It's not really legal to post Mod Jar's on 1-off download sites. Please revise to use a direct link to the mod author's download page. 

 

Other than that, great work!

 

The problem is, the mod author's website ( http://optifine.net/downloads ) , no longer shows old versions. Tekkit is Minecraft version 1.6.4, and the mod author's download page only goes to 1.7.2 at the lowest if you scroll down all the way. So, the only way to get OptiFine version 1.6.4 is through external, unofficial download sites. People kept the .jar and reuploaded it to other websites for people that need it. So, the author no longer has his official download for OptiFine 1.6.4, so I have no choice but to use it from a website that decided to share it unofficially. 

 

Also, I don't see how this isn't "legal". I'm not generating any revenue or profit from the link. It is legal to distribute the file in any way, as stated in the privacy policy on his site. I'm basically just sharing the file while the author's copyright infringement policy are still in the file, unchanged.

It states nothing about distribution of the mod in his Privacy Policy on his site as you state. 

 

Privacy Policy here: https://optifine.net/privacy

 

And even further he literally tells you to not do exactly this on his MinecraftForum.net page and all other *legit* download sites:

The mod OptiFine is Copyright © 2013 by sp614x and the intellectual property of the author. It may be not be reproduced under any circumstances except for personal, private use as long as it remains in its unaltered, unedited form. It may not be placed on any web site or otherwise distributed publicly without advance written permission.

So how can I fix this? I can't find an official download for OptiFine 1.6.4...
