IRC logs for #openttd on OFTC at 2013-02-13
00:00:27 * Supercheese sets all his offsets manually
00:04:31 * Eddi|zuHause scripts all offsets
00:06:05 *** Celestar has quit IRC
00:10:28 *** tycoondemon has quit IRC
00:10:44 *** HerzogDeXtEr1 has quit IRC
00:12:46 * FLHerne randomly picks offsets until they work :-(
00:13:04 <FLHerne> I should really try figuring them out sometime :P
00:22:07 <Eddi|zuHause> the key is having good templates
00:22:32 * Supercheese often doesn't use templates
00:24:45 <Bad_Brett> yep... especially if you're doing complex stuff
00:25:34 *** kormer has joined #openttd
00:26:58 <Bad_Brett> for example, have fun splitting up the sprites in animations such as this one:
00:27:18 <Supercheese> I'd just make that all one big animation
00:27:28 <Supercheese> although it might span multiple tiles, which would be a pain
00:27:44 <Bad_Brett> that might cause glitches though
00:28:15 <Supercheese> if it ended up needing to be a 2x2 object...... blarg, yeah
00:28:28 <Supercheese> I would not look forward to chopping those sprites up @_@
00:29:00 <Bad_Brett> exactly... that's you write a simple script and let the computer do the work instead of you :)
00:29:04 <Bad_Brett> *why
00:30:03 <FLHerne> Bad_Brett: Are you planning to put that in OTTD!? :o
00:30:18 <Bad_Brett> you bet
00:31:08 <Bad_Brett> i got inspired while watching Whale Wars :D
00:31:50 <FLHerne> But it looks ACTUALLY REALISTIC! And not pixelated or at a strange angle! And it's a WHALE!
00:32:18 * FLHerne is quite startled by realistic-looking OTTD
00:34:02 <Bad_Brett> it looks quite nice in-game
00:35:44 <FLHerne> So do all your disturbingly convincing spritey things :-)
00:36:10 <Bad_Brett> :D
00:36:12 <Supercheese> like that conestoga wagon... :D
00:36:28 <Supercheese> good stuff
00:39:07 <Bad_Brett> thanks... i wonder if it will be fun to play with though... i may have to feed the oxen with steroids so they walk a bit faster :P
00:39:39 <Supercheese> 2x 'realistic' speeds should be fine
00:40:00 <Supercheese> some of the eGRVTS horses get a bit silly though, running around approaching 20 mph :P
00:40:43 <Bad_Brett> :D
00:41:57 <Supercheese> the Wells Fargo coach must have been REALLY behind schedule to approach those speeds ;)
00:42:12 <Bad_Brett> haha

00:43:41 *** tycoondemon has joined #openttd
00:44:28 <Supercheese> "A Conestoga wagon, pulled by a team of six draft horses, averaged 15 miles a day."
00:44:45 <Supercheese> 0.625 mph?
00:44:51 <Bad_Brett> heh
00:44:55 <Supercheese> Average ≠ instantaneous, of course
00:45:39 <Bad_Brett> my idea is to make the rivers quite important
00:45:57 <Supercheese> Steamboats galore
00:45:59 <Supercheese> :D
00:46:03 <Bad_Brett> exactly!
00:46:05 <Bad_Brett> :D
00:46:17 <Eddi|zuHause> cross the USA map with that :p
00:46:29 <kormer> I played a US map starting at 1700 once and it was a blast running ships until 1830
00:46:54 <Bad_Brett> that's great to hear
00:47:09 <Supercheese> The only .grf with ships in the 1700s is the sailing ship grf, no?
00:47:13 <kormer> Yes
00:47:22 <Supercheese> Seems kinda of silly using full-rigged ships on rivers
00:47:27 <Bad_Brett> guess i'll have to try it then
00:47:30 <Supercheese> kind of*
00:47:38 <kormer> Yes, that part wasn't too realistic.
00:47:58 <Bad_Brett> i'm going to set a huge speed penalty on those
00:47:59 <Supercheese> I'm not even sure what 18th-century riverboats would look like
00:48:27 <kormer> There really weren't any, it would have mostly been mule-pulled barge traffic
00:49:01 <Supercheese> "Fifteen miles on the Eerie Canal"... ♭
00:49:08 <kormer> And almost all pre-steamboat mississippi river traffic was one way
00:49:29 <Supercheese> or was it years
00:49:39 <Eddi|zuHause> "Noch 20 Minuten bis Buffalo"
00:50:52 <Eddi|zuHause> there was a movie on TV recently of 1920's berlin, and they had river/canal boats that were pushed venice-style with someone with a long pole on the boat
00:51:21 <Eddi|zuHause> i think 1927
00:51:24 <Bad_Brett> cool
00:51:38 <Supercheese> Oh, venice boats
00:51:44 <Supercheese> what are they caleed, gondolas?
00:51:44 <FLHerne> We have nice punts here in Cambridge, but not big :P
00:51:46 <Supercheese> called*
00:51:53 <Eddi|zuHause> they were much larger boats than in venice
00:54:00 <Eddi|zuHause> <-- i think this is the movie
00:55:14 <Supercheese> I love German, the compounding of adjectives onto nouns eliminates some of the ambiguity we have in English with adjectives
00:56:06 <Supercheese> it also leads to some hilariously long words
00:57:38 <Supercheese> just a few weeks ago, "Big gun debate". Is that a debate about big guns, or a big debate about guns?
00:58:01 <Supercheese> You'd probably compound it in German to eliminate that ambiguity
01:04:43 <Eddi|zuHause> there isn't really a lot of text in the movie :p
01:05:13 <Supercheese> Text written on various things, walls/signs/etc
01:05:40 <Eddi|zuHause> anyway, i'd call it "große Waffendebatte" [big (gun debate)] vs. "Große-Waffen-Debatte" [(big gun) debate]
01:05:50 *** Pikka has quit IRC
01:06:05 <Supercheese> Yep, there's the compounding
01:06:21 <Supercheese> big Gundebate
01:06:34 <Supercheese> big Fruittree
01:07:13 <Supercheese> Hmm, I dunno why we can't theoretically have more compounding in English
01:07:30 <Eddi|zuHause> just do it, let it catch on :)
01:07:43 *** Zuu has quit IRC
01:09:20 <Supercheese> Heh, a tank engine running cab forward
01:09:37 <Supercheese> Tankengine
01:11:30 <Supercheese> Man, lots of men in the film seems to have the stereotypical Hitler-mustache ... :S
01:11:37 <Supercheese> must have been popular
01:11:49 <Supercheese> I dunno if there's a better term for it
01:12:05 <Supercheese> ; it seems
01:14:05 <Supercheese> Wow, so much machinery
01:14:12 <Eddi|zuHause> it was fairly popular, yes. this was before hitlers rise, though
01:16:06 <Supercheese> Horse-drawn garbagetruck?
01:21:22 *** Pikka has joined #openttd
01:28:56 <Eddi|zuHause> what i find interesting is the pre-electrification S-Bahn
01:31:11 <Eddi|zuHause> electric at that time was only the tram and the subway, the S-Bahn was electrified during the 30's
01:33:13 <Eddi|zuHause> the boats come somewhen after the lunch break scenes
01:35:23 <Eddi|zuHause> (the movie roughly follows the course of a day: morning commute, industrial shift start, commercial activities, lunch, afternoon shift, afternoon commute, leasure time, theater/culture, night
01:37:52 <Eddi|zuHause> especially night recordings wre a brand new thing back then...

