04:23*andythenorth wonders if 'minerals' is a dumb cargo
04:23<dihedral>hej hej
04:24<dihedral>andythenorth: make a redbull factory which requires "wings" :-P
04:24<andythenorth>ha ha
04:24<andythenorth>there are so many under-used cargo ideas :)
04:24<dihedral>then you have a chickenfarm ....
04:24<@planetmaker>moin
04:24<dihedral>hello pm

06:13<argoneus>good morning train friends
06:15<V453000>fuck is up
06:16<argoneus>nice
06:16<argoneus>does anyone here have any experience with AI?
06:16<argoneus>specifically RTS AI
06:18<V453000>yeah in my experience OpenTTD's AI builds nice railways
06:20<argoneus>y-yeah

06:54<Flygon>I wonder if an AI script can be made
06:54<Flygon>To found towns, form the roads
06:54<Flygon>And separate AIs controlling separate companies to build the railways
06:54<Flygon>And effectively create a recreation of Australia's railway system from inception (early 1850s)
06:54<andythenorth>pikka's Civic AI builds roads
06:54<Flygon>Along with the towns founded
06:55<Flygon>Can the AI script found towns?
06:55<Eddi|zuHause>found towns is generally rather a GameScript task
06:56<Eddi|zuHause>seing as it is not limited by money and stuff
06:56<Eddi|zuHause>but yes, most of the things needed for that should be there.

06:57<V453000>XD good guy AI automatically funding industries and towns near player's actions, effectively blocking them XD
06:58<Eddi|zuHause>except for people switching companies at stations, that needs infrastructure sharing, and that has... issues
07:18<andythenorth>I dunno, in this West African economy, exporting Iron Ore seems boring somehow
07:19<andythenorth>and switching to bauxite doesn't help
07:23-!-Stachel-Gewitter [~42@v22013111875415224.yourvserver.net] has left #openttd [Leaving]
07:25<andythenorth>could do cobalt, but it tends to come from copper mines, already got copper
07:27<V453000>changing the name does not really change anything
07:27<V453000>you could call it monkey shit
07:27<andythenorth>yeah
07:27<andythenorth>it makes no difference to gameplay
07:27<V453000>as I once said :P draw a scheme, make system
07:28<andythenorth>nah
07:28<V453000>earn infinite $$$ was the final step I believe

