A logical grouping of assets. KIND Asset-group assets are not typically visible within the Trainz user interface, but instead affect other placeable assets in various ways.
No additional tags are supported at the current time. An asset-group starts as empty of assets, but individual assets can assign themselves to an asset-group using their 'member-of-groups' container. An asset-group should not typically have any data in its own 'member-of-groups' container, although it is not an error to do so.
Once an asset of KIND Asset-group has been created, other assets can be assigned to the group by adding the asset groups' KUID to each asset's 'member-of-groups' container. It is strongly recommended that each new asset group is added to this documentation so that other users can understand how to use groups that you have created.
It is not recommended to create large numbers of asset groups simply for classification purposes, as the asset groups are meaningless or even counter-productive unless adopted as standard and used by a large number of content creators. For example, a new 'steam locomotive' asset group would be meaningless unless the majority of steam locomotives were updated to be members of the asset group.
Membership of a particular asset group has a meaning specific to that asset group- simply creating a new asset group and adding assets to it has no effect whatsoever on the simulation. Both script and native code can make use of known asset groups to imply particular meanings.
Surveyor currently uses the asset-group information when placing trackside objects, to determine whether the object can be placed on the target spline.
