Java Edition FAQ

How Does This Stuff Work, Anyway?

If you’ve installed a resource pack, you can use CITs!

CIT stands for Custom Item Textures, and is an Optifine resource pack feature for Minecraft: Java Edition. CIT resource packs allow you to decorate your world with custom 3D models by renaming an in-game item via an anvil, and then placing them inside of item frames. CITs are different from a mod, which means you don’t need to install multiple things or work around compatibility issues when playing on the latest version of Minecraft.

Minecraft mods, on the other hand, rely on mod loaders like Forge or Fabric. They work with only specific versions of the game and require you to have your game modded with mod loader in order to work in your game. Mods and CITs each have their advantages and disadvantages, but neither is better than the other!