08:10<leolrrj>eaew
08:11<leolrrj>morning
08:11<V453000>hi there
08:12<leolrrj>could you suggest me how to start? I did the beginning guide in game but I'm still bit confused...
08:13<leolrrj>I never played transport tycoon before too
08:13<argoneus>leolrrj: what are you confused about my friend?
08:13<argoneus>also welcome
08:13<leolrrj>I wanna understand the game modes...
08:13<argoneus>modes?
08:13<argoneus>you mean the biomes?
08:14<leolrrj>is there a competitive mode? against other companies?
08:14<argoneus>the game by default is in "competitive mode"
08:14<leolrrj>or it's like a sandbox game?
08:14<argoneus>you can either join multiplayer servers or add AI companies to your game
08:14<argoneus>or you can choose to play solo and make the best company
08:15<argoneus>there are also MP servers with custom gamescripts
08:15<argoneus>which is like "get the most population in 3 hours"
08:15<argoneus>that's competitive as well
08:15<leolrrj>hmm cool
08:15<argoneus>just explore the mp servers if you want to try these out
08:15<argoneus>if you want to sandbox or play against AI that's fine too
08:15<leolrrj>let me try it out
08:16<leolrrj>but I'm feel to weak yet lol
08:16<leolrrj>I cannot make profits
08:16<argoneus>money is rarely a problem in this game
08:16<leolrrj>I'm starting by creating bus and bus stations on cities
08:16<argoneus>buses are bad
08:16<leolrrj>and I think it's not profitable
08:16<argoneus>wel, bad
08:16<argoneus>buses are a long-term investment
08:16<argoneus>they grow cities rapidly
08:17<argoneus>if you want to make money you use trains
08:17<V453000>trains are the answer leolrrj
08:17<argoneus>or airports
08:17<V453000>just connect things which are as far away from each other as possible, and you get a lot of profit
08:17<V453000>of course as long as possible is within some bounds of feasibility for you :)
08:17<leolrrj>I will connect to a server and try that strategy then
08:17<V453000>but the more distant you transport, the better
08:17<argoneus>well
08:17<leolrrj>should I start by coals
08:17<leolrrj>?
08:17<argoneus>not necessarily
08:17<V453000>yes coal is great
08:18<argoneus>if your train is slow then you might end up making less
08:18<V453000>because coal drops its value over time very little
08:18<Wolf01>everything is profitable, you must only understand how to do it well, I often start with ships and have a profitable route in 1-2 years
08:18<argoneus>leolrrj: early game you want to use either oil or coal
08:18<argoneus>the problem with oil is it only drops
08:18<V453000>argoneus: that train would have to be super slow or carry super volatile cargo
08:18<argoneus>coal is the top probably
08:18<argoneus>in vanilla
08:18<argoneus>I wish oil was viable
08:18<argoneus>the production of oil drops so fast
08:19<argoneus>V453000: i suppose you're right
08:19<argoneus>generally longer is better i guess
08:19<argoneus>the distance is measured in air-distance, right
08:19<argoneus>not how long the train has travelled
08:20<argoneus>that'd make no sense
08:20<leolrrj>should I place my HQ before I start to make trains?
08:21<argoneus>not needed
08:21<V453000>manhattan distance I believe
08:21<V453000>X+Y
08:21<V453000>between station signs of source and destination
08:22<argoneus>oh, right

08:22<argoneus>ofc
08:22<argoneus>leolrrj: your HQ doesn't really do anything
08:22<argoneus>afaik it only accepts mail/goods/passengers later on
08:22<argoneus>if it gives a bonus it's very minor
08:23<V453000>no bonus anywhere
08:23<V453000>only accepts stuff
08:23<V453000>only interesting part about HQ is that it costs like 1% of the money you have or something
08:23<V453000>so if you build it later on, you pay more for it :)
08:25<andythenorth>manganese?
08:25<V453000>anus?
08:27<argoneus>ANUS?
08:27<andythenorth>I don't think that's the abbreviation
08:28<argoneus>V453000: do you factorio full time these days?
08:28<argoneus>or do you do multiple contracts or something
08:28<V453000>factorio only
08:28<argoneus>I recall you saying you were doing 3d graphics in some random non-prague city
08:29<argoneus>so you quit that?
08:29<V453000>yes
08:29<argoneus>did you move or do you work remotely?
08:29<V453000>I travel two times a week to Prague, for 2 days per trip

