00:00<KittenKoder>Anyone familiar with NML alert right now?

00:22<Pikka>KittenKoder, it'd probably be better to code it "properly" as a vehicle.
00:22<KittenKoder>Then what ID would I use for the replacement?
00:23<KittenKoder>All I want to do is replace the sprite, not change anything else.
00:23<Pikka>within opengfx+?
00:24<KittenKoder>Not directly though, as a GRF.
00:24<Pikka>well, if opengfx+ just uses the default sprites, then I guess replacing the sprites would work.
00:25<KittenKoder>I'll try and see what it does.
00:25<KittenKoder>Once I get the sprites themselves done.

01:40<KittenKoder>Wait, it looks like they already chose new ones.
01:43<KittenKoder>Which is a good thing because I don't want to code a whole thing just to get replacement sprites. LOL

03:45<mosi|work>is there a current copy/paste patch for 1.1.2 ?
03:46<@planetmaker>1.1.2 with a c&p patch is not 1.1.2 anymore.
03:47<@planetmaker>thus you can use a nightly right away
03:47<mosi|work>that i might actually do, cheers
03:48<@planetmaker>basides: the newest version is most likely found in the patch's thread or nowhere ;-)
03:49<mosi|work>just found it, latest release was aug 15. i was thinking that was last month for some reason
03:50<@planetmaker>one month is also not much time

04:28<KittenKoder>I am of the mind that I suck at drawing sprites.
04:38<@planetmaker>it's not a job done quickly nor learnt quickly, I think
04:39<KittenKoder>I need to learn to draw them by hand.
04:40<KittenKoder>I have a pen tablet ... don't know why I keep forgetting to use it.
04:40<@planetmaker>some people use 3D models to get the shape about right. But all better 8bpp sprite artists give them a manual retouch as far as I know.
04:41<@planetmaker>those who don't draw them w/o a model right away that is
04:41<KittenKoder>I can model well in 3D ... but they don't transfer well, they wind up needing to be almost completely redrawn.
04:42<KittenKoder>... and then I just can't get it to line up at all. >.<
04:43<KittenKoder>What I am thinking of is making a 3D model of the basic outline to get the lighting right, then draw the rest by hand.

04:44-!-fjb [] has joined #openttd
04:45<KittenKoder>The hardest part is that the color conversions wind up with a lot of animated colors, then adding the company colors is another story.
04:46<@Terkhen>IIRC egrvts was done with 3D models converted to 8bpp sprites, for example
04:49<KittenKoder>I saw that, but I can't get the same results no matter what I do.

