You would have to be able to edit all the various model files for that to work.

Yeah, what the hell, man!? That's just down-right UNREALISTIC! You sicken me!

How/can you take an entity (such as a barrel) from DODS and put it in CSS?

Using the program GCFScape, you can do just this. You just need to extract whatever model you want, and it's corresponding textures, and plop them into your css directory.

There's a link to GCFScape in the top sticky of this forum.

AMMO, that looks cool but you should add some more models or brushwork to the grass. Now it's a bit empty. And the skybox doesn't tile at all but that's not hard to fix.

I don't like how all of your cliffs end in a sharp edge like that. Have them all come out at different places or curl over or something. Also add a bit of foliage around that area. Some purple/bright orange grass would be cool.

Just compiled beta2 of de_absurdity yesterday, and aside from quite the laundry list of problems to fix, one thing I know for sure is really gonna get me is the sounds!

Source is very peculiar about how it decides on sound volumes, despite what the radius looks like in Hammer. One sound in particular I can hear from VERY far away from its location, despite the radius being much smaller. In order to remedy this, the sounds radiuses would have to be smaller still, but then some people *cough* would say the sounds are a little too quiet. :P

Looks like there's fun times ahead for me!

If you can't hear it from your speakers without turning them up higher than normal, then the sound is too quiet for most people. It's up to you to decide where you want the sounds to be heard at maximum volume.

Yeah, most of my sounds are okay, but two in particular seem to be amplified beyond belief. Plus, since my computer lacks speakers, i'm limited only to headphones. That may or may not be the big difference.

If you dare, make your own soundscape. Sounds wouldn't exactly radiate from a point, but you could make it so when you enter room A, music A fades in. I thought about implementing a soundscape into abstractplane, but then I decided people might become annoyed because they can't run away from the sounds. I prefer ambient_generics for music in a cs map for now. But yeah, source is really weird with them. I expanded the radii so they overlapped in abstractplane, which I personally didn't care about, but it would be nice if they had two radii, one for maximum hearing distance, another for how close you must be to hear the sound at max volume.
