This is how I feel people are using PMC these days, you may not agree. But this is
my point of view but many will agree

First off, most spots on the projects area, are spammed with bad quality, and quite frankly terrible builds! First of all here is the first example:
Image
Title: My Cool Survival / Try to survive dis puzzel!
See what I mean?
This wont get much views at first, but if the owner reposts and makes 3 tweaks every reupload, then he/she will earn a load of xp, due to views, and the slight download once and awhile. And this is all they have done:
Image
Not fair.

Shaders.
This will rocket even the worst project to the top, take a look, if you saw this, it WILL catch your eye
Image
Lets tweak that title:
Sand Villa
I must say I may be interested by this, although this project took me more time uploading than making.

See? Some people spend days making a project, that get little or no XP, when a smart little person is laughing at their computer with 20 Levels from 2 minutes of their work!

Thanks for the Pop Reel!

wow, thankyou for being so... what's the word? Oh yeah. AWESOME! The same thing has happened to me with all my projects/blogs/etc., I spend ages on them and no notice gets gotten (new phrase? :P). But then when I show someone at school they compliment me, even though I don't think it's that good either.

Anywho, diamond and sub! :D

I completely agree, I have made some great redstone creations that took me hours to make, but have gotten very few views or downloads...

it's important to make your project look cool. i believe theres nothing wrong in using shaders if you spent a long time on your map.

But I am talking about when there is a crap build, and the shader makes it look a lot better, therefore making a 2 minute build seem like it took ages to build

Well, if you're angry that other people are using shaders to make their projects look better, and you're posting better projects, then just use shaders yourself.

Ya, I've come across plenty of projects like this. There was an adventure map I downloaded because it had an interesting sounding title. Worst one I've ever played. It was extremely short, looked half built, looked ugly (used mostly one material; stone), and some of its redstone circuits didn't even work. The funny thing about that project was that the creator thought that it was really popular because it had 100 views and made a sequel (I tried it for laughs; it was just as bad).

Anyway, very well written article. I also like how you showed how a bad project could be made to look better with shaders.

Here's a diamond for your troubles.

Even with shaders that looks like crap. I'd never download that I need something big!

before shaders it was Chunky renders or just Photoshop. So much better to see project pics in engine, and vanilla in engine at that

Shaders have always annoyed me I mean, I get that if someone makes a big project and they're proud if it they wanna make it look as good as possible but every pop reel project has a shader mod and often a texture pack as well. It's cool to have a few pictures with the bells and whistles but they should put up a few pictures of the build in default minecraft.

Yeah, that means u wouldnt look at my Texturepack. there are only Shader Screens. xD But seriously, i bought me a new graphics card just for shader.! Because that makes minecraft awsome.^^ And i think that we are in a time, where every one should have a computer like this.. I mean the adults.. Net every child gets a gamer pc. My Texture pack goes to the adults, that have pc, that can handle the shaders.^^

Btw, sorry for that englisch.^^

Yeah, I admit I have fell into that trap, I made an island, that looks pretty cool, but I added a shader for that 'POP' effect. I see where youre coming from. :)

I get you. There was that lemon, which was awesome but really simple, with a bunch of shaders and we're all like "Oh a lemon thats so cool"
