VS Saxton Hale: VScript 23w18b

From the original creator of VSH

This is a VScript Remake of VS Saxton Hale Mode. Unlike Plugin-VSH, you can pack the VScript Remake into your map, therefore such a map can be installed with ease on variety servers, uploaded to the Workshop, and potentially even added to TF2 officially. No extra plugins or resources required.

While the current version is production-ready, we're still planning to release bugfixes and improvements down the line. Halloween-related stuff is considered, but not 100% confirmed yet.
Visit this page later for future updates.

  • Yakibomb - give_tf_weapon script (used for Hale's first-person hands model).

Please read the extensive manual.​

This gamemode requires a few very specific steps to make work on your map.
