X, Y, Z metallicity values used

Can I know what are the X, Y, Z values used for gas in the Illustris TNG sims?

Technically these vary per gas cell, and are contained in the PartType0/GFM_Metals field.

Depending on application, you can always use the approximation X=0.76 and Y=0.24. These would be the initial values, which would be lower at later times for non-zero metallicity (depending on cell).
