10:28-!-smurf [~smurf@2001:780:107:0:1278:d2ff:fea3:d4a6] has joined #openttd
10:31<@planetmaker>krinn, wtf funky patch is that you attached to fs#6214
10:32<krinn>no idea, what is funky about it?
10:33<@planetmaker>don't you use any version control?
10:33<@planetmaker>--- script_engine.hpp.old 2015-01-20 14:44:00.000000000 +0100
10:33<@planetmaker>+++ script_engine.hpp 2015-01-20 14:44:08.000000000 +0100
10:34<krinn>ah yes, made it against 1.4.4
10:34<@planetmaker>you made a diff between two files. Not a modified file against its base rev.
10:35<@planetmaker>but nvm
10:37<krinn>at line 110 in trunk
10:45<krinn>planetmaker, while you are at it, i don't think the pre@ != VT_TRAIN on reliability is also good
10:46<krinn>i'm checking the code to confirm (but it looks odd to not be able to get reliability of train engine)
10:48<krinn>planetmaker, reliability @pre are fine, it just to discard wagons reliability
11:00<krinn>is there any chance the IsRiver patch get apply one day?
11:08<Samu>is frosch here?
11:09<Samu>I wasn't clear with the report
11:10-!-frosch123 [] has joined #openttd
11:11<Samu>What you say did match my observations. But when I tried to auto-replace engines, the two trains didn't get replaced the same way
11:12<Samu>that's what I think it is bugged
11:14-!-quorzom [] has joined #openttd
11:14<Samu>I will try this again, must ninja someone's company though
11:14<Samu>then i post a savegame
11:16<krinn>autorenew doesn't upgrade engine
11:17<krinn>autorenew is to replace old engine with the same one
11:18<Samu>that's not what I see happening
11:19<Samu>it works for both
11:19<Samu>the minimum money part at least
11:19<V453000>frosch123: the new nml compiler is awesome =D
11:19<V453000>1. no more memory errors, 2. seeing the progress of Encoding
11:22<V453000>still fuckslow when cache is empty though :P
11:22<frosch123>hola btw
11:22<V453000>hi :)
11:22<frosch123>if i get around to it, i will finish the multicore patch for nml :)
11:22<frosch123>then you can use all your cores :)
11:22<V453000>that would be quite a bomb
11:22<Samu>okay now im setting minimum money to £1,000,000 just to be REAL sure
11:22<V453000>rawr is starting to take long
11:23<V453000>only land/tracks for one climate atm
11:24<V453000>oh and I only got rail so far XD not even mono/mag yet
11:25<V453000>and I want to have at least 4 climates eventually
11:25<V453000>will be wtf long :0
11:25<V453000>wont I run out of memory again? XD
11:25<V453000>got 32gb, guess that is supported?
11:25<V453000>or how does that work now? :)
11:25<frosch123>it now loads only one png at once
11:25<V453000>well I only got 4 pngs :P
11:26<Samu>krinn: it didn't replace to the newer model
11:26<frosch123>so, your biggest png has to stay below your memory limit when uncompressed
11:26<Samu>money limit error
11:26<frosch123>@calc 10*30*4
11:26<@DorpsGek>frosch123: 1200
11:26<frosch123>1.2 GB then
11:26<V453000>cute :)
11:27<V453000>the old NML was running memory errors like a boss already with that
11:27<V453000>anyway, tracks coded =D just need to fix some misalignments
11:28<V453000>-> home
11:28<V453000>o/ :)
11:30<Samu>erm, krinn too
11:31<Samu>autorenew money limit works for autoreplace
11:31<frosch123>does that mean i can close the task?
11:32<Samu>no, there is some issue with it
11:32<Samu>krinn was saying autorenew is separare from autoreplace
11:33<frosch123>the moneylimit setting is the same
11:33<krinn>it is, autorenew is per company settings, this doesn't mean autoreplace is also
11:33<krinn>and autoreplace limit is > autorenew
11:33<frosch123>both are company things
11:33<krinn> -> "The company needs to have more money than (autoreplace money limit) + 2 * (price for new vehicles). "
11:34<krinn>even if "The auto replace money limit is the same limit as the Autorenew minimum needed money configured in Advanced Settings. "
11:35<frosch123>is there "blame" for wiki?
