Filename syntaxes (or name formation) in Trainz assets are heavily restricted for compatibility reasons. As filenames are not displayed to end-users, there is no need for localization support (File and directory paths) or other format class characters.

Specifically, filenames within Trainz must obey the following rules:

  1. Filenames must not begin with a space (' '), a period ('.'), or a tilde ('~').
  2. Filenames must be at least one character long.
  3. Filenames must not end with a space (' ').
  4. Filenames should be kept to a reasonable length. No fixed length is currently enforced, however if compatibility issues arise at a later date N3V Games may add length limits.
  5. Smart quotes, accents, umlauts and other non-ASCII characters are disallowed.


Filenames must consist of the following ASCII characters only:
