01:09<TheZonta>Greeting Folks
01:10<TheZonta>I was wondering if there any NewGRF or mod that allow every player to use the same rail network?
01:11<@Rubidium>good "morning" TheZonta
01:11<@Rubidium>there is no NewGRF that can do that, there is an infrastructure sharing mod somewhere on the forum, though I'm not sure how outdated it is
01:14<TheZonta>Got it
01:15<TheZonta>Humm lastest change in the changelog is dated of the 30 dec 2009
01:23<TheZonta>Seems there a version on Beta 1.4 r26264
01:23<TheZonta>anyway many thanks to you Rubidium
01:23<TheZonta>for leading me to the mod

08:15<Tanguy>Hello.
08:19<Tanguy>A trainiac friend of mine told me that in real train networks, junctions were usually three-way. In fact, I think he may even have told me that four-way junctions did not exist, but I am not certain of that.
08:20<Tanguy>I wonder whether or not it is efficient in OpenTTD to avoid four-way junctions and to use mostly three-way ones.

09:04<efess>make clean is the developer's way of saying "did you turn it off and back on again"
09:05<LSky>make clean did very little xD
09:05<LSky>this is the complete error;
09:05<LSky>http://pastebin.com/TTYK7YJ5
09:05<LSky>also, morning Captain efess
09:05<efess>morning sir.
09:08<@planetmaker>that pretty much looks like a broken patch
09:08<@planetmaker>does unpatched trunk compile for you, LSky ?
09:08<LSky>yep
09:08<LSky>im wondering if Im using the wrong source perhaps
09:08<@planetmaker>well, then get to fixing source
09:09<@planetmaker>if trunk compiles and patch not - then the patch is broken for the version you applied it to
09:09<@planetmaker>that can also be the case if the author made it with that source version
09:10<LSky>the thread mentions using the 1.3.2 source
09:10<@planetmaker>what does the diff mention? :)
09:10<LSky>eh, ofc, i shouldve checked that
09:10<@planetmaker>(and why do people still make patches against stable releases - that completely eludes my understanding)
09:11<LSky>well, the patch isnt exactly new
09:11<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: mostly because YACD won't apply against trunk anyway
09:12<LSky>i just forsee getting myself into more trouble if i try applying this patch against a whole different version instead of what its supposed to be created for
09:13<LSky>hmm, the diff file doesnt mention a specific revision as far as I can tell
09:13<@planetmaker>got a link?
09:13<@planetmaker>to the thread?
09:13<LSky>it just says 1.3.2
09:13<LSky>yeah, one sec
09:14<LSky>http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?t=65525
09:21<@planetmaker>pretty much looks like a broken patch. Two of the one in the PP modifying saveload code in an incompatible way it seems
09:22<LSky>hmm, alright then. i was attempting to compile it with desync debug mode enabled to figure out what was going wrong whilst using the precompiled versions in that thread, guess no dice :/
09:23<@planetmaker>you might go to afterload.cpp and check for the occurance of the _m variable and try replacing it by the _main_map.m
09:23<@planetmaker>maybe that does the trick
09:23-!-retro|cz [~retro@ip-89-176-82-80.net.upcbroadband.cz] has joined #openttd
09:24<@planetmaker>but honestly, you'll have no joy trying to find all desyncs which likely lurk in that big kind of PP
09:24<LSky>probably not
09:25<@planetmaker>did you use any particular NewGRFs when seeing the desyncs?

