Ah ok, thanks.

Was funny: The file was not recognized in the Mod manager the first hand (tripple checked). I could not open it so I thougt it was corrupt. The same for a second download.

So I wrote the post here. After that I saw that the mod was seen in the Mod manager.

So all is good. :)

I have paid, 2 times now for the newest version. The trailer pack is no problem. I download it with in a few seconds, but the Promods file of 1,7 gig is only being downloaded with about 140 kbps.
I took so long it failed. and then my download link expired. I have now paid for the second time for this file but still the speed is verry verry slow at about 140 kbps.
I have always paid for my donwloads an never had an problem like this, this is the first time only with this file.
And no its not my connection. When i do a speed test, its about 5 to 6 MB per second, and also, like i said the trailer addon was done witihin a few seconds. eventough its just a smal file but with only a few Kb of download that should have taken way longer than it did. Maybe you need to check with Payloadz if everything is ok.

Get a better internet connect amd provider. 5 to 6 MB is slow. I have always paid and never had problems and always follow the instructions. If your only have 5 to 6 MB the your download should take 10 minutes and should not time out. I have internet speed of 110 Mbps with 6mbps upload and Promods take about 60 to 80 second to download. Contact the Admin team and they should be able to help you if you have really paid they can check there system against your Paypal email address.

Well Im sorry, im not an data specialist, but correct me if im wrong: Im complaining about the download speed the site gives me, which was around 140 kbps, in my book thats a hell lot less than 5 to 6 Mbps, which for me happens to be fast enough. And the trailer pack had a lot faster download speed. I recently downgraded from 30Mbps to 6 cause you dont need that speed. Most of the internet doesnt provide a faster upload so all that extra speed/money is wasted anyway. and i dont care taking a bit longer to download stuff, i took that in considration before i downgraded. But thats my humble opnion. Anyways, the file finally downloaded and i installed it. Great job on the Promods team for this awesome mod once again. Cheers.

Well let's state first of all that 140kbps is abnormal and below the normal performance.

The speed you can obtain depends on the connectivity between your PC (via your ISP) and Amazon S3.
There could be factors that could temporarily disrupt that connection because of gateway issues, time-outs, or other latency problems.

Generally speaking the download should run at least at 1MB/s, but depending on the maximum capacity of your connection and ISP you could get up to 10MB/s or even beyond that.

If the download failed and you require assistance then please send us an e-mail and we can review payment and send a new link.

Is there a way to pay for a paid download with actual paypal money?

Even if I would like to provide them my credit card data, I only have a debit ones. I could get a virtual credit VISA but it will take me a few days. Partial download going on so far...

Yes you can already do this. If you have a PayPal account that is charged by Bank Transfer or otherwise, you can use it to pay for the Payloadz link.
