ID.png The ClimateType pseudo-type is actually a regular integer. Pseudo-types do not exist in Lua, they only serve a documentation purpose on the wiki!
  • DB.png Integers labeled as ClimateType corresponds to the ID column of the Climates XML table.

XML: the Climates table

Here are the ID and Type columns found in this table.

ID Type


Here are different ways to query the database to retrieve the ID from the type. Those examples will return and assign the integer value 0. See also GameInfo.

local id = GameInfo.Climates.CLIMATE_TEMPERATE.ID
local id = GameInfo["Climates"].["CLIMATE_TEMPERATE"].ID
local id = GameInfo.Climates{Type="CLIMATE_TEMPERATE"}().ID

Alternatively you could use the ID or the type to retrieve the value of the Description column. Those examples will return and assign the value TXT_KEY_CLIMATE_TEMPERATE.

local description = GameInfo.Climates[0].Description
local description = GameInfo["Climates"][0]["Description"]
local description = GameInfo.Climates{ID=0}().Description
