Default Re: has anyone tried . . .

You are allowed to freely use any Croteam content in any Croteam game. Hell, I think Croteam even allows you to use their assets in other games as long as you adhere to certain rules.

There's a catch, though. There's no guarantee newer engine version levels are compatible with older versions. Also, I don't know about Talos, but generally Croteam removes edit data from the level files at release to decrease file size and increase rendering speed. So without the unfinalized levels you can't do much, but Croteam has released a few unfinalized maps before, mostly Sam deathmatch maps. We'll have to wait for Solais to see what he has to say about the subject.

I believe Noam made some kind of Talos survival map with assets from the game. Not a straight up conversion but pretty similar.

Talos and SS3 got the edit data, so they can be converted. But yes, the models and textures HAVE to be exported from Talos as source files then reimported to SS3. It's a cumbersome method, but the only one for now.

Unless when I use this nice blue color I totally didn't steal from Blizzard.

You mean this?


Kinda neat it is, I recently learned about a mod for Fallout New Vegas that lets you play Fallout 3 as well in the same game! And it works in later versions of windows.

Now, only if someone merged Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel! I'd be set!
