Continuum Shader Mod for Minecraft 1.11/1.10.2/1.9.4

Some mods will make no sense to a player who hasn’t in the past tried the source materials the mod was based upon. For instance, the Continuum Shader mod is actually an addition for another mod, Cody Darr’s Shaderpack, or SEUS. If you haven’t tried SEUS before, you probably won’t understand Continnum shaders, but besides that, Continuum won’t do anything for you. This add-on improves some features of the original shader mod, and it also increases the demands on your computer and its resources when it comes to rendering graphics and creating the light and shadow effects.

Basically, the Continuum Shaderpack mod just sharpens up some of the lighting effects found in SEUS. Because it was made specifically to work with SEUS, using this mod with any other shaderpack won’t yield any positive results. In fact, this may lead to unwanted performance issues, game crashes and the like. So, if you’re going to use Continuum, make sure you have the right shader pack as a base. Because of the demands of this mod, even the best computers available today will struggle to render Minecraft with a steady 60+ FPS. That doesn’t mean it’s impossible, but it will take some work.

We’re talking about using multiple, powerful graphics cards to render all the lighting effects, that kind of work. Some people might say this is taking shaders a little too far, that Minecraft was inherently supposed to be a simple game and by complicating things like this, you lose a little bit of that simple joy. Others, like those who would actually download and use the Continuum Shader mod, want to get as much as they possibly can out of their favorite voxel-based game. Whether you have a computer than can support it or not, this is definitely one of the best shader packs and mods for Minecraft today.

  1. As much as this mod looks insanely good, It’s very hard imagining people being able to run it. Since about half of people who play minecraft are kids under 12, A lot of player won’t be able to run it very well. But if you have minecraft, give it a go, it looks better then some big titles out there.

  2. Help me please.

    I downloaded the GLSL shader mod without forge because it kept crashing when I opened a world. I dowloaded the Continuum shader mod. When I try to put on the shader it says;
    OpenGL 4,3,0 – Build 10.18.14.4170
    Intel Intel(R) HD Graphics 4400
    [Shaders] Error : Invalid program gbuffers_textured
    [Shaders] Error : Invalid program gbuffers_textured_lit
    [Shaders] Error : Invalid program composite
    [Shaders] Error : Invalid program composite1
    [Shaders] Error : Invalid program composite2
    [Shaders] Error : Invalid program final
    OpenGL 4.3.0 – Build 10.18.14.4170
    Intel Intel(R) HD Graphics 4400
    Shaders initialized

    I’m not used with these kinds of things so please help me again.

    Thank you.

  3. It does look amazing, I’ll give it that. I’ll bet it’s even better with a 512x texture set and a shiny new GTX 1080. (I’m not spending US$600+ on a graphics card to play freaking Minecraft, but to each his/her own.)

    Performance isn’t that great, though. I’m on a 6-core Xeon X5650 with a GeForce GTX 660 Ti (EVGA FTW+, 1254 MHz OC, 3 GB VRAM), and even running on the low setting, my card struggles to reach 30 fps at 1080p. I’d rather run a less demanding shader and be able to use 4x antialiasing, but that’s just me. Part of me thinks it’s an OpenGL vs. DirectX thing and that if Minecraft were a DirectX 11/12 title, it’d run better, since I have to think the Nvidia Windows drivers are optimised more for DirectX than OpenGL.

    @Kruku (and other 9xxx card owners) you can forget about using this shader pack on your card. My 660 Ti only just runs it, I can’t imagine how bad performance would be on my old 260s or anything older than that.

    • Minecraft is heavily cpu dependent…a 1080 isnt going to make it insanely fast (minecraft runs off java so it eats RAM more than anything (but yes you will be able to run this, ive only have problems playing it with the latest drivers) I have GTX 970s in SLI
