I second the 3Dbuzz chit, meng. Now that I finally own Unreal II I'm gonna get all single-player fan mission busy wid it. Ulukai is gonna get mighty sick of me soon.
Ulukai, the UDN zip file is no longer there.
Ok, thanks Scumble, I've removed the UDN Zip link.
Just thought I'd mention turbosquid - they seem to have a good number of free textures, you just have to register. They're also the right size. A lot of the textures you find online have to be fiddled with to get them into 256 by 256 and so on...
the "Reference Image Archive" doesn't seem to be there anymore either.

If any one else has any additions, or amendments, please PM me...no point filling up the thread with stuff which is subsequently duplicated/made obsolete in the first post.
