04:29<@Terkhen>hi Beul
04:31<Beul>acording to this (2 year old) post the only way to get tow different tunnel portals in 1 game is to replace the monorail/maglev tracks. Is this still the case?
04:33<@Terkhen>to my knowledge, you can't have different tunnel portals with the same railtype
04:34<@Terkhen>I don't know if it is possible to include differences based on date or other factors with railtype NewGRFs
04:37<Beul>What I want to do is introduce a new rail type on whitch trains form other railtypes can run, and assign a different tunnelportal to it. It seems that the only way to do this is to replace the monorail.maglev tracks. Just wanted to chek if that was still the case
04:38<Beul>I do realise that is is not possible to have different tunnels for the same railtype
04:38-!-DDR [] has quit [Quit: for the love of god this is not safe for work]
04:39<@Terkhen>you can have additional railtypes, for example monorail_tunnel_1, nonorail_tunnel_2 and so on
04:40<@Terkhen>but I'm not sure about the "define tunnel for railtype" part either :)
04:40<@Terkhen>you should check the NewGRF specs
04:41<@planetmaker>Beul: each railtype can have its own tunnel entrance
04:41<@planetmaker>you can change them depending on time. But it would change also existing tunnel portals then
04:43-!-guru3_ [] has joined #openttd
04:45<Beul>planetmaker: whitch callback do I need to define the portals for a new railtype? as the tunnel_overlay only replaces the track sprites?
04:48<Beul>and replace [<block_name>](<sprite-id>[, <image-file>]) {
04:48<Beul> list of realsprites
04:48<Beul>} replaces other tunnel portals as well
04:50<@planetmaker>Beul: it's not a callback.
04:50<@planetmaker>It's the tunnel_portals spriteset
04:50-!-guru3 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:51<@planetmaker> explains the NML terminology and should give you an illustration of the sprites needed :-)
04:52<@planetmaker>read in the latter link the section on tunnel portal overlay
04:54<Beul>thy :D needed the info from the second link. allready got the right sprites (I hope) will see if this works

06:00<Beul>planetmaker: If I understand correctly the sprites needed for tunnel_overlay are 2 for the south-is entrances, based on sprite 4 from this ( ) image?
06:00<Beul>and 2 for the northern entrances
06:05<andythenorth>Ammler: thanks

06:18<andythenorth>does anyone want to hold this baby while I write code?
06:20<Beul>andythenorth: can't you code a newGRF for that?
06:21<andythenorth>there's a meta problem there
06:21-!-sla_ro|master [slaco@] has quit [Quit: DANGER is OFFLINE DANGER]
06:22<Beul>I'm giving up with railtypes for tunnel. Just going to override malgev for now until someone can help me figure out how to use the graphics { tunnel and tunnel_overlay callback in stead of replace :(
06:23<Beul>if I use replace all works fine, but the tunnel and tunnel_overlay callback do not seem to be doing anything
06:28<@planetmaker>Beul: yes, four sprites, one per direction. the tunnel overlay must contain the part which is drawn on top of the train. The tunnel track sprite must contain the part of the portal possibly hidden by the train
06:28<@planetmaker>so both, the tunnel track has one sprite per directio nand the tunnel overlay. Both contain part of the tunnel portal

