02:35<@planetmaker>hi pikka
02:35<pikka>hello planetmaker
02:36<pikka>wie gehrts
02:36<@planetmaker>och, ganz gut. Und selbst? :-)
02:37<pikka>bored at work. pretty much the only time I come on here... D;
02:37<@planetmaker>don't sprite and drive! ;-)
02:38<pikka>I'm obviously not actually driving at the minute. :p
02:38<@planetmaker>hehe :-)
02:39<@planetmaker>Something I wondered about the other but didn't follow up whatsoever: do you still have sprites for water planes?
02:39<pikka>did you see my feature request on flysp? :D
02:39<pikka>yes I do
02:39<@planetmaker>iirc it should or could be feasible to already modify an existing airport such that it becomes a water airport
02:40<@planetmaker>uhm, no, not that I remember that FS task, but... :-)
02:40-!-DDR [~DDR@] has joined #openttd
02:40<pikka>there will be two water planes in av8 2.0, in fact
02:40<@planetmaker>planes so far could not distinguish it, yes, but... might be nice for those who know where to send which plan :-)
02:40<@planetmaker>which FS task?
02:40<pikka>one added today
02:40<pikka>something about inflation...
02:41<@planetmaker>no, hadn't seen it
02:41<@planetmaker>sounds feasible to me
02:42<@planetmaker>but it'd need others to (also) agree
02:42<@planetmaker>which are all still asleep :-P
02:42<@planetmaker>8:40 on Saturday ;-)
02:42<pikka>lazy people. :)
02:43-!-Mucht [] has joined #openttd
02:43<pikka>well, Saturday is Monday for me
02:44<pikka>two rather underdressed young lasses just asked if I was their bus, and sadly I wasn't. :)
02:46<@planetmaker>"underdressed". Nice word :-)
02:46*planetmaker wonders how pikka looks like with 4 wheels etc... a nephew of thomas the tank engine? ;-)
02:47<pikka>ok, if my bus was their bus.
02:47<pikka>and it has 6 wheels!
02:47<@planetmaker>scnr ... hehe :-)
02:48<@planetmaker>but so it's not an articulated bus :-)
02:48<pikka>it has two axles but 6 wheels
02:48<pikka>there are 4 wheels on the rear axle
02:50<@planetmaker>yeah, most busses here (of those which are not articulated), have also 6 :-)
02:50<pikka> to be precise
02:51<@planetmaker>looks very familiar except for the colouring :-)
02:51<pikka>we also have tag buses, which have 8 wheels on 3 axles, and artics which have 10 wheels on 3 axles. :)
02:53<@planetmaker>hm... :-) 8 wheels on 3 axis only?
02:54<pikka>steering axle at front with 2, drive axle with 4, another steering with 2. :)
02:55<@planetmaker>I wonder whether I've seen such bus already. Maybe I just don't recall
02:55<@planetmaker>and our local traffic company has no vehicle images :S
02:55<@planetmaker>except for the old trams which one can rent:
02:56<pikka>ok! time to go! :o
02:56<@planetmaker>enjoy, pikka! :-)

07:18<@planetmaker>the difference between empty and full mouth?
07:20<@peter1138>our gui scaling sucks :p

07:20<@peter1138>way better than it wa
07:20<@peter1138>but i'm trying to improve it :D
07:21<@planetmaker>it still has many rough edges, esp. when used with bigGUI grf

