    Angry Why are some of my assets Packaged, Payware (Not Active)??

    Ever since the N3V DLC deal went away, some of my assets have just dissipated into thin air. It happened to an asset I was using as an engine shed, it happened to the bogeys on my SP SD70M I bought from JR and it happened to all the locomotives I downloaded from the DLC store! What the actual ****! I thought those assets would remain in my database forever! There was no disclaimer on the deal that said "Your assets will become inactive payware after this date." UNCOOL! Why should it delete all the dependencies for those assets too! Why should it delete well-made buildings? EXPLAIN PLEASE!

    DLC packages are not free except for the ones that come with the game. You had a period of time to look at them free of charge and have the option to buy any you like before the 30th of January at a 75% discount. You can purchase a Plus or Gold membership and gain access to all DLC packages for free while you keep up the membership. Buy an annual membership before the 30th of January and you get TRS22 free to keep forever. It comes with S2.0 which is valid only during membership.

    It should be only the items that you own from the Trainz Store will remain active. Items that you don't own from the Trainz Store will become inactive.
    If you bought an engine from JR then best thing is to uninstall that DLC so you can use the JR version again.

    Any items that you don't own will still be there but will remain inactive until active by either purchasing those items or sign up for the Silver or Gold membership.

    N3V did say until the 15th of that should've hinted that any non-owned items will go into inactive mode
    But yes N3V should've put a disclaimer about items not owned will become inactive.

    I'm missing the bogey of the SP SD70M which for some reason is inactive payware.

    I thought that meant "You can't download stuff after the 15th."

    Thanks for the information guys, but I still need the SP SD70M bogey.

    Apparently, they removed FREEWARE TRACK from my database! TRACK I'VE HAD FOR MONTHS BEFORE! This ruined an entire ROUTE I made with the track! I DEMAND an explanation, this is absurd! You can't just say "Here's free DLC" and then take it all away, even the stuff I DIDN'T download during that time! I can't delete the inactive payware asset that overwrote my freeware version, and I can't reinstall it to fix everything!

    If you deleted the payware packages, run a database repair to clean up the database.

    For freeware content, you should be able to reinstall that content from the DLS because that's how the system is supposed to work now. If you have issues with that, contact the helpdesk.

    I’ve also been experiencing funky asset issues since the 15th. I have randomly lost assets that had nothing to do with anything from the DLC preview and many assets that were fine before have now become faulty. At least i know it just isn’t me. Being on a prepaid cellular hotspot for internet, ( my ONLY option ), it is costing me a small fortune to have to keep re-downloading all this stuff. Not to mention the HOURS it takes to download just a couple of gb’s.

    My advice would be to use this - https://online.ts2009.com/mediaWiki/...te_DLC_Listing , to identify the packages which are now inactive. Find the corresponding package in the packages folder and delete them, run a DBR and then download anything missing from the DLS. If you haven't deleted any obsolete assets in the last month, a DBR will restore most of your database prior to downloading DLC. For JR assets, simply reinstall the offending assets.

    Hi All
    Any assets marked as payware in a DLC pack (note for older DLC packs, this may include any non DLS assets; newer DLC packs the 'payware' assets are specified by the creator) will become inactive after the free period, unless you have purchased the DLC pack, or claimed it through the Content Vault in a silver or gold membership.

    If you do not intend to purchase the DLC pack, or a silver or gold membership, then you will need to uninstall the DLC pack through the Content Store. You may need to install any assets from the DLS or 3rd party sites again in some cases.

    Routes that show content as not active need to firstly do a DBR to rebuild the database. Then you need to open your route/session and use delete missing assets. This will replace the kuid in the config file with the older asset that was installed before.
