03:05<@peter1138>What does that even mean?
03:17<andythenorth>whatever it is, I wouldn’t get too close
03:17<andythenorth>these might be handy
03:32<V453000>peter1138: that my template wasnt ready for the | 140% stretching XD
03:35<supermop>with 10 months to go on alcohol valley, building rough airfields high in the mountains at coffee plantations
03:36<andythenorth>a lot more fun
03:36<andythenorth>than making model train sets
03:36<supermop>just to collect the discarded outer husks of coffee cherries and ferment them into an undoubtedly vile drink
03:36<andythenorth>that is an offensive position
03:37<andythenorth>I would have to kban you if I had the power
03:37<andythenorth>coffee = life
03:37<supermop>it is
03:37<supermop>but i cant make alcohol from the coffee itself
03:37<supermop>but the plantations produce fruit
03:38<V453000>am adding your fucking JAVA to all wagon sprites andythenorth
03:38<V453000>you remain silent. :D
03:38<supermop>which i am guessing is the outer part of the coffee cherry that is usually discarded at the washing station
03:40<supermop>unless you posit some other source of fruit coming from these coffee farms
03:40<andythenorth>oh they grow fruit under the coffee bushes
03:41-!-pxr [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
03:42<andythenorth>or vice versa
03:42<andythenorth>coffee traditionally shade-grown; the shade comes from fruit trees, bananas etc
03:43<andythenorth>realisms to the max
03:43<andythenorth>even animated rivets
03:44<supermop>rough airfield in the mountains realistic
03:44<supermop>serving it with 737s maybe not as much
03:44<andythenorth>hope you’re using AV9 :P
03:45<andythenorth>improved version
03:45<andythenorth>much less stuff
03:46*andythenorth bbl
03:46-!-andythenorth [] has left #openttd []

03:50<@planetmaker>hm, vice versa :P
04:00<supermop>ooops just built cable stayed bridge with tower in the approach to a runway

04:21<V453000>Creating NewGRFs 101
04:22<V453000>202 will be about fixing your old and scary HAX
04:22<V453000>complete guide to newgrfs
04:24<V453000>though at the same time there might actually not be a more sophisticated solution :d
04:26<V453000>the problem was that when rotating, the stretching made the | view too low inthe 128x128 sprite, so it overlapped to the neighbouring sprite ... but logically if it rotates around its center, only other solution would be to move the cutting mask - which would be dirty and not really work since it is rotation inconsistent
04:26<V453000>so I just moved the model at one rotation XD
04:27<V453000>the comments are even better than the picture peter1138 :D

05:01<@peter1138>Hmm, new MagSafe power adapters are kinda expensive :S
05:03<V453000>hy pm :)
05:04<@Alberth>tried the MagUnsafe ones ?
05:05<argoneus>what about the MagVolatile

05:06<@planetmaker>peter1138, did bug andy for one of his ancient machines or got one yourself as new gadget?
05:06<@peter1138>Yeah, it's the ancient one.
05:07<@planetmaker>so... can we expect OSX fixes now? :D
05:07<@peter1138>Nope, cos it didn't come with a working version of OSX
05:07<@peter1138>Still waiting on that :D
05:08<@peter1138>In the meantime, Wheezy runs nicely on it. But I just noticed the power adapter is only 45W, not 60W as it should be.

05:19<supermop>failed to get gold
05:20<argoneus>supermop: gold where?
05:20<supermop>silicon valley gamescript
05:21<@planetmaker>not always easy. Though it depends on the parameters you initially set, right?
05:24<V453000>do such scripts work with e.g. yeti?
05:24<V453000>or are bound to a newgrf?
05:25<V453000> /able to choose only some cargoes
05:26<@Alberth>should work afaik
05:27<@Alberth>although yeti may defeat the cargo analysis algorithm of the script :p
05:28<@planetmaker>I would believe SV works with every industry newgrf (or without). It's quite generic
05:29<@planetmaker>It analyses cargo whether they're primary or secondary, I think (coming from extractive/organic industries)
05:29<V453000>I think yeti is 100% extractive, worker yard might be processing
05:29<@planetmaker>farms should be pretty organic, no?
