Our Downloads Database & Upload Facilities

Postby Andrew on Fri Sep 04, 2020 3:00 pm

Our Downloads section for NBA 2K21 is open!

The NBA 2K21 section of our Downloads database can be found here. Just a reminder to anyone who's releasing work here on the NLSC, our upload facilities are free and open to everyone to use, as long as you have an active Forum account. We want to do our best to preserve any and all files that are uploaded so that great updates don't get lost over time, so please feel free to make good use of the facilities!

If you run into any issues with the upload form, check out this video tutorial:

NLSC Uploads vs Adding External Links

It's perfectly fine to add files using external links, and we understand that there are reasons why this may be preferable, or indeed necessary given our file size limit. However, for any files within the size limit, please consider uploading or mirroring them on our server. In the past few years, we've had to delete a lot of files from the database due to links that have become broken within a few months of being posted. We'd like to avoid that as much as possible moving forward, so I'd really encourage everyone to consider uploading files here, rather than to places where files end up being deleted automatically. Thank you for your consideration!

Patreon & Ad Links

Our philosophy on mods has always been that they should be freely available, and that it's a hobby, not a vocation. In that spirit, and with legal ramifications in mind, directly charging for mods is strictly against the rules, and will not be tolerated. However, with the Internet providing different avenues for content creators to make money, we've had to amend our policies accordingly.

As of this moment, ad links are allowed under our rules. However, they are problematic. Many of them have a tendency to redirect to adult content or try to install adware/spyware, which is something we want to avoid. Furthermore, in addition to the aforementioned issue of files getting lost because they're being uploaded to hosts that remove files after a set duration or period of inactivity, some contributors are sending people through multiple ad links before reaching the actual file download. Please do not do this, as it's unfair to the community.

We recommend using a tip jar (such as PayPal donation button) or Patreon rather than ad links, if not foregoing the idea of making money off mods entirely. Please note that Patreon-exclusive releases can't be shared here, as that is essentially charging for mods while trying to dance around explicitly doing so. Early access releases may be posted here, but the work must be made freely available to the community within a week. Previews of work that aren't going to be released here are also strongly discouraged, and something we may have to take a stronger stance on if it becomes a bigger issue. Please note that we reserve the right to amend these rules as necessary.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know.
