01:12<Pikka>mr andy
01:12*Pikka accidentally HOVS tracking table
01:13<Pikka>with 23 vehicles... D:
01:13<andythenorth>poopy doopy
01:13<andythenorth>where is it to?
01:13<Pikka>where is it to?
01:14<andythenorth>the table...
01:14<Pikka>what does "where is it to" mean? :D
01:14<andythenorth>bristolian for 'where?"
01:14<Pikka>oh right
01:14<andythenorth>like 'where is chipping sodbury to?'
01:14<andythenorth>to which the answer is 'chipping sodbury'
01:14<Pikka>haven't worked out costs yet but I can put it up :)
01:15<andythenorth>sir ozlington has made shunting
01:15<Pikka>which is great
01:15<andythenorth>I am scared newgrf will rain on his parade :(
01:15<Pikka>except pretty much the entirety of newgrf relies on the consist not changing outside the depot
01:17<andythenorth>I turned on auto-refit for HEQS trams; they change length in stations
01:17<andythenorth>think it causes an assert, or at least ottd is sad about it
01:17<Pikka>sounds like a very bad idea (tm) :)
01:18*andythenorth needs to turn it off :P
01:20<Pikka>apologies for presenting textations in graphical form
01:22-!-Prof_Frink [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:22<andythenorth>will you keep current size of graphics?
01:23<Pikka>they will be more in line with the UKRS2 sizes than TTD sizes
01:23<Pikka>I'll probably start with the titan or regent and send it over for you to compare to banditry.
01:25-!-Artix [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:25<Pikka>although I'm supposed to be working on UKRS2 today... lalala

02:17<Pikka>the link?
02:17<Pikka>planning for bus grfs
02:18*andythenorth ponders curling that and turning it into config data for a set
02:18<andythenorth>parsing the bitmap would be fun
02:19<andythenorth>not fun
02:19*andythenorth has a graphics library and is not afraid to use it!
02:19<andythenorth>new shiny toy syndrome :P
02:21*andythenorth decides writing a text-recognition tool might not be a good project
02:22<andythenorth>if it was a fixed width font...would be easier
02:22<andythenorth>just go in regular increments and see what shape pixel you got :P
02:24-!-Twofish [] has joined #openttd
02:37<andythenorth>what colour is paper?
02:37<Pikka>depends on what colour it is
02:37<Pikka>either white or brown or nondescript, if we're talking TTD loads :P
02:52<andythenorth>brown? :o
02:53<Pikka> here it comes now
02:54<andythenorth>they must be wrapping a big parcel

04:06<andythenorth>hey, it's pikka!
04:07<Nat_aS>I'm late but, cover the paper with a tarp :P
04:07<Nat_aS>to keep it dry in the rain
04:08<andythenorth>Nat_aS: your solution is a good one - for people who don't have a pixel generator in their back pocket ;)
04:08<Pikka>triffic andy!
04:08<Nat_aS>but white is probably the best way to communicate to the player visualy that the train is carrying paper.
04:08<andythenorth>for my next trick, I make those appear for all lengths 1/8 - 8/8
04:08<andythenorth>with loading states
04:09<andythenorth>then comp them to ve-hicles

05:00<@peter1138>probably not
05:00<@peter1138>not played for years
05:00<@peter1138>since the ukrs 1 days
05:00<Pikka>but now it's the UKRS2 days
05:01<Pikka>oh well
05:01<@peter1138>egrvts smells
05:01<Pikka>true that
05:02<Pikka>it's better than anything else out there
05:02<@peter1138>i miss your rv set
05:02<@peter1138>the never-finished one
05:02<Pikka>that one
05:02<Pikka>did you see what I showed andy earlier and what I've been doing all afternoon when I should have been doing UKRS2?
05:05<@peter1138>then i might have to play
05:05<Pikka>but it needs bandit for the trucks
05:06<@peter1138>andythenorth, hurry

