.... so I can send you a beta if you're interested.........

Paul, thanks for the feedback. I would certainly be interested in a beta of the tram wire items you mention please for me to experiment with.

In addition to the items you have already mentioned, I'm also looking at using the trackside object tram poles on http://tramtrainz.net/trat.htm in conjunction with Rolf's combined track and wire.


I want to know where did you get the Hauptbahnhof?

For the Hauptbahnhof in my fictional tram route I have used "Budapest Terminal East". You can download it here: http://trainz.luvr.net/projects-view.php?pid=735&tab=f :)

Good morning Paul.

The "V6e" will be compatible with this line ??

I thought I would post a few screenshots of my latest work in progress; a city tram layout for the Hamburg V6E trams. The layout is purely fictious and is an extension of the V6E demo layout provided with the excellent payware V6E trams (http://www.v6e.de).

Looking good there Mark. I always thought that programme could have been a wee bit bigger as what was there was very good. Will be looking forward to your finished project in due course. Very promising.

Very nice screen shots

Keep up the great work

What will be its status "All On DLS", "some items not on DLS"

Thanks for the kind comments.


What will be its status "All On DLS", "some items not on DLS"

Most of the items are available on the DLS, although many items are from other sources such as www.trsbingen.de (http://www.trsbingen.de/), www.trsberlin.de (http://www.trsberlin.de/), and http://www.trainzdepot.net (http://www.trainzdepot.net/). If you have got "Altstadtlinie" by Connyxy, you will have most of the content required.

Now for a few more screenies:

http://www.mark.hodgkinson2.btinternet.co.uk/images/V6E-5.jpg
A shortage of serviceable trams lead to previously withdrawn V6E 3601 (with adverts removed) being brought back into service. It is seen operating line 2 at Brandenburger Tor.

http://www.mark.hodgkinson2.btinternet.co.uk/images/V6E-6.jpg
Another view of V6E 3601 from the top of Brandenburger Tor.

V6E 3601 leaves the short section of line through Stadtpartk heading for the City Hall at Veddel.

http://www.mark.hodgkinson2.btinternet.co.uk/images/V6E-9.jpg
Line 1 terminus at Rödingsmarkt.

The tram name station sign displaying "Rödingsmarkt" is called "tramschild1" by Connyxy (kuid:69953:442119) and is included as part of a pack called "Haltestellenset2.cdp". It is available from www.trsbingen.de (http://www.trsbingen.de) (you will need to register).

The tram line number sign is called "Zastávkový sloupek AN" by Josh and is available from http://tramtrainz.net.

I'm leaving the wires to the last job as they take ages and you have to make sure you're totally happy with the track layout before you start. It can get very messy with all the splines!!!

Unfortunately, as my route includes the original payware "V6E Demo" route by Rolf Westphalen in it's entirity, I cannot upload my route to the DLS. :o Sorry guys, I think I confused people with my first post. My route is not an add-on to the "V6E Demo" route; what I meant to say is that I used the "V6E Demo" route as a starting point and began extending the lines.

Hi,

since all scenery objects of the route should be on the DLS, so you should be able to upload the route. I will talk with Rolf about it... .

But I must confess, I have no idea, if the "special triggers" for the tram stop and the signs can be found on the DLS. I will have a look... .

OK, I will await further instructions from Rolf and yourself.


But I must confess, I have no idea, if the "special triggers" for the tram stop and the signs can be found on the DLS. I will have a look... .

The "special triggers" are not on the DLS. However, this shouldn't be a problem as if you don't have the V6E payware, they will just be missing assets and won't appear.

Just thought I would post a few more screenies showing how my route extends from the original "V6E Demonstration" route:

http://www.mark.hodgkinson2.btinternet.co.uk/images/V6E-14.jpg
The original "V6E Demonstration" route terminus square is shown to the left, with my line extensions to the right.

http://www.mark.hodgkinson2.btinternet.co.uk/images/V6E-15.jpg
Here is the main junction on my tram route where the lines split in three different dirrections.

The main route to Veddel, Stadtpartk and Hauptbahnhof goes off to the left. The straight on route goes a short distance to Rödingsmarkt.

coerni
September 9th, 2008, 06:17 AM
Hi,

Rolf will put the missing scenery objects and triggers to the DLS. So it should be possible to use the layout without the paywarepack with other trams and without missing objects. We see no problem to upload the modified demolayout to the DLS... .

