04:20<andythenorth>Pikkaphone: lo bob
04:20<Pikkaphone>lo
04:21<andythenorth>and AV9, it’s the worst thing ever
04:21<Pikkaphone>you have hoss?
04:21<andythenorth>I am actually offended that you even considered making it
04:21<Pikkaphone>is it? It doesn't have ranges
04:22*andythenorth could never run a blag with comments on it
04:22<andythenorth>people would be wrong on my internet
04:22<andythenorth>also I have hoss
04:22<Pikkaphone>people can be wrong
04:22<Pikkaphone>clearly
04:23<andythenorth>also brake vans
04:23<andythenorth>they’re wrong
04:23<Pikkaphone>mmmm, hoss
04:24<Pikkaphone>brake vans are a bad feature
04:24<Pikkaphone>cabeese are fine though
04:24<andythenorth>I have cabeesed my brakes
04:24<andythenorth>at least in code
04:24<Pikkaphone>I have fixed your doorbell from the ringing
04:25<andythenorth>thanks
04:25<Pikkaphone>there is no charge
04:25<andythenorth>it has been sticky
04:25<andythenorth>I keep having to talk myself out of ‘ideas’ :P
04:25<andythenorth>latest bad feature: wagons go slower if no brake van
04:25<Pikkaphone>such as?
04:25<Pikkaphone>hmmmm
04:25<andythenorth>bad feature
04:25<Pikkaphone>but ai
04:25<Pikkaphone>and bad feature
04:26<Pikkaphone>brake van tycoon
04:26<andythenorth>also more narrow gauge wagons, with different speed limits
04:26<andythenorth>bad feature
04:26<andythenorth>45mph -> 55mph, who cares?
04:27<andythenorth>just auto-replace management bollocks
04:27<Pikkaphone>not me
04:27<andythenorth>that makes two of us
04:27<andythenorth>so that’s everybody
04:27<Pikkaphone>pretty much
04:28*andythenorth deletes cruft
04:28<andythenorth>that FISH set, so crufty
04:28<Pikkaphone>also it means drawing more wogans
04:29<Pikkaphone>narrow gauge ships
04:29<Pikkaphone>with brake vans
04:31<andythenorth>Norris ship
04:31<Pikkaphone>Where's heqboots? I photographed some handy work barges the other day.
04:31<andythenorth>heqboots is an idea I considered
04:31<andythenorth>dredgingsquid
04:31<andythenorth>jackupbargesquid
04:31<andythenorth>heavyliftsquid
04:31<andythenorth>small problem of ‘not useful'
04:32<andythenorth>also there should be a much bigger range of vehicles
04:32<andythenorth>whilst also being a much smaller range of vehicles
04:32<andythenorth>so that I can fit every niche
04:32<andythenorth>I am really in agreement with your idea that niches are over-rated in TTD, and I would like more vehicles for my niches
04:32<V453000>wtf are you considering again andy :D

04:35<andythenorth>V453000: you would enjoy the comments on pikka’s blag http://pikkarail.com/openttd/state-of-the-onion-a-history-and-future-of-my-newgrfs/
04:35-!-abculatter_2 [~abculatte@135.sub-166-167-81.myvzw.com] has joined #openttd
04:35<andythenorth>except there’s one from V453000 who is rubbish
04:37<V453000>:d
04:41<V453000>the comments do not seem very interesting
04:41<V453000>just shows that people are a bunch of spoilt fuckers who think one is going to upkeep their grfs forever and in ALL the possible ways
04:42<andythenorth>I’ll do that!! me! me!
04:42<V453000>admittedly making UKRS/NARS2 open sourced might be a great idea Pikkaphone
04:42<andythenorth>NewNARS
04:42<andythenorth>nmlNARS
04:42<andythenorth>NARSNARS
04:43<andythenorth>NARSRenewal
04:43<V453000>noregearingNARS
04:43<Pikkaphone>I've said anyone who wants to use those graphics can, v
04:43<V453000>oh, sorry then :)
04:43<abculatter_2>So, I had an idea for a new climate, wanted to see how feasible it would be before signing up for an account to post it: Interplanetary, which would, instead of water terrain, there would be 'Space' or 'Void' tiles. These would, if possible, count as a huge number of tiles when calculating distance for profit, but can only be traversed by expensive spacecraft, which would replace boats with spaceship yards replacing shipyards.
04:43<abculatter_2>Additionally, land would generate in circles of (usually) one type of terrain, which would each have their own industries and requirements for town growth. (For example, a 'Terran' terrain would have agriculture, water, and oxygen, as well as many large cities and end-of-the-line industries that consume but don't produce, but have few processing and mineral-type industries.)
04:43<Pikkaphone>nars is mostly dan's work anyway
04:44<abculatter_2>As an example
04:44<V453000>right
04:44<Pikkaphone>also, uranium?
04:44<abculatter_2>Yes uranium
04:44<andythenorth>I suspect NARS 2 + Canset stuff might just show up as hosses
04:44<abculatter_2>I support uranium
04:44<andythenorth>but without all that realism bollocks
04:44<Pikkaphone>yes but yeti uranium?
04:45<andythenorth>radioactive snowman
04:45<V453000>what is up with yeti uranium? :D
04:45<andythenorth>abominable!
04:45*andythenorth should go to the workings
04:45<andythenorth>important things to do
04:45<Pikkaphone>cargo classes, apparently
04:45<andythenorth>always troubles
04:45<Pikkaphone>good luck andy
04:45<V453000>mhm
04:45<andythenorth>I shall
04:45<andythenorth>I shall luck good

