02:46<andythenorth>so what shall we do today? o_O
02:47<rubidium>feeding the children?
02:48<supermop>i am drawing a tram in pixel tool
02:53<andythenorth>rubidium: feeding the children now
02:57<andythenorth>V453000: what shall I feed them to?
02:57<V453000>everything you can find
02:58<andythenorth>random running and buy costs?
02:58<andythenorth>because I don’t care
02:59-!-Gallomimia [] has joined #openttd
03:05<V453000>-> make them low for most fun
03:06<andythenorth>here’s how I used to do it
03:06<andythenorth>try and balance against other vehicle sets, try and use buy price as reason to buy vehicle x instead of y, but also run cost as a reason to buy vehicle z instead of x
03:07<andythenorth>then also use price to try and encourage player to choose between transport types
03:07<andythenorth>blah blah blah blah blah boring
03:07<andythenorth>it’s like making a fricking spreadsheet every time you buy a vehicle
03:08<andythenorth>average earnings per mile, cost amortised over vehicle lifetime, factoring in speed, delays, loading speed, acceleration omfg
03:08<andythenorth>and that’s with breakdowns *off* :(
03:08<andythenorth>soooo boring

03:19<supermop>lets just play with an AI who builds all the stuff, and we can be the accountants
03:29<V453000>andythenorth: I just looked at my earlies vehicle, gave it like 8 cost multiplier, and then stepped it out, e.g. 2nd vehicle gets 9, third 10, ...
03:30<V453000>stays cheap and is fun
03:30<V453000>this game isnt about money.
03:31<supermop>jalapeno tequila palomas here
03:32-!-ZirconiumX [] has joined #openttd
03:32<supermop>really should just drink coctails instead of playing the game
03:33<ZirconiumX>supermop: what about children under the age of 18?
03:34<supermop>or those under 21 in the us
03:36<andythenorth>moin planetmaker
03:37<ZirconiumX>Hi planetmaker
03:50<andythenorth>V453000: did you try and balance against other sets at all?
03:50<andythenorth>or just ignored?
04:05<@planetmaker>take a guess, andythenorth :)
04:08<ZirconiumX>Roughly how long is a game day in fast forward?
04:09<@planetmaker>actually. That's even not true
04:10<@planetmaker>It's as long as it takes. Thus somewhere between no time and eons
04:10-!-Midnightmyth [] has joined #openttd
04:10<ZirconiumX>I think FF is causing cargodist some headaches
04:11-!-tokai|mdlx [] has joined #openttd
04:12<@planetmaker>how would it do that?
04:12<@planetmaker>it simply might be that your machine is too slow to actually see an effect when using FF
04:12<ZirconiumX>AMD FX-6300 at 4GHz. Not very slow.
04:13<ZirconiumX>The cursor lags a lot in FF.
04:13<ZirconiumX>It's fine in normal speed, but in FF is seriously lags
04:15<supermop>pub, later
04:15-!-tokai|noir [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
04:18-!-talebowl [] has joined #openttd
04:19<ZirconiumX>The reason I mention cargodist is that when I set cargodist's distribution mode for all cargoes from manual to asymmetric and fast forward, the game doubles its lag.
04:19<@planetmaker>of course
04:19<@planetmaker>it enables a lot of heavy computation
04:20<@planetmaker>lag in FF is totally irrelevant: it means: go as fast as possible on your machine, skipping all wait for input, not trying to keep any specific pace
04:20<@planetmaker>and if you enable more computation, it has to get worse
04:20-!-Devroush [] has joined #openttd
04:21<ZirconiumX>I suppose that's why there is no FF in multiplayer - you'd get desyncs (one of my freidns was complaining abou the lack of FF in multiplayer)
04:27-!-Progman [] has joined #openttd
04:28<Flygon>A lot of my games don't even have FF being usable anyway
04:29<Flygon>Due to the game struggling at normal speed
04:29<Flygon>Old PC

