Greetings everyone. I'm here today to show you what I've been making past few days.
For some reason internet connection became worse for a week now, I can't upload many images.
I've modeled, more like mapped, few dozen props that I will be using in the mod. It is of course based off of brushwork found in the old 2001 maps and some are directly taken from it. I could've used already existing hl2 or hl2 leak props but because this mod is aiming to create aesthetics of 2001, I gone on my way to create them. This would be achieved easier with just normal brushes but since source bakes lightings in them, it will look odd in certain places.
No other mod as I could remember uses these low-poly props to detail their maps, usually they use more higher, up-to-hl2-standard models. I reckon this will make my mod more distinct from other mods visually further.
There is a possibility I will make these models public assets free to use (with credits).
