---Logopened Wed Jan 30 00:00:50 2008
00:01<Eddi|zuHause3>there was kind of a funny issue, the phase-modificators wouldn't work when they got too close to 16 2/3, so it was changed to 16,7 instead ;)
00:02<fjb>There is no processor with 666 MHz.

00:05<fjb>Hm, I'm unable to paint isometric graphics in gimp.
00:06<Eddi|zuHause3>i'd use vector graphics and export them
00:07<fjb>I'm trying now. That looks mouch easier. But how will it loke like in TTD size?
00:09<fjb>Inkskape uses Gimp palettes. That saves some work.
00:10<Eddi|zuHause3>downscaling will cause problems, i am pretty sure of that ;)
00:11<fjb>How big is a tile? 64 x 32 pixels?
00:11<Eddi|zuHause3>might be
00:14<fjb>So I could take a pictures all vour sides of a nice building, apply them to some rectagles, transform them to the isometric view and then scale them down to 50 x 25 pixels. :-)

07:55<keyweed>hello everyone.
07:56*yorick is trying to find out what the connection to is
07:57<a1270>6697 is a common ssl IRC port.
07:57<yorick>but why is stunnel connecting to it
07:58<a1270>maybe for bnc?
07:58<yorick>for what?
07:58<SmatZ>hello keyweed
07:59<SmatZ>yorick: maybe IRC server is testing your computer
07:59<a1270>an IRC bouncer. Basically allows you to use a stable server as an IRC proxy.

08:03<yorick>it seems to connect to another server each time
08:04<a1270>yeah, probably just BNC(irc bouncer).
08:04<yorick>dunno why, because it isn't used only for irc
08:05<yorick>used for pop3s, smtps and https
08:05<yorick>I have lunch now

