To add a route, follow these steps:

  • Type the name of the route into the search box and click Go.
  • If the wiki comes up with a route, somebody was faster than you ;-)
  • If not, the wiki will display something like "page does not exist, you can create it". Do that.
  • Copy and paste the following code:

[[Category:Hungary]] {{Routetemplate|country=Hungary [[File:Flag-hun.gif]]|length=10 km|author=Author's Name|version=1|fictional=yes|runsOn=OpenBVE, BVE2, BVE4, BVE5|trains=ES64U4|update=2013-01-25|url=http://the-download.url}}

Obviously, on the right side of each = symbol, you must add meaningful information. Note that the Country Category (first line) may not exist in the Routes by country list, you may add it here.

Beneath this template, add a description as you wish.

You can add a flag image to the country. By default you see File:Flag-hun.gif. Flag-hun.gif of course displays the Hungarian flag. Others can be used the same way, just replace hun with the first three letters of your country: Flag-bri.gif, Flag-sco.gif, Flag-usa.gif, Flag-ger.gif and so on. You can find a list of country flags and their file names on the Country flags page.

Use the Upload tool from the toolbox to upload one or two screenshots of the route and add them to the page with [[Image:Nameoftheimage.jpg]].

If you frequently contribute to this page, consider adding your name to the Contributors page.
