I was just curious, how many mappers here are planning on switching and mapping only for HL2 when it comes out?
Myself, I'm going to try it, because it adds tons of new and useful features with AI and scripts, but I don't know if I'm going to completely switch over.
What are you guys planning?

I would think that nearly every HL mapper would try it. I would love to. The immense size allowed for a map is just rediculous when compared to HL1. (Rediculous as in huge)

Yeah, the alloweable map size will be 64x HL1's in overall volume.
That's going to be mind-blowing using it for the first time.

I will definitely map for HL² and I will probably only map for HL², when it comes out!
Cuz when youve seen all the possibilities mappers have with HL², you will not want to get back to normal HL mapping!
I mean HL is the greatest game ever...it lasted over 5 whole years by now, but its engine is old!!!

I'll give HL2 mapping a shot the same way I did for HL1. Maybe make my house and some other little locations....then get distracted and abandon it.

Well I'll still do both, but it is true, with all the cababilities of HL2 mapping it could be hard to come back (I mean how can you argue with premade spheres ;))
