00:08<ohnoes>hello everyone
00:14<MagisterQuis>ohnoes: Hi.
00:16<ohnoes>I was trying to build my first tunnel on openttd but my train refuses to cross it. I am using signals before and past the tunnel's railway in the direction I want the train to follow but right just when it approaches the tunnel entrance it stops and then tries to go in the opposite direction (it stops and reverses almost right after that because of the one-way block signal I placed, and this loops forever)
00:18<ohnoes>does anyway know why this is happenning?
00:20<Aali>wrong railtype?
00:21<ohnoes>wrong tunnel type! that is probably the problem
00:22<ohnoes>solved!

00:46<ohnoes>by the way, is it normal that after a certain year trains of the most basic railtype (the one before electrified railtype) cannot be built anymore?
00:49<Elu>yeah, but you can turn off expiration dates somewhere in advanced settings

07:04<vb>hi
07:05<vb>how to start a game with newgrf settings applied?
07:05<@Yexo>apply newgrf settings from main menu, start new game
07:05<vb>i did so, i only had some industries
07:05<vb>but no trains
07:06<vb>even though the newgrf was applied
07:06<@Yexo>upload your savegame somewhere

07:08<vb>oh
07:08<vb>i think i know the issue
07:08<vb>i have ECS & FIRS original vehicle set, i think that is only for cargo
07:08<vb>to change it
07:08<vb>right?
07:08<@Yexo>no clue
07:08<@Yexo>if you want the default vehicles with refit options, try OpenGFX+
07:09<vb>i want new trains
07:09<@Yexo>in that case use a different trainset
07:09<@Yexo>every complete trainset I know can refit to the firs/ecs cargoes
07:09<vb>what is the best newgrf setting for a singleplayer game?
07:09<@Yexo>there is no single best setting
07:09<@Yexo>it all boils down to personal preferences

07:19<V453000>UKRS 3.04 <3
07:19<V453000>always good
07:20<V453000>it depends on what you want to play, try yourself :) discovering all the joys by yourself is best after all
07:20<vb>i only see version 2
07:20<V453000>UK Renewal Train Set might be the exact name
07:21<V453000>maybe without the Train
07:21<V453000>the UKRS2 is awesomely drawn but lacks some variety in compare to the 3.04
07:21<vb>found it
07:21<vb>should i also get the addon pack?
07:21<V453000>sure
07:21<Ammler>best is if you load at least 50 newgrfs
07:22<vb>:))
07:22<V453000>or 64 right :p
07:22<@planetmaker>...
07:22<@planetmaker>irony carries badly
07:22<vb>i have at least 461 hours of openttd played
07:22<vb>lol
07:22<vb>:/
07:22<Mazur>That way you get at least all the necessary NewGRF conflicts we want to know about.
07:23<V453000>I have about over 9000 millions hours of openttd player :p

07:34<@Yexo>http://wiki.openttd.org/Comparison_of_AIs#Features has a table comparing some basic features
07:34<@Yexo>you'll still have to try some to see what works for you
07:35<@planetmaker>yes, either try out a few AIs in the game yourself. They really have different play styles and competitiveness is not always what counts

