05:10<Terkhen>good morning
05:12<planetmaker>\o/ @ Rubidium! Timetable separations, yeah! :-) (or do I mis-understand?)
05:14-!-andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
05:16<Eddi|zuHause>i only saw start dates, not separation
05:22<Eddi|zuHause>from what i see, the expected arrival/departure and the start date have been included, so it misses the autoseparation [headway], the virtual 24h clock, the station timetables and probably more pieces

05:43*Rubidium sees Eddi has good eyes
05:44-!-andythenorth [] has quit [Quit: andythenorth]
05:45-!-phalax [~phalax@] has joined #openttd
05:50<@Rubidium>though I'm having some thoughts about the whole 24h clock especially on the savegame compatability side
05:55<planetmaker>given a start date and the usual travel times... can't that be used for a separation (if I don't share orders)?
05:57<@Rubidium>it can, but then you already could without anything that I just added by 'timing' the arrival+late counter reset just right
05:59-!-Progman [] has joined #openttd
06:09<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: yes, but it's very tedious, especially if adding vehicles to an existing line
06:12<@Rubidium>too bad headway isn't perfect either; I haven't been able to find the trick to set a start date *and* use headway
06:12<@Rubidium>vehicles always seem to end up having timetables that do not coincide with my wishes
06:13-!-Singaporekid [] has joined #openttd
06:16<Eddi|zuHause>yeah, and i totally can't handle this inner-city traffic without a subway...
06:18<@Rubidium>6 inch or footlong subway?
06:19<Eddi|zuHause>the bigger the better ;)
06:19<planetmaker>size matters, eh? ;-)
06:23<@Rubidium>that's quite an old build
06:23<Eddi|zuHause>i hate scp... it says "100%" while it is not finished by far...
06:23<@Rubidium>although... from scp's point of view it has sent 100% to the OS' send buffer
06:24<Eddi|zuHause>then i should decrease the send buffer somewhere..
06:24<Eddi|zuHause>where do i do that?
06:25<Eddi|zuHause>yes, the build is from when i updated the timetable patch...
06:26<@Rubidium>/proc/sys/net/core/wmem_max ?
06:27<Eddi|zuHause>says 131071
06:27<Eddi|zuHause>is that byte?
06:28<@Rubidium>I hope so :)
06:29<@Rubidium>cause ~128 MiB is a bit excessive
06:30<Eddi|zuHause>hm, no, that didn't help
06:30<@Rubidium>then I have no clue
06:31<Eddi|zuHause>still says 100% (of 528KB) immediately
06:31<@Rubidium>except limiting the upload speed
06:34<CIA-4>OpenTTD: rubidium * r18296 /trunk/src/vehicle_gui.cpp: -Codechange: show the next 4 orders instead of the first 4 orders in the ship/aircraft vehicle lists
06:35-!-|Terkhen| [kvirc@] has joined #openttd
06:36<@Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: what do I have to envision with the station timetables?
06:36<Eddi|zuHause>i'm not sure either, i think i screwed up that part of the gui when updating
06:37<@Rubidium>oh... ctrl-click on the vehicle in the station window
06:37<Eddi|zuHause>some things are very hidden ;)
06:38<Eddi|zuHause>there was also some thing about sorting vehicles by planned arrival, expected arrival or lateness

