The Bloominx Shaders mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 was first released to the Minecraft community a short time after the original KUDA shaders was launched. The former is a derivative of the latter, so if you’ve used KUDA shaders before then you’re probably going to see some things that look familiar in Bloominx Shaders. The author himself states that the point of this mod was to fiddle with light bloom effects and create more realistic ones, while also adding a sort of green filter to the world. Some inspiration for this mod also comes from Chocapic13’s Shaders, though nighttime lighting, fog and other effects have been updated.
As far as how it affects the world of Minecraft, the Bloominx Shaders mod does a handful of things you probably expect from any shader pack you see. It adds realistic reflections to the surface of water, so you can see yourself when running by the water’s edge, or catch a view of a tall building nearby if it’s close enough to the water. There are some realistic shadow effects which seem to work with the clouds in the sky creating shade for the world down below, which is pretty cool. There are custom clouds to go along with that as well.
Bloominx Shaders was designed by someone working with the constraints of Intel integrated graphics, the 4400 with the v4080 driver to be specific, so it is a relatively simplistic shader pack that most other Minecraft players should be able to use. You don’t need Optifine or some other special software to make it work. Naturally, higher GPU power will allow the shader pack to work even better, without the occasional hiccups or hardware lag you get when using integrated graphics for something like this. You’ll notice lots of bright lights and colors, but there aren’t many high-end visual effects here.
Because everything functions as intended and Bloominx Shaders pack works even with some Intel integrated graphics setups, this is one shader pack which is recommended for players. Even those who have low-end computers can still use it with some minor hardware lag, but players sporting better systems don’t need to worry at all about slowdown. There are some known bugs, like the custom clouds rendering incorrectly or not at all, but none of these really interfere with the overall function of the pack. If you’re looking for something to brighten up Minecraft while adding shadows, Bloominx Shaders might be it.
