00:15<DanMacK>Hello all
00:20<Mazur>If you have a set of grouped trains on shread orders, and you actuvate the timerable on one of them, will hte timetable get shares, as well? And if so, will hte game space the set out over the trajectory they must follow?
00:21<Mazur>shrad oorders, rather than shread.

00:50<russell_h>does anyone know where I can download opengfx?
00:51<Eddi|zuHause>google knows. the installer knows. the game knows, the website knows...
00:52<russell_h>the website seems to be down
00:52<Eddi|zuHause>which website?
00:54<russell_h>pretty much anything on as far as I can tell
00:55<Eddi|zuHause>then try this?
00:55<russell_h>ah, looks like things are mirrored on
00:55<russell_h>yeah, that

03:59-!-zombie_monkey [~krum@] has joined #openttd
03:59<zombie_monkey>any advice on which AI to use? all of the ones I've tried so far have crashed
03:59<zombie_monkey>like, they don't even start
04:00-!-Terkhen [] has joined #openttd
04:02<zombie_monkey>at the time they're supposed to start playing I get a message in the AI debugger
04:02<zombie_monkey>and that's it.
04:04<planetmaker>then try the other ones :-)
04:04<planetmaker>and try with their newest versions
04:05<planetmaker>especially NoCAB gets currently very frequent updates.
04:05<zombie_monkey>I tried NoCab, Admiral, Simple and Rondja
04:06<planetmaker>Give them a 2nd chance. And also try CluelessPlus
04:06<zombie_monkey>rondje didn't crash, and it built and HQ and stopped
04:06<zombie_monkey>the otehr ones crashed
04:06<planetmaker>Also those AIs can only get better, if you help the authors by making decent bug reports about their respective AIs.
04:06<zombie_monkey>oh, wait, it crashed now
04:06<zombie_monkey>planetmaker: yeah, I know
04:07<zombie_monkey>it's just... am I doing something wrong?
04:07<zombie_monkey>I mean sure, I'd love to help with bug reports but they're not working at all
04:07<planetmaker>for the end user there's not much more you can do than start the AI.
04:08<planetmaker>While all those AI are not 100% stable, they usually do the job for me quite fine, especially AdmiralAI.
04:08<planetmaker>And then NoCAB and CluelessPlus and Rondje
04:08<planetmaker>ChoCho might still be interesting but developement seems to have stalled.
04:10<zombie_monkey>planetmaker: maybe you have to play on specific map settings so they don't crash?
04:19-!-rhaeder [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
04:21-!-roboboy [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:22<zombie_monkey>well I odn't know what the problem is but none of them work at all.
04:22-!-zombie_monkey [~krum@] has quit [Quit: leaving]
04:25<Terkhen>what message do you get?
04:26<ragzid>Terkhen: he left
04:27-!-roboboy [] has joined #openttd
04:28<Terkhen>one of the few cons of having join / part in a different window
04:29<ragzid>that's why I'm using irssi in default configuration :)
04:30<ragzid>anyway, time to go to school, test of integration is waiting...
04:31<jordi>blathijs, Rubidium: the Ubuntu stuff got an OK, it's now on the hands of the release team
04:31<@Rubidium>jordi: lovely!
04:32<blathijs>jordi: You mean the sponsor OK, right?
04:32<jordi>and I have instructions to prod release team members if they don't say anything soon
04:32<jordi>this needs testing ASAP
04:33<jordi>so I'll use more superpowers because I know a few of the release team members well
04:34-!-Neon [] has joined #openttd
04:45-!-Eddi|zuHause [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:46<@Rubidium>yesterday 11740 downloads of OpenTTD (11219 of 1.0.0, 77% Windows, 15% Debian/Ubuntu, 4% Linux generic, 3% source). Furthermore 81960 BaNaNaS downloads (85% via the mirror). 138 GiB offloaded to the mirror, 77 GiB by our own server (80% of that HTTP traffic)
04:47<planetmaker>Nearly 10x the usual load, if I see that correctly
04:48<@Rubidium>planetmaker: bandwidth wise it is (at least comparing to pre 1.0.0-beta)
04:49<@Rubidium>2009 average is roughly 2000 binary downloads a day
04:49<@Rubidium>and some 15000 bananas downloads a day
04:50<@Rubidium>and 600 GiB a month
04:50-!-Mrruben5 [] has joined #openttd
04:50<jordi>Rubidium: who sponsors/pays for that bw?
04:51<@Rubidium>jordi: the main server, that's paid from the donations
04:51<@Rubidium>the mirrors are paid with appreciation
04:51<@Rubidium> <- when did the slashdot article surface? :)
04:52<@Rubidium> <- just the downloads per hour
04:52<planetmaker>Hehe :-)
04:53<planetmaker>but it seems only the smaller sub-peak might be slash-dot - related, given the download count of the last days...
04:54<@Rubidium>that second peak looks like Europeans coming home and downloading OpenTTD or so (after checking out the website at work)
04:54<planetmaker>Looking at it tells me that ~6000 ... 8000 were expected as opposed to the 11000 seen
04:55<planetmaker>so... 3-4k downloads due to slashdot :-)
04:56<TrueBrain>6000 is more like what would be expected
04:56<TrueBrain>so that make 5000 slashdot
04:57<@Rubidium>probably a bit more because of it being a tuesday which has less than in weekends and because monday was a holiday in Europe, i.e. TB's expectation is probably right/a little too high
04:57<planetmaker>hm, yeah
04:58<TrueBrain>we btw got 3760 visitors from slashdot
04:58<@Rubidium>and that's optimistic because with 1.0.0-beta1 we saw peak-40% after 5 days
04:58<TrueBrain>(which have their 'referer' active)
05:02-!-zombie_monkey [~krum@] has joined #openttd
05:03<zombie_monkey>hm, so the problem is nothing compiles, there are erros in the libraries, and sometimes the ais can't find the libraries
05:03<zombie_monkey>at all.
05:03<zombie_monkey>someone in the forums has the same problem
05:03<zombie_monkey>btw, downloading most things except ronje is not reflected in the online content download interface
05:04<zombie_monkey>although I can see them in ~/.openttd/ai/
05:04<planetmaker>AI libraries are loaded automatically as a dependency

