WI Zoom (Wurst-Imperium Zoom)

The zoom from the Wurst Client as a standalone mod. The WI Zoom Minecraft mod lets you zoom in and out with the mouse wheel, providing up to 50x magnification without the need for a spyglass. This mod is fully compatible with OptiFine and Sodium, but unlike OptiFine’s zoom, WI Zoom lets the camera move in a logical way, without making it wobble around. WI Zoom supports all of the latest Minecraft versions, including snapshots.

Requires Fabric API

NOTE: Do not install this if you have the Wurst Client. This is already included in Wurst and having it twice will crash the game.

Will you add Forge support?

Aside from the 1.12.2 Forge version that already exists, no. A modern Forge version is not being considered due to Forge’s new CoreMod policy (effective since 1.13) as well as issues with the Forge community’s treatment of modders.

However, the experimental Patchwork project can sometimes make Forge mods and Fabric mods work together. Depending on which other mods you use, this might work with WI Zoom.

Also, keep in mind that many former Forge mods now have Fabric versions (or have switched to Fabric entirely due to the above-mentioned issues).
