Hello fellow!

Do you have a discord server? And if not, what do you think about this? It's very popular between gamers, mods, even companies etc. Smile

I am looking at discord and possibly my own servers now that I have fiber optic but it will only become available when I have completed the new engine which is still a ways off.

So far after testing several games hosted by discord I am not happy with it. Disconnections, stalls and long down times are the main reasons I may not use it. It appears to me that they are way overselling thier service which is the main cause of all the problems, will look at other hosting solutions.

i think the idea behind the question was more to have a community server where people could maybe get updates/discuss stalkersoup/share content more readily and frequently. not to host games on there, its mainly a chat client.

TB has been looking for a proper, professional hosting service for a long time. A Dropbox Pro account was unsuitable because it couldn't cope with the sheer amount of downloads. ModDB was found to be a very dated platform, which now only hosts StalkerSoup's previous obsolete builds. Mega is clunky, and demands a paid-for account to do a full download in one go

Which means that the main means of downloading the game currently is via torrents seeded by players, which is considerably inconsistent depending on which time zone you're in, and whose PC's are actually running  No

It was a big move when this forum was forced to separate from Steam five years ago, so notwithstanding the feasibility of a more modern chat client, and assuming that we wanted to move away from this now well-established forum, wouldn't it make better sense to use the associated client of a decent hosting service from which you could also download the game itself?

Since most people who play games use discord for dozens of different games it makes sense from a player perspective to ask about something that, for most of us is pretty common/standard in gaming atm Smile

I also would like to point out that if Anomaly can exist on moddb with its hundreds of mods (games is available by moddb, torrent and dropbox/mega) stalkersoup could too!
There is always nexusmods too altho you need an account there to download.

Azzy

how big is the mod in its current state? as in, version 1.10019.1. would it be possible to make a 7z repack of the current version and host it on google drive? you get 15gbs free, if its over that google drive isnt too expensive though i would understand not wanting to rely on paid hosting. this method would be much easier than what there is now, and you could create a locked (as in, one only admins would have permissions to post/edit messages in but others can still see) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] channel on the discord that consists of only a link to the google drive repack.

what azmoden said is also true, moddb is a fine platform. plenty of other large mods use it

The current download for version 1.10012 of the base game plus its verifier is 7.22Gb, and the Updater carries it forward after that

I should have included that it's also available on Google Drive [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] as mentioned in the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

is the updater really necessary? i'm wondering how big it is after the updater has done its thing, and whether that could be uploaded in full instead.

Ok, back on the subject, a discord server channel could be great.
I mean, I'm part of other communities, like Macross.
And one thing we learned the hard way, is that forums are like something else from the past.
Many are not able to join or register, unlike dinosaurs like me, hahahaha....

On the other hand, we have also experienced the "goodness" of Facebook groups, where we can't wait to leave.
And we have discovered that discord is the best evolution of forums like this one.

Unfortunately there is information that will be lost in the forum.
It happened to us with our old forum that not even the bot spammers visit it, haha.

But I will say that, although at first it may seem a bit weird or overwhelming system, the experience improves a lot.
