The ability to have the server send a compressed file
that contains other files which overides image files,
sounds, etc

also contains an ini file of some sort for extra
settings (display an image on the map?)

Server-specific sounds, images (on map), custom game
gui, custom fonts, add extra bars and meters, custom
team colors, etc

It would effect download times dramaticly in some
cases, but that is up to the server admin / designer.

I know some of this is already possible...

Example:

| - Customsounds.bzc
|
| - - boom.wav
| - - boxwall.jpg
| - - raindrop.png
| - - std_ground.png
| - - mountain3.png

    PNG files are already compressed, servers don't pick fonts. sound systme will be redone to use OGG for compression. client side lua can do the rest.
