07:12<roboboy>is there a way I can turn wagon speed limits off in a current mp game?
07:12<roboboy>I am the server admin
07:13|-|Gonozal_VIII [] has joined #openttd
07:13<Eddi|zuHause2>roboboy: wagon speed limit should not be changed during a game
07:14<Eddi|zuHause2>it is a sure way to desync
07:14<roboboy>but can it be turned off in SP and reloaded
07:14<roboboy>its a coop game
07:14<dihedral>why do you want to turn it off?
07:14<Eddi|zuHause2>can still have nasty sideeffects, especially if newgrfs are involved
07:15<roboboy>we are not playing for realism
07:15<Eddi|zuHause2>e.g. the dbsetxl loads different wagon sets depending on wagonspeedlimit setting
07:15<roboboy>I dont think the UKRS does
07:18<Eddi|zuHause2>anyway, i would not recommend it
07:18<Eddi|zuHause2>you can try...

11:19<Digitalfox>So much silence :(
11:20[~]Gonozal_VIII stares at the silence
11:20<Hendikins>Silence is golden, but my eyes still see...
11:21<Gonozal_VIII>the silence stares back!
11:21<Eddi|zuHause2>it's a lie, silence is green
11:21<Eddi|zuHause2>silence green is people (err...)
11:22<Digitalfox>It's almost Christmas... Still don't know what present to give to my girlfriend :(
11:22<Eddi|zuHause2>flowers and jewelry
11:22<Digitalfox>Why is that women presents are hard to choice?
11:22<Eddi|zuHause2>it's trivially easy
11:23<Digitalfox>that was what i give her last Christmas
11:23<Digitalfox>I'm out of ideas
11:23<Eddi|zuHause2>so what? more flowers, more expensive jewelry
11:24<Digitalfox>Eddi|zuHause2: But but but... Yeahi guess you're right ...
11:24<Gonozal_VIII>they never have enough green or shiny stuff
11:24<Eddi|zuHause2>try to not make the growth exponential ;)
11:25<Digitalfox>I know I'll give her a new laptop :) Oh wait i won't than she will have more reasons to be online in MSN and talking to me :(
11:26|-||Bastiaan| [~kvirc@] has quit [Quit: KVIrc 3.2.6 Anomalies]
11:26<Gonozal_VIII>give her a laptop that can't do anything else
11:27<Digitalfox>There is a laptop that doesn't support MSN?? Oh you mean using Linux right?
11:27<Digitalfox>Not a bad idea
11:28<+glx>linux has msn (amsn)
11:28<Gonozal_VIII>ah you mean it's a bad thing when she talks to you over msn?
11:28<Eddi|zuHause2>then you are surely going to not spend another christmas with her :p
11:28<Digitalfox>damn, you killed my present glx
11:29<SmatZ>don't give her anything and break with her instead :-p
11:29<Eddi|zuHause2>(but for all i know, that could be your intention)
11:29<Digitalfox>Gonozal_VIII: Well she is very controller, she wants to know every step i give.. :(
11:30<+glx>are you sure she's not here?
11:30|-|Vikthor [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
11:30<Gonozal_VIII>... i know that kind
11:30<Digitalfox>Let's say i can't say I'm ugly, so when we go out there's always other girls messing with me and she explodes every time with a discussion
11:31<Digitalfox>Also she is a PR so i go to a lot of presentations and partys, and there's always many women alone o-O
11:32<Gonozal_VIII>a relationship can't work without trust
11:32<Digitalfox>I know, i tell her that every week :(
11:32<Eddi|zuHause2>if a man stops looking at a beautiful woman passing by, he is dead
11:33|-|Progman [] has joined #openttd
11:33<Eddi|zuHause2>(that's a quote i heard on the radio a few weeks ago about relationship between men and women)
11:33<Digitalfox>Eddi|zuHause2: Absolutely right.. But she tells me " You want me to start looking to other men ? "
11:33|-|Wolf01 [] has joined #openttd
