06:03<andythenorth>anyone find FIRS games take 10 mins for map gen? (1024x1024) ?
06:06<juzza1>inspired by the forum post i tested it, 2048x2048 took about 20 seconds
06:06<lugo>not me, and i have a quite old notebook (1,3ghz single core), takes about a minute

06:13-!-Alice3 [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
06:20<kero>andythenorth absolutely not. Some second here (coulnd't tell exactly)
06:20<kero>he probably has some specific problem
06:22<__ln__>what would be an interesting place to spend ~3 days in central germany?
06:22<kero>Wurzburg is nice
06:23<kero>There's a nice episcopal palace to visit, and there is good wine :)
06:24<__ln__>ok, that is a possibility.
06:26<kero>Bamberg is also probably pretty, but i've never been
06:31<__ln__>any opinions on Wuppertal?
06:35<andythenorth>got a monorail
06:39<__ln__>yes, i've tested that and it was cool, but i don't really remember anything else of the city.
06:44<kero>I don't know Wuppertal, but I've heard nice things about Köln, which is quite near
06:50<andythenorth>I like Cologne a lot
06:51<andythenorth>big cathedral
06:52<kero>yeah it's a known one
07:06<Eddi|zuHause>you can find things to visit in any medium sized city
07:07<Eddi|zuHause>and neither Köln nor Würzburg are in "central germany" :p
07:07<Eddi|zuHause>the "center" of germany is probably around Erfurt
07:08<Eddi|zuHause>you can walk from braunschweig to erfurt, that should take roughly 3 days :p
07:10-!-oskari89 [] has joined #openttd
07:11<__ln__>that would actually be interesting :)
07:12<@planetmaker>3 days, Eddi|zuHause ?
07:12<Eddi|zuHause>google says 35 hours, so if you walk 12 hours a day
07:12<@planetmaker>you're a quick walker
07:12<@planetmaker>and you walk 12 hours a day?
07:12<Eddi|zuHause>i'm not crazy :p
07:12<@planetmaker>you haven't done a lot of hiking, did you?
07:12<+tokai|noir>Eddi|zuHause: Niederdorla claims to be the center of Germany :)
07:13<+tokai|noir>Not too far from here, I can easily reach it with bike in few hours. :)
07:13<@planetmaker>many places claim that. with different reasons and different... quality of claims
07:15<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: anyway, my father has this project where he wants to walk from Nordhausen to Ilsenburg in 1 days, but he never fully succeeded
07:16<+tokai|noir>planetmaker: From my point of view the center is always under my feet. From there I can look all around. :)
07:16<Eddi|zuHause>i'm not that fond of hiking myself :)
07:16<@planetmaker>tokai|noir, there we agree. Only on the definition of "my" we differ :-)
07:17<andythenorth>must be weird living in the middle of a large landmass
07:17*andythenorth is 5 miles from the sea and prefers it that way
07:17<andythenorth>sea / big muddy estuary /s
07:17<kero>where ?
07:18<kero>if it's not to personal question :)
07:18<+tokai|noir>andythenorth: Still better in the mid of Germany or Europe than in the mid of the Sahara, Gobi or Siberia (though Siberia probably has its charm :) )
07:20<Eddi|zuHause>there was this story a while back about a russian family who lived for decades in an otherwise uninhabited stretch of mountains in sibiria
07:21<Eddi|zuHause>they had no contact with other humans fromt he mid-40s to like the 80s, when some geological survey group stumbled upon them
07:23<+tokai|noir>Sounds like those cases of Japanese soldiers who protected some small islands by themselves years after Word War II. :)
07:24<Eddi|zuHause>not entirely.
07:24<Eddi|zuHause>originally the family fled from religious suppression

11:39<Mazur>Is there a shortcut to select a type of rail when building rail?
11:40<Mazur>And why not?
11:42<@planetmaker>there's a setting for 'last used' 'most used' and maybe it also has the option 'first available'
11:43<Mazur>Yeah, I´m working with two types at the same time.
11:44<Mazur>Maglev for Pax and electrified for freight.

13:55<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause can you recall what we think is slow about nml compiles? Is it walking all the switches to resolve identifiers down to bytes?
13:55<andythenorth>I recall that being discussed
13:56<Eddi|zuHause>i don't know anymore, i circumvented all parts of nml except reading in the parse tree (ply)
13:57<Eddi|zuHause>expression resolving (operators, etc.) was also really slow
13:58<Eddi|zuHause>so i put all template offset calculations into the python steop
13:58<andythenorth>that's interesting
13:58<Eddi|zuHause>writing the graphics wasn't fast either
13:58<andythenorth>iirc the spritecache sped that up?
13:58<Eddi|zuHause>but i now use grfcodec for that
13:58-!-kero [] has quit [Quit: kero]
13:59<Eddi|zuHause>so i can't really say whether the cache helped
13:59<andythenorth>maybe I should change the pipeline and put grfcodec in it
13:59<Eddi|zuHause>maybe you should change your workflow so you don't do "make clean" every time :p

