07:44<Eddi|zuHause>again depending on the definition of "work" :p
07:45<Eddi|zuHause>but actually, a large part of the motivation behind CETS was the DR side of the whole story

10:49-!-valhallasw [~valhallas@zeroshell2.strw.leidenuniv.nl] has joined #openttd
10:50<Starlight>How do i load a game on the Dedicated server I play on?
10:52<Starlight>Ok, How do I find out what number the savegame is then?
10:52<Starlight>I just figured out the load command..
10:53<Taede>there is also ls (list directory), cd (change dir) and pwd (current working dir)
10:53<Starlight>Ty
10:53<Taede>just make sure you use rcon <rconpassword> load <savegame>
10:54<Taede>using load without the rcon bit would just load the game on your local client
10:54<Taede>also: http://wiki.openttd.org/Console_Commands
10:54-!-oskari89 [oskari89@83-102-63-32.bb.dnainternet.fi] has joined #openttd
10:56<Taede>its bound to have one or 2 commands you may find useful too
10:58<Starlight>It doesn't work.. It just say "Load a game name or index"!
10:58<Starlight>I am typing in game number 2
11:01<Starlight>rcon Pass load 2
11:01<Starlight>Isn't working..
11:02<Starlight>Helluu?
11:05<Starlight>I got it working using the console.. In the server window.. Rcon didn't work..
11:13<peter1139>rcon pass "load 2" maybe
11:13<peter1139>dunno if that ever got resolved
11:14<peter1139>or if i'm imagining it
11:31<Eddi|zuHause>i have a patch for that
11:32<peter1139>:)
11:32<Eddi|zuHause>i don't remember why it was not included

14:05-!-gelignite [~gelignite@i528C30A7.versanet.de] has joined #openttd
14:07<@Alberth>assuming you took it from openttdcoop, they have special openttd.cfg settings for the path finder
14:07<rubenwardy_>probably
14:08<@Alberth>http://wiki.openttdcoop.org/PublicServerSettings perhaps this?
14:08<rubenwardy_>I am reading from here: http://wiki.openttd.org/Cyclotron
14:09<@planetmaker>good even ink
14:09<@Alberth>ok, those things look way too complicated to bother about, to me
14:09<@Alberth>oddink planetmaker
14:10<@planetmaker>rubenwardy_, also the cyclotron on the openttd wiki might assume set yapf.rail_firstred_twoway_eol 1
14:10<@planetmaker>generally I don't consider cyclotrons a useful thing, though :)
14:10<@Alberth>iirc V claims the cyclotron to be ineffective mostly
14:10<@planetmaker>especially if it involves sharp curves like shown in the screenshot
14:10<@planetmaker>V is totally right with that claim :)
14:11<rubenwardy_>works!
14:11<@planetmaker>(and I don't know how people get the idea that it's a coop thing to build - on the contrary)
14:11<rubenwardy_>Thaks, Alberth
14:11<@Alberth>for some value of 'work' no doubt :)
14:11<@Alberth>planetmaker: it looks like a complete chaos of tracks :)
14:11<@planetmaker>it's more efficient to implement a slight forward-priority with acceleration space
14:12<rubenwardy_>oops
14:12<rubenwardy_>Thanks planetmaker
14:13<@planetmaker>(my definition of efficiency is flow or network throughput with trains stopping as little as possible)

14:14<Matulla>hi all i got a question FARM Rail station i woudt like to unload also food processed by the foodfactory to carry away by lory how do i set up the train settings to unload the food and only load the corn
14:15<Matulla>it also carries the food away
14:15<Matulla>if the lory is not in station
14:16<@planetmaker>goto FARM and refit to CORN
14:16<@planetmaker>you need a trainset which allows autorefit in stations

14:17<andythenorth>so what's this thing about best passenger locomotive?
14:18<andythenorth>I didn't follow
14:18<@planetmaker>oh, that guy wants to convince everyone that the payment formula is crap
14:18<andythenorth>what's the problem with it?
14:19<@planetmaker>it's a non-monotonous function
14:19<@planetmaker>he shows graphs in that or another thread
14:19<andythenorth>assume I failed A-level further maths :P
14:20<@planetmaker>f(x) is monotonous, if for all x: f(x) <= f(x + deltx)
14:20<@planetmaker>and deltax > 0
14:21<valhallasw>andythenorth: monotonous = better service => more payment
14:21<andythenorth>so is the faster train better or not? o_O
14:21<@planetmaker>dunno. Probably not
14:22<@planetmaker>the slower one is a steamer. So ... it's cooler :P
14:24<@planetmaker>I need your vote for titlegame(s), andythenorth
14:25<andythenorth>where's the topic

