thx, i got 7zip and winrar, both in the latest versions.

it was (my?) firefox... the file was always only 10kB, when downloaded with it.
chrome could download it finally.

i´ve got an question:

each map has up to 3 different versions (one for conquest, one for destruction, maybe a third one for the other possible gamemodes.)

the difference between the 2 or 3 versions is the map´s income per zone.

one could choose to play destruction-mode, but using the conquest map...
which will result in a much lower income, than playing the "regular" destruction map.

when using the mapunlocker, there is still the "link" between gamemode and map active.
so, f.e. setting up a destruction match only lets you select the destruction-version of the maps and so on.

could you deactivate this link, to be able to use any version of any map in any gamemode, too?

so one could play f.e. with lowered incomes, reducing spam-fests and lag-problems, too?

yeah i get what you're saying, that feature is available with dedicated servers. you can choose the map overlay and game mode separately from each other, but it's not possible in the normal game because the game modes and overlays are linked together.

it's probably possible to switch them out, to have destruction use the conquest map, but then you would have no way of reverting back to default destruction without uninstalling the mod to the original version. anyways ill look into it later

EDIT: it is possible to freely change sector values on all maps, however this is a client-side mod and would require all players to have the same mod, otherwise the game will desync

Rather amusing how 'clown games' are now on 'eugen servers' list :)

Thanks for embracing the change brought forth from the fans, Eugen.

Update broke it I guess, does the mod need to fix, or just re-install it?
