Title: Crushed roach decals
Post by: Coozins on December 20, 2006, 09:38:31 PM
I think it's unrealistic that when you squash a cockroach a large alien blood decal appears, as there is way too much blood for such a small creature. I think instead of a blood decal there should be a squashed cockroach decal. Also, I think roaches have red blood, not yellow.

Thanks for that riveting insight ;)

I don't think it's possible without some sort of modified code. Of course you can just edit the size of the yellow blood decals, it would just mean less blood splatter for when you killed an alien...

That's what I meant. After all, Half-Life Enhanced is going to have modified code.

I'm so sorry I didn't see that this was a HL:E sub-forum, I've been up far too long today and should goto bed before I post something else without looking, night  :D

I like this idea, it's one of those obvious yet over looked sorta things. I'd be more than happy to help design some crunched roach guts :P


*Goes to find some roaches and smush them so he can scan them for perfect realisim....*

...what? >_>;

Roaches don't bleed red blood. I've squashed them before, their blood is more yellowish.

Instead of only blood... they could change to a squashed submodel.

Yeah I would think the decal should look like a smashed bug... Or like rapid said, a submodel...

Also would look good.

It should be a submodel so you can have a death animation of it squirming on the ground.  ;D

But then you wouldn't crush them to tiny bits with your heavy HEV boots. :(

Trust me, roaches really DO have that much blood in them. Just last week I smashed on a tiny (1inch) florida roach and the damn thing had enough guts to make a book sized splat AND spray the walls.
