Hammer Deluxe is an open source half-life 2 modification of the episode 2 engine of which has been modified especially for half-life 2 map makers in order to make much more advanced maps, puzzles and randomized events to make levels much easier to achieve.

There are NO custom models, sounds, maps, materials or anything that the mod does NOT require as this is made for people to make better maps as this is a mod to fix what Valve decided not to include into the hammer feature list of which we could easily make use of but they could not.

We have not touched the Valve Hammer Editor as the source code for that is not released, but we have highly improved the entity coding and .fgd information such as making it so mappers can modify the health, model, skin, ammo... etc of npc's in order to make a boss, import in custom models / textures and more into their map so they don't have to create entirely new mods just to test out or show off their creations.

The Source code for this Modification is available to everyone for learning purpose's only. If for any reason the content of Hammer Deluxe is needed for any Half-Life 2 Modification, please supply credits to Hammer Deluxe as you would have read the ToS.

Heavy 2013 update

2 years ago News 8 comments

Late happy new year moddb!

For the past two weeks I have had leave from my job, and using this time i have been able to work on TDP and get something pushing further towards release. Doing this, i have come up with a plan to create a multiplayer game instead of a single player allowing me to test this with my current beta testers making it more enjoyable to work on.

Click picture to view full version

So ever since the end of 2012, I have managed to port TDP to deathmatch using the episode 1 engine ( this also allows people that do not have episode 2 to play the game ), change the zombie models and give them new skins and code.

Click picture to view full version

Amongst new code I have incorporated 2 new entities so far consisting of a kill counter that no does not need templated npc's in hammer in order to count then and can be used in hammer each zombie kill and then used in triggers such as opening doors or locks for weaponry, the second entity is a zombie maker that will allow the mapper to variate between the different zombie textures for different areas such as the brown environment below.

Above is an example picture of just half an hours worth of mapping using a single projected texture, a couple zombie models and textures. Very basic but imo it's very effective for a multiplayer game scene.

Slaughterhouse alpha gameplay - Mod DB

One more update to post to everyone after a video request is an alpha game video of slaughter houses that still requires a lot of changes towards it but it shows all the the above updates and a general idea of how the map design will look when using green dev textures.

Like us on facebook for latest development!

Enjoy, be safe, and have a happy new year moddb.

also, it won't work. I just realized that. The actual half life 2 will need to have this code, and it doesn't , so you can't save your maps for half life 2, only this mod.It is a good idea. though
