06:47<ddfreyne>hmm… I cannot find the changes for 1.0.x. where should I look for them?
06:47<PeterT>and changelog.txt
06:47<ddfreyne>ahh, thanks… not sure why I didn’t find that
06:49<@Rubidium>heh, that wiki page is still incomplete?

06:52-!-OwenS [] has joined #openttd
06:55<ddfreyne>hmm… is cargodest on the roadmap for a certain release?
06:56<planetmaker>nope. CargodEst is dead for a year
06:56<ddfreyne>no activity on the branch either?
06:56<planetmaker>otherwise it woulnd't be dead
06:56<ddfreyne>hm, checked out the repository and seems like it. aw.
06:57<planetmaker>developer vanished (again)
06:57-!-DJNekkid [] has joined #openttd
06:57<roboboy>try cargod?st
06:58<ddfreyne>planetmaker: that sucks
06:58<planetmaker>that's life, I guess
06:58<ddfreyne>planetmaker: as far as I can tell (and you’ll have to excuse me for not being really involved in the community and development) the branch was well on its way and it seemed playable
06:58<planetmaker>you could try cargodIst
06:59<planetmaker>but that's far from complete, too
06:59-!-Biolunar [] has joined #openttd
06:59<roboboy>is cargodest or cargodist prefered for inclusion once one is finished
06:59<planetmaker>roboboy, who knows?
07:00<@Rubidium>the only answer I could give to that question is "no"
07:00<planetmaker>boost vs. desync :-P
07:00<roboboy>so whichever is done first and best
07:00<@Rubidium>under the assumption that "one" means any "cargo has destination"-implementation
07:04<ddfreyne>ahh, cargodist is indeed in active development I see
07:07<Forked>DJNekkid: come and pick up your new DSL modem. Should sort out your connection issues.

08:00<OwenS> <-- I am impressed!
08:01<OwenS>nand1.png is a zoom on on one of the full adder elements
08:06-!-ptr [] has joined #openttd
08:10<FauxFaux>Now just make the game engine fast enough and supportive of big enough maps that we can have a useful turing machine. ¬_¬
08:12<OwenS>FauxFaux: A bit of NAND-based memory takes up ~10x10 tiles. BIIIG maps :p
08:13<OwenS>If I added memory to ProgSigs, then it would be interesting, however (Though building the thing would be insane)
08:13<FauxFaux>Iirc she was cheating and generating the gates anyway.
08:14<OwenS>Presumably copy & paste
08:14<FauxFaux>I thought it was save files, but maybe.
08:14<OwenS>Because copy & paste is completely unaware of signal programs :D
08:16<OwenS>Also: How do you decide which signal a lookup should look at? One adjusted for the paste's location? The original? What if you're now looking at a signalless tile? What if you're looking at a signal you can't legally inspect?
08:17<__ln__>is that an adder?
08:17<OwenS>Yes. An 8-bit full adder
08:18<@Rubidium>OwenS: so in effect progsigs makes "copy&paste" completely infeasible
08:18<OwenS>Rubidium: If you copy the signal program, it makes it very complex
08:18<FauxFaux>Excel manages it. </not entirely j$o$k$e suggestion>
08:19<FauxFaux>The next trick is to implement programmable signals in pure ottd nand gates.
08:19<OwenS>It's possible, you would just have to deal with the corner cases (Though I'd be happy to do so)
08:19<OwenS>**happy to help do so
08:20<OwenS>I think I'd decide that references to signals inside the copy region are relative, to ones outside are absolute

08:20-!-mode/#openttd [+v glx] by ChanServ
08:22<OwenS>Then it would be corner case checking, and working out the interface that c&p would use to do the actual pasting
08:22-!-lugo [] has joined #openttd
08:25<OwenS>(It would need an interface which returns the instruction ID of the just-added (by DoCommandP) instruction, and also need to deal with corner cases, like Start/End/Else/Endif pseudo instructions)

08:30<OwenS>Rubidium: Its not much more than I'll deal with if/when I add the ability to save programs

09:18<DJNekkid>(if i saied it two times, sorry, but it looked like i were disconnected)
09:19<planetmaker>you said it only once
09:19<@Belugas>looks like Europ caught up time :)
09:20<@Belugas>planetmaker, Rubidium, i salute you humbly and respectfully
09:25-!-DanMacK [~DanMacK@] has joined #openttd
09:25<@Rubidium>DJNekkid: I must say, I like you writing "saied" :) "sayed" I can imagine because of 'just' appending '-ed', although "said" is the right way of writing. But "saied" looks like a mixup