04:46<Pikkaphone>abculatter: I think similar things have been suggested, go and check the forums :)
04:47<V453000>https://paste.openttdcoop.org/p9povmbzp
04:47<V453000>CC_HAZARDOUS
04:48<V453000>there is some wtf with cargoes in general with yeti
04:48<V453000>only nuts seems to work, even with the default labels
04:49<abculatter_2>Also, is there a mod for making industry in general a bit more complex?
04:50<V453000>yeti/firs/ecs/pikka basic industries
04:51<abculatter_2>So many acronyms
04:52<abculatter_2>I don't see YETI on the wiki mod list?
04:53<Pikkaphone>few vehicle sets define a vehicle for that cargo label.
04:54<Pikkaphone>it's probably best to add another... Then for vehicles, exclude hazardous from the vehicles you don't want carrying uranium.
04:54<V453000>wiki mod list
04:54<V453000>?
04:55<abculatter_2>http://wiki.openttd.org/NewGRF_List
04:55<V453000>mhm perhaps bulk
04:55<V453000>but no set has uranium sprites anyway
04:56<Pikkaphone>they still have to be able to carry it
04:56<Pikkaphone>that's the whole point of cargo classes
04:56<V453000>true
04:56<V453000>abculatter_2: that page is quite outdated/incomplete :)
04:56<V453000>e.g. NUTS trains arent even there
04:57<abculatter_2>Figured as much, I'm looking through the in-game list now
04:58<V453000>that is considerably better :P
04:59<Pikkaphone>someone suggests a newgrf review "magazine" every now and then
04:59<Pikkaphone>but no one ever sticks with it
05:00<V453000>bananas would have to get that, upkeeping any secondary site would be hell
05:00<Pikkaphone>eh
05:00<V453000>like a store inside of openttd
05:01<Pikkaphone>a review blog could work

05:02<V453000>sure but inside of the game you could easily just click to download it etc
05:04<Pikkaphone>ottd:// protocol
05:04<Pikkaphone>install newgrf from your browser
05:04<V453000>or that
05:04<Pikkaphone>great feature
05:04<Pikkaphone>doesn't it
05:05<V453000>yarr
05:05<V453000>go make it :D
05:06<abculatter_2>Who is the author of YETI?
05:07<V453000>it is written there?
05:08<abculatter_2>It is a collaborative work? Or open-source? What does YETI even stand for?
05:08<V453000>https://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/yeti
05:09<abculatter_2>Yeah I'm looking at that site
05:09<V453000>1 author, many translator
05:09<V453000>license is CC BY SA I believe
05:09<abculatter_2>Ah, okay.
05:10<Pikkaphone>what a ridiculous license
05:10<abculatter_2>I take it 'manager' is the author?
05:10<V453000>yes
05:10<V453000>Pikkaphone: does its job doesnt it? :d
05:11<Pikkaphone>does it?
05:11<V453000>dunno had no lawsuits yet :D
05:12<Pikkaphone>okay
05:13<Pikkaphone>something to do this weekend, then
05:13<V453000>why is CC BY SA that bad then?
05:13<Pikkaphone>eh
05:13<Pikkaphone>they're all silly
05:13<V453000>what do you mean
05:14<Pikkaphone>if you're not suing anyone
05:14<V453000>well sure but the people who would like to eventually like to use my work cant just go and assume that I wont sue them :P
05:15<Pikkaphone>also, the world seems to think any cc license means "put the license info at the bottom and you can use this photo for anything"
05:16<V453000>doesnt really matter, I dont need to disallow anything
05:16<Pikkaphone>if my recent uni experience is anything to go by
05:16<@peter1138>NC/ND is the stupid one.
05:17<Pikkaphone>your face is the stupid one
05:19<Pikkaphone>but yeah, people use ND photos in presentations and videos all the time
05:19<Pikkaphone>silly people, silly license

