Optifine HD Mod may not be a mod that adds anything new or exciting to the game, but it does, however, make the whole playing experience of Minecraft vastly more positive, due to a few little changes that the mod brings your way.
The main feature the mod brings your way is in the name itself: optimisation. Which is exactly what the mod does; it optimises the game, no matter what type of computer you’re playing on.
Throughout the years, Minecraft has gone through a number of additions and improvements, which for individuals who have a decent PC don’t need to worry about when it came to framerate and performance for the game. But, you couldn’t avoid the fact that the more they added the game, the more likely performance was going to suffer and tank for systems that couldn’t handle the game. I myself had this issue back when I had a laptop, and not being able to play the game was really starting to become an issue; until I had installed Optifine. This mod made it so even on a regular laptop; the game was more than playable throughout my time spent on it.
This mod allows you to lower your maximum draw distance to a significant degree, whereas Minecraft only allows you to go so far, but with this mod it allows for a big boost in performance. Not only that, but there are a number of other features you can turn on or off, just to make the game run that little bit better for you.
While this mod may allow for an increase in performance, it also allows for an increase in overall quality. You can vastly increase your draw distance, along with some other features that increase the quality of the game, and can really help to make the game pop! While it may not optimise your gameplay, if your PC can take it, then you will certainly feel the increase in overall quality for the game.
When you take into consideration just how effective this mod really is, especially for those with a PC that can’t quite keep up with Minecraft anymore, then this is the mod for you. Once it’s installed and the settings have been tweaked, you’ll quickly see a change; one for the better.