08:29<V453000>but I am moving to Prague in about 2 months from now
08:29<argoneus>oh
08:29<argoneus>so you have an apartment here or something?
08:29<argoneus>also nice
08:30<argoneus>prague the city of dreams))
08:30<V453000>yes my father has a flat here, so I can stay over night
08:30<argoneus>oh nice
08:30<argoneus>seems pretty comfy
08:30*andythenorth did Prague, tourism style
08:30<V453000>but we have a baby coming any day now with my wife, so we are looking forward to move to Prague for a more proper setup :)
08:30<argoneus>wait you have a waifu?
08:30<argoneus>I thought you were solo
08:31<argoneus>fuuck
08:31<argoneus>living the life
08:31<andythenorth>V453000 I thought you were sticking to animals :o
08:31<V453000>andythenorth: tourism style = beer n bitches?
08:31<argoneus>andythenorth: oh no
08:31<V453000>xd
08:31<argoneus>YETI gone wild
08:31<andythenorth>V453000 is the most responsible person in this channel these days
08:31<argoneus>thanks for that image
08:31<V453000>yeah speaking of animals my pet monster snail died like 1 week before christmas
08:31<V453000>=(
08:31<argoneus>pet monster snail?
08:32<V453000>roasted itself on the heating mat ...
08:32<argoneus>did you eat it
08:32<V453000>I had a giant african snail in terrarium
08:32<V453000>NO :D
08:32<argoneus>I've heard of people getting all sorts of pets
08:32<argoneus>even rats or ferrets or snakes
08:32<argoneus>but
08:32<argoneus>never heard of anyone getting a snail
08:32<V453000>actually if you think about it a snail is extremely good as a pet
08:33<argoneus>you can't train it to fetch
08:33<argoneus>also don't they spread that slimy goo stuff?
08:33<Eddi|zuHause>you can't train a cat to fetch either.
08:33<V453000>it is quiet, does not stink, you just feed it once a day and give it water, it is cheap
08:33<V453000>you can pat it, put it on your hand, shower it, ...
08:33<argoneus>Eddi|zuHause cats also aren't pets
08:33<argoneus>you are their pet
08:34<V453000>cats are great, if one day I have a house I will buy a cat ... only issue is that wife is a parrot/other birds person, and cat does not seem very compatible
08:34<Eddi|zuHause>in sovcat russia?
08:34<V453000>sovcat russia XD
08:34<argoneus>V453000: do a compromise and get a bat
08:34<argoneus>it's like a flying cat
08:35<debdog>rather a flying mouse
08:35<Eddi|zuHause>bats are more like flying mice
08:35<argoneus>don't ruin it for me:(
08:35<argoneus>I can't think of anything else that looks like a cat but flies
08:35<Eddi|zuHause>that's what they are called in a lot of languages
08:35<V453000>no thanks, bats do not sound too nice
08:35<andythenorth>hmm
08:35<andythenorth>also
08:36<andythenorth>Need Moar Cargos
08:36<argoneus>V453000: what's wrong with parrots
08:36<V453000>nothing, cats kind of try to eat them though
08:36<argoneus>no i mean
08:36<argoneus>don't get a cat
08:36<argoneus>get a doge
08:36<V453000>I hate dogs beyond anything
08:36<argoneus>doges are friends with whoever you make them be friends
08:37<argoneus>OH i know
08:37<argoneus>get a bunny
08:37<argoneus>or was it rabbit
08:37<argoneus>whichever is the domestic one
08:37<V453000>no doges are fucking retards who stink, require permanent attention and enslave you completely
08:37<V453000>and you have to go OUTSIDE with them
08:37<V453000>WTF is that
08:37<argoneus>oh shit dude
08:37<argoneus>dogs are nice if you have a garden I guess
08:38<argoneus>in a flat it probably sucks
08:38<V453000>no dogs are not nice period
08:38<Wolf01><argoneus> I can't think of anything else that looks like a cat but flies <- owl?
08:38<argoneus>OH Wolf01 you a genius
08:38<argoneus>V453000: get an owl
08:38<argoneus>they look cool as fuck
08:38<V453000>owls are fucking amazing, yes we might get one some day
08:39<V453000>but probably a big parrot first
08:39<V453000>kids sound like a good pet too
08:39<Wolf01>here you need a special licence to have birds of prey of any kind :(
08:39<argoneus>V453000: when is your babby due?
08:40<argoneus>I mean your wife's
08:40<V453000>argoneus: last friday :D
08:40<argoneus>you said it's coming any day
08:40<argoneus>oh, delay?

