Dude Recreates His Living Room In Half-Life, Blasts It To Hell

3D artist Graham Rust has a Valve Index VR headset and some skills with modelling, so he decided to take Half-Life: Alyx and bring some of its action inside his own house.

Rust has perfectly recreated his living room within the game, but this recreation isn’t just for looking, it’s for blasting as well. The room is actually here for a shoot-out with the forces of the Combine.

Here’s the video, showing just how well he was able to replicate the space, down to the racing setup and curtains:

If you’re wondering how he was able to put this together, Rust says that measuring the space out was easy. Scale represents 1:1 in a VR space, and when it came to his furniture, it was crafted in Maya and Photoshop, while skimming some stuff like textures from online images (his Ikea chair, for example):

As for how long it took, it’s been a slow, gradual process. Rust first modelled his work desk all the way back in 2015, but when he decided to begin this project he started building roughly one model a day, an output which doubled as he better learned how to use Maya.
