Whats their process at the moment for bringing old maps from 2K4 to UT3?
Theirs a few old maps that I would LOVE to see in UT3.
I tryed opening the maps in UT3's editor but that just crashes it :(

This is a tough one.. it's not possible to get BSP from UT99 or 2k4 into UED3.. Your going to end up re-making every single brush.
(1) You could strip down the level in 2k4 down to bare BSP and export it as
an .obj , load it into max/maya and save it out as a staticmesh, load it
into UED3 and use that as a guide to remake all the brushes.
(2) have the 2k4 and UT3 editors loaded at the same time.. measure the
brush in 2k4 and put that into the Ut3 editor.. repeat for all brushes..
whichever way you do it..it's gonna take time!!.
The most important thing is the scale.. taking maps from ut99 -> 2k4 you had to make them roughly 25% bigger.
UT3 is near UT99 scale.. a rough guess i made is they need to be about 5% - 10% bigger (depends on personel taste and map). A ut2k4 scale map in UT3 is going to be waaayyy to big and you'd have to scale it down..
hope this helps
