<b>My maps</b>
If you ever download a lot of maps at once, and don't want to go through the trouble of unzipping the files to their correct folders, then get UT Map Manager. The interface is clean, but the program takes a while to get accustomed to. First, start up UT Map Manager and set the folder your directory is in and your folder where your UT downloads are located Then, UT Map Manager will allow you to install maps with the fewest amount of time and work.

<b>Mods 2</b>
Not only does UT Map Manager install maps, it also installs zipped mods. While mods are easy to install in their UMOD format, UT Map Manager now makes it even easier. Another great part of UT Map Manager is that it allows you to uninstall maps and mods. Sure you can use UT's uninstall menu, but not all of the mods/mutators are listed there, and many maps aren't listed as well.

<b>Optimize</b>
When you first run UT Map Manager, it may find some files that aren't used. Delete these files to make UT less sluggish. So now, instead of having to uninstall UT and delete all the files left from the uninstallation process, just use UT Map Manager to clean up UT. A must download for people who have to uninstall and reinstall UT a lot, and for those other people who have tons of mods, mutators, and/or maps. I'll warn you that UT Map Manager is quite confusing at first, but after a couple uses, it's menus become almost second nature.