09:03<Gonozal_VIII>yay unmovables with halfdesert :D
09:03<hylje>:o ?
09:04<Gonozal_VIII>my patch works for all ground types now, including halfdesert :-)
09:04-!-neli [] has joined #openttd
09:05<Gonozal_VIII>well ok... not all, hilly and rocky get changed to flat...
09:05<hylje>what have you done
09:05<Gonozal_VIII>a lot :-)
09:05<Gonozal_VIII>i'll upload new patch
09:06<Gonozal_VIII>yesterdays version without halfdesert is on flyspray
09:09-!-Tefad_ [] has joined #openttd
09:10-!-zrah_ [] has joined #openttd
09:11<Gonozal_VIII>and new version is on flyspray too
09:14<Eddi|zuHause3>i should start replacing those i Wagons...
09:14<Gonozal_VIII>i wagons?
09:14<keyweed>Apple iWagons!
09:14-!-Tefad [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:14<Gonozal_VIII>apple builds wagons now?
09:15<Gonozal_VIII>i was at a train station today...
09:15<Eddi|zuHause3>as opposed to ü wagons, i wagons have no protection at the connection between two wagons
09:15<Gonozal_VIII>and they had two trains on the same platform!
09:15<Gonozal_VIII>with signals in between!
09:16<Eddi|zuHause3>signals in between? i have not seen that
09:16-!-ben_goodger [~ben@] has joined #openttd
09:16<Eddi|zuHause3>although i do have seen multiple trains per station
09:16<Gonozal_VIII>platform 1a and 1b and signals
09:17<Eddi|zuHause3>well, i did not specifically look for signals
09:18<Eddi|zuHause3>DRG Bi Personenzugwagen braungrün 1925 40 Pass. 8 140 Typ "Donnerbüchse"
09:18<Eddi|zuHause3>as opposed to
09:18<Eddi|zuHause3>DRG AB4ü-26 Schnellzugwagen Fernverkehr 56 Pass. 7 160 Typ "Hecht"
09:18<Gonozal_VIII>and the name is related to the noise level inside?
09:19<Eddi|zuHause3>A is first class
09:19<Eddi|zuHause3>B is second class
09:19<Eddi|zuHause3>C is third class
09:19<Eddi|zuHause3>ü means "Übergang"
09:19<Eddi|zuHause3>26 is the building series
09:19<zrah_>what does ubergang mean?
09:19<Eddi|zuHause3>4 is the number of axles
09:19<Gonozal_VIII>"Donnerbüchse" <-- that^^
09:20<Eddi|zuHause3>zrah_: Übergan means that you can go from one wagon to the next
09:20-!-zrah_ is now known as zrah
09:20-!-Gekz [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:20<Gonozal_VIII>it sucks when people do that a lot in very full trains
09:20<Gonozal_VIII>and you stand next to the door and have to let them pass all the time...
09:21<Eddi|zuHause3>it sucks when people write in bold
09:21<Gonozal_VIII>i write bold?
09:22<Gonozal_VIII>or who?
09:22<Eddi|zuHause3>"Übergang" as opposed to very old segmented wagons, where you could not even go from one segment to the next except when stopped at a station
09:22<Yorick>how did you write bold?
09:22<+glx>bold is bad
09:22<Gonozal_VIII>whoooo writes bold
09:22-!-Ballard [] has joined #openttd
09:22<Eddi|zuHause3>which was dangerous for the conductors, because they had to go outside of the wagon, while the train was driving
09:23<murray><div style="font-weight: bold;">?</div>
09:23<+glx>it's worse like this
09:23<Gonozal_VIII>that's just two squares for me^^
09:24<Ballard>Hello i seach a howto to create a server on linux. anyone can help me?!
09:24<+glx>wiki is your friend :)
09:25<Yorick>tell me how to write bold :)
09:25<+glx>Yorick: ctrl-b
09:25<Ballard>ah Thanks :)
09:25<Gonozal_VIII>ctrl-k for kolour :D
09:26<+glx>colour is not allowed here
09:27<keyweed>bah. colour. *spits*
09:28<Gonozal_VIII>look at what i ceated people! look!
09:28<Yorick>no color
09:28<Forked>hide_colors = ON .. mmm irssi
09:29<murray>bell_beps = ON
09:29<Gonozal_VIII>for me, everything is arial bold font size 10 and black
09:30<blathijs>Forked: Yeah, that's a wonderful feature. Wonder if you can hide boldness and inverted stuff as well, it's nearly as annoying..
09:30<Tefad_>client strips out color codes for me
09:30<Tefad_>some IRCd can strip color with +S
09:30<Tefad_>dunno if this one supports that
09:30-!-Tefad_ is now known as Tefad
09:30<Forked>others can just deny you using colours on a channel :)
09:30-!-Ballard [] has quit [Quit: Trillian (]
09:30<Tefad>+c sometimes
09:31<+glx>blathijs: and underline ?
09:31<Gonozal_VIII>oh, i see underline
09:32<Gonozal_VIII>what's italic?
09:32<Tefad>hmm apparently that isn't the right control code : x
09:32<Tefad>isn't ital
09:33<blathijs>Ah, hide_text_style does the trick
09:33<Gonozal_VIII>how did you write that ohnoes? that's not bold for me... everything should be bold for me
09:33<Eddi|zuHause3>italic isn't officially supported, afaic
09:33<Eddi|zuHause3>as ^I is also the <TAB> character
09:33<Tefad>hows this Gonozal_VIII?
09:33*Forked puts channel on mental ignore for 30 minutes
09:33<Gonozal_VIII>square followed by normal text
09:34<Tefad>that control code is rather common for IRC..
09:34<Tefad>and now?
09:34<Gonozal_VIII>stop messing with fonts, look at my patch :P
09:34<Eddi|zuHause3>stop it, please?
09:34<Gonozal_VIII>all of you
09:34<Yorick>nice patch?
09:34<Tefad>i see ctrl+] there
09:35-!-Singaporekid [] has joined #openttd
09:35<+glx><Gonozal_VIII> stop messing with fonts, look at my patch :P <-- you started it
09:35<Gonozal_VIII>did not!
09:35<Yorick>[15:20] <Gonozal_VIII> it sucks when people do that a lot in very full trains
09:36<Yorick>15:21] <Gonozal_VIII> i write bold?
09:36<Yorick>so you did
09:36<+glx>[15:19:45] <Gonozal_VIII> "Donnerbüchse" <-- that^^
09:36<Eddi|zuHause3>hm... weird... it's 1968 and the E 10 carries TEE wagons, but the V200 cannot refit its wagons to TEE...
09:36<+glx>was the first line
09:36<Gonozal_VIII>i still can't see that any different to the other text i wrote
09:36<Gonozal_VIII>am i still writing bold?
09:36<Yorick>[15:36] <+glx> [15:19:45] <Gonozal_VIII> "Donnerbüchse" <-- that^^
09:36<Eddi|zuHause3>Gonozal_VIII: that is due to your inferior client
09:36<+glx>Yorick: it is bold here
09:37<Yorick>Gonozal_VIII stopped writing bold...
09:38*Yorick is using HydraIRC v0.3.160 (4/May/2007) - Grab it from
09:39<Yorick>[15:36] <Eddi|zuHause3> Gonozal_VIII: that is due to your inferior client
09:39<Gonozal_VIII>he was talking to me
09:39<Gonozal_VIII>i use trillian and that sucks for irc
09:39<Yorick>good you know that...
09:39<Eddi|zuHause3>yay for totally useless highlight (again)
09:39<Andel>I use mirc
09:40<Gonozal_VIII>but i don't want to use a second program just for one channel
09:40<Yorick>I'm on more servers than 1...
09:41*Yorick has 6 channels open :)
09:41<Gonozal_VIII>i used to be too, had mirc then but now i'm only on oftc and only in this channel, no need to use seperate program (i use trillian for msn messenger and icq)

