I guess you haven't upgrade your game to Version 1.0.732.20?
Then you should follow these steps to install the mods:
1. Make sure you have a folder named unpackedmod in the Mods folder.
2. Make sure your resource.cfg file contains a DirectoryFiles unpackedmod autoupdate line.
3. Then unzip this file and drop the package mod into Mods folder as usual.

Yes, it seems some other users got your issue too, the serve of MTS is a little bit naughty these days.
Try to clean up the system caches of your computer, it maybe works. Or download from another computer/network.
I have asked couple of friends to test the attachment links for me, all of them are okay with downloading and unzipping.
So I assume this issue is only encountered on certain networks or computers. Hope the staff could fix it soon.

I've just tried all 3 download links and was successful with each link.

Since the Oct.1 patch, you don't need the unpackedmods folder and the extra line in the Resource.cfg anymore. The users must have the new patch in order for this to work.

I wonder how people play without updating. Origin will not let me start the game until I update. *shrugs*

Me too, my Origin is always an updating enthusiast, never maintains silence about any patch.

This isn't working for me for whatever reason....as far as I can see I don't have another mod that is conflicting with it and I'm up to date with my patch.

Try the x10 flavor, working hard for 2 or 3 hour will increase the performance from neutral to max for sure.
Not like in TS3, the performance bar in TS4 won't show a speedup mark even when it's increasing speedily.
It just jumps to the next performance level.

I am so embarrassed, the mod works excellent, it was all operator error. It actually helps if you click on the work hard action for it to work! I'm so sorry! Thanks for this wonderful mod!
