So are these really the Source 2 tools, as some claim? Does that mean that DotA 2 has been ported to Source 2? Is the world ending?

This is just a tools update to allow access to engine functionality that people besides valve previously lacked. There is some very interesting features in this new hammer, including a new mesh system to replace bsp entirely.

Why did it have to be DOTA???!

I hear the modeling tools are based on Modo, so they should be pretty damn powerful as far as low poly mesh construction goes.

How small can you go with vertices? Basically, can we finally stop making 6-faced-door-arches-from-2004?

Does the new Hammer have any floating point rounding errors?

I don't think it does. Brushes are gone, it's all meshes now, you can make them concave if you want. You can actually move the grid, rotate it, and build on any weird arbitrary angle.

1. Valve released Half Life 2 after a six-year development time to showcase the Source engine.
2. It has been six years since the previous Half-Life 2 episode.
3. Source 2 has been released.
