Yes, it's true, you don't need a vpn for direct downloads.
Of course it's totally up to you to subscribe to the Architect's website.

Once you are up-to-date it is quite simple to add new DLC's to your game via G4TW for free.
The new G4TW-system makes it even easier than before.

Hello @lysistrata,

Adding to the previous comment, the following is a perfect illustration to your concern. See the first message, and my follow-up down below in the other topic:

P.S. that is indeed a benefit of direct downloads: you will avoid the 'snooping' of hostile people/organizations, as is typical with public torrent swarms. Personally I still prefer using torrents + a good VPN, whenever possible, because torrents are a lot more stable and reliable than direct downloads. And you can safely pause/interrupt torrent downloads, anytime. Then again, this is just a personal opinion. And some people may not want or be able to put extra money into a good VPN.

thanks. i can't imagine how i would have done the updates wrong - it's just moving folders, but of course i just have new bugs, and the old ones fixed.  Uh oh Uh oh Uh oh i'm lazy and prefer to just do a new all in one every time ;x
