Updating HL2 a bit.

I haven't played HL2 in maybe six years, but I recently got my old Steam account back and all the old games I had with that. First thing I played was Black Mesa. Great tribute to the original HL, that one. It made me curious whether anyone has tried to update the HL2 textures and objects. I checked out Steam Workshop, but frankly I am shocked at how quickly that Valve feature has turned into a complete mess. It was started.. what.. less then a year ago? I don't even know where to begin to look for interesting mods there. Old mods, new mods.. it's all mashed together. No proper categories for anything.

 

So instead I was hoping you guys may have come across some interesting things. Black Mesa was good, but I need to continue the journey now. Can't help myself.

That doesn't look half bad, except for the horrid actor reskins. Meh.. if this is the best the community was able to produce, I think I'll just stick with the original ones. Thanks for the link though, I appreciate the help. :)

The guy doing the reskins is waiting for the next version of the official skins to base the next HD versions... The original skins don't give him much to go on, and they take a LOT of work to do.

 

The configurator allows you to use the original skins though, and you can always download one of the earlier versions for the semi-HD versions of the official skins, and add them in to the new version of the mod. (that's what I've been doing)

Don't insult me. I have trained professionals to do that.

The biggest problem is that the characters (all of them) look like entirely different people. He didn't even TRY to make the characters look the same.

 

If you didn't know from the storyline, you could not tell at all that this is Judith Mossman.

Looks completely different.

"I don't trust a man that doesn't have something strange going on about him, cause that means he's hiding it from you. If a man's wearing his pants on his head or if he says his words backwards from time to time, you know it's all laid out there for you. But if he's friendly to strangers and keeps his home spick-and-span, more often than not he's done something even his own ma couldn't forgive." -No-bark Noonan

The only decent texture pack there is. It also takes out a couple of the loading screens...

OMG, why they all look so creepy? This is a bad taste in art, in my opinion... women look like aspiring, plastic porn stars and men like .... uncanny valley representation with feminine, big-ass eyes! :shock:

Environments look good! Maybe a person that is great in designing textures for trees and soil, should not design humans.... :lol:

The nice thing is that he includes a nice program that lets you easily change the NPC models... You merely have to add other models to get one that you might want.

 

The author had actually said a LONG time ago that he was waiting until Valve came out with HL3/EP3 and would be using the models from that for his base for the canon style HD models. Considering how long we've been waiting on HL3...
