where are the official map files?

Postby Kaelan002 on Mon Jan 03, 2011 3:16 pm

hi guys
im trying to edit ctf_turbine and make it a bit harder to stalemate but i cant find the map in my program files, i assume that its hidden. Does anyone know where i can get this map in the original (preferably decompiled) form, i can only find edited versions.

ps. i know that its frowned on to decompile and edit other peoples maps but i am doing it purely for fun, not to claim it as mine or anything.

A few things i have to note:
  • Mappers often dislike their maps to be edited unless its definitely being a worth change in gameplay. For example fastlane was purely for 5 vs 5 (to about 9 vs 9). Prolane made it 16 vs 16 suitable. This is an example mappers often find ok.
  • Turbine is already being changed: http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=16020
And for decompiled maps: http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=5952
Now on the workshop!