02:38:11 <Supercheese> I'd rather have vehicles be the only things date-restricted, let everything else be build whenever
02:38:24 <Supercheese> built*
02:40:32 <Supercheese> rail/roadtypes being tied to vehicles, of course
02:44:08 <Supercheese> Where do I go in the code to turn off the date check for station/object availability...
02:47:19 <Supercheese> *available = false; --> *available = true;

07:30:47 <Pikka> ho ho
07:31:02 <Pikka> I knew as soon as I saw oztrans's "testing" grf on bananas that some drama was afoot.
07:31:08 <Supercheese> decidedly
07:31:17 <Supercheese> Simuscape is 110% drama
07:31:28 <peter1138> hmm?
07:31:53 <Pikka>
07:32:15 <Pikka> he's uploading non-grfs to bananas which say "come and get my grfs at simuscape" in the description
07:32:28 *** Twofish has joined #openttd
07:35:25 <planetmaker> when is that guy no drama?
07:35:51 <Supercheese> I say permaban him and be done with it
07:36:21 <Supercheese> but of course that may come off as heavy handed
07:36:33 <planetmaker> not at all, if you want my opinion
07:37:23 <peter1138> if (*name == '!') skip();
07:37:47 <peter1138> the new sorting is awkward for numbered grfs :(
07:38:15 <planetmaker> we have that already, kind of, peter1138. And numbering is better done trailing
07:38:31 <peter1138> i refer to 2cc set
07:38:39 <peter1138> not version numbering
07:38:41 <planetmaker> hm :_)
07:39:06 <Supercheese> Oh damn, can't edit my post at Simuscape
07:39:06 <peter1138> 8/32bpp trains too
07:39:14 <peter1138> Supercheese, lolol
07:39:37 <peter1138> Supercheese, after the furore that oztrans himself caused on tt-forums, that's funny
07:39:55 <planetmaker> hypocrite
07:40:20 <Supercheese> "You cannot edit your posts in this forum"
07:41:11 <Supercheese> Sigh, it's a shame I really enjoy the Canadian/North American grfs, else I would just quit Simuscape entirely and never look back
07:44:01 *** Twofish has left #openttd
07:45:36 <Pikka> of course, it won't even work
07:45:50 <Pikka> people who care about his work will check simuscape for updates anyway
07:46:11 <Pikka> babbies who download everything blindly will just download the dummy grf and not even notice that it doesn't do anything
07:46:16 <Pikka> and no-one else cares
07:46:25 <Supercheese> That is a fairly accurate summary
07:46:48 *** Twofish has joined #openttd
07:47:12 <Supercheese> hahaha, there's only one entry for Simuscape at bugmenot:
07:47:23 <Supercheese> but check the comment :>
07:49:38 <Pikka> <peter1138> 8/32bpp trains too <-- 10CC also D;
07:50:13 <peter1138> i was thinking that, but it's not on bananas yet so i forgot when it came to listing it
07:50:23 <Pikka> :)
07:50:49 <Supercheese> Rename it to "Ten Cee Cee"
07:51:03 <peter1138> hmm, who wrote the build framework that chips uses?
07:51:51 <Ammler> yexo
07:51:59 <Supercheese> Or 1e-5 m³
07:52:01 <Ammler> and pm
07:52:12 <__ln__> good fortnightmorning
07:52:18 <peter1138> cos it includes license information, but no copyright information
07:52:23 <peter1138> which is a little odd
07:52:51 <peter1138> anyway, as a tool, its licence doesn't apply to my produced work, right?
07:54:30 <Ammler> you never give up your own rights, if you participate to a gpl project, do you
07:54:45 <peter1138> ?
07:54:48 <Supercheese> Oh good lord, screw this algorithm, took me ten minutes to figure out I was supposed to be iterating backwards and not forwards
07:54:58 <Supercheese> why couldn't it say that up front?
07:55:42 <Ammler> you can still do whatever you like with your own work, the license does just matter for people using your work from chips
07:55:54 <Pikka> that's right, Ammler
07:56:33 <Pikka> unless you've given someone an exclusive licence you can always do whatever you like with your own work
07:57:01 <Pikka> (where "your own work" means "work you own the copyright to", not necessarily "what you've worked on")
07:57:11 <__ln__> Ammler: well... GNU projects often require reassigning your copyright to the FSF.
07:57:18 <peter1138> Ammler, none of it is my work
07:57:44 *** DDR_ has joined #openttd
07:57:52 <Ammler> "..doesn't apply to my produced work"
07:58:00 <peter1138> Ammler, oh you refer to my chips fixes...
07:58:16 <peter1138> no, i'm talking about something from scratch that uses the the Makefiles
07:58:19 <peter1138> the the the
07:58:32 <Ammler> well, the makefile framework is not seen as tool as it is part of the source
07:58:47 <Ammler> so if you use it you need to use the same license
07:59:08 <Ammler> or ask the author for permission to relicense
07:59:27 <Ammler> (might not be an issue either)
07:59:36 <planetmaker> the makefile framework would need to be applied to each NewGRF individually and is usually part of its source... just like OpenTTD's makefile
07:59:59 <peter1138> right, good that i checked then :p
08:00:08 <peter1138> hmm
08:00:12 <peter1138> i wonder about the waf license
08:00:21 <planetmaker> you need a special license? :D
08:03:09 <peter1138> no
08:03:12 <peter1138> not really
08:03:19 <peter1138> i should code it all first
08:03:21 <Ammler> __ln__: yes that you do but you can still "sell" your part with another license
08:03:22 <planetmaker> honestly, I've been thinking of licensing it as CC-BY. But... meh. I can do that on an individual basis except some additional scripts
08:04:11 *** DDR has quit IRC
08:04:27 <planetmaker> Ammler, not sure you can do that, if you gave away your copyright
08:04:47 <Ammler> why should you give away your copyrights?
08:04:50 <peter1138> planetmaker, as i'm fed up with licensing bullshit in our little clique, i'd've gone with BSD or something
08:04:59 <__ln__> Ammler: not really, if you have assigned the copyright to someone else. (note that assigning copyright to someone else is not required with GPL in general)
08:05:20 <planetmaker> might be better, yes, peter1138. Especially for a Makefile framework
08:05:23 <DDR_> I've got some stuff dual-licenced. It can work.
08:05:35 *** KouDy has joined #openttd
08:05:37 <planetmaker> I might actually change that... couldn't be arsed so far, though
08:05:42 <planetmaker> or the wtf-license
08:05:59 <DDR_> Bless the wtfpl
08:06:03 <peter1138> i mean for stuff i produced. if i ever did.
08:06:12 <DDR_> It's a wonderfully simple licence. :)
08:06:19 <Pikka> I've avoided any kind of makefile so far
08:06:30 <Ammler> imo, gpl is fine, it kinda forces people to use also gpl
08:06:32 <planetmaker> batch files, Pikka ?
08:06:45 <Pikka> but I have to say, doing industries... yuck, I see the attraction of not having one wall o' code :)
08:06:56 <__ln__> Ammler: because some projects -- e.g. the GNU project -- wants to avoid the trouble of having a thousand copyright holders, whose permission is required for any licensing changes or whatever. and because that way the FSF could theoretically defend its (formerly your) copyright in court.
08:07:00 <peter1138> DDR_, not too keen on that
08:07:04 <DDR_> I also like the wtfpl(beer) licence. It's like the wtfpl licence, except that it states that if you found my stuff useful and you're in the area you should consider buying me a beer.
08:07:19 <planetmaker> ^^
08:07:40 <peter1138> Ammler, that's the bit i don't want to do :)
08:08:14 <Ammler> peter1138: publish the source?
08:09:15 <Ammler> as said, pm might make a exception for you, but IMO, it is fine the publishd framework is gpl
08:10:02 *** DDR_ has quit IRC
08:10:36 <Supercheese> Ahh, commented out the checks for date restrictions on objects & stations, now I can build them whenever
08:11:29 <peter1138> Ammler, you can't really make an exception to a more-open license for one person
08:11:58 <planetmaker> I can. But sure enough it's then kinda pointless to keep the more restrictive one ;-)
08:12:06 <peter1138> quite
08:12:29 <planetmaker> But if it needs a makefile for one project, it can be cut down quite severely. It's rather versatile right now
08:12:37 *** Tvel has joined #openttd
08:12:40 <Ammler> well, "more-open" is also pov issue
08:13:10 <planetmaker> Ammler, less restrictions is surely more open :-) Also open to the permission to close it completely :-)
08:14:10 <Ammler> hehe, so basically you consider closing the source as more open :-)
08:14:52 <planetmaker> Ammler, no. But giving permission for another person to use it in closed-source is definitely more freedom (for that person) than forcing that person to be open-source
08:15:15 <Ammler> as said, I would not call that more open
08:17:36 <planetmaker> actually the only restriction which I want on my makefile is "you need to allow people to make modifications or derivatives of your NewGRF if you use this makefile framework"
08:18:08 <Ammler> where gpl is perfect for
08:18:15 <planetmaker> thus probably CC-SA
08:19:00 <planetmaker> without -BY -NC and -ND
08:19:10 <Ammler> you know someone who would have used your framwork but didn't because of the license?
08:19:59 <planetmaker> not exactly. But then, it's still not 100% easy to use. Needs a linux-like environment... and configuration
08:20:13 <planetmaker> there's no setup script (yet)
08:20:51 <Supercheese> Gotta love some .grf licenses: "Modifications to this graphics file are not permitted, nor is content extraction, without the explicit permission of the author."
08:20:57 <planetmaker> and it needs a version which deals with pure NML. without the fancy gcc / gimp / ... overhead
08:21:06 <Supercheese> grfcodec -d -- whoops, violated license
08:21:23 <planetmaker> yup
08:21:37 <planetmaker> that's usual for commercial bullshit
08:22:03 <Supercheese> I think I violated the license even before I loaded it in-game :S
08:22:25 <Supercheese> anyway, time to sleep
08:22:30 <planetmaker> sleep well :-)
08:22:40 <peter1138> content extraction eh?
08:22:52 <Supercheese> valete omnes
08:22:55 <planetmaker> you've the license for any sleep type you want, though ;-) without requiring anyone's permission
08:22:59 *** Supercheese has quit IRC
08:23:06 <peter1138> does the game opening it count as content extraction?

