In this article, we will show you how to download and install Chocapic13’ Shaders Pack. This is a great shaders pack that really takes Minecraft’s look up a notch. It offers a medium yellow lighting style in the daylight with a very dark nighttime setup. It is actually one of the darkest shaders packs I’ve seen at night, so be sure to keep your torches, glowstone, or sea lanterns around if you want to navigate and play at night. Nevertheless, without any more delay, here is how to download and install Chocapic13’ Shaders in Minecraft!

How To Download & Install Chocapic13’s Shaders Pack in Minecraft

Download & Install Optifine in Order To Get Shaders in Minecraft

Step 1) Download & Install Optifine

Chocapic13’ Shaders isn't technically a mod; it is a graphics pack that is installed in a very similar manner to texture packs. The thing is, however, shader packs aren't supported by vanilla Minecraft. You need to install Optifine in order to get them up and running. Lucky for you, we have an in-depth tutorial on downloading and installing Optifine which you can find by clicking the link below!

Step 2) Download Chocapic13’ Shaders

In order to download Chocapic13’ Shaders, you can go to their official CurseForge page. To do that, click the yellow ‘download Chocapic13’ Shaders’ button towards the top of this page. When you do, that will take you to CurseForge. Now, look at the right-hand side of the page. Scroll down, and you will see a section with the version you want to download. Under that, you'll see Chocapic13’ Shaders. Click the purple download button to the right of it, and your download will begin after 5 seconds!

Note: Shaders packs are typically VERY resource intensive. I cannot recommend playing Minecraft with shaders if you do not have a very good, desktop PC. Some high-end gaming laptops may be able to run shaders, but even those may have an issue depending on when they were released. 

How To Get To The Shaders Pack Folder in Minecraft

Step 3) Open Your Shaders Folder

Now that you have Chocapic13’ Shaders downloaded, go ahead and open the Minecraft launcher and play the ‘Optifine' version. When you're on the Minecraft main menu, click the ‘Options…' button. Next, click the ‘Video Settings…' button, and on the next page, click ‘Shaders…'. You're almost there. Now, just click the ‘Shaders Folder' button in the bottom left of Minecraft, and a folder window will open up. You are finally where you need to be.

Step 4) Install The Shaders Pack

The hardest part of getting Chocapic13’ Shaders installed is getting to the shaders folder. Once you're there, it's actually pretty easy. Just take the shaders pack you downloaded in step 2, this is most likely in your ‘Downloads' folder or on your desktop, and move it into the ‘shaderpacks' folder you just opened. Once you've done that, closeout of the folder, and restart Minecraft. Be sure when you are opening it back up you are selecting the ‘Optifine' version. After you're back in Minecraft, redo step 3, but stop just before opening the ‘Shaders Folder'. You should see Chocapic13’ Shaders installed on this screen. Click it, click ‘done', and go play some Minecraft!

Congratulations. You now know how to download & install Chocapic13’ Shaders in Minecraft. Truthfully, the hardest part of the entire process is getting to the Shaders Folder. Once you've done that, it's drag and drop! If you do, however, have any issues download and install Chocapic13’ Shaders, comment below. We are happy to help you in any way we can.