10:45<Eddi|zuHause>you realize that carry-ripple-adders aren't actually used anywhere except in float-multiplications...
10:46<Eddi|zuHause>it's both slow and has signal strength issues
10:48-!-aber [] has joined #openttd
10:57<@Rubidium>argh.... stupid DST... now I'm hungry at the wrong time
10:58<@Rubidium>hungry two hours before the "winter time" time that is :(
11:00<planetmaker>I have a spare carrot here.... :-)
11:00<planetmaker>and now I need another :-(
11:02-!-knome [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
11:04<aber>spare carrot???
11:04<Eddi|zuHause>Rubidium: you moved the clock in the wrong direction? :)
11:06<@Rubidium>doubtful, because I didn't move the clock
11:12<planetmaker>aber, yes, I have a bunch of carrots in my office. They feed me when I'm hungry but when it's not yet feeding time
11:14<aber>planetmaker, one day, it was more like a week, noo like a month. I harvested 8 tons of carrots. Since then i'm a little strange about carrots... :)
11:15<Eddi|zuHause>you wished you had a spare carrot back then :p
11:15<planetmaker>they make healthier "snack" than chocolate or alike
11:16<Eddi|zuHause>snacks shouldn't be healthy... they should be "brain food"
11:16<Eddi|zuHause>... i.e. energy that the stomach doesn't have to process
11:16<Eddi|zuHause>so it gets to the brain faster
11:18<@Rubidium>I don't need stuff that makes my brain go faster... then I'll have even more trouble keeping up with my thoughts when writing them down
11:25<@Belugas>yup... same as Rubidium in here. Brian goes fast enough as it is. no need more coffee than the 4 I took since this morning
11:26-!-DJNekkid [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:26<aber>4 l, thats pretty much i'd say
11:26<@Rubidium>aber: Belugas isn't an American that slurps ventis
11:26<lennard>4 I != 4L
11:28<@Belugas>indeed not...
11:28-!-Brianetta [] has joined #openttd
11:28<@Belugas>the I stands for ME...
11:28<@Rubidium>oh, sorry a trenta is more like a liter than a venti
11:29<@Rubidium>can't remember trenta's being sold in Japan though
11:30<aber>Il maybe i should change the font to something... different Il
11:33<aber>maybe i should complain to the european union...
11:34<@Rubidium>for the broken font on your computer?
11:35<aber>it shouldn't be allowed to produce fonts with such a little difference between two letters... That is very dangerous...
11:38<Eddi|zuHause>yeah, we totally need a regulation on font shapes :p
11:40<planetmaker>72dot size. Everywhere.
11:43<@Belugas>the world would be a better place if everything was standardized. one money, one langage, one measure system, one god or many, for what it's worth...
11:44-!-DJNekkid [] has joined #openttd
11:46*Rubidium would vote for no gods
11:46<Eddi|zuHause>one time zone! :p
11:46*Belugas votes for both suggestions!
11:47<aber>i would say first attack britain...
11:47<@Rubidium>asking (and getting!) forgiveness from god for killing someone is just plain stupid
11:47*fjb supports Rubidium.
11:47<+glx>killing in name of god is worse
11:47<Eddi|zuHause>that's only a symptom, not the cause
11:48<@Belugas>killing or fighting in name of anyone/anything is bad as hell
11:48<Eddi|zuHause>if there were no religions, people'd find other reasons to kill...
11:48<+glx>like petrol ?
11:48<aber>haha, i believe thats not the only reason...
11:48-!-frosch123 [] has joined #openttd
11:49<@Rubidium>don't forgets the WMD (ways of mass deception)
11:49<aber>... the biggest chance to get killed is from your own wife or husband...
11:50<@Rubidium>aber: lies... it's your parents
11:50<aber>better get the cap back on the toothpaste...
11:51<@Rubidium>oh, if you need to think about that then it's already way too late to reduce the chance of getting killed

13:29-!-sparr [] has joined #openttd
13:31<Jolteon>In the time you went, Rubidium declared war on orudge, orudge nuked Rubidium, a treaty was signed, we all witnessed it, andythenorth.
13:31<andythenorth>Rubidium: timescale: galactic?
13:35<@Rubidium>in that case... there was a huge rock that was impacted by a big rock, that made a mess resulting in two rocks spinning around eachother. Then more (much) smaller rocks hit the rocks.

