    Are there any good TF2 ports of maps from other Source games? (And are there any active EU servers I can play them on?)

    The closest I can think of are remakes of TFC maps, which shouldn't be too hard to find if you have a quick look around the googles.

    Also I think someone remade Italy (from Counter-Strike) a while back, can't find it tho.

    Someone made a version of the No Mercy finale from L4D, but it sucks, like every other port.

    Ports from other games don't fit TF2, gameplay wise and art stile wise. They just don't. Plenty of minecraft maps though.

    That'd be a lie. Minecraft has a very consistent style.

    ...Which doesn't fit tf2 however.

    By style you mean DEV textures? Those textures were never supposed to be a final version of the art style, but since the game became a cult classic through alpha, let alone beta testing, they kept it as it was... "signature".

    Ports can work, but only ones that are designed for TF2 and not faithful replica's. Badlands is an example of a port from TFC > TF2 that works. 2fort could be argued as one that doesn't.

    There is a TF2 remake of Assault-Convoy from UT2004.

    The only port that I liked in concept was pl_strider
