    Question regarding posting level remakes from other games

    Hello, I was curious if someone were to rip a level from a game and import it to UE4, if they could post a pak of that level to this forum for others to play.. Would this be legal under the EULA as long as they clearly mark that the level was originally ripped from ___ game?

    You can rip and steal anything you want, Epic is not responsible for anything you make in UT.

      I guess my question is if no one's making money then there is no illegal activity occurring? I figure this is what makes modding communities so great.

        Well, if you want to be classy about it, I would recommend attempting to contact the original level designer yourself.

        I'm currently trying to contact Mattias Konradsson regarding Aerowalk, a level they designed 16 years ago.

        What helps is some concepts and partials, like creating one of the rooms of the original level, but with a new take or tone. Quake maps were typically neo-Gothic, so moving that into a dystopian-future with Liandri is challenging, and perhaps will be so utterly distasteful to the original mapper, they may hate it.

        So yeah, make one room, make it look ****, email them (if you can locate them) or Skype them to talk more on your idea.

        A map worth building...

        DM-PSi ; DM-Genku ; DM-Untold Storage ; DM-Station (WIP) ; DM-HeatRay Physx (WIP)

          I think if it's a custom made content for ____ game so you can re-make it, but if it's an official map you can't.... You better wait for Epic staff member's answer
