    because probably the majority of the players don't even know that there are custom maps and how to download them and the others simply don't want to lose time to dl something they may not like

          It is pretty sad that the majority of players are reluctant to download and play custom maps, especially as some people have gone to great lengths to make some really nice maps. I guess the huge file sizes compared to say, UT2004 don't help, so people are lazy and can't be bothered to download them.
          Im sick to death of the meagre selection of stock maps. But if you don't want to play on empty servers, then you don't have much choice a lot of the time.

          Its made worse on game types like VCTF where there is only 6 stock maps to start with.

          Pop!

            You'd think after a year of playing the same 4-5 maps players would be willing to wait a minute or two to try something different?

            I guess the stock maps are the greatest possible?

              the problem is a fair chunk of servers seem to have downloads at slow speeds, nothing like 0.1% a second to really annoy you hmm, most stock maps are annoying to play, i did play necris kargo (well downloaded and had a look at) and was far better then origional.

                I will add this to my with list.

                UT3 should automatically inform players of new map/content availability via a community wide message. Then there should be an option to download and automatically install the new content in the correct directories. The content could be community controlled, but the download and install feature would need to be added via a new feature of some sort.

                  I don't think the download speed is the fault of the server. My clans redirect has somewhere around 180 maps and a handfull of those maps download very slowly, some even timeout. I've been trying to remove the maps that do this and the ones that remain download at a decent speed. My guess is that it's some sort of problem with certain maps. I don't have a clue as to what it could be since I'm not a mapper.

                      Remove all these suspense-map-only servers!
                      Annoying always to play suspense ...
                      There are too many official servers (Epic ones + multiplay) causing people to play only stock maps.I think Epic should add some custom maps to their servers.
                      The second thing is that people are LAZY to dl custom maps from servers. (map size is around 30-40Mb for UT3 and up to 90-100Mb (VCTF-Torlan)) because they are not patient or they have slow internet connection (<ADSL 2MB).
                      Last point is that some players still have 1.1 patch only version causing server disconnect while switching to custom map (bug fixed in patch 1.2 or 1.3)

                        Currently, when a new map is voted, if the player needs to DL the map, many simply leave. When they do stay ans DL, the match is usually over by the time they finish. The map sizes are large, 30-160 Meg in size. So, even if they DL, the default cache is too small to hold very many maps and the stale cache times is also short to hold them for long, so they need to keep DL the same map over and over.

                        Maps keep getting bigger as custom stuff is added to them. UT3 needs some sort of automatic DL of new content. Maybe an option to DL offline when the game is not being played. It must be easy and built in so everyone can use it.

                          Well, even with DM maps being 25-50M and only taking a minute or two (for me 45 seconds), players still will not download them.

                          They're just impatient and would rather play the same maps over and over.

                          It's mostly about instant gratification IMO. I've seen players that leave when a custom map is selected only to go to a stock map server and play.

                          The only other resaons I can think of are that they don't want to play an unfamiliar map, or they don't want a strange file on their computer?

                              Good idea Sanchez, replace all stock map servers with your maps and behold - people could play new maps for another year before needing to get new ones.....you're a great mapper. Love your work.
