All of the models are in editable mesh format, with no materials applied. Some of the larger models have grouped, instanced units to keep file sizes low.
The lighting system featured in the preview windows is not included, but is available for free from Turbosquid. The system uses a special configuration of shadow mapped lights to simulate the effects of global illumination, without complicated photon tracing and at a fraction of the render time.