14:02<andythenorth>I find it bizarre that people are so protective over graphics.
14:02<andythenorth>but then no-one has horribly ripped off any of mine yet :o
14:03*andythenorth GPL la la la la la la la
14:03<frosch123>maybe they are too ugly :p
14:04<frosch123>but yes, i also wondered why so many keep them that restrictive
14:05<andythenorth>I make mine GPL because I want to be *sure* that other people can use them in a proper way.
14:05<@Rubidium>frosch123: because they "steal" from Simon
14:05<blathijs>Perhaps the difference between artists and coders is that coders are used to using other people's code, whereas artists are used to creating their own artwork
14:05<blathijs>e.g., artists aren't used to being on the receiving side
14:05<andythenorth>I want to wade into that argument, especially against mb
14:06<andythenorth>blathijs: exactly. the code is given freely, for the good of the game. I find it offensive that mb can say a "coder" can't see how an artist is 'special'
14:06<planetmaker>missing a 'not'? ;-)
14:07<andythenorth>so tempted.....I don't want to knock Irwe's thread massively OT though :o
14:07<andythenorth>meh internet dramas
14:07<andythenorth>hi George :)
14:07<George>What's the sprites limit in OTTD?
14:07-!-SmatZ__ [~Miranda@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
14:07<frosch123>for what sprites?
14:07<George>Trains and wagons
14:08*Rubidium makes a safe bet: you computer's memory
14:08<frosch123>i guess your memory limit
14:08<@Rubidium>@calc 1024*1048576/2**24
14:08<@DorpsGek>Rubidium: 64
14:09<George>64 trains?
14:09<@Rubidium>so the sprites may be at most 64 bytes (including metadata) to hit the limit (if it's 16 million)
14:09<Jupix>andythenorth: I've got two answers to your question, the first is you should read over some of Sergej_S:s threads (again?), and the second is that in the 32bpp field at least, it's not the artists running for absolute clarity in matters of licensing, it's the administrators, who want to make sure stuff that ends up in a baseset conversion doesn't have a questionable legal background
14:10-!-DJ_Nekkid [] has joined #openttd
14:10-!-DJNekkid [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
14:11<George>so, 16 mln trains?
14:12-!-sparr [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
14:12<frosch123>well, more than you can build in one game
14:12<planetmaker>George, you can 'only' define 64k vehicle ids.
14:12<andythenorth>Jupix: I've never read a thread by Sergej_S....what am I missing?
14:12<frosch123>planetmaker: but everyone of them can look different every day :p
14:13<planetmaker>the polymorphic train fleet
14:13<@Rubidium>George: no, 16-ish million sprites
14:13<frosch123>andythenorth: some weird old guy, putting random 32bpp graphics into ottd screenshots
14:14<andythenorth>I don't go in the 3sbpp forum :P
14:14<Jupix>andythenorth: when artists posted (preliminary) preview renders of their work, he took them without permission to create large "megapacks" of his own ... and did a bloody poor job of it, too, most artists were royally pissed and he was banned as a result
14:14<Jupix>also, he didn't speak english
14:14<@Rubidium>but given normal sprite sizes you can't hit that limit before running out of memory on < 4GB machines
14:14<blathijs>Do I need the newest grfcodec to build opengfx, or can I use r2294 as well?
14:15<planetmaker>blathijs, I think it should be fine
14:15<blathijs>planetmaker: k, thanks
14:15<@Rubidium>blathijs: 2294 should work, just check the md5 checksums (though the make check thingy is currently a bit broken)
14:15<andythenorth>Jupix: so do people use the mega packs?
14:15<@Rubidium>blathijs: in other words, new OpenGFX/OpenSFX versions are due 'soon'
14:16<Jupix>andythenorth: yes, I would imagine anyone who wants 32bpp to "just work" uses them, dl'ing and installing individual tars is... so 2007.
14:17<andythenorth>Jupix: where are they distributed?
14:17<Jupix>in the 32bpp forums. :D
14:17<blathijs>Rubidium: Uh? I don't see how those remarks relate. Also, I thought that yesterday's OpenGFX release would be the last one before 1.0 at least?
14:18<George>Rubidium: Thank you
14:19-!-Zuu [] has joined #openttd
14:20<@Rubidium>blathijs: yeah, but I really hope (for the sake of getting the downstream packaging right) that there'll be a new OpenGFX; there will be a new OpenSFX
14:20<andythenorth>Jupix: so the forums are used to distribute material which infringes copyright? easily solved I would think
14:20<@Rubidium>andythenorth: yeah, take down zernebok!

