Sadly, 2006 content (and Paintshed-skinned content too for that matter) is no longer supported by Auran, as as such, you can't upload it anymore to the DLS, hence why the errors the DLS is giving you when you try to upload your Paintshed models.

However, that doesn't mean you can't still provide it to other users - by packaging your Paintshed reskins into CDP files, then saving the CDP file on a media storage site like Mediafire, and finally providing interested members with the direct link to download it (such as in the Freeware Announcements forum), so that people can download your work. :)

Last time I looked Trainz ProRoutes was still taking content for both 2004 and 2006.

You can get around this debacle by re-packaging the Paintshed files into stand alone folders that don't require aliasing. They have to made to 2010 standards and I have uploaded many 40ft. boxcars and bulk hoppers to the DLS in this way.
