01:17<supermop>i wonder why the TTD monorail is buried in a trench instead of being above grade like the TTO monorail
01:18<Supercheese>Indeed, that always has bothered me
01:18<supermop>the only reason would be to allow a similar platform height to regular rail,
01:18<supermop>otherwise it is just needlessly expensive to dig all of that trench
01:19<supermop>and then its tricky to draw sprites as you need to account for the negative space
01:19<supermop>which means that you must draw a small portion of the neighboring tile's track
01:20<supermop>which then makes it hard to get junctions and corners looking ok
01:20<supermop>drawing the whole beam and clearance above grade would look better
01:21<supermop>but i guess it causes issues with the vehicles effectively being too tall?
01:22<supermop>it looks especially odd on foundations - where the effect is of builing a retaining wall, filling it with dirt, then digging some of the dirt back out
01:25<supermop>try to rectify by changing the standard - and suddenly you have the added problem of two mismatched standards
01:26<supermop>at least almost noone cares about default monorail
01:26<supermop>newgrf wise, so I guess that affords more freedom to mess around and break the rules
01:26<supermop>as far as i know there are no monorail sets out there
01:28<supermop>my dilemma is, entrench the monorail as standard, or raise the platform level for monorail rail type
01:52<chillcore>good morning interwebz o/
01:52<chillcore>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CR_431V9St4
01:53<Pikka>supermop, level crossings?
01:54<supermop>the ttd monorail is perhaps even worse for a level crossing than the tto one though Pikka
01:55<supermop>as you car dives into a ditch before smashing into a concrete beam
01:56<supermop>also i think tto forbade monorail level crossings
01:56<supermop>cant recall though
01:58<supermop>i recall someone proposing to amend the base set with little drawbridges at monorail crossings to bridge the trench at one point

01:58<Pikka>lunar did that :P
01:58<supermop>yeah?
01:59<Pikka>don't know if dan ever posted screenshots ;)
01:59<supermop>i never saw any sprites anywhere though, i guess because no one takes monorail seriously enough to put it in railtype sets
01:59<Pikka>monorail was the standard railtype in lunar
01:59<supermop>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:TamaToshiMonorail6061.jpg
02:00<supermop>is that like tto mars?
02:00<Supercheese>there used to be stuff at Pikkawiki
02:01<supermop>at above Tama pic: you need a pretty deep trench if you want at grade monorail to have same platform height as rail
02:01<Pikka>my pineapple monorails look a bit like that
02:01<Pikka>how they deal with level crossings is anyone's guess
02:02<supermop>only one pineapple monorail, no?
02:02<Pikka>only one
02:02<Pikka>should do some more, and/or maglevs...
02:02<Pikka>for the base set if nothing else
02:02<supermop>well suffice to say there is not yet any really newgrf monorail graphic standards
02:02<supermop>pikkabase?
02:02<Pikka>something like that
02:03<supermop>so i guess you or anyone can make it up as they see fit
02:03<supermop>really monorail seems destined to wait in the wings for more flexible bridges
02:03<supermop>then be built primarily elevated
02:04<supermop>i only want it to decorate my cities on thin beamed bridges
02:04<supermop>could fake it with foundations if railtypes supported custom foundations
02:17<supermop>so tracked down anymore gems of queensland tropic modernism Pikka ?
02:17<Pikka>well
02:18<Pikka>I've got architecture and urban design in brisbane, volumes 1 and 2, from the library. So if that doesn't do it I don't know what will. :)
02:21<supermop>oooh
02:21<supermop>wasting time modelling hopper windows on this station
02:23<V453000>watup
02:24<supermop>i really like the graphic design on that monorail; just a big stepped gradient orange rectangle
02:36<supermop>also, hi V453000

04:38<supermop>now im distracting myself with interior renders of this station.....
