    Ok I just gotta know this.

    Why or rather Why The Hell
    are the UTA Map Packs only available as .exes and not as .umods?

    First of all I'm given to believe that .umod is the official way of delivering packs and stuff to UT and as I'm rather partial to following standards I'd like them to be available as umods just for that simple reason.

    Second of all, and this may be hard to believe but
    not everyone uses PCs and .exe are not platform independant.

    Now I don't need them right now as I already have the files but it's the principle of the thing damnit! :shout:

    I'll make sure that the map packs (which are the UTA league map packs) have mac friendly downloads when the new UTA League site is done ;)

    The Individual maps as zips can be downloaded from the maps section (see The League General forum for a collection of the links) - I know you already know this SB :P

    The map pack exe's are nothing but selfextracting rar's, so they should expand OK with StuffitExpander from Aladdin for both Mac & Linux.
