Latest file for v1.17.3: 1-click install


My first mod, which I intend to expand upon: adds blood droplets when things get hurt (purely cosmetic/visual).

Works on players, animals, modded mobs etc. Even applies to animals being hunted by other animals, e.g. a fox killing a chicken will spawn blood droplets.


This mod features configuration support, allowing various aspects of the mod to be tweaked to your liking. The config is generated on world load and can be modified at "AppData\Roaming\VintagestoryData\ModConfig\XorberaxBlood.json".

Planned Features

  • [DONE 0.2.0] Add bleeding/blood trails so mobs will bleed over a duration, leaving a trail of blood along their path.
  • [DONE 0.3.0] Configuration support.
  • Configurable blood properties per entity/mob type (e.g. drifters can have different color blood than players, machinery, etc).

Known Issues

  • [Minor] Blood visuals currently affect all entities (if you hit straw dummies, blood particles will appear from them).

Update please!

💬 saxfone, Oct 13th 2023 at 1:22 PM

Warning all: this caused me SERIOUS issues on v1.18.12. Avoid until it's updated. Great mod though!

💬 Ryuu, Sep 20th 2023 at 5:06 AM

Are you still playing Xorberax ? If so, could you maybe look into updating this and adding compatibly so it works with the Butchering mod? :D Then we could really have something.... O.O

Seconding everyone asking for an update if at all possible! This is just what I need for my hunter. :'] It's so hard to track critters right now.

💬 Sammy_SMD, Jun 11th 2023 at 9:58 PM

Please update the mod 😥😥😥

💬 Kunndt, Jun 9th 2023 at 12:26 AM

This looks amazing especially if the blood stays on the ground for a little while so you can track animals that your hunting, hope it gets updated/fixed.

💬 Red_iKnight, May 12th 2023 at 5:16 AM

When I use this mod it has the side effect of making my health drain super fast if my hunger meter fully drains

💬 BlackJackal84, Apr 30th 2023 at 2:36 PM

Hello, can you tell me if this mod will be updated? Or has its creator abandoned it permanently?

💬 Edel_Recke, Apr 12th 2023 at 6:53 PM

Just for information: mod worked till 1.17.11! In 1.18.rc5 you die instantly by starving.

This is the second time that xorberax delivered an absolutely essential blood mod

Can't go back to playing without this

💬 Axebeard, Oct 17th 2022 at 4:35 AM

Absolutely love this mod.

Suggestion: an ability for the Hunter (or tied to an item like a monocle or something) that makes blood show up brighter/glowy for easier animal tracking.

Als maybe tie the length of time an animal bleeds to how low on HP they are or something?

💬 Shion, Sep 17th 2022 at 4:46 AM

Continuous bleeding effect? Would allow tracking down hurt animals.

💬 XorberaxAuthor, Sep 14th 2022 at 3:14 AM

Updated for VS 1.17.3!

💬 Skumlingen, Apr 19th 2022 at 12:19 PM

btw GREAT work and idea. i was literally thinking this exact thing and cursing animals that disappeared. fast foward a few hours i find this.

💬 WickedSchnitzel, Oct 25th 2021 at 9:12 AM

Could you add "IgnoredEntities" or something similar to the config, so that blood can be disabled for certain enemy types e.g. skeletons. Xorberax

💬 XorberaxAuthor, Aug 9th 2021 at 10:46 PM

Confirmed that v0.3.1 is working in VS 1.15.4!

💬 XorberaxAuthor, Jul 31st 2021 at 6:34 AM

I hope you all enjoy the mod! If you have any feature requests, let me know!
