Try using very faint light (a fake way of increasing the radiosity) in the middle of the room and keep the strip lights to the original version.

Its a ClawScanner. They where present in Half-Life 2 Original. However you never saw them in that form. They where always closed up. I then just parented an env_sprite to it, ive adjusted the size of the sprite, it was slightly too big.

Aus, you need more dramatic lighting in that scene. Try making the sun on a steeper angle, so you get some nice shadows in that alley :D

Never really felt much compassion for rebels, they always fight like cretins. The combine bursting in are rather awesome, but I feel that the actual emplacement needs....beefing up somewhat.

It does seem a good concept so far Alex, just seems a bit odd that the building the rebels are hiding in only contains a couple of boxes and a table for them to hide behind, maybe try and give the building a purpose and decorate it accordingly

Here is another WIP update. Still trying to get Alyx's face correct, i haven't really used face poser before. Changed the angle of the light_env and added buildings behind the camera view to get a good shadow cast over the alley way.