09:27-!-Extrems [borgs@24.157.137.219] has joined #openttd
09:31<@planetmaker>LSky, you know, what I would find interesting? A server which updates around 21h CET with the then current nightly version of OpenTTD
09:31<@planetmaker>mostly free play, maybe some variation of NewGRFs, maybe occasional but not always a GS
09:33<LSky>those desync issues played with a particular wide range of newgrfs, guess i went a little ahead of myself
09:33<LSky>by the way, about the server idea you mentioned, why 21 CET? That seems like a time where people are already playing
09:33<V453000>I am assuming most patch-wtf people only play single player :|
09:33-!-Japa_ [~Japa@117.201.106.68] has joined #openttd
09:34<V453000>21cet = new nightly
09:34<V453000>I guess :)
09:34<@planetmaker>LSky, yes, but that's when the new nightly will be done compiling, yes
09:34<LSky>i know, but youre going to reset a server in prime time?
09:34<LSky>that sounds like a terrible idea
09:34<V453000>though that is true ^
09:34<LSky>i mean, 18 CET might be better
09:34<LSky>or 16 CET
09:34<@planetmaker>probably true, yes. Well. any other time might be better. yeah
09:35<@planetmaker>s/better/do as well/
09:35<LSky>ill pass the suggestion onto my server admins
09:35<V453000>the only issue is that you wouldnt really have any players since people are totally lazy to update
09:35<LSky>im sure one of them would like to get into the idea
09:36<@planetmaker>I thought you were the server admin? :P
09:36<V453000>just look how many retards disregard RC/beta and only play stable
09:36<LSky>i administrate the administrators :P
09:36<@planetmaker>V453000, the popularity of the nightly server which dih once maintained contradicts that statement
09:36<V453000>interesting
09:37<@planetmaker>I'd say it was as popular as our public or stable servers
09:37<@planetmaker>and "latest features" is a selling argument ;)
09:37<LSky>( <V453000> I am assuming most patch-wtf people only play single player :|), is patch-wtf a particular patch, or do you mean patched versions in general?
09:37<@planetmaker>especially as it's much less hassle than any custom patch packs ;)
09:38<V453000>LSky: anything that isnt stable or trunk
09:38<LSky>well, we did have 17 players online earlier, on a monday no less
09:38<LSky>I thought that was impressive
09:38<@planetmaker>that's quite ok
09:38<@planetmaker>or better than that :)
09:39<LSky>was more than any other I believe
09:39<LSky>and thats on a patched r24663
09:39<LSky>so not recent either
09:40<LSky>the problem with patched clients is that they have to offer something extraordinary, as well as being stable
09:40<@planetmaker>well, I'm more interested in 'official' versions getting more tests, especially current ones
09:40<LSky>and they have to be accesible, etc
09:40<@planetmaker>yup
09:40-!-Japa [~Japa@117.214.0.232] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:40<@planetmaker>that's a bit of a hassle, I know :)
09:41<LSky>like I said, Ill pass it on once either the UK or US admin gets online/back from work/etc
09:41<LSky>that should be easier than patched versions, since people can just download the precompiled client
09:44<@planetmaker>LSky, I think that §6 of your server rules on signal use is... quite an overestimation
09:44<LSky>thats about the pb signals?
09:45<@planetmaker>yup
09:46<LSky>overestimation as in, theyre not that much more cpu intensive?
09:46-!-Morgan_Freeman [~not_avail@99-194-190-173.dyn.centurytel.net] has joined #openttd
09:46<LSky>also, those server rules are badly in need of an update :(
09:46<@planetmaker>path_backoff_interval <-- if you don't change this variable, you'll likely not notice a difference
09:47<@planetmaker>and even if, that's mostly within error margins
09:47<LSky>im guessing that was added before r24663?
09:47-!-Morgan_Freeman [~not_avail@99-194-190-173.dyn.centurytel.net] has quit [Max SendQ exceeded]
09:47<@planetmaker>what you do see with pbs signals sometimes is that a train seems to wait for a free path... exactly that time span
09:47<@planetmaker>since ever we have path signals
09:48<LSky>hmm, im not quite sure on what the original decision was based when we decided on that rule, been so long ago :(
09:48<@planetmaker>(yes, I encourage people also to use block signals when no path signals are needed. But making it a server rule with that reasoning is IMHO ... way too strong)
09:48-!-Midnightmyth [~quassel@93-167-84-102-static.dk.customer.tdc.net] has joined #openttd
09:49<@planetmaker>I'd like otherwise to see credible data which justify that rule
09:50<LSky>im looking through the posting history to see if I can find the discussion
09:50<LSky>not even sure if it was on reddit anyway, couldve been an IRC conversation
