05:16<@Terkhen>that is a stupid classification

05:20<andythenorth>too many theatres
05:22*andythenorth ponders trying to fix towns
05:25-!-fonsinchen [] has joined #openttd
05:25-!-dfox [] has joined #openttd
05:26<@Terkhen>town growth?
05:33<@Terkhen>I remember an issue like that, the cause was a houses NewGRF
05:33<@Terkhen>or does it happen without NewGRFs too?
05:33<andythenorth>I don't use any house grfs
05:33<andythenorth>I might have to write my own to fix towns
05:34<andythenorth>default towns are just too weird for me
05:34<@Terkhen>opengfx+ houses? :P
05:38<andythenorth>I'd need to reimplement default towns in newgrf basically
05:38<andythenorth>I'd use base set graphics
05:38<andythenorth>and the same rules for construction
05:38<andythenorth>except to fix the bits that are broken
05:40<andythenorth>I vastly prefer original town graphics to any others
05:40<@Terkhen>that's more or less what we had to do for opengfx+ industries
05:40<andythenorth>it's an interesting approach
05:41<andythenorth>it begs the question...why not just delete the original code for these things, and force them to be provided by newgrf
05:41<andythenorth>the original code is lengthy and full of special cases
05:41<andythenorth>lengthy is not bad
05:42<@Terkhen>I suppose that too many newgrfs rely on the default houses/industries/etc in one way or another
05:42<andythenorth>probably :(
05:42<andythenorth>I do

07:05<@peter1138>YACD is rather nice
07:07-!-Intexon [] has joined #openttd
07:07<@planetmaker>seems there's a real yacd-mania
07:07<@planetmaker>(and yes, it's fun :-) )
07:09<@peter1138>i never did play with cargodist, mind, but i didn't like the idea ;p
07:12*andythenorth will not be doing much newgrf for a few weeks
07:13<andythenorth>except adding things to support YACD :P
07:13*andythenorth is adding ships of various sizes, but not new graphics for them :P
07:13*andythenorth has the luxury of ordering up new vehicles whenever they're needed :P
07:14<@peter1138>fish seems... unfinished ;P
07:14<andythenorth>it is
07:14<andythenorth>turns out there's a lot of types of boats in the world
07:14<andythenorth>and they're the hardest game object to draw
07:17*andythenorth thinks FISH might be done by version 3
07:18<@planetmaker>I really enjoy the weired names :-)
07:19<@planetmaker>well, not so weired, but still
07:19<@planetmaker>In my yacd game I couldn't live without those ships. All that oil...
07:20-!-fonsinchen [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:21<andythenorth>have you figured out the naming schema? :)
07:22<@planetmaker>I didn't try to. But sure enough the different types have different origins
07:22<@planetmaker>so much is easily obvious
07:22<@planetmaker>and that's important ;-)

08:00<anujmore>Hello guys. I cannot figure out what to do with produced goods :/ The things that come out. From a sawmill for example
08:00<andythenorth>take them to a town
08:01<anujmore>Any town? Or does consumption level matter?
08:01<andythenorth>any that accepts goods
08:01<anujmore>Ok andythenorth :)
08:01<@Terkhen>check if the station would accept goods first, only towns with certain buildings (more common in big towns) accept goods
08:01<andythenorth>use the 'build station' to test it
08:02<andythenorth>hover over a town and see if goods are accepted
08:02<andythenorth>or use the ? tool to find out which buildings accept goods
08:02<anujmore>andythenorth: I know that :P
08:02<andythenorth>ok great ;)
08:03<anujmore>Also my Narborough woods has lots of woods available, but Narborough valley (which is at same distance from the forest) doesn't have as much (Woods is a truck station and valley is a train station)
08:03<anujmore>I thought I could use the speed and capacity of trains to transport woods at once, but now :(
08:05<@Yexo>anujmore: it depends on the station rating for woods, see
08:06<anujmore>Yexo: That page is godsent!
08:06<k-man>is there a newgraf that makes signals easier to see?

