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.

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.

Detailed Features (these are not modular)
Main plugin (ESP):
-Separated Hit splatters and static placed blood
-Allows different wounds based on weapon type

-No screen blood and blur screen blood optional files
-Screen blood changes to duration and amount using esps (Not needed if you have MCM)

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 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 greyed 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 character limit

been subscribed so long i dont remember what vanilla blood looks like. every time i slaughter a lot of bandits i walk around and admire all the glorious puddles of blood. thank you for this mod
Korvin Jun 7 @ 4:43am 
This mod made killing bandits far more satisfying. Kinda distracting though when blood everywhere in whiterun days after a vampire attack. They need a cleanup crew seriously...
