Do the standard lighting effects in Minecraft leave something to be desired? For most people, they do. Even with smooth lighting and graphics settings maxed out, everything still looks, well, blocky. Sildur’s Shaders mod is just one of many different shader mods which focus on improving the overall look of Minecraft by adding more realistic lighting effects. Light will roll around corners and cast realistic shadows, just like in real life, and the effects on Minecraft are instantly recognizable once you have installed this mod. Like other shaders, this mod requires a good bit of graphics processing power.
Sildur’s Vibrant Shaders:
Unlike other shaders which focus solely on lighting effects, Sildur’s Shaders mod also implements waving grass. It might not sound like much, but compared to the eerily still grass which is standard in Minecraft, the moving stuff gives the impression of a rolling breeze passing by. It makes the game more engrossing, and that’s good news for those of us who use Minecraft as a means of escape. Sunspots, lens flare, motion blur and other effects also help make Minecraft look more realistic when this mod is installed. Overall, the visuals of Minecraft will only improve with this mod installed, so try it out.

- Adjusted nether visuals to be more like vanilla (fog strength)
- Added metallic and polished reflections for blocks like iron, polished granite and an option to toggle it.
- Added support for reflective honeyblocks. (just like slimeblocks)
- Added Raytraced shadows and and option to toggle it. (requires shadows to be enabled)

can I NOT get forge?
it helps all your mods to work together
but if i don’t have any mods and just want the shaders brat
You just need to install Optifine ( but it not work on mod version)
You can download both optifine and shaders and connect them buy installing optifine and then connect the shaders installer to it….
how do u connect them?
i tried that and everything was Black
dpley smoshin bkur splay ughf ingot plp fish-top /slay craft=blokc
its my life what ever i want to do
I have been using the SEUS shaders mod but love this one much more.
I especially like the sun flares and deep colour of flowers etc especially at night time.
Great shader, well done
I’ve tried installing these shaders, but it redirects me to a totally different download screen, like iLivid. I’m reletively new to installing stuff like this for games like Minecraft, so if someone could point me in the right direction that would be great.
just go back to the page before that
I am new at downloading stuff too but I found a few videos on youtube about how to install shaders and mods (mod don’t seem to work for me :/). I managed to finally install a shader just now and this was the one.
My gravie is moving. Its look terible
I love the detail and I love the way everything looks, but with the moving blocks, it makes buildings look awful. Is there a way I can stop the motion?
Agree best shader but the motion Blur looks and makes the shader complete garbage.
I love this shaders so much
Hey, looks like there’s a bug. The shader seems to animate spruce wood blocks but doesn’t animate spruce leaves. Just thought I’d let you know.
When I open minecraft and go into options there is nothing that says ‘shaderpacks’. and I have created a shaderpack folder and put the download into it. I also downloaded and installed forge. Can someone please help me?
You need to create a folder named ‘shaderpacks’ No-caps or spaces in the .Minecraft directory.
you can easily get there by %Appdata% then selecting .Minecraft
Once you do that you can place the zip folder (not unzipped or unpacked) and voila.
it should show up in your options menu in Minecraft if you have installed the Shader mod correctly.
I did all of that, but it still doesn’t show.
I did all of what you said, but when I select the shaders pack, minecraft crashes.
What Graphix card do you have?
i have an GT740m sheader on med ?
Give it a minute
It always looks lime it crashes
It’s just loading without an animation I think
you have to got OPTIFINe!!!!
I know this is conpletely irelevant to this shader, but i cant seem to download the required mod: GlSl shaders. any help?
i have downloaded it and when i go onto minecraft to open it in the shaders button i click on it and it makes the plying screen blnk
Has anyone else dealt with some textures waving, allowing you to see some blue abyss beneath them? All cobblestone on my game ‘waves’ similar to water when using this mod.
There is indeed a problem with the blocks waving, as I read a comment before my spruce wood is waving but not the leaves. Also I am not very good at coding or maybe I am just not reading it right but to do the Mac lag fix it says to “enable this and disable #HQ_SHADOW_FILTER””, and I do not know how do that – maybe someone could help me as to where or how to disable or enable this?
I downloaded GLSL shaders mod and the Silders mod and its all fine until I try to equip it in the options menu. I equip it and launch one of my single player worlds but then the game crashes. Any ideas?
Same happened to me, unfortunately I have no idea what causes it
Occasional glitching on textures like the player texture (default skins and custom skins tend to go invisible, quitting to menu and re-entering the map seems to fix this occasionally) and horses are skinned as invisible with two floating ears, even on default Minecraft textures. Disabling shader and exiting to menu and entering the map again to try to fix the horses does not fix this, though when they take damage they temporarily return to normal during the damage animations and death animations while shader is disabled. Animals also glitch out like player model does, though switching texture packs returns them to normal (switching back to the texture pack that they glitched out on once animal texture returns won’t cause them to disappear again).
Could just be the shader mod and not the shader pack that’s causing it, though I myself am not sure. Just a heads up for you guys to look into this on your end.
I’m using the Lite version and default Minecraft textures (the one included with the game itself).
this isn’t working for me :/ i created the folder “shader packs” and put in the whole folder of texture and I’m not sure why it is not working can someone please help me?
You have to spell it “shaderpacks” with no spaces. Hopefully it works!
It needs to be spelled “shaderpacks”
Whenever I try to open the shader, my screen just turns completely white, can someone help me?
How can you enable the workaround because it is laggy for me (I’m on a mac)
I love this style but please:
– water in caves reflect sky
– particles when i break a block are always bright even at darkness
please fix this or tell me if there are some settings cause i love this pack!!!
Having an issue with the shaderpack. I run it on a multiplayer server 1.8.1, and when i launch the shaderpack it says “Invalid Program Composite, Invalid Program Composite 1, Invalid Program Final….. “Open GL 4.2.0- Build 10.18.10.3345 Intel HD(R) Graphics 4600” PLEASE Help. Any advice or solutions would be great

