I've been trying to make a modpack of my own, but I have been having some serious lag issues with it.
Here is the modlist:
I've tried tweaking settings in both optifine and betterfps, but neither seem to give substantial FPS gains at all. Some other packs (such as All The Mods) have significantly better FPS than what I'm working with here. My specifications are as follows:
AMD FX-8350 Processor (Stock Cooler with Stock Speeds)
32 GB of DDR3 RAM (10GB of which is dedicated to minecraft via settings.)
SAMSUNG EVO 250 SSD (The only internal drive on my system.)
AMD R9 390X GPU
ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z Motherboard
Windows 10 x64
Java Version 8 Update 162 (I am not using the included java version with forge, I am instead manually choosing the 162 update's version every time I launch the launcher.)
I was wondering how I would go about increasing FPS rates with this modpack. Once Thaumcraft / Mystcraft are updated, I will be adding them too if and when, so hopefully they won't bog down FPS increases from here.
Your using the Java installed with the Mojang launcher. Try changing that to the version installed on the PC (if its the latest).
1. the CPU is from 2012
2. The GPU is from 2015
It also a hardware problem trying to run the latest MC version. Newer MC versions require newer hardware.
Yeah well. I cannot afford DDR4 RAM, a new motherboard and a new Ryzen CPU and a new CPU cooler currently until it's already old enough to be bad. I've already got Java 162 (which is higher than the latest java available from the java website.) It doesn't matter much (and in some modpacks, the 162 version runs slower.)
Dynamic surroundings is not a mod you want in a pack if you're having problems with lag. I'd remove ambient sounds as well, and possibly the hats mod. Basically keep removing the non-essential mods until it's in a state you're content with. If it's still not running well with all those mods removed, then you have a problem.