05:53<dih>google translate? ^^
05:54<dih>just kidding ;-)
05:54<@peter1138>there are some OS X builds floating around, i suppose
05:54<dih>someone at the tt-forums built 1.0.0 for os x
05:54<dih>never tried it - perhaps pm knows more
06:05-!-ptr_ [] has joined #openttd
06:06<Galdar>this one works well :)
06:07<dih>Galdar: on which os exactly?

06:12-!-nico [] has joined #openttd
06:13<nico>i was wondering where the downloaded AIs were stocked
06:13<nico>because I tried moving the folder to another computer who cannot access the internet to get the AIs
06:13-!-ptr [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:13<nico>and there isn't any :<
06:13-!-ptr_ [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
06:17<nico>or, how could i change the default port to download the in game contents?
06:17<nico>please? :3
06:19<blathijs>nico: What port exactly and why do you want that?
06:20<jordi>blathijs: I need someone to test 1.0.0 in lucid and confirm SDL works ok
06:20<nico>cause the port of the in-game downloader is blocked here
06:20<nico>i vpn'd at home to download the files using the in game downloader
06:21<nico>then transfered the openttd folder
06:21<nico>and there wasn't any of the things i had downloaded, yet they are present on the distant computer
06:21<jordi>if there's any Ubuntu lucid user here,
06:21<dih>jordi: what's with a vm?
06:22<OwenS>nico, they're stored under your user profile folder
06:22<jordi>dih: lack of time
06:22<nico>indeed :3
06:23<jordi>dih: also, I'm happy with how well openttd works on squeeze right now. :)
06:23<blathijs>jordi: I'm already booting up beta-1 in Virtualbox :-)

