Imagine, a Hollywood producer got his hands on the game. The result would be similar to what the Cinematic Mod is: a graphics blockbuster, redesigned to the typical game to movie adaption with an orchestral soundtrack and beautiful people everywhere.

Report article RSS Feed CM is now non-public

This project has gone non-public. I'm really tired of the braindead comments about optional HD models. Shall all the whiners create something better. CM has become a just-for-fun project again.

This project has gone non-public. I'm really tired of the braindead comments about optional HD models. Shall all the whiners create something better.

CM has started as a just-for-fun project. It was never planned as a community project. Now its time to become a just-for-fun project again in order to preserve my nerves.

Have a nice day.

And about the optional HD models.... it's true, not all of them are that great. They could use a little work, atleast on their heads/faces... sure they're optional but all mods need feedback, even for optional stuff !

Oh and about that "Shall all the whiners create something better" part... that was just stupid. I mean, seriously, FEEDBACK. If they're saying that they don't look good, it's because it's most likely true. But hey, it's your mod, do what you want with it. But think about the fact you won't be able to share your work with the world.... some will like it some will not. But that's what a mod, a game or even a movie or a book have ! Fans and haters.

Yeah, i know, I'm too modmaker but if i read some comments that my work is someone dislike it i JUST IGNORE IT. If more peoples dislike mah work i will recreate it or make alternative skin/model/texture/particle.

So FAKEFACTORY don't leave you watchers.

This can't be for real... It just can't, I have just brought an alienware laptop with a decent enough graphic card to be able to play fake factory, and now you go private.

Best wishes, but isn't this a foolish step?
even if people (look in the comments not a single one hatin') didn't like your HD models, you were able to turn them off.

And what about the new Alyx model, the one which should look like the original just with a smoother feel and such, what about it?
I want to see the finished version of that model! It would be sweet.

Again best wishes on your mod.

Im kind of disappointed. Now when I finally have enough gigabytes to download the next version you decide to go private. Oh well, those people should have stopped whining because if they dont like it its not like they have to use the models.

"Here's a metaphor:

I'm selling lemonade, everyone is saying it's too sweet. I'm going to stop making lemonade because they don't like it.
Solution: Keep making lemonade but keep refining the recipe until they like it.

Ignoring constructive criticism is the wrong way to improve a mod. "

Thanks to eXeC64 to resume exactly my thought.

You don't deserve to create a mod if you keep to be stubborn about criticism.

And seriously, stop having a fantasm about Alyx every time too.

Through my comment, regarding the HD models, I never meant for this to happen. Though, I regret nothing.

I consider Fakefactory's decision on going private a coward's act to the request of the community for better character models. Nothing is perfect, not even your mod, but without some criticism and help from the community you will never be able to achieve something near perfect.

But perhaps it is better this way. You will be able to have fun working on your mod with a couple of people.

I hope you guys change your mind. This is a great modification!
At least keep working on it and do a final release. You don't have to post updates, specially when members keep giving you negative criticism.
Its ridiculous to keep tweaking your model just to appease the crowd. Some people will NEVER be happy!
So keep modding for your own personal satisfaction not for the modding community. If you ever decide to release it, I'll download it and play it.

Agreed, though no mod is perfect, every friend that I showed this mod to seemed to enjoy it three times as much as the Vanella HL2. Perhaps I am ignorant of where all of this hate for fakefactory came from. If it is a legitimate concern someone please replly to this with the reasons for it, otherwise I would consider this mod to be the best one out there for HL2 Singleplayer.

@ FakeFactory
sag mal das ist doch nicht dein ernst oder klar kann mir gut vorstellen das es ziemlich nervt wenn 5 Jahre harte Arbeit immer auf die HD Models reduziert werden wobei ich sie sehr gut finde also ich glaube nicht das es in deinem sinne war hier bei moddb dabei zu seien und dann den Hut zu werfen lass die doch schreiben was sie wollen du hast auf alle fälle eine große Fanbase es gibt eine menge Leute die deine Arbeit mögen und respektieren und wenn ich mir die comments so anschaue haben auch einige ihre Meinung bereits geändert nachdem sie die mod getestet hatten ich für meinen Fall weis deine Arbeit zu schätzen und werde mich dafür demnächst auch erkenntlich zeigen hoffe das du weitermachst und deine neue Version doch noch für alle online stellst

Ehrlich gesagt war ich da einfach zu faul, aber für dich werde ich das natürlich in Zukunft tun, wobei ich glaube das du sehr gut verstehst was ich meine.
Schreibst du auch immer und überall mit (. & ,) wenn du online bist? Zudem wenn du andere Leute wegen ihrer Rechtschreibung rügst sollte bei dir alles tip - top seien.
Also wenn ich mir das so anschaue haben sich da auch ein paar Fehler eingeschlichen.

Lass die doch schreiben was sie wollen du hast auf alle fälle eine große Fanbase, es gibt eine menge Leute die deine Arbeit mögen und respektieren.
Wenn ich mir die comments so anschaue haben einige ihre Meinung bereits geändert nachdem sie die mod getestet hatten.
Ich für meinen Fall weis deine Arbeit zu schätzen und werde mich dafür demnächst auch erkenntlich zeigen.

War mir nicht klar das man das nicht darf, weil Half-Life der Heilige Gral ist den man nicht verändert.
Sind auch irgendwie immer die selben die hier meckern.
Könnte natürlich auch Englisch schreiben, aber so gehe ich wenigstens nicht die gefahr ein so viele negative votes zu bekommen.
Denn es kommt mir so vor als wenn hier einige darum bemüht sind alle positiven comments zu deiner mod negativ zu bewerten.
