little decentfreak's thread reminded me that freespace SCP team has been discussing about turning their container files into compressed 7zip files. http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=73743.0 For them this a lot more crucial as a full fs2o install is 10+ gigs, where as my d2x-xl is only 2 gigs. But none the less, it is an intriguing idea to not only save disk-space but ease installation of our improvements. After all, Id's longtime .pk3 format is just .zip in disguise. Of course it would be limiting ease of getting at the files, but the option might be good.

    Do you mean you would like an option to have D2X-XL use disguised .7z files instead of HOG files? doesn't sounds bad.

    I might do it somewhere in the future, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you.

    Yah don't worry to much about it, just an idea to think about.
