So recently out of the blue I’ve begun randomly searching for mods and other add-ons to better my Minecraft experience, and naturally shared my findings with Shatter. In time, we found ourselves using an interesting selection of such mods and shaders that actually aren’t very demanding to run, even on my average PC. These proved to be extremely immersive to both of us, and if one likes immersion, or enjoyed Roleplay and see’s the potentially enhanced experience in this, then the following list is for you!
Starting off this list is a shader. Now not to worry yourself with ‘‘my PC is a potato’’, because this shader is as if designed for weaker computers! I have a Nvidia GT 730 myself, and since shaders run primarily on graphic card capability I expect, I am able to enjoy Chocopic13’s Medium shader on a comfortable 22 fps! The shader naturally has lighter selections as well, for those of you who will go ‘‘ewww, its not above 30 fps’’.
AND OFCOURSE to run ANY shader, you will need Optifine installed!
Now this is a mod that was introduced to me by LogicalDark not too long ago when I was getting in to augmenting Minecraft sounds with mods. This mod turned out just what I was looking for! It adds wind, bird sounds, heavyer winds the higher you climb, cave winds/drafts the lower you go, animal sounds according to what biome you are in, and according to what time of day it is, indoor sounds like old creeking wood (that’s a word right), as well as an overhauled sound system for walking over specific blocks, your step sounds will have more weight, and your footsteps will sound different depending on what armor you are wearing, MUCH better water flowing sounds, and it also adds steam vents where water meets a magma block, when it rains deserts get sand storm particles, AND SO MUCH MORE! Try it!
Sound Filters Mod
This is another sweet little sound mod that basically adds reverb to caves and mutes sounds when you’re underwater and when the sound source is behind a wall. So far it works very nicely with DynamicSurroundings mod and I highly suggest trying it as well
You WILL need forge for 1.12 and drag the files from all these mods in to the mods folder in your .Minecraft folder. If you didn’t know this already, this means doing the same for optifine, just choose to extract Optifine rather than installing it after downloading it from the web, and drag it in to the mods folder with the rest.
