    Hello everyone!
    I just felt I needed to announce this even though I am not certain that it works perfect. But what does?

    I have published the packs section and you can find it if you carry a set of eyes. If not, click here.

    I don't see the point.

    You still have to upload all the models one by one. Why can't we simply upload a .zip or .rar archive with all the models in it instead?

    What if you only wanted to download one model in a pack? You would have to download the entire file.

    Very cool system; I like it a lot. This way we can pick and choose or take the whole bundle at once.

    Great system; makes themed maps much easier to create.

    I will eventually make a function to hide a resource so you don't spam the list if you submit 100 resources.

    The point of packs is to save the modeller the extreme boredom and the time it takes to upload 16 models and their screenshots in one night.

    Besides, models (especially SFX who usually use less than 8Kb of space) and even skins are extremely low in file size and unless you have a retardly slow internet (the kind that doesn't exist anymore), you shouldn't be annoyed by downloading other models as well. Heck, you might even find a use for the other models.

    All I'm saying is: as long as we can't upload a zip or rar file, this system does only half the job.

    Wait, so you can just pick and choose which models you want within the pack? Awesome! I wish wc3campaigns did that, lol.

    No, only your models that you've already submitted in the models section.

    Exactly. One may select any and all of their own resources, then add then to the pack.
    Aye, WILL. It's intended that since all pack-included resources must also be present in one's own resource account, no pirate will be able to force-feed a pack containing one legitimate model and ten pilfered olof dinos.

    Shouldn't there be a shortcut on the navigation on the left side?

    Great! Now I can finally upload my Koopa model packs and SMB Item Packs in this site.

    Edit: What the hell? It annoys me that I must upload them one by one in the model section in order to add them in the pack section.

    Uploading pack items one-by-one entirely defeats the purpose of the 'pack' idea.

    Bring back the attachment model hax, I say.

    WILL, all the models you put in the pack are put into a rar file automatically, so it fits multiple purposes.

    So....

    If I wanted to upload my High Elven buildings pack...

    I would have to upload each model, and their various skins, seperately, one by one, in the model section in order to make a pack out of them later?

    It would be better if it was similar to the gmail attachment system. You press the "Attach another file" button and another Browse box and button appears. Then you keep doing this until you have all the stuff you want in the pack, then press upload. Sorta like the attaching-things-to-posts thing we already have.

    Or maybe instead of the browse boxes and buttons there'd be "Add a model" which would open up (in a popup, for example) a window with the layout for uploading a model, which would look just like uploading a single model. When you're done with that one and uploaded it (to a temporary space), the window closes and you upload the next one.

    Because at the moment it's no better than posting links in the description to other "related" resources.
