Ready to experience a new Minecraft adventure? The Ether mod – which is different from the Aether mod – has been steadily providing Minecraft players with exciting adventure for quite some time. In the latest Adventure Update, the creators of the Ether mod have given players a totally new journey to experience in three creative new worlds.
The Ether mod is directly inspired by the popular Aether mod for Minecraft, which increases the confusion between the two mods. Here’s what the Aether Team has to say about the Ether mod:
“This mod is not a ripoff, it’s just a result of an inspiration from the Aether.”
The Aether Team goes on to explain that, due to the long time spent between releases of the Aether and the Aether II, they’re totally cool with having other people release inspiration-style mods.
So in other words, the Aether team is totally cool with the Ether mod. And now that I’ve cleared that up, I can start talking about the Ether mod’s actual features:
Here’s how the creator of the Ether mod introduces his mod, word for word:
“A new adventure in the Sky of Minecraft, now you go start a journey, go to Nether for go to Ether, you want a Light Stone Dust to make a new door for dreams. This! A dreamed World to his range, a new World. In this world you go find a heavenly creatures and good fruits to eat, a place to be explored and various rewards in the path!”
If you understood any part of that description, then you understood more than I did. Fortunately, the mod’s thread describes some additional details about his mod, including:
-New weapons like the Sword of Vulcanus, Sword of Ender, Sword of Ice, and Sword of Thunder
-Ruby armor, which has a cool red color and can be crafted with the new minerals in this mod. In fact, all of the minerals in this game have new respective armor sets.
-Enchanted Green Apple and other fruits to cultivate. These fruits have special area effects that last for thirty seconds
The highlight of this mod is the area you travel to. Players explore islands in the sky which seem like something out of a totally new planet. Trees are purple and the ground is aquamarine. Other types of worlds/biomes added in this mod include the Slime Invasion and the Darkness Age.
As players explore the worlds in the Ether, they’ll find dangerous monsters along the way. The most powerful monsters – including angels and arcangels – drop some pretty phenomenal loot. The ultimate goal of this mod is to challenge the guardians of heaven. Before you do that, however, you better be prepared to battle through dungeons and other challenges.
