04:52<llugo>from the wiki: The transportation of passengers between towns is necessary for the growth of a town in all climates.
04:53<llugo>a city also grows when only transporting pax within the city, doesnt it?
04:54<V453000>why dont you try in game :)
04:55<V453000>but the answer is: as long as you have 5 serviced stations in town center (grey area), the town will grow well
04:55<llugo>V453000: i'm at work
04:55<V453000>:D
04:55<V453000>then why do you study openttd when you are at work
04:55<Markk>I do that as well.
04:55<Markk>:/
04:55<norbert79>Same here
04:55<Markk>I occasionally play at work too.
04:56<V453000>:D
04:56<V453000>you have damn lucky jobs
04:56<norbert79>I don't, but I don't feel like a robot focusing on work only
04:56<norbert79>that's why I am here too
04:56<llugo>V453000: wasn't 5 just the maximum of stations to have influence, i mean 2 or 3 stations within a town doesn't let it grow?
04:56<V453000>it does
04:56<V453000>but slowly :)
04:57<V453000>just build a few bus stations in city center and it does wonders
04:58<V453000>if you seek some further information on how to actually make a city network, you might want to skim through this http://blog.openttdcoop.org/2010/06/13/advanced-building-revue-05-sbahns-and-city-networks/
05:05<llugo>*shudder* :P
05:09<norbert79>Making cities larger must be also something in control. At some points some cities/towns are not to be spread too much, and sometimes it's for the best leaving them grow fast
05:09<norbert79>depends on your goals
05:11<appe>i usually box them in with rails
05:12<appe>for some reason, they wont build past railways with 1 square distance signals
05:13<Markk>http://blog.openttdcoop.org/files/blog/V453000/orders_conditional.png
05:13<Markk>oh
05:13<Markk>I learned something new.
05:13<Markk>:D
05:13<Markk>V453000: Thanks alot for th elink!
05:13<norbert79>appe: http://norbert79.deviantart.com/gallery/26407951#/d2xmxcx - I think I have already showed this one, but basically this layout was the only possibility allowing more trains coming to this town, because of the growth some areas grew too large leaving less space for more stations left.
05:13<Markk>the link*
05:13<Markk>:D
05:13<norbert79>Markk: This doesn't make too much sense really...
05:14<norbert79>Markk: Why not using full load?
05:14<V453000>it does make a lot of sense :)
05:15<norbert79>V453000: Sure, but takes tons of more clicking, than saying going to point A, full load, then go to E, then B full load, then E again...
05:15<V453000>not really
05:15<V453000>you can use a huge group of trains servicing many stations
05:15<V453000>amount of clicking is about the same in the end
05:16<norbert79>V453000: Yet still the commands are being going through, still, trains would go to A, B,C,D, and not random, right?
05:16<norbert79>A-E, B-E, C-E...
05:16<V453000>no, not random :) but there are ways how to do it
05:16<appe>norbert79: that looks fantastic
05:16<norbert79>appe: Thank you
05:16<appe>norbert79: though, what use are the small stations?
05:16<appe>the one square ones
05:16<norbert79>passenger trains
05:16<V453000>if you do this http://blog.openttdcoop.org/files/blog/V453000/orders_sr.png then trains choose any station and try to load there
05:16<norbert79>wait
05:16<V453000>could be enhanced in many ways
05:17<norbert79>appe: The layout of the station has some eyecandy too. What is important is the first 6 lanes are for passengers, the 2 for cargo only
05:17<appe>oh, ok
05:18<appe>how does the small stations work with passenger trains?
05:18<norbert79>check 2nd checkpoint, see the 3 lanes there?
05:18<norbert79>Left is for exit only, 2 on the right for entry
05:18<V453000>http://blog.openttdcoop.org/files/blog/V453000/186_orders.png but if you need some even longer orders, make this for example :P
05:18<norbert79>so basically: entry, buffer zone of 2+1, and the station itself
05:19<norbert79>and a whole spereate track for cargo trains
05:19<V453000>actually we once had even 255 order train group for passenger city network :)
05:19<appe>neat
05:19<appe>i wish my systems could work like that
05:19<norbert79>V453000: Random primary? How is that to be selected?
05:19<V453000>what stops them? :)
05:19<appe>i have yet to discover pbs and more advanced route systems
05:19<norbert79>appe: Took me some while.
