They finally released sv_pure, havent tested if it's defaulted to 1 or not but I really don't care to me it's a bummer since I can't use my beloved custom models/skins/sounds What is the general consensus among the community? (theres a old thread about this but its obsolete since sv_pure is releeased) I didnt even bother posting/looking on steampowered.com because I'm sure they can care less I'm so bummed out (I haven't played css yet today so someone tell me if we can still use custom weapon/player models)

    What's sv_pure? I read on google for other games (Quake 3) that it doesn't allow any PK3 files. Is that for CS:S where you can't have any custom models or something?

    Exactly. Instead of having to uninstall all of your skins, it just loads out your default files, so you can have custom skins, but when you play on servers with sv_pure on, you use defaults. That way, scrimming and league is a lot easier.

    Sv_pure won't cause many real problems. If a server has it enabled, you won't be able to use custom content but instead, it will load that default content from the gcfs. It's not as bad as sv_consistency.

    Eh, doesn't bother me too much. I don't use custom skins too often. Except the Poke Finger Knife. <3 I love it.

    Actually I kind of like it. I'm sick of hackers.

    It stop hackers, but I just went into a bunch of pubs that had it turned off. (i only pub when i play css, i blow)

    it's good I don't have to uninstall them but it's still a bummer. it doesn't affect playability, it really improves it with the deterrence of vmt/vtf/whatever hackers

    I can live without my skins, but some of my skins/sounds make me actually want to use the gun..eh there's nothing i can do about it just wanted the communitys response

    I love my skins and all, but I'm willing to give them up to play on a server with less cheaters.

    You probably wont find many pub servers running it, but its is brilliant for war servers so 10/10 to vavle for this one also like how it replaces the skins back to default not stops you joinning.

    It pointless and most servers will not be using it. I really don't know why they released it.

    People will just find a way around it.

    No it means if you connect to the server it changes all youre skins to the default ones also youre map files. But basically 0 pubs will run this its mainly for war servers to stop mat hackers so its good ^^.

    It doesn't change all materials. I just tested it out and my custom l33t skin was still custom.

    like in the map cs_assault.

    ppl can see other guys' feet in the vents when they look from under and then they shoot you dead. its a real pain in the arse.

    That's not really fixable without re-doing animations or updating the map, which would take a few minutes to download. And I wouldn't consider that as big as a problem as mathackers.

    You guys are right, sort of like sv_consistency. Since I pub I shouldn't have made a big deal about it. SV_Pure is awesome for scrims/matches and whatnot..which custom skins would be the least of my worries in those situations (I've only been in scrims around 10 times, not good enough for that kinda competition).

    I shouldn't have gave my opinion without playing some servers first, but oh well. At least Valve is doing something about the vmt/vtf hack trick...even though they did it the easy ass way. Ah Well I'm not Valve am I? Who am I to criticize.

    I just found this, kinda late but just recently had the chance to look at it :
    "
    By default, the server will kick clients that are using content that is different from the content the server wants to enforce. If a server only wants to give clients a warning or see which clients are using "impure" content, it can set sv_pure_kick_clients to 0.
    "
    so if the server doesnt change the default value you will get kicked using blacklisted (items that arent on the whitelist) models/textures/sounds/what have you.

    Sv_pure should replace sv_consistancy.

    It is default set to 1, so I couldn't use custom skins in any servers without HL2 crashing for me. Way to kill a game Valve.

    Yeah it's a big bummer, so far all the servers on my favorites let me use custom skins, maybe they havent updated though? I dunno...

    and I agree about sv_pure replacing sv_consistency but that would be a bummer for modellers who want to see if their shit has consistency errors (bad clipping, sizes, etc)

    What they should do is take away the vmt transparency trick on critical files such as wall textures and stuff that arent supposed to be see through

    they put it in there for a reason i know that, but not every texture needs it..theres a better more user friendly way to get around those hacks....rather than just punishing everybody for a bunch of hacking assholes. I know it would be some work, but hell....

    From what I see, skinwise, recolors of the default that aren't "custom models" still work with sv_pure on, but the really custom stuff doesn't work.
    Ones make everything cooler.

    I don't know anything about it. If it actually deletes your custom content and resets everything to default, it's bullshit, if it just overrides your custom content, then I don't really care too much.

    I haven't had a problem with my custom skins/models/sounds lately. I haven't played much but I played a little tonight and haven't had a problem..

    so I dunno, seems like a wise move so far.

    I actually love this new feature as it is perfect for competitive play. Clan servers can restrict the use of modifications easily that way, without the owner having to delete his skins. If it actually becomes default for match servers, even League active players can finally use custom material without worrying to violate league rules...

    It's the first time I recall that Valve has updated something to the benefit of "Professional gaming".

    I don't think their focus was "Professional Gaming", I think it's just a solution to get rid of the VMT texture wall hackers.

    And I'm pretty sure league/scrimming servers will probably turn it on

    This is good, I hate people having red and blue player models and spot me when I'm hiding. Takes a part of zblock away. They had filecheck, but that made you delete the files.

    I played in a "n00b heaven" server today that had sv_pure on, there really wasn't a difference in my gameplay except that my sexy gloves were gone. I still went my usual bad score (15-23). Skins don't effect my gameplay, anyways.
    Pretty Much Amazing
