Question about add-ons
First, Im new to downloading mods and the like, so if this is a dumb question, that is why. Anywho, I was wondering do the weapon skin add ons or charecter skins I download show up for other people online? For example, I downloaded the MLP Machete skin, when I join a game, does that show up for everyone, or am i the only person that sees the skins? Or do I have to host a game for mods I have downloaded to become visable? Another example is the Slenderman skin for the Smoker, does everyone see him as Slendy since I join the game, or is it just me?

If they dont dont show up, would everyone have to download it then to see Smoker look like Slender? Just wondering, Im having a blast with these addons and was confused. Thanks:)

they only work on the client side so yes, only you can see em, just believe you are in pyroland

i dont know if servers can make people download mods, but i think thatd conflict with existing addons from that person, some boring♥♥♥♥♥servers disable mods tough, probably because the mothers of those servers didnt love them when they were young

As stated above, most mods are only client-side. The only time you will see another's custom skin content is if it is a custom campaign, such as a military Tank.
Hosting your own local game will not change this, however, certain mods will show through, such as weapon/game scripts and certain custom animations. If the people you're playing with don't have these mods it might be very confusing for them.

To sum, only you can see your mods, and if you want your friends to see how you play you'll have provide a screenshot or they have to download the mods.

People ask my why I'm laughing when the tank attacks. It's because he's doing a pretty good Hank Hill imitation.
