Stratum Resourcepack System Requirements

These are usually estimates, due to the nature of Development, and MC itself, and are meant to be used as rough guidelines. They will change as our products are developed / updated. We will update them as often as possible.

These numbers will change a bit with game settings like render distance, screen resolution, your currently loaded save, and will go up as the pack is developed and textures are added. Your shader choice can greatly impact the performance of Stratum as well. Not using a shader at all or disabling normal and / or specular textures will greatly reduce the memory requirements of the resourcepack as well, at the cost of visuals / features. We recommend maxing the Optifine mipmap setting in video > quality when using Stratum, especially with a shader. It will reduce shimmering/noise on textures, and greatly improve performance.

Stratum is ONLY compatible with the Java Edition of Minecraft. Windows 10, Pocket, etc. versions are NOT supported.
