00:04:36 <Eddi|zuHause> but it's something typically 2cc-ish to include an engine that was built in 1 experimental unit and never reached market readiness
00:05:16 <peter1138> :p
00:05:53 <peter1138> heh, 6000kW, 4500kW of which was required to drive itself
00:06:32 <Eddi|zuHause> yep, i guess that's typical for gas turbines

07:48:16 <Elukka> why is there a terrible lack of steam era central european train sim content :(
07:49:12 <Ammler> which newgrfs did you try?
07:49:49 <Elukka> train sims as in railworks, ottd has plenty :D
07:49:54 <Elukka>
07:49:56 <Elukka> got the urge to play some
07:49:58 <planetmaker> :-)
07:50:31 <Ammler> ok :-)
07:52:24 *** hanf has joined #openttd
07:55:06 *** pugi has joined #openttd
07:56:07 <Diablo-D3> 8gb of memory is not enough to play openttd.
07:56:09 <Diablo-D3> this is awesome.
07:56:41 *** Eddi|zuHause4 has joined #openttd
07:57:18 <planetmaker> it is quite enough. Unless you hack it.
07:57:29 <Ammler> you need around 20MB
07:57:54 <planetmaker> @calc 8 * 2048**2
07:57:54 <DorpsGek> planetmaker: 33554432
07:58:01 <planetmaker> @calc 8 * 2048**2 / 1024**3
07:58:01 <DorpsGek> planetmaker: 0.03125
07:58:08 <Diablo-D3> well, Im running into swap
07:58:14 <Diablo-D3> and you cant blame firefox, its only using 4gb of memory
07:58:15 <planetmaker> depends strongly on map size and vehicle count, Ammler :-)
07:58:28 <Ammler> of course, "around" :-P
07:58:29 <norbert79> I wish there would be an M in the word swap...
07:59:22 <Ammler> is it possible to go above 100MB?
07:59:27 <Ammler> hmm, maybe with 32bpp
07:59:49 <norbert79> Ammler: Maybe with the generic binaries
08:00:14 <norbert79> since of the statically included stuff it grew from 7 MB to 20
08:00:18 <norbert79> :)
08:00:43 <Terkhen> maybe with the huge maps patch :P
08:02:09 *** Eddi|zuHause3 has quit IRC
08:02:19 <Diablo-D3> current usage according to top is 866m
08:05:14 <norbert79> ...and then it turns out, that Diablo is using some own patches or own compile, and he will just rob precious time of the admins on focsing on a problem, where there is no problem...
08:18:37 <Ammler> norbert79: generic bins are still 7
08:18:56 <Ammler> also why should that matter for memory usage?
08:19:06 <norbert79> Ammler: Nope, not since 1.1.3... Just updated my fullpack
08:19:22 <Ammler> oh, just checked the nightleis
08:19:24 <norbert79> each of the i686 and x86_64 are 20 mb, at least the executable
08:19:37 <norbert79> Those aren't generic... :) Not by the word :)
08:19:53 <Ammler> ah
08:20:12 <norbert79> Nah, just wanted to mention. It's a bit just weird to see such big executables, where the original game was around 20 MB packed :)
08:20:22 <Ammler> indeed 20MB, but anyway, I don't see why such binaries would need more memory
08:20:24 <norbert79> now the executables are :)
08:21:13 <norbert79> well, since generic, they don't... But still, 20 MB :) Come on... I miss the old times having executables being a few hundred kb big :)
08:21:54 * planetmaker still found the keyboard driver I had on DOS 3.3...6.0 marvelous: 291byte(!)
08:22:01 <planetmaker> compared to the ~20kByte of the generic one
08:22:20 <planetmaker> helped to run quite some hungry games ;-)
08:22:32 <norbert79> planetmaker: Aye, but those 291 directly spread the codes to the keys through DOS calls.
08:22:47 <norbert79> So that's why the small size :)
08:23:20 <norbert79> I wonder how well FreeDOS would run some games. Had the main memory usage issues a few years back
08:23:35 <norbert79> I couldn't get main memory above 590 KB
08:23:40 <norbert79> whatever I did
08:23:52 <norbert79> where under DOS 6.22 I always had aroun 615
08:24:24 <norbert79> a DOS client of OpenTTD would be nice :))
08:24:31 <norbert79> back to the roots
08:25:36 <norbert79> hah, and Freedos supports TCP-IP
08:25:39 <Terkhen> you should be able to compile one
08:25:44 <Terkhen> but no one has tried that recently
08:26:20 <norbert79> I wish I would have more time, I would sure give that a try, and test under my old 486
08:26:25 <planetmaker> last time someone I know that it was tested it worked, though
08:27:16 <Terkhen> yes, it was a year ago or so :)
08:27:47 <norbert79> hehhe... Neat
08:43:31 *** Progman has joined #openttd
08:49:36 <Elukka>
08:49:39 <Elukka> really neat tilt shift video
08:49:45 <Elukka> makes everything look miniature
08:51:09 *** Brianetta has joined #openttd
08:52:28 <peter1138> i want to see the opposite, to make models look BIG
08:53:32 <Elukka> that might be harder
08:54:15 <Elukka> märklin has really impressive promo pictures, though... too bad they don't seem to keep a repository of them anywhere
08:58:45 <norbert79> Elukka: really neat non-tils shifted place. Everything is minature. Really... :)
09:03:34 <Elukka> ha
09:06:11 <norbert79> A real-life OpenTTD :D
09:06:43 *** Eddi|zuHause4 is now known as Eddi|zuHause
09:12:28 <Elukka> Eddi|zuHause: do you happen to know what oberhümer is talking about with regards to the palette?
09:13:49 <Elukka> ...oh, i may have used the palette that doesn't include company colors
09:14:25 <Elukka> don't know if it matters since there aren't any though
09:14:40 <planetmaker> it matters
09:15:01 <planetmaker> there's only one valid palette: that which contains all colours
09:15:05 <Elukka> well, that explains it
09:15:20 <Elukka> i did have both files but must have clicked the wrong one
09:25:24 <MNIM> hmmm
09:25:25 <MNIM> I wonder
09:25:56 <MNIM> the car removal button in the autoreplace window, does it also work when I replace a 0.5 tile long loc with a 0.8 loc?

