Do custom skins cause more lag when online. If so why?

They do when they first get on the server. Unless the serverhas already downloaded it before. As for all the clients that have seen it before they will for a second or so. It eats up band with. Lets say 10 guys join a game all with different custom skins. Now not only are you sending imformation back and forth to each other about your flight and amo usage and all you are sending paint jobs aswell. But once everyone recievs each others paints it should smooth out.

Now that said The dedicated server thing thats out. It allows the transphere of Skins much faster than the old way of hosting. It should not be a major problem on this type of game.

After eating an entire bull, a mountain
lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a
hunter came along and shot him...
The moral: when you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.
