Has landed..

Well I've been away for the past two weeks. And upon arrival of thy homestead, I see that It Is time to update CSS. "Oh another useless update" me thinks.. After watching a few episodes of House, bumming around on Photoshop, I attempt to play CSS at 50% completion(yes my interwebz Is slow). To my surprise It Is playable. So I connect to my usual server([-STIPE-] Dust 2 for you! Aus.) and upon connection I see In the chat panel "zBlock: [STEAM:blahblah..." :O. And then I get Auto-Kicked from the server. YAY FOR SV_PURE. No more custom Skins. Woot?

    I know, it sucks... And you know what? I can't host my own games anymore to test maps/skins because I'm too noobish to figure out how to disable it.

    Sv_pure just loads the normal GCF's of CSS. You can still have custom content, but you may only use them on servers with sv_pure set to 0.

    Also, this does stop the material cheats going on so it is even better than before.

    Well Zblock was released here. And i don't know why skins can be offensive or anything.
    Unless it is a model compile then whatever.
    But it seems stupid, people stopping us from playing cs:s because we have custom skins or whatso.
    I hate Zblock, forever....
    P.S:The person who made Zblock must of hate us all.
    Edit:join servers with custom content?

    Zblock and sv_pure are meant to stop material hacking.

    ZBlock just blocks certain cvars which are used by wallhacking / cheating programs.

    If sv_pure 2 is set on the server, you just have to use the default skins, models, weapons etc. and if you don't like it then go search for an other server which doesn't have sv_pure.

    My idea:

    Make it so you can see other peoples skins while playing, even if they have default skins. You know how this would help? You can catch t3h spl01t3rs (Wallhackers) while spectating them. Also it's fun to see what skins other people use.

    Anyways, just deal with it. If you hate it so much, get your own server.
    Just because you can't use your custom guns on some servers isn't that bad. It doesn't affect the game at all, and it stops mathackers.

    People bitch if they do nothing, and people bitch if they do actually do something. Either way VALVe gets bitched at so just be happy that they even took the effort to make this.

    Zblock was made for matches and whatnot, it disables everything and kicks you if you have skins, seems like a leagues best friend, although i had a couple skins and join'd a zblock just fine.

    Yeah the bandwidth and download time would be too much to see everyones skins. Imagine the amount of RAM you'd need to keep the game running smoothly with all that on.

    And people complain about downloading sounds and skins from servers as it is, this would just make the game unbearable.

    Sersiously, sv_pure is almost a godsend for competative leagues.

    It forces people to use all of the same content, thusly preventing nay kind of cheating. It also means that people who want to use custom skins in pub play mean's they can without having to fiddle about with uninstalling them for a match. Which is damn useful for me, as that was the only reason I didn't use custom skins.

    Chances are a lot of servers will permantantly have sv_pure set to 1, but then again, it's an easy way to prevent cheating. A lot of variables have also been made sv_cheat ones, so again, stopping hackers a lot easier. Granted, it will only be a couple of weeks before hackers get around these changes, but it's getting increasingly difficult each time to do so.

    I say, get over the fact you can't use custom skins in your regular server.
