    Only problems with custom skins are they add more time to the download when you're trying to get into the server.
    (Get in line cuz i want the Master Chief skin :p)
    EDIT: And most new players aren't going to want to wait a long time to join a server they've never played before

    Like smile said, we would add tons of new skins if we could but @Eoj Charlie seems to have found the perfect balance of download times to shop amounts ratio

    sounds like a good plan. I do understand that most people, that are server hoping, have no patience and are just looking for a good/ok server to quickly join.

    We are considering, doing the following:
    • Reset of all items, points and etc.
    • Having a monthly skin(s).
    • Removing the less popular ones for less clutter.

    Great idea. I totally recommend that. It would be much easier for the server. Instead of people randomly buying skins.

    Although there's also a fear people will get uber pissed. So Not sure how I want to go about it. Maybe giving something special to the people who are around before the "PURGE".

    Agreed. Also hopefully it lowers the amount of people kosing off of skins* That really gets annoying...

    Well, that's just inherently what happens when you offer customization. Part of me was considering creating another TTT server that's vanilla (mostly), I'd probably call it like French Vanilla, because we'd pretty up the HUD and GUI.

    Hmm... creating another TTT server that's little more decorative.. that sounds good, but the HG server has the lag because of the pointshop right? I'm wondering if that could happen to the second server... I'm not really sure if the HUD and GUI would cause to much lag. I'm not to sure about it, but i like the idea.

    The second server wouldn't have anything other than a HUD change and GUI change. No pointshop, custom weapons or etc.

    The lag is mainly because the way Gmod works, it's something I want to look into, Gmod weirdly performs on Linux servers, because Garry prefers Windows. (Most games run best on Linux servers), but because of this & the fact that HG runs Linux on our servers, sometimes leads to strange things like that. I do want to do some testing and figure out if there's anyway for further optimization but that would take a HUGE amount of work and probably wouldn't be in the cards for quite some time.

    I'm not sure why does some players (for some reason) like decorative servers. I love servers with great and friendly staff, and also friendly players. Some people nowadays are looking for great staff rather all the fashion and things about the server. I rather play my games without any hackers/ anyone who is trying to ruin my game.

    Some people just want a simple playing experience not hindered by custom models or etc to "ruin" the game.

    I really hope that a fix is somehow possible. Is there anyway HG can run on Windows instead of Linux?
