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.

I highly recommend using my mod with AI Upscaled Half-Life 2 mod and Half-Life 2: Episode One 4X AI Textures.

Games of the Half-Life 2 series have a very large fan base and are still popular, especially now, after the announcement and release of Half-Life: Alyx. However, there are not so many graphic mods for this series of games, especially mods related to vegetation in games. I never liked default vegetation in Half-Life 2 and episodes, compared to everything else in gamea, 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.
