You can upload only ZIP, RAR or 7ZIP archives, which are not allowed to exceed the maximum file size of 2 GB. However, you can attach up to 6 files per item, but max. 4 GB in total.

  • Why is my file pending or declined?

    Pending Approval
    This status is for newly uploaded files. New users uploading files for the first time on our website must have their files manually verified by our team before they are listed. Usually this takes less than 1 hour, but can take up to 6 hours outside of business hours. We ask for your patience.

    Your file will be rejected if it violates our rules or terms of use. You will also always be given a reason, which you will see when you click on "Modify file". You can re-apply your file for review by clicking "Re-Apply". The most common reasons for rejection are: Virus found, not good enough screenshots, no English language description, stolen content from other authors or insufficient quality.

  • How often do you update the Scenery Map?

    Our Scenery Map needs to be updated by hand, by our team. Once you released your scenery on our website, it can take up to one week for it to be added to the Scenery Map. Don't worry - you don't need to do anything beyond upload your file, we'll take care of the rest. Make sure to provide GPS coordinates in the respective form field when uploading files, to speed up the progress.

  • Why am I IP Blocked?

    Short version
    Disable your VPN or proxy service and make sure you are using your residential network to download files.
