Aurora Rubealis adds one of nature’s most beautiful effects to the Minecraft world. That’s right: you get to see Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, in your Minecraft world for the very first time.
The best part about the Aurora Rubealis mod is that it’s subtle. As the sun sets, the Aurora Borealis will become gradually brighter before eventually lighting up the whole sky. As the sun starts to rise, the aurora will slowly fade.
Despite its fancy graphics, Aurora Rubealis has a minimal effect on in-game performance. Server load is also very minimal, which means that anybody should be able to install this mod regardless of the power of the rig.
It’s also important to note that the Aurora Rubealis mod is realistic – you’re not going to see the Northern Lights if you’re in a jungle biome or other warm-weather, near-equator region. Instead, the aurora only spawns in cold, ‘northern’ regions of the game (i.e. biomes with snow).
The creator of this mod, MrRube, put a fair bit of effort into making the aurora look its best. It’s easy to appreciate this effort every time you look up at the night sky thanks to the Aurora Rubealis mod for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2/1.7.4/1.7.5.
