02:42<andythenorth>I need fewer ports
02:52<@Alberth>that would need connecting chains
02:52<@Alberth>how does extreme do that, it has a zillion ports?
02:54<@Alberth>tbh I am not sure you should make each economy the same-ish, so the same game-play is useful for each economy
02:55<andythenorth>extreme uses ports to provide free ENSP and FMSP
02:55<andythenorth>otherwise the gameplay is very dominated by generating those cargos

02:56<andythenorth>extreme is better played as a sandbox, or with BB
02:57<@Alberth>so it has enough chains to avoid ports
02:58<andythenorth>well it has enough chains that it's easy to dump arbitrary cargos into ports
02:58<andythenorth>generating ENSP and FMSP
02:59<andythenorth>ports function to get cargos produced from inputs that make no sense IRL
02:59<andythenorth>trading, rather than processing

05:40<Samu>i need a proper way to identify an oil rig station at an industry, for newgrf purposes
05:40<Samu>i tested FIRS
05:41<Samu>there's an industry that is built on water but doesn't have an oilrig station near
05:42<@Alberth>andythenorth: "Larger cargoflow" doesn't quite work, but the farms seem out of place to me
05:43<Samu>Port, Bulk Terminal, Fishing Harbour, more than 1 actually
05:44-!-andythenorth [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:47<Samu>then, there's Fishing Grounds and Dredging Site which built oilrigs, firs calls it sandbanks
05:49<@Alberth> ports are not water industries
05:50-!-Stimrol [] has joined #openttd
05:50-!-Stimrol is "Stimrol" on #openttd
05:52<Samu>i'm confused, i need to build them at coasts
05:52<Samu>coastal tiles are water tiles
05:53<@Alberth>yes, it requires coast tiles but it's a normal lang industry
05:53<@Alberth>you cannot use the industry without building a station next to it
05:54-!-Biolunar [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
05:54<@Alberth>andy just added a requirement to the tiles that some must be watery
05:54<@Alberth>looks better, given the name :)
05:55<Samu>i need to investigate the Port industry better
05:55<Samu>what behaviour does it have and such
05:56<@Alberth>you can look up in the code what type iof industry it i
05:56-!-Alberth [] has left #openttd []
05:56<Samu>so apparently, i can't identify an oil rig by the industry behavioir
05:57<Samu>when i say oil rig, I mean the station near the industry
06:07<V453000>do I go to jail if I have openttd in the background just playing the original ttd music?

08:34<andythenorth>so how much should the grapviz layout dictate FIRS gameplay?
08:34<Eddi|zuHause>as grahpviz layout is generally terrible: not too much
08:38<andythenorth> is that a mess or not?
08:38<andythenorth>because the economy plays fine
08:38<andythenorth>'mess' is a relative concept in graphviz output
08:39<Eddi|zuHause>that seems fine to me, why?
08:40<andythenorth>triangulating what 'mess' means to other people
08:42<Eddi|zuHause>not sure if i'm a reliable authority on that :p
08:42<andythenorth>it will do

08:57<andythenorth>this chart is somewhat neat
08:58<andythenorth>but Pipe doesn't go to Liquids Terminal, and I want it to
08:58<andythenorth>it's play-tested already and works fine
08:58<andythenorth>adding that edge ruins the graph
08:58<andythenorth>also sending Vehicles to port ruins the graph
08:59<Eddi|zuHause>can't help you on that
09:00<frosch123>sulphur goes to liquids terminal?
09:00<andythenorth>molten sulphur

09:02<frosch123>port is weird
09:02<frosch123>port is like a town
09:03<Eddi|zuHause>i think you can add a property to a -> so it doesn't induce a layout change
09:03<frosch123>can the general store produce gold?
09:03<andythenorth>that's kind of what I want to hear
09:03<Eddi|zuHause>but instead is drawn whatever way fits
09:03<Samu>need english help

09:05<andythenorth>pretty bad
09:05<frosch123>vehicle dealer should output scrap metal
09:05<frosch123>hmm, oh there is a separate scrap yard
09:05<andythenorth>scrappage :)
09:05<andythenorth>at a fixed rate?