11:35<frosch123>i want to know whether that line was written before 2008
11:36<krinn>that's last info from 1.0
11:36<frosch123>well, it's bollocks
11:36<frosch123>i do not recall it ever being like that
11:36<krinn>i didn't write it :)
11:38<frosch123>oh, it specifically says "ottd 1.0 and newer"?
11:38<frosch123>well, it certainly does not apply for >= 0.6
11:39<frosch123>yeah, someone concatenated info incorrectly
11:40<krinn>i dunno but trusting it mean you need 2* price of new engine in bank + still have the bed money to keep autorenew working
11:40<frosch123>the double limit existed for checking whether a vehicle need servicing
11:41<frosch123>ah, sorry, the wiki is correct
11:41<krinn>it might be to keep autorenew being eaten by autoreplace ; so autoreplace cannot block autorenew
11:41<frosch123>krinn: you are quoting from "servicing" section
11:41<frosch123>that does not trigger the autoreplace limit, it is only a pre-check whether the vehicle should be send to depot at all
11:42<frosch123>the moneylimit is the same for bothj autorenew and replace, once they reach the depot
11:43<Samu>ok, what I observed on yesterday's game which made me create that report was...
11:43<Samu>breakdowns are off on the server, so they never service
11:43<Samu>i instructed to replace the engine to the new one
11:44<Samu>only my created train was replaced asap
11:44<Samu>the other had to wait for my money to build up to £100,000
11:44<Samu>my = company
11:45<frosch123>there are multiple strategies to not send all vehicles to depot at once
11:45<frosch123>so, you may have encountered one of them
11:45<frosch123>there is the increased money requirement, and vehicles can only visit the depot every n days (defined by service interval)
11:45<frosch123>the latter also applies if you have servicing disabled
11:46<frosch123>it's supposed to prevent vehicles going to the depot all the time, if there is only money for a few
11:48<Samu>while waiting for the money, it never really tried to service (no money limit error ever was displayed)
11:49<Samu>i remember checking last service date, it was about 8 years away from current game date
11:49<Samu>train was 7 years old, so that kinda confirms
11:50<Samu>it never serviced
11:50<Samu>but i can try this again, i need someone with different settings than I
11:51<frosch123>start a company, leave the company, change your settings, rejoin
11:51<frosch123>they should switch back on joining
11:51<Samu>but that means only 1 player in the company
11:51<frosch123>you can also make two companies with different settings, and switch between them
11:52<frosch123>the settings are stored on the server. your client only gets them per company
11:54<krinn>you can just also force all trains going to service to not wait, you won't die because some train goes servicing and couldn't be change
11:56-!-TheMask96- [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:57<Samu>this is definitely strange
11:59<Samu>I created my company with my autorenew settings: on, 12 months before, £0
11:59<Samu>now the opposite, someone joins my company
11:59<Samu>I leave
11:59<Samu>company still has got that player on it
11:59<Samu>I rejoin later on, and the settings are different
12:00<Samu>off, 6 months after, £100,000, but he's not in it
12:00<Samu>I doubt he changed them exactly to that
12:01-!-TheMask96 [] has joined #openttd
12:01<Samu>he left somewhere before I rejoined and after I left, am I making sense?
12:04<@peter1138> /win 28

14:11<@DorpsGek>Commit by frosch :: r27123 /trunk/src/script/api (script_engine.hpp script_station.hpp) (2015-01-20 19:11:31 UTC)
14:11<@DorpsGek>-Fix [FS#5371] [FS#6214]: API docs (krinn)
14:13<frosch123>Eddi|zuHause: is fs#6216 the thing you keep on telling about variety distribution on non-rectangular maps?
14:15<Eddi|zuHause>not really
14:15<@Alberth>isn't Eddi talking about streched mountains ?
