10:19<Ox4>hey guys
10:20<Ox4>could somebody explain me this one: Deliver 100 bags of mail 100 squares in 100 days:
10:20<Ox4>£55 * 100 squares * (1 - 80*0.004 - 10*0.004) = £3520?
10:20<Ox4>I got it from the wiki page: https://wiki.openttd.org/Game_mechanics#Delivery_payment_rates
10:20<Ox4>early delivery time for mail is 20 and late is 90 days

10:46<andythenorth>50 / 66
10:50<@Rubidium>Ox4: https://wiki.openttd.org/Cargo_income is much clearer with respect to the actual calculations and such
10:50<@Rubidium>the one in game mechanics looks kinda iffy to me at best
10:51<Eddi|zuHause>Ox4: be aware that "days" occasionally means "2.5 days"
10:53<Ox4>Eddi|zuHause: interesting... thank you
10:56<@Rubidium>my calculations end up with about 5100 instead of 3520 for 100 units of mail over 100 squares in 100 days
10:57<@Rubidium>@calc 4550*100*100*(100/2.5)*(255-(40-20))*2**-21
10:57<@DorpsGek>Rubidium: 203943.252563
10:58<@Rubidium>hmm... what's going wrong there...
10:58<Johnnei>@calc 55 * 100 * (1 - 80 * 0.004 - 10 * 0.004)
10:58<@DorpsGek>Johnnei: 3520.0
10:59<@Rubidium>@calc 4550*100*100*(255-((100/2.5)-20))/2**21
10:59<@DorpsGek>Rubidium: 5098.58131409
10:59<@Rubidium>there... that's the one
10:59<Johnnei>Or even more elaborate:
10:59<Johnnei>@calc 55 * 100 * (1 - (100 - 20) * 0.004 - (100 - 90) * 0.004)
10:59<@DorpsGek>Johnnei: 3520.0
11:00<@Rubidium>@calc 55*100*(1-((100/2.5)-20)*0.004)
11:00<@DorpsGek>Rubidium: 5060
11:01<@Rubidium>I did not add the last one, because (100/2.5) < 90
11:01<Johnnei>It does work out, but the examples given are straight to the answer and don't show intermediate steps
11:02<@Rubidium>well.. 3520 is wrong, 5098 is "right"; just compare it with the in-game payment graph
11:03<@Rubidium>mail for the first 50 days is just below GBP 112 for 10 units over 20 tiles
11:03<Ox4>anyway I didn't find from what point the counter starts :-(
11:04<@Rubidium>@calc 55*100-(1-(50-20)*0.004-(50-90)*0.004)
11:04<@DorpsGek>Rubidium: 5498.96
11:04<@Rubidium>hmm... that formula on the game mechanics even misses the amount...
11:05<@Rubidium>in any case, counting is whenever it's in a vehicle
11:05<Johnnei>The example given on the page assumes that no form of inflation has applied though
11:08<Ox4>Rubidium: hence, if capacity of a vehicle is smaller then the earining is bigger, right?
11:12<andythenorth>51 / 66
11:12<andythenorth>@calc 51/66
11:12<@DorpsGek>andythenorth: 0.772727272727
11:15<Eddi|zuHause>Ox4: you earn more if the vehicle is immediately full on loading
11:17<Ox4>ok, one more question
11:19<Ox4>I am testing autoreplace feature and am receiving (money limit) message, but the current balance is $200k
11:19<Ox4>why the money limit is triggered?

11:47<Eddi|zuHause>Ox4: the money limit as set in the settings is what must be leftover after the replacement
11:47<Eddi|zuHause>so if the replacement costs 50k, and the limit is 200k, you need to have 250k for the replacement to happen
11:49<Eddi|zuHause>i think 200k is the default

13:34<frosch123>anyway, you didn't ask a question
13:34<Zippyvinman>Yeah, that's what I'm referring to. I read on the wiki and it said about that. I have the debian server but I don't really know what I'm doing, hahaha

13:35<Zippyvinman>just typing that will go find it online and download/install it?
13:36<Zippyvinman>or I need to put the installer or zip on the USB im booting from
13:36<frosch123>well, or use your package manager
13:36<Zippyvinman>I'm unsure what that is
13:36<frosch123>however you usually install stuff on your system
13:36<Zippyvinman>hahahaha
13:36<Zippyvinman>Im on a PC rn
13:36<Zippyvinman>Windows 7
13:36<Zippyvinman>I'm using another computer
13:37<Zippyvinman>I want to install it on it to be just used for openTTD
13:37<andythenorth>he needs to use whatever Debian provides for getting ports
13:37*andythenorth has no idea :P
13:37<frosch123>Zippyvinman: i have no idea what you are missing
13:37<Zippyvinman>I think I'll be able to open ports once I get there
13:37<Zippyvinman>uh
13:37<frosch123>if you installed debian, you can also install openttd
13:37<frosch123>openttd is part of all major linux distributions
13:37<Zippyvinman>one sec
13:38<andythenorth>frosch123: that concept is quite magical if you’re unfamiliar with linux and ports trees and such :)
13:38<Zippyvinman>I went here https://www.debian.org/distrib/
13:38<Zippyvinman>and got the small USB install for AMD processor
13:38<frosch123>so, you do not have it installed?
13:38<andythenorth>what should happen if he just types ‘openttd’ or such?
13:39<Zippyvinman>The computer that I have plugged the USB in with the ISO in, I booted from ISO, and I have the command line I believe
13:40<frosch123>ok, type "whoami"
13:40<frosch123>does it say "root"? or something else?
13:40<Zippyvinman>got nothing
13:40<Zippyvinman>doesn't take keystrokes look like
13:40<Zippyvinman>typing makes beepps
13:40<frosch123>ok, please refer to the manual for installing linux then :)
13:41<Zippyvinman>ohhhhhhhh ok
13:41<andythenorth>hmm

