02:54<waterfoul>I've built a cyclotron and the signals seem to be working correctly but instead of the train going around and the train manintaining speed it stops. any ideas?
02:56<V453000>yeah, apart from cyclotrons being stupid and useless, you can still either enable 2way eol setting, or stop building them :P or both!
02:56<V453000>both is the best option
02:56<Eddi|zuHause>coop stuff silently assumes that you enabled the hidden setting "pf.yapf.rail_two_way_eol"
02:57<waterfoul>ok, I've got a merge that keeps slowing down the main line because the train isn't ar top speed, any better suggestions to fix this?
02:57<V453000>it is actually mentioned on some pages Eddi
02:58<V453000>yeah add another line waterfoul
02:59<Eddi|zuHause>the setting is actually silly, as most stuff you can build in a way that it works without this setting
02:59<waterfoul>any docs on the setting? my googlefu is failing
03:00<Eddi|zuHause>you change hidden settings on the console
03:00<waterfoul>right but before I change it I want to know what it does
03:00<Eddi|zuHause>or in the openttd.cfg (won't apply to your savegame)
03:00<V453000>most stuff == with idiotic pathfinding penalty counting and poor reliability (recounting values upon edits?), not to mention that some things like mainly the key sending trains to dead ends is not possible I think
03:00<V453000>so yeah
03:01<V453000>btw Eddi I am fairly confident that cyclotron isnt quite "a coop thing"
03:02<V453000>for one because it isnt really useful for bigger networks
03:02<V453000>people lazy to add more lines just use it in hope that it will be enough to improve their one line
03:02<V453000>which isnt exactly the fitting logic :P
03:02<Eddi|zuHause>V453000: don't challenge my prejudices!
03:03<V453000>!! :D
03:03<waterfoul>right but the side line isn't injecting enough traffic to warrant a mainline, I was just after merging at top speed
03:03<V453000>in fact cyclotron doesnt even seem to exist on our wiki :D
03:04<V453000>get better accelerating trains waterfoul :)
03:04<waterfoul>using the LEV4
03:04<V453000>yeah thats about the worst you can get
03:04<waterfoul>are any of the other levs better?
03:04<V453000>lev3 accelerates considerably better
03:04<V453000>for one because it is half the length so you can use more of them
03:05<V453000>aaaaand they are slower so they reach the top speed quicker
03:05<V453000>obviously SH40 is even better in acceleration but kind of boring to use that slow train :)
03:05<V453000>perhaps try some train set
03:05<Eddi|zuHause>i thought you'd answer like "use the slugs!" :p
03:05<V453000>nay :D
03:06<Eddi|zuHause>use CETS (but that doesn't have any fast freight wagons)
03:06<Eddi|zuHause>(nor any maglev)
03:06<V453000>nor anything else almost? :D
03:06<V453000>or NUTS, it has everything :P
03:07<Eddi|zuHause>it has about 1000 engines :p
03:07<V453000>without sprites (.
03:07<Eddi|zuHause>it has coloured boxes now, instead of green boxes
03:07<V453000>thats pretty much what my steamer tenders look like right now :D
03:08*andythenorth reads up
03:09<andythenorth>isn't the most efficient route one line per train?
03:09<andythenorth>that avoids all this merging crap and such
03:09<andythenorth>that's how I play when I care about speed
03:09<Eddi|zuHause>that also severely limits your capacity per space
03:09<V453000>andythenorth please :D
03:14<andythenorth>so with YACD, the best pax networks (especially at game start) are dense clusters
03:14<andythenorth>and adding more nearby nodes is good, even if they are small villages
03:14<andythenorth>does the same apply for cdist?
03:15<andythenorth>also how do I figure out where passengers want to go?
03:15<andythenorth>YACD tells me the destinations, including unmet demand
03:17<Eddi|zuHause>cargodist plays much different, it doesn't force you to cover all sources/destinations
03:18<V453000>cargodist doesnt force you to use cargodist, its perfect :D
03:18<Eddi|zuHause>in yacd this is a real hassle in the early game with lots of different industries/cargos
03:18<V453000>in yacd the easiest AND best network = web of stations, no junctions, just station---station connections
03:19<andythenorth>so I have 4 nodes connected in my pax network. But how do I know which to connect next?
03:19<V453000>mainly because stations solve all the redistribution, not to mention the "local destinations"
03:19<V453000>any :D
03:20*andythenorth wonders where passengers are going
03:20<andythenorth>everything is 'via'
03:20-!-Tom_Soft [~id@] has joined #openttd
03:20<andythenorth>I don't get how people can demand to go 'via'
03:20<Eddi|zuHause>click on "via-destination-source" and change that to "destination-via-source"
03:21<andythenorth>that makes more sense
03:21<andythenorth>oh but I still have to build the routes 'via'
03:21<andythenorth>so just adding more capacity to the destination is no good?
03:22<Eddi|zuHause>"via" is which next stop they take
03:22<andythenorth>why is the demand expressed for routing, not for destination? o_O
03:22<Eddi|zuHause>this can be used to find bottlenecks in your network
03:22*andythenorth is very confused
03:22-!-Pensacola [] has joined #openttd
03:23<andythenorth>does cdist even have a concept of demand?
03:23<Eddi|zuHause>if your train has not enough capacity, people pile up for "via" while they may have lots of different "destinations"
03:23<andythenorth>is my thinking faulty?
03:23<Eddi|zuHause>yes. demand is fixed
03:23<Eddi|zuHause>demand is calculated on distance
03:24<Eddi|zuHause>i.e. if you connect two power stations to one coal mine, the closer one will get more cargo
03:24<Eddi|zuHause>for symmetric cargos like passengers, demand equals production
03:26<andythenorth>so how do I see demand? So I know which routes to build?
03:26<andythenorth>I can't see any demand view
03:27<Eddi|zuHause>in cargodist there is no demand before you make a route
03:27<andythenorth>so I have to build the route to create demand?
03:27<V453000>turning cargodist off is always a solution andythenorth :P
03:28<andythenorth>so if I add a node to my small pax network, the other vehicles will make less money?
03:29<andythenorth>as some of their pax cargos will be re-routed to the new node?
03:29<Eddi|zuHause>no-ish, because the cargo from the new node, plus the increased distance, may generate more income overall

