Maglevs for pak128
« on: October 04, 2011, 05:49:40 PM »
A few year ago I posted my maglev for simutrans ( http://archive.forum.simutrans.com/topic/03615.0/index.html ) and since there I had not enough time for Simutrans. Now I wanted to refresh myself. I noticed that there aren't any maglev vehicles, tracks in official pak128, and addons are not enough popular so I decided to recreate my first addon.

This is maybe ugly but it worked in the past. My goal for now is to create depot and simple signals. I would appreciate any help. Later I will polish graphics and parameters. All my work is free to use and I'll post all raw materials.

"Usable" pak

All raw files:

In previous version I used "rail" track.

bobik314/Bobikus (or may I use real name - Aleksander?), there is thing I don't understand: why so late intro_year of most vehicles?

Graphics for trains is quite good ... excepting that pink one - that colour is something I wish you would change. And some vehicles need change of waytype - from track to maglev_track.

Graphics for track is horrible. I think you would try to download maglevs by French user Gauthier - and use them as pattern for future development (I created some ones too but .....)

And depot is another thing that deserves change.

You/everyone may use all nicknames and real name :]

All values are little unbalanced, and I'm gonna fix it soon. Theese vehicles are planned to be in "phases"/"groups"
- prototype - early available, not so efficient, speed less than avg.
- economic - available after prototype "phase", there should be available new economic vehicle in 2020 (and in ...) and in 2080 - super economic, first one has speed less than prototype
- fast - very fast, efficient between prototype and economic, available from 2040, not suited for short routes

I'm aware that my graphics skills are less than average, but.. there's no competition in maglevs yet ;)

Waytype - it's my bad, early deployment. There would be version for 'track' and for 'maglev_track'. Track upgrade issue and lack of depot and signals.

I'll check for Gauthier's tracks.

Hi
I suppose you did  install this pak as addon of pak128. So you must have now a new toolbar after clicking on "maglev" icon :




 You must create tracks of maglev and, of course, connect an maglev garage. So now if you use this depot, you can choice engine and cars to create a new line of maglev.

Enjoy
