06:46<_dp_>Hi! What should I put in nml float to to get the dword value I want? Just divide it by 256?
06:52<Eddi|zuHause>you can use the nfo-unit like "1234 nfo" to give the integer directly
06:54<_dp_>oh, awesome)
06:54<_dp_>should probably be here then

07:31<andythenorth>how do I install nmlc?
07:31*andythenorth never understands
07:32<andythenorth>ah it’s bloody :)
07:32<andythenorth>docs know :P
07:35<andythenorth>lots of warnings
07:35<andythenorth>and it doesn’t work
07:37<andythenorth>pip is broken in python 3 also? :o
07:44<andythenorth>yay, the python distribution tools are all broken
07:44<andythenorth>they fail with syntax errors
07:45<andythenorth>looks like they broke backwards compatibility with python 3.2
07:46<Wolf01>I found that having all python versions installed is a good way to deal with these problems, you try all of them and when you find the one which works you make a script to run your script with the right version ;)
07:47<Wolf01>Now I don't use python anymore
07:47<andythenorth>world of pain
07:47<andythenorth>I just want to use nml from my nml checkout
07:48<andythenorth>but it’s impossible to do that
07:48<andythenorth>in any sensible way
07:48<andythenorth>only in stupid ways
07:48<andythenorth>patching the makefile works to give the exact path works, but that’s dumb and breaks coop jenkins
07:51<Wolf01>I'm uncertain to add events to my scene manager instead... like OnSceneActivated, OnSceneChange, OnSceneChanged :/ It will open more possibilities but also some abuse
07:59*andythenorth just copied the files from nml into site-packages
07:59<andythenorth>that is the ugliest solution I’ve ever seen

08:00<andythenorth>would I use setuptools? o_O
08:00<andythenorth>maybe I could call it ‘'

08:10-!-gelignite is "gelignite" on #openttd #openttdcoop.devzone
08:17<andythenorth>now I need a ‘pop byte’ string command :P )D
08:17<frosch123>andythenorth: also, symlinking nmlc to /usr/local/bin is the easiest solution
08:17<frosch123>hmm, so, should we make it a word instead then?
08:18<andythenorth>unfortunately, might need to?
08:18<frosch123>most things are words there :)
08:19<frosch123>andythenorth: just replace PopUnsignedByte with PopUnsignedWord in newgrf_text.cpp

09:05-!-lorran78 is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #openttd
09:06<lorran78>i have questions
09:08<lorran78>i saw that some grf
09:08<lorran78>has only *.py
09:08<lorran78>how can i compile it?
09:08<frosch123>py is python
09:08<lorran78>hum okay then i can't use nml program?
09:08<_dp_>I bet it generates nml if you run it)
09:08<frosch123>if there is also a Makefile, then it is still make
09:09<lorran78>oh okay i can use same cmd to compile nml but how can i modify?
09:09<lorran78>py is same as pnml?
09:09<frosch123>no, py is custom
09:10<frosch123>python is a programming language
09:10<lorran78>yes i know
09:10-!-welshdragon [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
09:10<frosch123>you won't learn that in 2 hours, if you are not already experienced with programming
09:11<lorran78>hum :( i only want to add "introduction_date" to vehicules like i've done in the opengfx+trains
09:11-!-welshdragon [] has joined #openttd
09:11-!-welshdragon is "Guest" on #tycoonexiles #tycoon #simsig #openttd
09:11<frosch123>as dp said, the python thing likely generates an nml file inbetween
09:12<frosch123>there are more than one program involved
09:12<lorran78>oh i forgot that in the grf there is a templates with pnml file normally i can found vehicules here?
09:12<lorran78>and all other files are py
09:13<frosch123>well, oil colours are harder to use than water colours
09:15<lorran78>oh it's not only pnml but a lot of pynml...
09:15<Eddi|zuHause>that's something completely different...
09:16<Eddi|zuHause>also, there's probably a table with vehicle data
09:17<frosch123> <- lorran78: there you can find an intro_date
09:18<frosch123>generally it helps if you have a computer that is suitable for development
09:18<frosch123>like a computer that can actuall search for something
09:21<lorran78>thx frosch123 for the example
09:30-!-andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
09:30-!-andythenorth is "Andy" on #openttd
09:43<lorran78>is there a way to set a higher number of industries per town?
09:44<lorran78>like more than one bank or other?
09:45<frosch123>there is a setting in ottd, which restricts industries to one per town
09:45<frosch123>maybe you have that enabled
09:47-!-sim-al2 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:50<_dp_>Banks also have 15 tiles min distance between them, so you'll need pretty big town to get two banks
09:57<MonkeyDrone>frosch123: is it possible to modify the source code for server-side and recompile to change the autoclean companies max limit of 255?
09:58<lorran78>oh i see i check for this settings
09:58<frosch123>that setting sounds like it is not part of savegames, so it should be safe to change
09:59<MonkeyDrone>there is under advanced settings 'multiple industries per town' available
10:03<lorran78>thx MonkeyDrone :)
10:03<MonkeyDrone>welcome :D