07:35<andythenorth>it isn't andythenorth
07:36<Pikka>then to whom am I sprechen?
07:37<Eddi|zuHause>Pikka: question came up whether your vehicle sounds could be reused in a GPL project
07:39<Pikka>well, they're mostly sourced from places which I don't remember, so...
07:39<Pikka>I'm happy for them to be used, but if you care about where they're originally from you might not want to use them.
07:41<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: vehicle sounds are one thing I've considered paying money for
07:41<Pikka>really andy?
07:41<andythenorth>royalty free is usually cheap
07:41<andythenorth>finding sounds is time + hassle, often the rights on them are unclear
07:41*andythenorth has found a lot of sounds for games in the past
07:42<andythenorth>$3 for a sound, or spend 30 mins looking for one?
07:42<andythenorth>dunno if sound dogs license is GPL compatible thought :o
07:43<Pikka>tbh I find the sounds need so much editing to fit TTD that you can start off with just about any old crap :)
07:43<andythenorth>this said, I could never get sounds to compile with grfcodec mac, so I never pursued the idea :P
07:43<Pikka>I hope you're not adding running sounds to road vehicles :P
07:43<andythenorth>I tried adding a bulldozer noise to HEQS
07:43<andythenorth>fail :P
07:44<andythenorth>HEQS might all currently sound like buses, not sure
07:44<Eddi|zuHause>my main problem is that there's no appropriate startup whistle for <1950's electrics

07:45<Pikka>what should it sound like, eddi?
07:57<Eddi|zuHause>Pikka: well, it can sound pretty much like a steam engine's whistle, but i'd rather have a short blow instead of the long TTD one
08:01<Pikka>well, I could give you a whistle, but if you're worried about the provenance...
08:01<Pikka>because I have no idea where the original sounds I created these from came from :)

08:02-!-Biolunar [] has joined #openttd
08:05<Eddi|zuHause>here are a few examples how it can sound:
08:08<Pikka>neat :)
08:08<Pikka>I'd say get one of those wooden train whistles for kids, go into an echoey room and record it ;)
08:11<MINM>doesn't andy have a toddler? surely he should be able to acquire one
08:12<andythenorth>I used to have an awesome tone generator app
08:12<Mark>Hurrdurr, can you edit a .grf-file?
08:13<andythenorth>it let you compose sounds from ~8 different tones, with generators from sine, sawtooth etc
08:13<andythenorth>and one generator could modulate another
08:13<Pikka>who's Hurrdurr?
08:13<Mark>No one.
08:13<Mark>Just a question to everyone. :)
08:13<andythenorth>then you slice out a bit of tone, and visit Audacity with it...
08:13<Pikka>yes, most people currently talking can I think.
08:14-!-andythenorth is now known as Hurrdurr
08:14<Mark>Hurrdurr: :D
08:14-!-Hurrdurr is now known as andythenorth
08:14<Pikka>yes Hurrdurr, but it's better to start with something with a bit of timbre
08:14<Mark>andythenorth: So the answer is no, you can't?
08:14<Pikka>andy certainly can
08:15<andythenorth>edit a .grf?
08:16<Mark>andythenorth: Yer, edit a downloade NewGRF.
08:16<andythenorth>Mark: Hurrdurr was trolling you
08:17<andythenorth>Pikka: that's nice ^^ what does it do? :D
08:17<Mark>Just edit some parameters like weight, torque and top speed on trains like.
08:17<andythenorth>Mark: you can decompile the grf with grfcodec, edit the resulting nfo (uncommented hex), and recompile it
08:17<Pikka>it voyages, andythenorth
08:17<andythenorth>people do that reasonably often
08:18<Mark>andythenorth: oh, sweet.
08:18<Mark>Thanks! :)
08:19*Pikka wonders what Mark had in mind

