Tough As Nails Mod

Tough As Nails Mod 1.17.1/1.16.5 is a survival mod that aims to increase difficulties through realistic features such as thirst and body temperature. In addition, there are other features that tie into it like a seasonal system with changing grass/foliage colors. Temperature shifting for snow in biomes is an adding feature in this mod.




Seasons are a major feature in Tough As Nails Mod. Not only do grass and foliage colors change between seasons, but temperatures shift, and in winter, snow can appear in some biomes that don’t normally get snow.

There are technically 12 seasons in Tough As Nails with each of the 4 seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter) having an Early, Mid, and Late sub-season. Each sub-season lasts for 7 in-game days by default, so a full year lasts for 84 in-game days.



Thirst is one of the major components of Tough As Nails. It is similar to hunger in which it will drop from moving around a lot. You also cannot sprint if your thirst is too low, and you will die of dehydration on Hard/Hardcore difficulties. There are a variety of ways to quench your thirst, from canteens to juices.


Body Temperature

Body Temperature is arguably the most prominent feature in Tough As Nails. Your body temperature is controlled by many different things, from the biome temperature, to the time of day, and more.


Lowered Starting Health

Lowered Starting Health is one of the primary features of Tough As Nails. Depending on the difficulty level, you will start with less health than normal.
