06:22<V453000>iz official nao
06:23<V453000>no pictures tho, so doomed to unsuccess
06:23<Eddi|zuHause>"and it all went downhill from there"
06:24<Eddi|zuHause>need to update your signature
06:26-!-Myhorta [] has joined #openttd
06:27<V453000>not until 0.0.1 :P
06:35<V453000>if every unfinished project would be in my signature then the signature would need considerably more spaces :P
06:41<@Alberth>maybe divide space based on finished percentage?
06:42-!-smoke_fumus [~smoke_fum@] has quit [Quit: KVIrc 4.2.0 Equilibrium]
06:44*andythenorth likes the fallen tree
06:58<andythenorth>next I draw these square things

07:06-!-Wolf01 [] has joined #openttd
07:07<Wolf01>ho o/
07:28<andythenorth>he went big
07:29<Wolf01>tidied up the room this morning, i was able to fit the crane and the arocs in a box
07:30*andythenorth must tidy up
07:31<Wolf01>and i moved in the ceiling the old racing wheel, now i have at least 343000cm3 of free space (70x70x70) in the room
07:31<@Alberth>just enough for a chair :)
07:32<@Alberth>andy, maybe move the low flat round tanks to the front, leaving a path between all the tanks etc?
07:32-!-Supercheese [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
07:32<andythenorth>maybe yes
07:32<andythenorth>there can be more layouts also
07:32<andythenorth>I have a few tiles to add still
07:33-!-Supercheese [] has joined #openttd
07:33<andythenorth>there’s probably enough of the big grey pipes now?
07:33<Wolf01>what's the grey ball near the chimney?
07:34<andythenorth>the chimney on the left?
07:35<andythenorth>most likely a pipe that doesn’t look right
07:35<Wolf01>at the top
07:38<V453000>andythenorth: pipes are nicer but still need details, tank-things with water still too flat :P
07:44<andythenorth>Wolf01: oh that’s the wrong smoke :D
07:44<andythenorth>I fixed that
07:44<andythenorth>V453000: too flat in | dimension?
07:44<V453000>could be just me idk
07:45<andythenorth>if I reduce height any more in y dimension, they’ll just look like sausages
07:45<andythenorth>or melons :P
07:45<V453000>I mean increase height
07:45<V453000>it looks to me like if the camera is a bit too low in that projection
07:45<V453000>pixel art camera = GG
07:47-!-gelignite [] has joined #openttd
07:55<andythenorth>better, but now the sides are too flat
07:58<V453000>just make darker pixels in the corners there and you are fine
07:58<V453000>bright pixels define the shape
08:00<Wolf01>i can't even understand what changed XD
08:00<Wolf01>except the size of the image
08:00<andythenorth>the big open tank
08:00<V453000>the round tanks are different a little bit
08:01<Wolf01>ok, they look more round now
08:03<Wolf01>i didn't even noticed they were distorted before, i had to compare the 2 pictures
08:04<V453000>duh :D
08:04<Wolf01>and that's why i shouldn't be allowed to draw
08:05<V453000>OR why you should? :P
08:06<Wolf01>no, believe me, i'm not able, i'm trying with all my efforts but i don't even understand the prospective... maybe i could be a new Picasso or Dalì of pixel art
08:07<V453000>OCD like this just comes with practice
08:09<V453000>also, I am starting to question that making sprites for OpenTTD in 3D takes less time than drawing them by hand even in x4 zoom
08:09-!-sla_ro|master2 [] has quit []
08:09<V453000>because the amount of shit to deal with when making train tracks is just off the scale
08:10<V453000>my trello board is all track problems
08:13<V453000>differences of overlay/underlay, diagonals fitting to straight tracks, junction underlays fitting to each other, overlays in junctions being weird when stacked on top of each other, tunnels are a whole category on their own, sleepers not being cut in half in any of the direction, ............................
08:13<andythenorth>V453000: if I used CGI I’d fall in a hole
08:15<andythenorth>because all hax needed
08:16-!-alluke [] has joined #openttd
08:16<andythenorth>I’d probably want to script the CGI :P
08:16-!-alluke [] has quit []
08:16<V453000>well yeah hax are just insane
08:16<andythenorth>I’d _probably_ end up representing the entire world in code
08:16-!-alluke [] has joined #openttd
08:16<andythenorth>then it might as well be a 3D game :P
08:16<V453000>my fav is the fake height of tunnels/bridge supports
08:16<alluke>is there any autoconnect command for the url bar
08:17<andythenorth>I love fake height stuff
08:17<andythenorth>hax you can do in pixels