04:52-!-SkeedR [] has joined #openttd
04:52<SkeedR>Morning folk
04:52-!-SkeedR is now known as Guest5501
04:52-!-Guest5501 is now known as SKeedR
04:55<ZirconiumX>Hi SKeedR
04:57<ZirconiumX>OpenTTD - the best get rich quick scheme there is. (Apart from Ctrl-Alt-C)
04:57<SKeedR>I was wondering if there's any way to get OpenTTD to use more CPU
04:58<SKeedR>4096^2 map?
04:58<ZirconiumX>4096^2 map, high industries, high towns, loads of vehicles moving about, maybe some train logic too, with Cargodist on max settings.
04:59<ZirconiumX>Then have the entire thing on fast forward
04:59<SKeedR>But pressing fastforward doesn't have any noticeable effect on game speed
05:00<@planetmaker>hehe. Then you should not use such big map
05:00<SKeedR>What I mean is, it only seems to use 25% CPU across four cores. I'm assuming in that case that it's not multi-threaded
05:01<rubidium>not that discussion AGAIN
05:01<@planetmaker>look at and search for it, SKeedR
05:01<rubidium>it is multithreaded as far as it reasonably can be
05:01<@planetmaker>it has all the answers ^
05:01<SKeedR>Perhaps I just need a better CPU
05:01<@planetmaker>and explanations as to why and how
05:03<SKeedR>I'll have to test it on my Xeons once I get the server running
05:03<ZirconiumX>Be thankful that OpenTTD is so lightweight.
05:03<rubidium>if you enable autosave, and for some reason your CPU is incredibly slow at compressing, and your CPU is incredibly slow at playing music, and your CPU takes a huge amount of cycles to push pixels to the GPU, then you'll use 100% of your four cores
05:03<@planetmaker>don't forget cargodist overlays
05:04<ZirconiumX>Laugh at the BF4 players who struggle to get 30 FPS, while we can cruise away at 60 FPS on an AMD Athlon X2.
05:04<rubidium>hmm... good point... with a "well" designed network and the appropriate configuration settings you might be able to reach 100% on 32+ cores
05:05<SKeedR>I think I'll have to shelve this game until I can get better performance for it :/
05:05<ZirconiumX>rubidium - make sure to have a software synthesizer like fluidsynth with everything to the max and 128 kHz sample rate with floating-point numbers.
05:06<rubidium>unless... maybe the 25% CPU is because OpenTTD is mostly waiting in getting the pixels to the GPU
05:06<ZirconiumX>SKeedR - you have just commited an act of treason.
05:06-!-Pensacola [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:06<ZirconiumX>OpenTTD is using 6.6% CPU on a moderately complex network.
05:06-!-lofejndif [] has joined #openttd
05:06<ZirconiumX>For me
05:06<rubidium>if that doesn't happen fast enough, then OpenTTD internally is just idling but waiting for the pixels to be pushed causing 100% CPU on one core
05:07-!-Wolf01 [] has joined #openttd
05:07*rubidium reached a 25-50% improvement in some cases when putting the pixel pushing into a separate thread
05:08<ZirconiumX>Hi Wolf01
05:08<SKeedR>Imma see what a 4096*1024 is like
05:09<ZirconiumX>That won't be any faster
05:09<ZirconiumX>That'll be slower
05:09<@planetmaker>SKeedR, my usual maps are 512^2
05:09<SKeedR>How do you come to that ZirconiumX ?
05:09<Flygon>There's one issue with 4096^2 map
05:09<Flygon>The 5000 cap on road vehicles per company
05:10<Flygon>And by extension, the 16-bit integer cap for entire games across all companies
05:10<ZirconiumX>Because OpenTTD will have more town and industries to sort through.
05:10<ZirconiumX>If you want a fast game, try 256^2.
05:10<Wolf01>I play usually on 256^2
05:11<rubidium>which 16 bit cap?
05:11<Wolf01>but not for speed, just because I've nothing too big to do :D
05:11<SKeedR>Seems fast enough on 4096*1024
05:11<rubidium>isn't the vehicle number per company per vehicle type?
05:11<@planetmaker>SKeedR, the game will get more heavy if you start playing and developing it
05:11<Flygon>Also what'd be really neat, is if we made a USA map from Frontier times (eg. spawning towns date accurate), on a 16384^2 map, get the appropriate sets made, and have a group of 256 people split across 16 companies in individual rooms with networked computers having cargodist and infrastructure sharing enabled
05:12<Flygon>And see the natural evolution of a transportation network O_O
05:12<Flygon>We'd need some damned good PCs though... and a good network
05:12<@planetmaker>we'd need a new game ;)
05:12<Flygon>And uncapping of the vehicle limits
05:12<Flygon>Nah, we don't need a new game
05:12-!-frosch123 [] has joined #openttd
05:12<Flygon>Just proper infrastructure sharing, uncapping of the map sizes, and a lot of RAM and CPU :B
05:13<Flygon>...and a limit on boats
05:13<ZirconiumX>Yeah, OpenTTD would be capable of doing that. For a while.
05:13<rubidium>remove the caps?
05:14<SKeedR>FIRS industry placement seems rather awful lately. I'm sure it was better before
05:14<rubidium>lowering the aircraft cap to 1280 is even realistic
05:14*ZirconiumX dreams of the days of a 65535^2 map. Wouldn't happen on modern computers
05:16<rubidium>for train 15k might be more "realistic" though ;)
05:18<rubidium>and... why do I keep procrastinating?!?
05:19<@planetmaker>it's weekend, rubidium :)
05:20<rubidium>yeah, but getting groceries at the last minute kinda sucks in this case
05:20<rubidium>... like ... it's going to rain
05:21<frosch123>it's already raining
05:21<frosch123>just started
05:22<Wolf01>it's raining here too
05:22<frosch123>so, it's quite a good move to go shopping way later :p
05:22<ZirconiumX>Still dry here, but it's threatening to rain
05:23<frosch123>global climate :p
05:24<ZirconiumX>planetmaker - sorry, I was wrong. Running OpenTTD on FF makes *X* lag, not OpenTTD.
05:25-!-Myhorta [] has joined #openttd
05:26<ZirconiumX>Disabling composition solves the lag, though OpenTTD is now using 90% of one CPU core

