05:30<Flygon>Of all the planets I've been on
05:30<Flygon>This's the only

05:40<Flygon>Alberth, if I was an actual Flygon, I'd probably not be called Flygon :p
05:40<Flygon>It'd be like setting my nick to 'Human'!
05:41<@Alberth>So planetmaker also doesn't make planets?
05:41<Flygon>If he does, he should have a religion
05:41<@planetmaker>indeed. I only make planetesimals :-P
05:42<@planetmaker>growing planetesimals into planets is mostly a solved problem ;-) That's why :-P
05:43<@Alberth>you have staff for that :p
05:43<@planetmaker>it's like with children: just feed them and they'll grow by themselves ;-)
05:44<Sturmi>and become stupid ttd traindrivers :D

07:05<matzteri> Hi, im trying to play Germany, Switzerland and Italy v1.1 from SwissFan91 but im missing GRF
07:05<matzteri>could someone help we with that? im pretty new to TT, sorry.
07:06<@Alberth>did you try "find missing content" button ?
07:07<matzteri>yes, I did, but there are still a lot of unknown GRF's
07:08<matzteri>I couldn't even find them with google, for example NARS_Onlytemperate_v0.2.grf
07:09<@Alberth>you could try to find the scenario
07:10<@Alberth>I think SwissFan91 also has an account there, so a PM would be another option
07:10<@Alberth> is another place with many newgrfs
07:12<matzteri> &
07:12<matzteri>and I already did grfcrawler :) and I already PM to SwissFan91..
07:13<matzteri>but he didn't answer yet, so I thought I ask here.. because I was certain that everybody want's to play swissrailway.. ;-)
07:13<@Alberth>hmm, and no results thus :(
07:13<@Alberth>Swiss railways with american trains :)
07:14<@DorpsGek>Commit by michi_cc :: r24762 trunk/src/video/win32_v.cpp (2012-11-25 12:14:13 UTC)
07:14<@DorpsGek>-Fix [FS#5359]: [Win32] Don't crash when switching to an unsupported fullscreen display mode (like 8 bpp modes in Windows 8).
07:14*Alberth senses the death of 8bpp modes :(
07:14<matzteri>like I said, im new to OpenTTD so im sure im just doing a newbie mistake.
07:15<@Alberth>you seem to have covered the usual suspects imho
07:15<matzteri>I was wondering too, but there are also german trains, as it looks like..
07:16<@Alberth>yeah, trains from every country almost :)
07:16<matzteri>Ok, so I just wait for him to replay, thanks
07:17<@Alberth>sorry, I could not be of more help, but I am not using many newgrfs, and those that I do use, are simply at bananas
07:19<matzteri>I just wanted to know if I'm doing some stupid mistake, but you gave me the hints I already tried, so I'm killed
07:20<+michi_cc>Which GRFs are missing?
07:22<+michi_cc>There's also the openttdcoop GRF pack which contains many NewGRFs from the pre-bananas era:
07:23<matzteri>German Road Vehicle Set v0.23, Long vehicles.Mctrucks, Long vehicles. Spitzer trucks, Long vehicles, Volvo trucks. Vo, NARS_Onlytemperate_v0.2.grf, newstatsw.grf, Scania2Trucksw.grf, TotalBridgesRenewalSetVersio
07:23<matzteri>ok I'll have a look
07:26-!-Pensacola [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
07:26<matzteri>is it sometimes nessesary to edit the grf.config? or should it be enough to but the files in to the right folder?
07:26-!-DDR [] has quit [Quit: for the love of god this is not safe for work]
07:27<@Alberth>adding them into the newgrf folder should be enough
07:27<@Alberth>at least for a scenario or existing save game
07:29<matzteri>I found two of the missing grf's in that Pack :-) still 6 to go :)
07:32<+michi_cc> + + for maybe some more
07:33<matzteri>ha .. only 2 left :-)
07:34-!-MinchinWeb__ [] has joined #openttd
07:36<+michi_cc>Total Bridge Renewal has a lot of different versions for different roads, most of them are somewhere on tt-forums, but I don't think there's a single place.
07:38<+michi_cc>And a bit of google can do wonders:
07:41<matzteri>WOA! thanks!
07:41-!-MinchinWeb_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:42<matzteri>I googled for it.. *grr* but your obviously the better googler ;-)
07:42<matzteri>It works now, so im busy for the next 2 years or so ;-)
07:42<matzteri>thanks a lot for your help Alberth and Michi
07:43<@Alberth>have fun :)
07:50<MNIM>It's not possible to have bi-directional track in OTTD currently, is there
07:52<frosch123>sure it is
07:52<Ammler>of course, every track is that, you need signals to make it one way
07:52<frosch123>unless you mean like in rrt where stuff happens magically
07:52<MNIM>I meant like so
07:53<MNIM>but yeah, says no.
07:54<MNIM>I just tried just that, but I got massive deadlocking
07:55<MNIM>(perhaps I shouldn't have tested that on a heavily used line) XD
07:55<Ammler>well, I would use a 3rd line and use the middle bidirectional and the outers fixed
07:55<MNIM>There's that, of course, but I don't need a third rail just yet
07:57<Ammler>and you are sure, you need 2 lines in one direction?
07:57<Ammler>most trains also need to go back
07:58<andythenorth>I would switch to planes
07:58*andythenorth is sleepy
07:59<Ammler>I guess, that wiki page should sed s/Realistic/Silly/
08:00<Ammler>that wiki page misses links to sources to prove the realism
08:02<MNIM>ammler: it's an experiment to see if I can reduce the blockade a broken train might cause