10:24<argoneus>take a loan
10:24<argoneus>at least your bank isn't negative
10:25<V453000>today it probably is
10:25<andythenorth>also it is possible to code / draw with a baby in one of these http://www.ergobaby.co.uk/baby-carriers-original-360-black-camel.html
10:25<argoneus>me at midnight: I should go to bed soon
10:25<andythenorth>but not to take things out of the oven
10:25<V453000>but bought coffee and some caffeine+taurin+stevia chewing gum
10:25<argoneus>me at 0:05: what's this article/video/game
10:25<argoneus>me at 5: fuck
10:25<andythenorth>also BT headphones
10:26<V453000>we got a old-school piece of cloth for carrying babiez
10:26<V453000>am thinking the same thing, will I be able to work with it on :D
10:26<argoneus>V453000: you mean the thing where you suffocate them on your tits?
10:26<V453000>one way to find out
10:26<V453000>yes argoneus
10:26<argoneus>it can be dangerous if you are careless
10:26<argoneus>which you aren't so it's fine
10:27<V453000>except there are many various ways how to tie it, and the babies seem to be rather alive mostly
10:27<argoneus>I know this because I've never had a baby only read internet discussions
10:27<V453000>.
10:27<V453000>me too, lets argue
10:27*andythenorth will stay out
10:28<argoneus>V453000 how old were you btw?
10:28<argoneus>I thought you were like 22
10:28<V453000>13
10:28<argoneus>that's an early age to have babies
10:28<V453000>fuck it we thought
10:29<argoneus>fuck it indeed
10:29<V453000>babies are swag #yolo
10:29<V453000>nah I am 25
10:29<argoneus>fuuck
10:29<argoneus>I tried to remember if I was 20 or 21
10:29<argoneus>I always thought people were retarded when they don't know their age

10:30<@Alberth>hi hi
10:30<argoneus>hi Alberth
10:30<V453000>HELO
10:30<argoneus>Alberth do you think software engineering is pointless and why yes?
10:31<@Alberth>hmm, you're asking me whether my job is pointless?
10:31<V453000>XD
10:31<V453000>the fuck is it anyway
10:31<V453000>?
10:31<argoneus>Alberth: I mean the theoretical software engineering
10:31<@Alberth>you're not expecting an unbiased answer I hope :p
10:31<argoneus>with all the diagrams and processes
10:32<argoneus>I have to learn it for an exam and I can't say I've ever seen anyone mention any of those buzzwords or use them
10:32<andythenorth>you have to learn it
10:32<argoneus>and when I worked the most software engineery things we did were scrums and code reviews
10:32<andythenorth>so you can defend yourself against consultants
10:32<argoneus>which is common sense
10:32<andythenorth>common sense is not commonly distributed
10:32<V453000>haha
10:32<V453000>good one
10:33<argoneus>andythenorth: so software engineering has nothing to do with programming and more how to get customers?
10:33<andythenorth>you also have to learn software engineering to defend yourself against people who have done the course and use it as a weapon
10:33<andythenorth>"of course, the proper way to do xyz is …."
10:33<andythenorth>fuck off
10:34<argoneus>I have to learn a bunch of things like http://puu.sh/mAkrQ/70dc0d95e2.jpg
10:34<@Alberth>argoneus: I think you sbhould at least know what people mean when they mention buzzwords like scrum
10:34<argoneus>Alberth: what do you do as a job?
10:34<dihedral>argoneus: if you have to learn it, you should know why :-P
10:34<argoneus>I didn't mean to insult you or anything
10:34<V453000>ASSESS NEEDS XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
10:35<V453000>anus hereby requires:...
10:35<argoneus>I just find most of the buzzwordy stuff useless as a programmer
10:35<andythenorth>Alberth: is a consultant
10:35<dihedral>heh
10:35<@Alberth>argoneus: that diagram is so general, you can fit it on scrum and loads of other methodologies
10:35<V453000>I like ass needs
10:35*andythenorth had better come back later
10:35<andythenorth>this page won't get validated on its own
10:35-!-andythenorth [~Andy@194.168.185.226] has left #openttd []
10:35<argoneus>Alberth: so you meet with customers, figure out what they want, figure out what you can do and how to do it, and put it in a form you can both understand and that isn't ambiguous?
10:35<dihedral>that diagramm shows general porject management :-P
10:35<argoneus>and that's all?
10:36<argoneus>there's a bunch more things like "V model"
10:36<argoneus>which literally just says "code stuff and test it" except it's a diagram
10:36<V453000>I aint no fuken model
10:36<dihedral>you probably aint pretty enough V
10:36<@Alberth>argoneus: in the end it's all "code this problem
10:36<V453000>=(
10:37<dihedral>you could start a forums contest
10:37<dihedral>ottd top model
10:37<dihedral>:-D
10:37<argoneus>Alberth: I just don't like the idea of having a general approach to solving problems
10:37<argoneus>every problem is unique, you can't just say "ok now step 5"
10:37<@Alberth>argoneus: right, and scrum isn't general?
10:37<dihedral>argoneus: why can you not
10:37<argoneus>scrum is nothing special, it's just "let's meet every day and figure out what we're gonna do"
10:37<@Alberth>argoneus: these models are high level view, of course they are general
10:38<argoneus>well
10:38<dihedral>scrum is more than that
10:38<argoneus>all the software engineery stuff I have read about seems to imply you're doing object oriented programming
10:38<argoneus>it defines the problem and solution in OO
10:38<@Alberth>and the high level and real practice don't touch much, but it's useful to know the big global picture
10:39<argoneus>Alberth: what kind of software does your company make?
10:39<@Alberth>argoneus: you should to more realtime control in C :)
10:39<argoneus>also I assume being a consultant is stressing
10:39<@Alberth>ha :)
10:39<argoneus>realtime control?
10:39<@Alberth>embedded systems
10:39<argoneus>see, embedded systems is one place where OO just breaks down
10:40<argoneus>it doesn't work like that
10:40<@Alberth>my "customers" are researchers of the university where I also work
10:40<argoneus>can you still tailor software engineering buzzwords to it?
10:40<argoneus>or functional programming
10:40<dihedral>Alberth: what university?
10:41<@Alberth>of course you can, there sure are design methodologies that work for real time control, eg all the methodologies that existed before OO got invented
10:41<@Alberth>dihedral: Eindhoven University of Technology
10:41<@Alberth>where I build complilers and simulators for research purposes
10:42<argoneus>isn't that computer science?
10:43<@Alberth>it's pretty close to it
10:44<@Alberth>but the difference is that my code works also for real industrial cases, with proper documentation and so on
10:44<@Alberth>while research is typically building much more experimental code
10:45<@Alberth>ie just a proof of concept
10:46<argoneus>sounds fun

