09:36<borgfish>hi
09:36<borgfish>i would need help configuring my dedicated server.
09:36<borgfish>is there a setting for a max. number of oil rigs?
09:37-!-JostVice [~jostvice@85.136.129.22.dyn.user.ono.com] has joined #openttd
09:37<Rubidium>not directly
09:38<Rubidium>though if you haven't enabled "industries close together" and "multiple industries of same type in a town", then it's limited to the number of coastal towns
09:38<planetmaker>also: why is it important to limit the number of oil rigs?
09:39<planetmaker>What's the real purpose you try to follow?
09:39<borgfish>well the game shall run for several hundret years and they keep spawning, its a mess regarding density
09:39<planetmaker>well, they also go again, if they're not serviced
09:39<Rubidium>so you've enabled those settings I've mentioned earlier
09:40<planetmaker>^ yep
09:40<planetmaker>borgfish, more of a problem are power plans, banks and water towers

09:40<planetmaker>they never close down, once spawned.
09:40-!-APTX [~APTX@chello089076052083.chello.pl] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
09:40<planetmaker>Thus setting "one industry per kind and town" might then really make sense
09:40<borgfish>yes power plants are a problem, but not that ugly like the riggs
09:41<planetmaker>:-) Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess :-)
09:42<borgfish>:o)
09:43<borgfish>never_expire_vehicles means they wont warn if old ?
09:44<Ammler>warn if old is a client setting...
09:44<borgfish>i have seen it in my client while playing on the server, but i could not switch it ?
09:45<Ammler>news settings
09:45<Ammler>oh planetmaker/andy, if you cleanup settings, news settings might be another window, which needs merging ;-)
09:45<planetmaker>:-) yes, I guess
09:45<planetmaker>But that's quite low on that list tbh
09:46<borgfish>how is the news setting named ? i cant identify it on my german openttd
09:46<Eddi|zuHause><borgfish> never_expire_vehicles means they wont warn if old ? <-- no, it means you can buy vehicles forever
09:46<planetmaker>Nachrichten
09:46<planetmaker>borgfish, it's available ingame by the newspaper symbol in the task bar
09:46<borgfish>rat / informationen zu fahrzeugen der firma
09:47<planetmaker>feel free to propose translation improvements ;-)
09:47<borgfish>how is it named in english ? the warn if old option ?
09:47<planetmaker>I think exactly that "warn, if vehicle gets old"
09:48<Mazur>It's part of all vehicle related news items.
09:48<Rubidium>I hope s/if/when/ :)
09:48<planetmaker>hehe :-) True that
09:48<borgfish>well i have like 15 options in my news menue, and if switched on, they come as newspaper
09:49<planetmaker>set them to ticker ;-)
09:49<borgfish>but the warn if old thing comes as little box with the running train inside e.g.
09:49<borgfish>so i guess its not a news setting ?
09:49<Mazur>"advice"
09:49<Mazur>In english.
09:50<dihedral>Looks like i can make the weekend in june :-)
09:51<dihedral>planetmaker, what do you prefer? people staying at your house or people getting a room
09:51<dihedral>if you want people to get a room, do you suggest anything?
09:51<borgfish>when i goto the "wheel" button 3rd top left, - advanced options, under vehicles: i can switch on and of the aging
09:51<borgfish>while playing on my server, i cant
09:51<borgfish>so i thought its a server setting

10:07<planetmaker>dihedral, I don't mind people staying at my house. But I'm actually sure that there are too many people in order to have that work for everyone
10:08<planetmaker>Hotels in the direct vicinity of my place is a bit difficult. A quite good and not cheap hotel is the "Hotel am Wollmarkt".
10:08-!-orudge_ [~orudge@75-149-149-225-Minnesota.hfc.comcastbusiness.net] has joined #openttd
10:08<planetmaker>It's a former YCMA hotel which offers nights for about 30€ IIRC
10:09<planetmaker>the youth hostel unfortunately is diametrally at the opposite end of town
10:09-!-heffer [~felix@mue-88-130-91-163.dsl.tropolys.de] has quit [Quit: heffer]
10:10<planetmaker>hm... prices are actually a bit higher than I thought:
10:10<planetmaker>http://www.hotelamwollmarkt.de/pages/hotel.htm
10:10<planetmaker>So 50€ or 80€ for double
10:11<planetmaker>I'm actually thinking right now whether I should try to reserve sufficient room in a nice pub - and make a public announcement.
10:12<planetmaker>That's then not BBQ - but it will make rather sure that it's easy to serve all the people .-)
10:13<planetmaker>hm... I just got an idea :-)

10:15<planetmaker>what does the average participant of such convention expect it to be like?

