how to access invasion props in hammer
Unfortunately you can't, unless you download them from the authors.
The Invasion maps, like the Gun Mettle maps, did not get their custom assets added to the game files - they are packed directly into the maps. You will not be able to use them in your own maps without acquiring them separately. Read this thread for more information: http://tf2maps.net/threads/about-packed-assets-in-maps-and-ownership-crediting.25970/
All I, personally, really need are the 2fort invasion props (and given they are made by valve, I'm fairly certain they are put in the game somewhere) so... where are they?
Unless valve did NOT put them in hammer and did NOT put them up for download, in which case...
It was not made by valve, it was made by a bunch of community people including Egan and Void
I have asked the guys who made the props and assets to release then for public use, have not heard back. Will follow up soon
Its strange cause I remember previous custom maps had their custom content purchased by valve themselves, such as the swamp pack and mann manor. I wonder why they didn't do the same for these last 2 rounds of maps. Bit of a shame really.
Bump. What's going on with that? Is extracting the props without premission legal? (since Valve brought it it should be their property) If not, who sould I contact?
It's right in the thread Killohurtz posted. Valve doesn't own the props in the map, the prop's maker(s) does(do). If you want to have their props in your maps, ask them. If you're unsure who made them, ask here.