08:58<andythenorth>seulement anglais ici?
08:59<Pikka>innit though?
08:59*andythenorth is pondering more lego trains, with more motors
08:59<andythenorth>I had put them all away, but now the toddler likes them
09:00<andythenorth>his opinion is that 'more wagons is better'
09:00<andythenorth>rv-wagons? :P :| :( :D
09:01<@Terkhen>andythenorth: currently I'm reworking subsidies
09:01<andythenorth>that won't help get big trucks into the game, but well done :)
09:03-!-mikethete1 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:03-!-mikethete [] has joined #openttd
09:04<@Terkhen>rv-wagons feels like too complex for what we would get
09:05<Pikka>I've seen some interesting trucks in the city recently
09:06<Pikka>they're refurbishing one of the skyscrapers, which includes taking apart a massive concrete raised garden outside the front of it
09:06<andythenorth>Terkhen: how about handling it via an improved system for refits instead?
09:06<andythenorth>refitting to a certain length isn't optimal, but it's not bad
09:06<@Terkhen>improved how?
09:06<@Terkhen>to solve the autorenew/autoreplace issue?
09:07<andythenorth>among other things
09:07<andythenorth>also the length of the menu
09:07<andythenorth>lets say I have a truck that has 1-4 trailers
09:07<@Terkhen>length should be fixed IIRC
09:07<andythenorth>and 31 cargos in the game
09:07<Eddi|zuHause> <-- i want RV wagons :)
09:08<Kogut>@Terkhen What will be changed?
09:09<andythenorth>that means maybe 124 menu entries :
09:09<@Alberth>Kogut: nobody knows
09:09-!-mikethete1 [] has joined #openttd
09:09<@Alberth>Eddi|zuHause: do it the other way around, and you have them :)
09:10<Eddi|zuHause> <- "what is wrong with this picture" :p
09:10<andythenorth>in a pathological case, I could also allow livery refits....
09:10<andythenorth>for 1CC and 2CC
09:11<andythenorth>so 248 menu entries...
09:11<@Terkhen>andythenorth: do you mean entries in the refit menu?
09:11<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: the only thing wrong with that picture is that I don't have the lego parts to build that engine yet
09:11<Eddi|zuHause>well... split the refit gui
09:11<@Alberth>Eddi|zuHause: movable tracks? :p
09:11<@Terkhen>the split refit gui would solve that

09:18-!-KenjiE20 [] has joined #openttd
09:19<andythenorth>Terkhen: was the interaction between partial refit and cargo subtypes really horrible to deal with? I just tried to figure it out...
09:20<@Terkhen>I'm not sure what you mean
09:20<@Terkhen>partial refit had a problem with articulated vehicles
09:21<andythenorth>that's what I mean
09:22<@Terkhen>the problem is that NewGRF vehicles do not expect their articulated parts to have different cargos or cargo subtypes
09:23<@Terkhen>I don't remember the details, frosch123 explained the problem to me and IIRC it is in the thread too
09:23<andythenorth>that's what I was trying to puzzle out
09:24<andythenorth>I am bored of waiting for a truck set and thinking I should start one soon
09:24<andythenorth>but without rv-wagons or better refits, truck sets suck
09:27<@Terkhen>refitting articulated parts separatedly can't happen without (IIRC) big changes to the specs, so it is not going to happen

