Acid Shaders 1.17 / 1.16.5 → 1.6.2

Acid Shaders for Minecraft 1.17 / 1.16.5

The Acid Shaders mod is like many other shader mods in that it affects the way lights, shadows, and shade work in the world of Minecraft. It may have some issues working with the latest version of Minecraft (1.17) because Acid Shaders came around a few years ago, back before any of the new items, objects and models were added to the game. This shader pack doesn’t require any additional software or mods to work correctly, so you should be able to just install it and play with it, especially since it is not resource-intensive like many other shader packs.

Unlike many shader packs which focus on creating a sense of realism by making light bend and move in a more realistic way in Minecraft, Acid Shaders is more for people who want a surreal experience that breaks away from reality. You can immediately see this in the psychedelic effects which occur on objects and environmental aspects that are far away from the player, or you. The farther you are from something, the more distorted it becomes thanks to this shader pack, which is doubtless what inspired the name Acid Shaders. Playing Minecraft with this enabled is almost like being on drugs.

Getting back to the requirements, though, GLSL Acid Shaders is actually pretty easy for most players to use. As the author has said before, if you can run Minecraft without issues, then you should be able to run Minecraft with Acid Shaders installed and get the improved visuals without suffering a major hit to performance and rendering speeds. This is not a resource-intensive shader pack like some others, but that is only because it doesn’t focus on lighting and shadow effects so much as distorting the landscape and altering the player’s perception of the world surrounding them in a different way.

If you’re looking for an interesting take on the same old Minecraft gameplay, you might really like the Acid Shaders shader mod. It makes the world look disturbing in a sense, and it will definitely make you do double-takes, stop to blink, and repeatedly ask yourself if what you’re seeing on the screen is what’s actually happening in the game. With low resource requirements, pretty much anyone who can play Minecraft can use Acid Shaders. However, because Acid Shaders doesn’t really work like most shader packs, many users will probably want to steer clear of it for something more like what they expect.

Acid Shaders — Changelogs

R6
  • Added the sky back into the background.
R5
  • Reformatted some more code.
  • Fixed the block outline bug. The transformation needs to be done inside gbuffers_basic, however doing so will cause the transformation to apply to all the gbuffers, so I added programs for most of the gbuffers.
  • Made fog fancy instead of fast.
  • Collapsed the World Space edition into the Screen Space edition. You can now enable World Space by un-commenting lines in the following files: gbuffers_terrain.vsh, gbuffers_entities.vsh, and gbuffers_basic.vsh. You can also uncomment lines in the textured, textured_lit, and weather programs, but the difference is not really worth the 30 seconds it would take you.
  • Released Animal Crossing Shaders (would have abbreviated as AC Shaders, but that would get confused with ACid).
