06:14<TheJosh>hey all
06:15<TheJosh>hows everyone going?
06:18<TheJosh>would anyone be able to help me with a tiny problem?
06:18<TheJosh> (sorry about the @@s)
06:18<TheJosh>i would like each item in the array to be unique... but im not quite sure how, as you dont use new on a struct
06:21<Zr40>TheJosh: place the @@ at the beginning of each line, not after the indentation
06:23<TheJosh>i noticed that afterwards...sorry
06:28|-|TheMask96 [] has joined #openttd
06:28<SpComb>Logs: (old: )
06:30<TheJosh>Zr40: do you know how I can do this? i know it must be a very simple thing to do
06:30<TheJosh>i just havent been working with c++ for very long
06:30<Zr40>looks like C to me
06:31<TheJosh>OpenTTD is coded in C++, but a lot of the code is still c-style
06:31<Zr40>so... you got an array of a struct?
06:32<TheJosh>i got it
06:32<TheJosh>i think
06:32<Zr40>define 'unique'
06:33<Noldo>TheJosh: there's nothing stoping you from using new with struct
06:34<TheJosh>so in c++, the border between a struct and a class is fuzzy?
06:35<Rubidium>no, the border between struct and class is very clear
06:35<TheJosh>but you can use new on both a struct and a class?
06:35<Maedhros>you can use new with anything that you can use malloc with
06:35<Noldo>the only difference is that the with struct te default is public and with class its pirvate
06:36<Rubidium>Noldo: exactly, which is a very clear border IMO
06:37<TheJosh>ah ok i get it now
06:38<Rubidium>though I wonder what you are trying to accomplish
06:39<TheJosh>cant tell (till the patch is done)
06:39<TheJosh>actually I will because its almost done
06:39<Rubidium>anyway, it leaks memory like hell
06:40<Rubidium>or rather, it doesn't at this moment, but the behaviour is totally broken
06:40<TheJosh>nah im not going the new path
06:40<TheJosh>ok my patch will be called "Named Shared Orders"
06:40<TheJosh>with a list like the sign list
06:40<Rubidium>and looking at the code I've got the idea it will leak like hell
06:41<Rubidium>and it allocates way way too much memory
06:41<TheJosh>im only mimicing whats already there
06:41<TheJosh>i know. i was trying to think of a better way of calculating, without a full check
06:42<TheJosh>i could go the last known figure, say plus somehting, but that could break bigtime
06:43<Rubidium>not if you allocate more memory when you do not have enough of it
06:43<TheJosh>like how Loading Indicators had a dynamic array
06:45<TheJosh>whats your thoughts on the idea overall (named shared orders)
06:45<Rubidium>I don't get the benefit over groups
06:46<TheJosh>can you set orders to a group?
06:47<Rubidium>if all vehicles in the group have the same shared order you can (just select one of the trains)
06:47[~]peter1138 ponders lunchification
06:47<TheJosh>i was thinking it could complment groups
06:48|-|roboboy [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:48<TheJosh>so you can have the group 'goods trains' but have the nso 'main factory to slenburg'
06:49<TheJosh>rather than having hundreds of groups with 5 trains in them
06:49<Rubidium>then it would probably better to make meta-groups
06:49<TheJosh>i was also going to have itso you can click the 'go to' button, and then click on a group in the list and the train would join that group
06:49<Rubidium>-+ goods trains
06:50<TheJosh>just like if you ctrl-clicked a train
06:50<Rubidium> +- main factory to X
06:50<Rubidium> +- main factory to Y
06:50<Rubidium>yes, something like that
06:50<TheJosh>i only went down the shared orders path because people use shared orders anyway
06:51<TheJosh>if you could just dump a name on a shared order, it saves you creating a group and assigning a group
06:51<TheJosh>and plainly, at this time its still quicker and easier to set up a shared order. ctrl-click a train. faster than making groups
06:52<TheJosh>groups encourage organisation. shared orders encourage geting the job done. thus groups are better for big numbers of trains and shared orders for small numbers of trains
06:52<Rubidium>a lot of people do not use shared orders
06:53<Noldo>and a lot of peopöe do?
