03:01-!-iAN_ [~UNIX@] has joined #openttd
03:01<iAN_>hi gurus, developers, batman, cops and all others
03:01-!-HerzogDeXtEr [~Flex@] has joined #openttd
03:03<Eddi|zuHause2>i'd take the first category if nobody minds :)
03:03<iAN_>I figured out what kills gameplay totally.
03:04<iAN_>using all ECS vectors and trying to deliver cargo from source to destination. That simply does not work
03:04<iAN_>If, in the chain, something minor goes wrong. e.g. a lorry doesn't bring potash to a factory, it decreses production.
03:04<iAN_>Then, coal, ironore, etc. is no longer accepted at the station
03:05<Eddi|zuHause2>George's ECS implementation is just way over the top
03:05<iAN_>those trains run back (full) the source station sinks in raw materials, and the output goes back from 1500 tons/month to 6
03:05<iAN_>then, when you have fixed the lorry, the factory sinks in potash, because coal and iroenore are missing
03:05<Eddi|zuHause2>you can use the unload order
03:06<iAN_>This is a total mess of everything.
03:06<iAN_>I figured out how to handle the mes
03:06<iAN_>buid a gigantic station in the middle of the map. Lots of platforms, huge space.
03:06<iAN_>every train goes from source to there unloading "everything"
03:07<iAN_>and then the factories will be delivered from there
03:07<iAN_>even when one mine goes down, there is enough coal at the center station

03:08-!-HerzogDeXtEr1 [~Flex@] has joined #openttd
03:08<Eddi|zuHause2>only that'll totally kill profit
03:11-!-GoneWacko [] has joined #openttd
03:11<iAN_>I tried it.
03:12<iAN_>You lose a lot more with that fricking ECS
03:12<Eddi|zuHause2>like i said, it's way over the top
03:12<Eddi|zuHause2>there is no "easy" mode
03:13-!-[com]buster [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
03:13-!-HerzogDeXtEr2 [~Flex@] has joined #openttd
03:13<iAN_>you need 6 mineral-sources and one destination (factories). Its almost impossible to have that running. (output is glass + steel)
03:13-!-[com]buster [] has joined #openttd
03:13<iAN_>never ever had "everything" runnig up to car production in the end
03:14*peter1138 wonders if any ttdpatch players experience that
03:14<iAN_>you would need, coal, ore, sand, glass, steel, oil, refined products, dye and all that in a weighted relation
03:14<iAN_>not even touching the vectors for food and people (towns)
03:15-!-HerzogDeXtEr [~Flex@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:15<iAN_>for a mineral source, producing 3000 units/month you need at least 4 platforms with a length of 14 tiles (each)
03:15<iAN_>even if the coalmine is next to the power station.
03:16<iAN_>then, the output of the power station goes up to 25% and the station does no longer accept coal
03:16<iAN_>(mabe needs oil?)
03:16-!-dR3x4cK [] has quit [Quit: dR3x4cK]
03:16<iAN_>so, try to find (30!!) oil wells to deliver enough oil
03:17<iAN_>I'd like to chat with the inventor of those ECS

03:20-!-HerzogDeXtEr1 [~Flex@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:20<Eddi|zuHause2>it's George, you find him on the forums
03:21<Eddi|zuHause2>and he is not the inventor of ECS, ECS is a common specification, he IMPLEMENTED it
03:21<Eddi|zuHause2>MB wants to do another implementation, let's see how that turns out

