logo  Effective 

Effective is a client-side Quilt mod that adds various visual and auditory effects lacking in Vanilla Minecraft to improve overall ambience and feel of the game. Currently, it adds water and lava splashes to entities falling in liquids, as well as cascade visual and sound effects.

See also the Illuminations documentation for more features that have been integrated into the mod.

Water Splashes


Lava Splashes have been removed in more recent versions

Lapis Lazuli Block Updates

Additional cascade effects can be created by updating Lapis Lazuli Blocks near the source of a water stream (for example by moving, placing or breaking them). The effects will then appear along the entire stream instead of solely the end.


Can I include this mod in a modpack?

Yes: You can. Go ahead, don’t bother asking. Please however provide credit and a link to either the GitHub repository or Curse Forge project page.

Can I use this mod on a vanilla server?

Yes: If you have installed this mod on your Minecraft client, you will be able to connect to vanilla Minecraft servers and the ambient effects will work as intended.

Can you port to Forge please? Backport to version X?
