Aether 1 was one of the largest and most popular Minecraft mods of its time. With the Aether II, we aim to recreate that same amazing experience but with a fleshed-out sense of quality. The mod includes amazing features such as our advanced party system, our vastly redesigned dungeons, and much, much more. Aether II is designed to be the polar opposite of the Nether, a grand realm of floating islands in the sky with dark secrets beneath. Getting to the Aether is easy -- a 4x5 glowstone portal (just like the Nether portal!) and a little water will open the path to the skies. Discover new unique mobs and items in this vast and beautiful world.
New Ores, Items, and Armor
While exploring the Aether you'll come across a variety of new ores, such as Ambrosium and Gravitite. Search and discover each new ore and unlock its secrets!
The Aether II is also accompanied by sevreal new sets of armor each accompanied by its own special ability. A full set of Neptune armor, for example will allow you to walk across the depths of the ocean with ease, and a full set of Valkyrie armor will allow you to fly! Getting your hands on these mythic sets won't be easy, though. Fight and defeat dungeons, and if all else false, try your luck at using some Continuum!
Dungeons and the Party System
One of the most revolutionary additions to the Aether II is our advanced dungeon and party system, allowing you to team up with friends to tackle some of the Aether's most difficult (and rewarding) challenges together. Explore the newly designed Slider's Labyrinth, a reimagination of the original Aether's bronze dungeon, and fight the realms darkest and most dangerous foes.
Once you've assembled your party, have the party leader simply right click the dungeon's entrance, queue up, and enter the depths of the labyrinth. Dungeons regenerate their loot, enemies, and bosses after a party leaves, ensuring everyone gets a shot, not just whoever finds it first.
While the original Aether's dungeons only took up a small area, the Aether II's Slider Labyrinth occupies entire islands, meaning you'll have no shortage of loot to grab, enemies to fight, or chambers to explore! Each dungeon contains five minibosses that must be defeated before gaining access to the final boss, the Slider.
How are you going to conquere dungeons with your friends without having a way to meet up? The Aether II is built on the Minecraft Forge API, allowing an easy way to create and manage Aether multiplayer servers! Minecraft Wiki provides a simple tutorial on how to get your own server up and running.
But if you don't want the hassle, just hit the "Official Aether Server" button on the main menu. We've got an awesome server set up by the awesome team at CraftNode Hosting complete with an myraid plugins and an awesome community to help you get started!
