    Default DARv3 FIX Files

    Unzip attachment. Replace the two activity files, and add the one consist file to the consist folder in you Trains folder.

    DARv3_FIX.zip

    Please and thank you!

    V3 Downloaded and unzipped but where is the stock? There's no mention of it, unless I'm being REALLY thick, and it's obvious from the Work orders there ought to be a whole heap of stuff. A search of the file library "DAR" only brings up 3 files and none of those are recent.

    BTW Paul any links to reference sites for the DAR because the picture libraries don't yield much. As far as I can see they had a couple of S3's replaced by SW1200RS's and a couple of RDC's. Did they have their own freight stock?

    Look in the DARv3 ACTIVITIES Folder, file name is: RequiredRollingStockv3.txt

    Aside from a few cabeese back before WW II and some passenger cars lettered for the DAR until the end of steam, all other "home" cars were Canadian Pacific.

    Look at the Required Rolling Stock test file in the Activities folder as LLaning08 suggests.

    Thanks Lawrence, thanks Paul. Hidden in plain sight!

    I figured it must be there. Perhaps a separate "Documents" or "Required Stock" folder would be useful as there is a lot of provided info in txt files?

    Hi Paul,

    I noticed that "cp_mw.zip" is missing from the list of required rolling stock.

    Hi Paul,

    Many thanks for releasing another brilliant route, printing off the work orders I noticed that M21 doesn't have a work order and the file mentions switching setting out some cars in Brooklyn. Just wondering what cars they are.

    Thanks Again,

    Andrew

    Well I'm still trying to correct Error reports from Conbuilder and so far I've discovered a good few more items missing from the Stock Required List and several Consist Errors because somehow the consists call for the same item actually contained in different named folders. I spent the whole morning tracking stuff down so here are some of the items missing. Fixes for the Consists will take longer and hopefully someone else is interested enough to have a go at fixing them. The Read me also needs to be clear that the DEFAULT GP38 MUST be in the Trainset Folder.

    Missing Zips found by Conbuilder.

    Firstly there's an error in the MSTS RDC zip.

    It should be cpr-pc-rdc-1-1.zip

    The following aren't in the list.

    cndcpk06.zip
    fg_ge45tr_1.zip
    cn_cofc_flats.zip
    amcpk16.zip
    cn_mlwsm.zip
    amcpk12u.zip
    amcpk12_fix.zip
    amcpk12_fix2.zip

    Several consists call for models from differently named folders to those you'll get from the downloads. Still trying to fix those.

    The trouble is that many "Faulty Activities" are mainly due to stock and consist errors so until I've fixed all the stock the Activity errors will have to wait.

    It seems a shame that the stock couldn't have been independently tested and zipped up as a complete stock pack? The route looks gorgeous but having to spend hours getting the stock to work is rather a downer.

    As I understand it Open Rails "ignores" (some) errors that Kill MSTS stone dead but some of us are still using AE to create paths and simple acts so getting the errors fixed would be a help.
