I was wondering if its possible to make some sort of mutator/tool that can reduce the lifespan of SELECTED decals rather than having to turn them all off entirely. What I plan to do with such a script is forcibly destroy impact decals after, say, 15 seconds, and allow gore decals to remain their normal length. I have attempted to replicate the above through an exec, but to no avail, as it seems to only effect the properties of what is currently rendered, rather than applying them for the duration of the session. It would make the aftermath of something like the Cluster Redeemer less of an eyesore (The blast decals, I mean. The actual explosion is beautiful)
So... is that even possible?

You would need to build a mutator to run client-side only, and from there all you would need to do is to either iterate through all decals every once in a way (once every second for example) to check them, or to try to assign them a lifespan once they spawn through a SpawnNotify actor.
There's a mutator somewhere which forces decals to last forever, and it may be what you want to look for code-wise to do this (I never saw the code myself, so I cannot attest on its quality though).
To compensate, I made my own Exec file that seems to work just fine.
But if you wanna nitpick, heres the code:
