When it comes to lighting in Minecraft there are a lot of mods to choose from. However one that stands out the most is MrMeep_x3's Shaders Mod due to its customization options.
MrMeep_X3’s Shaders mod may have an odd name but it gets it right where it counts: improving the lighting in Minecraft. It’s no big secret that the original lighting in Minecraft isn’t exactly revolutionary and there are a lot of mods out there that that provide basic features. This mod however, takes things to the next level.
This mod works to not only improve the lighting, but also to brighten up the game in general. You can also customize various things such as changing the color of the light, adjusting the realism of the light, and altering the shadows. It also works very well with other mods and resource packs too.
The way this shader pack works is pretty simple: it adds more shades of color to the lighting effects of the game. This allows for more realistic lighting as well as a ton of customization. Remember that improper installation or improper configurations can cause glitches.
One area in which the new shades are really noticeable is when the sunlight reflects onto water. The new shades really create a beautiful scene
This mod also fixes a few bugs as well, such as the “Bars in the sky” bug and the “Godrays FPS” problem. Though bug fixing isn’t the main focus of this mod, it is great to see the developers taking care of these issues.
It should also be mentioned that like with other shader mods it will need the GLSL shader mod to work properly. You need to make sure you install it first in order for MrMeep_x3’s Shaders mod to work the way it is supposed to.
- Fresnel effect
- Better water reflections
- Greater FPS (frames per second)
- Better water waves
- Better Underwater vision
MrMeep_x3's Shaders mod is definitely one of the best if you're looking for a great lighting/shader mod for Minecraft. The fact that it allows you to add customization is great and all the added bonus features make this a must have mod for the game. Just make sure that you follow the installation instructions and the instructions for configuring the shaders when you use them. This will prevent any errors or glitches.