09:44-!-Netsplit over, joins: Fujitsu, Hendikins
09:46<fjb>How big is the 2D projection of a tile? 64 x 32 pixels?
09:47<Tefad>31 i think
09:47<Gonozal_VIII>hmm that function getunmovableground has nothing to with unmovables... i should probably rename it to getground and move it somewhere more accessible
09:47<Gonozal_VIII>then it could be used for other stuff too :-)
09:48<Yorick>64x37, I think
09:48<fjb>Tefad: Is that documented anywhere?
09:48<Gonozal_VIII>i wrote that function
09:48<Tefad>no idea
09:48<Gonozal_VIII>ah tefad^^
09:48<fjb>The projection doesn't use the mathematical correct 30°. It is more like 27°.
09:49<Gonozal_VIII>you don't have any halfpixels...
09:49<Gonozal_VIII>so it's probably 22,5°
09:49<fjb>Or maybe that.
09:50<Eddi|zuHause3>it's not 22,5°
09:50<Gonozal_VIII>well, i don't know^^
09:50<fjb>But how many pixels heigh and wide is a tile then?
09:51<Gonozal_VIII>look at a sprite..
09:51<Gonozal_VIII>btw what do you want to do?
09:51-!-Osai`off is now known as Osai
09:51<fjb>I want to paint some things.
09:51<Gonozal_VIII>use existing sprites for the dimensions
09:53<Gonozal_VIII>i never liked that sin cos tan stuff
09:53-!-lekro [] has joined #openttd
09:53<Gonozal_VIII>would have to remember what to use where... and my memory sucks
09:54<Eddi|zuHause3>well it's 2 pixels to the side and 1 up
09:54<Gonozal_VIII>i know
09:54<Eddi|zuHause3>gegenkatete/ankatete -> tangens
09:54<Gonozal_VIII>see... that's the stuff i can't remember
09:54<fjb>So 27° wasn't that bad.
09:54<Eddi|zuHause3>but isometric view uses 2 along the diagonal, and 1 up
09:55<Eddi|zuHause3>gegenkatete/hypotenuse -> sin
09:55<Eddi|zuHause3>makes 30°
09:55<hylje>memory triangle
09:55<Eddi|zuHause3>just that is bad on pixel rasters
09:57<fjb>And I'm counting 64 x 32 pixels again.
09:57<Gonozal_VIII>there's no perspective either, tiles are same size everywhere on the screen but that doesn't matter
09:58<fjb>Gonozal_VIII: That is still a king of perspective.
09:58<ben_goodger>isometric perspective is a kind of perspective
09:58<ben_goodger>you're thinking of vanishing point perspective
09:59<Eddi|zuHause3>isometric is a parallel perspective
09:59<Eddi|zuHause3>it's a vanishing point perspective where the "horizon" is infinitely far away
09:59<Gonozal_VIII>yes yes, i've learned and drawn that...
10:00<Gonozal_VIII>i'm just saying that the view is not realistic
10:00<ben_goodger>of course it's not, it's isometric
10:00<Gonozal_VIII>and it doesn't matter
10:00<Gonozal_VIII>you would need flat eyes as big as the map to see it like that^^
10:00<fjb>But it matters how big things are if you try to paint them.
10:01<ben_goodger>if it were realistic it'd have to be done with realtime-rendered polygons, and I doubt even chris sawyer could have written that sort of thing
10:01<@Belugas>fick realism
10:01<Eddi|zuHause3>if you want "real" perspective, you need a sophisticated 3D rendering engine
10:02<Eddi|zuHause3>afaik there was like a PS2 version that did that
10:02<ben_goodger>the new 32 bit graphics are quite realistic in their way
10:02<Gonozal_VIII>now i'll try to get coast grapics :-)
10:02<fjb>Gonozal_VIII: Paint them.
10:03<Gonozal_VIII>not get them in that sense

10:04<LA[lord]>Gonozal_VIII: right
10:04<ben_goodger>does anyone actually play the desert/snowy climates?
10:06*fjb did.
10:06<LA[lord]>arghh.. maybe I shouldn't have picked the combined roadset to code for opengfx+ right now.. I havent't made any actionA nor realsprites yet and it is already as big as this Only skipping sprites engine there :P

10:08<Gonozal_VIII>hmmm no coasts defined in sprites.h
10:08<ben_goodger>I used to play that big preestablished scenario quite a lot in my youth, I never achieved any kind of altered mental state.. :(
10:08<fjb>LA[lord]: Are you writing in hex codes or do you have some kind of macros?
10:08<LA[lord]>hmm.. actually, if two grfs are loaded which modify the same things then the last defined will get priority?
10:09<LA[lord]>fjb: copy-paste and modify
10:09<fjb>ben_goodger: Just stare long enough at that orange wasteland.
10:09<LA[lord]>although it took me a while to think of the solution too :P
10:09<Gonozal_VIII>there's no priority... it just gets overwritten
10:10<LA[lord]>so I even if road sprites get defined twice (by opengfx AND opengfx+) then the last grf in list overwrites the first one?
10:11<LA[lord]>ok.. that's good
10:11<Gonozal_VIII>no that's not good
10:11<Gonozal_VIII>bad style :P
10:11<ben_goodger>fjb: heh
10:12-!-Leviath [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:12<LA[lord]>I should then add action07 to opengfx grf to skip some sprites if + version is avilable?
10:13<LA[lord]>but that can be done later too
10:13<LA[lord]>because currently Zephyris has all sources of opengfx grfs
10:13<Gonozal_VIII>+ version has everything that the other has too?
10:14<LA[lord]>umm.. yes I guess.. or it extends it.. I dunno. Currently it is a separate grf
10:14<LA[lord]>because I define more road sprites
10:15<Gonozal_VIII>you could merge that and add a parameter to activate + stuff
10:16<LA[lord]>I think separate is better
10:16-!-Dominik [] has joined #openttd
10:16<Gonozal_VIII>or just deactivate the normal grf is + is or will be loaded... action 7 can do that
10:17<LA[lord]>yes, but then the extended grf has to offer EVERYTHING
10:17<LA[lord]>but currently it changes road sprites
10:17<Gonozal_VIII>ah... then just skip the road stuff in the normal if + is active
10:18<LA[lord]>currently the opengfx infrasturcture has tunnels and rails etc.
10:18<Gonozal_VIII>same action 7 but with number of sprites set instead of 00
10:18-!-gfldex_ is now known as gfldex

10:28<Eddi|zuHause3>the refit options for wagons are bad anyway, they look at build year of the wagons, not year that the refit is done

10:49<Gonozal_VIII>rumors are mb is working on houses producing other stuff
10:49<SmatZ>like trash
10:49<Roujin>because some functions are currently still assuming houses only produce max two cargoes..
10:50<Gonozal_VIII>they should stockpile
10:50<Roujin>i stumbled over this while working on a patch of mine..

