    Two days is a mighty long transfer time. How is that split up, exactly? Where is the bulk of the time necessary being allocated?

    Two days is just an estimate; it might not take that long. Also, it might take a day or so for the new civfanatics.com IP address to propagate to the DNS servers.

    Will there be some sort of offsite blog or something for information while the site is down?

    Good question. I'll ask the rest of the staff about using our Facebook or Twitter presence to update our status.

    Definitely Twitter in addition to FB, please. Some here prefer not to use Facebook.

    Two other questions: Will the posts in the social groups be affected in any way, or peoples' PMs? Some forum activities rely heavily on both of these.

    The migration is going quicker than expected. Thunderfall will close Civfanatics.com tonight (Friday, July 24) at 10 PM Eastern time.He expects the site to be down for the entire weekend, perhaps longer if the migration doesn't go smoothly. Check our Twitter or Facebook pages for updates. (You don't need a Twitter or Facebook account to read the information.)

    I'm also hoping that it won't effect posts within CFC. As with what happened with the older DYOS threads.

    On a page such as

    https://forums.civfanatics.com/resources/bts-civ-gold-4-0-final.7742/

    The only download link is a link to the defunct Atomic Gamer site. I cannot find any migration or redirect or other advice.

    What was the end result? That "We expect that all posts, attachments and other files will be preserved." was a false hope?

    Thanks

    Many mods, including the one you tried to access, were hosted directly by Atomic Gamer, and not through CFC. As Petek noted during the forum migration:

    @kazapp, I'll check around for the file.

    Unfortunately, for the mods that were hosted on other sites such as AtomicGamer, we don't have a local copy here.

    It may be worth a try to contact the modder, to see if he still has it and is willing to upload somewhere which we can take and host it locally....

    up yours!
    Contact the modder, or start a thread in the appropriate forum to see whether anybody has a copy. I have reuploaded some Civ3 mods myself but some are still lost until they are dug out from old installs, backup CDs/DVDs/pendrives, etc.

    and even check Apolyton if your taste buds can take it