The traffic lights don't work, but there is traffic on most of the roads.

I've spent a couple of hours this evening tidying up the Veddel area of my route near the City Hall.

As you can see, I've added an intermediate tram terminus and cafe:

Hi mark, looks like you are putting to-gether a fine layout,..I too am just starting to produce a layout along similar lines for the v6e tram,... unlike your layout , I will be building a totally all new layout and not incorporating the demo layout. What I am interested to know is whether you cloned the demo layout and then used the clone to add your new areas , or just added to the demo download ? I believe that cloning anything copies the item and adds your kuid to the new config. file but have not found anybody who has cloned anything...... anyway congrats. on your layout so far, looking great, am not far away from S.Yorks. I am in Warrington close to the wcl.....regards

I'm pretty certain that Paypal works in any currency. I guess you'll need the use of a credit or debit card... I'm pretty sure that Rolf speaks some English, so if you can't make sense of the German on the site he may be able to respond to an e-mail.

I have now created a route map for my Hamburg V6E Tram Route which you can download here:

You will note form the map that I have used the place names available on the V6E blinds for my routes. Before I get any comments, please note that my map doesn't represent Hamburg in any way and is purely fictious.

Work is still progressing on the route, but I hope to have it on the DLS by Christmas.

Glad you liked the map Tom - incidentally, in case you hadn't already guessed, the hashed out terminus areas for tram routes 2, 3, 5 and 6 are all off-map areas with no scenery purely for autopilot trams.

The biggest job left to do on the route is all the wires! I keep putting it off for some reason. When you've got lots of wire splines on top of one another it can become a nightmare.

My self I use a simplified version, one its easyer for me and less problems for the computer to draw. one exmaple is on corners is one at right angles to each track as normal then only one on a angle to hold up the curved wire to a pole or building on the other corner.

I noticed that you're modelling your layout so as to make it look like a bit of West Germany before the Berlin wall was pushed over. I will note that at that time Deutsche Post AG did not exist, instead there was the Bundespost.

Just in case you were wondering;)

.......I will note that at that time Deutsche Post AG did not exist, instead there was the Bundespost...........

Thank you for the information. I will do another re-skin of the Mercedes L319 van in Bundespost colours. I'm I correct in saying that the horn logo was slightly different from that used today by Deutsche Post?

I'm about half way through doing the overhead wires on my tram route using the method used by Rolf in his original V6E demo route. For those of you who haven't seen this route, the wire and support wires are all seperate splines not associated with the track. I have continued with this method for my route extension, but it is proving very tricky because of the large number of splines I'm having to put on the top of each other.

Today I have noticed that Rolf has uploaded to the DLS some new tram tracks (some which include the wire):

http://www.auran.com/TRS2004/DLS_packcontents.php?AssetPackID=16400

Now my question is, what method is best? On the one hand, with seperate overhead wire splines, the wires look more realistic as they are in straight lines but it takes an age to do, especially fixing up the supporting catenary wires. On the other hand, combined wire and track is less time consuming, but doesn't look as realsitic on curves because the wire forms a perfect curve.

Also, does combined track and wire use more system resources than seperate track and wire?

I thought I would gauge your thoughts and ask for your feedback before I do anything drastic with my route like relaying all the track with Rolf's new track.

NormP
November 15th, 2008, 03:48 PM
Mark.
I would go for the track with overhead wire attached every time.despite your aversion to the curves not looking realistic (too perfect) nothing beats the sight of the trolly pole following the O/Head ALL the time.
Yes I know just how much time will be consumed changing the track (been there done that), but you have allready found out the trouble involved placing OH seperately.

Norm.

paulzmay
November 15th, 2008, 08:54 PM
I've done both - built in overhead wire is certainly easiest, but it's probably only worthwhile with a proper tracking overhead pole (I don't think that Rolf's do this). The issue with the built-in wire is that it can be difficult to make it look convincingly supported on corners. These are a few examples using built-in wire from my Westhaven Route (WIP):

They use Motorman1066's pull-offs and line hangers for 6.4m overhead, which are trackside objects (also with a scenery version). He has given me permission to upload a version lowered to suit European trams (which should match the V6Es), so I can send you a beta if you're interested.

