Settings & Versions

Minecraft

Recommended Version:  1.14.4      (works on any version between 1.13 and 1.14.4, but results might be different)

Optifine

For Minecraft 1.14.4 you need OptiFine 1.14.4 HD U F3            Usually, just use the latest version for the Minecraft version you are using.


Allocate more RAM

Really important, increase the RAM allocated to Minecraft to about 5GB (really depends on the map, settings, version you are using etc.)
On the image on the right, you can see how to do this.

  • Block Light Intesity: 5 - 10

Shader (required!)
This pack is optimised for the Shader "SEUS PTGI"  (It is not meant to be played without it)
Make sure to use the latest Shader Version (At the time of writing this: Version E8)
When a new shader update drops, I try to always make the textures compatible as fast as possible. 


Other VERY Important Settings:

  • Alternate Blocks: ON      This will make many blocks, especially leaves, grass, sand, etc. appear more natural.
    (Video Settings --> Details --> Bottom Right Corner

  • Graphics: Fancy    or in Details --> Trees: Fancy       
    This makes Leaves display correctly

  • Connected Textures: Fancy        Allows stuff like the sand overlay or connecting glass panes to work properly  
    (Video Settings --> Quality --> Connected Textures: Fancy

  • Geometry Trace quality:    0 !!!     
  • (In case bookshelfes are black or do not work)
    In the shader settings --> raytracing settings.

  • Texture Resolution:  
    Set to 1024 or 512, depending on the Version you are running
