There seem to be a lot with levels that are not available any more which is probably the reason a lot of these servers are not played. Is there anything we can do?

That would be nice... there was a midwest server up in the Twin Cities meaning that I'd get the best ping (I'm pretty sure) and it bummed me out when I found out I couldn't join the game because I couldn't download the level..

When a level is not available, I just download it from Here & then put it in the d3 missions folder.
Unless of course the level the server running isn't listed there, then I would need the level auto downloadable.

Whenever I decide to host a level on Crypt1 I always run a test to see if its DLable either from the listed hosts or planetdescent.

I have a bunch of old levs in missions and I really dont want to host something that no one can play.

Although I do tend to host HIGHLY underplayed levels. :P

Yeah I have done that a couple of times. But most players are too lazy (inluding me most of the time) to do that and I end up playing the level by myself.

I am going to go through some of the servers and make a list of undownloadable levels.

If the levels are going to need updates I guess I could host them on my server for auto download too.

I was solving these problems a year ago with Koolbear.

I will re-release all undownloadable missions in a few weeks and serve them to the serverops, like I did already once.

I just need some time to do this...

If someone does have it, then send it over to me. I have a batch of levels that should have long since been posted on the site; I'll throw that one in as well.

BTW: The download links CAN differ from server to server ok? So if there is a mission running on one server with NO working links, there could be another one with the same level but working links...

For example: I am hosting a server with Canyon Siege atm that DOES have 3 working links. This mission GOT an URL-update already by me, but the serverops have to get that updates and overwrite their old / outdated missions then. As Canyon Siege is from DwnUndr I'll mail him to enforce him to send TopGun a file...

Like i said: I will try to get a major update together in some time and inform all the Gameserver-Ops to update their files...

Erm. BTW: Just got an email from DwnUndr who told me \"I just downloaded Canyon from PD and checked the urls, they are the new ones you must have put there. So, it seems to be updated.\"

Ergo: The Label for \"Canyon Siege\" is \"Canyon\" at PD so it IS there already :-)

You know what the sad thing is? I downloaded that level myself yesterday after seeing it on a populated server, and I had the same confusion myself as to whether or not this was the Canyon Siege everyone was always talking about. :P I've gone ahead and changed the label in the PD database, so hopefully no one else will be confused about this.