06:23<Flygon>What'd be neat is
06:23<Flygon>Is a feature to progressively release vehicles from depots
06:24<Flygon>Like ships and trams
06:24<Flygon>To prevent clumping
06:24<@planetmaker>search for self-regulating networks
06:25<Flygon>I cbf effort :B
06:25<@planetmaker>all vehicles at once is not possible anyway ;)
06:25<Flygon>But, fiine, you've made your point x3
06:25<Flygon>It is with Ships
06:25<Flygon>Just click that tiny little Green button in the ship depot
06:25<Flygon>Cue every ship moving at once
06:34-!-gelignite [] has joined #openttd
06:35<Flygon>Is it normal for OTTD to randomly stall then unstall?
06:35<LordAro>probably not
06:36<Flygon>I've dun guud then
06:41-!-andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
06:44<@peter1138>Can happen with millions of ships with awkward routes.
06:47<Flygon>This's only going to get worse then
06:47<Flygon>Because I just built over 150 Hoverboats whizzing along Thames
06:47<talebowl>Hi, I've got a question about the NetworkContent gui code. I'm a bit new to C++, and I don't really understand how Stringfilter (bool*) matches GUIList's F (char*). Sure, they're both pointers, so the size would be the same, but the referencing types are different? (Am I approaching this with too much of an OOP-mindset? (My background is in Java/C#))
06:47<talebowl>Additionally, as GUIList doesn't actually use the F itself, but just passes it around, I'd suppose that, if I wanted to create a second filtering, I'd be fine creating a function that mimicks the header and black-box behaviour of the other FilterFunction (in this case NetworkContentListWindow::TagNameFilter). (I suppose that isn't a very clean approach, so for an actual forum patch, it wouldn't be very viable, but as a temporary impl
06:47<talebowl>ementation, it'd be good enough).
06:51<Flygon>I wonder if intentionally building lots of boats on random MP servers will get me kicked out...
06:51<Flygon>We determined the max we can launch at one on my net connection is around 250 in a game

07:00<LordAro>talebowl, i don't know the details of your question, but you may be approaching it with too much of a OOP mindset - remember that OTTD started out in C and still looks quite a lot like C in places
07:01<andythenorth>SKeedR: better before what?
07:02<SKeedR>I'm not sure. It seems to have changed at some point though.
07:02<andythenorth>that’s useful
07:02<andythenorth>I’ll definitely look into it
07:03<SKeedR>Sorry, I'll see if I can do some testing and let you know what I find
07:05*andythenorth Horses
07:05<andythenorth>would this be a box van, open wagon, or flat car?
07:05-!-yorick [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
07:05<andythenorth>obviously it’s actually a bulkhead flat with tarpaulin cover, but I don’t have a class for that :P
07:08*andythenorth votes box van
07:17<supermop>replying to threads with no other replies after several beers leads to even more rambling and inchoate messages than i usually leave
07:18<supermop>seems functionally equivalent to a boxcar anyway andythenorth

