Disable Agricraft Particles

A lot of players use Agricraft as way to enchance the speed at which their crops grow. Typically a single Agricarft spinkler can be used to multiply the speed, however, the effect does stack. This can pose a problem as all the particles from this causes a considerable amount of client-side render time/lag. This means that you will need to disable the particles for optimal FPS and to not lag out while around some bases. Thankfully, doing so is simple.

To disable the particles simply follow these steps while in game.

  1. Press Escape
  2. Click Mod Options
  3. Type Agricraft in the search box.
  4. Click Config
  5. Look for AgriCraft Client Settings and click it. You might need to scroll down.
  6. Click the Disable particles button if it says “false” it should turn green and display “true”
  7. Click done and enjoy the disabled particles.

Disable Dynamic Surroundings Fog

The impact of these changes will be most noticable in any situation there’s visual fog on the server. While this typically impacts FPS more than anything else it has been shown to reduce crashing from Night Vision in a few cases. Please note that this currently doesn’t solve Night Vision crashses and ShadowNode does not recommend using it.

To disable the fog effects and improve your FPS you can do so by the following steps while in game.

  1. Press Escape.
  2. Click Mod Options
  3. Type Dynamic Surroundings
  4. Click Config
  5. Click Fog Options - You might need to scroll down
  6. Turn all fog options here to false.
  7. Click done and you will have disabled fog on MC Eternal.

Disable Autorefill with Inventory Tweaks

Inventory Tweaks has been known to cause visual glitches to what you have in your hand and is in your inventory as a whole. As a result you might wish to disable to avoid it. Should you have the visual glitch you can typically resync it with what is actually there by simply logging out or opening an inventory other than your characters. Some examples of non-character inventories are chests, ender chests, pouches, AE2 Terminals amoung others.

To disable it is fairly simple and can be done from within your inventory screen.

  1. Press E if you’re not already within the inventory screen.
  2. In the top right section of this screen you will see a button with 3 horizontal dots. Click this and it will open a configuration screen.
  3. Within this configuration screen you will see an option on the right hand side at the top listed as Auto-refill: On you will need to click it once to make it change to Auto-refill: Off.
  4. Click Done and enjoy!
