05:51<berger>hi
05:52<berger>i have a quick TTD newbie question regarding Depots
05:53<berger>when building one-way tracks
05:53<berger>yet you need a depot
05:53<berger>and using signals
05:53<berger>is there any way of stopping the train from travelling in the "wrong" direction when it leaves the depot
05:54|-|Smoky555 [~Miranda@80.69.148.14] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
05:55<Patrick>hook up the depot so that trains can go both ways
05:55<Patrick>if you build it next to track it should just d it
05:56<boekabart>berger: i suppose you don't want to just put 1 way signals on the main track just before and after the depot, because that's the easiest way to do it
05:57<berger>yeah i have done that Patrick but occasionally they come out and go anti clock instead of clockwise if you see what i mean
05:57<boekabart>if you don't want that, build the depot 1 tile away from the main line (or more), connect it with 2 '45 degree' tracks and put the 1-way signals on those connectors
05:58<berger>ok boekabart ill try that thanks :)

07:55<RobertGrammig>somebody in a thread claimed that the wealth of a city determines the amount of citizens at stations. is there any documentation on how this wealth value is calculated, and on the factors affecting it? cant find anything in the wiki
07:57<boekabart>afaik it's only calculated from the houses in the catchment area
07:58<boekabart>city isn't so much of an entity, it a 'point' that counts all the buildings around it to figure out its population

07:59<RobertGrammig>so scia is just wrong about the current development nightlies?
08:01<boekabart>i don't know what he means by rich
08:02<boekabart>is he talking about a specific branch?
08:02<RobertGrammig>to me it sounds like he is referring to the plain nightlies... probably just confusing rich with populated

13:31<Wolf01>boekabart, what about the rivers patch?
13:31<boekabart>have not yet had time to test the grf
13:32<boekabart>it's actually not a rivers patch, it's a higher sea level patch that was modified a bit to support rivers too
13:32<boekabart>but they are controversial in the current implementation: flooding risk is huge
13:33<Wolf01>yeah
13:33<@Belugas>leads to a new industry type : rice culture ;)
13:34<Wolf01>maybe, i can suggest you this: let the water start to flow in a random direction where it can, and continue to flow in the same direction until it find an obstacle
13:34<boekabart>as i said before, i've been playing with another approach (for both), but it's graphically even more challenging
13:34|-|Vikthor [~Vikthor@snat1.spoje.net] has joined #openttd
13:36<Wolf01>this will make straight rivers of water in a plateau, but with some "noise" you can do some realistic rivers
13:37<Bjarni><Belugas> leads to a new industry type : rice culture ;) <-- that would be a natural followup on the Japanese and Chinese translations ;)
13:38<boekabart>I'll post some shots of what I have tomorrow
13:38<Wolf01>good
13:41<@Belugas>Bjarni : good one :)
13:42<peter1138>boekabart: graphically isn't a problem
13:42<boekabart>it is
13:42<boekabart>because water tiles raise single pixels
13:42<boekabart>imagine a coast..
13:42<peter1138>hmm
13:42<peter1138>ok, it is :p
13:42<boekabart>coasts are the most tricky
13:42<peter1138>but it's not insurmountable
13:42<peter1138>just need different sprites for each level
13:42<peter1138>but that's only 8 for each type
13:43<peter1138>only... heh
13:43<boekabart>the 1 pixel diff in height can be done by drawing an edge around it like it's done for slopes with something built on it
13:44<Wolf01>peter1138, i was reading boekabart blog: "Peter1138 added the transaparent water option, so you can see how deep the sea is. In the 32bpp version, we can make the water surface semi-transparent I guess." why not also in 8bpp? you can make houses and trees transparent, tiles could be transparent too
13:44<boekabart>but to convert all coasts to straight 'quays' ...
13:44<peter1138>Wolf01: it looks shit
13:44<Wolf01>oh, that's why
13:45<boekabart>Wolf01: there is a conversion palette for 'transparant' and it is not pretty for water
13:45<Eddi|zuHause2>for transparent water, you should have sea-ground sprites that are dark blue
13:45<peter1138>we can add a palette map for it
13:45<boekabart>i'm for ;)
13:45<peter1138>but... you need gridlines on the surface for it to look good
13:46<peter1138>boekabart: we need a lot of sprites for this waterlevel, but is that a big issue?
13:46<boekabart>well no
13:47<boekabart>i'll post shots tomorrow morning (CET) so everyone can see what we are talking about.
13:47<peter1138>hmm, we'll need corner flooding too
13:49<boekabart>but now, i'm going to play Kardinal & Konig on BrettSpielWelt with some old friends. that's what we do all tuesdays...

