This pack comes in a couple different flavors -

map enhancements from the Gold release of BDv21
v21 Beta decorations
map enhancements from the early beta releases of BDv21
CRITICAL BUG: certain mods that heavily utilize sprite overlays have a tendency to crash when
attempting to operate vehicles and turrets. Morphing is effectivle broken in
regards to those particular mods, and will either have to be fixed by the devs of
said mods in question or GZDoom.

Load whichever pack you choose LAST in your mod load order, or at least after the gameplay mod, as you will be more likely to experience glitches otherwise.
For Windows/Linux users, it is recommended to use a launcher (ie. ZDL Zdoom.org) for better ease in loading mods. Alternatively, you can create a batch file to achieve the same effect.
gzdoom.exe -file gameplaymod.pk3 -UniversalMapEnhancements_v21Gold_RC#.pk3
Mac users can use the built in launcher provided by their choice in source port (GZDoom, ZZDoom, Zandronum).
I'm aware there are other methods of accomplishing the "universal" nature of this mod. However, the method provided in this upload resulted in greater compatibility across source ports, without the need of restricting to features found in specific ports.
Now, behold the splendor of hell and get to slaying!!
