I'm sure a lot of us know of the "missing map" problem. When people try to download maps they get an error and are disconnected. None of the "popular"(all) maps seem to be hosted anywhere on the internet. So how about making a database that has every map so people can just download them and place them in their maps folder? Once they place the files in their maps folder all they have to do is change the download options in the game's settings to "Don't allow any custom files" and they can just connect to the server in seconds.

A universal repository is probably a good idea, at least one that has a large number of popular maps. I'm frankly not sure how much space our mirror website has, but it is worth looking into. I'll check with others on the team to see if maybe we can offer some kind of repository here on the website.

Thanks for the link. That's a good start but there are several more.

For a couple days now the leader of my clan has been nice enough to send me maps that I couldn't get. He has almost every single BG map. Perhaps I can get them from him and upload them somewhere.

bg2.wikia.com

I just created it this morning. If someone wants to start a list of maps and then other people can edit the page to add links to various places. I know gamefront.com is a great upload source for American players and the internet is full of hosting services that can work for everyone.

If people want to add NON map stuff to the wiki I encourage that too.

I'll take the job. I'm currently getting all the maps. Can I type out the map list and just link it to a .rar containing all the maps? Or individually?

map packs are good for linebattles and bgl but most should have individual links. Packs that already exist can become subarticles, like the trr maps and what's already posted for the may 2010 linebattle pack.

Would it be alright with you if we put a link to your repository on the bgmod website somewhere? It might be easier at this point to provide a link than to do another whole repository here... at least for now.
