    Same here, starting look at this now as well. Seeing as I'm really enjoying EliteDanger.

    Gotta say my fav part of the 20GB update is the fact that no matter what line I run the update on it will not run at more than 100kb/s...lol I think that's ridiculous. I love the game and I can't wait for the final launch but I can't get myself to play it at the moment, just so little to do.

    Edit: Ok it seems today its running at 300kb/s...still not perfect but a hell of a lot better.

    I can't get over 50kb/s. It has been downloading 24 hours a day since the update was released, and it looks like there is still at least 2 days left. There will probably be new updates by the time it's done.

    I don't understand it either. As far as I can tell, they have servers and p2p downloads. Disabling p2p doesn't make a difference.

    I am only able to connect to them on certain of the ISPs that I use. So it seems obvious that they have some sort of routing issue on their side. That could be why the speeds you are experiencing are so weak. I was able to download all 20GB in one day on an Afrihost account.
    When an anti-piracy method is affecting the game for people who legitimately bought it and causing other people not to buy the game, there is obviously something wrong with it!

    The frustration of downloading a SC update is huge, and judging by posts on their official forum, we're not alone in it. Seen posts from people in Aus, Europe and even some places in US/Canada complaining of exactly the same situation as we had here. My download took just over a day, and once it had done all I had time for was to visit my hangar and wander around for 5 minutes before I got a server disconnect. Was too irritated to bother trying any of the suggested fixes, so have shelved it for a while.

    (In fairness, I hear that the server connection issues have since been resolved, and folk seem generally happy with the AC 1.0 changes.)

    I did come across the video below from LevelCap Gaming which I think is a pretty good "mini-review" of where Star Citizen is at after the Arena Commander 1.0 release. If we accept that Star Citizen proper is still way early in its development and that Arena Commander is fundamentally a test and demo bench for what's to come, I think we can look forward to an incredible end result. The flight and combat mechanics seem to get better with each update, the visual fidelity, sounds, graphic detail, all look better than before.

    And damn, but it does look fantastic!

    Oky, is there another 20gb update for Star Citizen, or did my update just start over? :/

    I am getting better speeds from the Star Citizen launcher now. Don't know if this is just perchance, but the speeds seem to have gone up when I changed the download protocol from HTTP + P2P to just HTTP.
    I also changed the upload speed from Unlimited to 64kb/s.

    The download speeds are still all over the place, but atleast the max download speed I now get is way higher than before (get >300KB/s now where I used to get 100KB/s max)

    New Arena Commander 1.0 trailer video added to Post #1. Presumably CIG were waiting for the kinks in the release to get ironed out, and to collect some in-game shots before releasing it. Try run it in HD if you can.

    Personally, still haven't had a chance to spend time with the update myself - but from the odd video or two I have caught (and the new trailer), Star Citizen is looking very good, imo.
