The Midnight is a mod being developed by Cryptic Mushroom that adds a new, mysterious and scary dimension to explore. It is a dimension of darkness; the only light comes from crystals and the various life of the dimension. You may travel willingly to this dimension, though you may unwillingly encounter a rifter and be dragged into this strange and hostile world...
The Midnight was originally an entry for MMD's SpookyJam 2018, but it has now moved from alpha to beta, marking the beginning of a new chapter as we work toward our first release!
Minecraft 1.12.2 - 1.14.4: To get to the dimension, you will need to find a glowing, red rift. These will spawn randomly during the night both above ground and in caves. Rifts are often accompanied by unfriendly figures known as rifters.
Minecraft 1.15.2: To get to the dimension, you will need to find a red heap of mass in the overworld. At night time, the portal will activate, and you will be able to traverse into The Midnight. Though before you go into The Midnight, make sure to be prepared! The Midnight does not welcome newcomers.
Issues and Compatibility
If you have found any issues with our mod, you can click the "Issues" tab at the top of this page to go to our issue tracker.
As of right now, we are actively adding features to the 1.15.2 version of the mod. The 1.14.4 has support for bugfixes only but is not currently being worked on. You may submit issues on The Midnight for the 1.14.4 and 1.15.2 versions of the mod. Do not submit any issues for the 1.12.2 version of The Midnight. Furthermore, we have no plans of porting The Midnight to any version of Fabric or any version less than 1.15.2. You can find more information about the Forge LTS system on the forum post regarding it. Please note that if your issue is a duplicate of anyone else's, an active developer may remove your issue in order to remove excess clutter.

FAQ (Will be updated soon)
Q: How do I get out of the dimension?
A: Find another rift in the dimension, it will lead you back to the Overworld. However, they only spawn at night in the Overworld so if that condition isn't met then you won't find a rift for a while. An alternative option is to use this command (only works on The Midnight 0.4.6 and lower): /summon midnight:rift
Q: Can I use The Midnight in my modpack?
If you want to incorperate The Midnight into your modpack, feel free, but do know that The Midnight is extremely buggy when it comes to compatibility with other mods. This has been address and will be worked on soon.