13:52<tt_johannes>hello
13:52<tt_johannes>is there a struct in the source which contains everything that's written into a savegame?
13:54<frosch123>it's all in the saveload folder
13:54<frosch123>but it's not a single struct, because it handles different versions of savegames
13:55<tt_johannes>:-/
13:56<tt_johannes>frosch123: for example, how can I read all train station names from a savegame? can you please give me a hint?
13:57<frosch123>either patch openttd, or write a gamescript
13:57<frosch123>don't even try to write a independent savegame loader
13:57<tt_johannes>of course
13:58<tt_johannes>so if I just wanted to write a simple script using a part of openttd as library, and that script should just print all station names, nothing more...
13:58<tt_johannes>what C++ function would I need to call?

14:04<argoneus>is the savegame format really that complex?
14:04<frosch123>it is not self-descriptive
14:04<@Alberth>if you want to load all game versions, yes
14:04<frosch123>so you need to adjust the reader for every epsilon change
14:05<tt_johannes>ahh, I found SaveOrLoad...

14:06<frosch123>the other one invokes a frontend driver, which in your case may print the stuff and then exitr

14:08<tt_johannes>frosch123: what do you mean by "in your case"? Do you mean I could write a script that is being executed due to -v null?
14:11<frosch123>tt_johannes: add a file "src/video/johannes_v.cpp" using null_v.cpp as template, register it as "video driver" and then add your code to MainLoop() instead of the stuff from null_v.cpp
14:13<tt_johannes>frosch123: would you consider this as a clean, good design, or is this a hackish way to abuse the video driver thing?
14:13<frosch123>i would consider it the easiest way to insert custom code instead of the normal game loop
14:14<leolrrj>for passenger trains what type of load cargo should I choose? full load any cargo?
14:15<@Alberth>usually doesn't matter, you get more passengers than you can manage