04:39<V453000>:)
04:40<supermop>hmmmm what if there was a tool that took ottd saves, then loaded them into a 3d engine or a modeller with parametric functionality, and plopped in blocks of buildings for various buildings used in game, and could render first person vistas of your ottd town
04:40<Supercheese>sounds like Streets of SimCity
04:41<Supercheese>they sort of did that with SimCity saves
04:41<Supercheese>waaaaay old though
04:41<V453000>:0 nice
04:41<Supercheese>then again so is TTD
04:41<V453000>but yeah I guess that isnt utterly nonsense, could be quite cute
04:42<V453000>one of the dudes did a "openttd" animation before already
04:42<Supercheese>TTD is actually older, so nevermind
04:43-!-roidal [~roland@cm140-210.liwest.at] has quit [Quit: WeeChat 1.1.1]
04:44<supermop>yeah my neighbor had it back when it was out
04:44<supermop>and simcopter
04:45<Supercheese>I was so young I could never properly play simcopter
04:46<Supercheese>always crashed
04:46<Supercheese>Streets though was easy
04:46<Supercheese>run around in a car, and hey if a building got in your way, equip 4 rocket launchers and destroy it
04:48<Supercheese>dang now I kinda want to play it again
04:48<Supercheese>nostalgia

04:49<supermop>Rails of Open TTD
04:50<supermop>might get motion sickness when your train goes through 'curves' though
04:51<Supercheese>Nah, OTTD supports smooth turning
04:52<Supercheese>only newgrf that does it though is unfinished
04:52<V453000>it is just a huge hack anyway
04:52<Supercheese>yeah moar spritez
04:52<V453000>also I think some of the CS newgrfs already do - or will - copy it and use it as wel
04:52<V453000>ofc for just like 2 vehicles
04:52<Supercheese>45° too large? then make it 15° or whatnot
04:53<Supercheese>https://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/cets <- that one
04:53<V453000>yes
04:54<V453000>http://forum.tycoonez.com/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=3305&start=300#wrapheader
04:54<@planetmaker>it's not exactly a hack... it's the only sensible use of the turning / train bend variable I can actually think of :)
04:54<V453000>http://forum.tycoonez.com/download/file.php?id=8938&mode=view
04:55<V453000>sure pm but the code is just insane
04:55<@planetmaker>though I wonder why it was introduced in the first place... it's ancient :)
04:55<supermop>tilting?
04:55<Supercheese>NARS used it for tilt
04:55<Supercheese>TurboTrain can be observed using it
04:55<@planetmaker>uh, I see.
04:55<V453000>I only know about CETS
04:55<supermop>acela?
05:09<Supercheese>Hmm, no custom vehicle effect sprites yet
05:09<Supercheese>just the default ones
05:09<Supercheese>although I guess you could replace one with different graphics
05:11<Supercheese>if you have breakdowns disabled, perhaps you could replace the aircraft breakdown smoke and then use that as a new effect sprite
05:11<Supercheese>oh wait, the callback isn't even allowed for aircraft
05:11<Supercheese>well dang
05:11<chillcore>hmm ... you mean like vehicle specific sparks? that would be a bit overkill?
05:11<chillcore>also o/
05:11<Supercheese>nah, I was brainstorming if the request for aircraft con trails was even possible
05:12<chillcore>ah ok
05:12<Supercheese>since the create_effect callback doesn't work for aircraft, it isn't
05:12<chillcore>we have the smoke but that is it?
05:12<__ln__>chem trails?
05:12<Supercheese>can't do those either
05:12<Supercheese>;)
05:13<chillcore>not even replace them by NewGRF?
05:13<chillcore>just asking because me and NewGRF ...