10:16<borgfish>you need strippers ! (lol)

10:21<fjb>OpenTTD get-together in Braunschweig?
10:25<planetmaker>jo
10:27<SirSquidness>Why can't you guys live in Australia? :(
10:28<Rubidium>because the stupidity of the government of Australia?
10:28<Eddi|zuHause>because everything is upside down there
10:28<planetmaker>I have the feeling that it's getting bigger than might be comfortable at my home due to crowdedness.
10:28<planetmaker>So... rather a pub or a (youth) convention centre?
10:31<orudge_>so, you're not all coming to the TT meet then this year?
10:31<orudge_>which I'm sure several of you said you would do last year if you'd had more notice :p

10:38<Eddi|zuHause>orudge_: if it's in the UK, that is fairly unlikely
10:38<orudge_>compared to, say, where? are you unwilling to travel outside of your own country, or just unwilling to travel to the UK? :p
10:39<Rubidium>orudge_: getting to the plane would take longer (and cost most) than getting to Braunschweig
10:39<Eddi|zuHause>orudge_: i'm unable to pay for a far journey
10:39<SirSquidness>Eddi|zuHause: nuh uh, it's you guys that are upside down! :<

10:40<orudge_>true that!

10:40<tycoondemon>16:21:33,20102005 <fjb> OpenTTD get-together in Braunschweig?
10:40<orudge_>even the esteemed patchman
10:40<tycoondemon>cool
10:40<SirSquidness>Eddi|zuHause: and don't you forget it! :D
10:40<tycoondemon>thats like close by
10:41<orudge_>heh
10:41<orudge_>http://cultivatedpages.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/upside-down-world-map2.gif
10:41<planetmaker>hm... I really should make a forum thread I guess. And get a place to hold it other than my home which is already filled with people who already like to come ;-)
10:41<orudge_>this one even puts Australia smack bang in the middle
10:42<Rubidium>oh, it only costs me like 150 euros to get to/from Edinburgh and sleep two nights in a cardboard box
10:42<orudge_>quite reasonable, eh :D
10:43<SirSquidness>Cardboard boxes are so expensive these days.
10:43<orudge_>the exchange rate is reasonably favourable to you Euro-types at the moment, I guess
10:44<Eddi|zuHause>i have an idea!
10:44<planetmaker>hm... or we have BBQ at our institute...
10:44<Eddi|zuHause>hold the meet on kamtschatka, that's equally far from everybody!
10:44<planetmaker>:-D
10:47<Belugas>mmh... 14 hours of driving between Montreal and Chicago...

