Blood Dripping Effect

Hi Devs, I’m making an horror game and I just wanted to know how to improve this code that makes fall a red block looking like blood dripping. I just want it to be more realistic

local lifetime = 1

while true do
	wait(1.5)
	local pos = script.Parent
	local b = Instance.new("Part")	

	b.Position = pos.Position + pos.CFrame.lookVector
	b.Size = Vector3.new(0.2, 1, 0.2)
        b.formFactor = 2
	b.Shape = 1
        b.BrickColor=BrickColor.new("Bright red")
	b.Transparency = .5
	b.TopSurface = "Smooth"
	b.BottomSurface = "Smooth"
	b.CanCollide = false
	b.Parent = game.Workspace
	b.Velocity = Vector3.new(0, 0, 0)
	game:GetService("Debris"):AddItem(b, lifetime)
end

It’d suggest using particles and cleaning a bit the code since its really kinda messy and basic. Like using a module script to store the data for the ParticleEmitter or Part.

I experimented and fixed up the code a little bit, but overall your code is really good.

while wait(1.5) do -- You can replace true with the delay
	local pos = game.Workspace.Part -- I used a workspace part; you can change it back to script.Parent
	
	local b = Instance.new("Part")	
	b.Position = pos.Position + pos.CFrame.lookVector
	b.Size = Vector3.new(0.2, 1, 0.2)
	b.formFactor = 2
	b.Shape = 1
	b.BrickColor = BrickColor.new("Bright red")
	b.Transparency = .4 -- changed the transparency because it was too transparent
	b.TopSurface = "Smooth"
	b.BottomSurface = "Smooth"
	b.CanCollide = false
	b.Parent = game.Workspace
	b.Velocity = Vector3.new(0, 0, 0)
	
	game:GetService("Debris"):AddItem(b, 1) -- The lifetime variable wasn't used anywhere else
end

Hi! So recreated it into my game and this is the result! I also deleted the delay and replaced it with

while wait (math.random(20,50)/10) do

you cah achieve a similar affect like this while using particles or beams, it’ll look more realistic too using textures over bricks

You could fix up this code a lot more. This is how I would do it

local Debris = game:GetService("Debris")

local pos = script.Parent -- you should refrain from giving inaccurate variable naming, consider changing its name

--[[
	You really don't need to create a new part and set all the properties in a script.
	You could simply just create a part, change its properties, put it in ReplicatedStorage, and index/clone it.
]]

local b = Instance.new("Part")	-- You also don't really have to shorten this variable's name
b.Size = Vector3.new(0.2, 1, 0.2)
b.formFactor = 2
b.Shape = 1
b.BrickColor = BrickColor.new("Bright red")
b.Transparency = .5
b.TopSurface = "Smooth"
b.BottomSurface = "Smooth"
b.CanCollide = false
b.Parent = workspace

while true do
	wait(1.5)
	
	local ClonedPart = b:Clone()
	ClonedPart.Position = pos.Position + pos.CFrame.lookVector
	
	Debris:AddItem(b, 1)
end
