L4D2 MODS
Hello all. I was just wondering.. you know how there are many l4d2 vids on youtube, with people playing multiplayer with texture mods? What i really dont understand is how other people see the person's character texture mod? or avatar texture mod or even a gun texture mod? this other day i was watching a vid where a guy was playing as nick, but the texture was re-made as a blue robot from portal 2 co-op. Someone care to explain please?

That guy had the mod too.

Btw you get mods from workshop and l4dmaps.com

all mods are clientside, if you install a mod only you will be affected by it, for other people to see the effects of a mod they must install it as well. This excludes serverside modes such as sourcemod and metamod as well as their plugins however a server cannot force you to download and see a shrek model (for example)

The person playing as the portal robot had a portal robot mod which turned his nick into a portal robot, other people without the mod will still see nick as nick and not as the robot. Mods that are found on l4dmaps.com or the workshop generally are only clientside and will not affect how other people see you or how their game functions, only your game will be affected.

hope this helped.

Not 100% true. Local server will make some clientside mods visible for all. Back when there was only one mutation at a time Id always trick people into a local game of gibfest on expert and turn off the unlimited ammo so theyd toss the m60 after 150 bullets and only be left with a magnum to fight off a horde of t800s.

miss them days

yeah it helped a lot guys :) it just got me thinking, because when youre on steam workshops, and you look at all the l4d2 mods you see screenshots where other character texture mods are visible.. so i thought some of the mods are visible for other players as well

That's server side mods. So yes you can effect others by changing cvars.

Client side mods are primarily skins/guis/lerp or personal settings.

Rofls correct.