04:26-!-Boyinblue0 [] has joined #openttd
04:27-!-Boyinblue0 [] has quit []
04:29<Eddi|zuHause2>my main problem with non-trunk-inclusion over a long time is savegame compatibility
04:29<planetmaker>but that's a general problem of all patches, ain't it?
04:30<Eddi|zuHause2>yes and no, it is solveable if the patch author includes special savegame code
04:30<planetmaker>you can avoid that, if you bump savegame version yourself a bit more :)
04:30<planetmaker>^ which is easier, but more hackish :P
04:30<planetmaker>btw: is there an example somewhere how to include such savegame code?
04:31<Eddi|zuHause2>yes, the MiniIN
04:31<planetmaker>hm, will have to have a look. But I fear the MiniIN is so huge, I won't see the wood because of the trees (or however you call it in English ;) )
04:32<Eddi|zuHause2>well, most of these changes should be in settings.c and saveload.c
04:34<Eddi|zuHause2>but i still think trunk should be prepared so that people can use the minor savegame version for that
04:34<planetmaker>^that indeed would be a nice idea :)
04:34<planetmaker>but is just a nice idea unless you find a volunteer to make a patch which implements it.
04:35<Eddi|zuHause2>trunk will then only ever be able to load games with minor savegame version == 0
04:35<Eddi|zuHause2>and patch authors will only ever bump the minor savegame version, not the major savegame version
04:36<planetmaker>though this not necessarily solves anything like savegame incompatibility.
04:36<Eddi|zuHause2>it uncouples trunk savegame bumps from patch savegame bumps
04:36-!-Farden [] has joined #openttd
04:37<planetmaker>IIRC decouple. but whatever :)
04:37<Eddi|zuHause2>in most cases, these should be orthogonal
04:37<Eddi|zuHause2>only obvious special case is merging a patch to trunk
04:38<Eddi|zuHause2>this will help developing one patch with savegame compatibility over time, but not merging patches into patch packs
04:40<planetmaker>hm... but I don't see how this is easily to integrate in the save or load code of a savegame.
04:40<planetmaker>you'd always have to tell it to handle the trunkish stuff special which means you have to tell it what is trunk in the first place
04:40-!-Pikka [Pikka@] has joined #openttd
04:41<planetmaker>so far - as I understood from a brief look - it's kind of monolithic writing down the settings structure. But I may be wrong
04:41<planetmaker>and special cases for different savegame versions.

07:56<Eddi|zuHause>oh yeah... windows firewall at work...
07:57<Eddi|zuHause>i have 4 computers in the network, computer A on WinXP has windows shares
07:57<Eddi|zuHause>i can access the windows shares from computer B (Win95) and C (SuSE)
07:57<Eddi|zuHause>but not from computer D (Knoppix)
07:57<@Rubidium>that one's behind a router?
07:58<@Rubidium>or has IP .1?
07:58<Eddi|zuHause>depends on what you call router
07:59<Eddi|zuHause>it is on a different network, yes
07:59<Eddi|zuHause>computer C is .1
07:59<Eddi|zuHause>anyway, i disabled the firewall temporarily, now it works
07:59<@Rubidium>so A, B and C are in 192.168.0.X and D in 192.168.1.Y (or similar)
08:00<@Rubidium>then for Windows D is a computer on "the internet" that's accessing it, so the firewall goes into block all mode
08:02<Eddi|zuHause>is there any way to tell the windows firewall, that it is also "local"?
08:02<ln>no comma in front of "that".
08:03<Eddi|zuHause>there has to in german
08:03<@Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: yes, but whether it includes hexediting the firewall is something I don't know
08:03*iAN_ sighs
08:03<iAN_>pew. just spend 646 Euro for an external roof-box on my car
08:05<Eddi|zuHause>i should just set up a proper bridge instead of routing on computer C

08:56<Pikka>muahahaha... just gotta decide what I'm gonna do with them now ;)
08:56<@Belugas>and to think it was already drawn ;)
08:56*Pikka is definitely making earlier variations of the oil chain and the power plant and the fuel depots... maybe adding a coal gasification plant?
08:57<Pikka>the early oilwells are more or less drawn :)
09:00<Noldo>I have to wonder how smatz comes up with those saves
09:01<@SmatZ>easiest way is to run compilation with -Winline
09:01<@SmatZ>where it fails to inline
09:01<@SmatZ>there it is better to move it to cpp
09:02<@SmatZ>like in this case...
09:03<@Belugas>i'm sure you're going to produce a killer set, Pikka :)