10:48<planetmaker>Rubidium, I guess it limits it to midnight for people younger than 18
10:48<Eddi|zuHause>Rubidium: to my knowledge, there is no age limit for pubs
10:49<Belugas>will cost roughly 115$ by road, plus hotel, lunch and so on
10:49<planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause, but why did one have to leave a discotheque at midnight when not 18?
10:49<Markk>Belugas: Don't you live in Denmark?
10:49<Eddi|zuHause>Markk: no, that was the other B person
10:50<Belugas>Markk, nope, not at all...
10:50<Markk>Okay. :P
10:50<Eddi|zuHause>whose name shall not be mentioned!
10:50<planetmaker>:-D
10:50<__ln__>Markk: he lives in a country which has border disputes with Denmark.
10:50<planetmaker>Rubidium, but sure, that's a good point. Though if it's a private convention I'm not entirely sure whether those rules do apply
10:51<Markk>__ln__: Canada?
10:51<planetmaker>^
10:51<Markk>(Greenland)
10:51<__ln__>do we know for a fact that someone is under 18?
10:51<Rubidium>planetmaker: well, I seem to remember that in the US getting access for < 21 year old people would be kinda troublesome
10:52<Rubidium>probably because of their sue-happy culture
10:52<Belugas>orudge: more than 500$ is a bit hard to swallow... i'd rather buy a new lens instead ;)
10:52<Markk>Awesome, it's about 80 degrees outside, and I'm listening to Earth, Wind and Fire - September. :D
10:52<Belugas>Markk, yup, Canada is my place
10:52<Markk>Awesome
10:52<Belugas>country
10:53<planetmaker>Rubidium, 18 is definitely the only limit in that respect, 16 might be another, 14 yet another, but...
10:53<orudge_><Belugas> orudge: more than 500$ is a bit hard to swallow... i'd rather buy a new lens instead ;) <-- heh
10:54*orudge_ is heading to Vancouver next weekend
10:54<orudge_>and I'm hoping my lens is back from the camera repair shop by then :/
10:54<orudge_>it unfortunately got dropped :(
10:54<Belugas>ho? sand/dust?
10:54<Belugas>ooops...
10:54<orudge_>which damaged some of the electric contacts on it
10:54<Belugas>like, badly damaged?
10:54<orudge_>not too badly, no
10:55<Belugas>good for you :)
10:55<Belugas>what lens was that?
10:55<Belugas>was-is
10:55<orudge_>just the stock 18-55mm lens that comes with the Nikon D40
10:55<__ln__>is a cake expected to survive from dutchland to germanland on a summer day?
10:56<orudge_>I've intended to get a 55-200mm lens too, but alas money has been prioritised in other areas recently :p
10:56<planetmaker>__ln__, they can reasonably be expected to survive.
10:56<Belugas>18-55 is very good to walk around.
10:56<planetmaker>Tested successfully (though the other way around)
10:56<SirSquidness>__ln__: as long as it's not an icecream cake \o/
10:56<Belugas>55-200 is a bit too small, if you ask me
10:56<Belugas>you might check 70-300 at sigma
10:57<Belugas>note that... i choose the canon's 70-300mm...
10:58<orudge_>mmh

11:42<SmatZ>that GDB is driving me crazy
11:42<SmatZ>it completely ignores breakpoints I set
11:42<Rubidium>lto?
11:42<SmatZ>and refuses to start the program in "step" mode
11:42<planetmaker>dihedral, yeah, I could certainly do that there, too. They explicitly say they give group discounts
11:42<SmatZ>nope, just normal code that worked 5 minutes ago
11:43<fjb>planetmaker: When will the get-together happen?
11:43<+glx>optimisations ?
11:43<planetmaker>fjb, 19/20 June
11:43<SmatZ>but now GDB reached its puberty and doesn't obey at all

11:45<planetmaker>__ln__, it rather sounds healthy ;-)
11:46<fjb>__ln__: Bad, from baden = bathing.
11:47<SmatZ>also, stupid DDD starts it some stacked mode, so all windows are so tiny, so I have to resize them so I can use that tool
11:47<SmatZ>blargh

11:49<SmatZ>it's the same when KDE asks me if I really do want to turn off computer, and asks it TWICE
11:49<+glx>Eddi|zuHause: something like "-les-bains" here (they are allowed to have casinos)
11:49<SmatZ>I DO!
11:50<dihedral>are you sure?
11:50<+glx>are you really sure?
11:50<Eddi|zuHause>glx: yes, similar... actually "Bad" is a direct translation of "bain"
11:50<planetmaker>hm... maybe not?

12:06<Rubidium>also, if it starts just after lunch (assume people had lunch when arriving) (13:00 ish?) that would give a reasonable departure time for most as well
12:07<caribou|>hello
12:07<planetmaker>well, yes, it would.
12:07<caribou|>is there any way to autorenew my vehicles easily ?
12:07<planetmaker>caribou|, yes, by using the autorenew feature
12:08<caribou|>autorenew = true ?
12:08<planetmaker>yes
12:08<caribou|>mhhh does people use to do that ?
12:08<Rubidium>Yexo: 70-80 km longer but only 30 minutes, which would mean a higher average speed or something
12:08<caribou|>because that's really boring...
12:08<caribou|>(not to use it i mean...)
12:08<planetmaker>Rubidium, but I guess many of the longer-distant people would like to stay the night :-)
12:08<Yexo>ah, I didn't look at the distance
12:09<Rubidium>maybe the E30 has a 100 km/h speed limit for some reason and the alternatives don't have such a restriction
12:09<planetmaker>Rubidium, that highway has less speed limits
12:09<planetmaker>yeah, I think
12:09<planetmaker>going via Osnabrück is a quick and nice route
12:10<planetmaker>the only nasty thing is the connection to the A2
12:10<planetmaker>where the highway from Osnabrück ends in front of a small town and only continues afterwards
12:10<planetmaker>And that town is literally plastered with speeding cameras
12:11<planetmaker>like every kilometer one or so ;-)
12:11<Rubidium>ah, that explains it all :)
12:11<Rubidium>it's a piece of "no highway"
12:11<planetmaker>yes
12:12<Rubidium>that for the longest european road
12:12<planetmaker>:-D
12:12<Rubidium>although I have to confess that in the NL it's for a bit not a highway either

