    I'm codding a tool for mappers so you know which files are you using in a map. I'm including vmt,vtf,models,sounds and particles. Am I forgetting something?

    This would be useful for the people who includes lots of cust content but they don't remember which files did they use.

    Future versions will have autopakrat.

    - The map txt file (the readme you see ingame)
    - .res files and those related vmt and vtfs for the TC overviews (these arent set in hammer and need to be checked if they exist!)
    - soundscapes

    Don't you mean "coding"

    Also these features are probably difficult to produce but it'd be cool to have them:
    - Integrated model and texture viewer
    - Grouping files that reference each other (texture of a model, vmt of a vtf etc)
    - Drinkholder, GPS and stereo
