I was wondering if anyone has an all-in-one skin package I can download and install of the skins being used by the players I commonly see on the server. I see a lot of skins posted on the forums, but I have no idea which ones are being used or not.. and who might be using them.

I thought player skins and models would be auto-downloaded off the game sever like nearly all other content is (maps and mods) when you log-in. Hopefully UT 2007 will have this.

I don't think it's a matter of the server not doing it because UT2k4 doesn't... it's because not everyone wants to see/use the skins. They hinder performance on most machines and there's quite a few people that just prefer not to use the custom skins.

Also, if someone had all the skins that players use in one zip file... you'd be talking about a HUGE file.

Just start getting them from the Skins forum and eventually, you'll have them all. =)

There is a post in the skin forum with dialogue on why we do not force skin downloading:

Thats a really good idea eddy, probably could link the voicepacks too.

P.S. this thread should probably go in the Skins section of the forums.

good, bad, I'm the guy with the gun.

To do what you ask, the size of the Skin pack would be 506 MB (530,866,176 bytes) compressed, and my list is not that current, try downloading that while you wait to play on 56k modem

I wonder if Dru and Shant would have room for us to put the skins that the DC folks use in the forums for download? I mean like <DC>, {DC}, (DC), etc.

Would be kinda kewl, but ya know.. that's space and bandwidth =)


Dru, ya hating me and my suggestions yet?

I think it would be a good idea if someone would post a package with most of the skins used on this server, not that anyone would be required to download it, but those of us with good computers and connections would appreciate it. Maybe ill put together what i have so far myself and attach it here, maybe.

sorry, didn't notice I could not do that myself, hadn't tryed to attach and didn't see the low limit.

Ghorky..
read the previous posts... yer talking about 1/2 GB (500+MB). Read the posts in the Skins forum and download them. There's not really that many and there's several that multiple people use. Not to mention the new people that come into the server use the same.

Im talking about for people like myself, I find that it takes longer to link to, sort, and place, the skins individually then it does to download them, not to mention it takes a while to find them on the forum, it would be nice to have them all in one place an sorted. I have spent several hours trying to get the ones used, and still cant see half of you right, I personally have enough free space on my HDD that another 500mb, or even another 5-10GB isnt going to make a difference, considering I remove old things regularly, and the new things are never too huge, but i do understand if the problem is taking up the 500 MB, of 5GB or whatever on the website/server, although considering how much space is being used to store all the maps and mods used here it wouldnt make too much of a difference

500 MB on the server is what would be the problem (not sure how much it would cost for that much space for just 1 file), and it still wouldnt have all the skins.
