Shaders Mod 1.13.2 is a mod that prepares the game for the addition of shader to it. It works as a charger of shaders to the game. Shaders give an important improvement to the graphics and the visual image of the game leaving behind the old vintage and pixelated graphic characteristic of the game that many players first connected to. Much mod change the way the game is played, but this mod change the way you look at the game.

Shaders Mod Features

This mod is one unique because of the variety of shade it provides. It was very long awaited because its older versions contain mistakes, flaws and bugs, and it wasn’t compatible to Forge. Now it is fully developed and created to make better the experience of playing Minecraft with a great atmosphere shading and animation. It makes grey skies darker and the daylight brighter.

The mod has not been created by one modder but by a plenty of them which add, each one of  them, a grain of sand in order to make the game better with a great image playing with the light and darkness, providing the game a look of realism it does not have before, forgetting the old and boring pixelated and plain look it used to have.

How Does Minecraft Shaders Work

It contains many shaderpacks put together so the player will see the objects redesign everytime they start the game. It provides graphical changes to shadows, light, map drawing and weather thanks to the cooperation of several modders they give the player a huge amount of customization so he could decide how their world looks like with a deeper reality to the game image, its atmosphere and the whole environment. It adds a graphic update to draw buffers, normal map, shadow map and specular map which can change completely the Minecraft experience.

Compatibility

The latest version of this mod is the 2.4.12 that works with Minecraft 1.13. It has compatibility with Forge 1486. It is a massive improvement to the visual component so it requires a powerful processor to be able to work. A large amount of Frame-rate per second will be used in the process of using the mod.
