kadirxo Shader for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2/1.10.2

The kadirxo Shader mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 by kadirxo is a little more than a year old now, but thanks to regular updates it works just fine with the latest release of Minecraft, which is version 1.9. The combat update changed a lot of things about Minecraft, and it added a bunch of new animations and items as well, all of which have proper shading and lighting effects in this particular shader pack. All you need to do is grab a compatible version of the GLSL Shaders Mod by Karyonix, install it, and then you’ll be ready to install kadirxo Shader V3 and start using it in game.

To get less variance in your FPS and make the game run more steadily and smoothly, even if that means locking your FPS a little lower so the game doesn’t jump and jerk around, you will also want to track down a compatible version of Optifine and make sure that’s installed too. There are the usual lighting and shading effects, as well as waving or moving tree foliage and grass, which make the world look more alive, as if winds are blowing and rattling everything. Shadows and underground spaces without light seem to be even darker than normal.

Of course, improved visuals and enhanced effects like these don’t just happen out of nowhere. The kadirxo Shader pack will place heavier burdens on your computer than it’s used to carrying when playing Minecraft, so you may notice some slowdown or hiccups unless you’ve got a good graphics card to support all these better graphics. Because Minecraft is a simplistic game, good here doesn’t mean the same thing as good for like, Crysis 3. A GT 500 series card or better will probably do the trick for you, but it would be foolish to rely on internal motherboard graphics to support this shader pack.

Overall the kadirxo Shader mod is definitely recommended. It has everything people look for in shader packs, and it’s also compatible with Minecraft 1.12.2 as well as several earlier versions of the game, so it’s got that wide range of usability that players often look for in their mods. There are the usual little bugs, like that thing where enchanted items don’t have their normal aura when holding them in your hand, but bugs like these tend to happen with like 95% of shader packs out there, so it’s no bad mark against the kadirxo Shader pack.

    Overall, great shader. If you’re looking for a really great lagless shader, I recommend this. It is very easy to use with Optifine and is a great shader in a natural world. However, if you are going into a cave or a house, you will need lots of light because the shadows are extremely dark. When I mean extreme, I mean extreme. I can’t see with my mac’s lighting all the way up and with game brightness 100%. I have searched for a setting that will tone down the shadows, and unfortunately, I cannot find one. My solution is in a world you can get torches, hold them. A very small circle of light will form around you and you can use that to see, but barely. Overall, the sun’s rays and leaves I am very fond of. Your character’s skin looks very good in the light as well. Water’s graphics are very detailed and are very bright underwater, brighter than the outside, which I think is interesting. So if you are looking for an easy shader and/or want a detailed one, I suggest this one. Have a great day, -bird

    This shader is horrible in the night, for iluminate with torchs and the shadows are very black.
    I love the water and sky but I need shaders that I can see the objects in the night
