Some of the maps receive stunning relief Tiles at the moment. This also causes the Maps size to skyrocket, if the relief Tiles are included. Problem is that at the time being, all the repositories are google sites based, and google sites limits file sizes to 20Mb (might be more later, since it was only 12Mb 6 weeks ago, but who knows...).
This results in the current work-around to host the relief tiles apart from the map, thus requiring manual installation.
This already makes it quite a bit more demanding for the users to install. But what makes it real hard for many is that they do not find the location of the zip files. Adds to the confusion probably that they can easily find the maps folder within TripleA.

Concluding, I would repeat my request to add a softlink to the location of the zips into the maps folder - if possible.

Cheers,
