Yes, I know it sounds like a retarded question, but I really want this game and can't get it unless there is a way to turn the blood off.

Any links to mods that reduce or eliminate the blood would be greatly appreciated, as would console commands to lessen the blood as well.

Sorry! that sounded a bit harsh. It would be possible to change the blood texture to make it smaller or even completely invisible but most people want the opposite. MORE GORE!

i think that should be a pretty easy thing to do. Nobody has done it yet because, like subzeroplainzero said, most people want more blood and gore than provided by the default game.

I see 2 ways of eliminating blood from the game for you. One is covering the blood graphics with a transparency layer so you don't see them. The other one that may work is editing the "[bloody_marks]" section in the system.ltx and reducing all values there to 0. Haven't tried it yet, but it should work.

I assume this is an issue with your parents not wanting you to play a game with blood in it.

If that is true then I sure hope your parents don't understand Russian because the game is full of cussing.

The game isn't rated M (for MATURE) for nothing.

How would I add the transparency layer?

Try this, it will help with the splatters on walls and such. But be advised that there is a lot of blood on concrete and walls in various places that will be there because it is already in the textures of the game. It would take a lot of work to search all those out and edit all the different texture files. But this will at least keep the blood from splattering on the walls when you shoot someone.

Find your "system.ltx" file located in, C:\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\gamedata\config. Open it with your notepad and find the part that looks like the code I posted. I just put zero's on everything that may be needed. I tried it out, and it works. But if you're up close and shoot someone in the chest with a shotgun you will see some blood spray but it won't splatter on the walls or ground.

If you don't know how to do all this let me know and I'll send you the file and how to set it up.

Also, there is a no cussing mod out there somewhere if you need that.

Change everything to make it look like this:

[bloody_marks] wallmarks = wm\wm_blood_1,wm\wm_blood_2,wm\wm_blood_3 dist = 0.0 max_size = 0.0 min_size = 0.0 nominal_hit = 0.0 blood_drops =

wm\wm_blood_drop_1,wm\wm_blood_drop_2,wm\wm_blood_drop_3,wm\wm_blood_drop_4 start_blood_size = 0.0 stop_blood_size = 0.0

blood_drop_time = 0.0 blood_drop_time_min = 0.0 blood_drop_time_max = 0.0 blood_drop_size = 0.0
