    Now we all know one of the first thing we tell newbie mappers is that to see only TF2 textures is to use the TF keyword. Whilst this does filter out all the non-TF2 textures it also removes a few of the TF2 textures aswell, only a few though. after a long search I managed to find some calendars, it turns out they dont have the TF keyword
    So here is a list of the textures and descriptions that don't have TF as a keyword to help you find those tricky textures (Its short now, please post ones you find to expand it and I'll update this post)

    Texture/Description
    • "Metal/metalwall003a" - The white pannels seen in the stairwell on 2Fort (blu base only)
    • "Sign/sign053" to "Sign/sign094" - These include a whole load of posters, the calendars from the spawn rooms and the arrow signs from gravelpit
    • Developer textures - commonly assosiated with orange maps but are actualyl a usefull tool
    • Tool textures - playerclip, nodraw, skybox, trigger, black...etc all these brushes are very usefull and you will certainly need them.
    • Metal/metaltruss001 - This white metal truss texture is used in cp_badlands at the top of the final cp, I'm not entirely sure if its from HL2 but it fits TF2's theme very well

    Those are just to get the ball rolling, its up to you lot to expand the list, I don't have time to search though all the textures myself.

    Possibly a dumb question, but is there a way to "know" they're a tf texture or used with official valve maps besides simply seeing them in one of the stock maps?

    with both the signs and the metal wall texture i saw them ingame and could not find them in hammer with keywords set to TF. I turned off TF as a keyword and there they were.
    I'm pretty sure the only way to know that they don't have TF as a keyword is to find them missing when you know they exist.

    The texture test/colour003 is used as the desk surface in 2fort. Not sure if it is the only test/colour used ( there are 15 others) but none of them have the keyword "tf".

    A little late, but, the textures in the signs/ directory are all from TF2, yet only about 2/3 of them appear with TF in the keywords.
