So I have been looking at getting into the mod making business but don't know how. Might want to do weapon skins, skins for different classes and anything else I can think of. I just don't know what I need to make them and how. If someone could tell me I would be happy thanks.

    If it's retextures, you'll want GIMP with the VTF plug-in; if it's models as well, you'll want Blender with the Source tools addon.

    You'll also need GCFScape with which to open VPK files that contain the actual stuff to mod, VTFEdit to view VTF files, and Crowbar to compile/decompile models.

    Read all about it here.
