Description
What?
- Reduced wagon weight
- Increased cargo weight 1.2 tons per unit to 2 tons per unit
- Increased passengers weight 200kg per unit to 300kg per unit (50kg to 75kg per "simulated" passenger)
- Increased wagons lifespan to be closer to 60years.

Why?
- I believe full cargo trains weight 4x more than empty cargo trains in real life, but in vanilla game, full and empty trains weight change only about 20 - 50%
- This mod increases full cargo trains weight to change up to 100%, eg. 200 ton train can go up to 400 tons.
- Some wagons lifespan was only 30 years while others were 60 years, this mod increases wagon lifespan closer to the 60years, but not above 60.

Details?
- 2 tons per unit of cargo weight seems to be close to the max, since the road vehicles might not be able to go uphill if that is exceeded.
- Since the empty trains accelerate faster than full trains, this mod will propably screw up your min/maxed or too tight trainroutes.

Getting a Lua script error. Seems your mod is trying to index "capacities" and it is resulting in a nul value. Game crashes after acknoledgement of the error message. I would love to be able to use this mod. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong, or one of the 200 or so mods, that I'm using could be the culprit.

Hello Shot. I love this mod, many thanks for your work.
I have one conflict. When I try add POST mod (final ver.) from 'nown', then error lua script appears. Doesn't matter order of mods loading. Is there any chance to fix it by you? Or maybe I can disable part of it, but don't know exactly what. Thank you for reply.

Cheers, nice lua, I hope you don't mind if I modify it for my personal use :)
I think I'll set mine to as it is now in my base.lua - passengers 400, cargo 4000 weight, wagon weight not changed. That is more or less okI think. Real wagons weight 20-25t, then 18 or whatever x4t cargo weight and we have 90-120t loaded wagons as in real life.

Going from 110lbs to 165lbs per passenger? What is this, an upgrade from children to women? BAH! I want to haul those big fat Texans! :PresidentTrump:
