Simplicissimus Shaders 1.14.4. Simplicissimus Shaders 1.14.4. Simplicissimus Shaders 1.14.4. You try saying that one three times fast! However, contrary to this pack’s difficult name, Simplicissimus Shaders is one of the most down-to-earth and stripped back shader experiences out there. So take a seat and read our rundown of this (shall we say simple?) Minecraft shader pack.

What is Simplicissimus Shaders 1.14.4?

Simplicissimus Shaders 1.14.4 is a shader pack made for those of you who don’t need the most realistic, mind blowing, ultra HD shader packs, but instead need a pack that boosts Minecraft’s visual quality but doesn’t sacrifice any of your current Minecraft performance.

What is Simplicissimus Shaders 1.14.4 like to use?


As you might have gauged, simplicity is the name of the game with this pack. Right from booting the game up, you’re met with a minimalist and non-complicated shader style that feels less like a visual overhaul and more like an actual Minecraft update that we all dream of from time to time.

The feel of this pack just delivers on an odd sense of nostalgia factor. Using this pack for just a short while reminded me very much of classic and alpha Minecraft. The lighting is very soft in your immediate world surroundings, and gentle fog surrounds parts of the world that have yet to be loaded.


Speaking of lighting, the dynamic lighting displayed here reminds me very much of simple 3D renders you might see online, which is a great look for Minecraft, especially in maps and builds that focus a lot on modern or contemporary architecture.

Another great aspect is that the processes and effects that are present in the pack don’t leave such an impact on the world that Minecraft starts to look like an entirely different game. Both day and nighttime are basically the same light level of the base game, so maps and even survival mode aren’t affected and you don’t need to start fiddling with your monitor’s lighting settings.

Some packs really begin to push the visual style of Minecraft beyond its intended look. Simplicissimus takes a different approach, so you’ll never have to consider how your build will look once you apply the pack when you’re finished actually building it.

If your dream shader is a simple pack that doesn’t add a bombardment of effects and processes, then you might have just found the perfect pack for you. Simplicissimus is a cleverly simple pack that doesn’t bother itself with mucking around over-the-top effects and instead focuses on improving Minecraft’s visuals and maintains solid performance levels for even lower-end PCs that can’t normally run shader packs during their Minecraft playthroughs.
