Regarding mods (not full conversions, but things like updated moves), skins and models, what happens if I join a server as the only person with these additions installed?

1) Will other players see my changes or will they exist solely on the client side?

I would assume they would be client side only, but I have to wonder.

2) assuming it is client side, what would others see if I chose to use an entirely new model? A skin would revert to the original used, right? A model, on the otherhand, has no compliment.

Thank you very much.

If your using a skin thats not on a server or other clients machines you would see it but it would go to the default of those without it. I'm not sure about the model.

Ok, that's what I thought. Question is, I know some servers download maps if you don't have them, does this process work for models and skins other players utilize ? Or does it only work for server side content.

It theoretically could work for both, but not sure how if raven implimented it.

anybody know the final word?
