About this mod

Disables dirt and/or blood accumulation. Now comes with optional files that enable you to better customize the amount of filth you accumulate.

Permissions and credits
What does this mod do?
The main file disables dirt and/or blood accumulation, meaning there's no more gradual, visible build up of filth just from walking around for a minute. Disabling accumulation will not remove filth retroactively, but if you start fresh or you wash it off, it should prevent accumulation from then on.

Optional files allow you to customize how fast or slow you want to accumulate filth based on percentages. Combine them to your taste. Three main categories:
  • Distance: The length of distance you have to walk for filth to build up.
  • Dirt: The amount of dirt you build up per distance walked.
  • Blood: The amount of blood you build up per distance walked and fights fought.

Misc files are loose textures that will turn skin or hair filth invisible. These two can be used together or separately, depending on your needs. WARNING: Currently the hair textures slightly break the afro and dreadlock based hairstyles, where the hair cards' ends don't blend into a natural wispy look, and I tried to find a way to solve this but unfortunately I couldn't :( Additionally there's a hair and beard color mismatch when using the invisible texture, for that I recommend Appearance Edit Enhanced to see if you can fix the mismatch ASAP.

The pak mods should be compatible with any other mod that edits the same file, though not the same values (so any other mod that tweaks filth accumulation).
The misc invisible texture files will conflict with any mod that edits the same textures.

  • A mod fixer of your choice: Customizer's Compendium comes with built-in mod fixer and additional features; Mod Fixer is a standalone mod with no additional features. There are other mods with built-in fixers too, mod manager now shows these mods with a unique icon.
  • ImprovedUI is recommended to disable the story error message, but it's not a hard requirement.

Known issues
"We've detected a data mismatch, which may be caused by unsupported mods, corrupt files, or unknown data. This could cause crashes or issues running the game. Please see our support page for more information."
If you see the message above in your launcher, don't worry! It's a default warning with mods. Assuming the mod is not out of date, it should be as safe to use as any other mod.

Suddenly the player character is stuck at maximum dirt/blood levels, and it's not reset by anything including uninstalling this mod!
This is an extremely rare bug that I've seen a few people encounter. You're highly unlikely to have this bug, but if you do, you can download the invisible loose textures to bypass the issue.

Install the pak mods via the mod manager of your choice. BG3 Mod Manager is preferred as that's what I'm using, but reportedly it works with Vortex too.
Install the texture mods by dragging the Generated folder into Baldurs Gate 3\Data folder. Default installation locations as an example:
Steam: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Baldurs Gate 3
GOG: C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG Galaxy\Games\Baldurs Gate 3

Additional comments

For anyone looking to make their own mods, I used lslib to unpack the game files. You'll find thorough guides on how to create your own mods on the BG3 Wiki's Modding Resources page, highly recommend it!
Special thanks to Alana and lostsoul who helped me in the right direction on Larian's Discord to make this mod!
Also special thanks to Aetherpoint for reaching out to me with kindness, and guiding me on how to assemble a pak version of this mod!
If you're looking for a mod that removes dirt in a more immersive, less universal way, check out Shower More or Choose Your Stats for soap and water. Patch 4 has introduced native cleaning options, but leaving these links up to credit them for their work while it was lacking in the game.
