Support for Optifine

The Twitch/Curseforge app did not allow for modpacks to contain the optifine mod as it is only avalible for download on optifine.net. It would be great if there could be proper incorperation of Optifine while still allowing the creator to make money off it.

    Admin response

    We welcome openly any creator to join CurseForge as home for their mods.
    As mentioned in the comments, mods must receive permission to be included in modpacks and we will continue to honour Optifine's creator (and others) choice.

    We do plan on reaching out and keeping in touch with various creators currently not on CurseForge to discuss collaborative options.

    I'm sure the OptiFine devs haven't put it on CF for a reason, just like the Lucky Blocks dev (I will never know or understand why they don't though)

    If you guys want Optifine when you run a modpack you download the latest Optifine version for the MC version the modpack runs on (website is optifine.net in case you don't know where to find it). Then when it downloads don't click install and instead click extract. You then either directly extract the forge mod into your modpack's mods folder or extract it to someplace you know and then move the mod into your mods folder. (the file it extracts should say the version of Optifine that it is as well as "MOD" at the end to distinguish it from the installer file) I'm hoping that what I just said is not overwhelming and you guys can easily follow it all.

    Work out a deal with the Optifine developers. You want them in the ecosystem and I am willing to bet there are negotiable terms if you discuss.

    The choice of where a mod is hosted is made by the author of the mod. Unless the Optifine developer were to put their mod on Curseforge themselves, it's not going to be available through the Curseforge app.

    this would be nice however the major limitation is the optifine creator who doesn’t allow optifine to be included in mod packs without implicit permission
