Thanks Tchernobog, For some reason, I also had thought that Caleb resembled in some ways Spawn by Todd McFarlane as well as The Crow. With The Crow, I can definitely see the parallel: man and true love are brutally murdered, man resurrects again as a twisted clown-like angel of death killing his ene...

Lovecraftian Influence on Blood

Out of curiosity, which H.P. Lovecraft stories supposedly inspired the character of Caleb, and the nature of BLOOD's story? I recall from the original Monolith BLOOD site that the creators claimed some inspiration from Lovecraft, because of the moral ambiguity of his main characters. It's very cool ...

NOLF as a BLOOD Mod?

Although I never owned the game, I have been fascinated by No One Lives Forever, and am amazed by how far Monolith Productions went in terms of programming and design to create that game. From developing CLAW, BLOOD, SHOGO, and BLOOD 2, they had really pushed the LithTech engine and their own nutty ...

Hexen 2 Programs for Inspiration?

How complex are the AI and enemy programming of Hexen 2 in comparison of those in Quake 1? Could the programming techniques utlized in Hexen 2's models, AI, and additional programs could be utilized for the benefit of Transfusion's programming, or has this idea already been considered?

Tchernobog: Different Expectations ?

What were your expectations for Tchernobog before you played the game. I recall seeing what he looked like through the Monolith site Blood screamshots (eons ago) and through the BLOOD strategy guide. For some reason, I expected him more to be a giant skeletal humanoid version of the gargoyle, or rat...

QStudios's Vision of Blood

Beast reporting, I've been interested in the development history of Blood, and I'm curious about something: Does anybody wonder what Blood would have been like if it was fully developed by QStudios and not by Monolith? I'm curious as to what QStudios' original intention behind Blood is. Who would ha...

It's not DEAD! The Old Ones just need to be revived, and they need a larger crew! CABAL LEADERS! Release the SHOGGOTHS! They will help us in our endeavor to complete TRANFUSION! (The shoggoths might destroy us, like they did to the Elder Things AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS, but that's a risk we're wi...

I think they may do Shogo 2, based off the theory of one of our valued members, and that may be trying to beef up their LithTech engine that would rival 3D Realm's work on the Unreal Engine 2 for DNF, and create the ultimate revival for Blood: It'll be known as "BLOOD FOREVER"! Looking past that bad...

Yeah, it would be a cool idea to have a mod where Caleb finds himself in the Quake dimension. Imagine Caleb preying upon the other Lovecraftian monstrosities through his gruesomely humorous methods. Would have to incorporate a lot of Blood dark humor into the level design. For example, a few shamble...

qBlood Idea

As many Transfusion historians would know, this was the working title for Transfusion, and even though the title cannot be used anymore (for copyright reasons), the name itself has some intruiging possibilities. While Transfusion attempts to almost completely recreate the game blood, with all the te...

:D That means Bethesda will start developing Heretic / Hexen first-person RPGs! Heretic meets Elder Scrolls! Excellent! :) Anyway, it's a very unexpected move, but it would be interesting if Bethesda started doing Elder Scrolls styled games set in the Doom, Quake (first Quake), or Heretic / Hexen un...

Updates would be most preferable, predator. Thanks for being helpful and obliging. Are layouts and screenshots of the orginal levels of Blood available for amateur editors to review?

I didn't mean to restart a controversy! I'm SORRY! I was ignorant!

Thanks for trying to clarify everything, I Live....AGAIN. There still a great deal of many lessons I need to learn about modding and fan game production.
I still like to see what Kurt thinks of my screenshot ideas.

Blood 2 must be ressurected! CALEB MUST PROVE THAT HE IS THE SHOGO WARRIOR, AND THAT NO CABAL MEMBER LIVES FOREVER! It doesn't seem logical for anyone to copy what you've been doing, Kurt. Copying your work and story means that there are modders with no originality or any self-reliable skills in the...

Actually, I didn't. I know that that already is an SDK, but it is six years old, and I thought that there might be an important update in progress. I did read somewhere in the forum that someone was working on a new one, but as to when it would be released, I'm not sure. I just wrote "Nevermind" bec...