14:15<Eddi|zuHause>also, variety distribution got tweaked since i last used it
14:17<Eddi|zuHause>yes, i was talking about stretched mountains, which was supposedly fixed by some tiling mechanism. this is something very different
14:18<@Alberth>it looks like the smallest amplitude ended up at water level, filling 1/2 of the wave with water
14:19<Samu>this really irks me, I can't reproduce the issues I had yesterday
14:21<Samu>the engine costs £67,187, the formula is 0+2*67,187
14:22<Samu>£134,374 is when the train(s) will attempt auto-replace, right?
14:23<@Alberth>no, they try every now and then
14:23<@Alberth>they don't monitor money
14:23<V453000>omg Samu the person of endless problems is back
14:23<Eddi|zuHause>they attempt autoreplace every time they go to depot for servicing
14:24-!-andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
14:24<@Alberth>in the general case, you can only find out if you can replace a vehicle by actually attempting
14:24<Eddi|zuHause>just the autoreplace will fail, and they leave again without being replaced, if you don't have enough
14:24<@Alberth>hi hi andy, V
14:25<Samu>alberth, the "now and then" is exactly how?
14:25<Samu>they're not even trying
14:26<@Alberth>depends on your servicing settings
14:26<Eddi|zuHause>if breakdowns are disabled, they never try to autorenew, only autoreplace
14:26<Samu>they're default, 150 days, breakdowns are disabled
14:26<Samu>yes that
14:27<Eddi|zuHause>also, they don't go to depot if the depot is too far away
14:27<@Alberth>have a depot in the orders? then they also don't look for a depot
14:27<Samu>depot is really close to both trains
14:27<Samu>no depot in orders
14:27<Eddi|zuHause>the depot may be "too far away" if the track reservation is very long
14:28<Eddi|zuHause>because once the track is reserved, it cannot be deviated from
14:28<@Alberth>where "very long" can also mean many signals
14:28<Samu>no signals, it's a very simple route, both of them
14:28<Samu>each with 1 depot
14:29<Samu>about 25 tiles distant
14:29<@Alberth>you're replacing to a different model, right?
14:30<Samu>ok, small problem with one of the routes i have, it's not electrified
14:30<Samu>darn, i ruined the test
14:30<andythenorth>where is cat?
14:32<Samu>if I now loan £500,000 will I see both trains auto-replace?
14:32<Samu>hmm, well i'm still gonna wait for £100,000 - it's slowly building up
14:33<@Alberth>save, try, load save game
14:34<Samu>I can't exactly do that for this testing
14:34<Samu>there's 2 players in the company
14:34<Samu>that's the purpose of my testings
14:37<Eddi|zuHause>i guess your whole test is based on a misconception, rather than an actual bug
14:37<NGC3982>!imdb into the woods
14:37<NGC3982>Oh my. Wrong channel.
14:37<V453000>cat says rawr loudly, cant you hear it
14:38<Eddi|zuHause>must be a big cat.
14:38<@Alberth>it just wants food
14:38-!-Ttech [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
14:38<andythenorth>cat needs to do my tax return
14:39<Eddi|zuHause>there was a study that found that cats' purring operates at a frequency that induces bone growth
14:39<@Alberth>not sure you'd get much returned then :)
14:40<NGC3982>Eddi: Fascinating.
14:40<Wolf01>I read that too
14:40<NGC3982>In the world of Bill Bryson: "That evolution thing is remarkable. It can't therefor be true by all scientific means".
14:41*andythenorth has forgotten why evolution isn’t considered a scientifically valid theory
14:41<NGC3982>I just listened trough A short history of nearly everything. Everyone should read it.
