GLSL Shaders Mod for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5

Shaders mods are an easy way to enhance the appearance of Minecraft. However, some shaders mods go above and beyond what’s expected of them. The GLSL Shaders mod, for example, allows for endless possibilities when it comes to graphical enhancements.

Using the GLSL Shaders mod, players have instant access to a number of different types of shaders, including cartoon shaders, dynamic shadows, specular mapping, and other noticeable improvements. Shaders can easily be downloaded and installed with the help of this mod, although GLSL Shaders also includes a number of different shaders by default.

Here are the graphical enhancement tools that GLSL Shaders adds into Minecraft:

-Enhanced water reflections, refractions, and specular effects

-Enhanced shadows (created by the angle of both the sun, the moon, and any other light sources)

-Depth-of-field effect that focuses on whatever the player is currently looking at

-Waving grass and other dynamic terrain features

-World curvature

Basically, GLSL Shaders allows players to easily enable or disable a number of different graphics settings in Minecraft. Players can customize the shaders to create whatever effects they would like, and some players have even been able to create a cool-looking cartoon effect:


In the mod creator’s own words, GLSL Shaders “sets up custom GLSL shaders for rendering in a flexible deferred shading pipeline.” Although a few effects are turned on by default, the mod leaves it up to other players to install or create their own shaders. It’s a useful tool for both modders and players alike.

GLSL Shaders 1.6 also works with OptiFine, which tends to be Minecraft’s most popular graphical enhancement mod. Whether you’re looking for waving grass effects or enhanced parallax occlusion and specular mapping, the GLSL Shaders mod makes Minecraft look better in a number of different ways. By combining it with OptiFine, the effects can be truly stunning.
