00:25<tk>is openttd not libre? my distro provides opengfx and opengsx and seperate packages
00:25<tk>does it not use these libre packages by default?

00:37<Epi>howdy
00:38<Epi>anyone know... if it's a stright line how I can work out the max distance for best profit using hovercraft?
00:39<supermop>trial an error?
00:40<Epi>been doing that atm, takes a while. ah well
00:43<supermop>i am not sure if there is a good way to calculate it on paper
00:45<DabuYu>there's the operating profit graph for passengers
00:46<DabuYu>hard to get the real values from that - but you can use that, and map the operating costs of the hovercraft
00:46<DabuYu>i think
00:46<DabuYu>but why to do all that effort, just play the game :)
00:46<supermop>well see if you can get the speed of the hovercraft in tiles per day
00:47<supermop>then take the passenger payment decay graph
00:48<DabuYu>(is this an idea to create an in-game optimal distance graph per unit?)
00:48<supermop>and at each day mark on the x axis muliply the payment y by number of tiles the boat would have traveled by that day
00:48<Epi>that would be cool, although i lack any said knoledge xD
00:48<DabuYu>me too :)
00:48<supermop>and at the tallest point, thats the best place
00:48<Epi>i might aim for the tiles crossed per day (it's not that great, i think 6ish with the hovercraft) and passanger decay graph
00:48<DabuYu>but it should be possible
00:49<Epi>my friend hates them, which is why i love them xD
00:49<supermop>if you can get an actual function for the decay rate it woud be easier
00:58<@Rubidium>tk: opensfx (sound) is less free than the other packages. It's also easily possible to play the game with Transport Tycoon Deluxe's graphics, sounds and music. So having a 'soft' dependency on the graphics isn't a bad thing
01:01<@Rubidium>also the sounds, graphics and music are platform independent and have their own release schedules, so they can be (and are) released at other times and other intervals than OpenTTD itself

01:09<Epi>mm another issue i found is my hovercraft gets paid 5k one way, 10k the other way. so strange (both same load of full passangers
01:09<xiong>Epi, is it possible that your pax do not all originate at the terminals of the hovercraft line?
01:10<xiong>Also, are you quite sure that the time on route is the same in both directions? Timetable it and see.
01:11<Epi>ah! that would explain it, i have been moving one dock further out slowly. the passangers are from the origional town

01:57<ET>I seem to have run into a problem with FIRS industry replacement. I have a forest connected to a sawmill connected to a lumber yard. I have a single train which refits after dropping off the wood. the problem is that if I drop off 120 wood, I only seem to pick up about 25 lumber. I am waiting 10 days at the sawmill... any ideas?

05:49<V453000>hello, I have a question - is there a way to make a industries "funding only" map in the scenario editor? Or is the only way create map with funding only -> make it a sav->scn -> scenario with funding only
05:51<Ammler>do you still need to rename a save to load it with scenario editor?

07:20<andythenorth>could we make vehicle expiry date a little more deterministic?

07:47*andythenorth ponders
07:47<andythenorth>¿ special spriteset syntax that lets nml do compile-time compositing of pngs?
07:47<andythenorth>using the offsets, bounding box etc
07:48*andythenorth wonders if PIL can be taught about alpha masks
07:49<andythenorth>Image.composite()
07:49<andythenorth>oh dear
07:49<andythenorth>this is something I could try for myself :o
07:50<planetmaker>http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1962795/how-to-get-alpha-value-of-a-png-image-with-pil
07:51<andythenorth>if run-time compositing for vehicles is a bad idea....compile time might be ok
07:51<andythenorth>whether it's TMWFTLB is another question
07:51<andythenorth>but photoshop twiddling is dull
07:51<andythenorth>code is fun
07:56<dihedral>hihihi - i was getting tons of requests to one of my servers ip addresses, for i have no idea what, so i wrote a rewrite rule to send all requests to a single php script. the php script outputs a 404 response header and adds the source ip to be dropped in the firewall :-D

13:35<andythenorth>and it comps on loads for steel, wood, tractors, crates etc
13:36<andythenorth>I think I can teach it to recolour things as well
13:38<andythenorth>I'm also certain I could teach it to draw flat trailers
13:38<andythenorth>and tank trailers
13:39<andythenorth>other types - might be more work defining the procedures than I save by automating it
13:39<andythenorth>there's some threshold of complexity where defining rules for automation gets hard

