Sildurs Enhanced Default Shaders enhances the visuals of Minecraft while maintaining its original vanilla look. It adds visual effects like shadows, reflections, TAA, god rays, etc. Although it does not modify the visuals to a great degree, it is still highly customizable and has almost no effect on Minecraft’s performance. This means that this shaders pack will run smoothly even on older hardware. It download has two different presets to choose from:

  1. Sildur’s Enhanced Default Shaders Fast: Prioritizes FPS over visuals, suitable for low-end hardware.
  2. Sildur’s Enhanced Default Shaders Fancy: Adds all visual effects included in the shader pack for maximum visual fidelity.

Instead of downloading an older version like Enhanced Default Shaders 1.20, 1.17.1, 1.16.5, 1.14.3, 1.14.1, 1.14, etc. get the latest version. This will have all the features of the previous versions including support for the latest Minecraft JE version.

Note: Sildurs Vibrant Shaders is another shader mod by SildurFX. It modifies Minecraft to a great degree and is perfect if you find the Enhanced Default Shaders not fancy enough.
