Code build numberEdit
- The main enhanced Wikibook data tables corresponding to the N3V source page Version And Build Numbers, which includes release dates, and citations. page is found at
The Code build number or Trainz build version (two names meaning the identical 'tracking number') is a type of model number of the software, an unique software specific identifier that in Trainz practices— increments not only with 'named' main retail releases, but with each release for specific language groups, and by Hotfixes, as well as by Service_pack releases. As described in the Notes section below, it also changes in-house with software under development[note 1]
Initial Trainz code build versions are not released in initial retail release versions for all world wide languages at the same time, but these are produced as available translations, so typically, non-English releases lag by some months, but may have hot fixes or service packs already installed. As the translation needs are satisfied and an overall release stabilizes, subsequent service pack releases apply to those code build numbers and effectively combine language releases into a merged common product. At the end of the process, the final service pack produces a single stable code build version, creating the final corresponding Trainz (two digit) version number and corresponding identical Trainz-build tag level found in assets config.txt file.
Currently Supported ReleasesEdit
Trainz versions are known best by their 'Retail Release name', after which N3V Games/Auran, following general software industry practices subsequently release bug fixing hot fixes and usually a succession of service packs. The below table is for the most recent Windows release.

Notes, Footnotes & ReferencesEdit
Config.txt files are endemic and ever present in Trainz assets, for no asset can be defined without this type of Computer Science container. The keyword-value_of_key pairing must always be kept in mind in editing or creating Trainz content. The TrainzBaseSpec contains values and containers which are most common in asset defining config.txt files.
- In a December 2013 email, Trainz Version Manager James Moody stated that at times he did as many as five or six builds and related Trainz Installs a day.
