Originally posted by Those Dirty Blues:There's a reason for this, actually. Mods on servers are affected by two main variables, sv_pure and sv_consistency.sv_pure is the main culprit behind mods not showing on servers. In my experience, sv_pure has two settings, sv_pure 1 (active) and sv_pure 0 (disabled). If a server has sv_pure set to 1, it will cause your game to default to vanilla, all the time. Only a server admin can change this setting. Most L4D2 servers aren't pure, but lots of them are.sv_consistency (two settings, 1 for on and 0 for off) checks for file disparity between the client and the server. If you have select custom skins, models or scripts, the server will find those and kick you. Once again, this variable is server-side and only the host/admin can change it. Setting sv_consistency to 0 may be required for hosting local servers, or playing in single player or a private listening server.
