    Is there any possibility of uploading some new skins to the server? The GIGN has good potential I think, it's just the bright yellow target on the head that makes it useless.

    I found some neat reskins of it:

    Realism

    CS 1.6

    CSCZ

    SWAT

      There's little point in adding any skins to the server right now, because they're still not working properly since Valve released a second skin for each team. I'm trying to figure out if mani has released an update to fix it, but judging by the steam forums, the news isn't good.

        I think its set during the third episode, where the clones are starting to look (and begin behaving) more and more like the storm troopers.

          i agree, it does seem like a cross between the Clones and the Storm Troopers

          either way...it looks damn cool!

            Woah, has my computer done something right? My skins have been working for a little over a month 0.o


            And oh yeah, now that I know you're a nerd, I think you'll like this:

            BTW: you should add this to the server and use at as your personal skin:

            PPPPPS: I just found this looking for the rebel skin. It should make you happy.

            One last one: Dear God, could this skin be used for punishment or SOMETHING!?

              You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Priest again.

              LOL Now that I'd like to see.

                No prob - I just took care of his rep. The chubby was pretty hysterical, and the stormy looked like a hard b'stard.

                        Re: Skins

                        Okay, I think this is starting to annoy me in more than one way. The first is technical. On maps where I previously had no problem (like de_view), I am getting serious frame rate issues. In fact, I'm experiancing jerkiness in all maps. This didn't happen at all before the new skins were added (remember, I haven't been playing here for a while, so I'm only now noticing this). My FPS is going from what was a steady 60 maybe dropping to 30 to a steady 30 often dropping to 10. My guess is that having to keep in memory and render up to 5 extra high resolution textures at distance is one reason for this.

                        My second problem is that the skins make the two teams too similar looking. This doesn't mean more TKs... on the contrary, I've found myself several times not shooting at a player because I thought they were on my team. I realize that I need to get used to the skins, but this is a complaint that is still heard from people who have played with them for a while.

                        I propose 2 solutions: a client side ability to disable the extra skins (I think if I just change the extra ones that it will still be pulling up 5 different instances of that texture, and don't we have consistancy enabled?), or map specific skins pre chosen, so that on some maps all T's are one skin and CT's all another. Or maybe even an option between the two.

                          I have no problem with you using your brain to decide whether potential targets are, in fact, team mates. If skins are going to slow gameplay down a notch, then they're a success in my book.

                          This is something I've briefly considered in the past. The idea already has the Root stamp of approval, but I have yet to find out if it's possible on a technical level. So far, I'm not scoring many points when it comes to ideas.

                            If gameplay is slowed down, it shouldn't be done so artificially. Now, the game is beginning to reward players who dont distinguish so much, and punish those who confirm their targets more thoroughly.

                            Anyway, I'm pretty sure that you could implement a settings script for each map that only gave the option of switching to a particular skin, and that didn't have an exit key, forcing them to choose.

                            1. Choose CT skin - Urban Grey
                            then
                            1. Choose T skin - none

                              The autoslay for TK's balanced that out, no? Overall, the autoslay wasn't deemed right, so we're left to find another way. I could reduced sv_maxspeed, but that's a different thread.

                              Kark, it's possible to have a .cfg per map, in which we can specify things like c4timer, freezetime, etc. If you have the time and inclination to research this, you may be able to find the line I need to force a particular player model. As long as such a solution allows for a custom model AND marpat on each team, I'm happy to trial it on one of the servers. I'm inclined to do this on server 1, and leave server 2 as it is. There are maps where there may be tactical value in players selecting different skins based on the routes they are instructed to take.
