Thanx Hal, I'll look into hosting possibilities then, I already tried a few freebie folks out there but there are so many restrictions on them and like FP ads ads ads.
Geocities exited out. Theres another one like that I think still active.

"My Opera" community site give you 2GB of storage.
-Pros:
Free, fast, no adverts, no bandwidth limit.
-Cons:
No Rar uploads and filesize limit of 60 or 90 MB (can't remember) , so you have to make multi-file archives of large uploads.

Sorry for digging up this thread, but there is some interesting things yeah like those non resorted files who were pretty much put into those subpar sites like Ram2000, random mod sites here and there (some of them were even wiped out for no reason); I managed to salvage some and put them at moddb, but I was a bit alone and that was mainly because some of those sites were broken during a vast period.

I can also despise the download manager who was forced if you were an internet explorer user (that made me mad and change browser from the get go)
the sort of artificial delays, the files who sometimes randomly disappeared.
This was worse than the ****ty forced registration who was quite a crappy thing all by itself.

I think Fileplanet in itself was a good thing, but it was just poorly managed and done. I personally don't care about ads if they don't make browning and downloading being a painful process. but the site went acceptable when its frequentation diminished a lot.

I'm still sad though as I always like to get stuff from those sites for my old games

FilePlanet simply represents a time in GameSpy's life that was not very good.
Gamespy's life is not a good time in Gamespy's life. May the whole system burn in hell.

The problem is that when these old sites finally go down, they might take a lot of files with them....files that may not see the light of day again. I have spent a lot of time on fileplanet trying to grab what I can before it all goes down.

Does anyone have an archive of these files anywhere? I mean, I agree that the site sucks, but for a time it was a popular place to host content.

I have sh*tload of files for Unreal and all 4 UT-series games....not a lot of mods but mostly maps, some mods, some SP maps stuff, voices, skins, etc. I might not have everything people want, but it is a lot. Here's a quick rundown of the size of subdirectories:

Unreal > 3.56 GB
UT > 11.2 GB
UT2003 > 4.11 GB
UT2004 > 11.4 GB
UT3 > 45.5 GB

Now, some of this is patches and other stuff, but just letting people know that I have stuff. The next step is putting it up for download. Let me know if anyone wants to host this at anytime in the future. I can upload it somewhere.

SkaarjMaster;

Cool! I hope included in your (and my) collections are the files that were on Fileplanet. That was kinda what i meant; what happens to all of those files when a place like that closes? Are they "stored" somewhere or just deleted into cyber ether?

Here is a mirror of some of the old files.
http://www.gamers.org/pub/idgames2/p.../planetunreal/
There were a few FTP mirrors, but gradually the hosts have been deleting them. This is the last one I can find.
The robots file is blocking scanning, so search engines do knot know much about it, and a site-rip will take a while

I ripped it with FileZilla...didn't take too long.

For the record, there is nothing in there that can't be found elsewhere, so nothing there is lost.

I know it wasn't on fileplanet but I still wonder about the old "Index.unr" lobby map that was at unreal.epicgames.com/Files/Index.unr and was referenced from the servertips page. It hasn't been archived and the link went dead after a while too. It was useful before the 220 patch and gamespylite and integrated server browsers. I hope someone still has it archived.

The file used to be there, it's not a myth, if you saw my old thread about it you'd know that. Several people remember this map and i remember seeing it on the screenshots too. Far from being a myth.
If you'd go by that logic, all the originally leaked and almost forgotten unreal betas and alphas would be a myth too (which one or two is still out there).

If I didn't see that old thread, I wouldn't know that. And I didn't.

Anyhow, I guess we have a mission.

I prolly mentioned this elsewhere, but I recall getting on one of the early servers and they had a lobby map, no weapons, you ran thru some halls or wherever to go to an east coast or west coast server. Could have been custom made.

It was custom made, because teleports on the map had to have servers IPs specified to work, so it was made either by the server owner or one of the patrons.

Actually I believe it was the map just edited by the server owner, so the only difference was the server URL difference. The original intact map coul have been only downloaded from epic's site. I remember how it looked based on screenshots, so if the map gets found even from cache we know which one it is. It had starship textures for sure.

Well, I downloaded about 600GB of .tar files from the archive and came up with about 8GB of Unreal series files, mostly UT and Unreal, but nothing on that file. I plan to keep digging but so far, no luck.
