Default Panoramic Shots from Cinematic Mod 9.51 *huge pics alert*

Downloaded cinematic mod 9 base, 9.5, the HD addon and 9.51 update (seriously.. is that ALL?)

Anyways, all I can say is WOW. the environment is absolutely stunning. The texture work is literally better than any game I've played to date.

World detail in general as far as polygon details and stuff like that are showing their age but that's just how they were designed years and years ago by valve. The texture work, new lighting and stuff definately breathe new life into the game.

I've started taking panoramic shots (or rather taking several shots panning across the scene and using autostitch software to stitch them together and then adobe lightroom to try and hide the ugly black edges that the auto stitch software adds


So far I'm to Vance's lab. the scene when you destroy the helicopter was just amazing. anwyays, enough chit chat. I'll keep this thread updated as I progress through the game.

I've been so wanting to download this mod, but there is no place other than fileplanet to download it. There are few places outside of fileplanet, but the hosts are rapidshare or torrents.

The V10 based on the... 'original' (though, not really), still looks like a mad scientists failed attempt to cross a monkey with an alien.

Great shots there FastRedPonyCar, really. And not one stupid Alyx picture in sight, which is a massive plus. Do more!

Thanks. I'm using the model V14 from the pimper in most/if not all the levels. To his credit, mossman looks phenomenal. I'm not crazy about the sunken in - haven't had enough sleep - eyes on all but the original untouched Alyx model.
