07:48:51 <Terkhen> good morning
07:49:09 <LordAro> morning Terkhen
07:51:39 <xmirakulix> good morning
07:52:41 <xmirakulix> LordAro: did you have time to check the two 32bpp ez patches?
07:53:29 <LordAro> i haven't checked them, i'm waiting for permission to upload them to coop, then the build system will test them
07:53:49 <xmirakulix> ah, I see
07:54:38 <LordAro> in other words, i'm waiting for Ammler to wake up :)
07:54:45 <xmirakulix> :)
07:55:15 <xmirakulix> so I shall test, if they apply against the most current trunk in the meantime
07:55:28 <LordAro> thanks
07:55:49 <LordAro> i'd do it myself but.... minecraft is calling to me :)
07:56:33 <xmirakulix> I played it once, but the call didn't reach out for me :)
07:59:19 <xmirakulix> update: The patches apply and compile nicely with current r22970
07:59:51 <LordAro> oh good. thanks for that

08:30:25 *** ChanServ sets mode: +o Alberth
08:41:53 <PeanutHorst> ... am I the only person who thinks that a combination between OpenTTD and Minecraft would be /awesome/
08:42:41 <LordAro> since the 2 games are almost entirely different, probably, yes :)
08:43:20 <PeanutHorst> Minecart mechanics are woefully lacking, but I do enjoy building bridges and rails by hand block-by-block
08:43:35 <PeanutHorst> openTTD has very fun mechanics but doesn't let you micromanage to the same extent
08:44:30 *** Neon has quit IRC
08:45:20 *** Neon has joined #openttd
08:45:44 <xmirakulix> Can't wait to see a full featured high-capacity roro station built in mine craft :-)
08:46:19 <xmirakulix> Do they have PBS there? :-P
08:47:19 <LordAro> it has redstone, and a station like that is almost certainly possible
08:48:47 <LordAro> notch plays openttd as well
08:49:05 <Terkhen> yup
08:49:22 *** DayDreamer has joined #openttd
08:49:48 <xmirakulix> I see that my knowledge about minecraft is clearly outdated :)
08:54:35 <Alberth> PeanutHorst: OpenTTD is slightly more a tycoon game, where you don't have the time to micro-manage everything.
08:55:07 <Eddi|zuHause> yet openttd has still an awful lot of micromanagement
08:55:11 * Rubidium wonders why he heard complaints about there being too much micromanagement
08:55:34 <Alberth> Eddi|zuHause: I said 'slightly' :p
08:56:30 <Alberth> but it depends a bit on how you play. Adding newgrfs and tweaking the network is not by definition necessary
08:57:18 *** Progman has joined #openttd
08:58:02 <Eddi|zuHause> things like adding capacity/trains to an existing route to handle increased capacity. or spreading out/synchronizing timetables in a tram network
08:58:11 <PeanutHorst> Alberth: I wouldn't know, I haven't played any Tycoon games, unless Theme Hospital counts
08:58:31 <PeanutHorst> OpenTTD was my first after someone else introduced me to it
08:58:36 <PeanutHorst> and I stayed because I enjoyed it
08:58:37 <Alberth> PeanutHorst: TH is much more micro management
08:58:43 <PeanutHorst> I don't really have a comparison to it
08:59:02 <PeanutHorst> Theme Hospital isn't micromanagement, it's a descent into madness/absurdity
08:59:15 <PeanutHorst> with TV Personalities and Inflated Heads respectively :p
08:59:16 <Eddi|zuHause> Theme Hospital... is that anything like Biing!?
08:59:55 <Alberth> PeanutHorst: that's just a theme, just like toyland.
09:00:07 <PeanutHorst> keine idea :p
09:00:18 <PeanutHorst> Alberth: difference is you can't switch to a more realistic on
09:00:19 <PeanutHorst> e
09:00:35 <PeanutHorst> no more realistic setting was provided, and there's no modding community around TH like there was around TT
09:00:50 <Alberth> I played a bit Corsix-TH, and you constantly have to keep an eye on your staff, and move them manually
09:01:22 <Alberth> TT is much older, with people with a different background
09:01:38 <Alberth> ie in TT days, everybody did assembly language and basic
09:02:45 <Alberth> nowadays, very few people understand how a CPU works with its memory, or know what to do with a a command prompt
09:03:04 <PeanutHorst> heh
09:03:08 <Eddi|zuHause> didn't take "verybody", only two or three guys
09:03:08 <PeanutHorst> I have the opposite problem
09:03:19 <PeanutHorst> I know the low level of a computer very well, I certainly know my way on the command line
09:03:19 <Eddi|zuHause> *every*
09:03:24 <PeanutHorst> I do not know how to code, though
09:03:30 <PeanutHorst> know BASIC, a bit, but not asm or C
09:03:49 <Alberth> PeanutHorst: lots of room to learn ! :)
09:03:59 <PeanutHorst> and BASIC isn't the language it used to be - it was fine for 8-bit micros but you can't really take full advantage of a 32-bit or 64-bit ZOMGtastic cpu using only basic
09:04:25 <PeanutHorst> for a start the PEEKing and POKEing would become real confusing given you just went from 48K to at least 512M
09:05:04 <Alberth> PeanutHorst: in C you write *p = 3, but it is basically the same idea