06:52-!-|Terkhen| is now known as Terkhen
06:53<Eddi|zuHause>this city is even worse:,%2031.%20Jul%201967.png
06:55-!-asilv [] has joined #openttd
07:01<asilv>i should perhaps make an option to reduce passenger/mail generation for swedish shouses set at some point...
07:08-!-lugo [] has joined #openttd
07:09<Eddi|zuHause>that could be useful
07:10<Eddi|zuHause>but possibly coordinate that with other house sets like TTRS or TaI
07:10-!-Fuco [] has joined #openttd
07:11-!-Terkhen [kvirc@] has quit [Quit: ...]
07:12<asilv>Tai is quite different from other houseset with its town size restrictions etc, and should not be mixed with other sets imo. I agree for other sets however
07:13<asilv>the problem is that the two main housesets ttrs and nacities don't seem to be actively developed anymore
07:15<planetmaker>there's a 3rd set: swedish ;-)
07:16<Eddi|zuHause>no, that's the set we are originally talking about ;)
07:16<planetmaker>and I would still like to convince you to use the DevZone as your repository ;-)
07:16<asilv>i guess i could ask zimmlock if he allows to make updated "cargodist edition" of ttrs, with reduced passengers and modified house propabilities
07:16<planetmaker>asilv: the TTRS license should allow to modify it. It explicitly grants this permission
07:17-!-KenjiE20 [~KenjiE20@] has joined #openttd
07:17<Eddi|zuHause>anyway, as you are here, i have a very basic concern with all the house sets out there: why do the houses have to be green?
07:17<planetmaker>along the lines of "free to use and modify for (O)TTD(P) use"
07:17<asilv>i don't draw them i just code :p
07:18<asilv>but whats wrong with green houses?
07:18<asilv>and there aren't that many of them anyway
07:18<Eddi|zuHause>not many? about half of the houses in every city here are green...
07:19<Eddi|zuHause>green is ugly...
07:20<asilv>if I count correctly there are two green houses in swedish set
07:21<asilv>many others have green roofs however
07:23<Eddi|zuHause>take for example this screenshot:,%2011.%20Jul%201967.png <- between Mühlheim Transfer and Mühlheim Zentrum there are two houses with green roof and one with green front, and lots of other houses that way, not counting the TTRS ones
07:27<asilv>well i'm not sure if there is anything wrong with green spesifically, but maybe there are too many colourful buildings in general
07:27<Eddi|zuHause>yes, and there are too many skyscrapers in TTRS, and lots of other stuff...
07:28<Eddi|zuHause>in general, many GRFs focus too much on "beautiful" desinger-stuff, and miss out on the basic stuff
07:28<asilv>somewhat true, i agree
07:30<planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause: with "basic stuff" you mean the not-so-fancy houses?
07:30<Eddi|zuHause>yes, for example
07:30<Eddi|zuHause>also bridges
07:30<planetmaker>e.g. kind of default houses which add to the usual urban tristesse?
07:30<Eddi|zuHause>or stations
07:31<planetmaker>Well... bridges and stations are separate grfs IMO.
07:32<planetmaker>something worthwhile to take up sometime might be to enhance TBRS with the snowy and japanese bridge versions. Other versions are there, too. And make one newgrf out of it.
07:33-!-andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
07:33<planetmaker>asilv: but one thing I just wrote in a forum posting: it's nice that you have your set GPL. Only it allowed me to understand how those things really work by looking at it as good examples :-)
07:33<asilv>i'm not sure how the snowy versions could be used as there is no varaction2 for bridges
07:33<planetmaker>thanks! :-)
07:34<planetmaker>oh, there isn't? Hm... sad
07:34<asilv>it's good if it's helpfull to someone
07:34<asilv>I have to admit that it isn't very well commented in many places
07:35<planetmaker>only the wiki alone at my disposal would have left me wondering in places, I think
07:35<planetmaker>it's alright, I think :-)
07:36<asilv>well, you haven't seen the new road sensitive buildings code
07:36<planetmaker>So IMO it was a good example that it helped to have open source, even if it isn't copied, it helps by example :-)
07:36<asilv>it's one big hack :p
07:36-!-andythenorth [] has quit []
07:36<planetmaker>hehe :-)
07:37<asilv>as it uses animition frames to store information about house directions
07:37<planetmaker>I thought of going in that direction, too. There are some houses in the comic set which seem to have a preferred road side.
07:37<planetmaker>Depending on the road layout I would use one house or another
07:37<planetmaker>couldn't that be done with varaction 60+x instead?
07:38<asilv>yes, but then they change direction when for example bus station is built
07:38<planetmaker>hm, that's bad indeed.
07:40<asilv>so I decide the direction when house is built with var (maybe 64?) and store that with animation frame
07:40-!-andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
07:41<asilv>62 it is not 64
07:43<planetmaker>what about 67?
07:43<planetmaker>or 66
07:43-!-Mark [] has joined #openttd
07:44<planetmaker>it doesn't give you road. But it gives you "no house"
07:45<asilv>hmm, but then houses could be facing to water or industries or whatever
07:46-!-andythenorth [] has quit [Quit: andythenorth]
07:47<planetmaker>they could, yes
07:47<planetmaker>But you can check for water by means of 62
07:47<blathijs>How about 42?
07:47<Sacro>it's a good number
07:49<planetmaker>blathijs: "nearby" is needed, so it needs to be some 60+x number. But yeah...
07:50<asilv>anyway, some people complained that houses should not in general change direction after they are built, no matter what happens. and the code already works so it is not that big problem
07:50<planetmaker>I guess you have kind of eternal animation frames?
07:51<asilv>yes the frame selection code is run if frame is 0, otherwise frames 1-8 show the direction
07:52<asilv>and frame is never changed if it isn't 0
07:53<asilv>George gets credit for the idea
07:53<planetmaker>good one, yes
07:53<planetmaker>probably better than many checks
07:56-!-andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
07:56<asilv>yeah, it isn't actually that big hack, but using animation frames to store information just feels wrong
07:58<planetmaker>I agree. Somewhat. But if you skip the animation from that, it's right again :-)

