    Mind you this IS silly I know. Most of you already have a custom and possibly better then this. A user in our Steam chat group was wondering why there is no Icon so i spent 2 minutes and made this one using good ol' google.

    to get this as your source SDK icon...

    Download the .ICO from the attachment to this post

    and save it.....

    C:\Program Files\Steam\steam\games.


    all done, now on the desktop hit F5.

    You can create your own as well.

    Thanks, got annoyed by the SDK being the only tremendously pixelated icon in my rocketdock.

    But it DOES have an icon. And this is all wrong. It's a Hammer icon, not an SDK icon. And it's ridiculously shiny. And it's not a tutorial. /stab DJ

    always so pissy =)

    Its shinny cause "I" like shinny icons.
    most people use it for hammer.

    EDIT:: Tomorrow i'll make a bunch of different ones, why not.

    With this most noble endeavor, I judge it is time that we remember'st the Builder and thank him for the hammer that he hast brought unto us.

    For in the beginning we lived as thieves, replacing player skins and projectile sprites for amusement. Then came the Builder who brought us the Hammer, And with it we forged a new file of life. To reject the Hammer is to denounce the Builder.

    And reject it thou must not. The brush cannot know why the chisel carves it; the prop cannot know why the light approacheth it. When thy displacement is cleft as a triangle, when leaks and errors leap at thee, beat not thy keyboard and curse thy evil fate, but thank the Builder for the trials that shape thee.

    Let us now close, remembering Volume 1 of the precepts and taking it into thine hearts.

    When I was cold, thou taught of env_fire and roof-beam.
    When I was hungry, Thou taught of point entities and item_healthpack.
    When I was beset by foes, Thou taught of func_hurt and door.

    Thy hammer creates the entity, places the roof-beam.
    Thy hammer chooses the class, sizes the health.
    Thy hammer in my hand, unto my foes.
    Amen.

    for that you can make a direct shortcut to the hammer executable, it is located at

    <Steam folder>\steamapps\<Username>\sourcesdk\bin\orangebox\bin\hammer.exe