11:33<Eddi|zuHause2>(it was even said by a woman)
11:33<Gonozal_VIII>they do that anyways
11:34<Digitalfox>hello Wolf
11:35<Eddi|zuHause2>Digitalfox: you answer: Who do you think about while we are [...]
11:36<Digitalfox>My question is why do women always think that if we look to a beautiful women, that means she ( Wife or girlfriend ) is not so pretty?? My girlfriend is beautiful but still I'm always looking to other beautiful women, i can't stop that o_O
11:37<Digitalfox>It's like it's in my blood
11:37<Gonozal_VIII>everybody does that, even the women
11:37<Digitalfox>And i explain that to her, but she always says " You want me to start looking to other men ? "
11:37<Digitalfox>But i'll try to say what Eddi|zuHause2 told
11:37<Eddi|zuHause2>that radio show was about a book that has been published "men ask, women answer", and the matching reverse book
11:38<Eddi|zuHause2>it was about exactly those kind of discussions
11:38<Gonozal_VIII>it's tricky when women ask something...
11:38<Eddi|zuHause2>men have to look after _every_ beatiful women passing by
11:39<Gonozal_VIII>always think around 10 corners before you answer
11:39<Eddi|zuHause2>women have to think about other men in bed
11:39<Digitalfox>Eddi|zuHause2: "women have to think about other men in bed" I surely hope it's not my case, it would be bad for my ego lol
11:39<Eddi|zuHause2>it also contained other typical questions, like "why do women never go alone to the toilet"
11:40<Eddi|zuHause2>Digitalfox: yeah, same way as it is bad for her ego that you look after other women
11:40<Eddi|zuHause2>you have to consider that, before answering ;)
11:41<Digitalfox>no no no, there's no problem if she looks to another men, i do the same with another women.. What can't happen is having thought about what we are looking at..
11:41<Digitalfox>Well she can't, but i well...
11:42<Eddi|zuHause2>well, the problem is, that is not the issue
11:43<Digitalfox>Anyway, my biggest problem is she doesn't accept i can find other women beautiful, it's like i'm cheating on her..
11:44<Digitalfox>So after 2 years of relationship we still discuss a lot about it
11:45<Digitalfox>I'll tell you this, if we were to broke up, i'll would be 1 year of peace and quiet without any other girlfriend, just a *special women friendship*
11:47|-|Mattrat [] has joined #openttd
11:51<Digitalfox>Want to tells us your experience with women Sacro?
11:52<Sacro>oh you don't want to know
11:52<Digitalfox>It's that bad?
11:53<Eddi|zuHause2>one girl he was with got committed into a mental hospital a week later ;)
11:53<Digitalfox>oh yeah i remember some months ago that conversation
11:53<Sacro>Eddi|zuHause2: that was after she stole £220 out my account and then tried to commit suicide
11:54<Digitalfox>damn Sacro that's bad luck..
11:54<Digitalfox>And since then no new women in your life?
11:55<Eddi|zuHause2>that was several years ago, i do hope he had some :p
11:56<Digitalfox>He's not replying so maybe not..
11:56<Sacro>my first girlfriend dumped me over 7 years ago
11:56<Sacro>she just got engaged#
11:57<Digitalfox>She was 7 years alone?
11:57|-|Mattrat [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:57<Eddi|zuHause2>she was 7 back then :p
11:57<Sacro>errr... no
11:57<Gonozal_VIII>makes sense

11:59<Digitalfox>What a big laugh i just had :)
12:00<Sacro>right, leving work now
12:00<Sacro>back later
12:01<Hendikins>I left work 2 hours early because my duty manager was a prick
12:04<Hendikins>I signed off duty "unwell", in order to leave him unable to do anything about it.

