Nash's Blood Mod [discontinued]

It's been almost 10 years since I made nashgore, my how time flies! Anyway, here's the blood-only portion of nashgore. The goal, from 2006, has always been to recreate Blood's trail FX. I may have been shooting at some gargoyle statues for the past 10 years to recreate this effect in ZDoom.

Screenshots don't do it justice, you have to see it in motion. I hope you agree that this is the closest anyone's ever come to Blood's blood trails without source code!

Do whatever you want, no need to ask me for permission if you want to use this in your mods, have fun!

[This contains blood effects ONLY. No colourized blood, no gib splats, no other junk. The REAL version of nashgore will be released another time... not that it's of much relevance with all of the Br00tal mods around here]

27 November 2018: this mod is discontinued and is now replaced with Nash's Gore Mod: Vengeance Edition

Glad to see a new Nash gore mod. I like this way better than Brutal Doom in terms of blood effects and gibs. Now all we need is some violent death sprites...

Wonderful, thank you!
I was always wondering how the "flat model on floor for blood" thing worked, and this is a wonderfully simple demonstration.

You're welcome! :D

I tried to make the blood splats voxels at first, so that software renderer users can enjoy it too, but it turned out to be a real system hog - to make the blood look convincing, I had to make huge, high res voxels and then scale them down - otherwise they'd just look like this huge blocky red gunk.

Performance seems to scale really poorly with 50-100 of those high res voxels littered around on the screen...

Looks especially awesome when combined with other blood effects.

Looks a lot like the shit I did quite a while ago for burl tumd, except with less actor spam and more 3D floor splats.

Very cool job! :)

I've been using Droplets v13 so far in my gaming and mod development, but this one is also a big alternative! Hoping to see the complete version with more blood colours, hehehe! :thumb:

Very good! Though I noticed that the blood seems floaty (unless that's what you're aiming for!). But very good work. :)

Argh, that must have been that old mesh from 2006 or whatever where it was too high off the ground. :/ I have a better mesh that's much more flush to the floor but I must've included the wrong .md3. Will fix!