13:41*andythenorth learns how it works
13:44<Zippyvinman>Can I run Ubuntu or no? It's a bit easier with a GUI for me but I'm not sure if I can run it through it
13:45<frosch123>why don't you just run a server on your windows machine?

13:46<Zippyvinman>I probably could. Does it use a lot of RAM?
13:46<Zippyvinman>ram*
13:46<frosch123>no, zero
13:46<frosch123>exactly the same as a client
13:46<Zippyvinman>one sec
13:46<frosch123>if you are playing yourself, you need no extra resources
13:46<Zippyvinman>I'll be playing with 2-3 friends
13:47<frosch123>doesn't matter
13:47<frosch123>if you are playing, you get the server for free
13:47<frosch123>no extra resouces
13:47<frosch123>the clients simulate the game state, not the server
13:47<Zippyvinman>What if they want to play when I'm not on?
13:47<Zippyvinman>like in the same game
13:47<frosch123>well, your client needs to keep running
13:48<frosch123>whatever computer is the server needs to keep running
13:48<Zippyvinman>Could I run the server separately on the same computer? Like a non-gui version that runs in the background that I can connect to?
13:48<frosch123>then you need twice the cpu power
13:48<frosch123>you can just run the gui client, and join spectators when not playing yourself
13:49<Zippyvinman>TBH I could just run it on other computer directly
13:49<frosch123>running a separate server on the same machine does not add anything good
13:49<Zippyvinman>it has 7 installed I believe
13:49<Zippyvinman>I think I'm gonna do a fresh install of 7 on my other PC. How should I go about deleting everything? I can do that from the install right?
13:50<Zippyvinman>I have the disc
13:50<frosch123>we do not ship openttd on discs
13:50<Zippyvinman>I mean my windows 7, haha
13:50<frosch123>no idea, never installed 7
13:51<Zippyvinman>I'll just try it without reinstalling, I need to open ports for MP still, yes?
13:51<frosch123>yes, by default noone but the nsa may connect to your computer
13:51<frosch123>you have to let your friends in
13:52<frosch123>you have to battle the firewall in yuor router, and in your computer
13:52<frosch123>when your server is on servers.openttd.org, you have won
13:53<+glx>(if advertising is enabled ;) )
13:53<Zippyvinman>I have my computer's firewall turned to low, so that shouldn't be a problem. Is that a metaphor for I just gotta try it out and see if it'll work?
13:53<Zippyvinman>And how does advertising work? that's like if I wanted it public right?
13:53<frosch123>you will have to configure your router in any case
13:54<+glx>yes advertising shows it in the list
13:54<frosch123>advertise means that it will be listed on servers.openttd.org and your friends can see it
13:54<Zippyvinman>Yeah, I'll be able to do that. I need to do it on both my router, as well as the modem?
13:54<Zippyvinman>or just one of the two
13:54<frosch123>if you do not advertise you have to tell your friends your ip address, but if it doesn't work you will have no idea whethe the problem is on your or their side
13:55<+glx>only the server needs ports opening
13:55<frosch123>so, for the first time you should definetly use "advertised"
13:55<Zippyvinman>Yeah, I can just put a password on it, right?
13:55<frosch123>if it is necessary
13:56<frosch123>but usually noone joins your server
13:56<frosch123>if you take a look at servers.openttd.org, most are empty
13:57<Zippyvinman>Ah, ok, installing openttd on the computer now
14:00<Zippyvinman>Ok, so I'm gonna log onto my modem or router to open ports, does it matter which?
14:01<frosch123>@ports
14:01<@DorpsGek>frosch123: OpenTTD uses TCP and UDP port 3979 for server <-> client communication, UDP port 3978 for masterserver (advertise) communication (outbound), and TCP port 3978 for content service, a.k.a. BaNaNaS (outbound)
14:01<Zippyvinman>But on Router or Modem?
14:02<frosch123>i have no idea what's the difference of those two
14:02<frosch123>i only have one box to connect to the internet
14:02<@Alberth>everything that blocks outbound communication from your computer to "the internet" at those ports
14:03<Zippyvinman>My modem sends internet to my router I thoughtt
14:03<Zippyvinman>I have Verizon Fios and it's like a 2 in 1 dealio, or maybe it's just a second router
14:03<Zippyvinman>pretty sure it's a modem
14:03<Zippyvinman>I'll log into it first and see if it works
14:03<+glx>usually outbound is not blocked, but inbound needs unblocking
14:04<@Alberth>good point glx

