When Minecraft was first released to the public, its unique visuals set it apart from the pack. However, as players began to build elaborate and picturesque structures, it became apparent that Minecraft’s graphics were a bit dated. Although this lent them a great deal of “8 bit charm,” many players found these graphics to be somewhat lacking. The Water Shader Mod for Minecraft sets out to improve one of the game’s most visible shortcomings- the appearance of its water.

Since the game passed into its final release state, players have been able to apply texture packs that customize and improve the overall appearance of the game world. Higher resolution tiles allow for rich visuals such as semi realistic grass, rock, wood and building materials. However, no matter how much definition was added to these tiles, the water always came across as pale and flat. Though it had some transparency, it lacked depth and realism. The Water Shader Mod for Minecraft uses 3D shader technology, which is supported by most modern video cards, to give water a realistic appearance.

Anyone who has spent a decent amount of time looking at water, which should include most people, is well aware of how reflective it can be. It is rare to look across a body of water and to be able to see all the way to the bottom. Almost always, light reflects off the surface, creating a mirror image of its surroundings. The Water Shader Mod for Minecraft accomplishes this quite well. However, as we know, water is rarely completely still. For this reason, the mod uses shaders to warp the surface, much like the reflections one would see on real water.

Especially when combined with high resolution texture packs, the Water Shader Mod for Minecraft adds a whole new visual dimension to this game’s graphics.

        It’s HIS mod, if anything we’re being selfish by taking this mod without giving him payment. He can code whatever he wants for himself, he doesn’t have to give us jack. Especially if you are gonna whine about it.
