Home > Configuring Hammer for Empires

Note Note: Before you do anything, make sure you have installed Hammer Editor, available through Steam under the Tools section.

Start by opening Hammer Editor through the Empires SDK link in your Tools section in the Steam client. Follow the directions below.

Game Configuration Tab

Add following .fgd files into your fgd list:

  • Base.fgd
  • Halflife2.fgd
  • Empires.fgd (located at $SteamDir\SteamApps\SourceMods\Empires\mapsrc\fgd\empires.fgd)

The Game executable Directory should be set to:

$SteamUserDir\half-life 2\hl2

The game directory should be set to:

$SteamDir\SteamApps\SourceMods\Empires

The hammer vmf directory should be set to:

$SteamDir\SteamApps\$SteamUserDir\sourcesdk_content\Empires\mapsrc

All relative to where you installed empires, meaning that if you configured your folders to be called somthing else then you need to specify the paths according to that

Build Programs
