For seriously enhanced lava graphics, the right shader pack is crucial. RedHat Shaders allows the bloom from lava to really illuminate surrounding areas. These dynamic lighting effects allow for light flickering along walls, with torches working similarly. The sense of realism can be seen in caves and out in the open world as well, thanks to improved sunrises and sunsets, along with reflections. Enhanced bloom, desaturation in low-light environments, and a sky full of stars all allow for smoother and warmer lighting, both in the evening and the morning. None of these are standard in Minecraft, and performance will probably take a hit, but Redhat Shaders are easy to customize too.

That means you can turn specific Redhat Shaders features on and off easily through a menu without any technical knowledge necessary. Just make sure you’re using an appropriate version of Minecraft, either 1.19 or older. You will also need either Optifine or Iris, as these loaders are necessary to use the Redhat shader pack. The lighting effects are superior to standard Minecraft, with realistic shadows that move along with the position of the sun in the sky, The sun and moon are rounded, too, looking more like their real-world counterparts. They allow for more a more natural appearance and really complement the updated fog effects. Overall, the improvements make a huge difference in the visual quality of the game.
