Hey guys,
i was asked from some of you to fix, polish up and republish the dockside map from SHiiFTY.
The map is a beautiful and perfect remade version, only needed a few fixes.
Now i am trying to contact the Creator SHiiFTY but he was not online since 66 days.
I am unsure what i should do now. I asked some of you for their opinion.
Some say i should wait other say i should publish, giving SHiiFTY all credits and set him as cocreator.
I am fully frustrated and dont know what to do.

What would you say?
Should i publish?

THX for you answers in advance

    I would say, honestly....find something else to do, Mr. VeryBusyMapping.... :)

    I wouldn't take kindly to someone messing with one of my maps without asking me. It's like someone coming and painting my front porch while I'm inside having supper just because they like their colour better. I mean without explicit consent on some kind of open rights, I say strict intellectual property rights should apply. That is...touching ist verboten; the content is entirely owned by the creator and no amount of 'crediting' covers for .... taking something.

    Does anyone know this guy you're talking about?

    Yup same thing I told you MT. Personally, as I told you before, you're talented and you should start creating your own content. Frustrated or not, unless someone gives you their blessing, you should not touch their work. If the maps dies, so be it. Besides Eliz is working on complete pack, so instead of having 50 versions of each map, it's better to make new ones.

    I want to see something new from new, nothing that resembling aa2/3 meshes, only new.

    ok so that was why i asked you.
    Thank you for your honest responses. I will keep on contacting SHiiFTY.
    If he does not answer so it is ...the map will be dead then.
    Its not so that i am only working on old maps ... i am learning on them to grow.
    I think you three can understand me best.
    I am working on some new mapprojects. So keep hanging on...
    The idea of crediting to the map author was not from me it was from Deltathunder (hope its ok).

    I will follow your suggestions :-)
    You are like a family for me.

    who did reported me to steam. you are funny, very funny. i did the remake of the remake of the remake from original aa2 dockside map. shifty did it, then he stopped to do it again as the editor did change, then i did it, then shifty did say to me why did you do that. i did say because players do love this map and you did it not. he was in line with me, only i should list him as creator (which he isn't really, its aa2 devs).
    but ok for me.

    so stop trying to tell others "you will be reported to steam". rubbish. sorry, but hard rubbish.

    I gave him my version of Dockside. Hope you will enjoy this.

    needs fixing mods nice idea to use c4 as door breach ,but it stops the timer ,also if your near the door when it blows you morph into the wall and end up stuck