14:46<Samu>so far, neither train attempted to service
14:46-!-gelignite [] has quit [Quit:]
14:46<Samu>that's a long enough time for "now and then"
14:47<Samu>still under £100k,but over £70k
14:47<frosch123>maybe your testcase is too complex :)
14:47<Samu>eddi might be right
14:53<Samu>I'm at £100k
14:53-!-naliao [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
14:54<Samu>looks like £134k will be when the trains attempt auto-replace, so there goes the bug
14:54<Samu>there is no bug
14:55<V453000>Samu why dont you just play the game? :D
14:55-!-naliao [] has joined #openttd
14:55<Samu>i was doing something else
14:56<V453000>also, baldys boss is the biggest boss of the day

15:16<krinn>just need to build shittytrain to run on it then
15:17*Eddi|zuHause wonders why that's not already in NUTS
15:19<frosch123>my cellphone has a year 2015 bug
15:19<frosch123>it does accept the year 2015 as valid date, i guess i run it on 2014 then :p
15:21<frosch123>i guess the manufacturer assumed that noone would run the same cellphone for 7 years
15:28-!-Rubidium_ is now known as Rubidium
15:29<Rubidium>sounds like the same manufacturer that used (year % 10) in (0, 4, 8) for leap years
15:30<Samu>Why can't I place signals on bridge headers
15:30<frosch123>should be fine if you bought it in 1987
15:30<Samu>just wondering
15:31<frosch123>er,, 1999
15:31<@Alberth>Samu: bridges don't exist, they are just a visual illusion
15:31<frosch123>i believe there is a patch on the forums for that
15:31-!-naliao [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
15:32<Samu>just the header, not the bridge tile
15:32<Samu>the ramp
15:32<frosch123>signals on bridge heads is still easier than signals on bridge
15:33<Eddi|zuHause>i think the problem with signals on bridge heads was that a train on the bridge ignores a signal on the exit, because it doesn't enter a new tile
15:35<krinn>if you can't build signal on the bridge itself, there no real need for signal on bridge head anyway, a lot of pain to get 1 tile
15:36<Eddi|zuHause>au contraire. a lot is gained by that one tile already
15:36-!-naliao [] has joined #openttd
15:37<krinn>i don't see how
15:37<Eddi|zuHause>like in a city you can make the tunnels longer
15:37<frosch123>i set it to 2009, then the weekday is correct
15:38<Eddi|zuHause>if you can reduce that from 8 tiles to 6, it is a lot
15:38-!-Haube [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
15:40<krinn>Eddi|zuHause, i don't get it, if you can do tunnel-signal-station, you can do bridge-signal-station
15:40<krinn>can we do singal at start of tunnel now?
15:41<Eddi|zuHause>tunnel entrance is the same as bridge head
15:42<Eddi|zuHause>so if you could place on a bridge head, you could also place on a tunnel entrance
15:46<krinn>well, if you do bridge head signal, people will ask looping next, better keep the bridge head signal query for a while (or code openttdcoster soon)
15:46<frosch123>it's called freerct
15:47<@Alberth>/me wakes up
15:47<krinn>but it do like rct not like ttd+rct
15:47-!-kais58 [] has joined #openttd
15:47<frosch123>i guess to increase the hamming distance and avoid confusion
15:47<frosch123>Alberth: your /me is still broken :p
15:48<@Alberth>not here
15:48<Samu>signals on tunnels would be cool too
15:48*krinn thinks alberth /me is broken too
15:49<Samu>how would a road vehicle know that there is another vehicle inside the tunnel?
15:49<@Alberth>but it is in the log
15:50*andythenorth had a broken /me recently too
15:50<andythenorth>dunno what fixed it
15:51<Samu>you managed to make train stations also act as they have a signal in them
15:52<andythenorth>is that a misconception?
15:52<@Alberth>unlikely, broken /me hasn't that much power
15:52<andythenorth>I often think stations have signals in, but they don’t, right?
15:52<@Alberth>they don't indeed
15:52<Samu>I dunno, but they interact fine when I use path signals
15:52<andythenorth>just train won’t try to reserve path until leaving?
15:53<@Alberth>if turning around, yes
15:53<@Alberth>if not turning around, it still has a path
15:53<andythenorth>I always explicitly path signal stations, am I wasting my time?
