    If im right its a texture on a brush and not a prop. try filtering on 'map' when looking for textures. If it seems to have model/ in front of it then im wrong but im 99% sure its a normal texture.

    FYI, he means the map you can see in the back of this image:

    And btw, the image was googled and i didnt make it myself ;)

    If you want to find a texture it's always good to have the decompiled versions of the map at hand. These can be downloaded in the download section or decompiled yourself using vmex. If you want to decompile them yourself you'll need to extract the bsp file from the encrypted game cache file (gcf) in your steam directory using nem's gcfscape.
