Realistic shaders for Minecraft 1.17.1 / 1.16.5 (CaptTatsus BSL)
By the name, it was already possible to understand what this shader is based on. And it immediately becomes obvious that the game will become much more realistic. The pack itself is quite interesting and unique. It has a nice and pleasant picture, somewhat unique, and most importantly with its own characteristics. It is worth saying right away that these shaders can be configured to absolutely 100%. Each player will be able to adjust everything to their desires and characteristics of the computer. Therefore, anyone who has been looking for realistic and convenient shaders for a long time can safely download and install these ones.
As mentioned above, the shaders are quite high-quality and well-developed. Their author has tried very hard to make realistic and intelligent rays from the sun. We need to make some clarifications. When the player is in the shade, the shaders immediately create various gaps and sun rays. This is done insanely realistic. It is also quite well optimized and thought out.
There are well-made clouds in this shader pack. They have a nice volume and a nice appearance. There is also a post-processing effect. For example, blur and nebula. These effects make the world more realistic, but take away the clarity of vision. Quite a subjective decision. But all this can be turned off and adjusted to your taste and color.
You can also find several modes in the settings in order to optimize the shader for the computer. There are only four of them. Beauty and realism don't change much, which is very cool. But the performance will grow significantly and make the picture smooth. Therefore, there are a lot of different things for a variety of computers. There are also several presets: Low, Medium and High. This is necessary for those who do not like to understand dozens of settings themselves in order to make a good optimization.
It is worth mentioning at the end that these shaders support the PBR effect. It will be disabled during installation. Therefore, you will have to go to the settings and manually enable it. There is also a possibility that you will need to configure it yourself, so that the necessary shader pack works correctly and clearly.
