    Well, FileFront is going offline by the end of the month. Where should I host the files now? I've used Atomic Gamer in the past, but the wait time has not been popular.

    I use rapidshare myself. (4,700+ downloads so far, haven't gotten any complaints.)

    Without an account files uploaded there can only be downloaded 10 times before being deleted. There doesn't seem to be a way to get a Collector's account and I don't want to pay for premium.

    Yeah, that gave me some trouble, but I do have an account now and I'm not paying. There's atomicgamer too, ofcourse (but they have a DL waiting period). And then there's SourceForge.

    So how do you get a free account there? There doesn't appear to be a signup page.

    Strategy Informer has a 500MB limit, so I've gone with them now.

    Also seems to be a pretty popular site for mods. Thomas War has nearly 5,000 downloads from there, which is as many as he's gotten from this site.

    I've decided to go with filedropper. I'll reupload the 1.20 patch tonight and the rest of the mod tomorrow (FinalFrontierFlat and Convert Production to Espionage have both been uploaded to CFC).

    Not to sound nagging, but remember to also upload the art and sound zip files because the link at the top there under "download latest version" is a dead link.


    Thanks, love ur work brotha!

    I think they pulled the file. I think I'll have to use Atomic Gamer again. At least I can keep track of the files there. I don't have time to do anything about it now, though.

    I also came across this post in the "Filefront is closing" thread:

    At least one modder has taken MarineCorps up on his offer.

    As it turns out, the first copy of it on Atomic Gamer is still there, so I didn't have to reupload anything. It also has a copy of the main mod, but it's beta 3. Let me know if the main mod or patch ever go offline.

    Still works on may end (and there are no other patch versions online; I don't even have them, actually).