04:53<KittenKoder>Just realized one reason it's been hard.
04:55-!-pjpe [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
04:56<KittenKoder>Hey, can the purple block be used for custom colors?
04:56<KittenKoder>In the DOS palette.
04:57<Hirundo>No, you can't change the palette, it's hard-coded in OpenTTD
04:58<KittenKoder>Okay, thanks, just checking because it would have been nice, but not needed.
04:59<@planetmaker>well... there are re-colour sprites. Thus you can re-sort the palette
05:00<KittenKoder>I saw those commands in NML
05:06-!-andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
05:06-!-andythenorth [] has left #openttd []
05:07<@Yexo>KittenKoder: if you need more colors than are available in the default palette you'll need to use a 32bpp blitter
05:08<@planetmaker>Yexo: still. I already wondered whether one could assign other colours to the unused slots in the DOS palette
05:08<@planetmaker>not on newgrf-side but on openttd side
05:08<@Yexo>openttd could do that probably
05:09<KittenKoder>Yexo, yeah, I saw that, but I don't need a LOT more colors. ;)
05:09<@planetmaker>it's afterall wasted pixels which is not needed anymore anywhere
05:09<KittenKoder>Just the purples as a gradient would have been cool.
05:11<@peter1138>18 unused colours isn't it?
05:11<KittenKoder>Erm, 12, math is off.
05:11<@peter1138>right, i'm looking at the windows palette, d'oh
05:11<KittenKoder>For the DOS palette.
05:12<KittenKoder>Windows, yeah, I think it's 18 but I'm too lazy to load that one up now. :p
05:12<KittenKoder>But then again, the DOS one has two gray gradients.
05:12<@planetmaker>only fixing the DOS palette is interesting
05:13<Pikka>KittenKoder, the secret to rendering sprites is to use a palette containing only the colours that you want :)
05:13<KittenKoder>That's what I had JUST realized, Pikka .... LOL
05:13<@planetmaker>Pikka: thus you render already with the proper palette?
05:13<Pikka>for example, my av8 palette only really has the two company colours and shades of grey
05:13<KittenKoder>I was looking at the palettes then thought "if I just turn all the colors I don't want to pure white ...."
05:13<Pikka>pure pink is a better idea :P
05:14<@peter1138>magenta :D
05:14<Pikka>him too
05:14<KittenKoder>I was thinking of using pure pink as the company color for the rendering.
05:14<@planetmaker>CC has shades. You don't want to loose that
05:14<Pikka>well, you want the 8 shades of company colour, so it's better to stick with blue and green imo
05:14<KittenKoder>Well, a gradient pink, then it would be easier to convert while keeping the other colors.
05:14<@planetmaker>KittenKoder: CC is the blue one
05:15<KittenKoder>But metalic colors are bluish. >.<
05:15<@planetmaker>if you do it pink, you add an unnecessary step
05:15<Pikka>I guess there's no reason you couldn't use pink though, planetmaker
05:15<@planetmaker>except that it needs conversion ;-)
05:15<@planetmaker>but yes... maybe to distinguish
05:15<@planetmaker>Pikka: from pink -> blue before actual usage?
05:15<Pikka>nope, the colours in your palette don't need to be the same colours that will be displayed in ttd
05:15<KittenKoder>Not really, I can make a custom palette where the pink replaces the CC in the positions, then using gimp I just apply the new palette without actually converting.
05:16<@planetmaker>hm.. .right. Just palette entries
05:16<@planetmaker>didn't think of that
05:16<@planetmaker>I should make more use of that. Thanks for the prod
05:17<KittenKoder>Gimp lets you apply palettes in two ways, going from RBG to palette it calculates the "best" index for each pixel, but switching the palette after going to indexed it just applies the new colors to each pixel using the same index values.
05:17<@planetmaker>I know
05:17<KittenKoder>Oh. >.<
05:17<KittenKoder>I think I typed all that out for myself really.
05:17<KittenKoder>I'm lame like that sometimes.
05:19<@planetmaker>just compiling the new gimp versions is a bitch :-P - thus I can't test the 2.8 alphas ;-)
05:19<@planetmaker>they sadly depend on libs which are not readily available
05:20<KittenKoder>Too many programs have been doing that lately.
05:21<KittenKoder>Gnome is using a LOT of unstables for their latest official releases even. That annoys me.
05:21<KittenKoder>Not Gnome, Ubuntu.
05:22<KittenKoder>Gah, I should be sleeping, just getting palette ideas.
05:23<@planetmaker>Requested 'babl >= 0.1.4' but version of babl is 0.1.2 <-- and 0.1.4 is not released
05:28-!-Adambean [] has joined #openttd
05:47<KittenKoder>There, I think I finally made a palette that will make sprite conversion from 3D a lot simpler for me ....
05:48<KittenKoder>Whited out all the animated colors, changed cc1 to purple, whited out the purple, and made cc2 pure green.
05:52-!-Eddi|zuHause [] has joined #openttd
05:55<KittenKoder>IT WORKS!
05:55*KittenKoder does the caramelldansen
05:56<KittenKoder>No more searching for miscolored pixels the hard way.
05:57-!-Xaroth_ [~Xaroth@] has joined #openttd
05:57<KittenKoder>If I venture into non-vehicle objects, I can make different conversion palette bases depending on what animated color is used.
05:59*KittenKoder wonders if this technique would be nice to share.

11:01<@planetmaker>actually, if you ask me now, AlexLivingstone, I have some pretty new OpenGFX in stock. I can make a special offer of only 50€. Or as multi-user version for 500€ (up to 50 users) or 1000€ (unlimited users)
11:01<@planetmaker>Deal? :-P
11:16<Rubidium>planetmaker: oh, that sounds nice... let me look up the back account number you can get that money from... got it somewhere
11:19<AlexLivingstone>alex StoneD =_=
11:21<Rubidium>planetmaker: though I'd sell SDL as a graphics library
11:21<AlexLivingstone>yes we do IT
11:22<@planetmaker>We could sell most things here - except opensfx
11:23<AlexLivingstone>h old, i am in a buy buy situation. can only pay with hometrained
11:30<andythenorth>AlexLivingstone: I have $10,000 here which you could have a share of
11:31<andythenorth>but first please send me $1,000 to unlock it with

