KUDA Shaders 1.17 / 1.16

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.

KUDA Shaders should be compatible with all of these Minecraft versions: 1.17.1 - 1.17 - 1.16.5 - 1.16.4 - 1.16.3 - 1.16.2 - 1.16.1 - 1.16 - 1.15.2 - 1.15.1 - 1.15 - 1.14.4 - 1.14.3 - 1.14.2 - 1.14 - 1.13.2 - 1.13.1 - 1.13 - 1.12.2 - 1.12 - 1.11.2 - 1.11 - 1.10.2 - 1.10 - 1.9 - 1.8.9 - 1.8.8 - 1.8.6 - 1.8.1 - 1.8 - 1.7.10 - 1.7.9 - 1.7.4 - 1.7

    Hello, it looks very nice!
    Sadly i have a problen, when i’m turning the word is not loading correctly, it needs to load a few seconds then i turn my vision.
    But ths is with any shader. Can anyone tell me how i can fix that?

      Probably your computer is a little too weak to run the shaders at full power. When the shaders need more power than your computer can give, the computer has to take longer to load the shaders. The best solution is probably to turn down the quality of the shaders a little, turn down your render distance in the video settings, or upgrade to another computer.

    The Second Problem i discribed before is just with certain Tools from Tinkers Construct. Like the hammer that mines in a 3 x 3 squar. But its also Weirdly just with the tinkers Construct hammers (Atleast with the Iron hammer)

    Runs pretty nice on my PC and looks fantastic. One thing, i am using this shaderpack with a bunch of mods for 1.16.5. (117 mods loaded).

    – First Problem i discovered, my Game curiously chrashes if i change to this shaderpack while i am in my World with some kind of Error 0. Runs fine if i change to this Shaderpack with no World loaded. Also no Problems when i load into the World.

    – Second Problem i discovered so far, the screen weirdly get bright white when i start to mine blocks with it. I discovered that Problem only in this Shaderspack so far. Soo might be a Problem from the Shaderspack or its a problem with my game but, like i said. discovered that problem only with this shaderpack soo sadly i cant use it in combination with my Modpack.

    – Third Problem i discovered, also with the newest Tinkers Construct Mod, for some reasons. as i loaded the shaderpack the first time. it weirdly changes the pictures from certain Tinkers Construct Parts into the weird black and violet pictures. Kinda like things the game could not load properly.

    Thats what i discovered so far. like i said could be a Problem with my Modpack or soo but no idea. If that is so maybe someone got an idea how to fix that xD

    Its still a very nice Shaderpack and the water is beautyful.

    it runs poorly on an intel pentium 3 and i heared that it runs very well on macbook air 2007 i get average 2-3 fps and my average is 27fps, i run on the lowest setings and i no work partclies are off and it laggiyeng isthere a way to fix plseas?

    1. Admin (resourcepack.net)

      The only solution is to upgrade your hardware.
      Shaders are resource intensive.

    2. NotStupid

      Is this a joke? Im curious because if not, please look up just anything on computers and shaders so you get an understanding as to why you are getting 2-3 fps with an intel pentium cpu. That thing is probably as old as my grandma, let alone a 2007 macbook air. Here I was as a child thinking I had it bad gaming on a 2011 dell laptop…
