Version 2.8 has all new functionality bought to you by the power of SKSE plugins - powerofthree's Papyrus Extender SSE 1.4 is now required.

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 (Humanoids and animals). Meat gets cooked.

Frost - bodies freeze solid/shatter after some time/become encased in case (Humanoids and animals).

Fear - skin becomes pale and hair turns white with shock (Humanoids only).

Shock - bodies spasm and char, explode into guts and goo, or turn flesh translucent and bones luminescent (Humanoids and animals only). Meat gets cooked.

Sun Damage - bodies disintegrate into ash (Humanoids only).

Drain - flesh strips away and bodies become desiccated or age rapidly (Humanoids only).

Poison - bodies turn sickly and show signs of cyanosis (Humanoids only).

Soul Trap - bodies are drained of life (Humanoids only).

An MCM menu has been added under FEC allowing you to customise many aspects of this mod.

1. This will only work on magiceffects that have the MagicDamageFire/Frost/Shock/MagicRitual keywords or spells from vanilla/DG/DB, so unfortunately custom spells without it will fail to register. It also checks for effect archetypes to check for fear and soul trap spells.

2. Only works on 100 NPCs and 100 animals at a time to avoid FPS issues.

  • You might experience a drop in FPS, especially when multiple NPCs are affected at once, but most systems should handle it fine.
  • Stack dumping may occur while hitting dead bodies with concentration spells, especially if multiple scripts are already running. If this is a regular occurrence, turn off effects from applying to dead bodies in the MCM.
