Continuum Shaders Mod is a cool shader pack created by the username dotModded. The shader pack is based largely on Cody Darr’s Shader pack, more commonly known as SEUS. With exclusive permission from the original mudpack owner, the pack features many modifications of Sonic Ether’s Unbelievable Shaders (SEUS). Although they basically have the same base codes and effects, Continuum Shaders feature many changes, optimizations, visual alterations, and more based on the preferences of the pack creator.
What the Shader Pack is About
Continuum Shaders is a full-scale graphics upgrade to the original Minecraft. In fact, it is comparable to the “Ultra” version of the SUES pack. This resource pack is very intensive on the GPU system and is incompatible with the default built-in Intel HD graphics.
Extreme AAA Graphics
The biggest selling point of this wonderful shader pack is its absolutely gorgeous graphics that can even be compared to other AAA games. The shader pack features ultra-realistic shading that looks absolutely brilliant in Minecraft. To top things off, this pack uses triple-A rendering techniques such as Volumetrics, Caustics, Global Illumination, and even Dynamic Weather.
SUES and more
The pack comes complete with all features from the original Sonic Ether’s Unbelievable Shader (SEUS), including the realistic sky, sun glare, god ray, waving grass and waves, realistic dynamic shadows and lighting, and many more. This very popular Shader pack modification comes with exclusive permission, so every part of it is legally distributed.
Should You Use It?
If your system can use this graphic-intensive pack, then you should. If you are okay with playing in the range of 30 – 40 frames per second, then there is no other downside to this absolutely terrific Shader pack. This pack can and will transform your Minecraft into a wonderful game with gorgeous graphics comparable to games like Witcher. However, the Continuum Shaders Mod requires a beast PC to run smoothly and every inch of power it has to maintain smooth gameplay. If you’re part of the 90% of Minecraft players who just play for fun, then you might want to avoid getting this Shader Pack and save your PC from overheating.
