So the Export Templates file is quite large. And when installing it from inside Godot, it takes quite a while. It is obviously quite a load on the servers, which is completely understandable.

What I was thinking is why not make a torrent of it? It would make it easier to download for some people rather than using the site and could take the load off the server. I don't know if it could be used as the download method inside of the engine itself, but when if there was the option from the website when downloading it, I'm sure some people would choose it.

I don't know too much about how torrents work and how to get it setup, I would just be willing to seed to kingdom come.

This is a known issue, try downloading export templates from the website instead and use the Install From File option in the export templates menu of the editor.

I'm afraid that integrating a torrent library (or something like aria2) is outside of Godot's scope, though.

Making torrents available for export templates on the website has been considered, but it's not high-priority.

Thanks for the insight.
