Some mods will make no sense to a player who hasn’t in the past tried the source materials the mod was based upon. For instance, the Continuum Shader mod is actually an addition for another mod, Cody Darr’s Shaderpack. If you haven’t tried SEUS before, you probably won’t understand Continnum shaders, but besides that, Continuum won’t do anything for you. This add-on improves some features of the original shader mod, and it also increases the demands on your computer and its resources when it comes to rendering graphics and creating the light and shadow effects.
We’re talking about using multiple, powerful graphics cards to render all the lighting effects, that kind of work. Some people might say this is taking shaders a little too far, that Minecraft was inherently supposed to be a simple game and by complicating things like this, you lose a little bit of that simple joy. Others, like those who would actually download and use the Continuum Shader mod, want to get as much as they possibly can out of their favorite voxel-based game. Whether you have a computer than can support it or not, this is definitely one of the best shader packs and mods for Minecraft today.
