OR alternatively you could just give us the wad files.. It would never finish to 100% but it wouldn't matter. Everyone would have the real files and I could just tell utorrent not to download the alternate.. earth.torrent file and I would be sitting at 100% and seeding. Sort of a suck system but what are you gonna do.

Is the data downloaded with this torrent usable now?

Ok, here's what you can do. I've uploaded a fixed torrent: earth.torrent

Now to avoid downloading it all again, you can do the following (using uTorrent but I guess it's just as possible with other clients):
- add the torrent using ctrl+d (that will ask you to choose the save dir), choosing the location where you have the earth folder downloaded previously, but uncheck the start torrent checkbox
- while the torrent is in stopped state, right click on it and select Force recheck
- once it's done checking you should have your 99.9% back, but this time it should be able to download the remaining data since the erroneous file was removed from the new torrent

I'm pretty sure because the software should work in the same way.

Sorry if I missed part of the conversation but what is the new data exactly? Does it replace the default with a higher resolution version or?

Cheers!

You mean the new torrent file ? The older one was bugged and you couldn't download some data files, so they fixed it with a new torrent, and you don't have to re-download all over again if you already did, the client automatically checks the files.

No I mean the whole standalone elevation, is it to replace the one that comes with Outerra or what is it exactly?

It's about 13GB of elevation data (the ones that come with Outerra, just all of them) ... that you would download in parts if you went everywhere on earth in Outerra (would take days or weeks ... ;-))) ) ...
It's to avoid download ... (and in case some chunk of data changes on the server, only that one will be re-downloaded on your machine ... ) ...
So ... it's a win-win (you don't get those download windows, and server will be less busy ... ) ... if you have free space on your HDD ... ;-)))

What he's trying to say is...  ::) The game automatically downloads the earth data as you explore it in the game, but if you want to, this torrent is an option to download all of it without having to be in-game traveling around the entire planet.  Both the data in this torrent and the data that the game downloads are the same.