09:25<Samu>i figured better variable names
09:25<supermop_home>Eddi|zuHause: that was the colloquial name used in the news, the actual law/program had some stupid law name no one remembers
09:25<Samu>hope they're clear enough
09:25<Eddi|zuHause>supermop_home: we had a similar program called "Abwrackprämie"
09:26<supermop_home>sometimes American laws have the most boring uninformative names,
09:26<Samu>oh, supermop_home, if you have time, are these string names easy to understand?
09:26<Eddi|zuHause>supermop_home: german law names are also boring, but also occasionally monstrous :p
09:27<Samu>they are strings for settings
09:27<supermop_home>and sometimes some congressman tries to be clever and shoehorn a ridiculous name into a lame acronym that makes you roll your eyes like a bad dad joke
09:27<Eddi|zuHause>i'm not sure the concept of a "dad joke" exists here
09:27<supermop_home>samu, make sense to me
09:28<supermop_home>Eddi|zuHause I could make a bad dad joke about how all german jokes are bad....
09:28<supermop_home>I do know many germans who are pretty funny though
09:28<Samu>Alberth: i might have some trouble identifying industries which build stations
09:29<Samu>is this enough?
09:30<Samu>i'm not too sure what tile_are_loop do
09:30<Eddi|zuHause>supermop_home: well, my understanding of "dad jokes" is that they're meant to be bad
09:31-!-Guest7649 is now known as Prof_Frink
09:31<supermop_home>Eddi|zuHause I think it depends on if the joke is being told as a meta joke or not
09:31-!-Prof_Frink is now known as Guest7651
09:31<supermop_home>in the most straightforward case I believe it is just a bad joke from a dad who things its kind of funny
09:33<supermop_home>some dads of course are aware of how embarassing the bad jokes are to their teenage kids and as a meta joke, then tell intentionally bad jokes in the style of a clueless dad
09:33<Samu>are there newgrf industries that build train stations, i think i saw some newgrf that do this... can't recall
09:34<supermop_home>my dad seemed to pass into this 2nd phase around 8 or so years ago (when I was already in my 20s)
09:34<supermop_home>also before he became aware of this trope he actually told pretty good jokes
09:35<supermop_home>after having a few jokes fall flat with my wife, over the past couple years, I have prematurely moved to the dad joke phase with her
09:37<andythenorth>if I delete the Pipe cargo, the graph likely improves
09:37<supermop_home>what is the UK dad joke paradigm andythenorth?
09:38<andythenorth>on a par with dad dancing
09:39<supermop_home>hmm that is not an established trope here
09:39<supermop_home>my dad generally avoids dancing as much as possible
09:40<supermop_home>my mom had to force him to at my wedding
09:40-!-Flygon [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
09:40<frosch123>also at his own wedding?
09:40<andythenorth>ok so FIRS graphs are poor when an end-of-chain output cargo loops back to near the start of a chain
09:41<andythenorth>the graphs are set up to avoid that for ENSP and FMSP
09:41<frosch123>andythenorth: it's called "supplies"
09:41<frosch123>replace pipe with engsup?
09:41<supermop_home>frosch123 based on the photos of him in an all white tuxedo with flared pants, I assume he was a bit more eager then
09:41<andythenorth>frosch123: tried that, works
09:42<andythenorth>doesn't give me interesting cargo sprites though :)
09:42<supermop_home>andy's lament "it works, must fix it"
09:42<supermop_home>you could tattoo that across your chest

