Where exactly to dump models

I seem to be facing a little issue, the end result hasn't seemed to matter yet but I'm just wondering for down the road. Should I be putting my models in the rims folder or the override folder? I have been seeing mixed answers and just want to know the correct way to do it.

Thanks!

Put your *.mdl and *.mdx files to the Override and everything will be ok.

Almost everything that you make will go in the override folder. If you're doing modules, you'll use the module folder too.

I would say only put things you know you never want replaced in the rims folder.

Ahhh I guess that makes sense why some of these big mods have their .mdls and .mdx in the rims folder. Thanks!

@SithSpecter

Thanks! That seems to be the pattern I've been noticing and I guess it makes sense .