05:30<V453000>certainly no black holes, extractive or organic
05:30<argoneus>is yeti environment friendly
05:30<V453000>hm :D
05:31<V453000>yeah all extractive
05:31<V453000>worker yard processing
05:31<V453000>exchange port processing
05:31<@planetmaker>but you're right, no organic
05:32<@planetmaker>V453000, you should consider to give the 'organic' industries that flag (instead of extractive).
05:32<@planetmaker>It has little influence on how the industry works itself. But it makes sense for at least two things:
05:32<@planetmaker>* station names in the vicinity
05:33<@planetmaker>* disasters which can occur there (a mine shaft collapsing due to a mad cow running around?!)
05:33<@planetmaker>* scripts / AI knowledge about what the industries represent
05:33<@planetmaker>at least two :P
05:33<V453000>XD disasters
05:33<@planetmaker>yes, they're linked to that
05:33<V453000>Sylf did some station name hax
05:33<V453000>but hm can consider
05:34<V453000>just afraid of it causing unexpected wtf at unexpected places
05:34<V453000>regardless, determining any thing from organic/not organic sounds like a bad feature if the industry works the same way :P
05:36<V453000>(: aaand my template seems to work again
05:36<V453000>HAX work
05:46<john_maal>Good morning guys, i am new on this and i do not want to disturb, but there is someone who speak spanish or italian
05:47<argoneus>john_maal: I barely speak spanish and I know an italian guy who is on irc right now
05:47<argoneus>what do you need?
05:49<john_maal>i am having little problems to understand the wiki, i am reading it but well i only see a list of problems and tasks, i want to be developer, but
05:49<argoneus>isnt the wiki in english?
05:50<john_maal>it is a little dificult because i can not see tutorials about for example, library used or well i can not see the .cpp files :)
05:50<john_maal>yes yes ofcorse, but my motherlanguage is the spanish :), i speak a little english as you can see... i am not using right now the google translator, but my english is nor very very good so
05:51<argoneus>I don't speak spanish on a developer level :<
05:51<john_maal>jeje there is no problem, i would like to work with you in english, it is fine because i can practice and improve it to the same time i practice my programming in C++
05:53<john_maal>i know the object oriented orpgramming in C++, and i have 3 years practicin in C++, but i am a novice working in serious and big projects like it you do, only personal projects and university works... so i am a little lost about that i can do to begin
05:53<argoneus>(I'm not a developer, I'm probably worse than you)
05:54<john_maal>:) maybe not, because the experience is important, and i have not work experience
05:55<b_jonas>john_maal: yeah, working together in big projects is something you can only learn in practice
05:57<john_maal>yes i understand, but i am a student of informatic in the university, so i am a newbye :/... but i love TTD (from 1998... i was 8 years old in that time :D) and maybe it can be a great oportunity for me to practice
05:58<john_maal>i would like to dirty my hands with codes... maybe i would begin working without GUI codes
06:03<@Alberth>hi hi
06:05<@Alberth>any area you want to be coding in, in particular?
06:06<john_maal>well not really, but maybe for the first time i think to work without GUI, because i guess it can be a little dificult the first time
06:06<@Alberth>what do you mean "without GUI"?
06:06<@Alberth>you mean without IDE ?
06:07<john_maal>do not want to work with Graphyc interface... at least by the moment, because i am only learning
06:07<@Alberth>I have been learning since 2007, and am not done yet :)
06:08<@peter1138>Current GUI is quite complex, but also simpler than the old stuff.
06:09<john_maal>jeje well but i would like to begin for example... changing the capacity size for the vehicles or changing the maximun speed... i guess ca do it only changing values in a source file and it is not very complicated
06:10<john_maal>inly to learn and familiarize with the codes
06:10<@Alberth>ah, wrong department then :)
06:10<@Alberth>you know about NewGRFs ?
