00:00<mynetdude>it doesn't? I thought it meant Transport Tycoon... at least thats where the game came from?
00:01<Sacro>it's where it came from
00:01<Sacro>but "Transport Tycoon" is a copyrighted name
00:01<mynetdude>I was just getting to that
00:01<Sacro>as is "Transport Tycoon Deluxe"
00:01<Sacro>so we call it "OpenTTD"
00:01<Sacro>which doesn't stand for anything
00:01<mynetdude>right
00:04<mynetdude>I don't see how porting it to ipod is a breach of license, if he was paid to put it on there for someone then yes I can see a breach there
00:04<Sacro>iPhone?
00:04<Sacro>it depends actually
00:05<Sacro>if it gets released as an official iPhone app then it'd be a breach of the GPL
00:05<Sacro>but then IANAL
00:05<mynetdude>well certainly thats a good point, as long as it isn't released as an official app
00:05<mynetdude>yeah its on an iPhone as the title of the vid says
00:07<Sacro>http://www.ottd.info/page/0/
00:07<Sacro>wtf
00:09<mynetdude>ok thats odd.. I see the ottd pattern background... but whats the opaque white space?
00:12-!-BiO-HaZaRd is now known as Mr_HaZaRd
00:12<Sacro>there's a box where you can go to other pages
00:12<Sacro>but where ot start
00:12<mynetdude>hmm
00:12<mynetdude>I'll refresh
00:15<mynetdude>nothing there works for me all I see is the ottd screen and a blank white box that is opaque... anyway pointless website
00:17<Sacro>mm
00:17<Sacro>maybe
00:17<mynetdude>maybe? It doesn't even work for me
00:17<mynetdude>what browser do you use?
00:18<Sacro>firefox
00:19<mynetdude>ah that would explain it
00:24<mynetdude>alright, you're right simcity classic looks nothing like TTD but the graphic style is from the same era
00:27<mynetdude>yeah I saw that, I went to the page on my other PC... it said "a cake is a lie?"
00:27<mynetdude>err
00:27<mynetdude>anyway I managed to visit the site
00:27<Sacro>yeah
00:29<mynetdude>well playing ottd on a small pda like that is extremely difficult
00:31<Sacro>lol
00:33<mynetdude>I can kinda tell he had some difficulty
00:34<mynetdude>although you can play simcity on a nintendo DS
00:34<Sacro>yeah
00:34<Sacro>i'm tired :(*
00:34<mynetdude>:(
00:34<mynetdude>I was too and still kind of am
00:35<Sacro>tis 5:30 am
00:36<mynetdude>oh wow... you're on the other side of the world
00:36<Sacro>yup
00:43<Sacro>goodnight mynetdude
00:44<mynetdude>nite :)

04:30<Roest>he'll need it, so much has changed since 12180, he can rewrite these patches froms cratch, guess that has a higher success chance

05:56<Alberth>What is the semantics of a PointDimension? (in particular vs the semantics of a Rect). Both are defined in src/core/geometry_type.hpp, and PointDimension is only used in src/texteff.cpp

08:50<Disto>Having trouble with lag in big games from the client
08:50<Roest>as in a program or as the ~200 currently online?
08:51<Eddi|zuHause3>dedicated server will not help with client performance

08:57<Roest>and it's in my patchpack btw
08:57<Disto>ok
08:59<Disto>Roest, does you patch pack mean that all patches are enabled or they can be enabled/disabled as you go
08:59<Roest>some patches are enabled by default, some have options to turnt hem off
08:59<Disto>your*
08:59<+glx>most are switchable
08:59<Disto>Ok
09:00<+glx>Roest: I guess savegame are incompatible with trunk

09:01<Roest>and i guess my shapetown patch isn't clean for that matter either, but since yapp and daylength already broke savegames i didnt care to fix it :)
09:04<Disto>Question: Does the daylength patch means that more is produced per month or is the game just slowed down
09:04<Roest>have to ask someone who's actually playing that pack/patch

10:10<Rubidium>huh?
10:11<Eddi|zuHause3>i second that question :p
10:11<Roest>the people need to know!
10:13<Disto>I compiled the daylength patch and set it to the compatible install of OTTD but it says Version Mismatch on the server list
10:14<Disto>Does that mean everyone will need the patch?
10:14<Rubidium>yes
10:14<Rubidium>as is required with most patches
10:14*Disto sighs.
10:15<Rubidium>0.6.0 should only be played with unmodified 0.6.0 binaries
10:15<Rubidium>otherwise you'll get trouble *all* over the place
10:15<Rubidium>where the most annoying thing would be the desyncs
10:16<Rubidium>that can kick you within a few seconds from the server

11:19<mynetdude|away>hey SmatZ, remember we were talking about the property purchase feature to be used to buy multiple tiles instead of one tile at a time? What if there was a ttdpatch option in the configs or whatever where all the neat on/off configs are available to select whether multi-tile buying is on or off that way :)
11:20-!-mynetdude|away is now known as mynetdude
11:20<SmatZ>mynetdude: there are too many options already
11:21<Eddi|zuHause3>afaik there's already a patch for that
11:21<Eddi|zuHause3>but it was decided against
11:24<mynetdude>there's a patch for it? Is it still available
11:24<mynetdude>yeah so there's too many options doesn't mean one has to use it all or care that its all there
11:25<mynetdude>actually I wonder why we even have property purchase in the game anyway when you can just slap some road/rail tiles in random places
11:26-!-SUSaiyan [~SUSaiyan@cc84863-b.zwoll1.ov.home.nl] has joined #openttd
11:30<Eddi|zuHause3>it's probably horribly outdated
11:32<Ammler>mynetdude: is a clientside patch, iirc
11:34<mynetdude>well the feature is pointless, like I said you can randomly dump a bunch of road/rail sprites over land you want
11:34<mynetdude>but if you were really going to use it, in single player the feature is so useless because you can't select large areas

