03:19<Pikka>got a bit punchy with autoreplace and had to go through my entire grf
03:20<Pikka>and work out which 16s were supposed to be 16s and which were supposed to be 0as :)
03:20<andythenorth>oh :)
03:20<Pikka>hopefully I fixed them all
03:20<andythenorth>I hope so too
03:20<andythenorth>my truck set is still....stuck :P

03:21<Pikka>the warm bit
03:21<andythenorth>yeah, I have "business interests" in Brisbane now
03:21<andythenorth>so I get weather reports
03:22<Pikka>what's her name?
03:22<andythenorth>actual people doing actual work
03:22<Pikka>how unusual
03:22<andythenorth>apparently it is toasty in Brisbane
03:22<Pikka>more steamy than toasty
03:23<Pikka>you have to go inland for toasty
03:23<andythenorth>meanwhile....we invented this thing called GameScripts
03:23<andythenorth>and then this thing called 'Cargo Goal Challenges'
03:23<andythenorth>give or take the capital letters
03:23<andythenorth>they're pretty fun
03:23<Pikka>hmm :)
03:24<andythenorth>totally destroys any attempt to make well-balanced grfs covering 200 years of gameplay :P
03:24<Pikka>hmm :)
03:24<andythenorth>but definitely fun
03:24<Pikka>does it though
03:24<andythenorth>we play for about 2 hours on multiplayer
03:25<andythenorth>in other news, DanMacK reappeared
03:25<andythenorth>and drew a crapload of stuff for me
03:25<andythenorth>ships, industries
03:25<andythenorth>can't keep up :P
03:25<Pikka>industries eh
03:25<andythenorth>you might want to pillage some for TAI
03:25<Pikka>I might...
03:26<Pikka>although it's more the coding that's holding up TaI, I don't plan adding too many more industries
03:26<Pikka>the main thing is altering production for the 19th century
03:26<andythenorth>yeah, that
03:26<andythenorth>let me know if you solve it :P

06:04<__ln___>7 minutes!
06:06<Pikka>it just started bucketing down rain here
06:07<Eddi|zuHause>rain... in australia?
06:07<Eddi|zuHause>the world is sure gonna end now!
06:10<__ln___>1 minute!
06:11<__ln___>There's a bug. Can we return it and get a full refund?
06:18<@peter1138>no your warranty's over
06:28<@Terkhen>hello :)
06:42<Pikka>why can't escape sequences be used for negative numbers? :)
06:43<@peter1138>they don't exist
06:43<Pikka>pretend negative numbers!
06:43<Pikka>why can't I escape FE as \b-2? :)
06:44<Eddi|zuHause>you can use NML :)
06:44-!-DDR [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
06:44<Pikka>NML is for people
06:51<@Alberth>and escape sequences are not for people? :)
06:52<Flygon>Eddi: Come to Melbourne
06:52<Flygon>Rains like bombs over the Middle East constantly
06:52<Flygon>One of three things we're known for
06:53<Flygon>The other two being Trams and being founded by a name with the surname 'Batman'
06:53<Pikka>also for supposedly being the best place to make a movie about the end of the world
06:54<Pikka>although apparently she didn't actually say that
06:55<Flygon>Pikka: Which one?
06:55<Flygon>I just remember it being the stupidest place to film Ghost Rider
06:56<Pikka>ava gardner, on the beach
07:01<Flygon>Ava Gardner?
07:01<Flygon>Never heard of it
07:12-!-FLHerne [] has joined #openttd
07:25<@Alberth>planetmaker: don't you need a decompressor to inflate wagons?
07:28<@planetmaker>nah. I just pull the plug
07:28<@planetmaker>like... pffffftt.... ;-)
07:41-!-Prof_Frink [] has joined #openttd
07:55<Flygon>Alberth: All you need is your own mouth! Give it a blow job!
07:55<Flygon>...wait, that came out wrong :B
08:10<Eddi|zuHause>i get the impression that it came out just the same way you intended it...
08:14<Eddi|zuHause>... so i guess getting the calendar version with the 3 extra doors was the right call :)
08:16<Flygon>3 extra doors?
08:17<Flygon>They make trains with calenders in them?
08:17<Flygon>...because that would actually be really convenient
08:17<Eddi|zuHause>you know, there's this german tradition in the christmas time to have a calendar with 24 doors, usually with a small piece of chocolate behind it
08:18<Eddi|zuHause>and allegedly they sold some versions with only 21 doors this year, because, you know...
08:19<Eddi|zuHause>(german christmas starts on the 24th, christmas eve)
08:20<Flygon>Those things
08:20<Flygon>It's somewhat of a tradition here, too
08:20<Flygon>But I'd rather just buy good Chocolate :P
08:21<Eddi|zuHause>yes. but a 100g bar of chocolate is gone in a minute
08:21<Eddi|zuHause>this 75g of chocolate is lasting you 24 days :)
08:21<@peter1138>german tradition? heh
08:21<@peter1138>typical advent calendar...
08:22<Flygon>Then I'll buy a 500g bag of Maltesers
08:22<Eddi|zuHause>peter1138: i think it was invented by a german
08:22<__ln___>jesus wasn't a german
08:22<Eddi|zuHause>jesus neither invented christmas, nor the christmas calendar :)
08:23<Flygon>Neither was Jesus European
08:23<Flygon>But nearly every post-1250 painting of him depicts him as otherwise :p
08:24<Eddi|zuHause>Flygon: and St. Nicolaus didn't wear a red robe either...
08:25<@peter1138>christmas is about spending stupid money on stupid gifts so that retailers make a profit
08:25<@peter1138>no need to bring religion into it
08:25-!-rhaus [] has joined #openttd
08:28<Rubidium>oh... war on christmas?!? ;)
08:29-!-rhaus [] has left #openttd [ - Chat comfortably. Anywhere.]
08:29<Flygon>peter: Depends
08:29<Flygon>I got 4 gifts
08:29<Flygon>As in, brought
08:29<Flygon>45 Star Trek VHS tapes, 4GB of RAM, and 2 shirts
08:30-!-Djohaal [~Djohaal@] has joined #openttd
08:30<@peter1138>not bought?
08:30<Eddi|zuHause>welcome to the 80s!
08:30<Flygon>This sent me broke, despite having the RAM as a leftover from an upgrade, the two shirts costing $8, and the VHS tapes being bargined down from $45 to $38 at the Salvation Army Op Shop :p
08:30<Eddi|zuHause>(actually we didn't have any VHS in the 80s)

