    Are there TF2 Zoos for style sets like the swamp pack and the construction pack? or even the most common TF2 Styles for Red and Blu. I know Valve added a few zoos to the l4d map set for content builders, just wondering if anyone has built some, found some, for TF2?

    The swamp zoo and construction zoo are the only ones I know of. A Boojum Snark's Ultimate Mapping Resource Pack includes a library of most of the props in the game, and there are .vmfs out there with pre-made lighting objects (lamps, etc.) and environment settings from the official maps, but other than that I don't think there's anything quite like the L4D stuff.

    what?... I seriously mean what... You want to transform TF2 into jungle juggly funhouse zoo... >_> Also i don't think it would be good idea.

    Not even close. :p He's asking about files which are basically libraries of props/prefabs for a certain theme (e.g. swamp) or category (e.g. lights), which are known as "zoos" since they put those map elements on display in a way similar to exhibits in an actual zoo.

    Speaking of the Construction pack. I just installed it. and WOW is the CP_entites map ever helpful. It gives you essentially all you need for spawns and caps. And the Ultimate Resource pack is pretty good, I actually skipped over that, and searched Tf2 Zoo and yielded no results, which resulted in this Thread.

    Thanx for the help PL-7764.

    Actually I think some jungly bits and or levels would be pretty cool, and different. maybe an idea for the next TF2maps Content Pack?

    cp_entities.vmf is included with SDK afaik. Also, using A Boojum Snark's gametype library makes setting up maps super easy.
