Post news RSS Mod DB Upgrades Complete.

We have finished adding a swag of new download mirrors!

Posted by on

Since the 1st of August, Mod DB has been performing behind the scenes work to improve the speed of the site, and also our download system - which is growing rapidly! Our file library is growing at a rate of 200% every year, which is a testament to the rapidly growing Mod and Indie development scenes!

We now have the following mirrors available to both members and guests:

  • 2 x European mirrors, hosted in the Netherlands
  • 5 x US-based mirrors, 2 in California, 2 in Denver and 1 in Texas
  • 1 x Australian mirror, in Perth.
  • We also continue to have Filefront available as a download option for users and guests.

The new mirroring system that was programmed by site creator Intense! pushes out new and popular files to all mirrors - meaning within about 15 minutes of a file being uploaded through the site, it will be available to download worldwide.

We are still looking for ISP's and hosting providers interested in providing mirrors - we can use up as little as 100GB of space and 10Mbits of bandwidth - all the way up to 5TB of space and a Gigabit of bandwidth, depending on what you are willing to offer! In return we can offer targeted advertising when your mirror is used to download files!

For users - we are looking for feedback on your download speeds - If you get terrible speeds from a specific mirror, please leave us some detailed feedback so we can improve the service to you (i.e. "I downloaded a file from the California mirror yesterday at 8pm PST and i only got 10kb/s, but I am on a 10mbps connection"). Thanks for your support of Mod DB!

We've still got some way to go. Our servers hit 100% load quite often but we'll get there eventually.
