I've said it once, and I'll say it again.

I love Epic.

The UT series has the best mapping and modding community out there, imo. Too bad none of the mods get played, and the only user made maps that get played are those gay "BedRoomFragFest2006blahblah" and "AS-<InstertVehicleName>Race" maps. So many awesome maps and mods go unplayed, it's almost enough to make a grown geek cry.

I love the AS-race maps, and pleny of others get played as well. Yesterday i spent an hour and half playing, and a race map got voted for only once.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

3 new vehicles, six new characters, a bunch of new maps, the Editor's Choice Edition maps, AND the latest patch, all in one package. Nice!

From the ReadMe:

This bonus pack includes everything you need to update UT2004 to the most current version, including the latest patch, and the content from the first (Editor's Choice Edition) bonus pack for UT2004. You can install this bonus pack on any version of UT2004.

The MegaPack includes the following maps:

Assault:
AS-BP2-Acatana
Intense space fighting and on-foot combat combine in this recreation of the historic Skaarj invasion of the Acatana asteroid belt.

AS-BP2-Jumpship
Be part of the elite team that infiltrated and hijacked the first warp capable Jumpship.

AS-BP2-Outback
City slickers just took over the outback’s top brewery – get over there pronto and stop the production of their tasteless Zero Beer before it takes over Oz!

AS-BP2-SubRosa
Fight your way into a Liandri research facility and steal the original plans for the Redeemer.

AS-BP2-Thrust
A recreation of the infamous destruction of the Saturn IX rocket where a team of rebel fighters launched it unguided and half fueled into hostile waters.


CTF:
CTF-BP2-Concentrate
Tall spires tower over this Capture the Flag battle set on a derelict outpost deep in the Elorean Seas.

CTF-BP2-Pistola
This twin complex of concrete and metal combines the beauty of nature with the harsh lines of industrial architecture to create a fierce battle arena.


Deathmatch:
DM-BP2-Calandras
The courtyards of Calandras were once beautiful and welcoming. While the Temple’s interiors have been preserved, a new less-inviting use has been found for the exteriors.

DM-BP2-GoopGod
For centuries the Nali monks managed to keep this sacred burial ground hidden until Liandri satellites discovered the location during a routine satellite sweep. The area was mined, and what remained was converted into a tournament arena, corpses and all.


The content from the first bonuspack, also included, is:

Onslaught:
ONS-Adara
ONS-IslandHop
ONS-Tricky
ONS-Urban

Three new vehicles:

SPMA (Self Propelled Mobile Artillery)
The SPMA is a two person vehicle, with the driver controlling a long range artillery piece. Alt-fire deploys the spotter camera. Enemies will want to shoot down the spotter camera as soon as they see it, to keep the SPMA from raining destruction from afar. An AVRiL at the spotter camera will automatically re-direct toward the SPMA if it ever becomes visible to the AVRiL.

Paladin
The Paladin is a defense focused vehicle, with a powerful energy projectile cannon and a defensive shield alt-fire. Firing the cannon while the shield is deployed will heavily damage nearby players.

Cicada
The two-man Cicada ground attack bomber is a powerful weapon against ground targets, but is easy prey for Raptors. The pilot can fire missiles, or use the alt-fire to specify a target. While holding alt-fire, multiple missiles are loaded up, and released when alt-fire is released. These missiles will all track toward the specified target location, so the alt-fire can be used to avoid enemy fire while loading up missiles. The second seat in the Cicada is an energy beam turret located on the belly of the Cicada. Its alt-fire is chaff that can be used to confuse incoming AVRiLs.


Six new characters:

Mekkor (Skaarj)
Mekkor is from the Black Fist Clan, sworn enemies of the Iron Skull Clan. Severely injured in battle, he is testing his new cybernetic armor in the Tournament.

Skrilax (Skaarj)
Skrilax is from the Black Fist Clan, sworn enemies of the Iron Skull Clan. Alongside his brother Mekkor, he was severely injured while fighting the Iron Skull Clan.

Barktooth (Iron Guard)
Barktooth would rather rip an opponent to shreds with his bare hands than fight from afar. He also finds close range Flak shots very satisfying.

Karag (Iron Guard)
Before joining the Iron Guard, Karag honed his weapon handling skills during a long stint as a Marshall for the Terran Colonial Authority. His style and panache already have the the Tournament audience abuzz.

Kragoth (Necris)
After an absence of several years, the Necris are preparing a return to the Tournament. Known as the 'Star Slayer,' Kragoth is a dread Necris Phayder assassin. He is rumored to have single handedly killed the entire crew of an ICV Star Cruiser.

Thannis (Necris)
After an absence of several years, the Necris are preparing a return to the Tournament. Thannis is participating to scout the competition.

Whoever thought of making them should be castrated with a butter knife. I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.

The vehicles and characters are the same from the collector's edition (and Editor Choice bouns pack)

Epic is still the n°1 when it comes to community support. Name another game developer which gives away their current engine for free for non commercial purposes ( http://udn.epicgames.com/Two/UnrealEngine2Runtime22262002 )

I already have all of the ECE stuff and nothing else is really jumping out at me saying that I must download, but this is still damn cool. I'm so glad I bought UT 2004 instead of pirating it like everyone else I know.(soapbox)

Playing a FPS with the joypad... can you imagine anything more horrible ? (xmastong)

So, since this has the latest patch and the ECE stuff in it already...can you just upgrade to this from the originally purchased retail version?

Or do I have to go through all the trouble of pre-patching?

Any real gamer bought this imo. Who would want it for single player only?
Onslaught is one of my favorite multiplayer game types of all time.

Unfortunately they found a way around the single player only thing. At least for our LAN parties.

And no I can't imagine playing this with a controller. The first time I played UT I tried to play with just the keyboard because the only other FPS I had ever played was Doom which didn't have proper mouselook. Suffice it to say that didn't last long.