06:39<blathijs>Bah, Lucid doesn't run in Virtualbox due to a virtualbox / kernel bug:
06:39<blathijs>Perhaps without ACPI
06:40<Noldo>dual booting is the way to go
06:40<Galdar>dih os x snow
06:40<blathijs>Noldo: Not for just doing some testing on the openttd package, really
06:40<blathijs>Noldo: Also, I don't have any free disk partitions for dual booting :-)
06:41<Noldo>lvm <3
06:41<blathijs>s/free disk partitions/unassigned lvm space/
06:41<OwenS>ZFS > LVM :P
06:41<blathijs>I've already had to free up space to download the ISO :-)
06:42<TrueBrain>omg, not that discusion again
06:43-!-TT1a1a1 [] has joined #openttd
06:43<TT1a1a1>hey guys
06:43<TT1a1a1>first off, congrats on the release of version 1
06:43-!-Galdar [] has quit [Quit: This computer has gone to sleep]
06:44<TT1a1a1>second, what can i do to get on an authorities good side?
06:44<TT1a1a1>apart from bribes
06:45<OwenS>TT1a1a1, good service, tree bribes
06:45<planetmaker>good service to stations in their area of influence and patience
06:45-!-lugo [] has joined #openttd
06:45<TT1a1a1>cant get a foothold in the area
06:45<planetmaker>First build your stations while it is allowed, then the infrastructure.
06:45<OwenS>Then tree bribe them: Demolish all their trees and replace them. They forget you demolished them in the first place :p
06:45<planetmaker>For now build in another city :-)
06:46<TT1a1a1>ah, ill try the tree bribe
06:46<TT1a1a1>could do with a better way to do that
06:46<TT1a1a1>maybe a 'assainate council leader' option
06:47<TT1a1a1>no other cities left, playing the UK scenario and have been spending my time linking up scotlands towns
06:49-!-KenjiE20 [~KenjiE20@] has joined #openttd
06:51<dih>fast forward, start over, ...
06:53<dih> <- heh!
06:54<TT1a1a1>whats the plan now that version one is out? are there plans to expand it out to new features?
06:55<planetmaker>no. It will be left as is and we all now start working on OpenRealism
06:55<TT1a1a1>whats that?
06:56<planetmaker>a moderately funny answer to a moderately sensible question :-)
06:56<dih>a commercial clone of openttd just more realistic
06:56<planetmaker>Well... anyone could even sell it :-)
06:56<dih>there already is a contract with atari
06:56<planetmaker>even now :-)
06:57<dih>had a legal battle with CS, but he lost
06:57*dih coughs
06:57*dih chokes
06:58<planetmaker>TT1a1a1, honestly: sure it will go on. There's no "vision" yet as what constitutes a version 2.0, though
06:58<TT1a1a1>ah cool
06:58<dih>but everybody has a vision of what could be done
06:59<dih>at least i assume they do ^^
06:59<planetmaker>but development already progressed passed 1.0
06:59<planetmaker>with some very nifty features :-)
06:59<planetmaker>dih, I don't think so.
06:59<dih>uh... what have i missed in the past 10 days?
06:59<planetmaker>Many people have a length wishlist of this and that patch or so.
06:59<planetmaker>But vision? Few
06:59<planetmaker>Very few
06:59<dih>at least yexo should have some bright ideas ^^
06:59<TT1a1a1>definitely, im well impressed so far
07:00<planetmaker>collection of ideas != vision :-)
07:00<dih>but a vision requires ideas ^^
07:00<dih>at least that kind of 'vision' ^^
07:01<TT1a1a1>i dont think the ideas are the issue, its how to deliver them inside the game
07:01<TT1a1a1>whether they are turned on or not
07:01<planetmaker>The issue of a new vision rather is "what general direction do we want to go" - not the level of "this feature or that"
07:01-!-rhaeder [] has joined #openttd
07:02<planetmaker>cargodist + 3d + multicore + mmorp is no vision.
07:02<dih>no - it's sillyness ^^
07:02<planetmaker>not really :-P
07:03<planetmaker>I think adding "multicore" in some way to the vision might be a good thing; maybe also a re-worked client-server model
07:03<dih>3d + multicore?
07:04<planetmaker>dih, yes...
07:04<planetmaker>I don't say it's easy, I'm aware of all the threads which result in "not possible"
07:05<dih>the gui just was reworked ^^
07:05<planetmaker>But given the way hardware development goes, the trend clearly is that people don't own the super high end computer anymore, but the number crunching is done on servers.
07:05<Noldo>openttd is a single core app bt desing
07:05<planetmaker>And bandwidth gets cheaper
07:05<planetmaker>I don't claim I have an idea on the implementation side nor any detailed idea about it. But *something* in that direction might seem sensible.
07:05<dih>openttd is very low on bw compared to other games, but again, comparing, openttd has a huge state
07:06<planetmaker>"on bw"?
07:06<planetmaker>nvm. bandwidth
07:06<dih>erm - run a css server at home with it's 800GB traffic a month and see what your isp tells you ^^
07:07<planetmaker>yes. So there might be some trade-off between bandwidth and CPU usage to be considered
07:07<dih>yes, but the css state is small
07:07<dih>compared to openttd
07:07<planetmaker>dih, Those servers surely cannot be run from your dial-up, I know.
07:07<dih>100 mbit, goot latency.....
07:08<Mazur>Morning, all.
07:08<jordi>Rubidium, blathijs: this is looking good.
07:09<Mazur>(Well, yes, it is afternoon, I know, I just played rather late, of course.)
07:09<jordi>Rubidium: oops, I hadn't seen your reply
07:10<jordi>Rubidium: thanks for the input
07:10<blathijs>jordi: Yeah, I saw. I'll stop trying to get Ubuntu running now (Trying to compile openttd using only a ramdisk and 512MB of RAM turns out to be hopeless :-p)
07:12<Mazur>Would it not be great, if you could predefine a number of combinations of items, so you can build them in one go?
07:12<@Rubidium>blathijs: just take the package from OpenTTD's site
07:14<Mazur>Like for instance: I have a developing idea of how to implement a train station, if I could predefine the oombination(s), I would keep forgetting to build all the details like a busstop, a lorry bay and a depot.
07:14<Mazur>would not
07:15-!-roboboy [] has joined #openttd
07:16<Mazur>Or to buy adjacent land for expansion when the time comes.
07:17-!-Hirundo [] has joined #openttd
07:20-!-nico [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
07:22<Mazur>Idea 2: I would be most convenient, if in train orders one could designate trains as either: Stopping Train (Meaning visit each station along the road) or IC (Meaning: Only visit those stations mentioned, pass the rest by if possible).
07:22<@Rubidium>you can already do that
07:23<@Rubidium>go non-stop to vs go to
07:23<Mazur>Non-stop does the second half, not non-stop the first.
07:23<Mazur>Yes, I realised.
07:25<Mazur>Idea 3: Would it not be convenient to be able to have trains run from the end backwards through the list, instead of having to visit each intervening station again for say, a stopping train?
07:25<@Rubidium>that idea's not new either
07:25<Mazur>Ooptional, of course, one might want a circle line.
07:26<@Rubidium>no, but it's suggested literally hundreds of times
07:26<Mazur>Ah, ok.
07:26<Mazur>Well, I was bound to have a non-original idea, as well.
07:28<Mazur>I was a bit disappointed yesterday, when a group of 4 sharing trains took a different route back to the starting point, through a very crowded and overused station. But I'll be using waypoints in the future.

