    I have noticed we don't actually have links to their pages anywhere other than their news threads. A special box with them somewhere would probably be good. Perhaps on the downloads page above the current category listing, or somewhere on the home page. Or even stick them into the featured maps thing after the maps (leave them there all the time).

    Actually, before the construction pack, I actually had a hard time finding the website to the swamp pack (directly from this site).

    So, yes. I think this is a good idea.

    How about a Stickied thread in the Models/Textures thread?

    I also heard snacks saying something about a jungle pack?

    EDIT: this suggestion isn't trying to say that these packs arn't important, but a thread would be easier to update

    Update? I sure hope people aren't planning to spam theme packs to such an extent that "updating" anything would be a nuisance. But yeah, I feel something more prominent would be better.

    Packs are basically the only large group project done on here. I feel they should DEFINITELY be more prominently featured, especially considering the work everyone puts into them.

    Maybe a box on our front page for all our major releases (if we ever do anything other than theme packs). Maybe underneath or even in the community panel and above the user CP.

    There's no hurt in a bit of self-advertising every once and a while, especially if it's as awesome as two entire new themes.

    Indeed, the way I found them was a link on some random forum.

    Who looks at that, though?
