HerrSommer Resource Pack 1.7.5
While many other texture and resource packs in Minecraft focus on changing the looks of items, mobs and blocks, none of them really do much to change up the lighting or sense of illumination in the game. HerrSommer stands out from the majority of other Minecraft resource packs because it doesn’t actually do much to change the look of the world around the player. Textures are slightly improved and the iron golem really stands out as one of the only seriously different sprites in this resource pack. The real changes from the basic Minecraft look are the dynamic lighting and shadows delivered by HerrSommer.
Even with the best kind of PC available on the market today, with the most powerful graphics card, tons of memory and a great deal of processing power, Minecraft is still going to look like Minecraft. The shadows are as blocky as everything else and the lighting leaves much to be desired, really either “on” or “off” when there are torches present (or not). It does fade out a little over distance, but the effects aren’t much to speak about. That changes when the HerrSommer resource pack is installed and turned on. Everything, from the tallest tree, to the smallest shrub, to the players themselves all cast better shadows.
Though the world still retains its rather blocky look, as Minecraft worlds always will, the shadows created with the dynamic lighting are actually more of a three dimensional effect. The player’s shadow bobs and weaves while they wander, sunrises and sunsets are actually beautiful things which will grab the viewer’s attention, and the nether isn’t nearly as dark thanks to the lighting effects being applied to the glowstone therein. The HerrSommer resource pack brightens up Minecraft quite a lot, making things cleaner and crisper while easier to see as well. It’s great for players who don’t want to change the basic game too much, but do want to see.
