Maglev Track Set 2.2 (Released 27-07-2019)

Post by Erato » 05 Jun 2017 11:54

Maglev Track Set v2
This set is the second installment of the Maglev Track Set, a track set that allows the user to separate their various maglev trains on different types of tracks for extra realism. It is also possible to use this set solely to replace the default maglev tracks. This set includes tracks for the SC-Maglev, the Transrapid, the M-Bahn, the various Urban Maglevs around the world and the South Korean high speed maglevs. This trackset includes custom tunnel portals, custom fences and custom depots.

- All: Erato

Changelog:
2.2 (27-7-2019):
- Added: Hidden tracktype with code "TBAS", trains with this tracktype can run on both Urban maglev tracks and Transrapid tracks.
- Feature: Ground tile sprite on high speed tunnel tiles can be covered up to not cause a graphical glitch when deleted, for instance when Monorail Track Replacement is loaded. Default on when Monorail Track Replacement is loaded.
- Fixed: SUMA maglev trains not being compatible with Urban maglev tracks when Urban maglev tracks are set as MGLV replacement track.

2.1 (27-7-2018):
- Fixed: Name of SC-Maglev not showing properly.
- Fixed: Urban Maglevs loading the SUMA tracks and taking up 2 slots.

Changes since v1:
- Redone: All sprites for the tracks and the depots have been completely redone.
- Added: SUMA tracks for the South Korean High Speed Maglev trains, should anyone ever make a trainset with this train.
- Removed: Three Phase Medium Speed Maglev. Chinese Urban maglevs now use the universal "Urban Maglev Track".
- Changed: Trains now have names describing what trains run on it. This corresponds to the description in RIMS.
- Changed: All high speed maglev tracks now have the maximum speed of 1230kmh, or almost Mach 1.
- Changed: All medium speed maglev tracks now have the maximum speed of 210kmh, to take into consideration China's idea to make a 210kmh medium speed maglev train.

That looks pretty good! :bow:
You should get an existing track replacement mod, rip some code and have a preview for us.

I mean, I have a preview. Here you will see exactly what I meant with a track not showing up, and what I meant with the junctions looking terrible.

EDIT: you need the trains to have them show up at all.

The Linimo track is almost done! If you look closely you can see what I'm still missing.

Image

I drew inspiration from the SMITS NewGRF. The Transrapid and the Zhuifengzhe tracks will probably just be reskins of this track, as I am quite satisfied with the shape.

I also did the SC-maglev Depot:
Image
Originally there was going to be a lot more detail. Must've spent a few hours on that, only to find out that the game didn't like what I was doing. So I settled with this instead.

As always, feedback is very much welcomed.

Any thought of integrating MTS into MMT and enabling the tracks by parameter?

I probably won't. I want it to be possible to use MTS with sets other than MMT. Still trying to figure out how to make the tracks work with all sets other than MMT tho. :\

I'm just going to leave this here together with the current version of the Maglev Track Set and an accompanying MMT version.

Gotta study for finals and entrance exams so don't expect much more for a while. Please do continue to find problems and give feedback. I just won't be able to do a lot.

If at all possible, please take a look through the source, which is also among the attachments.

They aren't. They're just not very pronounced here. Might change that later.

Lately I've been working on Maglev Track Set v2. The first version had become a complete mess and I wasn't satisfied with what it had become, so I started anew.

[Survey has closed]

Soon I'll be uploading Maglev Track Set v2. I'm very satisfied with the results.

Differences with v1:
- Redone: All sprites for the tracks and the depots have been completely redone.
- Added: SUMA tracks for the South Korean High Speed Maglev trains, should anyone ever make a trainset with this train.
- Removed: Three Phase Medium Speed Maglev. Chinese Urban maglevs now use the universal "Urban Maglev Track".
- Changed: Trains now have names describing what trains run on it. This corresponds to the description in RIMS.
- Changed: All high speed maglev tracks now have the maximum speed of 1230kmh, or almost Mach 1.
- Changed: All medium speed maglev tracks now have the maximum speed of 210kmh, to take into consideration China's idea to make a 210kmh medium speed maglev train.
- Added: Custom fences.
- Added: Custom tunnel portals.
- Feature: Ability to turn fences off.
- Feature: Ability to switch which depot you want for what tracktype.

I discovered a small bug after wanting to play with this new set. Took me a while, but I managed to fix it.
If you're wondering why the SUMA tracks don't show up: At this moment RIMS and other maglev sets don't have any maglevs that run on SUMA tracks.

It's been exactly a year since the last update. I wanted to add a new feature to FRIMS, which required an update to MTS v2. In the process I fixed some existing issues.