11:10<Gonozal_VIII>bah, forgot what i wanted to do again... good thin that i wrote it down
11:11<Roujin>sooo my question from before remains.. how many cargoes could a newgrf house produce?
11:11<keyweed>and when jupiter is in sagittarius, does that help?
11:11<LA[lord]>that has NO effect on (what?)
11:12<Gonozal_VIII>doesn't matter, that has no effect on anything
11:12<Roujin>if its limited to some number (say 3 or 4 or even 10) i won't bother making the whole stuff flexible like accepted_cargo
11:12<Roujin>but just make it static to that number
11:12<Gonozal_VIII>well, max is 32
11:12<keyweed>as a last resort you can try sending beer and/or sushi to devs. that usually helps.
11:13<Gonozal_VIII>sending sushi per mail? i don't think they would be happy about some rotten fish
11:13<Tefad>sushi credit?
11:13<@Belugas>[11:15] <Amis> its easy easy im sure, just an if (turned off) i wont add window, something like that :) <-- can you show me your diff?
11:13<Tefad>if i were a dev i wouldn't accept either of those "payments"
11:14<@Belugas>[11:15] <Roujin> sooo my question from before remains.. how many cargoes could a newgrf house produce? M<- as many as the specs specify
11:19<Roujin>well i seem to be unable to find where this is specified - a friendly hint would be much appreciated
11:20<Roujin>i delved into the ttdpatch wiki and found which callback and which action and so on is used for custom cargo production, but no word about how many custom cargoes it can produce _/

12:42<Roujin>is there a way to initialize an array with a specific value in ALL positions?
12:43<Roujin>and i don't mean array[x] = { a, a, a, a, a, a, a} because that is not nice for x=256

12:44*Belugas watches silently hylje, going from right to left on his rope. Not a word spreads out. Will the wind bring the answer? Who knows... Only TIME will tell
12:44<Eddi|zuHause3>you can initialise an array with any value you want, as long as you want that value to be 0
12:44<ln->that's true
12:44<Roujin>heh ^^
12:44<fjb>Roujin: Use a loop over the array.
12:45<Roujin>fjb: that's what i would do, i just thought there might be a "nicer" way..
12:45<ln->fjb: and that's better than memset because ________________?
12:45<Roujin>ln-: how does this memset work?
12:45<Gonozal_VIII>wtf is memset
12:46<Eddi|zuHause3>memset sets mem, what else would it do?
12:46<Gonozal_VIII>of course....
12:46<Roujin>please be nice to a noob like me and elaborate a bit on how to use it ;)
12:47<Eddi|zuHause3>for i in range(0, n):
12:47<Eddi|zuHause3> arr.append(value)
12:47<LA[lord]>how do I set bit 4 in action07 variable 86? and how do I not set it? 86 B Road traffic side: bit 4 clear=left, set=right
12:47<Eddi|zuHause3>grr... it eats the indentation
12:48<Eddi|zuHause3>why would you SET it?
12:48<dih>my server won't boot
12:48<dih>kernel panic
12:48<Roujin>currently i have now in my code what i wrote above: array[x] = {a, a, a, ..., a} [x times] where x = 256 and a = something longer - and that's not nice and i know it ;)
12:49<Eddi|zuHause3>it's in the game options, the user sets that
12:49<+glx>LA[lord]: you only check it
12:49<@Belugas>mem set
12:49<LA[lord]>whatever :P How do I check it?
12:50<LA[lord]>just var 86?
12:50<Gonozal_VIII>you can append stuff to an array :O
12:50<Eddi|zuHause3>Gonozal_VIII: that depends on your language ;)
12:51<Eddi|zuHause3>python does not have arrays
12:51<Eddi|zuHause3>it has lists
12:51<Eddi|zuHause3>and subscriptable objects
12:51<Gonozal_VIII>lists have pointers
12:51<Gonozal_VIII>you said pointers are bad
12:51<Roujin>thanks, and sorry for getting on your nerves again T_T
12:51<@Belugas>and fengs
12:51<Eddi|zuHause3>only the wrong lists ;)
12:52<Eddi|zuHause3>"right" lists work like this:
12:52<Eddi|zuHause3>def append(self, value):
12:52<Eddi|zuHause3> if self.is_full():
12:52<Eddi|zuHause3> self.double_size()
12:52<+glx>LA[lord]: -1 * 0 07 86 01 00/01 04 xx
12:53<Eddi|zuHause3> self[self.last_index()+1] = value
12:53<hylje>Eddi|zuHause3: i thought the actual list implementation did more magic than that

13:46<+glx>it's not possible without converting it (that's how windows works)
13:46<yorick>no glx, you could be using the windows console
13:46<yorick>make it a console app

13:48<Amis>whats the adress of the grf page?

14:34<SpComb>and it corrupted itself?

14:34<yorick>how can that be?

