If you have a pack on this list that you no longer intend to maintain, please move it to Legacy Shaderpacks.

Requirements for your shaderpack to be allowed on this list

  • The shaderpack should be publicly accessable in some way
    • This also covers paid shaderpacks, as those are available for any person to buy
  • The download link needs to be safe for everyone to use
  • The shaderpack needs to be identifiable as a unique piece of work
    • Own code contribution has to be recognizable, especially applies to edits
    • Ideally the visuals have unique elements, however not necessary due to the possibility of similar artstyles between various packs
  • Development effort has to be visible
    • The shaderpack needs to not have "dirty" code and the author should be willing to improve themselves

Examples for insufficient packs

  • Download links pointing to a website with intrusive or malicious ads
  • An edit of an existing shaderpack that consists almost exclusively of changed variables
  • A shaderpack that consists almost exclusively of tutorial- or copied code with little difference
  • Releasing a pack with no intention to maintain it

If you have questions regarding these criteria or are unsure if your pack meets them, feel free to ask us on our discord server.
