The Mr. Butternuss Shaders Pack is a high performance, low resource pack that makes a lot of nice changes to Minecraft’s visuals without placing a huge burden on the PC and gobbling up system resources in the process. Shader packs like these are inherently rare, since better visuals almost always mean a higher strain on a PC’s graphics processing unit, or GPU. But this thing looks great. You don’t need anything special to make Mr. Butternuss Shader Pack work – just the same old usual stuff like the original Shader Mod by Karyonix, along with a compatible version of Optifine.
One of the first things you’re likely to notice from Mr. Butternuss Shaders Mod is the movement in the grass and foliage of trees. These things seem to bob and bounce as if alive, or at least as if there’s a strong wind blowing constantly. This movement doesn’t seem to stop at any time, which is kind of unrealistic when you think about it, but it does a good job of catching the player’s eye and making the environment a little less boring. That said, if you’re looking for a highly realistic shader pack, then you’re going to want to just keep looking.
Integrated graphics will work if you keep the settings in Minecraft low, but Mr. Butternuss Shaders naturally looks best if you have a ton of extra system resources to throw at it. Because it was optimized as a low-resource shader pack, Mr. Butternuss Shader Pack does look pretty good, even without extra GPU power. But a good graphics card is the difference between “pretty good” graphics and “excellent” graphics when it comes to this shader pack, so bear that in mind. Just about anyone can use this shader pack, but better systems will yield better visuals.
If you’re a Minecraft player using an older PC or dated hardware, then you might see something you really like in Mr. Butternuss Shaders Pack, since it can be used even with limited resources. However, there are better looking shader packs out there. If you’ve got a machine capable of handling them, you may as well just leave this shader behind and go with the better ones. This pack is good overall, maybe even great when you consider that practically anyone who can play Minecraft can also use this pack, but there are still better shaders out there.