09:35:03 <Diablo-D3> goddamnit I hate ships sometimes
09:36:07 <norbert79> Diablo-D3: Please refrain from such behaviour here...
09:36:56 <planetmaker> use a proper ship path finder then, Diablo-D3
09:37:03 *** Adambean has joined #openttd
09:37:49 <norbert79> It would be also advisable reviewing the ship you would like to send somewhere, if the specific ship is capable of transporting specific goods.
09:38:27 <erik1984> or use more buoys
09:38:40 <norbert79> Indeed a good idea too
09:38:58 <norbert79> a well layed down grid can do wonders
09:39:29 <Diablo-D3> erik1984: the depot is right infront of the rifg
09:41:07 <Diablo-D3> planetmaker: which one?

09:53:02 <planetmaker> Diablo-D3: it does not for me ;-)
09:53:20 <planetmaker> (which again proves: whining is annoying)
09:53:24 <peter1138> use a proper bouncer host :p
09:53:30 <norbert79> lol
09:53:32 <norbert79> touché :)
09:53:58 <planetmaker> peter1138: kernel upgrades usually means the applications running on the host need to reboot ;-)
09:54:10 <norbert79> planetmaker: ever heard of ksplice? :)
09:54:21 <peter1138> ksplice is nasty
09:54:43 <norbert79> peter1138: Never tested it, but it sure works nice
09:54:52 <norbert79> peter1138: according from those who run it
09:55:07 <planetmaker> that won't help either, unless you pay for it
09:55:13 *** sla_ro|master has quit IRC
09:55:23 <norbert79> planetmaker: for some systems it's free of charge
09:55:26 <peter1138> it binary patches the kernel with bits
09:55:31 <planetmaker> not for server systems
09:55:42 <peter1138> so you're running a mix of the old & new kernel
09:56:08 <peter1138> also, oracle bought it and changed everything
09:56:10 <norbert79> peter1138: Not at all, basically it just updates those files, which needed to be updated. planetmaker: right... Pity
09:56:23 <norbert79> peter1138: Oracle bought it true, but changed nothing yet
09:56:25 <peter1138> the kernel is not "files"
09:56:32 <planetmaker> it's one file
09:57:00 <norbert79> If you use a modular kernel, then it isn't and the repos one aren't monolitic
09:57:55 <norbert79> but true, no server support.. shame
09:58:01 <planetmaker> oh, and it's owned by oracle. That bodes worse than I expected
09:58:14 <norbert79> aye, Oracle lay it's hands on everything.
09:58:23 <norbert79> I hope there will be a fork of this solution too
09:58:34 <norbert79> LibreOffice just got better since not under Oracle control
09:59:08 <peter1138> how's mysql going...
09:59:14 *** Biolunar has joined #openttd