08:09<TrueBrain>GENERAL NOTICE: all related certificates are updated
08:13-!-ar3k [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:19<yorick>is there a newgrf that makes the difference between red and green signals easier to see for the colourblind?
08:21<andythenorth>one was being worked on
08:21<andythenorth>but there were some falling-outs
08:21<andythenorth>with the developer
08:23<@planetmaker>yorick, that's indeed possibly a good idea. It needs graphics. Care to provide?
08:23<@planetmaker>I would even care to write the grf
08:24<@planetmaker>though that's a dead easy newgrf, too
08:24<yorick>planetmaker: you could make a static grf that replaces the digital signals with semaphores
08:24<yorick>or make them yellow and blue :P
08:24<@planetmaker>the graphics work is the difficult one, to make it nice and distinguishable
08:24<@planetmaker>yorick, yes, it will need to be a NewGRF which can be statically loaded
08:25<@planetmaker>otherwise it's not of much point to provide
08:26<@planetmaker>changing to semaphores might actually work also without graphics work
08:27<@planetmaker>Though I'd not like to loose the option to distinguish them - which in turn means 'graphics work required'
08:28<yorick>maybe make them black-white
08:28<@planetmaker>I'm asking you ;-)
08:28<anujmore>There's a train in my depot which is instructed to go to the station, but is not. Bug?
08:29<@planetmaker>missing signals?
08:29<@Yexo>anujmore: it's far more likely to be an error in your track layout or signals, but upload your savegame somewhere to be sure
08:30<anujmore>Yexo: I found it. Track design error (Not an error exactly(

08:39<ZirconiumX>hello all
08:39<ZirconiumX>s/all/all who aren't all
08:40-!-Devroush [] has joined #openttd
08:44<yorick>anyone know of red-blue colorblindness?
08:44<ZirconiumX>yes - why?
08:44<yorick>because we need signals that are colorblind-safe
08:45<ZirconiumX>maybe an advanced setting?
08:45<yorick>thinking of a static grf
08:45<yorick>but it needs new graphics
08:52<@Terkhen>IMO the best would be something big and not color based; not only for colorblindness but also for making them easier to check
08:53<@Yexo>but the colors make them easy to check
08:54-!-amkoroew [] has joined #openttd
08:54<@planetmaker>big and colourful are not mutually exclusive ;-)
08:54<@Terkhen>I find the signals not based on colours easier to check myself :)
08:55*planetmaker never uses semaphore signals
08:55<@Yexo>I don't use those either
08:55<@Terkhen>I only use them
08:57<yorick>they confuse me
08:57*yorick can't remember when they're red
08:58<ZirconiumX>when they're down
08:58<ZirconiumX>when they're up it means go
08:58<yorick>they go left-right
08:58<ZirconiumX>...I think
08:59<ZirconiumX>left is go
08:59<ZirconiumX>right is stop
08:59-!-amkoroew1 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:00<yorick>should the build signal type also be reset?
09:00<yorick>planetmaker: ^
09:00<@planetmaker>I'd find it irritating
09:01<@planetmaker>as I usually build always the same type.
09:01<yorick>you always build entry signals?
09:01<@planetmaker>yes :-P
09:01<yorick>if they want to set a default signal type they can do so in the patch options
09:02<@planetmaker>but reset means: it gets reset to, say, block signals, when I'm building a piece of tracks where it needs path signals. or vice versa
09:02<@planetmaker>that's already set there
09:02<@Terkhen>the problem comes when I prefer one kind of signals and my partner prefers another
09:02<@planetmaker>Terkhen, static newgrfs;-)
09:02<@Terkhen>I have never used them
09:02<@planetmaker>remap all -> semaphore or remap all -> light
09:03<@planetmaker>but none such exists afaik
09:03<@Terkhen>can you define a grf as static somehow, or do you need to load it as static?
09:03<@planetmaker>and it might not be the best solution out there
09:03<anujmore>Something's really wrong with one of the local authorities.
09:03<@planetmaker>Terkhen, you need to edit your cfg
09:04<@Terkhen>hmm... it is not a great solution then
09:04<yorick>Terkhen: bug alberth to make a gui
09:05<@planetmaker>Terkhen, yes... it needs GUI support
09:05<@Terkhen>for marking a newgrf as static?
09:05<@planetmaker>yes. And possibly also indicating which newgrf can be set as static in the first place
09:05<@planetmaker>Not many can
09:06<@Terkhen>I don't think a static newgrf is the best solution for signals
09:06<@planetmaker>Neither do I
09:06<@planetmaker>an 3-state UI switch which remaps the sprites accordingly would probably be better
09:06<@Terkhen>it should be transparent to the user: if you select "I only want to use this type", the signal GUI only shows that type for building and only shows that type as built ingame
09:06<@planetmaker>in the adv. settings under GUI
09:06<@Terkhen>if you select both types, it would look as it does now
09:07<yorick>planetmaker: // need feedback :)
09:07<@planetmaker>agreed, Terkhen
09:07<@Terkhen>hi Belugas
09:08<yorick>hello Belugas
09:08<@planetmaker>hi Belugas
09:08<@planetmaker>yorick, I can't test now
09:08<@Belugas>hello you all :)
09:09-!-Brianetta [] has joined #openttd
09:10<Eddi|zuHause>* andythenorth is adding ships of various sizes, but not new graphics for them :P <-- yes, i noticed that problem as well, it's hard to find a ship size that matches exactly my train size for transfer-purposes. non-grf solutions would be a "load at least 80%" order or a "put the train on the ship" order
09:18<Eddi|zuHause>the worst design idea about signals was to make them depend on the road side...
09:19<@Terkhen>is that a game setting, not an user setting?
09:20<Eddi|zuHause>it's a GUI setting, but when the road side is "left", changing it does not do anything
09:20<Eddi|zuHause>the setting is "always left" or "same as road side"
09:20-!-Belugas [~belugas@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:20<Eddi|zuHause>which is just stupid