14:35<SpComb>(in windows or linux)
14:35<dih>anyhow - kernel panic at boot time
14:35<HMage>dih: use reiserfs or xfs :)
14:35<yorick>with NFTS, it isn't very possible....
14:35<dih>i _am_ using reiserfs
14:35<dih>thank you

14:36<yorick>hmm...good plan to make your primary disk ext2...
14:36<dih>and that was the only partition the server was able to read :-D
14:37<HMage>dih: you think partition table is borked?
14:37<dih>if that were the case i could not mount all the partitions on my workstation
14:37<HMage>does dd give any read errors?
14:37<dih>yes - i dd a disk that could possibly be duff
14:38<dih>well - i could
14:38<dih>and then mount the images in loopback
14:38<dih>but then i only want images of the data - not the entire partitions
14:39<yorick>how come the ups failed?
14:40<dih>the bateries seem duff
14:41<dih>if they were not duff the ups would have powerd all 30 servers
14:41<dih>but prob not as long as the outage lasted
14:42<dih>none the less - it would have had a chance to send the shutdown commands
14:42<yorick>but long enough to shutd-yes
14:42<dih>but 3 seconds after power cut the ups was out too

15:20<yorick>yes, I had to look for it :)
15:20<Eddi|zuHause3><peter1138> railroad crossings... on slopes...? <- maybe he meant on foundations?
15:20<Gonozal_VIII>it's spelled with 'u' sacro
15:21<yorick>I think it is the same word in german
15:21<Eddi|zuHause3>yes, Kalium is Kalium in german ;)
15:21<Eddi|zuHause3>i have no idea what Potassium is though...
15:22<@peter1138>Eddi|zuHause3, ah, possible
15:23<Eddi|zuHause3>why would somebody call the element that has "K" as symbol call "Potassium", which does not even closely resemble a "K"?
15:23<yorick>because it comes from latin
15:23<yorick>and is Kalium in latin
15:24<hylje>i think there's three different "Potassium" elements
15:24*Maedhros spent half an hour today grinding up potassium hydroxide to make it into a "fine powder"
15:24<hylje>depending on the language used
15:24<Maedhros>it wasn't fun...
15:24<fjb>I saw a diagonal road / railroad crossing in the forum some days ago. Was that a mock up or is there a patch for that?
15:24<hylje>and the languages are also interchangeable i recall
15:24<Maedhros>Eddi|zuHause3: ditto lead (= Pb)
15:24<Sacro>fjb: was a patch
15:24<Eddi|zuHause3>ok, lead is called something entirely different in german also...
15:25<yorick>its "lood" in dutch
15:25<planetmaker>There are many where languages differ :)
15:25<Gonozal_VIII>hmm lood... like lot :-)
15:25<planetmaker>For hydrogen it's where the English is matching the chemical symbol - and the German "Wasserstoff" - well - only hints at its contribution to water (Wasser)
15:26<Gonozal_VIII>lot in german is a piece of metal (like lead) on a string to see if something is right below something else....

15:26<@peter1138>that's a plumb-bob
15:26<Eddi|zuHause3>"Wasserstoff" is pretty much a literal translation of "Hydrogen" (or the other way round)
15:27<yorick>same ^^
15:27<planetmaker>sure. :)
15:28<Sacro>Gonozal_VIII: a plumb(line)
15:29<planetmaker>And how do we explain then "Sauerstoff" (=oxygen). Oxygen doesn't even make anything sour - rather OH is a base(?)...
15:29<Gonozal_VIII>yes, that stuff
15:30<Eddi|zuHause3>planetmaker: basically, it's a misnomer ;)

16:22<Gonozal_VIII>didn't change any alignment
16:22<fjb>I didn't notice any problem yet. I have to take a closer look.
16:23<Gonozal_VIII>and... where is it wrong?
16:23<Gonozal_VIII>can't see it
16:23<fjb>The gras look kind of fluffy. Like plüsch (what is the english word?).
16:23<Gonozal_VIII>grass is fluffy...
16:24<fjb>Look at the trains coming from the bottom right.
16:24<Gonozal_VIII>it's not a flat rubber mat on the ground^^
16:24<fjb>Looks like nicely cleaned grass.
16:25<Gonozal_VIII>nicely cleaned grass?
16:25<Tefad>plush is an english word
16:25<Tefad>some couches fit the description
16:25<fjb>Too green, no spots of dirt. The original grass tiles have more brown spots.

16:32<fjb>Hm, some of the wogons of the serbian set look a bit small in contrast to the rails. Maybe that is the cause for the alignment problem.
16:36<fjb>And you could use more than one locomotion to pull a train. That would look much better than that many signals.
16:37<Gonozal_VIII>but wouldn't help anything
16:37<Gonozal_VIII>16 km/h is top spee
16:38<Eddi|zuHause3>like i said, industry capacity must start very low, and then rise as train capacities rise
16:38<fjb>But with longer trains you can transport more per train.
16:39<Eddi|zuHause3>yes, but still less than with later trains
16:39<Eddi|zuHause3>like in the DBSetXL, when you get the 4 axle wagons, you can almost doulbe the capacity of the trains with the same length