13:52<Draakon>hi guys
13:53<SmatZ>hi Draakon
13:54|-|Gonozal_VIII [] has joined #openttd
13:55<Draakon>is it possibile to use BuildOTTD somehow compile a patched trunk without using patch file?
13:55|-|Sogard [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
13:55|-|Sogard^ changed nick to Sogard
13:56<Rubidium>Draakon: yes and no
13:56<+glx>not directly as buildottd always use a clean trunk and a patch
13:56<Rubidium>you can't use BuildOTTD, but you can use the compiler and stuff that gets delivered with BuildOTTD
13:56<+glx>but with buildottd you have all needed tools to do it without buildottd :)
14:00<Gonozal_VIII>bah, that other guy on my router has been downloading at full speed for two days now... irc, msn and icq keep disconnecting
14:00<Rubidium>slap him or your provider
14:00|-|Barry [] has joined #openttd
14:01<Draakon>you own the router? disconnect him
14:01<Gonozal_VIII>50gb traffic...
14:01<+glx>learn him to limit bandwidth usage
14:01<Gonozal_VIII>i'll try blocking port 1-65534
14:01<+glx>mainly uploading
14:02<Draakon>hmm wiki contains info for Msys commands?
14:03<Draakon>oh i got mingw instead :P
14:04<Draakon>but still can i use BuildOTTD mingw to stat compiling right away or i must do those configure stuffs first?
14:04<Gonozal_VIII>hmm upload... yes i noticed that everything stops working when there's too much upload
14:05<Prof_Frink>Gonozal_VIII: We went over this yesterday
14:07<kyevan>Intercontinental airports need more helipads >_>
14:07<Draakon>wait till NewGRF_Ports get done
14:07|-|Brianetta [] has joined #openttd
14:07<Draakon>then you can add them by GRFS
14:07<Draakon>or modifi old airports
14:08<Draakon>or is it done already?

14:56<TheBlasphemer>What to do if I've got a game running on my dedicated server that's throwing everyone out of the game with desync errors after approximately 30 secs of playing ?
14:56<TheBlasphemer>Should I report it to someone? send the savegame to someone ?
14:57<Rubidium>what version?
14:57<TheBlasphemer>0.6.0 beta2
14:57<Rubidium>how do you get into the state that it desyncs from a 'cold' start?
14:58<TheBlasphemer>load the savegame :P?
14:59<TheBlasphemer>Don't suppose there's a way to have a kind of stack-trace-log for each random-number call to compare, is there ;)?
14:59<Rubidium>there is
14:59<TheBlasphemer>ooooooh, do tell me :)
14:59<TheBlasphemer>I would love to get my hands dirty (6)
15:00<Rubidium>for 'trunk' it is ./enable-desync-debug=2 (but that wasn't in 0.6.0-beta2)
15:00<Rubidium>for 0.6.0-beta2: src/core/random_func.hpp:18
15:01<TheBlasphemer>So gotta recompile :P?
15:01<TheBlasphemer>bugger ;)
15:02<TheBlasphemer>You want to have a look too :)? (You'd probably be faster :/)
15:02<Rubidium>because it kinda slows down the game quite a lot when you make it runtime configurable
15:02<TheBlasphemer>depends how you do it, I suppose :P
15:02<Rubidium>I'm most likely not faster at this moment
15:02<TheBlasphemer>k, will give it a shot :)
15:03<Rubidium>but you can reproduce it easily by loading a savegame?
15:03<TheBlasphemer>Let me just do another cold boot and try for you :)
15:05<TheBlasphemer>I've done this several times, and all times it desynched almost instantly, and this one time I am about to actually go and find where that bug is, it refuses :S

15:10<+glx>it autosaves each month
15:10<Rubidium>glx: wrong...
15:11<Rubidium>it will dump each random number
15:11<Rubidium>and it will only be usefull if the first client desyncs
15:11<Rubidium>and it will generate a hell of a lot of log to the console
15:11<Rubidium>1 MB-ish per second
15:11<TheBlasphemer>hmmmz :P
15:12<TheBlasphemer>ok, that's a bit too much :/
15:12<+glx>that's usually a big slowdown :)
15:12<TheBlasphemer>Normally I probably would've done it (it auto-pauses when no clients anyway)
15:13<TheBlasphemer>But it's mainly a webserver, and it has enough trouble doing that alone at certain times ;)