06:10<john_maal>i am not sure
06:10<john_maal>maybe not
06:11<@Alberth>NewGRFs have a lot of possibilities, including defining new vehicles, changing old ones, etc
06:11<@Alberth>it can also replace houses, industries, landscape, almost anything
06:11<Eddi|zuHause>NewGRF is sort of a plugin system, which allows to modify parts of the gameplay without modifying the program itself
06:12<@Alberth>in short, NewGRFs are used to set vehicle speed, capacity, etc etc
06:12<john_maal>but it is still graphics work or not?
06:12<@Alberth>it's not coded in the core program, except for the base set vehicles.
06:12<Eddi|zuHause>GRFs don't have to include graphics
06:13<@Alberth>NewGRFs can also have graphics, but not always
06:13<Eddi|zuHause>(even though the name suggests that)
06:13<john_maal>it this right? :
06:14<@Alberth> <-- NML is a compiler to make NewGRFs, browse its manual for a while to get an idea what you can do with it
06:14<john_maal>aaahhh ok i maybe understand, the game have a core and the changes in the game are writed in NewGRF files right?
06:14<@Alberth>yes (I think I understand you)
06:15<john_maal>so the cre do work thoes files
06:15<@Alberth>OpenTTD loads the NewGRFs, and carries out its instructions
06:16<john_maal>jeje yes i did read a similar think with a game called "simutrans" maybe the system is similar
06:17<@Alberth>I don't know what you can do in simutrans, in particular, can you eg add new industries, etc?
06:17<@Alberth>but the idea is quite similar, probably
06:18<john_maal>no no, i mean, i did read in simutrans there is a graphyc package to make work the game, so you must download the core of the game and a graphic package
06:18<@Alberth>ah, we have such a package too, it's called a 'baseset'
06:18<Eddi|zuHause>it probably differs a lot in the details
06:19<john_maal>mmhh but it is not the NewGRFs?
06:19<@Alberth>NewGRFs are much more invasive, they can redefine how parts of the game work
06:19<john_maal>so baseset and NewGRFs is not the same thig?
06:19<john_maal>ok i understand
06:19<Eddi|zuHause>there is the game (program), a base set, and (optional) NewGRFs
06:20<@Alberth>ie OpenGFX or zBase that you downloaded is a baseset, it has the graphics that are standard available
06:21<@Alberth>The OpenTTD program is the engine making it all tick and move
06:21<@Alberth>NewGRFs are extensions, with new vehicles, new industries, new aircraft, etc etc
06:21<@planetmaker>V453000, re industry types: I think the attribution of extractive/organic/processing is pretty un-intrusive. It has a bit influence, namely on how production changes. But only so, if you don#t define your own mechanics anyway. Other than that it only has positive influence on inter-operaability of the NewGRF with vehicles / AI /GS
06:23<@planetmaker><Eddi|zuHause> (even though the name suggests that) <-- no, no, NewGRF = NEW Game Resource File ;)
06:23<@Alberth>:O really? :)
06:23<@Alberth>you learn something new every day :)
06:23<john_maal>so it is not New Graphics Resource File? :P
06:23<@planetmaker>initially surely not. But it makes sense to use this as the acronym's meaning, no?
06:24<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: you can keep your bogus backronyms for yourself.
06:24<@planetmaker>pff! :P
06:24<@planetmaker>I mean... several w/o any single real sprite = graphics there
06:24<@planetmaker>so what's the point of calling them graphics files while they define the behaviour of stuff?
06:24<@Alberth>lots, actually, all those town name grfs :)
06:25<Eddi|zuHause>the point is that there is no point at all.
06:25<@planetmaker>town names, snow line, costs, modification of vehicle stats
06:25<@planetmaker>I could make most of OpenGFX+Industries without a single graphics
06:25<@Alberth>You missed an entire climate :p
06:26<@planetmaker>yes :(
06:26<Eddi|zuHause>the point was, that "GRF" (without any expansion in mind) still *suggests* it has something to do with graphics
06:26<V453000>planetmaker: hm :), so if we define everything by produce_256 cb, making things extractive/organic/processing should not have any downsides
06:26<@planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause, and I dispute that it suggests that
06:26<@planetmaker>V453000, I *believe* that, yes
06:26<V453000>it does pm
06:26<@Alberth>Eddi|zuHause: it makes graphics move? :)
06:27<V453000>GRF = graphipcal, purely intuitively it just does that
06:27<argoneus>when i first tsarted playing
06:27<argoneus>I thought newgrfs were tilesets etc
06:27<argoneus>like for dwarf fortress
06:27<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: maybe you have a different opinion of what "suggest" means...
