afaik no one has remade it. Your best bet is to do it yourself. The texture file is located in your Half-life GCF with GCFscape, and find liquids.WAD. Open that with Wally. Export the textures, modify until they look good to you, import them and place your new WAD in the half-life directory.

It should be in C:\program files\steam\steamapps\half-life.gcf

Delete all your stuff and reinstall if that's the case. It would be illegal to redistribute the HL gcf

theres no way to reinstall it then see it it doesn't work that way im running linux it must be that the files are online and some are on my computer or that it just wont show them IDK but if I reinstall it it wont make a difference

EDIT: found the half-life.gcf my mistake I thought you were reffering to the folder that holds entitys

When you have your revised liquids.wad ready, put it into your \valve\ folder. Don't try to replace the GCF files.

Try an older version of GCFscape maybe. What version did you install?
