it's just plain being retarded.
I'd say something here but...

If you can't use WinRAR or 7-zip, then I'm afraid you should give up on using mods. It's a very basic skill of computer usage.

I hadn't used WinRAR for many years, among other things because it isn't free, but I downloaded it to check if the multipart extracts fine with WinRAR. It does, of course. Amazing how some people have to blame others as a matter of course.

Free download files can't be unzipped

I can download all of the files just fine, but when I try to add them into the game, there is a problem. Since the files have their number (001, 002, etc.) at the very end of the name for the files, my computer sees them as .001 files, or .002 or whatever the number is. I try to rename them by getting rid of the number at the end, and turning them into 7zip files by doing so, but 7zip still can't open the archive. The def file is just fine, however.

I think this is the right place for this, since it is about the files and not problems with the mod itself, but I'm pretty new to the forum, so if it's not the right place, sorry for that...

As stated on the help page hhaugland1 linked to, the .7z.001 … .7z.007 files you have downloaded are not mod packages to be directly added to your mod folder, but a multipart LZMA-compressed archive. You are to unpack it (them) by using the latest version of 7-Zip (or WinRAR), opening the .7z.001 file and extracting all the contents. You need to have all seven parts in the same location, and the programme will automatically recognize the contents spanning all files. It's a bit like an installation spanning multiple floppies or discs. The extracted .scs packages are what you then move to your mod folder and activate in the mod manager together with the def package.

When you rename the files you break the sequence and the files cannot be unpacked. You need to extract 001 only

So I just got blocked while downloading the MOD. I read every possible reason that was given for it.
Then I realized my browser has download accelerator. That's why sometime my download speed get upto 500kbps.
but I don't want to break any rules and get permanently banned. I respect the hard work that these modders has put into building this MOD.
and I respect their decision to charge a nominal fee for fast download. So choosing free download option next time I don't want to get in trouble.
How do I turn off this accelerator?

It depends on what kind of download accelerator you use.

You'll only get banned for a few hours. Download accelerators put unnecessary load on our servers hence why we don't allow them.

It appears from the logs you tried accessing the download from both your PC (Google Chrome) and Samsung Galaxy. Note, as we do the blocking on a per-IP basis this will get your IP blocked very quickly. Chrome does not have a download accelerator built in. Also, try another browser such as Firefox or Microsoft Edge.
