Any vmt command that will make a texture repeat?
Say you stretch out a model and instead of the texture stretching with it, it just repeats. like a tiled effect.

I'd like to know this too. I haven't found one.

Hm, well, I know materials already repeat in Source, so the question is more like: is it possible to dynamically alter a model's UV map? There is a VMT parametre, $basetexturetransform, that's supposed to change UV coordinates, but I'm not sure that can be animated (and the Wiki says that most likely doesn't even work with models, only brushes). Logically, if something could control UV coordinates, I'd bet on flexes, but I'm not at all certain they coded them to have that ability. It would actually surprise me if they did...

$basetexturetransform works with model textures that use $basetexture, like the "UnlitGeneric" and "VertexLitGeneric". You can add it as a material override (choose matrix) in SFM.
It then acts as a 2x2 matrix.
[1.5, 0 , 0, 0]
[0 , 1.5, 0, 0]
[0 , 0 , 1, 0]
[0 , 0 , 0, 1]
Scales the texture down.
You can perform other functions like rotation as well: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transformation_matrix#Examples_in_2D_graphics

Whether it can be animated, I haven't figured that part out yet.

You can use Proxies to make textures, say, scroll (that's what you mean by animation, right?) but it won't show in HLMV for some reason.
