CrankerMan’s TME Shaders for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2/1.10.2/1.9.4

The TME Shaders mod by CrankerMan is just one of many different shader mods for Minecraft, but it still manages to stand out in one important way. Because it is still getting updates on a somewhat regular schedule, this shader pack works with Minecraft 1.12.2, 1.11.2, 1.10.2 and 1.9.4. That’s actually a lot rarer than you might believe, since there are literally tons of packs that don’t work with the latest version of the game. That combat update was huge and added a lot of new content to Minecraft – this is one of only a handful of shader packs which have updated accordingly.

TME Shaders is not about improving your frame rate or making the game run more smoothly. The TME part actually stands for Too Much Effects, because this shader adds plenty of special effects to Minecraft which aren’t normally there. These include moving foliage on trees, realistic shadows that follow the clouds overhead, and more cool effects. Speaking of clouds, they look realistic and billowy with this shader pack installed, not at all like their normal, blocky shapes. Shadows bend and curve around corners and different objects cast shadows of different lengths, all of which makes Minecraft look great.

More than anything, the TME Shaders mod 1.12.2 makes the surfaces of textures pop like never before. Your stone bricks, wood planks and other blocks will look more lively and 3D than normal, even without installing any high resolution resource packs to make that happen. Basic game visuals simply look better with this mod installed. Naturally, this greatly increased level of quality in the graphics will make some serious demands on your computer. A high-end GPU and lots of memory will be necessary for Minecraft to render and play at the same speed it normally does, once you install the TME Shaders mod.

Now, if you’ve got a computer that can actually handle it, there’s no reason you shouldn’t try the TME Shaders mod. It’s one of the better shader packs available for Minecraft right now, but because it requires so many resources to work well, some players aren’t going to get the same experience as others. In a world where everyone had a high-end PC this wouldn’t be an issue, but because that’s not the world we live in, take a warning from this. There are no noticeable bugs or glitches, so you don’t have to worry about unwanted performance. This pack works great – if you can run it.

    It can be said up front that this mod is not for being using integrated Intel graphics and it certainly isn’t for other low-end PCs at all; this mod is a demanding one, but it gives players a great-looking Minecraft world in exchange for the resources it needs to work properly.

    I’ve been having some problems with the transparency of stained glass blocks. When looking through the blocks, almost all the lighting effects and the coloration of the skybox disappears. I don’t know if it’s intentional or not but it’s really been bugging me.
    Examples:

    It only seems to happen with stained glass blocks and panes. Clear blocks/panes look just fine.

    yo. can you update this shadder. I only get about 25~30 fps with a noticeable delay when using this specific shadder. can you do something about it.

  4. Who knows?

    Idk how this works but the only link i can find leads to shaders mod and that leads to optifine and its really annoying! I already have Optifine and its starting to feel very very uncomfortable here!
    Plz respond!

    Has articles glitching through the top layers of the ground. Will not use because its not staying smooth, having clear blocks appear in lines is the opposite I need. Hopefully it is fixed and broadly stated with an update. Be nice but, ill look elsewhere.
