Stazza’s Super Shaders for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2/1.10.2

Stazza’s Super Shaders is a very popular shader pack for the original Shaders Mod by Karyonix, and there’s a good reason for this – it just works. While many shaders seem to be plagued by bugs and loaded with crappy content, confusing colors and objects that just won’t stop moving as if there’s a constant tornado making the world whirl around, you don’t get those things from Stazza’s Super Shaders. For a simple shader pack that focuses on lighting and shading elements rather than altering the world in weird ways, this fits the bill. If you’re looking for something like that, you found it.



Like many other shader packs, Stazza’s Super Shaders takes little bits and pieces from Chocapic13’s Shaders, which is one of the most popular and well-known shader packs for Minecraft to date. Some features from the KUDA Shaders pack have also made their way into here, including the dirty lens effect when standing in or around fire and improved lens flare visuals. The end product is something that’s bold, bright and beautiful, but not plagued by unnecessary colors and strange gradients of gray. More than anything, the lights, shadows and textures look natural, which makes this a realistic shader pack.



Requirements for Stazza’s Super Shaders pack are relatively high, and even higher when talking about the Ultra version of the mod, which is one of the most demanding shader packs ever. There’s no way you’ll be able to use Stazza’s Super Shaders while relying on integrated Intel graphics, so you’re going to need a good GPU and you’re going to need to make sure it’s compatible too. Additions like variable penumbra shadows and enhanced bloom effects and specular lighting during rainy weather, this shader pack just makes it easier to see a lot of things in Minecraft when you normally wouldn’t be able to.



Surely, some players will consider this cheating, but how many times have you been out in a rainstorm and become totally blind to what was around you? The rain would have to be coming down pretty hard for that to happen, but that’s exactly what happens whenever it rains at all in Minecraft, and Stazza’s Super Shaders makes the bold move of fixing that issue. With no major bugs, glitches or errors to worry about and regular updates still coming along every few months, this is definitely one of the better shader packs out there, and it comes highly recommended.

      Yee, try directing to Video Settings > Shaders > Shader Options > Clouds > Clouds_LQ
      Now, for me everything went dark when I turned the Low Quality clouds option on, if you have it on, try turning it off. I don’t have the exact same problem as I can’t see anything at all, but you can try this! Also, I seemed to get problems when not having Fog: On, so you can try turning fog on if you haven’t already.

      I have no idea if this will help, and I’m just a filthy casual that just started using this shader, however I like to mix around with the settings, and I think this *could* be the problem. Hope it helps!