07:30<Mazur>I find Signs to be dreadfully helpful, by the way, I've been using them a lot yesterday when revamping my train network.
07:31<Mazur>Making a sign everwhere where I was redesigning, to help memorise which track was supposed to go where.
07:31<Mazur>Cleared out most of my spaghetti.

09:04<@Rubidium>hello Belugas
09:06<Belugas>sir master Rubidium, i humbly bow in front of you and present my most sincere salutations
09:06<dih>oh my - this is getting ugly ^^
09:07<@Rubidium>dih: what is?
09:10<blathijs>jordi: Awesome, Ubuntu granted the exception :-D
09:10<dih>imagining belugs with his oh so sincere salutiataions ^^
09:11<__ln__>dih: you can't dereference belugas unless he's a pointer
09:15<@Rubidium>blathijs: that'll make many people happy!
09:15<Belugas>i point out me deference to those who i consider worth it :)
09:15<Belugas>you had yours too, dih ;)

09:19<@Rubidium>blathijs: did "we" ever test installing our OpenTTD packages over Debian's?
09:20<jordi>blathijs: ha, fantastic
09:20<jordi>hopefully 1.0.0 is a good enough version
09:20<jordi>because getting 1.0.1 is going to be fscking hard
09:21<@Rubidium>jordi: but then they can download "our" package which should get all the other stuff from Ubuntu's repository
09:22<jordi>"our" package is made by blathijs I assume, right?
09:22<@Rubidium>jordi: nah, by our compile farm
09:22<jordi>ie, it's compatible, no file collisions, etc?
09:22<jordi>"made by" means the debian/ dir is the same as in Debian
09:23<@Rubidium>no, it's slightly different to not make two packages

