Here are the very first screenshots of the new Alyx model, that will include in the upcoming update version of FakeFactor´s Cinematic Mod with Source Engine 2009 support.
... most of these mods try to turn Alyx into some kind of cheap sad sexbimbo, whereas the original design of the character is great as it is!
I don't see how this new model looks like a "cheap sad sexbimbo". :/
I think she looks great, along with the darker skin complexion and full lips.
She's quite a change from Alyx, who is the original beauty, but why all the hate, guys?
@Yi-Long: What makes her look like a sex-bimbo?
Original design is perfect but I like to look at bigger boobs (not huge) when playing. Sorry, I know they're virtual but nice full boobs always look good IMO.
I agree with TruEve and Bigpappy.
I really don't see what makes her look like a bimbo...
This model is attractive, but that doesn't make her a whore. They don't even show anything that's revealing...
I like the original design the best though.
Well, it's better than the previous fakefactory Alyx models( aka Taiwanese-silicone-prostitute- transexual-Alyx). So props for that. But I still don't see the point these overhauls, since Valve's original cannot be improved on.
Looks like a porn actress with augmented lips and a pound of makeup in her face. Yuck, yuck, yuck.
She looks like she wants to say; "You want sucky sucky?"
No one else picked up that the original Alyx fit the world? I'm sure City 17 has got department stores still open with a cosmetics section. Valve original Alyx made sense, this one does not fit the world. [email protected] If she was white and had that kind of face/lips/make up I would have thought the exact same thing.
When HL2 first came out I actually broke my Z key zooming in or her ass.
i really really hope this is a joke
I prefer the original Alyx. But I don't think this looks as bad as some people are making it out. This version of her looks unique and not bad at all. I'm just too used to the original Alyk.
Eww indeed. That's NOT Alyx.
Looks like a dark Angelina Jolie IMO. Just re-work the original alyx model and make that more realistic.
you took words straight from my mouth! indeed, WTF?!
I'm all in favour of making her look more black, since, y'know, she is black. But this just looks like she got punched in the mouth. Like my last physical exam. Not pretty.
I never played hl2 (only played part of #1), but I just googled and imo this one looks better to me, but then again, usually black girls look sexier to me, so...
I'm white though btw
Black and Asian is the best combination ;)
So is Tiger Woods and he still looks Asian, just like Alyx did! Actually it's not even about that. Her face just looks completely out of character! There's no way you can make me believe that was the same Alyx I played with through the Half Life games.
This model is a great model, but FakeFactor or w/e has done quite a few different models for all the HL2 characters, and they're all shitty for the sole reason that you can't even recognize who is supposed to be who when you apply the skins. I ended up never using their mod because - for example - that is NOT Alyx. It's just another woman. If you're gonna try to make the game look better, at least don't butcher the characters. Just make a higher-poly model with higher-res textures and leave it at that.
I wish they use cry engine 2 to make it over!
You can mod whatever you want on CryEngine 2. As long as its released for free if its under a licensed property.
looks like a whore.
It's called a Snookie.
Looks like a whore because she looks more Black than the original? I done see any heels, lipstick or lace. They don't even show revealing clothing. All they show is a black chick's face with thick lips and from that, you think she looks like a whore? I fine that offensive.
Its just as offensive assuming its because shes black that shes a whore.
Shes Gorgeous, thats all there is too it.
Doesn't even look like Alyx
You said it perfectly. Why does Alyx keep looking more and more like a whore with all these mods?? Also, why is she "black"?? *EDIT* It does look really good, it just cannot in anyway replace the original Alyx.
If you ever played Half Life 2 then you would know that Alyx Vance is bi-racial.
Alyx is half Black and half Asian and here is a picture of the women she was modeled after Jamil Mullen.
The second picture is an early concept drawing of Alyx by Valve with the third picture being the classic Alyx that we all love and I wish people would stick to.
so to answer your question of "Why is she Black"...because she is Black...and Asian!