09:06:43 <planetmaker> technically correct. socially it would count as trolling

09:33:01 <Pikka> hallo mr andrew dans le nord
09:33:17 <Eddi|zuHause> <Ammler> well, the makefile framework is not seen as tool as it is part of the source <-- i don't think this is true, because what matters is what is part of the _binary_ that you distribute
09:34:46 <andythenorth> can we haz not dramaz?
09:35:47 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, would it be ok to distribute OpenTTD w/o its makefile, config.lib and configure scripts?
09:36:40 <Pikka> that's what I said, andy

09:41:15 <andythenorth> it's not actually funny
09:41:17 <andythenorth> at all
09:41:19 <andythenorth> it just amuses me

09:42:03 <Pikka> your ships, your rules
09:42:55 <andythenorth> maybe I should rename it to fit the pattern
09:43:01 <Pikka> my coal mine just about works :) then I will have one working industry chain
09:43:05 <andythenorth> I think the joke has outlived its life
09:43:08 <Pikka> coal mine -> powerstation
09:43:12 <andythenorth> winner
09:43:13 <Pikka> not much of a chain
09:43:19 <andythenorth> nearly as good as original TTD
09:44:06 <andythenorth> this one's nice
09:44:09 <andythenorth> maybe I call it that
09:44:23 <Pikka> star point lighthouse tanker?
09:44:32 <andythenorth> - lighthouse
09:44:47 <Pikka> starpoint?
09:45:05 <Pikka> starp oint
09:46:10 <andythenorth> hah found a better oen

09:47:36 <peter1138> god damn evolution sucks these days
09:47:40 <peter1138> (the email client)
09:47:43 <peter1138> it just crashed
09:47:44 <peter1138> fair enough
09:47:59 <peter1138> started it again and it no longer knows about email for this month :S
09:48:45 <andythenorth> mail is over-rated anyway
09:48:55 <peter1138> yers
09:49:04 <andythenorth> you don't miss much
09:49:10 <andythenorth> I have stopped reading email
09:50:36 <SpComb> as a sysadmin maintaing a mail server, I disagree!
09:50:40 <SpComb> it's highly important
09:50:59 <peter1138> my colleagues get annoyed when i don't read email
09:51:12 <SpComb> you wouldn't replace a sysadmin with bits in a google cloud, would you :<
09:53:44 <andythenorth> peter1138: if it's important, they'll phone you, no?
09:53:55 <peter1138> yes
09:54:23 <peter1138> conversation i just had
09:54:42 <andythenorth> conversation yes
09:54:49 <andythenorth> email is not conversation IT IS SHOUTING
09:54:56 * andythenorth digresses
09:55:14 <andythenorth> I should make some ships
09:55:16 <peter1138> no, the phone call was shouting :p
09:55:21 <andythenorth> that's ok
09:55:25 <peter1138> i haven't seen the email
09:55:27 <peter1138> because it crashed
09:55:38 <andythenorth> phone call shouting is perfectly reasonable behaviour
09:55:38 <peter1138> and is redownloading everything for feb
09:55:51 <andythenorth> I *should* do some work
09:55:57 <andythenorth> although it is my birthday
09:56:12 <peter1138> sounds like a day off
09:56:20 <andythenorth> I don't like days off
09:56:24 <peter1138> weirdo
09:56:35 <andythenorth> had a day off yesterday for the kid's birthday
09:56:49 <andythenorth> was ok I guess
09:56:50 <andythenorth> :)
09:57:58 <andythenorth> Pikka: why do Australians make so many fast catamarans?
09:58:12 <andythenorth> you're excessively enthusiastic about it

