I would like to see a new cvar that controls how long gibs and gore stay on the map. I think of something like a time in seconds, for example xp_gore "60" would keep gibs and gore for 60 seconds, "0" disables it and "-1" for keep gibs and gore until the end of the map! Smug

Yes Regulon! I mean... is this Excessive Plus or Barbie land? Smug

And before the average moaners gather: I'm aware that this wouldn't be a "competitive" expansion.

Hi Bene! I really expected such comment, see my comment #2.

I am totally aware of that this might be hard to believe, but some of us are playing this game primarily for enjoyment, and not to become the most unbelievable Sk1llz0r ev4r!!!1 You know, some of us are blessed with a strong and healthy sense of identity.

It can't be done in the way that I mean. cg_gibs "1" will launch gibs from bodies but those gibs stay on the map just for 5 to 8 seconds (the time is randomly computed). But I would like to see the ability to keep gibs/blood on the map until the match is over.

So, as Fiendsin correctly said, I want to see some real carnage! Smug I mean hey, this is Excessive Plus and not Tele Tubbies' Land! We are able to shoot with super-deadly BFGs, use ultra-fast machine- and shotguns, can jump multiple times in the air etc. and the playground stays as clean as a nun's knickers? Winking

i was reading today on other forums that those gibs will only stay for 8 sec maximum. u have to write a new code for that but that will be a hell of work Winking

Yes I know, since I already looked at the code. I doubt that it would be a terrific change.

void CG_LaunchGib( vec3_t origin, vec3_t velocity, qhandle_t hModel ) {
    localEntity_t    *le;
    refEntity_t        *re;
 
    le = CG_AllocLocalEntity();
    re = &le->refEntity;
 
    le->leType = LE_FRAGMENT;
    le->startTime = cg.time;
    le->endTime = le->startTime + 5000 + random() * 3000;
    // snip

The fixed 5000 ms must be replaced with a variable, e.g. xp_gibs.