08:31<Flygon>VHS boxes look really cool
08:31<Flygon>And they didn't have Voyager DVD's
08:32-!-Sturmi [] has quit [Quit: Sturmi]
08:33<Flygon>peter: Let's put it this way
08:33<Flygon>What looks more impressive?
08:33<Flygon>Big boxes of VHS tapes
08:33<Flygon>Or barely visible DVD cases? :P
08:33<@peter1138>AVI files on a HDD
08:33<Eddi|zuHause>... or put everything on a single HDD, and have space leftover?
08:34<Eddi|zuHause>avis are so '00s :)
08:34<Eddi|zuHause>it's usually mp4s or mkvs nowadays :)
08:37<Prof_Frink>Yeah, if you leave them as FLVs it's too obvious you just ripped them from Youtube.
08:37<Eddi|zuHause>you can get mp4's from youtube, you know...
08:37<Eddi|zuHause>just pass -f18 to youtube-dl
08:41<Prof_Frink>That's a whole 4 extra keystrokes.
08:42<Flygon>mkv > mp4
08:42<@peter1138>last time i was downloading videos divx/xvid was all the rage
08:43<Eddi|zuHause>Prof_Frink: they invented aliases for that... :p

09:16<FLHerne>I change 1 line of english.txt, and make decides to rebuild *everything*? :-(
09:16<Eddi|zuHause>practically every file "depends" on english.txt, there is no more finegrained measure
09:17*FLHerne wishes it was a bit more intelligent :P
09:18-!-RavingManiac [~RavingMan@] has joined #openttd
09:18<FLHerne>Now I have to wait 25mins while it compiles it all :P
09:19<@Alberth>install a compiler cache :)
09:20<Eddi|zuHause>use -j6 :)
09:20<FLHerne>Eddi|zuHause: Not enough cores/threads :P
09:21<FLHerne>compiler cache looks interesting
09:42<FLHerne>Pikka: Yay!
09:42<Pikka>you know how I said the bug with 4C didn't crash UKRS2? turns out it does. :) So I'm waiting on the next nightly to check it's absolutely fixed before I release anything.
09:43<FLHerne>That Banker will be perfect for my idiotic mountain :-)
09:43<FLHerne>Oh, and a Garratt? :O
09:43<Pikka>it's not /that/ good :P only 200kN or so
09:43<Pikka>yes, you can thank scuddles for both those locos
09:45<FLHerne>Pikka: I have triple-headed 0-8-0s at the moment :-)
09:45<FLHerne>I suspect at least one of those will be an improvement :P
09:45<Pikka>you'll prbably need at least double headed bankers, then
09:46<FLHerne>That might look cool. How about a Garratt?
09:46<FLHerne>Oh, there's a 442 as well...
09:47*FLHerne was just getting over his TTD-addiction :P