10:05<Elukka>i went exploring some abandoned industrial spurs today
10:06<Elukka>somehow it's a mix of finnish, british, and maybe belgian rail
10:06<Elukka>some of it pretty old
10:06<Eddi|zuHause>i think i'm getting crazy...
10:06<Eddi|zuHause>i'm changing code
10:07<Eddi|zuHause>but whatever i try, it always behaves the same way it did before...
10:09<Eddi|zuHause>that typically means i'm changing the wrong line...
10:18<@Alberth>or a file in the wrong copy :)
10:20<Eddi|zuHause>anyway, i now have the right sprite in the purchase menu ;)
10:21<@planetmaker>great :-)
10:23<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: i still have problems with dependencies not honoured properly
10:24<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: the only thing that works is changing
10:24<Pikka>glad you like it, andy
10:24<@planetmaker>you're doing something entirely different than me.
10:24<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: but neither any of the pnml file nor any other py file
10:24<@planetmaker>i.e it works as it should when I touch a pnml file
10:25<@planetmaker>the other py files... are probably not added anywhere to the deps
10:25<@planetmaker>they're customly added and need of course adding to deps separately
10:25-!-mikethete [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:25<Eddi|zuHause>hm, ok
10:25<@planetmaker>that is not nor can be made automatic
10:25-!-KritiK [] has joined #openttd
10:25<@planetmaker> could contain that dep(s)
10:26<@planetmaker>lines like that will add the dependency
10:26<@planetmaker>if it is not given already by a rule itself
10:28*planetmaker looks
10:29<Eddi|zuHause>so i put this line in there:
10:29<Eddi|zuHause>scripts/ scripts/ scripts/ scripts/
10:29<Eddi|zuHause>or better:
10:29<@planetmaker>if needs changing when one of the three changes: yes
10:29<Eddi|zuHause>scripts/ scripts/*.py
10:29<@planetmaker>that's invalid
10:30<Eddi|zuHause>generate needs re-executing when any of these files change
10:30<Eddi|zuHause>they're submodules
10:30<@planetmaker>but then the *result_file* of should depend on the other *.py
10:30<@planetmaker>as would otherwise be re-build.
10:30<Eddi|zuHause>but that means duplicating
10:31<Eddi|zuHause>can i put like
10:31<@planetmaker>which file is generated by
10:31<Eddi|zuHause>GENERATE=scripts/ scripts/ scripts/ scripts/
10:31<@planetmaker>or files
10:31<Eddi|zuHause>and then replace other occurances of scripts/ by $GENERATE
10:32<Eddi|zuHause>it currently appears twice
10:32<@planetmaker>$(GENERATE) != $GENERATE
10:32<@planetmaker>you want $(GENERATE)
10:32<@planetmaker>but yes, you can do that
10:32<Eddi|zuHause>for engines.gnml and for *.lng
10:33<@planetmaker>I'll run a few more tests
10:34-!-Elukka [] has quit []
10:35<Eddi|zuHause>ok, i'll commit this then
10:36-!-mikethete [] has joined #openttd
10:39<@planetmaker>I'm not sure whether the 3rd occurance of which you ommited shouldn't be removed completely
10:40<Eddi|zuHause>hm, yeah, that looks redundant
10:40<Eddi|zuHause>so redundant that i didn't even see it
10:40<@planetmaker>hide it in another commit ;-)

11:17*andythenorth needs some help figuring out trucks and refits
11:17<andythenorth>is there a gameplay case that partial refitting of RVs would be useful?
11:18<andythenorth>e.g. truck with two trailers, one liverstock, one milk?
11:18<andythenorth>what's the case? Is it really essential?
11:18<supermop>generic box truck carrying various goods/supplies
11:18<andythenorth>(as it's not possible...probably )
11:18*ZirconiumX agrees - but has not got the faintest idea what he's on about
11:19<supermop>just cute for little city vans and trucks
11:19<supermop>passenger car carrying one engineering supply in the trunk
11:19<supermop>and four miners up front
11:20<andythenorth>that's strictly two cargos on one vehicle.
11:20<andythenorth>not going to happen :)
11:20-!-ZirconiumX [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
11:21<supermop>my subaru had a shadow
11:23<supermop>why do you bring it up, andy?
11:23<@Terkhen>because of rv-wagons
11:23<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: the cases where i usually need that are e.g transferring from seaport to factory
11:24<Eddi|zuHause>supermop: putting passengers and ENSP into one (articulated) vehicle is actually pretty easy
11:25<Eddi|zuHause>the two articulated parts must have distinct cargo refit lists
11:25<supermop>like a little blue impreza?
11:26<Eddi|zuHause>like an ET87 with two passenger steering cars and an engine with mail compartment
11:28<supermop>if its possible might as well do it, but i am not sure how much i would need it apart from the novelty factor
11:29<Eddi|zuHause>the ET87 in CETS can carry 100 passengers and 20 mail/10 goods/5 food
11:30<Eddi|zuHause>the 100 passengers stays constant during refitting, and mai/goods/food you can refit freely
11:30<Eddi|zuHause>(also alcohol, milk and fruit)
11:31<supermop>so i was playing with aircraft last night, for the first time since tto
11:31<supermop>i was losing one every 3 trips about
11:31<supermop>and that is small planes at large airports
11:31<@planetmaker>don't send the big ones to a small airport
11:32<supermop>see above
11:32<appe> <-
11:32<supermop>i was using pikkas set, and sticking to only the planes that said 'small' as i had very low passenger volume
11:32<Eddi|zuHause>you can turn off crashes
11:34<supermop>i changed the thing in the cheat menu but it did not seem to help
11:34<Eddi|zuHause>no, not that one
11:35<Eddi|zuHause>there's another setting for "regular" crashes
11:35<supermop>in advanced settings?
11:36<supermop>ok il take a look when i get home

