Guys,

I have made a decision to close files4farmers aka simtractor.net down for good. I have a number of commitments which no longer free up the time required to maintain and enhance the website. Along with the fact that the website is slowly dying of traffic there is no point prolonging it. There are a number of great websites out there still but our time has come. I can look towards new projects and learning new skills.

It has been a great 5 years and i have enjoyed every minute of it. I will be looking at taking the website down over the next few days.

I wish you all the best for the future.

Gaz

ah this is a bit unfortunate i suppose, i downloaded and uploaded my mods and skins to it. i suppose the content will be deleted as it is all copyrighted by the authors. im not really surprised though due to the lack of ST and with i love simtractor-UK doing the mods for the other game. it is probably just as well as some people have been uploading my mods as their own work. i may upload my mods somwhere else if there is enough demand and if ST picks up again.

Well that is very odd, I guess I didn't realize how slow business was getting on files4farmers. I wonder how much money it would take to purchase the rights to the website?

I realized I need to put my Midwestern farm layout mods somewhere else also. Problem is, a lot of those other websites are in German or some other language. I might have to take German next semester haha...

Yes, sorry to hear this, it was the first addons place about SimTractor.

I have talked with Gaz about the website content, we plan to upload the files in a specific folder at SimTractor.com (and probably classified folder by folder). So, you could still download addons/skins there.

LOL....guess I downloaded ALL the tractor mods for no reason! I was thinking I would download them just in case I ever wanted them and couldnt find them on other websites.

Haha well it is nice to have several brands installed in my game, makes the dealership more intresting.

Thank you Gaz and Ben for your cooperation in moving the files to Simtractor.com Smile
