Not make the Modpack redownload itself?

Recommended Posts

Is there not a better way to update the mods the Modpack can download?

 

Could it not read from a JSON File that's hosted somewhere instead of having to re-download a 120MB file from different slow servers?

 

Just a suggestion

The downloads arent slow.. just saying.. Takes 10 sec with 9MB/s, so no idea what you are referring to... its not like 10 sec is slow anyway, go back in time and try ADSL speeds then we can talk :grin:
Modstation are doing the same mostly, but for each patch update not mod update.
No idea if Aslain would want that, costs him money to host the files instead of adding a new exe file.

i'm talking about the initial installer. that thing is 120MB big and takes 3 minutes to download.

 

and thank you, i've been there in ADSL times. But it's ridiculous that i can downlad a 10Gig game on Steam faster than a 120MB mod installer. (500MBit/s down, if you were wondering, so 63MB/s.)

 

That is what is bothering me. The fact that a download of a 120MB file, in this day and age, takes 3 minutes to be done.

Those are the speeds i'm getting from the 2 working mirrors. Which is absolutely horrible.

Its the browser, I have had that to, I'm using IDM program to accelerate the downloads to max the speed.
If you are using Chrome, try to enable/disable this setting: chrome://flags/#enable-parallel-downloading
