    money is needed... cause its pushing 45 GB of data a month. Note that this does not include the actually downloads. Bandwidth of that is provided by the hosting mirrors (but you have to factor in that you would transfer the files to those mirrors at least once for them to handle the rest of the bandwidth).

    All the places I see out now for maps is mostly ut04, a better twist would be for UT only maps.
    Along with all the single player and old unreal maps.first get every frickin megabyte of maps out there, then have a comment system, and allow UT and unreal maps to be uploaded easy without having a "jpg" in the zip files.UP I would have to redo all my map zips to see any screenshots at UP, wich sux.

    Mapraider is nice, but no fun because of the way the comment section works.
    but first you need to download evry blessed map out there, then setup a server.I don't think bandwidth would be all that heafty if it's only for UT or unreal mappage.
    call it pupea city hehe or un-real.com
    Then when ut2007 comes out, readjust for that, and still no ut03 or ut04 crap.

    And setup a nice link area easily understood for mods,maps,files,wiki etc etc and not all fluffed out with too much linkage.or anything wich has to do with ut04 or 03.
    That in turn would eliminate a lot of new kid maps and keep the site more reasonable.
    And color code the gametyps, like dm white, ctf green and so on, keep all mods and or soundpacks completly separate from the maps.

    And all of which you describe would take entirely too much time. This is the reason why NC4 doesn't exist yet... the time it takes to create such a content system. The bandwidth I mentioned above doesn't include file transfers themselves, thats only bandwidth for the website.

    This idea was discussed often.
    As it stands only few people would participate. This isn't porn you know?

    Any p2p allways feels like my system is being hacked or spied on, but in reality it's not such a bad thing, maprader has that.

    That would be a little hard to do, considering that technically, Pete has NC trademarked. So what you'd have to do is start a completely new site, name and everything. And I don't think you quite realize how much work goes into building, maintaining a site such as NC, much less the costs associated with it.
    Lets put it like this. Another board I belong to had drives every 6 months. This was JUST a message board. Dave's bandwidth bill ran some 1600 plus every 6 months. Not counting licensing fees, time, maintenience etc.