10:01:57 <peter1138> "my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard"
10:01:58 <peter1138> wtf?
10:02:06 <andythenorth> great song
10:13:40 *** Devroush724 has joined #openttd
10:15:25 <Pikka> andythenorth, because we have a lot of water I suppose? a lot of long thin routes.
10:16:15 *** Devroush has quit IRC
10:16:28 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: a) openttd binaries ARE distributed without these files, and b) openttd's GPL license states (afair) the source code version must include build scripts etc., but it does not say that these buildscripts must be under the same license
10:16:55 *** Devroush has joined #openttd
10:18:02 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, b) doesn't add up. Or I license every loc under a different license
10:18:09 <peter1138> who was talking about openttd?
10:18:58 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: that honestly depends on how intertwined the two parts are
10:19:30 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: e.g. what if you put the sourcecode of a library that you "link to" into the source repo?
10:20:43 <planetmaker> "For an executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable." from the license
10:21:18 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: the fact that many projects use the newgrf-makefile independently supports the theory that it's a "tool" that is just "bundled" with the source, so it doesn't have to be the same license
10:21:41 *** Devroush724 has quit IRC
10:22:04 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, it doesn't. without it you're loosing essential parts which are needed to build the newgrfs
10:22:09 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: you failed to quote the exception where you don't need to include the compiler etc.
10:22:12 <planetmaker> of course you could organize it differently
10:22:45 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, the compiler is nmlc. But the makefile surely is no compiler but a build script which contains the config to build that particular NewGRF
10:23:00 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: so where do you draw the line?
10:23:22 <Eddi|zuHause> if i have "makefile bundled with nmlc", that bundle is surely the compiler
10:24:31 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, the line is where information are added which are specific. The newgrf-makefile framework as-is, does NOT work without adapting it to every single newgrf it is used with
10:25:01 <planetmaker> a compiler needs no such configuration. The configuration (parameter, call sequence...) that's part of the build scripts. Which such are part of the source.
10:25:18 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: ao the configfile for the makefile is part of the project source, but not the makefile-framework
10:28:51 <planetmaker> That *might* work. If you could really separate the config file from the rest. Which you can't sensibly do in this case. But it's not practical either as there's no defined interface (yet?)
10:31:06 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: but the argument is backwards, you argue with the GPL clause that you have to include the build scripts, but if i release a grf under a separate license which does not make that requirement, i can consider the grf and the makefile separately licensed bundles
10:31:36 <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: from a closed-source bundle i can "link to" an open source bundle, just not the other way around
10:32:07 <andythenorth> what was the question?
10:32:26 <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: whether using the makefile forces your project to GPL
10:33:09 <andythenorth> there's almost no case law
10:33:14 <andythenorth> so definitive answer hard
10:33:39 *** pjpe has joined #openttd
10:33:51 <Eddi|zuHause> which is my point, the initial answer was a "definitive yes", and i find that disputable
10:33:58 <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: CETS python build - clearly e
10:34:00 <andythenorth> yes
10:34:12 <andythenorth> something that uses makefile for convenience
10:34:22 <andythenorth> probably
10:34:26 <andythenorth> but not clear cut
10:35:19 <andythenorth> the makefile framework is a separate project
10:35:24 <andythenorth> the grf is the output from it
10:35:34 <andythenorth> GPL does not attach to output
10:35:43 <Eddi|zuHause> we discussed the CETS build script previously, the answer there was "yes, because significant parts of the script end up in the final grf"
10:36:56 <andythenorth> is the makefile part of the program, or is it a generic tool, from which the program is output?
10:37:04 <Eddi|zuHause> it's similar to glibc ends up in gcc-compiled programs, so they had to attach a special exception clause for that
10:38:02 <Eddi|zuHause> yes, that is the question i posed
10:38:39 *** pjpe has quit IRC
10:40:00 <andythenorth> if it's a generic tool, it doesn't matter if it's GPL or not
10:40:10 <andythenorth> except in the specific question of distribution

11:48:38 <peter1138> seems everyone's ignored it so far
11:49:01 <planetmaker> yes, wrong forum section ;-)
11:49:11 <andythenorth> herp, does anyone give a fuck if it's advertising or not?
11:49:19 <Eddi|zuHause> it got more (negative) attention on the german forum
11:49:22 <andythenorth> the thing that I find sad is that it breaks bananas for end user
11:49:34 <andythenorth> 'it' = zero-content grfs
11:49:35 <planetmaker> yes. And that imho makes it require action
11:49:42 <peter1138> we're not talking about that :p
11:49:47 <planetmaker> :-)
11:49:57 <andythenorth> I am now talking abotu that again
11:50:04 <andythenorth> the deal with bananas is that you click 'get content' and you get content
11:50:09 <andythenorth> in game
11:50:09 <andythenorth> no faff
11:50:12 <andythenorth> no need to open a browser

11:51:24 <Eddi|zuHause> i agree, that this GRF should be removed on "spam/advertising" grounds
11:51:25 <planetmaker> (or so I believe)
11:52:02 *** goodger has joined #openttd
11:52:47 <peter1138> just kick up a load of fuss

11:53:11 <peter1138> i dunno
11:53:26 <peter1138> ignoring seems a good option
11:54:59 <Eddi|zuHause> if they want to advertise, they should pay for it...
11:55:35 <Eddi|zuHause> "normal" bananas users pay for it with the right to publish their contents
11:55:54 <Eddi|zuHause> since they don't publish any content, they should pay through other means

12:22:49 <__ln__> andythenorth: it's part of latin-1
12:23:53 <Eddi|zuHause> how can you serve a nazgul if you can't kill it?
12:24:25 <Pikka> __ln__, I don't think there is
12:24:38 <Pikka> a character named zoe in almost all recent american tv series
12:24:57 <andythenorth> I don't see one in Dora the Explorer
12:24:59 <Pikka> "almost all" is quite a lot.
12:25:09 <Pikka> and almost certainly includes dora the explorer :)
12:25:19 <__ln__> Pikka: Firefly, House of Cards, others.
12:26:38 <Pikka> that's two
12:26:40 <Eddi|zuHause> "almost all" means "the measure of the set of exceptions is zero"
12:26:45 <Pikka> one of which isn't terribly recent ;)
12:26:56 <peter1138> "almost all" means "almost all that __ln__ watches"
12:27:01 <Pikka> also americans remaking house of cards, sounds terrible
12:27:46 <Eddi|zuHause> <andythenorth> do we have the æ char in game? <-- you can provide missing glyphs in your grf
12:29:41 <V453000> peter1138: how far did the idea with a spec for custom junctions @railtypes get?
12:29:45 <V453000> also morning
12:29:49 <peter1138> spec?
12:29:53 <peter1138> it was coded
12:29:55 <peter1138> there's a patch
12:30:15 <V453000> is it usable yet?
12:30:27 *** Snail has joined #openttd
12:30:59 <peter1138> if you apply the patch, probably. i never tested it cos there's no grf for it
12:31:33 <V453000> I intend to make a grf for it
12:31:56 <peter1138> ok
12:36:03 <andythenorth> see, MB is right again
12:36:23 <andythenorth> he usually is, except when he's wrong
12:36:33 <Eddi|zuHause> in which context now?
12:36:44 <Eddi|zuHause> there are like 5 different discussions here in parallel
12:36:52 <Pikka> stranger things have happened
12:36:59 <andythenorth> bananas discussion
12:37:19 <peter1138> let's add 3d models to openttd
12:37:20 <andythenorth> I like MB, he has character :)

