The Potato Shaders pack by Rre36 is a bit dated, but still a good example of shaders done right. It’s lightweight by design, so performance on weaker systems doesn’t suffer as much as it would with more demanding shaders. The goal, according to the author, was to make a shader pack that would work on a potato of a PC, and Potato Shaders does this well. You won’t get dynamic shadows, so flickering lights, lava, and clouds overhead won’t cast detailed, varying shadows. But you do get a lot of other, common shader pack effects – like bloom, dynamic colors, and a motion blur when moving or turning quickly.

Potato Shaders also feature an adjustable Depth of Field (DoF). The basic setting in Minecraft is either too close or so blown out it looks ridiculous, and this shader pack remedies that. Water can also be customized, with a short list of features that can be toggled on or off to get something that suits your particular gaming rig. Anti-aliasing takes some of the rough edges off textures, but in a blocky game like Minecraft, it’s still a bit jagged, even when turned on. Overall, things get a kind of hazy look to make up for the better lighting. Some visuals are worse, so some can be improved.

As for installing Potato Shaders, you’ll need Optifine, at least version 1.12. Also, since Potato Shaders hasn’t been updated since March 25, 2022, you can expect some visual bugs. Older systems won’t be able to run Potato Shaders either, since the pack requires a GPU with support for OpenGL 4.0. That means you’re not getting any function at all from onboard graphics built into your motherboard.

Features

Over 30 new features are available in Potato Shaders to enhance your gaming experience.
