If the most recent link ( https://www.moddb.com/downloads/mirror/224119/124/ab05d2e43d15baf8ee439daf8a07337f ) doesn't work, manually download the zip file:

Go to https://worldofpadman.net/en/download/ and download the "Unified zip (full release)" link. During regular installation, edit the PKGBUILD file and change

source=('wop-162-full-unified-zip::https://www.moddb.com/downloads/mirror/224119/124/c8b8bcc423fdfe661e190f8fbf433bad'
        'worldofpadman.desktop')

to

source=('wop-162-full-unified-zip::file://<path-to-file>/wop-1.6.2-full-unified.zip'
        'worldofpadman.desktop')

I'm sure that since We (Royal "we" as in people on the internet) are not the content / IP owners, "redistributing" their IP is very likely against a ton of EULA's and IP laws out there.

Whats about uploading the file i.e. at https://filehorst.de https://wetransfer.com/ or some similar?

P.S.

Me just dropping the manually downloaded zip file in the ~/.cache/yay/worldofpadman directory wasn't working becase in the PKGBUILD it's set to change the name of the download:

source=('wop-162-full-unified-zip::https://path.to/file)

If I had renamed the manually downloaded zip file to "wop-162-full-unified-zip" and put it in ~/.cache/yay/worldofpadman, then that would get people over the hump, I think.

This MIGHT expire as well, but I put this in a local PKGBUILD and it worked for me to get over the hump

With an obvious epoch stamp in there (1640183349) I suspect this link won't work for long either.

I got this link by doing a wget --debug on one of the links given by the mirror page to look for the redirect to the file itself. Yes curl with a few vvv would probably work too.

I can't find a static link to the file. Their actual website doesn't load anymore (https://worldofpadman.net).

I've manually downloaded the file: wop-1.6.2-full-unified.zip and stuck it in my ~/.cache/yay/worldofpadman and in ~/.cache/yay/worldofpadman/src but that's not good enough for yay to see it.

I went to manually download to manually put it in the cache. The "new" direct URL is:

https://www.moddb.com/downloads/mirror/224119/122/fcc1dbe3db2913cdf099c9ef7500bc10

This is the "find another mirror" link: https://www.moddb.com/downloads/start/224119/all

SanskritFritz commented on 2021-12-21 12:55 (UTC)

uh oh, that is bad news. I'll see what I can do. Did anyone find a stable donwload link?

Download Link Expired The download URL you are trying has expired. You will need to restart your download. Or search:
