Hey Grox, that's incredible!! Will you use that monstruosity to develop a boss battle? Because that would be awesome! Really.


given it's current "AI", which really is not AI so much as "rotate to face the player and some subtle movement with func_doors", probably not, but if i do use it I'll make sure it can actually fight and not droll stupidly at you. (which is what it does atm)

...When every time you play any game you start thinking about how you could make it work with the source engine. To the point where you cant even play minesweeper without doing so.

Source would be terrible for most games. Which is probably why most games don't use it. When the only tool you have is a hammer, etc. etc. however that saying goes.

I believe it's something along the lines of "You can't drink anything because there are too many leaks".

...when playing other peoples maps, (Cs:source, HL2, etc..) you spend your most time of looking for details and mechanics in level, not gameplay.

when you try to shoot a portal next to your bed to get up, and then you think that you forgot to add in the entity. (true story! the light in the bathroom parallel to my room is orange.)

You know you've been designing levels for too long when you walk around the corner of a hallway and think about how crappy the angles are entering that room and how it's too strong of a camping spot, and then turn around to look at the hallway to see if there's a better angle to build the choke-point, until you realise that you're standing in the corner of a hallway in real life and other people are walking by looking at you weird -_-

You know you've been doing too much hammer when you assure yourself there is nothing to be seen around a corner until you get at least 45° around it. Hint brushes :D

MarKiu, every step you take is "recorded" by hammer, even the selection of a large number of brushes. So, if you would have pressed the undo key [Ctrl-z] the corresponding number of times, that selection you had would have been restored! you never lost it, my friend! Try it and you'll see.