11:44<Eddi|zuHause3>good luck updating it 7000 revisions ;)
11:46<mynetdude>I know there is a problem using multi-tiled land purchase to prevent unfair multiplayer play
11:46<mynetdude>I still think it should be an optional config you can turn on/off for that, because not all multiplayers are against using multi-tile purchase and besides whats to stop someone from using railroad sprites or whatever
11:51<Eddi|zuHause3>it has been discussed many times, the feature is not going in

14:42<ooo4tom>i'm lost, the size of openttd 0.6 is 1.9 and tonights nightly is 2.9 could this be the issue ?
14:42<@Bjarni>you didn't answer your own question yet
14:42<Eddi|zuHause3>yes i did
14:42<@Bjarni>what is the size of last night's nightly?
14:43<@Bjarni>(presuming it worked last night)
14:43<Eddi|zuHause3>there might be something wrong with the compilefarm if it links to libexpat.so.0 when it should be linking to libexpat.so.1

15:14<Roujin>hey devs. don't hate me, but.. increase map array please?
15:15<SmatZ>Roujin: in what way?
15:15<SmatZ>you can add bytes to _me
15:15<SmatZ>if you want
15:16<Roujin>... for a specific type of tile, or for all tiles?
15:16<Eddi|zuHause3>all tiles must have the same size
15:17<Eddi|zuHause3>unless you want to make major changes to the map layout
15:17<Roujin>I thought you guys are strictly against increasing the map array size?
15:17<Eddi|zuHause3>nobody said that
15:17<mynetdude>Eddi|zuHause3 well sure I could add a new aircraft grf but not for an existing game :(
15:18<mynetdude>whats map array?
15:18<Fingon>governor : the standard AI really sucks, but with NoAI you can make your own
15:18<governor>heh
15:18<Ammler>mynetdude: you can
15:18<Fingon>check out the NoAI branch, it has WrightAI in there by default, builds planes pretty well
15:18<Ammler>but don't complain, if it doesn't work
15:18<governor>my AI would be worse then normal lol
15:18<Fingon>haha :p
15:19<Roujin>mynetdude: there's a patch option that vehicles never disappear from the buying menu
15:19<Ammler>but plansets should be no problem
15:19<mynetdude>Roujin, is it supported in 060?
15:19<Eddi|zuHause3>might require "resetengines" to take effect
15:20<Eddi|zuHause3>mynetdude: it has been there for ages
15:20<mynetdude>howcome Chris Sawyer didn't think of helicopters in 2040? Wasn't his game supposed to end in 2051 for scoring, he should have left helos on
15:21<mynetdude>guess I"ll have to look at the patch features again
15:21<Ammler>most time, its no prolbem do "update" from default grf to newgrf, reverse its worse...
15:21<Roujin>mynetdude: search for patch option "Vehicles never expire", enable it, go to the console, type in "resetengines" (without "")
15:22*Sacro looks at OpenBVE
15:22<Roujin>this should enable you to build helicopters again, without adding a newgrf ingame (which could mean messing everything up=
15:22<Ammler>:-)

15:29<mynetdude>oh ok :)
15:30<mynetdude>well I'm almost done with this game, after this one I want to install as many newgrfs I'm going to need/want if thats even possible
15:37<mynetdude>is there a limit on how many grfs I can have active at once?
15:37<Sacro>yes
15:37<mynetdude>:(
15:37<Sacro>more than 3

15:52<mynetdude>small maps are a good way to "learn" things
15:52<@peter1138>well they're challenging too
15:55<@peter1138>can't use the trick of sending things miles to get loads of money
15:58<@Bjarni>anybody here who wants to help developing a great patch?
15:58<@Bjarni>aka I need testers :)
15:59<@Bjarni>http://devs.openttd.org/~bjarni/veh_backup_4.diff <-- apply this one and try to autoreplace all sorts of different combos (I'm specially interested in getting the "failure to replace" code tested)
15:59<Fingon>small maps are *very* challenging for AI :p
15:59<@Bjarni>heh
16:00<@Bjarni>everything is hard for the AI
16:00<Fingon>nah it all depends how you write it
16:00<Fingon>AI is good at multitasking
16:00<@Bjarni>no it's not
16:00<@Bjarni>at least not our AI
16:01<Fingon>true, the standard AI is worthless
16:01<@Bjarni>Fingon: you are in luck
16:01<@Bjarni>you have just been promoted to beta tester :-D
16:01<Fingon>/o\
16:02<Sacro>\o/
16:02<@Bjarni>get a room you two
16:02<Fingon>/o\
16:02<@Bjarni>but before doing that go download that diff and test it well
16:02<@Bjarni>Sacro should do so too
16:03<Fingon>and drop the "too"
16:03<Sacro>Bjarni: i should what?
16:03<mynetdude>yeah the problem with extremely large maps is if you want to send a train far away you'd have to use waypoints and it would have to use that same track each time
16:03<@Bjarni>ok clearly Fingon isn't up to the task

