What To Buy

Purchasing a game is no longer necessary

The only requirement is Source SDK Base 2006, which is 100% free and has no requirements other than a Steam account. It is found in the Tools section of the Library tab.

Mind that the free HL2DM which owners of ATI cards get doesn't contain the Source SDK, however if you buy it via Steam, it's included.

While these games come with the Source SDK, you only need to install Source SDK Base. Difference:

Source SDK is for creating maps, models, mods etc,
Source SDK Base is needed to play mods.

Exactly.
I basically took that list and broke it down it to the best options, since not every game is sold as a single.

Also, FF will NOT run with just the SDK installed, the Base MUST be installed to run.

I bought the HL2+CS pack when it came out and it's one of my best buys ever because you get so much for your cash. The lite packages seems way too lite imo. And the big packages are a waste of money.

Why did you not include the Source Multiplayer Pack (did they stop offering it?) It comes with hl2dm, css, dods and of course sdk base for only 30 bucks american. Best deal in my opinion.

edit: I just checked and they still offer it. 3 popular online games and the ability to play every mod for free, it's a great offer in my opinion.

Please note that I'm a Nirvana user and yet I got HL2M for free, steam-legit.

I'm putting this as a sticky, since it's some good information that people new to the mod may be in need of.