14:26-!-|Terkhen| is now known as Terkhen
14:26<@planetmaker>vote actually ends... Sunday night CET :P

14:27<@planetmaker>haha :)
14:31<andythenorth>Entry 05 is interesting
14:31<andythenorth>zoomed out?
14:31<andythenorth>entry 05 is my favourite
14:31<andythenorth>too many boring big cities in the others
14:31<andythenorth>never use arctic, it's dour. Always use temperate

14:32<andythenorth>oic :P
14:32<andythenorth>k
14:32<@planetmaker>easier to count then :)
14:32<@Alberth>the tricky part is that it must be 3 different choices :p

15:26<DDR>Well, got schooled by a guy building a *huge* coal transport network.
15:26<DDR>Got a bit of passenger going, but when you're making 60k/train it's hard to beat.
15:26<DDR>He had the network fucking *future-proofed*, too.
15:27<DDR>Cloverleaf interchanges and everything.
15:27<DDR>'twas quite the endevour, really.
15:28<@planetmaker>cloverleaves jam
15:28<DDR>… really?
15:28<@planetmaker>yes. They don't follow the rule "split before join". They do it the opposite
15:29<@planetmaker>thus trains can be blocked by trains which block the path they need to go
15:29<DDR>Hunh.
15:29<@planetmaker>thus a waits for be while be waits for a. All in a nice circle

15:30<DDR>I'd never really considered it. Also, I must keep that rule in mind.
15:31<@planetmaker>that's actually the only important rule for network flow :)
15:31<@planetmaker>well. signaling. and ... :P
15:31<DDR>I thiiiink you just upped my game.
15:32<DDR>I actually understand signalling, mostly.
15:32<@planetmaker>:)
15:32<DDR>Some of the pre-combo-exit stuff is still a bit fuzzy.
15:32<@planetmaker>it gets complicated when one starts to play the path finder :)
15:33<@planetmaker>like making sure that trains with only one station in the order list do exactly what they are supposed to do and return still a big profit
15:33<DDR>I can, just, prevent my trains from reaching a station and turning back down the line because the station is full.
15:33<DDR>How do you make a profit with just one station? According to all I know, that should be strictly impossible.
15:33<DDR>Indeed.
15:34<Eddi|zuHause>that was not the content of the sentence :)
15:34<@planetmaker>it works fabulously. If you have the right network for it
15:34-!-Japa__ [~Japa@117.201.100.29] has joined #openttd

15:34<DDR>OH, that makes sense.
15:34<DDR>I forgot about implicit stations!
15:35<@planetmaker>http://wiki.openttdcoop.org/Self-regulating_Network
15:35<@planetmaker>works mostly only when you have a network dedicated to each cargo separately
15:35<DDR>I want one.
15:36<@planetmaker>or if you have trains which allow reasonable autorefit in stations

16:00<Gallomimia>hi i'm a bit of a noob here. still trying to get my bearings with all that is "openttd" just playing a game where i'm messing with a maglev network. Having serious problems with the bridges slowing everything down. looking on google and seeing some kind of option for raising bridge speed limits but i don't know how to activate it. i'm open to suggestions of all kinds for making bridges not be such an impediment. thanks in advance fo
16:00<Gallomimia>r your tips