14:19<leolrrj>frosch123: what means timetables wait of 5 days?
14:19<leolrrj>how can I set it?
14:19<frosch123>https://wiki.openttd.org/Timetable <- see there
14:19<frosch123>only set a time for "loading", not for "travel"
14:23<tt_johannes>frosch123: the savegames are loaded simply as chunks, in SlLoadChunks() ?
14:25<frosch123> { 'STNN', Save_STNN, Load_STNN, Ptrs_STNN, NULL, CH_ARRAY }, <- that line at the bottom of station_sl.cpp means that the "STNN" chunk is read by Load_STNN

14:30-!-Mazur [~mazur@5ED07F22.cm-7-1b.dynamic.ziggo.nl] has joined #openttd
14:32<argoneus>is there a reason savegames aren't simple structs?
14:35<__ln__>because the representation of a struct in a file is platform-dependent.
14:39<frosch123>the art of giving an absurd answer to an absurd question :)
14:39<@Alberth>you would need a different struct for each savegame version, which are 194 currently
14:40<@Alberth>probably there are few more than that
14:40<V453000>XD +1 frosch123
14:46<tt_johannes>so all the information about stations is stored in globals?
14:46<tt_johannes>in this case, the StationList variable?
14:46<frosch123>it's stored in the Station pool
14:47<frosch123>StationList sounds like a temporary thing
14:47<argoneus>why is it an absurd question? o.o
14:47<tt_johannes>the best thing I can see is that station_sl stores all the stuff in _station_desc
14:47<argoneus>how much data is there in a savegame

14:49<frosch123>argoneus: the correct question would have been: why is the savegame not stored in a self-describing format
14:50<tt_johannes>frosch123: The loader only stores them in _station_desc... Where is the data from _station_desc transmitted to _station_pool?
14:51<frosch123>tt_johannes: _station_desc is a static constant
14:51<frosch123>SlObject(bst, waypoint ? _waypoint_desc : _station_desc); <- the data is stored in "bst"
14:52<tt_johannes>frosch123: but bst looses scope... so where is the pointer remembered?
14:53<frosch123>see the "index" parameter to the new operator
14:53<frosch123>that index is the station-id
14:53<argoneus>frosch123: well you can write and read structs trivially if you know their size
14:53<argoneus>assuming they don't change much between patches
14:53<frosch123>you can access it via the station pool, as written above
14:54<frosch123>argoneus: you can jump into water easily, assuming you can swim
14:54<frosch123>meh
14:54<frosch123>i still have trouble with giving absurd answers
14:55<argoneus>frosch123: what exactly changes in a savegame between patches?
14:55<argoneus>if you add a new feature or fix a bug a savefile shouldn't care about that
14:55<tt_johannes>oh oh, I recall things like "new (x) y;", this was one of the complicated things of C++...
14:55<argoneus>unless it's save-breaking somehow

14:56<frosch123>ignore the word "new" in that line
14:56<frosch123>and just assume it gives you station "index"
14:57<tt_johannes>frosch123: I must get it ... :P
14:57<frosch123>tt_johannes: do you know "emplace" in c++11 containers?
14:57<tt_johannes>where is that new thing described? how do I google that?
14:57<tt_johannes>frosch123: yes
14:58<frosch123>ok, openttd twists "new" in some dirty tricks to work like emplace
14:58<frosch123>because ottd is older than c++11
14:58<frosch123>"new (index) Station()" returns "_station_pool[index]", and initialises it
14:59<tt_johannes>it says that "char* p = new('*') char[6];" creates an array of six chars, each initialized with a * ?

