About this mod

Do you want detailed blood effects on actors and the player, but don't want ANY extra gameplay elements? Here's Just Blood.

If you're using Dirt and Blood and you're happy, then this mod is not for you. This is a SUPER lite implementation of the core blood mechanic of my other mod, achieved now with 0 scripts. This version has ONLY the visual effects for blood.

To get this out of the way: the original Dirt and Blood is already very light on resources. Performance should not be the main reason to drop the original mod. What's the difference then between the two?

- Blood effects on player and NPCs
- Blood effects get applied based on current health. The lower your health, the bloodier you/NPCS will be.
- Effects disappear as you heal up. Amount of blood on NPCs is now a good way to tell who is low in health, instead of looking at the HUD.
- Plug and play: no gameplay changes, effects purely visual only, no configuration needed
- No scripts, no scanning for NPCs, 0 performance hit

- Highly customizable MCM
- Player dirt/blood system more complex and independent from NPC effects
- Dirt and blood accumulates dynamically (Based on combat, after X days...)
- The worst stages of dirt and blood can affect prices, intimidation attempts, etc.
- Clean yourself via rain, water or washing animation (now supporting NPCs too)
- NPCs can look dirty depending on their professions
- Hair/Beard Growth Reminders
- Light implementation

So which one should you choose? Well, it's entirely up to you! If you really have 0 interest in the extra features and just want more bloody battles, then choose Just Blood, if you like the extra fluff, choose Dirt and Blood.

- Spell Perk Item Distributor (Nothing to set up from your side, you just install this like any other mod and press play)

- Enhanced Blood Textures complements this mod well. 
- Compatible with everything. Blood retextures for Dirt and Blood will work here too. Other mods that handle dirtiness for the player should be compatible too.
Not compatible with the main version of Dirt and Blood (duh)


  • Will this new implementation come to the main Dirt and Blood?
Yes, I'm working on it!  NPC dirt/blood will use the new LITE approach in the upcoming 2.0 version, but all player related dirt/blood features will continue being handled differently than NPCs. The new approach will make D&B lighter on resources, without affecting any of the current features. Win-win!

  • Can I use this with another "Dirt" mod? Can I use this with Enhanced Blood Textures?
Looks like someone didn't read the section about compatibility above! Answer is yes, compatible with everything.

  • My PC is on fire! I have lost a leg after installing this mod! Your mod ruined my life!
This just adds an overlay effect on top of any hurt NPC, there's not a single script and this should have 0 performance hit, unless you install a 4K retexture mod for the blood. You might want to check the rest of your load order if you're having issues. (And call a doctor about your leg)

  • Your mod is not working!
Maybe YOU are not working! For real: Make sure you install SPID and its requirements. 

  • Do I get a prize for reading the description in full?
You should! You definitely should!! All I can offer though is a couple of links to my other mods (below)... and maybe a sneak peek of my next mod? Thanks for reading the description :)
