    Default Yard Guide Help

    I was hoping someone can help me. A couple of years ago I had been using Mr. Den's Yard Guide but have sinced changed computers and upgraded to TRS2012. I downloaded the Yard Guide, but can't find the instruction PDF file anywhere on my hard drive. Does anyone have a valid link to where I can get the instructions or if someone can just send me a copy? Either way would be a big help. One other quick question; where would the CMP be storing any PDF or text files that come with content?

    The yard guide is is on the DLS under this kuid 141417:60079 the download should contain the PDF file. Once you have downloaded the asset find it in Content Manager and right click on it and 'Open for Edit' in Explorer. This wil open the asset in a new window where you will see a series of folders and the config text file etc. The PDF guide should be here for you. Right click on the PDF icon and select 'copy' then go to your desktop or documents folder and click 'paste' to put a copy of the PDF in a place where you can just open it up without having to go through the above process via Content Manager. This should also answer your second point. All PDF's and help files that come downloaded with assets will be in the asset folder once you open them for edit in explorer. Just remember to right click and select 'Commit' with your open assets after you have finished copying out the files that you want

    I use various FT (fixed track) turnouts as a yard guide, then one by one, I replace each FT turnout, with single track.

    Gawpo50 trunouts look really nice.

    Andy, I'm not sure the guide is included any more. I downloaded it just now and no guide. For anyone that needs it, here it is

    Funny how things change on the Internet. As far as I know the guide still works in newer versions of Trainz but changes made to the graphics engine in TANE and TRS19 makes it very hard to select tiny objects if anything else is around. Clicking on the tiny red boxes might be very hard now.

    I tended to prefer the 3D Trains templates as Mr. Den's was a lot of work. Here are the docs for them. Search the DLS for 3D Trains.

    It is actually 3dtrains. There is no space between d and t.

    I found this one too. It applies to both mutton's Template Switch and Natvander's Turnout Template as well as any others that are similar. Mutton is _mutton_ for some reason.
