    modding in linux


    Greetings, I've recently had the itch to try some mapping/modding/editing/etc. for some games, but I feel like my choices in linux are very limited, especially because it seems that the Hammer Editor (which I'm assuming is the only editor available for hl2) for Half-Life 2 doesn't want to run with wine. What other options do I have? I know of the now free q3 engine and I'm familiar with the sauerbraten project, which looks like it has a very interesting and easy mapping method, however I'm not sure how it easy it would be anything more than make interesting maps (scripting? dialogue? etc.). Anybody have any advice, tutorials, etc? They would be much appreciated, thanks for your time

    You can try making a single player campaign, as there are already a lot of multiplayer maps. Or a total conversion(Terminator, for example)
    There is also the Spring Project, which is about making a real time strategy and it seems very impressive. Moreover Linux seriously misses good RTS compared to FPS.