19:12<fjb>Which language are you talking about? = is comparison in most languages.
19:13<Eddi|zuHause3>whatever you think "most" is
19:13<Gonozal_VIII>in what languages?
19:14<Eddi|zuHause3>= is comparison in pascal style languages, assignment in c style languages
19:14<Eddi|zuHause3>i have definitely seen more of the second kind
19:16<fjb>Anyway, without declaring the language first every asumption is allowed.
19:17<Gonozal_VIII>well... this is the openttd channel... openttd is in c++ and in c++ comparison is ==
19:17<Eddi|zuHause3>of course, and i did my own assumption ;)
19:19<Eddi|zuHause3>but still, languages where = is comparison i only know pascal (and derivates), clipper, sather, and i'm not sure about basic
19:19<+glx>basic use = for comparison and assigning
19:20<Gonozal_VIII>how does that work?
19:20<Eddi|zuHause3>assignment in C/C++, Java, C#, Python, and a whole lot of others
19:20<Gonozal_VIII>javascript :-)
19:20<Eddi|zuHause3>Gonozal_VIII: depending on context?
19:21<fjb>And it can't be C++ ac C++ doen't have a type bool.
19:21<+glx>c++ has bool
19:21<Eddi|zuHause3>C doesn't have bool
19:21<Gonozal_VIII>i've seen bool in the code somewhere
19:21<Eddi|zuHause3>C++ does
19:21<+glx>true and false are c++ keywords
19:21<ln->i think even C(99) has bool.
19:22<murray>even your mom has bool
19:22<fjb>Hm, when true and false are reserved words, then the above statement can't be C++ either.
19:22<Eddi|zuHause3>Gonozal_VIII: openttd defined bool long before it was ported to c++
19:22<ln->hmm, C99 has _Bool
19:22<+glx>yes because C
19:22<Gonozal_VIII>it can be c++ but it won't work
19:23<Gonozal_VIII>i never said it would work^^
19:25<Eddi|zuHause3>it can't be any language if it doesn't work in that language
19:25<Eddi|zuHause3>languages define that only those programs are in the language that work
19:25<fjb>Since when does C++ have bool?
19:26<Eddi|zuHause3>but it could be a brainfuck program ;)
19:26<Gonozal_VIII>it was a joke, jokes don't work if their content works normally :P
19:26<Eddi|zuHause3>in which case, it would be all comment ;)
19:27<fjb>ISO C++ definitely didn't have bool in 1992.
19:27<Eddi|zuHause3>there ARE jokes that work normally
19:27-!-Vikthor [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
19:27<ln->fjb: there definitely was no ISO C++ in 1992.

19:29<fjb>Ok, I'm having only the draft here.
19:29<fjb>At least the draft for ISO C++ didn't have bool.
19:32<ln->"2.13.5 Boolean literals
19:32<ln->The Boolean literals are the keywords false and true. Such literals have type bool. They are not lvalues."

19:39<Eddi|zuHause3>also, it's vaguely related to Belugas' sentence ;)

19:49<Eddi|zuHause3>they put like 20 people in such a car
19:50<Gonozal_VIII>4 tourists are 16 passengers :-)
19:55<ln->how to fit five elephants to a vw beetle?
19:55<Eddi|zuHause3>hm, i only know 4
19:55<ln->could have been 4, not sure
19:56<Eddi|zuHause3>and usually dinosaurs
19:56<ln->elephants over here
19:56<Eddi|zuHause3>typical answer is "two on the front seats, two on the back seats"
19:56<Korenn>the dutch version uses a play on words ;)
19:57<Eddi|zuHause3>Korenn: care to elaborate?
19:58<Korenn>in dutch elephant is 'oliefant'. 'olie' is dutch for oil. so the response is: 'let the oil run out and fold up the "fant"'
19:58<Korenn>'olifant'*, typo
20:00<Korenn>it's lame, I know :P
20:00<Eddi|zuHause3>is there some specific meaning to "fant"?
20:00<Eddi|zuHause3>we have that kind of word plays in german, too, but i can't remember one right now
20:01<Korenn>no, 'fant' would imply whatever's left of the elephant after draining the oil ;)
20:01<ln->what are oliphants of Middle Earth called in dutch?
20:02<Korenn>just the normal word for elephant ;)
20:02<Korenn>so, olifant
20:02<ln->but.. but.. the point is lost in translation then.
20:03<Eddi|zuHause3>well, it's close enough, i guess ;)
20:03<Korenn>what point? that they use a dutch word to make something sound foreign? they do that all the time :P
20:03<Korenn>americans tend to do that, although they mix up german and dutch to whatever sounds more foreign ;)
20:03<ln->now, now, professor Tolkien wouldn't have made such a cheap trick. must be a coincidence.
20:04<Korenn>(not saying tolkien was american, I know he wasn't)
20:04<Korenn>why? he chose finnish as the base of his elvish language because it looked pretty
20:05<Eddi|zuHause3>the dwarven writings are based on germanic runes
20:05<Eddi|zuHause3>and the whole elf/dwarf culture is based on nordic tales
20:05<Korenn>even the mordor language was based on a european language, but I don't recall which one
20:06<ln->Korenn: finnish is not cheap
20:06<Eddi|zuHause3>well, he was a professor for languages ;)
20:06<Eddi|zuHause3>the rohirrim speak old english
20:07<Korenn>they're references to european languages. so I don't think 'olifants' is a coincidence at all
20:07<Korenn>he probably just looked at all the european words for elephant and picked one that looked foreign enough
20:07<Eddi|zuHause3>although i recall it being written "olifaunt" somewhere
20:07<Eddi|zuHause3>or with ph?
20:08<Korenn>ugh, late. I'm off to bed. see ya :)

20:16<fjb>Germany is changing to blue this years.
20:17<Gonozal_VIII>they changed from white base colour to silver because they can resell silver cars better

20:19<Gonozal_VIII>something like red and yellow i think
20:19<Eddi|zuHause3>green is usually associated with hunters, the police forces might have evolved from those

20:19<Eddi|zuHause3>fjb: "wrong" germany ;)
20:20<ln->actually hmm, i might have seen some blueish polizei cars in bremen.
20:20<fjb>The police uniforms in that picture are Western Germany uniforms.
20:20<ln->i know
20:21<Eddi|zuHause3>the military police evolved from a group of hunters with horses, who were originally hired because they knew the forests and could find paths and places for camps
20:21<fjb>Swiss policecars are red stripe on white ground.
20:21<Gonozal_VIII>good thing that the word police is simmilar on many languages
20:22<fjb>Actual blue uniforms are looking more like black than blue.

