    I'm new to mapping, working on my first map.

    I downloaded Youme's Blue and Red Dev texture pack, and I searched my Steam folder for a while looking for where to save them.

    I even searched my steam folder for what I thought were the names of the default textures, but couldn't find where they were saved.

    I eventually just dumped them in some materials folder around /***/team fortress 2/tf/materials.

    Now they can be found in the texture browser in hammer, but only appear as a missing texture, pick and black chequered.

    Can anyone please help out a newbie?:)

    that wouldn't work at all since VTMs for the VTFs point the file using a specific path. terrible advice.
