    I realize that the Swamp Pack was added to the game a while back, but when it was added in, Valve only added the props that were actually used in the map; there are quite a few props, particles, etc. that are missing.
    I need the Water Payload explosion from the Swamp Pack, but this isn't used by any of the maps and thus isn't in the game. Swamp.tf2maps.net has a still-working download link to a few custom maps made with the Swamp Pack, but the actual link to the Swamp Pack is missing, replaced by a message saying it was added to the game.
    Does anyone have a mirror of the swamp theme? Or better yet, can somebody with the power to do so resurrect the link back on the swamp theme's page?
    Thanks.

    I don't think the swamp pack went official because a map went official when using that content. Valve just purchased the pack. Some things were left out, presumably because they weren't useful, of a decent quality or would be just difficult to implement. Such as the particles. I believe Valve only purchased the models and materials.

    I think the Skyboxes weren't bought either.

    We've told them it's missing. They said they'd fix it.

    Out of our hands, now.