15:02<tt_johannes>frosch123: ok, now I start getting that constructor thing .... :p
15:05<tt_johannes>ok, so all the data is stored in pools...
15:05<tt_johannes>now, what I actually wanted to do is making a graph of all the train lines....
15:06<argoneus>frosch123: it doesn't have to be a struct, but it doesn't look complicated
15:06<argoneus>just a unified format that's described somewhere...
15:07<tt_johannes>I guess that can only be done with using the "implicit" stations? That's the best way to guess what routes my trains are taking?
15:08<frosch123>yup
15:08<frosch123>FOR_ALL_STATIONS should give you the nodes

15:24<V453000>I don't think you are unable to make pron just because you can't draw
15:24<argoneus>or would that be similar to incest
15:24<andythenorth>I feel the conversation here has taken a dive
15:24<V453000>I think most of 3D shit comes from asia
15:24<argoneus>it's because you mentioned flash porn
15:24<V453000>so I wouldn't be surprised about anything
15:24<argoneus>V453000: the quality of it is crap though
15:24<argoneus>the devs and artists barely get paid anything and they have tight deadlines
15:25<V453000>can't say I am a large scale consumer of that. XD
15:25<argoneus>it doesn't sell much apparently
15:25<V453000>ok
15:25<argoneus>all I'm saying is
15:25<argoneus>if you decide to do 3d porn, don't expect to profit off it

15:25<argoneus>you can draw comics though
15:25<V453000>esp with some VR and devices and stuff
15:25<argoneus>oh yeah
15:26<argoneus>VR might boost the sales a lot
15:26<V453000>if the "gameplay" is good, ... :)
15:26<argoneus>a friend of mine would surely buy one if he had the money
15:26<V453000>see, $$$$
15:26<argoneus>V453000 will you get an oculus rift
15:27<V453000>no
15:27<argoneus>with your factoriodosh
15:27<argoneus>it only costs 800 euro
15:27<argoneus>;_;
15:28<V453000>I respect the technology, but I do not really like detaching myself from the reality completely. I like staring at a screen or whatever, but putting goggles with headphones on my head to be completely fucked and disconnected sounds to me like going way too far. And I would consider myself as far from a "normal person"
15:28<andythenorth>also it currently makes lots of people sick
15:28<V453000>haha
15:28<andythenorth>some people are susceptible, some are not
15:28<andythenorth>possibly depends how good your ears at balance
15:28<andythenorth>or something similar
15:28<argoneus>it's just motion sickness
15:28<argoneus>it's not VR sickness
15:28<V453000>yeah
15:29<V453000>which is another hm thing
15:29<andythenorth>it’s motion sickness, but eh, you’re not moving? o_O
15:29<andythenorth>so inverse motion sickness?
15:29<@planetmaker>ho ho :)
15:29<V453000>but if I had no wife and money to spare, I would probably buy it just to try the pron XD

15:30<V453000>even though I do not think it is perfectly fine to live with virtual/over-sexualized ideas either
15:30<V453000>but ye, 'tever
15:30<argoneus>well
15:30<argoneus>people have had fantasies since forever
15:30<V453000>of course
15:31<argoneus>and tbh
15:31<V453000>it's always about perception and how the individual handles it in their head
15:31<argoneus>I'd rather have sheltered neckbeards who get off to virtual girls than people who commit heinous crimes on the street

15:31<V453000>heh well, that is kind of obvious :P

15:32<argoneus>people have died of starvation playing world of warcraft
15:32<@Alberth>andythenorth: motion sickness is about discrepancies between what you see and movement that you feel. While a car is moving you are sitting still
15:32<argoneus>let alone if they immerse themselves fully
15:32<argoneus>it shouldn't be an issue with moderation though
15:32<andythenorth>Alberth…but your ears are moving
15:32<V453000>it is all very relative :)
15:32<andythenorth>in space
15:32<argoneus>I can't wait for someone to stop eating and die playing VR stuff and then they will have to shut down
15:32<andythenorth>but do you know?
15:32<andythenorth>if there’s no acceleration...
15:32<argoneus>>_>
15:33<V453000>argoneus: I am talking more about the psychological side of things rather than you would die because you do not do XYZ
15:33<andythenorth>argoneus: “I can’t wait for” :P
15:33<andythenorth>does not come across well in irc :P
15:33<@Alberth>in space there is also no reference point to see you're moving :p
15:33<argoneus>oops
15:33<andythenorth>“I wish someone would die"
15:33<argoneus>it was sarcasm
15:33<andythenorth>ha
15:33<argoneus>or however to call it
15:33<@Alberth>but yeah, you'd get sick too, I think
15:33<argoneus>but it's a common thing
15:33<argoneus>when someone shoots up a school they always blame videogames

