Description

It would be pretty neat if the water could splash in
doom like it does in Heretic and Hexen.

This is in my wishlist as well. Maybe you could port some code from Risen3D or something.

Given that Heretic/Hexen's mechanism for splashes is game-side and involves mobjs and sprites not present in Doom, this shouldn't be built into libdoom as such. However, particle generators started when touching a plane would be quite useful.

There should be a flag for controlling whether the generator is started only when the contact is begun, or should it be running continuously while the contact is in effect, or when contact ends.

We need to carefully consider the logically separation between mobj and particle generator. Particles which affect the playsim are troublesome.

I believe a cleaner approach would be mechanism similar to the existing "damage generator" -- i.e., spawn a generator when a mobj contacts a world surface.
