Mirrors for Downloads

Postby ErkDog » 12 Jan 2015, 00:44

Hey Guys,

I'm sure the maps, mods, etc downloads chew up a fantastic amount of bandwidth, plus they are a little slowish.

I own/operate a performance oriented hosting provider and we provide very fast download speeds.

Have you considered setting up a mirror system so that people with fast hosting can contribute to downloads?

It wouldn't be very hard to setup, RSYNC with some keys & then some simple DNS entries and boom.

And you could have a mirror region setting in the settings would allow you to make it so that people could hit a specific region's DNS host such as:

europe.content.faforeveror us.content.faforever

Let me know if this is something you'd like to dig into.

Thanks,
ErkDog

You guys aren't interested in increasing performance, decreasing load, and saving bandwidth and setting up a mirror system??? :(

You have to PM Visionik, the admin, for that, and have a serious discussion about this, not just post a message in the forum.