05:14<Supercheese>anyway, time for bed

07:36<@planetmaker>pretty neat stations, supermop :)
07:37<supermop>trying to keep it in the spirit of ogfx
07:37<supermop>in case we ever want an ogfx+ station set
07:37<chillcore>took the words right out of my mouth planetmaker
07:38<supermop>so i'm not worrying about any exotic station bits yet - just default behavior with a few sprinkles
07:38<@planetmaker>if you want such set: sure! :) I mean to provide some coding for that, but I should be pretty careful with what I can currently promise, given my time I could dedicate
07:39<@planetmaker>I can't really say that one style or the other is better
07:40<chillcore>you can have both styles supremop and let the player build the one he likes best for a given situation;)
07:40<supermop>well the fully open brick arch is maybe best then.. with the others you'd probably want to check for adjacent station tiles when deciding if to draw them
07:40<@planetmaker>I don't think that doors would hurt, nor windows
07:40<supermop>chillcore: of course but i feel like an ogfx+ set should be as light and easy to use as possible
07:41<chillcore>oh right ... opengfx+
07:41<@planetmaker>supermop, it's easy to offer them as separate stations
07:41<supermop>add extra sprinkles in an ogfx++ set
07:41<@planetmaker>even in the context of opengfx+ :)
07:41<chillcore>^^^
07:41<supermop>ah
07:42<supermop>well i'm trying to 'sell' this in the sense of convincing a coder to code, so i do not want to ask for anything too complex!
07:42<@planetmaker>supermop, if one can make one station, it's easy as pie to make the same with different graphics :)
07:42<supermop>tomorrow i'll have the iron column instead of wall version, more like original graphics
07:42<@planetmaker>but identical dimensions
07:42<chillcore>and honestly half an arch does not look as bad as you'd think it would
07:44<supermop>ok
07:44<chillcore>if you want to see one build two platforms at once and delete one ;)
07:45<supermop>well my goals are three stations, based in spirit on the rail, mono, and mag stations
07:45<supermop>then maybe 1 or two more to round it out
07:45<supermop>but all stations available for all railtypes
07:45<chillcore>yes please
07:46<chillcore>hehe
07:46<supermop>additional would be a very basic freight station, and maybe a 1940s or so station to fill the gap between the 1880s looking rail station and the 1960s looking monorail station
07:50<supermop>any thoughts on glass vs no glass?
07:59<chillcore>please do not crash the bots
07:59<chillcore>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsZsd5qtbo4
07:59<chillcore>:P
07:59<V453000>supermop: you can render the glass separately with alpha
07:59<chillcore>maybe the one without glass could use some sturdier struts
07:59<chillcore>but can not choose
07:59<V453000>32bpp half-alpha files work normally
08:01<supermop>the reflected sky color seems a bit distracting, so i think plain grey rectangles rendered then made transparent with alpha in PS may let users see their trains better
08:02<V453000>meh, or that
08:02<supermop>in real life these types of station have much less glass, but that's no fun as you can't see your trains!
08:02-!-sla_ro|master [~sla.ro@95.76.27.245] has joined #openttd
08:02<V453000>sounds way simple but as you see fit
08:02<@planetmaker>supermop, it needs two stations (per railtype) anyway: two tracks wide and 1 track wide
08:03<supermop>planetmaker: yes, i assume i will do plain open platforms with a small shelter like in default
08:03-!-smoke_fumus [~smoke_fum@188.35.176.90] has joined #openttd
08:03<supermop>for the single platform
08:06<supermop>V453000: ill try rendered glass with alpha. it just looks so blue in that one rendering...
08:06<V453000>well sure but I bet you can tweak environment values; or bake some texture into the glass itself
08:06<V453000>or something
08:08<V453000>btw "realistic texture scale" just looks as if you coloured the objects with a solid color
08:08<V453000>idk how visible will the bricks be if they are so tinyu
08:08<V453000>-u
08:10<supermop>hmm
08:10<supermop>yeah bricks twice as big could help
08:11<V453000>just in general :)
08:11<supermop>im going to try turning off AA as well
08:12<supermop>and upping the procedural variation between bricks
08:12<supermop>maybe up to 2% rgb variation
08:13<V453000>even if you had saturation random to 40% it would be ok :)
08:13<supermop>and overlay some dinginess towards lower part of brick walls
08:14<supermop>bottoms of platforms always look gross in NYC
08:15<@planetmaker>yup, that helps to avoid the hovering building impression
08:18<supermop>planetmaker: can you split the station posts off into a new topic?
