Some more ques... i have never modded a game before. Are there any prerequisites?
Also is there any book which teaches stuff abt the source engine? (for eg. there is a book <dont remember the name> which teaches TORQUE scripting authored by the dude who wrote the engine)

You need to know C++ to get anywhere with the source engine. Source is quite the beast and probably not a great place to start, it's not very easy but if you have the determination go for it.

I haven't heard or seen a book specifically about the Source engine, though there's probably lots of sites on the topic. Perhaps someone more experienced with Source can provide those?

Thanx for the heads up!!
I have a gud working knowledge of C++ !! Although i havent done much in terms of Windows programming (familiar wid basic stuff).
Wud u recommend some other engines apart from the source, which wont be obsolete in the near future (or even at present); ones tht i can get gud teaching resources for. Thanks a lot for ur help!!
