Now that my second skin pack is out, it's time to start beta testing the third pack. I'd like to get this one released ASAP. To achieve this, I'm going back to the old way of doing things where I just post the link to the ZIP instead of making people sign up.

Sign up for what?

I was pissed because when you post links they are always .pk3s and i always click "Open From Folder" (So that it doesn't take up alot of space on the harddrive) then i would x the thing and click it again and click "Save".

90% of the EF map sites put them in ".zip"s i very very very rarely see them as just ".pk3"s.

I don't feel like making a readme, and there's no point zipping it because it won't change size.

And you rarely see just pk3's because EF map sites are not allowed to distribute maps without their readmes.

Nope, no pics. This way people have to download them and look at them in game to see them.

Is anybody beta testing this skin pack? The sooner it's tested the sooner it gets released.

If nobody says anything, I'm going to assume everything is ok and send it to Dobber for putting on effiles.

Which reminds me, *poke*, Dobber are you going to post my updated hazsucks mod soon?

Scooter, on the raven boards a lot of people feel thesame way about not posting shots: no shots, no download.
People don't want to download stuff of which they don't know it is. So I suggest you include shots in the future if you want people to download it. Happy

Hmm... well people figured out what it was by the filename, and I thought if people saw the screenshot they would say, "I've already seen it, so I don't have to download it."

Here's the screenshot inside the ZIP file:
