04:33<OSN|GriGore>hello there, i want to start a server so me and some friends can join and have phun, but i have centos, [osn@gorehost ~]$ cat /etc/*-release
04:33<OSN|GriGore>CentOS Linux release 6.0 (Final)
04:33<OSN|GriGore>where can i get the centos server openttd ?
04:37<__ln__>on an unrelated note, 6.0 is not up-to-date, so you're missing a number of security updates and stuff.

11:07<Tiku>Guys? Anyone know why openttd.exe tries to access searchindexer.exe after quitting the game? Firewall makes an issue out of it. Normal behavior?
11:08-!-emlow [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
11:08<frosch123>ottd does not know about any searchindexer
11:08-!-emlow_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:08<frosch123>when it exits it saves the configuration
11:08<frosch123>if that causes your desktop search to update its index that an thing of your desktop search
11:09<frosch123>no idea what that has to do with firewalls though
11:09-!-svenzzon [] has left #openttd []
11:10<frosch123>maybe your desktop search reports everything you do to fb or so
11:10<Tiku>FW warns about unauthorized access on com interface at system32/searchindexer.exe.
11:11<frosch123>well, ottd certainly does not do that :)
11:11<frosch123>so, block it and see what happens :)
11:12<Tiku>o_O guess so. Havnt given permission to do whatever it would like to do. Gotta dig up what's the purpose of searchindexer and maybe why it would activate.
11:18<@Alberth>it enables a "find your document on a phrase" feature, probably
11:18<@Alberth>aka "grep" :)

12:09<andythenorth>diagonal rivers for 1.3.0? o_O
12:09<andythenorth>I'll draw them
12:11<frosch123>V already did them
12:11<@DorpsGek>Commit by alberth :: r25098 /trunk/src/lang (61 files in 2 dirs) (2013-03-17 16:11:19 UTC)
12:11<@DorpsGek>-Change(r25094): Change the population string for other languages as well.
12:11<andythenorth>I've seen V's
12:11<andythenorth>I doubt they'll be in trunk somehow? o_O
12:11<andythenorth>or are we changing how the game works?
12:15-!-wakou2 [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
12:16<Eddi|zuHause>"we" are most definitely not including V's "rivers" in trunk :p
12:16<andythenorth>so that just leaves the 'proper' diagonal option o_O
12:16<andythenorth>what do I need to do?
12:17<Eddi|zuHause>peter1138 used to have some half-baked sprites, iirc
12:17<Eddi|zuHause>and, of course, a patch :p
12:18<andythenorth>he has lost more patches than I'll write in my lifetime :P
12:20<andythenorth>window resize is a bit interesting on OS X :D
12:21<Eddi|zuHause>my brain just exploded...

14:13<frosch123>so, i guess pikka only tested multiples of 20 :p
14:19<frosch123>he complains that high acceleration values cause the aircraft to not accelerate at all
14:19<frosch123>while ottd actually uses (acceleration mod 20)
14:24<V453000>tell him to code them as trains :>
14:25<frosch123>not sure how aircraft would work as traisn
14:25<V453000>would be awesome
14:26<V453000>runways everywhere
14:26<Kjetil>to bad planes tax slow as hell ? :P
14:28<frosch123>hmm, how about baggage conveyor belts as railtype?
14:29<frosch123>V453000: would that suit your needs?
14:31<@DorpsGek>Commit by frosch :: r25099 trunk/src/newgrf.cpp (2013-03-17 18:31:35 UTC)
14:31<@DorpsGek>-Fix [FS#5492]: Limit aircraft property 0D to 19, since the conversion result to km-ish/h needs to fit into a byte.

