- The Cinematic Mod 10 is under construction, and new screenshots show the Bump Maps for rocks, the 'worth seeing' HD objects and an enhanced Alyx figure (below).
According to the modder Fakefactory
, the Cinematic Mod 10 is in Pre-Beta phase and so the screenshots possibly don't represent the final graphics.
Most interesting are the laboriously modeled and textured HD objects like PCs and technical devices. But the new rocks with detailed Bump Maps are an eye catcher, too. Furthermore there is a new "eased" version of the alternative HD Alyx.
Finally, some background on Cinematic Mod 10: A release date has not been announced yet. The HD characters have been heavily optimized in version 10. Due to a new LoD system the framerate should be noticeably better than it has been in Cinematic Mod 9.
Among the new features are HD models for certain objects and a new, optional HD model of Alyx. Furthermore a dynamic soundtrack, some HDR tweaks and some more bugfixes have been added.
