Yes you can still get the DVD. I send them out once the donation has been accepted by PayPal. Make sure that the address you give PayPal is your current address.

Hello folks!

Just received the LEX DVD...  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
IT'S SIMPLY GREAT! I'm seriously considering another 50 bucks donation! Greath work!

Now I have to install all the plug-ins...
Can I simply click the magic "install all" button, or will I have to check for each plug-in? The NAM had an installer, am I right?

Click the Install All button for everything except the specialised stuff like NAM and the Terrain Mods. These need separate installation as they have options you need to select.

I just sent a donation of the said amount.  My email address that the payment came from was dr(dot)modena(at)gmail(dot)com

Can someone confirm this was received and let me know when I could expect the DVD!

I am so excited to receive it!

Hi,

I made a donation last week hoping to get the Dvd - no sign of it yet  :'(  Are there still copies available?

Cheers

BarbyW

Yes and it will be posted tomorrow. I don't have apost office close by and post once a week. I also wait until I have more than one to post unless I happen to be passing the post office - which isn't very often. $%Grinno$%

is this still available with updated content??? I know the STEX is updated until 2013 and they are putting out another volume at the end of 2016.  Just curious as I have always enjoyed the content here.

We are working on plans to bring back and update the LEX DVD or comparable online version, along with other projects to simplify and make more easily available all the years of content that have been uploaded over the years. At this time, unfortunately it's not available. Re-establishing a worldwide DVD-printing, postal, and payment systems takes a significant amount of time and effort for a volunteer staff and of course the process and content would need to adhere to the high standards we try to keep. Your best option at the moment might be Casper's bulk LEX downloader app (paid version) but we are definitely hoping to re-start our old system, ideally before or during next year's decennial celebrations. Your interest is much appreciated :)

There's no paid version. The LEX Downloader X is free for everyone :P

I'm curious if there will still be a new/updated dvd coming soon. I would like to get the disc and am more than willing to donate but would like to do so for the new one if it is coming soon.
I thought about this, and am still thinking about it because though I've thought about this, I still have more thinking to do as to stop thinking about it would mean not to think.

It's something we've discussed periodically, but unfortunately, it's never gotten beyond preliminary talk.  The plans for a new DVD have been stalled for quite some time.

Seems it's been 7 years, so how about a DVD? I need/want a set. save a lot of time/work dnloading.
The site is like a check out line in the US, with many many many, items to catch your eye and money pouch while waiting for the 8 or 10 before you to check out and pay up.

According to current plans there will not be any DVD release, but the contents which were mostly only available on these discs will be uploaded to LEX.
Most of the dependency packs got updated/reuploaded in simple ZIP formats without the exe installers and most of the contents on LEX will get similar treatment, also some long standing issues will be fixed.
Currently there are 2-3 BSC Superior Packs with sets of buildings and the dependency tracker might allow us to create more "dedicated" sets, but some technical details needs to be figured out.

Just to follow up with what Tyberius06 said, the LEX DVD was originally a gift given to those who donated a set amount to the site's operating fund, modeled after Simtropolis' various STEX Collection discs from over the years.  When I assumed ownership of the site in mid-2019 (about three years after my last post here), I decided to assume all the operating costs myself, stopped accepting donations, and wound down the existing subscriber system.

Legally speaking, the donation angle is the only way in which a site can justify offering a disc of SC4 plugins in exchange for currency, without running afoul of the EA Tools End User License Agreement (EULA), which effectively prohibits the commercial sale of SC4 plugins.  In short, we can't actually offer the disc anymore.

Between bringing the DVD's "exclusives" over to the LEX, making them freely available to everyone (a plan that's been afoot for awhile now), coupled with the refinements Tyberius06 mentioned (and some other planned refinements), I do believe we'll be able to get close to the same experience for everyone.