16:02<andythenorth>probably features town replacement: nightclubs in manchester :P
16:06-!-Alberth [] has left #openttd []
16:07<frosch123>hmm, so... is it plausible that the aircraft speed unit is not 8 mph as documented for 10 years in the specs, but actually 15/2 mph?
16:07<frosch123>(resp. mph/8 and mph/7.5 for those who do not know how to do calculus with units)
16:07<Supercheese>aircraft speeds are borked in NML
16:08<Supercheese>when using the internal units anyway
16:08<frosch123>who talks about nml?
16:08<Supercheese>"100 mph" ≠ 100 mph in-game
16:08<Supercheese>frosch: NML is the only grf-speak :P
16:08<andythenorth>frosch123: totally plausible :)

16:53<V453000>there be a winner? :)
16:54<frosch123>there was a strong disagreement between voters and devs
16:54<frosch123>all devs voted for game 5
16:54<frosch123>but it turned out last anyway
16:55<V453000>sooo ... fuck voters? :D
16:56<V453000>wait 05 is in nightlies :D
16:56<frosch123>game 5 would have been the least work :)
16:56<V453000>which one was first by voters? :) just curious
16:56<Rubidium>the one in 1.3?
16:56<frosch123>i think there will be an annoucement :p
16:57<V453000>well I like the nightly one personally
16:57<V453000>buuut having something different for stable is nice too
16:58<Eddi|zuHause>ah i knew i forgot something...

17:14<andythenorth>question: container trucks
17:14<andythenorth>my BANDIT set design is now *really* minimal
17:14-!-oskari89 [] has joined #openttd
17:14<andythenorth>are containers a subtype refit, or a new vehicle type?
17:14<andythenorth>subtype refitting got better recently ;)
17:19<Eddi|zuHause>container trucks: slightly lower capacity, but autorefit to everything?
17:19-!-oskari892 [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
17:20<Eddi|zuHause>not sure how that relates to normal articulated trucks
17:22<Snail>what kinds of cargo do you use containers for?
17:24<andythenorth>in Squid Ate FISH, it will be express only
17:24<andythenorth>give or take what I define as 'express' :P
17:25<Snail>I also use containers for FIRS supplies in my set
17:25-!-Flygon_ [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
17:25-!-Flygon_ [] has joined #openttd
17:26<Snail>for instance farm supplies could be tools that can be transported in containers

17:32<Eddi|zuHause>petrol and plant fibres don't quite fit in this list
17:32<Eddi|zuHause>also, check how ECS cargos fit into that
17:33<Eddi|zuHause>"plant fibres" is a cargo i don't really understand in general
17:34<andythenorth>how do I make ECS work?
17:34<andythenorth>I loaded all vectors, but only a few cargos appear
17:34<Eddi|zuHause>order them by GRFID
17:34-!-Dewin [] has joined #openttd
17:34<Eddi|zuHause>i think the town vector has to be first
17:35<andythenorth>oops, don't change those on a running game :P
17:35<Snail>yes and how about wood?
17:35<Eddi|zuHause>Timber = processed wood
17:35<Snail>that wouldn't fit very well in containers IMO...
17:36<Snail>timber would be ok (more regular size) but wood?
17:36<Snail>oh wood is not in the list :p I misread "wool"
17:36<andythenorth>Snail: logs can be done, but meh

17:36<Eddi|zuHause>not watching youtube tonight...
17:37<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: the first video is blocked for copyfudge
17:37<Eddi|zuHause>apparently it contains music
17:38<andythenorth>^ bulldozer going in sideways to a 40ft container
17:38<Eddi|zuHause>and that is not allowed. it's VERBOTEN
17:38<Eddi|zuHause>excuse me if i don't feel the same excitement about heavy machinery as you do.
17:40<andythenorth>you're excused
17:40<andythenorth>hmm youtube. there goes the rest of my evening
17:41<V453000>3 logs per container? :D LOL would not want to load that
17:43<andythenorth>nice animation in ECS
17:43<andythenorth>refits with ECS
17:44<Eddi|zuHause>i'm not familiar enough with ECS to see which cargos are excluded then
17:45<Eddi|zuHause>but you left out mail
17:47<Snail>gasoline in containers?
17:47<Snail>wouldn't tanks be better?
17:48<Snail>but then you'd have to change the visual representation on the ship (if any)

17:58<@DorpsGek>-Fix [FS#5507]: Allow changing GS settings in-game via the AI/GS config window.
17:58<Snail>or just restrict liquid stuff to tank ships :) (water can be ok, if it's in bottles)

