Source SDK


I need to go outside
Can anyone tell me what it is exactly? I see videos of people doing all kinds of stuff with it. So can anyone break it down for me?

Source SDK is the Source Development Kit. It gives you the tools to develop modifications for th source game engine.

The SDK comes with tools like the Hammer Editor, for creating maps. Or faceposer, which is commonly user in machinima.

If you google source sdk, valve has a wiki with a lot of info
