Okay so....I installed Optifine HD for 1.14.4. I also have Embellish and Minecolonies installed. Once I installed Optifine and logged into my world all the blocks for Embellish and the Villagers of Minecolonies were gone, just gone. Also, while in creative and opening my inventory which has three pages, I only had 1 page, like normal. None of the mods were showing. So, I removed Optifine, gave up on my Minecolony world after checking to see if the blocks returned and the Villagers, which had not. I started another world and all was fine, all my mods showing, embellish blocks showing. THEN....I decided that I wanted a shader (I really want a shader). So, I downloaded SEUS-renewed and had to install Optifine 1.14.4 HD U F4 for it to work. Opened up my world....all the embellish blocks were gone and there was absolutely NO shading. Another bust...
WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?
Honestly, I'm not expecting any replies, because no one replied to my other post....but I'll try.
I know this is going to sound like a really REALLY dumb question here, man, but did your launcher set the game profile to the Optifine one after installing the optifine .jar? If that's the case, it's extremely easy to overlook because it happens automatically for me, every time I install optifine. I learned that last year, when I struggled to get the blasted thing to work bEcAUse APpaREntlY installing optifine to forge changed since I last played in 2016... anywho, if the profile in your launcher is set to the forge one(of the right build), and all your mods are in the folder where they should be.. then, well - I'm not sure what the issue would be, beyond that. I'm starting to figure out that in between windows, java, and microsoft's patch job on Mojang's coding, it is really pesky to even install just a few mods without breaking everything. I'm sorry that it sort of hit the fan, do you at least have backups of your world?
sorry if I don't sound cordial, it's like 4 AM here and I can barely form a sentence o:
Hey, at least you responded!! Thanks for that. Yes, Optifine had set the game profile to itself like it was supposed to. ::shrugs:: It's okay though. Just just dick around with Minecraft to waste time, so I try to not get too bent out of shape when things don't work right.
It's all good! The modding community may be a lot smaller than it used to be, but there's always help out there! I remember the first time that happened, and I'm pretty sure I reinstalled minecraft, forge, and optifine before I figured it out days later lol
