01:56<andythenorth>vehicle replacements
01:56<andythenorth>those form a directed graph right?
01:57<andythenorth>[in my newgrf where vehicles have a 'replaced by' property]
01:57*andythenorth is trying to figure out how to generate a replacement tree
01:57<Supercheese>Well, first you have to get a replacement seed, and then dig a hole in the ground...
01:59<andythenorth>you're closer than you think :P
01:59<andythenorth>if I know the root vehicle for any replacement chain, it's easy to represent it
01:59<andythenorth>if I don''s hard :P
02:00<andythenorth>A -> B -> C -> D is easy to represent if I know A is the start
02:00<andythenorth>but I don't know that :P
02:00<andythenorth>there's no 'replaces' prop, just 'replaced by'
02:01<Supercheese>then make one
02:02<Supercheese>btw are we talking about your config file or in nml afterwards?
02:04<Supercheese>Oh are you joining forces with the WSF ferry set?
02:05<Rubidium>andythenorth: hopefully they form a directed acyclic graph (thus a set of trees)

02:06<andythenorth>Rubidium: yes it's a set of DAGS (/me had a wikipedia visit)
02:07<andythenorth>actually I think it's a straightforward dep graph
02:10<andythenorth>Supercheese: this is for documentation / testing only
02:10<andythenorth>writing out the dep graph of replacements in plain text lets me check everything is configured correctly
02:10<andythenorth>and might be interesting to players
02:14<andythenorth>I could walk all the vehicles and derive a 'replaces' list for each one (from the 'replaced by' prop)
02:15<andythenorth>then look for vehicles with 'replaces = none'
02:15<andythenorth>which would form the start of chains
02:15<andythenorth>then iterate from there, building lists
02:16<andythenorth>seems like it might scale unpleasantly :P

02:31-!-mode/#openttd [+o peter1138] by ChanServ
02:32<Eddi|zuHause><Rubidium> andythenorth: hopefully they form a directed acyclic graph (thus a set of trees) <-- actually directed acyclic is more generic than set of (directed) trees. the equivalence holds only for undirected graphs
02:34<andythenorth>why is nml still shouting at me about dutch strings?
02:34<andythenorth>"String commands don't match with english.lng"
02:37-!-Pixa [] has joined #openttd
02:40*Eddi|zuHause imagines the andythenorth-solution to that problem being "remove dutch.lng"
02:41-!-LordPixaII [~pixa@] has joined #openttd
02:42*andythenorth did it properly
02:42-!-KingPixaIII [~pixa@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:42<andythenorth>although I do favour the occam's razor approach :P
02:43<andythenorth>fewer codes = less bugs
02:43*andythenorth wonders if that holds
02:43<andythenorth>it's possible to have one line of code riddled with enormous bugs
02:43<NGC3982>of course it does?
02:47-!-Pixa [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:54<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: "whenever you fix one bug, you create two new ones" doesn't depend on code size (-difference)
02:54<NGC3982>surely, compressing code makes the creator more aware of the used functions?
02:55<NGC3982>i mean, the big problem with me learning C# is that i use code that codes code that codes code that doesnt work.
03:00<Eddi|zuHause>that's a very bold theory :p
03:01<Supercheese>Yo dawg, I heard you like code, so we made you code that codes...
03:01<Eddi|zuHause>i meant the line before that
03:02<Eddi|zuHause>i have no problem with code that codes :)
03:02-!-Pixa [] has joined #openttd
03:04<NGC3982>well, i hope you catch my drift.
03:05<NGC3982>for instance
03:05<NGC3982>i managed to make an sql query that collected information, formated it with code that didnt change anything and then wrote it back to the database.
03:05<NGC3982>by accident

04:46<andythenorth>what happens if I have an nml vehicle with no graphics block?
04:47<@Terkhen>good morning
04:53-!-FLHerne [] has left #openttd []
04:54<__ln__>mañanas buenas
04:55<NGC3982>andythenorth: i did that by accident while making the tutorial truck. i cant remember the error messages, but it didnt work at all without an added picture.
04:55<NGC3982>a blank picture gives a blank truck.
04:55*NGC3982 tried to put all kinds of stuff in there
04:57-!-jstepien [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:58<andythenorth>V453000: feel like drawing a ship?
05:01<NGC3982>there you go
05:01<NGC3982>have fun, no need to thank me.
05:04*NGC3982 is so bored out.
05:07<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: the graphics block is the nml-equivalent to nfo action 3
05:07<Eddi|zuHause>i.e. without it you can only change default properties, not introduce new vehicles
05:08<@Terkhen>__ln__: "buenos dias"
05:08<__ln__>Terkhen: días
05:09<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: sounds plausible for my case
05:12*andythenorth is desperately seeking competent artists
05:12-!-jstepien [] has joined #openttd
05:12<andythenorth>incompetent artists > competent artists :P
05:14*NGC3982 sad face.
05:18<@Terkhen>andythenorth: tired of pushing sprites?
05:18<andythenorth>I wouldn't mind if I had uninterrupted hours to do it
05:18<andythenorth>but I don't
05:18<andythenorth>it's easier to code with an uninterrupted flow than draw
05:18<andythenorth>uninterrupted / interrupted /s
05:19<__ln__>Terkhen: ¿es legal tomar fotos en lugares públicos en españa?
05:19<@Terkhen>__ln__: I don't know the details but usually yes
05:20-!-Biolunar [] has joined #openttd
05:21<@planetmaker>English only, __ln__
05:22<__ln__>replace e->i in my question and it's virtually english
05:23-!-tokai|mdlx [] has joined #openttd
05:24<@planetmaker>is legal tomar fotos in luaris pulicos in espana? Rather not
05:24<@planetmaker>especially not from language pedantics like you ;-)
05:26<NGC3982>tomar fotos sounds like a planetary system in star trek DS9.
05:27<@Terkhen>it sounds like taking pictures to me
05:28<@planetmaker>The question not hard to guess. But I find it funny comming from the channels "English only" person :-)
05:28<@planetmaker>thus, sorry, couldn't help myself to pickup that ball :-)
05:28-!-tokai|noir [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:30<__ln__>my "English only" comments would be taken far too seriously if i wasn't the one probably speaking the most non-english in here. :)
05:32<NGC3982>seriosly, when i read "english only" in a topic, ill asume that jokes and single events are allowed.
05:33<__ln__>NGC3982: English only; "I'll"
05:34-!-Dutch [] has joined #openttd
05:34<__ln__>besides, nowadays nobody speaks hungarian here on a regular basis, so we need to come up with something else.
05:34<@planetmaker>we're humor free and allow no exceptions. Except for zombies
05:34<NGC3982>ive seen the truth in that first statement a few times now..
05:34<Dutch>I have a problem in the game help please !!1
05:35<NGC3982>Dutch: ohnoez call the maglevbulance! \o/
05:35<Dutch>i download the bus and tram set, but its dont show up in the game why ???????
05:36<NGC3982>can i aks to aks a kuestion?
05:36<@planetmaker>Did you use the ingame content download to obtain it? Did you activate it in the NewGRF settings?
05:36<Dutch>yes both
05:37<@planetmaker>Did you start a new game after activation in the NewGRF settings?
05:37<@planetmaker>Changes there do not apply to existing savegames
05:37<NGC3982>planetmaker: speaking of, is it possible to add or remove any grf's at all during a running game?=
05:39<Dutch>im gonna try to start a new game first'
05:40<@planetmaker>NGC3982: I believe you know the answer to that question already...
05:40<NGC3982>planetmaker: i do, but im emphasizing the "at all"
05:41<Dutch>it works only in new game
05:41<Dutch>not in my old saving maps
05:41<NGC3982>Dutch: yes, that is how NewGRF's work. you need to apply NewGRF's before starting a new game.
05:42<@planetmaker>Dutch: yes, that's intended and there's no "cure". NewGRF settings are an integral part of the map.
05:43<@peter1138>andythenorth, got the floor boards up. Managed to screw right through the middle of it...
05:43<andythenorth>how exciting
05:43<andythenorth>should have just left the screw in
05:43<@planetmaker>NewGRF define the game objects. Changing the meaning of the objects mid-game will usually break your savegames
05:43<andythenorth>do it a bit tighter, problem solved
05:43<@peter1138>andythenorth, it is!
05:43<@peter1138>I'm leaving it like that until the gas man comes so 1) he can extract it safely, and 2) he can LOL all day about it...
05:43<NGC3982>planetmaker: so i guess, the answer was "no, there is no grf that can be changed or added during in-game. ever."?
05:44<@peter1138>And also, where does one get new floorboards from...
05:44<@peter1138>Neither B&Q nor Wickes seem to do them.
05:45<@planetmaker>theoretically the answer is 'yes'. But it needs knowledge as of which. And it's not necessarily the obvious ones. And to every rule there's an exception there. So in general 'no'. Except for people who know what they do (aka newgrf developers)
05:45<Dutch>thank you all for help
05:45-!-Dutch [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
05:50<@planetmaker>NGC3982: due to the fragility and the even theoretical inability to predict compatibility (even of newgrf A v1 and newgrf A v1.01 with eachother), things cannot be changed. Unless you activate the proper developer settings
05:52<@planetmaker>newgrf authors could even make a newgrf which de-activates randomly other newgrfs...
05:52<@Terkhen>the only solution would be to deprecate NewGRFs completely and create a new type of addon that would take into account stuff like that from the start :P
05:53<@planetmaker>now, I like that idea, random de-activation. lol :-)
05:53<__ln__>Terkhen: is it a common practice that keyboard shortcuts are localized into spanish? e.g. Bold is Ctrl-N, Underline is Ctrl-S, Save is Ctrl-G?
05:54<@Terkhen>__ln__: yes
05:54<@Terkhen>it is quite stupid
05:54<@planetmaker>uh, that's common practise?
05:54<NGC3982>planetmaker: i see.
05:55<NGC3982>random de-activation :D
05:55<@Terkhen>planetmaker: yes :P
05:55<__ln__>that's surprising to say the least..

