The entire idea about the Shadows Without Shaders Resource Pack is to implement a similar idea from shaders into a Resource Pack without dropping the performance of the game for players who cant efficiently run shaders or simply don’t want to. The Resource Pack keeps and maintains the default textures from the original, vanilla 16×16 resolution pack and makes changes to both lighting and shadows- which make notable effects on the environment in game and allows for more contrast and depth in the games lighting while playing idly. Unfortunately, the pack isnt cross compatible with other Resource Packs and is a standalone project.
