Default Changes to File Uploads on MTS
Hi all,

As part of a larger revamp of the site, I've made the following changes today to the file upload system here on MTS:
  • You may now no longer upload split archives (this means archives broken into multiple chunks that *require* every chunk to be able to rejoin, aka blah.zip.001, blah.zip.002, etc)
  • Maximum archive filesize is now 250mb to compensate
  • A whole bunch of checks are now in place when uploading, including but not limited to:
    • Automatic detection of correct files (ie correct blueprints/trayitems, etc)
    • Much better metadata detection (for later on)
    • Detection of putting a .package inside a zip that's also inside a Sims2Pack
    • and others. For the full list of errors, see: http://guidelines.modthesims.info/rubrics/4149/
  • You can now manually order the sorting of files uploaded
  • Errors with uploading are shown better on the file upload screen

Note that perhaps the biggest issue here could be that because of the archive/package detection, if a package is not identified it will not be able to be uploaded. I've gone through the vast majority of TS4 uploads, and many TS2 and TS3 ones, but there may still be some oddities that I haven't pinned down yet. The reason for this is that the system tries to identify which "type" of Sims CC you are uploading - ie an object, a trait, a career, a Lot, recolour, etc. If it's not detected, then errors happen If you get an Error 103 specifically please reply to this thread or contact me on Discord.

Regards

I'm trying to upload a lot to MTS and it is giving me the 103 error. I've tried two different lots

I don't have discord.

Please help!

Hi there,

Which game is it for?  Is it a Sims2Pack, Sims3Pack or other?  Is it still a problem now?

It was for Sims2. I left it an hour and came back and it was fine. Thank you for returning my call.

I’m grateful to all those that continue to upload/share files for Sims 3. Thank you

I hope that the split archives which have already been uploaded will be grandfathered. There are probably a lot of very popular and well-loved ones which we may not find elsewhere.

Existing archives will not be changed in any way. The only functionality this affects is the ability to "see inside" a split archive, nothing else.

Did this changed already? I tried to update my mod for it but it still says "error 413 - file too large"