12:37:59 <peter1138> cubicles
12:39:10 <V453000> I dont even understand how can any software exist without voxels
12:39:58 <Eddi|zuHause> yes. cubicles it was :p
12:40:12 <andythenorth> openplans
12:40:59 <planetmaker> it breaks for end users MUCH less, if they use the proper grfID for their "advertizement" iGRFs. If properly done, end users won't see them anymore once they have the "full" grf
12:41:26 <planetmaker> So, as done now, it's quite bad
12:41:50 <planetmaker> but as they "just decide" so we may "just decide". Discussion is nothing anyone ever tried
12:42:04 <planetmaker> nor seems interested in. So whatever. Just drama is the interest
12:42:09 <Pikka> I don't see what's wrong with in planetmaker
12:42:13 <Pikka> it's just a grf like any other
12:42:15 <andythenorth> I wouldn't bother with 'us' and 'them' :)
12:42:23 <andythenorth> it's not very useful, in the long run
12:42:27 <planetmaker> Pikka, it spams the NewGRF list of users with double and tripple entries
12:42:33 <andythenorth> there are some silly users who have made some silly grfs
12:42:36 <andythenorth> that much is not new
12:42:42 <planetmaker> If they use the right grfID, then the downloaded full NewGRF will simply be shown instead of the igrf
12:42:53 <Pikka> I don't think that bothers the users who just download and install everything
12:42:54 <planetmaker> thus it's considered a valid "update" to the bananas entry
12:43:10 <planetmaker> I'm not concerned about those
12:43:30 <Pikka> well which "newgrf list" are you concerned about, then?
12:44:41 <planetmaker> Pikka, ingame. For the users which actually get the NewGRFs
12:45:15 <planetmaker> If you got a newer version, then bananas won't give you its version either. IIRC
12:45:53 <andythenorth> I would file it under 'people do silly things'
12:46:01 <andythenorth> unless it's actually breaking savegames
12:46:01 <Pikka> so would I
12:46:51 <andythenorth> "something must be done" <- except not really
12:47:14 <planetmaker> people complain about spam... to *us*
12:47:31 <andythenorth> by email?
12:47:34 <andythenorth> or publicly?
12:47:45 <andythenorth> or by pm?
12:48:10 <planetmaker> in the bug tracker... in the forums...
12:48:24 <andythenorth> so close them as invalid
12:48:25 <V453000> it is breaking savegames obviously, as it uses different IDs
12:48:30 <andythenorth> hmm
12:48:35 <andythenorth> failure demand :P
12:48:44 <andythenorth>
12:49:22 <peter1138> if they used the real grf's grfid then it would break for people who already have the grf but don't want to upgrade to the latest version
12:50:37 <planetmaker> peter1138, it wouldn't. savegames go by md5sum.
12:50:45 *** Elukka has joined #openttd
12:50:46 <Pikka> eh
12:50:50 <peter1138> i wouldn't be able to start a new game with it
12:51:05 <peter1138> because i've gone "upgrade all" which is a fairly common use-case
12:51:19 <planetmaker> peter1138, OpenTTD by default only shows the newgrf with the highest action14 version for a newgrf. So it's easy
12:51:20 <peter1138> and thus the latest is the fake grf, not the real grf
12:51:27 <V453000> the real grf would have to be +1 version
12:51:34 <planetmaker> thus what you describe wouldn't happen
12:51:36 <Eddi|zuHause> <V453000> it is breaking savegames obviously, as it uses different IDs <-- yes, so would you go forward and talk to the GRF author to change it?
12:51:48 <V453000> well yeah you would have to make latest the real one
12:51:53 <peter1138> the real grf doesn't have an action 14 i think
12:52:00 <Pikka> planetmaker, I think part of what oztrans's theory was is that he could use the "informational" grf to tell people when there was a new version of the real grf out
12:52:00 <V453000> Eddi|zuHause: I did actually
12:52:05 <planetmaker> that's the author's fault clearly
12:52:10 <peter1138> planetmaker, it's pre-action 14
12:52:16 <V453000> they dont really care
12:52:36 <V453000> OzTrans I did try the same GRFID initially; but found that having different IDs is better and with less hassles. Even if you have both loaded, they don't bite each other.
12:52:37 <Pikka> the old one was, the one on simutransscape isn't
12:52:45 <planetmaker> that'll be even worse, Pikka ...
12:52:46 <peter1138> yeah, i have the old one
12:52:53 <Pikka> anyway
12:53:03 <peter1138> if they used the same grfid, and i'd done "upgrade all" then it would've removed my choice of the working grf
12:53:31 <V453000> ah that way you mean
12:53:33 <Pikka> all the complaints are like those people who ring up to complain about a tv show that they didn't watch, because their newspaper told them it was filth.
12:53:36 <V453000> well there could be same id for version 1.5
12:53:39 <V453000> not for 1.1
12:53:43 <Pikka> no-one's really bothered, people just like complaining
12:54:12 <andythenorth> Pikka: how dare you. I am morally offended.
12:55:52 <V453000> I think the content should be removed and a rule added to ToS, because this thing does absolutely nothing related to bananas purposes - content availability and also availability for saves with old versions
12:55:57 <V453000> this is just spam
12:56:41 <Pikka> V453000: it's content
12:56:50 <V453000> not really
12:56:53 <Pikka> the fact that it's content that doesn't interest you is neither here nor there
12:56:58 <V453000> it purposedly cant be used in the game
12:57:15 <V453000> it does interest me
12:57:16 <andythenorth> :roll:
12:57:20 <andythenorth> don't add anything to ToS
12:57:23 <Pikka> it can be used in the game
12:57:25 <andythenorth> it's just a non-issue
12:57:29 <Pikka> it just doesn't do much interesting
12:57:30 <andythenorth> it's a valid grf, complies with the spec
12:57:36 <Pikka> just like almost every other grf out there ;)
12:58:13 <V453000> spam
12:58:32 <Pikka> well what exactly would you add to the ToS?
12:58:35 <planetmaker> Pikka, it defies and sabotages the purpose of bananas. Willfully.
12:59:01 <V453000> ^
12:59:05 <andythenorth> yes, but so what
12:59:10 <andythenorth> what harm is done?
12:59:16 <Pikka> it defies and sabotages the purpose of bananas
12:59:29 <Pikka> in the same way as a small, slightly over-ripe grape blocks a major arterial road
12:59:34 <Eddi|zuHause> the "harm" is that "we" have to discuss it
12:59:46 <andythenorth> even worse if we have to rewrite ToS
12:59:54 <andythenorth> and have all contributors accept new terms
12:59:56 <Pikka> let's ban grapes
13:00:02 <andythenorth> loads of BS for zero real gain
13:00:42 <planetmaker> <Eddi|zuHause> the "harm" is that "we" have to discuss it <-- that
13:00:42 <V453000> well, you dont need to rewrite ToS if there is a gentleman agreement that this shit doesnt get created :P
13:00:56 <Pikka> add it to the ToS, quick
13:01:10 *** peter1138 sets mode: +m
13:01:15 <peter1138> no you don't have to discuss it
13:01:20 *** peter1138 sets mode: -m
13:01:25 <Eddi|zuHause> :p
13:01:26 <V453000> I mean seriously, if someone uses a free service like devzone or bananas, they give something back. For devzone open license, for bananas the content. This is only being abused as advertisement space
13:02:09 <V453000> if they so hate bananas to refuse adding real content, let them hate it
13:02:11 <andythenorth> we should modify the WTFPL
13:02:13 <andythenorth>
13:02:20 <Eddi|zuHause> if the ToS already forbids spam, and (some) operators of bananas judge this as spam, then no change of the ToS is needed
13:02:22 <andythenorth> add a second clause. 1) Don't break the law
13:02:24 <V453000> but making such disgusting workarounds like this which dont even technically work well is just wrong to me
13:02:38 <V453000> Eddi|zuHause: :)
13:02:44 <Pikka> what are you going to do about it, V453000?
13:02:46 <Pikka> let it go :)
13:02:58 <V453000> me? I cant do much but I will say my opinion which is what I do
13:03:08 <Eddi|zuHause> MB's argument of "it's a valid NewGRF" does not go very far... SPAM mails are valid e-mails
13:03:20 <V453000> ^
13:05:50 <lugo> so what's wrong with treating it like spam which got through the filter (or gentlemens agreement) and just ignore it?
13:06:13 <andythenorth> nothing
13:06:19 <andythenorth> we just can't seem to agree on that
13:07:33 * Pikka can
13:09:18 <Pikka> the alternative is that bananas becomes a moderated service, which I can't see being good for anyone. and even if it did become that, I don't think this file should be removed. :)
13:10:00 <V453000> not like it wasnt moderated when mistress sac demanded removal of her trees
13:10:09 <Pikka> if we're removing content that doesn't work properly or breaks the game, we can start with "OpenTTD Plus" and then move on to NARS2. ;)
13:10:26 <Pikka> copyright infringements are different
13:11:18 <V453000> she put it there herself?
13:11:32 <V453000> also this isnt breaking the game but spamming bananas
13:11:38 <andythenorth> shrug
13:11:45 * Pikka also
13:11:52 <andythenorth> Pikka pops: 2/3 of Squid Ate FISH
13:12:01 <andythenorth> I need some people who draw next
13:12:03 <V453000> idk how bananas or nars2 breaks the game either but that is off topic :)
13:12:11 <andythenorth> what are they called? 'Artists' or somethign
13:12:15 <Pikka> 2/3 squid can't be wrong
13:12:16 <andythenorth> V453000: draw me some ships?
13:12:32 <andythenorth> Pikka: see what I did? Not loads of ships all same size
13:12:32 <V453000> im actually drawing my own ships andy
13:12:38 <Pikka> I like it
13:12:46 <Pikka> moar sails though
13:13:03 <andythenorth> hmmm
13:13:05 <andythenorth> I'll certainly consider that
13:13:11 <Pikka> psh, you won't
13:13:52 <andythenorth> I considered it
13:13:57 <V453000> behold
13:14:25 <Pikka> those aren't ships
13:14:33 <V453000> oh they are :D
13:15:05 <Pikka> they're railways disguised as water, but they're not ships
13:15:22 <MNIM> andythenorth: I take it you still need to order ID by intro date?
13:15:28 <V453000> aaand these railways can have ships on them
13:15:31 <V453000> train ships anyway
13:15:44 <andythenorth> MNIM?
13:15:51 <MNIM> in SQUID
13:16:03 <andythenorth> you want order by intro date? Just order that in the menu
13:16:14 <andythenorth> I am ordering IDs by 'it looks pleasing to andythenorth'
13:16:25 <MNIM> silly andy
13:16:31 <V453000> andythenorth: you could actually draw some ships for me
13:16:36 <V453000> now we are talking
13:16:42 <andythenorth> ho ho no
13:17:03 <V453000> how surprising!!
13:17:07 <V453000> :(
13:17:08 * V453000 sad
13:22:19 <andythenorth> has anyone's favourite ship gone missing in that Squid screenie above? o_O
13:24:04 <V453000> did the tt-forums BK discussion just get removed?
13:24:10 <Pikka> I just split it
13:24:26 <Pikka> if planetmaker wants the discussion, he can have it, it's now in general openttd ;}
13:24:48 <V453000> valid name
13:24:49 <peter1138> no office
13:24:54 <peter1138> no offence
13:25:02 <peter1138> but moving it there was silly
13:25:09 <Pikka> it's a silly discussion
13:25:39 <andythenorth> off topic?
13:25:48 <Pikka> and nothing to do with newgrf development
13:25:49 <Pikka> if the openttd moderators want to rename it, lock it, whatever, they should.
13:25:52 <planetmaker> what, Pikka ?
13:26:09 <planetmaker> the one in Transport Tycoon? Doesn't belong in OpenTTD
13:26:20 <Pikka>
13:27:31 <planetmaker> why did you do that for all the gods and devils out there?
13:27:57 <Pikka> because if I locked it people would whinge at me
13:28:06 <Pikka> instead, I pass the buck :)
13:28:09 <planetmaker> so... and if I just move it back?
13:28:30 <planetmaker> really, what's the point Pikka?
13:28:45 <peter1138> no, not the transport tycoon one
13:28:56 <Pikka> I wanted to split it
13:29:06 <Pikka> and this conversation has nothing to do with newgrf development
13:29:15 <Pikka> if you can think of a better place than general openttd, move it.
13:29:21 <planetmaker> spam bin
13:29:30 <Pikka> go ahead
13:29:45 <planetmaker> and it's all about newgrf development
13:29:55 <Pikka> no it's not, it's about what goes on bananas
13:30:02 <peter1138> technically it's about newgrf releases ;)
13:30:14 <andythenorth> thread tennis
13:30:19 <Pikka> it's an openttd issue, not a newgrf one