19:19<@Terkhen>good night
19:32-!-Core_Xii [] has joined #openttd
19:35<Core_Xii>what, in terms of the game engine and NewGRF capabilities, is the difference between bus stations and truck stations?
19:35-!-Extrems [borgs@] has joined #openttd
19:35<Supercheese>Bus stations are for RVs that carry Passenger cargo classes only
19:35<Supercheese>truck stations are for RVs that carry other-than-passenger cargos
19:35<Core_Xii>so NewGRFs cannot define trucks that carry passengers nor buses that carry cargo?
19:36<Supercheese>any "bus" that carries, say, mail, becomes essentially not-a-bus
19:36<Supercheese>you can define what you like
19:36<Core_Xii>so what's the difference between the two?
19:36<Supercheese>the RV will have to go to the appropriate station based on what cargo it currently carries
19:37<Core_Xii>but I can define each type of station, what type of cargo it can handle?
19:37<Supercheese>I have no idea what happens if you have an articulated RV with mixed passenger & non-passenger cargoes
19:38<Supercheese>newgrfs can only change road station graphics
19:38<Core_Xii>bus/truck stations are fixed to always handle passenger-class cargo and other cargo, respectively?
19:39<Supercheese>also, I wonder if weird things would happen if your RV decides to autorefit to passengers while in a truck station, or autorefit to non-passengers while in a bus station
19:39<Core_Xii>is there anything special about passenger class cargo? (other than this)
19:40<Supercheese>a few things
19:40<Supercheese>town growth stuff
19:40<Supercheese>requires passenger-class cargo
19:40<Core_Xii>I recall the wiki saying that temperate towns grow as long as any cargo is transported near them?
19:41<Core_Xii>"Town growth can be accelerated by loading and unloading at least one item of cargo at up to five stations within town influence within a two month period. It does not matter which cargos are loaded/unloaded."
19:41<Supercheese>yeah, think it's custom town growth (i.e. other climates or game scripts or whatnot)
19:41<Supercheese>also capacity multiplier is different methinks
19:41<Zuu>There is a set of town effects. One of them is called PASSENGERS. Default passengers belong there but NewGRFs can define additional cargos that are included in that town effect.
19:42<Supercheese>^ that
19:42<Core_Xii>ok that I grok
19:42<Core_Xii>can town houses be defined to generate any cargo?
19:42<Supercheese>I haven't tried, but I don't see why not
19:43<Core_Xii>can industry tiles change dynamically based on the industry's production amount?
19:43<Supercheese>I think they can change dynamically based on any available variable
19:43<+glx>houses generate only passenger and mail
19:44<Supercheese>glx: we're talking about newgrf houses
19:44<+glx>me too :)
19:44<Supercheese>that still true in grfs?
19:44<Supercheese>"cargo_production (cargo_type * 256) + amount "
19:44<Supercheese>specify some arbitrary cargo, eh?
19:46<Core_Xii>the wiki doesn't list industry production as a variable that an industry tile can access, as far as I can tell. so I guess it's not possible?
19:46<+glx>hmm maybe callback 2E
19:46<Supercheese>Hmm, maybe the production_level variable is unavailable to tiles
19:47<Supercheese>not sure
19:47<Core_Xii>can industries change layouts dynamically? could hack tile changes in that way perhaps
19:47<+glx>so houses can produce anything
19:48-!-KritiK [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
19:49<Core_Xii>do you foresee any problems if electric rail was available *before* normal rail?
19:57<Supercheese>Probably not technical problems. Might confuse players, though :P
19:59-!-Zuu [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:00<Core_Xii>is there an overview of how NewGRF work? I'm not at all clear how they integrate with the game. they consist of callbacks or something?
20:03<Supercheese>Well, the NewGRF technical discussion has a lot of stuff
20:03<Supercheese>nothing particularly condensed for easy reading
20:04<Core_Xii>is it like data definition, like a markup language, that OpenTTD reads when it needs to, or more like an interpreted programming language?
20:04<Supercheese>They're like add-ons
20:04<Supercheese>Firefox extensions, I guess are somewhat analogous
20:04<+glx>it's a mix of data definition and interpreted language
20:04-!-SpComb [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
20:04<Supercheese>Firefox/Chrome/your favorite browser add-ons
20:05<Core_Xii>ok. so OTTD calls some parts of the NGRF when it does stuff, like generates an industry?
20:05<Supercheese>OTTD loads selected NewGRFs on game start, and those become an integral part of that game (.sav game)
20:05-!-Flygon [] has joined #openttd
20:06<Core_Xii>how does currency conversion work?
20:06<+glx>fixed rate
20:06<Supercheese>Well, I think the GBP is 2x the USD
20:06<Supercheese>which is not very realistic :P
20:06<+glx>and everything is in GBP internally :)
20:06<Supercheese>but yeah, fixed it seems
20:06<Core_Xii>OTTD has an internal currency, right? the same that's exposed to AIs? then the UI converts it for display?
20:07<Core_Xii>I guess you answered those
20:07<Supercheese>as glx said, internal units are the same as the displayed GBP
20:07<Core_Xii>is there any currency with exchange rate less than 1 compared to GBP?
20:07<Supercheese>although I'm taking his word for that, I haven't checked myself :P
20:08<Core_Xii>and if so, how does that currency handle amounts less than 1 GBP?
20:08<+glx>only integer

