    About

    The GLSL Shaders Mod adds a deferred shading pipeline to Minecraft's rendering system which allows for custom shaders to be used with Minecraft. This mod was created by daxnitro, and modified by karyonix, id_miner, and me, Sonic Ether.

    You need to install this mod to use my shaderpack!




    Download the GLSL Shaders Mod

    Shaders Mod for use with Minecraft 1.7.5 or older



    How to Install

    Visit karyonix's thread for details on how to install the GLSL Shaders Mod.



    Setup (PLEASE READ)

    The Shaders Mod requires a bit of configuration and knowledge to use properly. This mod is used to power "shaderpacks" and is useless without them.

    Sonic Ether's Unbelievable Shaders is the only officially supported shaderpack because it is developed in tandem with the Shaders Mod itself. Most, if not all, other shaderpacks out there are derived from my work. Use SEUS if you want the newest and most efficient shader technology. Scroll down to the Sonic Ether's Unbelievable Shaders section of this post to download.

    To use a shaderpack, follow these instructions.




    1. Navigate to your .minecraft folder (google is your friend if you don't know how to do this).
    2. Create a new folder called shaderpacks (without capital letters) if it isn't already there.
    3. Go download my shaderpack "Sonic Ether's Unbelievable Shaders" from below and place the shaderpack in this directory.
    4. Valid shaderpacks include .fsh and .vsh files that the Shaders Mod reads to tell your GPU what to do during runtime. These files must be in a folder named shaders within any shaderpack. Shaderpacks may only be uncompressed folders or .zip files.

    The following is an example of the file layout possibilities for the shaderpack Sonic Ether's Unbelievable Shaders v10.1 Ultra
    .minecraft/shaderpacks/SEUS v10.1 Ultra/shaders/[.fsh and .vsh shader files here]
    or
    .minecraft/shaderpacks/SEUS v10.1 Ultra.zip/shaders/[.fsh and .vsh shader files here]

    If this layout is not respected, your installed shaderpacks will not work. This is the
    should check if your game looks like vanilla Minecraft.

    5. In Minecraft, go to Options > Shaders. Here you will see a list of your currently installed shaderpacks. Select a shaderpack by clicking on it.

    6. In Options > Shaders, enable "tweakBlockDamage", and disable "CloudShadow"
    7. In Options > Shaders, make sure that "OldLighting" is off

    Downloads

    LATEST:

    SEUS v10.1

    SEUS v10.1 Lite Coming Soon...


    Some issues have been fixed from Preview 1. Some new features have been added.
    -Puddles form when it rains and create reflections. This effect is meant to be seen when using a resource pack with normal maps. Go download ChromaHills which has normal maps.
    -New procedural clouds rendered directly in the sky and in reflections (transcending screen-space)
    -Cloud shadows. When clouds are covering the sun, direct sunlight dims.
    -Torchlight color is much more mellow and less orange.
    -Better specular highlights from sunlight when a texture pack with specular maps is used.
    -"Smooth lighting" reverted back to old rendering mode.
    -Tonemapping adjustments
    -Overall less harsh outdoor lighting

    This preview version still has some issues but is overall faster and improved over v10.0. A full release of v10.1 will be released soon. It has not been tested for use with OptiFine.


    LEGACY VERSIONS:




    Installation Instructions (PLEASE READ)







    1. Download and install the GLSL Shaders Mod. You'll find installation instructions and download links above.
    2. Download a SEUS shaderpack from the Downloads section above.
    3. The .zip file that you download is in proper shaderpack format. Simply copy the .zip file to your .minecraft/shaderpacks folder.
    4. Select the shaderpack you installed from the Options > Shaders menu in Minecraft.
    5. Go to the Setup section above and read steps 5, 6, and 7. This is important for a bug-free visual experience.




    Tweaks

    Once the mod is properly installed, there are a few things you can do to ensure maximum performance.

    -Run the game in a smaller resolution in full-screen
    -Lower your render distance
    -When OptiFine is installed, try toggling "Options > Video Settings > Performance > Smooth FPS:". "ON" gives more responsive input and more steady fps, but likely lower maximum FPS.



