So I just found out that FilePlanet (as far as I can tell) is officially dead. Almost every download link I come across returns a "403 Forbidden" or "404" error.

 

Basically, a small but sizeable chunk of our file links just died overnight.

 

I think moving all our FilePlanet links should be high priority. At least with Gamefront links they can still be accessed.

 

The good news is that Gamefront has (for the most part) the same files as FilePlanet, so replacing common files should be easy. For the more obscure files, the Internet Archive has managed to archive all the files available from FilePlanet into a collection of massive TAR files (link) where the files can be downloaded individually.

 

EDIT: Nevermind, Garrett was right.

This FilePlanet problem seems to be some temporary issue at their end; forcing a refresh (Ctrl+F5) makes links work again after a few attempts.

 

FilePlanet links that are dead forever (and have been for years) show a Mario 404 error instead.

FilePlanet stuff always worked fine for me but yeh quickly get them up if possible. I've also recently uploaded a giant mod pack for Spore including 450 mods, is that fine? Seeing as in the future these mods will be almost unobtainable, most of them already having completely dead links.

Sure it is fine. It would be great if you list what is inside those 450 Mods and if it is separate it would be best to upload it separately.

Wouldn't general mods be more "appreciated" on a dedicated website? I mean.. if they don't fix anything I guess the best place would be moddb or nexusmod

 

ps:i'm back