06:53<Rubidium>and setting up groups is not that much extra work
06:53<TheJosh>i was also sort of hoping with this patch to encourage shared orders. i think people just dont know about them. i didnt know about them until i descovered them. now I use nothing else
06:53<Noldo>I need new fingers :(
06:54<Ammler>hmm, does trains with shared orders automatically belong to same group?
06:54<TheJosh>huh? why?
06:54<Ammler>but that would be cool, wouldn't?
06:54<TheJosh>there is a button thats been added recently to add traisn that are shared
06:54<Rubidium>Ammler: yes and no; if you add one train with shared order it is not, but it's one click away. If you clone a vehicle that is in a group, the cloned vehicle is in that group too
06:54<TheJosh>but you would have do click that one each time you added a train to the shared order
06:54<Rubidium>TheJosh: that button was there since the begin
06:55<TheJosh>opps, didnt notice :P
06:55<Ammler>Rubidium: thats good, imo
06:55<TheJosh>Ammler: would you use named shared orders?
06:55<Rubidium>TheJosh: and when people want to autoreplace on the shared orders?
06:56<Rubidium>then you tell them to make a group and autoreplace that?
06:56<Ammler>in past we named all ICE to know how much trains go from a to b
06:56<Ammler>now, we can make groups
06:56<Ammler>thats a lot easier
06:56<TheJosh>i only started making this patch because of this game i have been playing during lunchtime at work
06:57<Ammler>and if you clone a train where is already in a group, i think its fine
06:57<TheJosh>and at one point, i accideently ctrl-clicked on the wrong train, and then stuffed up the order. then i did it again to another train.
06:57<Ammler>TheJosh: to anwer your question, I think rather no
06:58<TheJosh>and i thouht it would be cool to be able to name the group and click on it in a list instead. then i get just the right nso
06:58<Ammler>but how difficult is it to give with shared order also the same group?
06:58<TheJosh>ah yes, but that requires a clone, which means stopping a train
06:58<Rubidium>trains need to be stopped to be cloned?
06:59<TheJosh>in a depo if i last remember
06:59<Rubidium>that sucks, must be doing something wrong when I cloned those running trains
06:59<TheJosh>the clone train button is a 'goto depo' button
06:59<Rubidium>click on depot, in the middle at the bottom
07:00<Ammler>you have a clone train button in the depot window
07:00<TheJosh>learn somehting new every day
07:01<Ammler>Rubidium: is it needed to have different groups for trains where sharing the orders?
07:02<Ammler>so my idea would be: share also group when sharing orders
07:02<Rubidium>groups are (currently) per vehicle, not per order
07:03<Rubidium>Ammler: you can do that, but it is not necessary
07:03<Ammler>but less complicated for managing
07:03<Rubidium>you could for example have some tourist steam trains going between towns and maglev passenger trains with the same orders
07:03<Rubidium>do you want them ALWAYS to be in the same group?
07:04<Rubidium>if shared orders == same group that would be the case
07:04<Ammler>I wouldnt also share the orders
07:04<Rubidium>but now the choice is yours
07:04<Ammler>Rubidium: yeah, its fine :)
07:06<Ammler>Anyway, the group thing did make our (#openttdcoop) ICE naming thing much easier
07:06<Ammler>that was a pain in past so most didn't do it right
07:07<Ammler>well, most don't it right now, still. ;)
07:07<Ammler>hmm, was that english?
07:07<Rubidium>ban them ;)
07:08<Rubidium>at least I'm sure I've never done it wrong ;)
07:08<Ammler>you mean, we should ban XeryusTC?
07:09<Ammler>that was fast
07:09<XeryusTC>ofcourse :P
07:09<Ammler>XeryusTC: do you know our new ICE naming system?
07:09<Rubidium>XeryusTC: seems you failed your OTTDcoop ICE train management exam
07:09|-|lolman_ [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
07:10<XeryusTC>there are 4 different systems :P
07:10<XeryusTC>and i seem to be the only one that cares about proper names :P

08:36<CIA-1>OpenTTD: peter1138 * r10736 /trunk/src/ (6 files in 2 dirs): -Fix: Correct all mispellings of 'successful'.
08:36<hylje>pedantry commit
08:37<Rubidium>successfulll :O
08:37<alex_>2062201] Client #71 is slow, try increasing *net_frame_freq to a higher value!
08:37<alex_>what does this mean?
