2004: In the 2004 directorys there is aprogram that will turn your assett into a CDP, once you have that you can goto to DLS and your cart. on the left hand side of the page Press your content and you can upload it

2006 and beyond:
from CMP right click on the asset and select upload
on the right with the search/ downloads ect there is a upload one, press the botton on the bottom and follow the instructions.

If that fails you can right click on the asset and tell it to make a CDP and upload it like step 1, I had to do this for a while till I got the upload working.

Hope this helps, can't wait to see your asset

Click Reply, look along the second top row of icons in the message form. The fourth last is Insert Image. Click the icon, add the URL to your image. It's best to open your image up first in your gallery, then copy the URL. make sure the image conforms with the Code of Conduct" max 800 x 600 which is too large in my opinion.

I have tried that but dont understand URL where do I get this from?
duh bit thick !
1 I open gallery and select screenshot but cant find url.
2 I open screenshots in Auran prog file but no url!
3 I click insert image and it asks for url, where or how do I get the url?
Sorry for being a pain in the ass, but when I have done it once I will have no probs.
many thanks Seat1ger (Tim)

Hi Tim,

We all have to start at the beginning some time.

When you say you've got your screen shots into your gallery, I assume you mean a web gallery like Flicker, Photobucket or similar. Hopefully you don't mean a gallery on your own computer. To post a photo in the Trainz Forums, you must have the photos stored on a remote web site and most of the girls and guys choose one of the public sites mentioned above.

Okay, if you do have your photos in a public web gallery then all is okay. When you wish to display a picture on the forum, you simply add an address (URL) to the post telling the forum server where to locate the photo.

Provided your web browser is set up okay, it will show you the exact address (URL) of a photo when you visit your photo gallery to look at it.

Have a look at the top of the screen now. You will see a field with this address:

http://forums.auran.com/trainz/showthread.php?p=395249#post395249 (http://forums.auran.com/trainz/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=395224)

This is the URL of this forum thread.

When you go to your photo gallery and display the photo you wish to show us, copy the address that appears in the browser address field. To copy the address, highlight it the same way you highlight stuff with your word processor. Place the cursor at the right of the address, Press the left mouse button and keep it pressed. Drag the mouse (cursor) to the left of the field and the address will turn blue. Release the mouse button. Type Ctrl C (keep the Ctrl key pressed while you type C). This is the keyboard shortcut for copy.

Now create a reply in the forum thread. Click the Insert Image icon and where you see http://, delete that and type Ctrl V (that's the shortcut for paste). The URL for the photo should now appear in the field. Click okay and submit your reply. Your new post together with the photo should now appear in the thread.

Good luck.

I'm not saying its perfect but it is a start, maybe you experts can work on it.

Nice looking complex. What is the name to search for in DLS? I could use a brewery of this size.

January 28th, 2009, 05:33 PM
Have a heart I have only just found out how to get the pic on here , thanks to John in OZ.
Help to get it to DLS would be appreciated.

If your using 04 then i can't help. If 06, right click and hit upload i belive. Then we wait. Im not 100% sure, someone said about it up a little higher!

Hi Tim, It's a nice brewery. Very similar to the now defunct Cairns brewery, which is now a commercial office ans shopping centre complex.

The procedure for uploading to the DLS is the same as TRS 2006 as far as I know. The manual that came with the program (2006) should help.

I am using TZ'09, I have been using '06 for 12 months, but now I'm trying to get to grips with the finer details???? of Trainz :>(
Not knowing where to look for HELP is aproblem, but you guys on here are a great help many thanks to all

Well that's god Tim seeing as i have 09's content manager open now. heres what i think you do. Find your asset under MY Content in the CMP. Then open up the UPLOADS tab. Drag you asset, in this case the brewry, into the box. If you don't have an image i dont think it particuraly matters. Then hit upload. It will take about 2 days for it to go onto the actuall DLS, maybe less maybe more. Remember I'm not sure if this is correct or not so best of luck!

Happy Contentcreating!

Didn't mean to put the pressure on you. :o Wish I could help, but I have no knowledge in that area.
