The maps Mountainlab and Mann Manor are exactly identical in layout, only differing in theme and decoration. This is justified since both maps were winners of the Art Pass Contest of 2010, a map-making contest in which participants were given a pre-made map and instructed to texture and detail it.

Connection to Other Media

Team Fortress was originally a mod for Quake which became highly popular. When its popularity became obvious, Valve hired some of the original coders for the mod publish their ideas as its own game licensed under Valve. This split led to friction between the two companies and communities, though both still thrive. The original Quake Team Fortress is still an active and open community today, encouraging modifications, submissions, and server hosting.
