UT2k4 & UT3 Redirect....
Permalink  
 


for fastest download of maps ,mutators & other(sounds packs,characters & all custom content) ut servers use redirect:


when u are on a server if u vote for a custom map that isnt installed on yer hard disk ;u will have to download it from the server but.....u can imagine that if 10 players need to dl the files in same time it will crap the server...too much broadband allowed to downloads kill the ping & game
that s why only a very little part of the broadband is used for the direct dl...and that s why it s so slooooooooow!

to prevent any damage on the "playing connection part" and to prevent hours of slow direct download servers use "redirect"; they redirect ya on the custom content database and u dl the content from there:

the files are compressed (upk.uz3 and ut3.uz3 files for ut3) and stored on a "giant" database :since years gameservers database was use by the majority of ut servers
; all compressed files are stored on the database and the database is linked to the server via the inifiles of the server itself

unfortunatly some weeks ago gameservers have killed their database and many redirected servers content was lost or fraqd

that s why sometimes since some weeks while trying to download custom content like maps or simply ut comp or custom ut mutators u ll have to wait hours to grab some kb.....uncompressed files

some servers now are connected on new different databases redirect and work again