08:32*andythenorth is hoping for 5:1
08:33<frosch123>play freerct
08:33<+michi_cc>frosch123: No idea, but if NewGRFs could supply stereo, somebody would still do it...
08:33<andythenorth>also, FIRS could use some industry sounds
08:33<andythenorth>who likes foley, and has Audacity?
08:35<juzza1>interesting Wikipedia article
08:35<juzza1>"A pair of gloves sounds like bird wings flapping"
08:36<@planetmaker>I was at a live performance of an audio drama last week. They had the person who created the sounds also live on stage
08:36<@planetmaker>That was really interesting to see
08:41<andythenorth>smashing an apple is a good kill-the-monster noise

09:50<andythenorth>does cargo rot at transfer stations?
09:54<LordAro>iirc, yes
09:54<LordAro>not as fast as normal though
09:54<frosch123>rotting depends only on the cargo rating
09:55<frosch123>if there is a rating and it is lower than 25% or so, it rots
09:55<frosch123>if there is no rating, you are lucky
09:57<@planetmaker>hm. So you can pile infinite amounts as long as you don't start picking up that cargo?
09:58<frosch123>i am not sure, iirc it got even broken at some point
09:58<frosch123>so it only gets a rating if stuff is actually deliverd from industry, not just transfered
09:58<frosch123>no idea whether that was fixed

10:00<Dan9550>Could someone tell me why the music doesn't work on Ubuntu 13.10 even when OpenMSX and timidity is installed?
10:02<@peter1138>Cos the music smells.
10:02<Dan9550>:( but i can't play without the music
10:02<LordAro>this was discussed yesterday
10:02<LordAro>something to do with pulseaudio, iirc
10:03<andythenorth>hmm, so matching ‘container’ capacity across trains / ships / trucks isn’t stupid
10:03<Dan9550>ahh, pulse... anyone find a workaround?
10:04<@planetmaker>that actually makes sense, yes, andythenorth
10:05<@planetmaker>having ships come in sizes which are multiple of 'standard trains'
10:05<@planetmaker>(e.g. 5-tile or so)
10:05<@peter1138>Is there a global game tick counter?
10:05<@peter1138>There's _tick_counter which is only 16 bit... seems low.
10:06<LordAro>Dan9550, they did
10:06<Eddi|zuHause>peter1138: afair, only the day counter is "high"
10:06<LordAro>if my browser would work, i'd find it for you
10:07<@peter1138>Hmm, _realtime_ticks might be what I want.
10:07<Dan9550>oh so i got it to work by manuall starting a timitidy server, music doesn't autoplay on the menu like it used tot though
10:07<@peter1138>That goes up when it's paused, yes?
10:07<Eddi|zuHause>never seen that before
10:07<frosch123>i think so
10:08<LordAro>Dan9550, it might be paused ingame (you can't access it from the main menu)
10:09<@peter1138>Which is in debug.h... uh...
10:10<@peter1138>Why is it in debug? :S
10:10<Dan9550>LordAro thanks
10:12<@planetmaker>I wonder whether LordAro want to put that in the wiki or in the FAQ :P
10:12<Eddi|zuHause>peter1138: maybe you should really use (date/(dayelength*(1<<16)))*(1<<16)+ticks
10:13<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: we should have put the jukebox on the main menu like 5 years ago

10:15<LordAro>planetmaker, nah :p
10:15<LordAro>you can do that ;)
10:17<@peter1138>Eddi|zuHause, I don't want the game date.