10:14:26 <Ammler> and there might be more today...
10:16:10 <Ammler> how long does it take to xz a 5GB tar?
10:19:27 <norbert79> Ammler: Depends on if SSD or regular SATA HDD, and on many small details
10:20:04 <norbert79> if it contains more smaller files or few big one...
10:20:13 <^Spike^> let's say a mix :)
10:20:24 <Ammler> runs now 7mins already
10:20:39 <SpComb> uncompressed tar?
10:20:46 <norbert79> Realistic, depends on device load
10:20:55 *** andythenorth has joined #openttd
10:20:56 <andythenorth>
10:21:14 <andythenorth> I never used deluxe paint, but it was responsible for some awesome amiga graphics in the early 1990s
10:21:15 *** Pulec has quit IRC
10:21:47 <Ammler> SpComb, yes vzdump
10:21:47 <norbert79> andythenorth: Looks nice, but what's the problem with GIMP? :S
10:22:04 <andythenorth> there doesn't have to be a problem
10:22:05 <SpComb> oh, not even very pathological then
10:22:15 <andythenorth> not everything needs to be problematised
10:22:22 <norbert79> andythenorth: Ah, just listed as FYI... Sorry :)
10:22:32 <SpComb> a 5GB tar.gz could take milennia to extract, for all one knows :)
10:22:38 *** andythenorth has left #openttd
10:24:45 <norbert79> Hah, grafx2 is in the repos, nice
10:25:27 <peter1138> 256-colour!
10:25:39 <norbert79> just apt-get -ing it
10:25:58 <norbert79> lets see...
10:26:39 <norbert79> hmm, nice old-style 320x200 stlyed editing layout
10:27:58 <Sacro> I loved DP"
10:27:59 <peter1138> seems more than that
10:27:59 <Sacro> DP2#
10:28:35 <norbert79> looks handy, a bit uncomfortable after GIMP though
10:28:39 <Sacro> amigas had 16 bit colour
10:28:42 <norbert79> need to get used to this
10:28:48 <peter1138> Sacro, not really
10:28:52 <Sacro> well
10:28:53 <norbert79> Sacro: Amigas had as many colours as many you wanted...
10:29:03 <Sacro> you could use blitter tricks
10:29:58 <norbert79> Sacro: That was the whole point. Besides there was the chipset which made the screen refresh over the top of everything. Amiga's were nice and are still nice, though it's a very closed product, that's why it would fade away completly...
10:30:12 <norbert79> I personally liked Amigas, never had one though
10:30:14 <Sacro> Yeah
10:30:21 <Sacro> I love my 500
10:30:32 <norbert79> Well, there is the 1000, 1200, 4000...
10:30:41 <peter1138> HAM-8, heh
10:30:46 <norbert79> There is more, than the 500 :)
10:30:52 <peter1138> allowed 18-bit colour
10:31:02 <Sacro> Yes :D
10:31:04 <peter1138> but only relies on the picture somewhat
10:31:05 <V453000> throws errors under win7 :|
10:31:11 <Sacro> norbert79: pssh
10:31:19 <Sacro> 500 .
10:31:21 <Sacro> > *
10:31:53 <norbert79> Workspace should go open source
10:31:58 <peter1138> think the 500 only had HAM6 though
10:32:08 <peter1138> which is 4096 colours
10:32:23 <Sacro> Yeah
10:33:18 <norbert79> PegasOS looks interesting, the problem comes with the software and the price of the machine.
10:33:39 <norbert79> there used to be an openttd for Pegasos too, pity not anymore around
10:34:16 <peter1138> it's all rubbish
10:34:21 <peter1138> everyone knows that RISC OS was the best
10:34:28 <norbert79> :)
10:34:36 <norbert79> No, Mainframes and MVS is the best :D
10:34:45 <norbert79> Or TSO
10:34:49 <Sacro> I miss Workbench 1.3
10:35:18 <norbert79> Well, in case you are Linux you can still install AmiWM :)
10:35:27 <norbert79> are using...
10:38:14 <Sacro> no
10:38:16 <Sacro> that's WB2
10:56:32 <Diablo-D3> one city is now using up 50 800 pax ferries

12:16:48 * Pinkbeast can manage to survive the Wave-Gotik-Treffen but that doesn't really demand knowing any words beyond "bier", "wurst", and "bitte"
12:17:05 <Eddi|zuHause> they say "bitte"?

12:18:12 <norbert79> Eddi|zuHause: my favorite
12:18:22 <Pinkbeast> Eddi> at one point we were listening to some metal band in the pagan village, and at the end of each song the audience would clap and cheer.
12:18:32 <Pinkbeast> And the singer would bellow DANKE SCHON in his metal voice
12:18:48 <Pinkbeast> And _every time_ the audience would shout back BITTE SCHON in unison

12:21:43 <norbert79> Eddi|zuHause: No idea, but probably :)
12:26:25 <V453000> Eddi|zuHause: can you tell me a single point why would an "invisible leading engine GRF" be a stupid idea?
12:26:38 <Pinkbeast> Of non-zero length?
12:26:48 <Eddi|zuHause> V453000: not the engine itself, but the reasons why he did it
12:27:25 <V453000> well his official reasons are a bit odd, but it is still very useful :)
12:27:45 <V453000> Pinkbeast: I guess a vehicle cannot have zero length, can it?
12:28:26 <Pinkbeast> I mean more if it has significant length won't it look really weird when waiting at signals etc?
12:29:05 <V453000> if it is basically invisible?
12:29:13 <V453000> and can be put in the end of train for some cases?
12:29:29 <Eddi|zuHause> V453000: but there are several invisible engine grfs already
12:29:56 <norbert79> What is an invisible engine good for?
12:29:57 <V453000> yes but not usable for such a purpose as multiplying engines, which people cry about for ages
12:30:26 <Eddi|zuHause> the only interesting thing he did was add the cc-blob in the depot
12:31:01 <Eddi|zuHause> V453000: but for that, fix the original grf in the first place, not make some stupid hack-addon
12:32:29 <V453000> fix? why
12:32:59 <V453000> and well, stupid, doesnt force anyone to use it and it is quite a gentle solution
12:33:34 <Eddi|zuHause> you are a truly weird person...

