UltraMax Shader

A shader pack that subtly change the way you look at Minecraft.

This shader pack is aimed to improve some of the basic lighting and visual projections by introducing a very unique way of rendering it in its own way. Colors are more vibrant, surroundings are more atmospheric, and even the overall gameplay.

Have a shader nice and pretty, basic makes unique.

Proudly presented to you by Ultra Shader Foundation.

Select version for changelog:

  1. Updated resources to version 1.14+.
  2. Fog now renders closer to player when raining. Note that this effects also applied underground and when facing down. Going to fix that one once I have a proper fix for it.
  3. Shader based, squared sun and moon.
  4. Exposed last versions of UltraMax Shader under one single link for backwards compatibility and last working version reference. Take note that Ultra Shader Foundation no longer provide last version support for any issues arise apart from using them to determine the current issue.

Why haven't you updated this shader? It is exactly what I was looking for and it is not available for my version...
someone who has the working link of all versions :(
i feel like i just have the vignette, not the shader feel...
It won't let me download the shader. Pls help
I love this shader, I've been using this shader for a very long time. I would recommended
and the water also has waves! The only thing I hate is the Monochromatic filter but its overall good!
Is this supposed to be a vanilla shader?
Nope, not really..
I always use this shader because I love it! But the banners are invisible and I hate a little bit there is grey fog when I look down. If the fog was less foggy and the banners are visible, I rate the shader 5 hearts and share this to my people.
For people who have issues with the banners who is invisible:

go to games/com.mojang/recsource_packs/UltramaxSh/shaders/hlsl and rename the file banner.fragment and banner.vertex to banners.fragment and banners.vertex. It’s just the letter s. It’s actually working.
when it was available, it worked on my snapdragon 425 but it was laggy lol
the download link is now not working, I uninstalled my whole Download Folder so I needed to install this again, but now I am using ReBuilt Shader :D
To everyone asking for an update, they made a new shader called rebuilt shader, so check that out
Can someone tell me how to eliminate the movement of the plants and that the water is flat pls

go to games/com.mojang/recsource_packs/UltramaxSh/shaders/hlsl and rename the file banner.fragment and banner.vertex to banners.fragment and banners.vertex. It's just the letter s. It's actually working.