16:10<@Alberth>make bridges as short as possible
16:10<@Alberth>and double, triple, or quadruple them
16:11<@planetmaker>Gallomimia, bridges will always slow down the fastest maglev trains
16:11<@Alberth>for your next game, you may want to look into some bridge NewGRF
16:11<@planetmaker>unless you find a NewGRF which raises the speed limit to beyond their speed. Not sure it exists
16:11<Gallomimia>i did see one in my search
16:12<Gallomimia>does it involve restarting the game?
16:12<@planetmaker>but if you don't cross water: build tunnels instead
16:12<@planetmaker>it involves starting a new game, yes
16:12<Gallomimia>yeah it's water
16:12<@Alberth>use ships instead :p
16:12*andythenorth hates docks on canals :P
16:12<andythenorth>I just built one
16:12<@planetmaker>alternatively: build canals in the water and leave one tile between them
16:12<andythenorth>lame
16:12<Gallomimia>oh well it's only a night of play. i just built my first ship
16:12<@planetmaker>then clear the water between the canals
16:13<Gallomimia>my first time trying maglevs. decided to start with them instead of any other type of trains. very expensive :/
16:14<Gallomimia>only my second game. sure is fun. i'm finding some expansion to add more industries? seems neat. and i see there's a way to play massive coop games? is that big in the community/
16:15<@planetmaker>depends on whom you ask. I'd say 'yes'. But many play single player or competitive
16:15<@planetmaker>as for industry NewGRFs: you might try FIRS or OpenGFX+Industries
16:16<@planetmaker>with FIRS use tropical landscape and economy 'Heart of Darkness' (via NewGRF parameter). With OpenGFX+Industries just choose via parameters which industries you want to use (all default, but independent of climate, if you like)
16:17<Gallomimia>sounds like you're talking greek so far. :) let me just ask you this. is there a big desparity between all the different flavors of this game i'm seeing? i see ttdpatch which i think is a patch on the copywritten game. and then there's openttd and also a fork of it called simutrans?
16:17<Taede>mind that if you play with firs you will also need a trainset (and other vehicle sets) which will transport the non-standard cargoes
16:17<@planetmaker>good point, Taede ^
16:18<@planetmaker>anyway... have a nice weekend all of you. I'm off for now :)
16:18<Taede>simutrans is a different game altogether, no ties to openttd except for the premise to transport cargo
16:18<@Alberth>bye planetmaker
16:19<DDR>I didn't like simutrans half as much as OpenTTD, it seemed to have some UI issues and, in general, confused the heck out of me.
16:19<Gallomimia>thanks for that info. i'll stick with my openttd i think :)
16:19<DDR>It might be better now, though.
16:20<@Alberth>simutrans starts with routes for the trains, which is indeed more confusing at first
16:20<Gallomimia>was delighted when i started typing something in CLI starting with open and found it through tab completion
16:20<@Alberth>:)
16:20<Gallomimia>what now?! there's a simcity like game installed on my system by default??? oooooooooo
16:20<@Alberth>lincity?
16:21<@Alberth>actually, the original simcity is now open source, and known as micropolis. It does run at linux too
16:22<Gallomimia>bah that crap is boring compared to openttd!
16:23<@Alberth>in this channel, it is :D
16:23<DDR>Lincity's always been for Linux!
16:24<@Alberth>yeah, I haven't tried it for ages though
16:24<@Alberth>at some point they had too heavy graphics, rates of 1 frame / second isnot much fun :)
16:24<Gallomimia>lincity != micropolis?
16:24<DDR>Yeah.
16:25<Gallomimia>god bless open source.
16:25<DDR>Lincity goes way back, and has more of a 'civilization' bent to it.
16:25<DDR>That is, progress through the ages.
16:25<@Alberth>escape from the planet :)
16:25<DDR>You got that in Sim Earth.
16:26<@Alberth>lincity had it too, at least as one of the options to end the game
16:26<Gallomimia>open source principles for privacy and security concerns, openness and freedom and learning........ NO! I want remakes of old games ><

16:33<andythenorth>I made the grf :P
16:34<frosch123>hmm, i coded that last year? didn't i?

