Hey guys, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I'd just like to voice my word for sv_pure settings.

sv_pure settings, if you don't know, allow you basically to use custom skins/sounds/materials.

The problem inherent with this is that a lot of hacking can take place. I feel however that there seem to be enough admins present to deal with this. Also SourceMod Anti-Cheat takes care of a lot of the hackers.

sv_pure settings allow you to:

Utilize this gem: Here.Here.

Allow you to use this gem: Here.Here.

There are just so many custom skins that I'd love to use but unfortunately when I enter Trigger Happy Gamers, it royally messes up. Pink checkerboard textures and extremely annoying high-pitched noises for custom sounds.

All in all, I love these servers, it's just something that I've love to see changed. That's all.

Love,
Snack Patrol

Is there any feelings about change for this?

Well if I recall correctly, sv_pure was discussed several times here.. Add the outcome was always that it will stay since having sv_pure 0 prevents the server from being in Valve matchmaking which brings new players to the server. And let's be honest here, the server is pretty much empty during the day, so closing this stream of new players wouldn't be very wise step. But that is just my opinion Smile

There are a few reasons why it should be activated as owen has pointed 1 of the main 1s out. The sv_pure is on "on" most / all servers just some have white lists which we have never done, It requires the list to be constantly updated and allowed items to be added, there are allot of skins and addons that help you cheat or are a cheat too but then there are alot that are cool as you pointed out.

Not really sure whats best these days i could look into it or another admin could "carlos" if you got time lol. Its something to do with a whitlist and adding content that's aloud that's as far as i got, me and slate was going to do it but as said its really best to be safe  Wink

If the server is pretty much empty during the day, then having the server in the matchmaking pool isn't really helping much  Razz In the evenings its not an issue as the server is full of regs who aren't using the matchmaking system to find the server.

Personally though I'm with owen on this one, I think we should keep the servers in the matchmaking pool. If that means that sv_pure must be set to 1, then so be it.

The other issue is that not only does it create more work for whoever keeps the whitelist up to date, it also makes us reliant on it to keep 'cheating' skins / models out. The admins will have no idea what models the client is using.

[I'll admit I don't know much about what models etc are available]

My two cents.

Hey, thanks for the reply guys. Just fyi it doesn't have anything to do with quickplay settings. I run a server and plenty of people join in from quickplay with sv_pure set to 0. If you want, here is a list of things that actually affect quickplay. However, the argument for keeping it that way to combat cheaters is a strong one.

So anyway, thanks for responding.