10:39<Eddi|zuHause>is that me or does steam have connectivity problems?
10:40<andythenorth>web store is very slow to respond
10:41<andythenorth>hmm, will I pull the tail on the python?
10:41<andythenorth>or leave it alone?
10:41<__ln__>i'll close my steam client so there'll be bandwidth left for you people
10:42*andythenorth wonders how coop jenkins gets a new nml
10:51<andythenorth>seems it got one :P
10:58<andythenorth>frosch123: so how do we server game then? o_O
11:00<Wolf01> valve shut down steam ;)
11:10<frosch123>andythenorth: i guess we try to take over #openttdcoop.nightly
11:15<frosch123>problem with coop servers is that there are usally 12 outdated ways to start a server
11:15<andythenorth>ha yes :)
11:15<frosch123>well, i cloned nrt and compiled it
11:15<andythenorth>if we seriously want to play a game, I will patch Road Hog some more
11:15<frosch123>but no idea how the bot knows about it

11:21<frosch123>looks like i need to checkout stuff with a different user now :p
11:22<andythenorth>we are short of a planetmaker these days :)
11:22<andythenorth>he is missed
11:23<andythenorth>can I merge ottd trunk into NRT?
11:23<frosch123>oh my, how does a simple "su" even attach to an existing console?
11:23<andythenorth>it merged clean, but I didn’t push
11:23<frosch123>andythenorth: i just merged yesterday
11:23<frosch123>so i guess there is only one commit
11:23<frosch123>should be pretty safe :p
11:25<frosch123>sorry, i do not know how coop works :)
11:26<andythenorth>I don’t have good enough upstream to host at home
11:26<andythenorth>I will happily play a solo test game
11:26<andythenorth>or MP
11:26<andythenorth>don’t mind
11:26<frosch123>i guess it's SP then
11:29<andythenorth>I likely won’t have more than an hour uninterrupted in next few days :)
11:29<andythenorth>lots of time, but lots of interruptions
11:29<andythenorth>so MP probably a bit hit and miss
11:30<andythenorth>hmm overbuilding a HAUL bridge with tram causes an artefact
11:30<peter1139>people play ottd?
11:31<andythenorth>peter1139: ‘people’ is a strong word
11:31<andythenorth>hey look
11:31*andythenorth is now ‘older’
11:31<andythenorth>and ‘wiser'
11:34<peter1139>i'm just older
11:34<peter1139>been here 11 years?
11:34<peter1139>lost track
11:35<peter1139>shame i lost the ottd mojo
11:35<andythenorth>it’s because….
11:35<andythenorth>nah, dunno
11:35<andythenorth>dunno how I keep interested
11:35<andythenorth>I just do
11:36<peter1139>then again i used to use linux all the time
11:36<peter1139>now i windows it at home
11:37*andythenorth used to cycle everywhere
11:37<andythenorth>now I have a Mondeo
11:37<peter1139>i used to drive everywhere
11:37<peter1139>now i cycle
11:38<andythenorth>ok, the world is in balance then :P

