Heart particles So, yeah, for a while, when I've hit any mob (be it a cow or a creeper), they emit heart particles instead of the standard hit particles. No resource pack, and although I am using shaders in the picture, the problem's been troubling me for many months, before I started using shaders. Only been on this computer though. I can't even honestly remember when it started.

I seem to remember the hit particle being some form of a cross, but on the off-chance this is the default (which I can't seem to find), that's fine.

  • Are you running mods? Disable them all, and see if its still happening. If not, its a mod. – Frank Jun 24 '17 at 2:54

Nope, that's totally correct.

What you're seeing is the damageIndicator particles. It is used when a mob is damaged by a strike (when you've timed your attack correctly, as opposed to spam-click post-1.10).
You may be confused because they are indeed very similar to the breeding particle, only darker (in terms of when using the default resource pack).

See http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Particles for a list of particles in the game.

For me the heart particals are the standard hit particals, and the particals you are talking about are probably the critical hit particals for me. I think it's probably just defalt.

I don't know how this happened to you. This might NOT work. You can give it a shot! :)

  1. Click Options on the startup menu.
  2. Click Video Settings in the Options menu.
  3. Try resetting the Particles setting to random stuff.

See if it works! :)
