    Hiyas ! Okay, as the bonus pack (the official one) came out, I d/l it immediately. So from then on I always thought I had the Bonus Pack installed. Now, experiencing problems with U4E version 6; I took a closer look at the Bonus Pack that they offered on their site, - what can I say ? This baby is 3 times bigger than that official one ! Now, what did I miss ? Is that the Bonus Pack second version and I missed all news about it (I doubt that, rankly) or is that a Bonus Pack by the U4E team and they just named it "Bonus Pack" as well (which would be really daft, imho) OR....?!
    Please, could someone enlighten me ?!

    The size of the bonuspack zipped is about 14 Mb.
    Unzipped about 40 Mb.

    The bonus pack on the u4e site is Epic's official UT bonus pack; same that you have. It is as Swedix said: is 14.149MB zipped and 37.428MB unzipped (as UMOD).

    The compression ratio is really more than 50% from UMOD to ZIP.

    And what ? I thought your point was the doifference between a zip file's size and a umod. Got exactly what you meant. Just dont believe it.
