Blatant product marketing galore! Buy this. Use that. Consume more, think less.
I absolutely love real life products in video games, so this is my take on reskinning the junk laying around in HL2. Works on other Source games as well, obviously, but HL2 is the primary game. I tried to be a little more finicky about pixel placement than the "other" junk skin, but I'm no artist, so I'm sure I might have missed something here or there or maybe just made an outright mistake. Oh well.
Products you'll see:
- Pepsi cans (only in fixed junk piles) and Pepsi bottles.
- Clorox bleach and 409 commercial cleaner.
- Bush's Baked Beans
- Heinz Beans
- Sherwin-Williams white interior paint can and Krylon spray can.
- Generic McDonald's clamshell and take-out boxes.
- Generic chinese food box emblazoned with Buffet King.
- Couple of USPS boxes.
- Starbucks coffee.
- Caterpillar 6" steel toed boot.
- Tuscan milk in a carton, glass bottle, and jug. I think Vitamin D, but maybe whole.
- Fifth of Everclear.
Not quite products, but you see them anyways:
- Some dude's dirty muffler.
- New fangled wood which was mostly skinned from fake wood, actually.
- New fangled cardboard.
- Lazily skinned piece of metal conduit.
Due to a glitch which has likely existed since Source had a name, I've included some hexed mdl files for a few glass gibs, the Everclear bottle, the Pepsi bottle, and the Tuscan glass milk bottle. These items are the only models to use transparency. If you have replacements for them, don't install them. If you see them in a generic trash pile, they won't be transparent. Etc. You get the idea.
It has come to my attention that some people think the junk is too clean, which it is. You can't sell products by advertising them as filthy!
Since I don't really feel like insulting you with 2048^2 textures and am otherwise not talented enough to make dirty textures that still look good at this resolution, here's a storyline to make you feel better about the life of citizens in City 17.
Under the Combine regime, humans are forced to live relatively modern-like lives with typical jobs and such. Modern day products still exist, but they are extremely limited due to Combine favoritism and a lack of humans to manufacture them. Solid food products are the most limited as the Combine prefer to have well hydrated but hungry slaves. Humans tend to need liquids more than solid food and are more likely to sleep on the job if they are well fed. Thus the implementation of the rationing system.
Fast food items are purchased with surplus reward rations which are earned by fulfilling civic duties. Liquid products are free. Everclear is available because alcohol provides the Combine yet another control method over citizens and encourages the effects of the memory suppressing chemicals that all liquid products are tainted with.
Commercial Formula 409 is the favored cleaning product of the Combine. It's used as everything from glass cleaner to laundry detergent. Some of the barrels that litter the countryside likely contain, or used to contain, commercial Formula 409. Clorox bleach is used to bleach undergarments, clean Combine Elite uniforms, and destroy the environment. Conveniently, both 409 and bleach are Clorox products, so they can be manufactured at the same plants.
The down-trodden citizens of City 17 display their frustration with daily life by littering as it is one of the few things that would have been illegal and now isn't under the Combine regime.