06:40-!-CornishPasty [] has joined #openttd
06:41-!-Elukka [] has joined #openttd
06:49<Beul>that is what i thougt planetmaker, and my sprites do contain that, however if i use the callbakc like this: item(FEAT_RAILTYPES, item_NewRail) {graphics {
06:49<Beul> tunnels :spriteset_Urban_Tunnel;
06:49<Beul> tunnel_overlay :spriteset_Urban_Tunnel_Overlay;
06:49<Beul> } ,nothing seems to happen
06:50<Beul>the sprites are read properly because if I use the same sprites with a replace callback is does work
06:54<Hirundo>Beul: try setting the 'label' property to "RAIL" before defining the graphics
06:58<Beul>allready tried that, does not help Hirundo
06:59<Beul>I don't thik is tis the label or other properties, because if I trie catenary_wire and catenary_poles it does show up ingame
07:00<Hirundo>Beul: <- Read the comment below the table
07:01-!-kkimlabs_ [~kkimlabs@NYUFGA-WLESSAUTHCLIENTS-01.NATPOOL.NYU.EDU] has joined #openttd
07:02<Beul>ok, so elimimating the track underlay and only using the overlay should solve it
07:02<Beul>will give that a try
07:03<Beul>i mean eliminating the tunnel callback :p
07:05-!-John_Snow [~broken@] has joined #openttd
07:06<Hirundo>Beul: Although the documentation says so, OpenTTD source code tells me it won't work...
07:07-!-sla_ro|master [slaco@] has joined #openttd
07:09<Beul>lol, I figured, because tried and still failed. :p
07:11<Beul>thus returning to the point that the only solution for multiple bridge typs atm is to modify maglev/monorail to allow other trains to drive on them and replacing the tunnel graphics?
07:11<Beul>tunnel types ofc
07:12<Beul>seems like time for coffee -_-
07:13-!-telanus1 [~telanus@] has joined #openttd
07:13<Beul>or will it work if I sulpy all of the *'ed sprites?

07:15-!-FLHerne [] has joined #openttd
07:15<Hirundo>Beul: Yes, I presume so
07:16<Hirundo>michi_cc: Tunnel portal overlays are used only if rti->UsesOverlay() is true, i.e. if overlays/underlays etc. are provided, however documentation does not mention this. Is this intended?
07:16-!-telanus [~telanus@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:17<Eddi|zuHause>Hirundo: i guess that is backwards compatibility for GRFs that do ActionA replacement
07:17<Eddi|zuHause>something similar is done for level crossings
07:18<John_Snow>hey guys, how to play a single game with mod from luukland's servers? i'm tried to load NewGRF files, but it not works
07:19<John_Snow>mod city build
07:19<andythenorth>John_Snow: iirc, nobody knows
07:19<andythenorth>except luukland, who refuse to release sources
07:19*andythenorth might be wrong
07:20<John_Snow>understand, ty
07:21<Hirundo>Eddi|zuHause: level crossings belong the 'all or none' sprites
07:22<Beul>andythenorth, played there for a long time and have met luukland personally, doubt if even he knows how to. :p I think Xi and Muxy do most, if not all, of the coding
07:24<+michi_cc>Hirundo: The tunnel underlay was already only drawn for UsesOverlay(), and the overlay sprites don't make sense without the underlay, which the docs don't mention either (and bridge surface sprites and whetever else as well).
07:24<+michi_cc>For the original reason behind that ask peter, not me :)
07:26<Hirundo>Docs mention that you should either supply all of (overlay, underlay, level crossings, bridge surface, tunnel) or none, or "undefined behaviour" occurs
07:27<Beul>but then why is it possible to replace just the tunnel sprites, but not alter them using a callback?
07:27<Hirundo>replacement has nothing to do with rail types
07:28<Hirundo>replace = "replace sprites x..y" with these
07:28<Hirundo>callback = "define a new railtype (that may replace an existing one) and use this callback to get the tunnel sprites"
07:29<Hirundo>then OpenTTD says "Well, I can't use your cool new gfx unless you also provide me with overlays, underlays etc."
07:29<Beul>so this basically means that in order to have custom portals for my new rail type I would have to suply overlay, underlay, level crossings, bridge surface, and tunnel sprites?
07:29<+michi_cc>So replace "tunnel" with "tunnel underlay only or tunnel underlay and overlay"
07:30-!-Zuu [] has joined #openttd
07:31<Beul>michi_cc under/overlay for the tracks in the tunnel mouth or the tunnel portal itself?
07:31<Beul>always getting a bit confused there
07:33<+michi_cc>As illustrated in (The grass sprites are provided by OpenTTD, but can be overdrawn by the tunnel sprites).
07:33<Hirundo>I updated nfo / nml documentation
07:35<Beul>tnx Hirundo, makes it much more clear now
07:36<Beul>allthogh I do not have the time to sort out all of those sprites now, so I'll just replace and modify mglv for now :(

