AeniPuffs - pretty blood and sparky bullets

Wanna feel like your hitscan attacks are packing more of a punch? Do you like the particle effects of games that are only a few years newer than Doom? Then have we got a show for you ...

All this PK3 does is replace the boring Doom bulletpuffs and blood with some pretty model-based sparks, ricochets, and blood droplets. The blood puffs themselves have a nice misty effect like in Doom3, while the resulting spatter droplets can stick to the walls and floor.

Sound was also paid much attention to. I tried to be as subtle as possible but if you think shit's still too loud, lemme know and I'll tone it down more. Don't expect retardedly-loud blood and ricochet sounds like some other mods, the rolloff is very steep so you'll really only hear blood sounds if you blast somebody up close, and you'll usually only hear ricochets if you're the one getting shot at (or if you shoot a wall up close).

Should work with any map or mod that doesn't replace the default blood/bulletpuffs.

Awesome stuff! Just gave it a shot with Survivalism and it works nicely. :)

My first impression is that the sounds are totally fine. The yellow ricochet streaks might be a bit over the top, but I like that the blood puffs are modest. Good work!

Thanks! I can tone down the opacity of the ricochets if you think it would look better.

May be to reduce the number of particles, because it looks like fireworks. :smile:

Done.

I also fixed a bug that had to do with inheriting from "blood" directly which causes some weird desync and/or failed jumps online, so I circumvented that by having it instantly A_SpawnItemEx a seperate actor for the main blood.
