Theres a program called bspsrc (google it) that will decompile maps. However some mappers add a special entity to their maps to protect it from been decompiled. I wont tell you how to remove that entity as it will be disrespectable to the mapper. Get their permission or ask them for the original vmf file.
However when you do decompile a map it wont be like the original vmf. Brushes might be different, displacements broken, area Portals broken, wrong texture, invalid brushes etc..
Its also not recommended to re-use a decompiled vmf due to the errors that can occur above.

*Always ask a mappers permision to modify their maps, they have the right to tell you to remove their map from your server.

I have absolutely no Idea how to contact and of the rp_downtown mappers at the moment, If anybody could help me get in touch with one, or one is here that is willing to give permission, That'd be swell.