10:57<yorick>what does that mean?
10:57<yorick>"tracks for slopes"
10:57<Wuisch>so whats the diffrence between an aqua duct and a viaduct?
10:57<@peter1138>aqueduct is for water
10:57<yorick>aqueducts have water over them
10:57<Wuisch>ooh right

17:11<svippy>How is that cheating?
17:11<svippy>I am not getting it at all.
17:11<svippy>And I think there is a good reason for only allowing passenger cars in their trains.
17:11<svippy>Maybe because it *is* a passenger train!
17:12<@Bjarni>in real life you can only use wagons that can carry the control signals from the steering car to the locomotive
17:12<svippy>:O My goodness, I think I just nailed it.
17:12<@Bjarni>usually only passenger wagons can do that
17:12<svippy>Well, that too.
17:12<@Bjarni>also they need to fit certain physical features too
17:12<fjb>It is far more complicated to make a train lokk going backward when you have different cars in it. You don't only have to switch the first and the last sprite of the train, you have to switch all the sprite in the train.
17:13<svippy>Your point is, fjb?
17:13<@Bjarni>how long can you make those trains anyway?
17:13<fjb>So it is easier to only allow passanger cars in a push pull train.
17:14<fjb>Mail cars are were not that uncommon in passenger trains.
17:14<@Bjarni>we are talking about push pull trains
17:14<@Bjarni>they are usually used for short distances

17:22<svippy>Hey, Bjarni, I don't know how good your Danish is, but in my experience "jern" is "iron" and "bane" is "track".

17:39<svippy>How can I live if my system has an almost 99% uptime?!
17:39<svippy>Where are the restarts?! That is not what I have come to know!
17:39<fjb>Every system is insecure if the operator doesn't know what he is doing.
17:40<svippy>Some systems' third parties are just more out to get them than others.
17:40<@Bjarni>I don't think this would be an issue
17:40<@Bjarni>as it should be taken care of by their system administrator
17:40<@Bjarni>this is computers for work

17:40<fjb>Don't feel secure only because you are using Linux.
17:40<@Bjarni>hence they don't have to install it themselves
17:41<svippy>I don't fjb.
17:41<ben_goodger>my IT teacher once submitted a proof that went: "windows is perfect, therefore viruses just happen. windows is perfect and linux is not windows, therefore linux is not perfect, therefore it is worse at viruses"
17:41<@Bjarni><fjb> Don't feel secure only because you are using Linux. <--- nobody claimed that
17:41<@Bjarni>it's just in comparison with windows
17:42<svippy>ben_goodger, what was his argument for stating "Windows is perfect".

17:42<ben_goodger>she didn't have one
17:42<svippy>Of course not.
17:42<svippy>CAUSE THERE IS NONE.
17:42<fjb>A well administrered Windows is more secure than a poorly administered Linux.
17:42<svippy>If Windows is perfect, why are they copying OS X?
17:42<svippy>True, fjb.
17:42<ben_goodger>fjb: yes, but trying to administer Windows well will drive someone to suicide long before Linux
17:42<svippy>But is cheaper to get a well administrated Linux than a Windows box.
17:42<@SmatZ>ben_goodger: good teachers you have
17:42<Eddi|zuHause>it's so weird... i just read this RFC about the bot conversation, and then i read svippy's conversation here, and they look exactly alike
17:42<svippy>Well, at least in most usecases I have read.
17:43<svippy>Eddi|zuHause, I work hard to fail the Turing test.