16:11<@planetmaker>and every major patch has its own unique version incompatible with any official format
16:11<argoneus>a new savegame version every 18 days
16:11<argoneus>o.o
16:11<@planetmaker>as it adds something to the savegame, as it stores something additional
16:11<argoneus>that's.... wow
16:11<argoneus>I thought it was like every half a year or so
16:12<argoneus>seems like it'd be quicker to just download the source for the version you want, and make it save relevant info about the map to another file when it loads a map
16:12<frosch123>there were 50 version between 0.5.0 and 0.6.0
16:12<frosch123>compared to 6 between 1.4.0 and 1.5.0
16:13<frosch123>and 0 between 1.5.0 and 1.6.0 :p
16:13<argoneus>wait, does something like cargodist warrant a new savegame format?
16:13<argoneus>oh wait, every savegame has all the game settings stored on it
16:13<argoneus>oh my god
16:13<argoneus>okay
16:13<argoneus>putting all this into perspective
16:14<argoneus>"just put it in a struct" is probably ignorant :P
16:14<andythenorth>hmm
16:14<andythenorth>adding a manganese cargo, got a way to dig it up and export it
16:14<andythenorth>but no way to use process it into anything useful
16:14<andythenorth>Bad Feature?
16:15<frosch123>is manganee produced by the paper mill?
16:16<andythenorth>coincidentally not
16:18<V453000>wtf is manganese?

16:19<V453000>oh this shit
16:19<argoneus>mangan
16:19<frosch123>i think it is used in cheap tooth fillings
16:19<V453000>is actually called mangan in czech yeah XD
16:19<argoneus>"manga porn tapes"

16:38<andythenorth>hmm
16:39<andythenorth>maybe Steel Mill should accept manganese not scrap metal
16:39<andythenorth>or maybe there should be ’steel mill inputs yard'
16:39<andythenorth>which makes ‘steel mill supplies’ o_O
16:40<supermop>make iron first then make steel out of that?
16:40<andythenorth>what’s the chain?
16:41<argoneus>andythenorth: what about uranium
16:43<andythenorth>problem is boringly low production amounts
16:43<andythenorth>uranium, diamonds, gold, coltan, other rare earths
16:43<andythenorth>all low output
16:43<andythenorth>not a lot of challenge
16:44<argoneus>you can bring uranium to nuclear plants
16:44<argoneus>and then bring waste to the ocean
16:44<argoneus>and get paid for it
16:45<@Alberth>at 1 wagon every year?

16:46<argoneus>what's wrong with having ultra-rare resources :o
16:46<andythenorth>nothing, but it’s boring to transport
16:47<andythenorth>the game (as I play it) works best with 100t-1000t industry outputs
16:47<andythenorth>that creates enough traffic chaos to keep routing challenging
16:47<andythenorth>but isn’t wtf
16:49<argoneus>oh right
16:49<argoneus>the game should be fun
16:49<argoneus>I forgo
16:49<argoneus>t
16:49*andythenorth learns about steel alloys
16:56<andythenorth>hmm
16:56<andythenorth>maybe FIRS needs a total rethink
16:56<andythenorth>frosch123: 128 cargos?
16:56<andythenorth>o_O
16:57<andythenorth>9 input, 6 output per industry?
16:58<argoneus>andythenorth: might as well play factorio
16:59<andythenorth>does factorio have other metals added to steel for steel alloys?
16:59<argoneus>possibly with mods
16:59<argoneus>in vanilla you just burn iron ore into iron
16:59<argoneus>and then burn iron into steel
16:59<andythenorth>‘not realism'
16:59<argoneus>there are mods that make it complex af
