    You have to find, and download all the "missing dependencies" ... Trainz has always been like that for decades

    Nothing comes automatically, ready to run

    Alright bucko. Calm down.

    Right click on the asset that is missing deps. Find the 'show dependencies' line, and click that. Look for the one that is missing, and then right click on it, and select 'download'.

    Please be civil while posting on this forum dude.

    Welcome to Trainz. Great first post. Very diplomatic.

    I would recommend that you register your copy with NV3.

    First of all you need to curb your language here, otherwise, you will find yourself banned from the forums. As a now retired moderator, I would have issued a warning to you and put you on the watch list. This is a community of people from all over the world and a community of people of all ages. Children should not hear/read that here, and definitely out of respect for the elders, this shouldn't be spoken out of respect for them either.

    I highly recommend you read the Code of Conduct found here:

    http://online.ts2009.com/mediaWiki/i...ode_Of_Conduct

    Now on to business...

    First I recommend a website, which requires registration and a small fee, about $20 per year if that. www.trainzkuidindex.com This database will search out your missing dependencies and provide the links to them if available.

    The other method, although not always efficient, requires posting the Kuid here in a forum post and hopefully someone will come along and point you in the right direction. To post a kuid here: Highlight the line in Content Manager, and paste here. Unfortunately, without a registered version of Trainz I have no way of providing exact details.

    Speaking of registration...

    You need to use the same user name you registered your software with as your login in the forums. If you are already registered, purchased Trainz on Steam, or registered under a different name than the one you are posting with here, contact N3V Helpdesk to get everything straightened out.

    http://support.trainzportal.com/

    Without showing a Trainz version next to your name, you will come across as a software pirate and receive minimal help, and if you are registered you will always be pestered about the status.

    Sorry, the original poster is right.

    He bought the game and it doesn't work.

    This is the biggest failing of Trainz, content creators are too lazy to direct the user to missing dependencies and saying the asset is available at Jointed Rail doesn't work as an answer.

    Ah, how we miss Checkrail, he was one of the few competent route builders. All the dependencies were listed.

    Yeah, the OP has right to be rude, he bought a game and it doesn't work.

    The other guy's Workshop scenarios work and list the crap needed. Trainz is a big fail in that area.

    Not quite. He downloaded additional content from some site, probably free, and found it was incomplete. Not the same thing.

    Or he downloaded one of those dreadful routes on DLS where most of the assets aren't on DLS.

    Deleted many of that ilk.

    Rather than piling answers, why don't we wait until the gentleman responds? (if he dares), and see what is he doing about it? Finding missing assets may seem daunting, but if you know what you are doing, is not so bad.

    It's not a game. It's a simulator, where users have been given abilities to create, tweak or modify content. Moreover, there are numerous resources available and a broad based community to assist with solutions.

    I've yet to use a sim, play a game or run software that didn't have bugs or shortcomings.

    This is a major failing of the Trainz franchise, letting the DLS fall into its present state.

    The DLS content shouldn't have missing assets:

    There are now well over 10,000 routes available on the Trainz Download Station (DLS) that you can download for free and enjoy. So when people tell you "you have to buy lots of DLC" remind them that the choice is theirs, with plenty of high quality free routes and content available on the DLS.
    How can a game be enjoyed if a second hobby is required of "Chase the KUID"?

    Phil's routes are great, they are done right. Nothing is missing.

    By that logic, I bought a new car, but can't enjoy it because GM failed to inform me that I'd encounter heavy traffic and potholes on the roads.
