    I am trying to design a payload map, and part of what I want to do with it is make it in a bit more of an urban environment. However, most of the models that current exist for tf2 really don't fit the setting I want to try out. However, in L4D there are a lot of those kinds of models. I was wondering if anyone has done anything with the modding for L4D, and if you know if you can use the models from that with maps for tf2?

    I have no idea where to start looking for this, so I figured I would ask. :)

    No. Plain and simple, no.

    What do you need? Maybe someone can model a TF2 version for you.

    Heh, Well that is a bit of a unanimous answer.

    TotalMark, as to what I need, I am trying to have part of the payload go through the middle of an apartment. So I was hoping to take some of the amenities and stuff from No Mercy. Though I think I may take this as a chance to start playing around and learning how to do the model editing myself.

    Unless you give them a TF2 color palate, still no.

    There are a number of reasons why not, as others have said, its against the EULA, they don't fit, also, you would have a huge map because you would have to pack them into it. Also, think about what your trying, think if it works in TF2's theme.

    I think the basic answer has been covered. Constructive responses at this point might focus on helping reach the poster's goal in a different way.
