After my first map release for UT2004 (DM-DerelictMoon) which was a huge hit I'm now working on a conversion for UT bringing it to UT3, due to not being able to copy over brushes I'm building from scratch this is what I have so far. Can you guess what is it?

why not use the converter tool that can convert older maps into ut3 ?

Yes... I just played that map the other day in 2K4... the server was so mutated I almost didn't know how to play the game :s anyways... I forgot the name but the map is a winner.

Don't go so basic though... I mean oldschool is cool and all but I would say cut back on the CSG a little and use some meshes to liven things up.

did you actually get that thing to work? all it ever gives me is some funny error message about how the t3d file could not be read and/or processed :(

You have to remember that that number is also wrong due to the 2006 BU crash thing :P

yeah but that files been there since 2004 and from what i gather its only stuff since 2006 thats been lost ?

14 downloads isnt a big hit sadly.

i got nearly 700 downloads for a map i made back then, and i feel dissapointed by that :D lol

Not really sure what could solve that. I only tried the utility once a few weeks ago and it worked fine. I have a friend thats used it too to convert an old map of his also. Maybe try the link given above relating to the guy that made the tool. someone might be able to help you there maybe.
