I'm beginning to notice quite a few recolors of default models coming back into the Counter-Strike: Source skin section. What's worse is that some of these are receiving fairly high ratings (anywhere from 8-10) for being very low quality. When I say recolors I know that things like glove skins and defuse kits generally have to be recolors, I mean knives and deagles. I wanted to bring this to everybody's attention so that we can avoid having FPSB look how it was before, a few original models and 80% recolors of default models and other people's models. Has anybody else noticed this?

    I haven't noticed anything like this, but I have seen some eally useless and practically rubbish content slowy seeping in. Also, things like vending machines, which are quite possibly the easiest thing to skin, are being done to much, not that I have a problem with variety.

    The quality of the skin itself will have little impact if any on framerates. The thing that affects framerates is the number of polies in the model which will be the same regardless of skin.

    Recolours are good for kittens. God kills a kitten when Millenia releases a skin.

    No no, it's the opposite

    Recolours kill 32 kittens each time one is submitted. God shits 27 puppies when Millenia releases a skin.

    Oh and by the way Cigano, three month bump ;)

    That's not entirely true and you know it. Texture size can have a huge impact on load time and stutter (and maybe framerate if your video card is that bad) while Source can oddly display a lot of polies relatively easily.

    Not that any of that is an excuse for there to be five pages of deagle recolors.

    *edit*
    Oh goddamn bump.

    Bumps are good. CIgano likes bumps. Bumps are good for CIgano. God also likes bumps, like CIgano. CIgano is aroused. CIgano is going to rape someone.

    Bumps are not good and it's a miracle that you are comment level 3.
