    I want to add sprites for this texture, but I can't find it's vtf and vmt file anywhere. Same with others.
    The texture is called "blendgrasstosnow001"

    You need to download GFCscape and open tf_misc_dir.vpk and tf_textures_dir.vpk from your tf folder to extract them.

    However that's not how you add sprites to a texture. You need to make a custom .vbsp file for that.

    Edit: Or add the correct %detailtype to your texture, actually.

    Note that some textures are used from Half-Life 2. As @Freyja suggested, download GCFScape and open either "hl2_misc_dir.vpk" or "hl2_textures_dir.vpk" inside the "hl2" folder if the previous VPK's don't contain your texture or material files.
