Optifog + Optimine Review

Today I present you with the remedy to all of your Minecraft Lag problems: Optifog(Including Optimine!)

Optifog is an optimization mod that was made by sp614x, who later added Optimine(originally made by Scaevolus, later updated by inio, now maintained by sp614x) to increase performance even further.

I’m not going to go in-depth in what Optifog adds to minecraft(mainly because I don’t know what it all means), but this is directly from the Optifog and Optimine thread:

This mod adds a lot of options for better looks and performance. Doubling the FPS is common.
Moves fog away, adds mipmaps, chunk loading control (mod CAF), Smooth FPS, brightness control, VSync and many other.

While I’m not completely sure what all of that means, I am positive that this is a very effective mod, and is the main reason that I can play Minecraft on my laptop!

Graphics: N/A
Sounds: N/A
Bugginess: 5/5

In my experience, I have not found any bugs with this mod, probably due to the fact it’s not an interactive mod in that you don’t cause things to happen, therefore without interaction there isn’t much room for bugs. I have tested all features of the mod that come with it and have never experienced any real problems with it.

Installation: 5/5

Installation is as easy as any mod can make it. It has various methods that you can use to install it, including vanilla installation, ModLoader installation, MCPatcher installation, etc.

Content: 5/5

This mod doesn’t really add much content to the game, it just adds the optimizations. However, it does add the options to turn off animations, to turn off clouds, and other things as well, which is a really nice touch if you want to get rid of some of the annoying parts of Minecraft.

The Verdict

So, as you can see, this mod gets nothing but 10′s from me. It’s done so much good for my Minecraft, I can hardly play without it.

      Howdy, I do think your web site might be having browser compatibility issues.
      Whenever I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine
      but when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues.

      I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, wonderful site!

      Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
      I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
      “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
      There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
      She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

      Heya! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I needed
      to ask. Does managing a well-established blog like yours require a
      large amount of work? I am brand new to writing a blog
      but I do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience
      and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
      Appreciate it!

    I was using it and I honestly don’t detect a difference. Also, in the before/after pictures to prove it increases your FPS, before’s FPS was higher than the Minecraft with Optimine installed. So, a lot of questions there..
