The DMS Shaders mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 is a light weight Shader created by username DatWeirdPerson (DWP for short). Although the creator DWP was relatively new to coding when the pack was first created, he (or she?) learned a lot in the past and has now successfully produced a well-coded Shader pack. This Shader pack aims to provide quality graphics while trying to maintain a high FPS for the game.
Experience a dark fantasy medieval-themed Minecraft as you install this lightweight Shader pack made for PCs with low and medium specs.
What the DMS Shaders Pack is About
The Shader pack is about performance, it has minimal requirement so players with low-end PCs can still run it and enjoy the game with it.
Mild Dark Fantasy Touch
The pack features a mild dark-fantasy feel to it and features de-saturated, gloomy, and lightly faded visuals. The pack is perfect for medieval themed gameplay, but would also look good on gloomy sci-fi scenes.
Although the pack started with unoptimized code, the creator DWP gained experience and re-coded and optimized the codes for the Shader pack. With time, the pack slowly improved in performance and reduced the strain on the computer.
To optimized performance and make the pack usable for low-end computers while maintaining a solid gameplay, the pack features less effects and flashy visuals than your average Shader pack. However, this works well with its dark fantasy theme. Even with the minimized features, the pack still contains waving grass, waving waters, and more.
Should You Use It?
The pack features a mild dark fantasy themed that, in our opinion, looks quite nice even in vanilla Minecraft. The pack shines when combined with medieval type mods, structures, and worlds. Performance-wise, the DMS Shaders Pack is quite lightweight and does not eat up much of your computer’s resources. The pack is very playable on low-end computers and the graphics are also quite nice. If you are running a PC with low spec and want to try a Shader pack, or if you are looking for Shader pack that does not make your gameplay crawl, then we recommend trying the DMS Shaders Pack and see for yourself.
