  2. abyss

    What Ram is required to run this?

  3. science_kit

    Hay, in a video of your shaders, the author went to the world setting and moved a “world curve” slider. This is a feature of BSL?

  4. SammahJ

    Love the shader!
    But the birds in the sky (distant images) are a bit weird and distracting from the otherwise beautiful vista.
    Is there anyway to switch off the birds?

  5. Liam

    I was on 5 fps the whole time lol

  6. kyle

    is there an easier way to do this like a direct download

    1. Admin

      We use official download links, we do not have rights to re-upload packs. For this particular pack, the link is technically a direct link. After clicking on the download link, you will be redirected to the official download page, but you don’t have to click anywhere there, the download will start automatically in a few seconds.

    For some reason when i download it and put it in the resorce packs file it doesnt show its there what do i do

    1. Admin

      Maybe because it’s not a resource pack, but a shader pack?)

  14. Zen

    For some reason this shader turns all letters on signs into blocks and I can’t read them at all. Any option to change / fix it myself? I looked inside the settings but there are so many options that I can’t find anything :/

      Shader packs are resource intensive. They will definitely lower fps.