10:21<Dr_Tan>> OpenTTD consideres track with single signals as one-way track.
10:21<Dr_Tan>what about path signals?
10:22<Eddi|zuHause>there are path signals that define one-way track and path signals that don't
10:22<Dr_Tan>why can't normal signals do that?
10:22<Eddi|zuHause>normal signals work different
10:23<Dr_Tan>i mean why haven't we changed that
10:24<Eddi|zuHause>because then they would become path signals
10:24<@DorpsGek>Commit by alberth :: r24763 /trunk/src (7 files in 5 dirs) (2012-11-25 15:24:02 UTC)
10:24<@DorpsGek>-Feature: Add industry type and cargo dropdown selection for easier navigating in the industry chain window.
10:24<Eddi|zuHause>and we already have those
10:25<Eddi|zuHause>Dr_Tan: the main reason why normal signals can't be changed is loading old savegames
10:25-!-pugi [] has joined #openttd
10:27<Dr_Tan>surely it wouldn't have to corrupt the game, just change how it is interprated?
10:27<Dr_Tan>might cause accidents
10:27<@Alberth>why do you want to change the existing signals? just don't use them
10:28<Dr_Tan>i don'
10:28<Dr_Tan>i don't think anybody does
10:28<Dr_Tan>path signals and presignals
10:28<Dr_Tan>but I was reading the page somebody posted
10:28<@Alberth>I do use the normal block signal, and path signals
10:29-!-Elukka [] has quit []
10:29<@Alberth>and I have some old save games that use pre-signals, and rely on their behaviour
10:31*MNIM uses ALLLL the signals
10:31<@DorpsGek>Commit by alberth :: r24764 trunk/src/industry_gui.cpp (2012-11-25 15:31:45 UTC)
10:31<@DorpsGek>-Change: Disable horizontal resizing of the industry chain window, it's not useful.
10:32<MNIM>PBS for stations and two-way singletracks, normals for everything else, pre/combo/exit signals for priority merges

11:28<Mister_Argent|2>oh god, just sent out a fleet of trucks but i forgot to refit them for grains first
11:29<Mister_Argent|2>Is there a way to bulk refit all trucks currently in a depot?
11:35<frosch123>sell them all :p
11:35<Eddi|zuHause>you can refit at stations :)
11:35<frosch123>refit one, and reclone
11:35<frosch123>yeah, or add a refit order
11:35<frosch123>go to depot, refit
11:55<MNIM>wait, you can refit at stations?
11:55*MNIM did not know that
11:58-!-RavingManiac [~RavingMan@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
11:59<Eddi|zuHause>it's a fairly new feature
12:00<ToBeFree>what O.O
12:01-!-mahmoud [] has joined #openttd
12:10<frosch123>and there are only 2 or 3 newgrfs which support it
12:13<MNIM>support it how?
12:13-!-Progman [] has quit [Quit: Progman]
12:15<frosch123>if they do not support it, you cannot refit the vehicles at stations
12:15<frosch123>i only know about ogfx+trains and ogfx+rv
12:15<frosch123>maybe there is a third one
12:16<frosch123>maybe fish 2, but only maybe

