Lagless 1.20.2-1.8.9shaders make Minecraft much more realistic and enjoyable. Added mirroring in water, high-quality shadows, a wider range of sun and moon rays throughout the day or night (the brightness and color of light beams changes over time), realistic RGB sky with a mix of more than 200 colors.
These shaders are also considered one of the optimized (Lightweight) ones, because it contains only 14 scripts that affect the graphical components of your game world. Nevertheless, the author tried to leave the default vanilla gameplay style, for example, he introduced mirroring on blocks of water, randomly generate micro-squares on various blocks, change boring clouds into very voluminous objects, and so on. Additionally, you can further reduce the load on the GPU by selecting one of the options inside the archive. When choosing the lite version, 14 shader scripts will also be available to you, but this just reduces the randomness of interacting with textures.
