04:56<@Alberth>nothing to see here, just a bunch of users that cannot be bothered to fix their connections
04:57<NGC3982>bah
04:57<NGC3982>maglev is almost cheating.
04:59<dihedral>NGC3982, why is that?
05:00<NGC3982>it's so easy it's almost boring
05:00<NGC3982>for some reason.
05:00<NGC3982>although, my argument is not a serious one
05:00<NGC3982>im just bored out of my mind.
05:05<dihedral>then you are not challenging yourself properly
05:06<dihedral>:-P
05:08<@planetmaker>NGC3982: use a very mountainous map. 40% water. terraform on water 1 million per tile. map size 256^2. starting date 1940. cargo weight factor 5
05:08<@planetmaker>bridge length < 10 tiles.
05:09<@planetmaker>recommended newgrfs: fish
05:10<@Alberth>moin
05:10-!-GBerten2936 is now known as lugo
05:10<NGC3982>planetmaker: difficulty level: planetmaker.
05:10<NGC3982>;)
05:10<NGC3982>ill try it.
05:11<@planetmaker>hehe :-)
05:11<TWerkhoven>breakdowns: on ?
05:11<@planetmaker>I'd play without. To me they don't add to the game
05:11<@planetmaker>they just annoy me
05:11<@Alberth>you need more tracks to compensate for them
05:12<@planetmaker>yes and no. You can hardly build such that breakdowns won't block crucial points
05:12<@planetmaker>you can't make everything redundant as even then trains break on the lane switches
05:13<@planetmaker>so you can just leave that be to add further redundant tracks
05:13<@Alberth>you'll hit the upper limit of what you can put on a track much faster
05:13<@planetmaker>yup
05:13<@planetmaker>that's true
05:14-!-Biolunar [~mahdi@blfd-5d820744.pool.mediaWays.net] has joined #openttd
05:14<@planetmaker>I like networks at 95% capacity without breakdowns though :-)
05:14<@Alberth>mine are more 20%-40% used :)
05:16<@Alberth>I need to work on stations, in my current game, 5 platforms are not enough for unloading cargo
05:16<@Alberth>which for you is tiny, probably :)
05:18<@planetmaker>oh, that depends. On a 256^2 map that can be quite decent
05:18<@planetmaker>of course I did build bigger stations. But that's most often a matter of scaling a concept which fits itself onto 4, 6 or 8 tracks
05:19<@planetmaker>without breakdowns, you need 6 to 8 station tracks for a mainline running at full capacity
05:20<@planetmaker>assuming that the exit of the station is as good (fast) as the entry ;-)
05:21<@Alberth>512x256, I'll make a few pictures
05:22<@peter1138>The problem with widescreen monitors is they encourage long lines of code...
05:24<@Alberth>yeah, we should have a max line length :p
05:24*Alberth gives peter1138 a piece of paper and some tape
05:28<@Alberth>http://devs.openttd.org/~alberth/map.png http://devs.openttd.org/~alberth/centre_coal_delivery.png http://devs.openttd.org/~alberth/feeder.png
05:31<@planetmaker>the main problem I see there, Alberth, is the exit of the central coal station
05:31<@planetmaker>it can easily be blocked by a single train going diagonal
05:33<NGC3982>limiting conjuctions usually speeds things up, as long as you keep track of the amount of queue time per tile.
05:33<NGC3982>somewhat.
05:33<@Alberth>that does not happen much, it is for exiting at the tunnel. Most of those trains take the rightmost platform and pose no proplem
05:34<@Alberth>NGC3982: coal is limited, you can go 1 platform left, straight, or 1 platform right
05:34<@planetmaker>also: you place signals immediately after the junction. Might not be optimal there
05:34<@Alberth>but the tracks are almost empty, they spend their time either loading or unloading
05:35<@planetmaker>the block signals I mean
05:35<@planetmaker>allow one train length so that no train can wait, blocking the exit
05:35<@Alberth>yeah, that can be improved indeed
05:36<@Alberth>but it sort of comes in heaps, all trains load, rush to this station, unload, go back etc
05:40<@planetmaker>yep. And congestion when it comes in heaps. ;-)
05:41<@planetmaker>I like networks with one continuous heap :-P
05:41<@planetmaker>it shows nicely the the efficiency of different building types
05:41<@planetmaker>and layouts
05:42<@planetmaker>and, tbh, most fun is to rebuild the stuff while upkeeping operation :-)
05:42<@Alberth>oh, I always do that :)
05:42<@planetmaker>lenght? yes!
05:42<@planetmaker>fun? Sure! :-)
05:43<@Alberth>except when upgrading to a new rail type
05:43<@planetmaker>that's not feasible indeed. But... I hardly do that
05:43<@planetmaker>at least when it's an incompatible railtype
05:43<@planetmaker>like rail->mono->maglev rarely happens on my maps
05:44<@planetmaker>rail->erail works just by drag+drop the whole map :-P
05:44<@Alberth>I once did that by building new tracks and platforms etc everywhere in the new railtype, adding new trains, and then breaking down the old service
05:45<@Alberth>which is also a lot of fun, as there is no room for the new tracks :p
05:45<@planetmaker>:-)
05:46<@Alberth>so either you have to make room, or you have to find a new place for them, or you have to reroute the old tracks to some temporary place
05:47<@Alberth>and usually you do combinations of the above :) "Sorry guys, you have just one track for this part now"
05:50<@planetmaker>yeah, something like that
05:50<@planetmaker>big station don't fit everywhere
05:51<@Alberth>maybe we should make the 'upgrade' button a cheat :p
05:53<Pinkbeast>It's vexing enough when you are reminded, unpleasantly, that even with double-diagonal, there's only one track type per tile.
05:54<@planetmaker>Alberth: for incompatible maybe ;-)
05:54<@planetmaker>but then it will be cheated around by means of a "universal" railtype
05:54<@Alberth>Pinkbeast: yeah, you need a lot more space, unfortunately
05:55<Pinkbeast>Particularly in the UKRS world where the whole network is not, ever, moving to maglev
05:58<@Alberth>Upgrading to a new railtype once is useful for the game imho, but doing it twice feels a bit forced due to lack of challenges imho
06:00-!-Zeknurn [~Zeknurn@hd9483b0c.seveveb.dyn.perspektivbredband.net] has quit [Quit: .]
06:01<@planetmaker>it depends imho how it's used. By simply improving the existing rail, it's good
06:01<@planetmaker>like slow rail->medium rail->modern rail->highspeed rail
06:01-!-Zeknurn [~Zeknurn@hd9483b0c.seveveb.dyn.perspektivbredband.net] has joined #openttd
06:03<@Alberth>It would be useful if railtypes are not so incompatible perhaps. rail->elrail is mostly fun as you can gradually upgrade
06:03-!-Varazir [~mircwars@c-94-255-132-169.cust.bredband2.com] has joined #openttd
06:03<Varazir>Hello , can I setup my own server and where can I read how to do it ?
06:04<@Alberth>at the wiki, mostly
06:04<Varazir>Hmm
06:04<@Alberth>or search at the forums, there are many people posting about it
06:04<Varazir>I'm there
06:04<Varazir>ok
06:05<Pinkbeast>NuTracks has done a lot here although it's a pity about the 16-type limit.
06:05<@planetmaker>there's basically no magic to it, Varazir. All you need to ensure is that the server is reachable via the necessary ports - as configured in the cfg
06:05<@planetmaker>@ports
06:05<@DorpsGek>planetmaker: OpenTTD uses TCP and UDP port 3979 for server <-> client communication, UDP port 3978 for masterserver (advertise) communication (outbound), and TCP port 3978 for content service, a.k.a. BaNaNaS (outbound)
06:05<Varazir>ya that's easy to setup
06:06<Varazir>but where do I download the server ?
06:06<@planetmaker>then start openttd as multiplayer for the internet. Voila. No special binary
06:06<@Alberth>Pinkbeast: I should checkout NuTracks thus. Thanks
06:06<@planetmaker>every client can act as server
06:07<@Alberth>Varazir: the server program is just another openttd instance
06:08<Varazir>ahhh ok
06:09<Varazir>I have a ESXi server I thought just install openttd on a linux system
06:10<@planetmaker>you *can* compile openttd without gui. But it's not needed
06:11<Varazir>so I need to run it on a linux system that runs X ?
06:11<@Alberth>there are many servers already (more than we have clients). What we really need is a sever that is actively managed
06:11<Varazir>ok
06:12<@planetmaker>Varazir: if you want to use the pre-compiled binaries, you need X installed
06:12<Varazir>ok
06:12<@planetmaker>if you want a gui-less dedicated server, you need to compile yourself
06:12<@planetmaker>use an svn checkout for that exclusively
06:13<Varazir>ok well I have a vm that's running ubuntu with X
06:13<@planetmaker>you'll need sdl runtime lib
06:13<@peter1138>X doesn't have to be running...
06:13<@peter1138>Just installed.
06:14<lugo>i'm not sure, do you also need X for running a dedicated (-D) instance of a pre-compiled binary?
06:14<Varazir>ok I'm running some other stuff on that
06:14<@planetmaker>as peter says
06:14<@planetmaker>lugo: yes. installed
06:14<@planetmaker>not running
06:14<@peter1138>It could be fixed by making the video driver a shared object.
06:15<@peter1138>Falls under TMWFLB
06:16<@peter1138>Not even sure if that would work seeing as several drivers rely on the same library.