05:27<abculatter_2>Soooo, just finished reading http://blog.openttdcoop.org/2014/04/09/yeti-extended-towns-industries/ , I like the 'bring workers for more yield but you don't need them' bit.
05:28<Pikkaphone>yeti is pro
05:29<Pikkaphone>32bpp and all
05:30<@peter1138>Until we next change how 32bpp works
05:30<Pikkaphone> fiendish!

05:43<abculatter_2>Uh, how do I download this here? http://bundles.openttdcoop.org/firs/releases/
05:44<abculatter_2>Nevermind
05:45<abculatter_2>Didn't know you were supposed to check the little checkbox to download stuff, would be nice if that had a label or something...
05:46<andythenorth>there’s a little checkbox? :o
05:46<andythenorth>might be browser specific
05:46<andythenorth>no checkbox for me
05:47<andythenorth>also can someone just 32bpp all my stuff, ta
05:48<abculatter_2>Oh, uh, I meant in-game
05:49<abculatter_2>I probably should have specified that
05:50<abculatter_2>I really, REALLY wish there was a way to increase the interface size/zoom in the interface... Unless there is a way that I haven't found?
05:53<Pikkaphone>andythenorth : just increase the colour depth in photogimp? 32bpp achieved. :D
05:54<Pikkaphone>is dan still talking about drawing ez?
05:55<Pikkaphone>Oh
05:56<Pikkaphone>that tasmanian sheep
05:56<Pikkaphone>didn't even break the record, in the end
05:57<Pikkaphone>shameful display
06:00<andythenorth>Pikkaphone: sometimes we smoke some crack and talk about drawing 2x
06:00<andythenorth>I even considered redrawing FIRS @2x
06:00<andythenorth>and as I said to a passing flying pig, the work would be worth it
06:01<andythenorth>I have enough to do retina-ising all the internet images in my life :P

06:03<abculatter_2>Please continue

06:48<@peter1138>fonts and font sizes
06:50<abculatter_2>Set it to what? There's no default value for any of the font sizes in the config.
06:52-!-Pikka [~Octomom@d58-106-43-139.rdl801.qld.optusnet.com.au] has joined #openttd
06:52<abculatter_2>And both 'true' and '1' caused an error
06:53<abculatter_2>peter1138?
06:54<Pikka>set the font to the name of a font on your computer
06:54<Pikka>set the size to the point size you want
06:55<Pikka>10-12 is "normal size" text, higher numbers are bigger
06:55<abculatter_2>Huh
06:55<abculatter_2>Thanks
06:55<Pikka>you'
06:55<Pikka>re
06:55<Pikka>welcome
06:55<abculatter_2>lol
06:58<abculatter_2>What are the generic 'small_size' settings?
06:58<abculatter_2>And what is Mono size?
06:59<Pikka>by default, I believe, OpenTTD uses the character sprites out of the base set if no font is specified, so it's no size as such
07:00<abculatter_2>"no size as such"?
07:00<Pikka>it's using sprites, rather than a truetype font
07:01<Pikka>https://wiki.openttd.org/Unicode
07:01<Pikka>somewhat out of date I think, but it gives you the idea
07:01<abculatter_2>Yes I already found that page
07:02<abculatter_2>Oh, just realized I misread a part of it
07:02<abculatter_2>Okay now things make sense
07:02<abculatter_2>Still dont know what mono_size is
07:02<abculatter_2>though
07:02<Pikka>me neither
07:03<abculatter_2>lol
07:04<abculatter_2>Hmmm... Is there a place that I can reliably find font files on my computer, or should I just download one?
07:04<Pikka>I use Calibri
07:04<Pikka>if you want to see a list, probably the easiest way is to start up the word processor of your choice
07:04<Pikka>a list of what you have, that is
07:05<abculatter_2>Well yeah, but I meant where are those fonts actually stored? Since the wiki seems to say that you need the file path
07:05<Pikka>you don't
07:05<Pikka>that's out of date afaia
07:07<abculatter_2>So there's a default font storage folder somewhere?
07:07<Pikka>possibly. but if you just give it the font name it will ask your OS and it will find it, in the same way your word processor does.
07:08<Pikka>I could be wrong, try it and see.

