    I doubt I'll use much on there, but the PAKrat/PackBSP replacement is a definate use, it actualy seems to find all the custom materials but also seemed to want to add a couple of model skins I haven't used :confused:

    Yes please... Entity stuff looks useful, especially for fine tuning stuff like lighting, fog, fade distances etc. Particle editor could do with being a full blown affair with a render of the particles as well. I've used pakrat and packBSP so let's see how this compares...

    @mick: This doesn't make lighting easier. Fog can already be tuned ingame then set how you like in Hammer. Fade distances can be done easier in Hammer because you have the "set to camera" button (plus an -onlyents compile).

    Overall this seems like a nice tool, but most of it is either redundant or lacking. In particular I don't see the usefulness in the particle/vbsp editors if you can't see the stuff.

    Mass VMT editor looks like the most useful thing to me, even if I wouldn't be using it very often (still more than the rest though).

    Oh and not remembering the last used directory = horrible for workflow efficiency. :(

    If someone sees something they like that I should steal (er, re-implement) for PackBsp let me know and I'll add it to the todo list :p

    Wat.

    I'm a little annoyed that the guy who seems to have made that video (based on the startup logo) redistributes a ton of other people's projects (including PackBsp and VIDE) without providing any links to the author's home-pages. :(