08:37<alex_>what does net_frame_freq do?
08:38<@peter1138>i means client #71 is slow, and you should try increasing net_frame_freq to a higher value
08:38<alex_>"slow" refers to what?
08:39<alex_>slow processor?
08:41<Rubidium>I presume slow processor or it must have a latency of more than 2 seconds
08:41|-|Digitalfox_Notebook [] has quit [Quit: ChatZilla [Firefox]]
08:42<alex_>and how does increasing net_frame_freq allow laggy clients to connect?
08:42<alex_>Client #71 is dropped because the client did not respond for more than 4 game-days
08:43<Smoovious>generally, if net_frame_freq is too low, and 2 clients are running at significantly different speeds, say, a 733Mhz vs a 3Ghz computer..., you could end up w ith t he situation where the 733Mhz c omputer issues a command for an action it did, but the 3Ghz computer has already passed that frame and can't execute the command
08:43<Rubidium>increasing net_frame_freq lowers the load at the client slightly, which may cause the client to still keep up with you
08:43<Smoovious>so setting frame_freq, will add a delay or lag, for the command to be executed, so they stay in s ync
08:44<Rubidium>Smoovious: that is bullshit
08:44[~]Smoovious shrugs.
08:44<Smoovious>tis the way it appears to me
08:46<Rubidium>Smoovious: it just means that the server sends the accumulated commands (from all clients) every net_frame_freq frames
08:46<Rubidium>and the clients can NEVER be a frame further than the server
08:46<Rubidium>they can only be behind
08:47<Rubidium>but if it shows that slow message it usually means the computer is too slow to play the game
08:47<Smoovious>note I didn't specifiy which was server o r client... a nd otherwisse, the rest o f that supports m y 'delay or lag' part
08:47<Rubidium>as alex_ already said the client was dropped because it was too slow
08:47<Rubidium>Smoovious: the "can't execute the command" is totally crap
08:48<Rubidium>commands are always send to the server and then distributed to the clients and THEN, when the server says so, executed
08:48<Smoovious>well, if I find the explanation of that again, that I read which described i t that way, I'll mention it
08:50<alex_>net_frame_freq increases the sync updates timer
08:50<alex_>so its its like 2 atm
08:50<alex_>and i set it too like 10
08:50<alex_>means less load on clients, but a big burst of data from the server end?
08:51<alex_>every sync cycle?
08:52<Eddi|zuHause3>at values like 10 the game gets pretty unplayable, because commands get very delayed
08:52<Smoovious>not that unplayable... it isn't a first-person-shooter after all

15:54<Eddi|zuHause3>it's definitely dark outside
15:55<Eddi|zuHause3>but in finland, the sun is probably still up :p
15:56<Wezz6400>well, do you define night as night, or as evening ;)

16:11<Eddi|zuHause3>Rubidium: yes, timezones also matter, but the summer time makes the problem worse
16:11<Eddi|zuHause3>those were the days, when each village had its own timezone :p
16:12<Eddi|zuHause3>i think they were abolished in the 19th century in germany
16:12<Eddi|zuHause3>most pressure against "local timezones" came from the rail company, because it was impossible to create proper train schedules

16:20<Priski>it would be nice if we all just used one timezone, it would make some things easier
16:21<Wezz6400>very true, however that would mean that half the planet would live at night and sleep during the day
16:21<Wezz6400>that's not gonna work very well I think
16:22<Sacro>Wezz6400: time is an illusion
16:22<Sacro>lunchtime doubly so...
16:22<legoscia>it might work. i've read about a culture (forgot which) where they start counting the hours at 6 in the evening, so they have shifted 6 hours already
16:23<Sacro>i prefer using swatch time

16:23<Eddi|zuHause3>yeah, we should all live after Zulu time :p
16:23<Priski>Wezz6400, i really don't think so cause then just word 'night', etc... would mean different thing on different places
16:23<Eddi|zuHause3>(= UTC, i believe)
16:23<Wezz6400>Priski maybe so
16:24<Sacro>i use "night" whatever time it is
16:24<Wezz6400>but the earth isn't gonna stop rotating so people would be living in the dark
16:24<Priski>I really don't see why this has to do anything to "people living in the dark"
16:24<Eddi|zuHause3>but this would be the end of all experiments like summer time
16:25<Eddi|zuHause3>you won't shift regularly scheduled times by an hour every half year
16:25<Priski>another thing that bugs me is the gregorian calender system
16:26<Eddi|zuHause3>why, what is wrong with it?
