Dear fellow mappers I'm not new to making maps but have not created any successful maps besides a single DoD gg map called PinkStar. (don't think it exists any more) But I do feal confident with using the Hammer editor and creating maps. The problem I have is getting (?) a good idea of a map. You know, layout and settings and so on.... So to battle my urge of publish a map with my lack f imagination I was thinking of converting old maps to tf2. Any map that could be edited by Hammer will do. Either DoD, CS or TF... maybe other maps to? I will ofcourse not take credit being the creator of the map but rather the converter. I do respect those who create maps. But do I need any written permissions from the devs of say DoD if I want to reuse one of thair maps? I also understand that there might be problems with materials used in DoD but not TF2 but I could replace them relative easy.. (ofcourse I have to replace and fix the game spawns and other logic's) But the first question is, is it acceptable and legally possible to convert old maps to TF2?
