Hello, I had to completely wipe my hard drive and now I'm here to gather all the maps that the Universal UI lists.

The only problem is that it takes a lot of time, even with the nifty .pdf with all the links to the maps. So my question is:

Why hasn't someone put them into an archive all packaged together, so you can just download it and be done?

Thanks for any responses,
Dovah

Because it is extremely inefficient for people who don't want them all at once, which is the majority.

Fair enough. Just out of curiosity though, you said it's "Extremely Inefficent" for people who dont want them all at once. Are you saying that they will download them eventually? Or that they don't want the certain maps at all? If it is the first one, wouldn't it be more efficient? You get all the maps that are available, and you dont need to go back and download them. If it's the second one, what about that minority? I would rather just install halo ce, then the UI, then have all the maps ready, than to spend the next hour or two individually (or at the same time if you have the bandwidth, which I dont unfortunatly) downloading the maps.

Pretty sure that the more maps you have the longer it takes for halo to load.

That effect isn't present anymore if you have Opensauce, Hac2, Chimera, or Vulpes.

The maps could all have been downloaded one at a time in the time this conversation took place.
