    3DSMax with decompiled/custom models so I can see how it looks. :) Along with Photoshop CS2/CS3 for the actual texturing process, and Notepad++ for VMTs.

    Lets make this a nice list for you instead of all those posts above me who've just made it a one sentence list...

    1. Texture Creation:
      1. Photoshop 7.0 or above
      2. Gimp
    2. Check/Compile Textures:
      1. 3DSMax 7 or above
      2. VTFEdit
      3. VTF Plugin for Photoshop
    3. Editing of VMTs:
      1. Notepad++
      2. VTFEdit

    I included VTFEdit as well as the plugin as, which one you use is all down to your preference. I've also included links to said programs and links to the tutorials section for each category. However it's all about 'la-de-da' because I haven't got much time to check all the links etc.

    I hope this helps you get started with skinning and I hope to see you on the front page very soon ;-)

    I have to say i cant stand gimp but alot of people seem to do just fine with it

    personaly photoshop was one of the best investments i never made [my dad got it for work :) ]

    but its really up to your financal state, but both work fine