11:44-!-Brianetta [] has quit [Quit: Tschüß]
11:44-!-LordAro [] has joined #openttd
11:45<openot>i want to play with ai and use some advanced cargo routes
11:45<openot>so i need tip
11:46<Eddi|zuHause>openot: and we're supposed to guess the question?
11:48<openot>it's like that i can download from online content so i can start playing like beginner?
11:48-!-Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:49<Kogut>most ais are not very impressive
11:49<openot>like i download game 10 min ago, found i need select some ai, some newgrf for more interesting routines and so on
11:50<openot>but there are tons of everything in online to download
11:50<Kogut>you can try game or two without newgrfs
11:50<Eddi|zuHause>AIs are automatically used after downloading, GRFs you have to activate after downloading in the NewGRF settings (but not all at once!)
11:51<Eddi|zuHause>many GRFs make stuff more complicated, so they're probably not suited for a beginner
11:51<Kogut>especially train/industry newgrfs
11:52<openot>maybe i can use some scenario for beginners and it's will contain grf and ai by itself?
11:52<@Alberth>hi LordAro
11:52<@Alberth>openot: I don't think there is much specially aimed at beginners
11:53<@Alberth>openot: Did you play TTD in the past, as most beginners are fine with playing without additions.
11:53<@planetmaker>openot: just take a random AI and a random map and you should be good
11:54<openot>ok, what AI is good to play with (by your opinion)?
11:54<@Alberth>depends on what you expectations from it. Personally, I always play without opponents
11:55<@Alberth>SimpleAI aims to mimic the old AI, there are also competitive AIs. There is a list of AIs at the wiki somewhere
11:55<Kogut>I suggest NoCab or AdmiralAI
11:55<LordAro>hi Alberth
11:56<openot>ok thanks
11:56<Eddi|zuHause>openot: just take all AIs, and let the game randomly choose them
11:57<openot>oh, it's better with wiki :)
11:57*Alberth wonders how to do such a thing with NewGRFs as well :p
11:57<@Alberth>openot: yep, there is much information there
11:58<@planetmaker>Alberth: via presets
11:58<@Alberth>"let the game randomly choose them"? :p
11:58<@planetmaker>though presets currently have one big backdraw: they store the version of the newgrfs. which usually is not what I want
12:01<@Alberth>we need newgrf dependency resolving, so I can load a newgrf and it automagically loads other ones that i need and like
12:03<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: there are two problems with your suggestion for the two-part articulated RV solution
12:03<andythenorth>1. partial refit won't work, that's not bad in the case where lead vehicle is PAX-only, but fails for other cases
12:04<andythenorth>2. can't use drive-into roadstops
12:04<andythenorth>I am trying to figure out which would be the most sane route of these 3, for a truck set
12:05<andythenorth>1. code it as per current spec allows, with each truck just having one trailer, or a fixed number, or very limited refits (like HEQS trams)
12:05<andythenorth>2. rv-wagons
12:05<andythenorth>3. don't do it
12:06<@Alberth>4. use lego instead
12:07<andythenorth>it's frustrating but totally resolvable
12:07<andythenorth>rv-wagons would entirely solve it
12:07<andythenorth>or a careful implementation using refits would be workable, with a few nasty pitfalls
12:08<andythenorth>a nasty case is trucks that carry cargo and can haul trailers
12:09<andythenorth>it's desirable to be able to route them to drive-into stops
12:09<andythenorth>perhaps that's what needs to be dropped
12:10<andythenorth>who uses drive-into stations? For example, with HEQS, does anyone rely on routing the Mogs to those stops?
12:10<supermop>ive been using them lately actually
12:10<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: offer the truck separately with trailer and without?
12:11<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: that's not horrible, but not at all nice
12:11<andythenorth>it makes the buy menu suck
12:11<andythenorth>I like egrvts, but the buy menu is way overcrowded
12:11<openot>sorry, am i right, using ECS Basic(and other) vectors i'll get more advanced industries?
12:11<Eddi|zuHause>openot: yes, but they are very difficult