04:34<andythenorth>when are flat docks being added? :(
04:34<andythenorth>construction for river docks is stupid
04:36<V453000>train stations are flat?
04:37<V453000>remove ships \o/
04:38<andythenorth>V453000: I like your thinking
04:38<andythenorth>I think it is practical, and gets stuff done
04:38<V453000>see :D
04:39<V453000>oh yeah and I just discovered that my templates seem to have one of the / \ directions a thing moved 2px horizontally, 1px vertically :D so it isnt a problem but it isnt symmetrical :D
04:43-!-DDR [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
04:43<@Alberth>nobody will notice :)
04:44<V453000>sure, people wont, I very do when I try to align two templates together XD
04:45<@planetmaker>^ reason enough to fix probably :D
04:45<V453000>exactly :D
04:45<V453000>but sometime later :d
04:45<V453000>everything is "working" atm :D
04:45<V453000>the "" is strong :D
04:48<V453000>I can always blame andythenorth anyway
04:48-!-adf88 [] has joined #openttd
05:00<andythenorth>I should have put a GS in this game
05:00<andythenorth>sandbox is so boring
05:00<V453000>play the game instead of wishing for wtf features :P
05:00<V453000>is my GS :P
05:01<andythenorth>how do you avoid being bored?
05:01<andythenorth>I've connected a few towns, now it's 'meh'
05:02-!-valhallasw [] has joined #openttd
05:04<@Alberth>then you're done; you don't need to play the game until the year 5000000
05:05<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: you try transporting ALL the passengers it throws at you
05:06<V453000>idk how you managed to do that andy, but I generally have serious traffic problems after like 2-4 years of playing and need to expand many tracks alrey
05:07<V453000>PERHAPS you are playing with the WRONG newGRFs? :D :P
05:08-!-KritiK [] has joined #openttd
05:12<andythenorth>I have 1 line per train, what kind of traffic problems can happen there? :)
05:19<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: the "traffic problems" are "can't carry all cargo"
05:20<andythenorth>I think I should stp
05:20<andythenorth>I think I should stop playing 'full' FIRS
05:20-!-oskari89 [] has joined #openttd
05:20<andythenorth>too much choice, not enough high volumes of same cargo
05:22<V453000>oh yeah until you supply firs very quickly, it gets boring super fast
05:22<V453000>I am still saying that original/opengfx+ industries are best and most fun for playing :)
05:22<Eddi|zuHause>i wouldn't know, i get too meddled up with serving passengers to really take care of cargo
05:22<andythenorth>also in 1870, everything takes so long to arrive
05:23<andythenorth>building long routes is meh
05:23<andythenorth>so can only connect nearby industries
05:23<andythenorth>and there are no RVs
05:23<andythenorth>nor planes
05:24<@planetmaker>you definitely need to play with egrvts2 horses then or so :-)
05:24<V453000>andy go use nuts or else :P

