This is a improved look for the half life source nihlanth. This one was never improved in the past, so it`s time to do so. It has been updated with normal maps and better textures, but also, I decided to make a totally new set of enhanced sounds and dialogues for nihilanth, and also some visual effects improvements and 2 songs, one done by me. This way, you`ll have a very diferent experience when fighting nihilanth :P You should check out this vid I thnik I`ll release all improvements separatedly, maybe, that will be a lot easier. So expect more improvements like these ;) I hope you like this improved nihilanth. In source is a bit more challenging. I used my voice for dialogues, Lol, but I made a good effect so it sounds pretty badass ;) I`m awaiting for BMS to come out, but still they`re not done, so let`s play HL:S XD

    Epic texture, but the sounds really make the submission perfect. I like how it's in different languages, like the Nilhilanth never seen humans before, and is trying his hardest to communicate in their language.

    Overall, 10/10

    Long assessment



    Man, this is how an assessment should be, a complete review :D

    thx for the feedback.

    btw, I made the voices like that, not all in english, to recreate more like an alien language

    oh ok. but I really think its much better english you know.. so if you want to keep it in different language, then let it. I shall not judge you anymore for it not being english.

    9.2/10

    [Detail]
    I like it how you made the detail. It looks really good and more realistic, you also added the right normal maps that fits it well. You also managed to improve the texture's detail. The only thing i didn't like that some parts are blurry, maybe making them more sharper so it looks better.


    [Sound]
    I like how made that new badass nihilanth sounds, it waaaayy more better than before and more different. The only thing I didn't like about it is that it was in different language, maybe make it english so people would understand what nihilanth was saying like before. The music really fits well and is really clear and not grainy. I don't have a problem with the music but next time make it english.


    [Texture]
    I like it how you tweaked the textures, less blurry, more detailed, better shadows, etc. Its like you made a better and more badass nihilanth, but it really looks like the default one. Maybe make the texture more unique or different. The texture is overall good but somehow theres something missing, its phong. You can find a tut how to add phong here by Teh snake. If this has phong, I might be blind or I really didn't much notice it.

    [Improvements]
    Add phong
    Make speech english (or not)
    Make it less blurry
    Make it more unique/different

    9.2/10