11:39-!-ZirconiumX is "realname" on #openttd
11:40<andythenorth>it’s probably the lack of multi-stop docks that lost your mojo
11:45<andythenorth>arbitrarily combinable, flat-or-sloped, multi-stop docks
12:13<Wolf01>I wonder who will help you to do that ;)
12:15<andythenorth>someone who likes hard problems :P
12:15<Wolf01>Ok, not me, I'm just curious :P
12:17*andythenorth still trying to code vehicles that are cross-compatible between multiple roadtypes
12:18<andythenorth>without success :D
12:20<Wolf01>Make all the roadtypes mutually compatible :P
12:24*andythenorth reverts :)
12:31<andythenorth>industry ‘efficiency’
12:31<andythenorth>what’s a less boring word?
12:32<frosch123>production ratio
12:33<andythenorth>‘production ratio: wasteful’
12:33<andythenorth>‘production ratio: good’
12:33<andythenorth>or something
12:33<andythenorth>‘production ratio: fricking awesome'
12:33<ZirconiumX>'production ratio: amazeballs'
12:33<andythenorth>I could just use the station ratings eh
12:34<andythenorth>‘appalling, mediocre, outstanding'
12:34<frosch123>"productivy" could also work
12:34<andythenorth>for extra hassle, some industries have 3 options, and some only have 2
12:34<andythenorth>‘Productivity’ is not bad
12:35<frosch123>colour them
12:35<frosch123>speed is blue, effiency is green, productivity is violet
12:35<andythenorth>rainbow coloured industry window :)
12:35<andythenorth>like ECS
12:35<frosch123>V would approve those colour :p
12:35<andythenorth>complete control over the industry window - a pony too far? o_O
12:36<frosch123>yeah, no gs or newgrf gui
12:36<andythenorth>‘Cargo waiting to be processed’ is useless :)
12:36<frosch123>we need a html gui for that
12:46<Wolf01><andythenorth> I could just use the station ratings eh <andythenorth> ‘appalling, mediocre, outstanding' <- that would be a great idea

13:26-!-Wormnest [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:27<andythenorth>might work
13:27<andythenorth>but there are industries which don’t combine
13:27<andythenorth>and there are industries which combine MNSP + [any of 2 cargos]
13:27<frosch123>more colors :)
13:28<andythenorth>I’ll have to have a parameter for ‘minimalist | frosch-ist’ :)
13:28*andythenorth tests
13:29<andythenorth>do we have a ✔︎ character? :P
13:30<frosch123>{CHECK} or so
13:30<frosch123>but it is bad because it does not work with fonts
13:30<frosch123>maybe we even forbid it in eints
13:30*andythenorth discards that idea
13:34<frosch123>too much colour :p
13:35<frosch123>i mostly meant the "yellow" as for the waiting amounts
13:35<frosch123>the "red" is also okay, but the white and green is too much
13:38<andythenorth>isn’t it :)
13:38<andythenorth>I think the red has contrast problems
13:39<frosch123>we have no colorblind mode
13:40<frosch123>and if you are not colorblind, then the text does not matter, "something red" is enough
13:41<andythenorth>lose the white in favour of yellow?
13:42<frosch123>imho all static text in black, all dynamic text in yellow
13:43<supermop>anyone else always read nu tracks as 'nut racks'?
13:43<supermop>frosch123: +1 to standards
13:44<andythenorth>supermop: yes
13:47<frosch123>i usually read it as "why?"
13:49<andythenorth>all-yellow is a bit blah
13:50<andythenorth>ha, default black holes / secondaries have ‘Requires: [cargos]’
13:50<Wolf01>I wonder if is possible to disable the "cargo waiting to br processed" part if not used
13:51<frosch123>i think we already have a spec for that
13:51<andythenorth>it’s in your grf v9 spec or so

13:51<andythenorth>oh its wiki :)
13:52<frosch123>dev is only quak iirc
13:52<andythenorth>I found that
13:55<andythenorth>it’s only a cb?
13:55*andythenorth coded a cb once
13:57<frosch123>it's modifying an existing cb
13:57<frosch123>but with various question marks
13:57<andythenorth>figures :)
14:12<andythenorth>or photoshop :P
14:13<frosch123>what does that mean?
14:13<frosch123>that coal is supplied, while iore and scrp are not?
14:14<andythenorth>does it rely too much on implication?
14:15<frosch123>i would expect some "(missing)"
14:15<andythenorth>me too
14:15<andythenorth>but “Requires: Coal (Required)"
14:15<andythenorth>looked weird, and I couldn’t think of a better word

