Hello, I know this is a miniscule thing but I'm hoping i'm not the only one that has noticed this.
Ok so, I've been using forge for about a month now, and since I got it I've noticed that items look different from forge and optifine / vanilla.
This bug was only present for versions of forge on 1.8 Only, and was gone after 1.9 (image below of a comparison of the bow in 1.8 Forge and 1.8 vanilla)
Now, you might think that it might just be the mods I have, so I uninstalled all of my mods on my folder and ran forge raw, and this lighting bug still happened, I tried it with 16x, 32x, 64x, 128x, 256x texture packs and this lighting error was still there, I even tried putting on shaders and it was still there, now I was confused. nothing before or after forge 1.8-1.8.9 has this lighting bug in 1.7.10 and 1.6.4 and 1.12 forge do not have this as well, this also includes 1.16.5 The latest version at the time of writing this, Basically nothing has this same lighting bug : Labymod, Lunar, Badlion, PVP Lounge. None of them have this issue, and I've basically seen nobody notice this, and a way to confirm this is a forge exclusive thing is first using labymod stand alone, this was not a thing, but when I ran labymod as a forge mod, the lighting bug was still there!, does anybody know why this happens? (And no, this is not only bows that have this bug, every single item has this effect, also, I recently just realized that these items have the same lighting equivalent if you were to look directly up in vanilla)
Edit : on the left is the forge bow and on the right is the vanilla bow