09:23<@Rubidium>and the changelog's content is different
09:23<jordi>uhm. hopefully it has the necessary replaces
09:23<@Rubidium>the rest should (now again) be the same
09:24<blathijs>Rubidium: Hmm, I was going to test that, but I think I didn't
09:24<@Rubidium>oh, and it doesn't have the depends/recommends yet
09:24<blathijs>jordi: It should have the necessary stuff, it just hasn't been tested yet I think
09:25<blathijs>Rubidium: I'll try to test that later today
09:25<@Rubidium>lovely... 1.0.0 won't replace 1.0.0-1 :)
09:25<@Rubidium>that's "good"
09:25<jordi>Rubidium: what do you mean "replace"?
09:26<jordi>absence of Debian revision implies -0, if you mean that
09:26<@Rubidium>jordi: that it fails to downgrade it (not sure whether that's right or not)
09:26<@Rubidium>building a .deb with a much newer version to properly test it
09:27-!-Grelouk [] has quit [Quit: Quitte]
09:27<blathijs>Rubidium: Downgrade what to where?
09:28<@Rubidium>1.0.0-1 to 1.0.0

09:29<blathijs>Hmm, I see that now as well. It considers removing openttd-data (which it should), but doesn't for some reason I don't understand
09:29<blathijs>Perhaps because it is a downgrade? That's probably what you mean by building a newer version, then.
09:29<blathijs>Rubidium: Why is the version number 1.0.0, not 1.0.0-1 ?
09:32-!-Galdar [~Galdar@] has joined #openttd
09:33<@Rubidium>blathijs: because I didn't add the -1 in changelog I think; after all, it's not an official Debian package
09:33<blathijs>Rubidium: No, but it's not a Debian native package either (which is what the current version number says)
09:33<blathijs>Something like might be better, then?
09:34<@Rubidium>blathijs: but as jordi says, it implies -0
09:34-!-Timmaexx [] has joined #openttd
09:34<@Rubidium>so I guess we'll just go with -0 from now on (if I don't forget)
09:35<blathijs>Not sure if -0 is distinguishable from no debian revision everywhere
09:35<blathijs>How about ? That's similar to what bpo does?
09:36<blathijs>Rubidium: Btw, upgrading from Debian rc3 to 1.0.0 doesn't work either, same error
09:36<@Rubidium>ah, shouldn't have added the Conflicts, that conflicts with Replaces

09:43<blathijs>jordi: Any comments on that?
09:47<blathijs>Rubidium: It seems aptitude handles the Conflicts line just fine, when I put the version in a repository
09:48<@Rubidium>dpkg doesn't
09:48<blathijs>Even when downgrading
09:52-!-JVassie [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]

09:52<blathijs>Rubidium: It does install, but it keeps openttd-data around (since there are some files that aren't replaced, like stuff in /usr/share/doc/openttd-data and some directories in /usr/share/games/openttd/)
09:53<blathijs>Let's ask #debian-devel
09:53<@Rubidium>so the 'current' package is 'better' :(
09:54<@Rubidium>and how to force the package building to perform the patch for openttd-wrapper?

09:58<blathijs>Rubidium: Using dpkg --auto-deconfigure does work
09:59<blathijs>Rubidium: Which is what dpkg suggests when it fails
10:01<@Rubidium>now I only need to figure out how to get the openttd-wrapper patch applied when creating the package
10:01<@Rubidium>from just a source checkout + ln -s os/debian debian
10:03<blathijs>Rubidium: Do you have quilt?
10:04<@Rubidium>blathijs: Yexo
10:04<@Rubidium>blathijs: yes... tab completing words doesn't work :(
10:04<planetmaker>what kind of openttd-wrapper patch is that you talk about?
10:04<blathijs>Rubidium: Try running "QUILT_PATCHES=debian/patches quilt push -a" before building
10:04<blathijs>planetmaker: It's a patch to make the .desktop file call openttd-wrapper instead of openttd
10:05<blathijs>planetmaker: And the wrapper captures stderr and shows it if needed
10:05<planetmaker>ah... so that even non-xterm users are able to capture that? Nice :-)
10:05<blathijs>planetmaker: It's ugly (uses xmessage), but it beats silent failure :-)
10:05-!-Lakie [~Lakie@] has joined #openttd
10:05<planetmaker>yup, very much so.
10:07<blathijs>Rubidium: What do you use for building? Just calling dpkg-buildpackage?
10:08<@Rubidium>debian/rules binary (at the moment at least)
10:09<blathijs>Rubidium: It seems dpkg-buildpackage doesn't do any patch application either, so that won't matter
10:09<@Rubidium>blathijs: <- the current difference (openttd-wrapper and NEWS are trailing whitespace)
10:10<blathijs>Rubidium: Only dpkg-source does so, but then you need to build a source package and then extract it, since dpkg-source doesn't just seem to have a "only apply patches" command
10:10<blathijs>Rubidium: So using quilt is probably best
10:12<blathijs>Rubidium: If you want to minimize the diff, I'd still install everything into debian/tmp and just put a single line "debian/tmp" into openttd.install