05:47<@Alberth>works too :)
05:49-!-TomyLobo [] has joined #openttd

06:02<@peter1138>Probably not OpenTTD...
06:03<LordAro>you can play that?
06:04<LordAro>peter1138: KSP is always good fun
06:04*andythenorth plays a lot of Dice Wars
06:04<LordAro>if only my screen didn't freeze every time i played it...
06:04<@peter1138>I only have the demo of KSP.
06:05<andythenorth>I should have turned off rivers in this game
06:05<andythenorth>rivers are misleading

06:19<LordAro>you don't?
06:19<andythenorth>ships are borked, I'm deleting this one
06:20<andythenorth>it's too boring to figure this crap out
06:20-!-adf88 [] has quit []
06:21<andythenorth>prize for 'most wanted, most discussed, but most useless feature' goes to rivers
06:22<Eddi|zuHause>only if you do it wrong
06:24<V453000>andythenorth discovered this game has trains
06:24<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: I don't understand how to do it right
06:24<andythenorth>where are the docs?
06:24<andythenorth>all I can find in wiki is this
06:25-!-Japa_ [~Japa@] has joined #openttd
06:25<andythenorth>I get other results, but nothing useful
06:30<andythenorth>I do have friends who think 'figuring out the bugs in the implementation' makes a good game
06:30<andythenorth>I am not made that way :(
06:31<andythenorth>is 90' turns now a cfg only setting? Or am I just missing it?
06:31<LordAro>andythenorth: might be in expert settings
06:31<@planetmaker>advanced settings in GUI
06:31<LordAro>try searching
06:32<andythenorth>I did already :P
06:32-!-Japa [~Japa@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

06:33<andythenorth>thanks :D
06:34-!-roadt_ [~roadt@] has joined #openttd
06:35<@planetmaker>you need two times 'all', on each axis once
06:35<andythenorth>why do we forbid 90' turns for ships? Is there some bug related to it?
06:35-!-frosch123 [] has joined #openttd
06:35<@planetmaker>probably it only looks foolish. Like it does for trains, too
06:39<andythenorth>routing on rivers is pretty borked with 90' forbidden
06:40<Eddi|zuHause>it's even worse with original pathfinder :p
06:42<andythenorth>maybe I should try it :)
06:42<andythenorth>I haven't had much to complain about today
06:45<frosch123>just make sure there is a buoy every 4 turns

08:47<Stimrol>Hello, I am starting openttd 1.3.3. and it always crashes with three top lines "no protocol specified" anyone know what this could be?
08:49<Stimrol>It works to start a server with autopilot
08:50<@planetmaker>did you build that openttd yourself?
08:50<@planetmaker>what OS do you run and how do you start that openttd?
08:52<Stimrol>no I dl the generic binaries for 64bit, I use ubuntu 13.04
08:53<@planetmaker>and you try to start openttd so you can normally play on your desktop?
08:53<@planetmaker>might be that ubuntu removed support for X-windows
08:53<Stimrol>start it with ./openttd that crashes but I can start the server with ./autopilot.tcl
08:53<@planetmaker>and uses now its own display server
08:53<@planetmaker>just a random guess, though
08:54<Stimrol>no they havent :) (jet)
08:56<Stimrol>I think I know what is wrong. This is my fault. I copied the files to another user because I run a server, but I am guessing that this user doesn't have access to my particular window session
08:56<@planetmaker>^ wanted to suggest that :-)
08:56<Stimrol>I have to log in as to the session as that user.
08:56<@planetmaker>or export your display
08:56<LordAro>planetmaker: iirc, they didn't remove X in 13.04
08:57<@peter1138>Nor 13.10
08:57<@planetmaker>export DISPLAY=localhost:0.0