05:20<norbert79>appe: Also analyzed real networks too
05:20<V453000>norbert79: the primary you select, it is for one primary station, but you just copy the orders an ajust one
05:20<appe>norbert79: i love the enthusiasm.
05:20<norbert79>V453000: I still have some issues understanding how the logic works with advanced routing-tables...
05:21<norbert79>V453000: I even have an issue commanding one train which travels from A to B for accepting only 25% of the max cargo
05:21<norbert79>V453000: It just ignores it and picks up whatever is there
05:21<norbert79>and goes off
05:21<appe>since i started using ECS industries, i have made lots of progress in the 'as much trains on as few rails as possible' area, though signals keep getting on my nerves
05:21<V453000>it is possible to tell a train "load 25%" ?
05:21<appe>so far, circle networks is the only thing i (can) use.
05:22<norbert79>V453000: That should be the point with advanced routing, right? You can select cargo %
05:22<V453000>not at all
05:22<V453000>why would you do that
05:22<V453000>you want trains full
05:22<MNIM>no, you don't
05:22<appe>that depends
05:22<norbert79>V453000: Simply: not always, especially at start where I lack of money but want to keep high interest rates
05:22<MNIM>you have four pickup stations on one route which you want to service all equally
05:22<appe>let's say you have two neaby cities with 100 people waiting on each platform. with a 200 passenger train, loading 50% per station would be neat.
05:22<MNIM>that's where you want to specify %s
05:23<appe>and you would stabilize the growth of each city?
05:23<appe>i guess..
05:23<norbert79>appe: Here is a link to Hungarian rail-networks and drawings, if interested. http://allomasok.uw.hu/
05:23<appe>ah, thanks
05:23<appe>ill have a look
05:23<MNIM>otherwise you will service one too much and the other too little
05:23<V453000>no I dont because if I have 4 stations I want to service all equally then it means that I expect that all 4 stations have the same amount of cargo inflow which means I threw my brain away
05:23-!-TWerkhoven [~Turbulent@cpc14-linl7-2-0-cust28.sgyl.cable.virginmedia.com] has joined #openttd
05:24<norbert79>appe: Some words are in Hungarian, and you might have some issues translating, but in general it gives you an idea :)
05:24<norbert79>V453000: Interest rates need time, and just bloating a station with a train with 14 wagons, and attacking a coal mine with it where outpout is only 32 tons makes the whole a mess
05:25<norbert79>V453000: yet if I have the money, I will buy all 14, but don't want to wait for all them getting full
05:25<V453000>making trains with 14 wagons is questionable on its own
05:25<norbert79>V453000: and manual control isn't reliable
05:25<norbert79>V453000: Why?
05:26<V453000>because you would need all curves to be long at least 8 tiles to prevent trains from slowing down, trains wait at primaries for ages, all constructions become gigantic in compare with shorter trains
05:26<norbert79>V453000: I don't mind the need of slowing down
05:26<V453000>really?
05:26<norbert79>V453000: small trains do not make too much sense, long curves aren't realistic, or possible because of local needs
05:26<norbert79>yes
05:27<V453000>Why dont they make sense?
05:27<V453000>building _anything_ is easier with them
05:27<norbert79>because it's a waste of money then
05:27<V453000>since when is openttd about money
05:27<norbert79>Then I would simply use trucks
05:27<norbert79>Are you serious with this question? :)
05:27<V453000>after 1hour of play I have so much money that I cant even spen it
05:27<V453000>is it about money then?
05:28<norbert79>V453000: Doesn't seem you play often online, or challenge yourself on harder maps...
05:28<V453000>I dont play singleplayer ever :)
05:28<norbert79>V453000: Then your approach suprises me a lot...
05:28<norbert79>but everyone's it's own
05:29<V453000>well, tell me, what do you achieve by gaining -some- amount of money
05:29<V453000>in compare with what do you achieve by developing your style of how you play an making it better an better
05:29<V453000>I care about the lattter
05:29-!-Brianetta [~brian@188-220-91-30.zone11.bethere.co.uk] has joined #openttd
05:29<norbert79>And I don't care at all, since if I create a nice nertwork, achivements are coming on their own...
05:29<V453000>and trust me that in the end I make more money than you ever imagine
05:30-!-pugi [~pugi@dyndsl-091-096-053-121.ewe-ip-backbone.de] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:30<norbert79>So you are mainly for fasme and achivements... Being number 1... Being number 1 doesn't make automacially you the best network-creator
05:31<norbert79>My goal is the network
05:31<V453000>uhm
05:31<norbert79>in equilibirum with the needs of all towns
05:31<V453000>how could your goal be the network when you care about the money
05:31<norbert79>Are you serious with these questions?