16:35<andythenorth>that will keep me quiet for a day or so...
16:35<Gallomimia>alright here's a a pertinent question... what determine's a (example steel mill) firm's capacity or demand for raw materials? there's two close by and i wonder if one will eat up all the ore
16:35-!-luaduck_zzz [~luaduck@0001c465.user.oftc.net] has joined #openttd
16:35<andythenorth>does your station cover both?
16:35<Gallomimia>no two different stations
16:36-!-luaduck_zzz is now known as luaduck
16:36<andythenorth>if each station only covers one mill, then there is no capacity or demand in the default game
16:36<andythenorth>unless you enabled cargo distribution
16:36<Rubidium_>IIRC a steel mill can handle about 24.000 a month
16:36<andythenorth>oh yeah, there's a hard limit :)
16:36<Rubidium_>(a normal one)
16:36<andythenorth>for the insane :P
16:36<Gallomimia>that's a ton.
16:36<andythenorth>some people reach it
16:37<Gallomimia>i'll certainly need to look for more mines...
16:39<Gallomimia>last question. is there any intermodal transport? how does transfer work? can i build a big depot for stuff to get dropped at and transfered to another train of the same type?
16:40<frosch123>https://wiki.openttd.org/Feeder_service
16:40<cib>Is there a simpler way to mod stuff like vehicle stats, cargo transportation prices and similar core settings, without going through the whole ".hex" aka grf stuff? I've honestly had more success modding games with their entire content defined as macros in huge .cpp files, than to figure out this grf stuff, and that's saying something.
16:41<frosch123>there is the "basecost mod" ready for all price stuff
16:41<frosch123>and there is "nml"

16:43<frosch123>and well, i you want to go singleplayer, you can still edit the source for the default vehicles
16:43<DDR>Gallomimia: You can "transfer" the cargo off something at a station, and then that station has the cargo as if it were recieved from an industry.
16:43<Gallomimia>neat thanks frosch123
16:43<Gallomimia>yeah DDR it works like i imagined. i'm impressed :)
16:44-!-Ttech [~ttech@00014919.user.oftc.net] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
16:44<DDR>To do intermodal, either build the two modes of transport in the same station, by placing the tiles next to eachother, or maybe hold ctrl for the station dialog.
16:44<Gallomimia>if i can afford more trains in this game i might get myself a depot
16:44<Gallomimia>station dialog?
16:44<cib>NML seems promising, but I haven't been able to find some useful reference documentation for it. A tutorial is nice, but doesn't help you with doing things not outlined in that tutorial.
16:45<DDR>There was a setting, at least a while back, for detached stations. If you held ctrl, I think, you could choose which station to attach the new station tiles to.
16:45<andythenorth>NML docs are there
16:45<andythenorth>you just have to figure out the navigation ;)
16:45<DDR>For example, you could have bus depots on one side of the road, and a train station on the other.
16:45<Gallomimia>cib the nice thing about an open/volunteer organization making a product like this is that you can help build that documentation by outlining all the things you want to know then writing it as you find out by asking questions :)
16:47<@Alberth>cib: bottom of the right blue column
16:48<cib>Well, main reason I'm asking is I found this: https://wiki.openttd.org/Game_script#Activating_Gamescripts and this: http://nogo.openttd.org/api/1.3.3/index.html
16:48<cib>That seems a much more convenient approach to scripting the game, and I was wondering if something like that existed for modifying said vehicle stats, prices, etc.
16:49<andythenorth>nope

16:53<@Alberth>they exist and operate at different levels
16:54<cib>"world control" seems limited when you can't even control how much an industry is paying for transporting their goods =)
16:54<cib>But then, I have only a user's POV on the game.
16:55<Xaroth|Work>world control is done by the server
16:55<Xaroth|Work>newgrf changes the 'game rules'
16:55<Xaroth|Work>all clients need the same newgrf set as the server
16:55<andythenorth>these electric trains are not that fast
16:55<Xaroth|Work>whereas only the server requires the ai or nogo scripts
16:55<andythenorth>6,400hp, 155mph
16:55<@Alberth>andythenorth: add mooaar
16:55<andythenorth>but they take a long time to accelerate
16:55<andythenorth>maybe 2?

17:44<Eddi|zuHause>Gallomimia: if you have cargo distribution enabled (in 1.4.0) there is a graph that shows how overloaded your transport links are
17:45<Eddi|zuHause>otherwise it's not easy to calculate, so the game does not do it for you
17:45<Eddi|zuHause>in general, look at the stockpile and the station rating of your stations
17:46<Gallomimia>cargo.... distribution
17:46<Eddi|zuHause>if high stockpile, add more vehicles
17:46<Eddi|zuHause>if low rating, add more vehicles
17:46<Flygon>It's basically a method of driving you nuts as commuters jam your buses and trams over capacity
17:46<Gallomimia>station rating is a mystery to me. but i've been watching the stockpile as a general guideline
17:46<Flygon>And you literally can't run more buses or trams :P
17:46<Eddi|zuHause>station rating is mostly how often a vehicle appears at the station
17:46<andythenorth>hmm
17:46<Gallomimia>Flygon: Eddi|zuHause is it an addon or an option?
17:47<andythenorth>sometimes it would be nice to be able to bin a cargo from a station
17:47<Flygon>In 1.4.0? An option
17:47<Eddi|zuHause>Gallomimia: it's an option in 1.4.0-beta, but not in 1.3.3
17:47<Gallomimia>ah. it looks like i'm running 1.3
17:47<Gallomimia>1.3.1 :/ odd that