08:14<@Alberth>core is being able to give a direction at a station for some destination X
08:15-!-telanus1 [~telanus@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
08:16<@Alberth>I'd probably start by toying in a simple setup outside openttd
08:17-!-plastics [] has joined #openttd
08:17<@Alberth>perhaps interfacing by dumping orders + vehicle capacities from a game
08:18<@Alberth>but you need to be able to make new connections and break old ones, and the destinations should get updated
08:18<@Alberth>that seems complicated enough to do first in a simple setup for easy experimenting
08:19<andythenorth>'destinations should get updated' <- the ultimate destination, or next hop?
08:19<@Alberth>euhm, sorry "directions" should get updated, not destinations
08:20<@Alberth>oh, and adding and removing destinations is thus another head ache
08:20<andythenorth>I'm ignoring that
08:20<andythenorth>if you have cargo on the network, but no path to destination, it just sits there
08:20<andythenorth>all nodes are weighted 0 or such, so cargo doesn't move :P
08:21<@Alberth>that's at least one step further imho
08:21<andythenorth>I've only thought about loading cargo so far, I have no ideas to determine when to unload
08:21<@Alberth>you may also want to do a perfect computation so you have a baseline to check against
08:22<andythenorth>vehicle arrives at station A, with 30t coal, should it unload at A?
08:22<andythenorth>or should it remain loaded because next station (B) is better
08:22<@Alberth>cargo handling is also a next step probably
08:23<andythenorth>I guess YACD and CD both solved this already
08:23<@Alberth>I think the answer is simply (if the direction points to B, keep it loaded, else unload)
08:24<andythenorth>sounds good
08:24<@Alberth>you can of course also do the cargo first if you do a perfect direction computation, and take that as direction

08:25<@Alberth>but I think it's a solved problem
08:26<@Alberth>at least mostly solved
08:27<@Alberth>if you want to play, make a setup in python code
08:27<@Alberth>with vehicle capacities and orders
08:28<@Alberth>if you assume vehicle == aircraft, you can even easily generate a 'game'

09:07<Beul>so here goes: my first ever grf file:
09:07<Beul>tnx michi_cc, Hirundo, planetmaker and all others for your help
09:09<@planetmaker>you're welcome :-)
09:10<@planetmaker>hm, Beul, do you think that the fence on the non-cliff side is needed?
09:10<@planetmaker>I know no road set where there's fence between foot path and road
09:13<Beul>i haven't made the grapics, they are from Quast65
09:14<Beul>i don't think they are needed eather
09:14<Beul>actually redrawing it as we speak :p
09:14<@planetmaker>I just checked... unfortunately we can't check the town zone, I think. Would be cool
09:15<Beul>but first wanted to figure out the code, have some programing background but not a whole lot of experience
09:16<Beul>This could possbly look quite well in industrial areas as well especially with some other graphics on top
09:16<@planetmaker>NewGRFs have imho a rewarding learning curve :-) You can start small but as experience grows can make bigger and more complex stuff :-)
09:18*planetmaker --> out, enjoying the weather
09:19*andythenorth --> in, converting FISH to nml
09:19<andythenorth>but mostly holding babies
09:22<Beul>babies as in plural?
09:23<andythenorth>mostly one
09:23<andythenorth>occasionally two
09:24<Beul>can be quite handfull I gues. My cousin has two, 12 moths apart :p
09:28*andythenorth ponders allowing FISH cargo ships to refit to PAX