08:57<Hirundo>I knocked together a patch to config static newgrfs via the GUI: http://paste.openttdcoop.org/show/890/
08:57<Hirundo>It's still WIP, before I continue I'd like some input on a few conceptual issues
08:59<Hirundo>How should static newgrfs and newgrf presets interact? Should presets set static newgrfs also? Should static and normal newgrfs be configured via a single preset, or is it best to split that? Or just keep presets for normal newgrfs only?
08:59<Eddi|zuHause>presets should be separate from static grfs
09:01<@planetmaker>Hirundo: presets should not care about static NewGRFs
09:01<Hirundo>So presets affect normal grfs only, and when the user is editing the static grf list, the preset buttons are disabled
09:01<@planetmaker>I'm not sure whether it's better to split static and non-static config.
09:01<@planetmaker>I'd first try it in the same window. With possibly differently coloured entries or a checkbox
09:01<@planetmaker>behind each newgrf
09:02<Hirundo>I currently made two tabs on the active newgrf list in the newgrf settings window
09:02<@planetmaker>ah, you made a separate tab. I'm fine either way
09:02<@planetmaker>it's less work that way, probably
09:03<Ammler>shouldn't openttd be able to detect "static" newgrfs?
09:04<Eddi|zuHause>different issue
09:04<Hirundo>It is able to test if a grf is safe for static usage
09:04<Ammler>Eddi|zuHause: well, it would mean, you do not need any manual selection of it
09:05<Eddi|zuHause>yes, you do
09:05<@planetmaker>if a non-static newgrf tries to interact with a static newgrf, the static newgrf is disabled. And there's a static check in the newgrf loader
09:05<Eddi|zuHause>just because a grf can be static, doesn't mean you want it to be
09:05<Ammler>why not?
09:05<Eddi|zuHause>e.g. german signals grf
09:05<Eddi|zuHause>i wouldn't want that in a UKRS preset
09:06<@planetmaker>Ammler: it's much better if you can select the static newgrfs to use
09:06<@planetmaker>or you'd have ALL tree newgrfs. ALL signal newgrfs. And ALL landscape replacement sets
09:06<Ammler>s/better/easier/, of course
09:06<frosch123>if we transfer the newgrf settings to the "start new game" window, then static newgrfs would be moved to the "options"
09:07<frosch123>e.g. next to the basesets
09:07<frosch123>and not in the same window as newgrfs
09:07<Ammler>the advantage would be that you for example could also disable a static grf loaded on a mp server
09:08<frosch123>you cannot disable static grfs in a running game, you would have to do that before joining
09:08<Ammler>frosch123: yes, now, that's the point :-)
09:08<Eddi|zuHause>you cannot unload a grf if it is loaded non-statically by the server
09:08<Hirundo>That gets you into trouble if other non-static grfs depend on that static-but-non-statically-loaded newgrf
09:08<Eddi|zuHause>even if that grf could be static
09:09<Ammler>well, the question is is there need to load a static grf as non-static?
09:09<Eddi|zuHause>you can, however, make a static grf that counteracts the effects of the other non-static grf
09:09<frosch123>yes, if non-static grfs depend on static grfs
09:09<@Terkhen>hello
09:10<frosch123>afternoon terkhen :)
09:10<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: some canadian station grf checks for presence of the dutch catenary grf
09:10<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: at that point, dutch catenary cannot be static anymore
09:10<Eddi|zuHause>even if by itself it could
09:10<Ammler>ok, I see
09:12<Hirundo>Currently I'm thinking about doing a safety scan for all grfs during the file scan at startup, then filter the list of available grfs when the user is selecting static grfs
09:12<@planetmaker>Hirundo: that'd mean really reading the NewGRFs completely
09:13<Ammler>but the whole point about static grf is for MP, you agree?
09:13<Eddi|zuHause>the grfs must be read once for md5sum anyway
09:13<Hirundo>AFAIK, safety scan aborts at the first action0/3
09:13<@planetmaker>And: static yes/no can depend on the active NewGRF list (e.g. query for the static one)
09:13<Eddi|zuHause>as long as the result is cached...
09:13<@planetmaker>well. Startup is not exactly instant with many newgrfs
09:13<Hirundo>planetmaker: that part of the safety scan is executed only when starting a game, afaik
09:14<@planetmaker>I just wonder whether this scan should happen threaded in background
09:14<Ammler>so the only time, you need static grf is when you join a MP game
09:14<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: no
09:14<Ammler>why else?
09:14<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: static grfs also "survive" a preset change
09:14<Eddi|zuHause>(at least they should)
09:15<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: or loading a scenario
09:15<Ammler>ok, but that might not need to be static, that could be called "global" or so :-)I
09:15<Ammler>does not need to be static grfs only
09:15<Eddi|zuHause>just because you don't see the use-case, doesn't mean it doesn't exist
09:15<Ammler>but for MP, you can only use static grfs
09:16<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: yes, for scenarios only static grfs can be changed

