Make certain colours transparent "on-the-fly"?


Recommended Posts

Dear developers and community,

Is it possible to make certain colours (e.g. blood red ;)) transparent "on-the-fly", i.e. while the game runs and without the need to recreate or redraw the involved (slayn) units?

I am aware of a no-violence mod, but it disabled all kinds of attacks. I only would like to make the red blood spots "invisible" for the kids. :P

If I remember correctly, somebody explained that recreating all gfx files (thousands?) in this regard is just too cumbersome (and I fully agree), but maybe doing some "in-game magic" with adjusting certain colours to being transparent could be a solution? For another mod?

Is this the right place for this topic?

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Isn't @nani's Autociv mod the solution you are looking for?
Under "Options" set "Graphics: Corpses max" to zero.

Graphics: Corpses max = 0

 

Graphics: Corpses max = 100

Thanks for reminding about your mod and sorry that I lost track a bit by focusing on the autociv mod - both are great! :thumbup:

And I understood that showing less blood and corpses improves game performance. In your words: "Blood kills performance" ;)

When I open the "no-blood-and-gore-mod.pyromod" file (downloaded to my Windows desktop) with the "pyrogenesis.exe" file, the mods window opens but nothing else, i.e. the mod does not show up as installed or to be installed. What am I missing? Thanks for your help!

PS:

Oh my bad, I just had to save and restart, of course! :blush: Sorry to have stirred the boat.
