Well, I'm not going to bother with the barons/knights/cacodemons just yet. I have, however, uploaded a few additions such as sound effects. Hopefully they won't feel out of place or exaggerated.

Heh, thanks! :D You're not getting any ideas about Smooth Doom using this, are you? ;) Also, I really need to tone down the shininess of the droplets.

I'd like some opinions: should I change the individual droplet to a directional spray of some kind? Try to make it look more 3D? It would take a lot more artwork, obviously, but I've been thinking about getting a sort of gently arced streaming mess of blood to replace the droplets with.

EDIT: Release 2b is up. Made blood less shiny.

You can translate them. It applies a palette to the image first, then it translates it.

Re: Droplets - A Blood Modification (release 3)

Postby Josh771 » Thu Aug 14, 2014 8:37 pm

Release 3 is up! I've added 3D blood stains to replace the floor blood sprites, and I must say that it looks absolutely wonderful. :D Have fun!

EDIT: If anyone could suggest a way for me to get the blood puddles to disappear on liquid terrain, that would be fantastic. I added +FLOORCLIP in the hopes that it would eliminate the issue, but the behavior is the same: I have blood puddles "floating" on top of the water (in games like Heretic where the water is actually "deep").

Also, the crossbow in Heretic seems to produce a different kind of blood, one which I haven't accounted for. I'd like to learn what's going on there so I can replace it with my blood particles.

Is there any way to tie in some kind of enhanced version of this for gibbing. Like spawn 10 instances or something, I know you just started working on it and all but when you gib something there is no blood. But by god this is some good bloodspray. I was just looking for an alternate to ketchup, ketchup looks too mspaint for me

I really like this so far. I'd support the argument about the splats being too vertical though, it didn't feel realistic splurging so far upwards.
On a sidenote my PC once again proves its incompetence as I test the map20 boss infight :D
Some of the droplets actually remained animated on the ground for some reason, without spawning a floor decal.

I'm considering adding that; all I'd really have to do is redefine all the classic Doom monsters so that their XDeath states spew blood all over the place. It would make my blood incompatible with anything else that changes the classic Doom monster states, but it might be worth it.

Alright, I'll make the droplets less inclined to move vertically. Also, that's really strange; I haven't seen any droplets just spinning on the floor like that.

Release 4 is uploaded. In this version, blood droplets fly out more than up, and I've also added extra blood spray to gibbed monsters in Doom, Heretic, and Hexen. :)

I like it. It's got a reasonable amount of splatter compared to the blood of some other mods. Maybe you could have the droplets fly out at more varying speeds and angles? As far as I've seen, they all seem to come out at the same velocity and it gives a bit of a fire sprinkler effect when attacking with rapid weapons. Perhaps the droplets could also vary in size/shape a bit, with the slightly larger ones traveling through the air more slowly.

I wish you the best of luck with this. It's always driven me crazy when blood from every mod I've played just sits on top of the water. Even if it sat there for a few seconds then faded that would be nice. Good work so far though. :)

There are currently 3 different sized droplets, they fly out in a randomly selected direction, and they're supposed to randomize their velocity on spawn. :) I'll work on it some more, since A_ScaleVelocity doesn't seem to want to play nicely with anything I put in it.
