    Default finding new routes and sessions help please

    Good day all,

    i am a total noob to trainz 2019 i have figured out how to download on DLS in game.

    however how do you guys find routes with sessions or sessions for a route ? seems like i never find the two together.

    just wondering how you guys do it as there are some really amazing routes available people have made.

    thank you for the help !

    I suggest the Kickstarter 2, routes by Philskene, and whamm0. You can search on the DLS by author. Sessions for a route can be found by searching for "dependents" of a route. (I don't think whamm0 has any sessions). There are dozens of great routes, these are just my suggestions.

    Let us know what you like best. Philskene and Whamm0 create fantastic model routes, if you want longer routes you can try UMR, or MSGSapper's recently revamped New England Coastal route, Or his soon to be remodeled Progressive Rail Jesse James route. Also there are the Clovis Texas route, the L&A and many more, but, I would have to do like pitkin suggests and try looking at dependents to find sessions. There has never been a requirement for anyone to list in a session description what route it actually goes to, which to me would be an obvious thing to do, but which never happens.

    Clovis look like a nice route but be prepared to go hunting if you download it. I have about 50 missing dependencies which I am in the process of tracking down right now.

    My sessions do, and so do Philskenes

    To show routes and sessions together in Content Manager (which is what I think you are asking) you set a filter.
    - Click "Manage Content"
    - Click the black diamond next to "Filter" at the top left
    - Set the top "Installed" filter to "False"
    - To the far right of "Installed" "True" you will see a "minus" and a "plus" - Click the PLUS
    - "Asset Kuid" will show right below the first filter which is "Installed" "True" - Change "Asset Kuid" to "Category" "Route"
    - On that line click the plus to add another filter and set it to "OR"
    - Now add one more filter of "Category" "Session"

    Setting the above filter will show you only Routes and Sessions. Click the column headings to sort by Name, or Author, or Upload Date and the Route Names Sessions should be shown relatively close to each other. But know that sometimes this is not true as someone other than the Route Author may create a session some months later. But this will get you started.

    You can refine even further by adding even more filter paramenters to the what I describe above. For instance, to the above filter add an "And" selector and then an "Author" filter of "philskene" to see only philskene's routes and sessions (but this won't show any sessions made by anyone but "philskene")

    If you need to see a pic just let me know.
