I was just wondering, how is this taken here? I could probably do it for my own playing pleasure though.

By editing the Levels, I'm planning to change some of the maps and gameplay based for the original DK Campaign, like Skybird Trill, Batezek, Benetzaron.

I'm not sure how that is looked upon here, but I could also just make completely new levels just based on the same concepts. It'll take a little more time since I'll have to go right down to Map Editing, but I'm already planning to do so anyway.