06:27<@planetmaker>they are that. Among many other things
06:27<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: this is not about what they actually are.
06:27<john_maal>well guys i do not want to disturb more, i'll read the wiki of the NewGRF and and see what can i do and i'll ask again if i have some dificult questione :P... thank you very much by the help you gave to me :)
06:27<@planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause, GFX suggests graphics. GRF only in our community
06:28<@planetmaker>john_maal, do not worry, you sure don't disturb
06:28<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: this is about what a person without any context is likely to think when he reads "GRF" for the first time.
06:28<@planetmaker>I think you're biased there Eddi|zuHause :)
06:28<john_maal>yes i distrub with my shameful english xD...
06:29<@planetmaker>john_maal, I think none of the people you talked to here is a native English speaker
06:29<@Alberth>john_maal: sometimes you have a big discussion going off just like that, it's quite normal :)
06:29<@planetmaker>actually not true. But nearly none
06:29<argoneus>are indians considered native english speakers
06:30<argoneus>if they speak english
06:30<@planetmaker>your English is much better of many English youngsters which come here and assume that everyone understands their l337 sp34k
06:30<argoneus>planetmaker: I haven't seen anyone use 1337 sp33k here before ;o
06:30<@planetmaker>any my grammar sucks
06:30<@planetmaker>argoneus, for good reason.
06:30<@planetmaker>bah... more tea
06:30<@Alberth>john_maal: I think you can express yourself good enough, that's what matters
06:31<john_maal>:) thank you very much
06:31<@Alberth>argoneus: because only 1337 weirdos speak that?
06:31<V453000>666 openttd swag #checkoutmyNewGRFs #yolo
06:33<Jinassi>you forgot to add noscope
06:33<@planetmaker>john_maal, and while you now may have gotten the impression that much can be done outside C/C++ in OpenTTD: yes, that's true, especially for adding new graphics or changing how game contents work, there's a LOT which needs / can be done in OpenTTD core itself
06:34<@planetmaker>Like the things on the wiki page. but also many more things, of course. As said on forums: the wiki todo is only an incomplete list of things which can be done
06:35<@planetmaker>you could for instance also add water depth to the game
06:35<@planetmaker>which then in turn could influence ship speeds (which would change / amend some parts of how NewGRFs can interact with it)
06:36<@planetmaker>or one could try to add a font selection to our settings
06:36<@planetmaker>(there once was a patch. But it needs revisiting. And looking how to get it working on at least linux and windows, better also osx)
06:37<@planetmaker>or have a look at our issue tracker. There surely are some feature requests and especially bugs which want to be treated

06:46<john_maal>sorry, my connection was closse
06:46<Eddi|zuHause><argoneus> are indians considered native english speakers <-- i would define "native" as "the language you were using at home when you were a child"
06:46<@Alberth>john_maal: it happens all the time, nothing to worry about, except you may loose some conversation
06:47<john_maal>but in this moment, in indian the children are learning english like first language, i have some indian firneds here in my university and they say it
06:47<argoneus>Eddi|zuHause: yeah but
06:47<argoneus>they are "native" to america
06:47<Eddi|zuHause>for missed conversations check
06:47<argoneus>it was witty humor :(
06:47<Eddi|zuHause>indians are native to india. duh!
06:48<john_maal>ahh i didn't know it, thank you :)
06:48<argoneus>john_maal: you can also rent a VPS and run irssi on it
06:48<argoneus>it's cheap
06:48<argoneus>I think it's what most people here do?
06:48<argoneus>(at least I do)
06:48<Eddi|zuHause>i doubt that's "most"
06:58<john_maal>from the first time i did reach to build a factory in the game i did ask to myself... why i can not get a profit by this factory? yes i have the transport profit, but not by the production
06:59<argoneus>because technically the factory is not yours
07:00<argoneus>you only helped fund it
07:00<argoneus>I guess
07:00<john_maal>ahh really? but it is too expensive :P
07:01<argoneus>just pretend everything is nationalized
07:02<@peter1138>Hmm, I don't think I ever funded an industry :p
07:03<Eddi|zuHause>i did, but not very often
07:03<john_maal>mmmhhh everythin is nationalized? damn just in my country... dictatorship maybe? xD
07:03<Eddi|zuHause>the game is a bit unclear about this
07:05<john_maal>maybe it would be changed by a patch? maybe a new GRF?
07:05<john_maal>or it is a little more complicated?
07:06<@peter1138>Changed to do what?
07:07<john_maal>maybe to got a profit by the funded industries
07:07<V453000>transport company owning industries
07:07<Eddi|zuHause>economical simulations like that can be done by game script
07:07<Eddi|zuHause>but you have to completely invent the simulation
07:08<john_maal>or maybe create a little new actions system... buy actions and bounds from the industries
07:09<argoneus>i wish someone fixed road vehicles
07:09<argoneus>if the timing is just right
07:09<argoneus>a road vehicle will enter a railroad when a train is coming
07:09<argoneus>and then the vehicle will stop because train = stop
07:09<argoneus>in the middle of the fukkin railroad.
07:10<john_maal>xD suicide driver and conscious machinist :P
07:10<V453000>in many cases it would also help if players started caring about solving the situation by building better instead of having the game fix it for them :P
07:11<argoneus>the only solution is
07:11<argoneus>to never cross railroad with road
07:11<argoneus>so you need a bridge or tunnel for either one
07:11<argoneus>which slows things down
07:11<argoneus>if the traffic is high, then a bridge is better anyway
07:11<argoneus>but with one train once in a while
07:13<Eddi|zuHause>be careful when applying this to an existing savegame. vehicles may start up when they were stopped before, running into the train right ahead of them
07:13<Eddi|zuHause>should otherwise be savegame compatible with trunk (back and forth)
07:15<@peter1138>argoneus, you know about reserved track blocking crossings?
07:15-!-frosch123 [] has joined #openttd
07:19<@planetmaker>argoneus, when you use path signals on the train tracks, vehicles won't enter the track when it's reserved
07:20<argoneus>what about... block signals?
07:20<@peter1138>Block signals don't cause trains to reserve tracks, so no.
07:21-!-Xrufuian [] has quit [Quit: Quit]
07:22<V453000>argoneus clearly didnt get the path VS block signal arguments :P
07:22<V453000>it isnt use ONLY path, or ONLY block signals, best is to use block as main, and path signals where their utility suits the situation
07:24<argoneus>but most people here argue that you should use path everywhere and block for ALU
07:24<V453000>sure, which is limited and wrong
07:25<@planetmaker>yes. And there clearly is only one way to use signals and play and have fun :)
07:26<argoneus>"wow, you are having fun the WRONG way!"
07:26<john_maal>with the locomotives, the power CV is only for sloping ground?
07:28<Eddi|zuHause>we could make level crossings trigger path reserving even with block signals
07:29<@Alberth>john_maal: CV ?
07:30<john_maal>i am not sure the name in english, maybe horsepower... it is the value at the side of the speed
07:30<argoneus>or tractive effort
07:30<Eddi|zuHause>power mostly defines the achievable top speed, and how quickly that can be done
07:30-!-ginko_ is now known as ginko
07:31<V453000>it means how much power your company consumes by constructing them
07:31<V453000>reaching 1M power means you dominate the universe
07:31<Eddi|zuHause>tractive effort defines how quickly a vehicle can get from full stop to a minimum forward speed
07:31<@Alberth>V: easy with NUTS vehicles :)
07:31<john_maal>no no, maybe is not that i mean, i'll check it when i'll arive to my house and i'll ask it again
07:32<Eddi|zuHause>i'm afraid V's humor doesn't translate well :p
07:32<john_maal>i play in spanish, and in spanish it is CV, i'll check it in english :P
07:32<argoneus>V453000: knock knock
07:33<Eddi|zuHause>are knock knock jokes a thing in czech?