15:53<andythenorth>1 tile at each exit, with a signal facing the station
15:54<@Alberth>with roro, it makes the reserved path end at the end of the station platform, no waste of time
15:55<@Alberth>with terminus, it's not needed, although there is a difference. If you add a signal, the train will turn, reserve upto the signal, and when arriving at the signal, reserve a path further
15:55<@Alberth>without signal, it first reserves a path before moving at all
15:55<andythenorth>so shorter travel distance
15:55<andythenorth>between blocks
15:55<@Alberth>also, with a signal, it looks prettier :)
15:55<andythenorth>but more space needed per station
15:56<@Alberth>I prefer to have 1 straight track from the platform anyway, so no extra space
15:57<andythenorth>oh I forgot to signal the north-most station :o
15:59<andythenorth>because normal rail and narrow gauge
16:00<V453000>not like the difference is actually well visible XD
16:00<@Alberth>north-most station should not be a problem, although you may want to move the two-way path signal just north of the junction
16:00<krinn>2nd picture looks more like a carrier than a railnetwork
16:00<V453000>nyway, monorail dun
16:01<@Alberth>looking GOOD ?
16:01<@peter1138>That double-size UI...

16:34<andythenorth>we could troll without having to play the game

16:35<krinn>it exist already, i think it's named #openttd
16:36<Samu>no, not this
16:38<Samu>to have the game itself always joining the same chat channel
16:38<Samu>as a choice
16:38<Samu>arg, i suck at explaining things
16:38<+glx>there was a wrapper doing that
16:39<Eddi|zuHause>yes, admin port can forward chat to a channel
16:39<Eddi|zuHause>so several servers could agree to forward to the same channel
16:39<@planetmaker>reddit servers do that with chat forwarding
16:40<Samu>what is the server which we retrieve the list of games?
16:40<Samu>the chat would be built upon that
16:41<Eddi|zuHause>if you build it, they will come.
16:41<@planetmaker>oh no. That's not the purpose of the master server
16:41<@planetmaker>using soap with admin port you could do that already now within an arbitrary irc channel
16:41-!-Tirili [] has joined #openttd
16:42<@planetmaker>thus I don't think it's needed

16:46<andythenorth>managing replacing vehicles is a faff
16:46<andythenorth>‘create group from vehicles with this shared order’
16:46<andythenorth>might be a more useful version of ‘find vehicle by number (in list of several hundred), create new group drag vehicle to group, add shared vehicles'
16:47<Samu>I see, each individual server would forward chat to one irc server?
16:47<andythenorth>also, filter train list by ‘trains containing vehicle type x'
16:47<Samu>why not just have everyone connect directly to that irc server instead?
16:47<Samu>independent of server
16:48<+glx>because not everybody want this
16:48<Samu>okay, trolls are bad then
16:50<andythenorth>apart from nobody plays, it would be really noisy
16:50<andythenorth>also what would they talk about?
16:50<andythenorth>all playing different games
16:50<andythenorth>so the chat would be full of non-useful chat :)
16:51<Samu>they would have the ability to chose to where to chat to
16:51<Samu>shift+enter, ctrl+enter, hmm alt+enter...
16:51<Samu>and could toggle that chat off or on somewhere in settings

17:13<deniz1a>hello. is there a way to show the catchment area of existing stations?
17:13<FLHerne>It saves me having to care about anything that isn't systemd, since those things are almost always less nice to deal with
17:14<FLHerne>deniz1a: No, unless it got added and I haven't noticed yet
17:14<deniz1a>oh ok
17:14<@planetmaker>deniz1a, unfortunately no(t that I know)
17:14<frosch123>deniz1a: no, it's obfuscated because the game mechanics are so arbitrary there :)
17:14<deniz1a>ok thanks
17:14<@planetmaker>besides there's two definitions of catchment area - which makes it somewhat difficult to add :)
17:15<frosch123>yeah, adding a visualisation would certainly come along with making them more sane :)
17:15<frosch123>i think someone even had a patch for that, juanjo probably
17:15<frosch123>is that his name? nor sure
17:15<@planetmaker>there was one... dunno by whom
17:15<krinn>denizla: for that i use the build a new station tool and put it over the one i want to get its area
17:15<@planetmaker>it's a valid name of a contributor, yes
17:15<deniz1a>when you join different stations, the area between them is also added to the catchment area, right?
