  • Lighter and clearer water
  • More vibrant grass
  • Improved and more natural-looking crops
  • Variation textures for grass, podzol, and mycelium
  • Animated Redstone & Redstone-related blocks
  • Greatly improved smoother nether blocks
  • Smoother Diorite, Andesite, and Granite
  • Better sunset and sunrise, with a custom lightmap
  • Natural and atmospheric sounds
  • Various tweaks to fix vanilla's inconsistencies
  • and more, check it out for yourself!
