    We are currently working on our downloads manager. Its still very WIP and certainly not the final version we are still waiting on to be finalized by a good temporary solution for those of you who like to share files with other members without having to wait for 20 minutes to get it all downloaded.

    Is it working for everybody? Things missing? Bugs? Suggestions?

    Any feedback is welcome

    First of all, HUGE thanks to you Bram and all other RD admins worked hard on this. Looks very neat and clean.

    As a concern, in the "Newest Downloads" "Most Viewed" and "Most Downloaded" lists, we can't know which game's file are they. Tough i'm very sure that it is already known, just on the "to-add-list" :)

    EDIT: Downloading now works for me. Speeds are great! :)

    Working great for me too. Thanks to Bram and the RD team.

    I'm guessing many of the GSC tracks I downloaded yesterday were illegal?

    There were many tracks by a Ronnie82 that have since been removed.

    The term "illegal" seems to be the norm here for tracks and cars lifted from other sims without consent.

    Yes correct. :) People like this Ronnie character show no respect to those that did the actual work in creating the tracks or even own the rights for it.

    Our policy on illegal tracks is known and we don't allow them.

    Yup, i've been hunting this guy down and got him removed from bunch of places and got one site shut down. All his "work" is poorly converted tracks made in a hurry without any permission from anyone. He managed to stay out of general public eye for a long time and the modding community was great giving support to real authors. But he made a huge disservice to all GSC players...

    I'm so greatful for RD to return this feature, in the old DL section you could count that all mods worked and all content was legal. For modders it was a priviledge to be in the RD list since it means you're work can be proven to be legitimate just by showing a link... I hope the policy is the same with the new system. Still waiting for BTB section....

    The new "download-service" has stolen the Race07 mods forum I guess...visiting the Race07 section just shows the link to the download manager and the sub-forum Race07 mods is gone :(

    (hopefully this is the right place for the feedback :D)

    Oh, it does indeed :D. You can't limit it to the download section alone, it shows forum posts with those keywords too, but I guess that'll do.