14:18<andythenorth>it’s a very bad idea :D
14:18<andythenorth>but o/c, it’s subtypes :D
14:21<frosch123> <- hmm, it was only a testgrf :p
14:21<andythenorth>ha ha
14:21<frosch123>but you could put the "required", "present" text there
14:21<andythenorth>I considered if I could make that work
14:21<andythenorth>but ‘waiting to be processed’ makes it read strangely
14:22<frosch123>oh, ecs and pbi use it to display maximum stockpile limits
14:23<andythenorth>ach, fair
14:24<frosch123>no idea how it starts with "6" in a new game
14:24<frosch123>also no idea why an animal farm needs fish
14:25<andythenorth>feed the pigs
14:25<andythenorth>bacon comes from sardines
14:25<andythenorth>UK is skipping the middle man
14:25<andythenorth>or middle pig :P
14:31<frosch123>dinosaurs are more healthy to eas
14:35<andythenorth>frosch123: is NRT done ‘enough'?
14:35<andythenorth>there are about 4 existing forum threads it could be released into :P
14:35<andythenorth>or a new one
14:35<frosch123>i wanted to finish convertroad, but didn't :p
14:36<frosch123>anyway, it all depends on the grf :)
14:36<andythenorth>convert road isn’t essential
14:36<frosch123>i wouldn't dump it into someone else's thread
14:37<frosch123>though it would be funny if it was a suggestion thread, because noone would find/read it then
14:37<andythenorth>my thoughts exactly :P
14:37<andythenorth>a cryptic link
14:37<andythenorth>that has HAUL, ROAD, RAIL, ELRL
14:37<andythenorth>the multi-mode vehicles didn’t work, it needs a spec extension, or I’m doing it wrong
14:38<frosch123>it's funny, i thought the train guys had "elrail or 3rdrail" vehicles
14:38<frosch123>but apparently noe
14:39<frosch123>i never followed railtypes that much, it was mostly realism bullshit
14:39<andythenorth>isn’t it
14:40<andythenorth>I will just have to build extra roads to my mines
14:40<andythenorth>or…use trams
14:40<andythenorth>I can’t run buses on my haul road…but I can run trams
14:41<andythenorth>is there any wisdom in allowing a roadtype to forbid tram and vice-versa?
14:41<andythenorth>or is that BAD FEATURE?
14:41<frosch123>restrictions do not add much
14:41<frosch123>and you can break about anything with "over-head tram" over "canal road"
14:43<frosch123>apparently that is the correct term
14:44<V453000>universal rail be good :P
14:44<frosch123>V453000: make a belt road type
14:44<V453000>can't animate it
14:45<V453000>& it would look inevitably shit due to isometric & diagonal tiles
14:45<frosch123>andythenorth: looks good
14:46<andythenorth>now just need to lose ‘cargo waiting to be processed’ block :D
14:46*andythenorth could patch it to be turned on or off by a property, instead of by using production cb
14:47<andythenorth>probably 10 kinds of problem with that idea

15:00<_dp_>hm, may be I can trick the game into thinking it has already been offered
15:01<frosch123>hmm, yeah, you could prepare a savegame, where preview_asked is preset for all companies
15:01<frosch123>and engines
15:01<frosch123>hmm, no you can't
15:02<frosch123>you could try to set ENGINE_EXCLUSIVE_PREVIEW in advance
15:05<_dp_>or set preview_company to a server one
15:06<frosch123>no, that one is set on each client in EnginesMonthlyLoop()
15:08<_dp_>yeah, looks like I'll have to set ENGINE_EXCLUSIVE_PREVIEW anyway
15:08<_dp_>well, that's fine

15:51<andythenorth>frosch123: your proposal for cb37 - empty strings can be returned using 0800 - 0CFF? But ‘Cargo waiting to be processed’ is not dropped?
15:53<frosch123>the idea is that only some of the lines would be replaced
15:53<frosch123>so, in general that " to be processed" text would stay, but maybe we can find a more general text
15:54*andythenorth tries to think of one
15:55-!-welshdragon [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
15:55<frosch123>"Incoming cargo", "Input cargo", ...
15:56<andythenorth>“Accepted cargo:”

15:59<andythenorth>Allow substitution of default with a string in a register?
15:59<Wolf01>Accepted cargo and required is a bit redundant
16:00<frosch123>"Processed cargo"?
16:00<Wolf01>It needs something like "(0% transported)" in the accepted part
16:00<andythenorth>“Processed cargo” sounds like output imo
16:01<andythenorth>“Requires: Coal (100t waiting to be processed)”
16:01<andythenorth>Wolf01: ^ you mean that?
16:04<Wolf01>And "(100t waiting to be processed)" in other cases
16:05<andythenorth>I think the “0 litres of” is redundant at the front

