I was thinking about setting up a player models download server, once the final version of sc4 is released. You can get your player models through that instead of downloading my player models pack.

How I'd have it setup is that I'd run it on the comp that hosted the old server, split the download across 7 maps(4 letters per map, A-D, E-H, etc.) that would change like every 10 minutes, it doesn't matter having a fast map change set since you'll be on the fast dl most likely when it changes which won't effect your dl.

The only thing is I wouldn't really be able to set this up until the final version of sc4 is released where there won't be anymore changes to the model anims in sc.

I'd have it set up so you can only dl from the fast dl, if you reconnect you won't get more models until the map changes(leaving the player models off of the server and having them on the fast dl only.)


As for fixing player model animations, you can use a model decompiler/compiler and copy over the new anims from a different model if the bones are the same in both models. There used to a guide on the sc forum for fixing model anims for sc3 and it had a link to a decompiler/compiler that worked, don't know if it's still on that forum.

I think it's a good idea, but will you get the preview pics? Or credits files?
Hmm, I suppose that's not a big issue for people who just want to play and see all the cool models while they're playing.

I would pimp it in it's own thread here, but every time FF messes me up, I have to go around to everywhere it's posted and fix all of the DL links :/

I could create preview pics that dl from the server, but for like over 500 player models it would be very hard to get credits(as in model/author info txt files you see in some player models) for all of them.

Sometimes I don't think some authors don't want to be credited. Or they just forget to do that.
