    The texture in question is nature/blendgroundtoconcrete003. It exists in hammer and the game, yet is missing from the .vpk, or GCFscape just doesn't like it. Anyone know why it could be missing? And yes, I opened up tf2_textures_dir.vpk in search of it.

    It could be a custom texture paked with the map.

    That's because the one you are looking for is just a .vmt edit of 2 existing textures in the game. It uses these two textures:

    "$basetexture" "Concrete/concretefloor007"
    "$basetexture2" "Nature/dirtground009"

    You never use a texture, you always use a material. That is why it's called the material browser.
    You are looking for the VMT (Valve Material Type) files found in tf2_misc_dir.vpk.
