Bloom Lighting Resource Pack for Minecraft 1.8

Do you love shader packs but hate the lag it causes your system? Bloom Lighting allows you to experience shader without adding the shader mod, or dropping your FPS.


Created by thebaum64, Bloom Lighting is a resource pack that alters minecraft light bloom or “glow”. Bloom is a computer graphic effect common on games that uses dynamic range rendering (HDR) to produce certain effect similar to real-world cameras. And this pack, brings that certain effect to minecraft in a form of a simple resource pack.

The best part, this resource is compatible with other packs and thus therefore allows these packs to be used hand in hand.


However, since it uses advance HDR effects, not all graphics cards are supported. As a result, Minecraft instances with incompatible graphics card will result in a client crash.

Notice, however, that it does not replaces shaders packs’ features like moving grass and leaves, as this resource only adds the bloom effect making minecraft stunning.


Some shader packs can also work hand in hand with this resource pack to feature a more detailed and vibrant stunning look.

This resource pack add on is best used along with any HD resource pack of your choice and can go well with shaders packs and resource packs that promote realism.

And because this is just a resource pack that affects lighting, it has no impact (or close to none) to your client performance, and it works for the latest minecraft versions too! Even for the just released Minecraft 1.8.2 – certainly a must try.



Make sure to put the bloom lighting resource pack on top of any other resource pack you have.

You can use it in vanilla minecraft too and/or on top of the vanilla resource pack.
