Enhanced AI Upscaled Eyes

A Skin Mod for Half-Life 2

Updates

Version 2 1y
  • Addition Upscaled eyes for Vortigaunts based on DX8/2004-release textures
  • Addition Custom lightwarp for softer lighting and richer color
  • Adjustment Unique shader parameters for every pair of eyes
  • Adjustment Tweaked ambient occlusion for added detail, color effects
Standalone download, V1 not needed. Likely final.

High-definition eye textures with improved shaders for all human NPCs.

Replaces all human (and Vortigaunt) eyes with high-definition recreations compiled from the results of a neural-net-based upscaling tool. Textures are adapted from those which originally shipped with the game in 2004 (now "DX8 mode"), so every character has unique right and left eyes.



Also included are updated shaders (Heavily modified in V2) originally introduced in TF2 and Left 4 Dead -- these were added in an engine update for Half-Life 2 but never properly implemented.



Thanks to that update, this mod should be compatible with all the Half-Life 2 games, as well as any Sourcemods based on them (so long as they are based on Source 2009 or later (Some users report visual bugs in MMod and Half-Life 2: Update -- your feedback is appreciated if you are a user of or experience issues in these titles so I can diagnose the problem)). Please enjoy, and let me know what you think in the comments below.

    I have an issue with vortigaunts' eyes in Episode Two. Not 100% sure if it's this mod, but almost. Randomly their eyes become the size of human eyeballs, with everything around it becoming transparent so that you can see right through its body. If you exit and reload the game it works again (not just loading a save, it seems I actually need to exit the game first), but it happens very frequently.

    I mean, I have never come across the "cross-eyed" problem what so ever, but for some reason at random parts of the game, the textures on some NPC's just turn white and idk why that is. Lucky, it can be temporarily fixed just by resetting the game but like....

    I don't want to do that all the time

    God day! Problem with npcs all went cross-eyed may be caused by changes in cfg folder in config.cfg, autoexec.cfg, etc. I am using MMod and I personally had this problem with cross-eyed npcs when I installed one of the kizuati's mods, I think it was Project Kizuarion [Redux Version]

    Found a pretty amusing bug when using this mod, most of the npcs all went cross-eyed. (I was using MMOD during all of this, so im not sure if thats the problem. The screenshots were also captured in standard steam JPG format so it might not be very clear.)

    (EDIT: Game was Episode 2, I have yet to test it in HL2 or Episode 1. Using V2)

    About time we got to HL2, i wonder if someone could give the World Textures a Upscale.

    Tho some eyes like Alyx's look a bit artificial (Welp it AI afterall) i've done them myself about a year ago. Tho my results are a bit different since i used textures from other mods.

    Very impressive work !  Nobody has done this before. Can you also include Vortigone eyes in next updates ? I think they big eyes also can be improved.
