Car Types in FYM .....

Prior to V4.20 it has not been possible to effectively control the loading of all cars such that the loads they carry are appropriate to both the source and the destination. i.e. it has been possible to load Aircraft Fuel at a Phosphate Mine and ship it to a Food Processing Plant - a complete mis-match of source, commodity and destination. V4.20+ seeks to control this effectively by establishing Industry Specific Cars.

Cars with a Primary Index can be set explicitly on any un/load siding using FYMMap. This means that such cars can be created on map (on that siding) or created via Local Delivery. This will obviously require map changes. Until the maps are changes cars with a Primary Index >25 will un/load as defined by their Secondary Index.

Cars can only be created on maps where their primary index is explicitly defined.

So the car 'Flat, Garbage can un/load on any siding where the car Flat, 60' can un/load - but it cannot be created there.


Industry Specific cars are sat so they will only un/load on sidings assigned to spcific Industries through the car type assignment of sidings in FYMMap. Basically this is how FYM currently works all that is changing is that some sidings will have specialist (In FYM terms) cars assigned to them.

Mechanical/Physical variation cars cannot be set explicitly using FYMMap. They can be created on sidings/maps where their 'Primary Link' is defined. They will also un/load on any siding/map where their 'Secondary Link' is defined.

All Secondary Indices and Links have been changed to '1' (No Secondary).
