I recently downloaded Majekear's Caterpillar 345D Product (kuid2:56063:700001:1) but I can not seem to find a flat car that will accept it as a load. Any suggestions?
Thanks Gary

Will it fit on "Flatcar 6 Axle Depressed Center Empty"?

I just searched the DLS for "depressed" and found several likely candidates, one looks like the one in the pic with the cat, possibly Phil's.

Thanks guys. I really like Phil's 6 axle depressed and that was the first I tried but alas it did not work:( .

Phil's 6 axel flatcars are set up for predefined 20ft and 40ft containers that are listed within kuid:-3:10014 and kuid:-3:10041. To add the capability to load the 345D cat you have to do a simple edit to the flatcar's config.txt file as follows:
Existing queue section for load 0 includes:

queues
{
load0
{
size 1
initial-count 0

attachment-points
{
0 "a.load_lower"
}

allowed-products
{
0 <kuid:-3:10014>
}

edit to this:


queues
{
load0
{
size 1
initial-count 0

attachment-points
{
0 "a.load_lower"
}

allowed-products
{
0 <kuid:-3:10014>
1 <kuid2:56063:700001:1>
}

save and commit. Now you can load containers or the cat.

Thanks a bunch Kent and Bob.
Bob: Chanfing the config is obviously the most practical if I were doing this for my benefit alone. However, I am one of those scenario creator guys and in order to use the six axle I would have to "reskin" Phil's creation so folks who downloaded my scenario could use it. But I think I have what I need now.

There is absolutely no need to edit the config.txt file.

Download this package:

Inside you will find an illustrated tutorial on setting up interactive industries and freight cars, then you will be able to do all sorts of wonderful things with loads, like:

Hi!

I am interested in the tutorial, but Rapidshare keeps eating my nerves with messages like
"You can only download it as a premium member.".
Is there an alternative source?