16:27<Rubidium>and what do you suggest as an alternative?
16:30<Wezz6400>hmmmm, cheeese *drool*
16:30<Eddi|zuHause3>cheese is bäähh...
16:30<Wezz6400>I homerdrooled, therefore cheese is good :P
16:31<Priski>well mostly is inaccuracy with rotation of earth, and some other issues with weekday rotation etc
16:32<Eddi|zuHause3>Priski: that is not an answer to either question.
16:32<Priski>I cant find the suggestion which I some time ago bumped into on net
16:33<Priski>I'm busy now with my night-time-noodles, I just flooded my plate all over kitchen
16:33|-|lolman [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
16:34<Eddi|zuHause3>that is the poorest excuse i heard all month
16:34<Priski>yeah I know
16:35<Rubidium>Priski: as long as the number of earth rotations per rotation of the earth around the sun cannot be expressed in a natural number and the number of earth rotations per rotation around the sun cannot be divided into a natural number that is between say 5 and 10 there is NO calendar system that magically "solves" your issues.
16:37<Priski>I know, there always will be a need an leap-day, leap-week, or leap-something an all calendars
16:38<ln->not if we don't care about the correlation between time and sunshine anymore.
16:40<Priski>but it would be nice if (or interesting at most) to start a year same weekday every year, and all holidays etc would occur on same weekday so things like planning holidays way ahead in work would be easier. But I don't really know if that is even worth trying
16:41<Rubidium>Priski: the problem would be that they are going to "replan" all the holidays to be in the weekend
16:41<ln->changes like that are so much easier to introduce when you're e.g. the emperor of rome.
16:42<Priski>Rubidium, very likely, but no-one really knows how well it would work
16:43<Rubidium>having more "workdays" because the holidays are in the weekend is worse that your planning issue (IMO)
16:44<Eddi|zuHause3>"and all holidays etc would occur on same weekday" <- that is already with a lot of holidays (easter, etc.)
16:44<Eddi|zuHause3>the holidays that are based on a lunar calender
16:44<Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause3: yeah, but they are going to do it with christmas too
16:45<Eddi|zuHause3>Priski: do you have any idea how long it took until most governments adjusted to the gregorian calendar?
16:45<Eddi|zuHause3>how long do you think it will take to change that to another random calender, when the current system runs great?
16:46<Rubidium>and more working days because of christmas not being on a week day and not being paid for the free day because christmas is a week day is worse than Priski's planning issue ;)
16:46<Priski>a long time

16:48<Priski>ahh that day (looked up in wiki)
16:48<Eddi|zuHause3>it's more like 49 days (=7 weeks), but they count the first and the last day, so it makes 50

19:30<RichK67>commuter airport is now loaded from newgrf, and the newgrf FSM works - helis and a/c fly!!! :)
19:31<Sacro>does that mean i can make a new airport?
19:31<RichK67>yup - with whatever graphics you want
19:32<Sacro>ooh, fun
19:32<Smoovious>a slingshot with a ramp
19:32<RichK67>ok, there are some minor glitches... cant save it, being one ;)
19:32<RichK67>thats next on the list
19:37<CIA-1>OpenTTD: richk * r10738 /branches/NewGRF_ports/ (17 files in 4 dirs):
19:37<CIA-1>OpenTTD: [NewGRF_ports] -Feature: FSMblockmap class added. Basic FSM import complete.
19:37<CIA-1>OpenTTD: Need to handle multiple blocks on import. Aircraft controller recoded to work
19:37<CIA-1>OpenTTD: with new 128 bit blocks. Still need to write saveload for new blocks.
19:37<CIA-1>OpenTTD: rb_airport2.grf updated. Commuter airport FSM working.
19:39<Smoovious>yeah, saving would be good
19:41<Smoovious>oh, you've seen my rail interchanges!
19:46<Phazorx>hmm... no idea what FSM is
19:46<Phazorx>any info on that on wiki?
19:46<RichK67>only the briefest of descriptions on the wiki
19:47<Phazorx>RichK67: can you enlighten me plz ?
