Clumps Mod for Minecraft 1.20.4, 1.20.1, 1.19.4 and 1.19.2, completely changes the game’s orb generation, which will significantly reduce performance slowdowns. That is, this mod serves as an “optimisation”, as the number of experience orbs will decrease.
For example, if previously when killing an entity, it would drop two or three small experience orbs, now it will only drop one instead (though it will give the same percentage). Therefore, the player will receive exactly the same amount of experience, but without having to collect as many orbs.
In addition to that, one of the most desired changes by the community is related to the automatic collection of orbs, as now they will not take long to be collected. Previously, when the situation arose where dozens of different orbs were obtained, they stayed around the player’s body.
This is precisely what the creator of Clumps has changed, as it will now be automatically inserted into the body, without taking as long as in the default version. This measure, apart from being aesthetically pleasing, will also support the other FPS optimising add-ons.
In short, Clumps is all about improving game performance, as well as eliminating the huge amount of experience orbs that can be generated. All this has made it one of the most downloaded mods in the history of Minecraft, and one of the most desired mods in every release.
