Are these permanently gone? They were awesome!

I went to try Alsain's and my laptop sends al kinds of unsafe warnings so I don't see that as an option I want to try.

The semi-official Modstation thread is still there but it may not have been updated to 7.11 yet.

Aslains website is a bit tricky to use. Click in the wrong place and yes, you will get a flood of warnings about suspicious software. Here's what to do.

1. Open a web browser

2. Go to Aslains site and navigate to the download page and click on one of the download mirrors

3. When the screen changes Do Not Click On ANYTHING

4. In the upper right corner, there is a countdown box.When it reaches completion, there will be a yellow box that will say  SKIP THIS AD

5. Click once on the Yellow Box. Do not click on anything else

6. Your download will automatically start. Wait for it to complete and close the browser.

7. The modpack itself is clean. I have run it for years with no issues. It's the ad page that is the issue, but that's how he makes his money.

Have fun

When you go to Aslain's site, just click the direct download link for the server you want. Don't click the other links.

For example, when you see download link #1 [direct],  click [direct] and you'll be fine.

Please explain yourself when WG has blessed the mods that you find in Aslain.

And no I don't play with mods but I find these types of reactions to generally be uninformed or ignorant.

I'm not sure you understand what "cheating" means.

when a mod pack tells you the angle of the ship youre aiming at then thats cheating. Im not the only who says that, I watch a lot of streamers who agree and they even stopped playing in KotS for that  reason. i never used a modpack, but I see many modpacks being used by unicum players and those mods give them all this addidtional information. if its not in the frikkin game then dont use it

If something is allowed and completely legal that might help, use it.  I mean its a video game.  To call it cheating when its available for everyone is wrong.  You may not agree with it being available, but it is so.

Also I tried the angle one thinking, wow this will help.  It gives no advantage.  I stopped using it literally the same day.  It might help someone with poor eyesight.  If it was useful I would use it, it really isn't.

Aslain's modpack is perfectly safe.  Download it using one of the [direct] links.  You laptop is complaining about the spam on the non-direct d/l links.  (They're shady, but they give him $ on click-throughs; the direct links bypass them.)

It's allowed by the developers and available to everyone. That's called a tool, not cheating. The streamers can call it a ham sandwich if they want; that doesn't make it so.

This is what I get when trying to download Aslain, I know its a good site.

There are, at last count, SIX download links.  Five of them are not stratoplot.com (which is, in fact, dangerous).

I must be doing something wrong, I see only 3 download links and all 3 do the same thing. I put in www.aslain.com, pick wows modpack, and only 3 links show for me.

You have a myopic view of what a "mod" is and why people use them.

I run lady commanders, commander name romanization to also change their names to ladies, expanded ship tech trees so I can look at ship stats and armor layouts beyond whats currently available, anti fog/glare because I don't need to srain my eyes playing this game (and no it doesn't do much of anything on those fog/weather maps. I get the same haze as you do), and I used to run a mod that put pretty little flags next to the ship icons when you hit the tab button. 

This is a usual sort of thing. The only mod that I hear about people in my clan using thats anything but ship skins and anime fluff on the UI is the stat tracker, which at best tells you when its time to bundle up because your carrier is a tomato.

If it pops up and says its unsafe, click "details" I think it was, then click run anyways. It's safe.

My business is legit, I only launder money for the mob to make money.

I hit the wrong "download" button on his page and spend the next four hours ridding my system of malware. A game modpack isn't worth the risk, no matter if the modpack itself is malware-free.
