Minecraft is a game where all its elements are shaped like a cube or block, meaning that you can change and customize the pictures . Therefore, the materials, characters, animals and plants have a square and pixelated appearance. However, it is possible to improve the graphical detail of Minecraft up to an impressive 4K high definition, but for that we will need several things.
What is the first thing I need to have Minecraft in 4K?
A computer with the processing power necessary to generate the shadow and lighting effects of our vision. For the specific case of a Minecraft with a photo-realistic appearance, we will need to have a processor in our PC with at least 8 cores, 3200 Mhz, 32 GB of RAM, and a good 8 GB or more nVidia or Gigabyte graphics card. .
What do I need to download to get it in 4K?
You will need to download 5 files from 4 different websites : a mod specially designed to dramatically improve the graphics by means of a shader , another mod that includes an HD texture pack, the classic Optifine mod for the support of said textures and have the version Minecraft Forge 1.14.4 or higher.
Of the 4 web addresses, 2 of them are paid : first the Ultimate Immersion is a mod and also a pack of HD textures, which has plans that vary between $ 8 – $ 50 (the maximum quality of resolution varies according to the plan), and secondly, the Sonic Ether shader, which will give the realistic touch to high definition textures, has plans that vary between $ 10 – $ 25.
How can I have a Minecraft in 4K?
First, you locate the downloaded Forge file in the downloads folder and double-click on the icon to open the installation window and then on the “OK” button, to carry out and complete the process.
We go to the address bar of any explorer window or press the Windows + R keys to open the “Run” window, and place “% appdata%”, this will not lead to the data folders of the applications you have in your computer; Among them, access the folder “.minecraft”.
Go to the “shaderpacks” folder and paste the Seus PTGI shader file (the one from Sonic Ether); then go up one level and go to the “resourcepacks” folder, where you will paste the Ultimate Immersion texture file.
We go back up one level and locate the “mods” folder (if it does not exist you must create it), once inside it, we put the two files that we have left : the Optifine mod, and the Ultimate Immersion mod for modern interiors, we can download different mods in Minecraft ; in the case of the latter, which comes in ZIP format, we must unzip it to obtain the Java file with a JAR extension.
We open Minecraft and press the “Installations” button where we will see the Forge version, click on the additional options button (…) and go to the “Edit” option. Now in “JVM Arguments” we go to the beginning where it says “-Xmx2G-” and we replace it with “-Xmx14G-” and save; with this we allocate 14 GB of RAM to the game .
When starting Minecraft we will see on the lower left side, the message in English “3 mods loaded” indicating that they were loaded correctly (Minecraft, Forge and Ultímate immersion); we go to “Options> Graphics> Shaders”, select “Seus PTGI E12.zip” and click “OK”.
We go to “Options> Resource Packages” and move the Ultímate Immersion mod from the “Packages in folder” option to “Packages in use”; we move it to the first place so that it has the highest hierarchy, and we save.
We go to “Options> Video settings” , and in “Details” the option “Alternative blocks” in “No”, the option “Trees” in “Quick”. We go up one level and go to “Quality”. In “Natural Textures” we put “No”. We return to the “Shaders” option. We mark “Shadow quality” in “1X” and “Old lighting” in “Default”.
In conclusion, a Super Minecraft in 4K is an option only for fans. That they want to treat themselves to see a different face of this game. The graphics quality is really impressive , but yes, doing some expenses.