13:01:08 <b_jonas> wouldn't it be hard to manipulate such an engine with the current UI?
13:02:03 <norbert79> b_jonas: How do you mean?
13:02:05 <b_jonas> I mean, even now the UI is a bit tricky, the way you have to drag-drop a large airplane to a narrow line to put it to a group, and no feedback on which group it will drop to
13:02:09 <Elukka> so, wikipedia and brawa conflict on the length of 4 axle coaches by a pixel or two
13:02:50 <b_jonas> perhaps if the invisible engine still showed up on the trains and depot window, but not on the map
13:03:04 <Elukka> oberhümer prefers wiki, i went with brawa since they have pictures, and i'm really not so sure it's much of a difference
13:03:07 <Elukka> and i'd rather not redo all the sprites :P
13:03:22 <Eddi|zuHause> the problem currently is that there is no indication what is the "pointer" of the mouse, while you are dragging a vehicle
13:03:37 <b_jonas> Eddi|zuHause: and that the bar of the group is not highlighted
13:03:45 <b_jonas> and also that you _must_ use drag-drop
13:03:49 <b_jonas> I'd like an alternate interface
13:03:50 <norbert79> But why using such workarounds and tricks, why not using a seperate own GRF?
13:04:28 <b_jonas> like an "add" button for the group which you first click, then you either click a train _anywhere_, or buy a train engine, and it's added to the group
13:05:10 <b_jonas> I've been grown up in Windows where drag-drop is always just a shortcut, and non-drag-drop interfaces still can do anything
13:05:30 <Elukka> Eddi|ZuHause, or anyone who knows german :D could you translate this snippet? google translate butchers it
13:05:32 <Elukka> "Für viele preußische Bauarten wurden aufgrund von Änderungen der Innenräume, Türen, Aborte usw. und aufgrund von Neuauflagen der Musterblätter mehrere Skizzenblätter aufgestellt."
13:05:35 <b_jonas> same thing for selling a vehicle
13:06:20 <norbert79> Elukka: What the hell are you reading? :))
13:06:52 <Eddi|zuHause> Elukka: something about "there are several construction drawings, because lots of changes to interior, doors, toilets"
13:06:53 <b_jonas> the list entry or button you're about to drop to should be highlighted at the very least
13:06:53 <Elukka> wiki article on prussian coaches
13:07:09 <norbert79> Skizzenblatt could be translated as blueprints...
13:07:15 <Elukka> i'd assume they'd have slight variations in length
13:07:18 <b_jonas> of course, we've inherited some of this GUI from TTD
13:07:18 <Eddi|zuHause> ah, yes, that's the word
13:07:36 <Elukka> it really seems unlikely to me that brawa would make a mistake (resulting in a longer coach) in their measurements
13:07:56 <Eddi|zuHause> Elukka: i don't think the length really varied that much, everything was done on roughly the same frame
13:08:45 <Eddi|zuHause> but... i'm doing something different now... don't distract me!!
13:08:47 <Elukka> well, brawa's are 19.55 meters, wiki says 18.55
13:09:24 <Eddi|zuHause> 18.5 is the measure i usually find
13:09:34 <Elukka> 19 is what i drew my stuff on
13:09:50 *** erik1984 has quit IRC
13:10:50 <norbert79> "Since the new resissued style sheets many preussen layouts were given new blueprints, because of the the changes in the interior, doors, toilettes, etc"

13:22:13 <norbert79> ...well, the day isn't over yet... :)
13:30:34 <Elukka> wiki seems to indicate the length of the prussian coaches indeed varied
13:30:57 <Elukka> in the context of both the six and eight-wheeled umbauwagen, it's mentioned that the undercarriage was rebuilt to a common length

