Scripting in Trainz A New Era SP2 and beyond
With TANE SP2 and beyond, we are introducing some major differences in the way routes are loaded and saved. Since we are moving towards information being streamed in as required, scripts will need to be updated to handle these new methods.
Here are some links that will assist scripters in discovering more about the new features. We will update the reference information over time, but meanwhile, feel free to update the wiki yourself with examples of your work.
- Asynchronous_Route_Streaming - An overview of route streaming and how it affects script
- Category_List - Lists asset category codes, which are used to identify or search for assets by type/capability
- Session_Rule_Implementation - A script-focused overview of correct Session Rule behavior