07:41<andythenorth>probably
07:42<@planetmaker>power doesn't increase max speed. But it increases the force which can be exerted
07:43<abculatter_2>Is there a way to extend a train station without just adding another station to one end?
07:43<@planetmaker>with sufficient power the max speed won't be changed when going uphill.

07:44<b_jonas>abculatter_2: you can just demolish the station and build a new one in its place

08:08<andythenorth>autorefittings is or was quite broken
08:09<andythenorth>I proved it with a savegame and everything
08:09<andythenorth>not even FUD
08:10<abculatter_2>Why isn't there just a button in the station GUI for turning on/off what the station accepts from nearby industries?
08:10<Pikka>because you didn't code such a feature yet
08:11<Pikka>have you just discovered why the "station doesn't begin accumulating materials" feature exists? ;)
08:12<Pikka>where is that setting anyway, I can't find it D:
08:13<abculatter_2>Well, it's just a logical thing to have, doesn't really take much playing before you realize that sometimes you don't want passengers accumulating in your oil well station. Plus, whole reason I'm playing OTTD is because I used to play Locomotion, and if I remember correctly that had a feature similar to what's in OTTD

09:35<Pikka>he's complaining that his train takes a long time and his station ratings drop while it's travelling
09:35<abculatter_2>No, it's not just when it's traveling
09:35<V453000>to use multiple trains on the track so that your rating never drops since train is always loading
09:35<Pikka>because if your station rating isn't 100% you're doing something wrong
09:35<V453000>93% ;)
09:36<Pikka>andy; it's 80-odd mph?
09:36<Pikka>255 / 3.2?
09:36<abculatter_2>Sigh... So basically you're forced to make every train line have at least two trains in it?
09:36<Pikka>no
09:37<Pikka>you could also not care about the station rating. as long as the train gets a load and makes money.
09:37<V453000>^
09:38<V453000>you are not forced to do anything but if you want your industries to have good % transported and hence increase production (original industries work that way), you need to have a train always loading, yes

09:44<abculatter_2>Anyway, the local station rating, from what I can tell, seems to be the percentage of stuff produced local industries will give you to be transported
09:45<abculatter_2>Am I mistaken in this?
09:45<Pinkbeast>Station rating looks a bit odd sometimes (especially for pax, IIRC)
09:45<Pikka>more or less. but if your one slow train goes a long way, doesn't it get a decent load anyway?
09:46<abculatter_2>Not really.
09:48<abculatter_2>Only getting 20-40% of an industry's output really isn't very much, especially since I tried to do this as my first thing. Not only was the train slow, but also usually only came back half full when it wasn't on 'wait for full load'
09:48<Pinkbeast>You may as well leave it loading until it's full; then it will always run full and rating will be less bad.
09:49<abculatter_2>That didn't really help much. It did help, though.
09:50<Pinkbeast>Two short trains? They can run with only one additional platform and a little trackwork at the loading station.
09:52<abculatter_2>Yeah, that seems like the only option there really is... I was hoping to be able to avoid signals and be lazy, oh well.

15:32<andythenorth>nah
15:34<andythenorth>Alberth: we considered doing everything in 0.5 or 1.0 lengths
15:34<andythenorth>but it’s a bit limiting
15:35<@Alberth>I can imagine, it's more along V's street
15:35<@Alberth>if you add a car, you get 5.0 and 5.1, which is unfortunate
15:36<andythenorth>sad :(
15:36<andythenorth>don’t have a fix :)
15:38<@Alberth>0-8-0 is faster, the extra power and TE makes the difference
15:39<@Alberth>0-6-0 with coal may theoretically do 88km/h, but it doesn't go faster than 72, the peed of the 0-8-0

15:41<andythenorth>you have 4x weight?

