Better foliage for Half-Life 2 - Beta 1.1 is now available for download.

What is included:

- Trees for Half-Life 2
- Background trees for Half-Life 2
- Ground leaves texture
- Reeds
- Grass for Half-Life 2
- Bush

How to install:

- Extract folder with mod from archive and put it in your Half-Life 2 custom folder.
- If you use AI Upscaled Half-Life 2 mod or another texture mod or mod replacing tree models in the game, then replace it with files from my mod.

Example: D:\Games\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life 2\hl2\custom\Better Foliage HL2

I highly recommend using my mod with AI Upscaled Half-Life 2 mod.

Beta 1: 20d Addition Improvement Adjustment Overhaul
Games of the Half-Life 2 series have a very large fan base and are still popular, especially now, after the announcement of Half-Life: Alyx. However, there are not so many graphic mods for this series of games, especially mods related to vegetation in the game. I never liked the default vegetation in Half-Life 2, compared to everything else in the game, it looks really awful, sorry. Therefore, I decided to surf the entire Internet and find at least something sane, and then put together in one mod. Unfortunately, I do not have 3D modeling skills, only very superficial knowledge of texturing, otherwise I would try to make this pack even better.

Current Progress:
- Trees for Half-Life 2 - Done
- Background trees for Half-Life 2 - Done
- Background trees for Episode One - In process
- Background trees for Episode Two - Scheduled
- Ground leaves texture - Done
- Reeds - Done
- Grass for Half-Life 2 and Episode One - Done
- Grass for Episode Two - Scheduled
- Ivy texture - On hold
- Bushes - In process
- More texture variants for trees, grass, reeds and other vegetation in game - Scheduled
- New ground textures - Scheduled

    I'm sorry if this isn't really related to the mod itself but what's your "mod" improving your bloom effect? Your MMod looks much better than usual and i'd really love to have my game being close to this, and if it isn't a mod than what is it?
    The box ain't empty, folks

    Very little progress. A new bush for the game, not exactly how I would like it to look, but, as it seems to me, it is better than the original.

    Всё круто, особенно в каналах, но деревья выглядят так, как будто они пришли из сказочного леса, особенно эти огромные корни, немножко не соотносятся с окружением игры. Можно достать деревья из CS:GO, там довольно хорошие деревья
