Mod Features

Vibrant Shaders:

Here are some primary shaderpacks

Enhanced Default:

  • Crossprocessing (Can be disabled ingame if using optifine for 1.8.x, if disabled colors will look the same as default MC)
  • Water reflections from Vibrant shaders mixed with default MC texture. (See screenshots)
  • Shadows (Can be tweaked ingame if using optifine for 1.8.x)
  • Default Sun path (Can be changed ingame to sun path of vibrant shaders, if using optifine for 1.8.x)
  • Working night vision!
  • Work somewhat with stained glass/transparency (water reflections currently wont show up if looking through it)

Basic Shaders:
  • World Curvature (outdated)
  • Crossprocessing (Different colors, see screenshots.)
  • Motionblur
  • Crazy Acid shaders (outdated)
  • Depth of Field

Important informations:

Basic shaders should work on pretty much every system.
Vibrant shaders supports almost all GPUs sometimes you have to update your drivers if you run into issues.
Especially Intel HD gpus require the latest drivers provided by intel or else shaders might not work.
Reflections are mostly stored in composite1.fsh. Currently there’s only water reflections.
Other kind of reflections(specular mapping) will return together with Parallax mapping at some point.
Enable or Disable an effect
*Note, newer optifine versions for 1.8.9+ with the inbuild shadersmod allow you to enable or disable effects ingame while playing.
Just go to: options -> video settings -> shaders -> pick a shader from the list -> shader options.

To enable an effect, remove the 2 slashes (//) infront of something like:
//#define Bloom -> #define Bloom
To disable something add 2 slashes (//) infront of something like that:
#define Bloom -> //#define Bloom
Where can I find more or other effects?
Most effects are stored in final.fsh, some in composite.fsh.
Reflections can be found in composite1.fsh.
Waving objects can be found in gbuffers_terrain.vsh.

Change Logs:

Vibrant Shaders:

Vibrant v1.153:
– Improved lighting on mobs in caves.
– Fixed transparent mobs in nether for some intel and amd gpus.
– Fixed hand flickering on some amd gpus. (tested on hd6870, driver 16.2.1)
– Fixed nether sky being rendered ontop of transparent blocks.
– Applied a temporary fix for transparent blocks in nether for all systems. It depens on your GPU how well it works / looks.
– Applied a temporary fix for enchanted stuff, it shows the effect on some items but the colors are abit off. (requires optifine shadersmod, so 1.8+)
Thanks to Vico, Turtac and Digitalshadowhawk for testing.
*Know issues: Colors of stained glass and ice in nether might look abit off depending on the GPU (mostly amd and intel). Still released this patch because they are no longer invisible.
Temponary fixes will be resolved in the future, I have to rework the way things are rendered to fix everything correctly.