09:21-!-zachanim2 [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
09:21<@Yexo>not stupid, just missing the value "always right"
09:21-!-zachanima [] has joined #openttd
09:22<Eddi|zuHause>it should have been "always left" or "always right" from the start.
09:23<@Yexo>what is wrong with "same as road side"? it might fit certain game-themes, and after all the value is not stored in savegames
09:23<Eddi|zuHause>rail side and road side are not closely connected...
09:23<@Yexo>I didn't know that
09:24<Eddi|zuHause>e.g. in france, trains drive on the left, but cars on the right
09:24<Eddi|zuHause>except in the formerly german parts of france
09:25<Eddi|zuHause>in austria it's really screwed up...
09:25<Eddi|zuHause>in some areas trains drive on left, and in others they drive on right
09:28<Noldo_>does it matter, as long as they are on the tracks they are ment to be?
09:29<Eddi|zuHause>Noldo_: it has certain implications on engine construction and signal placement
09:30<@planetmaker>engine construction?
09:30<@Yexo>not in-game
09:31<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: it's better when the train driver sits on the same side as the signals along the track are. with steam engines it's problematic as a right-handed fireman would always stand on the left side, so it becomes fairly crowded when the train driver also has to be on the left side to see the signals
09:32<@planetmaker>yes, of course. I thought of ingame
09:32<Eddi|zuHause>that's (supposedly) the original reason why germany switched to right side
09:33<+glx><Eddi|zuHause> e.g. in france, trains drive on the left, but cars on the right <-- but metro drives on the right :)
09:34<Eddi|zuHause>glx: i guess that has some advantages with passenger flow in stations ;)
09:34<+glx>no it was to prevent trains to go on metro tracks
09:34<@planetmaker>how that?
09:34<@planetmaker>wouldn't it just make collisions more likely? ;-)

