performance

The official server modpack to improve FPS & performance for both low & high-end systems for 1.18.2.

Installing Fabric

You'll need to have Minecraft 1.18.2 installed first!
You can check out our guide
here.

Fabric Download

If you're using the official minecraft launcher, make sure to select '0.13.3' as your loader version when installing fabric. Loader versions 0.14 and above are for 1.19.

If you're using TLauncher, you can just select "Fabric 1.18.2" in the version selector.

Installing the Modpack

Now we can install the official server modpack!
This adds most optifine features and massive performance increases.


You can download it with the links below!


Just extract the contents of the zip file to your mods folder, which is in '%appdata%\.minecraft\mods' by default.

How much will I benefit from the modpack?

Expand this for a detailed summary of what each of the mods do.

Dependencies (Required for the mods to run)

Cloth Config - Used by all mods. (!cloth-config-6.2.57-fabric)

FabricAPI - Used by all mods. (!fabric-api-0.51.1+1.18.2)

Indium - Used by most visual mods. (!indium-1.0.3+mc1.18.2)

Fabric Language Kotlin - Used by Fabric Capes. (!fabric-language-kotlin-1.7.4+kotlin.1.6.21)


Performance & Bug Fixes

*AdvancementsDebug - Makes the Advancements logic faster and fixes crashes caused by StackOverflowErrors. (!advdebug-2.3.0)

*BetterBeds - Removes rendering of beds as entities and replaces it with the default model renderer. (!betterbeds-1.2.0)

*Blanket - All-in-one mod that fixes a lot of render issues, server-client desync issues, etc. (!Blanket+Client+tweaks-1.0.2)

CullLeaves - Optimizes leaves by a lot. Optional texture pack to make the leaves look better.

This mod's effects are a lot more apparent in Jungle biomes, where are lots of leaves.

If you're using the quality modpack, I highly suggest using this texture pack along with it. (!cullleaves-2.3.2)

DynamicFPS - Minecraft takes massive amounts of resources when running in the background.

This mod makes renderer lock to 1FPS or none at all (configurable) when Minecraft isn't in focus.

This is especially great if you AFK with Minecraft. (!dynamic-fps-2.1.0)

EnhancedBlockEntities - Optimizes block models. (!enhancedblockentities-0.6+1.18.2)

EntityCulling - Prevents rendering of all the entities and tile entities that you don't see.

Doesn't impact visuals, but massive performance increase especially on places with lots of entities like mobs, hoppers & chests, etc. (!entityculling-fabric-mc1.18-1.5.1)

*FastChest - Same effect of BetterBeds, but with chests. Up to +33% peformance increase when surrounded by an abundance of chests. (!fast-chest-1.2+1.18)

*FastOpenLinksAndFolders - Removes the lag or freezing caused by opening links in-game. (!fastopenlinksandfolders-1.1.0)

FerriteCore - Dramatically decreases ram usage. Effects are more apparent depending on load. (!ferritecore-4.2.1-fabric)

Item Model Fix - Fixes the transparent lines you see between the borders of blocks and items. (!item-model-fix-1.0.3+1.18)

Krypton - Improves network performance for Minecraft. Useful for people who have lower internet connections or want lower latency. (!krypton-0.1.9)

*Ksyxis - Speeds up world loading by skipping vanilla's unnecessary 441 chunk loading-unloading on every login. (!Ksyxis-1.1)

LazyDFU - Leads to faster boot times while reducing the lag spike that minecraft causes on boot. Doesn't reduce performance in-game.

Comparison here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXDqJ598kKA&ab_channel=AssertNotNull. (!lazydfu-0.1.2)

*LazyLanguageLoader - Heavily decreases the lag spikes caused when switching languages, by only reloading the language instead of all game resources. (!lazy-language-loader-0.3.0)

Lithium - All-around optimization mod. (!lithium-fabric-mc1.18.2-0.7.9)

NotEnoughCrashes - Better handling of crashes. More logfile information, and now returns to the title screen instead of completely closing Minecraft when it crashes. (!notenoughcrashes-4.1.6+1.18.2-fabric)

Sodium - The most important mod in this list. MASSIVELY increases FPS. (!sodium-fabric-mc1.18.2-0.4.1+build.15)

*SmoothBoot - Prevents Minecraft from using all cores thus freezing low-end pcs when booting up. Confirmed to be able to work in tandem and help with LazyDFU. (!smoothboot-fabric-1.18.2-1.7.0)

Starlight - Second most important. This makes the lighting engine for minecraft up to 3500% faster than vanilla. (!starlight-1.0.2+fabric.89b8d9f)

*ToolTipFix - Fixes tooltips that extend farther than the screen. (!tooltipfix-1.0.4-1.18)

*TieFix - Fixes a lot of UI bugs, such as not being able to pause when in nether portals, etc. (!TieFix-1.10.0)

IRIS [Q] - A shaders mod that supports sodium. Currently is in its alpha stages for 1.18. (,iris-mc1.18.2-1.2.3-build.35)

Note that Optifine shaders will not always work for this. A list of usable shaders are available here.

*XLPackets - Prevents the player from being kicked when trying to join a server with a datapack or resource pack that's too large, as long as the server supports it. (!xlpackets-2.1-1.17.1)

anything else?

More optimizations will likely come here, but the performance modpack above is 95% of the way there.
Setting guides are not really practical since they depend on what machine you're running Minecraft on.
