Take that, Vault Boy!

You have successfully completed the mod wizard! The folder you chose to install to now has several sub-folders beneath it:

For your uncompiled maps (VMF files)
For your uncompiled textures (Probably TGA files)
For your uncompiled models (SMD and QC files)
All of the SDK's C++ source code. (The project files inside are configured specifically for the game you selected in the mod wizard, however.)

Additionally, a folder with your mod's name has been created under <Steam>\steamapps\sourcemods\. This is where files compiled from the folders above need to go, and what you will eventually release.

(Ignore the .bat files, they are broken, unless you know what you are doing to fix them.)

What now?

A barnacle, from Half-Life 2.
