Default Thoughts/ Ideas on a Custom Action Script for inserting multiple instruments

Hey Guys Whats up I am still quite the beginner on using reaper but the more I use it I'm staring to really enjoy it. I am using it though with the ilogic v2.5 theme. Which ironically for me made it a little bit more simpler to understand. I'll give you all my specs so you know what I'm working with here.

Computer specs
i7-3960X @ 3.30GHz
32 gb ram
1tb samsung pro 850 SSD

Windows 10 Enterprise 1803

Reaper v6.03/x64 rev 881187
With
SWS/S&M Extension
sws-v2.10.0.1-x64-install
Using the ilogic v2.5 Custom Theme


So Here I know my issue is with this theme, it has a nice custom right click menu that is not standard.

I had this issue with the insert instrument track, but I figured out a way to modify that custom action. That now it works the way I want it too.

When I insert multiple instruments first I get this window. To add more tracks

Then after I lets say add 3 tracks, I get my insert virtual instrument windows and the windows to name the tracks.

But here is my issue, the instrument is inserted in one new track. and then I have to manual add instrument on the other tracks. But at least they got named.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/6uctf72z8z...k%204.png?dl=0

Is there a way to perhaps change how multiple tracks are added to make that insert multiple virtual instruments. Then I can remove that rename feature as well. As the instrument usually names itself on the track.
This is what the custom Action currently looks like.

Any ideas I can try I will gladly spin up a VM and get to testing.
Thanks Guys

What you are referring to is a script, that happens to be distributed with a theme. Its not part of the theme. I'm going to move this thread to the Reascript forum, I recommend you change its title so that the people there can help you.

Thanks White Tie, I wasn't sure if it was a Custom action or Script. Still very new to all this. I will try my luck there. Isn't that big of a deal but if I could somehow figure it out. Heck yeah I'll love this theme that much more.
