04:36<V453000>Pikka: so my models are stretching at 100% in / \ views, but 140% in both - and | :D
04:36<V453000>that is what fills the sprites properly, lets see how it works out
04:38-!-Quatroking [] has joined #openttd
04:39<Eddi|zuHause>@calc sqrt(2)
04:39<@DorpsGek>Eddi|zuHause: 1.41421356237
04:40<Eddi|zuHause>so 141% would be more accurate
04:44<V453000>hm. :)

05:05<supermop>V453000: so much for solidarity with Pikka to press for non stretched sprites?
05:06<V453000>what do you mean supermop ?
05:07<supermop>i though Pikka intentionally forwent stretching _ and | to encourage an eventual change to a non-stretched handling of those angles?
05:08<Eddi|zuHause>supermop: as if that would ever happen.
05:09<V453000>yes supermop, he did, but it just doesnt look good in the game and seriously considering such a change is silly
05:09<V453000>breaking everything we have till now just cause it isnt "correct" is just a bad idea imo
05:09<V453000>we were discussing things with Pikka earlier, at a point where I did not yet know how will I do my vehicles, now I have it done so was making a report :P
05:11<supermop>V453000: why not just space out the / and \ of every old set to compensate! surely everyone would be fine with their trains sticking out of station blocks and getting stuck

