00:00<supermop>someone would need to write a patch for it
00:07<chillcore>hmm there is code for decorations ... but I really sux at bit manipulation
00:14<chillcore>trees and streetlights on pavement
00:15<chillcore>there are eight roadside types in total
00:15<chillcore>you've got a source checkout?
00:17<chillcore> line 447
00:19<chillcore>not sure which sprites they are ... most lkely it is seperate trees and streetlights which get pasted in dependant on zone
00:20<chillcore>emphasis on most likely ... NewGRF is not my strong point ;)
00:21<supermop>yeah there are streetlights in base set
00:21<supermop>but they are very basic
00:22<supermop>i dont think they could be used to modify the sidewalk by overlays
00:22<supermop>as if you drew a flat piece of sidewalk for the streetlamp sprite it would still be flat on a slope
00:23<supermop>i think you would need a patch to along for a road new grf to specify additional possible sprites to use? i have no idea about how the actual game code works
00:24<supermop>do the little lane drivewways look best with cobblestones or asphalt?
00:26<chillcore>cobble ;) just the tile on the right side, the bottom driveway is a tad too bright? or the white 'lines' seem to go in the wrong direction?
00:28<chillcore>nitpicking details ^^^ my eyes are rather tired and might see it differntly tomorrow ;)
00:29<chillcore>the gutters look great
00:29<chillcore>also there will be vehicles wizzing around and peeps should be busy playing

00:31<supermop>the cobbles do run along the length of that that drive rather that the width
00:31<supermop>your eyes do not lie
00:32<supermop>here in the laneways, cobbles run in courses parallel to the lane for most of the length, but sometimes at a crossing or junction they then run perpendicular
00:32<supermop>so once i noticed my texture mapping error, I could not decide how to resolve it
00:33<supermop>as the driveways are crossing sidewalks, i think the cobbles should be perpendicular to the lane, parallel to the sidewalk, as in the big driveway
00:34<supermop>however, showing them the otherway could hint at the normal lengthwise character
00:34-!-Guest371 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:36<supermop>now i just need to do the non-sidewalk road dead end
00:36<chillcore>k ... here the cobble in the gutter and the driveways does not flow in one another, most of the times
00:37<supermop>maybe i will have the road die into gravel
00:38<chillcore>hmm I get what you mean but you can not predict what will be on the other side of the gravel, again
00:40<chillcore>could be anything really ... the side of a depot or station, grass, trees, monument, whatevs except for road as then it would connect
00:42-!-liq3 [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:42<chillcore>correction ... two halftile roads facing eachother do not connect
00:43-!-liq3 [] has joined #openttd
00:45<chillcore>as long as you do layered stuffs you can experiment as much as you want and maybe code options in your NewGRF later on even
00:50<chillcore>but as a general rule ... don't worry too much about what could be there, usually if your newGRF is uniform in style (and complete) it comes out pretty good

04:34<supermop>getting them?
04:34<supermop>am i getting a tram?
04:34<Pikka>when am I coding them?
04:34<Pikka>the ones you sent a while back... I should get on those. :)
04:35<supermop>well i'm more focused on drawing and rendering this road set now
04:35<supermop>i've self-imposed a design freeze now
04:35<supermop>so no more modelling until after a first release
04:36<supermop>now just render etc
04:36<supermop>brb noodles
04:37<@Terkhen>good morning
04:37<supermop>hi terken
04:38<andythenorth>ok can haz alpha-10 road hog now
04:38<andythenorth>on bananas
04:39<andythenorth>especially moar translations
04:39<andythenorth>rest is just a few sprites and stuff
04:43<andythenorth>so eh 13k downloads of Squid, and no feedback / suggestions in forums
04:43<andythenorth>this is a good thing, yes/no?
04:49<andythenorth>also, is a translations release 2.1.0 or 2.0.1?
04:57<supermop>no feedback is good feedback
04:59<andythenorth>can haz Squid 2.0.1
04:59<andythenorth>of very little interest to you unless you’re Polish or Italian or German

05:19<supermop>should a zebra crossing have a stop line behind it, or no need to bother?