05:56-!-Zeknurn [] has joined #openttd
05:57<__ln__>in a way it makes sense, but... i guess there are programs whose shortcuts are not designed to be localizable.

07:23<andythenorth>that's another excuse to not talk :)
07:23<Eddi|zuHause>it's starving of neglect
07:23<Varazir>I'm having problem that my iron pits will not delevery any ore
07:25<NGC3982>Varazir: have you made sure that the station is close enough to the industry?
07:26<Varazir>it's next to it
07:26<NGC3982>Varazir: are there more then one station in the vicinity of the industry?
07:26<Varazir>I have 2 pits with the same problem
07:26<NGC3982>are you using some kind of NewGRF?
07:26<Varazir>no default installation
07:28<NGC3982>Varazir: note that an industry wont deliver any goods to a nearby station, if the vehicle used isnt configured to accept and carry the iron ore.
07:28<NGC3982>check your train/truck, and see if you have the wrong wagons or/and made the correct refit.
07:28<Varazir>will check
07:29<Varazir>could be that the stations I have ar eto close
07:29<NGC3982>let me know if you need help on how refit/choosing the correct wagons for refit works.
07:35<Varazir>will do
07:47-!-Arafangion [~Arafangio@] has joined #openttd
07:55<@planetmaker>Varazir, industries will also only deliver stuff to a station (by default) after a vehicle tried to pickup the cargo there
07:55<@planetmaker>at least once
07:56<@planetmaker>also: it's a self-generated map, not a scenario you play, right?
07:56<Varazir>could be that
07:56<@planetmaker>(scenarios could be anything - they're basically a savegame, thus settings will be as the scenarion creator chose them to be)

12:23<Hirundo>That's a whole new level of 'smoke testing'
12:24<andythenorth>he sounds like a comedian

16:48<@planetmaker>that's the linux way to put things related to a certain programme

16:48<FLHerne>planetmaker: I thought that was more for config or program data, rather than user-facing stuff?
16:52<FLHerne>Is there a config-file/settings option for that?
16:52<@planetmaker>what's NewGRFs?
16:52<@planetmaker>what's scenarios? Is there a difference between content_download and manual download?
16:52-!-Sacro [] has joined #openttd
16:52<@planetmaker>it's a compile-time thing
16:54<FLHerne>Program data, I suppose? Online content covers a lot of that sort of thing...people faffing around with strange NewGRFs (me included) should just put up with it
