02:29<V453000>hm, was there a way to make a heightmap from a save?
02:32<kamnet>You should be able to open the game, then go to the Save menu and select "Export to heightmap".
02:32<V453000>oh :)
02:32<V453000> /me noob
02:33<kamnet>Or I thought it was there. Apparently not
02:33<V453000>XD k
02:33<kamnet>Or maybe I remember that form an old OpenTTD version. Okay, then, rename the save as .scn, open it in Scenario Editor. You can export it there.
02:33<V453000>thats cute
02:34<kamnet>No the second definitely works.
02:34<kamnet>Just expressing me frustrations. I was sure you could do it from within a savegame
02:35-!-Progman [] has joined #openttd
02:35<kamnet>It's labeled "Save Heightmap" in Scenario Editor
02:40<V453000>yeah, I somehow remembered I have seen it somewhere but I couldnt get a grasp where :D
02:42<V453000>worked perfectly :) thanks for the help
02:48<V453000>just wanted to get a symmetrical map, got it now :)

04:19<kamnet>Congratulations, andythenorth
04:22<andythenorth>eh, nothing changed for players
04:27<andythenorth>but about 75% of industries can now be compiled in isolation
04:27<andythenorth>which takes 20s
04:27<andythenorth>instead of 1-2 mins
04:27<kamnet>It's your own personal accomplishment, though, and you've worked hard on it.
04:28<andythenorth>not winning until it’s shipped
04:28<andythenorth>also I can start in on some graphics that Dan provided 2 years ago
04:28<andythenorth>paper mill, steel mill
04:28<andythenorth>oil refinery

16:52<Johnnei>Being happy that code compiles just to see that it doesn't work :D
16:52<frosch123>why is public server running a nightly?
16:52<frosch123>did we add something fancy recently?
16:53-!-Celestar [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
16:53<frosch123>Johnnei: don't skip important steps
16:54<frosch123>after compiling you need to make it link first :p
16:54<Johnnei>ha :D Thank god that VS takes care for me of that :p
16:54<Johnnei>It's just a logical error, if only I knew the codebase a bit better

17:10<frosch123>did we get featured somewhere?
17:11<frosch123>there are so many new people here and on the forums recently
17:13<Garfield222>I would like to ask something about server
17:15<frosch123>feel free
17:15<frosch123>no idea whether i can answer
17:15<Garfield222>I have on my local disk file downloaded for years from
17:15<Garfield222>Now folder r907 is not available anymore on
17:15<Garfield222>Question, is the a way to find those old nightly build somewhere ?
17:16<frosch123>no, it only has the most recent ones
17:16<Garfield222>does it mean, that older build are deleted automaticly ?
17:16<frosch123>yes, they take a lot of disk space :)
17:17<frosch123>in theory you can checkout the revision and if you figure out the nml version from that time, build it from srouce
17:17<frosch123>i..e the source is versioned and still available
17:17<frosch123>but not the builds
17:18<Garfield222>ok, thank you for your answer. I can understand that it takes a lot of space, but actualy old build are needed sometimes, because of old gamesaves.
17:18<frosch123>then only use grfs from bananas
17:20<Garfield222>gamesaves are not always make by me. So I have no influense.
