08:27:51 <petern> Well
09:23:44 <andythenorth[d]> path-block signals?
09:24:00 * andythenorth[d] wonders what could go wrong
09:24:42 <petern> Installed Linux, I think it annoys me more than Windows, so...
09:27:23 <andythenorth[d]> OS/2 next?
09:43:17 <petern> I guess I uninstalled all those unplayed Steam games for no reason 😄
09:51:30 *** Samu has joined #openttd
10:02:34 <petern>
10:02:34 <petern> Software that updates itself but keeps the old versions around... :/
10:15:11 <petern> And also grows larger...
10:30:56 <FLHerne> petern: new stuff is always more annoying though
10:31:16 <FLHerne> you notice the random stupid things that after a while are just background noise :p
10:31:39 <andythenorth[d]> hmm
10:32:08 <andythenorth[d]> PBS signal red/green display -> path reservation on the tile -> act like current PBS
10:33:03 <andythenorth[d]> nah actually stupid idea
10:33:26 <andythenorth[d]> I wanted to check the next tile for a path reservation, and show green if there isn't one
10:33:38 <andythenorth[d]> but that doesn't account for paths, it's block-signal thinking
10:33:49 <andythenorth[d]> meh
10:34:18 <FLHerne> andythenorth[d]: the guy isn't wrong aesthetically
10:34:19 <andythenorth[d]> auto-signalling tool, builds block if there's no junction detected?
10:34:33 <andythenorth[d]> I hate PBS they're always red and slow
10:34:43 <andythenorth[d]> I love PBS it's the best way to build a network
10:35:18 <andythenorth[d]> this is solved in JGRPP with new signal types, but there has been zero appetite so far to integrate that to vanilla 🙂
10:35:52 <petern> I know right, all those rejected PRs.
10:36:00 <andythenorth[d]> yeah that
10:36:14 <andythenorth[d]> the absence of making them
10:36:17 <andythenorth[d]> not approving them
10:36:41 <andythenorth[d]> goes it I learn signalling?
10:36:48 <andythenorth[d]> that would be lolz for some
10:37:47 <andythenorth[d]> hmm I'd want silly things though, like an optional sound effect
10:39:23 * andythenorth[d] looking for musical racing games
10:39:39 <andythenorth[d]> we need to be able to make a synth, but with trains
10:39:54 <andythenorth[d]> one of my kids did it in minecraft redstone
10:42:25 <FLHerne> petern: eh, in a climate where all the existing block signals are being hidden, creating a PR would be a waste of time unless it's some *really* neat concept
10:43:16 <FLHerne> ...or maybe now the 'advanced' signals are hidden by default it's acceptable to add more types because newbies won't see them anyway? :D
10:43:54 <andythenorth[d]> the JGRPP implementation is awesome, but it might not be appropriate for people new to the game
10:46:24 <FLHerne> which of the JGRPP things? :p
10:46:35 <FLHerne> block signalling w/ deceleration?
10:46:57 <petern> I might look at pulling apart newgrf road stops.
10:47:19 <reldred> what's wrong with it?
10:47:40 <petern> But I think the general station/object UI needs work first.
10:48:31 <FLHerne> we've lived with it for years for rail stations, I don't feel it needs to be a blocker for that?
10:48:46 <FLHerne> besides your personal priorities :-)
10:49:29 <andythenorth[d]> FLHerne: yes, the realistic braking thing
10:49:33 <reldred> I'm just thinking things might start getting noisy if Fridaemon releases a major roadstops set (as opposed to my hackjob of his warehouses)
10:49:51 <andythenorth[d]> I can't keep track of all the different JGR signalling options, but there's one with PBS where you change a setting and add a grf
10:50:03 <andythenorth[d]> and then signals look correct with red / green / yellow etc
10:50:16 <andythenorth[d]> there's also long reserve or something maybe 🙂
10:50:44 <andythenorth[d]> I could build JGRPP and actually have facts not vague comments, but eh, I should go to a meeting
10:50:59 <petern> All signals should be path signals, just some signals could have extra features.
10:52:24 <andythenorth[d]> I want one that animates spinning around as the train goes past
10:52:28 *** All_Heil_Lord_Pepe has joined #openttd
10:52:28 <All_Heil_Lord_Pepe> I have it set up like british 4 aspect signals but at 4 tile gaps O still don't have long enough green sections to make it super realistic.
10:53:29 <All_Heil_Lord_Pepe> Unless block signals are also drawn as 4 aspects but retain their red or green phase.
10:58:26 <petern> Block signals don't exist.
11:08:06 <JGR> petern: Submitting PRs which are guaranteed not to be accepted is just wasting my and the dev team's time