12:19<andythenorth>I'll find a link

12:20<andythenorth>oh yes
12:20<andythenorth>how sad
12:22<@planetmaker>damn new technology ;-)
12:22<andythenorth>should do it Chrome style
12:22<andythenorth>no 'stable'
12:22<andythenorth>well kind of

12:22<andythenorth>everybody compiles about 1 week behind trunk
12:23<andythenorth>except for critical security failures

12:25<andythenorth>"The idea was to give people a blank window with an autoupdater. If they installed that, over time the blank window would grow into a browser"
12:25<Eddi|zuHause>there have been several CVEs
12:27<@planetmaker>sure. But not all qualify as "take over the computer remotely"
12:31<Ammler>andythenorth: you like how chrome does it?
12:32<andythenorth>Ammler: I have no idea
12:32<andythenorth>I have chrome
12:32<andythenorth>I don't notice it doing anything
12:34<Ammler>might be a good way for a single user system
12:40<Eddi|zuHause>we should separate the game engine from the gui, and in multiplayer synchronize it like newgrfs
12:40<Ammler>what I hate on chrome was that it tells me how to browse the internet, I need to be able to rule that myself, so chrome survived around 5 mins on my pc
12:41*andythenorth didn't notice
12:41<andythenorth>chrome is my minor browser
12:41<andythenorth>it's basically a GUI client for google docs and twitter
12:41<andythenorth>I don't browse with it
12:41<Eddi|zuHause>(that may also facilitate ingame update)
12:41<Ammler>ah ok
12:42<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: is it realistic to separate game and gui?
12:42-!-Mucht [] has joined #openttd
12:43<Ammler>well, openttd would also need to be able to connect with different versions
12:43<@Alberth>with separation you only have one game engine :)
12:43<Ammler>else you will have a big mess with autoupdate and multiplayer
12:43<supermop>which is your major browser?
12:44<andythenorth>supermop: safari, which is stupid
12:44<andythenorth>it memory leaks nearly as bad as ff
12:44<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: no, why? you'll have multiple game engines in downloaded_content, and if none of those matches the server you are joining, you download another
12:45<supermop>i use opera, but i think just out of iconoclasm
12:45<openot>FIRS looks like fun!
12:45<Ammler>Eddi|zuHause: well, what would be the engine? Current openttd binary?
12:46<Ammler>so you need to download 3MB almost everytime you join a server
12:46<Ammler>because it most probably has a nother version
12:47<Eddi|zuHause>i'm not seeing the problem
12:48<Eddi|zuHause>might want to introduce some kind of delta to the latest stable
12:49<Ammler>there would still be something like a "latest stable"?
12:50<Eddi|zuHause>if only to mark a reference point for the deltas
12:52<@Alberth>my package manager computes and downloads binary deltas all by itself already
12:52<Ammler>I disabled that here
12:53<Ammler>I think, it is faster to download teh whole package than applying deltas ;-)

