Hrbls recently stopped updating the No Hats mod so I took over to prevent it from dying out.
hrbls thread: http://www.teamfortress.tv/16179/no-hats-mod
Original thread: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2041907

Latest version can be found here:
https://github.com/xJeebsx/No-Hats-Mod
Latest Version: 16-May-2017: Removed the Rainy Day cosmetics and the Snack's Summery Ultiduo tournament medals.

Moved it to a GitHub repository. MediaFire is behaving weird and won't allow me to upload the newest file. All future updates will be pushed to GitHub from now on.

Unfortunately this version doesn't fix Pyro's having no heads, Scouts having no feet, etc. so if that's something that bothers you then I recommend you download Springrolls Headsfeet version which fixes this issue.

To install simply navigate to: Steam\steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\custom\ and place the .vpk file there. After that just boot up TF2 and you should no longer have hats showing.

Enjoy your hatless TF2!

Note: If you see any hats in game with this mod on, feel free to tell me so I know what else has to be removed.

I have now officially updated the Headsfeet mod. Download it by following the link below. It will download a .zip file. Open that .zip file and extract the .vpk file to:
Steam\steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\custom\
I'll do my best to try to keep this mod updated along side the No Hats mod.

Yeah I was willing to do this as i posted in the original NoHats mod thread but Plenty of shit suddenly arrived and I ain't got the time. I hope you can keep this mod updated without much trouble.

That's a very bizarre issue you're having there. I re-downloaded the file that I uploaded and it worked perfectly fine.

Sorry if you get asked this all the time, but is there any way to give everybody back their default headgear? So when I use this mod, the Sniper, Engineer, Soldier and Scout all appear "bald", if you get what I mean. It's very depressing because the default hats which were a part of their original designs gave them so much character. Those default hats were an important part of those class designs - chosen by an artist who really knew what he/she was doing. I would love to see them again if possible.

It might be possible to replace everyone's hat with the default hat for that particular class. That's something I'll have a look into. Although I'm not entirely sure if the default hats contain any code since they're technically not an item in the game. They're just a part of the player model. I'll still see what I can find though.

Really do like this mod, however, it removes the festive lights on weapons. What files are doing this and how can I disable them? I also tried to edit them in notepad ++ but there is nothing to edit.

EDIT: Never mind all I had to do was extract the files out of the mod, replace the festive files with the original files, and turn that into a vpk file. Really simple ikr.

Although I'm not entirely sure if the default hats contain any code since they're technically not an item in the game. They're just a part of the player model. I'll still see what I can find though.

I got this to work around a year ago and it works basically as you said. Default hats have their own model in the files so if you decompile a hat file, replace the model with the default hat model (or any part of a characters body that can be turned on and off, like Scout's feet or Pyro's head) (this bit gets a bit fucky when multiple styles are concerned, where each style disables different body groups eg: Backwards Ballcap removes Scout's cap and headset independently of each other but FOR SOME FUCKING REASON you can just combine the two models for Scout's cap and his headset into one file in something like Blender and use this to replace the Backwards Ballcap's model), then recompile.

Place the new model in a .vpk like the normal No Hats Mod and Bob's your uncle. You don't even need to replace textures (once again, FOR SOME FUCKING REASON) because the game somehow know's what texture to use when you change ONLY THE MODEL file, EVEN if you combine 2 existing models into 1 model (like with Scout's headset and cap) the game will still correctly apply textures even though the new model doesn't even exist in the games files. I have no idea how it ever worked but it did, even on sv_pure 2 WITHOUT preloading.

Unfortunately it took multiple minutes to complete one hat because you can't just replace it with an empty file, and all LODs (usually around 3 of them) need to be replaced some hats had different styles so you really had to set aside an hour or 2 just to do like 10 to 20 hats. And I was doing this at the point when Valve was releasing like 20+ hats for EVERY holiday event, plus community events and comp medals and with the backlog of nearly 1000 hats I basically gave up because I didn't have the time.

I'm also hesitant about giving away detailed instructions because I'm pretty sure you don't have to replace hat models with default bodygroups, so you could replace people's hats with massive street lamps and see them over walls and shit in sv_pure 2 with no preloading, just using a regular .vpk, which would be a great way for Valve to finally tighten up on hat removal mods due to exploiting (like with animation replacements) and end what everyone else has slaved over for years, so I'd only tell someone who I know will only use this method to replace hats.

If I actually cared about hats I'd leave them on. Since I don't care about hats and don't want them being a massive distraction while I'm playing, I choose to play with this mod on. I'm sure most other people would also use it for the same reason.
