09:33<Eddi|zuHause>a joint project of NekoMaster and TrainLover... what are the odds of that working out?
09:39<FLHerne>Better than the ones involving SkiddLow
09:39<FLHerne>And definitely better than anything I'm involved with
09:39<@planetmaker>better than the one for CETS?
09:41-!-Nathan1852_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:42<Eddi|zuHause>CETS totally worked out
09:43<Eddi|zuHause>i've had a lengthy discussion with MB about how to make 12/8 wagons not glitch
09:43<Eddi|zuHause>which he then used to put those wagons in DBSetXL 0.9
09:44<Eddi|zuHause>which totally everyone uses by now :p
09:51<@Alberth>I am not part of everyone :(
10:32<andythenorth>is it game time?
10:32<@Alberth>it could be
10:33<andythenorth>is there a server and map and such?
10:33<@Alberth>I am sure both are present, but perhaps not in a playable combination :p

14:48<andythenorth>is Busy Bee good to play? o_O
14:49<Eddi|zuHause>why would it?
14:49<andythenorth>was a hunch
14:49<ST2>I think yes, players loved it ^^
14:49<andythenorth>planetmaker: can you handle this one? o_O
14:50<andythenorth>ST2 :)
14:52<ST2>BTPro have a testing server with BusyBee (#99) - mostly to test DB entries (game results, and other info)
14:52<ST2>ofc, it's a goal server (30 BB goals, at 100%) - goal is defined by server controller software
14:53<ST2>well, not all like competitive games (with goals, I mean ^^)
14:53<andythenorth>TILE_CLASS_ROAD covers both trams and roads?
14:53*andythenorth wants to invalidate
14:55<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: yes
14:55<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: you'd need to check the roadtype
14:56<andythenorth>eh TMWFTLB?
14:56<Eddi|zuHause>i don't know if it is possible at all
14:56<Eddi|zuHause>otherwise, it shouldn't be a lot of work
14:57<andythenorth>strictly I think it’s available
14:58-!-Pereba [~UserNick@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
14:59<andythenorth>eh not sure actually
15:05-!-Pereba [~UserNick@] has joined #openttd
15:08<andythenorth>secondary production time ’window’ for combining cargos
15:08<andythenorth>was 30 days
15:08<andythenorth>I played a game with 90 days, which I preferred
15:08<andythenorth>I could make this a parameter, but is it the kind of thing a player is able to choose meaningfully?
15:09<Eddi|zuHause>maybe var62 could double up for road/railtype depending on the tile class
15:10<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: make it a list of meaningful values?
15:10-!-tokai|noir [] has joined #openttd
15:10-!-mode/#openttd [+v tokai|noir] by ChanServ
15:10<andythenorth>best I came up with is 30 | 90 | 180
15:10<andythenorth>but eh
15:10<andythenorth>seems like a fairly arbitrary choice
15:11<Eddi|zuHause>well, the other option would be freely choosing a number (between 0 and 255)

15:19<Eddi|zuHause>if the "bb" section of var60 had 2 free bits, i would propose: 1) bit is set when tile contains road, 2) bit is set when a road bit faces this tile (always 0 if tile is not adjacent)
15:20<Eddi|zuHause>the 2nd bit could be used to put gates into fences and stuff
15:23-!-Belugas [] has quit [Quit: On snow, everyone can follow your traces]
15:26<frosch123>well, considering how hard ottd tries to not create dead ends facing buildings, the 2nd bit looks pretty useless
15:30<Eddi|zuHause>i'm more thinking about player-built eyecandy roads there

18:59-!-drac_boy [~oftc-webi@] has joined #openttd
19:00<drac_boy>still trying to read through the specs again as been a long time but quick question nevertheless: is it not difficult to say have a train grf that would disable itself if it didn't see a particular track grf being loaded for example?
19:06<Eddi|zuHause>that seems like a terrible idea, but it's like one line of code to check for a certain GRF-ID
19:07<drac_boy>heh yeah well the train/track was the only example that came to mind now but this was really for something else. thanks btw
19:08<drac_boy>if I was really looking at tracks I probably would had rather coded a check to limit locomotives if the standard tracks were only present :)
19:11*drac_boy still needs to bug friend to tell me the whole scope he's planning on :|
19:22<drac_boy>at least thankfully its not north america - something I don't always like a lot
19:25-!-Celestar [] has joined #openttd
19:52<Eddi|zuHause>why would anyone like north america...
19:52<Eddi|zuHause>they haven't had any good trains since the 1950s
19:55<Supercheese>Yeah we have crap-all for trains in most of the country
19:55<Supercheese>outside of major metropolitan areas and the occasional trunk freight line (there's like, what, two of those?) there's nothing
19:56<drac_boy>heh well actually when playing I do end up with a lot of the BCR electric locomotive (dated 1984) etc .. but hmm yeah good point about usa tho
19:56<Supercheese>I cannot recall the last time I saw a passenger train
19:57<Supercheese>maybe BART back when I visited San Francisco, if that even counts
19:57<Supercheese>it's more of a light rail/metro really
19:58-!-Pulec [~pulec@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
19:58<Eddi|zuHause>i'd imagine BART falls under "major metropolitan area"
19:59<Eddi|zuHause>so you have like 5 of those and the east coast
19:59<drac_boy> heh :->
20:03<Supercheese>the only long-distance passenger rail company is Amtrak... and they're pretty bad
20:03<Supercheese>I'd much sooner drive across the country than take a train
20:05<Supercheese>note the enormous void spaces
20:06<drac_boy>I only see nevada ... what you actually refering to?
20:07-!-Pulec [~pulec@2a01:4f8:110:1463:127::2] has joined #openttd
20:09<Supercheese>"only nevada" is roughly equivalent to "only Germany"
20:09<drac_boy>you telling me theres supposed to be more than one major urban area in THAT state? :)
20:09<Supercheese>[110,622 sq mi vs 137,847 sq mi]
20:11-!-Wolf01 [] has quit [Quit: Once again the world is quick to bury me.]
20:12<Eddi|zuHause>drac_boy: there are more long distance train lines in germany than there are in the entire united states
20:13<drac_boy>mind you theres several major non-amtrak routes that are much more than just urban commuters .. even sleepers too (something which amtrak seem to still not quite want to do in northeast for some reason, weird when you consider that NYC had so many of them)
20:14<drac_boy>oh..about NYC .. they used to have a direct service (or at least their carriages got forwarded) so you could board in ottawa and wake up in washington or even be transfered to miami without even getting off at all
20:14<drac_boy>ah well..gone now, the lines are only for CN/CP if they even exists now
20:14<Eddi|zuHause>and how long ago was that?
20:15<drac_boy>1980-1990's or so
20:15<drac_boy>at least ottawa-chicago somewhat still can be done now but you got to actually change trains so .. meh .. strangely it run often so there must be enough demand for that
20:19<drac_boy>sorry someone got here so I'm going have to afk now
