Yes, that is true. There are many of these Tutorials in the world wide web. We're just explaining everything from the beginning. Every Video-Tutorial will explain more about the Hammer Editor and Features. ;)

Thank you for the Comment.

I used a video called VT_Basic_Room from google and it was really well done and taught me how to do the basics. Then obviously I found more advanced videos to show me how to do more stuff. I've created a few CS:S maps but what I don't like about Hammer is I found myself having to do lots of work arounds to do stuff that I want instead of being able to create them in Hammer myself. When I started to learn how to use Unreal Engine 3 I found that to be much better.

I havn't used Hammer in years though so it might havn't changed.

Uhm, i don't know why, but for some reason, the block tool has stopped working for me ...

It doesn't create anything, it just sorta drags the screen when i try to press with it. Anyone know how to solve?

Can't you just create a 3dsmax model then import it? But I don't have hammer so I don't know if it does that.