14:21<blathijs>Rubidium: What is there to get right?
14:21<@Rubidium>blathijs: the workings of "make check"
14:21<Jupix>andythenorth: oh, in sergey's case they were presented on nearly unusable websites, hosted on some nameless russian servers that were dead slow
14:21-!-sparr [] has joined #openttd
14:22<andythenorth>Jupix: hmmm....I don't have a good answer to that particular case :o
14:22<blathijs>Rubidium: What's the idea behind that? When building the source tarball, the md5's of the official builds are included?
14:22<Jupix>andythenorth: yeah... he didn't have either, apart from "if you have better hosting space to donate, go right ahead"
14:23<Jupix>in broken babelfish english, of course :D
14:23<@Rubidium>blathijs: yes; the content server stuff depends on the md5 checksums, so if they mismatch you might get into a situation where it'll continuously think that you don't have the newest OpenGFX/OpenSFX yet
14:24<@Rubidium>blathijs: and then it'll download it again, just to find out it has two sets with the same version and then it 'ignores' one with a big chance that the 'wrong' one is ignored (the wrong one is the one that isn't on the content server)
14:24*andythenorth considers starting yet-another-use-the-GPL-forum-bunfight, just for entertainment :P
14:25<@Rubidium>andythenorth: just search for sets that include your GPL-ed graphics (or derivates of your graphics). Then you can simply claim that the set is also GPL :)
14:26<planetmaker>hihi :-)
14:26<aber>GPL is a strange thing...
14:26<@Rubidium>and for those who haven't realised it yet... if you use OpenGFX sprites to base your work on :)
14:26<frosch123>hmm, maybe if you use the affero gpl you might claim getting the source of the server in case it runs them

14:28<andythenorth>When I start making graphics I decided not to worry about people pillaging them
14:28<andythenorth>it's going to happen
14:28<blathijs>Bah, building Debian packages is not working right now, it seems my build root points to, which is broken atm

14:29<blathijs>Rubidium: Its only a few commands, but I can't be bothered right now.. :-)
14:30<andythenorth>planetmaker: if I prep a FIRS 0.1.1 bug fix, do you have a one-shot way to do the release yet?
14:30<blathijs>I'll try again when it is back up (also, waiting a few days with grfcodec makes sure that the current version propagates to testing)
14:30<planetmaker>andythenorth, "one-shot-way" is something I wouldn't use on a release ;-)
14:31<andythenorth>two shot?
14:31<planetmaker>but in principle: hg tag 0.1.1
14:31<planetmaker>hg up 0.1.1
14:31<planetmaker>make bundle_zip
14:31<planetmaker>and upload that to bananas
14:31<planetmaker>hg up

14:48<Ryand-Smith>put it this way
14:48<Ryand-Smith>Breakdowns are semi realistic for new units
14:48<Ryand-Smith>as that I feel is the period when you are breaking in the unit, you will find odd problems
14:49<Ryand-Smith>But after the first few years or so they should stop
14:49<OwenS>Or reliability goes up exponentially
14:50<OwenS>And after a while maintanance just becomes more expensive?
14:50<Ryand-Smith>that represents how you can't find parts for old things, and they just wear down
14:51<Ryand-Smith>hell, they replaced the GG1s due to parts (yay using PCBs for air filters)
14:51<Ryand-Smith>However, some companies use busses for 30 years instead of the 20 or so they were meant to last, and they do break down more often then younger units
14:52<OwenS>By PCBs I presume you mean Polychlorinated Bithingies, not Printec Circuit Boards :p
14:52<Ryand-Smith>That's the one
14:52<Ryand-Smith>I don't even think the GG1 had that kind of electronics
14:52<OwenS>'round here companies run some busses around ~30 years old...
14:53<OwenS>You can tell as they have XYZ 000 old style registrations...
14:53<Ryand-Smith>I'm in NJ, we ideally would replace the 30 year old flexible busses, BUT there isn't money and the new electric ones ...
14:53<Ryand-Smith>they don't work in rain very well
14:54<Ryand-Smith>the sad thing is the company who made the busses went under so they have to get people to make parts just for them
14:54<aber>in old europe we use still gas in busses...
14:55<Ryand-Smith>We have fancy LNG busses
14:55<Ryand-Smith>and flywheels
14:55<Ryand-Smith>but mostly diesel fuel, with some diesel electric prototypes
14:56<aber>gas is cleaner and way more fun if it explodes...
14:56<Ryand-Smith>LNG or gasoline?

