Top 10 Ultimate Best Minecraft Modpacks 2019

Best Minecraft Modpacks
Take a complete Minecraft Journey with modpacks!

Modded Minecraft adds a whole new dimension to the game!

Minecraft is one of the most infamous games in gaming history. Set in randomly-generated worlds, players face dangerous terrain crawling with creepers, zombies and other dangerous foes! 

Minecraft recently passed its 10 year anniversary as many users have faithfully played since its launch. On average, each player spends over 750 hours playing Minecraft in their lifetime! At some point, the same old routine of killing mobs, gathering wood, and building homes gets old. The Minecraft community have realized this so they developed modpacks at your disposal to make the game more interesting. Keep reading to hear about some of the community’s best creations!

1. OptiFine

Take a look at these graphics!

OptiFine is a god-send for all Minecraft players who cannot afford a top-tier gaming device. It allows the game to run significantly smoother no matter the age, model, or brand of computer you use. It also includes high-quality textures and a bunch of animations that are not in the vanilla version. 

OptiFine’s Features:

  • You will see an FPS boost. OptiFine reduces lag spikes and polishes gameplay, which may double the FPS your device is capable of supporting. The mod includes 34 animation and detail options, allowing you to turn on or off specific visual effects of your choosing that may increase FPS further.
  • OptiFine supports HD textures. These give you the chance to install resource packs and experience them to the fullest. From custom lighting to custom font characters, this mod covers every visual effect a player is looking for. OptiFine increases your device’s render distances as well. This allows you to see even more of the beautiful textures you have installed.
  • The most underrated feature of OptiFine is the ability to zoom in and out with a press of a button. You can now see up to 3x further in your creative and survival worlds. This may make your gaming experience much more pleasurable. Make sure to use this feature to look for creepers on the way to your base!
  • OptiFine gives you the option to alter how the day cycle changes. You are given three options: default (night and day), day only, or night only. Choose your preference and live in your customized world! Sadly, this feature is currently only available in creative mode and is impossible to be used by those of you who aspire to be Bear Grylls .
  • Shaders are known for their game-crashing effects on Minecraft but OptiFine lets the game fully support the shaders you wish to use. Your builds will look more like eye-candy than a pile of blocks when using a shader pack!