09:05:13 *** pjpe has quit IRC
09:05:19 <PeanutHorst> heh
09:05:26 *** frosch123 has joined #openttd
09:05:30 <PeanutHorst> only somewhat modern language i've used is Gambas 2
09:05:33 <Alberth> moin frosch
09:05:36 <PeanutHorst> with a hint of bash and python
09:05:53 <Alberth> forget bash :)
09:06:06 <PeanutHorst> it was a bit easier to do Gambas, as it's basically BASIC with some object oriented stuff and without the castration of Visual Basic
09:06:15 <Alberth> python is good, a basic on steroids :)
09:06:31 <PeanutHorst> hah, I wish - I kind of need bash to do my job (i'm a systems administrator, and I don't like zsh or tcsh)
09:07:18 <frosch123> hai albert :)
09:07:43 <PeanutHorst> I am however planning to figure out if I can learn the necessary skills to make some NewGRFs
09:08:06 <PeanutHorst> thus far my attempts at Blender have been horrible (over the years) but i'm told it had a UI revision recently so I might try it again if I can make it compile
09:09:04 <Alberth> most graphics artists here use a pixel editor program afaik
09:09:18 <Alberth> eg gimp
09:09:20 <PeanutHorst> i'm told that doesn't cut it for 32bpp
09:09:39 <PeanutHorst> I do kind of enjoy the ez patches
09:09:50 <Alberth> oh, 32bpp, yeah you need blender or some other renderer then
09:10:00 <PeanutHorst> and i'd have them /everywhere/ if it was feasible to run the patches against a release instead of HEAD
09:10:25 <PeanutHorst> (as in, so I could distribute a build that would work with my server and everyone could enjoy 32bpp + ez)
09:11:48 <Rubidium> PeanutHorst: any patch that change the logic of the game will desync in multiplayer if not played against the right version
09:11:58 <Alberth> that patch is somewhat troublesome
09:12:11 <PeanutHorst> I'mm familiar
09:12:19 <PeanutHorst> hence why i said if it were feasible to patch against release
09:12:26 <PeanutHorst> because that's a stationary target, as opposed to HEAD
09:12:42 <Rubidium> stable changes every few weeks as well
09:13:25 <Alberth> what's the advantage? as Rubidium said, you can only do MP with people with the exact same pacthed version, so any revision will do
09:13:40 <Alberth> such as HEAD as of now :p
09:16:30 <Eddi|zuHause> you can perfectly well do pixel art in 32bpp :)
09:17:02 <Alberth> excetp call it ez-patched-r22970 instead of HEAD, and it is just as stable as a release, where you can also control when to go to the next 'release'
09:17:29 <Alberth> Eddi|zuHause: No, my screen is only 24bpp :(
09:18:21 <Eddi|zuHause> Alberth: the other 8bit only matter if you have a transparent screen :p
09:18:35 <Alberth> :)
09:19:50 <PeanutHorst> actually
09:19:55 <PeanutHorst> some video cards used to use that 8 bits
09:20:02 <PeanutHorst> as an overlay
09:20:04 <PeanutHorst> just sayin'
09:20:10 <PeanutHorst> (mainly high-end unix workstations)
09:23:05 <peter1138> most displays aren't even 24 bit :(
09:24:17 <Alberth> Who needs 24 bits? I have used systems with 8bit video for a long time :)
09:24:39 * Eddi|zuHause remembers displays that had 4 greyscale values and interpolated the other 12 by interpolating by flickering
09:25:02 * PeanutHorst has a SGI 21" Trinitron sitting next to him displaying 24 bits
09:25:35 <peter1138> TN LCDs are usually 6 bits per channel, with dithering (possibly temporal)
09:25:43 <peter1138> PeanutHorst, welcome to the 90s
09:26:24 <Eddi|zuHause> 21" CRT. those were monsters! :p
09:26:48 <Eddi|zuHause> now i have 27" TFT and they feel tiny
09:28:06 <peter1138> and yes, 32bpp graphics are very well possible by pixel pushing *grumbles*
09:28:51 <PeanutHorst> peter1138: it's connected to a machine running FreeBSD and X11 with CAD software
09:28:58 <PeanutHorst> it has a trackball also, connected via serial port
09:29:03 <PeanutHorst> so yes, welcome to the 90s
09:29:41 <peter1138> ooh ooh, it is a 386 too? :D
09:30:05 <Eddi|zuHause> they did have 486 and pentiums in the 90s :p
09:30:30 <peter1138> 486s if you were rich
09:30:40 <peter1138> pentiums in the mid-90s
09:30:52 <Eddi|zuHause> 21" CRTs also only if you were rich
09:30:58 <peter1138> true
09:31:10 <Eddi|zuHause> i had 14"!
09:31:31 <peter1138> i had a 13"!
09:31:49 <peter1138> only went up to 640x480
09:32:04 <peter1138> which was okay, cos the graphics card only have 256KB...
09:32:06 <frosch123> 11" with monochrome hercules graphics
09:32:22 <peter1138> the monitor had a switch on the back to emulate green/amber screens
09:32:25 <Eddi|zuHause> actually i had a really good 14", it went up to 1280x960
09:32:54 <peter1138> which it did by just turning off the guns
09:33:16 <peter1138> so it was pretty unusable cos things just disappeared, heh
09:48:59 <PeanutHorst> peter1138: i have a 486 here, a high-end one, but no the 21" is connected to a Pentium D 2.8GHz