09:17<Ammler>Eddi|zuHause: mäh, you discuss newbie scenario
09:17<Eddi|zuHause>i discuss scenarios for 99% of the user base
09:19<Ammler>you should talk for yourself :-P
09:19<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: i'm not in the target group for a static-newgrfs-gui
09:20<Hirundo>Editing config files and hard-coding grf locations and parameters can be intimidating for many :-)
09:21<Ammler>nobody does that anymore
09:21<Hirundo>If I'd want to load a static grf, I'd load it as normal grf, set parameters, close openttd and copy-paste in openttd.cfg
09:21<Hirundo>Not exactly a user-friendly process
09:22<Ammler>well, the use for static grfs was high as you had to configure newgrfs via cfg
09:22<Ammler>since there is the newgrf gui, most play with what they got
09:24<@planetmaker>which shows clearly that editing a cfg is... not user friendly. As at the same time the NewGRF usage skyrocketed since they could be configured ingame
09:29<Hirundo>So, having a GUI for static NewGRFs makes sense, assuming that static NewGRFs make sense in the first place
09:30<Ammler>the possiblity to add/remove grfs which don't affect gameplay on a running game makes sense
09:30-!-supermop_ [~daniel_er@cpe-67-243-25-39.nyc.res.rr.com] has joined #openttd
09:31<Ammler>from my view the only usecase for it, as Eddi|zuHause mentioned, there could be another use case :-)
09:32<Hirundo>Are static newgrfs completely safe to add/remove even during a running game (w/o restart)?
09:33<Ammler>well, it depends how you handle those static grfs, which become non-static :-)
09:33<Hirundo>These are disabled
09:34<Ammler>but if you restart the game anyway, why do you need static grfs?
09:35<Hirundo>Currently you need to restart openttd to change static newgrfs
09:35<Ammler>he, don't think so
09:35<Ammler>or do you call joining a server a restart?
09:35<Hirundo>Does that change static newgrfs?
09:35<Ammler>of course
09:36<Hirundo>They are just applied (or not, if they turn out to be unsafe), not changed during a live game
09:37-!-alluke [~591b0bad@101.haydn.openttdcoop.org] has joined #openttd
09:37<Ammler>you can join with different static configs
09:37<Ammler>the same game
09:38<Hirundo>but you cannot currently change the grfs with all other grfs already loaded, you just load a different config
09:39<Eddi|zuHause>which means you need to make a temporary save and reload it
09:39<Ammler>Hirundo: yes, but you do not restart the game
09:39<Hirundo>Currently you have to restart openttd, thereby clearing all in-memory stuff
09:40<Hirundo>Changing hot memory might or might not cause new problems, I don't know for sure
09:40<Ammler>yes, you might need to restart the client, but the game still runs on the server
09:40<Hirundo>ofc
09:40<Eddi|zuHause>i don't think you two are talking about the same thing :)
09:40<frosch123>Hirundo: adding static grfs requires to reload all grfs, i.e. means to reload a game resp. rejoin a game
09:41<Hirundo>frosch123: reload also in single player?
09:42<Hirundo>or is ReloadNewGRFData() enough?
09:42<Eddi|zuHause>is that he function that is run when clicking "apply newgrfs"?
09:43<frosch123>Hirundo: problem with the latter is that engine reliability is reset
09:44<frosch123>(well, the same happens on "apply newgrfs" or "reload_newgrfs")
09:44<frosch123>but for static newgrfs it is safe to not reset engines :p
09:45<Eddi|zuHause>that function could use a sandbox to check what actually changed
09:45<frosch123>yeah, one might only reset the engines of grfs which actually changed
09:45<frosch123>though that fails if the engines depend on other grfs being present :p
09:45<Eddi|zuHause>well, grf-order may have influence
09:46<Hirundo>And perhaps other random data except reliability
09:46<Eddi|zuHause>that's why a sandbox is needed
09:46<Eddi|zuHause>create new newgrf config -> compare available engines -> resetengines
09:46<Hirundo>frosch123: grfid checks on static grfs disable the static grf for that reason
09:47<frosch123>yes, thus it is safe to preserve reliability when changing static grfs, but not when changing other grfs

11:02<eberon>hi all, quick gameplay question
11:03<eberon>I've been playing this forever and I never figured this out: 'days in transit' for cargo -- that starts when a vehicle picks it up, right?
11:03<@planetmaker>iirc yes
11:03<eberon>as soon as it leaves the station to a vehicle? so as you wait 20 days for a full load the cargo is losing value?
11:04<eberon>I saw a lot of interesting and really useful graphs on the matter on the wiki and I was wondering if maybe my full-train-length full-load single train only system is not really that optimized
11:04<@planetmaker>yes... but full load makes sure you have good station rating which gives you more cargo delivered to the station in the first place