13:58:58 <andythenorth> ideas for what 'Factory' should look like in FIRS?
13:59:45 <dihedral> hello
14:00:11 <Terkhen> factory-ish?
14:00:27 <Terkhen> hi dihedral and andythenorth
14:00:46 <dihedral>
14:07:27 <planetmaker> <-- andythenorth
14:07:43 <andythenorth> hmm
14:08:04 <andythenorth> one reason I am unenthusiastic about 'Factory' is that we already had them
14:08:11 <andythenorth> how about 'Workshop' ?
14:08:35 <Pinkbeast> What's it going to accept and create?
14:08:43 <planetmaker>
14:09:06 <andythenorth> accepts metal, maybe mnsp
14:09:08 <andythenorth> produces goods
14:09:14 <planetmaker> hm... do we have a 'factory' in FIRS? Currently not, right?
14:09:17 <andythenorth> I removed it
14:09:21 <norbert79> Or like a car factory
14:09:23 <norbert79>
14:09:25 <planetmaker> Then keep it removed ;-)
14:09:42 <andythenorth> there are valid reasons for it
14:10:06 <planetmaker> There a valid reasons against it
14:10:10 <andythenorth> norbert79: car factory will come in a FIRS economy, special feature
14:10:25 <Pinkbeast> Foundry?
14:10:29 <andythenorth> got one
14:10:41 <planetmaker> A car factory could summarize the supply producing industries to one
14:10:48 <norbert79> andythenorth: Neat. Yet I think generic "factory" should really not be there, since it always depends on what you produce
14:11:04 * andythenorth will ponder further
14:11:12 <Pinkbeast> A foundry is how I'd describe a factory that makes random things out of metal
14:11:17 <Terkhen> isn't that similar to what the machine shop / metal foundry already do?
14:11:30 <Pinkbeast> Oh, but FIRS already has a metal foundry, yes
14:11:46 <planetmaker> Terkhen: exactly
14:11:50 <norbert79> Pinkbeast: "Random things" - Well, car chasis and springs are also different things, yet two different factories are needed :)
14:11:59 <andythenorth> fwiw, yesterday's logs would show the discussion on this so far
14:12:05 <andythenorth> thereby avoiding boring repetition :)
14:12:06 <planetmaker> IMHO a car factory could only be alternative to those
14:12:21 <andythenorth> imo FIRS needs another destination for metal
14:12:32 <andythenorth> and there should be a metal-> building materials chain
14:12:34 <planetmaker> well..., if it's worth to keep in mind, store it in a ticket, andythenorth
14:12:35 <norbert79> What about fridge factory, electrical factory, army material factory, etc etc :)
14:12:45 <andythenorth> it needs to be generic
14:12:52 <andythenorth> if the output cargo is 'goods'
14:12:59 <norbert79> hard to do so, since there is no such thing as a generic factory
14:13:12 <MNIM> there is in OTTD >.>
14:13:14 * andythenorth considered going specific, and adding a rolling mill
14:13:23 <planetmaker> andythenorth: IMHO we should first create a full diagramme of cargo flow
14:13:27 <norbert79> hmm, maybe 3 buildings within there: 1 office area, 1 producing building, 1 storage area
14:13:35 <planetmaker> Then we could further discuss things like that
14:13:38 <norbert79> Regarding the layout
14:13:47 <andythenorth> planetmaker: I guess I have one in my head. You can't see in my head?
14:13:48 <andythenorth> :P
14:14:18 <planetmaker> even when I know them (roughly) in my head, too, it makes for a bad planning basis
14:14:36 <norbert79> draw them, and make pictures of them or let them scanned
14:14:40 <planetmaker> and for an even worse arguement for or against something
14:14:43 <norbert79> rough drawings always help

14:22:58 <Jabol> Hello.
14:23:07 <norbert79> Hello.
14:23:17 <planetmaker> hello Jabol
14:23:49 <Jabol> I have a question: When a new version of OpenTTD will come out, will copy&pasting the openttd.cfg file copy the options from the older version to a newer one?
14:24:20 <norbert79> Why? Why don't you jusat use the old file, and it gets feeded by the new options easy
14:24:24 <Yexo> yes, but if you keep your openttd.cfg in a central directory you don't even have to do that
14:24:48 <Jabol> Ah, so as long as I will not delete my OpenTTD, doing that won't be necessary for newer versions?
14:24:54 <norbert79> yep
14:24:59 <Jabol> Sorry for my English, I know it's challenging to understand.
14:25:09 <norbert79> No, we understand you well
14:25:17 <planetmaker> Jabol: the readme in section 4.2(?) tells you the directories
14:25:38 <planetmaker> in windows it'd be something like c:\my files\openttd\ or similar
14:26:07 <planetmaker> then it can be used by several versions of openttd concurrently even
14:26:11 <norbert79> Basically openttd.cfg files can be kept at two places 1.) in your home directory, under OpenTTD, or 2.) in the root section of thew binary, where your game is. If you choose 2, remember, that all data will be read from there, and every subdirectory will be used from that directory.
14:26:12 <planetmaker> (like nightly + stable)
14:27:00 *** Markk_ has joined #openttd
14:27:27 <norbert79> if more, than 1 person is using the game, I would use the default option, the 1.), and keep it there. It will be saved under C:\Doucments and Settings\Your name\My Documents\OpenTTD

