It would be easy to use custom skins as a cheat, imagine a transparent
shield, etc...

I don't think custom skins are allowed.

There is no shield in CS:S and you can alter weapon skins like you could in 1.6
because there are skin packs for download but I don't know how.

skins

Thanks for the correction, Toys.

Do you know if you can use custom player skins/models?
If you can, that's an easy cheat.... change all of them to bright yellow for
one team and bright purple for the other. Much easier to tell friends from
enemies , and much easier to spot snipers / campers.

.... just putting my devious mind to (mis)use.

As far as I know you can use custom skins as you could in 1.6 but like 1.6 there
are safeguards in place within the engine to prevent the skins from being too
different. In 1.6 the error you used to get when connecting to a server while
using skins that it didn't like was "server is enforcing model consistency" or
something like that and you were immediately kicked.

I wish they would include all the best 3rd party weapon skins in CS1.6 as
the originals look absolutely horrible compared to the custom ones.
The original weapon skins look particularly poor when lying on the ground.
Bloody awful in fact, compared to the custom ones.