20:29<fjb>It is not even safe in any kind of accident.
20:29<Eddi|zuHause3>Hanse was a trade federation around the baltic sea
20:29<Gonozal_VIII>Lübeck, Hamburg, Bremen, Braunschweig, Danzig, Hildesheim, Köln, Osnabrück und Rostock.
20:30<+glx>hmm how do they "encode" all these towns starting with a H
20:31<Eddi|zuHause3>glx: they use that to resolve naming conflicts
20:31<Gonozal_VIII>HH is hamburg, i don't know about hildesheim
20:31<Eddi|zuHause3>H is Hannover, while HH is hamburg
20:31<fjb>HI is Hildesheim. H is Hannover.
20:31<Eddi|zuHause3>HB is Bremen while B is Berlin
20:32<Eddi|zuHause3>besides, there are plenty of letters ;)
20:32<Gonozal_VIII> <-- strange building style^^
20:32<Eddi|zuHause3>some cities have 3 letters
20:32<ln->And where's the logic -- Bremen and Hamburg happen to be bundesländer, but Hannover doesn't happen to be. So if you live somewhere between Hannover and Kassel, what's your plate?
20:32<Eddi|zuHause3>HRO for Hansestadt Rostock
20:33<Eddi|zuHause3>ln-: the letters are not for "bundesländer" but for "landkreise"
20:33<fjb>ln-: The letter denotes the Landkreis.
20:33<fjb>GS is Goslar.
20:33<Eddi|zuHause3>or cities without Landkreis
20:33<ln->aha, must be some concept i'm not too familiar with. i've heard that word before, though.
20:33<fjb>Goslar is in Niedersachsen, like Hildesheim and Hannover are.

21:07<+glx>yeah same here (the difference is around 0,10€)
21:07<ln->the average age of finnish cars is high
21:07<Gonozal_VIII>btw normal is 91, super 95 and super plus 98 octane here... (iirc)
21:08<+glx>only 95 and 98 here
21:08<+glx>old cars need 98 (because they used leaded 97 before)
21:08<Gonozal_VIII>that 91 stuff is more for old cars, lawn mowers, chainsaws and things like that...
21:09<ln->now i'll try to sleep for a while.. if i fail, i'll blame this channel.

21:30<fjb>On normal gauge you have two passenger wagons. Two axle for passengers, four axle for tourists and only usable with two of the steam engines, not with the new diesel engine (serbian version of V200).
21:31<fjb>Maybe in later years. I'm in 1957 now.

21:37<fjb>No, I can't buy that yet.
21:37<Gonozal_VIII>that has powered wagons therefore lots of hp :-)
21:38<fjb>I'm having a DMU like that for narrow gauge since years.
21:40<Gonozal_VIII>ganz something?
21:40<fjb>Now I can buy that Fiat. But the V200 is faster.
21:40<Gonozal_VIII>only 70 km/h...
21:40<fjb>Yes, but it is quiet old by now.
21:41<fjb>Maximum speed for passenger trains on standard gauge is 101 km/h.
21:41<Gonozal_VIII>yes but will be 201
21:42-!-De_Ghost [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:43<fjb>The locomotions are much faster, but there is no passenger car that is fast enough.
21:43<Gonozal_VIII>fiat 101 passenger car 101 ;-)
21:44-!-De_Ghost [] has joined #openttd
21:45<fjb>But 140 km/h of the diesel locomotion is much faster.
21:46<Gonozal_VIII>only for freight ;-)
21:47<Gonozal_VIII>you'll have a 120 km/h passenger car in '62
21:48<fjb>Freight can go 140km/h already.
21:49<Gonozal_VIII>nice new passenger engine in 66
21:49<Gonozal_VIII>160km/h passenger car in 72
21:49<fjb>fast freight, slow passengers...
21:50<Gonozal_VIII>yes, that's kind of strange
21:51<Gonozal_VIII>but i guess they have their information from somewhere...
21:52<fjb>You should not travel too fast and too far in a comunist state. :-)
21:55<Gonozal_VIII>strange speeds with 101 and 201 anyways
21:55<Gonozal_VIII>maybe i'll change that to 100 and 200 just because
21:56<Gonozal_VIII>could be the gamecode adding stuff
21:56<Gonozal_VIII>transrapid has 500 in the grf but ingame it's 502, had to change it to 498 to get 500
21:57<fjb>Yes, there are rounding errors.
21:58<Gonozal_VIII>what's there to round? there's a value defined in the grf, just need to read that^^
21:59<Gonozal_VIII>i thought it could be the minimum speed that you get uphills with too heavy wagons that gets added... but that would be more like 3-4 than 1-2
22:00<Eddi|zuHause2>Gonozal_VIII: the internal value is in km/h, but for display it is converted to mph and then back to km/h
22:00<Gonozal_VIII>ah i see
22:00<Gonozal_VIII>that sucks^^
22:01<Eddi|zuHause2>someone tried to change that in the past, but he broke under the weight of the complaints of the traditionalists
22:01<Gonozal_VIII>traditionalists? it could still be converted to mph
22:01<Gonozal_VIII>better to convert once than twice...
22:02<fjb>The value in the grf is in mph.
22:02<Eddi|zuHause2>yes, but apparently some people did not like the changed numbers
22:02<Gonozal_VIII>grf is in km/h
22:03<fjb>Neither: Train speed is in units of mph*1.6, i.e. approximately km/h.
22:03<Gonozal_VIII>ah that's where the difference comes from
22:04<Gonozal_VIII>strange that it affects 100 but not 120, 140, 160
22:05<Eddi|zuHause2>@calc 120/1.6
22:05<@DorpsGek>Eddi|zuHause2: 75
22:05<Eddi|zuHause2>@calc 100/1.6
22:05<@DorpsGek>Eddi|zuHause2: 62.5
22:05<Gonozal_VIII>oh... there is 101 in the grf
22:06<Gonozal_VIII>Train speed is in units of mph*1.6, i.e. approximately km/h. <-- who wrote that?
22:06<Eddi|zuHause2>but it really annoys me that the DBSet speeds are always like 59, 99 or 149 km/h
22:07<Gonozal_VIII>it's in km/h, hex values of km/h
22:07<Eddi|zuHause2>it was so round numbers with the changed display
22:07<Gonozal_VIII> 0x0065 (101)
22:07<Eddi|zuHause2>well, there is some kind of coincidence with the base being 16 ;)
22:08<Gonozal_VIII>hex is not just * 1,6
22:08-!-glx [] has quit [Quit: bye]
22:08<Eddi|zuHause2>no, but the second nibble is *16
22:09<Gonozal_VIII>that page is wrong
22:09<Eddi|zuHause2>the first nibble can be read decimal (as long as the number fits)
22:09<Gonozal_VIII> 0x0078 (120)
22:09<Gonozal_VIII> 0x0065 (101)
22:10<Gonozal_VIII>0x008C (140)
22:10<Eddi|zuHause2>what exactly is your problem now?
22:10<Gonozal_VIII>speed values in the grf
22:10<Gonozal_VIII>that's km/h
22:10<Gonozal_VIII>not some strange mph stuff
22:10<Gonozal_VIII>in those property 9s
22:11<Gonozal_VIII>they are all displayed ingame as intended except the 200 that gets changed to 201
22:12<Gonozal_VIII>and 500 gets 502 so about a half percent off
22:12<Eddi|zuHause2>i still fail to see the "wrong" part
22:12<Gonozal_VIII>that's not mph * 1,6
22:13<Eddi|zuHause2>1 mph = 1.609344 kph
22:13<Eddi|zuHause2>there is your "half percent"
22:13<Gonozal_VIII>ok, i thought it was more like 1,65
22:13<Gonozal_VIII>sorry then
22:14<Eddi|zuHause2>and exactly this "half percent" was enough for the traditionalists to complain

