what happens if you take a subset of your 80 queued mods - let's say 5 - and allow them to download. do you see the same issues?
To properly recreate that i'd have to simulate my internet failing.
I may have not recreated it perfectly but I chose 5 random mods and queued them. I then turned off wifi on my computer and waited a few seconds. In about 30 seconds all the downloads had the same download failed error message except one that finished downloading before I turned off the internet. All of them were deleted from the mod queue.
It's not about numbers.
I never suggested it was about numbers. I was trying to understand the issue a little better given that your responses up to now are light on actual detail and heavy on snark.
From the little we know, we can deduce the following;
- It's not a Vortex issue.
- It's not a download speed issue.
So, on to a little more trouble shooting;
Can you tell me if your home network is configured to automatically obtain DNS server addresses from your ISP, or do you take advantage of a free public DNS?
The reason I'm asking - and this goes back to one response from HTR above - if the DNS server you contact is heavily loaded with traffic, the DNS service on your machine can simply stop working. You would then need to flush out your DNS cache - or wait for a while and retry.
If the answer to my question is the former, you'd have to contact your ISP to see if they were having issues around the time your issues occurred. They may/may not disclose this to you however. The alternative is for you to be a little sensible and not queue up 80 mods. Try 79, or 78 and see how you go?
