03:21<V453000>theory: I want to make 2 stations on each end of the map. Each of those should load and unload goods, exchanging them. I want to have full load oat both goods loading sites. To equalize the amounts of goods in both pickup stations, I am using a network with primary industries where trains load at primary, go drop cargo to first factory, then they load again and unload at the second one, therefore in the long run they deliver the same amount of
03:21-!-Brianetta [] has joined #openttd
03:22<V453000>(the two goods pickup stations have equal ratings and factories also say equal % of transported. Will then both factories produce exactly the same amount of goods in the long run?
03:22-!-ar3k [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:23<@planetmaker>No. As the production changes on the primary industries are random
03:24<V453000>primaries deliver to both factories equally
03:24<@planetmaker>On average they'll be equal. But in any particular game, they might diverge
03:24<@planetmaker>V453000: yes, but you'll have to tune that on every production change then
03:24<V453000>why? when trains go to drop 1 first, then to the other one, they just deliver the same amount
03:24<@planetmaker>production depends on input for a factory
03:24<Mazur>planetmaker, statistically it will average out in the lnog run, though.
03:25<@planetmaker>oh, you mean they serve both?
03:25<@planetmaker>the primary ones?
03:25<Mazur>yes, alternately.
03:25<@planetmaker>then it *should*
03:25<@planetmaker>and afaik
03:25<V453000>I think so, too :) but I dont know much about those ratings and stuff
03:26<Mazur>Well, I know about statistics, and they will approach equality.
03:27<@Alberth>then you also know about assumptions there, and I am not convinced those hold in OpenTTD :)
03:27<@Alberth>mornink all btw
03:27<@planetmaker>moin :-)
03:28<V453000>hi :)
03:28<@planetmaker>but statistics are... indeed "just" statistics
03:29<@Alberth>simplest way is just to try it :)

07:27<yorick>is there a RoadTypesToRoadType function?
07:27<yorick>(or an easy way to get the RoadType of a road depot?)
07:32<@planetmaker>grep -Ri "RoadTypesToRoadType" src/*
07:33<@planetmaker>easy, right?
07:35<@Terkhen>if you don't find it I suggest checking the header where RoadTypes and RoadType are defined, but it is highly likely that such a function exists
07:35<@planetmaker>my grep expression WILL find it ;-)
07:35<@planetmaker>(if called in the main dir of the checkout)
07:35<@Terkhen>not if it has a different name, although that's probably the right name
07:36<@planetmaker>well. I did execute it ;-)
07:36<@planetmaker>as such I wonder why he asks, if he already knows the name, instead of then searching for it himself
07:37<@Terkhen>oh, sorry :P

07:56<yorick>inline RoadType RoadTypesToRoadType(const RoadTypes rts) { uint32 result; asm("bsr %1, %0" : "=r"(result) : "r"(rts)); return result; } might work

08:01<@Terkhen>looks confusing, you should look at RoadTypeToRoadTypes and invert what it does

10:26<yorick>are there no tram-only level crossings?
10:27<Eddi|zuHause>for some very obscure reasons that i don't remember
10:27<Eddi|zuHause>something to do with missing sprites
10:27<yorick>that's evil
10:30<@planetmaker>missing sprites could be helped

10:37<Ammler>are there rail-tram crossing in rl?
10:39<Ammler>can you buy a macbook without osx?
10:39<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: i know a few tram-rail crossing, but all of them including road
10:40<yorick>__ln__: :o
10:40<@Alberth>__ln__: we need such a site for MS vs Linux :)
10:41<aber>hmm, but Linux is more expensive...
10:42<@Alberth>is it? MS is paying to use windows nowadays?
10:42<Eddi|zuHause>linux has many hidden (as in not easily measurable) time costs
10:42<Ammler>Alberth: just cut 50$ from those MS pcs
10:43<aber>no, the companies usually get something to put windows on every machine...
10:43<Ammler>Eddi|zuHause: indeed, you need half an our for setup complete linux, half a day for complete windows
10:43<@Alberth>Eddi|zuHause: like windows is a marvel of speed :)
10:43<Ammler>an hour*
10:44<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: and have you counted the long hours of discussion which distribution you should get?
10:44<aber>And what about selecting the correct window manager...
10:44<Ammler>and you need another half a day to remove all teh oem rubbish from a windows pc :-)
10:44<Eddi|zuHause>or the hours of learning how to use a console (which you arguably do more often in linux than in windows)
10:44<@Alberth>anybody that does not know just picks a big distribution
10:45<aber>The bigger the better? Just use windows...
10:45<Ammler>Eddi|zuHause: using console is just speed up, a windows like user doesn't need console
10:45<@Alberth>aber: how is that a disadvantage compared to having no choice at all ? your problem is easily fixed by picking just one
10:46<Ammler>I guess, you are even faster to install linux and to cleanup a bought windows pc
10:48<Eddi|zuHause>and did you count 18 hours of downloading a linux DVD?
10:48<Ammler>lol, poor dialup user :-P
10:49<@peter1138>i've never used a linux dvd
10:49<@peter1138>only debian netinsts
10:49<@peter1138>and i have done it over dialup :)
10:49*Terkhen also uses netinsts
10:50<Eddi|zuHause>netinst is ok, if you have a spare PC to use in the meantime
10:50<aber>Or if you have Gigabit Internet...
10:51<@Terkhen>patience works too
10:51<Eddi|zuHause>if you accept your withdrawal symptoms :p
10:52<@Terkhen>you could always leave it downloading all night, but even when I had my crappy connection it did not take more than three hours to download and install arch with gnome
10:52<TWerkhoven>or get it all started before bedtime and let it run overnight (or overday if your a nightperson)
10:53<__ln__>TWerkhoven: *you're
10:53<@peter1138>netinst doesn't take very long
10:55<Ammler>depends quite much, what you install...
10:56*yorick prefers usb-install
10:57<Ammler>usb? that is just another media
10:58<@peter1138>i just do base installs. i can use the system while other stuff is installing later

