NEW, Custom, Easy Hammer Editor Alternative [repost]

YES, YOU AREN'T BLIND AND READ THE TITLE RIGHT.

Unless you are, in which case you probably can't read any of this.



NOTE: I'm just trying to bring this to the attention of more people, because this is an exciting moment for me as a programmer. ^.^


Hello, everyone! With the release of the DotA 2 Hammer Editor, I have decided to take matters into my own hands and create something BIG. To put it shortly, I modified the DotA 2 Hammer Editor in such a devious way that I could trun the final product maps into... DRUMROLL, PLEASE! *drumroll*

BSP FILES!

I'm not ready to reveal how this works, in order to keep this as original as possible. The last time I released how I did something in a special way, someone stole it.

But, this has the DotA 2 Hammer Editor's easy interface, combined with native HL2 textures (and the ability to add VPKs and other game's textures to make more) and exporting into BSP files for CS:S, HL2, and many more Source games. This makes mapping SO MUCH EASIER because of the new interface that easily brought beginners to a measly challenge for the best map. I wanted to create something so easy that new beginner mappers could easily get into the competition.

I do not have a download link available, mainly because unless all of you wanna put up with an amazing amount of bugs, I wanted to keep this as debugged as possible to keep this easy. I will continue updating the thread as news continues on my project.

Programming costs money; for the bills, for the coffee, and for the excessive amount of ramen. I'll have a donation link to PayPal up shortly so that you can help fund the project.

Hope you like my project, and best regards,
-Matt

Well. Screenshots are odd; I'm trying to figure something out; my editor barely closes, and when running another window, it makes the editor freeze a bunch.

Why even post this without anything to show for it?

This sounds cool but without any showcase of your work it's hard to have faith in it...
