    I am using some custom models on my map but the models show up without a texture (pink and black checkers). What am I doing wrong and how can i fix it?

    You seem to be missing the texture files, did you make the models or where did you get them?

    I just installed the pack myself, and the models appear as they should. Are you sure you placed the files in the correct directories?

    If you're using custom, then the paths should look like this:

    Model files -> tf/custom/<something>/models/props_mayan/...
    Material files -> tf/custom/<something>/materials/models/props_mayan/...

    Basically, if you navigate to tf/custom, create a folder in there named anything you want, then move the models and materials folders from the downloaded zip into that new folder, it will work.
