"If you're like me and are one of the few people who actually like the HD Modelpacks but still want to retain some of the aesthetic of the original game, this mod's for you!"For quite a while now I've almost exclusively played Half-Life 1, Opposing Force, and Blue-Shift with custom model packs made with this concept in mind, done by combining my favorite elements from both the LD & HD models and even a few mods off of this very site with pretty good results.
Originally: This was only for my own personal use, but not long ago I figured I'd share this little project so other people can enjoy my "Half-Life Special Blend" if they're interested in it.
Overall I'd say I'm mostly finished with this idea, but in true VALVe fashion/tradition, I'm only going to release them when I feel like they're ready for the public. There are still a *few* things left to do, I suppose.
Until then, here's a quick little "teaser": The reskin of the Hivehand I threw together to give it the original's color scheme. Enjoy everyone!
*This reskin works in HL1, both expansions, and most mods.