15:35<Rubidium>when Windows Update messes up your .NET install there is no way to properly deinstall .NET (except format)
15:35<TheBlasphemer>Rubidium: I hate .NET as much as Macintosh, but Visual Studio is great :/
15:35<TheBlasphemer>And besides, what's wrong with having the runtimes on your system :/?
15:35<Rubidium>and a messed up .NET install means Visual Studio doesn't want to do anything either
15:35<+glx>TheBlasphemer: then you don't use express versions
15:36<+glx>ie 1 IDE for each language
15:36<Prof_Frink>Yay, stable
15:36<TheBlasphemer>Ofcourse I don't use the express versions ;)
15:36<Prof_Frink>12 updates since I last could be bothered
15:36<TheBlasphemer>I won a legit copy of VS2005 with a MS contest a while ago, and I've got loads of places to get VS2008 (although I must admit those are less-legal than the former ;))
15:39[~]Rubidium has to work with VS2005 stuff and is happy he doesn't need to use it at home.
15:42<TheBlasphemer>What do you use it for at work then ?
15:42<TheBlasphemer>I could agree on the fact that all the .NET based languages, and shit like MFC are the devils' own,
15:42<Rubidium>webdevelopment stuff, SQL aggregrate functions and some stand alone applications
15:42<TheBlasphemer>but VC++ is godlike :)
15:45<Rubidium>ASP(.NET) just plainly sucks due to utter stallness
15:46<kyevan>TheBlasphemer: Well, why don't you mail me a bunch of cash so I can buy VS2008, then?
15:46<TheBlasphemer>Agreed, but ASP(.NET) is a language, the fact that ASP.NET sucks doesn't make VS2005 a crappy product ;)

15:47<Rubidium>just forget to mention that you "fix" more than 1 bug in a bugfix, but only mention one of those
15:48<TheBlasphemer>but VS2005 is pretty decent, and I haven't found a good alternative for it yet...

15:48<TheBlasphemer>And Vista is pretty darn spiffy too, and it has some pretty good changes in the back-end too, not only in the front end....
15:48<Gonozal_VIII>the only reason i'm using windows is compatibility with almost every hardware/software... vista doesn't even have that
15:48<TheBlasphemer>Did you hear me say that MS products didn't have bugs :P? Did you ever hear me mention IE in this conversation ;)?
15:49<TheBlasphemer>Gonozal_VIII: Most software will run (more than on wine, probably), and as for hardware compatiblity: you can't blame MS for that...
15:50<TheBlasphemer>I'm not entirely satisfied with the current driver situation, with all vendors refusing to write proper ones
15:50<TheBlasphemer>But at least the driver architecture got a much needed overhaul :/
15:51<Rubidium>the linux driver subsystem gets architecture changes all the time, not once every 10-or-so-years when they decided that it is so utterly crappy that the support people can't support it anymore
15:51<Rubidium>hmm... and talking about their documentation...
15:52<TheBlasphemer>Rubidium: Can't blame MS for making backwards compatibility a high priority :/
15:52<TheBlasphemer>Rubidium: Point me to something that you think is missing in their documentation...
15:52<Rubidium>you can easily find how to secure Windows NT 4.0 in the VS2005 help, but how to write secure stuff for something more recent than 2000 is hard to find.
15:52<TheBlasphemer>I've never had any complaints about MSDN or the Platform SDK

15:53<kyevan>It's easy

15:53<Rubidium>kyevan: but that isn't in the manual, see my point?
15:53<Prof_Frink>kyevan: It's even easier than that
15:53<TheBlasphemer>Most things that apply for Windows NT 4 still apply for Windows 2000, XP, and Vista

15:59<Rubidium>you would've hoped that that would work
16:00<TheBlasphemer>Well, I'm not sure what the exact situation was, but it might be that someone else on the network has locked the file or something :/
16:01<Rubidium>nope.. just copying it from one PC to the other and not being able to open the project file
16:02<TheBlasphemer>Don't suppose VS2005SP1 was on one of the boxes and VS2005SP0 on the other or something like that ?

