New on TKI : you can now paste a list of kuids !      

A new text area has been added to the search kuid form.
In this text area you can paste a text containing several kuids.
The only constraint is that the kuids must be well formed : <kuid:123:456> or <kuid2:123:456:7>
For example you can copy a list from the Content Manager dependecies Pop-up, here in TRS2010/TS12 :

Copy from Content Manager

or from the dependecies window in TANE :

Copy from Content Manager

and paste in the new text area in the search kuid form :

Below an excerp of the n3v newsletter from the 20th of may 2017, that explain this decision :

 

Missing Dependencies - where do I find them?

 

The Trainz Download Station (DLS) has 421,392 items listed for download. However, a similar amount of content resides on 3rd party websites around the world. And when community members upload items to the DLS, they are often unaware that they are about to cause even more hair to fall out from the heads of many other Trainz fans as they search for non-DLS items :)

For 5 years now, one community member has invested thousands of hours into providing a resource to help other Trainz fans find all those missing assets. Pierre's website, Trainzkuidindex, looks at all the other websites, assebles all those links and provides a search facility to access them.

As with any IT system, Trainzkuidindex involves time consuming maintenance and operation. This includes full validation of crawling results before updating the website database, checking and fix crawling problems, adapting crawling settings, real time helping the robot when hitting complicated Javascript, searching for new Trainz fan sites, answering messages, improving the web site, etc...

After just 65 people making a donation over the years, Pierre, decided enough was enough, and announced the closure of his site. However the community rallied behind him and encouraged Pierre to set up a subscription service so that the website could continue to operate and Trainz fans around the world still have a central location to find all those pesky non-DLS items. 

It is the community that makes Trainz what it is today, so please show your support by clicking the link below and do your bit to help keep this valuable resource available.

 

Trainzkuidindex help you, thank you to help trainzkuidindex !