19:47<Smoovious>at least what the acronym means?
19:47<RichK67>the newFSMports branch is where im developing the ability to load in custom designed (air/sea/road)ports
19:48<Rubidium>FSM => finite state machine
19:48<RichK67>FSM = finite state machine... the thing that moves the vehicles around
19:48<Smoovious>yeah, having a nice long loading dock would be great for trucks
19:49<Phazorx>hmm... a different managing technique for aitports i can see a point fo that
19:49<Phazorx>since on ground planes avoid visual collisions, but for ships/rvs cant really see where that comes handy
19:49<RichK67>im itching to design a dockyard with multiple loading docks
19:50<Phazorx>and are they treated as different platfroms in RR station?
19:50<Phazorx>or just an eyecandy?
19:51<Phazorx>it would be coll to have dedicated dock per cargo type tho
19:51<RichK67>far more active than a RR station...
19:51<Phazorx>makes great scense to me at least
19:53<Phazorx>will that SM allow to select a manager model for airports, like reassigning slots to different vehicle types, changing queuing, or general routing withing?
19:56<RichK67>you would be able to code a lot of that within the .grf file, but it is *complicated* :)
20:05<Phazorx>you should see current openrrdcoop game with 6lane one way tracks and 1500 trains on it, that is complicated :)
20:05<Phazorx>but all just set of basic elementsd
20:06<Phazorx>which is probably how grf work would be...r ather tidious than complex
20:06<Rubidium>FSMs get complex pretty easily
20:06<Phazorx>and i'm just wondering what exactl FSM will allow to be done... what features/perks etc
20:07<Rubidium>FSMs are for controlling vehicle movement within the "station"
20:07<Phazorx>i figured that, but will a player has a choice of preset models
20:07<Rubidium>it basically makes sure you can efficiently route vehicles in the station without getting deadlocks (if coded correctly that is)
20:07<Phazorx>or will be able to build one?
20:08<Rubidium>as preset as they are in the grf
20:08<Phazorx>swicth between?
20:09<+glx>for the user it will be like current airports, but you can have more possible layout (depending on the grf coders)
20:09<Phazorx>say there is international airport, 4 landing strips, 6 plane slots 2 chopper slots
20:09<Rubidium>oh, and you can rotate the airports though
20:09<Rubidium>Phazorx: if you load the grf that has them
20:09|-|Bjarni [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
20:10<+glx>you can have "holes" in the airport too
20:10<Phazorx>what if there will be one that turns off landingstrips or reassingls them to be 2in 2 out rather than pait og in/ou on each side, etc ?
20:10<Phazorx>so... not on a fly onyl as parameter or different grf set ?
20:10<Phazorx>glx: i see
20:11<Phazorx>i was under impression aside of rotation this is how its done now
20:11<Phazorx>GRFs define fucntionality. timing, quieing, slot exchange order wtc
20:11<+glx>yes it defines the FSM
20:12<+glx>and the layout
20:12<Phazorx>so i guess FSM framework is more comprehensive than hardcoded as it was ?
20:17<Rubidium>I fail to interpret what you mean
20:19<RichK67>system is mainly designed to provide a way of updating / adding new ports/airports etc without having to recode the core
20:20<Phazorx>Rubidium: currently GRFs define how airports work, entirely i presume... with FSM it is still only up to grfs to define functionality... so what exactly would change is user experience?
20:20<RichK67>side benefits are more flexible graphics, rotating airports, asymmetrical airports, etc.
20:20<+glx>[03:09:15] <+glx> for the user it will be like current airports, but you can have more possible layout (depending on the grf coders)
20:20<Rubidium>Phazorx: currently as in trunk or newgrf_ports?
20:20<RichK67>all current OTTD airports are 100% hardcoded
20:20<Phazorx>in trunk i guess
20:21<Phazorx>RichK67: in code or grf?
20:21<Phazorx>i see
20:21<Rubidium>Phazorx: there are no newgrf coded airports yet
20:21<Phazorx>now it makes sense :)
20:21<Rubidium>(in trunk that is)
20:21<RichK67>well, one ;)
20:21<RichK67>and it doesnt quite work ;)
20:28<Rubidium>anyway, I'm going to sleep
