Blood Moon Range - Sets a random range that blood moons will happen. 0 is off. 3 would mean a blood moon can happen up to 3 days later than normal. Range is not +/-
Frequency means the minimum days of "Safe days" you will have. This means if you have it set to 3 then the blood moon cannot happen less than 3 days apart.
If we have, for example (this is not what our servers are set to), a Frequency of 7 and a Range of 5 then the blood moons would happen anywhere from day 7 to day 12. then when the BM happens, it recalculats for the the next BM. So you could have a BM on day 9, then the next one might be anywhere from day 16 to 21.
The settings are: Blood Moon Frequency (0, 1, 3, 7, 14, 30) Blood Moon Range (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 10, 14, 20)
They are numeric options, so you could do others values.
Combined you can do stuff like every 1-2, 1-4, 1-8, 3-7, 3-13, 7-11 days.
The new bloodmoon is calculated immediately after the current one finishes. The game does not remember past blood moons. However, because the range doesn’t subtract from the frequency you are always guaranteed to have no bloodmoon for whatever your frequency is set to. Frequency = 1 will always have the chance of getting BM two or more nights in a row whereas frequency = 3 will always give you a guaranteed 3 day reprieve between BM. Range simply adds on a random set of days to that.