09:48<andythenorth>supermop_home: should <button> and <input> tags in html stop showing hand cursor on hover? o_O
09:48<andythenorth>oops, wrong obsession :P
09:49<andythenorth>frosch123: is it wrong to group more cargos in with ENSP/FMSP? o_O
09:49-!-FLHerne [] has joined #openttd
09:49-!-FLHerne is "Francis Herne" on #openttd
09:51<frosch123>i would rather look at the amount of industries producing/requireing them
09:51<frosch123>supplies are not supposed to be a mass cargo, right?
09:52<frosch123>they add production bonuses but are not directly processed
09:52<andythenorth>ports are unusual
09:52<andythenorth>and are causing me trouble in Steeltown
09:52<frosch123>i actually would cut down on the ports in steeltown
09:52<andythenorth>I'm trying to :)
09:52<frosch123>merge port and trading post
09:53<supermop_home>i'd cut down on ports in general in most cases
09:53<frosch123>merge pipe into ensp
09:53<frosch123>and remove ensp from trading post
09:53<supermop_home>seems like port should be a niche helper, not the focus of chains
09:53<andythenorth>depends on economy
09:53<supermop_home>of course
09:54<andythenorth>if the only source of ENSP is the steel chain, Steeltown is unplayable :)
09:54<andythenorth>needs to be some almost-free sources
09:54<supermop_home>port is bootstrap helper
09:55<supermop_home>when game starts its like you are on some undeveloped frontier, of course you need a little bit from outside to start up
09:55<frosch123>i do not quite like "zinc"
09:56<frosch123>is there a good term for "additive metals" or something?
09:56<supermop_home>but some portal where you dump hundreds of tons of x and get hundreds of tons of y doesn't quite fit
09:56<frosch123>something that could be delivered to multiple sources
09:56<frosch123>like foundry
09:56<supermop_home>something like fine metals?
09:56<frosch123>or some tools workshop: steel + additive metals -> goods
09:56<supermop_home>idk if that is the word, but thats the analogous term for chemical industry
09:56<frosch123>+ensp possibly
09:57<andythenorth>frosch123: I had 'non-ferrous metals' previously
09:57<andythenorth>deleted it in an earlier version
09:57<andythenorth>I am 100% not convinced by zinc
09:57<supermop_home>i wonder if grouping all the alloying metals together is weird tho
09:57<andythenorth>it was better as chemicals
09:57<supermop_home>zinc is a chemical
09:58<andythenorth>let's try dropping zinc
09:58<frosch123>chemicals are liquids to me :)
09:58<andythenorth>liquid zinc ;)
09:58<frosch123>"fine metals" sound fine to me
09:58<frosch123>zinc -> fine metals
09:58<frosch123>fine metals -> foundry
09:58<frosch123>steel + fine metals -> tools workshop -> goods + ensp
09:59<supermop_home>frosch123 i feel like people might think fine metals are things for jewelry though, platinum, silver, gold, iridium
09:59*andythenorth tests
09:59<andythenorth>I think just deleting zinc is cleanest
09:59<andythenorth>can't expect a clean graph if there's too much stuff
10:00<frosch123>weird priorities again :)

10:01<andythenorth>the graphs do seem to match up with playability
10:01*supermop_home fails to find simpsons zinc gif
10:01<andythenorth> <- I just played a game of that
10:01<andythenorth>the gameplay is fun, there are lots of almost-separate mini-chains
10:01<andythenorth>as per the graph
10:01<andythenorth>might be post-hoc rationalisation though :P
10:02<frosch123>"special metals"?
10:02<@Alberth>you change "in a hot country" lately?
10:03<andythenorth>not much
10:04<frosch123>andythenorth: about chains: i prefer asymmetric chains with either more producers than demanders or more demanders than producers. 1:1 cargos are weird
10:04<@Alberth>I tried it some time ago, and it didn't appeal to me, quite like default play
10:05<frosch123>that's why i would like to have zinc/fine metal/special metals to have mulitple destinations
10:05<andythenorth>yes, it IAHC is quite like default play
10:06<@Alberth>steeltown forces me to decide where to bring the cargo
10:07<@Alberth>(if I have something to say about it :p )
10:08<andythenorth>interesting feedback
10:08<andythenorth>I thought the choices would be annoying
10:08<andythenorth>I've been removing them
10:09<frosch123>mind, it's only a choice if there are few destinations (2 or 3)
10:09<andythenorth>it has an upside too
10:09<frosch123>not if it's "everyone wants it"
10:09<frosch123>so, different to supplies
10:09<andythenorth>when there are 2 destinations, there is possibly more chance of one of them being nearby :P
10:09<andythenorth>this is a serious factor
10:10<andythenorth>I think it's better without any secondary metals, just steel
10:10<andythenorth>logic says I should delete Pipe too
10:11<andythenorth>but Pipe cargo looks cool
10:11<andythenorth>I think that is a legit concern
10:14<@Alberth>clearly, pipe cargo must be yellow
10:14<andythenorth>or blue or green :D
10:15<@Alberth>I don't understand why you have farms and food in there
10:15<@Alberth>it looks off
10:15<andythenorth>food isn't optional
10:16<andythenorth>required for arctic and tropic
10:16<@Alberth>maybe you try to have alcohol in there? :p
10:16<frosch123>rename the economy to robot town
10:16<frosch123>replace food with batteries
10:17<andythenorth>are vehicles exportable? o_O
10:17<andythenorth>or just to towns?
10:17<andythenorth>there's something weird either way
10:17<andythenorth>vehicles -> port -> more stuff in the chain
10:18<andythenorth>vehicles -> towns, but everyone knows vehicles are a global export?
10:18<frosch123>i think ports should not accept the exact same as towns
10:18<frosch123>a port is not a town without inhabitants
10:19<frosch123>delivering goods or food to ports would be "wrong"
10:19<frosch123>vehicles may be acceptable
10:25<andythenorth>the clusters are better now