16:10<andythenorth>it’s not great for looking at screenshots
16:11<Wolf01>Wasn't lynx with image support on terminal?
16:12<andythenorth>so eh, what shall I do with this FIRS window text?
16:12<andythenorth>I have made a bit of a mess of FIRS, and not in a branch

16:34<andythenorth>seems we don’t know what we want from cb 37 / 3A, so best leave it alone?
16:36<andythenorth>what’s the efficiency of an industry that hasn’t produced recently?
16:37<supermop>work stoppage
16:38<Wolf01>Oh, it's friday

16:39<andythenorth>‘shut down’
16:39<Wolf01>3 days ago
16:39<andythenorth>nah, sounds like it’s closing
16:39<andythenorth>‘not producing'
16:40<frosch123>maybe "alien abduction" is more ttdish
16:40<supermop>'industry owner forgot to secure a source of materials before spending hundreds of millions on building a new factory in the middle of nowhere'
16:40<andythenorth>‘stopped cold'
16:40<supermop>andythenorth: idle
16:41<andythenorth>‘deliver cargo you useless tycoon'
16:41<supermop>is what id typically call a production line that is tooled up but not working
16:41<andythenorth>‘Efficiency: idle’ isn’t strict English eh?
16:41<supermop>sure why not
16:42<andythenorth>Efficiency: awaiting cargo
16:42<andythenorth>Efficiency: awaiting deliveries
16:42<frosch123>efficiency: your turn
16:42<supermop>everyday the workers show up eagerly thinking,
16:42<frosch123>probably to subtile to understand
16:42<andythenorth>Efficiency remains a boring word, eh
16:42<supermop>"today's going to be the day that some steel finally shows up to stamp!"
16:43*andythenorth tried others
16:43<supermop>production: idle
16:43<supermop>production: inefficient
16:43<frosch123>andythenorth: keep "efficency" and make the words after the ":" more interesting
16:43<andythenorth>‘Production’ is already in the window
16:43<supermop>production: efficient
16:43<frosch123>gung-ho etc
16:43<Wolf01>Efficiency: efficient
16:44<andythenorth>I could do a % :P
16:44<frosch123>efficiency: scottish
16:44<frosch123>noone will know what it means :)
16:44<andythenorth>Efficiency: 100 * 3/8
16:45<supermop>37.5% sounds odd
16:45-!-chomwitt [] has quit [Quit: WeeChat 1.0.1]
16:45<andythenorth>also % everywhere is blah
16:45<andythenorth>Efficiency: Italian | English | German
16:46<frosch123>efficiency: koala | horse | squirrel
16:46<supermop>legal american resident | illegal alien | outsourced foreign labor
16:46<Wolf01>Efficiency reminds me about how many delivered items are required to produce 1 output item
16:47<andythenorth>Efficiency: the cherry blossom dances in the breeze, carp rise in the waters
16:48<Wolf01>As it doesn't change (you still need x items to produce y output) I think you should think about another word
16:49<andythenorth>can’t think of one
16:49<andythenorth>efficiency is blah
16:49<andythenorth>but ‘production rate’ sounds like it’s over time, and repeats ‘production'
16:50<andythenorth>‘productivity’ looks like a weird partial repeat of ‘production'
16:50<Wolf01>I studied it some time ago, I think it should be efficacy
16:51<supermop>efficacy is too niche of a word in english for many players to be familiar with
16:51<supermop>its used mostly with phamcology
16:51<Wolf01>Efficency is abused in italian too, used in place of efficacy
16:51<andythenorth>‘Waste: epic | some | none’
16:52<andythenorth>‘Activity: none | low | some | shitloads'
16:52<frosch123>shitloads sounds good
16:52<andythenorth>can’t let my kids play then :)
16:52<andythenorth>‘hive of activity'
16:53<Wolf01>Activity: slug | turtle | horse | cheetah, so you make V happy because of slugs
16:54<frosch123>V would reverse the order though
16:54<Wolf01>Activity: slug | Slug | SLUG | SLUUUUUUUG!!
16:54<andythenorth>Activity is not bad
16:56<andythenorth>Activity level?
17:00<supermop>ok im leaving work
17:00<supermop>no computer for me for the next week

17:03<frosch123>oh, the "Nothing" actually works?
17:03<frosch123>i did not bother to code that case
