    I've come back after a 2 month break from mapping only to find my forest props,in particular the rocks,are missing their textures. I've looked into this already and found the same issue happened several years ago, based on the forum post time. I'm not sure where to go from here.I've done the following...

    -Used GSFscape to defrag,and validate files
    -Defragged files from steam,and validated files from steam
    -Defragged my entire hard drive
    -Re-installed the TF2 content,and TF2 Materials GCF files.

    It sounds like a lot of work for just a few missing textures,but I've yet to get it to work.I really would love to have these;I would like to have different variants of rock besides gray.

    Check your tf/models folder for rocks in the props_forest folder with the same name.

    Someone made reskins ages ago, Valve implemented some themselves with Mannworks. Removing my local ones fixed it for me.

    so just delete the entire forest file that has something to do with rocks?
