Hello everyone! Today, it's time for another recreation of the very early Half-Life 2 beta/leak/rtb stuff. There are many "beta replacement packs"(including a few stillborn projects on moddb who want(ed) to create the "original beta story") out there that promise the ultimate beta atmosphere, but they are just skins and character, prop or weapon models, maybe a few sounds too, but there is nothing (stable) out there that gives you this "early,-green,-polluted-and-depressing feeling". So I made this replacement pack: The skies are now green and gritty, the trees are dead now, the fallen leaves have been replaced with trash and the ivy, cattails and grass is gone. The coast is now a lifeless wasteland, similar to the very short sequence in the broken teleporter. Also to mention: The pigeons, seagulls and their sounds have been removed too. In other words, I made a attempt to create a lifeless and gasmask-friendly atmosphere. There will be a future update that will most likely include retextures of the buildings, to give them an authentic Tim Burton's batman/ City of the lost children appearance, aswell as more industrial and abandoned sound replacements. The skies are not HDR.
FF97, i very like your skins. You are a very talented modeller, and i see you like BETA stuff so, can you maybe try to make JetSki? That would been awesome! Or how about replacing the citadel model to an early one?
The jetski is useless, it doesn't make sense, because it is just usable in water, rather than the airboat. To the Citadel: I made an early citadel, but it is without envmap/phong, because it looks always white/yellowish for some odd reason.