05:31<MNIM>Hmmmh. this makes me wonder
05:31<norbert79>Jesus
05:32-!-pugi [~pugi@dyndsl-091-096-053-126.ewe-ip-backbone.de] has joined #openttd
05:32<V453000>yes I am
05:32<norbert79>V453000: http://norbert79.deviantart.com/gallery/26407951 - Go and figure
05:32<V453000>because when I try to build something extremely complicated which demands hours to build and years to develop, I usually dont think about how much will it cost
05:32<norbert79>I still have the feeling you are explcitily trying not to understand
05:32<MNIM>when you've disabled towns building roads and you build 'em yourself, do you pay a lot for the maintenance of those town roads?
05:32<V453000>yes I saw that, why
05:33<V453000>MNIM: likely so
05:33<norbert79>MNIM: Unfortunetally no, but I would be happy having that included in the game... Sorta Simcity method
05:33<@peter1138>there's no maintenance costs
05:33<V453000>oh :)
05:33<norbert79>MNIM: Same goes for every track/line/airport/etc
05:34<norbert79>MNIM: I would be happy having the need of thinking about that
05:34<MNIM>oh.
05:34<MNIM>well, the main reason I ask is because Ive been avoiding building company roads for towns as much as possible because of that
05:34<norbert79>MNIM: I prefer that method, so I can also control the growth a bit too
05:34<MNIM>exactly, me too
05:35<V453000>it is never a good idea to let the towns control it themselves :)
05:35<norbert79>http://norbert79.deviantart.com/gallery/26407951#/d2xmxui - Example of my controlled growth
05:35-!-TWerkhoven [~Turbulent@cpc14-linl7-2-0-cust28.sgyl.cable.virginmedia.com] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:35<norbert79>V453000: I again disagree. Since at the start you are depending on them
05:35<norbert79>V453000: and if they say no-no to a station, you are hung
05:35<V453000>what?
05:35<norbert79>V453000: So the only option is to allow it grow
05:36<V453000>well of course, allow, but not let it build roads
05:36<MNIM>anyway, I would applaud having to pay maintenance costs for roads, rails and other infra, it'd be nice to have town take over those costs as soon as it's within the city
05:36<MNIM>at least the roads
05:36<norbert79>MNIM: Aye, I agree too
05:36<norbert79>MNIM: and to make it even more evil: each town/city would have it's own maintanence tax.. :))
05:36<V453000>so you would have 10 000 per year less .. what a disaster when you make 10M on trains?
05:37<norbert79>MNIM: so smaller towns would ask for less money for maintenence, since being even happy having the roads
05:37<MNIM>well, Im not thinking about tens of thousands
05:37<V453000>the point still stands
05:37<norbert79>V453000: Well, the more tracks/lines the more maintenence, so it won't be just 10.000... Trust me on the larger scale that would matter a lot
05:38<MNIM>but yeah, by the 1960-s (starting in 1900) I have about 10-20m pure profit, which I instantly spend on funding cities and industries
05:38<norbert79>V453000: If you ever have played Simcity, you would know :)
05:38-!-pjpe [ade6a119@ircip4.mibbit.com] has quit [Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client]
05:38<MNIM>I know I have
05:38<MNIM>and still do sometimes :P
05:38<norbert79>MNIM: Was sent for V453000 :)
05:38<norbert79>MNIM: I know, that you have played it
05:38<norbert79>MNIM: Otherwise you would never mention the possibility
05:39<V453000>no I havent played sim city and I dont think it is anyhow similar to the possibilities that openttd offers
05:39<norbert79>V453000: Think again... :)
05:39<norbert79>V453000: Try it...
05:39<norbert79>V453000: Doesn't hurt... You could even start with Simcity 2000
05:39<norbert79>V453000: That would be a start
05:40<V453000>no I dont care about some stupid sim city ... I am just thinking how exactly do maintenance costs influence your network. The only point I see is that it would make you need more trains on a track, which might get interesting
05:40<appe>guys, how do i use the ECS industry grf's + the standard at the same time?
05:40<MNIM>sim city does not have individual vehicle management, true, but infra management is a monster to reckon with in SC
05:40<norbert79>V453000: hehhe, calling Simcity a stupid game doesn't make you look wiser. :) Sure, it influences a LOT
05:40<MNIM>in fact, it's the biggest challenge of the whole game.