09:50<LSky>i really dont recall
09:50<LSky>but yeah, im pretty sure the value you mentioned is one thats not changed on any of our servers
09:52<@planetmaker>(in theory the statement likely is even right - but practically I doubt it has much influence)
09:52<V453000>there are other elements like many towns, stupidly large maps, newGRFs like ECS, or simply too many vehicles (reducing RV, ship and plane limits is a good thing too), which make the game heavy a lot more than sane usage of PBS
09:53<V453000>we played games with 2000 or even 3000 trains, all of which used PBS at least at some points
09:53<@planetmaker>planes use the least of cpu compared with all other vehicle types
09:53<@planetmaker>they need virtually no path finder - just straight lines from A to B
09:53<V453000>right, then they are "okay" in cpu regards =D terrible in everything else
09:54<@planetmaker>they simply don't compare well to a single train line :)
09:54<@planetmaker>economically
09:54<LSky>if it gets busy on our main server, like the current round as well as last round, were running into issues that results in people simply being unable to catch up with the server after they downloaded the map. However, I think there's not much that can be done about that without severly restricting max vehicles
09:54<efess>well, the rule is there to coax people into using block signals for long strait lines instead of PBS, not to completely prevent its use
09:54<V453000>how large map, how many vehicles LSky ?
09:55<LSky>currently 2048x1024, thousands of RVs, 1000-2000 trains
09:55<V453000>efess: which is good, using block signals means people will learn a lot quicker
09:55<LSky>we reach that on an average map
09:55<V453000>and you are surprised
09:55<LSky>nope
09:55<LSky>not at all
09:55<V453000>1. 2048x1024 is total wtf imo
09:55<LSky>its too small
09:55<V453000>2: RVs are just death :D
09:55<@planetmaker>LSky, then the lag does not come from signals. but from map size and vehicle (train, rv) count
09:55<LSky>thats what it is
09:56<efess>We're running FIRS with 15 companies
09:56<@planetmaker>I'm not surprised about lag. It's CPU heavy map
09:56<LSky>i invite you to have a quick look at the server :P
09:56<V453000>we have 15 companies on 512x1024 with HIGH amoutn of water and we are just fine on space usually
09:56<LSky>were`in 1967 and the map is full
09:56<@planetmaker>and people who don't have a fast connection AND fast CPU won't be able to download quickly enough and catch-up with server
09:56<V453000>wonder how do you define full
09:56<LSky>well, I define full like this
09:57<LSky>if someone new joins, he is somehow able to start a company (not currently possible, but sometimes one resets), is he able to find some empty space to start, industries an towns that arent surrounded by tracks
09:58<LSky>currently, youll be hard pressed to find enough space to start a decent network without bridging and tunnelling your way across other people's networks
09:58<V453000>well that mainly depends on amount of industries really
09:58<@planetmaker>well. Requiring some tunneling and bridging doesn't hurt, does it?
09:58<LSky>were trying to find a balance where theres interaction, but players can still find room to build
09:58<V453000>I dare say that 2048x1024 is almost impossible to _Fill_
09:58<V453000>e.g. with solid density of tracks
09:59<V453000>solid density = more than 2000 trains per 512x512 Or so
09:59<LSky>thats more solid than whatd Id consider 'full' its not full as in, theres no way to build more
09:59<V453000>well then its not full :D
09:59<@planetmaker>LSky, just for fun: try your server with a virgin 2048x1024 map and a 512x1024 map and see how the cpu usage differs :)
09:59<V453000>if you got industries to connect and space to build? :)
09:59<@planetmaker>no-on playing
09:59<LSky>but its full with to the extent that people wishing to build a new network have trouble finding clusters of unserviced industries
10:00<LSky>i try to envision it from a somewhat new player's perspective
10:00<@peter1138>unserviced industries...
10:00<@peter1138>what's the obsession with not competing?
10:00<@planetmaker>more houses, more industries... they add to cpu :)
10:01<LSky>there's competing, but people like to cultivate
10:01<V453000>but yeah FIRS is quite stupid in how it makes people drag their network over a lot of the map
10:01<V453000>competing generally leads to conflicts between people sooner or later
10:01<LSky>sometimes, yeah
10:01<LSky>only had one 'conflict' on the current round, none on the last round I believe
10:01<@peter1138>fighting for resources is meant to be part of the game :S
10:01<LSky>an important consideration is that people have significantly longer time to build on our server

