Leaves causing FPS issues – Fixed with a Resource Pack!

<!– SC_OFF –><div class=”md”><p>For a while now, when you put the leaves setting on &quot;Fast&quot;, it will render leaves the same as if you set it to &quot;Fancy&quot;. This would cause people with less capable computers to have massive FPS issues when entering, or even being near jungles, roofed forests, and even regular forests. Yesterday I figured out how to fix this with only a resource pack, no mods or other means to edit your game needed.</p> <hr/> <p><strong>Examples</strong></p> <p>Video demonstration – <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZIJ6H3MRrs”>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZIJ6H3MRrs</a></p> <p>Images:<br/> Fix off – <a href=”http://i.imgur.com/ecUCidH.png”>http://i.imgur.com/ecUCidH.png</a><br/> Fix on – <a href=”http://i.imgur.com/jSuFoS2.png”>http://i.imgur.com/jSuFoS2.png</a></p> <hr/> <p><strong>How does it work?</strong></p> <p>Now that Minecraft uses JSON files to handle modelling blocks, you can change how blocks are modeled in a resource pack. Because of this, I was able to change leaves to render the same as stone, for example. This makes it so the faces of the block aren’t modeled when they are covered by another block, meaning there are much less faces to render overall.</p> <hr/> <p><strong>Important</strong></p> <ul> <li>This only works for 1.8 and above, due to JSON files only being introduced in 1.8</li> <li><del>You can’t use this with Fancy leaves, as it would just render like an x-ray texture pack. The pack comes pre-packaged with the opaque, fast styles leaves from version 1.7 and below. You will have to manually replace those textures if you want to use it with a different pack</del></li> <li>The ZIP file in the download isn’t the pack, the file inside it is. Either extract the file to your resourcepacks folder (Not the ZIP), or copy the file directly into the resourcepacks folder (Using copy/paste or dragging and dropping)</li> </ul> <hr/> <h1><a href=”https://www.mediafire.com/?a5s4kdqkq531f6l”>Download</a></h1> </div><!– SC_ON –> submitted by