05:40<appe>sim city is a worthless game.
05:41<norbert79>Guys, seriuosly?
05:41<norbert79>Come on.,. Guess you always just got bankrupt
05:41<V453000>who cares about sim city, we are talking about openttd
05:41-!-Progman [~progman@p57A19D93.dip.t-dialin.net] has joined #openttd
05:41<norbert79>otherwise you would never say something like that
05:41<appe>word.
05:41<appe>:D
05:42<norbert79>MNIM and myself do speak about Simcity..
05:42<norbert79>and it indeed has ideas which would have it's right place in OpenTTD too
05:42<norbert79>like you have maintenance costs for trains, why not for lines/tracks too? :)
05:44<appe>that's true.
05:44<@peter1138>i think someone did a patch for it
05:44<@peter1138>many moons ago
05:44<norbert79>peter1138: Why did it never got into core?
05:44<appe>that would encourage perfecting rails
05:44<norbert79>appe: Aye
05:44<appe>though, i guess it should be abled as an option, if added to core
05:45<norbert79>appe: Sure
05:45<appe>id like that
05:45<appe>id really like that
05:45<TinoDidriksen>You get such a huge profit anyway. A lot of extra costs need to be added before it would make a noticable dent...
05:45<norbert79>appe: But having that turned on would be the real fun :)
05:45<norbert79>TinoDidriksen: Depends on the advanced settings...
05:45<norbert79>TinoDidriksen: The game can be already set to a difficulty, where you cannot just get that ammount of money quick
05:46<norbert79>TinoDidriksen: One more factor would just extend the challenge
05:46<appe>TinoDidriksen: true. though, let's say you are playing a big map. we "newbies" tend to just leave unused railway empty. if a cost would be implied, the scale would (or could) significly hurt.
05:46<norbert79>appe: Especially when those lanes are to be hard acessed
05:46<norbert79>appe: Like in the middle of nowhere
05:46<norbert79>appe: where there are no cities/towns nearby
05:47<appe>yeah
05:47<appe>make patch
05:47<appe>naow
05:47<appe>and gib me al yo moni
05:47<norbert79>lol, wish I could :)
05:47<norbert79>but I guess this would take much longer, than for anyone else :)
05:47<norbert79>I couldn't even start a GRF well... got stuck at the first building... Lost interest, because of other priorities
05:48<@peter1138>of course you could
05:48<appe>what id like would be an advanced setting to rail costs
05:48<appe>"none, normal, realistic"
05:48<@peter1138>road costs
05:48<appe>sure
05:48<@peter1138>canal costs
05:49<@peter1138>flightpath costs ;)
05:49<V453000>I think japanese train set increases rail upkeep costs
05:49<appe>sign costs
05:49<appe>:D
05:49<norbert79>costs=maintenance costs
05:49<norbert79>Since you already pay it once when building it
05:49<appe>for instance
05:49<appe>a meter would be nice
05:49<@peter1138>V453000, what rail upkeep costs?
05:49<appe>"you have x kilometers of railway = gazillions of dollars in cost"
05:49<norbert79>and if the specific object is far from any industrial or town area, the cost would be higher. that could be achived by zones
05:50<appe>speaking of zones
05:50<norbert79>Like with the station allownce areas
05:50<appe>i talked to this friend the other day. he works with intel, building schematics for cpus
05:50<norbert79>oh, I see where this is going appe :)
05:51<norbert79>network layouts, I guess
05:51<appe>i couldnt go into details (since i dont know much about neither cpus nor openttd), but in discussion he told me that zones would actually be the best - and only - decent alternative to a multicore ttd.
05:51<V453000> <norbert79> costs=maintenance costs <- absolutely not, when you pay a one-time-fee then you do not have to care about it at all. If you pay it periodically, you have to care if that line actually brings profit in total
05:51<appe>the bigger map, the more zones
05:51<appe>V453000: correct.
05:51<appe>V453000: that also sounds more fun.
05:51<norbert79>V453000: Ehm, what? Dude, train-tracks needed to be maintained
05:52<@peter1138>you're confusing "should" with "is"
05:53<norbert79>V453000: You have some very interesting views on how logistics work... It's not just like laying down a track, and that's it...
05:53<norbert79>V453000: Following your logic we could eliminate maintenance for trains too
05:53<appe>what if costs only applied to rails that are driven on?