16:04<TheBlasphemer>Ok, let's just rephrase this in a way that you can't possibly disagree with:

16:08<TheBlasphemer>2 is a memory hog :/
16:08<Gonozal_VIII>but it's new
16:08<TheBlasphemer>So ?
16:08<Gonozal_VIII>what happened to 2.1?
16:09<TheBlasphemer>Ask mozilla :P
16:09<Digitalfox>Well it never happened to me, firefox using more than 150MB of RAM, and yes i use lot's of extensions
16:09<Digitalfox>And with 1 GB of RAM in all my machines doesn't look a lot
16:10<Gonozal_VIII>i had that with ff 1 sometimes but that could be disabled
16:10<Digitalfox>It seems the problem is after having firefox opened with many tabs after some hours it starts eating memory
16:10<Digitalfox>But i nver had 500MB of RAM used like some guys say
16:10<Gonozal_VIII>there was some well hidden setting to disable that
16:11<Digitalfox>It's about the cache used
16:11<Digitalfox>The advantage is that when you click" back" the page is still in memory
16:11<Gonozal_VIII>sometimes it used 300+mb of my 512...
16:12<TheBlasphemer>DigitalFox: I've actually had that several times, FF using +-700mb :/
16:12[~]Rubidium wonders why people always think using much memory is always bad for an application
16:12<Gonozal_VIII>it is when it uses so much that everything gets slow
16:12<Rubidium>I really do not care when FF uses 900 MB, but only when it would free memory as soon as another application needs it
16:12<TheBlasphemer>Rubidium: the fact that it uses 700mb of pagefile doesn't bother me, it's the fact that I can actually feel it getting slower with the hour
16:12<Digitalfox>Well Rubidium i don't mind apllications using all my memory.. Hey i paid it to be used not unused
16:13<TheBlasphemer>Opening a new tab used to take a full 3 seconds if I've had it open for some houts
16:13<TheBlasphemer>I've been this --> <-- close to switching to IE7 because it didn't feel that slow :/
16:13<Digitalfox>It's like Vista, people complain that with 2 GB of RAM it caches it all ( uses it all ) to make aplications load faster, well i don't mind using all the memory..
16:14<Gonozal_VIII>not only ff itself got slow, every click took some seconds then...

18:53<kyevan>(Define long as "at least one non-entrance tunnel tile on either side of the crossing point", I think?)
18:55<Eddi|zuHause2>that is way too short...
18:55<Gonozal_VIII>well... a slope is only 1 tile long
18:56<Eddi|zuHause2>and this would be completely not an issue if you have arbitrary rails in tunnels
18:56<Gonozal_VIII>and that's the tunnel/bridge thing i was talking about^^
18:56<Eddi|zuHause2>(me looks in a definite direction ;))
18:58<kyevan>Eddi|zuHause2: And signals, of course
18:58<kyevan>And while we're at it, let's allow road junctions, too :P
18:59<Eddi|zuHause2>"arbitrary rails" does include signals
18:59<Eddi|zuHause2>but not road crossings, as those are road tiles
18:59<Gonozal_VIII>but no bridges or tunnels inside the tunnel^^
19:00<kyevan>What if we accidently tunnel into D'ni and need to bridge across the cavern!?
19:00<Eddi|zuHause2>anyway, there would be no technical limitation that would forbid road tiles
19:00<Eddi|zuHause2>what's a D'ni?
19:00<Gonozal_VIII>how does that work anyways? is there a seperate small map array attached to the tunnel entry or something?
19:01<Eddi|zuHause2>there were different ideas about that
19:02<Eddi|zuHause2>the thing i found most promising was that there are submaps of like 16x16 size, which are dynamically allocated

