Source 2 Hammer 101 Crash Course tutorial series playlist (regularly updated)

We have launched a series of Youtube tutorials for those who are looking to get into source 2! This first series is a crash course Hammer series. It will cover all range of topics from beginning - advanced tutorials that we hope the community will be able to use to bring their vision into s&box.

So far we have 9 tutorials out there to get you started, and plan to add more regularly!

Let us know any feedback or questions you may have here!

Thank you, have followed

Everything would be fine, but can I get the Hammer engine for Source 2 for free somewhere with the necessary tools, without buying Alyx?

Steam vr but it is very limited and doesnt have many assets

Keep in mind that s&box will not have alyx content either, so steam vr is actually a viable option. It does however, lack some tools the s&box’s and alyx copy have.
