Sin shards are used for crafting.

  • Story creation

  • Modifying body parts (adding skulls)

Modified body parts are just like normal body parts except they have more white and red skull icons. Made in a workshop. Even parts like Blood or Fat that never have 3 white skulls can be modified to have 3 white skulls. This allows you to create 65% efficiency zombie with 24 white skulls.

Things you could miss

You can now build chest inside church. You can keep prayers, incense and candles there and use them while your inventory is full.

All body parts have white and/or red skulls. Some of them have negative skulls. For example, blood has +1 red skull and -1 white skull. This mean if you put blood into body, it will add one red skull and will erase white skull. If you modify blood to add white skull, you will get modified blood with just +1 red skull. You can increase it up to +3 red skull, +3 white skull.