05:13<argoneus>I wonder
05:13<argoneus>is it possible to be hired as a programmer without uni education? (slightly OT)
05:14-!-Jinassi [] has joined #openttd
05:14<supermop>i mean depends a bit on local job market, but its probably easier to do in programming than almost any other industry so long as you are capable of doing the work
05:17<Eddi|zuHause>yes, there are plenty of jobs for "uneducated" programmers, but i highly recommend getting that education.
05:18-!-Guest1196 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:18<argoneus>I'm too dumb for it I feel
05:18<blathijs>supermop: " so long as you are capable of doing the work " <-- In my experience, being competent is certainly not always a requirement either :-p
05:18<Eddi|zuHause>supermop: you can't space out the / and \ view because that breaks station lengths and stuff
05:19<@planetmaker>argoneus, you'll never know if you don't try. Try hard that is
05:19<argoneus>I'm at uni second year now
05:19<supermop>Eddi|zuHause: exactly - surely no one will complain about that!
05:19<argoneus>and things get harder and harder and I can't really keep up
05:19*argoneus shrugs
05:20<Eddi|zuHause>argoneus: well then go a step back and repeat stuff at a slower pace...
05:20<Eddi|zuHause>nobody's going to kill you for taking a year longer...
05:22<argoneus>it feels like I'm wasting everyone's time by taking longer
05:22<argoneus>and even if I do it's not guaranteed I won't fail just before finals
05:22<argoneus>and then I might as well go sweep the streets
05:25<Eddi|zuHause># sweep the streets i used to roam
05:25<Eddi|zuHause>there is never a guarantee of anything
05:27<argoneus>I think that "I failed school" is worse than not going there at all
05:27<argoneus>for employers that is
05:27<Eddi|zuHause>i somehow doubt that
05:27<argoneus>it means you weren't sure what to do and couldn't pursue what you wanted to
05:28<argoneus>if you get a job righta fter HS, it means you know what you want, no?
05:28<Eddi|zuHause>also, it's not a bad thing to not know what you want.
05:28<argoneus>well I want to do this
05:28<argoneus>but it's overwhelming and I lose motivation at every hurdle
05:29<argoneus>because it's way too uncertain
05:29<Eddi|zuHause>if motivation is your trouble, talk to more people.
05:30-!-andythenorth [~Andy@] has joined #openttd
05:33<V453000>my anchor of motivation is making it a hobby
05:33<V453000>creating a project that includes doing that and requiring to learn whatever
05:33<V453000>but talking to people about it helps a ton
05:36<V453000>and if you can, getting education is the best thing you can do
05:36<V453000>note, a person without a school says that
05:40<andythenorth>I’ve hired at least two people who quit or failed CS degress
05:40<andythenorth>degrees *
05:40<argoneus>andythenorth: master or bachelor?
05:40<andythenorth>in both cases they got a bachelor instead
05:40<andythenorth>3 years instead of 4
05:41<argoneus>I'm talking about not even doing bach
05:41<argoneus>undergrads are fine
05:41<andythenorth>I’ve hired more who got 1st or 2:1 and they are generally better at common tasks
05:41<andythenorth>but people who’ve failed or quit sometimes have non-standard approaches, which can sometimes be useful
05:42<andythenorth>often they’re smart, but just didn’t fit to the regulated timetable of a degree
05:42<andythenorth>or the way the work is organised
05:42<andythenorth>not always the case :P
05:43<argoneus>are there any people who work as webdevs, have only high school education, enjoy their life and have enough money?
05:43<V453000>the word
05:43<V453000>it hurts
05:43<argoneus>or is that mostly a stupid dream
05:43<argoneus>that most people imagine
05:43<andythenorth>there are fuck load of people making a living doing WP websites or whatever
05:43<argoneus>not that I'd want to be a webdev
05:44<andythenorth>depending exactly where you are in the world, employment prospects are not as scary in the outside world as it looks from inside school or university
05:44<argoneus>as in
05:44<argoneus>it's not hard to find a local development company?
05:44<andythenorth>maybe in some European countries right now, it’s pretty bad
05:44<andythenorth>but otherwise...
05:44<argoneus>pretty bad as in, overcrowded?
05:45<andythenorth>pretty bad as in maybe 40% youth unemployment
05:45<andythenorth>which is high
05:45<argoneus>I live in the capital city
05:45<argoneus>I wonder if that helps anything
05:46<Eddi|zuHause>well, the larger the city, the more likely you get "IT" jobs
05:46<andythenorth>big cities are much more fun and easier to find work in than if you’re stuck in arse-end of nowhere
05:46<andythenorth>also lower transport costs, easy to find people to share with
05:47<andythenorth>higher quality of life etc
05:47-!-Marshy [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:47<argoneus>so if shit really hits the fan somehow, which I hope it doesn't
05:47<argoneus>there's a chance I could at least be a wordpress shitter before I get things back in order somehow?
05:48<argoneus>even with just highschool education (hope not the case)
05:48<andythenorth>classic entry level jobs in the industry: QA / testing, content entry / content management, social media moderation
05:48<andythenorth>all of which will pay ~minimum wage
05:48<argoneus>I work as QA at Oracle right now part time
05:48<argoneus>will any company care about that?
05:49<andythenorth>QA is a classic route into the industry
05:49<andythenorth>although also lots of people do it
05:49<argoneus>so if I have high school education with 2 years QA at Oracle, it's a plus?
05:49<V453000>argoneus: if you have the stomach for it / enjoy doing it, making webpages is quite easy to make money with
05:49<andythenorth>-ve side, lots of people do it, it’s grunt work
05:49<Eddi|zuHause>argoneus: if anything, companies will care MORE about the jobs you did on the side
05:49<andythenorth>+ve side, gives you exposure to the stuff that goes wrong in software
05:49<andythenorth>and how many devs just dump stuff over the fence to QA
05:50<V453000>everybody needs a website
05:50<argoneus>so even if this ends up failing somehow
05:50<argoneus>then "I was a QA at a big company for 2 years and attended uni for 2 years" is a valid argument for a decent job?
05:50<andythenorth>it’s not awful
05:50<V453000>everything you did is a good argument
05:51<argoneus>"I made a 8 track station without jams"
05:51<V453000>ps I would not take uni as fail/win but as "learn amount of shit"
05:51<V453000>not y/n
05:51<argoneus>V453000: question, if you don't mind
05:51<V453000>obviously it comes down to if you have the paper or not, but they will fire you anyway if you cant do anything but have a paper :)
05:51<argoneus>how hard fast it for you to come your current job and do you like it
05:52<argoneus>what did I just write
05:52<Eddi|zuHause>there certainly is a gap in "attended university" or "finished university", but it's usually not a "we won't hire you" gap, more like a "we pay you x% less" gap
05:52<argoneus>hm, you're right Eddi|zuHause
05:52<argoneus>the difference between "I have a bachelor" and "I studied for 3 years and then failed" is that "I didn't study enough for the final exam"
05:52<V453000>it was not easy but I dont get much money right now, the job is okay, mainly I do what I want to do, and I hope that eventually I will learn enough to apply for a job elsewhere/find a job elsewhere
05:53<V453000>before that I was doing 2 years of various smaller jobs like smaller 2D graphics jobs here and there, some website horseshit, ...
05:53<Eddi|zuHause>argoneus: i don't think that's the way HR people actually think
05:53<argoneus>V453000: can you disclose your wage at least the order of magnitude?
05:53<argoneus>Eddi|zuHause: I don't understand how HR people think :<
05:54<V453000>way lower than you would expect a 3D artist to have. :)
05:54<argoneus>is it sub 20k?
05:54<V453000>around it
05:55-!-JacobD88 [] has joined #openttd
05:55<argoneus>my friend got his bachelor in theoretical informatics
05:55<argoneus>and had 35k in his first entry job
05:55<argoneus>never did anything before
05:55<V453000>depends from company to company, in Prague you definitely get a lot more for IT/graphics/... jobs than elsewhere
05:56-!-andythenorth [~Andy@] has left #openttd []
05:56<argoneus>V453000: so if you were in prague, you'd have better opportunities? ;c
05:56<V453000>like totally different
05:57<V453000>here are about 2 companies which hire 3D artists
05:57<V453000>in prague there are a lot more
05:57<argoneus>the more competition, the more pay, right
05:57<V453000>not just that but also more chance to get an actual job

