Sanity: Descent into Madness Mod (1.20.1, 1.19.4) introduces a very interesting mechanic into your game – sanity, a reflection of your in-game character’s mental well-being. Just like keeping an eye on your health and hunger bars, maintaining a high level of sanity is vital for survival. Ignoring your character’s sanity can lead to dire consequences, including death.
A list of things that will reduce your sanity:
- Being hungry
- Consuming unhealthy food
- Getting wet
- Being near insane players
- Getting hurt
- Staying in the dark
- Being around monsters
- Having your movement restrained
- Listening to unsettling melodies
- Breaking infested blocks
- Trampling farmlands
- Hurting animals
- Letting your pet pass away
- Teleporting between dimensions
- Getting struck by lightning
- Provoking an enderman
Indulging in these activities will reduce your sanity over time. Alongside you will notice the colour fading away from your world. The images below show the gradual decrease in colour.
The climax of this mod’s unique features lies in the concept of hallucinations. As your character’s sanity deteriorates further, the creations of your own mind – hallucinations – become increasingly real. These manifestations of your character’s fears and anxieties start to attack you, blurring the lines between reality and imagination.
Furthermore, certain mobs in the game world react in accordance with your character’s unstable mental condition. This means your encounters and interactions with various creatures will change based on your sanity level, adding an unpredictable twist to your gameplay.
But don’t you worry. There are certain ways in which you can keep your in-game character sane. Indulging yourself in the following activities will keep you mentally stable:
- Staying fed
- Enjoying a company of your pet or sane player
- Listening to calming melodies
- Walking on dirt paths and carpets
- Being near campfires
- Spawning chickens from eggs
- Wearing a garland
- Earning advancements
- Breeding and shearing animals
- Trading with villagers
- Eating healthy food
- Potting flowers
Among these, wearing a garland is the easiest choice you have. You just need to pluck eight small flowers from your sorrounding and place them in a 3×3 crafting grid with the central slot empty. Wearing this garland will slow down your spiral into insanity.
One of the most commendable aspects of the Sanity Management Mod is its high level of configurability. Tailor the mod’s effects to your gaming preferences, adjusting parameters to suit your playstyle. Whether you prefer a more intense mental challenge or a gentler experience, this mod offers the flexibility to meet your desires.
