This page is a part of the Lua and UI Reference (Civ5).

ID.png The RouteType 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 RouteType corresponds to the ID column of the Routes XML table.

XML: the Routes 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.Routes.ROUTE_ROAD.ID
local id = GameInfo["Routes"].["ROUTE_ROAD"].ID
local id = GameInfo.Routes{Type="ROUTE_ROAD"}().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_ROUTE_ROAD.

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