07:33<argoneus>yes, if you say them in english
07:34<V453000>whos there motherfucker

07:34<V453000>good stuf

09:05<V453000> =D
09:05<V453000>simple yet nice
09:06<V453000>id say
09:06<V453000>maybe slightly postapocalyptic XD
09:06<V453000>but the scratches and dirty parts make it look good in x1 etc
09:06<V453000>seemingly not empty even with a basic shape
09:07<@planetmaker>V453000, I see there ugly tracks and ground tiles :P
09:07<@Alberth>yeah, it makes it look used
09:07<@planetmaker>(glass is half empty :P )
09:08<V453000>I still think it kind of fits the ttd base set :P even with the amount of pixolz
09:08<V453000> /colours
09:08<V453000>regardless, you know I might make a landscape set at some point :P in fact all I need to do is change a few textures and code the sprite replacements
09:08<@planetmaker>V453000, the offset of the vehicles should be such that they all move 1px up. They're not symmetric wrt tracks
09:09<@planetmaker>besides that I'm just teasing you ;)
09:09<V453000>meknows, I almost made the landscape set, too, but it just is related to so many things like tunnels, roads and whatnot, that I postponed it :P
09:09<V453000>offset point is probably valid :)
09:11<V453000>but since this thing uses two templates (8/8 and 4/8), it should be moderately not-ass to get offsets right later
09:11<V453000>unlike 8bpp NUTS which uses like 20 templates
09:13<@Alberth>time to ditch a few :p
09:13<V453000>not really doable without massive effort
09:13<V453000>would have to re-organize the sprites too in the pngs
09:13<V453000>way too likely to make mistakes
09:13<V453000>without a real gain
09:13<V453000>the 8bpp is probably fine as it is
09:13-!-supermop [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:14<V453000>right, so adding -4 to all yoffsets should just make it 4px higher
09:14<V453000> my logic is extremely strong today
09:16<@Alberth>frightening, adding negative numbers and still make sense of it :)
09:17<V453000>esp if the offsets are values like -83, -102
09:17<@Alberth>you advanced to the master level now
09:18<V453000>not so sure (:
09:18<@Alberth>no worries, there are more level above that :)
09:18<@Alberth>the guru level comes to mind
09:18<V453000>whos that? :D

09:21<V453000>also, stare at my PERFECT offsets with -5 from previous :P
09:22<V453000>might fiddle more later
09:22<V453000>I am ready to lie to myself that it is good for now
09:22<@peter1138>Looks way too tall.
09:23<@peter1138>(Press ^B)
09:23<V453000>is tall an offset? :D
09:23<V453000>I have no fucking idea what are the bounding boxes trying to tell me :P
09:23<V453000>I just align to tracks
09:24<@planetmaker>V453000, looking better aligned, yes
09:24<@peter1138>Align to the bounding boxes (except | or - views)
09:24<V453000>I shit on bounding boxes if it looks bad on tracks XD
09:25-!-jrambo [] has joined #openttd
09:25<@peter1138>That'll look bad in stations, under bridges, through tunnels...
09:25<@peter1138>Needs to be shorter.
09:26<V453000>idk this looks kind of ok everywhere to me
09:27<V453000>will leave it for now (:
09:29<@peter1138>Also if it appears to move when you reverse the train, the offsets are wrong.
09:29<V453000>it doesnt do that because I have them synchronized in that way
09:30<V453000>anyway, I hereby declare weekend :P
09:30<@peter1138>Ok, looking at original vehicles... yours is about twice as tall.

14:11<Wolf01>I just noticed that my cat is blind, maybe not totally, but this morning he couldn't walk in straight line and see the furniture until it was too late
14:12<andythenorth>what parameters does cat.find take?