10:50<andythenorth>sand for glass isn't from the sea
10:50<andythenorth>should I add dredging site anyway?
10:50<andythenorth>there are zero sea-based industries in Steeltown
10:51<frosch123>i don't think that is bad
10:52<frosch123>keep the out-of-scope cargos to the ports :)
10:53<andythenorth>could add a black hole for Pipe
10:53<andythenorth>at sea
10:53<andythenorth>pipe-laying barge :P
10:54<andythenorth>could add wind turbines?
10:54<andythenorth>could add electrical machines?
10:54*andythenorth many ideas
10:59<@Alberth>consumer goods :)
10:59<frosch123>andythenorth: can you rename one of the ports to "shipyard"?
11:00<andythenorth>I played a game with shipyard :)
11:00<frosch123>or actually another shore-based industry "shipyard"
11:00<frosch123>accepting steel and pipe and stuff
11:00<andythenorth>had the 'sea supplies' concept
11:00<andythenorth>was kind of ... odd
11:00<andythenorth>sea supplies went to ports
11:01<frosch123>i imagine a shipyard to be visually interesting
11:01<supermop_home>hmm city is outpacing the cute jitneys
11:01<andythenorth>oil rig construction yard
11:01<andythenorth>no oil though :D
11:01<supermop_home>could replace with trams or proper buses but I like seeing the little guys run around
11:02<frosch123>andythenorth: ofc, they are under construction
11:02<andythenorth>maybe I should add train factory
11:03<frosch123>i would stay away from that rabbit hole
11:03<frosch123>people will demand effect on gameplay
11:04<frosch123>(somehow that does not hold for shipyards :p )
11:05<andythenorth>no :)
11:05<Samu>dayum, i was having trouble creating settings
11:06<Samu>turns out a damn typo was affecting it all
11:06<Samu>that damn S
11:06<Samu>was ruining
11:08<frosch123>shipyard could boost nearby ports?
11:08<frosch123>likely too obscure
11:10<andythenorth>too obscure :)
11:10<andythenorth>it was a cute concept, but the chains just got way too long
11:11<Samu>that Cargo Distribution just above... so misleading
11:12<Samu>is it in good english? i have yet to come with _HELPTEXTs
11:14<andythenorth>what else can I deliver to liquids terminal? o_O
11:18<andythenorth>resins? o_O
11:18<frosch123>not steeltown :)
11:19<andythenorth>milk? o_O
11:19<frosch123>you could shift cement from bulk terminal to liquids terminal
11:21<frosch123>when you move cement to liquids, you can merge bulk terminal and port
11:21<andythenorth>nah, I'm one cargo over
11:22<andythenorth>3 into 2 doesn't go

11:44<andythenorth>gas field?
11:44<andythenorth>gas -> lime kiln
11:44<andythenorth>pipe -> gas field
11:44<andythenorth>port -> chemicals
11:44<andythenorth>sulphur -> bulk terminal
11:45<andythenorth>delete liquids terminal
11:56<andythenorth>probably just time to start play-testing
11:56<andythenorth>enough armchair design :P
12:02<Samu>question, are there town buildings built on water?
12:03<Samu>well, nevermind, even if they are, they don't have a neutral station
12:03<supermop_home>samu, no I'm not sure how that would work
12:04<supermop_home>something like a Vietnamese or Cambodian 'floating village' would be neat
12:04<supermop_home>but in practice it would probably be more like a FIRS fishing grounds with different sprites

