What is "Sildurs shaders"? Sildur's Shaders is an extension of GLSL shader mod. This shaderpack adds shadows, dynamic lighting, and waving grass, leaves and water to the game. Unlike other shaderpacks, Sildur's Shaders is designed to work on all graphics cards and computers, including Macs, while still delivering a great graphical experience. See below for screenshots and download links.

Agreement: (read this before downloading, you accept it by downloading!) You are not allowed to: - Rename any shaderpack and upload them as yours. - Modify my shaderpacks and upload them with your name on. - Provide mirrors by reuploading my shaderpacks. - Copy and paste code or whole files, (like gbuffers_water.vsh) into your shaderpack.
You are allowed to: - Create videos of it, linking this thread or my fb page would be great - Modifiy it for your own only - without sharing it online.
Put my shaderpack into the shaderpack folder in .minecraft/shaderpacks.
Go ingame to options -> shaderpacks and choose it from the list.
Almost ALL reflections(~reflection related things) are stored in composite1.fsh,
mostly found at the top to enable or disable.
Compatibility Basic shaders should work on almost all systems. Vibrant shaders supports Nvidia cards, certain AMD cards and Macs
(Intel is being worked on, a few got it working through, so you might still want to try it out).
Enable or Disable an effect To enable an effect, remove the 2 slashes (//) infront of something like: //#define Bloom -> #define Bloom To disable something add 2 slashes (//) infront of something like that: #define Bloom -> //#define Bloom
Where can I find more or other effects? Most effects are stored in final.fsh, some in composite.fsh. Reflections can be found in composite1.fsh and gbuffers_water.vsh Waving objects, Aether 2 and Thaumcraft support can be found in gbuffers_terrain.vsh
Parallax mapping It's stored in gbuffers_terrain.fsh, change this value #define POM_MAP_RES 64.0
to the texture pack size!
(It's not available in every Vibrant version and I sometimes have to drop it for other things, beside that it's pretty fps draining)

Credits\Thanks: Chocapic13 & Alexei, Vibrant shaders based on them.
Karyonix - Maintains and updates the GLSL mod, which without my shaderpack would not work.
Skype Testers - Helped me solve common bugs and problems.
General_Fail - Created and formatted a fancy new forum post.
N3rdFall, for this awesome new signature! De Delner, for indirectly giving me the idea for reflections through rain (wetness) and adding HDR.
Good to see a new topic... hopefully this one won't be closed down... if you know what I mean.
Private Mod Note
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
I have returned. A fire long lost has been rekindled, and it's burning bright - yet it is far from spreading or causing harm. The destructive properties have weakened - yet it remains a source of illumination.
Doing stuff I guess. VA, Storywriter, Rapper, Entertainer and thinker.
can u make a vid to install for mac? i have the profile forge on and in the mods folder i put shaders! but it only loaded 4 mods witch the extra one is hero brine
You need to download the GLSL mod and put the .jar in the mods folder, the shaderpack goes in to the shaderpacks folder. But I've got an outdated vid gonna put it in the main thread may it helps a bit.