05:53-!-Neon [~Neon@dslb-178-004-190-018.pools.arcor-ip.net] has joined #openttd
05:53<appe>that is, one time costs for every time a rail passes by.
05:53<norbert79>appe: everything has to be maintanend
05:54<norbert79>appe: Tracks, railways, tunnels, everything
05:54<appe>sure
05:54<appe>small, but in total big costs.
05:54<appe>i like the idea
05:54<V453000>as I said, making maintenance costs is a good thing whereas making tracks more expensive is stupid
05:54<V453000>or cant you read norbert79 ?
05:54<norbert79>appe: And if a certain time-age is being hit, and no maintenance is being done, the track would just disappear...
05:55<appe>norbert79: :<
05:55<norbert79>V453000: NuTracks method is kinda cool imo...
05:55<appe>i guess thats good. that last part is a setting id un-tick, though..
05:55<norbert79>V453000: I mean differntiating different tracks
05:55<V453000>that is something different though
05:55<norbert79>V453000: same goes for the trakcs/roads, etc
05:56<norbert79>V453000: Sure, but the poin t is what I am trying to make, that every type of track would have it'"s own maintenance costs, but that's depending how far those are from towns/cities
05:56<norbert79>V453000: you can quickly repair a track within a town
05:56<V453000>depending on how far from cities? why?
05:56<norbert79>but do the same with a track in the middle of nowhere
05:56<V453000>ok, realism
05:56<norbert79>yeah, just a bit
05:57<V453000>retarded
05:57<norbert79>pity you say so, especially in this language
05:57<norbert79>I wish you would have played Simcity...
05:58<V453000>well when you suggest solutions which have nothing related to gameplay and just adjust to be more "realistic", I have nothing to say than it is plain stupid
05:58<norbert79>and I so miss this feature from OpenTTD, especially from a game, where logistic is all about
05:58<V453000>yes, go play sim city, it is probably more realistic than openttd
05:58<norbert79>V453000: I doubt that your aggressive attitude would fit here, and it seems you are likely the one just rejecting an idea, and offending chatters here. I think you have some issues.
05:59<norbert79>V453000: I suggest you should back off.
05:59<V453000>I am just saying that your idea lacks gameplay impact and does not make sense in that way
05:59<V453000>why would you ever care how far your rails are from town
06:00<norbert79>V453000: No, you are just panically rejecting it even before even thinking it through...
06:00<V453000>okay..
06:00<V453000>so tell me
06:00<V453000>what effects does it have
06:00<V453000>I build rails close to cities as possible, very interesting
06:00<V453000>something else?
06:00<norbert79>No, not anymore, have spent enough time. No point talking this idea with you further... What I can't understand is, why you feel offended and behave such bad against anyone?
06:01<norbert79>I really would suggest for you calming down
06:01<V453000>I am only asking you for reasons why do you suggest such nonsense :)
06:01<V453000>nothing else
06:01<V453000>which you obviously lack
06:01<V453000>"it is realistic" is not a reason
06:01<norbert79>Sorry dude, not talking to you any further, you blew this one already

07:43<norbert79>michi_cc: Oh, well done!
07:43<norbert79>Sounds interesting...
07:43<norbert79>Is it based on a regular cost, or something more detailed?
07:44<+michi_cc>If you do test, remember to turn it on in the advanced settings. The company details window gives more detailed information on the maintenance costs.
07:45<norbert79>michi_cc: Sure, will try to take a look on it later! Will that work with recent stable (1.1.3) source code or m,ainly nightly only?

07:45<norbert79>Eddi|zuHause: Cheers
07:46<+michi_cc>Number of trackbits/roadbits etc times a constant that varies by rail/road/etc type, which means a linear cost right now. Some kind of power law would probably be even better, but for that somebody other than me has to test the current values first.
07:46<norbert79>michi_cc: I see, thank you for the explanation.

07:57<MNIM>ah, yeah.
07:58<MNIM>does it also take into count town roads?
07:59<norbert79>michi_cc: copying MNIM's question, does it take all types into consideration?
07:59<MNIM>it would be nice to have upon town growth have something check if a company-owned road now falls within a town zone and then change ownership
07:59<norbert79>MNIM: From backlog: <michi_cc> Number of trackbits/roadbits etc times a constant that varies by rail/road/etc type, which means a linear cost right now. Some kind of power law would probably be even better, but for that somebody other than me has to test the current values first.
