Current Version Changes
You don't need to do anything if you are updating from v3.5e. Just let the mod update when you first load your save game.

-Blood size adjustments

I had to reduced some texture sizes in order to be below the 100MB limit for the Steam 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.

The "dD - Enhanced Blood Mod.ini" file may not be in the right place and it should be moved from the skyrim folder into your data folder. This is an issue with the Workshop.

You need Skyui and SKSE to use the MCM options. It's 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.

Use only one Compatibility patch!

ENB, FXAA Injector, and lighting mods will have noticeable effects on blood color which may appear differently than intended. Use darker or brighter blood color optional files to adjust it. Different locations in the game will also alter the blood color such as indoor areas tend to be lighter than outdoors.

Do not optimize the nif files or the game will crash when you decap someone. You shouldn't be "optimizing" nif files in the first place.

How to Uninstall
-Go to an indoor area where there 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 zgoreeffectsnpcquest
stopquest zgoreeffectsnpcquestupdate

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 zGoreEffectsNPCQuest
Stopquest zGoreEffectsNPCQuestUpdate
stopquest zGoreEffectsPlayerQuest (This line is for version that is above 3.0 or use the MCM uninstall instead)
-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 greyed out if you didn't make a clean save.

If blood doesn't appear on the ground or no blood pools:
-Uninstall the mod
-Check if the scripts folder contains files that start with: zblood or zgore and delete them
-Delete dD - Enhanced Blood Main.bsa in the data folder if it exists
-Install the mod using only with 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 character limit

@Player 1
You set the Minimal Damage to a lower number not higher.
Player 1 Jan 24 @ 8:24pm 
Hello. How to increase the percentage of damage for which there are large splashes of blood ? 1 percent is very small for the high complexity of the game.
Katox Jan 23 @ 5:56am 
Still looks nice
