Originally posted by Gris Echoes:I don't think this'll make any sense as anyway, it technically won't be the same feel for both last titles because of the new supposedely promising "engine". L4D1 would be a weak or not even a attempt to revive it, might as well put L4D2 free on that occasion.

For Left 4 Dead? No. For one, Left 4 Dead modding requires editing a directory file, it is not as easy as modding Left 4 Dead 2. (This does not apply to maps, however.) For two, the Workshop is not as reliable as established (established being the important word here) third-party sites, and creating a functional 'Shop for Left 4 Dead would take time better spent on other things. Considering very few people actively mod for Left 4 Dead, content theft is almost guaranteed to be rampant as well.
Originally posted by OJ191:I specified maps you dolt. I know all about the issues with using L4D1 mods.And if content theft occurs, then if the original map makers actually care about it they can go dispute it and get their name on it. If they don't, well it's more content for the players regardless of the name on it.