12:18<SmatZ>ok, seems naming custom section "init" wasn't the best idea... it fooled GDB, and the code was executed as first :-p
12:18<SmatZ>so main() wasn't executed
12:18<SmatZ>and breakpoints were not reached...
12:19<Yexo>what has gdb got to do with the order of execution? isn't that a problem of ld (or whatever linker you use)?
12:20<SmatZ>Yexo: right, gdb is probably not the problem
12:20<SmatZ>it's me :-p
12:21<SmatZ>but it's easier to blame gdb than to admit I am fool :-p
12:21<Yexo>hehe :)
12:22<SmatZ>still, it would be great if GDB allowed me to start program in "stepping" mode from the first insutrction...
12:22<SmatZ>I am not experienced with GDB at all :(
12:23<Yexo>first instruction is usually a lot of library code
12:24<SmatZ>really? I thought _start is executed
12:24<SmatZ>but thanks for info :)
12:25<Yexo>oh, that's quite possible, but 'normally' you don't write _start yourself

12:55<Eddi|zuHause>go ahead!
12:55<theholyduck>Eddi|zuHause, well i can only imagine it
12:55<dihedral>theholyduck, what would you run in different threads??
12:55<theholyduck>dihedral, hmm, a big question.
12:55<dihedral>(in your imagination)
12:55<dihedral>or do you refer to 'threaded' as 'faster'?
12:55<theholyduck>dihedral, well most of the cpu is taken by pathfinder right?
12:55<Eddi|zuHause>theholyduck: there are way too many data dependencies to run in threads reliably
12:56<__ln__>a separate thread for each vehicle
12:56<theholyduck>:P
12:56<theholyduck>alternativly
12:56<theholyduck>you could i guess theoretically dedicate pathfinding for a given area of the map
12:56<Eddi|zuHause>theholyduck: the main problem is, it must be deterministic
12:56<theholyduck>or network
12:56<theholyduck>to a thread
12:56<theholyduck>so low level path findind is done on seperate threads for that local area
12:56<dihedral>it's cute
12:57<theholyduck>that way you'd have less issues with the threads on pathfinding causing something major
12:57<dihedral>...
12:57<Eddi|zuHause>theholyduck: pathfinding is not done on "an area of map"
12:57<theholyduck>Eddi|zuHause, well yeah, not normally :P
12:58<Eddi|zuHause>not ever
12:58<theholyduck>well i'm talking a new approach to pathfinding
12:58<dihedral>theholyduck, you are amusing a good portion of this channel
12:58<dihedral>:-P
12:58<theholyduck>dihedral, possibly :P
12:58<dihedral>in fact - if i may put it that way: you ware making a fool of yourself :-P
12:58<theholyduck>dihedral, probably
12:58<yorick>someone made an area-based yapf
12:59<Eddi|zuHause>theholyduck: it takes more calculation power to determine whether a pathfinding operation can be confinded to "an area of map" than it takes to do the pathfinding
12:59<yorick>on that automatic rail builder patch
12:59<theholyduck>Eddi|zuHause, well yeah, it would waste a fair bit of cpu
12:59<theholyduck>Eddi|zuHause, the point of the exercise is that it can now utilize as many cores as you have more effectivly
12:59<theholyduck>in theory atleast
12:59<theholyduck>its just something i dreamt up once
13:00<theholyduck>in the real world its probably not viable
13:00<planetmaker>theholyduck, it may work in single player
13:00<Eddi|zuHause>your theory is significantly in need of refining
13:00<dihedral>you have an interesting imagination
13:00<yorick>but how do you fix that synchronization?
13:00<planetmaker>but as soon as you enter multi-player things get much more complex
13:00<theholyduck>an alternative yet again that i have no idea if is implemented
13:01<dihedral>no, you have no idea. (full stop) :-P
13:01<theholyduck>make the diffrent sort of pf's run in diffrent threads
13:01<Eddi|zuHause>theholyduck: player A who compiled with threads disabled must get the exact same results as player B who has threads but only one core, and player C who enabled multicore-distribution
13:01<theholyduck>atleast boats and planes dont interact with anything else
13:02<Eddi|zuHause>planes don't have a pathfinder at all
13:02<theholyduck>ok then, but boats du
13:02<theholyduck>*do
13:02<theholyduck>i noticed boats lagging up games when you got enough of them alongside trains
13:02<Eddi|zuHause>the boat pathfinder has different problems than multithreading
13:02<dihedral>ship pathfinding is expensive, but that is due to the fact that every tile can be considered a 'turning point'
13:02<theholyduck>well yes, but if it ran in a seperate thread from trains
13:03<theholyduck>as long as you had 2 cores, there would be less slowdowns from it right?
13:03<dihedral>it would still consider every tile a turning point and still be expensive
13:03<theholyduck>dihedral, yes, i'm not talking about making boat pf less expensive
13:03<dihedral>and perhaps for you, who has multiple cores, that's makes it less noticable
13:03<theholyduck>just less NOTICABLE
13:03<dihedral>for YOU
13:03<dihedral>what's with all the other players?
13:03<Eddi|zuHause>theholyduck: at least as much time as for pathfinding is spent in the collision detection
13:03<yorick>which is not done for ships, is it
13:04<theholyduck>Eddi|zuHause, boats dont colide though.
13:04<theholyduck>with anything
13:04<theholyduck>which is why its the perfect candiate to move somewhere else
13:04<theholyduck>boats dont colide and they dont interact with any other form of veichles at all
13:04<theholyduck>unlike cars
13:04<yorick>theholyduck: they do still interact with the players money
13:05<theholyduck>yorick, sure, but the fact that it might charge or add a bit too late or early isnt likely to cause any issues now is it?
13:05<dihedral>could
13:05<dihedral>as Eddi|zuHause said, all clients and also the server must have exactly the same values in the same frame
13:06<yorick>theholyduck: it is
13:06<yorick>theholyduck: what if you have a HUGE ship, which would pay you enough money to build stuff and such
13:06<yorick>what then

