If you haven’t heard of the KUDA Shaders, it’s one of the best Minecraft shader packs. The reason for it being amongst the most popular is because it’s very well made with extreme attention to detail. Bugs are uncommon, and it’s compatible with a variety of different Minecraft mods, Optifine, and such. KUDA Shaders has been officially released to the public on September 11. 2017. Its development took very long, because the developers didn’t want it to be full of bugs and to make it compatible with mods. The best thing about that is the fact that you shouldn’t experience bugs or glitches, and you won’t need to worry about such. Now that it’s fully stable, a lot of people are giving KUDA a try and have been busy testing it by themselves. It’s full of cool features like volumetric fog, it moves and breathes as if it’s a living creature, and the default textures look amazing. This shader pack makes the motion blur and other unwanted effects go away like they never existed. The KUDA Shader offers everything you would want in a shader pack, and gets rid of any unwanted effects in the process.
It does have it’s flaws, but they are brought to a bare minimum. The bloom effect doesn’t always do exactly what you would want it to do. Light flares do happen where you wouldn’t be expecting them, and they do occasionally have a more striking look to them than it’s supposed to be. Of course, this is a very minor detail and it’s barely visible. Compared to the things that KUDA Shaders does to the overall experience of the game, it’s more than negligible. It does require a bit more system resources than other shaders, that’s because of all of the things it does, and how it does it. A good graphics card should do the job if you want to use KUDA Shaders. Because of its success in making the game feel much better, KUDA Shaders is highly recommended, not just by the author but also by the majority of players that have used it. The progress it has made between beta and the present is enormous. A lot of issues have been fixed, and we’re now left with a highly functional shader pack that does Minecraft wonders.
