    *edit* oops sorry, wrong forum [I thought it said "modding & skinning" for some strange reason], please move to the relevant place


    If this has been mentioned before, I apologise in advance

    We've had plenty of help compiling mods & maps together, so why not create a program that helps us to install the maps/mods in the correct places.

    I'm using Star Trek: Bridge Commander's BCMI program as an example of what you could do as an installer:

    Obviously not everyone will have their UT3 folder in the same place, so I suggest let the user set the parameters for where there folder is [like with the difference between XP & Vista users], so then the program will do the rest :)


    So this way, we [or at least I myself ^^;] won't get confused where to put the files!

    This is a really good idea, I'm often fannying about with stuff like this, no idea what directory its supposed to be in. It's alright for veterens, but what about us newbies?? I'd patent the idea now tho!
