View Full Version : generating consist in portals

December 8th, 2014, 07:17 PM

I'm starting to work with Portals.

I'm editting a session and I have included the "Central Portal Control" rule, then I'm trying to add a consist but it is a boring process selecing the locomotive and one by one rolling stocks ( of course you can slect several of the same type). I have generated consists in surveyor that I would like to select like a whole.
Is there any shortcut to select those complete consists? and/or reduce the list in the "add consist" window?

I haven't used the CPC in a while but was a good rule...(buggy at times in sessions) but I suggest trying QUICK PORTAL MANAGER 2 lot easier to use and set up portals and consists...

The Portal Time table rule will let you use any consist in your surveyor list (you just can't be surprised by them, since they're on a schedule.

When using Central portal control, after you click on add new consist, You will get the box that you can choose locos and cars. Click on "add an existing saved consist". This lets you add a consist that you have previously saved.

Shiny! Didn't realize Central Portal Control had the same interface with the oh so useful "Add an existing Consist" and possibly more useful second column with the number of cars to insert. I may need to download an update.