22:15<fjb>One of my tourists towers had a bit of bad luck with it's placement:
22:15<Gonozal_VIII>i would throw out all imperial units anyways...
22:16<Gonozal_VIII>what's that road tunnel?
22:16<fjb>A raod tunnel.
22:16<Gonozal_VIII>where's the sprite from
22:17<Eddi|zuHause2>the train set doesn't look very good...
22:18<fjb>The vehicles are a bit too small.
22:18<Gonozal_VIII>those are the smallest wagons, they get bigger
22:19<fjb>I think they are smaller than the rails under them.
22:20<Gonozal_VIII>no... it's ok to see the rail from that angle
22:22<Gonozal_VIII>btw i've seen an ice with ÖBB printed on it today...
22:22<Gonozal_VIII>i didn't know we had those
22:23<Gonozal_VIII>not today of course... yesterday
22:23<Gonozal_VIII>and also one of those br 101s
22:25<fjb>Oh, if we couldn't get you as part of germany, you should at least get our rail stuff.
22:28<Gonozal_VIII>nice page

22:30<fjb>Yes. I know it.

22:31<fjb>We sell that crap to everybody.
22:31<Eddi|zuHause2>well, when the "T" breaks, there is no point in keeping them :p

22:32-!-helb__ [~helb@] has joined #openttd
22:32<Gonozal_VIII>i guess the problem are the wagons
22:32<Gonozal_VIII>wagon speed limit^^
22:33<Eddi|zuHause2>long distance wagons are typically allowed for 200 here
22:33<Eddi|zuHause2>newer local wagons for 160, older wagons for 140
22:37<Gonozal_VIII>we still have some of those old wagons with manual doors where you can open the doors anytime while the train is moving
22:38<Eddi|zuHause2>they are not allowed anymore, here
22:38<Gonozal_VIII>you know those? where you have to turn a lever and then push the doors out... and you have to close them again, they don't close automatically
22:38<Eddi|zuHause2>even during DR times they changed those
22:39<Gonozal_VIII>and the conductor gets mad if he sees that you let the doors open and he has to walk there and close them...
22:39<Eddi|zuHause2>yes, i know those, we once caught a train pretty late...
22:40<Eddi|zuHause2>meaning it was already driving, and we hopped on
22:40<Gonozal_VIII>got cought?
22:40<Eddi|zuHause2>i'm not sure, i was rather young
22:41<Eddi|zuHause2>my father later told me that they introduced the automatic doors because of that incident, but i'm not really buying that ;)
22:41<Gonozal_VIII>in my school time there were only those... now they are rare but still in use
22:42<Gonozal_VIII>but on the mainlines they are already two wagon generations further
22:43<Gonozal_VIII>those with the flat metal lever that triggers pneumatic door opening and the new ones with a green button that lights up if the door is unlocked
22:44<Eddi|zuHause2>i've not used a train in a few years now...
22:44<Gonozal_VIII>you should!
22:44<Gonozal_VIII>trains rock :-)
22:45<Gonozal_VIII>the new wagons even have power outlets inside which is cool, i can plug my laptop in there and play openttd :-)
22:48<Gonozal_VIII>there's a guy on n-tv that plannes buildings and even cities based on feng shui...
22:55<Gonozal_VIII>a bridge that splits in two diagonal bridges!!
