The 4shared site does not work properly with IE10. If you are using IE10 you need to ensure that you are using IE9 standards mode to access the download site.

[EDIT]Could you host the file on a site/service that does not require a log-in (e.g. GoogleDrive/DropBox).

I am not keen on using free sites that require log-ins for downloads or download applications.[/EDIT]

Download from 4shared doesn't need login.
Into the website, I add mirror download link to the Mediafire.

Well it kept telling me it does, perhaps it is an IE compatibility issue.

[EDIT]Mediafire link is not working - showing an empty shared folder?[/EDIT]

Gorgeous, Zeron-mk7!

Looks great; works great. Love the mooring points for capital ships.

A couple of small suggestions:
  • A small name change would distinguish your hub from Saetan's classic. Perhaps "Advanced Complex Hub 2.0" rather than "1.0"? Or "Advanced Complex Hub Mk2"? Something along those lines.
  • If you repack as a .zip (deflate), change the NN.cat/.dat to a number (say, 20.cat/.dat), and put the .jpg's into the Document folder, then it will be easy for people to install your hub with the Plugin Manager.
  • 4Shared does require a login for download, so thank you for the MediaFire mirror.

There's no line saying in it, that it's based on my model. So even a 2.0 would be misleading. ;-)

I'll suggest a more different name than simply adding a 2.0. ;-)

Plus maybe a "Thank you to Saetan for pioneering the idea" and a link to Saetan's thread. ;)

Oh, and I see that Saetan's classic is "version 2.0"! :oops:

Even though the model is original, my suggestion to Zeron-mk7 to make such a thing was based on the fact that I never play the game without the Saetan classic.

To save some time, here is a Link to Saitan's Advanced Complex-Hub from the Scripts and Mods index.

BTW the Media Fire link does not work in IE10 regardless of browser compatibility mode. I had to open it in Chrome, I suggest picking a download site which will work with IE (e.g. GoogleDrive/DropBox).

Does anybody actually use Internet Explorer anymore? ;)

I had trouble with people not being able to figure out how to download from GoogleDrive. Plus, GoogleDrive does not keep statistics about number of downloads, which is kind of important. I really wish that it worked better than it does, because Google is planning to close the downloads section of GoogleCode, which has been a popular X3 hosting site for years.

And X1tp.com, the other great x3 site, seems to be having trouble with uploads right now *sigh*. Hopefully that is just temporary.

Yes, and normally for good reasons but such debates are not for this thread. :roll:

As for figuring out how to download from GoogleDrive, it is just one of the options I suggested. :wink:

SkyDrive is another option of-course.

Download statistics is all well and good but I would rather not be bombarded with Media Fire's advertising rubbish.

Mediafire link works, I tested it myself, about 4shared - I will check download link parametrs as soon I will be at home.
I change mod name to - Advanced Complex Hub MK2, I forgot, that mod name already was use.

To be clear - I edit vanilla Complex Hub station model.

In what browser??? I have IE10 under Windows 7 and no matter what browser mode I set using the developer tools the file does not show in the folder view. Under Chrome the file shows for download fine.

[EDIT]Proof of it not working using IE10 in the form of a screenshot.[/EDIT]

Mediafire download link I tested on IE9 in win7 and Google Chrome in winXP, maybe there is problem with IE10.

This thread is a little old, but I think it is still relevant. To get away from the IE craziness (I'm on Linux anyway, so :roll: ):
How does this hub dock ships of the M6/M8/TM/TP/TS size? Saetan's classic uses (20?) external docks, but an internal dock in the same line as X3AP's Boron EqD would be really nice.
And fwiw, I got the MediaFire link to work fine with Firefox Nightly 27.0a1 (x86_64, built 2013-10-13, es-ES language pack) with Arch Linux. If the download link is still an issue, then most likely the fault lies with Microsoft/IE (shocker :P ).
