Okay, I know this was mentioned before, but I couldn't find the thread.

Repeatedly, when I log into SOD, there are random amounts of new files always being downloaded.  This morning it was about 130 (usually it's more like 30), but I never see any changes to the game (whether it be area, or quests etc).  Is there new material or is my computer going through an electronic form of amnesia?

So someone have that problem

So someone have that problem as well. It happens to me. Last night it was just 32 files. This morning, the computer needs to update around 130, 167, 79 and so on. The problem is... the update takes my freaking 1~2 hours every time a new patch of files is being update. And yes, I also don't feel much changes. The glitch in the Thunder Run still exist, although not too worse.

......

.....

Or the problem comes from SoD server?

- Random Title -

Well, fortunately for me it only takes a few minutes, but it is sort of annoying.  It makes me think that there's some new feature that I'm missing because my computer can't put the pieces together.

Gigh...what sort of internet connection do you have?  1-2 hours is a loong time for that few files.

Oh, you want to know what

Oh, you want to know what sort of connection I have? Let's just say a Stone Age model. I feel like racing against a Formula 1 by riding a tortoise here. You need a very, very high level of patience here in my country.

Amount of files

Sometimes you load hundreds of file, but when new features are being implemented you have at least 400 files on the first time and 200 on the second and third. I think an hundred or so means that they are fixing some minor glitches or making some in-game trials. I know it can be annoying and Primus, I really understand you, now I'm fine but I experienced a internet key before whose speed made Google seems one of the heaviest page indeed:(

Downloading Files

Hey puccih hh the third. Typically, larger file downloads occur when new content/updates are added to the game. These updates include new Flight Club levels, Thunder Run Racing tracks, quests, etc. As expected, when these updates are implemented, file downloads can take a little while. Other smaller downloads can be due to small patches, bug fixes, or other updates. You may not necessarily see any major changes in the game, but these small updates help the game run smoother with less bugs. Hope this helps!
