Hosting custom content online

Custom content includes: Models, Textures, Custom Animations, Zips or any files that are not part of the base game.

If you want other players to see your custom content you have to host it online.


You can use any hosting that provides you with a direct download link (a link that leads directly to the file, not a website)

That's a direct link.

That's not.
