for all i know, you can't use 3ds for anything in HL2, you would have to stick to XSi, which sucks...the poly count is more than you have to worry about.

You can use 3ds for modeling to HL2. Though it doesn't seem easy. Ive read somewhere that you can make Maps in 3ds with some kinda plugin or script. Anyway, "Google is your friend!" Just search for it :)