11:40<AlexLivingstone>but who buys videos 2day
11:41<AlexLivingstone>maybe planetmaker can ask for the buy-IN
11:42<@planetmaker>you don't honestly want anyone of us to pay for something related to openttd developement done by a 3rd party side?
11:43<@planetmaker>we all work for the joy of it on this project and anyone is free to do so, too
11:46<@planetmaker>anyone can of course also spend the money on it as s/he pleases
11:47<@planetmaker>but it's not like we can fund any development
11:48<@planetmaker>and I think I heard this story already
11:48<Pinkbeast>planetmaker> I'm slightly impressed you seem to understand what he's on about
11:50<@planetmaker>Pinkbeast: not sure. But I just got a flashback
11:51<@planetmaker>and there it was like "we make openttd a browser game if you can sponsor $$$"

15:48<appe>evening, fellows.
15:48<appe>i have a particular issue with version 1.1.2 (and 1.1.1, wich it originates in).
15:48<appe>in desert mode, the food vagon invisible.
15:49<@Alberth>changed any newgrfs in the past in that game?
15:49<appe>no, never used any
15:50-!-DayDreamer [~DayDreame@] has joined #openttd
15:50<appe>i uninstalled 1.1.1 when i had the issue, and installed 1.1.2 fresh of the site (openttd-1.1.2-windows-win64)
15:50<appe>and it's still there, even in new maps (and saves)
15:51<@Alberth>yeah, good applications are stable across re-installs
15:51<appe>when i buy the vagon, it gets bought and obviosly "is there" (though invisible). when the train runs it doesnt load, or anything.
15:51<appe>what do you suggest?
15:52<@Alberth>I am clueless what happens, at this moment
15:52<@Alberth>do you have a save game?
15:52<appe>i can upload it
15:52<appe>hold on.
15:52-!-pugi [] has joined #openttd
15:53<@Alberth>what year is the game?
15:54<appe>Alberth: 2012.
15:54<appe>and it's a monorail
15:55<@Alberth>ok, confirmed, I also have a gap at that place :)
15:55<@Alberth>without using your save game
15:55<appe>ah, dash darnit
15:55<appe>well, time for a rail change, i guess.
15:56<@Alberth>you are using OpenGFX ?

15:59<@Alberth>it may be an issue of OpenGFX
15:59<@Alberth>I can load food at your Drunnton Food Processing plant
15:59<@Alberth>using invisible food wagons
16:00<@Alberth>so it looks like it is a pure graphics issue
16:00<@Alberth>planetmaker: ^^
16:06<@Alberth>Latest stable does not mention that bug, which makes sense as its release date is a few days before that bug report. You may want to try a nightly instead:
16:08<appe>ah, perfect
16:08<appe>thanks :)
16:10<@planetmaker>Alberth: it is an issue in the currently released OpenGFX
16:10<@planetmaker>it's fixed in OpenGFX trunk
16:10<@planetmaker>^ appe

16:11<@planetmaker>maybe time for an early release :-)
16:11<appe>how does one get a opengfx trunk?
16:11<@planetmaker>FooBar was very busy with fixing and implementing stuff
16:11<@planetmaker>appe: follow the link you were given by alberth
16:11<@planetmaker>trunk = nightly
16:12<@Alberth>(close enough :) )
16:12<@planetmaker>today identical ;-)

16:32<appe>it worked!
16:32<appe>hm, though
16:32<appe>while im at it
16:32<appe>newgrf are like graphics (sprites)?
16:32<Zuu>Can be
16:32<Pinkbeast>A bit more than that.
16:33<Zuu>But can also be a lot more than that ^
16:33<Pinkbeast>newgrfs are typically new vehicles or industries, but the term covers a multitude of sins
16:33<Zuu>For example there exist town name NewGRFs that only provide new town name generators, but no new graphics.
16:34<@Alberth>appe: browse for a while :)
16:34<@Alberth>or look at the list newgrfs that you can download from bananas

16:38<Pinkbeast>Library's updated more frequently? (Which AI and which library?)