09:54<@Alberth>andy, as in, you don't want to wait for completion? :)
09:55<andythenorth>as in, 5 out of 7 goals are currently unstarted
09:55<andythenorth>with 2 years to run
09:55<andythenorth>and not very interesting also
09:55<andythenorth>maybe I should have 10 goals
09:55<@Alberth>newer BBs allow finishing at an arbitrary rate, mostly
09:56<andythenorth>this is latest from bananaramas
09:56<andythenorth>so if I start a 2 year goal, I don’t have to complete within 2 years?
09:56<@Alberth>if you deliver something every 7 years, the goal will stick
09:57<@Alberth>2 years from now, or it's expired :)
09:57<@Alberth>it's fine to deliver at a higher rate too :p
10:00<andythenorth>make sense
10:00<andythenorth>makes *
10:00<@Alberth>every time you deliver a non-zero amount, the timer starts again

19:22<OldManPopo>Quickie Question: Trains set to full load seem to cap out produced items around 70%, I thought (And I may have thought wrong) I remembered that if you get away from Full Load and just let them run free that production levels will increase? Is this true? It's been a while since I tried really hard at the mechanics. Wiki doesn't seem to have this information anywhere
19:23-!-HerzogDeXtEr1 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
19:24<ST2>maybe this helps:
19:30-!-Wolf01 [] has quit [Quit: Once again the world is quick to bury me.]
19:36<OldManPopo>I'm guessing my brain isn't processing that correctly, it looks very confusing. I have Very Good and Excellent ratings from my station, but transported levels aren't going above 76%.. Perhaps I'm confusing some numbers somewhere?
19:37<OldManPopo>There's virtually no delay on trains arriving at the station to take the goods away

19:37-!-Oddingar [~Odd@] has joined #openttd
19:40-!-supermop [] has joined #openttd
19:42<OldManPopo>So if I'm reading this right, on a standard 256x256 map, there's a 16.7% chance that any given industry will boost it's production.... If that 16.7% chance succeeds, my station, with it's Very Good and Excellent ratings, has a 67% chance to increase it's production levels, if it fails the 67% chance of increase, it will decrease production levels... Am I getting that right? :)
19:45<OldManPopo>Ugh... hold on.. I'm using Smooth Economy... That changes the rules even further..
19:46<_dp_>ye on smooth economy there is extra bonus for > 80% rating, but you got the idea
19:47<OldManPopo>So since I can't seem to get my ratings above "Very Good" with Full Loads on (there's like a few months out of the year it seems to hold onto Excellent), the production holds steady around 70-75%
19:47<_dp_>try building statue or renewing engines
19:48<_dp_>advertising also helps if within range
19:49<OldManPopo>Engines are the best Diesels available currently, so it's running as fast a train as I can for the now. I may have to try the statue thing, see if that helps. I'm making good money as it is, but I'm greedy and want more ;)
19:51-!-roadt_ [~roadt@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
19:51<OldManPopo>So the numbers I should be monitoring isn't the production percentage, but rather my rating from the station.... The Production level is the end result of my rating
19:52<OldManPopo>And my rating is determined by how quickly in and out my trains take the items from the station
19:55<_dp_>yeah, you got it
19:56<_dp_>on that page you can also see full list of factors that determine rating
19:56<_dp_>like not only speed, but an age of engine matters too. there is no easy way to renew same engine tho(
19:57<_dp_>but statue is the easiest one, so definitely build it if you haven't done it yet
19:58<OldManPopo>I know there's a setting in there somewhere for what time to renew it (I think it defaults to 6 months past due date, or something like that). I suppose that could be tweaked
19:58<OldManPopo>AFK a few minutes
20:19-!-FLHerne [] has quit [Quit: There's a real world out here!]
20:47<luaduck>is there an easy way to hide the GUI elements? (console command or something?)
20:48-!-gnrd [] has joined #openttd
20:54<Geoff_AK>I always found that if you have more than one vehicle loading at a station that the rating never went above a certain point. I have been away from the game for a long time though but getting the urge again ;)
20:54<Geoff_AK>thats if they were waiting for cargo btw not if cargo was available to take
21:02-!-Pikka [] has joined #openttd
21:04<Eddi|zuHause>luaduck: hide from what?
21:04<Eddi|zuHause>luaduck: close all windows with the "del" key
21:05<Eddi|zuHause>luaduck: or make screenshots without gui elements with the "normal zoom screenshot" or "maximum zoom screenshot" features in the ? menu
21:05<luaduck>sorry, should have been more specific
21:05<luaduck>the top button bar and the bottom stats bar
21:05<luaduck>I could screenshot but I plan on taking video sooo
21:05<Eddi|zuHause>no, they cannot be hidden from the game
21:06<Eddi|zuHause>you can make a video from exporting a screenshot every tick
21:06<Eddi|zuHause>(but this will also hide your mouse cursor)
21:07<Eddi|zuHause>i suppose you could patch it to hide the menu bar...
21:08<Eddi|zuHause>the screenshot console command has parameters
21:08<Eddi|zuHause>but i still don't quite know what you're trying to do
21:09<Eddi|zuHause>you can also have two screens, and align the menu left or right, to have it only show up on the screen you're not recording

21:43<OldManPopo>Coming back to the repeated sounds of trains breaking down is not a good thing....