11:44<frosch123>how many of you have a russian supermarket in their neighbourhood?
11:44<andythenorth>not russion
11:44<andythenorth>for why?
11:45<frosch123>well, one opened next to me
11:45<frosch123>everything is labelled russian in there :p
11:45<andythenorth>can you buy votes there?
11:46<frosch123>does "bargaining" count as "voting"?
11:47<andythenorth>only if you get to be the russian president at the end of the process :P
11:48<frosch123>would that result in a newgrf oligarchy?
11:48<andythenorth>is there one already?
11:48<frosch123>we already have rationed ponies
11:49<andythenorth>do ponies smoke?
11:49<andythenorth>or is that bad for their health?
11:50<frosch123>smoking is only good for elephants and rhinos

13:15<NGC3982>does delivering passengers to oil rigs stimulate the oil production?
13:16<@planetmaker>Nope. You also don't get soylent green
13:17<NGC3982>i was hoping for that.
13:17<@planetmaker>write a NewGRF which does exactly that ;-)
13:17<NGC3982>i was actually ranting about on that last week
13:18<NGC3982>but then, with passengers stimulating all the normal industries.
13:31<@Alberth>NGC3982: /me has been pondering about that too; could be fun
13:36-!-andythenorth [] has quit [Quit: andythenorth]
13:36<NGC3982>sure, it aint that realistic
13:36<NGC3982>but it will make small maps extremely more vibrant

13:43<NGC3982>Alberth: how advanced is building such a grf?
13:44<NGC3982>im more or less a newbie on anything in code. i write some C#, but i have no conception on how compilation and stuff is made or executed.
13:44<andythenorth>lo Alberth
13:44<andythenorth>tip for the wise
13:45<andythenorth>'cept the wise will already know
13:45<andythenorth> sequences[i] = PixaSequence(points=coil_load),

13:45<andythenorth>will cause much pondering
13:45<andythenorth>that was 20 mins to debug :(
13:50-!-lmergen [] has joined #openttd
13:54<xiong>I have some rather specific ideas about the initial distributions of towns, cities, and industries when starting a new game. Would it be possible to adjust these by writing a NewGRF or would a patch be required?
13:56<andythenorth>somewhat the former, possibly the latter, possibly NoGo
13:57<frosch123>nothing can influence the position of towns on map creation
13:57<frosch123>newgrfs can influence the position of industries
13:57<frosch123>nogo can influence town growth in the game
13:58<andythenorth>can nogo influence much at map creation time? or does it rely on a created map?
13:59<frosch123>nogo runs after map creation, but before the game starts
13:59<frosch123>so it can change some stuff after map creation
13:59<frosch123>but not much
13:59<frosch123>e.g. it could create a road network
14:01<@Alberth>NGC3982: nml is simpler than C#, and 'compilation' is as simple as nmlc foo.nml :)
14:03<xiong>Nothing? That seems extreme.
14:03<frosch123>well, none of the usual ottd plugins
14:03<frosch123>source code can of course change stuff
14:04<frosch123>and of course you can make a scenario :p
14:04<xiong>I see 'TerraGenesis'. Does that merely create landforms or does it also allocate towns and industries?
14:04<frosch123>it only does the height
14:05<xiong>I think there's sufficient control over that.
14:05<frosch123>maybe also sea, if you consider that part of height
14:05<xiong>I'm only concerned about towns and industries.
14:06<NGC3982>Alberth: oh, i see.
14:06-!-lmergen [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
14:06<xiong>Perhaps it would be enough to write a NewGRF to *evaluate* town and industry distribution after creation; one could then simply chuck it and try again.

14:07<frosch123>oh, i think you can write a nogo script which scores the map, sends the result to the admin port, and some external device on the admin port triggers a new game
14:08<NGC3982>Alberth: where do i look for examples of "setting an industry to <accept thing> and therefor <produce another>"?

