06:20<@planetmaker>hi ho
06:27<Wolf01>the best part to have dual monitors and working on 2 pc at the same time is that when you figure out you must use the other mouse to click on the other screen, and the same is valid for the keyboard
06:46-!-Flygon_ is now known as Flygon
06:46<Flygon>Wolf01: Amatuer :3
06:46<Flygon>Real men use three keyboards, three mice, three monitors, three computers :3
06:47-!-Progman [~progman@p57A1A860.dip0.t-ipconnect.de] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
06:47<@planetmaker>Wolf01, it helps to have a flip switch and use one mouse/keyboard :)
06:48<Wolf01>I usually use one of them and work on remote desktop and 4-5 ssh terminals, but this time I didn't want to connect the ethernet cable
06:48<Flygon>Insane/sad part is
06:48<Flygon>I have a fourth computer also in active commission
06:48<Flygon>But I actually lack the spare keyboard and mouse
06:48<argoneus>ayy
06:49<Flygon>And my desk only has room for two monitors
06:49<Flygon>So I have three desks @_@
06:49<Wolf01>quick, give me a free IP address
06:49<Flygon>192.168.1.1
06:49<Wolf01>it might not work :P
06:53<Wolf01>ok I think my old pc is clean enough to be used from my family as gaming pc
06:53<@planetmaker>yeah... ssh is the more convenient way indeed :)
06:58<Rubidium>Wolf01: maybe http://synergy-project.org/ helps your "problem"
06:58<@peter1138>I have too many IP addresses to know what to do with :(
06:58<Wolf01>that's interesting
06:59<@peter1138>2^80 is quite a lot, anyway
06:59<Rubidium>sadly enough you need to pay for the prepackaged binaries, but the source code is GPL
07:00<Wolf01>I lost my mouse again
07:00<Rubidium>there's a package in Debian's repository, so I reckon you'd only need to build it yourself for Windows and OS X
07:01<@peter1138>Used to use that years ago. It was free then.
07:02<Rubidium>it still is free (as in speech), just the binaries on the website aren't free (as in beer)
07:02<@peter1138>IIRC it fucks up with games like OpenTTD that do mouse warping.
07:09<NGC3982>I spent like fifteen years on the internet before i realized that IIRC was not IRC written then wrong way.

08:15<@planetmaker>hm.... http://devs.openttd.org/~planetmaker/patches/naturally_bricked.jpg ;)
08:16<@Alberth>the good ol days before @calc :p
08:17<@planetmaker>yeah, got that evolution in one image, too: http://devs.openttd.org/~planetmaker/patches/tablet_evolution.jpg ;)
08:17<@Alberth>:)
08:20<NGC3982>That's nice.
08:22<@planetmaker>it's always good to go through the year's photos at least once :)
08:23<@planetmaker>I totally forgot about this one already
08:24<@Alberth>anything you cannot remember can be deleted? :)
08:26<@planetmaker>:D
08:27<@planetmaker>I delete those which are not in-focus (mostly)
08:27<@planetmaker>I mark a fraction of the remaining with a positive rating so as to not look at all again ;)
08:27<@planetmaker>disk space is cheap, I guess
08:28<@planetmaker>but I wasn't always consequential when doing the rating
08:28<@planetmaker>and it's good to look at photos with some distance from the actual time they were taken. It enhances - at least my - judgement of their quality
08:29*NGC3982 has a big part of his office wall in chalk board
08:29<@Alberth>fresh look never hurts indeed :)
08:29<NGC3982>I like it. It works better, for some reason.
08:29<NGC3982>I don't really know why.
08:29<@planetmaker>yup, always good to have a chalk board in the office
08:29<@Alberth>/me prefers a white board
08:29<@planetmaker>I like it, too
08:29<@planetmaker>not that dusty, Alberth ?
08:30<@Alberth>easier to partly wipe :)
08:30<@planetmaker>hm, really? How so?
08:30<@Alberth>wiper sticks to the board :p
08:30<@planetmaker>:D Magnetic is nice, yes. But... can be done with chalk boards, too
08:31<@planetmaker>though I've never seen a magnetic wiper for one of those indeed
08:31<NGC3982>The white board might be the best combination
08:34<@Alberth>chalk board is better for long term storage, white board aren't designed to keep the writing for a long time on the board
08:35<NGC3982>I guess long term storage (at home) of wall writing seems a bit counterintuitive
08:35<NGC3982>I guess most people use chalk- or white boards for temporary brain RAM.
08:35<NGC3982>At least i do.
08:35<b_jonas>yes, or paper and pencil
08:36<NGC3982>It's actually quite amazing how more efficient our brains can be simply by writing or painting at the same time.
08:36<@Alberth>nah, papers get lost in the other paper stacks :)
08:37<@Alberth>NGC3982: you can remember only 7 things at the same time, which implies most things you make won't fit :p
08:39<@planetmaker>ha, Alberth, indeed: papers get lost in the HUGE stack of papers :)
08:39<@planetmaker>I constantly seem to have that issue :(
08:39<@Alberth>they should invent unstackable paper :D
08:41<NGC3982>Alberth: Yes, but you can remember the order of much, much more.
08:41<NGC3982>That's why writing is so efficient.

