Hello! If I click on the free download link, I get a message that warns me that Website is blocked due to malware
Your Malwarebytes Premium blocked this website because it may contain malware. We strongly recommend you do not continue. I like to pay for downloading, but I do not want to use paypal because they are expensive. I had no problem with free download before. Maybe a third solution? Unfortunately, this is unsafe.

Thanks!

Disable Malwarebytes.

The adds shown by adfly are safe. Just don't click on them, and nothing will happen. No strange sites will open.

Some say, I'm addicted to ETS2. But then I say. No, it's ProMods, it's a way of life.

Hello. Is there a reason you do not use Sharemods as your mod host? Their DL speeds are way better than the current host you have, plus bigger file archive sizes meaning fewer splits. Seems like a no-brainer, no?

Okay. I understand. Reliability is your priority. No worries.

Also, if I told you how much bandwidth our download servers used in a month when a release happens along with what speeds they're transferring at you'll cough up your lunch. It is a very large number... Many sites simply won't cope with the multiple TB of data we transfer per hour (hint). Sharemods especially. We've outgrown almost every option so had to build our own.

Why is it that it takes me over two hours to install a mod. At least let us torrent.

It's an "Apple" kind of thing to do. Anti Consumer. Would also be fine with paying once for the fast track install instead of every update.

For slow downloads you need to contact you ISP. We can't do much, or anything, about that.

Besides that, you do not pay for the mod. Our mod is, and will always be, free.
Where you pay for, is the bandwidth you use. And you use bandwidth with every download. That's why you need to pay that awful high amount of 1 dollar with every update.

Our paid files are hosted on Amazon AWS which can pump out 100MB/s or faster.. any slow downloads are ISP/local issues
As for the free files, well if you chose that option you will have to spend more time
