This patch adds an advanced game setting, listed under Limitations. It allows or disallows attaching multiple train engines to the same consist.
- it is defaulted to enabled.
- when loading savegames before this patch, it treats this setting as enabled.
- when attempting to join two train engines while the setting is disabled, an error message is displayed

Isn't multi-heading already a thing?

https://wiki.openttd.org/Multiheaded_trains

Is there a difference in the way this patch approaches multi-head trains?

I read the announcement as an addition to disable creation of multi-head trains.

I don't see why anyone would want to do this, though.

Possibly; it does appear to be a superfluous patch... The only use i can see it intended for would be prohibiting Multi-Head in Multiplayer Games; beyond that, there's certainly no single player use as you can simply choose not to multi-head...

Settings which are most useful in multiplayer and have little to no use in singleplayer aren't necessarily useless, though, as multiplayer is nonetheless a legitimate and relevant part of the game. :P

Well yeah, but why on earth would you want to disable multiheaded trains in mp?

That I do not know. A challenge, maybe? Some weird obscure play-style? Someone really hates things that have more than one head?

In any case, my remark was less about the actual usefulness of the patch/setting (and I love MH trains so it's definitely not for me), and more about the SP vs. MP argument. :P