10:22:45 <MNIM> oh, by the way, I forgot to ask
10:22:52 <MNIM> how did the berlin elections go?
10:23:01 <Eddi|zuHause> everybody won
10:24:36 *** JVassie has joined #openttd
10:25:45 <Eddi|zuHause> SPD won because they stayed largest party, CDU won because they gained votes, Green won because they also gained votes and probably get part of a government with SPD, Left won because they lost less than expected, pirates won because they got above 5% for the first time, FDP won because they finally reached their project 18... err... 1.8... whatever...
10:26:59 <frosch123> FDP - Fast drei Prozent
10:27:29 <Eddi|zuHause>
10:31:53 <Eddi|zuHause> actual results:,1518,786376,00.html
10:33:17 <frosch123> weird sorting order in that graph
10:33:33 <frosch123> it is sorted by neither the percentage this time nor last time
10:33:49 <Eddi|zuHause> yeah... indeed
10:34:41 <Rubidium> order by MIN(result 2006, result 2011)
10:35:06 <Eddi|zuHause> possibly: (percentage this time, for all previous members), (new parties), (other)
10:35:20 <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: no, that's not it either
10:35:44 <Rubidium> well...
10:35:52 <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: if you exclude "other" then rb is right
10:36:02 <Rubidium> where min(2006, 2011) > 5 order by min(2006, 2011)
10:36:22 <Rubidium> plus another to add the remaining votes
10:36:29 <Rubidium> i.e. the others
10:37:14 <Eddi|zuHause> "where max(2006,2011) > 5 order by min(2006,2011)" maybe
10:38:48 *** Wolf01 has joined #openttd
10:38:53 <Wolf01> hello
10:42:23 <vpelletier> looks like I misunderstood the meaning of "parent window": I was expecting it to be the window on which some action caused a new window to be created. Looks like it's more like the window geometrically containing considered window.
10:42:46 <vpelletier> so, is there a way to get what I expected ?
10:43:59 <Alberth> I don't understand "geometrically containing considered window"
10:45:10 *** valhallasw has joined #openttd
10:45:15 <Alberth> perhaps you mean that many windows have the main display window at the background as parent? (I think they do, never tested it)
10:45:45 <vpelletier> yes
10:46:32 <Alberth> it is sort of a root window, so that makes sense to me. Perhaps you should check for that case, and exclude that window from being parent
10:47:14 <vpelletier> well, at least printing "desc->parent_cls" in LocalGetWindowPlacement shows 0 (aka WC_MAIN_WINDOW) for both windows spawned by map click (ex, station details) and windows spawned fromother windows (ex, which bus have thatstation in their orders)
10:47:17 <MNIM> Sounds interesting!
10:47:20 <Rubidium> I thought parent is mostly null, and only set when it makes sense... i.e. when there is a real parent relation: should be closed if parent is closed (except when pinned)
10:48:21 <vpelletier> Rubidium: I didn't check if it's set yet :)
10:48:37 <Rubidium> parent_cls is a 'sentinel' for 'no (real) parent'
10:48:41 <vpelletier> I started reading code inside window.cpp, and about initial window placement only :)
10:48:47 <vpelletier> aha
10:48:48 <Rubidium> parent_cls 0 that is
10:49:31 <vpelletier> now that you mention it, parent is not accessed in this method, only parent_cls
10:49:41 <Alberth> vpelletier: you can open windows in several different ways, so parents may be less useful
10:55:56 <vpelletier> btw, now this code looks suspicious to me: FindWindowById(desc->parent_cls, window_number)
10:56:20 <vpelletier> window_number is supposed to be the new window id, so why are we looking it up with its parent's class ?
10:56:31 <appe> good morning
10:57:16 <Rubidium> because window numbers are usually indices, such a vehicle, town, industry, depot, station, ... indices
10:57:43 <Rubidium> in that case the parent ought to have the same index, and as such the same window number
10:57:52 <vpelletier> ok, so all windows related to a vehicle, ... has same indice ?
10:57:56 <vpelletier> ok
10:57:56 <Rubidium> or in cases where indices are not used, they're 0 and it's fine
10:58:03 <vpelletier> I see
10:58:59 <appe> i have something for you
11:00:03 <vpelletier> I start understanding why window placement is the way it is :)
11:00:18 <vpelletier> indeed, parent is NULL in my test cases
11:00:29 <vpelletier> ie, new_window->parent
11:01:34 <appe> my girlfriend works with the onboard customer service on the DB regio (arriva) trains here in sweden

