Few mods are as simple as the Shatter mod. In essence, this mod is a lot like the Bloody Mess perk you can find in the old PC Fallout games. With that, anything the player kills dies in the most violent and horrible way possible, usually exploding into meat chunks and leaving no traces a body was ever there to begin with. This mod does that, but in Minecraft, and about as well as you would expect considering the lack of any gore in the game. Anything the player kills will shatter into its pieces rather than just flashing red and disappearing into a cloud of smoke.
The animations are pretty fluid and there aren’t any moments where the game becomes jumpy because of this mod. It’s also kind of cool to see enemies like skeletons bursting into a pile of different bones when you kill them. It’s a little more realistic in that way. Other mobs that shouldn’t burst like that, such as cows, creepers and chickens all provide a slightly unsettling display when they die. Things just aren’t supposed to explode into pieces like that, whether they’re being torn apart by gunfire in an M-rated game or being punched into pieces in Minecraft.
The Shatter mod doesn’t really add any new content to Minecraft but it does add a number of custom animations. These shouldn’t interfere with any mods you already have installed, so feel free to try this one if it interests you. Shatter works with recent versions of the Minecraft client and that just makes downloading and installing it a breeze. If you’re looking for a little more violence in your Minecraft experience, this is a mod that will probably give you what you want. The Shatter mod makes every death in Minecraft an explosive display.
