ThinkingWithPortals.com Download Database Returns

Postby msleeper on Sun Aug 22, 2010 8:20 am

ThinkingWithPortals.com's download database has returned! After a long process of converting it from an older version, the vast library of Portal custom maps is back and waiting for Portal mappers and modders to upload new content, as well as being ready for upcoming custom maps for Portal 2.

New files automatically generate a new thread in the Release Forum! Instead of having to post a Release thread and link your file there and having a separate set of comments about the download, the new Download Database is fully integrated with the forums. When you upload a new file, it automagically makes a new thread in the Community Release forum, allowing you to centralize feedback. Your thread is linked to on the Download page, and your Download page is linked to on your thread!

Upload Versioning - All versions of files are kept! You only need to keep track of one Download page for each version of your maps. Whenever you upload a new version, the old version is automatically kept in storage. People can download previous versions in case there is compatibility issues, or if you need to roll back to a previous iteration of the map! You also have full control over this versioning, and you can delete any and all previous versions in case you don't want older versions of your works floating around.


Portal mappers - What are you waiting for? Upload your maps there right now!

The current maximum upload size is like 200mb, if the file is larger than that I can either increase the limit or manually host the file for you.