08:19<supermop>seems out of place given that name of topic is about roads..
08:19<supermop>if you are busy ill just flag for another moderator
08:21<@planetmaker>done
08:21<supermop>yay thanks
08:22<@planetmaker>up to you to choose a more imaginative title for the 1st posting :)
08:22<supermop>ok bed time! more iron and steel to model tomorrow
08:23<chillcore>good night

08:31<chillcore>got any suggestions for if the question arises agian?
08:33<Eddi|zuHause>hm... dd_rescue is slooow
08:33<Eddi|zuHause>it's been over 12 hours, and it copied 200GB out of 1.5TB
08:34<chillcore>that is a lot of data to copy in one go ...
08:36<chillcore>from experience on my slower machines doing smaller chunks saves time
08:36<chillcore>not sure if you have that option though
08:36<Eddi|zuHause>how do you mean?
08:37<chillcore>copying 10 times 10 GB is faster then copying 100GB at once
08:37<chillcore>that
08:37<chillcore>not al 10 at the same time ofcourse
09:20<Eddi|zuHause>i'd much rather just let that computer sit in the corner for 3 days than fiddle with stuff
09:21<chillcore>huhu I agree that stopping it now is a bad idea
09:21<chillcore>but maybe there is an option for it for in the future ;)

09:22<Eddi|zuHause>also, i don't see how that helps when just making a linear copy. it's not like it has to worry about allocating file space on the target filesystem or something
09:22<Eddi|zuHause>chillcore: you think i'll remember that option in 5 years when i need it again?
09:23<chillcore>memory usage? ... remembering what it did and what still needs to be done
09:23<chillcore>I dunno what causes it ... just know that it happens ;)
09:23<chillcore>and yeah ... maybe you will not remember xD
09:23<Eddi|zuHause>the slowest copies i ever had was when writing large files to an NTFS

14:46*andythenorth ponders a new GS
14:46<andythenorth>o_O
14:47<@Alberth>fun one, I hope?
14:47<andythenorth>“Go West” or such
14:47<andythenorth>unlock towns one at a time
14:48<andythenorth>I’m playing current Busy Bee, and I think it’s ‘done’
14:48<Samu>this is the longest named setting in the game
14:48<@Alberth>mostly it is, there are a number of small enhancements you could make
14:48<andythenorth>it solves the ‘no big goal’ style of gameplay
14:49<andythenorth>interestingly, with a small FIRS economy, it’s not as fun
14:49<andythenorth>the goals are frequently similar
14:49<andythenorth>by contrast, it makes Full FIRS actually playable
14:49<@Alberth>not enough industries?
14:49-!-tokai|mdlx [~tokai@port-92-195-89-42.dynamic.qsc.de] has joined #openttd
14:49<@Alberth>oh, must try that one then
14:49<andythenorth>not enough types / flows
14:50<Samu>water_structure_on_competitor_canal
14:50<Samu>help me short this name
14:50<andythenorth>small economies were invented after I started playing SV / NoCarGoal
14:50<andythenorth>iirc
14:50<@Alberth>guessed so, I have that problem with default industries in tropical too
14:50<andythenorth>for cargo goal scripts, more industry types isn’t a benefit
14:50<andythenorth>as they only use 3 or 5 types or so
14:51<Samu>build_on_competitor_canal
14:51<@Alberth>ah right, BB uses all of them :)
14:51<andythenorth>yup
14:51<andythenorth>so with Full FIRS, ~60 industry types, you get a crazy organic network
14:51-!-tokai [~tokai@00012860.user.oftc.net] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
14:51<@Alberth>sounds like a great experiment :)
14:51<@Alberth>recommended map-size?
