Member Function Documentation

 function _MinchinWeb_C_::BuoyOffset ( )
inlinestatic

This is the assumed minimum desired spacing between buoys.

Returns
3

Definition at line 108 of file Constants.nut.

 function _MinchinWeb_C_::e ( )
inlinestatic

Euler's number (e = 2.718...) to 31 decimal places.

Definition at line 81 of file Constants.nut.

 function _MinchinWeb_C_::FloatOffset ( )
inlinestatic

Used to compare floating point numbers to determine if they are "equal".

Two floating point numbers (i.e. numbers with decimal points) are considered to be equal if they differ by less than this value.

Note
Floating points, due to the imprecision is translating binary numbers (as they are stored by the computer) to decimal numbers, and then performing math with these imperfectly translated numbers, can result in numbers than are otherwise equal, except for very small remainders. This is an attempt to sidestep this issue.
Returns
0.000,5 (or 1/2,000)
Todo:
Convert from an absolute number to a percentage.

 function _MinchinWeb_C_::IndustrySize ( )
inlinestatic

Industries are assumed to fit within a 4x4 box.

Returns
4

Definition at line 87 of file Constants.nut.

 function _MinchinWeb_C_::Infinity ( )
inlinestatic

A number close enough to infinity to work for our purposes here.

Returns
10,000
Note
Slopes are capped at 10,000 and 1/10,000
A tile that is a Manhattan Distance of 'infinity' tiles away will always be outside of the defined map.

Definition at line 53 of file Constants.nut.

 function _MinchinWeb_C_::InvalidIndustry ( )
inlinestatic

Number returned by OpenTTD for an invalid industry (65535)

Returns
0xFFFF

Definition at line 93 of file Constants.nut.

 function _MinchinWeb_C_::InvalidTile ( )
inlinestatic

A number beyond the a valid TileIndex.

Valid (or invalid, if you prefer) for at least up to 2048x2048 maps.

Returns
0xFFFFFF
Todo:
Check that this is still valid on 4096x4096 maps.
