Portal 2: Community Edition
Portal 2: Community Edition is a mod for Portal 2 developed using licensed code from Valve, that aims to make useful tweaks and additions to the game for mappers and modders. It's designed to be used as a base for custom maps and other Portal 2 mods, though it will also include its own campaign to show off some of the new features.
- Built off the CS:GO engine branch with Portal 2's entities added in, including all the newer features.
- TeamSpen's Hammer Addons integrated by default
- Re-enabled engine tools
- Increased env_projectedtexture limit
- Volumetric projected textures
- Enhancements to vanilla test element entities, such as the ability to color lasers
- Paint Gun, Adhesion Gel, and Schrodinger's Cube reimplemented
- Ladders re-enabled
- Most Mapbase features will be implemented
- Toggleable legacy movement (HL2/P1)
- Improved gel and portal color customization
- Expanded VScript API

Screenshots and videos of P2CE can be found on its Steam store page.
