If the default lighting in Minecraft is too sharp for you, you might want to try Stereo’s Default+Β shaders. It focuses on soft lighting effects to reduce glare, including some specially designed soft shadows. Where some shaders make noon unbearably bright, this one is subdued. Torches, lava buckets, or other light sources are necessary for any digging or night adventures, because the low light of evening is softened too. It’s almost impossible to see without extra lights. At least The Nether is easy to navigate because of added brightness on lava and lava particles. Bring a bucket with while caving and getting lost in the dark won’t be a problem.

These particle effects work for water too. You’ll get extra bubbles, moving waves, and somewhat blurry reflections. This can make fishing harder since watching for bubbles and ripples is key to catching fish. Stereo528’s Default Plus doesn’t do much besides this, with no changes to clouds or fog. It’s all about lighting and liquids, where these shaders excel. It works with the latest version of Optifine and Minecraft 1.19, so you don’t need to start a new world or change any game settings to use these shaders. Iris + Sodium makes some problems with Stereo’s shaders, so stick with Optifine, and you’ll be fine. Stereo’s Default+ v2.4 added support for Iris too.