09:56<FLHerne>Pikka: Does this version have FIRS-compatibility?
09:56<Pikka>did previous versions not?
09:57<FLHerne>There were oddities such as Presflos carrying Fish but not Building Supplies :P
09:57<FLHerne>For cement tanks, I found that a little odd :-/
09:58<FLHerne>Actually, it might have been the polybulks that carried fish
09:58<Rubidium>FLHerne: it only recompiles files that include the string names. If you change the text of a string nothing should be recompiled (unless you change the parameters). It has to recompile all those files because the StringID might have changed
09:58-!-RavingManiac [~RavingMan@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
09:59<Rubidium>e.g. the squirrel code is not recompiled
09:59<FLHerne>Rubidium: That makes sense
09:59<Rubidium>... ever for string changes
10:01-!-flaa [~flaa@] has joined #openttd
10:02<Pikka>FLHerne, there's only so much room in a CTT, so really it comes down to cargo classes.

10:03<FLHerne>Pikka: Ah. Makes sense that way then. Still a bit confusing in-game :P
10:04<Pikka>perhaps. maybe you should talk to andy about his classes. ;)

10:15<FLHerne>Is 'apply patch to latest version, apply rejected hunks to the most similar bit of code, compile, see what breaks, tweak' a sane way to bump patches? :P

10:27<@Alberth>depends on what "see what breaks" means. If you only check for compiler errors, your method will fail
10:29<FLHerne>I already found that out. It now encompasses 'does the settings window for that feature work', 'does that feature work ingame', and 'can I save and reload a game'

12:44-!-George [~George@] has joined #openttd
12:46<oskari89> There's some sprites there, and on Diesel/DMU, Electric/EMU, Coaches and Wagons category as well.
12:48<oskari89>There should be folder for graphics (and sounds as well)
12:51<oskari89>That is a little too complicated for me :P
12:55<FLHerne>oskari89: You could just install Linux properly, and skip some of the mess :P
12:57<@Alberth>why do you need a virtual Linux environment?
12:58<oskari89>I don't know :P
12:58<oskari89>Oh, but no problem, i think that i may handle this :)
12:58<@Alberth>true, a Linux environment is much easier to make it work, but imho it is a much bigger gun than needed

13:51<@DorpsGek>-Feature(ette): Improve pylon placement around station tiles that display neither pylons nor catenary.

13:51<@DorpsGek>-Fix: Don't consider blocked rail station tiles that display wires as non-reachable for masking out unnecessary catenary wires.