15:44<andythenorth>good to know

16:57<andythenorth>also
16:57<andythenorth>rivers look bad
16:57<FLHerne>Most annoying thing about them is the pathfinder being broken on rivers
16:58<andythenorth>locks are 3 tiles when they should be 2
16:58<andythenorth>pathfinder is very broken
16:58<andythenorth>(allow 90’ turns can help the pathfinder on rivers a bit - it at least stops getting stuck so often)
16:58<andythenorth>building docks on rivers is an abomination
16:58<andythenorth>rivers are never 2 tiles wide
16:58<andythenorth>rivers look bad
16:59<andythenorth>did I cover everything?
16:59<FLHerne>They look alright in valleys, but that needs a custom heightmap
16:59<andythenorth>might as well build a channel at sea level

16:59<andythenorth>at least then you can bridge them for rails / roads

17:45<AndroUser>Hello I want do set up a build environment what do I need on a Windows machine?
17:47<+glx>http://wiki.openttd.org/Compiling_on_Windows_using_Microsoft_Visual_C%2B%2B_2012
17:47<@planetmaker>AndroUser: check the wiki ^
17:47<+glx>should work

17:50<AndroUser>Ok is there any more documentation like java doc?
17:51-!-LSky` [~LSky@5ED4B2EA.cm-7-5c.dynamic.ziggo.nl] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:55<+glx>it's not java
17:57<AndroUser>That's why I wrote "like"
17:57<+glx>but there is doxygen stuff at http://docs.openttd.org/
18:01<AndroUser>Thanks

18:50<FLHerne>That reminds me - is there any higher-level documentation than just each individual class/template?
18:51<FLHerne>I was hacking at the pathfinder a while ago, I couldn't find any info on what exactly YAPF does as an integrated whole

19:47<avdg>FLHerne: does this help? https://wiki.openttd.org/Yet_Another_Pathfinder
19:48<LordAro>no one really understands YAPF very well, it's really badly documented
19:48-!-Supercheese [~Superchee@76.178.136.186] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
19:48<LordAro>it probably wouldn't have been included in trunk nowadays :)
19:49<avdg>documentation :p
19:50<avdg>meh, imo you have to understand the global concept of a pathfinder, then understand the use case in openttd
19:51<LordAro>and then understand the YAPF implementation, which is a whole different story :)
19:51<avdg>yeah
19:51<avdg>it takes a look from different perspectives
19:51<avdg>ofc, undocumented code makes it even harder to understand :/
19:51<avdg>but meh, at least its a way to get close
19:52<avdg>(and meh, don't take my advice literally, everybody is different, you know ;-)
19:53<FLHerne>avdg: Not a huge amount, tbh
19:54<FLHerne>I know pretty much what it does for the outside world, and from that page and the thread I can see kind of how it's supposed to work in theory
19:54-!-tokai|noir [~tokai@00012860.user.oftc.net] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
19:55<FLHerne>But there's no detailed description of the algorithm, and no description at all of how the umpteen nested inherited templates make whatever that is happen

19:56<avdg>I guess the maintainers had to fight with the code
19:57<FLHerne>avdg: The problem is that it's obviously sacrificed simplicity (of implementation at least) to performance ages ago
19:58<avdg>I guess thats a very good point
19:58<avdg>there were a lot of complains about performances
19:58<FLHerne>I wonder if older svn revisions have a version of it before it was optimised beyond uninformed comprehension?

19:59<avdg>?
19:59<avdg>just change the numbers :P
20:00<LordAro>i'm not sure, but i don't think it's been changed significantly since it was implemented
20:01<FLHerne>LordAro: Has anyone besides its author ever understood it, then? :P
20:01<FLHerne>I'd have thought that if they had, that would have had to be written down somewhere to be communicated
20:02<FLHerne>Maybe it's buried in the thread somewhere

20:02<avdg>most coding progress is done by 1 person I guess
20:02<avdg>thats the way programming works
20:02*FLHerne will probably just give up and start from scratch based on OPF's interface
20:06*avdg sees the pathfinders interface simply relies on function calls
20:13<avdg>anyway, gn
20:14<FLHerne>avdg: 'Night
20:14<FLHerne>Yeah, the actual interface to the PF from outside is really simple :-)

20:20<Vadtec>will the RaspberryPi run a dedicated server decently for say 1-3 players?
20:23<Vadtec>RPi model B btw
20:24<avdg>FLHerne: hmm, just a quick though (and then I'm really going to sleep)
20:24<avdg>you better study the datastructures instead of the code ;-)
20:25<avdg>vadtec: there are a lot of other factors like the size of the maps
20:25<avdg>and how busy the map is
20:25<avdg>hard to say I guess
20:25<avdg>only way is to try it out
20:26<avdg>anyway, now I'm really going to sleep
20:26<Vadtec>avdg: kk, was just wonderin