12:48<V453000>UKRS2 also has autorefit
12:48<V453000>and I think dutch trains too but not sure tehre
12:54<frosch123>you have them on your black list? :p
12:57<Eddi|zuHause>so why doesn't NUTS do autorefit? :)
12:57<frosch123>Eddi|zuHause: for the same reason coop does not use path signals
12:58<V453000>no frosch that is very different reasons
12:59<frosch123>is it? i thought both make the game easier
12:59<V453000>autorefit is simply a wrong feature, the only thing it does is make refit work the same way as normal stations
12:59<V453000>therefore removing possibilities from the game
13:00<V453000>PBS is just a simplification of thought process and potentially something that you can get stuck with instead of finding a better solution which would be more obvious if you always used only block signals
13:00<V453000>we do use PBS, but of course only in spots where it is necessary
13:00<Eddi|zuHause>that's because coop doesn't have space restrictions the same way "normal" players would...
13:01<V453000>dont we?
13:01<Eddi|zuHause>yes, you don't :)
13:02<Eddi|zuHause>like "preserve landscape" or "128^2 map" and stuff
13:02<V453000>I wouldnt say that, or at least definitely not generally speaking. Of course many spots on the network get in major space limits
13:02<Eddi|zuHause>yes, space limits, but orders of magnitudes larger
13:02<V453000>when you have a large junction, expanding some parts inside of it can get seriously limited in space
13:03<V453000>doesnt matter, PBS and autorefit still are very different things :)
13:03<frosch123>my space restrictions are usually of the type that i have to build single track, as there is no room for a second one
13:03<Eddi|zuHause>if you put junctions at stations, like 2 crossing double track lines, then you get orders of magnitudes more compact with path signals
13:04<V453000>yes but the X probably wont have the best throughput :)
13:04-!-Alberth [] has left #openttd []
13:05<V453000>I dont even think space efficiency is different, our aim just is to have all tracks able to handle maximum traffic
13:05<V453000>which, of course, is not possible with PBS spam
13:05<V453000>of course PBS is more space effective, you could pretty much apply that to any situation
13:06<Eddi|zuHause>and of course my famous example of a crossing that is impossible to handle correctly without path signals (or bridges):,%2024.%20Dez%201939.png
13:07<V453000>yes of course PBS has its uses
13:07<V453000>it has a lot more uses in fact, idk what do you mean with that argument
13:08-!-Sturmi [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:08<frosch123>i don't get the joke...
13:08<frosch123>there are not pbs signals in that screenshot, are there?
13:09<V453000>no but the junction is probably pretty broken at this point
13:09<V453000>because block signals cant really handle that too well
13:10<frosch123>ah, so eddi means to rebuild that junction with pbs
13:10<V453000>but as that is basically just agreeing on the point that PBS can be used for some of its functions, autorefit is different as it has no use
13:11<Eddi|zuHause>frosch123: yes. that was one of the most problematic locations before i used YAPP
13:11<frosch123>anyway, you did not set "build semaphores" to 1492
13:12<Eddi|zuHause>no, why would i? :)
13:13<Eddi|zuHause>sometimes i put it to 1970 :)
13:14<frosch123>it's like a logic puzzle
13:15<frosch123>you see the tracks and where signals are
13:15<frosch123>then you have to figure out the signal types
13:15<frosch123>wrt. what would make sense
13:15<Eddi|zuHause>only if you're not used to them :)
13:16<frosch123>maybe there should be a signal placement app for your handy
13:16<Eddi|zuHause>btw, the sign posts are the same
13:16<frosch123>yeah, but pbs vs. combo is hard
13:17<Eddi|zuHause>anyway, the problem of that crossing is the entrance of the wood station from the bottom, which crosses with the entrance of the passenger station from the right.
13:17<Eddi|zuHause>so you can only presignal one of them, not both
13:18<frosch123>pbs is just a better combo signal
13:18<Eddi|zuHause>in that case, yes
13:18<Eddi|zuHause>i have a screenshot of that same crossing with PBS later in that game
13:18<V453000>if you build 100% properly, combo signals should almost never be used in fact :) or at least not in cases when 2 combo signals lead to a single block

13:19-!-Sturmi [] has joined #openttd
13:19<Eddi|zuHause>V453000: there are solutions to that crossing without combo signals, but they all require more space
13:20<Eddi|zuHause>"solution" as in: it never locks up
13:20<Eddi|zuHause>which in the current situation happens when 3 wood trains arrive at the same time
13:20-!-Djohaal [~Djohaal@] has joined #openttd
13:20<frosch123>Eddi|zuHause: there is a trivial soluition: remove all combo signals
13:20<V453000>well yeah, with that track layout you really have to use PBS, but nobody is saying that you have to keep that track layout
13:20<frosch123>it will not lock up
13:21<Eddi|zuHause>yes, but it will have near-zero throughput :)

