Very nice. This can be very useful in city parks.
Im sure BJK will have some use of this.

I'm guessing this will be on the monorail track, then? Looks really good, and it should provide some variety in the transport rides.

Right you are :D!

It seems shiny, cities that use it like Tokyo tend to be dull. If you tint the windows and add an interior then this would be a fantastic CTR. :up:

That's just the render, In-game, I'll make it 'dull' :)

Instead of making an interior why dont you make a texture that looks like it got interior ? that would save alot of polys.
looks wonderful :)

Yeah I agree, if you could dull it down, kinda age the texture it would add more realism it looks really good don't get me wrong. it is just a suggestion.

Wow, just what we need! And would be perfect with dasmatze's subway, so we can have realistic tubes to!

First of all, I have to say, your picture does not show a 'Maglev'-train, but a 'Transrapid'. Here you can see a pic of a maglev. (http://www.trenddomaining.com/pics/maglev.jpg)

Anyways, your work is great, can't wait to see this train in RCT3 working.:up:

P.S.: philipman2000: Since the Transrapid/Maglev trains are magnetic trains, they're a bit faster than the french TGV.

Technically he is right tho. A Magnetically Levitated Train is called a Maglev. The Transrapid is is just the name of the German system. The picture you have put up is of a Japanese system. So in all ways you are both right.

If the PA High Speed Maglev system was running or even Built I would show you pictures of that saying " This is like an American maglev."

I really hope this project continues. I would like to see what A maglev would look like in RCT3.

Im looking forward to seeing this develop and using it in game.

Its about time a more realistic train for the monorail was made.

Will the strips be recolourble or is there other textures planned?

Wow, I must say this surprises me. Not only is there an interior it's better then what they call a Maglev in the Trainz Community. Trainz is a train simulator too so you would think it would be better, but sadly it doesn't even have an interior.

Whatever you want, its a car, you can always make your own CTR track.

That's a nice CTR, I've rode it two weeks ago (the Maglev train at Shanghai)! It's awsome, the speed 431km/h!
