Chocapic13’s Shaders 1.16 / 1.15

Many people find that the default lighting effects provided for the Minecraft game are not adequate. Even when the graphics settings of the computer are optimized, and the lighting is smooth, all the images in the game are block-like. Hence a large number of shader mods have been developed for the game, which try to improve the overall appearance of a Minecraft game by incorporating lighting effects which make it look more realistic. The Chocapic13’s Shaders pack is one of the many shader mods, and the benefits are easily visible after the mod is installed on the computer. The Chocapic13’s Shaders pack will make light cast shadows which are lifelike and also make corners look realistic. Instead of rendering shadows block wise, they are rendered in the direction of the light. The appearance of water, sky, particles, sun, moon and stars is also changed in this mod.

Like the stars and moon, the mod uses the light the sun naturally emits, to make it look real. Similar, the color, texture, reflection and animation of the water, sky and particles are changed in this mod. Though this shaders mod pack requires more power for processing graphics like other shader mods, it has many options available making it ideal for more users. There are major limitations while using most of the popular shaders packs since some will work only on top end computers or are only designed for the Windows operating system. However, this pack from Chocapic13 will function on almost all operating systems. Various editions of the mod are available so that a more players can use it whatever their computer processing power, operating system and Mine-craft build. Extreme, High, Lite, Low, Medium, Toaster and Ultra are some of the different versions available. Many players do not have a powerful processor for their computer, yet wish to try using shaders, and this Chocapic13 mod is the ideal way to start.
