    By pure mode, I'm guessing he means sv_pure.

    It blocks all custom models and materials and whatnot that users have when they enter the server, so it's all defaulted.

    I don't like it, I think it was much better before. Is pure mode default on every server now? Because all my favorite servers have it on.

    Besides, there is already sv_consistancy, so I didn't use skins much in the first place.

    Why does everyone have a problem with it and say it is going to kill skins and FPSB? For the most part, the only servers which actually use it are match servers.

    Pure mode is a great thing. People could use skins that help them in-game and gave them a significant advantage, mostly when aiming, so it's a good thing.

    sv_pure is not default on all servers. sv_pure is optional so it cant ruin css by forcing it on every server.
    In my opinion I love sv_pure however I cant find any sv_pure public servers out there. Sv_pure makes everything default including view models but I cant see how view models can give an advantage. For me the view model is the most important part of a gun skin and I hate the default gun models. I can see how other types of skins such as player models and wall textures give an advantage, but not view models. So I rek sv_pure should not enforce view models but make everything else default then I'm happy.

    "I cant see how view models can give an advantage."


    Well, making an advantage with v_models isn't quite easy, but I think I know how.
    For example I once took some k98 and garand skin from DoD:S (the ones with eotech) and hacked off the eotech so there was more space on the screen when aiming over ironsights.... plus I got a wonderful crosshair sniperlike line instead of the oldfashioned ironsights.

    ___________________________________________________________

    ONTOPIC:

    Well, it doesn't matter to me if people are using skins on public, but it annoys me when people can see through boxes (ghosting, basically wallhacking) or if they are using any other types of cheats.
    Valve should concentrate on doing something against cheaters, if they would want to end skins, they would have secured their gamefiles better.

    Ghosting isn't hacking, it is a form of cheating though. Its simply screen looking. In online its when you have a dead person tells you were the enemy is.

    Well, thats a form of ghosting. It doesn't have to be screen looking. You can ghost by having an Xfire chat open with a buddy who is dead, with him telling you where the enemy is.

    the reason valve mdoels suck is so that even crappy computers can run them, they would lose a lot of sales if say they were to create extremely high quality weapons that hardly anyone could run.

    I don't mind pure. My clan server runs it, but if I join a server without it activated, its a pleasant surprise that my skins are there again. Also there is different levels that it can be set at. For instance, on my clans server I still have my excellent player skins, but on some all skins are gone.

    Sv_pure 1 uses a list of contents to check and the list can have as few or as many items as you want on it. sv_pure 2 forces everything to be checked and verified.

    We host several servers on our machine and test different mods etc, Each time we have done Deathmatch, either CSS or HL2 we have run the pure mode on it. This is for one simple reason, Cheaters, Walling etc that occurs on major maps, Dust2 Office etc. The main maps, Now, having a server full of people using these simple and un-banable offenses is annoying, therefore, remove their ability to do so and you now have a populated server with only minor occurrences of hackers and not a flood of complaints.

    This and our match server and GG:Tournament server are the only ones running this value, the rest of our servers run normal cvar settings with skins on. Its good running your own server, if you want skins you got em :P