16:31:24 <Jabol> It is possible to build all industries where you want? For example the refinery?
16:31:28 <Diablo-D3> um? at the top?
16:32:04 <TWerkhoven> some industries are restricted
16:32:19 <TWerkhoven> refinery for instance cannot be built at the centre of the map
16:32:22 <Jabol> I want to build a refinery and oilrigs in a city, also I enabled building industries?
16:32:27 <Jabol> Ignore the ?
16:32:49 <TWerkhoven> refineries have a max distance from map-edge, configurable in advanced settings
16:33:52 <TWerkhoven> oilrigs need to be built in a big enough body of water, not sure what restrictions apply to oil wells
16:34:41 <Jabol> Uh, I meant oilwells
16:35:47 <Rubidium> planetmaker: is it near my mine?
16:36:08 <Elukka> i never understood why the oil industries are restricted to near map edges
16:37:04 <TWerkhoven> i think its to promote oil by tanker-ships, but its just a guess
16:39:10 <Eddi|zuHause> Elukka: once upon a time the map edge was coast, so the refinery-limit meant "near the coast line". which actually applies to most refineries worldwide
16:39:45 <Eddi|zuHause> it was meant to promote ships from oil rigs to refineries
16:39:59 <Elukka> i se
16:40:01 <Elukka> *see
16:40:38 <Eddi|zuHause> it makes little sense with the new freeform map edges
16:41:02 <Elukka> or oil wells

17:28:18 <MNIM> I mean replace/upgrade
17:28:38 <MNIM> no wait, I didn't get it wrong, you did
17:28:51 <MNIM> I mean aircraft, as well as stop-trains
17:33:34 <planetmaker> <-- <3 rivers :-)
17:35:29 <Rubidium> that must really be the first landscape ;)
17:35:55 <Rubidium> and yes, there are less than 3 rivers in the screenshot
17:36:40 <planetmaker> there was no irony... I like how they meander through the landscape
17:37:04 <SpComb> wait, openttd developers actually playing the game?
17:37:16 <planetmaker> and the one river... only misses one tile where it goes into the sea