10:17-!-JVassie [] has joined #openttd
10:18<blathijs>Rubidium: As for the replaces/conflicts thing, #debian-devel thinks it is intended to work like this (though they're not entirely sure) and don't know how to fix this in the package
10:19<@Rubidium>okay, then we'll leave it at conflicts + replaces
10:19<@Rubidium>and I'll mess with the CF after tonight's run
10:19<blathijs>Rubidium: but I guess our users that are smart enough to run "dpkg -i" in a console are probably smart enough to add the --auto-deconfigure when dpkg suggests so
10:23<@Rubidium>okay, going from 1.0.0-1 to 1.1~svn-0 and back seems to go fine (for -> 1.1~svn-0 the --auto-deconfigure is needed)

12:09-!-JVassie [] has joined #openttd
12:10<Mazur>Any comments? I saee the eight platform is not loading, and have not yet deciphered why.
12:10<planetmaker>Mazur, you should seriously consider to open a thread about your findings in the tt-forums.
12:10<planetmaker>Just not sure wheter screenshots or problems ;-)
12:10<Mazur>Should I? I'd hardly expect to do any groundbreaking work here.
12:11<Mazur>Only my first game, still.
12:11-!-ptr [] has joined #openttd
12:12<Mazur>planetmaker: Well, I can be a problem, I suppose.
12:12<planetmaker>I don't know wether it's ground working ;-) But it might a) be easier to review, if coherently described in a single posting and b) fetch the attention of those people who like to deal with that - but which aren't always online
12:13<Mazur>Is this a polite way to say: Shut up, this is not the right place, you're bothering us?
12:14<planetmaker>not really :-) This is the IRC channel related to openttd, both playing and developing, so it's the right place :-)
12:15<Mazur>Ah, ok.
12:15*Rubidium votes for wrong refit
12:15<planetmaker>But... looking at that station, Mazur - it's horribly inefficient.
12:18<Mazur>I suppose so, but from the "far end"/"middle end"/"near end" option I surmised it might be possible to use one platform for two trains simultaniously, and this is the test case.
12:18-!-a1270 [] has quit [Read error: No route to host]
12:18<Mazur>So initially I just built a double length station, to test it out.
12:19-!-ptr [] has quit [Quit: Zzzzzz]
12:19<planetmaker> <-- if you want something like that build it the fast way, oblique stations.
12:19<Mazur>It became quickly clear I'd jumpewd to the wrong conclusion.
12:19<planetmaker>you can skip the lone entry and exit, if you like, though it cuts on your station's through-put
12:20<Ammler>he, seems like moving DevZone to nginx solved our issues :-)
12:21<planetmaker>(what you see in that image is actually 6 stations - as a single station or saw mill cannot accept the amount of wood which we shipped there :-P )
12:21<planetmaker>Ammler, that's very good news :-)