14:03-!-ZxBiohazardZx [] has joined #openttd
14:03<andythenorth>I did :P
14:04<Eddi|zuHause>what was also slow was that the dep run basically did everything twice, so i completely removed that and wrote the deps from the python step as well
14:05<Eddi|zuHause>the dep run reads through the nml file and outputs all used graphics files
14:05<andythenorth>I wonder if planetmaker changed that
14:05<andythenorth>I don't think I see that happen anymore
14:06<Eddi|zuHause>since i know in the python step which graphics files i put in there, i can use that information right there to generate the deps file
14:06<andythenorth>I could do that too :P
14:06<andythenorth>2m24 to compile FIRS
14:06<andythenorth>better than 3m, but not great
14:06<andythenorth>nfo FIRS was ~20s :(
14:07<andythenorth>still, means I get to watch a lot of YT :P
14:07<Eddi|zuHause>CETS is more like 17m (but -j6 able, so 17/6 'real' time)
14:08<andythenorth>I could put python multiprocessing on the preprocess step
14:08<andythenorth>that would get me maybe a 3x increase
14:08<@planetmaker>in the newest versions I removed that, yes
14:08<andythenorth>so I might save 2s :P
14:09<Eddi|zuHause>you removed the deps run from the makefile?
14:09<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: so is resolving expressions like this believed slow?
14:09<andythenorth> hide_sprite: (climate != CLIMATE_ARCTIC) || (climate == CLIMATE_ARCTIC) && ((nearby_tile_height(0, 0) < (snowline_height - 1)) || (nearby_tile_height(0, 0) >= (snowline_height + 0)));
14:10<andythenorth>I have a crapload of those :P
14:10<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: possible, but those are expressions you can't simplify. i had lots of expressions (a+2*b+x-y) which gave a compile-time result
14:11<andythenorth>where it's obvious to me, I do that in python too
14:11<@planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause, yes, I did
14:11<andythenorth>I wonder if I should just write myself a more complicated preprocessor
14:11<@planetmaker>it's only used, if you use graphics generation
14:11<andythenorth>so I can compile individual industries with a parameter
14:11<@planetmaker>but then also in a different manner which does not need creating the nml first
14:11<andythenorth>can python do conditional imports?
14:12<andythenorth>I bet it can :P
14:12<Eddi|zuHause>if <condition>: import blah
14:12<Eddi|zuHause>yes, that should be possible
14:12<@planetmaker>andythenorth, #ifdef PARAMETER
14:12<@planetmaker>#include blah.pnml
14:13<andythenorth>ho, that's interesting
14:13<andythenorth>I generate the pnml file with the includes
14:13<Eddi|zuHause>it's "#endif" :p
14:13<andythenorth>so I could do that
14:13<@planetmaker>ok, #endif
14:14<andythenorth>the problem is that industries reference each other
14:14<andythenorth>which is explodey for partial compiles
14:14<andythenorth>but I could also fix that
14:15<andythenorth>planetmaker: two extra lines around L33 here :P
14:15<andythenorth>doesn't solve the industries referencing each other
14:16<andythenorth>then teach the makefile about a parameter
14:16-!-Wolf01 [] has joined #openttd
14:16<@planetmaker>no need
14:16<@planetmaker>make -DPARAMETER=XX
14:16<andythenorth>a single industry is a 20s compile
14:17<@planetmaker>hm... but might need for the gcc options
14:17<andythenorth>much better when all I want to do is fix graphics etc
14:17<andythenorth>I might do this
14:18<andythenorth>hmm. An industry with simple graphics is ~10s to compile
14:29<andythenorth>so I'd need to wrap #ifdef around the neighbouring industry check for every industry
14:30<__ln__>hi Wolf01
14:30<ZxBiohazardZx>in cargodest
14:30<ZxBiohazardZx>when sorting
14:30<ZxBiohazardZx>i have "Sort By v "
14:30<ZxBiohazardZx>Station: Waiting
14:30<ZxBiohazardZx>Group by "Via-Destination-Source"
14:31<ZxBiohazardZx>why can i not sort it by "ammount" via ?
14:31<ZxBiohazardZx>ah nvm
14:31<ZxBiohazardZx>found :p
14:31<ZxBiohazardZx>ammount: waiting :P
14:31<andythenorth>is it bad to litter my code with conditionals that only exist for optimising compile times?

20:33-!-Eddi|zuHause2 is now known as Eddi|zuHause
20:33<Eddi|zuHause>you can set the toolbar to left or right alignment
20:35<Eddi|zuHause>there once was a hacky patch that forced the "center" alignment to only use half the window width, to help with dualscreen (assuming two same size screens)
20:35<TomyLobo>ok, i'll look for that option :)
