Minecraft Middle Earth is a Minecraft community that recreates the world described by JRR Tolkien and his writings. Everyone can participate in organized events in which we collaborate to create major landmarks, terrain, caves, castles, towns, farms and more.
I think I figured out what the problem is. It's not the "smooth lighting" but the "od lighting" under shader options. For some shaders and even different versions it must be set to "on" or "default" and for some "off". I think for Kuda it must be set to "on".
