    Nice. I thought that a lot of these websites are dead/offline. Apparently there's still gold in GoldSource :D

    Some more here.

    Hlbox17B is a good tool, it packs your maps  for you.

    Maps Packs creation :
    Create a zip archive of your map by incorporating automatically all the necessary resources (textures, sounds, models,
    sprites, skies, etc ...), and only them!
