I found a mod for Minecraft that adds a lot of adjustments and optimizations to the graphics handling, OptiFine.
However, I'm a bit unclear whether I need to patch the server in addition to the client.
Is there a common "knowledge" to this I'm lacking? Such as "yes, you will always have to patch the server"?
If not, does anyone know specifically for this mod, OptiFine, if I need to patch the server as well?
And... if I need to patch the server, does it do anything permanent to my world, such that if I later on decide to remove it, I can still play on the same world without problems?
