I discovered this game about a year ago and have been lurking in these forums since then. This is a great game and helpful forums. Thank you all!
Well, as a test project in learning Python I am writng a script that extracts data from the dat files and tabulate them into csv files (semicolon separated). The csv files can then easily be imported into spreadsheets like OpenOffice.org Calc or MS Excel for further analysis and help deciding what loco/bus/truck to buy and so on. Maybe they also can aid in further balancing the pakset?
Probably many of you already have these data tabulated somehow, but it is ok to share my csv files here for others to use? I think it is ok since the dat files are freely available in the svn repositery anyway, but I would like to ask first. The script itself is however too ugly to publish as it is a learning project, at least for now.
The data is from the dat files in pak64 svn r435 (110.0.1?), english version. It is raw data from the dat file (no compensation for bits_per_month and such). Currently there are data from buildings, factories, vehicles, goods and ways, but it is quite easy to expand to more types. It is possible to extract data from other paksets and/or languages as well as long as I can access the dat and lang files.
Please note that only "single value type" of data has been extracted so far. I do not know (yet) how to handle the "array type" of data, like input/output for the factories.

EDIT: zip file added.
EDIT 2011-03-27: zip file replaced. (Previous version ownloaded 11 times.)
- Corrected default value of vehicle.gear (1 -> 100)
- Removed all default parameters except vehicle.gear (leaving blank för missing parameters)
- Added the "array-type" parameters for factory inputs/outputs
- Added csv files for fields, citycars, tunnels, bridges, way-objects, roadsigns, tree and ground_objs
