    I would like to replace the intell briefcase in my map with the mop and bucket model (props_2fort/mop_and_bucket). How could I do this? I can't find the option to change the model anywhere.

    You should be able to right-click the intel briefcase (prop_static or whatever it is, might be a prop_detail since it spins) and choose 'world model' from the list, then search for mop.

    Might be odd to steal a teams mop and bucket though :w00t:

    I'm sure there will also be weird happenings like the mop handle either sticking through the player who grabs it or sticking 5 feet out behind them. Depends on the attachment bone I guess.

    (youme is not gonna like this idea ;) )

    No, that's not possible. The flag is an entity, not a prop. So you have to replace the model with a custom one. You want the bucket prop from the game. You could try to extract and rename it but the other players wouldn't have it unless you pack it into the map which is illegal because it's from the game.

    No it wouldn't be illegal to release your own model. The legality issue is because you would be releasing valve content and someone who doesn't own the game could get it through your file.

    There's a thread in this forum containing links to all the maps, isn't that illegal too?
