📚 Original Description
Many sprites for this mod were made by Johndona1245! Thanks much for the help! This mod will make the Nether 100% survivable, so that you never have to travel back to the Surface to collect items or blocks. All parts of the Glowood Tree are explosion resistant (to a degree), making ghast fireballs hardly a nuisance! Tools, weapons, blocks, trees, sand, glass, minecarts, boats, stairs, almost everything in the Surface world now has its own equivalent in the Nether!
The Nether takes a few Minecraft days at least to acquire lava and make obsidian, so making a portal and travelling to the Nether shouldn’t be a break, but should be a greater challenge than the surface, so it’s not as boring. The Nether is very similar to a world like the Surface, but always night, and very dark, and hellish, obviously. The Nether is survivable, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy! So don’t complain about how difficult it is, and how you’ve died too many times! This means you just need to try harder and get better at minecraft. This mod doesn’t–to any degree–make the Nether so hard that it’s impossible to play. Remember: Have fun!