12:29<andythenorth>you had a lot of money in the save I saw o_O

14:04<andythenorth>so does this river generator work then?
14:04<andythenorth>anyone compiled it?
14:05<Rubidium>it's huge and quite slow
14:06<@planetmaker>moderate slowness for map generation is not a huge issue, though, is it?
14:06<Rubidium>didn't produce really nice situations (possibly better than mine though), but there are so many knobs to turn...
14:06<andythenorth>the screenshots look awesome
14:06<andythenorth>but eh, I didn’t have time or inclination to compile it yet
14:06<Rubidium>planetmaker: 512x512 generation seemingly hanging isn't nice (i.e. no progress being shown)
14:07<Rubidium>or at least for a part of it
14:07<Rubidium>and it seemed to terraform a huge amount
14:07<Rubidium>like the old AI was rampaging the map
14:07<@planetmaker>that seems to be part of the point :)
14:08<@planetmaker>honestly, with heights > 16 the current TGP creates insane landscapes when looking at hills. It's all slopes
14:08<andythenorth>+1
14:09<andythenorth>what happened to peter1138’s heightmap generator?
14:09<andythenorth>that had good results
14:09<Rubidium>planetmaker: well... I had a mountain with reasonably flat top, the rainfall algorithm made it a mountain ridge
14:09<Rubidium>i.e. I would be unable to build on top of that mountain
14:10<Rubidium>anyhow, it's about 700kB of patches
14:10<@planetmaker>mountains with flat tops are... very rare anyway :)
14:11<andythenorth>+1
14:12<Rubidium>not for older mountain ranges
14:13<Rubidium>e.g. Appalachian Mountains
14:14<Rubidium>in any case... rainfall generally flattens the tops of mountains
14:15<andythenorth>or explosives

14:26<V453000>mooor
14:27<@Alberth>wouldn't eye-candy tiles be nicer? stockpile graphics enough, isn't it?
14:28<@Alberth>ie why waste station tiles for buildings?
14:29<andythenorth>basically I found a building I drew for opengfx and was going to put that in
14:29<andythenorth>and maybe an ice house, and some storage silos
14:29<andythenorth>I could do cargo tiles, but I’ve covered most things afaik
14:29<andythenorth>also the tiles that display cargo are horrible
14:33<@Alberth>narrow gauge looks off-center with chips, but maybe that has a different reason
14:36<andythenorth>because newgrf stations
14:37<andythenorth>I can’t remember why, but it’s unfixable
14:39<andythenorth>this is quite a big oops http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-30464816

