05:14<peter1139>write it in nfo
05:15<andythenorth>good idea
05:15<andythenorth>I am considering converting it back :P
05:15<@Alberth>hi andy, peter
05:16<andythenorth>hmm. I could have my python script do loads of nfo magic
05:16<andythenorth>it might take 1m 28s though :P

06:44<andythenorth>FIRS html docs are 745KB, should I ship them with the grf?
06:44<andythenorth>the grf is 3.3MB
06:44<andythenorth>who pays bandwidth around here? :o
06:45<V453000>some andythenorth does
06:45<V453000>not sure if he is aware of it though, he has slight debt
06:46<andythenorth>€1 per download
06:47<andythenorth>I owe ottd €1.06m
06:47<Ammler>745kB compressed? :-o
06:47<andythenorth>maybe not compressed
06:47<andythenorth>let's see
06:47<Wolf01>how do you come to have 745KB of html? what did you put in it?
06:48<Ammler>images, I would guess
06:48<andythenorth>408KB compressed
06:48<andythenorth>but I can compress the images more
06:48<@Alberth>"please transfer €0.10 to unlock the next industry" :)
06:48<andythenorth>"premium subscriptions"
06:48<andythenorth>€2 / month
06:49<andythenorth>€1 to paypal, the rest to ottd :P
06:49<andythenorth>access to all grfs instantly
06:49<andythenorth>otherwise 30 day delay :P
06:49<Ammler>maybe simply make 2 bundles, no need to add it to the bananas bundle
06:49<andythenorth>new make target? bananas?
06:49<Ammler>hmm, maybe also no need to bundle it at all...
06:49<@Alberth>make bananas sounds good :)
06:50<Wolf01>I hate the pay-to-win model and all the micro-transactions to unlock something, I feel more convenient to purchase a game for 50€ and already have all instead of paying it 30€ and still have to pay to unlock everything
06:50<Ammler>tasty :-)
06:50*andythenorth has a headache with the makefile
06:50<@Alberth>Wolf01: indeed, I would not pay
06:50<andythenorth>it has very little idea about deps :P
06:50<andythenorth>so either makes nothing, or everything
06:50<andythenorth>I guess I broke it
06:50<Ammler>Wolf01: as long as they sell a bundle, I do not really care, some people like to pay less
06:52<andythenorth>'upgrade FIRS makefile' would be a nice project for someone :)
06:52<Ammler>I never got, why someone would pay for additional downloads like more/better weapons or alternative look
06:52<LordAro>apparently, people do
06:53<LordAro>unfortunately for those of us who dislike it
06:53<LordAro>people are stupid
06:53<Ammler>well, that is the advantage you don't need to buy it
06:54<Ammler>IMO, it is most silly to buy seomthing to make a game easier (better weapons)
06:58<LordAro>surprise! people like to cheat if you give them the chance :)
06:59<Wolf01>I did it twice, just to find out that I can live without it since most of the times there are only cosmetical changes, but on DarkSiders2 I was really satisfied (but I had to purchase all the DLCs to find out which armor is more suitable to my play style)
07:03<V453000>cosmetic changes are fun :)
07:03-!-KouDy [~KouDy@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
07:03<Wolf01>yeah, but pnly if they are free
07:04-!-KouDy [~KouDy@] has joined #openttd
07:04<LordAro>did someone mention hats?
07:04<V453000>well they can be hard to get in the game over time, or quickly purchaseable
07:06<V453000>I like how heroes of newerth is doing it, they just let you get "silver coins" where a cosmetic change can cost from 500 to 3000 of them. 3000 new, 500 older ones. You can purchase them with real money or gather silver coins slowly, and even better if you just wait or dont have the silver, it will get cheap sooner or later :)
07:06<andythenorth>new FIRS
07:06<andythenorth>nothing much changed
07:07*andythenorth needs bug reports ahead know...1.0
07:09-!-KouDy1 [~KouDy@] has joined #openttd
07:10<V453000>how to add 10k lines of code within 24 hours

