Oh look! Spacew00t is finally releasing something! Did he mention it's all done in Hammer, no Lua involved?
I would like to take this chance to say that I'm not dead.
This release includes the BSP and VMF of a sample map I made awhile back. What's special about this release is that everything was done with nothing but Hammer entities.
Original WIP Thread
So yeah, I first started talking about this at the beginning of 2008, and its now almost halfway through 2010, I think I got distracted somewhere along the way. Basically, I always was planning on releasing a tut on this, but now I realize that I've pretty much forgotten how it works (so good luck figuring it out!). I also realize I'm probably not going to use it in any maps in the foreseeable future.
It's made with Hammer and its got a lot of entities, it ain't gonna be as neat as something you could make with lua, but it will teach you how to use entities in new and creative ways. I'm not really looking for constructive criticism for how to improve it, since I don't plan to do anything with it right now, and I can't really help you with any issues it may have since I've forgotten how it works. Please remember that I did this over two years ago and I've gone on to do other things since then. While you have permission to use this in your map (as long as you credit me) I would really use this instead to learn how to make your own entity based projects in Hammer.
The Final Word
I hope this inspires others to view Hammer in a new way, and to implement other original and interesting systems into their maps.
A car made in hammer without lua that goes boom and you can fix it.
Also, before you ask, Yes! I will be releasing more of my entity based prefabs in the upcoming weeks. Just give me time to find them and such.
