Wow...remarkable. I'm surprised it looks that good for a user-made project. Valve should hire these guys to work on Half-life 3!

Looks great! The guy said he's working on the other characters as well and they should be ready in the next few days.

I don't think Alyx looks like Alyx anymore, either does Mossman (who looks to have some serious drug issues). I mean I love the high res but they seem a bit off for me.

Nice stuff, much better than the original faces. I hate blury low-res crap. :D Now if someone would add some more polygons to the world levels and if Valve would finally release the HDR stuff, this game would start to be visually a first class game.

Thats my opinion of them. The quality is great, but the characters simply don't have the same looking they used to.

Blurry Low Res Crap?!?! The original Skins had some of the best textures then any other game models. Not even FarCry was comparable to it...

The world textures were and are pretty rough. The rocks, ground and what not. Very washed out and dx-7 level crap.

Funny thing is most of the game is dx-7 level textures, they just threw piles and piles and piles of shaders ontop of everything to give it a nice look.

You can't tie a texture resolution to a level of directx. They are two totally differnet things. I'm currently running this texture pack in DX7 mode and its a pretty big improvement (quality wise).

I agree though, object and ground textures need improvement more than the characters. Half Life 2 has some of the best textures and some of the worst textures I've seen. I would much rather see the worst textures picked out and improved rather than the already great character skins.

This may be a dumb question, but these skins are at a 2048x1024 resolution, right? You don't have to play the game at that res in order to reap the benefits?

Most definatly not. The high resolution just goes to show how much detail is put into them. You can play the game at whatever resoltion works best for you

Yes sir, thats what it looks like to me. HL2 has some nice textures but then you could always find things that just didnīt fit in and the face textures were one of them, not all, but some face textures simply sucked, especially the ones at start. So my props to the modders that try to make the game better, especially where it needed to get better. :thumbup:

My main complain on that game arenīt even the textures, but Iīm not getting started, donīt want to turn this into a hater/lover HL2 convo.

You can play the game @ 800x600 and still use these skins :D The skins are just very detailed, more so than the original faces. I agree with most people about Alyx though, after installing them, her face looks so plastic and fake, like she had some work done and lives in california. All the other skins looked awesome though. And there's more to come from what the modder says.