15:08<NGC3982>That sound's like a good idea.
15:10<Eddi|zuHause>copy-paste sounds like a bad idea

15:18<Eddi|zuHause>hey, it was "illegal" for me to even know this stuff :)
15:19<frosch123>hmm, i thought that was eastern stuff
15:19<Eddi|zuHause>no, it was the "western" sandmännchen
15:20<frosch123>ok, i never watched that... i thought there is only a eastern sandmännchen
15:21<Eddi|zuHause>the official spelling seems to be "Piggeldy"
15:21<Eddi|zuHause>and "Frederick"
15:23<Eddi|zuHause>in other news: Japan reveals maglev prototype:
15:28<Rubidium>they finally got approval for the Chūō Shinkansen?
15:28<Rubidium>they've been playing with maglev for over 40 years now
15:29<frosch123>maglev trains are like fusion power plants :)
15:32<NGC3982>Please let them, and please use it everywhere.
15:33<NGC3982>Regards, humanity.
15:33<NGC3982>Speaking of, are there any serious disadvantages on using maglev?
15:34<Eddi|zuHause>NGC3982: plenty
15:34<Supercheese>Cost, for one
15:34<Supercheese>Lack of trained maintenance crew, another
15:34<Supercheese>Cannot use existing infrastructure...
15:34<Supercheese>the list goes on
15:34<NGC3982>And both of those can't be mended as with the same factors for other rail types?
15:34<Eddi|zuHause>you can't use the japanese maglev system for low-speed freight at all
15:35<NGC3982>How is that?
15:35<Eddi|zuHause>you need speeds > 100km/h to even "lift off" from the helper wheels, as it's a dynamic system
15:35<NGC3982>Well, i see a problem then.
15:35<Eddi|zuHause>opposed to the german system, which is static
15:36<NGC3982>Using two different rail systems for freight and pax is not a fruitfull task, i guess.
15:38<Eddi|zuHause>even with a static system, you need additional energy to lift the "cargo", which is small for passengers, but very high for most freights
15:38<NGC3982>I see.
15:39<frosch123>so, even for pax it is not future proof since people become heavier
15:41*andythenorth just became heavier
15:41<andythenorth>I ate 3 sausages
15:42<NGC3982>I have been eating all day.
15:42<Rubidium>NGC3982: the Japanese high speed tracks don't have any cargo trains
15:42<NGC3982>And it has been glorious.
15:42<Rubidium>high speed normal gauge or maglev
15:43<NGC3982>Sure, that might work for the Japanese, but using two different rail systems does not feel like a good idea (at least if you can avoid it, of course :P).
15:44<Rubidium>Japanese non-high speed is generally narrow gauge
15:44<Rubidium>NGC3982: cargo trains are a massive no-go for efficient high speed rail networks
15:44<Rubidium>as cargo trains are slow
15:45<NGC3982>So, using two systems are unavoidable?
15:45<NGC3982>(For now)?
15:45<Supercheese>France said "screw it" and separated out their high speed rail system...
15:45<Rubidium>ever seen the time table of the Shinkansen?
15:46-!-Markavian [] has joined #openttd
15:48<Eddi|zuHause>japan used a new independent track system because they had to, france used a new independent track system because they could, and germany didn't use a new track system, but instead fiddled a few new tracks inbetween existing railway nodes
15:48<Rubidium>hmm, 'only' 130 trains Tokyo -> Shin-Osaka a day
15:49<Eddi|zuHause>Rubidium: so every ~10 minutes?
15:50<Rubidium>every 7 minutes on average (from 06:00 - 21:20)

