Is that supoose to be whats her name? Why does she look full on nig?
that actually doesn't look too bad, although don't those big meshes change the level dramatically?
He could have had it, like, broken and half submerged out in the water or something
I sure like my indestructible planes and rebar concrete riverbed
Hey Gordon what kind of Alyx mod do you want?
The best way I can describe this is as if an alien who did not know what a human looked like tried to model one just from description alone.
It doesn't look like it's made by someone who understands what humans look like.
The HL2 Cinematic Mod is the funniest thing in the lore of the series. Funnier than HL3 never coming out.
The idea is so good. Better sound effects, denser levels, improve the graphics. Intensify what's already there. Make the game pop! I get it.
But the character model changes.. I really, honestly wonder if the creator is on crack or obsessed with airbrushed, plasticy models. It's a clear example of letting his fetishes and neurosis get the better of him. They look horrible, unrealistic, and disgusting out of place in the Source engine. Dude is like the Michael Bay of modders.. has this 14 year old boy idea of what people should look like.
What a dumb fuck. Made his mod a huge fucking joke.
The first editions of the mod weren't terrible. Higher res stuff, nothing crazy.
Then the model changes came. Different outfits for Alyx.
Then replacements for Alyx.
Then ferns. And uguu-Breen.
There was a point where they should've stopped but they just sped by it and held down the accelerator.
Looks almost like a kydex holster.
Thankfully he made it really customizable. Default character models makes it more bearable and lots of areas look better despite the BRIDGES and FERNS.
I didn't like the music though. I dunno if it was changeable or not.
This model is 100% legit, taken straight off the website, completely unaltered by me.
you don't have to replace any of the NPCs, you can just get the mod for the high resolution & post processing and all of that. aside from ferns and the NPC changes that are hysterically bad, the cinematic mod really does make the game look better than its 2004 iteration, and its obvious that the person who first designed it put a lot of care into his work.
The problem, though, is that he clearly intends for the models to be left in as a "full package" deal. Even on his website, he prominently advertises the new models. They are clearly--in his malformed eyes--an upgrade, and are now the poster children for the mod itself.
Since they are so universally despised, the respect the mod receives as a whole is greatly diminished, to the point of outright hatred and ridicule with no wish to see any redeeming qualities. He dug his grave, now he has to lie in it. Them being optional doesn't undue how huge a travesty they are. Their mere existence is a blight.
>tfw you found the guy who made this mod is a 45 years old german
I always wonder if all the modders of those stupid bimbo mods for Bethesda games are arround the same age
Him & those Bethesda modders, who make the ultra-glossy, huge-breasted, bimbo freak models are definitely the same breed of invalid. Anyone who thinks they look good, or even worse, makes them, are essentially confirmed to be retarded on some deep and unsalvageable level.
At least this still has her regular face. The low-cut shirt and navel are just a perverted, unrealistic choice, as opposed to the deformed monsters the mod generally provides.
What is the deal with Source and shoulders? Why they look so fucked all the damn time?
About 3-4 years ago I bumped into a strange but friendly man in CEX. I was checking out some PC games with a
girland this old man with a white beard comes up to me and recommends getting one of the Stalker games. I told him that I had heard good things about them. A long-ass conversation about games ensues, but he had asked me if I'd played Oblivion. I told him I had and that I enjoyed it a lot, especially modding it. Turns out, he was a well recognised modder in the community, but unfortunately I can't remember the name(s) of the mods he had worked on. He had a lot of negative things to say about certain members of the community which meant nothing to me. If I had to describe the man, imagine a homeless father Christmas. He was carrying a tonne of miscellaneous objects in a transparent bag over his shoulder. His demeanour was friendly, but also very intimidating. He looked around late forties or fifties.
TL;DR Modders are strange but interesting people.
how did the plane crash without touching the bridge?
