Additive is a simple, super-fast Optifine alternative modpack. It has a ton of the features you know and love from Optifine, like shaders, great optimization, resource pack features, zoom, capes. This pack is way faster than Optifine, and can even reach up to ten times the framerate.

โž• Features

๐Ÿ”ฅ Extreme Optimization!

This pack is built off my performance modpack Adrenaline. It can reach up to ten times the framerate and has a few other performance fixes. Go check it out for more information.

If you just want performance - no quality-of-life mods - check that out.

๐Ÿ” Optifine Features!

This pack has most of Optifine's key features. Heres a few:

  • Ultimate performance boost (up to ten times!)
  • Optifine resource pack features*
  • Shader packs*
  • Dynamic lighting
  • Better grass and snow
  • Optifine capes
  • Many other key Optifine features

*Most. Sometimes, parts of packs won't load properly or just break.

โฉ Very Quick Updates!

I try to update to newer Minecraft versions as fast as possible.

โ“ Frequently Asked Questions

๐Ÿ”ง How do I install it?

There are two ways to install this pack.

โฌ‡๏ธ Basic

This is a video that shows you how to install it through the basic way. Make sure you have all the dependencies (linked in the description of the video).

This tutorial was made for Adrenaline, however you install it the same way.

๐Ÿ”ƒ Auto-Updating

๐Ÿ’ก Why Switch?

OptiFine was originally a great mod offering many quality of life improvements for player in the beginning. However, over the years, its benefits have dwindled and has caused many issues for modders. This is due to Minecraft's codebase improving over the years and OptiFine's aggressiveness towards replacing entire swaths of code while being closed source making it very difficult to figure out why OptiFine has broken another modder's mod. Also worth noting that OptiFine natively doesn't support Fabric and it's hard to maintain OptiFabric. - LambdAurora

๐Ÿ“ฆ Can I make a modpack with this?

Yes, you can! Feel free to use this in any way you want! If you are making something public with this like a modpack, all I ask for is credit somewhere. You don't have to give credit - after all it's just a Minecraft modpack, but I spend lots of time maintaining this and it would help a ton. If you do want to give credit, just put this website in there.

๐Ÿ’ฌ How can I provide feedback?

If you want to talk about the pack or have any questions, please use the Discord server! However, if you are asking for a feature to be added or giving a bug report, use the issue tracker instead. Thanks!

โ™ป๏ธ Versioning

Modpack versions for older MC versions will try to replicate the latest stable version. This makes it super simple, but older versions may have less features as many mods can be missing.

This goes for newer, alpha versions as well. However, they will continue to be updated with multiple alpha stages until it has the same mods as the previous version.

For simplicity, I attempt to follow Minecraft's version naming scheme: 1.X.Y.

  • 1 is just there. I don't know why, but it is.
  • X is the release. This means adding/removing mods. These won't be made too often.
  • Y is the patch for that release. This can be updating mods, changing config files, or any other small fix. These will be made often.

I stop supporting older versions over time, but it isn't mandatory to update as they should still be very stable.

LTS (Long-term support) versions are the last minor release of that Minecraft version's major release. This means that 1.16.5 would be the LTS release, not 1.16-1.16.4. LTS versions will be maintained for roughly a year or two before ending support.