13:07<dihedral>YOU get payed and build, and the server does not yet see that income
13:07<dihedral>but an expense
13:07<Yexo>theholyduck: imagine a train is in need of renewing and you just don't have enough
13:07<dihedral>the server will refuse the build action
13:07<Yexo>on clients A a ship unloads, you get money and have enough for the train rewew
13:07<Yexo>on client B first the renew check is done, then the ship unloads
13:07<Yexo>-> desync
13:07<dihedral>Client A and Server should be enough :-P
13:07<yorick>and also thing about the station ratings
13:07<yorick>think*
13:08<Yexo>client B is the server :p
13:08<dihedral>:-P
13:08<Yexo>station ratings are no problem, at least if all pathfinding is still done at the same time

13:36<SpComb>you need to be more specific :)
13:37<SpComb>but generally, one of the silly things with threading is that while it might make your stuff go faster on a multi-cpu/core host, it'll generally make your single-core performance much, much worse
13:39<SpComb>you'd have to be very, very smart about it to keep the break-even point low enough for it to be worth it
13:40<+glx>anyway requiring a map locking is a no-go
13:40<+glx>and as everything in openttd access the map :)
13:42*Rubidium proposes theholyduck first figures out what takes most CPU and then starts with thinking about how to optimise that
13:46*Rubidium currently looks at a profile where the actual train pathfinding takes a whopping 3.8% of the CPU
13:46<planetmaker>:-)
13:46<planetmaker>frigging tile loops, those :-P
13:47<Rubidium>planetmaker: yep, ~24%

13:52<planetmaker>theholyduck, large maps
13:53<planetmaker>theholyduck, it's no problem to speed it up, if you want to drop multiplayer
13:53<theholyduck>heh :P
13:53<Rubidium>planetmaker: and like non-determinism and some "rounding" errors
13:53<planetmaker>Rubidium, in SP a few race conditions don't matter that much
13:54<planetmaker>It can't desync
13:54<theholyduck>so what we need is more magic?
13:54<Rubidium>planetmaker: I mean, two trains loading at the same time taking the same cargo (updating the same variable), or the same when unloading
13:55<Yexo><planetmaker> Rubidium, in SP a few race conditions don't matter that much <- when trying to find a bug it's very useful there are no race conditions, even for sp

