When precipitation occurs, Dynamic Surroundings Mod will generate a random storm intensity. This intensity will affect a variety of different things:

  • The “density” of the downfall.
  • Volume of sound.

Furthermore, deserts will experience dust storms, and the Nether will have its version of storms.


Auroras trigger at night when a player is standing in a “polar” biome such as Taiga or Ice Field. The size, shape, and coloration can change per Aurora spawned. The brightness of an Aurora is affected by the brightness of the Moon.

Biome Sounds

Biomes can have specific sounds that play while standing in them. The sound played can be different night or day, rain or shine. Forests have birds chirping, beaches have waves, and swamps have crickets.

Block Effects

Blocks can have a variety of effects, sound as well as visual. Examples:

  • Lava can form lava jets on the surface which spout fire or sparks.
  • Bubbles can rise from the bottom of lakes, oceans, and ponds.
  • Soul Sand can trigger demonic laughter.
  • Wooden planks can squeak when walked upon.
  • Dust motes can fall from various blocks.
  • Steam will rise from water because of nearby lava.
  • Fireflies will spawn at night around various plants in temperate biomes.

Footstep Acoustics

Presence Footsteps is integrated directly within Dynamic Surroundings. This feature generates different footstep sounds as the player walks and jumps. The sounds played are based upon the material that the player is standing on or moving through.

Player Effects

Various effects, both sound and visual, can be triggered or suppressed:

  • Damage/Heal pop offs. Whenever a mob gets hurt or is healed a pop-off particle will fly off around the mob indicating the amount of change.
