Maestro Fénix's Alien Controller

A Skin Mod for Half-Life

Finally an alternative to Sproily and DiamonD's Controller

Maestro Fénix's Alien Controller

I was disappointed that after all these years only Sproily and DiamonD did a new model, but I'm not a fan of it ( because not only due the noise and the orange tone that have their textures, but also because it has zero detail at the brain), until BMS did their own ( and then Human Error did as well, but lets gonna say...is too different ).

So, I just took the original model, raised the polys, did new UV maps, made bigger the textures with Waifu2x ( such blessed tool ) and rolled all of them into three-four textures. Also added eyes and made the prong part of the brain to glow ( although in vanilla HL this effect will be affected due the environment effect ).

The only negative aspect is that due GoldSource not tolerating multiple vertex per bone when rigging, there are times where it may look bad ( mostly the dead animation, but it may happen in between frames ).

Feel free to use this on your own mods / packs or even to further improve it, just credit me.

An skilled 2D artist would take advantage of the new UV maps to make fully new textures of it, a thing that sadly I have not yet the skill to pull it off with professional results...

    Um... I mean it's not bad but I've got some criticisms

    Pros:
    - The optimized UVS look better and will load faster since the game has less texture maps to load
    - The resized texture looks much smoother and more high quality
    - for the most part the turbosmooth worked pretty well

    Cons:
    - The eyes look kind of like they're floating above the texture. Maybe if they were actually modelled into the mesh? instead of being separate spheres
    - The eyes would probably look better if they were actually textured and UV'ed
    - The thumbs look stubby, which is probably a side effect of the Turbo smooth
    - The smoothing on the loin cloth looks... bad. It would probably make more sense to model this part rather than trying to smooth it out, that way it would look more sharp and well defined rather than scrunched up
