yeah thats like i thought (round robin). Thats also the servers i saw while pinging.Mike5000 wrote: ↑Sun Mar 10, 2019 8:35 pmI'm in the US. Factorio's CDN routed me to a Linode in England.
So I tried again from a Linode in the US. Factorio's CDN routed me to a Linode in Germany.
Further research shows a round-robin between:
So maybe the CDN layer is still to be implemented.
- Frankfurt, Germany
- Leeds, England
- Los Angeles, California
- New York, New York
If they dont redirect the users to their nearest location, they could atleast let us choose where to download from. Like you can select in your profile your download location (like in steam). (or make a round robin per region, US, EU, ASIA)
In the end i dont care where i download from, as long as its working. But its pretty much like a dice roll between 10kbs and full speed, at every download i do from them (full game 1,2gb, updates and mods)
But i also had 50mbits from us at one time, so its not a static problem, anyway every time i had an EU server, i had near full speed. And never below 50mbits.
Im not on a 0815 100 user provider, telekom is the biggest in germany.