08:17<alluke>i already have ?channels= and &nick= there
08:17<alluke>still need one click to join
08:17<V453000>yeah in pixels you dont even notice
08:17<V453000>well you do but easy to fix
08:18<V453000>not even mentioning train distortion, said that enough already
08:19<V453000>when I made tracks by making actual 3D model of them - not textured plane
08:19<V453000>then the lower-in-Z-axis or higher-in-Z-axis ends really reward for a great amount of bullshit as well XD
08:19<V453000>was fine with pixels :(
08:20*andythenorth has pixel drawing bug again :P
08:20<andythenorth>but only buildingses
08:20<alluke>i dont know anymore what to do in ottd
08:21-!-cursarion [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:21<@Rubidium>have you managed to connect everything and have a 100% rating on all stations and a 100% rating overall?
08:21<alluke>no because thats impossible
08:22<@Rubidium>it isn't impossible
08:22<V453000>Rubidium: declare it impossible and you won =D
08:22<@Rubidium>I was fairly close with my 128x128 map
08:22<alluke>and i like to build pretty things
08:23<andythenorth>V453000: much regrets that I have to also draw trucks and boats
08:23<andythenorth>trains aren’t too bad, mostly
08:24<V453000>why would trucks be that much worse than trains?
08:24<V453000>boats are big as fuck, I get that
08:24<andythenorth>trains mostly symetrical
08:24<andythenorth>specially wagons
08:24<andythenorth>only 4 views
08:24<andythenorth>half the work
08:24<V453000>well it is a LOT nicer if you draw all 8
08:26-!-cursarion [] has joined #openttd
08:26<V453000>I would think RVs are less work than trains but then I never actually drew RVs
08:27<V453000>all the various cargoes stack up I guess
08:29<Hiddenfunstuff>I need a new way to play TTD..
08:30<andythenorth>use a GS
08:30<Hiddenfunstuff>which one?
08:30<V453000>produce more than 200 000 goods on 512x512 in a single month
08:30<Hiddenfunstuff>I tried couple already but it became too easy
08:30<andythenorth>Busy Bee, Silicon Valley or NoCarGoal
08:30<V453000>doesnt get easy :)
08:30<andythenorth>V453000: ‘all the various cargos stack up’
08:30<andythenorth>^ ha ha ha ha
08:30<Hiddenfunstuff>Busy Bee i played 1 game with.. Whats the silicon valley?
08:31<andythenorth>I don’t have hardly any cargo support yet :P
08:31<V453000>not commenting on that andy, shame :(
08:31<andythenorth>Silicon Valley is industry construction
08:31<andythenorth>build n industries all in one town, with transport goal also
08:31<andythenorth>can be very hard, depends on the settings
08:31<Hiddenfunstuff>supports FIRS?
08:31<andythenorth>you end up with one town stuffed with industries
08:32<andythenorth>best with FIRS basic economies imho
08:32<V453000>Hiddenfunstuff: have you tried YETI? a different approach to "wait till industries grow to give you traffic"
08:32<alluke>andy why dont you move the station part to the long side on firs sand pits?
08:32<Hiddenfunstuff>I didnt like the look of YETI
08:32<@Rubidium>aren't most new-ish trains symetrical? RVs usually aren't, although... there are exceptions:
08:32<Hiddenfunstuff>it was close to a toyland scheme
08:33<alluke>wasier to build bigger stations and faster loading too
08:33<V453000>well then if you take looks > how it works, then it is hard to find new ways to play :P
08:33<andythenorth>so much unreleased FIRS 2 :P
08:33<Hiddenfunstuff>I kinda fallen for the FIRS..
08:34<alluke>i think it needs more dirt in the corners
08:34<alluke>to make bigger stations fit in better
08:35<Hiddenfunstuff>FIRS with the "FIRS" economy and the USSR train set..
08:35<andythenorth>well there are many opionions about the quarry
08:35<andythenorth>and no way to satisfy them all
08:35<andythenorth>so eh ;)
08:35<V453000>quarry is nice
08:36<V453000>definitely not a place that needs improvements
08:36<andythenorth>mostly it looks better than FIRS 1 and builds in more locations
08:36<andythenorth>so WIN
08:36<alluke>whats the difference between flood loader silo and tipple
08:36<alluke>is other for grain and other for minerals or what
08:36<andythenorth>whichever you like
08:36<andythenorth>one is more old, one is more modern
08:37<andythenorth>use CHIPS however you like :)
08:37-!-Snail [] has quit [Quit: Snail]
08:38*andythenorth should do a USSR economy in FIRS
08:38<andythenorth>too many bad jokes
08:38<Hiddenfunstuff>I dont know but i like the ussr trainset
