I found this forum by way of the incredible 2008 J2 ABSTRACT MAPPACK http://css.gamebanana.com/maps/58046

I run a small casual TF2 server called "Dumpster Baby" http://steamcommunity.com/groups/DumpsterBabyInc
and have had a hand at creating/modding plugins for sourcemod https://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?p=2409598

I absolutely LOVE the Abstract maps. I'm coming here to request permission (and gather required files) from the map authors to port them over to TF2 and hopefully release them publicly.

//A note to NIPPER, Dr. Boo, AlphaKennyOne, or AMMO (If I'm lucky enough for you guys to see this)//
In order to do this, I would really need the source materials (specifically the original map vmf file and Lights.rad file)

I have already ported over de_absurdity (and a few others) and have it mostly functional on my TF2 server. Everyone loved it, we've not seen abstract maps on TF2 besides perhaps a few from Conne. At this point I'd like to recompile the maps with the TF2 version of hammer to increase client stability (One person was crashing) as well as the ability to release publicly.

Thank you for your time
-Cheddar

While a fun idea, Boo and Kenny haven't posted in years and I think AMMO has like two posts over the last year or so.

And there's always a bit of chuckling around here when someone asks Nipper for his source files.

Best of luck though, just felt you should know the situation.
