Nostalgia Shaderpack

Nostalgia is a very beautiful shader pack which is released recently. Apart from having all the basic visual effects that most of the shaders include, it also comes with the amazing volumetric fog effects along with astonishing sun rays under the water(look ath the screenshots)! You will feel how unique the shaderpack is after playing it for few minutes. Below are some special features the shaderpack has: custom skybox and lighting colors dynamic shadows volumetric fog wind effects on foliage shader based vanilla styled clouds second layer of volumetric clouds nether and end support TAA and auto exposureNostalgia shader pack tends to keep default vanilla atmosphere of minecraft, so it just decorates it with a bunch of new effects where it lacks!


Complementary Shader Pack

The Complementary shader pack is one of the most breathtaking shader packs available today, and that is for a reason! Unlike other shaders for Minecraft, Complementary comes up with its unique style of shadows, fogs, and atmosphere in general. Once you dive into the water, you will discover yet another magnificent world, enriched with the sun rays coming from above, waving sea plants and several nicely glowing coral reefs. The night sky is a part of another story! It is realistic at the same time, yet dreamy. Just after the sunset, you will notice a gorgeous foggy horizon with a purple colour. At night, your sky will be covered with stars and beautiful volumetric visible clouds.I recommend you to try out this shader pack with biome mod The Biomes You Will Go and BetterEnd mods if you want to gain an additional bit of wonderful experience. It also provides a wide range of adjustable settings where you can take control over exposure, contrast, flare, DOF, vignette and etc. You can access them from options/video settings/shaders/shader options.With this shader pack, you will walk as if you are walking in the heavens and enjoy every moment of your game.

Are you tired of an ordinary Minecraft sky, which has nothing to offer apart from a couple of stars, sun and moon? Are you eager to make it much more attractive? If yes, then the Astralex shader pack is the optimal choice for you. The shader pack is pretty fresh and one reason why it stands up among other shader packs is that you will never observe such a magnificent night sky as these shaders can offer you. The Astralex shader pack is one of the most outstanding shader packs that not only changes your visuals but completely alters your game experience. It adds realistic camera movement, block indication, berserk mode and more. On the graphics side, the most obvious change is the gorgeous night sky, covered with stars, volumetric clouds, aurora. During the daytime, you will also be fascinated by sun rays, water animation, bloom effect. I also suggest you play around with a huge number of settings that this shader pack offers, so you can get the best of it. Make sure to visit the website of author for more info at
