    That is the whole point in steams update. sv_pure was made to block people from changing textures. (Clear wall, colored skins, red dotting) When any file don't match the original file in the gcf it is over written. Custom content such as sounds skins and such are filed separately and as long as the server has it on the white list it would be allowed.

    red dotting? is that where you have your crosshair as just a dot in the middle of the screen? cause you can effectively do hud_dynamiccrosshairs 0 and it's kosher.

    VIPER doesn't use sv_pure. If you used that on an sv_pure server, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't work.

    The pic was from viper's server but this can work around sv_pure.This issue was fixed for the longest time. not sure why it isn't now. Maybe the servers are not setup right. But the server side should be checking game. This is how the hacked steam programs where working. This is also an issue cuz it gets around server bans. As all you need to do is make another steam account and any user can use the source mod.

    This is why empires is in no way competetive, and never will be. Clan scrims are on the same level as pub matches.

    Doesn't make the game less fun though. Especially when I can cruise in my dino jeeps firin my lazers.

    Afaik, and this I'll admit that I haven't tested, trying to join a pure server with a 2.31 install wouldn't work at all (different DLLs), whereas trying to join with a mod install I have no idea. It may work, it may not. But realistically, it would be easy (via the wonderful medium that is steamfriends) to see anyone not using legit versions. And anyone offline whilst playing, is in my opinion, pretty much showing their guilt straight up.

    Steam could be down. You never know.
    Also, I have my non-steam version labeled as "Empires non-steam".
    Though, I don't use transparent walls. That's just cheap.

    Delete the (Mod Empires) folder, re-extract the Steampires cfg, re-add custom content.

    Yeah I just made them transparent to see if I could. Now I am going to make them more futuristic. My idea is to give my empires the whole futuristic science fiction look.

    The transparent walls only make things harder. As you only really see them as your running into them with a vehicle. As for seeing people threw them....That is kind of pointless with cameras and auto spot you know the when someone is on the other side anyway. on a side not I suggest anyone working on skins maybe post them up on gamebanana cuz all the stuff on there is old and we need some new stuff. Plus it will help bring more people to this game.
