Although the Optifine coders are not being specifically paid to do this, I think they are working a whole lot better than the Mojang folks on Minecraft who are raking in the money. What can that mean? What I want to say to Mojang is, "c'mon, you are being paid so much, you really can do better, start putting in features that really are genuinely useful to most players." Not trying to be rude to Mojang but they aren't as good as they used to be (maybe because Notch no longer works there).Quote from Pennyforth
Oh, those lazy coders! How dare they have day jobs and personal lives and all those other silly things that keep them away from finishing Optifine 1.7.2 just for you!
(sarcasm mode off)
Here's a thought: everyone complaining about how Optifine or any other mod/plugin/whatever for 1.7.2 is "taking too long", and/or how 1.7.4 is out and snapshots for 1.8 are starting to come out and stuff for 1.7.2 still isn't done.....how about you dial back on harrassing the mod coders and point a finger or two at Mojang? You know, for ignoring the fact that adjusting mods for a significant update such as 1.7 was going to take a good long while, and just breezing on ahead with releasing further updates while people who use mods are still waiting for 1.7.2 versions? The Mojang folks know as well as anyone that mod and plugin use (especially for multiplayer, which is inarguably a solid backbone of current Minecraft play) is widespread among players, but they couldn't just, say, release a patch for any significant bugs in 1.7.2 that cropped up and then held back on releasing (not working on, mind you, but releasing) updates until the mod-coding community managed to get at least a bit caught up, could they?
In the end, we all just need to be frickin' patient, OK? I hate fog with a passion, but I can man up and deal with waiting for a solid 1.7.2 build for Optifine so I can banish that crap from my sight. Deal with it, folks.

Please make optifine for version 1.7.4 , this version have normally render distance (up to 16 chunks)
It will be updated once the 1.7.2 update is finished. They have a hell of a lot of work to do, we just have to wait (sometimes painfully).
Now, that's a bug with 1.7.2 itself, it is fixed in 1.7.4 but Optifine isn't ready for it yet (it will be soon thoughQuote from indy197905
I can't get my render distance to change. I moved the render distance slider to maximum but the render distance stays the same. Please help.
