For years now the Mod DB download system has allowed you to blindly choose any mirror. The problem with this was during the quiet periods the system was under utilized and during the busy periods it was over utilized. Not any more! The new system automatically picks the mirror closest to you and sends you your download (and displays an ad yay!) for you to watch while you wait for your file.
This means less clicks, no queues and hopefully not overloading or underloading our servers. Also ISPS CONTACT US if you would like to provide a mirror and have a big ad shown every download. Our system is fully automated, can target IP ranges and will promote your brand while helping our community and site a great deal. We need mirrors because if our systems are overloaded we send people to filefront for their files which we want to avoid, as we want to get the mod files out as quick as possible.