08:05<planetmaker>Anyway, I'm looking forward to the next version! :-)
08:07<asilv>should be out soon
08:07<asilv>maybe even tomorrow
08:08<asilv>but before end of the month anyway
08:13<planetmaker>wow. Good news :-)
08:17<asilv>i'm still wondering whether the 42 was serious suggestion or a hitchhiker's guide reference :p
08:18<planetmaker>I think it was serious. But 62 would be more appropriate as you don't want to investigate the very tile of your house ;-)
08:18<planetmaker>but anything is possible
08:19<asilv>42 is town zone
08:19<planetmaker>ah, damz, they don't correspond
08:20<planetmaker> <-- btw. Anyone who can clearify what's the difference between feature 07, vars 60 and 61?
08:20<planetmaker>Looks to me like some kind of error...
08:22<asilv>60 = original ttd houses, 61 = newgrf houses from the same grf, i think
08:22<planetmaker>maybe I just don't understand the difference between "new" and "old" type house number.
08:22<planetmaker>yeah, maybe.
08:24-!-glx [glx@2a01:e35:2f59:c7c0:a07f:68ab:586e:abb1] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
08:24<asilv>for houses each grf has it's own ids so there can be multiple houses with same id without problems, unlike vehicles for example

08:35<planetmaker>hm... makes sense.
08:38<Eddi|zuHause>hm... headway gets somewhat confused when replacing vehicles...
08:46<Eddi|zuHause>hm²... something suddenly slows down my game

16:48<planetmaker>it needs to draw all vehicles
16:50<Eddi|zuHause>but it does not repeatedly need to redraw everything
16:52<Eddi|zuHause>i have the feeling that the metropolitan airport is even more useless than the city airport
16:52<Fast2>Is there a quick way for measuring the length from one point on the map to another (in tiles)?

17:01<planetmaker>Yes, there is. If it's a straight line

17:01<@Belugas>didn't meush got his tool in trunK?
17:01<planetmaker>and set it to "enable"
17:01<@Belugas>yeah.. that one
17:01<planetmaker>quite handy.
17:02<planetmaker>Then use the cost estimation so that you don't accidentially build the road or rail

17:22<Fast2>I admit, I overlooked it. But it's still not an extra tool. A oppourtunity to get the length of a track, you are planning to build, would be great :)
17:23<Eddi|zuHause>that is exactly what it does

17:41<Fast2>I'm playing on 1024^2 and it's pretty fast (but I'm still at the beginning)
17:41<Fast2>Big maps are cool
17:42<Fast2>It's time to leave for me. Good night.
17:43<frosch123>iirc i only once tried to play a 1024^2 map: it was the first game with ottd after previously playing ttdp, and i though "cool, big maps". i guess i explored the map for about 1 minute, and then wondered who coded such a stupid thing :p
17:45<@Rubidium>guess the most 'big map size' fanatics 'just' want a 1048576x2 map so the can run trains over very long distances making very huge amounts of money
17:45<Fast2>One time, I even had a 2048^2 :D That was slow (and I would say it's only interesting for large multiplayer games). But 1024 is good, I think.
17:46<planetmaker>Fast2: it's not even interesting for MP games
17:46<CIA-4>OpenTTD: frosch * r18303 /trunk/src/widget.cpp: -Fix: Widget indices are valid when >= 0.
17:46<planetmaker>People simply cannot play those maps online. You never use such map to their potential and 1024^2 is WAY more fun

19:13<PeterT>I just patched r18279 with diaganol level and clear
19:13<SmatZ>so yes, it is dangerous
19:13<PeterT>and I did ./configure --revision=r18279
19:13<SmatZ>don't try it, you will desync
19:13<SmatZ>(nothing worse than desync can't usually happen)
19:13<PeterT>Too late, sorry
19:14<PeterT>I'm already compiling
19:14<PeterT>another question: why does each blitter needs it's own cpp file?
19:14<SmatZ>you will desync/be kicked after using of those diagonal abilities
19:14<SmatZ>why not?
19:14<SmatZ>code readability
19:14<KenjiE20>why does anything? why not put openttd in one big cpp
19:15<PeterT>why not put openttd in one big cpp <--- good idea
19:16<+glx>some compilers may not like that
19:16<+glx>some compilers may do better optimisation too :)
19:16<PeterT>Kenji/others: do you always go to bed at 12AM?
19:17<KenjiE20>why not?
19:17<+glx>and 12AM was 1 hour ago
19:17<PeterT>Well, Kenji lives in England
19:18<PeterT>why not? <--- depends, when do you get up?
19:18<KenjiE20>I get up when I get, why do you care?
