If you’re looking for a shader pack that displays decent shadow effects even for non-vanilla blocks and textures, it would be worthwhile to take a look at hoo00’s Shaders Pack B, which is the only version of the pack despite the name, which would lead people to believe there may be an A version of the pack out there. Maybe the pack is just named B? It’s hard to tell. This shader pack was designed to work with up to Minecraft 1.16.5.

The shadows and shading effects in hoo00’s Shaders are some of the best around, even if the lighting seems to suffer in some places. These shadows blend realistically, even when cast on or from blocks that don’t appear in vanilla Minecraft. This might seem like a little thing, but for any player who has ever seen the weirdness of strange shadows that move on their own and flicker, you will understand what a nice feature this is. Terrain shadows also remain still and do not move while the player moves, which is another issue with many shaders.

Requirements for hoo00’s Shaders Pack B are surprisingly meager, considering how much good the shader pack does for the visuals in Minecraft. It is an almost perfect blend of great visuals and performance, though it tends to lean towards the visuals, so you’ll want a decent GPU if you plan on using this. Something in the GT500 series or above would probably do the trick at median resolutions, but you’ll need something better to take your display up to enormous sizes like 2560×1080. Integrated Intel graphics aren’t going to do the job here.

For a shader pack with great shadow effects that aren’t buggy and glitch when players move around in the world, you could do a lot worse than hoo00’s Shaders Pack B. The only real complaint is that color saturation might be too high in some cases, though adjustments could be made to reduce this while increasing sun bleach and therefore fix this little issue. With no significant problems, bugs, or glitches, this shader mod is easy to install and use immediately, making it an excellent choice for players trying shader mods for the first time.

worked fine for me in a 1.12.2 modpack

for anyone having performance issue, try restarting, make sure to enable it from the main menu before loading a save game.
