    (Didn't know where to post this so, im hoping this was the correct place)

    So i recently decided to start making models for TF2,I got blender and read up on the basics, and everything was going just great until i had finished my UV map, and finished. I noticed that the TF2 models are all in .mdl format... Blender can't save that way and there aren't any plug-ins (as far as I know) that can solve this problem. So, is there a way to fix this problem? Thanks ahead of time.

    You have to export them as .smd and then compile the model with MDLcompiler