16:04<@Bjarni>this is all part of my master plan to get autoreplace to work way better with all the special newGRF rules
16:05<@Bjarni>but I want to get this well tested before committing it
16:06<@Bjarni>Sacro: btw you are great at testing my patches
16:06<@Bjarni>because clearly you and I DON'T think alike
16:07<@Bjarni>Sacro: if you test this then there might appear some boobs in the game
16:07<mynetdude>hmm 63 saves... in nearly 2.5MB
16:07<mynetdude>just for the same map
16:08<Prof_Frink>Bjarni: That's a good thing.
16:08<mynetdude>I was gonna say isn't there anybody who does think alike (very rare)
16:09<Ammler>Bjarni: with support for automatic vehicle upgrade from NewGRFs?
16:10<Disto>Are there any mods which help with the upgrade from one vehicle type to another?
16:11<mynetdude>Disto that'd be cool also
16:11<Disto>Ala Railways to Monorails
16:11<Disto>Large quantity of trains take a lot of time
16:12<Ammler>Disto: there was a patch around in the forums
16:12<mynetdude>ah I was thinking more like being able to upgrade to another engine type (faster, diesel/electric, etc
16:12<Ammler>mynetdude: did you just read the IRC?
16:13<Ammler>read back about 20mins
16:13<mynetdude>hmm? he was just saying upgrade types from rail to monorail, maglev kind of stuff
16:13<mynetdude>well I saw the stuff about autoreplace if thats what you eman

16:15<mynetdude>guess I'll find out soon enough
16:16<Disto>mynetdude you can do that already
16:17<Disto>What you can't do is replace across different types
16:17<@Bjarni><Ammler> Bjarni: with support for automatic vehicle upgrade from NewGRFs? <--- no you will still control it like you do now but right now certain newGRF will make the replacement fail while I intent to make it work
16:17<@Bjarni><Prof_Frink> Bjarni: That's a good thing. <-- boobs or better autoreplace?
16:17<@Bjarni>or both? :)
16:18<Disto>mynetdude, go into your train menu/thing and look at the bottom, there is a "Manage List" and that will allow you to replace trains
16:19<@Bjarni>are there anybody actually testing my patch?

16:23<Eddi|zuHause3>hm... my grfcodec appears to be broken...
16:24<@Bjarni>aren't there anybody at all testing my patch???
16:24<Eddi|zuHause3>why would anybody do that?
16:24<Rubidium>well, for me it's "I'm not coding it" to "I'm not going consider at any point in time that I'm not coding it"

16:26<mynetdude>14 pages long...
16:26<Sacro>Bjarni: that'd require compiling and spre time
16:26<Eddi|zuHause3>one of them, yes
16:26<Eddi|zuHause3>there's another one called "planeset"
16:26<Eddi|zuHause3>and a russian one that i don't remember the name of
16:27<@Bjarni><Eddi|zuHause3> why would anybody do that? <-- basically it would be nice to find the bugs in it before it's committed and spoils the nightly builds
16:27<@Bjarni>that is if there are any bugs
16:28<@Bjarni>but if you guys don't test it then I might just end up committing it and then you test it if you use nightly builds or your own checkouts
16:28*Sacro is in C# mode at the moment
16:28<@Bjarni>which one do you prefer if it turns out to be buggy? ;)
16:28<@Bjarni>Sacro: you don't have to read the code, just test it
16:29<Eddi|zuHause3>spree time?
16:29<Eddi|zuHause3>sounds... dangerous
16:30<Eddi|zuHause3>but can someone explain why my grfcodec is not doing _anything_ when i run it?
16:30<Eddi|zuHause3>not a beep...
16:30<DaleStan>What are you typing on the command line?

16:31<Eddi|zuHause3>grfcodec -v
16:31<Eddi|zuHause3>all the things i would expect anything to output
16:31<mynetdude>Eddi|zuHause3 is there a grf/file repository other than grfcrawler? Kindof hard to search forums for every file you'd want
16:32<Eddi|zuHause3>what's wrong with grfcrawler?
16:32<mynetdude>didn't know if grfcrawler had everything? nevermind...
16:33<Eddi|zuHause3>DaleStan: i have the (probably old) grfcodec-0.9.10-lin.zip from the ttdpatch page, and i'm quite sure it worked before
16:38<mynetdude>Eddi|zuHause3 it is also my understanding I cannot have more than one of the same type of grf loaded for a game?
16:38<mynetdude>as one or the other might overwrite the slots available, etc
16:38<DaleStan>What does file say about your copy of grfcodec? Any aliases? Any weird things earlier in your path?
16:38<Eddi|zuHause3>some of them yes, others no
16:38<mynetdude>hmm
16:39<Eddi|zuHause3>"which grfcodec" points to the correct file

