Minecraft modders customise the in-game experience by using mods to create additional in-game effects. One of the most popular mods for using shading and HD textures is Fabric, but running it at the same time as OptiFine usually causes errors. Alternatives include Minecraft Forge and ModLoader for Minecraft.
OptiFabric is a free, essential mod tool for Minecraft that allows you to use addons like OptiFine with Fabric Modloader without any problems. Minecraft modding enthusiasts will appreciate the flexibility that OptiFabric provides. Contrary to popular misconceptions, it’s not a replacement for Forge. Unlike Forge, OptiFabric doesn’t offer any interoperability – it’s just for adding lighting and texture effects in an error-free way.
What is OptiFabric?
OptiFabric is a mod loader for Minecraft that enables you to run Fabric and OptiFine add-ons at the same time without causing errors.
How do I install OptiFabric?
You can install it by following these steps, but before starting, ensure that you already have the Forge modding framework.
- Install Fabric and the Fabric API
- Download your selected mod file
- Download and install OptiFabric and copy the mod package to the Minecraft/mods folder
Is OptiFabric safe?
It’s perfectly safe to install, provided you download it from a reputable source. However, if you get an alert from Windows warning you about the file, check the integrity of the site you’re downloading from.
As the Minecraft mod is not available from the Microsoft Store, be aware that untrustworthy sites may bundle the program with malicious software.
How do I remove OptiFabric?
The simplest way to remove OptiFabric from your Windows is to follow these steps:
- Either press the ‘Start’ button or click in the Windows search box and start typing ‘Remove a program’
- Click on ‘Add or remove programs’ when it appears in the search results
- In the Settings page, select OptiFabric in the list of programs and click the ‘Uninstall’ button
Change your Minecraft universe
OptiFabric is a useful mod. Until now, simultaneously running the Fabric and OptiFine mods would frequently cause multiple errors. This program resolves that issue. If you are a fan of Minecraft, you will enjoy the compatibility modding features OptiFabric provides.
