orudge> well, pinch to zoom seems to work
17:13:15 <planetmaker> hm, how exactly?
17:13:25 *** andythenorth has left #openttd
17:13:53 <orudge> er, well, use two fingers far apart, and move them close together
17:13:56 <orudge> or vice versa to zoom out
17:14:12 <orudge> check the Trackpad section of the System Preferences, too
17:14:30 <orudge> do you see "pinch open & close" there?
17:14:37 <orudge> if you don't, I guess your hardware doesn't support it
17:14:42 <orudge> I can disable it there and it won't work in OpenTTD
17:15:11 <planetmaker> mine doesn't - or I could use it in other programmes, I guess :-)
17:15:35 <planetmaker> and no, the trackpad preferences doesn't have anything like that.
17:15:41 <planetmaker> that's why I know I don't have it
17:15:47 <orudge> fair enough
17:15:50 <orudge> well, it seems to work for me, anyway :)
17:15:58 <frosch123> orudge: do you have some image software which support that zooming?
17:16:24 <orudge> er, I'm not sure
17:16:26 <orudge> it works in Safari
17:16:28 <orudge> let me try in Preview
17:16:59 <orudge> yes, it works there too
17:19:03 <frosch123> orudge: does it matter where you do it?
17:19:12 <frosch123> i.e. does it zoom around the center of your fingers?
17:19:25 <frosch123> or does it always zoom relative to the center of the window?
17:19:27 <orudge> hm, I'm not sure
17:20:10 <orudge> it zooms relative to where the cursor is
17:20:21 <orudge> where your fingers specifically are doesn't matter
17:21:06 <planetmaker> ok, so it should zoom-in in secondary views when the cursor hovers them
17:21:16 * orudge tests
17:21:44 <orudge> no, that doesn't happen
17:21:51 <orudge> it only zooms the main OpenTTD viewpoint
17:22:14 <orudge> using two fingers up/down does zoom secondary viewpoints
17:22:21 <orudge> but pinching doesn't
17:23:03 <planetmaker> hm. normal zooming also works on main viewport, does it?
17:24:41 <planetmaker> hm... I wonder though whether we need two zoom-functions...
17:24:55 <orudge> planetmaker: yes
17:24:59 <orudge> brb
17:25:25 *** Hyronymus is now known as Hyr|afk
17:27:02 <frosch123> two-finger up/down is like mousewheel?
17:28:28 <planetmaker> yes
17:28:33 <planetmaker> and zooms in or out
17:28:39 <planetmaker> on all viewports
17:28:46 <planetmaker> and scrolls where it should
17:29:13 <planetmaker> I never use a mouse on this machine ;-)
17:30:57 <frosch123> well, you can disable the scrollwheel zooming in adv. settings
17:31:18 <frosch123> so, if it is the wrong gesture, it can be disabled :)
17:31:41 <frosch123> there is actually a setting to make the scrollwheel scroll the viewport
17:31:46 <frosch123> s/scroll/pan/ ?
17:31:55 <frosch123> including x/y direction for second wheel
17:32:04 <planetmaker> hm
17:32:08 <frosch123> i guess that works as well with those two finger gestures
17:32:23 <planetmaker> I need a new mac :S
17:35:08 <frosch123> be careful, that means more work
17:35:17 <frosch123> if you decide for a linux box, it would mean less work :p
17:35:33 <planetmaker> :-P
17:35:45 <planetmaker> well... I could install linux on it, too ;-)
17:35:59 <planetmaker> the hardware is good quality
17:36:29 <planetmaker> I actually still have a 50GB partition free... for either windoze or linux ;-)
17:37:09 <frosch123> dual-boot? who does that today :)
17:37:30 <planetmaker> indeed
17:37:41 <planetmaker> but also a VM could occupy that

