Best Mods for Half Life 2?
I just received a copy of Half Life 2 from a nice member on the Kindness Thread. One of the reasons I wanted this game was because of the amazing mods I've seen for this game. As soon as i get finished playing the actual game I'm gonna be trying out some of them that I already have in mind.
But what are some of your favorites?
p.s. if you could also leave a link to where i could download the mod, that'd be awesome. thanks!

Dystopia was pretty sweet back when I used to play it. Cyberpunk team objective-based action with cyberspace hacking, implants and whatnot. Fun, nice theme and great production values (at least in the original maps; the later ones were still good but didn't seem as slick somehow).

Mod-wise, HL2 actually ended up being pretty weak. It was the tail end of the "Let's just mod the crap out of every game" craze. And most of the really good ones have actually become standalone games.
But if you like the gunplay and want a fun story, try Minerva
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

I highly suggest the FakeFactory mod which can be found here: http://cinematicmod.com/, it will transform Half-Life 2 in to a next generation game. It also features better character high res character models, each character has about 4 versions.

NeoTokyo was really good,their OST was just mindblowing for me.
Cinematic mod,you can keep HL2 alyx so no need for crying,also you can disable that awful bloom so you only have high res textures which are quite nice.

The only Half life 2 mod I consider essential reading. All the other mp mods were choked to death by feature creep.
One guy who looks like a shimmer of the predator (as in the movies) who can leap huge distances and kill with a single hit or eat killed opponents for health versus 4-8 other guys have a mix of assault weaponry.
The 4-8 are very much the prey

Are this mod still played ? Sounds fairly interesting.... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace.

If you want a good single-player mod, try Get A Life. It's a but rough around he edges but really awesome and long (took me about 10 hours to beat)

Misdirection and trickery are the hidden best tools, that and hanging corpses from the ceiling like meat.

Minerva was exceptionally good, although I can't recall whether I played all of it. Think it came in three equally generously sized portions.

Zombie Panic!: Source is good too.
SMOD and GMOD obviously. Missing Information too. Eclipse.
Half Life 2 definitely isn't a poor modding scene.

They're not forcing you to use new alyx,you can freely keep the original model.... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace.

I've had my eye on this one for a while and it'll probably be the 1st one i try. just wondering if anyone else has tried it out or heard anything good/bad about it?
Eternal Silence http://www.moddb.com/mods/eternal-silence
The only thing i don't like is that it appears to be a multiplayer mod, hoping it has single player, as that's more of what i'm interested in.
I'm really into space games/sims and if any of you guys know of anything else like this, please let me know. thanks
