    I have a question what exactly means:
    Can I get VAC-banned, if I install this pack or what Problems can I get?

    Yes, you can get VAC banned and all games you have purchased will be deleted from your Steam acount. You also can get infected with AIDS by using the resource pack so be carefull.




    Basicly, since it does slightly modifie some materials, it might cause the same issues you have with some client mods when the game forces the default materials on a sv_pure 1 server.
    However I didn't notice anything. I remember that once the no-entry sign in enemy spawn rooms doesn't fade anymore on distance when the pack is installed, but this was fixed iirc.
    So it's just a disclaimer that in future updates a few textures may appear incorrectly on sv_pure servers, but it's nothing game breaking.

    Pretty sure if the ABS pack came with a risk of you being VAC banned everyone would've stopped using it long ago :p

    I am sorry if I am prolonging this thread more than it needs to be, but... really?

    It's only one example, but the author of Hightower used it: http://tf2maps.net/posts/320208/

    "pure" in this case is referring to sv_pure.