11:07<andythenorth>can I check for 90' being on, from a grf?
11:09<@planetmaker>you can't
11:09<andythenorth>action D can't do it?
11:09<andythenorth>appears not
11:09<@planetmaker> <-- doesn't list it
11:10<andythenorth>oh well :(
11:10<@planetmaker>why would a NewGRF care about *path finder* settings?
11:11<andythenorth>I wanted to disable river ships if 90' is turned on
11:11<andythenorth>(disable 90')

12:23<frosch123>andythenorth: yes, window size and sticky state
12:23<andythenorth>it's really nice
12:23<andythenorth>saves lives
12:25<frosch123>i think it was based on suggestion forum discussion which annoyed me
12:27<frosch123>people getting lost in saving window positions in save games and such, while default size is way easier
12:33<andythenorth>default ftw
12:33<andythenorth>removes a large set of tiny irritations
12:49<andythenorth>is it now recommended to use explicit orders for servicing?
12:50<@planetmaker>depends on what you want. But I'd recommend that as you better control where the train goes without network considerations
12:50<@planetmaker>otherwise you need to know the look-ahead length for finding a depot.
12:50<andythenorth>how would I find that out?
12:50<@planetmaker>Or need to place depots *before* branches instead of after
12:51<andythenorth>I used to have success placing a PBS signal 1 tile before depot
12:51<andythenorth>but that no longer seems to work
12:51<@planetmaker>find out what? The look-ahead for depots is iirc around 20 tiles
12:51<andythenorth>I have trains on 70 day servicing that haven't serviced for 2 years
12:51<andythenorth>they drive straight past depots
12:51<@planetmaker>they only look for a depot occasionally
12:54<andythenorth>I don't know how I'd play this game without being in this channel :)

13:16<andythenorth>this dock-with-an-entrance-lock isn't so bad
13:23<andythenorth>if I have two steel mills close to each other, and lots of iron and coal mines, is it cheating to deliver to both mills?
13:23<@planetmaker>how is that cheating?
13:23-!-retro|cz [] has joined #openttd
13:24<@planetmaker>it's more difficult to deliver to both
13:24<andythenorth>I find delivering all to one harder
13:24<andythenorth>more congested stations
13:24<andythenorth>already I'm cheating by using boats
13:24<andythenorth>GS idea
13:25<andythenorth>for 3 types of industry, achieve a minimum production level at each
13:25<andythenorth>think of it as inverse Silicon Valley
13:25<andythenorth>frosch123: can I tempt you? o_O ^
13:26<andythenorth>(for all instances of the type on the map)
13:28<frosch123>how do you achieve a minimum production level?
13:28<frosch123>win at game start?
13:29<frosch123>[19:02] <andythenorth> yogscast live near me <- what does that mean? yes, they live in britain :p
13:29<frosch123>or did you just meet your neighbours? :p
13:29<andythenorth>frosch123: kind of :)
13:29<andythenorth>I didn't meet yogscast
13:30<andythenorth>anyway - minimum = target
13:30<andythenorth>i.e. achieve x output per month
13:30<frosch123>so, maximum production overall while minimum production per single industry?
13:30<frosch123>maximum distribution?
13:31<andythenorth>could be
13:31<andythenorth>I was thinking something simple like 'every steel mill on the map must produce at least 200t per month'
13:31<andythenorth>or such
13:32<andythenorth>there's some detail about industry closure and other nonsense
13:32<frosch123>maximise the production of the industry with least production?
13:32<frosch123>so, boost one industry, then magic bulldoze other instances? :p
13:33<andythenorth>he he
13:34<andythenorth>ok, so maybe there's an easy win condition
13:34<andythenorth>at least n instances?
13:34<andythenorth>it's basically SV, but distributed
13:34<frosch123>so, sillicon valley, but without the town restriction?
13:34<andythenorth>kind of yes
13:35<andythenorth>easy way to think of it

