View Full Version : Consists /Hoppers / Gondolas

May 14th, 2012, 12:48 PM

Is there a list anywhere, that tells you which type of consist / hopper etc can be used for each type of load / product? I am constantly using the wrong type for the product required so end up with errors when I arrive to load. The only ones I get right are coal, grain, logs and wood chips :hehe:

It's purely lack of knowledge on my part, and not the items. But I am keen to learn!

All help appreciated!

Sort of. Use CM3.6 to list the commodity in question by setting the Search Panel to Category - Commodity plus Location - Local. Then right click and select View Dependent Assets. Click on the View in main list button and you'll get a list of all kuids that are set up to access/use that commodity.
One note to remember, the Search Category - Commodity doesn't list all commodities. The following built-in commodities have to be looked up by their kuid numbers:
Aviation Fuel,<kuid:-3:10045>
Crude Oil,<kuid:-3:10010>
Diesel Fuel,<kuid:-3:10011>
General Goods,<kuid:-3:10013>
Petrol Fuel,<kuid:-3:10012>
20ft Container,<kuid:-3:10014>