07:26<andythenorth>check devzone commit :P
07:31<frosch123>moin :)
07:31<V453000>andythenorth: pigs at orchard? :D
07:31<V453000>like on trees? :D
07:32<@Alberth>pigs are too heavy for that :)
07:35<andythenorth>seems to be just a uk thing :P
07:35<andythenorth>pigs are standard here in orchards :P
07:36<V453000>I want my own pig-tree too :(
07:36<V453000>Alberth: your argument is invalid, pigs can flu
07:39<frosch123>at least pigs with a horn
07:45<V453000>p.s. feeding me with retarded ideas might not be the best thing to do as I am in a very April mood >:D
07:48-!-HerzogDeXtEr [] has joined #openttd
07:48<V453000>only thing saving the current situation is that I cant seem to fit a tree on a wagon, especially not to fit a unihorned pig on it afterwards

08:47*andythenorth cuts 200KB of FIRS docs
08:50<@Rubidium>because openttd doesn't have a html renderer yet, right?
08:56<andythenorth>and to save you / us bandwidth :P
08:56<andythenorth>all that changed is I cut down the palette in ~55 images
08:56<andythenorth>surprising difference in file size :P

09:00<alandarev>andythenorth: any idea where I can see cargo ID's for FIRS?
09:01<andythenorth>funny you should ask
09:01<andythenorth>^ that's new
09:01*andythenorth is pleased it has a purpose
09:01<andythenorth>alandarev: let me know if you can find them :P
09:01<andythenorth>they're in there
09:02<alandarev>andythenorth: yah I am surfing this page for a couple of minutes :D I ggot here: but there are no ID's given
09:02<andythenorth>look in code reference
09:02<alandarev>ah :D sweet
09:02<alandarev>thanks and well done on docs :)
09:02<andythenorth>what are you going to use the IDs for?
09:03<alandarev>andythenorth: have some fun in playing FIRS + CityBuilder GS
09:05<alandarev>I so wan someone making NewGRX which would change profit from cargo delivery not on the distance between stations but distance to nearest source
09:05<alandarev>should probably post it on forum maybe someone is interested in
09:12<alandarev>can I use ctrl when pressing duplicate vehicle to apply Shared Orders logics?
09:12<@Alberth>tias :)
09:14<andythenorth>what are official names of Tropic, Arctic etc?

10:30<__ln__>ummmm... what happens if i clone a Windows 7 installation from a 512-b HDD to a 4k HDD?
10:30<__ln__>using dd
10:33<alandarev>(my) New suggestion:
10:35<TinoDidriksen>__ln__, dunno, but if dd fails there's ntfsclone (which is superior anyway).
10:35<V453000>it isnt newGRX and I doubt newGRF can actually do that
10:35<alandarev>V453000: awh :(
10:36<V453000>the only thing newGRF can define in cargo is cargo multiplier cost, and decay rate I think ... I might be wrong though
10:36<V453000>cost related that is
10:37<alandarev>V453000: i think someone metioned two days ago that new versions allow control of costs calculation
10:45<andythenorth>there is a cb for custom profit calculation

12:20<LordAro>what is you lot's thoughts on cmake ?
12:23<__ln__>it causes as much trouble as it solves
12:24<+michi_cc>Rather useless as long as e.g. a cygwin compiled cmake binary will only produce cygwin makefiles and an MSVC compiled cmake only MSVC project files. Who thought of crap like this?

14:24<alandarev>suggest me interesting Industry NewGRX's to play please :)
14:31<@Alberth>there are 4: the default industries, opengfx+industries, FIRS, and ECS
14:31<alandarev>Alberth: what is that recent PBI or something?
14:32<@Alberth>oh, that could be one too, sorry pikka
14:32<@Alberth>I never tried that one
14:32<alandarev>Alberth: what it's name? I can't find in bananas
14:33<@Alberth>pikkas basic industries iirc
14:34<alandarev>not in the list :( Also is column Downloads glitched? FIRS was downloaded only 147 times, I hardly believe it comapred to some 20k downloads of Cars Sets
14:34-!-Devroush [] has quit []
14:34<@Alberth>FIRS got a new version today
14:35<@Alberth>big download counts usually mean the set has not been touched for a long time
14:35<@Alberth>too many people download everything instead of just what they need
14:36<@Alberth>have a look at the download count of the "staircase" heightmap. I uploaded as a testmap, it is absolutely useless for playing
14:36<@Alberth>I didn't advertise it anywhere :)
14:36<alandarev>Alberth: oh, new version = downloads counter reset?
14:37<@Alberth>alandarev: not sure. Either that, or it starts a new count for each version
14:37<alandarev>Alberth: lol at staircase :D
14:37<@Alberth>ie older versions are still there, for people playing old versions
14:38<@Alberth>so I guess those versions still have a count
14:38<+michi_cc>Each version has its own download count IIRC and the web interface only shows the data for the most recent one.
14:38<alandarev>sweet, thanks for explaining. but I so want some sort of "rating" sorted NewGRF'es
14:38<@Alberth>we all do
14:39<@Alberth>got some time on your hand to build us a nice rating system?
14:39<alandarev>Alberth: downloads count kind of one of those, if they did not reset...
14:39<@Alberth>nah, too many false positives
14:40<alandarev>Alberth: certainly, but still better than nothing ;-)
14:40<+michi_cc>alandarev: Not at all, because apparently it is a mortal sin to not download everything you can see.
14:40<alandarev>michi_cc: okay, then simple 5 star rating could help us
14:41<@Alberth>I'd bet that over 50% of the downloads are never ever used in a game
14:41<+michi_cc>I.e. the download count is quite proportional to the time the file is online.
14:43<alandarev>Experts hard - industries 0.4 193171 times < as an example No description, no readme, no link to a topic. wtf it does??