    Reporting an Issue

    If this mod is giving you unusual results, please make sure that you installed everything correctly first.
    If you are using this mod on a Mac, I'm sorry to say that I am powerless to provide Mac support. I apologize.


    I can't help you if you don't provide these details:
    -Describe your issue thoroughly. Provide a screenshot or video if you can.
    -Describe your system specs. If you forget this step, I cannot help in any way.
    -Setup your SEUS Magic Launcher configuration and check "Enable Log" at the bottom left of the window. Save the configuration, run the game, and paste the log as a
    -Describe the shaderpack, GLSL Shaders mod version, and Minecraft version that you are running when encountering this issue.




    Special thanks again to daxnitro for his hard work in making this visual experience possible! Special thanks also to karyonix for updating GLSL Shaders and collaborating with me in this project! Post screenshots of your Minecraft world with unbelievable quality for everyone to see!

    I just tried it out. It is amazing! The finest work of a shader mod i have ever seen. It gives quite beautiful shadows and realism to minecraft especially on server which have huge buildings etc. I recommend this to anyone looking for a realism mod =D.

    Oh wow... Is there any way you can take multiple screenshots while walking forward or upload a video somewhere of what's going on? Kind of hard to pinpoint what might be causing that from just a few screens. Are there any correct shadows? Or are they all messed up? Are you running Windows?

    :o

    *Starts rocking backwards and forwards*
    We have gone t-to far. Man was not meant for this...




    I use a pile of other mods so I was surprised when this worked without a hitch. Purely amazing. My laptop hates me now though and I think I may have to move minecraft over to my desktop computer for the sack of a lagless experience. Does this support bump-mapped texture packs?

    EDIT 22/3/2012: Above texture pack is my WIP one. Hasn't been released and I'm a little too busy with Uni at the moment to finish off all that I wanted for a first release. Please don't message me about it. Thanks. :)

    Edit 16/9/2012 - It's released and called 'A Brush More Colour'. I dont want to post a link from someone else's thread so just search it.

    Well done, but the shadow are very buggy, But I think it comes from GLSL shaders, not from your shader.

    @pie90087: Try putting this file into your minecraft.jar/Shaders folder and overwrite the existing one in there and see if you get different results: Alternate Shadows

    @DarkVarano Indeed, the shadows are quite buggy. And yes, it's not my fault but I could hardly put blame on daxnitro, think about what he has created! I don't mind the bugginess for now, and he said he'll work extra hard to fix the shadows for the next update. I'm looking forward to that very much!

    @Grog ... ... That ... well my jaw dropped when I saw your screenshots. It looks incredible!! I'll start working on a version that supports bump mapping asap :smile.gif:

    It looks even better when you chuck on some of those higher resolution texture packs. 64x64s and 128x128s packs don't look out of place anymore but look right at home with these shaders on. Big call but I think we may have hit a new age in minecraft. One where minecraft can actually be described as a good looking game. :tongue.gif: Oh and I see what you mean when you mentioned shadows in the sky. Very unsettling having those dark shapes looming over you. haha

    That cheezburger? I ate it...twice

    This is amazing, thanks for making minecraft look great, anyone know if this will work with the water shader mod?

    EDIT: Anyone else find this crashes when they open a GUI window like a chest or the chat on multiplayer? Im using tekkit (multiplayer version of the technicpack) don't know if it may be to do with that, or it may be my 2011 macbook pros rubbish graphics card (Intel 3000HD 384mb memory shared with main memory(The only bad thing about my computer, why did apple choose such a pants graphics card?)) Anyway, my graphics card is listed as laggy but playable on the GLSL shaders wiki so i doubt it is that. I don't know where you find crash logs, if someone could tell me where they are, i'll post them.

    EDIT 2: Its now started to crash randomly, while I'm just walking around.

    water shader mod is incompatible with the glsl shader mod. hopefully the mod this is bassed on is updated to have water shaders.