08:00<norbert79>but it's great for a start
08:00<MNIM>or, if a road is past a certain age, void company ownership
08:00<+michi_cc>It doesn't change current ownership behaviour.
08:02<+michi_cc>Losing ownership of roads to a town would be a different patch that shoudn't be mixed.
08:03<norbert79>I would just go for the way of just losing the roads, like with age the roads would just hit a certain aging status, that they would just "fall apart"
08:03<Eddi|zuHause>it could be part of roadtypes. when a town decides to "upgrade" a road, it might change ownership
08:03<norbert79>what do you mean by 'upgrading", like placing concerete at it's side?
08:04<Eddi|zuHause>something like that
08:04<norbert79>hmm, but that does happen way too often, when giving a town money for new buildings
08:05<Eddi|zuHause>it's not a fully thought through feature :p
08:05<norbert79>Sure, I am also just imagning it :)
08:05<norbert79>Playing with "what-if" :)
08:07<MNIM>playing what if is the mother of all progress, isn't it?
08:07<Eddi|zuHause>norbert79: here are my previous thoughts about town roads vs. roadtypes: http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?p=878524#p878524
08:08<norbert79>Eddi|zuHause: I think Part 1 to part 3 can be done easy, NuTracks also has proven, that it is manageble
08:08<norbert79>manageble
08:10<norbert79>yet I would just use different roadtypes, not specify 'one way' roads... It's the materials matter, what they are coming from... Concrete is also missing
08:10<norbert79>I like Part 2
08:11<norbert79>Part 3... Well, agree partly, because we are the company owners, we are asked on building the connections between towns
08:12<Eddi|zuHause>part 3 is something similar to river generation
08:13<norbert79>Eddi|zuHause: Yet I think that should depend on the time-date the game starts. For example while a new game starts around 2010 you could imagine good connections, but around 1900 the roads should not be even there between towns
08:13<@Terkhen>maybe part 3 should take into account destinations; if many passengers want to travel between two towns, build a road between them to entice companies to establish new routes
08:13<norbert79>Terkhen: Good thinking
08:13<Eddi|zuHause>norbert79: i disagree. except motorways, most roads have existed for many centuries
08:14<norbert79>Eddi|zuHause: You as German can also remember, that the first motorway in germany appeard in 1934
08:14<norbert79>Eddi|zuHause: We all know the reason behind but still
08:14<Eddi|zuHause>norbert79: even then, the plans were already at least a decade old
08:14<norbert79>and in Hungary, there were no Motorways at all until the late 70's
08:15<Eddi|zuHause>norbert79: but this is not about motorways

08:15<norbert79>Eddi|zuHause: Sure, just wanted to point out an impoirtant point, yet this is also what I have mentioned. Even if there are roads between towns, they should be the gravel ones, or old dirt-tracks
08:16<norbert79>Eddi|zuHause: But not all the twons are connected to each other...
08:16<Eddi|zuHause>that can be adjusted by the roadtype grf
08:16<norbert79>Eddi|zuHause: Like ehwn two villages are connected, but only in one direction and one road only
08:16<MNIM>eddi: something like that, yes, though Id propose a slight increase in speed
08:17<MNIM>of course this should be adjustable by parameters.
08:17<Eddi|zuHause>anyway, the most problematic about part 3 is probably creating a steiner-tree between towns.
08:18<Eddi|zuHause>so 3 towns in a triangle do not neccessarily have 3 point-to-point roads, but instead they meet somewhere in the middle
08:19<norbert79>depends also on the culture... Hungariasn roads tended to be centralized and radius like, where the capital was the main centre, and roads started into all directions. And there is the grid method too
08:19<norbert79>Not always... sometimes they never meet at all
08:19<norbert79>but just are being connected to each other in series by one road
08:20<norbert79>depends also on the culture
08:20<norbert79>like take the desert scenario
08:20<norbert79>it's just mostly 1 road, which goes through several smaller towns
08:21<norbert79>if there is a road at all
08:21<@Terkhen>NewGRF road types -> use dirt roads :P

10:15<MNIM>none, really
10:16<norbert79>erik1984: Well, depends. On the network, ammount of stations, etc
10:16<norbert79>erik1984: I normally do the transformation between stations, starting with the least complicated ones
10:16<Eddi|zuHause>the best strategy is to not do it...
10:17<norbert79>erik1984: Sometimes I just send every train to the service stations, transform a section, rebuild trains
10:17<norbert79>Eddi|zuHause: Unless you are brave :)
10:17<norbert79>Eddi|zuHause: and love challenges
10:17<appe>norbert79: the first one is not even music. most people refer to it as audio art.
