Chocapic13’s Shaders 1.19.1 → 1.7

Chocapic13’s Shaders for Minecraft 1.19.1
FPS Cost: Low

Chocapic13’s Shaders mod is the baseline for many other shader mods out there, as you can learn just from checking a number of shader pack pages in places like Minecraft Forum. It is highly popular among shader pack developers because it is easy to work with, and many of the simplest things have already been taken care of, which leaves those developers time to work on the large changes and modifications they want to make. Thanks to updates as recent as February of 2021, Chocapic13’s Shaders work great with Minecraft 1.19.x, and old versions.

There are few shader packs with lighting effects as good as those you will see in Chocapic13’s Shaders, and that includes the other packs which were created using this one as a foundation. One of the best effects is actually the fog, which couples very well with dark and rainy nights to create a moody atmosphere which would be perfect for a horror map if you just played with some settings to keep the world constantly dark and stormy. The light and shadow effects aren’t limited to just a couple of biomes either – everywhere you go in Minecraft, right up to 1.18.x, you can see this mod at work.

Unlike many shader packs, you can actually make adjustments to the inner workings of Chocapic13’s Shaders, which will increase quality at the cost of performance and vice versa. Just look for the .fsh and .vsh files, open them with a text editing program like Notepad, and find the line for render resolution. This should be set to x1.42 by default, but you could jack it up as high as x2, or even x4, though you should expect a drop in frames for doing this unless you’re using a high-end PC. Most players should be able to use Chocapic13’s Shaders fresh after downloading.

Because of the high degree of control players get over the visuals in Chocapic13’s Shaders, this is one pack that is recommended for just about everyone. Low-end PC users will struggle to use this shader pack even in its default state, so there’s not much to look at here for players using weak GPUs or no GPU at all, as in the case of relying on integrated motherboard graphics. The only real issue seems to be that interior spaces, like the insides of houses, look dark even with a proper amount of lighting. This is no game-breaking bug though.

Different versions:

  • V6 should run on every Minecraft version.
  • V7, V8, and V9 require at least Optifine for 1.12.x


  • Use the latest available graphic driver.
  • Requires at least 500 pixels on each axis on the target resolution to work properly.
  • Leave Shadow quality to 1.00x in the Optifine menu, and use the shader options to change shadow resolution.
  • Set sky to On in Optifine settings.
  • Set “Old lighting” to Off or Default.
  • Resource Packs with the custom sky are usually not supported.
  • Connected overlay texture has issues when underwater.

When I use high preset or higher, enchanted items produce a blinding, white bloom effect.


Ich habe mir den 9.1 Beta 5 Shader runtergeladen. Leider habe ich am Himmel extrem helle Lichtflecken, die sind so stark, dass man kaum etwas sieht. Ist das ein Bug vielleicht?

Last edited 1 year ago by Myamaar

Chase Gwinn

Xavier Legault

whit the 1.17 updaye yhe chocapic13-v6-lite bug when you hold an enchanted item in your hand,it become blak like if he has no texture and it,s the same thing whit the lite chocapic13-v7


nothing in the settings its normal vannila pls help


I’ve been using High on 1.12.2 and it was fine for a while, but now does this thing where it refuses to render anything. My minimap is showing stuff, and certain areas I save and exit in will load, but it refuses to render anything if I port somewhere else, even though I’ve turned my render distance waaaaayyyy down. If anyone knows how to fix this other than constantly saving & exiting, let me know. My roommate plays my world on LAN all the time and this will grow to be quite the nuisancce, and I don’t want to go back to internal shaders.

its nice, but i have very low fps even without this and it lowers my fps to 5-10


It’s so great!●‿●😄I love it❤❤


Its my favorite shader and so much beautiful v7 extreme 300 fps thanks for creating this beautiful shader THANKS SO MUCH!!!


is there any texture packs recommended for this shader?


hey so i have been having a problem with the shader pack, well two problems.

The first version that i installed, V7, had the sky do some weird clipping, i would look down then up and as soon as i started to see the sky, it would start tearing.

The second problem was with V6, it looked like i wasnt tearing like the other version but when i looked around, i saw that anything below eye level on the skybox was whited out, and if i looked at some areas it would start flickering or go blank.

if anyone knows any way to solve these then that would help, i am now mainly using the V6 version so hopefully i get a fix for that one. also none of the settings in my optifine are changed at all so if it has something to do with that please let me know.


i want to keep best graphics

bruh bruh

This looks like that youtuber exploding tnt’s shader


Wow! this is the only mod-pack that looks really nice and doesn’t kill my computer, thanks so much!


What is that texture pack?


is this lag ?


Hey i’ve been using the shaders on v7 high, and lights have been clipping through the border of blocks, any help?