14:00:57 *** theos has joined #openttd
14:01:05 <xmirakulix> I use Lion too, works fine here
14:02:13 <Rubidium> that's a bit the problem with Mac OS X; for half it magically works, for the other half it magically doesn't work (in case of OpenTTD)
14:02:55 <xmirakulix> any clues to why that is? what doesn't work if it doesn't?
14:03:26 <xmirakulix> k-man_: what hardware do you use?
14:04:54 <Rubidium> xmirakulix: lots of things, most interesting might be the fact that the API claims something is supported, but when you actually use it, it isn't supported. However... no errors are returned so from the point of view of OpenTTD everything works, whereas in reality it just doesn't work

14:13:11 <Alberth> it's summer
14:13:29 <TrueBrain> :D

14:21:43 <xmirakulix> k-man_: so it's most likely an nvidia graphics card, as in my iMac it's an ati
14:22:41 <k-man_> xmirakulix, oh I'm not sure
14:22:49 <xmirakulix> k-man_: is it a very recent model with two graphics cards?
14:22:59 <k-man_> NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB
14:24:36 <xmirakulix> no external display attached, I assume?
14:24:41 <k-man_> no
14:24:51 <xmirakulix> is it black in windowed and in fullscreen mode?
14:25:16 <k-man_> how do I start it in windowed mode?
14:25:24 <k-man_> I only tested fullscreen so far
14:26:00 <Eddi|zuHause> press alt+enter
14:26:03 <xmirakulix> try hitting cmd+enter
14:26:18 *** Hyronymus has joined #openttd
14:27:06 <xmirakulix> Its' cmd+enter on osx
14:27:35 <Eddi|zuHause> whatever
14:27:41 <k-man_> no, it just beeps at me
14:28:20 <Terkhen> edit openttd.cfg and set fullscreen to false
14:28:23 <xmirakulix> you could edit your opened.cfg
14:28:23 <Eddi|zuHause> you can also edit the config file
14:28:31 <Terkhen> triple :P
14:28:33 <xmirakulix> :)
14:28:45 <xmirakulix> set fullscreen to false
14:29:29 <k-man_> err... where is that file?
14:29:42 <Terkhen> I don't know where is that on osx, check the readme
14:29:45 <xmirakulix> In your Documents/OpenTTD
14:30:31 <k-man_> ah! that solved it
14:30:34 <k-man_> thanks guys
14:30:49 *** Chris_Booth has joined #openttd
14:31:15 <xmirakulix> glad to help, have fun
14:31:28 <k-man_> thanks :)
14:32:45 <Eddi|zuHause> it's funny that OSX with a reduced set of supported hardware has more problems with hardware support :p
14:33:53 <Chris_Booth> Eddi|zuHause: that is very ironic
14:36:34 <k-man_> I think full screen apps have really had the spanner put in the works by apple since the release of lion, because prior to that, I think it was tricky to do full screen apps, but now apple provides an api
14:37:04 <k-man_> and I suspect in the process broke the old method of megazoom that was used before - of course this is just my hypothetical guess. I could be way off