I've also been playing with another method of doing overhead, using waygauges for both track and wire, and maximum use of trackside objects for supports. Corners are still a bit of a labour, but trackside modern style pull-offs help with this. The following thumbs illlustrate what can be done (note that the line hangers are by Motorman1066, and the poles by Andi06, used as attachments to save on manual placing):

The route in the first 5 pictures is on the DLS in an earlier form as 'Westhaven Trams 1-1'. Neither the update, nor the other route are ready to Beta yet. I will be looking for someone to beta test the overhead in the second set of pictures soon.

I don't know what happended last night, but I appear to have gone back in time to 1970 when the V6E's were still operating (see the first page of this thread):eek:

Anyhow, to avoid confusion, here's my post again, hopefully appearing in date order this time:


.... so I can send you a beta if you're interested.........

Paul, thanks for the feedback. I would certainly be interested in a beta of the tram wire items you mention please for me to experiment with.

In addition to the items you have already mentioned, I'm also looking at using the trackside object tram poles on http://tramtrainz.net/trat.htm in conjunction with Rolf's combined track and wire.


I want to know where did you get the Hauptbahnhof?

For the Hauptbahnhof in my fictional tram route I have used "Budapest Terminal East". You can download it here: http://trainz.luvr.net/projects-view.php?pid=735&tab=f :)

I am once again assuming that you're layout, and thusly the repainted bits to go with it, are in some capacity meant to replicate Hamburg before the Berlin wall was pushed over. If that indeed is the case, the license plates on all the vehicles you're using need to have pre-1994 German license plates, like this one:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/93/Plate-KA-RR232.JPG
You might want to change the registration seal to that which is used for Hamburg

There are a few exceptions to this rule. Vehicles owned by British soldiers in the British occupation zone were, as far as I'm aware, no different than normal British license plates. The only other thing you might want to make note of is that the postal vehicles need to have "BP" at the beginning, German military vehicles need to have "Y" and all German railroad vehicles (Bundesbahn ones) need to have "DB" at the beginning. And yes, if it hasn't yet occured to you, I am a rivet counter:p

Thanks for the information WileeCoyote. If I get chance I may do revised versions of the re-skins with pre-1994 plates, but to be honest I haven't being paying that much attention to detail.

The only thing that is payware are the actual V6E trams - www.v6e.de (http://www.v6e.de)

All the scenery items in my route are freeware.

Most of the scenery used is on the DLS so CMP will pick these up automatically. However, I have also used content which is not on the DLS from such sites as www.TRSBingen.de (http://www.TRSBingen.de), www.TRSberlin.de (http://www.TRSberlin.de), www.trainzdepot.de (http://www.trainzdepot.de) and www.tramtrainz.net (http://www.tramtrainz.net).

Is it worth posting a full list of required content now so that people are able to acquire it before I release the route?

Hi Mark,
I have just been reading this thread and your posts regarding your concerns about curved overhead in attched track/overhead assets not looking authentic. Here is a sample of customising I have applied to NormP's Surfside Trams layout. Still not yet convinced? I wish it would have been as easy to hold the trolley wire in position while all the spans were attached in real practice. (I wouldn't suggest hanging boat's ATLS traffic signals off the span wire in the real world though.):hehe:

Hi Mark,

Motorman, I appreciate your post regarding the overhead wires. What are the span wires you are using? They look fantastic! Looking at your shots, I think you have a valid point regarding curved overhead. However, as I have already completed the overhead wires on half of my route using separate wires as per Rolf's original V6E route, I think I will continue with this method throughout. If/when I should start a new route I will use the combined track/wire.

Hi i have been playing around with the V6E pack and i am having trouble working out what each of the triggers do... some i get it like the stop and the block sections... but what are all the little triangle ones at points and along the track and is there an order they need to go in etc when running...

Also does anything change if you change the file name or the pic that is on the triangles??

And can you anyone give a run down what everything means when you select each item when it has options with the (?) button

ta muchly :)

MarkHodgkinson
January 7th, 2009, 03:58 PM
... but what are all the little triangle ones at points and along the track and is there an order they need to go in etc when running...

