Oh Dear, You got blood on my suit!

We've been quietly chugging along, working on Patch version 2.3 and here is a sneak peek at a feature that will hopefully make it into this patch. There are some kinks with a few weapons that need to be worked out before that happens. The blood in these images are dynamically splattered onto the model so no two strikes produce the same splatter. Also by not using two textures per weapon we are keeping the fps down from bloated texture memory.

    OB supports now envmap + phong together and so now that is why the knight is looking more shiny, it will be toned down to a nice look eventually

    That's an AWESOME feature! I would never even thought anything like that was possible, but I guess with a bit of coding, (nearly) anything is possible.


    Also, SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNYYYYYYYYY! icon_agapirate.gif

    1 Just to let everyone feel happy, when i started pvk 1 i was a big n00b but i ruled everyone with the spear and i was terrible with anything else.... 2 all that blood makes me sick. 3 would be nice to have a customizable emblem on your shield, just like having different coloured parrots.

    I really like the blood, it's kinda like TF2's blood which is awesome. I like this one better though because it's more red than orange.

    Thanks. During a normal game you also won't be seeing that much blood in one place. I think the blood also looks better on small amounts. image

    What was it making the texture cropped in that straight? Overlapping blood texture..? I wasn't being cheeky, just wanted to point it out.

    I bet it's just a seam between 2 displacement brushes and Source engine refusing to spawn a blood decal correctly on that position. For more precise explanation, summon Akz or Crackapolly.

    Thanks, it would be very useful to recognize better some mate from your team and to assign players a new personal character with different features-

    Beards and piercings Dude, Huscari also need different shields http://images.google.it/images?hl=it&q...agini&gbv=2, we agree we could make different characters for each class, so everyone will not look quite the same and it should be so realistic seeing a massive horde of vikings and knights.

    This is the suggestion that I have been waiting a long time to come to fruition.
