At the time you posted it we were on holiday so unfortunately it didn't get the attention it needs. Sorry about that.I suggest we go through it, update the track descriptions in the library where needed/possible, see about the numbering of some parts, and give you a test version once we're done to see if it's any better.David.
Quote from: Jeff on December 16, 2011, 07:58:00 PM@David,Remember that I asked for a little thing called 'track grouping'? I'm willing to bet that having such groups available as a tool would solve your problem AND Paul's. Once you have track groups, you get the ability to take things like 6-12029A x 2 & 6-12029B x 1 and pack them into one track group. It should then be simple to stick the 6-12029 tag on it and the end-user will get all 3 parts to use as he should expect. The same situation is more than a single occurrence as you well know. There are quite a few examples of one manufacturer's catalog number actually including multiple parts.
Quote from: Jeff on December 31, 2011, 08:53:59 PMYep, I read them. Think it through- if YOU know what parts actually come with a particular group part number from the manufacturer, then YOU can create a grouping with the proper number. If there is an online server space for sharing such user-created Objects (here in the form of your three pieces of track, for instance), then ALL users can share in your specialized knowledge of that track system. It also helps David out, because such objects then would not necessarily have to be created by him all the time and you, as the forum's expert on the Lionel track, could keep your donated Object up-to-date in case of changes. Does that clarify what I mean?