17:22<@peter1138>so you didn't change order_func.h?
17:22<@peter1138>or player_base.h
17:22<@peter1138>or vehicle_gui.h
17:22<@peter1138>or loads of other headers
17:23<Eddi|zuHause3>i assume between v4 and v5
17:23<@Bjarni>peter1138: not between v4 and v5
17:23<Ammler>Bjarni: can't you replace 2 different engines to same engine?
17:23<@Bjarni>you can replace EngineID 0 to 5 and 2 to 5 if you like
17:24<@Bjarni>or did you mean something else?
17:24<Ammler>no, I meant that
17:25<@Bjarni>there is no restrictions against doing so
17:25<Ammler>well, after replacing, GUI says, I have 65k of the old train
17:25<@peter1138>hah
17:25<@Bjarni>but I recall something about a restriction against replacing A to B and B to A at the same time
17:25<Ammler>something overflow now
17:25<Ammler>Bjarni: same behavier like with 0.6.0
17:25<Eddi|zuHause3>DaleStan: what i always wanted to ask, these 3 "header" lines in the nfo files that say "do not modify", to what can i change these lines [because, obviously, my files will not be generated by grfcodec]
17:26<@Bjarni>oh crap
17:26<Ammler>I can't replace to "strange" trains anymore
17:26<@Bjarni>now I know what went wrong :s
17:26<Eddi|zuHause3>DaleStan: PS: i checked out latest revision of grfcodec and compiled myself, that works
17:26-!-Progman [~progman@p57A1DEF8.dip.t-dialin.net] has joined #openttd
17:26<@Bjarni>with the engine count, that is
17:27<@Bjarni><Ammler> I can't replace to "strange" trains anymore <--- explain
17:27<Ammler>no
17:27<Ammler>the problem is the count
17:27<Ammler>I can't replace at all
17:27<Ammler>if the count is 65k
17:28<@Bjarni>it should refuse your attempt to replace if it detects that it can't replace correctly
17:28<@Bjarni>and I know what goes wrong and where with the count
17:28<@Bjarni>now the question is how to fix it the right way
17:29<@peter1138>hmm, listening to an album on shuffle kind of defeats the point :o
17:29<Ammler>well, the other thing, should be instead of refuse, allow and "round" to corrct length :-)
17:30<Prof_Frink>peter1138: Not as bad as listening to a song on shuffle
17:30<@peter1138>true
17:30<@Bjarni>first I want this feature to work and commit it. Then I will add nice features to get it working
17:30<@Bjarni>the diff is big enough as it is
17:30<Eddi|zuHause3>what if it's too great of a song?
17:30<Prof_Frink>How d'ya mean?

17:32<Prof_Frink>Bless you.
17:33<Ammler>just realized VT-11 is a nice train
17:34<Eddi|zuHause3>is that the TEE one?
17:34<CIA-3>OpenTTD: glx * r12909 /branches/0.6/src/stdafx.h: [0.6] -Fix (r12866): missing #defines
17:34<Ammler>a Diesel, TTE?
17:35<Eddi|zuHause3>Trans Europ Express
17:35<@Bjarni>TEE is a nice train but a bit dated
17:35<Eddi|zuHause3>most certainly "VT" is a diesel ;)
17:35<@peter1138>obviously
17:35<@peter1138>just like a class 165 is
17:36<Ammler>Eddi|zuHause3: wiki says yes
17:36<Eddi|zuHause3>my question was about which one...
17:37<Ammler>http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bild:BR601-BDE.jpg
17:37<Ammler>oh BR601?
17:37<Ammler>it looks like VT-11 from DBSet
17:38<Eddi|zuHause3>6xx are diesel self-driving trains
17:39<Eddi|zuHause3>yeah, that is from later times, when they abolished the TEE system, and "degraded" the engines to normal duty
17:42<DaleStan>Eddi|zuHause3: Currently, the first line must start with "// ", the second with "// (Info version ", and the third may be anything, but will always be ignored. Currently. One change I have floating around will make the third and following header lines of the format "// <key>:<data>"
17:42<Eddi|zuHause3>alright, thanks

18:07<Ammler>as I tried to replace, the counter sinked, but it kept to be the old train
18:07<Ammler>and if the train left the depot and returnd, the counter overflowed
18:08<@Bjarni>the problem is that the train did leave (with counter and everything) and was restored in a way that bypassed the counter

18:23-!-Vikthor [~Vikthor@snat1.spoje.net] has joined #openttd
18:24<@peter1138>"that's a grf problem, nothing to do with autoreplace"

18:25<Ammler>last time?
18:25<@peter1138>the first time i said it
18:25<Ammler>but I am not able to replace to IRC anymore
18:25<Ammler>ICE
18:26<Eddi|zuHause3>you spent too much time on the former :p
18:26<Ammler>:-) yeah, for sure
18:26<Ammler>like here: http://openttd.dihedral.de/2008/04/16/bug-on-dbsetxl/
18:27<Ammler>maybe it's possible MB missused a "refit" feature?
18:28<Ammler>sadly, we can't ask him
18:28<Ammler>I meant the different livery
18:28<Eddi|zuHause3>it's a "livery override"
18:28<Eddi|zuHause3>but shouldn't it prevent the train from starting?
18:29<@peter1138>dbsetxl was made before that feature existed
18:29<@peter1138>so it doesn't
18:29<Ammler>well, that might be a bug in newer releases
18:29<Ammler>Iirc in earlier revisions, it did
18:29<Ammler>hmm
18:29<Eddi|zuHause3>what did ttdp do when trying to start a train with "more"/"stop" wagons?
18:30<@peter1138>nothing special. 'more' and 'stop' are of course just regular wagon sprites
18:30<DaleStan>It does whatever the start/stop callback tells it to do.
18:31<@Bjarni><Ammler> Bjarni: I have no idea, how far your patch should go <-- right now success is if it can build what it wants to build and can put it in one chain of vehicles only (all wagons are connected)
18:31<@Bjarni>it will not actually test if the vehicle can leave the depot or is stuck with "more" or other newGRF issues
18:31<@Bjarni>basically it's a platform where I can add such checks later
18:33<Ammler>Bjarni: so it should replace without care, if its allowed?