12:36<Mazur>Interesting study material, planetmaker. I bookmarked them both, for when I understand signals better, as well.
12:37<planetmaker>Mazur, rather bookmark our PublicServer archive ;-)
12:37<planetmaker>It has ~170 games of that style
12:37<Mazur>Have already done so.
12:37<planetmaker>ok :-)
12:38<Mazur>Seen a few the examples there, too.
12:38<planetmaker>some call it insane, some have fun with it ;-)
12:38<Mazur>For now I'm using this station as a test case, also for learning loading speeds.
12:38<planetmaker>If I play alone, I build usually something in between ;-) Efficient but dynamically grown
12:39<planetmaker>loading speed is given by the wagons.
12:39<planetmaker>And only drastically slower, if the station is too short
12:39<Mazur>I mean which platforms load fastest.
12:40<Mazur>I've noticed a bias towards certain positions.
12:41<planetmaker>It doesn't matter
12:41<Mazur>If the production is to the side of the platforms, for instance, the one nearest fills way faster than the farthest.
12:42<+glx>some are good to test PF performance :)
12:42<planetmaker>all station tiles are equal
12:42<planetmaker>probably §1 of the declaration of independent stations or so :-P
12:42<Ammler>[18:38] <planetmaker> some call it insane, some have fun with it <-- insane is fun :-P
12:42<Mazur>You sure? I thought I'd quite often seen the last train to arrive be one of the first to leave. And most certainly the percentage filled goes faster.
12:43<planetmaker>Mazur, the choice of which train gets loaded - that might be a function of the station tile. Dunno
12:43<planetmaker>But the loading speed: I'm 99.5% sure that it doesn't matter.

12:54<planetmaker>Mazur, I'm quite sure it's not nearest, but rather the one which occupies the tile with the lowest ID
12:56<Eddi|zuHause>i would have guessed the train with the lowest ID...
12:57<planetmaker>or that :-)
12:57<planetmaker>I've no clue
12:57<planetmaker>But I'm quite sure it does NOT depend upon the distance to the source of the cargo ;-)
12:58<Eddi|zuHause>what a crazy idea :p
12:58<Mazur>Well, that's what I'm trying to find out, by observation.
12:58<planetmaker>which in the case of a station embedded within a town would be quite difficult to determine
12:59<Mazur>Well, I just don't know, do I? :-) But I will.
13:01<Mazur>Just as I will learn all the pitfalls, problems and benefits of using one type of signal over the other, where which type is best, in other words, how to really use them.
13:01<planetmaker>Mazur, then start reading the source code ;-)
13:01<planetmaker>that will most reliably tell you the priority for loading one train or another.
13:01<Mazur>I'd rather not, I expect there is a lot of it.

15:01<Mazur>How does servicing work? I have a train last services in october 2310, we are now in may 2313, 2.6 years later, service interval is on 150 days, what gives?
15:02<Nite_Owl>does the train have easy access on its route to a depot ?
15:03<Mazur>Yes, at every station along the route twice, usually.
15:03<Mazur>I have not put a service order in its list.
15:04<Mazur>I'm not (yet) sending it manually, I wanted to check the automatics.
15:04<@Rubidium>have you disabled breakdowns?
15:04<Nite_Owl>do you have "breakdowns" turned off ? do you have "no service if breakdowns turned off" on ?
15:05<Mazur>I've not enabled it, more like.
15:05<Mazur>Let me look.

15:08-!-Grelouk [] has joined #openttd
15:08<Mazur>No servicing is breakdowns are 0.
15:08<Alberth>enable breakdowns :p
15:08<Mazur>Nah, i'm still to green for that.
15:08-!-fonsinchen [] has joined #openttd
15:09<Nite_Owl>change it from within the saved game with the Advanced Settings
15:10<Nite_Owl>just changing it in the cfg will only effect new games
15:10<Mazur>If I start a new game, will the default settings or my altered settings be used?
15:10<Nite_Owl>depends on where you made the changes
15:10<Alberth>new games use settings from the main menu, existing games use settings from the stored game
15:10-!-JVassie [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
15:11<Nite_Owl>what he said
15:11-!-JVassie [] has joined #openttd
15:11<Mazur>Through the interface. Guess I'll have to run through the config file, as well.
15:11<Nite_Owl>the main menu will change the cfg
15:11<Nite_Owl>on exit
15:12<Mazur>Ah, ok.
15:12<Nite_Owl>I think it is on exit
15:12<Mazur>Well, I do regularly exit.
15:12<Alberth>yes, it is
15:12<Mazur>Once per day, that is.
15:13<Mazur>I can;t read if my trains keep howling their mournful calls to me.
15:14<Nite_Owl>so make the changes on the main menu, exit out of the game, go back into the game, and start a new game for the changes to take place
15:15<Nite_Owl>otherwise make the changes on the Advanced Settings menu from within a saved game - which will only effect that saved game