15:17<caribou|>i'm not using blocking signal because some train are waiting ON the crossroad :/
15:17<Eddi|zuHause>caribou|: you should use path signals, then trains will never wait _on_ the crossing

15:18<caribou|>ok i've never used them 'im gonna dig that
15:18<caribou|>thanks
15:19<Keyboard_Warrior>Eddi|zuHause, well, he COULD have some sort of fancy priority or a timer or any other sort of fancy presignal stuff
15:19<Keyboard_Warrior>just outside of view
15:19<Keyboard_Warrior>that would explain that construct instead of pbs
15:20<Keyboard_Warrior>caribou|, also, remember to make the presignals 1 way presignals, otherwise, weird stuff can happen

15:33<Eddi|zuHause>caribou|: they work differently
15:33<Eddi|zuHause>caribou|: they show only a signal on the side where the train should be waiting, but allow trains going the other direction without stopping
15:34<Keyboard_Warrior>http://wiki.openttd.org/PBS caribou|
15:34<Keyboard_Warrior>with a pathfinder penalty though

15:56<andythenorth>do those cargos actually affect town growth?
15:56<frosch123>andythenorth: no cargos affect town growth, except water and food in arctic and tropical
15:57<frosch123>neither delivering nor transporting
15:57<andythenorth>that's what I hoped you'd say. I couldn't be bothered to open that code again
15:57<andythenorth>why don't wiki's use real html? 9.9
15:57<frosch123>didn't i already wrote that in some of your threads some days ago?
15:57<andythenorth>it came up *again*
15:58<frosch123>:p
15:58<andythenorth>wiki formatting is way harder to understand than real html, for me anyway :P
15:58<frosch123>however, reguary serviced stations affect towngrowth
15:58<frosch123>but it does not matter whether you transport anything
16:01-!-elmz [~elmz@222.80-202-29.nextgentel.com] has joined #openttd
16:04<andythenorth>so all the wiki stuff about passenger transportation == growth is also wrong :P
16:05<frosch123>well, you maximise growth by loading and unloading one item of cargo at 5 stations within town influence at least once in two month
16:06<frosch123>or so
16:07<frosch123>@calc 20*185/72
16:07<@DorpsGek>frosch123: 51.3888888889
16:09<andythenorth>frosch123: do the cargos have to be accepted, or just loaded/unloaded?

16:20<Stese>oops,
16:20<andythenorth>if a player uses "Fund New Buildings" that may co-incidentally increase town population (some random chance depending on type of buildings constructed)?
16:20<planetmaker>http://bugs.openttd.org/task/3826/getfile/6105/newgame_onpaint_cleanup.diff <-- small diff which cleans OnPaint of the new game window
16:20<planetmaker>hello Stese
16:21<frosch123>andythenorth: what?
16:21<andythenorth>If I use "Fund New Buildings" at local authority window, what is effect on town growth?
16:21<andythenorth>sorry, on town population
16:22<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: town growth is increased drastically for a short time
16:22<frosch123>it growth 2x - 3x as fast
16:23<andythenorth>so the wiki should mention that...
16:23<frosch123>iirc it even ignores lack of food/water
16:23<Eddi|zuHause>and food/water requirement is ignored
16:23<andythenorth>is there any randomness? Or is it a guaranteed growth?
16:23<frosch123>there is the usual randomness
16:24<Stese>so it's non random, randomness?
16:24<andythenorth>" This may result in rapid population growth for a short time"
16:24<frosch123>oh wait, houses are choosen based on town zones, which is changed while being funded
16:24<frosch123>(you see that by planting lights and such)
16:24*andythenorth knew this wiki page wouldn't be a small job :P
16:24<andythenorth>can't we just remove a lot of features to make documentation easier :P
16:25<frosch123>and houses in inner town zones are usually bigger, or fountains :p
16:25<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: "large buildings may appear even in the outskirts of the town"
16:25<Yexo>planetmaker: I'd move also the SetWidgetLoweredState(GLAND_TEMPERATE... lines to UpdateWidgetStatus
16:25<planetmaker>hm... yes, it's done twice, right?
16:25<planetmaker>let me update it
16:25<andythenorth>does building roads encourage town growth (for example by increasing the chance that a random attempt to place a new building will succeed)?
16:25<Yexo>if you move the new game window out of the way, then chose another climate in the main gui the newgame window doesn't update
16:26<Yexo>that is without your patch, but iwth your patch it's easy to fix
16:26<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: yes, slightly
16:26<andythenorth>ok
16:26<planetmaker>:-D Ok :-)
16:26<Stese>I do that in games, to stop the blighters running roads over my rails
16:27-!-Stese [~Stese@78-105-122-220.zone3.bethere.co.uk] has left #openttd []
16:28<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: in each growth step, the town has four choices: a) build a house next to an existing road, b) build a new road and a house immediately next to it, c) only build a new road, d) do nothing [e.g. when no suitible place is found]
16:28<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: so if the roads are already there, chance is shifted towards (a)
16:29<Eddi|zuHause>chance for (d) is increased when the town is blocked by water or large stations
16:29<Eddi|zuHause>and reduced by use of tunnels/bridges
16:30<andythenorth>Arctic...amount of food...wiki says it has an effect. I think it doesn't as long as it's >=1t per month (reading the code)
16:30<frosch123>yup, one unit in the month before the food is needed is enough
16:30<Yexo>correct, just 1 ton per month required
16:31<planetmaker>Yexo: but I'd need to detect that the climate was changed in the main menu somehow.

