Sildur’s Vibrant Shaders 1.21 / 1.20

The reality for most people is that there leaves something to be desired from the standard lighting effects in the famous video game of Minecraft. When smooth lighting and graphics have their settings well set out, everything still looks like its blocky. The presence of Sildurs shaders pack ensures that there is more focus on the improvement in the overall appearance of the Minecraft game. The light that rolls around the corners usually produces shadows that appear realistic and similar to what they appear like in real life. When you install this mod on the Minecraft game, the effects are immediately visible and readable when you are playing the game. Just like any other shader in a game, the installation of this mod requires an expert understanding of the processing power of graphics. However, the beauty is that the Sildur shader can focus on many options, unlike many shader packs that are in the market.

In today’s shaders market, most of the shaders have many limitations. For instance, many of them can only work on operating systems that are run on Microsoft and can only function on computers that have high specs and speed abilities. The Sildur’s Vibrant shaders pack can work on many operating systems in the market today and it doesn’t discriminate on the type of player that the user has. Also, there are various types of Sildur’s Shaders. For instance, there exists a set that is referred to as Vibrant Shaders. These vibrant shaders usually add graphics to the game thus making it more interesting for those who are playing it. They have different versions such as Lite, High, High motion blur, Medium, and extreme which a player can choose from depending on the one which they like. The player can also choose between basic and light shaders which can be attractive to people who have limited access to operating systems that have high processing capabilities.

    I’ve enabled Depth of Field but nothing happens when I focus on an object, is this a bug?

  2. Kejani

    Hey, I’m a little upset, this is listed in the tags and on the site as a 1.6.4 compatible shader pack, but there’s no download for pre-1.7 versions of the game. What the heck?

    1. Admin

      Shaders are designed differently than resource packs, so new versions of shaders will likely work fine on older versions of Minecraft. Just download and install, nothing to lose.

  3. FreddyMann

    Im trying to use it on lunar, but i cant obvs, could you make one for lunar?

  4. will

    No matter what I try- Optifine, iris etc. I cant get the shader to work. I follow all the instructions down to the T, and when I open it in my resource packs, select it, nothing happens. It wont load and Im really frustrated. Pls help?

    1. zach

      Im having the same problem, I can get other shaders to run but not this one. were u able to fix it?

  5. Arathi

    Is this something I can install server side? I have my own personal server running on Linux using James Chamber’s geyser to allow console and pc to play together. The install instructions appear to be for hosted servers using a GUI unless I’m reading wrong.

  6. help

    How to get the links to pe 1.19?

    1. Admin

      There is no PE version of this shader pack.

  7. Mr. Mobile

    How do you install? It’s so hard! BTW I’m on mobile

    1. Admin

      Java shaders cannot be installed on mobile devices. No shader packs of this quality currently exist for Bedrock Edition.

  8. ADAM

    Does this change the appearance of the sky?
    Because I have a resource pack that replaces the default sky with custom sky textures, and I wanted to make sure this wouldn’t cause issues with that

  9. Zerozenes

  12. ProgamingGarg

  13. GG Randomize

  14. Kr3xu

    The shaders is like rtx but for lower end pcs and the extreme version still runs smooth on a gtx 960 and the motion blur is smoother than any other motion blur I’ve seen in minecraft

  15. PRO

  16. Wilko

  17. help

    Anyone know how to remove the selection box around the block I’m looking at? It wasn’t there previously, save for an unobtrusive black outline, now it is various colors based on the block and it is really distracting. help.

    1. here2help

  20. ReptileRhys

    This is amazing. I have the lite version because my computer can’t run any great shaders. This was my first experience with RTX

    1. yospeed

  21. DarknSkull

        1. PETEandhisBEANS

          imagine not averaging 720fps cringe

          1. Dpad

            blud, 1080 fps if mid

  22. Jake

    It says that the fabulous setting isnt compatible. This shader is rubbish dont get.

  23. BluFox185

    Yo, This shader is great for my computer which can barely handle shaders.
    I run this and new default (resource pack) together and get slightly low performance, I recommend using optifine along-side. I run probably 30-40 fps average verses my max of 60 fps, Pretty amazing.