19:09<Eddi|zuHause2>iirc there was a patch somewhere
19:10|-|Osai changed nick to Osai^zZz
19:15<kyevan>When do towns start accepting goods?
19:16<Gonozal_VIII>when 8/8 goods are within the station catchment area
19:16<Gonozal_VIII>use the ? tool on the buildings
19:16<Eddi|zuHause2>generally, you need at least 3 office buildings
19:18<kyevan>Is there any way to encourage those to start growing? >_>
19:18<Gonozal_VIII>provide some passenger/mail service
19:18<Eddi|zuHause2>towns grow if you have active transportation
19:18<Eddi|zuHause2>depending on climate, you need to deliver food and water also
19:18<Tefad>even if it's just a circle within the town itself ; )
19:19<Gonozal_VIII>doesn't matter where to
19:19<Tefad>if initially it is a loss, it won't take too long to squeak out a profit.
19:19<+glx>just put a line bus in the town
19:19<kyevan>Oh, I already have a little bus route running
19:20<Gonozal_VIII>you get the goods accepting buildings only on roads with sidewalk
19:20<kyevan>I mean, is there a way to encourage it to build office buildings rather than more homes and such.
19:20<Gonozal_VIII>yes, fund new buildings... that expands the sidewalked area for some time
19:20<kyevan>Gonozal_VIII: Oh? How do roads decide if they should have sidewalks or not?
19:20<Tefad>i think there are three levels of town
19:21<Tefad>one is low density, one is mixed density, and the last is high density
19:21<Tefad>reflected by the roads
19:21<Tefad>they radiate outward from the town center as concentric circles, like a bullseye
19:21<Tefad>for small towns, you don't get much out of it.
19:22<Tefad>however you can dump a wad of cash into the town to temporarily upgrade the roads so the buildings are constructed
19:22<Eddi|zuHause2>there are 4 levels
19:22<+glx>and if you want to kill a town, just remove the road tile under the sign :)
19:22<Eddi|zuHause2>lights, trees, pavements, none
19:22<Tefad>but this doesn't mean the town won't decide to destroy it after the roads shrivel back to normal.
19:22<kyevan>Oh, huh. I didn't know you could do that.
19:23<Tefad>it's usually a large wad.. like half a million dollar/euros
19:23<Gonozal_VIII>you can't increase the effect with funding multiple times
19:23<Tefad>maybe smaller, i forget.
19:23<Eddi|zuHause2>"fund new buildings" in the local authorities window
19:23<Tefad>usually it's better to run small bus circuits in town
19:24<Tefad>or to neighbor if close enough
19:24<Eddi|zuHause2>it is a good thing to do if you can't deliver food
19:24<kyevan>Tefad: Well, all neighbors are off the map >_>
19:24<Gonozal_VIII>don't use fund local road construction... i think the only use of that is to annoy opponents with busses in the town...
19:24<Tefad>kyevan: you just have one town?
19:25<Tefad>i didn't know it went that small.
19:25<Gonozal_VIII>64^2 is fun :-)
19:25<Eddi|zuHause2>i only ever once played such a small map...
19:25<Tefad>good for PSPs and the like i imagine.
19:25<+glx>I do road only on small map
19:25<Eddi|zuHause2>it was a test game to find out why PBS were not working like they should
19:25<Gonozal_VIII>also hard to get some money with lv4
19:26<Eddi|zuHause2>i actually did find the reason ;)
19:26<Gonozal_VIII>hmm yay pbs works now?
19:26<Eddi|zuHause2>not now... a year ago
19:26<+glx>64² may be very hard because industry chains may be incomplete
19:27<Eddi|zuHause2>the PBS patch died with the cpp conversion
19:27<Gonozal_VIII>actually i don't need pbs much but a presignal type that ignores exits that can't be reached (90 or 135°) would be nice
19:27<+glx><Eddi|zuHause2> the PBS patch died with the cpp conversion <-- like many patches ;)
19:27<Eddi|zuHause2>exactly my thought ;)
19:28<+glx>Gonozal_VIII: but these exits are used for priority stuff :)
19:28<Eddi|zuHause2>KUDr originally joined to create new PBS, but then he got "distracted" ;)
19:29<Gonozal_VIII>yes, i don't mean to change the general behaviour of the presignals but to add a different type that ignores those exits
19:29<Eddi|zuHause2>what i need is 2 layers of presignals (for independent bi-directional traffic)
19:29<+glx>the new PBS needs to be pathfinder independant
19:29<Eddi|zuHause2>and a combo signal that forwards the exit signal status, but not assumes it itself
19:30<Eddi|zuHause2>so trains that already entered the junction are guaranteed to exit
19:30<Gonozal_VIII>i'm still strongly into the idea of removing the pathfinder in favour of programmable switches
19:30<kyevan>I want fully programable signals :P
19:30<Tefad>finite state machines ftw?