14:43<andythenorth>they’re celebrating
14:43<andythenorth>how nice :)
14:43*andythenorth needs to assemble an nml string with arbitrary number of substrings
14:43<andythenorth>using python
14:43<andythenorth>can’t be hard, right?
14:44<frosch123>too abstract
14:45<andythenorth>well
14:45<andythenorth>actually it’s “[prefix] name [suffix]"
14:45<andythenorth>where prefix and suffix are optional, but name is not
14:46<andythenorth>and I have one function that handles rendering out the required string
14:46<LordAro>sounds like a python oneliner
14:46<andythenorth>sounds like a recursive function
14:46<frosch123>nml can concat strings already
14:46<andythenorth>concat, or substr?
14:47<frosch123>concat, substr makes no sense with translations
14:47*andythenorth could start by reading the docs, or the existing places where I’ve done this :P
14:47<frosch123>i mean composition during compile time, not run time
14:47<frosch123>ask eddi, cets does it
14:48<andythenorth>yeah, eddit gave me his code
14:48<andythenorth>eddi *
14:48<andythenorth>it was a recursive function iirc
14:49*andythenorth is thinking out loud to see if there’s a simpler way
14:50<@Alberth>make a list of sub-strings in the right order, and join them?
14:51<andythenorth>yeah
14:52<andythenorth>I think my interface for defining names in python sucks though
14:52<andythenorth>seems clunky
14:52<andythenorth>maybe this can wait
14:55<andythenorth>ha, I could be really ugly, and do name = “{prefix} name [suffix]"
14:55<andythenorth>and just copy my split(“[“) code, and switch it to “{“
14:55<andythenorth>I know there are better ways, but it would be easy to do :P
14:58<frosch123>if you let nml do the composition, then translators can translate the parts separately
14:58<frosch123>hmm, or do you also compose translated strings?
14:58<andythenorth>no
14:58<andythenorth>I let nml do it
14:58<andythenorth>e.g. this is the current way suffix is applied
14:58<andythenorth>STR_NAME_${consist.id} :${consist.get_name_substr()}{STRING}
14:59<andythenorth>that’s generated into a lang file, and the STRING representing suffix is composed by nml
14:59<andythenorth>all I need to do is insert prefix equivalently
15:00<andythenorth>I’ll just do that, and forget about arbitrary number of substrings, I don’t think it’s a real case
15:00<andythenorth>done > perfect

15:32<andythenorth>eh? The prefix is always related to railtype, so why am I pissing about splitting strings in python to find that?
15:32*andythenorth sees the light
15:35<@planetmaker><frosch123> if you let nml do the composition, then translators can translate the parts separately <-- I'm not sure that it's true
15:36<@planetmaker>Translation is not merely concatenating translated parts. Often order needs to be different to be a viable translation. I would think it's an approach to fail
15:36<@planetmaker>^ andythenorth
15:36<andythenorth>yeah, I wondered about that
15:36<andythenorth>the alternative is to not use substrings
15:37<andythenorth>which makes the names seem very inelegant
15:37<@planetmaker>It depends a bit on the use case(s)
15:37<andythenorth>two cases
15:37<andythenorth>let’s say engine name is ‘Wookey’ and it’s steam
15:37<andythenorth>so “Wookey (Steam)” is string + substring
15:38<@planetmaker>that would work for translations, too
15:38<andythenorth>similarly “Narrow Gauge Box Car” is ‘{STRING} Box Car'
15:39<@planetmaker>That would not work
15:39<andythenorth>for known fact?
15:39<andythenorth>because I could just write out “Narrow Gauge Box Car” long hand
15:39<@planetmaker>I'm not sure I'd retain that order of attributes, yes
15:39<andythenorth>it doesn’t bother me, but it at minimum doubles the number of translations
15:39<frosch123>it works, if you do "[Narrow Gauge] Box Car"
15:39<@planetmaker>Kastenwagen für Schmalspur; Schmalspur-Kastenwagen
15:40<frosch123>i.e. do not try to make it a valid sentence/term, but make it two separate things
15:40<@planetmaker>yes. But it's pointless. It's a track property. It needs actually no translation. The track type is clear by where it appears actually
15:40<frosch123>though i have no idea why you would put the rail type into the name
15:40<@planetmaker>^^
15:40<andythenorth>me neither
15:40<frosch123>isn't that what the depot tells you
15:40<@planetmaker>quite right
15:40<andythenorth>it seemed the right thing at the time, but I’m not sure it’s needed

15:45<__ln__>21:58 < frosch123> if you let nml do the composition, then translators can translate the parts separately <-- i don't know what you're talking about, but sounds like a certain failure if concatenation is done in smaller than sentence scale.

