    We just finished the infrastructure work on the CDN and are happy to announce that all mod downloads will be using our brand new content delivery network now :)

    How it works: we use a service provider that caches the content for us using local nodes. So for example if someone downloads a file in south america, it will get pulled onto that cache, the 2nd download would be a LOT faster.

    If you have time, you can test if the mod download speed got any better for you.

    If you experience problems, please let us know here

    I have run into a problem: 403 Forbidden when trying to grab this: http://www.beamng.com/resources/guardrail.5/ via the Manual download button.

    Sorry for the delays in approvals again! All mod updates should now be approved. Don't hesitate to send me a PM if your update is still waiting.

    Ah, I did notice that my numbers weren't going up. It didn't occur to me that the counters were broken! Looks like a nice, healthy graph.

    We finally found a way to allow us to approve updates, we had to extend the xenforo software for that, which took a bit trial and error. The system is not perfect yet, but we will improve it in the next days.

    Yes, download counters fixed.

    Also, will be upgrading the system now. Downtime of the advanced functions: ~1 hour.

    if you have an account hit install and reload your game if this doesn't work hit download and put the file in your beamng drive mods folder and then reload your game

    I improved the usernames: clicking on them leads to the resources of that user now instead to his profile. A lot more useful i think.

    I'm kinda having trouble, I am trying to upload a vehicle config., I just don't know how to change from .PC, to .ZIP, I may probably sound dumb asking this, but, what do I do?