11:44<Nite>question about towngrowth
11:45<Nite>we know that 4 or more well served busstations make towns grow nicely
11:46<Nite>do trainstations wit a busstop (bussymbol) also count as real busstops even when there is no bus ever visiting it ??
11:49-!-Pulec [] has joined #openttd
11:49<@Alberth>Random guess: the buses have nothing to do with it, you just need good servicing, a train would also work. However, getting as many visits as you have with a bus is going to be a challenge, I think.
11:51<Chris_Booth>lol @ Nite
11:51<Chris_Booth>its any station
11:51<Chris_Booth>as long as it is well serviced
11:51<Chris_Booth>within the city limits
11:51<Chris_Booth>(the part of the city that is paved)
11:51<Chris_Booth>silly nite
11:51<Chris_Booth>no need for buses
11:52-!-Doorslammer [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
11:56<Eddi|zuHause>nothing to do with city limits either
11:56<Eddi|zuHause>only that the station is named after the city is relevant
11:57<Ammler>Chris_Booth: buses are better as you have higher frequency
11:57<Ammler>(less waiting time)
11:57<Eddi|zuHause>and "well serviced" means "at least one piece of cargo was loaded or unloaded in the last 20 days"
11:58<Eddi|zuHause>neither the vehicle type nor the cargo type matters
11:58-!-Lakie [~Lakie@] has joined #openttd
11:58<Chris_Booth>Eddi|zuHause: I could prove you wrong
11:58<Chris_Booth>showing you 2 cities
11:59<Chris_Booth>1 with 5 well served coal station
11:59<Chris_Booth>1 with 5 pax stations
11:59<Chris_Booth>the pax one will grow faster
11:59<Ammler>Chris_Booth: do you chat with your phone?
12:00<Chris_Booth>what Ammler :S
12:00<Chris_Booth>I don't have a phone
12:00<Ammler>your lines are that short
12:00-!-JVassie [~James@] has joined #openttd
12:00<Chris_Booth>ooh yeah they are realy short
12:00<Chris_Booth>and quite snappy
12:01<Chris_Booth>but no I am on my PCs IRC
12:01<yorick>so you have no excuse
12:01<Chris_Booth>not on my iPhone at the moment, so if I want to I could make are realy realy realy realy long line. that will probably never end. any how I am rameling now
12:03<yorick>Chris_Booth: are you drunk?
12:03<Eddi|zuHause>IRC has a 512(?) character limit for lines
12:03<Chris_Booth>no not drunk. I haven't had a drink yet this week

12:14-!-Lakie [~Lakie@] has joined #openttd
12:14<Nite>must it be pax stations or any 4 stations with high rating?
12:15<@Alberth>take a guess
12:16<Chris_Booth>I think it pax but others say not Nite
12:18<Nite>and iam STILL not sure if more pax/mail transported makes towns grow faster
12:20<@Alberth>what stops you from testing it?
12:20-!-tokai|mdlx [] has joined #openttd
12:23<Nite>it stops me that towns will grow fast when i do much bus and train service but i do not know the exact "why" then
12:25<Nite>it also seems that one towni pump goods into grows much faster than others but the wiki states otherwise ...

