The Decal system in FreeSpaceOpen can be used to create permanent or semi-permanent effects, like impact marks for example.

This table is distributed exclusively in tbm format (as *-dcl.tbms).

Note that decals are only usable on systems that support deferred rendering and normal mapping.

  • This table consists of one section, beginning with #Decals and ending with #End.
