Gearan is a wonderful resource pack that is a kind of Golden mean between realistic and standard textures. It has beautiful 3d models, but is also perfect for slower computers.
This will transform the game to make textures more expressive and improve their quality, and actually change the appearance of items to more expressive than before. Additionally, these options will give you very good graphics in the game along with shaders!
How to install Gearan
- Install Optifine HD (Not necessary but desirable)
- Download Resource Pack
- Unzip it and copy to C:\Users\User_Name\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\resourcepacks
- In the game settings, select the desired resource pack
