STALKER blood particles

A little mod that redesigns/enhances the bullet impacts in NPCs.

The goal was to create a "Saving Private Ryan"-like look and feel, not a "splatter mod" of any kind.

Install notes

Installing this mod is very easy:

- if you have not already changed your "fsgame.ltx", change the 2nd line so that it looks like this:

$game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata


- then copy the "particles.xr" file to your "gamedata" folder, and you're ready to go. If you want to uninstall the mod, just delete the "particles.xr" file.

I tested this with 1.0004, it works without problems. I think it should work with any other version or mod.
Please note that the screenshots (see links below) only give a very basic impression of the created effect, you need to see this in-game to get a full impression.

All I did was change the effects of the blood clouds, but I implemented eggchen's wall/concrete/dust impact enhancements, credit for this effect goes entirely to him and his work. I wouldn't have started this little project without his wall impact mod and the info he gave on the particle editor, so thanks a lot, man!

Here's what I did in detail:

- I created some new particle groups on the basis of existing particle effects that were scaled up and combined in a new order.
- I re-implemented the "headshot" blood cloud (not the gore chunks. I tried this, but it looked unsatisfactory)
- I removed two "blood drop" effects that created a kind of spray from the wound that looked unrealistic and too slow in my opinion.
- what you get are blood and dust clouds that can be seen in "Saving Private Ryan" or "Band of Brothers" (at least, this was my intention ), I didn't want to change this excellent game, that to me stands for never-before-seen realism, to a splatter orgy.

You can use this mod freely and to your liking, just give me credit when you do.

Is there anyway to mix this with other particle mods? I prefer your body impact but the particle mod I have changes other things as well. I love the movie Saving Private Ryan by the way.

There is a way, but it's a little complicated. I'll move the answer to the mod discussion section.

Blood Particles ver. 2.0 is up!

New, completely overhauled version of the mod can be found here:

http://stalker.filefront.com/file/Blood_Particles_Mod;92205

For detailed info and some screenshots, just follow the link.

EDIT: Anyone who does not have EggChen's Particle Enhancement mod installed will need an updated hotfix, or the game will crash. The download link for the hotfix can be found in my signature. Sorry for the inconvenience!

I have uploaded a hotfix for this crash. Please note that the hotfix contains only the textures that cause this error message. You don't need it if you have particle enhancement 2 installed.

Strange, it still crashes.


Expression    : fatal error
Function      : CRender::texture_load
File          : E:\stalker\patch_1_0004\xr_3da\xrRender\Texture.cpp
Line          : 295
Description   : <no expression>
Arguments     : Can't find texture 'pfx\pfx_anomaly_19_studden'



But, I don't think it'd be worth your time to go through every texture in the game. I'll just update.
