Goal of the Mod : To make a mod that improves the game visually while Maintaining the Vanilla game's Art Style And look, and to make it
As Lore Friendly as possible by using assets from different mods and source games (Counter Strike Source, Day Of Defeat, Left 4 Dead 2, 1187
Underhell, and Finally Black Mesa Source) this mod won't contain :Sexualized alyx, Non Vanilla Game guns (However Changes the Animations
And high def textures), F.E.A.R Replica Soldiers, No combine voice changes, No Edited Vanilla guns (Spas 12 buttstock, Laser sighted Mp7,
44 magnum Scope (etc.) and finally no PRODUCT PLACEMENT (NO COCA COLA SIGNS).
(Keep in mind the screenshots are taken with Sweetfx enabled, i highly recommend using ICBINE From Skyrim for the Sweetfx preset, just download sweetfx base first then replace it with ICBINE then put all the files in the "bin" folder in your directory)
Im currently on the finalization of the mod however i had one HUGE setback.....
The File is 10 GBS ,
ITS literally as big as HL2 AND ITS EPISODES AND NOW IM TRYING TO COMPRESS THE MOD to a much more managable state, but i did fix several bugs i found in EP 1 (black rubble , gliched posters and such) , i also added a NEW gravity gun retexture (by Blueflytrap) it took me about 2 months trying to fix the textures without the need for source SDK and relying solely on console commands like: mat_texture_list or mat_crosshair as i had no prior knowledge on the source engine before modding the fuck out of Half life 2 and as such its delayed but its STILL COMING

(Keep in mind you can only use this if you have an official copy otherwise put all the contents of the mod in your directory of half life 2 (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life 2\hl2)