16:44-!-ntoskrnl [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
16:47<andythenorth>alandarev: code a power station
16:49<alandarev>andythenorth: not a coder :( I can not find Gasoline Cargo ID in
16:49<andythenorth>alandarev: everyone starts coding somewhere ;)
16:55<alandarev>andythenorth: A bit of settings tweaking and I can start having some challenge :D
16:56<alandarev>andythenorth: if you could help me I don't mind coding power station... But I really can not dedicated many days into this which would require if doing alone
16:56<andythenorth>there are others who want the power station too
16:56<andythenorth>@seen supercheese
16:56<@DorpsGek>andythenorth: supercheese was last seen in #openttd 5 days, 22 hours, 42 minutes, and 13 seconds ago: <Supercheese> i.e. you can deliver cargo even if not directly in the catchment, or some such
16:56<andythenorth>@seen flherne
16:56<@DorpsGek>andythenorth: flherne was last seen in #openttd 1 week, 3 days, 21 hours, 2 minutes, and 23 seconds ago: <FLHerne> TBH, most patches I've seen/poked just seem to use 200 for the save version...
16:57<alandarev>andythenorth: see, then you definitely should consider doing it :) and I am even offering to do some work on it
16:57<andythenorth>not for me :)
16:58<alandarev>oww :(
17:01<alandarev>andythenorth: can you clear few things out for me? 1. Gas Stations, Builders Yard, Hardware Store can consume as much resource as I deliver? 2. Primary Industries close down? Can I prevent it from happening? I don't feel like it is needed in a city builder game?
17:01<andythenorth>1. yes 2. no they don't
17:02<alandarev>oh then it sounds like it perfectly fits into my city builder script, only thing I would love is power station :)
17:05<alandarev>I see there is a i_powerstation.pnfo file in source
17:11<andythenorth>that is probably not much use :)
17:12<andythenorth>you could do this with a simple nml-based newgrf, that just turns on the default power station
17:13<alandarev>going through eGRVT set, how come 2 horses carriage have 10hp? :DDD
17:13<alandarev>and 4 horses have same 10hp but just max speed from 20km to 26km :D
17:15<@Rubidium>the same reason a small airport is only 12 times bigger than a bus stop

20:33<XziDesk>hey guys, i disabled vehicle breakdown in openttd.cfg but the settings aren't being applied to the game
20:33<XziDesk>they remain at Reduced
20:39<valhallasw>XziDesk: those are just the standard settings for a new game; you need to set them in the game itself if you're continueing a game
20:40<XziDesk>this is on a dedicated server in windows
20:40<XziDesk>where would i change it on a map that's already running?
20:41<valhallasw>I think it's also possible using the command window (but I'm not sure how); the easiest might be loading the savegame, opening it in a normal game, changing the settings, saving the map again and loading it in the server
20:42<XziDesk>would that mess up the existing companies?
20:43<valhallasw>I don't think so, but I wouldn't dare to guarantee it
20:43<XziDesk>alright, i'll give it a try on an autosave
20:43<valhallasw>see on how to do it using rcon
20:44<valhallasw>rcon password "set breakdowns 0"
20:44<valhallasw>according to