15:21:02 <ZirconiumX> Hello everyone (or two)
15:21:38 <Terkhen> hi ZirconiumX
15:21:46 *** valhallasw has joined #openttd
15:21:50 <ZirconiumX> Hello Terkhen.
15:23:49 * ZirconiumX is annoyed with GCC
15:24:33 <ZirconiumX> I've had an error I've _never_ had before...
15:24:44 <Alberth> Intel also has a compiler :)
15:24:51 <ZirconiumX> I can't use icc
15:25:03 <ZirconiumX> I don't have an Intel Processor
15:25:08 <ZirconiumX> (PowerPC)
15:25:21 <Eddi|zuHause> well, if you're making errors you made before, you're definitely going towards being stupid
15:25:48 <Eddi|zuHause> in so far, new errors are not bad per se:)
15:26:43 * Alberth prefers old errors that I know how to solve :p
15:26:53 <ZirconiumX>
15:27:09 <ZirconiumX> I'd give you the source - but its a bit big...
15:27:29 <Alberth> nice one :)
15:27:31 <ZirconiumX> I think the problem area is the FEN-Parser
15:27:44 <Alberth> tried rebuilding all from scratch?
15:28:01 <ZirconiumX> /usr/bin/gcc-4.0 -x c++ -arch ppc -pipe -fno-asm -Wno-trigraphs -fasm-blocks -gused -O0 -pg -fpermissive -Wreturn-type -Wnon-virtual-dtor -Weffc++ -Woverloaded-virtual -Wformat -Wmissing-braces -Wparentheses -Wswitch -Wunused-function -Wunused-label -Wunused-parameter -Wunused-variable -Wunused-value -Wuninitialized -Wunknown-pragmas -pedantic -Wshadow -W
15:28:31 * Alberth has 4.6.1
15:29:09 * ZirconiumX can only use 4.0 cos it's the only one that's avaliable fo his ancient OS (10.4)

15:29:55 <ZirconiumX> ?me apologies for not using pastebin
15:30:19 * ZirconiumX apologises for not using a pastebin
15:30:46 <Alberth> <-- it's known
15:31:32 <ZirconiumX> I've seen that - I think the problem is the -fprofile-use
15:31:47 <ZirconiumX>
15:32:05 <ZirconiumX> If anyone is interested - ^ is the build script
15:32:13 <ZirconiumX> complete with 32 errors
15:32:34 <ZirconiumX> s/32 errors/34 warnings/
15:33:56 <ZirconiumX> so - what to do...
15:35:26 <ZirconiumX>
15:35:30 <ZirconiumX> is source
15:35:45 <PeanutHorst> ZirconiumX: 4.0? update that shit; compile a new toolchain if you have to
15:36:06 <PeanutHorst> compiling a newer gcc on tiger is far from impossible
15:36:10 <PeanutHorst> i've done it myself
15:36:36 <ZirconiumX> Can't. Dad has admin rights and has blocked downloads. Simple as.
15:36:50 <PeanutHorst> also, high-five for having a PowerPC, mine are all still in service :)
15:37:32 <ZirconiumX> @PeanutHorst Isn't it ironic that I have never seen a PC with a PPC chip