You should download another shaders pack like DocteurDreads Shaders and put it in the “shaderpacks” folder after you get the shaders mod core (GLSL). Have fun gaming!
Same here !!!!
The sky is black. Fix it ASAP please.

Finally i found a shaders wich i can record with without having 30 fps now i have 200+ fps!
When I run it everything is black and it says “[Shaders] Error: Invalid program composite.” Please Help!!!
If you happen to be using forge, download the “GLSL Shaders mod” then put the Glsl shaders in your “Mod folder” in .minecraft. If you don’t know how to do that hold windows+r then %appdata% enter. next click .minecraft then go to your mods folder, if you don’t have one make one. after that put the glsl shaders in your mods folder. then download this pack, if you don’t already have a “shaderpacks” folder in your .minecraft, make one! then put this shaderpack in your shaderpacks folder run minecraft on the forge your glsl shaders is (if your glsl shaders is 1.7.10 run 1.7.10 forge) once your mc is loaded click options then you should have a new option called “shaderpacks” click it then click “Sildurs Shaders” open it and enjoy! 🙂
NonForge: Download the Glsl Shaders mod, after downloaded place it in your desktop, run it and it should create a new profile called “(version-Shaders)”. then go to your .minecraft then make or use your shaderpacks folder, bring the downloaded sildurs shaders and put it in there. run minecraft, you should have a new option called “Shaderpacks” in your options, click it then click “sildurs shaders” open it and enjoy 🙂
Thank you for the information!
Once I installed the mod, I went to single player and
the game keeps crashing. Anybody has an issue like this?? (I am on a mac)
If you do have a solution to it please do tell me. I will be happy!

So far everything’s working fine. Except ,when I go to the shader menu, I’m etting three options: “none”, “internal”, and “shaders”. No matter which one I select and what settings I use, nothing changes at all. Can I get some help? I’m using the right version of the shader with the right version of Forge, along with the GLSL, which is also correct.
