For a simple but effective mod, GLSL provides players with a new burst of shading, lighting and shadowing effects that effect how Minecraft players view the world. Not only does the mod bring new shaders that are realistic and beautiful, but the mod is compatible with many other mods that are being produced within the community, meaning that the once boring and dull shaders can be replaced without having to worry about compatibility with other addons that the player may be using. Despite the fact that a high-end graphics card is required to use the mod, the visual adaptation of the game that the GLSL Shaders mod brings is truly breath-taking. Players are given graphics that include reflection from water, rays of light from the sun and brilliant shadowing from all blocks in the game, making it visually perfect to the eye. The mod comes with ‘Dynamic Shadows’, where shadows from blocks move along as the player moves around blocks, leaving you stunned by the look of the game with the mod installed. Different user-created shaders packs can be installed along with the mod to allow the player to see the world of Minecraft through even more, custom-created perspectives, making the mod better than ever. Not only can the player choose which shader to use depending on their liking, but there are options that change shadowing and ‘buffer drawing’ to toy with, allowing the player to customize the mod deeply so that it is tailored to their personal likings specifically. The GLSL Shaders mod is packed full of endless possibilities when it comes to viewing the world of Minecraft, and that is why this mod is recommended and supported by the community. It is perfect for everybody due to the in-depth customizable options and shader packs that can be created too.
