I still dont get why they dont use the pak system for updates. It looks like they have added some eye candy stuff, which is good, but whenever I see word patch I would assume it was a 'fix' for bad code.

It would also be good to have a better/seperate map system. They could have a map pack with around 50 maps in a few mb if they reference the existing textures. Then instead of having to decide or spend tons of time on one map which may be wasted time.. they could just watch what servers are playing certain maps to see whats popular.. then concentrate on the detail stuff after they know what people like :/

Thing is.. it's very simple to add anti-cheat.. but it couldnt be open source and needs a few of people to constantly maintain it.

The only people who would then be able to cheat are the ones who are clever enough to write the code and not distribute it.

They are clever enough to insert spam codes , smash stack exploits , backdoors and hacks of every kind in their aimbots .... they can insert also code to permit them knowing who's using their code.... and noone ( with some "really clever" exceptions ) will know that because the sourcecode is not available.

For sure the totality of the aimbot users are stupid enough to use those cheats without any cautions ( eg ... who's clever enough to monitor opened connections ? ) and most of the admin are stupid enough to not take care of their servers but then they will be surprised to discover that their servers were hacked.

True words Falkland, the SV Administrators should watch better for the connections and to 99,9% the protection ;)
