*update 2* All Sims 3 downloads are now in the cloud and you will notice MUCH faster loading times for those pages as well. Sims 2 is underway and will be launched soon. Enjoy!
*update* Due to an unforseen bug we need to postpone this rollout a few days - downloads will resume as they were until then. We will update you when we have solved the problems.
In an effort to make TSR better we have made some pretty significant changes under the hood. We are hard at work on the next version of TSR and part of that involves moving our entire site infrastructure, database and file serving into the cloud. We decided that the downloads should be moved into the cloud also for v7 and starting today you will notice much faster download speeds and loading times on the download pages.
In the process we had to get rid of some download options:
- We have removed the .tsr download option for sets as it was no longer fully working.
- The option to download single item sims3pack as Zip files has been removed.
All sims3pack files are transfered in compressed form so there is no gain in keeping them in Zip archives. Sets are still downloaded as Zip archives however.
If you have any problems with our new cloud-based downloading, don't hesitate to contact our support desk.
We hope you enjoy our changes and there are lots more to come!
