Quote from: Hawk on September 25, 2018, 01:43:42 pmThe best we can hope for is for Piboso to do an auto-update routine of any missing bike/track that needs updating via an server script denoted database address that the server admin can enter into the server script? Or something similar?
Quote from: neoraptor on September 25, 2018, 02:27:18 pmI agree for the auto-install/update of mods. It would greatly simplify their installation and maintenance.Why not use something like Steam Workshop (when/if GPBikes comes to Steam). It works perfectly to add content to games (I am using it a lot with other games), by just subscribing the content you want.

Quote from: matty0l215 on September 26, 2018, 10:01:26 amPrivate hosting would be a better option but then the download speed will be abismol when more than one person is trying to download.Nexus Mod Manager has recently opened its download client up to all games, just register the game and then start uploading. The you get to use their game client as well to, well, Manage Mods I will take a look at the option and get back to you guys. If it does work I will be discontinuing the BikeMOD as it will be redundent and then modders should be able to upload/update as they please.
Quote from: HornetMaX on September 26, 2018, 09:30:51 amTrue, but it's the only solution that doesn't require too much manual effort. Mega sucks (for this kind of stuff, not in general).Also, the 10GB are downloaded once, then it's just smaller updates. $/GB is low so I guess cost is not a problem.Of course, an integrated system in GPB would be better but that doesn't seem to be at the horizon despite the request having been made a bat-zillion times in the past few years (well, since modding was introduced, essentially).
Quote from: Hawk on September 26, 2018, 03:04:21 pmI was thinking more of the waste of space usage on the working HDD or SDD?Maybe I'm just an obsessive but I don't like masses of space taken up on my drives with data that is never going to be used. As we all know, no matter how big a data drive you get, it always ends up getting full of data we think will be useful at some stage.... This kind of data cannot be said for bike data that you know your never going to use..... As I say, maybe it's just me being a little obsessive about keeping data and things organised but I've learned from past experience that it pays to keep data/info organised and trash or archive anything that is redundant or isn't going to be used?
