    All the information you need is out there on the internet. either on the blender website or the valve developer wiki.

    Oh please, the first thing everyone thought when they were playing TF2 was "Oh God there should be a volcano lair."

    eh i would, do some modeling but you cant really do much with a "volcano" theme considering that nobody lives in volcano or anything like that.

    Basicly Swamp is perfect since there are several differnt man-made things in a swamp but you wont find anything in a volcano unless it's for a secret underground base, but even that is covered by the spy tech theme.

    Indeedy. So much so that my immediate circle of "Things That Feel Similar" was Get Smart, NOLF, that Evil Genius game, and Austin Powers movies.

    Out of curiosity, why is that emphasized? Is it that there's a lack of export tools for dynamic things, or that Blender is too painful to use for things like spinning fans?

    hmm i think there is a few things mainly textures eg-magma rock,concrete with cracks full of lava, a burn decal, dark mountain rock, a skybox texture but mainly models like skins of all the rocks which look like they belong in a volcano, a cage, melted metal, a few skybox mountains, metral boxes, maybe new items eg sanvich fridge which restores your sandvich, different looking healthkits and ammokits, and a foot locker which changes your weapons :)
    btw im stumped with how to add skins to a valve model can any1 help ???
