What is the best way to pack a map so it's easy to install for other people?

*Named map folder in Maps folder (map.png, preview.png, map.cfg)
*Themes.cfg in Themes folder
*XXXXX.ogg in Music folder
*All the Named theme stuff in Themes folder

Write a long README with placement of every item?

I'm used to doing vpk for VALVe games.

Well, if your map has to include its own theme, you would create a directory called Data, with Themes, Music and Maps as subdirectories. These will then be merged with the existing directories when the user copies them over.

Ok, that's what I thought, I wasn't sure if it would merge or override existing data.

Thanks