08:38<andythenorth>in Soviet Economy, FIRS plays you
08:38<Hiddenfunstuff>due to the AC and DC electrification
08:38<V453000>I like how xUSSR desyncs in multiplayer
08:38<Hiddenfunstuff>it does?
08:39<andythenorth>next wtf industry: pyrite smelter
08:39<andythenorth>but first, chores
08:40-!-Snail [] has joined #openttd
08:40<Hiddenfunstuff>are you gonna make an "WTF" economy for FIRS aswell?
08:40<V453000>andythenorth: please no more pointless cargoes or I quit supporting every single cargo inthe game in my sets :P
08:40<V453000>the main FIRS economy is WTF :P
08:40<alluke>the tipples should unite when dragging over several tracks
08:40<V453000>OH OK THEN
08:40<Hiddenfunstuff>the FIRS?
08:40<andythenorth>WITH AT LEAT 9000 GAMEPLAY BENEFITS
08:41<Hiddenfunstuff>Started a new game in 1024x4096 Alpine, Rough and hilly terrain.. with height level of 250..
08:41<V453000>4096 ._.
08:41<Hiddenfunstuff>And ofc theres a mountain range in middle of the strip of map going all the way from oth ends
08:41<alluke>ukko-pekka will have rough times there :P
08:42<Hiddenfunstuff>No finnish trainset this time.. russian
08:42<V453000>I will never understand how anybody expects to utilize a map bigger than 512x512
08:42<alluke>in mp they make bit more sense
08:42<Hiddenfunstuff>Well when you got like 800 tile wide mountain in the middle..
08:42<Hiddenfunstuff>and water on both sides
08:43*alluke wishes for signaled tunnels and bridges into stable
08:43<Hiddenfunstuff>oh yes
08:43<andythenorth>FIRS quarrry, Russia style
08:43<V453000>yeah so that they might behave exactly the same as normal tracks. Build normal tracks instead? :D
08:43<Hiddenfunstuff>Seems approapriate
08:43<alluke>atm my looooooooong recyclable trains clutter because of tunnel in their route
08:43<Hiddenfunstuff>level terrain: Plough through a mountain
08:44<alluke>i dont want to
08:44<Hiddenfunstuff>I played 1 multiplayer game with guy who was insane with the level terrain tool
08:44<Hiddenfunstuff>Literally when he was building an expansion to his mainline.. it was 0 level difference.. straight line for like 800 tiles
08:45<alluke>did the game have original acceleration model?
08:45<Hiddenfunstuff>after like year 6000 i had so much money i started to turn the whole map into waterworld
08:45<Hiddenfunstuff>I dont remember
08:45<V453000>which brings up a question why in the hell is original acceleration still default
08:45<alluke>it should be removed from the game permanently
08:46<V453000>for savegame compatibility no, but having it default for beginners is super retarded
08:47<Hiddenfunstuff>Oh heck yes.. playing the silicon valley GS.. I must make an alcohol valley! onto a 65 pop town..
08:48<Hiddenfunstuff>Also doesnt help that the village is in bottom of a pit surrounded by mountains on all 4 sides
08:48<V453000>you wanted it hard didnt you
08:48<Hiddenfunstuff>Yeah.. This game isnt going to end in 50 years
08:48<alluke>long and hard
08:49<Hiddenfunstuff>Its gonna be costly.. not the terrain modification but bribing the village continiously so i can make space for it to grow
08:49<alluke>magic bulldozer is friend
08:49-!-Snail [] has quit [Quit: Snail]
08:50<Hiddenfunstuff>But you know the towns love it when you level out their only hill in sight
08:50<V453000>with magic dozer authority does not decrease
08:50<Hiddenfunstuff>you need to bribe them back up so you can drop a damn bus stop in their streets etc
08:51<Hiddenfunstuff>Since this village is in a bottom of a pit.. I need to level terrain around it to make space for it grow.. and for my stations
08:52<alluke>bridges over stations would be useful too
08:52<Hiddenfunstuff>Oh yes that.. and over depots
08:52<Hiddenfunstuff>infact.. bridge over any buildings below
08:53<Hiddenfunstuff>It seems quite stupid to having to bulldoze a line of buildings under your bridge through a town
08:53<V453000>does it make more sense to make a bridge above skyscrapers? :P
08:54<Hiddenfunstuff>no, you could demolish the city centre and run your 6 rail mainline through it
08:54<Hiddenfunstuff>it would be cheaper and you could place signals on it
08:55<alluke>god how i hate ecs coal mines
08:55<alluke>they cant keep up production any way
08:56<alluke>level drops always low with constant demand
08:56<Hiddenfunstuff>I like long trains.. But i hate how 1 train can empty an mine for a month

