Data Feeds

The daily Illyriad data feeds have been moved off the game server and in to our cloud storage. We now pre-compress these files rather than compress on demand based on headers so these files are now always served compressed.

For example the datafile_worldmap.txt was a 138MB download but is now an 18MB download. Please bear in mind this is the download size, the data will still decompress to a 138MB file.

The storage is replicated 3 times locally and 3 times at a geo-graphically separate location so should always be available; and the game should now be unaffected by demands for the these very large files; be it from plug-ins; player built ranking systems or a search engine being a little over zealous with their indexing.

We have also added an index page so you know what files are available and where they are:  http://data-root.illyriad.co.uk/data.html" rel="nofollow - http://data-root.illyriad.co.uk/data.html

Nice.
Can you confirm when the files are updated again?

Just after midnight server time; so after 00:30 would be a good time to get them.
