    Yeah, I know that sv_pure 1 is enabled so that people cannot use exploitative mods like see-through-textured walls and other whatnot. But really, who is really gonna do that crap on a popular community server in 2016 anyway? And since its common knowlege at this point, sv_pure does not protect against LMAOBox, so why have it enabled in the first place?

    I just want this question answered becasue its been on my mind for the past year or so coming here.

    What difference does it make if it is enabled or not?

    So long as my HUD and sounds work, who cares?
    Years ago, when I was a crazed brony, I'd probably have been obsessed with sv_pure, and on some occasions now, a few mods make me want to slip them on. As for now? We don't need it.

    Well, sv_pure 0 would allow you to use custom skins or what not.... I don't know, is it server-wide or is it client-side only?

    Hell, that would be hilarious to see Female Scouts running all over the place.

    I am more concerned about performance when it comes to this, especially with the amount of custom maps that the server has.

    It's client-side only. Its only for the player with the mod.

    Isn't sv_pure 1 configurable? You can allow what you want and don't want. Instead of asking for sv_pure 0 which is unlikely, ask for something to be whitelisted in sv_pure 1. I don't run a TF2 server so maybe I misunderstand the settings.

    Personally, I'm not missing anything I want as it is.

    This is never going to change. pure 1 is generous enough.
