Add func_vehicle to the Source Engine!
This is for you VALVE but for you who doesn't know what func_vehicle is, it's a brush based entity that allows driveable vehicles in the older Counter Strike game like 1.6 and Condition Zero. I'm sure that most of the people that played 1.6 knows about it somehow, either through map making, or just through playing hilarious vehicle maps on 1.6 or Condition Zero. If you're still not sure whether you've played a map like that or not, here is two pictures showing how some of the thousand maps could look like:
This first picture is bad quality but I mainly want to show how you get a speedometer of some kind on your HUD when driving a vehicle:

The second picture is showing a more variety of vehicles:
Pic 2[i6.minus.com]

Those two pictures are taken from two different maps built by the same guy called NIPPER and it's only because if him I found out about func_vehicle and he also want it back (ofcourse), you can see his thread about it here:
func_vehicle - an open letter to the CS:GO team

I really want VALVE to add func_vehicle to the Source Engine. Only adding it to CS:GO would be super great but if you could implement it into the older source Engine like CS:S and, as said, up to the CS:GO version that would be extremely awesome!

Me and the rest of the people who played these kind of maps know how fun it is and understands what great loss it is to not have it added into CS:GO or any other Source game.
Lastly: VALVE, the community do so much for your games, I think it's time for you to give back by simply adding a brush-based entity called func_vehicle, no you don't even need to change it too much, we, the players and mappers, liked it just how it was/is.

tl;dr
  • func_vehicle is needed
  • NIPPER makes awesome maps
  • func_vehicle is needed
  • for all the Source games, but mostly CS:GO because it's the newest game I guess, Also... if you are planning on making more Source games, add it there too! Thanks <3
  • func_vehicle is needed
  • VALVE made Awesome games, but now they are not the same without func_vehicle
  • and func_vehicle is needed

If you're still not convinced, I recommend you read NIPPERs thread mentioned in the post.

I'm pretty sure I read that Half Life: Source have func_vehicle, wouldn't that make it even easier to add into games like CS:S and CS:GO

Umm I think it's based on what the game itself uses. For instance, you don't expect to find a portal gun entity in Counterstrike authoring tools.
