    If we could get everyone's permission, a single ISO file hosted on BU or BitTorrent probably would be a nice way to standardize things if people want.

    I've never done this before, so what's the best and safest way to ship optical discs? A bubble envelope should work fine right?

    yeah that envelope should be fine :D:tup:

    The problem is going to be that a DVD ISO could hit up 4GB or more. Best thing to do is make a generic list of mods etc and then go from there.

    If someone from Finland needs a hand, I might be able to help. Depending if my DVD burner works properly. :)

    About the content: the major packs (official BP, CBP, Titan Pack, HOLP, etc.) and other goodies (MSUC winners, other well rated maps and muts, editor assets)?

    lol. Does anyone need any of this service? It's a great idea of course, and it's only on page 2 I know, but will there be any takers?

    Seems everyone has caught up with the times.

    Don't forget the 2.0 patch. I would probably toss the Steam client installer and a good .zip file extractor like 7-zip as a courtesy. Maybe latest ATi and Nvidia drivers, 64 and 32 bit versions. Vista SP1 and XP SP3 as well with latest DX9 too?

    EDIT: We won't need the first BP since it's a subset of the Titan Pack. Sounds like the 2.0 patch might be included too?

    We will have to wait and see, it currently looks like we have offers of help but no one to take the offer up.

    Yeah, back in the 2k3 days and even into the 2k4 days there were quite a bit of BUFer's (including me) who were on dialup and couldn't download much content. The Adopt-A-BUF program was HUGE back then (I received about a dozen CD's full of data from different folks).

    There aren't as many people on dialup these days, so the numbers of folks needing help will be lower. However, there are still many folks with limited downloading allotment. With the size of files for UT3, there should still be folks who need help. :)