18:33<Prof_Frink>Nice suicide
18:34<@Bjarni>Ammler: it only checks if it can build the new vehicles and if it can connect them to the train... everything else would be considered planned for future patches
18:35<@Bjarni>basically this patch is mainly about getting back to the original vehicle if the replace fails (read: undo what it already did)
18:35<Ammler>and Bjarni, I need to stop an "old" replace order to allow an other train to replace to the same "new" engine
18:35<@Bjarni>?
18:36<@Bjarni>you should be allowed to set up replace orders like you want to
18:36<@Bjarni>except if you construct loops
18:36<Ammler>(means, I can't replace ID5->ID9, if there is a order for replace ID 7->ID9
18:36<@Bjarni>sounds like a new bug
18:36<@Bjarni>it worked the last time I tried that
18:37<Ammler>after I "stopped" ID7->ID9, I can do ID5-ID9
18:38<Ammler>you mean something like ID4->ID5 and ID5->ID9 isn't possible?
18:39<@Bjarni>no
18:39<@Bjarni>it is
18:39<@Bjarni>you can't go 4->7->9->4
18:39<@Bjarni>it will not allow 4
18:39<@Bjarni>err
18:39<@Bjarni>it will not allow the last arrow
18:39<Ammler>clear
18:39<@Bjarni>but 4->7->9 is allowed
18:45<Eddi|zuHause3>once upon a time, autoreplace didn't work if i had a general rule A->B and in a group a rule A->C, but that might have been fixed
18:49<@Bjarni>I don't recall ever being told about such an issue
18:49<@Bjarni>and I don't think I fixed anything like that
18:51<@Bjarni>anybody around?
18:52<@Bjarni>I just recalled something that happened yesterday.. I was walking from one building at campus to another one and there is some construction work
18:53<Eddi|zuHause3>Bjarni: http://bugs.openttd.org/task/1748
18:53<@Bjarni>and right when I walked by one of the construction guys said to another construction guy "it's so great when she forces her finger all the way up my ass"
18:53<@Bjarni>I didn't hear anything said before that or later
18:53<@Bjarni>but... wtf????

18:55<@Bjarni>ahh
18:56<@Bjarni>looks like a hack was replaced with a simple function call
18:56<@Bjarni>well
18:56<@Bjarni>not so much of a hack but manual figuring out what the function can do for you
18:57<@Bjarni>maybe the function wasn't available when the code in question was written
18:58<Ammler>Bjarni: I am not able to replace a ICE-T (Diesel) to a ICE-3
18:59<@Bjarni>is the train valid as an ICE-3 train?
19:00<Ammler>it would be
19:00<Ammler>but does that matter?

19:01<@Bjarni>Karen_: we have all seen it
19:01<@Bjarni>and rumours has it that it was tasty too
19:02<@Bjarni>Ammler: I meant can you build an ICE-3 and then drag all the wagons to it?
19:02<@Bjarni>all at once, that is
19:03<Ammler>yes, I can
19:03<Ammler>but maybe the problem is
19:03<Ammler>ICE-T is dualheaded

19:06<@Bjarni>I think I know why though

20:45<Eddi|zuHause2>yes
20:46<Eddi|zuHause2>also, the game will automatically load the grf you made the savegame with, regardless of config
20:48<mynetdude>oh really? Thats handy too... so I don't have to quite remember to reload all the grfs I used
20:49<mynetdude>actually I don't mind using the same .cfg for the two different stable versions, the grfs are not stored centrally as I thought they are stored in the /data folder of each stable copy so that helps too... I just want a generic blank copy for multiplaying with people who do not use grfs
20:51<Eddi|zuHause2>the game will also load the grfs of the multiplayer game, you just have to have them accessible
20:53<mynetdude>cool
20:54<mynetdude>I hate to ask... I guess I will search/find out but I noticed that sometimes cities will say they accept automobiles but I never see auto factories or autoracks available for trains or trucks
20:54<mynetdude>I saw that in some of the grfs you can get autoracks, but what about auto factory industries?
20:55<mynetdude>heck I can think of lots of new industries to add to the game just a matter of time, feasibility and demand for it
20:55<mynetdude>oh and of course a willing coder
20:57<mynetdude>like one I'd like to see is a military base or DoD/Military Munitions factory, etc I remember being told the military used to ship (and I think they do once in a great while) tanks, Jeeps/Humvees (except they don't use jeeps anymore) on trains, heck I heard that the shuttle's SRBs are/used to be shipped through the Cheyenne mountains through a tunnel so narrow the SRBs are only as wide as a horse's butt