17:11<Pinkbeast>appe> FIRS is quite jolly and not as beset with micromanagement as ECS
17:11<Zuu>Perhaps, but why would the ratio be that large. Most users I would expect not to get into such things.
17:11<Zuu>But perhaps I should be happy that my library attracts 300 users that don't need an AI to "use" it :-p
17:11<appe>as what to the who now?
17:11*appe tries it out
17:11<andythenorth>appe: how many industries?
17:11<appe>uhm, many?
17:11<appe>i just enjoy building neat chains
17:11<appe>do i simply download the grf and load it?
17:11<andythenorth>current release on the content download service is 0.6.4
17:11<Pinkbeast>Don't load it in a running game or Comedy Will Ensue
17:11<andythenorth>you'll need vehicle sets that support it
17:11<appe>ah, ok.
17:11<appe>i took this
17:13<Pinkbeast>OK, but DWE is purely chrome. Any station tile is like any other, no matter how it looks, provided it has track. You do need sensible vehicle sets.
17:15<andythenorth>appe: quite a lot of vehicle sets work with FIRS

17:18<Pinkbeast>Not UKRS1?
17:19<Pinkbeast>eGRVTS seems to work with FIRS and starts very early with horse-drawn vehicles (pertinent if you're also using UKRS2 and FISH and starting early)

17:20<andythenorth>try the nightly
17:20<andythenorth>you can find all the bugs :)
17:20<Pinkbeast>I'd been wondering about that, although the UKRS2 livestock hole is more vexing
17:21<Eddi|zuHause>Pinkbeast: that's a feature.
17:22<Eddi|zuHause>although certainly an annoying one

17:22<Pinkbeast>Eddi> Pikka thinks it's a feature; I disagree.
17:23<andythenorth>make an add-on grf
17:23*andythenorth agrees with pikka btw
17:23<Pinkbeast>... although obviously if I don't like it I can suck it up because it's not like I did the set etc
17:24<andythenorth>opa_: depends what other sets you have
17:24<andythenorth>before 1830 it's really quite boring
17:24<Pinkbeast>opa> The eGRVTS horse vehicles are effectively around forever; the FISH sailing ships start in 17xx but are alas too slow to work with OTTD's payment structure a lot of the time.
17:24<andythenorth>and the horses are broken with realistic road vehicle acceleration, but you can turn that off
17:25<andythenorth>no sailing ships in FISH ;)
17:25<andythenorth>there's an early ships grf or such
17:25<Pinkbeast>Oh, sorry, yes, I was thinking of the early ships.
17:25<CIA-2>OpenTTD: frosch * r22755 /trunk/src/viewport.cpp: -Fix [FS#4727]: When marking tile selections dirty, use the height information of the corners instead of the surface slope. This is more accurate when the foundation is kind of undefined.
17:26<Pinkbeast>If I were doing it ( again, I would start in 1825 or so, with enough time to build some horse-drawn networks before the invention of the Planet.
17:26<Pinkbeast>But it's a long way from the Planet in 1830 to the Coppernob and Crampton making railways anything but a novelty for pax only

17:29<@planetmaker>just make sure you play w/o inflation if starting this very early
17:30<Pinkbeast>That was next on my list of things, yes. :-)
17:30*planetmaker doesn't play ever with inflation, though
17:31<Pinkbeast>I do sometimes, it helps to address the way the game just gets easier as vehicles get larger and more powerful.
17:33<@planetmaker>how does it address that?
17:33<Pinkbeast>Because they also get more expensive to run in real terms.
17:33<@planetmaker>you also get more money etc
17:33<Pinkbeast>Inflation increases costs faster than payments, does it not?
17:34<@planetmaker>yes indeed. slightly
17:34<@planetmaker>interestingly this leads to the fact that the inflation settings for 'hard' is actually easier than for the 'easy' difficulty setting
17:35<@planetmaker>as the relative increase in costs is more in the easy difficutlty
17:35<Pinkbeast>Also inflation has the odd characteristic that it makes loans slightly nicer
17:38<Pinkbeast>I'd slightly rather a shim that adjusts cargo payment rates based on the speed/power/cost of available vehicles in some deeply magic way, although I realise that's a hard problem

18:26<appe>ah, there we are, thank you :)
18:26<Eddi|zuHause>TTRS towns tend to be bigger (afair, haven't used that in a long time, as the towns look also uglier)
18:28<KittenKoder>If you want the boundaries to grow, use town GRFs like Swedish houses and UK houses, there are no huge buildings so the towns spread out more to.

18:35<Eddi|zuHause>there's a more exact number, but i don't remember it
18:35<Eddi|zuHause>must be somewhere in the wiki or the forum
18:36<aditsu>is it related to e.g. maximum coal mine production?
