you need 10.0 base installed. 10.10 is just add on updates.

There's no reason NOT to play it! the game is exactly the same, just everything LOOKS better!

And for those asking, no CM6 Alyx isn't in it BUT! There is a new high res take on Valve's model that is OUTSTANDING. first Alyx since CM6 that I've been truly happy with.

There are also many new high res civilian models which are also VERY good.

What I DONT like are the new HD combine models. They look nothing like the original combine and I would have preferred the HD valve models he had for CM10 base mod. Oh well. A minor complaint and another "must have" specifically (for me) to fix the twin alyx in the prison where she falls out of the roof vent in the computer control room at nova prospekt.

There are updated HQ models that you can use if you choose to do so.

Do you have pics of the new optional Alyx? Also are the other models offered to look what they looked like in CM4 - ie does Alyx's father still look like a model pursing his lips?

That's what I found when looking for revised Alyx - looks absolutely nothing like her.

Her head looks enormous in those pics.

Just for the first time played this mod (10.02). Had been thinking about it for awhile but never got around to it until now. You can download multiple file links from RapidShare or use the one link to download it all at once using BitTorrent. No way in hell was I going to mess with RapidShare. Installed BitTorrent and downloaded it, (like 9.5 gigs).

Installed the mod with no problems. Used the "Character Pimper" to set the models. Choose all the new ones. I haven't played HalfLife for a long time, I have no loyality to it. Figured I'd try all the new stuff to change the game as much as the mod would allow so maybe I'd play it again.

Played the game a couple of hours now. I must say this mod makes the game look pretty damn good. I've heard all this crap talk trashing this mod for the models. I couldn't disagree with this more. To me, ALL the new models look way better than the originals, especially Alyx.

IMO, this mod has given this game a breath of fresh air and improved atmosphere. Glad I finally got around to trying it. My hats off to Fake Factory for all the work he's poured into this project and putting it out there for all to enjoy free. I also like his attitude which is, "I'm making this the way I want and if you don't like it, I don't care". All in all, a pretty impressive piece of work.

Dunno what Black Mesa is going to be like (when it gets here) but Fake Factory has set a pretty high mark.

Use the HD hybrid valve model from the pimper... sooo much better than the Adriana Lima model. these are degraded JPEG's the screenshot capture takes so you know they look better in game :/



Oh dig the floating printer a couple shots down hahaha












Edit: and for those of you still debating if this is worth it or not, it is.. do it.. this mod's epicness is only going to be eclipsed by black mesa source, whenever it's released and possibly EP3 but even then, FF will mod that when it's out and probably go back and re-mod all the previous episodes with every source engine tweak valve throws into EP3. I reeeeally hope we get EP3 this year.

+1 to EP3 this year.

Haven't heard didly about it. It's almost as if Valve is just hoping people forget about this game. I know they're wanting to go a different direction, but they just cannot ditch HL. That is the game that made them as a company. They could be afraid of disappointing everybody. HL was popular, it's expansions popular, HL2 was popular, EP1 more so, and EP 2 even more so- maybe they're fearing EP3 will be a failure and their luck will run out.

All I know is I want EP3 NAO!!!
