Quake for Half-Life

Valve has created a mod for Half-Life that makes it play like the original Quake. The mod is called Deathmatch Classic or DMC for short. You can get the scoop on Shacknews or GameSpy. All the models, sounds, and textures are new (but obviously inspired by the original), but all the physics are the same. The maps included will be versions of DM2, DM3, DM4, DM6, and E1M2. The mod is supposed to be released "real soon". Thanks Blue.

Now my big questions are these: will mappers be allowed to make conversions of old Quake maps and, if so, when will someone port E1M8?

The Master comments: Yeah! I wanna play some Ziggurat Vertigo dang it! I do wonder how well that map would play in another game tho. I doubt it would feel quite the same.
