Optifine HD Mod 1.17.1 → 1.7.2

Optifine HD Mod for Minecraft 1.17.1

Optifine 1.17.1 and 1.16.5 is one of the most commonly recognized mods amongst the Minecraft community–and for good reasons. Widely regarded as one of the few mods that revolutionized the way Minecraft is played, Optifine has added a multitude of features that smooths performance, enhances graphics, and allows hardware to better process the game’s textures.

But that’s simply Optifine in general. This particular mod enhances Optifine for 1.17 builds of Minecraft. Optifine HD focuses on making the game more aesthetically pleasing while giving a considerable boost to performance speed. Many players who use this build of Optifine will notice a significant increase in framerate. While a noticeable spike in framerate is a common feature, Optifine HD provides many other features as well. In conjunction to processing performance, this mod also provides support for HD textures. Some notable examples are HD fonts, animated terrain and item textures, custom colors, custom palettes, and custom lighting. This mod also allows for more variable render distance, ranging from tiny to extreme. Some sky textures are visible in short render distances, a feature not commonly available in vanilla.  This mod also adds mipmaps support, making it so objects at a distance have an easier time rendering and therefore look better than compared to a vanilla experience. Optifine HD also adds support for simpler visual features, including fog control, better grass, better snow, and clearer water textures. Sometimes the simplest improvements are the most noticeable, and this mod is a testament to that concept.

On the more technical side, Optifine HD mod adds advanced features for those who are extremely familiar with the more complicated side of visual effects. Anisotropic filtering is one such example, providing support for mipmapped features within the game. Antialiasing is also provided, which often adds smoothness for some of the rougher, more pixelated textures seen in-game. V-Sync is provided as well, increasing the average processing performance by adjusting the framerate to better match the refresh rate of the player’s monitor. Support for Advanced OpenGL is added as well, a feature most noticed by players adept in advanced graphical features. In Layman’s terms, OpenGL adjusts the in-game artifacts, creating either a better visual experience or a better processing performance. With Optifine HD, the player can adjust how the game loads chunks. For strong processors, a player can adjust chunks to load at an incredible distance so that moving from one point in the game to another feels more like an open experience rather than a string of loading up sections to the game. For those with less powerful computers, chunks can be preloaded. This often allows certain chunks to not be loaded, making it so the game will not waste resources on loading an area that will not be explored. What good is loading up parts of a game that aren’t used, anyway?

Finally, Optifine allows for an incredible amount of graphical configuration. Certain animations, such as fire, water, lava, explosions, particles, and many other animations can be disabled to further increase processing performance. By default, these features are enabled. If you are looking for a mod to increase the graphical aspects of Minecraft, or you simply want the game to run faster, Optifine HD is definitely worth checking out.

So… is the 1.14 ever going to be supported by forge or do i just have to live without the GL Shaders? Or is there a possibility of separating the GL Shaders from opifine again, so that not everyone is inconvenienced?

goutam

I like

Josh

Ughhh… Java? Really? I feel like its the 90s all over again…

Taylor James

Hey this latest version of Optifine has a “Clear Water” feature, and I actually want to turn it off, how would I go about doing that?

Taylor Guccione

Hey, so I’m a big fan of Shaders, and so of course Optifine has been a great ally in that. Although I updated to the newest ver (1.13.2) and none of the water seems to work properly with my shaders, I thought it was the Shader’s them selves but after some investigating I found that this newest ver. of Optifine seems to have some “Clear water” feature to help the new underwater content become more visible.

I believe this feature is what is messing up my water though, its like this clear water feature is overriding the natural flowey water that the Shaders provide, is there any way to change this?

I’ve thoroughly investigated the options in game and could not find anything regarding this “Clear Water” feature, I’m assuming it might have to be done out of client.

Hi

I don’t see 1.12 download… Wonder if mistake?
(also it says 1.12 at top to those who say, “it doesn’t show so it isn’t out”)

minefor

cum il instalez?

jecfurniture

When you launch Minecraft and click the mods button you should now see the mod is installed.

mekarmotor.com

In conjunction to processing efficiency, this mod additionally provides help for HD textures.

Jinxter

When there will be OF for 1.12?

Kittena

How do you download shaders in this mod?

Dormdude

Shaders do not work for the 1.7.10 version but they do work for all the other versions of the mod. Kinda impossible to use shaders without this mod because the other shaders mod does not have all of the options this one does. Hope you fix it soon.

Frankenstein

How long until Optifine 1.11 will be ready?

buby

This is upsetting. I have found Optifine 1.9 to have NO shader support, wasted a good chunk of my time trying to make shaders work on 1.9 WITH Optifine.

We R. Borg

Why can’t I install Optifine anymore (or Forge for that matter)?
The installer keeps telling me it can’t find the launcher and that I should try to manually start MC first.
Upto 1.9.3 I had no problems at all, but ever since I haven’t been able to use Optifine anymore. Anybody got a fix?

Elizabeth

How do I install a shader??? Every shader says I need to go here! I already downloaded this, now how do I get a shader?

GeorgiaPlaysYouTube

Yay Its Out You’re The Best Optifine!

GeorgiaPlaysYouTube

I Know You May be Working On It But Seriously my Minecraft Realm Is Vannila And Boring AF, I Need Shaders.

GeorgiaPlaysYouTube

Hey When Is Optifine HD Coming Out for 1.9.3 – 1.9.4? Its Really Hard To play Without Shaders On My Realm.

Firecore

Why don’t my shaders work?

Your computer still sucks Optifine just enhance’s it’s suckiness and helps your game render more frames every second therefore the game is smoother.

Sounds like your computer sucks nine runs perfectly with optifine 1.9

f

Is this a virus?

PotOPotato

FAKE!

When you click the download link for Optifine 1.9 the url is “Optifined” not “Optifine”

hectocotylus

This mod is causing an issue where at certain angles mobs and blocks dropped will turn invisible. They faze in and out depending on how I look at them. Any known fixes?

Kristin

Why did i get a message that said that 1.9 isn’t safe??? Is it just a bug?

Fidelia

You do realize just cause 1.9 is out doesn’t mean this will be updated right away. They need to work on it you know? To check for bugs and stuff. It will never be a quick process.

David Kitchin

Of course its a ‘pre’ version, but that’s because its not officially for download yet, its just hidden in the website

Blu_Flaming_Endy

Join this server It is WIP tho so dont hate on it

KahveLatte

GOOD!

Checkzz

They really shouldn’t advertise this as a 1.9.. Like I don’t mind when it’s released, just don’t put in the title “1.9”

Muzzers

mhm yawl ever tried making a program that says hello world well this isn’t as easy plus it’s free so wait

andy

All the sites point say OPTIFINE 1.9. None of you have it. Even this site the actual OPTIFINE website says 1.9. How about a Simple sentence here from the DEVS giving is loyal followers a ETA? We love your work, but geez done lie to us.

Pottery TNT

Just wait :)

VisionaRy__

Hey xDJ_DEVIL93x, ever tried coding your own mod? I bet you could MAYBE make it say “hi” if you press F, but this isn’t something done in a day. They are working on it.

Vince

Don’t be such a whiny brat

nikola

Ben