14:52*andythenorth looks
14:52<andythenorth>512x512 or 256x512
14:52<@Alberth>doesn't matter much, perhaps
14:52<andythenorth>larger is too large
14:52<andythenorth>smaller is not enough space
14:52<@Alberth>yeah something like that sounds good
14:53<andythenorth>with FIRS Basic, I want something like ‘connect all the steel mills’
14:53<@Alberth>haven't played 256x256 for a long time :)
14:53<andythenorth>but that’s not possible, can’t integrate that tightly
14:53<@Alberth>cargo-dist gets in the way too then, perhaps
14:53<andythenorth>ish
14:54<andythenorth>cdist isn’t fighting me currently, except with supplies
14:54<@Alberth>one of the advantages of a highly fragmented network :)
14:54<andythenorth>“Steel King: you’ve been given the contract to supply all the steel mills with iron ore, scrap metal and coal”
14:54<andythenorth>“You have 35 years to complete your goal"
14:54<@Alberth>sounds SV-ish
14:54<andythenorth>but tying a GS to FIRS that tightly isn’t possible / easy
14:55<@Alberth>it's more a scenario you'd want to do
14:55<Samu>base = GameSettings, var = construction.build_on_competitor_canal, from = 114
14:55<Samu>what is this 114?
14:56<@Alberth>ever tried the FreightTrainChallenge scenario andy?
14:56<@Alberth>Samu: first savegame version that has the setting, probably
14:56<andythenorth>no
14:56<Samu>oh, I see
14:56<Samu>then it's 195
14:57<andythenorth>I’d just use ships :P
14:57<@Alberth>http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=59689
14:57<andythenorth>that’s missing the point
14:58<@Alberth>I didn't do the town goods, which makes it a lot easier, I was told
14:58<Samu>def = is default value?
14:58<Samu>hmm, so tempted to put a true there

15:31<Samu>how do I solve this
15:33<Samu>default to enabled?
15:34<Samu>default to disabled?
15:41<@Alberth>fix in afterload.cpp
15:42<@Alberth>you added bits to the map, those should be set correctly when loading an old savegame
15:43<@Alberth>you incremented the savegame number too I hope, or you now have save games without addition, and savegames with addition, both with the same savegame number
15:44<Samu>it is bumped to 195
15:44<@Alberth>k
15:44<Samu>it is already being used to do 3 things in
15:44<Samu>1
15:44<Samu>this is the 4th
15:44<@Alberth>and 'from' is also 195
15:45<@Alberth>that's the nice thing about your own patches, you can do several things at a time :)
15:46<@Alberth>trunk has to be more clean
15:46<Samu>if (IsSavegameVersionBefore(195)
15:46<Samu>converts owner of water part of docks to new owner
15:47<Samu>moves a bit
15:47<Samu>from industry to another positiion
15:47<Samu>converts all to that position
15:47<Samu>now, adding this setting
15:47<Samu>my question is
15:47<Samu>what do I default it to?
15:48-!-Pereba [~UserNick@187.58.121.42] has joined #openttd
15:48<@Alberth>default value of the setting
15:48<Samu>even for old games?
15:49<Samu>it's only 1 setting to control 2 behaviours
15:49<@Alberth>old games don't have the setting, so it's added with the default value
15:49<Samu>old games: locks can already be placed on canals owned by competitors, but docks cannot
15:49<@Alberth>if the map doesn't correspond you get interesting situations
15:50<Samu>it's a decision problem
15:50<Samu>I'm inclined to convert it to enabled
15:51<@Alberth>you want to be able to have all possible situations that can happen in old games at least
15:52<@Alberth>if you eg would forbid locks on competitor canals, and you load an old game that uses it, you have a lot of work to convert it
15:53<@Alberth>if you can express everything that can exist in an old game by default, conversion is much easier
15:53<Samu>there was no such setting at all
15:53<Samu>only the behaviour :(
15:53<@Alberth>so it was sort implied enabled thus :)
15:54<@Alberth>sort of*
15:55<Samu>ok, enabled
15:55<Samu>that means, I don't have to convert anything
15:55<Samu>it is defaulting to enabled i think