09:53<Mazur>Yeah, England, poor developing country that it is.
09:53<ZirconiumX>We have 'superfast' broadband (20M(B/b))

09:54<KenjiE20>we get a max of 2.5Mbps apparently

09:54<ZirconiumX> says they were lying
09:55<@Yexo>getting 16 instead of 20 is not so bad

10:52<@planetmaker>hi _Ben_
10:52<ZirconiumX>hello _Ben_
10:52<_Ben_>Quick Question if anyone knows, can't find the answer. Snowline heights - is it possible to change the snowline height on an exsisting game or scnario where the cfg file has no effect?
10:52*ZirconiumX braces himself
10:52<@planetmaker>_Ben_, not really
10:53<@Yexo>ZirconiumX: start using proper indentation and you'll notice an error
10:53<@planetmaker>Changing the NewGRF config might do that, but that might have other, far severe consequences
10:53<@Yexo>hint: the brace on line 87 does not close the opening brace on line 7
10:53<@planetmaker>oh joy of coding style :-)
10:53<@Yexo>and squirrel allowing functions within functions :p
10:54<_Ben_>planetmaker and zirconiumX - cheers guys
10:54<ZirconiumX>no problem
10:54<_Ben_>pitty, I should have thourght about snowline before making a scenario
10:54<@Yexo>I think it is possible
10:54<@Yexo>you'll have to use the commandline though
10:54<ZirconiumX>_Ben_:We all make mistakes
10:55<@Terkhen>it is possible, you need to change the setting manually using the commandline
10:55<@Terkhen>I don't remember its name, though
10:55<@planetmaker>that works?
10:55<@Yexo>_Ben_: try "set snow_line 88" in the console
10:55<@planetmaker>cool, never tried it, I guess :-)
10:55<@Yexo>the value 88 has to be 8 times the tile height
10:55<@Yexo>so 88 means snow at height 11
10:55<@Yexo>40 would be snow at height 5, etc.
10:56<@planetmaker>and this operation is 100% safe as opposed to newgrf changes ;-)
10:56<_Ben_>Yexo - genious, that works
10:56<_Ben_>thanks man
10:57-!-Sacro_ [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
10:57<@Yexo>only risk is that a few houses above the new snowline might be without snow or houses under the snowline with snow, depending on how you change it
10:57-!-Sacro [] has joined #openttd
10:57<@Yexo>but that should be easily remedied by removing those houses and growing the town again
10:57<_Ben_>yeah I only have terrain and rivers so far, so that's not an issue
10:57<@planetmaker>that'll change with the passage of time ;-)
10:58<@planetmaker>what size is the scenario?
10:58<@planetmaker>I see :-)
10:58<_Ben_>it's a scenario in the increased height level patch
10:58<@planetmaker>oh :-(
10:59<_Ben_>taken...'some time' to do. hopefully it'll be fun to play
10:59<_Ben_>wonder if the 88-11 thing is the same
10:59<@planetmaker>you'll have to find out
10:59<@planetmaker>I recall that snowline might be one of the funky places for the height levels patch
11:00<@Yexo>if it is the same, the snowline will be limited to a maximum of 255 = 32 tiles
11:00<@planetmaker>hm... More height levels could probably be even implemented without all the mapgen changes...
11:00<_Ben_>88 is still 11
11:00<@Yexo>if it isn't some newgrfs might be broken
11:00<@Yexo>planetmaker: yes, it can
11:00<@planetmaker>rivers after all are not generated, either
11:01<@Yexo>one of the problems of that patch is that it isn't split up
11:01<@planetmaker>and still are part of the game and available for SE
11:01<@planetmaker>Yexo, I know. I tried to read it... it was... tiresome
11:01<@Terkhen>that's the biggest IMO
11:01<_Ben_>ah, it does expose the bug whee the snowline height doesn't remove the original snowline (if you move it upwards) - I do have the gradual snowline grf. Think I've read this bug report before
11:02<@planetmaker>too much focus on the mapgen stuff, too little on the other quirks. Like snow line
11:02<@Yexo>_Ben_: grf snowlines override the static setting, so if you have a snowline grf you'll have to change that one
11:02<@planetmaker>_Ben_, tiles will need a bit time to adjust to a new snowline height. Snow has to 'melt'
11:03<ZirconiumX>planetmaker: or get used by small children
11:03<@planetmaker>like a few ingame days
11:08<_Ben_>got it jusssst right, thanks for the help