13:10:18 <TallTyler> “Need”?
13:10:20 <Merni> The point is, nobody will be able to read that name on the screen anyway
13:10:39 <Merni> They might as well put it in the descriptive text (if it's a vehicle)

16:08:19 <Merni> And how tf does work
16:09:32 <petern> It's drawn by the widget itself.
16:09:42 <petern> L1330 sets the parameter up for it.
16:10:27 <Merni> ohhhhhhhhhh
16:15:11 <Merni> Also, what's line 1220-1225 doing? Going through every station in every station class and figuring out the width of the names?

16:47:29 <Merni> So, if I understand this right -- to define a widget with different behaviour from the default ones, you add a case in DrawWidget (line 1250 onwards), while leaving the widget tree initialisatio (line 1547 onwards) using one of the default widgets
16:47:49 <Merni> right?
17:08:46 *** Etua has joined #openttd
17:18:49 <andythenorth[d]> petern: do you have a patch for opening bridges then?
17:19:15 <petern> I had a patch for newgrf bridges somewhere...
17:19:49 <andythenorth[d]> ship has to wait while bridge opens, and when open, pathfinder can't run trains / RVs over the bridge
17:20:06 <petern> Merni: if you want to handle drawing that widget yourself, yes, you add a case in DrawWidget, but also change the type from WWT_LABEL to stop it doing the drawing itself.
17:20:15 <andythenorth[d]> could do an airdraft grf property for ships
17:20:22 <andythenorth[d]> might actually be gameplay valid
17:21:25 <andythenorth[d]> hmm deep water that was a thing
17:22:07 <Merni> petern: from WWT_LABEL to what?
17:22:28 <Gwyd> andythenorth[d]: Would be awful if trains tried to divert instead of wait
17:22:38 <andythenorth[d]> I think it's for model railroading
17:22:48 <andythenorth[d]> not max efficiency type networks
17:23:18 <Merni> even for model railroading (railwaying?) you don't want trains taking random routes because a bridge is clsoed for a few minutes
17:23:56 <andythenorth[d]> so it would need to not be pathfinding
17:23:59 <andythenorth[d]> signals
17:24:02 <andythenorth[d]> instead
17:25:20 <Gwyd> Road might be acceptable to find another path

18:26:41 <Xarick> ai/gs/newgrf buttons in scenario editor?
18:27:19 <petern> What about them?
18:27:37 <Gwyd> Yeah? Scenarios have AIs, GS, and Newgrfs associated
18:27:41 <Gwyd> They're just save games
18:28:11 *** crem has joined #openttd
18:29:47 <Xarick> im allowed to put newgrfs in the scenario at will? sounds like a recipe for disaster
18:30:04 <Merni> Xarick: what?
18:30:21 <Merni> don't most scenarios have newgrfs in them
18:32:35 <petern> It's a bug.
18:32:45 <Xarick> you can't just add newgrfs on an already started game/scenario
18:32:54 <petern> You can change the settings there, without actually creating a new landscape, and it doesn't warn you about changing NewGRFs.
18:33:05 <Merni> Xarick: you have always been able to do that though :p
18:33:22 <Merni> even from the game itself
18:33:33 <Xarick> no, you haven't. Only recently with these gui changes
18:33:34 <petern> Those buttons haven't been there very long.
18:33:54 <Merni> Xarick: before that you could just do newgrf_developer_tools
18:34:11 <petern> Yes, you can do that, and when you change the NewGRFs, you get a nice warning.
18:34:21 <petern> With these buttons you don't get that.
18:34:33 <Merni> ah, *that* then would be a bug
18:34:37 <Merni> not the existence of buttons
18:38:14 <Samu> even picking up different GS/AI in scenario editor is a bad idea
18:39:21 <Samu> I'm mildly *mad*

21:59:54 <TallTyler> At least in the US
22:07:39 <supermop_toil_> andythenorth[d]: why