06:13<@peter1138>10:13 < argoneus> is it possible to be hired as a programmer without uni education? (slightly OT)
06:13<@peter1138>< yes :S

06:18<supermop>argoneus: i take it you have an EU passport and you seem to have good english skills
06:18<supermop>with a bit of experience and an open mind you can probably find work anywhere on the continent
06:19<supermop>that said, dont just move somewhere $$$ like London with no job offer
06:20<supermop>but as others have said, sometimes a vareity of experience will make you stand out better to the person hiring than just a BA or BS diploma
06:21<@peter1138>Most job adverts state a requirement for a degree, though.
06:21<supermop>also here in australia i am working for a start up doing graphic work - my bosses are the two founders and they do all of the programming work: one dropped out of a CS degree years ago, and the other never went to University
06:22<supermop>peter1138: argoneus: job adverts are maybe the worst way to get a job if you are just starting out or in an unconventional situation
06:23<supermop>often the advertiser gets so many responses that they will use all criteria to filter people out, even if it means discarding good applicants
06:23<supermop>because they cannot interview hundreds of people
06:26<supermop>i would agree with Eddi|zuHause though, as long as you are not accruing major debt to go to school, I would stay in school even if it means going more slowly
06:28<supermop>it certainly will impact your total salary, and some of the other tangential stuff you learn might end up improving your quality of life for years to come in other ways
06:28<supermop>some of the most important stuff to learn in undergrad is not taught in lectures...

06:42<@peter1138>Eddi|zuHause, you seem to have upset aberro...
06:42<@Rubidium>I reckon getting hired without a CS education as a programmer without any provable history in software development is quite improbable
06:43<@Rubidium>those that never make it to university or drop out of university but end up working in software development are either starting their own business, or have some sort of provable history in software development (e.g. open source work)
06:43<Jinassi>Couldn't work in opensource software prove as a healthy addition to the portfolio?
06:45-!-Guest1205 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:45<@Rubidium>on the other hand, having lots of experience in open source software development and having just received your masters can be a tricky situation to get a job because you either have too much experience or too little experience for many of the potential employers