14:08<frosch123>Wolf01: only 5.5 days till full moon :)
14:08<Zippyvinman>It says there are two IPs for the computer I'm trying to host it on, one with a 0 and one with a 1 at the end, how do I know which to use?
14:08<Zippyvinman>cmd
14:09<Zippyvinman>wrong computer ^
14:10<Zippyvinman>Ok so its asking for source ports and destination ports
14:10<Zippyvinman>which is it that I'm putting "Any" for and which gets the above?
14:11<frosch123>set both to the same value
14:11<frosch123>ports 3978 and 3979
14:11<Zippyvinman>Ok one sec
14:11<frosch123>both udp and tcp
14:11<frosch123>sometimes you can do that with two forwards, sometimes you have to configure four

14:15<Zippyvinman>Ok, got them open
14:15<Zippyvinman>Now I go on the client and try to start it up?
14:15<frosch123>yes, just in main menu go to multiplayer, start server, advertised:yes, start
14:15<frosch123>then hope it shows up on servers.openttd.org
14:18<Zippyvinman>darn, not there
14:18<Zippyvinman>should the ports be Any -> 3978/3979?
14:18<Zippyvinman>instead of itself
14:23<Zippyvinman>hmmm tryiing out some other stuff

14:52<@Alberth>ask a question you need an answer for

14:54<@Alberth>it showed up on the server list right?
14:55<Zippyvinman>This is so weird, the laptop's IPv4 address keeps changing
14:55<Zippyvinman>No, it's not
14:55<Zippyvinman>it keepps changing from 192.168.1.190 to 192.168.1.191
14:55<Zippyvinman>it's changed from 0 to 1 now 0 again
14:55<@Alberth>192.168 is all local LAN
14:56<Zippyvinman>yeah, but it has two options for port forwarding
14:56<Zippyvinman>nothing else has 2 addresses
14:57<@Alberth>you're forwarding a local LAN address?
14:57<Zippyvinman>ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
14:57<Zippyvinman>I think it's because I have 2 networks adapters
14:57<Zippyvinman>I'm trying to forward it to my laptop
14:57<Zippyvinman>the ports
14:58<Zippyvinman>I think so yeah

14:58<@Alberth>except you hopefully :)
14:58<Zippyvinman>My laptop I'm using to run the server is connected by wireless and wired to my modem
14:59<Zippyvinman>i'll dc the wire so it's wireless only

15:18<Zippyvinman>hahaha
15:18<Zippyvinman>just me and my friends will be using it
15:18<frosch123>you should set it to pause when noone is playing
15:18<Zippyvinman>How do I do that? Is that in the cfg?
15:19<frosch123>just experiment with the rest
15:19<frosch123>https://wiki.openttd.org/Min_active_clients
15:20<frosch123>then you can just join spectators when you are not playing
15:20<frosch123>and it will pause when everyone is specator or left
15:20<frosch123>if you want to play at different times of the day
15:20<Zippyvinman>ahhhh ok
15:21<Zippyvinman>any way to set the time change to be slower?
15:21<frosch123>you should set "vehicle never expire:on", "breakdowns:off" and start in the future when everything is available
15:21<Zippyvinman>but the economy stays the same speed and etc?
15:21<frosch123>otherwise your breaks downs while you are not playing

15:34<frosch123>competetive ones, normally playing ones, and passive ones
15:35<frosch123>the passive ones only build road networks and stuff for other players to use
15:35<frosch123>if you are not playing all the time, i think it makes little sense to run a competetiive ai along your friends
15:36<Alkel_U3>disasters are pretty annoying in a multiplayer game, especially the large UFO. You come back after a few decades of absence to find out your mainline railway's been blasted and the resulting jam ranges across a half of the map

17:21<kamnet>Good evening for anybody who is still awake
17:26*kamnet ponders boxing up OpenTTD for retail sale. :D
17:29<Supercheese>to what end?
17:29<Supercheese>hard to sell what folks can get for free
17:30<Supercheese>although some folks do have success with that
17:34<__ln__>some people would certainly buy a box even if the contents would be free to download, but indeed what would be the selling point for the big audience?
17:34<__ln__>(i can imagine some, but all of those require quite a bit of money)

19:07<kamnet>People who are too afraid to download from the Internet, but not too afraid to order online from Amazon?
19:11<FLHerne>Doing that might get someone to ask awkward questions about the origins of early OTTD?
19:13<FLHerne>OTOH, if anyone cared they'd probably have cared before now
