I'm having a go at teaching myself how to use Valve's "Hammer" editor for Half-Life 2. The tutorials on the Valve Developer Wiki are reasonably effective -- at least, they're a heck of a lot better than some of the third-party efforts -- and so it wasn't too tough to follow their careful directions and create this first sample map. A rather grim little room floating in the sky, it contains a chimney, a traffic cone, and a .357 Magnum which I suppose is for poor Dr. Freeman to use once he gets tired of playing with the chimney and the traffic cone. (Shudder. That's rather dark. Let's move on.) Anyway, it's not much to look at but it did establish that the Hammer editor is pretty easy to use, so who knows what a little effort could bring? Certainly not me, foreigner to a little effort than I am. And mindful of that I'm not going to say anything more predictive than "hey, watch this."

In other news, a friend of mine (the same guy from the Slow Wave tribute) came into town this afternoon with his family. We all had a very pleasant meal downtown and in the course of it one of the things he and I came up with was this rather alarming concept. Just remember, I want 10% of the gross, not the net.
