The TME Shaders by CrankerMan is just one of many different shader packs for Minecraft, but it still manages to stand out in one crucial way. Because it is still getting updates on a somewhat regular schedule, this shader pack works with the latest Minecraft versions. That’s a lot rarer than you might believe since there are tons of packs that don’t work with the latest version of the game. That combat update was huge and added a lot of new content to Minecraft – this is one of only a handful of shader packs that have updated accordingly.

TME Shaders is not about improving your frame rate or making the game run more smoothly. The TME part actually stands for Too Much Effects, because this shader adds plenty of special effects to Minecraft, which aren’t usually there. These include moving foliage on trees, realistic shadows that follow the clouds overhead, and more cool effects. Speaking of clouds, they look realistic and billowy with this shader pack installed, not at all like their normal, blocky shapes. Shadows bend and curve around corners, and different objects cast shadows of different lengths, all of which make Minecraft look great.

More than anything, the TME Shaders make the surfaces of textures pop like never before. Your stone bricks, wood planks, and other blocks will look more lively and 3D than normal, even without installing any high-resolution resource packs to make that happen. Basic game visuals look better with this mod installed. Naturally, this significantly increased level of graphics quality will make severe demands on your computer. A high-end GPU and lots of memory will be necessary for Minecraft to render and play at the same speed it usually does once you install the TME Shaders mod.

Now, if you’ve got a computer that can actually handle it, there’s no reason you shouldn’t try the TME Shaders mod. It’s one of the better shader packs available for Minecraft right now, but because it requires so many resources to work well, some players aren’t going to get the same experience as others. In a world where everyone had a high-end PC this wouldn’t be an issue, but because that’s not the world we live in, take a warning from this. There are no noticeable bugs or glitches, so you don’t have to worry about unwanted performance. This pack works great – if you can run it.

Has articles glitching through the top layers of the ground. Will not use because its not staying smooth, having clear blocks appear in lines is the opposite I need. Hopefully it is fixed and broadly stated with an update. Be nice but, ill look elsewhere.
