    *i meant direct download.
    This is safe. If it doesnt say that on the download dont download it.
    Im not 100% sure because ive never got anything off of it but from what others say it seems fine

    You do have to worry, just less than with the direct download. You never know what they put in the files of their mods. And most of their mods are bad.

    Exactly. Downloafing mods from there is usually not worth the time. Not only you can get a virus, but also the mod itself would be crap. The best mods on those sites are re-upload versions of forum and repo mods, so, just download from here.

    Here's one mod from modland.net, This mod doesn't just have bad crash physics.. But its also a leaked mod from @Alexio and @Fralexio though almost all of their mods are leaked.
    The mod is bad because it's an unedited H-series jbeam and there's no broken headlights texture.
    Alos sucks because when the van and the h-series are spawned, the h-series is N O T E X T U R E.