15:52<Elukka>diagonal roads in a similarly tile based game
15:52<Elukka>just need some graphics to fill in the space
15:52<TrueBrain>duallane
15:52<TrueBrain>hmm
15:53<andythenorth>2 part diagonal buildings, with extended bounding box!?!?! :)
15:53<Zuu>Actually, if there is enough bits, I think the diagonal roads of the image that TrueBrain posted could be just one lane to address the issue of them being narrow.
15:54<TrueBrain>one lane diagonal would look better :P
15:54<TrueBrain>but in the end, diagonal road is just a waste of tiles :)
15:54<frosch123>did someone already make a mockup how 4 roadvehicles would fit onto a single tile?
15:55<Eddi|zuHause>frosch123: that should be easy. a vehicle is 8px wide, a tile is 64px wide... plenty of room
15:56*andythenorth will pay €500 for diagonal roads
15:57<Elukka>i think diagonal roads would be very useful in the countryside, not so much inside towns
15:57<Eddi|zuHause>the more important aspect is imho smoother curves (with less severe speed limits)

17:08<+michi_cc>Eddi|zuHause: Why do I have the feeling that your railtype curve idea is similar to what I had as an idea? :)
17:09<Eddi|zuHause>my idea isn't exactly new...
17:09<+michi_cc>It's not very hard code-wise if you limit the smooth part to half the track length on each tile.
17:09<Eddi|zuHause>yes
17:10<Eddi|zuHause>but you need to construct the sprite of two parts
17:10<Eddi|zuHause>or more
17:11<Eddi|zuHause>and you need to cache the sprite in the tile, otherwise the varaction2 evaluation takes too long for each draw
17:11<+michi_cc>The main blocker why I didn't code anything is that a) there are several ways to provide the needed info to the NewGRF, and I don't know which is the best because b) I utterly failed at trying to draw even one smooth curve, so I don't know how an artist would draw best.

17:17<Eddi|zuHause>while speaking about railtypes: can i have a coord-variable so i can do (x+y)%4-style sprite variation?
17:17<Eddi|zuHause>(similar to how catenary pylons are placed)
17:18<@planetmaker>when railtypes were implemented that was explicitly decided to not supply
17:19<@planetmaker>on grounds of possible performance impact
17:19<Eddi|zuHause>and i always disputed that claim on grounds of the catenary code doing the same calculations
17:20<@Terkhen>good night
17:20<@planetmaker>I mean... many things are possible. And arguabley things like townzone would be an interesting thing, too
17:21<@planetmaker>for example in order to provide different fences then
17:22<@planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause: you have though a tile-coordinate variable via the two pseudo-random bits
17:23<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: but it's a pseudo-randomized variable, not a regular one
17:23<@planetmaker>it's the least significant bits of the coordinate

17:25<Rubidium>it's the (x+y)%4-ish code that's used for trees
17:25<Rubidium>but seemingly slightly more random so you don't easily see that it's repeating every 4 tiles
17:25<+michi_cc>I know we didn't implement it, but I don't think the performance impact would be that big. Catenary code is ridiculously expensive for small visual reasons (drawing a single catenary sprite will look at *13* map tiles), and still nobody noticed a slowdown from that.
17:27<Rubidium>I think it was "land info of nearby tiles" that got dismissed
17:27<+michi_cc>(24 tile accesses actually, but only 13 unique tiles)
17:35<Eddi|zuHause>for curvy rails i only need the 4 adjacent tiles, with some bitstuffing
17:35<@planetmaker>actually writing a patch, Eddi|zuHause? ;-)
17:36<Eddi|zuHause>and the (x+y)%4 i need to place a km-stone every 2 tiles

17:37<Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: that's so unreal...
17:37<Eddi|zuHause>DB places a plate every 200m
17:37<Rubidium>then if I move my rail around a (new) station the kms would change
17:38<Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: if only those 200m would be really 200m...
17:38<Rubidium>they're mostly on catenary masts, which are 70m apart
17:38<Eddi|zuHause>yes, but the exact offset to the real 200m is written on the plate
17:38<Rubidium>also... 200m "track kilometers" can easily be 300m in the real world
17:39<+michi_cc>Eddi|zuHause: Why 4? If each track bit is overlaid separately you only need the two tiles at each end.
17:40<Eddi|zuHause>michi_cc: i mean 4 for the whole tile, not each trackbit
17:40<iddqd>after each savegame my buddy timeouts
17:40<iddqd>is there a console command that lets one timeout longer
17:41<Eddi|zuHause>opposing to "land info of nearby tiles", which smells like potentially a 32x32 area
17:41<Eddi|zuHause>iddqd: the timeout is 4 game days (ca. 10 seconds)
17:41<iddqd>yeah
17:41<iddqd>can i increase that time?
17:41<+michi_cc>Eddi|zuHause: I'm not sure drawing each tile as one sprite would make sense, that's a lot of sprites the NewGRF would need to provide.