16:33<Yexo>yes
16:33<planetmaker>good :-)
16:33<Yexo>that's not the exact name though, dunno what is should be called exactly
16:33<planetmaker>I'll look
16:34<Yexo>virtual void OnInvalidateData(int data)
16:34<planetmaker>InvalidateData() I think
16:34<planetmaker>hm, yes
16:36<Yexo>planetmaker: see also SetNewLandscapeType (but that should use InvalidateWindowClassesData instead of SetWindowClassesDirty)
16:37<Yexo>hmm, that function is copied in both intro_gui.cpp and genworld_gui.cpp
16:37<Yexo>should be merged to a single function and update all the window classes listed in both functions
16:38<Yexo>and then it should probably be used as callback in table/settings.h too
16:38<caribou|>what's wrong with him >> http://img185.imageshack.us/img185/5631/gnnn2.png

16:39<andythenorth>does toyland code use funny syntax colouring :P
16:39<andythenorth>?
16:40<planetmaker>Yexo: I'll look at that, too
16:40<planetmaker>should it become a separate patch? Looks rather like one issue, but I'm not sure
16:40<Yexo>just throw it all in your ptach
16:40<planetmaker>k
16:41<caribou|>Yexo, ok i'm gonna do that
16:41<Yexo>or if you want to split it in two, 1) update landscape buttons in all windows correctly when needed and 2) OnPaint cleanup for newgame gui
16:42<Yexo>that would be better if 1) should be backported, it's not really important though
16:42<planetmaker>:-)
16:42<planetmaker>I'll first see to getting it fixed. Then cutting it into two should be fairly simple

17:12<Yexo>dunno if that's used anywhere, probably not

19:03<Rubidium>heh, you forgot that allocating objects on the heap means wasting at least 4 bytes for allocation metadata, not even speaking about the minimum allocation size of somewhere between 16 and 32 bytes depending on the platform
19:03<Rubidium>and that an array of pointers is already almost as big as the current map array
19:03<Rubidium>and *if* he wants a separate heightmap array, it is on 64 bits as big as the current map array
19:04<Yexo>why is that? can't you have a byte-sized array on 64 bit platforms?
19:04<Rubidium>Yexo: he can

19:05<Rubidium>but a pointer sized array + byte sized array == an 8 byte sized array + byte sized array (assuming 64 bits)
19:05<Yexo>ah, that part :)
19:05<Rubidium>also you seem to have missed my little profile digging of "yesterday"
19:06<Yexo>I read some of that
19:06<Yexo>pathfinding not being very espensive was part of it, the tileloop being very expensive

19:09<Eddi|zuHause>pathfinding is not very expensive due to a template guru coming along a couple years ago ;)
19:10<Eddi|zuHause>the (pseudo-)object oriented approach was kinda... not fast :p
19:11<Eddi|zuHause>i remember discussions like "this will be even faster than the original pathfinder" :p
19:13<Eddi|zuHause>soo... apparently we have a spammer amongst us...

20:40<Eddi|zuHause>that's awfully regular
20:40<@Rubidium>is it 12 minutes, or 33.5-ish MiB?
