Modders Please Use the Compression Settings for the mods and mods itself.


I always use this Method, It always help me because of my Low Internet Connection;).
This Method will make your Mods Small in Size Before Uploading, this suggestion is Best for Downloaders and Uploaders also Modders :).

For 7zip

1) Add Mod folder(best) or contents to archive from context menu or manager
2)Select "Ultra" or "Maximum" in Compression level
2)Select "LZMA" or "LZMA2" in Compression method

3)Check the difference in "Compression Ratio". Less means better.
or

For Winrar

1) Add Mod folder(best) or contents to archive from context menu or manager
2)Select "Best" in Compression method and check the "Create Solid Archive"(you cannot update your archive but gives better compression)or read here

3)Goto "Advance" tab->"Compression"->Select "Text Compression" to Auto

4)Diffrence in file/folder size:
NOTE: Compression ratio depends on CPU, above file size may vary