09:35<@Alberth>but indeed, it does not sound very useful as you already have ferries
09:37<@Alberth>hmm, andy may have gotten weird ideas from eddi delivering other cargoes instead of transporting nothing :p
09:37<@Alberth>eg to an oilrig ;)
09:51-!-HerzogDeXtEr1 [] has joined #openttd
09:56<andythenorth>mass pax transport :P
09:57<andythenorth>or auto-refit to backload small amounts of pax :P
09:57*andythenorth wants a game with YACD and auto-refit :(
09:59-!-HerzogDeXtEr [~Flex@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:59<FLHerne>What's wrong with CDist and Autorefit :P
09:59<andythenorth>I've never played CDist
09:59<andythenorth>doesn't appeal to me
10:00<andythenorth>is it fun?
10:00<FLHerne>Of course :D
10:00<FLHerne>I have 6-cargo mineral trains now :-)
10:01<FLHerne>And one set of trains that carry everything from Wood to Building Supplies to Metal while going round the network :P
10:02<FLHerne>Autorefit is awesome. CDist is also awesome. Both together is probably awesome^2
10:03<andythenorth>but you have to choose what to route where?
10:04<FLHerne>You run services and then the cargo travels to wherever your services go.
10:04<@Alberth>cdist creates load for your connections
10:04<FLHerne>Add another service, some cargo goes along that too
10:04<andythenorth>how does it balance links?
10:04<@Alberth>ie cargo magically goes to places you connect to :)
10:04<andythenorth>if I have coal A->B and A->C
10:04<andythenorth>how does it ensure that both my routes are profitable?
10:05<@Alberth>it probably doesn't, you may have to remove one if it is not profitable
10:05<andythenorth>so if I have A->B and A->C in profit, then add A->D
10:06<FLHerne>Some coal will go A -> B and some will go A->C. Proportion depends on various factors, run enough services to suit demand
10:06<andythenorth>so adding A->D will require the first two routes to be reworked
10:06*Alberth thinks so
10:06<FLHerne>A bit, possibly.
10:07<andythenorth>so on a highly connected network, each new connection will affect lots of other connections
10:07<FLHerne>If D was near C, you could add a C -> D service instead
10:07<FLHerne>if you have that many connections, the effect of adding another will be minimal :D
10:08<@Alberth>andythenorth: just like normal openttd :)
10:08<andythenorth>so the benefit is...what? No need for transfer orders?
10:08<@Alberth>some cargo needs more than one hop to get transported
10:08<FLHerne>If I have 20 mines and 5 accepting industries, and each mine is supplying a bit to all industries, there's not much effect from another connection or two :P
10:09<andythenorth>I should just play cdist I guess
10:10<@Alberth>best way to find out how it works :)
10:10<@Alberth>don't know if it understands auto-refit though
10:10<FLHerne>It does-ish
10:12<FLHerne>Needs to have one run with cargo x already available/refitted to before it'll autorefit stock

10:23<cmircea>Hey guys. I'm starting a role-play game with a massive rail network ( ), but need some help with connecting these two parts of the mainline:
10:23<cmircea>I am not sure what junction to use; I don't think it would be good to use all four tracks for connection, I would pick only the outer two, but that junction would need to handle a good amonut of traffic and also look stylish ;)
10:38-!-dotwaffle [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:39<@Alberth>why don't you experiment? imho that's a large part of the fun
10:40<@Alberth>btw I have no clue what to do, my games are not that massive
10:43-!-dotwaffle [] has joined #openttd
10:47<@Alberth>cmircea: the recommended way to post pics is to add them to the forum, as they tend to stay longer available than from a 3rd-party site
10:49<cmircea>Alberth, can't, I want to get the tracks first then start the network ;)
10:49<cmircea>Alberth, I added some make-shift junctions at each end though, that should do for a while.
10:50<+michi_cc>cmircea: Junction:
10:50<+michi_cc>IMNSHO such a junction looks worlds better than anything seen on our wiki.
10:50<+michi_cc>If is of course fully organically grown and in no way at all pre-planned.
10:50<cmircea>michi_cc, man, I'd kill for those bridges, if they would support custom tracks. It looks out of place when the end are standard, yet the middle is sometimes custom.
10:51<cmircea>michi_cc, Alberth, check the thread for the new post with what I made. Should do for now, though 2 tracks only.
10:53<@Alberth>crappy site, making it a jpeg, and reducing its size :(
10:55<cmircea>yeah well :|
10:56<cmircea>also, PBS signals baffle me, especially the one-way ones
10:56<cmircea>I did try to use two-way ones, but trains would end up getting stuck. I alternated direction every block, just like in real life, with junctions to allow switching between lanes.
10:57<FLHerne>How? They're probably the least baffling signal type... :o
10:57<cmircea>FLHerne, well the trains would end up stuck at blocks if I let them travel in both directions on both tracks.
10:57*FLHerne is always baffled by pre/combo/exit ones, and 2-way block signals
10:58<cmircea>should I use one-way path everywhere?
10:58<FLHerne>Depends, probably :P
10:58<cmircea>or use regular and put one way only at the ends to make sure trains take only one track?
10:58<cmircea>*regular as in regular two-way path, without the little plate
10:58<Prof_Frink>Confused by 2-way block signals? When I were a lad, that's all there was.
10:58<cmircea>Prof_Frink, haha, good old times.
10:59<FLHerne>Prof_Frink: What are thy for then? :D
10:59<cmircea>Does THIS make sense to you?
10:59<cmircea>yes, the lanes alternate direction, that's to keep it simple, doesn't matter.
10:59<+michi_cc>cmircea: It is not efficient to allow lane switching every block (and real life doesn't have switches after each signal either), regardless of which kind of signals you use.
11:00<cmircea>I mean the signals. Station has two way path, the tracks have one way path.
11:00<Prof_Frink>FLHerne: Making passing loops when 1-way signals are unavailable.
11:00<cmircea>Is that a sane signalling?
11:01<FLHerne>cmircea: looks sensible from here
11:01<cmircea>alright, are all those 1-way needed? or can I use regular and one-way only at the entrances?
11:01<FLHerne>I can't see what difference it would make
11:01<cmircea>(if it makes sense anyway)
11:02<FLHerne>But why bother?
11:02<cmircea>no plates everywhere xD
11:02<+michi_cc>In theory you could even use regular signals for all. Three regular signals backwards in a row have a high enough pathfinder penalty that it is unlikely a train will take such a route anyway.
11:03<cmircea>Yeah and they're have no path to cross on the mainline, aside from one directional track to the other
11:03<+michi_cc>Use plain non-path signals for the regular track then, path signals don't have any direct advantage if there's no junction around.
11:03<cmircea>that'd be 20-40 reverse signals to the next destination xD
11:03<cmircea>nah I'll use path everywhere, easier than switching between plain and path
11:04<FLHerne>cmircea: I see. Sometimes I use 1-way block signals in those places for the same reason :P
11:04<cmircea>I guess I'll add one-way if I see any issues.
11:04<FLHerne>Aargh, got ninja'd :-(
11:05<+michi_cc>One of the more nifty things you can do with two-way signals is
11:05<+michi_cc>In that case you do need the all path signals though, to keep the penalties on all paths consistent.
11:06<cmircea>michi_cc, at that point it's easier to jsut do two tracks per path.
11:06<+michi_cc>(Adpated from . Enable infrastructure maintenance if you don't see a point :)
11:06<cmircea>Check my game thread, I have a double track/direction mainline.