14:14<xiong>frosch123, That's exactly the outline of my idea; thanks.
14:14<xiong>I appreciate the thought, andythenorth; but I'm not sure that's my direction.
14:16-!-lmergen [] has joined #openttd
14:26<NGC3982>andythenorth: i see.
14:38<@Alberth>adding some violence to the game?
14:41<andythenorth>that's for the new disasters framework I think
14:41<andythenorth>vehicles can destroy buildings
14:41<andythenorth>ships can sink
14:41<andythenorth>bridges collapse
14:41*andythenorth ponders
14:41<andythenorth>how did it get established that micro-management is bad?
14:42<@Alberth>did you know Python does not really support nested classes? :)
14:42<andythenorth>I do now :P
14:43<supermop>i like micromanagement
14:43<@Alberth>micro management is mostly bad because it scales badly, perhaps?
14:43<andythenorth>Alberth: is that wrt to some of the classes-in-classes I have?
14:43*Alberth nods
14:43<supermop>i want to be able to fire my bus driver if he disobeys the timetable
14:43<andythenorth>Alberth ach, is it a problem I should be fixing?
14:45<@Alberth>I would, I am not sure how much of it works by sheer luck, and how much is supported
14:46<andythenorth>so I just move the class defs out, change any self.fooclass stuff
14:46<andythenorth>should still work
14:46<@Alberth>and your editor does not show trailing white space :)
14:46<andythenorth>I could teach it
14:47<@Alberth>it might scare you
14:49<andythenorth>found an option: Strip trailing whitespace
14:49<andythenorth>think it does it on save
14:49<andythenorth>I should disable 'force newline at end' :P
14:50<@Alberth>nah, EOL at end is good :)
14:51<@Alberth>(assuming 'end' is EOF)
14:52<@Alberth>vi does that for 30 years already :)
14:57<@planetmaker>andythenorth, you're also using TextWrangler, aren't you?
14:57<@planetmaker>Kinda since I use that, that option works quite nicely for me ;-)
14:57<andythenorth>you didn't happen to teach it nml did you?
14:57<@planetmaker>Caused on some devzone projects quite some whitespace commits :-P
14:57<@planetmaker>no, I didn't yet :-(
14:58<andythenorth>I read the start of the docs on syntax colouring, ran away
14:58<andythenorth>I use ANSI C for nml
14:58<andythenorth>kind of works
14:59<@planetmaker>:-) yeah... the same for me with the syntax colouring texts

16:50<supermop>do maglevs or monorails have different acelleration in game?
16:50-!-pjpe [] has joined #openttd
16:51<supermop>is this a property of the track type or the trains?
16:51<frosch123>maglev have no friction and no tractive effort; only power
16:51<supermop>and monorail?
16:51<frosch123>it's a property of the track type
16:51<@planetmaker>track types choose an acceleration model. Monorail... has it's own iirc
16:52<frosch123>says only maglev is different
16:52<@planetmaker>ok :-)
16:52<andythenorth>1/8 long cargo sprites
16:52<andythenorth>meh to that
16:52<frosch123>monorail has a different curve speed modifier though
16:53<supermop>so if someone wanted a set with say rubber tired trains, or alweg monorails, is there a model to ascribe to that track type to give it different behaviour from steel wheel on steel rail?
16:53*andythenorth just sped up pixa by 1/8 :P
16:53<frosch123>supermop: rubber tired trains would be a property of the train
16:53<frosch123>i.e. their tractive effort coefficient would be higher
16:53<@planetmaker>supermop, different wheels don't change the accel model. Just the TE
16:55<supermop>so if i wanted to say 'these monorails, metros, people-movers, etc have rubber tires so they accelerate faster, can better negotiate steep grades etc'
16:55<supermop>i would do that by just giving all of those vehicles a higher TE?
16:56<supermop>is te set by new grf or automatically calculated in game?
16:56<@planetmaker>it's a property you have to set as newgrf author
16:57<frosch123>resp. :)
16:58<supermop>so monorail doesnt have any inherent differences from rail?
16:58<frosch123>trains can drive faster in curves
16:59<frosch123>see "curve speed advantage multiplier" on the railtype property page
16:59<supermop>is that alterable in the railtype newgrf?
16:59*andythenorth wonders how pixa can go faster
16:59*andythenorth suspects severe lack of optimisation :P
17:00<supermop>so i can adjust the amount of curve bonus it gets?
17:00<frosch123> <- just read those two pages
17:00<frosch123>and you know everything which can be changed about acceleration
17:01<frosch123>via newgrfs
