This 1.20.2-1.19.4 shader pack includes a huge number of additional graphical features for Minecraft. The vanilla sky will be replaced with realistic moving 3D textures with random cloud generator. Shaders will add fog for different places in the game, for example over water it will be unobtrusive, in warm and winter biomes fog will be more saturated.
The vanilla unrealistic water will be replaced with smoothed realistic water with highlights and 3D waves. There is an algorithm to generate the refraction of light if the beam passes through the glass. Underground lighting will now be more realistic and it differs from the surface in that the particles of light will fight off the nearest block and fall so that the trajectory was realistic. The algorithm for the biome fogs has some logic and this will not be generated in the builds, because in buildings the level of humidity is minimal and this rule applies to other vanilla buildings.