16:32<Eddi|zuHause>probably
16:42<@planetmaker>frosch123, we certainly could add some non-sync graphics-only things
16:42<@planetmaker>would probably be a bit hacky, though :)
16:44<@planetmaker>like 2nd animation properties which cannot be queried or a set of sprites which are just cycled or whatever
16:45<@planetmaker>honestly for most stuff, a non-queryable animation would totally suffice
16:45<frosch123>as long as trains can modify running cost when on snow, we won't make any progress there :p
16:52<andythenorth>some of these heqs sprites are bloody awful
16:53<frosch123>planetmaker: another issue we have is, that we have no separate sprite layouts for different zoom levels
16:53<frosch123>we cannot reduce detail when zoomed out
16:53<frosch123>we still draw separate ground, foundations, building, snow, ...
16:56*andythenorth hacks a bit
16:59<andythenorth>well
16:59<andythenorth>I have 1cc wagons with 2cc loads
17:00<andythenorth>and then I have compile-time repaint that flips the cc
17:00<andythenorth>so there are blue wagons with green tractors
17:00<andythenorth>and green tractors with blue wagons
17:00<andythenorth>how curious
17:01<andythenorth>https://dev.openttdcoop.org/attachments/download/6967/horse_supplies.png
17:01<andythenorth>too weird? Or don’t care?
17:02<frosch123>usually i would not expect cargo to use company colours
17:03<frosch123>unless you only deliver to yourself :p
17:03<frosch123>pink tractors and such are weird
17:03<@planetmaker>frosch123, not sure different sprite layouts for different zoom levels would make too much sense (except maybe for larger zoom-out than 1x)
17:04<Eddi|zuHause>use random colour instead of 2nd cc for the cargo
17:04<frosch123>i would not flip the graphics, but add a recolour callback, which picks 1st or 2nd colour randomly for wagon, and a completely random colour for the cargo
17:05<frosch123>planetmaker: well, a saner strategy would be the zoom-out-into-smallmap patch
17:05<andythenorth>so what, yellow tractors? o_O
17:05<andythenorth>meh
17:05<andythenorth>now I have to pick colours :)
17:05<frosch123>andythenorth: use one sprite 1st cc for wagon, 2nd cc for cargo
17:05<Eddi|zuHause>you don't pick, that's what the random is for
17:05<frosch123>but use the callback to actually not use the company colours for them
17:05<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: silly, you have to specify at least ranges
17:05<andythenorth>can’t just random replace from the palette
17:06<andythenorth>:)
17:06<Eddi|zuHause>random out of the 16 company colours
17:06<Wolf01>yellow, green, black with red stripes, white with red stripes
17:06<andythenorth>do we have a recolour callback now?
17:06<andythenorth>did I miss something?
17:06<frosch123>it's ancient
17:06<Eddi|zuHause>recolour callback is there for ages

17:08<@planetmaker>ogfx+trains make use of it for containers
17:09<andythenorth>oh the recolour masks one?
17:09<@planetmaker>no masks
17:09<andythenorth>don’t I have to generate 65536 recolor tables for that?

17:11<dreck>hi
17:11<andythenorth>selected at build time
17:11<frosch123>andythenorth: you make the sprite 1cc only, but then tell ottd to either use the first or second company colour for the 1cc colours
17:11<andythenorth>yeah
17:11<Eddi|zuHause>yes, so based on one random bit, you return the 1st or 2nd cc for the 1st cc
17:11<Eddi|zuHause>and based on some other random bits, you return a random colour as 2nd cc
17:12<andythenorth>interesting
17:12<andythenorth>why isn’t this standard?
17:12<frosch123>colour_map: return base_sprite_2cc + (randombit1 ? company_colour1 : company_colour2) + 16 * randomrange(16)
17:12<Eddi|zuHause>those other random bits you make with a "randomize on empty" trigger
17:12<andythenorth>does everybody else do this?

17:13<andythenorth>and this is what people use for recolouring cargos as well?
17:13<frosch123>it also picks different colour depending on position
17:13<Eddi|zuHause>note that the trigger cannot be in the callback, but must be in either the default callback or the random triggers callback
17:14<frosch123>andythenorth: not many cargos are suitable for recolouring, but as pm says: ogfx+trains does it for containers
17:14<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: yes, with additional stuff to have 2cc and cargo colour
17:14<Eddi|zuHause>GermanRV was the first one i've seen that did that