14:16:43 <Flygon> Yknow you're playing Civilization correctly when there's so many cities
14:16:48 <Flygon> It overflows into Australian names
14:38:42 <Flygon> Annnnd I overflowed the name chart completely
14:40:19 * Pinkbeast plays small maps and abhors any game where I don't know which city is which immediately, so, er...
14:41:34 <Flygon> Ah, I keep track easily enough
14:41:50 <Flygon> Trying out this world map that's over 32767 total squares
14:42:17 <peter1138> small then
14:42:24 <peter1138> oh, civ, not ottd
14:43:41 <Flygon> Oh...
14:43:42 <Flygon> Oh no
14:43:43 <kormer> Does anyone here now why I'd get an error "unknown debug level ai=5" when doing openttd.exe -d ai=5?
14:43:51 <Flygon> The AI used the same overflow chart
14:43:57 <Flygon> Now they have cities that share names with mine
14:44:01 <peter1138> uheheh
14:44:47 <Pinkbeast> I raise an eyebrow whenever Istanbul and Constantinople appear on the same map
14:45:00 <peter1138> kormer, kormer because "ai" isn't a valid debug thing
14:45:27 <peter1138> might be script you're looking for, dunno though
14:45:34 <kormer> am I doing it wrong then? I copied from here:
14:46:28 <peter1138> it's probably out of date
14:47:27 <Flygon> Pinkbeast: Took me a few seconds, hahaha
14:48:04 <kormer> I'm trying to get the ai/gs debug console copied to a file outside of openttd, is there another way of going about that?
14:51:43 <peter1138> script
14:51:49 <peter1138> openttd -d script=5
14:52:29 <kormer> thanks
14:52:38 <kormer> I'll try that and make a note in the wiki
14:54:45 <kormer> IT WORKED! Thanks. Multiplayer league tables here we come.
14:55:42 <Flygon> Pinkbeast: On the upside. 7 move Ironclads. These buggers move faster than any ship that could possibly exist in OpenTTD. :B
14:56:06 <peter1138> pfft
14:56:14 <peter1138> fast ships smell in ottd
14:56:21 <peter1138> instant stoppage!

