Dear everyone,

we are right now looking into the contents of our download database, including a check what things have been lost.
I have compiled a list of items, which don't seem to be available anymore.
Any help to find these downloads and to re-upload them again would be very appreciated.

It would be nice if everyone could have a look if they have the following downloads somewhere, so that we can fix all the broken links.

Thanks to everyone already :hatsoff:.

@The_J :
That the download of RaR 2.4 was lost is no problem because it was heavily outdated.
Newer downloads (e.g. RaR 2.7) are still available and WTP is basically the same mod, a straight nontinuation with just a new name.
(WTP fixes lots of bugs and adds lots of improvements and new content. We are also basically the same team.)

There is no need to reupload the old RaR 2.4 anymore. :thumbsup:
People would or will play updated WTP 3.X anyways.

Summary:
Do not worry.
It is ok. :hug:
 
My main concern here is that people will go through our downloads, and will get frustrated if stuff doesn't work, and I don't want that.
So if something is rightfully gone, then this is absolutely no problem for me :thumbsup:.
I do see that RaR 2.7 does not have an entry in our download database.
Would you mind taking the download for 2.4, rename it 2.7 and link it to 2.7?
Because I also like to have all the important downloads mentioned in our database :).
(I also could do that myself, if you don't feel like; otherwise I'd simply delete the entry, but I really like to have the database filled)
 
Ok, I will update the record and have it point to the newest WTP release.
(There is no point anymore to have it point to outdated RaR - as I said, the mod was just renamed.)

I will explain in the record. :thumbsup:
 
Hello @The_J,

Thanks for your work on this site (and of course also the fantastic Mars Now!) :borg::scan::thumbsup:

For the main database entry for Colonization 2071 (https://forums.civfanatics.com/resources/colonization-2071.15104/), I updated the post to guide players to the CivFanatics forum thread here, which should always have the most current download link and patch and install instructions (I couldn't find a way to remove the button to the upper right which says "Download Now Via external site").

For the following 2 very old versions, unfortunately I no longer have these due to a dead hard drive on my former PC. (These can be deleted since they were very early initial versions when I had just started work on this mod, and were not very fun/playable due to my limited mod skills at the time).
Colonization: 2071 version 0.02 https://forums.civfanatics.com/resources/colonization-2071-version-0-02.13994

:hatsoff: thanks for the help.
I've now deleted the 2 old versions, that was also one of my desired outcomes from this :).
I've updated the database entry to point to your thread, since that is probably anways what you wanted, right :)?

Thanks again :).
 
Okay, I've updated some links, because it seems that @Blake00 had already re-uploaded some of them :thumbsup:.
Now we have 15 dead links.
If everyone could have a look at their hard drive, what they have lying around, that'd be nice :).

That's weird. I didn't get a notification about that tag and it's still not in my recent notifications list either. Oh well thanks to your news post I found this thread anyway haha.

Yup while my personal focus has mostly been on Civ1-3 I always answer tag requests for help so have done a few Civ4 and Civ4Col rescues too! :) @JRL helped me with Mare Nostrum and said he has other Civ4Col mods but because of my lack of knowledge of the Civ4Col modding scene and what might be missing I wasn't able to make any specific requests, so this thread is great!!! I've chucked him a PM as maybe he can help save the day again! :)

I'm the admin of the Colonization fans Facebook, Reddit and Discord groups so I'll put the call out there too. :)

Yes I have :
the east indies 2.12
the east indies 2.16

these does not match what you want exactly

PlantationEconomy_v0.09b_v
I have a ein platz an der sonne silber 1.0 [and 1.1] [and 1.2]
inventor1.1 [looking into a readme file, this is by kailric. seems the 1.0 and 1.1d links are broken, but the patch to 1.1d downloads]
 
Ooohhh.... yes please.
For the east indies, I've deleted all older entries, and only kept the newest one for now, since I didn't want the database clogged with not-so-useful links, so I kept the 2.17.
I'd gladly take the 2.16, because even if it's not the very latest, it's still a lot of work and worth playing.
The others 2 please too :D.

Could you check for size? If they're bigger than 30 mb, then I'll give you an email where you can send them too (via Wetransfer).

East indies is 401,398k
Plantation 20,738k
Ein Platz 39,378k
inventor1.1 23.722k.
 
Thanks to @JRL I've updated the East Indies, plantation economy and Ein Platz an der Sonne :hatsoff:.

For the inventor mod, I'm confused, I need some help.
JRL has provided this attachment (see bottom).
The missing download is this: https://forums.civfanatics.com/resources/modcomp-new-profession-inventor-w-tech-tree.14540/
An existing download is this: https://forums.civfanatics.com/resources/modcomp-new-profession-inventor-w-tech-tree-co.14772/

Can someone confirm that the attachment to this post is the missing download, and not the existing download? I'd be thankful :).

Unfortunately I don't have Civ4Col installed at the moment and am not well versed in its mod file arrangements so I'm no help with the testing problem sorry!

HOWEVER I do have good news as I just got a bite on one of my social media posts about this thread. :) Are you on reddit @The_J to talk to this kind fellow? Or do you need me to facilitate the transfer?
