What's the deal here? Do I even want to know why major sites don't carry them?

I assume it's legal issues, but I REALLY doubt anyone cares.

I don't see why its a legal issue. Its one set of pk3s from a game moved to another set of pk3s to a game developed by the same exactly company and published by the same publishing company.

Nice one Buffy, I was just about to mention the conversion :)
It's not so much legal issues (although there are some), it's technical issues. Read the review and more importantly, the creator's comments below and you'll see what I mean.

No no, I mean why won't say, pcgamemods let you put up JKII map packs? I don't think jk2files lets you put them up either...

I'm sure jk3files used to have the maps (I think that's where I got them from...), but they don't anymore. =|

Raven is on the record saying that they don't mind people using game assets from their other games to mod their games.

Ignore him, he's crazy.


I seem to recall pcgm having JK II map packs. Or rather, a JK II map pack. And I also recall one that was disabled. Yet I have it, so I assume it's there somewhere, buried. I can't confirm that, though, sorry.

There's a lot of illegal stuff buried on that site, though most of the JA stuff has been disabled. Still, if Ravensoft has declared that they’re fine with it, it’s strange that none of the sites would allow it on. Maybe there’s an issue with Lucasarts.
