DrDesten’s shader pack has godrays. It’s one of the first things you’ll notice if you start a new world after installing these shaders. They’re so well done that motes of dust are visible floating through the air, under the right circumstances. It’s not just the sun that glows brighter than usual though – all of the ores that can be chopped, except coal, are very vivid. They’re bright, which makes them easy to find when digging tunnels and caves. Gold, Redstone, iron, lapis and yes, even diamonds, are all easier to see, even under low light conditions. They look the best when reflecting light though, so bring along torches like normal.

Water reflections are a nice touch, but they’re dynamic. That means if the water ripples, like from someone jumping in and causing a splash, the reflections will ripple as well. It might sound like a small thing, but this is a big resource eater. DrDesten’s shaders can be adjusted to turn features on and off as wanted, so if the pack seems to slow things too much, try changing this setting first. The sun and moon are rounded, which doesn’t affect anything, but is nicer to look at than big blocks in the sky. Outlines around objects can be toggled on and off for players who aren’t sure what block they’re interacting with too. That’s not a graphics change so much, but it’s a great feature almost anyone can benefit from using.

DrDestens Shaders improve visuals in many ways, but the pack also adds some quality-of-life changes on top of that. You need Optifine or Iris to load it, like most shader packs, so get the latest version of Minecraft, DrDesten’s, and Optifine or Iris (v1.5+) for the best experience possible. The lack of shadow effects in DrDesten’s means middle and even low-range PC users can still use these shaders to upgrade their visuals.