15:38:29 <ZirconiumX> Performace Optimization With Enhanced RISC - Performance Computing
15:42:10 <ZirconiumX> the only problem with ppc chips is that when you push past the 3 ghz barrier - the computer gets *very* hot
15:43:46 *** xmirakulix has quit IRC
15:44:12 *** sla_ro|master has joined #openttd
15:45:01 <PeanutHorst> ZirconiumX: actually, that was only a technological limitation of the G5
15:45:06 <PeanutHorst> IBM wasn't able to scale them that far
15:45:25 <PeanutHorst> the G4s can overclock decently, but they were never pushed to that high a clock rate
15:45:52 <ZirconiumX> Imagine if Apple hadn't moved to Intel.
15:46:00 <ZirconiumX> Imac G6
15:46:11 <PeanutHorst> I'd imagine if you used a newer (say 65nm) process to make the G5, you'd be able to get to 4GHz easily without massive heat dissipation problems
15:46:21 <PeanutHorst> also have you ever seen a PPC chip, btw?
15:46:35 <PeanutHorst> as in, the bare chip
15:46:38 <ZirconiumX> Oh - the G5 had the infamous problem with its capacitors
15:46:44 <PeanutHorst> only the iMac.
15:46:48 <ZirconiumX> not personally
15:46:50 <PeanutHorst> the Power Macintosh G5 was unaffected.
15:46:56 <ZirconiumX> ah
15:46:58 <PeanutHorst> ok, well, the PPC is a very small chip physically
15:47:41 <PeanutHorst> and it doesn't have a thermal dissipation surface like, say, the tuatalin, or p4, or any of the later intel chips - it's just bare glass which is mounted to the heatsink using a solid thermal pad, been that way since the 603
15:48:07 <PeanutHorst> so the chip carrier doesn't dissipate heat as effectively as a comparable intel offering either.
15:48:53 * Rubidium wants back to the time when Apple didn't support Intel CPUs
15:49:00 <PeanutHorst> you and me both
15:49:13 <PeanutHorst> I grew up in the time where 68k was still a common-ish sight
15:49:14 *** ZirconiumX has quit IRC
15:49:29 <Rubidium> *so* much less "portability" issues
15:49:36 <PeanutHorst> there was an LC575 stowed away even when I was in high school, I managed to repair it (needed the RAM reseated, that was it)
15:50:06 <PeanutHorst> The Apple I grew up with ... was not friggin' fruit-coloured
15:50:10 <PeanutHorst> it was sensible
15:50:22 <PeanutHorst> and powerful, but restrained. elegant.
15:50:42 <PeanutHorst> and it was not basically powered by the souls of a million intel marketing drones.
15:51:50 <z-MaTRiX> hey-ho
15:52:08 <PeanutHorst> hi!
15:54:09 *** Brianetta has quit IRC
15:55:17 <b_jonas> the pentium 2 were also not dissipating much heat, though they were quite large in size
15:58:12 <PeanutHorst> true
15:58:16 <PeanutHorst> though the SECC helped with that
16:13:20 <z-MaTRiX> whatz up?
16:14:15 <z-MaTRiX> i prefer AMD they are the cool dudes

17:09:16 *** Biolunar has joined #openttd
17:09:25 <frosch123> don't put signals behind junctions
17:10:12 <frosch123> and restrict the number of platform a train can reach from on entry/exit
17:10:16 <b_jonas> yep, it does look like a bit too many signals to me as well given that it's path signals
17:10:33 <frosch123> you do not want a train to drive completely accross the junction to block all lines
17:12:27 <appe> ah, ok
17:13:10 *** Neon has joined #openttd
17:14:56 <b_jonas> hmm, these oil rigs have quite high production despite that I don't transport from them yet
17:15:06 <b_jonas> and they've been standing their unused for decades
17:15:13 <michi_cc> Eddi|zuHause: is a seriously sexy pic :) Even if I still think longer wagons would be even better.
17:15:30 <b_jonas> I'll have to start an expensive oil train network, but should it use the refinery at north or at south?
17:16:53 <Eddi|zuHause> michi_cc: the later wagons will be a bit longer than that

17:18:56 <b_jonas> how can those wagons even take turns?
17:19:31 <Hirundo> Are there (feature creep alert!) [plans for] separate sprites for slopes?
17:19:59 <Eddi|zuHause> Hirundo: not currently, but might be possible. but i think it's not actually needed