17:16<@planetmaker>depends :) Read the wiki page
17:16<frosch123>anyway, the patch stored the catchment area as bitmask-matrix in the station struct, so was efficient
17:16<deniz1a>ok thanks
17:16<@planetmaker>hm, why didn't we use it then, frosch123 ? :)
17:17<frosch123>it's probably burried in the todo list somewhere :)

17:39<frosch123>percentage of sea
17:39<frosch123>islands vs. all-land
17:39<krinn>you mean % of sea area vs land area?
17:40*andythenorth did a silly thing, splitting SGBT / SGCN by economy :P
17:40<andythenorth>by climate rather
17:40<andythenorth>now I have to special case all my generated docs :D
17:40<andythenorth>silly andythenorth
17:40<krinn>frosch123, so water is always at level 1?
17:40<frosch123>level 0 :p
17:41<krinn>lol yeah 0
17:41<frosch123>there are some patches on the forums with water depths
17:41<krinn>oh shitty, so we could detect river vs sea as river couldn't be 0 then!
17:41<frosch123>but they have the problem that flooding over multiple levels is weird
17:41<Samu>speaking of water
17:41<frosch123>krinn: untrue
17:42<frosch123>boith rivers and canals can be at level 0
17:42<FLHerne>krinn: River can be 0, sea doesn't flood river
17:42<Samu>nevermind... i rather not ask
17:42<frosch123>anyway, the whole issue with the api functions is that they behave so inconsistently
17:42<FLHerne>I don't think the map generator does it, but scenarios might
17:42<frosch123>a ship depot tile is a ship depot tile, but it is a canal/river/sea tile at the same time
17:42<krinn>from what i see, river "falls" into sea
17:43<frosch123>similar for tree tiles, vs. land/coast tiles
17:43<frosch123>krinn: the generated rivers behave like that, but scenedit can do other things
17:43<Samu>are you forbidding river destruction?
17:43<frosch123>can you can use canals in game to stop flooding, and build at level 0
17:43<@planetmaker>krinn, yet you can have at lv0 have river and canal tiles. They are not flooded as they're already water
17:44<krinn>well, it mean AI can detect river except with scenario but using current API still no?
17:44-!-Tirili [] has joined #openttd
17:44<@planetmaker>it's a common way to build rail tracks at lv0, frosch123 :)
17:45<krinn>if i see a water tile, i could assume if height >= 1 it's a river
17:45<@planetmaker>or a canal
17:45<Samu>it would be cool if river tiles were undestructible by any means
17:45<krinn>canal aren't a problem you can detect canal tile
17:46<@planetmaker>krinn, and at height 0 it might still be a river or canal with slope
17:46<@planetmaker>thus coast
17:47<krinn>tbh, mistaking river and sea on coast is less a problem, you know it will cost you a lot
17:48<Samu>could the river generator be a bit more lock friendly? locks take 1x3 tiles, and the rivers sometimes make a turn right away after the ramp
17:48<andythenorth>FIRS fruit plantation is ugly
17:48<andythenorth>maybe I could fix it
17:49<andythenorth>also bedtime
17:49-!-andythenorth [] has quit [Quit: andythenorth]
17:49<krinn>but ability to find a tile with water is just a river and not some fine water area imply diff cost: river can be clear, water couldn't
17:50<krinn>well, water could, but remain there after clear (only wasting money)
17:51<Samu>oh krinn, u got a nice idea

18:09<Samu>trying to familiarize with the area names
18:10<Samu>upon land area information on a Coast tile, it comes up with 'Coast or riverbank'
18:11<Samu>a waterfall tile says: "River"
18:13<Samu>lake tiles are also 'river', hmm, ok. So clearing a lake tile will not cause it to refill with water. Is that intended?
18:14-!-naliao [] has joined #openttd
18:16<Samu>I was suggesting that 'river' tiles would refill with water, if adjacent with 'water' tiles
18:17<Samu>but I can see there could be an issue with lakes
18:17<Samu>upon lake generation, these tiles are not connected to 'water' tiles
18:18<krinn>river are candy eyes, any change to that status would mean openttd have to do work with them for special case: what do you prefer having 100 cars running in your game before your cpu is dead or 3 cars only because openttd keep handling things nobody cares?
