Why should I upload to M4T?
We have provided an uninterrupted service since 2006, a proven track record of stability made possible by the 'no drama' admin team that has been in place since the beginning.
Although we offer a file mirror
option we recommend you upload directly to us as well, too often entire file collections have been lost forever just because a website owner loses interest or has a poor backup policy.
What can I upload to M4T?
We accept all files for IL-2 Sturmovik 1.0 to the current version, modded and un-modded.
We have an organized structure to help members upload/download files suitable for their game version. A full guide to using our upload system is here
Why not use Mediafire or similar file locker service?
While file management services are convenient there is a huge downside concerning reliability.
For example megaupload have been shutdown pending a piracy case resulting in many dead download links around the forums.
Filesonic and Oron have stopped sharing of files, others are likely to follow.
Free to use sites have limited lifetime on inactive files, the only effective way to use these sites is to subscribe and pay to upload your files. We provide a better, faster, easier, advert free service free of charge.
What control do I have over my files?
100% control, once uploaded and approved you can edit your download to alter text, screenshot or update the file at any time you require.
How can I protect my files from being altered without my permission?
To make this easier you could use Creative Commons, here are two examples you could use:
Allow modification and redistribution of your work non commercially and credit author.
View complete licence
For more restrictions against any changes being made to your file:
This licence lets others copy, share, remix, tweak and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and where they make modifications to your work to create a new work, they licence the new creations under identical licence terms.

|Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs (CC BY-NC-ND)|
This licence is the most restrictive, only allowing others to copy, download, your works and share them with others as long as they credit you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially.
If any part of your work has been derived from that of another person they should be properly credited and their terms and conditions of use respected. The majority of the IL-2 community are willing to share their work provided they are properly credited.
Credits should be filled in on the download page and their T&C's included in a readme file.
Resolution Of Disputes
Should a dispute arise over any material offered on this website that cannot be easily resolved all parties concerned will be invited to present their case in a private forum. The matter will then be decided upon by a panel chosen by the members in dispute or selected by M4T admin on their behalf. The decision of this panel will be final.
While the matter is in the hands of the resolutions group it is expected of members that no one shall post in M4T any article concerning the matter at hand.
