Smooth Font Mod for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2

Smooth Font Mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 draws all fonts (including resource pack’s fonts) smoothly for better readability on all scales. Furthermore, you can use any font installed on your computer.

Smooth Font Mod

Main Features

Normally, characters are not displayed cleanly in the following situations.
However, this mod can display characters cleanly even under these situations.

  • Scaling down (especially, unicode font)
  • Fractional scaling (ex. x0.75, x1.25 etc)
  • Oblique viewing angles

These features work by just installing this mod, basically any settings are unnecessary.
Furthermore, this mod has the following additional functions.

  • Any fonts installed on your computer can be used.
  • Enable the Large GUI scale in unicode font mode.

And, this mod is created as it should be effective for most texts of many other mods.

Usage of external font files

Since v1.15, external font files in specific folders can be used in addition to fonts which are installed in a system. By default, font files located at <minecraft folder>/fontfiles folder can be recognized and these fonts are listed in a font selection list of a GUI. The font folder paths are configurable in a config file. Most of TrueType, OpenType and Type1 font files can be recognized.

If you include font files in your modpacks, please pay attention to the permission and the license of the fonts.

  • Faster font image generation by multicore CPU.
  • Reduce used memory.
  • Better mod compatibility.
  • Performance improvement by optimization.

Compatibility configuration / commands

  • /sfont renderers
    Print font renderer classes managed by smooth font.
  • /sfont precision <high | normal | vanilla> <font renderer id>
    Set a font width precision mode for the specified font renderer.
    It will be saved to config file simultaneously with the change.
    High precision: Best quality in font width.
    Normal precision: Moderate quality and better compatibility in string width calculation.
    Vanilla precision: Vanilla equivalent quality and maximum compatibility in string width calculation of unicode font.
  • /sfont <disable | enable> <font renderer id>
    Disable or enable smooth font functions temporarily for the specified font renderer.
    Disabling can nearly completely bypass the smooth font functions for the target font renderer. This is temporary change and NOT saved to config file.
    To make changes permanent, please add the font renderer class to “unaffectedClasses” in config file manually.
