I need as much information on this as possible. I realize the game isn't released yet, but two things that lead me to believe this is a fruitful question is:

1) People out there have experience importing maps from one source game into another.

2) People out there have information about CS:GO regarding the version of the engine it'll be running on.

What I need to know is this:

I'm currently working on a map for CS:S; I want to eventually import it into CS:GO. I need the brutal truth on what to expect in the process and what I can do to make it easier on myself.

I've searched and I've come up blank for the most part.

Maybe some tools will be released to import Source map to Hamer then export in to GO map.

Not sure Vtex will work :/

There is no big difrence. GO will be same as Source just new skins and animation. :p

I'm afraid we're not on the same page.

I'm not interested in importing OFFICIAL CS:S maps into CS:GO. I want to import custom maps, which were obviously already created in Hammer.

I make this clarification because you say "maybe tools will be released to import Source map to Hammer" which, in regards to custom maps, already exists.

I just basically need an answer to this: Is making a map for CS:GO using the current Hammer tools completely pointless? I.e. Will be we able to at least import brushes into CS:GO's tools?

We won't know for sure until the game comes out and we see the GO SDK, but I would imagine that if anything, any brush work could certainly be scavenged, you'll likely have to replace all the entities though, which isn't a big deal.

Alright, that was my intuition.

Brush work is the painful part anyway :)

Yes. You will be able to port maps from CS:S to CS:GO.

Well I don't think the core gameplay is going to change. I mean is it an aim map? a hostage map? or a bomb map? but I think due to the source engine, graphic improvement so on and so on. I think you need to open the vmf file to the new cs:go hammer (when it comes out) and compile it. I don't know since i never imported one of my custom css maps to another game using hammer.

It's a hostage map.

Here's hoping all my work isn't for nothing.

My guess is that loading your current vmf in CS:GO hammer, then fixing things here and there (entities etc), then recompiling is all you have to do.
