Garry's Mod is a great, if novelty, mod . Allows you to play with the engine's physics system with ease amongst other things...

What is the high-res cinimatic mod? Is that just the high-resolution character texture pack? Also, I hear Antlion Troopers is good, and Leon's SP Map Pack. Outside of that and the ones mentioned, hmm, can't really think of any.

Although, none of these are really mods, they're just level packs pretty much. Seems like it's taking a really long time for some quality single-player mods to come out...you'd think that if a mod like They Hunger could be released within a year or HL1's release that we'd at least have SOMETHING for HL2 by now.

Is there a mod team out there that wants to add HDR to HL2, or did even Valve release an SDK or documentation how to add it?

the cinematic mod is the fakefactory hi res tex's, but with added orchestral sounds. i think its nicer so far, but i havent played through much.

i have played leons mod. i will check out antlion troopers.

and yeah, i would have thought there would be tons of mods for this and D3, considering the amount of fuss CS caused, showing there is a market for a good mod. - maybe they are all aiming higher this time, and are really going to impress us?

HL2 is now capable of rendering int10 (or whatever it is) HDR, tonemapping, and bloom effects. However, in order to take advantage of it, each map in HL2 must be reworked to take into account HDR light sources (also, apparently certain light sources, like point lights, do not work well with in this system).