13:59<peter1138>we've been beaten :p
14:00<Eddi|zuHause2>they probably have been spying on us, and copied our feature :)
14:00<Bjarni>they do that from time to time
14:00<Bjarni>they copied my autoreplace idea, yet not the GUI
14:01<Bjarni>they still lack the ability to have two horizontal scrollbars :p
14:01<Maedhros>it's only fair, given the number of patch features we've 'appropriated' :)
14:02<peter1138>yeah, but now they've done it first, therefore we'll be 'copying' them again ;p
14:02<Maedhros>heh
14:03<Bjarni>we never copy anything
14:03<Bjarni>we just brainstorm and figure out nice features and then we code them
14:03<Rubidium>we 'improve' them?
14:03<Bjarni>the fact that somebody else thought about it too has nothing to do with it
14:04<Bjarni>everything we do is an improvement over the patch because it runs natively on my computer ;)
14:05<Sacro|Laptop>but does it run linux?
14:05<Eddi|zuHause2>there is a big difference about two people separately developing an idea, or one person picking up an idea from someone else (and then implementing it differently)
14:06<Zuu>What's most important here is not if it run on Linux or not but that it run on Bjarni's computer. :)
14:06<Bjarni>yeah
14:07<Zuu>So a version that run of a bootable memory stick would also be fine :)

15:35<Bulb>Hello Folks,
15:36<Bulb>I am currently sketching some small fixes in the aircraft handling and want to ask.
15:36<Bulb>What do you think about speed of broken-down aircraft?
15:38<ln->well above zero
15:38<Bulb>The current value is 320km/h. That feels way too slow (It's 170ktas, which for larger aircraft would mean flaps down)
15:38<Phazorx>i guess point of speed reduction is to introdice delays - instead i'd rather see mandatory landing on closest port
15:38<Phazorx>or faling down if there is none :)
15:39<ln->and priority given to the broken one
15:39<Phazorx>naturally
15:39<Phazorx>that's harder tho
15:39<Phazorx>going to land off course is hard too
15:40<Phazorx>as well as having "range" which is currently abcent unfortunatelly :(
15:40<Bulb>Well, I'd love to see 'has to land within 100 squares or crashes' as well.

15:40<Phazorx>configurable range :)
15:40<Bulb>However, it's really hard to do.
15:40<Phazorx>Bulb: find aiport in rnage or fall down now is easier
15:41<Phazorx>assuming there is range as property
15:41<Bulb>A quick improvement would be what (if I understood one post in the forum) TTDP does -- the speed is reduced to 5/8.
15:41<Phazorx>that's still ugly
15:41|-|lolman [~lolman@cpc3-leds2-0-0-cust55.leed.cable.ntl.com] has joined #openttd
15:42<Phazorx>my point was - havining wange broadens variety of used aircrafts
15:42<Phazorx>wange = range
15:42<Bulb>Does anybody remember what is the original speed of broken down aircraft (at least roughly, asi it didn't have speed readout) in OTTD?
15:42<Phazorx>and also can be used to determine broken travel distance
15:42<Phazorx>1/4th
15:42<Phazorx>that's TTDs
15:44<Bulb>Phazorx, no, 1/4th was the conversion from displayed speed to in-game speed. The broken-down speed was constant, because being broken down had no effect on helicopters.
15:44<Bulb>(making it feasible to operate a helicopter with 1% reliability, which was in turn necessary because there were no helicopters at all available towards end of the game)
15:44<Phazorx>ahh sorry missed the broken part :)
15:45<Phazorx>80 mph
15:46<Bulb>In the "displayed" or "real" units?
15:47<Phazorx>in google :)
15:48<Phazorx>i'd say in displayed
15:48<Phazorx>cuz i recall busses passing early planes :)

15:48<Bulb>Hm, because it does not match my experience with it. Helicopters flew more than 80mph and did not slow down.
15:48|-|boekabart [~bdb@g54037.upc-g.chello.nl] has joined #openttd
15:49<Bulb>Well, the early planes were flying about 90mph real. ... um, and the broken-down speed was a little less than that, so it might actually have been 80mph real.
15:51<Bulb>That is 320mph displayed. So I'll raise it to 320mph (from 320km/h) in my simple patch and post that patch and than try looking into the land-or-crash. Hm, I am not sure how to give broken-down aircraft priority yet. Maybe CobraA1 will work out his airplane queueing patch and that will support it.
15:51<boekabart>can't a broken airplane do an emergency landing on a road nearby?
15:51<Phazorx>Bulb: i dont think queueing is necessary

