While Transfusion attempts to almost completely recreate the game blood, with all the textures, enemies, levels, weapons, and the effects intact, why not create a Quake mod that just alters the Quake enemy models to resemble the Blood enemies, alter some of the weapons to resemble Blood weapons, and features simple blood colored or gothic looking levels? Basically, why not create a simple Blood mod for Quake that requires less work, and maybe some creative fun? For a proof of concept, how about designing a Quake styled monastary, dark blood colored, of course, featuring reskinned Grunts and Enforcers as Cultists and Fantatics, and the Ogres could be reskinned to be Axe Zombies, except without the chainsaw and grenade throwing function (and probably thinner than the Ogre). OR, the Knights could be reskinned to be the axe zombies. It doesn't have to be a strictly faithful Blood game, since the design would be more Quake-like, and therefore make the game more surreal (depending upon the skills of the level editor). It could even feature a Quake styled boss in the end, similar to Cthon, a freakish giant abnormality rising from a sea of blood, which you would fight from a small dock.
This is all hypothetical, but what would any of you see in a probable project such as this, and would it be an interesting project to pursue, or just among many lame ideas offered by other Blood enthusiasts.
Now I understand your talking about it not being exact, but if someone made a mod with Quake I would certainly try it.
I'm glad that the concept is considered. I was considering more of a three or four level mod, probably for Dark Places, or for the original Quake, but though even with a simpler design, it could require a lot of work, equal to Transfusion (for the hardest Transfusion workers of all, I pledge my allegiance to!). It might even take too much effort to create a Blood-esque Cthon-like boss for a mod like this, let alone recreate Tchernobog on the Dark Places engine (come to me, my child! let us Embrace at Last!).
5 or 6 public releases ago, you could play quake with transfusion models. I don't know if they still have that build over at sourceforge though. It had to be through quakeworld, or winquake, or something along those lines.This sounds like a cool idea. I haven't played Transfusion in years but can't you run straight Quake through Transfusion?
Yes, it would be fun to use the flare gun to give that ogre bastard the slow death quake never managed.