17:46:02 *** Amis has quit IRC
17:46:17 <andythenorth> slow? :P
17:46:21 <planetmaker> but the game makes for nice screenshots...
17:46:35 <andythenorth> maybe you need eddi's patch :)
17:46:49 <andythenorth> the 'rewind the year' patch
17:47:06 <planetmaker> I simply need daylength ;-)
17:47:15 <Terkhen> :P
17:47:22 <planetmaker> or I simply decide to ignore the year completely
17:48:33 <planetmaker> hm... many things can be done well by RV...
17:48:44 <b_jonas> planetmaker: wait, why do the support walls of raised squares look like that?
17:48:50 <b_jonas> what grf is this?
17:48:51 <planetmaker> Not sure though whether I should have added egrvts2, ogfx+rv and heqs... ;-)
17:49:08 <andythenorth> you'll have a busy buy menu
17:49:19 <planetmaker> b_jonas: that should default OpenGFX
17:49:56 <planetmaker> yup
17:50:03 <planetmaker> it is
17:50:08 <Terkhen> egrvts and ogfx-rv are mutually exclusive IMO
17:50:27 <planetmaker> :-) yes, they don't match
17:50:39 <planetmaker> egrvts vehicles are "better"
17:50:40 <Terkhen> besides, egrvts vehicles are cheaper and carry more :P
17:50:43 <planetmaker> yup
17:50:45 <b_jonas> hmm
17:50:53 <planetmaker> b_jonas: in arctic climate
17:51:03 <planetmaker> other climates should look different iirc
17:51:43 *** Mucht has joined #openttd
17:51:48 <b_jonas> even in arctic it doesn't quite look like that to me
17:52:04 *** andythenorth has quit IRC
17:52:23 <planetmaker> you really mean the normal foundations like for the half-tile rails?
17:52:50 <planetmaker> and you don't have a too-old OpenGFX?
17:53:05 <b_jonas> I mean both the half-tile rails and the whole tile rails on sloped land
17:53:14 <b_jonas> on your screenshot they look vertically striped
17:53:19 <planetmaker> they are
17:54:30 <planetmaker> I don't quite recall whether or when that would have been changed
17:54:39 <b_jonas> wait, I'll try to unload newgrfs
17:55:31 <b_jonas> ah, NOW they're striped
17:55:38 <b_jonas> probably some newgrf I had loaded changed it
17:55:43 *** Diablo-D3 has quit IRC
17:56:20 <planetmaker> <-- my newgrf list
17:56:40 <b_jonas> no, I get the striped behavior now
17:56:52 <b_jonas> so I need to examine _my_ newgrf list to see what removed the stripes
17:57:04 <planetmaker> the unversioned NewGRFs are the latest version I have locally, built myself
17:57:21 <planetmaker> hehe :-) There might be quite some which modify it
17:57:42 <planetmaker> hm... where did the DWE - author vanish to, btw?
17:58:41 <Terkhen> real life?
17:59:00 <planetmaker> probably
17:59:25 *** frosch123 has joined #openttd
17:59:26 <Rubidium> down the oblivian hole?
17:59:36 <Terkhen> maybe :P
17:59:36 <planetmaker> Terkhen: I only used both vehicles sets (ogfx+rv, egrvts2) though to give both a shot at the same time. From a gameplay POV it was kinda clear that it's stupid
17:59:52 <planetmaker> he, yeah, probably there. Would be a pity...
18:00:03 <planetmaker> others might feel better there than him ;-)
18:00:35 *** andythenorth has joined #openttd
18:00:38 <Terkhen> planetmaker: I thought about giving ogfx-rv a check for egrvts, to adapt its costs accordingly
18:00:49 <Terkhen> but since they fulfill almost the same roles... it's not worth the effort IMO
18:01:22 *** erik1984 has joined #openttd
18:01:24 <planetmaker> Well. It's not too much effort either, I guess. It's just setting two numbers. And I'm sure people will want to combine it no matter what
18:02:32 <planetmaker> But I'd wait for a more final egrvts2
18:02:33 <b_jonas> hmm, now I'm getting mixed walls: vertically striped ones for half-tile rails but non-striped for full-tile
18:02:41 <planetmaker> :-D
18:03:35 <planetmaker> probably an old NewGRF then which doesn't know the half-tile rail foundations yet
18:03:46 <planetmaker> and only defines the standard ones
18:04:11 * frosch123 bets on brick foundations
18:04:26 * andythenorth bets on horses
18:04:30 <andythenorth> but only occasionally
18:04:39 <frosch123> it supports halftile foundations, but misses some of the defautl foundations for about 4 years
18:04:42 <andythenorth> what did we need to fix?
18:04:44 <andythenorth> oh
18:05:05 <andythenorth> a better way to do vehicle-specific storage than hacking on a cargo or subtype (e.g. regearing, liveries)
18:05:16 <planetmaker> quak :-)
18:05:20 <frosch123> moin
18:06:04 <b_jonas> it seems the Japanese Landscape replaces the full-tile ones
18:06:09 <planetmaker> when starting this game it became immediately clear why adding different dock sprites to FIRS makes sense (or is it FISH?)
18:06:25 <planetmaker> b_jonas: make a bug report then
18:06:31 <planetmaker> (if you have the newest of that)
18:06:40 <planetmaker> they actively develop that NewGRF...
18:06:43 <b_jonas> I might not have the newest
18:06:53 <b_jonas> I probably don't
18:06:56 <b_jonas> let me check
18:07:00 <planetmaker> well... give it a brief check and then do the report :-) yeah
18:07:48 <b_jonas> if I upgrade the newgrfs with the Online Content dialog, will I still be able to play games I started with the old version?
18:07:55 <b_jonas> I don't want to break the game I'm playing
18:08:23 <Terkhen> the old versions of the NewGRFs will be kept
18:08:30 <b_jonas> ok, thanks
18:08:32 <Terkhen> so if you load old savegames they will use the old version
18:08:36 <andythenorth> planetmaker: the dock sprites are in CHIPS
18:08:40 *** loopcoop has joined #openttd
18:08:44 <planetmaker> oh :-)
18:09:14 <planetmaker> matches fishing harbour perfectly.
18:09:25 <andythenorth> odd that :O
18:09:32 <b_jonas> nope, it still doesn't replace the half-tile ones but replaces the full-tile ones
18:09:33 *** macee has joined #openttd
18:09:42 <b_jonas> maybe it doesn't want to support arctic?
18:09:53 <b_jonas> I mean, it's a Japanese set, and Japan doesn't have arctic climate
18:10:05 <planetmaker> some things are like in real life, though:
18:10:14 <planetmaker> some towns have too much money for stupid projects.
18:10:18 <planetmaker> Like that long bridge there
18:10:28 <planetmaker> Built. And then not connected to the other town
18:11:05 <planetmaker> b_jonas: I'd bet it's the same in other climates then, too
18:11:27 <b_jonas> however, it doesn't seem like the version has changed
18:11:38 <b_jonas> so this isn't actively developped
18:11:42 <b_jonas> or else I'm confusing something
18:12:25 <planetmaker> I know for a fact that people are working on the Japanese NewGRFs ;-)
18:12:42 <planetmaker> it might not progress at a neck-breaking pace, but they work on it
18:12:58 <planetmaker> so just report it :-) Maybe they'll take care of it in the next release
18:13:28 <b_jonas> I'll test temperate climate first
18:13:45 <b_jonas> also, which was the city station grf some of you recommended the other day?
18:15:56 <frosch123> planetmaker: clearly the bridges was subsidised by the state, while the road was not
18:16:07 <planetmaker> :-D
18:16:53 <andythenorth> o
18:17:37 <andythenorth> so just how fixed is the cargo limit?
18:17:44 <andythenorth> could 32 be expanded to 64?
18:17:54 *** |Jeroen| has quit IRC
18:18:00 <peter1138> it could
18:18:10 <peter1138> but there are masks that are 32 bit
18:18:12 <frosch123> no, it cannot. people would get insane :p
18:18:35 <andythenorth> is 48 a power of two?
18:18:42 <b_jonas> andythenorth: no
18:18:45 <peter1138> they seem to cope with millions of vehicle grfs :S
18:19:09 *** Wolf01 has joined #openttd
18:19:43 <frosch123> anyway, i would guess the limit could be increased to 255 cargos per grf
18:20:13 <Wolf01> hello
18:20:37 <Terkhen> hi Wolf01
18:20:41 <Terkhen> why do you need 64 cargos? :P
18:20:47 <andythenorth> I don't
18:21:13 <b_jonas> yep, even in temperate that GRF replaces only the full-tile walls
18:21:21 <frosch123> well, i assume andy is more intereseted in making cargos per grf
18:21:25 <frosch123> not globally conflicting
18:22:23 * andythenorth counts how many are in RT3
18:22:52 <b_jonas> ok, now where do I download sources for GRFs so I can find out where to report bugs?
18:23:00 *** Mucht has quit IRC
18:23:23 <frosch123> has links to most grfs it distributes
18:23:31 *** Mucht has joined #openttd
18:23:49 <b_jonas> oh, OpenTTD 1.1.3 is out. does it differ from 1.1.3-RC1?
18:23:54 <planetmaker> yes
18:24:01 <b_jonas> okay, I'll update then
18:27:32 * andythenorth thinks RT3 had about 36 cargos all told
18:27:36 <andythenorth> which is an unusual number
18:27:47 <frosch123> ttd had 12?
18:28:40 <frosch123> or 29 if you count all climates
18:29:15 <andythenorth> a constraint is good
18:29:45 <andythenorth> the 32 cargo limit is one of the few things I haven't complained about :P
18:29:57 <andythenorth> sometimes thought it would be nice to have about 40
18:30:02 <andythenorth> and 3 outputs per industry
18:30:09 <andythenorth> but where would it end? :o :P
18:30:20 <b_jonas> wouldn't that make it more difficult to play?
18:30:39 <andythenorth> follow that argument back, and FIRS doesn't get started in the first place ;)
18:30:51 <b_jonas> can you even invent an industry chain such that there aren't pairs of cargos that feel like they play exactly the same?
18:31:03 <andythenorth> maybe
18:31:21 <andythenorth> anyway, 32 is enough, I'm not even transporting all of the cargos in my current game :P
18:31:44 <planetmaker> b_jonas: I'm sure one could invent such chain
18:33:58 <b_jonas> hmm, this forum topic is long
18:34:05 <b_jonas> I won't read all of it
18:34:26 <planetmaker> lengthy :-)
18:34:43 <planetmaker> but... originates in 2003...
18:36:08 <b_jonas> okay, but where do I get the sources?
18:36:21 <b_jonas> or at least something about where I report the bug
18:37:23 <Terkhen> if you are in dobut, post it at the forum thread itself
18:37:27 <Terkhen> doubt*
18:38:01 <b_jonas> but the forum thread is long, if I don't read it, I'll most likely just repeat something someone has already posted
18:38:10 <b_jonas> what are these support walls called? I'd at least like to search
18:39:58 <b_jonas> does this forum software allow me to search in this thread only?
18:40:03 <Terkhen> probably
18:40:21 <b_jonas> I can restrict to a forum, but not to a thread
18:40:59 <Terkhen> " forum thread title word to look for" <--- if the forum search fails you that's what I would do (in google)
18:41:15 <b_jonas> that could help too, yes
18:44:30 <frosch123> <- how long will it take for newgrf authors to make their sets disable themself when this one is present? :p
18:48:57 <planetmaker> b_jonas: but that thread is the japanes set's dev thread. Bugs reports probably should go there
18:49:21 <b_jonas> okay, I'm still searching a bit, then reporting
18:49:31 <planetmaker> <-- you find (meanwhile) all Japanes projects here
18:49:35 <b_jonas> thanks
18:49:54 <b_jonas> ah, that one has a tracker
18:49:59 <planetmaker> basically... all NewGRFs which are open-source are found there... I know none which not
18:51:23 <b_jonas> I still can't see where I can download the source from there
18:51:37 <b_jonas> ah, I found it
18:51:45 <b_jonas> I have to choose a subproject, then Repository

19:15:14 <andythenorth> planetmaker: has your game triggered any FIRS suggestions yet? :)
19:16:04 <planetmaker> not sure... maybe one should work on the station rating for fishing grounds
19:16:08 <planetmaker> but maybe not
19:16:20 <andythenorth> which station rating algorithm are you playing with?
19:16:22 <planetmaker> one Josephine leaves it at not too bright rating
19:16:34 <planetmaker> everything default
19:17:21 <planetmaker> But maybe it just needs a bigger ship doing the fishing
19:17:36 <planetmaker> but then I wonder what I use the small ships for
19:18:08 <planetmaker> as such anyway: nothing I can't solve by proper vehicles really
19:18:17 <planetmaker> thus I'm not sure it should be changed