14:24<@Alberth>playing a new game?
14:24<andythenorth>frosch123: are you +1 or -1 to a GS that is basically tied to FIRS (as an idea?)
14:24<andythenorth>Alberth: yup
14:24<andythenorth>I sulked a bit about one game, then started a new one
14:25<frosch123>i don't think i am the typical firs player
14:26<andythenorth>I suggest it only so that production amounts can be tied to a specific known newgrf
14:27<@Alberth>I think it's a valid strategy to target a specific newgrf, you can use knowledge about it to enhance the GS
14:27<@Alberth>Obviously, it's more limited in use though ;)
14:28<andythenorth>100% of nothing or 50% of something :P
14:28<frosch123>well, if it is about the balancing only
14:28<andythenorth>it's about target production amounts at secondary industries
14:29<andythenorth>a refinement would be excluding certain known industries with special behaviour
14:29<andythenorth>but the basic idea might suck, so refinement can wait
14:30<frosch123>well, you could give the gs some presets "suitable for firs arctic", "suitable for default toyland", ...
14:30<andythenorth>that would be neat
14:30*andythenorth considers compiling a GS using FIRS codebase :P
14:30<andythenorth>so that industry IDs are known
14:30<frosch123>gs have no access to the industry ids
14:31<andythenorth>nvm :)
14:31<frosch123>they use the global ids, newgrf have local ids
14:31<frosch123>but you can detect input/output cargos
14:37<andythenorth>building docks on corner slopes - would need new sprites.... o_O
14:37*andythenorth has all the little ideas that come from playing a game :P
14:37<frosch123>Alberth: should we deploy the current eints state wrt. gs?
14:38<andythenorth>my newgrfs are getting fixed much faster than usual today :P
14:38<frosch123>andythenorth: as long as you do not fall for the V-style of fixing :p
14:38<andythenorth>defined as...? :)
14:38<@Alberth>patch doesn't apply any more
14:39<frosch123>"remove aircraft"
14:39<frosch123>and such
14:39<frosch123>"remove ..."
14:39<andythenorth>I like 'remove'
14:39<andythenorth>fixes bugs :)
14:39<@Alberth>I spend to day on codechanges to make the change of string commands eventually possible
14:40<@Alberth>so now I have to redo the gs patch queue
14:40<@Alberth>which shouldn't be very hard, but will take a few eveninks
14:42<frosch123>oh, gs-awards actually uses {CHECKMARK} and {CROSS}:s
14:42<frosch123>and even {RIGHT_ARROW} :s
14:44<@Alberth>strgen needs to be fixed :p
14:44<frosch123>looks like, from the gs on devzone, gs-awards has the most variety of string commands
14:59<andythenorth>autorefit is borked
15:00<andythenorth>identical wagons in a consist
15:00<andythenorth>1 is refitting as ordered, the other is ignoring the order
15:00-!-waterfoul [] has quit [Quit: ~ Trillian - ~]
15:10<andythenorth>the way CHIPS tiles flicker between cargos is quite amusing :P
15:10<andythenorth>could stations cascade waiting cargos in some sensible way to their tiles?
15:11<andythenorth>in groups of 4 or such, from N tile?
15:11<andythenorth>or dividing tiles between waiting cargos?
15:14<frosch123>i thought eddi wanted to code that stations display cargo accoding to throughput, not waiting cargo
15:15<frosch123>maybe the easiest way out is to include the cargo of waiting trains into the station display
15:16<frosch123>so cargo only vanishes when the train leaves
15:17<andythenorth>I like the indication that there is lots of stuff waiting
15:17<andythenorth>it's just funny when the thresholds cross :)
15:17<andythenorth>so 600t of steel is surpassed by 601t of goods
15:17<andythenorth>and entire station changes :)
15:17<frosch123>well, you would still see when cargo is waiting
15:18<frosch123>but you would not have the flickering when a train in waiting for full load
15:18<frosch123>but, ok, with firs 100% cheat you have no waiting trains
15:18<andythenorth>I don't use that 100% :)
15:18<andythenorth>it's silly
15:18<frosch123>it's the V method
15:18<frosch123>remove everything :)
15:19<frosch123>ships, aircraft, breakdowns, station rating :p
15:20<andythenorth>that's interesting
15:21<andythenorth>do stations show the cargo with lowest ID or something?
15:21<andythenorth>or latest delivered to station?
15:22<andythenorth>yeah, so if any steel is waiting, that station shows steel
15:22<andythenorth>yeah, reading that now :)
15:22<frosch123>ignore the "12" and the "4095" :p
15:23<andythenorth>so it depends on labels in an action 3?

