    As the title says. I think it'd make an interesting MvM map, though the waves would have to be different than your standard to account for the increased size of 5gorge in comparison to the existing MvM maps.

    I am sure someone has already ported every official map to MvM. Check FPSBanana.

    What, genuine curiosity deserves patronization?

    Hadn't thought about Gorge. I might look into that too.

    Checked on Gamebanana: there is no mvm_5gorge or mvm_gorge. Maybe I'll do a thing.

    Please don't! Put your energy into making a Gorge-inspired MVM map that is more tailor made to the game mode instead.

    Well, I was thinking about slicing the second half of the map off (basically after the eponymous gorge) and altering that initial loading yard area, but you're right: it may be better to just make a new map.

    That being said, there are bits of Gorge that would work. The starting spawn yard for example would be a good ending (have the bots come through the large garage door to the left). The First point's bridge/valley would also be an interesting point. That all being said, you could in essence take bits of Gorge and sew them together with newer geometry. (rather than doing something 100% new.)

    Considering my unfamiliarity with Hammer and mapmaking as a whole, I think I'll try piecemealing it before I cut a map out of whole cloth.
