I have made a comparative imgur screenshot collection of the various differences between a skin that doesn't work in sv_pure 1 and the Ordinary Carbon FaN skin. You can find it either in the comments or here.

Mods, if I have made a mistake by adding a this new category, I am sorry, I just realized this was a good idea for a category.

The Ordinary Carbon themed FaN skin by CHIMI works in sv_pure 1 without flaw, yet being 6 years old, I do not know how nor, why. But it just works absolutely perfectly, at the very least on valve servers, I may be simply too new to know how, but I thought it was interesting enough to make this thread- and thus a new category.

    There's always preloading textures, there's a file somewhere that can let you determine what textures are preloaded, same with sounds.
    I believe it's texture_preload_list.txt under tf_misc_dir.vpk.

    If I remember correctly, it's either removing the line of which your texture sits under or adding your texture, that will allow it to be used on sv_pure 1 servers although it's not a guarantee.

    I'll post screenshots showing differences between a sv_pure 1 disabled FaN skin and the Ordinary Carbon FaN skin. Just need to figure it out...

    Sometimes, mods can work on SV_PURE 1 or even 2 (although it is much rarer) but most of the time either the mods will load broken (sounds tend to cause the normal non-modded tf2 sounds to play with a garbled overlay) or will cause TF2 to straight up CTD (crash to desktop)

    It's not an exact science, and myself I'm still baffled on how some mods manages to go through the cracks of sv_pure 1.

    Okay, I'm testing it with the Canadian Boxing Gloves skin. I'll see if it works.

    The Canadian Boxing Gloves mod doesn't work, so I'll have to use a different one.
