SORA Shaders 1.19.1 → 1.7.10

SORA Shaders for Minecraft 1.19.1
FPS Cost: Low

Fans of our site might have seen our previous review of one of the most famous shader packs, ProjectLUMA. SORA Shaders is a new shader pack inspired directly from ProjectLUMA. As expressed by the developers, they have taken many of the popular elements and tweaked them for further performance upgrades. Additionally, they have added some new features and ideas of their own to further improve the popularity of the shader pack. There were certainly some shortcomings of the reference pack, and this was the goal of the developers, to improve on those flaws and create one of the most perfect shader packs. The end goal of SORA Shaders is to provide many different types of Minecraft gamers with a shader pack that compliments their gameplay style.

This is a more subtle shader pack. It does not use over-the-top visual adjustments to give the game a “movie-like” atmosphere, but rather gives slight visual boosts to improve your immersion into the game world. Many gamers know Minecraft to be one of the most simplistic gaming experiences to date, especially thanks to its minimal 8-bit design. With a shader pack such as SORA Shaders, you will find that a boost to the world lighting, shadows, and graphics performance makes for a remarkable upgrade to the game. Small adjustments to simple game details such as these combine together to immerse you into the adventure and thrill of surviving and building inside your own Minecraft world. A combination of all the improved visuals will set your game in an ultra-high visual mode where you can fully enjoy the artistry and feeling of gaming within Minecraft.

Along with some of the lighting, visual upgrades and new elements, one of the biggest changes is to the water within the game world. They have included a new texture for the water to give it a more natural feeling. The crystal clear waters allow you to really feel like you are in a more realistic game world. Many gamers asked for new water shaders and others prefer the default visuals of the blue ocean. Regardless of which one you choose, it is worth giving the new water visual enhancement within SORA Shaders a shot

Gamers need to keep in mind that to play and use SORA Shaders, you must have Optifine 1.19 or an older version installed in order to load up the shaders properly. After installing Optifine, you will be able to seamlessly use SORA Shaders within your Minecraft world.

why my sky at night didn’t appear?


I have a small problem with this shader… when I see the edges of the world makes a strange effect quite ugly, this a great pity because the shader is very beautiful. Is there a way to fix this problem? sorry for some write mistakes


I am using the latest Optifine 1.17.1 HD U G9:

The sky will occasionally glitch, switching to some other form of clouds for a fraction of a second. It is quite distracting, and it has gotten to the point where I thought it was a thunderstorm, but it was just raining and glitching to a bright sky. It will also occasionally have the sky go black. If I try to turn off the shaders while the sky is black, my game will crash.
