Minecraft Extreme Graphics Achieved With Sonic Ether's Unbelivable Shaders

DSOGaming writes: "Neogaf user ‘Nibel’ spotted an amazing mod for Minecraft that updates the game’s graphics. This mod adds shaders to Minecraft in a post-process manner that simulate different effects that occur in the real-world in how light reacts with objects and with the human eye." (Minecraft, PC)

Very cool. However this would slow my PC to a crawl. Not sure what his setup is but even default minecraft can be taxing on a good system.

I'm not sure why Minecraft runs so well on my PC. My PC can barely run Skyrim on the lowest settings in 800x600 res.

Minecraft is not a very demanding game :P.

Ok on topic this mod looks awesome... Download time :)

Minecraft can either be fairly easy for a PC to handle or really difficult depending on what texture packs and mods you use. I can run BF3 on Ultra and still make my computer crash if I use a 512x texture pack and too high of other settings on Minecraft with no other mods involved.

Well, if you increase the draw-distance to "Quake", it can take a toll on many machines. That's like loading half of Panau on Just Cause 2.

Now that's how Minecraft should look like in the first place. Amazing work

Oh, some newbs disagreed with you. They like their blocks with some extra jaggies on the edge.

It's all right, we all have our preferences.

How the heck did this guy have such an amazing texture pack and be able to record it at the same time?

His PC must have been crunching itself :P

(We all know how demanding Minecraft is)

This looks better than GTA IV with Icenhancer! So photo-realistic!

the mod is amazing, it runs quite well on my PC and really shines during sunrise and sunset.

now we just need someone to port this over to C++ or similar so it runs half decent. Of course that may cause issues with mods and I doubt mojang would do that due to issues with linux and mac osx. But it would be nice to see a hobbiest do something of the sort.
yeah Java is not the best for games that need to use hardware at a low level..

If 720 was out M$ would charge $20 for this upgrade.

pc <3
