Downloading Prepar3D Just Got Faster
October 21, 2011

We’re happy to announce that Prepar3D will now be delivered through an international content delivery network rather than through dedicated servers located in the United States.  We heard your feedback, and are excited that Prepar3D can now be downloaded much faster and more reliably; especially by our customers outside the United States.  There are over 20 international servers available for you to download Prepar3D from on our content delivery network.

All this is transparent to you the user as well.  Once you purchase Prepar3D, the same step-by-step instructions for downloading Prepar3D will be emailed to the address provided when the software is purchased at the Prepar3D Store.  Once you click the download links on your purchased downloads, the content delivery network will automatically find the best server for you and automatically route you there.  If you have any questions, you can always contact us.

The team is continuously listening to your feedback and enhancing Prepar3D, and enhancing the download experience is just one of the ways we’re making the Prepar3D experience better and better. More about the latest program enhancements are available here.

Thanks again!

Download and Web Server Issues
September 27, 2011

Hi Everyone,

Unfortunately our ISP is having some technical issues that is causing our download server to be unavailable. It also brought down our web server a couple of times over the past two days. It does not appear to be related to the number of downloads, but a wider issue with the ISP. As soon as we get more information from the ISP, we will pass it on. Sorry for the inconvenience, it is very frustrating at our end as well I assure you.

Regards,
John