14:20<andythenorth>implementation aside, what are the problems with idea of players owning industries?
14:21<Wolf01> lovely <3
14:21<@Belugas>the idea itself :)
14:22<Eddi|zuHause>it adds a level of gameplay that needs careful balancing for multiplayer purposes. and the game is totally unbalanced
14:22<andythenorth>not sure it could be balanced for MP
14:22<andythenorth>it might be quite like monopoly...
14:23<andythenorth>although it was balanced in RT3 when there were competitors
14:23<@Belugas>imagine a guy so filty rich that he could buy all iundustries
14:23<@Belugas>where's the fun?
14:23<@peter1138>is like DHL owning power stations
14:23<@peter1138>doesn't fit
14:23*Belugas googles acronym
14:23<Eddi|zuHause>well, the DB does own power stations ;)
14:24<andythenorth>ach, screw real life
14:24<andythenorth>it was fun in railroad tycoon 3, but that was mostly an industry game
14:24<andythenorth>not a train game
14:24<andythenorth>nearly every challenge was won by 'first by industry'
14:24<andythenorth>by / buy /s
14:24<andythenorth>then run industry for 5-10 years to get money
14:24<andythenorth>buy trains later, only to meet scenario goals
14:25<andythenorth>RT3 cargo moved on the map without trains, which was....awesome :)
14:25<Eddi|zuHause>that kinda defeats the whole point
14:26<andythenorth>hokey dokey
14:28<@Belugas>let's talk about the idea... what more would you gain owning your industry, i mean, apart from what we can do today?
14:29-!-Zuu [] has joined #openttd
14:31<andythenorth>from profit
14:31<andythenorth>which implies some code that has to be specced
14:31<andythenorth>I'm not thinking it's a good idea
14:31<andythenorth>just curious what's bad about it
14:32<andythenorth>in MP, you could make money without owning any vehicles
14:32<andythenorth>! transport tycoon :)
14:33<@Belugas>going too fast... from profit: what profits? how different would be the dais generatio of profits?
14:33<@Belugas>said, not dais

14:33*andythenorth is making certain assumptions

14:34<andythenorth>other assumptions may be possible :)

15:34<yozh>Hi all.
15:37<yozh>I'd like to report a bug agains last version of OpenTTD. And I cannot login to BTS. I cannot login/password pair of my old account, and I cannot register a new account: I open confirmation link, and it still requests me to confirm registration.
15:37<yorick>what is the difference between a steep slope and a normal slope? (like SLOPE_STEEP_W and SLOPE_NWS)?
15:38<yozh>Bugreport itself (about path finding): — last trail stuck, it shoult take free track.
15:38<yozh>train stucks
15:38<yorick>oh...steep slope has one corner with two difference from highest
15:38<Eddi|zuHause>yorick: steep slopes have 2 level difference between highest and lowest point
15:38<Rubidium>yozh: probably is just a pathfinder penalty thing
15:38<Eddi|zuHause>yorick: check docs/tileh.png
15:39<Rubidium>those penalties simply can't be right for all cases, but they're right for the most common cases
15:40<Eddi|zuHause>yozh: go to the ingame console and increase pf.yapf.rail_pbs_cross_penalty
15:40<yozh>This particular case annoys me a lot: track refuse to take "wait lines" and blocks main track.
15:40<yozh>s/track/train s/refuse/refuses/ Sorry :)
15:41<yozh>Eddi|zuHause: Thanks, I'll try.
15:41<yorick>Eddi|zuHause: I found it already, thanks :)
15:41<Eddi|zuHause>yozh: each increase by 100 makes it search 1 tile further for a detour, for each tile length of you trains
15:42<Rubidium>also those sharp corners add quite a bit of pathfinder penalties
15:42<Rubidium>which is why it doesn't quite like to go there
15:43<Rubidium>e.g. a 45 degree corner adds 1 tile penalty, a 90 degree corner 6
15:43<Rubidium>which is (basically) why it needs the increased rail_pbs_cross_penalty
15:43<Rubidium>or you have to lower the 90 degree corner penalty
15:44<@Alberth>or make less sharp corners
15:47<yozh>OK, I'll try to play with parameters.
15:48<yozh>One more question: is it possible to put OpenTTD process to background in MacOS X? It ignores Command-Tab combination.
15:49<yozh>(actually, it ignores "Command" and just handles "Tab" as time acceleration)
15:50<Eddi|zuHause>there's some weird setting somewhere that switches meaning of command and control, or something
15:50<Eddi|zuHause>have you tried other key combinations?
15:51<Eddi|zuHause>also, you can switch to windowed mode in the game settings
15:51<yozh>What other combination? Command-Tab is standard OSX combination to switch between processes.
15:52<Eddi|zuHause>i have no idea about mac os... there are only weird people which use that...
15:52<Eddi|zuHause>on "real" systems, it's Alt+Tab
15:53<yozh>Eddi|zuHause: Hahaha. BTW, switching to window mode helps.
15:53<@planetmaker>it usually helps to switch between windows
15:54<Eddi|zuHause>"at night it's colder than outside"...
