What do I download to make maps? Link would be hugely appreciated!!
Source SDK. It's under the tools menu in your library.
And Source SDK Base 2007. That's important.
Also, unless you want to strangle yourself in frustration, A Boojum Snark's Ultimate Mapping Resource Pack. I think I would've given up on Hammer by now if it weren't for that.
You don't need that for TF2 map making.
To elaborate on what Psy said, the SDK Base is for running a mod made with that year's engine. If you never play a mod you don't need it.
I could swear I've seen threads on here where people were having some sort of trouble with the SDK, and they were asked if they remembered to install the base.
Maybe that was true... in 2007.
It was, I remember.
Lies! That would imply you were at least 4 years old!
