    Hi everyone, I've been thinking of downloading some custom props to use in hammer for mapping purposes, the thing is that I don't know where to place the files once I download them. It would be of great help to know where the files go.

    If the creators of the props weren't morons, the file you got was an archive (ZIP or something similar) containing folders named "models" and "materials", either in the top level or inside a third folder named "tf". You need to get into the Team Fortress 2 folder inside SteamApps — typically C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Team Fortress 2 — and drag the materials and models folders on top of the folder named "tf". If Windows asks if you want to merge the folders with the ones that are already in there, say yes both times.
