While Minecraft is an ever-expansive and fun game to play in its original variant, a lot more can be added to it by installing mods and resource packs. One of the most effective and useful tools (mods) you can install – whether you want to keep the original flavor or add some uniqueness to your game – is the Optifine mod. Optifine is not a resource pack in itself. It does not change any textures in the game. It is, instead, a tool that allows you to adjust Minecraft to increase performance or visuals to your liking. For instance, it provides new settings in the menus that allow you to more freely adjust rendering distance and other factors that might affect how well your computer can run the game. It also allows you to use various resource packs with custom features. If you use HD resource packs and have seen major frame rate drops, see serious lag spikes in your system, or otherwise just need an FPS boost, Optifine HD will provide exactly what you are looking for.

Optifine can be used in both single player games and multiplayer servers. Be warned, though, Optifine HD only works in multiplayer games if the server’s host also has Optifine HD installed on the server. If this is not the case, Optifine will be disabled and you will not be able to use it. Another warning that comes with this is that some of the steps you can take to increase your frame rate will also make Minecraft less visually appealing to look at. You can disable clouds, the sky, stars, fog, and a number of other functions that make the game more visually appealing. All in all, Optifine HD is probably the best way to take more complete control of your Minecraft experience. You can adjust how textured and detailed everything is, from bare bones to top of the line graphics, based on what your personal computer can handle.
