True, there's no download link or content there and in a couple of other months yet.

Hello,


I decided to move the thread to the "TS3 Downlaods Support" section. Smile  That said, there is an official thread already, where you can post these things:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t12688-official-mediafire-alternative-out-now-link-feedback


However, I guess that most pages that are missing have already been reportd in that thread...keep in mind though that there is no ETA yet, as to the completion date of this page. Sorry.

Great! Nothing like being a powerful moderator like you to get things done around Smile

I know that I promised to upload some kind of torrent as a temporary solution, sorry for not having done it yet, I need to put all files together and learn how to upload torrents properly.

Kickass site won't allow me to upload torrents, when I asked for authorization they were very harsh and "denied my request". Piratebay was down back then, and I honestly feel very concerned about safety after the relaunch of the site, since it acted up many times and I would get fake stuff whenever I tried downloading from them (it seems to be fixed, but I just "migrated" to kickass for my downloads, and other torrent sites when I can't find what I need there, but that's a good side of their "pickyness").

Only recently I noticed that I don't need to upload a torrent to a site like that, I can upload a tiny .torrent file somewhere (maybe admin can host it), or perhaps I could even create magnet links (is it possible to do it without a torrent site like piratebay?).

I will look into it on the next few days and upload a torrent with all the Store Content I use, plus a couple of essential CCs that I have (very essential, like rabbit hole rugs and ramps that are a type of stairs).

Below is the stuff I have from the store (mostly from Rachel's toolbox, the rest from here and those links you shared with the new stuff individualized, that one you told me to get when I asked you about it last year and which works greatly, by the way) in my installers folder, am I missing something or can I upload it like that as a "final collection"?

Thanks for the info. After posting that I noticed many other "dead" pages, including most of 2014 listings, so assumed some major (to me at least) site issue.

(FWIW, I was seeking a store item i had downloaded from here months ago which disappeared from my game. Just my luck it is apparently on one of those dead pages.)

Sorry to hear that. Would it be useful to you if I uploaded a torrent with all my stuff like I posted above (you'd have to install entire years of the store, since they are packed into a single file each, as you can read from my list, meaning you can't pick just "what you want" if you need to save space or want a lighter run)?

Hi there,

Yes, it can be hosted if you like. Just send me a PM.
A magnet link is a link with all the tracker names in it. When you load that magnet link into your Bittorrent client, it'll tell the client where it can find the actual .torrent file. It's a bit slower at first, because it first has to find all the pieces of the .torrent file, download those pieces, and then start downloading the actual file. But other than that it's very useful, because you don't need a central server for magnet links to work. You can copy magnet links right from your Bittorrent client. (Right-click on the file, and look for an option called something like "Copy Magnet Link")
Before doing so, make sure that the list of trackers that is assigned to the .torrent file is up-to-date.

Thanks! I will do some research, so I learn the basics and upload my first torrent ever. Cool!

Thank you for the offer. Fortunately a bit more research divuged I actually had the lost files, just not independently. The Tropical Aquarium I had downloaded from here as a single item and the sauna I'd found elsewhere were lost; but both are part of Sunlit Tides, which I had but not yet installed. So installing ST took care of that issue.

The main problem with establishing a torrent is that the initial host (your computer, I assume) needs to be online as much as possible (preferably "24/7") until enough people have downloaded the file that there is a pool of seeds for further downloads. I had an old XP desktop that was too weak for anything else, but with a pair of 500g HDs made an excellent host for seeding (lol, it now does duty as host for mp3 files, replacing two turntables and two tape decks).

Sorry to hear about that, but as I said many times (to other users) before, you can also google for any missing store items too. Before TS4 came out, I used to upload myself many "store requests", and a number of store items can be found in my threads here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/f13-buy-mode-objects

And there is this here too:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t16577-sweet-bakery-and-beautiful-garden


But I don't do this nowadays anymore, since I can't get back to all individual requests anymore. If you are still missing any items, then again you can google them. 


@SvenT and @Admin too, see my reply in the other post about this very issue:

Lol, I spent an afternoon and evening searching. Eventually I discerned which aquarium I sought (Tropical Aquarium), then discovered it was a store item so knew I'd gotten it here. I went through the store library here, month by month, from '09 through '14, and ...well, I reported the results. Then I read somewhere the Tropical Aquarium was included in Sunlit Tides, which I had but had yet to install; so problem solved.

Thanks for the links, my main interest is in having as many build/buy options and venues as feasible (I love any game that lets me build things ...I was addicted to the Morrowind Construction Set).

Alright, after some looking it seems you are referring to the topic about the bakery and garden. Please try the bit.ly links in the opening post then, if you haven't done so yet.

There were problems a little while ago with goo.gl links, which is the reason we are now mainly using bit.ly links instead. Also, if possible, if you see a non-working link in general please always give the exact thread location where you saw the link. Smile

No problem; I just wanted to have this clarified. Smile  As the original problem seems solved, I'll close the thread. Feel free to contact me via PM if you want the thread re-opened.
