    To begin this post, I'd like to point out that I've not actually been on Team Fortress 2 for very long since I deleted it due to slow internet connection. But I've decided to download it once again, due to the fact I felt like getting back into the huge fun of it all, Plus I've actually figured out how to use the Voice Chat mode. But getting back to the point, I'd very much like to get a map done for my soon to be made server. I've seen in the past that various different maps from Team Fortress 2 have been able to be played within Garry's Mod. And for that reason I wish for a map from that game to be recreated or converted for my Team Fortress 2 server. Now let us get into the details of construction wishlist.

    To start off you are going to need some details on what exactly I want to be created for my server. The following video contains the map I'm in need of. And since I'm unable to find the name for this map I've decided to just show you the video. Now remember that the player throughout the video is within the map I want for my server. Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5dH4oNnJuE&feature=related

    So now you know what map I actually want. But just keep in mind that I'd very much like it if the map's game format is Capture The Flag.

    So that is pretty much it, I can only hope that it is possible for one of you fine creators to be able to somehow convert or remake this map playable in Team Fortress 2. I'd be very grateful and will offer the maker of the finished map to join my server once it is complete.

    Just a reminder, the intelligence for the BLU team would look good if it was within a roof covered area. Dark areas if possible. While also the same for the RED teams intelligence.

    Sorry if this is a tiny bit to much for you to handle but I'm just quite focused on getting this server up and running. And also very glad to be back on TF2

    Why would you... Play tf2 on a GMOD map?
    It's not designed for it, and it will not be fun. Plus, few people would like to have their name put on an open playground that would become a sniperfest within seconds.

    Well actually, me and my fellow friends and future team mates are the ones who want that map for the server. So as long as my fellow friends like it I see no reason to worry about that. Not trying to sound rude, but there are quite a few recreations of Team Fortress 2 maps for GMOD so I don't see why this should not be done the other way around.

    Those weren't recreations tho. Gmod can actually play the maps from TF2 directly.

    I just find it a bit sad to see all the hard work people have made on this site (The showcase alone has 40 very polished maps in it), and then people just want to dick around in sandbox maps. Don't take THAT part as an offense; it is merely a general observation that includes more encounters than this.

    That being said, if you really want to play gm_construction in tf2, just decompile it, open it in TF2's hammer, apply new texture and recompile. Might be more entity work than that, but you'll find out.

    TF2 maps are designed for TF2 and with TF2 classes in mind. GMOD maps, aren't. So gameplay will be a lot different.

    That being said, if you and your friends have fun playing TF2 on a gmod map, there should be no issues.

    ninja'd:

    And EDIT: I think you just have to decompile the textures from the map that aren't stock HL2/TF2, place them into the proper folder in TF2 then pack them into the .bsp. You don't have to apply new textures.

    Well, I'm stuck in the artstyle specific mindset

    As I've said, quite new to the "downloading maps" part of Team Fortress 2. Help may be needed.

    Right. Open the gmod folders in steamapps, and find the maps folder. look for gm_construct or whatever. copy it somehwere, then use a decompiler to decompile it into a .vmf. open the .vmf in hammer.