19:32<Gonozal_VIII>yay :D
19:32|-|Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
19:33<Eddi|zuHause2>Gonozal_VIII: the problem with your suggestion is the huge amount of micromanagement that would require
19:33<Gonozal_VIII>normal behaviour should remain as default option...
19:34<Tefad>i vote for constructing blocks as a unit
19:34<Eddi|zuHause2>yeah, sure, but you have no choice of transition steps...
19:34<Eddi|zuHause2>either full or none
19:35<Tefad>because what i said totally made sense in my head
19:35<Tefad>but i can't express it in words : x
19:35<Gonozal_VIII>a switch is a tile with more then one rail on it... it has a maximum of 4 directions in and out...
19:36<Tefad>but eight tracks
19:36<Gonozal_VIII>ne, nw, se, sw
19:36<Eddi|zuHause2>no, 6 tracks
19:36<Tefad>right, there's no half like roads n/m
19:36<Gonozal_VIII>trains can't enter or leave the tile anywhere else
19:37<Eddi|zuHause2>a train entering from one direction can leave in 3 others
19:37<Gonozal_VIII>they can do so at 3 different angles for each direction but that doesn't matter
19:37<Tefad>not all the time
19:37<Gonozal_VIII>yes eddi
19:37<Tefad>most tracks have one entrance one exit
19:37<Eddi|zuHause2>yes, it depends on where the train comes from, and 90° turns setting
19:37<Gonozal_VIII>it has a maximum of three options
19:38<kyevan>Wait, I though you could do 90 degree turns by default?
19:38<kyevan>So that would mean you have a max of /5/ exits.
19:38<Tefad>five? lies
19:38<Gonozal_VIII>no, that's also 3
19:38<Tefad>90deg is between two tiles
19:38<Gonozal_VIII>180° would be 4
19:38<Eddi|zuHause2>kyevan: no, 90° off means you reduce the number of choices from 3 to 2
19:39<kyevan>you can do 90, 45, 0, -45, -90,
19:39<Gonozal_VIII>depending on what tracks are on that tile
19:39<Eddi|zuHause2>no, kyevan
19:39<kyevan>Assumeing a-fulltracked tile
19:39<Gonozal_VIII>90 and 45 leads to the same exit
19:39<Tefad>the 90's carry into the next tile
19:39<kyevan>left, right, left-at-an-angle, right-at-an-angle, foward?
19:39<Tefad>where if 90 is turned off the next tile has ones less option.
19:40<Eddi|zuHause2>no, kyevan, at each tile border you only ever have 3 choices
19:40<Tefad>90 is two 45's
19:40<Eddi|zuHause2>the other choices already were at the previous tile border
19:40<kyevan>Er, dur, I'm an idiot :P
19:40<Tefad>if 90 is off, two 45s in the same direction can't happen : )
19:40<kyevan>Never mind :P
19:40<Tefad>(relative to train)
19:40<Tefad>yup yup.
19:41<Gonozal_VIII>so very limited and easy to understand options for a switch
19:42<Eddi|zuHause2>and several thousand switches in a big network
19:42<Eddi|zuHause2>which you have to program differently for each train
19:43<Eddi|zuHause2>which you also easily can get a thousand of
19:43<Gonozal_VIII>group/shared orders/freight type/something
19:43<Tefad>but only for each block
19:43<Tefad>if a train isn't in the block, why bother computing its rules or whatever
19:44<Eddi|zuHause2>if i have a huge passenger network, i don't have that many shared orders
19:44<Gonozal_VIII>there's always a default rule
19:44<Tefad>or am i not completely understanding what's going on here
