    Is there any way... for hammer to automatically add external resources into a bsp?

    Or some other way to automate it... so I don't have to go through a GUI every damn time that I recompile my map?

    I just want to add 2 custom textures to my map, that's all. They are absolutely vital... for the map.

    I remember reading somewhere that hammer can automatically call an external tool but I can't remember where I read it :)

    You can call bspzip through the expert compile log, and set it up just like you would do through a normal command prompt.

    Yes, that's what I mean. You'll have to set up bspzip properly, but it's mostly just command line options, and it's described on the VDC page.

    There is also the new option to let vbsp do the packing for you.
