    (I was inspired by the KGB thread :p)

    I for one, do not use skins, I have used them a few times, but I got bored of them and removed them a few minutes later.

    I've yet to see one skin that looks like it would be a good replacement for one of Valve's skins.

    I'm with you, that is why I replace them so fast.

    I don't use skins, basically because 95% of them are a rip off from original textures.

    Would be nice if people made some real skins, I mean modelling + texturing new characters or weapons.

    If someone made a female version of all the characters, that would be interesting.

    (I know there's a female scout, but she looks too manly :/)

    I use two skins.

    One to make the scout's handwraps black.

    Another to make the pistol a darker gray (closer to black).

    I have little interest in skins, but these two were well done and actually made the game look better instead of converting it to Aperture Science vs Black Mesa or something stupid and gaudy.