15:46<andythenorth>they can't fly
15:46<andythenorth>*stupid* ships :P
15:47<andythenorth>lets cut them out of the game. we could fit more trains in that way
15:47<Singaporekid>we could fit the trains on the ships
15:47<andythenorth>someone told me recently OTTD is a train game anyway
15:47<andythenorth>new track type: 'ships'
15:48<sparr>you know that's not what i meant
15:48<Singaporekid>I would play with that grf
15:48<@Rubidium>10:24 < Ammler> someone is banned from openttd
15:48<andythenorth>5mph, it's a bridge that only draws sprites under the train, sprites are 'train ferry'
15:50<@Rubidium>ships have an insane parallel loading capability
15:50<andythenorth>sparr: I know that's not what you meant ;)
15:51<@Rubidium> <- they're pretty useful
15:54<andythenorth>he, my games are almost orthogonal to the one in that screenshot
15:55<sparr>Rubidium: they are useful if you are near water, which is not usually

15:57<@Rubidium>andythenorth: my goal was to move a million pieces of cargo per year
15:58<andythenorth>did you achieve it?
15:58<DJ_Nekkid>and on a 256^2 map?
15:58<@Rubidium>andythenorth: yes
15:58<@Rubidium>DJ_Nekkid: no, 128x128
16:00<sparr>do pax count?
16:00<andythenorth>my current game: quite near water quite often :)
16:01<@Rubidium>for comparison, 1 million pieces of cargo moved per year is somewhat commun in the more recent openttdcoop games, which use a 512x1024-ish map for that
16:02<theholyduck>andythenorth, atleast you dont have creeping-networkitis
16:02<theholyduck>i cant build a network anymore without planning atleast 3 lines in each direction
16:02<theholyduck>and starting designing more and more shit before anything even works

16:03<andythenorth>theholyduck: ship early, ship often
16:03<andythenorth>do something, get the benefit, do some more stuff :)
16:04<andythenorth>ideally using ships :P
16:04<theholyduck>andythenorth, well the last time i tried that,
16:04<theholyduck>i ended up with this 60x60 tile area, that was my merging point for everything
16:04<theholyduck>and every time i tried to do a change, i had to spend 30 minutes fixing it
16:05<theholyduck>rapidly expanding a existing network can lead to pain and suffering
16:05<andythenorth>so can rapidly expanding a real business :P
16:06<theholyduck>andythenorth, well, problem with ships is, they're not very cost efficent
16:06<theholyduck>you can actually design a ship based system that looses you money
16:06<@Rubidium>just don't hurry that much; it'll probably reduce the pain and suffering of RSI and such
16:06<theholyduck>wich i found out the hardway
16:06<andythenorth>theholyduck: well that's just bad game tactics :)
16:06<theholyduck>andythenorth, no, just ships being slow
16:07<theholyduck>andythenorth, basicly, my original design called for ships getting oil from all over and bringing it to a central drop site
16:07<andythenorth>my current game: trams, narrow gauge, standard gauge, ships, and some trucks somewhere
16:07<theholyduck>but this plan actually lost money due the ships and then trains costing more to run than i earned from the oil
16:07<PeterT>andythenorth: w00t
16:07<PeterT>andythenorth: nice drawings
16:08<theholyduck>so i had to decentralize the whole thing
16:08<theholyduck>with multiple drop-points
16:08<theholyduck>so that the slowness of the boats didnt kill my profit margins

16:10<andythenorth>Ships + trucks + trams + planes.
16:11<andythenorth>the planes fly in engineering supplies, trucks on a feeder system take them to the sand pit
16:11<andythenorth>trams haul the sand to the dock
16:11<theholyduck>i dont like planes, ship and trucks for 1 more reason
16:11<theholyduck>its like playing connect the dots
16:11<theholyduck>with planes its just, build more airports, build more planes, set up routes, and go
16:12<theholyduck>theres no "creativity" invovled
16:13<theholyduck>with a trains you can build complex network with signaling, schedules, priorities and what not
16:14<andythenorth>theholyduck: try using multiple transport types with transfer orders
16:14<andythenorth>getting your supply chain working is a whole other challenge then

18:38<Eddi|zuHause>have a redundant raid card :)
18:38<__ln__>It's a mess when your boot partition gets broken in a software raid.
18:39<OwenS`Phone>Also, hard raid uses pfopetietry disk formats
18:39<__ln__>Besides, Linux softraid doesn't work on Windows 7, to which I switched to two days ago.