12:15<Ammler>should make distclean not remove the openttd.grf?
12:15<Rubidium>Ammler: why would it?
12:16<Ammler>so it gets rebuild
12:16<Rubidium>that's not what distclean is for
12:17<Rubidium>distclean is, as per convention, for removing everything that was not distributed
12:17<Rubidium>maintainer-clean *does* remove openttd.grf though
12:18<Rubidium>as that, per convention, removes everything that can be regenerated
12:18<Ammler>the issue is that you need to run configure to run that :-)
12:18-!-Doorslammer [] has joined #openttd
12:19<Rubidium>we're only following convention
12:19<Ammler>yeah, no problem
12:19<Ammler>openttd.grf is the only file, right?
12:20<Ammler>well it is according to the makefile
12:20<Rubidium>technically the .sq files are as well... but I can't be bothered about those

12:37<Ammler>does it make sense to run "make maintainer-clean all" ?
12:38<Ammler>doesn't work
12:38<Ammler>so I assume, debian runs configure twice

12:54<Rubidium>no, you have to call it
12:54<Ammler>so you provide it but don't use it
12:55<Rubidium>yes, like "all" is provided but not used
12:55<Rubidium>or "clean"
12:55<Ammler>ok, then it doesn't hurt, if we don't use it either :-)
12:56<Ammler>hmm, openttd install does depend on all afaik
12:58<Ammler>sounds wrong but well :-)
12:59<Rubidium>well, then "install" is provided and not used
13:00-!-andythenorth [] has quit [Quit: andythenorth]
13:00<Ammler>no, you use install and it looks like you don't need to use all because install depends on it
13:00<Ammler>that is a bit uncommon
13:01<Ammler>as install is for root and all for the user
13:01<Ammler>so it could happen, that you get root files in your user space
13:02<Ammler>but the conventions might allow it, else you wouldn't do it :-P
13:03<Rubidium>'install' Compile the program [...]
13:03<Rubidium>kinda sounds like the convention prescribes it
13:04<Ammler>"f possible, write the install target rule so that it does not modify anything in the directory where the program was built, provided ‘make all’ has just been done. This is convenient for building the program under one user name and installing it under another. "

14:38<andythenorth>it makes industrial trams a bit crappy
14:38<andythenorth>no point using auto-replace with them
14:38<Ammler>I thought, subcargoes are a kind of "different livery" for same cargo
14:39<Ammler>well, that is a bug
14:39<andythenorth>it is, but I can't fix it
14:39<andythenorth>there is also a crash when using auto-replace with articulated RVs that are in a group

18:51<Eddi|zuHause>peter1138: i think starting scenarios on server is seriously underdeveloped
18:53<@peter1138>seriously is
18:53<@peter1138>also i'm getting warnings about no data from the server for x seconds :S
18:54<@peter1138>i mean, i know, it's a 2048x2048 map, but still :S
18:55<@peter1138>oh wait
18:55<@peter1138>that's autosave, right

19:24<k-man>so normal signals are fine for station exits?
19:25<Eddi|zuHause>i exclusively use path signals, but i'm probably not building anything close to what you will be requesting...
19:28<k-man>maybe I don't understand path signals properly but I found they did not perform as well as pre signals