16:02<andythenorth>is there a horrible hack to offer constructing trams without catenary?
16:05<andythenorth>how do I teach cdist to re-route?

16:05<andythenorth>with single 75t vehicle
16:05<andythenorth>instead of via 4 x 300t train
16:06<@planetmaker>it will adopt to new routes. But the lead time might be larger than you expect

18:39<Killer11>Good evening
18:39<Killer11>I have succeeded in my NML quest
18:39<Killer11>I've got my articulated engines up and running and it is simply delightful
18:40<Killer11>NML is just so easy to learn, so much more readable than nfo hex, Maybe this summer i'
18:40-!-DarkAce-Z [~BillyMays@] has joined #openttd
18:40<Killer11>ll go on and experiment with 32 bit graphics
18:42<Killer11>for now the headache is actually sorting out the actual specific differences between the 2M62's that Lithuanian Railways are running
18:42<Killer11>between UM, M and K other than those things have caterpillar/some new russian engines in them i have 0 clue of their actual stats
18:44<Killer11>i did learn that a thing called M62 KEOS actually exists tho aparently it's fitted with a bunch of things needed to make it fit a passenger train locomotive role
18:45<Eddi|zuHause>Killer11: have you seen the xUSSR set yet?
18:45-!-DarkAceZ [~BillyMays@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:46<Killer11>seen it a number of times actually
18:47<Eddi|zuHause>so what's that missing that would be lithuania-specific?
18:47<Killer11>all of the m62 mods that happened in the past 6 years or so
18:47<Killer11>also the siemens euroruners
18:47<Killer11>chech doubledeckers
18:47<Killer11>and more
18:48<Killer11>And with the whole Railbaltica thing i'll have a justification to make this set double gauge
18:48<Eddi|zuHause>Killer11: sometimes engine stats are just too similar
18:49-!-bdavenport [] has joined #openttd
18:49<Eddi|zuHause>i got most of my engine stats from wikipedia
18:49<Eddi|zuHause>but seemingly that is more complete for germany than other countries
18:49<Killer11>That's why i left a question at a local forum where even some people that drive those thingsa frequent
18:50<Killer11>in a day or two i should get my answer on that whole thing, at the very least the operating costs should be different and i wouldn't be surprised if CAT engines are a bit beefier
18:51<Killer11>they are afterall much more modern
18:53-!-Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:54<Eddi|zuHause>"more modern" nowadays mostly means "more environmentally friendly" instead of "more powerful"
18:55<Eddi|zuHause>which usually comes along with less fuel usage, but at the cost of more expensive electronics
18:56<Killer11>the xussr set idea of longer vehicles seems interesting but also extremely complicated to me
18:57<Killer11>how far into development is that feature of the set?
18:59-!-valhallasw [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
19:00<Eddi|zuHause>i don't know if they used that, but i wrote a concept here:
19:00<Eddi|zuHause>CETS is based on that
19:05-!-roboboy [] has joined #openttd
19:06<Killer11>I played arround with it and I just don't think OpenTTD is ready for this scale, it has the same problem that LongVehicles has
19:06<Killer11>all looks fine until vehicles go trough tunnels/bridges/etc
19:07<Killer11>then glitches appear because of the engien limitations and it just looks distracting
19:08<Killer11>also if you redraw trains at that scale they become gigantic in comparison to everything else, i guess it's just a matter of taste and I preffer the TTD distorted scale
19:08<Killer11>the game was just built for it
19:14<Killer11>I wonder if that set will ever include TEM-TMH or TEM-LTH from what i can tell those version of the TEM shunter were an exclusive Lithuanian order but damn do they look pretty
19:16<Killer11> respectively
19:21<Eddi|zuHause>Killer11: my concept definetely solves the tunnel/bridge problem
19:22<Killer11>they don't seem to use it in the set tho, or at least haven't implemented it yet
19:22<Eddi|zuHause>Killer11: try out CETS
19:22<Eddi|zuHause>it's fully playable, even though the graphics are mostly "missing"
19:23<Killer11>thanks, will do
19:23<Eddi|zuHause>use the prussian vehicles from ~1880-1920 for best effects :)
