IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH USING MLM !!!

1st : MLM dev. uses a independant maglev waytype which is avaible ONLY after version 100 of Simutrans so MLM won't works in an earlier version (99.17, ...)

_ MLM dev. is designed for standard pak128 (not for pak128.britain or others pak128 ...).

_ Simutrans crashes when I build a depot.
=> Please download a recent nightly version of Simutrans.

_ I haven't anything in maglev toolbar.
=> check you have at least way.magnetic.pak in the folder pak128, if you don't have, download MLM dev. and copy all its files in pak128.
=> first maglevs objects are avaible from 2003, check if you obey the timeline and if the timeline is at least in 2003.

_ I have another problem :(
=> Please report it in this topic after reading other problems.

Very nice, looking forward to making use of this.  :)

Seems very good! Hope it can be included in the main pak128.
And is it a separate system from monorails?

Apparently it will be maglev_track - which is different from monorail.

It's different, that's why you have to activate maglev tools in menuconf.tab.


I hope so  ;D

I think completely finish this set in ... 3 or 4 days.

I made a huge mistake : all vehicles are compiled with "waytype=monorail_track"  :-X
I change this immediately and update file.

sorry sorry sorry sorry

EDIT : file replaced

Wow.  Those really do look great.

Nice to see a finished release :) I like the signal gantries especially, very futuristic looking.

Why not try playing Simutrans online? See the Game Servers board for details.

Not yet ! There are some improvements to make ...

I don't like quoting of picture replies.

So I write this: it looks well but only TransRapid TR-08 is very nice and mirror of real one as it can be - but I don't know anything about other ones (in spite of I am interested in trains - somebody needs something illegal to be happy, I need only looking at some trains - mainly some new or reconstructed czech ones - but international train called Hungaria or Vindobona is very nice too).

At all: maglev track is looking well but maglev trains are not - excepting named TransRapid TR-08. Original project was not so good as it is. Original train was no nice for me - because it was too cornered (excuse me my english).

gauthier

I know it that's why I'm improving their look.

Other trains can not be mirror of real one because they don't exist, It's the future and I like creating a new style otherwise all vehicles will look like themselves.

Sturmfeder

Great job on this!  I can't wait till the final release. Also, is the way type maglev_track or something else? I have a few vehicle add-on ideas for this already.

gauthier

QuoteAlso, is the way type maglev_track or something else?
it's waytype=maglev_track

That's OK. I thought they are not mirror of real ones - but I don't know how far is development of japanese project of maglev (I think in real world, not in game - there is not maglev project included anyway).

I started doing some of the JR Maglev trains a while ago - but I haven't come very far yet.

Great
I Will try it immediately


gauthier

Don't hesitate tell me here bugs that you may see  ;)

I have forgotten to say it : megnetic depot only works with r1973 (and probably higher).

Beder

Hello,
i tried it and i saw some bugs:

- Special Construction Tools:
SNFOS_glass-corridor  hasn't any picture.. you just see the name but you don't know how it will look like.


The Bridge only starts from the normal tracks, not from the elevated. why not? It should be possible to get a bridge started from an elevated track.



Then i found another bug: If i want a station to transport goods, i have to build a warehouse close to it and also on the receiving site. Then i start a transporting maglev, but whatever i do: if i click on the warehouse, simutrans sdl r1994 crashes.

Sorry for my bad English. I'm really tired ;-)

DirrrtyDirk

About the bridge: that's normal simutrans behaviour with elevated ways - has been like that for a long time (see monorail) - so that's not gauthier's bug.

And by the way: you can look on one of my finished projects of bridge for classic trains - it is in czech part of forum - exactly in topic Nová grafika pro pak128 - or you can search for my replies but you cannot understand of most of my replies becuase they are written czech.

Recently I sent VS files of that bridge for creation of *.pak file. So I hope he will make it soon.

My drawing abilities are short in spite of those pictures could seem good and so I will draw only some buildings and bridges. But now I am encouraged to prepare track for japanese maglev - but it could be similar to maglev in TTD. It is clear japanese maglev has to have quite else track than european TransRapid.

As I just answered to your pm: don't bother - it's already available here.

sorry ... will be repaired in final release probably this week-end.

It's normal you have to build warehouse, it's more realistic  ;)
but for the bug I can't do anything for you, you have to signal the bug on the adapted part of the forum.

Did you install "symbol.MaglevStop.pak" ?
I don't know gauthier's MLM set includes it or not, but it needs to open station window without crashing.

I attached "symbol.MaglevStop.pak" which Frank made it.


DirrrtyDirk

Actually this needs to be included in pak128 soon... (as well as the one for narrowgauge)

Sorry everybody ... I have more much work than I planed so final release will be on line in a couple of weeks.
I will do as fast as I can, sorry again.

Wow :o. Now that's the future of trains 8).

Good work overall, gauthier ;).

Thank you but it's too much early for say it, it's not finished yet  :D

other projects :
_ TGVs, RER, TER, Corail, French engines, RATP buses.
_ high speed trucks

High speed trucks: they are needed but they could be useless if no high speed tunnel will be available (80 km/h is very low speed if  many buses and some trucks can go faster than 100 km/h). Mainly trailers for raws as coal, iron ore and so on are needed because last of them is available only before year 1980 (or something about, I am not sure).

I would like what ones are RER, TER, Corail and RATP buses.

TGV:
current version of TGV Duplex is terrible. Weak engine and impossibility of assembling of more trains into one unit.
TGV "Atlantic type" is very good but it has weak engine too -> but possiblity of assembling multiple units is overriding weak engines.

ICE: current version could be good but it is only one of many versions - three are at least if I will count only shapes of train, not type of engine (diesel or electric).

... but object of this reply could be base for next topics more than common reply to this topic about MLM. So I am sorry for this.

You should think about opening a different thread for these projects, since this one here is about maglev (or gauthier's MLM to be precise)...

I make french transports for the moment ...

I keep you informed about project progress :
Most of vehicles have been remade, most of the changes are anti-aliasing. Only Cirrus (31 vehicles ...) has not been changed yet.

Work left :
_ Remake AMT and fix problems with other ways.
_ Weak the texture effect of tunnels
_ Add a texture for elevated signals
_ Look for improvements for station halls.
