Suggestions for a track download area
« on: November 06, 2014, 06:39:03 PM »
I Think we need a good Download Section where the Tracks easy to find and to Download, because nobody finds Released tracks in this forum without watched 50 Sites

Yes, it would help alot, especially for new members but also for everybody else in the forum.

Before we reinvent the wheel take a look at what has been realised for GPBikes and WRS. MEGA and Dropbox are payed Pro accounts and synchronised.
To ensure a good download quality for everyone there are two places because some people have problems with Mega and some with Dropbox.

https://mega.co.nz/#F!eNVSADpZ!a6u3dBMlFT8zw5x7K68eVg
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jw9811t7mlgx45f/AAB4mosTJ9QKRfK59bNC4xSoa

Everytime a new track is released it will be uploaded to both stores (if it's ok for the track author) and a forum message is posted in the 'Track Downloads' thread.
All tracks have release numbers (e.g. Lonato_V1.1) to avoid confusion if they are updated. 

The system is running for a while now and it's working pretty well.

I have a MEGA account that has something like 50 gb free. I can upload onto there. You take care of Dropbox.

Nice, that's a very good start for the project.  :) :)  I'll pay for the dropbox account. Now let's care for the rest.

I'll begin compiling all tracks we have. I do know that there is kart.marienly.de (spelling might be different) but that is a good place to start.

Here a preview of my Dropbox version. The first tracks are online (~5GB).
Link to the tracks here: http://forum.kartracing-pro.com/index.php?topic=4785.0

I've uploaded the tracks which I've found at my local drives. Please check if they are the latest versions.

There are still a lot of tracks missing, here I NEED YOUR HELP. Please tell me which tracks are not in the list and if possible post a link.

I know for a fact people used this,  it takes time for everything to come together

A new link to the database is set. But I really need your support. I've uploaded the tracks which I have and what I found in the forum but the database is by far not complete.

I've to reactivate my old account or make a new one. But to be honest, I hate chats.  ::)
I'll PM at the weekend when I'll have a bit more time.

I will go through my tracks and ensure they're the right version and such and I'll try and upload them Friday.
Thank you very much, this will help alot.  :)

Though I do have a suggestion, can we move tracks into folders by their authors so the authors can be credited and if there are two different versions of a track by two different  authors it's organized.
I would prefer the alphabetical order but it's no problem if you, Marco or someone else wants his own subfolder.



@all, are the Dropbox download speeds ok for you? Do we need alternative downloads?

Definately better than Mega, which doesnt download at all if you change the site while downloading
