yShaders 1.8.9 → 1.6.2

yShaders for Minecraft 1.8.9
FPS Cost: Low

This shader pack is abandoned and no longer receives updates.

The yShaders pack is rare among shader packs because it was actually designed to work with PCs where the user is relying on built-in graphics; you know, those integrated Intel HD graphics that are built right into the motherboard of Intel computers? Well, most shaders require a decent GPU and plenty of processing power to render the lights and shadows correctly, and that means that players without those things tend to be unable to use shader packs. That’s what the author of yShaders had in mind when he created this perfectly viable shader pack that works great, even without a GPU.

The only problem with yShaders is that it’s kind of difficult to find a download link for the pack. Because it borrows some content from Chocapic13’s Shaders and because that pack’s author changed his terms of service, many shader packs are getting taken down and having their download links removed, with yShaders being one of them. It’s a shame too because there really aren’t that many shader packs that work without a graphics card. It’s not like yShaders is ugly either – it features great lighting and realistic shadows, though it’s very sparse on things like reflections and moving objects.

That means you don’t really get any waves or ripples in water, and you don’t get true reflections either. You also won’t see the waving grass and leaves on trees which you see with many other shader packs which feature better graphics. But these things demand more system resources and yShaders had to find some way to cut back on demands while keeping performance up, so there’s not really anything you can do about it. Beggars can’t really be choosers, and for players who want shader packs but don’t have the graphics cards and other hardware to support them, they’re practically begging for help.

That’s where yShaders comes in. It’s a decent shader pack, nothing too great, but it does manage to improve the visuals in Minecraft by quite a bit. It also comes in three different versions, with the Lite, High and Ultra versions taking up more resources and offering a lower FPS rate as you move up from Lite towards Ultra. Its simplicity and wide usability make yShaders a great shader pack for anyone who has considered adding a shader to Minecraft before, but the real problem is tracking down a download link. You won’t get that here, but you may be able to find it elsewhere.
