Creating paksets


As well as expanding the existing Simutrans worlds (paksets), you can also build your own. The various objects (vehicles, buildings etc) are built the same way as an Addon, but you need enough of these to make a workable whole. A pakset is a collection of addons with few, or none, PAK files from other pakset. And that have all the needed PAK files to run SImutrans. Another needed files is menuconf.tab, it defines the menu layout.
A pakset could also have: translation texts to show the objects names in all languages, sounds to be reproduced in-game, scenarios with objectives to be completed and other config files.
