Hey guys, just got back into minecraft. The only mod I refuse to play without is optifine. However when ever I enable optifine the clouds flicker and artifact ( note this does not happen when clouds are set to fast within optifine) The clouds look and work fine when optifine is not installed. Any solutions? Thanks.
Yes, I have updated drivers for my video card ( gtx 770 )
Could you give us your Optifine settings? Several things could be the culprit, it depends on what your settings are.
Edit: First thing you should probably do is check to see if you have fast render on. It can cause flickering in some blocks, and when clouds are in fancy, they're pretty much just blocks with no collisions.
I've been messing with the settings for a while now, starting with yours and then making my way down to default. None of the variations I tried worked. Even with the default Minecraft settings (on Optifine) it didn't fix it.
From what I've gathered, it seems to just be a problem with how Optifine works. They may have made Minecraft faster and smoother, but not without some repercussions.
I'll keep working on this problem if you want me to, but I'm pretty sure your only options left are to deal with it, set the clouds to fast, or to turn clouds off. I'd then report this to those working on Optifine and hope they can fix it.
Also, I've noticed it's not just the clouds flickering, it's the whole sky. It's not very noticeable at first glance.

Don't be surprised if one day I take over the front page of the Forum Games, and then disappear for months at a time. It happens.