19:09<drac_boy>hi Supercheese
19:10<Supercheese>Ave, amice
19:10<FLHerne>Just in time for me to test my patchpack with :D
19:11<Supercheese>Oooh, a Garratt in the addon set
19:11<drac_boy>had any progress with your seagulls Supercheese?
19:11-!-Flygon_ [] has joined #openttd
19:11<drac_boy>garratt? don't tell me its that LMER one that didn't last so long at all?
19:11<FLHerne>Supercheese: I saw that too. It stands out a bit :-)
19:11<FLHerne>LMS kind :-)
19:11<Supercheese>LMS Garratt
19:11<Supercheese>so it says
19:11<drac_boy>oh and all their names
19:12<FLHerne>drac_boy: LNER had one, the LMS built 20-odd(?)
19:12<drac_boy>I'll rather prefer an africa garratt of any kind than anything from any other countries tbh
19:12-!-Flygon [] has quit [Read error: No route to host]
19:12<Supercheese>I know exactly what I have to do for the seagulls, I just have to build up enough non-laziness to actually do it :P
19:12<FLHerne>Wouldn't fit the loading (or track) gauge :P
19:12<Supercheese>And now with new UKRS... it seems I'm going to be playing and not working
19:13<drac_boy>FLHerne actually the K1-K4 would
19:13*FLHerne wonders about the stability of such huge things on metre/3ft/whatever gauge
19:13<drac_boy>the K1 was rather a small-boiler 0-4-0+0-4-0 especially
19:13<drac_boy>K4 was just slight bigger with some extra nondrive axles
19:13<FLHerne>Oh, I was thinking those giant things
19:14<drac_boy>but as for the 2-8-4+4-8-2 and others ... they pretty much run well ... at the usual speed which is not much of a running speed anyway :)
19:14<drac_boy>I think like maybe 40-70 but I don't recall what they specified
19:14<drac_boy>freights would be toward the lower end for sure
19:15<drac_boy>supercheese have fun with that :P
19:16<Supercheese>Oh, I need to update and recompile, some fresh new commits fixing pylons and stuff look like good improvements
19:26-!-Devroush [] has quit []
19:33<Supercheese>Still can't believe I used to think compiling OTTD was "too difficult" :S
19:34<Eddi|zuHause>it's some really rare corner cases :)
19:37<drac_boy>supercheese just download something then run 'make something' ? :P
19:37<drac_boy>heh heh
19:38<Supercheese>Well, it was more like "download a couple pieces of software, install them, checkout the source, double-click the project file, tweak a setting or two and hit compile"
19:38<Supercheese>Which was vastly easier than I had anticipated
19:38<FLHerne>That Garratt pulls well :o
19:39<FLHerne>Just took 1,300 tons of coal up the steepest hill on my network, solo
19:39<Supercheese>weight multiplier of?
19:40<FLHerne>3x, as usual :P
19:40<Supercheese>(what I use, too :) )
19:40<FLHerne>Should replace my double/triple-headed 0-8-0s quite well
19:42<FLHerne>Now, if I bank it with that 0-10-0 thing...
19:42-!-Zuu [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
19:42*FLHerne is testing a patchpack and UKRS at the same time. Fun :D
19:43*FLHerne doesn't have to worry about hills anymore. At all :D
19:44<Supercheese>Increase steepness setting?
19:44<FLHerne>Two Garratts seem quite capable of dragging my heaviest trains up a continuous gradient :D
19:44<FLHerne>Supercheese: I could, but that would be boring :-(
19:44<FLHerne>Anyway, to sleep...
19:45<Supercheese>No, Boring is 100% Lev3 maglevs hauling everything everywhere :P
19:45*FLHerne hasn't touched the default trainset in singleplayer for years :P
19:45<Supercheese>Same here
19:46<FLHerne>I wish a CDist + FIRS + UKRS2 server existed and was occupied :-(
19:46<FLHerne>Not really much alternative to default trainset on the public servers, it seems
19:46<Supercheese>I think I'd prefer YACD from what I've read, but I've never honestly tried it
19:47*FLHerne did, and hated it :P
19:47<Supercheese>I've never had too much of a beef with default "manual distribution" myself...
19:48<FLHerne>Supercheese: Doesn't work on massively interconnected pax/mail or supplies networks
19:48<drac_boy>just muttering to myself here but why the hell do we have both metre gauge and cape gauge when a 67mm difference really can't be that obvious (just make the axle diecast a few centimeters wider)
19:48<FLHerne>The manual, Imean
19:48<FLHerne>drac_boy: Metric vs imperial, as usual?
19:49<Supercheese>Well even in CDist, passenger trains still go "everybody off, everybody on" rather than some pax staying onboard for the next destination, right?
19:49<drac_boy>FLHerne hmm ... whats imperal about 1067mm to be exact anyway?
19:49<FLHerne>3ft 6inches
19:49<drac_boy>heh hm good pointer
19:50<Supercheese>or 3.5 ft
19:50<drac_boy>well at least anything built for one gauge can be trucked to the other gauge pretty easily ... that is if they were close to each other
19:50<drac_boy>67mm clearance difference on track gauge probably isn't going to matter
19:50<FLHerne>Ah well, I really ought to sleep :P
19:51<drac_boy>ok bye FLHerne? :)
19:51<Supercheese>Vale, dormiture
19:51<FLHerne>In the UK, Ireland spontaneously decided to use 5ft3in, the mainland stuck with 4ft8.5 - still no idea why...
