... We have been wanting this since 2002.

Maybe, just maybe this will be possible with polymost.

What about in GZDoom?

And yes, it is because oif the way the current renderer works that makes implementing decals on the floor very difficult. IIRC, it would require a complete rewrite of the Doom renderer... Randy has fount a way around that by incorperating the Polymost engine... lets see what things that is possible of.

Maybe it's possible with Graf's renderer rewrite too?

The renderer could handle it. But the decal code from ZDoom can not.

Because ZDoom cannot handle decals on floors so there's no code to do it. It would have been a waste of time to implement something that cannot be used.
