Presence: Tiny experimental shader project for MT

by random_geek » Post

This is the result of a personal attempt to "figure out" shaders, and improve the default MT shaders just a bit. So far, the shaders:
  1. increase contrast (darker darks and brighter brights),
  2. add colour grading (blue in dark areas, warm orange in lighter areas),
  3. and make sunlight warmer at dawn and dusk.
In my opinion, this improves the aesthetic of MT quite a bit, especially with tonemapping enabled. However, don't expect any of the fancy features described in the "Eye candy" thread, or seen in some MC shaders.

I would still like to see effects like bloom, dynamic lighting, and water reflections, but these things too complicated for my current knowledge of MT and Irrlicht.

EDIT: This effect may look better with a higher gamma value, such as 2 or 3.

Great to see someone improving the shaders! I will take it for a spin.

I tried it and appreciated it.
Haven't installed on my phone yet though.

I have limited experience with GLSL, but I wonder if it would be possible to make shaders to simulate colour-blindness. Or even for blue-light shield.

Both would certainly be doable. Feel free to PM me. :)

Which version of minetest support these shaders?

0.4.16, 0.4.17.1 or 5.0.0-dev?

I put the shaders in my client fork. Good stuff.

Should work in any of the versions, but I'm not sure. This project is also not really something I'm planning on maintaining. :)