17:44<ben_goodger>I don't like lying to pass exams. it's one of the many reasons I have become a depressed cynical shell of a teenager
17:44<fjb>Depends who your administrator is. When you hae trained Windows people at hand Windows may be the cheaper and more secure way. It just depends.
17:44<@Bjarni>speaking of security. Somebody made a proof of concept where he got safari for windows to download a file to the desktop without the user knowing it. Next time he started IE it would run the downloaded dll and start notepad
17:44<@Bjarni>naturally this is seen as a security issue
17:44<ben_goodger>ah yes
17:44<ben_goodger>apple refused to patch it, no?
17:44<svippy>Mixing Safari and IE was never a good idea.
17:45<svippy>Yeah, ben_goodger, because they want Windows users to suffer.
17:45<@Bjarni>Apple says that it's not entirely their fault because "why the fuck would IE execute a dll file just because it's on the desktop???"
17:45<Eddi|zuHause><Bjarni> they are usually used for short distances <- all modern long distance trains are push-pull now
17:45<svippy>I can imagine Steve Jobs stroking his cat right now.
17:45<ben_goodger>Eddi|zuHause: what about DMUs?
17:45<@Bjarni><ben_goodger> apple refused to patch it, no? <-- they didn't say that but they didn't claim to try to fix it either

17:46<ben_goodger>Bjarni: on /. --- "if safari downloads things to the desktop, it is because all user agents should do so, and apple are the only people with the wisdom, foresight and polo sweaters to implement it"
17:46<svippy> <@Bjarni> <ben_goodger> apple refused to patch it, no? <-- they didn't say that but they didn't claim to try to fix it either <-- They said they would fix it in an update, but they didn't consider it critical or a security issue.
17:46<Eddi|zuHause>ben_goodger: especially those are push-pull ;)
17:46<@Bjarni><Eddi|zuHause> <Bjarni> they are usually used for short distances <- all modern long distance trains are push-pull now <-- they tend to be DMU/EMU based. Those aren't push pull
17:47<ben_goodger>well, it depends
17:47<@Bjarni>lol @ ben_goodger
17:47<Eddi|zuHause>and only ICEs are EMUs, all other long distance trains are engine-driven with a steering wagon at the end
17:47<ben_goodger>in britain we have HSTs which are push-pull, and from the 70s.... and 180s, 22*s, 158s, 390s which are DMU/EMUs from the 00s
17:48<ben_goodger>oh, we also have class 90s and 47s which are pull-only
17:48<ben_goodger>long-distance, I mean
17:49<ben_goodger>people appear to like DMUs mostly nowadays. maybe it's the acceleration or the screaming of the engines that attracts them to them, but I am not sure
17:49<@Bjarni><EddizuHause> [...], all other long distance trains are engine-driven with a steering wagon at the end <-- sounds stupid. Here steering cars aren't allowed to go faster than 140 km/h when they are in front for security issues

17:51<@Bjarni> <ben_goodger> people appear to like DMUs mostly nowadays. maybe it's the acceleration or the screaming of the engines that attracts them to them, but I am not sure <-- modern trains have problems with high force. Basically there is a limit to how much the tracks can survive from each axle so spreading the same amount of force on to more axles the impact on the tracks is way smaller and you can accelerate faster with less wear on th
17:51<@Bjarni>e tracks
17:52<ben_goodger>the thing is, the quiet carriage on the HST is right next to the "pull" loco, and it's quiet as anything other than the slam-doors
17:53<ben_goodger>Eddi|zuHause: I did indeed know that...then again, the nazis did many great things that have nothing to do with killing
17:53<@Bjarni>you mean it's full of engine noise?
17:53<ben_goodger>no, it's silent
17:53<ben_goodger>DMUs are full of engine noise.
17:54<@Bjarni>generally I don't consider engine noise in a DMU as an issue