09:37<Eddi|zuHause>now you're making me look up what was odd?
09:45<@Alberth>that's not odd :p
09:45<@Alberth>or maybe it was odd that it wasn't odd?

11:47<@Alberth>I looked into the eints puzzle 5789, pushed a small fix to avoid a crash on missing plural, and think would fix the "last upload" information
11:47<@Alberth>the deeper issue is howver more complicated
11:48-!-day [~day@] has joined #openttd
11:48<@Alberth>much of the code assumes newer changes are better, but that should be done only for the same base string text
11:49<@Alberth>in the issue you switch back to an earlier base text, and at least the language download code doesn't handle filtering on base text string
11:52-!-andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
11:52<@Alberth>so you get the newest string, but with the wrong base text

11:54<frosch123>it's funny how various permutations of the digits in 5789 result in valid eints task
11:55<frosch123>7589 7859 at least
11:56<@Alberth>right, 7859 thus (says the paper on my desk :) )
12:00*andythenorth wonders
12:00<andythenorth>are these the same guys that made the MiniMetro game?
12:00<andythenorth>both in NZ
12:02<V453000>aint got unity
12:03<andythenorth>sad times
12:03*andythenorth should learn unity
12:03<andythenorth>unity is the new flash
12:03<V453000>yeah probably :D

12:08<frosch123>V453000: i am quite sure any photoshop from 2006 counts as old
12:08<V453000>for 8bpp it is probably fine, but for normal work I would not be able to work with stuff below CS6 nowadays
12:10<frosch123>hmm, i think there wasn't even the experimental 32bpp thingie in 2006 :p

12:14<frosch123>Alberth: i think the "newer string is better" is not that wrong
12:14<frosch123>assuming you change the baselanguage from A to B, then the translation is marked outdated
12:14<frosch123>if you change back from B to A, does the translation remain outdated?
12:14<frosch123>what if it was updated inbetween?
12:15<frosch123>you cannot tell whether someone only updated it to match the new baselanguage
12:15<frosch123>or whether someone also improved other things
12:17<@Alberth>you are still thinking in a single base string right?
12:17<@Alberth>what I am trying to tell is that when you switch to a previous base text, the translation switches (or rather should switch) along, and pick the newest translation of the new base text
12:17<@Alberth>if you switch back, the translation also switches back
12:18<@Alberth>at least that was the intention, but it's not working currently
12:18<@Alberth>ie each unique base text has a number of translations, and the newest counts
12:19<@Alberth>rather than merging all translation texts, and then picking the newest one
12:20<@Alberth>maybe having separate streams for each unique base text was a wrong idea
12:21<@Alberth>you cannot tell whether someone only updated it to match the new baselanguage <--- this is always the case when you change the base language
12:21<@Alberth>switching back and forth doesn't change that
12:23-!-day [~day@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:24<frosch123> <- i mean this scenario
12:27<andythenorth>meh, small things are too small to draw
12:27<@Alberth>27 + chg.stamp = stamp <-- that marks the base string new, so translation is older
12:28-!-day [~day@] has joined #openttd
12:31<@Alberth>but my patch just fixes base language updating to a previous string without "override" and update of the translation wrt the last upload flag
12:33<@Alberth>at least the upload-language code doesn't select translation based on base text, so it's still wrong
12:35<@Alberth>so as I see it, either we fix the code to filter on proper base text strings everywhere, or just have a single stream where newest is best
12:42<frosch123>i think for normal usage there is no difference between them
12:42<frosch123>but for the unnormal usage, the latter option looks less magic to the user
12:43<frosch123>so, single stream?
12:43<@Alberth>I agree on that
12:43<@Alberth>unfortunately, I won't have much time until next week-ish

