New compression format

Hello visitor,

Spintires.nl is not short on storage space but even we have to keep an eye on the amount of disk space left. Which is why we switched to using a better compression format. We used to rely on regular .zip and have now moved to using .7z which gives us better compression ratios.

To unpack a .7z file use either Winrar or 7zip. We prefer 7zip but either one does the trick.

WinRar can be downloaded here. And 7zip can be downloaded here.

Drive Safe!