20:34<Core_Xii>can industries change appearance based on whether they're subsidized?
20:40-!-HerzogDeXtEr [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]

20:51-!-SpComb [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
20:51<+glx>it should be doable by abusing animation frames
20:52<Core_Xii>glx: which thing should be doable?
20:52<Eddi|zuHause>glx: how would an industry learn that it's target of a subsidy?
20:52<Core_Xii>I don't know, callback
20:52<Eddi|zuHause>(unless he meant it's funded by a player)
20:53<Core_Xii>no, meant literal subsidies
20:53<Eddi|zuHause>like i said, i don't recall ever seeing this information being exposed to newgrfs
20:54<+glx>hmm indeed it's not available
20:55<Core_Xii>how does an industry tile decide on its sprite? I don't think I spotted this info on NML:Industries
20:56<Eddi|zuHause>Core_Xii: all items decide its sprites upon the "default" callback in the gaphics section
20:56<Core_Xii>oh... industry property.... layouts? Tilelayout
20:56<Eddi|zuHause>there are "spritelayouts" and such, but i never dealt with those
20:57<Core_Xii>ahh yes I see, default industry tile callback
20:57<Core_Xii>what's the "Sprite layout" return type?
20:57<Eddi|zuHause>a spriteset
20:59<Core_Xii>can an industry tile dynamically compose its appearance from multiple overlapping sprites?
20:59<Core_Xii>so e.g. overlay fences depending on adjacent tiles
21:00<Eddi|zuHause>concerning fences, you might want to check out the "OpenGFX+Landscape" GRF as an example, it has grassland with fences
21:00<Eddi|zuHause>(as objects, but the graphics part should be similar)
21:45<Core_Xii>is there any way to affect cargo payment rate based on which industry it's delivered to?
21:45<Core_Xii>i.e. have two different industries accepting the same cargo, but with differing payment rates

21:46<Core_Xii>can an industry accept AND produce the SAME cargo?
21:53-!-cyph3r [] has quit [Quit: Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.]
21:56<Eddi|zuHause>yes, e.g. the bank in the default industries
21:57<Core_Xii>oh yea. cargo tracks where it came from, so you can't just transport it right back to its source, correct?
21:58<Eddi|zuHause>it only tracks which station it was loaded from
21:58<Eddi|zuHause>so you can't unload it at the same station
21:58-!-pugi [] has quit []
21:59<Core_Xii>so you could have two stations at the same bank, transporting valuables from one to the other? :P
21:59<Eddi|zuHause>i vaguely remember reading something about a minimum distance travelled, or you wouldn't get paid, but i have never tested thaqt
