I doubt it will need OptiFine (I will still look into it). However, we are using Minecraft Forge, as it should prove useful. We will have to wait and see if it's compatible with Better than Wolves, but I must inquire as to what IC2is (I understand than IC normally means Industrial Craft).
IC2 is indutrialcraft 2, the main differences is a smoother items and blocks(exc, batterys can be partially uncharged, charging isn't instant, wires don't take up a whole block anymore) some new items and blocks, and that it uses mcforge.
I do not approve of "omg not telling wouldnt want to spoil the surprise!" remarks. First of all, the idea of finding recipes in the game on your own is an interesting concept. The problem is I HAVE A LIFE! Minecraft is already a very time consuming game (a good thing) but when you factor in having to ****ing figure out all the recipes in the game yourself, thats just not realistic. I would have to say that 99% of people who play Minecraft hold no reverence to finding the recipes on their own and look them up on the wikia or youtube. Recipes should be able to be "invented" at some point in exchange for exp. See the book mod in my signature if you agree (well my idea isnt necessarily part of the thread).

Seriously, there needs to viewable crafting recipes in the game. Go support this idea. Also click on my profile to view my space thread under find content.
