Description

This addon makes mutants more realistic by making them bleed, leave blood trails and in some cases collapse if they are critically wounded. Also different type of ammounition will affect bleeding intensity differently.

Make sure the script file is in your *anomaly_folder*\gamedata\scripts\ folder. I tested it with this download, it is working for me.
What is NG?

What values did you add/edit to make mutants bleed?

Mutant ltx files contains settings regarding bleeding, but the engine ignores this ones. Maybe unfinished feature for the original game, I suspect.

I wrote a script, to "emulate" bleeding effect. Each shot the target receives adds a bleeding wound on the target. On the top of the script file you can play with the two settings.

Thank you. Do you have any idea if this will work with Call of Pripyat or any of the other games?

This addon will work with Call of Chernobyl, and with every mod, which is based on Call of Chernobyl. It won't work with unmodded Call of Pripyat sadly.

Will this scrip work with unused mutants like those from the mutant hordes addon? (bilioteklars, albino pseudogiants etc)
Hope it does. Tnx mate

It works on every mutants. Including ones which are not present in the core Anomaly mod.

If the new mutants have special behaviour connected to their health, like zombies standing up several times, that behaviour might not trigger. I filter zombies for the word "zombie", additional checks can be added easily into my mod.

Bled a pseudogiant to death, was reloading when he keeled over. Very nice.

Did get a crash later, though:

[error]Expression : <no expression>
[error]Function : CScriptEngine::lua_error
[error]File : ..\xrServerEntities\script_engine.cpp
[error]Line : 191
[error]Description : fatal error
[error]Arguments : LUA error: ...omaly1.5v8\gamedata\scripts\arszi_mutant_bleeding.script:39: attempt to call method 'alive' (a nil value)

It was while helping Gatekeeper.

EDIT: Still enjoying the campfire cooking mod:)

Do mutants leave blood trail or do they have a visual effect indicating they are bleeding?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

Sadly not at the moment. Visuals are engine-controlled in this case, I think. I will look into it in the future.

Wolfster made a nice mod for "Stalker - Dead Air" which has exactly that feature. He even provided new textures for the bleedmarks. As far as I can tell most of the bloodspread(size/freq/etc) is controlled through the system.ltx at least in Dead Air it is, don't quite know about Anomaly. I'll have to say that Wolfster snuck in carryweight tweak that I think does not belong there but that's prolly unintentional. Link: Moddb.com

Nice! I will try to integrate it into my mod, and if it works, I will contact Wolfsterr if can I release it for my mod, with the credits of course.

I added a compatibility patch for it, download my mod again, and it will contain the compatibility patch. See readme for further instructions!

"Enemy health bar and some user interface mods might not show health loss from bleeding properly, but it is definitely there!"
hmm, I don't see any reason to turn on enemy health bar and afaik there is no interface mod that has something to do with enemy health

A great, great addon mate. I love immersion addons like this. As someone earlier in the comments suggested, a "blood trail" or something would be really cool! But still, even without it, your addon makes the game more "realistic". Good stuff.

UPDATE: I added a compatibility option for Wolfster's Blood Mod, as requested. It is savegame compatible, no new game is required!

To use Wolfster's Blood Mod with this addon:
1, Download Wolfster's Blood Mod from Moddb: Moddb.com
2, Extract the "gamedata" folder in it to the Anomaly folder.
3, Copy the "gamedata" folder in my compressed file from the "WolfstersBloodModCompatibility" into the Anomaly folder.
The compatibility patch of mine contains one file, called system.ltx in gamedata/configs.
This file contains Wolfster's settings, in a compatible form with Anomaly. I use his settings as they are, did not modify anything.

I did not have much time to test it for a playthrough, but seems to be fine. Using it is optional, and if you experience any issues with it, it can be removed by deleting the system.ltx and texture files. No savegame will be affected by it.

I'm unclear about the process of including Wolfsters mod.

Do we need to apply Wolfster + Compatability AFTER installing your mod gamedata, or SKIP your gamedata and just do Wolfster + Compatability?

1, Install my gamedata.
2, Install Wolfer's.
3, Install the pacth, overwrite when it asks for it.

Hey Arszi, thank you for the addon! It runs fine on my game.

I'm using version 1.5, with hotfix 8 and the 1.4 update.

I'm a big fan os Stalker, and rediscovered the game after so many years. And I keep finding these gems, like Call of Chernobyl before and now, Anomaly and its addons. Yours, it helps with the immersion, at least for me. So thanks again!

Hey i was wondering if theres a way to make npcs bleed too or if there already is a mod for that.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Arszi Author
Arszi - - 675 comments

Hey! They can not "officially", but there are game mechanics implemented already, which try to simulate it to some degree. If they are low on health they might surrender, or fall on the ground into wounded position. If I would add bleeding to them, it will break these core game mechanics. In case of mutants, I did not have restrictions like this.

Alright, but since they never really "surrender" it would be nice if they just bleed out after a while or if they just straight up collapse on the spot,you could make it like an optional patch maybye.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Arszi Author

There is an addon, which makes them surrender:
Moddb.com

I use the 50% surrender chance settings, that one is perfect for me. On the other hand, making them collapse more is a good idea! At the moment they can collapse under 10% of health with very minimal chance.

In the future I will investigate the topic. NPC s have complex behaviour, also the AI can not handle bleeding at all, I have to modify things, which will bring their own issues with them.

I won't forget the topic, but it will require an immense amount of time. When I finished with my primary projects, I will do something about it! It was bugging me too for a while...

Thanks its just an idea, since im not a modder i really have no concept of how complicated these things can be, but i did see the mechanic in dead air on all npcs too maybye its an asset you could borrow.

When Anomaly 1.5 is out, I will revise things definitely. I want to avoid using other bigger mods assets, because who knows how deeply is the feature integrated. (Also intellectual property stuff.) When the time comes, I'll make my own version probably.

Question. Is the bleeding damage 1/200th of the bullet damage per second, or 1/200 of the damage over 360 seconds? Just making sure for my own tweaking purposes.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Arszi - - 675 comments

The initial damage is 1/200th of bullet damage / in-game seconds, which will last for 360 in-game seconds, and with every in-game second, it will get weaker, until it stops completely.
