Make your Minecraft spooky with this fantastic Shader pack called Magnificent Atmospheric Shaders mod. Created by username JinTheAkatsuki with the help of other developers for PC version of Minecraft, this Shader pack is created for one purpose only – to give the game a nice atmospheric feel by adding different fogs, suppressing light, and more.
What the Magnificent Atmospheric Shaders Mod Offers
The Magnificent Atmospheric Shaders pack focuses on changing the atmospheric ambiance of the game – the result is a beautiful Shader pack that makes the game a lot more spooky and challenging. Although the Shader pack is still in Alpha phase (early stages of development) it is still fully usable with a lot of gorgeous features unique the pack.
One thing you’ll notice after installing the pack is the heavy fog surrounding your character from a distance. This makes looking far ahead a bit difficult. In addition, fogs will gather on specific occasions like Storms, mornings, and more.
On cases where fogs are heavy around the player (like on a storm), looking ahead is difficult and challenging, and looking around is even harder. This makes the game more challenging as you won’t know where the monsters are coming from, or if you are still walking on the right path.
Dark and Creepy Shades
It is relatively safe on clear sunny days, but under the shade of a thick forest, it will be best to bring a torch with you to see where you’re going, and what’s coming for you.
Clear Black Nights
At the current state of the Magnificent Atmospheric Shaders mod 1.12.2/1.11.2, night time isn’t pretty at all – it is plain difficult and challenging. Darkness will engulf the land and even the moon gives off a faint light that’s not enough to see ahead. Torches become essential, and night times become extremely difficult.
Scary Sunsets, Epic Sunrises!
When the sun starts to set, it is best to find a nicely-lit location to avoid falling prey to the monsters that lurk in the dark. However, the darkness of the night will be broken by the epic-looking sunrise that will follow.
Should You Install It?
The pack is beautiful and yet it makes Minecraft twice as challenging. The Magnificent Atmospheric Shaders is for players who love the extra challenge and is not easily scared by the dark and the foggy scenes.