14:12<andythenorth>and should it be find, and pass in the cat object?
14:12<andythenorth>like hasattr?
14:12<andythenorth>find(cat, **kwargs)
14:13<andythenorth>that would suggest you already have a cat object
14:13<andythenorth>in which case don’t find it
14:13-!-Flygon [] has joined #openttd
14:13<andythenorth>nearby.find(cats, **kwargs)
14:13<andythenorth>returns an iterable
14:15<@Alberth>that's why str.find should not be tested for -1, and you should use "in" instead :)
14:17<andythenorth>but should I look for instances of the Cat class?
14:18<andythenorth>or just look for something implementing ‘purr’?
14:18<@Alberth>in Python, the latter
14:19<@Alberth>or rather, you should know which object does that in advance
14:19<@Alberth>ie, you know what kind of data your routine gets
14:19-!-Flygon__ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
14:20<@Alberth>the idea is that a user is much smarter than your code, so it should not try to second-guess user intentions
14:23<andythenorth>what about a cat?
14:26<argoneus>cats are only good for masochists who have no self respect
14:28<@Alberth>such a well-balanced opinion :p
14:31<argoneus>cats aren't supposed to be domesticated, they still have their feral instincts at times :<
14:31<argoneus>or rather, it's much harder to train a cat than a dog
14:31<argoneus>not impossible
14:32<@Alberth>maybe you should stop trying to see a cat like a dog :)
14:33<argoneus>might as well get a child or a girlfriend
14:33<argoneus>since you can't cuddle a cat unless it wants to, which doesn't seem to be very often from what I hear
14:33<argoneus>and pets are for comforting humans :<
14:35<@Alberth>really depends on the cat and yourself, I have seen cats jumping on your lap every opportunity they get, and cats preferring to sleep on their own. Neither of them will get near you unless they consider you trustworthy though
14:36<Quatroking>yay industry
14:36<argoneus>thing is
14:36<argoneus>cats usually have their own brain
14:36<argoneus>dogs usually reflect their owner's behaviour
14:36<Quatroking>FIRS + ISR is so much fun
14:36<@Alberth>so trying to push a cat into doing something will have the opposite effect
14:36<argoneus>I dunno
14:37<argoneus>I view cats as cute pets that do cute things
14:37<argoneus>and dogs as human companions
14:37<@Alberth>not entirely true, a dog has to be dominated or it will dominate you
14:38<argoneus>heavily depends on the breed
14:38<@Alberth>at least that's what tv shows tell me about dogs with behaviour problems
14:38<argoneus>a pitbull is harder to raise than a golden retriever
14:38<argoneus>then again
14:38<argoneus>take everything I say with a "a friend of mine said that..."
14:38<argoneus>because I'm allergic to everything that has fur :)
14:39<argoneus>but from what I see
14:39<argoneus>my friends that have cats keep getting scratches on their body randomly
14:39<argoneus>and my friends' dogs never bite anyone
14:39<@Alberth>probably fun play
14:40<argoneus>I saw a video
14:40<argoneus>where a girl was playing with her cat
14:40<argoneus>and irritated her somehow
14:40<argoneus>and the cat scratched her eyebulb open
14:40<argoneus>and it started bleeding
14:40<argoneus>scary stuff
14:40<@Alberth>sure, you have to respect a cat
14:41<@Alberth>but that also holds for a dog
14:41<@Alberth>both are still animals with scary powers if they get mad
14:41<@Alberth>or feel threatened
14:41<argoneus>but dogs have a much longer history of being domesticated
14:41<argoneus>so they are inherently easier to train
14:42<argoneus>cats sometimes seem like tiger mind in a tiny body
14:42<@Alberth>you don't train a cat, beyond some basics
14:42<@Alberth>they are clean animals by themselves
14:43<argoneus>you have to walk a dog etc
14:43<argoneus>cat will just do whatever
14:43<@Alberth>they learn fast where the food is, and where to poo
14:43<@Alberth>that's about it, otherwise they find their own way and their favorite spots
