Just archived my 2018 GPL downloads.  Looking at the stats (below),  after 20 years, no sign of GPL fading away.  Whilst the quality of downloads just gets better and better.  Thanks to all those creators for keeping GPL alive and kicking  :clap2:

I have an immense archive as well. I began it many years ago but I organized it by author rather than year. I haven't kept up with it for up with it for quite a while. In more recent times I have organized it by type of file content. The reason I began to archive was that I was afraid that as sites disappeared, all of this work would be lost. I've been a GPLer since the day it was released and will remain so as long as I live and breathe. I am encouraged by the effort that has been put into ensuing the continued availability of tracks, carsets, mods, utilities, etc. but my fear still lingers. I would be pleased to provide any help I can to ensure that all of this work remains available to the GPL community.

What kind of downloads does your archive included? How did you get to 268 files this year? :o

I've made a complete back-up of the track database+updates in 2017. And I have a seperate map with the mods and all sorts of patches, cockpits, sound updates etc. Defenitely not everything, but the more that can be stored as a backup the better.

I just try to grab everything from SRMZ etc.  The "View New Content" button is most useful :D . Ok some of the files will be further iterations of releases and some might be older downloads I have only just noticed.

Many years ago I tried to maintain some semblance of order.  It's far from perfect but here is my categorised list, in case anybody is at all interested.  It's missing some stuff I do have  (BAPOMs, set ups, many earlier car sets, editing tools), must try to add all of them to the archive at some point.  Apologies to any creators listed as "unknown", I just didn't always keep track especially in the early days.

That's awesome. There were as many files released in the year I started playing GPL as there was in 2018. WOW!

Significantly more bytes though!
