About this mod

Applies visual effects to NPCs and the player when killed by fire, frost, fear, lightning, drain, poison, sun damage and soultrap.

Permissions and credits


This mod applies VFX to bodies when killed by several effects. 

Fire - bodies self immolate and either combust into skeletons or become charred, leaving smoke behind. Works for the player, humanoids and animals.

Frost - bodies freeze alive and shatter after some time. Works for the player, humanoids and animals.

Fear - skin becomes pale and hair turns white with shock

Shock - bodies spasm and char. Works for the player, humanoids and animals.

Sun Damage - bodies burn up into ash. Works for humanoids.

Drain - bodies become desiccated. Works for humanoids.

Poison - bodies become sickly and show signs of poisoning. Works for the player and humanoids.

Soul Trap - bodies are drained of life. Works for humanoids.

An MCM menu has been added under FEC allowing you to customise many aspects of this mod, including choice between skeletons and burnt bodies when killed by fire, and whether bodies stay permanently frozen or shatter into bits after a while.

Version History



1. This will only work on magiceffects that have the MagicDamageFire/Frost/Shock keywords or spells from vanilla/DG/DB, so unfortunately custom spells without it will fail to register.

2. Only works on 77 NPCs and animals at a time to avoid FPS issues.

3. Incompatible with Burn Freeze Shock Effects, due to obvious reasons.