Most of the triggers are explained in the following English manual:

http://www.v6e.de/Handbuch_V6E_en.pdf (http://www.v6e.de/Handbuch_V6E_en.pdf)

The only one that is not covered is “Strab Rollbandsteuerung” (the green triangle), which was added to the V6E pack as part of Service Pack 1. This trigger sets the route number and destination of the V6E trams and can be either set to automatically change the route and/or destination of every tram that passes over the trigger (setze immer) or just trams in autopilot (setze nur autopilot).

If you open up the V6E demonstration route as an example of how to use the triggers, I’m sure you will pretty quickly get the hang of it.


... Also does anything change if you change the file name or the pic that is on the triangles??

I don't understand why you would want to do this as all the triangle trigger items are invisible when in driver?


... and can you anyone give a run down what everything means when you select each item when it has options with the (?) button

The best way to understand the options is to write down the words and use a German – English online translator as I did.

With the points (?) option box “Weiche aufschneiden” ticked means that the points will automatically set for a tram approaching the trailing end of either slip. Also, option box “auf rollband reagieren” ticked is for facing points when you want to automatically direct trams on one route left and other routes right. The sub option “nur fuer KI-Fahrer” ticked means that the point switching is only for trams in autopilot mode. “Links” is left and “Rechts” is right. With the option set on “Links” the points will direct all trams left unless they fit the criteria you list below this option. The tram routes you list will go right. Appropriately, with the option set on “Rechts” the opposite will happen.

Hope that helps; with a little bit of playing around you’ll soon have the hang of it. :)

Thanks for the reply it helps heaps... will see what i can do.


The reason i am changing the image and name is so that all the items i used on my layout are under the same name section in the lists and easy to find.

eg "YARRA TRAMS STOP" instead of "halt blah blah blah"

"YARRA TRAMS COMBINO WHITE FRONT"
"YARRA TRAMS TRAM TRACK" etc etc

It also helped to identify the V6E items clearly on the layout when editing stuff..

Thank you for all the kind messages I have received about my V6E tram layout in progress. Unfortunately, for one reason and another I haven’t worked on the route since last December. I do hope to complete it at some point.

However, you may be interested to learn that in the last few weeks I have started work on a new project which is an adaptation of the excellent tram route called “Mittelstadt” by Spikerod (Torsten) available on TRSBINGEN-NAHVERKEHR (http://www.trsbingen-nahverkehr.de). I have reduced the size of Torsten’s route from 5 to 2 base boards, added more tram lines and changed many things. It is my intention to hopefully get Torsten’s permission to release the route when I have completed it.

In the meantime, here are a few screenshots of the tram depot I have added:

As I continue work on my Hamburg V6E tram route, I have created some re-skins of Karelh's Škoda LIAZ 706 RT Popelářský Vůz (Garbage Truck) as shown below for use on my layout:-

http://www.mark.hodgkinson2.btinternet.co.uk/images/Liaz_RT.jpg

Karelh (Karel Hejnal) has given me permission to upload my reskins to the DLS and the 4 re-skins are currently awaiting approval.

The orginal model can be downloaded from http://trainz.jedisoft.cz. Search for "KH_Popelari pack" (You will need to register).

Hi Mark,

on all your screenshots I can see lots of "Trabis", "Wartburgs", etc.
While the time Hamburg had a tram there were not any cars from East-Germany. For your route you should better take VW-Beatle(Kaefer), VW Bully T1/T2, Mercedes L319, Porsche, BMW, Opel,Ford and other "West-Cars".

If you need pictures etc. from Hamburg, write a PM to me, cause I life there...

Cheers

The cream Mercedes MB230 is one of a set of cars created by Ulf Freudenreich, which I believe were originally included as part of German TRS2007.

However, the car is included as part of “GR_Content_korrigiert.cdp” which is included in Conny's Altstadlinie Tram Layout, which can be downloaded from here:

http://www.v6e.de/Altstadtlinie.zip (http://www.v6e.de/Altstadtlinie.zip)




on all your screenshots I can see lots of "Trabis", "Wartburgs", etc.
While the time Hamburg had a tram there were not any cars from East-Germany……


The V6E tram route I’m currently working on is an adaptation of the excellent tram route called “Mittelstadt” by Spikerod (Torsten) available on TRSBINGEN-NAHVERKEHR (http://www.trsbingen-nahverkehr.de (http://www.trsbingen-nahverkehr.de/)).