14:08<andythenorth>I can seed pixels from a basic floorplate
14:09<andythenorth>using magic colours probably
14:09<andythenorth>it's then quite trivial to say 'if pixel is hue xx: draw 4 pixels in y direction, using pattern aaba' or whatever
14:10<andythenorth>this will be completely adequate for trailers
14:11<andythenorth>it's kind of like extruding splines
14:11<supermop>this sounds far more complicated than drawing it yourself
14:11<andythenorth>supermop: it's more fun this way

14:42<supermop>like for it to support bridges, someone has to write a patch to make that happen?
14:43<Hirundo>there are already (partial) patches for that lying around
14:43<supermop>do people want to improve bridges in ottd first?
14:43<Hirundo>what do you mean by that?
14:44<supermop>(bridgeheads, custom sprite layouts etc)
14:44<andythenorth>that would need ottd patched
14:44<supermop>yeah, are they waiting to add bridges to nml until that happens?
14:44<Hirundo>not really
14:45<Hirundo>basically it's a combination of a) bridges are not used that much and b) bridges require special constructs / code (for the sprite property)
14:46<Hirundo>There has been some discussion, see http://dev.openttdcoop.org/issues/1348
14:48<supermop>i am not sure which is more important to me - the ability to have bridges with more than 6 unique tiles, or the ability to code a bridge in nml
14:48<Hirundo>If you want to get something done, providing patches generally helps, though in this case the low-hanging fruit is already picked

15:03<@Alberth>sounds very weird :)
15:06<supermop>is it better to have all bridges be able to be used for all types of transit, or to have specific types of bridges exclusive to certain types of infrastructure?
15:07<andythenorth>all types
15:07<Zuu>Maybe the assignment to waypoint should rather be that you can define a partial order list for how to travel between two waypoints. So if a order list uses A -> Wp1 -> Wp2 -> B, you could have a partial order list defining an exact routing between Wp1 and Wp2 with speed limits. Only problem is that the waypoints you use to change speed limits need to not be counted towards partial order list selection. ...
15:07<supermop>if a monorail bridge is the same price as a steel rail bridge, that eliminates one of the only real advantages of monorails
15:08<supermop>(imagine the quintessential elevated monorail on concrete pillars)
15:08-!-Guest2538 [~George@212.113.107.39] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
15:08<Hirundo>both infrastructure-specific and generic bridges should be possible, methinks
15:08<supermop>also a two-lane road on a rail tressel looks silly
15:10<andythenorth>supermop: I have no particular preference - 'all types' just seems easier ;)
15:10<supermop>but then a big suspension bridge, like the manhattan bridge, can an should be able to carry rail or road on any of its decks
15:10<supermop>and that raises an idea about converting bridges
15:10<andythenorth>so bridges gain a list of route types
15:10<andythenorth>oh - converting was one reason I think they should be all types
15:10<supermop>not just between rail types, but from rail to road
15:10<andythenorth>otherwise big headache
15:11<Hirundo>rail<>road is very tricky
15:11<Snail_>Multiple-deck bridges in OTTD?
15:11<andythenorth>Hirundo: GS? :)
15:11<andythenorth>demolish-rebuild
15:11<supermop>(as in brooklyn and manhattan bridges) where some of the rail and tram decks were converted to road
15:11<Hirundo>could be done, needs additional coding in ottd though
15:12<Snail_>The brooklyn bridge is a one-deck bridge ;)
15:12<Hirundo>as far as I can tell (looking at ottd source now), all newgrf rail types use the rail bridges
15:12<Hirundo>normal rail that is, not mono/mglv
15:12<supermop>the passenger deck is elevated about the two road decks
15:12<Snail_>Unless you count the pedestrian section, of course
15:13<supermop>road decks are separate between north and south
15:13<supermop>with call back you can do multiple decks as adjacent bridges detecting each other and changing graphics to look joined up
15:13<Snail_>Yep but the elevated part is only accessible by pedestrians and bicycles
15:13<supermop>but you dont save any money

15:22<Hirundo>frosch123: ctt_include_mask / ctt_exclude_mask is never reset, so you can only set bits, not clear them. Is that intentional?
15:23<andythenorth>ho ho ho
15:23*andythenorth is reading pixels
15:23<frosch123>no idea :)
15:23<frosch123>railtype compatibility also behaves like that
15:23<frosch123>everything else resets stuff upon reassignment though
15:25<Hirundo>It means that if engine pool is off, cargos excluded this way can never be included by later grfs

