KUDA Shaders for Minecraft 1.13.2/1.12.2/1.11.2/1.10.2

The KUDA Shaders mod is one of the most popular shader packs of all time for Minecraft 1.13.2 and 1.12.2. This is because it’s a well-made addition, with very few bugs and a high degree of compatibility when it comes to various other popular mods, like Optifine. KUDA Shaders only recently made it out of Beta and into a real, full release, just earlier this month around January 30, 2018. The main reason there are so few bugs and so much compatibility is that KUDA Shaders was in development for so long. Now that it’s finally finished, there shouldn’t be any glitches or errors to worry about anymore.



With the first fully stable release of KUDA Shaders, many people are finally giving this shader pack a try and testing it out for themselves. With cool special effects like volumetric fog that seems to move and breathe like it’s a living thing, as well as great looking default textures without needless motion blur and other strange, unwanted effects, KUDA Shaders delivers just the right balance of things players want and things they don’t want. That is, it’s full of great features everyone likes, and nothing that people hate. That doesn’t mean it’s a perfect shader pack though, even with all that time in development.



The bloom effect seems a little weird sometimes, with light flares happening in places where you wouldn’t normally expect them to happen, or being bolder or more pronounced than you would imagine. But this is a relatively little “bad” thing compared to the heap of good things that KUDA Shaders does for players. This shader pack requires more system resources than most because of just how much it does, so you shouldn’t even try to use it with integrated graphics. A good graphics card is pretty much a necessity if you want to use this shader mod.



Because it does so many things so well, KUDA Shaders comes highly recommended, not just by this author but also by most the players who have tried it before. It’s come a long way now since its beta days and many issues have been ironed out and removed, so what you’re left with is a highly functional shader pack that simply makes Minecraft look better. KUDA Shaders still suffers from some of the same issues that plague other shaders though, like environmental shadows that seem to wiggle and move while the player is moving, but these issues are not enough to make this mod look bad.

  2. Dill

    Is it possible to just have a shader with the wavy foliage effect? That’s all I care about out of these. I don’t want lighting, sky, water, and crap like that.

  3. Math Machine

    hey, I’m sorry but I tried downloading this, and my computer shows that this file exists, but the file doesnt appear to be effecting minecraft forge AT ALL. I should note that im using my laptop, i know, im a monster for using a laptop

    With an i5 6500 and a rx 480, on ultra and a render distance of 8, I get around 60 fps. One thing that bothers me is that the cpu is at around 100% all the time. Is that normal? Also, after I exit minecraft, the process Java platform se binary (which has a 70% cpu usage) remains until I manually stop it. Is there any way to solve it?

      You have commented 4 times really fast… By the way in your other comment you said you love in Spanish and then and you only said that 12 days ago.

    Ad.fly breaks the Minecraft EULA, making this site and mod illegal. Replace links within 24 hours or be reported to Microsoft.

    Download hijacking sites. Was redirected to a dodgy shopping extension for chrome instead of a genuine download link for this pack. Are any working shader packs available?

  9. Gamer1

    Dont bother with this one. The hoops you have to jump through just to get to a download page, and it never completes. There’s got to be a less sleazier way to get paid.

    Your link goes through adf.ly which is no longer able to be used due to a redirect bug that covers the skip ad button.

    Really awesome pack you made! It’s in a perfect balance of being a good looking shader pack and not dropping me down to 10-15 fps.
    But I got a concern though. I’m playing with a bunch of other mods, one of them is Immersive Engineering. But it seems like when I have your pack enabled a few of the models gets slightly distorted. This is for almost all models from IE and other mod’s models.

    Sorry I’m writing here, I couldn’t find any kind of link to Github or from Google. Keep up the good work!

    Stop Using Adfly!!! It’s not that people don’t want ads, the PROBLEM is ADFLY tries to hijack your system. You are basically slapping everyone in their face using adfly.

    I have an issue where rain doesn’t appear over water. It rains about water but the particles seem to just stop at the top of water and appear again under it. Looking at water at about a 45 degree angle gives it a really weird look. I tried demonstrating this as best I could below (| = rain, ~ = water)

    • GamingWolfy5

      Hello! The reason for this is you have not went into shader settings then clicking something like “View folder” in the options. Otherwise go into the main Minecraft directory and make the folder yourself.

    GLSL shader mod official website is not working so I can’t download GLSL shader mod therefor can’t use this shader !!!
