    I've been trying to get back into mapping, but I have been having an issue with hammer that I cannot seem to fix. Whenever I click Browse on the texture viewer, Hammer locks up, but doesn't freeze. I did some scrolling through the dropdown, and I noticed that a lot of the dev textures are...

    Is it okay to delete the Half Life 2 game configuration from the TF2 Hammer editor?

    I've started to get quite annoyed by that selection menu popping up whenever I want to make a TF2 map, and I want to know if I can safely remove that game configuration without breaking anything important.

    Strange "ink spills" lighting error

    When I compile a map, there's many strange and unexplainable lighting errors (which the VDC refers to as "ink spills"). Even with all of the final VRAD parameters, these errors remain. I've checked the lightmap scales and they are all default and uniform, even changing them only seems to dilute...

    My map is apparently empty, even though the file size is 4879 kB

    So when I open my map in hammer, the entire map is empty, the file size hasn’t changed, the other maps seem to load just fine. I am really confused and worried right now. The VisGroups tab is also empty for some reason. I also can’t unhide objects. But I can add new entities and brushes

    How can I make a hovering func_movelinear?

    what i mean is how would you make a func_movelinear that starts at the bottom, goes (for example 300 hammer units) higher in a straight line, stays for a second or two, then ends up at the coordinates where it started?
