So what are the steps involved to make Portal Mod\Maps with the most recent update that includes the new Source Engine 2009?

It is has been several months since I mucked around with the SDK, and there is no more "Orange Box" option to create Portal Mods\maps. Can't create any mods with Source Engine 2009, and there's no option to create a Portal Mod under Source Engine 2007.

What's the work around?

Thx!

So you can make a new set of levels (content mod only) but you can't make a multi-player mod with a portal gun. Am I correct?

That is realistically correct. Nothing is impossible, but so far all indications is that to make it work would more-or-less require some serious professional level C++ coding. Currently the SDK does not provide any Portal specific source code.