15:38<Anon7469>i don' have the good OTTD
15:39<Anon7469>that's the message
15:39<Anon7469>because of grf ??
15:39<PeterT>You need the same version as the server
15:39<Nite_Owl>if you have been having trouble with servicing then that is why the reliability is 0%
15:40<Anon7469>ok got the 0.6.0
15:40<Nite_Owl>without breakdowns turned on reliability becomes a non issue
15:40<Anon7469>it too old
15:40<Anon7469>see 1.0.0
15:40<PeterT>Yes, download 1.0.0
15:40<Ammler>yes, around 2 years

15:41-!-JVassie [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
15:41<Mazur>Ah, thanks, Nit_Owl, so I should just add servicing to that groups orders. Or lower their service interval.
15:42<Anon7469>ty for the tip
15:42-!-JVassie [] has joined #openttd
15:42<PeterT>Anon7469: sort by compatibility
15:42<PeterT>it will only show servers that have the same version as you
15:43<Anon7469>i can't sort by it
15:43<Anon7469>is it the red light ?
15:43<PeterT>Hit the little button about the flags
15:44<Anon7469>i did it
15:44<Anon7469>all red
15:44<PeterT>and they are all red?
15:44<PeterT>You downloaded 1.0.0 and installed it, right?
15:45<Anon7469>not yet
15:45<PeterT>Do that
15:45<Nite_Owl>Mazur: Actually you could raise the service interval since it really does not matter
15:45<PeterT>because you can't join 0.6.0 servers if there are none
15:46<Anon7469>ty so much
15:46<PeterT>You're welcome.
15:47<Nite_Owl>the main reason to keep the "turn off servicing if breakdowns are set to none" setting on is so that you can still use the auto replacement feature
15:47<Anon7469>this is so beautiful
15:50<Nite_Owl>I play with breakdowns set to none - servicing on when breakdowns are set to none - vehicle servicing set to 365 days (once a year) - and I use go to depot orders when maintenance is needed

18:46<TrueBrain>(and I am WAY too lazy to make a patch and commit it on my workstation :p)
18:52<@orudge>TrueBrain: we were on slashdot, eh? I hadn't noticed
18:52<@orudge>higher bandwidth yesterday, indeed
18:52<@orudge>albeit not significantly
18:53<TrueBrain>good :)
18:53<TrueBrain>was just checking ;)
18:53<@orudge>how about on
18:53<@Rubidium>what is tt-forums' monthly (or daily) bandwidth use?
18:54<@Rubidium>orudge: little under 215 GiB yesterday (138 for the mirrors, 77 for the main server)
18:54<@orudge>generally around 230GB of HTTP bandwidth per month for tt-forums
18:54<@orudge>Rubidium: and what's normal these days?
18:54<@orudge>when not on slashdot :)
18:55<@Rubidium>orudge: 600-700 GiB a month for the main server

18:57<@Rubidium>although some 10 GiB a day (little less than half of total) of that was BaNaNaS and with 1.0.0 BaNaNaS goes mostly over the mirrors. Currently at about 85% of BaNaNaS downloads goes over the mirrors.
18:57<@Rubidium>so that would mean 400 GiB for this month could be seen as the "base-line"
18:58<@Rubidium>for the main server that is
18:58<TrueBrain>yesterday we have twice as much hits on the httpd, and in fact everything just doubled for a good portion of the day
18:58<@Rubidium>first six days did 275 GiB and today seems to be quite busy too
18:59<TrueBrain>so we finally produce more bandwidth than tt-forums ;)
18:59<TrueBrain>Party! :p
18:59<@Rubidium>of which ~200 GiB was pure HTTP traffic for the main server
18:59<Eddi|zuHause>orudge: while you are here, i have an annoying problem in the forum
19:00-!-Chillosophy [] has quit []
19:00<Eddi|zuHause>orudge: i turned off images in the forum preferences, but now when i click on an attachment, it doesn't have a mime type set
19:00<Eddi|zuHause>so it doesn't open in the image viewer
19:00<@Rubidium>TrueBrain: finally? We have more than 230 GiB a month for quite a while already; was 800 GiB over April 2009