17:56:51 <b_jonas> hmm, for the oil network I'll have to learn some about pbs junctions
17:57:40 <b_jonas> I'll need a double mainline, and a tee junction off it for each oil rig
17:58:39 <Eddi|zuHause> use transfer stations instead
18:01:31 <b_jonas> transfer stations? hmm, I'm not sure I really like those
18:03:07 <b_jonas> I actually have a double line passenger train with tee junctions here, but I'm not sure how good it is.
18:07:42 <b_jonas> still, interesting idea. I'll consider transfer stations.
18:08:04 <__ln__> why are RE trains "Preisauskunft nicht möglich" in the search, and how does one approximate a price?
18:09:00 <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: no idea, usually that happens only for non-DB trains
18:10:06 <appe> there is something i dont get with the ecs grf
18:10:12 <appe> what kind of buildings accept petrol?
18:10:23 <Eddi|zuHause> appe: TTRS fuel stations
18:10:27 <appe> i cant seem to find consistency in how big or central a town needs to be.
18:10:29 <__ln__> question #2: if i have a ICE+RE ticket, can i use an earlier RE than printed on the ticket, if i'm early?
18:11:01 <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: only if you order a ticket without exact train binding
18:11:28 <Eddi|zuHause> (those are usually more expensive)
18:11:43 <appe> Eddi|zuHause: what's that?
18:11:52 <__ln__> i see
18:12:00 <Eddi|zuHause> appe: either you need the TTRS grf, or the ECS Houses grf
18:12:49 <__ln__> i bought a ticket with ~40 minute change time now, i think the default suggested 8 minutes is *a bit* tight on Berlin Hbf.
18:14:06 <Eddi|zuHause> that might be true ;)

18:20:11 <appe> aha!
18:23:02 *** HerzogDeXtEr has quit IRC
18:28:20 <michi_cc> __ln__: Nahverkehr never has train binding, so taking an earlier RE is fine.
18:30:55 <__ln__> thanks, i'll try that then
18:30:57 <appe> i worked it out
18:30:59 <appe> Eddi|zuHause: thank you
18:31:05 <appe> Eddi|zuHause: i have never used the ?-tool before. :)
18:32:52 <appe> by the way
18:32:59 <appe> aint there no grf for headquarter houses?
18:33:03 <appe> should be :(
18:40:21 <Eddi|zuHause> there certainly are
18:41:36 *** Devroush has joined #openttd
18:50:50 <Eddi|zuHause> so... now we have useful wagons as well ;)
18:51:12 <Eddi|zuHause> i mean ones that can actually load stuff :)

18:57:13 *** Devroush has quit IRC
18:58:29 <frosch123> [20:11] <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: only if you order a ticket without exact train binding <- afaik that only applies to ICE and IC, not RB/RE

18:59:18 <frosch123> ah, michi said that already :)
18:59:24 <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: might be, never actually tried that
19:21:28 <michi_cc> Eddi|zuHause: Any special reason the generate script still outputs callback_flags? As far as I can see, it's all "new style" callbacks.
19:21:59 <Eddi|zuHause> michi_cc: no reason, just have forgotten to remove it

20:20:51 <Elukka> you could set it to full load any cargo

20:45:36 *** Chris_Booth has joined #openttd
20:46:41 <b_jonas> the new diagonal dynamite and landscaping tools are nice, but could we also have diagonal plant trees and diagonal rail conversion?
20:47:10 <frosch123> rail conversion would be more useful if it would follow the track like signals
20:48:43 <TWerkhoven[l]> is ther any point in diagonal treeplanting? you cannot use the other half of the tile for anything but trees anyway
20:50:49 <z-MaTRiX> and i wanted to bring water from the ocean to the city and sell it as ddrinking water ;<
20:52:19 <Terkhen> I had a patch for diagonal rail conversion but ^
20:52:48 <z-MaTRiX> how about a patch for gridless openttd ?
20:52:51 <z-MaTRiX> :)
20:53:04 <Eddi|zuHause> that exists already
20:53:12 <Eddi|zuHause> try opengfx+landscape grf
20:53:23 <z-MaTRiX> i mean floatingpoint orientations
20:53:35 <z-MaTRiX> curved tracks
20:53:38 <Eddi|zuHause> that exists also, try TTT :)
20:53:44 <z-MaTRiX> yeah
20:54:21 <b_jonas> curved tracks that are somewhere in the middle between TTD and Locomotion could make sense, but that would change the entire game
20:54:32 <b_jonas> and it would still use grids
20:54:37 <b_jonas> also, you'd need diagonal bridges first
20:54:43 <b_jonas> which is not easy
20:54:49 <z-MaTRiX> too bad its not 3d
20:55:02 <b_jonas> Locomotion *is* 3d. that's the main problem
20:55:24 <z-MaTRiX> it would be fun rotating everything anyway and having first person view
20:55:44 <FHerne> What's the problem with diagonal bridges?
20:55:58 <z-MaTRiX> hehe
20:56:05 <z-MaTRiX> and diagonal tunnels?
20:56:21 <Prof_Frink> The Great Lord Chris deemed them unnecessary.
20:56:44 <z-MaTRiX> but...
20:57:16 <z-MaTRiX> without grid land construction with excabators would be a whole new world <;
20:58:24 *** pugi has quit IRC

