Chocapic13 Shaders Mod is the latest shader pack mod in Mineraft today that dramatically improves the effects and graphics of the game. As the name implies, It is an exceptional mod that provides excellent lightings and dynamic shadows (referred to as shaders) in the virtual world of Minecraft. Unlike the other mod, this latest shader pack offers a more interactive and engrossing effects of leaves, wind, lifelike sunshine and in-motion grass and waters, as if you are also waalkig in the playing field of Minecraft—thus making it more realistic that it seems before.
This shader pack is distinctive from other versions that are standalone, but it is more like a mod for already existing shaderpack. What’s unique about this shader mod is that, it has the power to optimize the performance of the game by adjusting numbers of Minecraft native Minecraft settings. With this mod, you’ll never suffer from the usual slow frame rates that is around 200 frames/second when playing standard mod in Minecraft (which has no any added graphic component). Chocapic13 Shaders Mod also comes with several beta versions and five different levels of finished mod such as Low, Medium, High, Ultra and Extreme. Few of the exciting features of this mod include the following:
- Parallax Occlusion Mapping (POM)
Chocapic13 Shaders Mod 1.11.2/1.7.10 provides a great parallax occlusion mapping—which is a technique that reduces the complexity of the geometric model, thus making turning your 2D texture into a 3D texture. Therefore, it makes the graphics of your game more realistic! Not only does it makes a lifelike field, but it also makes the graphic looks like HD. It also creates amazing lighting, real-time shadow effects and reflection, as if you are experiencing a real sunrays, godrays and water reflection.
Apart from the excellent parallax occlusion provided by Chocapic13, it also offers great bump mapping in your Minecraft game wherein computer graphics are enhanced to make rendered surface look much more realistic through the stimulation of the surface’s mall displacements—making the texture smooth and optimized. It also includes custom particles and in-motions components such as moving water, custom lava and water, and even creates a lifelike moist effect when raining. The simulation of these objects and realistic graphics is what makes Minecraft much more enjoyable!

About performance and sytem requirements :
This mod is very demanding and if you can’t run default minecraft correctly, don’t try to install this mod.
In my case with a GTX 670 i get around 50-60 fps with the extreme version, 75-80 with ultra,90-95 with high, 100-110 with medium and above 150 with low (cpu limited here) with a 16 chunks render distance. This can change a lot depending on the situation.
- Into the shaderpack folders there are .fsh and .vsh files. You can open them with any text editor, and there are different constant that you can change by yourself.
- You can increase the render resolution into the shaderpack settings. x1.42… correspond to SSAA x2, x2.0 to SSAA x4. However it kills the framerate.
- Shadow render resolution can be increased too here.
