    I made a hat model, it's 1 small polygon with a transparent texture. It's beautiful.

    Then I edited the items_game.txt file to replace all the hats in the game with my new hat. The end result is a drastic drop in hat visibility in the game.

    Latest Version:
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1281220/nohats/nohats_v7.zip

    * If the server allows custom hat models: The sniper, scout, soldier and engineer will equip their default hats. And all other hats are hidden.
    * If the server doesn't allow custom hat models: All hats are hidden and the sniper, scout, soldier and engineer will be hatless.

    Also! For some reason it won't remove the hat you are wearing, so watching yourself in thirdperson (taunt, humiliation) will still show a hat.

    Keep in mind that I made this for myself and I take no responsibility for any form of damage or problems that may arise from adding these models to the game.
    It will probably break in the next update (when valve themselves make a update to items_game.txt).


    Q: Why does this exist?
    A: Because It's getting a bit too much for me. I want a "display hats" toggle option in the game, but until that gets added... this is the next best way.

    Wow, this was much more efficient than my method.

    Make a .vmt for every hat in the game, and then have it use "$nodraw" "1"

    Does this work with sv_pure 2?

    edit: nope. Removes particle effects though. And crashes TF2 when I open the loadout (when on a pure server).

    hm, that's strange, because I just did some tests on the tf2m server with "sv_pure 2" (I had to rewrite the .cfg on the server itself because it kept reverting it to sv_pure 1 when I changed map). And I didn't have any problems, the hats were gone too.

    Also, I fixed the headless pyro once and for all now. I hope. Last time I made the mistake to mix up the pyromancer mask and the Killing floor mask in the textfile :S

    The whole point of having hats is to be vain. I'm not sure too many people will complain about this.

    I'm guessing this will only increase FPS in the sense that it won't be drawing any hats, but it will still load them all anyway?

    Also, USING <3

    Updated to v2!

    * If the server allows custom hat models: The sniper, scout, soldier and engineer will equip their default hats. And all other hats are hidden.
    * If the server doesn't allow custom hat models: All hats are hidden and the sniper, scout, soldier and engineer will be hatless.