21:04<Eddi|zuHause2>vehicle factories are part of the ECS industry scheme
21:05<Eddi|zuHause2>"vehicles" in that case means also tractors for agriculture and heavy machinery for mining
21:05<Eddi|zuHause2>i have not seen a military grf around
21:07<Eddi|zuHause2>it would be kinda difficult to integrate these in the game mechanics, as they would be more like on-demand service instead of continuous "production"
21:09<mynetdude>well not necessarily
21:10<mynetdude>military items need metal and rubber/oil so you transport steel and oil to the military site and out comes their tanks, jeeps, tires, whatever I don't know what all the military sent on trains if they even sent K/C rations and MREs on trains
21:10<mynetdude>but thats all good until 1980... after that most stuff went by air I believe as they do now
21:15<Eddi|zuHause2>well, it's probably different dimensions on a virtually empty country like the USA
21:16<mynetdude>why is that?
21:16<mynetdude>it would be kindof cool to start ttd in the 1890s when the first pioneered railroads began... just for the challenge
21:16<Eddi|zuHause2>i mean, the USA is two rather heavily populated areas at the east and west coast, and a huge void inbetween
21:16<mynetdude>I can't seem to start the game before 1930
21:17<Eddi|zuHause2>to cross these kind of distances, anything other than air is not really feasible
21:17<mynetdude>Eddi|zuHause2 now it is... but not back when the military shipments were needed but then again kinda hard to do the whole USA on a single ttd map
21:18<Eddi|zuHause2>in germany, still a lot of military material is transported by rail
21:18<mynetdude>well thats not the point Eddi|zuHause2, it was done back in the 1950s during WWII and was done for a good number of years at least for 30-40 years before they gradually stopped using rail
21:19<mynetdude>yeah but thats Germany, its much smaller and does not have a major landmass to cross
21:19<Eddi|zuHause2>of course, during WWII that is a whole different story ;)
21:21<mynetdude>well then I'd add the ability to do it from 1945-1975 or so then the industry would go poof
21:22<Eddi|zuHause2>anyway, i suppose it would be possible to add military sites that transport military vehicles between them, like banks do
21:23<Eddi|zuHause2>i mean, most of these transports happen from barracks to training sites and back
21:24<mynetdude>that works too
21:24<Eddi|zuHause2>but much more funny than that would be CASTOR transports ;)
21:24<mynetdude>?
21:25<Eddi|zuHause2>once in a blue moon, a nuclear plant wants to transport waste to a storage site
21:25<Eddi|zuHause2>and you'll get protesters along the way, blocking your network
21:25<mynetdude>oooo that'd be fun
21:26<Eddi|zuHause2>"once in a blue lagune"... that is still so funny ;)
21:26<mynetdude>nuclear waste transport, we still do it here in the US but not on trains
21:26<mynetdude>and we only do it in select locations I believe on certain "routes"
21:26<Eddi|zuHause2>it's almost always trains across europe
21:27<mynetdude>probably goes through more rural areas than populated areas if they do
21:27<Eddi|zuHause2>and it's always "temporary storage", because no country wants to actually have the waste
21:27<mynetdude>true, but where do they really put it?
21:28<mynetdude>its gotta go somewhere
21:28<mynetdude>of course nobody wants it, so where does it make its final dumping?
21:28<Eddi|zuHause2>that is an open question ;)

21:50<Eddi|zuHause2>cancer has been around since the beginning of mankind

21:52<mynetdude>um you mean mountains actually emit nuclear/radiation?
21:52<SmatZ>yes
21:52<mynetdude>btw I rebooted because not only was my windows acting up... but because my damn internet is slow

21:53<Eddi|zuHause2>where do you think they get uranium from?
21:54<SmatZ>if rebooting helps to make your internet faster, then you have probably full computer of spyware - maybe your PC is spamming other PCs all around the world
21:54<SmatZ>mynetdude: run netstat to show all your TCP connections
21:54<Eddi|zuHause2>of course they get it from uranium ore that they pull out of mines
21:54<SmatZ>if there are many SMTP connections, then you are a spammer :-)
21:54<mynetdude>lolz no, my computer does not have spyware... I do spyware checks regularly and I just recently reformatted

21:55<mynetdude>oh yeah I've done that before... ok let me run that
21:55<Eddi|zuHause2>infecting with spyware happens like after 2 seconds of being connected to the net
21:56<mynetdude>Eddi|zuHause2 true about that
21:56<mynetdude>Eddi|zuHause2 really? That makes no sense, you have to do something to get it connecting to the net itself can't possibly get you spyware
21:56<mynetdude>the second you open your browser for the first time, I would think so that isn't the net
21:56<Eddi|zuHause2>you have windows, it does a lot that you do not know about
21:57<SmatZ>I read somewhere that Windows XP gets infected in in average 20 seconds after connecting to internet
21:57<mynetdude>how do I find SMTP connections?
21:57<mynetdude>Eddi|zuHause2, true it may do a lot but that wouldn't make any sense
21:57<mynetdude>SmatZ how?
21:57<SmatZ>mynetdude: I don't know... I think there should be SMTP or port 25 shown... I don't remember
21:58<mynetdude>ah I see nothing of port 25, I see one proxy port, I see one port to this server
21:58<SmatZ>mynetdude: there were security flaws that allowed anyone to do anything with your computer ... they were fixed later, I am talking about unpatched Windows XP
21:58<SmatZ>mynetdude: then it is ok
21:59<Eddi|zuHause2>especially pre-SP2 it was really bad with windows
21:59<mynetdude>oh unpatched, this is patched
21:59<Eddi|zuHause2>it has probably stabilised since then
22:00<mynetdude>I hate my internet
22:00<SmatZ>:)
22:00<Eddi|zuHause2>but especially right after a reinstall it is dangerous, like when you first have to load the patches from windowsupdate
22:00<mynetdude>I'm using RF
22:00<mynetdude>they call it "W-DSL"
22:00<mynetdude>oh yeah good point, thats the only thing I do right after reinstall is do updates first

22:09<Eddi|zuHause2><Gekz> and never got a virus <- how do you know if you have no antivirus?
22:09<Phantasm>So, no use using AV... But I do know the fact that there are many yet unknown holes in firefox and other things that might get me a virus. AV just won't do any good even then... Any system can be broken with good enough skills and enough time.
22:10<Phantasm>Normal home users just aren't worthy enough users to be targetted with such commonly, so the chances are I won't get anything.. And even if I had AV the chances are I would get same amount of shit.
22:10<Eddi|zuHause2>that is huge nonsense...
22:11<mynetdude>Phantasm, well thats the AV's job, I'm smart enough not to download something I don't know what it is or at least scan it first
22:12<Phantasm>It is AV's job to get rid of 'any virus, previously known or unknown..
22:12<mynetdude>Phantasm well firefox, IE, Opera them all probably have holes somewhere to some degree
22:12<Phantasm>The problem is just that AVs don't do their job perfectly.
22:12<Eddi|zuHause2>you also use no condom because they are not 100% safe... right
22:13<Phantasm>mynetdude: IE has plenty of holes, and they get exploited a lot due to IE being used so much.. I use Firefox, and sure the are holes, but with noscript most of the holes get blocked likely.