15:33<andythenorth>Alberth: I invented a third method for that project
15:33<Nat_AS>hmm, is there a Grif that can make industries free?
15:33<@Alberth>the newgrf spec makes it impossible to have control from the program

15:59*Alberth usually buys the train with the highest reliability

15:59<Nat_AS>well reliability is important too
15:59<@Alberth>I always forget to include a newgrf for them :)

16:02<@Alberth>Nat_AS: that exists :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piet_%28programming_language%29

16:04<andythenorth>right now I'm just having 'adventures with PIL'
16:04<Nat_AS>that uses bitmaps instead of text strigs
16:04<@Rubidium>andythenorth: okay, then Visual Basic ;)
16:04<Nat_AS>strings
16:04<@Rubidium>s/andythenorth/Alberth/
16:04<andythenorth>I never saw the benefit in visual programming
16:05<Nat_AS>suposed to be easier
16:05<andythenorth>it's like cooking soup underwater
16:05<Nat_AS>IDK though
16:05<@Rubidium>andythenorth: less typos for dyslexic people
16:05<@Alberth>never played with VB :)
16:05<@Rubidium>and more spaghetti
16:05<Nat_AS>ha nice metaphor.
16:05<@Alberth>I once saw a c++ program where you could draw a box, and it would compute the volume of it :p
16:05<Nat_AS>a GUI Newgrif complier would be nice to have
16:06<@Rubidium>I especially like the "example" labview code on the net... jpg
16:06<Nat_AS>feed it PNGs and type values into boxes,
16:06<Prof_Frink>VB is easier than V0.
16:06<Nat_AS>and it will churn out .grfs
16:06<Nat_AS>maybe even edit the sprites in the same program
16:06<@Alberth>Nat_AS: that's called grfmaker

16:06<Nat_AS>it exists?

16:07<andythenorth>Nat_AS: like the BANDIT-building CMS I made? http://dev.openttdcoop.org/attachments/download/2372/BANDIT_build.png
16:07<andythenorth>it's only for me, due to security issues
16:07<@Alberth>I am told it does, it doesn't run at my system so I never tried it
16:08<Nat_AS>intresting
16:08<Nat_AS>but a polished one,maybe even built into OTTD would be cool
16:08*andythenorth needs a palette with numbers on it
16:08<Nat_AS>or at least a standalone app that has the same style GUI
16:09<@Alberth>paint on it would be more useful perhaps :)
16:09<Nat_AS>the paint functonality would probably be for checking and adjusting alignment
16:10<Nat_AS>but you could also in theroy draw the whole thing in it if you really hate paint.
16:11<@Alberth>andythenorth: http://devs.openttd.org/~alberth/colours-palid.png does this look ok? (not sure it is the right palette)
16:11<Nat_AS>it would have ISO lines and croshairs for alignment checking.
16:12<Nat_AS>a program for isometric pixel art would be nice to have period
16:12<andythenorth>Alberth: I'd have to check it matches the palette I have :)
16:12<andythenorth>I can actually just get PIL to print out ids
16:12<Nat_AS>with lines that snap to the exact 2:1 grid lines
16:12<Nat_AS>and easy layers
16:12<Nat_AS>most graphics programs with layers suck at pixel art
16:13<@Alberth>andythenorth: just make your own palette with numbers with PIL :)
16:13<Nat_AS>and MS paint only has one layer (why it does not have that basic feature even today baffles me)
16:14<@Alberth>layers is not a basic feature for the average win* user
16:14<Nat_AS>Hurrrr M$
16:16<Nat_AS>right now I sometimes play aroundin SAI, but that is in no way for pixel art
16:16<Nat_AS>or anything that's not freehand painting
16:16<Nat_AS>it does not even have rulers
16:16<Nat_AS>I'd like to see a program that makes isometric grid rulers
16:17<@Rubidium>after all, paint is to write a letter ;)
16:17<Nat_AS>Pppphahahahat
16:17<@Rubidium>and word is to draw (vector-ish) images
16:17<Nat_AS>do people do that?
16:18<@Rubidium>you'd be amazed
16:19<@Rubidium>the preferred format for sending images by someone on my work is actually in an excel file
16:19<@Rubidium>(and sadly enough I'm serious about that)
16:19<Nat_AS>why not powerpoint
16:19<Nat_AS>bitches love powerpoint
16:19<andythenorth>Nat_AS: I just use photoshop
16:20<@Rubidium>Nat_AS: because powerpoint thinks for you and starts resizing the shit out of stuff
16:20<Nat_AS>photoshop is expensive, Gimp has an awquard GUI, and Sai is freehand only
16:20<@Rubidium>and then things aren't the same size between slides anymore and that annoys me
16:20<Nat_AS>and all of them are overkill for pixel art
16:21<Nat_AS>you have to turn a million things off just to get a single pixel instead of a brush
16:21*andythenorth has one bugbear about python: it refuses && for logical ANDY
16:21<andythenorth>logical ANDY?
16:21<andythenorth>logical AND :P

