DrDestens Shaders are relatively new shaders that add realistic effects to Minecraft, whilst maintaining playable fps. The way the shaderpack achieves this, is by leaving out shadows entirely. The creator of this pack, DrDesten, made some other shaders that are worth checking out as well. In 2022, Stracciatella Shaders saw the light. This is a simplistic low end shaderpack, which could be a great alternative to this shaderpack, in case it doesn’t run very well on your system.


This shaderpack will perform great on mid to high-end systems, but is still more of a high-end pack. It includes a range of features, such as water effects with reflections, depth of field, ambient occlussion, and even texture pack support. Texture pack support allows you to get ultra realistic textures in Minecraft using texture packs like HardTop Vanillaccurate or Brixel.

And that’s not it. By default, it will also add a white outline to nearby foliage, as well as bright god rays. Some options, which you can enable manually, are anti-aliasing, blur and other camera effects.

Great performance

Because the shaderpack has no shadows, it performs exceptionally well for a shader with this many features. The creator of the pack, DrDesten, says he will not include shadows in the pack in the future, because it wouldn’t be worth the performance hit. Due to the lack of shadows all together, you should have a smooth experience playing Minecraft with this pack. That is, if you have a decent system. Unfortunately, this shader does perform great on PC’s and laptop without a dedicated graphics card.

So whilst you won’t see any shadows in Minecraft when using this DrDestens McShaders, you will still get a great shaderpack with a ton of features and a bright blue sky! Since DrDestens shaders 1.19.3 is still a relatively new shaderpack, we can expect the performance of the shaders to improve significantly with future updates. The same goes for its little brother called Stracciatella shaders.
