Half-Life/2 Modding Sites
« on: October 08, 2009, 01:13:16 AM »

Hello everyone,

This thread's main purpose is to give fellow modders an easy reference to the many Half-Life/2 editing sites that are out there on the web. Instead of having to hunt round the internet for these sites, the links will be all posted here, links to mapping tutorials, modeling tutorials, coding tutorials and more. I encourage everyone else to participate aswell by posting links to the sites that they know about.

I see some really old sites in your list. Speaking of old sites, someone must backup all HL-related tutorials/important resources on Geocities before it gets closed on Oct 26.
