Yo man, sorry took so long to respond, just been a little busy. I been pretty chill, and the map is going okay, just having a few problems getting permission from some of the people to use the custom models, not responding to emails!
Yeah i know that nmrih is not the hidden source but it was late and i made a lot of bad posts so sorry. The mall map is really awesome. just tell me if you want me do to some signs like "we're closed" or something :)
Okay, listen. First of all, i tried to decompile that map. But i couldnt, because it was protectet. So, i saw at the picture. And then i made my own version. The think that im best to in level designing, is to make a level out from a picture. If you see my map, cs_miliz. I made the house from a picture i found on Google. The map dt_trainstation many of those things have i taken from the half-life 2 level. Set hammer to run with HL2, and then open.. there will you see MANY vmf files, some of them are from the hl2 trainstation level.
