GLSL Shaders Mod 1.10.2/1.9.4

There are very few mods that stand out from the other, however even GLSL Shaders Mod that do can be topped by even more extraordinary ones.


GLSL Shaders Mod adds shaders to Minecraft and add multiple draw buffers, shadow map, normal map, specular map. These things can be used to change appearance of Minecraft world. How it looks depends on selected shaderpack and some user settings.

There are very few mods that stand out from the other, however even the mods that do can be topped by even more extraordinary ones. Very few mods will continually be loathed forever by the entire user/player community of minecraft, and when this happens; the mod itself will continue to grow player, and feature wise. The GLSL Shaders mod for Minecraft it not only possibly one of the most unique, and extraordinary mods of all time; but it is also perhaps a very long awaited, fully developed, and well created mod in which implements spectacular shading and environmental animations to your game of Minecraft. The mod itself, developed by a very unique creator; has been developed to implement an original and beautiful looking shader into the game. The shader itself introduces a different type of lighting the game, initially enhancing the default brightness, before darkening the Shadows to create a wonderful effect.

The GLSL shaders mod is very GPU intensive, and requires a very decent computer to run it well. It is advised that the user be smart when choosing to install, and use this mod. A large amount of FPS (Frame-Rate per second) will be used in the entire process of using the mod.

    Wow. This mod isn’t worth jack. It doesn’t load shader packs correctly and it causes a crap ton of lag and errors. Do not download!

  • If you want shaders to work properly ulyiu have use the correct optifine mod as well the correct version of the shader.once you download the mod then need to download the shaders and put them in the shader folder for them to work.
