Random Suggestion: I like to have the fog off to improve my FPS,and I play lot's of server-side mini-games, but with fog off, blindness has no effect, and blindness is used in one of the many game I play, and I feel it ruins the effect to not have it. So my suggestion is that, with blindness your render distance would be shorter, (still no fog) and it would simply look like you had an ultra small render distance.
Just waiting on this now, before I switch to 1.6. There's one mod that I must have or I can't/won't play Minecraft and it's Optifine. The Anti-Aliasing and MipMapping take a pretty ugly game, and make it beautiful, and runs smoother to boot
Unfortunately I have an AMD card so there's no forcing Anti-Aliasing for me in OpenGL
First, great job on the mod. My fps record without optifine is 37. My fps record with optifine is 137. (+100 fps gain)
Second, because i have such a terrible computer, I keep my render distance at tiny at all times. With this render distance, you can hardly see anything with fog on. Turning fog off helps me see and helps gain my fps.
Well, I downloaded the 1.6 launcher and kept the old launcher. Now with that out of the way, Optifine is a REALLY good mod! I love it by my computer is still laggy. It's runs a little faster with Optifine. But when I use someone else's computer is runs SUPER FAST with Optifine...I need a new computer! XD
Is a moderator seriously going to have to lock this topic again, because you people can't quit asking for Optifine? It will come when it comes. The mod creator is being nice and sharing his progress in the OP, that's good enough. FFS.

Can everyone just stop making posts for an update until the 1.6.1 update is out? I know 1.6.1 just released this morning but it doesn't mean that you can just go into any 1.5.1 mod thread and make posts that say "to update the mod to 1.6.1" and then other people do it. Other people that use the mod tell people that the mod is updating and get ed off after a day or so because these people keep making update spam, so be patient until Optifine is updated, ok?
I haven't updated to 1.6 yet, but I went ahead and got the new launcher. For some reason, running 1.5.2 with the new launcher removes or blocks Optifine from my game--it's completely gone from the options menu. Any thoughts on why this happens and what can be done about it?