I'm co-signing 1.4.1
Alyx is Afro-Asian. Check the link below for more info, if you're unaware of what that is, lol.
Edit: Yeah, psman012, I think it looks good, but the original is the best!
Alyx's father is black!! you do know that right??
Thanks everyone, you're right. It's been a long time since I played it, I completely forgot her dad was black, rofl.
She doesn't even look like Alyx anymore.
There is something about Alyx's eyes man...beautiful eyes she has...Valve rocks..:D
disgusting. what have they done to alyx?
guys that aren't familiar with fakefactory. They're the guys that make the half life cinematic mods. So that's not gonna be in an actual game that out on retail lol If it was then they would have gotten in a lot of trouble because on one of their mods they had a high poly model of alyx, naked with a towel around her body but you could still see her vagina :0
Well we now know which team you play for.
i don't understand please explain?
This sucks...I want the old Alyx model back!
it's not going to be in a game guys it's only a mod from fakefactory. Free to download mod. They have many already. just search fakefactory cinematic mod for half life 2 and you'll see many different alyx models
Leave her alone. I really respect Valve for creating a female character that doesnt fit into the usual videogaming stereotype. This mod is not needed
valve didn't make that. An independent company known as Fakefactory did.
@cannon: Domination knows Valve didn't make that. He thanks valve for creating a character that's not stereotypical.
wow that looks just dreadful. What is with these mods? The original Alyx Model was damn near perfect and nearly every time a new cinematic mod comes out the community at large hates the way they change Alyx so why keep going. Just leave her alone. The original version was the best.
got that right!!! BARRRRRFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!
I thought original Alyx looked attractive enough, these shitty mods just fuck it up.
that tomb raider chick
What's with the sausage lips and vampy makeup? Granted, when we last saw Alyx her father just got skewered to death, so she may have had a change in her outlook on life, hence the darker emo-look. Still, please bring back original Alyx!
Ah-no, hunny... Dat hair has gotta go!!!
Jeez..the original Alyx was some one you'd come to respect in the game...smart, intelligent and sexy in her own way..
This new model looks like a slut..:(
Long live Original Alyx Vance
Those lips look WAYYY to big... like botoxed.
Oh dear God no.
and they make her look like a fucking tart again lol
She's pretty, but that ain't Alyx. That ain't Alyx at all. :/
Looks like something taken straight from a Victoria 4 model.
Why would you want to change Alyx ? There are so many terrible videogame characters that deserve (or need) a new design, and Alyx is by no mean one of them.
Lol, I agree with you about that. Even though I enjoy seeing different models of Alyx, her original look is already perfect as is.
rofl. Seriously, the good thing being he doesn't make HD model by defaut now, you have to activate them. Bless him for that.
Alyx is already so pretty, and she's one of the few not overly sexualized women in video games. This mod is horrible to her.
this is terrible
so much talent , and yet so little taste , like most attempts to ramke her . At least the common sense to have it optional is there
That is truly horrible.
Wow, is it really that hard to take the original Alyx model and make it more detailed?
Disgusting! She even has botox lips!
Nono, botox is what takes away the wrinkles and makes faces look robotic from lack of expression. She has collagen-injection lips.
Those aren't collagen-injected lips. They're a representation of her African genes (of her father, Eli, no doubt). Also note, that not all Africans share the same traits--it's an extremely diverse continent!
Black people (of African heritage), including those mixed, naturally have fuller lips than others, especially compared to those of white-European decent. White actresses sometimes have surgery / injection to acquire fuller lips, so I reckon that's how this misnomer takes place.
I have fairly full lips as a result of my African traits, even though I'm mixed. And it's beautiful on women!
He said botox, I corrected him on at least the correct terminology for the area. And no matter the reason for her lips, and while she certainly is pretty, this impostor is definitely not Alyx.
No matter how much they try, the original Alyx ends up looking WAAAAAAY better.
