For All Those Who Use Custom Content
I sent a similar thread to Steam forums over a year ago without result nor reasonable responses. It's time to open up my voice again for this matter.

This is not a rant, this isn't pointless ♥♥♥♥♥ing. This is a suggestion to start knocking at Valve's door to make an addition to the next patch - considering users-contributed, custom content to the game itself.

Let's cut to the point. I am sick and tired of re-installing the custom skins, sounds, models etc. every time I enter to a server with sv_pure flag is set to 2 (meaning that all "impure" content isn't allowed and use vanilla content instead). This messes up the game - and what's much more annoying is that less than a year ago the game began freezing up TF2 and crashing in the process every time this occurs. This also corrupts the custom skins and sounds beyond repair, which may or may not be restored via re-install (I've got two skins which I haven't been able to get working again - after I happened to enter an "sv_pure 2" server).

Now my frustration begins to reach critical limits, and it just makes my blood boil when this topic isn't further discussed on Steam Forums (as I mentioned before, I sent a thread there, without progress), and when I sent a personal message for Valve staff, the response is classic: "This message belongs to the Steam Forums."

All I wish is to see the sv_pure flag BEFORE I enter to the server. This would become useful for the whole gaming community.

For three years I've been waiting for this update.
Three years with constant re-installing of custom content due to lack of whitelist/blacklist information.

So please, Valve - this is a suggestion, a dire suggestion. This addition would help the whole community that contributes new interesting content to your game - the game with such lively and wide community.

And community itself, hear me:
I love TF2 as much as you do, and I adore how so many people contribute the content in daily basis, whether it is for personalisation, the need for something new, or wish to get selected by Valve to make your stuff official content.

Please, spread the word. I don't wish to see people get discouraged using custom content nor creating something new.

I'm surprised Valve has not done this.
I really want to see this added, but its pretty hard to spread the word because...

Simply put: Wow.

If this was the most intelligent post around here, HOW mentally incapable the majority of the gamerkind is?

If people keep ignoring this, we'll keep waiting the patch like Episode 3. It's about activity and at least TRYING to spread the word. You may pick a better and catchier title than me, I believe.

To be fair, as a mac user, I spend all my extra gaming time looking into methods for creating wineskins so I can play games like Grim Fandango, and Baldur's Gate 2. I don't even mess with custom content for tf2, I'm just glad it works with OSX!!!

Having said that I think implementing some of these user created details into the advanced options menu, or adding a menu would be a great idea! I'd love to change the damage notification sound, and things of that nature. Alternate huds would also be great.

I don't really know what any of us can do about it other than simply voicing our opinions.