06:49<V453000>peter1138: I am rendering vehicles, yes? :D

06:50<@DorpsGek>Commit by peter1138 :: r27060 trunk/src/newgrf_engine.cpp (2014-11-11 11:50:04 UTC)
06:50<@DorpsGek>-Doc: Remove obsolete comment (64KB LUT would be 8GB with current limits)
06:50<@peter1138>V453000, no, it means that scaling 140% in some views is hardly a permanent issue.
06:55<V453000>I dont understand what do you mean :d
06:55<@peter1138>Evidently not.
06:56<@peter1138>Recall your conversation from 2½ hours ago, when some concern was expressed regarding shorter or longer sprites.
07:01<V453000>and you sez the 140% is not permanent
07:01<V453000>what do you mean by that
07:01<V453000>that changing everything to make it all "correct" is not out of bounds of reality?
07:01<@peter1138>I assume you can just change that 140% scaling...
07:02<@peter1138>Unlike with sprites where everything would have to be redrawn.
07:02<@peter1138>Er, "sprites" I mean, hand drawn pixel art.
07:03<@peter1138>Hate shiny black plastic... one single touch and it becomes a magnet of smeary fingerprints :(

09:25<argoneus>so basically Eddi|zuHause & supermop: since I got to go to an uni, I should stay for as long as I can unless they kick me?
09:26<V453000>I think the main idea was trying not to :P but yes
09:31<V453000>interesting :D [WTF] found the issue probable
09:34<V453000>hm, the wagons add about 4MB to the grfsize
09:34<V453000>one set of hopper wagons that is
09:35<@peter1138>V453000, no, I mean the fact that there is zero spacing between the wagons.
09:35<Eddi|zuHause>that is bigger than the entirety of TT
09:35<V453000>peter1138: those wagons are a bit specific, maglev ones do that yeah
09:35<V453000>some rail wagons will have gaps
09:36<V453000>... done in the model, perhaps touching by the bumper thingies trains haz
09:36<V453000>this is precisely 0.25 tile long x wide model box
09:36<V453000>useful to make boxes first to get the scale right
09:37<V453000>hm, nice
09:38<V453000>I made 100,8% x 100% scaling of the render to make it fit better, and actually 100,8% x 100,8% fits better XD even though it totally doesnt fit the pattern made of tiles
09:38<V453000>-> camera closer and a bit of fiddling, and done
09:43<@peter1138>Sounds imprecise.
09:44<Quatroking>what's a good 4-way junction?
09:44<Quatroking>I've been using a lot of clover junctions but they're slow
09:44<V453000>it is very imprecise peter1138 :D
09:45<V453000>at the moment I have a result which is not really noticeable by eye without brutal zooming
09:45<Jinassi>Define slow? i can make an example for you, a bit differently made, but trains have 3 paths to choose for 1 destination
09:45<Quatroking>Jinassi, too much sharp corners
09:46<@peter1138>I'd just do a flat crossing with (path) signals in appropriate places.
09:46<Jinassi>kk, i'll go and make an example and post a screenshot then, path signals are used too
09:46<@peter1138>And then when I see that some route is busier, or blocking, find a way to route that difference to avoid congestion.
09:47-!-Celestar [] has left #openttd []
09:47<Jinassi>Quatroking: how long are your trains?
09:47<Quatroking>longest train is 6 tiles, majority is 5
09:48<Quatroking>for T-junctions I use
09:48<Quatroking>can't figure out how to make that a crossing though
09:49<V453000>you just build it? XD
10:04<@peter1138>V453000, make it 2x 8bpp :p
10:05<NGC3982>Taede: I still have not solved the issue with the Soap plugin not being able to send IRC data to the server. Server data flows nicely to the IRC channel, but not on the other way around. What are your suggestions on how to continue? I cannot seem to find any documentation or command regarding enabling/disabling the feature.
10:05<V453000>thank you very much, NO :-D
10:07<NGC3982>This bug seems to be able to affect it, but as we established last time i do have an enabled command character.

