RoR Repository: http://www.rigsofrods.com/repository/

The Repository is where RoR files are housed. The Repository gives the user base a central location to upload and share their creations with the rest of the community. The official RoR Releases are also available from the repository.

Repository Guidelines

If you upload files within the Repository, you must follow / accept these rules:

  1. If you upload a file, it must be approved by a repository admin. This task should be done in under two days. The file author will get a PM when the filestate changes.
  2. If you are not the file author, you must give credit in the description.
  3. If your download was disabled or deleted (by an admin) look in your PM inbox or the log window below your repository entry!
  4. You may only upload content that is related to Rigs of Rods.
  5. You may may not upload Files for embedding them into other web pages.
  6. You may not upload pure HTML files, as the repository is a file-provider, and not a webserver.
  7. The Repository admins have the rights to alter/disable/delete/archive downloads in any state (temporary/active/...) at any time (before and after activation and so on)
    without explicit permission of the author and without a given reason. Normally a reason is given in the "notes" field.
  8. The repository admins may delete downloads in any state at any time for any reason or without a reason.
  9. Please do not upload simple images (i.e. screenshots) anymore (except skins and other useful images), rather use the forum.
  10. If you unregister your account, every connection between you and your files is lost in the database. (because your user is deleted then)
    This means that you will loose all control over your files, in any aspect. That means also that you may not ask an admin to modify them, because you cannot prove to be the author anymore.