12:56<mg_>i have some newgrfs, when i open 'check online content' window, it does its stuff and upgrades button becomes active. so i click it, it downloads upgrades, but all of them are previous versions of newgrfs i already have. for example, i have OpenGFX_Trees-0.8.0 and upgrade is OpenGFX_Trees-0.2.2 and so on. how does that work?
12:57<@planetmaker>maybe you also update some scenarios which use old versions?
12:57-!-andythenorth [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:58<mg_>i don't have any other addons besides newgrfs
12:58<@planetmaker>you never downloaded a scenario?
12:58<mg_>no, i didn't
12:58<mg_>only newgrfs
13:00<@planetmaker>not sure I can follow / reproduce what you describe
13:01<@planetmaker>can you document that by screenshots?
13:01<@planetmaker>and / or file listings of the content_download and newgrf dirs?
13:02<@planetmaker>I know that that will be a pain to do :( But I've no clue
13:02<@planetmaker>and I don't see it happening
13:03<mg_>sure, i can do that
13:04<@planetmaker>you didn't access the download content when trying to load a specific savegame, no?
13:07<mg_>no. i didnt
13:07<mg_>one minute, i will document it with screenshots :)

13:34<mg_>planetmaker: basically the order is: i installed 1.4, never played previous versions. downloaded some newgrfs, i didn't start a new game yet, opened content download and there are upgrades available. so i upgrade and it downloads previous versions although they are not visible in installed newgrfs window in openttd (only most recent version is visible)

13:45<rubidium>some NewGRFs have dependencies on other NewGRFs. That dependency is for a specific version

13:46<@planetmaker>newgrfs depending on other newgrfs most often is stupid. I'm suprised any NewGRF depends on opengfx+trees
13:46<@planetmaker>it's known for the av8 sets...
13:46<mg_>oh ok, so it downloads previous versions evenif newer is available ?
13:47<@planetmaker>one can only set dependency to a specific version
13:48<mg_>i see
13:48<mg_>ok then :)
13:48<@planetmaker>thank you though, too :)
13:48<mg_>false alarm :P
13:49<@planetmaker>I'm truely suprised by pure newgrf cross-dependencies set, tbh
13:49<@planetmaker>I know can think of one, where I believe that both are on bananas
13:51<@planetmaker>but I see that you use the one programme which I always install first, if I have to install a windows: total commander ;)
13:51<mg_>so i gave you something to think about ;)
13:51<@planetmaker>ok, 2nd. after firefox
13:51<mg_>yea. i cannot function without tc on windows :)
13:52<@planetmaker>you should convert to linux ;)
13:52<@planetmaker>tc is the compromise which lets me work on windows, though
13:53<mg_>i've been using linux for 10 years or so. at home and work. i switched to windows couple years ago :)

16:36*Zuu is having GS ideas
16:37<frosch123>andy is not here, they are safe to discuss :)
16:37<Zuu>Its the same basic ideas that I've been thinking about the last year or so. :-)
16:37<Zuu>Eg. how to bring the tickets in ticket to ride into OpenTTD in some form.
16:41<Zuu>I first was thinking about making a stand alone GS, but now I'm more thinking about extending NoCarGoal so that there is a config option on how sources/targets are activated. Current NoCarGoal would get all towns activated at start. A new mode could then be that you can draw 5 ticket cards and have to pick at least two Twon <-> Town relations. Only cargo from (houses or industries) between these two tows will count towards the medal goal. There will need to be
16:41<Zuu> some bookkeeping and some punnishment if you do not suceed to connect a ticket by the end of the game.
16:42<Zuu>Or you must complete the current tickets before you can get new ones, which you will likely want to do in order for having more transport to count towards the medal goals.
16:43<frosch123>hmm, are you sure you can reach the nocargoal if you are only allowed to use certain routes
16:44<Zuu>It will be harder to reach those goals, so if a such game you will need to lower that goal.
16:44<frosch123>i mean you do not have quite control over how many stuff there will be to transport, would there?
16:45<frosch123>would it get lucky depending on the picks?
16:45-!-Supercheese [~Superchee@] has quit [Quit: Valete omnes]
16:45<Zuu>No, but that is already true that two random NoCarGoal games can have different difficulty. Though at the moment the difficulty level is equal for all companies.
16:47-!-lofejndif [] has joined #openttd
16:48<Zuu>But yes, that is an issue with the whole tickets idea, especially if each company get unique tickets, then it may be more out of luck what picks you get compared to your competitors.
16:50<Zuu>Another problem is that the activated zones will be all houses + industries beloning to a town, and especially the industries may be a bit unclear for some users what town an industry belongs to.
16:50<frosch123>oh, you want to attach it to towns?
16:50<frosch123>i thought specific industries
16:51<Zuu>NoCarGoal count delivery of all cargo related to towns.
16:51<frosch123>industries can be quite far away from towns
16:52<frosch123>in sv i scan for industries, and observe each by their own
16:52<Zuu>Its quite a lot easier to just count all cargo types via towns than figuring out what cargos that can/should be counted on industries and what to count via towns and be sure to not miss out anything or count anything twice.
16:55-!-KritiK [] has joined #openttd
16:55<Zuu>Oh, and I just realized that GS doesn't know in what relation you transport, only amount in/out from town/industry.
16:56<Zuu>(have known this before, but forgot about this now)
16:57<frosch123>hmm, true
16:58<Zuu>So it will probably end up with some sort of contract/mini-game to enable sources/sinks. rather than relations. Or a stand alone GS only focused on this.