21:04:15 *** devilsadvocate has quit IRC
21:04:29 <MNIM> however, time shortening is simply a requirement for making it playable
21:04:34 <z-MaTRiX> well
21:04:59 <z-MaTRiX> i have tested the physics
21:06:39 <z-MaTRiX> built a monorail line downhill to another company's station, parked an engine at the end, then driven many engines at 305kmh into it, no damamge at all
21:07:49 <z-MaTRiX> i was expecting some overflow to the station
21:09:17 <b_jonas> that's because the trains start to break in advance

21:16:43 <z-MaTRiX> there was another company's train in the station
21:16:59 <z-MaTRiX> i expected it to be destroyed
21:19:14 <z-MaTRiX> btw ther ewas a bug in original ttd's collision detection that allowed the trains to be taken out
21:21:27 *** Chris_Booth has quit IRC
21:21:55 <Eddi|zuHause> you can never destroy other companies' property
21:22:50 <z-MaTRiX> :)
21:22:57 <b_jonas> it seems that town authorities hate demolishing trees more than demolishing houses
21:23:03 <z-MaTRiX> is this implemented as a new feature?
21:23:50 <b_jonas> "gas station"?
21:23:52 <z-MaTRiX> b_jonas<< yes "save the trees, eat beavers !"
21:23:54 <b_jonas> what does that do?
21:24:07 <b_jonas> hmm, it's from the Japanese buildings set
21:24:27 <Eddi|zuHause> it probably accepts petrol when playing with ECS
21:24:35 <Eddi|zuHause> or FIRS
21:27:14 <b_jonas> I see
21:28:55 <Prof_Frink> Eddi|zuHause: Except road vehicles.
21:29:27 <Eddi|zuHause> yeah, i think that's stupid as well
21:30:20 <Eddi|zuHause> the train and RV should both just break down, ratings drop, and then everybody goes on their way
21:30:20 *** FHerne has left #openttd
21:30:43 <Eddi|zuHause> way less headaches involved
21:30:47 *** vpelletier has quit IRC
21:31:08 <supermop> there should be collisions that are not total write offs
21:32:10 <Yexo> <z-MaTRiX> i expected it to be destroyed <- that bug has been fixed quite some time ago
21:33:28 <z-MaTRiX> :)
21:34:45 <appe> hm
21:35:16 <appe> in the esc industry packs, i get to put passengers on the oil rigs
21:35:32 <appe> i guess that means more passengers to the rig equals more oil to be collected?
21:35:57 *** DDR has joined #openttd
21:36:08 <appe> ah, never mind
21:36:11 <z-MaTRiX> i believe its related to how much oil is taken from it
21:36:17 <b_jonas> I think openttd originally started without the strange routing bugs of openttd, such as diagonal rails on the same tile counting connected, depot counted as if it has an exit on the back side, etc
21:36:37 <b_jonas> the signals worked in openttd correctly from start
21:36:47 <appe> clicking the upper part made it show the what's-waiting window, and clicking the lower part made it show the industry window
21:36:57 <appe> and it seems z-MaTRiX is correct
21:36:57 <appe> neat.
21:38:02 <Eddi|zuHause> b_jonas: no, all those bugs were actually included in openttd, and fixed over time
21:38:53 <z-MaTRiX> we want them baack :)
21:39:46 <z-MaTRiX> the water bug looks 1337
21:40:00 <z-MaTRiX> or pr0
21:44:27 *** DayDreamer has quit IRC
21:46:12 <appe> jesus christ what an expansion
21:46:23 <appe> added a ten-ish boats with passengers to the rig
21:46:40 *** KouDy has quit IRC
21:46:44 <appe> with this kind of increase, i really need a passenger relay system
21:49:25 <b_jonas> Eddi|zuHause: I see
