    I think it's a plugin but with enough digging around this should be possible through hammer

    The text in the Digital Directive missions are handled through a plugin that is defined in the mission .pop file. Sending messages in the chat isn't really possible or feasible by just using Hammer. Use game_text or game_text_tf as a replacement.

    You can send messages in chat through point_servercommand but it is generally frowned upon. We had some bhop maps that did it to say the name of the author and it would spam the irc
