Rubidium Mod (1.19.4, 1.18.2)
Created by Asek3
Rubidium Mod (1.19.4; 1.18.2) is an unofficial adaptation of the popular Sodium Mod, designed specifically for compatibility with Minecraft Forge. This modification retains all the classic features of Sodium while ensuring it is fully functional within the Forge framework. However, it is important to note that Rubidium is not and never will be compatible with Optifine.
Key Features of Rubidium Mod:
1. Modern OpenGL Rendering Pipeline: Rubidium Mod boasts a state-of-the-art OpenGL rendering pipeline for chunk rendering, utilizing multi-draw techniques. This results in a significant reduction in CPU overhead (approximately 90%) when rendering the in-game world. This enhancement can dramatically improve frame rates for most computers, barring any GPU or other component bottlenecks. Even if the GPU struggles to keep up, users will benefit from more stable frame times due to the CPU's ability to focus on other rendering tasks.
2. Compact Vertex Data: Vertex data for rendered chunks is streamlined, resulting in a near 40% reduction in video memory and bandwidth requirements.
3. Multi-threaded Block Updates: The mod takes advantage of multi-threading for nearby block updates, substantially minimizing lag spikes caused by chunk updates.
4. Advanced Culling Techniques: Chunk faces that are not visible or are facing away from the camera are culled early in the rendering process, eliminating unnecessary geometry processing on the GPU. This can significantly reduce memory bandwidth requirements and provide a modest speedup for integrated GPUs.
5. Optimized Chunk Loading and Block Rendering: Rubidium Mod features numerous optimizations for chunk loading and block rendering, resulting in faster chunk loading and less impact on frame rates.
6. Enhanced Vertex Building and Matrix Transformations: The mod includes several optimizations for vertex building and matrix transformations, significantly speeding up block entity, mob, and item rendering for those instances when excessive chests are placed within a single room.
7. Improved Memory Management: Rubidium Mod offers numerous improvements to in-game memory management and object allocation, reducing memory consumption and minimizing lag spikes caused by garbage collector activity.
8. Smooth Lighting Effects and Graphical Fixes: The mod provides many graphical fixes for smooth lighting effects, ensuring optimal game performance without sacrificing visual quality.
9. Fluids and Special Blocks Lighting: Rubidium Mod implements smooth lighting for fluids and other unique blocks, enhancing the overall gaming experience.
10. Smooth Biome Blending: The mod offers smooth biome blending for both blocks and fluids, resulting
