There are easter eggs in both the OptiFine website and in the OptiFine client. Some are only visible at certain dates, while others are still visible.

X-Clacks-Overhead#

The OptiFine website returns standard HTTP headers.

In addition to the normal headers, the website also returns: x-clacks-overhead: GNU Terry Pratchett. X-Clacks-Overhead is an unofficial HTTP header to memorialize Terry Pratchett.

Please see Special Cosmetics for more detail.

Special cosmetics are additional cosmetics that OptiFine may load.

Some cosmetics may be available under specific conditions, such as various special dates, or applying only to some players.

The witch hat is a gray hat applied to all donators automatically.

Its name is actually reused from hat_santa (Santa Hat). The original Witch’s Hat has an unknown use, but it is applied to sp614x.

It was first applied on October 30, 2021, and lasted until November 7, 2021; ~1 week.