13:36<andythenorth>really considering it
13:37<andythenorth>if we can get a 'proceed on clear sight ahead' modification to the train pathfinder, it should work really well
13:37<andythenorth>and modifying the pathfinder has been done loads
13:37<andythenorth>and is far more likely I think than roadtypes
13:37<andythenorth>having to signal roads would be boring :P
13:37<FLHerne>Breaks Nutracks compatibility, more random railtypes, lack of common sense :-(
13:38<FLHerne>Just get someone (r) to do roadtypes :P
13:38<andythenorth>how does it breaks Nutracks? :o
13:38<andythenorth>-s
13:39<FLHerne>Defines too many railtypes already, depending on completeness of trainset
13:39<andythenorth>ach, it's too big then :)
13:40<FLHerne>But five different speed limits and three electrification types... :P
13:40<andythenorth>I'm not going to reject a good idea because of what one other grf does :)
13:40<andythenorth>railtypes makes a lot more sense for most of HEQS

13:42<andythenorth>I am thinking of converting the mining trucks and other large vehicles

13:49<FLHerne>hi
13:49<andythenorth>FLHerne: they are RVs, and roadtypes is a -1
13:49<Zahl>does anyone know what exactly makes towns shrink? i tried increasing TOWN_GROWTH_TICKS to make them grow slower, but now they shrink when you deliver goods or passengers
13:50<FLHerne>andythenorth: Leave it as RVs then, and code some nice ships or something :P
13:50<Eddi|zuHause>Zahl: every house has a "lifetime", at the end of that lifetime it dies

13:52<andythenorth>roadtypes aren't available
13:52<andythenorth>railtypes are

14:42<@planetmaker>I think it doesn't

15:04<Eddi|zuHause>what about holidays?
15:05<frosch123>yeah, just wanted to say that
15:05<frosch123>it's allowed on holidays which are no sundays
15:05<Eddi|zuHause>this is in switzerland, btw.
15:06<frosch123>maybe they do not consider saturdays workdays over there?
15:10<Rubidium>most track work is done on saturdays and sundays, so those are obviously working days
15:10<Rubidium>on the other days the train drivers are working, so simply every day is a working day
15:11<Rubidium>and if the day doesn't work out, isn't that the day you wander on tracks trying to catch a train?
15:11<@Alberth>no trains in the weekend?

16:59<FLHerne>Surely there can only be one bridgehead on that tile anyway?
16:59<frosch123>the difference is when dragging road
17:05<LordAro>frosch123: looking back at the ticket, i have no idea how i made that relation either :L
17:09<FLHerne>frosch123: What happens differently when you drag road? :P
17:10<frosch123>when dragging road it build from where you started dragging until it fails
17:10<frosch123>it should stop at bridges, and not continue under them
17:11<frosch123>esp. when dragging from under the bridge
17:12<FLHerne>Oh, I see. So it succeeds on the first half (and builds over the bridge) but then fails intentionally on the second half of the tile?
17:13<frosch123>somewhat like that, but only if you actually drag till the first half
17:13<frosch123>ofc you can try to further improve it :)
