I've been working on a utility to help me with my Source mod creation, called Mod Maker

Mod Maker


Compiler - Drag and drop files onto this icon to fire up the configurable compiler.  Useful for compiling QC scripts into MDLs.

Setup Source SDK - If you've got a new mod installed click this and the mod will be added to the Source SDK configuration for you and any FGDs added to hammer.  Useful if you map for many mods.

Hammer - For source 2013 mods finding and launching the hammer can be a pain.  Mod maker auto-detects Source 2013 and launches hammer for you, just like the old 2007 SDK used to,

Model Viewer - For source 2013 mods finding and launching the HMLV can be a pain.  Mod maker auto-detects Source 2013 and launches the model viewer for you, just like the old 2007 SDK used to,

Make Installer - Cleans up the game folder and packages with the NSIS installer system to make installing your mod on other machines as easy as ABC.  I've been using this to build installed for Exterminatus for years.

Localization -  Handles all the files necessary to translate your mode into the various languages supported by steam ( ironically the UI only comes in English).

Steampipe Packer - This tool can package all the available content of your mod into VPKs for faster loading.  I used this for the Beta 8 version of Exterminatus.

Cleanup - Cleans up the user generated and temporary files from your game folder.  Usually handled before making an installer or re-distributable.  But sometimes you just want to be tidy.

Make Patch - Cleanup followed by archiving all files form the game folder that have changes since the last archive.  Useful if you want to distribute just changes since the last build of your mod.  I've used this for making the alpha patches for Exterminatus.

SMD to QC - Takes reference SMD (model source)

In relevance to your previous comment about people helping, I'd be willing to help you animate stuff. I've tried to animate stuff before but i lost interest. I am however extremely interested in anything to do with a space marine FPS. the only thing is that I don't have any guidance. I would be happy to help as soon as possible. Plz write back soon

i think you need to organise a time to get everyone going onto a server because all servers are almost always empty.