18:09<frosch123>i thought that is the best part
18:10<Flygon>It looks awesome in the end
18:10<Flygon>But it's still tedious :P
18:11<Eddi|zuHause>the biggest pain of that is that you can't terraform a railway bank without affecting half the map
18:11<Eddi|zuHause>plus the lack of diagonal inclinations
18:11<Flygon>Exactly
18:12<Flygon>Diagonal inclinations lacking are the most annoying part
18:12<Eddi|zuHause>but i don't see a sensible way to implement them. diagonals would be twice as steep
18:13<Eddi|zuHause>you get glitches at tile edges and stuff
18:13<Eddi|zuHause>so you'd need something that stretches two or three tiles
18:13<Flygon>Could always build a seperate game that's basically a 3D sandpit that avoids the issues 2D has

19:28<Supercheese>I have a 3D printer... but man, that's something else
19:28<Supercheese>best I've done are keychains really :P
19:28<Supercheese>Hmm, I suppose I could print OTTD vehicles...
19:28<Supercheese>zBase has the models
19:29<Flygon>Dumb question related to that: How difficult (or, more to the point, possible) is it to have vehicles change their sprite not just for the 8 directions, but to smooth out the positions inbetween, and to also account for the slope?
19:29<Gallomimia>i seem to have seriously underestimated the profitability of oil ships on a big map
19:30<Flygon>Or would storing all the necessary sprites in 32bpp format take up too much VRAM?
19:30<Supercheese>I don't think there are even variables to allow for slope...
19:30<Supercheese>curves have magic vars
19:30<Supercheese>dunno about z-height changes
19:30<Flygon>Hmm, alright

19:31<Flygon>Thanks&
19:31<Flygon>...thanks**
19:31<Supercheese>I'd be very interested if someone has a method for slope-sprite display
19:31<Flygon>Though, the real issue is... it's not possible to draw in 2D form unless the artist is REALLY patient
19:32<Supercheese>well, the new pixeltool could automatically interpolate the views
19:32<Flygon>And I'm not sure how much VRAM would be needed for full sized 32bpp sprites, if the z axis could be accounted for
19:32<Supercheese>it takes the 3-anble projection and makes 9-directional isometrics already
19:32<Supercheese>3-angle*
19:32<Flygon>I meant hand pixel art, not 3D render. A sensible person would default to 3D tho
19:32<Flygon>(imagine having to do both curve AND slope... even MORE VRAM taken :D)
19:33<Supercheese>I mean this: http://www.richardwheeler.net/interactive/pixeltool.html
19:33<Supercheese>Code seems like it could be extended for more views
19:33<Flygon>Ahh, right
19:33<Flygon>The voxel tool
19:33<Supercheese>it's a very, very slick tool
19:33<Flygon>I <3 Voxels
19:33<Flygon>Shame they never took off
19:34<Flygon>Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri has absurdly good looking 3D models, thanks to voxels
19:34<Flygon>Shame we're only just cracking the format (Caviar went out of business before the expansion pack was released)
19:35<Supercheese>Age of Empires 2 rendered from 3D models if I'm not mistaken
19:36<Supercheese>not sure what process they used though, and Ensemble is dead
19:36<Flygon>Age of Empires II used pre-rendered 3D models
19:36<Flygon>No voxels
19:36<Flygon>They used bog standard 3D software, nothing was realtime
19:36<Flygon>And rendering the game's units with voxels would've likely killed computers worldwide at the time
19:37<Supercheese>oh, you mean realtime stuff
19:37<Flygon>SMACX only really gets away with it because it's not animating everything 24/7
