This switch combines TTD's monorail and maglev track systems into a unified maglev system. The rationale behind it is that Transport Tycoon's monorail seems to be modelled after the German "Transrapid", which is actually a maglev (magnetic levitation) system as well.
This switch works differently, whether the
(see Electrified Railways) is on or off. For
it can take the following parameters:
unifiedmaglev 1: Convert all maglev engines to monorail
unifiedmaglev 2: Convert all monorail engines to maglev
unifiedmaglev 3(default): No conversion, keep two seperate systems
The conversion of the engines only applies to new games, or if you use Cht: ResetVehicles.
In all of the three cases, you can buy monorail engines in maglev depots and vice versa. Wagons are not affected.
In the first case however, the maglev construction option will not appear, because there are no maglev engines (but if it appeared before, it'll stay). In the second case, the monorail construction option will not appear.
electrifiedrailway is set to
on, all monorail engines are converted to maglev
(like option 2 above) and monorail wagons are made unavailable. In this case, the parameter
selects how the maglev system will look like:
unifiedmaglev 1(default): Use TTD's monorail graphics to display the maglev system
unifiedmaglev 2: Use TTD's maglev graphics to display the maglev system
electrifiedrailway on, if you set
off, TTDPatch will change it to 1 internally.
