How To Make Minecraft Look Like An Attractive Video Game From 2012

Minecraft has its charms, but let's face it, it's one ugly video game. There are tweaks you can use to improve things a little, but nothing like this mod that improves things a lot.

This video is from Sonic Ether's Unbelievable Shaders, a mod that adds effects (not just improved textures) to the game like realistic water, reflections and some gorgeous lighting.

Know that this mod is for use with actual gameplay, unlike, say, those awesome Game of Thrones Minecraft vids, which were fancied up outside of the game.

You can grab the mod at the link below.

    ha! Pony model... /) Nice water effects though :o

    Actually, I like the whole oldschool pixel3D look, plunkster. Voxel
    is rad.

    Trying to actually install Sonic Ether and OptiFine on a Mac was so
    frustrating that I ended up giving up on it :(

    He now needs to make the lava look as nice as the water.

    With a little imagination, even the standard textures become
    beautiful :).

    I don't think Ugly is the right word. There is a strange
    satisfaction in the way the world is constructed.

    I'm a huge advocate of the "faithful 32x32" texture pack. Just like
    normal MC, but a touch more detail.
