    Is there's a new way of exporting models over source engine? It seems like my old exporter is now out-of-date. Do i need to download something? I have .smd exporter myself, but what i need to compile .smd's intro .mdl's

    Blender's smd exporter works fine, I've been using it all summer without issue.

    You use studiomdl.exe and .qc files to build them into mdl files so TF2 can use it. It's a standard part of the SDK and is in TF2's bin directory.

    This is what I do. It works way better than it used to, too.