15:53<Phazorx>TTD is not quite real life
15:53<boekabart>ha, true
15:53<Bulb>No, aircraft has to land on an airport, because they could not repair it elsewhere.
15:53<boekabart>ah and a train is repaired on the middle of the rails?
15:53<Phazorx>Bulb: is implementing range for aircraft with refit options challenging?
15:53<boekabart>so let the plane hang still in the air when broken down. make a ladder come out of it so the engineers can climb up there :)
15:54<Bulb>:-D

15:54|-|boekabart [~bdb@g54037.upc-g.chello.nl] has left #openttd []
15:56<Bulb>Well, having aircraft requiring to land within some distance or crash would have definitely add to the challenge. Because you could not simply put two airports at oposite ends of the map, you would have to build some emergency landing points in between too.
15:57<Phazorx>yup, here is use for small airports
15:58<Phazorx>also - regular flight range is sometihng that will add variety
15:58<Bulb>Another option is to make aircraft slow down as they do now and have them land at closest airport (but not limiting how far that would be), because that fixes tham.
15:58<Phazorx>and will make planes networks more star based
15:59<Bulb>Well, large aircraft will often crash on small airports, so you can't really use tham.
15:59<Phazorx>i can't say it fixes the issue - planes still gets to destination relatively fast and delivers passengirs
15:59<Bulb>s/tham/them/
15:59<Phazorx>well that can be controlled as well
15:59<Phazorx>and crashing plane should only crash due to range :)

16:00<Patrick>how about:
16:00<Patrick>the longer the aircraft's journey, the smaller the capacity and the higher the running costs
16:00<Patrick>more fuel, less pax
16:01<Patrick>don't worry about keeping tabs on it per-mile or anything
16:01<Bulb>Aircraft are relatively fast. But their running costs should be so high (hint -- there is one line change missing to make newgrf aircraft sets aware of the bigger speed), that aircraft must actually be always full and not wait too long to land to be profitable.
16:01<Patrick>or else congestion would kill your planes
16:02<Bulb>Yeah. Another thing would be passenger destinations.
16:02<Phazorx>Patrick: any plane has different range depending on load
16:02<Bulb>(But I have to say I don't like the way they are proposed on the forum currently)
16:02<Phazorx>more kerosine = less cargo, more range = more kerosin
16:03<Bulb>I would like passenger destinations, where more people would be interested in closer locations and less in further ones. So there would not be so many passengers that would want to fly.
16:04<Phazorx>i'm not sure if i like that aspect - biger location should have priority

16:04<ln->should the planes also be made dump fuel if they need to land sooner than expected?
16:05<Bulb>And the matching would be done so that the probability to match closer points would be higher.
16:05<Phazorx>in that is taken care by maintance fees
16:05<Touqen>ln-: That seems unnecessarily realisitic.
16:05<Phazorx>fuel price is part of that
16:05<Bulb>So more passengers to closer destinations and more passengers to bigger destinations (they generate more so they accept more)
16:05<Phazorx>Bulb: that is not very neccessary and ratehr hard
16:06<Phazorx>if you have passengeer generation proporcional to town size - that would require shuttle services

16:06<Phazorx>so you would collect passengeers to same big city
16:06<Bulb>Phazorx: There are different ways to generate the passenger destinations and the choice has huge impact on the gameplay.
16:06<Phazorx>from few local towns somewhere and these use big aircraft to get them there
16:07<Eddi|zuHause2>aircraft running costs increase with the time they spend continuously in the air, that could be interesting
16:07<Phazorx>Bulb: totaly agree... size based aproach seems to be less challenging to implement tho
16:07<Phazorx>Eddi|zuHause2: fees are per time
16:07<Phazorx>more flight = more time = more cost
16:08<Phazorx>that si taken care of aside of proportions
16:08<Eddi|zuHause2>but the aircraft range thing... should not lead to crashes, only prevent assigning orders for far away airports
16:08<Phazorx>what i'd like is if that 747 is hauling 150t - it goes 200tiles
16:08<Phazorx>if 100 - 300
16:08<Phazorx>and so on
16:08<Phazorx>with option to refit
16:09<Phazorx>so you would have to use 767 for long range
16:09<Bulb>Well, you have to somehow select the station. And selecting it so, that for each station you have number how many passengers it wants and selecting random station that wants passengers might be reasonably simple.
16:10<Phazorx>Bulb: from what i gather you want to generate 2 passengeers every time goign in opposite directions ?
16:10<Bulb>Phazorx: No.