15:11<b_jonas>they do, here :-)
15:14<supermop_>park on the tarmac
15:22<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: how do we want to handle company-specific livery?
15:22<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: e.g. take the E94, after 1950, there are 3 different liveries to choose from: DB (green, black wheels), DR (green, red wheels) and ÖBB (red, black wheels)
15:22<@planetmaker>I assume a simple recolour won't do for the many different companies?
15:23<Eddi|zuHause>i'd assume separate images
15:23<@planetmaker>as the pattern would have to differ
15:23<@planetmaker>so, ^^ that's with the different patterns the colouring would have to have the only option
15:23<Eddi|zuHause>but i need some way to technically distinguish that for different parameter settings
15:24<@planetmaker>uhm... how do you mean?
15:24<Eddi|zuHause>i mean the varaction2 check
15:24<Eddi|zuHause>for when someone has "mix", "core DB", "core ALL" or stuff selected
15:25<@planetmaker>what livery would an engine get if "core all" is selected and it could have DB or DR livery concurrently?
15:25<Eddi|zuHause>for example
15:25<Eddi|zuHause>DB trumps all?
15:26<@planetmaker>livery refit?
15:26<@planetmaker>with initial random selection?
15:26<Eddi|zuHause>livery refit is tricky for engines
15:26<@planetmaker>yes... :S
15:26<@planetmaker>then random
15:27<@planetmaker>otherwise one could have selected a branch
15:28<@planetmaker>alternatively one could introduce yet another parameter. But I'm not sure I'd like that
15:28<@planetmaker>like "preferred livery"
15:28<Eddi|zuHause>hm. so in the tracking table we write like "epoch3:(DB:img1,DR:img2,ÖBB:img3)", and depending on parameter we make different switches
15:29<@planetmaker>sounds like the way to go
15:30<Eddi|zuHause>i think i can work with that...
15:30<@planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause: how are livery changes not by epoch but by date handled?
15:31<@planetmaker>i.e. the re-colouring of IR to IC or so
15:31<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: currently i have put date_of_last_service, but we could introduce a parameter for "recolour liveries: {immediately, on service, on purchase}
15:31<@planetmaker>or do we just move that to epoch changes?
15:32<@planetmaker>ah. yes, good. date_of_last_service is excellent
15:32<@planetmaker>more parameters there are for later to keep people happy then
15:33<Eddi|zuHause>it just won't be possible to recolour anything before 1920
15:33<@planetmaker>and far in the future
15:33<@planetmaker>I thought of adding a new var which counts from 0
15:33<@planetmaker>as this 1920 base kinda sucks in this respect
15:34<@planetmaker>I guess I should actually write that patch :-P
15:34<Eddi|zuHause>i haven't found any reason yet why before 1920 is needed, but go ahead :)
15:35<@planetmaker>prussia, saxony or so?
15:35<@planetmaker>but it also fails for games which last long
15:35<@planetmaker>though this concept to automatically change on service for this time interval is also ok. indeed
15:35-!-TWerkhoven[l] [] has joined #openttd
15:36<Eddi|zuHause>as long as nml can transparently detect by context, whether date() macros have to expand to 1920-based or 0-based, i'm fine with it

16:05<andythenorth>why is egrvts weird?
16:05<supermop_>i like it
16:06<andythenorth>I ask so I can avoid 'weird'
16:06<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: for example it doesn't allow me to turn on "only horse-drawn vehicles" or "only trucks"

16:07<andythenorth>but because it's 'generic', it does feel 'generic'
16:07<andythenorth>can't complain about that, it's what it says on the box :P
16:07<supermop_>i like the concept of 2-3 types of vehicle in each generation
16:07<Eddi|zuHause>i'd much rather prefer a "european truck set" based on real trucks
16:07<supermop_>i think that is something to strive for
16:10<andythenorth>world trucks is quite easy
16:10<andythenorth>I can figure out how to do world trucks, and allow segmentation into regions to suit the current game
16:11<supermop_>didn't you start a truck set a couple years ago?
16:11<Eddi|zuHause>the "progress" on this page doesn't look promising at all:
16:11<andythenorth>I have the name :P
16:11<andythenorth>what I can't figure out is how to make building trucks a good experience
16:11<andythenorth>basically building RVs can suck. Building trains does not
16:11<supermop_>i think 2cc set is aiming to have regions
16:11<supermop_>id say dont over thing it, keep it simple
16:12<supermop_>no need to include every american semi release in 2008, etc
16:12<Eddi|zuHause>when basing on real trucks, you'll have lots of overlapping models with similar timeframe and similar stats
16:12<PeanutHorst>i wish i could model in blender
16:12<supermop_>stick to the egrvts model, for each era and region a few distinct types

