Enjoy hammer editor

> source 2 fixes that!
You said source, not S2
>>
>>272970663
>windows xp

i bet you also try to download more ram

>hl2.exe has stopped responding.
>>
>>272969896
It has problem with bigger maps
That empire mod probably has the biggest ones
>>
Do source support large levels now?

Half Life 2 is awfully segmented by loading screens.
>>
>>272971217
>hl3.exe has stopped development
>>
Tessellation and DX11 support when?
>>
>>272969896
was good at the time but other engines have more technology and functionality nowadays like unity ue3/4 and idtech 5/6
>>
>>272971721
well commercial engines i should say also cryengine
>>
tiny map constraints
terribly unoptimized in various parts of the engine (make a reasonably big open map in hammer that looks nice. fps dips under 40)
zero official documentation
dev tools are nigh unusable at times (studiomdl especially)
bottlenecked hard by your cpu, gpu goes almost unused
particle system is lackluster and difficult to use.


the netcode isn't that bad at least.

i've worked with source for years and it's far from a perfect engine. unreal 4 or even unreal 3 is a far superior platform for making a game on.
>>
Do you think they'll update all Source games into Source2?
Half-Life 2: Episode 2 - Source2 when?
>>
The Stanley parable lags stutters like shit.

>>272970663
But hammer is great. Never had any problems making or compiling maps in it.

no that would take to much work and money for free for no reason

>>272971557

Tessellation isn't really a big thing when it comes to engines. It can all be done in the 3d modeling program beforehand.
>>
forward rendering

>>272972091

That might be a problem on your end. I have a piece of shit toshiba satellite, i7 4700MQ with a nvidia 740m and 8gb RAM. Textures load within a few seconds of opening a project.

Absolute garbage toolchain.
>>
>>272972430

>hardware doesn't have anything to do with engine limitations
>>
Well obviously UE4 is superior in every way but you can't compare a last generation engine to UE4. You have to wait for Source 2 which will have completely new tools optimized for highly efficient production like UE4 did.
>>
Source became absolutely outdated garbage shortly after HL2.
I would sooner play Pong than anything on Source again in my life.
>>
>>272971941
its good for certain things sure but its outdated now
>>272971982
>>272972097
probably

>>272969896
The Doom engine, now called iD Tech 1, is the best engine ever.

>>272973516
no its not

The stutter.

Same problem in TF2.

Nigger have you fucking tried playing HL2 lately?

It can't into slopes. If you're playing a source game and land on a sloped surface you don't take fall damage.
>>
>>272974287
>>272974397
honestly never had that happen in any source game maybe your hdd is on the way out?
>>
>>272974054

Doom Engine gave us modern 3D. That makes us the best and most generous engine.
>>
>>272974287
>playing cs:go instead of cs:s
>>
>>272974863
just because it was the first doesn't mean its the best
>>
>>272974921

>playing the worst version of cs
I play CS:GO and 1.6
>>
>>272975047
it wasnt even the first but doom certainly popularized fps games in a big way
>>
>>272975053
>no func_vehicle
>no zombie escape/mod
>deagle is complete garbage
>no nightvision
>bhopping is nearly impossible
>all the models are the same
>>
>>272976260
there are zombie mods

deagle takes more skill cause better hitboxes

nightvision is pointless

bhopping ruins the balance

I love the source engine, but binary space partitioning is a valid reason.
>>
>>272969896
all games looks and plays the same
>>
>>272971216
Why wouldn't you download more RAM?
Just pirate it.
>>
>>272972091
What games are out using UE4 anyway?
I know the SDK is available, so that means tech demos and shit, but what about commercial games?