This is by far my favorite shaders pack, for ONE reason: the configurabilty. You can actually adjust the RGB and brightness values of light sources. Most shaders packs wind up with torch and lantern lights that are too yellow and / or too dim, and often makes glowstone blind you like the sun. It makes interiors flat out unpleasant. However, by adjusting to a 1.0 / .85 / .6 RGB value and a 2.0 brightness for torches, this pack can closely match the stock color scheme of Minecraft while enjoying all the other benefits of having shaders. Your house interior that looks great in stock Minecraft will still look great with these settings. And the performance is great; with a 980Ti on the Extreme version, I’m still getting 24 FPS. Maybe not quite ideal, but smooth enough to continue using.


I’m using it on 1.12.2 and it keeps giving me an error message about deffered3. How do I fix this?


OH MY GOD MY GAMING PC RUNS EXTREME AT 30FPS LOL I think it’s better at ultra but if not then high..

Natalie Olson

There is a section that tells you how to download this shader pack.


how do I fix the end and nether glitch with v6 lite?


Somethings wrong with the v6 shaders. There is always an infinite white square in the sky that even shows when it is nighttime and it gets really annoying. Does anyone know how to fix this?


i have 20 fps with an rtx 2070 wtf ???????


This has easily become one of my favorite shaders. Even the vanilla (before changes to the config) looks amazing. I’m running extreme on a gtx 1050ti and it looks gorgeous while still hitting 45fps, can’t wait to try it on a 1070ti. Love it!


Is this what i think it is.


Using it with VIVECRAFT, a VR mod for Minecraft. It looks so nice! 10/10 can recommend the shader.
Im using 1.13.2 with Optifine Ultra and Ultra shaders. My hardware is
i7 6900K – 8x 3.8Ghz (overclocked)
32 Gb DDR4
GTX 980 Ti
HTC Vive with wireless adapter


Alright! this person knows what there doing. this is the best shader Iv’e ever seen! Good job dude!


Mine looks nothing like any of these, when installed. It just looks like a blurry blown-out original minecraft. If there is a specific texture pack or other mods required to look like the demo video, then they really shouldn’t false advertise like that. That is like showing a Honda hatchback all tricked-out, but then selling someone a piece of crap stock hatchback.

Bushes don’t move. Trees don’t move. Grass doesn’t move. Water doesn’t reflect anything and is a horrible cyan color. There is no fog. Everything is blown-out and shadows are horribly overly dark. (Yes, all those settings are ON, and I have three Titan-Xp 12GB cards for rendering, 128GB DDR4 ram, and a 16-core processor. As is, it runs at 13FPS-20FPS with default settings and looks nothing like any of the videos I have ever seen.)

I am sure these guys know how to rewrite shaders, but they are horrible at releasing something that works as expected or installs correctly. Every shader-set is the same thing, but with just different tweaks.


I have this weird glitch where the sky is the ground and I was wondering of anyone knows how to fix it?


The Graphics pack is amazing. The only problem i have run into is that the enchantment on items doesn’t show up on weapons and on armour it does this weird shadowy effect where it just glitches.


•Hostile Mod Eyes glow in the Darkness [ex: Enderman, Spider]
•Items Shine depending on the material [ex: Iron, Gold, Diamonds often shining in bright areas]
•Natural Regeneration in Survival (I noticed when naturally healing up, the health bar sometimes went from a full heart back to a half heart in one frame and sometimes often skip health meaning gaining a Full Heart instead of a Half Heart upon Natural Regenerating)
•No Concerns, an awesome Shadder to have! Keep it up!


Hey i’m having this problem with chocapic v7 on high+ where it just screws with my screen


I downloaded the V7 Extreme and only the light effects worked no water or plants swaying please help


um, the trees and foliage doesnt sway and the water doesnt move, everythings normal besides the lighting


um, the trees and foliage doesnt sway, as well as the water is the same as the default, is there something i did wrong?


I have no sign that ihave that dam shaderpacks folder in my .minecraft also in saves folder. Asking for answers


Why is underwater so DARK??


I’m having a problem with enchanted armor. Whenever I enchant armor, it gets black lines all over it. Tried downloading the newest version of both optifine and the shader pack, but it didn’t help.

This is what it looks like:

I hope someone has a fix for this.


Bug in GTX 1060, no water effects


hi, I have been having a problem with my shaders. so whatever shader I use I get less than 20 fps with a 4gb 1050 ti and i5 max clock 3.5 base clock 2.5 which should run the game way better. when I play normal Minecraft I get around 320 fps with my fans running but when I use any shaders my fan does not activate and I feel like something is stopping it from the performance. I will be happy to know if someone could fix this problem thanks a lot.


Issue: I have been using the V7 High, but had to turn off “wavy plants” because, rather than making the leaves wavy, it is asking other things, like acacia logs/trunks, wavy. Is there a solution? I am running Optifine pre4 for 1.13. Could the conflict be there maybe? Thank you in advance!

Pedro Preciado

Slight issue… if im inside a building i made and i look out through a glass window, any water such as an ocean or lake that is in the view is invisible so I just see the blocks that should be under the water…


someone can help me ? i have a problem with v6 lite


By far, the extreme version with a gtx 1070 sc is one of the best shaders in the world. GOOD JOB!!!!


Everything listed above can be tweaked ingame, so be sure to check out those shader options!
