Ok heres a list of common questions on whats legal and whats not. The point is to try to answer ALL of them, but if you can't, try to answer as many as possible. My hope is to get the skinners to read this thread after people have answered and STOP making illegal skins. good luck answering! are: -lasers legal? -cs 1.6 skins to css legal? -css skins to cs 1.6 legal? -custom sounds legal(silenced sounds with custom loud sounds replacing it)? -brightly colored skins for people legal? -skins for walls legal? let me make this more clear. for the 4th question, putting on the silencer results in a more quiet weapon. if you replace the sound with another sound, for example, a LOUD gun sound in place of a silenced sound, is that illegal or against the rules in any way?

    -cs 1.6 skins to css legal? Illegal.
    -css skins to cs 1.6 legal? Illegal.

    All the rest is legal, unless you're talking about gaming competitions such as CAL, then they're all illegal.

    1. legal
    2. ports illegal, remakes from scratch legal
    3. see 2
    4. legal
    5. legal
    6. legal

    These are what is legal on the site, but brightly colored skins would be disapproved and trashed for lacking effort.

    I think you are asking about more than this site and if that is the case please be specific about what you are interested in.

    You are too paranoid. You can download whatever you want on this site as you please. You only have to worry abou legality if you are the one who submits and or releases the data. I will tell you anyway:

    CAL, any CS Championships:
    -Custom HUD's
    -Custom Scopes
    -Custom Skins
    -Custom Models
    -Custom Sounds

    FPSB Submissions:
    -CS:1.6 to CS:CZ Conversions
    -CS:CZ or CS:1.6 to CS:S Conversions
    -CS:S to CS:1.6 or CS:CZ Conversions
    -Other games to CS:1.6,CZ,CSS
    -CS:1.6,CZ,CSS to other games

    The submission one only applies to the defaults. Any other custom content that is in no way related to the defaults is free of the legality issues. But really, if you just want to download skins, then by all means, go ahead!
