What Is... Optifine? ▫ The Minecraft Survival Guide (Tutorial Lets Play) [Part 63]

Minecraft Mod Review: THE OPTIFINE MOD!


  1. User avatar

    It provides a zoom, which is cool, not that useful but cool. Mojang doesn't like capes not made by them because they're meant to be special but there is a OptiFine cape section, not one for Lunar therefor I believe Mojang is very much ok with Opti. Also Lunar is overrated and Opti is just a small boost. Lunar has unnecessary features.

    👍 Pros:    Zoom|Cape with banner|No payment besides cape|Can run shaders and texture packs
    👎 Cons:    Cape is $10

    Your Forge version is incompatible with that version of Optifine. You will need to downgrade Forge. That version of Optifine requires Forge version 40.0.24 (always check the required Forge version here: ). Source: 11 months ago

  • Noob to java
    For shaders, there's 2 types: vanilla shaders and shaders require mods. For vanilla shader, it can be done like how texture packs are used, but it's not common to find. For shaders with mods, start with installing a shader loader like Optifine, which can be used either individually after installing it, or with Forge mod loader; or you can use Iris shaders mod, which will need [Fabric mod loader]( and...

  • I’m a noob so please be kind. I got the game a long time ago but don’t remember if I have Java or Bedrock. My account says I have both but idk which is downloaded on my PC. How can I tell ? This is the title screen.
    Optifine is a “mod” (doesn’t really feel like one though) that improves FPS and overall performance. It’s also available to use when on servers even if the other people don’t have it. It usually doubles FPS and makes the world load better. It also adds more graphics settings and has options to make blocks like glass connect together. I like it because it makes it so when you hold a torch or anything that emits... Source: about 1 year ago

  • I built Gerudo Town in Minecraft!
    Nothing to see here, just some normal sand seals chilling... I used Optifine and Sildurs Vibrant Shaders! Adjusted the water color to make it a bit greener, though. Source: over 1 year ago
  • how to add the textures&shaders to my existing worlds?
    Each MultiMC instance has its own saves folder, so your existing worlds won't show up. If you only want to use shaders and resource packs, you're probably best to install Optifine or Iris as an installation in the Minecraft Launcher, which uses the same saves folder for each installation.
