This is the new home for all of the optional Vanilla RTX Add-Ons!
They were previously included on download page of Vanilla RTX, but as time passed and number of them kept increasing, it was no longer possible to include newer ones in the same page as Vanilla RTX.
To make that post less cluttered and more focused on Vanilla RTX, they were moved here instead, from now on, you can find all of Vanilla RTX's Optional Add-Ons and their updates here on this page.

When making any add-on for Vanilla RTX, both creative and survival modes were kept in mind to ensure an undisrupted and consistent experience when used alongside Vanilla RTX.

Currently there are a total of 7 optional add-ons available that you can download and apply on top of Vanilla RTX to modify certain parts of it as you wish.
Each add-on has been carefully made to remain consistent with Vanilla RTX with its feel and theme in mind, this page contains all pieces of relevant information for each Vanilla RTX Add-On.

Glowing Concrete Add-On makes all colors of concrete emit a small amount of light, and turns black concrete into the blackest material (absorbing all light).
In contrast, Glowing Hardened Clay Add-On makes all terracotta blocks emit much more vibrant colors of light with significantly greater strength.

Clear Water Add-On

Perfect Mirrors Add-On replaces various blocks with perfect mirrors. Several options are given for replacing a block with a mirror. All of the blocks in these options do not spawn naturally and you can obtain them easily in the survival world.
Colored Mirrors is a special option that turns all 16 colors of concrete into perfect mirrors of varying colors.