16:22<andythenorth>or patch python?
16:23<@Rubidium>that'd be the easy way out
16:23<Nat_AS>why don't more scenerios start before 1950?
16:23<Nat_AS>that's like cutting out half the game
16:23<@Rubidium>I'd suggest writing a CPU in VHDL that catches that corner case in hardware and replaces it with the appropriate code ;)

16:24<Nat_AS>needs to be more legacy types
16:25<Nat_AS>well the grifs I play with do have shit like horsedrawn carrages

16:26<supermop>but coworkers are around so can't use the big imac with PS
16:26<@Rubidium>in theory you can set it to ~0, just takes a long time before you're finding any newgrf that supports vehicles for that era
16:26<supermop>and there is not ms paint type thing on this macbook
16:26<Nat_AS>AH
16:26<Nat_AS>New vehicle type, SLAVES
16:27<Nat_AS>no running cost
16:27<Nat_AS>but really slow
16:27<Nat_AS>too bad you can't make towns and industries change with time (can you?)
16:27<Nat_AS>I want to make an antiquity grif now.
16:28<Nat_AS>with slave carried litters, runners carrying mail, caravans for cargo
16:28<Nat_AS>maybe Spice and silk cargo types.
16:29*Alberth thought Spice was only available at Dune
16:30<Nat_AS>Frankensense and Mir
16:30<Nat_AS>also, Irakis map
16:30<Nat_AS>to replace toyland
16:31<@Alberth>but I like toyland!
16:31<Nat_AS>better idea to replace toyland is internet map type
16:31<Nat_AS>towns are socal networks
16:32<Nat_AS>cargos are Clicks, Likes, lulz, ect

16:33<@Alberth>there was a tron-like idea recently where those would fit in very good imho
16:33<V453000>I already heard that from him andy dont worry :p
16:33<Nat_AS>Yeah, I'd imagine the map would look like tron
16:33<Nat_AS>and the tracks would be light beams
16:33<andythenorth>Alberth: '9' in my image is pink. whereas in my palette and yours it's grey :)
16:33<@Rubidium>tron is long gone
16:34*andythenorth may have to adventure in palettes
16:34<Nat_AS>OH, the trains would start out as tron style things in the 80s, but slowly morph into modern internet memes in the 2000s

16:55*andythenorth basically draws the floor plan in construction colours. Each colour maps to a sequence of other colours, which are drawn in the y direction
16:56<Hirundo>next step: a floor plan generator? ;-)
16:56<andythenorth>nope
16:56<andythenorth>:)
16:56<andythenorth>I considered trying to do 3D transforms and things for each angle needed

17:17<andythenorth>oh dear
17:17<andythenorth>where's frosch?
17:19<andythenorth>Rubidium: I have just worked out how to do the (quite simple joke) of encoding nfo in a bitmap then reading it with PIL
17:19<andythenorth>what I can't figure out is how to tie XML into this joke
17:19<andythenorth>:P
17:19<valhallasw>andythenorth: import xmlrpclib
17:20<valhallasw>and create a SOAP web service
17:21<valhallasw>or maybe create enterprise integration with SAP! At least, I guess they use XML. Maybe they intermix it with COBOL?
17:21<andythenorth>I could arbitrarily limit the size of the input png
17:21<andythenorth>then force the use of XML to tie a stream of pngs together
17:22<andythenorth>that might be an amusing limitation
17:23<andythenorth>also I propose to encode using 4px squares (2x2), to make it 'easier' to draw
17:23<andythenorth>which will need error checking to see if all pixels in a square are same :D
17:23<andythenorth>when is April 1st this year?
17:24<valhallasw>in about 6 weeks
17:26<Mazur>I believe for a change they've put it directly after March 31st?
17:26<Mazur>I don't know why.