10:17<Eddi|zuHause>but if you really want to do it, use the universal railtype grf
10:17<appe>norbert79: the second one is something idm-ish, i guess.
10:17<norbert79>appe: I see
10:17<norbert79>appe: Well, interesting concept... Ever tried to put these into pictures?
10:19<norbert79>Hmm, might be interesting testing OpenTTD generic OpenTTD binaries under TinyCore Linux
10:19<appe>norbert79: pictures? movies? :>
10:20<erik1984>I have one big network so I can't (or it's hard to) convert individual parts without messing up traffic. So I do it all at once... just a lot of work especially because most trains have different orders. If they all have the same direction I could just build one maglev and clone it
10:20<norbert79>appe: I am thinking more about putting these musical experessions into more pictures... Not really a movie/recording, but more like a morphing picture-slideshow like
10:21<erik1984>On the other hand it could be worse, I don't have hundreds of trains.

10:52<Elukka>i really don't get america
10:53<Elukka>"hey wisconsin here's $800 million in federal funding for that high speed rail you probably want to build"
10:53<Elukka>and wisconsin goes "NO, WE DON'T WANT YOUR TRAINS OR YOUR MONEY"
10:55<Eddi|zuHause>well, it does make sense when you consider that federal funding (or withdrawal thereof) is the only real lever the federal government has over the individual state governments
10:55<Eddi|zuHause>like "if you lower legal drinking age we will cut your funding for motorways"
11:01-!-Kurimus [~stabbity@dsl-tkubrasgw3-fe93dd00-34.dhcp.inet.fi] has joined #openttd
11:02<Elukka>it's interesting that they'd have funding for high speed rail in several states, just everyone goes "nope"
11:03<Eddi|zuHause>nobody in the states goes by rail
11:03<Eddi|zuHause>except on commuter lines
11:03<Elukka>yeah because they barely have any passenger trains
11:03<Eddi|zuHause>every longer distance is done by planes
11:03<__ln__>Elukka: that's not entirely true either
11:04<Elukka>the northeast corridor is the one busy line
11:04<Eddi|zuHause>yeah, we went by train from new york to philadelphia
11:05<Eddi|zuHause>and we got stuck right outside philadelphia because of signal damage
11:06<__ln__>Elukka: it is possible to get from east to west by train, which is *a lot* of miles. so it's wrong to say they have "barely any" trains.
11:07<Elukka>it's possible to go from madrid to beijing by train, doesn't mean that route is used much
11:12<Eddi|zuHause>nobody suggested that
11:12<Eddi|zuHause>and nobody demands that either
11:13<__ln__>http://tickets.amtrak.com/secure/content/routeatlas/index.html
11:13<Eddi|zuHause>it's the medium distances that are supposed to be the strong suit for trains. like anything up to 1000km
11:13<__ln__>this 43-hour route from Chicago to Los Angeles could be interesting.
11:14<Eddi|zuHause>__ln__: or you could fly in 4 hours, for 1/10th of the price
11:15<Elukka>it's the regional flights that would make sense to replace with high speed rail for a bunch of reaosns
11:16<__ln__>Eddi|zuHause: actually, if you book in advance, it's as little as ~$160
11:16<Elukka>it'd have a good shot of being faster too due to all the post 9/11 crap at airports
11:17-!-Devroush [~dennis@ip-83-134-145-65.dsl.scarlet.be] has joined #openttd
11:17<Eddi|zuHause>Elukka: if trains in the US get any kind of market share, they'd get equally as much share of the 9/11 crap
11:18<Elukka>dunno
11:18<Elukka>they certainly haven't elsewhere
11:19<__ln__>Eddi|zuHause: besides, i've flown SFO-Washington D.C. sitting in the very middle seat of a B777, and i can't say it was very *interesting* as far as seeing out of the windows is concerned.
11:20<Eddi|zuHause>__ln__: you don't see anything out of an ICE window either, if it's enclosed within tunnels or noise-protection walls

11:23<Belugas>so... bottom line... drive your car and enjoy the scenery!
11:24<Elukka>drive your car, consume all the oil, destroy the environment :P
11:24<__ln__>the cars that i've driven didn't consume oil but gasoline
11:25<Elukka>and what do you think that is made of?