16:15<supermop_>just have a couple cab types in each generation
16:15<andythenorth>for US trucks, the outline hasn't changed since about 1950
16:15<supermop_>well they are more streamlined - sleeper cabs etc
16:15<supermop_>but at tt scale
16:15<andythenorth>a little yes
16:15<andythenorth>but at tt scale...
16:15<supermop_>not sure if it shows
16:15<Eddi|zuHause>i was once standing and a traffic light, and thought "WTF, japan?" when looking at the truck behind me, until i realized that it was mirrored and said "PL" and not "JP" :p
16:16<supermop_>we do have flush nosed cabs though
16:17<PeanutHorst>i'll flush YOUR nose
16:17<supermop_>just allow lots of vanity running lights on us cabs
16:17<andythenorth>flush nosed?
16:17<supermop_>flat, like a european or japanese truck
16:17<supermop_>and volvo makes non flat cabs that they sell in the US
16:18<andythenorth>we have conventionals in europe
16:18<andythenorth>volvo took over white and freightliner iirc
16:18<supermop_>volvo being quite popular here with drivers
16:18<supermop_>freightliner is still a brand
16:18<supermop_>US drivers typically own their cabs
16:18<andythenorth>russian trucks
16:18<supermop_>companies own the trailers
16:19<supermop_>so US style cabs could have random color?
16:21<andythenorth>2CC I would think
16:22<supermop_>but no need to include different brands
16:22<andythenorth>I'll do them like HEQS - made up names

17:36<valhallasw>that has a disadvantage though...
17:36<valhallasw>the value of a is retrieved at time of execution

21:45<Monarch1st>i've got a couple questions if there's anyone here...
21:46<Monarch1st>after loading, a red box pops up that says enable multiple newgrf engine sets - how do i do that?
21:48<Monarch1st>and 2 - are there any engine sets, i guess, that extend further back? i'd like to play with engines around the time of the transcontinental railroad
21:48<Monarch1st>(or even further really but this for now)
21:49<Monarch1st>(say 1830 for the first intercity rail line)
22:11<lugo>there's an advanced setting for that
22:11<lugo>NARS2 starts about 1850 or so
22:18<Monarch1st>(ah, someone!)
22:18<Monarch1st>nars2 - is it in newgrf? i dont remember seeing it
22:20<lugo>yep should be avaulable through online content
22:21<Monarch1st>i dont see a nars2 - is the name expanded in the list perhaps?
22:22<Monarch1st>ah ha - i see a nars1, and a narvw
22:23<Monarch1st>and its probably going to ask to 'enable multiple engine sets'
22:23<Monarch1st>how do i do that?
22:24<lugo>there's an advanced setting for that
22:24<Monarch1st>where is it found?
22:25<lugo>can't remember, there are so many..
22:26<Monarch1st>yeah, i know. hundreds at least
22:32<Monarch1st>ahhh...that might be it
22:33<Monarch1st>nother question if you dont mind - how do you add newgrf files to a savegame?
22:34<Monarch1st>it doesnt look like you can, at least its not obvious in the newgrf settings
22:35<Monarch1st>but i like this map. is there a way to find the seed so i can generate it again?

23:02<Monarch1st>i dont think theres anyone else here, at least not that reads it.
23:02<Monarch1st>and i dont know much about new servers
23:02<Monarch1st>do you know some about the newgrf files?
23:04<Monarch1st>let me ask just in case...
23:05<Monarch1st>can do you add newgrf files to a savegame?
23:05<Monarch1st>it doesnt look like you can, at least its not obvious in the newgrf settings
23:05<Monarch1st>but i like this map. is there a way to find the seed so i can generate it again?
