Not because of dominion content itself, I like the changes they do 0.0. Infact it doesnt affect me because I am a badass pirate.

But I fear the download the day itself, last march it was a 1 gb download. When I try to upgrade from a normal client to sisi now, it sais I have to download 2.8 GB.

It takes me 2 hours to do that, thats not bad can cause I ccan just leave computer on and do other stuff, but when everybody start doing that (30k connections online any moment of the day), what kind of downloads speeds we gonna get then? Is there a plan for this?

be glad, the WoW client is over 10 GB Wink

imagine the poor bastard that comes home with a box to try this thing all of his friends are playing...and then he needs to download 10GB :D

i must admit though their trial client is amazing, only takes a few mega, and downloads and expands the game as you play.

I just checked, the current TQ > sisi patch is 500mb. 2,8gb is the full client since it can't find a proper patch.

On all the patch days, I'v only gotten max download speed on my connection (1,2mb/s) here. They use a high bandwith CDN network to deliver patches and the like, so bandwith should be good.

What would be a good idea in my eyes is if they split the .exe up into rar part files...

If it were 20 gb at 50kbps maybe I wouldn't have to share that game with so many idiots...

I won't mind a 1GB patch so much so long as I can get a headstart on the download and have some nice stories to read while it downloads.

The most exciting thing about Apoc was being able to read a fantastic news broadcast while it downloaded. Really helped hype things up.

What's your point? Yea a good part was a graphics update, but isn't that graphics update also being delivered in the final patch?

two hours to download almost 3gb? Oh you poor thing, how on earth do you manage?

Seriously, WTF? My GOOD connection maxes it's downloads at about 100kb/s and that's ADSL, the best type of connection available in the area, the connection I'm on RIGHT NOW however maxes it's downloads at 6kb/s if the weather is good. 6kb/s.

You'll get no sympathy from me.

Nice, should take just under 2 minutes then if the patch remain at 500mb.

*sigh*

Sharing the game with "idiots" is kinda the point of the game. If you don't like it, X3 is thata way >>>>

Read my post properly. We weren't even referring to EVE...

X3 is still win. But it's missing that certain...human interaction part of the MMO equation that we all play EvE for. At least, I assume that we all play eve to interact with other humans while having fun.


And a pre-load (ala Steam's system) setup so that you can still play while getting the update would be awesome. Simply let players download the bulk of the update (models, textures, etc.), and then have the client run the normal update installer (which would download any extra files that are not quite complete) at/after a CCP-specified date.


Or just give us something that will take the entire download process to read/do. That's a bit easier.


Or you can just go play something offline for the time it takes. That's probably what I'll do.

The sisi patch is probably a good gauge of how large the final thing will be, at least as a guideline. Smile

Apocrypha was so big because it added 5000 odd systems to the game.
By comparison dominion adds very little actual content and resources so the download will be of a far more reasonable size.

Having said that I do hope they allow us to d/l the patch a day or two before to reduce the load on their servers, or as chribba said a torrent would be great.

Sad times are these when small updates/patches are touted as good things.

I would love to DL 10 gigs of new EVE content. Even if i had to do it on an early 90's modem, i wouldn't complain.

Actually it wasn't very funny. It was pretty bad. You should be ashamed. Seriously, terrible, terrible over-used joke that is suggested at least two dozen times per expansion in threads akin to these.

Does the EVE download system support DHT?

If so they could setup a magnet system and have everyone leaching off each other.

If you really want to deal with the patch day download, you would just do the traditional method. CCP puts up a release candidate a week or so before D day, letting people download it over the week, perhaps even at night. Then on patch day you just need to download an updater that has the differences between the RC and final code, so graphics and even code that was not changed in the last couple of weeks would not need to be downloaded on patch day.