11:14<V453000>it isnt that far from truth :P
11:14<frosch123>26 minutes, it only properly utilises two cores yet
11:15<V453000>fuck yeah
11:15<V453000>it only used 1 cpu on the devzone till now, now it will wreck multiple cpus XD
11:15<frosch123>well, i guess pm would disable the threading anyway :p
11:16<frosch123>it's more some kind of experiment, not really for devzone
11:20<Sylf>aha! green jell-o uranium

11:28<@planetmaker>indeed I would / have disabled threading on DevZone. Each builder only has one core available
11:28<frosch123> <- haha, as expected :) it only properly works for yeti sized sprites
11:28<@planetmaker>For security reasons :)
11:29<frosch123>vehicle grfs have too small sprites, so encoding is too fine-granular
11:29<frosch123>otoh, we need more 32bpp zi4 vehicles sets :p
11:29<@planetmaker>nice work, frosch123 :)
11:30<@planetmaker>and I'm optimistic that the demand for grf compilers capable of handling 4x sprites will increase :)

12:04<Marshy>Is 'Cargodist' a norm for most players now, or is there still a large group that use the standard cargo distribution?
12:04<Marshy>Sorry, only picked up OTTD again after a few years away a couple weeks ago, learning about the new features
12:04<frosch123>i think there is a large group where it makes no difference :p
12:05<frosch123>cdist only makes a difference if your network allows cargo to have multiple destinations
12:05<Marshy>So it wouldn't allow for a specific destination unless there was a route through the network to that destination?
12:05<frosch123>unless people change their playstyle, you will only find that in passenger networks
12:07<Marshy>In most cases only one end cargo destination is usually used on a network, eg factory sawmill etc, so cargodist is more effective for passenger networks?
12:07<Marshy>Or goods
12:07<Sylf>I search the multiplayer server list for cargodist, and I only see 8 hits. 2 private servers, 2 patched servers, so only 4 readily available servers.
12:08<@planetmaker>Sylf, most won't explicitly list it in the name
12:08<Sylf>no, but I think it's an indication
12:08<@planetmaker>for much cargodist or for little :)
12:08<Sylf>seeing how many servers like to list their settings in the server name itself
12:08<frosch123>good point, for someone to use cdist, they would have to find it in the settings :p
12:09<Marshy>Took me a few goes :P
12:09<frosch123>so, in any case, it requires an active decision for the player to use cdist
12:09<Marshy>It was like delving into a long dark cave of settings
12:09<frosch123>that will by default exclude the majority :p
12:10<Sylf>I tried cargo dist with firs supply, and decided it frustrated me more than being fun after just 30 minutes :P
12:11<Marshy>I tend not to play multiplayer, but was just trying to decide whether it would benefit or not, it would be interesting for passenger / mail and goods maybe, as you could fill in the 'missing' connections in a network
12:11<Marshy>But meh, I've been playing standard industry change and cargo dist since reinstalling and works fine for me, just need to have a go with FIRS or ECS next
12:12<Marshy>Very good idea though, adds a new dynamic to the game
12:13<Sylf>When FIRS says they need X amount per Y days, and then cargodist decides on its own how much goes to where, and when they don't jive...
12:13<Sylf>That's when I started pulling little hair I have left
12:13<Marshy>More effort than required
12:13<Marshy>Save your hair

13:32<Eddi|zuHause>FLHerne: problem is the only way to get the settings is to download the savegame
13:32<Eddi|zuHause>which is really the same thing as joining
13:32<FLHerne>Eddi|zuHause: Couldn't the server send a packet with (just) them on request?
13:33<@planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause, it doesn't mean there couldn't be a packet which only sends the settings instead of the whole map
13:33<@planetmaker>FLHerne, but you would need to implement that :P
13:33<@planetmaker>(aka patches welcome)
13:34<Eddi|zuHause>ok, fine, lets assume someone implemented that. next someone requests a filter "all servers with cargodist enabled"
13:34<Eddi|zuHause>which can't be done because all servers would have to be queried first
13:34<@planetmaker>well, they would. so?
13:35<@planetmaker>alternatively the master server could be extended to keep that info
13:35<Eddi|zuHause>well, the point of the way querying works right now is that each server sends out exactly one UDP package
13:35<Eddi|zuHause>which fits exactly the version and md5 of the newgrfs
13:35<Eddi|zuHause>anything additional to that would require switching to TCP
13:36<Eddi|zuHause>which will increase load by orders of magnitude
