What is the Vanilla Plus Shader?

This shaderpack aims to preserve the vanilla Minecraft aesthetic, while also giving it some graphical touchups that make it more interesting. This includes the addition of dynamic shadows and lighting colors, custom vanilla clouds (which also work with resourcepack cloud textures) and a few optional enhancements like custom water. In addition to that it also features color grading profiles that can mimic the color palette of Minecraft Alpha versions as well as the looks of some older, but still popular despite being horribly outdated and bugged, shaderpacks like SEUS v08 or Chocapic v3 and it's (largely unauthorized) edits.
