Have you ever wanted to make your Minecraft game into a masterpiece of visual graphics? Minecraft has never looked perfect: from the very beginning, the game's "retro" graphics have put off some hardcore gaming fans. That has all changed with Sonic Ether's new mod for the game: a groundbreaking shader mod designed to make your Minecraft world look incredible.
The mod fits nicely with most versions of Minecraft, although some of its Java may not be 100% compatible with other mods.
Sonic Ether’s shader mod will bring new life to your Minecraft world, casting beautiful shadows and making caves darker and days brighter. Adding depth to Minecraft, this mod will make your crafting adventures even more intense.
There are a few bugs with the mod currently: occasionally blocks that are being broken down by the player may turn dark, or sunset may occur suddenly and without warning. However, all these issues are currently being worked on and will soon be obsolete. With a competent modding community rounding out the mod and improving it constantly, these concerns will soon be gone.
With this shader mod, you can experience Minecraft on a whole new level. Objects cast long, deep shadows, longer near twilight and darker in the middle of the day when the sun is strongest. Sunlight beams into caves to give you a better idea of what’s inside, and night goes from a pitch black mess to a lush world of dark blues and grays. With this kind of aesthetic quality added to your Minecraft world you can build castles and fortresses while surrounded by a deeply shadowed world of mystic features.
While most mods become heavily outdated and unusable over time, this shader mod has had a new version with every edition of Minecraft, becoming an ever-evolving feature that you can update at will with each new iteration of the Minecraft game. When updating, however, remember to pay your respect to the original modder, and remember to get it straight from the source over at Minecraftforums.
