The Stracciatella Shaders tries to keep to vanilla Minecraft style, making only minor improvements. It is means to improve visuals without harming performance. So, better sunrises and sunsets are included. These are both coming from the updated sun and moon textures, which are closer to circular. Evenings allow for stars to be seen in the sky, and the light from them will give limited visibility when outdoors at night. It’s still safer to stay inside, though, since enemies will still spawn like normal. The sky backdrop can be customized, adding more stars and making them brighter or darker, as wanted. For every effect listed so far, the colors can be changed, too, allowing for crazy green sunrises or burning red stars. Stracciatella is perfect for making alien worlds and maps.

Stracciatella has a big focus on the sky and lighting effects related to the sky. But it doesn’t slack in other areas. The camera, or the player’s view, can be adjusted in many extra ways. The contrast, saturation, and brightness are normal, but the vibrance and vignette can also be raised and lowered. It’s a good tool for players who want to record video inside Minecraft – maybe on an alien world they created with Stracciatella shaders in mind. Water effects, like refraction in rain and reflection on water bodies like ponds and lakes, are of decent quality. Fog, including the color of the fog, can be turned on or off and adjusted for thickness. You get a lot of control over the weather with Stracciatella, but even without using that, it’s still a pretty set of shaders.

Installing Stracciatella shaders is easy. If you have Iris or Optifine already, just grab the pack. Otherwise, get version 1.12 or higher and put it in the roaming/Minecraft/shaderpacks folder. Look in AppData to find it. Minecraft 1.19 is recommended, as these shaders are getting regular updates, and new features are being tested or added.
