There are many unique qualities found within the new AstraLex Shader pack for Minecraft. The end goal of this shader pack is very special; to allow content creators a vastly improved visual experience to make the best possible content or just to enjoy playing a better visual game experience.

Through use of the new AstraLex Shaders pack, Minecraft players will immediately see the major differences in the game world. Countless visual upgrades have been made to the game world, allowing for a very beautiful and immersive gaming experience.

Lighting during day and night time has been vastly improved. There are new god rays that appear during specific times of day or weather patterns. New sunshine and moon glow fill the world with a vibrant lighting feel that makes you feel more like you are inside the game.

There is a flood of visual performance upgrades that are available to be tweaked within the settings tool from Optifine. With a wide range of visual performance enhancements, gamers with high-end PCs will experience a completely different Minecraft experience.

As mentioned before, this shader pack was made with Minecraft content creators in mind. With fancy lighting and visual details, there is a new level of production for videos and Minecraft media. Give your audience a taste of movie-like atmospheres that are made up of exciting new visual elements seen nowhere else. Now, you can take your content creation to an all-new level with the exciting upgrades offered from the AstraLex Shader (BSL Shaders Edit).

Along with graphic upgrades like HDR, there are many depth of field and blur adjustments that give the game a more ‘movie-like appearance. Some of the features might not be ideal for standard gameplay and survival, but for content creation and scene building, these are fantastic details to take advantage of.

AstraLex Shaders can only be used by those who have Optifine 1.17.1 or an older version installed for the shaders to function properly. AstraLex Shaders can automatically be used within your Minecraft world once Optifine is installed.

To summarize, AstraLex provides a fantastic toolset to those that are looking to make more cinematic Minecraft content to share with a wider audience or just to enjoy on your favorite world or servers.

Note: AstraLex is a Minecraft Java Edition shader pack based on CaptTatsu’s BSL Shaders and Complementary.

Bug with torches :(


really nice but transparent textures are pure white
grass, torches and other things just have white boxes around them


Great shaderpack however idk if anyone else is getting this.. around my grass and a torch is all white, as if because it isnt a block the white is round it to make it look like a block if that makes sense ahha anyone help?