12:36<andythenorth>how did I break 2nd CC in Horse? :o
12:38<frosch123>removed the flag to enable it?
12:38<frosch123>added the cb for recoloring?
12:39<andythenorth>added the cb for recolouring
12:39<andythenorth>maybe the flag got mangled
12:40<frosch123>if the cb is used, the flag likely does not matter
12:40<frosch123>only the cb results
12:43<andythenorth>I get 2cc as blue only
12:43<frosch123>so the cb returns 2cc_base or something
12:43<andythenorth>recolour sprite might be wrong
12:45<frosch123> 1: return base_sprite_2cc; <!--! no change --> <- that sets both to dark blue

15:58<andythenorth>produced from soda ash and limestone
15:58<andythenorth>makes caustic soda and quicklime
15:58<andythenorth>which is all very clever, but I would just make it a second cargo from soda ash mine
15:58<andythenorth>to liquids terminal
15:59<andythenorth>or some other arbitrary chemicals
16:00<andythenorth>ammonia from Haber Process?
16:00<frosch123>what about sending fmsp to liquids terminal?
16:01<frosch123>what's the fmsp level in your game? too much? too little?
16:01<andythenorth>about right
16:01<andythenorth>it only comes from slag grinding plant
16:01<frosch123>hmm, i thought it would be too much with only one destination
16:02<frosch123>does any other economy export supplies?
16:02*andythenorth checks
16:02<frosch123>i mean most ports supply some supplies, so some economy should export them :p
16:02<andythenorth>I know :)
16:03<andythenorth>the ports aggregate :D
16:03<andythenorth>all the other cargos that get delivered to ports are combined to be supplies
16:03<frosch123>i wonder, is it possibly to turn the ports into some late-game thing
16:03<frosch123>imagine you have mines in the early game, but they never increase production
16:04<frosch123>while there are some hard to reach conditions for ports to import a ton of ore
16:04<frosch123>like, export lots of vehicles, get lots of ore
16:04<frosch123>export few things, get nothing
16:06-!-Alberth [] has left #openttd []
16:10<andythenorth>think it would need to be designed for that gameplay

17:41<FLHerne>Crossing the branch would be ugly, yes
17:43<supermop_home>might build a yard just past west edge of the screenshot
17:43<FLHerne>You could move the existing branch to the north, so it crosses the lake and joins the mainline between the claypit and Yen Dung
17:43<supermop_home>hmm yeah
17:44<supermop_home>I was thinking make the branch cross the river further south, so it swings by the brickyard
17:45<FLHerne> or so
17:45<FLHerne> rather
17:46<FLHerne>What's to the left?
17:46<FLHerne>Does the branch have to join the mainline where it does, or could it go via the brickworks and then at a nicer angle?
17:48<FLHerne> ?
17:53<supermop_home>and then dump clay and sand in a yard off the edge to the west, where another train will take it down the branch

17:54<supermop_home>coal comes from the branch to a steelmill to the west, so a realignment would allow some coal to get dropped at the brick yard
18:04<supermop_home>too complex maybe:

18:07<supermop_home>Samu how to connect more industries to my network in a way that doesn't look too ugly
18:10<supermop_home>FLHerne the only problem with your diagram is I hate having the loading station on the other side of the line from the industry
18:11<supermop_home>this line only sees one passenger train ever 36 days or so, so I can cross the mainline at freight speed somewhere
18:17<FLHerne>supermop_home: You can use those ISR conveyor-tunnel-entrances to make it look good