16:18<Phazorx>Bulb: i think random in that part is quite unrealistic

16:19<Phazorx>"passenghers last month" of target ?
16:19<Bulb>Yes, exactly.
16:19<Phazorx>that is same as population then
16:20<Bulb>There is a problem, that stations don't have population.
16:20<Phazorx>or there might be no station
16:20<Phazorx>so if you have 2 airports
16:20<Phazorx>everybody will go inbetween ?
16:21<Phazorx>i kinda dont see how destination could be particualtr station
16:21<Phazorx>so i though you imply "city"
16:21<Bulb>The current proposal chooses among connected stations. So the number of passengers generated when you have just one other station connected will be the same as when you have large netwek.
16:21<Phazorx>since in MP context station being target is very destructive to game play
16:21<Bulb>Destination must be a particular station.
16:21<Phazorx>hmm.. weird
16:22<Phazorx>i dont see why they did it this way
16:22<Bulb>Well, since the current proposal only selects among *connected* stations, there is no problem.
16:22<Phazorx>what's wrong with selecting place with airport ?
16:22<Phazorx>well it is a bit unrealistic on level of only having passengers to desired by company owner destinations
16:23<Eddi|zuHause2>chances are, that celestar already has an own model for passenger destinations in mind
16:23<Phazorx>rather than targeting players attention to where they want to go
16:23<Phazorx>perhaps we can influence that model :)
16:24<Bulb>I don't really know what Celestar has in mind and I hope it's something sensible. Unfortunately he does not seem to be making any progress.
16:25<Bulb>On the other hand there is already a patch in the forum and it is IMHO not very good (neither the idea nor the patch itself)
16:26<Bulb>There are passenger destinations in SimuTrans since it's start. They are done so, that a destination point is chosen randomly within city limits of any city and if station covering that point exists, passenger is generated and assigned that destination.
16:27<Bulb>Downside of that is, that initially you have very few passengers, because most of them would want to go somewhere where you don't have connection yet.
16:27<Patrick>passenger destinations should change depending on the links available
16:28<Phazorx>that makes total sence in reality Bulb
16:28<Patrick>if the only train in my town was to capital city, that's the one I'd take
16:28<Bulb>The proposal by prissi (who is also simutrans developer) is to select from connected stations, which I fear is the other extreme.
16:28<Patrick>passengers should be able to change :)
16:28|-|moe [~Maui_key@p5498CEE6.dip.t-dialin.net] has quit []
16:28<Bulb>Yes, passengers are able to change. The 'connected' property is transitive.
16:30<Bulb>The problem is, that a station will generate the same number of passengers independently of how well it is connected. Which IMHO somewhat looses the point (though it still has the point of making feeder systems useful).
16:30<Patrick>a catchment area is a reasonable approximation to life
16:31<Patrick>let me deviate: in the game defcon, all vehicles have binary health. They're either alive or they're not. Weapons fire has a probability of death.
16:31<Patrick>that's an approximation that makes coding much simpler, but the game is still approximately real
16:31<Patrick>those are the sorts of simplifications we should try to make
16:31<Bulb>So I would love to see something in between. Passengers would want to go to random place (not just station - so the more of map you cover, the more passengers you get), but closer destinations are more likely, so when you connect two nearby towns, you get reasonable amount of passengers.
16:32<Bulb>And on the other hand it will make feeder to an airport less efficient in the end, because there will simply be few passengers who'd want to travel across the whole map.
16:34<Eddi|zuHause2>Bulb: what you need is some kind of poisson-distribution, or similar
16:35<Bulb>Yes, something like that.
16:36<Bulb>So that you can get good amount of passengers with small network to get profit from it and more, but not too mamy with a large one.
16:36<Eddi|zuHause2>a passenger should choose a random target tile, and then find the closest (connected) station
16:37<Bulb>Yes. The title should be some that generates (fraction of) passengers, though. Which is hard.
16:37<Phazorx>i tihnk different tyles should have different values then
16:38<Phazorx>many people want to go empire states building or louve and lesss to middle of sahara
16:38<Bulb>They do. It would reuse the probabilities a tile generates a passenger.

16:42<Bulb>Of course. That's not the main issue. The main issue is how to calculate the probability of the passenger not finding a station!

16:54<Eddi|zuHause2>use shared orders?
16:56<RobertGrammig>ok thats a nice concept didnt know about it

16:57<RobertGrammig>for my problem however I have lots of different destinations that are all served from my min airport and shared orders only slightly alleviate that problem

16:59<Eddi|zuHause2>on the airport, you can open a list of all aircraft that have it in the orders, you'll have no other choice than going through that list, until it is empty
16:59<RobertGrammig>ok
17:02<Biff>it should be some in-game scripting language
17:02<Biff>for plane in aircrafts: plane.orders[0] = foo
17:03<Patrick>mmm, python
17:03<Eddi|zuHause2>there is the noai branch :)
17:03<Biff>Ooh, python
