Fileplanet is being archived. This means no new submissions are being taken and whats left will be held in a kind of statis bubble from now on. Archived sites tend to stay the way they where on the day they where archived so you can expect the same news and the same files to remain on the site for as long as it remains open.
Sad news but then again Fileplanet and the related planet sites have all been under performing of late, their software is just not suitable for hosting mods for multiple games. The number of logins for their sites is messy and those running the sites have been asking for changes for years and not getting any.
So we may see Fileplanet return under a different name with brand new software and a brand new system later if this is part of a new upgrade to the entire system. OR we may be seeing the end of the IGN hosting network. Since IGN is a huge organization, I would expect something else to appear to take over from Fileplanet at some point.
Regarding the 900 megs of Fallout 3, Fallout NV and Elder Scrolls Oblivion mods I have uploaded there. I have no desire to test drive another mod hosting site only to have various trolls interfere with my uploads and my accounts as happens on a regular basis within the Elder Scrolls community. So once they are gone, they are gone.
I believe given the state of Skyrim, most of Beth games are about to go down the sewer anyway so I doubt anybody will miss these mods in a few years time. We will all have newer things to enjoy.
If a site out there that hosts mods and does not let trolls interfere with a mod makers account exists or work and I get certain assurances about the safety of my work and my account, I may consider using that site as my primary download spot for my Fallout and Oblivion mods. But I am not actively looking for such a site.
I am currently looking at a change of direction for my Elder Scrolls modding, but thats for a new blog not for this one.
