Enhanced Blood Textures 3.6b

A blood overhaul mod

Bloodier combat experience with higher resolution and detailed textures. Additional features such as killmove animation spasms, blood drops when low health, damage based blood amount, blood pools, and green blood for spiders and oil for machines. Customize certain features with use of MCM and optional plugins.

*I am not allowed to post a separate download file link to the patches on Steam. You will need to download the file from Nexus and just move the DLC patch to your Skyrim folder.*

NOTE: patches are for 3.6c and will work with the current version here on Steam. I am unable to update the mod at this time.

Nexus version:

The full FAQ is found in the description tab for the Nexus version of this mod. Please read that first before posting issues. You will most likely find answers there so you don't have to wait for a reply.

You need Skyui and SKSE to use the MCM options. It is NOT required for the mod to work.

If you are not getting any blood you may need to make the decal amount graphic option higher. It is found in the Skyrim Launcher options.

This is not compatible with other blood mods. Expect gamesave bloat and crashes if you continue to use conflicting mods.

Use only one Compatibility patch!

ENB and lighting mods will have drastic changes to blood color depending on what setting they use. Want options to counter this? Use the Nexus version.

Detailed Features (these are not modular)
Main plugin (ESP):
-Separated combat blood splatters and hand placed blood decals
-Increase duration for weapon blood
-Increase size to hit splatters and added different wounds based on weapon type (Blade, Claw, Bow, Unarmed, Blunt)
-Changes to screen blood duration, size, and amount

-New high resolution blood textures to splatters, screen blood, wounds
-Increase red color to hit spurt animation
-High detail decapitation texture

New Features / Scripts:
-Increased blood amount during combat. Every hit now causes blood splatters
-Bleeding out and dying npcs will now produce blood drops
-Bleeding spurt animation from the neck after decapitation and neck slit killmove
-Low health blood drops(blood trail) Follow blood drops of those who fled the fight wounded
-Heavy and light splatter types depending on how much damage is done. Configurable to match damage mods
-Blood pooling that will react differently on softer surfaces (sand, dirt, ect.)
-More blood splatters and spurts from killmoves
-Green blood for spiders and chaurus
-Dwarven machines bleed oil
-Chance based spasm effect after killmove animations and decapitates
-Mod Configuration Menu to adjust certain aspects of the mod. This requires Skyui and SKSE

Optional files: (Found only on the Nexus version)
-Smaller blood Splatter, wound size, and amount
-Darker, brighter blood for use with all lighting mods
-No screen blood and blur screen blood optional files (or use with MCM menu)

How to Uninstall
You will need to do this or your game will crash on startup and it will make sure that the scripts will stop. This is a game engine issue which has been fixed in Fallout 4.

-Go to an indoor area where there are no blood splatters anywhere. If there is blood in the area previously you should first fast travel somewhere else. (If this is not done you may crash when the mod is uninstalled)
-Open console using the ~ key, and type the following:
stopquest zGoreEffectsPlayerQuest

If you have SkyUI you can just click the uninstall button in the MCM menu instead of typing in the commands on the top.

Clean Save
Only do this if you are experiencing mod issues. Read the FAQ before doing so.

Follow steps below:
-Type the following in the console. (~) key
stopquest zGoreEffectsPlayerQuest
-Go to an indoor area where there no blood splatters anywhere and possibly no other NPCs.
-Open console again (~) and type:
-Save game
-Quit the game
-Fully uninstall the mod and not just ticking the mod off.
-Go back into game and load that save
-Save the game again
-Now install the mod
-Load the save

Your MCM menu will be grayed out if you didn't make a clean save.

If blood doesn't appear on the ground or no blood pools:
-Check if your graphic setting for decal is on high (it most likely isn't)
-Uninstall the mod by following the uninstall method
-Check the scripts folder contains files that start with: zblood or zgore and delete them, if they exists
-Delete dD - Enhanced Blood Main.bsa in the data folder if it exists
-Install the mod with only the main plugin file active (no optional files) and disable all other mods
-Start the game and while in the main menu type in the console: coc whiterunorigin
-Attack npcs and see if it works

I am unable to post it here because of text on Steam

This mod is currently causing my game to CTD upon saving, loading, waiting, or changing areas. Any idea what could be causing it? I've loved it so far and don't want to unsub

Kinda sad that this is the only mod that I can't take out without the game not working

why is my game crashing when i kill more then 10 enemys in a row when i have your mod activated?

Very satisfying in a brutal way. Could there be an option to increase the length of time required for the blood to despawn? It's a little boring to see a cleared out vampire next without all the bloodstains of the monsters everywhere. Or really any dungeon with enemies.

Is tghis compatible with the Deadly Mutilations mod?
