Specifying fields for the factorylink

If the factory has outlying fields, these additional parameters specify how these fields behave.
Parameters
Meaning
Value
Format
max_fields maximal number of field tiles 36  number
min_fields minimal number of field tiles 10  number
production_per_field Production rate of a field tile number
probability_to_spawn Probability that a new field will be created when the factory is producing 10  number (100 represents a probability of 1%, 10000=100%)
fields Name of field kornfeld_1  must match existing field name


From version 110.0 (makeobj 51) on, more than one type of field may be specified for a factory, and furthermore fields will have storage capacity. This is how you will be able to specify that.

probability_to_spawn Probability that a new field will be created when the factory is producing 10  number (100 represents a probability of 1%, 10000=100%)

from Ver. 112.0
start_fields Number of some fields by create industry number


Parameters for permanent production increase (in version > 110.0.1)link

Factories without fields can increase their production, too. The expansion happens when factory is producing, in a similar way to the creation of additional fields.
Applies only to factories without field definitions.
Parameters
Meaning
Value
Format
expand_probability probability to expand value larger than 10.000 means: always expand when producing number
expand_minimum minimal expansion of production number
expand_range additional production increase: random number between 0 and expand_range number
expand_times maximal number of times the production increases number


Parameters for production increase due to passenger, mail, and electricity supply (in version > 110.0.1)link

Parameters
Meaning
Value
Format
electricity_boost Increase of production in permill if electricity is supplied default: 1000  number
electricity_amount Max electricity per production unit consumption default: 65535 number
passenger_demand Demand on passengers per production unit and time default: 65535 number
mail_demand Demand on mail per production unit and time default: 65535 number
passenger_boost Increase of production in permill if passengers arrived default: 0 number
mail_boost Increase of production in permill if mail arrived default: 0 number

If passenger_demand/mail_demand parameters are not specified (or set to 65535) then passenger_demand = pax_level, mail_demand = pax_level / 4 is taken. See also

Specifying a field objectlink

In order for a factory to be able to use fields, the field objects themselves have to be defined. Use these parameters to define a field object.
Parameters
Meaning
Value
Format
obj object type field exactly this text
name object name Image grain field_1  plain text
copyright name of the creator plain text
Image[0] Graphics for winter without snow Picture information
Image[1] Graphics for spring Picture information
Image[2] Graphics for summer Picture information
Image[3] Graphis for autumn Picture information
Image[4] Graphics for winter with snow Picture information


Graphics parameterlink


The graphical representation is specified by the BackImage parameters.



Detailed Explanationslink

Top



Image The Parameter namelink


This parameter determines the name of the object. It should not coincide with a name of the files object.*.pak in the used pakset folder.

back



Image The Parameter Locationlink


This parameter determines the construction site for the industry. Following values are permitted:
  • Land - built in countryside. Note, Location=Land with climates=water will force an industry on the shore.
  • City - built within city limits
  • Water - built on an open surface of water

from Version 120.4.1 ( Makeobj 60.2 )
  • river - one tile of factory adjacent to river tile ( ignored if there are no rivers on the map )
  • shore - one tile of factory on a sloped shore tile
  • forest - more than X trees on the tiles covered by the factory, X=area of factory ( ignored if there are no forests on the map )

back


Image The Parameter DistributionWeightlink


The parameter describes, how often the object appears. The greater the value, the more often the object appears.

The highest value amounts to 127.

End consumers are industries that only require incoming goods, but produce no goods themselves.

back


Image The Parameter Rangelink


This parameter indicates the range, in which the actual production rate of the industry lies.
  • minimal production rate = value “Productivity”
  • maximal production rate = value “Productivity” + value “Range”

The actual production rate of the industry can be further increased by supplying power, passengers, and mail (see above).

back



Image Parameters specifying the factory emissionslink


These parameters determine the emission of the industry. The parameters have following meaning:
  • Smoke - determines the kind of emission
    • The names of Smoke specified in the smoke.*.pak files can be used as values
  • SmokeTile - specifies which tile’s front corner is the starting point for the emission
  • SmokeOffset - specifies the actual point of emission as offset from the starting point
    • the first value gives the x-Position
    • the second value gives the y-Position, this value is lowered by 100
  • SmokeSpeed - specifies the emission speed

back



Image Parameters specifying goods used as raw material for the factorylink


These parameters specify which raw materials the industry needs to produce. All four parameters are required for each type of goods that the industry requires; and each set of parameters is associated with an index number given within square brackets, starting from 0. In the examples given below x is used as the index, but this MUST be replaced by the relevant index number.

  • InputGood[x] - gives the name, which must match an existing type of goods
  • InputCapacity[x] - how much of the goods that can be stored at the industry
  • InputSupplier[x] - specifies the number of suppliers
    • Value = 0 - each industry, which delivers the desired goods is selected as a supplier
    • Value > 0 - this number of suppliers will be built. If there already exists suitable suppliers, only the surplus number is built
  • InputFactor[x] - sets the relationship (percentage) between raw materials consumed (input) and commodities produced (output)
    • Value = 200: two tons of raw materials are needed to produce one ton of commodity
    • Value = 50: half a ton of raw materials are needed to produce one ton of commodity

back



Image Parameters specifying the output commodities produced by the factorylink


These parameters specify the goods manufactured by the industry. All three parameters are required for each type of goods that the industry produces; and each set of parameters is associated with an index number given within square brackets, starting from 0. In the examples given below x is used as the index, but this MUST be replaced by the relevant index number.

  • OutputGood[x] - gives the name, which must match an existing type of goods
  • OutputCapacity[x] - how much of the goods that can be stored at the industry
  • OutputFactor[x] - sets the relationship (percentage) between raw materials consumed (input) and commodities produced (output)
    • Value = 200: one ton of raw materials are needed to produce two tons of commodity
    • Value = 50: one ton of raw materials are needed to produce half a ton of commodity
