I can't wait to get this thing up and running.
The route looks absolutely stunning from all the screenshots. It will be nice to finally motor around it.
Thanks for all your hard work.
Oh lord.
I just got back from work and it's still downloading dependencies 2 hours later.
Guess it will be for tomorrow after school! :)

:edit:
Why can't the damn Auran servers ever connect!?

:double edit:
Is there any better way to get all the DLS content?
I'm struggling to find any time when these stupid Auran servers will work. I've tried for a few days now, and it always says the servers are full.
Would anyone be able to load all of the content for the EK3 map on megaupload or something similar?
I've got about half downloaded but the damn thing just won't finish the rest.
I would be greatly appreciative if anyone can, and if not, i will just keep at it.
Thanks guys.

Oh how i wish we could pack all the content in a giant cdp and distribute it with the route.  Problem is of course if that happened for every route you would inevitably be downloading the same pieces of content over and over and clicking on 'Skip' more often than 'Install'.  Which kinda brings us full circle back to the DLS idea.

The server is never full.  Well maybe the free download server is, but honestly if you are fair dinkum about Trainz get a FCT.  Worst case they work out well under 0.20c a day.  If you have a FCT and get 'Server Full log out of everything Auran including the old Black Page 04 DLS, and give it a few minutes before logging back in.  When you log back in re-enter your u'name and p'word manually, don't let it auto fill the blanks.  That almost always fixes it for me...

 O0 ...I agree with Dermmy.

The Download Station is only closed when they do upgrades.

A 1st-Class Ticket gets you back in business.  :headspin:

Add file C:\TS2009

Introduce your Internet Security software and Windows Internet Explorer to your various Trainz....exe Files.

So the Brew Crew gave you the stuff to do...can your computer handle it?  If you can install TS2009 without warnings, you can handle this route.

The Download Station is available to all subscribers regardless of FCT.  If you upload to the DLS, the only penalty in this world is that you cannot sell the assets afterward.

But Like Dermmy, their needs to be a group that has like interests for the Content Creator to successfully present to the Trainz Download Station.  Dermmy has maintained an exceptionally consistent profile on the Auran Trainz Forums.  So much content is created by folks that are not aware of the benefits of sharing to the DLS(and a lot of time that's a self-esteem deal, that met upon itself & crushed the dream of the Content Creator of the Future, (slowing down progress until the project was not finished).

I like the animated figures Dermmy found...they took some time because I wasn't keeping track of the language, but a lanuage translator I found on the Internet helps.

Here is a so-far example of a .pdf I'm working on...



On Further, I am as far as Dent Yard with the New Model Board for this route, with the Carr Fork Branch completed, have added mileposts, etc.  I have signaling to do...plus...

Very nice job!  What program did you use, I use Excel to make my track charts?

I'm really glad you made this!

 O0 Thanks Stealthstream,

I'm sure that if enough money was provided, SignalCC might talk...we already have enough information to make the route in Track Builder 3, including speed limits, signals, train properties & mine runs to have a pretty cool Train Dispatcher 3 route.

Hmm, how? When I tried it a while back, it wouldn't launch.