18:00<Eddi|zuHause>fjb: it's less myth than you think, e.g. a long straight stripe of Autobahn near Dessau was specially prepared without middle-stripe to be used as emergency landing and starting stripe for planes
18:00<fjb>Henry Ford was a big fan of Hitler. He trained some of the VW engineers.
18:01<Eddi|zuHause>well, ford did have car factories in germany since the 1920's
18:01<ben_goodger>good for them. he was a good businessman
18:01<@Bjarni><fjb> ben_goodger: They spend far more money then they had. Germany was bankrupt within a few years. <--- actually Germany arrested some businessmen because they tried to make personal profit on decreasing the economy in Germany. Today we can't say either way if it's true or not but we can say that it's likely not just due to one thing that they ended up having money problems
18:01<Eddi|zuHause>Ford Germany recently celebrated 75 years
18:01<fjb>Eddi|zuHause: Preparing motoways as emergency landing stripes is quite cmmon around the world. Especially peacefull countriss like Swizerland do this.
18:02<ben_goodger>Bjarni: I think it's likely that the money problems occurred as a result of being continually attacked by multiple countries simultaneously over six years...though that may be completely the wrong time period
18:02<Eddi|zuHause>well, they "unbuilt" that preparation on this segment meanwhile ;)
18:02<ben_goodger>switzerland aren't peaceful

18:03<ben_goodger>every man over 25 is in the swiss national militia and keeps a loaded rifle in his home
18:03<ben_goodger>...according to a book I have
18:03<fjb>ben_goodger: Germany was bankrupt before the war started.
18:03<svippy>When was the last time I heard of something violent happening in Switzerland was... NEVER!
18:03<@Bjarni>Switzerland once attacked Liechtenstein

18:12<ben_goodger>svippy: interesting... it also says "4 (U.S. dollars / gal) = 0.565800675 Euros / litre"
18:13<svippy>That's because you are doing it wrong.
18:13<+glx>that's cheap
18:13<ben_goodger>ah, it seems to be using imperial gallons for some reason
18:13<ben_goodger>ok, 68 cents per litre
18:13<svippy>(4 U.S. dollars) per US gallon = 1.05668821 U.S. dollars per litre
18:13<ben_goodger>and in the UK it's 1.46 euros
18:13<@SmatZ>google "3 usd / gal in euro / l"
18:13<svippy>gal is imperial gallon, gallon is US gallon.
18:14*SmatZ loves google calc :)
18:14<svippy>You get wrong result, SmatZ.
18:14<svippy>As I just pointed out.
18:14<Eddi|zuHause>1,50 (€ / l) = 8,8300408 US$ per US gallon <- that's what they cost around here
18:14<@Bjarni><fjb> Bjarni: I doubt that. They planed to get the Oil under their control. <-- that something critics claimed afterwards. They acted on information from Israel that Iraq should have weapons of mass destruction and plans on using them against US interests. While the news talked about the new war in Iraq Israel started their own offensive against Palestine and the media didn't really talk about it
18:14<ben_goodger>1,50? you have my pity....
18:15<svippy>We don't need your pity.
18:15<svippy>We are Europeans.
18:15<svippy>We are fucking rich.
18:15<+glx>we need less taxes ;)
18:15<ben_goodger>I'm european too
18:15<@Bjarni>svippy: stop lying
18:15<ben_goodger>in fact, I'm probably richer
18:15<svippy>Hey, Bjarni, we live in the country that pays most taxes.
18:15<svippy>And yet, I feel like I can afford it all.
18:15<ben_goodger>svippy: where are you?
18:16<ben_goodger>of course, diesel is up around 1.65 euro here
18:16<ben_goodger>it's bloody stupid. diesel should cost _less_ than gasoline
18:16<Eddi|zuHause>well, 1,50 is relative, it tends to jump up and down about 10 ct during each week
18:17<svippy>Diesel is fucking horrible to environment.
18:17<ben_goodger>bollocks it is
18:17<+glx>and there's more demand for it
18:17<@Bjarni><svippy> Hey, Bjarni, we live in the country that pays most taxes. <-- the taxes are so high that many people resort to cheat on taxes because it's simply not possible to get the work done with the current taxes
18:17<svippy>Yeah, cheaters.
18:18<@Bjarni>I mean you need a new door. You pay somebody to install it. 20% of the bill is taxes. The company pays income taxes and the guy who did the work needs to get his paycheck too where he pays say 60%
18:19<svippy>We get some great services in this country.
18:19<@Bjarni>combine those costs and you will see how many doors you donated to the state when you just needed one door yourself
18:19<svippy>I know people keep saying there are problems.
18:19<svippy>But that is because Denmark is a whiner nation.
18:19<svippy>We are.
18:19<@Bjarni>it's because service actually is poor
18:19<Mchl>we are
18:19<@Bjarni>because money is wasted
18:20<svippy>Denmark has some of the most efficient health care system in the world.
18:20<@Bjarni>the system is very inefficient
18:20<svippy>According to several reports.
18:20<svippy>It is not perfect.
18:20<svippy>And it has lacks in certain areas that need being addressed.
18:20<@Bjarni>yet the risk of dying from say cancer is far greater than if you get cancer in say Sweden or Norway
18:20<svippy>Yeah, because the risk of dying of boredom in Norway and Sweden overtakes that stat.
18:21<@Bjarni>that's a fucked up argument
18:21<svippy>You are realising I am not really taking this discussion *that* seriously?
18:21*Bjarni notice that svippy wants to live on social welfare
18:21<svippy>Not really.
18:23<@Bjarni>you use arguments like you want to do that
18:23<svippy>I wonder what political view you have, Bjarni.
18:23<svippy>Well, maybe because I do.
18:23<svippy>Because I consider myself a socialist.
18:23<@SmatZ> Bjarni svippy take a test, and tell the results :)
18:23<svippy>But often I am not interested in what my opinion is.
18:24<svippy>I am often near Stalin, SmatZ.
18:24<svippy>Or is it Gandhi?
18:24<svippy>Damn passive aggressive.
18:24<@SmatZ>svippy: so am I
18:24<@Bjarni>you can't tell the difference?
18:24<svippy>No, I can't remember.
18:24<svippy>It may be Stalin.
18:25<svippy>Despite the fact that I disagree with a lot of his ways.

18:43<@DorpsGek>SmatZ: Commit by hackykid :: r2516 /trunk (30 files in 5 dirs) (2005-07-04 14:58:55 UTC)
18:43<@DorpsGek>SmatZ: - Feature: [pbs] Implement path-based-signalling. This allows multiple trains within the same signal block, provided their paths dont intersect. For this the block must have all exit and entry signals be pbs signals. Place these by ctrl-clicking 4 times on a normal signal.
18:43<@DorpsGek>SmatZ: - Feature: [pbs] Implement autoplacement of pbs blocks, when a block has an entry and an exit pbs signal, covert the entire block to pbs. Can be turned off in the patch settings.
18:43<@DorpsGek>SmatZ: - Feature: [pbs] Allow showing of reserved status by making the tracks darker, when the pbs debug level is at least 1.
18:44<@SmatZ>@openttd commit 3472
18:44<@DorpsGek>SmatZ: Commit by Darkvater :: r3472 /trunk (52 files in 5 dirs) (2006-01-29 18:57:26 UTC)
18:44<@DorpsGek>SmatZ: - [PBS] Remove from trunk. Anyone interested can still find it in branch/pbs. This reverts revisions r3158, r3140, r3075, r2977, r2674, r2625, r2621, r2529, r2528, r2525, r2524, r2519, r2517, r2516, r2507, r2499. (in conjunction with Tron)
18:44<@DorpsGek>SmatZ: - The only change is that the nsignalsw.grf file is kept and that existing nightlies with PBS signals get those signals converted to combo-signals.

19:14<Eddi|zuHause>i think keeping children in groups helps with building social contacts
19:14<@Bjarni>statistics aren't good but that's mainly because it's near impossible to remove children from bad parents so they do that when the police catches a 10 year old for the 10th time in a stolen car
