Don't you think the Vortigaunts from HL2 & Episode 1's release versions were so much better? TBH, I don't, but whether I think they're better or not, they're something that I want to see preserved and that I want people to have the option to fully utilize, and that's why I did this port in about 30 minutes a few days ago, then stared at it for a while, then made some LODs for Uriah, then released it today.
Because of the way the blue vortigaunt effect differs between Episode One and Episode Two, there are two VPKs in the archive. They're already in their proper folders, so you can just extract the archive to your "steamapps\common\Half-Life 2\" folder and merge them. For Half-Life 2 Update, HL2 or EP1 alone, only extract the "hl2" folder's contents.
It'd be really cool to see this texture remapped to the newer higher poly Vortigaunt model. I actually really like the newer Vorts. They're kind of cute. But I also like how creepy this texture looks, and it'd be nice to give it a more modern update.
Looks alot similar to the Alyx vorts, I like it. Although, I think I'm just gonna stick with Brain Dead's vortiguant because I never really got used to the HL2 style of vorts, they just always looked off to me. Especially with their voices after HL2, they just never sounded good. I preferred the more higher pitched voices. Either way, good mod, and preserving the history of the series is highly commendable. :)
