#1 TF2 update for 12/1/22 (12/2/22 UTC) in TF2 General Discussion

Via the Steam Community:

Valve- Implemented VScript
- VScript allows mappers to embed script code (Squirrel3) into maps. This system is already being used for L4D2 and CS:GO maps.
- Interface with entities and the world like regular Hammer logic
- Simplify things that were previously incredibly complicated/tedious in Hammer logic
- Interact with and control bots, bosses, player attributes, entities, and game state closely, allowing for enhanced, modified or entirely custom game modes
- React to game events and change the outcome of certain things, such as damage calculations

- More technical info about VScript for Team Fortress 2 is available on the Valve Developer Community
- https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/VScript
- https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/List_of_TF2_Script_Functions

- Added the ability to change the skybox dynamically using the skybox_changer entity or SetSkyboxTexture
- Added support for custom MvM upgrade files packed into the map
- Added point_worldtext, an entity that can show text dynamically, with support for multiple SDF (signed distance field) fonts, multiple colors and a rainbow mode
- Exposed several movement related ConVars
- Implemented support for func_monitor and cameras
- Implemented logic_eventlistener for listening to game events from Hammer logic
- Added the ability to pass parameters and delay to MvM populator actions
- Improved compile time with VRAD
- Special thanks to Jakub and everyone on the GitHub VScript Mega Issue for testing, providing feedback, and submitting requests

#1 CS:GO update for 11/15/22 (11/16/22 UTC, 1.38.4.7) in CSGO General Discussion

Via the CS:GO blog:

Valve[RIO MAJOR]
– Rio 2022 Champions Autograph Capsules are now available for purchase. 50% of the proceeds go to the participating players and organizations.

[MISC]
– Game state integration JSON now specifies SteamID of player planting or defusing the bomb as string to avoid numeric truncation in consumer scripts (thanks PhilipBjorkebro)

Rumor has it:

- The Rio 2022 Champions Autograph Capsule is available for US$1/CA$1.35 and contains stickers from the winners of IEM Rio 2022, Outsiders (you can also view these in an album):

- FL1T (Champion) (Glitter, Holo, Gold)
- n0rb3r7 (Champion) (Glitter, Holo, Gold)
- Jame (Champion) (Glitter, Holo, Gold)
- qikert (Champion) (Glitter, Holo, Gold)
- fame (Champion) (Glitter, Holo, Gold)

- If there's a specific Champion sticker you have your eye on, CS:GO Stash has in-game inspection and Steam Community Market links for the whole collection of them

- In-game trophies for both the Champions and the Quarter-/Semi-/Finalists have new inscriptions for IEM Rio 2022 (referred to as ESL Rio 2022; PGL Antwerp 2022 trophies used for demonstration as Rio trophies have not yet been distributed to pro player inventories)

- The keen-eyed among you will spot a couple of problems with these trophies:
- The last line containing all the Rio names will be obscured by the description (but here's the Champion trophy's texture and here's the QF/SF/Finalist trophy's texture so you can look up close)
- The Quarter-Finalist/Semi-Finalist/Finalist Trophy's label texture that should be applied to the base of the trophy (like with the Champion trophy) has been and is still missing in action from its model since after PGL Stockholm 2021
- Most importantly: we are out of room again on the trophies as had happened after StarLadder Berlin 2019. This will be a problem next year after BLAST.tv Paris 2023 and future majors

- Lastly, there is a round of localization file updates which are made possible with the contributions of Translators Like You - Thank You

- Reminder: with the end of IEM Rio 2022, you now have exactly one month to choose what you think were the best matches by way of your Souvenir Tokens. Unused tokens will expire on December 15th
