Vanilla Minecraft with Forge and some essential mods that don't add new blocks, items or worldgen but provides great quality-of-life features. Player will experience the regular vanilla gameplay the way it should be with all small tweaks, features and enhanced optimization. Immerse into the world while playing well-known game on old map(you don't need to create new map) or create a brand new world. Modpack will be useful for those who play vanilla, providing small features that you even never thought about and for creative builders, who just love to build, making videos and timelapses. Again, this modpack don't add new blocks or items, so you can change minecraft versions easily, delete mods or join servers without fear to lose anything.

F7 - Key wizard. Shows a visual representation of a standard QWERTY keyboard, allowing you to easily find keys that are unbound or conflicting.
F8 - Light level overlay.
F9 - Toggle chunk borders.

Suggested mods:
(I didn't include them because some of them are FPS-heavy)

This is vanilla pack with client-side mods so FPS shouldn't be a problem but If you want even more FPS you can disable weather effect in Dynamic Surroundings config(or in-game).

*Some features from mods such as Dynamic Surroundings\FastLeafDecay\etc will not work on servers.
