Model Folder Structure

From The DarkMod Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

All darkmod models are now located in the "models/darkmod/" folder. This is to keep our models separate from the regular D3 assets. Note that many folders have sub-folders to organize things further. When there is a grey area, try looking at what is already in the folders to decide where your model should go.

Textures for specific models (other than map_specific) should go in models/darkmod/props/textures