“Mittelstadt” was created by Spikerod as a DDR route, hence why the “Trabis”, “Wartbungs”, etc still feature on the route. I wasn’t intending on making my route truly authentic, after all Prague Castle features adjacent to the Rathaus! Having said that, I will try and incorporate more of the GR “West German” content into my route.

All my interests in Rail Roads once started about Trams. There has been a tram line operated in Chemnitz (my home town) in which cars have been used, been built in 1928. This cars remained until the end of line in 1889.
May one day I should dedicate some route and gmax creations to this line as well.

I just want to make a compliment to the creators of the contend been used in this route. It all looks just great!!

i see a problem here; in that if people download this route, then there's going to be a fair bit of missing stuff simply because we can't get it. why has all of conny's stuff vanished from TRS bingen anyway? why delete it all?

The white surfaces are where the adverts should be. Have you deleted the werbung.tga file?

The V6E standard red and cream trams use 2 meshes (one with a grey roof and the other with a silver roof). For each individual traincar, one of the meshes is used. Inside each traincar asset, there are the individual adverts (the werbung.tga files). Obviously, for the overall advert cars, you will notice that there is both a mesh and traincar.

So, to do a re-skin you need to re-skin both a mesh and a traincar.

With my orange V6E car, I just painted the adverts in orange as there is no way to stop the advert images being applied to the side of the tram.

Hope that makes sense.

As well as putting the finishing touches to my adaptation of Spikerod's Mittelstadt for the V6E tramcars, I'm now also working on a V6E adaptation of his Frankenberg tram layout.

The basis of my adaptation is the provision of a tram depot at the Steinweg loop, the upgrade to double-track running over the majority of the route to cut-down on Trainz signalling problems, and split-street running between Steinweg and an expanded road junction near the fairground.

Here's are a few screenshots:

Unfortunately, with my current work on the adaptation of Spikerod’s fantastic Frakenberg and Mittelstadt routes, I doubt I will get the chance to do anymore with that particular route until the new year.

As a rough guide, Frankenberg V6E will be available on the DLS before the end of December and Mittelstadt V6E by the end of January 2010. The route you mention will be available sometime after that. Sorry I cannot give a definite release date, but I’m only really doing these routes for my own personal enjoyment; releasing the routes is more of an afterthought.

With the cold winter weather outside I have spent today inside and 7 hours working on Frankenberg. Here are a few screenshots of today’s progress:

Hi Mark,

great adaptions. I'm eager to test them. But I've a criticism on both. From my point of view (I was born in the former GDR) you should replace all the Trabi and Wartburg (GDR-made) Cars with western ones. For content www.trsbingen-nahverkehr.de is a good start. I know it seems to be a lot of work. But if not you're risking an anachronism whilest using Hamburg trams and for instance western german police cars (like can be seen on one of your screenies). And believe me here in Eastern Germany the Trabis are unique and very distinctive.

You’re not alone in your criticism of my use of East German cars on a supposedly West German based layout; indeed people have commented on this in previous posts. The problem is the vast amount of cars on Spikerod’s East German (DDR) Frakenberg/Mittelstadt layouts that would need changing, and more importantly, which specific cars should I use?

You mention www.trsbingen-nahverkehr.de (http://www.trsbingen-nahverkehr.de/) being a good site to find West German cars and indeed that is true, but I don’t want to use too much non-DLS content as it makes it hard for people to get all the required assets.

I think my best bet would be to use the excellent cars created by Ulf Freudenreich (MB230, L319, Escort, Kadett, Kaefer, BMW02 etc), which I believe were originally included as part of the German TRS2007. Can anybody confirm?

For anyone with TRS2004 or TRS2006, the cars are included as part of “GR_Content_korrigiert.cdp” which is included in Conny's Altstadlinie Tram Layout, which can be downloaded from here: http://www.v6e.de/Altstadtlinie.zip (http://www.v6e.de/Altstadtlinie.zip)

Fingers crossed, Frankenberg V6E will be available on the DLS before the end of December.


Unfortunately, progress on Frankenberg V6E hasn't been as fast as I had expected. The release date for the route on the DLS now looks like it will be around mid-January 2010. :( Hopefully it should be worth the wait.

Here's a couple more screenshots of today's work:

As you can see above, you'll be pleased to learn that I'm now just putting the finishing touches to my V6E Frankenberg layout and I will have it uploaded to the DLS later today.

