Minecraft, what a wounderful game; well when you can play smoothly and without lag! I have recently discovered a mod that helps you reduce lag. Unfortunately it isn’t updated to Minecraft 1.8.1. But I’m sure it wont be long until it is updated. I know I can hear you. ‘SO HOW DO IT DO IT’. Well the magic begins when you install the optifine mod, it’s a collaboration mod between the optimine and the optifog mod. The mod gives you a considerable boost in FPS in some cases people have claimed it has help boost there FPS 5 fold.
The mod was voted the top mod to help improve FPS in Minecraft 1.7.3. This mod adds a lot more options to customise your game, which helps reduce FPS. The video below shows the best settings I have personally found to improve your FPS and reduce lag.
