how to make a ragdoll leave blood decals?


I’ve been trying to do this for so long, but i cant get the util.decal to work. My request is something easy.

How do i make it so that when i damage a ragdoll, it checks where i hit it and leaves a blood decal if he is close enough to the floor or wall???


Gore mod?

FFS im trying to make an addon, otherwise it wouldn’t be in the modding help section

Well the only way to do this is with util.Decal. Show us what you have and we will help you from there.

function hiteffect( ent, dmginfo)

	if (ent:GetClass() == "prop_ragdoll" ) then

		local effect = EffectData()  
		local origin = dmginfo:GetDamagePosition()
		effect:SetOrigin( origin )
		util.Effect( "bloodimpact", effect )
		local tr = util.TraceLine{ start = dmgpos,endpos = phys:GetPos() }
		local tr = util.TraceLine{ start = dmgpos,endpos = phys:GetPos() + Vector(0, 0, -50),filter = ent }
		util.Decal( "Blood", tr.HitPos + tr.HitNormal, tr.HitPos - tr.HitNormal ) 



hook.Add("EntityTakeDamage", "holyshit", hiteffect)

You never declared phys

this is what i was able to recover. I cant seem to find the older script.


this isn’t the script, but its close. it doesn’t work though

if(dmginfo:IsDamageType(DMG_CRUSH) or dmginfo:IsDamageType(DMG_FALL)) and (dmginfo:GetDamage() >= SlapDamage) then
       local effectdata = EffectData()
       local Pos1 = pos - pos:GetNormalized()
       local Pos2 = pos + pos:GetNormalized()

       effectdata:SetOrigin( pos )
       effectdata:SetScale( 1 )
       util.Decal("Blood", Pos1, Pos2)
       sound.Play( table.Random(bloodysounds), entpos, 100, 100 )

hook.Add(“EntityTakeDamage”, “BloodEffects”, function(ent, dmginfo)
if ent:GetClass() == “prop_ragdoll” then
local startp = dmginfo:GetDamagePosition()
local traceinfo = {start = startp, endpos = startp - Vector(0,0,50), filter = ent, mask = MASK_NPCWORLDSTATIC}
local trace = util.TraceLine(traceinfo)
local todecal1 = trace.HitPos + trace.HitNormal
local todecal2 = trace.HitPos - trace.HitNormal
util.Decal(“Blood”, todecal1, todecal2)

thank you my friend! i owe you one!!!



Ohh i see what i did wrong

Thank you x2!
