    Hi, I'm having trouble with packing custom content into my custom map. I use to use packrat and packbsp but ever since Steam Pipe came out I have been having too many issues with them. Either my stuff is getting corrupted or it just won't load my bsp. Is there another packing program that works with Steam Pipe?

    though for me, VIDE wasn't any better. I had to use pakrat but find the files manually.

    Is your custom content in your /download/ folder, Beetle?

    If so, you need to change your game folder to /tf/download/ instead of just /tf/. Works fine for me that way.

    Tried it. Leaves out random custom textures of models but not all... No matter where I have my content. That's kinda why I made that download folder thread

    Ah. It only missed one thing for me, one underwater material.

    and to be honest, pakrat probably misses stuff for me too. It just comes down to the UI if I have to end up making sure everything is there 1 by 1 anyway. The only thing I haven't got to pack correctly no matter what program I use is the nav file.
