Read this first before you download: Dead links
« on: 5 December 2014, 20:22:24 »
Before downloading any mod, read this first; because there are dead links (or download errors/lost files) found all over the place. Expansions of the list are welcome; just post here.
Links include old vanilla Glest mod files.
The files list (some) are included below.

> https://forum.megaglest.org/index.php?topic=9605.msg91565#msg91565

I have been inactive for 4 years since 2010, take note.

Older thread post below:
-----

I am back!

Since I came here:
It appears that most mods and the maps tilesets, around cannot be downloaded because they are outdated or cannot be found.

Much of the files I downloaded used to play the strategy game are no longer available to me.

What's happening? Please reply.

Great to see you back Carl.

Could you elaborate what you mean that in that maps cannot be downloaded.

are you trying to download maps/tilesets/techtrees from the mod download center.

Or is it something else?. Do you have the maps yourself?

are you hosting yourself or are using the headless servers provided by the MG team?.

I never played this game for years since I used another computer with a faster internet connection; and got busy with other media.

are you trying to download maps/tilesets/techtrees from the mod download center.
It worked fine; the download center in-game is a great addition though.

are you hosting yourself or are using the headless servers provided by the MG team?.
I don't host servers, I just enjoy the game.

Much of the older threads of this forum have links that say "file not found" or redirect to main site. I go to the older threads like the maps made by seanmc and the map of Japan (recently exploring the forums today), all ending up with links not found.

Remember Magitech Refit? That's the one with the walls and everything. (Download link is already a dead link by now)

There is more, so please tell me everything I missed.

Thanks!  ;)

Thanks!  ;)

Ok, it is when freehoster be used. If not enough downloads, then delete freehoster the entries. The Japan-map should be available again now. (for a certain time  ;D)

download: (japan_256_b3.mgm) --> http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=46880326856365617951

Fortunately, I found the thread that has the working Magitech-refit (still not complete) zip file.

Also, the thread to older files such as the almost complete Woodsmen (I wanted to see bears in this techtree); once it was an archive, now I cannot access it myself (where were the files that have a suffix "unstable"?).

There is a lot to discuss! Also (just now), with my imagination, I have come up with a techtree!
Thanks!  ;)

Many mods are simply downloadable in the game itself now! => modcenter!
Try Megaglest! Improved Engine / New factions / New tilesets / New maps / New scenarios

I know, right? I used the "modcenter" titi mentioned. Maps, mods, tilesets, anything; including the Japanese faction; but unfortunately, the Megaglest wiki has pictures different from in-game. For example: the Teppo-ashigaru banners and straw hats are colored in-game; but in the wiki, there is the hiragana "gu" written on the banners and black straw hats. Also the Yumi-ashigaru have brown bows in the pictures rather than black ones from in-game.

Is there other working projects that I can interest in trying in? I would've expected a purely medieval faction/techree that I appreciate greatly!
