Atmosfera is a client-side ambient sound system with customizable, atmospheric sound resources for Minecraft Fabric.


The Atmosfera System

  • The client-side environment allows users to run the mod even on Vanilla servers.
  • The system provides a dynamic 2D soundscape depending on several conditions and modifiers within a sphere/hemisphere around the player:
    • Dimension,
    • Distance from the ground,
    • Height,
    • Percentage of biomes,
    • Percentage of blocks,
    • Percentage of the sky visibility,
    • Period of the day,
    • Rainy weather,
    • Stormy weather,
    • Submerged in a fluid.
  • The playback uses smooth loops and transitions.
  • Settings powered by Cloth Config API for volumes and subtitles can be configured with or without Mod Menu.
  • Sound files and events are stored as resources allowing users to customize and create their own Atmosfera resource packs.
