Complementary Shader 1.18.1, 1.17.1: The Most Comprehensive Minecraft Shaderpack

Complementary Shader Pack is one of the most comprehensive shaderpacks for Minecraft Java Edition. It is based on Capt Tatsu’s “BSL Shaders” and its goal is to provide an issueless experience to the player. Complementary runs reasonably fast, supports almost every GPU and driver, works well with mods that no one thought a shader pack could be compatible with, fixes problems that no other shader packs addressed before and doesn’t disturb you with excessive effects.
