Step 3: Click on one (ex:(BIGBLOOD1). Now click anywhere in your room (wall,ceiling,floor) and BOOM your decal has been applied! There is now blood in your room! It's that easy.

Valve Hammer Editor (VHE) version 3.3. This tutorial shows how to apply decals. Decals are blood, numbers; or even rad symbols. or They are quite possibly one of the if not the EASIEST thing to do in hammer. Now i will post more tutorials soon but for now i will just post this one. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns; just leave a comment at my channel or PM me.


Well, pictures would help here alot.
Although I would recommend you to choose Source or HL2 as Related Groups/Game/Engine, instead of Valve.

The texture he mentioned is related to the Goldsource engine, also the Source engine's decal textures are already colored in hammer.

And I agree with your recommedations.
