How do I get source 2 hammer without buying alyx? Is there even a way or should I just go ahead and make the investment?

Dota 2 workshop tools maybe? I’ve seen some posts from people who use it to make source 2 maps, you should do research about it.

Heard about Dota 2 also. Not too sure if there’s alternatives other than Dota and Alyx

Wouldn’t it be different assests?

Even if, you can still create the map without materials or placeholder materials, wait for the S&Box to come out and continue your job here.
Also, it can be always beneficial for you, because you can learn how to use the tool. :open_book:
If you are convinced of the tool, you can always buy HL: A later.

Can someone who is making maps in Dota 2 speak up? I will be grateful :heart:

Differen’t assets, same tools. You could technically use it as a trial/demo to see if you’re interested in getting involved and learning more. The tools are also slightly outdated.

You can download the SteamVR workshop tool, its free and works without the need for a VR headset, that’s how I started learning Source 2 before Alyx.
