Announcing, Aether II - Highlands
We've been hard at work on our update to the Aether II mod, from a complete rewrite of the mod's code base to a massive overhaul of every concept and aspect of the mod. New textures, blocks, NPCs, structures, you name it. And we're not even warmed up yet. We're back on track to create the best version of the Aether II yet, and we're opening the flood gates to players on Curseforge today.
What is the Aether II?
The Aether II is the sequel to the highly popular dimension mod "The Aether", set in a hostile paradise miles up in the clouds, the Aether is an entirely different world from what regular players are used to, filled with fantastic creatures and mysterious structures, the Aether is a world brimming with life and history. You'll have to relearn key ideas as the Aether challenges you with twisted materials, terrifying monsters and deep lore if you want to survive and prosper in this strange new land.
As the mod comes closer to a final release, Dungeons, Biomes, NPC settlements will pepper the landscape, offering new and exciting challenges and experiences unique to this mysterious world.
