    Now I know that this has very little to do with tf2 specifically, but it has a lot to do with hammer. Recently a friend of mine showed me nexuiz, and I noticed the lack of good custom maps, despite the fact that it had one of the best free-form movement systems since N. I noticed that the maps were bsp files, and that got me thinking. They also use info_player_start, and one could create the other corresponding entities, so would it be possibly to make nexuiz maps in hammer? And more importantly, what features would work and which wouldn't? I don't plan to use tf2 content btw, so I'll keep it legal.

    depends more on the BSP format and what lumps are used for what than the entities.

    Yeah because like games like half life or team fortress classic use info_player_start but they cant be made into newer engine maps.