10:02<V453000>meant by who peter1138 ? P
10:02<V453000>how long time LSky ?
10:02<LSky>5-7 days
10:02<LSky>for a 125 year game
10:02<V453000>sounds normal
10:02<@peter1138>well, try without on an original size map with original industry amounts
10:02<LSky>thats normal?
10:02<LSky>:|
10:03<V453000>our games are like 1920-2120 or a lot more
10:03<V453000>I think that is pretty normal
10:03<LSky>planetmaker, were running a vanilla server as well
10:03<LSky>same map size i believe
10:04<V453000>honestly, if you need more space for people, just make 2 separate games run there
10:04<V453000>each smaller
10:04<LSky>thats what were doing
10:04<V453000>well 2048x1024 isnt "smaller"
10:04<LSky>were trying to spread out the playerbase to a second server
10:04<LSky>in my experience, with the settings we have, anything under 2048x1024 is too small
10:05<V453000>can I get a zoomed out screenshot of what means "full?
10:05<LSky>yeah
10:05<V453000>cant join with openttd atm, at work, sorry (:
10:05<LSky>thats np

10:07<LSky>peter1138, I agree with the fighting for resources, but in my experience that 'fighting' is preferred to be under who connects to it first, rather than fighting over the same primary industry
10:08<LSky>the latter comes with issues like blocking other players, networks jamming because of changing resource availability, etc
10:08-!-LeandroL [~leandro@190.189.0.224] has joined #openttd
10:08<LSky>less pleasant stuff
10:09<V453000>stupid amount of problems solved by having more industries etc :P
10:09<LSky>V453000, this is a screenshot of a map that's 45% into the game http://i.imgur.com/1bQcCac.png
10:09<LSky>as a server admin, I consider that situation problematic
10:09<V453000>that is what I define empty as hell
10:10<V453000>most of it caused by people building from one end to the other
10:10<LSky>because new people can either not create a new company or not find too much space to grow an expansive network
10:10<V453000>we have people building "locally" within e.g. 200x300 tile region
10:10<LSky>well, industries like oil wells get serviced quickly
10:10<LSky>once they run out, that resource is no longer available, which present problems down the line
10:10<V453000>well another problem of FIRS is that there are few industries which are "best"
10:11<V453000>I would reconsider using FIRS especially on this large map
10:11<V453000>because that most definitely is a major source of your cpu issues just as well
10:11<LSky>there's no viable alternative to it though
10:11<LSky>not in my experience
10:11<V453000>original industries are perfectly fine
10:11<LSky>thats true, but not for our main server
10:11<V453000>ogfx+ with its customization and offering many cargoes is imo the best
10:11<LSky>its too simple
10:12<V453000>it works without problems, that is why its simple - but for playing and servicing properly, it is imo hardest
10:12<V453000>I strongly recommend it :) but you cant copy my hints in everything, you would just end up with the same server as we have
10:13<V453000>one thing I have very good experience is making islands on the map. Causes people to stay on their piece of dirt, and build more densely there.
10:13<LSky>yeah, I like islands as well
10:13<V453000>just fiddling with the generator usually gives good results
10:13<LSky>did you ever use that improved terragenesis?
10:14<LSky>im not sure precisely which patch introduces that feature
10:14<LSky>but the water generation is great
10:14<V453000>im not sure if you mean the "variety distribution" but I find it useless if that is what you mean
10:14<TheZonta>Thanks V453000 I will try that (ogfx+)
10:14<V453000>sure try, it is fun, I use it all the time
10:14<LSky>no, not variety distribution
10:15<LSky>the one that adds "alpinist" as a terrain type
10:15<LSky>on top of mountainous
10:15<V453000>ah, well I saw the patch, tried it, but the one in trunk is just very good already
10:16<V453000>and the alpine mountain is generally unbuildable on from what I saw, so it doesnt really help terribly much with making a playable map
10:16<V453000>montainous is good enough, I mostly use Hilly
10:16<LSky>well, its not the alpinist terrain type thats particularly awesome, but the way in which water is distributed is much better