13:48<TomyLobo>it's 1992 and i can't build passenger trains
13:48<TomyLobo>is that a bug or a joke?
13:48<@Alberth>neither probably
13:48<TomyLobo>what is it, then?
13:49<@Alberth>what vehicles do you still see in the list of purchasing?
13:49<TomyLobo>most, if not all, except passenger and mail
13:49<TomyLobo>electric rail, btw
13:49<TomyLobo>and of course i see all the engines i'd expect
13:49<@Alberth>hmm, too early for monorail thus
13:50<@Alberth>what happens if you select passengers as cargo type?
13:50<TomyLobo>i only see trains with cargo capacity
13:50<@Alberth>I once looked for a coal wagon that changed colour
13:50<TomyLobo>err, engines
13:50<TomyLobo>morel, dash, sh 125
13:51<TomyLobo>1.2.1 btw
13:51<@Alberth>and default set I assume
13:51<TomyLobo>oh hey, you're at the top of the credits :)
13:52<@Alberth>My name starts with an "A" :)
13:52<TomyLobo>i only have the 8/32bpp trains 2cc newgrf
13:52<@Alberth>I did not do most , not by a long shot
13:53<@Alberth>oh, not the default vehicles thus
13:53<TomyLobo>it doesnt say it replaces wagons though
13:53<TomyLobo>but they look highres
13:53<@Alberth>usually, they just change / disappear and you get new / other ones
13:54<@Alberth>possibly in a different rail type
13:54<TomyLobo>yeah, so what do i do until that's the case?
13:54<@Alberth>hmm, can you select a newer rail type?
13:54<@Alberth>I never played 2cc, so no idea how it should behave :(
13:55<TomyLobo>2cc is something special?
13:55<@Alberth>I doubt however that a disappearing cargo type is designed to happen :)
13:55<@Alberth>TomyLobo: i only have the 8/32bpp trains 2cc newgrf <- that 2cc

13:58-!-roadt_ [~roadt@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:58<Matulla>Hi do i need the ship to lift 1 tile up at the river entry or does it take that tile on its own ?
13:59<@Alberth>Matulla: nope, you need a lock which is 3 tiles
13:59<Hirundo>Beul: You need to "physically" supply them
13:59<@Alberth>TomyLobo: I am out of ideas, perhaps you should post a question at the forum
14:00<FLHerne>With a screenshot and savegame, ideally...
14:00<TomyLobo>well all they'll probably tell me is that the newgrf is bugged
14:00<TomyLobo>i'd really like to continue this save
14:00<FLHerne>I have that one, it works fine for me... :-(
14:02<@Alberth>Matulla: the bottom image has a lock at the right
14:02<@Alberth>it is not a good explanation, unfortunately
14:03<Beul>Hirundo: guess that would mean I could copy the aproproate sprites from opengfx, define a spriteset and add a callback entry for them?
14:05<Hirundo>Beul: Yes, assuming that you comply with the licensing requirements (GPL)
14:05<Hirundo>Also, you might need to do a bit of cutting and pasting, because railtype sprites are composed differently
14:07<Beul>yes, ofc it will be GPL, and yeah realised *some* cutting and pasting would be involved (:
14:07<@Alberth>cmircea: do those depots work? They look quite far away for finding automagically
14:10<Beul>after al this time I am still in love with those path signals. If you set them up rigt they handle junctions and complicated station setups lik real magic :D
14:10<cmircea>Alberth, yep they do. YAPF doesn't have an issue.

14:15<FLHerne>That can be very irritating :-(

14:19<Zuu>infinite capacity and full load doesn't mix well
14:19<Beul>I don't mind the fact that they can pass throug each oter. rivers and channels would have to be verry large in order to avoid that. What bugs me more is when i bild a nice 2 or 3 tile wide chanel and they all prefer the sam tile :p
14:19<FLHerne>There's a patch for that, isn't there?
14:19<Zuu>I remember that patch too

16:40<Beul>yeah nutracks has them, and so has the dutch rail set for a few of their tracks. I am looking for the normal ones though as I have to supply them in order to have other custom sprites like tunnel entrances. I want the new rail type to match the normal rail from opengfx. It seems is does not yet exist. I will modify the opengfx ground sprites to only contain the underlay and not the terrain.
16:45<Beul>I could of course use the sprites that include terrain, but then the resulting grf would not be climate compatible
16:45<Supercheese>Working on that road-covered tunnel grf?
16:46<Supercheese>or was that someone else?
16:46<Zuu>Not only climate problems, but also that with ground tiles, you have to pick the ground tiles of one of the two base sets.
16:47-!-Chris_Booth [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
16:50<Beul>yes I am Supercheese, but I decided to make it a truly new rail type first
16:51<Beul>and that means providing more than 50 sprites for under, overlay, crossings and so on, about half of is does not exist as seperate sprites yet
