    So I'm new to hammer, I'm currently working on a zm map, but I'm not shure how to get certain props i.e. red crate, vending machines, couches, bookshelves, etc... for cades. So far I've been able to find crates and that's it. Do I need to download props like I would textures or am I just looking in wrong place in world model? thanks!

    Most of the props used in various maps belongs to CSS/HL2.
    There are of course custom ones depending on the maps themselves but i'd say that the larger majority uses these already-existing props, so you shouldn't need to download anything unless you feel unhappy with the initial ones.

    Try searching for keywords in the model browser, such as:

    soda
    vending
    office
    shel
    crate
    nuke
    foliage
    light
    lamp
    tree
    inferno

    These ones are probably the most common keywords i usually search for, and with time you'll learn the name of all the props that you've taken a liking to.
    Happy mapping.
