Cargo types in TTD

Definitions of cargo types used in TTD and the Patch

For setting the various action 0 properties of vehicles, various way of specifying the cargo type are used. Typically, there is one property that sets the default cargo type, and another property that sets the cargo types available for refitting in a bit mask.

The following table lists the values to use for these properties, as well as the values to use for action 3.

Column Name Usage
Type A Cargo bit Use this cargo type in action 3.

GRFv8 In GRF version 8 and above this type is also used for the 'default cargo type' of vehicles.

When using a cargo translation table, this is the position in the translation table. If there is no cargo translation table, the cargo bit is defined by property 08 for new cargos.

Bit value Add these bit values to find the value to give the refit mask property (this is -+1 << cargobit+-)
Type B Cargo slot GRFv7 For GRF version 7 an below use this cargo type to set the default cargo type of vehicles (note, this is climate dependent!).

GRFv8 For GRF version 8 and above this type is used nowhere, except in the cargo definition itself.

For new cargos this is the ID used in Action 0 and Action 3 of the cargo-defining NewGRF.

Note, when New Cargos are being used, you can only rely on Type A values when using a cargo translation table. Type B values depend on the actual NewGRF (and its version) defining the new cargos; so, unless you test for a specific (industry) NewGRF you cannot rely on any value for Type B.

GRFv7 For GRF version 7 and below that means, to be compatible to any new cargos, you have to set the default cargo of refittable vehicles to "first refittable". However, you can kind of rely on passengers being slot 0 and mail being slot 2.

FF n/a FF Use first [2] refittable cargo type as default cargo. See also vehicle refitting.
FE n/a n/a Used in action 3 for stations to disable default
FF n/a n/a Shown in purchase list
  1. Only in temperate climate, with the "moreindustriesperclimate" switch, i.e. disabled when "newcargos" is switched on.
  2. GRFv7 For GRF version 7 and below "first" means first wrt. cargo slot, type B. I.e. this is purely up to the cargo-defining NewGRF and cannot be influenced by the vehicle NewGRF.
    GRFv8For GRF version 8 and above "first" means the first wrt. (translated) cargo bit, type A. Thus the cargo translation table of the vehicle GRF defines the order.
