    Hi i was wondering if you guys could convert from quake team fortress,
    two maps,bam4 and rock2?,they were very popular maps,mirrored forts with three main entrances water sections,bam4 was capture the flag/intelligence,and rock2 you had to get a key to set off gas release,demomen could blow holes in enemy fort and you could get a gas mask or jump in water to evade gas release.let me know?thanks

    cheers mick aka cadash

    Hi, you'll be half happy to know that Rock2 is being made by Buddikaman.

    You could easily convert any map over the problem is maps for any other version of fortress, be it QWTF and above, is that the maps we're designed with their game play mechanics in mind. Meaning the maps we're made with the knowledge that bunny hopping/rocket/conc jumping would be used to great lengths. There are very few maps that would make a successful conversion, the rest would have to be supremely altered and for new players it'll seem just fine but for old players it won't be close to the same.

    I thought about doing Bam, but that would need several changes to help out offense I feel. The map is also very close to 2fort, which means it's hard to justify porting it (to me at least).
