What is the Kappa Shader?

It’s a shaderpack meant to achieve a realistic, but also “authentic” look instead of purely real-life-accurate visuals.

Why is it called “Kappa Shader”?

Idk the name just came up when discussing how I should call it and I stuck to it.

What are the features/effects that this shaderpack has?

  • dynamic shadows
  • wind effects
  • custom water
  • volumetric clouds
  • volumetric fog
  • 2d clouds
  • lens flares
  • reflections
  • resourcepack support
  • ACES tonemap
  • motionblur
  • depth of field
  • bloom
  • temporal anti aliasing
  • some more I forgot about right now
