  • @cernel Are there any places this is an actual problem? Is it actually confusing?

    'cargo' is a useful homogenizing term. If we talk about transports being able to transport either things like 'aa guns' or 'infantry', and it has a certain cargo capacity, we can refer to the 'aa guns' and 'infantry' both as having a cargo requirement.

    If we instead said that the transport had a troop capacity or a cargo capacity, I don't see the value in that distinction. It further gets confusing whether then considering if tanks require troop capacity or cargo capacity.

    Renaming terms is a high effort activity. Particularly so because there is a reasonable chance this will break save games.

    FWIW, 'cargo' may refer to people in some cases. EG: "Precious cargo" almost exclusively refers to humans (usually babies or young children) and/or their pet animals.

    Overall, my 2 cents is that the term 'cargo' is pretty descriptive, universal, and is not terribly confusing.

    @cernel Meaning that saying that these units are cargo is about the same as saying that these units are embarked (except that only the second sentence is correct if the unit is an infantry or such).

    @ubernaut A participle is a verbal, or a word based off of a verb that expresses a state of being, like a word like "cargo" does.