18:25:43 <peter1138> no
18:26:13 <andythenorth> spoilsport
18:27:18 <andythenorth> where's your sense of arbitrary rule making?
18:27:39 <peter1138> i play at 640x480
18:28:00 <__ln__> no you don't
18:28:03 <andythenorth> he might
18:28:06 <andythenorth> I used to
18:28:12 <andythenorth> it's much more pleasant
18:28:13 <Eddi|zuHause> how come your pink placeholder ferries are at totally different offsets?
18:28:26 <andythenorth> hysterical raisins
18:28:43 <andythenorth> to do with copying and pasting in the CMS that drives the set config
18:29:11 <andythenorth> 640x480 makes the GUI way nicer to use
18:29:20 <andythenorth> zoom is good and all, but the GUI doesn't zoom :P
18:30:38 <Eddi|zuHause> use biggui
18:31:25 <Eddi|zuHause> or downgrade to 0.5-ish and use Ctrl+D :p
18:33:05 <andythenorth> I need to downgrade OS X
18:33:13 <andythenorth> this is the usual no mac dev issue :)
18:33:25 <andythenorth> o_O I could run it in virtual box?

18:34:51 <frosch123> a big plug blocked the only left socket for the coffee machine
18:35:41 <andythenorth> can someone unplug Dave W?
18:35:58 <frosch123> oh yeah, i would also be interested in that
18:35:59 <andythenorth> I find him odd
18:36:12 <andythenorth> what is he useful for?
18:36:31 <andythenorth> his mission seems to be somewhat towards being disliked
18:36:34 <andythenorth> which is odd
18:37:27 <Eddi|zuHause> nominate him for the simuscape hall of fame :)

18:46:50 <andythenorth> or Kamnet?
18:46:57 <andythenorth> it's quite a funny troll if so
18:47:39 <planetmaker> Oz is definitely trolling
18:47:56 <planetmaker> for as long as I can remember
18:48:15 <andythenorth> he gets good troll points
18:48:27 <andythenorth> it's quite well crafted and executed if so

20:01:26 <andythenorth> Rubidium: nice reply, but I don't get the issue :) !!BK Tunnels grf works exactly as intended. Players can install it no problem.
20:05:56 <Rubidium> intended by who?
20:06:37 <andythenorth> well
20:06:44 <Rubidium> imagine someone draws some very nice ships, and then puts a NewGRF with !!<name of set> on bananas which only contains some text
20:06:44 *** KouDy has quit IRC
20:06:47 <andythenorth> or just tell OzTrans he's being a dick and hide the content
20:06:53 <andythenorth> one or the other
20:07:16 <andythenorth> it's not like arguments with OzTrans are a new thing
20:07:18 <Rubidium> now, some users sees a screenshot, asks what GRF it is and it told it is <name of set>
20:07:40 <Rubidium> user goes to bananas, selects !!<name of set> (the only one showing with he filter)
20:07:53 *** Devroush has quit IRC
20:07:54 *** KouDy has joined #openttd
20:08:00 <Eddi|zuHause> i should put a GRF on bananas: "i have a nice grf, but you cannot have it!"
20:08:00 <Rubidium> downloads it, installs it, and is annoyed that the NewGRF does not work (no new ships)
20:08:11 <andythenorth> [shrug]
20:08:19 <andythenorth> like pikka said, lots of newgrfs don't really work
20:08:26 <andythenorth> it's not new to have crappy content on bananas
20:08:33 <andythenorth> nor is it new to have falling outs with OzTrans
20:08:35 <Alberth> Eddi|zuHause: make lots of nice screen shots and post them everywhere!!
20:08:50 <Eddi|zuHause> and then "my GRF is better than MBs and Pikkas combined, but you can still not have it"
20:08:54 <Rubidium> andythenorth: crappy content != effectively no content
20:09:21 <andythenorth> did you remove it already then? :)
20:09:49 <Rubidium> I won't remove it, I'll just make it invisible
20:09:52 <Kjetil> oztrans ?
20:09:53 <andythenorth> \o/
20:10:18 <andythenorth> maybe Apple examples aren't the best here, but there *is* a sound effect on the mac called sosumi
20:10:39 <andythenorth> which relates to "Apple Records had an injunction preventing Apple Computer making devices with playback capability"
20:11:58 <andythenorth> arsing about with the ToS is a legal headache, with no purpose, as nothing community related is coming to court anyway
20:12:18 <andythenorth> there might be some forum moaning, then just lock the thread
20:13:39 <Kjetil> just put "This is not a democracy in the ToS"
20:14:03 <SpComb> I doubt ToS is a legal anything much
20:14:59 <SpComb> but I guess the "educate grf authors about how bananas works" angle has already been tried?
20:15:26 <Rubidium> yeah
20:15:52 <Rubidium> issue is that they want to delete the GRF, and if it is up to them, deleting it from bananas triggers deleting it from the user's computer as well
20:17:27 <andythenorth> well that's not how it works
20:17:31 <andythenorth> so the issue can be closed: invalid
20:17:46 <andythenorth> like you said, bananas makes a promise / policy about savegames
20:18:05 <andythenorth> it's not a fucking DRM system
20:18:28 <andythenorth> content I've got doesn't stop working because 'you' decide (unless you - Rubidium decide :P )
20:18:34 <Rubidium> and since they don't want their actual content on it, but they "need" it to be visible in bananas they are trying to do tricks
20:18:42 <andythenorth> I don't mind DRM when I know what I'm getting into, i.e. iTunes
20:19:00 <andythenorth> but that's not OpenTTD
20:19:16 <Kjetil> *mumbles something about Open*
20:19:19 <Rubidium> even so, if we add it to OpenTTD, then the next day someone will post binaries with that (mis)feature removed
20:19:48 <andythenorth> I quite like the hax they've done though. Creative :)
20:21:01 <andythenorth> still
20:21:07 <andythenorth> just hide it
20:21:11 <Eddi|zuHause> not everything that is creative is a benefit in the long term
20:21:18 <andythenorth> OzTrans doesn't give a fuck about community, he's shown that over and over again
20:21:23 <andythenorth> so bin him
20:21:23 <Alberth> imho there are far better ways to spend your time
20:21:39 <andythenorth> whereas this otherwise escalates into a stupid 'vs. Simuscape issue'
20:21:53 <andythenorth> which makes SAC sad, because blatantly she really wants everyone to get along nicely
20:22:08 <andythenorth> and makes me bored, only not bored enough to ignore it :P
20:22:52 <andythenorth> I wonder if SAC has accidentally landed herself the worst possible people from a community perspective
20:23:16 <frosch123> andythenorth: is the pink ship some kind of dummy/placeholder sprite?
20:23:27 <andythenorth> she wants somewhere nice and safe and friendly, and has at least one person who has managed to alienate nearly everyone
20:23:36 <andythenorth> frosch123: no it's a new style I'm trying :)
20:23:45 <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: i sure hope so :p
20:24:14 <frosch123> well, you can never be sure about andy :)
20:24:44 <Eddi|zuHause> you have a point there...
20:24:55 <frosch123> the little cumbrae freighter looks nice
20:25:03 <andythenorth> I am proud of that one
20:25:18 <andythenorth> it's efficient on pixel use
20:25:19 <frosch123> it's really "little" :)
20:25:23 <andythenorth> reduces CPU time
20:34:07 <peter1138> hmm
20:34:16 <peter1138> cucumber freighter
20:35:33 *** Superuser has joined #openttd
20:35:36 <Superuser> hello again

20:36:29 <Superuser> STR_TIMETABLE_EXPECTED_TOOLTIP: '{BLACK}Switch between expected and schedule'
20:36:39 <Superuser> hmm... shouldn't it be scheduled? ;)
20:36:49 <Superuser> (note the past tense)
20:38:47 <andythenorth> peter1138:
20:39:00 <Superuser> can 'v' (version) be longer by, ooh... 5 characters? :)
20:40:14 <Superuser> ^ THAT IS A SERIOUS QUESTION BY THE WAY ^
20:40:25 <frosch123> and i don't understand it
20:41:49 <Superuser> Where does this show up? is it okay to make the string a bit longer
20:42:08 <Superuser> also, STR_TIMETABLE_EXPECTED_TOOLTIP should have the English string corrected
20:42:47 <Superuser> frosch123??
20:42:53 <frosch123> <- i believe it is the text on the left panel
20:44:23 <Superuser> dang, where might that be
20:44:34 <frosch123> you need to enable the ai developer tools
20:44:37 <Superuser> I don't indulge much in AI debugging...
20:44:49 <Superuser> well, to save time - do YOU think there is enough space?
20:45:13 <frosch123> there is even the ai name, and windows generally resize
20:45:25 <Alberth> <-- example, Superuser
20:45:45 <Superuser> egg-celent
20:45:46 <Alberth> ie AIAI(v87)
20:45:53 <andythenorth> peter1138: can't do a cucumber freighter, there is no lighthouse of that name :P
20:45:59 <andythenorth> I could do a cucumber cargo
20:46:06 <andythenorth> then it would be a cucumber freighter
20:46:16 <andythenorth> it could go to a cucumber sandwich factory
20:46:26 <Alberth> make a FARM newgrf :)
20:46:27 <andythenorth> which could be delivered to 'posh houses'
20:46:36 <andythenorth> hmm
20:46:50 <andythenorth> openttd does not sufficiently reflect our modern class-based society
20:48:55 <Kjetil> Also the world is not flat...
20:50:09 <Superuser> openttd has hills :)
20:50:14 <Superuser> and the sea
20:50:31 <Kjetil> the sea at the edge of the world ? :P
20:52:17 <Alberth> otherwise my expensive trains would drive off the world!!
20:54:48 <MNIM> actually
20:55:10 <MNIM> what does OTTD do when you force a train to the end of the world?
20:55:12 * MNIM tests
20:55:36 <V453000> is the !! WTF hidden yet? I can still see it
20:57:07 <frosch123> MNIM: the train is cloned; the real train is send to a train heaven, while a fake one remains in your game
20:57:24 <frosch123> don't let the fake train fool you
20:58:07 <MNIM> awww. it just stops and returns
20:58:09 <MNIM> shame.
20:58:24 <MNIM> it would have been fun to have it as some freaky easter egg disaster or something like that
20:58:50 <frosch123> that happens only on some tiles
20:58:52 <frosch123> try harder
21:03:56 <Kjetil> easter egg disaster like: "You discovered america ?"
21:10:44 <frosch123> there are easter egg vehicles advertising games of which the successor game has already been released

22:13:48 <andythenorth> "output"
22:14:02 <andythenorth> I did plan to implement HEQS as trains
22:14:04 <andythenorth> with a new railtype
22:14:25 <andythenorth> 'plan' is a word not to interpret too literally
22:18:52 <Supercheese> "think about briefly" perhaps
22:19:33 <andythenorth> "amuse myself with"
22:19:40 <andythenorth> Squid might get cargo sprites

22:20:18 <NGC3982>
22:20:29 <andythenorth> is it worth showing cargo in ships if it's only seen whilst loading?
22:20:46 <Supercheese> Freight barges are uncovered
22:20:49 <Supercheese> worth showing cargo there
22:21:07 <Supercheese> Most other cases, not as much

22:49:13 <Superuser> : '{WHITE}{STRING} readme of {STRING}'
22:49:26 <Superuser> are you intentionally trying to make strings untranslatable
22:51:17 <planetmaker> we're intentionally trying to keep the amount of needed strings low. Thus of required repetitive translations
22:52:03 <Superuser> talking of which, where is this actually printed?
22:52:13 <Superuser> it's in a whole series of strings I can't find
22:53:26 <Superuser> Anyone?
22:53:29 <planetmaker> whereever readmes need displaying...
22:53:36 <Zuu> I suspect this one is printed in the window caption of the window that displays the readme of Ais GSs NewGrfs etc.
22:54:41 <Zuu> Whenever I wonder where a string is used and I cannot understand that from the string name, I copy the full STR_.. name and make a global search for that in the entire source code.
22:54:49 <planetmaker> piece of advice, Superuser : your tone makes me hesitant to reply...
22:55:06 <Superuser> That being?
22:55:31 <Superuser> I like to append 'Anyone?' and similar things to my queries so it is made clear that I'm asking questions I expect answered.
22:55:50 <Superuser> That is an unfortunate part of the culture of idling on IRC :(
22:56:34 <Zuu> Allow a bit more than a minute for someone to type an answer.