13:40<V453000>I think I just figured out how do I solve the trains getting longer on diagonals issue
13:40<V453000>basic answer is 2 models, more elaborate answer is a TRANSFORMER model =D
13:41-!-day [~day@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:42<frosch123>you cannot animate trains in turns
13:42<frosch123>so you cannot annimate the transfomers
13:45-!-day [~day@] has joined #openttd
13:50<V453000>the animation happens in the 8 views not as an actual animation
13:50<V453000>the transformation is subtle, nothing insanely major
13:51-!-iceshade [~iceshade@] has joined #openttd
13:51<V453000>point being, if it transforms as an animation based on movement, it is not scaled, and thus not distorted

14:12<andythenorth>so what, you rig every model, with 2 states?
14:12<andythenorth>and then change dimensions of some non-round components?
14:13<V453000>whatever works, very general solution
14:14<V453000>also I think I found a new solution how to do track junctions in 3D while defecating
14:14-!-mykoserocin [] has joined #openttd
14:14<V453000>because regardless how nice tracks you make, in junctions the overlays combined are going to kill it
14:15<V453000>solution could be to render the whole combined junction, and then cut pieces of it, and use those as sprites
14:15<V453000>hacky but nice
14:16<V453000>goes to the trello
14:17<@planetmaker>might work, but there are some bear traps with that
14:18<V453000>there is a shitload of traps, but they are just "is it done well enough"
14:18<@planetmaker>too many combinations so that I fear cutting it won't look well in many cases
14:18<@planetmaker>due to being combined in a way they were not meant to be combined
14:18<V453000>ah that
14:18<V453000>if you have them overlap then it is no issue
14:19<V453000>the overlapping just isnt visible because the two parts are the same there
14:19<V453000>PURR kind of does that
14:19<@planetmaker>the T-junctions, they're entirely made from overlayes, whether it's just a branch-off or a triangle
14:19<V453000>and the junctions look really sophisticated
14:19<@planetmaker>the X iirc is a separate sprite
14:20<@planetmaker>but when it comes to adding more to the X then it again adds the single sprites
14:21<V453000>you would just create the single sprites the same way, but you start from the junction obviously
14:21<alluke>i wanna run, chase the moon and sun
14:21<V453000>of course it is not really doable for normal rails
14:21<alluke>whats the point of having multicolored rails
14:21<V453000>PURR style tracks with one track in the middle, work nicely
14:22<V453000>alluke: orientation, making it nice, and some trains even react to them performance-wise, which is not only fun but also allows for some conditional order magic that you cannot do with anything else
14:27<Sylf>I tried to do that conditional magic with bridge speed limit, but didn't work
14:27<Sylf>I was bummed
14:28<V453000>nice idea
14:28<V453000>I am fairly sure I actually tried that as well at some point in the past

15:11<alluke>it just sounds wrong
15:11<V453000>farms can produce things like cheese or fruit at the spot?
15:11<V453000>in openttd terms it is uncommon, but generally I dont see why not
15:11<alluke>isnt there any factory that could process it
15:11<alluke>fruits not in arctic
15:11<alluke>cheese maybe
15:12<andythenorth>what is goal of basic economies?
15:13<alluke>replace default ones without being too complicated
15:13<alluke>or small maps that dont have space for full firs
15:13<@Rubidium>most dairy farms won't make any end-user products, but some do... so maybe a random chance that the dairy farm delivers "goods" instead of "milk"?
15:13<V453000>yeah more random cargoes for industrie
15:14<V453000>looks perfectly reasonable for the waste yard or however it is called :P
15:14<@Rubidium>or... if the production goes over X, then it will go from goods to milk
15:14<alluke>potatoes sounds the best variant tho
15:14<V453000>that is a lot more WTF, I like it