18:21<Samu>I don't undestand the difference
18:21<Samu>there's tons of water already
18:23<Samu>is it because water flooding can't go up terrain levels? there's only a few rivers in comparison to the amount of 'water' tiles
18:25<krinn>can only flood at level0, but without checking code, i'm sure if any river is set at level0, the river will endup flooded too, i don't think anyone cares to preserved a rivertile from flooding

18:32<@planetmaker>krinn, that's against the project mission :)
18:32<Flygon>I'd love if water

18:32<Flygon>Be multi-leveled
18:32<Flygon>As in...

18:33<Eddi|zuHause>yeh, just make an inverse snowline height grf
18:33<supermop>if you play with a northern hemisphere mindset, which I assume many do, all of your potential farmland may be covered in snow at map creation
18:33<@planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause, tsunami-height grf? :D
18:34<supermop>so you have to wait for farms to start spawning
18:34<Eddi|zuHause>i don't think that is a game feature :p
18:34<@planetmaker>supermop, use ogfx+landscape and set snowline height accordingly. You can choose summer in January
18:34<supermop>and can't place them in SE
18:34<supermop>planetmaker: what if i want summer in july
18:34<Flygon>I play with a Southern Hemisphere mindset
18:34<supermop>but also want to place farms in scenario editor
18:35<Flygon>Also when I play a European or American map
18:35<@planetmaker>then choose snowline accordingly...
18:35<Flygon>I place cars on the left
18:35<Samu>arf... gonna paintbush some river tiles, be right back, maybe then it will be clearer
18:35<Flygon>I simply can't build a road network trying to remember that interchanges need to be built a non_Australian way x.x
18:35<supermop>but farms should stilll be snowwy in winter
18:36<krinn>(i think we're half way to get the "we need rain" query)
18:36<supermop>basically just the ability to set current month in SE would help a lot
18:36<@planetmaker>supermop, you can't have it simply run a few months?
18:36<supermop>the editor date doesnt change if you leave it unpaused
18:37-!-liq3 [] has joined #openttd
18:37<supermop>you would have to start game, let it run 6 mo, save then edit again
18:38<krinn>going bed before samu ask cops to tickets speeding cars
18:38<supermop>not impossible but certainly odd and then you have a company already in your scenario
18:38-!-krinn [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
18:38<@planetmaker>supermop, ah, yes. Though you can delete the company again
18:39<supermop>seems like there would have been enough maniacs playing canadian games to have requested this already...
18:40<supermop>let alone midwestern americans, russians, and anyone else who lives where the lowlands are snowcovered in winter
18:41<supermop>Flygon: for australian games what point does snow serve? I've never seen snow here
18:42<Flygon>supermop: Seriously?
18:42<Flygon>I live like
18:42<Flygon>20 minutes from where it snows
18:42<Flygon>And I live in Sunbury. :|

19:01<Samu>so here's my paint-shop work on river tiles:
19:02<Samu>I hope it's clear enough what I was trying to explain
19:03<Samu>if a player destroys a river tile, it's simply turning it into a dried river tile, per that explanation
19:03<supermop>hawaiian island which contains Honolulu, Waikiki, Pearl Harbour
19:04<supermop>has the most interesting geography/topography in my opinion
19:04<supermop>Although This map is using finnish town names, temperate climate, and swiss trains
19:05-!-Myhorta [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
19:05<supermop>and i've put rivers in the valleys on the west side of the island which in real life is currently fairly dry for the past thousand years or so
19:06<supermop>as all the wind and rain comes from the east and is trapped by high mountains
19:07<supermop>i can't remember which firs economy this one has in it
19:07-!-Supercheese [] has joined #openttd
19:10<Samu>since there's lakes that aren't connected to water tiles, a player could simply dry an entire lake by clearing the tiles all in one go
19:11<supermop>i can also dry a real lake by filling it with dirt
19:11<supermop>or digging drainage trenches away from it
19:11<Samu>ew... I tried to explain things as best I could
19:12<Samu>a player could build rains or road, whatever, on top of dried river tiles