17:13<frosch123>i wonder whether we should abuse cargodist for gs purposes
17:13<@peter1138>I miss running sounds :S
17:13<frosch123>if we expose the "planned flow", gs can easily figure out a lot about cargo flows
17:14<frosch123>if the gs forces cargodist to be active
17:16<frosch123>hmm, or would link capacity be more useful?
17:17-!-Djohaal [~Djohaal@] has joined #openttd
17:22<Zuu>From GS perspective, having to work with stations is in my view mostly an unwanted complexity. But if you want ot analyze cargodist stats you'll end up with that path.
17:23<frosch123>well, i have been wondering how to track which vehicles and stations are involved in transport for a while :)
17:24<frosch123>i want a gs where you score for transfering stuff between different vehicle types
17:24<frosch123>and punish waiting cargo
17:24<frosch123>the latter is possible, the former not quite
17:24<frosch123>but the linkgraph does essentially do the former
17:25<Zuu>GS now know from where waiting cargo came from, but that is mostly just an effect of that AIs now got this information and GS got it too if anyone find use for it.
17:26<frosch123>yeah, but that only works for waiting cargo
17:26<frosch123>it would at least need the same for cargo inside a vehicle
17:26<@peter1138>Hmm, so I made audio better, but...
17:26<@peter1138>Needs changes to... the video drivers.
17:26<frosch123>but, the linkgraph would be even better, since yuo cannot cheat it
17:27<frosch123>peter1138: can you loop sound effects?
17:27<Zuu>I like your idea to score usage of different transport modes.
17:28<frosch123>i dream about a nocargoal where only cargo scores that has been transfered at least 10 times, between at least 3 types of transport :p
17:29<@peter1138>No, that requires a spec change.
17:29<@peter1138>And... some way to stop it, heh.
17:29<@peter1138>But at least sounds are appropriately timed now.
17:30<frosch123>have they not been before?
17:30<@peter1138>It's always been "play as soon as possible"
17:30<@peter1138>Well, not really.
17:30<@peter1138>It's always been "play at the start of the next cycle"
17:31<@peter1138>Basically means that different buffer sizes produces different audio.
17:32<frosch123>so, you now add sounds to a busy buffer, which is already playing?
17:32<frosch123>does that even work?
17:32<frosch123>or did you make the buffer smaller? :p
17:32<@peter1138>No, that's not possible.
17:33<@peter1138>Well, it is in certain cases when you can an audio API designed for it, which we don't.
17:33<frosch123>last time i did sound was in dos, with dma transfer :p
17:34<@peter1138>Yeah, feel free to write to the DMA buffer whereever, in that case :D
17:34<frosch123>but then i started muting games and listen to music instead
17:38<@peter1138>Anyway, as we can't go back in time (yet), the solution is to add timing to the sound events, and delay playback.
17:40<frosch123>when is that useful?
17:40<@peter1138>1) when you have a large buffer
17:40<@peter1138>2) when you have running sounds playing

20:58<Eddi|zuHause><frosch123> if we expose the "planned flow", gs can easily figure out a lot about cargo flows <-- how about forcefully disconnecting links (city A puts an embargo on city B)
21:22<Flygon>You guys want to make a North-South Korea scenario with Cargodist where NK and SK randomly embargo eachother?
