Hey, is FS2files for anything related to FS and TCs based on the FSO engine (e.g. Star Wars, Diaspora, Wing Commander, TBP), or is it just strictly for mods based in the FS2-verse?

Anything to do with FS is allowed. There are already numerous TC folders there.

Is FreeSpace Files sticking around for a few more years?

Well, unless I can't afford the server bills due to debt or death, then I would assume it will stick around! Sectorgame has been online for most of the past 15 years. :)

You say most, has it been offline before?

We've moved servers a few times, that usually causes some downtime. I last switched servers in June 2015; I think we were offline for a few days. Before that.. possibly a few days in 2012? Can't remember much beyond that. There is sometimes a software/hardware failure that causes an outage. Overall though, we've been steady for about a decade now.

Hello! Well, I've been doing some tinkering here and there and I've decided to implement private accounts for FreeSpace Files - again. This time though, you don't need to obtain user details from me, you can do it automatically by registering on the site. Here is how to do it:

First go to the homepage, then in the drop down menu select 'My Repository'
Image
Register an account - Enter your Username, Password & E-mail. Once you've verified it, you'll be presented with the upload and create options:
Image
Drag and drop files, or press the button to select up to 20 files at a time, which will then automatically be uploaded:
Image
Once everything is uploaded, you can do whatever you like including rename, move, delete and share files. Select one or multiple files to generate a share link:
Image
Copy and paste the share link, then post it wherever you like. Those files will then be downloadable by the public:'
Image
All files are private unless you decide to share them.

I got an error on the forum yesterday but I guess that was what was going on and just waited until today to come back.

BTW, is the FTP ever coming back?
