MODDING PSA: YouTube user "zeNate" has composed dozens of Half-Life inspired tracks that are free to use. These tracks really slap and do an unbelievable job at replicating the vibes of HL1, HL2, and particularly the HL2 episodes. Want custom music for your mod, but don't have the resources for a polished OST? Check out zeNates work!

I adore and massively appreciate all the fans that have given their time and effort to creating content for the community. The HL2 Remade Assets teams has done some AMAZING work. With that said, I find it an incredible missed opportunity that the remade HL2 food rations packet does not match the colors & material of the existing HL:A food rations, so that they could all fit together as a cohesive set. Sure, the remade HL2 rations packet is using colors closer to what they were in HL2, however, HL:A has already established the hi-res Source 2 precedent with their assets, so I think any remade HL2 assets need to fit into this new standard. This is my opinion, but I hope these considerations are helpful for future modders and asset makers. Details matter.

XBLAH's "Combine Supermax" from Test Tube #18 - Escapeville has some of the best Combine environments I've seen in a while. Great colors and details. Most community-made content struggles with Combine architecture and facilities, but XBLAH really nailed it.

When did the alien empire get the name "the Combine?" Did anyone else notice that in the E3 2003 demonstration, when presenting the strider map, the presenter says, "In this last sequence, You'll get a look at the citadel at the center of the alien combine. THE COMBINE IS A FORTRESS THAT IS SLOWLY EATING ITS WAY THROUGH THE REST OF CITY 17" ? Therefore, relatively late in development, the combine was not the name of the empire itself, but basically the name of the combine smart barrier that chews up the city?