19:44<Eddi|zuHause2>Tefad: it's not about computing, it's about setting up
19:45<Gonozal_VIII>default rule = the track that has been there before the single track tile turned into a switch tile
19:45<Tefad>why would you have to set it up per train
19:45<Gonozal_VIII>and you can change that of course
19:45<Eddi|zuHause2>for each new train i build i have to program each switch it may be going to pass to have it take the right direction
19:46<Gonozal_VIII>not necesarily
19:46<Tefad>i thought path finding did that
19:46<Eddi|zuHause2>Tefad: because there is no pathfinder, to let the train decide on its own?
19:46<Gonozal_VIII>there could be a rule "trains that have station x as their next order go left"
19:46<Eddi|zuHause2>Gonozal_VIII said "remove pathfinder"
19:46<+glx><Eddi|zuHause2> for each new train i build i have to program each switch it may be going to pass to have it take the right direction <-- that's how it works IRL IIRC
19:47<Tefad>why not for each train constructed, it compute an automatic path which can be augmented
19:48<Gonozal_VIII>that could be additional help, yes...
19:48<Tefad>or you set up way points
19:48<Tefad>a bunch of them
19:48<Eddi|zuHause2>Gonozal_VIII: "trains that have station x as their next order, y as the subsequent order, z as their ultimate target, speed over 160km/h, run more than 200 ticks late, are less than 60% full and have more than 30 days until the next depot visit"
19:48<Eddi|zuHause2>"except on fridays"
19:49<Gonozal_VIII>extreme case but... yes :D
19:49<Eddi|zuHause2>that is not even extreme...
19:49<+glx>and don't forget to change the rule when you work on the track ;)
19:49<Gonozal_VIII>that could really need the build in pause cheat to be legalised^^
19:50<Eddi|zuHause2>build in pause would be fine, if tracks have a construction time instead
19:50<Eddi|zuHause2>(so you really would be doing "plan in pause")
19:51<Gonozal_VIII>that should be doable as the tracks have the counter thing inside anyways (grass growth patch bla)
19:52<Eddi|zuHause2>track tiles only have a marker "grass or no grass" (i.e. a 1 bit counter), plus stuff for the fences
19:52<Gonozal_VIII>hmm the grass growth on unused track patch has a counter for that... you told me so^^
19:53<Eddi|zuHause2>well, yes, but that is not in trunk :p
19:53<Gonozal_VIII>that countdown part of the patch could go into trunk as countdown until track is finished...
19:53<Eddi|zuHause2>but map space is generally a rare ressource
19:54<Gonozal_VIII>hmm empty tiles have plenty of space right?
19:55|-|Wolf01 [] has quit [Quit: Once again the world is quick to bury me.]
19:55<Eddi|zuHause2>only water tiles have really a lot of space
19:55<Eddi|zuHause2>empty tiles have grass growth, tree growth, rough land etc.
19:56<Gonozal_VIII>they wouldn't need grass or trees when there is a rail being constructed on them
19:56<Gonozal_VIII>more like a farm tile
19:57<Eddi|zuHause2>well, but you would need a marker that you would be building rails, and then storage space for which railtype and trackbits, if signals etc. are to be constructed, and ultimately you store 90% of a regular rail tile in a different tile type...
