High quality combine

A Skin Mod for Half-Life 2

Higher quality textures for the combine soldier/ shotgunner/ prison guard and combine elite. I also included a zombine retexture so that it wouldn't look out of place.

The textures are (2048x2048 resolution) double that of the vanilla ones. I have replaced or enhanced the textures via photoshop.

Installation instructions in the download.

EDIT: Due to a request I have retextured the Soldier_stripped model, I took some liberties with it so if you don't want it just delete the "soldier_stripped" folder.
I also added optional textures that better fit Episode 2. 

EDIT 2: You can use these skins however you want, no need to ask me since I'll probably take forever to respond. :)

Enjoy.

    My only gripe is I think that the Zombine doesn't look bloody enough like the original. You could make an extra file for a more bloody  version for those who want it.

    Gotta say, these look fantastic, though I do have a few gripes with these stylistically.

    I don't really like how their armor looks like traditional kevlar and metal. If you look closely their vests have this subtle cell-like structure, where instead of it having small depressions in the surface like a fabric, it has small protrusions in the surface, almost like styrofoam. The armor parts probably would look better if you went for a less traditional metal texture and more of a polymer kind of feel.

    That's just my opinion though. Regardless of how I feel about these stylistically, they're still incredible. Great work!

    Nice. These textures are something between the original Half-Life 2 and FakeFactory mod.

    Great job but I have a little request. Could you also please enhance texture for half naked soldiers when we see them during their transition phase inside of the citadel?

    Holy fucking shit, this is absolutely fantastic!

    You have no idea how amazing it feels to finally see a high quality mod that improves the Combine Soldiers without changing the original style and look of the Combine Soldiers and/or add a bunch of stuff to them that makes them look off. I have waited for a mod like this for years!

    These are even better then the original Combine Soldiers! I'm using this mod every time i play Half-Life 2, Gmod and every single source mod for Half-Life 2 now. This is definitely a must-have mod for Half-Life 2!

    This puts Fakefactory's soldiers to shame. The only thing you can say is bad about this is how it makes everything else look bad.
