Increases the resolution size from 256 to 1024 and created new textures for screen, world, wounds and static blood decals. Esps are used to increase the size appearance of the blood, adjustments for screenblood, add more giblets and new wounds related to the weapon type. ini will change max amount and lifetime for blood that is in the world space.

Blood/gib color may appear differently than intended if you are using any lighting or weather mods.

This mod is included in FOOK2 although it's an older version and missing unique wounds, proper blood size, and newer textures. Esps can be loaded after FOOK but the screen blood and splatters in the environment will still be under control of FOOK2. Problems such as very large screen splatters and taking a very long time to be remove. There is a way to make it appear like it should be.(This may or may not work such as blood will appear small instead)

-First press and hold "o" until a menu pops up.
-go to FOSE Dependent options and features
-then Blood Settings
-select Normal

If you have issue with Decap Splatters not working try disabling anti-aliasing. This is a game engine problem that will apply noise filter on the outer edges of these textures. This will affect all particle effects including muzzle flashes and explosions. This problem was fixed in an earlier game patch I believe it is 1.2 but then broke again around 1.5 patch.

If you notice wounds not appearing it could be that you are using a body mod. It depends if the body mod is made to support wounds properly. Even without this mod, wounds will not appear.

Random flashing white dot on blood. This is an ATI video card issue default blood will have the same affect.

I recommend that you install:

It will rid the need of the ArchiveInvalidation file or use the one included in FOMM

-First you need bInvalidateOlderFiles to be 1 which should be active by now if you've been using mods.

Open FALLOUT Config file found in:
...My DocumentsMy gamesFallout3

-After its open find bInvalidateOlderFiles and change the 0 to 1


This will increases the amount and lifetime of blood splatters
-Next, find the following lines:


and change the numbers to (or any number you want the higher the more and longer the blood will last):


-Now open FalloutPrefs.ini and change:

"Extract" data folder into your fallout 3 directory.
Yes to replace

-For Alternate Textures-
For alternate screen blood, go to:
Enhanced Blood FilesAlternate Textures

Open rar file that you want to use.

Extract the data folder inside the rar into your fallout 3 directory.

The Files are inside:
"Enhanced Blood Files" folder

Move following file to the data folder and activate it:

dD - Enhanced Blood Main NV.esp:
Main will change blood splatter size, screen blood settings, add unique wounds and size based on weapon type, and add missing wound texture data to weapons and creatures that didn't have one.

Increases the size and amount of unsearchable giblets when body parts explode; including robots. Activate the files according to the DLCs that you have. Those files are optional you don't need to use those.