10:17<V453000>I see ... well some of our admins also experiment with heightmaps ... I guess that is also an option to create islands. I personally always created some map which was almost perfect, and finished in scenario editor
10:17<V453000>http://blog.openttdcoop.org/2012/10/16/creating-maps/
10:17<V453000>is how I usually did it

10:18<LSky>its not so much the amount of water, but the distribution that presents difficulties for me
10:19<V453000>I get your point, thats what Smooth/Rough are there for really :)
10:19<V453000>smooth makes larger islands with sea between, rough is more dense, which can take a lot more random tries to get nice islands
10:19<V453000>the blog article I posted includes a guide how to make islandy map
10:23<@planetmaker>that 'alpinist' is part of the 'more height levels' patch.
10:23<@planetmaker>(and it should be a separate patch really)
10:24<@planetmaker>*patch queue
10:25<LSky>yeah I really wish theyd separate the terrain generator from the height levels patch
10:25<LSky>maybe even further
10:25<@planetmaker>I tried to dig through the patch series once. It's HUUUGE
10:26<LSky>and seperate the elevation genration from the land/water mass distribution
10:26<@planetmaker>frankly too huge for the documentation it comes with
10:26<mek42>are there any server communities good for casualish games for newer players to learn from older hands?
10:27<LSky>should be plenty
10:27-!-Morgan_Freeman [~not_avail@99-194-190-173.dyn.centurytel.net] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:27<@planetmaker>yeah
10:27<LSky>id advertise my own, but that seems imappropriate, maybe check the server list for populated servers?
10:28<@planetmaker>I'm biased similarily, I recommend the #openttdcoop welcome server :P
10:28<@planetmaker>but checkout a few like LSky suggests and stick where you like it
10:28<mek42>i'm actually having trouble finding the openttdcoop server at all
10:28<@planetmaker>(or play here and there and elsewhere - they all have at least slightly different focus)
10:28<LSky>it should be listed here; http://www.openttd.org/en/servers
10:28<@planetmaker>1.4.0-beta3
10:29<@planetmaker>you might have another OpenTTD version :)
10:30<mek42>i have 1.3.3 as well as the nightly that was advertised in openttdcoop irc about 12 hours ago
10:31<@planetmaker>coop irc should give you the revision of the coop public server
10:31<mek42>i assume there are both coop and competitive servers?
10:31<@planetmaker>sure. I guess most are competitive
10:32<LSky>V453000, using the same settings, I generated 2 maps using the different generators. I have to admit I like the second one better
10:32<LSky>http://imgur.com/a/ypeTZ
10:32<@planetmaker>the bigger land masses?
10:32<LSky>yeah
10:32<V453000>but what will that do for players?
10:32<mek42>aha! ty for using the ip command in openttdcoop - i think i had the port wrong
10:33<V453000>everyone to build on the same spot?
10:33<LSky>it create continents
10:33<V453000>for multiplayer it is better to have many spots
10:33<LSky>well yeah, its an example
10:33<V453000>well continents are cute but if there is just 2 of them you might as well just have 1
10:33<LSky>what i mean is, it creates larger islands
10:33<V453000>Also, I would use Rough
10:33<V453000>very rough is almost impossible to make nice islands
10:33<V453000>yes, but too large :P size of the islands is qutie determined by teh smoothness
10:33<@planetmaker>LSky, but you can get a similar one with the right settings and unpatched
10:34<@planetmaker>I like maps between the two
10:36<V453000>^
10:36<LSky>fair enough
10:36<LSky>i didnt even realize smoothness had such a big influence on island size
10:36<V453000>if you use smooth, it will come out easily and quickly most of the time
10:37<V453000>Rough is IMO nicer, but a lot less probable to get good islands on
10:37<@planetmaker>I should probably somewhen make note on my land generation settings :D
10:37<@planetmaker>*take notes

