Industry data typesEdit

KIND Industry provides the basis for interactive assets such as factories, grain silos and passenger stations, or any other activity that involves loading onto, or unloading from, a trains cargo carrying traincars. Industries use processes and queues to manage the loading and unloading activity, as do interactive freight vehicles and some locomotive types.

KIND HierarchyEdit

Parent ClassesEdit

  • kind scenerywithtrack —Industries without track attached nor interactive behaviour are just buildings, a scenery categorized asset. When made into a dynamic programmable interactive industry, the parent type is SceneryWithTrack.

Child ClassesEdit

  • kind product — without this type, which includes passengers, there would be no reason for carrying anything, nor need of railways.

Sister ClassEdit

  • kind traincar — On a railroad simulation, industries need rolling stock to move product and feedstock into and out of the plant. Both rolling stock and industries are thereby tied by the daughter level data type kind product, for it is difficult to unclog the pipes emptying a tank car when it is filled with Coal chunks, and fuel oil and acids spill off the odd flat car.

Supported TagsEdit

kind industry supports all of the kind scenerywithtrack tags, and adds the following tags.

processesEdit

Type: Process element container
Desc: Contains one or more process elements. Each process element provides information about the process, including duration, start status, and the input and output queues associated with that process.


Example Config.txtEdit

Below is a sample config.txt file for an industry asset, with the standard tags excluded for brevity. This particular example is for a simple coal mine which takes in diesel fuel and outputs coal.

Tags of the TrainzBaseSpec would be included here in a config.txt file, then