18:44<ST2>Samu: waterborne cargos are quite tricky - had you tested it with FIRS, for example
18:44<Samu>uhm... well, part of firs, yes, i'm not familiar at all with it
18:45<Samu>there were waterborne industries in it that don't have stations
18:45<supermop_home>I don't think that is true
18:45<Samu>that made me rethink how I was checking those stations
18:46<supermop_home>fishing grounds and dredging site both have station
18:46<Samu>v2 is supposedly handling it better
18:46<Samu>those industries / stations
18:47<Samu>it seems that 2 consecutive IndustryGfx == 24
18:47<Samu>dictacte whether the industry will attach a station
18:48<Samu>or not
18:48<Samu>it's a bit tricky
18:50<Samu>when the station is built, the IndustryGfx information is lost
18:51<Samu>on one of the tiles
18:52<Samu>i'm not 100% sure my new method is fool-proof, but should be okay

20:21<Samu>are u on windows, supermop_home, i can make a x64.exe, but if you're on linux, ubuntus or crap like that, I can't do anything
20:23<ST2>Samu: Debian or Ubuntu (debian based) are a bit away from Windows - and by that I mean Windows still have to work hard to get there
20:23<ST2>and I say that as a user of the three
20:25<Samu>supermop_home: are u home?
20:25<Samu>i gotta go sleep real soon
20:27<supermop_home>I use windows
20:27<supermop_home>I am about to go watch stranger things with my wife tho
20:27<Samu>oki, let me create this bin package thingg
20:27<ST2>supermop_home: which windows?
20:27<supermop_home>if you post a binary I'll give it a shot later
20:28<supermop_home>ST2 10
20:28<ST2>or you got too in the 1709 update doom?
20:28<ST2>W10, which version?
20:29<supermop_home>idk, I don't have that latest fall update yet though
20:29<ST2>ALT+R -->> winver
20:30<ST2>not ALT
20:30<supermop_home>ok where to take all these building materials
20:31<ST2>gives something like this:
20:33<ST2>but I guess Samu didn't get the update too
20:34<ST2>or he would be complaining about it also xD
20:36<ST2>note: the previous screenshot it's from this laptop; my home computer has same W10 update
20:37<ST2>lucky me, my work computer is W7 \o/
20:37<Samu>mine is 1703
20:38<ST2>so, no panning issues
20:38<Samu>got the bin ready, uploading it to forum, brb
20:39<ST2>actually I forced the updates on my W10 machines - after I saw the panning issue complaints
20:39<ST2>as you know, I want to have happy players ^^
20:41<Samu>it's an entire folder with subfolders, there are added strings, so they need to work together
20:42<ST2>Samu: what's the goal with those changes?
20:42-!-Guest7683 is now known as Prof_Frink
20:42<Samu>the goal is to ruin players who transport oil from oil rigs with trains
20:42-!-Prof_Frink is now known as Guest7687
20:43<Samu>and have it included in 1.8.0 or so I hope
20:43<ST2>Samu: and why you would want that?
20:43<Samu>because devs didn't do anything about it
20:43<ST2>as you said, you played on BTPro K1 server
20:44<ST2>had you seen any player taking oil from rigs with trains?
20:44<Samu>yeah, your implementation is fugly
20:44<ST2>I know
20:44<ST2>but, due the code limitations to keep it compatible... what was possible
20:45<Samu>I know what you mean, make it network compatible with 1.7.1
20:45<Samu>must have been a tough task
20:46<ST2>well, what we changed... it's compatible
20:46<ST2>guess you joined using a 1.7.1 client
20:46<Samu>yes, of course
20:47<ST2>it's only a function that checks distances between stations and industries
20:47-!-Samu [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
20:47<ST2>made it as a setting, to work among all our servers and spreading allowed

20:48<Samu>oops, closed window
20:48<ST2>it's only a function that checks distances between stations and industries
20:48<ST2>ofc, the code that it uses, depends of more functions for it
20:49<ST2>it's similar functions used for town protection (like in CB's)
20:50<ST2>but that's server specific's
20:50<ST2>I see no point on ruin people getting oil from rigs with trains - unless you come with an awesome idea and code
20:51<Samu>it's a setting
20:51<Samu>4 settings actually
20:51<Samu>there's some degree of customizability now
20:52<Samu>each behaviour can be enabled or disabled, on the fly
20:54<Samu>"accept non-industry cargo at industry station", "accept industry cargo at non-industry station", "supply non-industry cargo at industry station" and "supply industry cargo at non-industry station".
20:55<Samu>i'm off to bed
20:55<Samu>take care, all
