Welcome

Dynamic Surroundings is a Minecraft Forge mod that alters the player’s visual and audible experience without changing game mechanics. The player has a high degree of control over their experience, and modpack authors can customize biome and block effects based on their need.

This set of documentation applies to Dynamic Surroundings v3.5+ for Minecraft 1.12.2+. Documentation for prior versions can be found here.

The design of Dynamic Surroundings permits it to run on a client without having the mod installed on the server. However, there will be limitations:

  • Player speech bubbles will not be displayed.
  • Village biome sounds will not play.
  • Weather render effects will not be coordinated across clients.
  • Battle Music will be limited (if configured)

New in version 3.5.4.0: Starting with version 3.5.4.0 it is possible to have the mod installed on a server, but not on the client. This will allow pack authors to include the mod in packs, and give players the ability to remove the mod based on their desires.