11:27<__ln__>it's not made of, it is purchased at gas stations obviously
11:27<Belugas>choose : enjoy the scenery and pollute, or scrutinize the tunnels-walls-wings
11:28<Elukka>yes, it's a natural resource that occurs within gas pumps
11:28<Belugas>or even better... ride a bycicle
11:28<Belugas>bicycle
11:28<Elukka>i do travel more by car than i'd like

11:32<MNIM>actually, most trains, at least in europe, are effective at far shorter distances.
11:32<MNIM>i, for an example, had to study in a dark and distant past.
11:32<MNIM>with bus and train, I was there within the hour. half hour bus ride, half hour train.
11:32<MNIM>with a car you'll need to factor in at least another half hour
11:34<__ln__>i doubt that's possible here even in optimal circumstances
11:36<MNIM>yeah, the NL is *the* most densely built country on the planet, so public transport has an advantage
11:37-!-TWerkhoven [~twerkhove@cpc14-linl7-2-0-cust28.sgyl.cable.virginmedia.com] has joined #openttd
11:39<__ln__>more like 20 mins by car, 60 minutes by public transport
11:39<planetmaker>MNIM: that's untrue, if you consider the land which actually is available to cultivation
11:40<Belugas>haaa... efficiency, speed, less time... where are the values like.. enjoying life, treasure the moment, capture the instant and make it yours...
11:40<Belugas>and give me a double coffee,please...
11:41<Elukka>when you're trying to get to work you want speed because you don't want to have to wake up at 6 am and get to home at 8 pm
11:43<Eddi|zuHause><__ln__> more like 20 mins by car, 60 minutes by public transport <-- that's pretty much my observation as well
11:43<Eddi|zuHause>as soon as you go outside the major cities, public transport is really inferior
11:43<__ln__>Belugas: spending less time on work/school trips directly helps one spend more time enjoying life
11:45<Belugas>well... you guyes were talking about long roads, 1000km and more...
11:45<Belugas>i use the bus to get to work, 45 minutes, while in car, due to rush hours, it would taek me at least 1.5 hour
11:55<MNIM>planetmaker: nope, not true.
11:55<MNIM>for an example, two thirds of this whole country was no land before it humans meddled with it.
11:59<MNIM>then, the 1/3rd that was there before, most of it is actually cultivated. what passes for 'nature' here is planted forest, dug-out creeks, artificially raised dunes, dug out peat areas. Our streams were first straightened with steam power, then made winding again with diesel power because straight streams contain less water than bendy ones.
12:01<MNIM>the one 'mountain' we have (321m) is less than half of what it used to be, we dig it's sides for building materials. the remaining half is tunneled so much you could hide city in it.
12:02<MNIM>in the netherlands you cannot get on a bike and disappear into a forest, only to find civilization again after having been lost for a whole day.
12:04<planetmaker>my point. Thus the inhabitable land in Japan is more densely populated
12:04<MNIM>most of our longer 'mountainbike trails' are 50% asphalt, since you can only put so much trail in a square mile of forest before you need to get on the road and drive another mile to find a new patch of trees.
12:05<MNIM>mweh, japan has more inhabitable land, true
12:06<planetmaker>in the Netherland everything is basically habitable
12:06<MNIM>well, apart from the water, yes
12:06<__ln__>what's wrong with water
12:07<MNIM>there are some pieces that would prove to be a nightmare to build on, though, as the ground can be incredibly soft and shifty
12:07<MNIM>__ln__: nothing. in fact, we build houses on it
12:12<Eddi|zuHause>Belugas: actually i said medium distance. something around 100-1000km
12:13<__ln__>Eddi|zuHause: that may not be medium in canada
12:13<MNIM> that's long range over here :P
12:15<Belugas>Eddi|zuHause, you have to agree it's a bit more than going-to-work distance ;)
12:16<Belugas>althoug, 100km is indeed not a medium distance, it's rather.. small
12:16<Belugas>half an hour?piece of cake :)
12:17<Eddi|zuHause>Belugas: but only if you average on 200km/h :)
12:17<Eddi|zuHause>from here to berlin is 160km
12:18<Eddi|zuHause>you usually calculate 2h on that trip
12:18<MNIM>depends on what train you got, really.
12:19<Belugas>oops.... right...
12:19<MNIM>dutch trains easily go 160, but they go short distances and spend a lot time accelerating and decelerating
12:19*Belugas should not do 3 things at the time...
12:20<MNIM>they're usually still faster than cars at those distances, especially during rush hour