15:55<Eddi|zuHause>Rubidium: i assume they solved it better than the germans on the KRM line (Köln-Frankfurt), where exactly the international trains serve the intermediate stops in Limburg and Montabaur :)
15:56<Eddi|zuHause>(which is as far as i heard a result of lack of trains to run on the line)
15:57<Eddi|zuHause>(new trains are ordered, but they are delayed because of technical problems)
15:57*NGC3982 crasched trains.
15:58<Rubidium>that Shinkansen line Tokyo <-> Osaka has 400k riders/day, which is peanuts compared to the Yamonote Line in Tokyo which has 4 million riders/day
15:58<__ln___>today's RTL news said something like Siemens is having troubel delivering ICE3s in time, possibly due to a software problem.
15:58<NGC3982>400k riders a day?
15:58<NGC3982>My bus has like 30.
15:58<NGC3982>Almost the same, yes.
15:59<Rubidium>NGC3982: 150 million/year, so pretty much yes
15:59<Eddi|zuHause>__ln___: "software problem" is a nice description :)
15:59<Rubidium>London Underground has, in total, only 3.25 million riders/day
16:00<Eddi|zuHause>__ln___: the main problem was that between pushing the "stop" button and the brakes starting has a 1 second delay of just processing the input
16:00<Eddi|zuHause>__ln___: but that is just the _current_ problem, the trains should have been delivered a year ago!
16:02<__ln___>very impatient people if they can't wait for 1 second! why don't the press the button 1s earlier then.

16:09<Supercheese>8bpp masks do though, no?

16:10<Supercheese>I think that's what he has
16:10<Eddi|zuHause>i don't really know the details, but it should be a greyscale image
16:10<andythenorth>is simutrans any good?
16:10*andythenorth is killing time between FIRS compiles :P
16:11<andythenorth>really really slow

16:11<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: dunno, kinda played that ten years ago :)
16:11<Bad_Brett>Yes, I have a 8bpp mask... greyscale? Not the blue background?
16:11<andythenorth>what's the fastest desktop CPU I can buy for cheap?
16:11<andythenorth>I'm only interested in single-core performance

16:17<Rubidium>andythenorth: Pentium 4?

16:42<MNIM>yeah, there's no excuse for switching out there their and they're
16:44<Supercheese>there/their/they're are easy, but I tend to screw up its/it's a lot...
16:44<Rubidium>its vs it's is easy as well: can you write it as "it is"?
16:45<Bad_Brett>nope, doesn't work... frustrating.
16:45<Supercheese>Oh, the logic behind it is easy, I just type so fast I screw it up
16:45<MNIM>Ill admit my it's/its aren't flawless either
16:46<Bad_Brett>any suggestions?
16:47<Supercheese>Well, you've already tried company color, that's what I would have thought
16:47<Supercheese>perhaps having a look at zbase would be enlightening
16:48<Supercheese> or so
16:49<Supercheese>those seem to be implementing the random_color for industries
16:49<Supercheese>lemme check houses
16:50<Eddi|zuHause>Bad_Brett: did you try it in 8bpp mode first?
16:51<Bad_Brett>Nope, I'll try that as well.
16:51<Supercheese>Statue has random_color too, I think:
16:52<Supercheese>hope that helps :)
16:52<+michi_cc>According to the code the random_colours property + 775 is the recolour map used (table is at
16:52<frosch123>Bad_Brett: for most houses you have to use the "struct" recolournig
16:53<frosch123>but some few original houses also use the company colours
16:53<+michi_cc>frosch123: That's only for sprite replacement, isn't it? NewHouses seem to allow all normal recoulours.
16:53<frosch123>so, it makes a big diffference whether you are doing something for a baseset, or for a newgrf
16:53<Bad_Brett>it's a newgrf
16:54<Bad_Brett>zbase seems to use 32bpp mask files? or am i insane?
16:54<Supercheese>Hmm, I dunno
16:54<frosch123>yes, newgrfs use normal cc
16:54<frosch123>(or 2cc)
16:57<Bad_Brett>now i'm really confused... zbase masks don't seem to use the palette at all(?) i can't even compile the grf without a proper palette on the mask files
16:57<Supercheese>perhaps baseset does stuff way different
16:57<Bad_Brett>yes, maybe...
16:57<Rubidium>Bad_Brett: the 8bpp-ised mask files are in the 8bpp folders
16:58<Bad_Brett>ah, alright. thanks
16:58<Rubidium>Zephyris creates the mask files with blender as well and then with a load of scripts it's converted into the right format

17:02<Bad_Brett>that's the one i'm using
17:02<Rubidium>and a more logical construction
17:02<Bad_Brett>but zbase seems to use the win palette
17:07<Bad_Brett>the weird thing is that the exact same mask files work perfectly on vehicles
17:08<frosch123>well, did you enable the recolouring?
17:10<frosch123>i mean "recolour_mode: RECOLOUR_REMAP" in the spritelayout