18:58:38 <Eddi|zuHause> <planetmaker> but it's 24 months outdated now <-- chill's patchpack contains an updated infrastructure sharing patch
18:59:33 <planetmaker> can be, yes
19:03:12 <__ln__> any hope for infrastructure sharing in trunk?
19:03:13 <Eddi|zuHause> i used it a few months ago :)
19:03:20 <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: not really
19:03:28 <planetmaker> not currently. No one works on it
19:03:36 <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: too many conceptual problems, imho
19:03:50 <planetmaker> They can be solved
19:03:51 <Eddi|zuHause> just take the payment issue
19:04:05 <__ln__> but it is there already. the oil platforms.
19:04:22 <Eddi|zuHause> using transfers (or any kind of destinations patch) only the last mile gets paid
19:04:32 <Eddi|zuHause> all other companies involved get nothing
19:05:33 <planetmaker> __ln__: exactly
19:05:52 <__ln__> how about limited infrastructure sharing -- airports usable for everyone?
19:06:07 <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: yes, it's a trunk bug. but nobody bothered fixing it
19:06:09 <planetmaker> __ln__: that has the same issues
19:06:11 *** DayDreamer has quit IRC
19:06:39 <__ln__> well ok i see there's a problem with shared airports, too.
19:07:20 <planetmaker> I could block it in principle. Or the other one could. Thus it needs a method which removes all own stuff from a competitor's property
19:07:35 <planetmaker> so that I cannot be left with a debt spiral I cannot break
19:07:39 <Eddi|zuHause> what i missed in infrastructure sharing: merge my tram station with the other player's train station (via ctrl+click)
19:08:26 <Eddi|zuHause> or add my own platforms
19:08:52 <planetmaker> unrealistic to have stations owned by two ;-)
19:08:54 <Eddi|zuHause> (so not actual sharing of tracks, only transfer points for cargo)
19:09:06 <Eddi|zuHause> it's not really unrealistic
19:09:34 <Eddi|zuHause> take Leipzig main station, it was a station owned by two companies, the saxon state railway and the prussian state railway
19:09:43 *** TWerkhoven[l] has quit IRC
19:09:46 <Eddi|zuHause> hence all facilities existed twice

19:10:35 <Eddi|zuHause> in the eastern half the trains from erfurt, halle/magdeburg and berlin arrived, and in the western half the trains from dresden arrived
19:10:47 <Eddi|zuHause> err, other way around
19:11:19 <Eddi|zuHause> this is basically still true, as there are very few track connections from one half to the other
19:11:21 <planetmaker> :-) makes sense

19:18:05 <Eddi|zuHause> civilian travel on many sections was very low, so it was left to decay after WWII in those areas
19:18:16 <__ln__> is it still there?
19:18:48 <Eddi|zuHause> the section Sangerhausen-Hettstedt-Aschersleben is still in use
19:19:12 <TrueBrain> OpenTTD Web Services should all be back online. Please let me know if there are any issues

19:19:38 <Eddi|zuHause> but for example the section Treysa-Leinefelde is decayed. the DDR-BRD border was in that section

19:43:51 <Eddi|zuHause> do you mean "both" as in "at the same time", or as in "either one"?
19:46:10 <Ammler> Eddi|zuHause: dutchstations once in a tar and once unpacked
19:46:20 <Ammler> different versions (md5sums)
19:46:48 <Ammler> if I rename the unpacked grf, I am able to load the newer grf
19:47:09 <Ammler> I also have setting allow_older_newgrfs set
19:47:11 <planetmaker> Ammler: maybe you can prepare a testcase with those two newgrfs. And a savegame which tries to access the 'hidden' one
19:47:14 <planetmaker> if that's the issue
19:47:34 <Ammler> newgrf_show_old_versions = true
19:47:57 <Ammler> I guess, this has no effect on newgrfs without versions
19:48:28 *** olasd has joined #openttd
19:56:05 <Ammler> planetmaker: are you sure, it adds the tar to the path?
19:56:15 <planetmaker> I thought so
19:56:19 <Ammler> as there are paths in the tar
19:56:40 <planetmaker> but only since r22905
19:56:42 <Ammler> so it would be .../newgrf.tar/newgrf/newgrf.grf
19:56:51 <planetmaker> thus we should urgently update tomorrow ;-)
19:56:58 <Ammler> why not now?

22:16:01 <Elukka> hm.
22:16:14 <Elukka> any way to run opengfx+ landscape with cs railroad tracks?
22:16:30 <Elukka> no matter the load orders the landscape grf overrides the cs tracks with the default ones
22:16:49 <Elukka> though oddly enough it displays the cs track sprites in the build menus
22:22:02 <Eddi|zuHause> i'm afraid that requires a CS-tracks grf that is updated to use railtype-overlays
22:22:06 <Yexo> loading opengfx+landscape before cs railroad tracks works fine here
22:22:26 <Eddi|zuHause> Yexo: might depend on parameters
22:22:29 <Yexo> ogfx+landscape 0.2.2 and CS railroad tracks 1.4
22:22:58 <Yexo> for me: all default

23:42:17 <Yexo> did you try vehicle_gui.cpp?
23:42:43 <Yexo> the window with the actual orders is in order_gui.cpp
23:43:08 <EyeMWing> vehicle_gui Looks to be the vehicle list. Unless they're both in there.
23:44:17 <Yexo> struct VehicleViewWindow is the one you're looking for
23:44:26 <Yexo> there are several windows defined in vehicle_gui.cpp