22:13<Eddi|zuHause2>i will not continue with this discussion
22:13<mynetdude>Phantasm, nothing is 100% perfect, you can't expect perfection just like condoms aren't 100% safe either
22:13<Phantasm>And I am behind linux NAT as well.
22:14<Phantasm>mynetdude: If AVs actually worked so they never ever use hard drive (other than to save their own updated virus database), then they might be useful.. But they are idiotic and slow down the system way too much.
22:14<mynetdude>Sure I don't disagree that Fx is more secure, you can't expect 100% failsafe security I suppose that is possible in Linux though
22:14<Phantasm>Active virus protection doesn't need to scan the files being used from hard drive, all it takes is to scan the data that is read to ram.
22:14*mynetdude doesn't know how to run a Linux NAT/Firewall yet
22:15<Phantasm>mynetdude: Linux is not 100% failsafe.
22:15<Eddi|zuHause2>and antivirus is not completely "useless" for unknown viruses, they are also designed to look for "suspicious behaviour", or unknown modifications of known viruses
22:15<Phantasm>The thing is, with firefox + noscript (ie. all javascript and plugins are disabled unless I myself tell them to be enabled for single site) only such special viruses may get past that no AV will notice them.
22:15<Eddi|zuHause2>and chances are, the AV gets updated much faster than the security hole in your application gets fixed
22:16<mynetdude>Phantasm files always go to the RAM before being written to a disc/HDD right?
22:16<Eddi|zuHause2>security holes usually open holes for KNOWN viruses/spyware/malware to get in
22:17<Phantasm>mynetdude: Everything goes to ram yes. Before getting executed read from hard drive of written downloaded from somewhere.
22:17<Eddi|zuHause2>which the AV will most likely catch
22:17<Phantasm>Eddi|zuHause2: Known holes won't get past updates firefox + noscript + NAT.
22:18<Eddi|zuHause2>but there is a "huge" timespan between a hole getting "known" and getting "fixed"
22:18<Eddi|zuHause2>during that time, you need the AV
22:18<Phantasm>In IE, yes.. In firefox, nope.
22:18<Phantasm>And AVs also get updates very slowly in reality.
22:18<Eddi|zuHause2>it doesn't have to be as fast
22:19<Eddi|zuHause2>because there is a difference between a security hole, and the virus getting through the security hole
22:19<Phantasm>There have been various tests for different AVs and they let loads of stuff, even old, past.
22:19<Eddi|zuHause2>the virus is most likely a variation of a known virus, even if the security hole is unknown
22:19<Phantasm>And the heurestics to detect unknown viruses are very bad.

22:21<Phantasm>In normal desktop usage, the AV hampers the system performance due to stupidly accessing the hard drive more than anything as windows is very bad at handling multiple hard drive accessing at same time.
22:21<Eddi|zuHause2>i'm already seeing twice... i should go to bed
22:21<mynetdude_second>the problem wasn't my computer or router
22:21<mynetdude_second>it was the RF transciever itself
22:21<Phantasm>There is never ever case to need to read hard drive on active virus protection.. Only in separate virus scan there is need to read hard drive.
22:22-!-mynetdude [~mynetdude@208.74.131.93] has quit [Read error: No route to host]
22:22<mynetdude_second>I have had only had to do that 3 times since I've had this service
22:22<Phantasm>But AVs do read the hard drive like all the time when there is some activity and thus already the performance hole, hard drive, gets extra use and becomes even bigger hole.
22:23<mynetdude_second>Phantasm good point, my resident is always scanning any files being accessed... now if I could get a RAM scan resident then I could see not using HDD scan
22:23<Phantasm>If someone made AV that actually works intelligently, I might actually use it.
22:24<Phantasm>It is very fast to scan files on the RAM, so the good implementation would scan any staff that goes into ram (from network card, hard drive or whatever) before it is executed or otherwise accessed. That would give perfect scan protection as far as AVs virus databases and heurestics allow with no extra hard drive usage.
22:25<mynetdude_second>well the AV/database would be stored on the HDD and very little use is needed to access that
22:25-!-mynetdude_second is now known as mynetdude
22:26<Phantasm>In fact, I rather reinstall windows twice a year than use AV because the performance loss is worse than time taken for reinstall. In reality chances of getting a virus is like once in 10-1000 years... Then chances for the virus even working on windows server 2008 64 bit is other case...
22:26<Phantasm>AV files and database can all be in RAM, so no hard drive usage after startup there.
22:27<Phantasm>Of course whenever the AV files and/or databases are updated there would be some hard drive usage.
22:27<mynetdude>you mean when the PC boots the AV/database is copied to the RAM and stays there the whole time? I guess that would really speed things up
22:27<mynetdude>right then again copied to the RAM to have a copy of the update during active use
22:28<Phantasm>Yea.
22:28<DaleStan>I have an Idea! Just use a monster RAM drive. Copy all your data into RAM on startup, and then you don't need the HD until shutdown!
22:29<mynetdude>well inteligence in software is needed, but I'm sure it is difficult
22:29<mynetdude>lol DaleStan
22:29<mynetdude>there are RAM drives... but horribly expensive?
22:31<DaleStan>I'm pretty sure you can get the drivers for free, but yes, the RAM necessary to do that would be horribly expensive. A RAID of flash drives would be cheaper and not much slower.
22:32<Sacro>DaleStan: to be honest, 16GB RAM isn't that unusual now, and that'd allow most OS'en
22:32<Phantasm>10 GB of ram is about 100 euro.
22:32-!-SpBot [terom@marttila.de] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:32<Phantasm>But normal mobos only take 8 GB of ram max.. And server mobos are expensive.
22:33<mynetdude>I have seen some consumer boards take 16, hard to find and uber expensive
22:34<mynetdude>16GB isn't the norm yet, 4GB is pretty much the norm for consumer PCs, 16GB may be the norm for servers however
22:34<DaleStan><Phantasm> 10 GB of ram is about 100 euro. <-- I'd like to see where I can order that, please. I paid USD 100 for 1 GB not long ago.
22:34<Phantasm>2 GB per slot, 4 slots is the norm.
22:34<Phantasm>DaleStan: Germany at least.. That is DDR2-800.
22:35<mynetdude>DaleStan then you got ripped, you can get 1GB for way less now
22:35<mynetdude>I got DDR2-800 for less than $70
22:35<mynetdude>thats 2GB
22:35<DaleStan>"not long" as in "about a year ago", actually, and for a 5 year old computer.
22:35<Phantasm>DaleStan: Prices have gone down a lot.
22:36<mynetdude>DaleStan ah true I did buy some RAM a year ago for a bit more than that
22:36<mynetdude>but I consider not long ago the last 3-6 months
22:36<mynetdude>for PC stuff
22:36<DaleStan>The people who know more about such things than I said I needed to pay extra to get RAM that would be guaranteed to work properly with my machine.
22:36<Phantasm>A lot of prices have gone down a lot... Hard drive, cpu and ram at least.
22:36<mynetdude>hopefully I can buy my AMD Phenom for less than $1k with a few perks this summer, the price will have gone down some by then
22:37<mynetdude>DaleStan that is somewhat true
22:37<Sacro>phenom is only about $300 here
22:38<Phantasm>4 core phenom is below 160 euro here (including 22% vat).
22:38<mynetdude>DaleStan, I don't know how much you know... but typically manufacturers will list RAM they have tested and is known to have compatability (with no problems) but that doesn't mean you need to pay extra to make sure it works
22:38<mynetdude>yeah thats about $300USD or so
22:38<Phantasm>And any good store let's you return ram if it doesn't work.
22:38<Phantasm>No matter if the problem if your mobo or ram itself.

