would it be posible to make a torrent with all the assets?

Discussions about user contributed assets. This is a good place to request new assets, as well as requesting support on existing assets that have been downloaded from the user contributions repository.

would it be possible to make a torrent with all the assets? this would be an ideal solution to the server-side problems of not being able to download all the assets.

Sharing via torrent is not a bad idea. But from what I understand about the nature of torrents, they're static. Once you create a torrent, it's only valid for the files that were around at the time of the torrent's creation. If you want to publish added or modified data, you'll have to launch a new torrent. So it would not pick up new stuff in the asset repo.

But I guess it would be possible to create new torrents at specific intervals, such as monthly.

yeah, that would probably be the best option.
