    Hah, makes sense. There's a reason that the "can it run Minecraft" joke is used often, shaders can be tough even for good rigs, and this is 4K. Disappointing though, this was literally the main attraction of that E3 conference when the Xbox One X was revealed to show its capabilities.

    I'd love shaders and ray tracing in Minecraft.
    That game can have some amazing scenery.

    Wait, so you're telling me that in the end xonex does not get minecraft in 4K? Excuse my ignorance.

    Yup, at least that's what I see here. Google is not very helpful atm and everything on Minecraft 4K is the graphics pack. I assume it's still 1080p for now.

    EDIT: Confirmed. No enhanced version for the Xbox One, it's the same 1080p deal. :)

    America's heart, she's a beaut.
    Maxed out with all the bells and whistles, yeah, but what Microsoft showed for their shader pack was a bare bones lighting upgrade. My ol' 2010 Asus laptop ran those types of shaders just fine on the Java version back in the day. It was barely a lite version, if that, of any shader out today for Java Minecraft.

    While that's true, you also have to account for it being at 4K resolution, and the most important part; bad optimization.

    Java is very inconsistent unfortunately

    My laptop that has an i7 and gtx 1070 has trouble playing the game at a stable framerate before shaders

    After shaders I'm pretty much just watching a slideshow

    Optimize it for looking like that on smartphones and switch? Heheh, that ain't work anytime unless switch was upgraded with tensor cores or something. And EVEN then, you gotta account EVERY FREAKING SMARTPHONE.

    "a pain to optimize" would be underestimating it.

    Well, finally they fuckin' said it. Took forever for them to do so. I was looking forward to this, even though I only play like minecraft like 3 times a year. Haha.

    What was so hard about it? N64 games look like they were pushing more polygons than Minecraft.

    Fucking retards can't even optimize a few shaders... Sad and pathetic. Yeah, I'm salty about this because I've been looking forward to an easier shader installation by official means. Thanks for fucking me Mojang, next time use lube.

    It may have been cringe but that white woman looked real fine.

    They were planning it for the Pocket version?

    And Switch?

    Really?

    That would have been stupid.

    I thought it was only for Xbox One X and maybe PS4 Pro and PC

    uhhh, *my* laptop has an 8th gen mobile i7 + 1070 and it runs the SEUS PTGI shaders pretty decently.

    Not surprised. It's been clear for the past few years now that Minecraft either needs a sequel or a complete code rewrite to have good performance/optimization.

    It is called Dragon Quest Builders.

    They should not have made a sequel to that game. The bosses there are money-grabbing ass holes, though.

    Like almost all bosses worldwide.


    I dream that Dragon Quest Builders (the real one, the first one) will be released on PC and excellently optimised.
