Explore and download gorgeous shader packs for Minecraft version 1.16.2. Minecraft shader packs are one of the must-have additions to the game if you want to feel a glimpse of realism in your gameplay. Depending on the type of shader pack you choose, they may introduce shadows, water animation, sun rays, fog, volumetric clouds and much more into Minecraft.
Rethinking Voxels is a mind blowing shader pack that satisfies the needs of a Minecraft player that seeks realistic lightning in the game. With its vanilla-like clouds, sun, moon and water, the shaderpack introduces extremely beautiful atmospherics into the game. It brings in beautiful night sky, covered with soft vanilla-like clouds and a sky full of stars, amazing water composition with its vanilla texture and Among the unique features, the realistic lightning is the most engaging characteristic of the shaderpack. Unlike vanilla lightning, you will not see light propagating in the direction it is casted at, which will now act mostly like a flashlight, lightning only those areas it is pointed at. Apart from that, the shaderpack has a lot to offer.
The visuals that this pack offers is very much different from other shaderpacks that you might have used. Sunflawer Shaders offers visuals that makes Minecraft look like a post apocalyptic world. This pack is actually a modified version of the BSL shaders by Capt Tatsu. The clouds, the colours, the water, the reflections, the shadows, etc are all very different from BSL. Also, it's worth mentioning that the pack is not very resource intensive. So if you have a low end PC, you can give this pack a try and you might actually be surprised to see that a pack with such high quality visuals gives you decent framerates. I personally had fun playing around with this pack along with a few mods that added a zombie apocalypse into the game.

While most shaderpacks try to make the game more visually enhanced with effects like depth of of field, motion blur, shadows, etc, Inception adds something unique.

Depth Of Field is the distance between the closest and farthest objects in a photo that appears acceptably sharp. This is an effect that many shderpacks like BSL and Complementary provides. But most people do not have a system that is powerful enough to run these shaders while giving good framerates. So here is a shaderpack that can give you only the depth of field effect, so that you can enjoy taking some focused screenshots and visuals. This pack makes it so that the camera will focus on whatever in-game body your cross hair is pointed to. Everything else will fall off into a gradual blur, which makes the body you are pointing at, more focused.