10:46<LSky>granted, that only works with larger maps
10:50<V453000>75 is a bit high :D
10:54<mek42>is spectate an option for any multiplayer?
10:58<LSky>most servers should have that
11:01<LSky>and yes, 75% is a high, its just that if you make the map large enough, there's going to be large island, haha
11:03<LSky>it might actually make FISH ships relevant, if the islands are further away from each other than the max range of Av8's A380
11:05<LSky>i should probably just make a scenario map or something

17:02<LSky>for 25600 you mean?

17:16<@Alberth>or at changes in some range of revisions, but then it's harder to see
17:17<LSky>alright
17:17<@Alberth>alternatively, look at what got rejected, and where
17:18<@Alberth>then look at the change history of the file around those lines
17:18<LSky>right, so if I check the .rej file, does that mean the whole part is rejected?
17:18<LSky>or can it be one particular function?
17:18<@Alberth>no, just one or more hunk
17:18<@Alberth>*hunks
17:18<LSky>alright
17:19<@Alberth>everything in the diff which is not in the .rej is applied
17:19<LSky>right, that's what I understood so far
17:19<LSky>by the way, this is probably totally not the appropriate avenue of learning how to work with the source code, Im guessing
17:19<@Alberth>and that works in hunks (blocks of changes between the @@ lines)
17:20<@Alberth>handling patches is one aspect, and at some point you have to get your hands dirty by trying things :)

17:22<LSky>any particular openttd wiki page thatd be a better start?

17:22<@Alberth>what do you want to learn / know about
17:23<+glx>(fixing conflicts)
17:23<+glx>hand-editing patch can be dangerous
17:23<@Alberth>that was before my rewrite, I guess

17:25<LSky>yeah thats a good question Alberth, I dont even know the answer to that though

17:33<FLHerne>RVs, more likely
17:33<FLHerne>I don't think so?
17:34<Eddi|zuHause>trucks can also turn around at the end of the road, but trams cannot
17:34<Eddi|zuHause>trams need a special turning place (half-tile)
17:35<FLHerne>Ah yes, trucks can. I just checked
17:36<Aristide>o/

20:42<mek42>is there a way to increase the font size inside the vehicle summary windows? Where it says the vehicle name and current / last year profits.
20:48<Pikka>font size lines in the config file?
20:49<Eddi|zuHause>it can only be done via editing openttd.cfg
20:49<Pikka>"only"? :)

21:31<Flygon>RTS? Giant war going on? Lots of shenanigans?... bam

21:53<mek42>is it silly to serve a single player game in order to let other folks spectate now and then to comment on how my networks are? or would it be better to take screenshots and do a let's learn to play thread in the forum?

22:01<Eddi|zuHause>you can do whatever you want...
22:02<Eddi|zuHause>if you run a "single player server", make sure there is only 1 company allowed, and that company is password protected
22:02<Eddi|zuHause>otherwise random people may ruin your game
22:03<Eddi|zuHause>(you have to reset the password every time you start the game, it is not saved)
