Getting really slow download speed in Abu Dhabi.


Im on 50mb internet and its going to take me over 9 hours to download it.

Should be a lot sooner.

No mention on the downloader how big the files are either.

Unfortunately, our CDN that provides the download does not have good coverage in that area. You are probably downloading from servers that are quite a ways away.

We recommend only installing a small amount of scenery at a time to complete the download as quickly as possible.

Same here in Sydney Australia - download speed = 25 KILOBITS / sec [:o

I'm just loading the minimum scenery for Australia = 8Gb ...

That is going to take 85 hours = 3 1/2 days !

What can I do to make this a bit faster (we have a 30Mbps service here).