22:40<DaleStan>But returning the stuff is a hassle. I'm willing to pay the extra to know I won't have to deal with that. Especially since that 1 GB was (and is) my only stick.
22:40<mynetdude>Phantasm better yet, I just RMA them nevermind taking them back to the store but yes... thats true many stores will accept the RAM back because all they do is do the RMA themselves
22:40-!-SpBot [terom@marttila.de] has joined #openttd
22:40<mynetdude>DaleStan lolz... you're fooling yourself if you think paying extra will let you avoid those problems
22:40<Phantasm>Paying extra for such will 'quarantee' the store takes it back when you encounter problems.
22:41<mynetdude>paying extra may give you better QUALITY I won't disagree, but Corsair is good RAM and I've had them go bad on me just after a year
22:41<DaleStan>I went to the local *non-chain* computer store. Such stores are in the habit of knowing their stuff.
22:41<mynetdude>I disagree... as long as the RAM has the voltage and correct pins and other settings you might need it should relatively work
22:41<Phantasm>Ram almost never dies, if it works at start and you don't overclock it too much.
22:41<Phantasm>mynetdude: Compatibility problems are quite common with DDR2.
22:42<mynetdude>I never OC, no need to
22:42<Phantasm>mynetdude: So, you need to know what to get.
22:42<Phantasm>It isn't enough just to have correct voltage and correct ram type.
22:42<mynetdude>Phantasm I just made that point, as long as you get the correct specs it should be good to go
22:42<Phantasm>Correct specs isn't enough.
22:42<mynetdude>unless you need ECC and server type RAM... I don't know what else you'd need?
22:43<Phantasm>If you want, say DDR2-800 non-ecc, not all of those work. You need to make sure there aren't compatibility problems eith the mobo you are using.
22:43<Phantasm>Even though they do fit the specs, they might not work with your mobo.
22:44<mynetdude>I have never had any issues using any random brand DDR2-800 on 3 different types of boards
22:44<Phantasm>Yet.. ;P
22:44<mynetdude>yes I realize that certain brands will not work well as others even if they are the same specs
22:44<mynetdude>the only issue I have had was my set of Corsair DDR2-800 had an odd issue of failing to run in dual mode
22:45<mynetdude>they would run in single but not in dual and did not pass test in dual
22:46<mynetdude>anyhow...
22:46<Phantasm>Well, that is "minor" compatibility issue.
22:46<mynetdude>but yes I do check for RAM compatability to see if there is anything I should really avoid... but I like to go for cheaper and hope it works
22:47<mynetdude>if it doesn't work, at least I can use it somewhere else
22:47<Phantasm>Cheap is fine, as long as you check it should work.
22:47<mynetdude>but I don't think paying extra guarantees anything either
22:48<mynetdude>wanting quality is another issue... I can see paying more for higher specs/quality
22:48<Phantasm>Yea, paying extra won't guarantee anything. Unless the store has a 'service' that they check it should work with it.
22:48<mynetdude>neway... 'nuff of that