Please note however, that due to the current backlog of content awaiting approval on the DLS dating from 16th December, it may take a while longer than usual for the route to appear.

No, the PDF map mentioned above is for "V6E Middelstadt" which I'm expecting to release by the end of the month.

I haven't done a PDF map for "V6E Frankenberg"; mainly because it is a single tram route layout.

However, to give you an idea of the route, I have created the following simple map:

Anyone who has got Torsten's (Spikerod) original Frankenberg route will instantly be able to tell which parts of his fanatstic layout I have changed.

The "V6E Frankenberg" route is complete and ready for release.

However, the Auran DLS is not working at the present time and Auran are recommending that nothing be uploaded at the current time.

See http://forums.auran.com/trainz/showthread.php?t=36281&page=30 for further details.

As soon as the DLS is up and running again, I will be uploading my "V6E Frankenberg route".

At this time Auran have no date of when the DLS will be fixed, so I thank you for your patience in the meantime.

That may be the case, but the most recent information from Auran support is that content should not be uploaded to the DLS at the present time:


......We are currently still working on the download station, and as such there are still some issues evident. Mainly this is with the approvals system.

Due to this, we would ask that you remain patient whilst we work on this. I would not recommend uploading anything at this time, as it appears that the uploads system may have become overloaded again.......

I have a few assets awaiting for approval on the DLS from a few weeks ago before Auran advised not to upload. They seem to be just stuck.

Anyhow, I will not be uploading anything to the DLS until Auran annouce that the DLS is working again.

This map incorporates a single tram route which runs from a loop at Schnelsen to a loop at Volksparkstadion.
There are two intermediate terminuses in the city at Goldbekplatz and Winterhude Markt.

Hello Mark, looks great. Thank you for the time invested in this lay-out and content
Downloaded yesterday and luckely had most of the content present.
Just 2 questions:
1. Driving in full automated version, two trams keep encountering heads up between Goldbekplatz and the double track section in the direction of Winterhude Markt. Perhaps placing some "unsichtbares Blocksignal" could correct this (I'm going to try this today)
2. With which program / tool did you create the example of the route under the photo? I'm very interested.

Thanx in advance.

I experimented with the placing of signals etc for a long time, but couldn't get the single line section to work all of the time. If you get any better results, I would be interested in your feedback.


2. With which program / tool did you create the example of the route under the photo? I'm very interested.

I started in TRS2006 Driver and took several screenshots of the map with all features apart from the track turned off. I then loaded these screenshots into PaintShop Pro and pieced them together. I inverted the final pieced together image so that the background was white and made the track black.

Hello Mark
I was able to get a part of the problem on the one track section solved, the tram now stops on the corner just after Winterhude Markt and waits for the tram coming from the exchange section. Had to place and experiment with the invisible blocks there.
The problem at Goldbekplatz is a tough one. Tried everything from blocksignals, invisible switches to changing the "wechselantriebe" etc. The upcoming tram keeps switching W09 to a left turnout where two trams coming from the one track section still need to pass over a straight switch. The switch is triggered over 50 meters in advance! Think the problem is deep in the "AUTO" mode and can't be solved as long as other instuctions are denied by the v6e rules.

Found most of the missing content in the meantime. Now only kuid:96663:37083 is still missing as well as "worker08".

Hello Mark, tried everything the past week to get the session flowing in automated version between Goldbekplatz and the exchange near the monastery but helas without result. Problem is that any tram arriving at Goldbekplatz from Schnelsen keeps claiming W09 and turns the switch to the left no mather if the block is occupied by an incoming tram in the direction of Schnelsen. Hope you have it cleared in the upcoming version or anyone else can be of assistance in solving this problem.

Btw the V7e looks great. I wonder if they still will create the "beiwagen 4351" which was planned for years on on their site. The same counts for the "zugmachine 3991".

These house blocks are TRS 2007(Trs 2006 German Version) built in objects from the route "Bad Schandau-Decin"(Elbtalstrecke). I've placed these items at my Frankenberg layout as "background items". Maybe you can replace with other objects.

Hello Mark and all others :)
Before I buy your trams for this famous map, I need info about compatibility. Has anyone experience with the operation under TS2009? I have build 41844.
Thanx for reply,
DREW

You must move things around with TS2009, which involves an annoying amount of deleting and such using content creator Plus
Best Luck,
Eric
